From the Manhattan Center in New York City
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling starts off with a graphic that says tonight’s show is going to be graphic in nature so viewer discretion is advised.

Tommy Dreamer, Bully Ray, and Devon are walking through the crowd as the fans are coming in. They are proud to go one more time tonight. The camera man asks about their match tonight and Ray talks about destroying Ethan Carter III and that he is going to drive Dixie Carter through a table tonight. Tommy Dreamer pulls out his phone and says there’s going to be wrestling history tonight.

A video package hyping “#ItHappens” plays as Dixie Carter will be going through a table tonight.

Music hits and here comes The Monster Abyss! Abyss walks down the ramp as the crowd cheers. Abyss looks through a trashcan filled with weapons. He gets in the ring. Music plays and here comes Bram! Magnus is beside him. Bram and Magnus talk. Magnus goes to the back while Bram walks down the ramp.

Bram exits the ring and grabs a lead turnbuckle connector and brings it in. Abyss grabs the cheese grater and grates it in the crouch of Bram. Abyss goes for a chokeslam but Bram gets out of it. He whips Bram into the corner but Bram floats over. Abyss grabs him and smashes his head into the steel chair in the corner. Abyss grabs Janice from under the ring. He brings it in and goes to hit Bram with it but Abyss misses and it is stuck in the turnbuckle. Bram runs to him but Abyss elbows the chair Bram is holding. Bram falls but Abyss’ elbow is bleeding. Abyss exits the ring and grabs a back of tacks.

Abyss empties the tacks. Bram stands and hits Abyss with the kendo stick over the head of Abyss and then on the shoulder. He goes again but Abyss tries for a chokeslam. Bram kicks Abyss to get away. Bram grabs Janice. Abyss turns and Bram goes to hit him but Abyss grabs him by the throat and chokeslams him… ON THE TACKS! Bram is screaming in pain!!! His back is bleeding! Abyss grabs Janice and waits. Just then, Magnus comes out from the back and grabs Janice from Abyss. He throws it to the outside.

They tuned in to see the division. Just then, Low Ki enters the shot. He says they have been through wars with pain and suffering. He says there is a prize now. Low Ki says Joe is in his way… Sanada is in his way. They aren’t going to stop him from being X-Division Champion.

Music hits and here comes Lashley! The TNA World Championship is over his shoulder. He has ladies on both sides of him holding his arm while Kenny King is behind him with two ladies beside him. MVP is using crutches as he is behind both of them. They get in the ring. MVP grabs a mic and introduces Kenny King (King of the Night) and the TNA World Champion Lashley! Also, the woman who represent New York City in the dresses! MVP says he was acting like a baby sister with wrestlers saying who they want to work with or fight. MVP says with the TNA World Championship, they have all of the power without any of the headaches. He says Lashley will be champion for years probably. EY was tough but not tough enough. Jeff Hardy is one of the greatest but he wasn’t great enough. Then, there was Austin Aries where people thought he would be successful but Option C wasn’t. Lashley has no one else to face. Music plays and here comes Bobby Roode! Roode comes out with a mic in hand.

He stands on the ramp. He says he was sitting in the back and hearing MVP talk and he says MVP was actually somewhat true. MVP says he is always right. Roode says the part about Lashley and how he is a destroyer. He faced people all over the world. He is one of the most dominate World Champions in company history. MVP says Roode should say something we don’t know. Roode tells MVP to shut up as he is tired of hearing him talk. He wants to talk to Lashley. Roode says he is a former World Champion and he held that belt longer than anyone. He knows what it takes to be World Champion. MVP knew that so that is why he sent Roode home for two months… he knew he was a threat. The plan wasn’t for Lashley to be champion but for MVP to be but he blew out his knee. Roode says MVP was going to use and manipulate Lashley to become World Champion. MVP tells him to shut up and stop stirring the pot. Roode says he has been dominating himself. He kicked MVP’s @ss and he kicked Kenny King’s @ss. And while Lashley beat former World Champions in the company, he hasn’t beat Roode. There’s only one thing for them two to do and that is for Lashley to put the belt on the line against Roode. Just then, MVP tells him to rock it and King attacks Roode from the side. Roode falls and MVP attacks him with his crutch. Music hits and here comes Eric Young and Austin Aries. They run down to the ring and save Roode while Lashley, King, and MVP leave the ring. MVP says they aren’t doing this tonight. They walk up the ramp.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TABLE! TABLE! TABLE!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we are opening with MONSTER’S BALL!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I can’t wait to see someone BLEED tonight!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Honestly, I’m loving that TNA is trying to cater to the old ECW faithful. It makes them have to carve out a good niche.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    CHEESE GRATER!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    We want BLOOD chant!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The barbwire is stuck in his back!!!

