Best and worst of Impact Wrestling- 18th January 2019
So, I tried out Impact Wrestling on Twitch this week. I must say that it is certainly a great way to enjoy your wrestling. Overall, I would give this week's episode of Impact Wrestling a definite thumbs up. But that's not to say that it was a perfect show by any stretch of the imagination.
There was more than one aspect of the show that I enjoyed. There were some points where I felt my attention waning from the in-ring action. Let me jot them for you in this article.
Like I mentioned before, I love the fact that there is a Twitch chatroom where those watching the action can participate and voice their opinions. It gives a sense of community to those watching, especially because of the late hour.
Here is my personal assessment of all the action that transpired.
#1 Best: Eli Drake behind the commentary desk
Eli Drake is so good on the microphone that it's scary. He manned the desk alongside the very competent Josh Mathews and Don Callis this week and he was absolutely hilarious. Sure, the current program with Eddie Edwards may be a step down for his talents (for Eddie Edwards too). It may not even make sense from a character perspective, because why should Drake care how far Edwards has fallen down the ranks?
But I am willing to forgive all of this because of how entertaining he was behind the desk. His interactions with Mathews and Callis was sitcom level funny. Drake even shut his fans up, when they were chanting his lines.
I love Eddie Edwards too and I wish Drake vs. Edwards was for the title. Both men deserve to be on top right now.
I guess it's only a matter of time before they are, again!
