He's on a short run I feel. His contract was just renewed at the very last second and they only gave him a 3 month contract.

Just watched the first episode of that Total Divas show.

The Bellas seem like bitches.

The two black girls that work with Brodus and Tensai seem like bitches.

The rest of the season seems like catfights and drama.

It was mediocre.

That's bad. And they were in a better place then than now.

I've been to two TNA events and it was back when they were as hot as they ever got (2008). First was a house show in early 2008 and they got forty two hundred people a seventy five hundred seat arena, so over half. Second was the No Surrender PPV in 2008 and the same arena had thirty five hundred people. So a PPV drew less people than a house show.

The house show did have the best non-televised match I've seen in my life; AJ Styles and Samoa Joe verses LAX. The PPV had that AJ Styles verses Frank Trigg MMA match that got inducted into wrestlecrap this past March. A match so good I'd forgotten I'd even seen it.

Not nearly as funny as Dolph Ziggler cutting a promo

AJ Styles is decent enough at cutting promos but that's not what got him over. Being one of the best in ring performers of the last decade is how he got to where he is now. The promo he did on Thursday was decent enough but i'm not sure why today whenever a wrestler cuts a promo where they're telling the truth it's now considered a pipe bomb? Punk's promo in 2011 was exactly that. AJ Lee's and AJ Styles ones were good promos but had nowhere near the impact Punk's did. So I don't consider them to be pipe bombs.

I'm guessing AJ Styles wins the Bound For Glory series and takes the belt from Bully Ray in October. This will be TNA's way of keeping Styles around for a bit longer and it will bring an end to the terrible Aces & 8s storyline which they have fucked up beyond belief. Maybe with Styles as their top guy again TNA can get back to how good they were in the later part of 2011 and all through 2012.

TNAs marketing still needs to be fixed. Given how popular Jeff Hardy was before he left the WWE, he alone should be able to get a few thousand people to each TNA show. The chance for people to see Sting wrestle again should bring a decent crowd to. The problem is, nobody knows the TNA name and that these guys are with them.

He's actually getting married in real life so he's getting time off. He'll probably be back in a couple months.

Is Raw usually this repetitive? Every week it's been

>open with a Bryan/Orton/HHH promo, HHH puts Bryan in an unfair match as the main event
>Fandango bullshit
>PTP win again lol
>guys getting put in unfair matches for talking shit about HHH and Orton
>DBry wins the main event by dq after the Shield interfere, Shield and Orton pound on him until the show ends

Yeah I should of said more and put "done wrestling for now".

Also it's being said Fandango broke his nose during his match tonight.

Weren't you watching in 1999-2000? Every goddamn Raw went like this:
- opening segment: twenty minute Triple H promo
- some other midcard stuff
- a hardcore match
- some Triple H backstage segment
- some other midcard stuff
- Triple H in the main event

That's a little extreme but he did kick off every Raw with a long-ass promo for a long time.
