    That's because the show was solid from start to finish. Hogan not taking up 20 mins also helps. Bully looked like a strong face and should set the stage for his eventual turn on Hogan and TNA. I hope the two girls on gutcheck get signed. Both different and was a solid first match. If they need to make room there is a certain Hooters girl who is struggling with the "wrestling" side of things.

      It was a good show, but you know people like Hogan will claim it had to do with Jeff returning to TV, then proceed to jam Hardy down our throats and lead to the ratings declining back down…

    • Stunner says:

      I totally agree, both of the KOs Gut Check contestants had good movement in the ring and they both got reaction from the crowd at different points! I say sign them both !!

      • UCEAD11 says:

        I honestly think those who watch WWE who are the wrestlng fans tuned in to check out the gut check episode for this week. Why ? they probably know Ivalese if they have follow her career and probably wanted to see her "wrestle" rather than perform. Also, Tapa is just a beast of a woman. School her up some more, I think she could be greater than Awesome Kong. She has a better arsenal than just the power bomb, spinning punch, and the boob buster. She is huge too.

      If you ever say they should get rid of Ms. Asstastic again, I will find you.

      • Peckar says:

        They should get rid of that chick who does that unattractive ass grinding and has no timing or precision whatsoever. Velvet is sexy, she has improved, we don't need a C class version of her.

    • ariesstormjoe says:

      wouldnt say shes struggling with the wrestling side of things at all. shes improved a lot over the years.

      tna how have a too big a roster now simply for a weekly 2 hour show. need another show. to fit ppl in.

      • Peckar says:

        no she hasn't, that is a fallacy.

      • UCEAD11 says:

        You guys are talking about Brooke. She is also dating Robbie E. Speaking of which, what do you want to bet that turning of Robbie T will mean Robbie E and Mr Pectacular are on their way to becoming a new Tag Team with possibly Tara teaming with Brook.

        • Peckar says:

          I bet they are not since they will be feuding now. Robbie T sucks no matter how many gimmicks they give him. Robbie E's lacky is the only thing he hasn't sucked at.

  2. DJBIGCG says:

    Good job by tna getting that rise in ratings

  3. revrock20 says:

    1 word. Live. 2 words. No spoilers

  4. CaptainN says:

    So who does everyone feel Kurt angle unmasked at the end of the the show?

  5. jbcissom says:

    The increases are nice, but I want to see the breakdown.

    And I'm glad that EY is finally back!!!! It's Showtime!

  6. tna24 says:

    i love the show, because sting pick a solid team, one of my favorite wrestler ey is back and kurt unmask someone who he knew. so it make me really want to see who it is

  7. pacojerte says:

    its because EY came back but i hope they sign Velez and Tapa they both look like they have a bright future, When Sting was yelling Showtime I was waiving my arms up and down doing the don't fire Eric im pretty sure i wasnt the only. Glad to see my 3sec before prediction was right EY is a solid wrestler.

    • tna24 says:

      when he doesnt joke around and pulls his pants down

    • xenocea says:

      Really solid show this week. no Hogan hogging the spotlight, decent matches are put out. And the cliff hanger ending reminiscent to the older wcw days was done really well. It make's you want to watch next's show to see who it was.

      Velez and Tapa put on a pretty good first match. Both have different styles and are not there to just look pretty. They would make a great additions to the knockout divisions.

    • Laker says:

      Sign them both. They both have something different. Velez does submissions and Tapa shows strength. They both put on a great match.

  8. CaptainN says:

    Yes it time for him to and for EY and ODB to drop those Knockout Tag Titles, and break up. And did anyone ever notice that he is a Grand Slam champion, considering he had won the X-division, TV, Mens Tag Team and Womans Tag Team belts !!

  9. dcxboxx says:

    its obvious kurt will unmask jeff jarret lame. id rather see steiner or someone who is a big star be the leader and not a midcard guy like jarret

    • jbcissom says:

      You're kidding, right? I'm not a Jarrett fan, but you've got to give the guy his due. He's arguably one of the best heels in the business. As a heel, the only person that gets more heat than him right now is arguably CM Punk.

  10. rrrwwws says:

    He didnt unmask jarrett , and jarrett is not a mid card guy, maybe in wwe he was but

    Not in tna. I think it was d’lo, it has yo be somebody we would know but

    not to big of a name cuz they unmasked him on impact not a ppv.

  11. Mr. Excitement says:

    I find it funny an Impact taping from the Impact zone pulled higher ratings that the ones taped in the U.K.

  12. powerbomb says:

    i dont think it was jj the guy is bigger than kurt angle

  13. UCEAD11 says:

    I think its Abyss too. What I would like to see though is Kurt Angle knowing who the unmasked guy is….that they keep it from us for another three to four weeks. Only giving clues each week as to who it was. But you can tell when the fake voice was talking the enunciation was clearly Abyss.

  14. annil8or4321 says:

    its d lo, the body shape is totally him, and he did get brisco signed during gutcheck when snow was "mysteriously" out

  15. (CHI) NWO 4-Life WCW Guy says:

    I watched it slowly on my dvr and it definately isnt dlo, dude had white wrists last time i checked dlo was dark, that would suck if it was dlo, who the hell is dlo to be a vp (vice president) even wen he could wrestle in 99 98 he still sucked no1 wants to see dlo as a top guy in any click, tna HAS to do better than that, whoever it iz has to be a decent reveal, i think the only way this would payoff if it was jarret and either vince russo or bishoff, along with a big outside name that would fit the aces and eights perfectly, i could think of 3 guys i can see being top guys and fitting the biker roll well, goldberg batista or bobby lashley, and none of the above mentioned was who was unmasked by kurt by the way, he was slow, he was chubby and definately a white dude…
