Everything Wrong with TNA Impact (and how it should have been) (in my mind) (03/08/12)

RECAP OF GARRETT FEUD (not enough Gunner)
Not enough Gunner, way too much Garrett. I’m dreading what tonight will entail. Gunner arrives in his jeep. He is different from anyone else. Little jeep, big sunglasses, a plaid hick shirt and giant sideburns, but with that being said I don’t want him in the role he’s in. Gunner however is awesome.

GUNNER, BISCHOFF & FLAIR PROMO (and glaring issues)
Flair’s music is played. Well a different and less dramatic version of his music. Anyone remember when Bischoff & Flair hated each other? Maybe it’s just me, but I think Gunner doesn’t need 2 white haired managers. He just needs one of them. Oh and wait where’s Chelsea? It doesn’t matter, she’s pretty useless. That’s like giving a one night escort a name. Flair is looking like a corpse over the past few years. 

So they set up a tag match with Gunner & Garrett. A high end wrestler throws his hat into the ring metaphorically. That elevates Gunner, but belittles the wrestler that appears. Hey if you want Garrett to look good, you put him in there with the best. So who is it? Kurt Angle who has gone on a tear about his kids over the past year or so he knows the value of a father being disrespected by his son.

STING BACKSTAGE w/ ERIC YOUNG
Wow the closeup made him look old. He is putting on his makeup and talking to a mirror. Eric Young appears. I think TNA knows how stupid Sting is, so they sent in Eric Young, their comedy guy. A match is set, Eric Young & ODB vs the tag champs. Not the TNA tag titles, the knockout tag titles. Sting goes back to giggling in the mirror.

KNOCKOUTS TAG TITLES >> ERIC YOUNG & ODB vs GAIL & RAYNE (surprisingly entertaining)
This match makes sense since ODB has had singles matches with Gail & Rayne and Eric has been in the background. Rayne & Kim look like tag partners since they have matching colors and that’s literally all it takes. Oh good a knockouts tag match with Eric Young. I fully expect Eric to lockup with the ref half a dozen times. Over the years Eric has really been the guy to work with the women… or not work with the women. 

ODB is still heavily over just like the previous 2 weeks. In fact she gets such a reaction from the crowd that she should be the world champion. Eric Young’s spots were actually good and entertaining this week. He wanted a bronco buster. He dodges run ins from the knockouts, a stacked airplane spin and complete with a falling rape pin attempt. 

ERIC YOUNG PROPOSAL to ODB
It’s a little early for that. What’s it the 3rd month of their tag team? Eh, whatever. They can have a long engagement. This is probably the sort of thing they should have KAZ & Traci Brooks do years ago. Crowd loved it.

JOSEPH PARK ARRIVES
He is here to look at management… He looks to be quite the character.

BULLY RAY BACKSTAGE
Not as entertaining. He’s putting on a serious face. 

AUSTINARIES BACKSTAGE
Austingets an email from Sting on what looks to be a blackberry. Sting wants Zema Ion vs Aries tonight. Aries questions Sting’s logic to have the match tonight. I smell a title change and a face turn for Aries.

X-DIVISION TITLE >> AUSTIN ARIES vs ZEMA ION (and the look)
I love Zema’s trashy look. Terrible tights, terrible afro and spraying that bottle make it an awesome look. Austin Aries is a gorgeous magician. It is all about the look. Great facial hair, he just needs a top hat and a wand. 

Good stall tactics by Aries celebrating around the ringside.  Puts a unique flair on him and this match has tons of flair from flashy moves to hairstyles. Even the hairspray looks awesome, because it’s covered with magazine beauty shots. I guess it’s a fair way to end a TV match, but this just means they should put a stipulation on their PPV match. Ladder match? Hairspray on a pole match? 

VELVET & JOSEPH PARKS
Mr. Parks is Abyss’s brother. That’s why Joseph has an impressive appearance.

CALF-ZILLA PROMO (a stipulation is really needed)
He’s the guy that did this and that to James Storm. Their match at the PPV will be a #1 contenders match for Lockdown, even though James Storm is the #1 contender at Lockdown. After he beat Bully Ray. What will be different? What stipulation will make this match different than the last time? 

Sting appears… he’s all crazy. Yep Sting is crazy alright. Sting looks like Raul Julia from Adams Family Values since his makeup is over his eyes and he has a mustache. Oh good and it’s after the break. 

