Impact Wrestling Results (11/7/13) – Full Metal Mayhem!

Impact Wrestling Results – 11/7/2013
From Cincinnati, Ohio
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Dixie Carter is walking backstage with Pacman Jones. She welcomes him to the arena and says it is glad to have him back. He is glad to be back. Mr. Anderson steps in their way and says he wants a match with Bully. Dixie asks if that is it because she would have to throw him out again. That’s all he wants. Well, that’s it, but Dixie wants him to deliver and take him out. She introduces Ken to Jones. They shake hands and Dixie leaves with her man.

A video plays showing AJ Styles winning the TNA Title at Bound for Glory. He took the title, the car Dixie had for him, and leaves the company. Dixie sets up a tournament to crown a new winner. We will see Chris Sabin vs. Jeff Hardy in a Full Metal Mayhem Match tonight.

The camera shows the arena and the crowd is on their feet cheering. They are ready to kick off the show. The camera then shows Pacman Jones at ringside sitting with his friend. He kisses the lady to the left of him.

Music plays and here comes The Main Event Mafia. Joe leads the group and the Magnus and then Kurt and then Sting. They get in the ring. Sting grabs a mic and does a “Wooooo”! He starts by saying he formed the Mafia in June to get get the title away from Bully Ray and to take out Aces & 8s. As of now, job accomplished. They took some bumps along the way and faced it all, but they did it. Sting says, until further notice, Mafia will be put back up on the shelf. The crowd boos. Sting says they all agreed on this decision. Everyone is going in their different ways. For Sting, he could have went to fight for the TNA Title again but he came up short. Magnus took the spot. He seized the moment. Sting says Kurt will seize the moment and become TNA World Champion once again. Joe will seize the moment and be champion once again. Magnus will seize the moment and become TNA World Champion for the first time. Sting is going to deal with entitlement. People believe this business owes people something. He is talking about people who come in right on top without paying any dues. He was not taught that in this business. He has respect for this business and respect for the people who came before him.

Sting goes on to hug Kurt, Joe, and then Magnus and says he loves them. Sting hands the mic to Joe and exits the ring. He walks up the ramp. Joe says hello to Cincinnati. He says he had the backs of the other members for awhile, but he has been held down for the title for far too long. The road begins with Magnus and it will probably lead to Kurt too. They are friends but they make far better enemies. Joe hands the mic over to Magnus and leaves the ring. He walks up the ramp.

Magnus says that there are only two left. He says Kurt is on the road of redemption. He praises him as he is one of the best of all-time. His road to redemption just so happens to be Magnus’ road to destiny. He loves Kurt like a brother, but he wants to tell Kurt to his face that when he goes through Joe and gets to Kurt… he will run him over. He has gold on his mind. He has Championship gold. For the first time, he plans to be World Champion. Magnus hands the mic to Kurt and leaves the ring. He walks up the ramp.

Kurt Angle stands alone and looks around at the crowd. Kurt says it has been an honor and privilege to run with the guys for the last several months. They all have goals to obtain. Kurt’s is to be World Champion again. Kurt says he must do this. He must do this to be Hall of Fame worthy. He was told not to wrestle last week but he did and was knocked out again. He talked to his own doctor this week and he said… before Kurt went any further Bobby Roode’s music hits and he comes out to the ring.

Roode says he is embarrassed for Kurt. He makes excuse after excuse. He tells Kurt to be a man and admit that he lost TWICE! Back to back to The It Factor Bobby Roode! He tells Kurt to move on. Roode will move on as the World Title tournament is upon us. Roode is in it. If Kurt gets to the finals, Roode will have no problem kicking his @ss for the third time. Roode is right in the face of Kurt. Kurt looks him right in the eyes. Kurt gets back on the mic and says he has Austin Aries next week in the first round. He expects to meet Roode in the finals. When that happens, his @ss is Kurt’s! He may not want to wait though. Kurt hits Roode on the top of the head with a mic. Roode goes down and Kurt goes on top but Roode stands and goes after Kurt. They are right on each other punching back and forth. Officials and referees enter the ring and break it up. Kurt breaks from them and spears Roode down. Roode punches back. The officials/referees try to pull them off again.

Trainers and doctors come into the ring and check on Sabin. Velvet Sky also comes in and checks on Chris, her boyfriend. Jeff celebrates in the ring as the crowd cheers. The show fades.

