    Re: TNA Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread 2017 (Now With More Canadian Bacon!)

    Yeah I was very disappointed with the show last night to be honest. I mean I dug Eli Drake's Comedy during the show, but their wasn't enough Wrestling for my taste. Everything I thought was going to happen is going to happen next week like Patron vs Impact, James Storm vs Texano, Sydal vs Dux, Ishimori vs. Hakim Zane and I believe the Knockouts Title Match starts next week as well. Why not have some of those Matches this week? The Eli Drake's Turkey Trout had it's moment including Josh and JB tearing up Justice and Bahh during Commentary, but nothing came from the Match outside of who knew a food fight at the end. It still pisses me off Garza JR who is very injured is still being allowed to work with one arm.

    In terms of Wrestling last week's Episode was way better, but I think you can skip the past two weeks with next week being a show needing to see for sure.

    I'm not sure if the Knockouts tourney to crown a champion will start next week as well, but it would be in their best interest to do so for sure.

    Theirs loads on tap for Impact tonight, sorry I didn't post it sooner or yesterday, but alot of you don't watch Impact the day of usually a few days after so I waiting to see if anyone would be interested in watching in live. Anyways Patron vs Impact is going to be a hell of a Match, if they can capture the intensity of them fighting backstage they'll get the job done. Don't forget the Knockouts Tourney to determine the new Champion starts tonight, and I kinda bummed about it considering Taya isn't involved. Taya vs Rosemary final would of been perfect to do, with Taya winning, but we'll have to wait to see that in the future. I'm happy to see we have two X-Division Matches on tap as well, I personally like Ishimori from his work with Noah and I hope he gets more opportunities to show how good he can be with the upper talent in the division. Texano vs Storm might be a good watch as well, wished it was a Street Fight because these two like to brawl and beat on their opponents, but both are true professionals they'll give us a Match we'll be talking about I hope.

    Seems a stacked card for a TV show...which means there's going to be some short matches...unless they finally drop all the filler crap they enjoy putting out.

    Re: TNA Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread 2017 (Now With More Canadian Bacon!)

    Overall I thought the solid one and their were so solid to good Matches throughout the night. It all started with the first of the Three Ways to determine the new Knockouts Champion and it was with Van Ness, Rayne, and Spinelli. I don't know how Rayne got into this, she is apart of Staff for the company now, but with so few ladies I guess she was just a plug for the Match. Spinelli has some potential saw her Match with Allie and I thought that Match was good, and she looked strong here, but I'm shocked Van Ness won this. She's been a Comedy Character, even know she is a good enough Wrestler to get it done before all that craziness she likes to use. Still let's see where this goes for her, because it's hard to take her seriously, when she looks like that on a weekly basis.

    The build of Ishimori continues on his quest to the X-Division title and it seems he's going to be Lee's new dance partner after he was attacked after the Match with Zane. Alot of people don't know or remember Zane is the fella who won Global Forged, and you might not want to see him lose on his debut Match, but Ishimori is more known than him and it makes sense to have him win. The people are getting behind Ishimori and don't worry Zane you showed some promise and this X-Division needs more of it, and it plans to ever get back to the old days.

    We later got to see Sami Callihan vs Randy Myers and from what he saw the clips it was a entertaining bout. LAX wants Sami and oVe dead on demand and they are going to be fits, because Sami no animal any of them have before. I look forward to what LAX to get back on top, because they might be talking big right now, but the confidence is dimming within them.

    I was a little disappointed with Texano and Storm, it was solid, but I though with two respected veterans of Wrestling that they could of gave us a way better Match. I've seen Texano tear it up with Lucha Underground and Storm in the past had plenty of quality Matches in his own right, this Match of them of all hurt my soul with the way it turned out. It seems were going to get Storm/Moose vs Lashley/Lambert next week yeah Lambert is going either hold his own, or this Match is going to be really bad if Lambert is in the ring more than a few mins during the Match.

