Impact Wrestling Results – 6/6/2013
From Atlanta, Georgia
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling starts off with a video package showcasing Slammiversary that just aired on Sunday. It shows Chris Sabin winning the X-Division Championship and then Gunner and James Storm winning the TNA Tag Team Titles. Taryn Terrell wins the Last Knockout Standing match. It switches to Dixie Carter as she announces Kurt Angle as the second inductee into the TNA Hall of Fame. Kurt beats AJ later that night. Main event time and it is a brutal won. Bully pulls the canvas from the ring and piledrives Sting on the wood. Sting kicks out and the match continues. Aces enter but Sting fights back. Ray gets a hammer and hits Sting to keep the TNA World Title.

The camera shows Atlanta, Georgia’s crowd and it is a great one. They are on their feet. They are cheering. Music hits and it is the Aces & 8s. Bully Ray comes out through the crowd and he has the TNA World Title over his shoulder. He looks around the arena as he slowly walks to the ring. Ray meets up with Taz and then starts insulting Mike Tenay. Ray gets in the ring and raises the title. Ray gets on the mic and says everyone is happy to see him. Well, they boo after that. Ray wants to introduce himself. He is the TNA World Champion. Ray comes from God’s country… Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. He is the guy who beat Sting at Slammiversary. He is Bully Ray. He says Slammiversary hasn’t been to kind to Sting. Last year at Slammiversary was the first time Sting got jumped by Aces. We know what happened this year. Ray single-handedly defeated Sting. Rumor has it that Sting might even retire! TNA has no more heros. Ray has destroyed everyone. No one can do a damn thing about it. There is really one thing left to do. Ray deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. So, Dixie Carter, get out of the mirror for 5 seconds and come down to his ring…. Ray couldn’t finish his sentence as Hulk Hogan’s music plays and he comes out on the stage. He plays his imaginary guitar with a mic in his hand. He does more taunts as the crowd cheers. Hulk wants the music cut off. This is Hulk-A-Mania country! Hulk comes down the ramp with a white glove on and says he has to give the due as Sting slipped on the banana peel while all of the Aces were around. Hulk gives the devil his due though. Hulk gets in the ring. He asks if Ray really said if he thinks there is no more competition. Hulk calls Ray his, “Son of a B!” Hulk states that the Bound for Glory Series participants will be picked next week in a special selection show. That is next week though. For tonight, here in Atlanta, GA… Here in Atlanta, GA… but Ray tells him to not say it again. Hulk does. Ray starts flipping out. Hulk says Ray will fight this guy tonight… Jeff Hardy! Jeff comes out on the stage as his music plays. Ray can’t believe it. Taz starts freaking out too. Ray gets out of the ring and tells Hulk that he can’t do that. The crowd is going crazy. Hulk can’t just do that. Hulk says, “As a general manager I can do whatever the hell I want!” Since this is Jeff’s first night back on Impact, he wants to make Jeff feel welcome. The title isn’t on the line tonight, but there will be a MONSTER ladder inside the ring. Ray says this isn’t fair. Hulk says there will be something hanging in the balance. It it something that Ray used on Jeff and on Sting on Sunday and it was used by every Aces’ member twice… and it is the hammer! Jeff pulls the hammer out from his pocket. Hulk says, “May the best man win.” Hulk’s music plays.

Alex’s Assumptions:

Hey everyone! I am grateful for all of the comments this week during the show right here below the live coverage. I love interacting with people through here, my Twitter, and my Facebook. I read all kinds of opinions and it’s great to see what people think. As for me… I really enjoyed this show! Bully Ray vs. Jeff wasn’t a surprise as I even talked to my one casual wrestling friend about Jeff wanting to get revenge. We both agreed that Jeff would go after Ray again. He did tonight. That match was quite awesome. I wasn’t expecting much since Ray went through a rough battle at the PPV, but both pulled out some good spots. Jeff was on his game. He even took a bump from top of the ladder. The Bound for Glory Series is starting and I can’t wait. I honestly love this time of year in TNA because the series is great. Everything worked well tonight with the stories ending at Slammiversary while other stories progressed. I wasn’t sure why it took so long to have Bully meet with Anderson in the back, but I also thought Ray would address the entire Aces’ faction because the other members lost at Slammiversary. Where was Doc, Wes, and Garett? Knux and Devon were on a mission as they have their own problems on their hands. The Aces are slowly starting to fall. I’m glad they put time in to talk about the Last Knockout Standing Match as it really should be talked about. It was a great match at the PPV. Fast forward to next week and it should be one great show. Great matches, AJ vs. Kurt, and Sting addresses his future. Speaking of Kurt, I liked his segment with Rampage Jackson. Honestly, the whole arena would have exploded if Jackson would have headbutted Kurt as Kurt did that when he made his debut on Impact. Remember he did that to Joe? Would have been an excellent set-up. Rampage has a lot of training, but certainly would have created a lot of talk! Now when will we see him next? Overall, the show was hot. The crowd was great. The ending delivered with suspense and progression. Now we have to wait till next week. Like my Facebook page here.

