Impact Wrestling on Destination America (March 20) Review

The main event was very good but just a step below great, a few more minutes and they might have gotten there. This was another very enjoyable show. I preferred last weeks, less pointless gimmick matches and it was better paced, but this was a good show. And so ends TNA’s shows from the UK. Last year when TNA went from solid UK shows (though they weren’t as good as this year’s shows), returned to Orlando and everything fell apart.
