wrestling fans who dont know about tna are clearly living under a rock. its not as if its easy to miss, is it? its on spike, and is their highest rated show, so im assuming they advertise it. its all over the internet, anyone searching wwe on twitter will find articles about it (some news sites put #wwe #tna on the end of their tweets with articles)
flair also hasnt been seen in tna for a while, dunno about house shows but he's not been on tv, not even a mention of him really. which is a good thing, he needs to retire :lol:

Best AJ Styles match I've seen is with a British worker called Pac.

I was watching this guy on youtube and watched this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jj0iT...&feature=feedu He complains about people complaining about WWE bit hypercritical don't you think? I made this video in response http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQjeVFs3EFw So what do you guys think about this i would love to hear your views. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YYpiKPLXzM


I stopped watching review shows because they're all run by miserable, moron "super smarks" who think everything is bad and nothing is ever good.

Those chants have been like that for about 5 years now.

I'm going to watch Superstars for the first time ever this week. Joey Styles is on commentary (him and Scott Sanford should mean for a good team I think) and Zack Ryder has a match!

Yeah, was just even more noticeable than usual on Sunday, although it might be because I stopped watching back in 08 and now there's even more kiddies than before due to the whole "let's make WWE PG" thing

True. I'll put that down to the red hot Chicago crowd. A good crowd really does help bring the overall quality of a show up, and MITB is a shining example. Also, is it me or do things seem to be slowly edging away from PG?

Speaking of CM Punk, they're actually fucking doing it right! This video is of CM Punk invading comic-con and confronting HHH. It's fantastic. It's good to see the WWE adapt a storyline like this, and it's even better that they got the best wrestler in the world to be the focal point.

PAC is really hit-or-miss, sometimes he's a wonder to behold and sometimes his matches are just gymnastic-clinic spotfests (like any match between him and Ricochet). He had some great matches with El Generico in PWG a few years back though, and his current work in Dragon Gate USA is excellent.

not just you. i take it HHH has actually taken over behind the scenes now or at least will be very soon, which could only be a good thing imo

They're moving towards "PG-13", which allows them to swear a bit more and use more mature themes. Still no blood thankfully.
