I didn't download the clip but I'm guessing it's when Nash did his powerbomb at the ppv and fell down. It was pretty funny, the commentators tried to cover it up by making excuses. "Nash fell down because he's still dizzy from getting hit by the belt" "yeah..and he's bleeding! he lost blood! so it's hard to stand! yeah! That's it!"
X-Pac was on between the ropes this week and he had suffered a concussion, maybe it was just the concussion talking but he also sounded completely wasted. X-Pac, who doesn't seem very bright to begin with, with a concussion and drunk still had enough common sense to know that turning Monty Brown heel was stupid. But apparently the people booking is not as smart as a concussed/drunk X-Pac.

I haven't watched TNA in awhile, and I always seem to miss Impact when it's on. AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels will be working for me this summer on a few shows so I really wanted to see them work again, as I'm a huge AJ mark. I didn't catch the live event, but I saw a promo video on the TNA site about the replays so I figured, what the hell - I'll get it and see what all the hype was about. I can say this..... this was the absolute WORST wrestling show I've ever purchased. This could have won them a new fan, but they sure as hell lost me, cuz I'll never shell out another dime on their product again. I can't believe some of the crap I had to sit through. The X-Division match was off the hook, but the rest of the show was nothing more than a huge pile of steaming suck.
What bothers me, is they have a golden opportunity to showcase new, young talent from all over the country, and they feel it necessary to throw at us guys like the Harris Brothers and whoever the fat, out of shape, non workers they were in there with. The fans were pretty much sitting on their hands the entire night and with good reason. The only thing worse than the booking was the actual matches and guys that were in them. Not to mention their backstage segments make me welcome kidney stones.
I was really excited about getting this show and called a few friends to come by and watch it. I was really embarrassed by it, and quite disgusted that they are wasting this promotion away. It's almost criminal.

Tell me about it...
We can all fantasy- and armchair book, but you'd think that common sense for even the slowest of people would tell you that certain matches and wrestlers aren't marketable or interesting.
Cases in point:
-Harris Bros (as mentioned) -Trytan -AMW not being used more effectively - they've proven they're huge for the company when pushed in a big way. -the decimation of the tag team division which was one of wrestling's best in recent years, about a year ago. -too much Dusty/divas soap opera crap -senseless and pointless programs between Jeff Hardy-Abyss and Jeff Hardy-Raven. -Raven primarily wrestling every now and then, but hardly ever getting involved in storylines... his wrestling is lacking nowadays, but he can be used better in place of Dusty/divas for soap opera storylines.
