– Sorry about the lateness of this post… It’s been a long week.
– Of course I have to lead of with the emergence of The Rock. I’ll admit I was one of the skeptics that truly thought The Great One would never have anymore involvement in the wrestling business outside of the occasional video promo. By God am I glad I was wrong. Monday was special. Monday gave me chills. And The Rock might just save WrestleMania.
– Speaking of Monday, how good was the Daniel Bryan/Miz match? I think The Miz is surprising just about everyone with his rapid improvement in the ring. He’s always had the charisma and picked up on his storytelling in the last few years but how technically sound he’s become in the past few months is a true testament to his work ethic.
– TNA’s Against All Odds was booked as an afterthought PPV with the big NC iMPACT taping taking place later this month and it definitely translated onto the screen. None of the matches seemed to mean a thing and the World Title match wasn’t even booked until the Thursday before the PPV. It’s been said time and time again that TNA needs some sort of REAL change and I’m not so sure it’s just in creative anymore. They need an executive producer who would notice problems like the fact that there’s a PPV in 3 weeks and we don’t have a single match booked… or even a storyline that would lend itself to an obvious match. I can’t even fathom that happening under Vince McMahon.
– That being said, Jeff Hardy vs Ken Anderson was a pretty damn good ladder match and that is a true testament to these two individuals. Both Hardy and Anderson have both gotten slack over the years concerning their in ring work and I really feel these two personalities take that as a personal challenge to show the critics up. I wish there were more workers like that at the top of TNA.
– Even as little as 5 years ago, AJ Styles vs Matt Hardy would have been considered a fantasy dream match. Today, fodder for iMPACT and another showcase of how far Matt Hardy as fallen with his in ring work.
– Dolph Ziggler is being genuinely recognized as a former World Heavyweight Champion by the WWE. Go ahead, just ruin that accomplishment a little more, Vince.
