Re: Your first memories of TNA
I was a big wrestling (WCW/WWF/ECW) fan during the mid-late nineties until about 2002/3.
Then summer 2011 I heard that Sting and Hulk Hogan (old favorites of mine) were still around, but on a show that wasn't the WWE. I tuned in the next time it aired, and the first match that I caught was Austin Aries vs. Kid Kash vs. Jimmy Rave - fighting to see if they could make it to the PPV to get a contract. I was knocked out by how different it was and how good I thought Aries and Kash were and I've tuned in ever since.
So, Sting and Hogan did bring me in, but it was Aries, Kash, and others that kept me here.
