What made YOU a TNA fan?
I was just flicking threw the channels one day when I see Kurt Angle. Now I had no idea back then what TNA even was, and having that I hadn't watched any wrestling since the 'attitude era' I was kind of shocked to see Kurt wrestling in a ring that wasn't WWE.
So that grabbed my attention, and then I see this guy AJ Styles. I just remember thinking to myself 'this guys awesome' and I've been a fan since.

So for me AJ and Kurt were the reason I tuned in every week (oh, can't forget velvets ass being another reason I became a fan)

I was wondering what, or who, got you watching TNA?
Be interesting to see if anyone's answer is hogan.

The WWE had drove me out of watching wrestling. I saw Lockdown 2007 on Bravo in the UK. Became hooked ever since.

I loved the Lethal Lockdown as it reminded me of the good ol' War Games concept, AJ Styles was - yes, phenomenal - throughout, the Abyss character intrigued me, the X Division stars were a revelation (although now looking back on it the cage severely limited them) and I recognised some stars; Sting, Jarrett, Angle, Christian Cage etc. It was all really unique. The six-sided ring, the all-cage PPV gimmick & that day I got back into watching wrasslin' religiously.

I've watched back through the company's history and I consider myself a fully-fledged TNA follower, attending events on the Maximum Impact tour. I love the company and the product it's putting out at the moment is satisfying me too.

The uniqueness. They didn't have cookie cutter superstars like WWE, and instead had wrestlers with gimmicks.

The X-Divson guys - Low-Ki, Styles, Samoa Joe, Daniels I loved them four when I first stared watching it wasn't just the high flying spot fest those guys and a few other could go out there and have great wrestling matches.

Sting, Cage & Angle.

Whole new concept, 6-sided ring, good old X division, most of the time creative matches etc. It was fresh air. And throughout the years it was my fav against WWE. Tho last 2 years -apart from few points (uber talented guys like AA, Roode etc )- I lost my 'fanaticism'. But it looks like onroad concept (which I pray for it too long) will gonna bring some old feelings.

In 2005 I saw the six sided ring and though it looked different and unique, then I saw the x-division and fell in love with it

The Tony!

My dad came home with an "illegal" dish, back in the day, and while surfing through the free ppv channels I saw a preview for NWA-TNA weekly ppv shows. I tuned in and saw AJ Styles vs Jerry Lynn in a 3 series match for the X-Division title. It was high flying wrestling at a time when WWE was pretty much phasing out the top rope.

Beyond that, it was wrestling. I've been watching TNA since day one and I just decided to continue watching it.
