Anyone else think that TNA could overtake WWE in a few years?

Update: Even More on the Pending Lawsuits Between TNA & Scott Steiner

by Nick Paglino
December 03, 2012


As we reported yesterday, the scheduled 11/30 hearing between Scott Steiner and TNA, to continue ongoing litigation, was canceled the night before.

PWInsider.com is now reporting the hearing was canceled as TNA informed the court that "the parties anticipate an Agreed Order of Dismissal with respect to the Defendant's Counterclaim."

In light of the above update, it appears as if TNA and Steiner are close to settling Steiner's counterclaim that TNA breached its contract with him by failing to provide accounts of royalties.

Despite this apparent settlement, however, there are two remaining pieces of litigation still in play between TNA and Steiner. TNA originally filed a lawsuit against Steiner for lashing out via Twitter at the company and stars like Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff and more. Additionally, Steiner filed a second counterclaim against TNA, alleging that Jeff Hardy was intoxicated during a match he worked against Steiner at a house show event in Dearborn, Michigan. Both of these suits are not covered by the settlement noted above.

Hulk Hogan Named One of the Least Influential People of 2012

by Nick Paglino
December 03, 2012


GQ Magazine has published an article ranking the 25 least influential people of 2012, and TNA star Hulk Hogan has made the list. The article describes the 25 names as "a collection of people so uninspiring that we should round them all up and stick them on an iceberg," and Hogan is described by the writer as follows:

    When I was a kid, I wanted to be just like Hulk Hogan. Funny how getting caught banging his best friend's wife on tape and then finding out that his best friend was allegedly the one taping it has now diminished my admiration. Kudos to Hulk for having a big ol' d*ck, though. That thing is thicker than a turnbuckle.

What's Bothering Me: TNA Morale, Rhodes' Injury, Ryback's New Streak

by Chris Cash
December 03, 2012


#3. "TNA Morale Is High"

I hate stories that claim the entire locker room morale of a company is either high or low and then goes on to state the reason(s) why. Why does it bother me so much? Well, there's the obvious point of it being a bogus story to begin with, because to come to that conclusion, you would need that opinion being given to you from at least the majority of the roster. I doubt that was the case. It was likely hearsay information provided by a couple of people, possibly less.

Secondly, looking at the report in context, why would TNA morale be so high right now? Because they're booking six months in advance? Because storylines have been so consistent? Or is it even related to the product? Maybe talent is happy right now because it's the holiday season and Christmas tends to put more smiles on more faces every year.

I'm not trying to bash TNA and the high collective spirits they reportedly have backstage, but it amounts to nothing in the end if Dixie can't pull from it and grow the company further. Their rating bounced back after a six-year low and that's great. Airing on Thanksgiving will always suck. However, it's what they consistently bounce back to that concerns me.

For years now, TNA has not been able to escape the 1.0 average. One could speak of it positively in that it hasn't dropped significantly in that same time period, but I can't look at it that way. To me, it's a major disappointment. There are only two major wrestling companies on TV today and one of those is TNA. The fact that they haven't been able to tap into WWE's fanbase more than they have, in the amount of time they've had to do it, should cause for constant frustration in everyone involved, from top to bottom.

In a way, TNA is absolutely competing with WWE. And dare I say they even have the resources and tools necessary to compete on a much higher level, similar to the way WCW did in the 90's. They even have the one man given credit for taking WCW and growing it to such a point (Bischoff, not Hogan). Furthermore, they don't have any restrictions such as a PG rating to deal with either. Yet, ratings don't budge.

Maybe morale is high, but I can't see how it's related to the product and overall success of the company. Could be because the guys know Velvet Sky and her ass are returning sometime next year. That's something to be happy about.

Funny though - if it weren't for the ongoing lawsuit between WWE and TNA, Velvet would likely be on her way to WWE by now. At least, that would be her first choice if given the chance.

*Exclusive Spoiler:* Another Name to be Revealed as a TNA Aces & Eights Member

by Nick Paglino
December 03, 2012

WZ has learned, according to a TNA source, that the current creative plan is to eventually reveal Garett Bischoff as a member of Aces & Eights.

While the source could not confirm whether or not Bischoff will be the leader of the group, we were told "TNA officials think Garett in Aces & Eights is gonna be this big reveal, and he looks like he should be pumping gas. He gets zero pop."

We will continue to update this developing story as more information becomes available.
