If they had any sense at all then RD Evans would have been Archibald Peck on his journey through time.

Will be great seeing him on TV.

The AEW / NXT increase in quality is even forcing Impact to up its game.

A WINNER IS US~!

The Bodyslam Challenge will be the fucking best.

This "Provincial' federation would earn extra Canadian points if the Rough Riders take on the Roughriders.

How dare these damn Canadian son of a bitches disregard the time-honored Thanksgiving tradition of having someone dress like a moron at the end of the show by having everyone dress like morons for the whole show.

Not our thanksgiving, not our problem.

The Rough Riders promo is hilariously dirty. 

Not only does Johnny Swinger show up as himself (as expected) but so does... Tommy Dreamer? He's kinda channeling angry '80s Terry Funk, I guess.

Maybe he should have come as Eastern Championship Wrestling green suspenders Tommy Dreamer.

That would've been so much better than putting a bandaid on his head and wearing a Ribera jacket

This was pretty fun. the Rough Riders make for a great group, I like Alexia Nicole a lot and hope she gets signed full time. Loved DJ Too Large's Discus Lariat being called the "Platinum Discus" and the commentary during the Soviets beatdown. Great to see Robert Evans. Laughed at Sonny Sanders' saying they were gonna go out for some cheeseburgers.

Loved Rhino showing up in his Southpaw gimmick, he left his partner and the territory!

Great show. Favorite parts were the leapfrog -> hiptoss blindfold spot and of course Callihan as Corny.

This was a hell of a lot of fun, and something I'd like to see them do once or twice a year.

Oh man, the Rough Riders were awesome.  Like straight out of a Russ Meyer movie.

Perfect analogy. Seeing Havok and Grace in normal clothes certainly made me feel Meyer-esque...

I didn't watch the whole thing yet but the one thing that really stood out was Rip Rayzor (I think it was him) doing a drop down and actually tripping up his opponent.  One of the only times I've seen that move given some context and meaning.

Hear me out: turn Impact! into IPWF full-time.  Every one was having fun, the wrestlers were clearly happy not to have to bump as hard or put themselves in as much peril as usual with the throwback style.  Even the commentary seemed like more fun (Though they were  a little more wink, wink ironic than the rest of the show).  I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Bigtime Dropkick! He should go for the cover! High Bodyslam! You don't see action like this every week!

Sexton Hardcastle was Edge's name before he went to the WWF.

Johnny Swinger being Johnny Swinger was incredible.  Loved how his offence was innovative and mind blowing when these days he’s seen as old timey and past his sell by date.

The double axe handle invention was brilliant.

Shows are so much better when the performers are having fun.  They could fast forward 10 years next year and do an attitude era show.

You know, I've just realised what the one thing they missed from old style regional shows was. No 'My cousin is a superstar' gimmicks. If Tommy Dreamer had (rather than being himself) showed up as Tommy Funk, talking about how his cousins Terry and Junior always said Tommy was the really mean one of the family, that would have been perfect.
