Yeah Tyrus(Ethan Carter's bodyguard and formerly Brodus Clay in WWE) is a horrible wrestler, also said to be clumsy and dangerous in the ring which is likely why he was cut from WWE. He's fine in a bodyguard role but please keep him out of the ring.

Not sure I'm liking all these makeshift tag-teams vying for a shot at the belts, just once again highlights the lack of proper teams in TNA.

Hopefully Aries and Bully will return but both have decent money making options outside of both TNA and WWE so I would say it's 50/50 at best.

I read a report saying the last pre-taped Impact airs on November 19th I think and then the rest of the year will consist of recap episodes as TNA have no new footage recorded nor do they have any arenas booked to run Impact episodes for the remainder of 2014. This is terrible organisation and another blatant money saving measure. Can't be good for the talent roster who now have no TNA dates to work until the UK tour.

When I think of all the Tag Teams that used to be at TNA, and in truth could STILL be at TNA; Motor City Machine Guns, Generation Me, Bad Influence, LAX, The British Invasion; to be honest, this is ONE reason WHY I used to spit fire at TNA because they literally, literally had it all and pissed it away because of bad management decisions and two selfish pricks

When Dixie Carter THREATENED the fans that if she heard one more chant of "Fire Russo" then she would fire someone else, well, the writing was on the wall. The fans were telling her, in no uncertain terms, what they did NOT want but instead of taking it on board and doing something constructive about it, she instead threatened them.

In my opinion, I think TNA will only truly survive; (in the sense they again become a viable ALTERNATIVE to WWE); if they manage to get someone to buy out Panda Energy's controlling shares, someone whom has a vested interest in Pro-Wrestling and the Company expandng and making a positive name for itself again - so that would be a firm NO to Bischoff and Hershey.

Other than that, TNA might survive JUST because they have a TV deal on a Network, but they're  far from being viewed as a viable alternative to the WWE anymore.

Plenty to enjoy about the return such as the debut of Josh Matthews, every title being defended and talking segments kept lower than normal. Nice brawl to start the show too.

The show definately missed the departed Bully Ray and it would have been nice to have seen Magnus and Bram.

I don't see the point of two heel factions on the same show too.

Agree TNA is missing Bully Ray, hopefully he will return in the near future now a TV deal is secured.

It was a decent show, my only real complaint is that everything still seemed much the same despite the promise of a rebooted product, I was expecting several new talents, fresh storylines and a completely new look.

I don't mind the now larger stable that was formed by MVP on the show, but I know TNA will get criticised for doing another NWO style group. At least this time it's not filled with jobbers that nobody cares about like Aces & Eights was.

Think Bram and Magnus lucked out due to lack of time.

Good episode again, EY as a heel is miles better than his tired comedic face persona, plus it's easier to take him seriously in this role, decent match he had with Roode although surprised to see Young get the pinfall win without assistance.

It was definitely a pro heel show with Samoa Joe and Low-Ki also scoring big wins over top faces.

Great match between the Hardys and the Wolves. The ending segment saw MVP and his new extended entourage swerve on Lashley who said he wanted no part of the group resulting in what I assume is a Lashley face turn, TNA have done a great job of building Lashley as credible main event force but his mic-skills are still horrible, his promos need to be kept very short and sweet or better still non-existent.

Bobby Lashley In TNA should have been kept babyface instead of being turned back into a bland face.

Heels were made to look as strong as i've seen on any wrestling show in years.

Good to see the
Magnus & Bram Partnership spoke about to Tenay.

I feel like an idiot not noticing there was messages in this thread from this year. I checked earlier and it said "2009". Must have been a glitch. TNA has come a long way from what it was and I'm proud of them. Although they're in a dark period of just barely hanging on, they're delivering amazing shows week in and week out ever since Slammiversary XII in June, 2014. After all the years I heard of negative this and that about TNA; I decided to watch it myself and I couldn't have picked a better time to do it, because Summer 2014 was literally the "Turning Point". LOL

Even though they're suffering, they have gained some very important life-lines, like a network that actually advertises them and loves them. I think TNA's got a bright future now, it's just a matter of getting out of the pit, covering it and rebuilding the empire!

Why did I start in June might you ask? WWE, that's why. WWE's did nothing but push me away in the Summer and thanks to them; I started watching TNA. I hope more fans stop watching so they realise they need to change their stuff 'cos right now they're too complacent. They have a few good things here and there, but nothing that deserves them of their current status as the #1 wrestling company in the world.
