This week marks the expansion of the podcast page into a full community-driven feature. We have decided to roll this all into one major feature where our awesome community is the major contributor. As we continue, we will look for ways to involve you all more and more. Please look below and you will see the debut of both Sound Off and TNA Take. We want to hear from you, so feel free to discuss the podcast and reactions to the Sound Off question. You will also see Mr. Shues is back with the debut TNA Take. Enjoy!
Sit Back and Enjoy the Ride
When I read the “news” stories about what happens within. TNA I can’t help but laugh when I see the Internet get whipped into a fury over their latest gripe about something TNA is doing. The most recent and glaring example of the Internet getting it wrong would be last year in May. I remember this specifically because I checked my Facebook news feed while on vacation and was greeted by a “news report” stating that Destination America was going to cancel Impact Wrestling in September. I was slightly hung over from the night before and decided that I would check out the comments section of the post just for entertainment, and of course, everyone was tripping over themselves declaring that TNA would die. Fast forward to September and we later find out that TNA will remain on Destination America through the end of 2015. Two months after that announcement TNA announced that they were moving to Pop.
I guess you are thinking to yourself, “Why the hell is he bringing this up and what is his point?” Well the truth is as fans and human beings we want to know what is going on with our favorite program. We are curious by nature and at times are fascinated by even the most trivial of matters. Some want to know because they do not want to be invested in a product that might not live to see the end of the year, however others may want to revel in the destruction and failure of others. TNA Wrestling has defied the odds and has survived what WCW and ECW could not and for that TNA, their staff, and talent should be commended. I know how tempting it is to react to news about our favorite programing, but like honest Abe allegedly said, “The problem with quotes on the Internet is that it is hard to verify their authenticity.” Take the news you read about TNA with a grain of salt because the reality is that TNA is a privately owned company, so there is no real way of really knowing what goes on within the company. That being said, sit back and enjoy the ride.
