TRIU IMPACT Wrestling Review (8/15/13)…

                                                                                                                                         This week’s IMPACT Wrestling was TNA’s 2nd attempt in as many months to have television PPV’s(The last being Destination X). I thought the last one went well! Now with that being said for every positive thing I can say about Destination X. I can say some very negative things about this one.  The two BFG series matches were pretty awesome but I was left feeling empty after the event and confused about the big twist ending with Tito Ortiz joining Aces n 8’s (Which by the way I think is horrible). But this is the IMPACT Wrestling we have today so was the in ring work good for this one?...Yeah it was but would it have been worth even paying $9.99 to watch?....No now onto the matches…
