Ten Changes TNA should make

1. Play Songs from Real Bands
2. Focus on the In Ring Product and not storylines (Only allow 1 DQ or Interfearance per show) last weeks show was over the top with Bad Influence)
3. More Cruiserweights
4. Create a Cruiserweight Title
5. Merge the TV Title and The X Division Title
6. Bring in More Tag Teams
7. Release the following people Hogan, Sting, Tazz
8. Turn Dixie heel and model her after the owner of the Indians from MLB
9. Tour Smarter - Better Venues in Bigger Cities and use College Campuses Gyms/Arenas - 2 Huge mistakes. Next Week TNA is in Maryland - Friday & VA - Saturday but they skip Baltimore and DC. You could have easily pulled off the MD Show on Friday, Saturday - DC & Virginia, and Sunday - Norfolk or Richmond or both.
10. Focus on Europe and India - Ring Ka King's Heavyweight Champion should have been a regular on TNA. I'd even go a step further and make a British or European version of Ring Ka King.

Another half-assed attempt. Well...

I'd second that, but it's a budget issue. If I have to decide whether I keep a decent worker under contract or license some songs, I would do the first.

They are already doing that and it's not doing them any favor. Best business decision would be to focus more on the storylines. This is when they draw good ratings, not when they show some pointless matches. Big matches are money, but they need storylines to be big.

Once again, money issue. The X Division is the only division where I'm fine with non contracted workers (Sonjay, Petey, Marasciulo, Rubix,..). They could bring in some guys from Japan and Mexico with PPA deals, but it's not like they had much luck with their cooperation deals lately.

The X Division belt is exactly that right now.

No. Just keep the X Division Title as what it is and scrap the worthless TV belt. There are barely 30 wrestlers on the roster. World, X and Tag titles are more than enough.

1. Money issue once again 2. Good indy tag teams watch out for a WWE tryout and give a single fuck about TNA 3. EZE hates tag team wrestling. I would love me some more tag teams, I just don't think we are going to get them.

Hogan: No. Viacom pays, TNA couldn't care less.
Sting: Also no, as long as he wants to stay.
Taz: Just signed a new deal, he isn't going anywhere

Love the idea, but she will never ever turn heel. Especially not now where she tries to cater to the WWE audience and fails at that. She is going to stay that awful American mom on screen character.

This Hagerstown, MD live event was sold out last year. Why pull it off? Cleveland, St. Louis and Little Rock (next three Impacts) are fine. The arenas are too big, but if they're cheap to rent, it might possibly be a good decision. BfG is on a college campus and the ticket sales look decent. But yeah, touring has to be smartened up, but they just started. They've already realised, that these Texas villages sucked.

Ring Ka King was an Endemol project. TNA supplied them with wrestlers and trainers, but that is it. If Endemol doesn't want RKK season 2, it is not going to happen.

Re: Ten Changes TNA should make

1. Put in place new rules to keep creative within the lines-- that means no more shenanigans, no more deadly weapons, no more garbage wrestling, no more interferences, and no more batshit ideas like Claire Lynch or the Hogan/Ray wedding.
2. Recognize the X champion as the light heavyweight champion of the world and refer to him as world champion everytime he comes to the ring. Then build the division around Aries, Styles, Sabin, and Hardy over the next year.
3. Replace the TV belt with a US/National championship which will replace the X belt in "Option C."
4. Kill Aces and Eights.
5. Put the heavyweight title on Anderson at BFG and tell him to start using his inverted figure four submission.
6. Build to putting the heavyweight championship on Rampage Jackson by Lockdown or Slammiversary.
7. Partner Kenny King with King Mo and call them Knockout Kings. Sign The American Wolves (because they need real tag teams). Split up Bad Influence and partner Daniels with a big man (Knux?).
8. Emphasize and showcase that you have the best wrestlers in the world and keep creative from screwing this up with shenanigans. Focus on events/spectacle matches and the number one contenders instead of conspiracies.
9. Replace the WCW ring with a 24 to 28 ft wide hexagon ring (or at least a 24 ft wide square ring).
10. Replace Hulk with a new GM and reduce his role (to managing a wrestler) so that when he comes out; it's not the fourth time he has been seen in the night and he gets a bigger pop.

Re: Ten Changes TNA should make

No.. What TNA's needs to do is get rid of Stables. Seriously I started watching the night Hogan debut(January 4th 2010)And since then I've seen Fourtune, Immortal, Ev2.O, The "New" Main Event Mafia and The Aces and Eights. That's 5 different stables in less then 4 years. Way too much!! I'm not even counting E.G.0 which would be 6 then.

If TNA just kill off the Aces&Eights, have the "New" MEM go away before BFG, I know it wouldn't make sense but seriously no one gives a crap about A&E anymore and Bully way more entertaining on his own. Concentrate on singles feuds. New feuds like AJ/Aries, Magnus/Aries etc have so much potential and the show would get a lot better

Re: Ten Changes TNA should make

Eliminate 3 way x rule
Recreate tv title division
Sign the American wolves and rebuild tag division
Bring back Kotm at slammi
Either tune Ono concept or go to alteast 6 live ppvs a year
World x cup annually or semi annually
End aces by BFG
BFG series back to all singles matches, no more 20 point gimmick matches
Cut dead weight like Chavo, terry, Brisco, etc,
Center the Whc picture around Roode, Aries, Styles, Joe, and Magnus for the next year



Do I really have to say anything?

And just before that you had the Old MEM, The Frontline & World Elite. Stables are fine once in a while but it's been complete overkill for a long time now. That and takeover/he who has the belt somehow runs the company storylines.
