Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

I didn't forget it. Bruce Willis needs a supporting cast as well. The final segment involved D'Lo Brown, Mike Knox, Festus, Devon Dudley and Jerry Brisco's son beating up former WWE champion Jeff Hardy to set up a PPV where Hardy beats Roode. They could have had the 5 TNA originals dressed up as Doink the Clown and nobody would have batted an eyelid.

Until Roode, AJ, Kaz, Daniels and Storm collectively earns more than Jeff Hardy does in year, they aren't stars.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

So now creating stars means giving them tons of money not booking them correctly... awesome.
Just give kenny king hardy's salary and keep him off tv, he will be a star under one month.
Roode renewed his contract so I don't know how much he's winning but it's definitely enough not to join the other side.

Roo is supporting cast after being champion for almost a year and beating someone called - hardy.
I mean "hogan stealing spotlights, everyone is getting beried in TNA"



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.

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

Its fact. If you have been with the company for almost a decade and you aren't valued enough to be paid like a star, you aren't one of the top stars. You are paid depending on your value. Like any job is. You have to justify the money you are spending on talent. That's why the former WWE wrestlers will always be pushed harder.

And that's why they weren't this year.

Probably why ratings hit record lows for Thursday a few months back then.

When it comes to the money making events (Bound For Glory, the UK tour, house shows), the most pushed acts are the likes of Hardy, Sting and Hogan. Look at ShopTNA.com. Its all well and good putting Roode in the main event of shows they know are going to do 8,000 buys. You could have ODB vs Flip Kendrick in the main event of those shows and they aren't going to make a difference. The likes of Roode and AJ are up and down the card like yo-yos. They aren't established as big names after almost a decade. If TNA could survive or guys like them, they wouldnt be paying Hardy high six figures per year,

Re: Aces & Eights Discussion Thread

So...do you want them to push guys like Roode and Daniels or not? They don't sell merch now meaning they won't in the future?

Well, yeah I would. The thing with the likes of Daniels and Roode and especially storm is they turned heel and face so many times, they've been midcard and opening match and then main eventing so many times, they've ruined any chance to establish them. They should have done this in 2006. They aren't young men any more.

Nobody in TNA will become some type of star with the way the booking and format of the show is..
