Impact Wrestling Results (8/8/13) – Devon, Get The Table!!!

Impact Wrestling Results – 8/8/2013
From Wichita Falls, Texas
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Taz, Mr. Anderson, and Bully Ray are backstage with Mike Tenay. Anderson holds him as Taz tells him off. He says Mike has the night off. Tenay better leave or Anderson will knock his teeth down his throat. Taz and Anderson leave while Bully points out the door and Mike goes that direction.

A video plays showcasing what has happened last week. Chris Sabin is not going to be bullied by Bully Ray. Main Event Mafia gave Aces & 8s an offer that they couldn’t refuse. Lastly, Tito Ortiz shows up. Why though? Rampage is shown and he says that the Main Event Mafia are going to find out why he is there.

Aces & 8s music play. Mr. Anderson, Bully Ray, and Taz come out. Jeremy Borash is at the commentator’s desk. Taz meets up with him. Mr. Anderson stands next to Mike. Taz trashes Borash and says that is his next… not anyone else. He is in his chair, but there is another chair and Taz will take that. Bully Ray has a mic in the ring. He says he is not in a good mood. The August 1 Warning guy is Tito Ortiz. He is not impressed. Ray does surprises better than anyone. Ray tells Ortiz to not get near him otherwise he will hit Ortiz right in the face. Ray goes on to explain the other reason why he isn’t happy. Tonight, Ray and Devon face Sabin and a mystery opponent from the Main Event Mafia. Ray says they should be told because they are the best tag team in history. It’s okay though because Bully Ray has Sabin next week in a Steel Cage and he will be a 2 time TNA World Champion. Ray tells Sabin to come out here with the title and the contract so they can get it over with.

Chris Sabin’s music plays. He comes out with the title around his chest. He walks to the ring. Ray wants Sabin’s music off. He says his belt look horrible around Sabin. He can also tell Sabin is scared of him. Chris says looks can be deceiving. Earlier this year, Ray deceived everyone by being a good little guy who even married Brooke Hogan. Ray’s eyes are brown and his breath sounds like fesus… that’s how bad he is. If you asked the TNA stars earlier this year whether Chris Sabin would beat Ray for the title, everyone would have said no except for Sabin. Sabin played Ray at his own game. He will do it again. Ray wants the contract now. He calls out Hogan! Music hits and here comes Brooke Hogan! She gets on the stage. Ray wants her music off too. Brooke has a mic.

Brooke says her dad is out of town. He has been reviewing Ray’s contract and the title contract. Hulk sent Brooke an email. She reads it. She reads the contract states that if Bully Ray doesn’t win the Steel Cage Match, then he will never get a World Title Match again. Ray says he is not going to be bullied by anyone… especially by a little Hogan. Brooke walks down the ramp and gets in the ring. Brooke asks Ray if the whole world has to find out that he is all talk but he is small and has little action. Ray wants the contract. He gets it. Both sign and it’s official!

Jeremy Borash, Taz, and Anderson are shown at the desk. Anderson and Taz are at Borash’s throat as he just recapped what just went down. They think he is behind it and they could take him out easily.

We see Jeff Hardy warming up backstage. We see at another camera shot that Samoa Joe is warming up backstage. Their match is next.

Everyone forgot about the three people standing here now. Daniels, Kazarian, and the It Factor of professional wrestling… Bobby Roode. They are 25% of the BFG Series. Do the math.

Kurt enters the ring and celebrates with Chris Sabin. The show fades as they raise their arms.

