Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com

Hello everyone and welcome to Wrestling News World’s live coverage of TNA Bound For Glory. I’m Sean Hopkins and I’ll be providing multiple updates for each match throughout the night. Thanks to Alex for pre-show results!

The show opens with a video package the spends a lot of time focusing on AJ Styles and his long history in TNA, as well as his recent trials and tribulations leading up to this match. No pyro, but Tenay welcomes us to the premiere TNA event of the year, Bound for Glory. He immediately begins speculating about the Styles/Bully Ray match, before throwing it to the ring for the Ultimate X Match. Chris Sabin is out to the ring third, and he’s got Velvet Sky in tow, talking trash to the fans on his way down the ramp. Tenay notes that this is Sabin’s 16th Ultimate X match. Samoa Joe is out next, and the fans are excited to see the big Samoan man.

Austin Aries is the next man out to the ring, and Aries too gets a very nice reaction from the crowd in his second appearance in Ultimate X. Tenay mentions that Aries won his first Ultimate X match. The champion, Manik, is the last man to the ring, and he doesn’t get too much of a reaction at all, especially compared to all the other men in the ring.

The start:

The bell rings and Sabin goes right to climb the turnbuckle. Everyone stares at him, and Sabin backs off and goes to the floor. Sabin yanks Aries out of the ring while everyone else fights on the inside. Aries slams Sabin’s head into the steel structure on the outside.

Mid-match notes:

Everyone else follows to the outside and brawls while Sabin and Manik head back into the ring. Sabin catches Manik in the tree of woe and stomps on his crotch.

Aries comes in, breaks it up, and hits a kneebreaker belly to back suplex combination.

Aries goes to climb the ropes again and Hardy pulls him down, hitting a crazy throw, tossing Aries across the ring face first into the mat. Hardy heads to the outside and pulls out a ladder. Joe hits the ropes and takes out Hardy with an elbow suicida. Joe picks up the ladder, but is caught with a baseball slide from Sabin. Manik hits Sabin with a dropkick out to the apron. Aries heads to the top and dives to the outside to take out Joe and Manik. Aries heads into the ring and props himself up lazily in the corner, posing, before heading back up to the ropes.

Winner and NEW X Division Champion: Chris Sabin

Sabin bails and celebrates with his title and a very reluctant looking Velvet Sky while everyone else looks on disappointed in the ring. The ring clears and the crew goes to work dismantling the Ultimate X structure. Tenay and Taz turn talk to Bully Ray and AJ Styles. They discuss the No DQ, No Count-out stipulation. Taz says that Styles is in trouble, and Tenay asks if this may be the last night we see Styles in TNA. Tenay says all through the night we’re going to re-live AJ Styles moments.

This leads into clips from AJ Styles vs. Jerry Lynn from 2002 when AJ Styles beat Lynn to become the X-Division Champion. Video is shown from earlier today of AJ Styles arriving at the arena for the show. Back into the arena, and Bad Influence make their way out to the ring. Tenay says we’re scheduled for the World Tag Team Championship match between BroMans, and James Storm and Gunner. Kaz has a mic and he says not since the premiere of Brokeback Mountain have two men been screwed more than Bad Influence. The fact that they aren’t wrestling for the titles is an embarrassment, not only to TNA, but to them, the best tag team in the business, and to each and every one of the turds in attendance.

Daniels says this is Bound for Glory, the PPV that is supposed to celebrate that which is TNA, and despite the fact that TNA has treated them like the step-children of the company, they are TNA. They are the best tag team this company has ever seen, and Daniels knows a way that TNA can make it up to them. Fact: tonight, Bad Influence beat Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez. Fact: Eric Young and Joe Pancake aren’t a tag team, but a fisherman and a lawyer, so their win shouldn’t count.

And third, the company like to throw curveballs and throw people into the match at the last minute, and based on their pristine record, Bad Influence should be added to the card tonight. BI is interrupted by Eric Young who makes his way to the ring wearing trunks and a backwards baseball cap. Young tells BI that he’s not a trouble maker. He doesn’t feel bad, he doesn’t want a match, he’s already beaten them once tonight. Young says he’s here on official, scientific business. He’s a scientist. BI did something earlier, they created a monster. Everyone here and EY know, and BI are the only two that don’t realize that they should run. Young tells them to run. Daniels shake Young’s hand, then attacks while he’s shaking Kaz’s hand.

They stop when Abyss’ music hits, and the monster returns. Abyss heads into the ring and takes out both Daniels and Kaz with clotheslines. Abyss hits the black hole slam on Daniels. Abyss misses a punch on Kaz, but connects with another black hole slam. Abyss stares down Young, and walks over to him in the corner. Eric begs off, but Abyss offers his hand. Abyss helps Young to his feet and smiles. Abyss poses for the fans before Tenay sends it to the back. JB is backstage and he says they’re reading the feedback on Twitter as it comes in. He introduces his guests, James Storm and Gunner. Gunner says BroMans earned their title shot tonight. But he tells them not to worry about their tan, gym, their girl, or dancing. They call themselves the BroMans, but Gunner sees people who aren’t ready. Storm says BroMans were lucky, but they should be good. Storm tells BroMans that he’s sorry about their damn luck.

