    TNA Entertainment?

    I just wanted to take the time to say that last night, Impact really impressed me. It wasn't because it was this super cool and awesome anti TV-PG alternative. It was because the people that shined last night were shining in a different way. Normally, when I think of TNA, I think of excellent wrestling matches. Last night had its share of some good in ring action, but the stand out moments were when they were going for the "entertainment" aspect. I guess this catches me off guard because TNA usually has more of the Bully and Brooke stuff going on, but last night they had entertainment that wasn't surrounded by Degrassi moments of having someone's dad not like the guy they are dating... Even though they are they have been adults for virtually decades.

    Austin Aries vs. Bobby Roode - They had a match that wasn't meant to be competitive in the traditional sense, but was competitive in the sense of "Who is more devious?" Aries with the leg injury and throwing up the X while Bobby was calling bullshit. Aries rakes the chest, Roode rakes the back. Thumbs to the eyes... Legs on rope, tights being pulled... The whole match was hilarious and the finish before Hardy's music hit was classic. Minus the Spear stuffed into a Last Chancery, the traditional wrestling took a back seat to a very entertaining match.

    Kenny King - The kid has charisma for sure, but the obvious set up was made out to me a lot more fun in his enthusiasm behind his backstage promos. Personally, I HATE seeing the backstage stuff. But King made the most of his "behind the scenes" moments and Christian York just added to it with his comments. It wasn't the best of the best, but King made it entertaining as hell for me.

    Aces & 8s segment - I won't throw a total spoiler out, but the guy they brought in for the segment made it very interesting. The little 5 minute segment wasn't much, but it was much more entertaining than the previous couple of weeks with their segments. His request for time to think about it was well timed and helped me to become more curious about what's next for the group.

    Daneils vs. AJ - One last time since the last time. Bad Influence are hilarious. The two have such great chemistry and Daniels even made me laugh by simply calling people Ham Sandwiches. The inring promo had me in stitches with Kaz being able to recreate AJ's speech style. The best part was when Kaz went for the AJ Springboard Forearm (dressed in AJ's gear mind you).

    The Bro Off – I am going to put this out there... I am not a fan of anyone involved in this segment (minus Tara) but Big Rob, Bigger Rob, and Jesse were excellent in this segment. Robbie E had me laughing with his dumb jock who can't count routine. Jesse has that confidence in himself that you can see come out onscreen. During his poses, I chuckled when he would vocally say "Boom" for every flex. The best part was Robbie T. For a guy who seems to be just that big bodybuilder on the roster, I rolled when his turn came. Maybe it was because my expectations were so low for these guys when the segment started, but they really managed to entertain me with this segment.

    Dang! You beat me to it. I was definately planning on posting a thread about how funny TNA was last night. Seriously...I haven't laughed that hard in one sitting of a wrestling show in I dunno how long (in a good way).

    The "Bro Off" and Kaz's AJ Styles impersonation was HILARIOUS! LOL
    The IWC is to TNA what the Republicans are to Obama: No matter how much good they do...as soon as they're shown to be less than perfect, the other claims that they just can't get anything right.

    Surely I'll see it tomorrow..but I just want to say one thing..Robbie E is improving these days...he's always decent in ring but was very poor at promos...but these days he's doing fyn..

    He has got tons of talent..he needs a lil reshuffling of the gimmick....

    WWE suppose the kid friendly..... Since when has beating up Santa Claus on Christmas Eve been kid friendly??? Some things the WWE does, should be done at certain times...
    The same can apply for TNA..... But will say TNA have stepped up their game with their shows as of late..
    We all judge others even if it isn't our place to judge, but supposedly at the end we are all judged by one!!!
    Wrestling, women and money who could ask for more???

    Accidentally running over Santa Clause is very kid friendly...It shows to always be aware around cars.

    Alright, so what if the episode was entertaining. It wasn’t TNA! It was filled with a bunch of pre-taped garbage that TNA is using to rip-off WWE. TNA is about wrestling, pure and simple. For them to go out there and try to have some jobbers in a prime spot, posing and dancing, is reminiscent of what the bikini contests featuring Mae Young were in the WWE. For TNA to abuse what could have been another 5 star match, and turn Roode – Aries 2 into a comedy match is pathetic. I blame this totally on Eric Bischoff and his “reality” wrestling crap he is trying to throw down the throats of us hardcore TNA fans!

    Seriously, they are taking perhaps the best promo that AJ Styles cut all year long and making it a mockery just to try and get Kaz and Daniels off his coattails?! If I was AJ, I’d sign with the WWE so he no longer has to deal with the abuse Hogan is giving to him. And for Kenny King to walk away from ROH only to be used in backstage segments is ridiculous. This kid should be the X-Division, TV, Tag Team, and WHC holder all at once! He is money and there is no character build needed! I have never once seen him have a bad match in TNA and this kind of “entertainment” is just furthering TNA’s downward spiral into being bankrupt in the next 10 years. If TNA wants to succeed, they need to avoid doing anything entertaining as to separate them from the WWE product…


    Oh yeah, and bring back the 6 sided ring, fire Hogan, Fire Bischoff, Fire Dixie, and fire Jeff Hardy and anyone who has ever said the three letters WWE on TV… By the way, Mike Tenay sucks and fuck you BMAC!
