I haven't watched NWA-TNA since Hogan was first mentioned(That had nothing to do with me stopping), and tonight I think I'm going to order the PPV. I was just wondering what are the current storylines? Who's someone to watch for? Any new superstars? and who are the champions? ANy help with any of these questions would be great thanks.
I'll be watching for the possible reformation of Triple X (Daniels, Skipper and Low Ki); for the first in-ring appearance of JJ's newest nemesis, the masked El Leon; for Jonny Fairplay to make a BIG IMPACT; and for the debut of Balls Mahoney, brought in by Sandman to take on Punk and Dinero, who have turned on Raven and joined Jim Mitchell. (And what about ICP?!?)
You can tune in 1/2 hour early for the recap preshow, too!
Also, watch for the America's Cup on the February 11th show. Representing TNA are Jerry Lynn, Chris Sabin, Elix Skipper, and Sonjay Dutt. And representing AAA are JUVI~!, Hector Garza, Abismo Negro, and Mr. Aguila.
Mark out moment for me if this is the same Mr. Aguila that was one ESSA FUCKIN RIOS~!!!
You really SHOULD think about going back to your old Yankees cap, yo!
I *think* he wrestles for IWA in Puerto Rico. If you watched NWA TNA in the very beginning, he was kicking around for the first couple of matches. I'm almost certain he was in the gauntlet for the gold, and then he had matches with David Young, Jarrett, Malice, and a couple of others, and then he disappeared.
Apolo was indeed in the Gauntlet, AND he got a pretty heavy push. I think TNA had big plans for him based on his early push through the first 10 shows or so, until they realized he had absolutely NOTHING special about him, and dropped him.
Hector Garza's okay... Spent some time in WCW as a job boy for the LWO. I wouldn't get overly excited.
I've always wanted to ask this question, but haven't found the proper place. What is the X Division?! I've never watched NWA-TNA, but have always considered it. I don't get digital cable in my damned dorm room, so I won't get to see any till this summer. Which means I also have to watch the god forsaken, "I can't video tape the PPVs I pay for," webcast. I've always figured that the X division is for crazy cruiserweights that fly around the ring all crazy. Am I even close?
"Huard, gonna go back to throw the ball. Sets up, looks, throws towards the corner of the endzone...it is INTERCEPTED INTERCEPTED, THE DUCKS HAVE THE BALL! Down to the 35, the 40. Kenny Wheaton's gonna score! Kenny Wheaton is gonna score! 20, the 10, Touchdown! Kenny Wheaton on the interception, the most incredible finish to the football game!" Jerry Allen... 'Nuff Said
X Division is a style... It's a non-defined style, but most of the competitors are high-flying cruiserweights. There's no weight limit however, and judging on "X", a larger fellow who came in some time ago and doesn't fly, I suspect the style is simply "cool move allowed here".
If NBC spent half as much energy promoting the XFL as it had the AFL, it would probably still be around. But once the ratings went in the tank, they left it floundering like rats leaving a sinking ship.
