So for those saw the PPV know that Jeff Hardy is now the new TNA World champion and has turned heel along side Hogan, Eric Bishoff, and Jeff Jarrett. It was revealed in the main event that THEY are indeed Hogan, Bischoff, and Jarrett after Abyss came out following Hardy's victory. Check out the review of the show on ewrestlingnews.com headlines

Okay. I'll admit. I did not see the Jeff Hardy Heel turn coming. That is probably one of the best moves TNA has made all year. The THEY unveiling did not surprise me as much, but it is intriging. Now it adds a different aspect to why Eric Bishoff and Hogan are at TNA. So in the ashes of a lackluster pay-per-view ... comes this very interesting storyline that could change the landscape of TNA for good.

I know I will be tuning into TNA impact just to see how this all plays out. Most importantly, I want to see how Jeff fairs as a heel.

What are your thoughts?

TNA must be in a gambling mood to have Jeff as World Champ.

This doesn’t really change anything because we already know that Bishoff, Hogan, and Jarrett run the company so now there just going to act like themselves, as for Jeff not sure why they would have done that, he will be in jail soon, if he doesn’t die from a heart attack or drugs. This might just be the set up to bringing in Matt so they can fight each other, JUST LIKE IN WWE.

Basically since Matt did announce that he is crossing the line. I feel TNA is gambling with no luck. I feel that they will lose this.

Agreed, it would be safer bet if it were the matt and jeff from a few years ago.

Typical TNA anti-climax. They basically just threw together whoever was at hand.

Besides, it doesn't make much sense. Why would Hogan keep putting RVD over for months, rush out to his aid a number of times to help him keep the title, then one day he wakes up and thinks "Gee, I don't like RVD any more, I'm going to start some drawn out and elaborate plan to get the belt away from him...and I'm going to wait until the date has three 10s in it because...err..because that's cool or something." There was no build up, no motive, nothing.

Once again, the TNA writers should be embarrassed. I've seen more plausible and mature writing from 5 year olds.

How do I feel? I feel the heel turn was interesting and out of the blue... other than that TNA owes me my money back... I bought the PPV based on a couple things... first being the Lockdown match, which I thought was just stupid and poorly booked... the second being the Heavyweight Title Match and the revelation of THEY (cause if you thought it was getting revealed earlier, you need help) and I am horribly horribly dissapointed... I was expecting someone to come in to shake things up... maybe fix the pervasive problems I see in TNA (most being storyline related).. what I do I get? more goddamn screen time for Hogan and Bischoff... hell. no.

I debated getting this PPV for a couple of weeks, now I am glad I did not. My co-workers were debating nearly every night who "they" are, and the only thing we got wrong was Hardy and not Angle. I really wanted to hope that this was gonna be something game-changing, and not a rehash of "evil" Eric, Hogan and Jarrett running things, but deep down I knew if it was big than we all would have heard about it on the net long before. I would assume since 3 of the 5 are older and for the most part can't wrestle that they will turn a few more heels in the coming weeks, but in the end does it matter? I really think if ROH was more widely available in my area that I would jump ship.

I watched this PPV after I stopped watching TNA in over 6 or 7 months. Seems like I haven't missed anything interesting. Once I saw Hogan coming out, I wished he tripped, landed on his neck and died.

Yeah this group makes no sense. How can Hardy work as a heel? I just don't see that in him. And Abyss was supposed to be fired right after his BFG match. And Jarrett was just "fighting some good fight" against Sting (who is also confusing me) only to reveal that he will now be trying to take Dixie down (just like Abyss said they were gonna start at). And Hogan and Bischoff were being cheered by the fans.

So now....was Sting trying to say all along that Hogan and Bischoff were gonna find some way to try to prevent the big name veterans like him from stayin on a main event level?

Nothing that TNA does makes much sense. That's why even though WWE has some boring storylines, people follow them more. At least most of their stories make sense. There's a beginning, a follow up and sometimes and ending. It is that so Goddamn hard for Russo to understand?

I did see the Hardy heel turn coming, I even said it in a post about a week ago. You could see it coming because of the way TNA was basically building up Angle & Anderson, almost forgetting about Hardy. Its a good move for his career, and maybe TNA, but what is not good is this new faction. Hogan & Bischoff AGAIN??? Please. And aren't both Abyss & Jarrett former world champions? Why would they back a newbie just arrivinbg on the TNA scene?? Do they no longer have any world championship aspirations?? Add all of this to the fact that TNA has a pretty kick ass heel faction in Fortune, and this makes no sense whatsoever.

Maybe they will have all the factions fight each other at the next pay per view, since there about 10 factions runing around at TNA.

Some of these wrestling writers seem to think if it's unpredictable it's good, but just doing something to shock is a real cheap tactic.

It needs to make some kind of sense. When Shawn Michaels turned heel on Marty Janetty, it was kind of predictable because there was a build up and you could see he was getting impatient and arrogant. When Bret turned heel against Stone Cold, it was a gradual process that made sense. That's good writing. All this sudden heel turning without reason is just nonsense and lacks any kind of coherence.

True indeed. Even if Cena turn there will have been a precedent to give it validity. This heel turn, although cool for Hardy, just doesn't feel organic nor does it make any sense.

No dude. Just kidding. I wouldn't wish death on no one.

Ok, have to say I saw Hogan and Bischoff being they, a little surprised at Jarrett, and caught off guard by Hardy. Seem to me like TNA thought Paul Heyman was gonna come in and planned on it being him, and this was propbably all they could do, but it seem like the nWo revisited.
As for who they'll face, Angle, Anderson, RVD, Joe and Sting would be my guess.
Does anyone else remember when Sting was suspended, he was about to tell Dixie something, and Eric ran up to stop him? Would be good if they linked that in.
Also, I can see fortune being pushed aside for this new group, which when you look at the talent, is a real shame!
For the long term benefit of the company, Dixie needs to get rid of Hogan, Bischoff and Russo! But that's just my opinion!

As I watched this supposed "grandest PPV of the year" for TNA, my eyes couldn't have rolled further to the back of my head. I am so tired of the recycled storylines. I admit I was caught on to find out who 'THEY' were and was hoping it'd be someone totally different but as soon as I saw Bischoff out first, then Hogan... I knew... and all I could keep thinking was "Oh God, here comes nWo 2.0"...

Quite honestly, the only thing TNA has going for it right now is the Motor City Machine Guns and Generation ME... THAT'S IT!!! At one time they also had the best women's division in wrestling today, and then they just let it go to hell in a handbasket with nothing but the eye candy that can't wrestle (with the exception of Tara/Victoria).

Quite frankly, I watch WWE & TNA because I grew up watching wrestling and frankly I will most likely never stop watching the FREE shows on TV, but you will never catch me buying the pay-per-views because they are flat out just not worth it.

For REAL entertaining wrestling, I find myself going to YouTube and watching Ring of Honor, since I don't have HDnet. But I do buy their iPPV's. ROH all the way!
