TNA Impact: UK Air Date 23rd November 2014

Let's talk Impact.

Now before I do anything else, I need to attack the tangled mess of MVP, Kenny King and Bobby Lashley's plot-lines.

Lashley wants his rematch against Bobby Roode. So far, so good.

But at the same time, Lashley and MVP were angry at each other. Or maybe they're not. I'm not sure.

And now MVP is attacking Kurt Angle because #MVPMakesBadDecisions. And I bet you never thought I'd bring that out again, did you?

But wait! We've also got Kenny King, who injured Chris Melendez in their match. Which means that Ken Anderson is getting involved.

And so all six of these men got into a big punch-up at the end of the show.

I'm assuming that there's going to be a big six-man tag match to sort this out now? I don't know.

At least Bram and Tommy Dreamer's story is simple: they want to smack each other's heads in with the contents of the nearest Home Depot.

Also Al Snow was there. Because... ECW, I suppose?

Either way, Bram won, which I liked. Yes, Magnus interfered, but they're still doing a good job of making Bram look tough. And that's all you can ask for, really.

Bram and Dreamer weren't the only ones bleeding, though. Somehow, EC3 managed to bust himself open by headbutting Rockstar Spud.

Who knew the guy had such a hard head?

Still, I'm loving the drama going on here. The fact that Spud keeps coming back every single time is real underdog stuff and it works so well.

Although kicking EC3 in the balls when Tyrus is around was still a bad decision.

And speaking of bad decisions, Mahabali Shera still wants to join the Revolution. Because apparently he didn't see them assaulting the Wolves last week.

Seriously, people, watch the show you're on. It's not hard.

As for Manik, he was part of an excellent X Division Championship match.

I'm not surprised that Low Ki won. But I enjoyed it anyway, so take from that what you will.

Of course, we also had a Knockouts Championship match on the card. And I thought its psychology was well-executed.

Havok lost the belt, but it took two other women to take her down. Gail Kim lost, but she had an injury. And Taryn Terrell managed to defeat two opponents to win her first Knockouts Championship.

Everybody came out looking strong and competent. And that's the best kind of title match you can ask for.

Can't wait for the re-match.

And finally, the #TNA365 stuff. It was utterly pointless and didn't add anything except more footage of Brittany and Samuel Shaw sucking face.

Seriously, TNA: we didn't need that.

I may sound a bit lacklustre about the show in tis review, but it's because it was more wrestling than story and that makes it hard to comment on.

I'm a writer, you see. I know story best.

Would I recommend you see it if you haven't? Yes.

And that's all that needs saying.
