    Default WWE Employees Assigned To Watch TNA

    - To correct a report from last week on WWE opening Raw broadcasts with a man narrating video packages after Vince McMahon was shown a tape of TNA Wrestling’s Impact Wrestling show, he was actually informed of the concept by an employee and upon being intrigued, immediately concluded that his company could do it better. It was noted that if he had actually watched an Impact Wrestling opening, he probably would have been embarrassed with WWE blatantly copying an idea from TNA.


    Multiple members of WWE’s creative staff—more their assistants—are assigned to watch tapes of TNA, Ring of Honor and WWE’s NXT, and file a report on its contents. There are other employees who work in the same capacity as consultants for the company.


    Though some creative writers joined WWE with no knowledge of professional wrestling whatsoever, there are some who were prior fans.

    Makes sense. Know what your competitors are doing.

    Pretty obvious when you see things like the AJ scandal and Eve suddenly turning into Madison Rayne.

    Why watch yourself with NXT, though? Don't you already have guys telling you about that?

    It's smart unless you abuse it by taking one company's weak ideas and trying to show them your garbage is better than their sewage.

    Coulda been worse. They could have watched Richards/Edwards and said "ORTON! DEL RIO! DO THAT!"

    Not surprising as it happened in the 90's.

    I just wished they capitalized on the better ideas than the the bad ones.

    Maybe they're trying to say they can take TNA's unwatchably bad parts and make them good.


    If that's the case....fail

    I'll admit im way to much of a mark to be a writer. With me John Morrison would be main eventing, Cena would heel, and Miz would be back on MTV causei I'd beg Vince to fire his ass first day on the job.

    Even TNA?

    Well, maybe if you could turn it into a drinking game and bill your employer. Bring me the Maker's Mark. ALL OF IT.

    Yet somehow, that's okay.

    Most of it is obvious, but the whole Madison Rayne thing is bullshit.

    Is he really "midget" CM Punk? Yeah, he's shorter, but he's like 300 times more cut. Doesn't it balance out?

    Sure.

    But then he starts talking and the gap increases again. For some reason he's hard to listen to for me.

    Im sure they do. In the past, people would have ideas or storylines and not long after, it would be on tv.
    Steve Austin was and still is the Best wrestler Ever!
