Impact Wrestling Genesis Results (1/16/14) – The New Beginning

Impact Wrestling Genesis Results – 1/16/2014
From Huntsville, Alabama
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling starts off with the camera on Taz and Mike Tenay as they dedicate this Impact Wrestling to Mae Young. Both Taz and Mike give their praises to the late great Mae Young. A screen is then shown showing her date of birth and the date she passed.

A video plays showcasing Magnus winning the TNA World Championship in the Dixieland match. It then shows AJ Styles returning. Both square off in one match to determine the Undisputed TNA World Champion. After Dixie gathered everyone who is on her side, they attacked AJ in the match while AJ only had Sting (as the others were all taken out). At the end of the day, Magnus retains and is the true champion. The new era begins.

The camera shows the arena and the crowd is going crazy. They are on their feet. Rockstar Spud is in the ring and they start to boo as he begins to speak. He can’t even speak without being booed. He tries to speak but they won’t let him. Spud begins one more time and says tonight is a monumental night in professional wrestling. He is doing a favor as nothing monumental happens in Huntsville. Tonight he introduces the woman who said she would bring back the TNA World Championship… and she did. She is the Queen of TNA Wrestling… Spud’s Queen and our Queen… Madam Dixie Carter! Dixie’s music plays and she comes out on the stage. She walks down the ramp and gets in the ring. Spud and Dixie kiss on the cheeks and he gives her the mic. She thanks everyone and tells them what happens when they cross the boss. First Jeff Hardy and last week AJ Styles. Who is next? Who will be tonight? If someone wants to play a game, she is willing to do so.

Dixie goes on to talk about AJ and says he knew better than to mess with her. She owns this company. He did not listened and went above the law. She offered him time after time to get in the line like everyone else, but he couldn’t do so. The lonely redneck in him ram his head into every situation. Where did that get him? That got him to where he started in his career. That story ends and this is a new chapter in the company. This is about someone who earned this spot. He is a role model. He represents everything Dixie wants to represent his company. He is the Undisputed TNA World Champion Magnus! Magnus’ music hits and here comes the champion. Magnus comes out with a suit on and one championship over his shoulder and the other one around his waist. He gets in the ring and Spud and Dixie celebrate. She gives Magnus the mic.

Magnus introduces himself. He states this is a historic night in Huntsville. The crowd starts to chant, “You sold out, You sold out!” Magnus says he didn’t sell out and this is the night where it is out with the old and in with the new. He calls it the Reign of Magnus! He states that he has the two championships and it is a little annoying but there is a reason for it. He tells Dixie to come forward. He tells Dixie to look around and this is because of her. There are TNA fans all around the world. Magnus then gives Dixie the championship around his waist to her. He states this championship is for her and what she has done for the company. Dixie states she is almost a lost of words but Magnus is the real champion. She then states that we have to thank other people who helped last week. Music hits and here comes The BroMans (with Zema Ion), Bad Influence, Bobby Roode, Gail Kim and Lei’D Tapa. Dixie says they all went above the call of duty last week. She really points out Bobby Roode and says what he did at the end was pure art. Everyone will benefit greatly and they will see that in their paychecks.

Dixie states this is the Genesis of a new company… of TNA Wrestling. This is the Genesis of Dixie Carter’s TNA. For that to happen, everyone has to stand above. Everyone has to stand up. She then brings up Ethan Carter III and says he has to stand up and still keep his undefeated streak and beat Sting tonight. He is EC3! Music hits and here he comes. Ethan runs down the ramp and gets right in the ring. He kisses Dixie and then gets the mic. He clears his throat but the lights go out and music hits! Here comes Sting! Sting is shown in the crowd. He is on top of the steps as the spotlight is on him. He smiles and points his bat toward the ring.

