Where To Go With The Feuds and Angles in TNA

Hey everyone. DK Wrestling Savior with a special post regarding the state of TNA’s storylines. Now what I plan on doing here, is throw out ideas about where I’d like to see some of the current storylines go, as well as some other ideas that I had about some feuds and angles.
I thought about this after last week’s Impact. I’ve noticed that TNA tends to spend time building something one week, then abandon it the next in lieu of trying to build something else. The problem is, with so little time between PPV’s, there’s little time to properly build really good feuds. So, I’m just gonna throw somethings out there. Let me know what you think.
Joey Ryan and Al Snow
I’m sure this will be a match at BFG. However, I still think Al Snow should be behind Joey Ryan getting in. It would make perfect sense since Snow voted yes for him. So they should do something like have Ryan con Pritchard into guaranteeing him a contract if he beats Snow. Once it’s signed, then have Snow let him win. Not with a finger poke of doom though, as someone suggested a few weeks ago. I don’t want Joey Ryan to lose credibility. And once this goes down, he should get regular TV Time. And please, don’t make him a whiner. Let him stick with his, “Joey Ryan is money and you don’t leave money on the table”. Snow and Ryan should pair up though.
Tara and the Knockouts Division
We saw Tara go evil and attack Tessmacher last week. They will have a match at BFG and it’s a match where Tara should win convincingly. From here, they should push Tara as the dominant Knockout and using the Widow’s Peak in an angle where it’s an injury causing move. Make her down right vicious and evil. Have her just walk through the Knockouts division, destroying everyone.Then, have her win an epic match with either Gail or Mickey…and follow that up with the return of Awesome Kong. Where it goes from there is up to the imagination. But they should push Tara as a destroyer, and go early WWE Victoria-like crazy and unstable. Hell, even license the song she had, “All the things she said”. Go all out disturbing with her.
Kaz & Daniels & The Tag Team Division
Okay, obviously they need more tag teams. I like Chavo & Hernandez, for now. Hernandez is gonna need to go off on his own eventually. Also, Aces & Eights should have a tag team once that plays out and they are consistently on TV, if it happens. But there's not much after that. I mean, just pairing up people like AJ & Angle, or Gunner & Kash, isn't really getting it done. So, right around the time Sabin is ready to come back, I'd sign Shelley back and bring the Motor City Machine Guns back. In the meantime, keep the titles on Daniels & Kaz until then, and maybe do a gut check episode for a tag team, and start building it from the ground up.
Zema, Kenny King, and the X Division
Okay, after Destination X, the X Division, with its great tournament and everything, has become an after thought once again. I don't want to see it be forgotten for months, and then leading up to Dest X, suddenly it has meaning because the champ can cash it in for a World Title shot. I think it needs relevance year round. So, my storyline idea is this. Obviously, they're already going with Zema injuring people until Jesse Sorenstrom returns. It's a good concept. But then beyond that, they need to treat it like the old Cruiserweights of WCW. Showcase matches with these guys and their high flying abilities. Have a tag match or a 6 man tag match on every episode of Impact. On OFN, have an X Division Title Match standard. Bring in some new young guys, or even some popular names from days before, and spark that interest again.
Aces & Eights Members and Leader
I think the biggest question, other than who’s behind the group, is what are they going to do once it’s revealed who they are? First, I hope they avoid becoming another Immortal. Instead, they should try going NWO, but without ripping it off. I actually had a vision about Aces & Eights before it started. However, I had a different idea of them. I had this idea where a heel faction invades TNA in masks, but not like they are now. Rather, I had them in masks that resembled the movie Strangers. But, that’s just me. Anyway, here are some ideas for after BFG.
First, BFG should be where they conquer Hogan. This will open the door to run rampant all over TNA.
Next, they should play off an angle where they eliminated Devon and confiscated the TV Title. If Devon is not coming back, they should write him off. It would make sense since I’m almost 98% positive Bully Ray is in on it.
After that, they should target everyone, and create disturbing segments. Attack the commentators. Even have a segment where they torment and take Christy Hemme prisoner. I had an idea where two of the guys came out, intimidated her, revealed her first ever rival, Carmella, as a member, and have her take over the announcing duties while Christy is involved in several “feel bad for her” segments over the course of several weeks. Things like making her have smeared and sloppy make up and looking like crap with messy hair and all. Just basically torturing her without showing violence to women. Then someone obviously rescues her, etc.
They should continue to target Aries, but not limit it to just him. They should have one episode where it’s just pure chaos. People are worried while they’re wrestling their matches and Aces & Eights storm the ring randomly, like in a X Division match or something. It would establish them as a group who targets everyone, not just the good guys. They should also have a segment that mimics the episode of Nitro where Outsiders destroyed people with baseball bats in the backstage area. Though, don’t do what Nitro did, which was waste an entire episode showing people getting loaded into ambulances.
Okay, now who should be in it? Who should these guys be? I think it’s clear Bully Ray will be involved. I also think Matt Morgan, John Morrison, and Chris Masters will be members. I''m pretty sure Luke Gallows is already a member. And finally, I personally think Crimson will be involved as well. And while I love Bully Ray as a top 3 heel in wrestling today, I don’t know if I like the idea of him as the leader. A main member, sure, but not the leader. As for the leader, I hope I’m right in that it will be the Third Face of Park. However, and this cannot be overstated enough. Keep Jarrett and Bischoff away from Aces & Eights. Don’t destroy this great thing you’ve created over the past few months. Now, there are several things I’d like to see out of Aces & Eights, once the great reveal is done and over with…which should be at BFG.
Less Hogan, More Wrestlers
Again, I’m stating the obvious here, but hopefully, with Aces & Eights conquering Hogan, we won’t be stuck with 4 or 5 segments a week with Hogan in it. That time can be used to build feuds like Joe and Magnus. Or have matches where guys get tv and wrestling time, and show where they can be moving up the ranks for titles. Especially in the X Division.
Well, these are some ideas I had while I wait in anticipation for Thursday to come. Please, let me know some of your ideas as well as what you think of mine.
Thanks for reading everyone. Be Safe.
