Dixie Carter Introduced Her New Stable
Hearing Dixie's entrance theme kick off a show I had high hopes for wasn't exactly the best way to kick off the night, but at least the segment served a purpose. It explained why Rycklon (Big Zeke) and Snitsky are in TNA and why they're aligned with the Carters, even if no one in attendance cared. Nothing against Rycklon or Snitsky, but they're not big enough stars to make an impact (no pun intended). At least Ethan Carter III cut a good promo on Bully Ray and company. I could have done without the constant ECW mentions, but here's hoping it's only being down when they're in New York where there's a big market for it.
TNA World Tag Team Champions The Wolves def. The Hardys
Wow! I had forgotten what tag team wrestling was all about until seeing this match. Seriously, this was off-the-charts awesome. This was seen as a dream match in the eyes of fans and it definitely delivered on all cylinders. The action was extremely entertaining and the live crowd was receptive to all the suspenseful near-falls. The Hardys put The Wolves over in a big way and it was cool to see the two teams shake hands after the bout. My only complaint would be that it should have gotten more time, but that's a minor gripe as they more than made the most of the 10 minutes they were given.
