Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling kicks off with a video package showing different graphics about an apocalypse and showing some robots all standing together as they watch what a screen that is going on in front of them. The screen shows the hype of Magnus vs. Angle and Roode vs. Hardy for tonight. It is the TNA World Title Tournament. Only two will advice tonight. Who will win the tournament and take the gold?

The camera shows the Impact Zone and the fans are on their feet. They are cheering and are ready to go! Mike Tenay runs down the major matches for tonight.

Kurt Angle’s music plays. He comes out on the stage as the crowd roars. He walks down the ramp and gets in the ring. Kurt grabs a mic. He states that Thanksgiving was last week where it is time to be thankful for your families and blessings. Kurt is thankful for his health and the support from all of the fans for his quest for the TNA Hall of Fame. Kurt states the World Title Tournament is his path to prove himself. He went to war with Austin Aries. He gave him the fight of his life. However, his next opponent is much more closer to him. He calls Magnus out. Magnus’ music hits and he walks down the ramp. The fans clap and cheer for him. Magnus gets in the ring and grabs a mic.

Kurt asks Magnus what happened last week. Magnus left him high and dry against 4 wrestlers. Magnus states he has more respect for Angle than anyone else in this business. Magnus went into a war of his own. He got beat up in a Falls Count Anywhere match with Samoa Joe. He still decided to fight beside Kurt in the match. He hurt his knee last week. It buckled several times. He had to make a decision on what to do. Kurt knows how that goes. Kurt says champions fight through pain and injuries. Kurt’s knee is bad and he is fighting. Kurt asks Magnus if he has a heart of a champion. Magnus says he has heart and hunger… hunger to be the best and to be number 1. He has hunger to be World Heavyweight Champion for the first time and he will prove it tonight. Kurt says they are friends. Magnus was part of the Mafia. Magnus is in the way of his destiny. So is Roode and Hardy. If Magnus wants to be World Champion, he has to go through Kurt. All of a sudden, Bobby Roode’s music plays and he comes out on the stage. Roode has a mic in hand.

Roode says he gets it. He understands that you need a heart and to be hungry to be World Champion. He had that but didn’t get the job done. You also need killer instinct. He (Roode) processes it. Roode smashed a beer bottle of his best friend’s head… he has the instinct. He has his match next and what he already did to James Storm in their match, just imagine what he will do to Hardy. Kurt knows what Roode is like, but Magnus will never ever be World Champion. Magnus wants to go after him, but Kurt holds him back. Just then, Jeff Hardy’s music plays and he comes out. He gets the crowd pumped and then grabs a table on the stage. He drags it down the ramp. He grabs a mic. He tells Roode that he has to go through him and all of the creatures first. All he has to do to move to the finals is to put Roode through a table! He gets the crowd more hyped as he runs around the ring to high five them.

    Hello everyone! You ready for Impact?

    You’re stuck with me tonight as Jesse had to drive his brother to the airport.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Eh, we can go one day without Jesse.

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

        I’m one handed, so I’m going to have trouble keeping up.

        • David Jr.

          You handle Smackdown fine without Jesse.

            Thanks, but SD usually has much fewer comments. It’s only been these past couple weeks that we have beaten Impact. And I have to admit that I’m speaking most of these words and not typing them, because there is no way I’d keep up otherwise.

      Hey Kendra. They’re determining the new champ this week right? Kind of weird that they’d do that on a taped show. I’m a little worried.

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

        I have to admit that since I’m not writing the BZ this week, so I looked at the spoiler. I will not say a word about it, because that’s the rule, and I’m the one who made up that rule.

        • Alex Gallardo

          Sadly I heard of the spoiler thanks to Facebook. Could people try to keep these spoilers more private?

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

            Richard was quite obvious, and usually is, when he’s posting a spoiler, so I knew what I was getting into. I just could not wait, I had to know.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Let’s leave at that. I don’t want to ruin Impact for anyone who’s looking forward to seeing the new champ.

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

            Honestly, I’m excited to see how it goes down. Just because I know who is going to hold the belt doesn’t mean I know how it will happen.

        • The Breaker

          Were you trying to spare yourself from TNA possibly disappointing you big time during the show?

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

            No, I knew that I was not going to be writing the BZ, therefore I did not need to hold the surprise for my writing. And just because I know who wins, don’t know how.

          • The Breaker

            I can’t do that to myself. It takes away the suspense. I would only read a spoiler if I didn’t care enough to watch the show as it aired.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I agree, it really kills my excitement for a show if I know what’s going to happen.

