    Asked about charging fans into the tapings at Orlando, since the fans have paid for a ticket for the park, they can't actually charge for it, since it's part of the parks admission price.

    "You want to pay?", well legally, you cant.

    But there's already things in Universal Studios that you have to pay extra to go see, like the Blue Man Group, or the Rising Star Kareoke Bar, or any of the nightclubs there, so they wouldn't be the only ones charging extra if they did.

    I dont think they have a choice. I'm sure if they were allowed to charge extra, they would, because they could easily shift 1300 tickets for TV taping full of stars when they sell more than that for house shows without alot of the name guys.

    I know that WCW werent allowed to charge for tickets to Saturday Night and that was taped on the same soundstage, part of their deal to get the use of the soundstage for free was they werent allowed to make money off of it either.

    Still doesn't justify...

    "No. I think if a fan is going to travel to see us, they should get in for free to see the show."

    There's no context issue there. She's simply stating that if a fan travels to see them, they should get in for free.

    If she really believed that, she wouldnt charge for house shows or events they hold outside of the Impact Zone either, because people have to travel to them also.

    She is saying it so she can take credit for being so fan friendly, she wont even charge people to come and see her product when really, if she could, she undoubtably would.

    That's totally true. Any theme park you go too, whether it be Six Flags, Cedar Point, Disney World or heaven forbid Dollywood, they're always attractions that charge you to enter over and above the admission price. Most of these parks have season passes and they make their money on food, games, merchandise sales and these other attractions.

    It's part of their deal, they can't charge for it, simple as that.

    I'm sure it can be changed. If they're bringing in 1,300 people a week, why not?

    Because they are bringing in 1300 people regardless of whether they charge or not and part of WCW's deal of them having free use of the sound stage was they werent allowed to profit from it. I fully expect if TNA decided to charge for tickets, Universal would start charging them for use of the sound stage and TNA probably wouldnt make up enough money to pay rent for the small amount of tickets they'd be selling and it wouldnt be worth it.

    Most already knew, but this interview proves Carter has no idea what she's doing in the wrestling industry. Appearently pay-per-view as a notion is dead...I guess the clueless buffoon doesn't follow UFC numbers. Anyone that hires, continues to back, and then defends Russo is an empty-headed mark. Geez do people like Carter irk me. Thank God for people like Cornette.
