    The Super show wasnt so super. The results were predictable except for Cara vs Bryan which was the only good thing

  • JIR

    I didn’t see it but heard Cara/Hunico vs Bryan was phenomenal
    would love for Live SD on Thursdays

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    If they do go live, I hope it won’t be Tuesday. Personally I think that would be overkill. Wrestling on Monday then the very next night. Move back to Thursday, TNA likes to take shots @ WWE, see if they can back it up and prove they are the superior show to maybe one of the brands although they’d be lucky to beat NXT.

    I hope this could lead to Smackdown going live…
