how many fans are not going to watch because they stick with the tradition ring wrestling has used for decades?
how many fans are not going to watch because they go back to a unique ring with 6 sides?
I'm not going to stop watching if they go to 6 sides, but it will take time to get used to. I only started watching when they went to 4 sides, and part of what turned me off before was the 6 sides.
I've been watching TNA since the very first show in 2002. They've had a six-sided ring for 6 years (2004-2010) and a four-sided for 6 years (2002-2004, 2010-2014). I have a slight preference for the six-sided ring because I thought it was cool when they had it before, but it's not a deal breaker at all in if I watch. I'm just saying this seems like a pointless exercise to undertake if they were not already inclined to it.

They could have just kept on using the four-sided ring like they've been doing for the past 4 years. Instead, they started teasing bringing back the six-sided ring about a month ago, and they clearly want to do something different for the NYC shows. Hogan's been gone for 9 months. They could switched back or done this vote the day he and Bischoff left if that was the only thing stopping them. I think TNA wants to go back to the six-sided ring because they think it'll get people talking.

ever since Hogan/Bischoff changed the ring to 4 sides there has been talk from people wanting the 6 sides back. this could allow TNA to make the final decision and use 4 sides by saying this is what a majority of the fans wanted, and the way TNA will remain all the time going forward because it was the decision by the fans.

EDIT:
I could be totally wrong. wouldn't be the first time. more fans could want the return of 6 sides. if this is what would really make the difference in whether people want to watch then so be it. I should be for whatever is going to help TNA in the end. but even if people watch again for the 6 sides, I don't think it's going to matter if they don;t improve the quality of the show.

They could have done that just by continuing to use the four sided ring like Dixie said before every time she was asked for it. I don't think you go out of your way to say you're "listening" to your fans only to not make the change. But like I said earlier, we'll see when they make the announcement.

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

Hopefully they do change it to 6 sides. I'm not someone who was a big fan of TNA during their early years, I really hadn't seen a full episode until 2010(the time they moved to monday) but the 6 side seems much cooler and presentation plays a huge role in wrestling. Won't have any impact on the product obviously, but it'll at least make TNA look different

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

This is totally like the '92 WCW vote over the top rope rule.

That's the last time fans actually voted for a change in product presentation.

6 sides is lame, 4 sides for life. If they want to run some shows occasionally with the 6 sides, fine but don't make it permanent.

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

I think they're beyond the six sides at this point, before it was part of their identity..now it will just look like they're desperate, trying to win over the fans who stopped watching. Plus it's dangerous for the wrestlers and has no bearing on the actual product at all.

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

They should def keep it at 4 but do 6 sides for events like DX and some other ppvs like sacrifice

Also giving the fans a week with no way for the fans that watch the show and dont follow online an option to vote is asking for 6 sides to be back.

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

1 thing the fans of the 6-sides dont seem to realize is that the wrestlers who are responsible for all those great matches in the 6-sided ring have left. Do people really think we are going to have 5-star matches every week with people like Sam Shaw, EC3, Jessie Godderz, Robbie E, Abyss, Gunner, Bram, etc just because the ring has 2 more sides?

This isnt going to effect the wrestling quality, its a pure cosmetic change to the show. The wrestling might even become worse because most of the wrestlers on the roster have never wrestled in 6-sides, they need some time to adjust.

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

I certainly hope they listen to their talent. From what I've read from their tweets the 6-sided ring doesn't sound too popular amongst the roster. If the people performing in the ring aren't comfortable with it I think it's stupid to bring it back.
