Here's a full recap from TNAWrestling.com. Good to see Christian's getting right into the thick of things, and (at least for the moment) isn't following the standard TNA line of "New guy's debuting, so we must team him with Jarrett at first".

He cut a promo, and immediately afterwards Team Canada tried to recruit him. He said he'd think about it. Before the main event, Jeff Jarrett was all "He's coming in to steal what we in TNA have worked so hard to achieve", like he did after "Black Tuesday" when 13 wrestlers including The Dudley Boyz were released by WWE.

After the main event (won by Rhino and The Dudley Boyz), Jarrett, AMW and Team Canada attacked Rhino and The Dudleyz, and then Christian came out. He initially had a Team Canada T-shirt on, but he turned on Scott D'Amore, hit him with the Unprettier (the name of which, apparently, isn't copyrighted-- unless they overlooked that), and then assisted The Dudleyz in delivering the 3D to Jarrett.

So... welcome to TNA, Christian! I'm looking forward to seeing you on iMPACT!, which I will most certainly be watching (though I'll have to catch the replay, since I'm working on Saturday).

It was a great show and exactly what TNA needed after a somewhat disappointing Bound For Glory and a bit of a lackluster Impact from last night.

I'm anxious to see where they go with AJ and Joe now. I like that AJ's finally getting a lengthy reign with the X title, and I think Joe should be the guy to end it. Joe could then go on to feud with Daniels or even easily moved up to the world title division.

They really need to get Jarrett out of the world title division, viewers pretty much rejected him on the prime time special. You've got Christian now and also Monty Brown, Abyss, Raven, Rhino and many other possibles like Daniels, Joe, and AJ.

The show was pretty good, with the Elimination X match making me the happiest. Alex Shelley, Roderick Strong, and Austin Aries were stars on a whole other level tonight. The X-Division will belong to them in about 6 months, I'd guess.

Is anyone else no longer impressed with the Canadian Destroyer move?

The real money is on guys like Joe, AJ, and Daniels, Abyss, and Monty Brown to carry the World Title. Raven and Jarrett have had their time in the sun. Rhyno's a good contender, but pales in comparison to the guys I mentioned above in LOOKING like a believable and credible World Champion. Hopefully that changes.

The crowd goes nuts almost every time Joe steps into the ring. Just watch any 6-man, tag team, or battle royal match he's been in so far.

I don't understand the liking for Raven, as he's quite bloated and as a result pretty sluggish in the ring. He just doesn't seem inspired anymore.

Seeing Christian in the TNA ring seemed... off. Like he just doesn't fit into the TNA fold. But first nights are for making first impressions and I still enjoyed the hell out of him. Looks like they're going to make a slow build up to him challenging for the NWA Title. I'd still rather see him challenge Monty Brown rather than Jarrett.

That said, Jarrett is really, really good. I don't like his wrestling, but his reactions are DAMN good at times. There's definitely a spot on the roster for a guy like him, and if he was a perennial challenger for the NWA Title but could never win it back, that'd be just fine. At this point, he can put people over and not lose any heat by doing so.




Take the plunge. Step into liquid.

First half sucked. Second half, I think, was quite good.

I'll have to watch it again later. I dunno. Due to obvious reasons, my heart just wasn't in it today.

I was at this show, and thought it was just superb. The crowd was hot, but the mood was surreal, with everyone's thoughts & prayers being extended to Eddie's family.

That Samoa Joe -- he flat-out stole the show with his stiff kicks & sheer brutality. If TNA can book his feud with AJ correctly, they might have one of the hottest storylines in years.

Although his look/ style/ etc. is decidedly different, Joe is the closest thing to a young, heel Stone Cold in a VERY long time...

It would be trademarked, not copyrighted. And I imagine this would fall into the category of "work product," so depending on how his WWE contract dealt with that, calling it the Unprettier in TNA may or may not be okay.

Did anyone else catch Don West saying "It's a shit eating grin, look at that thing!" in reference to Scott De'Amore as soon as he got into the ring and was going to address Christian the first time? I rewinded the recording 4 times to make sure I had it right. Sure as shit thats what he said. Lol, fuckin comedy.

Well if anyone else is heading out to San Diego Comic Con next week, here is what WWE has in store: Daniel Bryan was a $95 VIP autograph at Wrestlemania Axxess and Hulk Hogan was a $175 Premium VIP autograph session so this is pretty cool.
