I agree that TNA does have more intelligent fans than the WWE and all and that Steen would probably be huge in NYC, Chicago, UK, ect. but the problem is they don't run those markets enough in the first place. In terms of a long term investment, I personally see Adam Cole as TNA's guy. He's 5 years younger than Steen, great look, great ability, good promo skills and very flexible in all divisions for TNA. I'd also pick the Briscoes from the ROH group for the same reasons, albeit they aren't the youngest guys anymore, they could really use a change of scenery and they've been ready to be TV wrestlers for years upon years now. There is no way that a Briscoe Brothers/Bad Influence/Morgan and Ryan division could go wrong. Add in Rhett Titus or Alex Shelley and re-create the All Night Express or Motor City Machine Guns and you have the best tag team division in the world.
The only way of steen getting a TNA contract is if WWE is stupid enough to reject him (austin aries style).
Which I doubt, Punk will give him a spot.
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.
He isn't going to be out there for fans to cheer him, all you are looking for is for is that heel heat, and while masked and helping the heels go over will do that if the crowd is hot. Sure once unmasked on PPV there is a good percentage who won't know who he is but they will know he is not a good guy. He embraces the Aces show goes off the air. The announcers can easily put over who he is and make him out to be a big deal for the paying customers at home. At the tail end he wouldn't be out there for longer than 4-5 minutes if that before the show goes off the air.

He then picks Hardy up and goes to deliver the F Cinque and as he does Hardy can simultaneously pull the mask off, then Steen pulls Aries on top for the 1-2-3...or something of the like. Have the show go off the air with Aries and Steen standing tall with them both being revealed in the final moments and Steen helping Aries win the strap and screw Hardy.
Hmmm, you know what? You might be on to something there...
But if what Embassy said is true then it doesn't matter anyway.

lol i love the arguments that Steen isnt a big enough name to help the company.....but those same people are the ones that shit on ex-WWE being in TNA.
I think Steen like Aries, would grow on the audience that doesnt know him. TNA right now is doing well with promoting and pushing new talent, or even semi old talent. Gone are the days of back to back jarrett and sting title runs. Right now i think their roster is kinda stacked with all the aces and eights coming in plus the packed title scene. But kevin could really do well there if given the chance.
But me personally i think he still has things to do in ROH, the company is pretty much centered around him, and will be even if he loses the belt. since he is their top heel
from what i've read he resigned for another 2 years, aw well, NEXT!

I think maybe Steen could help the house show attendance with maybe a thousand per market?
But I'm dead sure he won't do anything to help Impacts ratings. At this point he will be good for house shows but he wont help the tv-show.
my friend Spike TV is a dead end anyway
the indy scene FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS has proven you dont need tv to be "validated"

I much prefer PWG over TNA in general, Steen plays a part of that.
what if TNA BOUGHT OUT PWG AND CLOSED IT?! what then?
