Twitter, Kurt Angle claimed that WWE lifted some of their concepts from TNA including the AJ Styles/Dixie Carter affair storyline as well as Eric Bischoff's multi-camera angle. Here is what Kurt had to say:
"WWE production team using @EBischoff's innovative multi-camera backstage filming technique with OneManBand segment?
Staged "affair" between AJ Lee & @JohnCena, w/date pic & hotel video? WWE outright lifting TNA concepts?"

Talon's Take: There are definitely similarities between the Cena/AJ and AJ/Dixie/Lynch storyline, including having two heroic characters in Cena and AJ being accused of having an affair plus having the pic and hotel video. Kurt is definitely right about that. I haven't seen the 3MB segment so I couldn't determine if that has been lifted.
I wouldn't call it lifting as much as inspiration. If WWE watched TNA programming and liked what TNA did and then did it their own way; that is inspiration. If everything TNA did was directly copied to WWE; that is lifting. WWE needs all the inspiration they can get. Have you seen their programming lately?
