Re: So...AJ vs Magnus

I honestly don't know whether to be infuriated beyond belief or laughing my ass off.

Re: So...AJ vs Magnus

Move over Kennel from Hell, we have a new worst match in wrestling history. I mean even then the two people booked to compete in the match actually did moves on each other...

It wasn't a classic match but it wasn't supposed to be.
They could have done the same thing but had them wrestle a good 15 minute match with just the two of them before the heels run down to make the save for Magnus, and then not have AJ beat Magnus along with 10 other guys. They could have just had the heels run down, AJ and Sting fight them off for a minute, but the numbers are too much, and they lay out AJ in order for Magnus to make the pin. Not only did the way they did it tonight make Magnus look weak but it also looked unrealistic as crap with the way that AJ and Sting kept fighting back while half of the heels stood around and watched.

AJ looks like a beast, but he's no longer with the company. Magnus looks like a non-wrestler.

WCW trainwreck era springs to mind. Sting is now the only upcoming babyface. Sometimes you have to just let the wrestling to the talking.

A 15-20 match with Magnus youth giving him the edge over Styles, would've been far more beneficial. Then you could launch a new era, with Magnus legit as hell.
They made all the heels looking like bozos. At the same time, put enormous heat on them. Wich may or may not work. If you're supposed to hate Magnus, now people will really see him in a bad light, the ultimate paper champ. Worse than Jeff Jarrett.

At the same time, AJ, Sting and Angle looked strong. I also think Roode come off good in this.

Re: So...AJ vs Magnus

This match made CM Punk vs Triple H from 2011 look like match of the year.

You don't book a guy the size of Magnus, as a spud style champ. He's a real big guy, its unrealistic.

Sure he's got some heat, but not the heat that sells tickets. The same heat Arquette got, or the fingerpoke got.

Mayorga on BJ: Real men fight- maricons roll on ground and wrestle. Boxeo is número UNO! Tell BJ to box me- after I KO him, I will put him not in a body bag but in a condom so he can think that’s where he shud have stayed

Mayorga on facing Vargas: I'm going to give Vargas the chance to cash his last paycheck. I would like to say publicly that Fatty Vargas has always feared me. I conceded to take this fight at 162 pounds because fatty couldn't lose any more weight. I will do Vargas a favor by retiring him in this fight so his family doesn't have to suffer every time he steps in the ring. I'm going to do his wife a favor and not let her cry anymore.

So the only ones looking good at the end of this match besides Roode are a guy who may not be with the company anymore, a guy who is 2 months away from being 55, and a 45 year old wrestler who was already thought of as one of the top guys in the business? Great job TNA.

Great heels like Flair could cheat their asses off but still look strong at the same time. Magnus looked so weak that it may as well have been you or me out there.

Re: So...AJ vs Magnus

Great match. Only way I see them topping it is if they sign Richards and have him wrestle Angle.
