Music hits and here comes Dixie Carter. She walks down the ramp with a red shirt and black and brown skirt. She gets in the ring. She thanks everyone and they boo. She said AJ Styles showed his lack of vision last week. She served AJ the world and he threw it right in her face. No one walks out on Dixie Carter! The crowd boos more. From here on out, AJ doesn’t exist to her. He is no longer the World Champion. AJ can steal the title and car. Dixie doesn’t want them. That is her little treat. He can go trick and treating and tell everyone in the trailer park he is champion, but he isn’t. He is just the same like every other little boy with fake titles tonight. It’s just a costume. She needs a real World Champion. They need the skills to make this company bigger. Dixie announces an 8 man tournament. They are all former World Champions. She announces seven of them. James Storm.

He walks down and Dixie says she will steal a line from Ray: Shut the music off. Ray tries to stop her but Dixie announces a Gauntlet Match tonight to determine the 8th person. Ray asks how he is going to win the title if he isn’t in this tournament?! Ray says Dixie is smart but he has to ask… Do you know who I am? Dixie says she does as he is the man who lost twice to AJ Styles. He is the one who caused all of this. Ray says he is not to blame. The first time was Earl Hebner. The second time was Mr. Anderson. Just then, the lights go out and Mr. Anderson’s music hits. He runs down the ramp and slides in the ring. Dixie leaves and Ken and Ray square off punch by punch.

    Sorry this is up late! It was my one responsibility, and I got sucked into my kids coming home with a BUCKET of candy!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I hid from those kids. Some of those kids can be annoying with how much they bang on my door.

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

        We had a couple come by, and they were all sweet. It’s pouring out here. No, I mean my kids came in with a bucket of candy. They went to their grands, and Sam went to her mother’s house, so she was dumped upon by them. Sam rarely eats any of this, but the crazy woman dumps tons of it on her, then sends her back here to deal with it.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well it was raining for most of the day where I was. Yet as soon as I get home the sun is out. I don’t have any kids so I don’t go trick or treating, I’m all about the parties.

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

            I have a herd of kids, and the herd continues to grow as we end up with kids who need a place to live. I don’t see as I’ll be at a Halloween party for years, but I also start NaNoWriMo at midnight, so I have to be someplace I can focus on my writing.

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

    Hello, welcome to the WNW TNA Impact OTP! Who’s excited about Impact this week? Who’s excited about Impact? Who’s actually here and not out eating way too much candy?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Impact has awful luck. First they had to be on during the 4th of July and now Halloween. I’m just glad I’m on this site, the IWC was really been rude to me earlier today. I guess they didn’t get a lot of candy for Halloween.

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

        What happened?

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well someone called me a Debbie Downer after saying Miley was a better twerker than Brooke Tessmocher, which is fine because it wasn’t meant to be mean. Then I said I wouldn’t enjoy the video anyway because I’m gay, following that someone called me a queer and said he wanted to burn every gay person. Then he said I should go suck Hogan’s 12 inch python and other immature and outdated insults.

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

            Yeah, excuse my language, but that’s absolute bullshit.

          • Alex Gallardo

            It is. The comments ended up being deleted though. And people wonder why I have such a hard time accepting homophobia.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Speaking of buckets of candy, I’m running behind because my wife wanted to hit the Mall in Jonesboro’s Trunk or Treat. She can’t pass up a good coupon for clothes!

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

      I’m cheap, but I enjoy hunting for the bargains. Halloween is not the time to be doing that.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, the kids got candy too. Target gave out full size bars!

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

          Dang! But Sam has a bucket of candy from her mother and her grands, and Ashlyn went out with her and SF, so they had a blast, and Ellie and I stayed home and stayed dry.

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

    Hey everyone! I’m here and ready to rumble!

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

      Yay! Alex made it! WooHoo!

      • David Jr.

        I’m here, I was sad that I missed Raw’s Live Party.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Just be glad that you’re here with us now.

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

            Exactly! I’m glad you’re here!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Aw thank you! I’m glad you’re all here too. None of my friends watch wresting.

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

            Hey, be nice! You know I was agreeing with you about David!

