The hate people have for TNA can be sometimes childish but what annoys me more is the lack of news for TNA and other wrestling companies and the way these websites pander to the WWE and say cena is talented.

BTW, orton and bryan are 31 now, they too old too meet your standard now? 35 is too old for you? your fn insane and grasping for straws now

Orton's 33. Sheamus is also 35, since he's missing from that.

Good point in that WWE's top guys are the same age pretty much... and Hogan was the face of WWF in his 30s, as was Austin in the Attitude era... the 30s are generally a wrestler's prime years. I'd much rather a 36 year old AJ be champ than someone like Zema Ion, just because he's in his 20s.

Because Dixie is clueless about how to run a wrestling company and we know that things could be a hell of a lot better than they currently are.

TNA has become watered down as it continues to try to emulate the WWE, which is the last thing a small competitor should do. They should be an alternative, not a wannabe WWE.

I don't think it's really about hating Sting, but hating the push he gets. Similar to Cena. People, I think, don't really hate Cena himself, but how hard he's pushed by WWE and the spotlight he constantly gets. This is the 4th straight year Sting is in the main event of Slammiversary. Before that he was in the Bound For Glory main event 4 straight years. He's the one made out to be the great savior of the company even though he's barely passable in the ring now. Sting has a place in TNA and even though I firmly believe TNA overrates his value, he does have a place there. It's just not the main event. I don't believe Sting is sitting back there lobbying to get these positions, I think TNA approaches him with these ideas and Sting either goes along with them or is talked into it.

I was talking about building for the future not necessarily right now. TNA is only using in any positive way two guys under 35. Meanwhile Ryback, Ambrose, Rollins, Bryan, Reigns and Ziggler are either a World Champion or main eventing Raw and Smackdown on a regular basis. Besides King and Magnus who in TNA won't be 40 or older in five years that has potential? I also didn't even tap into NXT or guys like Big E and Fandango who are brand new. While TNA is considering Adam Pearce WWE has an eye on people like The Briscoes, Adam Cole and Mike Bennett who are all under 30.

Yes I know they have OVW but they haven't used it at all yet. The young gutcheck guys get sent there and are never on tv. TNA used to have a lot of young talent and now they are older or gone and they don't have new young talent. Even the knockouts have been the same girls for years except Taryn Terrell who is a WWE cast off from a few years ago. Hell most of their former Knockouts refused to work for them for even one night a couple months ago.

The wwe champ is the champ, the world heavyweight champ is a mid card title at best these days, ziggler loses clean to people, they are doing horrible with him. Once again, bryan is a tag team comedic act, and ryback is just horrible and not a draw. sheild is great though.

and to your other point, So? who in the wwe will not be in their 30's in five years that has potential? You cant just make up years in the future to make them seem old when they arent, mid 30's is young, austin got big at 33. Was he too old too push now? having an eye on people= not signed btw.

Mid 30's is perfectly fine but 40 isn't. Austin was retired by 40 by the way and so was Edge. I clearly highlighted 40 and not 30. WWE has a lot of guys under 35 who are or can be stars while TNA may have one or two. Not many guys continue to wrestle into their 40's and remain good. Guys like Daniels and Kane are exceptions not the rule. It is amazing those guys are in their 40's and still going full time. You certainly don't revolve a company around guys that age. WWE using Rock in that way was a mistake in my opinion. TNA's tag champions are 40 and 42 years old (they also aren't over at all either). They have one world champion on their roster who isn't 35 in Samoa Joe who is 34. WWE has Orton, Miz, Ziggler, Bryan, Swagger and Punk. They don't plan for the future and the evidence is clear as day. They should be going after guys like Kevin Steen, Adam Cole and The Briscoes but instead they will probably continue signing older guys.

Age is relevant if it doesn't factor into their work. Bully Ray may be in his 40's but he reinvented himself and is one of the most interesting characters TNA has. Using that as a negative is moronic.

And no, they don't need need to sign every indie talent with hype behind them. Use their roster they have and quit neglecting them. I can't believe these indie theories continue to come up while about half of the TNA roster is more than talented enough to create a captivating product. (not to mention IF all these Indie guys were signed then what would happen to the rest of the roster? Just be released? Lmao. No way.) It's just the booking of TNA that's the true problem. Most never get to shine and the booking has roped many into a corner to do the same exact thing for months.
