Has any angle that TNA ripped off from WWE been done well? I'll be the first to admit that the Nexus was a fiasco, but TNA will find a way to do it worse.

Every angle has been done before.

And where do you think WWE got those angles from?

All wrestling angles are re-hashed and re-cycled.

To an extent yeah, but there's a limit.

Doing a "talent search" angle where one of the commentators cuts down the clear favorite for stupid reasons, leading up to some kind of invasion angle? That's not just similar, that's a blatant NXT/Nexus rip-off.

Why? He's young, he's got wrestling skills, and would be a decent talent for the X-Division. Sure, he's not the best on the mic, but he makes up for that with dazzling skills.

After this, every invasion angle is a rip off.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Bryan Danielson was already well known in the indy circuit(That's an understatement), whereas Joey Ryan is just simply more entertaining than the last guy on Gut Check.

NXT was an already defined group of people, whereas with Gut Check we have no idea who they are trotting out this week.

Joey Ryan is the favorite now but the situations are drastically different for defining the favorites. (see both above points)

NXT was a full fledged show, and while they "fought" for a WWE contract, all the wrestlers were already under contract in some capacity. Bringing in Morrison and The Bucks now is much different than people that have been on TV for the last few weeks staging an uprising.

You can't knock an angle before it has even begun because the direction it takes could be different, could be good, and could make for good TV.

Re: Joey Ryan

First, I don't think an invaasion angle would be a bad idea, IF well done.
But think about it. TNA doesn't have a lot of X Division talent right now. Ryan's match was against Aries.
Maybe these guys (Ryan, The Young Bucks, etc) will invade Destination X!

Kurt turned out pretty good, so if they can get another one like him I'm down...

Re: Joey Ryan

If we spend time arguing over who came up with what first, this thread will never end.

It's always an option down the line, but I don't think they should use it. I like what Gutcheck is right now. And John Morrison would never be on Gutcheck. He's not an indie worker.

Fuck who's the baddest a person's status depends on salary
