Re: TNA the best wrestling product but not getting the ratings - why?
[QUOTE=Thomas Batista;16040826]There are ways they can do wrestling that isn't like WWE.
1. No on-air authority figure[/QUOTE}
Because the WWE invented that right? WCW never did that with the likes of Nick Bockwinkel JJ Dillion or Eric Bischoff and Ring of Honour have done that with both Nigel McGuinness and Steven Haworth so they must be a rip of of the WWE too right.
2. Create a KO Division that is LEAGUES better then the Divas Division. It should not even be comparable to WWE Divas skills.
They are well above anything the WWE is doing with the women WWE hardly even has storylines with the Divas anymore.
3. The company SHOULD NOT revolve around the WHC. Do like what UFC and boxing does, showcase different titles during the months, etc. The mainevent of a PPV might be for the tag team titles, the main event for Slammiversary might be for the X title, etc. (this is something WWE doesn't do).
Wrestling has always been focused around the World title going all the way back to the NWA, SMW, AWA etc. The difference is UFC and Boxing are real.
4. Get out of the 90's thinking that having ' big names' will draw in fans. Lockdown 2010 had all 3 original members of the NWO, Jeff Hardy, Team 3D, Flair, Angle, and RVD and they STILL didn't sell out the building.
Vince owns wrestling. It's important for TNA to have recognizable stars which unfortunately does mean WWE stars. If the alternative of TNA is that they have there original athletic guys that are unexposed then TNA is just going to lose out unfortunately that's just the way it is. When a casual fan turns TNA on they don't know who 90% of the wrestlers are that's what these WWE guys bring to the table. You need a mix of WWE stars and TNA stars in order to bring eyeballs to the product in my opinion. I started watching TNA in 2010 when Hogan came in. That however that was in 2010 it's 2013 now there is now a nice balance of WWE guys and TNA guys.
My point is it's wrestling WWE did not invent wrestling.
