'kay. Then before God and Jesus and Mr. McMahon, I apologize for misplaced criticism, being snotty about TNA, and wasting five posts and people's time. I am become death what I complain about other people doing, which is assigning blame before knowing the reasons and motivations behind why something happened. A Thanksgiving lesson for me.
Originally posted by thecubsfanEasiest explanation is Angle, not having worked regularly and dealing with injuries and perhaps even detox, wanted to go as hard he could for as long as he could, could only go as long as 13 minutes.
Or maybe Joe went blind again.
Also, I just wanted to point out that the match is actually closer to 13 and a half minutes -- that's right, it's thiry seconds better than what some here have been claiming!
Okay, I'm done.

Time isn't THAT important. In fact, one of the things I hate most about indy wrestling (especially ROH) is how they book their main events to go forever and a day. Honestly, there are a handful of wrestlers I care to watch for over 30 minutes, let alone going broadway all the fucking time (I'm looking at YOU American Dragon). I hate when I hear about some 20something indy douchbags going 55 minutes in some fucking Armory. I don't want to see it, I don't want to watch it. I watched Joe/Punk II and man...was most of that FFW.
I watched the match. Honestly, the Abyss match was good, the Joe match was good but IS anyone out there claiming Angle is the "best wrestler in the world" anymore. This is going to be just as annoying as Hunter doing it (and I won't even get to you who'd I'd rather see in a main event match). The fact that people are saying "match of the year" as some auto response is ridiculous.
(For the record, Marujui v. Kenta is my new choice).
That's the Impact Zone, and as someone else posted, you don't always book to the live crowd. The live crowds will always cheer Hogan because he's a legend, but that doesn't mean they will pay to see him main event and wrestle.