TNA Tag Team Championship Match

The BroMans are out to the ring first accompanied by Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath. Jesse and Robbie E. don’t seem to necessarily be fan favorites.

Jesse pulls Gunner off the ropes and makes the tag to Robbie.

BroMans throw Gunner into the corner hard before Robbie mounts Gunner with a series of punches. Robbie and Jesse use quick tags to distract the ref and score quick strikes and cheap shot opportunities.

BroMans hit a Hart attack double team spinebuster for three, and there’s new champs.

Winners and NEW TNA Tag Team Champions: Bro Mans

Mr. Olympia celebrates with Robbie and Jesse, but we don’t see much of it as we cut to footage from last night’s induction ceremony for Kurt Angle to TNA’s Hall of Fame. JB is in the ring, he says that now it is time to make Angle’s induction into the Hall of Fame. He says the man who will induct Angle into the Hall of Fame will be its first member, Sting.

Sting’s music hits, and the Icon makes his way out to a big pop from the crowd. Sting says the crowd is great and says it’s good to be in San Diego. Sting says entering the Hall of Fame is something he’ll never forget. Being acknowledged by the fans is something he’ll never forget. And now they’re inducting Kurt Angle who brought home Olympic Gold in 1996, and then transitioned into professional wrestling and skyrocketed to the top. Sting says there’s not any veteran of any era that doesn’t respect Angle. Sting says it’s also great the he’s a family man with a beautiful wife and children who are here tonight. Sting asks the fans to give it up for Kurt Angle.

Angle’s music hits, and the man of the hour makes his way to the ring with a big smile on his face to a great reaction from the fans. Sting hands the mic off to Angle and exits the ring, giving him his moment. Angle soaks in the chants before thanking the crowd. Angle says he’s been blessed with a lifetime full of amazing memories. Angle says he’d like to thank God, his family, and the fans. This induction means more to Angle than the fans will ever know. The fans chant ‘thank you Angle’, and Angle thanks them right back. Angle says the love and respect he’s had from the wrestlers and TNA management, he can’t describe in words as it’d do no justice. Sting says he shared it last night, but he’ll share it here tonight. Sting is lonesome in the Hall of Fame all by himself, so let’s make it official here and now. Sting hands Angle a present, and Angle pulls out a Hall of Fame watch, a gift for his induction. Angle looks at the watch and looks humbled.

The fans chant ‘you deserve it’. Angle says hearing what Sting said, and the response from the crowd makes him realize how important this ceremony is, and the responsibility that goes with it. Angle says he’s let himself, his family, and his peers down. Angle says he hasn’t lived up to his potential, and the standard that Sting has set for the Hall of Fame, which is why Angle is going to respectfully decline this Hall of Fame induction. Angle is going to set a new standard for the industry. What he’s done in the past is nothing to what he’ll accomplish and the future, and Angle will join Sting in the Hall of fame, when he’s worthy. Angle hugs Sting, and Sting hugs him back as Angle tries to fight back tears. We get another AJ Styles moment, and this time it’s AJ Styles beating Kurt Angle for the World Title in 2009 at No Surrender.

Dixie Carter is shown backstage taking a phone call. She says she’s got a great idea. Since tonight is Styles’ last night, she wants to see his merchandise discounted so she doesn’t have to see it anymore. EC3 comes in and Dixie says she’s picked the perfect opponent for him for tonight, and she’s excited to see him debut. After the Tale of the Tape, we’re ready for the next championship match of the evening.

Angle says he hasn’t live up to the standards of a Hall of Famer. That’s partially true, but what Roode said on Impact was true, that Roode is more deserving of an induction than Angle. Roode is in Angle’s head, because of that, and because he made Angle tap out.

At Bound for Glory, Roode is going to prove that he’s a better wrestler, and he’s Hall of Fame bound, and he’s going to make Angle tap out, because it pays to be Roode. This leads into a video package highlighting the events over the past few weeks that led up to this match.

A couple of weeks ago, AJ said Bully would have to kill him to beat him, and Bully was reminded of the lyrics of his favorite song, ‘do you know where you are, you’re in the jungle baby, you’re going to die’. Ray doesn’t want AJ to die, he wants far worse. He wants Styles to have to live with himself. To live with the fact that he lost to Ray. He wants him to get into the pickup truck, drive into his trailer park, and into the double-wide he calls a mansion. He wants him to look into his family’s eyes and see the disappointment. He wants AJ to live with it because it’ll kill him. He’s Bully Ray. Welcome to his jungle.

Styles comes back with a series of strikes and a huge dropkick. Ray is back up, and Styles trips Ray and goes right into the calf-killer. Garrett Bischoff is out, and he distracts AJ, causing him to break the hold. Ray has a hammer out of nowhere.