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

            Spoilers really don’t bother me most of the time, even for things such as movies and books. For me the suspense is in how it all comes about.

          • The Breaker

            I mean you can still enjoy the wrestling all the same, but to me the ending means a lot. As for movies and books, I don’t want to know about any important turns in the plot in advance. I guess knowing some of what happens can make it fun to predict how it goes down, but I would rather see things unfold as the author/writer/director intended them to.

    Hey everyone! Hope you are all ready tonight! I am back at it after taking last week off. Ric Santos will be writing the IW BZ for the show too!

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

      I’m very excited to see what he has to say. Is he all set up?

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

        Yep! Made sure everything was squared away.

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

          Thanks, I really appreciate the help – yours and Ric’s.

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

            No problem, Kendra!

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

            No problem, Kendra!

  • The Breaker

    Is this a parody of the Mac commercial? Weird…

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

    Angle looks as though he has sort of a black eye. His left eye around the outside it looks shadowed in a way.

  • David Jr.

    Say it Angle. Say you won a gold medal with a Broken Fricken Neck.

  • The Breaker

    I’m not a fan of tables matches.

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

      Only when done right, and they so rarely look good. Like anything, with the right people, it can be beautiful. Wait, am I defending a gimmick match?

      • David Jr.

        The only great table match I can think of is Hardys vs. Dudleys Royal Rumble 2000. which is almost 14 years ago.

      • The Breaker

        It was a logical defense. No harm done. It could be good, but I’m not crossing my fingers. At least with Hardy you’re guaranteed to at least see a couple nice looking spots.

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

          Right, Hardy is better than most at that type of bumps. Like taking that table to the face and selling it. But yeah, I expect some solid high flying Hardy bumps.

  • The Breaker

    Hardy’s starting his own chants again. SMH.

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

    Brian shrugging over the two of them through the table was great!

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

    Back and forth battle in this match. Felt like I was changing whoever was on the offensive side of things every 30 seconds.

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

      I love that the two of them went through together! Nice change of pace.

        Curious to see what Brian does. Not sure if he is as tough as his daddy.

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

          He absolutely does not have Earl’s stones. I don’t think he could’ve handled the Montréal screw job the way Earl did.

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

            I think Earl, deep down inside, loves to say he is part of that.

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

            I agree, but he was so in awe when I gave him mad respect the day I met him. He really did not seem to know how to handle it. I think he’s just so used to catching crap from the fans that when he gets respect for his work, it is a bit shocking.

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

    Nice swanton from Hardy!

    • David Jr.

      I’m afraid to see what Jeff Hardy’s body is going to be like when he turn’s 50.

    • The Breaker

      Not sure why he would do that in a tables match though, unless Roode was on the table.

  • The Breaker

    I hate how they fall backwards into tables like that. Such a stupid way to end it, especially in a title tournament match. And I really think Roode should have won.

  • The Breaker

    Why doesn’t Dixie just get her daddy to write her a check for a new belt? From her perspective, that would make a whole lot more sense than bringing AJ back.

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

      It would make sense if her mommy hadn’t cut TNA off, or at least down, the way she has.

    Brian has to count three on his dad? Interesting…

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

      I don’t always agree with what TNA does, but I give them credit for trying.

      • The Breaker

        It makes EC3 look more despicable, which is a good thing. Before he was just an arrogant Miz prototype heel.

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

          I will give EC3 props, he’s working what he’s been given to work with.

  • David Jr.

    “Earl Hebner lays down for absolutely nobody !” Oh wait that’s HBK.

  • The Breaker

    Okay so why is Brian so hesitant to count three? EC3 didn’t even touch Earl. And I don’t think Earl cares about taking a loss on his record…

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

      But I love the way Earl had his head in his hands on the apron after it was all said and done. When Earl finally retires, the industry will be a sadder place for, especially since he won’t be retiring from the WWE.

      • The Breaker

        True. I kind of forget sometimes, but he is a legend.

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

          Earl is someone who belongs in the WWE HOF.

          • David Jr.

            And to think Earl didn’t always look like that. I wonder what he looked like before the plastic surgery.

  • The Breaker

    Why did Daniels say “Flux Capacitor”? I don’t see the link to BttF…

    • David Jr.

      Isn’t that the name of Kazarian’s move?

      • The Breaker

        Is it? I have no idea.

        I just checked. You’re right.

