Opinion: It’s kind of hard to mock this one or really blame the company for what happened. WWE is simply far more popular and far more important than Impact Wrestling and there’s no way around that. If the average fan has the option between the two, they’re going to take WWE every single time and that’s not changing anytime soon.
