Despite only being able to understand half of the show, I was curious to check it out, considering it's essentially a TNA product and there are some bigger names involved.

There wasn't too much wrestling on this show but, given that it's an introductory show, I suppose we can overlook it. I'm interested in the alliance between Dutt, Magnus, and Steiner. I think that Dutt and Magnus could be a pretty good tag team together (and Steiner is just crazy enough that I can't get enough of his promos).

Next week apparently has Chavo Guerrero Jr. vs. Sanjay Dutt, which should be pretty good.

[1/5] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jImsYY3S8VQ - mostly an introduction with an odd, surreal music and dancing segment.

[2/5] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UmQ32P3YDLc - introduction of the talent involved (english introduction by Borash and promos for Magnus, Morgan, and Steiner toward the end)

[3/5] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ov1amym4UaM - Dr. Nick Dinsmore vs. Mahabali Veera.

[4/5] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F7fKuff0XJ4 - English backstage promo from Magnus, Dutt, and Steiner talking to someone on the phone plus the return of the MasterAdonis-lock Challenge.

[5/5] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYvdeLhdJOE - Magnus vs. Matt Morgan in a pretty good showing.

Strangely, I thought that the show had a much hotter crowd and better production values than the Impact Zone, which just highlights the need for them to get out to other venues.

This was actually a pretty good show. Much better than the average TNA show. The arena and production values made TNA look bush league by comparison. I would absolutely watch this show every week on television, even without understanding a good portion of it.

Something tells me you have not watched Impact in a while. Impact has improved greatly since Bruce Prichard took over as head of creative. The show has it's warts mainly the Bischoff family feud but otherwise its usually a good show. I do agree that this show was pretty good but it's not surprising considering Dave Lagana and Dutch Mantell booked it.

This was well produced and the crowd was a terrific 80's type crowd which fits Steiner's heel act. I heard he almost caused riots at the shows. I agree with graves9 somewhat on impact, the shows have improved over the past six months. The main event picture and the Aries-Shelley feud grabs me, there are other things that don't. Still much better show than it was a year ago.

Chavo rolled those R's about 3 seconds too long. Nice production value. I might be able to get into this show.

I haven't watched TNA consistently in about 6 months, but I do pop in and out most weeks. I haven't seen a whole lot that I like, but the feud between Aries and Shelley (who I believe to be, without question, the single most underutilized talent in TNA) has been pretty great. But what I was really comparing here was the difference in direction and production between the two products. I'm so sick of looking at the door frames of the Impact Zone, of seeing guys with their backs to the camera or apparently not even knowing where the camera is. I'm tired of the cameras at ringside that don't have any sense of dynamic movement. I'm tired of the cheap-looking set and laser lights from the 1980's. Ring Ka King looked like a professional wrestling program, run by people who know what they're doing. It looked like something that could compete with the WWE - whether it actually could or not is another matter entirely, but it had a slick professionalism about it that made it seem like it was on the same level.

You make very fair points about the production and direction,and the fact that they do run their show from the rinky dink Impact Zone. I do think the production values have improved over the past few months, but there's still work to be done. Whenever TNA does go on the road the promotion and wrestlers do feel major league and the wreslers look like stars. I have seen some clips on you tube from the impact tapings in the UK and it looks pretty good. Agree on Shelley obviously. I view him as one of the most well rounded wrestlers in the business, I feel the same about Aries.

WWE should be paying attention: it's nice that the Youtube channel for ColorsTV is allowing the show to viewed worldwide.

I have little faith that the new revamped WWE Youtube show will be available to those outside the US.

EDIT: IF you would prefer a HD version (in one part instead of five), scroll down to the bottom.











EDIT: Here's an HD version from ... probably a less official source.



The 1/29/12 show (the show airs two episodes a week) is also up from the same YouTube account, but - pay attention, Oliver - "The uploader has not made this video available in your country." I can't even try to embed it so you can see if it'll work for you...

All the videos posted work for me here in Canada. I'm really digging the Ring Ka King show.

Yeah, I still went, and wow... I'm amazed how different the road product is from what's on TV. It felt like an ECW show from back in the day, where the wrestlers are all about fan service.
