IMPACT WRESTLING HITS & MISSES 19/07/11

Sting becoming a 4 time TNA World Heavyweight Champion this week on Impact Wrestling

A little bit late this week but nonetheless, here is my weekly rundown of this weeks edition of Impact Wrestling Hits & Misses…

THIS WEEKS HITS

Evil Clowns
Since they are going down the “joker” thing with Sting, it only made sense they used the first part (minus the bus and they didnt shoot each other) of “The Dark Knight”. In a way im glad they didnt use this to introduce new wrestlers to our screens as that would have sucked, but using Fortune was great, as it kept the ongoing feud alive with Immortal alive by the clowns attacking members one by one, plus its quite funny to see Karen screaming and running in heels (should always look in the back seat of cars before getting into them). Gunner looked the strongest of Immortal by wanting to go out looking for them but didnt expect getting jumped by all 4 of them

Samoa Joe vs The Pope vs Robert Roode
Although I like the BFG Series and this week they have stated that there are 8 weeks left but they havent stated how many matches everyone will compete in? So someone like Crimson can have 10 matches but Gunner could have like 5 (in theory). However the match itself was good, playing up more to that Joe thinks he’s keeps gettng screwed by the referee. The match may have lasted 5 minutes or so but it kept all the action coming fast, which was good, the ending I thought was cleverly played out, The pope kicked off the apron and Joe constantly going for the 10 points in any match and it always backfires on him. Hopefully Joe bounces back soon and starts earning some points. Read more of this post

IMPACT WRESTLING HITS & MISSES – 05/07/11

Low Ki vs. Bentley vs. Yang: A definite Hit!

Low Ki vs. Bentley vs. Yang: A definite Hit!

TNA HIT/MISS By Dan McGrath

This is my new column, which i’ll be doing on a weekly basis, just to give my views and opinions on everything that has gone down on Impact Wrestling. These are all completely my views and whether I reckon they are a hit or miss.

This weeks Hits

Low Ki vs Matt Bentley vs Jimmy Yang

First of all, Welcome back Low Ki! After last weeks X division 3 way it was refreshing to see a more of a stable and high action match. This match alone has made me more interested in Destination X, hopefully Eric Bischoff’s one man crusade of killing the x division wont happen and this is the prime example on TNA building up on their “Wrestling Matters” slogan. The match itself plenty of high spots very limited mistakes made in the match, entertaining from the bell and never let any of the action slipped! I’m hoping I see more action like this at Destination X, this is why I started watching TNA!! Read more of this post

20 Questions With...Magnus (Photo: Ray Mullan)

Welcome to the latest instalment of “20 Questions With…”. This week dear readers, one half of the British Invasion – the one and only Magnus!

Before i present the full Q&A i’d like to thank Nick Aldis for taking time out of his busy schedule to do this, he’s a true gent who hasn’t forgotten his roots and i’m sure you’ll agree a great representative of UK Wrestling on the international scene.

I’d also like to thank everyone who sent their questions, the response was fantastic and easily the most popular Q&A we’ve done so far. Finally, I would also like to address those fans who sent marriage proposals (you know who you are!) for Magnus. It’s not really my place to be asking the man such questions, so your probably better tweeting him directly. And no, I am not joking, there were three in total! Anyway dear readers, onwards as Magnus answers your questions: Read more of this post
