A predictable PPV definitely but it had some really good action.

The main event between Cena and Punk was about ****1/2 and Orton vs Ziggler was another killer match probably ****. The IC title and World title matches were about *** so a good night all round for in-ring action.

If you want to check out my wrestling blog with my co-hosts of Answering the Ten Count please do

Also it is good to hear Jerry Lawler is recovering well after his heart attack at ringside last Monday night, was scary stuff. Luckily there was a ringside Doctor and EMTs backstage, it saved his life in the end.

I saw the first couple of matches from the Night of Champions ppv at my mate's house the other night, first bit of wrestling I've watched in a long time. How is TNA comparing to WWE nowadays in your opinion GD?

I am actually enjoying TNA more than the WWE the last few months.

Since going live there shows have had a lot better flow to them and most weeks there are 2-3 good matches. Young guys are getting pushed and they have let go of most of the older guys who were clogging up spots.

WWE is going backwards. Since going to 3 hour Raws they seem to be trying to extend eveything on the show and not try new things. There is some good stuff like the Cena/Punk feud but overall there whole product is falt right now.

I am really enjoying the Chemistry between Kane and Daniel Bryan.

Some of the funniest segments I have seen in quite some time from the WWE.

So who should be the chosen 2 from TNA to face Aces and Eights,

In a twist I would love one to be "The Monster" Abyss

We talked about it on our show this week. We probably think it will be Sting and Bully Ray. All the top names are already in matches.

Maybe Bully Ray and Devon going back to Team 3D for one last hurrah.

Yes I know Devon doesnt have a contract but that would be a good way to bring him in.

Another twist would be using Joey Ryan as a way of proving that he is good enough and belongs in TNA (personally I think hes trash)

Theres RVD, Mr Anderson, Samoa Joe to name a few of the talents that dont have matches, Which is a shame.

Also I would love to see Mickie get another push or maybe some ODB man shes my kind of woman. lol

I stopped watching wrestling several years ago, but from what I've seen occasionally in the last year TNA craps all over WWE now

WWE hasn't had a decent storyline in years. It's just the same predictable crap over and over. TNA seems to at least keep you guessing, from what I can tell.

Sorry can't agree

Cena vs Rock, Cena vs Lesnar, Punk vs Jericho, Punk vs Bryan, Punk vs Cena, Orton vs Ziggler and Jericho vs Ziggler all from this year have been awesome.

OK, I haven't seen any of these, but what has been unpredictable in these feuds?? What twists and turns happened that made you go "Holy **** I didn't see that coming!!"??

I dont need twists and turns, as long as they are good stories with logical booking i am happy.

Although Rock wrestling again and Lesnar just coming back made me say Holy ****.

Rock is back when it suits his movie schedule. Has had two matches so far. Looking likely at facing Cena again at Mania.

Lesnar in on a limited dates contract for the year, has had two matches against Cena and HHH. He will probably face Taker at Mania.

I watched Bound For Glory yesterday, it was alright. Weird seeing Austin Aries main eventing the big ppv, last time I saw him in TNA he was an X Division jobber. Good to see Bobby Roode and James Storm involved in the main event now, always loved Beer Money and their work before that.

Dont be fooled by Austin Aries size, Over the last year he has made me a believer.

He can wrestle, is good on the mic, for someone his size hes got a huge set of go nads. He says hes "The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived" dont agree with that but he would wrestle a good match with CM Punk or Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) they have had good matches in the past when they were all in ROH.

On this weeks episode (which i had to miss because i was away on holidays) we have interviews with former WWE Superstars John Morrison, Eugene and Chris Masters. There is also plenty of good stuff from local British Promoters and we also had a brief chat to Mick Foley in one of our earlier episodes.

I played the old-school EWR back in the day, it's pretty good, but not a patch on TEW. Seriously, if you like the management/storylines side of wrestling, it is completely worth the 30-odd bucks to purchase.

I don't have TEW2013 yet, but it apparently is another massive step-up from 2010.

You can play a free demo, Freddo, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Used to be a massive Wrestling fan, loved the Hitman and the Heart Foundation, one of the freakiest moments on my life (true **** story) was when I was playing Wresting, Royal Rumble mode on N64, think it was War Zone and when I was throwing Owen Hart out of the ring it glitched and froze with him mid air and his neck was against the rope, this was a couple months after Owen died landing in a similar spot. Me and my brother freaked the **** out like never before.

WCW kicked ass, they used to be 3 hour shows and I remember something was on for 2 weeks during the WCW slot on TNT so they aired 3 shows back to back one night. I remember sleeping all day so I could stay up and watch all three shows, well worth it.
