His most realistic goal that he would like to achieve personally with TNA in the new year:

"On a personal level, I would love to be part of TNA's strategic growth. I think that's one of the biggest challenges right now that TNA has. I would love to see more programming out of TNA across different channels, as well as potentially on Spike TV. Different types of programming. I think all of those things, just like we're seeing in WWE (the fact they're bringing back Tough Enough), that is an perfect example, I think, of what TNA needs to do to grow their brand. You can't keep preaching to the same choir over and over and over again and expect to grow the congregation, so to speak."

His thoughts about the main event #1 Contender's Match at Genesis Pay-Per-View between "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan and Mr. Anderson & TNA giving a "strong build" through the past several weeks on iMPACT & ReAction to their main event this Sunday night:

"I think we had a great build to the # 1 contenders match in the three-way at Bound for Glory. In this particular case, I think we have a good slow & strong build. I think what makes the story resonate with people probably is there's enough reality in the story that it's plausible, and it's believable. The more reality in a story, the more I think I people gravitates towards it."

Why he is not satisfied with the Immortal storyline to this point thus far, the impact that Hulk Hogan's back injury had in the changing of TNA's initial plans for it, & why he is excited to see where things go in the very near future on TNA programming (with a "much more effervescent Hulk Hogan"):

"No I'm not. Clearly there was a pretty big setback with Hulk Hogan, which forced us to kind of shift on the fly, in terms of that storyline. At this point, the story is not where we wanted it to, be but as frustrated or disappointed I may be about that, it's part of life. But I'm equally as excited about where it's going to go in the very near future. I talk to Hulk almost every other day, if not every day, and he's getting better. I think the prognosis for him & his ability to become active and a part of the story in a much better way: You're going to see a much more effervescent Hulk Hogan than we've probably seen in a couple years, and I think the story's going to evolve very nicely."

Whether Sting will be returning to TNA in 2011 or if we will see him sign with the WWE, especially with the speculation of a WCW-themed Hall of Fame class as part of WrestleMania XXVII weekend in Atlanta:

"If I had to guess, and if he is going to sign another agreement, which I'm not sure he is going to do at this stage of his career, my bet would be that he is going to sign with TNA. I'm not sure what Sting's motivations are at this point. I know physically he's told me on more than one occasion that it's getting harder & harder to deliver the type of performances that he wants to deliver in the ring for his fans. That's got to be a big part of his consideration. I think realistically, if he would go to the WWE, there would be some additional pressure, much more than in TNA, to perform in the ring, and that would be a hard thing for him to do at this point in his career."
so Hogan will be more prominent soon. yay!

while i find Morgan boring, i also think they did do a great job building Anderson/Morgan, and it seeming like a legit feud over concussions and whatnot.

i dont understand the hate for Bischoff. i think its clear he knows what hes doing.

I don't think Eric Bischoff will stay through 2011. It's time to move on and the changes that he made haven't worked well for TNA, especially that some of them no longer remain.

Hulk Hogan needs to go too, especially on medical grounds. It's a reasonable solution and we do not need to see Hogan being plastered over everything again. It sucked hard and the Immortal storyline is just horrible. It's time to end it in a few months time, Hogan and Bischoff can then make their departure and TNA will have to fix the mess that they left.

So Hulk Hogan and Bischoff should just leave in the middle of a storyline that they are involved in? Oh wait let me guess... when that happenes you'll start bitching about how TNA let go of 2 personalities who were involved in a major storyline.

Bischoff is not the head of creative, so I really don't see why people bring him up to blame TNA for not hitting 1.4 ratings on a more regular basis. You could probably blame Hogan more as he probably has a deal which gives him TV time, but Bischoff has improved TNA's game in terms of presentation, broadcasting, bringing back the 4 sided ring etc...

It's not Bischoff's fault that some of the TNA wrestlers like Jay Lethal, Doug Williams and Amazing Red simply don't cut it in the mainstream.

If he did, then the ratings for TNA would've met his expectations. I'll admit, what he's got right now is actually looking pretty good, but what he's been doing over the past couple months has been horrible.
