Here is my first blog and i hope yall take the time to read it and at least like it.
I'm a wrestling fan since I was 4 and been a fan of wcw and wwf since the early 90's so I've seen it all. I also a fan of TNA as well as ROH and WWE so here is my take on TNA
I read a lot about rebuilding TNA but they really don't have to fire / hire people, they can actually use them CORRECTLY. let me say it again USE THEM CORRECTLY.
First Impact Show
Hire another commentator, someone that actually talks about wrestling and leave them with tazz. Mike Tenay is'nt cutting it, but he would be better as a backstage interviewer.
Hulk Hogan should not be in the ring at all times or storylines focused on him, but he should work more with Jason Hervey and do more sticoms, guest apperances, tv shows, and movies. And when they do interview him, he gets PAID by TNA when he mentions TNA and Spike TV in the interviews...why? to attract viewers. And oh yeah, he shouldn't be anything related to creative at all. We all know why...
Eric Bischoff should call Scott Steiner immedately and work something out. This could be potentailly be the biggest storyline in TNA history if they can work out something alas CM Punk and HHH. This will garner more attention and apparently Steiner does have pull with the fans as well. Steiner could be brought back in as GM of IMpact. He can torture bischoff and his son in matches to the fans avail.
Several Wrestlers will need new Gimmicks in order to garner more attention in TNA and keep viewers and fans tuned in as well.
I can only think of a few but I know more are needed to make the show more colorful instead of bland.
Rob Van Dam, Somoa Joe, Magnus, matt morgan, crimson, gunner, etc
Thye need to be revamped and given a better gimmick, maybe help merchandise sales with new tna merchanise for the fans.
Storylines, Storylines, Storylines. They got some good ones and mostly bad ones. The bad ones aren't really that bad, but they put the wrestlers in those storylines that shouldn't be in there and should be used on someone else. Imagine if Austin Aries was the one being trained by Hogan and bischoff is mad because he wanted his son to be trained by Hogan, then get the picture, Aries and Bischoffs son can get some matches out there but I know Aries will win them because he is the professional. and then that could lead him to the world title and him with a storyline with bully ray.
Knockouts are the heart of the show. Who doesn't like seeing gorgeous woman wrestle? I think they should have edger story lines such as sleeping with a certain wrestler that isn't Eric Young, and maybe even having some epic matches like taylor wild and daffney had back in the day. Micky james needs to change her country style gimmick and do something different to keep her revelant.
OUtside sports/tv influence. What they did with Brandon Jacobs was good but too early to finish. He should have been involved in a longer storyline and even brought in Eli to watch his back. Imagine if TNA could get Tim Tebow to walk down the ramp, look around, say nothing and then leave. People would go ape s*it for that. TNA nees to look for other avenues because they need newer fans, they need more of a fanbase to help them grow more as a company.
Spike Tv needs to push more TNA wrestling on that channel? Why? Because they are slowly dieing as a channel. There ratings are horrible compared to other channels but the one show that is consistant is impact wrestling. I believe the second show should be sponsered and Paid for by Spike Tv and help TNA with finances and they will both reap the rewards. Imagine a company like TNA able to not only break even, but to have more than enough money profitted? Better paid wrestlers, better venues for the show, better experiences for the fans. Spike needs to start this immedately. And this show should be for the younger greener wrestlers to wrestle there and make a name for themselves. Storylines can be pushed here as well as bringing in some Impact wrestlers there as well.
That is my blog, hope yall like it, its a lot of stuff and its been rolling around in my head.
