Yahoo published an article on the topic of a possible WWE and TNA co-branded pay-per-view event. Here is an excerpt.

COMMENTARY | Lately, there has been a lot of talk among professional wrestling fans about a potential WWE vs. TNA pay-per-view. The thought of the top two American wrestling promotions squaring off is enough to get any fan excited, despite how slim the chances are of such a pay-per-view ever taking place.

Prior to the 1980s, it was not out of the ordinary for the World Heavyweight Champion of one promotion to meet the World Heavyweight Champion of another promotion. Although billed as a chance to see rival belts united, these contests always ended in a one-hour draw or a disqualification. In other words, the belts didn’t change hands.

Paul Heyman

But with the WWE so far ahead of TNA in terms of popularity, it’s hard to imagine a scenario in which McMahon would agree to co-promote a wrestling pay-per-view with his main rival. Recently, Paul Heyman spoke on the subject of a WWE vs. TNA pay-per-view and made the following analogy.

He said, “A friend of mine who has way too much time on his hands just started a new beverage company here in the United States. It’s called Schmuley’s Soda Company and he’s now distributed in three stores in the Bronx and two in Brooklyn. He would like to do a global promotion with Coca-Cola. I don’t suggest that Coca-Cola would be profitable having to do a global co-promotion with Schmuley’s Soda Company. In the same way it would make no sense for WWE with 95 percent global share to do an event with TNA with its 5 percent global market share.”
