Rize: Impact Wrestling is better than RAW and SmackDown right now. Despite the questionable booking methods, Impact has interested me more than any brand from the WWE. They’re keeping their product fresh by booking this BFG tournament and attempting to rebuild the X-Division.
I've witnessed Austin Aries, Low Ki, and even AJ Styles planning their returns to the Division at Destination X. That and the revival of the six sided ring is displaying why I fell in love with TNA in the first place.
Charlie Groenewegen: IMPACT Wrestling hands down, no questions asked. You’ll know why after watching a few weeks of it.The Destination X Tournament is pure gold and produced awesome matches. We’ve seen such talent such as Austin Aries, Low Ki, Jimmy Yang, Jimmy Rave, Zema Ion, Dakota Darsow, Kid Kash and the final match is next week.IMPACT is more ‘bang for your buck’ so-to-speak. On the latest edition of IMPACT, Sting just named the July 14th edition of IMPACT the “Mid-Summer Nightmare.” Sounds good, right?
What makes it so special you ask? A World title match, Knockouts title match, Destination X fallout and more. It is basically this years version of last years Whole F*N Show. It is a PPV quality show on free TV. The Bound for Glory Series is one of the smartest concepts in years; from WWE or TNA. I love it. Wins and losses haven’t matter as much as they do now.
IMPACT Wrestling is the place to be. Everything is perfect right now. You know why? Wrestling matters.
Message for all IMPACT haters: Don’t judge it until you try it.
Ryan Frye: What is the best show right now; Raw, SmackDown, or iMPACT Wrestling?
Despite the heat I may get for this, iMPACT has been the best show of the three TNA has done a great job with wrestling recently, proving that wrestling does once again matter. I’m loving the Bound For Glory series, as it is an innovative and creates very fresh matchups.
The X-Division tournament has also been great, because it has made for excellent three-way matches for three consecutive weeks. And who isn’t looking forward to Destination X?
I mean, if you aren’t, you’re just a WWE mark.
AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels?
Does anybody have a doubt how great that will be?
RVD vs. Jerry Lynn?
Once again, will be terrific.
The Sting/Hogan.Bischoff angle has been very entertaining, and it’s a great way to use the older stars in the company.
Why didn’t I pick Raw or SmackDown?
Raw, in my opinion, has been very dull. If you erase the CM Punk promo, what has stood out?
Yes, but TNA’s wrestling has been better, without the recycled stories.
As far as SmackDown, Randy Orton versus Christian is great, but the rest of the show is seriously lacking star power.
Ben Gartland: What is the best show right now; Raw, SmackDown, or iMPACT Wrestling?
At the moment, Smackdown is lacking serious main eventers. I mean, Orton and Christian is great, but that is the only they have. The rest of the show is lackluster. Now Raw has a boat-load of star power, but no really good story lines.
CM Punk is the only reason a lot of us will be tuning next Monday. Now Impact Wrestling is on it’s way up. The whole “Joker” Sting is brilliant and the focus on the X-Division is why it’s great right now. TNA has figured it out and are on their way up.
Hamster Fan: The best show for me right now is iMPACT Wrestling. It has really improved since the company began the Bound for Glory series. They have given 12 men a chance to show that they could be a number one contender. Now what other company does that? Don’t say WWE with the Royal Rumble or the MitB because we all know that some wrestlers have higher odds than others. But for this TNA series, everyone has equal odds to win. It is unpredictable.
Another reason that iMPACT Wrestling is good is because aside from the BFG series, it is consistent and puts on at least one match that should be rewatched over and over again. Most of these matches are from the X-Division but it doesn’t matter because iMPACT Wrestling still pushes their stars who can wrestle unlike RAW and Smackdown.
The only entertaining thing on RAW is Punk, the rest of the show is average at best. (See this week’s RAW for proof) Smackdown on the other hand has a good feud going on in Orton vs Christian but then the rest of the show performs poorly due to the deserving guys NOT getting pushed properly. iMPACT Wrestling, meanwhile, makes the most of what they have making it the best show right now.
