TNA(and soon GFW) both have way too much Southern appeal going on. From Hermie Sadler to other Nascar racers and Baseball players almost no one had heard of, why did TNA insist on keeping with the Southern feel and not try to capture a more mainstream and Northern feel like WWE has going? It's crazy and something I don't get at all. That's one of the few things holding them back.
Baseball is considered southern? I always felt it was more northeastern/midwestern.
In terms of culture, as a midwest guy I can say that there aren't many cares for baseball unless you live in a big market city (like Chicago). Actually I think Hockey is starting to become a bigger deal than baseball actually.
