FIRED/LET GO-RVD
Hulk Hogan
Brooke Hogan
Ken Anderson
bunch of other fat trimming to bring the payroll down and make room for the young up and comers.
BRING BACK/HIRE-
No specific names, but there are some KO's I would like to see back with that division, X and Tag divisions all getting revamped a bit and more prominence.
No more geezer hires. I don't mind bringing in some ex WWE talent if it comes at a reasonable price, they are still young and have potential and there is some purpose/a spot to bring them in.

Bring back the 6 sided ring. That was what first got me interested and made me check it out. SOmething different.

Move out of the Impact Zone A.S.A.P. That place is bringing the company down. Like was mentioned earlier, hit up Vegas, ECW arena, etc. Not just a few times a year either, more like a few times a month they need to be somewhere else.


Refresh the Aces and 8"s with having Doc/Knox beat down D-Von(So Dudleyz can reform for a bit to take on A&8's, only short term)
Have Knox/Doc Start destroying everyone and everything.
Bring Eric Young and ODB into the group(EY beatdown as an initiation process and to get him to start acting serious) They fit the appearance/attitude of what I think fits into the group.
Make the group End up looking like
Prez-Jarrett
VP-James Storm
Tag Team-Knox/DOC
X-EY
KO-ODB
Enforcer-Gunner


Next off have Roode or Aries take the title back from Hardy and let Roode & Aries continue their heel feud against each other for the title for a couple months, I think its great stuff.

Titles:
Heavyweight- Off Hardy to either Roode or Aries
TV- Off Devon and onto Magnus
X Division- Off RVD and onto Zema or Kenny for a bit
Tag- I wouldn't be able to get them off of Chavo/Hernandez fast enough and onto Kaz/Daniels. If you can't utilize all the X Division/Young guys start forming some tag teams for now out of them. Tag division needs some retooling.
KO Tag Titles- Scrap it
KO Title- Tara drops it to Velvet Sky and then a heel turn by M. James leads to a feud between them.
I would try and bring back a few familiar faces, all getting some direction Hamada, Angelina Love, few others most of us want back.

Sting can lead the team of
Sting
Dudleyz
Samoa Joe
+ couple others against A&8's and after that has run its course, he can either take over as head of TNA again or semi retire and have that once a year type of thing like Undertaker, no more coming in and destroying 8 guys with a bat shit.

Get rid of gut check, if I want the guy I will hire him and bring him in with a story, not the hard working, never got a break story of the independent wrestler, its done with all the other previous winners, Austin Aries, CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, etc.

Get rid of all/most current booking and bring in some fresh new faces with imagination, such as recently retired wrestlers with great minds for the biz. They WILL NOT get tv time or matches or angles for themselves though. I am sure you guys can think of a few that would/could work well.

I am sure I can think of more.

I love the idea of a MMA division with japanese style/shoot style / MMA inspired wrestling. They have tried it before with Bobby Lashley and failed miserably but why not try it again? Scrap the X-division and replace it with the TNA MMA-division I'm with you buddy. Learn from the best submission stuff in NJPW and you're on to something.

The problem with the X-Division right now is that it should be one spotfest after another. Conventional wrestlers like RVD and Brian Kendrick do not belong in the X-Division that loved in 2004. Neither does Samoa Joe. Austin Aries back in spring 2012 is the type of wrestler that belong in the X-Division.

With wrestlers like Kendrick and RVD the X-division is just a like a minor league embarrassment. They might as well scrap it at this point because it isn't bringing in any tv-ratings.

WWE tried it @ Extreme rules and it was the match of the year for WWE as far as I'm concerned.

Bobby Lashley sucked anyway so you know.

Listen what do TNA have to lose? The X-Division is nothing at the moment. Just nothing.

Bellator is on right after TNA. Why would you watch fake MMA when real MMA is on after it?

DUUUDDDDEEE

Bellator has 200 k viewers or MTV2. Nobody knows if people will give a crap about them when they go to Spike.

Impact is a million + show. Let's be realistic before we bring Bellator into the equation. Also consider the time slots.

Well if the Spike audience are obviously not interested in MMA, why target the MMA audience? See my point? If TNA fans are gagging to watch MMA fights, they aren't going to watch two of their favourite characters rolling around in their little gloves and baggy shorts.

The Spike audience is not interested in MMA? Ultimate fighter had way better ratings on Spike than on the big almighty FX network. The X-Division is in shambles anyway so why not try something new?

Are you reading what I am saying? I'm giving you two sides of the coin and you are still confused.

1. If people want to watch MMA they will watch Bellator, who may not be UFC but have a following. They gained 900,000 viewers over that two hour block which was very encouraging for a debut show.

Nobody watches MTV2 and the channel has zero advertising. Put UFC on there and it would get the same (actually UFC does horrible numbers on Fuel). Put TNA on MTV2 and you'd get less.

2. On the other side of it, if people aren't interested in MMA, they are going to want their wrestling show interrupted by wrestlers pretending to be really fighting.

Understand now?
