Hello everyone, hope your well. This is my 1st ever blog ever, not just on this site. I'm just going to be asking the simple question here, why cant TNA make new stars?
I'm from the UK (england), and when TNA 1st came to our TV, i thought "WOW, this stuff is really exciting", at that time, i didn't know any wrestlers apart from Jeff Jarrett, and Sting, but the wrestling i saw, was so new, so fresh, it made me want to watch more of it, sadly, the channel it was on at the time, only ever showed one episode, (Wednesday PPV, sting and AJ vs jeff jarrett and someone), until it started to show IMPACT and the PPV, i was like yes, i've waiting soo long for this, and i loved it, totally loved it.
Over time, TNA started getting in more and more WWE talent, and hardly ever pushing any of their own, the only real person is AJ styles. You'd always normally see jeff jarrett, Kevin Nash and sting in the main events, and everytime you think AJ is going to stay main event they do something stupid.
But i started to think, if TNA just thought, "ok lets put all these new guys no one has ever heard of vs each other, and hope they get over", to the normal fan, i dont think that will work, someone just turning the channel to TNA out of the blue, needs to see someone they know. Now this is were TNA are messing up, they have the chance to showcase the younger stars which the tops guys, look at wade barrett, he's the heel he is today, because of his feud with a top guy like cena, and now he's over as it gets on Smackdown.
What i dont understand is why TNA cant use the old guys, such as hogan, flair, jeff and matt hardy, why they cant use these old guys, who people know straight away, and feud them with the younger guys, rather than just feuding with each other. them guys are over, people know who they are, but by feuding with younger talent, it helps them get known and over. I haven't watched TNA in a good 2 months, and not because of the TV issues, its just because i dont want to, i find it boring, and old, and it looks like the guys that should get the push never do. I think AJ should be the TOP guy in TNA, and everytime he's about to be, they de-push him, it will never make sense to me.
Thank you for reading, im really sorry, if you didnt like this, and thank you if you did, as i said, its my 1st ever blog, so feel free to take the piss lol.
Thank you, Sambhi
