Impact Wrestling Results – 10/17/2013
From Tulsa, Oklahoma
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

A video package starts the show off. It shows the EGO Hall of Fame ceremony but it was interrupted by Kurt Angle. It then shows Dixie Carter pushing her weight around as she booked Magnus and Sting in a tag team match. They won and they are able to go to Bound for Glory. It then shows AJ Styles and beating Knux and Garett Bischoff. Bully Ray took care of him at the end though. He’s keeping his title. AJ Styles states you have to kill him to beat him.

Music plays and here comes TNA President Dixie Carter. She walks down the ramp and there are two people behind her. They are called security but one is holding a briefcase. They all get in the ring. Dixie grabs a mic. She thanks everyone. Dixie says she knows what Michael Angelo felt like when he finished painting the 16th chapel. Dixie’s artwork will be seen at Bound for Glory. Michael didn’t have a redneck to ruin his artwork like Dixie has with AJ. Dixie calls AJ stupid for not staying down last week as Bully Ray attacked him. Dixie goes on to talk about analyzing. She is planning on a huge contract signing tonight. The fans chant, “Hogan.” She tells them that someone could step up and impress her tonight. That person could walk away with $50,000 and the title opportunity at Bound for Glory and then this would make AJ Styles’ last night in the company. Dixie says she creates opportunities and makes people rich. That is what she does best. The one guy opens the briefcase and shows all of the money. Just then, Aces & 8s President Bully Ray comes down the ramp. He has Brooke by his side. They make it to the ring. He has the TNA World Title in hand. He has a mic and yells for his music to be shut off.

Ray states that he and Dixie haven’t really seen eye to eye and he really isn’t on Team Dixie but he likes $50,000. He states that he took out AJ for free though. Dixie thanks him. Just then, Magnus’ music hits and he comes down the ramp. He gets in the ring and grabs a mic. Magnus wants to see if he understands this. 12 men put their life and career on the line for 3 months for Dixie and that title, but since Dixie doesn’t like AJ, she is willing to give someone who is greedy the opportunity. Magnus knows why people are sayiing, “Dixie sucks!” The crowd starts to chant it. Magnus states $50,000 may be chump change for Dixie or for Bully, but it’s not to him and the good people in the arena. Magnus tells Dixie to look at him as he is sick and tired of her talking every week. Magnus will fight Bully for free tonight. Ray asks Magnus if he knows who he is. Ray knows people are saying Magnus is the future of the company. He has the look and the passion. People seem to like him a lot. They believe in him and so does Sting. Ray is going to tell them all the truth. Magnus and Ray know that Magnus is a fraud. He is smoke and mirrors. He doesn’t have a tough bone in his body. Ray knows Magnus since the day he stepped foot in a wrestling ring. He is a loser. Ray says Magnus is probably the biggest disappointment he has ever seen. He mind as well be from Oklahoma. Magnus punches Ray right in the face and he falls down. He rolls out of the ring. He pounds on the commentator’s table. He is furious.

Ray accepts the match tonight. They will fight tonight.

Kurt Angle’s music plays. He comes out with a huge smile on his face as the fans cheer. He gets in the ring and grabs a mic. Kurt says it’s great to be back. He wants to get down to business though. Bobby Roode is one of the most talented wrestlers he has ever seen. He reminds him of himself 5 years ago. When he tries to rain on Kurt’s parade… one of the most important days in his career… he made it personal. It’s one thing when Roode tries to make himself look good, but when he messes with Kurt’s legacy, he dug his own grave. He will never be Kurt Angle. Roode’s music hits. Bobby Roode comes out on the stage and walks down the ramp. He gets in the ring and grabs a mic. Roode says he will never be Kurt Angle…. he will never be Kurt… Roode says that is right. He isn’t him. He is okay with that. He doesn’t want to be Kurt Angle. Not here or now… not today! He wanted to be him 10 years ago. Kurt was the be-all end-all of professional wrestling. Now Roode is the be-all end-all of professional wrestling. Roode says Kurt ruined his night last week. That was Roode’s. Kurt very well knows Roode is more worthy of an introduction than himself. He says Kurt hasn’t done anything in years. Last thing he did was two years ago when he beat Roode two years ago at Bound for Glory. It woke Roode up though. It did him a favor. He became the World Champion after that. Not only that, but the longest reigning and dominant champion in the history of this company. Yes, longer than Kurt.

