Default Re: How to book 2014

With the current roster...

Kenny King vs Zema Ion for X-Div title. Zema as face.

Taryn vs. Brooke for Womens title

Brisco & Bischoff (yes I think they need a push at this point) vs. Storm & Gunner for Tag titles.

Aries vs Sabin (Sabin heel turn)

Samoa Joe vs Abyss (heel)

Magnus vs Bully

Daniels (face) vs. Roode

Anderson (face) vs Kaz

Godderz vs Rampage

Styles vs. Hardy (double face)

Really what they need at this point is to bring up the young guys with potential like Zema, King, Godderz, people LIKE Bischoff, Brisco. Bring in more people that are young to build, they have guys that can be in the role of people like Jay Bradley, but aren't in the downward part of their career, age wise. Continue building Magnus through the roof near the top of the card. All feuds should be young vs veteran. The guys in their prime right now like Hardy, Styles, Roode, Storm etc. are getting to the age where they should not be at the top in around 3 years, so they need to start building the young guys right NOW. Like serious pushes....

There's a couple of good posts here but I'm glad TNA isn't booked by the IWC.

Anyway, what do I go with around this time next year?

Main feud going in would be Jeff Hardy Vs Bobby Roode. Bobby Roode is your dominant champion doing a Triple H type role and a role he played to success in the past. He goes through everyone, Hogan, Sting, Aries, AJ and the only man he hasn't beat in that title run is Hardy. There's your main event for BFG 2014.

NO STABLES-
Without stables and long drawn out storylines, fans will think every TNA episode will bring something new. Right now you can skip 2-3 episodes and still get the vibe of what's going on.

Make AJ Styles champion again-
It has been awhile since AJ won the gold, so he should probably get it at BFG, or at the very least the early part of 2014.

Build the Tag Team Division-
Not too long ago the tag team division in TNA was better than the WWE's, but now they have the tag champs jobbing to guys from Ace's and Eights.

Storylines for the lowercard-
Get more people involved in stories. Think about how many storylines are going on right now....I can only think of 1, honestly.

Sign a good Indie Wrestler and Build them up-
TNA has signed a lot of indie talents over the last few months, but after that they haven't done much with them. I really liked the Joey Ryan signing, and him as the referee of the knockouts was gold.

Wrestling over Popularity-
No need for guys like Sting, Bully Ray, and Hogan getting over the better wrestlers who are in their prime.

I'd put a lot more focus into the x division, knockouts division and the tag division. Actually put story lines into the x division instead of random fights.

Joe needs to go back to being a submission monster and i'd give Daniels a solid world title run. I'd make the main focus on TNA guys and have Hardy, Anderson, Bully etc... in high profile feuds but away from the title.
The first two are MUSTs. No more stables and every division should have some sort of feud/ongoing storyline/character development.

Joe being rebuilt and Daniels as WHC are things I would personally go for, but I think some may disagree.

Yeah, I'd agree with most of that.

True, I see what you mean. If, as a few others mentioned in the Godderz thread, Jesse had been introduced as a Hollywood douche with an entourage of guys who just stood in the background and laughed at his jokes but eventually you started introducing the guys from "The Entourage" into the main roster, then fine, I could live with that. But they're never like that - they're always huge groups who brawl in the ring with another opposing stable 1000 times, delivering 25 minute in-ring promos and eating up TV time.

After Immortal and this dire, awful, hideous Aces and 8s storyline, I'm even starting to get an allergic reaction to tag teams just in case another guy stands next to them and they inadvertently form a stable.....

Let heels win cleanly.

As another poster said, make Angle vs. Rampage happen at Lockdown and promote the HELL out of it. Have Angle go over. Then at Bound for Glory, build up Rampage vs. Angle II and have Rampage go over.

Magnus should be at the top.

Jay Bradley needs to get more TV time.

Let Bully and Tito be a solid tag team w/ Tessmacher as their manager.

Roode gets a second title reign. Aries too. And let Aries shoot like crazy.

Build Joe back up and let him unleash on the mic.

Have Sting and Jeff Hardy put over guys like Storm and Magnus.

If this happens, 2014 will be great.

Default Re: How to book 2014

It would be interesting if TNA just followed these simple guidelines:

1. No on-air authority figures

2. No major stable 'calling the shots'.

3. No company take over angles.

The product would be that much fresher if they just paid attention to those things.

Concur with those notions mon frère. Add in a request to start actually making sure storylines end with a sensible finish (like making fans slightly care about the Chris Sabin character being screwed out of his only World Title run).

Aw yes! this goat topic again. I would hire a bunch of dolphins and make them wrestle underwater with sharkboy as my poster boy.

Default Re: How to book 2014

Be a brief overview up to next BFG
WHC Scene

Presuming AJ will be champ post-Bfg. I'd go with a series against Hardy, Ray, Anderson, Bobby and Heel Sabin.

During this I'd build Magnus as a rising champ, defeating all members of Ego, Bubba, heel Sabin,I'd pencil in Lockdown where Magnus loses to AJ. The matches would be so close that the final match at Slammy will be the one where the rising gun gets the belt. A symbolic passing of the torch.

With the upcoming BFG series I'd look at having Joe win it. To do brother vs brother, with a new character for Joe as the envious sibling, not supporting Magnus's success.I'd take from his old feud with Daniels and do that Muscle Buster spot on the chair spot. Think it would make intriguing TV.

AJ would be the co-main event for BFG with the dream match with Aries. Perhaps have there reckless confrontations lead to them taking their eye of the ball and losing respective BFG series match.

Tag:
Have a tourney at Genesis. I'd go with a suprising choice like Angle and Parks to take the belt. I love parks and the skits would be priceless. TNA could do with more fun, while I've always wanted to see Angle as a tag guy.

Feuds are tough so I'd ask management to bring a couple more teams. Start off with Storm/Gunner feud and then bring on the Bad Intentions for Lockdown. Have Bad Intentions capture the belt after lockdown via interference by Bully/Tito(If he's still around). Carry the feud into BFG where Angle and Parks get their revenge.

Lethal Lockdown would be the culminating feud between Team Anderson vs Team Bubba.

X-Division.
Go down comic-heavy on Manik as the suit appears to have its own personality. The promos will be difficult, but interesting if he can pull it off backstage. You could have a dark or light tint to the character, depending on the opponent.

Have him hold it all year, till they hype Zema return Orton style, where he captures the belt. He will use Option C, where two new champs collide

KO
Have: Need some new knockouts desperately. MJ is doing a fine job so I'd have her hold it till Madison returns, where the promos will be immense. You can even throw in Gail if you want more diva activity. Have at Lockdown some form of BP vs MJ and a partner. The ultimate aim will be the face getting the belt at BFG, dethroning the longest reigning champ in history. I hate to say it, but Velvet looks the one till they get other talents.

Other notes:
I'd use Hardy and maybe Storm to get Sabin over as a heel.
Chavo would become a road-agent
Bradley will start using his KO boomstick to full effect. I'd have him have a score-checker on its victims post BFG. Rack it up similar to Goldberg's streak, have heels try to get the move banned. The aim is to make him a upper-midcard face by 2015.
Knux would be the monster heel being built up.
