As a casual TNA Fan.....

i have wanted to get into tna for a while, i watched a few shows but it never "hooked" me in

after tonight this is the first time i feel "hooked"

the aces and 8s is a big storyline i like, the mystery and the fact devon is the not the leader and this could be something big gives them that storyline they need

the wrestling with aries/joe/styles/angle etv, focusing on great wrestling

hardy as champ, he is a draw and casuals know him, him with the title is a plus

more edgy, seeing that the other company is at rock bottom right now imo, its refreshing to see a more edgy adult program

it kind of reminded me of wcw nitro tonight, sure it still has its negatives but i will now get my wrestling fix from spike on thursdays

Re: As a casual TNA Fan.....

Kinda funny to see how an even boring, uninspired and dull episode of TNA is considered being ahead of WWE at the moment.

The OP seems to enjoy the product. How can anyone enjoy a boring, uninspired and dull episode?

And yeah the product is now more enjoyable than it was before.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Re: As a casual TNA Fan.....

You missed a year of consistent, quality programming then I'm afraid, you should have got into it after last year's BFG!

Its still much better than it was in the dark days but its too muddled now, Aces and Eights have confused everything and merged it into one big behemoth where peripheral stories get little screen time.

Re: As a casual TNA Fan.....

I do really like TNA, when they are out of the IZ. I think it does the product more harm than good. seeing the same fans week after week really annoys me.

Some smarks enjoy it more, yes. The masses don't.

The majority don't know about it. WWF is an old, old brand and hard to miss. TNA is a baby.

I wasn't speaking of WWE, which I don't even watch anymore. As always "joeisgonnakillyou" took an unneccessary shot at TNA before Prichard, when he has no other options to defend the recent product. He is butthurt and sounds like a broken record in this point.

Re: As a casual TNA Fan.....

But how can the masses watch something they've never heard of?

Re: As a casual TNA Fan.....

even though its still muddled, i felt they had that 1 big storyline they needed in aces in 8s, a draw in hardy as champ

sure its still has problems, i wish they would get out of impact zone, hogan even said this himself, and go on the road, it feels third rate

but i just felt like the first time last night that i wanted to watch till the very end, unlike previous times

im more than a "casual", i more of a smark than a casual FYI
