Re: It's officially six sides

I don't care about 4 or 6 sides I'd prefer a more stable product, however if there is any truth in the fact that the 6 sided ring takes more of a toll on the wwrestlers body and is less forgiving then I say shame I tna for putting wrestlers quality of life style at risk for a cheap PR stunt

The improved ratings in the mid-00s had nothing to do with a six sided ring. It was because the likes of Styles and Daniels were in their prime and Carter knew her place better. In fact, had they stated with four sides during that era, those ratings probably would've been higher by like 20%.

I'm a hardcore TNA fan, tuned out when they went six sides. Tuned back in when they returned to being a wrestling company. Won't watch a single minute now. Fuck TNA for good. They deserve all that is coming to them.
Whoah Ha Ho! You really hate six sides. Ya you're right TNA should be focusing on important things and not just a different look. There is next to no advertising for TNA. I guarentee you, if you walk down the street and ask people if they know what TNA is next to none of those people are going to have a clue.

Get your name out there TNA. This ring won't solve your chaos.

Re: It's officially six sides

I'm a bit out of it this morning but is this just for TNA in NEW YORK or are they actually keeping the 6 sides after this?

Right, and these problems aren't money orientated either. Absolutely not. So they can't return to that old chestnut. Marketing takes creative thought, not money being thrown at it, although that helps.

Also, this is probably deliberately timed. They'll debut this ring in front of the New York crowd, which will be louder than usual. TNA, with their curiously private 'vote' on this, will then point to an audible and uppity crowd as a signifier that the fans really prefer this to the old ring. But in reality that's just their nature. I will absolutely laugh if reports come in that the New York crowds shit on the new ring.

But let's wait six months until easily influenced marks get over it and they're back in jerkwater venues. This will do more harm than good.

No, they're keeping it and they made a deliberate decision to debut it in front of a livelier crowd, to hype the 'success' of their decision.

Re: It's officially six sides

I have a feeling this is going to be a transition into product change.Exactly what people are saying. Ever since Hogan left they have been slowly moving away from that model. You never heard them say TNA or show that logo anywhere during that time. Once he was gone it had that TNA logo promoted more and it feels less confusing as a brand.

So ya hopefully this is the heart they are changing to improve everything else
