First show of the new year. Hopefully they kick it off right with a bang. They have quite a few things planned as you can see in the official preview. I'm looking forward to most of it. Sting's returned so many times in the last few years but I can't help but mark out when he appears because I've been a fan of his for so long. However, I am not all that intrigued in his feud with Aces & 8s although that beatdown DOC gave him with a hammer looked brutal. I am looking forward to build between Hardy/Aries/Roode to continue heading toward Genesis. And of course more DANIELS & KAZ!
Oh, Kurt please don't die doing some insane spot in the cage match!
Kurt is going to swerve all of you by doing a dropkick from the roof of the building.
The reason why we don't get new fresh ideas and promotions rising in Pro Wrestling is because the majority of the community is happy with the same old shit and will reject any chance of change. There is a risk in doing new things, 9/10 that leads of 50+ pages of bitching and moaning.
Why is the word "SWERVE" all I can think about when I see the cage match on the card? Probably be something stupid like Anderson turns on Aces & Eights already but then Sting shows up and turns on TNA and joins Aces & Eights or some bullshit. Please surprise me TNA and DON'T GIVE ME ANY "SURPRISES". Have the cage match, bring Anderson and the rest of A&8 in at the end for a beatdown on Angle and Joe. Cue Sting return to make the save, hits some people with his bat, "main" A&8 guys like Devon and Anderson (now you see why I put "main" in quotation makes ) escape unharmed leaving Sting with something to do in the next few weeks likely leading up to some PPV match.
The whole thing isn't ideal because Sting sucks, Devon sucks, Anderson sucks, the whole A&8 angle has been sucking bad for a couple of months now... but the alternative with SWERVE~! galore is even worse.
Come on TNA. Start 2013 off better than 2012 ended.