  • BlazeKing

    If you think the crowd is hot tonight, wait until Hardcore Justice. S*** gets real!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I can’t wait BlazeKing! I have been a bit pessimistic on TNA, but these shows have really turned it around!

      • BlazeKing

        It was so good, it distracted me from writing the results down. I have to go through my pictures to remember the winners. Even then, I forgot to write down the last two matches of the impact after HcJ… I can remember the winners when I see those matches though.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That, my friends, is ECW levels of ultraviolence!!!

    • BlazeKing

      There’s more of it to come!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Holy crap what a brutal match!

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m liking this between Joe and Low Ki

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Low Ki needs to highly consider doing voice acting after he retires in the ring. He could be a badass video game and anime villain!

    • BlazeKing

      He *was* the voice of Suicide on the TNA video game, lol.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes, but could you imagine him as the voice of a big final boss in an RPG such as Final Fantasy 15 or as the voice of a villain in Naruto? Dear Freya… I’d buy it in an instant!

        • BlazeKing

          He’s good enough to be a voiceover for a Kamen Rider villain!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Or any Power Rangers villain!

    • David Jr.

      A new villian in a Star Wars movie?

  • Mike McCarthy

    #MonstersBall is trending in the United States.

    • CJ Blaze

      I would get on Twitter but Wednesday night I seen spoilers I didn’t want to see -_-

  • Mike McCarthy

    I officially have 6 shows recording on Thursday nights, at least I’ve got a lot to watch this weekend.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    YES!!! It’s not my fault!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The two final ECW Champions on the same team… That is some nostalgia!

    • BlazeKing

      I saw Lashley on the street and got a picture of him holding an ECW belt for nostalgia purposes!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Lashley, despite the crap I have given him for becoming champ, is one of my favorite wrestlers I have met. He was very humble and nice.

        • BlazeKing

          MVP & Kenny are too. Me & my cuz had drinks with them at the bar. He (MVP) said it was some “extraordinary gentleman s**”, lol.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Awesome! MVP I would expect, as he always seemed like a good one in interviews. King, though, comes as a surprise considering how he treated ROH.

          • BlazeKing

            ROH had a *lot* of problems and Cornette only skimmed the surface of it! I definitely had no idea about the stuff.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I don’t know his reasoning behind it, but I lost a lot of respect when he pulled a Medusa with the Tag Title. He could have told ROH he was leaving and let them write him out properly.

          • BlazeKing

            From what I heard, he did give them notice he wanted to leave. They played games on whether they wanted to try to keep him or let him go (giving him and Rhett the belts was trying to keep him). It was the same type of stuff that pushed Cornette (And possibly The Wolves) away.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Did Lashley just become The Godfather?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TNA Evolution flanked by local “Massage Parlor” girls… BAKA!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’M OFF THE CHAIN!!!

  • Smark Twain

    Lashley looks like handsome Squidward

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Big eyes and all!

    • BlazeKing

      I laugh every time he makes his “mad face”.

  • David Jr.

    Bobby vs. Bobby?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope so! I am on the record that Roode will win the title at BFG!

      • David Jr.

        I love matches with guys with the same first names.

  • CJ Blaze

    EY and Aries oh my!

  • BlazeKing

    “Rock a Bye, Baby!!!”

  • CJ Blaze

    I smell a six man tag match

  • CJ Blaze

    I’m actually looking forward to Anderson, Gunner, and Shaw’s match.

  • Smark Twain

    I haven’t watched impact in like 2 months now, someone give me a quick run down on what Shaw has been up to? He’s easily my favorite character in TNA. Is he over Christie now or?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He was locked up in an asylum for a month, then Gunner started visiting him. He broke through to Shaw based on the fact that he has experience with trauma with his battle buddy going off the deep end. Gunner was able to get Shaw released into his care, and he is seemingly cured, but Anderson doesn’t buy it.

