I prefer a four sided ring - Johnny Impact

From the Ross Report...

https://www.pwpodcasts.com/2017/12/1...urprise-guest/

Quote:
Question: What is Johnny’s opinion between the six sided ring and the four sided ring

John says that there are minor differences but he much prefers the four sided ring. Fans are watching what’s going on inside the ring and feels the six sided ring seems unnecessary. Jim agrees that the six sided ring confuses him and says that wrestling should be essentially mindless entertainment (in the best way possible). John says wrestling should be escapism and the six sided ring can cause confusion to that. Jim adds that if you have to stop and process an escapism feel then what you’re doing is not working.
Agreed, its doing nothing for the company its not different from WWE or "preserving their identity".



Sunrise, wrong side of another day,
Sky high and six thousand miles away,
Don't know how long I've been awake,
Wound up in an amazing state,
Can't get enough,
And you know it's righteous stuff,
Goes up like prices at Christmas,
Motorhead, remember me now Motorhead!

Yeah, 4-sided ring is the best. The wrestlers prefer it and I think I can say most of the audience does too. The six-sided ring is so unattractive.

Re: I prefer a four sided ring - Johnny Impact

Anyone knows the reason why they started using six-sided ring in the first place?

There's not a wrestler in the world that wouldn't say that.. Wrestling takes place in a 4 sided ring, it's not the fucking UFC.

AEW
Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega, Allie, Luchasaurus, Young Bucks, Tenille Dashwood

UFC
Khabib Nurmogemedov, GSP, Rose Namajunas, Tony Ferguson, Daniel Cormier

UFC has 8 sides, not 6.



Yeah, it's too small anyway.

Re: I prefer a four sided ring - Johnny Impact

I don't mind the 6 sided ring. I do think it does give a little visual difference compared to other North American companies. I've read wrestlers saying they prefer the 4 sided ring doesn't hurt as much to bump on. To me it isn't a big deal either way. It doesn't change my perspective all that much as a fan.

Re: I prefer a four sided ring - Johnny Impact

I don't mind either way. But I do think that the reason the 4 side ring is preferred is because its the industry standard. If wrestling had always used the 6 side ring and TNA decided to use a 4 sided one, we'd have the same complaints just reversed.

jeff Jarrett idea, He wanted to stand out. When they first switched to 6 sides i thought it was so good and in fact the early days the 6 sided ring always looked bigger compared to these days.Maybe because they had smaller turnbuckles.


But over all honestly it is absolutely pointless now.It worked at the time because they knew how to use it and also advertise it as there brand and why its different. It just does not fit the new brand and owners at all . They really should be 4 sides again
