TNA Xplosion: Air Date 24th September 2014

Xplosion has won me back.

By reuniting Rockstar Spud and Jeremy Borash.

To be honest, I think I prefer them to Taz and Mike Tenay.

Yes, I'm serious.

As for the Xplosion Xclusive they were commenting on, it was fun.

Magnus is always welcome.

And I love seeing the Menagerie on Xplosion. They fit in better with the more family friendly atmosphere that Xplosion has nowadays.

Although I have to ask: how much can the Freak see through that mask? It looks pretty opaque.

Oh, and where was Bram?

I know he and Magnus aren't attached at the hip, but the Freak had Rebel, Knux and Crazzy Steve.

You'd think Bram would take any excuse to come out and do the bug-eyed stare at somebody.

Shifting gears, the Match of the Week was great.

Carrying on from the tag team hoedowns of recent weeks, we got an awesome three-way tag team championship bout.

Bad Influence versus Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez versus Kurt Angle and AJ Styles.

And yes, I know they weren't technically Bad Influence at that point. It's easier to type.

This match had some mind-blowing spots.

Christopher Daniels freaking out at a two-count is one of the funniest things you can see.

And I wish I'd seen more of Chavo and Hernandez teaming up. They were good.

You know, I would be utterly satisfied with this as the new status quo for Xplosion.

It's good, light-hearted family entertainment. What more could you ask for in a B -show?

If You Were Gay, That'd Be Okay

TNA has a spectacularly messed-up view of MOGII people.

I know I touched on this briefly in my No Surrender review, but I think it bears closer examination.

Let's look at their issues with lesbians first.

Image © Nmdesigns via Wikimeda Commons.

Now, I know we've tried to forget a lot of Hulk Hogan's time in TNA, but I'm sure we all remember Winter.

How could we not? She spent several weeks haunting Angelina Love as a ghost. Then she tried to become her best friend.

And when that didn't work, she used drugged water to mind control her.

Or to put it another way, Winter was in love with Angelina, and that made her a creepy date-raping stalker.

That's a worrying conclusion.

Or how about another example, Brittany?

She started off as an over-eager, innocent fangirl sort, desperate to be friends with Madison Rayne.

And when Madison tried to turn her down, she got creepy. She started shrieking for Madison to like her.

And she even turned heel because she felt rejected.

Or to put it another way, Brittany was in love with Madison, and that made her turn creepy and evil.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

To be fair, though, this isn't a TNA exclusive phenomenon.

The WWE can be just as bad.

I didn't see it when it aired, but I've heard of the Mickie James and Trish Stratus storyline they had.

And from what my friend who likes WWE tells me, Paige and AJ Lee's 'frenemies' thing is more of this.

And when wrestling isn't giving us creepy lesbians, it uses lesbianism to titillate instead.

Just look at how the Beautiful People pretend they're going to kiss in their entrance just to annoy people.

Both use lesbian attraction to get cheap heat.

Either lesbians are crazy bitches trying to steal your girl, or they're teases trying to give you blue balls.

It's not exactly flattering, is it?

But there's one demographic that TNA treats even worse. And that's bisexual men.

Image courtesy of Wikimeda Commons.

I don't even want to touch the complete mess that was Orlando Jordan's character.

Considering that Jordan himself is bisexual, I have no idea how everyone screwed up so badly.

Confusing bisexuality with polyamory by giving him two partners.

Having him molest men and women alike.

And worst of all, his tag-team with Eric Young during the latter's brain damage period.

And they're not doing much better now with Samuel Shaw.

First he's a creepy stalker who becomes overly attached to Christy Hemme and steals her hair.

Now he's a creepy stalker who's become overly attached to Gunner and tries on his clothes.

Does it work for Shaw's character?

Yes. But at the same time, TNA seems to think that all bisexual men are dangerous predators and that's utter rubbish.

This wouldn't matter so much if TNA had more positive lesbian and bisexual characters. But they don't.

Image © Benson Kua via Flickr.

These are the only ones we're getting. And really, all TNA seems to be saying is that lesbians and bisexual men are gross and scary.

