Impact Live Discussion for Jul 29, 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.

Stand Up? How About Stand Together?


When the Baltimore Orioles opened Oriole Park at Camden Yards in 1992, the game production people used to play this song called "Welcome Home" before every game, the idea being "this is your new home, get comfortable here." To everyone here at TNAMecca and those who have reached out on Twitter: mission accomplished. I feel so welcome here and I hope I live up to the warm way I've been brought into this community.

TNAMecca Presents CHAT - Jul 25, 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.

Time to Get it Together


Ladies & Gentlemen, This is MisterTNA speaking... and today I deliver to you thoughts that have manifested over the last couple of months regarding the status of TNA Wrestling. Now as long term fans we're not new to the whole roller-coaster ride TNA has been on since its inception, we've enjoyed the highs and wallowed in the lows but have mostly remained firmly strapped in our seats and carried on. The reason I mention this is because over the last 12 months this high/low stuff has started happening on a regular basis, to the point where in the last couple of months we've gone from one high to a low every few weeks. So my question is simply this, what the hell is going on?

TNA Wednesday Randomania - Jul 22, 2015


- It's been an interesting week here at TNAMecca, a week in which many of our members expressed their frustrations with some of the recent issues that have arisen due to poor decisions by TNA management. These decisions have begun to affect the television product in many ways and fans are simply not happy about it. Obviously we're not privy to the behind the scenes matters and we may not completely know the facts but we don't have to. I've always said that the status of a wrestling promotion should be judged not by the happenings backstage but by those on television, and unfortunately Impact has lost its way in recent months. I won't rehash the reasons why simply because I've pointed them out in previous columns but I will say this: TNA needs to put everything that's happened in the last couple of months behind them and start fresh with the tapings that are set to begin tonight in Orlando.

TNA's Past is Shaping Their Future

 
Well, we now know that the new "Law" in TNA is Bully Ray.  That's right, Bully Ray is back in TNA and his role is being The Law.  Let that sink in a bit.  The man who power-bombed Dixie Carter through a table in Manhattan last year, the former leader of the Aces and Eights, is now "in charge" of TNA.  While some might be angry at this recent development, I actually see it as a long-term storyline paying off after the appropriate amount of time has passed.  I am not thrilled with the development but it's tolerable as long as Bully doesn't jump into the World Title scene and take the spotlight in that fashion.  TNA fans did not appreciate the way that Bully Ray talked so degradedly about the company in his time away from Impact Wrestling.  However, it appears that cooler heads have prevailed and now we get the end game for all of the build between Dixie and Bully Ray.  She will step aside yet again and hand the reigns off to Bully.  I'm not sure I completely understand it but it is what it is.  It should make more sense over time and I am guessing that somehow Jeff Jarrett may not appreciate Bully Ray being given so much power, especially since his influence on the TNA product was just starting to be seen and felt.

There's Something Rotten in the State of Den...umm...TNA!


If you're a regular reader of my columns, you know that I've consistently said that the behind the scenes matters don't concern me simply because they don't ultimately affect the television product. A few weeks ago, however, I began to have my doubts and shared with you my thoughts about that in one of my Randomania pieces and in particular TNA's inability to get away from the Impact Zone and other issues starting to affect Impact. Unfortunately, this week's show was a complete mess and I think it's time to recognize that there's something rotten in the state of TNA.
