TNA Impact Wrestling Coverage: The Final Straw?

Never before has TNA been so utterly boring. Between the bland promos and average matches, this company is in serious trouble. At this point, it feels as if nothing can fix the mess this promotion has become.

It’s getting to the point now where any wrestling fan has to have zero faith left in the company.

Even Jeff Hardy’s return to the company and plea to the fans for one more shot was far from charismatic. Like the rest of the show, it was a complete waste of time.

Matches:


Tag Team Number One Contenders Match: Devon and The Pope vs. Magnus and Douglas Williams:
A decent back and forth encounter that saw both teams go through a nice assortment of moves. However, Devon ended up with the win for his team after he hit Williams with the front spinebuster.

TV Champion Eric Young vs. Robbie E.:
A standard match with an anything but typical ending. Young got the win with an old-school jumping piledriver, a move rarely seen in the sport anymore. Afterward, Rob Terry hit the ring a delivered a Land Ride-type powerbomb to Young.

Mr. Anderson vs. Kurt Angle w/ Sting as special guest enforcer:
Strangely, this was billed as the Main Event, but aired at the midway point of the program. These guys put on a quality performance, but the crowd looked absolutely dead. Nevertheless, with a hearty helping of counters and nearfalls, it was a more than serviceable contest. That was until Immortal came and attacked Anderson

Angelina Love and Winter vs. Mickie James and Velvet Sky: A terribly boring match that had only one redeeming quality- the fact that Winter and Sky both were solid. Nevertheless, the horrid pace and no real story behind it made it entirely passable. The finish was equally obnoxious, as Winter administered the Blood Mist to James.

Robert Roode vs. James Storm vs. Gunner vs. Bully Ray:
Samoa Joe and Matt Morgan got in an altercation before the match for some reason. That, ironically was the most exciting part of this bout. Essentially a tag team match, rather than a four corners match, Beer Money and Immortal stuck together throughout the contest. However, after Bully Ray cleaned house with the Urinage Suplex and a Bubba Bomb on Beer Money, Gunner pulled a swerve and hit him with a running knee for the win.