          • Alex Gallardo

            LOL I know. But what you do without your favorite Hogan mark here every Thursday?

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

            True, I guess you need a bit of leeway.

          • David Jr.

            My favorite non-WNW staff to chat with.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Why thank you. I sure don’t hear that a lot in the IWC.

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

            I think you’ve been hanging out with the wrong members of the IWC.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I have. I still have you guys though.

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

            That’s what I mean, not all of the IWC is bad, you just had to find the right corner of the IWC to hang out at.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well as much as I dislike them I did miss them when I left for a little while. There’s only a couple of them that are really rude though.

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

            That’s the way it is with most groups. A few bad apples can ruin it for the rest.

          • David Jr.

            Had no Internet last Monday, but now I do.

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

            Yikes, how did you survive?

          • David Jr.

            I don’t know. But I just moved so that’s the reason I had no service.

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

            That’s a great reason, but still too much to deal with.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m telling you TNA has awful luck as I’ve said before. First they had to go up against the 4th of July and now Halloween. I just hope a lot more people are home at this time.

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

        I agree. Very tough luck. Don’t forget Thanksgiving… that’s Thursday every year though.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Oh yeah, maybe TNA should think about changing days. Let’s just hope TNA doesn’t get a 0.78 again.

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

          But TNA screws themselves on Thanksgiving. They could put on a solid show, but instead they break out that horrid costume!

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

            I just find that too funny. Eric Young likes it. Haha

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

            I just love EY, especially the year he was ‘servicing’ everyone at the party. Or was that a Christmas party?

      • David Jr.

        Where I’m from won’t be a problem, very little are trick or treating.

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

          Most of the trick or treating is done here, and the kids are upstairs reading Harry Potter.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well since it was raining for most of the day where I was so I thought I wouldn’t have to deal with them. As soon as I come home the sun is out and all the kids come out too. I had to turn off my lights and hide.

            I feel glad for you. I hate when some of those kids bang on the door.

            I actually took my god daughter trick or treating.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well I don’t have any kids to take out for trick or treating. I go to parties.

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

            My oldest daughter Ellie comes up to visit on Thursdays, so her boyfriend shut off all the lights, locked the door and went to cleaning his work bench in the basement.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      *Hits Alex B. with a Bionic Elbow*

  • Alex Gallardo

    I think they’re already doing good with the AJ Styles storyline just by having him show up on other shows. They just need to keep him off for the next few months.

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

    Why is Anderson all fuzzy?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Soft Anderson
      Warm Anderson
      With a little bit of fuzz
      Happy Anderson
      Sleep Anderson
      With a serious buzz!

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

        *smile*
        Thanks!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          *Bows* My pleasure milady!

  • Benjamin GM

    Gunner and Storm really need a name for themselves.

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

      I agree, and have felt that way for a while.

      • David Jr.

        Beer and Guns?

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

          I like that, and better than the mostly dirty ideas I’ve come up with.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Beer Gunner and Gun Storm are my thoughts.

          • Benjamin GM

            The Alcoholics……wait that’s a group think?

  • Alex Gallardo

    I keep telling myself to only stare at Gunner’s chest now that I’ve really noticed his back tattoos.

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

      I have trouble not drooling over all of Gunner!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I like him as wrestler. But it can be hard trying to ignore his body which I’m normally good at doing with all the other wrestlers.

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

          He’s not my normal ‘type’ when it comes to drooling over wrestlers, but he is yummy. Might help that he’s running with Storm who is very enjoyable.

  • Benjamin GM

    Boo. Why the Bromans were chosen to be tag champs is beyond me.

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

      I don’t get it, but the booking has been very strange lately.

      • Benjamin GM

        To say the lease lol. I think JR said something that TNA was basically pushing the reset button at BFG. Hopefully we’ll see Gunner and Storm regain them in do time. The tag division is just so slim though. :(

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

          I think EY and Joe/Aby could be quite good if they were allowed to be more than silly. BI is strong when they’re not silly. But Bromance is terrible!

  • Alex Gallardo

    You can tell that TNA knows they might not get good ratings tonight. They’ve been trying to throw big matches and even telling their fans to at least DVR it.

