Agree completely. It doesn't mean that there aren't other wrestlers who can go toe to toe with him and surpass him on certain nights. But because he IS the one holding the title they are going after, kayfabe wise he is the best right now and should be acknowledged as thus. He's the MAN right now until someone takes the belt away from him. But with WWE, "being John Cena" is more valuable than the WHC and WWE championship put together.

All I can do is picture Bully ambushing some guy with a stack of pancakes.

Which is pretty damn funny.

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.
Who woulda thought we would point to TNA this year and go "this is how you do wrestling!"... just, what a turn around. Can't wait for Thursdays now. And you're right about the little things... sure they have gotten the big angles and things right, but even the small little details are clicking right now.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

New finish.

The best part is that he sometimes does a flapjack into a Bubba Cutter (or whatever he calls it).

Re: August 30th Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

worst part of impact - no robbie E



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.

Re: August 30th Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

great show overall

Pros:
ODB and EY
Kaz and Daniels
Joey Ryan
great match with Storm and RVD
great match with Angle and Hardy

CON:
no Robbie E

overall a great show, and the guy that hit Aires was one of the Young Bucks aka GenMe, You can clearly see it was from the replay and pausing of the DVR.

Re: August 30th Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

If they actually have mostly disgruntled wrestlers that left or were fired... damn, that would be some monumental work against the internet if guys like the Young Bucks, Morgan, and such are part of this. Damn damn damn... why can't next thursday come quicker!

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
