Bound For Glory Could Mark New Era in TNA Wrestling

DPBFGFallout TNA Bound For Glory has come and gone, and the recent developments in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling has created a situation that has everyone in the world of wrestling buzzing. Of course, the situation being alluded to is the heel turn of probably the most popular wrestler in all of pro wrestling – Jeff Hardy. 

With weeks upon weeks of build up surrounding the “10.10.10” storyline and the mystery of “they”, the entire saga was revealed with Jeff Hardy aligning with Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff, Jeff Jarrett, Ric Flair, and the all of Fortune to form the stable, “Immortal.” 

Now following Bound For Glory, which I must admit, was subpar in comparison to other BFGs, everyone’s opinion went one of two ways: 1) It was the dumbest move TNA could make, and 2) it was a great move that will spark lots of interest. Initially, as BFG went off the air, I loved the idea, and the new direction TNA seemed to be heading in. I hated the quirky finish to the main event, but the payoff to the “they” storyline, and the possibilities it creates for future in-ring matchups were something that seemed endless. However, as with most wrestling storylines (especially TNA), I wanted to wait until the fall out on the following iMPACT to really solidify my stance. 


Well, despite the lack of wrestling on the broadcast (hopefully, due to the fall out from BFG) it seems that TNA Wrestling is on to something that may take the company to a new level. The series of promos and interaction between Dixie Carter and Immortal is great stuff that seems to be setting things in motion for the next few months. More impressive was the new persona of Jeff Hardy who is refreshed and impressive in his new role as a heel. 

And while some may still complain about the direction of the company, the television ratings of last Thursday’s iMPACT prove that many are interested in the new direction the company is headed in. While I still hope for more X-Division action, the new and current direction of TNA Wrestling is proving to be the best thing going in the wrestling industry today, and most importantly, could be the start of a new era in TNA Wrestling.

Impact Wrestling OverDrive 2022 Review: "Impact is Toast...You Know What You're Getting"

Impact Wrestling pay-per-views (or special events) in 2022 aren't just the biggest kept secret in the professional wrestling world, but they've also been the most underrated positive within pro wrestling going forward. Much of what Scott D'Amore and company have done this year should be celebrated. The product hasn't always been a must-see, but at the same time, it hasn't been terrible. Impact is toast. You know what you're getting. It's not fancy, but you know what you're getting. And in various forms, it can be amazing.  Bad analogies aside, Impact Wrestling wrapped up 2022 with yet another banger in OverDrive. The mini-big shows have really become a nice touch for the company in moving their storylines along, and at times, allowing the ability to give focus and opportunity to characters and talent to be highlighted. It's been a long road since this company was generating One Night Only shows that meant and felt like, well, impactless.  Nonetheless

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/27/22

3 Up 1. Thomas James & Richard Fierro - Despite the horror of the recent shooting at the Colorado Night Club, I would be remiss if I didn't give props - and the top "Up" spot - to these two gentlemen who not only served our country in the military at one point in their lives, but also saved many more by taking down the shooter at Club Q.  Much respect. Much appreciation.  2. Olivia Pichardo - Does anyone know how difficult D1 baseball is? I don't think many know, understand it, or appreciate it. What Olivia Pichardo has accomplished as a freshmen at Brown University by becoming the first woman to make the roster of a D1 baseball team is damn impressive. She also did it as a walk-on. Wow! 3. Thanksgiving/Holiday Weekend - Whether you celebrated Thanksgiving, or just enjoyed the days off in appreciation of your family and gratitude, I hope the days off were a good one for you and yours.  3 Down 1. Mass Shootings - I can't say anything else on these. They just n

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Life Itself (2018)

Who is in it?  The happenstance and journey of a young New York City couple cause a reverberation of several instances and effects that echos and effects several others through various generations.  What is it about? Oscar Isaac - Will Olivia Wilde - Abby Olivia Cooke - Dylan Sergio Peris-Mencheta - Javier Gonzalez Laia Costa - Isabel Diaz Antonio Banderas - Mr. Saccione Favorite Scene:   The alternate scene from the original bedroom scene between Will and Abby shows a different version of what happened with the exact words used, just a different tone - indicating that life itself isn't the greatest narrator, and we all have our own versions of a story that is possibly part of a bigger story.  Favorite Quote:  "I crave a happy life, grandpa. I have an almost desperate craving for stability and happiness like fat people crave chocolate or lost hikers crave rescue. I want to live a big, great, fantastical life, but I am concerned that the tragedy that seems to follow me, the tra

Survivor Series 2022 Review: "Served it's Purpose" on Thanksgiving Weekend

There was something especially "traditional" about the Survivor Series happening over Thanksgiving weekend that added to the intrigue and the overall aura of the event. Something that felt well, overall anticipatory and "right" for a wrestling event on a Thanksgiving Saturday night (you know, if that's a thing going forward - maybe?). Of course, all of this is ironic considering this Survivor Series event took a break from the historical concept of the 5-on-5 survivor tag-team format for the much more WCW-ish, "War Games". As Triple H (or do we call him Paul, now? Mr. LeVeque? Mr. Triple H? Mr. Helmsley?) noted in the post-show press conference, the break was indeed a nice change of pace, allowing the old format to take a breather and gain some nostalgic interest for the events to come.  Nonetheless, Survivor Series was welcomed and it was a good show. For me, the War Games matches were there and were entertaining. Everyone in those matches felt like t
