I believe its been in the works for a while ya.I think the poll is real though. I think they wanted to make sure it was the right choice.they asked fans what they thought about bringing it back over a month ago.

Have a feeling they bought a bigger one

Whoever asked about the taping.its this thursday

With WWE, you know what you're signing up for. With NJPW/PWG/ROH you know what you're signing up for and it isn't that dangerous of a style. TNA has simply said "Talent be damned" and made a change effecting them because we (the audience) want them to do it.
I don't remember The Dynamite Kid taking any bumps in a 6-sided ring. The top talent in any company will keep on popping the gimmicks (because of schedule/ring/wrestling style) and nothing is going to change that.

Also, the audience give the wrestlers their money so they can pay their bills, so... It is what it is.


Hopefully they make some alterations to make it a little easier on the body though.

Honestly, where has the 4-sided ring gotten them since 2010? The year when things started to turn for the worse(except for 2012)? Hope the ring is bigger this time around.
Where will 6 sided ring get them? The way they are right now no where.

Ring shape had nothing to do with the end result. Its ridiculous to even associate it with the result.

Re: It's officially six sides

It really states a lot about the direction of a wrestling company when they can't even decide how many sides they should have to their fucking ring. And when you decide on six sides. Twice. Fail.

Vincent K McMahon:

"Despite the way I would feel personally about someone, if it's the right business thing to do, I'll do it for our audience."

"Giving it to the audience is probably the easiest thing. Finding out what they truly want is probably the most difficult."

"If you stop building stars, which we never do, you wouldn't be in business."

"We love our fans, so there's nothing we wouldn't do for them, and we go directly to them."

"Again, the nice part about it is that we listen to our fans, and they're the ones who really decide who is ready to break through into that top echelon."

I think it really shows how much Hogan and Bischoff changed pretty much everything about the company. From the way the show was booked to the people on camera to even the way the show looked on television.

When Hogan left, I'm sure they wanted to go back to the way things were, but they wanted to see what else they could do with the resources they had. My guess is, now that the six sided ring is coming back, TNA is going to try their best to be an alternative to WWE like they were pre-Hogan era. Which is what they should have been doing the entire time.

Re: It's officially six sides

At this point the ring doesn't matter. If people are wanting unique or different then I'm afraid you're going to be sorely disappointed. It's sad that TNA would put this up for a vote for random people on twitter who may not even be TNA viewers/fans while completely ignoring their talent. Ideas like this is just more proof that absolutely nothing is going to change. Fans should be disappointed rather than excited after this turn of events. It's stupid shit like this that reinforces my belief that TNA cannot be saved. Can't expect to succeed when the company is just a damn plaything for Dixie.
