Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction For 11/22

Josh Isenberg

TaraEric Young defeated Jesse and Robbie E. Once again, this match/feud does absolutely nothing for me. With a 3 minute match, there is not enough time for building an actual story. He won with a quick rollup onto Jesse, and the comedy bit continues. I have nothing else to say, and it may be because of the massive failure EY has been. Grade: F

Tara defeated Taeler Hendrix , which was a solid match for the women of TNA. Again, this special edition of Impact proves that they are trying to build within, but still ignore their real talent on a weekly basis. Hendrix is too skinny for me, does not have a believable fighting look, and seems a little too soft for me. She is athletic, but that is all she provides currently. The match was alright, but it was carried by the veteran presence of Tara. With her strength and size, Tara hit a few suplexes and body slams to quicken the pace of the match. She would end up winning in under 5 minutes, which shows you once again what kind of night this has become. Grade: C-

AJ Styles defeated Kazarian in what was the main event match of the night. Too short for my liking, as I felt they needed to have a solid 10-15 minute bout. We know how good both men are, so why not give them more than a quick distraction followed by a Pele Kick? I wonder if they really just wanted to make every match under 5 minutes. This match barely broke the 5 minute mark, but was a nice bounce back win for Styles. I still am holding firm in saying that Styles is going to turn heel after suffering many losses. He is due for a character change, and is going to need to provide more storylines that will benefit his strengths. Grade: B-
