TNA has drop the ball with james storm big time and they aren't doing shit with storm at all
They haven't been using Storm right, I agree, but you can't deny that they pushed him to the top in 2011 – 2012.
First off I think this is some of the most fair commentary I've ever heard in regards to Eric Bischoff. A lot of people either despise him or are a complete mark for him. You give three valid reasons…
1) He eliminated the 6-sided ring
2) He created the "show refresher" segment
3) Created main eventers
We can debate how much this was Bischoff and how much it was Hogan as well as how much he had to do with the pushes of Austin Aries, James Storm and Bobby Roode but I like the way you explained your points.
At the end of the day I don't think I completely disagree with you but I do not give Eric as much credit either.
I know there are a lot of negatives about Eric, and Hulk, joining TNA Wrestling. People will say that they took out the 6 sided ring (negatives), led to the X-Division and Knockout division downfall, had their "friends" and family enter the company while they don't deserve it, and hurt some of the best stars in the company like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe. People can bring up a lot more negatives. While I don't like how AJ and Joe are being treated as well as the two divisions… I do think Eric, and Hulk, helped TNA with building new stars and the other points I made. Some see the good and some see the bad.
