I hope everyone enjoyed their UFC fix and you are ready for some wrestling. AJ Styles is in action and that’s the only thing I should need to say to get you to watch TNA on Spike.

“This is TNA, The New Face Of Professional Wrestling”

A very good opening video by the TNA Production guys. They made sure to showcase AJ Styles first followed by the Naturals and Jarrett.

Bottom Line: Tonight felt special to me. It felt like a big night and it was for TNA. They did everything they needed for a Pilot Episode. They introduced the X Division with Sabin/Petey/Shelley. They let Petey use the Destroyer. They showed the title change and how AMW turned. They introduced a new heel stable. They built the Monsters Ball Match. They introduced Team 3-D to TNA and re-introduced Kevin Nash. AJ Styles kicked off the show with a good match. Everything worked for TNA tonight, lets just hope it all continues.
