If WWE were the smalltime company, that section would be obsessed with ratings too.

Re: TNA needs to just say fuck it

see they just need to keep it simple and thrive on the style of wrestling that WWE wont do anymore, things like harcore matches (blood and rutheless agression) edgy language with short sweet story lines. Not a cluster fuck of 3 diffrent confusing factions (whos members are in and out and up and down and all over the god damn place) cutting rediculously long promos that go literally FUCKIN NOWHERE, then we cut guys or change their character on a dime left and right so its hard for fans to follow whats really going on. and idk maybe have someone get put over clean without a cluster fuck finish involving 4 diffrent elements to further a storyline we are just going to drop in 2 weeks anyways!!! Change your writing to an ECW "we dont have much of a story line we focus more on the action" style and things will probably look up for TNA, but Dixie Carter is to wrestling what Sarah Palin is to politics, a joke. not to mention TNA removed the first part of a big tumor in firing Brooke Hogans worthless ass now they need to schedule a 2nd surgery to remove the hulkster thus getting the cancer that is the Hogan family out of TNA.

“Look, let’s start with some tough love. You two suck at peddling meth. Period. Did you not plan for this contingency? I mean even the Starship Enterprise had a self-destruct button.... I'm just saying.” –

Re: TNA needs to just say fuck it

how do you expect them to grow,When they are now mimicking wwe.Noone wants to see 2 companies the same.Smaller being a cheap rip off of the bigger. They used to be so different.They need to make the brand look and feel alternative again.Stupid stage set thats all pretty looking like a wwe thing.It should be much smaller and edgy unique.

Re: TNA needs to just say fuck it

TNA is the complete opposite of WWE and its great.. They have the edginess that WWE has been lacking a bit for the last while and I think its great.. Sure maybe a more aggressive direction would be better and make for a better product but for now why not just enjoy it for what it is.. A good alternative to WWE

Re: TNA needs to just say fuck it

Not in your way, but you should watch Impact and read the spoilers if you want an example of TNA saying "fuck it"

If your ratings have been stagnant for a half decade despite pouring tons of money into things, there's an issue there. TNA can't be consistent enough to grow their audience. I'm a hardcore wrestling fan and can barely deal with their shit most of the time. Casuals been gave up.

If ROH was on Hulu then I'd be a happier man.

Without any sense of trying to be horrible or anything else, if you enjoyed 2010, just stop watching the product and follow a different company, because that shit was the most godawful and atrocious attempt at a wrestling show I've ever fucking seen.

Re: TNA needs to just say fuck it

and to everyone else, who fucking cares.
I don't give a fuck if they scored a .18% rise in martians who're over 6ft tall last week, and why? because I have no personal stake in the company or the way its run. You give an hour and 20 minutes of your life each week to this show, is that a huge investment? no. So stop treating it like you're personally losing something everytime TNA draws the same rating it's drawn for the past 5 years.

TNA will ALWAYS be number 2, its not magically gonna change overnight. Maybe if wrestling has another boom period it'll gather some hype and take over, but that won't happen for at least 10 years i'd imagine. Their only other option is hoping that WWE commits a hate crime or genocide on national television, cos that's the only chance they have of being '#1'.
And y'know what? i'm absolutely fine with that. It doesn't matter, they're solid. They're not going anywhere, their wrestlers love working there clearly, and up until 3 or 4 months ago they were putting on fantastic shows weekly. I do hope they get back to that soon, but I do not care about ratings or whether or not they're close to the other company or anything but the show and the wrestlers on it. I wish more people would be the same quite frankly
