So I just finished watching TNA's Total Nonstop Deletion, and personally I really enjoyed it. For all of TNA's behind-the-scene up's and down's in 2016 them have seemed to have found something original that is working for them, & something that no other major wrestling promotion has.
King Maxell's win reminded me of Owen Steen's win a number of years ago. The surprise guests of "The Express That Rock and Rolls" were good, even thought I saw a number of people complain about "The Bucks of Youth" not appearing.
Overall a good show, 2 thumbs up.

I got a good kick out of TND. I realize it wasn't for the "purists", but those assholes get about 100 hours of wrestling programming a week geared to them. It won't kill them to let the rest of us get a bone thrown our way every once in a while. Not everything is about them, and some of us miss the crazy spectacle part of pro-wrestling. So yeah, to hell with 'em. I liked it, and I don't give a shit who knows about it.
For me it was a fun show and pretty much exactly what I expected it to be. The first half of the show was the best part though. Spud jobbing to King Maxel is entertaining and anyone who follows social media would have popped for that (and also the Disco reference)! Also, nobody who is into TND would begrudge Spud for doing that job, because we all want to see King Maxel bury everyone!
I also liked the women's match. It was much better than 90% of what was shown on ROH's Women of Honor episode. That Vangard 1 got involved was also great!
However, the last bit of the show dragged a bit for me. Apocalypto should have been a tad shorter and the HHH joke just seemed misplaced because that's not how Broken Matt would have addressed that. He should have said "The man with three H's could not have buried them any better" but left it at that and not done the winky-wink to the camera. I also didn't need to see Hornswoggle. But overall it was fun even though I wouldn't want to have full episodes like that every week.
