  1. I'd like to see TNA combine that demographic that want to see matches stemming from counterfeit jeans rackets gone bad, illegal card games, or miscellanous maritime chicanery, with that pre-teen/twink demographic that like Glee. Guys need to start singing their own entrance music, give it a real West End Story meets Rent vibe, with rival gangs marching to the ring to settle differences with their fists that ultimately get resolved with harmonious words, and maybe a kick line on PPV. Evil Linda Ronstadt, GM would fit in nicely. Have them tackle eating disorders, guys coming out of the closet, maybe even a wrestler with AIDS. I'd like to see wrestling have a Kevin Cooper-like narration over the top of backstage vignettes. "I knew I shouldn't trust Ric Flair, hell, he'd burned me COUNTLESS times, but this time, maybe he had seen the light and needed the Stinger as a partner to tackle The Young Bucks....boy was I in for it later tonight..." Have matches that don't mean shit be sponsored by companies. That British guy and Matt Morgan can fight for the Wendys Xplosion Trophy valued at least $8000. Sponsors, prestige, glamour, guys fighing for something other than whats right. Get rid of titles and replace them with a revolving door of corporate sponsored trophys, cups, ceremonial maces and crowns. The Susan G Komen Trophy holder could come around once a year, you could get mileage out of a heel that pledges to use this trophy, exposure and opportunity to ensure they're all hit by cancer somehow...only to be stopped by a cancer preventing babyface. Pre-tape particular matches that are held in bizarre yet ultimately exotic locations. Blow off feuds on top of volcanos, or a pirate ship, or a spooky video store. Blue screen has not adequately been used in this industry and there is a golden opportunity. Make use of the Sharknado demographic who want to see a real life leper referee a Brazillian street fight. How did TNA fuck this up?
  2. Yeah but you can't have two Shane's. That's just confusing.
  3. That last season of TMNT where it was just snarky breaking of the fourth wall the whole time had its moments, and kinda cool throwbacks to past seasons. But otherwise, yeah, odd.
  4. Cena-Big Show monster truck match?
  5. When Eddy had the LWO in late 98, who was his bodyguard? :S
  6. Has there ever really been a top line promotion built around a tag team? Maybe the Dudleys for a brief time in 99, or the Impact Players, but really can't think of many others.
  7. Easily the best character to pick in the early Smackdown games.
  8. Makes sense in theory to set up a three way match. In practice, don't think it suits the HIAC PPV, especially without a decent co-main event. My prediction is that they ape the Spring Stampede 97 finish and use it as a reason to keep the title vacant.
  9. I think he's around. Maybe even closer than you think. Maybe.
  10. What's everyone's best Big Show match? Don't think there's many better than the Lesnar match at the Rumble. Guy bumps huge for Brock and they get a ton of shit in in such a short time.
  11. 850 foot and a half? That half seems a little redundant.
  12. Mark Henry would go 1000-0
  13. I think it would work as how many of the key WCW players at the time were only defacto faces (Horsemen, DOD), or had spent a large amount of time as a heel (Luger, Giant, DDP). Eventually you have da numbers game turn against the NWO, and bring up how many of the lower card guys only joined the NWO as they were threatened into doing so, and see them jump ship at the first sign of the tide turning, and being real cowardly heels. You could even do the NWO split based on the true believers of the "for life" mantra vs. those who jumped ship. From there, you essentially do the Flair abuse of power angle from a year later, but without as many top guys on the injured list. I reckon it'd be kinda cool to continue the dynamic of Sting appearing from the rafters or under the ring and attacking guys as a heel, I don't think it's ever really been done before during the time of Monday nights to see the show end with this Jaws-like scene where the faces have no idea where this heel threat is going to come from. Of course, it'd be difficult to build up guys like Goldberg and Booker T as they did, but as heels, I'm sure they'd manage.
  14. The double turn would have made sense, given how en vogue it was at the time, how popular the NWO was, and hindsight showing that most of the key players end up turning within 12 months after any way. Keep the slightly screwy finish, have Sting win, but then go "too far" in taking out his frustrations on Hogan post-match, putting him out, before Bret puts a halt to it. The dynamic of whose side is Bret on is probably better with a face NWO, and a WCW who may not be perfect, but to begin with at least, had their hand forced by the actions of the NWO over the past few years, which ends up being a slow build toward Sting vs. Bret at Starrcade the next year.
  15. A tournament for the best Missile Dropkick may not turn a profit though..
  16. The forklift stretcher job was awesome. Reminiscent of the mumu Simpsons episode and the garbage bag full of popcorn scene.
  17. I fucking hate Mick Foley. I hate how he consistently needs to let everyone know how good a person he is, how he has such a complete lack of humility in telling EVERYONE what great deeds he does right down to the last dollar in detail, I hate how he tells the same stories over and over again and has no concept that they've been done to death. That I met him in person and realised what a whiny scumbag he is too, just nailed it for me. Poor man's Michael Moore.
  18. Zack Ryder being repackaged as a pre-teen Rambling Ricky Rhodes-esques Dusty Rhodes impersonator certainly has merit..
  19. My prediction? Deadly Game tournament > Punk heel turn/win/align with HHH > Bryan/Punk midcard feud whilst they focus on the real issues such as HHH vs Orton or Big Show
  20. Wonder if that rumour about the tag titles was true - there were a few WWE licensed bios that said that one of the Nasty Boys gave his tag title to Willie Nelson to hold onto at a after WrestleMania party. Willie left with it and it was never seen again?
  21. The spoilers.... they.....aren't completely douchey? That's different.
  22. I stand corected. Dockers rest a practically unprecedented ten players..
