That Angle Show – 6/12/08Leave a Comment
I love it when we get decent world title matches on free TV (though, technically, since I’m paying $105 a month for cable, is it really free?). To be honest, Kaz vs. Samoa Joe was a pretty solid match. Unfortunately for them, they took a back seat to the continuing saga of Kurt and Karen Angle. It used to be funny when I’d type “Hey look, it’s Kurt Angle” on the message boards at World Wrestling Insanity every time he’d be on screen. Hell, at least he was champion back then. Now that Samoa Joe is champion, after beating Kurt Angle for the title, mind you, Joe should be the centerpiece of the program, not curtain jerking while defending his TNA World Title. Hell, the TNA title match took a backseat to LAX vs. James Storm and Robert Roode for the TNA Tag Titles last night. It’s a sad state of affairs to think that the lasting impression from last night’s program isn’t going to be Joe holding up his championship after a hard fought title defense, but instead, the image of Karen Angle, lying in pain on the mat after an attack by Awesome Kong.
Ranting and raving about the rest of the show, after the jump.