    Welcome to this week’s TNA Watch Party! I am your co-host Jesse Sherwood and we have a huge show in store for you tonight!

    First, Sting lost the No Holds Barred match despite a valiant effort, as A’s and 8′s stormed the ring to help Bully Ray seal the win. Who will rise up against the big Bully and challenge for the TNA World Title?

    Second, Chris Sabin won the X Division Title in Ultimate X! He will be in action with the new Tag Team Champions, James Storm and Gunner, against Dirty Heels and Kenny King! Will the losers have their vengeance or the New champs exert their dominance?

    Third, Abyss returned to win the TV Title from Devon! Will we see the new champ defend his belt, or even get an explanation on his absence?

    Fourth, Quentin “Rampage” Jackson was revealed as the BIG TNA signing, and will be on the show! What can we expect from TNA’s new star?

    Fifth, Bully Ray was the only member of the club to win his match! Will there be consequences for the rest of the members?

    All of this and more is in store tonight! What are your thoughts?

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

    Jesse, you hurt me!

    What about what Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell did?

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

      That’s right! How can that be left out?! Tisk, tisk Jesse!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I missed the match, but considering how brutal it was, I expect them to be off TV a couple of weeks to heal!

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

          I am blown away by the work Taryn did. I expect it from Kim, but Taryn impressed more than I thought possible.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m sorry! I can’t help that I forgot!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And before the show starts we see Hardy thanking Hulk for the chance to “End this Guy”!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bully says what every fan wanted him to say to Tenay! “Shut up you old son of a you-know-what!”

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And this just shows that Kurt, while deserving, got the HoF nod for the progression of a damn storyline.

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

      How so? It could have been anyone and Ray would have called them out.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m calling it now that it will be Bully vs. Angle: Title vs. HoF spot.

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

          You think?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yeah, after the promo by bully, I see it as a foregone conclusion. Angle, of course, goes over.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So we get to see the BFG series begin next week!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hardy vs. Bully Ray… How much more can they pull out of their hats?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And it is Russo Special! A hammer hanging over the ring in a ladder match!

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

        Proves my point on how much impact Russo still has on the business.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          But still not in a good way, mostly.

        • Jon Harris

          do u think it will lead to a world title match with the 2 of them

          • Zach Bonner

            Eh, it’s probably just filler to have Bully and Jeff on TV while building towards a new contender. They’ve done Jeff vs. Bully, and he’s probably going to get some redemption tonight and move on to something else. Maybe a feud with AJ, which would be cool.

  • Hayden Tyler

    Hogan is wearing a surgical glove and i know why bc he a rafiator explode on his hand i mean OUCH!!!

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

      Took me a moment to realize why he was wearing it myself.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Those had to be the nastiest pics I have ever seen on twitter

  • Jesse Sherwood

    List so far: Jay Bradley, Chavo, and Hernandez.

    • Jon Harris

      no one of them have to win this match to get into the bfg series

      • Jesse Sherwood

        The way they started the promo indicated otherwise Jon.
        Chavo: Your going to need your strength because we were both just added to the Bound For Glory Series.

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

          And Hernandez goes to the BFG Series. Exactly as was stated earlier Jon.

        • Jon Harris

          no only hernandez was add and thats it

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Please, reread what I said above. Thank you.

          • Jon Harris

            your wrong chavo is not in the bfg series

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Listen, I am going to type this out in PLAIN ENGLISH so you might understand it. Chavo messed up his promo by saying they were both in the series at the start. That is when I posted the first comment. I have explained this to you once already. I have even edited it after the fact to show that there was a promo error. Tell me if that wasn’t broke down enough for you.

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

    TNA does some good and bad things, but I do give them lots of credit for the Bound for Glory Series. I look forward to this every year!

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

      I loath tourneys, but they do a fantastic job with the BFG Tournament! I’m looking forward to it as well.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is one of their best ideas. I want more X-scape matches!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else feel like they are watching LA Law when Joseph’s music hits?

