Who TNA Should Hire
TNA Should Hire Anthony Nese. Nese made his TNA debut on July 7 2011. Nese is one of TNA’s most misused wrestlers ever. Throughout his career in TNA Wrestling, he was used as a jobber. Zema Ion is usually a jobber and Nese lost to him in a Best of Three Series. This one really has me shaking my head.
Anthony Nese has tremendous wrestling ability. Not only that but he has the look that makes you pay attention to him. He is athletic and can cut a promo very well. He knows how to draw heat from a crowd. This man is a future star in the business. Just give him a chance. Let’s have him in the X Division for one year then move up to the Heavyweight division the next year. He could start a feud with a main eventer and become one of TNA’s top heels.
Who TNA Should Fire
Sting is very well known for his days in WCW. His career took off when he feuded with the NWO. He didn’t say anything for a long time. He would show up in the rafters. He sometimes attacked the NWO. Whenever J.J. Dillon wanted him to sign a contract to face a NWO member, he would tear it up in his face. Who did Sting want to wrestle? To that, he went outside the ring and held up a sign. On it, he pointed to the name Hogan.
In TNA, Sting is well known for his feud with Jeff Jarrett. Sting came back for one last match. He teamed with Christian Cage against Monty Brown and Jeff Jarrett. Sting and Cage won. Two episodes later on iMPACT, Sting announced his retirement. Jeff Jarrett and Eric Young didn’t believe that he actually retired so they sent Alex Shelley to spy on him. Sting returned at Destination X. Christian Cage and Rhino were being assaulted by Jarrett’s Army. Sting saved them by showing up as Steve Borden and putting Jeff Jarrett in the Scorpion Deathlock. Shortly after, he was ambushed by Scott Steiner. Sting continued to feud with Jarrett to remove TNA of its “cancer”.
First off, I must say that there should be a rule in all of professional wrestling. This rule is that no one that is known for being a wrestler should be allowed on TV past the age of 50. I am not a big fan of wrestlers wrestling past the age of 40. 50 is ridiculous. Sting is 54 years old. Not only that, but it seems that his passion has gone with age. He doesn’t care anymore.
In his Bound For Glory match, whenever he put Magnus in the Scorpion Deathlock, it never looked serious. The whole match looked like he was only going through the motions. There was no excitement. This is “The Stinger”! He is known for being exciting and making a splash at Bound For Glory. He disappointed this year. Whenever he does promos, he is too much of a nice guy. Personally, I enjoy him much better as a heel. I always have in TNA. Even when he was with Kevin Nash in the Wolfpac in TNA, he was much more exciting than he is now. Nowadays, he gives lectures and pep talks to people. It’s hard to watch.
Ultimately, I feel that Sting’s career started to go downhill when he came as Steve Borden. It was a great story with a reason behind it but I cannot get behind masked, or face painted people, coming out without their trademark. Rey Mysterio is the best example. Manik is also another great example. If you are going to be Manik, stick with Manik. Do not remove the mask and costume to do a promo as T.J. Perkins only to wrestle later as Manik. It is the same with Sting. I get tired of seeing him come out cutting a promo as Steve Borden only to transform into Sting later that night.
Ultimately, Sting has done very much for the wrestling business. For that, he is to be honored. He is a legend in the business. But it is time for him to retire. His passion is not there anymore. His wrestling is not there anymore. He is boring to watch when he does a promo. He is too old. Quite frankly, he seems washed up. It is time for Sting to retire.
