You have no idea how much I'm actually looking forward to Impact now. I'm watching it with a friend, tonight (as tradition), but I was completely convinced it would suck so badly. Those ratings are much higher than anything on the PPV so I'm a happy chappy, again.
I liked past two episodes of Impact. Pacing of both shows was excellent.
Genesis was good too, with Hardy/Roode being ***1/2
, Ray/Abyss ***3/4
and X Division title match ***1/2
, as the MOTYC's.
As far as rematches on Impact go, I prefer Angle/Storm as it was only the second of their 4 matches that was really, really good. First back in September was great, FR and Genesis were solid, but unspectacular, while this 4th match was superb.
I might little overrated Hardy/Roode from Impact, after watching it again, I'm lowering it to from ***1/2 to ***
. Worth checking out, though. Nevertheless, TNA has begin the year very good, and I hope they continue the year with excellent matches and shows.
