Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction 4-12

Josh Isenberg

Austin Aries def. Christopher Daniels:

What I Liked:

Absolutely great matchup between two guys who can wrestle with a phone book and make it interesting. I love the vertical suplex in the middle of the match, giving Aries more of the offensive later in the match. Daniels held his own, as well as gaining offense with his ability to reverse and create it through his defense mechanisms. Finally, after a great combination of moves, including an elbow drop, Aries ends it with a missle dropkick and Brainbuster. Even though this match was not relevant to a point, it was great to see two X Division guys work on a show where it was desperately going to need in ring action. Most "go-home" shows focus more on talking to further a feud, but this was a nice match at the right time. I really enjoyed the effort from both guys.

Grade: A

In Ring Segment:

Jeff Hardy has a problem with Angle because he cost him the title months back. He says they will beat the hell out of each other on Sunday. He asks the fans to cheer for him.

Quick and effective, even though I wanted to see more Kurt Angle face to face with Hardy.

Eric Young and ODB Wedding:

What I Liked:

This was quite different. They lower the cage, lock it, and begin the wedding. A video is played and Young reads vowels. He says they will be a team in the ring and in marriage. She says she will not take his name, but his entrance music. Rosita and Sarita interrupt and say they are against it.Sarita and Rosita dance and strip on stage to persuade Young to make the right decision. ODB takes off her dress, does a shot, and awaits Young's decision. EY strips down, so does the minister, and they make out to make it official. I personally thought this was much different in a good way.It was comical and, even though I am not a fan of Young, he made it different and fun. I do not mind seeing females strip, especially 3 of them. I am not crazy about the angle, but at least it was not the usual garbage wedding that gets ruined.
