What a stinker of a show. If you thought RAW was bad this week, Impact took it to another level. Although there were a few nice moments in the ring and the Aces and Eights vignettes filled in the back-story of the group, the show was flatter than year old club soda.
Here’s our weekly list of who didn’t completely stink up the place.
5: Austin Aries and Bobby Roode: Although their match against Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez was mediocre, TNA’s Tag Team Champions retained their titles this week. But they have a bigger problem. It’s called Bad Influence. With Christopher Daniels and Frank Kazarian on their tails, how much longer can Aries and Roode keep their titles?
4: Christopher Daniels and Frank Kazarian: Could a face turn be in the making? TNA is flooded with heels and Kazarian and Daniels have a real comedic streak that appeals to the marks and dedicated fans alike. The pending matchup with the Tag Team Champions will be a more than solid one, but it’ll mean more if the fans could pick a side.
3: Kenny King: He was a bit sloppy with a few of his moves, but hit a nice Blockbuster-type move to retain his title. The champion has plenty of swagger, but desperately needs some real competition- someone he can get in a long-term feud with. Right now, all he’s doing is wrestling intense matches that don’t mean anything.
2: Matt Morgan: The only reason Morgan is on this list is because he beat the only person in the company who is close to him in size and stature. This was a terrible match; a complete waste of time. Like Kenny King, Morgan needs a war.
1: Jeff Hardy: The winner of the #1 contender’s match main event this week, Hardy will be the guy who tries first to bring the World Title back to TNA. Unlike their last feud, the battle lines have been drawn. This will be a good pay per view match, probably better than anything seen at Lockdown.
