Re: Official Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

Well, I think with it being Tessa & a PPV match, they'll let both go all out on what they can do vs each other. This isn't a "can she work? debut vs a misogynist heel" angle like Scarlett vs Gilbertti was, but rather, wrestlers they often dub best in the world on commentary having a match. Not to mention, most of the time Tessa is going hard with her matches on Impact vs anyone. If they try to pull the weaker sex gimmick and claim Callihan is disgusting for beating her up, then they've failed an easy scenario that is letting two great wrestlers work.

^Agree. Best intergender matches I've seen where on Lucha Underground where there was only 1 division and you had Taya & Ivelisse fighting the men (Sey Star to but wasn't a fan of her matches) and them trying to build them as competitive.

Tessa vs Sami can be epic if done as 2 of Impacts top star and leaving gender alone.

Re: Official Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

I wonder if they're gonna put the title on Tessa to get a TV deal. I mean it can work. And she's actually worthy.

World title? They should drop it to someone like Morrison then. Some wacky heel that can go in the ring. Cage will only make Tessa look bad with his clumsy bullshit + he's a face.

And Elgin is leagues above all of them so you should protect him over everyone else.

Re: Official Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

What a great main event feud between Cage and Elgin, if that last segment between the two of them was on wwe TV it would be ridiculously raved about, great booking of both guys and can't wait to see what the match between the two of them has install.

Sucks that they no longer have the Spike production or the IZ venue. They finally get rid of the old fucks + Russo and everything else crumbles. Life's unfair.

They kept Josh Matthews, so not all decision making has been for the better.

Re: Official Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread

I love the beatdown on Impact. Sami comes off like a complete bastard and a coward that you want to see get his ass kicked. And Tessa comes off like a fearless badass fighting against the odds. So you root for her all the more.

As long as she WINS in the end (be it at Slammiversary if it's a one-off match, or at the end of a longer feud), then this will have done it's job well.

That Tessa and Sami segment

The ending of this week's ep. too was great. Few weak points here and there, but solid episode this week for sure. Slammiversary should be good.

Josh Matthews is undoubtedly one of the most underrated guys in IMPACT. He's been there since early 2015 and has essentially become the company's backbone. People give him a lot of shit that's undeserving.
