Re: It's officially six sides

Never knew the shape of a ring had such a big impact on so called fans.

Mwahahaha I was thinking the same. In fairness he thinks that since he can't count to 6 but was told 6 was more.

As far as effect on wrestlers and matches over all I see little. While its supposed to be stiffer most action takes place between the ropes and half the ring is still the same. Mostly its the returning guys who will take advantage of the other sides.

I find it amusing how the people against the 6 sided are blowing off the visual aspect of it yet get so upset about the poor PPV posters.

Beat me, if you can. Survive, if I let you!

Re: It's officially six sides

I like how a lot of talent have made it known that they don't like the six sides because it's more wear and tear on the body but in a desperate attempt for ticket sales TNA has just given the small group of fans who watched 5 years ago what they wanted. Talent be damned.

This is why TNA is in such bad shape.

You should have wrote "more than you have brain cells". More than your brain cells doesn't even make any sense. If you are going to call someone names about their intellect at least be grammatically correct about it.

While I preferred the 6 sides, I didn't really think of it from a wrestlers point of view. Double A said it's much worse, and it pissed him off that the fans got to choose the ring he wrestled in. Don't piss off the best guy in the company.

Re: It's officially six sides

It's not even specifically Aries. TNA is known as a company that doesn't care a lot about talent safety already so it's bad publicity for them when a top guy is coming out and saying "This sucks"

And the sad thing is they're doing it all for a few weeks publicity. Do you think anyone is going to care about six sides this time next month? Probably not.

This is why TNA is in such bad shape.
There is no need to go back to a 6-sided ring as long as it is harder to bump on than the standard. Unless they change the mechanism and it is no longer a problem there is no reason to switch to 6. TNA is to blame for making the poll, and the fans who voted for 6 are to blame for additional wear and tear on the wrestlers. What happens if somebody gets injured? What happens if not only wrestlers have to change their style and leave out more difficult moves, but injuries go up? What is the benefit worth if TNA actually looked at the costs?

Baaaaad move for TNA. If it was a one time deal that would be so much better. But a six sided ring has the potential to decrease match quality and injure wrestlers.

This is a mistake. Hindsight is going to rear its ugly head after this is said and done. I wouldn't be shocked if they switched back after a few months.

Re: It's officially six sides

Someone got injured by the ring? Please, name me just 1 person.

AJ Styles took 3453534534 bumps in that ring and look at him now. Great shape.
