Again, I have to say TNA's match quality ISN'T better than WWE's, TNA's Impact match booking often has you wondering what the hell just happened, or is so rushed that you don't have time to digest the match before they go into another angle.

I agree....
 

I am not saying TNA is greater than WWE because TNA owns WWE, but I am saying WWE is just soo bad. both products at this point are bad, but WWE is worse, not so much TNA is better.

You openly say you don't watch WWE, so how can you judge it?  WWE right now is building up one of their strongest Wrestlemania cards in recent memory, with several hot feuds, hell they've managed to drag good promos out of Batista and Cena as well as finally freshening up their characters, as well as the hot Taker/HBK angle, the months built up Edge/Jericho feud, the 13 year built up Bret/McMahon storyline as well as the annual Money in the Bank match.

WWE isn't bad at all right now, TNA right now however looks absolutely horrible with the exception of the OK Angle/Anderson feud, their main event picture is being made a joke of, with essentially a match on Impact this week that is pretty much Ric Flair & a poor Ric Flair imitator vs. Hulk Hogan and Dave Sullivan 2010.

The few wrestlers in TNA I actually cared for (Matt Morgan, Eric Young, Amazing Red) aren't really involved in anything at the moment, so even if WWE wasn't that good right now I still probably wouldn't watch TNA. I never thought Hogan would be the one to kill TNA's momentum.

I dont see how anyone can really say TNA is so much better than WWE without actually viewing the WWE product, I watch both and while both have their flaws I actually think they are both pretty similar overall, WWE has the edge at the moment as the storylines are just better produced creatively while TNA often comes across as thrown together without much thought and seems very rushed, bottom line is WWE comes across more professionally produced where as TNA sometimes seems a bit amateurish.
TNA definately need a second show as they are struggling to get all the talent tv-time within two hours and this is why everything seems so rushed.

TNA does have the advantage of not having PG restrictions and is a edgier product, personally I enjoy both WWE and TNA and dont heavilly favor one over the other at present at least.

As for the live-chats it always makes me laugh how its Admin who always pushes for them to happen yet hes never been part of one himself. Tongue
I cant see them returning any time soon as we have the problem of the shows airing at different times across the globe as well as so many members not tuning in regularly.

I was trying to keep them going but there's never anyone here.  I know one night, I was in the one for SmackDown and there was not a single person in it but me so I just kept editing the posting I did and adding to it or there would have been several straight postings from just me. 

If someone jumps in and adds a comment then I'll follow them with the rest of the stuff involving the show. 

As far as the WWE is better than TNA stuff--of course, I'm gonna say the WWE is better because I don't watch TNA.  When I found out Hogan was getting involved with TNA, I knew it wouldn't be long before that p.o.s. would be on TV and I was right.

The Smackdown ones were always tough because it airs at different times over here and in the US, if I remember right a SD chat would normally consist of me, Maria, Nyte and sometimes Sam, but more often than not noone was there, I do remember one time where the SD chat had 8 or 9 people in it, I think that was a record!

The only show that actually airs live in the US and UK is Raw and the problem there is because of the time difference its on 2am-4am over here.

I have said a few times I have been watching some here and there because its Mania time. How else would I know about Batista and why would I say I think hes been booked to perfection? I wouldnt get all that from reading the recaps... 

And I dont see the poor imitator. I see AJ as a dude who yelled and was just bad on the mic, yet is now talking like a normal person doing his best promos hes done ever. AJ was always rowdy and yelling for no reason, but Ric calmed down and. Ric being with AJ is what will make AJ go down in history as one of the greats, because before AJ didnt have the promo chops or the ring psychology. All that has been extremely improved since Ric paired with AJ.

That's a matter of opinion, personally I think they're making a huge mistake turning AJ into some kind of Ric Flair No. 2, because it makes FLAIR look like the star, not AJ.

As of right now I think your right, but what Flair is doing for AJ making him more complete it will only help AJ in the future and cement his legacy of one of the better wrestlers of his generation.
