Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

Overall, I thought the show came off well. The larger crowd certainly helped with that and it made TNA look bigger than they usually do. The matches were mostly OK. The Park stuff was cool, Magnus' return & bout with Devon was solidly done, and the Cage match was pretty good I thought. and they kept the wacky storyline stuff to a minimum and mostly just got to the point. I wouldn't call Brisco & Bischoff being Aces & Eights members a huge deal, but at least something happened.

It was a solid show and an indicator of what TNA can do when they are infront of a more energized crowd.

I started watching again around September, and this is the best show I have seen so far since I stopped watching in 2010. Wouldn't have minded an X-Division match or even Kenny King or Zema Ion hyping up their feud...

Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

A few random thoughts...

Kaz and Daniels - now that's the way to start the show. Absolute TV gold - as always.

Magnus looks like he's been hitting the gym more and also more fluid in the ring, too. Hopefully a push coming soon.

Aries is just so over everywhere he goes.

Not a Chavo fan but he hung with Aries, which is no small feat, and they both put on a good match. Kudos to them both.

Park... Man, you've got to love how he can make it look like he doesn't know what he's doing and yet in reality still wrestle safely. That's a real skill. He even looks inept in still photos. Brilliant wrestling and acting.

Anderson should stick to ring-gear that covers him up more. Looked much less out of shape in jeans and T shirt.

Overall a well above average show in itself, that was drastically improved by 1) a huge crowd and 2) a crowd that gives a shit. I know it shouldn't make a difference to the viewing experience, but it so does....

Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

The best thing about Impact last night (other than the usual suspects) was definitely the crowd. What a difference it makes to be out of the Impact Zone. When TNA are on the road they actually look like a legit wrestling promotion. Instead of some goofy Theme Park side-show attraction. Glad to hear they're going back on the road. Let's hope it sticks.

Nothing hugely special stuck out, other than the greatness of Aries/Roode/Daniels/Kaz/Bully/Park. I'm glad that they finally revealed Bischoff/Brisco, but yeah... I don't care. At all.

I can't remember the last time I liked a babyface as much as PARK (probably Bryan or Generico)

If Abyss ever comes back.

Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

It was a very good show obviously lifted by the crowd. It wasn't the best Impact ever though

What if WCW won the Monday Night Wars?

Here's what I think would have happened: http://inthesquaredcircle.blogspot.c...ight-wars.html

I agree with this. There have been far better Impacts for me as far as content and action, but the crowd and the set up were far better. Just got to see the parts I missed, and I have to say that Aries vs Chavo and Joseph Park vs (ugh-->) Robbie E were my favorite parts. And I realized that was my first Robbie E match I've ever watched because I usually skip him as much as possible. Rob Terry was looking very good; I love his hair. It was good how Roode was able to speak without tripping all over his words this time; made me imagine him backstage practicing. Bad Influence were interesting too. Daniels kills me whenever he dances.

Looking forward to next week! Hopefully I get the time right this time.

Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

Magnus Vs. Devon was ok, Magnus looked improved, but way too many clotheslines

Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

I AM FUCKING SHOCKED. AMAZED. GOB SMACKED.

Robbie E had a good match.

Though I'm sure ANYONE could have a good match at the very least against the AWESOME Joseph Park. Guy is seriously the absolute best thing in TNA right now, and even more amazing is that he's been consistently awesome for nearly a year now since he first showed up. TNA have kept something not just good but AWESOME for close to a year now. That's fucking impressive, and not just for TNA, but wrestling in general. JOSEPH FUCKING PARK.

Kaz & Daniels were great too. Loved their promo at the start of the show.

Re: 1/31 IMPACT Wrestling from England with OPEN FIGHT NIGHT!

Overall a decent show. Magnus returning in the UK was nice to see. Though I would have preferred a match with Daniels which at first I assumed they were going with. Devon's horrible. I'm enjoying Roode/Aries but am concerned about main event heels if those two are going for the tag straps. Joesph Park is an amazing babyface. Chavo vs Aries was great. Don't care about the Bully Ray story going on. Mixed tag was decent. Main event was fun but can't say I give a shit about Brisco and Bishoff being A&8. The whole angle has been turned to shit.
