mj2 TNA/IMPACT. Whats up?

So i was just listening to WON and meltzer and alvarez were talking about how much wrestling there is these days.
Then they said that they might not have time to watch it all and mentioned companies like NJPW, WWE, AEW plus some other indy promotions.
Then after a few minutes i couldnt help but notice that they didnt mention TNA/IMPACT. That just made me feel kinda sad.


SO whats going on with TNA, anybody watch em anymore? i know i havent in ages.

Re: TNA/IMPACT. Whats up?

I hear they're doing pretty well these days. I still can't bring myself to watch though. Not with Josh Matthews on commentary. I'd take a 3 man team of byron Saxton, Alex marvez and renee young over Josh. Any day of the damn week

Re: TNA/IMPACT. Whats up?

The thing about Impact is that they were shuffled around so much these last couple of years I couldn't tell you what channel they're on or even what time they're on. I think there was a point where they were streaming on Twitch as well. So they have become forgotten which is too bad as it sounded like the right people were put in charge and they do have talent on their roster.

Re: TNA/IMPACT. Whats up?

Re: TNA/IMPACT. Whats up?

Impact has been consistently entertaining... in fact I’d say its the most entertaining North American wrestling program out right now (keep in mind AEW is excluded from the conversation due to the lack of a weekly program).

Impact’s main issue is locking down their roster. Theres alot of shuffling and that makes it somewhat hard to invest in some guys knowing they’ll be gone in like a year. If Impact could maintain its roster, the North American wrestling scene would quite interesting with WWE, AEW, and MLW all being viable wrestling programs to watch. I cant speak for international wrestling but obviously NJPW is putting out entertaining content but I think the once booming British wrestling scene has been effectively stomped out by WWE via NXT UK.

Overall, people would probably be quite entertained if they took a chance and watch a few episodes of Impact

Re: TNA/IMPACT. Whats up?

They do have decent storylines, but their presentation and camera angles need improvement. It always sucks to hear that a good wrestler demands his release every few months from Impact as you can see the change in the storylines because of it, totally ruins momentum, and then the wrestlers who demanded be released act as if they are surprised by the revelation or leak even though it actually was their own request. Commentary with Don and Josh is decent. I have no idea why they keep jumping from network to network as that pisses off their U.S customers. They are on Fight Network in Canada which is actually a good channel even if they own it. Basically, they are stuck in potential mode.

I believe it part of the Channel 5 selection of channels. Which would put it as lower quality than the babe station channels!
