Austin Aries says TNA's issues start at the top


Probably not coincidental, with all the talk about TNA's ownership this week, that an interview current WWE NXT Superstar and former TNA World and X-Division champ Austin Aries did with Chicagoland Sports Radio is getting some play.

The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived offered his thoughts on his former employer, and used an analogy that will make a lot of sense to fans of professional sports teams:

It always goes back to the ownership group. At the end of the day, you can change coaches and managers and players, but if there’s something intrinsic, something wrong, then you have to look at what the common denominator is, and, usually, you’ve got to look at the ownership because everything runs from there.

People who've suffered through years of mediocre or losing seasons, such as Cleveland Browns fans in the NFL or Philadelphia 76ers supporters in the NBA, can relate. Even if there are occassional flashes that an organization is turning the corner, after a certain amount of time, you have to look at common denominators.

In TNA, that's the woman at the top.

That might be about to change, but it could be too late.
