TrailBlazin' Top 5 - Jun 28, 2016


As we sit two weeks away from Destination X, many fans were not pleased with this week's edition of Impact Wrestling. Quite honestly, I was apart of that group. The show started out on a positive note, ended on a positive note, but everything in between wasn't fantastic. I really had to turn up my positive outlook to pump out this week's Top 5 for you readers to enjoy!

Impact Live Discussion for Jun 28, 2016

 
Many wrestling fans enjoy participating in fun discussions during Impact every week, whether it's on social media or wrestling sites. However, it's getting increasingly harder to find places 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 share their opinions with other fans during the show.  You can now visit TNAMecca to do exactly that in the comments section below each and every Tuesday afternoon at 12PM EST. We feel that Tuesday nights will be a must-watch night of television and we're confident that TNAMecca will be the place to be for real wrestling fans. So make sure you join us every Tuesday afternoon at 12PM EST for our live Impact discussion.

Roller Coaster Ride Anyone?


There's a roller coaster ride at Universal Studios Orlando named "Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit".  This particular coaster has some scarily fast inclines and declines as you tear along the track with music blasting in your ears.  One second your stomach is rapidly sinking as you climb up and up and the next second you feel as if you'll literally fly out of your seat as the ride plummets down with amazing gravitational force.  I've been on this roller coaster myself some years ago and the ironic thing, as I relate this theme park ride experience to the recent events in TNA, is that its track weaves through the same set of buildings that make up the sound stages where Impact has been taped for years.  While you wait in line for entry to the Impact Zone, you can hear the screams and yelling from patrons over and over as they experience the thrilling, adrenaline-inducing excursion.  These extreme ups and downs do apply to how things have transpired for Impact Wrestling lately, albeit some items have been totally out of their direct control.  Slammiversary was very successful as they delivered an above average Pay-Per-View that was well received by fans and critics alike.  They accomplished this in the midst of the worst mass shooting in modern day U.S. history that happened in Orlando earlier that same morning.  It was inspiring to see such great reactions from the IZ crowd as the wrestlers provided much needed escapism to a city that had just experienced a devastating tragedy mere hours before. TNA was riding very high by the end of that Sunday night despite daunting circumstances.  Then, just 2 days later, PopTV absolutely shit the bed with the Impact LIVE broadcast as the show did not air at its scheduled time due to technical difficulties.  All of the fantastic mojo that the fans and everyone involved in the company were riding high on slowly trickled out the window in a slithering cloud of smoke.

Slammiversary: I'm In!


This year so far has been a different than normal experience for me in regards to viewing Impact.  As I've explained before, I do not have PopTV on my cable lineup so I've been watching the show online, usually days later.  Even with that annoying challenge, I've still seen every Impact episode in 2016 and, like many others, witnessed some aspects of TNA's flagship program being great and also some segments being less than desirable.  There have been a lot of roster changes and an evolution of which wrestlers are featured and which are not.  Most of us have not been thrilled about TNA's extended Impact Zone residency (besides those of you that can feasibly attend the tapings in person in Orlando).  Initially I was very disappointed that Slammiversary was announced to be held at the IZ again.  That was nearly a legitimate deal breaker for me and I had previously written that it would indeed be just that unless the actual card lineup was "must see".  I admit that I am not totally enamored with every scheduled match, but my gut is telling me to order this show.  So, after letting the on-screen product play out for the past several months, the pros of buying Slammiversary have outweighed the cons for me and I have decided to join you in watching this Pay-Per-View LIVE!

Let White Lightning Strike


When TNA British Bootcamp 2 was revealed and started in 2014 fans were overly hyped due to the top notch talented that infests the British wrestling scene. As tryouts were aired within the first set of shows fans became more invested with the concept than the previous year because more talent were being featured. Exciting names such as Kay Lee Ray, Nikki Storm, Kristoffer Travis (RIP), Noam Dar, Mark Andrews etc.. took part in this challenge for a TNA contract. Right off the bat viewers and judges were impressed with Mark Andrews charisma and high flying style that he possessed. He made everything that he did seem effortless and he threw off a vibe that screamed “Star In The Making”. In the final set of matches Mark went one on one with his long time best friend, Kristoffer Travis. They put on a phenomenal match for the time that they were given and fans fell in love with the both of them. In the final 3 it came down to Rampage Brown, Kay Lee Ray, and Mark Andrews. In the end TNA president, Dixie Carter announced Mark Andrews as the winner, rewarding him a TNA contract.
