TNA has tried to copy the company take over angle pretty much every year without understanding WHY the NWO worked. You are doing the same thing with weighins...its a bad move...as again...wrestling has no weight limits.
Weigh-ins are logical way to get the fighters together. Have a press conference talk about what Wrestler A is going to do to Wrestler B. You can pre tape the Weigh-ins and hide a guy who sucks on the mics flaws.
If I ran TNA I'd act like Wrestling was a sport.
Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe
Kurt has the wrestling and stamina advantage
Samoa Joe has the reach, power, and submission advantage plus he outweighs angle by 80 lbs.
the NWO angle worked for two reasons.... The internet was in its infancy. The Wrestlers who jumped ship from the WWF to WCW were Big Names and Hogan turned. A NWO takeover angle would easily work in TNA if TNA signed the right stars. You have Ziggler and CM Punk show up on TNA and have Kurt Angle join them the angle would work.
The Aces and Eights sucked... It was basically the NWO B-Team invades TNA.
