Impact Wrestling 3/8/19

The Highs and Lows of Impact Wrestling, 3/8/19 episode.

 

What’s up everybody, I’m Jay and welcome to the first DiscussPW edition of Highs and Lows!

It’s an obvious ripoff of “Ups and Downs”, other “Highs and Lows”, and whatever else. Except that when I’m doing these, I’m actually….whatever let’s just get started with the LOWS.

LOW- More Reno Scum vs Fallah & KM 

This was a tough one because I love Fallah, I think KM is solid and Reno Scum are a good team. I just don’t really care too much about this feud, esp with everything else that’s going on.

LOW- The Dark War

First off, I saw a poll from Impact’s Twitter and I’m def in the minority on this one. I thought it was fine, I’m not hating on it, I was just expecting more or something different. Seeing Rosemary back in the ring was awesome,  I think a final Dark Realm segment would have helped, but what the hell do I know.  I thought the lighting was cool and just different, but the match didn’t feel as big as I thought it should have. Jordynne seemed a bit out of place in this also but Rosemary/Allie clearly isn’t over and I’m really excited to see that feud.

And that’s it for the LOWS this week, now it’s time for a special section called, I’m Not Sure.

First off, I’m Not Sure if this will be a weekly thing, or if I’ll even do another of these. But this will be for matches and segments I’m just not sure about.

I’m Not Sure- New Reporter, Rolando Melendez

So I saw a bunch of complaints about this character but I enjoyed him. I’m just not sure if he’s playing a “bad reporter” or he’s just not really good at his job? For me it doesn’t really matter as long as I’m entertained. But I’m still sticking this in the “I’m Not Sure” section, cause l’m just not sure about Rolando yet.

Now to the HIGHS

High- Disco Inferno?!

Yup, you read that right. It’s 2019, Disco recently returned to Impact in a mostly backstage role, and is KILLING IT! From his hysterical backstage videos, this week there was a great AEW joke, among others. To his women’s wrestling “feud”, where if you missed it, he talked some trash about women’s wrestling and dirtsheets jumped on him and Impact. But oh look, it was all to set up his heel character and a feud with the Smokeshow…a lot of “journalists” must feel really stupid right now.

High- Rich Swann vs Ethan Page

Another good-great opening match, this week it was X Division Champion, Rich Swann vs Ethan Page. It’s quietly become a thing now where almost every single week, the show starts off with a match that is good to great. Rich Swann has quickly become one of my favorite wrestlers to watch and I think he’s incredibly underrated.

I was considering putting Page on the “Lows” because of his losing streak. But with the way Impact has been handling it’s characters, I have to believe it’s leading to something. Also Rich Swann fake joining oVe was great, even tho I was kind of hoping he’d actually join for a bit.

High- Alisha/Eddie/Eli vs Desi Hit Squad

I thought this segment was incredible. It was perfect for the DHS, Alisha did a great job setting up and they looked like huge heels for the first time, IMO. I’d love to see more of Rohit on the mic because he’s very good, check out his Indy stuff if you need more proof. Then Eli coming down to save Eddie was a nice surprise, I was hoping they’d keep those two together for a while cause they have great chemistry.

High- Ace Austin Impact Debut

It was a short match and I thought Atlas got in a bit too much offense. But still a good debut for Ace, I think he’s incredible and can’t wait to see more of him.

High- Rascalz Segment

This is a “Highs” and Lows article, so no explanation needed.

High- Lucha Bros vs Rascalz (Xavier & Wentz)

Not much to say about this one, the Lucha Bros are one of the best teams in the world, maybe THE best. And the Rascalz are quickly moving up that list, no matter which two are in the match. They also have what I think is the best gimmick in all of wrestling today, but I’m clearly biased…in a few diff ways on that one. But the match was an absolute blast, def check it out if you haven’t.

And that’s it for Highs and Lows, maybe it’ll be back #TBD