  • Benjamin GM

    No more title shots for Sting……….PLEASE!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Finally home! Miss anything good?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Gunner’s back tattoos.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, dang! There goes the best part of the show!

        • Alex Gallardo

          It’s the worst part for me. I have to keep telling myself not to look at his back and focus on him in the ring because I really do like him as a wrestler.

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

            Sometimes you just have to sit back and drool.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Maybe I’ll try that. You can only hold it in for so long.

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

    Christy Hemme’s costume tonight!!!! :D

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

      I’ve not really seen her. What is she wearing?

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

        Some type of maid costume it seems. Not sure, haha. I know she has a little tiny hat on.

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

          I have to say I caught Matt Morgan’s attention at an event by wearing one. We have quite a convo about Daffney because of it.

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

          I just saw her, she’s the Mad Hatter! 10/6 in her hat.

  • Benjamin GM

    Hopefully Abyss will be back for good. There’s Bad Influence. Now my night is almost complete.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Bad Influence is great. They’ve been great with their gimmicks and Russo was right, Chris was too focused on putting on 5 star matches when he should have been caring about his gimmick, now look where he is with his character.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Norv AGAIN? BAKA!!!

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

      He sells well? He works for cheap?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Norv DRAWS.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Groans!

    • David Jr.

      Is his name Norv Turner?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Norv Fernum

        • David Jr.

          Oh good, I thought Norv Turner still had a job in the NFL.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I know this joke won’t be liked too much, but Ethan’s opponent is almost as skinny as CM Punk.

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

      *kicks in the slats*

      Spike, maybe, but not Punk!

      • Alex Gallardo

        LOL I knew the joke wouldn’t have been liked. All three of them need to hit the gym though.

  • Benjamin GM

    I’m alittle confused. So the best way to make EC3 seem legit is to throw a bunch of jobbers at him?

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

      What kills me is how boring he is, even though we KNOW he has personality. How to kill the shows, throw more boring in?

      • Benjamin GM

        I know I know. I guess it beats his last gimmick or what was suppose to be I think some sort of USA Guy in WWE?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Aye. But that was at least funny, which plays to his strong suits. This is just a slowly burning sack of feces as it stands now!

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

            Burning poo sometimes has more personality.

          • Benjamin GM

            Or watching paint dry. :)

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

            Or watching grass grow!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Or changing dirty diapers all night!

          • Benjamin GM

            That would just suck lol.

          • David Jr.

            It seems like sometimes I do that all day.

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

            I don’t envy you! I moved in with Stacy after Sam was out of diapers!

  • Benjamin GM

    There’s my girl ODB. I hate this. I had to deactivate my other account just to add my actual name.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BAM! I love some ODBEY! First things I get to watch tonight puts a smile on my face!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, are we really supposed to believe that Daniels got changed that quickly?

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

      You mean Kaz?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Aye! *Slaps self* Stupid brain!

  • Nostaljack

    Correct-a-mundo? Really, Taz? LOL!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, it could be worse. It could be Taz and Cole bickering!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, it could be worse. It could be Taz and Cole bickering!

  • Mike Love

    If they can get a man of that structure to job to EC3 I would like to put in my application for next week’s Impact because my god.

  • David Jr.

    Why do they call this a gauntlet match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because they failed Rule #1.

      • Mike Love

        You don’t talk about Fight Club…?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sorry, should have specified. Wizard’s First Rule: People are stupid.

  • Benjamin GM

    Anyone want to bet that Sting is going to get that last spot?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Who is all in the gauntlet?

      • Benjamin GM

        Not sure. Guess the rest of the wrestlers that wasn’t a world champion aside from Sting. Love to see Daniels in it.

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

        I don’t think gauntlet match means what they think it means.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, they got it right one night this year, so we know they know the meaning!

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

            Brief moment of insanity, and now they’re back to their normal zaniness!

    • Alex Gallardo

      We still have to see who else is coming into the gauntlet. I’m crossing my fingers for Magnus.

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

        And it would push the Mags/Sting thing.

        • David Jr.

