Impact Wrestling Results & Report 07-21-11 – A Message From Madison Rayne

Madison Rayne doesn't like our TNA columnistWelcome back everyone. Before we get into this week’s recap/rant, I have a little story I’d like to share with you. Last week in my recap of Impact Wrestling, during the knockouts match between Tara and Madison Rayne, I made several comments about Rayne discussing my overall distaste for her. It was nothing horribly offensive or vulgar, yet it apparently hit a nerve with Miss Rayne herself. Apparently, she reads my columns on, and sent me a response to last week’s column on Twitter. Here is that comment verbatim from Madison Rayne (

@XDustinEFLX You sir, are a d*ckhead. Get a real job. =) that’s all!

Well, Jokes on Rayne: I don’t get paid for this and have a real job. A real suck job, mind you, but a real job nonetheless. Anyway, I did respond to Rayne in kind on Twitter. I won’t repeat that response here; however, I will say that fellow wrestling writer and friend Malcolm Spinedi ( told me I should have told her that she should work for a real wrestling federation first. Good line. Anyway, I wasn’t going to pick on Rayne anymore than normal until I received this feedback (my first piece of feedback/criticism/hatred from a TV wrestling personality, BTW). Now that I know I make Madison Rayne mad, I will have to make sure to go out of my way to pick on her every week. Sorry, but that’s the rule. It’s science.

Now, onto this week’s broadcast. We start the show with the brand new TNA Wrestling World Champion, Sting. Nothing against Sting, but this is the reason why no one takes Impact Wrestling seriously. Every time they put the belt on someone new or newer to the main event scene, it doesn’t take long before the belt goes right back to Sting. Sting’s in the ring cutting a stupid promo in the Joker voice that he’s really terrible at. Sting says there won’t be an easy or hard way, and we’re doing things Stings’ way instead.

This promo is total nonsense, BTW. He says he wants to do an interview with Hogan and Bischoff. Instead, someone in a clown mask (Kurt Angle) comes down the ring. He rips the mask off and, surprise, it’s Kurt Angle. Kurt reminds Sting that he was the one who helped Sting out last week. Kurt says that, while Sting is trying to save the company for Dixie Carter, he’s run into a speed bump shaped like Kurt Angle. Angle says they will meet at “Hardcore Justice”, and that he and Sting are legends in wrestling, and only one can walk out the better man. Sting continues his Joker crap before Bully Ray and Mr. Anderson walk out. Huhboy, this is going to be a long night.

[adinserter block=”2″]Blubber Ray tells us that Angle and Sting will have to learn to work together, because it’s them vs. Ray and Anderson. Ray says he didn’t like Kurt hitting him in the ab with a baseball bat, and that he will hit Kurt with a kitchen sink. Anderson makes fun of Sting’s face and refers to Kurt as Sting’s “butt buddy”. I hope GLAAD is watching this. Anderson says before Sting worries about anyone else including Dixie, he has to deal with Anderson first. He then calls Sting “beyotch”. How old is Anderson again?

MATCH 1-BFG Series Match: Scott Steiner vs. Rob Van Dam
Steiner’s chest looks a deflated balloon. BTW-steroids only work if you still continue to work out each muscle group in the gym. Rob Van Dam‘s horrible music hits, and he’s got some bandages over his right eye. Steiner attacks RVD before the bell. Steiner gets some shots in and a back elbow. Man, that tattoo sucks. Overhead belly-to-belly suplex by Steiner gets 2. Steiner puts RVD in the tree of woe and steps on his throat. Not only does Steiner have no chest, but he’s got horrible distended belly going on. Steiner puts RVD in a version of the standing surfboard. RVD gets out, but gets thrown in the corner followed by some shots. RVD floats over a corner whip and hits a jumping side kick. Punches by RVD followed by a kick to the face. Leaping side kick from the top sends Steiner to the outside. RVD guts Steiner on the guardrail, and hits a spinning legdrop from the ring apron. Back in the ring and Steiner calls for time out, but no go. Corner whip by RVD, but Steiner counters with the boot and the spinning belly-to-belly for 2. Corner whip by Steiner, but RVD responds with a spinning heel kick and Rolling Thunder for 2. Steiner gets up and crotches RVD on top rope and hits a suspended reverse STO. Not a bad move, actually. RVD breaks the fall by getting his foot on the bottom rope. Steiner’s looking for a clothesline and hits it, followed by the posing elbow drop and push-ups. Steiner begins arguing with the ref for no reason, which allows RVD to get the schoolboy for the 3.

