@JTB, can AJ not drawing a dime really be down to AJ?



Yes, as although it's the promoters job to push advertising and such, ultimately it always falls on the back of the top wrestler, and his runs as champ bombed critically and commercially.

He's a draw on the indies no doubt, but he's big fish there, similar to TNA being too big to be local and too small to be national. The company is on a national cable channel. It used to run legit PPVs. They go overseas and do great business. But its too small to be national. They cant draw huge crowds all around the US because they are so small.

Plus they lost their lovable scrappy underdog image. They arent underdogs anymore, just failures.

I honestly do get that side of it, but if the company is making no moves to grow its audience, was AJ really given a good chance to get over?  let's face it, within TNA he didn't cause a drop in the audience or buyrates, even if at the same time he didn't encourage growth.
