    What is Tna?

    Post by PhenominalXX1 on Mon Dec 23, 2013 9:32 pm

    A discussion topic as much as a question. What is TNA, a pro wrestling company, obviously but what is it aim, does it want to compete with WWE? who is driving the company forwards? what is there plan? what is the companys USP and Identity?

    I've tried watching lately and I feel like, no one really knows what they're doing or where they're going, there's no leadership and they are just on auto pilot, ticking over, waiting for something to happen, which I guess will be the sale of the company

    any thoughts?

    TNA is like that ex girlfriend that you know you should stop seeing because she always breaks your heart but you remember all the good times you had with her and think maybe she can change, but she never does.

    Wonderful description! TNA is similar to the WWE in that you wish it could go back to its glory days. My favorite time in the WWE was definitely the attitude era, TNA it was the beginning years, especially 2003-2006. The matches during those years were some of the best matches in wrestling. TNA truly was about nonstop action and included some amazing talent that the WWE would never even think of using properly.

    As TNA fans, you just hope and pray that someone will get Dixie out the way and get TNA back to those roots.

    As much as I love 2003-2004 it wasn't about nonstop action. There were tons of promos. I actually think this past year was one of TNA's better years (Like 5th or 6th best).

    Yeah but at least the promos then lead to some excellent matches, now promos just lead to mediocre matches with a screwed up finish so that we can get longer promos and more matches that are short and disrupted.

    I just want for TNA to get back to the days of elite X-Division wrestling, and matches that just made you go wow! I havent had one of those in a while

    I DVR'd iMPACT and here's what I remember.

    Dixie is trying to be Vince McMahon as a heel owner and is a terrible actor.

    The Magnus .vs. AJ Styles match was absolutely ridiculous. Legit was like an unofficial royal rumble match gauntlet.

    Kurt Angle for some reason wrestled a handicapped match in a cage versus Kazarian and Daniels.

    And there was the WORST segment of Mr. Anderson and Bubba Ray in a funeral parlor. It was D budget movie bad.

    Honestly, I think you see AJ back in TNA before too long. He's got some dates set, and several tv taping with ROH, but he's not under contract to them. I wouldn't be shocked at all to see him return at Lockdown or Slammiversary in June so that he have a match set up for Bound For Glory.

    Being an AJ fan, I'll watch him in TNA or ROH, but I expect him to come home by the end of the summer...latest reports are they are still negotiating
