Why did he hit him??
Anybody check out TNA's Bound for Glory last night? Another very good ppv put on by TNA although I was kind of turned off by all the title changes (especially the Tag title, Chavo and Hernandez...ugh).
The Storm/Roode street fight was crazy and the main event was outstanding as well.
My biggest gripe was the tag titles. Daniels and Kaz were great as champs and should have held the titles until a legit contender surfaced. But no, instead they put the straps on a WWE mid carder living off of his uncle's coat tails paired with a green brute who's move set consists of various shoulder blocks and a suicide dive. I wouldn't even have minded it as much if AJ and Angle had won.
I also don't really get the angle of having Devon as part of Aces & 8's but I'm interested to see where it goes.
I've been reading alot of hate for Hardy as the WHC. Seems a lot of people view him as the TNA version of John Cena. I personally don't mind Hardy all that much and I certainly don't blame TNA for putting the belt on him. He probably generates more $ for them than anyone else on the roster.
Overall though, I agree with you that this was the best TNA event of the year. I don't watch WWE PPVs so I can't really compare it to anything they have done.
Whoever in WWE said "Lets put this guy from India, the Scottish guy and the Redneck together and they'll all play air guitar" should be fired. Switch over from MNF for a few 30 min ago and see that? Thanks Jerks.
Did anybody see the kick that Kingston landed on Miz's face? There was nothing "fake" about it. Miz looked genuinely ****ed up. If anybody can post a gif it would be much appreciated.

I saw something on a wrestling board that got me thinking. In the territory days, wrestlers were legit tough guys (for the most part). Bill Watts had two standing rules for his wrestlers:
1. If someone challenges you to a fight in a bar, and you don't fight him, you are fired.
2. If you lose the fight, you are fired.
Outside of Lesnar and maybe The Undertaker (neither of whom are really wrestlers at this point), who on the current roster could actually get in a fight with - say - two bikers and win? Hell, who on the current roster could fight 69-year-old Harley Race and win? I mean, I guess the physical freaks like Big Show could hold their own but anyone else?
Where have you gone, Dick Murdoch?
On another note, there are only two storylines the WWE is capable of writing right now:
1. Authority figure versus wrestler, and
2. Love triangle
Notice that neither of these is "Wrestler wants to win a title."

It reminds me of something my mom said during her last years of teaching in high school. She said that in her early days, you would walk into a class of juniors and seniors and see "men" sitting at the desks. In her last years, they all looked like little boys. Everyone in the WWE looks like a little boy playing pretend to me now.
But yeah, they aren't putting that much emphasis on titles. Unfortunately, the only way they can do that right now is if they put a big name on there.
TNA got it right when they gave Samoa Joe the TV Title. They aren't letting him talk much about it, but they are in a good position by giving it too him.
WWE needs to have John Cena, Orton, or another big face win the smaller titles if they want to make those titles and the Big titles feel important.
Gone, but not forgotten... RIP RP
They have way too many titles. Cut them down to a manageable number and make the wrestlers seem somewhat interested in winning them. That's all it would take. It's the easiest thing to do.
Remember when Shawn Michales was chasing his "childhood dream" of winning the title? It's the simplest thing to book in the world. Have Wrestler A stand in the ring and say, "I want to be world champion because that will prove that I am the best in the world." And then have him walk out of the ring.
