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.

I give credit where credit is due. And I'm a TNA fan, so it shouldn't surprise you that much. Last week sucked and I pointed it out, this week was great, so why should I bash this episode? No reason to do so.

This is what the we need is unbiased fans who don't have their heads up tna's ass and ones who are critical when needed, like me.

These are my thoughts exactly. Great summary man!

This is what a wrestling show should be each week. The BFG matches were an absolute pleasure to watch. All solid outings this time around.

What I also enjoyed is that there weren't any screw-job finishes. I'm glad Russo is gone for this reason. Everyone won/lost like competitors gunning for the top prize in TNA. I really like that.

If TNA does it right, BFG might be one of the best PPVs in forever. There's a lot of great matches that may happen. I'm very excited for the coming weeks to say the least!

You guys are paying too much attention to who lower rank prospects are in the group. The identity of the guy who did that doesn't matter. The main thing you should be paying attention to is why he put his mask on AFTER he got in the ring. Perhaps one the leader of A8's was in attendance and you can't be without a mask as a prospect.

And once again, the A8's leave the ring when Bully Ray comes in.

It obviously isn't a Young Buck, unfortunately.

TNA needs to find a way to get them back. I think Young Bucks and Benjamin/Haas was instantly fix the funk that the tag division has been in lately. Who doesn't want to see Young Bucks vs. Daniels/Kaz. Would be awesome!

Tonight was fantastic as usual which is a refreshing thing to say about TNA and wrestling in general nowadays.

Aries being the face of the show is really being used, Aces & 8s is being given proper time but not taking away time or importance from the BFG series which continues to deliver the best TV matches in wrestling this year, Hogan/Sting backstage is beyond entertaining along with Daniels/Kaz, more mystery within the Aces & 8s fraction and it's been going on for weeks now while still progressing. I'm glad we saw on LIVE tv Kris Lowe sucked and was straight up awful and they didn't beat around the bush to call out the same things we saw and bluntly said "No. Time to wake up and get over that dream, bro" which quite honestly is real and also showed his backstory wasn't going to get him in the business which quite honestly, alot of wrestlers need to realize.

People are very critical of Gutcheck and TNA as a company but they would be SURPRISED at the wrestlers who are really good and have a good name in the Indies who want that opportunity. Then, adding Joey Ryan's segment continues a slow evolving angle which comes off legit as well because quite honestly, if it were real. He wouldn't be allowed to be in the building each time, he sneaks in when people don't expect it which quite honestly goes against all logic in wrestling storylines today.

It's the little things that matter and TNA is paying attention to detail along with cleaning up their storylines.

Perfect booking, perfect in-ring action, side comedy, etc. Best product in wrestling by far today and tomorrow.

I seriously question why I continue to watch on Monday nights when a quality and entertaining wrestling program is being delivered every Thursday.

Like people are pointing out TNA is very good when it comes to little details, small comments, praising Aries, the camera angle on the mystery guy so we got his face, but still cant pin-point his identity.

Everything just seems to fit on the show, even the corny segement with ODB and EY was funny as hell. Seeing him walking out all suited up carrying the chicken she had been asking for, and she actually ate a piece LOL

Angle/Hardy best match of the night no doubt, great and I'm happy to see Hardy still in the series. Looking forward to Angle and AJ pairing up again.

Glad Kris got no's across the board, that sympathy card doesnt always work. As sad as it was to hear that didnt distract us from his shitty performance. Glad he's gone, seeing Ryan return was fun too.

Seeing Joseph Parks added to the Aces and Eights story is good as I still believe he has something to do with it.

I'm excited for next week.
