TNAMecca Presents CHAT - Feb 27, 2016


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.

TNAMecca Hot Picks is a monthly power rankings-style list that will be created and compiled by our staff members. Every month, fifteen TNA wrestlers will be recognized for their superior performance on Impact, as well as live PPVs. Wrestlers will be judged on the following criteria: total victories, titles held, in-ring performance, promo ability, acting skills, and overall performance. Wrestlers will earn points and be ranked based on their achievements as well as their ability to excel on a weekly basis. This is the TNAMecca Hot Picks for February 2016.

Impact Live Discussion for Feb 23, 2016

 
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 Tuesday afternoon at 12PM EST. We feel that Tuesday 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 Tuesday afternoon at 12PM EST for our live Impact discussion.

Lockdown and Beyond

  
So we find ourselves in the middle of the TNA UK Tour 2016 as the backdrop changes from Manchester to London.  I enjoyed the last 2 episodes of Impact in England (for the most part) and Lockdown looks decent on paper.  The scheduled matches are somewhat promising and the crowd should be great, as they usually are in this part of the world.  The Lethal Lockdown KnockOuts match does provide a new twist on things as it is the first time the ladies have competed in said contest, but this Beautiful People/Dollhouse feud has simply ran its course.  I imagine that they'll show well and prove that they can hold their own in such a violent type of cage fight.  A team that is widely adored here at TNAMecca, the always maniacal Eric Young and Bram, will take on ultra-popular Beer Money and figures to be a highlight of the show as the heel/face dynamic is very strong in this one.  Eli Drake competes against...gulp...Odarg...The Great.  If E-Li Drake doesn't go over here, I'm not going to be a happy camper (and many of us feel the same way of course).  Trevor Lee vs Tigre Uno doesn't excite me that much as the X-Division seems to be in another holding pattern, but I anticipate some quality in-ring work here.  And finally, EC3 vs Matt Hardy in the main event is sure to include shenanigans and outside interference which most likely means that Hardy will retain.  I don't see him losing the belt this quickly as TNA management seems to be infatuated with Matt Hardy being in the main event scene, which is mind-boggling to me.  At least Spud and Ethan are beginning to reunite as that is very pleasing to many of us here.

TNA Wrestling Does Not Need to Evolve, It Just Needs to Tell Consistent Stories


Disclaimer: TNAMecca Co-Founder Chris Regal posted a POV column yesterday entitled, Memo to TNA: Wrestling has Evolved, You Should Too whose premise and content I disagree with and instead of retorting via a novel in a post, I figured well blimey (That's for you British Readers) I am back on the TNAMecca writing staff and can just do it POV Style.

Memo to TNA: Wrestling has Evolved, You Should Too


Let me preface this by saying that I believe the current Impact Wrestling product is fairly decent to very good, at times, and has been since its debut on January 5th. By no means do I feel that TNA are putting out a poor product. However, I think it's important that as loyal and diehard TNA fans, we need to finally acknowledge the elephant in the room...and that's the fact that at a time when the wrestling industry has evolved in such a significant way, just in the last year, TNA seems content to push the same product and philosophy they have for years. And the sad truth is it's a product and philosophy that is simply out of step with a majority of the current wrestling community.

It's Not the Size of the Roster that Matters, It's How You Use It


Disclaimer: This is not a mirage, this is real, this is now, Musings from Will is back Baybee!!!!! (Thank you 2007 Chris Jericho for this) For those that don't know how these things go, it's real simple. In the disclaimer, I will go over all the subjects I shall be going over before going over them in greater detail in the column itself. In this column: I will be talking about the size of the TNA Roster and why bringing in more talent isn't that necessary, I will be talking about heel Matt Hardy and babyface Ethan Carter the Third, I will be covering TNA's "OMEGA Kliq" and I will throw in some other thoughts on TNA since they started on POP and since I started re-watching TNA again on that fateful January 5th Evening.

Mike and Maria in Dixieland


Before Mike Bennett and Maria came to TNA people couldn't decide if they would be the right fit for the company's current direction. In ROH/NJPW, Mike and Maria were significant parts of the faction, The Kingdom. Current ROH talents, Adam Cole and Matt Taven were also members of this group. Within the group Mike and Matt worked as a tag team with Maria as their personal manager. Part of the reason why people were undecided if Mike Bennett would fit in TNA was because his prominent and most successful role in ROH was as a tag team wrestler. With his previous employer it seemed like Mike never really got enough time to prove himself as a worthy singles wrestler. The popular consensus was that Mike needed to work in a team because he was not entertaining enough on his own. Ironically, in one episode all of those opinions were thrown out the window because Mike and Maria would prove them wrong seemingly effortlessly.
