He TNA'ers from all around. The Saviour here with another edition of Sudden Impact, where it's all Impact Wrestling, and none of the Evil Empire from up north. Yes, I did retire the Abdominal Stretch on Monday but Sudden Impact has been equally as successful, and I'm going to take this one and run with it.
What's interesting is, I titled this week's edition...If There's Any Justice. That is a direct shot at the ratings situation, because TNA has been, and continues to put on great weekly shows. They went live and really took off. They're laying it all out and it's a shame more people aren't tuned in to it. But, I posted a blog over the weekend about it, so I'll leave it at that.
Let's talk Sudden Impact.
Bound For Glory Series
RVD and Mr Anderson put on a very good opening match. I like the crucifix for the clean win for RVD. We saw Mr Anderson pretty much get it handed to him by Bobby Roode and then tap. He should be a filler for the rest of BFG.
Joe and Bully Ray put on an awesome match. I was sad to see the interference from Joseph Park to ruin such a thing of beauty. I was glad to see Joe win though. I hope when this series is done, he's near the top. I don't get Bully Ray myself. He seems like he's being pushed to be a top heel. And he's playing the part good with his attitude and all...but he never wins. He's like the ultimate top heel jobber. Can someone tell me what the crowd chants for Samoa Joe? Is it "Joe's Gonna Kill You"?
Finally, next week's BFG main event, Jeff Hardy and James Storm. Looking forward to that one.
X Division Tournament
I'm happy to hear about this. I like the qualifiers. This week had two decent matches that were very fast-paced and put on a good show. I was actually sad to see Rubix lose. He did some crazy things. I really wanted Mason Andrews to win too...not just because he had some fantastic stuff, but I didn't see much from the Philly boy, and I don't know how much I'm gonna like seeing that hair and outfit. Ugh. And I'm from Philly, so he's the hometown guy for me. But please, no Cameron Movement.
Gut Check Decision
I like this girl Taylor. Glad she got the Yes vote. But what makes this decision segment even better.....you guessed it. Joey Ryan. He's here to stay and that can only mean good things.
Tag Team Championship
I don't know how Kazarian is even walking after that powerbomb last week. AJ and Daniels did a good job covering up his botched hurricanrana from the apron. However, We now have new Tag Team Champions. I didn't know it was going to happen, but all night I was thinking SOMETHING was gonna happen. Well, what happened sucked. It was a great match, but a rather poor ending. I hate when they do that. It's so WWE like.
Bobby Roode and A Double Feud
I cannot wait for this match. One thing the heavyweight title needs is a good feud. I mean, if you tune in to the other show, their upcoming PPV will feature a title match between two guys who have been feuding for months. I think the TNA World Title needs that and I think A Double is the man for Roode to feud with for the rest of the summer. I'm sure they'll put on great matches. I just hope TNA can book this feud properly. It's time to stop with the one and done title contenders. While the rest of the top guys are busy with BFG, this would be the perfect situation.
Overall Impact was...well, pretty good, but I won't say great like in recent weeks. I think they spent too much time with this Claire angle, and with how the show ended, there doesn't seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel on this situation. There was also a point around midway through the show where it was segment after segment. But overall, they did continue their focus on quality wrestling matches, as I don't think there was one bad match on the night. Maybe not the best endings to some, but the overall quality of matches was awesome.
We have what's looking like a pretty good episode coming up next week. In my opinion, TNA continues it's rise and continues to put on better shows than WWE. Some may not agree, but so far, the summer belongs to TNA in my eyes. The ratings are usually posted tomorrow. That's when we'll find out...If There's Any Justice.
Thank you for reading this weeks' episode of Sudden Impact. I believe I'm defending my triple threat blog title this week, so check it out.
Be Safe Everyone!
