  2. Velvet Sky in the KO's picture again? Ugh.
    Very interesting she's defending the belt here, Roode should be as well.

    Can't wait for Styles.
  3. ~45 minutes until the show

    hopefully Roode opens shit up talking about how bad he whooped BVD
  4. Looks like we'll be getting some good matches tonight.

  5. Pretty good show. Angle/Joe was dope, and the battle royal was awesome with AJ/Aries going at it even if it was only for a minute or so (hopefully to God they feud sometime)

    Pretty much on par with shows in recent weeks, I'd say 6/10
  6. I could hear Bully Ray bitch about the Kardashians all day. TNA should start a second one-hour show, just for Bully Ray. They don't need a script, don't need a topic, just give him a mic to rant about random shit. I guarantee that will get twice as many viewers as the second-highest show on that channel. If they bring in Steiner, they'd top Impact for sure.

    So Madison has a boyfriend? She shouldn't have been out for the battle royal, she would have fit better at the 6-Man Tag on Raw. Why did they not put over this being the last time Gail Kim has to defend her belt before she breaks Madison's record for that belt (she sets the record Sunday), and why didn't they put Madison in the title match tonight? Gail needs a character, maybe Hogan's daughter can do something productive after all.

    I can't believe I'm saying this... but Crimson feuding with Eric Young is really looking good. The Styles segment was pretty unspectacular. Devon feuding with Garett and Robbie E feuding with Rob Terry can gtfo and fast. Why was there no TV Title match?

    As for the whole theme of the show, it just seemed silly. It's hard to really get invested in the winner and loser having a chance of a title match when the GM who, on-and-off screen, shows extreme favoritism picks who gets it. And after Sacrifice, Roode should not lose that belt to anyone not named Austin Aries anyway.

    6/10 seems fair, but I'll give it an extra point just for all the awesome Kurt/Joe highlights. 7/10
  7. Garret Bischoff eliminating Devon and seeling that ensugiri :boss:
