Thought the show was ok. I really liked the opening. That was an expensive yet very well done opening. I didnt like the beginning 30 mins. of the show. I mean the brawl went on way too long. Also, the building seemed very dark and the sound was off. I mean maybe it was me, but I couldnt hear a lot of the chants. When I did hear the chants some of it was edited by Destination America. The street fight was eh. I mean I really couldnt hear Angle and MVP on the mic but from what they said sounded good. I do like when they have street fights, falls count anywhere matches and they dont have there gear on. Just street clothes. I guess that's what I remember when I was growing up watching wrestling. Anyway, back to the street fight. It was eh like I said. Nothing wrong with it but who has submission holds in a street fight? Thats what I didnt like about it.
I thought production had a bad night. I mean especially when they missed the reveal of Low Ki and Joe and the slap JB gave EC3. Instead there seemed to be a shot of Tyrus's crotch. Hopefully, that can be corrected. I dont see why JB is now inserted in this feud. I mean is he going to fight EC3?
Can somebody stop Storm's character? I mean he's ripping off Bray Wyatt. Hell he even did the "I'm the devil" that Wyatt did on Raw. Storm deserves a lot better than this. He should be challenging for the World Title. The Revolution looks more like the 1998 version of the Job Squad. I will say that I am looking forward to The Wolves vs. The Hardys. That should just be a damn good match.
The battle royal is what you'd see on Raw or Smackdown although I liked Kong coming back and loved the staredown between her and Havok. Btw, didnt Havok win her first match in a battle royal? That should've been mentioned. DJ was actually one of the highlights with his intro of Robbie E. I will say if Brooke could attack Robbie E. during the battle royal, why couldnt she compete in it?
X-Division was very good and Aries and Low-Ki have great chemistry. I'd like to see these guys go 20 mins. Surprised they took the title off of Low-Ki considering he's in the group with MVP. I mean didnt Low-Ki win the title on the final show before Impact went on hiatus? Then why bother having him win the title in the first place?
I mean I dont like the heel turns of Joe and Young. Young as a heel will give me flashbacks to the World Elite faction. Joe is too popular to turn heel. I just dont like it. EY was good as the babyface in peril and why they need to turn him I'll never know. I'd like to see EY stay babyface and maybe turn Roode heel although he just turned babyface recently. Joe IS your best babyface option in my opinion without AJ Styles. I mean over the years Joe has had some lousy story lines(remember when he was kidnapped? The big knife he used to carry to the ring? His ill conceived turn and joining the Main Even Mafia?) Despite all that, the fans love Joe. I like Joe too. He reminds me somewhat of Taz, a guy that can throw suplexes, is no nonsense and just kicks ass. He's more agile than Taz was but I think he should be the centerpiece of Impact Wrestling.
What did you guys think of the show? These are just my opinions.