And that is a problem.

TNA No Surrender: UK Air Date 21st September 2014

This review may be incredibly late, but it's finally here. And how was No Surrender?

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of CJ Blaze via TNANews.com.

What I'm going to say maybe controversial. But it's true.

I don't get Chris Melendez.

Maybe I'm just not the target audience. Either way, the adoration baffles me.

His match with Kenny King was alright, though. Both of them need a good feud, so it works.

But they're going for the leg a bit early, aren't they? It's the cheapest disability heat you can hit. Save it for later.

Unless it's a reference to Guardians of the Galaxy, I suppose.

And Ken Anderson getting involved works too. So no real complaints there.

What I may have a complaint about are the developments between Gunner and Samuel Shaw.

What do Orlando Jordan, Winter, Brittany and Samuel Shaw have in common?

If your answer is "Creepy unsettling attractions to people of the same gender", you've seen the problem I see.

Image © Pedrohoneto via Wikimedia Commons.

Maybe it's supposed to be hero worship from Shaw.

But it certainly looks like TNA have issues with bi men and lesbians.

Oh, and thanks for dropping Brittany and Madison Rayne's plot to shoehorn her in here. Totally necessary.

As for the Knockouts, let's talk about Havok.

Havok is glorious.

She slew the competition in the Knockouts Battle Royale with ease.

And I cannot wait for her title shot against Gail Kim.

It's going to be spectacular.

The X Division, though? Not so much.

The wrestling is still good. But the results are so predictable that I'm calling them before the matches even start.

The only interesting thing related to the division is James Storm's cult of former jobbers.

I have no idea where they're going with that, incidentally. But it's fascinating and I love it.

The highlight of the evening was probably the third of what I call the Tag Team Hoedown matches.

Image © Anton via Wikimedia Commons.

I knew the Wolves would win to even up the victories. But I still enjoyed it.

There was enough action to keep my attention. There were some great spots. And Eddie got to grab the belts as consolation for taking the loss two matches in a row.

Great stuff.

And finally, the Battle of the Bobbys for the Heavyweight Championship.

This was good stuff. For starters, it had enough time to build, develop and grow as a main event, which is rare with TNA these days.

Roode put up a great fight and still looked strong despite the loss.

And as for Lashley, I have no idea who's going to beat this man.

Not EY. Not Jess Hardy. Not Austin Aries. And not Bobby Roode.

They're running out of people who can do it.

At this rate, they'll either have to surprise us with AJ Styles (not likely) or get Kurt Angle himself to do it.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

Despite my petulant whinging, this was a pretty good episode.

Its stories are progressing nicely. And even when they confuse me, they still have some sort of internal consistency.

And I'm looking forward to the next episode.

TNA Xplosion: Air Date 17th September 2014

This episode of Xplosion was the best I have seen in a long time.

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of Wikipedia.

Why? Three words: Rockstar Spud wrestled.

And he wrestled Crazzy Steve in the Xplosion Xclusive.

The last time I saw something this ridiculous, it was Rockstar Spud teaming with Bully Ray at One Night Stand. Spud nearly pulled Austin Aries's trunks off.

This was sillier.

We had the referee putting Rockstar Spud in an armlock. Spud having a tantrum and staging a sit-down protest. And Crazzy Steve riding Spud like a pony.

It was a hilarious mess from start to finish and I couldn't stop smiling.

Image © Pokipsy76 via Wikimedia Commons.

Some people may think wrestling is serious business. And yes, sometimes it is.

But sometimes, you just want to cut loose and have a nonsense match like this.

And it was so welcome.

As for the Match of the Week, it was one of those that make me wistful.

AJ Styles and Kurt Angle versus Bad Influence for the Tag Team Championships?

Yeah. That makes me nostalgic for what we could have had if those three awesome guys had stayed.

But the wrestling was fantastic. And the appletini to the face was a classic Christopher Daniels screw-over.

Image © George Pankewytch via Flickr.

So I can't be too sad.

I've been saying for a few weeks that Xplosion needed its sparkle back.

