Opening segment with Bertie and Lashley just dragged, it didn't need to go on that long.

Konley/Dutt was an ok match, faced paced but wasn't given long enough to be anything more than ok. Trevor Lee stealing the X Division belt...ok that's different haha.

Grado is back haha...Eddie calling Grado almost American oh deary me.

8 Man Tag had too much going on too quickly, seemed a bit rushed to me. Park coming to see Grado so err where is this leading?? Not playing the visa card are they??

Sydal/Sutter is a random throw together match isn't it? Match was ok, they seem to be really invested in Sydal as he keeps getting put over, so shall see where that leads.

Super X cup is here again, So the 8 are Sami Govarra, Drago, ACH, Andrew Everett, Ishimori, Davey Richards, Desmond Xavier and Abraham...at least i've heard of most of these guys haha.

Abraham/Xavier was a very enoyable match. Again Xavier has really impressed me, and whilst I expect the winner of Ishimori/Richards to win the tournament, it would be an awesome step for Xavier if they gave him the rub.

Rebel/Sienna was ok at best. Some of Rebels moves looked a bit miss timed but i'm sure she'll grow on me and get better.....

Paige got a mention haha bet that doesn't go down well with WWE! Lashley/Patron wasn't as good as their PPV match but that's probably to be expected...Ooh here is LAX, does that mean Patron is the new member? I love Konan on the mic...well I didn't expect that one.

Watched Slammiversary and a couple of weeks of Impacts but still not enough quality to keep me interested. There's a few guys on the roster I like but there's far too much I'd happily skip.

Will keep a eye on developments with the rebranding and any new recruits they may bring in and perhaps give it another watch down the line.

I watched the entire episode yesterday, this product stick out like a swollen thumb. Everything is just awful. I really tried giving it a chance, but after 5 straight weeks, i cant bear to watch any more.... if it wasn;t for ACH being signed to them, i wouldve stopped watching it last week.

Yeah more bad than good, at least with Raw and Smackdown you can filter through and skip the bits that don't interest you and probably still end up watching over half the show. With Impact if I do that I probably end up watching about 10-15 minutes! As I said though I'll keep a eye on things and maybe give it another look if the roster improves or if they run some more interesting storylines.

6 Man Tag - Very good opening contest. Not a big fan of the low blow into finisher finish between EC3 and Moose, but I suppose it does setup the Grand Championship match whenever that takes place.

Lashley can actually cut a semi decent promo when he wants to haha...so we're getting Lashley vs Sydal...I assume in a #1 contendership match but with Bertie being suspended and in trouble...could it be for a vacant title?

Richards/Ishimori - Was expecting more from the match to be honest. It was good but I felt like it was lacking something, maybe i'm just being picky.

Last Knockout Standing was good. It was a different finish, but one that was also kind of expected. It wasn't as good as the NXT offering from a couple of weeks ago though, but top effort nonetheless.

Lee/Octagoncito was just silly, I suppose they got what they wanted from a storyline perspective though.

Main event was just to setup the aftermath...which i'm ok with...So are we going to be getting a 4 on 4 match at the PPV then? Seems likely at the moment doesn't it?

OVe are different but I don't get the fuss with them at the moment, maybe they'll grow on me in the future. Grado getting a thank you chant could only happen on Impact right? Also how different is Van Ness when she is actually done up properly?? The gauntlet was fine and dandy, I did like they threw a reserve guy in haha. Drake winning is a new direction and from what i've seen of him, it's going to be an interesting ride as he does have something about him.

On the other side of the coin, why the hell would they let Taryn wear that outfit when she spent so much time pulling up her top?

Eli & Adonis coming out with cigars haha, interesting start from the new Champion. Not sure about the zebra style chairs mind. Solid promo by Eli, they should give him more time to talk. Here's Johnny "Don't Call me" Impact. Line of the promo when Impact tells Drake he's had more names than he's had Championships haha. Interesting tag match made by James E Cornette..so if Adonis & Drake win...Drake won't defend the title...if Impact or Edwards get the winning fall that one gets the title shot...

Baah/Bokara vs oVe - Another quick squash for oVe..impressed again by their uniqueness, still want to see how they go once challenged.

Petey vs Konley - Nice little match. Petey still has a lot to offer it seems and still is smooth with his moves.