Garrett Bischoff gets backed out by Styles. When Styles gets back into the ring, Ray swings, and Styles kicks Ray’s arm. Ray drops the hammer and Styles picks it up, but when Styles tries to use it, Ray catches Styles with a chop. Ray chases Styles into the corner and hits him with another chop, then a clubbing blow to the back, and a chop big enough to drop Styles to the mat. Ray mocks Hulk Hogan, putting his hand to his ear. Ray takes Styles into the corner and hits another chop to the chest.

Ray slaps Styles, and Styles asks for another, taking a big chop and getting right back into it. Styles takes another chop, and tells Ray to give him another. Styles slaps Bully, telling him to slap him. Ray hits AJ with a big clothesline and a huge chop, but Styles just shrugs it off, even though he’s got giant welts and bruises on his chest. Styles hits Ray with a dropkick to the knee. Knux makes his way out from the back and stands in front of Styles. Styles is on the top and he jumps off, right into a big chokeslam from Knux. Ray pins Styles, but Styles kicks out at two.

Ray screams at Knux, then screams at Earl Hebner. Hebner gets in Ray’s face, and Ray charges AJ with a clothesline, but AJ ducks and Ray takes out Knux. AJ rolls up Ray for two. Ray scores with a quick punch, then launches AJ to the outside with a boot to the ribs. Ray slams AJ head first into the announcer’s table. Ray picks up the hammer from earlier and looks out at the crowd. Ray grabs AJ around the throat, but AJ scores with an enzugiri before Ray can use the hammer. AJ picks up the hammer and tosses it down. Styles slams Ray’s head into the announcer’s table, then he heads into the ring. Styles hits a giant springboard 450 to the outside through the table, but Ray moves!

Styles writhes in pain as the ref checks on him. Taz hands cutters to Ray, and Ray begins to take apart the ring. Ray pulls back part of the mat, then the padding underneath.

AJ struggles to get to his feet and back into the ring. Styles is grabbing at his ribs, using the apron to get to his feet. Bully stomps at AJ’s head. Ray calls to the back, but no one is coming. Ray doesn’t look too happy. Dixie Carter comes out, wringing her hands and looking unhappy.

Carter tells security to hand her a chair, and she gives it to Bully. Bully turns around into a springboard forearm from Styles that drives the chair into his face. Styles goes to the apron and hits the springboard 450. Styles goes for the cover, but Dixie tells Hebner not to count it. Hebner counts one, then shrugs Dixie off, but Ray kicks out before he can get to two.

Styles and Hebner argue, but Styles gets past it pretty quickly. Styles picks Ray up to his feet, but Ray backdrops him on the exposed boards. Ray stomps and chops at AJ’s chest. Ray heads to the middle rope, jumping off with a senton splash. Ray blows a kiss at Dixie, then goes for a pin. Styles kicks out at two.

Ray picks up the chair and blasts AJ across the back. Ray winds up and drives the chair down again across AJ’s back. Ray picks AJ up to his feet and goes for a powerbomb, but Styles lands on his feet. Styles connects with the Pele kick, and both men are down.

The finish:

Styles gets to his feet first, and he grabs the chair. Styles blasts Ray in the face with the chair, then sets him up. Styles climbs up in the corner and points at Dixie. Styles hits the Spiral tap, and gets the three count.

Winner and NEW TNA Heavyweight Champion: AJ Styles

The crowd goes nuts and Dixie Carter loses it, immediately pouting, as Styles celebrates his championship win.

Dixie pulls at her hair and Brooke cries over Bully while checking on him. Styles celebrates with his newly won title, while his old music plays over the PA system. Styles walks off into the crowd, running up into the stands and celebrating with the fans.

The show ends with Styles walking up the stairs into the fans.

    Hello, and welcome to the first TNA Bound For Glory Open Thread Party! Hopefully this will be the first in a long line of OTPs to come!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Welcome to WNW’s Bound For Glory Watch Party! Kendra and I will be your Hosts tonight, and the sparks are sure to fly in TNA’s biggest PPV of the year! Don’t forget, the Preshow Tag Team Gauntlet Match is on Spike TV tonight in a matter of moments!

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

      Alex is coming too! Don’t forget him!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        And Gesus too!

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

          Not sure if he will be here. We talked earlier, and I’m not sure if he’s up to dealing with wrestling after last night.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I guess I need to get the rope! I knew to pack it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Dixie just announced the No DQ stip for tonight’s main event yet again on the Preshow! Things look to be starting off with a bang!

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

      She’s gunning for AJ, so who do you think she will send in to try to cost him the match? I’m guessing that Knux and Garett will be coming out to cost Bully the match, but who will they be chasing off?

      The big question is, who will actually work for Dixie to get rid of AJ after all the crap she’s been spewing?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Her “nephew” EC3!

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

          Good call, but I don’t see it just being one guy. Who else?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Possibly EGO, but I don’t know.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And JPEY will be the 3rd team in the gauntlet, so we will start with Chavo and Hernandez vs. Bad Influence!

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

      I still think BI has this one.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Same here, but they could throw a surprise at us!

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

          Like that bag of muscles with Bromance?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep! TNA policy is to let the Guest’s team go over!

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

            Gag! Bromance is such a joke!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The Bro-Mans have the current Mr. Olympia in their corner tonight! I might have to change my Predict now!

