TNA IMPACT WRESTLING - March 29, 2016
Random Thoughts and Opinions
“No, fire crotch, excuse me.” Reby to Maria during the opening segment.
As usual Matt Hardy killed it to kick off IMPACT. However, as hard as TNA is trying to get Mike Bennett over as a main eventer, there's something missing.
That was a very John Cena like promo from EC3. Mannerisms and all. Not his best work.
Overall, Hardy carried the opening segment.
It's bittersweet seeing Beer Money so involved in major angles knowing Roode is no longer with TNA. Hopefully TNA has something planned for James Storm after this group of tapings air.
Really good six-man tag match with Hardy getting the pin on Roode.
Would've rather seen Velvet Sky go over. Not quite sure what Gail Kim's strategy was for setting up the match.
Nice fire from Pope. Like Matt Hardy, Lashley's delivering the best promos of his career. The calm demeanor just works for him. Pope and Lashley work well together. Is this leading to Dinero leaving the announce table and becoming a wrestler again? If so, I'm all for it.
The Decay videos never get old.
I'm all for TNA bolstering the tag team division, but BroMans isn't connecting with the crowds. The right team went over, BroMans needs all the help they can get.
While I'm not a fan of Grado, the backstage beat down he received from Al Snow has me interested.
Eddie Edwards = next X Division Champion.
A good main event between Jeff Hardy and Drew Galloway for the TNA World Championship. A nice spot was when Hardy went for the Swanton off the top rope into the steel steps. While I didn't think it was time to take the belt off of Matt Hardy, it was smart for Galloway to go over clean using his finisher.
I thought this was a solid show; better than last week’s.
