    I cannot understand the Hulk Hogan hate. I mean I do not always agree with him. I was sick of him when he wrestled and always won. But he is trying to male money. His ex wife took so much from him. I do not care who is right or wrong. The fact is he is just trying to make money. Maybe he is secure. But in this bussiness of wrestling. Like him or not he did alot for it. And now where are all of these old champions? RVD but RVD most 25 years olds in wrestling cannot do the things that he does.

  2. Treck says:

    And no Hogan is not perfect. Made so many mistakes. But impact for a.couple of months has been great. I wish the internet wrestling community would get their heads out of their asses. You would think Hulk Hogan raped their girlfriend or something

He could care less about ANY of the Roster other than Brooke and Three , The Man is a ****-up and totally useless and a ****WADD !!!

    Like many have said, the problem in many cases is Dixie MUST take the bull by the horns and control the product. Even if she's merely a fan of wrestling, it wouldn't take a genius to take control and create one direction for the product, rather than the mess it consists of right now…

  4. jbcissom says:

    I would say, creatively, TNA is headed in the right direction long term. Morale is apparently up. Newer faces are being pushed.

    I just can't wait to see what they do with AJ Styles (I hope they don't bury him).

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      I have to disagree, creatively they're not in the right direction. Unfortunately you have to many people writing different things at once. This is the reason why there's far to much going on at once. You don't see this with WWE because of people like vince, they rule with an iron fist and have final say in what does or doesn't happen, and TNA lacks this.

      • Peckar says:

        So how the hell do you think multiple storylines is a bad thing? It creates interest in ALL the wrestlers instead of jut a select few. Not to mention most of the stories will be intertwining. YYou know, just like any other good tv programme does. Go back to watching your WWE. Tell me, if Vince is doing so much right at the moment. Why did they just record a record low ratings for Raw this week? Lowest in fifteen years on a non-holiday Raw.

      • tnadude says:

        Multiple story lines are a good thing – not a bad one. The reason the WWE has historically been #1 is because they present a strong mid-card. Other promotions (such as TNA) have historically been top heavy.

        Changing that trend is critical to the company's success. It gives people multiple reasons to tune in, and builds new stars. ROH has more storylines going than TNA, and they do it with a 1 hour show. We don't see every storyline every week, but that's not a major deal because they do a good job of reminding us when they are shown.

        Creatively, TNA just needs to finish what they started. They're getting better at it, but they still aren't perfect.

    • soyfenomenal says:

      You don't think AJ Styles is buried? The last win that actually meant something was against Matt Hardy nearly 2 years ago. TNA has been so busy dicking around with Styles/Daniels that they haven't really done anything decent with Styles. A shame.

      • Matt Hardy says:

        AJ Styles is so buried at this point, that if I were he, I would simply retire when my contract with TNA was finished. Where TNA is right now as a company with extensive travel away from family and amount of booking dates, comparative to what he allegedly makes in the $150,000 to $200,000 range, there are simply better jobs out there when taking into consideration travel expenses, high risk medical insurance and lost personal time. This is a fairly accurate estimation in my opinion, based on he fact that the average TNA midcarder earns about $ 500 an appearance before expenses. He would at most earn around quadruple that amount, which is about maximum of what the very biggest names can demand on the indy market.

        He's on the downside of both his creative potential with TNA and as a consequence, his earning potential as well. The law of diminishing returns is starting to take effect and means he is now working more for less reward. At this point he is never going to reach the big money in TNA that guys like Kurt Angle, Sting, Hogan, RVD and Jeff Hardy have reportedly been favored with, because they allegedly bring established name value and outside exposure to TNA.

        • tnadude says:

          Seriously dude – get a new handle…

          I agree with you that his wrestling isn't worth the money. I'd further your argument by saying I wouldn't start at all for precisely that reason. The risks are far greater than the rewards.

          But AJ has a lot left to do in TNA. He's stale because he refuses to be a heel, and that's what has held him back. It looks like they've finally convinced him to make a heel run – which is precisely what he needs.

          • Matt Hardy says:

            AJ has been bounced between heel and face now for about 6 solid years. That IS! the problem, not the solution. AJ is a terrible heel btw, he always has been. The only gimmick he has ever had is the cocky heel, but he is about the 6th string in that role currently in TNA. Aries is simply better at it, Roode is better at it, Daniels and Kazarian are better at it, Magnus is better at it, Joey Ryan is better at it. The guy has been twisted and turned, pushed and depushed so many times that his value is lower now than what it was when TNA was a small company with very little exposure. TNA simply ruined AJ styles like they ruined Joe.

  5. Treck says:

    Aj as a face is pathetic. He has never had any mic skills. And yes he does amazing things but he does those same moves every match. His mic skills are just terrible. Make him heel

    And the person crapping on Dixie Carter quit reading IWC zombie pages and make up your own mind. For me TNA has been on fire.

