Impact Wrestling Results – 6/12/2014
From Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

A video package starts off by showing MVP, Bobby Lashley, and Kenny King. MVP talks about power and taking over. He says sometimes blood has to be spilled to get power. He brought his friend Bobby Lashley into the company. He is the Director of Wrestling Operations and can control the show. However, he has enemies against him.

Eric Young’s music plays and he comes through the curtain and on the stage. He walks down the ramp as the crowd cheers. EY gets in the ring and grabs a mic. Eric states in three days it will be him vs. MVP at Slammiversary. He wants MVP to come out, and he can bring his buddies as well as Dixie Carter if he wants. MVP’s music plays and here comes MVP. He walks out with King and Lashley behind him. MVP has a mic. They stand on the stage. MVP tells EY that there is no love lust between he and Dixie. He doesn’t have a friendship with Dixie. He is fighting EY at Slammiversary, not Dixie. EY states it will be them two fighting… or three, or four, or five. He knows King and Lashley will be part of the match. MVP says he is so amazing and while EY thinks he can beat him, MVP will be taking the TNA World Championship. MVP says EY can beat him at something like extreme fishing. EY then plugs his new show No Limits. EY just wants a request. MVP asks and EY states he wants a fair fight. As much as MVP wants to guarantee that, King has emotional outbreaks at times but Lashley can be contained. EY states he is talking to him man to man, not wrestler to wrestler. EY states if a bigger and better man wants to take the belt, so be it, but if he gets attacked from behind and outnumbered then that is not wrestling. That is garbage. EY will do absolutely anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. MVP thinks about that statement.

MVP says he is not an unreasonable man. He will grant him the choice of any stipulation for their match at Slammiversary. MVP says EY has to beat all three of them tonight. King states he is a loser and he can’t beat two of them. EY says he is not going to discount him, but he will try. EY asks if it is 2 or 3. King grabs the mic and says 2 but MVP pulls it away. He says if EY can beat any two of them then he can pick the stipulation. He won’t go far though. EY says he heard that so much in his life, but he has accomplished everything people said he couldn’t. He says MVP isn’t man enough to take the belt. MVP wants to introduce EY to his little friend… his first opponent, Bobby Lashley!

Magnus says he is fine with Jeff and his alter-ego fighting him because he has Bram. Willow states “we” again. Bram gets on the mic and says you are the same person.

Ethan starts to throw up and says this is making him sick. This issue needs to come to a head. The crowd chants, “Table, table, table, table.” Ethan says there is a time for tables. That is at Slammiversary in Carter country. He requests a table match against Bully at the PPV. Ray will put Dixie through a table over his dead body. Ray says, “Over your head body….” Ray states normally he should jump at the opportunity for a tables match, but since Ethan stated, “Over your head body…” and they will be in Dallas, Texas. How about do something they haven’t done in a long time. Ray challenges Ethan to a Texas Death match. Spud waves at Ethan’s face to cool him down. Ethan stares at the crowd and then at Ray.

      • David Jr.

        Start writing what? Did I miss something?

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

          Sorry! I forget that you’re not on FB. I’ve been up everyone’s bums about the releases.

          • David Jr.

            Even if I was, too busy with 1 and 2 year olds to even go on facebook when they happened.

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

            I know you work during the day, so I worry less about you when these things go down. But I would love to see what type of rhyme you can come up with for the released wrestlers, and the ref.

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

          I have a bunch of the 7-11 cups. I couldn’t find them for a bit, then realized that Stacy packed them away with my signed action figures and signed pics I have.

          • David Jr.

            I have 22 7-11 WWE cups.

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

  • CJ Blaze

    It’s show time!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    EY opening. This might be fun.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And EY is now down 0-1… BAKA

    • David Jr.

      What better way to head into your 2nd biggest show of the year (or is it 3rd? what’s suppose to be bigger Slamiversary or Lockdown?) than having your World Champion lose cleanly to a guy not in the title match.

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

        Gotta love TNA!

  • CJ Blaze

    Hey it’s Jeff-… ahem, Willow.

  • David Jr.

    I thought it was going to be Braden Walker.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Knock Knock!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ABYSS!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    He’s alive

    • Jesse Sherwood

      But the TV title still isn’t!

      • CJ Blaze

        It’s been a year right? Weird stuff.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That has to be James Mitchell doing the intro for The Menagerie!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So The Menagerie has their music the whole match… That is really annoying…

    • CJ Blaze

      I didn’t even know if the match was happening as I walked out of my room a minute.

  • David Jr.

    I can’t think of anyone who would be TNA’s Hall of Famer. Two that should Jeff Jarrett and AJ Styles, I couldn’t see them do it.

