Impact Wrestling/Final Resolution Results – 12/19/2013
From Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Final Resolution starts off with a video package looking at AJ Styles and Dixie Carter. It shows the heel turn of Dixie when she bashed AJ and everything he stood for. AJ took the TNA World Championship and drove off to the sunset. Dixie is now looking for a new champion and she set up a tournament to determine one. Tonight is Jeff Hardy vs. Magnus in Dixie Land! Who will win the championship? Will Hardy be back on top or will Magnus win his first TNA World Championship? The video switches to the Feast or Fired match. Four stars have briefcases. Three get title shots while one gets fired.

The camera shows Magnus walking backstage. He goes up to an official. He asks if Dixie or Hardy came yet. The guy states that they haven’t. Magnus tells him to let them know that he is going to say something to get everyone’s attention. Magnus walks away.

Mike Tenay runs down the lineup for tonight’s show. As he does, music plays and here comes Magnus! Magnus walks down the ramp and gets in the ring. He grabs a mic. Magnus wants to start off by saying that he loves this business. That is why, just like everyone in the back, busted their butts to get where they are at. They do it because they love the business. Magnus can’t change where he is from, but he is proud of the fact that made a living and has a career in the United States of America. There was some adjusting to do. The first thing he realized was the power of money. Money talks. It’s not about that for Magnus though. He doesn’t care about the cars, houses, or women. It is about dignity, honor, and respect. He wonders if the same can be said about his opponent Jeff Hardy. The crowd chants, “Hardy, Hardy, Hardy.” Magnus is a fan of Jeff. Jeff overcame his demons and killed them too. However, one thing that can be coming from inside him is greed. Magnus saw the footage of Jeff having drinks with Dixie Carter. Magnus thinks Jeff owes everyone an explanation. This is the most important match in Magnus’ life. He can’t be fooled. He also doesn’t want anyone else fooled. Just then, Jeff Hardy’s music plays. He walks through the curtain and down the ramp. He gets in the ring.

Jeff grabs a mic. Jeff says Magnus jumps to conclusions but Magnus doesn’t know Jeff. You can’t judge him. Magnus retaliates and says Jeff needs to explanation himself. Magnus doesn’t forget the past. Magnus doesn’t forget 10/10/10. Jeff says that was a different time and place. Magnus says it was not a different place. It was in the ring. Hardy took the money and ran with the TNA World Title. Jeff could be doing it again. Jeff starts to hold his head and walk around the ring. Magnus says he forgave Hardy and everyone else did, but what would they think when he sellout again? The crowd chants, “We don’t care.” Jeff says to worry about Magnus’ life… not about his. Jeff drops the mic and walks out of the ring. His music plays.

Christy Hemme is backstage with Kurt Angle. Hemme announces that Kurt is fighting Roode in 2 out of 3 falls tonight. Kurt says a lot has happened since Bound for Glory. He lost to Roode, declined his Hall of Fame opportunity, lost the TNA World Title Tournament, but now he is going to beat Roode not once but twice. This is not the end of Kurt Angle, but only the beginning.

A video package plays showcasing the rivalry of Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode within the past two months. Roode states he is better than Angle but Angle wants to really see. They brawl countless times. Roode announces 2 out of 3 falls for Final Resolution.

Eric Young’s music plays and he comes out on the stage. As he makes his way to the ring, video plays showing Bad Influence and Joseph Park rivalry. They had a tag team match (Bad Influence vs. Park/Young). Young needed to turn Park into that monster. He made Park bleed from the head and Park turned into The Monster “Abyss”. Eric states Park is Abyss. Park doesn’t believe it.

Young is in the ring with a mic and with a table and a couple of gifts on the table. He says he dropped a bombshell for Park last week but wants his friend out here. Park comes out and gets in the ring. He grabs a mic. Young states that he doesn’t know how to say it, but “You are Abyss.” Park says Eric has been a great friend and lead him in a great direction but everyone is telling him things and his head is a blur. His name is Joseph Park. Young says he is a scientist and did an experiment. He used his fist, punched Park and he bled and Abyss came. Park knows as he watched the video but doesn’t know what happened. Young made a match for next week and it is Kazarian and Daniels vs. Joseph Park in a Monster’s Ball match. Park says Young is nuts as that is his brother’s match. He won’t do it. Young knew he would say that. Young says he got some gifts for some visual aid. He hands it to Park and he opens the one gift and it is a chair. Young hands him another. Park opens the next gift and it is a box with a bag in it. He opens the bag and it thumbtacks. Young hands him the last box. Park unwraps the package and it is barbwire. Park gets back on the mic.

