    EFYBO are the new Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions.

    The former champions Matt & Jeff Hardy just debuted in ROH, and beat the Young Bucks for the ROH Tag Team Championship. Bully Ray (Bubba Ray Dudley) also just debuted there after the main event, so that is the reason he turned down TNA.

    Just watched The Final Deletion again - still f**king brilliant!



    Also, Adam Thornstowe of Reno Scum is out for a while, if anyone cares...

    Bit of movement on the roster. Crazy Steve has left, and in comes Matt Sydal.

    With the GFW & Impact merger, Christina Von Eerie now is part of the roster. Also I guess the GFW Tag Titles are now vacant, since the Bollywood Boyz are with WWE now. And finally, add Scott Steiner as returning to the company as part of Josh Matthews' group.

    Not sure where to put this, but this thread is probably the most appropriate due to the tie in between both parties.

    Billy Corgan just bought the NWA...

    The Borash & Abyss overacting is a bit much, but god I miss these Scott Steiner promos!

    @Big Pete has some work to do. Time to merge this thread with the GFW one, but leave the GFW one running. Because:

    GFW have suspended Alberto El Patron until his domestic violence order is resolved.

    GFW have made a good pick up in signing OI4K, which should give LAX some good veteran talent to wrestle against.

    Well, hell just froze over.

    Jim Cornette just returned to GFW Impact Wrestling...

    Cornette in Impact Wrestling is already paying dividends, the product in an on screen level already looks more serious & legitimate. If they utilise him to pick his brain & pass on suggestions creatively to Dirty Dutch Mantel, then GFW will be in a position to start a serious rebuild of the company.

    Picking up John Morrison (aka Johnny Impact) is a big plus for them too, gives them genuine star power without the basket case that is Alberto El Patron.

    Rosemary picked up an arm injury at AAA's Triplemania event yesterday, after Sexy Star slapped on a legit armbar during the finish. Apparently Star and one of the other luchadoras (Lady Shani) got into a shoot during the match, which ended up carrying across to the finish.

    If you go on Twitter today and see wrestlers posting about injuries in matches, this is why.

    Eddie Edwards is the new GHC Champion, becoming the first gaijin to win the championship.

    Truth be told, I haven't caught an episode of GFW since Dixie was removed from power. I have all the episodes from the new tapings lined up but I just never got around to them. The transition was really rough, with GFW addressing all the elephants in the room and the way they wrote the Hardys off really rubbed me up the wrong way.

    But I have been hearing bits and pieces and it seems like the product has bounced back nicely. Slammiversary sounded like a really good show top to bottom and the way they've been booking since the El Patron fiasco sounds promising.

    Impact have a similar problem to what they have in the past: the in ring product is good but some of the storylines are head scratchers.

    The X Division is a tale of two groups, the old guard who wrestle in the traditional X Division style and the new guys who wrestle the current faster Indy style (Low Ki leaving won't help that either). There is a lot of talent in this division, particularly with the NOAH wrestlers and the returning Petey Williams, but there doesn't seem to be a coherent storyline for anyone.

    The Tag Team & Womens divisions have solid storylines, but lack talent. LAX are that far ahead of the rest of the tag teams it isn't funny, OI4K are still working out how to wrestle for TV, VOW are seemingly DOA, and thankfully Reno Scum are still off TV. For the women, the current storyline is Gail Kim's last run at the title before her retirement, but there just isn't enough talent for her to work with before facing Sienna, even with Taya Valkarye to debut next week.

    The current Heavyweight storylines are actually quite entertaining, with GFW vs America's Top Team and Eli Drake vs Jim Cornette being the standouts. Getting Johnny Impact/Mundo/Nitro/Morrison into the picture is a big gain.

    Overall though, things are looking more positive for the company storyline wise than probably since the Bischoff/Hogan era.

    Jeff Jarrett has been given leave for "personal reasons", yet will still be available as a consultant.

    Something's fishy there...

    Apparently it is all about Jarrett's increasingly erratic behaviour.

    So, the GFW name has been dropped, as apparently all the legal paperwork required to transfer ownership of the name to Anthem Media from Jeff Jarrett was never completed. It is back to Impact Wrestling going forward.

    Also, Jim Cornette is already done with the company. This time it is amicable, as with the Bound for Glory PPV and subsequent TV tapings going forward to be based in Canada, Cornette isn't available as due to arrests for attacking unruly fans from his time as a manager in the 80's.
