I would absolutely LOVE
if people would stop measuring everything Impact Wrestling does against WWE. But since I know that that will never happen, we must continue to endure such talk. All it does is encourage elitist WWE fans/Impact Wrestling haters and negative people to trash the promotion. I am always suspicious of the motivations of people who make threads like this. *sigh*
But, okay, to play along just by responding to to the general title. I think that they have the potential to become more popular
than WWE. Bigger? Maybe down the line. But so what
??? If they provide a great product and promote it, if they provide a great product and promote it, and oh, if they provide a great product and promote it
, fans will be there. WHY do they NEED
to have the same number of WWE fans or whatever WWE has? They have what they have and what they have is a lot to real fans of the promotion. Why can't people learn to live without compulsively needing to compare every single thing that exists on this earth
? Boggles the mind.
If they grow and they are as successful as they can be then it's wonderful. I would instead fear if they became like WWE
, which, to me, is a step in the wrong direction
. Doing well but constantly comparing yourself negatively against something/one else is like being a beautiful woman who is never satisfied with her appearance; in a word: stupid. One thing people have complained about over the years is TNA's focus on WWE.
Well, it seems like they're trying to do their own thing now and they're progressing. Idgaf if they never have what WWE "has" because what do they have to me
that's better than what TNA has? More fans? So??? How does that affect the product I enjoy in any way?
They have a better show, more interesting/mature storylines and wrestlers, and I'm fine with their production value, and it's nice that they're getting out of the Impact Zone but I still liked them regardless if they were in it because it was about the wrestling, the company, the product. If they succeed on their own terms rather than trying to nip at the heels of WWE, I'll be far more impressed.
This kind of thread serves almost a single purpose: to service the irrational, pathetic pride of WWE-exclusive fans who will jump at the opportunity to say, "No, they never will." And if they don't, I, as a real fan of wrestling, will always follow whoever is providing the superior product, whether they're on the road, in the Impact Zone, or in a school gym.
Please try to digest this way of thinking and you will enjoy yourself far more. People kill me with using words like "legitimate" just because they're on the road now. smdh So I guess WCW weren't legitimate either when they were performing at Disney/Universal Studios. Gtfoh.
Honestly, my apologies; I HATE rants, but I just had to do it. Not trying to jump on you, OP, but still, come on. I'm not obsessed with TNA beating WWE (we have seen what a virtual monopoly can do to a product), but competition would be great. Then maybe WWE can remember why people came to the dance in the first place. So if that was your point, OP, then I understand where you're coming from.
And I like Tony's enthusiasm, actually.
