Were they hoping lynn / rvd would do 35 min or so, cause this is the second to last match and sabu/rvd isn't going that long

I love the irony of them using a "DEAD END" road sign at a TNA event.

I'm starting to feel bad for shitting on this event for how much entertainment ECW provided me. This Dreamer/Raven match is ok, and there has been some fun, but just ugh.

The Dreamer/Raven match has been the sole highlight for me so far. They fucked it up with all that BWO nonsense though. I can get that they're trying to stretch things out a bit since it's still early but there was no point to that at all.

How are Taz and Tenay roasting this thing? Is it so bad even the commentators can't overlook it's flaws? Sounds like this is going to be one of the death nails in TNA's coffin.

BravesMG said it earlier in the thread and he hit the nail on the head. They're treating it more like a joke than a serious event.

Tenay said it at the beginning, he's treating this more as a fan than a commentator. They're constantly making fun of the stupid names (Cajones especially) and basically winking the entire time that the whole thing is just for fun. Which would be fine if they weren't charging $35 for the PPV, but this doesn't look or feel like an authentic show at all. It feels like a reunion and to have this kind of reunion show on PPV puts expectations too high.

If this kind of fun and goofy memorial show was their plan, this should have been on Spike and gone with the original PPV. I understand that they wanted to give it a shot since their PPV numbers blow anyway, but it's not really fair to the wrestlers or ECW to say this the true way to remember them in my opinion.

Why is the arena so dark? Seriously, I don't remember the old ECW PPV's being this badly lighted. They're charging $35 for this might as well make this look good. The crowd is pretty dead for the main event. RVD and Sabu seem to be just going through the motions.

And yeah Taz is cracking jokes every few lines.

It seems like they heat up for a spot and then drop right back into silence.

RVD's theme is freaking terrible.

The fans chanted "F*** You Vince." Tommy Dreamer got on the mic and thanked Mike Tenay and Tazz for calling the show. He then thanked Atlas Security and Dixie Carter. Brother Ray carried Dixie around the ring and put her on the apron as fans chanted "TNA". Tommy Dreamer said "To all the men and women in TNA, we set the bar, and we expect you to raise it". Dreamer said it was "One hell of an F'N PPV" and thanked Dixie as the show ended.
wow... a guess the fuck you from vince would be a bleeping dvd...


TNA is a real shit hole... they had their chance to compete with WWSUCKSE but instead Dixie doesnt know what to do... they said the PPV was good... its was barely shit..

With the exception of the last match, this was D+ show at best. TNA's bookers should be ashamed of this garbage and so should anyone who'd $45 for it.

I absolutely cannot wait for Thursday to see the final match in the best of 5 series between MCMG & Beer Money

If people wondered why I was so quiet during the PPV, its cuz I was watching & enjoying the show instead of acting like the usual internet wrestling marks that can't stand back & enjoy a PPV for what it is....

I'm not saying it was a 5 star PPV but it was what it was & of course people being idiots (you know who you are) can't give credit where its due....

I loved the "F U Vince", that made my night

If enjoying this PPV gave you the impression that I'm drinking Dixie's Kool Aide, then brother...call me Kool Aide Man