Alex’s Assumptions:

This show certainly had a different feel then last week and it was quite obvious. Last week was talked about… probably talked about too much… but talk is great for any wrestling show. While the heat has almost settled down, it still carried into this week with Tito Ortiz. We heard he was going to speak, but what would he say? We barely heard anything as Kurt Angle appeared and told him that this is his ring. I do like Kurt confronting these MMA stars. I also liked how he fought this week in the main event. That whole opening swerve with Sting was great. Who knows when we will see another Kurt match, but I wish him the very best. Overall, this was a solid show with nice wrestling… and sweet little swerves. I talked about character development this week on behalf of WWE with their Raw show, but I can almost speak the same with TNA Wrestling tonight. Bobby Roode shined as he is now back to himself. Even though he did team up with Bad Influence (They very well would never turn on each other), Roode will stick it to them at the last moment, I think. Chris Sabin is that great underdog and can really carry himself. Robbie E and Jessie are those annoying buggers that won’t go away, but somehow they are so annoying that they are a little entertaining. The Knockout division is very limited in the number of Knockouts, but each have a purpose with different characters. Thanks everyone for joining us. I won’t be writing next week’s show as I am going on vacation, but whoever will, treat them with respect and I’m sure I’ll give my thoughts when I can of the show on my Facebook page!

    Welcome to this week’s Impact Watch Party! I am your co-host Jesse Sherwood and there is a stunning show lined up this week as we prepare for Hardcore Justice next week! Let’s Break it Down!

    1. Last week, Tito Ortiz revealed he was behind the #August1Warning videos! What will the former UFC fighter do tonight?

    2. The MEM did in fact have an offer that A’s and 8′s couldn’t refuse! Now with Hardcore Justice only a week away, this show will be one of the last appearances for one of the teams members!

    3. The BFG Series has three HUGE matches lined up, as Bad Influence will face one another, Magnus will go against Mr. Anderson, and Jeff Hardy will go toe-to-toe with Samoa Joe!

    4. Brooke alluded to the fact there could be some bad stipulations for Bully Ray in his Cage Match next week unless he makes her happy! What could they be?

    All of this and more will happen tonight! What are you hoping to see?

    • David

      Would you like to see dissension between Daniels and Kazarian?

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

        I’d love to see some issues between them – personally.

        • David

          Time to break up Bad Influence?

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

            I feel like we haven’t seen all of them yet. They could very well break up, but I want to see them as TNA Tag Team Champions.

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

            I’m with you on that. BA isn’t completely done, but that doesn’t mean they can’t fight for a bit.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m not sure. They work so well off each other that I don’t, but then again I’d like to see Daniels back into the singles scene.

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

    Earlier I wasn’t excited about Impact, but the closer it gets, the more excited.

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

    Hey everyone! Quite stoked for the Jeff Hardy vs. Samoa Joe match tonight. Sometimes the matches can be a pain to write, but I have especially enjoyed some in recent weeks. Last week had Sabin vs. Manik and AJ vs. Aries. Joe vs. Jeff should be sweet.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Personally, I’m intrigued by Bad Influence facing one another. Also, the Magnus/Anderson match should be a blast!

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

      I cannot imagine how hard it was to write Sabs vs Manik! Some matches are so fast my fingers want to cry, and that’s one that had to do that.

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

        The three way X-Division bouts are killers. I try do write every single move that happens, but it is almost impossible!

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

          Yeah, I don’t envy you those. When filling in I realized how evil they are, but you’re still lucky in that Impact is only two hours each week. It feels so short compared to RAW!

    • Jon Harris

      we have seen this match before so its nothing new but it should be good

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Jon, why does every match have to be new? Look at it like this, if TNA was to have every member of the roster face each other in Singles matches and air 5 per week on Impact, which is their average number of bouts a week, we would see every match TNA had to offer in a little over 2 1/2 years. Then there would be nothing left other than gimmick matches and tag teams.

        • Jon Harris

          we are lucky if we get 4 matches a week never 5 matches a week

          • Jesse Sherwood

            You’re wrong. We have been getting 5 a week for some time now. Look over the Results archive.

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

            Actually, I’ve been running numbers, there’s almost always 5 matches on every show. I ran a lot of numbers today, and every show I looked at had five matches.

