Why does it seem every WWE fan hates TNA? I love TNA and WWE, Mostly TNA for its more Vulgar language. But, also for the exciting wrestling, and matches. It seems a bit stupid to hate TNA for no true reason, I heard some reasons be, they sign wrestlers that are run-down and who shouldn't be wrestling. But at least they're giving them chances to get back into wrestling. Now this is just my opinion, but I'd like to truly know why many people hate TNA, and not for the reason that it steals ideas from WWE, which isn't true, at least from what I've seen from both shows.

hate is a strong word, I wouldn't really use it but as far as this goes. yes I hate TNA.

I think it is the WWE mark in me that sees every single mistake on every single show in TNA. I can't describe it to people, I just see mistakes at an incredible rate. i'm not even joking I mean it feels like nitpicking but it is really amazing how many bad things I see in the ring and backstage.

also I hate the way the ring sounds, weird but it just kinda ruins anything good happening for me.

it is honestly hard to describe how humorous watching an episode of TNA is to me, that was the only reason I would watch it to laugh. However I haven't caught it in a bit so maybe it got amazing in that time. Doubt it though.

Thing is I'm just used to the WWE psychology to really love anything else, so that's my reason. If you love TNA, good for you just don't try and sell me on it.

also they have stolen, I'm not saying I hate them because of that and I'm not saying every week is a WWE xerox copy, but they have stolen ideas in an almost mocking way. Just like WCW used O.K and The Juice. TNA did that Sting promo copying the taker one, and what are the chances of a masked wrestler debuting shortly after a masked wrestler debuted in WWE. See I'm not saying it's everything, but the little things are just noticeable.

No it shouldn't. John Cena threads are against the rules. They have been since late 2010.


Now on topic, personally I think TNA sucks for some of the reasons others say it sucks. I used to like it. It was nice seeing another wrestling program other than "Raw" or "SmackDown!", but then it just started being dumb. The storylines were weak, the commentating wasn't really that great, and I don't too much care for some of the superstars (Don't get me wrong, there are quite a few I like) as much as I do for the WWE guys.

I'll agree with you, some of the things in TNA are very humorous, such..The Jersey Shore stuff, dear god why. But, Sting has had this whole dark thing since WCW, and besides, he's sort of turned from that and has become somewhat of a Joker like deal. I don't mind if someone hates it, but for a few people to say, TNA sucks, without a good reason, just bugs me. And you had good reasons.

Not exactly, it anything, the WWE is the same old shit. At least with TNA they don't recycle World Champs, TNA has had men who seem like they'd never have a shot at any world titles, or ones who would never have any shots at world titles in WWE, such as Matt Morgan, AJ styles, Bully Ray, Bobby Roode, and James Storm. And if I remember, in 2010 they went through this giant violent rivalry with Sting, Hogan, Nash, Abyss, RVD, etc. And they brought in Immortal, turned Hardy heel, etc. That's not same old, same old.

The feuds aren't that good, and they are just using old superstars from WWE mostly .

I think TNA was nicknamed 'WWE's retirement home' at one point.

Here is a short list of reasons why I don't watch TNA:

1.) There are lame attempts to point out WWE during promos--if you want to push your product and gain fans, you don't mention the competition in the same breath! TNA is makes bad business even worse by indirectly advertising fans to move towards WWE.

2.) Watching TNA = WWE Classics on Demand.

3.) TNA pays celebrities and ex-wrestlers to help the product but it usually ends up sucking the money out of the other wrestler's/knockout's wallets (not to mention our own). Bad business has created a "money-pit" for TNA. So many higher paid wrestlers have taken pay-cuts due to the overspending ways of Dixie Carter. Hulk Hogan and Eric Bishoff make TNA even worse by focusing the product on themselves and taking precious t.v. time away from other talents.

4.) Poor advertising. Too many times, the products themselves would actually look much better if TNA didn't come off desperate with so many price cuts and exaggerated acting and bad dialogue also.

5.) Bad booking and storylines. Want proof? Watch TNA.

6.) TNA makes so many mistakes on t.v. it gives us fans the reason to say "ITS FAKE". TNA has made so many idiotic mistakes that the company suffers--I can't bear to witness it very much because it insults my intelligence. It doesn't look believable and just lowers the standards of what WWE fans come to expect. TNA is horrible because you know that whenever the storyline is good and its actually exciting--something else gets in the way and completely ruins the experience.

7.) The promos are sometimes just WAY too damn long. Not enough wrestling and too much acting for my taste. To make things worse, sometimes you have to watch wrestlers who can't act make fools of themselves trying to sell injuries and/or gimmacks that just don't fit. See number 8.

8.) Bad gimmacks. Need I say more?

9.) Commentary is sometimes too bland and annoying. It pains me to hear lame jokes and confusing conversations over nothing having to do with wrestling.

10.) TNA pushes [some] wrestlers who just don't deserve the spotlight and haven't gotten "over" with the audience. It propels TNA into an abyss of self-destruction w/out an end of epic failures unseen for years. There are wrestlers/knockouts who get title shots and become champions over others who surely have proven to be more than suited for championship reigns but just never do.

I laughed at this part :cool2:

The visual presentation of TNA isn't attractive either, there set and "Impact Zone" generally is ugly. WWE just has a much, much, much, higher attention to detail, and a lot bigger capacity crowd.

How about you explain to us how is it so homosexual to you then?
and I'm guessing you haven't seen any Great Khali matches since Cena is a godlen god of wrestling compared to that fella. But that's the last thing I say about this subject

On Topic: I think it's the fact that TNA's booking has always been kinda "odd". They can't seem to decide what to do with most of their roster. Anderson went from heel to face and back to heel again like 5 times in two months, That's just bad booking. And then there's the fact that they for some god forsaken reason they still push Jeff Hardy to the main event when the guy ruined one of the biggest PPV's they have.

This is the most strongest opinion. Some people don't deserve their spot, but TNA still use them. And for what? The answer is just to have them there.

And that TNA now has this thing that if you don't have a storyline or feud going, you can't/won't appear on tv . I know a lot of wrestlers are probably pissed .

^^^ That is very unfair. They should let other wrestlers to have a chance to the spot, because that can go to a good future storyline.

Never knew they had that rule. But about TNA's lame chances at pointing out WWE in some promos, WWE superstars have done it too, Cena pointed out going to TNA if he was fired last year for losing to Punk at Summerslam, Jericho did the Hulk Hogan ear thing for some time in 2010 before getting punted. And I'll agree, the booking is..Odd, and such. But for the sucky commentary and lame jokes, WWE commentary, mostly when Striker and Grish were on commentary, they once took time to speak of how good Morrison looked during a match, they never even spoke of the moves for about 3 minutes. And the thing with people who don't get shown because of non-story lines or such, that counts for some WWE superstars. I'll agree TNA isn't the best wrestling show, but WWE isn't the best either. I'd say if TNA and WWE get into a WCW/WWF type feud, it could help both companies.

That won't happen . It'd help TNA more than it would help WWE, and I don't really think that WWE wants to help TNA .