    • hangers says:

      He had the chance to be heel with the Flair angle but he thought he new better, well look how far its got him. I love AJ but talent can only get you so far…

    • tnadude says:

      EXACTLY. Also agree with @hangers point on AJ staying face.

    • Matt Hardy says:

      You do realize that being able to talk is more important for a heel don't you? AJ had one thing that sold and that was his athleticism and unique wrestling ability. That translates into to face bub, not heel. Faces don't necessarily have to be great talkers Jeff Hardy is by far worse than AJ and he was super over in WWE, same with guys like Bret Hart, Ricky Steamboat, Mysterio etc. Heels are built to lose and they have to have an identifiable schtick that sets them distinctly apart or they are just jobbers.

      • tnadude says:

        You are right – talking is more important when you are a heel. But it's also a h3ll of a lot easier to get people to hate you than to like you. Look at Bobby Roode – he was terrible on the mic as a face. All he did was yap about "respect". They turned him heel, and the rest is history.

        And that's what Treck is referring to.

        • Matt Hardy says:

          That is because Bobby Roode is a natural heel and a terrible face. He was always the weak link in Beer Money when they were a face tag team and was great when they were a heel tag team. There is nothing noteworthy about him as a babyface, Nobody wants to see Bobby Roode making comebacks, but he makes a pretty decent heel. Neither he or AJ is like James storm who can be effective at either being a heel or babyface. AJ is a more natural face than Storm and Roode is a more natural heel, but Cowboy is more versatile.

  6. Treck says:

    And how is the product failingz? Old wrestlers? Lol that wisetale. The booking? Then why is wwe copying them?

  7. Treck says:

    My hands are cold. But you know what I typed :)

  8. hangers says:

    Too much Hogan and his daughter on Impact at the moment to the detriment of the ratings.

    • Peckar says:

      As long as Aries gets to burn them. I'm all for it. Roll on Aries dropping some lines about the porn movie. Please,please please please…

      • hangers says:

        You know it's scripted right, and Hogan has the say on regards to the script. If Hogan wasnt such an egomaniac he'd turn himself heel again and be a kind of McMahon character and Brooke like a Stephanie. Unfortunately Hogan still thinks we give a damn about how he held the strap 3 decades ago…

        • Peckar says:

          You do know they have a storyline to keep but a lot of it is adlib right? Pretty obvious when they exchange in the ring. I would not be suprised if what you said actually happens given the direction of the whole show seems to be getting better. Basically just letting Aries do whatever the fuck he wants. If you seen his work in ROH, you would recognise that fact.

        • tnadude says:

          Hogan as a heel in TNA was a disaster. A total bleeping disaster.

          • Peckar says:

            What about in WCW? How did he do there?

          • hangers says:

            Hogan has never really been a full on heel so far in TNA anything to the extent of his time in WCW. The only way they can increase the ratings with Hogan there is turn the man in to a full on heel to an even higher level than WCW.

            I understand that they do ad-lib a fair bit, but the storyline itself is scripted and I doubt very much he'd be allowed to mention the sex tape at this stage but hey, I'd love to be proven wrong. I would have preferred Aries to be still holding the strap rather than give it to Hardy in the hope he re-signs with TNA.

          • Peckar says:

            Aries is off the rails. I think if someone gave him the nod to do it, we would see some controversy. Whats EB say about that? Makes money lol Time will tell. Given this angle, we won't have to wait too long.

          • tnadude says:

            He was epic. Frankly, he had the best heel run ever. My favorite time in wrestling history. But he can't reproduce it at this point in his career because he can no longer be the point man. He can't be the WC that always loses but still holds onto the belt.

            At this point, he's good for nostalgia. And there are a lot of us that appreciate it. As a face, he can show up at the end of a match at BFG, "Hulk Up", and get the loudest pop of the night. As a heel – what does he have left?

          • Peckar says:

            You are probably right. Guess we will see. I just get a little tired of his face persona. Its so dated. He gets way too much airtimr IMO. Especially when someone like Mr Anderson gets none.

  9. Real Deal Heel says:

    So…hmm…I luv some Hogan…..but they got rid of Russo….who in the F is he blaming exactly?

  10. Sturk says:

    It's cool that he thanked her, it shows that he's not so high and mighty on his own pedistool. In wrestling, those grown men are so petty and childish. I bet they run and tell the boss stuff so much and she has to punish folks etc. You have to think wrestlers are really childish.. Think of all the arguing and down talking they have done to eachother over the years so imagine running a wrestling company and having to deal with it. So it's good he thanks her.

  11. Larry_The_Dwarf says:

    Dixie and TNA Management need a firmer grip on the company and need to show a set if they plan on keeping the company going !!! Giving HH all the power is not the answer , and putting the TNA World Title on him would be the bitter end !!!
