  3. purpleurkel says:

    Do you just have to show up early to get on the rail? Anybody ever been to the impact zone?

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      It depends on the show, some shows getting there especially early will get you really close to the ring. Some shows like like the VIP thing they have going, the people with those passes will take top priority over someone who just shows up.

    Lol watch this get a better rating than Impact does, I swear they should of just kept growing the x division, its what made TNA unique in my eyes.

    Fuck Petey Williams.

    *Waits for butthurt comments and negative votes.*

    I am a major fan of Petey Williams.

  7. LAwrestling112 says:

    Am I the only one concerned with how pre taping this event the night before Genesis makes any sense at all???? and the fact that the event will probably air after IMPACT on Thursday… How will they get away with suspending all story lines regarding key players like Roode and others for this Tag Team situation …I mean they obviously wouldnt tape events on Saturday and spoil outcomes or direction for the PPV the next day or the following weeks IMPACT…It just seems to me like the programming special was a great idea but coordinating it doesn't make any sense at all…and when you want to see a company win and grow it makes you scratch your head…. Someone please make sense of this for me
