Is Kingston any part of that Secret Season that Chikara filmed?

Invisible hand grenades and ants always look good.

Well to be fair 2007 TNA was one of their few bright periods in company history.   Although they are missing their key elements of that roster like Styles, Joe, Angle, Christian, Sting,  and every cruiserweight that was working in that company

Working nights will be a blessing this week as I can sleep though this with the comfort that I won't miss the new LAX not being in action and will slumber peacefully through the ODB debacle.

I love the Nitro esque "we're outta time! we gotta go! get to the website!!!" ending. Fun segment, always great to see Chris Adonis back. Also different to start the show with guys already in the ring to start a match immediately. While the commentary was at it's most ridiculous tonight, I do think Josh Matthews is somewhat entertaining in his role.

Davey/Eddie was awesome and brought the violence, good stuff.

Glad to see Madison Rayne got her classic "Killer Queen" theme song back. Amanda Carolina Rodriguez got Sarita's great old music and I always dug Storm's Longnecks and Rednecks theme.

The outta time ending would have been good if A' the Impact website wasn't shit and B. this wasn't taped a month ago. I'm glad this announcers feud BS is ending soon cause they were god awful tonight. That women's battle royal was bad enough but then Josh has to get that dig in on Ava. Davey/Eddie was pretty good and I liked the Kingston promo on Storm. I expect him to transform LAX to Blkout when Konnan eventually gets fired.

The tease of Kongo Kong made me wonder if Sienna was forcing him to watch Impact and if it made his eyes bleed.

Maybe if I watch IMPACT this will make sense but in the spoilers the person who comes out with Kongo Kong isn't Sienna.  It is Laurel still doing her crazy drunk bride gimmick.  So why is Sienna in the promotional videos promoting the beast.

Laurel and Sienna were both in Maria's group. Since the wedding, Laurel's lost her mind and Sienna's been trying to pick up the pieces and get revenge on Allie/Braxton.

Yeah, but I think pics were posted on Twitter and it was drunk wedding dress Laurel.  Sienna is aligned with her though.

This show had a severe lack of crazy drunk Laurel, we need way more of that.  And way less of that pregnant looking chick with the gut.  *shudders*

I skipped ahead 5 minutes at a time throughout the whole show, and literally every time I stopped it Josh Matthews and Borash were yelling at each other. Literally yelling. Who is that appealing to??

Who is this Jon Bolen though?? He looked great during his short match with Alberto. He had to have concussed himself taking the double stomp, but he took other rough bumps and had great snap on everything. Everybody recommend me high end the Jon Bolen stuff!!

Their mock "then,now,forever" intro that shows every wrestler they ever failed to make a star has three focused shots of Styles, Joe and Jarrett. 

One of these things is not like the others.

I JUST finished this (Yes, it took me the better part of 2 weeks to watch it!).

The biggest problem with the way the announcers feud went down is Borash is portrayed as the good guy and the voice of the people (Even with his misogynistic "Ladies first" dig to Josh), while Josh is the petulant bad guy who badmouths the roster and its fans.  But, then, in the final segment Josh brings out the World Champ (Whom Borash says "Was not my first pick"), and three other guys from the TNA roster.  Meanwhile, Borash brings out Alberto (Whom JUST debuted), Adonis (Who isn't part of the roster), Morgan (Who isn't part of the roster) and Magnus (Who isn't part of the roster).  So, basically, the guys who worked hard to make the show worthwhile over the last 6 months of 2016 are all made to look inferior to Jarrett's GFW guys.  This has been the modus operandi since Jarrett/Anthem took over: bury the guys who have been around for the last year or so that made the show interesting at the expense of new talent, guys who left the company only to return, and GFW guys.  It's basically telling those legions of people who come back for each and every taping: "Those guys you cheered for are losers.  But we're bringing back the good guys with whom we ran the company into the ground."  At this rate, they're going to lose all the up-and-coming guys because of their complete lack of interest in doing anything really interesting with any of EC3, Drake, Rose Mary etc. etc.

Also, the Konnan stuff with LAX is good but it makes everything else on the show look low-rent and old-fashioned because he's basically doing Lucha Underground stuff while the rest of the show is made to look like 1999 WCW.

I'm THIS close to tapping out on this show.  I DID like the Davey-Eddie match but THAT was a lot of violence for a mid-card feud and the double-stomp through the chair was much nastier-looking than what they used as the eventual finish.

Also, that Knockouts match looked like a Diva Search battle royal.  Outside of ODB, Madison and Diamante, had any of those other women ever wrestled a match in their lives before?  Ug.

He worked the Pittsburgh indies, because I called some of his matches for IWC. I don't know where else he's wrestled, so that would be a good starting point.

He had a WWE developmental deal and teamed with Ryback in OVW.

If you search Jon Bolen for awhile it looked like he was the gate keeper of the indies that former WWE/WCW guys had to go through

Seriously I have found matches against Val Venis, Robbie McAllister, Billy Gunn, Johnny Swinger and Scott Steiner
