Impact Wrestling Results (9/5/13) – Aces & 8s’ Slow Decline In Power

Impact Wrestling Results – 9/5/2013
From Cleveland, Ohio
Report by: Alex Barie of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Impact Wrestling starts off with a video package showing Bully Ray patching Tito Ortiz into the Aces & 8s. The other members aren’t liking this and Anderson expressed his thoughts. Ray cares less. The video switches to AJ Styles and his great promo he cut last week. It then shows Hulk Hogan announcing the 12 man gauntlet match this week. He also announces Bully Ray defending his title at No Surrender against an Aces & 8s member.

The camera shows the arena with the audience standing on their feet cheering. The camera shows Kazarian backstage and says Kaz-mania will run wild tonight as he wins the gauntlet match. Austin Aries says he is going to win it and then it switches to Bobby Roode. He will go on and get the World Title for the second time. Ken Anderson says he is all about gold. AJ Styles is going to get 20 points as that is what he is made to do. Joe wants it and so does Hernandez. Jay Bradley likes money and can get a lot of it if he ruins someone’s evening. He says it will be fun. Park will make us proud while Daniels says he is going on for Bound for Glory. Jeff Hardy has his creatures behind him as he gains 20 points. Magnus is in a good position but he is going to do what he has done and keep his place as number one.

Music hits and it’s Aces & 8s! However, it’s Bully Ray with the TNA World Title, Brooke Tessmacher and Tito Ortiz. They are far ahead of the other members (Wes Brisco, Ken Anderson, Garett Bischoff, Knux). Ray kisses Tessmacher and they continue down the ramp. She opens the rope for him. He raises the title as the other members get in the ring. Ray wants his music shut off and he gets it. He wants to tell everyone something. The Aces & 8s are in total control. He turns to them and says they are the best brothers a leader can have. Without them, Ray would be nothing. They watch his back. They hang and bang. They do it all. He may have been harsh last week, but that’s all behind them. He goes over and hugs Garett and Wes. He moves to Knux and hugs and then pounds the fist of Tito. The crowd says, “Tito sucks.” Ray says the crowd is jealous of him. Every women who wants to be with Ray would like to be with Tito second. Ray turns to Ken and says he is the best VP someone can ask for. Ken is more of a brother than Devon was. Ray and Ken hug. Ray talks about business. Knux will destroy Chris Sabin. Garett and Wes will beat the TNA Tag Team Champions. Ken will win the gauntlet and get the 20 points. Hogan doesn’t have Ray where he wants him. Ray has Hogan in checkmate. He will beat Sting and beat him bad just like he did at Slammiversary. He says the members can leave except for Knux as he has his match while Ray will stick with Taz and his booty lady. The members leave while Ray pumps Knux up.

Chris Sabin’s music plays and he comes out. Chris walks down the ramp and gets in the ring.

Alex’s Assumptions:

Tonight’s episode has really received mixed reviews from the people I talked to and I do have to agree with both sides. This was not the best Impact of the year, but I did like certain things. First off though I want to say what was flat out bad. I really thought the Mickie James segment was horrid. It didn’t sit well with me at all. She was all over the place on the mic. ODB came out and made it entertaining, but I would just say to let the Knockouts fight. That is what they are good at. The other thing that I didn’t like and wouldn’t have done was the 12 man gauntlet match. Why do we need Jay Bradley, Hernandez, Joseph Park in the match if there was no way they could end up in the final four? Imagine if one of them won it? The match would mean nothing. It would have been a waste of time. It was obvious that they wouldn’t win, but it’s all about being logical and efficient. AJ Styles won and I am not surprised. I called him winning the series and going to BFG since April. It’s slowly happening and I am really enjoying it. I also liked the whole angle with Aces & 8s. Lots of people are attacking the story/group because it is going on for too long; however, the story is still developing. It’s not like it hit a standstill. Now the group is slowly splitting and Ken is rising up. While Ken lost his match, the other members won their match. Is Ken suitable to rise up, but where do the other members stand? The group that once took over TNA is now taking over each other. We seen the Main Event Mafia, Chris Sabin, and soon to be AJ Styles battle with the group. It has been worth it! I also liked the backstage segment with Chris Sabin and Velvet Sky. I don’t know who wanted their relationship to become public on the show, but it makes it more realistic and that’s always a great thing. Next week seems like an excellent show with so many great matches. I can’t wait for Austin Aries vs. AJ Styles! I’m going to need my coffee for that match, but I am ready.

