Since I apparently review TV wrestling now, I thought I’d give the first episode of NWA Powerrr a watch. It’s a studio wrestling show which is going for an old school vibe, so I’ve no idea how I’ll react to it. I guess there is only one way to find out.Continue reading “NWA Powerrr (9/10/19) Review”
The last time I reviewed Impact, I said it would be exactly that, the last time. However, since then there has been more creative changes and the company seems to be heading in the right direction. So, once again, we step into the breach. It’s Bound For Glory time and Impact’s biggest show of the year is getting another chance to impress me. Let’s dish out some stars.
With the almost daily announcement of some new disaster occurring for Impact (I think it’s Impact again now), it’s easy to forget that they are still producing wrestling. Yet, they are, and this week was Impact Victory Road. Much like Destination X, this wasn’t a PPV, but a special edition of the weekly show. Despite that, I figured I’d give it a shot. What’s the worst that could happen? Let’s dish out those stars.
After years of chaos, Slammiversary is the company formerly known as TNA making a statement. Following a takeover which has seen them become Impact and now GFW, they are back under the control of Jeff Jarrett and moving into a new future. The question is whether that future is one we can be excited about or just more of the same.
TNA is a mess at the moment. Over the last couple of weeks we have seen some of their biggest stars decide to leave the company and they seem to bounce from disaster to disaster. Sunday night’s Slammiversary, seemed to sum up all of those problems at once.
So last night, Bound for Glory took place, the supposed jewel in TNA’s PPV calendar and very much their answer to Wrestlemania. Yet, this year, it didn’t feel special. In fact it barely registered on the Richter scale. Unlike my usual look at wrestling events, I am not planning on going through this one match by match, but instead by having a look at exactly where I think TNA went wrong with BFG, this year round.
