After what I felt was a pretty action-packed week last week following the PPV, we seem to be entering a brief lull before the build up to Survivor Series really ratchets up. That’s not to say it was a totally dead week-we do have a main event for the PPV booked, however underwhelming some may feel that it is. Personally, I felt like Bryan was abruptly pushed off the main event stage, and Big Show, while getting a pop, is not the best choice to be replacing Daniel. I certainly don’t imagine a scenario in which Orton drops the strap to Show at this point….
That being said, as always I’ve had a good amount of comments to review, and I’ve selected a number of ones which I felt were the cream of the crop for this week.
From my Why I Rarely Watch TNA piece:
Damian Starr :”Having only started watching in 2011, all new to the wrestling experience, couldn’t watch WWE didn’t have the means to. But in the UK TNA is surprisingly big, it’s on free TV so anyone can see it unlike WWE. I’ve gone around and seen TNA merch about, much more than WWE (probably because the ones watching TNA are full time wrestling fans). I have only experienced the ‘bad times’ of TNA and i actually have quite enjoyed it. If TNA could return to the better times, i think i might just wet myself a little! Everyone knows a little competition is good for any business, long live TNA in my books”
z…. :”You missed out until January 2010…since then, not so much. To be fair though, I dont know how you can still watch WWE. I gave up there 5 years ago, and limited my exposure for 2 years prior to that. As bad as TNA has been since January 2010, it was definitely still better than WWE at times (though that isnt really saying much). Right now though, I cant really say anything b/c I’m done with both…One thing you can count on with TNA though is seeing them put on a great match”
