    Again TNA stars mentioning WWE. Will TNA ever get the point and stop them? It makes them look so minor league.

      I don’t know Derek. Maybe the atmosphere just isn’t as suffocating as in WWE. They work less dates, the road schedule isn’t nearly as brutal. Maybe they’re just more relaxed and guess what? Who ignores Wrestlemania? Boy, TNA just can’t win with some people.

      • Derek says:

        And there not even on WWE’s radar. It may be nicer to work in TNA but if they handle themselves like lesser stars they’ll be perceived that way. Who can ignore WrestleMania? No one, but if you’re their competition, it’s probably not a good idea to help them promote the show. Acting that way, no they can’t win with me or likely the majority of wrestling fans that haven’t already tuned out. Act like like your the minor league, then you’ll stay in the minor league. Sad really because competition is the only thing that makes Vince try. TNA is definitely not any competition though.

          She was asked for her reaction and gave it. Why is that acting “minor league”? Her generic compliment of one WWE match is not really that valuable in the grand scheme of things. If The Rock or Cena suddenly told everyone to start watching TNA, that would be a comment worth reporting.

          • Derek says:

            Worth reporting because it comes from somebody in the major leagues. It means nothing in the grand scheme of things because they undermine their company all the time. Look bud, if you can’t immediately understand why its bad for business to give your competition a plug, then I need not waste any more of my time on this because it’s obvious you never will. Your entitled to your opinion but you’re not going to convince me of that garbage.

          • Sancho says:

            It doesn’t seem like a good idea from a business standpoint. TNA “stars” do that all the time and look like buffoons because of it. Instead of talking about themselves or the next big event in TNA, they advertise for the competition. TNA will never ‘get it’.

          • suto_vu says:

            “Bud”, it sounds like you know your stuff, but you don’t have to talk down to me. I’m not impressed. I just don’t over-analyze comments a TNA star makes about another wrestler. I’ve seen Jericho, the Rock, a lot of WWE people make positive remarks about people currently in TNA. Wrestlers mostly have a common bond no matter which promotion they’re with. It’s tough for people online to understand that, and I don’t know why.

          • Derek says:

            How is common sense an over-analyzation? Their bond means nothing from a business standpoint. It’s like if I were to come on the comments and talk about how great another spoiler site is because my friends work there. The way you make this sound, then that would be acceptable? Not only would I be made to stop such comments due to their obvious business ramifications, but I’d likely be removed from doing anything involved with the site. And rest assured that nothing I do is to impress anyone. I simply commented because of how ignorant and obvious not shilling to competition is. Oh and bud isn’t a term of endearment, I call you bud simply because I don’t know you.

          • suto_vu says:

            I think we’re just looking at it from two different angles. That’s all. It’s really not like your comparison at all, but that’s just what I think. When I see Chad Ochocinco of the Cincinatti Bengals comment about great it would be to play for Rex Ryan and the Jets, I take it with a grain of salt. It doesn’t mean that much because he’s under contract, he has an amount of money he would want to make, etc. He’s also friendly with guys on other teams. Just because one player (or wrestler in this case) compliments another wrestler, it is not at all shilling to another promotion. That’s all I’m saying.

          • Derek says:

            Its not just about a compliment, its about mentioning the competition at all in a good light. If they want to compliment a friend, why is it necessary to do it in a national forum? When a TNA wrestler says they cant wait for WM, it is a shill. I’ve grown tired of making the same point over and over, and what is obvious to me, can be missed on you and I can accept that. I will accept your opinion regardless of my opinion on it, but I’d like to point out that you replied to me. Glad you can think for yourself, but you’re not going to get me to agree with that bull mess.

          • Derek says:

            On a side note, I’m still willing to put that 100 on whether or not Rock will wrestle at WM. He can say whatever he wants but I’m not buying it. When Rock actually wrestles in a 1 fall contest it will be hyped and not a last minute surprise I can guarantee. We’ll just have to wait and see, but I won’t be surprised by his lackluster involvement on a wrestling scale.