Sting is still in the crowd and has a mic. He asks if this was the future in the ring. He starts to laugh. He says the wait might not be worth it. He talks about people in the back and how she tried to buy them all. He says he feels bad for Dixie and says that she shouldn’t mess with wrestlers. What she did to Kurt’s family was horrible. She shouldn’t even mess with their families. He then turns to the champion and calls him the paper champion. He says they brought him into the Main Event Mafia to help him shine. He turned on them though. He sold out. He says they are not a house united but a house divided. He says it is not going to come crashing down. He says, “We are going to fight tonight.” Dixie asks, “Who is we?” She only sees him. Sting says to look around as they are in Huntsville. Just then, stars come out on the stage. Stars from Samoa Joe, Gunner, James Storm, Joseph Park, and ODB. They run down the ramp and get in the ring. They start fighting the Dixieland faction. They fight in the ring and then take it to the outside. Magnus goes after Park while Sting is going after Ethan. Sting has his bat in his hand and backs up Sting in the corner. He has the bat up under his chi in. He then pounds it right in the gut of Ethan.

    Impact! Yeah! Who is ready?

    • Elto Alexandrov

      This better live up to the whole “new beginning” Dixie has been teasing!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Elto! You came out for the night! Good thing, I’m not guaranteed to make it through the way I’m feeling, so you might need to keep everyone in line if I crash.

        • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

          Jesse told me he won’t be here tonight! I’m hoping we get a great turnout though. Lots of hype for the show.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I will stay if I at all can. This past week my body has been really rough, but I want to see what TNA has for us.

    • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

      Hey Kendra! I am! It’s a “new beginning” tonight!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I have my fingers crossed, but honestly, I’m not sure what they can do at this point, beyond a complete overhaul, to really bring back the fans that have been so burnt.

        • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

          By last week’s numbers the fans are still there… it’s about grabbing more fans.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I think a lot of people watched for AJ. I really think he’s the one who brought in the fans, so I’m not sure what’s going to happen next.

          • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

            Very true indeed! Very interested in the numbers for tonight’s show when they come out tomorrow.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Touting old names could help, but as they weren’t loudly advertised, I’m not sure that will help them much.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m just hoping this “new beginning” is actual change.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        It’s nice to see that so many people have such high hopes for TNA’s future.

    • The Breaker

      Ready and hoping for the best. Roode vs. Angle in a cage should be awesome, and even though I’m not a fan of Anderson I’m looking forward to his match with Bully Ray (because… well, you can probably guess why).

      • Alex Gallardo

        I’m really looking forward to seeing what Bully Ray does next and that cage match should be good as you said.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I’m excited about Roode and Angle, but TNA’s cage matches have blown chunks for quite a while. The last solid one being when Bully turned heel.

        I loves me some Anderson and Bully, so they’re going to kill it.

        It’s the rest of the show that has me worried.

        • The Breaker

          Really good point about the cage matches in TNA. This feud has good momentum and intensity so I’m thinking that’ll translate well tonight to an entertaining brawl.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I honestly hadn’t realized how bad they’d been until Monday night.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah. When is the last time they’ve had a moment like that in TNA? Probably goes back to the cage match at Lockdown where Bully turned..

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I think you’re absolutely right about that. Sadly AJ left with a whimper, not a bang.

          • Alex Gallardo

            They could have at least let him say goodbye to the fans the right way. Hopefully he’ll come back though.

          • The Breaker

            I can’t believe they didn’t give him his moment, after what he means to TNA and its fans.

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    Here’s a little something we can discuss. Lagana, Dave Lagana, writer for Impact, wrote that some old faces arrived tonight. Who would you guess?

    • Elto Alexandrov

      Hoping for Jay Lethal

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I’m ALWAYS hoping for Jay Lethal.

      • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

        I would love to see him back (hence our collaboration article)!

  • Danny Philippi

    Whatcha gonna do when THEY come for you?! Everyone doing good so far?

  • Danny Philippi

    Watched the last month of Impact and I have to say, Impact was building up steam for a few weeks for the first time in a long while. Then last week happened and BAM! The Dixie Train caromed off the tracks and the Rise of Magnus had a staled growth. Hope TNA rebounds tonight.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I have to say that almost anything would be a rebound from last week’s main event.

      • Danny Philippi

        In that case, what would not count as a rebound?

  • josh

    I’ll be here tonight.

    • Alex Gallardo

      The more the merrier.

    • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

      Awesome! Hey Josh!

    • Danny Philippi

      Please send updates on the crowds reaction to both faces and heels. Wonder if TNA fans follow the “script”.

