Ahhhh I now understand what GigaPepsiMan was talking about. I didn't realise that two different people played the same character.

It also seems that you are right about a future Sin Cara vs Sin Cara match. God that could get confusing!

Undertaker vs Fake Undertaker was bad.
As was Kane vs Fake Kane.
Don't expect any different here. A Double Sin Cara match would have enough botches to fill an episode of botchamania.

Not definitely, this was a showcase to get Syfy to move it as Friday is traditionally a rubbish rating day in the US, plus it would soon have to go up against new UFC programming on the same day which would further split the audience.

Hence why Tuesday is under consideration

Sunday at an earlier time is better than tuesday later time. TNA has been getting good ratings in the uk, if anything the show was moved to sundays because it was popular on the channel.

Its a big boost for the UK, Impact gets the highest ratings on the channel, also it was done to reward the loyal uk public to stop them waiting pretty much a week for the most recent show.
WANTED: ANY SNES or GAMEBOY GAMES, OR EMPTY BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS, going for FULL SETS of both.