    Hello everyone! Very interested in seeing what happens on Impact tonight, but I wish the show was live.

    So, how long will certain people last with their contracts coming up?

    • David

      Is Jesse still under the weather?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, David, I am at about 80%. Much better than Raw!

        • David

          Glad your back.

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

            As am I because there’s no way I could write the BZ and police you guys at the same time!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh, you know you would have loved the challenge!

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

            Most likely would if I wasn’t brain fried from this past week!

          • dean

            Hogan and sting need to go away. they are 54 and 60 years old and they act like it is still 1997 and they have ted turner and his cable networks carrying them around.

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

            Sorry, but they bring in the ratings, especially Sting. He’s the only man of that generation who can still go in the ring as if it was still 1997.

          • dean

            sting and Hogan do not bring in ratings in 2013. tna would not be getting 1.0 ratings if sting was this “big” star. wcw fans stopped watching in 2001 when vince McMahon shut wcw’s lights off.
            Hogan is a relic. the fact that terry stil plays the Hogan character at the age of 60 shows that he is delusional.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Dean, Hogan and Sting are typically in the highest rated segments each week.

          • dean

            Hogan and sting may draw more ratings than the other tna talent but a 1.0 cable rating is nothing to crow about and tna is losing money on their investments.
            Hogan can’t wrestle anymore so he can stand in the ring and say dude AND brother until the cows come home.
            sting is in tna just for the paycheck at this point.
            wwe does not need Hogan and sting. if McMahon wants to make money off these guys, he can just sell their tv footage from wcw, wwe, awa etc.

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

            You’re back peddling. You said sting and Hogan shouldn’t be there and don’t bring in ratings. We proved you wrong and you changed your tune. Do I smell someone from under a bridge?

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

            Just look at the segment numbers, they bring in more ratings, and more merch money.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And I am glad to see you guys kept the comments up in my absence!

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

            Gesus deserves huge props for stepping into your shoes for the night.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I doubt past the first of the year… Hopefully sooner! They are pathetic, soulless, shells of their former glory.

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

    Hey everyone! Thanks for joining us here for Impact Wrestling coverage! It’s going to be a rough one this week with the start of the NFL season! Very curious to see how the ratings go this week!

    • David

      With the game being the defending Super Bowl Champions against a team many think is the favorite to win the Super Bowl, this year. TNA may see record low ratings.

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

      Shows how up on NFL I am, I thought the start was tomorrow!

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

        Haha. I honestly found out from the news. Haha

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

          I saw something on TV about it, but it was on DVR, so I guess I heard it wrong! Bummed as it sounds like a great game.

          • David

            The game is currently in a delay, I don’t know if that’s good for TNA or bad?.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Rain delay? That will be good for them, but when the game starts, we will see a huge drop off.

          • David

            Football doesn’t have rain delays, So I’m thinking it must be lightning.

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

            I thought baseball players were the only pussies when it came to rain.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Hey, I don’t watch that much FB! I assumed they did if there was limited visibility.

          • David

            Limited visibility, Look up the Eagles vs. Bears 1988 playoff game. Referred to as the Fog Bowl. They played that game and you couldn’t see anything.

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

            I’ve seen some pretty sick games. The snow falling so thick that they couldn’t see the ball, nevermind catch it! That’s one reason to watch football over baseball or basketball.

          • David

            My home team plays in a dome, so the only time I can see that is when they’re on the road.

            That sucks. I love watching them brave the weather.

          • David

            My home team is the Lions, just watching them is brave enough.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Don’t feel bad, my closest team is the Rams.

          • David

            The Rams have won a Super Bowl, The Lions has 1 play off win in the Super Bowl Era and oh yeah are the only team to ever go 0-16.

