Raw 3 Hours vs. Impact Live!!

Rating: 5 votes, 2.00 average.
Hey guys Knox here hoping all is well with you folks. I just wanna talk about some things I'd like to see from both WWE & TNA heading into these very groundbreaking changes from both companies. Alot to be happy about but also alot to be worried about as wrestling fans.

TNA Impact Going Live:
This can be huge, I feel if we weigh out the changes on both Raw & Impact, Impact might have the edge but how do they keep it? I'll give you my insight.

1. New Stars Being Pushed
We need to get some fresh bones a bit of air time. Not necessarily all new stars, but guys that are new and guys that aren't so new but lacking television time. That's what I'd love to see. Names like The Pope, Austin Aries, King Mo, Chris Sabin and one of my favorite's, Shannon Moore. Just to add in the true wrestling quality to the show.

2. Exploit Your Advantage: Match Quality
What I mean by this is TNA might not have the best quality, but they have the best wrestling. TNA has better wrestling matches than the WWE. Its no way to put it. WWE has the potential to exploit an advantage but they fail to showcase their true talent.

TNA has to let this X-Division shine their asses off and people will tune in in droves. Let Chris Sabin, Eric Young and others do what they do best and put on quality matches.

3. Transition AJ Styles as the Top Guy Again
I think this is when TNA was at their best back from 2004-08' when AJ was the guy. I think fans are much more comfortable watching AJ hold that fort down as the man. AJ should be the John Cena of TNA. I love Kurt Angle, RVD, Ken Anderson & Jeff Hardy but we need a true TNA original carrying that company.

The reason WCW didn't bode well with me is because they took a guy (Hogan) that made himself a household name in the WWE and turned him into the face of WCW. They had an opportunity to really put the company in the hands of Sting, The Giant or even Jericho but they went with Hogan and even though he was a heel, I felt like I seen it all before.

TNA has to do this right and put the company in the hands of AJ. That is his damn company without a doubt. Make it happen.

4. Don't let Hogan control the booking
Now I don't wanna just up and say fire Hogan & Bischoff because that would be a waste of time because it won't happen. Dixie needs to get control of her damn company and somehow grow a set of balls. If Hogan does his typical stable booking and old rehashed crap, TNA will be out of business in the next calendar year.

Truly let guys like Jeff Jarrett & Dixie be more hands on with the control. Its like how Vince is the man in the WWE. He lets Triple H & Stephanie make some decisions but at the end of the day Vince has to approve it. They need a chain of command like that in TNA.

5. Televise more often in countries like England, Japan and such
We want to see TNA on the road more now that their live. I know it would be hard to go live from Japan but none the less I'd like to see Impact go on the road more period for televised shows. I'd love that.

I'm sick of seeing the same faces in the Impact Zone every week because literally the same guys show up. Lol the guy usually in the 100s on the television side that looks like Mick Foley. The three young sexy ladies that sit in the front row right by the ring steps that cheer all the babyfaces. I think its a black chick and two white chicks. Basically I know these Orlando Impact fans faces. They need to go on the road.

Also when they went to England and Japan, the numbers were huge as far as the turnout. I believe when they went to Japan back in 07' they had around 30,000 in that building and we all seen how well they did in England. They need to exploit this more often.

6. Keep the Knockouts Television Time
PLEASE PLEASE don't drop their time in half because they are the most successful and top entity TNA has going for them. They draw huge. I love everyone of the Knockouts dearly except for Gail Kim. I love these women so much and they all are amazing wrestlers mixed with the perfect combo of beauty. I love these ladies.



Raw 3 Hours:
Groundbreaking, yes. Risky, hell yes. So many opportunities for WWE to do something big but how well will they do. Let me tell a quick story to you guys.

I watch WWE all the time by myself and it doesn't seem as corny. My bestfriend, which is female. We do almost everything together, I see her practically every day, and we always end the night in my basement till about 3am.

