Re: Breaking News: Fans To Decide Which Ring IMPACT Will Use Moving Forward

In order for the company to be an alternative to the other guys you need something to stand out. Like it or not the 6-sided ring is what made them unique. It won't be the end all be all but it would be a start. There's nothing wrong with the 6-sided ring. At the very worst TNA can hire some guys that would be suited for it since they're supposedly going in a younger direction.

I want 12 sides.

Don't ask the fans, ask the fucking people who have to work in those conditions, dammit. I'm all for fan feedback on the product, but not when it's completely ignorant people dictating the working environment of the trained professionals in this manner. That's so fucking stupid.

How? Shit wrestling is shit wrestling whatever shape the ring is. And good wrestling is good wrestling whatever shape the ring is. If you have poor storylines and a weak world champion, it doesnt matter what shape the ring is. Whats funny is, the reverse battle royal, the elecrified cage, that giant red shitty dome thing and all the other dumb gimmicks happened in the six sided ring. The six sided ring doesnt sell one ticket or make one person watch. Good, exciting, hard hitting wrestling, good interviews and believable storylines that make sense is what makes you different. Not the shape of the ring. If TNA want to be different, stop with the authority figures and the heel stables and the 15 minute promos to start Impact, get rid of the Smackdown colour scheme. That would make them different. Getting rid of the six sided ring and then bringing it back is admitting they just did whatever the almighty Hulk Hogan said.

Re: Breaking News: Fans To Decide Which Ring IMPACT Will Use Moving Forward

I voted six because to be quite honest my fondest memories of TNA were in the 6 sided ring and I honestly enjoyed watching matches in it more because It was specific to TNA (minus AAA and all that I'm talking American wrestling terms). I mean I watch TNA as an alternative to WWE I want to see a different product, even when it sometimes doesn't seem that way, but whats more distant from WWE than 6 sides?

Its funny, only TNA fans can claim they are trying to be different from WWE the same week they announce the Dudley Boyz and the Hardys are getting back together and running an angle with Tommy Dreamer.

FWIW, no one publicly complained when they switched the first time in 2004 and they used it for 6 years with no problems. In the AJ Styles interview I saw, he said he didn't realize he preferred the 4 sided ring until after Hogan came in. In fact, AJ said he was mad when they first switched back because HE thought the six-sided ring helped TNA stand out. Just throwing that out there...

Of course, I've heard wrestlers say it's not much of a change to have six sides, for all I know, they'd unanimously prefer a 6 sided ring. However, if they're going to make this change, it should be accomplished through internal consultation that places an emphasis on feedback from the performers themselves.

An offhand poll in which literally anybody could vote is an atrocious way to make these types of decisions.
