TNA/GFW merger?

> The rumor mills are swirling with.. uh... rumors that TNA and GFW could be announcing some kind of merger soon. Jarrett is tweeting out teases.

> The only way I can think this is a positive for Jarrett is if he acquires TNA"s talent (both wrestlers and production crew which I'm sure he needs) and tape library, and kills off the TNA brand name and sends Dixie packing.

Buy they could geometrically merge their rings and have, like, a TWELVE sided ring!  They'll make MILLIONS!

  1. If they get a continued TV deal out of it, good. No Dixie and the awful TNA name goes

  2. TNA & GFW merger? License to print confederate money.

  3. We'll take two small shitty wrestling companies and make one medium-sized shitty wrestling company!

    As for killing the TNA name, I'm not so sure. It may not have the best reputation but it is a recognized brand that people are aware of. I would bet that a small fraction of the audience knows what Global Force Wrestling is or think it's called the GWF, a mistake I have made a few times.

  4. As much as I'd love Dixie to go, it ain't gonna happen. If she wouldn't leave a year or two ago, she ain't gonna leave now.

  5. GFW would be the saddest Invasion angle of all time

    ReplyDelete
  6. 36 sided ring!!!! Oh yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thing is ... I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see TNA or GWF use a 12 sided ring.

    ReplyDelete
  8. That would end quickly, right after the first person tried to bounce off the ropes and got cut into quarters.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Oh shit this is for real? I thought we were making up hilarious hypotheticals.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Jarrett annoys me. Whoever his money mark is must be a moron if he/they think there's any value whatsoever in TNA

    ReplyDelete
  11. GFW sounds like the uncool cousin of VFW.

    ReplyDelete
  12. TNA and GFW, WCW just refuses to lay the fuck down.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I like that he says nothing is for sure until it goes through legal while tweeting about it every 3 hours.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Where is this coming from? Nothing in his tweets imply anything to do with TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  15. What's Dibsy Carmer doing in the GFW Zone?

    ReplyDelete
  16. That would be like selling your beat up old car to a guy that has no mechanical skills, but still wants to try fixing it, getting a newer car that doesn't have an engine, then going back to the talentless mechanic after a crash and asking for the battered old engine to get your new car running.

  17. Maybe they can do baseball stadium tours together. The GFW/TNA Double Header Tour!

    ReplyDelete
  18. A GWF and TNA merger, explained mathematically:


    0 + 0 = 0.


    That is all.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Are you serious? TNA doesn't even sound like the name of a wrestling company, and also people familiar with the company think it sucks the fattest and smelliest of all horse cock.


    Change the fucking name to literally anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's like dividing by zero.

  21. *Golf Clap*

  22. 33 and 1/3% chance.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Tna +gfw+ ?= profit

    ReplyDelete
  24. -1 (due to TNA lacking touring) +0 = -1

    ReplyDelete
  25. TNA + GFW + Vince Russo = Profit.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Ain't he great?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Still going to suck, whatever they do

    ReplyDelete
  28. And it spells disaster.

    ReplyDelete
  29. How is GFW going to have a merger when GFW has put on what like 2 shows?



    THE PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING LANDSCAPER HAS SHIFTED TO THE IMPACT ZONE

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes! We finally get the long awaited TNA vs GFW feud!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The Performance Center has no wi-fi? Wait, how can they get the WWE Network if there's no wi-fi at the Performance Center then? #ContinuityError

    ReplyDelete
  32. Quite telling that the UFC only used it once though and immediately went back to the old format after the live/taped experiment bombed.

    ReplyDelete
  33. No kidding, his Thrillseekers promos in SMW were more genuine.

  36. It makes a lot of sense for Jarrett if he gets their time slot.

    ReplyDelete
  37. TNA is quite literally the worst name for any brand in American business.


    What do 100% of people think of when you say, TNA? Hint: not wrestling.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I suppose that at some point, the WWE will have some actual competition. I don't think this merger, if it happens, would be it, or the start of it.

  39. Answer #1: slang for pre-teens talking about dirty words

  40. I could never find that album in stores as a kid. Can't imagine why...

  41. "Buy they could geometrically merge their rings and have, like, a TWELVE sided ring! They'll make MILLIONS!"


    The dodecagonned circle?


