I guess I could realistically call myself a near lifelong WWE/F follower and I've always been interested in the other wrestling going on out there too. Probably more interested, tbh (I'm lesser-known-over-here foreign stuff, indy-cool hipster like that
), but for some time now I've gone a little cold on WWE's product. Not hating, not skipping completely (there's no rule saying there can be only one, and only that one you can watch), I'm just not all that curious about anything they're doing.
If anyone had asked me, Hey, are you a TNA fangirl?
last week, I'd have been all, Nah, just liking them lately
. But then I took a glance at my rep, and couldn't help noticing it was overloaded with TNA threads. I miss Raw, NXT, and whatever else WWE's pumping out these days without hesitation while at the same time get excited about Impact. Looks like I've officially joined the fan party.
Really though, TNA gives me what I want from a wrestling show. It's not perfect, it isn't the greatest wrestling company in the world, but most of the time it's fun to watch. It doesn't have the huge sets and usually lacks the impressively packed seats of a WWE show, but those things don't matter to me. If folks can get past the packaging and the hype, there's tons of wrestling greatness in smaller places, or mid-sized in TNA's case. A lot of their talent is hitting a career high, and while I do agree with those saying this isn't the best TNA roster, many of the people they do have are bringing it weekly.
