Well it actually does make sense if you watched the PPV and watch impact every week then you would see the transformation of booker t turning heel.  i don't think they should all of a sudden put him back with roode though from whatyou were talking about i mean they could keep those 2 both heel and hate each other at the same time.

Impact was the best wrestling show on no PPV TV i have seen in a very long time. i recommend it to anyone.

I don't think TNA sucks. i think TNA is quite good. but they make bad choices sometimes and never seem to stay good when they got it right.

Of course a lot of people are gonna bash TNA. its not there cup of tea. Wrestling from other country isn't my cup of tea. but TNA has been good ever since sacrifice. with a few minor bad things.IMO.



Well I don't watch Impact everyweek or the PPV because for the most part it sucks.. SO Booker's turn may have made sense. BUT... They shouldn't have him woth Roode at all! IN the storyline Roode broke Sharmell's jaw. So weather Booker is a heel or not you don't team him with Roode for a long time. It just doesn't make sense at all.

TAG TEAM EXCELLENCE!

If Booker T is a good heel he can get the hometown crowd to turn on him. Edge is able to do that in Canada for the most part.

Nice of you to say.

That aside, I have no wish to endorse this thread topic with a response or even care about it's existence, which is not to make a point, but make an argument.


I don't think I've ever agreed with you more, lol.

But it truly does suck for the most part, as has been agreed upon in this thread.


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

Just saying it sucks is simply retarded.especially with all of you who back WWE for there entertainment you think just because its not WWE it sucks.when in real life TNA may be putting a better show on then WWE you're just to stuck on what you're used to to really give it a chance.

Maybe if you guys actually sat down and watched TNA every week then you would would maybe have a right to say what sucks and what doesn't. i mean if someone came on here and didn't watch WWE sucked we would be all over them.

Point is unless you actually watch the product then don't say it sucks because you aren't making any legit argument that it does.

The thing is I actually do watch the product... I don't watch it every week but I watch enough of it to know that TNA as a promotion has no credibility. We discussed this. They have some good wrestlers and yes they've done some good things with guys like Joe, etc, but I'm sorry, once you need to start hiring ex-WWE guys and beyond that STEAL WWE's old gimmicks, I don't understand how you want me to sit through that week after week in order to give you a legitimate opinion.

You talk about Booker T's slow transition to heel, and I've heard how TNA likes to slowly plant the seeds for feuds and stuff like that, but that's not how it works in wrestling. People don't watch you every single week and they may not watch full shows, and it's because of that. You need hotshot angles and stuff like that to attract people to watch your shows. Otherwise no one will.

So I'm sorry, you can't tell me I need to watch TNA every single week and every moment of the product in order to have an opinion about it. And frankly, I don't think anyone needs to look past Shark Boy or Jay Lethal in order to see that. Or Kevin Nash still being there, or Kurt Angle wrestling with a neck injury and TNA barely telling him to sit a show out, or burying guys like Daniels, etc, etc.

For every good decision TNA has made, they've made at least 5 stupid ones.

Of course they have to have some guys that are already known like the former WWE guys to try to attract more of the casual fan that already know them. i have no problem with TNA having nash or angle or any ex WWE guy as long as they are main event type guys and not guys like scotty too hottie or rikishi or some one like that.

and as for stealing gimmicks it isn't really stealing gimmicks with lethal and shark boy its more to try to be funny and sometimes it is you just have to have a open mind and not get so offended by it.

but what im saying is you can't casually watch TNA and just say it sucks. yes its something a bit different and they need to improve on some stuff but to say it just sucks isn't right. and picking out little things like shark boy is retarded to judge it on. if people picked out little things about WWE you would defend it to the moon and back.

Anyways the point it TNA doesn't "Suck" thats stupid to say, if you don't like it you can say that but i mean don't say that the whole product sucks just because theer are a few things they need to fix.

I still don't understand why I can't be of the opinion that it sucks... Why would I avidly watch something that I dind't like and thought wasn't good? As a knowledgeable wrestling fan I think I've watched enough wrestling in my day to say whether something is good or not. people have opinions on RAW every week but they don't necessarily watch every hour of WWE programming. And it's clear that TNA has a ton of problems both within their organization and on screen when their product comes out.

To tell me that I can't have an opinion on TNA sucking for the most part is stupid, I can think what I want and a lot of people will agree with me that TNA has little to no entertainment value.

I watched about 5 minutes one time, but I wasn't keen on it either. I think what I might do is record it one day and just make myself watch it all the way through. Then I can make an informed decision, rather than just saying I don't like it. (I don't think I will like it though, sorry)

TNA has engouth talent to be good. They really do with all the young up and comers they have and all of the soild veterans they have as well. But the creative and booking is just done so horrible it's not even funny... First you have Sharkboy and his Austin rip-off gimmick, then you have Sonjay Dutt and his "Guru" gimmick and finally Jay Lethal as Macho Man! Then ontop of the stupid gimmick they give people there booking isn't so great, hell I have seen e-fed booked and written better then TNA!

Plain and simple they need to drop Russo he is behind all this horseshit booking and gimmicks. They need to change something up...

Ah see there it is. As soon as I see Russo's name it brings back bad memories.
He seems to have no awareness of how ridiculous the things he does are. He makes mistake after mistake and never learns.
Now I'm tempted to watch just to see what he does next!

As a business, TNA is making some of the most intelligent decisions they could make. HOWEVER, I have to agree with Prax that regarding the wrestling product, they make approx 5 dumb decisions for every good 1.