    Sydal vs Dux was around the same quality wise as Ishimori/Zane earlier in the show, and I laughed when the Commentary Crew said Dux to the effect he is the Canadian Sensation and I'm like does Canada even know who he is? EC3 vs Sydal for the Grand Title next week I believe and we will see how that goes, because alot of what EC3 said about him how he doesn't have that killer instinct was something I heard before about him, wonder if that killer instinct comes out next week for him.

    Patron vs Impact I was really happy with the way he came out for the Main Event. It was truly back and forth I thought either guy could get the win over the other. See what happens Impact when you give two good Wrestlers time to work this is the result you get, do more of that please. I didn't even mind Drake getting involved and how it ended was dope with Impact upside down, lifting Patron over the ropes than hitting his Starship Pain for the 1..2..3. Drake hates both guys and he made his feelings known before, and Petey was fucking over as fuck coming out to save the day. That Canadian Destroyer was sick, and that might be the biggest guy I've seen him do the move against over the years. I guess Petey/Impact vs Drake/Patron next week, that could be a very good Main Event back to back hopefully.

    BREAKING DOWN TODAY'S IMPACT MANAGEMENT ADDITIONS, DEPARTURES COMING AND MORE IMPACT WRESTLING NEWS

    By Mike Johnson on 2017-12-05 12:57:00

    Lots going on within Impact Wrestling today obviously:

    *As noted in today's announcement, Scott D'Amore and Don Callis will be the top executives within Impact going forward, as Executive Vice Presidents. D'Amore had pretty much been Ed Nordholm's right hand man in recent months and now has the title and power to match it. Callis will officially start with the company on 1/1/18. The trio will be overseeing all aspects of the business of Impact as well as the creative flow and direction.

    *Callis had been working as The Executive Director, President and CEO for ‎Manitoba Trade and Investment Corporation over the last seven years. Callis intends to remain with New Japan Pro Wrestling as an announcer, but obviously that will depend on whether he can balance the two sides, especially if New Japan ramps up the amount of events that require English language commentary. New Japan had been preparing for his exit but as of today, believe he's going to be remaining. Impact wants a working relationship with New Japan obviously, but this does add fuel to the fire to the rumor of an NJPW/Impact/ROH link up. There's no word yet whether Callis will appear on camera for Impact, but I'd be shocked if he doesn't. He's always been a great antagonist and announcer, he's going to be at the tapings and it would allow him to wear another hat for the company.

    *One source has stated that Johnny "Impact" Hennigan and Taya have both signed deals with Impact that would allow them to continue to be utilized on Lucha Underground when that series films its next season.

    *There is an expectation that there will be additional talents exiting over the next month or so, including some top of the card names. There is expected to be a far more larger contingent of Canadian-based talents going forward.

    *The word making the rounds today among the talents in the company is that John "Big" Gaburick will be officially leaving the company at the first of the year. After taking over the company, Anthem had kept Gaburick on as a consultant and he was working at the TV tapings, but he was there more as insurance in case the Jeff Jarrett regime didn't work out. When Jarrett exited, Gaburick stepped in to assist and transition things, but mostly on the production side of things as the creative direction had been one that D'Amore and Sonjay Dutt had been responsible for. With D'Amore and Callis now in place, Gaburick will be exiting, which he had already been preparing for as he had been working on outside projects before the Jarrett situation led to him taking an increased role in recent months.

    *Dutch Mantel is also expected to leave the company at the onset of the year. One source stated he has already been let go, but we haven't confirmed that to be the case. He hadn't been brought to the November tapings and lost his position of power when Jarrett exited the company.

    *There are plans for Impact to try and run more consistently in 2018. What that has been described to me as if running TV tapings more often (perhaps taping 4-5 week worth of TV at a time, as opposed to 10 weeks over a long stretch) as well as doing some live house show events in smaller venues if they can be cost-effective. The hope is to run in both the United States and Canada. The January TVs will remain in Orlando. There's talk of taping in March in Canada, possibly Windsor, a market D'Amore knows very well from his years of promoting Border City Wrestling.