Roode continues: Roode says he is not going to be Kurt… he is going to be Bobby Roode. Roode will beat Angle. Angle responds by asking Roode how he will beat him if he will be the one tapping? Roode says he is not going to tap because… BOOM! Roode punches Kurt right in the face. It knocks him down and then he stomps on him. Roode takes his coat off. He goes to do a power bomb or piledriver, but Angle reverses it and does the Ankle Lock. Kazarian and Daniels run down the ramp and attack Kurt from behind. They toss Angle shoulder first into the ring post. They continue to attack him. Roode stands and yells at both of them to get out of the ring. Roode applies the crossface. Kurt withstands the pain, but he finally taps. Roode grabs a mic. “As I was saying… because I will make you tap out!” Roode’s music hits. He taunts.

Dixie Carter, her guards, and Jeremy Borash are in the ring. Borash introduces Dixie Carter than then introduces Bully Ray as this is the official contract signing for the TNA World Title match at Bound for Glory. Bully Ray comes out as his music plays. Brooke is beside him. They come down the ramp and get in the ring together. Borash now introduces AJ Styles. Styles comes out on the stage and walks down the ramp. He stops and the other music plays. The crowd is on their feet. He gets in the ring. Borash gets back on the mic and hypes their match at the PPV. He tells Bully Ray to sign it first. Ray grabs the clipboard with the contract on it and signs it. He then grabs a mic. Ray says he didn’t waste anytime signing the contract. He wants to make it real simple… a redneck can’t beat him. AJ doesn’t have the passion to beat him. He doesn’t have the thunder in his fists to beat him. He then yells at Borash as he was going to take the mic. Ray brings up 1985 and states Ric Flair took out Dusty Rhodes. A month later, Rhodes came back and Ric put Rhodes on hard times and the wrestling business on hard times and the fans on hard times. Flair put Rhodes’ family on hard times. Fast forward to almost thirty years later. He is Bully Ray and for the past year and half he put the wrestling world on hard times. He started with Jeff Hardy at Lockdown. He became TNA World Champion. He defeated Sting at Slammiversary and now Sting no longer can fight for the title. He then ran Chris Sabin back to the X-Division. Ray is the guy who ran Hulk Hogan out of the company and put him on hard times. What does this have to do with AJ? Ray knows AJ is confused. In three days, when Ray defeats AJ, he will put AJ on hard times. He will put AJ’s fans on hard times. Most of all, he will put him on such hard times that he will send AJ home with no contract and championship. When he gets back to that trailer park, he wouldn’t be shocked if his wife and tree kids left him. Ray is the Darth Vader of this wrestling business and he is no Luke Skywalker!

Ray hands him the mic. AJ says he appreciates the story. Thing is, they aren’t Ric Flair or Dusty Rhodes. That was the past. This is the future. The fact that Ray compared himself to Flair really shows who he is. AJ will tell who Ray really is. He is a “big dumb b%tch”. He has to win this Sunday. He will make Ray beg and cry. That title means everything to Ray. AJ is the most desperate and dangerous man Ray has ever gotten in the ring with. He will make Ray pay as he becomes the new TNA World Champion. AJ drops the mic and signs the contract.

Borash grabs the clipboard and she hands it to Dixie Carter. Ray tells Dixie he will no longer put his title on the line this Sunday. He will cash in on that $50,000 bounty though! Ray smashes the podium into AJ’s gut. He knocks it down and then goes to AJ, but AJ ducks and grabs the briefcase from the guard. He smashes the case into Ray’s head. He falls. AJ opens the briefcase and throws the money right at Dixie Carter! She yells at the guard to pick it up. She gets on her hands and knees and starts picking up the money. AJ turns and stands/leans on the ropes. Bully Ray is standing on the end of the ramp. They exchange words. AJ says that title will put food on the table for his kids. He needs it. The show fades.

