Sanada defeated Tigre Uno and DJ Z to retain the TNA X-Division Championship
Three words to describe this match: Fast, entertaining and entertaining. If you like high-flying offense, this is the match for you. I love watching DJ Z work in the ring because of his versatility. Sanada misses a springboard manevuer and DJ gets in and works away. Uno gets thrown to the outside and Sanada hits a high chop to DJ's head. He hits a Tiger Suplex for the win.
I really enjoyed the match, even though it seemed a little rushed. Each move seemed to be a hard one, but the opponent would get to his feet quicker than need be. Sanada continues to hold the championship and will continue to be the face of the division.
-Bully Ray continues the feud with Dixie by being in her house with Rockstar Spud. Dixie gets into the house and Ray is standing in the corner. Ethan Carter comes from behind and knocks out Bully Ray. She says that Dixie Carter fears no one. Thank God EC3 was in there because Ray needs to feud with someone other than Dixie. EC3 is a good choice because he continues to be placed in feuds with high talent and his involvement with Kurt Angle is currently on hiatus due to his injury. EC3 can really benefit by working with a veteran like Bully Ray. I think this could be an excellent feud lasting 2 months. THAT is what EC3 needs.
MVP vs. Eric Young ends in No Contest
The new heel MVP attacks the arm of Eric Young from the very beginning. After the commercial break, MVP still works on the arm with every move focused on his left arm. MVP rams him into the ring post and then a headlock take down. Eric Young gets the upper hand, but Kenny King comes out. He helps MVP take out Young. King knocks out the referee and beats down Eric Young even more. Out comes Bobby Lashley, who spears Eric Young. Lashley is on the side of the bad guys.
For once, I really enjoyed what TNA did. They added muscle and speed to the brains of the operation. These three guys are three of the more talented guys on the roster. This gives them something to do and gives Lashley importance. He needs to come out of this looking like a star.
Impact Wrestling Score: 6/10
