They should be doing something better and more productive with the TV Title than having it be the basis of a Devon vs. Robbies feud. The same goes for wasting TV time on that feud.

It's too bad RVD is still awful on the mic and Roode is stuck playing off him after that month of great promos with Storm. I wasn't fond of RVD vs. Hardy either.

The Bully/Aries segment was really good. They should have positioned that earlier in the show because the first hour was pretty weak.

The six-man was good. I'm unsure why Daniels/Kazarian are getting a title match at the PPV. Last week they angered the GM, they haven't won a match in like 2 months and lost clean 20 minutes after it was announced on TV that they're getting a title shot. I'm unsure why Angle and AJ are facing each other at the PPV either. AJ/Angle vs. Daniels/Kazarian, however, would make total sense.

They should have passed on Silva. He was bad and showed nothing in his try out squash. I had issues with his promo tonight too. What I gathered from tonight's show was that he looked bad last week, lost in 2 minutes, the average fan watching didn't care, every judge said he choked, and he got rattled by the crowd while cutting a promo leading to him having to start over, but a worked % of Twitter people liked him, he yelled and they need bodies (never mind all the talented guys under contract they're doing nothing with) so he got a contract. He and this concept weren't worth spending that much TV time on tonight. The concept is decent, but it needs to be retooled. The backstage segment and set up for the in ring segment were hokey.

The main event was fine though a bit underwhelming for a supposedly big match. At least they're finally letting Roode get one over on established ex-WWE guys.

Them doing nothing with the Guns this early into their return is baffling. If they aren't going to put them in a feud, at least give them vignettes or some promos (they could have easily found room for one tonight) to maybe keep them somewhat relevant and maybe avoid letting all the air out of their return. Creative should have had more than a two week plan for them.

Caught some of the show and Hogan and Flair opening the show was a bad idea imo. Why start the show with two old fossils that thankfully never wrestle and just so Hogan could get Flair to be the judge on the stupid gut check thing? They couldn't just have a short backstage interview setting it up? That RVD promo is a top contender for worst promo of the year. He looked and sounded baked out of his mind. I love how he said nothing and just kept repeating his name. I loved how he said when kept saying he's so excited to be back when the only way he could have looked more excited is if he was getting a colonsopty at the time. Roode cut a good promo and got good heat, but there's only so much he can do when sharing a segment with RVD. So the TV title gets defended every week and we have to watch a dreadful Devon-Rob Terry match while the X division guys and The MCMG sit home? Really? I am at least give the TV title to someone good if it's gotta be defended on a weekly basis. I thought Anderson Vs Roode was pretty good with Roode carrying Anderson to his best match since his series of matches with Angle. I liked that Roode pretty much beat Anderson cleanly or as cleanly as a heel can win and even recovered from Hardy's interference to win. I liked that he took out the top three baby faces. This was really the strongest they had booked Roode since he won the title. If only they would have done that months ago.

RVD was so damn bad on the mic and his in ring work is so sloppy his punches so fake looking. I wish he would go away. TNA fired Anarqua but is still employing Rob Terry for some reason. Anderson and Roode have more of a backstory than RVD and Roode do. Don't care about the Anderson-Hardy feud and won't care if either guy turns heel though turning Hardy heel would be retarded. Wish the six man tag got much more time than it got.

Two huge stars like Hogan and Flair fighting might be something in a bigger company but in TNA it just comes off as two shells of their former selves fighting in a sound-stage. I have absolutely no desire to see it nor sit through it for the next few months until BFG.

Speaking of has-beens - how does RVD come back from doing nothing for a year and being off of television to being the number one contender? I didn't care about him a year ago why would I care now? Especially when you have Christopher Daniels, AJ, Kaz, and a multitude of others just sitting around doing nothing.

I also found it hilarious how they mentioned, during the Gutcheck segment, about how the X-Division is where the talent is despite not doing anything with the title for how long and only having like two or three individuals in it compared to a year ago.

The rest was pretty 'meh'. I thought that the possibility of a Devon vs. Bully Ray feud was awful a week ago but now that we're back to Devon and Robbie E, I'd give anything to see it.

I still don't see the point of this endless Abyss storyline either. Seriously - what is the point?

Unless they're doing to do something with MCMG, then I won't even bother tuning in anymore.

The match wouldn't matter no matter what promotion had them wrestling each other. Those two guys wrestling each other has been sad and pathetic since like 1999.I mean the WWE had them wrestling each other on Raw in '02 when Hogan was champion and the rating bombed and the match was just so sad.

Headlining a PPV in 2012 with Hogan v. Flair would be akin to headlining a PPV in 1997 with Bruno Sammartino vs. Harley Race.

Bruno Vs Race in 1997 probably would have been better than Hogan Vs Piper was back in 1997.

I really enjoyed the Knockout's match. Brooke kept getting knocked off the apron while Velvet Sky put in a lot of good work against the solid teamwork of Gail and Madison. When Brooke got in the match it showed how much effort she's been putting into improving and the psychology of winning with Gail's Eat Defeat was excellent.
