This may be old news(I'm sure it is) but, I had to rub my eyes when I saw Dustin Rhodes on the 12/17 Impact.
I knew it had to happen..but, why? Not that I have anything against the guy, oh, he's most defintely paid his dues...but, is there any reason he needs to challenge Jarrett for the NWA/TNA title? (cough...Dusty...cough)
Ok, but is there any reason I need to watch Dustin squash Swinger on the same show I see Johnny Badd team up with a former Elvis(Siaki) on the same show I see Hardy squash Roode(spelled with an E now) on the same show Hall and Nash break up a pretty good Jarrett/Garza match on the same show I saw Eric Watts. DID I HEAR DON WEST SAY THIS WAS A PAY PER VIEW QUALITY SHOW. (I woulda been pissed)
Where the hell was Sabin,Petey,Aj,Monty..etc
Hey, I think TNA has some unbelievable talent...why not use it more.
PS..does anybody else remember Roode and Eric Young jobbing matches on Velocity earlier this year?
Any NWA/TNA oppinion apreciated..as I really enjoy watching the shows. I'm just confused sometimes. Also, doesn't Hall look like a cuban drug lord or something. They should put a hawaiian shirt on him and call him Tommy Vercetti (or not).
PS..I have mad respect for the legends, by the way, they just confuse me.
They were in kind of a bad position because Macho walked out before the show, and since they tape two episodes of Impact at once, they had to write out an integral storyline (Jarrett vs Savage at Final Resolution) for TWO shows.
In addition, they simply don't have storylines for a lot of the guys. Which is utterly ridiculous.
Some of those guys who were "missing" were on the week before...I know Garza wrestled twice, but not everyone should (in my opinion). They could have actually built interest by having Garza face Jarrett at the upcoming tapings, with the second week show being used to build interest.
BigDaddyLoco: You are right about this version of Austin being better in a lot of ways than the Austin we all know and love. He was just a pissed off dude, not a guy playing a pissed off dude and Funk was money in the old man rambling drunk mode.
