That was more of an elaboration on the comment of preferring to see the rock n roll express over rock NES. I'm just not to big on those guys in comparison to others on the PWG roster. And while hogan and Nash arent drawing shit, it's those kinds of names that has kept TNA on tv. Unfortunate but true. Thats partbif the reason why TNA is still on tv and Roh isnt. Apaet from all the corporate bs. While I rather see the lo ki vs Chris Daniels main events from TNA's infancy, the world rather see "established stars" But that's just how things appear to me. I couldnt honestly tell you I understand wrestling or wrestling fans. I don't understand how people who seen Davey Richards vs Chris Hero or Low Ki vs American Dragon could think that HHH and The Undertaker are good workers. Or how anyone who has paid $25 for excellent seats at a PWG show would pay more the double for shitty seats at an even shittier WWE show. This is pretty much what I said about ECW about 15 years ago. Man I went on a bit of a tyraid here. Sorry everybody.
You got to give the Devil his due and in their prime, Taker and Hunter were damn good at what they did. They were good, not great, wrestlers, but they knew how to tell a story inside that ring and cut a damn good promo. And, let's face it, wrestling is kind of like a soap opera. Those guys knew the ins and outs and how to make people get into the story. Is someone like Danielson or Hero damn great wrestlers. Yes. But can they build a story, a feud, long term and make people give a damn about it. People have all different kinds of ideas of what truly is wrestling, but at the end of the day, it's about the big payoff. And you can't knock Taker and Hunter down on that because they have had some of the best payoffs in the business, especially against a guy like Mick Foley.
And having Hogan and Nash on TV isn't what is keeping TNA on TV. I mean, before Hogan, ratings were the same. So that's just a load of crap.
Why do people pay hundreds of dollars to see professional sports when they can basically get it cheaper to see college players play their hearts out instead of watching pros half ass it on the court? It's because of the name draw. WWE is like the NBA/NFL/MLB/etc while PWG is like the college or high school sport of it. People pack that in because they want to see the big name stars in action. Like it or not, WWE is wrestling/professional wrestling/sports entertainment/two guys fake fighting over nothing whatever the hell you want to call it. It's why WWE pays their employees a decent wage while PWG probably pays them a day's wage at best.
