My Thoughts on Victory Road: A Rick Starr Blog Splash

Rating: 2 votes, 3.00 average.

For those of you who did not watch, what was probably the worst PPV Main Event in Wrestling history Sunday night, you have most likely already heard about it on this very web-site. Most you have undoubtedly even went on to watch the replay of the match (as the match it self only took a whopping 88 seconds.).

I read the rumors, and I honestly believed that Hardy was under the influence of something. He stumbled down the ramp like an idiot, and Sting was clearly upset at the whole situation before and after the match. When fans were chanting "This is bullshit" Sting pumped up the fans, by saying "I agree, I agree!"

Another issue that Sean "Val Venis" Morley made (That also can be found on this site) that Jeff Hardy didn't "sell" Sting's finisher. Meaning after the match, you usually lay there like the move hurt. Hardy, popped right up after the 3 count, like it was nothing.

The fact is if TNA knew that Hardy was under the influence, then TNA are the ones that should be held for that atrocity, not Hardy. They had the opportunity to fix the situation. An easy fix would have been to change the #1 contenders match into a triple threat match for the World Title. However TNA dropped the ball, and as far as I'm concerned they dropped the ball several times that night. Hell, by the time it came to the main event I don't even think they knew where the dammed ball was! My Guess is someone in the back (prrobably Russo) said "What the hell, the PPV sucks anyway, let Hardy go out & wrestle."

As far as the other matches goes, I thought the #1 Contender match had no real purpose, as they already had a #1 Contender match a month ago, and Anderson has yet to have his day in the ring. Also, the ending of the match was crappy as hell, making the match even more lame.

The First Blood Match was one of the matches I was really looking forward to, but of course, they had to screw it up with the lame "fake blood/screw job" ending.

The Knockout tag-team match was decent, however the ending on that one was a bit predictable. I've yet to see the real purpose of the tag-team division in the knockouts...kinda like the tag team for the males in the WWE, no real direction, and no real purpose.

The TNA Tag team match however was a great match. Both teams did a great job, and all of us at the WGS are speculating what is going on with Ink Inc. We are wondering if Shannon Moore will break away from Ink Inc. now that Matt Hardy is in TNA, or if the team is doing a heel turn.

Another good match was the Ultimate X Match. I think it could have done without the Jersey Shore Jobber, but he was easily overlooked. Generation Me got in each others way, as they both wanted the X Title. Kaz successfully defended his title.

Matt Hardy actually looked pretty good against A.J. Styles. It was a decent match, nothing i wouldn't see on a regular night on iMPACT!. But I guess it was a good filler. AJ's Corkscrew 450 splash, for the win, however was a sight to see. Eat your heart out Justin Gabriel!

    Wow, so your solution is to not put the blame on Hardy, man just because TNA didn't deal with the situation well; doesn't mean that Hardy shouldn't be blamed. Your obviously a Hardy mark; because the facts are this, Hardy left WWE because he was bored with keeping fit and working hard; so he could go to TNA and work less and take more drugs to get hammered. That is it, the guy is a low life; who treats his very fans such as you with complete disrespect, sorry but get real mate

    So basically, the whole point of you posting this "Blog Splash" is to 1) Establish a brand presence on the internet and 2) Get free advertising to your show on popular wrestling websites.

    I'm not against a wrestling fan voicing their opinions, but I am against the thought of someone abusing the forums to display their advertising.

    I don't come on here because I'm looking to buy someone's nondescript t-shirts. I'm generally offended by the idea of reading your blogs now because it all seems like a marketing sham to try to get you more viewership, and that calls your intentions into doubt. Can we please establish some kind of no-spam rule? This is spam.

    @ Rendall I agree with Rick on this one. Clearly if the performer is a different state of mind whether it be because of drugs, alcohol, or concussion, it should be the company's (whether it is TNA, WWE, or any independent promotion) responsiblity to protect the performer from hurting himself, the opponent, or both severely. It doesn't necessarily make him a Jeff Hardy mark.

    I do agree with your comments about Jeff Hardy that doesn't really care about his fans. If he did, he wouldn't have been on something that caused him to stumble down the ramp and up the stairs and give us one of the worst squashes if not the worst squash in pro wrestling history.

    @ NaterD4 hey mate, yeah i get what you mean, but the point i was trying to get at is that when he said 'TNA are the ones that should be held for that atrocity, not Hardy'; note the fact he said 'not Hardy', as if Hardy should not be held responsible at all, that's really where I have an issue. In a typical workplace; turning up drunk is irresponsible, but most companies are greedy SOB's so to hell with them, but this situation is different as there are loyal fans involved, these people pay good money to see him, so he has a responsibility to them; that he clearly doesn't give a hoot about. But after re-reading the article I suppose I was a little harsh to call him a Jeff mark, but it just infuriates me when someone is in a position that I can only dream of; squandering it and showing so much disrespect at the same time. I think Jeff is a tool and should be sacked instantly.

    Oh and in no way was I defending TNA's actions, they are clearly in the wrong also

    I used to be a huge fan of Jeff Hardy fan when I was younger, when he was a part of the Hardy Boyz back in the (then) WWF. I'm 17 now and he has really disappointed me. I mean he still has unbelievable talent in the ring but I don't believe he should have done what he did at Glory Road. I also feel that he shouldn't have been allowed to compete under his conditions. This is just my opinion. I still think Jeff is an amazing wrestler.
