Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction 11-3-2011

Opening Segment:S

World Champion James Storm comes out and talks about being a fighting champion. He talks about his parnet Bobby Roode, and how he got screwed over. He said he will give him his title shot tonight and blow the roof off the place.

What I Liked:

Establishing the main event of the night right off the bat is the absolute right way to start the night off. They usually waste precious time with something else, such as Bischoff or Hogan. They really need to focus on the World Championship and making it the big story of the show.

What I Disliked:

It feels rushed and too early to have Storm vs. Roode. They could easily bring this to a PPV match and potentially bring the feud to more of a personal battle of one-ups manship. Also, they really need to focus on scripting Storm to sound confident and not the one who is skeptical. It makes a new champion look weaker if he does not have confidence.

Grade: B

Gail Kim and Madison Rayne vs. Brooke Tessmacher and Tara: Knockouts Tag Titles

What I Liked:

Having Gail as a heel quickly gives her heat from the crowd. She has cheated to win a few times, but she is using her talent and bottled up anger in the ring. She is very athletic and technically sound, as you saw this with her and Tara. Kim with Karen Jarrett, who is established as a female heel, gives her even more exposure and hatred.

What I Disliked:

The tag titles for the Knockouts. Unnecessary titles and have ZERO meaning to them. Gail Kim should be focusing on Mickie James and a feud with her and potentially winning the Knockouts Championship. I feel it is way too soon to give her a championship. Make her earn it, not get it just because she left WWE and came to TNA.

Grade: C-
