Eric Young/Joseph Park/ODB vs. Bro Mans/Gail Kim was a good moment of humor for the show. The Bro Mans are being properly used, that being comic relief heels who are not very meaningful outside of putting other teams over. TNA could attempt to make them a credible team and feud with Storm and Gunner. However, the division is not missing anything by that not happening. On the other hand, Park, Young and ODB continue to be popular talent for the company.
We won! We won! Wow what a great feeling. Me and @ShowtimeEY are really starting to gel as a team. What a great friend and scientist!— Joseph Park (@JOSEPHPARK_esq) September 27, 2013
Manik vs. Chris Sabin was a good match, and was the right call. Even with its underexposure, Manik has done a fair job continuing to make the X Division relevant. TJ Perkins is liked by the fans, and his in-ring ability is very unique. Sabin continues to hone his craft as a heel, and Aries making the save could set up a potential feud with Sabin. If nothing comes out of Aries/King, Aries/Sabin would also be a sufficient feud to watch.
Interestingly, Manik was not satisfied with his performance:
Honesty with ones self is important to every athlete. Tonight I was a D+ performer. I'm capable of much better.— TJ Perkins/MANIK (@MegaTJP) September 27, 2013
The final segment with Hulk Hogan, A.J. Styles and Dixie Carter was promising. Again, Carter is not an expert in being a heel, but at least she is improving from week to week. The proposal that Dixie Carter offered Hulk Hogan is a good sign that Hogan may not be with the company much longer. Although he did not substantially make a difference during his TNA tenure, at least he was a big name that helped the legitimacy of the company from an international standpoint. Say what you want, but Hogan will always be synonymous with pro wrestling, and the sponsors tend to agree.
