Bram def. Abyss in a Stairway to Janice Match
Similar to their Monster's Ball match, this was a garbage match with several sweet spots and both guys putting forth a strong effort. They captured the crowd's attention and both Bram and Abyss took brutal beatings. I like the move to have Bram going over for a second time because it gives him credibility as a singles competitor. How long before Abyss gets his win back? Personally, I have no desire to see this feud continue. I wasn't a fan of this match concept, but they made the most of it. It's been four years since "Janice" was first introduced to TNA TV. How it's still around today is a mystery to me.
Ethan Carter III Attacked Rhyno
Believe it or not, EC3's promos have become one of the highlights of TNA programming in recent weeks. This wasn't his strongest promo to date, but he's still a work in progress and I'm glad to see him improving at a rapid pace. It made sense from a storyline standpoint for EC3 to blame Rhyno for Dixie Carter going through a table since he was the one pinned in that multi-man tag team match two weeks ago, but the attack on Rhyno was weak. Rhyno is much bigger physically than EC3, so he should have been able to dispose of him with ease instead of getting his ass handed to him. I'm fine with Rhyno as a babyface, but it seems like a step down for EC3 who has feuded with Sting, Kurt Angle and Bully Ray since the start of the year.
