50 Reasons why TNA Sucks, 30 Reasons why WWE is better

Not an up to date post since it was during the Hogan-Bischoff era. Things has been even worse since Hogan & Bischoff are gone from TNA iMPACT Wrestling. But it still illustrate how much TNA Wrestling sucks next to the almighty WWE. I’ve re-published a very interesting post written by Michael Imperzonal. The original link of this article is: http://wrestling-valley.blogspot.ca/2011/07/over-50-reasons-why-tna-sucks-and-over.html


Over 50 Reasons why TNA Sucks, and over 30
reasons why WWE is better then TNA 50 Reasons why TNA Sucks

1. Too many
“Should already be Retired” Wrestlers.
2.
Depleted Roster – only 4 people left for each division. 
3. They
Mention WWE wayyyyyyyy to much! every promo is about WWE.

4. They
got rid of the cool matches and the 6 side ring – which made them unique. now
its just boring same old bullshit. 
5.
every TNA Impact starts off with a 30 minute run long Promo! 
6. they
talk about “The Network” and “Ratings” way to much for a show that gets LOW
Ratings EVERY Week since 2002
7.
There’s No Action – less then 20 Minutes of InRing Time on a 2 hour
show.
8.
washed up guys get the Push
9.
Talented Workers are used for mid card jobbers. 
10.
lack of hype over big matches and PPVs, half the time i never even know when a
TNA ppv is coming up.
11.
They Hire guys that killed WCW to save TNA… makes NO Sense at all
!
12.
Hogan an bischoff need to be a mental hospital or old folks home… not running
a company.
13.
Jeff hardy the face of tna cant stay out of the courtroom long enough to wrestle
a match. and when he does, he is so fucked up it cant run longer then 15
seconds. 
14.
Samoa Joe, Aj Styles, Kazarian, Beer Money, etc guys are still midcarders. no
Push, yet they push ex wcw and ex wwf guys like anderson and rvd and
hardys
15.
constant bullshit endings – main events ending in less then 1 minute. and main
events ending with DQ and Countouts for the past 7 weeks now.
16. No
Wellness Policy 
17.
They never amount to anything – after 9 years, still drawing a 1.1 rating which
is Pathetic. 
18.
always perform shows in the same arena of 800 people. most of which are getting
in for free and they have to Black’out the arena to hide the empty
seats. 
19.
They dont understand the meaning of “heel and face” one week a guy is heel, then
face, then heel, its ridiculous, you dont know whether to cheer or
boo. 
20.
They think they are this big Company. when really its a low rent, tax expense,
low budget, poor ratings, shitty matches, mediocre wrestling company that goes
more and more in debt every day. 
21.
dont know when to stay retired. sting retires, then comes back, leaves, comes
back, given the title the minute he returns. 
22. The
Knockouts division only has 8 knockouts, and they are supposed to carry a
knockouts title division and a knockouts tag division..
ridiculous. 
23.
they fired guys like elix skipper, homicide, petey williams, Low ki, Hamada,
Taylor wilde, chris harris, johnny devine, Lance Hoyt, Jimmy Rave, Chris
Daniels, etc etc etc. just so they could hire guys like flair, hogan, bischoff,
mick foley, matt hardy, orlando jordon, Nasty boys, like WTF they cant even
work! 
24. The
“best tag team division in the world” — they have 2 teams that are any good at
all. The Guns and beer money. thats not a DIVISION, thats a MATCH. 
25. The
“Knockouts are better then Divas” sure, because nearly all the knockouts are
former Divas! – Mickie James, Cheerleader Melissa (Alyssa Flash) ,Tara, Winter,
Christy Hemme, Velvet, Angelina, etc have all been under wwe
contract.

26)
their employees can’t stay out of trouble for 2 minutes-if it’s not Jeremy
Borash telling people they should “die”, it’s Jeff Hardy smashed out of his
gourd again, and now Kurt Angle arrested for the 3rd time in 4
years.

27)
“Ditsy” Carter has NO CLUE about pro wrestling ..You could easily write 50
things wrong with this company.  genMe split up, no longer a tag team. Ink Inc
have now split up. they have no tag teams left.

