TNA: Pros and Cons

Im sure many of us will agree that the WWE's lackluster performance (with a few bright spots) is partially due to the lack of competition in the wrestling industry. TNA is the only company I can see, at this point, giving WWE the much needed kick in the rear. But before they can become wrestling royalty, they need recognize their strengths and weaknesses and deal with them.
1.) TNA is currently catering to a market abandoned by the WWE. And that's adult wrestling fans looking for hardcore action. Hardcore brawls is one of the things that WWE can no longer deliver due too its PG rating. TNA has realized this and capitalized on it.
2.) Great talent. TNA has some of the greatest potential within its grasp. For instance: The Pope, Mr. Anderson, MCMG, Beer Money, and of course AJ Styles. These guys are the future of pro wrestling.
3.) A decent women's division. The TNA Knockouts are easy on the eyes, yet tough in the ring. Unlike some of WWE's divas, the ladies can actually wrestle. But TNA has got to keep an eye on the Knockout division because I think im starting to see signs of slippage.
1.) Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. They've Dixie Carter, Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, and Jeff Jarett (not really sure what his role is anymore). And the worst part is....they are all faces!!! Where is the controversy? Isn't that what Bischoff is known for?
2.) Buried X-division. The x-division is what brought TNA to the dance and now their changing partners! It seems like its being buried under the Heavywieght and TV title...I can't even recall the last X-division match I saw.
3.) Six-Sided Ring? Where did it go. Another thing that set it apart from the competition. I heard that some said it was difficult to work in but I saw an interview where Booker T said it was just too small. Bring it back and make it bigger!!!!
4.) Crumbling Foundation. Its seems that Tna is building their company around the older wrestlers and trying to model themselves after dead companies. HELLLO!!! There dead for a reason!!! Quit looking to the past. Those days are long gone.
5.) Storylines. I don't know if it is just me, but most of TNA's storylines seem to have no point or no definable end. For instance, Hernandez and Morgan. I can't remeber how it ended? Im sure there are more but I don't remember any of them because they weren't worth remembering.
What do you all think? Im a blowing smoke or are these things TNA should really look into?
