It wasn't so much the move it was more that there didn't see to be a plan to follow up on it.
Storylines floundering about, a bit of a mess. Look at the segment with bischoff, hall, nash, waltman, hogan from that show...Fuck thats the nwo in the ring, if you're going to go that route have a proper plan worked out. All seemed totally on the fly week to week. Also were hogan/bischoff supposed to be faces or heels? nobody really knew. What was Hogans role? don't think he was even GM at that stage was here.

The downfall started in 2007 when they started to get too happy with signing "big name" guys. And TNA has always had a marketing problem.

Nah. It was a set back. If they didn't let Hogan sign sign all of his worthless friends then it might've had a better chance at the ratings.

TNA deciding to move Impact at that specific time didn't help anything. This was the start of Wrestlemania season in the WWE basically, so TNA was going to have a tough time regardless going head to head with the WWE on Mondays at that time of year. I never agreed with Impact moving to Mondays anyways, they should have always stuck to Thursdays. Just another move that they tried, and found out failed, much like going on the road full time was a move they tried, and found out failed.

Hey I will say this, at least TNA was attempting new moves and seeing how they would work out. Perhaps doing a bit of research beforehand, or something like that, would have been a good idea. The downfall of TNA, in my opinion, was last year when they decided to take Impact on the road full time. However, they are doing pretty well now, and things seem to be improving slowly.

Do we think in a few years when tna builds all the money back up there is a chance of them trying Monday nights again ?

They just jumped rather than testing the waters with something like a one-time PPV style special first. Even doing that they needed to avoid WWE's peak times like WM season. I still don't see TNA ever competing with WWE at any time on any level except maybe story-wise if they get a real booker.

The thing TNA fails to see is that people who want WWE style are satisfied with multiple hours of WWE each week. They needed to go in their own direction and build their own following.

The company is in downfall? Thats news to me. Still seems to get roughly the same ratings as it did pre move to Monday nights. Realistically, it's just ticking along and hasn't really had any major highs or lows as far as a business goes.

All goes back to Hogan. Not a hater of Hogan, but his salary mixed with him wanting to go on the road. Two bad decisions.

I don't think Hogan was the company's downfall.

I firmly believe they fell off after re-hiring Vince Russo in September 2006. That was an appaling decision.
