Kevin Nash Has Harsh Comments For TNA – Details

Kevin Nash posted the following comments on Twitter, discussing issues with TNA. Here is what he had to say…

When WWE show cases a reality show around Mania how can the TNA show not look weak.I work indy shows every weekend that out draw TNA …sad

TNA has great talent just no direction. Let Jeff Jarrett become part of the process and watch the numbers.

WCW had much deeper pockets. TNA never used the benefits of s studio.Green screen could have made The Impact Zone 15 000.

Spike has to much control but Dixie gets the heat.

Putting UFC guys in TNA makes less sense then putting TNA guys in UFC

    You know he is right even WWE secondary shows have higher ratings then impact. Someone needs to step up their game or get left behind!

    • jbcissom says:

      Raw and Smackdown are the only WWE shows that out-rate and are viewed by larger audiences… and Smackdown is getting really close to Impact!'s numbers.

      • TwIsTeD_EnEmY says:

        They have a new Diva's show that is out-rating TNA by quite a bit currently, but that might be because it only debuted a few weeks ago

  2. HolsG says:

    But it's also wrestlers screwing TNA over (signing with WWE when he planned to return to TNA) that are helping the company struggle – prick!

    • Bigmike885 says:

      Yes..he should have stayed in tna for a bloated salary to do very little..don't be bitter because he took one last shot (failed as it may have been) at a top run in WWE…Nash already helped one company (both good and bad) he had no resposability to help TNA…

      • tnadude says:

        The "at a top run in WWE" is a joke, right? You can't be serious that VKM & HHH would possibly have given him a legitimate shot as a main-eventer?

        Use him to put over younger guys with more talent, maybe? Yeah. Absolutely.

        But a top-run? SMH…

        • rabid says:

          Truth is he is right to a certain extent .. jarrett understood the talent and made them better and that what made tna great .. look what nash did for some of the younger guys like alex shelly thats on thing ive always respected abt guys like nash and jarrett they understand the talent and that its the talent that gets over not the writers.. take scsa for example say hes the way he is but a soft spoken individual and a writer wrote everything from his personality to his words it wouldbt have worked.. rampage has always stated he was a wrestling fan. Titos gonna be one and done and king mo has been on a handful of shows.

        • Bigmike885 says:

          You know in his mind he thought he was going to get a main event run (hell they did inject him straight into the cm punk story line).Sent from my iPhone

      • jbcissom says:

        I remember Nash saying in an interview one of the reasons he stayed in TNA was because they were ok with him being gray, and that his wife loved that.

        That right there says a lot about the man's character.

  3. Dante_Cross says:

    Eh, not really harsh–harsh reality maybe. Though the green screen idea would make them look cheap, he could very well be right about Jarrett. When he ran creative, TNA had it's best years.

  4. TheBringer92 says:

    Bring Jeff Jarrett back

  5. ricky_No1 says:

    For once i fully agree with nash but Jarrett had the rains and it made little difference to the overall product.

  6. tnadude says:

    I'd hardly call his criticisms harsh.

    It was 100% constructive criticism. He even offered solutions. How many people around here do that? Not many, that's for sure.

    Not saying I agree with him completely (although I do hope the green screen idea was at least explored), but gotta respect the fact that he was constructive.

    Oh, BTW – not a Nash fan at all… Never was.

  7. TwIsTeD_EnEmY says:

    I get so sick of Nash running his big mouth, but some of the stuff he's saying here I complete agree with

    • jbcissom says:

      Here's the thing… Nash has a pretty good creative mind… as long as he's not an on-screen character. He's a lot like Paul Heyman… great creative mind… extremely full of himself and looking for the next big payday.

      • tnadude says:


        And that's exactly what will keep him from ever becoming a booker. We all know he **can** do the job. The problem is he'll push whoever becomes his buddy instead of the guy that can carry the company…

        It's a shame, really… He could have had a decent career in management.

  8. Sturk says:

    TNA creative years was will Jarrett ran it. It was during the Christian Cage era.

  9. 1Risky1 says:

    I agree about Spike, they should try to get another network

    • jbcissom says:

      Easier said than done. USA, which is the top rated and viewed channel on cable/satellite tv, is starting to see the market for WWE get smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller.

