A couple of the best matches i've seen recently have both been in TNA and both at TNA's Final Resolution...

the Full Metal Mayhem match - Motor City Machine Guns vs Generation Me

TNA Television Title Match - Doug Williams vs AJ Styles (just the fact that Doug used the rolling chaos theory outside the ring and then finished AJ with his own styles clash)

tna is much better than wwe for matches at times, imo they have better wrestlers, but hogan and bischoff need to go and the storylines need to improve. admittedly i like the idea of immortal, but its not working as well as it could

TNA have better wrestlers full stop,and they let them use the skills they have, WWE is a very big money making company,so have to sanitise their product to keep the guys healthy and on the road

Slowly catching up on all my missed shows, done the Slammys (Boring), done Smackdown (Some damn entertaining matches) and doing Superstars now.

Where Darren Young just jobbed to Zack Ryder.

I don't know what Darren Young has done to piss off WWE bookers/writers/whatever but dear god, it must have been something bad.

I can't wait for Punk Vs Cena :D

Also, the booing for Vicki on Raw was monumental, heel heat like that is a once in a lifetime thing. Even she was having to try not to laugh.

SPOILERS PROBABLY AHEAD AT SOME POINT.
I'll just be editing this post with my TLC reactions.

"For the first time, Divas are going through tables"

Let's just forget everything the Dudley's did.

EDIT: "I don't think I've ever seen a woman go through a table"

Oh come on guys. Really? I can think of several immediately. So can everyone else under the age of 12.

I just realised that's the target audience, but fuck you.

Good comment out of Striker though. "With all respect to Francine and Beulah, these women are about to go extreme"

EDIT: Damn good match though. It's nice to see a half decent divas match for once.
That double sharpshooter was fucking nuts, and Beth's botched fall out of the ring was fucking horrible to watch.

EDIT: "Trust me, I used a theasarus. I don't even know what those words mean"
I fucking love Santino. Every single week, I love him more.

Ah, they must be trying to cement Gabriel as a heel. He's got a beard now.
Plus Santino actually being allowed to wrestle more and more is cool.

EDIT: never been a huge Morrison fan, nor a Sheamus one, but god damn if these mathces between the two haven't been fucking ace.

"I am the ghost of Christmas present. And I quote. Your acts against Randy Orton last night, although vintage, were nefarious"

Oh god. This is the best Raw ever.

Just me, or has the quality shot up recently? Except for the Slammy's episode obviously.

EDIT: "I just hugged it out with the "We hate Cena" guy. We're good"

This entire fucking bit is amazing. I wish Cena could wrestle so I could like him more. Because everything else he does is gold.

But I gotta agree with CM Punk. Cena does some pretty grim things considering he's meant to be face.
It started with the stuff to Batista earlier in the year, and last night was pretty brutal too.

EDIT: All in all, just glad they're moving to a more 'shoot' sorta style for this stuff.

Yeah, it absolutely has shot up in quality. Unlike Smackdown, which for some reason I really have to force myself to try and concentrate on, I lap up raw like a thirsty cat with a bowl o' salmon flavour milk.
