First off, I thought the NWA-TNA PPV was a damn good show, from top to bottom. Fer sure the best show on TV this week (so far)...
With my opinion of the show in check, I surfed over to 1wrestling.com...
Buck Woodward says:
"I have heard from several sources that the finish in the NWA World Title match between Ken Shamrock and Takao Omori tonight on NWA: Total Nonstop Action was changed at the last minute. Apparently NWA:TNA and Pro Wrestling Noah could not come to an agreement on a finish to the match, which originally was supposed to see Shamrock go over. NWA:TNA wanted a clean finish to the match, but when they could not come to an agreement with Noah, they went with the Jeff Jarrett run-in and a no contest ending "
Did we really need to know that? I thought the ending was great, both guys came out looking good, Double J drew a TON of heat and good ol' Harley took that chair shot like a man.

The whole point of 1wrestling, or most of these sites, is to give the insider scoop. If you don't want to know that, then don't click on that article. If its blatantly posted on the main page, then find a different website.

Whenever's the a hyped match that ends up with no winner (hey, like something on Tuesday...what was that?) there's gonna be some cheesed off people and the NWA-TNA is trying to appease those people - it wasn't their fault!

Hey, they just had to get their contractually-agreed upon number of NWA TNA posts in for the week. Remember, Ryder's on the NWA TNA payroll now, and any fleeting illusion of even-handedness is out the window!
Personally, I think that 1Wrestling has gotten even worse now that Ryder is back in full-tilt "shill for the WWE's competition" mode again. I guess he forgot about that open letter he wrote after WCW went floating belly-up at the top of the TV set. Anyone remember that letter? He basically groveled at the feet and licked at the buttocks of Keller and Meltzer and apologized for ever dissing them. It was a towering beacon of meek.
Off the given topic, but another thing that bugs me about 1Wrestling is that Dave Scherer, whom I generally tend to like, gets all arrogant about them not running gag headlines on April 1st, but then he lets Woodward go nuts with cutesy trick headlines like the recent "Observer predicts the end of the World" story, of last year's "WWF hires Meltzer" headline. That's just petty and hypocritical.
