Re: How to make TNA better in ratings?
One, have a top face. The only company that has stayed strong in the United States over the last 3 decades is WWE. You know why, because they always have a top face. A wrestling company is essentially a television show with characters and storylines. Every television show has a central character, a character who the show is based around. In the 80's it was Hogan, in the 90's it was Austin, now it's John Cena. The shows evolve around them, superstars are built up to feud against them.
In TNA, it seems like every week there's a new TNA Champion, a new guy their pushing to the top, than they fall back to the midcard after their reign is over. They need to have a top face in TNA, someone like Jeff Hardy. Now, I understand Jeff isn't the most reliable of people, and he is a proven drug addict, but it's worth the risk. Book him as the top face of the company, have him continue to win matches and stay face, no matter how even if the TNA fans begin to boo him. Get behind somebody and stay behind them. Just like what WWE did with John Cena.
Jeff is a great worker and has alot of charisma. He could easily bring in more fans, especially kids. And kids are the future of the generation of fans that'll be around for the next decade. To continue to book to the older fans doesn't make sense anymore. Have Jeff Hardy booked as a top face and resilient, dominate champion.
Now, I mentioned the kids are the next generation of fans. There's the other thing, the product of TNA. They continue to book the show based on older fans. But, that's not going to work for the long term. They should either go PG, or turn Jeff Hardy into a John Cena type face and have him geared towards the kids. If they want to at least compete with WWE they have to try either of the two.
I also can't believe how much you let Cena ruin your own lives by doing what he does.
You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.
Grow up. Seriously.
If you don't understand why John Cena wins all the time, maybe professional wrestling is not for you.
