If you could change TNA, if you even would, what would you do?
I posted this in the Abyss thread, but as far as the EV2/Abyss/"They" storyline, I would have had RVD/Abyss pull a swerve and have Abyss win the Title from RVD at the original Hard Justice PPV, then the very next Impact, have the big brawl with the ECW guys finally getting involved, pull and RVD heel turn and use the EV2 to help get Abyss over and become the "New Generation of Extreme". You would carry on the Extreme Invasion, and maybe have Foley return as a heel in some form of "stock holder management position", and he could have made the ECW PPV a FEW months down the road, and then at the beginning of the year, follow up with the attack from Fortune (who would be face) going up against EV2. Sinple storyline that could have lasted the rest of 2010 and into 2011
Beer Money/MCMG is PERFECT right now and is the hottest thing going in TNA. I would go back to TNA's original roots, and make those guys more of a "main focus" with a huge push for their matches, PPV Main Events, Etc. I would use this to make 4 hot, brand new "next level" stars for TNA.
Samoa Joe needs to go back to being a Nation of Violence. Point Blank. Make him the loose cannon that is face one night and heel the next that does anything he wants to do. Similar to Kurt Angle, he would just run through the whole TNA roster with squash matches, making his way up in the Title rankings. Eventually, Angle and Joe would have to bump heads. Put Joe back on the map by making him be the one that retires Kurt Angle. Because when he made that announcement, I knew he was going straight for the Title. WAAAYYYYY to obvious TNA, so swap it up and have Joe put him out.
Fortune is amazing. However, Ric Flair needs to be mouthpiece ONLY and nothing more. Kaz is a great "stooge" for the group, Beer Money fits perfectly, and AJ as well. This is a slow build for the ones involved, which is good. AJ is being groomed into the next Ric Flair and will come into his own soon enough. When that happens, you use AJ Styles to get Kaz over, having an awesome feud between these two outstanding performers. Who would always have some sort of friendship but at the same time be bitter rivals. This seems to be the ONLY thing TNA has going for them long term.
Nash/Sting/Jarrett/Hogan/Bischoff is good for now.... Kind of sketchy as to what they are planning. But, it is good for fans like me who LOVE the whole nWo/WCW era. Seeing Sting with that red face paint was AWESOME for me, and this is good to have them involved with each other and not be the main focus of the show or not be holding down the younger guys. This seems okay for short term and will be good as long as this angle doesn't grow too much more.
Beautiful people/Motorcycle woman. Honestly, who cares. It was a cute little storyline from the knockouts division Yeah... and if you want to make it interesting, move her away from just the BP and have her attack the whole entire Division, as a "take everybody out" type of deal. Beautiful people are in TNA for one reason. "TNA". TNA needs to get a little more racy with these 3, considering spike TV is the "network for men"... if you wanna rip some WWE/old storylines, incorporate some HLA or Extreme Expose' or something, because that's what the guys watch the beautiful people for.
I would also be okay with having the first match of every TNA iMPACT be X Division. Let these guys shine like they once were, and bring some older X Division stars back in!! Daniels, Jerry Lynn, Elix Skipper, etc and build this thing back up!!! You could even put Samoa Joe back in the X Division!!! But, do something!!!!!
and please BRING BACK THE 6 SIDED RING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
