Former WWE writer rips TNAs big announcement

In the latest episode of WrestlingINC Weekly, myself (@RajGiri_303) and former WWE Creative writer Court Bauer (@courtbauer) discussed TNA announcing that they would take Impact tapings on the road. While Bauer felt that it was a good move for TNA, he ripped the company for announcing it publicly.

"To announce it on a TV show... I think it just speaks to how in the bubble they are, and how they are desperate to look like they're something. They way they're doing it makes them look so super bush league. To shine the spotlight on the fact that they don't do s--t [and] that they've been in the same place for a million years. To the average fan, they're going to shrug like, 'Who gives a damn? Great, you're going to be in Alabama next week, who cares?' To them [the average fan], a big announcement is that you signed Steve Austin, you signed the Rock, or you're bringing in this, or you're bringing in WarGames... it's preposterous, it makes them look like the fools they are."

Lucha Underground on Unimas is behind Impact. As noted before, New Japan numbers head-to-head with Impact are unknown. The station that does have ways to measure viewership internally and were surprised at how well the shows have done.

I can understand where he's coming from but they obviously want to bump the ratings for those shows.

"Ripped it for announcing it publicly."

So they mean be morons, keep it under the public eye?

So many things wrong with that whole discussion.

Well, he does have a good point. Announcing that they are going to take Impact tapings on the road isn't groundbreaking or something that should be made into a big deal but it's a step in the right direction for them nonetheless.

They're trying to make it look like they're at WWE standards. It's a groundbreaking thing to expanding the product.
