TNA Wrestling’s Hard to Kill event marked a massive turning point for the promotion, ushering in the start of a new era as momentum continues to go strong every week. Now, the buys for the pay-per-view have been revealed.

The Hard to Kill pay-per-view was held on January 13th, 2024, at the Palms Casino Resort in Paradise, Nevada. As previously mentioned, it not only marked the promotion’s largest live attendance in several years but also represented the company’s most substantial live gate in approximately decade.

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the success of the Hard to Kill pay-per-view. Meltzer that it drew a strong 8,000 buys, which is considered impressive for TNA.

Meltzer added that he expects the number to grow in the coming week and a half. Meltzer suggested it might have a decent chance to be in the same lane, if not surpass, the buys of the Rich Swann and Kenny Omega match, possibly becoming the biggest since the Spike TV days. He added that it already ranked as the third-largest viewership since that era.


”Hard to Kill show did great. Right now, this is basically a week and a half out, so this number will grow. It was an 8,000 on television, which is a really good number for TNA, I’m sure it’s the biggest number they’ve done since the Rich Swann and Kenny Omega match. It actually has a fairly decent shot, I don’t know about beating that one but being in the same room as that one. It’s possible that it could be the biggest since the Spike days, certainly it’s already the third biggest since the Spike days.”

A TNA star also revealed the backstage morale for the company following the Hard to Kill pay-per-view. TNA clearly has all the momentum in the world right now and fans hope they will be able to carry forward with this momentum and end up creating history in 2024. All signs point toward that happening at the moment.