ROODE vs BULLY (a wasted money match)
Again… Roode, Storm, Hardy, Bully and Angle are your money guys. You do not have them on free TV facing one another. You have them against lesser guys. Anyway this match has been built up a lot better than Roode vs Storm so why not give it away on free TV? We just had one heel vs heel match, why not have another back to back? The crowd is rowdy in a good way.

After a few minutes, Storm appears to chase out Bully Ray… then not care about Roode until he stands up. Storm gives Roode the Last Call and lays the title on him. I think Roode & Storm have touched way too much for me to give a damn about their match. In fact TNA knows the only way to get heat on this match is promise a title change. I don’t want to see someone in your main event of next PPV laid out. Why do I want to watch Sting beat someone when I just saw him laid out 2 weeks in a row? 

TNA LIVE EVENT COMMERCIAL (and how counterproductive is)
Fan buries why go to an Impact taping when someone will put up a sign in your face and you won’t meet the superstars? Plug the fact you meet the wrestlers, but don’t bury your TV tapings.

CRIMMORGAN BACKSTAGE (with Joseph Parks)
Joe is looking for his brother who’s his brother? Crimmorgan have issues as a team. Whatever.

ROBBIE E & ROB TERRY vs CRIMMORGAN (and various bad tacked on elements)
Feels like a tag division is brewing. Robbie E & Rob Terry appear in matching pink sweaters? What’s the logic behind that? I know their heels, but it just felt tacked on and stupid. Speaking of tacked on Mike Tennay needs to remind us of Crimson & Morgan’s history as competitors beating the hell out of one another and then they are paired as a tag team. I think they only had 2 singles matches in the span of 2 months. They had a few with Joe mixed in there too.

Wow this match has a lot of meat in it. If anything this match makes Terry and Robbie E look good. Frequent tags, Terry does power spots, Robbie E does quick spots. It’s everything that Morgan and Crimson should have been doing 3 months ago and everything Mexican America should have done. Morgan looked good when he got the hot tag too. Good finish, I just don’t like where this team is headed since TNA needs teams and these 2 should be killing the tag division and not arguing. Tennay announces CrimMorgan vs JoNus Brothers atVictory Road, making 5 matches in 3 months. No one should have that many matches. That’s what singles matches and 3 ways are for. 

KURT ANGLE & GUNNER BACKSTAGE (senseless promo)
Kurt just recaps… Kurt’s eyebrows twitch purposely. Tennay and Tazz could have just thrown up a graphic the match is still to come.

AJ / KAZ / DANIELS RECAP
Thank god they recapped this, because it makes no sense and still makes no sense.

AJ STYLEZ PROMO interrupted by KAZANIELS
Yep another and I bet he wants answers. He informs the crowd that the 10th anniversary is coming and I couldn’t be more sad for a guy who’s been with the company since day 1 to be stuck in the mud like this. Saddled with something that could have fantastic matches, but the logic behind them makes no sense. He reminds fans of some terrible angles before KAZ & Daniels show up. 

Daniels says AJ got fame and Daniels got fired. Oooo KAZ calls AJ transparent and predictable and puts trust in the wrong people. Maybe that’s AJ’s fault and not their’s. I’m still waiting for it to make sense or maybe it makes sense and I just don’t care because they’ve teased this for weeks. Why not just say AJ got Daniels and KAZ fired both. Or do that TV title idea that I’ve mentioned for a month.

Oh fuck Kennedy is back. Now I really don’t care. He just steals the thunder of this terrible angle.

GARRETT & HARDY vs ANGLE & GUNNER (killing all heat for Angle vs Hardy)
Uggg. Again Angle vs Hardy is a money match and having them touch in 2 tag matches in the past 3 weeks doesn’t make me want to see a singles match. Hardy is TNA’s ratings man supposedly, so this main even should do well compared to last week’s 6 man tag that didn’t have him. You can still have Hardy in a match, you can have Angle in a match, just not the same match, but then I guess that wouldn’t mean you’d piggyback Garrett on Hardy & Angle.

Hardy comes out shambling like a ghoul. Like I’ve said before he’s not a wrestler just a performance artist. Gunner gets an anti gunner chant even before he’s tagged in. That’s heat. The crowd this week was great with chanting and rowdiness.

