Impact Wrestling 08/30 Review

Opening Segment - Good start to the show, with Hogan and Sting receiving massive pops. The Bane like character is pretty interesting, and I'm wondering if it might be Samoa Joe or Bully Ray, as he does seem to be quite large. TNA might be throwing a spanner in the works to put everyone off. Whatever they are doing, they are fooling everyone and I hope the reveal is worthwhile. My only gripe with the segment was the very generic promo of Austin Aries. I like the way he goes about things on the stick, but being a face is holding his character back in my opinion. That tweener role was where he really shined but I'm happy to let it go for this week. Thumbs in the middle

James Storm vs RVD - Good match from these two, and some nice booking making RVD look like a total schmuck. His pointing lately has been getting him in a heap of trouble during his matches and I suspect he may be turning heel in the near future. I hope so as his character is quite stale and could do with a change. Storm seems to be getting better working singles matches at a longer duration and should have no problems putting on a good match with Roode at BFG. **1/2

Madison Rayne vs ODB - ODB squash which was fine but the post match events were awesome. Eric Young getting naked while ODB eats chicken and drinks beer. Oh, and that kick up! Fun segment which didnt receive as much reaction as I thought. Thumbs in the middle

Daniels and Kaz backstage - HILARIOUS! Daniels call Sting Heath, and loses his appletini in another great segment for the WTTCOTW. What I gathered most from this segment though is Kaz and Daniels are probably going to lose the titles in the near future to free up Daniels to finish the feud with AJ. I hope this isn't the case, as another AJ/Angle and Kaz/Daniels tag team match at BFG would be awesome. Thumbs up

Samoa Joe vs AJ Styles - Not the greatest match from these two but I absolutely loved the storyline. AJ needs the submission win, so continues to go for the arm bar on the injured Joe, which played into the finish magnificently. If these two were given more time, I suspect it would have been great. **1/2

Gut Check Judgement - Why does Bruce Pritchard continue to get boo'd? Also, "GUTTTCHHECCKKKKK!" Thank god Chris didn't get on the roster, as he was super poor in the ring and the way he answered the questions before hand, he seems so vanilla. More vanilla than Steve Blackman. We are then greeted with Joey Ryan, who throws a drink in Al Snow's face before taking the longroad outta there. Thumbs up for Ryan, Thumbs down for Lewie. Thumbs in the middle

Kurt Angle vs Jeff Hardy - This was OK. Nothing we havent seen before but Kurt is living off dangerously close two counts to add drama to his matches lately. Same routine match after match. He used to use his opponents finishers in the WWE so I wouldn't mind seeing him resort to that as an added way of creating drama. **3/4

Final Segment - This was pretty cool, but we saw it last week and it didn't have the same sort of effect this time around. Aries is again left laying after a flapjack shot. Not sure who did it, but I hope it wasn't a mistake in regards to him forgetting to put his mask on. Thumbs down

Final Thoughts: Good episode, although I found last weeks episode a heap more fun. Average to good matches this week, some solid backstage segments and storyline progression with A&8's, Daniels/AJ and the BFGS makes this the best show going around at the moment. 7/10

Well, great show yet again! They're on a real roll.

Three great matches (or two great matches and a very good match). EY back on my telly box. Joey Ryan feud building nicely - once the guy is officially on the roster I think he'll be great. Developments with the Aces and 8s.

What's not to like?

But I would like to repeat what a few others said while the show was on. They're using Hogan and Sting perfectly now. I've never been a Hogan fan, but since becoming GM he has been fantastic - he's been giving props to all the right guys. His segments have been well-timed (long enough to savour the pop, not so long that it eats up air-time). And his actual work has been great, too. In fact of the whole show my favourite segment (other than the AJ/Joe match and Hardy/Angle match) was the Kazaniels/Sting/Hulk segment. Less than a minute long but all four guys got some nice one-liners in AND it foreshadowed a future match. THAT is how you do backstage segments!

are these guys still knockout tag champs
Yeah it's pretty damn funny to read his commonts about the show.

The show was pretty ok this week imo. Storm vs RVD and Joe vs Styles were both good, the ME was better. I became a fan of Hardy again after six years because TNA aren't pushing him to the moon and giving him good matches. Else was pretty meh for me because i really don't like the A&E storyline and if their leader is FUCKING D'-Brown so man.. this is more stupid than i thought.

That said, as much as I enjoyed the show, I kind of hope they drop Gut Check once the Joey Ryan thing is done. Or at least, I hope they keep it to house shows and maybe only do it once every couple of months (and have the decision in the same show).

While tonight was great because we all knew Joey Ryan would be there, once this storyline is over I think I'll just find it galling to have these guys eating up time that could be used building the tag and X-Divisions.

I love the Open Fight Night concept, though. And I like the way they could fit the OFN concept in seamlessly with the BFG series, too.

EDITED TO ADD: Just remembered that they recently announced Gut Check UK. Damn, that probably means the concept is here for a while....

I thought it was a really good show. EY/ODB being back on TV was refreshing and great to see and seeing ODB win a match was good too. AJ/Joe was a great TV match and I enjoyed the hell out of it. And seeing Aries get bitched out for a second week in a row made my night for me.

TNA went with the smarks opinion and decided to put a guy on gut check to get a NO. Result? wasted television time with joey ryan saving it a bit.

Did the concept get more prestige with it? also NO.