  • Hayden Tyler

    I bet they are going to have a fake Abyss tonight or Joseph is going to disapear and make a change

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

      I love how Joseph has been booked. And thrilled that Aby is back!

      • Hayden Tyler

        im not a fan of Joseph

  • Matthew Torres

    Hey Alex you think chavo going to turn heel

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

      I don’t think they will turn him heel. While Hernandez is going to be in the BFG series, I don’t see him teaming with Chavo for awhile. The tag team division may be low once again, but TNA also has a limited amount of faces.

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

        And I’m so disappointed in how they have booked Chavo since he joined TNA. So sad.

        • Jon Harris

          very true

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

          Being a multi-time Tag Champion is bad booking?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            It is when he looks like he can’t do anything else.

          • Jon Harris

            yes all he has done since coming to tna is being in the tag team division and thats it so he has not done much at all and has not been in the x-division at all yet

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

            Not even X Division, it’s that he’s been booked to look weak. Of the four teams in the division, he and Hernandez have looked the weakest, by far.

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

            I would take the tag team titles if I was given the opportunity. Can’t be greedy in this business. Take what you get and then try to excel. I guess you wouldn’t get far in this business.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Joseph was trying to blade! Where did he learn that?

    • Hayden Tyler

      i dont know

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Lol, it was a joke directed at the fact that he shouldn’t know.

        • Hayden Tyler

          yea i known

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Currently Qualified for BFG Series: Jay Bradley, Hernandez, Samoa Joe

  • Jon Harris

    does everyone think aj will win the bfg series

    • Hayden Tyler

      I think he will

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I don’t even see him in the BFG Series, as he can’t contest for the World title until November. Why would they logically have him in the series to become the #1 contender?

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

        You sure it is till November?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Reading that it is amended to BFG.

          • Jon Harris

            octobber at bfg he can go for the title

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I JUST SAID THAT! Read before you post, please!

          • Jon Harris

            no u said november which your wrong

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

            Jon, look at the comments, he did amend himself. You don’t need to attack Jesse at every comment. It’s getting old.

          • Jon Harris

            i am not attacking anyone and when i comment its not fix yet

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

            Actually, you’ve been going after Jesse for a couple weeks now. I’m not just talking about right here. The nastiness needs to stop. I’m not arguing about it, just stating that you two need to knock it off.

          • Jon Harris

            no i am not at all and just posting my opinions and facts thats all

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

            Jon, I am not arguing about this, and you both need to stop squabbling like children. Opinions are one thing, being nasty to each other is something completely different.

          • Jon Harris

            i am not being nasty at all and i was just letting him know of his mistakes thats it

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

            He knows, and knew.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And even admitted as such.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            You replied to my post that said, and I quote, “Reading that it is amended to BFG.” Now you are blatantly trolling. Continue, and there will be repercussions.

      • Jon Harris

        he will be in the bfg series and because everyone says he is getting a title shot at bfg and there only one way to do that and thats to win the bfg series

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not on this site. Rumors are just that, rumors.

      • Jon Harris

        no u didn’t fix it and your post still says november

        • Jesse Sherwood

          In my reply to Alex, below. It’s called a retcon. Strike two.

  • Zach Bonner

    I haven’t watched in almost three years and have been keeping up only through results. I never knew how bad Robbie E is on the mic. Why does he feel the need to say “bro” after every sentence? Hell, he doesn’t even sound like he’s from NJ! Glad that jabroni jobbed to Joe.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Robbie E is the single weakest person I have ever seen both in ring and on the mic on a national wrestling program.

      • Zach Bonner

        If I had anything positive to say it would be that he sells well from what I can tell. I’ve seen worse, like Rob Terry or (as much as I hate to be cliche) The Great Khali. He needs to go back to OVW and learn a thing or twelve from Doug Williams.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          If you didn’t see today’s news, Doug Williams was released.

          • Zach Bonner

            Oh, wow, that’s a pretty big loss for them in my opinion.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Same here, as he was one of the better in ring guys in TNA.

      • Hayden Tyler

        dont sugar coat it he sucks plain and simple only thing he was good for was having a body guard to help him and since that is no more body guard i dont seem him last much longer in tna

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I have to be somewhat PC, but I would prefer if he was released along with Joey Ryan.

          • Hayden Tyler

            oh ok sorry if anyone dont like my comment earlier

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

            Jesse, Alex and I work here, so we have to be more PC. You don’t have to be as nice about it.

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

            I like the sleazy!

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

            He’s an abomination!

