I wrote because that's the storyline

I'm aware it's his character, I just hate his gay voice and his face. I have ever since I used to watch him fag up Livewire.

To be fair, Nexus invasions are ruining matches. Not even in an entertaining way.
Just a shit way.

If TNA had some better direction and some way better UK coverage, i'd probably switch.

i'll admit, what barrett did was impressive, but i still want to see him in a match were nexus dont get involved in any way, even just coming out onto the entrance ramp, before i mak up my mind on him

The storylines may be a touch dodgy, but you can't fault the quality of the wrestling every week. Which is why I look forward to TNA every week rather than Raw.

Cross the line!! Their knockouts matches are usually always solid and the X Division steals the show :D

Do Bravo still censor the 9pm Impact with chairshots, blood etc? I stopped watching it on tv in favour of downloading it as a result of that.

Well, i've always had a semi-interest in TNA. They have a lot of the better wrestlers around at the moment. The have Hogan and Bischoff fucking it up a bit, but if Heyman is actually coming aboard, I may well make the switch...

...Or at least, make TNA the priority.

Extreme Sports channel now has all TNA programs and the PPV's , the quality of the wrestling is brilliant, the women's division is as good to watch as the men most of time, their women can wrestle :yes:

The only problem they have is production value , which i'm sad to say, if the company had a better chairman and writing team, they would get , the fact that TNA still havn't improved rating by any significant amount, not to mention getting rid of the 6 sided ring , shows how badly they are being run

the 6 sided ring made it different from wwe, and it made the matches better when they had more space at the side of the ring for suicide dives and stuff :(

im going to the next uk tour so i hope they do use the 6 sided one :D
