I still think TNA is a great company but there have been a few niggles as of late but you get that with any wrestling company (except NJPW, who are on a great PPV streak of over 18 months
I have been able for the most part to let certain things slide although they still rankle to a degree, the main two being the down curve of the X Division and the decimation of the Knockouts numbers wise (although the later still far outstrip their E counterparts and put on some great matches)
I'm fully on board with the move out of the Impact Zone and I appreciate that this has caused a financial impact. The issues that worry me the most at present are how much input is now being imparted on to them by Spike TV and this Bellator influx/promotion.
Now don't get me wrong, if it proves to be a seller and puts more eye balls on the product then more power to them. I'm just worried that (what looks to me anyway) there seems to be a little trend of letting bonafide wrestlers go to fund these Bellators guys appearances, which also can't be good for the morale of the current roster who have no doubt busted their asses for years to hone their craft as wrestlers. Now I'm sure these Bellator guys have worked their asses off too but if they wanted to be in wrestling so much, why didn't they choose it as their path in the first place?
Personally having stopped watching MMA around UFC 11, I had no idea who Ortiz was so this reveal, for me anyway, was a complete nothing but I do understand where TNA hope the rub off might occur. The problem could arise from what I read about your current MMA fan, thinking they'll move over to start following wrestling, let alone fork out for a PPV seems very unlikely to me or at least extremely limited on what that actual number could be. Most seem to really dislike wrestling unless they were already a fan to begin with (as most guys who frequent the MMA section here seem to be)
All in all though, I'm happy with the product still and I'm only interested in the 'real' roster guys anyway so I doubt this will have to much of an impact on my enjoyment. As long as Spike don't start pushing this more and more to the detriment of TNA entirely, then I remain a happy fan.
