Lee vs Williams - Despite the predictable interference, it was an enjoyable match. I thought the ending sequence was a little poor though.

6 Woman Tag - Really don't know where to start with this one. Too much of Taya, too short a match, real poor ending sequence, just horrid, who booked this match?

Bit more continuation to AAA vs GFW stuff, wonder if this match will get a gimmick attached to it for Bound for Glory?

oVe vs LAX - Really good tag match with some excellent in-ring spots. The oVe superplex into a powerbomb wowzers...Ortiz with the DVD into the corner onto the other oVe guy wow. Shocked at the clean win for oVe too, thought they may have held off on the switch until BFG.

Can this rubbish around Lashley and his team be over and done with? If he's leaving after BFG just let him go already.

Drake vs Impact - Was really enjoying the match until it hit that nasty period of ref bumps and shenanigans but it ended with a pinfall in Drakes favour so I can live with that. The post match bit was a bit weird. I'm glad they're giving Garza Jnr a bit of a push in the spotlight,  but what has Drake got in common with LAX? Are they now hired guns? Lots of questions to be answered in the coming weeks.

Eli opens the show, and I love the fact he said he built an Eli Cakes haha. 18-30 size 2 with a DD Cup haha, are they trying to turn him into something like Naitch? Now he's putting Adonis in matches haha. Solid opening segment.

Adonis/Garza - Was enjoying the match until that ending. I seem to say this week in, week out, why can't build things differently. Impact cost Garza the match then takes a swing at him haha. So it's Impact vs Garza next week with winner to face Drake at BFG, obviously going to be Impact again isn't it?

oVe squash, awaiting LAX to attack.....oh it didn't happen surprising.

I really can't stand Sienna on the mic, her voice just annoys me haha..so they dropped the hint of Gail retiring as Champion...we all know it's going to happen but it can't be in a straight one on one match when she's feuding more with Taryn than anyone else...there we go here's Taryn, so odd one out is now Allie..There we are...4 way incoming then...Allie just has i'm Allie hahaha...here's Karen to make the match then huh. I wondered how they'd fit three feuds into two matches here we have it.

Woohooo more Grado on tour, this time a VIP photo shoot haha.

Lee/Konley/Everett vs Dutt/Petey/Sydal - Err no storyline sense for Everett to join Lee, whoever made that decision needs twatting. Also is this going to lead to a 6 man X Division match at BFG...more than likely right? Match itself was really enjoyable, best match of the night so far, three men wanting a title shot so that's going to make thins interesting.

I normally skip these Global Forge segments...is that the first time Carelli has appeared on screen?

Laurel on a scooter haha.

So continuation into the Moos/Lashley storyine...another beatdown for Moose...so who is going to be his corner men for this match at BFG?

Tag team main event was really good too. The finish was kind of expected, but I thought it would have been a DQ finish but that it wasn't. It's obvious we're going to get a 6 man tag at BFG.

Probably a bit too much filler tonight but wasn't too bad from an in-ring viewpoint.

It can't just be me that still loves Konan on the mic? He does ramble a little at times but he's effective. Plus hearing Diamante talk is a nice change too. oVe accept the 5150 street fight for BFG so it's oVe vs the whole of LAX for the tag titles.

Rosemary squash followed by the predictable Taya attack.

Taryn still sucks, can she please be moved on after this BFG match happens?

Bertie back at BFG? Will he team with Storm & EC3 in the expected 6 man match with AAA vs GFW?

Grado getting asked if he's the meal ticket hahaha brilliant stuff.

6 person tag was ok. I'm glad Xavier is back in the mix, and considering he should have a title shot from winning the Super X Cup, where the hell has he been?

Very good main event match between Impact & Garza. Whilst we all know the outcome was going to be Impact going over, they had elevated Garza Jr very well so I hope they give him something to do now rather than just fading away.

Far too much filler yet again this week, when will they learn? 3 matches in a show that had roughly 80 minutes of time to fill isn't good enough at all.

Adonis/Impact is being promoted as a grudge match but then it ends up being a tame match. Predictable outcome due to the BGF main event, and predictable stuff going down post match. Let's hope it's not a sign of things to come for the rest of the evening.

Patron is back, oh yay...let's hope they have something for him that isn't main event.

5 way match was pretty good. It went against what I expected as I thought we'd get a total AAA vs Impact thing and it didn't pan out that way. Fantasma and Texano not being on the same page is very interesting too. Not sure where all this is leading now.

