I agree with you that Thursdays TNA Impact wasn't the best. But that's going to happen until they figure out storylines for all the new talent, and get the creative structure in place. Right now Bischoff and Hogan are still learning the ropes in TNA as far as talent and potential stories. Russo, Ferrera, and Matt Conway are still writing, while trying to incorporate ideas from Bischoff and Hogan. Then you have guys like Jarrett, Chris Park, and Mick Foley who have creative input. It's going to take a little time for the pieces to fall into place and start running smoothly.
As for Hogan not being there, he doesn't really need to. His contract calls for him to make a certain number of appearances this year, while doing promotional work and having creative input. The real mastermind is Bischoff. It's his vision that will take place. He will choose who stays, comes, and goes, with input from Hogan. Don't be fooled into thinking Hogan is in charge. It's Bichoff who made the deal with Spike and Bob Carter. And he is the one who negotiated Hogans deal.
As far as the mystery man at Genesis, my money is on Ken Anderson, but I could be wrong. Their has been a lot of talk about Sid showing up as well, which I hope doesn't happen. I hope it is Anderson, because this guy could be a bonafide superstar in TNA. There is also talk of another live Monday show on March 1st. TNA has to take things slowly and make sure they get it right. A lot of people want them to go on the road every week. I think they should take all PPVs on the road to better venues, but keep the weekly shows at the Impact Zone for now. Use the money to omprove the tv product and continue the advertising blitz.