            EDIT – Every Impact had five matches.

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

            And I ran the match length numbers for both RAW and Impact, just to see where they averaged out for each show, as you were so sure Impact’s matches were all so much shorter than RAW’s matches.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Also, you didn’t answer my question. Why does every match have to be new?

  • Jon Harris

    aces and eights have lost all of there special feel by entering to the ring by the ramp now

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Would you rather TNA continue risking a lawsuit? A’s draws legit heat from the crowd and fans have got physical with them multiple times. I prefer the crowd entrance, but it needed to be changed.

      • Jon Harris

        the sheild comes through the crowd still and theres no problem there so whats the different

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

          Different companies. Apples and oranges for things like that. They each have very different insurance policies.

          • Jon Harris

            now aces and eights just feels normal now just blending in with everything out

        • Jesse Sherwood

          The company and the faction. The Shield, despite being heels, garner a positive reactions, Also, WWE insures their performers against issues such as this, whereas TNA leaves that liability on the performers. TNA wants to mitigate risk.

  • David

    Is Rick Achberger in the crowd? or is that just some guy in a red hat?

  • Jon Harris

    well we know bully ray is winning the title back next week now and tna gave it away

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

      Maybe, but you know that none of these companies keep to those stips. WWE is worse for it, but even TNA has issue with it at certain times. You could be right, or maybe not. Only time will tell. Why not enjoy the show for once?

      • David

        I could see Sabin winning, Then have a match Bully Ray vs. A representative for Hogan, with the stipulation if Bully Ray wins he gets to have title shots again, but if Hogan’s representative wins Brooke and Bully Ray get a divorce.

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

          That’s a great swerve idea. It says he can’t fight for the strap again, doesn’t mean Anderson (or anyone else) can’t hand the belt over to him.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not necessarily. Bully Ray is 42 and is taking more responsibility behind the scenes. He could be trying to let other stars take the reigns.

      • Jon Harris

        i doubt it

  • Jon Harris

    not much of a contract signing at all

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Just because it didn’t get physical like almost EVERY contract signing in WWE? It served its purpose to relay the new stip and let Sabin and Bully be face-to-face.

      • Jon Harris

        it felt rushed to and maybe but it just felt off to me

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

      Actually, the fact that it didn’t devolved to a fist fight was quite refreshing. Yes, Bryan and Cena didn’t duke it out either, but that was such a different feel.

  • Jon Harris

    theres a summerslam promo durning impact wrestling

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

      There is quite often PPV info about the opposite company during each show. I’ve seen it both ways. That’s the PPV companies running the demographics and advertising. Really has nothing to do with the wrestling company at all.

      • Jon Harris

        i never never see a tna promo durning a wwe show ever

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

          I have, quite a few times, but that’s part of my job to notice those things.

          • Jon Harris

            oh i haven’t in a very long time

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

            I actually have, within the past six months. Normally I comment on it, but not always. Also, as I said, different providers do different things, even in different areas of the country. I’m on DISH in Maine. Though, knowing how close you are, you should be on the same loop I am – if you have DISH.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It must just be your cable provider, because I didn’t see it.

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

        There is also that. Different companies – Cable companies, DISH, DirecTV, etc. – play different commercials and at different times.

        • David

          I’m actually surprised you don’t see it more. What better audience to advertise to.

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

            That’s why the PPV companies do it. They look at the demographics. Makes perfect sense.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I agree, but typically that is on the Satellite provider to think of that.

    • David

      It’s kind of cool to see that 5 of the top 6 guys in the Standings have no WWE experience.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well… By technicality Samoa Joe and AJ Styles do. They did about 3 Velocity shows.

        • David

          I know, but people associate Samoe Joe and AJ Styles as TNA guys, not TNA Guys, who use to be in WWE.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I know. I was joking around. I find humor in little facts like that!

      • Jon Harris

        jeff hardy did to

        • David

          What?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          By top 6 he means via points. Hardy is technically 7th.

