5 Reasons Why TNA Impact Was Better Than Monday Night Raw Yet Again

Why TNA Impact Beat Monday Night Raw Yet Again

TNA Impact once again topped WWE Monday Night Raw in my opinion. How do they possibly do it with what has happened recently? They have had three of their biggest stars leave the company. WWE hardly has had anybody leave with the exception of possibly CM Punk saying goodbye for good.

They have a limited staff. The same guys have to be shown every Thursday. WWE wrestlers, on the other hand, can be rotated to the point where you don't have to see the same guys every week. They have three shows all on different channels and bombard the airwaves.

The WWE has more money. It is obvious. They can afford to have some lame rappers to announce their pay-per-views. They can have Michael Strahan host their show, or have some old legends come back like Ric Flair for some cheap ratings boost.

TNA has ... well, Kurt Angle and that angry vein in his neck.

TNA has two measly hours every week to entertain. The WWE has three shows. Raw alone is three hours long. That is not to mention the frustrating pay-per-views they put on every month.

So why is TNA better? It is because TNA is holding on and barely surviving, whereas WWE is growing complacent. The whole WWE universe is upset because of the botched storylines, the stale themes and the direction that creative is going. The world is sick of seeing the same programming. CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, the WWE’s biggest stars, have both mentioned it. One may have left for good, and others will soon follow if they don't change.

That is why TNA is refreshing every week. I won’t listen to the rumors that TNA is drowning under the WWE’s massive waves. This Thursday's Impact was amazing and beat out the mold-encrusted Raw is War. Here are five reasons why.

5. Magnus Stepping Into a Heel Position

I said earlier that Magnus had to step it up now that he is the main heel, and he has. Orton, on the other hand, hugs his belt and looks weak. There is a fine line between weak and cunning, and Magnus has found it.

4. The Scientist and The Monster

Eric Young and Abyss put on a moving performance. They are TNA’s version of The Miz, Kofi Kingston and guys like Curtis Axel. They are mid-card guys, but their facial expressions, their wrestling and the brilliant story behind the mad scientist and the monster are making me clamor for more. When have we been able to say that about Curtis Axel lately?

3. Dixie Carter's Gang Is Entertaining

Yes, Dixie Carter is annoying, but her team is making up for her deficiencies. Rockstar Spud is TNA’s version of Brad Maddox, but he is far more entertaining. Also, EC3 has a wit about him that reminds me of the Rock when he started making wisecracks.

2. Bad Influence Good For TNA

The Gunner-James Storm story wore me out fast. What made them interesting on Thursday was their match against Kazarian and Christopher Daniels. These guys are instigators, and WWE has nobody who can get under someone's skin like this team can.

1. Other Wrestlers Step Up

Even with Jeff Hardy, Sting and AJ Styles out of the company, wrestlers like Bully Ray, Ken Anderson, Chris Sabin, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe stepped up and gave the fans in Scotland something worth cheering about. Batista simply gets boos and hisses!
