Having enjoyed Impact vs Lucha Underground from WrestleMania Weekend, I have decided to once again slip into the pool that is Impact. The company formerly known as TNA has burned me before, but their relationship with Lucha Underground combined with the likes of Don Callis taking critical roles behind the scenes has got me intrigued. I’m leaping in and hoping they’ve finally sorted their shit out.
I don’t know how many times I’ve claimed to be done with TNA/GFW/Impact. It feels like it’s a regular occurrence. However, they keep finding ways to drag me back in. Their latest plan to get me to care again involved teaming up with Lucha Underground for their WrestleMania Weekend show. At a time of year when a lot of companies wheel out the same faces, it was something a bit different. You could officially declare me interested.
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.
It was rather lovely of Rev Pro to dish out so much new content the week that I not only signed up to their On Demand service but also decided to start writing about what they’re up to. I’ll assume they arranged this tour purely for my benefit. Monday Night Mayhem was filmed at Portsmouth’s Guild Hall and had two tasty title matches set up nicely by the previous shows. Let’s dish out some stars.
Recently I decided that I don’t watch enough British wrestling. It probably won’t come as a surprise to most of you, but it’s quite good right now, and while I’m slowly working my way through Progress’s back catalogue, it’s time to dive into some other companies. Which is what brings us to Revolution Pro Wrestling and their recent show in that most English sounding of places, Leamington. Let’s dish out some stars.
For good or for bad reasons, more eyes are on TNA than have been in a long time. The good nearly all comes from the deranged minds of Matt and Jeff Hardy while the bad comes from the news that a certain McMahon is after the company. Whatever the circumstances, it meant Sunday’s Bound For Glory was the biggest PPV they had held in a long time.
