Man, one thing I don't want to see is Dixie being worked into the stories, especially if they intend to turn into a damsel in distress who has to be rescued by Hogan, Jarrett, or some other top guy.

Probably. Seriously, I wouldn't put this whole thing past Russo.

The thing is, I have no idea what's going on... The fake hogan twitter is back up...It's interesting.

@EBischoff Hey Eric Bitchoff, it's Daniels, the one you fired! Now who was mind fucked... way to stay accurate in the "media"
It's gotta be someone just fucking with people. This is too bizarre to be real.
The fact that PW Insider was name dropped again makes me assume it's someone connected with them, if not some weird work or storyline or something.

Yeah, on Daniels' twitter, he's said that he has nothing to do with it and doesn't appreciate trolls using his name.

Damn, the first hour of Impact has been impressive and you know The Guns & Beer Money will be fantastic at the least. I'm was just thinking how positive the shows been and they put up the Bischoff as ref graphic followed by the Hulk graphic. This has the potential to be one of the best wrestling shows of the year but I have a bad, bad feeling about how the 20 minutes are going to go. Here's hoping I'm wrong.

Re: WWE/TNA/ROH August Wrestling Thread: Hardcore Justice/ Summer Fest

Great show.

Seriously, not only the best series ever, but probably the best tag match ever. It makes it even more impressive that they had four previous matches which were all good to great, and they managed to do new stuff in this match and make it like twice as good as any of those.

The ending was awesome. It would've been nice to see more TNA guys out there, but at leaves us wondering what will happen next. Has there ever been this much blood on a wrestling TV show before? RVD should be dead.

AJ vs. Angle was disappointing. These guys just seemed like they were rushed.

Get Hogan off TV. He's been saying the same crap over and over, taking it to the next level, blah blah blah. Dude probably does more harm trying to praise other guys than good.

TNA has been really good the past few months now, as good of a period as I can remember since I started watching it. Really hope they don't decide to change directions like they always do when things start getting hot.

All we're missing is the Wolfpac. A great show up until Hogan came out, then we have a total lack of logic. EV2 was saying goodbye, why the fuck would Fortune care since they'll be gone anyway. I think Abyss will reveal the Wolfpac as "they".

The show was pretty good, but again, the big weak link is Mike Tenay. He doesn't know how to sell the product and Taz can't carry commentary by himself.

Well Mike Tenay is now under the assumption that Abyss is now referring to "they" as Fortune....which is weird considering his feud with Flair.

Other than that, great show.

Overall, a pretty good show. MMG vs Beer Money was definitely the match of the night.

Great show. If you didn't like that tag match, you need to check for a pulse. That might be the best tag match I have ever seen. Very solid Impact. If only it was that good every week.

Fantastic Impact last night. Almost every match on the card was exciting and produced something great. The MCMG vs Beer Money was Tag Team MOTY if not MOTY period. Angle vs Styles as well as Abyss and RVD were also excellent matches in their own right. The mark in me didn't care for the EV2.0 crew to get absolutely beat the tar out of (felt particularly bad for FBI, Guido and Marmaluke took some pretty bad blade jobs), but I understood the story progression. This is the first time I've actually felt like AJ Styles (or Kazarian for that matter) was a heel, because I honestly wanted New Jack or somebody to come down and beat the crap out of him. Reaction wasn't half bad either and they gave people a reason to tune into their third hour. Great night of wrestling and storylines.

And Madison Rayne gave me sweet dreams in her little pink number. Diva question, if Angelina Love is only 28, why does she look like she's 40? Ugh!

No idea why Love was part of Beautiful People when she's ugly and has the face of a man.

Yet more awful news, but Lance Cade has passed away. Not surprising news in the least, but this is always sad to hear. he had a lot of potential, but pissed it all away for no reason.

I agree that Tenay isn't explosive and doesn't get anyone excited, but I think he's solid and isn't a negative for TNA.

Unrelated...Last night I watched some of the Hell in the Cell DVD, and it just amazes me how often and willing Foley was putting his body at risk in those matches.

I'd just like to add my opinion on the TNA commentators- I'd rather hear dying cats outside of my window than either Tazz or Tenay commentate a match.

And RIP Lance Cade- Not surprising after being reminded (sort of) of his troubles over the last couple years but still sad.

WWE DIVA SUSPENDED FOLLOWING INCIDENT AT WWE TV HOTEL
By Mike Johnson on 2010-08-13 15:14:44
WWE Diva Tiffany (Taryn Terrell) was suspended by World Wrestling Entertainment earlier this week after an incident in San Jose, California at the hotel WWE had booked talents into, according to numerous sources within the company.

The incident, which WWE sources claim was a domestic issue between Terrell and husband Drew McIntryre, led to police being called to the scene. We have conflicting reports over whether Terrell was arrested by the San Jose PD. PWInsider.com is awaiting a return call from the San Jose Police Department's Public Affairs office.

Terrell, who was scheduled to wrestle this Sunday at the Summerslam PPV, was sent home by WWE management after the incident, according to two separate sources.

WWE has not publicly acknowledged the suspension or any potential change to the PPV as I write this.

Add me to the list of folks here who thought last night's TNA show was simply amazing!!! I got goosebumps seeing the crowd's reaction to the MCMG-Beer Money tag match! And this was even before the bell rang! What followed was simply some of the best in-ring action and psychology I have ever seen ... and I have been a pro wrestling fan for more than 20 years! Kudos to TNA for giving these amazing talents a chance to shine and prove why they are the top tag teams in the biz right now ... period.

The rest of the show was entertaining from start to finish! My only gripe is that we had to wait until REACTION to hear what Ric Flair had to say on the mic about beating the crap out of EV2. But I'm definitely looking forward to what will happen next.

Btw, I thought REACTION was a pretty great show! All storyline-driven and it gave the TNA roster a chance to shine and show off more of their individual personalities. And for the record, I think Angelina Love is a very attractive gal. But damn .. those Beautiful People sure have mastered the art of the potty mouth ... haha.

And Dixie Carter ... yes, she's a beautiful woman, but her acting skills need some work. Tone it down, Dixie!