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

            I’m a Pats girl. I have a few other teams I like, but being from Maine…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Personally, I have yet to become a fan of any team. The closest I came was 06-07 Playoffs with the Cowboys, before Romo botched the FG. Then I said never again with that team.

          • David

            You’d think after going 0-16, I’d given up on the Lions, but they’ve always been my team, so if they ever do win, I know I stuck with them even during the bad.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            The only team across all sports I am a fan of is the Spurs, but being stationed in San Antonio and basically having free season tickets…

          • David

            I was born in a state that has a NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, and two major college programs in NCAA Football and Basketball. I’m in a sport state.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And I am in a state that only has the Razorbacks and Red Wolves for NCAA.

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

            I love the Bengals, so I understand being a glutton for punishment.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m just not a sports guy, but have been watching more football because of the brutal strategy involved in it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Calling it now before the show, 0.85

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to this week’s Impact Watch Party! I am your almost fully recovered co-host Jesse Sherwood, and we have a great show lined up tonight! Let’s Break it Down!

    1. Despite Hogan’s botch during his promo last week, Sting will be facing Bully Ray in a non-title match!

    2. Speaking of Hogan, who will he name as the member of the A’s and 8′s that will face Bully Ray for the TNA World Title at No Surrender next week?

    3. Speaking of No Surrender, it will mark the end of the BFG Series! But we have to have a Final 4 for the tournament! With 20 points on the line in a gauntlet match. who will come out on top of the standings?

    4. Mickie James has promised a “Special Performance” tonight! What will it be? (Please, not her singing!)

    All of this and more will happen tonight! What are you looking forward to?

  • Acml Orozco

    hulk hogan…no more words 2say…:-)

  • Jesse Sherwood

    BLECHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Mickie just made me get sick all over again!

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

      What did I miss?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Trashiest outfit since Jenny Jones!

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

          What are you talking about?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Mickie James looked like she just stepped off of the street corner and was high as she talked.

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

            Where? The show hasn’t started yet.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Commercial preview.

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

            Oh, I wasn’t even watching Spike. The network turns my stomach most of the time.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I just make sure I catch it so I can comment. I hate Cops!

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

            I can’t stomach Cops, even to be a good WNW writer!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            She looked worse than Tess, who is blatantly trying to look like a hoochie!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        She looked like she had been smoking out of a crack pipe!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Starting with Bully ray again this week. People complain about Raw having the same start and finish each week, but Bully Ray has opened and closed almost every Impact for the last 6 months.

  • The Breaker

    When is the last time Knux has been in the ring in a singles match?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He hasn’t in TNA since he was unmasked.

      • The Breaker

        Aces & Eights has been built so wonderfully. I haven’t seen a more interesting and dominant faction in wrestling….

        Oh forget it, TNA Creative doesn’t even deserve my sarcasm.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      January 10th, 2013

    • Jesse Sherwood

      In fact, before last week and the BFG “Battle Royal” Knux hasn’t been in a televised match since April 4th.

  • David

    TNA ratings will start plummeting, the game has started.

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

      And Knux is in the ring!

  • The Breaker

    TNA took a page from WWE’s book!

    • David

      That’s why WWE’s #1 Wrestling Company, useless facts.

  • The Breaker

    Wow, Sabin is going hysterical.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Face of the Company? TNA Creative is getting lazy… Oh wait…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And I lose my supper yet again! Mickie Barfing James!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ohhh! Mickie is going to get lots of short letters! You don’t call them Midgets!

  • The Breaker

    That was atrocious.

  • David

    What’s TNA’s obsession with Miley Cyrus, two weeks in a row of mentioning her.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Remember, this is on tape. It was fresh last week!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anything for attention…. Mickie needs her mouth super glued!

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

      And why is she freaked about being seen in a tube top? We’ve seen a lot more of her than that through the years.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Heck, we were seeing it all through her promo!

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

          That was disgusting and pathetic – kind of like Mickie herself!

      • David

        was the top odb took off any smaller than the tube top?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          After the way Mickie shredded it, not really!