WINNER: Rob Van Dam, which gets him 7 points, putting him in 4th place. I think it’s time for Steiner to hang it up, as most of his offense in this match was punches and kicks.

We see TNA Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne walking to the ring. Hmm? Really? Oh. I’m being told in my invisible earpiece that the champion is actually Mickie James, and that she’s the one walking to the ring. Huh! Guess you learn something new every day.

Mickie James comes out. Seriously, who told her she could sing? She asks Velvet Sky to come to the ring. She does. Riveting television right here. Mickie James is trying to pull off some pseudo-50’s look tonight. It’s not working. James tells Velvet that she’s seen everyone take all of their frustrations out on Velvet for months. James proceeds with the pointless butt-kissing and tells Velvet she’s proud to give Velvet her first one-one-one title match tonight. They hug, and Mickie continues the pandering and says they will tear the roof off the Impact Zone. Somehow, I doubt it. Mickie James says she’s walking into the match as champion and will walk out as well. This leads to Winter’s awful music playing. Her and her walking stick she calls

Angelina Love come to ringside. Angelina tells Mickie and Velvet they just need to go get a hotel room together. Angelina says that she completely understands everything Winter’s done to her, and that the rest of the knockouts all share total disrespect for her because she’s the 5-time champion. She says she’s never been given her dues (despite, you know, the five title reigns), and that none of the other knockouts on her level. She says that it doesn’t matter who wins tonight, because the belts her. Winter, with all of the acting ability of a rock, proceeds to rant about approximately nothing, and then says she’s going to win the title, and it will belong to her and Angelina. Velvet and Mickie James then hold hands for some reason.

Backstage, Rosita and Sarita attack Tara and Miss Tessmacher. I guess they have a match tonight or something.
BTW-the remakes for “Conan” and “Fright Night” look offensively terrible.

Back from commercials, and the brawl between the non-Mexican Mexicans and Tara and Tessmacher is continuing. Now, Madison Rayne jumps into the picture and does nothing but scream. At least she’s going with her strong suit here.

Now we get comments from the 4 participants in tonight’s ladder match. Joe says there’s no reason he should have zero points tonight. Except for the fact that, you know, he hasn’t won any matches. Matt Morgan says he’s going to get 10 points tonight, and begins nonsensically raising his voice in the middle of the promo. Gunner rambles on about A.J. Styles and then says he’ll be champion. A.J. also says he’s going to win, but then Christopher Daniels walks into frame and proceeds to talk just quietly enough so the camera can’t pick up the audio. Styles slams the door in the cameraman’s face.

Mike Tenay tells us to watch this “very special video”. It’s a very dark video of Tara, Tessy, Sarita and Rosita fighting in a parking lot. Apparently, Sarita had her jaw and orbital bones broken and needs to wear a protective mask now.

MATCH 2-Knockouts Tag Team Championship: Tara and Miss Tessmacher vs. Knockouts Tag Team Champions Rosita and Sarita
Tara and Tessy wait for the champs off at the top of the ramp. Sarita is wearing a mask that looks exactly like Abyss’. The bell finally rings after some brawling, and now they’re all brawling in the ring. The champs kick Tara out, but get double-clotheslined by Tessy. Sarita’s looking chunky tonight. Earl Hebner finally gets Sarita out of the ring, so Tessy and Rosita are legal. Sarita tags in, and Taz refers to the champs as “hot little jackals”. Never found jackals to be hot. The champs tag in and out, doing nothing more than slaps for about a minute. Tessy kicks Rosita in the gut, but gets nothing. Tessy reverses out of a corner whip and hits a clothesline. She tries to tag in not-Victoria, but Sarita kicks Tara back out. Rosita tags Sarita back in. They hit Tessy with a very sloppy double-flapjack and Sarita gets 2. Tara gets in the ring and drags Tessy to their corner. She tags in and hits some forearms. Tara goes for the Widow’s Peak on Sarita, but Madison Rayne comes in and headbutts Tara in the stomach behind the ref’s back, allowing Sarita to get 2. Tessy gets a tornado bulldog on Sarita while Tara simultaneously hits the Spider’s Web on Rosita. Tara hits Sarita with a tree slam while Tessy botches a roll-up on Rosita, and Tara gets the 3.

