The "I Can't Believe It's 2018 and I'm Starting Another TNA Thread" Thread

Recommended Posts

They showed this most recent Bound for Glory after the Barbed Wire Massacre 3 premiere last night. I didn't stick around. In the most TNA thing Possible they had 10,400 people watching BW3 and they number dropped to like 4,000 immediately after the finnish, I get what they were trying to do, use BW3 as a lead into BFG but nobody stuck around. he sentiment I have been getting is the barbed wire match under delivered on people expectations.  I'm curious to if BW3 was a 1980's Puerto Rico bloodbath if people would have stuck around?

Count me as one that dropped out after BW3.  I feel they could have had a Big Japan style deathmatch with buckets of blood everywhere and people still would have dropped out.  They saw what they needed to see, why bother sticking around for something people either already watched or had no interest in seeing in the first place?

So this Twitch thing is like the live feed on WWE Network while the GWN is the on demand stuff?

Hania The Huntress has already been fired.

Per the newest WON - she was supposed to put over Su Yung in 90 seconds and refused

@J.T. will be distraught

I was excited to see Hania arrive. How very Impact that she’s gone now lol

Pretty much. The other big difference is that on GWN you also get stuff from other promotions whereas it seems the Twitch channel will be TNA stuff only.

According to sources, Jeff Cobb will be returning as Matanza Cueto during the fourth season of Lucha Underground. For what it’s worth, iMPACT! Wrestling is also interested in signing Cobb and the two sides have been talking in recent weeks. The company wanted to bring him in for their latest set of iMPACT! TV tapings but a deal wasn’t reached in time.

There are reports that Cobb wants to perform more regularly for NJPW. Cobb was part of their 2017 World Tag League. Cobb’s Lucha Underground contract would not prevent him from working for iMPACT! Wrestling.

It's cool that companies are reaching out to him. Dude is really good, I've seen him live a hand full of times last year. he has a genuine connection with the audience. I personally rather see him do the NJPW/ROH as I watch that more than I do Impact and LU.

Do you think Jeff Cobb could feasibly get hired and quit Impact and still run an entire season of Lucha Underground before actually debuts and quits Impact TV?

2009. Then Hogan and Bischoff came to fuck that all up.

That's Hogan and Bischoff for you. Never a Hulk Hogan fan dating back to watching as a kid.

Now that Impact is being a little "friendlier" about letting guys keep their gimmicks, etc maybe they'll be willing to let him work all 3. I'm sure Cobb could fit them all in his schedule since LU will likely tape their whole season over a few days and Impact tapes 3 months of TV at a time. Leaves him plenty of time for New Japan and maybe a few indies.

I never could stand Hogan either. This is one of my favorite Hogan moments:

Even when Hulk took a beatdown he gets up at the end and fights off the bad guys.

He wasn't the only guy booked to look that tough...he just did it on the biggest stage.

Inoki was beating "real" fighters. Bruce Hart would fend off six guys with weapons in Stampede. Jerry Lawler was fighting off 3-4 guys in Memphis. It was the way the top babyfaces were made to look good.

Impact announced next Saturday's WrestlePro "Brace for IMPACT" event in Rahway NJ will be the first to be broadcast on Twitch. That event is headlined by Angelina Love vs. Tenille Dashwood (Emma in her first match since WWE), but I dunno if they'll only air the matches with Impact stars.

The rest of that card is:

Alberto el Patron vs. Fallah Bahh
Dan Maff vs. Johnny Impact (replacing Lashley)
Eli Drake vs. Matt Macintosh vs. Anthony Bowens
Eddie Edwards vs. Bobby Wayward
Matt Sydal vs. Chris Payne
Moose vs. Shawn Donovan
Allie & Braxton Sutter vs. Nikki Adams & Nikos Rikos
Chris Avery Quelling, Delroy, & Habib vs. KM, Chris Steeler, & Talon
Plus an appearance by Colby Covington to call out Tyron Woodley, and American Top Team's John Hartnett in a 6 way match.

Is this the first Impact to have a women's match as the main?

Several episodes of the weekly show have had women's main events, I believe the first being a Kong/Gail match in 08 and later Mickie/Tara in a cage in 2010. More recently, Rosemary's matches against Jade, Taya, and Laurel all main evented.

I must say I really enjoy the Twitch TNA channel.  Mostly because they haven't shown anything so far that isn't 4 or 5 years ago.  Think the most recent stuff I have seen is the Roode vs Storm feud

They've aired Bound for Glory 17.

Is there an air time for the WrerstlePro presents TNA yet?

Truly remarkable that they aired that on Twitch, but still haven't uploaded it to the GWN that they charge 8 bucks a month for.

Looks like 8 PM EST. The plan is to air a live event like this each month with various shows.

LAX/OVE was wild but other than that BFG '17 was terrible.  They should bury it instead of exposing unsuspecting people to it.  It wasn't just the booking either, it looked and sounded awful especially the backstage segments.  This may have been the most bush league they've ever come off and it's supposed to be their WrestleMania.

Has Bound For Glory ever had that larger than life feel though?

In an update on this, it will not be live after all as the WrestlePro show takes place Feb 3 and then will air on Twitch the following week on Feb 10 so they'll likely just show the Impact related matches.
