The Stryke Zone: TNA vs WWE

Rate this Entry
Howdy people and welcome to the Stryke Zone. This is my first blog and I decided to take a swing and give my opinion on the everlong internet battle of TNA vs WWE.

First a quick run through at the big matches coming up in both companies.

TNA: Their Lockdown PPV is coming up and it's Jeffy Hardy vs Bully (Bubba) Ray for the World title.

Sting and his team will face the stable Aces and Eights, a rag tag biker like stable.

WWE: Wrestlemania is this month and it is The Rock vs John Cena for the WWE title.

CM Punk faces Undertaker to try and beat the streak.

Alberto Del Rio faces jack Swagger for the World Heavyweight title
.................................................. .................................................. .........

Okay I'll start with WWE first. Many people are complaining about this year's Wrestlemania. They understandably don't want to see John Cena beat the Rock for the WWE title. Now as a person who doesn't mind Cena I don't mind this. I thought it would have been better for Punk to stay champion till Wrestlemania and have Cena beat him, but I'm not on the writing team.

WWE has both very critical and very loyal fans. As does TNA, but WWE gets more scrutiny by the internet. Most times I see people start arguements with a comment like, WWE sucks balls, but never see them back up their arguments with good facts. As a life long fan of the WWE, 10+ years and counting, I'll admit I do miss the old days. I got into the wwe after the end of the invasion, so I got to see the "evolution" from that to ruthless agression, to the product on the tvs now.

I can say I don't mind what WWE puts on tv each week. I like to keep things simple when I watch. I boo heels, cheer faces. The main feuds interest me and make me want to get the ppvs, which i don't cause I'm poor...but that's not important right now. The Shield is the right step for the WWE. Many people were finally happy when Dean Amrbose and Seth Rollins got their call ups. Personally Ambrose annoys me to no end and I can't see how people like him, but he has a huge fan base.

The WWE is slowly starting to shift. It may not be obvious to some, but they are slowly but surely shifting to a new era. What that era is, we can't tell yet.
.................................................. .................................................. .........
Now TNA is a fairly young company. What started as a NWA associate like most companies, soon became a decent alternative to WWE. I used it to fill my week of wrestling since it airs on thursdays. What caught my eye was the six sided ring. Lucha libre style. It was unique and made me want to watch.

Also the talent was all young fresh face talents with a few vets thrown in to get some notice. It was mostly Kurt Angle, Team 3-D/Dudleys, and Ric Flair. Now they had other WWE talents come and go like Jeff Hardy before his WWE title run and R-Truth before he became R-truth and went by K-Kwik.

But it was the young talent that kept you. They were fresh and exciting. AJ Styles was becoming their ace in the hole. Their John Cena if you will. ANd by that I mean their biggest money maker. Their tag team division was good with Beer Money inc and Motor City Machineguns. You had Abyss the monster and man X-Divison superstars. I was hooked.

But then slowly, TNA came up with this idea of bringing in every thrown out WWE superstar in hopes of saying "Hey that mid carder you like? We're making him world champion! CHECK US OUT!" It was a cry for attention in my opinion. Then they decided to bring in a bunch of older wrestlers. Kevin Nash, Booker T, Rhyno, Sting, and Scott Stiener. Was the idea good? Maybe. Did it blow? Yes. Why? because the focus was on them and not the talent they had.

TNA tries to hard to win the older audience. And they do that by bringing in wrestlers from years ago. Look at Ace's and Eights it's mainy D-Von, Festus, Mike Knox (without his awesome beard), Mr. Kennedy, Taz, and A brisco, and Eric Bischoff's son. This gimmick started strong but got drawn out for to long. And now it's dangling on Nexus level of lameness.
.................................................. .................................................. .........

Now for my opinion. Which do I find better? WWE. TNA has potential to run alongside WWE on a global scale. However until they learn that their young home grown talent is what will get them there. They will always be behind.
.................................................. .................................................. .........

There it is my opinion on TNA and WWE. If you don't like what I said, prove me wrong. I'll gladly listen to your arguments as long as it's logical and not just hating to hate. Good bye for now and carry on.

    Here's the thing about wwe guys in tna. If wwe wont give them a job, they are going to look for the second highest payer right ? And if tna sees guys that wwe fans will recognize and say "hey Jeff hardy is on tna, lets check it out", then they are going to sign that person so that they can get more fans. Plus for some of them, it's either take tna pay or go work 20$ a match in the indies(not sure if that's accurate, I was making a joke...)

    anyways, good blog, I like the points you said about tna and their home grown talent

    I get what you're saying, but it's when that talent is pushed highly and a younger more deserving wrestler doesn't it what's the problem

    People continue to think WWE is shifting into a new era.. CM Punk's promo "NEW ERA!" Lesnar returns "NEW ERA!" Rock returns "NEW ERA!". There's no new era, people; get used to it. It'a also mania season and Vince loves to make you believe that something big is coming.. Two weeks after mania, you'll start hearing about some guys you like possibly being released, and the show is suddenly not as exciting as you thought a month prior. Then it repeats.

    I think a lot of people back up their dislike for WWE with good points. There's only so many times you can say it though until it becomes "WWE sucks". I agree with AlexWorldOrder that this new era crap keeps getting thrown around and then never happens.

    As far as TNA goes it sounds like you are mostly talking about the past. It seems like TNA was drawing former WWE guys like RVD, Mr Kennedy, Mick Foley by saying hey come here we'll give you a world title! It's been better nowdays. Jeff Hardy has completely earned his spot and guys like RVD and Anderson are completely out of the title picture.

    Part of Aces and Eights I think is to do with being former WWE guys. Maybe?

    This was s very well thought out and articulated blog. Especially for a ten year old! Lol idk if youre really 10 or i misread it but that point is moot. First off idk about a new wwe era but a shift is definetly happening. Almost to a new physical and aggressive side. And as for tna 3 years ago i wouldve agreed 100%
