Wow, i'm actually tempted to watch a TNA show. Haven't watched a full show since Johnny Devine won the x title.

Heard good stuff about Genesis too.

Johnny Devine

Yeah there wasn't even anything 'bad' on Genesis. It was an enjoyable show, with a few really good matches. Abyss/Bully Ray was hella entertaining.

SmackDown -- 1/13/12
Daniel Bryan (c) vs. The Big Show
***1/2

One of my favorite TV matches of the year thus far. Not really wrestling-heavy, but it told a fine story and both Bryan and Show more than played their parts. For a modern no DQ match, it featured a HELL of a lot of chair shots, probably the most I've seen since Austin's insane barrage on Lita and the Hardys a decade ago. I loved how even after Bryan hit Show with the chair like, 15, 20 times, Show still fought back and looked strong. Bryan played the underdog/douche heel to perfection, and Show's reaction after knocking out AJ was nicely done. WWE doesn't normally do these David vs. Goliath matches too often, or too well, but last night's match definitely was above-average and entertaining, and it showed that Bryan is capable of being more than the submission specialist WWE had him pegged to be from his debut. Great character work and story. It's fun to see a different kind of champion -- one who isn't the top dog or leader of the pack, and won't win cleanly or overpower their challenger. Bryan is scraping by, but doing so intelligently and more importantly, entertainingly. He has all the tools to be a great heel: A lack of size, precedent (Cole never believing in him and Bryan proving Cole correct by gathering cheap wins), skill, etc.

Like the Bryan/Henry cage match, this one wasn't heavy on the wrestling, but it was a fun, well-booked, smartly conducted main event with a big, title match feel to it. Matches like these mean so much more when it's the little guy wearing the title.

I wasn't properly into Storm/Angle but the Hardy/Roode match was quite easily *** 3/4 and then some. You may find the ending a little flat but, imo, it was actually quite an intelligently booked angle and the best way for the feud to progress. I don't want to write past the gist of the angle quite yet, in case of spoilering you, but I'll gladly discuss it in PM when you've seen it if you didn't like it.

The episode took quite a bit of time to get going (and was incredibly advertising heavy) but throw in those matches and a really fun ODB/Winter match with general Eric Young antics and you've got one of the better TV shows that will probably come out this year.

I think I may just be able to enjoy mainstream wrestling for two days on the trot.

Entertaining sure, but nothing compared to what people had me thinking it would be. I dunno, I generally seem to love a PPV others hate so I'm guessing the opposite must also be true. The entire PPV was completely skippable. The following Impact had much better matches.

As for the AJPW Daisuke Sekimoto Vs Suwama match all I can say is wow. There really isn't anything to be said that hasn't been said before. I think I may just have a new favourite Japanese wrestler.
**** 1/4+
Yep, but The DVD was released in 2012. is it count?

The 2011 thread is still open, anyway, seeing how much you enjoyed the main event.

Anyway, I see the Meltzer star ratings for Genesis are out with Abyss Vs Bully Ray coming in at a whopping one star! He is such a troll. Even I wasn't as much a fan of it as others seem to be but even compared to how I feel that's a complete joke (I had it as ***1/4 and MotN).

To each their own, I suppose...

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.

I wouldn't listen to a word Meltzer says . I don't think anyone takes him serious anymore. Abyss vs Bully Ray exceeded my expectations by far. Some nice spots, a super hot crowd and wasn't as sloppy as I expected. Probably was MOTN to be honest.

Anyway , just watched Daisuke Sekimoto vs Suwama AJPW; 2012/01/02
Holy fuck this was awesome. I've said it before I'm not a big fan of heavyweight puro matches these days but I obviously haven't been watching enough of Sekimoto( and Suwama for that matter). I've only seen Sekimoto a hand full of times . I watched a few of his BJW tags and seen him against Generico in wXw and Kota Ibushi in DDT . The man is my favourite heavyweight by far at the moment.

The match its self was excellent, some great psychology. Suwama taking out Sekimoto's back with an excellent workover to take away Sekimoto's powerhouse game was great. Sekimoto's comeback was immense too.My jaw drops everytime he hits the deadlift german. I won't go into detail and ruin anyone of the comeback spots but all I'll say is watch this match.

****1/4+ great stuff.

I'm going watching Show vs Bryan from Smackdown now. I love this storyline and Bryan is pure gold in his current role. Hopefully Show/Bryan/Henry happens at the Rumble. I would of laughed this time last year if I said I was looking foward to a Show/Henry/Bryan title match as much as I am.
