Leave the Memories Alone

Hi guys, me again. I know, 2 blogs in 2 days is a lot for me but I felt this was appropriate and I know this has been mentioned a thousand times but it's something I feel is particularly important in our industry that we love so much today. I just found this video on Youtube:
Now for anyone who can't be bothered watching the video (I don't blame you, it is quite painful) basically the video chronicles TNA from some of it's best moments up to mid 2009 and then the disparity of the past few years. Again I know many people have made blogs about TNA and Hogan and Bitchoff (Thanks Scotty!) but I want a chance to air my opinion. TNA today SUCKS.
It's just embarrassing. I mean quite literally. I used to love watching TNA on Bravo here in the UK. The X division was awesome, the tag teams, perfection & the main event scene was brilliance. The likes of Angle, Styles, Joe, Sting, Nash (who had his up and downs but as a part of the Mafia was brilliant), Booker T, Mick Foley, Jarrett(unfortunately) it worked fantastically. Fair enough, the upper card was a bit legends heavy however they were mostly there to build the company, put over younger guys and there was still a lot of tv time for the X division and the ACTUAL WRESTLERS.
We could spend all day reminiscing but anyway, on with the blog. The problems now are just ridiculous. Hogan and Bitchoff spending all day kissing each other's asses, Ric Flair (THE MAN) wrestling half naked, TNA basically advertising for WWE has beens (and I'm not talking about legends), it really makes me sad because TNA had so much potential and they are DESTROYING the company.
If you jump on Youtube, Scott Steiner actually did a shoot promo back in WCW saying very similar to what he has said in recent weeks and it's almost foreshadowing the problems TNA would have.
I want this to be an interactive blog so please, comment and tell me:
1) Your favourite TNA moment
2) What you think the issues TNA have are
3) Whether you agree or not
Thanks very much guys, I look forward to receiving any and all comments & any feedback at all is appreciated!
