The TNA thread - catch it whilst you still can!

Post by Adam D on Mon 22 Jun 2015, 8:16 pm

First topic message reminder :

Thought I would start a thread where you can discuss the latest TNA episode each week and discuss the latest news.

I thought I would kick off with a funny comment that happened on this weeks show.

Joseph Parks was interviewed and he mentioned how he had fallen on hard times (and how it could be his new gimmick "hard times Joseph park"!) but how he lost all his money by investing in Tout!

TNA didn't make the top 150 cable shows for the 18-49 demographic with Lockdown. That sounds pathetic to me. Why have the ratings remained so low? Is it lack of characters? Poor booking? Time slot? Day of the week? What is it? At this rate I wonder how long they'll last on Pop TV?

I'd say the first two. Lack of well developed characters combined with lousy booking. Makes for a poor product, which results in low-budget TV deals and graveyard shift slots.

I've commented before that TNA's creative team only seem able to cope with 1 major storyline at a time (usually the current world title feud). Everyone else seems to have to make do with whatever filler material they come up with.

Likewise with character development. EC3 is about the only really good example of someone they've built up from scratch, into a leading figure in the company. Other than that, they rely on established names like Angle, the Hardys, Roode and Storm, while the rest of the talent seems to come and go as needed...never getting enough exposure to establish themselves as notable individuals.

I think its purely down to the tainted name. People hear TNA they automatically switch off because its been a joke promotion for so many years.

They're now conveniently releasing a new AJ Styles DVD since he's made his way to WWE. I wonder if his last ever TNA match will be on there where they treated him disgracefully? To think Dixie actually tried to pull off a MacMahon and act like she made him during that terrible Dixieland era and that she could break him too. Now he's in the WWE not under some other generic wrestling name but as AJ Styles and has even taken his moniker the Phenomenal One with him. That's justice. AJ deserves to be in the WWE making good money.

Watched lockdown this morning and quite enjoyed it.

The knockouts were better than they have been for weeks and the main event was good too, although screwy finish as always.

Tigre UNOs dive was a good highlight reel moment.

Still really enjoying e-li-drake. His promos are really good.

If they thought losing a TV deal was a bad thing, that could very well be lights out for TNA.

At this point I no longer care if they go under. If new ownership leads to them culling Dixie and Gabruick then I may reinvest in TNA. But, that is a tall order.

Think they're just looking for investors rather than to actually sell, the problem is they want Dixie still in charge. It's old news really, they were doing the same thing a couple years ago.

I certainly didn't see the Spud heel turn coming...why did they have him help EC3 in the non-title match last week?

I expected a screwy finish as its still too early in Matt's reign to give up the title (reckon he will drop it to his bro...you heard it here last) but Rebi coming in with the hammer (which Spud knocked out of her hand) made more sense than what happened.

Enjoyed the Knockouts match...a rarity just lately...but they seemed to up the intensity and made a really good showing.

Tigre Uno is hugely under-rated IMO. Okay so he's a bit on the small side, but his move set and work rate make him look good against almost anyone. Think TNA needs more X Division...they've really been neglecting it for some time.

Agree Drake is developing into a great heel. I would say he's nothing special in the ring, but with more time on the mic his personality is being allowed to come though. Glad he's stopped that "Prince of Eternia" crap...that was embarrassing.

I just wonder if having his trunks pulled off by Grado was pre-planned, a spur of the moment thing, or just clumsiness on Grado's part. Shocked  laughing

And most importantly...have we finally seen the last of Grado?

Whilst TNA may be surviving longer than this thread imagined, they will now be doing so without EY and Roode. Both have requested their release from the promotion, and whilst EY has "Heading to the building and thinking back on the last 12 years....... What a wild ride!!!!" and Roode has "Thank u to everyone who had a part in making the last 12 years of my life unforgettable. On to the next chapter in my life #ItFactor" there has yet to be word from TNA

Meltzer has heard that both are WWE bound, but has not had it confirmed yet. Surprised by EY, could see Roode doing the Aries/Storm/Joe NXT route but you'd think EY was different. Not sure why I think that, just do

Someone once said that young was better than punk. It's hard always being right.

Appears that Jeff hardy did another spot monkey bit as well. Did a Denton on to Matt through a table from above the titantron.

Do they even have 32 wrestlers?
Or are they going to do what they did last time and just show matches between people that at the time of airing were no longer with the company? They could use old footage and have CM Punk v Samoe Joe etc as qualifiers.

Supposedly AJ Styles being so over is what has made them want to bring in other TNA talent. The problem with that is I think Styles was more over because of the hype of what he did since he finished with TNA.

