** His reasoning is that a match with a gimmick will always be inherently better than a match without a gimmick. True, that doesn't entirely answer why ''poles'' have to the gimmick in question, but it's a start.
* The whole Mexican America thing. Sure, it's tasteless, but the people they chose for it is missing the mark. The concept is simple; A bunch of pure-bloods Mexicans ([[CaptainObvious from Mexico]]), but none of them are from there. Anarquia is Mexican, to be fair, but from L.A., Rosita is Puerto Rican and from New York and Hernandez is partially Mexican, but also Puerto Rican and from Texas. And Sarita isn't even Hispanic at all, and is from Canada! It'd be like making a stable of children of pure-blood Nazis that came from Argentina, with a German guy from Wisconsin, a Austrian girl from Minnesota, a half-German half-Polish guy from Illinos and a girl from South Korea that looks kind of white.

** Because that would be too much focus for a knockout, who were Dutch Mantel's pet project? Okay, that's not a good in-story reason but that's consistent with the booking.

Really, let's go with Kazarian not looking back at that particularly episode and none of his buddies telling him since he doesn't need the added grief?

* The booking, well, in general, but for the woman's matches in particular, why can't they allow these '''wrestlers''' the opportunity to strut their stuff? But no, we need Sarita in a thong and the Beautiful People.

*** Sarita's ring attire barely qualifies as a thong. Madison Rayne is the Knockout Champion, a bitchy ScreamingWarrior. Tara is a BadassBiker with an {{Animal Motif|s}}. Taylor Wilde was a [[IHaveTheHighGround High Ground]] GenkiGirl. Mickie James is a PintSizedPowerhouse UnkemptBeauty with a hidden keg of UnstoppableRage. Yet all have wrestled in revealing outfits comparable to the Beautiful People, even complete with [[PantyShot upskirt value]] in some cases, including one of Madison's regular outfits. ''This is all while consistently telling stories and putting on matches good enough to put the vast majority of the current-era WWE Divas product to shame''. So it's not like any of the Knockouts, namely Sarita, who has worn the same revealing level of attire in different promotions before (just check a Sarah Stock Wrestling/{{SHIMMER}} photoshoot or two), are suddenly being told by creative that they're only good for booty-shaking.

* So, Traci Brooks just slept with Bischoff to get a job, okay...but isn't Traci Brooks married to Kazarian in story as well as in real life? So why hasn't Kazarian or any other Fortune member (Fortune of course being the archrivals to Immortal) made a big deal about Eric Bischoff fucking one of their wives?

**** If that were the case then they would've changed Chris Sabin's name too.

** Considering that Joe left the company shortly after the angle started, probably not.

* What's the point of having a TNA Hall of Fame? I mean, I know it's supposed to honor those who made major contributions to the history of TNA, but almost all of the inductees made their fame ''before'' coming to TNA and didn't add much besides credibility and star power. In fact, none of the stuff they accomplished in TNA is well-known outside of the core fan base - it's not like they were instrumental in causing some altering decisions that put the company towards a new direction besides opening a floodgate of old-timers into the promotion. The sole exception is perhaps Jeff Jarrett, and that's because he's the ''founder'' of the promotion. The rest (Team 3D, Kurt Angle, Sting) are still more known for stuff outside of TNA. Hell, even Earl Hebner is more known for the Montreal Screwjob than anything else.

* Will they ever explain why Joe & Low-Ki decided to join M.V.P.'s entourage?

* How would Wrestling/BobbyRoode not know what it means to be the metaphorical 'bigger man'? I doubt he was referring to the metaphor when he argued with Wrestling/AustinAries about whom it was - unless Aries was being condescending when he explained it?
