      garbage no wonder tna is dead

    • wwetnadudez

      I feel like this set of tapings is going well like the previous one but I hope its time they start winding up the ECW guys.

        They’re really trying to target that ‘extreme’ demo… the question is, is there still a thurst for that? We have always complained about how TNA should be trying to be the alternative to WWE, and so I give them props for sort of doing that here… even if it does seem like they’re recycling what’s been done.

        • wwetnadudez

          Its fine to target that ‘extreme’ demo, just do it with the guys you already have, I mean they already have Bully/Abyss/Hardy/Bram who are all hardcore guys and I suppose Dreamer is always available due to his backstage role so why not just utilize them. I mean look at the Carter entourage, a whole bunch of WWE Rejects and Has Beens.

          • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

            I don’t know about that… Bateman was never a ‘been’ – can’t really call him a has been… Spud is his own guy – and arguably the most entertaining of the bunch.

            There’s always stuff to be critical about, but I think TNA is doing just fine.

            • wwetnadudez

              No doubt they’re doing fine but by Dixies entourage I was referring to Zeke, Snitsky etc

            • http://www.rabidpictures.com yrabadi

              Oh yeah, true. I think that was just a short-lived gimmick though… I think they’re on it for all of two episodes…

    • brad

      This actually looks really awesome but I wished Angle could’ve wrestled or at least left and go back to the WWE.

      the only x division guy with any depth/personality is Ion and he’s clearly a heel..so why is he teaming with manik and homicide who are clearly face?

      • Fantasma Del Guapo

        Well Homicide was still a heel before his hiatus, maybe Manik is also gonna turn.

        • raVen

          but he just came back for this short stint and it’s in NY the guy is for sure a fan favorite in that arena
