    right now the wrestling industry & i’m not counting roh & others as such but right now the wrestling has a duopoly with the wwe & tna & i think it would be a bad idea for vince to merge with tna mainly because he would have a monopoly on the wrestling industry again, personally for me as much as i’m not a tna fan it’s nice to be able to watch another company & not have just one player in the field.

    ‘can’t tell me that since WCW been gone it been good for wrestling. It really hurt wrestler all the way around. So why not help each other out’ Are you serious? I’ll probably get heat for this but okay, WCW was showcasing utter crap at one point. Even at its peak the under card performance’s kept that place alive, I remember one ppv when Hogan returned and ran around the outside of the ring with a wig on being chased by Macho Man for 10 minutes.

    It was good for buisness having WCW around but the quality of wrestling is still there. We all bitch about it including myself but both WWE and TNA are putting on decent shows…Minus a few angles like the Bischoff crap.

    I think the problem of SmackDown is that it’s on Friday nights. Make it Thursday nights again cause that will help a lot. People go out Fridays and not as much on Thursday.

    Smackdown is going through what we at TNA are going through (Taking a hit in the ratings for the sake of building up new stars) Smackdown and TNA will walk out winners at the end of the day imo.

  • Jason

    That was not me. I find this sad to be honest because I like Smackdown, I think it is miles better than Raw from a wrestling stand point.

    It seems like the shows that have good wrestling on them via Smackdown and Impact get 2 million or so viewers vs. the show with hardly any wrestling that gets over 4 million viewers a week.

    Hardly fair

    And Jason (I think that’s the same Jason) shows his true trolling colors. >_>

  • yofits

    lol Chris Benoit is awesome!

  • JayHawk

    Wow they finally are trying someone new and you already say sheamus push is failed it takes more time to make a good build for a person with a push. But now we are going to see Bryan vs CM punk which will be good. Give them time to push someone new or would u rather see cena orton or even hhh as champ.

  • nick

    Just get rid of Booker T.

  • SpudimusPrime89

    How long until Jason shows up and obnoxiously praises TNA in response to this?

  • Crispin_Wah

    That Sheamus push is really working out for WWE isn’t it?

  • Wife Beater 3:16

    If you can’t beat them, join them.

  • Gorilla

    Vince and Dixie said there companies would be stronger in 2013….;)

    I think slowly both WWE and TNA are coming together. What I mean they are not going to be competing against each other that much anymore. Which it me would be good for both side. Because lets face it nobody wants to see either one go out of business. No WWE is in no danger but nor do we really want to see TNA go bye bye either. Because nobody really wins you can’t tell me that since WCW been gone it been good for wrestling. It really hurt wrestler all the way around. So why not help each other out. So if the Rock shooting with Kurt Angle so what that is cool if you ask me. It is going to help Kurt out a lot more. Why because let face doing movies with the Rock a guy that then the best in Hollywood only going to help Kurt out. No Angle will never be as big as the Rock in Hollywood but if Angle is as successful it will help more of the older wrestler go start doing more movies.
