    Not that bad. The show was pretty good but the main event weren’t that good to be honest, it was a 20 min match with the first 3 mins being the same old
    -Sabin kick-
    -Bully slap-
    -Repeated 10 times-

    Then it was Bully dominating the match for about 15 mins and then Sabin gets a shot with a hammer to pin and win… I think unless Bully will beat him for the title back then it was a bit stupid since it made the new champ look weak, unless they are going to make it an even bigger deal when Sabin beats Bully again.

      I think the story leading up to the steel cage will be “Did Sabin get lucky?” It would make him look strong as ever if he beats Bully clean. I was there in L-Ville for the impact tapings and I agree….I was a bit disappointed in the match at the start but I thought the finish was good. I’m also surprised that there hasn’t been a injury update on Petey Williams. He had to be helped back to the back after the gringo killer by Homicide. Ref did the X and everything.

        Seriously? Petey got hurt? That sucks, he is one of my favourite wrestlers… I did think that Gringo killer was a bit risky though since Petey seemed a bit too low when he was going to drop him, hopefully it is only a minor injury or they were selling it or something?

    Very clever on TNA’s part to be putting on these specials and good to see it’ll be a regular thing too. Good to see the ratings up. Glad to see Sabin as champion, the guy deserves it.

    Hardcore Justice is ecw playground, Bully shall regain his title.

    • Pozessed

      I hope so, Sabin just isn’t ready… They will need a good big story for him to beat Bully.

    Chris Sabin better hand that TNA title back to its rightful owner. He’s walking around with a title that is not his, and rumor has it that he stole the hammer too. And Sabin better not only hand the belt and the hammer back to him, but he better join them as well.
    And AJ Styles… he is sporting the black and white. “No One” lmao…. just jump aboard and join the new NWO already AJ. too Sweeeeeet!

    • Vargas

      Can’t believe this would get thumbs down. We’ve got a lot of uptight geeks up in here. You’re not allowed to be sarcastic or funny up in here apparently.

        I don’t care dude… thumbs up/down don’t mean jack sh*t to me. That feature is worthless and corny, I myself don’t even use it lol

    What i see here, was Sabin jumping to wwe, but tna told sabin if you sign another contract with us, we’ll give you a good push and make you the Tna champ for a while . So sabin agreed and decided to stay for another 2 years . Why this guy the tna champ is just stupid ,

    • DEX

      Everybody in that company would be better off in WWE. TNA promises a TNA world title to pretty much 80% of their roster it seems, but that title is irrelevant in the game anyway. I’d like to see Bobby Roode, Austin Aries, James Storm, Gunner, Sabin, Kenny King, and Magnus in WWE. And as for TNA’s knockouts.. I’d like to see every one of them in WWE! That’s right… all six of them assuming Tessmacher is still there… all in WWE!

        Hey “DEX” Stop using my gimmick you Naughty Naughty Man (i cant curs. Damn you SEScoops now im PG)

    • Thomas Wing

      Where did you get this info? The whole “if you sign we will make you champion” deal is ludicrous. He is champion because he has worked hard and he deserves it.

    sabin- awesome wrestler with no personality
