I had to think really long and hard about this - but one good thing has happened on TNA since Hogan came aboard.

Abyss's gimmick got fixed.

Remember he was doing that quasi-Eugene face thing? I didn't like when he was doing the Hogan schtick, but now? He's properly a monster like he should be.

I am also at the point where I can't even watch TNA anymore, but I have to admit that one thing is better...

I thought the happy superhero Abyss occurred because of direct interaction with Hogan. He got Hogan's HoF ring and found his, I dunno, resolve and confidence. This was part of Hogan "fixing" TNA characters.

Yeah, when he went from Eugene-lite to the Hulkamania-Lantern, I think it was a positive step, but it still wasn't ideal.

Did they eventually intend to revert him to full-blown monster, and that was just a halfway step? I have no way of knowing. But the end result - what we have now - is an acceptable version. So yeah, a year into it, Abyss is far, far better than he was when Hogan first arrived.

I find the current Evil Monster Abyss to be remarkably one-dimensional and boring. Maybe it's because he isn't good on the mic, but most likely it's because they aren't giving him anything really interesting to do.

So he's a pure BREAD champion, AND is on the Atkin's diet? I guess now the Undertaker is back, Kamala must return to have a casket re-match. Next we'll see Spike Dudley changing his name to Yokozuna to finally kill the Deadman off for a 2nd...3rd...4th?...