WINNERS AND NEW CHAMPIONS: Tara and Miss Tessmacher. This might matter if the Knockouts tag titles meant a single damn thing. Meanwhile, was there any point at all in Madison Rayne’s involvement in this match? She didn’t do a single thing worthwhile. Even after headbutting Tara, she disappeared from the equation. Don’t get me wrong-the less of her on my TV, the better (especially with HD); but if that’s all she’s going to do, why cart her out in the first place?

Just in case we weren’t sure, the contract for this next match has the amount of points it is worth in giant numbers and letters written on it.

MATCH 3-Four-way ladder match for 10 BFG Series points: A.J. Styles vs. Samoa Joe vs. Matt Morgan vs. Gunner
Joe should probably drop the “Samoan Submission Machine” nickname. When was the last time a submission hold was successful in helping him win a match? You know, even as generic as all of TNA entrance “videos” are, Gunner’s has to be THE most generic. Pretty fitting, I guess. Joe and Morgan brawl in the ring while Styles and Gunner are brawling on the outside. Gunner gets a ladder on the ring apron and then hotshots Styles into it. Joe then dropkicks it into Gunner’s face. Morgan and Joe fight over the ladder, then hit Gunner with it. Morgan punches Joe, then slides the ladder into the ring. A.J. gets in the ring. Morgan attempts a chokeslam, but Styles backflips out of it and kicks Morgan a few times. Gunner channels Tully Blanchard with a slingshot suplex on Styles, then hits Joe and Morgan with a ladder. Styles throws Gunner back out. Morgan tries to throw Styles into the ladder. Styles runs up and jumps off into a crossbody, but Morgan catches him with a fall-away slam. Joe hits Morgan with a running senton. Gunner’s back in and tries an Irish whip on Joe, but Joe keeps running and jumps onto Morgan on the outside. Styles punchs Gunner off the ladder. Joe knocks off Styles, but eats a Pele. Joe hits a corner uranage on Styles, but takes a running knee from Top Gun himself. Morgan hits the Carbon Footprint on Top Gun, and now Morgan’s climbing the ladder. He grabs the contract, and it’s over.

WINNER: Matt Morgan. Morgan gets 10 points and climbs to 2nd place in the series. This match was okay but was far too rushed to be such an overbooked mess. Ladder matches should really have a minimum of 15 minutes. I think this one last less than 10.

Eric Young is in front of a mini-mart, talking about how he’s going to beat up a bunch of random celebrities. He walks in and says that he sees his first opponent, Cee-Lo Green. It’s actually D-Lo Brown that’s in the min-mart. D-Lo, looking fatter than holy hell, tells Eric this isn’t a road he wants to go down, and that he’s going back to work. Young rolls him up as he walks away and counts his own pin. D-Lo chases him out of the mini-mart and then does his old stupid headshake.

MATCH 4-X-Division Championship: Alex Shelley vs. X-Division Champion Brian Kendrick
Kendrick misses a dropkick, and Shelley gets a weird roll-up for 2. Shelley gets a unique small package for another 2. Shelley and Kendrick trade wastelocks, and Shelley gets yet another unique roll-up for 2. Shelley gets a knee and a chop, reverses a chop into an armdrag, but runs right into a single-leg dropkick. Kendrick goes for Sliced Bread #2, but Shelley kicks him away. Shelley tries the same move, but Kendrick escapes. Shelley gets a bow and arrow lock on Kendrick, but Kendrick floats out for a 1-count. Shelley misses a baseball slide to the outside. Kendrick charges but eats a kick. Shelley with a top rope crossbody for 2. He tries to get the pin two more times, but no luck. Shelley goes back up, but Kendrick connects with a dropkick off the dive. Shelley gets some forearms in, but Kendrick responds with one of his own, followed by a big boot and another single-leg dropkick that sends Shelley outside. Kendrick connects with the suicide dive. Kendrick tries a splash from up top back in the ring, but Shelley gets his knees up. Both guys on the apron now, and Shelley hits Sliced Bread #2 on the ring apron. Pretty damn cool move, if you ask me. Shelley throws him back in, but Austin Aries appears out of nowhere and clocks Shelley with the title belt. Kendrick crawls over and gets the 3.