      • Smark Twain

        Interesting, I’m noticing he also didn’t put on his gloves. I’ll give TNA credit for character progression, at least in this case.

  • Andrew Davis

    Live results? This was taped 2 months ago, live results would be the LIVE taping in NYC that are on going at this very moment

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Live means as it is airing. That should be obvious.

      • Andrew Davis

        No live means live. Live would be if it was LIVE as it happened. This was taped

        • Jesse Sherwood

          If you want to argue semantics, then NO show will ever be live from TNA. But if this is how you are going to be, feel free to leave.

      • Andrew Davis

        Might make sense if there wasn;t a LIVE taping going on as we speak

  • CJ Blaze

    Any guess on Team 3D/Dreamer’s mystery partner?

    • Mike McCarthy

      It would’ve made more sense to do a 5-on-5 and add The Hardys into the mix.

      • David Jr.

        I think it suppose to be Hardyz. Throwing in Rockstar Spud?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Spoilers are NOT permitted in this thread.

  • CJ Blaze

    The BroMans gimmick may be as annoying as 3MB, but they do have potential in the ring. Well, Zema Ion has proven himself for sure.

  • Mike McCarthy

    King Mo has won 12 matches, 5 of which by KO. Mo must not be the best counter.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Boy, if that’s too many to count… Then he needs to go back to Kindergarten!

      • Smark Twain

        In his defense, he gets hit in the head a lot in his line of work. Or he ran out of fingers

        • Jesse Sherwood

          LOL! Still, I’ve had a few head injuries, including a serious one, and I can still count to 12!

          • David Jr.

            I know preschoolers who can count past 12. Heck watch Sesame Street, Ladybugs will teach you to count to 12.

  • Mike McCarthy

    KEN’S RIGHT

  • CJ Blaze

    Huh? I thought this match would go last..

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, place it in the middle and close with Bully getting Dixie! It will be the one time I agree with a segment closing the show!

      • BlazeKing

        Gotta give Dixie credit where it’s due. #ItHappens

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Only time I will give Dixie credit. This build has more than been worth some of the BS!

          • BlazeKing

            It was genius to build up the level of hate before the payoff.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LOL! Every time EC3 comes out, I have to check my phone to be sure my ex-wife isn’t calling!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Rhino! AND THAT WAS A SICK SHOT!!!

  • Smark Twain

    Wow Rhino looks the exact same as the last time I saw him well over a decade ago

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s blessed with few major injuries and good genetics.

      • David Jr.

        People from Detroit are naturally born with Good Genetics.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Devon looking GREAT!

  • BlazeKing

    Almost hit poor Earl “You screwed Bret” Hebner with that trash can. That coulda killed him!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I might have some bad news for my friend Jesse.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      What’s that? And is it spoilers?

      • Mike McCarthy

        No spoilers, I personally believe nothing until it’s been confirmed by RG. But there’s a lot of reports making rounds that TNA has already reached out to ADR.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          BAKA!!!

          • David Jr.

            He probably have a 90 day non-compete contract, so right in time for BFG?

            Probably make more money fighting in Mexico though.

          • Mike McCarthy

            No 90-day if it’s a release, only if the contract expires.

          • David Jr.

            I thought that was the other way around?

          • Mike McCarthy

            It’s possible that I’m wrong, but that’s the way I’ve always thought it was.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, it’s the opposite. 90 for a release, 0 for an expired one.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Really? Shows what I know >_<

        • CJ Blaze

          NOOO

          • David Jr.

            In your best Luke Skywalker whine?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      PM from Kendra.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Read it.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Thanks. She asked for me to tell you.

  • Smark Twain

    What is Big Zeke’s TNA name? Sounds like Taz is purposefully butchering it and I have no idea what it is

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Rick Lawn

      • David Jr.

        I thinks its Rycklon.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Talk about a contender for worst name…

          • David Jr.

            They should call him something like the Hippo. And have him become a Tag Team with Rhino.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Right up there with The Ding Dongs.

          • David Jr.

