Re: August 30th Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread
Everyone should seriously ask themselves why to sit through RAW when you can get an amusing show like this. Last week was underwhelming at best, this week was one of the best episodes in recent weeks and a good one for sure.
All BfG Series matches where at least good for a TV show. Well, Angle and AJ losing pretty much shocked me, but it's still Samoa Joe and Jeff Hardy who got over, I can live with that. The presentation of the final five with little fireworks was nice as well.
TNA presented their champion as a big deal and not as a corporate goon like last week. Aries looked strong and held a great opening promo. The Aces and Eights angle is still intriguing and has my attention.
The little backstage skit with Hogan, Sting and #WTTCOTW was absolutely awesome and some really funny shit. Sting's lines were hilarious. They had no time this week to build up the tag team division, so they did it that way. It should be Chavo and Super Mex, but let's wait and see. And a big thumbsup for Joseph Park now investigating the Aces and Eights stuff.
ODB squashing Madison Rayne was exactly the way to go. Rayne sells her character very well, but she should just not be one of the top contenders. ODB is the much better wrestler and she deserves a shot sooner or later. She had her last chance for gold in 2010 (not counting the Rayne Open Challenge, where she also squashed Alissa Flash and Roxxi) and it's about time, though Tara will be the one at No Surrender.
Thank god they rejected the crappy Gut Check who impressed absolutely nobody. Joey Ryan showed up again, but they seriously need to hurry up with getting him on the roster.
