I dont know if anyone on here is a wrestling fan. Im a huge one. Yeah Im a wrestling mark. I dont watch it anymore since I dont have cable but I play the games. Havent played SVR 08 tho but Im happy to report that June 18th TNA Impact will be coming out for The 360...finally!! And even better is the company that is creating it has stated that in an interview that they want to make it work like the AKI Engine used in No Mercy. If thats true it should be awesome!!!

    You know what funny about that? TNA is again using more talent that once worked for WWE.

      That is true. Ive pretty much quit watching it in general but Id rather watch TNA. I usually watch my older dvds or stuff my friends give me.

        Its background noise for me. If something better is on, I'll watch that.

          Imo, TNA sucks compared to WWE. Sting, Nash, Angle, Booker T, etc were all great back in the day, but they're washed up now. They've got some good young talent, but WWE has more. Orton, Edge, Kennedy, Carlito and Hardy are better than anybody right now on the TNA roster. TNA to me is like the new WCW, problem is, the guys who once made that company great have been slowed by age or injury.

          I do think the TNA video game will be better though. Especially if what they say about using the AKI-style gameplay is true. THQ has forgotten how to make good WWE games.

            oldschoolgamer-

            i have to strongly disagree with a lot of the claims you made about TNA. while i personally like WWE better as well, it's unfair to say that TNA sucks. Angle is ABSOLUTELY NOT washed up, and is in fact leading the TNA brand quite well. he's in the prime of his career, and has recently had some excellent matches (see bound for glory 2007 among others) and will continue to have good matches.
            Aside from angle, Christian cage is head and shoulders above where he was in WWE, along with guys like tomko. they hardly ever got within sight of the main event in the WWE, and are now showing that they are excellent marquee guys. As far as overall talent goes, yeah WWE obviously has more, cause they have more booking spots and TV time for more guys. But you cant deny that TNA does have a lot of other great talent such as AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Jay Lethal, and almost the entire X division, something the WWE lost when they got rid of the cruiserweights for the most part. TNA isnt on WWE's level as far as recognition goes, but purely based on the in ring performances of each company, TNA has been better as of late, mostly because that is what the focus of their show is. I'll give you the fact that some washed up guys have showed up in TNA from WWE (scott hall, test, dustin rhodes/blackreign) but for the most part the guys who made the switch end up doing really well.

            that rant aside though, i agree that the TNA game should be pretty good as well, and i'm looking forward to getting it.
            Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

              Angle isn't near as good as he used to be imo. I've caught some of his recent matches because I have some friends who like TNA so I was watching a little bit with them. I do like Samoa Joe and Christian Cage and I'd agree that what happened to Christian in WWE was a disgrace. Styles is good too. The rest of the roster, I really don't care for.

              Most important though, TNA's divas are not as hot as the WWE's divas. :)

                WWE was sooooo much better when it was WWF. I'm tired of watching it.

                But, I saw the videos for the TNA game and I can NOT WAIT to get it.

                  I stopped watching WWF after the Attitude Era. I used to love those games though - especially those made by THQ on the N64. I'll have to get back into wrestling...

                      I was gonna start paying more attention to WWE again but since Cena came back on Sunday and won the Royal Rumble (Sorry to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet) I don't think I'll bother.

                      I hope Orton kicks his ass during their title match though.

                        Hacks like Cena are the reason WWE isn't close to as awesome as it was during the "Attitude" era when all the top guys actually had talent. Cena is a joke. They should have Orton win at the next PPV, but they won't, they'll have that loser Cena win and he'll hold the belt until at least May 2009.

                          Yeah John Cena sucks. It was cool when he was rapping and actually being entertaining. And when I mean rapping I mean when he dissed his opponents. Not his actual music. In ring tho he is atrocious.
