Well on the basis that Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff have now been in TNA for over a full year now and ratings are more or less the same as they were back in 2006 despite much more money being spent i would say no. The biggest storyline of last year in "They" and the whole 10.10.10 thing which should have carried a lot of momentum coming into 2011 was a major fail and due to TNA pushing through a storyline that was meant to see the return of The Main Event Mafia but was ruined by TNA failing to sign Sting, Booker T and Kevin Nash thus meaning a major rewrite which after seeing the spoilers is another fail which says to me that 2011 will be an even worse year than 2010 was.

In my opinion every year since 2006 has been seen TNA go backwards apart from parts of 2008 leading into Bound For Glory and then parts of 2009 when the storyline between The Main Event Mafia and The Frontline was good and after all the hype and build up to what should have been TNA's biggest year in 2011 they have again gone backwards. The only way that TNA can move forward in my opinion is for Dixie Carter to remove herself from all aspects of the company on the wrestling side and concentrate on promoting the company and building it up whilst also getting rid of Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and Vince Russo because they are destroying TNA with their booking and also draining the company due to their HUGE salaries.

No chance in hell. 2010 was one hell of a year (until Tommy Dreamer came in, at least) and had countless exciting moments. 2011 seems to be continuing the decline and reverting, slowly, to the shittyness of 08/09.

if 2007 wasnt a good year(Reverse battle Royal,Pacman Jones,Hard justice)
and 2008 wasnt a good year(joes botched Run,weekly Angle family/So Cal Val sitcom)
and 2009 wasnt a good year(MEM,Destination X,Jenna Morasca)

)

The avarage rating back in 2006 was 0.89, the avarage rating of TNA in 2010 was 1.07, which was worse than their rating in 2009 - their best year - 1.14, but even if we take only 2010 and compare it with 2006 it's over 20% up in the ratings , probably even more in terms of viewrship, I don't know how people keep these insane posts about how TNA is going backwards every year, comapred to 2006. Not to mention TNA's merchandise sells which seemed to be well up last year compared to 2009 and especially compared to 2006 where TNA probably didn't even have any merchandise to sell. May be you were exprecting their ratings to double, I don't know...if Bischoff and Hogan are losing money for TNA they will be released, Dixie is smarter than the internet jerks here who think they could do a better job at running a company , she can do the maths! But whether Hogan and Bischoff are making more money for TNA or are losing them money is known only by TNA management and not a single internet smark is part of that management I think, so stop trying to act like you know TNA are losing money because of Hogan and Bischoff.

We as fans can only tell whether we like what we see on the show or not, I like what I see on Impact from the beginning of 2011 - crazy Flair promos, Anderson and Hardy in a good feud, Angle is back, a few good matches but TNA needs to catch up with that a little bit, so ...I think it should be a good year for TNA, yeah!

Hopefully. I actually prefer TNA to WWE, it deserves to be more mainstream and succesful than it is. One of the first things I would do would be to relese Hogan and Bischoff from their contracts, and also move away from the Impact Zone and to arena's where fans actually pay for the tickets!

2nd part of 2010 was pretty decent. If Hogan won't show up with his retarded promos and his retarded "son" Abyss, this year should be much better.

Quite hard for it not to be ... 2010 undone a whole lotta work that late 2009 was producing ...

AJ/Joe/Daniels in the Title scene, Angle/Wolfe, 3D/BI/MCMG/BMI for the Tag Titles, Tara/Kong/ODB/BP with the KO Title etc etc.

This whole Immortal/They V2.0 business has to be sorted soon and we can have a simpler and more dynamic product. Its all a HUGE clusterfuck ... and I Like TNA!!

Late 2011 TNA could be dead they need to drop Hogan & Eric if they want to be the top wrestling promotion & quite stealing 96 to 99 WCW story lines they worked somewhat but now the are big time failures

Matt Hardy will be the catalyst of a landmark event for TNA in 2011. An event, a moment, a story so huge that it'll literally leave the McMahon family pissing in their pants.

I watched TNA once this year and when I saw Anderson carrying around that purple piece of shit that looks worse than the WWE Diva's championship I quickly changed the channel.

I'm not Miss Cleo, but I bet it won't be better. TNA has steadily declined since 2007.

Yeah, I guess you prefer watching The great Khali and Makr Henry dancing and hugging in the ring... or The Undertaker raping Kane under the ring...

abv where did I say the WWE was any better? You TNA marks should really stop trying to excuse the stupidity of TNA with the stupidty of the WWE. It doesn't work that way.

You didn't have to, it's obvious that you are a WWE mark, I just don't know why some people keep making crazy comments that they wish TNA's best when bashing them for everything they make. The belt is designed for Jeff Hardy and if you pay close attention you should have heard that Anderson is making fun of the belt calling it ugly from the day he won it.

I'm not a WWE mark. I openly say that the WWE sucks and has a bunch of talentless FCW clones. If you left your post (aka defending TNA at every turn) and looked in other threads, you'd clearly see I'm not much of a fan of the WWE either.

I like certain wrestlers in both companies though. However, TNA has such bad writing that despite having the best roster out there, their product is pretty much unwatchable. For years I would sit through Impact just to see my favorite wrestlers despite the awful booking/writing, but now there is just too many shows more entertaining than Impact for me to watch.

I don't care what Anderson is doing with the belt. So he is supposed to be world champ, yet he is walking around making fun of his own world championship belt? That's some real prestigious shit right there. The belt sucks. It's even worse looking than the WWE title and that's saying something.

I didn't bash everything TNA made, but a good percentage of it was crap and justifiably bashed. The guy asked a question and I gave my opinion on whether I think 2011 would be a better year. Every year since 2007 TNA has gotten worse and worse. It's hard to believe it was once my favorite promotion with a roster that isn't even as good as what they have now.