And this episode brought it. I had a lot of goofy fun, and I can't wait for some more.

This is what Xplosion should always be: the light-hearted b-side.

Please keep this up, TNA.

TNA Impact: UK Air Date 14th September 2014

It's the last Impact before No Surrender. Did it set up the show?

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of Rasslor.

We'll start as Impact did: with Sergeant Chris Melendez.

This may be heretical, but I think he's getting a touch more pomp and circumstance than is absolutely necessary.

But he can wrestle and his match with DJ Z was good, so what the heck.

Of course, his mentors Team 3D are still part of what I like to call the Tag Team Hoedown.

The matches between the Wolves, the Hardys and Team 3D are great. The wrestling is awesome, and I really enjoy them.

But. And there is always a but.

Why is Eddie Edwards always the fall guy?

If I'm remembering this right, he got hit by the 3D AND he was the one who went through the table.

It just seems unfair for one man to be taking all the punishment. Just saying.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

Speaking of punishment, James Storm officially has a Cabin of Creepiness and Brainwashing.

Why? I don't know. But do I like it? Oh hell yes. It's so weird that it's probably my favourite part of the show right now.

And Storm's tag match with the Great Sanada against Austin Aries and Tajiri was awesome.

Still creepy, though.

Speaking of creepy, TNA apparently want Samuel Shaw and Brittany to hook up.

Did they resolve Brittany's probable crush on Madison Rayne? No.

Is Brittany still a heel? I don't know.

Does Brittany need to be here? No.

The plot was working fine with Gunner and Shaw. TNA didn't need to fling her in randomly too.

Although flinging people together at random seems to be working for the BroMans and the Beautiful People.

And it was nice to see Rebel actually wrestle for the first time in their match against the Menagerie.

Image © Glenn Francis (Toglenn), www.PacificProDigital.com, via Wikimedia Commons.

It was light-hearted, and it was fun. More, please.

Our final tag team match of the week – Bobby Roode, EY & Joe versus MVP's lot – worked well for me.

Roode got the pin, so he has momentum going into No Surrender. But he pinned MVP, so Lashley looks strong too.

It's left me excited for the bout and that's a good thing.

Another clash I'm anticipating is the inevitable one between Havok and Gail Kim. I couldn't be looking forward to it more if I tried.

Havok seems amazing and I'm sure she'll be mind-blowing in a proper match.

And finally, the random Street Fight we had because... Rhino, I suppose.

I do hope that this feud with Rhino ends with Rockstar Spud turning on EC3 and then a feud between the two of them.

Otherwise I really don't know what TNA are planning here.

And I wish they'd stop reminding me about Dixie Carter and the table already.

Image © chriscoven via DeviantArt.

Oh, and the Knockouts Calendar bit was pointless drivel and my least favourite part of the show until Havok arrived.

This episode was a decent prelude to No Surrender. And hopefully the PPV will be at least as good, if not better.

She's A Killer Queen

I don't watch WWE. But I have a friend who does.

Image © WWE courtesy of Wikimedia Commons.

For the most part, he likes the show. But if there's one thing he hates, it's the way that the Divas' division works.

And so today, I'm going to use what he's told me of the Divas to explain what it is that TNA is doing right with the Knockouts.

According to my friend, the most obvious problem with the Divas is that most of them have the personality of a rotten banana skin.

AJ Lee and Paige are likeable. And if Stephanie McMahon counts as a Diva, then she is too.

But the rest? A black hole of charisma.

Not so with the Knockouts.

Are they thespians? No. But they all have their own verbal quirks and personalities.

The Beautiful People are the pretty popular girls. Madison Rayne is determined. Gail Kim is the strong confident veteran.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

And they're all pleasant to listen to. They don't have any grating verbal tics. More on that later.

But is talking all that important when we have wrestling?

Well, that's problem number two: most of the Divas can't wrestle. Or they aren't allowed to.

AJ, Paige and a few others can.

But do they get screen-time? Of course not!

The WWE are too busy putting on asinine segments with Jerry Springer to have women wrestle each other!

Not so with the Knockouts.

