Well, that was unexpected. If you watched the Jan. 17 edition of TNA Impact!, then you know what I mean.

Aside from the obligatory swerve that no one saw coming, we had a great tag match between Bad Influence and the team of TNA World Champ Jeff Hardy and James Storm. We had the furthering of the Kenny King and Christian York feud, which should have X-Division fans salivating. We had a Genesis rematch between Gail Kim and Velvet Sky, and we had the wedding of Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan. We also got a chance to see some of what the TNA and Bellator cross-marketing partnership will bring.

There were more segments than actual wrestling, which irked me. So I give this episode a C-. I would give it a lower grade, but I really like what they're doing with King, York, Daniels and Hardy. 

But let me just say this to TNA Impact!:

I like what you're doing business-wise. The Bellator deal looks like it should pay off, dropping to only four pay-per-views a year is great, and the King Mo special that you and Bellator aired Thursday was brilliant. Just don't let the business overshadow the creative. You're trying to compete with WWE.

Not mirror them.

Now, let's get into this week.
