Default I wish TNA goes back to tapings permanently

I know that everything I'm going to get for this thread is bitching and badmouthing how stupid I am, but I really hope, that TNA returns to the old tapings schedule pre "Summer Bash". The additional buzz of being live is gone for several weeks (if not months) now and considering how much money this live broadcasts cost, I would absolutely not mind them doing this step back.

A big pro of being live is that the show is much more unpredictable. I get it. The thing is: How many times did you legit mark out for something that happened on these live broadcasts? When I think back the only moment I can remember was Sonjay Dutt returning (for a short run only, as we know now) and that's about it. Three titles changed hands as well, but never had this been a big deal (Joe winning vacant TV Title, AJ & Angle the tag straps and Botchmacher got her KO Championship back from Madison). When Storm won the World Title, I marked out even though I knew this was going to happen because I read the spoilers.

This creative team isn't about excitement in the first place. It books the shows very slowly paced and with less surprises anyway, so there's not a huge point in being live on air. The Impact Zone is all asleep again during the shows for weeks now, no sign of the great IZ crowds of the first weeks of "Summer Bash".

Another point is the roster. Due to cost issues, you only see two dozens of workers max.. It's basically the same guys each and every week and they have as few as possible workers on the show, which makes it very predictable even though the show is live. They always had the majority of the roster in Orlando, when they were taping two or three shows on two days. If you want guys like Kenny King back on the show, the only chance (if there's one) is tapings instead of live broadcasts.

On a sidenote: If there's ever another possibility of seeing IMPACT WRESTLING episodes on the road (not counting: London), it would be permanent tapings, too. They will never go to a real arena for just one live show. They might do it like they did in the past for two taped shows. Just sayin'.

You do realize the TNA roster was using the same guys over and over when they were being taped, right?

Money shouldn't be an issue here for live shows. This was a good move. It makes Impact more fun to watch weekly. The taped programs were so canned and boring that they desperately needed a change. A change that wouldn't be sufficed by the occasional Impact outside of the Impact Zone. This is the first step in the right direction to being better as non-stale product. Next step is to tour around and be live. They can easily find an area and film a month's worth there if they don't want to travel to a new place each time. Don't know why they wouldn't want to move around each week, but the option is there.

I've marked out on more live impacts than I have taped ones in the last 5 years.

Can't say I agree with this logic at all.

I don't agree with yours. Recent weeks had been stale again (with few exceptions) and there was no benefit at all from being live.

No chance in hell there are going to be live TNA weeklies on the road. You realize how broke (or at least greedy) this company is for a year now? You know the attendance figures for live events that are usually very short with like five singles matches and that's it? No f'n way people are going to pay for one TNA live Impact with like 20 workers on it minus the fan friendly stuff TNA is doing on their live events.

The real problem here sounds more like TNA's diminished roster than it does being live...

It seems to go hand in hand, I guess.

How much does it cost to go live? At .80 rating this week and with the dead crowd, it had better not be very much. Even RAW was only semi-regularly live well into 1998 IIRC. Taped road episodes are better than live IZ episodes.

This, going back to tapings is giving up. IWC praise comes and goes but TNA's vision and direction can't change.

You go back to tapings and you're going to go back to matches with Gunner and Garrett Bischoff and they'll get away with it because of the obnoxious crowd editing.