Alex’s Assumptions:

Bound for Glory is only three days away and, while the build for the show has been pretty short since it is their biggest pay-per-view of the year, I felt like they had some solid build tonight in regards to certain stories! I always state that the show before a PPV should always build the matches up. Nothing else should matter except those stories/matches. TNA did a fine job plugging and hyping and building every match. I do feel like the Knockouts Title match could have had more hype instead of a single backstage promo. I, however, loved how the show was really built around AJ Styles. From putting a bounty on AJ Styles to the contract signing… it was about him. Also, Bully Ray made his fair share of appearances tonight. Their story had great progression tonight that makes their match at the PPV even better! There are three things I want to point out. One is Bully Ray vs. Magnus. Not only do I love seeing a Bully Ray match, but Magnus is continuing to shine. There’s no doubt he will be in the main event and possibly champion within the first six months of next year. The next thing is Roode and Angle in the ring. Their match was only announced last week, but I feel like it has a tremendous story and one of the most anticipated matches on the card. Both told great stories during their segment. Roode really shined in it. The last thing is Bully Ray’s promo in the ending segment. That promo was brilliant! It was tremendous! I loved it! It’s a classic promo! He had a story and made his point at the end. He reached back to talk about history and then went to talk about today. There’s no doubt he is one of the best in the business, maybe the best right now! Bound for Glory is only 3 days away. This was the last show before the PPV. Make sure you join me as I supply the live coverage for the Bound for Glory pre-show this Sunday right here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com! Like my Facebook page for my full wrestling thoughts.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to this week’s Impact Watch Party! With only 3 nights until Bound For Glory, things are sure to be heated tonight! We have the contract signing for Bully Ray vs. AJ Styles tonight, as well as a full slate of matches! What are you looking forward to?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Magnus vs. Sting! I’m so excited for this match. It will finally elevate Magnus to the main event status he deserves.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I agree! I am also looking forward to the Ultimate X match, as it will have tons of great spots, Angle/Roode for the technical masterpiece it is sure to be, and Styles/Bully for the storylines it is sure to produce.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well I’m not the biggest X division fan, but their match should be good. And considering the rest of this card, I’ll probably buy BFG this year. The last time I did that was BFG 2011 for Sting and Hogan.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Well toady I decided to leave the IWC. No longer will I be visiting news sites for wrestling. Ever since I’ve joined the IWC my interest in wrestling has gone down and I don’t enjoy watching it the same as I did before. I forgot about WNW and deactivated my account (which will take effect in 48 hours) I will open another Disquis though and use it for these watch parties.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Can Disqus not cancel the deactivation? However, I am happy that we were able to show you that not all internet wrestling sites are nasty, troll riddled brutish affairs. Glad to have you here Alex!

      • Alex Gallardo

        Thank you. Some of the smarks didn’t want me to leave actually, but the IWC and me just don’t work out. I’ll see if I can cancel it, but I’m not sure if that’s available. .

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

      That’s what I had to do for the week when I went on vacation. It really helps. It makes you love the product even more. I hope you do come back though.

      • Alex Gallardo

        To those NEWZ sites? HELL NO! I’ll still follow you on Twitter and Facebook and do some tweeting of my own. I’ll also still be on WNW for the watch parties, I’m just done with going into these smark cesspools every day. Even though they were pretty nice to me when I left.

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

          AHHH, I understand! Great! We go way back to my Facebook page days! Glad to still have you around! Haha

          • Alex Gallardo

            No problem. You’re much better than cesspools like Wrestling Inc.

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

            There’s no one better than WNW! :)

    • David Jr.

      That’s funny, I guess I am part of the IWC, but in reality I’m not.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well, I just had to leave those NEWZ sites. My interest in wrestling was being destroyed by them.

        • David Jr.

          Yeah I use to visit those NEWZ sites, but 5 years ago I found WNW and now I only visit WNW and one other wrestling site (it’s not a NEWZ site).

      • Jesse Sherwood

        There’s being part of the IWC, then there’s being an arrogant troll who decides to lampoon people simply because they can. Most NEWZ sites are saturated with the latter and don’t care to clean up their acts, as it gets them more hits. We care about our community.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Good. All it took was one troll to destroy that site and lead the way for others to follow.

  • The Breaker

    So, how many matches are confirmed so far? Less than five from what I can remember (I could be wrong, last week feels like so long ago). Guess we’ll have a ton more matches booked on the go-home?

