Kester's TNA Impact Wrestling Rundown: Jeff Hardy and Bully Ray respect each other, Aces and Eights continues to be undermined, and the Gut Check participants shine
Mar 1, 2013 - 12:14 PM


By Ryan Kester

Jeff Hardy and Bully Ray

Little was accomplished in the way of this feud other than presenting both men as strong babyfaces. Ray and Hardy both got time on the mic and in the ring to shine. That's all well and good, but that doesn't make me want to pay money to see the two have a showdown.

I am anticipating a Bully Ray heel turn at Lockdown, but I really wish TNA would have turned him by now. It may make for a big PPV moment, yes, but I can see almost no reason to buy the PPV based on the show's main event when it's just two guys that respect each other and want to put on a show.

Aces and Eights

I really can't fathom what TNA is expecting to get out of this faction at this point. Once again, the group was shown to be inferior to the TNA squad when they were chased from the ring, and it took Kurt Angle being distracted in their own clubhouse for the group to get the upper hand on him.

It's getting to the point that the group is damn near beyond repair. They haven't been a threat in months and even if they win clean at Lockdown, they will still be needing to make up ground. If they win in a fluky fashion, they still will have no foundation on which to build of credibility.

Gut Check

Despite my misgivings about some of the angles at the top of the card, I really enjoyed the Gut Check segment from last night. Tapa and Felez put on one hell of a show and both women got to showcase their talents; talents that are unique to anything in TNA's current women's division.

That's not to say the match was perfect. The two women did have some timing issues, but I saw enough there to make me hopeful that TNA finds a storyline reason to get both women on the active roster soon.

Overall Show

Last night's show was chaotic to the point that very little was really accomplished. By the end of the show I felt exhausted. TNA needs to get their pacing back and they need to do so soon. I feel like tonight's show would have been a lot better if they simply would have left some segments off of the show. TNA is sorely in need of an editor.

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.
