TNA's going head to head with Raw on January 4th. Hogan's debuting in TNA on that night too. This will be the first time that there's been wrestling shows going head to head on a Monday since WCW died.

How is TNA doing? I haven't paid attention to it at all.

They've been pretty stagnant. They aren't really gaining an audience and they aren't losing it. They consistently get 1.1 ratings.

The product is not for everyone. They really don't push new people for a long period of time. They try too hard at the "sports entertainment" part of the product and don't really have that much wrestling matches on their shows.

I enjoy the product just because it's something different from WWE and I enjoy seeing some guys wrestle that I would never see in WWE.

Bret Hart's actually coming back to WWE. He signed a contract that extends through Wrestlemania. I can't see him wrestling in a match though.

I heard he might have hosted Raw...but I guess he'll be involved in some storyline, I guess?

If he's signed for a few months, he's definitely going to be involved with some storyline. Judging from Monday, that storyline is going to include Vince McMahon.

Dennis Miller made a comment to Vince McMahon about wanting Bret Hart to host Raw. Vince just walked off. I just figure that it's the start of something where Bret Hart comes back to get back at Vince.

WWE is stacking Monday's show to kill TNA. Bret Hart's returning on Monday plus there's DX vs. Jerishow. Monday's going to feel like it did when it was Raw vs. Nitro.

Yeah, I was thinking the same exact thing. I could really care less about TNA but it's making Raw stack it's show like you just said.

Raw was absolutely awesome back then when Nitro and them were going head to head. It's never really been the same after that.

They gotta get rid of the guest hosts. I didnt think they could do any worse than Dennis Miller who still thinks they call it the WWF but then they roll out a stoned, fat Timbaland.

Yeah, some of have been terrible. But it's going to happen all the way up to Wrestlemania.

There's been a bad streak of guest hosts recently. Johnny Damon, Dennis Miller, and Timbaland were all terrible. However, there has been no worse than Mini Me. He looks sick and looked so nervous when saying his lines.
