Impact Wrestling Musings
– I thoroughly enjoy the new set. It’s looks modern and not cartoony like the old set.
– I wouldn’t mind if the opening promo was about a new era in TNA, all about wrestling. But it’s about Bischoff wanting to get Mick Foley out of power. And eliminate the real wrestlers, the heart of TNA, the X Division.
– Hmm, not one TNA logo anywhere in the Impact Zone. Curious…
– Kendrick and Bischoff going back and forth on the mic, with obvious crowd noise piped in for Kendrick.
– Well this beatdown was unnecessarily long.
– I have since eaten dinner, thus missing the 6 Knockout Tag match and Ahbyss winning the X Division title. Way to showcase your X-Division, guys!
– Joe v Red is next. Worst part of this squash was Joe selling the only punch Red threw. The boy sure is a great bump machine, though.
– Crimson makes the save for Red and Joe runs off. Remember when Samoa Joe was regarded at the best wrestler in the world? What happened to that guy?
– AJ in the ring to talk in a neck brace. Dreamer comes out in a suit (wait, what?) to talk some more. Not a fan of heel Dreamer, it’s not believable. I did like what Dreamer said after he attacked AJ. A good old fashioned promo about how the fans just want too much and don’t care about the wrestler.
– I’m so impressed with the transformation of Bully Ray. I complain about TNA a lot, but if they put Bully Ray into the main event scene, I couldn’t say a bad thing.
– Asking the fans what wrestling means to them is a cool little thing. But when you ask this bald and he’s putting over wrestling so hard, he’s shaking his head no the entire time. Coincidence?
– Kurt Angle challenges Jeff Jarrett…again. What’s this, like eight months now?
– Far too much profanity from Kurt, it’s not real coming from him.
– What’s with Angle’s awkward psycho grin that he somehow maintains for this entire segment?
– Karen Jarrett in a wheelchair rises up through the stage, which was pretty sweet.
– Two very long non-wrestling segments back to back. No wrestling for 20 mins. Yep.
– I can’t decide if I like the fact that in every backstage segment, the wrestlers are being spyed on.
– Generation Me v Matt Hardy/Eric Bishcoff. GenMe double teamed Hardy for far more than five seconds. That’s just poor rule enforcing.
– Pretty good match; hate to use the comparison because it’s been done to death, but GenMe are exactly like the Hardyz when the first debuted.
– Angelina Love reminds me of a cross between a sex doll and CC Deville.
– Any reason why Eric Young carries around the old TNA World Title?
– Oh hey look, Flair and Roode in the ring, and they’re…talking.
– Oh hey look, another beatdown that lasts too long.
What a shitty show.
