    I can't get over how bad Mike Hogewood is as a commentator.

    Due to Ring of Honor debuting their weekly series on HDNet, TNA has decided that their talents are no longer available to be booked to work Ring of Honor events. I believe the decision made made earlier today. I don't the move comes as a surprise as there was really no way a national promotion was going let what it technically another "nationally televised promotion" showcase their contracted talent.

    Most recently, Ring of Honor had used Samoa Joe and the Motor City Machineguns on events that were released via DVD by the promotion. There weren't any current ROH plans to use TNA talents in the near future.

    This would be the second time TNA opted to pull their contracted talents from being available for ROH bookings, the first being 2004 in the wake of the incident involving then-ROH promoter Rob Feinstein and Philadelphia's NBC 10.

    -Kevin Steen defeated Eddie Edwards. Steen took control early and did the snot blowing spot, but Edwards came back with some nicks kicks and locked Steen into a rear chinlock, then went to work on him in the corner and choked him on the ropes. Sweeney interfered behind the referee's back. Steen mounted a comeback by dropping Edwards groin-first on the top rope and nailing a cannonball in the corner for 2. Steen tried a swanton, but Edwards got the knees up. Steen turned it around with a superkick and enziguiri, followed by the package piledriver for the win.

    -Sara Del Rey defeated Daizee Haze. Sara used her size to overpower Daizee to start slamming her off the top and hitting a vertical splash. Daizee came back with a flying headscissors, but botched a crossbody, which Sara saved with a blockbuster suplex and a backbreaker. Sara got Daizee in a torture rack, but Daizee escaped and hit a heart punch and a yakuza kick for 2. Sara missed a corner charge and Daizee hit...something, but Sara hit a rolling kick and the Butterfly Powerslam for the win.

    -Claudio Castagnoli defeated Alex "Sugarfoot" Payne. Payne outmaneuvered Claudio to start until Claudio caught him in midair and turned it into a windmill slam. Claudio hit a gutwrench slam and a big bicycle kick for 2, and then followed up with a stiff European uppercut and a big power lift. Payne made a comeback with some token 80s enhancement dropkicks and a bulldog, but Claudio killed him with a pop-up 2uropean uppercut and the Ricola Bomb for the win.

    -ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness defeated Jay Briscoe in a non-title match. Nigel worked the arm to start, then they did the headlock/legscissors/escape spot 3 or 4 times before Jay wound up with the headlock. Jay worked the headlock for a minute or two until Nigel escaped and hoit a hammerlock STO. Jay came back with a nice dropkick, but Nigel went back to the arm and hit a hammerlock DDT and a nice hammerlock over-the-shoulder throw. Nigel locked Jay in a cobra clutch, but Jay escaped, ducked a short clothesline, and hit a big boot to turn the tide. Jay with a corner clothesline and a big spinebuster for 2, but Nigel trapped him in the corner and hit the kick to the back/forearm combo. Nigel went for the Tower of London, but Jay escaped and hit a Death Valley Driver for 2. Jay went up top slowly and Nigel nailed him and went for a superplex, but Jay knocked him off the top and hit a top rope legdrop for a close 2. Jay went for the Jay Driller but Nigel escaped and hit the Jawbreaker Lariat for the win.

    He didn't messed up moves, but he makes Don West and Michael Cole look like great announcers.

    Bad news for some.

    On or about March 31, 2009, in the event we are required to cease carriage of HD Net, ch. 798 and HD Net Movies, ch. 797, we plan to launch Smithsonian HD and MAV TV HD in their respective places.

    I called my local cable company in New York City and was told that the HD Net family of channels would likely be dropped within the next week, although they said it was not 100% at this time and that if they are dropped, it's a corporate decision.

    It's official:

    Wrestlezone wrote:
    Time Warner Cable has officially removed the HDNet and HDNet movies cable channels across the country. Those with Time Warner who haven't lost the channel will by Monday.

    HDNet offered Ring Of Honor (ROH) and a number of mixed-martial arts (MMA) first-run television programming.

    MavTV will be replacing HDNet on Time Warner's offering, which features, among other programs, a Roller Derby show involving WWE Hall Of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
