Yes, but in return for Ric Flair appearing at the HoF ceremony, Vince apparently agreed to let TNA use Christian.

Makes you wonder if Senile Vince put the IC belt on Christian so he could sit back and giggle because TNA is making a big deal over one of his midcard champions.

Wrestling is actually (as crazy as it sounds) what TNA focuses on. The Knockouts division is actually full of talent and girls who wrestle.
 
2012-06-10 07:24:02 PM  
worst thing that can happen to TNA is give Christian humongous pop, showing Vince that if he main events Christian he will take TNA's audience.
Just kidding Vince will move Christian to the women's division and have him job to AJ

2012-06-10 07:36:37 PM  
While I really don't have the intestinal fortitude for weekly Impact viewings, I will likely partake in this wacky PPV. TNA seems to be putting out some decent product as of late.

In other news, I rode this roller coaster 59 times today for charity. We ended up raising $7,600 for Give Kids the World at our park. There were similar charity marathons today across the entire chain of Cedar Fair parks.

Very short time between 2004-2005. He didn't do much TV time because from what I've read he was pretty much hammered as shiat every time he showed up

Yeah, read that one too. The best one was Paul Roma and him saying Vince McMahon was jelous of him. If you don't remember who Paul Roma was don't feel bad. I had to Google image search his name and had a "Oh, it's THAT guy"..

You're confusing TNA getting better with WWE getting worse. TNA isn't any better. They hung the belt on a senior citizen and let Hogan bring his no talent Amazon daughter in to the show.

St. Louis native here. The Ortons live in St. Louis County, and Randy went to high school there (He supposedly has a house in St. Charles, though I have no idea why he'd live there, there are rich neighborhoods there but nothing remarkable, and not something a millionaire working for WWE would buy, but I digress). Every once in a great while we wrestling fans would get to talking about the old timers, and of course "Ace" and his car dealership would come up. One word is always, always, always associated with the Ortons. Assholes. Every one of them.

So to hear that Randy is a prick fits right in with the general perception around St. Louis that Bob was giant asshole too. The fact that no matter if he's a face or heel, Randy never loses his sour puss expression says a lot also.

They certainly got enough UT students to fill the seats.

2012-06-10 08:04:46 PM  
good crowd. Glad to see that.

This has the possibility to be a pretty damn good night.

I'd kill to see Christian be the challenger in Crimson's Open Challenge.
 
2012-06-10 08:04:54 PM  
We really need a "Me. Me everywhere" gif for Hogan.
 
2012-06-10 08:05:05 PM  
If I hadn't watched wrestling in 20 years I would just think a bad Hulk Hogan impersonator came out.

Same here.

What happened to the Time Tunnel set? This just looks like a knockoff of Raw's pre-HD set.

And we start right off with Hulk Hogan...
 
2012-06-10 08:05:21 PM  
And we start off with the orange goblin himself.

2012-06-10 08:09:01 PM  
Now Hulk, how can a company excel when the boss lady only cares about porking the talent? Joe-Aries deserves more than a curtain jerker
 
2012-06-10 08:09:15 PM  
X division to lead off. Sounds like what wcw used to with the luchas
 
2012-06-10 08:09:17 PM  
Joe v. Aries for the X-division title... I could enjoy this.
 
2012-06-10 08:09:21 PM  
A TITLE MATCH ON A PPV? HOLY shiat! HOGAN IS BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS!
 
2012-06-10 08:09:22 PM  
Joe vs Aries for the X Title?

this should be one hell of a match
 
2012-06-10 08:09:26 PM  
Old school? HOW ABOUT YOU PUT THE SIX SIDES IN THE THE RING!
 
2012-06-10 08:09:26 PM  
This is what they should be doing: Impact at Universal and minor PPVs and they go on the road for some of the bigger events.
 
2012-06-10 08:09:38 PM  
how does Joe qualify for the X-Divison?
 
