    The public perception of pro wrestling took a brutal hit as a result of that era. The impact is still felt today in the horrid ad rates pro wrestling gets. Even RAW, a top cable show every week, gets fuck all for ad revenue because advertisers have such a low opinion of pro wrestling and its fans. We can thank that time period for that.

    As for WCW, they spent so much time telling fans WCW was trash, and repeatedly had the nWo chump them out, that when the nWo ran its course, all that was left was a company they conditioned the fans to believe was inferior. Ric Flair believes the nWo is the reason, or at least the main one, that WCW is dead and I do to. They worked themselves into a shoot.

    Well I disagree with Flair. The problem was not having something to keep fans interested after nwo ran its course. Not the nwo itself. They are two different things.

    The public perception of wrestling took a hit because, again, once the attitude era ran its course we were left with Vince scratching his head and HHH being top guy. Therefore ratings dropped. Again, the problem lies with not being able to replace a good thing with another good thing. You can't blame the good thing that brought the ratings for your short comings for not coming up with something interesting to replace it with.

    I think Vince Russo did more irreparable damage to WCW and wrestling's image than the nWo. Like, there was way more shitting on the product and breaking the 4th wall going on during his run. And it was that kind of shit that completely turned off fans from WCW and possibly wrestling.

    Anywho, as far as what Josh said goes, I do think it is always a dumb idea to have someone on your show bury the product and put over the competition. It doesn't matter if he's a heel... You're still telling your audience that there is something better they could be watching instead of your show.

    After looking at the spoiler I'm happy to see fresh faces and familiar faces returning. The roster seems to have gotten stale over the past year or so. Hopefully they can bring the knockouts, tag, and x division back to life.

    Xplosion Match: Reno Scum def. The DCC (Eddie Kingston & Bram)

    * Karen Jarrett opens the show and basically writes off Maria Kanellis, saying she had a nervous breakdown and her absence from television has caused unprofessional behavior within the Knockouts division. She specifically mentions Sienna, saying that everyone thinks she has become a problem. Sienna takes a shot, saying she got to Impact based on her merit, not because of who she’s married to. Karen fires back, saying that they have no idea what she did to get to where she is. “2 Cocky” Kevin Matthews is here. He’s going by KM and announces himself as Sienna’s cousin, and demands an apology from Karen. Out comes Braxton Sutter and Allie to make the save, and we’ve got a singles match between the men.

    * Xplosion Match: Laurel Van Ness def. MJ Jenkins

    (1) Andrew Everett def. DJZ

    * Rosemary comes out for an in-ring interview with JB, and is asked if there is anyone left for her to beat as Knockouts Champion. She brags about “retiring” Gail Kim, and all the women she’s beat since becoming champion. Out comes ODB who claims she wants to become a five-time “Knocked-Up Champion”. This leads to pretty much all of the Knockouts coming out and getting into a huge brawl.

    * Ethan Carter III is out. After his loss to Alberto el Patron for the contender’s spot, he says he needs to evolve and become the EC3-time world heavyweight champion, but he’s cut off by James Storm, who doesn’t have his DCC boys with him. Storm says he built Impact Wrestling and was there for all the historic moments, and wonders where ECIII was for all of them. He says it’s his turn to become world champion again, and says the fans should decide who gets to be the next challenger to the title.

    (2) KM def. Braxton Sutter. There was a post-match brawl that Sutter and Allie won over KM and Sienna.

    (3) LAX def. The Decay, Reno Scum, and Garza Jr. & Laredo Kid in a four-way tag team match to become the new Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions!

    (4) Eli Drake def. Caleb Konley

    Bruce Prichard is out and says that he’s had enough of the drama between JB and Josh Matthews. The amount of heat that Matthews has in the Impact Zone is out of this world. He announces that each man will pick four wrestlers, and those guys will compete in an 8-man tag team match on the 4/6 show.

    (5) ODB won a gauntlet match (which in TNA is a battle royal) to become the number one contender to the Knockouts Championship. The final four were ODB, Brandi Rhodes, Madison Rayne and MJ.

    James Storm came out to his old “Longnecks & Rednecks” theme, and announces that the Cowboy is back! He puts over that the highest rated episode of Impact Wrestling was when he won the world title, and he plans to get it back. He’s cut off by Eddie Kingston and Bram, which leads to trash talking back and forth. The group officially breaks up as Kingston spits in Storm’s face, and Storm lays both guys out with superkicks.

    Andrew Everett def. Suicide & Marshe Rockett in a triple threat match.

    (7) Davey Richards def. Eddie Edwards in a Last Man Standing match that is said to be excellent. Go out of your way to see this one. Angelina Love (Davey’s wife) was in the crowd with Alisha (Eddie’s wife) who just got offered a contract earlier in the night at the One Night Only pay-per-view.
    My biggest take away is how did I miss that Davey Richards is married to Angelina Love.

    Can't believe they gave the belt back to Lashley. What a waste of time.

    Deffo wanna see LAX 2.0, though.

    Wonder if we will get Davey as champ sometime soon. They appear to be pushing him quite strong.

    Not only are they married, but they also have a son together. They've actually been married for almost two years now.

    Didn't see this posted anywhere.