      Look at RoH and Sinclair TV. I've actually heard less about RoH since that deal went through.

      • JoshuaTNA says:

        Advertisers and networks are not looking at a wrestling market, All they care about is ratings and Honestly wrestling shows are holding their own in this day and age. TNA is doing great by their networks standards and so is WWE. Since TNA is Spikes top rated show they shouldn't have that hard of a problem finding another network, Hey UFC did it and TNA were beating them by 300,000 viewers every week. The problem is that TNA and Spike are in a "sticky" situation were they maybe stuck together considering Spike are the ones who pay Hulk Hogan and allot of other things, Spike has smartly done this to ensure TNA won't leave them cause if TNA does leave their Highest rated show would be bellator which only draws about 700,000 viewers on a good day which would be a Disaster -_-

        • jbcissom says:

          Actually, if you take a look at both promotions and the big picture, the WWE has been falling in viewership and ratings a lot longer than TNA has. In the past two months, it seems WWE has plateaued the plummet hovering in the 2.9's with just under 4 million viewers for Raw. Smackdown does under the 2.0's for ratings with half the viewership. For what… 5 years now… TNA has stayed in the .9 – 1.1 rating range with roughly 1.1 – 1.4 million viewers. Five years ago, WWE Raw was doing numbers in the 5.0's with viewership in the 5+ million range.

          I never really thought of the TNA-Spike relationship in how you've presented it… at least not that deep and thorough. Makes a lot of sense now.

        • Jon says:

          Reality check: name one network _that is Spike's size or larger in some way_ that would legitimately even consider TNA (or any pro wrestling product not named Raw frankly) for more than two seconds.

          There isn't one. That's not a knock on TNA, that's just the reality of the TV landscape right now.

    • tna24 says:

      for what it worth tna better off with spike, wrestling not what it use to be no one going to be jumping at tna to get their show. if they had better offers i think they would of left a long time ago. we need to give up on them leaving spike and just hope for the best. the product needs to change before they can think of leaving spike

  10. Ryan says:

    What does green screen mean??

  11. jbcissom says:

    I agree whole-heartedly with everything he said except for the production of Impact!. I know WWE is better, but they've also been around a lot longer (50+ years).

    • tna24 says:

      what does nash know all he care about him self and what best for him. green screen stuff would just make tna look fake. they need to make the product look real not fake.

      • jbcissom says:

        I had forgotten about the green screen stuff when I said that. Completely agree with you on that.

        A week ago, I watched the entire Sting-Hollywood Hogan feud on YouTube… and it was shocking to see some of the arenas that WCW started in. Really small venues, but they were packed and sold out.

  12. annil8or4321 says:

    totally agree on the mma guys being brought in

    • tna24 says:

      what wrong with that, wwe had mma guys for years ken shamrock ring a bell,. if their use right there nothing wrong with them in tna

  13. Rated_Maxx says:

    If Spike didn't put demands on TNA I bet they would get higher ratings. I believe its the network that wants certain names like Hogan and the MMA guys.

    • tna24 says:

      but you need some big names to help with the show. a product of little to no names might not do so well and MMA guys can do well if use right just like how ken shamrock work so well for wwe .

      • Rated_Maxx says:

        I agree but tna shouldn't be bringing in so many Monday night war guys. If spike would let tna do what they want plus give them multiple shows I bet they could be a close second behind the wwe instead of a long distance second.

  14. hangers says:

    All sounds fair enough to me actually…

  15. whatsup121 says:

    basically he's saying get Jeff Jarrett back
    what the fans are saying get Jeff Jarrett back
    hey Dixie are you noticing what people are saying ?

  16. nwoforlife says:

    tna has a problem but its not the talent its not the show they do because they put on just as good and sometimes better then wwe the rating reflect spike more then tna as for Jeff Jarrett could care less ether way he was a good mid card guy that's about it was rvd not saying the same shit about wwe not long ago and as far as Nash goes for life brother but you took the wwe money and ran so when was you on tv last

  17. TheSuperMan says:

    I haven’t taken TNA seriously since the six sided ring was taken away.

  18. MonkeyWrestling says:

    Bring Stone Cold and The Rock and let them have one last feud together in TNA now that can put them on the map over night
