The corporate line that WWE employees always use is that they do not pay attention to TNA. If that is true why did they bring Bret Hart back on the exact night Hogan debuted? Why did raw have a battle royal tonight in the exact week that TNA has one scheduled? It's because they do watch TNA and are trying to make sure they make no headway.

lol wwe doesnt need to worry about tna and just cause they have a battle royal doesnt mean anything this isnt the first time they did this it was the best way to extend the cena/nexus storyline

I think WWE pays attention to TNA. I'm sure many of the wrestlers watch TNA Impact if they have time, and I'm sure they keep their eye open for any impressive talent within TNA. That being said, I don't think they are particularly worried about TNA. TNA could not compete with WWE on Monday nights, and they don't pull anything close to their ratings or merchandise sales.

If WWE watches TNA, it's not out of concern - they're probably just taking ideas.. let's face it, WWE needs some new ones. TNA is more credible, I think WWE wants that too. Butt it wont get credibility until they stop putting people over as superman. ffs

You've got to take into consideration how long it has been since WWE had a big battle royal. I don't think it was a coincidence.

Don't really think they are nor should be worried about TNA. My guess is that they just bite off TNA plans just to piss them off. I think TNA worries waaaaay too much about WWE. they try too much too be number one and right now, they are not even remotely in the position to take over. Hope they do better though, with Hogan and Flair still in the spotlight it decreases their chances.

There's truth here. I do think WWE likes to reinterpret ideas from TNA, but isn't TNA reinterpreting ideas from WCW? Like El Gabo here, I want TNA to do well - competition is only going to make something I love better.

And I ask ALL of you - if TNA was the only game in town, then logically, wouldn't they just be what WWE is now? Think carefully before you answer this because if you think TNA doesn't want to be wealthy, worldwide, successful and the top dog then why the hell do they bother? There is absolutely NO promotion in the world who isn't trying to make money - not to simply, "break even or run at a loss just to give those true wrestling fans what they want". You think that - you really are a mark

At this moment in time WWE is not worried about TNA. WWE would be lying if they were not at least impressed with how TNA is growing. TNA had the guts to take there product to the next level. TNA has a ways to go but its a pleasure to watch a company be born and grown before our eyes. Some senior members of WWE staff know that they were just like TNA in the beginning. And im sure some fans remember before Raw and Smackdown, we had WWF Supertars, WWF Challenge and WWF All American, all 1 hour shows and every other month or so we had Saturday Night Main Event. Its a growing process.

If the WWE wasnt concerned, they would have released Chris Jericho instead of giving him the time off he wanted. They are concerned, you see it every episode of raw and smackdown with their crappy "divas". No matter how you want to spin that, its a rip off of TNA. They have publicly stated they are angry about their own women wrestlers not competing on the level with TNA's women(which is sad cause TNA's girls cant wrestle very well either). A blind man can see that the WWE is going back to the old tactics of smearing the competition, like they way they did to WCW. Unfortunately it didnt work then and its only going to help TNA now. The WWE needs only to screw up with just one of their top draws, Orton, Cena, Jericho. If they lose just one of those guys to TNA, we get monday night wars back. And god be praised if that happens.

It's everybody's right to guess and speculate at what goes on behind the scenes ok? Is what you are saying that we should not talk about such things and we should just discuss the entertainment aspect? What gives you the right? Sure, "everybody" as you so generally put it might very well be totally off the mark, but so what? What the hell are these forums for if not to discuss these things?

Youve already replied twice, and I still dont see where Ive said anything that was a "guess" on my part. Everything I said is common knowlege that both companies have openly stated. Your just a troll.

They do and the case was proven when Vince made his in ring return during the debut of the live monday Impact Now they dont veiw them as a hugh threat bt Vince should be smart enought to seewhile TNA is not drawing big TV rating the house show outcomes ar pretty much the same between te two companies

WWE isn't concerned Vince is. Vince has alwasy been scared of competition, thats why he bought ECW and WCW. Of course he watches TNA, its not like it matters. WWE always crushes TNA in ratings.


P.S. TNA watches WWE too.

Most of the ratings things is about how long WWE ha been around WWE is the wrestling that in some form has been around since 1953 with CWC which turned into WWWF which would bring the fans from CWC into WWWF which Vince Sr. made into a profit making machine which turned into WWF which had its biggest years from 85-92 and then 98-01 profit wise which is what has carried over to WWE which people of all ages if they have watched wrestling they have watched some branch of WWE wrestling rether it be CWC,WWWF,WWF, or WWE the fans have been way more exposed to WWE. TNA is still a baby in wrestling years with only 8 so I'd say they are doing good with the lack of advertisment they do which is something they need to work on badly.

TNA in my opinion isn't good enough right now to be competition whether or not WWE see's them that way or not. As far as bringing in Bret to match Hogan, I think that was just vince saying anything you can do I can do better
