Impact Wrestling Review: Sabin Fed Up, Carter Heels Up
The segment between Eric Young/Joseph Park and the Bro Mans was actually quite funny. Having Robbie E lose to both Young and Park consecutively was a good way to commence the feud between the tag teams, and they saved some dignity by attacking the team afterwards. However, Park saw blood, which caused him to briefly transform to Abyss.
It appears as if that is the closest thing we will get to Abyss for the foreseeable future, which many people aren't too pleased about. However, Park's character is refreshed with his alliance with EY, and it still has live to it.
Gunner vs. Hernandez was quite a lackluster match. Neither of them are increasing in stock concerning their interest, and the tag team division is very dismal. The only thing this match did was show how much Hernandez is being underutilized, which comes to no surprise. Hopefully we will see better feuds before the end of the year, but it is highly doubtful.
The closing segment between AJ Styles and Dixie Carter was actually much better than expected. The initial (dismantled) pipe bomb executed by Styles did not set a promising stage, but this "shoot" promo went much better. Dixie Carter coming out and playing a heel was a fresh change of character. You could definitely tell that she was uncomfortable playing that roll, but once the jitters subside in the upcoming weeks, we could actually see the overall interest of TNA significantly rise. Let's hope that our expectations do not end with disappointment leading to Bound for Glory.
Could TNA experience an upswing with Dixie Carter playing an on-screen heel? Sound off below.
