Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction 3-22

Josh Isenberg

Samoe Joe and Magnus def. Mexican America to Retain the Tag Team Championship:

What I Liked:

The beginning was solid, having Joe continuously punch Hernandez in the corner like a bat out of hell. Aggression and intensity right from the beginning is something rarely seen in TNA. It is more of a meticulous beginning, followed by all out chaos. This was a nice change of pace for both teams. Joe and Magnus are getting better and better each week as a team, mixing their knowledge with chemistry and intensity. They are going to continue to carry the division for the foreseeable future, and I like how they are booking them right now. The heel kick and elbow drop by Joe and Magnus showcased their ability to connect with one another as a tag team.

What I Disliked:

This guy from Repo Games is so asinine. Absolutely terrible way to cross promote. I guess WWE does the same with their shows as well, and it is something that the networks want to do. I just have no idea who he is, do not care, and neither do the wrestlers. You can tell.

Grade: B

James Storm def. Christopher Daniels and Kazarian in a Handicap Match:

What I Liked:

Storm looks extremely good in this match, focusing on his offensive attacks. Yes, he was on the defensive for a while, but Storm was able to work through that. Kaz and Daniels keep the pace fast and furious, while Storm is more of a brawler. When Storm connects with Last Call, he rarely misses. Daniels and Kaz do a great acting job to feel like they should have won, but did not. They were not over selling, but at the same time sold just enough for everyone else to buy into their story in the ring.

What I Disliked:

They needed more time to work. Storm beats these two with a few moves, but Anderson and Styles took much longer and struggled more to defeat them? That is illogical and a lack of consistency. Storm should have faced someone else with power, strength, and the ability to make him look stronger.

Grade: B

Sting calls out Dixie and tells her to trust him. He calls out Hogan and says he is a changed man. Sting says people believe in him since he cut out Bischoff from his life. The fans chant "Hogan" as the show ends.

Solid job futhering this angle for another week. Hogan/Sting/Dixie need another week or two to make this announcement have more of an impact. Let others persuae Hogan to take this job, make it more dramatic. I like how they started it and look forward to what they do in the coming weeks.

Grade: B

Impact Grade: C+
