Like a House Afire (ep. 17): TNA doesn't deserve their latest chance, but here's how they should make the most of it

Welcome to the not-at-all-regularly scheduled 17th episode of Like a House Afire, a frequent video-cast that runs down some hot topics in the world of pro wrestling with opinion and analysis from yours truly.

The week's big non-WWE news, and probably the most important item for the pro wrestling industry, is TNA's new television deal. I explain a few reasons why I was okay with their going away (at least in their current form), and why no matter how they spin, the Destination America deal is not a good thing (it's only not the worst thing).

Then, I ramble on with what I would do if I were in charge...which is just another voice telling them to not be WWE-lite, but hopefully with a few specific examples to try.

Here's some background on the buzz that drove this episode:

Keith Harris' analysis from before the announcement
