TNA Creative's Cageside Evaluation

Their name is TNA Creative and Cageside Seats readers have reported back on what they love and loathe about TNA's brain trust. Here's the full evaluation.

Impact Wrestling

What you loved:

  1. X-Division - Many of the best matches in the history of the company were born of this concept
  2. Women's Division - There was a time when it was outpacing anything the men have done.
  3. Older Booking - There was a time, believe it or not, when not only was it bearable you could say it was good!
  4. Comedy - Whether it's intentional or not, TNA does comedy well. Examples: the EGO Hall of Fame and Black Machismo.
  5. Innovative Ideas - Along with the X-Division itself, option C was great way to propel new stars to the main event scene. Also, Feast or Fired provided for some interesting storylines.

Best comment comes via beckett929:

"The roster is very thin (like maybe 27-30 guys and a handful of knockouts), but its working to their advantage because segments don’t feel rushed and the show doesn’t feel like a "circus" to get everyone on the card."


What you loathed:

  1. Recent Booking - A carbon copy of WWE with lesser stars and very little reach.
  2. Stables - Booked into the ground after years and years of the promotion being dominated by them.
  3. Gimmicks - There have been so many bad gimmicks over the years I can't list them all but Joker Sting and Jeff Hardy going heel were among the top mentions today.
  4. Magnus Title Run - Overbooked mess.
  5. Vince Russo - TNA employed him for a very long time.

Best (and very appropriate) comment comes via Hahnmaier:

"Loathe – Where do I start?"

On to the poll! With 302 votes, TNA Creative's average score is 1.7. Along with Great Khali himself, Dixie Carter, and Vince Russo, let's welcome the newest addition to the Khali Club!

Thanks, Cagesiders! Tomorrow's pick is super.

Until then!
