Well, TNA has better promos, segments, storylines, wrestling and wrestlers than WWE, so...yeah, in that aspect, but WWE is number one company in brainwashing sheeps so they could think guys like Miz have talent!
You obviously haven't watched Impact since Hogan and Bischoff took over. It's been absolute garbage. All I have to say is

Funny you bring up "wrestling." WWE and Vince McMahon are ashamed of who they are. They have an inferiority complex and would whore themselves out to a D-list celebrity any day of the week. Quite sad actually.

And The Miz is horrible and is the definition of the WWE's cookie-cutter mentality.
As opposed to the F-list celebrities TNA gets? TNA couldn't even get the most popular female from the Jersey Shore. They got some other one whose name nobody (including myself) can even remember unless they've heard it in the last 10 minutes.

As pure sports entertainment WWE is slightly better than TNA due to booking and appearance. TNA has more storyline, but much of it is difficult to believe in. WWE delivers more action between Raw, Smackdown and Superstars. The booking is cleaner.

NJPW, AJPW, NOAH, Zero-One and ROH piss all over both companies when it comes to classic professional wrestling.

Why is TNA better wrestling wise again? Lemme guess, you're gonna name the MCMGuns, AJ Styles. Kurt Angle who only wrestles once per month. A washed up Sting is the TNA Champ. Anderson is average, RVD is average nowadays, Ray is bad, and Styles is supposedly kayfabe injured; yay, take out your most exciting wrestler, awesome. Funny how things can change over a few years. Now the WWE clearly has the future, TNA has the past and a bunch of guys who should have been pushed a looong time ago (like Roode, who should have been a former TNA World Champ by now).
Wow, if WWE really has the future of pro wrestling than the future SUCKS!! Because almost every young wrestler they bought in is either mediocre or bad! Kofi, Ziggler, Swagger, NWO wannabes - these are horrible entertainers!

They're not "sports entertainers". They're "superstars" and "divas". And they don't put on "wrestling events", they put on "entertainments".

LOL. It's pretty funny that WWE is so strict on this terminology. WWE is still a hell of a lot better than TNA though. TNA hasn't been really good since about 2006. I keep watching hoping the product will improve, but it's just getting worse.

Everyone seems to forget the Japanese and Mexican promotions. The American (USA) wrestling market has taken a serious hit, because both TNA and WWE have horrible products at the moment.

Food for thought:

Back in 1995, 96 and 97, when ECW was a revolutionary, exciting product, the roster would defend the company like you wouldn't believe, and was insistent they were putting on the best product in the business.

In TNA, none of the wrestlers ever publically say TNA is number one, or even that its good. The only ones that do are the Hogans, the Bischoffs, and the Borashs. The office guys.

In 1995 the WWF wasnt nearly as cemented in America as it is today. It wasnt a strong brand, it was known then as the place Hogan used to be at. Now it is known as the WWE, the place that has had Hogan, Austin, Rock, & Cena. It has been branded over the years.

Point being, in 1995 ECW might have actually thought that it had a shot at catching a WCW or WWF. Now? It would take 10-15 years for TNA to come close to creating the same brand power as WWE.

It will take a visionary to get TNA into that limelight. I think TNA is much more enjoyable to watch than WWE, no question. But to the casual male or female, the brand "WWE" is all that matters in wrestling. When people hear "NBA" they think of the Lakers. When they hear "NFL" they think of the Cowboys. When they hear "MLB" they think of the Yankees. The WWE has created that strong of a brand. When people hear "pro wrestling" they think WWE. Wasnt always like that, especially when WCW was still around. People would have legitimate conversations about how WCW was going to catch the WWF again. People dont give TNA that respect because TNA hasnt earned it.

And since it isnt 1995 anymore, and WWE is such a mainstay in corporate mainstream America, it will take more than a ECW sized promotion to make waves in a genre completely known for Vince McMahons vision.

No, TNA is not the best wrestling company or even close, but its good JB is saying this. More TNA people need to go out there and say it like they believe it. I agree with JB saying this.

What a complete load of bullshit this is.

First of all, in 1995, ECW had no chance of overtaking WWF. None. Point is, they believed in themselves, because the guys felt they were part of something good. In TNA, nobody believes that. The roster had faith in their product. If TNA's show was great every week, those guys would be booming their voices, saying they're the place to be.

As for "10-15 years" to create a brand? UFC did pretty damn well for themselves in a space of two years, and they did it with wrestling's audience, so using that as an excuse for TNA's failure is cop-out.

TNA is a wrestling company and WWE is entertainment? LAWLS

what the hell is the difference between a 'sports entertainment pro-wrestling organization'.... and a.... 'wrestling pro-wrestling organization'?? it's just jargon and terminology, TNA puts on a TV show just like WWE does. they are the same type of business

Well, actually.. The WWE isn't a wrestling company, but an entertainment company.. So he's technically right..



TNA is a wrestling company? What? I see more segments in TNA than any time in WWE other than the Road to Wrestlemania.