WINNER AND STILL CHAMPION: Brian Kendrick. Not a bad match, but far from the best I’ve seen out of these two. Meanwhile, Aries is still on the outside, doing a creepy pose on the floor.

Backstage, Kendrick is telling the anonymous camera man he didn’t know that Aries was outside during the match. Kendrick then rambles incoherently. That’s apparently the theme for all the promos tonight.

We get another Mexican-America promo. Anarquia is rambling about Sarita getting her face broken. Oh, and that protective face mask she’s wearing? It’s about as protective as Rey Mysterio’s. Now Anarquia is complaining about where their flag is. He says that, when they get pissed off, they kick ass. They must not be pissed off very often. He then says they want Beer Money.

The tag champs now come out. James Storm looks like a complete tool with his painted cowboy hat and “Beer Hunter” shirt. Anarquia proceeds to ramble in fake Spanish. James Storm tells him to shut up and leave the ring, as well as the company. He tells them to find something they’re good at, like cutting grass. Because racism=comedy. Storm threatens to make him eat a cowboy boot. Hopefully with hollandaise sauce. Storm then says everyone has forgotten about them. At least he admits it. He tells us how bad Bobby Roode is in an incoherent way (again, it’s the theme tonight).

James Storm says he’s as American as they come after listing off a bunch of things he is that I hate (except for Johnny Cash). Storm calls Mexican-America’s act BS, and that they will get their title shot at Hardcore Justice. He then says they’re going to wake up the morning after the PPV with their green cards shoved up their asses. Apparently, Storm didn’t get the memo that Hernandez was born in Texas and Anarquia was born in California, thus negating the need for green cards. Again, racism=comedy.

Up next, the horse-faced Knockouts Champion (not Madison Rayne) vs. “Talentless Eye Candy” Velvet Sky

You know, I’m trying to be as objective as I can with this company, but they are making it so very, very difficult.

How can anyone feel sympathy for Dixie Carter in this stupid storyline? The woman signed away her company without reading the contract. It’s her own fault for being so stupid.

MATCH 5-Knockouts Championship: Knockouts Champion Mickie James vs. Velvet Sky
Before Velvet Sky is even out, Winter and her doggy chew toy attack James. Velvet comes in with a bunch of kicks. Mickie is also looking nice and pudgy tonight. Her, Sarita and Samoa Joe must be on the same non-diet. Velvet and James continue to attack Winter and Angelina Love. ODB and Jackie come into the ring from the crowd and attack the faces. Dear lord, ODB appears to have had her breasts enlarged again. Winter and Love stand by and watch this, while Traci Brooks, fresh from the corn field where she works a second job as an implausibly large-breasted scarecrow, runs into the ring to save the faces. The amount of silicone and plastic surgery that’s in the ring is probably more costly than Kurt Angle’s entire contract. Jackie beats up the security guards, as does ODB. The knockouts all continue to brawl pointlessly. ODB throws a skate shoe while her and Jackie continue to beat up security. I’m really at a loss here. Some fake cops then come in to arrest ODB and Jackie. You would think that, for realism’s sake, they would have been ringside about 10-15 minutes ago. Oh, and the title match? It’s completely scrapped for the evening.

Backstage (WRESTLING MATTERS!!!!!), and we see Velvet Sky and Traci Brooks. Traci is sticking up for Velvet, whether she has a contract or not. Velvet calls her baby. And…that’s about it, really.

MATCH 6-Alien Frat Boys (Blubber Ray and Special Agent Jim Rave) vs. Kurt Angle and World Champion Heath Ledger’s Corpse
Anderson starts his microphone schtick, but Blubber tells him to knock it off and not give people what they want. Anderson ignores him and continues to do it. You know, I really don’t want to know the people who want Anderson to do his microphone bit. It’s annoying and pointless. It’s not clever, and hasn’t been for about 6 years.

[adinserter block=”1″]”The Insane Icon” comes out, and now I’m really irritated. Sting’s whole bit, including that atrocious nickname just makes me physically ill. Blubber and Sting start off. Anderson tags in, and chokes Sting. Anderson with a back elbow and a 2-count. Anderson tags in Ray, who does his jumping punch, followed by a bodyslam and a 2. Ray with another 2 off an elbow. Ray now has Sting in a neck vice and tags Anderson back in. Anderson starts attacking Sting’s leg and gets another 2. Ray is back in and hits a jumping axe handle and a bodyslam. Ray goes for the middle rope senton that he always does yet Tenay says is rare for Ray, but misses. Angle tags in and hits the German suplexes made famous by that guy who never existed. Ray with a chop block on Angle, but Sting throws him out. Stinger Splash on Anderson, who then takes the Angle Slam for 3.

