TNA IMPACT Wrestling - June 21, 2016
Random Thoughts and Opinions
A so, so start to the show. EC3, Drew Galloway and Lashley were solid on the mic. EC3 and Drew Galloway started off with good intensity, Lashley added his cool, calm, confident demeanor and then they lost me with Eli Drake. Drake brought too much comedy to an intense situation in my opinion. This is another instance where TNA’s lack of depth shows. Mike Bennett would have been a better option instead of Drake.
The tag match with Eli Drake and Lashley vs. Drew Galloway and EC3 was an entertaining match. Drake taking the pin was predictable, but he looked good in there with the other three main eventers. I'd like to see him take on a more serious approach, I think it will help fans view him on the same level as the other three.
Lashley was superb in his backstage confrontation with Galloway.
Not quite sure where the Decay and Bram story is going, but I'll give it a chance because it's Decay. Yet another example of TNA’s roster problems. There isn't another legitimate tag team on the roster for Decay to feud with. That said, Rosemary was good here, I like that she had more to say than just Decay, Decay, Decay.
Wasn't Jade a heel a month ago? Not a fan of this match. Jade isn't the best in the ring, and Marti Bell is worse. Unfortunately this isn't the last time we see this match.
The Impact crowd is dead.
The Dixie Carter, Billy Corgan, Mike Bennett and Maria segment went way too long. Dixie Carter wasn't good in her role and Corgan wasn't much better. I'm also not a fan of Bennett going after the X-Division Title.
While I liked Eddie Edwards vs. Mike Bennett, I don't like Bennett holding the X-Division Title.
So now there's tension between BroMans because of Raquel? Ughh
Rockstar Spud is criminally underutilized. He's such a great heel. Great post-match beatdown of Sutter. Good segment.
Excellent video package on Sienna. TNA needs to do more of them with different talents.
Now that's a bump Jeff, wow. It looked like he over shot the table.
Really good Six Sides of Steel Match between the Hardy's. That said, every week Matt challenges Jeff to a match, and every week Matt loses. They both keep saying it ends tonight, but it never does. While I enjoy watching the Hardy's work each other, how long can a feud keep going that's this one sided?
Although there is more Bad on tonight's show than usual, I still liked it.
