Re: What made YOU a TNA fan?

In 2002 about 3 weeks into the company starting. I was at my friends cabin and he had illegal satellite.So we flipped by the weekly ppv event and i saw TNA. I was hooked right away. I have no idea what it was but every week i was ordering the ppvs.By that point i was all ready decreasing interest in the wwe.As it got worse and worse every year.

So i needed my fix somewhere and TNA was constantly bringing in random guys and having high impact maches. It was exciting.

So ive basically seen everything this company has done from the beginning.

I caught it a few times on Bravo in Uk and liked what I saw. It was MEM vs Matt Morgan. First time I saw AJ styles I didn't get the hype (soon changed my mind) but I think they were writing him as a bit of a wee bitch who was talking about quitting because he was tired of wrestling. I first became a regular just after Genesis when they changed to 4sides but that and the Hogan link was just a coincidence. Pope and Anderson were feuding for number one contender, thought pope had something special and Anderson was a schmuck, stand by that.

Re: What made YOU a TNA fan?

Well I watched the very first episode on Spike and I think Roddy vs AJ was on the show and I've been mesmerized since then.

Re: What made YOU a TNA fan?

The first thing that got me watching was seeing old faces I recognised from WCW while channel surfing (they showed WCW on free TV here back in the day). It was fun to see Steiner and Sting again so I carried on watching - sadly, I doubt I would have carried on watching otherwise as this was before I got into wrestling so had no interest in watching a "bush-league wrestling show."

But then of course I saw the X Division and that was what hooked me in the end. AJ was a revelation and then of course Aries re-joined. DX 2011 was when I finally realised I wasn't just going to watch it whenever I remembered to - I was going to watch every week. Then Aries and Roode's long runs as champions cemented me as "a TNA fan".

Re: What made YOU a TNA fan?

I remember seeing the kurt angle promo on the wrestling channel in the uk. And when it came to his debut with samaoa joe ive never felt so much tension, i was in the edge of my seat and i remember when angle butted him and hit the olympic slam i marked out like a mother fucker screaming my head off, ive been hooked ever since.

Re: What made YOU a TNA fan?

Curry Man and Samoa "I don't give a flying fuck" Joe

Stranded at a youth hostel, got free TV-supermonstereverything pack, was zappin through and suddenly Curry Man yelled at me "Hot! Spicy! Tastes greeeeeeat" and I was like "???????" and thought it was some teleshopping crap, and suddenly they switched to Joe in ring, I thought "oh, some wrestling thing, who's the fat bloke". Well, after the fat bloke did a bloody moonsault, delivered a great match, moved like he was some cruiserweight and killed his opponent with a crazy submission chain I was hooked
