Ha, yeah it kinda does. I like the idea of bringing in a bunch of outside guys for the specialty shows though. I don't know it's kinda cool to have the main storylines run through Impact and the main 4 ppvs. While the specialty shows will pretty much be straight up wrestling with a lot of outside names. The specialty programs feel separate from TNA like a sort of PWG-like extension of the company with shows mostly about tournaments and well...just wrestling rather than storylines and wrestling like Impact and the 4 main ppvs will be.


You know you remember this.

I sort of like it, they probably just saw PWG doing well and have somewhat stolen the concept.

I think the negative I'm looking at here is how it seems as if once these events end, the results that come from it won't matter much. Like they have all of this going on and it's on the backburner when compared next to what goes on TV and the 4 PPVs, well technically 3 since Genesis will be here soon, throughout the year.

From a wrestling standpoint this is fun. From a storyline or "should this stuff matter" kind of perspective, I'm not quite sure yet. I'll have to wait and see what is taped and more importantly what follows these events. Perhaps by April I'll be the guy who says - "wow these are awesome. I can't wait for more b/c they pump out some quality matches."

EDIT - Wouldn't shock me. They're clearly familiar with PWG with Joey Ryan on the roster & Brian Cage's appearance last night.

Tomorrow are the tapings for the X Division-themed X-Travaganza PPV and from what I can gather, there are several talents who have traveled to Orlando to be a part of the show. Among those wrestlers are TJ Perkins (aka Puma), Lince Dorado, Jigsaw (aka Rubix), and Scorpio Sky (aka Mason Andrews). We had also reported a few days ago that former TNA stars Petey Williams, Matt Bentley, Amazing Red, Jimmy Rave, and Jerry Lynn are all expected to appear on the show. More to come...

I dont get why people are confused.If you have been watching this company. All those other ppvs mean nothing.Just side crap storys or rushing out stories. Feud matches being done to many times on shit ppvs like victoray road. We want Impact wrestling for building these feuds and 4 is perfect to finish or start them in epic big match ups.

These One Night Only events are perfect.They are to add all the other excitement we want.Like x division tournaments. Bringing in talent all over the world is exciting. We will get to see special shows with the 6 sided ring again.

I think a lot of you have not seen the old weekly ppv days of this company. Thats when this kinda stuff happend all the time.It was pretty popular stuff.

12 is for matches so why have 12 a year be about feuds.Its to much. 7 for other amazing wrestling action.Rest for the story telling matches.

Might have a lot to do with Ryan being employed by TNA.

Also, a lot of the talent have been on PWG shows before (Daniels, Kaz, Aries, ect.). I'm excited to see some guys go for longer matches, especially the X-Division matches. I hope the ECW-esque PPV gets replaced with an actual tournament with maybe the Young Bucks returning.

Glad Jigsaw and Scorpio Sky will be a part of this.

Good to see Petey Williams, but I thought that about Sonjay Dutt.
They can use jack evans for free once the AAA talent on usa situation is finally over. And seriously, jonny storm?



The reason why we don't get fresh ideas and promotions rising in American 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 times out of 10, it leads to 50+ pages of bitching and moaning. While business gets turned into a dictatorship and more and more out of touch. Support the indies, support New Pro Wrestling.