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s still better than last year’s AWFUL buildup.

      • The Breaker

        That’s debatable. I remember being more excited about last year’s.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Half the matches were made in a rush in final two weeks. This year’s has had a smooth and good buildup process.

          • The Breaker

            The Ultimate X, Tag Team match, and Sting/Magnus were just booked in the past few weeks. Not too much of an improvement in efficiency.

          • Alex Gallardo

            But they’ve had more than one segment and have been made to look like they matter.

          • The Breaker

            They’ve sorta been kicking it into overdrive the past couple weeks to compensate for the lack of build. But taking it all into consideration I’m not really jacked for any of the storyline that’s gone into it because it’s been so weak. The matches themselves are intriguing enough to sell the PPV though.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      7. Bully/Styles, Angle/Roode, Sting/Magnus, KO Triple Threat, Tag Gauntlet, Tag Title Match, and Ultimate X.

      • The Breaker

        Thanks.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          No problem! I have been writing my Predicts today, so the card is burned into my head.

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

    Sorry I’m so late. Been dealing with an issue. Hopefully I can focus on TNA now!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I don’t like Dixie as a heel, but last week’s highest rating was her opening segment. Let’s just see if she could keep it up.

    • David Jr.

      They saw how bad she was so they changed the channel that why they went down?

      • Alex Gallardo

        But the whole segment had the highest rating that week. Maybe people do like her, but it all depends if she could keep it up.

        • David Jr.

          I’m saying people watched the segment, saying oh my god that was bad then changed the channel and never turned it back on.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Maybe. Once again we have to see if they keep tuning in.

          • David Jr.

            I’m just guessing, I could be wrong.

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

      Maybe people wanted to see the trainwreck?

      • Alex Gallardo

        Perhaps, but there are plenty of other things that they could watch that aren’t train wrecks and will actually entertain them.

      • The Breaker

        A trainwreck would be a more compelling watch. There is no merit to any of what she’s done in terms of being entertaining.

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

    “We want Hogan!” chants.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Proof that the fans still want Hogan.

      • David Jr.

        When they got the tickets, Hogan was probably advertised.

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

          I bet he was. But those usually say ‘card subject to change’ but I understand them not being happy. It is Hogan.

        • Alex Gallardo

          And perhaps his name got them to buy tickets.

          • David Jr.

            That’s my guess, too.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Dixie opening is really not a good idea! Things tanked last week after that. Hopefully, this week won’t be more of the same.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Did anyone notice that very obvious edit?

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

      What did I miss? Still not completely focused yet with kids all over the place right now.

      • Alex Gallardo

        During the opening segment there was a very obvious edit when Bully was talking.

  • The Breaker

    Bully’s voice is a little rough, but it doesn’t take anything away from his mic work!

    • Alex Gallardo

      He’s great as a heel and at getting the crowd fired up. I would love to see him have a promo every week.

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

        I agree with you, he carries the crowd so well, gets the reactions, and is entertaining.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I loved his old school ECW promos a lot.

        • The Breaker

          He’s been the saving grace for TNA over the past several months.

      • Josh Melton

        Bully Ray has become a big fish in a small pond.

  • The Breaker

    The TNA production crew continues to show empty seats… *facepalm*

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It looks really bad.

    • Alex Gallardo

      TNA needs to pick the same arenas that ECW used during their TV deal with TNN. The Hammerstein Ballroom (besides the smarky crowd) would be great.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Heck, even the smarky crowd could help TNA. It’s better than the crowds being dead, as they are half of the time with TNA’s current run.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well I don’t want a dead crowd, but I left the IWC for a reason. They did pretty good there once for a house show so they would probably do even better for a TV taping.

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

      I wrote about that last week. Horrible. Unacceptable!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Smoke and Mirrors? That’s an inadvertent Cody Rhodes reference!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Now Magnus is fighting Bully Ray. They are really preparing him to be a main event player.

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

      Mags is great and should be in some bigger feuds to prove himself.

      • Alex Gallardo

        They’ve already pushed him with the MEM and his feud with Sting. He’s moving up on the card and I love it. If only Matt Morgan was right there with him.

  • The Breaker

    Think they’ll turn on Bully so they can take the cash for themselves?