Alex’s Assumptions:
I am not sure how to react to tonight’s show. Clearly there wasn’t a lot of wrestling on tonight’s show, but I am starting to get the feeling that TNA is fading away from the whole “Wrestling Matters”. They tried that campaign and it didn’t work. Now they are moving onto reality based programming which explains the endless promos and segments tonight. One example… Kurt Angle/Bobby Roode. These two simply were out every half hour. I mean, I am not complaining, but I can clearly see the new direction TNA is making. To continue, I like Gail’s open challenge and I am curious to see who will accept it. Could we see a former Knockout make their return? Ethan Carter III and Dixie Carter continue to make me laugh with their idea of “tough competition”. Sure, it may seem childish and stupid, but I just get a kick out of it. The main event tonight seems to be getting mixed reactions, but I enjoyed it. I do have to say writing coverage of a show is so different than just watching a match. In fact, sometimes it is better writing coverage of it because you get more involved. I enjoyed it, but I think I will enjoy Kurt and Aries next week even more. It could be one wrestling clinic in the ring. And finally, Main Event Mafia disband while Aces & 8s do a complete swerve on everyone and continue their reign. Honestly, what else are they going to do? Only time will tell.

    Hey! Impact! Who’s excited?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Eh, I’m worried about more shark jumping tonight.

      • David Jr.

        I heard Daniels and Kazarian have there Leather Jackets on and are at the Beach as we speak.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          EH!

          • David Jr.

            Bad Influence would make it way cooler than the Fonz would though.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Very true!

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

          Beach? *sigh* Winter is coming to Maine and I’m ready to protest!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Winter is already here down here! I have been below freezing the last two nights.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I live in Chicago, I know how it feels. I love Summer so much more. I like going outside and not having to wear big coats.

          • David Jr.

            I’m from Michigan, and we say in Michigan we have 4 seasons, Early Winter, Winter, Still Winter and Road Work Season. What are you protesting though?

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

            Snow! I don’t deal with cold well.

            In Maine we have early winter, winter, still winter, mud season, black fly season, and it’s fricken miserable hot so it must be August!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hey everyone, welcome to this week’s Impact Watch Party! As TNA’s last set of shows on the road, I hope they don’t further jump the Dixie Shark, as we have Full Metal Mayhem between Jeff Hardy and Chris Sabin tonight, as well as a special, No-Contact appearance by Adam “Pacman” Jones!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’ve been pretty happy for the most part, I found out Miley is coming here on March 7th which means I can probably go to both the WWE house show and her concert. Plus gay marriage is now legal in Illinois even though you have to wait to June 2014 to get licenses and the IWC has been pretty nice to me. Too bad this is the last Impact on the road and Pacman Jones is on Impact.

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

        Screw them Alex, you know we love you. You might piss us off once in a while, but you know we won’t be like THEM!

        • Alex Gallardo

          That’s true, this site is much better than that.

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

            We really try.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        WOOHOO! Equality! Hopefully we will see it start to trickle down here to the south. And while there are some blatant negatives in this episode, I have high hopes that TNA will end the road shows on a high note.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Me too, I’m not getting married but I’m just glad to know I’ll be able to. I’ll miss TNA on the road though, it looked so much more better than it did in the Impact zone.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m hoping that TNA will try to keep the production values high even while pulling it off of the road. But if nothing else, this should have been a learning experience for them.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Plus with them having Eric out of TNA for the most part it will be even harder to manage their production values.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Granted, but I have to hope against hope that they’ve learned some lessons. EB is a great genius when it comes to putting on a show, and while his lack of presence could hurt TNA, I believe he had to have taught them some things.

          • Alex Gallardo

            They had to move on sometime. TNA has to learn how to keep up good storylines and production on their own now.

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

            *Cheap plug* That’s what I wrote in an article this week about the whole learning experience. Hopefully something was learned.

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

    Hey everyone! The last Impact Wrestling on the show until further notice! Quite sad in a way.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I loved TNA on the road but I would rather have them off the road than out of business.

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

        Absolutely agree. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I still think they should have used smaller arenas, it may not have looked as big but it would still be better than renting out arenas that they can only half fill.

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

            But it’s the overall cash flow going in the wrong direction, even small arenas wouldn’t have helped them.

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

            But it’s the overall cash flow going in the wrong direction, even small arenas wouldn’t have helped them.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well then as I said, TNA is better off the road then. They need to take the growing process slow, or accept that they’re a stagnant company.