          Magnus would be my guess.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Makes perfect logical sense, which means it is highly unlikely in TNA as of now.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Things in their creative have changed as of late.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye. Eric Bischoff is no longer working directly with the rest of the team, so things may get better. But if last week and BFG are any indications, then we are in trouble.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s true. We could be seeing new owners though so who knows.

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

            Believe new owners when I see it.

          • Alex Gallardo

            The rumors are a little believable, who knows though?

  • Mike Love

    I’m calling for Abyss in this.

    • Benjamin GM

      Aslong as it’s not Joseph.

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

        EY said Joe wasn’t there, and Halloween is the night for monsters.

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

        EY said Joe wasn’t there, and Halloween is the night for monsters.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          He’s going to get them…

        • Benjamin GM

          Ah gotcha. That totally went over my head.

  • Nostaljack

    I don’t mean to be rude but is anyone over Taz as a commentator yet?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I just put my headphones in ears and turn on music during the matches. I haven’t heard Tazz commentate for a while.

      • Benjamin GM

        Botchamania has some good insight on him.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I love that series.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I love that series.

          • Benjamin GM

            Me to me to lol.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ve been over him for over a year. He purely sucks. He was good in his early days of WWE, but he seems like he is as relevant as a JBL reference. Dated and unlikely to connect with the audience.

      • Benjamin GM

        This could all just seem like a bad dream if they would some how some way get JR. Dear TNA…

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Or heck, even Tony Schavonie! He is the only man I have ever heard make Tenay sound good!

          • Benjamin GM

            I miss Schavonie. :( Does that sound weird?

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

            No, I miss him as well. I thought I was one of the only ones!

    • Mike Love

      I’ve grown old of him, yeah.

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

      So, so over him! Done!

    • Mike Love

      I’ve been over Taz as a member of A&8 since their inauguration. He has no presence of interdependence through them all he does is high-five them and give them a good game slap on the ass.

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

        The thing is that Taz is so much better when he’s on his feet. When he was outside a few months ago, he wasn’t bad, but put him behind that desk and he pissed me off to no end.

        • Mike Love

          I’m not too familiar with the wrestling status of Taz but why haven’t they used him in a match or at least a beat-down?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            His neck is so F*ed that a bump can kill him. Same issues as Edge.

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

            Further, he’s fully admitted that he’s too much of a pussy to get neck surgery, so he won’t be bumping ever again.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed. Give him freedom to “shoot from the hip” for a promo, and he is gold. Having to follow a script or work off of Tenay… BLECH!

  • Nostaljack

    Who’s under Mannix’s hood? Anyone know?

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

      TJ Perkins, right?

      • Nostaljack

        Ah. Cool! Thanks, Kendra!

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

          They need to get the hood off him and let him emote.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      TJ Perkins, a stand out from ROH.

  • Nostaljack

    JUMPIN’ JEFF FARMER!!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I knew it.

  • Benjamin GM

    I thought a gauntlet match was based on one wrestler fighting a bunch of others at different times? All they need to do is start throwing people over the rope and just call it a damn battle royal. Is it me or did Magnus not get many cheers to?

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

      They fight until one is eliminated, then another comes in. So yes, this a more of a rumble.

      • Benjamin GM

        Would it be to hard just to call it that then?

        • David Jr.

          WWE probably has Rumble copyrighted.

          • Benjamin GM

            What about Battle Royal?

      • David Jr.

        At least it’s not a Reverse Battle Royal.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He is in the beginning stages of a heel turn. And the crowd is apathetic to him thanks to it.

      • Benjamin GM

        Sounds about right.

  • Nostaljack

    Marty Jannetty! OK, Taz just went up a little for that reference. Jannetty rules!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Now that we see who is out there, I have to say Magnus has to be the winner. Knux makes no logical sense, as do Manik, EY and BI. And Sting shouldn’t be in the title picture anymore, because of the stip from the Bully Ray match at Slam.

  • Alex Gallardo

    YES! Now Magnus is even closer to winning the TNA title.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ll go ahead and call it now. He will win the tourney and AJ will come back for the unification match. Seems odd that he is the only non-champion in this tourney.

      • Alex Gallardo

        That would be awesome.