  • John

    I hope TNA has a lot of fans that don’t like football because NBC is probably going to have one of the highest rated games in SNF history.

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

      The fact that it’s TNA, and not WWE, and that there’s a huge football game, all working against the PPV tonight.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I am running two TVs. I want to watch that game as well as BFG.

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

        I have my TV, netbook, and laptop all going.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Laptop and two tv’s going. Not going to miss football and wrestling.

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

            I’ll be flipping to the game after the PPV starts.

    • David Jr.

      Denver Broncos vs. Indianapolis Colts? Why could people possibly want to watch that game.

      • John

        Well it turned out to be the highest rated October game in the last 15 year so i guess a lot of people wanted to watch it.

        • David Jr.

          I made that comment sarcastically. Obviously, I knew it would draw great ratings. Peyton playing his former team. What Irsay said about manning. Broncos were undefeated going into the game.

  • Gesus Oliver

    There we go. Finally in the right place!

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

      Was wondering why I couldn’t find what you were talking about.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WHOA!! JPEY with the upset over Bad Influence!

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

      Yeah, so much for my pick on this, and the TTC!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, this one is shot for everyone, but I still have Beer Gunner for the titles.

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

          I went with BI because I think they need to shake up the TTC right now.

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

          I went with BI because I think they need to shake up the TTC right now.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, it is Beer Gunner’s first defense, but now I am really wondering what TNA is thinking.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, it is Beer Gunner’s first defense, but now I am really wondering what TNA is thinking.

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

            TNA, thinking?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Well, this one is shot for everyone, but I still have Beer Gunner for the titles.

  • Alex Gallardo

    The only reason the Bro Mans are going to be fighting for the tag belts at BFG is because they are associated with a celebrity.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! That seems to be TNA’s policy with them. Celebrities go over.

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

        Not just TNA, usually the E does that too.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Sad. I remember when they got two girls from the Jersey Shore on Impact. THEY DON’T DRAW TNA. The only celebrity I can think of that drew was Dennis Rodman .

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

          Rodman didn’t really draw either. And he made a jackass of himself in the ring.

          • Alex Gallardo

            When he made his debut on Nitro the rating beat Raw’s.

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

            I’m checking on that. Nitro was ahead for quite a while, then it flipped to RAW. So I’m checking the ratings numbers now.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Okay.

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

            Nitro was on top, or barely tied in the ratings from 6/17/96 to 4/13/98, so saying that Rodman was the reason that Nitro went over in the ratings because of Rodman is a bit off. Nitro was over in the ratings because nitro was over in the ratings at that point.

          • Alex Gallardo

            It was Karl Malone. I correct myself.

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

            Still not sure I agree as the night night after BaTB, his big PPV, Nitro lost in the ratings. I think you’re grasping at straws with that one. And I’m sure he’s not the ONLY one who drew.

          • Alex Gallardo

            He did have star power by him, but if fans didn’t like them they would do the same thing they did when Leno came and change the channel.

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

            Cyndi Lauper. Mr. T. Just to name two who absolutely drew bigger than Malone.

          • David Jr.

            If wasn’t for Cyndi Lauper and Mr. T, we wouldn’t even be here tonight.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Amen David!

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

            I agree David. They helped bring about the wrestling PPV!

          • David Jr.

            My Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays would be totally different if Wrestlemania had failed.

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

            I wonder what we’d be doing right now if not for that first WM and McMahon’s huge mortgage for the show…

          • Alex Gallardo

            How could I forget them? Well then that’s just another example of a celebrity who could draw

          • David Jr.

            Talking about celebs that draw, I thought i read somewhere that highest rated Smackdown was the one with Arnold.

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

            I’m going to have to check into that. There’s been a lot through the years, and I’d love to see who helped the most, and who (Arquette) dragged the company down the worst!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I correct myself. It was Karl Malone that beat Raw.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yep! That seems to be TNA’s policy with them. Celebrities go over.

  • Alex Gallardo

    The only reason the Bro Mans are going to be fighting for the tag belts at BFG is because they are associated with a celebrity.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait, Joseph was bleeding… Could we see the Monster come back out?

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

      Sadly, no.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m not just talking about the match here. We might just see him help AJ tonight!

  • Mike McCarthy

    First TNA pay-per-view for me, but the 6 match card isn’t getting me too excited

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Eric just saw a MONSTER!!!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Hopefully this time Abyss will stay for longer than one week.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I’m sure he will. I think we have hit the turning point for him.

        • Alex Gallardo

          I would love to see TNA do an alter ego story with Joseph and Abyss. Like what Mick Foley did.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            That is the endgame here, I think. It is what they have been teasing for awhile.

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

            I’m so excited for this, and have been since this all started.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            So many people have crapped on his storyline, but these are the same people who have clamored for longer burning stories. This has taken a year and a half to come around. People will surely love it once it pays off.

          • David Jr.

            I’ve loved the Abyss/Joseph Park storyline.

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

            I love that they haven’t pushed it too quickly, really let it develop and grow organically. Obviously Parks had a say in how it’s all gone down, and it’s been beautiful.

