Watching Turning Point, came in late. Probably gonna line for line with ILMH:

Longshot: Probably can't use Gallows, just call him Drew Hankerson or something similiar
ILMH: I hope Happy and Sleepy don't interfere.
Longshot: Dopey is in the main event I think

Watching a match between a guy named Doc and a joke character in Joseph Park... it makes me :( that these two guys both have had far more exposure than Joe, the TV Champion.

That's ironic as I have an unlawfully low level of patience for this crap.

The worst part of this match was Joseph Parks running the ropes. He's a fucking wrestler, I don't need disbelief suspended quite that much.

Joseph Parks doing the retard hulk out thing against the former Festus is funny I guess.

"Your winner, DOC!"

I've heard better and more appealing ring announcing in PSOne videogames.

Yes! Bully's here! Saving the guy who two months ago he was blood rivals with.

Thank God that is over.

Bobby Roode, make me like this show please.

Did anyone else notice that Daniels and Kaz wear the tag belts as cod pieces?

I love the cod piece belt wearing.

This tag match has great potential, but I just can't get behind Chavo already holding a belt already. Especially since EVERY CHAMPION (short of Joe) is a WWE established guy.

Does TNA pay royalties to Nintendo for Chavo's music? I would swear it's the cave level music.

Can someone explain why Chavo Guerrero is such a big deal? He's good, don't get me wrong, but he nowhere near as good as people tout him to be.

I miss Kerwin White.

I think "people" is most Chavo, himself. I remember being a Chavo fan when he was in WCW, but he has always been overshadowed in one way or another by superior wrestlers.

God I want to be more into this match. I miss tag team wrestling and should embrace any that comes along. I just can't enjoy this. Chavo and Hernandez are sloppy and unorganized, Daniels and Kaz are becoming very bland and overdone, and the commentary is weaker than American beer. Also, the crowd is dead.

How dare you!? I've heard some completely asinine statements but this takes the cake! The sheer ignorance and complete misinformation campaign you are spreading must cease and desist immediately! American beer is good as long as you get a microbrew! Coors is strictly for hydration, PBR is for drinking when you can't taste anything anymore, and anything else that comes in a 30 pack is strictly for drinking games.

The commentary is weak and so is this match though.

This ppv instantly got 3 times better, once AJ showed up.

Joke's on you, TNA, 3 times 0 is still nothing.

This SHOULD be the match of the night. That being said, any match involving any two of the three men (Storm, Roode, Styles) should always be the match of the night.

Who the fuck would sign up for this stipulation. "Yeah, we know that the world title is defended like 4-5 times throughout the month on ppv, Impact and Open Fight Night, but if you lose this ONE MATCH, you don't get a title shot for a year. It's like signing up for Feast or Fired."

You essentially guarantee that one guy you've built to main event status doesn't fucking matter for a full year.

Whoa whoa whoa. It's Devon vs. Angle? I thought it was Devon/Bully. If I had paid for this, I would be mega pissed.

At least it shows how greatly promoted this has been.

This ends in a brawl or TNA didn't book it. Where's Angle's boy? Wes Briscoe?

There has not been ONE mention of the main event. Not a single one. A first time ever match. A ladder match. For your world title. Not. A. Single. Word.

But hey, all three in the nonsensical "Win and be happy or lose and not be able to do anything worth mentioning for a year" match had interviews. As did EY/ODB.

I don't like either man in the main. But they deserve better.

Now that you mention it, I didn't know the main event was a ladder match. I am no fan of either wrestler, but hopefully the match will have a cool spot or two at least.

I'm looking forward to the quality of the main. Not the outcome, as I will disagree with everything short of AJ coming in, winning and Jeff Hardy being fired.

The best part is when instead of blocking the way out, they just let Angle roll out to the ramp and walk away. They didn't even chase him.

Main event time. Pretape first. They really could have shown this a lot earlier.

Uh yeah like 2 hours ago. Aries REALLY sold the match with his promo bit. "I was doing this for $50 early in my career, imagine what I will do for the TNA World Title." Awesome line.
