TNAMecca Presents CHAT - Apr 20, 2015


Welcome to TNAMecca Presents CHAT!  Although we aren't an open forum where members can start their own threads, our sense of community spirit is what sets us apart from other wrestling sites so we thought it'd be fun to give our members the ability to dictate the discussion throughout the week via CHAT.  Anything goes in CHAT but we do ask that most topics remain TNA-related. You can also discuss any rumors from any source regardless of how ludicrous they might sound.  However, the same etiquette rules that apply to our comments section in general also will apply here, including our policy on spoilers.

Ringside: Impact Wrestling Review - Apr 17, 2015


Once again Impact had a theme for this particular show "Tag Team Gold", with Eddie Edwards out injured the Wolves decided to relinquish the World Tag Team Titles, opening the door for 8 teams to compete against each other to crown new champions. With legends like the Hardys, the interesting pairing of Bram & EC3, the reunion of the Dirty Heels and the guarantee of a 4 team Ultimate X match, this show was set to deliver another quality 2 hour broadcast.

Post-Impact Discussion for Apr 17, 2015


One of my favorite activities after watching Impact is searching for forums in which fans can talk about the show and share with one another their thoughts.  However, it's getting increasingly harder to find venues where TNA fans can safely express their opinions on Impact without having to deal with the trolling of the anti-TNA crowd or the smarks who insist on taking the fun out of pro wrestling.

For this reason, we felt it was important to make TNAMecca available to our readers and any TNA fans who would like to discuss the show after watching it.  You can now visit TNAMecca immediately following Impact to do exactly that in the comments section below each and every week.  So please feel free to share with us your thoughts on tonight's Tag Team Gold on Destination America from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.  What did you think of the show?  What did you like or dislike?  Let us know.

TNAMecca Exclusive: Q&A with Matt Hardy


Tomorrow night on a special episode of Impact, Tag Team Gold, eight teams will compete for the chance to become the new TNA tag team champions. One of those teams are the Hardys, and although they've held many championships in their career, the TNA tag team championship is not one of them. Can the Hardys outlast seven other teams to become the TNA tag team champions for the first time? Well, let's hear from Matt Hardy, who has taken the time to answer some questions for us. Our exchange is below:

TNA Friday Randomania - Apr 17, 2015


- Tonight's episode of Impact centers around the Tag Team Division and specifically the vacant tag team titles. The tag titles were relinquished, two weeks ago, by the Wolves due to Eddie Edwards' inability to compete because of a serious foot injury. As a result, TNA's giving eight teams an opportunity to compete in tonight's tag team tournament, in which there will be four qualifying matches. The winners of each qualifying match (four in total) will advance to compete in the main event, an Ultimate X match, to crown new tag team champions, and it's all taking place in one night in what TNA is calling Tag Team Gold.

TNA and Taz have Decided to Part Ways


TNA Executive Vice-President John Gaburick announced via Twitter that Color Commentator Taz has left the company. As you may be aware there has been a rumour circulating the last 24 hours that the two sides were having issues regarding pay, allegedly leading to Taz not participating in a scheduled recording session to do announce work for the next several episodes of Impact. We at TNAMecca would like to thank Taz for his 5 years of service and wish him the best for the future.

Ringside: Impact Wrestling Review - Apr 10, 2015


This week's Impact opened with last week's controversial ending to the world title match between Kurt Angle and Lashley. Clearly, Lashley's shoulders were not down and as a result, Kurt Angle should not have been declared the winner. Unfortunately, as is often the case in sports, a referee's call can not be reversed so all that's left to do is simply accept it and move on. Lashley, however, confronted Angle and reasoned with him to give him another shot at the title due to last week's finish. Kurt Angle, never one to back down from a challenge, seemed willing to accept until Eric Young, the new #1 contender based on this week's TOP 5 rankings, insisted that Lashley step aside because he had his chance. This is another example of the writers thinking long term (Eric Young vs Lashley and/or Kurt Angle) while not quite ready to close the book on Angle vs Lashley. It's intricate storytelling as its best. In the end, the segment ended with the booking of a three-way world title match in the main event, but not before Lashley accidentally speared Angle after his intended target, Eric Young, moved out of the way. It's smart booking by TNA simply because it saves the much-anticipated rematch between Kurt Angle and Lashley for a later time, perhaps at a live show this Spring, while keeping EY relevant.

TNAMecca Exclusive: Q&A with Drew Galloway


Tomorrow night on a special episode of Impact, in which TNA in collaboration with Destination America will air fans' tweets live during the show, Drew Galloway and the Rising will battle the Beat Down Clan in a six-man fight. A feud fueled by the genuine hatred of its combatants and highlighted by the blood that's been spilt, tomorrow night's clash promises to continue this trend. I'm happy to report that Drew Galloway, just a day before his war against the BDC, took the time to answer some questions exclusively for TNAMecca. Below is our exchange:
