TNA is nowhere near the threat it once was, I wanna say the Hulk Hogan Push for Monday Night Live Impacts was when TNA had peaked, as the Hulk Hogan Era started the huge decline, that being said, they're still "Somewhat" of competition towards WWE.

The only time I remember a real direct TNA reference was when Kaval (Lowki) 'rapped' and used the term "It's time for some Total Nonstop Action" during NXT 2

That being said, I anxiously await the day that TNA gets added to WWE Networks library so I can watch some Pre-Dixie as on screen character TNA.


TNA Had literally an all-star LEGENDARY roster at one point and was getting destroyed in ratings because of really dumb decisions, the booking was even bad at the time (near the end of the Spike days, TNA had some quality storytelling). Then after The failure of the Monday Night Wars 2, We got... Aces and 8's for a solid 2 years (a story that should of died after ~4-6 months at most), and then Josh Mathews.
Josh Mathews was so great in the WWE, what in the hell happened to that guy? Seriously, Matt Striker is in Lucha Underground and doing a great job, how did the other half of a "commentary team of the year" award winner end up spewing so much garbage? From his attack on Jim Ross to his piss poor performances every week, he isn't even a shell of the potential he used to have. Seriously, WTF.

It's like he cares so little about the product that he, himself, is the voice of that he barely even tries. When he doesn't care, is it any surprise that so few others do? When you come into a commentary team and are worse than Taz, you should not be on television.

In a lot of ways, i think TNA embarrased wwe. First, they showed that even when they bought out WCW and ECW, they were still not hte be all and end all of wrestling. Fans were willing to give other companies a chance. As well, they showed that wwe didn't always get the best talent. Lots of guys what wwe didn't want anymore went to TNA and did wekk, proving they still had value. As well, TNA had a lot of talent like Styles that wwe could have had and passed on. While TNA may not have become the competitor that we all hoped it would be, it certainly shows that you could build a wrestling company and have some success even under the bid shadow of wwe. I think that is going to be its legacy - you don't need to beat wwe to be successful. People won't admit it but things like Lucha Underground, etc and even ROH to a degree exist like they do because TNA shows you can succeed.

TNA brought on alot of the issues they have today on themselves and it all started with January 4th 2010 when Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff coming in. They were at least in the conversation as the #2 promotion behind WWE up to that point. Hogan and Bischoff coming in changed all that and they got away from what worked for them.

If TNA were doing today what they did when they got started we might not even be having this conversation and maybe WWE would acknowledge them a little bit.

The major problem with TNA was that they never aloud themselves to grow that and the silly name of TNA. Once they got the Spike deal they should of left the studio and expanded into a touring schedule not doing that resulted with no expanded fan base, don't think they ever got much advertisement either which didn't help. They had a killer roster in 2010 they completely missed the ball with Hogan all they had to do was to use Hogans celebrity status to advertise the show and start a touring schedule then with good booking they could of been a real threat.
