some of their wrestlers are now barely getting paid, their attendances are down, their PPV buy rates are almost none existant, this is a company who are in decline, not on the rise

18 months gone, watch this space,and the only one who will make any money will be Hogan, Bischoff and Sting

I'm still a TNa loyal :D

Haven't watched WWE in years and have no intention of doing so. I just don't like the huge predictability about Wrestlemania. for example, Undertaker is going to win every game so it is boting to watch. Plus he's a shite wrestler!

i've been watching TNA every week for two years now, and watched it on occasion for a few months before that, but right now Raw is the better show. although i say that its only really because of CM punk. dont watch smackdown often.

That's a first, I don't think i've ever seen anyone claim that the Undertaker isn't a good wrestler. Sure he's old as fuck now, but he brings it out at WM.

Undertaker may not move about as quickly, or do anything incredibly innovative.

What he does well nowadays is tell a story with the match. He keeps you involved for the entire match, and that's what he needs to do, and that's what's lacking in a lot of matches these days.

undertaker is the best all round wrestler theres ever been. thats not debatable. some people may do some things better than him, but nobody does as much as he does as well as he does.

Miz and R Truth are my new favourite team.

Plus this is the first time in a while where I've cared about the tag team match at PPV. Now they just need some more tag teams so that it isn't Miz/R v Airboom every week
