What does MMA style mean?

The match at Extreme rules is just an all out brawl, which have happened, often. I wouldnt call it MMA style

MMA in wrestling is basically the brawl for all. which did not go well

I find it laughable that we could casually talk about how we can "fix" a company like TNA. If some of the best minds in the business can't improve it then there's nothing we can do. And if anyone actually had the chance they'd get little done due to the politics from the wrestlers, management, bookers, etc.

If they were the best minds in the business then their ratings would be, well good. Ratings are showing that they are not putting on a product that people want to watch. Considering that they are on television, that's a huge problem.

They could have the best fucking writers, wrestlers, angles, whatever have you and it wouldnt' amount to shit. It all boils down to brand awareness and the channel they're being featured on. They have a fucking stacked roster with some of the best talent the wrestling world has ever seen but it's meaningless because despite all the talent they've acquired over the years the ratings are at a standstill.

According to the "people" we need more awkward ray/brooke segments and the highly anticipated claire lynch return.

One,get a top face. I can't stress that enough. The only company to survive for the last 35 years in the United States in the WWE. Why? Because they always have a top guy. A wrestling company is basically a television show. What does every television show have? A central character, a character the show is built around. Right now, John Cena is the central character and the show is built around him. Before it was Stone Cold, before that it was Hulk Hogan. All three of those men were the faces and vocal points of their respective era's in the company.

Now, what does TNA do? The essentially have a new TNA Champion every few months. They push different people every few months into the main event scene. They have no central character, there's nobody holding the show together. It's just a bunch of guys wrestling. I understand he's not reliable, but if there's a guy you could push as a top face, it's Jeff Hardy. He's charismatic, a good wrestler, and is over. He was incredibly over in WWE, and they gave him the WWE Championship because he was so over.

Second, if they want to compete with WWE, go PG. Go kid friendly, start to have more kid-friendly segments and wrestlers. The ONLY way you can compete with your competition if if you are like you competition. WWE didn't stay kid-friendly during the late 90's, they didn't continue with the "good guys vs. bad guys" mentality. They went edgy and controversial, to compete with the more edgy WCW. And it was successful for WWE and proved to be the best move their could have done at the time. WWE didn't stay PG and gloat about how they have a better roster, or how they feel they have a better product. They went all out and competed with WCW with the WCW's own formula of stables and "bad-asses".

WWE's fan base consist of mostly kids. Try and take the kids away from WWE, make them have a different company to watch. Maybe they'll get pulled into TNA, who knows? WWE right now is essentially The Muppets Show, while TNA is Sons of Anarchy. I'm sorry, but kids aren't going to interested in a biker gang with masks. In order for TNA to successfully compete, they have to be more like Sesame Street.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

No way, TNA should not go PG. That'd be suicide for them.

@itssoeasy23

But then they're lose many of the people who are watching with no strong likelihood that families would bother with anything but the popular, recognized name brand they already know and pick up toys for the kiddies from.

My thoughts are almost the opposite; try to draw in the teen and adult audience who may also enjoy Bellator and build a two-show block for Spike. And I know a lot of folks are against this, but I'd like it if they'd seriously consider a return to the six-sided ring, even if just for x-division specials. So often it's dismissed as a gimmick but I like variety in wrestling.
