    My mma only friends said "what the fuck is THIS?!?!?". No interest whatsoever.

    I think it helps bellator but hurts impact wrestling actually. It's an easy transition to go from being a pro wrestling fan to an mma fan, but it sometimes causes the wrestling fan to lose interest in wrestling by enjoying a real fight over a staged one.

    If it wasn't for TUF Season 1 coming on right after Monday Night Raw, the UFC would probably be out of business right now. At the time Monday Night Raw was pulling 5.0 rating a week and the TUF 1 got a huge bump by coming on after it.

    But I do not think it will help Bellator. Impact Wrestling is kind of a joke and the ratings are horrible. If Impact came on after Bellator then I would say it would be good for Impact but Bellator coming on after Impact probably hurts it.

    Can't do that when you're SPIKE's bitch.

    I don't watch pro wrestling anymore, but I don't see how it could hurt. Somebody must be watching TNA or they wouldn't be on t.v. Those people that are watching TNA see the Bellator add and at least some of them tune in. I only think it could help. Plus if you implement some of the Bellator fighters to the TNA show then people might cross over.

    I am with Pashak. In the fact that I don't want to see pro-wrestling on the bellator show. The only time I could except a pro wrestling match on a card is the New Years Dream show that happens once a year.

    I've always believed that any publicity is good publicity, so IMO it helps.

    As long as Bellattor does not include pro wrestling matches in their shows there will be no problem.

    hmm when i read the title i thought we were talking about how the Olympics canceling wrestling would affect MMA... pro wrestling has always been a watered down substitute (while some people were very entertaining and the product was well written) it doesnt compare to the real thing when 2 people actually trying their hardest to make sure the story they wrote in their head comes true.. vs the ones writers put down on paper...

    WWE was the reason i accidently watched TUF one night so i say that it could totally effect people since i am proof... i just decided to catch the end of RAW one night and TUF was on after so i watched it... hook line and sinker compared to professional wrestling

    but to what i thought the title meant i think wrestling being canceled could have a trickle down effect that eventually cuts down on the number of high schools that have a wrestling program... so in the short run all of the wrestlers will go to MMA instead of the Olympics and MMA would have some really high level wrestlers in there.. but in the long run wrestlers will die out unless more private clubs are created to continue to nurture the sport.. possible but idk if its likely
