Ladies and gentlemen; welcome to another edition of Loose Cannon. In the latest edition of Loose Cannon; I blogged about the WWE Battleground 2013 card which is a new ppv installment by the WWE in attempt to bring new obstacles and matches to WWE superstars. In this edition; I will blog about the revival of Impact Wrestling! Welcome to the show for the wrestling fans, from a wrestling fan, and forever for wrestling fans as Loose Cannon will begin monumentally.
TNA know establish as Impact Wrestling is a striving wrestling promotion that came into fruition in 2002. During the time; it has faced harsh remarks from critics and a loss of superstars/financial problems. It also shriveled in some attributes such as the X-Division; Bellator athletes such as Rampage Jackson/Tito Ortiz and legends such as the icon Sting and Hulk Hogan. During it's time; TNA has broken through boundaries and delivered good to excellent matches. Even though it is still a promotion scratching and crawling to compete against the WWE; it has sunk to Rock Bottom as ratings to an all time low! Who do we blame with this overgrowing epidemic? It is not Hulk Hogan, Dixie Carter or creative; it is Impact Wrestling in a whole.
How to revive Impact Wrestling?
X-Division: The X-Division is one of the main reason I love Impact Wrestling alongside Bully Ray and MEM. During this period of time; the X-Division is at it's all time low with Impact Wrestling paying less attention to the Division and more attention to one specific storyline; which is the A&8's and MEM. During the period of time I have watched Impact Wrestling, the X-Division fascinates me all the time with names such as Manik, Sonjay Dutt, Kenny King, etc. Why is Impact Wrestling paying less attention to the X-Division. I have no idea; but this is a ship that is sinking quickly and if Impact Wrestling is unable to fix the X-Division than simply get rid of it. For a promotion such as Impact Wrestling; it would be hard to do that as it is not at a level with financial backing and wrestlers such as the WWE. To renew interest into the Division; have more X-Division matches instead of one a week on Impact Wrestling or devote a show via Hulu Plus or YouTube to the X-Division. I do not applaud Hulk Hogan decision of X-Division matches being one on one but if it is suitable to Impact Wrestling than it is fine with the promotion.
Stop Impact: Impact Wrestling has a major flaw in it's ever growing promotion and that signing old WWF/E talent. It is an obnoxious flaw that Impact Wrestling does as it fails simultaneously with names such as Road Dogg and Billy Kidman; jumping ship to the promotion after their best days were far behind them. Instead of signing talents in the WWF/E caliber; start signing talents in developments such as ROH and OVW. If Impact Wrestling signs talents; it gives them a longer life span in the business as they are long and fresh. By fixing this flaw; TNA does not need to worry about the future as it is long in development.
GM's: Why does Impact Wrestling need a GM. It is a ridiculous reason because Hulk Hogan has no control over the rampage of A&8's and Tito Ortiz. If Impact Wrestling wants to fix it's promotion; Hulk Hogan does not need to be GM of Impact Wrestling or anyone in that authority figure.
Mainstream: Impact Wrestling needs to go mainstream. Unfortunately; it is losing that battle as WWE has already acquired most of the mainstream attention.
Monday Night Fight: If Impact Wrestling wants to beat Monday Night Raw; then simply move Impact Wrestling back to Monday Night's. While doing this it acquires more fans to get involved in the product as it is battling Monday Night Raw. The only way Impact Wrestling can get into a scuffle with Raw is by signing new talent; new time slot (opposite of Monday Night Raw) and fire the first shot in the new generation Monday Night Wars. This would help both WWE and TNA step up competition and give the fans excellent matches.
Video Game Franchise: Impact Wrestling has flopped when it comes with Video games. It's first installment TNA Impact was a excessive game to play but lacked capability of fun and excitement. During the time; TNA made Impact Cross the Line which eventually flopped with bad graphics and not a large selection of superstars. It is no reason Impact Wrestling is unable to fix this problem as they need to acquire a developer that is experienced in creating video game franchise and making it mainstream such as EA Sports. With EA Sports making Impact Wrestling; it can have better AI's; better graphics, and excessive game play that is fun and exciting to play with a friend while watching Impact.