    *Sonjay Dutt is still in the mix in terms of creative and producer responsibilities. None of today's changes are a sign he's on the outs at all.

    *Jeremy Borash, Jimmy Jacobs, Gail Kim and Abyss will be working as producers as well and have input into creative discussion and direction, but the final calls will be made by D'Amore, Callis and Nordholm.

    *Production will remain in Nashville at Skyline Studios, where there is also some space where office work can be done as needed. As noted, all of the support staff from the Nashville office completed working for the company last week.

    *Impact exec Bob Ryder is, by all accounts, still with the company and believed to be working from home going forward.

    Happy to see Taya and Mundo still going to be with Impact going forward, so come back already Taya I don't want to wait till January that you talked about. Interesting that they will be allowed to be used with Lucha Underground for Season 4 hmm LU let's do a deal with Impact to bring in talents like Pentagon Dark, Mil Muertes, Catrina and Ivelisse please Impact!

    Re: TNA Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread 2017 (Now With More Canadian Bacon!)






    It's another Thursday and I'm here to tell everyone what's to come for Impact this week. I guess the big Main Event is going to be Moose/Storm vs Lambert/Lashley. I'm actually excited even though Lambert probably isn't going to be in the Ring like that, don't know what his "Wrestling experience" is over the years, but he deserves a good beating and I think the fans are going to love it when it happens. I don't see Storm and Lashley winning the odds are not in their favor if the rest of the American Top Team show up. Time to step up Sydal: EC3 considers Matt Sydal beneath him as a talent, and he doesn't think Sydal has the killer instinct to be successful in their business. Sydal has the chance to change that perception people not just EC3 have on him over the years.

    The Second Three Way to determine who gets to the finals to see who is the next Knockouts Champion is tonight as well. I'm interested to see whether it might be Allie or Rosemary, we might get an upset tonight with Allie maybe facing Laurel Van Ness next week to see who is the new champ. Lastly Ishimori got mugged by Lee and his Cult and this week he gets one of the Cult members inside the ring. Caleb might be a stain in the mat after what Ishimori does to him this week.

    Re: TNA Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread 2017 (Now With More Canadian Bacon!)

    So, it took me a while to decide to comment on this discussion, since I haven't watched any Impact TV tapings since April(give or take). But with the recent news of the two men being named Executive Vice Presidents, I feel a sense of relief because I believe in Don Callis and Scott D'Amore. So, I feel that now it's time for me to weigh in on my meaningless pros and cons on how I feel about Anthem TNA GFW Impact Wrestling. I jest, folks.

    I want to take you back and give you perspective on my history with TNA. In 2005, I was in fifth grade. Out of my long and incredible list of two friends that I hung out with every day at school, only one of them had Fox Sports Net. Every week he would tell me about this TNA Wrestling. Keep in mind, I had no idea that anything other than WWE existed after they put WCW and ECW out of business. So when my friend came to school telling me that Scott Hall and Kevin Nash were kicking ass in TNA, I was shocked. And then he told me about Jeff Jarrett being the NWA World Champion. Then he started telling me about how Jeff Hardy was fighting guys like Abyss and Raven for shots at the title.

    But he would also tell me about guys like Petey Williams, who had what he(and later Mike Tenay) would describe as this "sick flip piledriver" called the Canadian Destroyer. Basically, TNA was awesome. And then he started telling me about AJ Styles. AJ was awesome and he was the guy who was finally about to beat Jeff Jarrett for the NWA World Title.

    So this is where I started doing investigating and found TNAWrestling.com. They had their roster up, which at the time consisted of guys like Ron "The Truth" Killings, Kip James, BG James, Chris Harris, Shark Boy, Lance Hoyt, Chris Sabin, Sonjay Dutt, Matt Bentley, Sabu, and everyone else who would make up what, in my mind, where the glory days of TNA.

