Will be good, depending on how TNA use them. So my default thought is they'll use them terribly. Still, opens up some exciting and fresh matchups for guys like Daniels/Kazarian, Aries, Sabin, Roode and Angle.

I'd completely forgotten about Kenny King. When was the last time he was on TV?

Watching TNA Genesis. God, Dixie Carter is so insufferable as a TV character. I don't why on earth you'd want her to be the first thing you see for 5 minutes on the show. The new beginning is exactly the same as it was before, people talking and not a thing of interest is happening in the ring.

She has tried very hard to be the mix of Stephanie McMahon and Vickie Guerrero. She can draw heel heat pretty well similar to Vickie at this point IMO.

Speaking of TNA, here's an image from their show last night




When I was in college, the teen mentor center that I interned for had a karaoke fund raiser event on a random Wednesday night. No lie we had at least 3 times the turnout

I haven't watched wrestling in a while.

WTF happened to TNA? They looked like a normal wrestling show competing against the WWE with full venues on television. I remember them being very popular at one time.

That doesn't look good? Did that happen overnight?

It took about 4 years, but the last two have been severe decline.

Wow.

Is that picture a bad week or do they consistently draw that many? It would be way awkward to air a show with so few people in attendance.

TNA's streak of poor live event attendance continued this weekend. They ran a show in Albany, Georgia that drew around 250-300 fans in an arena that has the capacity for 10,000 fans.
