The Joy of TNA

Given the usual negativity coming from the Online Wrestling Community I wrote a blog post about "The Joy of WWE." I figured that I'll be fair and do "The Joy of TNA." So without further ado, lets get to it.
The Face Turn of Fourtune
Lets face it, the members of Fourtune are the most talented and entertaining in-ring competitors in TNA and when they were heals they often had to reduce to cheating and retreating in order to win matches and hold on to their titles. Now that they are once again faces they are able to showcase their talents and win legitimately making for better matches and storylines.
No Hardy Holds a Championship
I have not been a fan of either Hardy since they were a tag team. I have always found their promos mediocre and their best matches usually had more to do with the quality of opponent rather than anything they did individually. Now with the controversy at 'Victory Road' it seems that Jeff will be out of the spotlight for a while and Matt has not even had a chance to compete for a championship since joining TNA.
As of right now, Kaz holds the X Title, Beer/Money has the tag team belts, Sting is the World Champ, and Gunner or Murphy holds the TV Title (I forget which one). These are all quality in-ring competitors that should be able to put on very entertaining matches.
The Tag Team Division
TNA has awesome tag team competition. They have been hinting at breaking up a couple of the teams, but as of right now they are stacked with talented teams and the titles have legitimacy. That's a hell of a lot more than WWE can say at the moment.
The best part of the tag division in TNA is that they are all truly tag teams and not just a bunch of singles wrestlers randomly thrown together.
Deep Roster of Talent
We all know about Fourtune and then some of the TNA mainstays like Abyss. But with midcarders like Samoa Joe, Matt Morgan, Pope, Hernandez, Bully Ray, etc. They have a lot of individuals that at any point could jump to main event status and make a convincing run.
Many people have commented about what a great heel Ray is. And with the exception of the crappy name I agree 100%. And now that his feud with Devon seems to be over I am looking forward to seeing how his singles career progresses. He certainly made an impact by power-bombing AJ off the ramp and I expect more of that to come.
There is certainly things to dislike about the product, but they could be doing a lot worse. And an important thing to keep in mind is that Flair, Hogan and Bischoff are old and can't be around forever....can they?