Over 30
Reasons why WWE is better then TNA
  1. ‎1) WWE
    is the biggest & most successful company of it’s type in wrestling
    history
  2. 2) WWE
    has been enjoying sell out business the past 7 weeks at RAW..
  3. 3)
    WWE’s numbers for RAW have jumped dramatically (by around 1 million viewers)
    since the… return of The Rock
  4. 4)
    WWE’s Tough Enough scored an excellent 3.3. rating for it’s debut
    episode..
  5. 5) WWE
    regularly outdraws Impact in it’s U.K. ratings, despite WWE being on a
    subcription(pay) network, & impact airing on free TV
  6. 6)
    WWE’s Divas division is much stronger than the Knockouts, and that’s before
    Amazing Kong even shows up
  7. 7) WWE
    draws HUGE ratings in Mexico 8) WWE regularly fills arenas with thousands of
    seats, tna struggles to draw 1,000 even though it gives tickets
    away
  8. 8)
    WWE’s biggest show Wrestlemania draws somewhere between 900, 000-1 million buys,
    and packs around 70,000 people into huge arenas, while tna’s flagship
    event-Bound for glory-is lucky to attract 20,000 buys and had to give away two
    thirds of the 6,000 tickets(that’s 4000 people not paying)
  9. 9) WWE
    Superstars & programming is recognised throughout the world, many fans don’t
    watch tna, or don’t even know it exists
  10. 10) WWE
    is seen in 120 countries, tna is only available to a small fraction of
    those
  11. 11) WWE
    makes millions in revenue from advertising & merchandise, tna spends more
    that it earns, and rarely makes much profit
  12. 12) WWE
    runs different arenas every week, tna is usually stuck for impact & most of
    it’s ppvs in a small studio in Florida
  13. 13) RAW
    usually has anyhwere between 10-15 times larger crowds who are paying to get in,
    than impact where they don’t
  14.  ‎14)
    WWE has never featured 5 mins of wrestling in the first hour, unlike impact..15)
    WWE’s pay-per-views have never featured a one minute main
    event
  15. 15) WWE
    has never allowed someone currently up in court on drug possession charges to be
    their World champion twice
  16. ‎16)
    WWE has never allowed someone who couldn’t even climb the ring steps to perform
    in the main event of a pay-per-view
  17. ‎17)
    WWE has a drug testing policy with fines & suspensions for those who fail,
    tna has nothing
  18. 18) WWE
    Superstars have crossed over into mainstream celebrity while with the company,
    for example-The Rock, Steve Austin, Hulk Hogan, Chris Jericho & more..tna
    has yet to create one cross over star..
  19.  19)In
    it’s near 9 year history, tna has not created ONE huge star with cross over
    appeal..Most are ex-WWE or WCW/ECW talent
  20.  20)
    WWE has policies in place to protect its performers from head dropping moves,
    chair shots to the head, and more..tna does not, and in fact actively encourages
    the overuse of “blading”(creating a cut, usually with a small piece of concealed
    razor, to give the impression of an injury) which can spread
    disease
  21.  Average buyrate of monthly WWE ppvs around
    200,000..average monthly buyrate of tna ppvs around 10,000
  22. ‎The
    mainstream media has little or no awareness of tna, and often refers to members
    of their roster in articles as “WWE stars”
  23.  WWE
    can actually pay there talent. TNA paid jersey shore talent Angelina 7000 for a
    match. WWE gives er cast mate Snooki 200,000.
  24. WWE is
    a Global Phenomenon, travel all over the word, a different city every night, TNA
    does every show in the same theater  that gets 900 fans in attendance.  (orlando
    studios)
  25.  WWE
    doesn’t put an already worthless title(the Knockouts belt) on a woman it knows
    to be legitimately injured already(dislocated shoulder) like tna did with Mickie
    James in another ppv non-match, which lasted just over 30 seconds..They now have
    a new champion, who after months of losing, cannot actually defend the title she
    “won”
  26.  WWE
    has not in 2011 featured the same two people(namely Hogan & Bischoff,
    neither of whom wrestle currently, mind you) coming out for the first fifteen
    minutes of the show(impact) for what seems the past 10 weeks at least, and
    basically cutting the same promo about how clever they are
  27. All of
    tna’s current top headliners or people with most promo/screen time are in their
    40s or 50s(Hogan, Bischoff, Sting, Flair, Angle, Jarrett, Foley,
    etc.)
  28. tna’s
    most recent ppv Lockdown featured matches between Angle v Jarrett, Mickie v
    Madison, Morgan v Hernandez, Joe v Pope that had all taken place in some form or
    another at least 5 or 6 times before in the past few months..the same matches
    over and over-the very thing tna fans attack WWE for

  29. tna
    fans love to deride WWE fans for Hornswoggle, yet tna’s Eric Bischoff is
    involved in Half pint brawlers-an entire company of midget grapplers-which tna
    promotes on it’s shows

  30. tna
    fans also attack WWE fans for WWE’s “childish” storylines-yet in recent times
    have featured storylines based around a “ring of power”(which featured a match
    where wrestlers stumbled into a hole in the ring, like clowns), vanishing women
    & “hypnotised” women

  31.  ‎ WWE
    doesn’t even acknowledge tna’s existence on TV..on impact, they can’t help
    themselves every week, either mentioning, “Up North”, flashing their WWE Hall Of
    Fame rings, or using WWE finishes suddenly in matches

  32. Michael
    Cole & Vickie Guerrero don’t even wrestle,(most of the time) and they’re
    both more over than any of the heels on impact
