The thing is, even if TNA did utilise a thing first, it's not like they invented it. Any new production method they use is derived from some other part of television - most likely soap operas. So, people can complain all they like about WWE being soap-cheese but TNA is doing it too and - as so often claimed - doing it first. Just because it has a "Sons Of Anarchy feel" to it, doesn't lend it automatic credence. Not if you aren't a simpleton anyway.
All WWE can be accused of is ripping it off even later
than TNA exploited a tried and true production method - but new to the wrestling world and considering most numbskull wrestling fans, I guess it may as well have never existed before. But I see. I know better.
