[pre-show digital media title/brain myers o dirty dango] [X title]kazarian o mike bailey(7/10 heavy metal rebels) [Career vs title shot Gauntlet]mickie james o mia yim(7/10 hardcore countries) [ko tag title]valkyrie/havoc o vxt(6/10 death doll decays) [Tag Title]Taven/Bennett o Machine Guns(8/10 o-g-marias) Raven(scott levy)hall of fame induction where after he says: "thank you for a 28 year long feud that ends tonight." he LAYS OUT dreamer with a raven effect! [Call Your Shot Cup Winner Bully Ray](8/10 n-w-rays) [KO Title]Jordynne Grace o Masha Slamovich(8/10 graceful knockouts) [World Title]Josh Alexander o Eddie Edwards(8/10 family is glory)
[Total Nonstop History]Was VERY surprised/impressed by frankie's win considering how many YEARS it's since last singles gold.(plus for a few reasons I stated in june how/why ace austin should've still been champ now) Commend james for her way of closing out her career against earning one last title shot. "HBIC" yim definately earned comeback nomination.(1st female pro in queen of the mountain & triple threat revolver) Valkyrie re-earned second ko tag gold.(although still somewhat unsure why she would need/want to join decay much less vice versa) What I said regarding somewhat unstable tag division in june recap applies equally to green/purrazzo. Tag title clash was overall show stealer between guns' ageless versatility against honor no more's peaking teamwork!(maria taking superkick was more impressive now that she's a parent) Raven's induction began by expected sentimentality then ended in spontaneously comedic fashion! Ray "returning" to brand had me confused: wouldn't you enjoy starting over in nwa especially where wifey's at? (taylor wilde/bully ray nutshot was comedy highlight)2X champ grace was in winning form while slamovich proved she'll be a very worthy future champion. Alexander(who's earned multiple pwi award noms)continues to be brand leader in every way while edwards paid extra high price for loss.(first family vs 3rd reign?) HAPPY 20TH!! Grade B+

Giselle Shaw o Deonna Purrazzo(5/10 chili-free divas) Gresham o Bailey(7/10 new foundations?) Kazarian o Kon(5/10 heavy metal mistakes) [KO Tag Title]Death Dollz o Hex(5/10 deadhead hexes) [Digital Media Title]Joe Hendry o Moose(6/10 dot combats) [Podcast Segment With David LaGreca, Bully Ray & Tommy Dreamer] [World Contender]Steve Maclin o Brian Myers, Heath Slater, PCO(6/10 bodybags) Bullet Club o Time Machine(7/10 golden guns) [World Title]Mickie James o Masha Slamovich(7/10 rodeo russians) [World Title]Josh Alexander o Richard Swann(8/10 champion friendships)
[Valentine Impact]Shaw shows steady star rise with career defining win.(also proving much more consistent cultural impact compared to fellow trans pro nyla rose) Only main mistake with bailey-gresham sleeper hit was gresham NOT challenging edwards.(if that loose end ever gets tied up I could see "speed foundation" as future champs) Santino Marella presenting kazarian was extra high compliment while design's kon may-or-may-not be another one dimensional heavyweight.(time will tell as it always does) Was mostly surprised at tag title ending which could've used a little more time.(where was father mitchell?) Between hendry's look, style, catchy song and understated acting he certainly has sleeper hit potential.(could teach semi-overrated/misused danhausen about less is more method) Moose VR game was comedy highlight! ONLY point I saw with podcast segment was adding new costumers for mr lagreca's show, but how much of that deal would benefit brand? Rising star "marine menace" maclin is ONE bout away from shocking everyone with a second world title.(besides pwr belt) "Inevitable Finesse's" austin & bey are on track to adding impact gold next to pwr gold by big win over double belt guns in potential show stealer. While I commend james in way she's handled "tap out" issue I don't understand why slamovich doesn't have gold after second shot.(does brand not believe she's not attractive or skilled enough to lead division??) Swann stepped up more than enough to remind fanbase why he deserved world & media straps.(could see him semi-surprising fans winning X gold to follow grace into grand slam club) Dedicate review to pro/booker/hall of famer Jerry Jarrett who passed valentines day and co-founded TNA. Grade B

So "Trinity" Fatu made her impact/indy debut this week. Found it embarrassingly comedic that show announcer calling her "the most decorated female wrestler in history" & "historic night for impact" when sasha/bailey/charlotte actually won MULTIPLE belts,pwi awards and co-headlined ppvs for years while she ONLY held 2 singles belts while never earning 1/2 the heat they got. Naturally I'm keeping wait-and-see attitude about how she does now that she's finally back from sidelines.
