I don't know what it's going to take to get people to check it out, but while thy're lol'ing at Impact, it's getting better.

Finally, got rid of that six sided ring. New management. Good production. Good roster. No spoiler, but Austin Aries is back...rumors of Brian Cage signing.That's a big one for me, I love Cage.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not watching weekly yet, but I'm getting ready to watch last nights "One Night Only" show, and i'm expecting to enjoy it.

If I don't, I take everything back and I'm sorry

Haha, no idea. I never saw the previous renditions. I was a lapsed wrestling fan for pretty much their entire existence. Started watching when Matt broke, and stopped when the Hardys left. Now I'm just keeping an eye on them, watching a show here and there.

They had their first set of TV tapings under the new regime of Callis and D'more so I'll be checking them out. 

 

They seriously just need to steer the company towards the way NJPW has been doing things, long term build up with good storylines. Make the X-Divison exciting again, put a big focus on the X Division as it was what put the company on the map in the first place.

This Trevor Lee fellow is newish to the X-division. My second time seeing him, but he's pretty good.

This isn't the first time they've gotten rid of that six sided ring. Some asshole will bring it back again in four years.

Might start watching if AA is back. He carried TNA for like two years before going to the WWE.

Aries did the right thing, IMO. He never wanted to be part of the Cruiserweight division and got out while the getting was good. Neville is finally doing the same.

Marlo Sansfield - People might laugh at this but it's always been booked better than WWE. I stopped watching it just because there was too much product to keep up with and the top performers in the WWE are worth watching over the TNA guys but as far as storylines and booking TNA is much better than WWE.

I keep waiting for Gail Kim to give birth to a hand.

I don't know about always. The first how many ever years Jeff Jarrett was the face of the company. If it weren't for the xdivision tna wouldn't have survived those dark years.

Then they brought in old farts like Hogan, Sting, and Flair.....dyed Aj Styles hair blonde. Brought in nearly every living ecw wrestler.

THIS

He reminds me of a mix between the Rock, Austin, and Flair. He has come a long way with his mic skills in a short amount of time.

Not really a secret, just nobody cares about him

See this is the problem. TNA doesn't exist anymore. Besides some of the talent, everything has changed.

Just heard earlier they're looking to start touring.

TNA from 2007 to 2017 is probably the worst cumulative 10 years from any company ever, and I don't think it's close

That's what I hear. I saw a little of it in 2016-early 2017.

Good thing they're not around anymore.

Eli Drake is way more polished now, then when I was watching last year. He's a really good talker...but I really wish he would drop the "Dummy yeah". That grinds my gears.
