Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling’s Destination X show starts out showing X-Division starts from the past, present and the future. They are line-up as one of them will be the new X-Division Champion. The camera shows Chris Sabin backstage as he is getting ready for his match tonight. A video starts showing Chris as a little child. He said people thought he would never be a professional wrestler. He overcame the odds. He is now going for the TNA World Champion after turning in the X-Division Title. He fights Bully Ray. Main Event Mafia is behind him, so he can do it? Chris says he only needs one shot to beat Bully.

The camera shows the arena where Destination X is live. The crowd is on their feet. They are cheering and clapping. They are ready for this show. Aces & 8s music hits. Bully Ray comes through the entrance stage. He walks down the ramp and gets in the ring with the TNA World Title. We hear that Taz is not commentating tonight as it is Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash. Bully grabs a mic and wants his music shut off. He says the crowd wants him really badly. (The crowd boos.) Ray says he heard all week about this one little boy. They all want to talk about Chris Sabin. The crowd chants Sabin’s name. Ray says that he has no chance to win the title. He says the crowd sounds like there is a parade going on for him, but they should be planning a funeral for him. Ray states that he is the most hated man in wrestling. The tables are set for him to beat Sabin and for his members to destroy Main Event Mafia. It’s going to be a perfect night. Now, he wants to talk to Brooke Hogan, his wife. Come on out here!

Music hits and here comes Brooke Hogan. She gets on the stage. She calls him Mark and asks him what else he wants from her. She says he tricked everyone on top, Hogan, Sting, Dixie, and herself, but what else does he want? Brooke wants to move on and so should he. She walks down the ramp and is right on the ring apron. Ray gets all sympathetic and then yells that she will move on when he tells her to move on. Just then, Hulk Hogan’s music hits. Hogan comes out with a mic and tells him to knock it all off. Enough is enough. The crowd is going crazy! Hogan meets Brooke on the apron. Hulk says Ray took everything from his family and he is going to lose the title. Enough is enough. Hulk grabs Brooke and they walk up the ramp. Ray states that he will never lose the title and will not get a divorce from Brooke. Hulk turns around and marches down the ramp. Brooke tries to stop him. Kurt Angle appears on the titan tron and starts to laugh. He says the Aces & 8s will have to deal with the Main Event Mafia. The group is shown as they appear behind and to the side of Kurt. Ray deals with Chris Sabin while the others deal with the MEM. It’s a fair fight.

Alex’s Assumptions

I have been waiting for this show, Destination X, for weeks. First I thought we would be seeing Austin Aries vs. Bully Ray. It changed to Chris Sabin vs. Bully Ray. I honestly didn’t mind and was very curious to see how it would turn out. Let me start off by saying that I thought it was going to be quite predictable… Bully Ray retains the title. That is the opposite of what happened! I love unpredictable stuff but it has to be logical. I don’t know where TNA will be going with this, but I am eager and I don’t see anything wrong with it. I truly thought Ray would carry it till Bound for Glory. The story now is… Aces & 8s are surely falling apart. That’s where they are at right now. As far as the rest of the show… great matches! I love watching X-Division matches, but typing them is quite different. They are so fast paced that it’s almost impossible to write move by move. The stars of the X-Division have such great talent. I can’t deny that. It’s nice to have a show dedicated to that type of style. We also saw stories progress like the Mickie James and Gail Kim story as well as the MEM vs. Aces and Bully vs. Brooke. Brooke and Ray seems to hit a dead end, but we do know Ray will never let Brooke go! Simply put, this was a great show that lies between Slammiversary and Bound for Glory. Now we are full speed ahead for BFG and it’s going to be a very exciting ride!

    Welcome to this week’s Impact Watch Party! I am your co-host Jesse Sherwood and this week’s show is a special one, as it is Destination X! Chris Sabin will challenge Bully Ray for the TNA World Title, and we will see many of the past and present stars of the X Division in action! What and who are you hoping to see tonight?

  • dunlap84

    Be sure to tune in this week to see your favorite TNA superstar… Because they might not be employed next week.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, that happened in two cases this past week for me. DOC and Tara’s releases were surprising. But considering this week is a special edition, TNA is bringing in plenty of former stars to entertain us. Hopefully, they’ll focus solely on the X Division and not try to shove too many of the other storylines into it.