Xavier/Everett was ok. I do like Xavier's work. Sure it's flashy etc but it works for him at the moment, plus that finishing sequence was brilliant.

Grado/Park segment was always going to happen but I thought they may have dragged it out a bit longer to really build the tenstion between them. Monsters Ball match which Grado will no doubt find a way to win to stay with the company. Also the best line of the night so far, Grad calling Park a sheep shagger...as a Welshman I find that more amusing than most.

Tag match was what it was...just another means to an end towards the tag title match at BFG.

More crap between ATT & Moose...at least we got a match made now...granted it's not the one on one match it should be, but it's a match nonetheless.

As much as I am looking forward to oVe vs LAX at BFG some of these segements on location have been absoloutely horrific!

Taya/Rosemary was a good match. It's a shame they gave it away on Impact, rather than giving us a longer match on a PPV event. I felt the finish was a little weak though, maybe I was expecting too much from a TV match. Wait...did we just get a First Blood match announced between Taya & Rosemary? That's what i'm talking about!!!

All I can say about this weeks show is too bloody disjointed.

Oh I love Eli...and Petey...fresh match...but it's not going to go well for Petey when Bertie and Impact are about.

Hey it's Jimmy Jacobs again...sitting himself on commentary? Err ok.

Dutt/Sydal - Very good match between the pair, wonder what is next for Sydal though...well there's my answer EC3 haha.

GWN filler? Really? It's the new reboot so why the hell are they doing that?

Edwards/Fantasma - Brilliant match. Really wasn't expecting that calibre of match for a general TV show but it certainly delivered.

oVe tag squash was what it was. They're pretty much full fledged heels now and they need to be with Calihan at their side. Be interesting to see what LAX, who I assume will turn face do next as this feud continues...For the second time tonight it didn't take long to find out haha...ooooh almost a Cop Killa...the crowd are going to go crazy when he does nail that one.

Allie/KC was ok, we'll leave it at that.

Bertie/Impact brawl went on for too long. They could have shaved 5 minutes off that easily and still have the desired effect. We all know it's leading to a #1 contenders match, and it's going to be a great match without doubt, just keep it fresh and don't drag it out.

Do people genuinely  enjoy TNA these days?  I haven't been able to sit through a show without getting bored or confused.  I don't understand Impact much any more.  It seems like Impact should rebrand itself or something - because it's not really focused on what's happening at Impact, it's focused on other brands shows like NOAH, BCW, and AAA.  I'm really confused about the AAA talent as well.  Should I be cheering them or booing them?  

I was happy to catch the full match for oVE vs. LAX (both talented teams) and bringing back Konnan was a smart idea (he can cut a promo damn well - and has a reach to Spanish audiences).  I was also happy to see Fantasma (huge fan of King Cuerno in Lucha Underground).  But, overall, the Impact show is kind of weird, dull, and confusing to me as a viewer who just joined in.

Also - I can't stand Josh Matthews on commentary - Borash is fine, but they should think about bringing back Todd Kennely - he was something good for the short time he was around.

And what are people's thoughts on Eddie Edwards?  He's always been kind of a boring character to me.  Wrestling wise, he's good - but he lacks fire.  See: Malenko.  Malenko was a super awesome in ring talent, but he also had non-verbal charisma.  His facials, his fire in the ring, was what made him the "Iceman".  Eddie doesn't really have a "fire" in that ring - he just pulls off move after move.  What are your opinions on him?

Also - what's the whole deal with Lashley?  I don't get this American Top Team thing...it seems stupid.  Lashley was good when he was on his own as a heel (the times I saw him on Youtube), what the hell happened?

I think i'm about the only one to watch it here, I keep posting in the hope that one day people will catch it and will have someone to discuss it with haha.

The recent stuff was from the whole Impact/GFW merger which went tits up when Jarrett got a bit naughty and it all went separate ways so it's all kind of rebooted again from this week.

Matthews is annoying, but he is improving. Just count yourself lucky you didn't have to sit through his commentary when he was in a wrestling feud with Borash!

I like Eddies in-ring work but character wise he is very bland, and the comparison with Malenko is probably spot on.

As for Lashley and ATT, the storyline behind it is Lashley & ATT want Impact to release Lashley so he can concentrate on MMA, Impact officials didn't allow it and it's stemmed from there.

Oh and the AAA stuff was to end of BFG where Fantasma, El Texano and Pagano took on the team of James Storm, EC3 & Eddie Edwards in an Impact vs AAA match.
