AJ Styles vs. Kurt Angle
After watching last weeks Monday Night War I will have to agree with the rest of the wrestling that we need TNA. We just dont need TNA but we need it to be good. Monday was an okay start but if pro wrestling is going to better TNA is going to have push the WWE. Monday Night RAW was as good as it has been in a very long time. I do not think that it is any coincidence that it was better because Vince McMahon had some live competition that evening. Not only that both programs scored the highest ratings they have had in a very long time. In the case of TNA its highest ever.
Going forward here are some of my suggestions for TNA
1. Dont put too much stock in aging wrestlers that the WWE does not want anymore.
Using WWE retreds was one of the things that help bring down WCW. Not to mention you have a lot of the people on the roster that helped bring down WCW. The proper way to use these guys is to help get your younger talent noticed. I thought the fued with Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle was a great example of that. You have some of the best wrestlers in the world. AJ Styles(current TNA Champ) vs. Kurt Angle in the main event was one of the best matches I have seen in the past 5 years.
2. Capitalize on what you have and the WWE does not.
First of all you have a very good tag team division. Beer Money maybe the best tag team working. It is a lost art form that most wrestling fans appreciate. It is also a good spring board to get future singles wrestlers noticed. Remember Bret Hart and Shawn Micheals first gained their popularity as tag team wrestlers.
Second use your X disivion. I liken the X disivion to WCW's cruiserweights years ago. Their high flying and fast paced wrestling is very exciting to fans. It even amazes non wrestling fans who watch and say "how did they do that".
Lastly your Knockout Division. Play up the fact that your ladies can actually wrestle. The WWE divas are good eye candy but they suck in the ring. The average wrestling fan wants to see wrestling on a wrestling show. Ladies like Awesome Kong, ODB, and Tara will kill any of the so call WWE Divas.
3. Use Hogan's name but please dont put him in the ring or put your title on him.
I really dont have to explain this one too much. The guy can barely walk and even in his prime he was not the best worker.