Jeff walks away and Joe glares at him.

An #Impact365 video plays. It shows Rockstar Spud meeting with Dixie Carter. Carter is upset while Spud says he went to Georgia to get the title.

Jeff states that he did meet with Dixie last week as he thought about the present but also the future. He thought about his wife and daughter. He loves to entertain the creatures in the ring. “Hardy, Hardy, Hardy” – the crowd chants. Hardy states Dixie promised him with big money and huge contracts but Dixie would own Hardy… no one owns Hardy and no one owns the creatures. Jeff told Dixie to take her money and “stick it”. Like AJ Styles, Jeff will win the championship and represent the company. All of a sudden, music plays and here comes Dixie Carter. She walks down the ramp and gets in the ring.

She has a mic and states that Jeff wants to compare himself with AJ… that’s fine, but let’s compare. Dixie says everything Jeff has is owes to her. Everything his family owns is owed to her. Dixie stood beside him. Jeff begins to talk, but Dixie tells him to stop talking. Dixie states no one else was beside him but she was. She is why he still has a job. He shouldn’t care about his wife or daughter as Jeff should focus on Dixie. She says she can easily take Jeff away from TNA and take his job away. Jeff needs Dixie more than Dixie needs Jeff. Jeff wouldn’t be able to sell his merchandise or his music. Dixie tells Jeff to make the right choice. Dixie says she will stay out here because this is a big match. She walks away.

    Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s Impact Watch Party! Tonight is Final Resolution, and we have a stacked show that will crown a NEW TNA Champion and a 2 out of 3 Falls match between Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’m actually interested in this show. And judging by the fact that TNA has made this show big and that they’re not going up against Football it’s my guess that they’ll do good in the ratings.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        There’s not a game tonight? Odd! Hopefully they can pull 1.5 million!

        • Alex Gallardo

          I don’t follow Football but I read that on another website.

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

          Fingers crossed. It might just be my mood, but I’m not really excited tonight.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’m pretty excited to see the show, mostly for the revealing of the Feast Or Fired briefcases and the world tile match. Too bad I got spoiled.

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

            Forgot about Feast Or Fired! Okay, a bit more excited now.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’m glad I could I remind you.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hey, I’m out of my funk right now, you better not be getting into one!

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

            Not in a funk, just feeling kind of blah – physically.

            Not in a funk, just feeling kind of blah – physically.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I always try to maintain positive and pumped up attitude. It can really help me do things and make me happy.

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

            I usually do too, but I’m so blah right now. My body hurts, and I’m having troubles staying upbeat.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I hate being down physically because that’s the one thing that you can’t really control. I hope you get better though.

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

            Thanks. Most if the issues are chronic, but with a headache and other things that are not my norm, so it’s kicking my ass tonight. Also doesn’t help that I have this brace on my wrist making it that much harder to write, but Ric has been covering the BZ for me, so that’s been huge.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I understand that! I’m not feeling great in that department either, but WNW does help me out!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I love this community. It’s a great alternative from some of the other websites in the IWC and the people are very nice.

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

            As I’ve said before, we try very hard for that. Jesse works hard to be the strong arm of the law around here, and he won’t let anyone pull that crap.

    I got my kettle corn and Mountain Dew ready for tonight’s show. What’s the snack for all of you tonight?

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’ve been eating too much sweets today so I’m laying off smacks for the rest of the night. I normally just drink water during wrestling.

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

        Water? Little boring, haha.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Well that’s just today. If I feel lazy I’ll normally eat chips and Pepsi. I still haven’t had the chance to really try Mountain Dew though.

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

            I don’t like Dew, but that’s just me.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’ve only used it once when I had a headache. Other than that it’s just something I don’t always drink.

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

            Dew is my fav!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’ve heard a lot of good things about it but I’ve never looked into it. I’ll try it again sometime.

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

            I have not and was going to ask about it. Never even knew they sold it.

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

            Found them in minis as Target was changing from Halloween to Christmas candy. They are yummy.

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

            I am going to have to check to see if they have it here. There’s so much candy that I am bound to find it.

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

            I’m inhaling it before it goes away at the end of the season.

            That sounds like me when Shamrock Shakes are at McDonald’s!

