I have no interest at all in this PPV and there are only two matches announced, so I thought it might be fun to predict Thursday's "Whole F'n Show" - "featuring only matches originally slated for pay-per-view" -- while we're here.
Rob Van Dam vs. Jerry Lynn I'm not even sure if this is for the title or not, but either way, RVD wins.
Tommy Dreamer vs. Raven Dreamer, I guess, 'cuz it's "his" show. Foley's the Special Ref here.
Also appearing: » Team 3D » Rhino » Stevie Richards » Simon Diamond » Al Snow » Axl Rotten » Johnny Swinger » Sabu » 2 Cold Scorpio » Brother Runt » CW Anderson » The FBI » The Sandman
No one there I'm anxious to ever see in the ring again.
THE WHOLE F'n SHOW
ROB VAN DAM vs. ABYSS (TNA WORLD TITLE MATCH) Stairway to Janice match, Eric Bischoff is special ref. I guess this depends on whether Bischoff is face or heel this week. I'll say Abyss wins, leading to Abyss vs. Hulk "I've stepped back" Hogan at BfG.
OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST KURT ANGLE vs. “THE PHENOMENAL” AJ STYLES Angle has to win to keep the story going. It wouldn't surprise me to see him fall short of his goal, actually, but I don't think it'll happen here. (I'm just glad they're not running this Angle with Jeff Jarrett, which is where his "start at the bottom" storyline seemed to be heading.)
ANGELINA LOVE vs. MADISON RAYNE (TNA KNOCKOUTS TITLE MATCH) Rayne gets screwed over by Velvet Sky and/or the Biker; Love wins.
“THE CHARISMATIC ENGIMA”(sic) JEFF HARDY’S OPEN CHALLENGE I assume this was supposed to be against Samoa Joe before he got sent home. His challenge is open to "anyone in the wrestling world" -- I'll predict Jerry Lynn, and that Hardy wins.
“THE POPE” D’ANGELO DINERO vs. “THE BLUEPRINT” MATT MORGAN vs. MR. ANDERSON Tough call between Pope and Anderson. I'll say Anderson gets distracted by Murphy and Gunnar, and Pope pins Morgan.
BEER MONEY vs. MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS (TNA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLES MATCH) This is reportedly two out of three falls and should be a MotY contender. Guns retain.

Rob Van Dam vs. Jerry Lynn How long has it been since Lynn's even wrestled? This can't end well. Yeah, that'll happen when a guy hasn't wrestled in ages. RVD wins against...oh, let's say Brian Kendrick. Who cares, really?
Tommy Dreamer vs. Raven Raven wins when Foley turns on Dreamer for no discernible reason..
THE WHOLE F'n SHOW
ROB VAN DAM vs. ABYSS (TNA WORLD TITLE MATCH) Stairway to Janice match, Eric Bischoff is special ref. I'm going with RVD to retain, only because I don't believe they'd put Hogan in a PPV main event. They're dumb, but even TNA can't be that stupid.
OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST KURT ANGLE vs. “THE PHENOMENAL” AJ STYLES Angle wins in fluke fashion.
ANGELINA LOVE vs. MADISON RAYNE (TNA KNOCKOUTS TITLE MATCH) Heel interference backfires. Angelina wins.
“THE CHARISMATIC ENGIMA”(sic) JEFF HARDY’S OPEN CHALLENGE I feel like I've asked this before, but doesn't TNA employ copy editors? Hell, don't they have freakin' SPELL CHECK? Hardy wins against...oh, I dunno...let's say Brian Kendrick. Who cares, really?
“THE POPE” D’ANGELO DINERO vs. “THE BLUEPRINT” MATT MORGAN vs. MR. ANDERSON Morgan wins via security shenanigans. Pope and Anderson go at it after the match.
BEER MONEY vs. MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS (TNA WORLD TAG TEAM TITLES MATCH) Beer Money win 2 out of 3 and take the third with the Greco-Roman Beer Bottle Blast.
I will admit that this card ALMOST makes me want to go to my local Uno Chicago Grill that buys PPVs and puts them on their near 100" diagonal big screen and watch it through their front window that they never close the blinds on so I can avoid the cover.
The last PPV I actually spent money on was Final Resolution 2006 (I think).

The ECW guys getting their own PPV was a nice con job, and I'm sure it thrills the rest of the TNA regulars. It's hard to blame the ECW crew for scoring another big check, I'm sure they can use it. I just don't think they can go anymore, at least not on their own. Foley being on the card and not as guest referee might help.
I don't think anyone would have had a problem if the ECW guys came in as a faction, not invaders but just a crew. We could all get semi hard to see them face Nash, Sting or some other mainstreamer from back in the day.
This card is really loaded with some low level ECW guys.
RVD and Raven win, there's a catfight, Sabu hurts himself.

Powell is calling Justin Credible one of the better workers? Maybe one of the younger less broken down, but he's not even active right now is he?
We are getting it and its mainly due that even though there is football on, its two teams, the wife and I hate as well as maybe a down of actual starters playing. RVD vs. Sabu should be good and Sabu actually has a history with TNA. I am more into it for the car crash factor and the simple fact there is nothing else to do tonight.
After last night’s absolutely horrendous crock of a main event, it is clear WCW needs a completely fresh direction. And tonight, we’re going to start taking babysteps in a better direction. Let’s turn things over to ...
