That would be.... BOGUS! The most BOGUS act they have ever done!

I watched a little bit of their recent "Sting vs Mystery Opponent (RVD)" match. I noticed that they only called him "RVD" and not "Rob Van Dam". Is that another of those weird trademark dealies they're trying to work around. Sorta' like "Brother Ray of Team 3D"?
I don't think so. His entrance music says Rob Vab Dam.

Speaking of Mr. Monday Night, he won the TNA belt Monday night from AJ Styles. Are there any opinions on this?

Never been a fan of big title changes on free T.V., but I'm sure TNA's PPV buyrates are shitty at best, so you can't fault them for trying something.

Apparently AJ wasn't too high on having to give up the belt as he did. But I think RVD as champion is a good move

It was a great match, and I think RVD will be good as champ

I do like AJ as much as RVD though

I think right now they are more concerned about the TV ratings than PPV buys, so I think it was the right move

I don't have a problem with the title changing hands on free TV as ong as it doesn't happen often. My problem is more related to build up. Why not build up RVD when they brought him in as a title contender? It just proves that TNA only thinks in the short term, and that is NOT a way to run a wrestling company. You have to have long term goals . They can be slightly fluid, but they need to be long term.

That's my rant about playing to ratings.

The title change could be good if they run it right. They way Styles milked the ending leads to possibilities of some good RVD/Styles build. Styles wins the title - who celebrates? Daniels and a bunch of random people. RVD wins the title, who comes out? Hogan and Dixie with the belt and a bunch of ECW/WWE boys.

Could lead to some possibilities.

Okay, here's a simple booking mistake. Lethal does an AMAZING Flair impersonation. I mean so good it was insane. Flair comes down, feels disrespected and mix it up.

What TNA does: Send in "Team Flair" to beat up Lethal and then "Team Hogan" to fight off Team Flair.

What they could have done that would have actually put over Jay Lethal and made the show more interesting: Have Lethal put Flair in the Figure Four, and then walk out disappointed as Flair tells Lethal "you just made the biggest mistake of your life." Then have Flair, through Team Flair, taunt and torture Lethal for a few months, until he gets tired of it and challenges Flair, who then tries to avoid Lethal until they have a big blowoff match at a PPV.

A great segment that could have made them money, and they wasted it.

I bet in their minds, Lethal just being in the ring and cutting that promo to Flair's face was putting him over.

TNA sucks.