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

      They should be, but this is TNA and they really have screwed up a lot over the past year.

    • CJ Blaze

      I like Alex’s idea of Jeff Hardy. My early pick was Samoa Joe but that seems unlikely right now.

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

        I’m predicting Hardy. Just makes sense on many levels.

        • CJ Blaze

          It seems like the only logical choice at this point.

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

          I agree, even though there’s so many who are more worthy.

      • David Jr.

        The way TNA is going right now, it’s going to be Dixie Carter.

        • CJ Blaze

          UGH

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

          I’m close to done with TNA anyway, they pull that crap, and I’m done. I keep bringing people back, reminding them the reasons to watch, but if they do that, I’m done.

          • David Jr.

            Dixie Carter going into the TNA Hall of Fame before Vince McMahon going into the WWE Hall of Fame would be like if Bill Murray went to the NBA Hall of Fame before Michael Jordan.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            But… But… SPACE JAM!

          • David Jr.

            Yes! you got my reference.

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

            I did too, but Stacy didn’t. I know Ellie would have also. I love my little girl and how well rounded her pop culture is.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “Just another Thursday night in the Impact Zone.” Didn’t the announcers sound that apathetic in WCW’s dying days?

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

      I love listening to the announcers during the 2001 WCW PPVs!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Tessmacher sighting!

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

    That whole match + segment with The Menagerie gave me a headache!

    • CJ Blaze

      If I was writing live coverage, I would’ve muted my TV.

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

        If I was writing the live coverage of TNA, I’d have had a mental breakdown by now. I don’t know how Alex does it.

        • CJ Blaze

          Haha true!

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

            Then again, there’s some Mondays that I hate the WWE for going to three hours for Raw.

          • CJ Blaze

            I’m lucky to have just the one hour on Tuesday

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

            Three hours it way too much. As for how I write the TNA coverage, I can’t answer that as of late!

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

            I admitted to Gesus earlier that I don’t read anyone’s results but my own, because I’ve read too much crap on other sites. I’m really snotty about my results after 11+ years of doing it. I went back and read one of my earliest ones and almost cried at how bad it was.

            Though I will admit to posting someone vs ____ and completely forget the other person in the match. I do that almost once a week.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DANG! The time off has been good on Brooke!

  • CJ Blaze

    Brooke reminds me of Eve Torres… anyone else think that or just me?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Spud is awesome!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DNA? What the heck?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we get a bleep!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This feels like a nice send off for Brooke.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I see Gunner’s dad in the audience again!

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

    I just turned on Impact to find them announcing a huge match for Sunday. Nothing like waiting! Though I have to say EC3 has grown so much on mic. He has personality, and can talk. Sad to see that he’s not in the WWE the way he’s working the mic.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TEXAS DEATH MATCH!!! YES!

    • CJ Blaze

      So what does that mean?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No rules, No quarter. Only way to win is when your opponent can’t answer a ten count after being pinned or submitted.

        • CJ Blaze

          Ok, I figured it was along those lines.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If you want to see a great one, you need to see Jerry Lawler and Dutch Mantell vs. “Superstar” Bill Dundee and Austin Idol’s 26 Fall record Texas Death Match. It went over an hour and a half!

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

            Is it on the Network?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, I’m looking for a link on Youtube for it. It was CWA, and Jerry Lawler didn’t keep tapes until the 90s.

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

            Crap!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I can’t find one of the full match, but here is the recap video.

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Exn1PA4-r3g

          • David Jr.

            Didn’t he use the same tape over and over again to tape his show? I pretty sure I remember reading that in his book.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep! It was $200 per tape, so he had about 4 of them that he sent around to the different stations that had the broadcasts of the shows.

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

            2nd big wrestling thing you learned today. You’re having a better day and learning more important things than if you were in school!

            Sorry, I know I’m a bad influence. I’m just so sick of Sam’s teachers right now. 2 more days!

          • CJ Blaze

            Haha, it’s true. Today has been eye-opening with everything that has happened in the wrestling world.

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

            That’s good. It helps in your writing, and learning about the industry as a whole.

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

            Who needs school?! Haha

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

      Someone who understands history should write an article about the top Texas Death Matches through the years.

      Who wants it? David Jr., or Jesse?

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

        Actually, David Jr., you were looking for ideas. The best and worst of obscure gimmick matches could be a lot of fun.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        #1: Jerry Lawler and Dutch Mantell vs. “Superstar” Bill Dundee and Austin Idol.

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

    Bully Ray made my headache go away! Thanks Bully!

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

      I wrote in my RIB that RVD is the longest running wrestler working TV on a regular basis. He started in 1990. Bully is next on the list in 91, then Trip and Kane in 92 (I think). But Bully has been more regularly on TV than RVD. That Bully can still go the way he an, after being in ECW is just insane!

