Weather it is Total Nonstop Action or World Wrestling Entertainment or any other promotion for that manner, it's all the same, it is all wrestling, and once people start to get that through their heads, this will become a more respective sport outside of the wrestling industry.
People bash promotion's but then there are people who bash wrestlers. We all do it at some point, I say on a daily basis that I do not like John Morrison and Rey Mysterio and believe they are two of the most overrated wrestlers that I have ever seen in my lifetime as a fan, but we all do it. Hell, we even call our wrestlers, overrated, and sometimes, a lot of fans judge wrestlers by their characters. Ican remember someone asking a question a few months back, do you believe Randy Orton should end his life. So, wresters and wrestling in itself needs to be respected by it's fans.
Wrestling is the one sport I know that gets bashed so much, and I mean, the only sport by outside fans. But everyone asks, which is better, TNA or WWE. How about which is better, wrestling or wrestling, it's all the same, and as I said, people do not get that.
You don't see any NFL fans calling someone overrated or picking out certain players, and hating them. They respect the sport and that is the reason why it is so respected by outside fans. Becuase it isn't bashed by actual fans. The same thing goes for any sport other than wrestling.
So, once people realize, all wrestling is, is wrestling, and not just a russian roulette game, our sport will be respected by outside fans. As of now, we get treated like a second rate fake sport.