      • dunlap84

        Yea I was really excited to see Petey Williams come back to TNA, I just hope he’s able to hang around awhile.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Considering Petey isn’t even on the Roster page, I wouldn’t get my hopes up. I am betting he was working per shot with them. Sonjay Dutt as well.

          • dunlap84

            Oh I hadn’t even looked, but I would say your right, the part timers will probably end up being cut out as well, or won’t be featured quite as much in the future.

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

            He was with the rest of the boys lined up! Good sign!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            For the short term, it is. But it should say something that the only X Division stars on the roster page are Ion, King, Sabin, and Manik.

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

            And Ion is out with a broken gut.

      • Jon Harris

        i have seen the spoilers but i won;t post any spoilers on here i promise

        • Jesse Sherwood

      Welcome back, Kendra, after being absent last week! Looking forward to tonight!

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

        So am I! I feel like I’ve missed so much!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Looks like JB may be on commentary tonight! Honestly, I hope it is a sign that Taz is going to be more of a mouthpiece for A’s and 8′s.

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

      He’s so stale and annoying on announce these days, so a night without Taz would be nice!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    On TWITTAH!

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

      I was just about to post that! Sounds like he’s a Maine-uh!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I miss his rants about being on Twittah! And about his Calves!

  • Ibra

    I’m saying it now Chris Sabin will be the new tna world heavyweight champion tonight because the video package shown at the beginning of the show

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That’s a huge rock on Brooke’s hand!

  • dunlap84

    Glad to see Homicide back on tv( minus the once a year appearance on ROH) I always felt he was more talented than Hernandez, I miss seeing them as a team.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Agreed dunlap, he always had a better ring presence than Hernandez.

  • BrooksOglesby

    I’m so excited to hear that Trent Barreta’s at Impact! I always thought he had a ton of potential as an underdog in WWE. He’s also got a sense of humor that clicks with mine (same with Derrick Bateman, also released), so I’m biased, but I’m glad to hear that the guy’s still got a chance to be on TV.

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

      I just got through ripping someone a new one for not posting spoilers here, and you stab me in the heart!

      • BrooksOglesby

        #HEEL

        (sorry!!!)

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

          Only because it’s you will I let it slide, this time.

          Sorry, you have too much of a baby face to play a heel. Though I think it goes back to being old enough to be your mother.

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

      I agree, Brooks! I loved them in the WWE as a tag team. I always thought they had potential!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    As a general note, No Spoilers please.

    • BrooksOglesby

      My bad! I’m away from the TV and I just saw some people talking about a certain spoiler on the Twitta.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And I apologize as I saw the spoiler and didn’t see that it was you Brooks.

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

      Not really a spoiler because TNA posted a picture of him hours ago.

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

        But I didn’t know that. I avoid everything that could spoil the show, including their website, before the show.

  • dunlap84

    You know I enjoyed watching Crimson, Joey Ryan, D-Lo, etc. but I so loveeeee to see Brooke, she is well worth whatever she is making. So hot!

  • Ibra

    Good night everyone hopefully I’m welcome to the chat

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

      Welcome, Ibra!

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

      Always welcome to chat! The more the merrier!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Of course lbra! Great to have you!

  • Ibra

    Will bully ray lose everything tonight?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Honestly, I am not sure. If it was anyone other than Sabin, I’d say no. But Sabin has rockets strapped to him right now.

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

        And with the BFG Series… Not sure Sabin could stand up to the winner. Though Sabs could beat Bully, then Bully could win it back before then…

  • Ibra

    Nice promo by the way from ray and the hogans Felt really intense and real.

  • Ibra

    I got Aries to win over roode . Aries is hands down the best wrestler in the business right now to me.

  • Jon Harris

    i know who wins the world title match tonight but i won’t tell anyone

    • Gesus Oliver

      me too, the person who gets the pin.

      • Jon Harris

        i mean i know the person who wins the world title match and i know wins every single match tonight

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

          There are some people who truly enjoy not knowing. Those of us who shake our holiday gifts and guess, but love the excitement of waiting and not knowing!

