I have been a proud supporter of TNA but the creative direction of the company is in desperate need of help.

The following are the biggest storylines that TNA has messed up:

Why Sting Why?

The creative direction of the company is never certain and I believe this is attributed to bad booking. They push feuds from week to week only to disregard them without explanation. I for one do not care at this point as to why Sting turned into a heel. This Sting storyline has been build up without any type of explanation. In my opinion they should have addressed the issue weeks ago when the issue was still relevant.

Why in the world was Samoa Joe kidnapped?

I literally feel that this might be the biggest dissapointment of all. Samoa Joe is kidnapped several weeks ago and then left of programming without even a mention as to where he could be. Are you kidding me? by not even mentioning Joe the company made the storyline have no value. It is true that they revamped his character but it has been weeks and we have no idea why the man was kidnapped. This is truly ridiculous and the creative team has shown that they are playing Russian roullete with the integrity of the characters.

What is the Band in TNA for?

Scott Hall and Kevin Nash should not be tag team champions at this point in their career. It is my opinion that everybody that they beat just looks plain awful. Hall cannot really move at this point and I cant see this tag team realisticly beating anyone on the TNA roster. It is sad to think that TNA has the band as the representatives as the tag team division particularly when WWE has the Hart Dynasty.

Tara was given the worst retirement match in history!

It hurts even writing those words. Tara was part of the golden age of divas in the WWE and one would think that in TNA she would have been given the time to shine. What ended up happening is that we got a match against Madison Rayne that nobody really cared about. The crowd was dead and Tara retired without any type of worthy send off. True she was in bad terms with the company but really TNA?    


This character has become pathetic in the eyes of many wrestling fans. If this is the major contribution that Hogan made to TNA then I feel bad for Dixie Carter.
