Firstly, I want to say that i'm not a TNA hater or in love with the WWE. I'm simply a wrestling fan who wants to watch good wrestling and be entertained.
Now on topic, TNA was started some 10 years ago by Jeff Jarrett. Its grew swiftly, until about a few years ago it was purchased by Dixie Carter.
1. The Roster -
TNA has one of the most impressive roster around. Wrestlers like AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Abyss, Pope, Samoa Joe are all massively talented. IMO, the only roster that would give TNA any competition in terms of wrestling ability would be ROH.
2. The Knockouts -
Anybody whose ever watched TNA knows that the knockouts are one of the highly rated segments on the show. They look hot, can cut a good promo, and can put on a pretty decent wrestling match.
3. The talent exchange -
This is one of the most interesting aspect of TNA. Because of the talent exchange, new talent from promotions such as AAA and NJPW appear on TNA programming. This brings diversity to the styles of wrestling being shown.
1. Lack of stability of storylines -
This I think we all know. Storylines in TNA are not stable. Face and heel turns occur every week without any genuine reason. Feuds are not brought to a proper ending.
2. Pushing of older guys -
This I don't understand. Despite having a well of talent, why is TNA intent on pushing guys like Hogan and Sting? They should retire or should be used as managers. How much entertaining can a match between Sting and Hogan get?
MY WISHLIST FOR TNA-
1. Bring back the old six sided ring. That was what made TNA unique.
2. Push homegrown talents such as AJ Styles and Bobby Roode, instead of ex-wcw and ex-wwe wrestlers who are past their prime.
3. Stop pushing wrestlers in their 50's and 60's. Wrestlers like Sting, Hogan and Flair should be used mainly as managers with occasional wrestling.
4. Start going on the road.