        • David

          I mean bigger.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Really? They tried to make it look like she had a malfunction? BAKA!!!

    • The Breaker

      It was a very amateurish stunt.

  • David

    What did ODB just say? Did she say you will not be the TNA Knockout’s Champion? Shouldn’t she have added much longer?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Or ever again?

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

    Do have to say that Mickie James’ promo was bad! I been liking the heel promos she has been cutting, but this one didn’t sit well at all.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Everything about it made me remember why I hoped she would just fall off the face of the earth each week. She looked like she walked off of a street corner, her mic work was non-existent, and her “malfunction” was a pathetic “Look at me!” moment.

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

        “Hoped she would just fall off the face of the earth”…. Powerful statement!

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

          I’m not far off from that at this point!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          After WWE and the start of her TNA run, I truly felt that the Wrestling World would be better off if she just didn’t exist. After that seeping pile of radioactive waste, I feel that way again.

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

      I’m completely disgusted by her and her work, and have been for quite a while. Not impressed at all!

  • The Breaker

    What in the world was that? Did we absolutely have to know that Knux is a messy eater? Will it somehow play into the stoyline?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Way to no-sell a hammer shot too!

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

    Trying to give Jay a character and storyline suddenly?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Too little, too late.

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

        Came off like a beefy Robbie E. Not a good thing for anyone involved!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Seriously, who’s dumbass idea was it to show Knux eating a burger?! He should be checked out for a concussion and shouldn’t be close to eating anything. Way to make anyone else that was out of action from one look weak as heck!

  • David

    This isn’t a gauntlet match, it’s a mini Royal Rumble.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      TNA and match names… #Failures

  • The Breaker

    Well, this one is a snoozefest.

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

      I actually just wrote that word in my BZ for this match! Thanks for the validation!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anderson ignores the man on the ropes and goes after the two in the corner when he entered the ring? WHERE’S THE LOGIC TONIGHT?!?!?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Seriously, did someone give TNA a mass lobotomy this week?

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

      This is a bloody mess!

  • Mike Love

    That was the worst placed cut-to-commercial EVER.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At least we saw Joe’s entrance…

  • Mike Love

    Just as a side comment, isn’t it amusing to hear “What?” chants in another company besides WWE?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And the Yes chants have permeated TNA as well. Honestly, they don’t bother me.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And A’s is out of the BFG Series! Looked nasty for Anderson too.

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

    Anderson really cracked his head upon landing! Those railings look really close to the ring.

    • Douglas Smith

      I replayed it 3 times,,,, He cracked his coconut….LOL

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They are way too close. At least a good 2-3 feet.

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

        I know they’re not allowed to use the railings the way they used to due to insurance reasons, so you’d think they would put them far enough back for everyone’s safety. It’s not like they need those extra three feet for another row of chairs to be squeezed in!

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

        Really makes me wonder why they have/had that rule about not being allowed to crash into them. There’s literally no room for two people to move down there.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I agree Alex. Especially the way I am seeing the setup. The hard camera side has plenty of room.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Appletini chant! The fans know who is truly on the top of the leaderboard!

  • The Breaker

    Despite the appletini chant, the crowd seems spent at this point. And this ‘match’ isn’t giving them any reason to get fired up.

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

      That’s the problem with TNA doing two episodes of Impact in one night.

      • The Breaker

        I completely agree. It makes me think they should consider finding a solitary home for Impact.

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

          They didn’t handle that very well toward the end either. The’re struggling for a lot of reasons right now.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            We are seeing where the constant mismanagement of TNA as a whole is leading them.

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

            Things are getting worse, much worse, rather than better lately, especially since they went on the road.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And we have had a talk on the numbers side as to why that is. I think I know what you can lead the BZ with this week.

          • David

            What are the ratings of Impact, compared to other shows on Spike?

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

            There’s other shows on Spike?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Superior. Most Spike shows draw a 0.5

          • David

            Maybe Spike can buy a portion of the company then.

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

            Jesse, you want to write it?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            At least in part. I’m still a bit foggy.

