TNA Xplosion: Air Date 21st May 2014

Last night was my first episode of Xplosion. How did I find it?

First, the "Don't try this" pieces with EY and Rockstar Spud were adorable. Just saying.

The Xsplosion Xclusive match between Velvet Sky and Madison Rayne had great action. But the crowd could only have been more dead if the ring were in a graveyard.

And while Madison winning was fine, Velvet having a tantrum afterwards was... weird.

The Impact 365 segment was the same Wolves and BroMans segment from Impact, which was fine.

The Spin Cycle was hilarious.

Essentially, EC3 and Rockstar Spud were competing with the BroMans and DJ Z in the wrestling version of Pictionary.

One team member had to draw a wrestler; the others, guess who it was.

All the drawings were hilariously awful, and the segment was great fun.

If you haven't seen it, check it out.

The Match of the Week was the main event from last year's Slammiversary.

I like the concept of Match of the Week. It gives the viewer some of TNA's past as well as a bit of good wrestling.

And finally, the Impact flashback for this week focussed on the storyline between EY and MVP. It had their opening promo and their match.

Again, this was fine. And I've made my feelings clear on this plot already.

To summarise, Xplosion is an amusing show with inoffensive flashbacks and fun original content.

Will I watch it again next week? Most definitely.

See you tomorrow with an opinion piece.
