So for those keeping track, the belt that was the Legends title, the Global title, the TV title, and the KOTM title has finally been retired and replaced with the Grand title. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TNA_K...in_Championship Been a hell of a ride, g*dspeed

There was a lot of merging/splitting/new belt introduction/company name changes over several decades so I don't know if that counts quite as much as TNA's "we're gonna do a whole new thing every other week" title.

Yeah, at least the KOTM title was openly acknowledged on-air and in an official Youtube video as "remember the Legends/Global/TV titles? They were all the same physical belt, and it's this now"

Outside of the first match for it, was the King of the Mountain title ever actually defended in a King of the Mountain match?

Does TNA genuinely get bored/ADHD about their own concepts way faster than Vince? Or is it more that too many people are deciding which direction to go?

Having Lashley win all the belts seems especially pointless when they just vacated the X Division title and had someone else win it immediately and then replaced the other one.

Also, for people keeping count, that's 3 title changes so far

Seriously why the gently caress did they do that angle? All they did is bury the gently caress out of their roster, THEN their belts, for literally no reason.

lmfao at all of this. Devaluing all of the singles titles by declaring them dead, the Hardys just finished a 3 month feud and are now tagging together again for no reason, an ex-WWE guy calling an ex-WWE guy an intruder and a turning heel because of it, and a loving fingerpoke of doom to top it all off.

TNA. Cross the Line!

Matt broke Jeff, that is why they are tagging.

The truly stupid thing is that Matt isn't in the main event right now because he's drawing a lot of attention.

Also they're doing a 'judges score the matches' storyline and the judges are according tot his '3 unknown people'

I know TNA is light on legends and all, but you can't even try to get people over in this scenario by having the judges be someone that anyone gives a poo poo about? That seems like about the easiest thing possible to make it seem like a big deal instead of another stupid terrible idea
