Who TNA Should Hire And Fire

Who TNA Should Hire

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHSEFrTJPWA

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

Magnus Sting

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.

    In the period where TNA need to boost ratings, they can't afford to lose wrestlers like Sting. You give a compelling argument about the age factor. If he was like Hulk Hogan or Ric Flair then you are right. Or if its him going for the championship, which Im still not 100% fully behind Bully Ray being given the opportunity since his age of being over 40 doesnt guarantee his perceive statements that he can continue at his best for over a decade, is legitimate.
    But Sting has been used as the alternative recently. A good compromise i think you would like, is how he lost his chance to ever go for the World Heavyweight Championship. This means, he can be used for other storylines. Like help to build new talent, such as Magnus.
    I will like to give the example, of The Undertaker. He's my personal favourite of all time, still delivers the best match, per year. Old wrestler, but he pulls it off. Its how he is used, with the 'Streak Storyline' being incredibly interesting, in personal feuds.

    Wes Brisco and Kenny King are solutions for the future of TNA. Young talent, who can be harnessed. Perhaps feuds with Sting, can help build up

    I like to see older wrestlers take young wrestlers under their belts. This can happen in either forming tag teams, feuding, or, my personal solution for sting, as a manager. I think if he could muster up some belly fire from somewhere, then he would be an awesome spokesman for young or mid-card talent. Maybe he could do an angle about recruiting mid-card talent by telling them he is an icon and can make them one too. Kind of what he is doing with Magnus, but I would like to see him do it from a manager position. By the way I agree about when Steve come out without his Stinger paint.

    Judging people based on their age instead of their ability is age discrimination and it is bigotry of the worst kind. Furthermore it is ILLEGAL to fire someone because of their age. Are you also against blacks being on TV?

      Actually is it not illegal if TNA let Sting go from his contract. He would most likely receive the remainder of his pay from his contract, thus fulfilling the obligation. Secondly, TNA is a company located in Florida, which is a right to work state. You can be terminated at any time for no reason. Lastly, Sting would need to show documented proof that he was being discriminated against based on his age. Very difficult to do if he is not specifically told that he is being fired due to his age.

    How do people keep calling me a racist when I have repeatedly, on this very website, stated that I am a Kenny King and D’Angelo Dinero fan? Go back to my first article on here. Is it not a fact that athletic ability goes away when you get old? Think about any contact sport. NBA, NFL, MMA. The only one you could possibly exclude is boxing because of B-Hop and Sergio Martinez. As great as A.J. Styles is, he is not as athletic as he used to be. Sting does not help ratings. He might be able to give a promo, but they are never as good as Bully Ray, Austin Aries, Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, The Pope, Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle. Sting simply cannot wrestle anymore. It is not illegal to refuse to renew a contract, which appears to be up at the end of the year. Ratings are nowadays below 1.0 and they were between 1.0 and 1.1 before Bischoff and Hogan came in. As great as Brisco and King and Manik might be, you cant look 3 years down the road with just those three wrestlers. You need to continue to build for the future.

    I agree Sting should retire. There is nothing left for him too accomplish. He has done so much for the wrestling business. He is also the only wrestler to ever acheive his legacy ( not working for Vince Mcmahon). Sting is one of the most popular guys of all time and also has one of the most memorable characters.

    I, like many others would love to see a Sting vs Undertaker at Wrestlemania. However, if that wereto happen id rather it have happened already.It would do nothing for any of their carrersto have a match at this point. Undertaker wants the streak to end but he wants to lose to someone who needs their “It” moment.

    I also think that sting should leave because watching the match at Bfg between him and magnus, it seemed like he just didn't care anymore. he was missing the passion that made him great, and there is nothing for him to really achieve in tna now. sad but true
