Former WWE talent Ken Doane said the following on his Twitter account: "how did TNA know 'THEY' were coming? think tna thought 'THEY' would be in the WWE Rumble? LOL! Dont know why tna promos always have to remind us of wwe. wwe never reminds us of tna. Maybe tna's version of 'they' was the SQUAD! oh wait we pitched that to them and they didnt like it."


Former Ring of Honor wrestler Kevin Steen spoke to Power Slam about his future without ROH, whether he's received any interest from WWE or TNA, his longtime feud with El Generico, TNA's television product, and more.

Regarding interest from the two major promotions, Steen says WWE has never shown any interest in his services while he heard that TNA might have been interested in using him a few years ago but was never contacted. He questions why WWE would be interested in him when he's the complete opposite of what they look for in a wrestler, noting that he doesn't look like the typical athlete.

The interviewer then says it's hard for him to imagine TNA doing much with Steen on the chance he was hired. He feels the former ROH star would likely be 'just another mid-card guy, lost in the weekly blur of multi-man segments and short matches.'

Steen responds, "This won't look good now that I'm a free agent and I'm looking to make a living off wrestling...

"I've watched episodes of TNA iMPACT! and TNA pay-per-views. This is not a knock on the wrestlers because the wrestlers are the only thing that make [TNA] watchable, guys like The Young Bucks and The [Motor City] Machine Guns and Samoa Joe and AJ Styles and others. But I would watch an episode, and I would have to pause it because my head was spinning and I felt a little nauseous just from seeing so many things happening, one after another. The matches have so little time, so they would have to do so much stuff in, like, three minutes.

"I've literally gotten physically nauseous from watching TNA."

He's not very critical about TNA actually.

I see whta Kevin is saying. TNA's storylines are hard to follow. If you watch them regulary (like me) you have no problem with them tho(imo).

Ken Doane is just bitter imo. I remember he wanted to get into TNA so bad at one point.

Two guys with a decade each of experience in pro wrestling. It's somewhat interesting to hear their opinions on matters from inside the business.

Saying that, Doane comes across as somewhat bitter for someone angling for a job not too many months ago.

Steen makes a good point, regarding workers having to cram so much into matches. WWE's limited in-ring style at least provides a measure of pacing, sometimes TNA's come across as 3 minutes of high spots. Entertaining, but like eating too much chocolate, gets sickening after a while.

Kenny sounds bitter.

Steen prefers a product similar to ROH, and look how he defends the ROH rejects(Joe,Styles,Bucks and Guns)..

I understand Steen's opinion. There is a frenetic feel to every aspect of Impact. They often jump from promo to backstage brawl to 3 minute spotfest to post match beatdown. Sounds cool but it soon gets annoying. Very little pacing to allow things sink in.

Desmond Wolfe injuring Kurt Angle and the Samoa Joe abduction are two examples of victims of this style of production.