      • Alex Gallardo

        He’s at the show live? Man that’s dope, I still haven’t been able to go to a TNA show.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          For serious wrestling, and the wrestlers putting it all out there, the one TNA show I’ve seen was the best. The WWE has the glitz and charm, but the TNA wrestlers gave to the fans so much more than a show.

        • josh

          Me? I’m not there.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Oh, well that got me confused.

  • josh

    I really hope this show delivers, they kinda need it.

    • Danny Philippi

      TNA is on a Detroit Lion 2013 losing streak.

      • josh

        I don’t follow sports other than wrestling so I have no idea what that means lmao

        • Danny Philippi

          Started the season 6-3, beat Green Bay (their biggest rival) on Thanksgiving, and lost four straight games to end the season 7-9.

          • josh

            Ohh. Well hopefully they won’t ‘end the season’ lol

  • Danny Philippi

    Here is what I hope for tonight:
    1) Reviving the tag team division
    2) A new knockout or a returning knockout
    3) Angle vs. Roode perform an adequate cage match like WWE did Monday

    • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

      Can a whole division be revived on one night?

      • Alex Gallardo

        They could at least get the ball rolling.

    • Alex Gallardo

      That would really make the show worth watching. TNA really needs to revive not only the tag team division, but all of their mid card.

  • Alex Gallardo

    R.I.P Mae Young, she lived a very good life. That was really nice of TNA to do.

  • Danny Philippi

    Strange but classy way TNA to start a show.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I give them props for doing it. Everyone in the industry knew her, respected her, loved her, it’s not just the WWE.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    They started things right with this dedication to Mae Young. I loved that woman.

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s very sad to say that she’s gone, but she lived a great life and she’ll remembered for a very long time.

  • The Breaker

    Spud quoting Bad News Barrett!

  • Danny Philippi

    Love the “Magnus Wears Panties” sign. LOL

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Better than what Spud is wearing! What is he stuffing with?

      • David Jr.

        I think it’s obvious, it’s a Potato.

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          Reminds me of Big Show smuggling plums.

  • Alex Gallardo

    It’s nice seeing TNA on the road, and I’m fine with it being on occasion.

  • Danny Philippi

    TNA presents The B##ch and the Pauper.

    • Danny Philippi

      I take it back. More like Missy Hyatt and Paul Roma.

  • The Breaker

    This is supposed to be a Genesis-themed show… let’s get on with the matches!

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    I wonder how long will they keep both of the championships.

  • David Jr.

    Reign of Magnus, how clever.

  • ldb

    instead of pimpin ain’t easy…..TNA wrestling ain’t pretty. … but maybe they can bring the wrestling

  • Danny Philippi

    Magnus should shine Dixie’s shoes, too.

  • David Jr.

    Is Dixie Carter competing with Triple H for the longest segments?

    • Danny Philippi

      Absolutely, I guess.

  • josh

    To quote my article, “At the TNA Live Event I went to, people were chanting that Magnus sold out, but the reality is, AJ Styles sold out.”

  • Elto Alexandrov

    It’s happening… ANOTHER dominant stable. Jesus Christ.

  • The Breaker

    It’s the new Aces!

  • David Jr.

    In all of there paychecks will be a gift certifcate to the Sizzler.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Spud is littler than Kim. Tapa’s thighs would squish that little man!

  • BlazeKing

    I burst out into laughter after that “Champion of our Hearts” bull, ah hahahaha!!!!

    WHAT?!

  • Danny Philippi

    15 minutes and no matches. Looks like a post-BFG show instead of a PPV.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    I was talking about Chavo to Sam recently, and Ashlyn – new to wrestling – asked who I was talking about. I said the nephew of the annoying older woman on mic.

    Ashlyn thought I was talking about Dixie and EC3.

  • Elto Alexandrov

    By the way, isn’t Sting’s contract expiring soon?

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    First off, love the opening to show respect to Mae Young! Class act!

  • josh

    Its 16 mins in and I’m already seeing hate on Twitter yawn

    • Danny Philippi

      #TotalNonstopActing #TotalNoAction #LOL

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    Not sure if anyone caught it but Ion has his gear on tonight. Could be wrestling X-Division style.