  • Benjamin GM

    And the feud slowly continues between Mag/Sting

  • Nostaljack

    Whoa. No Jason Hervey. Interesting…

  • Nostaljack

    Yes! A WWE commercial during TNA. LOL!

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

    WWE 2K14 commercial during Impact! Great job Spike TV!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I love that game. I’ve been playing it since the day I’ve got it for hours.

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

        I know advertising money is advertising money, but Spike showing that during an episode of Impact is total crap.

        • Alex Gallardo

          It is. TNA should be trying to make their own game again. But I guess all Spike saw was money.

      • The Breaker

        I’ve heard it’s very good, can’t wait until I can get a deal for it!

        • Alex Gallardo

          It’s great. You’ll have a very fun time playing it.

        • Alex Gallardo

          It’s great. You’ll have a very fun time playing it.

          • The Breaker

            Awesome. The WrestleMania mode looks great.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Right now, the best Black Friday deal I have found is Gamestop for $40. I’m betting Walmart has it for $25.

          • The Breaker

            I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’ll be posting updates in here and Raw Watch Parties on the prices I find.

          • The Breaker

            Thanks Jesse!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No problem. I am a cheap *** gamer, so I rarely pay full price for anything.

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

            And, as usual, keep me up to date on these things as well.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No prob. I wouldn’t take you as a current generation gamer though!

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

            Not usually, but this looks like fun! Besides, no one will play WrestleFest with me!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Last year’s AE Mode was fun, but there was little replayability. This year’s seems like it might pose a challenge with the 30 years of Mania mode and the Streak mode.

          • The Breaker

            Same here. There are only a few games that I just can’t wait to play.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aye, and most of the ones I play like that are ones few people have heard of, like the Shin Megami Tensei series and Disgaea. Basically, anything by Atlus or NIS America.

          • The Breaker

            I know those! They obviously don’t have the popularity of CoD, Assassin’s Creed, or GTA but there is a strong dedicated following for those types of games.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That is my kind of game. Grinding RPGs that make you plan your every move. The tactical side really helps stimulate my thought processes.

          • The Breaker

            So you’re more into the turn-based strategy type than compared to real-time battles?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I like the ATB systems of say Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest and other games like that. But I have gravitated towards the strategy genre because of the workout it gives my mind. Not to mention that Final Fantasy has really fallen over the years. The last one I played and liked the whole thing was FFIX. As for RTS games, I am a fan of StarCraft and the older WarCraft games as well as Command and Conquer, but haven’t played them in a while.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, Final Fantasy hasn’t been very impressive recently. From everything I’ve seen of FFXV, it does look pretty interesting though. Never really got into StarCraft because of how intimidating it is, and the fact that I don’t have a true gaming PC. Do you play Fire Emblem at all?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I do. Got to love a game with perma-death!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Got to love when your superiors advertise their game on your programming!

  • Benjamin GM

    Tapa is still OVW womens champ. Wonder if she’s in TNA temporarily?

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

      OVW is basically TNA’s training grounds.

      • Benjamin GM

        True but I would think if she was there on a more permanent basis, she’d drop the title. Guess we’ll see.

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

          WWE doesn’t strip the NXT champs who are with the WWE. And TNA has a much lighter schedule, so I understand her retaining.

  • The Breaker

    Hey everyone! I’m arriving late to the party but I’ve finally caught up!

    I’m hoping that the talk about AJ defending the TNA World Title at indie events is true. It’s been too long since anything has really excited me in TNA.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He defends it tomorrow in AAA against Judas Mesias!

      • The Breaker

        Great! That’s so cool. TNA could do a better job with this angle than WWE did if they play it right.

  • Nostaljack

    She. Is. Awful.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lei’d is a female Khali.

  • Benjamin GM

    Wheel of Dixie……..COME ON!

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

      Yeah, we’ve never seen THAT in wrestling!

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

        Still comparing?

        • Nostaljack

          Yes, TNA is.

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

            Same with WWE with WCW. Time to move on.

          • Nostaljack

            I would if TNA would just be content to be themselves instead of copying WWE nearly every chance they get. No one will take them seriously until they just relax and be content being themselves.

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

            If we like to talk about copying, maybe WWE should try to copy and show their divas how the Knockouts fight in the ring.

