TNA Xplosion Report – Friday 18/06/2010

By Raymond Mullan

Report Syndicated at Lords of Pain

Broadcast Friday 18/06/2010 at 9pm on the Extreme Sports Channel

Host: Jeremy Borash

In case you haven’t heard yet and somehow missed the big article I have on the main page of the site – , TNA are planning to revamp the format of their syndicated Xplosion TV show to make it more of a one-hour original program and not just a recap show as it is now. TNA is planning on placing more emphasis on the Xplosion show from now on. Whilst the magazine format of Xplosion does serve a purpose its obviously not a ratings winner and I know sitting through old content for an hour for the sake of one new match a week can be a chore for myself at times, I don’t think I needed to be insane to keep watching this show, but it probably helped. The changes are to occur from the post-Slammiversary TV tapings so this my friends, likely marks the end of the magazine format, a turning point for the Xplosion show, next week should be real exciting! If your in the UK don’t miss next weeks show, if your reading this elsewhere, now you have more reason to read this report! Now onward with this weeks report!

We get the TNA Xplosion Opening Theme and we join our host Jeremy Borash, backstage at the iMPACT! Zone who welcomes us to the show, runs down the matches we’ll be seeing tonight.
