I was a TNA fan until Thursday night. I started following TNA in 2003 when I first saw results for TNA ppv on NODQ.com. For Christmas that year I got my first dvd, Best of the X-Division the original (not the one that was released through Best Buy later on.) I was really getting into TNA with the DVD and then the Fox Sports Net era of iMPACT. Through 2007, I followed TNA religiously and then again off and on until this summer. Starting this summer, I watched TNA regularly mainly due to Aries and Aces & Eights.
That is until this past Thursday. This past Thursday, TNA dropped the ball. I have hated the Bully Ray-Brooke angle since it started. When she was saved by Bully Ray (who came in from the entrance) after being abducted by Aces & Eights (despite being SUSPENDED last week.) After that Hogan came in and Bully admitted his love for Brooke and that he was going to marry her.
I have sat through many wrestling weddings angles both dumb and enjoyable but this takes the cake as the worst I have ever seen. The pairing of Brooke and Bully Ray makes no sense at all. Their relationship was never explained and happened in two months. Two months and two people get married? Is this Vegas? Vince Russo was a better booker than this.
As of Thursday, I am done caring for TNA. They can fall into a pit for all I care. I feel bad for the talent that I enjoy like Austin Aries, AJ Styles, Bully Ray, Samoa Joe, James Storm, Rob Van Dam, DOC, Knoxx, Sting and Bobby Roode that I wont watch them anymore. However I do not want my intelligence insulted by watching dreck that I would have booked as six year old fan with my Hasbro WWF wrestling action figures.
I am posting this not to start a flame war but just as a former fan disgusted in what TNA became. I am done caring about a product I loved back in 2003-2006 and enjoyed up til Hogan's arrival. I feel total apathy about the TNA product now and there is little they can do to bring me back in as a fan.
