People are inpatient, but it’s building month by month. There’s no TNA bullshit of “We’re about to make the biggest announcement EVER!!!”  They say something will happen in a couple of months, and it does, whether it’s big or small. And the momentum keeps going without ridiculously high expectations. When TNA started, if I remember correctly we heard it was coming and within three weeks they were on weekly PPV.  There wasn't a full year of planning to get to this point.  I know that we haven't had AEW around for a year but I know that Cody has been planning this for a year and just needed the money to do it.  What really gets me is that a group of wrestlers were able to present their product to the Khan family and get them to sign on.   With TNA, you were dealing with the Jarrett family who had been in wrestling for their entire lives.  So if you look at the two models - TNA pretty much went bankrupt in three months and needed the Carter family to bail them out or they were toast.  Up until now, I don't think the Khan family is out too much cash thus far, and when they actually do kick off the product it should draw some people in for the curiosity if nothing else.
