Wrestling fans

Recommended Posts

They built their next PPV in two weeks despite having more time. That is why people are criticising the booking. But that does not change the fact that we are getting a LIVE PPV of moderate significance for the first time since June of last year, which is why fans are still excited. The last two PPVs that we had were insignificant as they had already taped Impact episodes to air after the PPV and so people knew what would happen. Yes, TNA is that dumb. Also, a few matches should be good despite the weak build.

I just dont understand the logic.Why does TNA tape Impact shows which are supposed to be aired after the PPV BEFORE the PPV happens LIVE? So basically the wrestlers in TNA pretend to have won or lost their titles before they have actually won or lost their titles? Why only TNA do this?I know that movies are fimed out of order as well out of convinience and cost saving so i guess the same reason applies to TNA as well? But what about spoilers?Everyone will already know whats going to happen at the PPV so why will anyone want to watch the PPV?

They only started doing this last year with BFG and again did this practice with Slammiversary. I think it's not uncommon for lesser known untelevised indie promotions or promotions which don't air anything live to tape things out of order. TNA had to do this due to logistic issues, and I am not defending them, they absolutely didn't get their sh*t together to have to do this. TNA is still the only promotion other than the WWE which still sometimes have live non-PPV shows. The fact that they had to resort to this structure of taping speaks volumes about how much the company has fallen. Usually what happened in the last two PPVs (we only got two PPVs in the last one year) was that no major title changed hands, except for Jeff Jarrett winning the KOTM title which everyone knew would happen anyway. The selling point of last year's BFG was Japanese wrestlers, while that of this year's Slammiversary was some non-title matches (like Storm vs Magnus, or Aries vs Davey Richards). Both PPVs were promoted without promoting the title matches, and so people still kind of didn't know what would happen. A funny thing happened at last year's BFG. Samoa Joe had already lost the X-Division title to Low Ki in a yet to air episode of Impact, but had to still come with the title and defend it on the show. Anyway, all this nonsense is not plaguing this year's BFG which already makes it so much better than last year's.

Bound for glory is going to be live on sony six hd at 5.30 am tomorrow.

That's great. They are trying hard these days to be more popular in India, especially with them about to become the first wrestling company to tape TV there (Ring ka King doesn't count really). I request people to support them if they can (by watching BFG or going to their shows if it happens in your city), that would be helpful in driving more wrestling to the country in future.

Decent show so far. Tag team championship match and Roode vs Lashley were great. I didn't catch much of the Ultimate X and the gauntlet due to poor stream. Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong happening now, which should be good as well. Angle vs Young and main event to follow. I am intrigued by the world title match right now. I'm not so sure that EC3 walks out as the champion anymore.

Good show. My intuition for the main event turned real.

So is BFG worth watching? I dont watch TNA much at all but what little clips i saw,the TNA vs GFW storyline seemed interesting although most members of GFW except Chris Masters didnt seem to have any character or personality.My favorite TNA wrestler currently is EC3 because he is good on the mic.

There was no bad match on the show except the gauntlet match which you may skip until the result. Other matches were good to great, nothing earrh-shatteribg or MOTY material but still good. You might like the tag title match, Roode vs Lashley, Angle vs Young and the world title match. You may also like the Ultimate X but I couldn't watch that and so can't recommend that one way or the other, though Larry Csonka seemed to like it as well.

Just a heads up. People are saying that this week's ROH was taped from a baseball stadium, and should be very good in match quality, as it has The Briscoes vs Time Splitters and Roderick Strong vs Okada.

– TNA announced today that in partnership with Sony SIX, Mahabali Shera, along with EC3 and Rebel will travel to India later this month for an extensive international media tour. During that tour, they will make a key announcement about TNA in the region. This will likely be the long rumored tour/TV tapings at the end of November/beginning of December. TNA’s Executive Vice President of Television and Talent Relations John Gaburick will also be along for the trip to search for Indian talent. The weeklong promotional tour starts in Mumbai on October 19, before heading to Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Bangalore.

That dickhead Khali showed up promoting TNA. They have announced a live "One Night Only" show in Mumbai on 4th December, and two (probably untelevised) shows from TBA locations on 2nd and 3rd December.
