Wrestling can be so much more than it’s stereotypical, but often true archetype. The focus on character development and psychologically ‘real’ stories has meant that Impact has been television to be invested in, like any good TV show should be. Decay, the rise of the Matt Hardy brand, The Miracle and the double turn in EC3’S title programme have shown disciplined storytelling with ‘real’ consequences work. TNA’S product is the best it has been in years and it comes from investing in youth, in characters, in entertaining stories.
I hope all the doom and gloom reporting of TNA’S demise is just Internet blather. The TNA team deserve credit for their work, their work ethic and their passion for the oft-ridiculed world of wrestling. Here’s hoping for continued success and a bigger audience.