  • Hayden Tyler

    it looks like a tna lottery ticket

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It is. Georgia has published them.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, Angle has said he wants to try MMA…

  • Zach Bonner

    Jackson’s reaction to Angle’s music was hilarious. Quick and subtle, but out-of-nowhere and corny.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I miss Todd Kenely…

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

    Seeing Jackson and Kurt face to face in the ring reminded me of when Kurt first debuted on Impact as he was face to face with Samoa Joe. Imagine if Jackson would have headbutted Kurt?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I would have preferred a double leg take down, just to show Kurt he can take him down.

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

      I’m glad nothing happened. If Angle is still with TNA when/if Rampage is trained well enough to hit the ring, they have a kick butt clip to flash back to.

  • Zach Bonner

    Bobby Rooooooooooo!

  • Zach Bonner

    “Let’s keep it about wrestling.” Thank you Brooke. Never thought I’d say that.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I know. About time TNA took that approach!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Tayler Hendrix is back! About time we get to see more of her!

    • Jon Harris

      yea for one week probally

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Jon, after looking at your comment history, which anyone can do by clicking on your profile picture, one question pops in the my mind. Why do you watch TNA if you have absolutely nothing positive to say about the product? Over the last 7 months, you have posted 89 comments in Disqus, and anytime you do, it is bashing TNA, with the exception of about 5 which were lauding the praises of WrestleMania and this year’s Royal Rumble.

        • Jon Harris

          i do not bash tna at all just give my opinions abut tna and i like some stuff about tna and hate some stuff about tna

          • Jesse Sherwood

            First off, thank you for finally responding after a week. I do want to say that you, despite what you think, do post mostly negative. So, can we hear more of the positive comments from you on TNA?

          • Jon Harris

            i have allways had a hard time getting into tna storylines and i get bored by them alot and aces and eights has to end soon

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

      Taeler Hendrix! Remember, absurd spelling 101!

  • Zach Bonner

    I love Mickie’s gimmick. Just another reason to be a fan of her.

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

      You like Mickie’s gimmick? Why? Please explain. I find her plastic and completely unbelievable.

      • Zach Bonner

        That’s why I like it so much. She pulls off this two-faced character with obvious ulterior motives and will do anything to keep the title while avoiding a fight. I think she’s pulling it off quite well. If there’s one phrase that encapsulates her heel personas perfectly, it’s “Crazy is as crazy does.”, and she’s crazy and some change.

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

          I will give you the crazy, but I’m just not believing it. Maybe I’ve known too many chicks like that, I just don’t believe it.

          When I say plastic, I mean that she’s being too plastic with the character, not that the character is that plastic fake we all know too well.

          • Zach Bonner

            Oh, I gotcha. Well, I respectfully disagree but I guess that’s what’s great about these live discussions!

  • Hayden Tyler

    I wonder who gets paid more wwe cameramen or tna

    • Jesse Sherwood

      WWE, by far. TNA is scraping by.

      • Hayden Tyler

        i would love to get a career as one

  • Hayden Tyler

    Abyss is wearing track pants since when lol?

    • Zach Bonner

      Well, you know, it RUNS in the family.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I don’t know, JOG my memory here Zach.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      SHHHH… Joseph might hear you!

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

    Mickie James is really starting to develop a character. Actually glad for it because she was pretty stale when she was face.

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

      I don’t think she’s doing enough with the character. I don’t believe it yet. She’s not selling it enough for me.

  • Jon Harris

    who needs to win next week Angle or Styles

  • Jon Harris

    who needs to win more next week angle or styles

    • Jesse Sherwood

      AJ needs the win more and with the scenario I posed for Angle to be against Bully at BFG, it may very well go to him

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

        Dixie is going to do everything to get Angle to stay with TNA, so I have to go with Angle.

        • Jon Harris

          AJ can’t job out 2 straight big matches in a weeks time and they would make aj look bad

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Angle hasn’t jobbed. He won at Slammiversary

          • Jon Harris

            thanks i fix it

          • Jesse Sherwood

            You’re welcome!

          • Zach Bonner

            Didn’t Angle beat AJ at the PPV? A loss isn’t always demeaning as we’ve seen so many instances of a wrestler bouncing back from one and gaining more momentum than ever.

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

            I’m not saying it will be clean, just that she needs to keep Angle from returning to the WWE, so she’s going to be pandering to him at every turn.

          • Jon Harris

            what will another loss do to aj and his storyline that he is in

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

            I honestly don’t think another loss to the likes of Angle will do much. Plus, as I said, I don’t see it being a clean one. Honestly, at this point, I just don’t see them keeping Angle out of the BFG Series – unless they have something huge planned for him that comes out of the blue, and I really don’t see that happening.