        Eh, I’ve decided to stay straight edge for the rest of my life but go crazy Jesse!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I admit I broke down and have been drinking some over the last month, but I keep it at a low enough level that I just feel good and more open. Nothing that I’d ever regret.

          • Alex Gallardo

            That’s just fine by me. You’re a responsible adult and it’s just fine to drink, as long as you don’t drive or go overboard on it.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’d never drive, and I only imbibe in my own home, so no real risk either.

          • David Jr.

            Or you could call your boss and quit on the phone, says Natalya.

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

            Unless, like Jesse and I, you’re disabled. Though I’d never drunk dial Richard. I don’t drink to that point.

          • David Jr.

            I’m not disabled.

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

            Came out wrong. Stating that some of us don’t have bosses to drunk dial – other than Richard.

          • David Jr.

            My bosses are my mother and aunt so, it be really weird if I drunk dialed them (though I won’t since I don’t drink)

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

            My mother would laugh at me, and never let me live it down. Sadly, I barely speak to my aunt.

          • David Jr.

            My aunt made me her daughter’s godfather so I’m close with her.

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

            I said that and completely forgot that I just met another aunt on FB, and hope to meet her in person soon! We have a very messed up family – both of my parents – right now. I’m working on pulling everyone closer.

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

            I don’t drink much, but the meds I’m on… Yeah, I try not to mix often.

          • David Jr.

            I have never had a adult beverage.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I accidentally drank a little of my dad’s beer when I was little once. I thought it was a Pepsi can that I had placed right next to it but I didn’t realize that it wasn’t until it was already in my mouth. So because I didn’t want to swallow it I spit it on the floor. Nothing ever tasted as bad as it so I never touched a can again. Straight Edge 4 life!

          • David Jr.

            Neither of my parents ever drank. So I guess I just take after them.

          • David Jr.

            Neither of my parents ever drank. So I guess I just take after them.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well I’m not going to go too into this but drinking ran in my family and I wasn’t going to carry it on.

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

            My parents rarely do. I did my young and wild thing, then I was done. I don’t see the excitement behind it. I will have a glass of wine now and then, because I like the taste.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I really try not to either, as I never know how I will react, even without my med.

    • David Jr.

      Carrots and Oranges.

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

        Nice choice! Carrots and ranch actually sound good right now!

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

        I’m starting to wonder about you. You’re tall, apparently good looking (your personality shows through, so your looks don’t really matter), work with littles, eat healthy, and you’re a wrestling fan. It’s a very strange combination.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I normally dream about a man like that.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            As I a woman.

        • David Jr.

          You’re starting to wonder about me? I have to get my 5 a day (thanks to Rachel Coleman).

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

            Oy! Taking it wrong. It’s a very interesting combo in one person. I like it. I complimented you.

          • David Jr.

            I didn’t mean it to sound like that. Thank you for the compliment.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    As a side note, for anyone who has been following me on FB, I want to thank you all for the overwhelming support you have shown me. I can’t promise I am through the worst of it, but knowing that I have friends like the community here supporting me is all I need to get through it.

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

      Yeah, you know if you keep it up I’ll slap you down. Or send this BS weather we’ve been getting your way. That would be even worse!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’ll take the weather!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Stay strong Jesse. We all have days where we feel like everything is wrong and that nothing is right, but there’s always a light somewhere, even through the hardest times.

  • The Breaker

    So hey it’s Final Resolution tonight! Though I’m a little bit less psyched now because I got spoiled about the new champ while reading Wikipedia. Apparently they don’t have much regard for stuff that happens on pre-taped wrestling programs!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Of course not!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we will have the Feast or Fired cases tonight as well!

    • David Jr.

      My guess is Chavo is getting fired.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I still hold to Case #3 being unlucky, Gunner with WHC, Chavo on Tag, and Ion with the X.

    • The Breaker

      Such a stupid concept, but at least it provides a little intrigue.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Tonight, hell will be Dixieland!” Isn’t that every week?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else notice Dixie’s “VIP Room” last week looks like a Kindergarten classroom?

    • Alex Gallardo

      Budget cuts: they affect everything in TNA.

    • The Breaker

      It’s probably where she learned how to run a company!

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

    Mags brought up 10-10-10!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This promo almost seals it for me. All of the talk about money feels like it isn’t directed at Hardy, but at AJ. Still holding that Mags wins it.

    • The Breaker

      Interesting. I didn’t think about it that way.

  • The Breaker

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if Magnus is the one who sells out?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’d be normal wrestling logic!