          • The Breaker

            I really think the road schedule is taking a toll on the writers as well, not to mention the apparent financial struggles the company is having.

          • David

            The keep the crowd into it, they’d probably have to lower the show to like 90 minutes. But in able to do that, they have to see an increase in ratings.

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

            I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

          • David

            An increase in ratings or a 90 minute show?

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

            I with thinking the ratings, but the 90 minute show as well. They’d never drop to less time than Smackdown. It would look like failure.

          • David

            When your ratings are lower than Total Divas, aren’t you already a failure?

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

            Yes, but there’s a difference between being a failure, and what’s perceived as a failure by Dixie.

          • David

            They moved Impact to Monday’s then moved it back to Thursdays, isn’t that basically saying they failed?

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

            I saw it as they saw they were in over their heads and moving too quickly. There’s more problems than just creative being tired, or contracts being cut for money. There’s been a lot of growing backstage issues that haven’t been addressed for too many years. Because of these things TNA seems to really be suffering right now – more than they had been.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Granted, WWE promotes Total Divas more than TNA and Spike both do Impact!

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

            That’s been one of TNA’s biggest problems all along, lack of advertising. Not bad for someone who used to be in marketing – Dixie!

          • David

            Plus if Hulk Hogan promote TNA like he did himself.

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

            Another one of those big problems I’ve been speaking about. I didn’t want to get Alex riled up tonight by talking about what a travesty Hogan has been in TNA. I know Alex doesn’t agree, and Hogan does have a large following, but he’s really done more things to hurt TNA than help the company as a whole.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope. From experience, the 2 hours live take out a lot of the crowd, and the tapings can’t keep the same energy because of fatigue and lack of good build in the arena. TNA just goes from one thing to another with the hopes backstage passes are enough of a lure to keep the crowd hot.

  • Mike Love

    Now why would they eliminate Jay Bradley this early? He should’ve stayed in longer to get some type of decent advantage in the series.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That is laughable! Bradley was the biggest nonfactor in the BFG Series this year! Even Joseph Park had some purpose!

      • David

        I don’t get why they even had him in there.

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

          I agree, and to try to give him purpose at the end was a total joke.

  • Mike Love

    Mike Tenay basically said “No shit” as Christy Hemme announced Samoa Joe’s elimination.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That was one of the most awkward eliminations I have ever seen! LOL at Joe!

  • The Breaker

    So it looks like it’ll be AJ…

  • The Breaker

    Styles, Magnus, Aries, and Roode… who will AJ choose?

    • Douglas Smith

      Aries

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Hmm… Considering there is only one true heel in that mix, I call Roode.

      • The Breaker

        I was thinking the same thing.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Not to mention Roode was in the match that cost him the chance to challenge for a year.

  • TCB

    YES Styles won; as it should have been.

    Now it’s him, Magnus, Roode and Aries. Looking like a good Final Four. Quite possibly the best Final 4 in the BFG Series yet.

    Now is it tournament-style like last year? Or just a Fatal-4-Way?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Tourney.

      • TCB

        Oooo good; I much prefer that way of determining the winner of the series.

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

    Why does AJ have to choose an opponent? It’s usually a Fatal Four Way…

    • TCB

      I thought it would be akin to last year; two semi-final matches and the winner of those two would face off in the final match of the series.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Nope, last year it was a tourney. 2 semifinal matches and the finals in the same night.

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

        Totally forgot about that!

  • TCB

    By the way, this is the first time I’m participating in any live discussion hahaha.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Great to have you TCB!

  • The Breaker

    Thanks for the recap, I almost forgot!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Nice editing of HH’s botch!

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

      I was wondering how they were going to rush to handle that one!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow… I thought it was almost over… Looked at the time and realized it still has 40 minutes. *sigh*

  • The Breaker

    Rampage, you don’t look like a killer with that cheesy smile on your face!

  • The Breaker

    The TNA tag division is pretty slim these days…

    • TCB

      I hope the tag scene picks up after No Surrender and onto BFG.

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

        As long as I get my Storm & Gunner fix, I’m happy!

