Lately, I've noticed (and I am sure that many of you have noticed) that TNA is making a lot of pointless moves. Let's review some of them shall we.


What is the point of having Hulk Hogan involved involved in almost every angle/storyline? (i.e, Nash/Sting/Jarrett Storyline, EV2 Storyline) He has had more tv spots in one night than Vince McMahon all year.

What is the point of having Hulk Hogan overrule Dixie's suspension of Flair? Isn't she the President of TNA?

What is the point of bringing ECW wrestlers? It seems like they are just doing what they did in WWE. Which is job to that company's original talent.

What is the point of making Ric Flair and Fortune the ones whom Abyss refers to as "They"? Doesn't Flair have enough people in his stable. Abyss doesn't even fit. If they wanted to give Fortune a henchman, then they could have just used Matt Morgan. I thought he was supposed to be the "bodyguard" anyway.

What is the point of the EV2/Fortune fued if they are just going to beat the hell out of each other outside of the ring all the time and not have any real matches with one another.

What is the point of having Flair put Jay Lethal over when you aren't going to continue to push Lethal?

What is the point of having so many intersecting storylines Fortune/EV2/Nash,Sting,Jarrett? There is so much going on it's becoming a little hard to follow. I don't know who is mad at who or why.

So am I right or is this post just....pointless! If any of you have anymore pointless moves on TNA's part, feel free to post them.

Cornette is facepalming at TNA because of this. If TNA would forcefully remove RUSSO and add CORNETTE, none of this crap would happen!

Yeah, they need to get rid of Russo. And less air time for Hogan
I do not mind the ECW guys coming back, least they are better than when TNA brought in the Nasty Boys, Orlando Jordon, Bubba lovesponge, and Val Venis.
It is pointless that they took the title off of RVD, its pointless that they got rid of the 6 sided ring.
Only thing the are doing corrext(somewhat at least) is the womens division- though it was pointless that they let Gail Kim, Amazing Kong, Cheerleader Melissa(I forget the name she went by in TNA) and Roxxi.

Another pointless thing it looks like TNA is gonna do- looks like a stable based on Jersey Shore- or at least something based on Jersey Shore- wish is the worse piece of shit that is on TV

I agree with you on everything. I just finished watching iMPACT! not too long ago (like many other people) an I was left in confusion. I did not even know what the hell was going on. An they really ruined the Abyss angle. If they did (I was rarely paying attention during the segment I heard him on) infact do reveal that "they" is Fortune then why was it that earlier on Abyss attacked Fortune, and seemed to be backing up ECW? It makes no sense to me.

In agreement with most angle ideas but the act of following through is lacking. Hogan needs to pick which fight he wants to take on. Fourtune vs EV2 is good. Nash, Jarrett, Sting etc is a question mark. Tag teams are amazing with the match this past week with MCMG and Gen Me as the show stopper and the best of 5 being truely awesome. Big push, aside from RVD being the whole F`n show, needs to be the guy from Green Bay, Wisconsin. No need for Heyman, just keep Carter off air and keep Bischoff in control; he is more valuable than most think.

the point of taking the title off RVD was because they were running out of dates!! His contract only allows him to make so many appearances in a year, and TNA have to pay a huge amount of money for every extra date he appears on top of his contract. He's been on tv so much, they realized that they were running out of dates, and couldn't afford to pay the extra money for the extra dates, so they took him off tv for a while with the Abyss storyline. And that means they had to take the title off him, they couldn't have their heavyweight title off tv could they!!

alot of what tna does is pointless and never goes anywhere could blame russo for that because he rights them hogan being in every storyline is just boosting that ego he has even more if he is to be in any storyline should be the one with nash, sting and jarrett since its hm that sting wants i dont no what happened last night o impact ill find out tomorrow over here be good if they keep hogan out of the other storylines,

the storyline with abyss is bugging me alot just now i dont no if tna are just stalling for time to bring 'they' in since they dont no who they are themselves.

i dont no if the doug williams being the anti x division champ is getting over much not much talk about it cause the x divison has gone down hill alot same with the knockouts getting rid of the likes of kong, roxxi, and odb has hurt it alot

Okay, for one this guy above me has the worst grammar on this planet. Secondly what I find pointless about TNA that has not already been said is the womens tag titles. Get rid of those things for Christ sake. I almost forgot what they look like. And yes, getting Hogan away from every angle save for one would be the best thing to do. Dixie really needs to step in and speak up for her fans here on this one. We all understand that Hogan is really just taking the company because he can. I would get rid of him, keep Bischoff (which is unlikely to happen if Hogan goes), fire Russo, replace him with some up and coming writer with fresh ideas as opposed to sticking to the same guys for twenty years (Heyman, JR, Russo...) and maybe try to work out a deal with ROH where wrestlers could be traded between the two companies. I guarantee the X title would be utilized more and always in the radar of those ROH wrestlers. But none of this is likely o happen while Hogan and Bischoff run rampant over TNA. Oh yeah, and get rid of Matt Morgan too. He's the worst wrestler in today's business.

Ok I understand that RVD has a set amount of dates in his contract and needed to be taken off the air to keep from going over those dates. But why put the title on and "build the company around" (from Hogan's own words) someone who can't even compete on tv regularly? If this guy only can do, let's say, 100 dates, then why make him the centerpiece of your company. That honor should go to someone who could appear when needed.

*Maybe Hulk Hogan is involved in both storylines (ev2 and nash,jj,sting) because they will both interlink in the near future?

*Maybe Dixie and Hogan are having their differences and over-ruling each other as the future storyline revolves around the whole power struggle?

*Maybe we are just being led to believe that "THEY" are fortune like we were led to believe it was the ECW guys? (i sense a major twist here)

*The Fortune vs EV2 feud is barely 3 weeks old and we did see AJ vs Dreamer in a match, in the ring, last week.

*All the inter-linking storylines could get confusing to some, but its looking like it will be one of the most intricate and well thought out storys of all time (in the "crash", "babel" movies mold).

I think before people start bashing TNA for things that haven't even happened yet we should just watch and see how it all plays out, im sure we'll all find out around the 10th of october!!

Exactly. It was just a bad move from TNA.

Well if they got rid of dead weight like Hogan, Nash and Sting, they would have more money to keep RVD longer, lol.

Vince Russo, Eric Bischoff, Hulk Hogan, and Dixie Carter really screwed up TNA. I miss the Cornette days....

Well to sign Hogan and then not use him seems stupid. He isn't wrestling which is great and I admitt to be involved in every storyline is a bit much, but that's his job. He is joint owner or something, just forget the title. But he has to get involved. Having Hogan in TNA makes it look big time now.

There are many storylines going on right now, but we all need to be patient. So things may not have happened as we all thought, but that's a good thing. We don't want a WWE style show where we all know what will happen. TNA is great because they are adding some twists on their storylines.

I agree womens tag belts, bin them. There arn't enough female wrestlers, it seems like they all have a belt right now.

EV 2.0 is great, new faces, extreme.

They are using AJ and Somoa, not as you may like but they have not shelved them.

At the end of the day we are all internet wrestling fans, and we are so hard to pelase, we all think we can do better. You all have interesting points to make, but we need to let these storylines develop then we can critisie.
