Half way through the PPV and I'm enjoying it.  Apart from a completley unfunny 3D promo.  Bubba is scared of heights and Devon is scared of the dark.  Say boo to him and he'll run away... bollocks

Opening bout Petey vs Curtis? Was excellent.  Women's match was mostly decent - I could watch Velvet Sky climb in between the ropes all day and you don't get those camera angles in WWE lol

Tag team match was really good - lax vs beer money (crap name) but for my money Miz and Morrison are the best tag team around at the moment.

Chain match was average. 

Tag Team match was good but what's the point of the double angles? I wanna watch one screen not two.  Christian was excellent in the match.

A J Styles vs Angle was as good as any match this year.  Best two wrestlers in the company by far.  I thought the main event was disapointing.  It was over before it begun...

The gimmicks are a bit odd, some are ok but theres a few too many at the moment.

I was impressed to see Doug Williams on there, someone should sign him up, that rolling german suplex is amazing.

lastly is there a better move in wrestling than the Canadian Destroyer?


The gimmicks are threatening to kill all the momentum the company built up a few years ago. I switched over a few weeks ago to see Black Reign (Dustin Rhodes with another over the top charatcer creation) fight Kaz (really good worker) in a pole match where the object was to climb the turnbuckle and open a box to see if there was a rat in it. If they got the rat they could then use it on their opponent??!! the other boxes had mousetraps in it??!! Why did they have to use this when a simple one on one match would have sufficed?

The rolling german suplex is called the Chaos theory suplex and i agree that it is an awesome move. Apparently Williams had been approached by WWE but turned them down as he likes to wrestle in Japan and felt that WWE wouldn't suit his style of wrestling. However in a fantasy scenario Williams and Nigle McGuiness would both sign for WWE and form a Brithsih Bulldogs for the 21st century backed up in a British stable managed by regal with Katie Lee Burchill and Paul Burchill.

The Canadian Destroyer is possibly the flashiest move in wrestling, but best hmmm. I do like Kaz's Flux Capactier move (solo spanish fly from top turnbuckle) and the above mentioned Chaos theory.. Alex Shane did an article a few months back in a wrestling magazine talking about finishers. He thought a good finisher had to have three qualities can be performed on anybody, has the opportunity to be reversed by the opponent and thirdly can come from anywhere. For that reason he felt the Stunner was the best move because it had all three requirements.

The new Smackdown game has a create your own finisher fucntion now so hopefully i can make a few of those moves for my character!

The gimmicks really are messing every thing up. it seems every ppv they do every match is a gimmick match of some kind??
Watch the recent ppv and was impressed with the angle(has he got smaller or is it me? away from the steriods fromwwwe i expect whene he was there) aj match.
But not much eles stood out, i really do like lax, especially hernandez(the big one) for a big guy hes got some great aireal moves and such strength. Like an old fashioned tag team with the 1 big 1 small ratio. Miz and morrison are a good team its a shame there in wwe where they dont seem to like tag team wrestling? Its something tna do better.
I agree the x divison match was great, the x division as a whole is excellent and prob better than the heavyweight division at the mo.
  The main event was dreadful joe and booker should be doing better than that, should have been just a cage match without those stupid weapons. Seems like jarrett is gonna return (great thats all they need for the ratings!).

Finish watching Hard Justice last night. I quite enjoyed it. I've only watch 1 1/2 impact shows so I'm very new to TNA so I don't know to much about the people in it.

Love the Angle v AJ Styles match. Quite impress with Styles he looks a good wrestler.

Great to see Christian again, still can't believe WWE did not use he right.

The matches were a good length of time and not overrush like some are at the WWE PPV.

Also good to see some good women's wrestlers and the match that last more than 5 minutes (like in WWE).

I give that 8/10 and shall watch abit more TNA in future. Also it's good that the PPV are free on Bravo2

Yeah it was a better ppv then Summerslam.  Styles is a great wrestler (you should check out some of the best of Styles DVD's) Angle and AJ are the best two wrestlers in the company...

Did anyone else see Mick Foley's Impact debut last night? It was almost like a WWE promo with Angle, and Foley namechecking all the SmackDown talent. Wasn't Foley's best ever promo, but I think he got the job done. But if "special enforcer" at Bound For Glory is the best role they could think of for him, that's a real lack of imagination there.

As I said in the new thread I started when I didn't know this was here:

Has to be said TNA has more of my attention these days than WWE. The tag team division and the womens division is so much better in TNA than WWE. Admittedly they can over book and have waaaaaaaay too much stuff going on and random matches placed in PPVs with no storylines to support it, but still has some great wrestling and characters.

Tickets went on sale for the UK tour in Jan 2010 and I got a pair for me other half's birthday. So cannot wait!

I used to watch TNA back when it was free to view on Sky, but since it moved to Bravo, I couldnt be bothered subscribing, I liked the matches but back when I was watching it (2006) the storylines felt forced and unbelievable, I think I stopped watching when Christian was still around, some storyline about Abyss's past.
I was never a big fan of WWE, I only liked it because of Stacey Kiebler and the Undertaker, but when Stacey left, I couldnt be bothered watching it.

Top of this page is awesome.

Ooo Orlando Jordan.
Another WWE cast off me thinks. That must have been a while ago though yeah?

