NWA/TNA wasn't really all that bad -- the most important part is that it has promise.

Here's wishing that Uncle Ted picks this up for Turner; I would definitely watch this over RAW right now.

Now, I'm not saying I'm going to plunk down $10 every week... but for a diversion from stale WWE stuff at times, it's a good alternative.

Oh -- and I can see why everyone likes Trinity. Mrrowr.

I agree. I ordered NWA-TNA last night for the first time myself and it was quite good, I felt. Not perfect, but well above the current WWE product. Trinity vs Kid Kash was exciting to watch, as was Jerry Lynn vs Amazing Red. I'm actually pretty psyched to see Jarrett vs Raven next week, I hope there aren't 15 run-ins.

I feel crappy for missing it last night. I read that it was awesome. I only seem to catch the OK episodes of TNA, and miss all the good ones. I heard a lot about the intergender matches too.

For those who got last night, it was kind of odd in that the last few weeks have been doing something new for them, and that is building to one BIG show. If you watched last night, do yourself a favor and make sure to get next week's show, because everything from last night and the last few weeks will likely be hitting their payoff. Jarrett/Raven, the AMW breakup, Kash/Trinity (can you smell the Red and Trinity pairing) all of these will be hitting their peaks quite possibly on 4/30.

Teppan, I have a feeling Jarrett/Raven is going to be an ECW style brawl, with about 4 million run-ins, but hopefully they'll go a while with a good match before it goes berserk. And while I know it's not likely, next week would be the perfect time to bring in Jeff Hardy. They will likely have their biggest audience to date, and if he makes his presence felt in the Jarrett/Raven match, he will draw massive heat whichever side he joins in on.

I was pleased with last night's show. I think top to bottom TNA did a good job building everyone up in their respective storylines. And they definitely got me hooked to order the big show next week. Kash/Trinity was incredible and I really enjoyed the Ultimate Sin match. Slash stapling a dollar bill to New Jack's head? ouch.

Except for the last show I ordered (the one where R'n'R Express showed up), each TNA show i've seen has out done the last one tenfold. And I gotta applaud them for this. Now if only they got a TV deal.

Maybe if they got a deal with a big local network in a region (such as MLW with the Sunshine Network), Fox Sports will start showing them as well like with MLW. Hopefully on a national basis.

I am 100 times more excited about the Raven v. Jeff Jarrett match next week than I am about Rock v. Goldberg at Backlash.

Think about that one for a while.

It's kinda funny, because I remember reading Meltzer's recap last night. He said that newbies would have loved it, but it would have given long-time followers headaches.

I wish CRZ would have done a one-time return for last night's show so I can see him type up "WHAT A SHOCKING SWERVE!!!" five or six times.

Swerves aside, though, I'm still looking forward to next week's show. Raven and Jarrett has gotten a lot more hype than any WWE main event these days.




You know it won't be long now. May God help us all!

That's one of the positive things that I do have to say about NWA -- there were, like, actual storylines to follow, it seemed like.

Oh -- I laughed my ass off at the heel corner with the Smackdown! spoiler signs. Hehe.

I, for one, don't care about garbage matches, so Original Sin was eh. Slash was pretty cool. And was it me, or who cared about Justin Credible anymore?

Oh -- Perry Saturn looks like a lizard.
