That's a management issue. TNA's problems were never their pool of talent, and we all know that. They need to create a better brand, a trustworthy brand. They are trying to go 'mainstream', but their money and their TV channel scream 'wrestling fans'. So try and make the shows for those who enjoy it, try to have an NXT approach and then they'll be the cool kid in the neighborhood. Not only for the fans, but also for the talent and the wrestlers in general.
Try and lock up some of the favorites and I am not talking Kurt Angle here. I am talking ECIII, I am talking Rockstar Spud and Galloway. Then build your big programs around them, until you have some new cool guy to take it's place. TNA tries too much to be bigger than what they are and that hurts in public reputation.
But of course, everyone has their two cents on how good we are and how dumb those people in TNA are. The reality is just this - the current management is not working. Their TV is sometimes entertaining, but most of the time it's not and it isn't the talents fault. Lack of direction, hurts. Lack of confidence hurts too.
I truly hope they put the title on Galloway and stick with it. Make him sign some papers where he's obliged to defend the championship and can only leave the company after dropping the title. Galloway is such a good and fresh choice, that it pains me to see that they are not going with it. Galloway can face Eric Young, Bobby Roode, Bobby Lashley, Mr. Anderson... and be a fresh match. Let him be a babyface, turn him heel later. But do something. ECIII already proved he's awesome to watch, so people will give him a chance after dropping the title.
