The Main Events

Impact Wrestling Reaction-Bully Ray came out and attacked Mr. Anderson during his entrance. He cuts an amazing promo about how he is going to be controlling the future of his children. This was one word: Perfect. Bully Ray said all the right things and executed his attack to perfection. I absolutely love when I have a blurred lines between reality and fiction. Ray did this for me tonight. I fully expect this feud to carry on into 2014 and both men meet back during the summer of next year. Well done.

Grade: A

Feast or Fired

There are four men that are holding briefcases to see what is in store for them. Ethan Carter III grabbed one when everyone else was attacked. This is a very clever idea and one that made complete sense for his character development. The second case is grabbed by Zema Ion, who I think will be "fired" next week. He has had so many issues in TNA and needs to be somewhere better where he can be handled and booked appropriately.

Austin Aries took his opponents down and hit a double 450 splash. Chris Sabin pulls him down from the ropes. Sabin sends Aries face first into the apron, then he whips him towards the steps but Aries reverses it and Sabin hits the steps. Samoa Joe is able to take control of Chavo but Hernandez slingshots him onto the turnbuckles, and Chavo takes case four down as Hernandez prevents Joe from getting to it first. With Chavo, the only logical thing he could do is get a Tag Team Championship match with Hernandez. The last case is grabbed by Gunner, who ends the show on top.

Overall, Ion will most likely get fired. I do think Gunner is a guy who has some talent that could propel him into a main event category. Ethan Carter III is safe from being fired as well. This match is a little complicated for the casual fan. I wonder who created this match.

Grade: B-

-Magnus and Jeff Hardy will compete in a Dixieland match for the TNA Heavyweight Championship next week. It will be a match that has the following: Both men will need to escape the cage to get to the championship title, which is hanging from a wire on the entrance way. It seems unusual, but this is what to expect from them. The name is a joke. Even Vince doesn't create a match with his name directly tied to it.  I am thrilled to see who comes out on top. This could be a shining moment for Magnus or it could be another step in the wrong direction. He has the right opponent in a match like this.

Grade: B+

-Bobby Roode and Kurt Angle continue their feud as well. These guys continue to be physical and aggressive each week. I can "feel" the hatred between them. It seems like it is getting more to a point of jealously.