            Yay!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Jon, taunting it is still not a proper thing to do. That is almost as bad as posting them.

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

            Jesse, handled, all set.

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

        Yes, yes, the spoilers are out there. You don’t need to taunt those of us who are watching and enjoying each and every move of the match.

        • Jon Harris

          i won’t say a word

        • Jon Harris

          your own website spoiled the main event for the world title tonight and wrestlingnewsworld.com

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

            And Richard posts ‘spoiler’ on it, so people can avoid reading it. I know I’m not the only one who likes to watch a show without knowing the results. I don’t want to have to avoid this as well, because I like to talk smack with everyone, but spoilers should be kept where they can be avoided if you want to.

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

      You should not read the spoilers sometimes. You will really see a difference in how the show is.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Chavo is looking to move to the X Division! Honestly, I don’t know why they haven’t been using him there in the first place.

    • Jon Harris

      he is for tonight anyway

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Chavo said and I quote: “You could win the BFG Series and I win the X Division title and we face off for the World title at Destination X next year.” I’d assume that he will be working more with the X Division even if he doesn’t win tonight.

        • Jon Harris

          i don’t know i guess we will have to wait and see

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

            He straight out said he was working the X Division, so what’s the problem?

          • Jon Harris

            yes he said for storyline purposes for tonight show because of the theme of the show

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

            He said weeks ago he was.

  • dunlap84

    Wow Bobby Roode probably doesn’t realize it but he probably just cost someone like Mike Knox or Jay Bradley their job computer equipment is expensive to replace. lol

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

      That was a really cheap flat screen. Even I could afford that on my disability check without an issue.

      • dunlap84

        Yea I was just making light of TNA’s money problems.

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

          Blonde moment! LOL

  • Ibra

    Good match by Aries and roode . As expected if Sabin wins the belt tonight I could see Aries vs Sabin at BFG

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So they explain DOC’s release by saying he snapped after Knux voted for Anderson and turned in his cut. Not the most creative, but definitely a good way to do it.

    • Jon Harris

      thats taking the cheap way out by doing it that way

      • Jesse Sherwood

        So how would you do it, considering he can’t be on TV without the contract?

        • Jon Harris

          have the aces and eights beat him up tonight then he is written off of tv

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He isn’t under contract, so he can’t be on TV tonight Jon. That solution doesn’t work.

          • Jon Harris

            tna could have work something out so he could be there tonight and dutt has not contract with tna he is on tv

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He’s working a per shot deal. But if you were told you weren’t having your contract renewed, would you work a date beyond it? I wouldn’t!

          • Jon Harris

            probally not

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

            Exactly our point. He was pissed, so it makes total sense!

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

        At least they did something. Many times companies would just never mention him again. Okay, specifically one other company would do that. I like that they were willing to admit to something and write it in.

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

      As long as it makes sense it should be fine.

      • Jon Harris

        it didn’t make sense at all because d.o.c. was not that mad last week at all and he did not flip out or anything

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

          I would advice you to re-watch the segment.

          • Jon Harris

            why would doc just leave the group for no reason so what he not the vp he didn;t seem that mad about it at all

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

            He’s been mad at the group for weeks! Haven’t you been watching the shows? That was the last straw!

          • Jon Harris

            he has been helping the group to and show no signs of turning on them or leaving the group

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

            I’ve said for weeks that it was obvious, and only a matter of time. I cannot think I’m the only one who saw that!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Sonjay vs. Homicide vs. Petey! Old school X Division at it’s best!

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

      Disagree! I would have loved to see Petey and Sonjay without Homicide to get in the middle of it all.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, duh! 1 on 1 would have been ideal, but TNA won’t do that again anytime soon.

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

          And they’re really hurting the X Division because of it!

    • Jon Harris

      that match was to short and kind boring

  • dunlap84

    Wow it’s like watching the old TNA that I use to love if only theybring back “The Alpha Male” Monty Brown,’and the six sided ring

    • dunlap84

      They’d

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can do without Monty Brown, but the ring would be nice!

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

        I agree about Monty – at least full time. But the ring, it needs to return!

