I'm pretty sure they will fail too and I'm no mark I'm a wrestling fan and believe me I want TNA to succeed but the goofy Hogan segments,badly worked female matches(although better than Raw diva matches) and old wrestlers and short Xdivision matches annoy me and Hogan and Flair were bleeding on each other the first 5 minutes of the match which grossed me out a bit.And TNA fans say I should support TNA because it will help make the business better I say bullshit to that I'm not wasting more of my time.And I know Raw isn't better but I've been watching since I was 8 I'm now 20 and believe me I wish I could quit watching but for me it's like a drug every time at 11:07 I say never again .But come 9:00 on Monday I get the shakes so I waste all of my time trying to recapture my first high knowing Im hurting myself.But anyway Raw doesn't have to try they can put out as many filler shows as they want and TNA can't keep debuting Jeff Hardy and Sting every Monday and I'm not watching something I don't like.
TNA should get their shit together before they try to take on WWE. They had something going for them when they didn't go with the conventional ring, but they fucked that up. Having the ring attached to the stage was a terrible decision. They have very talented men and women, but during a lot of their matches feels like I'm watching them wait for their cue to do something. On Hulks first night they kept saying he was bringing a surprise guest with him and then Rick Flair showed up and I thought that's who it was. Then it ended up being Eric Bishof and I couldn't help but say "who gives a shit". Nothing against Eric but I figure they would make a bigger deal about Flair. Their entire show still feels more like a WCW reunion than something new anyway. I see complete failure in their future as performers trade back and forward between companies. Who knows they might shock us all and actually be real competition for WWE.
I'll call this a war when it actually is one. TNA isn't even close to WWE in ratings, when it actually starts to be a legit threat, I'll be interested. Now it may sound like I'm a WWE mark here, trust me I'm not, I don't watch wrestling anywhere near as much as I used to. I've really tried to like TNA, but I don't. TNA to me just doesn't know how to book and tell decent stories. WWE is a shell of what it once was, but it can still tell decent stories and do some good psychology in the matches. TNA is just a jumbled mess in my opinion. I would love to support it and help it be a good threat to wwe, because that would only make WWE better, but I'm not going to watch something I don't like and find boring.
I think WWE will definitely win this 1. Even though WWE's new PG era ain't got shit on the Attitude era, i still find it very exciting a lot of times(Except for WWE:NXT). I have quite a few favorite wrestlers there, like Randy Orton, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Khali, Big Show, John Cena(Not the toughest wrestler, but still pretty exciting to watch to me), etc. Plus, i tried to watch an episode of TNA to see if i could get into it, and i found myself watchin this crap thinkin"This boring shit, how the hell did they get any fans?" Speakin of WWE and TNA, Jeff Hardy needs to come back to WWE.
