Like it was to give Shaw and Silva contracts in the first place. No contracts --> no need for them to waste precious TV time.
No language barrier. I understood what you said perfectly...
You actually contradicted yourself simply because since this show is taped that's why the new guys are getting the TV time to shine. Let them have their week to actually feel part of the company instead of be random jobbers who never appear. One week won't make a difference and. like you said, the viewership would probably be toned down thanks to the Holiday. No sense in making Impact "big" w/o the prospected viewers tuning in. No harm, no foul on TNA's part here. Besides, I rather see these new guys over Jesse Godderz or Matt Morgan. Those wrestlers are terrible and they still have contracts. Life isn't fair, ya know.
Bashing the ladder match is fine. Not everyone digs those types of matches. I understood that one. The Gut Check hate, which is only by one person, is baffling. It's actually showing that the segment has legs and now will finally work out by getting them on TV. Oh, and yeah, Aces & 8's program seems to be fucking up. TNA needs to inject some new developments in that ASAP. Demolishing Magnus & Young is decent, but not enough to make up for the consecutive losses to Kurt Angle. That's who should be getting owned right now. Along with some major plot developments coming through.