Do they get as much screen-time as they deserve? No.

But when they do, they wrestle. And for the most part, they do it well. Especially our Knockouts champion Gail Kim.

Which is another problem with the Divas. The WWE don't care about their belt.

They give Brie and Nikki Bella more screen time that the Divas champion and her challenger.

And then they shoehorn the Bella Twins into the championship plot for no decent reason.

Image © GabboT via Flickr.

In other words, they ignore the good so they can force more of the bad down our throats.

Which brings us to the final, biggest problem with the Divas.

Their storylines are awful.

Brie and Nikki Bella have some of the most terrible lines ever given to a performer. "I wish you'd died in the womb", anybody?

Nikki can't stop saying the phrase "Y'know". It's worse than Hulk Hogan saying "brother".

And Paige and AJ aren't doing much better with their psycho lesbian frenemies schtick.

Has TNA had some bad storylines with the Knockouts? Sure.

After all, you could equally call Brittany's obsession with Madison a psycho lesbian crush.

But Madison herself, Gail Kim, Taryn Terrell, Havok, even the Beautiful People?

Their focus is on the Knockouts Championship. Their focus is on the competition.

Their focus is on the wrestling.

And that's where it should be.

So what's the short reason why Knockouts are "better than Divas"?

Image © Pedrohoneto via Wikimdedia Commons.

Because TNA don't just let their women wrestle. They encourage their women to wrestle. They celebrate their women's wrestling.

Divas are eye candy amateur actors. Knockouts are wrestlers.

And that is what's wrong with the Divas.

TNA Xplosion: Air Date 10th September 2014

What happened to Xplosion?

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of Wikipedia.

This show used to be funny. It used to be goofy. It used to have meaning.

But now? It's dull.

Did they just move all the interesting stuff to Saturday morning?

Or is this really what they consider to be family friendly entertainment?

Because I know for a fact that I would have hated this at ten.

The opening segment with Jeremy Borash presenting has nothing to it.

No jokes. No fun. No wit.

And worst of all, no Rockstar Spud.

Is this because he's making a face turn? Is he no longer the Chief of Staff?

He's still ex-British Boot Camp. Why wouldn't they keep him around to promote that?

The Xplosion Xclusive match between Gail Kim and Brittany was good.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

But as always, it was obvious from the start that Brittany would lose.

She never wins. Why start now?

And the Match of the Week just made me sad.

Zema Ion, X Division Champion, defending and retaining his belt.

And now look at him. DJ Z, comedy sidekick to the BroMans and perennial jobber.

The interviews are the same uninspired segments copied verbatim from TNA #365 on Impact.

The Impact Wrestling Rewind is what it says on the tin.

There's nothing special about Xplosion any more. It's lost what identity it had and replaced it with blandness.

I miss the Spin Cycle. I miss Spud. And I miss the days when Xplosion was a light-hearted B side to Impact.

Because right now, it's boring.

TNA Impact: UK Air Date 7th September 2014

Another week, another Impact. How did it go?

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of Rasslor.

Let's start with that lingering plot thread of Bobby Roode, EY and the #1 Contendership.

And MVP was trying to drive a wedge between Roode and EY.

Why? It's not entirely clear.

Maybe so he and Bobby Lashley keep strength in numbers. Or maybe just to be an ass.

Who knows?

The match was great, though. And it was nice to see Roode and EY still shake hands.

Conversely, Lashley's match with Samoa Joe was not great because it was too short.

It ended so soon that it felt like an anticlimax.

Though I must admit that TNA are doing a wonderful job of painting Lashley as an unstoppable monster.

And Kenny King's interference meant Joe looked good as well.

But I can't say the same for half the X Division, which is why theirs was my least favourite match.

DJ Z, Manik, Tigre Uno and Crazzy Steve never win anything.

Image © Tabercil via Wikimedia Commons.

There's no suspense in a six man match when you narrow the victor down to one of two in the first five seconds.

And I'm sure Joe versus Homicide will be fun, but couldn't somebody else have a chance? Please?

