The layout seemed to hinder the matches, esp the xdivision match but here's a brief round up for you!

intro - hogan going off script and saying the 4sides is there for good and there will be more changes coming soon, lots of boos and a we want six sides chant too, which the commentators seemed to ignore...

amazing red vs brian kedrick - match of the night although it was impact quality, lots of the usual fast spots but with the 4sides you could tell red wasnt comfortable. kendrick looked fairly good in it though.

val venis vs daniels - venis had a lot of nice locks and holds in this match truth be told but slipped on a turnbuckle, daniels was like red and at times actually ran for one of the diagonal tunbuckles out of habit

tara vs odb - i actually cant remember anything about this match it was that forgettable and i dont think it went to a third fall except brooke hogan being in the front row...

tag team belt match - probably second best match although was impact quality, hernandez didnt get much offense in mind, ending came from nowhere and brutus botched it by falling before morgan's kick even connected

wolfe vs pope - pope got 0wned in this, very clinical match with pope getting pretty much zero offense in. wolfe's style in this match was mostly ground based similar to regal, worth watching truth be told

beer money vs the band - hall came down looking awful and assaulted a planted fan, xpac didnt look too bad tbh but match was mostly awful sadly and im a big beer money mark!

kennedy vs abyss - odd opponent for abyss and the match didnt make any of them look too good sadly, very slow paced with a few bursts of "not shit"

aj vs angle - match on impact the week before was waaaaaay better, this is where the 4sided ring showed it's limitations, they both tried to make the best of it but neither could get more than three or four decent spots out of it. imo give them 20mins in six sides and it would have been an early MOTY candidate.

overall the event was bad/awful, no samoa joe, 3d, suicide, homicide, foley, raven, beautiful people etc, hell there werent even any gimmick matches!! their roster is expanding far too much and these changes will drive the longtime fans away imo.
but if hogan and bishoff can get one over vince then they'll be happy at least...

is anyone here going to the uk tour? the listings are on the tna site, no lashley, rhino, jay lethal or beautiful people sadly :(

Apparentally Edge is expected to return at the Royal Rumble. This makes me happy. And has Jeff Hardy actually appeared in TNA since 4th Jan?

Hogan is literally insane, I wish one of his cronies had the balls to tell him he's an idiot. They really need to remember what actually happened to WCW in the end.

I heard in an interview with JB that they're still using the 6 sided ring on the UK tour

Last year you could buy ringside on the night which really annoyed a lot of people and I reckon it'll be the same this year as theyve done pretty much zero promotion!

aye i saw that, least they could do after not having lashley there, or alot of the roster for that matter!

In america they have $35 ringside seats with a free dvd, oh and $15 t-shirts too :(

First TNA ppv with Hogan, goes on for 2 weeks about giving the young talent a shot, then doesn't put 70% of th eroster on the PPV instead replacing them with the old guard and new acquisitions, yep way to push the talent Hulk :x

To be fair, thats what hogan does anyways.

Although, if the angle that they are trying to push is that the traditional tna roster is pushed aside for hogan and his cronies, which I think they are, they do need to establish that and actually push the 'new' guys in order for there to be something to battle against.

its a shame that it means having to watch old timers to achieve this but leats it'll get them some attention with some big names.

I just hope they push the women's division because they have some real quality on that roster

I'm not interested in wrestling one little bit but the first name on the presenter profiles list is one of my mates.

You name a wrestler, he's probably met them at least once. He was once even flown out to Madison Square Garden just to watch a night of it (VIP access, aftershow etc naturally). Apparently, he makes wrestling fans quite jealous

I've been reading today that he might not actually have a TNA contract, and appeared as a one-off to get back at the WWE for having CM Punk say things about his arrest

I just watched the self destruction of the ultimate warrior on youtube.

I have to say, I think a lot less of him having seen that.
