Personally, they make me cringe more than laugh. I am just not interested in what someone like Hardy would be thinking. Had they used this for someone like Roode, Storm, Styles, Aries, (or others) I might be interested. Hell, I'd rather hear RVD's thoughts on where in the world it is currently 4:20 and mobster conspiracies than to hear Jeff thoughts of randomness.

I've seen a little of their work as tag team partners in OVW and I think both kids have talent; Silva is just not impressive and looks awkward in the ring (like he is standing on his tip-toes or something). Shaw, however, could be a potential break out if he improves his ring work and seriously starts studying tape on promos. The kid is raw, but the potential is there.
York/Hardy was match of the night and I love how Christian did what you'd expect everyone to do on OFN; call out the champ. Ryan/Chavo did well to set up the up and coming feud between the two teams, and Kaz/AJ delivered as expected. I will also admit that Mr. Pec-tacular does well with his heel persona. He might need work in the ring, but he carries himself in the way an overly cocky wrestler should. I hate that EY was taken out (after waiting so long, he comes back for 3 weeks only to get sidelined again), but I felt they did an awesome job with making the attack look brutal (especially with the tears streaming down ODB's face).
If I had one complaint, it would be that I wish Borash was back on the headset. Todd does well calling the inring action and seems to have good chemistry with the Mike and Taz, but Borash brings that "authentic" TNA feel when he is on the headset. I would like for TNA to try out Todd, Borash, and Tenay one week and then Todd, Borash, and Taz another week. I would like the Todd, Borash, and Tenay team because they would be able to call a match move for move, which I am a fan of; the set back is that they would have absolutely no one to add color as I don't find Todd funny, and Borash could never be that "arrogant" on the mic imo. I love the Professor for his knowledge of wrestling, but I think he is getting closer and closer to the end of his career. If this is the case, I feel Todd, Borash, and Taz could be a great working team with Todd being the inring, Borash being the "TNA Homer", and Taz adding some good color to the team. If they were to go in this direction though, they would have to make Taz the heel announcer. I think Taz could pull it off if he'd quit with the stupid jokes. Have him be that "take no shit" character he can pull off.
