Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Hey there Shocker, thought I’d finally pop in and leave a review of your last episode of Impact.
Wolfe destroying Morley definitely sent the message and set the tone for what’s to come in his Last Man Standing match with RVD. I especially liked how you had Wolfe count to ten. That was a nice touch.
I liked how Morgan said nobody wanted to be his partner but he still managed to get the cream of the crop and then you had him announce Jethro Holliday as his partner to no crowd reaction. The finish of the tag match was great. I chuckled at the way you described Holliday “surprisingly” getting in some offense even though it was just a couple of right hands.
Haven’t really followed your thread too closely so I didn’t know you had Beer Money feuding against each other until now. The meeting in Bischoff’s office between them was a simple but effective segment because it has me looking forward to their encounter.
Having Lethal pull off the victory due to Daniels being distracted by Helms was a smart move. Makes the champ look a lot more susceptible to losing against Helms at Slammiversary. As of now I can’t really predict a winner which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
Having the Machine Guns give their take on the upcoming no.1 contender match added some valuable insight. Giving them face time when they aren’t in a match is never a bad choice.
The Team 3D .vs. Gen Me match was by the book although I did enjoy the finish. I liked how they were able to counter the 3D and I would love to see Max actually get Ray up on his shoulders for the Rolling Fireman’s Carry.
I loved Daffney’s short promo because I could see those exact words coming out of her mouth. Somehow you were able to convey Daffney’s twisted delivery just by the words on the paper and all it took was a few lines.
Hopefully we get a face-to-face confrontation next week between Pope and Sting. I understand keeping them separated for now but hopefully you have something planned to add an extra level to their match at Slammiversary. I realize the stakes, but I still feel they need some more mic time to really drive home why people should pay to see the match.
Yeah, I didn’t expect a clean finish in the Hardy/Anderson match but it was still well executed because the schoolboy came out of nowhere and up until then I thought Hardy had it in the bag with the Twist of Fate. Letting Hardy get some immediate payback was fine by me as I’m sure the Twist of Fate on the stage would be wicked to see in real life.
I’m very thankful for the recap of the Joe/Angle ladder match because I wasn’t reading your thread at the time, but just from that recap alone it makes me want to look back and find it to read it in full. I’m glad you recapped it because otherwise I wouldn’t have known the full details and it definitely added another dimension to the main event.
Holy ouchies at the military press drop onto the guardrail. Nice original spot. Wow, wasn’t expecting a clean finish to this match either. Glad I was wrong. Once again, a very well planned finish.
Total chaos at the end there but it was a nice way to lead into the main event being scheduled for next week. Can’t say it’s something we haven’t seen before, having a tag match featuring all of the guys in the main event, but it should still be a good match. Plus, it should free up some time to build up the other matches on the card.
Overall, I have to say that your style of writing is very easy to read and the show has a good flow. The Beer Money feud is what has my interest piqued the most. I can’t wait to see what else develops between them. Looking forward to next week.
As far as the house shows are concerned, it’s a unique feature but I don’t think they added much to be honest. Other than the tension escalating between Beer Money and Eric Young’s new beard, I didn’t get too much out of it.
