Once again TNA proves that Hogan will be its downfall.

TNA what are you thinking? How could you let Hogan change your ring?

Dixie Carter please stop this!

    This was the overall reaction of the TNA faithful. Hogan in two weeks changed the entire identity of TNA in a matter of a few shows. It has become very clear that TNA will not be able to survive all of the terrible changes that are being made.The true in ring workers in TNA have been neglected on the show to showcase the likes of the NWO veterans.

    The worst part about changing the ring was that it was the TNA trademark. It is what made TNA unique from WWE. Without the six sided ring the matches that put TNA on the map would have not been possible. The ring along with the spectacular X division matches in it was truly something amazing.

    I believe that the changing of the ring will change in ring work of the performers. It will make the action much more slow paced and not allow for some of those amazing X division sequences. I do not understand how Dixie Carter could let this happen. Hulk Hogan is a performer and should not be viewed as a booker or promoter. It is absurd for TNA to think that he along with Bishoff and Russo could propel them to the top.

    TNA changing the ring only proves that they truly do not care about their fan base. The fans voiced their opinion on the PPV Genesis only to have Hogan and Bishoff basically saying that they dont care what the fans think. This is just a insult to their fans and ruins all of the hard work that TNA put in on making their company successful.

TNA you already had the change you were looking for! 

The TNA knockouts, six sided ring, X division, once awesome PPV's. Now you are WCW before it folded. Russo is booking for you and you have same talent. You will never catch up to WWE if this continues and your company will just fail.