  • The Breaker

    This segment is still going after commercial? Seriously?

    • David Jr.

      They advertise this as free on tv, anyone who paid for a start like this, would demand their money back.

  • Danny Philippi

    WCW called. They went their Oct. 24 1997 script back.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Thank you! I was laughing so hard Stacy asked what he was missing. i read it to him and he was about on the floor.

  • Danny Philippi

    22 minutes before the first punch thrown.

    • josh

      I’m sorry but can you stop complaining

      • Danny Philippi

        Can’t stop observing the truth.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        I agree, the opening of the show has been really bad, and this is a place for people to express their feelings about what’s going on in the industry.

    • The Breaker

      And this isn’t even a match– though, it’s just as much a ‘match’ as we saw last week to end the show.

  • Elto Alexandrov

    Great promo by Sting, awful concept.

  • David Jr.

    With the purple trunks, ECIII reminds me of “The Model” Rick Martel.

    • Danny Philippi

      Rick Martel was the AWA Heavyweight Champion in a time when AWA had Nick Bockwinkel, Curt Hennig and Jerry Lawler. Should have been at least Intercontinental Champion in the early 90′s.

  • The Breaker

    Another commercial break… don’t tell me when it comes back this is still going!

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    I don’t know how to say this without it sounding bad, but other than Tapa and Kim, that’s the whitest roster I’ve ever seen!

    • josh

      LOL there might not be many knockouts but they are diverse

  • The Breaker

    THE SEGMENT ISN’T OVER YET?! This has to be the worst opening half hour I’ve ever seen.

    • josh

      I highly doubt it.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        It is right up there. I have to agree with Breaker and Danny.

      • The Breaker

        What part of that was enjoyable to watch? And what purpose does any of this serve?

        • josh

          I enjoyed the Sting part, gives more heel heat to Dixie. I’m not saying it was good, but I’ve seen far worse on WWE.

          • The Breaker

            Any heat Dixie is getting is “go away” heat. Nobody wants to see her. And maybe there has been worse in WWE, but this was the worst in recent memory.

  • Danny Philippi

    Tapa can’t go over the top rope cleanly.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    EY hit that corner beautifully! I rewound to show the family, and we’re all giddy.

  • Danny Philippi

    ODB better than half the men in there.

  • The Breaker

    It really looks to me like Joe couldn’t care less out there.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    So, the whole roster (?) other than the three scheduled matches, are in that match? Okay, the whole roster that’s there tonight.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Guess I was wrong, but didn’t really expect to see more guys there that weren’t in that big match.

  • josh

    Alright enough segments, lets get into the next match.

  • Danny Philippi

    NOW SABIN AND VELVET ARE GOING TO HAVE A SEGMENT? UGH!

    • David Jr.

      What makes this Genesis? To me it’s just another episode of Impact.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Their ‘free ppvs’ have been that since the format has changed.

        • David Jr.

          I meant this doesn’t seem like one of those special episodes.

  • David Jr.

    He wasn’t saying anything, He was just talking. That’s a great line right there.

  • ldb

    Velvet Sky best line ever “He wasn’t saying anything we were just talking”

    • David Jr.

      We seem to agree on that.

  • The Breaker

    Aries is trying to steal Velvet? To be honest I really don’t care about Sabin, his relationship, or the X-Division Title.

  • Danny Philippi

    Angle acting like Goldberg circa 1999 backstage.

  • David Jr.

    Since he’s not here tonight, I’ll say it for him.
    FAIL SABIN!!!

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Thanks! I was so mesmerized by Velvet’s tatas. They don’t move!

      • Danny Philippi

        I would move on Velvet, but Mrs. Newman brought home some bacon that is not for begging.

      • David Jr.

        Shouldn’t I be the one who’s mesmerized by them?

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          You can, but I can get away with saying it without being called a pig by any other females on the site. Wait, it’s just me and Ashley!

          • David Jr.

            So if I said i was impressed by Velvet’s chest, you’d call me a pig. Or just Ashley would, or both of you?

      • josh

        They are even better in person

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          I know, I was impressed when I saw her live.

  • Danny Philippi

    Crap. Aries could have three X-Division Title reigns in six weeks. Talk about a fluid title scenario.