    • David Jr.

      I almost assumed that, because ever since Vince Russo, we have to have a swerve in wrestling.

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

        We didn’t have a swerve at the end of TLC.

        • The Breaker

          In a weird way, it was almost a swerve that they didn’t try to swerve us!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, the swerve WAS the clean ending, as everyone expected something screwy to happen!

          • The Breaker

            … Isn’t that what I said? lol

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Lol, I meant to click KB!

          • The Breaker

            Broke out the adult beverages already? lol

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

            Yes, yes he did! Though I’m spacy tonight and I’m drinking grape soda!

          • The Breaker

            All that sugar might be clouding your concentration!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Who loves Grape Soda? Ken loves Grape Soda! Is it true? HMM-MMM!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I started as I posted the Welcome!

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

            As much as I was expecting, I like that there wasn’t a big swerve.

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

            As much as I was expecting, I like that there wasn’t a big swerve.

          • The Breaker

            The straightforward booking was definitely a breath of fresh air.

          • The Breaker

            The straightforward booking was definitely a breath of fresh air.

        • David Jr.

          That’s true.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, we’re opening with Angle/Roode? Holy heck, this is going to be a hot episode!

    • The Breaker

      Makes sense. Hook them in with an awesome match, and keep their interest for the title bout at the end.

      • Alex Gallardo

        That’s how I would run WWE and TNA TV. I would choose to have the show start off with a high paced and exciting match (an X Division match for the most part) and then set that pumped up energy for the rest of the show.

    • David Jr.

      With this being a 2 out of 3 falls match and the World Title match. These are probably going to take up most of the show, so split them up.

  • Alex Gallardo

    This is going to be an interesting opening match.

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

      Is Ric still on to cover?

      • Alex Gallardo

        You’re talking to me?

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

          Sorry, wrong Alex. I am really spacy tonight!

          • Alex Gallardo

            No problem, we all make mistakes sometimes. I would always just check the profile picture because you know I’m the only Alex on this site that is a Miley Cyrus fan.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And thus I remember why I hated Ion and Chavo…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, anyone see this going 2-0? I’m calling it for Roode 2-1. After all of the “Injury” angles they pulled with Kurt, I could see it again tonight.

    • David Jr.

      That would be different, I know it has happened before but majority the time it’s 2-1 in 2 out of 3 matches.

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

        It is an interesting thought, but maybe because they’re always 2-1 they will try it?

        • David Jr.

          I guess not.

        • David Jr.

          I guess not.

        • David Jr.

          I guess not.

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

            Bummer. Felt very Super Angle.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sadly not.

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

        It is an interesting thought, but maybe because they’re always 2-1 they will try it?

    Roode – 4:13

      Angle – 9:56

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

        Roode – 14:48

  • The Breaker

    Not really digging the first fall but I guess it’s working up towards telling a good story.

    Angle keeps turning interesting colors.

    • David Jr.

      You looks purple to me.

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

        It’s the grape soda.

        • David Jr.

          I I don’t know why I typed you. I meant he, as in Kurt Angle looks purple to me.

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

            lol That’s what I was seeing too.

          • David Jr.

            I’m worse than drunk right now. Today was our Christmas Party at day care. So we had sugared up hyper, excited screaming kids today. Imagine spending with 16 kids age 2 – 5 yrs of age with only one other person with you.

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

            No, thank you! I like kids, but older than that, and not that many.

          • David Jr.

            I like all age kids (and they usually all seem to like me) I just don’t like children parties.

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

            I don’t either. I’d rather deal with tween and teens.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ve noticed it more now that he isn’t tanning as much.

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

        Seems like less fake tan and more real tan.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That’s what I was thinking too. He looks less orange.

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

            But darker. Almost burnt.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Roode busting out the Crippler Crossface already!

    Roode busting out the Crippler Crossface already!

  • David Jr.

    Kurt Angle is one of the best in ring wrestlers of all time, but his finishing moves are weak because how many time people kick out of them or get free. How many times do you watch a Kurt Angle match and see and Angle Slam or Ankle Lock and think this match is over?

  • The Breaker

    Both of Roode’s pins were dirty! It indeed pays to be Roode!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #GotScroode?

      • The Breaker

        Angle did, and us too.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Roode steals it… If this wasn’t taped, I’d say that it felt very ripped off.

    • The Breaker

      Considering that it was Roode and Angle, I’m somewhat underwhelmed. I wanted something at the level of Bryan and Orton from RAW!