  • David Jr.

    Beer and Guns vs. Bro Mans, hhmm maybe I should order BFG.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Wait, you’re joking that THAT would sell you on the PPV, right?

      • David Jr.

        Yeah I am joking, while I’d love to order pay-per-views, a child care provider doesn’t make that much extra cash.

  • Gesus Oliver

    With Brooke, ODB, and Gail Kim in one match, what other active Knockouts are there on the roster?

    • David Jr.

      Velvet Sky and Lei’D Tapa. with Terrell with child.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Ahh yeah I forgot. so really only 5 active females?ugh… This division has fallen so bad.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          They have lost 8 roster members in the last year and a half. It’s really sad.

        • David Jr.

          A Division that at one time drawing the highest ratings for them.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lei’D Tapa and Velvet Sky. Taryn is out for Pregnancy.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Lei’D Tapa and Velvet Sky. Taryn is out for Pregnancy.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Bound For Glory is NOW!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      OORAH!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And we are starting with Ultimate X! This is going to be SICK!!!

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

      They almost always start with Ult X.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I know, as it has the special set up, but I still love it when we get it out the gate!

      • Alex Gallardo

        It’s good to start off the show with the X division. It gives the show a fast paced start.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Hardy’s gonna steal the match

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Joe’s gonna KILL him!

      • Mike McCarthy

        Hardy lives for matches like this

        • Jesse Sherwood

          And Joe has a huge chip on his shoulder. He needs this win more than anyone. Although, Hardy is sure to Swanton off of the Structure!

          • Mike McCarthy

            Exactly! Joe could wrestle the best match of his life but if Hardy does something like that, it’s the only thing people will be talking about

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

          But Hardy’s never been in an Ult X Match. I know it’s his type, but it is his first.

  • Gesus Oliver

    TNA starting with the token X Division match! Nothing wrong with that. Great way to get the crowd hyped. Seems to work every year!

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

    Ultimate X is a great way to start off the show! Could be a show stealer!

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

    Surprised BroMans won the match! Didn’t see that coming at all. Looks like I am already 0-2 for the PPV.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, that was a shock! I at least still have the TTM to balance it out. I am just disappointed that A’s didn’t get involved here, as my predict could have really shook things up!

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

      As am I Alex.

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

    Sure hope someone doesn’t win the title via climbing the ladder. It defeats the whole purpose.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Oh heck no! Doesn’t TNA remember it is against the rules to use a ladder in an Ultimate X Match?

    • Gesus Oliver

      Makes me miss Douglas Williams!

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

        *sigh* Doug Williams!

    • Alex Gallardo

      That would kill the whole point of the match as Alex said.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        When Team 3D did it, there was a massive controversy over it!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Are you kidding me? Why did they have Sabin win by using a ladder?

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

      I’m disgusted.

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

      Truly shocked… not in a good way!

      • Alex Gallardo

        That’s NOT how you open a show.

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

          That’s not how you book a PPV match, especially an Ult X Match!

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

          Agree! Lackluster match with a stupid ending. It gives real heat to Chris Sabin but also real heat against the writers. Not good.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Sabin was in the last match that ended with the Ladder finish! He knows it is against the rules! BAKA!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    That was a pretty disappointing end…

  • Gesus Oliver

    So much for that stealing the show…Let’s hope that idiotic booking isn’t a sign for the night to come..

  • Jesse Sherwood

    FAIL Sabin! Words can’t describe the anger I am feeling at TNA!

    • Alex Gallardo

      He’ll probably tear his ACL again so he won’t be champ for long.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Well that’s a terrible thing to say

        • Alex Gallardo

          He’s an injury prone wrestler.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            So is Cena, but we don’t make jokes about it.

          • Mike McCarthy

            So is Sin Cara, and we all make jokes about it.

          • Alex Gallardo

            How many quad jokes have the IWC made about Nash?

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

            We don’t fit into that realm most of the time, because we try to play nicer than most.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Still. I wasn’t making a joke about it.

          • Robbie

            Why did Kevin Nash cross the road?

            He couldn’t because he’s knee gave out.

            I’m here all night!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Those have just become outdated.

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

            That’s your one Robbie.

          • Gesus Oliver

            We didn’t Kneed to hear that Robbie…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Touché.

          • David Jr.

            When you work as much as these guys do, you’re bound to be injury prone.

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

            Except Dreamer and Kane. Those two are amazing in how they don’t break.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            What do you expect from Dreamer? He’s HARDCORE! And Kane is just awesome!

          • Gesus Oliver

            So you root for them to get hurt?

          • Alex Gallardo

            I wasn’t rooting for Chris to get hurt.

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

        That’s horrible! Not cool.

        • Alex Gallardo

          It wasn’t really a joke. He’s an injury prone wrestler.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        At this point, regardless of my feelings for him based on the reason he chose his ring name, I just want him to go away.

  • Robbie

    After being begged to join, here I am!

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

      You can tell the PPV is getting bad when Robbie’s appearance is a high point.

      • Robbie

        My appearance is always a high point :)

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

          In your dreams, and nowhere else!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I’m a bit happy! My Gesus Torture Buddy!!!