  • David Jr.

    Is it going to be an actual gauntlet match or a TNA Royal Rumble like match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d guess it is an elimination match. That is TNA’s normal Gauntlet. But apparently it is a standard Gauntlet, according to the commentary.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “I told you guys I’d give you the spotlight!” All the while the camera is focused on Bully Ray.

  • David Jr.

    Does anybody on here want one of the other 3 teams, not named Bad Influence, to win?

    • Josh Melton

      Bad Influence/EGO are best thing going for TNA today

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

        They are the most interesting team right now, and I’m all of Storm and Gunner.

      • David Jr.

        Bad Influence is far and away the best tag team in TNA.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, there are only 2 viable teams, Bad Influence and the Mexi-Cans, but after Chavo’s sobriety issues, I don’t see them getting the chance.

      • David Jr.

        I don’t like the Mexi-cans, Its like TNA said, Oh we have two Mexican Americans on our roster, lets make them a tag team.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I agree, and their styles are really not cohesive. Add in Chavo’s issues and Hernandez’s tendency to botch, and they may be the most dangerous team in wrestling today.

          • David Jr.

            And Hernandez is 40 years old, so its not like he’s going to get better.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope, he is on the closer end of retirement.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, EY and Joseph are on a Road Trip, but they are here in a “Live” impact? BAKA!!!

    • The Breaker

      Easy. EY has a body double for the road trip.

  • Alex Gallardo

    EY and Joseph Parks are good examples of comedy characters. Take notes Vince.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      EY is one of those guys who can do anything. I loved him in World Elite, and like Big Show, his goofy side brings a smile to my face.

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

        I didn’t think he’d be a decent heel, but in WE, EY was fantastic!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Let Robbie win tonight, just not at BFG.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Job Robbie to everyone. Bro-Mans should be TNA’s 3MB!

  • Alex Gallardo

    This bounty storyline will be pretty cool if they continue to use it throughout the night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so. Let him fend off Kaz and Kenny King and it should be fun!

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

        Jessie was bad enough! Not Kenny King!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Ok, Zema Ion. Give him a show bonus.

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

            I actually want to see Ion back. He was looking better before he left, and I know what he’s had to deal with when he was out. Huge props for coming back from the ick he’s been through.

      • Alex Gallardo

        It’s actually a good concept for wrestling to use. If they have a story continue through the night then it would get people invested to see what would happen next.

      • David Jr.

        Why don’t you call him by his full name. Kenny Is Not Good.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I actually forgot that one! Thanks David!

    • Josh Melton

      Reminds me of when Mcmahon put 100,000 bounty on Austin ;)

      • David Jr.

        Or when Triple H put a bounty on Goldberg.

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

          And Eugene looking for the bounty and getting a roll of paper towels.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHAT?! I… Just no.. I need mind bleach for a Robbie E win.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    GET READY TO FLY!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, so much for this lasting all night!

    • The Breaker

      So AJ just gets his tail handed to him and ducks out for Storm and Gunner to take over? Kinda pathetic… so much for making them “pay”.

  • David Jr.

    Anyone see that Vampire Diaries is using Evil Ways for their commercials?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I did, and I like it. It’s my current ringtone. I admit I may let calls go to voicemail so I can hear most of it!

    • The Breaker

      I saw that. I like the song, so it’s cool to see it being used even though it’s for a show I don’t watch.

      • David Jr.

        I don’t watch the show either, I was watching Supernatural, when I saw it.

        • The Breaker

          Supernatural is one I’ve thought about getting into.

          • David Jr.

            It’s in season 9, so you’d have alot to go back to watch, otherwise it might be confusing.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah I know. I’d definitely start from the beginning. They have it on Netflix, but I’m not currently subscribed.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Garrett, don’t try to look menacing. You can’t pull it off dude!

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

      It’s Garett! Don’t you remember Bisch’s tweet about us $%^&*()(*&^%$# dirt sheets knowing how to spell his son’s name?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope! EB can chew my fat! I’ll follow him on Twitter when he follows me or when I am a millionaire!

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

          It was such a lame tweet that i had to comment.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, why are we seeing this match? It seemed like it was supposed to be a match despite what happened.

