Re: Official 6/19/14 Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread - FALLOUT & NO IMPACT ZONE
All this complaining how the title change was not on the PPV has me impressed people have such great internet connections back in the 90's and has me wanting to invite them to 2014. The PPV product is a dying one. First it was TNA cutting back from the montly model and then it was WWE giving them free on their network. With the network, people stealing streams of PPVs, some countries giving it away free, people buying them less due to economic situations and a general lowering interest in wrestling it is just like Bob Dylan said, times they are a changin.
Beyond that, why does one need a title change to make a PPV worth it. Sure it is a nice bonus but shouldnt't be the reason to buy a PPV is entertaining matches. Title changes and surprises make them extra special but should not be the main reason to watch.
As far as Dixie she is probably just clueless and feeding her ego but if not she is a GENIUS! She is getting old school heat. If you listen to any of the old timers they will talk about the time before spoilers and fans were so knowledgable when fans would legit hate the heels. Some guys have talked about needing police escorts to leave the arena and fearing for their safety. In an age of fans cheering heels (nWo anybody) it is rare to see a heel really be despised. Now it you have to becareful that the hate is not a go away hate ie X Pac heat. That can be a killer for wrestling talent. BUT for someone who is not a wrestler and can come and go it is great.
We all know TNA is teasing Dixie going through a table and if it would happen it would be great. We would hear one of the loudest pops in recent history if not all time. Every TNA fan would cheer as Dixie crashes through the table and lays there. But that is a moment. Granted one for the ages but slowly the good feelings would pass. Imagine if after abusing her place and garnering more and more heat those she screwed over come back to overthrow her. TNA originals, the Founding Fathers of TNA if you will (just watched The Purge so yea...) like AJ, Daniels, maybe Lethal and heck even the man himself Jarrett standing up to Dixie and echoing what Dreamer said. All leading to a match for control of the company and/or forcing the loser to be off TV (at least a year maybe two or three). Just think of the celebration when Dixies team loses and we know we will be free from her for a LONG time. There would be dancing in the streets. The feeling of relief would be AMAZING! And after the year(s) have passes she can come back humbled and go back to her old role of appearing once in a great while mostly to make an announcment. Unlikely but one can dream.
Beat me, if you can. Survive, if I let you!