I think that was almost certainly the case as his last year with TNA was shocking. Roode could do a decent job in NXT, especially if they can convince Storm to come back with him, but I reckon Eric Young would fit in more at Lucha Underground.

I think they're doing it purely to bury TNA, the way they signed Sting so they could finally bury WCW. Wink


On a more serious note, it looks like TNA has turned into another feeder promotion for WWE, having all their established stars bought up, leaving them to find new talent.

Very disappointed that Roode is leaving, given Beer Money was only recently resurrected. I would imagine that means Storm is also going. Reckon they would be major players in WWE's tag team scene.

TNA are in some serious financial Poopie right now. They've had to move out of their official headquarters into the warehouse where they hold all the shop stock. Meltzer is reporting its because they were evicted from their previous building.

Pop are also taking a big hit in ad revenue. TNA generated $18k which is less than half of Pops 'Days of out Live's' lead-in show, which generated $44k. TNA also generate an average of $335 per 30 second ad whereas the acquired movie 'You've got Mail' got $406.

Theres an investor waiting to pile money into TNA to solve these problems, but they want a controlling stake which Dixie isnt will to give up. Its understood she wants to keep atleast 51% so she keeps control but she may not have a choice at this rate.

Things really are dire for TNA at the moment. One of the worst things to happen as well is WWE creating really good relationships with the independent scene. They now have a working relationship with Evolve, they're producing the Cruiserweight series which will include matches at Progress, Revolution Pro and EVOLVE shows. 

TNA should have been on that years ago, had they cultivated a better relationship with the independent scene, where almost all their home-grown talent came from, they could be in a much better position than they are in now because they would be benefiting from the relative boom in popularity that those promotions are getting. TNA would then have had first dibs in talent that came out of these promotions. 

Instead their roster is dwindling, their top home-grown stars have nearly all left and whilst they still have Drew Galloway, EC3, Jeff Hardy and Lashley. I'm not sure that's enough to make a dent. They're being overtaken left, right and centre and I'm not sure there is any chance of recovery now. NXT has taken their spot in the wrestling world and companies like Ring of Honour, NJPW and Lucha Underground are eating into their fan base. 

I doubt they'll get another TV deal and the fact that an investor is available, who is willing to put money in is a miracle and they shouldn't let that slip. 

The only positive for TNA is that they're at least not as badly managed as GFW.

Well I hope this mysterious investor knows a bit about wrestling, or at least knows people who do.

The only way TNA will ever be successful is by having a wholesale clearout of the boardroom. The current encumbents couldn't run a village fete and personally I could write better storylines than some of the dross the so-called creative team is churning out.

I really don't get why Dixie is so keen to stay at the helm of what is clearly a sinking ship.

Money-wise I'm not sure it really needs a huge amount...apart from maybe investing in some decent premises, facilities for the talent, promotions etc.

I think the two major things TNA really needs is a decent creative team and some structure to their shows, which feel largely thrown together. Lack of character development and continuity just kills interest and audience enthusiasm...even when the current heavyweight champ is involved. Their main stars get good reactions on the way to the ring, but often the audience can barely be heard during matches.

They have 4 main categories: Heavyweights, Tag Teams, X Division and Knockouts. Would it be so hard to divide their Impact shows into half hour segments, to give the talent in each category decent air time...say a couple of matches for each (allowing for ad time, backstage segments, promos etc.)

Special / longer matches (Monsters' Ball, falls count anywhere, TLCs, gauntlets etc.) could be saved for PPVs.

Also no pointless 5-minute brawls or unsanctioned matches which just take away air time from scheduled matches. Find a better way to build feuds.

I think fewer matches per show would allow the writers to focus their output more and hopefully result in better (more interesting) feuds and matches. Focus on quality rather than quantity.

Think someone else mentioned changing the arena lighting, music, maybe using some easily changeable ring dressing, to emphasise each category/brand of wrestling.

Anyway, waffle over. In a nutshell, the current management has a serious collective case of tunnel vision and the company needs new people with a new vision.

I dunno. I found it quite watchable.

I really though Matt Hardy couldn't act for toffee, but his new Marvel super-villain gimmick is almost as good as you get in the movies. Best I've seen from him in TNA anyway. Maybe I need to watch some older videos...

Jeff is still as wooden as a cricket bat (except when he's being Willow - which oddly enough is what they make cricket bats out of).

For all that though, they still work together reasonably well. Its not the worst promo I've seen on TNA...

Wow...thats actually..pretty cool IMO.

Looks a little Rambo-esque, but if you put aside all the corny acting, staging a match in the Hardys' back garden is certainly different.

At least it shows somebody in the creative team is thinking outside the box a little. Unless it was the Hardys' idea to begin with...

I hope if and when this takeover happens, they start staging shows away from the Impact Zone on a regular basis.