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

    I’m curious, what is everyone eating tonight? Pulled out some heavy chocolate (brownie, M&Ms, Reese’s). What are you guys having?

    • CJ Blaze

      I’ll be eating ice cream :)

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

        Kind?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Knowing him, Shield Ice Cream Bars!

        • CJ Blaze

          Haha! Actually just cookies and cream lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Homemade Queso Blanco and chips.

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

        Now that sounds good! Haha

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m just chewing gum and drinking water if that counts

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

        Boring but counts, haha.

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

        Boring but counts, haha.

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

      Pot roast, potatoes, onions. Then orange cream popsicles, possibly cookies, and whatever else might float by.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        OOOO! Might have to pull out the Mark 35 and join you!

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

        Got a whole meal going on! Haha

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

          Ellie’s birthday was yesterday, so I cooked for my girl.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Impact Wrestling Commercial: Highlighting the Tourney combatants and FMM TONIGHT!

  • Alex Gallardo

    The only thing I will be interested in after this episode is how many people will be able to fill the new Impact zone and what the stage will be.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d estimate 2000-3000 and similar to the old stage. Although, one could hope for the old split stage! I always liked it when the Heels and Faces came out of separate entrances.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I enjoyed the 3 screen stage that they used for BFG 2010-2011 much more. But that many people? I thought it was smaller than the other one.

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

        I loved that! The heel and face entrances and the six sided ring, and you knew you had TNA.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anderson, Dixie, and Pacman in the intro backstage segment! Anderson agrees no violence if Dixie can get Bully to agree to a match with him!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I just hope TNA leaves Jones in the crowd. I don’t want to see any more of these guys in TNA.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So from backstage to ringside in just seconds? Pacman wishes he was that fast on the Field!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Speaking of that the MEM looks so much better without Rampage Jackson, now they just need Nash there again and it will draw huge.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      But Nash has said that he would never come back to TNA. I agree that Rampage being gone is an improvement though!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I know that, but it’s just a dream for me. If not the MEM he would work great in the Vanilla Midget angle in WWE. Him and HHH together again would be great.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I know that, but it’s just a dream for me. If not the MEM he would work great in the Vanilla Midget angle in WWE. Him and HHH together again would be great.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, if Angle isn’t cleared, why is he in his gear?

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

    Sting didn’t tell Mags that he loves him, but told the other two. You can see Mags realized it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye! Might be very interesting. I felt Stings promo was directed towards him too!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else get the feeling that was Sting riding off into the sunset?

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

      Very sadly.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Sting leaving would be really bad for TNA. They wouldn’t have much star power left after he leaves so they need to start building up stars now.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Just seeing Sting leave the MEM reminds me he’ll be out of TNA this year. I don’t even want to think about that considering Sting is one of my favorites.

  • David Jr.

    Is it just me or does Angle look off in his eyes?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hate to say this, but I feel it is because we have seen him at less than sober for so long that a sober look in his eyes is a change to us.

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

        I’m not sure of that Jesse. He really looks off.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Going to rewind and look. If it is a neurological issue, I’ll be able to tell.

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

            It very well could be neurological, and that’s your boat more than mine. It’s in his eyes, he’s not there the way he used to be. It’s not that they’re red, and possibly a bit bloodshot, it’s that he doesn’t seem to be firing on all cylinders.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            PM.

          • David Jr.

            What’s PM?

          • Alex Gallardo

            Private message.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Personal Message.

          • David Jr.

            I don’t want to sound like an idiot, I know PM is personal message, but I was thinking, maybe it was a medical term.

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

            No, sorry, just Jesse and I discussing what we’re seeing in Angle. Sometimes we have to be careful about what we say because we do work here. We don’t need someone coming at us because we’re wondering if Angle could be the next big wrestling tragedy.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, but I don’t want to post my thoughts on this one. I know what I deal with in my own Neurological issues, and thanks to that, I have a much more extensive knowledge of them than a 27 year old non medical student should. Kendra and I really need to get our article together.

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

            I have too much medical knowledge myself because I will read on anything medical that piques my interest. We have a lot of medical discussions.

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

            Besides, how often does Jesse say that little about anything?

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

            Besides, how often does Jesse say that little about anything?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh you! *hugs*

          • David Jr.

            Since I was the one who broughted up, I had to ask.

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

      Something looks off, you’re right. Then again, he’s got to be dealing with some issues as his hands were not working after Roode took him down ‘last week.’ Also, it’s been 18 years since he won his gold, that’s an entire career for many athletes.

