Discussion in 'TNA iMPACT! (2011-2015)' started by Testify, Apr 16, 2014.
LIVE from ORLANDO
SUNDAY, APRIL 27th
I'm not that pumped for this PPV. We've already seen Gunner vs Storm 1000 times, and I'd rather have more fresh matches come up. My Sacrifice PPV would probably be this:
EY (c) vs Magnus - TNA World Heavyweight Championship
The BroMans (c) vs The Wolves - TNA World Tag Team Championship, if The BroMans are disqualified/counted out, they lose the titles
Sanada (c) vs Tigre Uno - TNA X-Division Championship, Final match in best of 3 series
Madison Rayne (c) vs Angelina Love - TNA Knockouts Championship
Bully Ray vs Bobby Roode - Tables match
Samoa Joe, Gunner and Angle vs Aries and Bad Influence
MVP vs Kenny King - If King wins, he gets X-Division title shot
EC3 and Rockstar Spud vs Willow and Bobby Lashley
7 matches set for the PPV
Wolves vs. Bromans with some stip probably to be added next week on Impact.
Pretty pumped for this, Bully v Roode an Sanada v Tigre Uno got me well in the mood.
Hey, card looks fun. EY/Magnus was good last week, they can do some good stuff there. Bully/Roode will be awesome and there's no need for any explanation. Gunner/Storm will be fun but personally, that feud has run its course, should've been over on the 2nd match (I mean, Gunner already kicked out of 2 consecutive Superkicks and won clean, the heat is pretty much gone, much like the Bully/Anderson feud this feud is going one blowoff too many). But since this one is I Quit, hopefully it'll end. Angle/Willow vs Spud/EC3 will be great, I mean, it has Spud in it (and Ethan is funny too). I'm digging Sanada after that package on IW and it'll be a fun match with Tigre obviously. Anderson/Shaw, hm, also feels like they've fought a lot already (and they kinda wasted Anderson's momentum with him jobbing to Shaw, but Sam is fun so I can dig that), this committed match thing sounds Russo enough that it'll make me laugh. KOs can be a fine match, nothing special.
I'm feeling pretty average in regards to how I feel about the PPV. I don't feel like this is really a 'PPV' card just because we have seen the majority of the matches on this card before and on a regular episode of Impact. It seems Like EY/Magnus will be the headline match which again makes me feel kinda meh, EY and Magnus just doesn't really possess that main-event feel does it?
In other news it is nice to see Angle returning as I do think TNA has missed his name appearing on it's cards. I'm thinking Angelina Love will take the title from Madison Rayne to light the fire in their rivalry, Madison's title reign has been as boring as wholemeal bread without butter so it would be nice to see the KO title change hands. I actually don't mind seeing Storm and Gunner fight one more time as long as Storm wins finally, I feel bad for him consistently losing to Gunner.
Tigre Uno vs. Sanada is a match I am really looking forward too, it appears they have been holding back their best for the PPV match so it should be mouth-watering. I think Sanada will keep a hold of the X-division belt. Bully Ray vs. Bobby Roode in a tables match will be must-watch, has to be a Bully Ray victory the way they have been building the rivalry. Anderson/Shaw doesn't really interest me right now but I think and hope Anderson will win to settle their rivalry.
Rumor for the World Tag Team Championship match:
Robbie E, Jesse Godderz & Zema Ion vs. Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards in handicap match for the World Tag Team Titles
Sounds like a feud-ending, strong put over for the Wolves, so I dig it if this is indeed the plan for the show and of course the Wolves finally win and hold the titles for a good period of time.
Don't agree with it. With the story of the Bromans always screwing the Wolves out of the belts, why would you give them the advantage? Figured it would be the simple "Bromans get DQ'ed they lose the belts", and you can have an Ion run-in behind the ref's back so the Wolves can overcome that and get the strong put-over you want.
actually with MVP being so kayfabe bad at his job this might actually happen
This card looks pretty good though, isn't a bad blow-off PPV, but wtf is a "committed match"?
My inner TNA mark is extremely excited for this. Storylines have been played out nicely on the last few Impact's, becoming a mark for Willow so his match is a highlight for me. Him and Angle vs EC3 and Spud, love all those guys. Anderson and Shaw have had solid matches, this probably will be the best of them. Magnus and EY, eh. I love both of them as well but not sure how that'll turn out match wise. Roode and Bully, fuck yes. Knockouts match actually has a nice storyline going with it. Kenny King better do something during that X-Division match. Gunner vs Storm is probably what I'm looking forward to the least but I'm sure it'll be decent. Overall looks fine to me.
The Wolves better win but who will they feud with next that's the problem?!
Ok, my heart stopped for a bit when you said you don't agree, lol.
