TNA's brief history has been one of two steps forward, two steps back. Among many organizational struggles, TNA's chief problem lies in their inability to differentiate themselves from the WWE.
Former ECW and WWE wrestler Bully Ray is TNA's current world champion. He beat Jeff Hardy—also formerly of the WWE—for the championship, rendering TNA as WWE lite.
TNA's social media reach has also been suspect. The company clearly needs a social media guru to help drive an endless social media audience toward their product.
Currently, WWE afterthoughts Zack Ryder, Santino Marella and even WWE announcer Justin Roberts have more followers than TNA/Impact Wrestling's official Twitter account. That can't be a good thing.
God forbid TNA ever get bought out by the WWE—a promotion that has proven to thrive in the face of competition.
Expect otherwise talented southern workers like AJ Styles and James Storm to don overalls and a straw hat if they ever had to work for the Fed.
