Random Thoughts and Opinions
Good heel promo from Lashley to open the show.
Strong opening segment. Lashley was great on the mic as the new heel champion. With both EC3 and Drew Galloway coming out to challenge Lashley, it looks like we could be heading towards a Triple Threat Match at Bound for Glory for the TNA World Title. I like the dynamic of both babyfaces chasing the title. TNA also gave viewers a reason to stick around by booking Galloway vs. Lashley in the main event during the opening segment.
Eli Drake looks good getting extended offense on Jeff Hardy.
I was actually enjoying the match until Matt Hardy interfered by biting Earl Hebner. Drake looked good and there's clearly no end in sight for the Hardy brothers feud.
Nice backstage interaction between EC3 and Galloway, even with Drew over-selling his injuries a bit.
All right, Matt Hardy has won me over with the Broken character. I'm really enjoying the Hardy feud and tonight's fight was no exception. The spot with Jeff Hardy sliding down the guard rail of the stairs into the table was a cool visual.
TNA does a great job hyping the main event every week, it's a shame they don't do it with the undercard. Trevor Lee vs. Eddie Edwards should've been made out to be a big deal. At this point TNA should repackage Trevor Lee. He's too talented to be stuck making bad facial expressions and not talking.
The BroMans are mind numbingly bad. I can't believe TNA is still trying to get this act over.
Looking at the TNA roster standing on the stage, it's striking how small it is.
Congratulations to Gail Kim.
¾ of TNA’s tag teams are comedy acts. Hopefully they're scouring the indys for more tag teams because this is embarrassing. Thank heavens Decay retained.
Dixie Carter’s slap was terrible. Come on, seriously? Did Pope just say that's the slap that's going to be heard around the world? Ughhh
Lashley needs to lose the headband. Really good match, Lashley and Galloway work well together. EC3 getting involved was predictable, but it worked. Looks like we’re headed for a Triple Threat match for the TNA World Title.
