It's official; I have lost complete faith in TNA.
It seems like every time the company moves forward, it takes way too many steps backwards. Nobody is interested in watching the live shows, the writers lean towards majority of the ex-WWE talent, and the ratings are not good. No wonder WWE is kicking ass each and every week because they have the resources and the leadership, TNA doesn't.
Here's a few things from a fan's perspective: “Dixie Carter seemingly has no problem with releasing several TNA
wrestlers for the sake of cutting costs. Maybe she wouldn’t have to
worry about costs if she didn’t throw stupidly large amounts of money to
non-wrestlers. All the respect in the world to Rampage Jackson and Tito
Ortiz but what have they done to increase awareness for TNA? It’s
becoming clearer and clearer that this woman has no idea how to run a
wrestling company. She has all the business sense of a sixth grader and
sooner or later, Dixie will no longer be able to rely on Jarrett’s bank
While that may be honest, people have been ching in with their opinion on the disastrousstate of TNA.
As I said in my article “Knockouts Knocked Down," I addressed the following about the disintegrating Knockouts division; “Back then, there were so many talent women on the TNA roster like Awesome Kong, Angelina Love, Sarita, Velvet Sky, Traci Brooks, ODB, Tara, Mickie James, Gail Kim and many others too long too list here. These women have always put on tremendous matches and give it 110% in the ring. They even outperformed the guys in TNA with their athleticism and beauty. Their Knockouts division was better than the WWE Divas division.
"Now all that is left is just Gail, ODB, Mickie, Velvet, and Miss Tessmacher to keep this division alive. Kong is gone. Angelina is gone. Traci is gone. Sarita is gone. Tara is gone and she said she will never return to TNA. Madison Rayne is gone. And Taryn Terrell is out for a while. While the lack of depth is why the fans lost faith in TNA, look at the WWE Divas. They have what the Knockouts lack: talent and depth. Look at the SHIMMER roster as well. They certainly have what the Knockouts lack as well: Lots of amazing talent, great depth, and former Knockouts Alissa Flash and Ayako Hamada helped bring SHIMMER to international prominence.
"It's up to you if you lost faith in the Knockouts division. I don't see that division succeeding if you have five women on your roster. It comes off with failing marks and needs to be addressed very soon."
So far, this and many other things are not addressed because the Internet Wrestling Community bash Dixie Carter for not only for hiring former WWE talent, but also for bringing in MMA stars. Watching it right now is just plain insufferable, and as of right now, TNA is definitely on it's last legs and there's no way it's gonna get up from bad publicity.
You fans shouldn't punish the performers, not the people who came from WWE; punish the bookers, the writers, the front office, hell, even make Dixie Carter int a pariah. TNA has been around for 11 years, and it's nowhere near the WWE's level. That's the way it is, and that's the way it'll stay. The ruthless IWC will see the promotion fold due to lack of interest.
The ship is completely sinking, and if things don't turn around soon, look for some of these guys to go to another promotion with three letters: ROH.
