Instead of making a new thread for every Raw, Smackdown, Impact and PPV, I think we can avoid clogging up the board by confining it to just one big-ass thread.
Today we are privvy to two PPVs. I know which one I'm gonna order and which one I'm gonna need some heavy recommendation to see highlights of after.
Let's talk about the latter first.
TNA presents Turning point where the list of matches is
*Bobby Roode (c) vs. AJ Styles - TNA World Heavyweight Championship
*Austin Aries (c) vs. Kid Kash vs. Jesse Sorensen - X-Division Championship
*Mexican America (Hernandez & Anarquia) (c) & Sarita vs. Ink Inc. (Shannon Moore & Jesse Neal) & Toxxin - TNA Tag Team Championship
*Velvet Sky (c) vs. Gail Kim - TNA Knockouts Championship
*Jeff Hardy vs. Jeff Jarrett
*Eric Young (c) vs. Robbie E - TNA Television championship
*Rob Van Dam vs. Christopher Daniels - No Disqualification Match
*Crimson vs. Matt Morgan
*Mr. Anderson & Abyss vs. Bully Ray & Scott Steiner
Honestly, I haven't watched TNA in months, so I'm completely out of touch. First thing I notice when looking at that list is "Where the Hell is Alex Shelley, Samoa Joe and Brian Kendrick!?".
Oh well, I guess Roode vs Styles can be great (They certainly have it in them), but since it's the main event in a TNA PPV I'm fearing an overbooked mess full of run ins. Aries and Kash should also put on a stellar performance, but I've never seen Jesse Sorenson. And though I'd kill to have seen this match 5 years ago, RVD and especially Daniels can still go. Otherwise I'm pretty meh.
Now, what I'm really looking forward to is this!
Coming straight outta the hallowed ECW arena, Chikara puts on their first iPPV, with a free pre-show to wet your appetites.
First, CHIKARA presents a live and free pre-show on UStream, hosted by Dr. Keith Lipinski! The pre-show will feature live interviews, a call-in number to talk with the stars of the show live, and a special bonus match featuring El Generico vs. Jigsaw! You can find it here, starting at 3:15pm EST:
Then, onto the main card starting at 4:00pm EST, featuring:
*Eddie Kingston (w/ Tommy Dreamer) vs. Mike Quackenbush - to crown the first ever CHIKARA Grand Champion
*The Spectral Envoy (UltraMantis Black & Hallowicked) vs. The BDK (Ares & Tim Donst) - No Disqualification Luchas de Apuestas Tag Team Match; the loser of the fall must adhere to the agreed upon stipulation, with UltraMantis Black or Hallowicked unmasking, Tim Donst shaving his head, or Ares returning the Eye of Tyr to UltraMantis.
*The Colony vs. The Young Bucks - Winner Earns Three Points, Losers Start Over!
*Gregory Iron vs. Icarus - The Final Confrontation!
*Green Ant vs. Tursas - A Grudge For the Ages!
*Colt Cabana vs. Archibald Peck (w/ Veronica & Colt CaBunny) - Rematch from King of Trios Night 2!
*Sara Del Rey vs. Jakob Hammermeier - The Last On The Revenge List!
*Amasis Returns To Speak! The Future of the Osirian Portal Revealed!
The whole card look stacked, personally I'm looking forward to seeing Sara Del Rey beat Herr Hammermeier into a pulp, Colt Cabana to put on a clinic both in comedy and mat wrestling and the fates of the Spectral Envoy vs the BDK.
But most of all it will be the main event which should be a classic. Kingston and Quackenbush have been two of the best things going in the indies for the last few years and this match has hit a fever pitch. Kingston has cut one of the most passionate promos I've ever heard about the importance of this match.
