Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Considering that Bound for Glory was a good PPV, and the company seems to be going in the right direction(Pushing young stars, not resigning Booker, etc) I think it will end up being a good move for Nigel. Shit, he's already gonna wrestle Angle at his first ppv, I highly doubt he would've got pushed that hard in the E.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Wait, so I get Nigel in TNA, but why is he facing Angle on PPV right away?

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

So he can be established as a Main Eventer right away. Even with a loss in a highly contested match up it will show that he's a force to be reckoned with.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Maxx, Russo is apparently super(man) high on Nigel, so he's giving him a pretty good role right off the bat.

He's attacking the top dog trying to make a name for himself in TNA. Simple Booking 101.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm not questioning the push, but as someone who doesn't watch TNA how did that get set up? One minutes he is in WWE then he is facing Angle in TNA. Was there a TV segment to set this up or is it just random match nonsense from TNA? What happened.

Oh ok. Yeah at the taping last night, they had a backstage segment together and Nigel attacked Angle. Don't know the details, but that's basically what happened.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

There are several reason it's been booked:

Russo loves Nigel.
AJ vs. Angle is the long-term program and Russo actually doesn't wanna rush it.
Angle vs. Nigel is the short-term program prior to AJ vs. Angle, and it is being done to actually please the smarks. For once, Russo does something for us that we actually want.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well if Russo is trying to do a PPV to make smarks happy then Nigel/Angle, Styles/Joe/Daniels and MCMG getting a tag title shot is a pretty great start to doing so.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm digging the fuck out of Styles/Joe/Daniels, but it makes no sense at all. Daniels is wrestling X Division and opening up Bound For Glory and Joe just lost to Lashley so why the fuck are they getting title shots? Judging the by spoilers, it was basically just "here's a title shot". I'd have less of a problem if they actually did something.