          • Jon Harris

            hardy is in 5th

          • Jesse Sherwood

            After this match, I’ll break it down the way TNA does to show you. I break it down like this because that’s how my CPU formats it.

  • Jon Harris

    directv is not airing any more tna’s one night ppvs

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

      I saw that somewhere else on WNW. I’m not at all surprised.

      • Jon Harris

        i read its because of the very low buyrates for the other one night only ppvs

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

          I’m not surprised about that. I was actually shocked that they were doing pre-taped PPVs. Daft business sense. Or, this is Dixie – no business sense!

          • Jon Harris

            yea me to and they have to do something different next year for there ppvs i bet they add more live ppvs

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

            I hope they do, but they need to make them a lot more creative, exciting, build better – the way they do for BFG – and do a lot with the X Division.

          • Jon Harris

            yea i bet they do like 6 to 8 live ppvs

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

            It would make more sense – if they can bring in the numbers to not lose money, and that’s hard right now.

          • Jon Harris

            yup

          • Jon Harris

            i say do 8 live ppvs next year

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

            Only if they can make money off the big ones they put out this year.

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

    I find it interesting to note that I ended up with about ten more Twitter followers after my tirade on Dixie Carter after Impact last week!

    • Jon Harris

      i wonder if they rating for tonights show will sufer because of last weeks show

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

        Be shocked if it doesn’t! Plus it’s taped – always lower ratings.

        • Jon Harris

          true but tna taped show have got higher ratings then live shows do sometimes

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

            Only with really great and exciting things happening. Never know.

          • Jon Harris

            yea

  • David

    Since there next pay per view is Bound for Glory, when does this BFGs Series end?

    • Jon Harris

      i have no idea

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

      Good question! Jesse?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It ends at BFG with the final 3 matches between the top 4 members of the series.

      • Jon Harris

        he means on what date

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Jon, I just said when it ends. The series ends at Bound For Glory with the top 4 in the standings facing off in 3 matches that night to crown the winner.

          • Jon Harris

            no means on what date will it end like sometime in september

          • David

            I think he’s saying it will end on 10/20/13 at Bound For Glory.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Thank you. That was exactly what I meant.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Considering some guys have only had 3 matches in the series, that would be very difficult.

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

            That’s kind of how the BFG Series goes as there’s no rematches. There’s few storylines and feuds to be built from it. It does happen, just rarely.

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

            They’re continuing, but few are building, and that’s how it always is. I like the BFG Series for that reason. Seeds are planted, but few actually explode.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That was her point. Feuds rarely get built in the series because of the nature of the tournament itself.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            There has been, focusing on MEM and A’s and AJ’s attempt to win for himself. The tournament is its own storyline.

  • Dast

    TNA will never be a WWE.Its more like an OVW or ECW kind of thing

    • Jon Harris

      yes TNA is not on WWE level right now and there not even close but maybe in 2 or 3 years who knows

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

      Not the way the company is being run. It’s possible, but Dixie seems to be hurting the company more than helping it most of the time. That they went on the road was smart, but then the releases and MMA guys. One steps forward, two steps back.

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

        Kendra, you think TNA is giving Tito a paycheck. As far as I know, Spike TV signed Ortiz.

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

          As far as I know TNA isn’t giving him money, but that doesn’t make it a smart step for TNA. If they’re letting Spike dictate so much, maybe that’s part of TNA’s issues!

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

            Yes, but I’m not sure, especially after the releases and the financial changes, that they’re paying Tito. There’s no question that Tito is getting much bigger money than the other two, possibly bigger than the other two together.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Right now, there is no proof either way on where the MMA guys paychecks are coming from except King Mo. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if TNA is paying him as well as Spike.

    • David

      I don’t think TNA should try to be WWE. They should try to be TNA.

