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.

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?

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???

***Edit****

Guess i wasn't this is from pwinsider.com

WWE is reporting that both Lilian Garcia and Beth Phoenix were hurt at tonight's Raw. Garcia took a nasty bump off of the ring when Charlie Haas ran into the ring and bumped her off of the apron. WWE is saying she suffered a sprained wrist and is being taken to a hospital for X-rays. Phoenix suffered what is being called by WWE.com a "fractured mandible" when Victoria hit her and will need oral surgery.

so sez wwe.com.

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.

TNAwrestling.com 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.

ShopTNA.com 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.

TNAwrestling.com 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.

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.
