TNA producer Eric Bischoff was on Monday Night Mayhem this past week to discuss a host of topics including the future of the Knockouts division. He says:
We got hit with a rash of injuries a few weeks ago, along with some contractual issues. But I think what you are going to see is the Knockout division getting back on track in very short order. Everyone in TNA is proud of the Knockouts division, and I look at the division and look at anything else that has been done before, I think the Knockout division is consistently one of the better women’s divisions that I’ve ever seen in any promotion. I think there is a lot of commitment to it, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
I’m not sure that Eric has been watching some of same product that we have been watching. The number of great TV matches has dwindled this year and I can only think of two off the top of my head. Last year, we were getting some pretty good, memorable and fresh matches on a consistent basis on Impact; Hamada vs Daffney, Alissa vs Tara etc. Now? Not so much.
