Default TNA Eras

WWE is defined by its eras and all the moments and superstars that made those eras. Some are official (attitude era) others are only named and defined by the fans (ruthless agression era). Does TNA have any of it's own signature eras? If there aren't any official eras, how would you define the history of TNA? What are moments that started/ended an era in TNA, what were the signature moments that defined that era, who were the stars, and what would you name that time period?

for me, TNA has always been 'attempts', not eras. the Jarrett Attempt, the Russo Attempt, the Hogan Attempt...

Default Re: TNA Eras

An era is defined by a certain style (wrestling/gimmick), so there definately are some definable eras in TNA

2000-2003: Trial era. A lot of the wrestlers/ideas during these days were actually horrible. There was no clear direction, they were just trying out things to see what worked (and most of it didnt work).

2004-2007: X-Division era? The emphasis was on fast-paced exciting wresting, with mostly homegrown (indy) talent. There wasnt much storyline in those days, but the actual wrestling was far superior to anything else we've seen in North America. Pretty much all of TNA's top matches were from this era.

2008-early 2010: TNA moved more to a story-driven build, and ex-wwe guys became more important. Ratings went up significantly compared to 2004-2007, so there was a clear growth for TNA during this era, which had for example the MEM and a very interesting tagteam division. And naturally this era was the peak of the Knockouts division. And yet, many TNA fans dont remember this era fondly, probably because the X-Division style from 2004-2007 started to shift away during this era.

2010-current: Hogan/Bischoff era. The wrestling style and show structure has changed a lot, it basicly became a WWE-lite show. The X-Division, Tagteam division and Knockouts were basicly completely removed. And old TNA guys who helped buildup the X-Division were replaced by ex-WWE guys. It was however also the era where Austin Aries, Bobby Roode and Bad Influence became stars, although that wasnt until the latter part of this era.

My personal favorite era was 2004-2007, although 2008-2009 also had some good moments (tagteams/knockouts mostly).

It's still on. That's just one giant era still going.