      • The Breaker

        That would be a shame if they can’t find a credible opponent for the team of Storm & Gunner for their biggest PPV of the year!

    • David

      Who are the legit tag teams, and not 2 guys they stick together and say hey there a tag team.

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

        Robbie E and Jesse?

        • The Breaker

          Those two are legit, but not as wrestlers!

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

            LOL, I absolutely agree on that! You said teams, not GOOD teams!

      • The Breaker

        Bad Influence is the only one that comes to mind.

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

          And since they’re out of the BFG Series… And they’re heels!

          • The Breaker

            Yup, it has to be the best tag team in the biz-in-ous!
            They make Brisco & Bischoff look like overgrown kids trying to be playground bullies!

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

            That’s putting it nicely!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Hernandez and Chavo, technically.

          • David

            Didn’t they break up at the start of the BFG?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            They did, but amicably. They have been in the locker room together throughout the series.

          • The Breaker

            Yeah, but they don’t team together anymore.

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

            I was under the impression they’d be back together after the Series. But they’re not heels, so I don’t see them facing Storm and Gunner.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Have to love that classic AJ music!

  • The Breaker

    I don’t mind seeing Aries and Styles again!

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

      I’m so excited for next week because of that match. Roode and Magnus will be great too, but AJ and Aries!

      • The Breaker

        It’s guaranteed to be a heck of a show anyone who is a fan of wrestling!

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

          I will agree with that, and for the first time in a while I know I’m going to be checking the clock all day next Thursday for Impact. Jesse will be peeling me off the walls all day as I’ll be tweaking at him about it.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            As long as it is tweaking and not twerking, I am cool with it!

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

            LOL, you know me well enough by now! Don’t be gross!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            :) Trying to get back to form sis!

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

            Okay, it is better than you being sick! I will deal with you being rude if you’re feeling better.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes Roode throwing EGO under the bus!

  • Douglas Smith

    YUUUUUUUUP….. Aries!!!!!!! hehe heeeeeeee

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Good call.

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

      Nice one, Dougy! I would be happy with any of them, but I always thought they should do Aries and AJ again. Hope they give them lots of time. I want to write this match. I will need coffee first!

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

        I don’t envy you writing that match! I will be sitting back to enjoy it! Those men work so fast that they’re really hard to write. Actually, in a lot of ways Impact can be harder to write for the speed of some of the wrestlers. But I will stick by RAW being worse for the sheer amount of time!

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

          Very true, but once I get in the groove of things, I can really get into it. I wrote Kurt vs. AJ, Joe vs. AJ, etc before so I am hoping this match is just like those.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anyone else feel like they were watching Braveheart when Magnus said No Surrender?

  • TCB

    Oh my goodness this is best I heard Magnus in a promo. He just looked really comfortable and held his own with Roode pretty well.

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

    Next week is shaping up to have some excellent matches, in my mind. I really need the coffee before the show to keep up with it all!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I will travel to give you a coffee IV Alex.

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

    Someone was holding a bill up to Tess on her way by!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I would too! A couple of hundred… Has to be more than TNA is paying her!

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

        Ouch! Yeah, she obviously is hurting for money, can’t afford real pants! Or even shorts!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          She was a Hooters girl for a while, and if you saw the PPVs they used to produce, she might as well have been a stripper.

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

            She still need to pull her bum in. Her back is so swayed that it hurts to look at her!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Amen! Whoever told her that was sexy needs a hard Gibbs Slap!

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

            You guys are so drooling all over her, so stop acting like you aren’t!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m drooling, but not for the swayed back! It’s her assets and legs!

          • David

            It’s not like you wouldn’t if Kevin Nash was on.

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

            I would be drooling all over Nash, and all the more since I met him! But not if he was sticking his bum out, or working the ring – though he looked better in the live match I saw him in than anything we’ve seen on TV from him in ten years.

    What’s with the big blonde holding up the sign telling Hogan that she’s his brother?

  • The Breaker

    So what are the chances Anderson inadvertently (or maybe not so much) costs Bully the match?

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

      Um, huge?

      • The Breaker

        Bigger than Hot Brooke’s… you know!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Assets?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And here comes my buzzkill! HH!

