Wait, I thought Mike and Maria signed a new deal?

Last I heard is that Maria is leaving wrestling to finish up school, while Bennett will stick around.

I don't even know who would bother signing Bennett now, given that his wife's rear end is the most interesting thing about him.

Who are even the tag teams left? Didn't they already break up every semi-relevant team?

I can't decide if Abyss is Dime Store Mankind or Dime Store Kane

I could see Dutch Mantell making a push for Swagger, but who knows if TNA can afford him. Apparently he left WWE because contract talks broke down.

Alberto wins the title, no-shows a taping every time they ask him to drop it, retires as the final TNA champion.

1000% chance Jarrett would've made her say "me love you long time" on TV

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I'm kind of surprised. This was probably the company's last chance to get a legitimate fresh start, scrub away bad memories, and actually move forward as a real grown-up wrestling promotion.

Instead they bring back all the old hacks who tanked the company the last time, rehash the same tired "we're not WWE" talking points that just remind people how low-rent they really are, do a loving announcer feud that buries the actual in-ring wrestling, and put the belt on a WWE washout in literally his first night. Jesus take the wheel.

Who the hell will watch after this? Especially now that the Hardys are gone? Not since late-era WCW have I seen a more disastrous attempt at a "reset."

Smashing Pumpkins songs are really good for like the first 30 seconds. Then Billy Corgan opens his stupid loving mouth and I mentally tune out.

So how long before Jarrett books himself into another vanity title reign? My money's on 3 months.