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

        I expected it to be longer – that’s why I was timing it.

        • The Breaker

          Yeah I’m pretty let down that it didn’t even go 15 minutes.

  • David Jr.

    Shouldn’t a show called final resolution be in January?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Great, now Kurt seems to be on the fence! Can TNA keep anyone?

  • The Breaker

    Angle’s acting like AJ after he lost his chance at the TNA title!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And that is a really bad thing!

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

        “And that’s a good thing!”

      • The Breaker

        I’m worried about what it means for Angle.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And that seals it! EC3 is fired!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Boy, EY’s wrapping is as bad as mine!

    • David Jr.

      Mine is bad too, it’s a guy thing. (I wrapped my sister’s birthday present using duct tape)

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

        Usually a gift every once in a while is overly duct in this house. Depends on which child we’re in the mood to mess with.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I just do the really small item in 30 boxes thing!

        • David Jr.

          Do you call it Duct or Duck?

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

            Duct. It doesn’t quack!

          • David Jr.

            It was originally called Duck because it didn’t get wet like a duck’s feathers. They even used it in World War II as a sealing tape on ammunation cases.

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

            It was used for duct work. There’s a brand called Duck.

          • David Jr.

            I have a book on the history of duck/duct tape. Well it was my dad’s.

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

            I know it’s called both, I just said it was originally called Duck.

          • The Breaker

            That’s what I remember reading.

  • The Breaker

    I don’t blame EC3 for using his theme as a ringtone. It’s a good song!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’m so happy Madison is back, I hung up my banner of her!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    One more gift?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh crap! Janice!

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

      I love the name and where it came from.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I guess I missed that.

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

          Janice is Dixie’s mother’s name.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh yeah! And like the weapon, I’m sure she is a cold, prickly B*&!#

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

            Exactly.

  • The Breaker

    So I guess the Joseph Park/Abyss thing can be described as a Fight Club situation in which he has a split personality but imagines him as a separate person? (And instead of being caused by insomnia it’s related to excessive bloodletting?)

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Aye sir!

  • The Breaker

    Janice is ridiculous. It looks like an item you’d use in Dead Rising 2.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Now with Dead Rising 3 and the 5 tier upgrading weapons, I wonder what Super Janice would look like? Saw blades, a battery electrifying the spikes, and flaming?

      • The Breaker

        And it would also have a miniature gatling gun attached to it somehow.

  • David Jr.

    Why not do this in the ring than some secluded room?

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

      Because it’s Dixie logic. Similar to wrestling logic, but makes even less sense.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Really, we need Dixie here? That ensures it for me. EC3 is gone.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    1 for 1!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      2 for 2!

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

      If I was writing the BZ, that would be my title, “I’m Keepin’ The Briefcase!”

  • The Breaker

    I don’t like the reality show vibe. It’s really cheesy.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And Sting’s the reason for the reality show BS? BAKA!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, Sting! What the heck!? This is just getting stupid!

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

      Agreed! Time for him to go to the E!

  • The Breaker

    Sting was talking about Chavo with the entitlement stuff? lol

    • David Jr.

      Anyone think Chavo would have a job in TNA if his Uncle wasn’t Eddie?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope!

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

        No, but I will also say he’s been booked terribly! Not saying he’s done anything even remotely decent in TNA, but creative and booking of him has also blown goats.

        • David Jr.

          I agree he’s booked terribly but he’s no where near as good as Eddie Guerrero, but I think you agree with that.

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

            Honestly, I was shocked he was allowed to the ring (apparently) drunk off his ass, but that’s TNA for you.

            Have we seen Chavito wrestle since that night?

          • David Jr.

            I can’t remember a match of his.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Other than the FoF match, nope.

  • The Breaker

    End of the line for Chavo!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, Chavo got fired? I don’t know why I’m surprised. It just felt like something they’d try to twist.

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

      And not #3. So it was a twist?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        #3 now has fallen to 2-2 in firings.

    What’s up with Sting? That was just bizarre.

    Oh Madison! How I’ve missed you!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Odd spotlighting on this match.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Does ODB have a hole in her panties?

    • David Jr.

      Yes, I thought I saw that too.

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

      I think they are a black lace/mesh without enough under them, or the under-layer has slid.

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

        Looking more, I do think it’s just the fabric of her underroos.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “I got a lot of problems but money’s not one of them Mike.” It wouldn’t be for me either if I got paid $100,000 just to voiceover matches!

