I watched TNA back when Roode had Ms. Brooks as his manager, through his Beer Money days, and then to his solo title run. But I haven't watched in at least 3-4 years. I suspect that somewhere between 2004-2016 more wrestling fans watched TNA at some point than you realize.
It was not a literal point. You said you have watched TNA which means you wouldn't be part of that 2 million anyways. I'm going to guess there are more WWE fans who have not watched TNA than have watched TNA. Casual fans are very likely to have never watched TNA.
TNA at it's peak got a 1.5 rating. Raw that same night got above a 4.
Again, let's compare Roode to big names. John Cena. Brock Lesnar. The Rock. Stone Cold. Undertaker. Shawn Michaels. HHH. Roode is not even remotely popular as any of them. Those are A+ guys. Roode is talented but let's not pretend he is a giant star.
