Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction 5-10

Josh Isenberg

AJ StylesIn Ring Segment:

Christopher Daniels and Kazarian come out to the ring, and calls out AJ Styles. They talk about how AJ was on top for too long, and that Kaz and Daniels' careers were benig held back because of him. Kaz holds up a picture of Dixie Carter and AJ, which looks innocent. He then shows a picture of AJ touching Dixie's face. Lastly, he shows a picture of AJ kissing Dixie. They say they realize why he was the poster boy of TNA for so long. AJ stands in disbelief, shakes his head, and watches as Daniels and Kazarian leave.

What I Liked:

This came off rather well on TV. I love that the secret was not something that was useless. They can work with this in many angles and ways. I like the fact that the realism line was somewhat crossed, especially since AJ really has been the face of the company for such a long time. It makes complete sense for him to be involved with Dixie. I will definitely give this time to grow, as it is something interesting and a little different than our usual love stories.

What I Disliked:

No sight of Kurt Angle. I felt even him laughing or being seen would have further pushed his feud with AJ considering they have a match on Sunday against one another.

Grade: B-

Devon def. Robbie E in a TNA Television Championship Match:

What I Liked:

Good aggression by Devon in the early going. He attacks both guys, and focuses on more of a brawling fight. Robbie E is a good, not great, mid card talent. The potential he has is similar to a Shelton Benjamin character. Both are athletic and sound on the mat, but lack that "it" factor.

What I Disliked:

They book a 3 way for the TV Title at Sacrifice as Devon is backstage and is upset about the post match attacks. I do not like this match quickly thrown in, especially because it really does not have a lot of intrigue to it. I wonder if Devon will retain, which he should not. Robbie E or Robbie T would be much better suited as a guy holding this title. Devon is getting to a point where we have seen all he can do. It is a good time for a change.

Grade: C-

James Storm is seen at home. He talks about his story not ending the way he wanted it to. He also talks about not blaming Bobby Roode, and it was his fault. He is unsure if he can come back from losing in front of his family.

Joseph Park is looking for his brother, still, and says Bully Ray's name always comes up. Park says he is going to buy a ticket to watch Ray. Ray comes out and says he will do to him what he did to Morgan earlier if he does not shut up and mind his own business. Park talks about Ray losing a few weeks ago, and asks how his bullying is going with Aries. Ray shoves him down, but Park laughs and fixes his tie.

What I Liked:

They keep this angle going, now heading into the second month of Park's search for Abyss. At least they are seeing this through.

What I Disliked:

Personally, I am bored and uninterested in this entire angle. Abyss is a guy who is pushed for no reason and is made important for even less reasoning. I want this to end quickly and stop the illogical angle. We all know it will end up going nowhere and without much of a conclusion.

Grade: D
