Re: Worst TNA Decisions of 2012?
1) The Claire Lynch Storyline = Do I even have to explain that one?
2) Hardy Winning the BFG Series = I was willing to give it a chance, but so far, I am very underwhelmed with what they've done with it. It feels like he is only in this spot because he sells the most merchandise, but they had no character drive or storyline direction to compliment that, so it just feels half assed.
3) Letting Devon leave the Company without dropping the TV Title = Seriously, how does that happen? That is just stupid. Losing talents happens. It is the nature of the business, but how do you let them walk out the door without having them drop the belt they are currently holding? Hell, why is he holding a belt if a new deal hasn't been reached at least a month before expiration?
4) TNA Gut Check = What is the point of bringing all these guys on TV and give them a contract in some cases but then not use them on TV? It seems pointless, especially when other guys are debuting with the company left & right like during the build up for Destination X and Chavo Guerrero. The only good thing to come out of Gut Check has been Joey Ryan. and that is only because he didn't win and it has given his character a direction. Alex Silva and Taeler Hendrix...where are they? There was at least one other winner too, but I don't remember his name and wouldn't know him if you showed him to me.
5) Underutilizing the separate divisions = The X Division had a great new stipulation placed on it with the X Champion getting the opportunity to face the World Champion at Destination X every year. It is just too bad there is nobody in the X Division at the moment. It feels like all they have is Ion and anybody they can find to have wrestle him once in a while. Why haven't Kenny King & Sonjay Dutt been signed? Or have they and do I just think they haven't because they are never used? What about guys like Jigsaw and Scorpion Sky who made a good impression at the DX PPV and were never seen again? Why did they let Alex Shelley go when he is capable of carrying the division and being a figure head of it?
And what about the Tag Team Division? Sure they've managed to scrounge up some singles star pairings that actually clicked at least a little bit like Daniels/Kaz, Joe/Magnus, & AJ/Angle, but where are the real fucking tag teams? It feels like the division is almost empty and Daniels & Kaz are only the champions out of necessity to fill the spot rather than having any kind of division built around them.
And then there is the Knockouts which has basically just been reduced to the champion, her opponent, and occasionally a tag partner for each. There doesn't fee like there is a whole lot of depth in that division either. They let The Beautiful People & Winter go, Mickie James is hardly ever used anymore, and right now there just isn't that much going on with the girls.
6) Garrett Bischoff = Who in their right mind thought anybody would give two shits about Garrett Bischoff?
