The question I put forward to you today: Why did you start to watch Tna?
I watched it on and off but it was when the Instant Classic Christian Cage debuted did I start to watch it full time. Presently I hate the Tna product its a clusterfuck show, I'm jus sayin...

Question about TNA in WWE thread?

My reason is back then I read somewhere about Jeff Jarrett create a promotion call TNA in Nashville,watch it on starworld channel early 2003 and I'm impressed with what X division shown,the moves I never seen before...I remember wow'ed by Low Ki's Ki krusher and Dragon clutch,along the way I've become a fan of Jerry Lynn,Low Ki,AJ,Amazing Red and Maximos,Kazarian,Sabin and Daniels...dislike Michael Shane though with the fans doing the stupid dance.

I followed it, through magazines, from day one. A few months after it's inception I procured the first 10 episodes on VHS, and I've been watching it ever since! Not the greatest promotion and full of ups and downs, mostly downs, but there have been enough ups to keep my interest piqued.... Well, at least there use to be plenty of ups, but these days it's going down faster than a drunk Kelly Kelly on a first date!

I started watching it when 3 live cru?(or whatever they were called were dominating the iMPACT! zone with Team Canada that had Robert Roode as one of the members. I was crazy about it. The night it would come on, which I think it was Saturday or Sunday, I made sure that I never missed an episode. It. Was. Just. That. Entertaining. I was a huge fan of Abyss, Christofer Daniels, and all of the other X-Division guys an even the KO's! It was a breath of fresh air. TNA just seemed really great when Jim Cornette was there. I am not sure if he played a creative hand though. He could have.

I been a fan since day one follwing it on the Internet, and through the magaizines.... The classic NWA title, NWA tag title, and X division matches that made TNA famous.....
Ultimate X, AJ Styles and Abyss falls cout anywhere, Six sides of Steel, the 1st TNA cage match Triple Ladder match and so much more....
Besides it the best alternative with the greatest chances to succed on TV on to be number 2 wrestling company in the world!!!! With some of the greatest stars to grace the TNA ring!!!!!

I started watching TNA 3 years ago

I was flicking through the channels and saw their Bound for Glory PPV on TV and since then, i've been hooked.

Never really watched wrestling before then.

It just a era TNA is going through!!!!!
One thing people think Hogan got creative control!!!!!! When he only got creative control only for his character.... All Hogan has and was meant to be was talent enhancement for TNA, to gain media, and national exposure....
Do I think he done that yes.... but one thing people forgets Hogans TNA contract runs out at the end of this year!!!!
Thus let me make the prediction for Bound for Glory Hogan vs Sting Loser leave TNA/Retirement match!!!!!

As for Flair he adds to the list of great wrestlers who have wrestled or appeared in TNA.....

So to answer how do i feel about TNA.... it just going through an era, as all wrestling companies has or had in the past and will in the future!!!!

I started watching TNA here and there when they got a tv deal with Spike, every now and then over the past few years I tune in to see if its gotten half decent..so far not..but one day I hope to watch an episode from start to to finish and be able to say "that wasn't so bad"

well the way that i discovered tna was when kurt went to tna and tna had commercials during wwe programing advertising how samoa joe was undefeated and he was going to face kurt, but i didnt watch tna untill last year and i dont watch tna anymore because from last year to this year tna has suck however i do know why people like tna and its mostly because of 2005 and 2006

2004 when they had Team Canada. I liked the Ultimate X, King of the mountain, X-division and the X-Cup! That cup used to be awesome, one thing i actually used to look forward to in TNA. It was just great seeing people like Puma, Shocker, Jushin liger (who i always liekd back in WCW), Incognito (who is in FCW now). It was just a faster, more wrestling based company and they used crazier moves than WWE; Canadian destroyer is an example.
Now TNA is meh. It's just lost that charm now it's trying to use WCW/WWE style storylines rather than taking advantage of the things that made them unique and gained them a fanbase to begin with.

I remember that match. That was when they had the weekly pay per views. Pretty sure they didn't start naming shows till late 2004/early 2005

there wasn't it started only in 2005, and that was at TNA's Second Anniversary Show during its weekly PPVs the real PPVs we know now started on November 7, 2004, when TNA aired Victory Road 2004.
