Are Creatives in TNA on the Same Page?

While watching TNA last Thursday, I had a lot more questions than answers after Lockdown. I have no idea what the direction of the company is especially with their champions. I'll see if someone can answer some of these questions for me especially the title question which I'll start with. What questions did I ask myself after Impact?
1.Is everyone in TNA on the same page? AJ Styles complaining about his time on Impact weeks ago on his twitter. This week on Impact after Knockouts match, Brooke pinned Gail Kim. What happened? Brooke, Mickie, and Tara were in the background with Velvet up front in the camera. Is Velvet getting another shot? I thought Brooke may be on the verge after that pinfall, but you didn't have her on the screen. I like Velvet and wanted her to get the title back at Lockdown, but she lost. I prefer Velvet over Brooke, but Brooke got the pin. She should be the one in the spotlight celebrating the victory. Not Velvet and her team left without her. Is everyone on the same page in TNA?
2.How is Abyss going to return? Been about 2 months since the brother of Abyss has been searching for him and now he has progress? Gunner told him his last match was with Bully Ray. Wouldn't that be the first person you would question? How is Abyss and his brother going to meet? They can't meet in the ring because Abyss is his brother. I guess they could have one in the ring with a pretaped promo by the other. It just seems a bit foolish for him to take this long to question Bully Ray.
3.Daniels/Kaz/AJ storyline continues?-I thought the fued was over, but it seems like they keep adding more to the story to keep it going for god knows why. How many times is Daniels going to face AJ? This is the only way he can keep his job because they have no idea how to use him besides that. I want Kaz/Daniels to compete for the tag titles vs Joe/Magnus possibly at Slammiversary. Hopefully it happens cuz I'm a bit tired of the AJ/Kaz/Daniels storyline. Storylines with the same guys in the same matches is boring after at most 4 months I'd say for a storyline. End it and move on because I'm sick of hearing the story because I don't care what is in the envolope.
4.Bischoff censoring?-When a wrestler said Bischoff they kept censoring that out. I kept wondering why, but I remembered why....Bischoff name was the stipulation at Lockdown. Why add that? Censoring is annoying and they are going to say his name how many times next week for his sendoff? Why keep adding stipulations in storylines? Why not make it simple instead of foolish? If Bischoff loses he leaves....it should be that simple. You don't need to keep adding cherry's on top if you get what I'm saying. I'm glad the Bischoff storyline is over....only positive about this. I hope Flair and Gunner don't continue to fued with Garett.....plz don't spoil me with the garbage. I beg of you....
5.Opening segment to Impact-In case you missed it, Jeff Hardy and Kennedy wanted a shot at the world title. They were put in a singles match to decide who faces Roode, but RVD was randomly added in a backstage segment with Hogan. Why not have RVD come out in the opening segment rather than do that stupid backstage segment? Why is Jeff getting another oppurtunity to get an oppurtunity? How many title shots can you have in TNA. He faces Roode several times before Victory Road. I'd prefer to keep it fresh....not make Roode face the same guys. RVD did win to face Roode at Sacrifice. For anyone who read my blog on Roode's title reign...I had Roode vs RVD for the main event. TNA may be taking notes from my blog. Hope to goodness RVD don't beat him. Rather see a guy like Crimson beat him for the title who hasn't had a title run. Not the same old guys....I'd prefer Crimson's streak vs Roode's title at Bound For Glory this year. what else would be bigger than that? Nothing!!
6.MCMG lose on their comeback? It makes absolutely no sense for them to lose that momentum they had upon their return. I thought when Alex Shelley was fueding with Aries that Sabin would be the one to dethrone him of the X-Division title because of that tease. It didn't happen for god knows what reason. Who's left for Aries to face? Why put them in a tag title match vs the tag champs and lose?
7.Constant teasing of title change, and no trigger pulled-I felt like Roode was going to take the title off of Roode at Lockdown, but it didn't happen. It is probably because he is hurt. Velvet Sky's joke reign that we were ready to see her on top. Gets a shot at Lockdown not letting the pigeons loose til after the fued. She lost again to Gail Kim. Who's left for her to face? I don't want Brooke to be champion. Why do you still have KO tag titles? I want Sarita or Velvet to have a reign as KO champion. It gets to a point where, you have nothing left for Gail Kim to accomplish because she has faced virtually everybody. What ever happened to Karen vs Velvet storyline? I was wanting them to face at some point, but it never occured because Kurt beat Jarrett to take them both off of TV.
8.Why is Zema Ion not the X-Division champ? The guy who injured Jesse Sorrenson and received major heat for it has not really been on TV. Why is that? I thought they would have been smart enough to capitalize on this oppurtunity to give him the X-Division title and face Sorrenson when he returns. Ion beat everyone til Sorrenson returns when no one is left for him to face. What a waste of what could have been a good story. The heat is no longer there after him losing to Aries after I thought he would get the belt. Who is left for Aries to face?
9.Fight Night every month? I'm not a fan of UFC and have no idea why wrestling that they pushed in our face constantly matters, but no state of the word in the Fight Night. I have a hard time grasping the concept. 1 Impact a month, we will have a show where a no body can challenge any champion for their belts. If Hogan and 3 judges are impressed....they may receive a contract. Wait, TV title will also be defended every week. Why is Devon the champ anyways? I think this concept is the only way to use up all the dates in his contract because they don't know how to use Devon. That is my best guess here. Anderson later in the show says he will challenge the world champ on Fight Night. Is it for TNA contracted wrestlers as well?
I'm puzzled by a lot of things in TNA. Is everyone on the same page? What is Fight Night? For no name wrestlers to battle champs surely will get ratings I suppose. Why doesn't TNA pull the trigger? Why did MCMG lose so soon? Zema Ion not X-Division champ? Why keep adding cherry's on top? How is Abyss going to return? When is Daniels/Kaz/AJ storyline going to end?
