TNA's obsession with Stables.

I have been watching TNA on and off since it opened in 2002 and have noticed over the last ten years the amount of stables their have been. It's almost like everytime I watch a new stable is attempting to take over the company. I'm just gonna list a few;

Sports entertainment extreme
3 live kru (later 4 live kru)
The Latin American Exchange
Planet Jarrett
Kings of Wrestling
Triple X
Christian's Coalition
The Angle Alliance
The British Invasion
World Elite
Main Event Mafia
TNA Frontline
The Band
E.V 2.0
Fortune
Immortal
Aces & 8s

That is 17 in 10 years that I can name off the top of my head. Thats an average of nearly 2 a year so I guess my question is; What is TNA's obsession with Stables? Is it just lazy booking? Are TNA trying to recreate the past? (ie The NWO) Or is it something totally different.

IMO and as I have mentioned in previous post sure The NWO was cool back in the day but come on it's not 1996 anymore and it's certainly not going to gain ratings. People are bored of seeing the same storyline over and over and over again.

Yeah, they've always had a thing for stables. Some of them have been booked well but there's been a bunch of misses too.

The impact zone is a very valuable commodity. Everyone wants to take it over and have those 300 fans and uhh cheap fireworks and MILLIONS OF DOLLARS that doesn't exist.

Re: TNA's obsession with Stables.

That's just their booking philosophy I suppose. Russo, Jarrett, Hogan, and Bischoff seem to have a booking mentality similar to 90s wrestling (mostly biggest that was the biggest period they were all in). When it comes time to think up of a big angle to improve ratings, they go with stables because that is what they know.

apparently the impact zone is the most valuable thing on earth, and people try to take over it as often as possible
