Re: Bruce Prichard Wants The Knockout Division GONE?
If the KO matches are boring, a lot of that has to do with the way they're being treated by the company.
When was the last time you saw a backstage segment with the KOs? When was the last time there was a proper feud, complete with promos etc? For months the KO matches have just been stand-alone matches with zero context or storyline (at least until Tara's heel turn last week). Put AJ or Aries in those kind of matches and it gets pretty dull pretty quickly, so what chance do the likes of Tessmacher have to create an emotionally involving spectacle?
The KOs can be an asset to the company. It's just whether or not they want them to be. To be honest, TNA needs to decide what they want to do. If they're not into the KOs they may as well sack the entire female roster as they're not doing anyone any favours by running a context-free 4 minute match every week. Either give them the time they need or get rid of them. Personally, I think they need a second show - the KOs could play an interesting part in that.
