Comment of the Week

The featured Ring Posts comment of the past week goes to theorangechimp, who wrote the following last Friday in response to the entry "Shane McMahon leaves WWE.”

But who is going to beat up Legacy now?

I will select the Ring Posts Comment of the Week every Monday (or Tuesday).

TNA isn't repetitive? Oh, so those story lines Russo uses from the 90's are original? Sting, Nash, Steiner, Foley and countless others are so original? I been watching wrestling since 84 and I've watched AWA, NWA, WCW, ECW and a few others fall. All the while fans who think of themselves as "anti-establishment" and "rebels" because they're anti-VinnyMac, keep tell me how much better all these company were and putting on a better product. 25 years later who's still on top? TNA and ROH might have better wrestling matches but the production, marketing, merchandise and advertisement and overall entertainment value that Vince has is WAY ahead of anything either one of them has. You might not like the Chavo and Hornswoggle angle because it targets kids and the female demographic. But newsflash, kids and women watch wrestling and the WWE knows this. TNA only goes after the 18-45 male group. Last weeks 3 hour Impact did a 0.9 rating. On the same night Superstars did a 0.87 and the WGN station is shown is less market than Spike. 2 week ago on a 2 hour Impact there was 26 minutes of actual wrestling on that show. ECW had 23 minutes in a one hour show. A few times ECW has more actual wrestling in half the time of Impact but the ongoing lie is that TNA doesn't believe in "sports entertainment". If thats so where's that extra hour and a half going each week? Being anti-Vince doesn't make you cool, it just make you ignorant.

Hey Kevin, you sure this guy posting as Common Sense isn't actually Triple H or Vinny Mac himself?

I think common sense has just turned heel...

I'm really not a HHH fan. But I recognize the fact that had Vince not done what he did with pro wrestling in the 80's and how he stepped up during the Monday night wars during the 90's with WCW, wrestling would probally still be a small time business operating out of bingo halls and high school gyms. It would probally also still be territorial. Some knock Vince and completely forget had it not been for him there wouldn't be PPV's or cable wrestling programs. Don't bite the hand. I also see the WWE suspending their talent when they violate the wellness policy. Jeff Hardy, Rey, Umanga and others. How many has TNA suspended? The didn't even remove Angle from a PPV 2 day after being arrested. How about the Chris Daniels DUI arrest? How many day was he suspended again? oh, that's right, none. You have to be really gullible to believe no one in TNA has not ever failed a drug test. The WWE didn't sign Nigel mcGuinness because of failed wellness test. After the Benoit mess the WWE finally got it. TNA is only adding to the problem by ignoring it.
