Impact wrestling is all over the place, the main event scene is copy paste, as are most of the storylines

NJPW G1 special was bloody great

Liger was getting tons of respect from the audience
Omega really is one of the BITW
Loads of great matches, even the c**p ones had there moments

Just watching Slamiversary on Spike at the moment, not watch TNA/Impact for years, felt it totally went down hill, but watching tonight, seems like a bit of the old magic has been rekindled, quite a few old faces from the past popping up too, including the mighty booty daddy, bigg papa pump Scott Steiner, Shark boy, LAX with Konan! Even Don West back on the announcers table.
It's probably the best PPV they've put out in years and the Matthews/Steiner vs. Borash/Park segment either rips off the Broken Hardy's, or lends further credence to the suggestion Borash was the brains behind it all the time. Either way, very entertaining.

I really hope the end of that ambulance match was an official double turn.

Also: has Brock ever more closely resembled boiled ham than he did last night?

Slightly RAW boiled ham

He was not really arsed with that match, if he actually was they could of gone a bit MMA
Well done WWE on making someone look strong only to have him look weak during the match

let's talk about the issue with WWE PPVs terrible names we ued to get survivor series(which was a unique ppv to start but it got changed) wrestlemania, summer slam, no way out now it's either name it after a match or give it a silly name like gbof(apart from staples like wm). whilst i'm here can someone explain when a battle royal becomes a royal rumble also if a company did a 10 man battle royal but called it a rumble could wwe sue(or would the full royal rumble title need to be used to class as infringement)

A battle royal is every one starting in the ring at once, the rumble is them entering individually. I would imagine the rumble name is copyrighted but battle royal is a generic term so anyone could use that.

Really enjoyed the joe Brock match and they seem to like working with each other. Joe is one of those people who just looks naturally intimidating which made it more believable, so has come out strong despite losing.

I know FWE(defunct) a uk company who once claimed to have not only a tribute act to undertaker but in the same show the real taker but they had a 15 man rumble and waw 40 man rumble

About 15 years ago a lot of UK promotions claimed to have some WWF guys, TBF they looked like them fro ma distance

In saying that from a distance I look like Kevin Nash