        • BlazeKing

          It never left….

          At least if you happen to still have your copy of TNA Impact: The Video Game, that is.

          =P

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I do, and won’t sell it for that one fact. Sure the game was bad, but it had a decent story to it.

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

            I actually have the 6 sides of steel ring. I had to pick it up when I found it.

  • David

    The way they are doing this show so far, Chris Sabin almost has to win.

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

    Did they mention why Taz isn’t on commentary tonight? They mentioned him at the beginning but didn’t hear it.

    • Jon Harris

      no they did not say why

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

        Just Borash said he was told just before the show to get out there.

        • Jon Harris

          they didn;t say why he wasn;t out there and where he was

    • Jesse Sherwood

      All JB knew is he got called 10 minute prior to the show to be on Commentary. I’m betting he drove the truck.

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

        That would make sense.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So A’s has taken MEM out of the equation for the World title match! Looks like Sabin is in for an uphill battle. Maybe a former X Division monster can return…

  • BrooksOglesby

    Hey look, it’s Trent! Nobody got spoiled and everything is great.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And he even picked up a win! That’s a positive sign.

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

      You going to watch next week? He’s moving on to the Ultimate X match!

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

      LOL, he did look fantastic in that ring.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Trentylocks in TNA might be interesting… Oh who am I kidding? He’ll be misused worse than in WWE!

    • Jon Harris

      do we know if he has singed a tna deal or not

      • Jesse Sherwood

        As of right now, I don’t know so I assume he is like any other X Division talent: on a per shot deal.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, theses are Triple Treat matches! Why aren’t heels using weapons since they can’t be DQed?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Trentylocks is going to go to Ultimate X! That was a surprise!

  • dunlap84

    Between the 3 X Division matches it was kind of like the the legends (Sonjay, Petey, and Homicide) the current stars ( Mani. ure (Rubix, Trent and Rockstar Spud). You get one of each in the next match .

    • dunlap84

      Manik, King, chavo( kinda) don’t know what happened to what I originally typed.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Once the comments start stacking up, you need to refresh your browser to keep it from slightly freezing while you type. I have to do it frequently during these watch parties.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, they come back from commercial just to go back 15 seconds later? Why?

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

      It’s TNA, something they’ve been doing lately.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It’s stupid! They must ate for ad revenue!

  • Jon Harris

    why kidnap angle at all for him to return 20 or so mintues later

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because it is unexpected for Bully Ray. He thinks he has MEM locked down. Now Sabin has an equalizer and Bully is in the dark about it.

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

      All part of Aces’ plan.

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

      It’s a fantastic idea, and further shows how A&8′s is crumbling. If it was WWE, you’d love it!

      • Jon Harris

        no i would have not

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

          Oh, yeah, you don’t comment on WWE, just trash TNA at every turn.

          • Jon Harris

            no i do not trash tna all the time at all

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Jon, you only comment on TNA and most of the time it is negatively. That is trashing a company.

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

            What was the last really positive, or even slightly nice thing you have said here about TNA? I honestly didn’t realize how much I enjoyed sitting out in the woods and not reading all this negativity last week until I was back to reading it this week.

          • Jon Harris

            roode and aries had a good match but the x-division matches were 2 short and i am getting sick of the triple threat matches.mem promo was good

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

            You’re saying that now. I mean before this. Before you were called out for it.

          • Jon Harris

            i have in the past its just i don’t like everything tna does and i know tna is not prefect like some people thing it is

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

            I am the first person to call TNA for their crap, but also for the good they do.

            You get called out for your negativity each place you comment on it. If there’s so many people who have an issue with your negativity toward TNA, and the WNW writers (who I will admit you have not attacked here tonight), don’t you think that there might be a reason so many people are having an issue?

          • Jon Harris

            maybe its because i have watch wwe for so long or my passion for wrestling is so strong that i am holding tna to a high strand they can’t reach but i don’t know

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

            But you only comment on TNA, and it’s 99% negative. You haven’t said anything nice since March, and that was that you like Jeff Hardy. You always seem to act like you’re so attacked, maybe you should look in the mirror at the attacker. Both here and on Facebook at AA. You make more friends with honey, and you might be happier with your conversations about wrestling if you were more open to things beyond the WWE.