    The following are results from Sunday afternoon’s Impact Wrestling television taping event in Orlando, FL. The episode is expected to air on April 6th. Thanks to Ed Tomas for sending in these results.


    Xplosion Match: Garza Jr. & Laredo Kid defeated Eddie Kingston & Bram, Fallah Bahh & Bokara, and Reno Scum in a four-way tag team match.


    Xplosion Match:
    ODB & MJ defeated Angelina Love & Laurel Van Ness. Lots of comedy as Laurel is still in her wedding dress and has a bottle of champagne. She’s clearly drunk and eventually Love gets sick of her shenanigans and tosses her from the ring, but takes the TKO from ODB for the finish. After the match Laurel parties and drinks with ODB, then kisses and leaves with Earl Hebner.


    There’s a segment with JB and Josh Matthews, and it’s said that Matthews will officially leave commentary if he loses the 4-on-4 match in the main event. The former CHRIS MASTERS comes out, and is now being called Chris Adonis. He says he’s sick of Josh complaining like a troll, and that there will be a new era in Impact Wrestling, threatening to put Josh in the Master Lock.


    (1) Alberto el Patron defeated John Boland. This was a quick squash match. Patron called out Bobby Lashley, but he doesn’t come out.


    Josh Matthews and JB make their way back out, followed by Bruce Prichard, and it’s time for the announcers to draft their teams for the main event. Josh selects the Impact World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley. JB of course selects Alberto el Patron. Josh then picks Bram from the DCC, followed by JB picking Chris Adonis. The third pick for Team Matthews is none other than Eli Drake, followed by Tyrus as his fourth and final selection. The heels attack Patron and Adonis in a 4-on-2 assault, until MATT MORGAN runs down and clears out the ring! Morgan will be JB’s third pick, but we still need one more, and it will be…. MAGNUS!


    Xplosion Match:
    Mahabali Sheera defeated Fallah Bahh. After the match Bahh beats down Sheera and hits him with the Banzai Drop.


    Xplosion Match:
    Reno Scum defeated Garza Jr. & Laredo Kid


    Bruce Prichard comes out and announces that James Storm was chosen by the fans over Ethan Carter III to challenge for the world title. I don’t remember there being a fan vote, but that seems likely. EC3 hits the ring and is pissed off at the decision. Prichard tells him he needs to go to the back and look into the mirror, because he didn’t just lose to Alberto el Patron, he tapped out. He wonders if he tapped out to Patron, or he tapped out on himself. EC3 heads off to find himself.



    (2) Allie & Braxton Sutter defeated Sienna & Kevin Matthews in a mixed tag team match. Kongo Kong (who was in GFW and is an AAW regular) comes out and attacks Sutter, while Laurel comes out still in her wedding dress and attacks Allie with an assist from Sienna.



    (3) Andrew Everett defeated Marshe Rocket, Suicide and Gregory Helms in a four-way X-Division match. Helms did very little and was mostly on the outside during the match.



    (4) Davey Richards defeated DJZ in a quick match. Eddie Edwards comes through the crowd but he and Davey are kept separated. Alisha Edwards comes out and attacks Angelina Love instead, as a brawl erupts.



    (5) Alberto el Patron, Matt Morgan, Magnus & Chris Adonis defeated Bobby Lashley, Tyrus, Eli Drake & Bram in an 8-man tag team match. They built up to a Matt Morgan hot tag throughout the match, and he cleaned house to a big pop. Magnus hit the top rope elbow drop on Bram to win it for Team JB.



    The crowd erupts into some vulgar chants at Josh Matthews, as all the babyfaces on the roster come out and lead the crowd in the “na na na na” chant. Matthews says his wife is probably crying in the back right now, but he’s a man of his word and will leave. The babyfaces chase him to the back, and everyone celebrates Josh leaving to end the episode.


    Maybe JR comes in as the second man? Or Don West? OR BOTH!!!!! Don West and JR as a two man team would be fantastic!!!

    God help and forgive me,
    I wanna build something that’s gonna outlive me

    I read that Samuel Shaw and Santana Garrett (Brittany) are back. I'm curious if he's still using the creep bastard gimmick. I think she is going by her real name. Kind of hoping they would come back as the creepy couple from a few years ago.

    You do realize that adjectives/adverbs are handled differently in the Spanish language, right?

    As someone who has studied the language, yes I do. Seeing as they refilmed his debut to correct his tron, I'm guessing they saw my point as well.

    That had to be TNA's error probably committed at production earlier that day. As far as I know, he has been going by El Patron for awhile now.

    Believe it or not, he isn't doing a terrible job at it. Impact ended the other night when Karen Jarrett slapped Josh. Now, while he did oversell a bit by falling on the ground, he just stopped and gave her this evil look where you could see the wheels turning in his head. It was well done as Josh resisted the urge to do the typical heel oversell and get up and kick the ropes and throw a tantrum etc. He just sat there staring at her.

    Josh kind of sucks as a announcer but I think he could make a good manager. He's annoying and I think he can take a bump if needed.

    Heel announcers are fine and work well in small doses, but the announcers being a focal point of TNA's current main event storyline sounds a little out there. But then, this is TNA, so...
