Can't believe how small the audience has got, it echoes when a fan shouts something, I was at a wrestling event in a local leisure centre last night that had a bigger crowd.

The audience is awful.

Apparently they taped 3 shows with little notice midweek.

I think at this point, they are just looking to the future. If there is one of course!

the camera work is putting me off a little but I'm guessing they have done that to hide the lack of audience.

That spot by Jeff was one of those that could have cost his career the way he set up the table, the legs could have easily snapped in on his head and hit an eye.

The stupidest thing about this match was that it was a week before their biggest "ppv"

I can see why people are rating this match so highly. It's full of spots but it's been quite good!

The spot where Jeff went through the table the table the wrong way was horrible. It could have so easily have gone wrong.

It was a very good spotfest though I certainly wouldn't describe it as a great wrestling match. I felt sorry for them tbh and it kind of reminded me of the film The Wrestler, trying to recreate past glories to a diminishing fan base.

If you put that match on in front of a wwe crowd, people would be talking about it for years. The biggest mistake was to put that match on in front of a crowd that wasn't there.

I know that they are treading water until the new year but hat match was ridiculously good for a crowd of about 100 people.

It was full of spots but it was still really good and so different to anything that wwe does

Watched the show earlier in the week, I enjoyed the FMM match but I wouldn't say it was a MOTY contender, it's not even the best match in TNA this year, though it was certainly memorable.

I think part of the problem with the crowd reaction is that reportedly the segements and matches were taped out of sequence and spliced together to make shows, must be hard to get into something if you can't follow what's happening.

It was different to what WWE do nowadays, a Rollins suicide dive from a balcony or an Ambrose run over tables is about it now.
I wouldn't though let my kids watch that match so perhaps it does remain a match for a different time?

Have to agree with House on the segments, the show as a whole just didn't flow, the segments felt like a interview with a quiz show contestant after they'd been knocked out.

TBH I'm not sure I agree. It was certainly full of insane stunts that were great to watch, but I'm not sure it was the best match of the tag team series.

I think the other matches were better as the teams had time and space to actually work as teams, which always feels better to me. For this one, there was so much equipment everywhere, the ring (and ringside) looked more like a DIY store. I think this meant the wrestlers were always having to check where they were before performing moves and lots of time was spent moving stuff around, which to my mind really disrupted the flow of the match...the old adage about too many cooks springs to mind.

Still - full marks to Team 3D, the Hardys and the Wolves for displaying remarkable bravery (or sheer lunacy?) and putting on a great spectacle.




Definitely agree that the crowd were terrible for most of the show, which killed a lot of the atmosphere and excitement. Weird that the best response, apart from the tag team final, was when Spud stood up to EC3. Perhaps an indicator to TNA's creative team that they should script more character-driven storylines, where they can get behind specific individuals, for a particular reason?

Would also gree the majority of the matches weren't up to much - the best apart from the main event being Storm's Revolution versus Low Ki and Tigre Uno.
