Impact Wrestling kicks off with a video package of Beer Money, Bobby Roode and James Storm. It shows their relationship throughout the years as one of the best tag teams to have ever formed in TNA. It then goes to their title match last week. As the referee is injured, Bobby takes full advantage as he smashes the beer bottle over the face of Storm. Bobby wins and becomes the new champion! This is what he dreamed about for over a decade!!! Roode spits on Storm as he is lying on the mat and then puts his foot over as he conquered the Storm! It then shows James backstage as he was angered like never before. He then pushes the camera out of his face.
The video ends and the camera cuts to the arena. It shows another great crowd at a TNA show. It is jam packed. All of a sudden, Bobby Roode's music hits. He comes on stage as the fans boo him. He has the TNA World Title over his shoulder. He walks down the ramp and into the ring as the fans continue to boo! He grabs a mic and begins to speak!
He asks if the fans are really booing him. He is a bit surprised. He then asks if they are booing him or are they chanting, "Roooode, Roooode." He then calls them morons as they chanted his name last week. He then asks why the fans hate them. Is it because he killed Beer Money or is it because he did something that was for him? Roode then states that he is the leader of the new generation. He calls the world a "dog eat dog" world and he ate Storm for lunch. He calls Storm stupid as he didn't see it coming. Roode goes on to talk about his 13 long career and as he talks about it, Storm is shown backstage watching this whole thing unfolded.

First off, I would like to thank everyone who interacted with me this past week either on here or on my Twitter. If you haven't yet, you can join in on the talks. You can find the link to my Twitter at the bottom of this. Anyway, this week's show seemed, to me, to be a very fast pace and a "keep on going" show. While we seen some "talked about" Impact Wrestling shows lately, one show having more than enough segments for some people....this show was filled with wrestling. While I like segments, I do not mind the wrestling at all. Wrestling gives people all sorts of air time that normally do not see it like Ion and Rob Terry. This show had more matches than usual. In fact, it had the amount of matches as a PPV would have. Anyway, there wasn't one terrible match (even though Ronnie in the ring was pretty interesting). The main thing the show did was improve stories and hype up the PPV, which is this Sunday. The best thing a show can do before a PPV is hype it up, and that is what this show did. It featured all of the matches that are going to happen at the PPV. They ending really interesting and I liked it. While it gave Roode more heel power, it also built the story with him and James, but it also built hype for the PPV as he is now facing AJ Styles. Personally, I can't wait for that match. While no one knows how it will end, we can figure that the beginning and middle will be a great wrestling contest. Hearing from people across this site and on Twitter, there are a lot of mixed reactions. One fan wrote to me and states how he is loving Impact Wrestling. He was skeptical about their decisions at first, but now he is becoming a huge fan. He was against Beer Money breaking, but now sees the point; whereas others think it was a huge mistake. In my opinion, Beer Money was one of the best tag teams in the world (if not the best) and one of the best in years. They had it all (and I mean it all).....but everything has to come to an end. While I loved their tag team matches with Motor City Machine Guns and other tag teams, I like seeing Roode and Storm elevated to the top. That is what they been waiting for. That is what they deserve. They deserve to main event and have the World Title. It's what they worked for. It's nice to see a change of pace. While that is what I think, I want to share your thoughts via the weekly question. To interact with me, comment and/or follow me on Twitter and tweet me. I love hearing from others.
