Can anyone actually tell me what is going on in TNA? I don't get or understand it. Every week it gets more chaotic and stupid...With all that talent too...Watching it makes my head hurt.
FIRSTLY: The 3.3.11 Video knock off of WWE's 2.21.11!
SECONDLY: Another title change...So lets see Anderson had the title 1 month....Lost it....Hardy has it for 2 weeks...Loses it to Sting?
STABLES: Immortal, They, Fortune... WHATEVER! So the HEEL stable which was HUGE now consists of who? Hardys, Jarrett, Rob Terry, Gunner & Murphy...Vs more Faces than I can count; AJ, Beer Money, Kaz, Crimson, Angle, Steiner, Anderson, RVD and Sting!?
Matt Morgan: His angle Vs Immortal just got dropped, he was fighting them weekly and wasn't involved in the THEY angle at all! Then he gets randomly jumped by Hernadez. TNA dropped the Ball AGAIN!
THEY: Should have been AJ turning face, siding with Angle, Crimson, RVD, Anderson, Morgan and Sting.
ALIGNMENT: They then have had Anderson (FACE) attack Sting (Face) backstage and team up with Hardy (Heel!) Aginst Sting and RVD, then have him hit Hardy with the Mic Check. What the fuck kinda booking is that?
RUN INS: TNA far too many run-ins, the ones in the woman's matches over the next two Impacts is mind boggling!
THE SHORE: JUST STOP WITH JERSEY SHORE BULLSHIT PLEASE!
SAMOA JOE: Has been ruined by bad booking! His feud with the very talented POPE just isn't working and is really piss poor...
TEAM 3D: Stop I cant watch another match with Bubba Vs Devon!!! It's terrible!
AJ STYLES: The leader of Fourtune...Stuck feuding Matt Hardy and Ric Flair? WHAT?
X-DIVISION: TNA Have let it become stale, the matches are hurried, the feuds are not there and there is no TV time for theses guys apart from Kaz...Who doesn't have someone from Immortal to feud because they don't have ANY X-Div wrestlers in the stable.
STEROIDS: Scott Steiner is roided to the eyes, but yet he cuts a promo stating Rob Terry is "A few "vitamins" short of a chemical breakdown."
BRITS: The treatment of Desmond Wolfe, Doug Williams and Magnus is a joke, I happen to have met Doug Williams & Nick Aldis (Magnus)a few times and they are both top guys.
SRIOUSLY TNA HIRE ME...I'LL TURN THE COMPANY ROUND!
DEAL WITH IT!

Where TNA is going wrong is that in bringing in Bischoff and Hogan, they brought in people to return to the style of booking that made WCW and the WWE successful.
What made TNA successful (relatively) was by offering a slightly higher calibre of wrestling at the top end, with guys like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe who could actually, y'know, work. They emphasised things that the WWE does very badly, like tag team wrestling and cruiserweights.
Hogan is a mark for himself in a way that would make Triple H say, "Whoah, hold on man." He also pops a rating for a few weeks, and then people realise he's an egomaniacal fuckbag with all the wrestling ability of a boiled cabbage and the ratings drop again.
Bischoff is a better businessman than a booker.
You can overbook a federation. People watch wrestling to see some semblance of a storyline, but the point, at the end of the day, is to see two guys who hate each other attempt to stave each other's heads in.
Of course if you want to watch wrestling aimed at people who appreciate their wrestling, you have to do without the pyro and the huge crowds, and some people are such a mark for a big crowd that they may as well watch a Miley Cystitis or Justin Bubole show.
Personally i will persevere with TNA because even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while and they have such an array of talent in the midcard that you get fantastic matches DESPITE the booking once in a blue moon, rather than the consistent torrent of average the WWE serves up.
And then I will watch ROH and appreciate guys who can actually wrestle, CHIKARA and watch some proper flippy floppy stuff with some plot that is so unbeleivably silly that it warps it's way back round to quality and EVOLVE so I can watch some wrestling with guarenteed NO plot. And DGUSA so I can watch top class Japanese guys with american commentary. And then Japanese federations, the odd bit of lucha from Mexico and other random wrestling because damnit, I MARK FOR NO FEDERATION, I MARK FOR GOOD WRESTLING.
