TNA Reaction - Interesting concept, great content

Total Nonstop Action wrestling was formed in 2002, by wrestler Jeff Jarrett and Jerry Jarrett, his father and famed wrestling promoter. Fast forward eight years: Jerry Jarrett is no longer with the company and Jeff is now a minority owner. The company is run by Dixie Carter, who came on board a few years ago.

A lot of changes have been made to TNA since then, some positive and some negative. One of the most positive changes to be made to TNA is the introduction of a new series, called "Reaction." It's only a few weeks old, but if it catches on, this has the potential to revolutionize how professional wrestling is presented.

"Reaction" is a reality-based wrestling program. The first 8 minutes of the most recent show is embedded above. The concept is that they follow the wrestlers around after the show ends, getting their reaction to what just happened. The "show" is over, and the "reality" begins. For the most part, the wrestlers are still in character. It's a unique addition to TNA's main show, "iMPACT."

"Reaction" airs every Thursday at 11 p.m. on SpikeTV, immediately following "iMPACT," which airs 9-11 p.m.


  1. Reaction is OK, but the main show product is so bad and muddled now that I almost don't care.

  2. Yeah, the main problem is the TNA product as a whole. If the actual program got better & easier to follow, Reaction would be a lot better.

    As a concept, it's a cool idea. It's just going to be hard to make sense of some of their muddles booking at times.
