Hello friends and welcome to a review of TripleMania written by someone who is clueless about Lucha Libre. If you’re looking to understand what is going on, look elsewhere. I’ll even tell you where to look. Check out Luchablog. Every part of this review that sounds like I know what I’m talking about is because I read his preview and followed along with his Twitter while watching. Anyway, I love these shows because they make me laugh, so let’s have some fun.
Oh dear, it’s happening again. Just a few months after it seemed like Impact Wrestling/GFW had got their act together, the train has not so much fallen off the tracks as backflipped off them in an explosion of chaos. Jeff Jarrett has been sent home due to personal issues (and whatever they are, I obviously hope he sorts himself out sooner rather than later) while rumours are swirling that Anthem already wants out. On top of that – in classic Impact style – they hadn’t completed the paperwork for their merger with GFW, which considering Jarrett’s position, may now never happen. Basically, it’s a disaster.
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.