  • The Breaker

    I hate how they have to advertise for Rampage and Ortiz. Yeah they are rockstars, to the point that they stepped into the TNA ring and wasted everyone’s time for a fight that no one in the arena cared about in the first place.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Last week it was Frank Shamrock, this time it is Rampage. What do you want to bet it is Tito next week?

      • The Breaker

        I’m counting on it.

    • Alex Gallardo

      TNA needs to give up on this MMA experiment. It doesn’t work and is just a waste of money.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They can’t now, as Viacom has them locked into it.

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

      I’m surprised to see Rampage show starting right after Impact tonight. Obviously, it makes sense, but his match is in a few weeks. I wonder if they will make him return to Impact afterwards.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Considering he was signed to a TNA contract as well, I’d hope so.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, Storm and Gunner’s first defense will be Sunday. 4 months and they haven’t had a televised defense!

    • The Breaker

      Creative should be ashamed. That is unforgivable.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Not only that, but Chavo and Hernandez never got their return match thanks to the BFG Series.

        • The Breaker

          TNA has a history of screwing up their secondary titles. The TV title has fallen into the Abyss, the X-Division has been in and out of relevance, the Knockout Tag Titles were ignored into oblivion, and the TNA Tag Titles are just props.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh and lets not forget the KOs only have 5 active roster members! That means we are seeing 60% of the roster in the triple threat Sunday!

          • David Jr.

            I wonder what Gail Kim thinks of that, all that hard work her and Kharma did to put it on the map, Now it’s worse than the Divas Division.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’d hope she is ashamed of it. But I also understand why she stays. She has some serious job security now!

          • David Jr.

            She could always get a cooking show, if she didn’t want to wrestle anymore.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            True, Irvine has some pull at Food Network!

          • The Breaker

            I think a lot of that has to do with circumstances outside of their control though.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            They have released 8 KOs in the last year and a half. That isn’t entirely out of their control.

          • The Breaker

            True. And many of them are some of the most talented female wrestlers in the business, too. I was mainly thinking about the pregnancies and injuries before.

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

        Creative should be ashamed about a lot more than just Storm and Gunner.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I still can’t get over how obvious they made those empty seats visible.

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

      I can’t get it out of my mind!

      • Alex Gallardo

        There’s just a set of bright red seats they can capture anyone’s attention.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Velvet, you are wasted upon the pathetic mess that is Fail Sabin.

    • Alex Gallardo

      How times has he torn his ACL?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Twice, once in each knee.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Maybe his body is telling him something.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m sorry, but I don’t really like Ledi Tapa. I like my main event wrestlers big and strong and my female wrestlers small and beautiful.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A small quote from my predicts:

      Lei’D Tapa is just the absolute worst worker I think I have seen in the last 5 years. She is sloppier than Ryback on his worst day, moves like a female Khali, and has the emotiveness of a rock wall.

      • The Breaker

        You think she’s worse than Eva Marie?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I do. And that is saying something. Eva Marie is just learning. Lei’D is a second generation star who has been wrestling actively for 2 years.

          • The Breaker

            Good point. So then why in the world is she signed to TNA?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Because she probably works cheap, and TNA likes that.

          • The Breaker

            I guess they’re looking at the KO Division in terms of quantity over quality at this point. There’s really no justifying it though.

          • David Jr.

            Also probably because she looks scary too.

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

          I do, because Tapa comes from a wrestling family, has a lot more training and is still dangerous. Also, she’s much stronger, so more dangerous.

      • Alex Gallardo

        We need more girls like Gail Kim, Brooke, etc. Ladies who can wrestle,but also look good.

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

        And I just wrote in the BZ –

        Possibly building for what they hope
        will be another fantastic run between Kim and the monster of the
        Knockouts? Sorry, but Tapa can’t hold a candle to Kong.

        • Chinadoll

          All I can say is, give her time she got lots of learning to do. her matches in OVW are pretty decent..

      • Chinadoll

        No, she’s not Lacey Von Erich was worst worker in TNA history, she couldn’t wrestle nor could she sell her moves.. the only reason they hired her was because she was beautiful & paired her with Rayne /Sky in the TBP’s 2.0

        • Jesse Sherwood

          But at least Lacey had that and she did get slightly better as time went on. LeiD has had another 6 months of experience since we last saw her and she looks worse than she did then!

