    Does anyone have an inkling of who this "shocking" signing would be? Outside of AJ Styles coming back, I can't think of anyone out there that would go to TNA and make a lick of difference...

    ReplyDelete
  6. That was actually my guess. That or Del Rio

    ReplyDelete
  7. They need a couple of high flyer's like Neville on the main WWE rooster i feel. Who else is going to get punched by Kane for 5 minutes, dropkick his knee to comeback for ten seconds, and then get pinned with a chokeslam out of nowhere?

    As much as we razz on the company for never giving smaller people a look, they sure have a lot of high flyers / smaller competitors coming up through the system. Neville, Zayn, Breeze, now Kenta and Devitt to the mix as well. I'll say this, they have the talent to be spectacular in a few years.

    Seriously, has this company learned nothing in 12 years? They are one or two TV tapings away from ceasing to exist and they're still playing these bullshit games. If there is a new TV or talent deal, announce it. If it's not final, and announcing it might somehow screw it up, then for the love of god don't tease it. They have a fan base desperately hanging on for any positive news of them maintaining their very existence, and Dixie Carter keeps pretending they are one or two chess moves away from toppling WWE from its perch.

  107. Once everything is settled with that company (new tv deal at some point?), they really need to have a new public figurehead for TNA. Dixie no longer has any credibility and can never give the product a major league feel. Let her collect her checks and do her stuff BEHIND the scenes only.

  108. Worst_in_the_WorldOctober 16, 2014 at 9:04 AM

    OK guys, so I think TNA is a dying piece of shit God awful company as much as the next sane person, buuutt... let's pretend for a second that the company is surviving another year. They get a deal with "The Dirtbike Channel" or "Country!" or some other obscure cable network. Is there anything realistic (no CM Punk or STone Cold or even Jim Ross running the company) they could do to turn things around? My suggestion, which they'd never do, is a complete and utter reboot after a hiatus. I'm talking:
    - Finally retire the TNA letters and go with Impact Wrestling Federation
    - Kick Tenay and Tazz to the curb and hire, let's say, Josh Matthews & Raven as the announce team
    - Gut the current creative, make a big play for Gabe Sabolsky to head the writing team
    - Vacate all the titles, start fresh with tournaments to crown new IWF World, Women's, Tag, and X-Division champs
    - Make an an announcement on the first show that such and such non-famous person (if Gabe takes over as Exec Producer, let's say it's him) will be the commissioner of IWF and will only appear on the show for major announcements. So basically tell the fans: this show will not have an authority figure as part of the storylines. Make that clear and then follow through.
    - Sign a few ex-WWE guys who can still go and could be worth building around (Chris Masters, John Morrison, DRew "Mcintyre" Galloway)
    - Sign Chris Hero. Yeah he's fat, but he has some name value and can put people over in good matches.
    - Make a play to sign Mike Bennett and Maria away from ROH. Those two could be bigtime star heels.
    - Never ever EVER mention Dixie Carter's name again on TV, and keep her away from all media, social and otherwise. The chick is borderline retarded and only does harm by opening her mouth and/or twitter account.

    That last one, to me, is probably the most important yet also the least likely to happen.

    OT: I actually enjoyed The Flash! Who would have guessed? (Well, DBSM did.)

    1. We didn't have to wait A FUCKING DECADE for Barry to discover his powers, put on the iconic suit and get down to superheroing. That puts it miles ahead of Smallville right from the start.

    2. Actual science! Well, comic book science, but still. Of course Barry would burn calories at an excessive rate and require a special diet, but most series would just dismiss those details as unimportant. And that's why those shows fail, because they don't understand the audience.

    3. Actual drama minus the wangst. Yeah, Barry's had a traumatic life and clearly has issues that haunt his psyche, but he's also a nice, normal, intelligent guy with good friends and a decent job. And he doesn't indulge in pity parties and incessant whining, he just embraces whatever life throws at him and gets down to business.

    4. The show doesn't waste any time and moves along at a brisk pace, which is always appreciated.

    5. I don't know the mythos, but it's clear they're already setting up some big events. And I almost marked out over the broken cage.

    Good stuff so far. We'll see about Arrow.

    It's tough, but I go with "All-American Boys" for the win.

  139. Only if the first two are in a rematch.
    He has too much credibility. As does Canadian Comedic Legend Dave Coulier.
    Lashley gonna lose an ear with the title?
    Haasley? Hass C 3? Hassstar Spud? Hasslow?
    Been there, no desire to go back.
    PERFECT! He can bury a second world title.
    EVEN BETTER! She can make it three after "beating" Havok.
    The only team I want them in is in my bed.
    He's perfectly mediocre. Exactly what TNA looks for.
    Too credible.

    Impact was horrible from what I watched last night. Even if they get a new deal it's still going to be a depressing product with an absolute dearth of talent.

  153. So, since Meltzer reported this about TNA, can we just assume he has it all wrong?

  154. I hope TNA stays alive. I hope they stay alive, and keep getting caught re-hiring Russo over and over again. I want him at every staff meeting sitting in the back disguised with a fake moustache or a wig and dress on. And every week he's caught, Samoa Joe tosses him out by the back of his pants a la Uncle Phil.

    Carter has reportedly told some of the TNA talent to expect a major
    announcement very soon and also claimed that they were in negotiations
    with someone who would "shock people" and have a new signing that they
    expect to bring some buzz on the product.



    Reporter: Dave Meltzer, Wrestling Observer Online...is this a joke?

    Dixie: [cheery] Far from it, Dave. This announcement will prove the dream of TNA Wrestling becoming highly competitive WWE is within the reach of the common man.

    Reporter: Wade Keller, Pro Wrestling Torch. No really, is this a joke?

    Dixie: No, Wade, and no more questions about whether this is a joke!

  167. So I think it's 2 possibilities.


    1, TNA is bringing in the head of whichever promotion that ran Bound for Glory with them, hoping that this will show possible networks they have a plan.


    2, a former WWE wrestler, a reality star, or a retired athlete for buzz, hoping that this will show networks they have a plan.


    The reality is, they have no plan other than to self broadcast through the internet.

    ReplyDelete
  168. At this point, TNA needs a complete overhaul. Their storylines are boring, they've wasted a ton of talent, and their promotion is so abysmal that it's like someone is promoting the show using carrier pigeon.

    I'm not sure what can be done to help them aside from an enema.

  169. Only if they reintroduce the Legends title.

    He's been back. And I'll let Scott Steiner tell you what shape he's in.

    Man, I think adding Federation should be key. It's a word that's so associated with the glory times for pro wrestling fans, and it's totally available. Plus it just makes them sound like a legit sports organization, a nice contrast to the company with the word "entertainment" in their title.

    I remember Bischoff and Hogan really pushing for the name change, but Dixie refusing because she claimed the name had a legacy and value to it. Which is just another check in the column of "Dixie Carter is Borderline Retarded". The only value that name has is to remind them that this is indeed the wrestling show that's been awful for ten years. If this company somehow gets a reprieve, what they need to do is absolutely bury and run away from their past, not embrace it.