2012-06-10 08:09:44 PM  
Saved the best for last first.
 
2012-06-10 08:09:50 PM  
Joe better be motivated. I'd think Aries would inspire him to put on his working boots, but who knows, he might be pissy about curtainjerking.
 
2012-06-10 08:09:53 PM  
So...I don't follow TNA at all. Is the X Division like their mid-carder IC/US title or more like the old Cruiserweight Title?
 
2012-06-10 08:10:09 PM  
Match cancelled, Samoa Joe already ate Austin Aries.
 
2012-06-10 08:10:10 PM  
The X-division has weight limits now? WTF?
 
2012-06-10 08:10:12 PM

2012-06-10 08:10:41 PM

2012-06-10 08:10:43 PM  
Joe is over the weight to challenge for this title but according to the commentator this makes perfect sense.
 
2012-06-10 08:10:44 PM  
I think Hemme should probably be naked for this show. It is a celebration an all
 
2012-06-10 08:10:56 PM  

Dougie AXP: how does Joe qualify for the X-Divison?


"Old school," I suppose, means "X-Division = not weight limits, but no limits."
 
2012-06-10 08:11:07 PM  

Fisty Bum: So...I don't follow TNA at all. Is the X Division like their mid-carder IC/US title or more like the old Cruiserweight Title?


It used to be like the Cruiserweight title, but without a weight limit. Back in the day, anyway. Apparently it has one now.
 
2012-06-10 08:11:23 PM  
But I thought that the X division wasn't about weight limits, it was about no limits.
 
2012-06-10 08:11:33 PM  

Fisty Bum: So...I don't follow TNA at all. Is the X Division like their mid-carder IC/US title or more like the old Cruiserweight Title?


Sorta, but.. It's hard to describe.. It's a different style in a way. It's hard to describe.
 
2012-06-10 08:11:54 PM

Takes too long for new guys to adapt. You get guys like Booker T and the Dudleyz who looked like crap when they started because they had spent 20 years working on their craft in a four sided ring.

TNA is more than a gimmick ring. ECW was more than barbed wire and chairs. WCCW was more than Freebirds/Von Erich. Attitude Era was more than swearing, etc.

That's because I don't believe TNA has a house style.

When you work WWE, You work WWE Style or you don't work for Vince long.

What Vince doesn't understand is that part of the fun is the different styles. It wasn't Piper vs. Hogan people wanted to see when the NWO was riding high... they tuned in for NWO Vignettes, and cruiserweight matches because the cruiserweights were the best thing WCW had going.

So what happened to Samoa Joe? A few years ago he was suppose to be one of the best in the world. Now it seems like he is a mid carder or worse. Is she just not as good as people thought or is TNA just screwing up again?

The two twentysomethings over Tenay's left shoulder...I had no idea going to TNA shows was now a hipster thing to do.

two words - Russo

Now that he's gone, the booking is getting so much better. Joe is looking the way Samoa Joe should look.

Yes, it is the longest world heavyweight championship streak of all time BY BOBBY ROODE.

Austin Aries kinda reminds me of WCW Chris Jericho: a cruiserweight/X division champ who is on the verge of being a superstar

2012-06-10 08:27:27 PM  
Kid Kash vs. Hernandez next.

2012-06-10 08:27:29 PM  
Kid Kash? He's still around?
 
2012-06-10 08:27:34 PM  
So glad Kash dropped the Kid Rock gimmick

They're just there enjoying it ironicly.

Why is Kid Kash-Hernandez even a match on the show? I watched the past two episodes of Impact. What's the storyline?
 
2012-06-10 08:28:02 PM  
Wow kid Kash got inked up since I last saw him in the big E

verbaltoxin:
There are athletic wrestlers in WWE. They just aren't allowed to actually wrestle until they walk out with the company's belt.


Yeah I was going to say other than Punk and Danielson at the top but I think it goes without saying. And they're not the main event even when they're competing for the top title.

