Kofi needs a character make-over or something to take that dude to the next level. Or else he's doomed to Shelton Benjamin land for eternity.

This is the old WCW angle they tried to run with Hogan when Jarrett laid down for him until Russo ruined it when he talked shit about Hogan afterwards. Hogan was supposed the company as champ, they'd hold a tournament to crown a new one, then Hogan would return as the "real" champion and they'd have a World Champion VS World Champion match.

That's what they did with Punk/Cena back in 2011 too. CM Punk wins the title and decided to leave the company with it, so they have a mini tournament to crown a new champ (it ended up being Cena vs. Mysterio in the finals which Cena won of course), then when Cena wins and gets his new belt, Punk comes out and sets up a champ vs. champ.

That story line had so potential.

They dropped the ball with that one to be honest

iMPACT was good, the AJ story is really intriguing and well-played so-far. Not very happy that Anderson is back, I hate him with a passion, and now he's going to get a feud w/ Bully...

Bromans are awesome, and the title celebration getting crashed was perfectly executed. Chris Daniels saying that "Appletini's are a real mans drink" was priceless.

more specifically,Kevin Nash tore his quad or something yet again by doing skmething mundane

It was originally supposed to be Punk vs Nash,but then he gets injured leaving Punk as the guy Nash cost with no retribution
Nash straight Punked him

Though CM Punk wouldve been bigger or what DB is getting now if
people decided not be wrestling hipsters when the company was behind him
and didnt start to turn on him,but eh

People Power

Problem with it was that they brought Punk back too quick. He won the title Sunday, and he came back almost immediately. I can't remember if it was the next night or the week after, but either way it was too quick.

They shoulda had him win the belt then disappear with it. Have NO title at all for a little while then at the next PPV have a mini tournament for the belt, somebody wins and acts like they're champ. Then even let them have the belt for a few weeks THEN bring back Punk to challenge them. There was never a sense of "gasp, the championship is gone!"

This^

Also, Cole sounds like he's reading a script (He's probably just parroting what Vince says in his ear-piece), so it really wasn't sold too well. Good idea, poor execution. TNA has executed it well so far, the last shot of AJ driving away w/ the title was a great ending.

As we previously reported, there are rumors that the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles, will be defending the TNA belt outside of the organization to bring credibility to the current storyline that he has left the company. Specifically, Styles is rumored to defend the title on shows for the AAA promotion in Mexico, as well as the new Wrestle-1 promotion led by wrestling legend Keiji Mutoh (The Great Muta) in Japan.

See, for once I can say TNA is doing this storyline the right way. WWE's problem is they're too arrogant to ever do something like that. It makes the storyline so much better though

Or they just exaggerate how bad his injuries are so it seems more impressive when he comes back early, like Kobe.

Vince aint buyin TNA. It wouldn't be worthwhile. He bought WCW for 2 reasons:

1. Pride. They almost put him out of business and it was probably the biggest ego boost of all time to buy them and end the company for good

2. They had a bunch of legendary wrestlers that WWE could snatch up. NWO, DDP, Booker T, Rey Mysterio, Goldberg, Scott Steiner etc. Granted WWE didn't use all those guys as well as they could have, but they still wanted them

TNA has a few good guys but nobody that WWE hasn't passed on already at some point.
