I dropped out of TNA around the time Matt Hardy left. They've had a lot of changes since then. My understanding is that the wrestling is usually decent but everything else varies wildly. They basically had all of Lucha Underground with them for a while so that was probably more good rasslin.

But I'm at the point now where I'm more apt to watch a rasslin documentary or interview than to watch 2 or 3 weekly shows of the same company back to back. I think I've seen every trick a wrestling show can pull and I just want to see a good match or two every now and then. Maybe it's just 2020 and I don't have enough energy to take in fake dramatics? Or maybe the shows are so doggone inefficient at getting to the point that I can't seem to make it 'feel like' its 'worth my time'? I don't know.
