Another great show, lots of action and good progression.
Lashely and Dreamer was okay and the crowd was into it, really just a showcase for Bobby until his next title match. The KO match was a little sloppy and probably the low point of the show. The six man tag was a lot of fun while it lasted and I'm really liking the new focus on the division, the talent is definitely there to rebuild.
The Roode and EY promo was very well done and effective at hyping next weeks match, that's stuff TNA doesn't do enough these days. Rhino and EC3 was a little brooding and slow but alteast they are advancing Ethan's character to a darker place which I like. Aries and Sanada had a very old school vibe and delivered a very good effort with the short time they were given. I really dig Storm as this like new age revolutionary, I'm excited to see who else he gives a rebirth to.
The main event was fantastic considering they only got about 11 minutes, with more time those teams could really put on a spectacle. I like how The Wolves didn't feel out of place either, they really belonged with the two legendary teams.
Overall a great show, which has been the trend for awhile now honestly.
Not a bad show at all. The opening segment did go on to long and not much was accomplished. I don't care about the Shaw-Gunner stuff and why would there be a camera in Gunner's hotel room. Madison vs Taryn was fine and it looks like Madison may be turning heel. Where has Brittany been the last few months? The six match x division match was a short spot rest that could have been cut to give the main event more than nine minutes. Sanada vs Aries was really good again. These two have had three matches and all three have been excellent. Not sure what to think of Sanada's knock off look, but it's an improvement over his previous look. The Roode-Young segment was very strong and built to their number one contenders match next week well. The three team rag match was excellent if only it got 5-10 minutes more as it felt a bit rushed and could have used more build during the show.
I don't think the AWA is really a good example. During the eighties a lot of people criticized them for having too many old-timers on the card. They were always a little behind the other promotions, and that eventually killed them.
