id like TNA to let a proper face be the champ for once, i was thinking the other day that every champion in the last year or so has been a heel, or turned heel to get the belt or the second they have it, angle, hardy, roode, whats wrong with the good guys staying good once in a while

Sting?

I agree that they should push somebody properly as a face though and let them have a lengthy run with the belt...not quite John Cena style, but then again TNA is a TV-14 show, not PG, so it could work a little better. James Storm would be my pick but it's something they'd probably never go with.

forgot about sting, but he wasnt champ for that long really, i think your right with James Storm, i think he is really underrated and under used, really good on the mic and a really good wrestler too

Sting held the TNA World Heavyweight belt for longer than anyone else during 2011, from February to June and then from July to August after dropping it to Mr Anderson for a month. Were we watching the same wrestling show? :?

really? didnt seem that long to me, think i may have not paid that much attention to sting, suppose i've only recently come to admire his work since the crazy idol thing. never seen that much of his previous work.

I’ll be there too. I had a good time at last year’s MEN show. I’ve also seen them in Liverpool and Coventry in years previous.

Do you go to any British wrestling shows?

Cool. There's a new promotion in Preston that's setting the world ablaze at the minute. I'm off to all 7 of thier scheduled shows this year.

PCW and Southside over the last year have flown up and it's been great watching them evolve. Both putting out good shows with a good talent base and good use of their few imports. Already put them as two of the best British Wrestling companies out there, just don't go all 1PW on us ;)

It’s a shame that Southside and PCW’s next shows fall on the same night. Both look like fantastic cards, but out of loyalty and geographical convenience, its PCW all the way for me.
