LMAO people are so predictable on this forum. This is my first time viewing this thread since the show ended and all the people who I expected to whine and bitch are doing exactly what I thought they where going to do.

To be fair though, the show did suck but I liked the ending. You can whine and moan about how much fuckery went on in the match but at the end of the day it was entertaining. Great job TNA. Entertaining the real fans and making the fangirls cry.

Re: 1/9 Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread - Styles vs Magnus, RUN IN VS RUN IN!

I think the rating had to do with two things-- no football and perfect timing for AJ's return. The narrative on the web for weeks has been that AJ Styles is with ROH now, and then he is suddenly back on TNA television.

The only way this could have worked out better is if the WWE had scooped him up and debuted him on RAW before these taping aired.

I don't expect so many people will tune in again next week following the retardation they saw upon watching on Thursday.

"EGO comes out to help Magnus DESPITE BURYING HIM FOR A FULL MONTH BEFORE BFG."

No end to the badness in that main event.

The worst part was that Roode had to put AJ away for Magnus. They put Magnus so far under in that match that he is now part of the foundations of Universal Studios.

To what long term damage? They are repeating their legacy mistakes here.

I agree with this statement.

Enjoyed the show it wasn't the strongest of the last few weeks for sure but i think it sets things up for a freshen up in the next few weeks.

I wish Magnus had gone a little more offense on before then run ins started. I found the main event entertaining but there was no reason really not to start off the match as a normal 1 on 1 with a bit of back and forth. That being said it shows the lengths Dixie would go to to get what she wants.

Some will say Magnus looked weak and i agree. I was suprised considering last week he came across as someone who, although working with Dixie would also be his own man. This week he had completely bought into the plan that AJ would be taken out from the start of the match. Its a bit confusing as to what kind of heel he is going to be. That aside i think the UK tour is an opportunity to establish him properly in whatever character he is going to have. The fact is with the 6 tapings that are going to be occurring he is going to get a great reaction coming back to the UK as the champion and i think this will take the edge of whatever harm may have come from the booking this week.

Think Genesis will be the end of the current direction and will give the company the chance to set things up with a cleanish slate moving forward in the next few weeks.

He outshone Magnus in that.
Because it wasn't acting, he spoke his true feelings about Dixie. just like his awesome promo on Bischoff back in the Fourtune days.

Wrestling is all about entertaining!
And to me this was entertaining.. The chaotic booking made a lot of sense and Dixie knew she has to do everything possible to stop AJ Styles.

Dixieland is supposed to end up in a real chaos... The atmosphere of the shows has to feel like a "Batman" movie. With all the villains ruling the place, corruption everywhere..

TNA should not fuck this one up. I hope to see the heroes strike back real soon....

Was there football last week? No so how the rating do then? How about in July/August? I swear...

I was more pissed off at the handicapped cage match than the main event. At least the match made sense. Dixie did everything in her power to make sure he didn't walk out the company as undisputed champ and it worked. It was also entertaining, something a certain other company fails to do often.
