Post-Impact Discussion for Feb 27, 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 episode of Impact on Destination America from the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England.  What did you think of the show?  What did you like or dislike?  Let us know.

TNAMecca Presents CHAT - Feb 23, 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 for one night a week.  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 - Feb 20, 2015


I've always been an optimistic person when it comes to TNA and their product.  Although, with an IMPACT like we saw this week, I'm not sure how most fans are not feeling optimistic about TNA's future.  The show flew by and came across as very engaging.  The crowd was large and energetic.  We kicked things off with a fast paced and enjoyable 3 on 3 match as Storm, Abyss and Manik found themselves on the losing end of things against Matt Hardy and The Wolves.  Personally, I'm still not sure if Manik is being booked to eventually leave The Revolution.  He definitely got some tough love post-match as his carcass had to be dragged out of the arena due to a Black Hole Slam punishment for being pinned.  I just hope that the Great Sanada gets some ring time soon because he is definitely the most underutilized member of the group right now.  The Wolves and Hardy showed great chemistry together during this fight.

TNA Friday Randomania - Feb 20, 2015


- It's been quite an eventful week and unfortunately, the biggest story of the week has been Samoa Joe's departure from TNA. I will admit, I was genuinely shocked when I read the news. I was under the assumption that the two sides had perhaps agreed to a new deal since his contract expired in December and he had been a member of the company's top heel faction. But I suppose the fact that his was not one of the names announced last month of wrestlers who had signed new deals should've been a red flag. Nobody knows the real reason why TNA and Samoa Joe ultimately parted ways after almost a decade so I won't speculate but I will say this, I don't begrudge either side their right to make the best possible decision for themselves and neither should you.  I understand that some look for someone to blame in times like these, and sadly many of the dirtsheets have tried their best to stir the pot by pointing the finger squarely at TNA, but this is simply a case in which the two sides could not agree to sign on the dotted line. It's business. And that's all this was.

TNA and Samoa Joe Part Ways


Samoa Joe and TNA Executive Vice President John Gaburick announced Joe's departure from the company this evening. I have to say I'm very surprised by this, as it really came out of nowhere. With the recent formation of the BDC, I never thought that Joe would decide now was the time to move on, however with it being clear that MVP is the leader of that faction, meaning he will be the one to be challenging for the World Title, Joe must have thought that his chances of a main event push in the near future were doubtful, and at almost 36 years old, realised he can't afford to wait much longer for his chance and decided to move on to try and get that opportunity somewhere else. It's a damn shame to see Joe leave, as creatively he's not been used to his full potential for several years, but regardless of that continued to deliver some fantastic matches in the Heavyweight, Tag & X Divisions. On behalf of everyone at TNAMecca, I'd like to thank Joe for all of his great contributions over the last 10 years, and wish him the very best as he moves on to the next chapter of his career.

Ringside: Impact Wrestling Review - Feb 13, 2015


For this edition of Impact we didn't have a big hook like we've seen in previous weeks, this week's show was simply the fallout from Lockdown & the first show on the UK tour. I don't think anyone really knew what to expect from the Lockdown Fallout, we were told there would be an update on Jeff Hardy's condition, and we expected some kind of reaction from the BDC after Lashley helped Team Angle last week. While there wasn't much to go on, the UK tour never fails to deliver, so anticipation as to what would go down this week was high.
