The Quick n Dirty for TNA Impact 3.5.09 from the Impact Zone in Orlando, FL.

- Jarrett says that Angle is suspended for a week without pay for his actions last week. They've apparently donated his salary to a worthy cause.

- Start Show. Tenay and West bicker, with West saying that anyone who's had friends turn their backs on them would understand where he was coming from this week. Tenay promises to address the comments made last week.

- Foley brings out Sting to thank him. He takes him down memory lane, basically attributing his (Foley's) entire career to dropping an elbow off the second rope onto Sting. He says he can't stand the sight of Sting in MEM garb, though, and says that TNA needs the real Sting back. Sting says there's no way he's going to let someone like Angle decide whether he'll stay in the Mafia or not. He says he still gets along with the rest of the people in the Mafia, bringing them out. Nash says that the MEM need both Angle and Sting to carry out what they set out to do. Nash proposes a fight for honor (including a handshake) at Destination X, saying that way the title will stay with the Mafia and they'll be stronger than before. Longish promo, but decent. As the segment ends, Angle arrives at the building. So much for being suspended.

- Rough Cuts on Ultimate X.

- Backstage, we have Lauren with Lethal Consequences, looking rather swank tonight. Lethal went into Flair mode, before realizing it's the "wrong guy," switching back to Savage mode. Funny stuff. Essentially, Lethal Consequences threaten the Machine Guns.

X-Division Title: Alex Shelley over Kiyoshi via Frogsplash in 4:20. Team No Limit did absolutely nothing the entire time they were out there. This featured no psychology and less selling, but it was quick paced, plus that Frogsplash was massive, so we'll go ** on the PES.

- Postmatch, Suicide attacks and wipes out the Guns. Bleh. West is right on when he climbs all over Suicide for the shitty Pearl Harbor attacks and tells him to fight it out like a man in Ultimate X.

- Backstage, Angle shittalks to Steiner in their locker room. You'd think TNA would have some mechanism in place to ensure that "banned" people don't make it inside any locker rooms. Nash reminds him what happened last week. Booker tells Angle that his salary went towards getting the Frontline new suits, which rightfully pisses him off, and he sets off to get them back.

- Backstage, Beer Money continue to deliver the goods on the mic. Tonight's Off The Wagon challenge is against LAX, so Roode tells them to "work in a soup kitchen for all he cares." They're sorry about LAX's damn luck. Storm accidentally slaps Roode's ass while letting him know it's time to go, but then corrects his mistake, and slaps Jackie's ass. Ha!

- Hernandez has a mic as he enters, and he says they're not going anywhere. Backstage, Booker talks on the phone, talking about setting someone up. INTRIGUE~. Then he channels Black Snow, which is amazing.

- ODB has even more suitors, including Shark Boy. Apparently his pickup line is, "have you ever been eaten by a Shark?" BAHAHAHA!

- Backstage, Angle chokes Creed with a cable in his quest to regain his money and suits. He shouts random threats at Jarrett while he's at it. Multi-tasking!

Four Corners: The Beautiful People over Awesome Kong/Raisha Saeed, Sojourner Bolt/Rhaka Khan, and Taylor Wilde/Roxxi when Angelina pinned Roxxi with the Lights Out after tons of interference in about 7 minutes. This was a long clusterfuck devoid of any storytelling. Some of these girls can make use of 7 minutes in singles competition, but this kind of showcase throwaway match does no one any favors. 1/4* on the PES.

- Backstage, Jarrett is PISSED. He says there will be repercussions. Yeah, if you employed better security measures, you really wouldn't be seeing this day, would you, Jeff?

- We get a recap of the Styles/Booker drama as Booker comes out address his issues. He makes nice with AJ, saying he was wrong in his assessment about AJ. He wants AJ to come tot he ring so they can squash the whole thing and shake hands. He says if AJ brings the belt with him, he'll not pursue any legal action. AJ doesn't show, so Booker starts getting angry. Finally, AJ's music hits, but he's a smart one so he sneaks in from behind to clock Steiner with the Legends Belt. The numbers gain on him, however, so he makes a slick escape with the Legends belt to the ramp, where he is prompty arrested by cops. That'll teach you to steal, Styles! Booker has his belt back, but one of the cops is in the ring, and he turns out to be Samoa Joe. He holds the fuckin sling blade to Steiner's throat again, before TNA security come down to reason with him and he lets go. THE FUCK WAS THAT? This show is getting more and more painful as I go on, with *gasp* only West's heel commentary providing some kind of entertainment.

- At the announcers' desk, West gets sick of Tenay defending TNA's stupid logic and walks off. No! Well, there goes my salvation. At the ramp, Angle is kicking Jay Lethal's ass. He puts him in the ring for the Angle Slam, then takes the suit. JJ has had enough and promises to get him a piece of Angle.

