An even better pole to put up will be who watches a wrestling promotion based on the ring shape, or, did anyone stop watching because they got rid of the six sided ring.

WCW had better production values, even when they hadn't got huge funds. WCW knew how to apply the 'less is more' mantra. TNA keeps trying to look like WWE using cheap fucking shit, like that hideous DIY ramp.

Re: It's Time For a New Six Sided Ring

I would imagine a lot of the talent don't want it back. I'd hate to have a six sided ring after every other promotion I work in has four.

Also a 24ft ring is completely ridiculous. 18ft is the standard, WWE uses 20ft and I believe ROH switches between 18 and 20.
I don't think you're paying attention closely enough. If you watch a UFC fight-- they have 32ft of space and work all over the mat. In UFC, they can roll around on the mat and slam guys in any direction without turning the action around because they have loads of room.

In TNA, the action is constantly turning around to move back to the center, both because the mat is harder at the edges and because they will throw a guy through or onto the steel cables. It's like wrestling in a small bedroom.

Re: It's Time For a New Six Sided Ring

Another factor is now that TNA is on the road, the size of the 6 sided ring would also force the ringside area back and that then changes the seating. It's simply inconvenient to add that 6 sided ring.

If anything, they could add a bigger 4 sided ring.

I think the 24 foot ring would be a vast improvement, especially for cage matches!!

I think that road show silver and black cage is way better then that thick black cage they use. Apparently each side weighs a couple thousand. What a waste of money hauling that around. I think A it stands out more and B you can see inside the ring much better. When i see people use that black cage,They hit the side and realy look like it hurt. Cus its very thick and solid. Un like a normal cage that has a spring to it.

Re: It's Time For a New Six Sided Ring

I think the ring should be star-shaped.

My 2013 Wish List:

[X] Angelina Love returns, TBP reunite
[X] Chris Sabin returns
[ ] Christopher Daniels wins the World Title
[X] Low-Ki returns
[ ] TNA comes to Hawaii

Re: It's Time For a New Six Sided Ring

Six sides of steel is way more interesting than "four sides of steel." That was one of the company's biggest PPV draws of the year. If they are going to use the hexagon for any special event; it has to be Lockdown.

Using a 23/24ft wide ring would only increase the density of the crowds.

No it's not. Never liked that six sided ring. Makes them look small time, like they're just trying to be different
