Other things I'd do....

Tournoment Pay Per Views with Champions from all over Wrestling. Imagine if they had Ric Flair Cup and had Christian from the WWE compete along with Adam Pearce, Davey Richards, Hiroshi Tanahasi, Go Shiozaki, Takeshi Morishima, El Texano, and Carlito along with James Storm, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Doug Williams, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, Daniels, and Angle.

Pick a Name either TNA or IMPACT

Basic Stuff... Time limits on matches, Ref checking opponents.

Problem I have is with the X-Division title. The Division isn't really defined. The TV Title has been played out they should have went with an internet championship.

Create simple logical storylines like Kurt Angle wants to be the World CHamp, Heavyweight Champ, and Crusierweight Champ all at the same time. Or Zema Ion starts packing on muscle and jumping weight classes.

Glad other people see Reaction is a good flag ship name for a show.For when the name changes to Impact Wrestling. Reaction is just a perfect name for a flagship story telling ect main wrestling show. Cross the line would be perfect for a second edgy different intense show.


I agree that the x division does not defined.It used to be of course.It seems these days they want to use it in many ways.I believe the x division should be a open platform belt.I like the idea that its for crazy wrestlers and the ultimate x.But i like the idea as well that the belt should be used as a stepping stone.Seems they are going that way. I mean Christian york could be in the main event one day.I think thats why they are pushing him deep into the x division so soon.He will probably beat RVD. Didnt aries state that anyone now that wins or has the belt can face the world champion at destination x. Good idea.

ps if people didnt know all read. The Impact zone has zero wrestling events from January 18 until after Lockdowns March 10th ppv. Thats over a month and a half. That means they better dam well renovate the impact zone.Please not be a wood set again ha. More then enough time and i bet they are planning on doing so.

They have had the same stage for over 3 years at least. Its getting tired. Fresh feel with for once hopefully a good stage set for once. The one now is just so messy with no real sense of anything.

I actually like the KO Tag Titles. But they're represented wrong... First actually put them on 2 women who can wrestle like Gail Kim & Melina. Have them brag about how great they are and how hot they are and how great there husbands/boyfriends are and have them defend them all over the World. Give them a 2 year run as tag team champions.

What it will do is make everything seem a bit more real and get some people actually interested in Tag Team Wrestling. TNA can actually claim to have the best Womens tag team in the World

The Firing of Hogan Dixie and Bischoff HAS to be the start to the repair process IMO
Secondly you need a fan base to get tickets to actually see you live. not just Universal Studio tourists there for the day who wanna see a show. so more travel for TNA is a must! It HAS to be packed with fans not tourists to take a foot hold or you will never have a large enough loyal base to compete.
there also needs to be less pointless promos and more of the old WWF/Impact action.
Impacts best route is to swoop up all the disenfranchised older WWE viewers who are sickened by PG wrestling, you do this by making the product more violent, more high spots, edgier content, and overall just bring back that "ruthless aggression" tons of ppl on these threads are begging for!
That would be how i would start to put a dent in the myriad of problems that is TNA

Warning: Enormous wall of text incoming.

1. I don't care what they call the company or what name they slap on the televised show. I'm perfectly fine with what they already have, but since the name recognition value really isn't much (let's be honest) if they want to change and start fresh that's fine too.

2. TNA has, in the past, loaded up on known talents who were looking for an easier schedule or an ego trip back from retirement. Out of what remains of that lot, at least half of them should probably go at this point. If they can't keep up in the ring and/or contribute entertaining segments, then it's time for goodbyes.

3. Taz. I don't think there's much I need to say here.

4. When a fun crowd wanders into the IZ, the show comes alive. I don't know, sometimes it seems like a frat party dropped by for the hell of it and proceed to make the night awesome by being crazy enthusiastic (and likely more than a bit drunk/high). Other times, it's something even more deadly than the WWE daycare nights that seem to pop up more and more often. Would filming on the road solve this? Probably not. Why? Well, for one thing, the venues. People here complain that the IZ looks second-rate on television. How do you think bingo hall from middle-of-nowhere or 1,500 seat small city stadium is going to look? There's not the budget, desire to invest or willing market – that I'm aware of – for them to bounce from one big centre with a spiffy (but not too big) venue for them to the next every week.

I don't find the IZ looks bush league, and I wouldn't care about them performing in random place from week to week either, but I watch indy stuff and I don't think that's representative of the wider audience they're looking for. And don't forget that the much larger WWE has a crowd problem much of the time too, and they're doing all the things folks keep suggesting.

5. The writing. The booking. *sigh*

Look, some things they're doing really well. I wouldn't be watching if I thought the company was operating as a complete disaster. I enjoyed a lot of what they did in 2012. I also detested a fair share of it too. The one big issue, as I see it, is a weird inability to know when to keep going as is versus when to speed things along. It doesn't always happen; Bobby Roode's reign as champion was handled wonderfully. But then we have the rushed rise and demise of Aries' championship run – when he was very popular and over with the belt – and the woeful, slow death of Aces&8s.

Aries is doing great as a heel again. He's terrific at it, but that's not the point. Face/heel turns still happen too often and without enough logic in TNA, plus the guy should not have had to step aside for Hardy so quickly.

(Want to pause and mention that Hardy has exceeded my expectations of late and I've no problem with him in the role he's got now. And I adore the inner monologues. Please let those continue. They're gold.)

Now, back to the bad stuff. The worst of the bad. The bad, sad, horrible Aces&8s mess. Guys, TNA folk, if you're lurking in these parts again, this is NOT how you book an invading stable unless you want them to look like a joke, and I don't think that was the plan. Nobody signs talent to bring them in as comedy unless they really are comedy acts, and that's not the case here. There's no point in having anyone cut what's intended as a dramatic promo in ring if he's going to be lumped into a gang of goofs who lose matches all the time and hang out partying in a broom closet. How did this happen? Aces&8s started out pretty cool. A masked group of wrestlers who felt overlooked/unappreciated and decided to do something about it by making themselves impossible to ignore. Now there's no direction, very little progress and not much in the way of character development going on.

6. Media presentation. Let's start with the web site. As a designer, that thing makes me cry. A total overhaul is much needed. Then there's the television production. Unlike a lot of people here, I'm not bothered by it. Yes, I know there are far too many gaffs for a professional crew but I'm not that picky. Still, I'd like to point out that I've done camera work for live events (and edited footage for others) and even companies that rely on volunteers can sometimes be less sloppy. Just putting that out there.

7. Who do I think they should hire? I've no suggestions, since I haven't a clue what they have planned for 2013 and who would slot into the roles that need filling. There's a rather large roster right now, so even though there are people I'd love to see brought in, I do not want them there with nothing to do. One suggestion I would make is...they should hire me! I've no idea what I'd do but hey, I'm sure I'd be about as useful as some of the folks hanging out in the IZ.

All that incredible amount of wordage behind me, I do want to toss a bit of praise out. The wrestling talent on TNA have all done a fantastic job in the past twelve months. I can't say enough good things about Chris Daniels, Kaz, Bully, Aries and Roode. Hogan has been terrific in his non-wrestling role, AJ is a champ in the ring, ODB makes me laugh, Zema Ion has improved immensely, the Robbies are funny, Tessmacher is finally starting to look like she has potential...and I know I’ve forgotten other folks who’ve been awesome.
