Abyss vs Rhino = Cool

Jay Lethal, Kenny King, Buck Quarterman = Hello jobbers of TNA!

Samoa Joe vs Matt Bentley = Joe is going to kill him

Was there a legitimate reason Sting didn't show up last week or was he pulling a Kevin Nash?

He really was there, its just that they tape a couple weeks in advance and they were holding off his appearence until the next week.

Bently vs Joe is definatly not a squash (Tracy is hot) it should be a good match but Matt is still going to get his ass kicked.

Abyss vs Rhino should be great as usual.

i don't know...I didn't think the Samoa Joe/Amazing Red match would be over too quickly when they had that a few weeks ago, but it was pretty much all SQUASH.

Last week's episode was rather boring. The James Gang just needs to be pulled from the on-air show. It's pretty piss poor when the only reason they're on is for name recognition.

I'm looking forward to this week's show though. TNA's doing a good job of improving the "entertainment" aspect of their show.

Poor Jay Lethal.. I wanna see him work a full match and not get squashed. I was impressed by a couple of his moves in his first match with Samoa Joe, but well, that only goes so far.

So they hold Sting out a week so he could say goodbye? Ok show, but that was kind of a let down if it's not a work.

The Sting thing has to be a work right? All this hype and he quits after one PPV. Okay show last night, but I agree James Gang should be replaced with some of the better young talent they have.

All that Sting hype and that's what they deliver?

Jay Lethal = Impressive. Haven't seen much of him but that guy could have an incredible future if booked properly

Although I missed the rerun of Saturday's Impact...I was glad it got a great rating (1.1 rating) considering its timeslot.

I dunno how it got that high of a rating, is it because of Sting? If so, I gotta say is wow who knew a big-name star like Sting can draw in viewers.

Then again, from what I read about what other people's thoughts of Raw...it may not be that surprising if they tuned into Impact to end their their wrestling night better.

I think there are a large number of old wrestling fans that would like to give a decent show a chance after years of putting up with the mediocre at best WWE offering. Obviously a name like Sting would bring them in for at least the curiousity factor. I'm hoping the TNA show catches on because I like it, but they have made some weird booking decisions the last few weeks that may cause people tuning in for the first time to just figure its another Raw and never turn it on again.

I heard some big news:

It seems Keller, from the Torch in his latest audio update (1.31), says that the news will be announced officially soon that TNA is moving to Thursday night, primetime, 8 to 9 PM. Followed by UFC, I presume from 9 to 11.

This is really great news if true. What do you think? Is Keller good with info like this?

I actually liked the Sting thing. I thought it seemed real. Although when he talked about watching AJ Styles I have to wonder about the Stinger's memory since he had matches against and with AJ in 2003. He was on a few WWA shows too, so that five year thing is off.

I wish they would let Jay Lethal show what he can do, he was one of about five awesome guys left in the indys that TNA hasn't signed.

After seeing Abyss in person and realzing how huge he is I now love Rhino, with the way he tossed Abyss around like he was Hardy.

Watching Samoa Joe vs Matt Bentley I realized how they've changed from 2003. Samoa Joe was having awesome matches with guys that could carry the match, Michael Shane...err...Bentley was having awesome matches with everyone, stuff like the crazy street fight with Paul London in RoH and the Ultimate X. Joe & Bentley were in the Group in RoH. Now Bently moves so slow, and Joe is awesome.

I'll say Keller is reliable, and now pwinsider is reporting they might even get an 8-9:30 spot.