          • Nostaljack

            Why? The Knockouts aren’t exactly setting the world on fire either. That’s the area that they could really shine in…and they did for a while. Once Hogan and Bischoff showed up, they quit caring about them and now the Knockouts are more of a waste of time than the Divas.

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

            True, but I’d love to see the Divas working the way the Knockouts used to work.

          • Nostaljack

            Oh yeah, the Knockouts *were* great. Now, they’re nothing to watch.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, when your roster is only 5 deep…

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

          I try not to, but something like that, and the way she acted like it’s all her, just grates on my nerves.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sounds like yet another perverse Dixie device!

        • Benjamin GM

          Member peeps it is Dixie Land. *shakes head*

  • Benjamin GM

    I think ODB has that Bride of Frankenstein thing going on?

  • Mike Love

    Dixie Carter is so bad at promotions Apple just lost stock because she was holding an iPhone.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      BURN!

      • Mike Love

        I can’t stand her.

    • Benjamin GM

      Nice.

  • David Jr.

    Is Christy Hemme suppose to be sexy Mad Hatter?

    • The Breaker

      That’s what it looks like to me.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir!

      • David Jr.

        She should have gone as Sexy Hulk Hogan.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          NO!!!! I just got that image from Yahoo out of my head!

          • David Jr.

            Oh come on it comes with a free panty.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            So everyone else can see what we are talking about. THIS is what someone thought would make a good costume this year!

  • Nostaljack

    Is it rude to say that Tapa looks like Jimmy Snuka in drag?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, as I have said much worse!

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

      Snuka in his heyday, or Snuka now? Big difference!

      • Nostaljack

        Then. He’s a very lovable cadaver now.

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

          And about as vacant as one! I feel so bad for him!

          • Nostaljack

            Sadly, I agree. He should have packed it in a bit sooner.

      • Benjamin GM

        There is this hilarious old promo you can find that Snuka did when he was in WWF when he just literally goes crazy. LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING!

  • Benjamin GM

    So and I hate to make the comparison but Gail Kim is TNA’s AJ Lee and Tapa is Tamina? It just comes off like to to me. Of course their different characters but there’s a bit of similarities….somewhat.

  • Benjamin GM

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is. This is a blatant rip off.

    • Nostaljack

      You’re totally right. Same basic thing. Again, TNA needs to quit watching what WWE is doing and find their own thing.

      • Benjamin GM

        That maybe hard since Hogan isn’t there to hold her hand.

    • The Breaker

      At least Gail didn’t do her own version of the pipe bombshell.

  • Mike Love

    I wouldn’t mind being in that submission GIGGITY

  • Nostaljack

    Ugly Thesz press!

  • The Breaker

    It’s good to see that TNA is keeping up the continuity with Bad Influence coming back from the ring to continue their investigation.

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

      BI usually has the best continuity. Each week they follow through better than most others. Makes me think they actually have a great deal of influence in their characters.

      • The Breaker

        Quite possibly. I don’t think anyone in TNA could be writing 90% of the things they say! It’s way too creative.

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

          Agreed!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, the Sherlock Holmes outfits are BI’s Throwback Thursday attire this week? I like!

  • Benjamin GM

    It may just be me but it seems Bad Influence has been one if not the most entertaining parts of the show.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They always are. Their characters are so over the top that you can’t help but believe they are really like this!

      • Benjamin GM

        I was lucky enough to meet both and I can tell Daniels is a class act. Very cool and down to earth. Wish I could upload my pics with him. :(

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

          The one live TNA show I saw, Daniels stole the show.

          • Benjamin GM

            I think he does that for any show he’s in. Whether it’s ROH or TNA, he has so much charisma I can’t begin to tell you. :)

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

            Some guys were chanting “DUI” because it was right after his arrest, and he worked off that something fierce! He flipped them off, waved his bum at them, and really worked it!

          • Benjamin GM

            That sounds to funny. Wish I was there.

    • The Breaker

      Spot-on comment.

  • Mike Love

    Another question: why hasn’t TNA tried continuing a video game franchise?

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

      I’m willing to guess that the answer is money, but that’s just a guess.

