Not really related to your post much but I hate the way the female announcer says "Samoa Joe". Really grinds my gears. Just wanted to get that off my chest.

Sit boo boo sit.

Last nights show was pretty entertaining. with the mass brawls. However the matches itself were bad.

Joe vs red - pointless
knockouts - fit but not the best

I've lost track with TNA a little bit since they went off bravo, but I still read the results and they haven't encouraged me to start watching again.

I would keep Hogan, but only in an ambassador role, the guy seems still hugley popular. But I would have him nowhere near booking/wrestling/or even on screen.

Similarly with Bischoff, no booking powers but an on screen role as the only authority figure.

The frustrating thing with TNA is the talent is there, but woefully utilized. I would have the main eventers as follows:

AJ
Mr Anderson
Kurt Angle
Matt Morgan
RVD (providing he pulls his finger out)
Samoa Joe
Pope
And a (if possible) clean, recovered Jeff Hardy

Together with a mid card of
British Invasion
MCMG
Beer Money
Gen Me
Ink Inc
Kaz
Eric Young
Daniels
Matt Hardy
Bubba Ray
Hernandez
Abyss (although I'm not a fan)
Crimson (been getting good reviews)
The X Division (with Lethal, Homicide, Petey Williams etc rehired)

There's more than enough talent there (and I've probably missed some) for TNA to be so much better than it actually is

Styles and Joe should be 1# contenders, and maybe Matt morgan. These are still being wasted.

Rob Roode for some reason reminds me HHH, but different class..

Its time hogan, sting stepped back.

I got back from Orlando saturday morning.

Went to Impact last Tuesday.

Ok show.

That Crimson guy is a big lad.

The main event RVD vs Angle was a good match.
Good to see Velvet in the flesh, very nice.

Still cant get over how small the Impack zone is, thats after being there twice.

I have been catching TnA on challange since I got Sky plus and can tape it and watch it at my lesiure.

Despite what you lot are saying my favourate bit of Impact for the last few months have been Andersons feud with Van Dam, in their duel persuit of Sting, while keeping Hogans nose in it offering everyone the chance to be involved.

The world title picture has been great since Jeff imploded.

Don't know if anyone has seen the Destination X ppv poster. It has a photo of the six sided ring on it.

This is where the rebranding could POSSIBLY really start coming into affect.

Call me old fasioned but the six sided ring is daft gimmicky idea.

Sure bring it back for the odd pay per view, but it as random as saying every match will be in a steel cage.

Has there ever been a 12 man tag match before with the 6 sided ring? How awesome would it be 6 on 6, with all 6 of the winning team hitting a high flying move simultaneously!

Jarret in my opinion has never been main event material, but how they have handled the storyline with him and kurt and karen has been very entertaining.

you are right it is very small isnt it.

did you manage to get a decent spot, despite all the pre-show queue shenanigans

did you also get to meet any of the "regulars". funny bunch of people, although did meet a few decent folk when i went in march

The Rock.

We had to wait about an hour and a half.

You pick a ticket and the guy calls out numbers in 10's, when yours is called you go wait in line.

Got to stand very close to the front.

Didnt get to meet anyone. The meet and greet was with angle.

Good atmosphere there though. It airs next tuesday, so will have to watch, we'll definatly be on tv.

Got close to So Cal Val, I like her.

JB is a good laugh, met him when they were down in Bournemouth last year.

There were some hard core fans who probably go every week, standing close to us.

One of them was so annoying though, just shouting the same things over and over.

what was he shouting over and over? 'boring'?

when i went there were a load of rednecks who managed to push to the front in the "army veterans queue." they were all pretty annoying.

most of the people i met at the impact zone did seem to think that wrestling was "real life" which did worry me slightly.

Nah was sweep, this was TNA event not WWEwinkeye

There were 2 aussie lads that were in front of us in line, they were ok.

The "die hard's" that were there last week were mostly annoying.

Having been to both I have enjoyed TNA more.
