Kester's TNA Impact Wrestling Rundown: Jeff Hardy successfully defends the TNA Title, Aces and Eights serves a higher power, and Bully Ray requests his suspension to be lifted
Jan 25, 2013 - 04:53 PM


By Ryan Kester

Jeff Hardy and Christopher Daniels

I enjoyed the main event these two had. They worked a great pace and the near falls down the stretch were well done. Daniels and Hardy have a certain chemistry together in the ring what makes for an exciting match.

I hope that TNA continues this feud going forward. Daniels deserves to be in the main event with the quality heel work he's done during this run, and I think he has the promo chops to make a longer feud work.

Aces and Eights

The follow up to last week's great attack was lackluster. Yes, Taz is a good talker, but he's coming off as more as a pissy old wrestler than he does as a credible threat to anyone in TNA. There is some value in Taz to be sure, but I can't help but feel like having him on commentary defeats the purpose of making him a promo guy for Aces and Eights. When he's talking all evening as it is, his promos for the group don't come off as particularly special.

The talk of a "higher power" from Taz feels like it's been pulled out of someone's backside. Aces and Eights does not come off as a group of zealots or even like they've been attacking TNA guys at the behest of anyone. I like the idea of raising the stakes and leading up to a big reveal for TNA's leader, but if this is a vehicle for Eric Bischoff to return to TNA television, then they're better off not even bothering.

Bully Ray

Bully Ray continues to do well in whatever role he's given. I may not be high on the story he is involved in, but I have enjoyed his work.

I still hold out hope that Ray will turn heel again down the line. He's good as a face, but TNA is hurting for guys that can really get under a crowd's skin, and Ray is spectacular as a heel.

Overall Show

Last night's show was decent to solid for me. I found the show to be enjoyable. I went in expecting a bit of a bye week that focused more on hyping the big show next week then it did on progressing things this week, and that's exactly what we got.

If you have any questions or comments or just wish to chat with a fellow wrestling fan about whatever, then feel free to email me at ryan.kester@gmail.com or follow me on Twitter.
