The TNA Name!

Post by jjones123 » Wed Jun 20, 2012 12:27 pm

I know there is a lot of things that need to improve in TNA to make it a decent wrestling promotion but I think they should really consider renaming the company. It started as Total Non-stop Action (TNA) the emphasis being on TNA because they were going to be a promotion that pushed the envelope had more adult oriented storylines, kinda like the attitude era in WWE, but that era was over so they went with the usual cleaner storylines which is good.

Now they have the name TNA which I guess was supposed to be a play off the usual T*ts and A**. Usually if, and that's a big if, I'm watching an episode of Impact and someone walks in the room and asks "what are you watching" and I say "TNA", they say "what??? T & A?" "No, no Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling"

Not to copy WWE but if I were the TNA authority I would remane the comapany simply "TNE" Total Non-Stop Entertainment. This way it pushes away from the whole sexual connotation of the name.

I know this is a very minor change but I think it will help.

Change their name now, and a minimally mainstream and widely unproven company that has been building recognition for ten years loses its name value, connection and familiality with fans and new fans.

WWF had DECADES of recognition and worldwide coverage for the chance to change the name in 2002

I never really cared for the TNA name it sounds too much like Tits & @$$. Although it would be a great name for a porn company. lol

I personally dont mind the name, ALOT of people still to this day whine about it but regardless I think its too late at this point.

TNA is used for ppv events
TNA Belts are still used as TNA Belts not Impact Wrestling belts
Impact Wrestling is the TV Show that is branded blue.
