Hermie Sadler was a second-rate NASCAR driver. Impact/TNA/NWATNA/Global Force Wrestling/Global Gold is a second-rate rasslin company. It is a perfect match if you asked me.


Huh? The point is that NASCAR is a only popular in redneck 'Murica. He could be the greatest NASCARball player in the world, and no one outside of the USA would have a clue who he was. Clearly redneck Jeff Jarrett loves Sadler, since he was on the first TNA episode, and a few others after that. I guess Jarrett gave him a great deal on gold to get him to appear.
If Jimmie Johnson, Dale Jr., Danica, Kevin Harvick or Kyle Busch showed up, a large percentage of sports fans outside of American would know who they are or would have heard of them.

They wouldn't.  You have to be a serious motorsport petrolhead to have heard of any of them.  Indycar briefly had optics here when Mansell was in it, and when Franchitti kept bitchfucking the 500, but NASCAR is total obscurity.

Have any of you ever even heard of DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft/German Touring Car Championship) ? That's probably the popularity of NASCAR in every other country in the world. I'm not sure it ever gained traction anywhere. At least Monster Trucks had a decent run in the mid 90s, and I have no clue if NASCAR was exported at all back then. Oh Gravedigger, how I miss ye...

Your country's greatest export was Alex Wright. So, you don't count.

Ask Larry Matysick what brand of condoms Muchnick preferred. I guarantee you he's intimately familiar.


I heard they went bareback together

What I've seen on YouTube has been good. That announcer match was fun and better than it had any right to be thanks to them turning it into a Broken Hardys type of thing with appearances by Shark Boy and Father James Mitchell. Steiner yelling "run fatass" at Park. 

Paige was in the front row for Alberto's match wearing a luchador mask.

The branding is so confused.  They made no mention of it last night, and they just added the letters "GFW" in tiny font at the top of the Impact logo.  "Anthem" was already added to the bottom of the logo.  They seem to still be calling themselves "Impact" and making a distinction between Impact and GFW talent.  "TNA" is still written in huge letters across their title belt, and most people still call them that.  They have 15 names, 1 for each person who watches their show.

He was never in LAX, they helped him out of the ring when he was "practically unconscious." It was a poorly done cliffhanger.

The mayor of Orlando does some ring announcing. Horrible. Is there any way president Trump can deport Grado ? I can't stand him.

Why is Homicide not wrestling and he's being paid to just stand around?  He's probably one of the biggest names in the company (sad as that is) and he's a glorified second/henchman.  I still have no idea why I should care about Rodriguez and Sanchez, or whatever generic Hispanic names the other two are called.  They bring nothing to the table, I legit still don't know their names, and they're the ones wrestling every week.

Dude, half the people in that graphic don't work for GFW anymore.  P.J. Black (Lucha Underground) and Curt Hawkins (WWE) are also on there.