    Fast foward to October of 2005, TNA scores the Spike TV deal. And I had Spike TV. I can still remember the chills I got when I tuned into the first Impact taping on Spike TV. I can still remember the dude swinging the two white towels in the middle of the crowd. I can still remember seeing the six sided ring for the first time. I can still remember seeing AJ Styles's entrance for the first time, because he was the very first entrance of that show. He wrestled Roderick Strong in what was in my mind the greatest squash match of all time. It was put together to make AJ look phenominal, Roderick didn't exactly look like a chump, and TNA looked fucking amazing. If you haven't seen the match, here you go:







    Pay attention to the way Mike Tenay brings up the poll on their website that asked fans who they wanted to see in the first match on Spike TV. Watch the way the crowd is invested with every move. Listen to the way the commentary projects emotion into the action and, dare I say, puts over someone other than theirselves.

    This video exemplifies everything I loved about TNA. The last time I watched Impact Wrestling in April, I felt sick to my stomach as I listened to Josh Matthews talk about calling a Wrestlemania and not give a shit about what was happening in the ring. The talent is still good, but there are so many things production-wise that need to be done away with and/or changed.

    The common quote I hear from people in the business is "I want to see TNA do well, I don't want to see anyone go out of business." I'm ashamed to say that for a long time, I've wanted Impact Wrestling to die because of what it's done to the memories I have of the real TNA, like what you see in that video above. To me, TNA was never a sexual innuendo that people make it out to be here in 2017. TNA was ALWAYS Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, where AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Christian Cage, Sting, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, Beer Money, and all the guys who made that company what it was. In 2017, I've been ASHAMED to see what has happened to what was for a long time, my favorite part about wrestling. In turn, the biggest part of my life for a couple of years. Wrestling has always been my passion, and to see what this company has become has made me sick.

    So, with all that being said. I can now say wholeheartedly that I hope nothing for the best for Impact Wrestling. Scott D'Amore was there for the glory days and had a big hand in all of it. Don Callis definitely thinks he means more to wrestling than what he actually does, but I'll overlook that and focus on the positives, being that he knows what he's doing and is responsible for Jericho vs. Omega on January 4.

    I really hope Impact can get some sort of new TV deal with a better platform than Pop TV, because it's not even available to me without the horrendous half-screen TV Guide scroll. But, I suppose let's put the pants on one leg at a time. I hope this wasn't too boring, but my God I've needed that therapy session for a long time.



    I hate Josh Matthews.

    Re: TNA Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread 2017 (Now With More Canadian Bacon!)

    Alot of TNA original fans like myself feel the same way you do, wanting to have that greatest back again for the company. WE want to see the glory days return to the company, but as I watch Impact every week I have to bury those thoughts further down the mind and enjoy the product and hope one day it reaches that mountain again. I think theirs enough positivity going on with Impact right with their flaws of course of lack of depth on the roster in certain divisions among other things, but I think this company is going in the right direction overall. I hope don't hit a Glacier though like a Titanic because if they do, they aren't going to recover.

    For me, that Glacier(I saw what you did there) was January 4, 2010 when they went live on Monday nights. Hasn't been the same since that night.

    Oh yeah I remember that and the people apart of their Creative etc like Hogan and Eric Bischoff at the time of them coming in I was like great this is going to get people to want to check out the show, but quickly I found they were the biggest harm to the company than ever before. I remember when they brought in talent from WWE and the past like Val Venis and the Nasty Boyz and I was like what the fuck is this shit? How about let's build up the new and young talent you have in your company now, not these old farts who are passed their primes two times over. TNA even in 2010 I thought were good when it came to talent look at the Roster back then

    https://web.archive.org/web/20100301...perstar-roster

    Over time they were hire talent let's say are below what the talent they had a few years prior. I think the first Impact under the new regime Styles vs Angle Main Evented didn't they for the Impact World Title? I remember watching that Match and show and going yeah old guys coming back, to geez not these fools, to holy shit Styles and Angle just knocked it outta the park. What's funny the show would eventually find out they weren't ready for the big leagues, and even after that they tried multiple times changing the timeslot and thank goodness they keep it on Thursday.

    https://web.archive.org/web/20100301...perstar-roster

    Over time they were hire talent let's say are below what the talent they had a few years prior. I think the first Impact under the new regime Styles vs Angle Main Evented didn't they for the Impact World Title? I remember watching that Match and show and going yeah old guys coming back, to geez not these fools, to holy shit Styles and Angle just knocked it outta the park. What's funny the show would eventually find out they weren't ready for the big leagues, and even after that they tried multiple times changing the timeslot and thank goodness they keep it on Thursday.


