TNA Impact – February 19, 2010


TNA Impact – February 19, 2010

   After a very strong PPV showing Sunday night, that brings us to tonight’s episode of Impact. The Pope, D’Angelo Dinero scored an impressive trio of victories to become the number contender. Meanwhile AJ Styles was able to beat Samoa Joe, when referee Eric Bischoff was distracted by Ric Flair while Joe had the champ pinned. A great PPV from TNA, but was missing the knockouts, hopefully we get some great knockout action tonight.

TNA Impact: Yet Another Montreal Screwjob!

TNA Impact – January 21, 2010

This is the first Impact after a very impressive PPV, Genesis, but TNA is really in trouble. The biggest thing was the fact that the producers basically chastised the fans before the taping on Monday. This really made TNA look bad in the eyes of fans, as it almost like when WCW taped in Orlando years ago and told people when to cheer and when to boo. The video of this was up on youtube and other video sites, and has probably been seen by quite a lot of people now, and the fact that TNA considers their fans to be part of the show, and wants to only cheer they who they want is not a good sign. Also reports this week are that both Awesome Kong & Melissa Anderson have left the company, if this is true, that really suck as both are amazing workers. If Kong has indeed left the company, one can assume this had to do with the whole Bubba Sponge incident, which I’m not going to go into, suffice to say you can find the story on anyway. Well, the sinking ship of TNA needs some sort of salvation, as I really want TNA to survive and even thrive, but the question is how can they if Hogan and company stifle the talent? Almost makes one wonder if Hogan is a double agent working for Vince to kill the company and drive it down so Vince can buy it cheap, of course saying that may fire up the conspiracy nuts to believe that!! Anyways, let’s get to tonight’s episode, and hope for maybe something good, after all this has to be better than RAW, right? Continue reading

TNA Genesis: Much Better than Expected!

TNA Genesis – January 17, 2010

Finally got my copy of Genesis ready to roll and I have to admit, I’m not looking forward to this show. I have a bad feeling that this is going to be the beginning of the end for TNA, and that would really be disappointing. With all the rumors and garbage going on about TNA, I really fear for the future of this company. Rumors of older guys coming in, the removal of the six sided ring, and more power to Hulk and friends, I think this is going to be a mistake now. I was optimistic at first about bring in Hogan, as I thought this would give TNA some credibility, but now I think Hulk may be the death knell for TNA. Genesis is supposed to be about the rebirth and new beginnings, but I fear this may be the start of a massive downward slide for TNA, much like WCW did, and as WCW did there would no way to save the company. I really hope I’m wrong about this, but I’m not feeling too confident in the future of TNA, which I’ve been following since day one. So, let’s see what kind of damage Hulk Hogan and company have done to TNA. Continue reading

TNA Impact: Greatest TV Match Ever

TNA Impact: December 17, 2009

Since my copy of WWE Superstars doesn’t seem to want to play in my DVD player, I guess I’m going to start with Impact then (I typed this before I did the Superstars show). All I have to say about this episode, please be better than last week’s episode, let last week be and exception to the norm. With the PPV coming up on Sunday, we should get some big pushes to the PPV. Continue reading

TNA Impact: Russo books a trainwreck

TNA Impact – December 10, 2009

So far this week we’ve had one good show and one bad show, and from the match listing for tonight this looks like it could be a bad one. With TNA’s next PPV coming up in 10 days they need to continue building the two good matches, Desmond/Angle and Styles/Daniels, and put some better focus on the knockouts, but I don’t think that is what is coming up tonight. January 4th’s show should be very interesting to see what TNA decides to throw out there against WWE Raw, I would love to see TNA be competitive against WWE and bring back the wrestling wars of the late 90’s, but TNA needs to get rid of Russo and focus more on the in ring talent and less on the flotsam like Lashley, Rhino, Team 3D and Sting. Well, let’s see how this week’s show goes, not optimistic at all. Continue reading

TNA Impact: Nash’s got a Secret

TNA Impact: December 3, 2009

Surprisingly this morning I was able to find Superstars, Impact and Smackdown all at the same time. At least I don’t have to wait to watch them this week. Glad to have my Impact so quickly this week, always a show to look forward to, although I do miss Angelina Love on the show. Hopefully she comes back soon; Lacey just isn’t cutting it with the team. Regardless, let’s get on with the show this week. Continue reading
