Impact Post-Show 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.

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.

TNA Wednesday Randomania - Jul 15, 2015


- It's been of a week filled with speculation on who will be in charge of Impact Wrestling, starting tonight, and we won't have to wait too long to find out because, according to Dixie Carter, the new authority figure will be revealed in the first five minutes of Impact. When Dixie announced last week that she'd be putting someone in charge of the show, my immediate thought was that it's unnecessary. The authority figure in pro wrestling, particularly one that's a heel, is an overused plot device that often hinders the product more than it helps. But I've been thinking about it the last few days and I think, if done properly, an impartial authority figure could add structure to a show that at times needs it. This is not to say, however, that it's the reason why TNA have decided that Impact now needs an authority figure after five-plus months without one but I imagine there's a good reason and it involves Ethan Carter III so I'm willing to give it a chance before I completely dismiss it.

Dixie Carter returned to Impact on Wednesday night and announced that she will be selecting someone to be in charge of Impact Wrestling next week.

Please keep in mind that this is a discussion thread so please explain your reasons for your prediction and anything else that pertains to this specific subject. And as always, please do not post spoilers.

- If you're a fan of Ethan Carter III, tonight's episode of Impact seems ideally suited for you. Not only does the Reign of Carter begin but he's evidently defending his world title three times as well as booking the show and doing commentary.  The three title defenses in one night suggests to me a classic EC3 charade in which he displays his dominance by defeating three iconic legends of pro wrestling, similar to the way he did when he first arrived in TNA. However, the fact that we now know that he's booking the show, it's pretty much a certainty.

TNA Wednesday Randomania - Jul 1, 2015


- The fact that this year's Slammiversary has finally come and gone is a positive, in my opinion, but not in the way one might think. Although I enjoyed the PPV, I feel that its lame duck status contributed to a sort of limbo period for TNA fans. I agonized for weeks over my decision of whether or not to order Slammiversary and although I had plans to not order the PPV as late as Saturday night, I ultimately ordered it simply because I wanted to show my support for TNA. The fact that I was rewarded with a fantastic show was nice but I can't help but feel a sense of relief that we can finally put this year's Slammiversary behind us.
