I was just wondering how many here were still ordering these TNA PPV's? I know I haven't seen it since show #6 or #7. I just saw a couple of them, but was turned off by the crappy angles, the blown spot fests (which were hailed as their signiture matches) and the complete lack of interesting participants.
There hasn't been any threads about it lately, so I take that as interest being non-existent.

I haven't missed a show yet, although if Russo continues to talk for 1/4 of the show, I'm gone.
I like cruiser trainwrecks...this last show had nothing to write home about, but the show before had a great 20-minute 6-man tag with the SATs & The Amazing Red vs. Elix Skipper, Christopher Daniels, and Low Ki that was worth the cost by itself.
Since you quit watching, they've dumped the Dupps (and the Dupp Cup), they've dumped the midgets, they've dumped Bruce as Miss TNA, and they've dumped Disco Inferno. That frees up a lot of time for more wrestling -- and a couple of shows were wall-to-wall -- unfortunately, in the last couple of shows, they've filled up that time with Russo blah blah blahing ENDLESSLY.
I don't post much about it because I don't post much about wrestling at all anymore. But, yeah, I'm buying it.
The TNA shows are becoming an impulse buy for me. I did order the last show before the break, and if they continue to bring old-timers out of moth balls every week (Piper, LOD, Dusty) I might have to start ordering with some regularity.
Vince Russo looks like he ate Ed Ferrarra though.
The call is from heroism; will you accept the charges?
I've bought two or three.. the first one and then a few after that. But it's pretty unwatchable to me, and I can't justify spending $10 on something that I fall asleep while watching.
I like Jerry Lynn and some of the cruisers and I love spots, but they make no effort to transition in between them. They'll hit one, then roll around on the mats outside the ring, regroup, then hit another one. No flow.
And Jeff Jarrett gets a little lispy on the mark, which is annoying.

I used to order them if a good X-Division title match was on. I stopped ordering on a regular basis in July, after the triple-threat match with Low-Ki, AJ Styles, and Jerry Lynn. Nothing else really interested me after that. I ordered last Wednesday's show, just to see what they were up to, and boy has it gone bad. Why is Sonny Siaki X-Division Champion? The show was terrible, built around Vince Russo, and interviews. When Brian Lee is in the match of the night, it's time to re-think strategies. I doubt I'll order again for a while.
Oh, but I did enjoy Mike Tenay's performance. Why isn't he calling RAW? Ross and Lawler's acts are old, and Tenay is the best in the business. How can Ernest Miller get an announcing gig and Tenay can go overlooked? TELL ME!!!
Well i've watched it some and enjoyed what I have seen, but the only reason I don't order it is because i'm not going to pay a weekly fee to watch any show, I wouldn't even pay to watch my favorite show.
The handbaby get a cruiserweight title shot? Are you serious? Have you seen that thing sitting on top of the Smackckdown set lately? It's HUGE. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind a Big Show/Handbaby match.
