Every time I watch TNA i really enjoy it. More and more it reminds me of the spirit of classic WCW. I think if it carries along this path it has a bright future ahead. OK Its never going to compete with WWE but hey, who can and who cares, its wrestling and its great! :thumbsup

 

So simple question, Do you think that TNA will still be around in 10 years time and if so, how big will it be?

AJ Styles refused a WWE Developmental Contract, He was never in WWE.

 

Low Ki will never be in WWE, It's his hard hitting stiff approach that gets him as much recognition as he gets. If you tone down Low Ki, Like WWE would then you'll get nothing good out of him.

 

TNA used to be a good little promotion until they decided to try and be a WWE clone thanks to the horrible booking of Vince Russo, Since then I've really lost interest in their product, Not to mention the fact they keep putting the title on Jarrett, Whilst he isn't the worst wrestler they have, He is not, never was and simply never will be a draw.

AJ Styles was never a WWE employee, he had try out matches (as have just about every other indie talent from Samoa Joe to CM Punk) but never signed any kind of a deal, Low-Ki was a WWE employee in 99 but was released from his developmental deal along with American Dragon.

WWE have no idea how to push people?!?! that is kind of stupid really if they didnt wrestling wouldnt be around now. WWE needs competition to hold some of its unused talent and up and comers.

WWE is the biggest company in the world and if you want to be the best in the world you have to join them really so they do need to consider WWE

i wish it on no up-and-coming talent to be given a deal by the WWE, because they have no idea of how to push people. their roster is far too big and they've no room to put anyone.

 

anyone with a TNA contract is set. they've no need to even consider WWE.

 

"Up-and-coming" seems to be the key. You go to New York once you've learned your trade in the Indys and you're no longer "up-and-coming" but "here". It's not as good a system for learning as the old territories for learning but the explosion in small feds up and down the US means a young wrestler can learn the ropes without being exposed. Then, if he's good enough, he should then think about going to WWE.

Erm... best in the world need to join WWE? I think Jushin Lyger, Keijo Muto, Chris Daniels, and Kenta Kobashi may disagree with you there.

 

Captain Caveman, the TNA on TWC shows are 6 months behind.

 

AJ Styles has worked matches for the WWE, but so has pretty much everyone of importance on the Indy scene. He has never been contracted by them.

 

WWE does have too many roster members. Tommy Dreamer has said numerous times when the brands were together, you had about 100 wrestlers backstage. Now, you've got about 50 per show. Far too many, especially when guys like Paul London are being wasted (not that I particularly like him, but hell, even I appreciate he's more talented than 80% of the roster).

 

And WWE does need competition. But there will be no Monday Night War for a VERY long time, and if there is, WWE will cream TNA. If WWE take a spot on FOX, TNA is stuffed. If TNA move their show to a Monday, RAW will make sure it takes all the ratings from Impact!

 

As for TNA, it is in a very cautious spot right now. It needs it's local TV slots for XPlosion and it's new awfully timeslotted Impact! to sell $9.95 PPV's every week. Somehow, I can't see it happening yet.
