ODB vs. Brooke vs. Velvet Sky was an okay match, but once again we get interference from Gail Kim. Again, the depth of the division must change immediately for it to rise in stock, but Kim did have an interesting promo at the end of her attacks on the participants. It is intriguing to see where this goes, as far as her issuing an open challenge to someone outside the company. If I had a choice, it would be Awesome Kong—the same person who helped her put the Knockouts division on the map in the first place. Moreover, it would make for a great face-off with Lei'D Tapa, which could set up a stipulation that if Kong could get past Tapa, she would have a title shot.
The Aces and Eights/Ken Anderson segment looked hopeful, but fell a bit flat. The only hope from this is that Ken Anderson will have a match with Bully Ray, in which the group must disband if he wins. Aces and Eights are done, and have been irrelevant for quite some time. I understand the reasoning for keeping them around a bit longer, but this angle has to be it for them. They have already overstayed their welcome. On a side note, I was disappointed that I did not see a Kata Hijime on Bully Ray.
I won. Again x5 #IMPACTLive— ecIII (@EthanCarterTNA) November 8, 2013
The Kurt Angle/Bobby Roode feud is forming very well. They both are exhibiting a great deal of passion, making it more intense and real. If this is a prelude to both reaching the tournament finals, it will be treat to see, as well as the continued feud for the title afterwards.
Jeff Hardy vs. Chris Sabin was a fantastic match, and a good way to start off the title tournament. The bout had some great spots, hard-hitting moments, and no one dominated throughout the match. I am still not a fan of Sabin being in the main event yet, but moments like these help. Now, Sabin should use this momentum to bring better exposure to the X Division, which has been fairly quiet as of late.
