TNA Hard to Kill turned out to be a total banger with some of the most interesting storylines and matches featured on the show. For TNA fans around the world, Hard to Kill turned out to be one of the best shows in the company’s history. 

The success of the event was hinted right in the beginning when estimations were made that the show would surpass the 60,000 mark for television and streaming buys. However, as per the latest update on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the show seems to have done much better than expected. 

The latest update from Dave Meltzer stated that the PPV earned around 20,900 buys on television alone. Considering television and streaming buys together, Hard to Kill is expected to have surpassed 65,000 buys by now. However, with no increase in the TV ratings lately, this spike in TNA’s success might not last long. 

“TNA Hard to Kill is now at 20,900 on television alone which is remarkable because based on usual trends of television and streaming they would be well over 65,000 buys in total. That would pass the first Samoa Joe vs. Kurt Angle match as the largest PPV in company history, which is insane considering they are on AXS rather than Spike and the main event was Alex Shelley vs. Moose. If anything, it showed the short-term value of the TNA name. It appears to be short-term because there’s no increase in TV ratings that followed such a big number.”


TNA Hard to Kill was clearly big business for the company. However, it would be interesting to see if the company could retain its position with a growing audience amid one of the most popular eras of the wrestling industry. Stay connected to Ringside News to get the latest updates on the story.
