So since the 'Orlando Screwjob' episode i've been tuning into TNA to try and get into the programming, to see if the Hogan & Bischoff era could be the dawn of a new era for TNA but as of yet i've yet to be impressed by the vast majority of the program.
They should practice what they preach with this whole 'We Are Wrestling' shtick because from what i've seen so far, because at best is comparable to a standard RAW that gets shat on by the IWC. Infact the best piece of action i've seen in my 3 weeks of watching iMPACT was the six man tag on the 28th Januart with Generation Me & Red vs MCMG & Kendrick and that was just a two and a half minute spotfest with no storytelling whatsoever.
Where's the focus on the X-Divison? Where's the vastly superior to the Diva's, KO Division?
Just some random observations aswell i'm gonna throw out there.
AJ Styles pairing with Flair just seems awkward as he doesn't have the charisma to pull it off from what i've seen. He just seems like a natural babyface who can be over for his 'phenomenal' in-ring style but surely by pairing himself with Flair he's going to have to become alot more dirty and lose the high flying action which is the reason why people even liked him in the first place.
From what i've read, Hogan & Bischoff are high on The Pope, but how does he go from losing on PPV to Wolfe, to losing on iMPACT to Orlando Jordan (URGH) to beating the World Champ? Seems very strange to me.
Kevin Nash vs Mick Foley as your main event, seriously? That was a fucking abortion of a "match" Never ever do that again.
I'm going to give them a chance and keep watching for a while yet as it seems as though they are trying to use alot of the guys they have to try an assess them so right now they have no clear direction until they presumably make some roster cuts, but that doesn't make up for the sub-par in ring action.
What are your thoughts since this dawning of a new era?
