Looks like WWE officials are starting to warm to Long Island Iced Z :D

When Hogan and Bischoff came in that was one of the things they insisted on. (I think)

When Hogan and Bischoff leave, hopefully that's one of the things that gets changed back.

i actually like hernandez, although not the group he's stuck with, except sarita. but everyone knows if you cant do a move safely you dont do it. it may well have been an accident that wont happen again, but he nearly injured douglas williams as well...

God TNA are pissing me off lately! JR is right, they need to be their own brand instead of the constant digs at WWE.

Sacrifice wasn't too bad mind, I'll give em that. It was good compared to the last few ppvs but still nowhere near as good as anything WWE deliver on tv.
I can see by that look that you have in your eyes, you came here for metal to fight and to die!

Macho Man was awesome, one of my favourites as a kid. Very very sad news.

great way for tna to start their wrestling matters campaign, having a fat guy who cant wrestle for shit win the x division title. i bet sting keeps his title at slammiversary as well, just so they can have 2 champions who cant wrestle for shit and whose matches i inevitably pay no attention to.

Why do you hate sting so much? Admittidly, hes getting up there in years but he still has decent matches and has been apart of some classics. Always liked sting, mainly from his matches with Vader.

because he isnt impressing me at all now. regardless of what hes done in the past. i was a big hogan fan as a kid, i still want him to fuck off. i'll admit, hes getting better recently, but im still only having his matches on in the background usually

I only ever have Smackdown on in the background actually.. And Raw a bit more I must say. I'm getting to the point where i'm not even that bothered watching it. I don't recall enjoying it any less than I do right now, each and every episode is exactly to a strict mould with barely any exception. I've in fact stopped watching the 'main event' on each show because I know what will happen and I just don't care.

Managed to sit through an entire episode of TNA Impact tonight. Still way too much talking- in a three hour how they managed 4 matches? And three of those were nothing.
Battle Royal wasn't bad, mind.
