Celebrating #FinnBalorWeek with some essential viewing, including lots of New Japan, and absolutely nothing from NXT.
TNA offered the former Alberto Del Rio $400,000 to show up at their Manhattan tapings for Destination America. He said “no thanks.” So here’s 10 ways TNA could spend that cash to boost their roster, and make some new stars.
More bad Talent Relations means no more Bad Influence. Impact still hasn’t said “adios” to Austin Aries. Jeff Jarrett got a “Rotten” deal. All of it makes Andy angry.
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.
Over the course of 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 Two: the 1/2/2014 show.
Dave tries to stay positive during a segment involving Pacman Jones. We wish him luck.

Every time TNA takes a step forward, they take two giant, mind-boggling steps backwards. And that makes Andy Angry.
This week’s edition of Impact Wrestling will feature TNA’s immediate follow-up to their biggest show of the year, Bound For Glory. The centerpiece of the show will be the World Heavyweight Championship rematch between Bully Ray and new champ “The Phenomenal A.J. Styles.” What’s the worst that could happen?