  • Braxton

    Weren’t they in Tulsa last week?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes Braxton. This is a taped episode. And welcome to the Watch Party!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    FAIL SABIN!

    • The Breaker

      I just don’t like the cowardly heel types. If they’re always looking weak then I just can’t take them seriously at all.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Same here Breaker. And Sabin makes it worse because he had the Anderson flip associated with it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Velvet nearly loses her dress!

    • Alex Gallardo

      That would have probably got the crowd alive again.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It would have gotten me alive, that’s for sure!

        • David Jr.

          Too much Information, Jesse.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sorry, very true. I’ve been up too long. Fussy 2 year old last night. Teething sucks!

        • Alex Gallardo

          LOL. I don’t think about that stuff in wrestling, but a naked Velvet Sky would probably get TNA’s highest ratings.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sick Springboard DDT by Sabin!

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

    Completely off subject, but tomorrow I get to go watch Tony Atlas give an anti-bullying talk at an elementary school!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Awesome! Be A Star!

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

        This is something Tony is doing separate from the E. He’s working a local show to help a high school drama club, and doing talks all day tomorrow in that elementary school. Really back woods Maine, but Tony is huge on helping the locals, and it’s in Cousin Larry’s hometown. Larry was Fanadango’s trainer, so I’m going to write about it, take some pictures, and help out where needed.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Now that is awesome! Tony seems to be a much more mellow person than Punk painted him in his DVD.

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

            Tony is a bit of a strange man, but has always been lovely when we’ve talked. He’s great with the kids, and always gives his all – whether before a show hanging out with a few fans, or in the ring entertaining.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Coquina Clutch for the win!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hardy can bring the ladder as a weapon, but he better not think about using it to grab the title!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bad Influence claiming the bounty! But their EGOs were just a bit too big!

  • David Jr.

    So Jesse, are you gonna get to 5000 comments tonight?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      How far am I? I didn’t even realize I was close!

      • David Jr.

        You currently stand at 4979 and counting.

  • The Breaker

    Hey look, it’s a promo for Hell in a Cell featuring R-Truth!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I don’t have a problem with TNA using former WWE stars. It’s just all how they use them, and they’ve really changed Derrick Batemen.

    • David Jr.

      I don’t get the 3rd though, was there a Ethan Carter II or is it because or RG3.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well I wouldn’t know about that.

      • The Breaker

        TNA is just cashing in on RGIII. I don’t get why they think they have to do that.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yep!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So EC3 will debut at BFG! I can’t wait, as I loved Derrick Bateman!

    • The Breaker

      His gimmick kind of reminds me of a cross between MNM era John Morrison and Tyler Breeze from NXT (he’s a narcissistic model).

      • Jesse Sherwood

        With some MVP thrown in.

        • The Breaker

          Yeah. I had the same thought before.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    It’s 9:20 and we are getting the main event already. I hope we will get some good time here, as I won’t be able to stand 20 minutes of promos to close the show.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Well if Bully’s talking I don’t mind. Just don’t throw Dixie in there too.

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

        You know they will!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    While we have a lull in the show, I will be opening this week’s Breakdown with a Q&A section a la Ask WNW this week! If there was anything you ever wanted to pick my brain for my opinion of, ask me here!

    • David Jr.

      My question would be, Where does John Cena rank in importance in WWE history?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Hmmm… That’s a fun one! I will definitely be using that one!

        • David Jr.

          Well I will definitely be reading Breakdown this week, though I always do.

        • Josh Melton

          Thank You, will Randy Orton be world champion at HITC :)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Josh, that one will be answered in my Predicts next weekend!

        • Josh Melton

          When will Jeff Hardy return to WWE?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Honestly, I don’t think he will return for at least another couple of years. Hardy is comfortable in TNA, and their schedule helps keep him much healthier than if he was in WWE. If he does go back, I see it as a short “retirement” run for maybe a year to a year and a half.

    • The Breaker

      What do you think about WWE unifying the two top titles? I can’t remember if you’ve said your opinion before.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I have, but I don’t mind answering that again!

