@OP: Agreed on the more adult themed shows. It's alright as long it isn't PG, but it's still much tamer than WWE during 1999 - 2006.

Btw: I would love to see Randy f'n Orton in TNA. Dude sucks now but had been awesome as a heel back in the TV14 days. I'm pretty sure he has more than 3 strikes on the wellness policy though. They just did not make it official. He will never leave WWE.

Re: TNA is nearly awesome

I think to help the transition from tna to impact wrestling they should change the ropes black on ppv's and remove everything red.

Impact Wrestling is a lame name. I don't know why you all love it so much.

Agreed on the black ropes.

As long indy wrestling exist, there will always be new wrestlers worth a dime out there. You just have to look for them... one of them was on gut check not too while ago.



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Buff Bagwell V2.0? Brian Cage = overrated. TNA did hire the right guy in this case. Bradley was the only participant I would have given a contract to so far. Well, and Joey Ryan.

Re: TNA is nearly awesome

I worry that we'll have 3 more weeks with no Bradley. And I really don't think we've seen the last of Brian Cage.

3 weeks with no Mickie is worse.

Bradley might already be with Aces & Eights.

Re: TNA is nearly awesome

Mickie, Gail, and Tara are by far the 3 best female N.A. workers in the world today. I like Velvet, I mean, I really like Velvet, but Mickie is so much better.

I must say that I wouldn't want to see Orton in TNA. I agree that he won't leave WWE, especially for TNA, and I also think he's had more than three strikes. He's too WWE to be TNA, and though I used to like him (until I realized that his shtick was actually quite boring though packaged well), the title "Blandy Boreton" isn't far off now. Great physique and tan, though; he has some of the best thighs in the business. Like his sleeve tats, too.

I also agree that TNA's much tamer than WWE or ECW was. They have the perfect balance, I think, and sometimes they hold back even when they don't need to, especially given that they're broadcast on Spike, which has pretty strong content (or they used to; I only watch TNA from there now). But maybe they have to be conscious of the channels it's broadcast on elsewhere (?). I hope they stay where they're at in their mature content level. Doesn't need to be any more vanilla, and it doesn't have to be raunchy or insultingly crude. I must admit I wouldn't want to see a sea of children and clueless parents replacing the 18-30 male/female demographic, though they do have some of that already.

But I also think that there are still some indy talent that are worth signing. A wrestler who isn't big elsewhere can become great if they're used properly, but it depends on the wrestler, too, so that's not a perfect theory. Motivation to step up their game, polish their gimmick, and get over has to happen too.

Re: TNA is nearly awesome

No, if they get more edgy it helps IMO. Not necessarily that the product needs it, but if you have stuff like Hernandez hitting a Border Toss on Gail Kim while these Mexican thugs with their rap music go around destroying people, that's definitely "cool."; wrestling's biggest issue right now is that it's "fake and gay".
