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

MR. ANDERSON: “I DON’T WANT TO BE WRESTLING IN FIVE YEARS TIME!”

Mr. Anderson: Wants out of the grapple game within five years.

Mr. Anderson: Wants out of the grapple game within five years.

IMPACT Wrestling star Ken Anderson told the Dover Post that he doesn’t plan to stick with wrestling for much longer.

“If I’m still doing this five years from now, please, just shoot me,” Anderson said. “I love the wrestlingbusiness, I love entertaining people, but it doesn’t define me. And for people who are defined by this, that’s fine. I don’t judge them or look down on them, but it’s not for me. After 13 years of taking abuse I have aches and pains, and my wife calls me the old man a lot — more than I would like for her to call me. But I know that I can’t do this forever.”

Anderson said he would like to continue acting once his career ends:

“‘E.T.’ was the first movie I ever saw in the theater, and I remember looking at my mom and asking, ‘How does somebody do that? I want to be Elliott.’ It just so happens to be that I live in the greatest country in the world where you can do anything you want. And if you want to be an actor and you work hard at it, you can do that.

“I’d like to transition into movies, TV, maybe some behind-the-scenes stuff here at TNA, or as a commentator. Eventually, my plan is to move to Wyoming on a big place of land and hunt, and fish, and spend time with my family and travel, and do some charity work.”

Jeff Jarrett was back from Mexico to celebrate his birthday. He brought his own presents to the party, for the members of Immortal. Plus, Sting got his rematch against Ken Anderson for the World title.

The show opened with a look at Sting’s odd behavior in recent weeks. Bully Ray told Ken Anderson that he was either with Immortal or against them. Immortal got a new member with Ken Anderson

WHAT’S MY ANGLE?: “ANDERSON’S REIGN”

Shouldn’t Roode be the one getting the push?

So Mr Anderson joins Immortal, smart move I guess. Immortal has needed a lead heel since the departure of Jeff Hardy and I guess Anderson fits the bill.

I have been a little disappointed in Anderson of late in truth, he is one of the best in the business on the mic but I’m not convinced he brings much else to the table.

This could be a little harsh, I myself thought his original title reign was a little short and thought he deserved a little more time to show us what he could do and now that he holds the title, for me something about it seems a little flat. Read more of this post
