I still don't know the answer to the question. WAS TNA THE WORST?! Plenty of great wrestling took place here. Plenty of bad wrestling took place.
As I'm still going through it (reaching end of 2007), this is what should be emphazised. Shitload of good to legit great stuff has gone under the radar because "oh, it's TNA", which is ridiculous. If you look at the amount of shitty wrestling and storylines going on in the WWE during the same time, I'm not sure the ratio would be that much different, honestly.
