Impact Wrestling Results – 6/27/2013
From Peoria, Illinois
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling starts out with a video package concentrating on the Bound for Glory Series. It shows the 6 matches that went on last week. Magnus is on top of the leader board. The video switches to Bully Ray and Hulk Hogan. Hulk announces that Ray and Brooke are done, but Ray doesn’t think so. Main Event Mafia is coming back as Sting and Kurt Angle are the current members. Who else will join?

The camera shows the arena and the crowd is on their feet. They are cheering. Music plays and here comes the Main Event Mafia music! Sting comes out and walks down the ramp. Sting gets in the ring and grabs a mic. He does his “Woooo!” He says he told Bully Ray that the Main Event Mafia will rise and grow. He promised Ray that what he experienced last week is just a touch of what is in store for him. He went to the cornerstone of the original MEM and that is Kurt Angle! Kurt comes out with the MEM music. He has a suit on and makes his way to the ring. Two guys with suits stand together in the ring. Sting points to Kurt as the crowd cheers. Sting hands the mic to Kurt. Kurt says they are the original MEM members from nearly 4 years ago. The whole concept of the group was that each member had to be a former World Champion. They fought for power and for the title. They did whatever they want and no one could stop them. Sadly, that seems to be Aces & 8s. They stepped it up to a whole new level. They are more violent than any other group. Also, because of them, Sting can’t fight for the World Title again. Also, because of them, Kurt is out of the BFG Series. Kurt turns to Sting and says they are family and they stick together. This is a new MEM. Kurt goes on to say that they are both Hall of Famers. They have two goals. The first is to destroy Aces and the next one is to make sure Ray is not the champion anymore. They are going to fight fire with fire and we will see another member revealed tonight! Their music hits and the crowd pops. Some bow down to the two stars. They get out of the ring and walk up the ramp.

Mike Tenay and Taz are shown on the camera. They talk about the whole Aces and Main Event Mafia story. They go through the line-up for tonight.

A video plays showcasing the Ultimate X Match at Slammiversary this year. It was Sabin vs. Suicide vs. Kenny King. It was a great battle with each having their own spots. It all came down to Chris Sabin as he won the title and became the new X-Division Champion. Chris is shown afterwards saying this is probably the biggest moment of his career.

Chris is shown walking backstage. Just then, Doc comes out from a tractor trailer. He grabs Sabin and brings him in the truck. Anderson and him pin him against the side. Bully Ray tells Chris to relax as he doesn’t want to get that knee hurt again. Ray wishes Chris for the best tonight and tells him to do the right thing. The right thing is to not cash in his title to fight Bully Ray for the TNA World Title. Chris can do his high flying stuff, but Ray is champion and a bad person. He doesn’t want to get involved with this bad person. Ken and Doc let him go. Chris is out of the trailer. Bully says he got the message.

Suicide freezes and turns to the stage. Hulk brings out TJ Perkins. Hulk says he is one of the hardest working guys in the back. He works hard to put food on the table for his family. He has always been Suicide. This person in the ring stole the suit. This gets Hulk furious. He wants to know who it is. Suicide leaves the ring and runs through the crowd.

No, he put the fear of Bully Ray in Chris Sabin. He tells the fake Suicide to put his tale between his legs and walk away. Hulk is tired of all of this and demands that he takes the mask off. Suicide gets on the mic. He says he was in the darkness. He was in pain. The torment was spread. In life, they have options. Do the easy things or the right things. He says Ray comes out and asks the people know who he is, but the question is, “Does he know who he is?” He is the man who created Option C. The person takes the mask off and it is Austin Aries! Aries says he beat Bully Ray before and he will do it again for the TNA World Title! Aries raises the title and mask. Ray is shocked and so his Hulk. The show fades.

Alex’s Assumptions:

I would start out and say that this week was a taped show, but really every week is a taped show. Sure, this show had the spoilers for a whole week while last week’s show had spoilers for just about an hour, but that hour really doesn’t hurt it. At any rate, next week will be a taped show too. I am not sure if I will be here with the live coverage on account of it being July 4th. We will have to wait and see on that part. Anyway, this show was quite hot. I certainly liked the flow of it way better than last week’s show. Last week was rushed like a car driving on a highway. This car as driving on a medium or high density road with the car hitting green lights the entire time. The show moved on as it should have. There was some nice matches like Magnus and Roode, but I simply enjoyed the Knockout Match. Mickie and Sky made it slow, but also told a story. It was back and forth where Mickie kept the title. It looks to be the end of this rivalry as Sky went back crying and heart-broken. Now begins the next feud with either Taryn Terrell or Gail Kim. The Gut Check Match was simply a mess. These two guys, Adam and Ryan, have great looks. Adam looks like a talent who can really get over quickly, while Ryan has a great character… a character that is unique to TNA, anyway. We see tons of characters come and go. He reminds me of a Johnny Rave from the 2006-2007 days of TNA (Maybe earlier), but this guy can actually play the guitar. Their match, however, was horrible. There wasn’t a story at all. It just each one doing their own thing. No flow. That’s why I feel having two Gut Check fighters fight at one time really hurts the whole situation. The Suicide ordeal was actually surprising. I didn’t think that would come up last week, but then I saw a video to hype the whole situation a couple days ago and it actually interested me! TNA adds another story to the show. Stories tell a wrestling show and they have plenty of stories. While some complain that Chris lost the opportunity and that TNA doesn’t trust him, I say that you can’t jump to conclusions. I learned to never do so. Aries was a great pick because that is his character. He is like that opportunity stuff. It looks like an Aries face turn, if I can say so, as anyone going against Bully is pretty much a face. Next week is a new show and the BFG Series continues as well as the build for Destination X! Like my Facebook page for my full wrestling thoughts.

    Steve Borden just works so well without the Sting paint. It lets him show so much more emotion in his face. And yes, he is not Sting without the paint for me.

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

      Sexy, sexy man!

      I know you’re all thinking it, but I said it!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        To quote Jericho, “He’s a sexy beast!”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We should have expected some bullying tactics here before the X Division Championship match by Bully Ray, but I honestly expected a little more physicality from them. Sabin would be the most credible threat to Bully’s title in that match.

    • Jon Harris

      sabin is no threat to bully ray at all and with who wins this match it shows tna has no faith or trust in sabin at all to be the world title picture

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sabin and Bully Ray have faced off numerous times over the years in their respective teams. The opponent you know is always the greatest threat.

        • Jon Harris

          when has bully ray ever faced sabin in a match and no one would believe for a minute sabin stood a chance against bully ray

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

            So, you’re saying that someone Sabin’s size cannot handle Bully? I dare you to say that to Austin Aries.

          • Jon Harris

            no i am saying tna not going to give him a chance because thats how they see and they know it won’t pop a rating at all

            So Sabin really could beat Bully, as he and his partner have proven in the past.

          • Jon Harris

            no those are tag matches and very different then single matches and i doubt sabin ever pin bully ray in those matches

          • Jesse Sherwood

            2 of them he got the pin on Bully.

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

            Sounds a lot like Vince McMahon thinking.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Team 3D vs MCMG. They faced off dozens of times over the years. And so by your size logic, I am to assume that the only people on the roster that could beat Bully Ray in your eyes are Samoa Joe, Hernandez, and Rob Terry.

          • Jon Harris

            no aries beat bully ray before and jeff hardy can beat bully ray

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

            Yet Sabin can’t? I agree with Alex, that’s McMahon thinking.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And to cite some examples:

            November 11, 2007 – TNA Genesis: The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelly) defeated Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon)..

            December 20, 2007 – TNA iMPACT: Jay Lethal & Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin defeated Team 3-D & Johnny Devine in a Double North Pole Match

            February 10, 2008 – TNA Against All Odds: Jay Lethal & Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley defeated Team 3-D & Johnny Devine..

            October 29, 2009 – TNA iMPACT: The Motor City Machine Guns defeated Team 3-D (Brothers Ray & Devon) in a tag match

            May 16, 2010 – TNA Sacrifice: The Motor City Machine Guns beat Beer Money and Team 3-D in a 3-WAY #1 Contenders match..

            November 7, 2010 – TNA Turning Point: The Motor City Machine Guns defeated Team 3-D to retain the TNA World Tag Team titles (This is where Team 3D broke up)

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Big O! Maybe Ryder can get released so he can join him!

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

      Who?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        He is a close friend of Zack Ryder and appeared in Z True Long Island Story.

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

          Ah, I didn’t watch it. I am not a Ryder fan, and never got in on that whole thing. I will say that O is an impressive looking guy!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He is a beast! Dude rivals Batista at his peak in size.

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

            I’m impressed with his look. Why is he in TNA and no the E?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Because he is very green. He has about 2 years experience.