 

Garrett gets the hot tag and he’s really sloppy. So sloppy that TNA needs to cut to different angles. He’s pretty wild out there. When he stands his arms flail out. Good finish that made sense, but now I don’t need to watch either match at the PPV.

IN CONCLUSION (zero heat forVictory Road)
Andersonvs Daniels is announced. I’m wonder when the PPV is. TNA really fails at plugging their pay-per-views. You had your world champion main eventer get laid out earlier. You had your X-Division pay-per-view match for free. You had a tag match that killed all heat for your #3 PPV match. But hey it’s only the 3rd match from the top, why am I nitpicking? Oh and on your PPV you’ll have a tag title match that we’ve seen 5x in the past 3 months. TNA is really betting on Sting… but if Sting goes over someone that was laid out 2x in as many weeks does that really mean anything?

Thoughts on TNA Impact headed into the PPV (9-8-11)

FORGETTING SOMETHING? (or someone)
There were a few things evident last night… such as no Christopher Daniels or AJ Styles and Samoa Joe and Matt Morgan was literally tacked on terribly. They really need to push all of their matches. Promos even, vignettes… anything! Even if these TV shows are taped 2 shows at a time and they can’t do everything in the ring, have pretapes for the TV. Seeing as how all these guys may very well have the best matches at the PPV, its dumb to leave them off TV.

BOUND FOR GLORY SERIES
The show really put some heat on the final four of the Bound for Glory Series, but that is a mess in and of itself. The BFG series is clearly a sham with some workers having more matches than others. Hopefully next year they can do a round robin style series with 1 on 1 matches with 5 or 6 matches per week (house shows included).

They put heat on Gunner as a wildcard in the tournament, because I’m sure no one gives him a chance, so he won the final four-way. Bully Ray, Storm and Roode all cut fiery promos. Storm’s promo wasn’t the best saying Bully Ray and the big names can’t draw… which they can’t but his match is against Gunner… who is not a big name.

The tournament itself might end up being a draw with the tie breaker on TNA Impact… which could happen more than Gunner winning. I expect Roode to win… or they can have James Storm win it then at the PPV, have Angle cripple Storm only to have revenge fuel his tag team partner Robert Roode who will earn the next title shot and then get the belt. Then when James comes back he can go through Angle to get the #1 contendership and get a title shot and go into the match as 2 faces for 1 belt. It would draw. 2 men, the top tag team forced to do battle for TNA’s greatest prize.

RVD and JERRY LYNN IN THE TOILET
RVD should have called out Lynn instead of going into the bathroom. RVD would have looked more like a man and then JL could say what he said in the bathroom. They’d feed off the crowd. Ask the crowd things like… If you’ve been making some…one else look good for years wouldn’t you wonder why your paycheck isn’t as big and why he gets the promotions? RVD would wonder… if you’re the guy that everyone pays to see, why shouldn’t you get the big money? Being in front of the crowd might put heat on the match. Then they brawl, then a match is booked.

But since they didn’t do that… people will think JL was in the bathroom. Way to go. To defend TNA, they only have so much time in front of a crowd filming 2 episodes on one show.

X-DIVISION
Kendrick looked great in a suit… too bad he’s bat shit crazy underneath. He threw the belt down as a material possession… Dumbass. I hope he loses it, because gold was made by god so having it makes you closer to mother Earth or whatever. Anyway, I hope Aries wins the title so Kendrick and Eric Young can battle over the TV title in comedy matches.

TNA TITLE
Anderson got his rematch against Kurt Angle. It was probably one of Anderson’s best matches of the past few months. Anderson is a guy that is so basic in the ring. Like he just goes through the motions. Now at the PPV, its Sting vs Angle vs Anderson. To be honest… I had no idea they were building tot his match. It should have been obvious to me, but it wasn’t. So strange… Maybe if I cared it would be good.

TAG TITLE
There are only 3 active tag teams… they need to get some more guys into the tag division and drop the TV title all together. There’s no heat for the Tag Title match other than maybe D-Von and Pope and their shitty storyline that ruins all of their matches. These two guys could be a good tag team if it weren’t for the stupid story interrupting their matches. Heck maybe these two guys could be a good tag team if they stop arguing and just wrestle. If wrestling matters… then have them wrestle. Pope can be put over in the tag team.

