Another great episode. Though there weren't any major angles shot (apart from maybe the Tag Team Titles?) I thought everything delivered. Every match did what it was supposed to apart from maybe the Knockouts match, which dragged a bit in the middle but still delivered in the end. I'd never seen any of the Boot Camp members before but I'd heard them in interviews and Rockstar Spud struck me as the most talented on the mic and the best character. Looks-wise I think he's also the best, and I could see him being an X Division star in the future. We'll have to see how he wrestles. I heard that his next match is pretty crazy.
Well we got an explanation from Wes as to why he joined them. finally got a reason from one of them.
Kenny King vs Zema Ion vs RVD. Great match RVD wins it to retain the X Division title.
Storm vs Jesse was alright. Storm gets the win.
Tag Team Championship title match. Chavo/Hernandez vs Bobby/Aries. Great match. Bobby and Aries win it and are the new TNA World Tag Team Champions. This should be very good with them being the tag champs. They sort of have in fighting still both wanting to be TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
Tessmacher vs Tara who comes out without her boy toy Jesse. Good match Tessmacher wins the non title contest.
Get introduced to the British Bootcamp winner Rockstar Spud. Robbie E and Big Rob come out. Robbie E talks some trash pretends that Big Rob is holding him back and Rockstar just punches Robbie E who leaves the ring and Rockstar goes a little Delvi Horn fist pumping with big Rob.
Tables Match main event. Devon and Knox vs Bully and Sting. Very good main event. Bully 'Hulking up' was hilarious. Bully/Sting win it after Bully slams Devon through the table. no Aces & Eights run in after the match which is a nice change from the norm.
Next 2 weeks should be good as well as they are from London.
The only bad thing about TNA at the moment is the Anarchy and Eights angle, which admittedly is a large overarching theme of the show, but if you can ignore that then everything else is pretty good at the moment!
