    The crowd reaction in the opening segment was interesting. At first, it was mostly boos for Cena, then it was mostly boos for RVD....Carlito/Shelton was too slow, a bit of a bore....The Vince/Trips segment was strange, in that Vince reminded me of Shatner playing Denny Crane on "Boston Legal" for some reason....The Striker/Eugene match and segment was okay in that everyone in it served a purpose (most notably, Umaga)....

    I didn't care for the Foley/Angle segment much. Don't know why- the mic work just didn't seem to be up to par....Anytime Murdoch gets the mic is a good time, and I have a feeling the Kane storyline will be slow to play out, a la the Mickie/Trish one....The Highlanders feels like a gimmick straight out of the mid-'90s....Boy, the fans did not care for Charlie Haas....Didn't Victoria get introduced in a similar way Beth is, i.e. she was a woman from Trish's past? Did we ever get a clear answer to what THAT was? Beth does show some promise....The main event segment was surprisingly short. Not that I'm complaining.
  2. All I care about is that he's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack

    That show was awesome.

    Carlito/Shelton was pretty good with an awesome finish.

    Nitro/Haas was better than it had any business being and was really solid.

    The Eugene segment sucked until Umaga came out and took out Hacksaw.

    Once again the ECW segments rocked. A top quality show with a couple of surprises and nothing that really sucked (for once). The Highlanders are awesome, by the way, I've seen some of their stuff from OVW and I don't know if they can wrestle, but they're really funny.

    Still bet Beth is a scorned lover from Micky's past.

    So I am guessing Orton is on Raw now?
  5. Buckeye

    Buckeye WWCD

    Not necessarily.

    He came back because Angle took him out. I think he stays on Smackdown and fueds with Batista when he comes back.

    Did anyone notice when Charlie Haas came out and ran the ropes that he pretty much killed Lillian Garcia.

    Garcia was getting out of the ring and flew off the apron when Haas hit the ring. I hope she is ok cause after that match they had someone else doing the announcing...????

    anyone else notice that???

    so sez

    Kind of a surprise, given that his brother is head of talent relations. I thought he'd eventually retire into a front office/agent position.

    The two good parts of RAW.

    1). Cena getting gang raped by ECW.
    2). Trips giving Vince the Pedigree.

    Bradcore Captain Awesome has added a new update regarding the upcoming TNA video game by Midway Games. As of June 1, production for the new game has started and Midway will be meeting with both AJ Styles and Samoa Joe to brainstorm ideas about gameplay. This was described as a big deal for Styles and Joe as both are avid gamers.

    Jeff Jarrett and AJ Styles are also scheduled to travel to Midway's studio in Los Angeles to start work on the motion capture stage of the game. Jarrett and Styles will be fitted with hundreds of digital sensors and will be the first characters created for the game. TNA intends on posting screenshots of the game as they become available from Midway.

    The final game is slated to be available for the new XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 consoles next year. We will continue to follow this situation as it develops.

    As noted, the 6/5 edition of TNA iMPACT! drew a final 1.1 cable rating and averaged an audience of 1.2 million viewers. This is down slightly from the 1.2 rating the show drew last week, the highest rated TNA show on Spike TV to date.

    Although the show saw a slight ratings drop, Spike TV was very happy with the shows demographic numbers. The show drew a 1.2 rating among males 18-49, a 1.8 rating among males 18-34 and a huge 2.1 rating among males 25-34 for the Thursday timeslot.

    Those demographic numbers made TNA the No. 2 rated cable show on Thursday night behind TNT's NBA Playoff coverage. It should also be noted that since TNA was moved to Thursday night eight weeks ago, the show has continued to average a 1.0 rating and has left Spike TV executives very confident about the series.

    Sting is currently featured on the cover of the new double issue of Inside Wrestling / The Wrestler magazine that is available on newsstands everywhere. will be providing a big 20% off sale after the Slammiversary PPV running from June 19-22 to celebrate TNA's four year anniversary. DVD's, t-shirts and more will be included in the sale.