  • The Breaker

    What did Sting mean by speaking about entitlement? Was it a shot at Magnus?

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

      Quite possibly. Be interesting to see.

      • The Breaker

        Well if he’s still got unfinished business then I guess they aren’t exactly writing him off yet.

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

          I hope not, but worried. TNA needs Sting.

          • The Breaker

            He’s great to have around, but what is there really left for him to do? I’d argue that they need Kurt Angle a lot more.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            They need them both, as they are an integral part of TNA’s brand recognition.

          • The Breaker

            What little they have. I really do think TNA needs a reset. That doesn’t necessarily include dumping the older guys right away, but they need to make room for new stars.

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

            After the way Angle had little control of his arms and hands after his match last week, and it’s something that’s been getting worse and worse – I’ve been watching, whether he wins or loses. Angle is dealing with some health issues, to the point that I wonder if he could pass WWE’s Wellness testing, and I’m not talking about the drugs part of it. I truly wonder if he’s fit enough to be doing what he’s doing. I’ve been saying for a long time that I expect Angle to really hurt himself in that ring at some point, and though I hope it never happens, I worry that it might sooner rather than later.

          • The Breaker

            It’s a legit point. He really needs to look out for himself, now more than ever. His loyalty to Dixie might end up costing him.

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

            I have worried about him for a while, but since his return, my worry is at a whole new level. He has a baby at home.

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

    Al Snow! I loves me some Al Snow!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Oh God, they’re getting Pacman Jones involved with the show.

    • David Jr.

      That was more wrestling Pacman Jones did than his entire run as their Tag Team Champion.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Surprised he didn’t have a No Contact order this time too!

  • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

    Would be pretty awesome and unpredictable if the winner of the tournament ends up as being..Samoa Joe lol

  • The Breaker

    Two trained wrestlers getting taken out by a couple of football players?! Ridiculous.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I have no idea who in TNA thinks that this draws or makes sense.

      • The Breaker

        I’m sure it’s a team effort. If they could pin the responsibility on one person, they’d be fired by now.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BAKA! Why the hell did TNA think it was a good idea to have NFL stars rough up their only true Tag Team?

    • The Breaker

      And it’s not like they just tackled them. They actually outmaneuvered them and took them out. That’s what makes me ill.

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

        Can I use that comment?

        • The Breaker

          Sure!

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

            Thanks, it’s going into the RIB, with your name. Perfectly written.

          • The Breaker

            Awesome, thanks for the compliment. You meant the BZ didn’t you?

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

            Yeah, I did! lol I have people running around me talking and I went to left field.

          • The Breaker

            Understandable. If other people are talking to me while I’m trying to type I’ll end up putting down something I meant to say out loud.

  • Alex Gallardo

    ANOTHER WWE2K14 commercial on TNA TV. So much for promoting Impact.

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

      Stacy just tweaked as it was the first time he’s seen them showing this during Impact. He had a nice little rant.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d love to see TNA run even one ad on WWE programming. That’d be funny!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I remember they ran that billboard close to WWE headquarters once after the name change to Impact Wrestling. That’s seems to be as close as they ever got though.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ken telling Knux and Baby to get out, as it was the best thing that happened to him? Interesting way to breed some dissension!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Brooke’s patch does say Queen.

    • The Breaker

      Funny, from the way she dresses I wouldn’t take her as royalty…

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

        Besides, I’m the only Queen around here!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          See, now I have to steal that cut!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Ever since I’ve heard that Miley is going on tour I’ve been listening to nothing but her live performances. She really does have a great voice especially for when she was on SNL. And she’s a better twerker than Brooke.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Double Bronco Buster by ODB!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Double Bronco Buster by ODB!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, at least Taz admitted something truthful tonight! “EY is a braver man than me!”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We come back from break with some boobie slapping? SOLD!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We come back from break with some boobie slapping? SOLD!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Well you got invested in that match quickly.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, mammary abuse helped!

  • The Breaker

    I haven’t been able to figure it out, is Velvet a heel now because of Sabin?

    • Alex Gallardo

      She’s kinda like AJ when she was with Daniel Bryan in 2012. So not a heel, just an innocent girl taken advantage of by the heel.