  • Dave

    Who will be next to jump ship?tna to wwe or vice versa

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

      I don’t see any of the most recent releases to go to the WWE. They just don’t have it in them. I also don’t see the WWE letting anyone go that could help TNA right now, so it’s a tough question.

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

        Only time will tell on him as well.

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

      I will believe that when I see it. It’s been teased more often than not.

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

        This isn’t the first time that’s happened. He’s done it in the past.

  • Dave

    Sting to wwe hof?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe in a few years, but not until Sting has fully retired.

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

        Agreed!

  • devin steele

    too busy watching something else like preseason football on espn bengals@falcons

  • David

    No it was brilliant, Magnus is so far ahead of everybody, They had Bobby Roode, help bring him down a little.

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

      That is your opinion. But if you give it, maybe you might want to give an explanation.

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

        You really don’t see the brilliance in it for Roode’s character, do you?

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

          Which is exactly what Jesse, Alex and I have been saying!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    No, it was perfectly logical. Take points away from the leader so you can catch him. Roode is playing the game well.

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

      It was fantastic, and smart work. It was also a great swerve that I didn’t see coming.

      Can’t get your own wins/points, then screw over the top guy! Brilliant!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        So you are saying you saw Roode hitting Anderson with a chair? I know I didn’t!

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

          And neither Jesse, nor I do, so it was a surprise to us. Some of us like to watch the show as it airs, and enjoy the surprises as they come. Because it’s not a surprise to you doesn’t mean it’s okay to be cranky that it wasn’t a surprise to you.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Well, then it didn’t swerve you because of that. Not everyone reads spoilers. I don’t because I like to be surprised when I watch a show. Why would I watch something I knew the outcome of?

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

      I can’t say I like dirty endings, but that one made so much sense in storyline! You were complaining about the lack of storylines in the BFG Series earlier, and now there’s a huge one and you’re complaining!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Roode is going back to the selfish person and will do anything to win, including screwing people. His character development is a storyline in the series.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Ok, so lets just not do anything then. There will never be anything new anymore because everything has been done in one form or fashion before.

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

        Language, and watch the nastiness. We have tried to keep our own tempers with the negativity and the attacks – which I know you’re not always like, because I’ve seen you on a WWE FB page – so keep your language and your attacks to yourself.

        Last warning.

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

          Jon, I have said it before, and this is the absolute last time. I’m not arguing with you about this. You will not cuss, attack, or get nasty with anyone here. There’s no space for argument, so don’t. This is it!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Roode just swung the point balance back in his favor with a net of -7 points. Sure he helped Anderson a little bit, but hurt Magnus much more.

      • David

        Isn’t it -10 for a DQ?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yes, but Anderson gains 3 for a net of -7 off the whole board.

          • David

            Oh sorry didn’t see you say net.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Do you understand Net Losses? It’s like net pay after taxes. That’s the full point swing off of the entire board, not just one person. Magnus lost 10 but Anderson gained 3 so that means the board lost a total of 7 points off of the entire board.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            What no what? You don’t understand? When you get paid from your job $300 for a weeks work, you don’t get the whole thing because of taxes. Same principle.

      Doesn’t Magnus have 39 now?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I saw the error and edited it. Refresh to see the correct values.

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

    I’m glad Angle has gone for help.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He’s in rehab, so I bet not.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, It’ll be a 4-on-4 match now or MEM will get a ringer.

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

          Something will happen. Most of the time rehab for alcohol is in-patient, if they want to do it right. Or, the first 30 days are, and I don’t see Angle in a cut-rate rehab.

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

          I will be shocked if Angle returns for the match. Knowing what I know about rehab, I can’t see as he’d be out for a match.

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

        Well, I doubt we will be seeing him then. I doubt he would come out of rehab for a match.

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

      Obviously, he’s in rehab, as I just said, he’s gone for help.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TNA doesn’t have time for it with the BFG series. It’ll pick back up after the Series is over.