The back garden story is quite unique and really sells their past. But the stuff with it? Nope

Apparently this is worth watching this week just for the #FinalDeletion

Story so far...

Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy

This brother vs brother feud has been going on for ever since January, where Matt 'cheated' in order to defeat EC3 for the World Title. Jeff was unhappy with Matt's actions, but when he confronted him about it he was attacked by Eric Young. Matt Hardy then stood by and watched as EY did a piledriver on Jeff Hardy through a table, taking Jeff out of action for the whole UK tour with an injured neck. Jeff then returned to exact revenge on EY, and with him out of the way turned his attention back to his brother, who had continued down his underhanded path of retaining the title

After Matt ultimately lost the title to Drew Galloway following a feast-or-fired cash-in, the two would finally face each other one-on-one, and after Matt and Tyrus managed to defeat Jeff and Galloway in a tag match a week before (via use of hammer!) Matt was able to choose the stipulation: an I Quit match. This excellent match ended with Jeff performing a Swanton Bomb on Matt through a table from a staircase high up in the Impact Zone, ending the match in a no contest as both men were carried out by EMTs.

However, whilst Matt was out of action, Jeff worked his way in to a main event match with an opportunity for the World title on the line. However, Jeff Hardy was taken out by Decay in said main event, which cost him a shot at Drew Galloway's title. Following this, Jeff and James Storm were in a tag team title match against Decay, when Willow suddenly appeared on stage, providing a distraction for the mist for Decay to retain. Later backstage, 2 more Willows jumped Jeff Hardy when he was gunning for revenge.
The following episode of Impact, Jeff had a one-on-one match with Willow, who he quickly defeated before preparing to unmask him, only to be stopped by a second Willow. Then the third Willow came limping down to the ring, and was revealed to be none other than Matt Hardy. He told Jeff how this was his revenge, then Matt choked him out and left him in the ring.

Later that night, Jeff told Matt Hardy that they will settle this at Slammiversary! We found out that this was to be a Full Metal Mayhem match, one that Jeff and Matt helped to make famous. Unhappy with Matt's 'transformation' however, Rockstar Spud and Tyrus would urge Matt to leave Jeff alone. Matt told them that he would leave it up to them, and made a ladder match between Jeff Hardy and Rockstar Spud & Tyrus, with the contract for the Slammiversary match up for grabs. Jeff would go on to win after a twist of fate atop the ladder, and the match was now set for Slammiversary.
As has become well documented, the two took part in a contract signing at Matt's mansion estate, including Matt's keyboard music introduction, where Matt goaded Jeff in to the ring at his house, only for him to hit a bottle on the back of his head as Reby distracted him, then hit a side effect through a solid wooden table.

Finally, the last week before Slammiversary it seemed as though Willow had returned, as he was filmed in the Impact Zone vowing revenge on his brother. Then after Drew and Lashley had left the arena in the three way title match that Matt was a part of, Matt got on the mic to complain, only for a series of Willows to walk out on stage - and then the lights went out. When they came back on, the crowd members of the Impact Zone crowd were wearing Willow masks. Jeff Hardy would then appear and tell Matt that he doesn't need Willow, and then proceeded to run to the ring and brawl with Matt as Impact went off the air.

The Slammiversary was as wild and crazy as you'd expect from the Hardy brothers, and it eventually ended when Jeff hit a picture perfect Swantom Bomb from the top rope to the outside, through a table through which Matt was placed. Matt however would not be deterred in his quest to delete Brother Nero.
Following Slammiversary, Jeff Hardy would face Eli Drake for the KOTM championship on Impact. After Jeff hit a swanton, Matt would interfere and bite Earl Hebner's hand to prevent the count. Matt then lured Jeff to the same place Jeff hit the Swanton months before at the top of the staircase, and pushed him down the stairs and through a table at the bottom.

One week later, they would face off in a Six Sides of Steel match, where Jeff would once again be victorious after a splash from the top of the cage through two tables with Matt in the middle. Again Matt would become even more 'broken' - but vowed he would not quit until all Brother Nero's were deleted.

Finally, last week Matt would come to the ring in a wheelchair and call out Jeff. As Reby distracted Jeff, Matt got out, revealing that he was in fact not injured, and assaulted him. After laying Jeff out in the middle of the ring, Matt would make a challenge for Jeff to settle this once and for all, back where it all began - in the Hardy estate in Cameron, North Carolina. It will be the "FINAL DELETION!"

I've only seen the first 4 minutes (up to the drone attack) and it's already the greatest thing ever!

Are they taking the pi55?

To be fair, on the one hand it was utterly ridiculous, on the other, they got me to watch it, make a comment about it, and made me proper belly laugh several times.

I don't know what it is!
