TNA Looking to Rebound

*Note: This column was written before TNA’s Pay-Per-View last night.

After two weeks of being on Monday nights, TNA’s Impact has been a mixed bag of both goodness and crap. Here’s a list of things Review Fix Editor-In-Chief Patrick Hickey Jr. is looking for this Monday for TNA’s ship to get sailing in the right direction.

5- Defend every title: I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, TNA needs to have PPV quality Monday nights in order to keep up with the WWE, as fans will rather watch RAW than anything else, they have to be forced to make a change and will not simply get bored and change the channel. TNA stepping up and making a statement that the fans deserve to see great matches for free should and will change the momentum for a small enough time for newer fans to get introduced to the brand.

4- Get Sexier: I mean this both literally and figuratively. With the great-looking knockouts the company has, these women should be plastered all over the show and should be incorporated into as many storylines as they can. The fact that they can all wrestle only cements this notion more.

3- Continue to develop the Bischoff and Hogan angle: There’s some drama there and Hogan seems to have a team developing in Rob Van Dam, Jeff Hardy and Abyss. Bischoff feels out of the loop and naturally, his TV persona is one that shouldn’t be trusted. It would be incredibly interesting to see what can be put together here and with the amount of talent the company has, it wouldn’t be difficult to get a company-wide war brewing.

2- Get Ric Flair and Hogan out of the ring:
While much credit should be given to both of these guys, who have been putting their bodies on the line for over a half century combined, they need to take a seat and let the youngsters do the leg work out there. Both have the ability to be excellent managers and on-screen executives, due to their charisma, but no one wants to see these guys getting bloodied up anymore.

1- More Mr. Anderson: The guy deserves the push he never got in the WWE. His wrestling style is tailor-made for the company and his ability on the mic make him in practically a league of his own when compared to the other youngster stars in the company.