    • David Jr.
      • Danny Philippi

        FANTASTIC!

        • David Jr.

          That’s what the X-Division Title has become between Sabin and Aries.

    • Josh Melton

      Aries is too good for the X-Division thought he was passed that ):

  • David Jr.

    How hard can it be to find Dixie? What is her office in the Boiler Room?

  • Alex Gallardo

    I almost didn’t recognize Bully’s old music at first, but now I’m pretty excited.

    • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

      Same! I was thinking, “Who is this?”

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    I don’t want to attack the show so far but I don’t see it nearly as a Genesis as they kept hyping for.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      You’re being nicer than some of us are!

    • josh

      I agree, but the second hour should be a lot better. Not sure why they cram all the good stuff into the 2nd hour though.

  • Danny Philippi

    57 minutes in and we have only our SECOND match.

    • Alex Gallardo

      So much for that whole “Wrestling Matters” campaign that they did.

      • Danny Philippi

        I guess they opted for a reality-based program a la Real World.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Let’s just hope that the Miz doesn’t show up next week.

          • Danny Philippi

            I wish his fiancée showed up just once.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Johnny Fairplay – He was trying to get into wrestling at some point, and the host of a wrestling show coming up south of Boston soon.

  • Danny Philippi

    I hate to break it to the current wrestling fans, but the original ECW isn’t being revived anytime soon.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      Why? Because one kick broke the guardrail?

      • Danny Philippi

        It would be like grunge music after Nirvana.

    • Alex Gallardo

      And I’m fine with that, especially after what WWE did with it. ONS 2005 should have been their final show.

      • josh

        I liked Hardcore Justice 2010

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Bully has Mae on his wrist tape! I loved their best moment!

    • David Jr.

      I had a feeling he would pay tribute to her. I’ve read so much how much he respected her and how tough he said she was.

    • The Breaker

      She was crazy for letting him put her through that table!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        He didn’t want to do it. He refused. She bitch slapped him and told him to grow a set!

        • The Breaker

          That is Mae in a nutshell!

          • Hayden Tyler

            She said the powerbomb through the table was weak.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Bully always protected the women and hit that move differently on them – he’d put his bum and legs through to protect them.

          • Hayden Tyler

            yea i knew that but that is what she said about it in an interview

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Not surprised. She was a tough old bird.

          • Hayden Tyler

            yes she was

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            Exactly, and why I’m not shocked to see him paying homage that way, and why it’s my favorite moment, even though it’s something we never got to see.

  • Danny Philippi

    Nice match, in a ugly way. Bully Ray is one of a few TNA wrestlers I respect.

    • Josh Melton

      Best match of the night, so glad TNA gave Bully Ray a chance to shine..

  • David Jr.

    I don’t like seeing the piledriver, cause if you botch it, you could seriously injure or worse kill a guy. But if you’re going to do it, I’m glad it finishes the match.

    • Hayden Tyler

      I thought it was banned but i guess just in WWE it is.

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        It is banned in the WWE, not TNA. Only Taker and Kane are allowed to hit the move. Even Cena and Punk got in trouble for doing it without telling anyone ahead of time.

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    Guess no Steel Cage match this week.

  • Danny Philippi

    Just watching Al Snow reminds me how long he has been in pro wrestling. With ECW, WWE, and TNA.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I love Al Snow. He’s been a favorite of mine for years.

      • Danny Philippi

        Loved him and Bill Demott during the old school Tough Enough’s

        • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

          I loved him there, especially when he pulled out Boogeyman’s license to show he was lying about his age, then threw him out.

          But before that, I loved his crazy antics.

  • Danny Philippi

    THIRD SEGMENT. Plus Dixie’s music makes my ears ache.

    • David Jr.

      Vote for Dixie for the Gooker 2013. If you know what that is, you’ll know what I’m talking about.

  • Guest

    Dixie has no mic skills.

  • Hayden Tyler

    that looked like a setup

  • Danny Philippi

    TNA: GENESIS. A night of set-ups.

  • Danny Philippi

    Madison may not win the knockout title, but she has improved mightily since her absence from the company. I guess being a mother inspires you to do better.

