Powell’s POV: TNA has done a very nice job with Angle’s farewell tour of the UK based on what has aired on television thus far. They have done an especially good job of building up the Angle vs. Lashley match as a heated showdown rather than a friendly swan song. Join me for live coverage of TNA Impact Wrestling on Tuesday nights as the show airs on Pop TV at 8:00 CT/9:00 ET.
