deimos_masque Posted November 20, 2006 Share Posted November 20, 2006 TNA Genesis was in the books and what a mixed bag of nuts it was. The PPV was being both praised and ridiculed for various reasons, some of which were very valid concerns. In the Pre-Show Eric Young defeated Robert Rhoode with his foots on the ropes for leverage after the match was restarted by popular request of the fans with Rhoode teasing a breakup with his manager, Miss Brooks. The Voodoo Kin Mafia defeated Raven’s Movement which lead to a show of direction for both teams and a new look for Raven. The Naturals defeated the thrown together team of Dutt and Lethal to continue their build up. Christopher Daniels retained the X Division Title against Chris Sabin but Sabin got the last word in attacking after Jerry Lynn forced a handshake. Nash yelled at his golden boys Austin Starr and Alex Shelley after they lost to the mismatched team of Ron Killings and Lance Hoyt. Christian Cage proved to be able to defeat the “Phenomenal” AJ Styles afterwhich Rhino buried the hatchet between the to wrestlers and kept Daniels and Styles from “going down the same road” as him and Christian. LAX defeated AMW after some shenanigans only to be stripped of the NWA Tag Team Titles afterwards by Jim Cornette for “un-American” acts. The dual main events of the night proved to be the most surprising. Abyss defeated Sting by DQ to become the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion, a stipulation that many had forgotten still existed in TNA. Finally, the “Olympic Hero” Kurt Angle ended Samoa Joe’s undefeated streak by making him tap to the ankle lock. On paper everything seemed solid, in execution it came of a bit unusual. Some of it was gold, and a lot of it seemed unfocused or just wasteful. To many the direct TNA had taken after Bound For Glory and Vince Russo’s addition to the booking team seemed chaotic at best and nonsensical at worse. It was time for an analytical look at where TNA intended to go and what they were going to do. Panda Energy took their primary corporate data analyst, Jason Woods, who also happened to be a wrestling fan, and put him on the creative team. His job, assist Dixie Carter in determining business decisions as well as plan for the long term. While not the only force behind creative he would provide a buffer between the ideas of Jeff Jarret and Vince Russo and present the facts as clearly as possible to Dixie Carter for the final approvals. He realized he had a tough road ahead of him; he was a corporate addition to TNA and was worried on what exactly "da boys" would think of him. Not only that but Jeff Jarret and Vince Russo both have great reputations for huge egos. Heck, Jarret's might even be deserved considering the amount of times he's held the World Title in TNA, a company he is part owner in. Vince Russo's finding God could have done much to humble him though, only time would tell. And with such egos floating around he knew he was in for something of a big challenge. ===== ((Okay I'm not sure how well this is going to go, it's my first Dynasty attempt in a very long time... like TEW 04 long-time. My goal is to update it once a week the Wednesday before the actual TNA show since I'm running it in the same time period. During the week I'll be putting up a "diary" of sorts to go over what exactly this new addition to the Booking Team goes through each week.))
