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

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

I'd say the first one did, but that was due to the circumstances (its promotion, its standing at the time of the weekly PPVs, etc).

Nobody short of the NFL or Olympics are going to approach the overblown pomp & circumstance that WWE does but from 2007 to whenever Hogan left, TNA at least looked major league.  BFG 2017 might as well have been a random Impact with that main event finish and a cold Tyson Dux filler match.

The Barb Wire match (from Jan 18?) is starting right now on Twitch. 

This is the first current TNA I have watched in awhile. We'll see how it goes.

I watched the twitch feed the other night for awhile and enjoyed it. Lots of older stuff - some of it embarrassing, like Puppet in the trash can. But fun. The VQ on the twitch feed is excellent, too.

Man, that was some carny bait and switch. 

I wasn't expecting FMW, but if you're going to advertise "too violent for tv". . .well, let's say I got duped.

so Mike Johnson is reporting that Jeremy Borash has signed with the WWE

So if you were wondering who that last person to turn off the lights in the building, he is probably it.   Really the only person in that company who has been there from day 1

Quick! Put him in the Hall of Fame!

(And I posted the full story in the regular discussion thread but it doesn't really have more details beyond he signed with the WWE)

I think it's more cutting all pricey/non-essential talent to get to this cheaper version of whatever is left.

That might be the case but Borash IMO is the absolute last person they could let go.  I'm not going to say it's all doom and gloom for Impact, but they're going to have one helluva tough time getting over this loss.

Looks like they are teaming up with Destiny Wrestling and BCW for the Impact tpaings up here

And they've actually sold out the $100.00 and $50.00 tickets - only GA left at $25

It will probably be the most $$$ they have made at a tv taping in a long time.

Not disagreeing but cutting Borash also clearly states “this is not the old TNA at all,” even though I know Damore is still there and all.

I like how they aren't even slightly trying to hide the big giant spoilers from the tapings anywhere

They had posted it on their social media within 24 hours of it happening.

I kinda understand it - they want a hook to have people come back and check them out.

Obviously it would have been better if they did a quasi-live show on the first day of tapings like they used to do but it doesn't seem like they do that anymore.

I am an XB1 user and I can't really say that I consider this to be good news.  it feeds more into the XBOX ONE IS IN TROUBLE OMG~! bullshit I see every week in Forbes articles from Paul Tassi who is obviously on the Sony payroll.

BTW - JT while you are here.

You might wanna sit down when you read about Rosemary apparently blowing out her knee/leg in a match this weekend

Goddamn you. Rippa.  I was having a good day until I heard this.

Silver lining - By the time that Impact is ready to shoot more episodes, her knee will be 100%.

During a match at AAW’s Chaos event, last night in LaSalle, Illinois that saw AAW Women’s Champion Jessicka Havok take on IMPACT Wrestling’s Rosemary in a match for the title – Rosemary suffered a knee injury and had to be helped to the back.

Sources tell us that during the match the two had a kick exchange and Rosemary ducked a kick, countered with her own and went down. She rolled to the outside for an extended period of time before they went to a quick finish.

We are being told that she cannot put weight on her knee and the fear is that she has suffered a serious knee injury but she won’t know for sure until she sees a doctor.

She has plenty of time to heal.  TNA doesn't need to tape again until sometime in 2021.
