The Art Of War
I wish I had a dime for every time the words “ Monday Night War” is being thrown around these days. For a new a new war a lot of the old tactics are still being employed, and lets face it , unless something radical happens soon, the result will be the same as well. The WWE ‘strategy is ignore it it will sooner or later go away and TNA ‘s strategy is put our existence in the hands of people who have already failed once and will more then likely fail again. The definition of insanity has always been doing the same thing over again hoping for different results . I have a different idea and I want to bounce it off of Cyber space before TNA goes by the way of the WCW model.
First and for most , why do you have to go up against the WWE on Monday night , even in the Heyday of the first Monday Night War , WCW couldn’t hold onto what they had. If you really look at the whole situation , the WWE is a whole lot weaker on Friday night then they ever where on Monday. My TV Network doesn’t even qualify as a network any more and since Jeff Hardy went By By, Smack Down has become the B show . And then they do this Jack Swagger thing this past Friday that did nothing to elevate the show at all.
Look , Smack Down had a run where it was the much better show for most of 2009 but as that was going on , the network it self was failing to the point that it isn’t even considered a actual TV Network. This accelerated the talk of Vince having his own cable Network but let us not forget , MY TV is owned by FOX, and Fox doesn’t give up anything with out a fight . So what I’m saying to TNA is , WWE is weakest point right now is Friday night . They tape the show on Tuesday night show you will have results out on the net no later then Tuesday midnight . Gives you 2 and a half days to punch things up if need be or maybe get some ideas on how to counter program against the WWE
