TNA PPV Results by Year
Total Nonstop Action began in 2002 as a PPV-only entity that broadcast their weekly programming as a bargain priced PPV event. Starting in 2004, the company was able to broadcast their weekly show on national television and began holding monthly 3-hour PPV events. For the purposes of this section, I am only giving the results of their monthly 3-hour shows.
WCW PPV and Supercard Results by Year
For several years, Jim Crockett Promotions was the only NWA territory that was able to survive against the WWE expansion. The company was bought by Ted Turner in 1988 and was later renamed World Championship Wrestling. During the '90s, the company was a major thorn in the side of the WWE and at one time almost forced them out of business. However, the tide of the Monday Night War turned and WCW was sold to the WWE in 2001.
ECW PPV Results by Year
The ECW revolution started out in a Philadelphia bingo hall and became a major player during the '90s wrestling boom. The company declared bankruptcy in 2001 but was brought back to life a few years by one of their creditors, the WWE.