Well we were cuddling watching television on a Friday night just coming home from dinner. I grabbed the remote and said I gotta check my DVR and skim through Smackdown. She doesn't like wrestling, never been a fan but loves the Rock.

We sped through it together and I was embarrassed to say I was a fan. We laughed and shook out head at everything and it bugged me. I mean the Santino & Ricardo segment forced me to just cut the damn DVR off.

With that being said, imagine what Raw would do in 3 hours with the corniness? I'll give my intake on how to fix this before its broken.

1. The New Breed
Dean Ambrose, Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes, Wade Barrett (IR), Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston (Heel). WWE has some bright guys to showcase, lets do this and try to transition these guys as the television hoggers of the Raw. They now have the time to do this.

2. Longer Divas Matches
Pretty much the obvious route. Lets give them an opportunity to be taken serious. I can't blame the divas for their downfall, its the WWE who dropped the ball. Chicks live Trish, Lita, Victoria, McCool, Melina and Mickie James were huge names because they were putting on stellar matches with decent time slots.

We can't fall in love with a diva when she only wrestlers for 2 minutes and your not even guaranteed to see your favorite diva every week. Give them about 8 minutes to wrestler every week, that would work.

3. Tell me a Story Damnit
Use this time to really brush up on some angles. Really give me that super huge story that leaves us on the edge of our heats. Maybe even the Cena heel turn? don't know but something huge that makes us wanna watch the entire 3 hours.

Even though the Nexus angle was completely ruined, but when they debuted, I mean that was just sick and amazing. It rocked the wrestling world. I couldn't wait till next Monday. They had a cool run but it was so damn different.

4. CRUISERWEIGHTS
Tyson Kid, Justin Gabriel, Evan Bourne, Sin Cara, Hunico, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, JTG, Primo, Trent Baretta, I can go on for days. With the extra try to incorporate them in the show, give me one huge CW match a week.


Who has the edge?
Impact going live. I think they have a big opportunity to make an impression without worrying about leaks and the ratings will certainly increase because I'm pretty sure there are thousands of people who read the spoilers and decide not to watch. Now its either watch it or DVR it so it will be huge.

I love the WWE but I just don't see them taking advantage of this. I for one don't think its a good idea. I can barely make it through two hours. It was a time when it would take forever to get to Monday because Raw was so good. Its like everyday you wake up and your like, "Damn I wish it was Monday". Now these weeks go by so fast because the product just isn't as good. It was a time when Raw was so good, you would think about the episode every single day until the next. They have to get back to that.


Conclusion
Hope you all enjoyed and I thank you all for reading. Appreciate you guys and please leave feedback. Thanks and be safe. Until then.

    Let me be honest with ya guys. I'm sick and tired of AJ keeping Daniels job. If not for AJ....he wouldn't have a job in TNA today. I'm sick of AJ given the crap.

    Great blog as always man, the only thing that I'd question is all the people you listed as "the future of WWE" are heels, interesting to see which faces will go up against them.

    Enjoyed the read Knox. I'm going to have to agree with B-ri. All of the names you listed were in fact heels. As for the faces they choose to match up against them, shall be interesting. More FCW talent on the rise? Perhaps... Yet as you've stated,what with TNA going live, I've got that gut feeling they may have the edge in this one. Wether or not they hold onto it is another story.

    Enjoyed the read. Keep em' coming bro.

    Proudfather222 ; Before you start criticizing other peoples' blogs/opinions, drop a blog of your own. Your profile has zero entries whatsoever. Knox has written a considerable amount of blogs, in fact IMO he's one of the top bloggers on this site. That being said, if you don't like, than don't read.

    **They had anopportunity to really put the company in the hands of Sting, The Giant or even Jericho but they went with Hogan and even though he was a heel, I felt like I seen it all before.**

    Didn't you recently announce that you were celebrating your 21st Birthday? That would make you, 5 years old when the Hogan NWO Heel Turn went down.

    Just an observation. Pretty Good Blog. I like the topic and would like to see more elaboration on it. Maybe I'll do that later this week.

