I feel compelled to speak on this~ lol
COMMENCE WRESTLING RANT!! GO!
How many of you guys were watching Monday night?
So they're trying to do it again~ TNA wants to re-ignite the age old MONDAY NIGHT WARS againts the WWE. Seems rather fitting since TNA resembles WCW to an alarming degree..
I have always been on the WWE team, at least for the most part. Back during the ORIGINAL war with wcw it was the cool badass edgy show that you couldnt help but love. I was also a huge WCW fan, but i was a mark for the names, and it was the cruiserweight action that I loved most. (sound familiar X-Division?) It wasnt until the old ECW came around that I found a TRULY superior product, but that's beside the point.
in the mid 2000's WWE got so stale, that we all tried to find an alternative. I watched alot of TNA, ROH, and NJPW during this time, but TNA always had a problem
it was boring! they had an entertaining X division in the middle of a show of semi retired rejects. fast forward to 2010
TNA wants a war
BUUUT theyre still boring.. and watching the nWo in their walkers and wheelchairs was actually far more depressing than entertaining.. It seems like they dont want to prove that TNA is superior, i think they want to be WCW!
Vince and the WWF used to joke that WCW was the 'wrestling retirement home' and that was 15 years ago! Look at TNA now..
did anyone else find that funny watching Hogan Hall and Nash on Impact?
and somebody PLEASE tell me why X-pac things he belongs in the ring with these aging legends!?
WWE RAW featured an aging legend of it's own
the return of Bret The Hitman Hart! never say never, right?
I noticed something comparing the 2 big name returns monday night..
Hogan was greeted warmly, but i definately got the feeling alot of the TNA faithful doesnt want him there.. and his nWo re-hash theme song just made me laugh..
..and Bret was welcomed back with open arms by fans who were legitimately happy to see him again, and care about him! It was a marvelous moment, just hearing that theme song and seeing him walk the aisle to that huge pop gave me goosebumps!
Hogan and the nWo made me depressed and think about how sad it is how everyone gets old and thats life and that sucks..
Bret made me feel like a young fan again! there was something magic about his return, and something tired about Hogans..
I've tried to be a TNA fan but i just can't do it. They're not doing anything revolutionary, but seem to think they are. And keep telling us how fresh and exciting they are. They dont go 5 minutes without saying that TNA is gonna be number 1 and how they are the best sports entertainment show on earth.
I think they believe if they keep saying it, we will eventually beleive it!! haha, doesnt make it true~~
Also i think Jeff Hardy made a retarded move, he took a step BACKWARD there, and Ric Flair? he just had a big emotional retirement, and ruined it~ X-pac is just kinda pathetic, and the Nasty Boys? who cares!
I've given TNA too many chances to win me over, they really failed again.
I am however genuinely excited to watch RAW next week~~
Conclusion: Competition is healthy. But this isn't gonna cut it.
Thats my two cents! GO GET EM, HITMAN!
