Facts Hurt, Don’t They Eric?

Bob Bamber

A few more examples of TNA bookers treating their audience like idiots this week:

− Raven and Tommy Dreamer were nice and friendly – weren’t they at each others
throats two weeks ago?

− Weren’t most of the EV2.0 guys under contract already?

− Why did Tommy Dreamer say that they would’ve attacked Fortune there and then but
for Dixie Carter’s instructions. Then at the end of the show come out and attack AJ?
All the makings of a face group here!

− Did they take anything away from “The Whole F’n Show?”. If, as Hogan and
Dreamer said, the showed “raised the bar” (which, judging by the viewing
figures – it didn’t), then why did have all their matches last under 7 minutes?

− I said I’d ignore it earlier, but I’ll bring it back now. What happened to Kurt Angle’s
rise through the top 10. This was the only angle in TNA that made any sense (even
with the retirement stipulation). And TNA threw that aside for a crappy tournament?
Surely drop the belt to Abyss last week, then let Angle rush his way through 1-5 in the
ranking over the next six weeks, so that the angle can culminate at Bound for Glory.

− Matt Morgan is being billed as the “Diesel” of Fortune – yet he lost to The Pope…

− Why is Tommy Dreamer wearing MMA style gear?

− Matt Morgan grabbed the rope during the match with The Pope. Yet the
ref still counted. And to top this all, Taz points this out on commentary!

Being in the business for 20 years does not automatically mean you’re a great a booker.

But in Bischoff’s case, it’s the only thing he can cling to.

As ever, I’ll happily listen to feedback. You can email me on bobbamber@hotmail.co.uk,
or you can get me on twitter on http://www.twitter.com/bobbybamber. And if anyone wants
to point this in the direction of Eric Bischoff’s twitter page, I’d love to hear his response.
