This past week’s Impact Wrestling kicked off with Eric Young walking to the ring and giving a heartfelt message to all of the fans about winning the TNA World Championship last week. It took him 17 years to get to this spot. However, just as fast as Eric came out, his time by himself didn’t last long as Dixie Carter made her way out. She congratulated Eric and quickly went into making herself look good. She tried to take credit for Eric’s success right now because, as she stated, without her, Eric wouldn’t be in TNA. She used the same tactic with AJ Styles… and now look where he is. While that is how her character is, she took a different route and called out the bearded guys in the wrestling business. It just got real!
In my previous two articles on the TNA PPV Model I determined what I liked and did not, read at this link and also how I would fix what I did not like at this link . In this article I am going to examine the Live Specials. I enjoy these specials on occasions but I also think that they could be done better. [Read more...]
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another article. We witnessed another huge TNA Impact. I believe it was a live event for the privileged American fans that had already promised an enticing program. I just knew there would be a World Title match and I predicted it ahead of schedule. I don’t think the Wrestlemania week ended on Raw, it continued on Impact! The spirit of a fiery bearded man wasn’t to be denied. For this article, I’ll focus on the sequel of the article, I writ last week, the Magnus Project – The Long Term plan . [Read more...]
In a newly uploaded video on our official YouTube account, I give my thoughts on the returning six sided ring in TNA Wrestling. While the return date is a secret, I describe how much of an impact it had in early TNA days but what it made TNA look like when Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff eliminated it. I then give my thoughts on whether it should return. The video is below, or click here.
There has been a sort of fallout lately over TNA resigning their talent to multi-year contract extensions. A lot of the IWC is giving TNA flak for not being able to resign Sting or AJ Styles when TNA is resigning Robbie E and Rockstar Spud. I would like to formally ask the IWC to listen up. [Read more...]
Following on from my last column we now head onto Saturday Night Xplosion as we head towards the next One Night Only special in May!
We have been following the series of developments all week long right here on TNANews.com on talent receiving contract extensions with TNA Wrestling. The following all signed multi-year contracts with the company:
What a Week !!!
Last week was just epic!! Last week, God, Vince and TNA proved that anything could happen and made our jaws drop wide open in disbelief. 10 days ago we saw Brock ending the Undertaker’s streak, last week the Ultimate warrior passed away after making his triumphing return on Raw and last week (and after 10 years of waiting) Eric Young became your NEW WORLD HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPION!!! That’s why professional wrestling is awesome, because anything could happen and at last EY got the credit that he truly deserves.
Following on from my last column we now head onto Thursday Night Impact and all the fallout from One Night Only 2 days earlier!
The TNA Wrestling contract extensions keep on rolling in over the past couple of days. As we wrote on here, James Storm and Gunner signed multi-year deals with the company. Not only has James Storm been with the company since day one, but Gunner is arguably the future of TNA. Well, we can add another name to that list of recent extensions.
Around the time that MVP made his TNA debut on the January 30 episode of Impact Wrestling, one phrase that characters kept throwing around on television was “a new beginning”. The lengthy Aces & Eights storyline had come to an end, as well as the regime of Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff, whose departure had been announced at the end of 2013. In addition, the company’s financial difficulties had caused a large-scale roster shake-up, involving numerous releases and failed negotiations, most notably in the case of AJ Styles, who had been generally perceived as “the face of TNA”. A new page in the book of TNA’s history was not only needed, it was inevitable. MVP’s populist character was established as an antagonist to President Dixie Carter’s dictatorship and the leader of the new era. Matt Kunka recently published an article on the new characters and various creative changes that have taken place ever since, and while the product has changed massively over the past few months, its biggest issue is, sadly, alive and well.

This is a short video explaining the direction I am taking TNA Wrestling in with my fantasy booking shows I am writing for TNANews.com and explaining the style of wrestling show I like to write.