    Except when the finish of AJ/Angle was the Montreal Screwjob. Completed with Angle spitting on Hogan and everything. It was trash.

    Re: TNA Impact Wrestling Discussion Thread 2017 (Now With More Canadian Bacon!)

    I'm behind on TNA by a couple of weeks, I think. Have I missed much?

    I think the last episode I watched was when Johnny and Del Rio had that brawl at the end of the episode. I may have watched the episode after that one though- not sure :/

    Outside of the Lambert/Lashley vs Moose/Storm Match that I thought was going to be better even with Lashley working the whole Match like I thought, it might be time to break away from this feud now. Ishimori keeps impressing me as a talent, you guys gotta check out his Noah work, he just seems primed to win the X-Division title. Truthfully the Cult of Lee is not working at all, and it's doing nothing for any of the guys rolling with Lee. I think the oVe/LAX/TDT confrontation came off damn awesome in my opinion. Sami is a perfect mouth piece yelling or not to get this team over a heel team now, rather than a face that wasn't working for them. Did Konnan hit a fan by accident with the Kendo Stick he tried to hit towards Sami? I swear when he let go of it it went into the Crowd, why did he do that with the risk that it could hit someone and you guys would of been deep shit. If I would of been hit, yeah someone is getting me loads of merch asap lol.

    The Knockouts Three Way came off pretty well and I wasn't shocked Rosemary won the Match. Even in a loss Allie came off like a strong contender in her right to win the title one day. So it's Laurel Van Ness vs Rosemary next week, is it possible we get the return of Taya to screw over Rosemary? The Grand Championship Match once again fails to have any flow to it for me, they just need to strap the Judging per rounds then, rather than just have the Judging at the end. I would say their was a solid Main Event with Petey/Impact vs Drake/Adonis. Sometimes you put money in the Register and sometimes you get a receipt lol. I don't know what they might do with these three guys feuding three way I guess, but Drake should retain the title I bet.

    I agree with HoHo
    The Grand Championship round/judging/system just doesn't work

    Highlights of the show for me were the 3 way Knockouts Match and the Lashley/Lambert vs Storm/Moose Match

    Low point was when those 2 Lumberjacks came out to confront OVE
    The only thing they were missing to make them come off as a Canadian Stereotype is Maple Syrup

    Yeah the two Lumberjacks I've seen wrestle Smash Wrestling, but they were over with the Crowd on Thursday. They'll probably get a chance to show what they can do on Thursday if they face oVe.

    Tomorrow it's going down hard on Impact Wrestling. We are going to a crown a new Knockouts Champion and it will either be Rosemary or Laurel Van Ness. I just have a feeling Taya is going to return and screw her over, because it's too obvious right now to make her Champion, and if you give the Title to Laurel it's a lose lose. Van Ness is a average Wrestler and she's a Comedy Wrestler so it's hard to take her seriously as a talent in the division right now.

    Another Match I'm looking forward to is the Six Man Tag Team Main Event. Patron is going to need to work with Petey Williams and Johnny Impact two guys he doesn't like, to get a piece of Drake especially. I wonder who will be the mystery partner for Drake and Adonis?

    The oVe/LAX Sitdown is going to be chaos those two don't like to handle things with their mouths or minds, rather their fists and it's going to break loose within a minute or two bet on it. Moose and Storm is calling on ATT what else is new they are going to get mugged, they better bring backup.
