I am back writing TNA's Impact Wrestling coverage right here as I was unable to write it last week. While I did end up watching I.W. last week, I thought it was a good show. There wasn't anything major to point out. As far as this weeks.....it is a different story! This week had a show that was developed inside and out by creative. I was on my Twitter throughout the show to see people's reactions about what was going down as it happened. (If you want to give your thoughts, simply tweet me. My Twiter will be found at the end of this.) Anyway, each story got mixed reviews. The Bischoff family story was mixed. While some said it was poor, I really don't have a problem with it. I am glad to still see Eric on television as I am a huge fan, and it's nice to see him against someone new. The other story was the whole Robbie and Ronnie thing. While I am a fan of Robbie E. (Not Ronnie or any Jersey Shore member), I am fine with this story. It gives air time to Robbie, R. Terry, and even Mr. Young. It works out for most people. The show lacked some huge star talent like Hulk Hogan and Kurt Angle, but honestly, they weren't needed. It's nice to give them a rest while showcasing other talent.....like Bobby and James. They had a great back and forth match. While they have great chemistry with each other, they also have it against each other. I know we will see more matches with them two fighting on different sides, and I will be anticipating them. Lastly, TNA had another great crowd reaction as they were on the road. You can clearly tell the difference. To hear more and interact with me, follow me on Twiter: right here
