So having geriatrics Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan have a crap looking brawl on the first weekly Monday show, on the road to Wrestlemania, screamed must see. It was embarrassing.

Who the fuck gave a shit about Nasty Boys, Val Venis and Orlando Jordan in 2010? Two of those acts were probably even remembered by casuals.

Why make Eric Young look like a jobber by being fooled by The Band, then lose to Nash in a squash match to end the 'feud'. Not exactly putting him over. Considering he had a decent run as heel in 2009, this is a near burial.
God, loop hole in storylines, thats good then because those storylines gave them enough ratings to even the loss the suffered during Monday Night Wars. You are one of those typical IWCs, you can go on and bash Russo, and say that today's product is so good, but the fact will remain that Russo had ratings with him, 500 000 peoples stoped watching Impact after he left and more and more people are leaving each day. So, I think TNA should make complete show only for typical IWC. That will make you happy! Move on, you dont have facts for your posts, i have. Russo's period of Impact saw gradual increase in viewership each year! and since he left there's a gradual decrease in viewers each episode!!!

Re: TNA the best wrestling product but not getting the ratings - why?

They are asking WWE fans to change to TNA. It is not going to happen. It is a lot easier to ask the WCW fans to watch wrestling again. The product is better, but nobody with a 4 Horseman shirt is going to watch a wedding.
You can't have a girls prospective (Dixie Carter) on a wrestling program. Let alone the #2 promotion, that relies on the fringe element of wrestling. A more mature eye on whats going on. That is why a more wrestling based product would be advised.

I have yet to understand this mentally, in 2013 people try act like WWE owns wrestlers for life.
If AJ and Joe went to WWE would that mean TNA was better than them?



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.

I like angles that can keep me interesting in the product. You guys will never admit the truth. I know that. Just look around the ratings. TNA was LIVE previous year but they just got the lowest average rating since 2006! TNA is on road now, and still they cant even hit a 1.1 rating. Simple fact is TNA is no more interesting. It has great wrestling, but no such interesting storytelling power which they had during Russo's time. Atleast he kept viewers tune in every week, even though the show was taped, and was done in so-called shit-zone "IMPACT-ZONE". I mean wow, TNA under Russo with taped weekly episodes and with lot of "INTERNET HATE" was able to crack yearly average rating of 1.17, whereas TNA under Prichard, Lagana and Bischoff with LIVE episodes, on the road and so much "PRAISING" from the "INTERNET WRESTLING COMMUNITY" are not even able to crack 1.05 average rating!!! Last year they had just 1.01 average rating!!! Simply that only depicts what world you guys live in. Totally detached!!!

The truth is that mister vinny ru almost killed another company with his daily booking, 5 NoDQ matches per week, 10 heel turns per month and 100 screwy finishes per year.
TNA is finally getting people on seats, why? Because fans now trust the product and aren't afraid of russo fuckery anymore. But still, damage has been done... the lolTNA memes continue because of the stupid crap they did in the past which will haunt them forever.
Let's ignore the record attendances and increase in ppv buys like slammiversary (around 100% by the way).
Russo is a fucking hero because in the year he got removed and most of the shit he wrote was getting rejected, TNA got a overall rating of 1.17! Great fucking great.
