Has anyone converted?

I'm just curious if any of you die hard WWE fans have converted to TNA now that they seem to have all the "oldies but goodies." I know that my husband and I enjoy watching TNA more these days than WWE. The story lines on TNA aren't as great but they have all the good old guys from WWE, like Hulk Hogan, Rick Flair and many others!

I have been watching TNA for years as well as WWE. I am pretty much the type of fan that really watches no matter how bad it is. And believe me, in my time, I have seen some pretty bad wrestling. I really think that TNA has the tools to succeed and it can be a more intense form of wrestling, to combat the recent PGized WWE, but exactly how it utilizes them is another matter entirely. Although it is nice to see people like Flair, Hogan, Sting, Nash and the like, and even people from the glory days of ECW like Team 3D, RVD, and others, some of these wrestlers have lost a few steps. It can be great to see them every now and again in the ring but they are best utilized as personalities and mouthpieces. Also, they have much wisdom that can be useful for the next generation of competitors coming up. Ric Flair in particular is really showing his age these days but he is still the best promo in the business. His interaction with Jay Lethal as of late has been entertaining, especially last Thursday. TNA has a mix of the stars of yesteryear and some of the greatest young talents today. The real problem is management. Say what you want about Vince McMahon, but he knows how to run a business that makes money. It might not be the most entertaining at times and its a bit too kid friendly these days for various reasons, but Vince does generally know what makes him money. TNA has some entertaining moments but they have a three wheel car that can't even get out of the driveway and they need that fourth wheel. Of course, it is hard to really get too successful, because for most, WWE is wrestling and most people will not give another show a second look. Which is really a shame.

I used to watch TNA every once in awhile, but since Jeff Hardy went I watch it every Thursday and try to get in as many PPV's as I can. I still watch WWE Monday, Thursday and Friday...then my brother in laws get the PPV's as much as they can also. We are into wrestling no matter who it is and would like to see a few changes in TNA to get it more on their own storylines than seemingly taking from WWE. I see many WWE stars go to TNA and since my main boy is there, I am going to keep watching it.

I used to watch TNA earlier but now-a-days it doesn't interest me no more. It used to be fun earlier when there were more young wrestlers in TNA. But as I have seen some superstars move from WWE to TNA, the vice-versa has also happen. One thing still interesting about TNA is the newly formed alliance of Mr. Anderson and Jeff Hardy. I also played the game of TNA in ps2 and liked it storyline also. Although I am a big WWE fan and prefer watching it over TNA!!