      • The Breaker

        More WWE comparisons? NO! NO! NO!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      She’s a face, but is supposed to be a tweener. Sabin’s actions don’t directly align with her.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah, I realized she was acting a little heelish with some of her moves.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes the Tapa/ODB feud…

    • Alex Gallardo

      Didn’t ODB have a feud with Awesome Kong in the past, this is the cheap knockoff version.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        A small one, the notable Kong feud was against Gail Kim.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I know about that one. They had great matches.

    • The Breaker

      When it rains, it pours…

  • Alex Gallardo

    Speaking of Miley and TNA, I’ll miss Impact to go to her concert on March 7th.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I see Teryn Terell coming back.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      In 5 months, after she has her baby!

      • Alex Gallardo

        Ah yes I forgot about that. Still, that division needs new people or old faces.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Agreed. I’m hoping for Cheerleader Melissa, aka Alyssa Flash, to return. Or Roxxi! And Daffney, but that won’t happen after her lawsuit.

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

            I agree on Melissa, but I’m a huge fan of Roxxi!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Melissa is the single best unsigned female wrestler in the business today.

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

            And Roxxi no longer wrestles, but I can dream!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Roxxi retired from wrestling but I wouldn’t mind seeing the others back.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Aw! That sucks!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Any female wrestler? Cheerleader Melissa, come back please!!!

  • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

    With Hogan Gone,I can see Awesome Kong returning to TNA!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Her opinion on TNA still hasn’t been very good at all. They would have to do a lot to get her back.

      • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

        Well,like they say,Never say never in wrestling business!Maybe they can work something with her,as I think that Awesome kong would be a great addition to the KO division.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Way to blow Kayfabe out the window TNA!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m glad they’re showing footage of AJ Styles on Impact.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I am, but considering everything, it makes 0 sense. Why would Dixie let production show a video of AJ defending the title outside of TNA?

      • The Breaker

        Apparently AJ has “friends” that were able to get it on air.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          So we are going to get Dixie talking about how she “Fired 6 people thanks to AJ?”

          • The Breaker

            I wouldn’t be surprised at that. Some of those production guys have screwed up pretty badly lately anyway.

      • Alex Gallardo

        They could have had his footage interrupt the show or they could have Dixie fire whoever showed the footage.

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

        Either way people would be complaining. Basically, it had to be shown.

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

    During Hardy’s video my daughter Ellie asked what BFG was, being as she’s a big Roald Dahl fan. I told her. Stacy came back with, “It’s really Bound For Bankruptcy, but they messed up the letters.”

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Ouch! Burn by Stacy!

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

        He’s quiet most of the time, but when he lets those comments fly, they hurt!

    • Alex Gallardo

      LOL.

  • The Breaker

    Main Event Mafia publicly wrote off Aces & Eights. It’s time to move on.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed. I hope this vote is the dissolution of the club.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’m just SMH. Once again they show a WWE2K14 commercial on Impact.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I just realized, unless this show is a real stinker the rest of the night and no one talks, I will pass the 6000 comment mark tonight!

    • Alex Gallardo

      EVERYONE STOP TALKING!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        LOL!

    • David Jr.

      When do you think you’ll get to 10,000?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        At this rate, by Mania!

        • David Jr.

          Tell Richard to have a Wrestlemania Watch Party, and hell even induct you into the WNW hall of fame.

  • The Breaker

    “I DON’T CARE ABOUT ADVERTISERS!”

    -Dixie, with the most obvious statement of the night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Very true!

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

      Are you trying to take over the BZ tonight?

      • The Breaker

        I’m grabbing the brass ring!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Dixie, it can’t be a local affiliate issue if it was across the nation! BAKA!!!

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

      There are no affiliates, it’s a cable company.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I know, but Dixie thinks so!

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

          And you’d think someone, somewhere in TNA, would have a clue.

  • Alex Gallardo

    I’ve noticed that Gunner and James Storm haven’t been on Impact tonight. And I’m fine with that considering I can never watch Gunner the same again.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’m missing the lyrical version of their theme.

    • The Breaker

      Hopefully this is the last time we’ll hear either version. I miss Bully’s real theme.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Now we could possibly see the end of the Aces n’ Eights. I have no problem with it at this point.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And I see this vote going with Bully and Taz voting against dissolution, Knux and Bisch for, and Bully revealing Brooke gets a vote because she has a cut and voting against.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes Knux’s and Bisch’s face turns!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Face or heel Garret is still awful.

  • The Breaker

    Taz could vote against, after he said he hates the club last week.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TAZ FACE TURN!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Same goes for him too. He just isn’t a good commentator. Thank God for music, Miley Cyrus, and headphones.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh please tell me Taz is going to choke Bully out!

