Just one more week and I should be up to date. But now? Xplosion.
First... no. I won't say it.
I want to, but you're sick of it.
So instead, let's talk about intensity.
2006 Samoa Joe had so much of it, and I'd love to see that again.
And the Ultimate X match itself?
It was Joe, Christopher Daniels and AJ Styles. What else would it be but out of this world?
Speaking of the past.
The interviews on this episode were, once again, lifted wholesale from TNA #365 on this week's Impact.
I know this is a B-show, so it recycles material. But it makes it much harder to review when they do this.
And because TNA don't care about the Dixie Carter plot either, they didn't recap it on the Impact Wrestling Rewind.
But more Hardy Boyz and Austin Aries? Always a plus.
JB and Rockstar Spud presented again, and naturally they were funny.
Spud pretending to talk to Victorian Beckham was particularly amusing.
Finally, the Xplosion Xclusive match.
I can't remember the last time the BroMans won anything, and I can't help but feel sorry for them.
And no, Global Impact Japan doesn't count.
Also, I don't know why JB and Mike Tenay kept insisting Ken Anderson and Gunner don't hang out.
We've seen them hanging out on Impact.
Still. It was a good match.
I'd say this was a flawless Xplosion except for the obvious elephant in the room.
Damn I miss AJ and Daniels...
