Karlos the Jackal Lap cheong Since: 2.1.02 From: The City of Subdued Excitement Since last post: 8 days Last activity: 9 min. # 1 Posted on 5.9.10 2246.16 | Instant Rating: 8.00 I didn't see the show but as I'm faffing around on the interwebs I figured I'd throw up a Q'n'D. MCMG beats Generation Me and retains. Gen Me retaliates after the match, "injuring" Shelley. Douglas Williams beats Sabu with a belt shot and retains. Velvet Sky beats Madison Rayne with a DDT. Abyss pins Rhino via missed Gore and Black Hole Slam. Jeff Jarrett and Samoa Joe beat Kevin Nash and Sting when Samoa Joe KO'd Sting with the Coquina Clutch. AJ Styles forced Tommy Dreamer to say "I Quit" by shoving a fork in Dreamer's eye. Kurt Angle and Jeff Hardy fought to a time limit draw -- one overtime -- two overtimes -- finally stopped due to Angle's excessive bleeding. No contest. Mr. Anderson beats D'Angelo Dinero with the Mic Check. ----- Reports are that MCMG/GenMe was a fun spotfest and that Styles/Dreamer and Angle/Hardy were very good (with the latter marred by goofy booking). I'm surprised that all three ECW guys lost their matches, and I'm assuming we'll see an Angle/Hardy/Anderson 3-way at BfG. Anyone watch? --K Last 5 movies seen: Angels with Dirty Faces *** - Willow n/a - Date Night **1/2 - A Prophet ***1/2 - Kick-Ass *** Promote this thread!

ICQ: # 2 Posted on 5.9.10 2325.23 | Instant Rating: 3.34 I watched - you pretty much hit it on the head. Angle vs. Hardy was just simply amazing - lots of emotion in it and the crowd was solidly into it. It was just stupidly overbooked and should have been the main event. The finish of the match is just everything wrong with TNA right now. I wouldn't say no to a best of 7 series, however. Jeremy Borash reported on Twitter that Kurt had a dislocated rib after the match, too. Gen Me vs. Guns was great, too, though the injury angle kind of lost some of its muster when Shelly walked off (with support of the EMT's) after just seriously "injuring" his neck. Anderson vs. Pope was decent but totally suffered by being after Angle/Hardy (I'd say that since the other semi-final ended in a no-contest then this should have been for the title but this *is* TNA). I thought the Knockout's match was decent but, honestly, I'm just dying for some new faces in the division right now. Overall, it was a fairly average show - if you can get past the stupid booking, definitely check out the Angle match.

I just don't get it, everybody loves this match, and I watched it and it was really boring. It was booked like this epic back and forth struggle, but in execution it was just a really dull indie match where they kicked out of eleven finishers. No drama, just spots.

Loved the Gunns match and the heel turn from GenMe got a good reaction from the crowd. AJ/Dreamer was pretty good. They did some innovative spots and the fork to the eyes looked brutal. Angle/Hardy was great but started slow. I think they did the multiple finishes to make it less predictable due to Angle's "lose and retire" stipulation. I didn't mind the double OT, but ending it due to a cut was stupid and killed the crowd. Anderson/Pope was good, but had the most deflated crowd I've seen in a long time. The rest was stuff that should have been on Impact.

I don't need to see forks in wrestling. Some things are just a bit much.
It's hard to imagine that only 5 short years ago we had 2 major league federations going head to head, and a 3rd with a cult like and growing following.
So where did American pro wrestling go wrong?
