Re: Official Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread
In honor of tomorrow I am thankful for this thread as Pop has been slow to upload Impact to On Demand and I am behind. Just watched 2 weeks ago last night and tonight will try and watch last week.
I enjoyed that they gave more time for the matches. I sure hope this is a trend. If you have the talent to do it longer matches are more entertaining. I will take 3-4 long good matches over 5-6 shorter not as good ones. Also with a smaller roster this is better as less matches means you do not burn thru matchups as quick.
Speaking of burning thru things quick I sure hope they do not burn thru the LAX/OVE feud. A common chant heard these days is "fight forever" and I want that for these two groups. Not have them fight every week but some kind of match or at least backstage brawl every 2-3 weeks to draw it out without getting old. With 3 guys a side you have many one on one and tag team matchups. Seeing how the brothers got better and seemed more focused and vicious with arrival of Sami I wonder if the early booking is reason for them not being as good as expected. I thought it was them getting used to 6 sides and new competition, and that might be part of it, but it could be story line showing them growing in confidence with their "family" around them.
I really loved how they did intros for the GHC title match. They need to do that for title matches, at least World if not all, as it makes the belt and thus the match more important than other matches. Also was happy to see them shake hands and show respect after. Not every match needs to be face/heel with hatred after.
The Ali/KC match felt like old school 80's WWF television. I do not want that for all matches but once a week or every other would be cool.
After his brief appearance I am wondering if Jimmy Jacobs could be behind the Cult of Lee. I mean a cult sounds right up his alley. It would explain the sudden grouping of the three without a lot of explanation. Also why he was out for the X division match, doing some scouting.
