You make a lot of good points man. Jeff Hardy was in TNA before, but his stay was short lived because of bad decisions on his part! Hogan was a part of a storyline promotion that never happened with Jeff Jarret. But now they have a chance to do it again. I also agree about TNA vs McMahon deep pockets. But, if TNA continues to do well and gets a Monday time slot, maybe their own billionaire owner Bob Carter will open the bank account like Ted Turner did with WCW. IMO, TNA's success against the WWE will depend on how much Carter is willing to spend.
By the way, there is a great interview with Rob Van Dam on Youtube where he talks about the WWE, TNA, , his drug bust with Sabu, and his thoughts on weed. It's a very cool interview did in his house with some amatuer wrestling reporter. Check it out if you get a chance. I also follow him on his site robvandam.com, and hope he will eventually be in TNA. He's one of my all time favs and one of the coolest cats ever!
