TNA's Announcement (2/15/2010) Live-Blog
2:20PM: Remember their last press conference? It went from Hogan announcing things about his book to announcing his signing with TNA. You think we're in store for something like that?
2:24PM: What'd you think about Against All Odds last night? The Nasty Boys/Team 3D match (and the majority of the event) ws awful. Nasty Boy Knobbs was looking super-winded - did you count how many timeouts he was taking?
2:27PM: Well, to be honest, the only bright spots were Mr. Anderson and D'Angelo Dinero, both former WWE stars who work great on the mic and in the ring. I have a feeling neither of them will be holding the title anytime soon. Why? I don't know... something doesn't sit right with me INRE TNA right now...
2:28PM: Also, I guess it was due to now selling streams of their PPVs for $15 (and annoying paying customers with bad streams), but an abnormal amount of bootleg streams got merked last night. I mean, it's illegal, but it was hard to find a halfway decent stream last night. Just saying.
2:32PM: Maybe this is all a work. The TNA stream isn't online. I haven't heard anything being announced yet, but what the hell. Stay failing, why don't ya!
2:35PM: If this isn't working period, this is an example of their steady failing. Bring something good in, but then hinder it for Lord knows what reason. TNA in 2010 = WCW Thunder.
2:38PM: Well this awesome graphic is at least going.
2:40PM: OK so 10 minutes into the established time and the lagging stream is just a TNA graphic; looks like I'm not the only one confused.
2:45PM: So now Dixie is randomly thrown up, mid-sentence, giving us stats on the January 4th show. Yeah, we know you guys did well.
2:47PM: "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome the Pop-Icon, Hulk Hogan" (cue pseudo-nWo music).
2:48PM: They keep looking around, how many people are actually there?
2:49PM: I guess I missed Dixie announcing their move to Monday nights at 9PM starting March 8th. Do we need all of this?
2:51PM: Dixie says she sees iMPACT!'s move will be an on-going thing. Credits the fans for following them throughout the years with their timeslot moves. Makes sense.
2:52PM: Hogan says, as a wrestler, he'd rather go head-to-head with the competition (i.e. WWE). Let the fans decide, which is true. But if you compare RAW's content (which isn't A+ quality all the time) to iMPACT!, there's STILL no contest - TNA loses again.
2:55PM: OK so it looks like there are 7 reporters total in the room. This is awkward. And Dixie talks about additional programming outside of this being a possibility.
2:56PM: Hogan expects WWE will say or do nothing about this announcement, which makes sense. The talk of there being an option for fans is brought up, which I 100% agree with.
2:59PM: Gotta love how he talks about people being happy, with all of the dust being kicked up over how much money that the Knockouts receive...
3:00PM: So I've just lost another half hour of my life. Thanks, TNA!
