That's impressive.  Most people would just use a steel chair.

Maybe I'll tune in for the Matt Sydal/Eddie Edwards match. I'm happy to see Matt Sydal getting work, even if it is for Jarrett. I like that the Eddie/Davey feud is continuing.

They've read the other threads here for ideas and now they've got their own Braun smashing people with Elsworth gimmick?

Dammit.  I was going to make a joke about the wording of that.  

I am getting a giggle out of imagining Masters/Adonis swinging Tyrus like a baseball bat and bopping Moose overt the head with him.

I know he's a DVD favorite, but there's something seriously wrong with a promotion that books Eli Drake as Chris Masters' flunky.

That's just the tip of the iceberg.

Are they done taping now? Sydal just popped up on ROH TV (this is from the Baltimore taping from 4/8). I wonder how the deal plays out.

Maybe he (Sydal) signed a "Cody Deal" where he can work for both ROH and Impact and take outside bookings independent of those two groups. Idk but I does seem odd that he showed up at the most recent ROH TV Tapings and now randomly popped up on Impact Wrestling's tapings.

I will tune in to this bullshit just to see who the fuck Idris Abraham and Hakim Zane are.

Those are my new favorite African-American sounding pro wrasslin gimmick names and it will be my luck that neither of these guys are black.

Hakim Zane is a friend of mine. Very cool to see him on national TV tonight, even if it is on IMPACT ;)

Main event ended up very good. I've enjoyed all of Alberto's impact matches a lot so far, great selling here in this one. All the other matches were pretty short. The EC3 whipping of Storm was vicious. I hope they have a leather strap blowoff now. Laughed at Josh asking Pope how Marshe earned an Impact Grand title shot and Pope said he's earned some wins over some impressive athletes, but he's like 0-8 on Impact. The bizarre KM segments have become oddly hilarious to me.

Not an awful show tonight. Main event was good but I feel like they just brought in Magnus to drop the title. He just doesn't fit in Impact. I feel bad for Eddie Edwards cause he never gets the upper hand on Davey and Angelina. It's getting ridiculous. Speaking of ridiculous, the LAX/VOW feud is going to be that. How can anyone take LAX seriously against such monsters like VOW? They look like Mascarita dorada compared to them. Nice to see Marshe Rockett out of the X division hell.

I'm almost embarrassed to say Impact's the first time I've seen Desmond Xavier.  He seems like somebody I should be checking out more often.  But I'm glad to see Sydal on TV, be it Imapct or ROH.  The guy is so damn good and I dig his laid back attitude to the match while still giving his all.

As for Laurel's squash, it was fine but I guess they don't care whether a jobber's a heel or face.  I could have sworn Ava was a heel two weeks ago.  The LAX funeral was awesome, they're so damn awesome that even if the show's shit (it was good) at least we get them.  Rosemary honestly freaked me out hanging in the rafter looking like that.  I love VOW and I know I should be all "USA! USA!"  But I'm going with LAX in this feud.

And I'll admit to liking EC3's cowboy impression.  The guy's wacky enough to make it work.

I actually kind of understand this.  I think Matthews mushmouthed delivery has added to the silliness of the whole thing ("Ore yew callin me a LIAH?!") while the supporting actors used have almost no acting talent whatsoever.  The whole thing goes right in the so-bad-it's-good territory.

Not to mention how they went from face to heel in the middle of a sentence.  Come out and mock Decay to cheers and laughter from the crowd, randomly call out an obvious plant in the crowd to boos.  No build whatsoever.  Just "This week I'm a face because I'm facing a heel team on their way out! Now I'm a heel because we debuted a new team the crowd obviously won't boo."

So if I was watching the Angelina vs Alisha match correctly,  Eddie Edwards actually threw in the chain that was used in the finish.  Or at the very least pulled out the chain.  If it was planned for a Alisha then she completely screwed up because she paid no attention.  My guess is that the camera screwed up
