TNA put out a really bad outing this week. The show seemed all over the place, and they tried to squeeze way to many matches into an hour show. I know that they are trying to showcase their product for the weekly PPV, but it didn't work for me this week. They should really try to get one solid match on every card. A quick rundown on what I thought of the matches.

Kid Kash vs Amazing Red - This was probably the best match of the show, but they were just getting going when it ended a little over four minutes in. Kash did murder Red nicely with the Vertabreaker though to end it.

AJ Styles vs Kazarian - This match really wasn't good at all. Other than a couple of nice clotheslines and a good kick or two from Styles this match had nothing to offer. It was a little on the high side of six minutes and was cut by a commercial break. A lot of weak looking flippity flop offense in this one that really didn't look any more impressive than a gymnastics contest.

Triple J gets his own promo video that would make Helmsley weep.

David Young and The Naturals vs 3 Live Kru - David Young throws throws the worst looking punch that I may have ever seen. Konnan and Road Dogg blow up and stand on the apron two minutes in, but lucky for them and me it ends about thirty seconds later.

JJJ and Dusty come out after the match and chat with Killings about titles and Kings of the Mountains. JJJ tells Killings that he will never be able to do two things; One he will never be able to walk aroung and call himself TNA Champion, (which Killings has been able to do twice now) and two call himself King of the Mountain, yup. Dusty says that Killings isn't a black man that who won the TNA title but a man that won the title. Where the fuck did that come from?

It's Monty Brown vs Sonny Siaki whose TNA star has dropped quite a bit of late. Monty Brown wins. Nothing of note here.

Team Canada vs Team Mexico - Essa Rios looks like a chubby rocker chick these days. The six man last week was better. It kinda looks like these guys were told to go out there and just burn some time to end the show. Team Canada cheats to win and Team TNA come out and it gets all Shmozzy.

The show was a big step back from last week, but that's been the two year path of TNA thus far. There is much to much going on in one hour and half of what's going on isn't all that much anyway.

The show was terrible. Kazarian sucks, give it up with that guy. Him and Michael Shane stink and they can't get over, stop trying. When all you have to do to get over in X matches is be either any good or just kind of exciting (Elix Skipper comes to mind here), you'd think pretty much any cruiser type they wanted to sign could get it done, but Kazarian and Shane have had a lot of opportunities. (Not that anything on the show had anything to do with Michael Shane but if I'm going to say Kazarian sucks I thought I might as well say he sucks too)

The Mexicans and Canadians have no chemistry whatsoever, possibly because none of the ones in that match save for Petey Williams are very good. Garza and Williams should do a singles feud and let the other dudes fight it out.

Having a bunch of two-minute matches isn't good for anyone involved here. I don't really get what they were going for. You've got an hour, have three matches or so and give one a little bit of time to make an impression.

But like you said, this is the TNA pattern. Do something okay, do something bad, do something bad, do something bad, do something okay. Then it's a "step in the right direction."

I just hope this is (already) the beginning of the end...

I wonder why ratings for the show aren't given out? Hmm...

Let me just go back and read last week's thread and make sure we're still talking about the same show.

LOOK OUT VINCE

I only got to see the first match (I have it on tape for later) but I had to chuckle at the "KID KASH VS. VS AMAZING RED" FOX Box. Proofreaders are EXPENSIVE

I actually liked this weeks show. Not as good as last weeks, but not bad either.

I was, again, pleased by what I saw. (Except, as CRZ pointed out, a match vs. "VS". I wonder if he's related to AdBreak.)

A few friends were over while I was watching the tape, and one stated "It's like the WWF used to be." Although some made comments like "They all look the same." So they were also enjoying the show (we fastforwarded through the talking, so I can only comment on the in-ring action).

From what I saw,Impact was a good show. Angles were kept to a minimum,plenty of wrestling, and pretty nice production. It's nice to be able watch something other then WWE on cable.

Kazarian's quickly deteriorating. He's not the same guy who delivered that classic series with Chris Sabin last year. Disagreed on Michael Shane, though. I think he's been doing very well with what he's been given (and he's held his own, despite that period with the anchor known as Shane Douglas).

Right now, the show's nothing to write home about. I would like nothing better than to see TNA step it up a notch while the crowds are still enthusiastic.

I wanted more from the show. I happen to catch it the week they hyped the 2-year anniversary, and that ate a lot of time.

The matches weren't bad. Well, OK, they were. The 3LK match was ridiculously short and anticlimactic; Young is not a guy with chops or presence to carry this angle. Styles' match only lit up when they exchanged spots and 2-counts (and again killed off some nice potential finishers). I haven't seen TNA in a while, but I was shocked to see how they still can't decide what to do with Siaki and they jobbed him hard to Flex Mentallo this week.

I like the double entrance ramps, I like what use of the six-sided ring I saw, I liked the absence of dancing cages and I thought they did a good job presenting the various angles.

The Fox Box would work a lot better if they offered a color box next to the names so it matches each guys tights. Or even present their names in that color. One network used to do that with boxing (HBO?), and it helps when you've tuned in midway.

I think I could accept JJJ as the evil champ if he hit people with something other than guitars. It just remind me of his WWF Elton John-glasses days. Speaking of which, how long has he been hitting people with guitars?

I'll bypass the obvious joke of Joey naming his brand "Extremely Hardcore". Seems like Joey wants to be the driving force behind an "ECW II." I wouldn't be surprised if the Dudleys and other WWE releases wind up there.
