Impact Post-Show Discussion for Aug 26, 2015


Many wrestling fans enjoy participating in fun discussions during Impact every week, whether it's on social media or wrestling sites. However, it's getting increasingly harder to find places where TNA fans can safely express their opinions on Impact without having to deal with the trolling of the anti-TNA crowd or the smarks who insist on taking the fun out of pro wrestling. For this reason, we felt it was important to make TNAMecca available to our readers and any TNA fans who would like to share their opinions with other fans during the show.  You can now visit TNAMecca to do exactly that in the comments section below each and every Wednesday night at 8PM EST. We feel that Wednesday nights will be a must-watch night of television and we're confident that TNAMecca will be the place to be for real wrestling fans. So make sure you join us every Wednesday night at 8PM EST for our live Impact discussion.

TNA Wednesday Randomania - Aug 26, 2015


- In the closing moments of Impact last week, Jeff Jarrett asked Dixie Carter to give him the authority to run Impact permanently and I'll be honest, I cringed a little for two reasons. Firstly, we can all see where this is headed because the writers have made this story as predictable as can be. I'm so sure of this that I will quit TNAMecca if the Jarretts do not turn on Dixie Carter and TNA when it's all said and done. And secondly, the idea of another paint by numbers invasion angle that lacks any sort of buzz or intrigue is simply destined to fall flat. And trust me when I say that this particular angle has no to little buzz and TNA fans are mildly intrigued at best. I would love to give TNA the benefit of the doubt and hope that they surprise us with a clever twist on an old idea but based on what I've seen so far, this is as pedestrian as it gets. I suppose the writers are relying on Jeff Jarrett's history with TNA to sell this "betrayal" to the long time viewers but I'm afraid they're overestimating the connection that TNA fans currently have with Jarrett. Many fans will always respect him for everything he's done for TNA but the truth is that he lost quite a bit of the fanbase when he officially resigned from TNA and proceeded to almost immediately publicly acknowledge that he planned to start a new promotion. It didn't sit right with fans and I think the fact that TNA brought him back and handed him the keys to the castle has only exacerbated that feeling of ill will.

The Other Side of the Squared Circle - Aug. 19, 2015


Ring the bell ladies and gentlemen as we kick off another edition of From The Other Side of the "Squared Circle" I am your host for the evening. I hope everyone enjoyed the debut edition last week and we all had pleasant evenings enjoying Impact and Ring of Honor. I am pleased to say that this edition of Impact did not have the same off feeling that plagued last week's. That isn't to say that it did not have it's faults. Every show does but that is a different list for later on in the column.

TNAMecca Presents CHAT - Aug 22, 2015


Welcome to TNAMecca Presents CHAT!  Although we aren't an open forum where members can start their own threads, our sense of community spirit is what sets us apart from other wrestling sites so we thought it'd be fun to give our members the ability to dictate the discussion during the weekends via CHAT. Anything goes in CHAT but we do ask that most topics remain TNA-related. You can also discuss any rumors from any source whose reports are permitted here. However, the same etiquette rules that apply to our comments section in general also will apply here, including our policy on spoilers.

TNA Wednesday Randomania - Aug 19, 2015


I realize I might ruffle a few feathers when I say this but the genre of pro wrestling is at its core not a sport, it's a form of entertainment. And with any form of entertainment, it's important that those in production, whether it'd be writing, directing, etc, put together a plan that will ultimately produce, in this case, a wrestling show that does two things: enable viewers to, firstly, invest emotionally in the product and, secondly, suspend their disbelief. Unfortunately, I feel that TNA for me personally, at this moment, is accomplishing neither one. And quite frankly, I'm puzzled as to why that is.

Does GFW Matter Yet?


Well, I'm back from two weeks of vacation, a period of time where I was online very little, and so along with my paying job, it is time for me to get back to writing this column. While I've been away, I've been trying, quite honestly, to figure out exactly what Global Force Wrestling is supposed to be, as well as what that may mean for TNA.

The Other Side of the Squared Circle - Aug 12, 2015


Ring the bell, Ladies and Gentlemen and welcome to the debut edition of The Other Side of the Squared Circle, I am your tour guide taking you on a voyage through my mind to help you understand my thoughts on this week's edition of TNA Impact. I cannot promise the same quality as Shakespeare or even more experienced writers but I will be honest so there's that. Now these thoughts and opinions are only shared by myself and do not represent TNAMecca as a whole, then again that's a good thing, if we shared the same exact opinions this site would be boring as hell.

Variety is the spice of life and it's through meeting and talking with people who think differently about things is how we grow. With that said, let's get to it. This is for the August 12th edition of TNA Impact. As what I believe will be the format from here on out, I will begin with what I liked then move on to what I did not like and finish up with what just felt blah, wasn't right and it wasn't wrong, it was just there, like a Chavo Guerrero Jr. promo. With that being said, let's get the column going.
