  1. Great, more good news for TNA. Hopefully expanding into the Chinese market will expand their brand even more even if it is only an online streaming service. Anyone know how big of an online channel Youku is over there? Is it the Chinese equivalent of NetFlix or Hulu or is it a mere Vudu or Xfinity?

  3. 22nd most visited website in China, 111th globally. If comparison.. wwe.com is ranked 2083rd globally. Wrestleview.com is ranked around 131,000

  4. So potentially, TNA will have considerably more eyes on it than WWE Network? Sweet! What a coup for them.
    And good citing of figures, Vince. Internet High 5!

  5. Eh, it’s still a step in a positive direction for TNA to be airing in the world’s biggest market.