Standby Richard Justice is here again haha. Is this guy going to be Impacts Ellsworth? Squash for Kongo, but Justice is a bit of entertainment. Shera stops a post match beatdown...will be a slobber knocker when them pair get it on.

Low Ki/Storm - Really enjoyable match between the pair. Losts of close calls, and the numberous game got LAX the win again.

Excellent main event tag team match. Really got into that one. Thought Impact had it won with that funky top rope elbow drop but it wasn't to be. Drake picked up the win so avoided having to face Edwards and Impact, yet gets told its Drake vs Sydal for the title next week, interesting...but can't wait to see that one.

Conley/Lee vs Petey/Sonjay - Decent opening match. Nothing too special about it. The finishing sequence was nice though.

LAX squash..interesting snippet of cutting back to OvE...guess we're heading towards LAX vs OvE...that could be a cracker. Oh here we have it..and it'll take place in Mexico, interesting.

Taryn/Sienna vs Allie/Gail - Match was going along nicely until that horrific finish. Post match beatdown to bring Rosemary back was a nice touch though. Oooh Taya is here. Heard a lot of good things about her, so let's see how she goes. A heel that uses the Glamslam? Oook.

Bit of a clusterfuck segment with James E, Jonny and LAX. Suppose it's going to be Impact vs Low Ki soon? I can live with that.

Did Grado really just dump Laurel? This storyline has been all over the place and pointless.

20 mins or so of AAA highlights? Why! why! why!

It's GFW's answer to Ellsworth..Richard Justice again..I bet the guy can actually wrestle right?

Drake vs Sydal - Really good and enjoyable match. Drake has improved so much recently and is throughly deserving his run with the gold. I just hope they don't go and pull a switch to Jonny Impact straight away.

Sutter/Garza Jr - Really enjoyable opening contest. There was a nice neckbreaker spot during the match, plus also the added extra of Garza trying to impress Allie. Bit of a surprise win for Garza, but the guy does have something about him, and at 24 he's got a decent future ahead of him.

EC3/Fanstasma - One of the better Grand Championship matches i've seen. I would like to see these two go head to head without the stipulation. Pagano? Who is he? I assume we're heading for an AAA vs GFW type match soon.

Very, very dissappointed oVe/LAX was only brief highlights. I get they'll want to save the full match but what a waste.

A farewell Grado squash...something else has to happen right? Couldn't they have come of with something other than a Sports Management Company haha.

Lee/Dutt - Was enjoying the match until it hit backstage and when it became 2 on 1. That really spoilt it for me. I can live with Lee as Champion as I started watching again just as he lost the title, so i'm happy to see where it goes after the inevitable rematch.

Yaaay it's more Richard Justice, shame he got his arse kicked by Lashley's ATP.

Taya/Nova - Just a squash ah well.

Impact/Low Ki - I've got mixed emotions about this match...part of it was good, part of it seemed very sloppy. I was expecting more from it, never mind. Impact vs Drake in 2 weeks at Victory Road, now that should be good too.

I quite enjoyed that brawl between Lashley and Moose. Obviously Lashley is going to take this match with Moose and Cornette will make it happen due to ATT getting involved again. Look forward to that match when it happens.

I'm glad Impact put a little something up for Bobby Heenan, nice touch.

Some shocking promo time between KM & Impact. Match itself was ok, nothing more. Ended too quickly really.

Ava/Taya - Didn't we see this exact match last week? Rosemary cut a better promo in three lines than the opening segment put together...shame they spoiled it with all the women getting involved. Just give us Rosemary vs Taya to see just how good Taya is.

Grado wrestling in halls to make money? Awesome stuff, and a unique idea to play out a storyline.

Pagano/Fantasma vs Edwards/EC3 - Just as the match got going it ended via interference, guess we will be getting that AAA vs GFW match at Victory Road. So James Storm is the man to even things out.

Kong/Shera - Was ok, would have been better if they gave them a bit longer...seems to be a running theme this week.

Impact/Texano - I enjoyed this one, these two worked well together, depsite it being obvious Impact wouldn't be loosing this title opportunity.

I'm glady they actually showed Drakes match in Mexico compared to the stupid package we got with oVe vs LAX. I do like the International flavour shown this week.