  • BlazeKing

    Hey yo, it’s the Big O!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Stay outta his O Zone!

      • BlazeKing

        O hell nO!!!

        *flexes*

        AAAAAAAGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

  • The Ignored Monster

    I guessed that Suicide would win and it’s an Aces Eights member.

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

    TJ has ALWAYS been Suicide. Sorry Hogan!

  • BlazeKing

    Was that Kaz again?!

  • The Ignored Monster

    Skidmarks lol

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And it looks like he hasn’t improved much!

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

        What a mess!

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

          Why did they even bother?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I don’t know, but he was a septic train wreck!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else notice the camera angle changes to hide how bad Skidmarks is?

    • The Ignored Monster

      That was bad, he missed a crossbody and hit the guys legs.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        As well as got nowhere close to Big O on a dropkick.

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

          Not saying O was very good himself, but better than that Jericho wanna-be!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He was like a sub-par Johnny Rave.

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

            *Snort*

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

    Who did you guys like better, Adam or Ryan?

    • The Ignored Monster

      The ref was good.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Big O by a landslide. Skidmarks still sucks.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bully Ray is freaking out over this! Maybe he feels a bit threatened by the MEM!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sorry, but after seeing both of them in person Christy Hemme is nowhere near as attractive as SoCal Val!

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

      Sorry, but I think Hemme had the best Playboy issue of all the Divas.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes, but that was years ago. She looks anorexic now.

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

          I will say that she’s lost her bounce, and that was something I loved about her when she first appeared in the E.

          • BlazeKing

            Well, at least she didn’t lose her smile ;-)

    • Smart Mark

      I’ll have to disagree with you Jesse. Christy Hemme towers over SoCal Val

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Maybe it’s because I like a woman to have a little something to them. Size 0 = 0 attractiveness to me.

        • Smart Mark

          That i will agree with you on. But Christy’s facial features are alot better than SoCal Val in my opinion.

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

            Everyone has their own taste.

          • Smart Mark

            Thats something we can all agree on.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hemme does have some softer features, I’ll agree.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Shut up and fight Mickie!

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

      Never mind shutting up, she needs to tuck all those body parts back into her clothing.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Amen Kendra!

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

          That was just nasty!

      • Smart Mark

        Weren’t you the one that said the Kaitlyn/AJ feud was bad because it was reminiscent of Piggy James :P lol

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

          I’m not talking about fat at all. It has nothing to do with her figure, at all.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You haven’t seen her how we have!

          • Smart Mark

            Haha

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

    The Knockouts are really stepping it up! Actually enjoyed that match!

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

      I will say that they did look good working the ring, but I was distracted by Mickie’s wardrobe.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Or lack there of. *shudders*

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

          This wasn’t scheduled to be a Chains Match!

    • Jon Harris

      no the match was kinda boring and short but ok

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

        6:35 is a long match for any women in the ring these days. Better than a lot of mens matches lately!

        • Jon Harris

          true but weh ave sene that match so much now and time for a new feud for mickie i hope

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

            The match between Magnus and Roode was all of 4 seconds longer.

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

            Yes, we’ve seen it, and a new feud would be good, but you were talking about time, not a change for Mickie, and that’s what I responded to.

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

          I love how you keep track of the times for each match, Kendra!

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

            I started on a whim, but I think it shows so much more than just a description. It’s put a lot of matches in perspective for me. Thinking about starting it for PPVs as well.

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

            Yeah, that would be great!

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

      I will give you that. She’s proof that women in their 40′s can be dang sexy!

      • Smart Mark

        Amen

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Please, get Robbie off the mic!

    • Jon Harris

      i know he sucks on the mic and storm is not good on the mic either

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

        Storm is fantastic on mic. I don’t know where you’re coming from on this one. What’s your problem with Storm? Or is it just your continuing loathing of all things TNA?

        • Jon Harris

          its his voice and it does not come off good on the mic and i don;t think he is good on the mic thats all

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

            As I said before, I’d like to know why you think this. I am asking.

          • Jon Harris

            storm just seems to allways joking around and be pg on the mic and never serious on the mic and i just don;t like the way he sounds thats all

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

            He’s not as PG-13 as SCSA, but I think he does a solid job with the role, and has fun with it.

        • The Ignored Monster

          Storm has one of the best voices in all of wrestling.

