* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The ''TNA iMPACT!'' console game by Creator/MidwayGames wasn't too bad, but it had it share of glaring flaws (the [[CharacterCustomization CAW mode]] was quite limited, half of the roster was locked from the start so you have to play through Story Mode just to unlock them.) But the ''TNA Wrestling iMPACT!'' mobile game by Creator/NamcoBandai was utterly horrible. The fighting was way too slow, all the wrestlers look freakishly thin (even big guys such as Abyss and Hernandez), the CAW mode was worse than the previous game, and it lacked variety in terms of match types. Worst of all, it was a PAID app.

* EveryYearTheyFizzleOut: Uou can drop an atom bomb on the Impact Zone while all the talent and management is there, and TNA will stay in business somehow.

* EveryYearTheyFizzleOut: Inverted to almost WhyWontYouDie levels. Never underestimate TNA's ability to stay in business despite all logical reasoning saying they shouldn't. They'll find a way to stay in the game somehow.

** The relationship between Wrestling/AJStyles and Wrestling/ChristopherDaniels was chock full of HoYay, even when they were enemies. When they were arguing over the possibility that Daniels could beat Styles, it seemed like a lover's spat that lasted for weeks. Samoa Joe acting like a jealous third party didn't help any. Keep in mind that Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles have named their kids after each other, so this is hardly a relationship that ends when the match does.
** This recently happened again with AJ and Daniels, over the same thing. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgQPgoGLSB4 On the 8/25/11 Impact broadcast]], Daniels nearly broke down into tears while explaining why he asked AJ for another rematch (closely resembling an AnguishedDeclarationOfLove) and outright hugged AJ when the rematch was accepted.

** Josh Mathews' embarrassing internet antics led to many fans calling for TNA to fire him. Instead, he was made a heel on television.



Furthermore, it seems that the company's working relationship with Wrestling/TheGreatMuta and his promotion WRESTLE-1 was initially put in jeopardy by the Russo return rumors ''and a lack of straight answers about it backstage'' at least, until "Big" John Gaburick [[note]]TNA's current Vice President of Creative and Talent Relations, long-established as running the show behind the scenes since Hogan's exodus[[/note]] admitted to Muta that yes, Russo was back, but assured him that Russo was only a consultant and wouldn't be doing to the WRESTLE-1 talent what he'd done to Yujiro and Naito of No Limit in 2009[[note]]along with every other Mexican or Japanese cruiserweight he'd ever written for creatively in either Wrestling/{{WCW}} or TNA[[/note]]. In addition to this, TNA may have soured the morale backstage even further[[note]]which was already struggling as a result of the money and talent hemorrhage caused by Hogan and Bischoff's taking-Impact-on-the-road idea grossly backfiring[[/note]], as they apparently ''lied to the very wrestlers whose livelihoods are at the discretion of both creative and the fans'' in order to keep the secret from leaking out.

* {{Tearjerker}}: After The Naturals defeated AMW to regain the NWA tag titles one of the last images was of them and their manager Wrestling/ChrisCandido clutching the belts with a [[SoProudOfYou smile on his face proud of their accomplishment]] despite being in severe pain due to an real life injury he suffered less than a week ago. A few days later he died due to a botched surgery.

** MEH TNA [[labelnote:Explanation]]When Anthem announced ownership, it was quickly noted that "Anthem" could spell "MEH TNA" backwards. Considering TNA's status as SnarkBait, the jokes were all but inevitable.[[/labelnote]]

** No Limit's entry into TNA was earned by defeating Unione, The World Class Tag Team and Apollo 55. The enthusiasm this generated died off quickly once they were in TNA and they left with significantly fewer people caring about them. As a team they'd regain heat by running with La Ola Amarilla in CMLL but Tetsuya Naito would not recover as an individual until he hooked up with Rush's Los Ingoberables and brought it back to New Japan. Yujiro Takahashi bounced back more quickly, but not among fans in the USA, who still greet him lukewarmly.

** Daffney, if you like goths, or corsets, or have a thing for straight jacket needing mental patients. No less than Taz has acknowledged the phenomenon, though he doesn't get it either
** [[Wrestling/LisaMarieVaron Tara]]. A ScreamingWarrior who wears leather catsuits and rides motorcycles? Yesplease.
