      I personally thought this Impact! was better than Raw. I actually like TNA better than WWE. Really hope TNA ratings improve and stays that way I don’t wanna just be stuck with WWE I want a little variety.

        i agree with some things like the pg-ness of the wwe and i like some of the things that TNA does amd they have a decent core of talent i just feel like there is 0 actual direction in TNA. Its not always the talents fault it is just a horribly managed operation
