Kurt Angle and AJ Styles vs. Hernandez and Chavo Ends in No Contest
What I Liked:
Impact starts off with some great tag team wrestling. I think it is very funny to see the career of two basic WWE guys now in TNA, in the same conversation. You would have never seen Chavo and Angle in a same storyline in the WWE. I did enjoy this match to start off Impact because all four guys are deserving of getting the spotlight. Chavo is always going to be Chavo, but he is able to help Hernandez gain some credibility and somewhat resurrect his career.Hernandez was the strength of the match, which included an athletic looking body block onto Styles. As the match continued, they focused on more of a technical mat wrestling, with Chavo and Angle carrying the match. Kazarian and Daniels, the champions, come out and attack the men in the ring. Hogan sets up a triple threat tag team title match at Bound For Glory. Great match set up, and gives you a few weeks to impliment all 6 guys together. This could be an entertaining build for BFG.
-Hulk Hogan is seen backstage talking to Joseph Park on the phone, who tells Hogan he has evidence on Aces and Eights.
-Dixie and Bruce Pritchard are backstage arguing about who is behind Aces and Eights.
Doug Williams Defeats Evan Markopolous
What I Liked:
This was another Gut Check, with Williams facing off against an extreme lightweight. Williams plays the William Regal role, a guy past his prime but can still work inside the ring and provide competition for younger guys.
What I Disliked:
This was not a good match, and had no interest from the crowd. The crowd simply zones out during the recent Gut Checks because they know most of these guys, they will never see again. Markopolous is quick, agile, but has NO good look to him. He does not look like he is a wrestler whatsoever.
