Wrestling with Me: TNA to the next level

Just a quick blog documenting what TNA needs to do stay in business and more importantly excel. I've ran wrestling companies successfully so know what I'm talking about. In a nutshell TNA needs to raise profile and uncomplicate everything, this means sack all talent who don't fit into a directly division or benefit the company by just being there. This would be namely; Gunner, Knux, Anderson, Rob Terry, Abyss, Hernandez, Hogan, Sting, Taz and the whole woman's division.
After that streamline the rest of the roster to three easy to follow equally promoted divisions; the heavyweights ; Angle, Joe, Jeff Hardy, a serious Eric Young, EC3 and Rampage Jackson . The middleweights/X division; A.J, Aries, Zema, Spud, TJ PErkins and Marty Scrull. And the tag division; Bad Influence, Dudleyz, MCMG, Beer Money, BroManz and Brisco and Bischoff.
These could be changed and altered if presented as a weight drop or step up or a team going separate eventually when things go stale. This would give all the divisions individuality and prestige as well making the whole thing easier to follow and get into. This would also give a Royal Rumble type event a very different feel too. Doing this would only be half the battle though.
This being in place would give the casual viewer the chance to understand what's going on when flicking through. Getting casual and mainstream audience to watch, which for me is where TNA struggles most, can be done by instead of wasting money on a Hogan or whatever getting a mainstream celeb involved which surely can't be too hard given the amount of money that would be saved by not paying Hogan or Sting. A Robert Patterson or a Justin Bieber would get certain people hooked in, Tyson, Sheen, Stallone another, either way any star would boost profile and let people know there is an alternative to the childish, dated WWE product. This is the most important part of the battle for me.
Thats my opinions, what's yours?
