I really, really enjoyed this weeks Impact Wrestling.
The crowd reaction to the Taz swerve was brilliant - especially that girl with the glasses and Jeff Hardy T-shirt going "WHAT?? WHAT??? WHAT??"
(if you didn't notice you should rewatch it..)
It was fantastic wasn't it! I thought TNA was getting a bit stale then BAM! they hit you from the side with a shocker like that, I loved it. Breathed new life into the whole show.
I wonder who the other non-obvious members of Aces & 8s are?
Did anyone else think that Hardy kicking out of Aries finisher at Genesis was totally lame and unbelievable? Shouldn't have happened.
