Title This: Impact Wrestling Reaction 5-2-13

Kurt AngleThe Storylines

- We find out that Aries and Roode will face Bad Influence in a week to determine who will fight the champions. Chavo and Hernandez bring out the special referee, who is James Storm.

I have always been an avid fan of tag team wrestling. I really like what TNA is doing with the tag team division, but they are missing a huge opportunity. I understand what they are doing with Aces and Eights, but why don't they pair Anderson up with another member of Aces and Eights and go for the gold? Why not give Brisco and Bischoff a chance to compete with some of TNA's best? They will look more important and more powerful with gold around their waists. The only guy that is standing out from the group is Bully Ray. The rest are just guys in the background right now. This is logical and simple. Make this happen.

Grade: B-

-Kurt Angle says he is teaming with Sting to face Aces and Eights next week. He calls out AJ Styles and wants to know where he stands. He is not there to recruit him, but he wants to know where he stands. It looks like Styles will make a decision next week.

STYLES NEEDS TO BE BY HIMSELF! This is a critical point in his return. He will be lost in the shuffle with Aces and Eights. He cannot go back to being "Mr. TNA." Styles is a guy who has worked his ass off and is transitioning to a point where he character is unknown. That is actually a good thing with him. Styles should be less predictable and more surprising each and every single week.

Grade: B+