And FNB is totally right. Even guys I really enjoy watching like Ziggler and Cody Rhodes don't stray too far from the WWE formula. Ziggler has some twists with his show off stuff but it's still drop kicks and elbow drops. Would people want to watch ADR (as opposed to now) if he brought back a more luchador style

The way I see it: WWE = bicycle kick
TNA = Pele kick

And this is for you, Aries!

/Christy Hemme and Lillian Garcia should wrestle it out in jell-o.

Jonny Chimpo: Why is Kid Kash-Hernandez even a match on the show? I watched the past two episodes of Impact. What's the storyline?


two wrestlers returning to active competition at the PPV

that's the storyline.
 
2012-06-10 08:28:54 PM  
That was a really good match.... Not a TNA fan in the least, it always seemed amateurish, but that was actually a good opener.
 
2012-06-10 08:29:00 PM  
That was a different power move.. I liked it.
 
2012-06-10 08:29:01 PM  
Hold on a second match already? I need a recap of some kind.
 
2012-06-10 08:29:06 PM

2012-06-10 08:32:42 PM  
What happened to Petey Williams?
 
2012-06-10 08:32:46 PM  
2 matches now, and in each of them, both wrestlers are looking strong, as well as selling for the opponent.

I'd forgotten what that was like.

I'm kinda watching, but have to be careful...

Huh...that was entertaining too.

I'm...enjoying TNA? Does not compute.
 
2012-06-10 08:34:32 PM  
Am I crazy or does the ring during Impact look smaller than the ring you would see in the WWE?

Is it just the camera angle playing tricks on me? I'm not noticing it now but I'm not sure if that's because they're not in the usual studio or because I'm not watching on TV.
 
2012-06-10 08:34:35 PM  
this one match will be longer in wrestling time compared to all matches on tomorrow night's 3 hour Raw.

Make with the promos damnit!

Jerry Lynn just doesn't age.

Then again, he's like Arn Anderson: started out older than he looked, and has since caught up age-wise.
 
2012-06-10 08:36:02 PM

It sure was. Botchamania is a big part of why I started watching wrestling again.

/And it's the only reason I know about CZW
 
2012-06-10 08:36:36 PM  
Ah, so this is the piss break.
 
2012-06-10 08:36:38 PM  
I guarantee that there is nobody sitting in the stands on the camera sides. EVERY single camera shot makes sure to never show those stands.
 
2012-06-10 08:36:59 PM  
Dear God, TNA desperately needs a new costumer. Those sweaters were ugly when my mother used to make them in the 1960's.
 
2012-06-10 08:37:05 PM  
Was there a "si si si si si si" chant during that second match?
 
2012-06-10 08:37:09 PM  
Under 40 minutes in, already have the entrances done for the third match of the night.

It sounded like Christy called them Rummy and Rummy T.

A Bischoff on the screen? Time for an Orton.
 
2012-06-10 08:37:26 PM  
Two Zack Ryder knockoffs vs. Bischoff's brat and D-Von? I think our hot streak of matches just ended.

I was disappointed when he was released. Hanging with Steiner might have been a bad career move.

There are and there aren't. They've showed a couple of wide shots. It looks like they set it up like the Impact Zone. There are about five rows on the floor and only the first couple of rows of the upper level. Almost everyone camera-side is in the lower bowl.
 
2012-06-10 08:40:52 PM  
Oh, it looks like Madison Rayne may have picked up one of AJ's WWE scripts.

I'm still mad at the Los Angeles King Flyers of Philadelphia in Anaheim County


ehh. they aren't taking chances and NJD figured that out. LA been playing to "not lose". but they fail at not playing to win.

even Philly East took 3 games to finish the Penns after being up 3-0.

maybe this is their way of paying homage.

2012-06-10 08:41:29 PM  
At least they're not making Bischoff look like superman or something. He's taking bumps and selling while saving the TV Champ for the hope spot and comeback. Good booking so far.
