TNA Impact Discussion Thread ; NO SPOILERS
 
Where the hell has the TNA discussion been lately? I haven't seen a show in a very long time but am shocked that it just sort of disappeared.

What's going on that it has lost so much momentum? Even when they had smaller names - you would hear about a match or a feud. Now they have guys like Hardy, Angle, AJ Styles, Hogan (yea yea yea.. he's still a name), and the list goes on - yet i hear nothing about this program.

TNA still exists? WHO KNEW! :sarcasm:

KesselBuiltMyHotrod 04-13-2012 11:58 PM

I used to watch with the hope that it would get better. Then I watched just to make fun of it. Then I stopped watching.

I used to watch TNA on a regular basis. I was a big fan of AJ Styles, and Samoa Joe as well. Samoa Joe came in on fire and had that sick feud with Angle and than they made him into a jobber. And Hogan, Bischoff and company came in and the rest is history.

BrickAHL 04-14-2012 12:33 AM

I have it on in the background almost every week while I do something else but I have missed the last 3 weeks. I'm just happy that they are pushing their original talent now instead of relying on other guys.

Crimson Skorpion 04-14-2012 12:54 AM

Too much influence from BS-type people have ruined the product as a whole for me.

17futurecap 04-14-2012 12:59 AM

Get Hogan and Garrett Bischoff off the show!

This x1000. Actually, I still DVR it, a bunch of episodes with pile up and end up deleted but I will watch it occassionally when I'm bored right before work Thurs night...however, I'm mostly fast forwarding through the matches. Complete trash bag now...used to be cool but Hogan and Biscoff really put their stink on it.

Who the **** is Garrett Bischoff

I've read about it but haven't seen it - it's Eric's son who, I guess, is getting tons of play of Impact.

The Shockmaster 04-14-2012 04:27 PM

I tried watching TNA once. I can now never gain those 15 minutes of my life back.

Duddy 04-14-2012 07:16 PM

read the responses in this thread, you really think anybody who watches it wants to talk about it on this board?

nevermind that you have Roode vs Storm for the title, the Guns who just came back against Magnus and Samoa joe for the tag titles, a to everybody shocking :sarcasm: Daniels/Kazarian vs. Styles feud, Hardy vs. Angle, Mr. Anderson just returned same goes for RVD.

but hey just look at Bischoffs son and Hogan.

Fro 04-14-2012 07:23 PM

i haven't minded it...been a TON better than it was about a year ago...

At one time - the TNA discussion rivaled the Smackdown thread. TNA was building momentum. The average wrestling fan would at least tune in or check out a PPV.

It just seems to have no interest to the common fan. I found that quite strange.

Bad Natey 04-14-2012 08:32 PM

Hogan and co.ruined the company.

Right before Hogan came in, TNA had two of their best PPVs of all time. Hasn't been the same since.

Bingo, got sick of people, most of whom don't even watch, just coming in crapping all over TNA regularly so I stopped bothering posting in here about it.

Only even saw this thread because it popped up in the most recent post display thing and was curious what was being said in it.

ColePens 04-14-2012 09:13 PM

The point of this thread wasn't to **** on TNA. It was to discuss what's going on and how the momentum died off. You at least have to admit that to be true.

TNA fans have been edgy in my experience. If you don't like their product, they just fight back with "you just don't watch or understand it." TNA's goal was to be a big time wrestling company. I hear more about ROH matches than I do TNA.

Vincent Vega 04-14-2012 09:24 PM

TNA really is an awful name for a company that doesn't make bras and panties.

End of Line 04-14-2012 10:18 PM

TNA needs to got back to the six sided ring and get rid of that old WCW ring they've been using.

Lets be honest here: ring shapes have nothing to do with ratings.

Even AJ has said that he now prefers the 4 sided ring because it's much better to take bumps with.

If you don't like the product that's fine, but don't take shots at people who do. I can't stand the crap that is the WWE right now, but I won't go in the Raw thread telling everybody how much it sucks on a regular basis.

They are were they are, the 2nd biggest wrestling company in the Us and honestly I don't care if they're 3th or 100th, I enjoy watching it. And fans arguing over ratings of what is basically a soap opera, are just plain retarted.

Shoalzie 04-15-2012 10:16 AM

Although it's gone on for a while, I like the Roode-Storm feud. The Bischoffs/Hogan/Flair stuff is so played...I like it better with Sting as the "GM". Cool to see that the MCMG is back in the tag title mix...I hope they get the belts back tonight at Lockdown.

hbk 04-15-2012 11:26 AM

I just find that every time I'm interested in the product TNA drives me away by bringing out any combination of Hogan, Bischoff, Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson, etc. Stars who do the same thing that I was watching 5-10 years ago with little or no changes to bring me back in.

I like Samoa Joe, I like Robert Roode, I like what they've done with Bubba Ray. I even was liking the Fortune gimmick. But they just bring out the same old same old and I change the channel.

I want to be entertained. I don't believe the current braintrust have any idea how to do that. They've tried. They've failed. I'd rather see Paul Heyman give it a go myself and have them say goodbye to Hogan at this point.

17futurecap 04-15-2012 01:37 PM

I wasn't taking a dump on TNA for saying get rid of Garrett and Hogan, just think it would make the program much better by giving guys more time that deserve it. Angle/Hardy and Roode/Storm should be great tonight.
