Impact 9/13 So as expected Impact opens with the champ, as it should. Unfortunately, he is talking about Aces & 8s . He quickly transitions to Hardy, who comes out and as I said they would, things quickly turns into a verbal dick sucking fest. Aries and Hardy are bros, I get it, but that doesn't make for an interesting feud. Aries is going to be playing a bit of a tweener role I would imagine, just being more aggressive on the mic and that sort of thing... so maybe he can save the build for the BFG Main Event. Insert: Bully Ray . He is playing up the 'he went easy on Hardy' angle, which is fine. You knew Bully would be able to spin it, as he is unable to be buried. Hardy wants to fight Bully? Why would I want to see this again? "Don't take that shirt off, don't take that shirt off!" Hilarious. That was sort of an awkward way to end the opening segment, but I realize they have to work around Hardy's awfulness on the mic. Again though, why have this match 4 days later? Nobody wants to see it. __________ X Division Championship match? . I never expected this. Dutt and Ion again??? Why TNA why? I hate when companies do this. So far we have two rematches from Sunday Night. How exciting. Good match (really liked the false finish on the double foot stomp when Ion put his foot on the rope at 2.5), I like Ion a lot, but can we get him in another feud please? and stop treating the X Division title like it is the United States title? There was really no point to ending the feud with King. I thought it was awesome and had some momentum. They could have made that a 3 PPV match series with King winning the belt. __________ Daniels having a conversation with himself as Hulk Hogan was awesome. The stipulation Hulk gives about Singles matches and rematches... was not awesome. I hate when the tag team champions have singles matches. It just screams 'hey look how weak our tag division is' in my eyes. I'm also so tired of this AJ/Daniels shit that I honestly can't put it into words :blown: __________ GET IN JAIL FOR DOING WHAT? GETTING EVEN?? SCREW YOU HOGAN!! (we need a Roode smiley) SHIT FACTOR SHIT FACTOR SHIT FACTOR Oh how I've missed you Roode. Swag on lvl 100. Roode might be the best mic worker in pro wrestling right now. Here comes the pissed off cowboy wearing a skull cap. He's beating up Bobby arker: . They don't even show the conclusion of the brawl, all we get is Tenay 'it took like a dozen of em to break it up!!' __________ AJ vs Kaz Since Kaz's pairing with Daniels, he has become a new favorite of mine. I've always enjoyed his ring work, but I love his character now as well and he is hilarious to go along with his stellar ring work. WTF @ that spot on the apron. I don't think I've ever seen anything like that. Kaz is nuts to agree to that, but he is fine. Dude bumps like a poor man's Ziggler. I thought he might be dead there. Now we get AJ crashing into the rail and then taking a monkey flip onto the floor lol. This is great. AJ goes over clean. okay. More Angles/Styles vs Daniels/Kaz. Something new would be nice __________ Joey Park. Killing it like mf ALWAYS. I re-watched that 30 second promo 3 times. Left us with a killer cliffhanger as well. <3<3. I'm so proud to be the ORIGINAL Park Mark. NOw he's a body guard . Hilarious __________ Dear god fuck Jeff Hardy for putting his title on the line. Why do faces always do that shit? "Oh yea bro, I'll put up ::insert something of value here:: for no reason at all, with nothing to gain! Why not?" Awful booking. I won't complain if Bully actually wins though, I just don't think that would happen. __________ HULK! DUDE! BROTHER! This promo sucks lol. I'm actually excited to see Aces & 8s. Okay so they continue to 'hint' (as if we don't know) that there is a mole. Probably Bully Ray. And they will show up at the main event tonight. Not a bad promo from the faceless goon lol. He put Hogan's ass on notice at least. Storyline still hasn't progressed much if at all. RECAP of this shit? Fuck you TNA. That's gay __________ Chavo vs Daniels If Daniels loses this match I'll be upset. I'm not upset at that outfit Christy Hemme is wearing :maybe: Taz talking about desperate cornered rats for about 5 minutes is the only notable thing I took away from this match. He needs to gtfo. He is even worse than Tenay. Wait, Chavo won? . TNA just shamelessly plugs in Chavo basically marketing it as 'hey, Eddie's dead, here's Chavo!'. How many allusions can they make to Eddie? Chavo invented lying, cheating, and stealing? gtfo. And of course they end the segment with 'Shades of the late, great Eddie Guerrero!'. I like Chavo, but this is pathetic and Chavo is damn sure no Eddie. __________ Gut Check preview for next week. This shit has taken on a new meaning; because every time I see a Gut Check segment I feel like I'm going to puke. Fuck this garbage. __________ 'We Will hear from Tara'---- why? If James Storm and Bobby Roode have a match next week for OFN I will seriously flip my shit If Tara isn't here to make out with Brooke than I don't want to see this. Well, here comes Brooke, so step 1 is complete I guess . Tessmacher was on SI.com?? Damn. That's nice coverage :OO D'awwwwwww. Tara is so proud. PLZ LEZ OUT NOW. She loves her! IT'S TIME TNA. UNLEASH THE LESBIAN ANGLE. May I? YES YOU MAY TARA. 'Best friend'- just drop the code. We can all read between the lines. They hugged.. come on.. grab her ass! Wow, nothing. What a bullshit segment. __________ Lmao, I spoke too soon. Tara heel turn! Awesome. fuck her up! Widow's peak dat bitch! :lol2: . Thank you Tara. <3. Finally the KO's division is somewhat interesting again __________ Dixie?? ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Go away. D Lo Brown!! Yes ROFLMFAO. Hogan's bro ran with a bad crew in Oakland. My hood is so gangsta :ryan: D Lo aside, this segment was corny and shitty. __________ Bully vs Hardy 1 elongated Jeff Hardy entrance to open the show was enough for me.. Better match than I expected thus far. The crowd thinks Bully sucks, which I find to be preposterous. After I praised the match for being OK, it got boring. Oh look, Hardy wins. Yawn, shocked. :swagger: (yes I know it won't actually show up) __________ Positives: -Roode, Bully, and Park are all 10/10 when they are on my screen -X Division Title match at least keeps the division on TV -Tara heel turn -Good match w/ Kaz & AJ as well as Kaz/Daniels hilarious backstage antics Negatives: -Filler episode. Nothing advanced, we got rehashed matches from the PPV, and mostly the same old shit. Considering BFG is a month away, that is bullshit -No Samoa Joe. fuck that -No advancement in the Aces & 8s angle (of course not) -Everything about Chavo in TNA, from going over Daniels to the way they portray him -No :ryan: Overall: Mediocre episode of Impact, I would say below average by their standards. It felt to me like they were just spinning their wheels this week making us wait on something to matter.
