Angle busting through the door in a chefs jacket, was the highlight of the evening.

What, no tip?


Liked the show. Traci is as bouncy as ever. No Mickie makes me sad. Flair was no suprise. The Knockout match was good. Anderson = Badass

i think its clear that when they actually tell people the big matches for the following show in advance, the ratings are always better. they couldnt really do that for this show because it would give away the PPV Main Event, so they should have delayed RVD/Hardy.

TNA can't hold there numbers because the show (2 me) is boring and stale , I missed 80% of last night's show b/c I didn't feel like watching. TNA needs to change the production,energy and flow in the show to make it fresh and appealing.

I was really surprised how well Anderson responded to the harsh transitional/keeping it warm for Hardy reign he was given, I think it's time to throw all the eggs in his basket and have a proper Anderson v Authority storyline. By that I mean expand on what Bischoff said tonight and have Spike TV try and get rid of him via censorship and then finally by taking him off the air completely, the fans will eat it up and he'll get over BIGTIME if written well, it's how Stone Cold became one of the greatest ever - no reason why it can't be tried again to see how big they can make Anderson. (in TNA terms)

^What's the point in telling everyone the surprise will be in the last few minutes? Alright it's a given that the later part of the show is when things get revealed. However surely their will be people thinking "oh ill just tune in the last five minutes, screw the rest".

This week's Challenge fuck-up: The announcer's audio is too quiet while everything else is loud.
Maybe it was just me but the show looked to be in widescreen that was too wide for my screen.

The show was okay overall. It was greatly improved by the second half after a very bad first half which was typically Russo, with a Knockouts brawl on the outside taking the focus off a match going on inside the ring, a weird, nonsensical Pope/Joe segment and a crappy two minute X-Division match which paid more attention to valets than the title itself.

The second half was good though. The Winter/BP angle is one of the best things about the company at the moment, Winter picking up scissors to attack Velvet just before Angelina came in was great, reminded me of something from a Hitchcock film. She's got the potential to be great character. AJ/Hardy was decent although a little short but I'm glad Flair turned on AJ as Fortune need to stay a young group, while the main event was good despite it being a little strange for them to give away something they've built for so long just like that.

The Anderson stuff, such as the segment with Bischoff was good too and I'm glad they referenced the fact that the former Champions should get his shot before anyone else. If this Anderson versus The Network thing is gonna be a long running angle, I'm looking forward to it. They're trying to make Anderson an anti-hero like Austin and he's got all the tools to do so I'm all for it. He needs to stand out rather than be a ripoff though.
