    Waiting for the haters. :)

    Anybody else see Hebner throw up the X signal at the end of this, I think Angle may have really been hurt, I know that X sign is normally a sign for legit injury

  3. Axel says:

    Thank you TNA for RUINING the one thing you had going for you. The chance to actually make your own big star, someone not named AJ Styl;es who gets lost in the shuffle half the time, or Samoa Joe who has become nothing compared to his past. A chance to outshine their big players and TNA screws it up like always.

  4. Criss Brian says:

    Can’t even fathom how bad that was to end a PPV!

  5. Kyle Christie says:

    I bet if Bobby had one you would be saying im glad he won but it was predictable.

  6. korey parker says:

    I’m no upset that they put Angle over…thats fine….but to end it like that after a five month push just feels empty….like he had all of this spirit going into it and lost like that….just lazy booking to me……again==putting over Angle is fine but give me something to it

  7. Travis says:

    WOW. REALLY TNA? I actually had faith that TNA could not possibly screw this one up…that they would not screw this one up. Axel said it all so I won’t bother. UNBELIEVABLE. I guess maybe Vince should have had Shawn job out his boyhood dream at Wrestlemania 12 cause clearly TNA knows something Vince doesn’t.

  8. Xern says:

    I, actually, am interested to see where this goes. While I know that the consensus was that Roode would walk out of BFG with the title (further exemplified by the vignettes with his family, etc. during the TV show), I am going to do the unpopular thing and actually give TNA/Impact a nod on this one as they threw a bit of a swerve with Angle keeping the title.
    Honestly, this was a pretty face-dominated PPV: Aries and Mexican America were the only other heels to walk away victorious in the very first two matches with faces winning every other match up to the main event, so honestly I wasn’t too surprised to see Angle walk away with this one. Again, conjecture can fly about as to whom should have gone over whom and I won’t dispute that, all I am saying is that after 5 or 6 consecutive face wins, I wasn’t too surprised to see Angle win.

  9. The XFL says:

    This is TNA’s Wrestlemania? ..Ouch. There really is no competition :/

  10. #AreYouSeriousBro says:

    I said don’t keep the title on a drunk like angle. I regret saying that because kurt angle is one of the best pro wrestlers in the world today. I’m just so livid with that ending

  11. Poopsy says:

    I do call some major bullcrap on this one. This was a prime moment to make Bobby Roode one of TNA’s greatest wrestlers… Kurt Angle is a big wrestling veteran, Bobby went through high hell to get this shot, and BFG is like TNA’s Wrestlemania(yes, I called it TNA– I.d.c. about it being IMPACT). This was the PERFECT chance to make Bobby the champion, and then they just wipe their butts with the script, and throw middle fingers in our faces. This just makes Impact look like it’s just going to turn this into an even more stupid storyline. Hogan sucks.

  12. Axel says:

    One thing that blows is TNA had a chance to make a big name star for themselves. Robert Roode was ready for it, to be a name MADE in TNA and not elsewhere. When is the last time TNA did this? 2006. Samoa Joe. 2006. AJ Styles. Since then, TNA hasnt made a name themselves, relied elsewhere. Cmon, this was their chance to make a good move even if would have been predictable >.>

  13. sunshinethewerewolf says:

    @ Kyle Christie. how does TNA put their pants on in the morning with u hanging on their nuts ? Were u refreshing every five seconds to post “waiting for the haters” for every match? Relax.

  14. Kerry says:

    They did all this hype on Bobby Roode only to have him lose? Where’s the logic in this?

  15. Kyle Christie says:

    @sunshinethewerewolf No i wasn’t i just posted it because i knew people would be mad and i was right. And i only posted it here.