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

            I am trying to keep this clean as I work here, and I need to be professional, but Storm’s voice does amazing things to me.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            His drawl is fantastic. Reminds me of a lot of guys around here.

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

            It’s the sexy growl in his voice with the drawl that makes it so enjoyable.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        What happened to the positive Jon Harris we had a couple of weeks back? Why are you back to ragging on TNA?

        • Jon Harris

          u are ragging on tna to and the x-divsision match was good and roode and magnus match was ok but 2 short for me

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

            We’re loving on TNA tonight. No clue where you’re getting any negativity from any of us writers tonight.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, I speak positive about the product as well. I will point out issues as I see them, as is my job.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Fantastic match by Joe and Anderson here tonight! This is why I love the BFG Series! PPV level matches every week!

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

      I thought it was terrible! Joe’s facial expressions were so horribly overplayed, and Anderson couldn’t carry his weight in a wheelbarrow last week!

    • Jon Harris

      ho ware they ppv level match there not at all but it was ok until the end when all hell broke lose it took away from the match

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sorry, can you check your spelling and write that comment more legibly? I can’t respond to you properly if I can’t understand what you said.

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

        Huh?

      • Smart Mark

        * How were they PPV level matches? They were not at all, but it was okay until the end where all hell broke loose. It took away from the match.

  • BlazeKing

    I think Joe’s gonna like the way he looks.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I guarantee it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bully put over Sabin very well here! He made Sabin seem like a credible threat.

  • BlazeKing

    Holy crap, it’s Austin Aries!!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That was a HUGE surprise!

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

        Nice British accent!

      • BlazeKing

        I noticed the speech pattern immediately. I knew it was him before he pulled the mask off!

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

          I couldn’t figure it out from the build. That was what we were trying to figure it out from.

          • BlazeKing

            I thought it was Kaz from the build at first, haha.

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

            I was thinking Daniels, but he looked wrong. Too narrow for Kaz and Chavo. Too tall for Spud.

          • BlazeKing

            Now i’m wondering if they just killed Suicide again…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I imagine so. Now that TJ Perkins has been outed, it can let him wrestle as himself in the X Division.

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

            I’d hope, but they might put him back under the hood. I hope not as I loath the Suicide character, passionately. But this is TNA, and they do some daft things some days.

          • Smart Mark

            Out of all the picks though i would have never assumed in would Aries, and i believe that anyone that said “i knew it was Austin Aries” is a flat out liar. The wrestling shows are doing great in fooling us these last couple of weeks.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yeah, but it still was a perfect way to change things up in TNA!

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

            I’m very impressed.

      • Jon Harris

        it was a let down to me and why put aries in bfg series then

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

          Because he’s Aries and he deserves it! Sure, it looks like we won’t beat Bully, but this is pro wrestling, stranger things have happened!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He could end up winning and reveal that it was a MEM plan all along!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Because now he has 2 chances to take out Bully Ray.

          • Jon Harris

            no because if aries wins the title he will be drop from the bfg series so since he got his title show he should not be in the bfg series anymore

          • Jesse Sherwood

            If Aries wins the title, he could stay in the series just to play the spoiler. If he wins it, no one gets the shot and it proves that he is the best in the company, as he not only defended his title at BFG but won the series.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    I must say well played TNA Creative. I hope this sets up Aries vs AJ Styles at BFG But I am not holding my hopes up too much for it. I will just sit back and enjoy the wrestling

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

      Don’t forget, we can still see Aries vs. AJ via the BFG Series match.

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

        Not enough for me, but how will they play heel vs heel? Meaning Bully vs Aries, or Aries vs AJ?

        Then again, Aries is one of those heels that the fans love because his ring work (and mic work) is just that awe inspiring.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Aries is the Punk of TNA. Turn him all you want, there will be fans for him.

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

            Very, very true.

          • Smart Mark

            Punk/Bryan

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

          I see him, Aries, turning face.

  • The Ignored Monster

    Aires may be a small person but he’s got a helluva deep voice.

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

      Another one of those great voices in TNA!

  • jdl

    Another turn for Aries? That’s what, turn number three in less than a year? Starting to look like he’s going for Anderson’s record.

  • Smart Mark

    I think that when Aries and AJ do square off in the BFG series, someone should come out before they even lock up to ruin it. Save that headline for a much bigger situation.

  • Mohan Ramnath

    No doubt aries vs aj with be a wrestlemania type match but aj will have to bring back some of his high flying moves and mix it with his new ground attack
