I have to get up early-ish tomorrow, so this will be short.

The new interviewer that I dislike asks Killings and Pacman about spray-painting "PAC" on Eric Young last week -- Pacman says it was charity -- usually he can get $5000 an autograph! Heh heh.

Kurt Angle is worried about his potential tag team partner (to be determined tonight). Karen says she'll take care of it.

3D vs. Motorcity Machine Guns -- wait, no -- Scott Steiner comes out and suplexes 3D all over the ring -- but they eventually overpower him. Ray holds a steel chair perpendicular to the supine Steiner's throat and Devon slams another chair into it -- yow. They powerbomb Scott through a table for good measure.

MMG still want a match and make an open challenge. VKM come out and after about a minute, Kip (still wearing Torrie Wilson's ring gear) casually cobra-clutch-slams Sabin and BG pins him -- while they pose. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU TNA

VKM make their own open challenge -- out comes LAX, XXX, and...Sharkboy and Eric Young? WTF. Why not switch MMG & Young & Sharky's place in this, if VKM needs to squash someone?

Karen's been going around offering to help each of the participants in the next match win -- in exchange for getting a title shot. I don't see how this plan benefits Kurt in any way.

AJ Styles vs. Christian Cage vs. Sting vs. Samoa Joe: Winner becomes 1/2 of the Tag Champs and teams with Angle against Team Pacman at No Surrender (September 9th on PPV!). Not a bad match -- around 20 minutes! Joe and Cage end up brawling to the back and Sting makes Styles tap out to the Scorpion Death Lock. Sting and Angle are the Tag Team champions! (I suspect this means Angle vs. Sting will Main Event Bound for Glory -- well, it could've been worse -- could've been Jeff Jarrett...)

After the match, Killings beats down Sting and Pacman autographs his back -- then Kurt Angle makes the save! ...waitaminute, is that a face turn? WTF

Consider my thread deleted. I defer to the TNA expert.

But I will echo some thoughts. I definitely second the "WTF!" on Eric Young & Shark Boy. I mean, the MCMG are RIGHT THERE! They'd be perfect for a four-way feud like this. Instead, they get sacrificed to Road Dogg & Billy? What the hell are they thinking? And just to add to the sour taste, VKM went over after the MCMG had 100% of the offense! It reminded me of the old Lex Luger squashes back on Nitro, when the other guy would have all the offense and Luger would just pop up and rack the guy for the win. The MCMG deserve a lot better than that crap.

Why is Billy Gunn wearing GARTERS? The MCMG tore up Jesse before Billy tagged in and for the pin after one move, and I do believe he was out of breath after that.

The Karen/Styles conversation was truly funny stuff. She seems to play up to the level of her skit partners, and they were in a groove.

However, TNA should be ashamed of themselves for cutting away from a tag team pier six brawl to give us more Karen skits.

Samoa Joe entered the arena with the South pacific firedancers ... and lost. The second match was a barnburner slowed down only by Sting's participation.

That's something TNA really has problem with. Their production/timing/planning or whatever you want to call it.
Folks in the ring aren't even done yet or they take it to the back.
It annoys me during the ppvs, where you have 3 hours to plan things out properly and yet every time, as soon as the match is over they take it to Jeremy Borash.
Hardly ever lingering on what just happened in the ring.
Except ofcourse when we get Tenay and "DW" stare solemnly saying how much of an impact X or Y is having and how crazy things are in the venue that night.

That's the story of TNA, one step forward, and two steps back. We get a solid TV match for the main event, but even that could not cleanse the bad taste in my mouth of the MCMG getting squashed by VKM of all people. Just as I was thinking MCMG really has some great tag team moves, which you don't see much of anymore, it's over after one move from a roid-ass who was probably blown up just holding the tag rope. Ugh!

This was my first glimpse of Billy's "Torrie Wilson" outfit. Awesome.

Can anyone explain to me why Karen Angle was trying to bribe people to win a match that they already wanted to win? What is the purpose of trying to convince Christian or AJ that if they win the tag title spot, they can then have a world title shot?

The presumption is that the four guys wanted to win just so they could sabotage Angle's tag-title reign. She's trying to convince folks they could make a credible team with Angle, and in return for their cooperation, could receive a world title shot.

I hate how the announcers tell us what's going on as it's happening. "STING WINS! NOW ANGLE IS IN THE RING! ANGLE IS EXTENDING HIS HAND! AND STING TAKES IT! THEY ARE SHAKING HANDS!"

Of course I suppose it's nice to do for the blind people who still want to watch TV.

Okay, I've been thinking about this (uh, not continuously or anything) and I thought of a possible reason: maybe they've got something else lined up for MMG at the PPV. That would necessitate slotting in Young and Sharky for the PPV 4-way (or gauntlet, or whatever it turns out to be) and leaving MMG free to do whatever.

(I did love the part where Don West was saying something about the "amazing depth" of TNA's Tag Team roster -- just before Young and Sharky came out. Whoops, yeah -- not quite that deep. This is where Basham & Damaja or The Nats would've come in handy.)

I don't actually believe that they have anything better in store for MMG -- 'cause, again, that's the extent of their tag roster -- so oh well.

OH I forgot one of the good thing about this show -- No "The Punisher" Andrew "Test" Martin! Third show in a row!
