Post your thoughts on the show here. My thoughts: Opening segment: Storm is awesome on the mic. He is what a face should sound like on the stick, not a generic, corny, half ass robot. Storm built towards LD, his intensity was great, but Bully came out to remind him that he is still what's next on Storm's plate. Bully was great as always. The match makes perfect sense at VR because it's Bully who wants to take out Storm so he can take his title shot. Set up a match later for Storm/Gunner. Not a big fan of Gunner, but he's a good candidate to job to Storm and give him a win going into VR. Also D Lo Brown came out to break up the Storm/Gunner scuffle, so bonus points there. Rayne/Kim- I enjoy their catyness back and forth, and Sting booking them both in singles matches made sense. Only complaint: I would have put Gail with Velvet and Rayne with Micky, instead of booking the two good workers together and the two sub par workers together. Madison is so damn hot. Do want. Rayne/Velvet match- 5 start technical masterpiece. Seriously though, Madison entertains me. Her interacting with the crowd on the way out, and her telling Velvet she loves her after she beat her and saying 'we can still be friends' Have I mentioned how hot Maddie is? Goodness. Velvet aint bad either Joe/Crimson- Wasn't really too interested in this match as we all knew what was going to happen. Same with their match Sunday. Not sure why they are still feuding, wish they would just move on from this. Decent back and forth between Joe and Crimson, but whatever. Looking forward to Crimson turning heel and what they do with joe/Magnus next Aries/Ion promo- possibly the highlight of the night. Aries was on point as always, his highlight package was great, and I'll be honest, Ion surprised me a bit. He sort of had a crazy look about him, and his mic work wasn't that bad. Really good stuff from both guys. The heel/heel dynamic is going to be fun to watch at VR The search for Abyss- I like this storyline, but the one quick segment with Gunner was a little bland. EY/ODB- Not a bad backstage segment, provided some lulz Angle backstage promo- hilarious. Heel Angle is amazing Mickie James/GK- We've seen this match enough, but Mickie was looking hella fine, so I was okay with it. The ending was pretty retarded though. Not the best we've seen out of these two Anderson/Daniels- Anderson was a little corny, but sort of entertaining. Daniels was okay. Not the best segment of the night, not the best feud going, but it should be an okay tag match @ VR. I laughed when Anderson got his drink knocked out of his hand and was like 'ohhhhhhhhhhh... not that! not thatt..'. The match itself was again, just okay. Anderson does seem to be in better shape then when he left, so that's good. Kaz and Aj both get involved and as expected Anderson goes over. Angle/Garrett- Let me start by saying, no, Bischoff should be nowhere near a legend like Kurt Angle.. I get that. And yes, when we heard 5 minute challenge it telegraphed what was about ot happen. BUT this is what I felt should have been going on with Garrett all along. He should be the Mikey Whipwreck of TNA. Getting the dog shit kicked out of him, but showing his heart by never quitting. He got in no offense out of a few punches that Angle no sold. Angle didn't look weak at all , because it was booked in a way that he could have beaten GB at any time had he chosen, but he was toying with him. Garrett's heart came into play in the last 30 seconds, and Angle couldn't finish him off after toying with him for 4 1/2 minutes. that all said, not a fan of what this is building towards, which is Angle/Hardy being tossed into the Garrett Bischoff angle for a lethal lockdown match next month Storm/Gunner- Not bad, did what it needed to do. Storm goes over clean and it helped build towards his match at VR. Contract signing- Roode was top shelf. Him digging in with both fists on Sting was damn entertaining. I expected Sting to wind up getting the better of him physically because obviously Roode will go over at VR. Overall- 7.5/10. No outstanding matches, but no really terrible ones. Most everything was watchable, and we got some excellent promos. All in all it did what a go home show needs to do. I came out of this Impact looking forward to VR moreso than I was coming into it. Ultimately, yes, it's a filler/throwaway PPV whatever you want to call it, and the matches are pretty predictable, but it should provide some entertainment.
