I do enjoy Aires and since he came back as one of those multi X division guys I didn't expect him to surmount to much, but he rose to the top and he is great, but TNA just makes me scratch my head far too much, the clunky wrestling, the poor commentary, the production value, the music, the crowd, the constant swerves and surprises and gangs and backstage attacks and OMG MATCH OF THE YEAR AAAARGH and the inability to let a moment sink in.

All these factors are what makes me not even remotely get excited about TNA anymore, trust me, I watch it and read Josh Boutwell's recaps EVERY week, so I'm allowed to criticise and comment, it just needs to scale back and rebuild the lego tower with proper reinforcements and a sturdier foundation. - Tito Ortiz coming in does what exactly? Sure plant him in the crowd and have him "spit" or swear at Rampage as he heads down the ramp, but actually come down and end a show when there is already a heated A&8's and MEM feud happening and the Rampage/Ortiz feud is for a different show.

Please, at least have a backstage segment in the middle of the show, but to end it? That should be reserved to Bully Ray, MEM, Sabin or dare I say it, Hogan, not some MMA guy who can't wrestle and won't draw a single extra dime to the business.

I like seeing Manik backstage without the mask and
him talkin to sabin on impact and saying when hes out
there with the mask and he becomes a different person.

Bobby Roodes recent angles have been awesome to.

I also like AJ Styles new submission hold but wish he
would use the stylesclash sometime he hasnt used it
for a long time.

The majority of the roster is good, the match last week between Aries & Styles was as good as I've seen in a while.

I'm not in a position to say what I like about TNA being that I don't watch the show. However, I saw the Chris Sabin/Bully Ray match and really it summed up everything that was wrong with the show from when I used to observe it imo. There were people on the outside of the ring, at minimum 10 wrestlers, none of which actually got involved in any way in the match. Whoever was on Bully Ray's side tried to get involved and a brawl broke out between those 10 wrestlers and they fought to the back. So literally, there was no point to them being out there. Then, Chris Sabin (the babyface) wins the match after hitting Bully Ray with a lead pipe. Just so much stunk there, it was absolutely atrocious, that's why I don't watch TNA.

I would really like to see where AJ Styles character goes
Is he worthy of winning the bound for glory series
tornament well hes lost a couple of times, just wonder
if hes worthy of being a world champion again.

I like to see where mem and aces and eights ends up.

I like how there evening the plan feilds and there suppose
to have match against each other at Hardcore Justice.

I'm not sure if Kurt Angle will be involved in this since his
recent dui arrest and him going into rehab if he is in rehab
would he be alowd to work?

It would be cool to see the aces and eights just end in a few
months I dont see any of them winning worthy title like
Mr. Anderson hasnt done much all he does is talk and
Devon was the only guy who held the tv title but that belt
hasnt been around latley since they had abyss win it but
Abyss is no wheres to be found weird how they bring him
back and doesnt show up again continuing what ever angle
and making another belt disapear.

The Bound for Glory series like nearly everything in TNA is FAR too long, I literally don't care who wins anymore, any momentum of Style being the hero is gone because this is being dragged out far too long AND he has wrestled and spoken in promos too much rendering his mystique pointless.

The thing that kills me about the BFG Series is that it's supposed to be this incredibly important thing, with the winner getting a guaranteed shot at the World Title, at the biggest show of the year, but it's just buried in their TV shows and specials-that-used-to-be-PPVs. As with... everything to do with TNA, there's just a complete lack of focus.

I wonder whats the deal with the whole thing about Brooke Hogan and Bully Ray being married
then they just almost can the storyline yet they havnt made a story wear the two would be
divorced.

Is Brooke going to at all eventually give in for Bully Ray and let him be dominate?

So a wedding storyline they didnt know what to do with that leads in controversy.

Taz got more heat then Bully for that occasion.

Bully Ray once said thats hes never really used a hammer during a match well he did
when he had a ladder match with Jeff Hardy didnt make since I think thats what I heard
come out of his mouth or hes playing kayfabe am i right?

Abyss is another lost cause and the tv belt to.

So Jeff Hardy isnt being recognize as much since hes in the bfg series tornament so
guys who are in that tornament make them look like young guns to eventually win
the tna world heavyweight championship and win they do they are made of somebody.

But Jeffs already won the bfg series last year and hes in it again looking like a young gun.

im actually enjoying the One Night Only series, id prefer it to be more random and a title change here or there would be stokeful but as its pre recorded so far in advance i see why they dont change title reigns on th ONO's

i marked pretty hard at Tito Ortiz being brought back too and am really interested to see what happens with it

I laughed at Ortiz, The only semi decent thing I like about that company is the fact that they are failing before our eyes. Can't wait for the announcement of closing up shop within the next year!

I just noticed that with the 4 PPV's TNA serves up a year, if you're a new fan shopping around for wrestling dvd's and you buy all the old PPV's and then get to 2013, you buy say Slammiversary and then notice when you pick up Bound For Glory that nearly the WHOLE card is totally different making them scratch their heads and go what have they done in between

I remember enjoying Hernandez a few years ago when he started his singles run. The dude's shoulder tackles always made me pop a little. He won some a world title shot in the stupid concoction called feast or fired and then proceeded to cash it in during a fatal four way to turn it into a 5 man match. He then got taken out within 5 minutes of the match by somebody he was feuding with and got stretchered out or something. Booking at its finest.

Funnily enough, I stopped caring about tna around this point. I haven't watched a show in several months. Rvd had my attention for a little while before they shat on him for contract reasons, Austin Aries winning the belt also had my attention. I thought he did a pretty good job as a performer, but I never cared enough to continue watching.

The problem with TNA is... (this should be a catchprase lol) is they have Austin Aries who is GREAT and so is Bully Ray but every GREAT wrestler needs some sort of GREAT surrounding or production... Andre/Hogan had 93,000 roaring fans, Rock/Austin had roaring fans, great chemistry and a simple rivalry that was awesome. And even most boring or repetitive feuds now in wwe still have great video packages, lighting effects, pyro, interesting entrances and a big time feel, even in ROH, or ECW, they KNOW that they have a small venue, and that they don't have a big budget, so the atmosphere has to match the environment. In TNA, no matter what good they have, so much shit just overshadows it, the production value makes it look like a day time games/quiz show, the audience is so quiet, the music is so faint, you forget what music represents who until they come out and because every promo seems like a free style to SAY SUM THING KOOOOL!! They never come across as memorable. There is a reason why some scripts win oscars... because they are structured in a way that is memorable.