    • jerryfranchise

      or a tazplex

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

      As long as he doesn’t bump.

  • Alex Gallardo

    A Mr. Anderson victory against Bully Ray would perfectly cap off the Aces n’ Eights.

  • The Breaker

    He referenced DTA?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yup, and SCSA!

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

    Taz is still in the ring?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep, sadly.

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

        I see, I am a bit behind because Ellie distracted me on her way out. Had to go all mom on her.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Better to have him there that the announcer’s booth.

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

        To quote Jesse, “Yep, sadly.”

  • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

    Oh yeah baby!A&8 Are still in da house :D

  • The Breaker

    Crap, well we have to sit through more Aces? I was just starting to see the light!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And I was hoping for a catchahteme! (Misspelled, I’m sure, but the old ECW name for Tazz’s submission.)

      • The Breaker

        The Katihajime. (I had to look it up. I’m not that good.)

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Thanks. I tried, but couldn’t find it!

  • Matt Hansen

    At Turning Point, Bischoff and Garrett turn on Bully or Devon and Doc return and help Anderson.

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

      Not sure about Devon and Doc, but it would make perfect sense for them to turn, and throw DTA right back at Bully.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At this point, I hope DOC. It’d be sweet irony, considering DOC left because Anderson was voted VP.

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

        That would be, but I doubt it.

  • Alex Gallardo

    So they’re filming One Night Only on the road. That’s a good idea.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So they will be taping a ONO at the Dec 29th show in Lowell Mass! KB, you up for going?

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

      Closer than Boston, I think! I’ll talk to Stacy when he comes back down. He was just talking about the next time we get to see TNA, so I can throw it right back at him. Hotel rooms are cheaper there, and the Maine Legislature won’t be in session then, so he won’t have that excuse!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Roode wanting Angle is the way to keep a crowd pumped throughout a show! That is a fiery feud!

  • David Jr.

    Who’s a bigger disappointment EGIII or RGIII in his 2nd season?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      EC3. RG3 can be attributed to adjustment issues and injuries.

      • David Jr.

        And after I said that, I find out RGIII is playing a good game right now. Though he will always be known as the QB to lose to the Lions at Washington.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So what jobber is EC3 facing tonight?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Dewey Barns.

  • The Breaker

    Same jobber again? Stop wasting our time, please…

  • Matt Hansen

    Am I the only one who thinks EC3 is untalented?

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

      He’s talented, and has charisma, but I think he had to sign it away with his TNA contact because he’s blowing chunks!

      • Matt Hansen

        I have yet to see it. Hated him as Bateman and don’t like him as EC3

    • The Breaker

      I heard that he has some upside, but I’m not impressed with anything he’s done so far.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He has talent, but sadly TNA is destroying that, like they are doing our dreams.

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

        Then don’t watch ;)

        • Alex Gallardo

          I’m sure he has at least one thing he likes about TNA.

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

            My favorite thing is harassing Alex Barie!

          • Alex Gallardo

            LOL that’s pretty fun. I like to see how far he defends TNA sometimes but that’s fine we’re all marks for somebody.

          • David Jr.

            You Hulk Hogan, me John Cena.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Yup. Plus Miley Cyrus and Ariana Grande if we’re talking music.

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

            He and I have had some lovely debates.

          • Alex Gallardo

            And that’s why I came to the IWC for discussions and debates with different people.

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

            We haven’t had one for awhile Kendra. I don’t know… I liked the peacefulness ;) Haha

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

            You’re just asking for it! But I’m in the middle of NaNo, so you have to wait.

            I wouldn’t mind that. As long as it isn’t too cold and snowy when I come.

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

            You serious? We could do this!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Heck, do a WNW meet up in Mass!

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

            I’m all for that as it’s closest to me!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m planning one with Gesus in Chicago next year at a Raw! Get all of the WNW fans in the area to meet at a restaurant to dine and talk wrestling!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I would probably go to the Chicago one.

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

            I would say Pirmanti Bros in Pittsburgh. No sandwich like it!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Can I come?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, they are planning one in Mass. I have one I am doing in Chicago next year.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I might come to one. I’ve never met up with anyone from the Internet but I would love to meet you guys.

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

            I met Stacy online, my mother met her boyfriend online, my daughter Ellie met her boyfriend online, you never know what could happen!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’ll be the referee for your debating.

