This proved that Impact Wrestling Are back on track. After a few years were many just wanted TNA to be put out of it’s misery. But they changed the name and changed owners, bookers and pretty much the entire roster. Finally they have found consistency and have a good management team, excellent backstage staff and a very incredibly talented hungry roster. This was the second PPV that has overachieved and both are two of the best shows I have watched this year in wrestling. The only low point of this show was the dick move by Aries at the end of the Main Event (I have lost all respect for him after his actions). The first match was an enjoyable fast paced Tag Match and I can see The Mack having a very promising career with Impact Wrestling. I was expecting a bigger name than Ellsworth to answer the open challenge. But Eli was so entertaining and made this segment really enjoyable. One of the best performances of the show was Tessa Blanchard. In my opinion she is the best female wrestler in the world and has had some of the best women’s matches I have seen this year. After the Moose/Edwards Match didn’t even get started thanks to Edwards getting jumped from behind by Killer Kross, we were treated to a no dq tag team match with The Inovator Of Violence thrown in to the mix as the partner of Dennis. This was a decent match but I must say I do enjoy a Heel Moose and his African Clothing that he wore during a promo and the main event. One person in my opinion that has helped get Impact back to where it’s at now is Sami Callahan. He has had some of the best feuds in wrestling this year and I think he is the obvious choice to be moved in to the main event title picture. The relationship Impact have with Lucha Underground has been extremely lucrative and a lot of positive things have come from it like the three opponents for oVe. Pentagonal Fenix are the best two Luchadors in the world and Brian Cage is a freak of nature and another that could be a future World champion in Impact. The Concrete Jungle Match was not as good as I was expecting. I have really enjoyed the story behind this but I felt the match was not as good as I had hoped and in all honesty I hope this is the end of this feud and LAX who in my opinion are one of the best teams in the world today need to move on and be challenged by other top teams. The segment with Allie going to the Undead Relm was so bad it was hilarious. I was really enjoying the main event and thought it was a great way to end a great show that was until it finished and no sooner had the Ref counted three that Aries had gotten up no selling the finish and left the ring giving fans the finger on his way out. Now I know this was Aries last match in Impact but to do this just showed me how selfish and disrespectful Aries is.
I really enjoyed this show and am looking forward to the next Impact PPV. I will also try to get back into the weekly shows so you will hopefully be seeing more Impact reviews on this site.
