This is a challenge to all of the wrestling writers on Bleacher Report and to the IWC in general. I constantly read the articles and hear the wrestling pundits saying that TNA needs to make changes. What annoys me is that I NEVER hear specifics. People say be different from WWE. OK. How? What would you do that WWE doesn't do? Why would you do it and why do you think it would be a successful business model? Just because it's different from WWE doesn't mean it will achieve that level of success that you want.  Those idiots that do ...

I got into a discussion with some other wrestling fans this week, and I’d like to hear your opinion on it the topic we discussed.The statement that I made was this: When you really get down to the truth of the matter, past all the bull about bookers, and veterans, and WWE rejects, the IWC wants TNA to just be Ring of Honor with a bigger budget.  However, that isn’t what TNA wants to be. They want to be on par with WWE. They want to be what WCW was in 1997 and 1998. They want mainstream attention. They want ...

About two months ago the rumors were abound that Kevin Nash and Booker T would be returning to TNA to reform the Main Event Mafia. However, they instead returned to WWE at the Royal Rumble. Booker has since become a commentator on Smackdown. We haven’t seen Nash on TV but it’s rumored that he has signed a legends deal. The IWC got several weeks of conversation out of this. From discussions on what they would do in WWE to discussions about if the move was good or bad for TNA. However, one very important discussion that I haven’t heard anyone talk ...

Is there an identity for TNA?

Posted by troy smith On February - 27 - 2011
I ask this question because the IWC always complains about TNA copying WWE. In many cases those complaints are justified. But, one thing they say that always leaves me puzzled is “TNA needs to be TNA”  Well, what does that mean?An identity is unique. I am my own person and I don’t let others dictate who I am.It seems as though whenever people talk about what TNA should be, it is dictated by what WWE is. Is that it? Do you just want TNA to do whatever WWE isn’t doing? How can they grow as a company with that mentality?Some say ...
