The New England Patriots are going to the SuperBowl for the 5th time in 11 years after defeating the Baltimore Ravens 23 – 20 in a very close, nail-biting game. The Patriots are my hometown team so I’m fucking excited about this. I’m already planning my SuperBowl party and it’s going to be fucking awesome. In New England we treat such an event as a National Holiday. I’m rooting for the AFC Champions to win the Lombardi Trophy this year just so I could go act a fool at their victory parade. It’s great to be a Boston sports fan. Our teams are the fucking best. 7 Championships in 10 years, who the fuck can argue with that? No one. So yeah, with that being said, I have taken this opportunity to post a bunch of pictures of Impact Wrestling Knockout Velvet Sky proudly rocking her Patriots gear. The SuperBowl will take place on February 5th. Are you excited like me or are you one of those people who can give a fuck less about the NFL?

The Man With The “Impact” by Jack Jorgenson
Edited by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
On June 27, 2011 CM Punk sat Indian style atop the ramp at the end of Raw and delivered what would be remembered as the best mic work since the now infamous Austin 3:16 shoot. Punk shot on anyone and everyone he could without holding any punches until his mic was abruptly cut and he was forced to cease on his tirade. For true wrestling fans it was a moment we’ll never forget. Much was said in that promo, but there was one line in there that resonated with me the most and that phrase was “Yeah, that’s right, I’m a Paul Heyman guy”! And Punk is. When Punk was finally called up to the main roster, Heyman was more or less Phil Brooks’ only supporter. He saw the burning desire in Punk to become what he did in 2011, and that’s the best wrestler on the planet and the new face of the WWE. This to me was further proof that Paul Heyman can still make a huge impact in this industry, especially with the wealth of young talent in the wrestling world today but Heyman’s impact (pun HIGHLY intended) should be felt not in Stamford Connecticut, but in Orlando Florida. That’s right folks I’m bringing up the issue of Impact Wrestling eventually becoming viable and a possible threat to the evil empire that is World Wrestling Entertainment. Read more…
TNA Fantasy by Ricky Jamison

Remember how we all used to play Smackdown vs. Raw and the best part about it (for any wrestling game actually) was GM Mode. Oh come on, don’t tell me I was the only person out there booking The Rock vs. Shawn Michaels for the Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania; or was spending forever trying to get a five-star match out of a created character? Anyways, I mention this because I notice how everyone on the internet always says what they would do for WWE and how they would build this guy up or rebuild this division, but I never see anything creative for TNA Impact except “this show sucks” or “I can’t wait for it to fail already.” So, I decided to do what many others won’t; I’m going to write a fantasy column that in truth will probably be better than the actual product. So welcome to TNA Fantasy: Where Wrestling Really Counts and We Really Let the Pigeons Loose. Read more…
THE IMPACT PLAYER: My Thoughts On Impact Wrestling 1/5/12
by THE IMPACT PLAYER Also Known As THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
Impact Wrestling is a good alternative to the WWE, but if you listen to the haters online, Impact Wrestling is nothing more than a punchline with everything that is wrong with the wrestling industry today. The hate towards the company brainwashes impressionable fans that have never heard of the company, but go out of their way to put the product down in some sort of blind allegiance to the WWE. All this ends up doing is turning off any potential fans Impact Wrestling could have gained if everybody wasn’t being so damn WWE biased. With that being said, I would like to welcome you to THE IMPACT PLAYER, where I will give you my thoughts on this week’s episode of Impact Wrestling. Read more…
In a company as inconsistent as Impact Wrestling, Sting proved to be the most consistent performer of the year. Sting’s 2011 kicked off with rumors of him debuting in the WWE on 2/21/11 to face The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 27. As we all know, those rumors were false as Sting continued to defy the McMahon wrestling empire by resigning with TNA (Impact Wrestling). Upon his arrival, Sting captured the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which he won twice in 2011. Sting dominated the competition in the first half of 2011 as he defeated the likes of Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson and RVD. After losing the title the first time, Sting snapped and started acting deranged.
His character found new life as an insane Heath Ledger as Joker type personality. He recaptured the TNA Heavyweight Championship and not only did he defend it, he tried to take on Impact Wrestling’s main heel stable, Immortal, on his own. Sting wanted to strip Immortal of their control of the company and would spend the majority of the year trying to get Hogan to agree to a match with him. After Sting lost his championship to Kurt Angle he began to focus more of his attention on restoring the Impact Wrestling brand. He finally got his wish when he wrestled Hulk Hogan at Bound For Glory, turning Hogan face in the process. Not only did he bring out the “real” Hulk Hogan, he also won back control of the company which allowed Dixie Carter to reclaim what was rightfully hers. Read more…
Worst Match Of The Year: Jeff Hardy vs Sting For The TNA World Heavyweight Championship At The Victory Road PPV
There was no competition for this category, the worst match of the year by a landslide was Jeff Hardy vs Sting at the TNA Victory Road PPV. This match was an embarrassment. Shit like this is the reason people love ripping TNA apart in the IWC. TNA should have called an audible before letting this match go on the air as scheduled. You see, Jeff Hardy must have smoked a little too much weed, sniffed and extra line of coke, or got shit-faced at a local bar, but he was clearly in no shape to compete. When he made his way out to the ring, he was wobbling from side to side, when he tried to enter the ring, he almost fell off the ring steps. TNA management should have stopped him from entering the Impact Zone in that state of mind. Before this match, RVD and Anderson wrestled to a no contest in a Number One Contender Match. TNA could have easily taken Jeff off the card via backstage shenanigans and made the match a Triple Threat for the title between RVD, Anderson and Sting. All they had to do was say since nobody won the last match, both competitors earned the shot at the title in the main event of the PPV since Hardy was in no shape to compete. Instead, TNA went on with the match.
To make matters worse, Eric Bishoff came out and made the match a No Disqualification Match. You can see him give messages to both Sting and Hardy off the mic, so it’s clear that he informed them of what was going to happen next, but isn’t that why referees have ear pieces? Any information about the match could have been relayed to the ref who then would have given both competitors the information needed to continue. When the bell actually rang, Hardy acted unprofessional and instead of doing the job, he teased the crowd with his shirt for about a minute. A visibly upset Sting locked up with Hardy, hit him a few times, then dropped his ass with the Scorpion Deathdrop for the win. I included the match after the jump and you can clearly see that Hardy tried his best to kick out, but Sting had him locked tight. I kinda felt bad for Sting because he just came back to TNA after turning down a very lucrative deal with the WWE just so he could deal with such bullshit. The actual match must have lasted less than a minute. If I ordered this PPV there would have been hell to pay because I would have personally flown to Florida and dropkicked Dixie Carter in the face.
So Jeff Hardy, how do you feel about your Victory Road Match against Sting? Read more…
An Impact Wrestling Roster Evaluation: Part 2 by Shaman’s Harvest
Edited by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™
The other half of the Impact Wrestling roster fucking sucks. Every woman that works there is either retarded or a whore (or just retarded whores), and every man that works there either can’t find a real job or can’t support their crack habits on welfare checks and food stamps alone because they lost all the money they made in WWE on lottery tickets or divorce payments. They all get Super F’s and I wish the Impact Zone would get struck by lightning and burn to the ground. Here’s to hoping they get canceled soon.
