    Good for him, he is a great asset even though his back prevents him from wrestling. He could still be a commentator, manager or do backstage stuff.

    On the other hand, I think TNA is getting filled with too many WWE stars. Anybody else feel weird about that?

    Yeah i agree TNA is definitely getting filled with too many ex-WWE stars. It's WCW all over again. Like when WCW kept ex-WWF stars like Hogan, Nash and Savage consantly at the top while never pushing younger stars like Benoit, Guerrero, Mysterio or Jericho. TNA is doing exactly the same thing.

    I don't really see JBL as a great signing either.

    I'm pretty sure that's their number one business policy.

    JBL could be a nice pickup for TNA if he's not wrestling. He'd be the perfect heel manager for someone.

    Although they did just do that with Taz so maybe its a moot point.

    I'm sick of the misconception that TNA is signing "too many former WWE stars." Aren't pro wrestlers free agents to begin with? Many spent just as much time in WCW, ECW, Japan, etc. Just b/c someone spent time in the WWE (or became popular there) doesn't mean that it's the only company in which these guys have competed.

    I do hear what you're saying but they need to be careful on who they sign and who they push before the guys who put them on the map to begin with.

    WCW/WWE retreds like Steiner and Nash are good for their names but other then that not much. They arent what people want to see. People who do watch TNA watch it as an alternative to the WWE and if they see guys that WWE casted aside then it just feels like the minor leagues and they dont want that.

    The PPV buys for their last PPV were apparently at an all-time low. I think a problem is the booking because there is a lot of talent on the TNA roster. Its hard to pinpoint what they need to do in order to do better in the ratings, buys, etc. But I think it starts at the top with the writing and the booking.

    Looks like those reports of JBL going to TNA are false:

    TNA are just taking all the past WWE wrestlers lol, like Millz mentioned it's like WCW all over again.

    I think JBL would be a nice addition to TNA, but like Wooly mentioned the rumors are probably false. It wouldn't make sense for him to go to TNA in my opinion.