JEFF HARDY
He closed the show, when he should have been a footnote. Is he even on the PPV? I read he might take on Jeff Jarrett. Like all addicts, he had puppy dog eyes and wanted his next chance. How about earning it? I’ve been in relationships with addicts and really when you give them another chance, you’ve already lost to them! They need to work to get their chance. Put a carrot in front of Hardy that will make him work. Put him in the dog house a year … like probation. Then maybe when he’s good and ready you can put him back on TV again.

Hardy should actually take on Sting and have that match free on TV to make up for the match he blew trying to scratch and claw his way to victory in his 30 second match. Terrible. I have already posted another rant on this guy.

KASH vs RANDY ORTON JR.
This match was added to the PPV after the TV. They NEED to have Kash cutting promos on this kid like he did for his post match interview. Post them on the TNA website. That post match interview with Kash was awesome. I’d love to hear more and they might go viral. Think of it TNA. Eyeballs!

TV TITLE and MMA GUY
That poor MMA guy having to commentate for this comedy match. Good job TNA. At least the TNA title was defended on TV in the ring for the first time in 3 months. Shouldn’t this guy have been stripped of the belt 2 months ago? If I didn’t have one of my employees show up for 3 months I’d fire him. TNA needs another TV show to need a TV title. Until then, discontinue it.

As for Big Rob Terry… uh he was used wisely. He should be a bodyguard… I guess.

KNOCKOUT TITLE TAG MATCH
I think we’ve got all of our titles covered on free TV. Uh… Winter got her win back against Mickey James. It should be their last match on the PPV until Velvet Skye gets a title shot at their biggest PPV of the year. All of their ducks are in a row.

FLAIR vs STING
Either I’m forgetting them … or TNA is. Isn’t Flair’s match against Sting for Flair’s career? Sure he’s retired a lot, but shouldn’t this be a big deal? Where were they? Did I forget them or did TNA?

My Version of TNA Hard(core) Justice 2011 (and tv leading up to it) (continuance from my Destination X)

My Version of Destination X Tournament 2011 (and tv leading up to it)

If I had the book…
Destination X will have
– Angle vs Kennedy for the title
– Winner of X-Division tournament will get title shot against Abyss
– KAZ vs Robbie E (or Jay Lethal)
– face Kendrick vs Daniels – face Shelley vs heel Buck (one of them)
– invading heel Senshi (in TNA 2 prove he’s the best) vs Red (or Red’s alter ego) (or Jay Lethal)
– big 10 man tag or something to fill up the other slots – Morgan / Sting / AJ / RVD / Crimson vs Hardy / Joe / Bully / Gunner / Dreamer
In the tournament
– KAZ over Robbie (duh)
– Kendrick or Daniels either one – Shelly over Buck – Senshi over Red

Then – Kaz vs Shelley – Senshi vs Kendrick or Daniels

Outcome – Kaz over Shelley – Kendrick or Daniels over Senshi

Meanwhile the heavyweight match – Angle over Kennedy clean via submission – Kennedy slinks away with a snear

Then in the finals – prettyboy Kaz vs squeaky clean face Kendrick or workhorse Daniels – The story with Kendrick would be good guy gets beat clean, but gets jealous – Jealousy slowly drives him nuts… but Kendrick was just a heel – The story with Daniels in the final is Fortune might be torn apart?
– Who do AJ / Roode & James Storm cheer for? Interview them?
– Who does Abyss cheer for? He roots for KAZ or Kendrick, he’d like to pull out their hair – His girl Janice would look good with a wig…

KAZ wins, Abyss hits the ring immediately fresh!
– Logic would say Abyss over clean and quick to setup a match for the next PPV – I’d like to twist it though… small package KAZ wins – Abyss is dumbfounded, but still gets his rematch – Faces and Fortune come out to celebrate with KAZ – Bischoff gives the X-division belt to KAZ in a moment that should seem like a milestone – Bischoff then DISAPPEARS from the PPV so as not to take heat from KAZ – Angle comes out and things grind to a hault – New champion Angle even comes out to give KAZ a pat on the back then Angle leaves – KAZ is hoisted by Fortune – KAZ with a glory shot putting him over to close the PPV

BUT… HERE’S HOW WE GET THERE…

I’ll just say there are 4 weeks from Slammiversary to Destination X – I don’t care if its really 3 or 6 weeks, if I don’t know you probably don’t know
