That's what I mean, so the additions of Hardy, Angle, Flair etc are not "Hey looky looky, what we got!" it was more "These guys were fired or retired...hmmm... DIBBS!"

The addition of Angle was quite a good one for me.

Flair should never have been hired and I think he was one of the signings when Hogan debuted, there was something like 8 debuts in that Impact with Nasty Boys, Hall, etc.

The re-introduction of the 6 sided ring would help show case TNA, it won't happen while Hogan & Bischoff are there however, so we'll have to make do with the WCW style ramp, WCW style ring & WCW style barriers cramped beside ring.

AJ Styles is on top of the bfg series.

Mr. Anderson got a TNA world title shot at Bully Ray
next week at No Surrender man I like when Anderson
does face stuff hope he is on his way out of the aces
and eights hard to say if he will win at this time but sure
this is just to give him a good match since he probably
wont have one at bfg.

She said she let people go because there was no room for them on tv so they were paid for nothing, then follows it up by saying she'll bring in new people yet says nothing about additional programming.

Sounds legit.

She intimated that she'd LIKE to have more programming time. She sure didn't say anything about HAVING more programming time though

Japan, Puerto Rico, Mexico... hell even ROH are these guys' preferred opitions. TNA is like that fast food serving job you have no choice but to take to pay the bills.

Doesn't change my point.

She claims to get people go for X reason but follows it up by saying she will bring more people in but doesn't give a Y or a Z or an ABC. If you can't get people on T.V right now and are having financial issues, what on earth do you gain by bringing in new people?

So then to my point, if she did imply that there was an X or a Y, then it would be more logical. If she even mentioned that she was hiring a smaller amount of people than what was released or mentioned how the payment method would be different (such as pay nightly basis) then her statement(s) wouldn't have come across as so moronic.

The vast majority of the talent are/were already on pay-per-appearance contracts, rather than fixed amounts.

I started watching TNA around the time of the start of the BFG series.

There's lots that I've enjoyed about TNA:

I've enjoyed AJ Styles a lot. Seeing him go hot and cold on faces and heels. HIs in-ring performances have been excellent and adding a submission finisher has added to his ring work.

Austin Aries has also been great. Just love watching his matches. Shame they didn't handle his screwover of Manic better.

Loved Aces and Eights at the beginning. Large group of bullies pulling together made them a great group but they've quickly destroyed the group in recent weeks. Really poor direction to take them in. Surely the point of such a large heel group is to help build some popularity for the faces battling with them. The group self-imploding makes no sense.

I enjoyed the BFG series. I didn't guess who would win until AJ came out and retired Devon. Usually these things are obvious from the beginning.

I find Daniels and Kazarian pretty funny.

I enjoy watching the matches on TNA more than WWE.
