Uh shouldn't an NWA affiliated Corgan promotion running weekly ppv's where Magnus is a top star have a TNA tag?

I didn't watch it, but the Primetime Live debut was tonight and the show had a bunch of buffering issues and Aldis vs Bennett was only a few minutes long.

Once upon a time ROH had a hot angle between Davey and Eddie and internet PPV buffering issues pretty much killed it dead, this is a problem you need fixed mega-immediately, Billy

It's not a hootenanny, it's an extravsganza!

$8USD per episode seems a bit much, but you can bundle the first four episodes for just $23.99

Once upon a time ROH did an iPPV with buffering issues.

Then they said they fixed it and the issues were worse on the next show.

Then they said they fixed it again and the issues were even worse on the next show.

I'm half-convinced it was all just a ploy to make Hulkamatt (at least I think it was Hulkamatt) look like a dang fool for talking about what good value each show was going to be shortly before each one started.

yeah this is exactly why i'm saying Billy gotta fix this quick, rather than ROH who had the problems linger and linger and even get worse

a good number of people here were very excited for Davey vs Eddie Best in the World and it went to complete poo poo multiple times

Am I misremembering, or wasn't one of their iPPVs affected by the fact that the place they held it in had no/very lovely Internet, and they ended up trying to stream it off of someone's cellphone/wireless hotspot? I vaguely remember this happening.

It's possible this also happened in ROH (and the building having lovely internet story is one I recall from around that time), but this definitely happened for a non-PPV TNA event.

I vaguely remembered it being an ROH iPPV that took place somewhere in Florida, so I did some digging and I think it was Showdown in the Sun 2012. I remembered it being one of the many other indy iPPVs and shows that took place around Wrestlemania time that year.

The TNA thing was a special twitch stream that Josh was trying to film and commentate using his cell phone because the club/bar they were running it in seemed to have no internet or lovely wifi and no cables were run. Also there was coverage deadzones in the venue, so what ended up happening was some guy used his iphone and basically just shot everything from ringside moving around, which turned it into a better show in my estimation because he followed the action well and we didn't have to deal with commentary.
