We also reported here that TNA broke yet another record with it’s rating from this past Thursday’s edition of Impact, yet does that mean what they are doing is good for business? Gilbertti claims it does because you can’t argue ratings. Konnan disagrees and thinks that TNA’s product is lacking right now.
“Stone Cold” Shark Boy – a clever move on TNA’s part due to the fact that people are responding well to it early on or a pathetic and unoriginal attempt of character progression for Sharkie? Kevin Kelly recently had a fan email that was, let’s say, “less” than supportive.
In Kevin’s most recent column that can be found HERE, he discussed what TNA could learn from UFC coming off of the UFC fight between Lesnar and Mir. He calls out Gilbertti (who hasn’t?) and puts down TNA’s creative offering his own input on how more “reality” in TNA could make it a better product. The following is part of an email from one of Kelly’s biggest fans:
Your column on TNA proves you are a true idiot.
TNA crowds (and not just in Orlando), the internet community, and every friend I have talked to, absolutely loves the Sharkboy and Jay Lethal gimmicks. Maybe if you turned in more than once every few months, you’d realize they are more over than half of the other wrestlers. Wrestling cannot be entirely serious or nobody would watch it, look how it was back in the day. You need gimmicks, you need entertainment AS WELL AS good wrestling that matters.
Although, you seem to be out of touch with today’s wrestling. But who could blame you, you really haven’t done anything in the biz in years.”
Kevin Kelly has responded and now asks you, the visitors, what you think. Do you agree with his column or do you agree with the fan? Keep the debate going and join the discussion today!
