So we're taking the easy road and making lists are we? Well then...
1) Make wins and losses count through a rankings system. Make them the reason that a wrestler moves up or down in the rankings and make them the reason wrestlers get title shots.
2) Track each win and loss on-screen and online for fans to view.
3) Show segments of wrestlers training and preparing for a match.
4) Hold press conferences for all of your major PPV title fights and show them on Impact Wrestling.
5) Hold weigh-ins for all the major PPV title fights and show them on Impact Wrestling.
6) Breakdown through a "strategy session" of sorts the X's and O's of major fights. What advantage does one wrestlers present over another, whose finishing move is more punishing, who you believe will win and why, etc. Mike Tenay hosting the segmant plus, one or two of Tazz, Jeff Jarrett, Al Snow, Danny Davis, Simon Diamond can be used as the host and match analysts respectively.
7) Bring the gritty, realistic feel that you have on the "Before the Bell" 1/2 webshows to the main TV show Impact Wrestling.
8) Start every week off with a high energy X-Division, Knockout's or Tag Team match much like WCW was doing with the cruiserweights on Nitro circa 1996-1997.
9) Bring back GutCheck but run it bi-monthly this time so as not to go on overkill.
10) Bring back Open Fight Night.
Agree with most of these (not Gut Check, though). I'd like to see more backstage segments and filmed slots. I'd also like to see more pre-match promos (like they do at the PPVs) or at least post-match promos. They've started showing post-match promos on Xplosion and it really makes a difference, especially when you get a good mic worker. And the Behind the Bell things are great. Why they don't show edited versions of these on the main show is beyond me.
But a few other things....
1) Keep Hogan but as a Master of Ceremonies role only. Any storyline involvement should be him as GM, quickly enabling feuds etc to progress. he should NOT be an active protagonist in ANY storyline.
2) New commentary team.
3) They need to do some proper market research. Why do TNA fans watch TNA? Why do they not watch WWE? Why don't WWE fans watch TNA? etc. Then settle on a brand identity (as a genuine alternative to WWE, preferably) and stick with it - no more just throwing things at the screen and seeing what sticks.
4) Creative - Creative is TNA's real weak link. Whether that's because they're incompetent or because the management structure at TNA is shit and they undermine the Creative team, I don't know. But they have a great roster that is being used BADLY. There's no reason for some of the crap we've seen in recent months when you have workers of the calibre they have. There is something wrong at the Creative end of the business and they need to figure it out.
5) Consistency. TNA will grow if they put on a good show, but it will happen slowly and it will more than likely be through word of mouth because the show is consistently good. You could see this in 2012 - by the end of that year, whenever I saw a "TNA sucks!" post on YouTube or wherever, that commenter would be inundated by "Man, TNA kicks ass now!" comments. If they had kept that up for 2, 3, 4 years, they would see real growth. As it is, people hear good things and tune back in for the first time in years, just in time for TNA to do their usual nose-dive in quality.