Another X Division guy who isn't jobbing is Austin Aries, who called out James Storm and the Great Sanada over last week.

And he and Tajiri facing Storm and Sanada should be awesome.

Oh, and James Storm has Manik now. He wants to collect the whole X Division set, apparently.

Storm is kinda terrifying.

As is Havok, who made her debut by beating the crap out of Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell.

Havok scares me.

Oh, and Gail and Taryn's match was good too, of course.

But yeah. Havok. She's something, alright.

Speaking of the Knockouts, the Beautiful People are now dating the BroMans. Because... reasons.

Should be funny, I suppose.

Which brings me to tag teams.

The TNA #365 segments were all Team 3D, the Hardys and the Wolves.

Image © Anton via Wikimedia Commons.

And because Team 3D got to pick, their next match will be a tables match.

Should be good, though.

Also tagging this week were Shaw and Gunner against Bragnus.

Why is Brittany making eyes at Shaw? Will Shaw and Gunner stay friends? Is Shaw still a creepy bastard?

All excellent questions, and hopefully, TNA will answer in good time.

And finally, my favourite part of the evening.

What was it?

Rockstar Spud and EC3 have broken up at last.

EC3 threw Spud into a match with Rhino, watched him get beaten up, and then just walked away.

Yep. The best friendship in TNA outside the Wolves is probably over.

I'm so hoping that Spud will get to feud with EC3.

I've seen a bit of his wrestling now and he deserves to get a chance to show what he can do in the ring as well as on the mic.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

To summarise, this was a good episode of Impact, and I had fun watching it.

Nice work, TNA. Keep it up.

The Greatest Man That Ever Lived

I gave good reviews to both Impact and Xplosion this week. So I'm going to continue the positive trend with this week's opinion post.

What's it about? A-Double himself Austin Aries, the most over man in TNA today.

Image © Mike Kalasnik via Flickr.

I'm not kidding. You put him in front of a crowd and they'll blow the roof off chanting for him.

Everyone loves the Greatest Man That Ever Lived.

But today, I'm going to ask and answer one simple question: why?

Why is Austin Aries so popular? What is it about him that everybody likes so much?

Let's start shallow and look at the outside. Do we like Aries because of how he looks?

After all, he looks freaking fantastic. I sure as hell wish I looked that good.

He's living proof that you can be plant-powered AND have a physique to die for.

Plus his ring gear has always been amazing.

The man used to wear a furry pink vest to the ring. And now he wears a cape like a freaking superhero.

Image © Jonathan Wong via Flickr.

What could possibly be better than that?

But let's say that that's not the reason he's so popular. What else is there?

How about his attitude?

Aries has a great personality and he's not shy about showing it.

He's stubborn and never gives up, not even in the face of larger or stronger opponents.

He knows how good he is and he refuses to let anybody tell him that he's not good enough.

And he's funny as hell. Every time he decides to take a time out on the top rope in the corner, I crack up laughing.

Again, what could possibly be better?

And finally, the most obvious candidate: his wrestling ability. Do we like Aries because he's a good wrestler?

Because he most certainly is.

Not only is he incredibly talented, but he's also one of the most versatile people you can put in a wrestling ring.

Want him to go high flying in the X Division with a 450ยบ Splash? He can do that.

Want him to go toe-to-toe in a power game with somebody bigger than him and still break out the brainbuster?

Image © Jonathan Wong via Flickr.

He can do that too.

Want him to get down on the mat and technical with submission moves? Well guess what! He can do that!

And not only can he do them, but he can do them all with style.

After all, I've spent enough time gushing about the beauty of the Last Chancery to make you all sick of me.

So why do we like Austin Aries? His looks, his personality, or his skills?

All three, of course.

Austin Aries has something of everything and something for everyone.

He's got the face, he's got the charm, and he's got the ability to put his money where his mouth is.

He really is the complete package.

A great look, a great attitude and some great moves all come together in him to make... well.

The Greatest Man That Ever Lived, of course.

TNA Xplosion: Air Date 3rd September 2014

This Xplosion review may be late, but how was the show?

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of Wikipedia.

