Who Gives TNA The Best Chance Moving Forward?

Simply put: TNA is struggling right now to figure out its place and become a consistent, long-term-sustainable product. There's plenty of good there, but changes need to happen. With Hogan possibly leaving, and Bischoff potentially not far behind, who do you see as the right person to take the reigns and stabilize the company moving forward?

Regardless who it is, it definitely seems someone needs to have full control (as Hogan hinted of Bischoff recently in T.O.) to create something that can create a lasting identity and keep TNA viable a decade from now.

Obviously Bischoff could be given fuller control, or Jeff Jarrett's rumoured return could happen as well. There are dark horses like Jim Ross and Jim Cornette, neither of which currently want to go to TNA, but with full control could possibly be lured. What about a Vince Russo return in Vegas? Or there are always dark horse candidates (or maybe folks think Dixie can go it alone...). You decide!

Snobs in our head; marks in our heart.

Spoiler for My Top Favs:

80's: Jake Roberts, Ric Flair, Randy Savage, Ted DiBiase, Hulk Hogan, Rick Martel, Arn Anderson
90's: Scott Hall, Bret Hart, Steve Austin, the Rock, Vader, Mr. Perfect, Bam Bam Bigelow, Jeff Jarrett, Earthquake
00's: Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, Shane McMahon, Edge, Christian
10's: Wade Barrett, Daniel Bryan, Bobby Roode, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes, Austin Aries, Damien Sandow, Dean Ambrose

Hon. Mentions: Prime Time Players (Titus O'Neil and Darren Young), Michael McGillicutty/Curtis Axel, Ted DiBiase Jr., Drew McIntyre, Bray Wyatt, the Miz, DDP, Curt Hawkins, Corey Graves, AJ Styles, Antonio Cesaro, CM Punk

Spoiler for Things I've booked, written, put together...:

Re: Who Gives TNA The Best Chance Moving Forward?

If Bischoff leaves, TNA's production values will go back to utter crap.
Hogan is that type of special attraction that can be useful if used correctly and under the right price.

TNA is very sensitive to what goes around in the internet. Which leads to constant changes and lack of long term planning.
Smarks asked for blood, I believe this is like the 3 week in a row with someone blading. Wouldn't be surprised if they went back to that god awful six sided gimmick. But if bish and hogan leave, I think Bully would a great leader for TNA similar to japanese promotions that have that one great legend as the head.

The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Eric is their best shot regardless of what the smarks think.

Regardless of what excuse is made or "Bischoff is a one hit wonder" story he still had Vince McMahon in the back foot for a year and a half. Invest in Bischoff.

I'd be okay with Russo also.

Re: Who Gives TNA The Best Chance Moving Forward?

I think Bischoff does a great job as Exec Producer. The episode on Thursday was well shot imo.

I'd like to see Jarrett as Head of Creative with Lagana and Conway writing and contributing.

Re: Who Gives TNA The Best Chance Moving Forward?

I feel like Bischoff + a wrestling mind like JR or JJ is the best bet. not a great bet mind you, just the best one.

Re: Who Gives TNA The Best Chance Moving Forward?

last I heard Ross and Cornette re not options. neither is Heyman, who's not on the poll. I can't see Russo willing to come back. process of elimination that leaves Bischoff and Jarrett. I think they can work together and do a good job.
that's it.

Other. We don't know them yet.

Bischoff is an overrated joke.
Jarrett started TNA's downward spiral.
Ross will never come.
And Russo and Cornette? Haha, no.

Re: Who Gives TNA The Best Chance Moving Forward?

Bischoff is overrated. He beat Vince because he didn't have a budget spent what he wanted and signed all the WWF top talent and really didn't build much talent for the future beyond Goldberg, Stiener, and Booker T.

He won't have the check book nor the Ex WWE Talent this time around.

Jim Ross and GASP.... John Laurenitus would be the correct choice for TNA to hire.

Before anyone says Ross won't come that just because of some internet comments is stupid. Ross talked to the Carters before so he had interest.
