7 Ups & 3 Downs From Impact Wrestling (Nov 19)


3. Cringeworthy At Its Finest

This column has been fairly positive for the most part when it comes to the treehouse segments from The Rascalz, but this one was nothing but cringe from start to finish.

Dez, Wentz, and Trey were recuperating following the beatdown at the hands of Ace Austin and Reno Scum, just as Trey's mother walked into the treehouse. Cue the cheesy love music, with Dez and Wentz practically drooling over Mrs Miguel, who firmly told her son that she would have a word with Austin for knocking out Trey.

Then, the icing on the cake to reach peak cringe: with Dez and Wentz leaving the area to phone their own mothers, a spring sound effect played as Dez rose from his chair, giving the impression that he had become aroused due to Trey's rather attractive mother. Sigh.

It wasn't the worst thing of all time, and it certainly didn't take anything away from Dez and Wentz's sensational four way tag team match earlier in the night, but if we didn't nitpick everything from the show, then there wouldn't be a column to write. Thus, it gets a Down.