- Abyss talks about Tom and Jerry, bringing up a really good point by asking how come Tom and Jerry were friends at the end of every episode. Somehow this leads to Dr. Stevie convincing Abyss to stop using weapons. Tune in next week!

Match 3: Matt Morgan over Shane Sewell via Hellevator in about 3 minutes. Morgan looked good, but this squash doesn't really mean anything. Yeah, he beat a former referee, great! Match was nothing. 1/2* on the PES.

- Postmatch, Morgan calls Abyss a loser because he needs a therapist. Morgan challenges him to a 10000 Thumbtacks Match.

- Elsewhere, Angle beats up Eric Young to get himself another suit. Greedy bastard! He's looking for JJ.

- Backstage, Cornette tells Jarrett that playing with Angle will get him bitten. That came out wrong, didn't it? Sting says it all ends in two weeks, so JJ gets a nice line about leaving him a piece of Angle's ass for Destination X. Wow, all wrong, all double meanings! Oops.

Off The Wagon: LAX over Beer Money via DQ when Roode chaired Hernandez in 8:15. You could see the finish coming as soon as the match was announced, but the in-ring action was fairly decent. **3/4 on the PES.

- Postmatch, 3D make the save, and say a lot of negative things about Beer Money, to which their response is a succinct 'Yep!' AWESOME! This is why I love this team.

- Angle comes out to threaten Jarrett and call him demented for attempting to take his money. Angle says he's gonna eat Jarrett tonight as an appetizer and then Sting as the main course at Destination X. Again! What's up with all the gay innuendo tonight? Jarrett comes down to the ring and beats his ass, before Angle turns the tide with a low blow. Jarrett sends him into a wall, though, and tosses him out of the door.

- End Show.

Wrestling Counter: 23 minutes.

--> This was one of the worst TNA shows I've seen in a long while. The only positive things were the Beer Money match and the very short promo afterward. I'm losing interest in Angle, Jarrett, Sting, and the Mafia week by week, and this show did not help. It's still an ADHD show, and they really need to decide which stories to treat as primary stories and which to treat as secondary ones. Didn't any of TNA's writers/bookers play Extreme Warfare Deluxe Version 3.0 or above?

I loved heel Don West. I also loved extreme close-ups of Velvet Sky's assets.

I hate almost everything else about this show, especially the Jarrett segments. He leaves his office to get at Angle. Then nothing happens and he appears back in his office 10 minutes later, having only really changed his shirt. He finally leaves again, and this "not an active wrestler" beats up the top heel by himself and sends him packing, making me think that if Sting can't finish Angle on the 15th, he is a real jabronie.

I find Dark West horrible. I enjoy the heel-color commentator template when done well. This was stale. Because West and Tenay were simply gainsaying, there was no energy to what they were doing. It was eye-rolling bad. Maybe if West did more than berate the faces for opposing the heels. Maybe if he could offer clever turns of phrase. I like my heel commentators funny. West wasn't.

While we watch Jarrett and Angle and Sting and Foley take up the main event, Hernandez remains a strong prospect and he should be brought up soon. The possibility of Joe/Hernandez or Styles/Hernandez has more appeal than virtually anything involving the MEM.

Physics question: Styles clobbered Steiner with the belt to the head. Steiner was wearing the chain-mail headwrap. Steiner shrugged off the hit. Normally a belt shot knocks out a wrestler. Wouldn't a belt shot to chain mail hurt more than an unprotected hit? Do we assume Styles is that much of a lightweight compared to Steiner?

When did Shane McMahon get a blonde dye job and take over TNA?
West's heel schtick is the most astonishingly convoluted nonsense in a long while. Tenay didn't stand up for him, so he now hates every single face on the roster? WTF? Can't they just have the guy start subtly favoring the heels? Why does it have to be a full blown angle?

Heel Don West should really start trying to sell me baseball cards.

It's not bad enough that LAX has title shots but they aren't actually using them or going anywhere with the angle...now they beat the tag champs by DQ, and that sets up a title match--between the champs and the Dudleys! Because, yet again, the overwhelming message from TNA is: the only wrestlers worth a damn are the ones you know from WWE or WCW. They spend so much time screaming about how the Main Event Mafia could only be destroyed from the inside (because, you know, the homegrown TNA guys wouldn't have a chance against them), and even with that the anti-MEM forces mostly revolve around Jarrett and Foley. And now this, too. Yeesh.

I did enjoy the Beer Money/LAX match, FWIW.

The joke I've known for years (too lazy to check if this was one of CRZ's regular lines) was that the mesh is D&D-ish and adds +2 defense versus cruiser weight attacks.
AJ is a cruiser weight so yeah, he can shrug it off.

That'd be a Hocking original.

I always thought they should add a fourth member to Diamonds in the Rough too. Except I thought the new member should actually tag with Simon who had a good tag run earlier in TNA.