  • David Jr.

    Madison Rayne looks good for someone who’s a new mother.

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

      She looks amazing!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Madison’s still got a little bit of her baby weight, but that is perfectly fine! It looks good on her! I just miss the AF rank on her trunks.

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

      I think she looks better now. She was too thin before, and she was working out too much for the competitions. I was shocked she was having her period and could get preggers being so trim before.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Fun fact: The reason I have a Twitter acct is because she was holding an AMA on Twitter and I wanted to know why she wore the rank. Come to find out, her husband is in.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Spud kissing Dixie’s bum is just awful. And Dixie doesn’t have another copy of the Title? Or they don’t still have Hardy’s abominations to hang? BAKA!!!

  • The Breaker

    Wonder what that new belt will look like.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Just like the old one, just duller. Just like WWE did. #NoOriginality

    • David Jr.

      It will have Dixie’s face on it.

      • The Breaker

        Talk about devaluing the title!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And be known as the Dixieland World Title.

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

        I’m surprised that the wheel didn’t have her face on it.

  • The Breaker

    Hardy referenced Victory Road 2011!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hot damn! The passion from Hardy is awesome!

    • The Breaker

      I’m not usually impressed with his mic work, but that was well done.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Same here.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Everything Hardy has, he owes to her? He was a household name LONG before he came to TNA!

    • David Jr.

      Undertaker made him more of a name than Dixie Carter ever did.

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

        What a match!

        That one match turned Jeff into a icon. If he had failed after that, he would have solely been at fault.

            Thanks Jesse, appreciate the link.

            It was July 1st 2002.

        • David Jr.

          When the Undertaker raised his hand
          It was getting an endorsement for one of the all time greats.

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

            It was also the way he looked at Hardy and shook his head. You knew he was in awe of that scrawny kid standing up to all he had to give. Stacy is still fairly new to wrestling – only about 6 years – so he hasn’t seen some of these moments that we have tucked away and only bring out at such times. I want him to see and understand some of these moments that I love so much from some of my faves.

    Dixie is claiming she’s done all this for Hardy? He was nothing before TNA? I snorted on my computer screen.

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

      Like VKM wouldn’t take Hardy right back!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Without a second thought and at double the rate!

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

          Would he really with Triple H’s new focus on talent?

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

            I think he would. I really do.

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

            I think Hardy has a lot to teach younger wrestlers in a lot of ways, especially in the ring.

            Jeff Hardy. Not Matt Hardy.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hardy is still such a known name and a Merch draw that I’m positive of it.

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

            Can’t really speak for WWE. At any rate, Jeff probably wouldn’t go back anyway.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Probably not, unless it was for a swan song.

  • David Jr.

    Why does TNA have to take a original idea like a ladder match and cage match and combine them? Hardy vs. Magnus don’t need to be saturated in over booking.

  • The Breaker

    So… if there’s a ladder at the end, why even bother stopping each other from leaving the cage?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      THANK YOU!

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

      Because that’s how it’s booked!

  • David Jr.

    The way Jeff was trying to go throught the camera hole on the cage, made me think of Alien. In TNA no one can hear you scream.

  • David Jr.

    Watch where you step in Dixie Land.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OH MAH GOD!!!

  • The Breaker

    Hardy just killed Magnus!

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

    That Hardy still hits these moves leaves me in awe!

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

    That Hardy still hits these moves leaves me in awe!

  • The Breaker

    WHY DIDN’T THEY BOTH CLIMB OUT LIKE 15 MINUTES AGO?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like Hardy is hurt again…

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

    EC3 doesn’t know how to take the twist!

  • The Breaker

    What the heck is going on?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The fix was in… For MAGNUS!!!

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

        Are we really shocked? He’s been riding the fence for a while now.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah, it was just weird how Hardy was standing in front of Dixie, taking his sweet time getting up that ladder. It’s like he knew Spud needed more time to make his way out there!

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

          I did love the way Hardy flicked his sweat at her though.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And the way she was legitimately disgusted by it!

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

            As if!

          • The Breaker

            Dixie should’ve clung to his leg like she did Hogan’s!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    If Hardy isn’t concussed, it is a bloody Christmas miracle!

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

    17:44 So it was longer than the opening match.

  • Patrick

    Congrats to Magnus. YES!

  • JJ

    Who is going to tag with EC3? Is he going to get someone like Johnny Curtis, or one of the new superstars tna is going after, hopefully someone good.
