BELL TO BELL – 5/23 iMPACT Wrestling Review!!!

May 24, 2013 2 comments
We haven’t talked about iMPACT Wrestling in a couple weeks, but it has indeed been an eventful month of May for TNA. While an issue outside of the ring like the “sexual harassment” issue involving Austin Aries and Christy Hemme may have put a black eye on things for a moment, what’s been going on inside the arena continues to be compelling and for the better part, a pretty good alternative to WWE programming. Some fans may be tired of the Aces & 8s angle because of it’s longevity, but I shake my head every time I think about that. What is wrong with a long term storyline? Read more…

BELL TO BELL – WWE Extreme Rules 2013 Review!

Got a late start today after being pre-occupied with all of this storm coverage. It is truly devastating. My thoughts and prayers go out to the people of the Mid-West who have been under the constant threat of tornadoes starting yesterday and are continuing to endure the brunt of Mother Nature’s aggression as I type.
On a lighter note, last night was WWE’s annual night of extreme. Extreme Rules 2013 originated from the rich wrestling city of St. Louis, MO. and promised to deliver several great matches and reveals. Some were even saying the event had potential to up-stage WrestleMania 29. For those of you who read my Extreme Predictions, I didn’t do too bad overall. In terms of picks, my night started on the right foot at the Pre-Show and continued match after match until the I Quit Match. I ended the night 6-2-1 as three of the last four contests had unexpected outcomes. That’s definitely a good thing as I think it increases interest moving forward.
Pre-Show
The Miz def. Cody Rhodes
 *It’s clear The Miz has been on a roll since returning to TV, and I felt we would see that continue last night. Good match to warm the crowd up.
Extreme Rules
Chris Jericho def. Fandango
*It’s known deep in wrestling lure that it’s very difficult to defeat a great Superstar twice in a row, and we’ve seen that play out since ‘Mania. I thought this was a great match to start the pay-per-view and fans got to see Fandango get his comeuppance after weeks of cowardly antics…complete with the big debut on the Showcase of the Immortals. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems that it wasn’t until last Monday’s sprained-ankle swerve during the Dance Off that Fandango really raised the ire of fans. Nice ending as Fandango went to the well once too many and jumped right into a Codebreaker.
Dean Ambrose def. Kofi Kingston {United States Title Match}
*The hits started coming as the championships began to be decided. There was of course a lot of intrigue heading into Extreme Rules with the possibility of The Shield gaining another level of dominance in WWE, and fans didn’t have to wait long. I definitely like it being a 1-on-1 match. It’s the way it’s suppose to be and of course adds credibility to Dean’s win. As a product of the indies, it’s been great seeing guys from that level make it and I can’t wait to see more. There is a plethora of talent on the Indy scene, and Dean Ambrose is proof of that. Congrats are in order and I hope he continues to do well. One obvious question born of this situation is where does Kofi Kingston go from here?

BELL TO BELL – 5/17 SmackDown Review

This will be an abbreviated version of the SmackDown report as we prepare for Extreme Rules tonight on pay-per-view. I felt the show as a whole did a good job piggy-backing off a raucous go-home edition of Raw this past Monday. The stage is set for the annual night of Extreme, and I for one am looking forward to several of the matches on tap.
Miz TV with Randy Orton and Big Show got out of control in a hurry as four other Extreme Rules participants crashed the show with words for their respective pay-per-view opponents. Miz gets the credit for stirring the pot and the end result was a 6-Man Tag main event signed by SmackDown Senior Adviser Teddy Long. On one side was Orton, Sheamus, and Alberto Del Rio with Jack Swagger, Big Show, and Mark Henry on the other.

TNA FUTURE will they be around in the next 5 years yes or no

May 18, 2013 Leave a comment

I apologize that i havent been able to post in awhile but i have been crazy busy but that doesnt mean i havent been watching impact. I must say that i am worried that TNA will cease to exist because of these reasons im about to share with you……. One of the reasons is that they only have two real live shows every month and tape the other two in the same town that there in that week that not only causes the viewers to not watch but also gives people the chance to do spoiler alerts and i know im not the only one that hates spoiler alerts im the kind of fan that doesn’t want to know what is going to happen with something before it happens.

reason 2

TNA has an issue building there own superstars that never worked for another company like the WWE, ECW brands take this for instance aj styles great competitor but not build as larger than life and some regular joe would not know who he is because TNA didnt build him properly and also other superstars like daniels kazarian storms etc. werent build as well.

reason 3

TNA wont give the young guys a chance to run with the ball they are having the oldtimers in the main events that was one of the reasons WCW didnt survive was because they wouldnt give the young guys the time to be in the spotlight they had guys like hogan nash and sting in the main events if TNA can fix all this they could be as big as the WWE \one day but right now i dont see them making it 5 more years.