            I’m trying to make both here and AA more pleasant for all involved because it’s turning into too many people being unhappy dealing with you each time your name pops up. Just something to think about.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sabin has a lot of support from the back. Logically, you’d think if A’s interfered they’d all come out to help.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That’s funny! TNA just released a new RVD figure after he signed with WWE!

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

    The imprint of Bully’s hand on Sab’s chest. The broken blood vessels from the chops are sick!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Buly’s hand isn’t much better!

  • dunlap84

    I can’t see Sabin not winning this, and hopefully ending this Aces & 8′s crap for good.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      I think Aces And Eights and The Main Event Mafia Feud May Culminate at BFG

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sabin is TNA World Champion!

    • Jon Harris

      yup right or wrong decison

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Completely right decision! Sabin has been with TNA since close to the beginning. He has more than earned this!

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

          This match didn’t make him look strong, but he truly is. I love that he beat Bully at his own game.

          • Jon Harris

            but should bully ray have lost the title this soon

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yes, as it makes the MEM look successful in their mission. Now A’s can solely focus on MEM and withstanding the oncoming storm they will bring.

          • Jon Harris

            bully ray will get a rematch at somepoint

          • Jesse Sherwood

            True, and they may not succeed in keeping him from recapturing it, but it is a start. Bully has so many storylines going on that he doesn’t need the title to be burdening him on top of it.

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

            He will, but Sabs really shook things up, and took Bully’s hammer to do it. You know Bully is going to bitch about the use of the hammer, even though he swung it first. That will be fun!

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

            Maybe not, but I think people would have started complaining soon if he had carried much longer, especially if he carried through the entire BFG Series, and beat that winner. Was this the right move? Not sure, but it was right for Dest X, Option C, and Sabin right now.

          • Jon Harris

            i don’t see sabin holding the title to bfg ppv

          • Scottyo614

            It’s the story that further creates problems with Aces and 8s. Simple formula

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

      That makes a lot of sense. It shakes things up, and makes Option C still look viable. If Sabs had lost, Option C and Sabs would have looked lame.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Option C looks as viable as MITB. It has a chance to fail, but looks to be the ultimate opportunity to these smaller guys.

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

          It is, but one win and one loss would have left it looking like maybe only Aries could do it.

  • Scottyo614

    Good for Chris Sabin. Idk if he will have a long run, but much deserved being a “homegrown” guy

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Congrats to Sabin. It is just reward for all the Hard Work that he has put in at the company over the years, The ending was a bit overbooked but that does not take away from his moment. Congrats to Chris

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

    Sabin the newest member of MEM?

  • Jon Harris

    was it to soon to take world title off of bully ray

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

      That’s a highly debatable question. I gave my answers below.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Answered you below.

  • IBra

    I call it Sabin new tna champion

  • hh

    they should announce that from now on, the x div champ does NOT have a choice to cash in. it should be a garanteed thing now, because honestly, who would be stupid enough in reality to actually turn down a chance at the world title.
    now it should definately be sabin vs.aries at bfg, with aries going over of course.

    • vh

      also, rampage’s punches and knees looked really really bad in the brawl in the ring. i kno hes not trained and hes a mma fighter, so of course he may have troubles pulling his strikes and all that, but wow, they didnt look good at all.

  • Robert Olley

    Quick question is this instead of the destination ppv?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yes Robert. Instead of TNA having the PPV, they now are having TV specials at various points that would be where the PPV was.

      • LBP365

        The most impact would b these tv special on a sunday

  • LBP365

    Once again over thinking, now of course a rematch that Bully will win, but……..How can Bully b compared to the Greats of the WWE, TNA, HELL ROH, for that matter when he loses to chris sabin an A wrestler in ROH, a B wrestler in TNA a C wrestler in the WWE u want ratings Mat Morgan vs Crimson RATINGS making Madison Ryan GM (she was GREAT on the mic) ratings STING/ BULLY RAY 2 this time BULLY RAY the Challenger ratings Kurt Angle vs. James Storm American title RATINGS……..