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

            If you are serious. Just need to figure out dates and so on.

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

            It’s Dec 29th. Jesse, is there only two seats in that spot?

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

            Yeah, just realized you said ONO.

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

            So no?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Um, I will check in a few.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            3, all in a row. 7-9, Row B in front of camera.

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

            It’s up to Alex, and he’s working. Alex, we will talk tomorrow.

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

            I work tomorrow too. Done at 6. We will chat at night.

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

            That works. Will give me more time to talk to Stacy about it.

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

            Okay, sounds good. My friend might want to come. A passionate casual fan who I went with to all my shows this year. I will see.

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

            Cool!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I can’t help it… I love the in ring product. I will watch until the end, as the talent has earned that much respect from me.

      • David Jr.

        TNA and My Dreams are never related.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I dreamed once that I went to Smackdown but I came too late and the show ended when I got there.

  • Alex Gallardo

    EC3 needs legit opponents he could beat to make himself look strong. Not jobbers every week.

    • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

      I agree.I Think he need to start facing real TNA wrestlers,I mean it ain’t something that difficult to do.Have Chavo/Hernandez/any Tna midcarder talk trash about dixie,she get angry,sends one of em to face EC3,he wins,start a little feud to make himself look legit!

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

      We don’t need another Ryback.

    • JJ

      When he came out right after the roode promo I thought that’s who he was going to take on, that may have helped legitimize him, even if angle did end up helping or distracting.

    • The Breaker

      Well, having him face jobbers isn’t necessarily the wrong way to do it. There just aren’t true jobbers in wrestling anymore, so it’s harder to see the point of it nowadays. And the reason he’s facing the same guy week after week is clearly to work the crowd and get them irritated. It had that affect on me. I’m still not sold on him, but it’s too early to kill the guy.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well then shouldn’t just end what they’re doing but they need to give him legit feuds and victories over TNA’s better talent.

        • The Breaker

          We’ll have to see, but it does look like they have big plans for him.

          • JJ

            Could they possibly be building him as a company/franchise solution to AJ?Maybe a bit too optimistic, maybe just for the x division.

          • The Breaker

            The fact that he came in right around the start of this new Dixie storyline does make me think that he’ll end up facing AJ at some point.

  • JJ

    This is the first time I’ve seen Bateman, or EC3 actually wrestle, I hate that he uses Dean Ambrose’s finisher…also was disliking the A & 8 bit..

    • JJ

      Wrestle in TNA I should clarify, I liked him on NXT.

    • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

      I never gave Bateman some of my attention,but from what I’ve heard,he had that Finisher way before Dean Ambrose.

      • JJ

        Ah, that’d be my fault then I guess I never noticed him using it, which is weird. I even went on youtube and looked and you’re right..

        • Ahmed Jens Ben Arfa

          That’s mainly because EC3 wasn’t used the way Dean was.We could hardly see him wrestle,but Ambrose was at some point involved in main events in the WWE,so it all makes sense.I hope at least It wouldn’t drive the fans attention from him,as Ethan seems to me like the type of person who’se working hard and trying his best to get a shot!Still not that impressed by him,but I guess time will tell us!

          • JJ

            Ya I loved him (mostly because of his charisma) like I said in nxt, but I stopped watching it for a while and then he went down to fcw, when it was still that and kind of faded away. I always thought he would have been great tagging with Johnny Curtis, but they let him fall by the waist side too.

    • BlazeKing

      Actually, he used it before Dean Ambrose did. That’s what you get for not watching NXT back then. Not that I would blame you….

  • The Breaker

    Appletini picks up the win!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Appletini is 3-0 in matches!

      • Matt Hansen

        I’ve been hearing that him and vacant are thinking of forming a tag team.

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

        Stacy said he wanted to bring Daniels a real appletini, that would work if we could get the seats you found me. I have been poking Stacy about needing to go.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Full Metal Mayhem next!

  • David Jr.

    Hmmm, Jeff Hardy’s new CD, I wonder if I should buy it for my brother for Christmas?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Does he enjoy Hardy’s music?

      • David Jr.

        One of his Favorite CD’s is John Cena’s. He bought Zack Ryder’s Hoeski on ITunes. He has Mickie James CD.

        • Alex Gallardo

          That seems like a varied interest in music, let him listen to some of what Hardy has made and see if he likes it.

          • David Jr.

