Re: Could you book TNA better than TNA?

Probably could; considering past bookers were Bischoff, Russo, and other hackjobs I would't feel any pressure in trying to outdo them.

Those guys could get away with it because they had big names and Dixie was in awe of them. Everybody here would have the network and the Promotion on our backs the first time something goes wrong.

Re: Could you book TNA better than TNA?

Yes. I think I could. However, there's no way in the world that you're ever going to get the majority of people to agree that any one single direction is best. If you polled 100 TNA fans about who should be champion, you'd probably get the following responses:

40 AJ Styles
15 Jeff Hardy
15 Bully Ray
8 Bobby Roode
8 Magnus
6 Kurt Angle
4 Austin Aries
2 Sting
2 Hogan

Even if my numbers are WAY WAY off, my point is still valid that everyone views it differently and thinks that "their guy" should be the focal point. So, it's really hard to book in a way that you'll get fans to agree with. The Internet Wrestling Community is very picky and anal. That's not necessarily all bad but it makes for a lot of 'marks.'

Also it is easy to have a good idea but to be able to use it and make it work is a completely different thing. Also being able to have longevity is hard as well. Most people would have writers block within weeks.
Most of that stuff would be the job of head of talent relations and the agents.

How do you think bookers learn how to book ?, it's wrestling not rocket science.

ok guys. put up or shut up.

book something you think is better then what tna is doing.

i feel like i've had some good ideas about possible storylines(like the thread i posted about how id book an aj/magnus fued and some people even said it was a great idea)

but to be a full time booker, probably not. booking matches, storylines, promos every week is probably tough.

i honestly think i could book the tag division better then tna right now since its pretty non existent. tho it would involve hiring a few guys.



AJ Styles vs Austin Aries happens ON TV[X]

I am not saying that those are the booker's jobs. I am saying that those are all things that get in the way of being able to flesh out your ideas. Look at the card for BFG for example. The booker had a completely different card in mine before the summer. Things like budget cuts and rehab has drastically change what they had in mind.

Re: Could you book TNA better than TNA?

Lol at the people saying "yes" you're all smart marks on your computers just like me and everyone else on this message board.

Could I book TNA better than TNA? No and nobody else here could. Most people here have suggestions that consist of "Fire Hulk, Sting, Hardy, Angle, Bully and hire Kevin Steen and The American Wolves"

Yeah, that'll put butts in the seats. I'd like to request a 3 month plan of what the people who said "yes" would do if they were in charge of TNA. I can't wait for the hilarity.

Re: Could you book TNA better than TNA?

While I'm not ready to pass judgement on the current situation, what with the recent changes (leaning positive, but we'll see), some of the time, yes I could do a better job. Like anyone else, those folks TNAís placed in charge of booking make mistakes, a few big ones and more smaller ones that lead to larger problems, and at other moments they do something a bit inspired. Overall though, they havenít been consistently good enough. That sounds blunt, and arrogant, coming from someone who isnít a backstage professional of any sort in the wrestling industry but I know a little about how itís done and, more importantly, I know people who know a lot more about doing it right and Iím not shy about asking for help when itís needed.

TNA might be better off if they put people in place who, if they canít be consistently inspired, are at minimum correct most of the time, flexible enough to change direction/accommodate egos without trampling everything else/work around problems when reasonable and willing to admit when itís time to give an expert a call.
