Taimapedia gave me complete history on TNA's fuck ups, which they got a lot, one of them was THIS:

Paul Heyman was in talks with TNA to join the company -- but he reportedly wanted both full control of several parts of the company (including Creative) and the immediate firing of all but one of the veterans ("If you're over 40, I'll rip your fucking head off") so he could build a younger roster to carry the company forward. Both Spike TV and TNA management reportedly had no issues with the deal, but Dixie Carter refused out of loyalty to these veterans as well as other people Heyman would likely fire (e.g. Vince Russo). The deal eventually fell apart.
  • Heyman later let it slip that he would've tried to steal Daniel Bryan away from WWE right after "Tiegate" happened and build him up as an unstoppable submission machine for an eventual match with Kurt Angle.
Fuck! Think about it for a minute, if Dixie wasn't McMahon 2.0 and actually decided to bring in Heyman and go through with his plan, how would that affect TNA? In my opinion that would really put TNA on the map, Heyman would make a shit ton of new rising stars and make the promotional totally original. Also if this happened in 2010 think how much WWE would be affected by this, Paul could've took Bryan after he was fired for the tie incident, made him a mega star, he would've kept Kurt and made a dream rivalry. This would've made a second wrestling war for number one show. Instead Dixie refused because "they are well respected veterans" (and fame whores) and TNA is a sinking ship while Paul just laughs at her.

Heyman and Bryan on TNA... Stop, my dick can only get so erect.

But if that happened and we never got the YESMovement... :ambrose:

Although TNA did have a good run there in 12-13, yes, this probably would've avoided they fell into the hole they're into and would avoid russo-rific '14 also.
