You can. They brought back Vince Russo and Tommy Dreamer. Nothing says "step back" that those pair of jokers.

 

Don't get me wrong, there's still a lot to grumble about regarding TNA. The 'ECW nostalgia' as Wade Keller dubbed it on Twitter, the mindless hot potato of the World Championship, the poor house show attendance etc. But things like this and running Bound For Glory in Japan at least suggests to me they're willing to try new things as opposed to circling the drain, so to speak. I'm just happy to see some of Britain's finest get some television exposure.

 

Of course, none of this matters if they get booted off of Spike in the autumn, mind you.

They might as well just do an NXT rejects Nexus faction. It's the sort of lowly shite that TNA is used to, with it being a pale imitation of a WWE storyline and a heel stable, and they've got enough WWE developmental failures on the books or radar for it. They could hire Chris Hero to lead it.

I still don't really get this decision. How about they try and do something, anything, about their shitty domestic business before they start running "their WrestleMania" in Japan.

Haven't they always done much better abroad than domestically, though*? I know where you're coming from and the first thing I would do would be to try and remedy the problems on their doorstep but I can see that there is some logic amongst their usual madness here.

 

*I read this a while ago. Things have probably deteriorated since then though.

Looks like TNA are picking up WWE's rejects, makes sense they have wrestled and learnt in the WWE so if their good enough to be on NXT they'll be good enough to be on TNA tv and visas shouldn't be hard to get as they've been in the States already working.

 

Starting to think maybe its fixed, like the ones who get invited are the ones who make the final 12.

 

I can imagine they'll pick some realy crap wrestlers to put on tv like they do on x factor and then when a good wrestler from the chosen 12 is on they'll look like a million dollars compared to the previous shit arse that was on tv before them

Spike tv Are ending there deal with tna in october. Big news that, could be the begining of the end

 

TNA Impact will not be renewed by Spike TV in the fall season, reports TMZ.

 

According to the report, TNA president Dixie Carter was informed of Spike's decision this weekend and Carter held a meeting to discuss TNA's TV future.

 

TNA is scheduled to air on Impact through October, giving the company about two-and-a-half months to find a new domestic TV home.

I would have to guess that this is also the end of British Boot Camp 2 as what would be the point when TNA will be dead before they even get to pick a winner.

 

Plus would it be worth it for any wrestler to now uproot his or her life to go to the US when the company you are going to work for won't even be around by the end of the show.

 

I can see a lot of guys who were going to try out not bothering and the ones already picked backing out.
