This was the final Impact Wrestling before Turning Point. Week’s just fly by now, in my mind anyways. I mean we have Championship Thursday in TNA and then Open Fight Night. We have around one, maybe 2, regular shows and then the PPV. It’s hard to build a PPV with two different specialty shows but TNA is able to do that. Kudos to them. As far as this show goes, I think TNA did a fine job building the PPV. The 6 man tag team match was a 2-1 deal where they put two stories together to build and keep them relevant for the PPV. They did an excellent job building the TNA World Title as that ending segment was well done. Austin’s promo was top notch. I don’t know why they didn’t have him do that when he was champion. I knew he had it in him. TNA just didn’t give him the time. The Jeff Hardy fall was brutal. Jeff is one of those rare people who would actually land flat on his back while others would use their feet and then roll down. Since Jeff turned around, I find his passion for wrestling to be on the rise. He is there and loves the business. I personally can’t wait for this match at Turning Point. The other great story developer tonight was the Aces and 8s segment after the tag team match. While it will only be Devon vs. Kurt Angle at the PPV, they continue to build the Aces and 8s rampage and destruction. Those hammer shots from Doc, aka Luke Gallows, looked real. Doc did a fine job swinging and bashing into Sting’s body. I could actually feel the hammer hits. Sting sold it nicely, as he always does. I am not sure how long Sting will be out of the story, but that is a huge loss on Hulk’s part. While I thought Aces and 8s were losing steam, they gained it right back tonight. Kudos again. The Jessie, Tara, and ODB match seemed rush. It didn’t work well with me. I questioned the whole match because it didn’t deal with the PPV, but now those three have a match and Eric Young will join them. Great set-up. Christian York got a contract through Gut Check. I am not surprised. I praised the guy last week on here as I thought he was the best one from Gut Check yet, look wise. It is his time to prove himself. I hope they groom him in the ring. If so, I can see some great X-Divisoiner or mid-card worker in his future. One thing I did notice was Samoa Joe’s Television Championship streak end. He did not defend the title. I could see TNA having him defend and then have Magnus interfere. I would have done that. They didn’t. That knocked Joe right off the Top 5 Rankings. Overall, while I felt like the show was rushed at some points, but we seen a very nice built for the PPV. I am excited for it. It is this Sunday. Thanks for reading. If you want to hear more from me, follow me on Twitter (Link below in my bio). Let me know what you thought of the show and if you thought it was a nice built for the PPV.
