Dixie's had many opportunities to replace Russo, she just fucked up on every one.Personally, I think we need some fresh minds injected into the creative process. Guys like Dutch, Russo, & even Cornette to a degree are of another time, and I think its time for somebody else to take the helm & insert a fresh take on things into the show.
what u on about? :lmaoDutch was a fine booker, he actually helped a few divisions that Russo fucked over (ie: KO Division). So yeah, he did some silly shit when Jeff Jarrett was head booker, but at least he wouldn't have a storyline on Hall of Fame rings.
You mean the 07-08 time frame when Vince Russo was on creative and his finger prints were all over the show.
I see your point on Russo-WCW; I still lay the final blame on Jamie Keller for cancelling WCW programming but your right Russo never under stood the different wrestling fans want different things.Dutch always had Jeff Jarrett and Vince Russo to deal with. We never seen a 100% Dutch product, that being said I don't like Dutch that much either. I think Dusty and D'Amore are the best head creative guys in TNA history. Dusty bad wasn't terrible and he came up with with a lot of great ideas and push the X division and tag titles hard.
I used to be a Russo supporter, until he killed WCW. Yes, I said it. WCW lost all it's true essence under Russo.
So did Mike Tenay and yet he sucks...You mean the 07-08 time frame when Vince Russo was on creative and his finger prints were all over the show.
I'm not even crapping on that time period as I found the last three months of 07 to be very entertaining, plus 08 had that Joe-Angle build that drew to my knowledge TNA's highest paying domestic live gate.
As for why Russo get's so much hate, listen I use to be a big Russo supporter back when I believed Dutch and Jeff were holding back Russo's creativity but the truth is Russo had imput and recently I feel Russo's been exposed as being a one trick pony and for whatever positive he brings it's not worth all the negatives. He does more harm to a product than good and in truth wrestling in general has moved beyond his vision and he's stuck in the past.
Another thing, I don't know why people get pissed at the change to the Last Man Standing match.
All they did was apply Texas Death Match rules to the Last Man Standing, what's the big deal? People bitch that TNA does nothing but copy WWE and when they go in their own direction on a match type they get bitched at for it; I don't get it.
As far as Dutch as a booker; The guy drew big money in PR and won WO awards for best booker in the past and other wrestlers have put him over for having a good mind for being a good booker, so as far as TNA's mistakes go I give the guy the benefit of the doubt more so than Russo now.
Except Russo was there too so he was part of the team that made that "crap" in 07 & 08. Didn't have a problem with Dutch being fired, but did have one with Russo not following him out the door.
Tenay actually was a good announcer, He's more of a sports type announcer.So did Mike Tenay and yet he sucks...