            A certain NXT trainer that goes by Bill Demott has arguably two terrible wrestling names.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And the Johnsons in the male anatomy costumes back when TNA started.

    • CJ Blaze

      They make it sound like Rick Lawn but TNA’s FB page has him as Ryklon.

      • David Jr.

        Isn’t Rycklon his real name?

        • BlazeKing

          Yes, it is.

        • CJ Blaze

          Yep

  • Jesse Sherwood

    HEAD!!!!

  • BlazeKing

    Damn, Al looks great!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Especially for 51!

      • BlazeKing

        Didn’t even realize he was that old!

  • CJ Blaze

    Nice!!

  • CJ Blaze

    EC3′s bloody face haha. Nice match!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHAT DOES EVERYBODY WANT???

    • BlazeKing

      TABLES!!!

      (oops, my bad)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        WHAT DOES EVERYBODY NEED???

        • BlazeKing

          HEAD!!!

          (and Dixie going through a table)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            WHAT DOES EVERYBODY LOVE???

          • BlazeKing

            This D….
            …ixie Carter going through a table segment!!!

            (and HEAD!!!)

          • Smark Twain

            My favorite comment I’ve possibly ever read

  • David Jr.

    People made a big deal about what Cowboy Bob’s son said to that girl on twitter, but I’m curious what Bully Ray’s twitter would have been like during his ECW days.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wow… That would have been a PR nightmare!!!

    • BlazeKing

      Oh man, they would have been f’n FILTHY!!! Dudleys back in those days incited people to fight them sooo bad.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They had people really try to kill them. Bully was nearly stabbed multiple times. So I could imagine how he could tick the whole world off!!!

        • David Jr.

          Back when a heel was a heel.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And Bully is one of the few people that lives their character still.

          • BlazeKing

            That’s a “heeeel” said with a whiskey face!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    EC3 looks good for a guy that was bloody just 5 minutes ago…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Fatal 4 Way for the KOs Title? AWESOME!

  • CJ Blaze

    X-Division Title match next!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This is going to be SICK! All three major types of wrestling in one ring! Brawler with Joe, Technical with Low Ki, and Flyer with Sanada!

      • CJ Blaze

        Marking out already! :D

        • David Jr.

          I read that first, I didn’t see the r.

          • CJ Blaze

            Oh. boy. O_o

      • Smark Twain

        Low Ki is honestly the reason I tuned in tonight for the first time in months.

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

    What does everything think of Impact tonight? For some reason I can’t get that into it…

    • CJ Blaze

      Eh. There’s some good and bad. Should be great from here to the end haha.

      • David Jr.

        You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have
        The facts of life, the facts of life.

    • Smark Twain

      It’s making me realize how good a show can be without comedy filler, constant advertising, and replays of things that happened weeks ago

      • BlazeKing

        You can get all of that for $9.99 on the WWE Network!!!

        • Smark Twain

          Brought to you by Twisted Tea – Hard Iced Tea

          • Mike McCarthy

            And a big thanks to that one band for our Official Theme Song!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And to Five Hour Energy!

          • Smark Twain

            And Sonic!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      What did you smoke Alex? The 8 Man Tag match and Monster’s Ball were great, the6 Man Tag featured some good character progression for Anderson, Shaw, and Gunner, and we still have more fun coming with the X Division title and Dixie!

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

        I liked the character progression for Shaw, Anderson, and Gunner! I just can’t get into the matches. I was getting lost in the 8 man Hardcore War match. It’s a shame!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, there was a lot going on there! Heck, I don’t envy you and Kendra writing results! I can’t keep up with that!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well… Thanks for the spoilers TNA!

    • Mike McCarthy

      Just thinking the same thing >_<

      • Jesse Sherwood

        So now we know it is between two men.

        • Mike McCarthy

          And neither are the one I wanted to win

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

      Wait, what happened?

      • Mike McCarthy

        They had a commercial for a match on next weeks show that partially spoiled the result of this match.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        They showed a video for next week and said Low Ki is in an X Division Scramble next week.

  • CJ Blaze

    That didn’t look good for Low Ki

  • BlazeKing

    ArisTrist: For when you want to get stuff done and look good while doing it!

  • CJ Blaze

    Joe wins!!!!!!!!