Anyway, the setup will probably be the Wolves demanding all three of the Bromans at the PPV because all three of 'em screwed them over and over again, and they are fighting spirits and want all in etc ec3 etc. Wolves finally beat all three chodes, and you have a nice feud-ender I guess. Hopefully this doesn't turn out to be a pointless discussion if this exact match isn't booked for the show, lmao.
Pretty good card, although it lacks The Bro-Mans vs The Wolves (either 3 on 2 handicap match or "if Bro-Mans are DQ'd, they lose the titles to The Wolves) and a few other guys like Aries, King, Manik, Joe and MVP. I'm assuming we will get the big Tag Team match, but that'll make 8 matches and I doubt we can put anymore there. I'm just a bit pissed that we get Gunner vs Storm part 324132, they have good matches, but when will the feud end? It's getting to the point that we don't really give a shit which is a shame, because the feud was brilliant. Also, Anderson vs Shaw... in a committed match? The fuck is that? I'm actually excited to see what it is, but then again the feud's beginning to go nowhere. I think TNA have something there, the PPV has so many matches and I can think of a few more that could've been. I just hope they now sign a new tag team or two, that'll make the roster even better. Also, if Willow beat Spud and EC3 by himself, why does he need Angle with him?
Wish Aries vs. MVP was happening on this PPV rather than this Thursday on Impact, but what can you do eh.
Storm vs. Gunner feud is ending at Sacrifice hence why the "I quit" match. I should note this is the 5th singles match in their feud too.
Shaw vs. Anderson feud is probably also ending at Sacrifice, I expect Shaw to be taken by psychiatric service lol. I have zero clue what "commited" stip means, but it's Russo 101.
Why does Willow need Angle? Because Angle won the gold medal with the broken freakin neck.
Stoked for Match #3 of 3 between Sanada and Tigre for the X-Division! Really pulling for Tigre but honestly I do enjoy both competitors since they've started doing work in TNA.
I agree, Aries vs MVP would a great match to put on PPV but apparently they love to put good matches out on Impact and put rematches on PPV, because that'll sell well. Right? RIGHT!?
It should've ended the last time they fought. Storm smashing the beer bottle over Gunner's dad, and Gunner getting his revenge would be a great way to end it. Also, this stipulation slows down matches because everytime they beat down someone, they do the whole "quit!" "no" "QUIT, MOTHERFUDGER" thing. I can see why they're doing the match again though, maybe to pass some time while keeping them relevant so Storm can use his Tag Team briefcase (unless they did a typical wrestling move where they forgot about it) and Gunner can push on in singles action.
Shaw vs Anderson ending at Sacrifice and Shaw being taken away by the psychiatric service would be okay, and Shaw can come back to feud with someone else while being a creepy bastard. I'm just hoping this is really the end though, I don't think I can take more of this feud because I've seen it too many times.
Then again, if Willow beat EC3 and Angle by himself, there is no reason to put Angle in the match. The beatdown will be even worse...
Was just thinking about the first part of this, and there's gotta be a match involving this MVP vs Disgruntled Employees storyline... now I know there's spoilers out but I haven't read them, but if I was booking this, I'd go ahead and bring Knux back to TV and let him be a bodyguard to MVP, so we can get something like Aries and King vs Knux and MVP, which could be the obligatory TNA interference match with Samoa Joe attacking MVP... but at least with the heel team in there we'd get good action. (Maybe you can put someone like Manik in that spot, but Knux just makes more sense.)
Yeah Storm and Gunner should at least be an entertaining match, but Gunner was already put over well at Lockdown and on Impact. Maybe Storm's getting his win back? That'll be fine.
Know I played the Beer Money song earlier, but.. I can't help but feel really hypocritical to mark for a Beer Money reunion. Perhaps I'd prefer Aries and Kenny King to be in the tag division so Roode can feud with EY or something like that, since being in the tag division again is a complete waste of Roode... and Aries, for that matter. Hell, even Kenny King deserves better, but you've gotta put someone down there.
Eh Willow and Angle both want revenge so there's your tag match. don't see the big problem with that. Another thing I see complained about alot is the gimmick matches in TNA nowadays, people are yelling "Russo's back" and "Too many gimmicks"... I honestly haven't noticed that much of a difference. Yeah, when you look at it there's too many gimmick matches nowadays, but just watching the show it's no big deal.
Well, I could see the Wolves winning the belts and then Storm and Roode reuniting and using the briefcase to go after the belts.
Pretty much. I think The Bro-Mans are due to finally lose their titles and maybe stay away from TV, they've had way too much TV time recently. We'll probably see The Wolves win the titles, defend a few times to make them look stronger, and then feud with Beer Money. TNA still need to re-sign Bad Influence and then get 2 more tag teams, doesn't really matter if they're well known indie heroes or even old guys (like two guys from Aces and Eights, Knux and Bitchoff or whatever his name is... Bischoff?)
