Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction 10-18

TaraODB Defeats Tara

What I Liked:

Tara's new gimmick being "Hollywood" is starting off on the right note. She is cocky, arrogant, and really uses her experience in the WWE to connect with the crowd here. She is not the hottest, the best in the ring, but she has no weaknesses. I cannot say that about many of the women in professional wrestling right now. Tara just does all of the right things, including sound transitions from move to move. It flows so easily and without flaw.

What I Disliked:

I did not agree with ODB picking up the victory here. If you are building a power couple, then why would that couple lose? Also, Jesse from Big Brother? I can honestly say I have never heard of this guy before, but that is what TNA is known for. They bring in C List celebrities and hope to hit TMZ. Maybe they should focus on bigger celebrities and less on TMZ. I mean, I believe Hulk has that site covered right now anyways.

Grade: C+

Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez Defeats Gunner and Kid Kash

What I Liked:

Hernandez and Chavo really work well together. It is shocking to me to see the instant chemistry between these two different wrestlers. Hernandez is the muscle, and it shows. I was very impressed with him tonight, including his brute strength to toss Gunner all around the ring. The match was solid, with Hernandez taking the bulk of the offense. Chavo did come in and take a beating from Kash and Gunner. Those guys made quick tags, sound moves, but Hernandez was too much. At BFG, we saw Hernandez do a Razor's Edge type move and have Chavo hit the Frog Splash for the win. I feel like they need to stick with this, make an identity for themselves, and then they can flourish. It is still early, but all signs are pointing up for this tag team.

What I Disliked:

With the separation of Kurt and AJ, which I agree with, there needs to be another team to fill that void. This is not going to come from Kash and Gunner. Instead of having this random match, why not have a contender's match? I know there is a rematch clause, but there are many ways to work around that. I liked the action in the match, but there is no bigger picture.