WINNERS: Kurt Angle and Sting. Yet another short, overbooked mess this evening. Complimented the nonsense promo theme well. The faces shake each other’s hand. Angle pulls Sting in, and Sting says, “Have I gone too far, or not far enough?” Um…yeah.

End of show.

You know, I would love nothing more than to support TNA and thus support mainstream wrestling in the U.S. on a whole, but with shows like tonight’s episode, it’s damn near impossible. Even the X-Division title match, which should have been impossible to screw up, was lousy. You have two of your best talents face each other, and instead of giving them a sold 10 minutes or so, you give them less than 5 minutes and tell the champion to use a lot of generic offense. Sigh.

  1. Even though I don't always agree, you can't dismiss this review as unentertaining. It's funny how you point the obvious flaws in TNA's programming. Even funnier to see so many posters take it a little 'too' serious.

  2. Lest we forget, I think the writer's immediate response to Rayne's completely justified TWITTER comment was something along the lines of "shut your face you stupid c**t." Doesn't anyone remember seeing that? Anyone? This writer (NOT the site) is a publicity hound, as you can clearly see from his constant usage of the event.

    Some may say any publicity is good publicity, but those people don't seem to understand "journalism".

    Bring back Panther Joe!!!

  3. Yeah, despite the fact he sounds like a total douche and as a result, people won't take him seriously. If you need a less bias review of Impact, I would be happy to do one.

  4. Dustin Nichols (July 15): "This leads to an atrocious promo from an atrocious human being in Rayne. (…) Rayne is asking Tara to lay down. I didn’t know they were still doing the pseudo-lesbian gimmick. (…) Tara’s looking a little chunky tonight. (…) Madison needs some dental surgery. (…) WINNER: The chick who was suspected of insurance fraud."

    Dustin Nichols (July 21): "It was nothing horribly offensive or vulgar"

    • What an obnoxious answer. Does Dustin need to be a chef to judge bad cooking? Does Dustin need to be a major league baseball player to judge a crappy closer? Does Dustin need to be an economist to comment on the economy? So in your opinion if a writer loved Impact and was never a wrestler, that makes his opinion irrelevant?

      Believe me, you don't need to be a wrestler to judge a bad match. And at the end of the day, it's his opinion anyway.

      Instead of everyone coming on here and attacking the writer with insults, why don't you tell him why he is wrong? Tell him what is great about Impact? Tell him what he got wrong? Have a spirited debate as opposed to name calling.

      • Tell Dustin that. But I will say what was great about, the ladder match, Traci returning, and not having to listen/read Dustin complain about everything.

  5. Ur calling Mickie James and Sarita fat? Even though she's probly in better shape than you, just like Velvet and Madison are more talented than you. And also shut up Eric Gargiulo!

  6. If you wish for your site to be taken seriously, I would recommend avoiding poor writers with personality issues.

    This is less an event review, and more the ramblings of a teenage girl upset that someone has criticized her choice of prom dress.

  7. Listen, as the editor and owner of this blog I don't feel the need to defend Dustin . He is obviously writing satire/entertainment. Here is the deal. I needed an Impact reviewer for the site a few weeks and he was the only one that contacted me. I was hoping to get a balanced reviewer who was a fan and could watch with a critical eye, but Dustin was the only one interested, and his more cynical view got the gig. I would LOVE to post TNA blogs written by TNA fans. If anyone here that is so offended at what Dustin wrote would like to write their own Impact reviews to balance Dustin's, please contact me.

    The site in general offers a fair and balanced look at TNA. There are other bloggers on here like myself and Justin Henry that write plenty of objective TNA blogs. As a matter of a fact, Joe Leininger recently named Madison Rayne the number one hottie in wrestling on this site –….

    So again, if any TNA fans here are offended and would like to offer a more pro-TNA approach to blogging, I am always looking for new writers. But before you indict the entire blog for one blogger's satirical slant on TNA, check out the other TNA blogs on here and you will see plenty of praise for your favorite company and even Madison Rayne.

