After a rough few months — okay, years — it looks like TNA is finally back on track.
Like every other wrestling company, TNA creates a weekly preview of its flagship show, Impact Wrestling (even the ones they’re pretending are pseudo-pay per view supercards like this week’s Genesis Part 2: Electric Piece-A-Poo). And, like every other wrestling company, they don’t always tell the truth when hyping their product. Thankfully, Dave is here to try to figure what TNA is trying to say, and tell you what he thinks, so you don’t have to do either.
Last week, Dave previewed Genesis, last Thursday’s edition of TNA television, as though it was going to be the first half of a four-hour pay-per-view style show. Instead, Genesis Part 1 was a two-hour advertisement hyping Genesis Part 2, masquerading as an episode of Impact. Dave is not happy about that.
This Thursday and next, TNA will present its two-episode Genesis special in lieu of standard episodes of Impact Wrestling. In some ways, Genesis represents a soft reset for TNA, as it is their first taping of the new year and their first go-around with the new reality of Magnus as champion.
Over the next three days, Dave will be reviewing the past month of Impact Wrestling action in anticipation of Thursday night’s Genesis Free-for-View (or whatever it is they call the things that used to be PPVs that they were losing money on). Here’s Part Three: the 1/9/2014 show.

Dave tries to stay positive during a segment involving Pacman Jones. We wish him luck.
This week’s edition of Impact Wrestling will have former champions. Okay, one former champion. Technically. Okay. It’s Adam “Pacman” Jones. We’re sorry.
Every time TNA takes a step forward, they take two giant, mind-boggling steps backwards. And that makes Andy Angry.
It’s Bound For Glory Sunday! Which means it’s time for Dave to ask What’s the Worst That Could Happen? at BFG (you’d be surprised).
