To continue where I left off on TNA the last time.
Here in the last few shows it seems the tag division has kind of hit a stale section. You don't see much in the way of feuding between many different tag teams like you used too. Motor City Machine Guns have been absent. The only two I have seen have been Ink Inc. and Mexican America. And of course M.A. got the belts from Beer Money. The few tag teams that were a part of TNA were interesting. Now it is just filler. Take it back to what it was.
The X-Division is probably the most entertaining thing about TNA. Austin Aries is an excellent athlete and fantastic heel. He is drawing heat like no one else right now (Save John Lauranitus on RAW.). Jesse Sorenson has great in ring ability and is being developed well by putting him in a feud with Kid Kash. So as you watch them on TV you can only see him get better. The re-introduction of Kash was a stroke of genius on TNAs part. He can be used to help the younger talent get over as well entertain those who know his work. He brings more of a mat based style to the X-Division.
Brian Kendrick. Eh, I never really cared for him. I guess he is OK, but the drunken monkey style just is a bad wrestling form. And the tree hugger gimmick and the why can't we just get along thing is just boring.
Karen Jarret wasn't a true part of the knockouts until recently, but she is perfect for her role. She makes me want to hate her, and I love it. That is exactly what a heel character is supposed to do. I want that feeling of "I wish I could strangle you right now." It makes her character believable. So, if TNA knows what is good for them, they keep her in this VP over Knockouts role.
Bring back Gail Kim was a fantastic idea. Even if EVERYONE saw it coming. I think she will add some credibility to the product. And it gives them a second Knockout with a good look for your pervy male fans.
I think that is all right now. I can tell you I will do a Knockout and Diva Overview soon. As there have been happenings since my last Knockout/Diva overview.
