I am a bigger fan of TNA than WWE, so please understand that I am more of a critic when it comes to this brand.
The roots of TNA were steeped in the NWA and the more contemporary WCW, which is where I spent most of my time watching and rooting for Sting, Jeff Jarrett and Ric Flair.
I have never really been a Hulk Hogan fan and while I think Eric Bischoff is an ass, his ideas at times are flashy, innovative and trendy. He, along with the creative team, digs into the roots of wrestling to pull out ideas that never grow old, such as title tournaments, cage matches and the creation of stables that are meaningful to the business.
But after watching the set-up of the most recent PPV Hardcore Justice, and then learning of the results, watching video and drawing my own conclusions, I have to wonder if Bischoff and his people have taken a step backward.
There were some good things that happened Sunday night and to be honest, waiting until Thursday to get answers to my questions about what happens next is enough to tear the flesh off my arm.
But there has to be more. Too many questions left unanswered until the next PPV and the idea that no matter what was done to create an atmosphere of change, it seems like everything remained the same, with the exception of some titles changing hands.
Here is what I would like to see happen in the next few weeks.
