Going to start a new thread instead so we don't distract from my VERY IMPORTANT 2003 TNA recaps in the Vol. 1 thread (which I should resume tonight).
I feel like that stretch from Spike TV debut in late '05 to some point in 2007 is simultaneously the peak of TNA's relevance and when I knew that they couldn't challenge WWE. A lot of people will misattribute Hogan signing and the faux Monday Night Wars but I don't think that's really the case, even though I would guess they had more viewers in the 2010-11 than the mid '00s. What made WCW challenge WWF in the mid '90s wasn't necessarily Hogan signing or the debut of Nitro but when they got two current WWF main eventers to jump ship.BFG 2006 is on a shortlist of the best shows the company ever did. One of the most surprising parts, given today's way of cards going? Not a single match broke 20 minutes, with most in the 11-15 window.
