Get rid of Hogan.















Stop trying to be WWE.















Go back ti it's roots and concentrate on in ring action.















Push home grown talent instead of former WWE stars.

Do exactly what it did last Impact.































Last episode, they did everything right. What they need to do now is improve on where they left off. Sooner or later, they will have to expand the size of the Impact! Zone, because a crowd capacity of 1,400 is relatively small compared to other companies, and being located in the middle of an Amusement Park isn't really that good for business, because TNA and Universal agreed that TNA is not allowed to charge admission for their shows (seeing how it costs $60 to get into the park in the first place, it only seems fair to the customers).































Another thing, they need more match variation. Maybe a Tornado Tag or an Ultimate X Match for #1 Contendership or something.

They need to tour more and create more exposure for its brand. Having "Impact" in the same spot every week is not doing much for their exposure. Live events are where it's at!































Also they need to stop with stupid story lines like Joseph Parks getting kidnapped and focus more on your real talent like Austin Ares. That whole Aces and Eights thing had potential until they screwed it up by making D-Von the leader. It should have been Hogan and Bischoff along with the returning Jeff Jarrett. What could have been a good story is now dumb just like the rest of TNA's story lines.

Create new fans. When WCW went down and WWE started going south in the early 2000's, about 3/4th of the wrestling viewing audience disappeared. You could chock it up to the WWE product being inferior when they eliminated the competition, the growth of the internet and it's media capabilities, or the fact that a lot of people who watched WCW really didn't want to watch WWE or any other promotion. Either way you look at it, the WCW audience, along with half the WWE's viewing audience, disappeared somewhere.































So to answer your question, TNA's got to do something huge that gains public notoriety in the way that things like nWo, Steve Austin, and other hall of fame worthy acts had. Recreating Attitude wont do it. People saw attitude. Hiring a specific talent wont do it. TNA has had one of the single most over wrestlers in the past 30 years in it's company for a majority of it's run, and tha'ts Sting. They have to find the next evolution of wrestling, the next buzz worthy trend, and pull themselves up. There's no other way to my knowledge, other than grabbing back that old audience or creating a new one, because wrestling fans just aren't that prevalent anymore.

Get rid of Dixie Carter. A woman can;t run things like that. Hell stone cold could take over Tna and make it boom if he knew how to manage. What I don't get is why Bischoff helped wcw boom and when he left Russo killed it with McMahon...but then Russo had a decent tna product with the wcw new crew who settled for low pay. They tried to make tna the new wcw/nwa but it just did not have the budget from the network.















Spike tv is ALL reality shows and gang banger stuff and ufc so tna is filtered by it.































Either way I'm thinkin somebody need to get rid of Dixie carter or....make a new company..why do people keep trying to give tna the 3 legged dog that could a chance?? Its like voting for Nobama again...its not gonna work.

They aren't likely to pass the WWE in North America, Vince has television locked up; he keeps flooding the market with WWE shows and preventing other companies from getting a fair chance. In other countries he doesn't. And that's where TNA is gaining ground. TNA keeps expanding it's worldwide fan base (The Middle East and Africa are the latest). The North American fans have had nothing but WWE for so long they don't know anything else. If you read comments from them you'll find their negative criticism stems from the fact that TNA tries to be different from the WWE, and the people don't know how to react to that so they just bash the company because they don't understand it. It's not the WWE they know, therefore it must be bad.































TNA is going the right direction finally. They have stopped trying to attract WWE fans by altering their programming to accommodate what WWE fans say the WWE is not giving them; WWE fans just whined that TNA was "copying" something or other. TNA is now producing TNA shows for TNA fans, not just in North America but around the world. They aren't trying to alienate WWE fans, they just don't need them anymore and they're demonstrating that TNA will no longer try to accommodate WWE fans by altering their programming for them. WWE fans are invited to watch TNA but TNA doesn't need them anymore (to succeed).































The WWE is the well-established monolith. Nobody is going to "beat" them without doing what Vince did to kill the wrestling business in the 80's. WCW tried in the mid-to-late 90's and damn near succeeded in out-Vincing Vince but ultimately the company folded under it's own bloated weight. The WWE has weathered every storm that's come it's way and survived. But it's the 800-pound gorilla by which every fan judges the business. Everybody compares anything in the wrestling business to what the WWE does. It will take time and considerable effort to change that mentality in the fans. TNA has taken a big step in the right direction by ignoring what the WWE does, ignoring the negative comments from WWE fans, and just producing TNA shows for TNA fans."Better" is a subjective opinion. In the opinion of TNA fans, TNA is already better than the WWE. To WWE fans nothing will ever be better than the WWE.































The WWE "owns" the wrestling business in North America mostly because they have television locked up. The power of television gets you all over the country, and to the rest of the world. That's one of the main reasons the WWE IS the largest promotion in the world; they have more television shows than any other company in the world. TNA IS getting bigger by getting their shows on more TV stations around the world. TNA's fan base is growing continuously; the more shows in more countries they get the more new fans it gets. Eventually maybe TNA will surpass the WWE as the number one promotion but that will take a lot of time. You can't force mass opinion to change. You have to let it change on it's own. You put your product out and let the people decide what to spend their money on. If they decide TNA is "better", TNA will continue to grow.































Right now, TNA is doing all the "right" things. Dixie Carter does NOT run the day-to-day operations as far as storylines and television go; she's the company CEO overseeing the business and getting TNA into more homes around the world. TNA has a great mix of established big-name veterans, a solid mid-card, rookies with potential, and a developmental "territory" to mold new performers. They have solid and varied wrestling matches, the storyline writing has improved tremendously (despite what WWE fanboys would have us believe), and their shows are fast-paced and fun to watch.































TNA is doing the "right" things. It's now up to the fans to put aside their preconceived notions and biases and catch up to what TNA fans already know.

They just need to put on a better product, and the more professional they can make their stage look the better, and bigger arenas would help too!































They need to think out segments ahead of time, they can't rush storyplots, or rush segments and matches on television, they also shouldn't be copying anything within WWE, it just makes them look like they can't be original!
