Let's start with the state of TNA...they're lost.
I should say it sucks right now but hopefully it will get better. I am sure if any of you have been watching IMPACT you know what I mean. The show is full backstage vignettes that make no sense and they spend way too much time with their female talent. Not to mention the Shark Boy, Super Eric and Curry Man stable is in one word... DUMB.
Samoa Joe really is a huge talent but, is he the champion they need to carry the company? My vote goes to Kurt Angle.
AJ Styles has been misused for so long I have lost interest in his angle with Kurt Angle (insert laughter here).
I really think the only way to save this product at this time is to begin a new trend in TNA...wrestling in the ring! Even though the ring they use has six sides (which I am reminded of every time I watch an episode of IMPACT). I think the company has to go back to simple story lines and wrestling. The biggest downfall of the product is the idea that wrestling fans are thirsty for gimmick matches. I can say that this wrestling fan is not! Wrestlers like: Christian, Rhino, AJ Styles, Sting, Abyss, Jeff Jarrett, Robert Roode, Booker T, Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, and Christopher Daniels (not Curry Man!) need to be used more. Did you notice anything in common between all the wrestlers listed? They are stars!
TNA please stop trying to create new stars. Let the glorified independent guys head to Ring Of Honor. TNA can save itself if they would only worry about what wrestling is and not what they think wrestling should be.
Bright spots in TNA: (not in any order)
1) The New Video Game
2) Beer Money
3) Jeff Jarret's return
4) The Mick Foley Rumour
5) This past Hard Justice PPV
6) The Rhino and Christian Cage tag team
