Ten Reasons Why the TNA World Title Series is Their Worst Idea YetFor the tens of people like me still watching TNA Wrestling, you have come to see a massive 32 wrestler Series for the TNA World Title, but most of us probably groaned at the announcement of this series.
The Top Ten
Some may ask, "Why are women in the World Title Series? " and th simple answer is that the male roster simply wasn't big enough. There are only 27 male wrestlers on the TNA Roster, and they had to bring in Austin Aries and four female wrestlers to fill the series. If your roster isn't big enough to do something, then the last thing you should even think about doing is that.
This series could actually be understandable if the World Champion (in this case Matt Hardy) had been injured or was leaving TNA, but he isn't, in fact, he's in the series himself. This means that the series was completely unnecessary and reeks of desperation for ratings.
With this World Title Series, there will be many bad matches because far too many bad pairings will be made. We've already gotten a taste of the horrendous matches that will occur (Spud vs Grado was the worst TNA match I ever fully watched).
This World Title Series will take approximately 2 months to complete meaning it will end somewhere between mid December to early January. TNA will be cancelled by Destination America this Feburary, meaning that unless a new T.V. deal is made, the newly crowned world champion will only be on T.V. for 1-2 months.
For 2 months, there will probably be nothing but singles matches. Don't expect to see Tag Team, X-Division, or even gimmick matches. Just plain vanilla singles matches. While singles matches aren't at all bad, 18 hours of nothing but singles matches can become too much of a good thing.
Even if TNA had a bigger roster, this series would still be too large. This could easily be made more manageable if only 16 people were involved in the series.
Why do there even have to be 8 Round Robin Tournaments before the single elimination tournament? It just overcomplicates things. The best way to go about this is to have the 16 Wrestler Single Elimination tournament, and forget about the leagues.
You could count on one hand the number of people who have even the slimest chance of winning the World Title Series. The only convincing winners are EC3, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, and Drew Galloway.
EC3 winning would render him losing the title at all completely pointless.
Matt Hardy winning would make the series entirely pointless (as if it isn't already)
The series was taped back in July. Since then, there have been gimmick changes and title changes, and some people leaving the company. Due to this, (as you may have seen) Gail Kim not being Women's Champion, and Mahabali Shera still in his Khoya gear.
Spoiler Alert: EC3 makes it to the finals against either Matt Hardy or Drew Galloway.
But let's face it, you probably already knew that.