          • Robbie

            This is the excitement I bring!

          • Robbie

            It’s okay to admit that I’m the face of the LB/OTP etc. :)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            And whose name is at the top of the comment boards? Oh, that’s right, ME!!!

          • Robbie

            I’m the face of the RAW/WWE PPV Live Blogs/OTP then ;)

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yeah… The face of the Dog!

          • Robbie

            OH YOU DIDN’T KNOOOOOOOOOOW

          • Gesus Oliver

            Not the dog faced gremlin?

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

            Am I the only one who always thought he was cuter than his brother?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Well, until he met Chucky…

          • David Jr.

            One of the greastest bad segments in wrestling history.

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

            I missed that!

          • Gesus Oliver

            I liked him way more. I wouldn’t necessarily say more attractive…

    • Gesus Oliver

      You being here can’t get worse than that ending.

      • Robbie

        It’s TNA, what do you expect? #HEEL

  • Mike McCarthy

    LOL!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kaz for the win with the Brokeback Mountain joke!

    • Alex Gallardo

      I loved that movie and Kaz’s joke about it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The crowd is going wild for BI! Add them in!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I called a monster, and it is hunting Bad Influence!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ABYSS!!!

  • Alex Gallardo

    Classic Abyss music!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Abyss!!!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Crowd popping big for Abyss! Slow burn paying off! So I love it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Overlords, how I have missed Abyss!!!

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

    Would this showcase a full time return of Abyss though?

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

      I bet he will go back and forth a bit.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It sure looks like it! Joseph has realized the Monster inside of him!

  • Mike McCarthy

    More TNA logic; having Abyss return AT the biggest show of the year doesn’t increase buys for the show, if he was in the plans they should have announced him before hand

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This one wasn’t for buys, it was the reward the loyal fans who have stuck with this storyline for 2 years.

      • Mike McCarthy

        guess that’s why I didn’t understand it! lol

  • Gesus Oliver

    Joseph Parks has been advertised to a big indie show here in December. I wonder how that effects the show now.

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

      That could be very interesting! Maybe you will get both?

      • Gesus Oliver

        I sure hope so!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Gunner is a guy that I thought wouldn’t be as good today as he is. The dude is a beast, and I am proud a brother in arms has made it as far as he has.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That is a sexy back piece on Gunner!

    • Alex Gallardo

      You’re calling Gunner sexy?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Yes, I am! That tat is great!

        • Alex Gallardo

          Weird for a straight guy, but I like tattoos on a guy so I agree.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            We had the conversation once before, I have been on both sides of that fence. There are certain things that I still find attractive on guys, and that is one of them!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I thought you just experimented with them. I don’t think of those things during wrestling, but now I’m staring at Gunner’s back.

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

            Gunner is sexy.

          • Gesus Oliver

            I have said for a long time you can tell a well adjusted person by what they admit is attractive. There are people that are just good looking. I’m not attracted to men but I can admit who looks good. Same go for women.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Here’s an interesting fact for you all. A few years ago I went to a Royal Rumble party/Indie show. While I was in the bathroom Robbie E was in a urinal next to me where I proceeded to talk to him. Quite awkward but I did get a signed 8×10.

    • David Jr.

      Dude that’s breaking guy’s bathroom law, don’t talk when you’re at the urinal.

      • Robbie

        It’s Gesus….

      • Gesus Oliver

        I know! I just wanted an 8×10 before he disappeared again!

        • David Jr.

          Did you use the urinal right next to him? or was there one in between you?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Doesn’t matter! Gesus loses his man card!

          • David Jr.

            I agree.

          • Gesus Oliver

            It was two years ago, I honestly don’t remember. I technically I talked to him as he walked in sad nice match and while we were washing hands and he fixing his hair asked him about a autograph lol

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Jessie’s tan is nasty tonight! Very obvious it is a spray tan!

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

      Worse than Miz with the crappy fake tan all brown on the side of his hand from last week?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    When was the last time we saw the Eye of the Storm?

  • Alex Gallardo

    WHY?! That’s another bad decision tonight .

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Absolutely dreadful! I guess Storm and Gunner are going back to singles competition.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well I can’t really watch Gunner anymore without thinking about his sexy tats thanks to you.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          You’re welcome!

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

          What’s wrong with that?!?!?!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I try not to think about that stuff during wrestling. There are a lot of other places where I can see hot guys.

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

      Looks like it’s going to be the night for it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This, I can’t believe I am saying it, is one of the best tag matches in a while! Well, until the ending!

  • Gesus Oliver

    WHAT? WHAT? WHAT?! Let the riots begin…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Everyone is 0-3 tonight!

      • Gesus Oliver

        My fault for going with logical booking, not going with TNA booking. D’oh!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Same here!

  • Mike McCarthy

    no face paint?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not for this. This is something professional and personal, so I bet Sting wants to keep it that way.

    • BlazeKing

      Sting refers to the paint as a “war mask”. If there’s no battle, he’s not wearing it.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Before people get all huffy about a talking segment with HOF, remember all the stuff WWE does during Mania.