First, I never thought I'd say that I miss Rockstar Spud presenting. Yet I do.

I like JB, but he works much better as a straight man to other people's strangeness.

He needed Spud.

Having said that, the matches were excellent.

Our Xplosion Xclusive was the BroMans versus the Wolves and well. You know how much I adore the Wolves.

So two appearances from them in one week? That's a treat.

Although I must say that it would have been nice to see somebody who didn't get a spot on Impact this week instead.

Maybe Bragnus. Or the Beautiful People and Brittany.

Just a thought.

Image © Mshake3 via Wikimedia Commons.

Also, the BroMans haven't beaten the Wolves in months. I knew they weren't going to start winning now.

And what have I said about tension?

Yeah. Exactly.

The Match of the Week is probably foreshadowing. After all, Bound for Glory is the next big PPV, so it makes sense to start teasing the Bound for Glory series.

Samoa Joe versus Jeff Hardy at No Surrender 2012 was awesome.

Joe always rocks, and he sold his arm injury superbly well.

And Jeff did some great work and picked up a sneaky pin.

It was fun, and it had emotional resonance. Everything I ask for.

Image © Charles LeBlanc via Flickr.

And yet this still felt bare bones. Maybe it's the lack of Spud or the Spin Cycle.

Whatever the reason, Xplosion needs to get its sparkle back. The sooner the better.

TNA Impact: UK Air Date 31st August 2014

I've complained about TNA a lot recently.

But this week? I have almost nothing but praise.

Image © TNA Wrestling courtesy of Rasslor.

The Knockouts #1 Contendership match between Madison Rayne and Taryn Terrell was great fun.

Madison using the ropes worries me, though. Unless we bring in a new face Knockout, she shouldn't turn heel.

Which brings me to Havok. I have learnt that there is a female wrestler who uses that name, and it's her coming to TNA.

Which is actually better in my opinion. It's always good to get a new Knockout.

And speaking of new people, Sergeant Chris Melendez looks like an awesome guy and I can't wait to see what he can do in the ring.

And the military link brings us over to Samuel Shaw and Gunner.

I... don't know what's going on there. It's possible that Shaw's obsession has moved from Christy Hemme to Gunner. It's not clear right now.

Still interesting, though.

Also as unclear as when I last wrote about it is the Great Sanada and James Storm.

Image © 2for6 via Wikimedia Commons.

But you know what? I'm not sure I mind so much because it may be weird, but it's also fascinating.

And any plot that gives us more matches between Austin Aries and Sanada is a good one to me.

In other X Division news, Crazzy Steve has technically won a match! I never thought I would live to see the day.

Oh, and the action was good, of course. It's the X Division.

DJ Z may still be on a losing streak, but Robbie E and Jessie have apparently scored with a Knockout, possibly two.

This looks like it's going to be a stupid comedy storyline and I'm all for that. There are several darker plots in TNA right now and it's good to have some comic relief.

Now, this is the point where I'm going to complain.

Image © Nemo via Pixabay.

The talking segments of this episode dragged. And none more so than MVP arguing with Kurt Angle.

When MVP's good, he's fantastic. But when he's bad, he's boring. Low point of the evening.

Also, the New York Street Fight between Bobby Lashley and Tommy Dreamer was... weird.

It felt like nothing more than New York fan service. Which I'm sure was nice for the New York fans, but it left me cold.

Nitpicks over, I have high hopes for the story between EC3 and Rockstar Spud.

If they end up feuding, it could well be the start of Spud actually wrestling in the company. And I would love that to happen.

Oh, and Rhino was there. He was fine.

Speaking of friends, the EY and Bobby Roode segment was another one that dragged. But I'm looking forward to the match next week.

And finally, our main event: what I like to call the Tag Team Hoedown.

Image © Gordon Woolley via Flickr.

It was awesome. High point of the evening. Super-excited for the next one. Nothing more to say.

Just like this episode.

You want to know what a good episode of Impact is like? Watch this one.

– Stark

P.S. Sorry this post is late. I have some family issues going on at the moment, so finding time to write reviews has been difficult.
