- I think TNA is on a good path right now creative-wise. They just need to incorporate more X-Division and more tag teams. A second show would help but I don't think we would see this until June at best if would even happen this year.
- The eliminating of two PPVs is an interesting move and I am curious to see whether or not they will lead to a significant increase in buys. If they are not pulling at least 25% more buys for Lockdown (LD) and BFG I cannot see how the move would be profitable. The one great thing about this is now that 3 out of the potential 8 PPVs are OUT of the Impact Zone. Hopefully, Destination-X, which is looking like their fourth show, it getting out as well.
- Getting out of the Impact Zone for TV tapings need to be a priority but there is fine line between doing it smart and overkill. TNA should aim at getting one show out of the Impact Zone a month. They also should not be taping in advanced for the 6 weeks or so before LD and BFG.
- I think RVD needs to go which will create some nice room at the top. I'm not Hardy's biggest fan but he is still a major draw. Not sure if TNA could afford to lose him. If they do, they better give Shelton and JoMo a call ASAP. Mr. Anderson could stay for most of this year but Morgan can easily take over his spot once he is at full push status.
