Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
It doesn't matter that Hogan, Flair, etc. are there; what matters is that they're there and Vince Russo is going to be booking them. There are a lot of scenarios where TNA could be successful, but a Russo/Bischoff/Hogan/Flair/Nash/Angle locker room isn't one of them. We know this fucking story already: it'll rise in ratings, maybe even compete for a time, then too many people will start putting their spoons in the gumbo and it'll unravel. Epically.
This isn't funny to me anymore. I'm really sick of this shit. Once again, there's a high-profile company that will be the mainstream media's monolith for ALL THINGS WRESTLING. When TNA does something stupid or offensive or slightly racial, people won't say, "Man, TNA is disgusting." It'll be wrestling as a genre that gets kicked in the sack. I'm not amused, and if I happen to be in Orlando any time soon, I'll find my way to...express...this sentiment to Dixie Carter, Hogan, Vince, even fucking Jarrett if he comes up for air.
The ONLY good news here is that they're getting more attention with Styles as champ, so he'll get some much-deserved exposure. Oh, and you know none of those clowns are working house shows, so they should still be enjoyable.
