Joe shouldnt be x-division champ he should be with the big boys good match though.
Holy crap spike dudley made his debut.
This has been a great Impact tonight! I have a great feeling that TNA will thrive on Thursady nights

Finally a good Impact.
Joe/Daniels was a fun little tv match. If it werent for smackdown being so downright awesome for the past few months this would have been best tv match in a long time.
3d/AMW was your ussual team 3d getting beat down ending in a cluster, only this time we got a huge shock as Spike came back. Not in a million years would I think this would have happened.
I really didn't pay much attention during Sting/Eric young. But Young was awesome from what I saw. Sting didn't really do much but still good to have him back. And of course we have Stings "warriors". This feud is supposed to be some epic war, yet it just doesn't have that feel to it.
Epic war LOL you must dont watch much of tna he doesnt have a fued with eric young.Originally Posted by and2
I ment to say the Sting/Jarret feud.
This was the best Impact since the first prime time special. Every single segment served a purpose, and had feuds furthered. I loved how well they wrote Liger out of the PPV. It makes six sides of steel seem even more dangerous, and was logical. The Sting-EY match ruled in many ways. EY has great facials and body language and Sting pulled his weight. I wasn't expecting the plancha to look as good as it did, and the bump he took on the rail was brutal. Opening the show with a title match in progress was risky, but I think it paid off. We saw some great highlights of what we missed, and the show started off quickly. I loved that match, and the 3D-AMW match served its purpose. I was glad to see Joe debut the Island Driver in TNA, and off the second rope to boot. Here are some caps from the show.
Great show tonight.
Joe/Daniels was awesome, and since I haven't seen much of Smackdown I'll easily give it TV match of the year. I am, however, very confused as to why they put the X-Title back on Joe when he could have just won the Ultimate X match. Since Daniels and Styles haven't gotten the job done, I don't see anyone from the X-Division getting the title off him, and it'll be stupid if someone like Sabu, Rhino, or Monty Brown does it.
3D/AMW was decent for what it was, and debuted Spike. Unfortunately, TNA's gone the same route they went with Kip James and Kanyon and brought a guy in before they know what to call him. Even "Brother Spike" will probably get them into trouble with Vince's lawyers so I don't know what they'll do.
I expected a squash, but Sting/EY was pretty good. It's been obvious who Team Sting would be and now it's official.
TNA needs better annochers. You good annochers to get you hype for the matches.
Best show of the year for TNA. Joe/Daniels was awesome in every way, with the brutal finishing move. It'll be interesting to see how he handles Sabu. The streetfight between AMW/and 3D was pretty good, although I could've predicted the ending in my sleep, excluding the part where Spike comes out.
The Sting/Eric Young match was great. Sting still has the moves and seeing Eric Young's expressions was priceless.

I missed about half the show as I was working in my room, so I missed the Joe-Daniels match. This I sort of don't get. They wanted to move Joe out of the X division, but then they turn around and put that belt back on him just a couple of weeks after losing it? And for what? To put it on Sabu?
Sooner or later they have to address the collusion between America's Least Wanted and Team Canucklehead. Matt Hyson (pka Spike Dudley) makes his TNA debut (figure they'll christen him Brother Matt, or Brother Mike so they don't confuse him with Matt Bentley). Think back 5 years. Spike debuted in WWF to help his 1/2 brothers beat Edge & Christian to win the tag titles a mere hour after E & C had won the belts themselves. It felt like deja vu all over again. Too bad that Donuts D'Amore wasn't out there to take the Acid Drop.
We saw two sides of Eric Young. 1st, he's out there with his teammates, attacking Team 3D. Next, he's conscripted to face Sting because Jingles Jarrett's too much of a lazy coward to take the match himself. Why? He refuses to do TV jobs. Naturally, Young turns into a deer in the headlights, and only gets an advantage thanks to Donuts. Sting recovers, hits the Stinger Splash, nailing both EY & Donuts, and puts EY away. Of course, Jingles had to spoil the post-match celebration.
On paper, Jingles' boys have the advantage. Team 3D is in a gimmick match vs. the Canuckleheads when they should be in there in Lethal Lockdown. That would be right up their alley. By overprotecting AMW (and refusing to have them drop the tag belts), Jingles is no different than Vince McMoron. The stall tactics in the booking just won't work anymore, Jingles, so deal with it.
Right now, Smackdown is the #1 wrestling show for me. Impact & Raw are battling to stay out of the basement, which isn't saying much.
I agre wholeheartedly. The smackdown US division might just be the best division in all of wrestling. The heavyweight title matches have also been decent the past few weeks.Originally Posted by hobbyfan
Impact was good though, first time I saw the island driver in a long long time.
This just in. The former Spike Dudley will be known as Runt. As in "Runt of the litter". How uncreative can you get?
Well I remember about a half hour before the show that it had moved to Thursday. I don’t watch much Spike with WWE gone and all the Star Trek: DS9 episodes watched, so whatever promotion didn’t have an impact (ha!) on me except for the spots during iMPACT! last week.
Joining Joe and Daniels in progress took me right out of the show and truth be told, I don’t think I ever got all the way into it after that. I just can’t believe they’ve put the belt back on Joe. Zbysko acted like they were moving him out of the division and now here Samoa Joe is, right back in it. I don’t care what kind of “limits” the X Division is about. I don’t respect the belt as much when it’s on a guy 60-70 pounds heavier than everyone else.
The big news out of the 3D-AMW match was Brother ‘Runt’ joining Brother Ray and Brother Devon. The rest was standard stuff.
Eric Young vs. Sting took me further out as Young being in the ring rather than Jarrett fully displayed the hype-machine that TNA is becoming. It’s not as if WWF/E and WCW didn’t do some hyping, but I feel that more and more, TNA offers little TV payoff to their tease.
Well, it's certainly more creative than just calling him "Matt Hyson", which wouldnt fit the "Brother" part of Team 3D. It fits his old Spike Dudley gimmick, and is legally cleared for use. "Brother Runt" sounds a bit odd, yes, but it isn't the worst name they could have used.

TNA's X Divison or RoH's Heavyweight divison are probably the best divisons currently in wrestling.
The WWE treats both the U.S. and IC titles like they mean absolutely nothing. I like alot of the guys that are going for those belts, but they are moved around so much it's hard telling where they will be within a month.
The IC I can agree with. But the US title (and division) currently get the longest matches in the show.Originally Posted by Sigma
The x division has a lot of no talent spot machines (Sonjay Dutt, I'm looking at you). Guys like Shelley and Cide aren't wrestling in it and the same three guys get the spotlight every month.
What exactly constitutes ROH's heavyweight division? There is no clear cut heavyweight division as everyone save Delirious can get a title shot.
Even then, the US title division has guys (BENOIT) who are better than all but one ROH wrestlers.
Joe/Daniels was very, very good. A top TV match of the year as far as I'm concerned.
"Brother Runt" appearing means that in 3 different federations, the Dudleys have been a unit. That's rare in wrestling history.
Gotta love the NWO2K6 chanting "Eric" "Eric".
Grampa: I say we call Matlock. He'll find the culprit. It's probably that evil Gavin MacLeod or George "Goober" Lindsay.
Bart: Grampa, Matlock's not real.
Grampa: Neither are my teeth, but I can still eat corn on the cob, if someone cuts it off and smushes it into a fine paste. Now that's good eatin'!
Four if you count Hardcore Homecoming as a separate promotion. Interestingly (sorta), there is no trademark for "Brother Runt" yet.