    • Danny Philippi

      Guess I was wrong. Hope the knockouts title is not another hot potato. Way to go Madison.

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Borash looked like a chubby kid with a bad haircut, and too much eyeliner!

  • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

    Thank you Taz for completely ruining that victory win for Madison. “What happened?” – Isn’t Taz suppose to be watching the match?

    • Danny Philippi

      TAZ RUINS EVERYTHING! Put that on a t-shirt!

    • The Breaker

      Taz has been plain awful basically ever since Aces formed.

      • David Jr.

        Taz has been plain awful for longer than that.

        • The Breaker

          He was okay doing color commentary back on SmackDown..

          • David Jr.

            I agree but then they stuck him with Mike Adamle on WWECW, and he like just coasted since.

          • Bob’s Diner

            I remember his first few episodes commentating for TNA – it was so obvious he had no clue about the product and didn’t really sound like he cared either

          • The Breaker

            Exactly what David said. He’s been coasting.

  • The Breaker

    There wasn’t much of a buildup during that match for the title change. Didn’t see it coming at all.

  • David Jr.

    Sting, the greatest wrestler who never wrestled in the WWE.
    We never saw Sting vs. Undertaker, Sting vs. Shawn MIchaels, Sting vs. the Rock or heck even Sting vs. John Cena. But tonight makes up for all that.

  • Danny Philippi

    WWE NXT Rejects.

  • The Breaker

    THE AMERICAN PIT– I mean, WOLVES!!

  • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

    Not this again! Another new investor?

    • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

      Simply playing in the hands of the IWC. Real life drama!

      • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

        Reality my ass! It’s lack of creativity and recycling storylines that are barely cold!

        • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

          Everything is a recycling bin.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I understand that, but waiting a decent length of time is always needed so they don’t look both pathetic and desperate.

          • http://miscellaneousmumble.blogspot.com/ Alex Barie

            I am more so against Team Dixie being more like Aces.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            I guess at this point all we’re seeing is that Dixie doesn’t have a clue what she’s doing, and won’t let anyone guide her hand to give the fans a solid wrestling show. Therefore it’s devolving into reality-ish crap.

        • The Breaker

          That goes for basically everything coming out of TNA Creative these days. I expected so much more from Lagana.

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            He’s working for Dixie. I think that’s all we need to know at this point.

          • The Breaker

            Why hire anyone with a lick of knowledge about the business if she just wants to run everything herself?

          • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

            That’s what I’ve been wondering for quite a while now.

    • David Jr.

      Wouldn’t you think Dixie would have known if someone was investing in her company?

    • The Breaker

      More “reality”…

    • Danny Philippi

      Recycling bin weighs less now.

  • Danny Philippi

    GOOD GREIF! #StingDeservesBetter

  • Danny Philippi

    With what is happening tonight, who would you have as head creative: Dave Lagana or Vince Russo?

  • Danny Philippi

    GOOD GREIF! #StingDeservesBetter

  • The Breaker

    That’s really putting EC3 over…. *sarcasm*

    • David Jr.

      I’m all for Sting putting someone over, but ECIII is not one of those guys.

      • The Breaker

        True, he never deserved it in the first place.

        • Josh Melton

          He deserves it, TNA needs to create new stars EC3 is one of them etc..

  • The Breaker

    Sting vs. Magnus was underwhelming last time. Not looking forward to this.

    • Josh Melton

      Sting is 54 years old” Give the man a break he needs to retire already…

  • Danny Philippi

    I have officially checked out. Good night.

    • http://www.wrestlingnewsworld.com/ Kendra Bunyon

      I agree. Heading to bed as well. Night!

  • Nate031492

    American Wolves in TNA!

    • Josh Melton

      Awesome indeed

  • Josh Melton

    Very good PPV, Genesis was not as awful as it could have been.I expect ratings to drop after last week. But other than that I enjoy tonight’s show. it was good..Hopefully next week will have some memorable moments that will leave peoples talking..

  • packerpf

    This was a fairly boring show, so stupid to split this into 2 shows.

  • Thomas-24/7 (Mutascale)

    If Sting wins the World Title, then it will put the rumors to rest about Sting going to the WWE.
