Very fun to walk down memory lane with some peak Impact. I regret not leaving feedback. Just a busy time.

Wasn’t able to watch these before the feedback cut-off, but this was a cool set of matches which, like you guys said, highlights both Lethal’s talents and also the lack of a big crossover/breakthrough angle or character in his career.

What you said about it being a 3 year gap and TNA was still selling Lethal the kid getting a big win was a TNA flaw. AJ was a 4 time champion and Hulk Hogan kept calling him the future, he wasn’t he was the present
