The Decay


What kind of images are conjured up when you think about "decay"?  Normally this particular word would not be associated with pro wrestling, but it definitely will be now that a new, improved version of Crazzy Steve, the debuting and disturbing Rosemary and The Monster Abyss will be spreading their sickness all over the TNA roster.  For me, when I consider the future possibilities of the macabre characters in this threesome, it feels exciting and unique.  Whether you enjoy the horror genre of entertainment or not, it has come to your television (and other devices) in the form of The Decay.  Scary movies and television have been a treasured part of our society for many decades.  This category of amusement is a reflection of popular culture and thus is a great fit on PopTV.  There are several current TV shows that fall into this classification including the critically acclaimed American Horror Story, Penny Dreadful and Scream.  There are also hundreds of horror movies out there.  So why not incorporate this type of main stream interest into TNA programming?  The Decay is what The Menagerie should have been; dark and sinister.  Instead Knux's carnival crew turned into a fucking joke.  The Decay, however, is no joke and they should not be trifled with.

Many wrestling fans enjoy participating in fun discussions during Impact every week, whether it's on social media or wrestling sites.

TNA Randomania - Jan 17, 2016


I haven't had a chance to formally share with you my thoughts on the first two episodes of Impact on Pop so I thought I'd take a moment to do so this week. I'd like to keep it simple so I will separate my thoughts into two parts: what I liked and what I didn't like. For this particular column, Part I, I'd like to focus on what I liked. Later in the week, I will post Part II, what I didn't like.

Getting The Year Started

  
The first week or so of 2016 has been a successful one for TNA.  Now, many people would argue that point based off of the initial viewership numbers but it's important to keep a long term point of view and to not get too caught up in the week to week ratings.  There are a lot of factors involved with their current PopTV deal that we are all well aware of.  The focus for the company really needs to be on giving the audience quality Impact episodes and staying consistent.  As long as they do that, the promotional aspect and word-of-mouth buzz will come along naturally.  The fans will return slowly but surely and TNA should continue to repair their public image.  Based off of the debut episode of #ImpactOnPop and the One Night Only LIVE Pay-Per-View, it looks like a major emphasis is going to be on their younger group of talent which is a wise and durable philosophy.  Yes, Kurt Angle is being highlighted for the next couple of months with his U.S. and U.K. "farewell tour" matches, but the end game there is to put over the younger wrestlers who will be around in the future to carry the torch.  TNA's roster is really good right now, and with a couple more key additions it could be GREAT.  We'll have a clear idea where things are by the time the U.K. shows have aired.

TNA Randomania - Jan 4, 2016


- Wrestling fans spent much of the weekend wondering who or what the Miracle is and quite frankly judging by some of the speculation, the only thing that's certain is no one has a clue. And that's because TNA hasn't given us much to go on and to their credit, they've essentially created a little bit of buzz and some chatter based on a simple concept and a few vignettes. The concept seems clear at first but you find out pretty quickly that it isn't at all upon further examination because the vignettes perfectly represent a theme but it's difficult to know exactly how it translates to a wrestling concept. It's been three days since the first vignette was released and the question still remains, who or what is the Miracle?
