    Another dumb move by TNA. There are so many worthless talents or overpaid talents in TNA that letting the "little" guys go makes no sense. TNA could release someone like Mr. Anderson and hold on to probably at least 3 of the talents they've let go. I realize that TNA is losing money since going live, but it would make more long term sense to let guys like Hogan, Sting, Anderson, and Hardy go than all these lower card guys. Now I understand that TNA uses the bigger name guys to help sell their shows, but tough times call for tough choices.

    This just proves that Gutcheck is a joke

    The purpose of Gutcheck is to find

    New talent , get them trained , cause they’re

    The future TNA stars who’s going to

    Replace people like AJ Styles , Robert Rhoode

    Samoa Joe when they get older , and don’t

    Want to wrestle anymore or can’t wrestle

    Cause of the tole they put in the bodies

    TNA needs to long @ the long term

    Picture like look ahead 15 years from

    Know is Daniels going to be wrestling

    Then what about Kazarian ?

    Taking Impact on the road was a bad idea!

    • godoftna says:

      No, taking IMPACT on the road was a good idea. TNA knew from the beginning that it was a big risk, and like any risks, some pay off and some don't. It's going to take time for TNA to turn things around, and in the mean time, TNA needs to make some BIG cuts with some BIG name talents. As I've said, it's time to part ways with Hogan(both Hulk AND Brooke), Sting, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, and Mr. Anderson. Angle could stay as he's still the best worker of the bunch, but the rest are major draws on the companies finances. With the money that Hogan and Sting have made in their careers, they should be able to afford their own air fare(and maybe they do pay their own way, idk) and the money they make each year(Sting reportedly makes $500k/year) is quite a lot. Take the money saved from these performers, put the money into advertising(tv, newspaper, magazines, radio) and heavily promote the company as much as they can. While the big names help sell shows NOW, in the long term, this would make better business sense for the company.

        your thoughts are respectable but please dont include kurt angle in these statements.

        and btw hardy is a big name globally and he brings merchandising ;
        hogan brings sponsors is still a brand globally.i can assure you here where i live ,if some old wrestling fans see hogan nowdays on free tv again they will follow the product;im speaking about new/old wrestling fans that nowdays dont watch wrestling anymore

      • nicholal79 says:

        If it was a good idea TNA wouldn't be losing money and releasing young talent!

        • hangers says:

          TNA would still be losing money as they are paying too much currently for the top guys who really aren't drawing like their pay packets indicate they should.. I think the road for impact was a bad idea though, I'd rather see them alternate between a couple of venues, say US Orlando and US LA and perhaps Vegas and do three months in the one location straight, then switch and so on..

    I love how everyone says TNA is losing money . How do you know that , they are a private company. I heard they where doing ok . Sting and hogan still get the biggest pops of the night normally . I know TNA need to make new stars b ut york was already old .

    • hangers says:

      Seriously, if Sting or Hogan won the title tomorrow, would anyone outside of TNA fans care? Aries and Roode have been the best champions TNA has had over the past couple of years yet they get shoved into a tag team whilst Bully battles Sting and the old guard……boring..

    pity, really liked him, and he could draw a surprising amount.