    • David

      Triple H’s ego is huge but you probably could fit 10 of Triple H’s ego comfortably in Hogan’s.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’d say 30. Heck, even 10 of VKM’s!

  • The Breaker

    Isn’t Hogan just inviting Aces & Eights to come out by adding the No DQ stip? The only person he banned from ringside is Ortiz, after all.

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

      Inviting MEM, but then Anderson will screw Bully somehow.

      • The Breaker

        So Hogan thinks MEM will come out to gang up on Bully? It makes sense, but being the faces they wouldn’t do that.

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

          Bull they wouldn’t!

  • TCB

    So Ortiz is banned, but now Hogan made it No DQ.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      #IllogicalBooking

      • TCB

        So the rest of the MFM and Aces would brawl, and during the chaos Anderson can blatantly cost Bully the match.

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

          Exactly!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          We don’t need the No DQ stip for that. MEM and A’s have brawled tons without the stip.

  • The Breaker

    He’s going to pile drive him!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Didn’t anyone learn from BJ Whitmer?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Way to go Bully, try to slice Taz’s hand open by tossing an open box cutter!

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

    If Sting’s hair wasn’t thinning, you’d see almost no difference in the man from 10+ years ago.

  • The Breaker

    So he screwed Bully as we expected…. BUT BULLY TAPPED! Horrible booking.

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

      It was horrid!

  • TCB

    Bully taps, wow I wasn’t not expecting him to tap. Eh.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anderson face turn!!!

  • TCB

    Going through the Face-Heel Revolving Door once again….it’s the next challenger for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship..FROM GREEN BAY WINSCONSIN, MRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. AND-ERRRRRRRRRR-SOOOOOON

    AN-DERRR-SOOOOOON

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, he is the only A**hole that can do the face/heel flop so well!

      • jdl

        He doesn’t do the face/heel flop well, TNA just puts him with the faces when he’s a face and the heels when he’s a heel. Anderson plays the same character either way. It also means very little when you take into account that Anderson has had about eight turns since he joined TNA in between 3-4 month long absences.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I was being facetious. TNA has had two people that have similar direction problems. One is no longer with the company and the other is Anderson.

  • TCB

    So next week it’s a given to have four matches; all four are going to great in their own right.

  • The Breaker

    Anderson has switched from face to heel and back again so many times that I couldn’t care less about him. And honestly, he hasn’t been working wonders in the ring either.

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

    I have to give it to TNANews.com writer Ric Santos as he actually predicted the whole Ken Anderson story months ago even before anyone was questioning him!

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

      I questioned him from the first couple weeks he was brought into the group.

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

        I more so questioned whether it was a good role for him. Not so much as heel but whether being in a group would work since he has always been a singles guy. Never expected he would rise up and want more power.

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

          I knew he was either a mole, or wouldn’t be able to handle being under Bully’s thumb. Anderson just gave too many interesting looks from the start, and I never believed him to be an honest part of the group. Been saying that since the start in my BZ.

  • TCB

    Well it’s been nice doing this for the first time. I do watch TNA (if not watch, read) and have been watching it again since…mid 2011 I believe. I can’t remember much from pre-2010 but I look up on it.

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

      I’m glad you joined us! It’s always nice to see new people joining in our conversations – even if tonight was a bit tame. Hope to see you back here next week!

      • TCB

        Oh I do want to be back for next week; the BFG Series is something that I find really positive for TNA and seeing who wins is always enjoyable.

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

          It is one of the best things TNA does, and one of the few things they do really well. Next week should have some sick matches!

          • TCB

            Now I’m wondering (and actually expecting really) the BFG Series Final match to be the ‘main event’ of next week’s show. No disrespect to the World Title match.

  • LBP365

    Have to admit one of the best impact had everything u want( well except for the no DQ but, banned Ortiz). But now the question is ask can they string two good shows in a ROW!!!!! Due to over thinking or feeling they have to have a shock value they haven’t this a chance I DVR the show a few friends that never saw TNA like it so don’t BLOW IT!!!!!!!!!
