psychoandy replied to your post:Can’t reply to that “I’m an adult” post, but… let’s say 40, just to be safe. -_-What is an adult, but a miserable pile of secrets?
A miserable pile of bills? D:
Bills they secretly aren’t paying?
I’ve heard it apparently potentially hurts the wrestlers a lot more than the regular 4-sided ring because of like…the extra scaffolding and stuff?
Yeah I read that too. Dixie Carter even flat out said “Yeah all the stuff we said about the ring being able to let you do more is crap”. As she said, it’s ONLY advantage is if someone is flipping channels they stop to go ” what in the holy hell is that thing” which can mean a lot, but doesn’t seem to outway all the other disadvantages.
I like the six-sided ring, because it makes TNA stand out from every other wrestling comapny. WWE, Chikara, and ROH all use four-sided rings. But a six-sided ring is different, and it’s something you can notice right away.
TNA is only the #2 wrestling company because they have more TV exposure than anyone except WWE, but their product has been a really bad WWE-lite for the last few years. If they’re seriously trying to create a unique identity, I’m all for whatever changes they want to make to distinguish themselves from WWE, as long as it’s something that keeps the wrestlers safe.
I know a few wrestlers have been very vocal about not liking the six-sided ring, but it’s really only been a few. Most of the TNA roster haven’t made public statements one way or the other.
If the six-sided ring was really all that bad, it wouldn’t have lasted for seven years, the first time around.
