Not really sure if this was real or work, I'll guess it was planned though.

What a pointless work that was by Velvet Sky as what can come of it? Very little.

� Spike TV has given TNA more of a green light to go "more hardcore", whatever that means.

Being like the old ECW would be the most obvious reason.
 
Maybe TNA want to up their adult content and make it more like a show for 18 plus.

That wouldnt be a bad idea, since the adult market would be easier to snag than the younger market, as some of the adult fans want something more hardcore. However, do they really have enough talent in shape to pull it off?
It would be a real challenge to try and take WWE's younger market, as the company has a stranglehold on that market with the likes of Cena and Mysterio.

Is that a typo or am I reading you wrong>?


I wouldnt mind TNA being more like ECW because all these years after ECW everyone stills talks about it and would love it back.

Yes, you are reading it wrong. I said it wouldnt be a bad idea.

I wouldnt mind TNA being more like ECW, because surely we all miss the chair shots, kendo sticks to the head, and a good table or two smashed, along with all the blood that soon followed.
People still talking about ECW doesnt surprise me, as it was a unique brand that neither WWE/F nor WCW could imitate. 

As I said though, the only thing that concerns me is if TNA has the talent that is young enough and dedicated enough to put themselves through such a beating if they were to make TNA more like ECW.

The thing about it, though, is it could be terrific, or it could easily go too far and become terrible. It's good that TNA is taking itself in a direction that is clearly edgier than WWE's usually badly-done PG environment (how many times have I said WWE often respect the wrong side of PG?), but if they try to make this thing on the same level of hardcore as the original ECW, that's not good for careers, and that's not good for business.

Why wouldn't it be good for careers? Simple; look at the physical condition of many of the old ECW alumni. Sure, they can do the bloody extreme match on occasion, but are the current TNA talent
really built for that every week any more than the guys were in the original ECW? Yes, this even includes a couple of guys who have shown that they'll never shy from it, namely Kurt Angle and Ric Flair. Both of those two guys simply cannot blade without looking like they're about to die as it is, and you know they're gonna blade because it's just what they do. Kurt does it in certain matches to be even more badass than necessary, and Ric does it because it's the only way he can physically get over. Also,  The pattern says they continue to blade and it probably gets worse in an ECW environment.

Why's it bad for business? Because after a good while the hardcore stuff will have no meaning anymore. The WWF Attitude era lived for the hardcore, edgy stuff, and yes, they had people bleed a lot, but already TNA typically has people bleed even more than WWF Attitude. And already people have complained that the blood doesn't mean as much to segments and matches anymore on Impact. Take TNA too close to ECW, and the blood itself will eventually mean nothing more than cannon fodder for hardcore junkies to salivate about and others to not care for.

I'm not saying this can't be good, or that I haven't thought about the pros. But I've also thought about the cons as well, and since everybody's ready to bring up the pros, I just thought I'd fill up the other side of the argument. Carry on, peeps.

Quote Source: The Wrestling Observer

There is a ton of stuff going on behind the scenes right now within TNA Wrestling. As of this writing, there is no deal between Paul Heyman and TNA. Talks are ongoing with Dixie Carter doing most of the talking with Paul.

Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan were both not at the pay-per-view and both will not be at TV this week. According to a source, Bischoff is at a bike rally and Hogan is recovering from recent back surgery. One source also noted that Hogan wasn't going to be there if the Heyman deal got close as he seems to have some issues with it.

It should also be noted that TNA president Dixie Carter held a company meeting today before the iMPACT! tapings, but it was just to tell everyone to tighten up their ring work. Paul Heyman was not mentioned although he was on the mind of management and talents.

We hope to have more shortly. Stay tuned as things may get quite interesting in the coming weeks. This is backstage wrestling politics to a tee.

At least Hogan had a legit reason for not being at the tapings, unlike Bischoff.
 
Hogan will be feeling like he's about to be turfed out of his well paid position.
 
Dixie who's never worked a match in her life telling the workers to tighten up LOLLOLLOL