          • Jon Harris

            i see angle vs jackson at bfg if they do that match

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He won’t be trained well enough by then.

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

            I have to agree with Jesse on this one (dang, I hate doing that), but there’s no way Rampage will be ready for a good year. The man needs to learn from scratch about how Pro wrestling works. Personally I don’t agree with them signing him. Too big of a liability.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Honestly, spiral his depression further down so he snaps, destroying Angle or joining A’s.

          • Jon Harris

            he allready turned the aces and eights and they hate aj so why would they let him join them

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He could convince them by taking out some people. Heel tactics 101.

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

            A&8′s are crumbling. They would take AJ in as they lose members.

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

          He still has a year and a half left on his contract. Wait till next year for a huge hefty push!

      • Jon Harris

        i hope AJ wins and where are they going with aj now

  • Zach Bonner

    I gotta say, this has been a pretty decent episode so far, and knowing what Jeff can do with a ladder, and what Bully can do with weapons in general, this match is going to be a fantastic closer. I think Jeff’s going to get redemption but not without Aces and 8′s protecting their leader’s credibility. Well, maybe not D-Von and Knox/Knux.

  • Hayden Tyler

    i thought hogan said a big ladder

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

      Well, when was the last time Hogan was on a ladder? Maybe that is a big ladder to him!

      • Hayden Tyler

        well true

    • Zach Bonner

      Maybe he’s used to ladders from Micro Championship Wrestling.

      • Hayden Tyler

        those are not ladders those are step ladders lol

  • Hayden Tyler

    bullys forehead looks funny

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

      Funny how?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That little patch of hair that is detached from his hairline, I think is what he meant

        • Hayden Tyler

          the little bit of blood that never ran down his face just stayed in his fold of his forehead

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

            That’s what happens when you blade too much through the years.

  • Zach Bonner

    Hardy connects with the Whisper in the Wind? People weren’t lying when they said he is on his game in TNA!

  • Hayden Tyler

    Abyss is going to get him nevermind hogan

  • Zach Bonner

    Well, that was fun. I guess I’ll chat with some of you on Monday night. Good night folks!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Zack, and feel free to! I’m always there on Mondays as well!

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

        Show off!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          (Runs hands through now non existent hair) BRING IT ON!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Is it the beginning of a turn for Brooke?

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

      One can only hope! I really thought it was going to happen at Slammiversary. I was wrong, but that was great!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hardy looked like he pulled something when he fell.

    • Hayden Tyler

      i think he did

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

    That was a great ending!

    • Hayden Tyler

      yea but it was just getting really good

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

        Yeah, I’m glad she didn’t turn at Slammiversary as I thought she would.

        • Jon Harris

          she going to turn at somepoint

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

            As I have been saying since well before Bully turned.

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

      Agree, Kendra! The booking is excellent! Keeps the story going. Progression and suspense!

      • Jon Harris

        there no suspense at all come on now and the story is going where its been going for while now teasing a hogan and bully ray match

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

          You probably think there is suspense between Ryback and Cena. Just saying.

          • Jon Harris

            not really no

      • Smart Mark

        TNA seems more like a sit-com then the a wrestling show lol but either way its going great.

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

          Maybe more of a soap-opera. In this day and age, the wrestling shows need storylines and angles to be part of the show. Otherwise, no one will stick around and watch the show. It’s all about creating a story from beginning to end.

    • Jon Harris

      ending was kinda dumb and there teasing a hogan and bully ray match with a brooke hogan heel turn

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

        You really have nothing good to say about TNA, so why do you bother coming here and trolling?

  • Hayden Tyler

    well night everyone it was a great show and and awesome chat session i think i might join for monday also

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Hayden, great to have you again! See you Monday!

  • Jon Harris

    who else see a bully ray and hogan match coming

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I truly hope not. After 7 spinal surgeries and the electrical stimulator having been put in, HH needs to never enter a ring again. I know that my doc would flip if I ask to enter a wrestling ring after I have my spinal surgery!

      • Jon Harris

        i know but there teasing it it right and have been for a long time now so u can see it coming

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Someone needs to put the and tell him NO.

          • Jon Harris

            yea and brooke would turn on her father i would think

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

          No, no way! They’re teasing Brook’s heel turn. Hogan will not be getting back in that ring, especially against Bully. I could be wrong, and I would be willing to admit it if I was, but I HIGHLY DOUBT Hogan will be getting back in that ring with anyone.

  • Robert Olley

    Said it once say it again tna will have brooke running a and 8 to rehash the mcmahon/helmsley era from years ago
