It's been a while since I've made a dumb comics/wrestling comparison post, so here it goes:

Back in the 80's, the Justice League sucked so much that big names like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern left. Then shortly after, B-listers like Aquaman, Zatanna and Elongated Man peaced out. The whole team was a sad shadow of its former self.

So that's what TNA makes me think of now. Martian Manhunter and four lame no-names sulking in a Detroit warehouse.

Ah, Broken Matt and Brother Nero being the Blue Beetle and Booster Gold of the TNA JLI.

DIRECTIVE 236: Promote pro-social values


TNA is just so completely ice cold and dead as a company, they have absolutely no momentum whatsoever. I feel like it would be easier to just start a new wrestling show with a new name and generate some interest that way rather than somehow kickstarting this dead company back up.

I actually dont think that TNA is stupid on this one. They are worthless and they are trying to keep the cost down so maybe in the future make some money of this trashcan of a company.

A wrestling company needs wrestlers. Their roster is already tiny and the Hardys were the most over people there. And they're not going to attract new talent with the kind of deals they're talking about.

Martian Manhunter is Bobby Lashley. Powerful bald guy who's kind of a big name, but will never really be an A-lister.
I need the JL/JLU video where its a supercut of Martian Manhunter doing his powers and immediately getting electrocuted and screaming since his power is about as OP as The Flash

Per appearance. Deals expired in 2016, they stuck around for the Jan/Feb episode tapings. Company hoped they could get them long-term, now they're not getting them period.

5 departures this week alone. Still only Tuesday.

I'd think Bennett and Maria going there is unlikely considering the whole Maria-WWE thing. She's pretty bitter about her time there.

When the Corgan left Maria tweeted she was working on leaving Wrestling. Mike flirted with joining ROH and posed with his old Kingdom faction at an indie show.

That was shortly after the Corgan lawsuit decision where she said she was leaving wrestling sooner than later, so I don't know why anyone would have taken that to mean "WWE-bound"

I didn't, I took her to mean she really was gonna retire soon. I dunno if Mike is ready to hang it up, though.
