Actually, I think WWE would be in big trouble without their TV revenue.

 

 You are correct . The WWE TV deal with Comcast/ NBC Universal  their bread and  butter.. ROH  is in good shape because Sinclair owns over 100 TV stations and is buying the Tribune Company . Plus Sinclair runs ROH like a real business , not a vanity project. GFW / TNA has a barter deal with POP TV..and their TV  taping are a free attraction in a  theme park. I believe Anthem is losing major bucks and they want out. It would take someone like Paul Heyman to save this sinking ship. Just don't let Paul E. handle the money and you got a good shot a turnaround

There isn't anyone who can somehow magically turn things around for this company. It's BEEN dead ever since Spike kicked them off. They had to take a much smaller deal from Destination America to get on with them and then they got downgraded again to a barter deal just to get on Pop TV.

There just isn't a way for the company to make enough money to fund TV tapings on a network that isn't paying them to produce the show. And there isn't even enough of a fanbase now to viably do touring house shows and there certainly wouldn't be one if they stopped doing TV because they can't afford it.

 

And Lucha Underground is really in the same boat because as soon as the people shoveling money into the furnace get tired of seeing it all go up in smoke, that's gonna go away too.

It's strange to think that this has been a zombie company for as long as it was considered a 'viable' one by this point.

The weirdness with the Jarrett/GFW story continues.  Apparently he updated his Twitter and Instagram profile talking about how he has new projects coming and is looking forward to things to come.  He also posted a bunch of inspirational slogans about working hard, etc.  Basically all giving the general impression that he is moving on to a new project or projects of some kind.