    [QUOTE=knox;bt61158][B]@Proudfather222[/B], this isn't a history lesson, I'm not here to educate, I'm not a wrestling teacher or anything. 90% of you guys probably know more about wrestling than me any day of the week. I simply blog on topics and add an opinion. The product is in your face every Monday, Thursday & Friday night, learn something yourself.

    As for being a true fan I still am. I'm embarrassed at what Smackdown has become but I still tune in so that makes me a true fan. Hell, I'm the biggest Vikings fan I know, they completely suck but I still order their package so I can watch all their games. Does that not make a true fan just because I am critical of my team or the WWE? If anything, I care enough to share my opinions and offer advice.

    And I'm not forcing you to read my blogs, its your decision. Maybe I'll put "Knox" before the title of all my blogs from now on so you'll save your time by not clicking and reading. Good day sir.

    #Lowki & Cynicism, yea I thought it was Shelley as well, I heard he's in contact with the WWE. I hope Chris Sabin joins him.

    [B]@Bartish[/B], thanks for the kind words and yes I agree with what your saying. I wish I would've remembered to mention the Tag Team division. They definitely need help. I think its finally time to do something serious with the Uso's.

    [B]@ComingtoCinemas[/B], I agree with that, definitely. As far as match quality in TNA, they have the better match quality but its a damn shame that every mainevent match has to end in some sort of interference, its so played out and it cheats the fans out of their experience and money when its overdone week after week.

    Also TNA lacks true star power that would make you say match of the year. I feel like a triple threat between AJ Styles, Kurt Angle and Christopher Daniels on the right stage could be a match of the year if given the time slot. Those are 3 of the best wrestlers I've ever seen. Good comment though, appreciate you bro.

    [B]@ToiletBowl[/B], well I think it gives them a chance to make big moves as far as shock factor. They can have big returns and such and just do more surprises by going live. I think it'll benefit if done right.[/QUOTE]



    You already know we would all appreciate if you put knox in the title of your "blogs" because we are tired of wasting our time. Please don't blame me for calling you out on the horrible blog. Beyond all this again not a true fan if you are ashamed to watch the product in front of your boyfriend. GOOD DAY SIR!

    Wow great advice!!! I guess I could write about the obvious and state my opinion or I could laugh at you guys for acting like you know what your talking about. You are so smart man, I simply told Knox his current blog wasn't up to par compared to his previous ones with the exception of stereotypes in wrestling that one seemed as if he was mad about African Americans not getting pushed and I thought it was badly written and didn't enjoy the crying. Anyways thanks for the advice and allow me to give you some... Nevermind not worth it.

    @Proudfather, that's the issue man. So many people wanna call people out and be disrespectful over the internet but for what reason? You could've easily said you didn't agree with my opinions but why throw in the "Gay" remarks and crap like that. Its people like you that give wrestling fans a bad name but yet you wanna run me down and say I'm not a real fan.

    I wouldn't have over 130 blogs on this site if I wasn't a real fan my friend. Why do I even waste my time replying to marks like yourself. TA-TA FOR NOW.

    @B-ri, thanks for the comment bro appreciate you, hope everything is well in life. But yea man they just happen to be heels lol. I don't know how it will work out but i love those guys. Maybe if DB goes face lol idk.

    @PhEonYx, I truly do appreciate you my friend. And thanks for having my back. I don't trip over haters especially over the internet. I don't come to this site for drama or to experience a soap opera like program. I come to shoot the shit with all you guys about wrestling. Thanks again man I really do appreciate it.

    @DK Wrestling Savior, lol yea your right. Its just a whole history factor. When I was 5 my uncle got me into wrestling. He had every Wrestlemania tape and would show them to me so I knew who Hogan, Savage and all those guys were before I was actually fully hooked on wrestling.

    But yeah thanks for the comment bro. And I'll be looking forward to your blog. I think its a good time to be a wrestling fan as long as both companies don't drop the ball.

    @TheGreatOne, man tell me about it. AJ is the reason I watch TNA.
