Yes.  I know we are going on 17 years, but when ECW and WCW both went out in the spring of 2001, their audience didn't start watching WWE.  Half of the wrestling audience eroded when Vince bought WCW - since then, half of WWE's audience eroded too.  TNA got decent ratings, and they grew as the product was compelling.  They sunk when it stopped being interesting.  The three big "ifs" in this are:  If you find somebody that has enough of a bank account that they can lose millions to startup, and if you find somebody that has the ability to book wrestling that people want to see, and if you can get a HUGE name that people want to follow and will commit to 3-4 years, I think you can get off the ground.