        • The Breaker

          Saying you want the brand extension back is kind of a cop out though. :P

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I never wanted it to end, but now that it has, I will frame my answer accordingly.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Perhaps Magnus might turn heel at BFG.

    • The Breaker

      I hope he doesn’t. I think it would be a mistake. He’s made good strides as a face and if he’s really going to lead the company in the future, they should let him become reach the top of his game as a face before turning.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so. He is much better as a heel. Him working for cheap pops just doesn’t sit right with me.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I would have to see how it plays out, but I would prefer him to be a babyface.

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

          I’m on the fence on this one. I’ll have to see how it plays out, but Mags is a great heel.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Magnus vs. Sting has been possibly the most subtle build for a program we have had in some time. They are going to tell one amazing story in that ring Sunday!

    • The Breaker

      In terms of storyline I am most interested in that match.

    • Josh Melton

      Sounds good, I think this gives Sting the chance to put him over, and the chance for Magnus to further prove himself as a singles competitor. next year is the year when he is crowned World Champion.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I like how they brought up their match at BFG 2011.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It felt right. And I think that they have done more with Roode and Angle in these two weeks than they have done with most of the rest of the card!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I’m looking forward to their match. Especially considering how good Kurt look now.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Kurt’s physique surprised me! Dude took his time off and really used it to improve himself, in more ways than one.

  • The Breaker

    Angle will definitely beat Roode.

    • Josh Melton

      Everybody can see that coming lol

  • David Jr.

    Why doesn’t Sting or Samoa Joe come out to help him? Isn’t Angle still part of Main Event Mafia? Or is it just because Joe and Sting have other feuds?

    • The Breaker

      MEM is basically finished.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That’s what I’d guess. Could we see an Angle heel turn here soon? Sting started the Mafia because he had no help, Angle could splinter off because the MEM didn’t help him.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Dammit why couldn’t have that commercial been longer? I want to listen to more Miley.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Someone just needs to get you a cd!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I already downloaded it from Itunes. I just can’t listen to it during a promo, I hope Dixie starts talking so I’ll have some time to listen.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, with her out there, I’d say you have a good 5 minutes of listening!

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s enough to finish the song.

    • The Breaker

      They have YouTube for that.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I can’t listen to music and wrestling at the same time.

        • The Breaker

          With the guys on announce, you wouldn’t really be missing much.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I do listen to her during the matches, just not the promos and segments.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Contract signing! Who wants to bet it gets physical?

    • The Breaker

      With that briefcase full of cash as incentive, it’ll have to!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Heck, I’d try for $50K! I could pay off a house with that!

    • David Jr.

      Now i’m picturing Bully Ray, AJ Styles, Jeremy Borash, Dixie Carter and Brooke in Workout clothes, while ONJ sings.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bully has a Big Johnny in his throat!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    He’s shouting and really straining to get this promo out. Bully Ray is one of the most dedicated guys in TNA!

    • David Jr.

      I think this was your 5000 comment.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Good! Woohoo!

        • David Jr.

          Congratulations on hitting 5000.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Thanks!

    • Josh Melton

      Bully Ray is amazing wish WWE could have him..

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He burned that bridge years ago. Triple H probably won’t ever let him return.

  • Alex Gallardo

    THAT was a good promo by Bully.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That was a classic promo. Way old school, harkens back to the territory days for me!

    -Bully to AJ

    Hey Cena, THAT’S how you do a Star Wars reference!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AJ Cussed?! WHOA!!!

    • Josh Melton

      Lol

  • The Breaker

    AJ sounded pretty lousy in his response, with the way he paused before using the swear.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He doesn’t use them, so it was something he even had to work up. It felt good though!

      • The Breaker

        That makes sense, but it looked bad compared to the intensity of Bully’s promo.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m looking forward to BFG. But goodnight for tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Alex!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Got to love the fake money! It had Dixie’s face on it!

      It did? I missed that!

    • The Breaker

      I wasn’t watching in HD, so I couldn’t tell.

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

    Just a reminder guys, I won’t be here for SD tomorrow night.

    • David Jr.

      So I’ll ask this now, did you watch Haven last friday? If yes, did you like that ending?

    • The Breaker

      Aww that’s too bad. Now no one will want to show up!
