"...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".

If there exists a wrestling promotion thats a bigger company than WWE--I'd want to see it. So far, WWE holds the number one spot on a global scale. WWE is the place many wrestlers/divas strive to go because you have the chance to become mainstream in media and around the world. Unfortunately, no other has come close to them in years.

Todd Grisham and Matt Striker aren't on commentary anymore. I'm not a big fan of either one but neither guy announces much at all anymore. You've probably [addressed] one of the main concerns.

TNA vs. WWE--this would be a dream come true.

@Alex: WWE masterfully crafts its presentation. Its easily 10/10 value. I keep a good eye on these details and they truly understand how to market their product and attract fans everywhere.

@Honey-Wpr96: TNA only books wrestlers w/fueds and storylines? What a shame, not only does this affect the wrestlers/knockouts (by not being used) but it takes away from what spectacular matches, promos, and moments the fans are missing out on too.

@Honey Raul: It really disturbs me that there are so many great talents are not utilized and and/or misused. It makes TNA (or iMpact Wrestling, however people want to call it) look bad. One of the worst decisions to make in wrestling is to have great talents on the roster have them never used or misused for bad booking and storylines.

@Majestic SpaceTroll: Ken Anderson multiple face/heel switch? Jeff Hardy push?<------ O_o wasn't this the same wrestler (w/Matt Hardy) who said in a video that he "made CM Punk" and appeared as though he was drugged out and said Punk wasn't straight edge because he used Ambien. Jeez.

I never said they weren't the biggest, I just said that I don't believe WWE is the best. Just because it is the biggest, doesn't mean that it's the best. Many video games and movies alike show that. If anything, I'd say ROH and Indy wrestling are better than TNA and WWE.

In ROH and other promotions like AAA, etc focuses more on wrestling than having promos, etc like WWE and TNA does .

Wrestling wise, there are many talents spread throughout many regions in the world not picked up by either TNA or WWE. But, TNA does give more guys/gals the chance though. We fans are picky about our wrestlers and divas/knockouts. :asd: We may not always agree on the promotion or the wrestler/diva/knockout, but we love wrestling. :wub:

I think TNA's biggest/main problem is it tries TOO hard to be WWE now, they need to go back to their old days in the beginning & also let someone who knows the business run TNA.

As for Todd Grisham, he left WWE & went to ESPN, just like Coachman.

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.



Also to add this and Alex . I think X Division , Television and Tag Team ones are on their worst moment .

On X Division there isn't strong competerers , I mean , except vs Alex Shelley , Austin Aries has faced on this months Jesse Sorenson , Kid Kash and Zema Ion , who is a bit annoying , they have more guys for it who deserve more .

At Television , what can I say Robbie don't have hat charisma and ring skills for it , and now he lost it to Devon , who didn't appear in months .

On Men Tag Division happens the same as in WWE , Mexican America , MCMG and Joe & Magnus are the only teams , TNA isn't interested in MA , so we have only 2 teams .

For Women Tag Division , what can I say , champions are ODB & Eric Young ...

TNA has been blocking them off really with all the ex-WWE talent . Plus, most of the original x-Division members/members who made it good, are now gone .

The X-division league has..gone down the drain, I'll say that much. It was most strange when they allowed Abyss to win the championship, I'll admit it's...new? But still it was weird, I still like TNA a lot more than WWE, I like the wrestling more, and hell, even the commentary, I like listening to Tazz(?) and Tenay! And for their new invasion like storyline, it's really nice in my opinion. I'll say that I watch a lot more of this Revolution wrestling show that has started on Youtube, with Morrison and Rhyno, and etc, it seems cool, but I still like TNA, a lot.

Eh this was a bump but since it was brought back up, I think they need to organize their titles better. You cant have a man that weighs over 300 lbs holding your cruiserweight championship like Joe has, or a man holding one half of a woman's tag team championship -_-. That is so degrading that you can't even hold a male title.

"Hate" is the wrong word, TNA just doesn't hook me and keep me coming back like WWE does. I watched an episode of it about some months ago and by the end, I was all just, "meh". Nothing about it made me even care what would happen the next week.

To be fair, though, I think their habit of giving lower midcard guys opportunities to prove themselves as world champions is a good thing. I certainly doubt Jeff Hardy and Christian would have ever become world champions in WWE before doing so in TNA.

X-Division hasn't "gone down with drain". Abyss winning the title was really stupid but one thing is sure: they had weight limit for that title but they screw that one up. They announced that weight limit is 220 pounds and about month ago Douglas Williams challenged. They didn't tell how much he weighted. I looked up to Wikipedia and it was more than 220 pounds. RVD also weights more than 220 pounds but he really deserved that title. They didn't know what they we're going to do with him.

And speaking about commentary. Jeremy Borash and Todd Keneley are both great commentators. They should commentate the whole show. Why? Because is borefest (like watching Orton's match) and Tazz speaks something weird.

It's TV title , no weight limit (by the way , loving Magnus and Joe feud) .

Women's title aren't dead now ?

Hating what they are doing with Tara and her title ... They are making have more importance that guy of Big Brother who sucks at all minimum skills to be a wrestler same or even more than Garrett Bischoff ...

^He's actually not that bad if you watch some of his matches on the independents . . He does need more work, but for someone that just started training to become a wrestler about 3-5 years ago, he's average. He was also funny on Big Brother. #BigBrother&ChillTownFTW

I agree with Dozer about the commentators, except for the part about them commentating for the whole show. Taz and Tenay are great together and should NOT be taken off tv.

Either way, what TNA is doing currently is still WAY more interesting than what WWE is doing.

What I like about TNA, is that they acknowledge WWE . . ON TV. I thought that was cool.

He's held the X-Division Championship before... I know that the TV title is a TV title, I didn't say the one he was currently holding.

Still. They lost their weight limit for the division a while ago. It's only Abyss, RVD, Kurt Angle, & Samoa Joe though. It's not like they have a lot of guys from different divisions in the roster going for that title. Besides, to get the Grand Slam or Triple Crown Championship, that belt is in the tiers to be able to get it.

TNA doesn't suck (IMO) . I used to think that it did until I sat down and watched it...
