That may have been match of the night. It's going to be tough for Tanahashi and Nakamura to top that.

Speaking of those two, the show's final match is Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Shinsuke Nakamura for the IWGP Intercontinental Title

Opener was fun, tag match was solid, Conway/Kojima was fine, Nagata & Sakuraba vs Gracies was awful, Muta/Yano vs Benjamin/Suzuki was a disappointment, Fale/Makabe was fine, Goto/Shibata was good, Devitt/Ibushi was really good, Naito/Okada was fantastic, and Nakamura/Tanahashi was really good.

I thought Muta/Yano vs Benjamin/Suzuki was an alright match and the match with the Gracies was what I expected it to be overall. It was the card's celebrity guest match. Compare this with other celebrity matches (particularly some of the WCW celebrity matches -- Jay Leno anyone), and it's comes off as being acceptable for what it was. The ending was WTF, but I suspect there was some politics involving Sakuraba's history with the Gracies going on there. I also though Goto/Shibata nearly stole the show. These would be my only disagreements with your assessments though

You're too polite, Stephen. It was horrible. Are you on Twitter?

Also, I don't think Devitt's done and in fact I suspect he moves up to have the FEUD OF AGES~! with Tanahashi over the IC belt.

from PWInsider

In December 2013, TNA taped six episodes of Impact Wrestling from Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. At the time, the company sent out a press release about the Impact Zone homecoming, claiming that there were plans to launch a training facility and use the tools available at the Universal sound stage as a hub for #IMPACT365.

Next week, the final pre-recorded episode of Impact Wrestling will air on Spike TV followed by a live Genesis special on January 16th. Following the Genesis special, TNA will tape several more episodes in Huntsville, AL before leaving for the annual UK Tour, where at least two, but likely four episodes of Impact are scheduled.

At this point, once TNA returns from the UK Tour they will have Impact recorded through February with a string of live events ending on February 23rd. This is the last date currently booked for any TNA events, and so far a destination has not been determined for future episodes. According to reports, they could not secure the Impact Zone past their December booking, so it remains to be seen where television will be taped starting in March. Expect a press release on the issue from TNA soon.

I saw the matches differently than you did. I wouldn't say that's a matter of politeness.

No, I'm not on Twitter. I'm assuming from your next post that you're asking due to to Prince Devitt's Twitter account, which I've heard from people is interesting to read.

I hope you're right. I'd prefer for him to stay in New Japan as they going to do a lot more with him than I can see the Fed doing with him.