      • Mike Love

        I was assuming that answer before I decided to ask, they need to get more advertising out and given gaming is a huge part of our cultures anymore they could dive into that more. Even through an app or some sort.

        • Benjamin GM

          It’s definitely money. Don’t forget they just did a bloodletting on talent not to long ago and now have to go back to Universal because they overspent by going on the road which was another one of Hogan’s bright ideas.

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

      The first one didn’t sell. Not worth it.

      • Nostaljack

        How could it? Relatively speaking, no one knows TNA exists.

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

          That’s what I mean!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The first one moved less than 500,000 units, so it was a commercial flop. Not to mention it garnered less than a 5 average score out of 10 in reviews. Awful hit detection, clunky controls, and confusing match types to people who have never watched TNA didn’t help.

      • David Jr.

        It also gave us Suicide.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          True, and the story for him in the game was really good. That was the one area the game excelled.

  • Benjamin GM

    Speaking of……..

  • Mike Love

    Plot Twist: Hulk Hogan comes out as Abyss’s #1 fan.

  • The Breaker

    I know that Bad Influence is above the comparison, but the bit they’ve been doing tonight reminds me of Santino’s search for the identity of the anonymous RAW GM.

    • Benjamin GM

      Maybe a bit….but there are still far more entertaining.

      • Nostaljack

        Santino is amazing and always entertaining to me.

        • Benjamin GM

          Yeah everyones entertaining in their own way. Guess I’m just a bigger BI fan.

  • Nostaljack

    Their jokes are incredibly lame. Sorry.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They are off their mark here. Normally, they’re a riot!

  • Nostaljack

    Eric Young is absolutely the most unappreciated individual working for TNA.

    • Alex Gallardo

      He’s a much better comedy character than someone like Santino.

      • Nostaljack

        He can also work his butt off.

        • Alex Gallardo

          But his gimmick is old and he has no way to show that he actually good for more than that.

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

            But he did when he was heel. He showed so much then, but he seems much happier as the lovable goofball, besides, he gets to get all touchy-feely with ODB this way!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I was talking about Santino.

          • Nostaljack

            He does. He just won’t ever be taken seriously in that role.

  • The Breaker

    Now if TNA really is watching WWE for storyline inspiration, they would have Abyss pledge allegiance to Team Dixie.

    • Nostaljack

      LOL! I was thinking the same thing as I watched it. I was kinda waiting for Abyss to turn his mask over to Dixie.

  • Benjamin GM

    Dixie just seems so out of place.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hardy vs. Fail Sabin in FMM? HECK YEAH!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    He’s off the chain!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I loved his heel run with the TNA title.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Roode’s run was arguably one of the best one’s in TNA History. He made that title look more prestigious than either World Championship in WWE.

        • Benjamin GM

          Punk did a pretty good job with his reign. I think the WWE title is always going to whind up with either Cena or Orton some how, some way and this could take the value away to some.

          World title is a bit different but thats a different conversation.

  • Benjamin GM

    Roode is presently one of the best and at times underrated but everytime he comes out with his robe, for some reason it reminds me of Terry Taylor.

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

      To me he’s a young Trip, but in all the good ways.

      • Benjamin GM

        For some reason that’s what’s been in the back my mind for a while now. They look as if they could related.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          It’s a real shame WWE didn’t get him when his contract was up. He could have easily been a huge star there. But knowing our luck, he’d have ended up like Low Ki.

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

            I don’t think he would have ended up that way. I really think they would have seen enough in Roode for him to get over, plus I don’t see Roode not getting over.

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

          It’s Roode’s intensity, and how he handles some of his mic work and storylines, as well as his character..

          *sigh* Seems as though people are not reading the Blog Zone, as I’ve mentioned that a number of times.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well sis, we do get new readers every day!

          • Benjamin GM

            I never read blogs from anywhere or anyone. I just never have. I use to write for another site but those days are over.

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

            Why don’t you write any longer?

