TRIU IMPACT Wrestling Review (8/1/13)…

                                                                                                                                This week’s IMPACT Wrestling was another episode that saw a bunch of good to great matches that carried on the storylines that are the major ones in TNA right now. In the opening match Roode gets his 1st win and 7pts in the BFG series. Could this be the start of a roll for Roode??? But one thing that was wrong about this episode is the TNA would have been better off putting the Champ vs. Champ matchup for the main event and give us the Aries vs. Styles match in the 3 spot. The finally with the MEM and the Aces n 8’s was ok put kind of anti climactic. The reveal of Tito Ortiz for no reason other than to promote his match against Rampage Jackson on Bellator 62 or 63 and just seemed like a waste of time to me time that could have been used with another match…
