some major spoilers are floating around from the latest impact tapings. title changes and injuries, apparently. no idea who or what, and i intend to keep it that way until it airs.

Same as last week, the week before and every week prior. Hulk Hogan put himself over and shat on everything else.

I'm amazed people still watch TNA.

I gave up on it a long, long time ago.

despite some questionable choices, the in ring product is far better than it is in WWE.

also, they're doing more and more tapings on the road, which is great, and also pushing young talent properly.

I just read that the Impact after Bound For Glory, which had their best ratings ever had in two hours 7 minutes and 6 seconds of actual wrestling. I know WWE is bad for it, but jeez. That takes the non-action biscuit.

yeah, it was pretty short on wrestling. but hey, it's still better than smackdown every week and was as good as raw that week. it was really just setting up new storylines, and tbf the first raw after wrestlemania is usually shit

This is what TNA fans actually believe.

Exactly.

This weeks smackdown was brilliant. Progressed lots of different stories and had loads of actual wrestling.

smackdown is never, ever good. their world champion cant talk and he cant wrestle, and the last number 1 contender wasnt much better :lol:

some people will never acknowledge that TNA arent doing everything wrong though. the product is far from perfect but it's getting better, with younger talent getting pushed. 3 of the champions have never held a major title before (5 if you include miss tessmacher and anarquia)
wwe have 1, evan bourne.
hogan will be off TV very soon, possibly bischoff as well. sting is out of the ring for now, steiner isnt doing anything, kurts training for the olympics and jarrett is where he belongs, mid card. TNA is in the middle of a major improvement.

Not really wrestling, but I met Randy Couture.

I almost gave up on tna as it felt like a chore to watch but Bound for Glory was really good, a total trainwreck but entertaining as fook!

Fingers crossed its a new era as imo tna havent had a single good ppv in months, infact, I cant remember what good ppv tna has had before Bound for Glory.
IMO it could be in my top 5 ppvs of the year.

I really thought youse all gave it to much praise but Destination X was the last above average TNA pay per view.

impact was great. really all raw has to interest me now is punk and the nash/triple h feud. found myself falling asleep before the main event the last few weeks. impact, however, has only improved since BFG. excellent ending especially, the few promos were good and the x-division match with kid kash being a dick on commentary was great, good ending as well. and very little bischoff and flair and no hogan, who is being kept off TV so as to not overshadow the younger talent they're pushing.

Watching Smackdown now and it opens with a GREAT street fight match between Orton and Cody. This is PPV calibre match.

Aye I really enjoyed Smackdown this week, which is beyond rare for me.

Speaking of TNA, I present you all with this for a chuckle...

EDIT: While i'm here, do people actually like Dolph Ziggler? I just can't bring myself to give a shit about him. Normally when someone does the whole "i'm amazing" thing like he does when he yells "I'm too good at this" or whatever, I either get angry or think yeah he's so right. With Ziggler I just think "that's nice" and skip through his match against Kofi Kingston that he has every week forever. There's just nothing that great about him, bar a fairly natural ring ability.
