How does TNA receive the worst major show and worst promotion of the year awards but win the best weekly show award? That makes no sense.

I think Lawler has been alot worse than cole, while both are bad Cole at least handled Lawlers heart attack in a very professional way and can at least call a match. Where as Lawler pretty much sells Cena and undermining everyone else just top make everything Cena does look great, all the while telling awful jokes.

Roode and Aries >> Jeff Hardy
Aries >> Rob Van Dam

- They totally mucked up Aces and 8s, making their show completely unwatchable for the past 3 or 4 months
- They featured Hogan more than anyone else on the roster
- They continue to do amateur shit like this, despite the fact that they've got tons of money to blow, and a sweet TV deal.

TNA is just not a well run promotion. They never appear to know what the hell they're doing. I personally think that RoH did more to hurt their brand than TNA, but I can't complain about the selection of TNA too much.

Agreed. Cole didn't really add anything to the product last year, but he wasn't bad. Lawler was absolutely worse.

Sort of glad to see RAw win worst TV show. Admittedly there has been worse like 08-09, which were cringeworthy.

Cena v Laurinitus as worst match is dead on. It wasn't a match it was a 20 minute 'comedy' segment with a predictable ending and to make it worse it was the PPV's main event!

Hmmm. Jeff Hardy ruined TNA. Why do I have no problem AT ALL believing that?
