Casual fans are not buying it.
And I can see why, I've gone from watching the whole shows to skipping through most of it the day after.
And obviously nobody gives a crap about wrestling anymore either.
I'm with you man. I love TNA more than the next bloke, and it's the only wrestling show I watch. The show has gone so far down hill from three months ago, it isn't funny. TNA just keep finding new ways to kill their talent.
Point 1 - Turning Aries face was the worst decision they could have made, and it's something they have done in the past. He got so over during his X-Division title run because he was just being himself. He was cocky, would dance to his own highlight videos and pop a bottle of champagne to celebrate in the ring. He quickly went from being a heel, to a tweener. Great! Leave him doing what he was doing and he'll continue to gain popularity.
Enter TNA's booking team. "Oh, this guys getting popular. Time to turn him full blown face". What do we get after that? Generic promo's about how hard he worked and how long it's taken to reach the top. Blah, blah, blah! This reminds me exactly of the Anderson episode we had after Lockdown in 2010. He was the top heel, had just come off a five star match with Kurt Angle and was looking a million dollars. What did TNA do? Turn him face, had him win the world championship as a face and his career has spiraled out of control ever since.
They almost did it to Bully Ray as well, turning him face for a night. I was almost prepared to give up after that show, concerned that TNA didn't have any idea on how to manage their talent on screen. They thankfully left Ray as he was on the next show (Could you imagine a 'face' Bully in the courtyard *facepalms*). Now Aries is finally going to return to being a heel, when he should have remained a tweener 3 months ago. So no progression, and now he is having a World Title match at BFG centered around a jealousy angle. What the fuck has he got to be jealous about? He is a world champion. Since when does Aries give a fuck about how many fans he has?
And then throw in Aces and Eights torturing an on air talent on screen. The angle has just gotten completely ridiculous and Hogan is partly to blame, taking on an acting role with his cheesiness that just fails to get the danger of Aces and Eights over.
Horrible build this has been for TNA's biggest PPV of the year, and failure to realise this by most on here, is just being negligent.
Really hope they put on a great PPV in Phoenix next week but I'm waiting with baited breath.