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

          Both Back To The Future and Flux Capacitor are Kaz moves. I honestly had to go look it up. Love Kaz, but don’t know the names of his moves.

    Sorry everyone, the site isn’t allowing me to type coverage. Not sure what the error is.

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

      I was having troubles during Raw the other night as well. Things were loading very slowly, and I got a couple of error messages. I figured it was a one time thing, but it could be more. We should probably mention this to Richard.

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

        I did tell him about it. He said it has been buggy. It’s still not working for me.

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

          Strange, it seemed to get back on track fairly quickly for me on Monday. I am completely clueless when it comes to computers, So I’m really no help.

  • The Breaker

    They should’ve retaken that scene until Sam Shaw got it right. Horrible acting.

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

      That really was pretty horrible. Sam did a great job with his OCD segments, but this just blew.

      • The Breaker

        When it started I thought he would go over and start lining up Christy’s silverware perfectly or something.

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

          I think he should stick with the OCD and stopped trying to be an intimidating douche bag.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, it was a weird turn. And he just doesn’t pull it off well at all. He couldn’t even keep a straight face.

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

    I did quick updates of what happened between the Ethan Carter III match to Dixie’s package segment. Sorry.

  • The Breaker

    Next week they’re playing Deal or No Deal on Impact?

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

      That would be better than Feasts Or Fired! I really had hoped that had gone the way of the dodo.

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

    Oh, goodness, no! Feast or Fired is one of the lamest things TNA has ever done, and that includes the horrible turkey costume.

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

      No, I love it!

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

      No, I love it!

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

        Why?

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

          I don’t know… I think it brings that nostalgia back to what TNA was like.

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

            But it’s one of those things that TNA does that hasn’t seemed like a good idea from the start. One of those mistakes they never seem to learn from.

    • David Jr.

      Feast or FIred or the Reverse Battle Royal?

  • The Breaker

    Looks like Park, Park & Park is Vandelay Industries!

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

    She said Parks, Parks & Parks. I thought they dropped the S.

    • The Breaker

      I guess Hogan printed his business cards.

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

        Or like Sam, they should have re-shot that until she got it right.

        • The Breaker

          It seems like TNA never fixes those little things, even on their taped shows. You would think having a nationally aired TV show would motivate you to not be so lazy.

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

            I guess that’s why so many people say they look bush league. Sometimes there videos first so wonderfully produced, but other times, like this segment, they drop the ball in such a huge and obvious way.

  • gunshot225

    So who pays her?

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

    Super Eric?

  • The Breaker

    Luckily for Joseph, it’s not illegal to impersonate a lawyer.

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

      Hasn’t Aby been wrestling for thirteen years? Obvious much?

      • David Jr.

        Well not quite because TNA won’t be around for 13 years until 2015.

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

          He had to train.

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

          I fixed my typo, I changed it to wrestling. I am speaking this rather than typing it, and it seems like my brain can’t keep up tonight. As soon as I posted it,. I realized what I’d said and went back to fix it

          • David Jr.

            I thought the same thing, and had to look it up, then realized it.

      • The Breaker

        It’s beyond obvious, but I’m interested to see how the reveal goes.

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

          I am quite excited for this. I have loved the Joseph storyline, and have always loved Aby, so this has been a lot of fun for me.

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

    I cannot believe that Jesse is still on the TNA roster, still in a TNA wrestling ring. What is even worse is that Ion is outside playing DJ.

    • David Jr.

      Not only on the roster, but a champion, too.

    • The Breaker

      Right? They should switch.

  • The Breaker

    The TNA tag division has no life right now. I guess that has something to do with roster size. I do wish they’d figure something out though. The one in WWE is blowing them away at the moment.

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

    Sting – I think you’ve heard my albums.

  • David Jr.

    I’m Sting, I’m sure you’ve heard my albums. I laughed at that line.

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

    They got Irvine on Impact! Dang! Good for him!

    • The Breaker

      That was funny!

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

        Irvine actually did a really great job. I’m going to have to make sure Ellie sees this next week, she’s a big foodie and loves Irvine.

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

        • The Breaker

          I like his shows as well. He seems like such an amiable fellow.

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

            I was quite impressed with how much of the heel personality he exuded there. I honestly never thought we would see him on Impact, but now that we have I’m interested to see what else he can do. No, I’m not expecting him to get in the ring, and I imagine a lot of fans don’t know who is beyond being Kim’s husband, but he sold it there. Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of him.

