Oh, and I agree with Clique. TNA has been playing catchup to the WWE for too long. What they need to do is go after the markets and do the stuff WWE wont
in fairness, WCW was the same way for about the same period of time...until Turner got involved. TNA is lacking a big financial backer. Without that, they're just another small-time promotion that WWE doesnt see as a threat.
IIRC the deal was that Turner couldn't get back into wrestling for a certain amount of time, like he had to wait 5 years or so until he could have ownership in wrestling again.
I do not think it would be a smart idea for Uncle Ted to do that, but as a fan I would love to see TNA with an open Ted Turner check book. I think it would potentially make TNA, WWE, and even the Indy feds better because competition in wrestling is always a good thing.
I'd like for TNA to split the roster and get Xplosion on the air on another network on a Tuesday or something. A Turner-funded show could do numbers.
They could do a highlight package for Impact so they are not left out.
