Is TNA getting better?

I'm watching this week's episode, and I've noticed that there's more stories than just the Main event thing between Dixie and Aj.

There's the Nerd Connection(Awesome by the way)
Bad influence trying to find Abyss.
Bully and A&8's vs Anderson.
Kurt trying to reclaim his honor.

And they're actually entertaining.

So is it just me or is TNA getting better without Hogan?

NOT REMOVING THIS UNTIL...

1} Y2J either makes 10 IC title reigns,or gets another world title.
2) Ryback is fired.
3) Christian gets a decent WHC reign.
4) Tyson Kidd wins US or IC title.
5) CM Punk wins another world title.
6) The Uso's are given a shot. (3/3/14)
7) AJ Styles gets the TNA title. (BOUND FOR GLORY 2013!)
8) Austin Aries and Robbie Roode win all the gold.
9) Taeler Hendrix wins KO championship.
10) Nigel Mcguiness comes out of retirement.

Thanks to RayW for this sig.

Re: Is TNA getting better?

Haven't watched this week's episode yet lol.... but I do think the show is very slowly improving. The people that make this show worth watching IMO are Bad Influence, Bobby Roode, Austin Aries and Joseph Parks, I'd mention Bully Ray but this Aces and Eights thing is just getting painful now. No Hogan on TV means more promo time for the guys that actually wrestle and need to get over in the first place lol.

Not keeping it real in the streets

Re: Is TNA getting better?

I need to catch up a bit. Not sure where I'm at, maybe one or 2 eps behind. I'll see in a bit. In 2012, I would have said it's definitely improving, but not so much now. But imo, they're keeping a steady flow of things atm. Not sure what's going on with Angle/Roode, but they've had 2 solid matches so far, and I'm looking forward to the payoff of AJ's return.

You mean like Dixie Carter? I seriously don't see where Hogan was getting any more airtime than she is right now.

It's painful to watch her but she's getting damn good heat. I say keep at it till AJ's return. Hogan would be out tripping over his words for 2-4 promos a night. Respect for his career and all but I'm happy is isn't presently on tv.

Obviously everyone has their own opinion and that's cool, but if I have to see a non wrestler have 2 or more segments each night then I'd prefer that it be a former star who can actually act. Dixie is not a former star, and she also can't act. It would be like if the WWE decided to do a storyline where Linda is running the show and doing 2 or 3 promos per night. I would bet my life that Linda would get a ton of heat by doing that, but it's not the good sort of heat IMO. I'm not saying that Hogan was/is the answer, but I just don't think that Dixie is either, and if the compliant of someone is that Hogan took too much airtime away from the active wrestlers then it seems to me that Dixie is taking up around the same sort of time. That's just my two cents though.

Re: Is TNA getting better?

Eh, whether you like Dixie or not, her presence is part of a storyline and she's really the only one who can play the part in order to tell the story.

And TNA is getting better.

I don't have a huge problem with it because I'm still watching, but they could have had her start the storyline, but had her name a personal GM who represents her wishes, and could even read statements from Dixie. They could have had someone like Al Snow, Karen or Jeff Jarrett, D LO, or even Eric Biscoff if he's still with the company, or anyone similar. They could have done this while also playing further into her heel character by having her come out and say that she's too important of a person to be bothered by being there each and every week so she's having someone do that for her. They could have still had her appear once a month or something, and even more often than that once AJ comes back.

Anyways regardless I don't have a huge problem with them using her, but I'm just saying that if it's bad for Hogan to take time on the air away from the main roster then I don't see why it isn't bad for Dixie to do it.