          • The Breaker

            I think he’d handle himself well on the mic. We know he can shout and get up in people’s face without a problem!

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

            Irvine is a lot better on mic than his wife, that’s for sure.

          • The Breaker

            No doubt about that! She’s not at all believable as a villain. Fortunately, she’s also the best female wrestler in the world.

          • The Breaker

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

            It’s not whether she’s a believable heel, or a believable face, just that she’s not a great speaker. Lita was great the ring, but was horrible on mic.

          • The Breaker

            Good point. You would think with how long she’s been around she’d be a lot better.

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

            Some people just do not warm up to it. Again, look at Lita.

  • The Breaker

    That whole thing was annoying to watch, especially Velvet playing to the mirror.

    • David Jr.

      Tazz’s line to follow was dumb, too.

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

      I’m not liking the way that Sabs is making Velvet look like such an idiot. I understand where they’re going with it, but it doesn’t really seem to have much of a future.

      • The Breaker

        Yeah. It’s not within her character to have such little self-esteem. I honestly couldn’t care less about their on-screen relationship. And there was a Facebook post on Velvet’s page where she obliterated kayfabe. I’m done with all of it.

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

          Where can they really go? It’s not like they can build a feud between the two, so what else is there? Okay, so they can break up, it’s not like it’s real life, they will still be together when the cameras are off. The whole thing is just lame, and leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

          • The Breaker

            He’s already been treating her like she’s disposable so a break-up wouldn’t do anything for his character.

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

            As I said, the storyline makes no sense.

  • David Jr.

    So who’s end game to Gail Kim’s open invintation?

    • The Breaker

      Awesome Kong!

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

        Pipe dreams, but I would love to see it.

        • David Jr.

          Aren’t some of the highest rated Impact Segments ever Gail Kim vs. Awesome Kong? so they’d never bring Kong back.

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

            It’s not about them bringing her back. It’s also whether she wants to.

          • David Jr.

            If I were her, I wouldn’t want to go back. I know Hogan’s gone, but still.

          • David Jr.

            If I were her, I wouldn’t want to go back. I know Hogan’s gone, but still.

          • The Breaker

            The door is still open for a WWE return, so why wouldn’t she go back there?

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

            They had issues with her weight, but she had surgery and has trimmed down quite a bit, so hopefully a return is imminent.

          • The Breaker

            It’s kind of dumb that WWE would get on her for that. It’s a distinctive look for her, and it’s not like she was out of shape and couldn’t go.

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

            I imagine her cardio is much better now, she looks beautiful. She will never be a skinny little twig of a thing, but she looks a lot healthier – both physically and mentally. She was really in bad shape and needed time away for her own mental well-being.

            I am not defending where the WWE is coming from, but knowing how they think is a company I am not surprised.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah. In-ring skill obviously isn’t a must when scouting for new Divas.

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

            Hasn’t been for too long, pretty much starting with Kelly Kelly, and we all saw how well that worked out.

          • David Jr.

            I’m sure after the miscarriage, she needed to step out the lime light for a bit, too.

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

            I agree, I think at this point the WWE is quite possible and hopefully where she ends up.

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

            lol, too true! I am not sure Kia would go back at this point. I think she has her sights set on the WWE, and I don’t blame her. She has been losing weight, looks fantastic, and has been working hard. I think her return to the WWE should be the way to go. I would love to see what Kia and Paige could do together and that ring.

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

      That scary thing that follows her around? Most likely, but I sure hope not.

    Why would Dixie Carter have a dressing room, shouldn’t she have said office?

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

      It’s Dixie, I you really expecting any sort of common sense from her? Besides, if she says dressing room, it makes her feel like she’s actually needed on camera.

      • David Jr.

        Don’t know what I was thinking.

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

          It’s like saying wrestling and logic together, it just doesn’t makes sense.

    That box has to be full of garbage or something.

        Titus O’Neil’s vomit?

      Toy Belt from Toys R Us?

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

        That would be brilliant!

        • David Jr.

          I was right.

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

            That was great! And how did AJ see her open the fake belt on a taped show?

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

        And we have a winner!

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

    I saw elbow drop, look down at my computer, looked up again and saw another elbow drop. I know he has more moves of the match, it doesn’t look good for the future of TNA when that’s his big move of the match and we see it twice.

  • The Breaker

    It’s the toy belt!

    Okay so since it was just the toy belt, why did Dixie think the actual thing was there? The box would have to be a lot lighter!

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

      David nailed it!
