Re: August 30th Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

Are you sure Bully is saying flapjack and not slapjack? A slapjack would make sense since that's actually a weapon.

Anywho, great show. Very good TV matches, I like that they played up the final 5 as a huge deal, they're pushing BFG so highly that it makes you want to see it now 2 months in advance, and I really like this Aces and Eights angle. They're really taking it somewhat slow. In OTHER pro wrestling companies we'd have figured out who it was by week 2. In this case its been a few months and we still haven't got a clue a) who these guys are and b) who is behind them attacking the roster. Each week the story gets a little bit clearer. I especially like that people in this thread are all speculating who is behind it and yet no one knows for sure, since there are several paths they could take and all would make complete sense. Really, really well done-TNA has the audience guessing and wanting to see more, the crowds are great in the Impact Zone, it feels like a hot product.

And notice how Hogan said "our best is in the ring right now." Just little things like that, calling Aries the best because he's the champion, it does so much to elevate and establish the product. That's what the Heavyweight title symbolizes-that you're the best. WWE for some reason can't even get that right. Punk is allegedly the best, yet never main events a PPV and not even the fucking announcers will call him the best because he's not Cena. Even a little rub like that from Hogan means a lot in the casual fans' mind. Almighty Hulk Hogan says that the best of them is Austin Aries, there is legitimacy to that.

Great job, TNA. You guys have turned things around and you deserve much respect.

My first thought when I saw the guy with the flapjack was Max Buck.

3 quality matches in 2 hours is a fantastic ratio, in my book...

I'm honestly still thinking this as well, which would make sense if Aces & Eights are disenfranchised former employees or guys who can't get in (like Masters).

But flapjack is funnier!

And who are you to doubt Bully Ray's ability to create new names for pre-existing weapons?!

Oh and I almost forgot-Daniels and Kaz were gold in their small segment. Sting scares Daniels so he spills his drink, and he backs away and mutters "...that was a good appletini."
