    Last year's PPVs were so good. Hard To Kill was awesome. The direction they've taken lately was basically the worst possible way they could have gone. They're going extra hard into the ECW/Lucha Underground elements of their product which is not a good use of talents like Blanchard, Elgin, Swann, TJP, The North, etc who are the best wrestlers they have.

    Feels like Impact have taken a noticeable drop down in quality recently. Far too much cartoony stuff. And while Moose's TNA World Title is basically just an interim Title its still a dumb move. Does anyone outside of Impact management like Moose? He's pretty much universally disliked for being so damn unremarkable in every way yet they keep pushing him. The stubbornness of Wrestling promoters to get their guy 'over' / on top no matter what just keeps getting worse.

    I hate Moose so much I wanted Shamrock to beat him last year. And that's saying something. He's an average wrestler and his promos are awful. I guess TNA management value 'the look'.

    I'll pile on and add that I also think Moose isn't anywhere near a main event talent. The guy has plenty of good tools, but his talking ability makes Jack Swagger looks like Jake Roberts by comparison. He shouldn't be working a flashy gimmick. If anything, he needs to be a man of few words who just uses his size and athleticism to dominate. Yeah, the trope is arguably overdone, but it only makes sense when you consider his attributes.

    Used to hate Moose, back when he was being pushed as the top good guy of the company, but I was kinda into when he first went heel and was hanging with Aries. All the flashy coats and what not.

    Back to not being a huge fan but being the arrogant "champion" while we wait for Tessa to come back seems ok. Looking at the impact roster it could have been a lot worse...coulda been Hernandez.

    Re: Impact Wrestling on AXS TV Discussion

    I’ve been back and forth with Moose. I think he’s good enough in the ring that he can have good matches with smaller wrestlers. I also like his “Moose” taunt thing with the crowd. It gets over. I also like how they produce his entrance like he’s a main eventer. Although they could do that for anyone that they want, and that kind of makes me mad that they don’t do it for the right people. Moose now talks too much and he isn’t good on the mic, and his wrestling style as a heel is boring. He’s way funner as a babyface powerhouse who does his spots and goes home.

    I also agree with the sentiment that they have been relying too much lately on ridiculous overtop garbage for the Knockouts and bad wrestling. Get Hernandez out of here. Get these ECW guys outta there. Does anybody want to see Johnny Swinger on their TV? I was all for the Tessa experiment but I think that they need to by firing on all cylinders for people to give it leeway.

    I like The North and Willie Mack. Willie Mack is a star. All they gotta do is let him be a star.

    Here goes Impact. I'll try to write up a full review of it as it goes on.

    Well, Deonna Purrazzo has found her way to Impact. I have limited exposure to her, so I can't really say I'm excited by the signing or anything like that but good on Impact for continuing to give people work and it never hurts to have more Knockouts in the mix. I hope she solidifies herself with the company and the investment pays off.

    That's a great pickup by Impact that seems to be making an effort to restock their womens division.

    Agreed. But if they get her involved in supernatural bullshit, I won't be a happy man.
