He'll be healed now. Its only TNA who doesn't pay for your surgery when you are under contract. He probably couldnt afford to heal up with TNA's history of the way they treat their wrestlers. Aren't they being sued by Scott Steiner and Daffney for unsafe working environments? And didnt Konnan and Ron Killings win lawsuits against them for not paying for surgeries due to injuries that happened in a TNA ring? One of these days TNA are going to get badly fucked in court. The company just doesnt care about its wrestlers.

This is a company where Nigel McGuinness had to work at a deli counter because TNA doesnt take care of its wrestlers when they arent on TV. There's more money working in a supermarket.

I wouldn't be so sure he is healed completely. If you know about back injuries, they can be persistent and nagging injuries that rarely heal 100%. I believe WWE only began taking care of it's workers recently, in an attempt to help Linda during her political attempts. Also, they were under a lot of pressure from outside groups. I don't believe its strictly for the benefit of its workers.
It's already documented that Dixie is a caring woman, and I could see her changing the face of wrestling, and the lives of all workers, if she is ever in the position.

WWE has always paid for its wrestlers surgeries. Only recently have they sent their wrestlers to rehab and tested for steroids but going as far back as Jake Roberts neck surgery in 1989, WWE has always paid for their workers to get healthy. Its obvious they want their wrestlers healthy for the benefit of their business. Why would you hire someone and let them stay on the shelf injuried. WWE are a public company. They dont want any lawsuits.

Where is this documented? Its documented in court she has a history of refusing to pay wrestlers to get surgery for injuries they suffered in her ring. TNA also allowed a methed out Jeff Hardy get in the ring with Sting where all manner of dangerous stuff could have happened. Dixie didnt really help Claire Lynch out you know. There's no way TNA will change wrestling with their history of not giving a shit about its wrestlers.

As much as I like James Storm you're kidding yourself. Even if TNA gave Storm the belt for a lengthy 8-month reign, none of it would change where TNA is today.

Fact is Bound For Glory did the worst number it did for years. And why would anyone buy it? TNA has educated its viewers that they wont get the right ending on their biggest shows. Bobby Roode didnt beat Kurt Angle at BFG 2011 and James Storm didnt beat Bobby Roode at Lockdown. TNA have this habit of building up their talent and putting them in positions where a loss would be damaging to them ... and then they lose. They replaced Storm with Aries and ran with Aries and as soon as they had the bright idea of putting the belt on Hardy they turn Aries heel. It makes no sense. They are so irrational.
Lol, you're acting as if the people who actually spend money on wrestling shows give a fuck about whether Roode goes over Angle at Bound For Glory or Storm goes over Roode at Lockdown. People might care about that here, but the casual fans who spend on wrestling couldn't care less.

As it concerns this thread, none of what was listed in the OP is something that's holding the company back or really a big mistake. I mean don't you guys get bored of pretending that this stuff is? Yeah gee wilikers Austin Aries didn't get a one-year reign and the Storm-Roode feud didn't end how it could have. Who gives a shit. Tree falls in a forest.

I've been on the forum long enough now to notice that Hogan lives inside your head rent free. He owns you.

Because you have been educated to think nothing matters in TNA because they constantly pull out of their original plans and ideas suffer from it. If you cut someones legs off he's not likely to draw money. If nothing is ever going to change in TNA, whats the point in even watching or them even continue to run?

Are you fucking stupid? Of course they care? Why do you think they even spend money on wrestling? Do you think people are paying money to watch something they dont care about? Not everyone is a bitter clown like most on the internet. The majority of PPV buyers pay to see something built up over time and to get the right conclusion to the storyline. God, what a horrible fan you must if. If you dont care why would you bother to watch?

None of it matters because the stuff mentioned in the OP is so consistent the fans dont care anymore. When they do care the end result is a disappointment and TNA is left with fans like you who thinks wrestling doesn't matter. I feel sorry for you if you seriously cant take yourself out of your smart head for to seconds to get captured in the moment of wrestling. Fans like you are the reason why TNA does so poorly.

even if they don't care you the promoter/artist have to care, cause if you don't care why should they care?

Things I think TNA could have done better.

Storm/Roode and A&8 - Now people are saying this should have ended at Lockdown with Storm winning the championship and being the top face, had that happened then Roode/Aries would have never happened (which would have been a huge shame). Here's a better idea, have Storm lose, have him take his ball and go home, have A&8 invade, do the angle where Roode thinks Storm is behind it all, have A&8 beat up Storm like they did so that no one suspects Storm and then at a later date (like BFG) do a Storm heel turn with him being the leader of A&8's, maybe even do a Storm/Roode double turn.

You can dismiss this all you want but it would have been a much more interesting angle than the current A&8 angle and the swerve would have made sense because the character would have had a motivation, with A&8 taking guys out Storm could advance to the top of the BFG series and get the title shot at BFG like he wanted, it would have made the Storm/Roode BFG match mean more as well because then it will be like "So Roode was actually doing the right thing screwing Storm". Might as well go with it because just look where Storm stands now, he's just a babyface who keeps dropping the ball in the eyes of the fans.

I agree with the statements that TNA should have done more with the X-Division the problem is that Destination X happened, Aries won the world heavyweight belt and then the X Division found itself falling down the pecking order behind BFG Series and A&8 and as a result it just ended up fizzling out, problem is that the X Division rooster didn't have anyone who could live up to what Austin Aries had done as x-division champion, guys like Sonjay Dutt and Kenny King and Xema Ion are good wrestlers but they don't connect with people like Austin Aries does. The X Division is made by the people in it and while the talent there does deserve TV time they aren't going to help TNA win any fans, the diehards aren't going to watch the X Division, most of them turned their backs on TNA a long time ago in favour of indie wrestling.
If TNA were to try and relaunch the X-Division for real they need to find one exceptional flying wrestler and build the division around him, a guy like Pac would have been ideal had WWE not signed him.

I could talk about Clair Lynch but to be honest while it was horrible I don't want to change it because it was so bad that it was fun to watch, Chris Daniels was great in that angle and it did a lot of good things for Kazarian too.

Making Aries champ was a mistake. Like it or not, it was.

He's 29 years old and works for New Japan regularly. You honestly think there aren't wrestlers in WWE who dont have knee problems or collar bone problems. Gargano is only 25 as well. He's WWE bound in the next 18 months.

Nice try though. And if Alex Shelley was a physical mess incapable of working for WWE then shame on TNA for trying to give him shit money to continue to work with them.
Incorrect once again, this was the second time Gargano wasn't signed. You know what the IWC said last time? "He's WWE bound in the next 12 months."