    • Robbie

      No I won’t!

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

      But WM is 4 hours long.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Shh! Kendra.

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

    After watching that tag team match, I do think BroMans could be a threat. We just need to forget they got beat-up, and got beat, by ODB.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      That was a great match, but after everything else associated with them, I just want to run in terror when they are on the screen.

  • ldb

    with a pay per view like this TNA deserves to die. I hate to see it, but dang this is terrible. Bro mans Really!?

    • Alex Gallardo

      No company deserves to go out of business. That’s 49+ people out of a job. If you don’t like TNA don’t watch it.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      So you want the industry and the 100+ when you add office personnel and crew to suffer just because of bad booking? That’s just wrong.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I’d rather watch terrible booking day in and out to see the likes of Joe and AJ wrestle on a weekly basis over 100+ be out of job.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Well this is going to be the only time I upvote you tonight.

        • Gesus Oliver

          Woot, I have drawing power!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Oh boy…..

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Alex, just roll with it man! He’s playing around.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I know that.

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

            I’m telling Rikki!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oh crap… Gesus is in trouble!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Please don’t! I’m already in the dog house for the double tv!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Shh… I will help with Rikki! Just distract her with kitten pictures!

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

            Get her a puppy!

          • Robbie

            *changing channel*

      • David Jr.

        I love the terrible booking as much as the great booking.

        • Alex Gallardo

          You must really like wrestling if you enjoy bad booking.

          • David Jr.

            I love WNW, but it’s not my favorite wrestling website, it’s the site dedicated in terrible booking. I own 3 wrestling books all about terrible booking and I loved reading them, I’ve reread all 3 like 4 times.

  • Robbie

    I’m not watching it tonight, but it sounds like TNA continues to make brilliant booking!

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

    Angle is all tearing up. He’s really feeling it.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The FEELS!!!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Is Angle reading his lines off of a card?

    • Mike McCarthy

      hand**

  • Alex Gallardo

    What the hell? Angle does deserve to be in the TNA Hall of Fame.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      He does, but I understand his reasoning. He wants to set a better standard before he goes in.

      • Alex Gallardo

        They’ve already had the ceremony and everything. Why couldn’t they pick someone else?

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

          Last night was the Angle Tribute Dinner, not the ceremony.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Still, they set everything up just to have Angle decline.

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

            He will go in when he’s ready, and I give him huge props for this.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I do too. It just seems like they could have waited until he was ready instead of having him decline.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            He didn’t realize just where he was when it was initially proposed. Sometimes it takes an outside force to realize just how bad of a position in life you are in.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Well then I guess I’m fine with it. It should be a big moment when he’s finally inducted.

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

        I see it, and understand it, especially being Angle, and with his Olympic past.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    What?! He declined because of his prior personal issues? He just got a ton of respect from me, but that means that there should be someone else awarded it this year. JJ for HOF!

    • Alex Gallardo

      Who the hell is writing this stuff?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Bischoff. He is head of Creative.

        • Alex Gallardo

          And I’m normally a fan of Bischoff. But this is awful.

      • Mike McCarthy

        monkeys with typewriters?

        • Alex Gallardo

          That describes the TNA creative team for the past months so I wouldn’t be surprised.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Bateman!!! oh i mean uhhh ummm errrr ETHAN

  • Gesus Oliver

    Looks like Ethan is all aboard the Dixie train!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Well, he is her “Nephew”! He likes riding that train!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I think I just threw up a little.

  • Mike McCarthy

    think this match could save the night

    • Jesse Sherwood

      At the rate it is going, it by the Overlords better!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Here’s another interesting fact. When I met ODB for my first time, I had ketchup on my face and no one told me…

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

      In the picture? I didn’t notice.

      • Gesus Oliver

        Yup! I didn’t notice until I got home and uploaded the pics. Corner of my mouth.

  • john

    Abyssss!!!!! So does this mean no joe parks? Also happy this wasn’t a 70 $ ppv

  • john

    Sorry was trying to sign in amd all not used to commenting. Bro man’s and sabin. Booking wow

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yeah, it has been rough on the booking side tonight, but we have seen some amazing action!

  • Mike McCarthy

    still a better boston crab than Randy Orton…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ref Bump!

  • john

    So with aj videos I think he is gonna win. Just like sabin at dx

  • Alex Gallardo

    Le’di Tapa interference coming.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Damnit Alex! You summoned her!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I didn’t want her there.

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

      Obvious, but dang!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    And Kim was on top of Brooke, so she will be champ!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I think she just killed Brooke…..

  • Gesus Oliver

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I finally got a point!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      No, you picked Brooke!

      • Gesus Oliver

        Crap did I?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yes!

          • Gesus Oliver

            Pretty sure I picked Kim. This is worse than Kendra/Mickie controversy!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Looking at FB now. You said Brooke.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Auto-Correct Screwed me.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Auto-Correct Screwed me.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Looking at FB now. You said Brooke.

      • Robbie

        Looooooooooooooooooooooooooooool! SUCK IT GESUS

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

          I’m with Robbie! Suck that and Mickie James, Gesus!

