Default Wrestling fans... TNA is blowing away WWE.

I've been really disappointed with the WWE since WrestleMania. They blew it at Mania by having Orton job to Triple H. The only match that delivered was Undertaker vs. HBK.

TNA iMPACT! this week blew away the last month or so of WWE programs. If you haven't seen it yet go and search it on youtube or download online because it was that good. Mick Foley interviewing Cactus Jack and then Sting coming out and confronting him was probably the best promo/segment I've seen on a wrestling show in a long ass time. The main event was Christopher Daniels vs. Kurt Angle. They even brought in Balls Mahoney and Spike Dudley to really push Team 3D vs. Beer Money in a street fight in Philadelphia (home of the REAL E-C-DUB).

Tomorrow night is LockDown and the main event is freakin' Sting vs. Cactus Jack. This is going to be nuts. The last time I saw these two wrestle was in WCW in probably 1993... I was 9 years old at the time. It will be crazy if they could pull off a match almost as good HBK vs. Undertaker. How crazy would that be if the best two matches of the year so far are HBK vs. Undertaker and Sting vs. Mick Foley?

Man I havent watched wrestling in forever. HHH is champ again? Isn't this like the 42nd time?!! Also, has Undertaker continued his Wrestlemania win streak?

Only since Wrestlemania? It's been crap for years now. I think the last time I thoroughly enjoyed an episode is when Vince went psycho and requested the help of the boys in black (nWo) to take back his company from Ric Flair

TNA's booking is crap, they have the talent to overtake WWE by miles.

If anyone's interested come to worldwrestling.inventforum.com

and Sting vs. Cactus Jack could be good.

TNA seems to do well with Impact but not so much on PPVs. TNA's PPVs suck badly recently.

It's been crap since long before 2005. It hasn't been good since the Rock and Sock connection. That was the last era when it was truly great. Now they rely on stars of the past constantly bringing guys back 'from the dead'. They don't have stars charismatic enough to carry the show themselves, they have to delve into the past for some old school magic.

I think they were "great" until 2001 and "really good" until mid-2003. It seems like after the first half of 2003 (after WM 19) it all went downhill. The only thing that's been really good still is WrestleMania but not this one. The only thing that saved it from being horrible was the Undertaker/HBK match.

TNA's booking is fine. It's so refreshing to see compared to the same old stale WWE programs. They actually remind me a lot of the WWF during the Attitude Era. They actually have real storylines that make sense. They also actually try and surprise people like what WCW and the WWF were so great at in the late '90s and early '00s.

Yeah, just get WWE 24/7 They're showing the Monday Night wars, both Raw and Nitro from sometime in 1997.
