im sure they show all the PPVs the wednesday after they air live in the US, which is great, because i dont like paying for PPV's. speaking of tna, gonna stick impact on even though i've already seen it, keep the ratings up and all that.

Little Jimmys everywhere. Stone Cold was noticeably drunk at the end of Raw, which was quite funny. Punk winning was amazing, R-Truth was amazing, and keeping Ryder off of Raw in his hometown was a reeeeeeeally cuntish move.

I know TNA have a bad rep for badly paying their undercard guys but still, pretty shocking.

crimson is awesome you wwe fanboy. i bet he is one of the top guys in the bound for glory series by the end. and gunner as well.
impact was good this week, gunner got over big time, but oddly there was no fortune and no crimson. there was a great x division match though.

the capitol punishment card is terrible. nothing worth even thinking about any further.

I haven't really enjoyed Wrestling in a while, I watch it out of compulsion rather than enjoyment. But anyways, Crimson just isn't a particularly good wrestler. There's nothing special about him. He's going on a Goldberg streak without squashing anyone. Pointless. Especially since it ends up showing how not very good he is.

Plus, Jeff Jarrett is right at the top of TNA along with Sting, thus rendering any credibility gone. The good TNA talent tends to languish in the midcard.

i assume after that last comment you havent seen the most recent impact? apart from anderson winning the title last week, which anyone who cares should know by now, meaning sting wont be around much longer. i wont post a spoiler here in regards to jarrett, but hes not at the top of tna.