          • Benjamin GM

            I just lost the passion for it. My views have changed so dramatically over the years with the access to what goes on behind the camera and add to that I come off as pretty cynical just because of how much I know about the politics involved in wrestling and I can’t do nothing about it just eats at me. I didn’t have a site of my own but I just wrote on different places throughout the IWC. I had alot of aspirations and to not get to personal but I was close to training with Lance Storm at one time but then things came to a haul when I got injured.

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

            That really sucks, and I can understand losing your heart for it.

          • Benjamin GM

            Don’t get me wrong, I’ll always be a fan, hect it’s been over 20 years but considering what’s all that happened in that time and just how much the industry changed, it’s just makes it hard not to hold my tongue and speak up at times even if I put my foot in my mouth at times lol. I was told also that I just have a bit to much passion which is why I can come off kinda sinister I guess is the word I’m looking for but in reality it’s just cause I care for the business in general.

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

            I understand the passion, and sticking my foot in my mouth, I’m good at it!

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

            I know, it just feels as though few read the BZ lately. Comments are down, and it seems as though so many people are crankier about TNA than I am!

          • The Breaker

            I still read every week! I don’t comment all the time, but even when I do hardly anyone else joins in.

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

            Thanks Breaker, that actually means a lot.

          • Nostaljack

            Same here, Kendra. There’s probably a lot of reading but not commenting.

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

            Thanks Ed, it is good to know. I think I’ll ask for comments this week, so I know who’s out there reading.

          • The Breaker

            You’re welcome! Both your and Jesse’s blogs are always a great read!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Comments are down across all of the blogs. The only one that is up is Predicts.

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

            We should discuss ideas for that, but that’s another time between you and I.

          • Nostaljack

            It’s kinda hard not to be. The WWE aping is out of control.

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

            It’s gone both ways lately, but TNA has really seemed to steal a lot the past couple weeks.

  • Nostaljack

    Shut up, Taz…please…

  • Nostaljack

    Attitude Adjustment from Roode!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Way to go Brian Hebner. Keep counting while Kurt looks like he is having a seizure.

  • Benjamin GM

    This reminds me of the time when HBK passed out in the middle of the ring but no one knew what was going on. I think it would have sold more if the commentators would just let dead air in.

  • The Breaker

    Where are they going with this Angle storyline?

    • Nostaljack

      Glad I don’t know. The surprise will be nice.

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

        I still don’t like watching Angle like that. He’s in obviously not good shape. His left hand always curls, and his right one shakes, and it seems like he has little control over it. I really wonder what his condition is.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Looks to me like spinal nerve damage from his multiple neck injuries. But that is purely a guess.

      • The Breaker

        I guess it’s just that Angle came back too soon? But that’s what they’re doing with Cena, only it’s kind of the opposite in that Cena is wrestling like he’s superhuman.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope it isn’t a “my career is over” storyline.

      • The Breaker

        Neither do I, especially if it isn’t completely a work.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Impact seemed to by pretty fast to me, let’s just hope they don’t get another low rating because of being on Halloween. I’ll see you all on Smackdown, but goodnight!

    • The Breaker

      It definitely did fly by tonight. I guess that’s a good thing, right? Anyway, goodnight Alex!

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

      Night Alex, see you tomorrow night!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Goodnight Alex!

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

      See you later man!

  • Benjamin GM

    Alright I’m out everyone, I think I might come back for Raw. Not sure who watches SD!?

    Later everyone.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I watch SD, but I’m not in the Parties because I am doing notes for the Breakdown. See you Monday!

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

      I’ll be in the SD OTP tomorrow, as will David and a few others. See you there.

  • Nostaljack

    Sorry I didn’t make all of this but I’m glad for what I got. Despite my moaning, I love wrestling and I must have love for TNA or I wouldn’t be here. I wish them success on their terms, not WWE; that’s all. Night, all!

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

    Jesse, NaNo starts in less than an hour for me, less than two for you. I’m heading to Tim Hortons to start writing with others at midnigh!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night sis! I’m getting started when I awake. Busy morning tomorrow, as Conner has a doctor’s appt.

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

        I’ve always started at midnight, it’s tradition! You and I are going to have a word war all month.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Lol, you’ll win. I’ll probably complete on the 29th!

  • Robert Olley

    Anybody else think the kurt angle stuff is in poor taste?
