Default Does comedy have a place in TNA / pro wrestling?

Hello everyone. Been reading the forum for a while but this is my first post. Am a big tna fan in the uk.

Wondering how you all feel about comedy angles/wrestlers in tna.

I have no problem with hogan as an ott gm or other such characters, i just can't help hating talent like ey and to a lesser extent robbie e being used for comedic value.

Both these guys are talented and with the right push could be big.

Thoughts?

Welcome to the forum my friend!

I personally believe that comedy undoubtedly has to occur in almost every wrestling show. It's all about entertainment value and if serious segment one after the other constantly start to crop up through a show then the product begins to turn slightly stale with the audience unable to simply boo/cheer throughout a show, variety is a must to spice things up.

As far as Eric Young/Robbie E go I'd hate to see them do the comedy stuff forever (and I very much doubt they will) but if it fills this void for now whilst at the same time gets them over then I have no problem with it whatsoever.

Wrestling needs variety or else it becomes boring & stale. Comedy is a big part of the variety for me and some of the best characters are comedic based and plus wrestling cant be serious all the time needs have some light heartedness

It all depends on whether it's funny - comedy in wrestling, like all comedy, is good as long as it's funny.

Robbie E's little skits are good, as are most of EY's contributions. Things like Hornswoggle jumping about etc, nah....

I know what people mean about EY, though. I like his current gimmick but he is a damn good talent, too. It would be a shame if he was stuck with this gimmick forever.

Very very good question.
I think the answer is simple though - it depends on what type of comedy, how it relates to the characters persona and how frequently it's used.

Sure there is. It just has to be funny and well placed.

Bully Ray vs AJ styles was great comedy on the last Impact, and it was good too because it was not forced funny

Sometimes I think there is way too much comedy. I dont know. I dont watch UFC or any other sport looking for comedy. I always felt the entertainment was the wrestling.
