Fairplay to  Dixie Carter In TNA for taking the table bump for the benefit of a storyline.

Magnus & Bram Partnership i'm really enjoying. Surprisingly thought it looks like Bram is being built as the star of the team.

Bully Ray In TNA quiting is disapointing when he's been pushed more than anyone in recent months.

That was a nasty looking bump Dixie took through the table so like Admin said fair-play to her for doing it for the good of the storyline.

Great match between the Hardys and Team 3D, TNA have really milked the nostalgia at these New York tapings but they've done so with good results.

Thankfully Ryklon(Zeke) and Snitsky were only used for I think three or four shows and that was it, no permanent deal seems to be forthcoming for them, for the purposes of a short-term angle their involvement was fine and made storyline sense.

I'm also enjoying the Magnus/Bram partnership but it does seem to be something of a fall from grace for Magnus who not so long ago was the top heel in the company, he obviously failed to impress as a headliner.

The feud between MVP and co and EY, Roode and Aries has been enjoyable and has produced some good matches to date, Lashley continues to dominate as champion and is pretty much being booked similar to Lesnar in WWE.

Was the Hardcore Justice edition of Impact this week, decent show and every match had a hardcore theme but unlike the Destination X show this taping seemed to lack a PPV feel, not having the World title defended didn't help, the fresh buzz of the New York setting is waring off now as well but that was unavoidable.

Bram and Abyss had another carnage filled brawl that I enjoyed. This was the kind of brawl you don't see in WWE anymore.

Team 3D, the Wolves and the Hardy's cut a promo agreeing to have a match between all three teams, Kurt Angle announced it would be a series of matches with the winner of each match picking the stipulation for the next and the overall winner getting the tag-titles, should be good.

Low-Ki vs Samoa Joe for the X-Division title, again entertaining stuff.

Anderson vs Samuel Shaw in a I Quit match didn't interest me as this is a dull feud.

Great promo from MVP, this guy is gold on the mic, I like Lashley but when MVP talks he just stands there expressionless, it might as well be a mannequin stood there, at least when Heyman talks for Lesnar we see a bit of emotion and body language from Brock.

The cage main-event for the number one contendership was good but a bit of a clusterfuck with so many guys in the ring all at once, plus it would have been better to just have a World title match to close the show.

Watched a bit on Sunday, first time in years.

The Gail Kim/Taryn Terrell match was surprisingly good, some nice spots (Tiffany was a trooper for taking that neckbreaker on the steps)

MVP looked old and fat, Samoa Joe even more so. Hated the whole opening promo. Dunno why they ran it at Hammerstein Ballroom either, ECW died 13 years ago and their fans aren't original or fresh anymore.

That's all I managed. Mixed bag really.

While the product has been pretty good lately nothing TNA do seems to have any staying power, like when the New York tapings started everything had a fresh and exciting feel to it but now just a few weeks on it all feels a bit same shit different day.

The Hardys/Wolves/Team 3D series is providing decent matches but its relying heavily on nostalgia and is only a short term fix for the severely depleted tag-scene in TNA.

The X-Division is still hit and miss, aside from Samoa Joe, Austin Aries and Low-Ki there is noone attached to the division that anyone cares about.

I like Bobby Lashley and MVP but each week its the same thing, MVP cuts a promo singing the praises of Lashley while Lashley stands there silent.

I originally liked Bobby Roode as a babyface but him kissing Eric Young's ass is too much, they need to keep some of his edge not water him down into another family friendly face.

Chris Melendez in TNA is a nice touch and he seems pretty accomplished in the ring for a guy with one leg, however I have to say its a little uncomfortable watching him wrestle as you just keep wondering if his prosthetic leg will get damaged or come loose.

Jessica Havok seems a decent addition to the Knockouts ranks, a new monster heel type which is something the division has been lacking.

Not much else to say, Samuel Shaw is garbage and Gunner deserves better than this horrible storyline with him, I cringe at the thought of what will transpire now Brittany is involved as well. The whole desciples of James Storm isn't exactly gripping me with excitement, kind of reminds me of a cross between the Ministry of Darkness and Aces & Eights.

Really? I thought Storm was going for more of a MOD meets Wyatt Family kind of deal. But I agree entirely with everything said. TNA's tapings in New York felt great at first and you can tell that they were doing everything possible to make sure that each show had that feel to it, but now it seems they're back in a rut of having decent-ish programming with nothing really connecting. Maybe it's the move to Wednesday that's causing it?

Yeah you're right, the Wyatt's are a better comparison. Trouble is its just Storm brainwashing a bunch of jobbers at the moment.

The ECIII vs Rhino streetlight was pretty good, Carter looked impressive and got a descisive win, hard to see where they go with Rhino from here, can't see him being back with the company longterm.

The product is decent but nothing is original and they're relying too much on nostalgic acts, even the champion Lashley with MVP just seems like a poor man's Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.
