Well, that was a laugh and a half. Streamed it, heavens forbid I'd ever pay to watch TNA, but still, here are my thoughts.
Joe vs Magnus served as a painful reminder as to why Joe should be around the World title, not an insignificant 'feud' voer an insignificant title.
This Eric Young nonsense is a disgrace. The fall of the KO division has finally happened, and now it's losing track to the Divas. Terrible, terrible match and a terrible, terrible storyline.
RVD sandbags his way to another victory. Oh joy, more Van Dam with the X title. Joyous. Joey Ryan is an abysmal 'talent' and pushing him is a bad idea.
Gallows vs Abyss was mildy entertaining, but still didn't offer much else to hook into the developments of the story.
Tag title match, well, see the KO related post. 2 years ago TNA had one of the best tag divisions in pro wrestling. Now it's just pandering to Chavo Guerrero and giving Hernandez his 50th tag push. Weak match, and a pathetic outcome.
Triple threat was a waste of time. More emo AJ for the next year. That'll bring in the ratings for sure. The Beer Money flashbacks were good, I guess, but still, nothing special.
at Angle and Devon's match. They're pushing this biker group as major players, and Devon loses like a bitch. Absolutely no point to this match whatsoever. Shame we didn't see any moonsaults or 10-germans.
And the ladder match. Wow. What a spotfest that accomplished nothing, other than reaffirming the notion that Hardy is nothing but a glorified spot monkey who needs to take huge bumps to make his matches noteworthy. The fact this drugged up loser gets to reign further as champion is a blemish to the promotion moving forward.
Overall, aside from perhaps 2 matches, this whole show was skippable. Zero storyline progression, zero big time matches, zero point for some of the matches. Perhaps next month they can try and muster something better, but who knows these days.
$20 says they leave all the big stuff for the weekly TV, and then wonder why their PPV buys are down.
