He's from the United Kingdom....that means he's British". Thanks for explaining.
Angle will beat Roode. OH THE SUSPENSE!
Who's taping all these peek-a-boo cam segments? It's stupid.
Why is Sky with Sabin? I forgot. Aries/Sabin was good.
Shaw has an interesting look and I like that he wrestles in "normal" clothes. Why do they insist on using those nerdy jobbers though.
Cool seeing Roode and Storm tagging again and it looks like we'll see Beer Money rise again in the future. I admit I am confused by Gunner. Is he a heel, is he a face?
THE TNA WORLD TOUR in....America?
Ugh, when is this Parks/Abyss angle over?
Dixie has TV channel switching heat.
I suppose Gunner is a babyface then? Despite "screwing" Storm a few weeks ago. Why is he cashing in on a fresh Magnus while he has already had a match earlier? Why not cash in after Magnus is beat up?
I do like how Magnus is being portrayed. Instead of being a coward corporate champion he's willing to fight and prove himself which is a breath of fresh air for a heel champ. Dixie/Spud/EC3/Magnus is a pathetic stable though, let's be real.Aj cut a much better promo than usual as did Magnus
This was the second Impact since Bound For Glory that I didn't like. The Velvet/Sabin and Christy/Shaw angles made me lose interest early on. At least Sabin got his title back. That makes him seem like a bit less of a loser. Velvet being such a whiner about cheating is pretty lame considering how she used to be in the Beautiful People.
I do like how Gunner keeps trying to do legitimate cash-ins.
The return of AJ saved the show a little. I wish that AJ and Magnus's belts looked different. One of them should be using the 2007-2010 version of the belt. The 2011-Present version looks so garish.
Didn't see much of the show, but what I saw was okay. The Sting-EC3 feud has been booked excellently and both guys have been very good on the mic and the crowd is really into the feud. Now the issue is will they be able to have a good match? Sting can be carried to good matches by top line workers like Angle, Aries, Joe and Styles, but with others he's put on clunkers. I have no idea what kind of worker EC3 is cause he's only been involved in squash matches. The Aries-Sabin match was okay, but short and really it's sad that there's only two guy in the X division which used to be a staple for TNA that diffeentied TNA from the WWE as did a strong tag team division which is no longer there. Hope the Beer Money reunion was only a one shot deal because I really enjoy Roode as a tag team. Good to see an experienced team beat two guys that are tagging for the first time, it makes sense. Storm has really been lost the last two years after dropping the title maybe a heel turn helps him. The closing segment was really strong as Magnus and Styles were really good on the mic. Magnus showed he's not a lapdog in the closing segment. All in all, some good stories, but not enough wrestling. Not a fan of Bully Ray becoming Bully Raven as I was enjoying him before the strange change of character.
OK, but allow me to retort a little bit. And don't worry, I'll try not to be 100% negative. --Chris Benoit I know it's been a little while since I watched SmackDown, but last I checked, Benoit still isn't back.