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

        Now that’s some great facts right there! Didn’t even know. I would consider RVD more of a part-time guy with his 3 month contract signings but I know what you mean. While he and Ray put their bodies on the line so much, they learned some great stuff in ECW!

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

          Other than them, it’s Big Show in 1995. (I went back and check, I was right on the other dates.)

          I only really think Bully, Kane, and Show as full time. Three big guys while Rey is out with his knees!

      • David Jr.

        What about Goldust? or does he not count because he’s been fired more time than most.

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

          Nope, I completely screwed up! You are right. He does count. RVD wasn’t always on TV, or with a company. I will have to state that I screwed up next week in RIB, though I asked for help coming up with others. I knew I was missing someone. Goldy debuted in 1988, so he’s the longest.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, if a trainer was really concerned about a back injury, he’d be pulled from the matches. I hate when they treat us like idiots.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here come the train wrecks of the KO division…

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

    TBP on announce? Someone muzzle Love, please!!!

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

      Tenay looks happy with Sky all cuddled up.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I should have gone to the club tonight… Xtreme Midget Wrestling has to be better than this!

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

      I would have gone, but I’m so live wrestling deprived up here.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You get more live shows than I do. This is the first indy show we’ve had all year.

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

          I’ve been to two without you, and while I saw AJ, you saw more big names than we’ve had in a year.

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

    Since we’re all writers here, who’s in for TNA Predicts?

    • David Jr.

      When would you need them by?

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

        Noon Saturday.

        • David Jr.

          If I have time, I’ll do it.

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

            I need a yes or no so I can know who I’m waiting on, and so I don’t ask too many people.

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

        Interested? Full or quick?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’ll have mine to you by tomorrow night. All I need is a full card lineup.

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

        Thanks! Full or short?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Full.

    • CJ Blaze

      Can I send in quick picks?

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

        Absolutely! You know where to find me!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Lashley vs. Joe
    EC3 vs. Bully Ray in a Texas Death Match
    Aries vs. King
    Love vs Kim KO Title
    Storm vs Anderson
    Willow vs. Magnus
    EY vs MVP TNA Title Match
    6 Man X Ladder Match: Sanada, Manik, The Wolves, Tigre Uno, Crazzy Steve
    Von Erichs vs. ???

    • David Jr.

      Von Erichs?

      • CJ Blaze

        I don’t know much about them but they are supposed to be in a tag match.

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

          That’s some research you should do at some point. Big wrestling family, but such tragedy.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Amen sis… Almost enough to say they may have been cursed at one point.

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

            Agreed. I don’t know a lot about them, but enough to know how great they were, and how sad the whole thing is.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I know a decent amount thanks to Jerry Lawler and the Von Erich’s partnership to try to combine promotions in the late 80s.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        The sons of Kevin von Erich

    • David Jr.

      Isn’t it Willow and Abyss vs. Magnus and Bram?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They just said on the promo vid Magnus vs. Willow. Bram and Abyss are in the corners.

  • CJ Blaze

    For the first time in forever I have changed my pic to two of my favorite wrestlers…

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

      Do tell!

      • CJ Blaze

        CM Punk and Seth Rollins. Should change if you refresh the page.

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

          I see it now.

    • David Jr.

      I usually change my pic alot, but I’ve kept the pic I have now the longest of any. But why would I change it now. Olaf rules.

      • CJ Blaze

        I’ve had The Shield thing since last year sometime. And I decided to change it since they aren’t really a group haha. I love Olaf!

        • David Jr.

          Was at a party yesterday with Anna and Elsa. Who’s jealous of me?

          • CJ Blaze

            Did they sing? haha

          • David Jr.

            Yes, Let It Go.

          • CJ Blaze

            I’m jealous.

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m not paying attention to this match since I would rather watch it Sunday if it happens. I don’t understand TNA’s booking and logic at all.

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

      If MVP does work injured, it will show just how daft he is, and how little TNA cares about their performers.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Same here man… This is the second time we have had it since it was announced.

  • CJ Blaze

    Steel Cage… we’ll see if this actually happens.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Doubtful since MVP said he tore his MCL.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    “And remember… I’m just crazy enough.”

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

      We all know you are Jesse!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, 9 matches and two segments on Slammiversary… The show seems overbooked.

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

      Yeah, too many matches for a three hour show.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        At most, considering TNA might have to erect a cage and they are daft at that, that gives them 15 minutes a match.

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

          So either short matches, or we play ‘Who Gets Cut From This PPV?’

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep, and I’d bet other than the World Title match, Storm/Anderson might.
