How dumb can TNA be at this point? The Hardy's are the only thing that has kept them relevant in 2016....Well I can't wait to see Broken Matt vs. Bray because that would be some epic promo work.

The act is so hot that it could just continue just like that in another company. Well... all except WWE, who would never allow that. But considering the decisions TNA made in the recent past, I'm not surprised this happened. Quite frankly I couldn't care less.

When something is so over the top, I'm skeptical. And whenever anything gets out, it's because someone wants it to get out.

I have no knowledge of wrestling contracts, but why would they ask for 10% of the profits from other sources? The "Broken" character is Hardy's, not Impact's right?

Not saying that the new owners can't be this dumb, but it just seems...odd.

Honestly WWE has shown more signs of letting people be what made them popular over the past year....

They didn't change a lot of guys coming into the fold such as AJ, Shinsuke, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, Eric Young. It would be moronic of WWE to try to alter the Broken Matt Hardy character since it is so well known. They have let lesser known workers keep there original gimmicks lately.

I agree with Blackman. At best I believe we would only ever see a facsimile of the Broken Hardys characters in WWE. If one of their real sticking points was Creative Control then I doubt WWE is where they'd want to be. That is, after all, why they left in the first place

Now there's a guy who never got a fair shake in WWE and I would love to see back. I doubt it, but it'd be great

I hope not, but it seems like TNA can't catch a break.

I haven't watched TNA in years bar a once in a blue moon turn in due to Broken Hardys curiosity, but to me these departures felt like a possible silver lining. What you're doing isn't working; blow it up, cut costs and start anew. Focus on building a new crop of guys from the ground up, like you should've been doing all along.

Then I read this note from the Impact tapings that'll be happening tonight (likely SPOILER below in white):

Del Rio is at the tapings and has apparently signed a full-time deal with the company. That dude doesn't come cheap, and if he's coming in he'll almost certainly be pushed to the very top. So much for "rebuilding" or "youth movement."

TNA's going to die pretty soon anyway. Might as well watch it burn while it's still here.

I doubt they sign Del Rio. From what I've read TNA will absorb GFW and they will focus on pushing younger talent not wasting big money on well-known wrestlers.

If you want a good laugh go on Reby Hardy's twitter and read her TNA tirades. She's tearing them a hundred new holes.
