Although to be honest, that wasn't true at the time BFP made the post either, while WWE was plain lame for a lot of last year, TNA was just plain bad...

I'm not crossing the line to watch anything involving Hulk Hogan.  WWE pisses me off and when I get tired of them, I just don't watch wrestling but I am not watching anything with Hogan involved in it.  Sorry p.o.s. ruined WCW for me.  I watched the episode of TNA that he debuted on and seen the same thing from WCW ten years earlier--him and his friends dominating everything.

Live Discussions only work for the Americans because they get it live, while if you lived in Australia you don't get WWE Raw until Wednesday at 3:30pm and TNA Impact until Saturday night at midnight, so yeah I doubt any Australian members would jump in on this solely on the basis because of how late we actually get the tv shows.

The products for both shows are still crap. If Vince decides to kick up the rating again, then there might be a chance of seeing Live discussions again. Otherwise, I highly doubt it will happen for a good while.

Yeah the product is crap, agree with you there, but I think IF TNA do become sort of a threat (doubt it), I can see Vince just saying "Hell with the PG rating" but again I think the PG rating is just a way for WWE to say they are going through a new generation, to get a lot of younger kids more interested in the product so when they grow older WWE will be back to its old usual self.

That's what I'm hoping for there, BG. The thing is about the rating, it's only going to appease those kids for a few years until they grow out of it and mature. Something else will come along and capture their interest once they reach their early to mid teens, making them completely forget about wrestling. If Vince wants to hold their interest even into adulthood, they need to spice up the product a bit more.

Hasnt changed at all. Its still the same, can I admit WWE is good right now? YES... Its Mania time and WWE is always good now, but when I said that it wasnt Mania time. 

TNA is still better than WWE for 1 fact, TNA has wrestling matches, WWE has who can do the same rest hold more than 1 time in a match for the longest. 

And yes, TNA isnt as good as it was when I said that, Hogan came in and made a mess, but it doesnt matter if TNA feels to be booked week to week, or if theres 3 or 4 old men on my tv every week who cant wrestle... I still get to watch Angle, Anderson, AJ, Pope... Sorry for E marks you have to watch Cena and his 5 moves of doom, Orton hold a chin lock for 5 minutes straight, and Batista act like Warrior for a minute before he gives thumbs down.

So yea, some things have changed but what I said and how true it is hasnt changed.

Lets just wait until Mania ends. And then lets all read eachothers cries of foul play and boo hooing about WWE being terrible again;.

.......and in the meantime, you have Hogan who thinks the whole show should center around his sorry ass.  It'll be hilarious when in two years tops, Dixie Carter is doing like the execs of WCW did and selling her little company to McMahon on a LIVE edition of RAW.

Hang on a second BFP, did you say TNA "has wrestling matches"?  Do you even watch Impact?  In a two hour show last week, TNA had 4 matches, which didn't amount to any more than 15 minutes of wrestling, which quite frankly is pathetic and just SCREAMS Vince Russo booking, not Hogan or Bischoff, and it's the same most weeks.

They had a 4 way match last week which went all of 5 or so minutes, including commercial breaks.

For crying out loud, the WWE divas have longer matches sometimes than the majority of the TNA roster on Impact.

Again using last week as an example, and I know you said you didn't like the show either, but they had a total of SEVEN segments involving Eric Bischoff alone, and then a bunch of Foley, Jarrett and Hogan skits, most of which went nowhere.

And this isn't a WWE mark talking, hell if you saw what I used to be like in the Raw live discussions, I used to complain more about the product than probably everyone else, going on regular rants, I hated what WWE has become, it only really holds my interest at this time of the year.

And by the way, that "Orton holds a chin lock for 5 minutes" crap is about a two year out of date view on Orton, rest holds rarely last longer than 30 seconds.  Randy Orton has a better grasp on wrestling psychology than any member of the TNA roster aside from Hogan and Flair.

I did say right now TNA wasnt that good, but the quality of match is still better than WWE. Isnt it sad TNA wrestles a 5 minute match, WWE wrestles for 12 minutes and TNA match was better than WWEs?
