‘Impact Wrestling – Operation: Override’ PPV Review

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this review of Impact Wrestling’s Operation: Override, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and this is about 10,000 years too late, but it counts toward a delayed “Last Week In Wrestling” so it has value. Okay, let’s do this before Donald Trump gets impeached for not combing his hair.


Match #1: Double D defeated Damon Windsor, Randy Price and Prince Mahali

My Opinion: 1.1 out of 5 – Well, this sucked. You don’t wanna watch this. Trust me. I’m a war hero and I’m Sharon Stone’s cousin.

Match #2: TJP defeated Rohit Raju

My Opinion: 2.7 out of 5 – TJP was the best part of this match. He may not be a cult of personality, but TJP is one of the best wrestlers around. Rohit Raju sounds like an Indian version of “So Long, Farewell…” from The Sound Of Music. Rohit, Raju, Rohit, Raju, good-night…la la la la la la la la…la la la la la la la la la la la…la la. TJP did the hard work and brought the excitement in a simple match.

Match #3: Moose defeated Hawk

My Opinion: 2.4 out of 5 – Moose attacked a man who is not a Road Warrior and beat him, beat him good. What a rush! Marvel trading cards aren’t worth much. Howard The Duck! Huah!

Match #4: Mahabali Shera defeated Flex Zerba

My Opinion: 1 out of 5 – I’d rather watch Bob’s Burgers go vegan than watch this match. Neither man is any good at wrestling yet and Wilford Brimley is old enough to be dead enough to be creepy enough to be old, dead and creepy.

Match #5: Taya & Rosemary defeated Desiderata & Kiera Hogan

My Opinion: 1.6 out of 5 – Adam Ruins Everything is much better than this match. Did you know that global warming is more enjoyable than this match? Watch the polar bears cry! The wrestling was too slow, sloppy and clunky to be worth the time to watch. Here’s a little ditty, about Jack and Diane: they hated this match too.

Match #6: MVP defeated Chavo Guerrero – World Class Title Match

My Opinion: 2.3 out of 5 – This felt like two old guys being trotted out of the old-folks home to solve a murder that had already been solved by The Hardy Boys. We clued all over the room! We clued there too. This show is being reviewed after the much better version of this match happened at the next Impact show, so this isn’t as depressing as it would have been otherwise.

Match #7: The North defeated The Step Brothas – Impact Tag Team Title Match

My Opinion: 1.9 out of 5 – The North looked good. That’s some-thing.

Match #9: Michael Elgin defeated Fuego Del Sol

My Opinion: 3.5 out of 5 – Now this was some good stuff. Elgin and Del Sol matched-up real well and SQUIRREL! Sorry, I saw a squirrel. I’ll get that little prick. Those are my nuts! My nuts! Why would I write that? I had a delete button, but it corrupted my key-board, so I sent away for another one. For now, I’m using bowling balls attached to French Fries. You wanna 7/10 split some ketchup? Anyway, this match was a grueling, intense contest of beast versus hunter…that sounds stupid. Damn. Hey, this was some great wrestling. Do you think I should get some cheerleaders for the revi…SQUIRREL! Hey! Those are my nuts! My nuts!

Match #10: (Main Event) Eddie Edwards defeated Sami Callihan – Street Fight Match

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – This was a fine brawl that had the wrong winner, but there are far worse people for the number one contender to the Impact World Title to lose to. This match had more hard shots than an appointment at the Major League Baseball Abortion Clinic. Imagine getting a college loan and you’ll have a pretty good idea of how much this match hurt to watch. I could keep going, but I think you get it. Apart from Sami not winning, I have no fault to find with this match.

Final Verdict: 2.4/5

The show had a couple of strong ones at the end, but you had to sit through a lot of garbage to get there.
