I was going to follow up Hawks column with a complete review of last nights Impact but I have decided that I just need to vent or get up on my soap box to complain what ever you prefer! Now not that Impact didn't have some great matches such as the main event of Kidd Kash, Lance Hoyt, and Raven VS. "The Redneck Tag Team" (Dustin Rhodes and AMW).
There was also a 3 man X-Division match with Sharkboy, "Primetime" Elix Skipper, and Chris Sabin was another incredible match. All three of these great athletes have got some killer moves! As much as I would like to go more into these matches I really need to talk about my least favorite part, if not the lamest part of the show David Young VS. NASCAR Jeff Hamond!
Now I know I stated last week that I thought this was going to be lame but lame didn't start to describe it!! David Young came to the ring with Michael Shane and Frankie Kazarian. Which was David's first mistake since you get nothing but trouble getting mixed up with those two! His second was agreeing to this stupid match!
NASCAR Jeff Hamond entered the ring with BG James! At least Jeff wore a shirt this week because a repeat of him shirtless isn't something we want to see again! There was cheating on both sides of this incredibly stupid match. They stated that David hasn't won a match in two years well with him not being able to win against Jeff maybe he needs to look into another profession!
Oh I think the part of the match that really made it go down as the lamest thing in pro wrestling. Was Jeff's finishing move! He totally ripped off Dusty's elbow drop but added his own spin to it first he put his hands in front of him like he was driving then made the same noise that kids make when they are playing with hot wheels circled him then did it! The whole time I'm sitting there going I hope this isn't really happening!!
I totally understand that NASCAR is huge in this area and at this time of the year with the Daytona 500 next week but this was a huge mistake! What would have been much better would have been to invite some NASCAR drivers to come to the show and sit them in the audience! Well I think you should give that some thought for next year! Lets just hope with BikeWeek around the corner they aren't going to have the wrestlers ride motorcycles to the ring or maybe I have an idea they can do a cage of death match with a couple of the X-Division wrestlers on motorcycles like they have at the circus!
