I'm talking about as in a hostile environment.. if TNA has a closed shop mentality. I wonder because when you look at the roster, the majority of the 'names' have been there for a long time. Not just signed to the company but in a good spot on the card.

Styles, Storm, Abyss and Sabin have there a decade. Daniels too if you discount his year break from TNA. Roode and Young since 2004. Joe, Sting, Ray, Devon and Hernandez has been there for nearly 8 years. Kurt Angle for 7. Even guys like Hardy, Aries and Kazarian were there for a while in the early days before leaving and returning. The promising Magnus is no newbie to the company and even Kenny King had a six month stint with the promotion.

Makes you wonder what it is like for guys such as Godderz, Ryan, Ion and Spud to walk into that environment.

Same as any wrestling company really, come in, take your lumps and just wait and hope someone thinks you're worth taking a shot on, i personally would love to walk into a locker room where people have been employed for 10+ years. Talk about voices of experience and job security.

Like the guy said above.Its no different from any new company. You have to earn your spot but i will say. I think TNA is easier cus they give you creative controller. Example Rock Star Spud is himself .Thats his character and he just has to excell at what he knows and he will do well. Its not the case in the other company. Brian Daniels is a example. Hes not himself. They force you into silly characters.


They allowed Aries to do what he knows best. Allowed him to run with his own persona and its taking him to the moon.The guy is very over.

Now i will say it doesnt matter what it is in the world. You have to work hard and u have to keep at it. Once you stop carrying you get dropped, and guys like Aries has worked hard to get into the shape he was and to stay tip top with all of his promos ect.

Just little examples.

I think that is key to allow wrestlers to find ther thing and roll with it. Its important that behind the scenes works hard to help develop that in every wrestler.Help them find that persona that works for them. Pretty much every good wrestler in that company is a example of that. Thats what will shoot the company to the moon.I think thats part of what is helping the company grow in the first place.

I heard an interview of Ion where he said that in TNA it's pretty much all upto you. They give you the opportunity to go out there and do your thing and get over. So if you do well, that's all because of your good work, but if you don't do well, that's your fault too. Aries is a great example of that. In one year he rose to the top and became the World Heavyweight Champion. I think guys like Godderz, Ion and Spud would be at least happy that they're not being held back and are getting the opportunity to do their own thing and get over unlike the guys up north. Also, Magnus hasn't been in TNA for as long as you make it seem. It's like you expect them to have given him a World Title run in 2010 when he was still pretty green and not ready. It's not smart booking really. He needed some more time.

It's tough unless your a former WWE superstar.

You all may make fun of people with "IT'S STILL REAL TO ME DAMN IT!" for the young kids or marks or whatever, but you guys are even worse than them. You have this deep-seeded legitimate rage for Cena and his fans to the point where you let it affect your day to day life.

Grow up. Seriously.

Yes, that is important, old-school and how it should be.
Like, for instance, when Jim Crocket signedwrestlers, like Jimmmy Garvin and The Road Warriors, they didn't repack them or change their gimmick, but just let them continue to do ehat they know and do best.

The only way to rise up to the top in TNA from the indies is to be fully developed character and give it everything when your time in the spotlight comes. Aries is an example of a guy who took an opportunity and absolutely stole the show every night. Hard to do but some guys on the indies can do it I think. Guys like the Briscoes, Adam Cole, or Kevin Steen could easily move up the roster quick.

So it's easy to get into WWE because bo dallas is there? I don't think so.
Second generation wrestlers have always been around this business, as long wrestling is alive politics won't change.
Now for a indy guy, TNA isn't a bad place to work (currently) just ask aries. But if you wanna make that extra buck, WWE is more appealing unless you have some insiders in TNA that will convince dixie you are that dam good (lagana).

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.
