And on XPW...I don't really have anything positive to say about the company..BUT one key difference is that they didn't seem to destroy their stars. TNA has pretty much sunk LAX, The entire X-Division, Joe,Christian, Abyss, and even Angle. It's almost lilke they create stars to destroy them. XPW never created any stars really, so the results of their shittiness was less horrifying.
Well said. XPW & MLW too for that matter get a pass from me in this discussion because, frankly, there was never any potential there anyway. Whereas TNA gets far harsher criticism from me for wasting a ton of potential.
I'm not sure that in five years, TNA has successfully executed a storyline from start to finish.
Now that is an excellent point, I would love for someone to try and figure that out, because I genuinely can't think of any.
On the subject of WOW's goofy gimmicks, I personally feel like that's all about context. WOW to me came off 100% like an updated version of GLOW and as such I basically assumed that it was SUPPOSED to be campy and cheesy and the gimmicks were basically supposed to be your most basic level of stereotypical characters. And still, what's wrong with campy gimmicks? That's a foundation of the business. Give me that over all this horrible, horrible bullshit TNA's doing where no one knows who is a heel or babyface or what their motivation is, from a character standpoint.
