And why haven't you told Vince about your absolutely brilliant give-our-biggest-draw-to-the-competition plan? I'm sure he could use a good chuckle.

How come the WWE has had some of these wrestlers of theirs in movies if they don't appeal to anyone other than wrestling fans.

Well, they usually don't have anyone in their movies that don't have mainstream appeal. Outside of the direct to Walmart DVDs, which get so little marketing outside of ads on wrestling shows that not to many non wrestling fans even know about them.

I agree that Cena is way more popular, hundred percent.

I'm not a big WWE fan but he has his movies, his rap album and then you have all the good publicity he's involved in such as Make A Wish, Tribute to the Troops etc. He comes across well in interviews and is known as a "nice guy" so people are drawn to liking him.

And then there's WWE, if you go into a toy section at K-Mart a John Cena toy is front and centre, if they're doing a WWE promotion you'll have Cena front and centre. If you go to an arena and see a WWE billboard odds are Cena is going to be on it. Commercials feature Cena. He's the poster boy so even if you're not a WWE fan you know who he is and maybe a little about him also.

I think Hogan will be gone and Bischoff with him since they are like BFFs!

who could possibly rise up to that kind of fame if cena left?

a lot of the time it feels like they're relying on him just to remain stable

Pff, John Cena is not world-wide famous like Hulk Hogan. I ask some dude if he knows who Cena is and he will probably give me a blank stare. If i ask about The Rock they will mention he's an actor and Stone Cold i don't really think he even is that well known in Europe for non-wrestling fans as he mostly have done some B-movies that nobody really watches.

Macho Man Randy Savage on the other hand is pretty well known. Mention him and Hulk and they think of wrestling. Everyone is pretty much of the radar atleast in Sweden and the other Scandinavian countries outside of the wrestling-fans.

Both need to go. Bischoff hasn't come up with a creative idea since 1996. Hogan and TNA are a horrible match. Hogan should be in the WWE, TNA should part ways with both of them and try one more time to go in a new direction.

Just what TNA need. A guy in his late 40s who would demand a high 6 figure contract and who isn't motivated to help the company.