    • BlazeKing

      I had that spoiled for me at the tapings from Tuesday, lol.

      • CJ Blaze

        Oh yeah. That must be weird going to the second set and not the first.

        • BlazeKing

          Yeah. Everything else was great though.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    JOE’S THE CHAMP!!! FINALLY, TNA GETS IT RIGHT!

    • David Jr.

      Would you have him hold the title for a year and then take Option C?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, I’d have him do IT again! Have him win ALL of the titles!

  • BlazeKing

    Aww look, they’re trying to make King Mo relevant in TNA!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      King Mo will only be relevant when he leaves TNA.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    @AlexBarie:disqus You have wanted Joe to be relevant again for years! There’s the start of his return to the top!

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

      It’s about time! NOW I hope they don’t sour on it with something stupid! Continual build is what they need with him! His popularity will rise fast!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AMEN!

  • Smark Twain

    I wanted more Low Ki v Joe action in that match

    • BlazeKing

      Not in this match, but you’ll see more eventually.

  • BlazeKing

    #ItsAbout2Happen

    • David Jr.

      Snitsky’s going to punt a baby doll?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No, SPUD!

      • BlazeKing

        If he does, it isn’t his fault.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I hate Dixie’s music!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Fired!?!?! All that time I spent trying to learn how to pronounce Rycklon!! Wasted!!!

    • Dave Barton

      Interesting that he still has a profile on WWE…

      http://www.wwe.com/superstars/ezekieljackson

      • Mike McCarthy

        Not weird at all, he’s alumni. He has a better title history than some of the people already on that section of the site.

        • Dave Barton

          Ah yeah, I see it now. I had just googled his name and it took me straight to the page, but now that you mention it, I can find him manually via WWE’s “alumni” section.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Ryklon and Snitsky worked 3 dates? Stupid!

    • Larry Hicks

      yeah thats pretty dumb, hope they come back.

    • BlazeKing

      Stupid? No “BAKA”?!
      Aww….

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It’s so dumb I used English!!!

  • BlazeKing

    God I love how she’s building up that hate for the payoff!

    • Larry Hicks

      was thinking the same thing

  • Larry Hicks

    so true bully

  • CJ Blaze

    Just went from my room to the living room to watch this on the big screen :)

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Dreamer took a heck of a shot!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    THE LOCKER ROOM EMPTIED!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    the roster! and Spud faints LOL

  • BlazeKing

    Damn, didn’t know the locker room was gonna help! HAHAHA!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OORAH!!!

  • CJ Blaze

    Holy. awesome.

  • BlazeKing

    Dat height!!!! HOLY S***!!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BAH GAWD!!! DIXIE CARTER IS BROKEN IN HALF!!! THAT WOMAN HAS CHILDREN BULLY!!!

  • Smark Twain

    It looked like Bully’s ass took the brunt of that lol

  • Mike McCarthy

    Ouch, hope that didn’t hurt her neck. WHAT A SPOT!!!!

  • Larry Hicks

    good show!

  • BlazeKing

    Dixie gets respect for taking that bump.
    *applause*

    • Smark Twain

      I give her more for being able to lay there still when she was really hurt

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Even I, a staunch hater of Dixie Carter as a person and as a character, have to give her some respect for that spot!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    She hit pretty good on her neck! and back! Bully protected her as well as he could.

    • Larry Hicks

      yeah she bounced a little when her head hit the mat

  • Mike McCarthy

    She bounced off the canvas when she landed, that did not look pretty. But Dixie took it like a champ!!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, she took it rough. But when you aren’t a trained wrestler, you can’t be expected to know how to protect yourself properly.

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

    Now that was a history making segment! So glad I could write that!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This show right here is what I qualify as an A quality show. Perfect action, good segments, and HISTORY being made!

  • CJ Blaze

    Wow, we hit 230 comments!!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! A quality show gets a quality reaction! Still a far cry from 1 August 2013, but that was Rage commenting! 481 that night!

      • CJ Blaze

        We’ll get there. The NYC shows are helping.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          They are. TNA is getting back to the fundamental points of what makes a good wrestling show. I’m hoping that TNA continues the momentum in the next set of tapings.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Goodnight everyone, and I’ll see you for Raw on Monday!

    • CJ Blaze

      Peace!