    As noted earlier, TNA cameras will be at the June 9 House Show in Philadelphia, PA at the former ECW Arena next Friday and are expected to shoot an angle involving Team 3D and The James Gang since it was heavily teased on both iMPACT! and on TNA's website this week. added the following schedule regarding upcoming TV and PPV tapings:

    Mon, Aug 14 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Mon, Sep 4 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Sun, Sep 24 - TNA "No Surrender" PPV
    Mon, Sep 25 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Mon, Oct 9 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Sun, Oct 22 - TNA "Bound For Glory" PPV
    Mon, Oct 23 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Mon, Nov 6 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Sun, Nov 19 - TNA "Genesis" PPV
    Mon, Nov 20 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL
    Sun, Dec 10 - TNA "Turning Point" PPV
    Mon, Dec 11 - TNA "iMPACT!" Spike TV Tapings - Orlando, FL

    Although it might be a case of looking into something that isn't there to begin with, it is interesting that TNA hasn't announced locations for upcoming PPV events from September on. Rumors continue to run wild that the company intends on taking PPV events out on the road. However, given how closely the PPV and TV tapings have become since they were moved to the Sunday-Monday format, it may seem unlikely at this point at least until January 2007.
  10. Good show for the most part although I missed Cena at the end cause i had to drive home from work. Rey vs. RVD was a good match....good chemistry.....loved the Orton-Angle pop.....Orton is the f***in man....the battle royal was kinda lame with too many commercials...f*** Big Show by the way for traitoring.....Jazz vs. Mickie was interesting.....Edge's match was good and it sets up a bloody mess on Sunday night....someone's gotta fill me in on Mick's speech and the Cena match though.
  11. Bradcore

    Bradcore Captain Awesome

    Overall, a good show. I hope edge is ok. He did not take that top rope flip well at all.
  12. I bet they screwed that up because he hit the floor at an awful angle.

    "The Terry Funk punches to Mick Foley were 100% legit and Foley was busted the hard way. Believe it or not, Foley actually told Funk to blast him in the face the hard way." --

    MrAndMrsFish Lets Go Miami Marlins! .

    That Edge bump was pretty scary at first...i was surprised that Edge actually took the table bump....maybe he is growing for the Cena was pretty much a squash in favor of Cena, til the Big Show came up and caused the DQ and that led to a huge brawl as the show ended.

    Bri, you forgot to mention the mini-brawl between Tazz and Lawler...that was funny crap there
  14. Bradcore

    Bradcore Captain Awesome

    This certainly had some of the most entertaining commentary I've heard in a while.
  15. geemoney

    I like the two separate entrances....The opening contest was really good, and this coming from someone who's by no means a Van Dam fan....I thought the Angle/Orton interview segment was pretty damn decent....I was looking forward to Jazz v.s Mickie, but it ended up too short to amount to anything....The battle royal had too many breaks, and I can't say I'm excited to see Big Show in ECW....

    Dreamer/Edge was kind of a throw-away match, and didn't get me any more excited for their tag match Sunday, a match I was kinda looking forward to....Foley's interview was well-done, but the point was kinda lost in translation....Tazz and Lawler were hilarious throughout the show, and had a decent pull-apart in anticipation for the match Sunday....Cena/Sabu was disappointing (though I didn't know really WHAT to expect), and I think the predictible ending (big schmoz) hurt it. It just didn't have the same effect after seeing the same guys all in the ring together earlier....
  16. your right, that was very funny.....Tazz is probably going to wipe the floor with him.......What's the predictions on whose going to win these matches on Sunday??? ECW has to win the right mix to be taken seriously but WWF can't get shut out.
  17. has learned that Paul Heyman has made an offer to World Champion Rey Mysterio to jump to ECW. The offer was extended in the locker room area after the WWE vs. ECW Head to Head special.

    Sources close to the situation claim that Heyman is apparently trying to hedge his bets, meaning that if Mysterio accepts the offer, the World Championship would come to ECW regardless of the outcome of Sunday?s One Night Stand match between Sabu and Mysterio. Now that Big Show is an official ECW Wrestler, is Rey Mysterio far behind?
  18. Spike

    Spike Hammerhead

    That would make sense, what with Mysterio being a former ECW alum.

    Rey gets offered a spot on Smackdown. For his response you'll have to read spoilers or read the show.

    I was at the show tonight and Edge is fine. Pretty good show live. I love how the Cena haters end up cheering for him when it's all said and done. Every time, every show I've seen they boo him to start and cheer him at the end. He is Hogan in some sense (who he reminds me of).
  20. Buckeye

    Buckeye WWCD

    Edge didn't grow balls. He's been good at crazy stuff for as long as I can remember. He helped make those Ladder matches, tables matches and TLC matches fun. So I don't know what that's in reference to.

    Oh, and Dreamer sucks. He was awful in-ring, he was Charlie Haas over. I think I hate him.