    • Thank you, Eric. Apparently, they never read the first part of my first recap where I said I was a very cynical person. They also apparently don't read the parts where I say I'd like to be more objective to TNA, but it's very difficult. I've gotten a lot of support from you, Justin, Jeff Peck, Brett, Malcolm Not In The Middle, etc., and I graciously thank all of you for not only supporting my writing which allows me to continue to do so, but backing me up when push comes to shove.

        • Yup. Seems to be the case where alot of Madison's fans are catching wind of the story through he fan sites, being linked to here, and leaving a bad review without seeing any past work. It's pretty ignorant on their part. Just know the facts.

          • That's it, Brett. They're not looking at any of my other work, whether it's TNA or Smackdown! If they did, they'd see that I do give TNA compliments when they are deserved (just happens to be rare), and if they read this week's SD! recap, they'd see that I actually gave the show a lot of praise. Of course, they'd try to peg me as a WWE guy at that point. While I do like WWE better, I like any wrestling show that provides good, solid entertainment throughout the show. TNA has not had an episode like that in years. Until they do, I will criticize/compliment when I see fit. That is my job here.

        • No, they don't. Apparently, they missed me complimenting the X-Division matches the last few weeks, with my main criticism being that they're too short (which most fans seem to agree with).

  8. If you don't like TNA why bother watching it or giving details on it? Seriously all I see is you taking jabs at everyone, do us a favor and just stop watching or keep your BS comments out of your reviews, at least on Rajah they don't do the stupid insults.

    • Here's an idea, Jeremy. Don't read it. You should be happy that he's even contributing to their awful rating every week and writing about it in the first place. He deserves to be commended for sitting through that circus of a show. He can watch whatever he wants. You can read whatever you want. Welcome to America. Get the f*ck over it.

      • Yeah he was hired to REPORT on it, not toss out stupid insults, people on Rajah report on it, maybe toss in "It was a dud" or something like they, they don't go out of their way to toss insults at people who are doing their jobs, I have a few insults I could pass his way but it is not CONSTRUCTIVE, which neither are his jabs, like calling Mickie James "Horseface" or any such thing.

  9. I agree with Ashley(Madison)…you obviously ARE a d***head! Ok so you said your part on the review or whatever, she responded to say her part…that should be the end of it! Instead now u wanna drag it on and on! Very childish…why dont you grow up and have some respect…like her or not, she puts her body on the line every time she steps into the ring to entertain morons like you and gives u something to write about so you can play pretend journalist! I have met Ashley, she is a very sweet person…but i think she was right about you, and that goes for everyone agreeing with you and trashing her!

    • The problem here isn't dragging it on. It's that, as a celebrity, she puts herself our there every week for people to review her week. If she doesn't like when people are critical of her, there's better ways to go about it instead of calling people "dickheads". Myself and the near 500 people who have retweeted this story are also glad to be "dickheads". As far as you and the 3 other people who are actually sticking up for her immature responses, I encourage you to get some manners and learn how to respect people with differing opinions in a constructive manner.

      • These people think that, if they attack me, I'll throw a fit like she did. I have a thick skin, so this really doesn't bother me. Other than that, it's good publicity and gets my name out there as a wrestling writer. And, like I said on Twitter, whether people love this column or hate it, the fact is they're talking about it, and that's what matters most. Of course, I don't have to tell you that. You and everyone at Wrestlechat have been very supportive, and I appreciate that.

  10. I agree with you in that she needs to stop taking herself so seriously but i dont agree with your friends joke, the only reason raw has been as good as its been lately is the cm punk angle, and now that its over(until he comes back) im done watching raw, and also atleast the women wrestlers have better matches than that crap of a divas division in wwe

    • I'm not going to dispute you on the divas division at all. Actually, I'm a big fan of women's wrestling, which makes me sad to see what it's become in both WWE and TNA. TNA used to have one of the top womens divisions in the world before they fired all of their most talented workers, kept the few remaining talents pinned down, and then pushed the ones without talent instead. Again, the WWE is no better about this.

      • me too, those matches with gail kim and awesome kong were some if not the best womens wresting i have ever see, it made me respect the womens division because they showed how great womens wrestling could be if they didnt hire barbie doll cut outs(though im not saying these women arent good looking, i find gail kim very attractive)

  11. "Now that I know I make Madison Rayne mad, I will have to make sure to go out of my way to pick on her every week."

