Just to make things clear I am rooting for tna to equal and then surpass wwe in tv ratings. WWE need a bloody good kick up the arse! I pray for TNA to eventually become the boot that does it.... But.... A promotion named TNA is going to have a hard time doing it. I'm not saying it's impossible but without wrestling in it's name it'll have a hard time gaining recognition with the casual audience. The name TNA is a gimmick in it's self and that for me, is where the problem starts.

Personally I like the name, but im a "hardcore" fan, a smark as the late Brian pillman so eloquently put it.

The first thing 999,999 out of 1,000000 "normal" people think of when they hear the initials tna dont think of TOTAL NON-STOP ACTION they think of TITS AND ARSE!!! (or ass, depending on your hometown). I dare you to go out and try it.

It's called TNA Wrestling. They have "Wrestling" in their name.

Please allow me to give my infinite wisdom on this matter. I don't give a f what they call their rasslin company as long as the product is logical and enjoyable to watch. Yes the majority of people think that TNAstands for tits and ass, whats wrong with that(velvet is one of the main reasons I watch TNA in the first place) Let the pigeons loose!!!!!!! But with my infinite wisdom I also know their are many things TNA stands for. Here is the list.
TnA Total Nonstop Action (wrestling alliance)
TNA The National Archives (UK)
TNA Training Needs Analysis
TNA Tamil National Alliance (Sri Lanka)
TNA Trigeminal Neuralgia Association
TNA Transitional National Assembly (Iraq)
TNA Texas Nurses Association
TNA To No Avail
TNA Total Net Assets

TNA: The Nut Association...that probably made my day, well besides the whole thing I read about rednecks, but ANYWAYS!

Well, the WWE does need a boot in the ass, but they have decades under their belt while TNA has about 8 years. And the WWE is world wide, they travel about everywhere, and TNA is mostly in the U.S and U.K, and pretty much stationed in Orlando. So, it's not just gonna happen over night, it could take years before TNA could be established as a rival directed towards the WWE in some peoples eyes.

To No Avail seems the most appropriate. You can never, never run a succesful promotion with the talent in charge. Their whole game is ego and it spills over without fail.

@creativewrestling: I know it's full name is tna "wrestling". But tna will always be it's "real" name and they will remain a second rate promotion as long as it has a name that makes people think of something other than "wrestling"

@iwizzdowntheplughole (or something like that).... Thank you.... Just thank you!

Its taking years for people to notice TNA, changing it could hurt them by having to market a whole new name to the world. I’m sure they don’t want to be known as the wrestling organization formally known as TNA.

There really isn't any chance of it happening, they probably should have changed it a long long time ago...

Nah, it's "real name" is Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. Wrestling is in the name. Nothing to see here..

TITS AND ASS WRESTLING could be a perfect name for a women's wrestling promotion. Self explanatory.

The name of the forum is Total Nonstop Action. Why is that? Is it because although it it has wresting at the end of the title the full name is just a little bit long winded. When talking to your friends do say "did you see TNA" or "did you see TNA wrestling". I know I rarely use the later. Which is why it's "real" (as in what most people call it) name is just plain old TNA. PLENTY to see here.... Most of all the point of this thread .May I recommend specsavers.

TNA (wrestling) is an innuendo at best. They could have WWEs entire roster and they still wouldn't overtake them with such a cheeky sounding name.

I agree it's not a great name, but they're definetly stuck with it it would seem. Mind you NWA became WCW and achieved more success than ever.
But Total Nonstop Action? Not with all the promos! Possibly Some Action Here & There?

WCW was Jim Crockett Promotions, an affiliate of the NWA yes, but not the NWA