Also, Mick Foley. Just stop. Please. Stop. You're embarassing yourself.
I don't even care if I spelt embarassing wrong. He just needs to stop.

Also - The Pope?! WTF?! It's like The Godfather's love child.

Bloody hell!

Angle's going mental!

I've got a horrible feeling this has paralels with Brett Hart v Vince.
Right down to the spitting in his face.

I'm meant to be going on Friday. Buying tickets on eBay but it's being a pain to pay and receive them.

Manchester is AJ-Joe-Daniels Ladder match and Angle-Wolfe. If we had to get a repeat of a PPV, it may as well be Turning Point!!!

Hate to say but I'm sure there are still plenty on ticketmaster mate :S

Is that all that's been announced? I know cards are subject to change like. Also the Pope was that ill docs forced him to stay in Glasgow - hope he's okay for Manchester!!

Thats us back in the Hotel from the show now, first and definitely most important let me say that the name 'The Beautiful People' does not do Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne any justice at all when you see them in real life, I'll post the other pictures from the meet n greet on Monday but here is my ultimate favourite:



Tweetypie2005 is now newly single!!!

Other notes - the Pope is HILARIOUS! When I mentioned that me n Tweet's were engaged he instantly blessed us and then mentioned he does weddings quite cheap!! Him n Hernandez also took the liberty of defacing D-Von's picture in my program (Pope signed it Elijah Burke and Hernandez wrote in big capital letters I LIKE MEN right next to his mouth).

The crowd were amazing, particularly the chants - Wolfe got a chant of 'Chelsea Rent Boy', Hebner got 'You sell T-Shirts' and TBP got a 'Get your Tits out!' chant.

Big Rob Terry is literally HUGE!

T-Shirts at these events are a rip off at 20 a pop - I still bought 2 though, got a Desmond Wolfe Polo Shirt that I could easily get away with wearing in public and no-one realising it was wrestling related, also got a Samoa Joe one.

All in all, it was a better night than Smackdown tapings we went to a couple of years ago.

I went to the cardiff show and gotta say it blew the wwe undertaker show out the park!! where as in wwe they turned up did there thing then buggered off without much fanfare or care for the fans. The tna one was pretty much a fan show. You walk in and dixie carters just stood there with fans chatting doing autographs/photos.Threw twitter she finds a fan to escort her to the ring later on to chat to the whole crowd. (can u imagine vince doing this??or even at a house show) Gotta say for 45 she is fine!!
Also all threw the night random people load cheering in the crowd got backstage passes. I was gutted as the woman next to us got em for her and her boyfriend. Also they got some kids in the ring with a few wrestlers but more of that later. Though i enjoyed the wwe show this was so much it seemed for us the fans.

It started with an awesome 3 way dance for a number 1 x-division title shot between suicide,sabin and amazing red(something which confused me but he lost the title on impact aparently). This was an unreal ending with a sick looking amazing reds finisher off the top rope!! Couldnt believe some of the moves these guys were risking for a house show.
The beautiful people came next and they certainly were that wow!!!! they squared off against taylor wilde (who looked amazing herself) and sarita. Hermada was the special ref. Guess they had to use her after the kong thing.

Cardiffs own!! rob terry (this made me laugth seeing as it says he's from swansea in the programme!!) squared off and won the global title from eric young next. and gotta say rob pulled off the big man style match fine, Ive not seen him wrestle much but i can see he's been training hard. Aparently this was the 1st time a titles changed hands overseas in tna. Yes rob is indeed huge!!! but from his little tight pants aparently not all over.

We had a 6man table match next with rhyno,hernandez(who all threw the match just seemed to be chatting with the fans behind him with a massive smile on his face) and THE POPE!! facing off against team 3d and.......they pulled a mystery partner thing on us as the lights went out and...........Kurt angle music plays!!!! fecking unbelievable reaction from the crowd as we all stand up cheering angle angle angle bowing down!! Team 3d and angle get the win with a angle slam threw a table on rhyno. After the match team 3d refuse to leave and stop angle as well as they pick some kids from the crowd and autograph bits of broken table for them and get the crowd cheering the kids name!! quite funny moment when the kids are asked who there fav wrestler are and angles face when the little girl says aj styles!! and the boy says angle, angle goes mentally happy and hugs the kid ,high fives him, shakes his hand etc.
After a small break we have samoa joe vs daniels in a i quit match. back and forth stuff here. joe heavily over with the crowd, It was pretty much a submission match. Joe wins with his taz stlye submission move. I was marking big time for joe..had to after buying his t-shirt it was between his,machine guns and british invasion. Yeah 20 was a bit steep but they were cheaper then the wwe show.

Beer money vs the british invasion came next. the british invasion were bragging about being english at the start of the crowd for some cheap heat. there was a beer money chant all the way threw the match. 1 side beer next money!! Funny stuff i was in the beer side

the main event was wolfe (i was tempted with his football style shirt but was bit more then the others) vs aj. This was a fantastic match wolfes wrestling style going well against aj's high flying. if they had any sense they would put these in a feud (it aint gonna happen of course). Again amazed at the risks styles was taking. Styles obviously got the win.

Overall the night was amazing and im going again next time there coming i have to!! The best thing they done was ignore whats happening in tna right now and use the original wrestlers.