    That would be why she called you a d#*khead. Are you ten years old you idiot?

  12. "Now that I know I make Madison Rayne mad, I will have to make sure to go out of my way to pick on her every week."

    Yep. That would be why she called you a dickhead. Are you 10 years old you idiot?

  13. It seems as if a lot of TNA's negativity, especially on this site, is derived from an unfair comparison to the WWE, which it could never hold a candle to, and obviously isn't trying to, either.

    Because TNA doesn't have the world stage like the other company, it has to squeeze it's moneymakers (Sting, Hogan, etc) in with the younger, more exciting guys, with little wiggle room for transition. Also, the two hour show/week programming lends itself to head-shaking booking angles and at times, confusing writing.

    On the same token, you only have to digest two hours worth of Impact programming. With the WWE bridging their stories across TWO two hour shows and asinine updates, it almost feels like a chore to view it. Have people watched Smackdown lately? As far as quality this summer, Impact has surpassed SD in spades.

    So everyone reading these reviews, do what you're doing right now. Comment on it, give the site your take with a well thought out qualification, and start a conversation.

  14. Madison is extremely beautiful. Unfortunately, she's also talentless and can't work a match if her life depended on it. Maybe she should get some thicker skin and realize that ANYONE on any type of screen aren't always going to have their work loved by everyone. It's a part of life and a part of being a celebrity. We're all different and have different tastes.

    Oh, and Abe….please do us a favor and add an avatar. Right now, all I'm seeing is the default "worthless face".

    • I love how most of these critics of mine have no picture and anonymous names, yet I'm the one afraid to show my face (despite it being seen all over my Facebook profile and Twitter avatar).

  15. This isn't a "recap", this is like something out of a very biased Fox News report. If you're doing this for free then quit this while you're at it and take some writing classes instead. I'm glad that as talented and beautiful as Madison is, she was willing to spare a few seconds of attention for a pathetic "writer" like you.

    Oh, and for those of you reading this because other sites directed you here, this has his facebook profile pic set to the tweet. Too afraid to show his worthless face.

    • I'm glad she did, too. It gave me more publicity and more material to work with. As for my picture, all you have to do is look at the avatar on my Twitter account, as I'm in the picture, and on Facebook, just go to my account. I have plenty of pictures of myself posted there.

  16. Dude you suck. You think you know it all and you don't have any taste. I agree with Madison Rayne. You are a d*ckhead. Better yet, you are a piece of trash who is a not talent hack. Have a nice day c&*ksucker.

    • Such Class! If you're going to get so personal and sling around names like your talentless idol Madison Rayne did, at least take the time to show your name. "Better then you"? At least use proper grammer. It's "Better Than You".

    • Hey Better then,

      If you want to come on here and throw around personal insults that is fine. I approved them. But when people respond to your insults, please don't "report" those comments to me as harassment. If you are going to come on here and start calling people names, you better be able to handle the feedback. Dustin could have reported you for "harassment" but didn't. If you think I am going to delete their responses after you come on here calling Dustin those beautiful names, you are a bigger idiot than I thought. Don't waste my time.

  17. If you complain about EVERY SINGLE MATCH on Impact, why do you even watch it if all you're going to do is bitch about it?

    • I don't know…maybe because it's a f$#king REVIEW?!?!?! His job for this site is to write Impact reviews. They're actually pretty objective if you took the time to go back and read some of them. But, seeings as you couldn't take the 2 seconds to even make an actual name so that you could troll the site, I'm gonna guess that you didn't take the time to do that. Glad you stopped by to judge him based on 1 review since, you know, an album with 1 bad song or a movie with 1 bad scene sucks.

  18. Just wanna say, I came off your blog via that posted about Rein responding to you. After skimming though your opinion of last weeks show. I just wanna say, you sir, are just like so many other IWC retards out there who think they know more about wrestling than people who are actually in the business. Not that I believe that EVERYTHING that TNA/IW does is freakin GOLD… but surely I found the show to be entertaining and even though Sting's Joker gimmick can be over the top and cheesy at times, its still fresh and better than anything Sting has done since '05 really. Sting looks like he has energy and life again, and yeah, yeah, the main event was short. But what I saw was an extremely well booked main event that made your two world title competitors look like total beasts that even Immortal cant hold a candle to. You obviously lost the point of everything that was trying to come across. because you were more concerned with the exact amount of time every match had. I'll never understand why so many of you Smarks write these reviews trashing TNA, then you later say "I really wana like TNA I really do, but there just stupid" or some stupid BS like that. If you dont find TNA entertaining then guess what, maybe its not for you. I dont like Jay Leno so guess what? I dont watch it, cuz its just not for me. Pfffft…. f*#king idiots

    • So, because you found the show to be "entertaining", the writer of this BLOG (I highlight that because it's not like we're the freakin' Wall Street Journal…these are commentaries from each individual's point-of-view) he's an "IWC retard…who thinks he knows more about wrestling than people who are actually in the business"???

