I think you will find that wrestlers swapping between organisations has been happening since the birth of professional wrestling back to the old territorial days.

End of the day, at the top of the business there is hardly a huge talent pool so the fact they have ex WWE wrestlers is quite irrelevant.

Both casual and fanatic WWE follwers are mostly hype-marks. All they give a shit about is what's trending. I.e. who or what the richest company pushes, even if they're clearly not getting over. You just have to take a look at the RAW forum on this site, it's an embarrassment, to say the least.

The only time this changed in history was when Bischoff was given unlimited funds and started luring dumbasses over in the mid 90's.

Fact: Retards will watch shit mainstream over quality minor league.

There's a few reason that go into this but here are the top two.

1.) They're not the WWE. Some fans will watch WWE because it is WWE and TNA will not get watched because it isn't WWE. Fair or not that is how some view it.

2.) They do not have a next level superstar. There is not one wrestler/Diva on TNA that is/or has the potentail to be a next level superstar. TNA doesn't have A Rock, Austin, or 80s Hogan. I know it is hard to create/get that next level superstar butk TNA having someone like that would be huge.

Because Hulk Hogan doesn't draw in 2013. A group of "bad-ass" heel's doesn't draw in 2013. AJ Styles was never a draw, Sting hasn't been a draw since the last 90's. D-Von was never a draw, no one gives a shit about Tazz, Mike Knox or Luke Gallows. Garret Bischoff sucks, Wes Brisco is just "there," and the last time people cared about D-Lo Brown was the Attitude Era.

And most importantly, they have no top face, no center character in their programming. They have a guy in their own roster who could be as big as John Cena. But, they continue to hot-shot the belt to 6 different people a year. Jeff Hardy is unreliable, yes. But, he's a really good babyface worker and was massively over in 2009. They could easily build him up as the top guy in TNA. He's easily marketable to all demographics and the kids love him. It's a win-win situation if TNA had the brain cells to actually make a top face.

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.

Advertising is a big issue here, to be honest though no matter what TNA does, it will take them a long time to compete with the WWE still, even if they make all the right moves. A second show for starters would be a good idea, one in which they can showcase other talents and build up feuds. Beyond that though, they got a very good roster, a lot of legends, great wrestlers, guys that can cut good promo's, and the show has been very creative. With one TV show, it's tough to build legit feuds and some of their divisions are non-existant, the tag division and X division in particular should be a lot larger then it is currently.

That's not exactly a fair point. No one knows who the next 'big star' is going to be. Did you think John Cena was going to be the face of the WWE in 2002-2004? I certainly didn't. Did you think Steve Austin would break away from The Ringmaster? I didn't.

The fact is, no one knows who the next star is going to be. For all we know, it could be Rockstar Spud. Shit example, but it's possible.

I seem to be the only one who doesn't get what's so good about TNA atm. imo all the wrong guys are in the main event, the Aces and Eights angle is average considering it takes up so much of the show.

You do realise that there were only 3 different champions and 2 title changes in 2012, and Bully will most likely hold the title til October? And they have shaped the top faces to be Hardy and Sting?

Nobody knows the TNA and fans are stupid. They don't want wrestling, they want the WWE. It's like the Call Of Duty's fans. The product is being shittier every year and you have tons of better FPS but they stay on Call Of Duty. The only difference with the WWE fans is that the WWE Fans think they are the smartest fans in the world and the the one who watch TNA are dumb
