Re: What's the BEST things & the WORST things about TNA?

Thank you for all the BEST/WORST lists so far.

I have to agree with most of you about the Impact Zone revamp. They should be able to make it look individual for the Impact tapings and look incredible for the PPVs.

I just want to say that I don't hate Jeff Hardy. I respect his career and the damage he took and continues to take for the sake of entertainment. I just hate how much success he's getting NOW for the current amount of work he's putting in. His current act seems over-worked, uninspirational and somewhat false. Everytime he raises his voice to say "Creatures!" I cringe. It sounds so fake, so worked. He works too hard at trying to come over babyface. I just wish he'd be honest and drop all this 'for the fans' BS and hit a Swanton properly again.

I cant agree more about jeff.I dont hate him either. I get that some people most like his colorful freak character. That does not mean he deserves all of thos glory Impact Wrestling's giving him. Though he is creative from a visual perspective. His promos are beyond boring and lack luster. His wrestling is not technical at all. I just dont get it.

ontop of that he has zero respect for the world title.Never brings it out except for that stupid belt he has.I think its so important to respect the world title if you have it. The other guys kill to be the world champ and you see it in ther eyes and how they hold up that belt with pride.

I respect wrestlers that strive at wrestling in the ring and showing passion for what they are doing. Jeff Hardy shows passion for being a creative person.Not passion for the business.That is a huge difference.

Yes, the Aries v Hardy Ladder match at Turning Point was superb. A possible Match of the Year for me. A match Aries should have won, but still a fantastic match. Funny how the most entertaining wrestler in that match was Aries, though. Yes, Hardy took incredibly high risks, as is his trademark, but Mick Foley once said (I'm paraphrasing): "The fans care more about who is doing the moves than the moves themselves." Jeff Hardy can fling his body about all he likes but if his acting and his gimmick don't change up a gear, I'll continue to believe he belongs on the negative side of the list.

Thank you, I appreciate you doing so - I don't actually want a Hardy rant here, I just wrote what I felt. I wanted people to put up their opinions and lists so I could compare, discuss and maybe expand my own views and opinions.

The worst on the other hand is a bad hand for certain decisions. What I'm talking about here is the, in my opinion, missed opportunity on Roode-Storm, the lacklustre development of the A&8's, etc.

The positive does outweigh the negative by a lot at this moment, in my opinion.
It is true that TNA is a company with a positive state of mind. I love that about TNA. They are also respectful of the wrestlers, the fans, the past.
And yet they are let down by niggly negatives. They try to please everyone and I love them for trying. They do get a lot right but what they get wrong (including; gaps in storylines, promoting the wrong wrestlers and missed opportunites, like you say.) could ruin all their hard work.

Re: What's the BEST things & the WORST things about TNA?

Hardy can still go in the ring perfectly, but his character, mic skill, charisma and so forth ran thin along time ago.

Re: What's the BEST things & the WORST things about TNA?

Best thing right now I would say is Kaz and Daniels, I basically watch the show because of those two.

Worst thing is Tazz commentary.

The worse thing by far is the over-reliance on 90's staples and 'names'.

BEST:
Abundance of talented performers
WORST:
Not enough time/resources to showcase them all.

Good roster with many talented performers...

... that is ruined by uninspired writing.