      Tell me, Paul; What is it like "in the business", since you speak as if you're behind-the-scenes?

      Also, you're usage of the term "smark" is both ridiculous and elementary. Let me ask you a question – have you ever seen a movie, listened to a song, or ate a meal that you didn't like? If you didn't like it, did you proclaim it as the greatest thing in the world? Did you speak highly of it as if nothing else is better than it? Well, ya see, that's what a review is. You watch a show, movie, or eat a meal, and then you give your personal view of it. That's what Dustin is doing here. It's really not that difficult of a concept to grasp.

      So, lay off of the author of this story simply because he disagrees with you or doesn't like the product. There's no reason to get personal with anyone simply because there's a difference of opinion. You clearly loved the show and the author of this piece did not. Leave it at that.

      Oh…and her last name is "Rayne".

  19. Seriously Impact has been making small improvements each week, I thought the ladder match was great, Compared to WWE, the quality of wrestling is ten times better, the majority of the Knockouts can really wrestle and have matches that last more than 2 seconds. I've been super critical of TNA since they got cancer (Hogan and his butt buddy) but with the exception of the creative incompetence the show has been getting better. This past week I only used the FF on my dvr during one match, compared to Smackdown where I watch the whole thing in double or triple time as to not have to stick sharp objects in my eyes for sitting through 2 hours of that show.

  20. Forgot to mention this in the last one (if the last one got approved) maybe you could try acting like a real journalist? Maybe take a few notes from Wade Keller or James Caldwell, Dave Meltzer, etc.

    • I'm actually not so insulting on the Smackdown! recaps. As for being a "real journalist", that's not my job here. My job is to recap the shows. If Eric needs me for real journalism, he knows I'm more than capable of doing just that.

      • While it does seem like Dustin sometimes doesn't give Impact a fair shake, let's not forget…it's pro bono work about guys acting out a contentious fight in underwear.

        And speaking of Meltzer, where the heck does that guy get all his leaks/info? Most of the juicy reports come back to him, so either he just wildly guesses until he gets a few right or he's being paid to leak info to get a story hyped. Anyone know the 411 on this guy?

  21. I forget, which one are you? The only one who I really know is Eric. Wait, I remember now! You're the guy who insults EVERYTHING! Noooooow I remember! You're also the guy I try not to read, because it's obvious he's insulting just for the sake of insulting! And believe me, TNA is an easy target but you take it too far.

  22. Sorry but if Madison weren't wrestling, she would be doing something else with her body to make money, mild to wild. These Divas think rather highly of themselves when in reality there are 100 ready to take their place at the drop of a hat. You think you are special, here's a newsflash: no one will care in five years as you will be old news.

    Hey Madison, stop taking yourself so seriously.

  23. Caught the ladder match, and man, that was pretty anticlimactic. I appreciate where they are going with Samoa Joe's 0-fer, because the most ironic thing about the BFG series is that no, it doesn't matter. But Morgan needed a more exciting finish than looking around like a deer after his carbon footprint and stumbling up the ladder unopposed.

    And Dustin, be nicer to Madison! You won't get any discounts on all the "worn" gear she fences on eBay.

  24. TNA once had promise .. I actually thought, having a "promoter" like Hogan in the fold, he could take TNA up against WWE .. boy was I mistaken. This is WCW 2 .. I always want to root for the underdog, like I had when WCW was kicking WWF's rear in ratings, but since ROH isn't on my list of cable channels, I don't know what to do now .. considering TNA is becoming a "wrassl'n" organization rather than a real, old school wrestling promotion

    • I don't get ROH anymore either, now that their deal with HDNet is done. As for WCW 2, let's be fair-it's only WCW 2 when you're comparing it to 1998-2001. Prior to that, WCW was actually a decent promotion overall.
