    Is that the parody they made?

    Nope. This is what aired on Impact and closed the show. It’s supposed to make you want to buy a $35 pay per view.

    Oh okay, yeah no need to explain I watch Impact, the video just wasn’t loading for me that’s all. Have you seen the parody that EC3, Eli Drake and Tyrus did together?

    I personally don’t mind the storyline, right now I think wrestling as a whole has been the strongest its ever been in a while (which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good, just better then usual).

    Omg Matt Hardy has lost his mind if thinks being that over the top is a good idea to sell a Hardy v Hardy feud. Like all the general ideas behind his sentences are a good basis for a feud but the random big words and stupid accent kill it. Yikes TNA really is desperate.

    Well, it did make me want to see it, if only to see how much worse it could possibly get. That was a big ol’ pile of contrived trash.

    I’ll just wait until the match airs on Impact for free (we know it will, eventually).

    You know, with all these Facebook pages that are soley dedicated to throwing out “ironic” meme crap getting hundreds of thousands of likes each, it might be better for TNA to tap into that sort of humour instead of trying to be something they’re not good enough to be and failing miserably.

    I mean, this video is seriously the best thing to happen to tna in years. It’s better to be Plan 9 From Outer Space or the Eye of Argon than it is to be some forgettable “meh” footnote in history, and if you can tap into a vein of intentionly bad you can cross the valley to the field of being so bad that it’s good. “I want to watch this to see how stupid it can get” is a common line coming from people who have seen this video, and that’s money so long as TNA keep the straight face and never turn to the camera with a wink.

    Using a strategy of it’s so bad, it’s good only works short term.

    Sharknado 1 was very popular due it being incredibly dumb. I think the second was even more popular. But the ratings dropped by over a million for the third one.

    Sharknado is helped by only having 3 movies (with a 4th on the way, which should continue the downward trend). TNA is on every week. You can’t do continuous crap and expect people to watch every week. If TNA tried this, their ratings would plummet even more.

    Sharknado is self aware, the hardys and Dixie carter aren’t, or at least they aren’t right now. What kills Sharknado is its marketing basically just being “lol this movie is shit, come see how shit it is lol”, whereas TNA gives off the impression that they think this Hardy boys video is a legit serious deal which tips it into the funny category.

    The ability to intentionally keep doing this though, especially when everyone is laughing at it, is something I don’t believe TNA actually has. Bottom line is that if they can keep the public thinking “oh god they’re serious about this” it’ll still be shared around on sites like this and on colt cabanas Facebook and all over the place.

    It’s a comedic rule; silly people doing silly things isn’t funny, serious people doing serious things isn’t funny, but serious people doing silly things seriously is funny – it’s always been that way and it always will be.