    Didn't the WCW Worldwide set circa 1994 have the ring set on top of what could only be described as a lazy susan. Maybe GTFNWA could take that idea a step further and spin the ring during matches to completely discombobulate their talent.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Tna isn't OFFICIALLY canceled a merger that gets rid of dixie and the tna brand means a national tv deal for jeff.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Tna + gfw - dixie + anyone really = Hunda hunda hundred bills yall

    ReplyDelete
  44. To quote the old and funny Dennis Miller, before 9/11 gave him crazybrains: "hey, folks, two of shit? It's still shit! If they really wanna fuck you, they'll give you three!"

    The idea of Dixie Carter crawling back to Jeff Jarrett to save her is one of the most amazing things I've ever thought of. Well at least one of the most amazing things related to TNA.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Actually a war games with the four sided ring and the six sided ring would be something unique. It could be as big as Andre the Giant (700 pounds, brother. 650 on the truck scale in Detriot, dude). I mean if you had two four sided rings and one six sided ring you could call the match - the gauntlet.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I would be excited for this -- killing the TNA brand name stink and maybe restarting with the talent roster (plus GFW folks that are signed, whoever they are) and keeping another place open for guys and gals to earn a living. TNA has provided some really good matches this year already, plus EC3's killer promos, so I'd like to see those kept alive on TV.

    ReplyDelete
  50. TNA + GFW = NAW GTF

    ReplyDelete
  51. So their target audience is the Dungeons and Dragons crowd now?

    I wish I could upvote this a million times.

    ReplyDelete
  53. He didn't say you need to show acceptance--just that you, clearly going into the show glass half empty, might not be the target audience for this, and therefore not the best person to review it. That said, I knew what to expect from your review, because it's what I typically expect from your reviews--unmitigated negativity.


    I don't agree that you shouldn't be reviewing this stuff, but I do wish there was an alternative that was at least neutral going into the show.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I don't know if it's the same for you, but the show actually played live on USA Network up here in Washington. Of course, I'm not home before 5:45, so it didn't help, but there you are.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I actually enjoyed the show. Mind you, I watch exactly zero reality TV, so the level to which I'm sick of it is not what a lot of other people are at, and I defninitely hope they will give more time to the wrestling and less time to the personal in the future (not no time though--if you took the house segments away entirely, you'd find it would make the show lifeless).


    It was flawed, but reasonably entertaining for an hour, and I hope they can iron out some of the stuff I didn't care for as much as we move through the season.

    ReplyDelete
  56. "That said, I knew what to expect from your review, because it's what I
    typically expect from your reviews--unmitigated negativity."

    Ok, first, I'm not the "target audience". I never will be. I'm here to review the stuff WWE puts on the air (and do so for two other blogs who count on me to review it for clicks) and decided to do this because it's fun to write. Being the "target audience" doesn't enter into it.

    Second, look at the stuff above. Tell me it deserves unmitigated PRAISE. Because you and I both know it doesn't. I didn't expect much from Tough Enough but I also didn't expect it to be awful, either. The show's a hot mess.

    It's ok to say it's a hot mess. It's ok that you disagree with me. But the arguments that I'm "negative" and that I'm "not the best person" are completely moot. When WWE decides to put something watchable on the air, I'll praise it -- and I have. When they don't, they get punched in the gut.

    That's life.

    ReplyDelete
  57. We're on the West Coast. I don't think we get the show until 8 PM. At least that's what our DVR says.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Like I said, I didn't agree that you shouldn't be reviewing this stuff, I was just clarifying that he didn't say you should be accepting.


    I agree it was a hot mess, but I found it a somewhat entertaining hot mess. If they can clean up the mess over the next few weeks (which, fortunately, the show is partially live, so they can actually make changes as they go), they might actually have something decent.


    It doesn't deserve unmitigated praise, but I thought it had some fun moments... I'll admit that I geeked out a little at Jason Jordan showing up just to demonstrate something, and I'm more interested in the coaches right now than any of the competitors, but that can change. I can say that I'll continue watching for now, and I don't have to strap myself down and grit my teeth to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  59. That's weird that they'd run it live up here and not wherever you are.


    Not that it matters much since, you know, five in the afternoon is too early because a lot of us aren't home yet.
