Re: Official 11/15 Impact Wrestling Discussion (No Spoilers)
I'm surprised by this show, which was one of the better Impacts lately. Storm losing his title shot legitimately shocked me, but I think he'll probably win it back before Final Resolution.
I have no problem with AJ VS Daniels happening again. Its always a good match and their series of matches never get old, although the storylines around the matches can and have.
It was a very pleasant surprise when ODB got eliminated from the battle royal and didn't get the title shot. Hopefully that means that feud from hell is finally over.
TNA needs to deliver this kind of show when they are live because the live shows have felt predictable lately and this one didn't. I think they should have unmasked the Aces and Eights member that tagged with Devon or pulled the trigger on the Garrett heel turn though.
One caveat: I normally watch the show live and watch the backstage pass during the commercials. Tonight, I watched the show on a delay and DVRed through the commercials like I used to do back when Impact was taped every week.
