Another Sunday has arrived and you know what that means it's time once again to again to go So Far Back. For this edition of So Far Back Sunday we go back to a time when TNA was just beginning the budget cuts that plague them through most of last year and were also once again attempting to rebuild the X-Division. Hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane:
I thought TNA Wrestling was budget cutting? This is also why the company is thinking about taking Impact off the road in 2014 and keeping at a central location. TNA has let go of numerous wrestlers over the last few months and there have also been reports of the, possibility of TNA letting Hogan go. The point with Hogan will not be confirmed until it is either reported they signed a new contract or when his contract is up and he's not coming back. Now would getting Hogan's contract out of the way allow more flexibility that is very likely but how much flexibility is uncertain. How much would it take to help push TNA towards the right side?
With the above headline it seems TNA is looking to once again rebuild the once prominent X-Division. Looking at this would remind most people of when WCW tried to rebuild the Cruiserweight division. Only WCW tried it once this has to be at least the third time in 3 years TNA is attempting to rebuild said division. For those who remember back when Austin Aries held the title for a year or so and brought some importance back to the title. What happen to the importance will some new, fresh faces to help rebuild and reinvigorate the once extremely popular division who knows? I think it will take more than just a mix of old & new faces to help the X-Division, time will also play a factor. Which waiting seems like something TNA doesn't seem like doing just look at who they sign as free agents?
Just thought I would add this, I am not trying to be critical of TNA as I want to see them succeed because, I don't want to relive the dark age of wrestling where WWE is the only game in town. First before TNA starts spending an arm and a leg on a Big Name Free Agent like they have for a long time they should just do one thing instead. Look in OVW as they have a Training Academy for a reason, it's not a place to put people they don't want or have nothing for it's a place for people to hone their craft and get ready for the Big Show/TNA's Main Roster. If they have nobody down there either cut ties, look for potential prospects on the Indy Circuit, or Change the Developmental system. WWE changed who was in charge of developmental and it is much better, maybe TNA needs to do that.
