Re: TNA Vs. Trolls
They deserve it all. Here's why. Their hardcore fans that helped build them wanted them to succeed in the worst way. They essentially gave all those fans a big F U, changed everything that the fans loved, added a bunch of stuff nobody cared for, and continue to idiotically troll away. The only thing they have going for them is their actual wrestlers, but they've also compromised that by trading great workers for overpriced has beens in the name of publicity only for that to essentially fail altogether.
WWE on the other hand, succeeds at entertaining a variety of fan bases simultaneously (at least one segment a night usually will appeal to the smark crowd), and is the most successful wrestling promotion available today. Their exposure is through the roof and they are on multiple networks.
TNA wants that big dollar that WWE has, but they've essentially tried taking major shortcuts to get there and that's not how WWE was built. Monday Night RAW in 1993 was held at the Manhattan Center. It was not an international touring show that it is today. TNA should've continued to steadily build it's own identity over these past few years. No way to know for sure, but I'd like to think they'd be much, much further along if they had.
