the last few months it seems like TNA is running through the major eras in wrestling, what im talking about is the following:

hulk and flair/fortune- before the whole hollywood hogan thing

EV2 comes along as we usher in the days of ECW

THEY arrive and i suffer from severe dejavu

now they want to get more real? like...the attitude era?




i know there are alot more examples from old storylines but im talking about the ones we have going right now. input?

I don't see what any of this has to do with a rapper.

The joke was bad enough, but considering Usher is an R&B singer, you fail twice as hard.

And Yes TNA is too pre-occupied with recreating past events, not tribute, but recreating. Rather than use their resources to bring something different to the table and build more stars out of their own talent, they take the lazy and easy wway out by pushing people who've already had their time to shine, as well as rehashing storylines and ideas that the fans don't even want to see.

huh?


usher

v.tr.

1. To serve as an usher to; escort.
2. To lead or conduct. See synonyms at guide.
3. To precede and introduce; inaugurate: a celebration to usher in the new century.

i know who usher is but i dont see what the hell your post had to do with anything i said. thanks for trying to troll though least i got a bump.

I'm just joshing around in the lord's name guys, heheh.


OP is right though.

This all has been really close to what led up to the NWO (Immortal) Though, we'll have to see if it ends up any better than last time.

TNA will probably close down in March of 2011 to match the 10 year anniversary of WCW's and ECW's demise.

The irony will be of epic proportions!

I'm sorry OP but you're not the first person to make a thread like this.
It's beyond redundant.