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

      They rarely use most belts during this series. Happened in years past as well. It is what it is, and why the series works so well.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        But there were very few matches within the division. Also, TNA’s roster was 20 people heavier then.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          So you liked the dead Impact Zone?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, costs are a part of business, as is roster cuts. 80% of them were dead weight, so why should TNA have kept them around? Personally, other than 3-4 of them, I think it was a smart move.

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

        You want to argue every little point to prove how right you are about everything. It gets old. Discussion is nice, arguing gets old.

        Discussion is a give and take, but arguing is saying how you’re right over and over without backing it up.

        • David

          I agree. Thank you for saying it.

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

            Thank you for that, I think you’ve helped me make a decision.

          • David

            What decision?

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

            Come find me on FB and I’ll fill you in.

          • David

            I would, but I don’t have a facebook account.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Twitter?

          • David

            No, to that either.

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

            I give you huge props for staying out of social media. It’s a tangled web.

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

            And that’s the decision I was talking about. Someone has been removed from this site.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Because they can’t just abolish a major title when the focus isn’t on the division.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Here you go! Tag Division and KOs in the same match!

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

    So, I ran the numbers from the summer because I was straight out told that TNA Impact’s matches are shorter than RAW’s matches. That all of RAW’s matches are longer than Impact’s matches. Now, let me state that ever episode of Impact that I looked through had five matches each.

    I decided to look at the averages of matches with and without the main event of each show included. The first number after each show is without the main event, the second number is with the main event included.

    RAW 5:16 & 7:18
    Impact 9:25 & 9:47

    Therefore, what these numbers prove is that the average match on RAW is much shorter than the average match on Impact.

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

      You cannot take the proof for face value, can you? The discussion was about recent episodes of both shows. These are the numbers for the summer. Why can’t you believe it?

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

        Yes, I did.

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

          I actually spent the better part of two hours finding the numbers and doing the math this evening.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That is what she just said.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And I am working on Smackdown’s numbers. Last week’s show follows the same trend as Raw with 6:08 without and 7:43 with.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And before it gets said, I only started timing Smackdown a couple of weeks ago and am working on going through the archives to have a full set of numbers.

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

      If Raw had more matches, it would make sense that their numbers would be higher than Impact’s. Now that is sense for you.

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

        Exactly, which means they have a bigger base to draw from, and their number should be better for it – as you stated in the original discussion.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Raw has 8-9 matches each week and only typically has 50-60 minutes of action, where TNA has 5 and averages 45 minutes.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love Team 3D being back together. Devon has always worked better with someone to work off of.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Personal issues is the only confirmed thing. Don’t believe NEWZ rumors.

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

      You never know, but you do know that writers for WNW wait for confirmation from Richard before confirming or denying anything here.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, and without confirmation from her it is a rumor. Take stuff like that with a grain of salt.

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

    Continued a storyline, and another swerve. Why is that pointless?

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

      Kaz and Daniels have been teasing the beak up of Bad Influence. That they stood together was a swerve to that.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Have you watched the show tonight? They teased it all night and ever since the Jokers Wild in Vegas when Kaz rolled up Daniels.

      • David

        Yeah because best friend tag teams never break up. I mean look at Rhodes Scholars.

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

        They had two segments of them talking about issues between them on this episode tonight!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It gives both of them points. Kaz is on the board and Daniels moves up to 6th.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    1. Magnus – 39 Points
    2. Samoa Joe – 26 Points
    3. (Tied) Jeff Hardy – 24 Points

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

    Another faction? Three is too many?

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

      Three is too many? Why? I think it’s fantastic that they’re looking toward the future. You’re the one who keeps claiming A&8′s has run its course.

      • David

        I bet you can go to any era in wrestling history for any company and you’ll see at least 3 factions.

