That's a much better channel to be on I'd imagine. Hopefully it helps them grow a little from where they are. Good for them. TNA, the incurable disease.

I can picture Don Callis now, on the NJPW/TNA supershow in two years time, round the back of the building siphoning petrol out of the Japanese lads cars to fill up the mini bus to get his lads back to Nashville. Or Halifax, Nova Scotia. Live and kicking.

There was a Meltz report about Davey Boy Jr. leaving NJPW recently. Davey asked if he could take a booking from Impact and got a resounding no with the reasons given being about Jeff Jarrett and their use of Okada in 2011, so that one might not be happening

They've got a deal with AXS TV. Home of the US airing of New Japan. More wrestling fans know the channel at least, and there wont be a google chrome browser popping up halfway through it.

Probably won't...

I’d say there’s a higher chance. Probably someone trying to buy Taylor Swift tickets via their own resale site

In fairness, how fucking harsh is that? Is there anyone from Dixie Carter’s 2011 top brass still even with Impact now?

To be fair to New Japan, Okada was going to be their top guy for years to come and were already planning for this.

TNA decided to put him in a racist Green Hornet rip-off gimmick.

I wouldn’t have sent anyone back their either regardless of how long it’s been.

Did anyone watch Slammiversary? From most accounts (not the TNA mentalists), it was pretty great.

Didn't really know it was happening until I saw Ian tweeting about it. No mention on here that I've seen. Read a report this morning that suggested it was a good show top to bottom. To be fair, the roster is still very decent. A few shitarses I've no interest in watching in prominent positions though. Fucking Callihan main eventing.

Seen little bits on Twitter from the show, it appears Rhyno is back with Impact as he showed up poorly disguised to gore Elgin after the World title match

I've not watched yet, but (main event spoilers)

Callihan going over Tessa? In the main event?? Fucking hell. The fucking state of it.

It was a good show I thought. I enjoyed it much more than Fyter Fest.
Elgin - Cage was two hosses doing crazy stuff and I loved it. Kross - Edwards was a good brawl and despite me really not being a fan of Callihan in any way shape or form I really enjoyed the main event.

The match is worse to watch than it sounds. Fucking disgrace. If I’d known this was on on the card I wouldn’t have ordered it.

The roster put on some decent matches, but I don’t understand how they could be getting such pathetic attendances and not just give up

Surely you know what is on the card before ordering it?!

Nah, I’d seen a someone online say it was good so just ordered it. Figured I would be wandering into spoiler territory if I started googling the card after the event had happened. 

Was first time watching the promotion in years, so I’d have been going in cold to storylines anyway

LAX have supposedly finished up with Impact. Seems to be speculation that they’re NXT-bound as they’ve worked a bunch of Progress shows over the last year or so
