Hopefully we can find one for you. The Stormes/Roode match - which should have been the lead up to the main event, in my opinion - was one match every wrestling fan should see.

Love how AA is playing heel tactics, yet Jeff keeps getting booed.

With the back and forth chants I feel like I'm watching a John Cena match.

Very good main event, terrible result with Hardy coming out on top.

Crowd was hot all night. Great show. Also really liked how TNA used the time.

I hear they want to keep him happy so he stays with the company. Not sure how much truth there is to it.

I don't think he's the leader, but he was the only member revealed. That's just my opinion, though.

Austin Aries is the best worker in the business, bar none. What a match he had with Hardy last night. Too bad he had to drop the belt, but it certainly didn't make him look weak and I expect another title run soon.

As for Roode and Storm, that's how you end a feud. It was a brawl, there was blood and they pounded the crap out of each other. I'm willing to bet that when they got to the back, everyone there gave them a standing ovation. Hopefully TNA will do them right and start getting them back into the title hunt.

I like where the Joey Ryan/Matt Morgan thing is going. I think it could make for interesting and I'm wondering if more would be joining this group (I think Doug Williams would be an excellent third).

Was kind of let down about Devon being in Aces & 8's. Hopefully it doesn't become an nWo thing where all of a sudden, everyone and anyone is joining. I think the angle might have lost some momentum, but it shouldn't be too hard to build up steam again.

All in all, it was a great pay per view. The booking team definitely deserves a thumbs up for how they've been booking things and the wrestlers were definitely on fire last night. The PPV had a real big fight feel to it and you could tell that everyone wanted to put on a good show.

That is exactly what is going on. His contract expires in February 2013 and the word is they are doing everything they can to keep their by far and away no. 1 merchandise seller.

That PPV was awesome, I'm not thrilled with A Double no longer being champ either, but there's nothing wrong with the decision to do it, I'm just an Aries mark and would rather him be the champ. They put on a good clean match that wasn't overbooked, the results aren't up to me.

They worked everyone with Devon being revealed as part of Aces and 8s, all of the people who were saying omg can't believe they let Devon just leave when he is TV champ what a bush league company blah blah blah. As long as he isn't the leader, because that would suck. But the Impact crowd loved Devon and nobody expected it so it works out well to have him as part of it.

Storm and Roode's match was crazy, some Harris vs Storm deathmatch level ****.

Tara and Jesse thing was stupid, Tara is great she doesn't need this stupid little bit to help her.

If you aren't satisfied with that PPV then just don't bother watching because this is not for you and you will never be happy with it. Was it perfect? no, but a good PPV regardless.

Really?

Better than WWE, that's for sure.

Hardy is their top face, of course he was going to go over (and this is coming from an Aries mark).

Some people will just never be receptive to TNA because it's not WWE...despite WWE being crap these days. I'll take Hardy as champ over Ryback.

It was a good PPV. Great wrestling, as usual. Kind of disappointing storylines, as usual.

Hardy as the champ is laughable at best. So many other, better wrestlers could be in that spot.

Hardy is the top face in the company, he sells the most merchandise in the company, he is the biggest draw of all the active wrestlers in the company. It's pretty simple to figure out why you put the belt on a guy like that. Just like why you put the belt on the Cena's and Punk's of the world.

I'm not happy that Hardy won because I love Aries, but it's crazy to try to suggest there is anything wrong with putting the belt on him. There simply is not an argument to be made against him unless you want to resort to pulling up his history, it's "laughable at best" that you seem to think putting the belt on the most popular guy in the company is laughable.

Devon isn't the leader, and what the hell are you talking about? Storm had the belt, lost it to Roode who had the longest run in company history, he then lost the belt to Aries, now it goes on to the biggest face in the company in Hardy and suddenly "nothing has changed" lmao. So typical that despite the clear evidence to the contrary, the moment the belt goes on a "WWE guy" we hear the same boring rhetoric, it's ridiculous really.

I just plain don't like Jeff Hardy. It doesn't matter if he's a face or heel, I've never liked him or his brother. Sure, he can take some huge bumps, but he's not that great of wrestler.

That being said, I'd rather have Hardy with the belt than going back to the days of guys like Jeff Jarrett being champ ad nauseum.

and I don't like Hardy either, and I love Aries, but that doesn't mean the decision to put the belt on him is "laughable at best" as you so eloquently put it, it just means that a guy you don't like has the belt. Being "that great of a wrestler" doesn't mean **** if you are the guy who is pushing the most merchandise. He isn't great in the ring but he isn't bad, compared to someone like Ryback he looks like ****ing Malenko lol.

Some need to appreciate the difference, just because a decision is something you don't like doesn't mean it's a bad decision. The decision makes complete sense from all of the actually important perspectives, he's the biggest draw they have, he's the biggest face in the company, he's the biggest merchandise mover in the company, if the dirtsheet report (I put very little stock into them) has any truth to it then it may help him stay with the company, these are things that actually matter. Soon Cena will have the belt again, and I'll hate it, because I hate Cena and I love Punk, but it won't mean that putting the belt on him will be a bad decision or laughable, it will just mean the mark in me is angry. Too many think booking decisions are bad because it isn't the guy they want getting something.

I agree with that sentiment. As much as I dislike Jeff Hardy, him as the champion is good for business. Just like John Cena, he doesn't need to be the best wrestler in the company. If he can work matches with top stars and put on good to great matches, sell merchandise the way he does and remain over with most of the crowd, he'll get his chances at the title as well as title runs every now and then.
