Is there anyone at all who didn't see Garrett's trainer being Hogan? Come on, Hogan only knows about five moves and if he's ever done any moves Garrett's done in the past couple of months (even the really basic moves like a snapmare or arm drag) then I'll eat my hat...after going out to buy one
Garrett having a mystery trainer who Eric would be 'shocked' to see would have been an ideal opportunity to introduce a new worker to the roster (one who can actually wrestle) who has a historical connection to Eric. Missed opportunity for TNA there
Mark Haskins was ****ing lucky if all he got from his botched shooting star press was just a "minor concussion" as he claimed on Twitter. He looked like he got his arms out to take most of the impact just in time but it still looked like it'd be a really nasty head injury for him...and if Aries was aware of the botch then the stuff after to finish the match (kick to the face, brainbuster and last chancery, which all target the head/neck) was incredibly risky.
Hopefully Haskins is OK, and might appear a bit more frequently on TNA. I rather like him. Certainly a hell of a lot more than Zema Ion, who is about as crap and irritating as Robbie E. Considering Ion botched the 450 splash and a handful of other moves in his first Impact match in the Destination X qualifier back in June I was surprised they stuck with him.
Was also funny with the fans cheering for the heels in half the matches. But I was kinda hoping to hear a "Joe is gonna kill you" chant, which I haven't heard in years
And a Star Wars-themed episode coming up this week? What the hell?
I suppose it's a perfect opportunity for a specialised hardcore match (light-tube match or kendo sticks only, for a 'lightsaber' battle?) or something, but...yeah...this week sounds 'interesting', to say the least
