Let's go back in time to a post I made 3 weeks ago...

With Russo and Konnan both on board, Juvy's return is an inevitability. It's all a matter of when.

Well, Da Juicy One is BACK! Konnan debuted him tonight and, yes, Juvy stole the show tonight against Jerry Lynn.

Now let's start counting down to La Parka's debut!

They're bringing in a lot of people I'd like to see lately. I'm starting to think about ordering one; Sandman and Dusty aren't really doing much to tip the scales in favor of ordering though.

Yes but you forgot to mention the most electrifying return of all: ERIC F'N WATTS!!!! That Russo is a genius. I'm sure buyrates are going to skyrocket.

Okay, tonight really was a truly schizoid episode, with the good, the bad, the amusingly ugly, and the just plain fugly of TNA.

Good:
-AMW deserve large butter sculptures made of them for their all encompassing goodness. If the RSPW awards were a quarterly thing they would easily get my first place vote for Tag Team of the Year.

-Da Jooce came back and had a fun match with Jerry Lynn that made me happy. I agree wholeheartedly that this angle is begging and pleading for La Parka. Wouldn't mind Super Crazy either.

-X Division continues its reprieve from the SEX/TNA feud with Kid Kash trying to relegitimize the belt. I'd like to see him get a series of good wins in solid matches over not quite top contenders for a couple months. Feed him 8 more weeks of Julio Dinero and the SAT's and Ace Steele and those sorts of guys, before *dream scenario on* building up to a huge match with Amazing Red. Oh, and while I love her and think she's just the cutest hottest thing on two legs, Trinity needs some lessons in how to pump the crowd up during the match. But that's a minor quibble when it comes to the future Mrs. SPF.

-The Disciples have done a hell of a job turning face, which I would not have guessed as happening ever. Maybe it is just the sheer fun of chanting "Let's Go Evil!" causing it, but either way, they are adding a solid face team other than AMW.

-I may be alone in this, but I enjoy the AJ Styles/Raven interactions. The insane intellectual vs. the raging redneck with a Napoleonic Complex is a hoot for me. Digging out the old "call the kilt a skirt" line was good for nostalgia points too. Also worthy of a mention was Sonny Siaki and his whole "Ace In The Whole" routine, especially his disgust at Raven not washing his hands.

Bad:
-It was cool to see Vader back and all that, but him and Dusty Rhodes looked like if they were BBQ'ed that all famine in Africa could be cured forever. Didn't help that they had the Harris brothers working with them.

-Raven vs. Dinero and Styles vs. Sandman were not really bad so much as just sort of eh. The clash of forms was just too much for either match to overcome very well.

-Vince Russo's kids need acting lessons. And in general just a bit too much chatter, though not as bad as last week.

-No one needed to see old Dustin Rhodes jackets. They're like the old White Sox jerseys that had shorts instead of baseball pants...not that bad in theory, but awful in practice.

Amusingly Ugly:
-Vince Russo shooting on his own children was worth the price of the PPV all by itself. Best hatred towards one's offspring since the night Eddy snapped about his kid having a Scorpion King poster and telling the little brat to "SHUT UP!!!"

-Ron Killings in the stands evoking the whole Sting in the rafters image just made me wonder if the statute of limitations on angle theft had been moved from the Cornette standard of 7 years.

Fugly:
-The last scene of the show was like the Invasion of the Worthless Offspring. I wholly expect David Sammartino to be a part of the angle, and to have Greg Gagne come in as a mouthpiece. I am sure though I heard the sound of 1000 people simultaneously saying "Who the hell is that loser?" when Erik Watts ran into the ring. I'm just trying to pretend that end angle never happened.

-Seeing Brian Lawler and Simon Diamond, both of whom I have an irrational hatred of, on my tv in the same night. If they could somehow get Bradshaw involved, I'd swear off wrestling forever and do something more enjoyable like pulling my own teeth out of my head.

Overall despite the Fugly stuff they really did give me more enjoyment overall than No Way Out did. The shows aren't perfect, but they rarely put on a show where I don't enjoy at least 50% of it. Once again, all I can say is to anyone who could afford to buy 2 weeks of the show, give it a chance. Give yourself 2 weeks just in case you hit one of the Russo brainfart shows, as usually next week is much better.

Yes! Juvi rules! His Juvi-driver is one of my favorite moves.

On the Killings statute of limitations: Since the Sting in the rafters angle began in late '96, technically it could be claimed that 7 calendar years (inclusive) have occurred since the angle began, thus allowing it to fall into the Jim Cornette 7 year window.

Juvi appears to have finally realized not to act like an unprofessional POS. Hooray for him.

Also, with Juvi in, most of the Armstrongs won't be back any time soon.
