Over the next three days, Dave will be reviewing the past month in 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 one: the 12/26 show.
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 Final Resolution). 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.
This week, Dave gets Claire Lynch flashbacks, Attitude Era flashbacks, and Joseph Park-induced hot flashes.
This week, TNA presents their “Turning Point” event in lieu of a regular episode of Impact Wrestling. That “Turning Point” represents TNA’s return to Universal Studios, where they will tape two episodes of Impact over the weekend, is surprisingly, not the worst that could happen.
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.
This week’s Halloween edition of Impact Wrestling will try to answer the terrifying question of how you can have a professional wrestling league without a champion. Universal Studios’ monsters Abyss and Lei’D Tapa will appear alongside the spookiest witch of them all: Dixie Carter.
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?
This week’s edition of Impact Wrestling falls on the third anniversary of “the night The Band got back together” 10/10/10, but ironically/luckily will contain no Hulk Hogan as TNA focuses on the fallout from his abrupt exit from power and the larger build towards Bound For Glory.
