I only saw the first fifteen minutes so far, but holy shit the crowd was dead. I almost felt sorry for a Jeff Hardy seeking a reaction, but he got nothing. That was almost like playing for an empty arena and I'm not sure at this point if it's Hardy's fault or if the crowd is really starting to suck that much.

Really surprising considering TNA fans never shutup! What was Hardy saying? (Sorry, I can't watch TNA till it comes out with results or streams on Saturday(Americas Fri))

Um, what Impact were you watching because like the guy below you said, they actually wouldn't be quiet. At one point, Kennedy even responded to what one guy yelled out and the crowd was heavily behind Morgan in his support for Kennedy not competting with a concussion.

I think this is just another thread to bash TNA for no apparent reason...

I skimmed through the clips on the website.

Why the fuck is Eric Young walking around with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship?

Its not the World title...its a belt he made up. They're still going with this "Eric Young has brain damage" angle while meanwhile OJ is trying to find ways to get EY to notice him in a "different light". Personally, I thought the scene with him and Kendrick last night was funny but I really think TNA needs to make better use of Young. I didn't like his heel turn but I did like him as the loveable loser.

The difference in that and his character now is, he's getting the "Santino treatment" but he was still able to win championships and competed more when he was just the loveable loser.

It's not a "made-up" belt. I just watched the clip and it's the old World Championship! The exact same belt!

Well as far as its value and his perception of it. He believes that he's a champion and the belt has some value. Literally, no its not a freshly made belt. I seriously doubt TNA would spend the money to have a new belt made just for laughes...but then again they did pay for that horridenously ugly world title Jeff Hardy wears! I hope when he finally drops it, they go back to using the old belt...make a swap with EY, then everything'll make sense, lol

How much value does a "Title I found in the trash" have?

They've spent money on joke belts before. Remember that Beer Drinking Championship Belt from his feud with James Storm?

Just very weird to make a custom World Championship and then give the former World Championship Title to a comedy character as a joke belt.

True, I forgot about the Beer Drinking title. I dunno, maybe somehow in the storyline they'll swap the belts and this is just TNA's way of explaining where the old belt has been all this time. At the end of the day, I do think the Jeff Hardy belt and the others you mentioned are a waste of money.

As big of a waste of money as the Cena spinning title. They should have been got rid of that.

I don't think it was AS big. Safe to say it cost more than Jeff's. Making it a bigger waste.

Always hated that belt. Should have gotten rid of it years ago.

Literally spent 15 bucks on that. (WWE championship spinner belt with beer bottles)

Yup. Blowing 18k on that crappy belt has opened up a world of stupid oppurtunities for TNA to capitalise on :D

Actually, unlike a lot of people in this forum, I don't bash TNA, almost ever. It is the only show I watch on television, yet I watch it online, which is why I only saw the first fifteen minutes, because the other videos got deleted upon completion of the first video.. So you're speculation is incorrect.

Other than that, the part that the crowd was dead in was shortly after Jeff Hardy came out. Anderson and Morgan got their pops for making fun of his makeup and being Hogan's bitch.. Then Hardy came back with some mic time and it died COMPLETELY, if you missed that part you must have missed it completely, because you could see the anger in Hardy's face that he wasn't getting a reaction. I'm dying for someone else to notice this obvious part of the show after reading your post. He was pissed off legitimately.

I love TNA, but it's almost like the second Jeff Hardy said the word "mark", these fans had no idea what he was talking about anymore, like they don't understand the simplest of wrestling lingo. Please rewatch and tell me you noticed this.