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

          Three is a great number in my opinion. I love the return of more factions. Makes me think back to days of Heenan, Hart Foundation and so many more!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, first you complain about a lack of storylines in the BFG Series, but when a faction develops in the series, thus a storyline, you complain! Why can’t you enjoy anything in TNA?

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    The Four Way Ladder Match set for next week looks amazing. I hope either Austin, AJ or Kaz Wins.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Personally, considering the amount of points on the line, I think AJ needs to. That will propel him into 1st.

      • Navin T. Ramkissoon

        I certainly hope so. It will freshen things up a bit. AJ has always been one of my favorites and deserves whatever success he gets

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Nice to have you here tonight by the way!

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            Thanks Jesse.

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

          Yes, it is nice to have you here.

          • Navin T. Ramkissoon

            Thanks Kendra.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else getting a little nostalgia seeing Team 3D back in the ring together? I know it’s only been 3 years since the breakup, but it feels like so much longer.

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

      It does, and it’s nice to see them together, but I think the time apart did them a lot of good.

      • David

        Especially, Bully Ray.

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

          I think it’s been good for Devon too, just not as good. Bully has the mic skills and charisma to get over. Devon seems more reserved.

          • Adam Paul Haase

            All they need is Runt AKA Spike and it will feel like old times.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        It let Bully grow into his own person. I wouldn’t have it any other way, but dang if they aren’t the best tag team of all time! LOD is the only one I can say is better.

        • David

          With the championships and longevity, I’d have to agree.

        • Navin T. Ramkissoon

          Also they have been able to excel in almost every promotion that they have been apart of. It speaks volumes for their work ethic and their professionalism as a team.

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

            Though they have burned some bridges, that’s mostly Bully, not Devon.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            *COUGH COUGH HHH*

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

            It’s no secret that Bully burnt his bridge with Trip, and with that he won’t be back in the WWE. I hope that he didn’t kill The Duddley Boyz’s chance to get in the HOF.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Somehow, I doubt it will. They have more than proven themselves on a global scale after they left WWE.

    • Navin T. Ramkissoon

      They are one of the greatest tag teams of all time. I was actually watching the inaugural TLC Match on YouTube this morning. I can’t believe its been 13 years already since that happened.

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

    Sabin looks fantastic in the ring!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hail Sabin!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    That was a well done main event. It sets up next week’s World Title Match nicely.

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

      There’s a lot of things that TNA does really well, and that’s continuing storylines and building the big feuds.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And the last match of the night being a great go home match. Last week was a weird exception.

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

          This was a solid show with quite a few lovely swerves.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And this week’s movie is Predator, with Jesse Ventura!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Thanks to everyone for joining us tonight and see you next week!

    Okay, so I’m not too familiar with the news industry so I don’t know how your plagiarism standards work, but this really bothered me so I figured I’d share it.
    http://www.wrestlenewz.com/wrestling/tna-news/tna-impact-wrestling-results-8813/
    Every article Carrier writes seems ripped off from someone and he never sources properly.
    in this case it really felt like he was trying to claim the article as his own – with no original author credit, and the “source” at the bottom doesn’t even link to this article, I had to dig a bit to find it, so a less dedicated person than I who went searching might just assume he got the info about the matches from here and made his own writeup.

    Well, like I said, I’m not familiar with this industry and its plagiarism standards (in my profession however what Carrier did would be considered completely illegal) so I don’t know if this behavior is considered acceptable practice, but regardless I find it very dishonest that Carrier didn’t at least put “article by Alex Barie” somewhere on the page.

    And as another note, a small typo in the article;
    you say “Bully’s breath sounds like fesus” when it should be “smells like feces”. Other than that good article.
    Also, I’ve gotta say I think I’ve found my new wrestling news site. Reading through the comments your authors seem much more knowledgeable and passionate than any other site i’ve seen.

      Thanks James! Plagiarism is a rampant issue in this industry and we do our best to fight it. If you do see an article that has been taken from this site, please email Richard at richard@grayinternet.com