            I think he bought some Jeff’s older stuff on ITunes too.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well then I would just try and make sure that he will enjoy the music. Have him listen to a song that will be on the album so he can get a more new look at Hardy.

          • David Jr.

            He’s probably already bought it or will buy it the day it comes available. Anytime WWE or TNA releases anything music related, he buys it.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Then you should probably get it for him.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Do you enjoy giving people auditory torture? Hardy’s singing is awful!

      • David Jr.

        Um, yeah.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I swear, I bought the first one without listening to it at all because my wife gets all reved up over him. It effectively turned her off of him.

  • The Breaker

    Here comes the RAW roul— err, Wheel of Dixie.

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

    What happened to Dixie’s hair? It’s all one flat and boring color. Really ages her! Then again, the way she was waggling her head she looked like a 1st grade teacher!

    • JJ

      they say the hair matches the personality ;)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Burn!

    • The Breaker

      Maybe being a first grade teacher is her true calling in life. She definitely hasn’t found it here.

      • Alex Gallardo

        I would feel bad for all of her students.

        • The Breaker

          Bless their hearts.

  • The Breaker

    That was a really bad sell by Aries when Roode ran by him.

  • BlazeKing

    What’s up with the decommissioned Raw Roulette wheel Dixie?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    FAIL SABIN!

  • Matt Hansen

    I prefer Sabin as a face.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I don’t prefer him as either.

  • David Jr.

    Ok, TNA is moving back to Orlando because they’re losing money. So will they actually make a new title to give the winner of this tournament, will he share with AJ Styles or are they going to go to Toys R Us and pick up a belt?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I vote K-Mart, since TNA has a distribution deal with them for toys!

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

        Our local K-Mart has virtually nothing! It’s all WWE.

      • David Jr.

        Toys R Us are the only thing that carry TNA stuff in Michigan, so that’s why I said it.

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

          That’s where I found 6 sides of steel. I love my wrestling toys!

          • David Jr.

            My brother and I go every week looking to see what the new wrestling toys are.

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

            I’m cheap about it. I will buy used toys and lots on ebay, but they’re to play with, not to leave packed away. I have gotten some interesting finds that way.

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

            I am sure you guys can relate. Remember when the figures were $6 and now they are pretty much $15? It’s amazing seeing the price slowly rise up years and years. I have a mighty collection myself. That’s what happens when you are a little kid fan from the Attitude Era to present day, haha.

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

            I didn’t really start collecting, other than a choice few, until the past 10 years or so. Now I’m trying to pick up the ones I would have wanted back then. Other than the things I can find on sale, or buying for Sam, ebay and etsy are my friends.

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

            I remember going to Toys R Us every week with my grandma and she would pretty much buy any new ones they had. Let me just say, I would walk out with stuff every week.

    • The Breaker

      They’ll take the old spinner belt and cover up the WWE logo with a paper plate and write TNA on it with a magic marker.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Or spray paint it!

        • BlazeKing

          Hell, they might go the cardboard route… I kid, I kid!!!

      • David Jr.

        Was taking a drink of Water when i read this post, now my screens all wet.

        • The Breaker

          Haha, sorry about that.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OW! Sabin pulled on Hardy’s gauges!

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

      That was nasty!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Agreed! That hurts!

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

          Ellie always tweaks about Punk’s lip ring, this is so much ickier!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow, those replays showed a TON of seats tarped off.

    • BlazeKing

      That’s all the seats TNA didn’t rent for the show. They only used half of the arena while using the stage to block off the other half they didn’t use. When they came to my city back in 2008, they used the whole arena but rented the same seating format they still use now. They’re not confident that they can fill all of those seats that weren’t rented. WWE always rents the full house while ROH picks houses they know they can fill even without a lot of people.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        See, TNA did it the same as WWE for the Jonesboro taping, and filled it all except the top set of bleachers that they didn’t use. Heck, no event uses those bleachers unless it is a graduation for the college or a basketball game!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Well Impact did okay for the most part this week. I’m just still counting the days till Dixie’s heel character is finally over. However, the day still ended well for me as it always does since I try not to have bad days. Good Night!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good night Alex!

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

      Night Alex, I love your outlook on life.

  • The Breaker

    That match was all right, but there were a couple hiccups that took away from it.

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

      Didn’t hold my attention the way a FMM should.

      • The Breaker

        Same. Gimmick matches like that are best when there’s a story, and that match was thrown together. I probably would have better enjoyed a normal match between those two.