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

          I’m with Robbie! Suck that and Mickie James, Gesus!

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

          I’m with Robbie! Suck that and Mickie James, Gesus!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Kim vs. The Monster part 2? Nope, it’s her insurance!

  • Alex Gallardo

    So we’re seeing a Tapa/Gail tag team. Just like Tamina and AJ.

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

    I actually like when I get the predictions wrong because it makes the PPV more surprising. Sadly, I based my predictions on logic and common sense.

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s kinda like Vince Russo booking, you don’t expect it, but it isn’t a good thing.

    • Alex Gallardo

      It’s kinda like Vince Russo booking, you don’t expect it, but it isn’t a good thing.

  • Mike McCarthy

    I thought that was the best match so far

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Everyone is 0-4 tonight! WTH is happening?!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Everyone is 0-4 tonight! WTH is happening?!

    • Mike McCarthy

      maybe Dixie reads the website….

    • Mike McCarthy

      maybe Dixie reads the website….

    • Gesus Oliver

      I picked Kim.

    • Gesus Oliver

      I picked Kim.

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

        Here we go again!

    • Robbie

      I’m not :)

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You never posted, so you don’t count!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You never posted, so you don’t count!

        • Gesus Oliver

          You mean, He just doesn’t count?

    • Robbie

      I’m not :)

    • David Jr.

      I picked Kim to win, the only problem is the only one who knows is my twin.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And I will correct myself. TNANews.com writer Sean Prim predicted both Kim and Sabin!

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

    It will only be a matter of time till Tapa turns on Gail.

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

      They have to be setting up for what they hope is another Kim vs the monster.

      • Gesus Oliver

        I think it’s a nice way to push the knockouts division without the focus on the title for a few months until they can get more depth in the roster.

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

    It will only be a matter of time till Tapa turns on Gail.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Well that was a production error.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Are the rumors true that Ethan Carter’s match is for a new title?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope not. That is not the way to debut him. But he does have a “Tough Challenge” in his match tonight.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I hope not. That is not the way to debut him. But he does have a “Tough Challenge” in his match tonight.

      • Mike McCarthy

        There’s some rumors of it being for a European championship

    • David Jr.

      The I want to ride on the Dixie Train Title or I wish I was in Dixie Land Title?
      Wait it’s suppose to be her nephew, forget that.

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

      Excuse my language, but I sure as shit hope not! The last time they brought in a new title is was at the hands of Booker T, and it went through too many changes before becoming the TV Title and then fading away. The last thing TNA needs right now is another strap!

      • Gesus Oliver

        To be fair I the newest title brought into TNA was the Knockouts Tag Titles.

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

          You’re right, I forgot about that, but you can see how that’s worked out as well! And what about Hardy’s specialty belt?

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

          You’re right, I forgot about that, but you can see how that’s worked out as well! And what about Hardy’s specialty belt?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            EWWW!!!

          • Alex Gallardo

            Most people don’t want to remember that title.

      • David Jr.

        Yeah tell all those people who lost their jobs this year and those who had to take a pay cut, why they are spending money on making a new title. So it would make no sense.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Yeah, doesn’t seem likely since Abyss could bring back the TV Title since he returned tonight

  • Gesus Oliver

    Kurt’s age is showing in his face a lot but he looks to be in the best shape of his career.

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

      Angle came back jacked!

      • David Jr.

        Off topic but how was Mr. USA?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Mr. Olympia? He was stupid muscular!

          • David Jr.

            No, I’m talking about Tony Atlas.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Ah, I’m an idiot! Doh!

          • Gesus Oliver

            I second that!

          • Robbie

            Thirded

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

            He was amazing! I’m working on a couple articles, but I have the coolest picture of him napping in the ring as they were building it around him. He’s a lot of fun to be around, and I’ve been around him enough now that I’m starting to be one of the gang.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Exercise is great help with drug/alcohol rehab

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Agreed. Taz’s commentary is awful!

  • Mike McCarthy

    and 3mb takes forever to make a song………..that is all Mr. Jinder Mahal fan

      I feel obligated to remind you to play nice in the chat. That being said, sick burn! I am laughing pretty good.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I know it would be torture, but I’d pay to hear it. I bought Hoeski!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Brian Hebner is just as blind as Earl!!!

  • Alex Gallardo

    What the hell does that have to do with TNA or BFG?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Trolling comment. Ignore them and I’ll handle them.

      • Alex Gallardo

        Okay.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Has Kurt ever hit that moonsault?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Not since 2009.

  • Robbie

    #DontHinderJinder

  • Gesus Oliver

    That cross face is probably the second most painful move I’ve had applied to me. First being Figure Four.

    • Mike McCarthy

      no way, I’d rather be punched in the face than be put in a good arm bar

      • Gesus Oliver

        What?

        • Mike McCarthy

          not sure what’s confusing you, arm bar is another way to say cross arm breaker

          • Mike McCarthy

            if that doesn’t help let me know

          • Gesus Oliver

            I haven’t heard it called an arm bar… I can take a punch to the face but having my neck wrenched back like that killed.

          • Robbie

            Fly over here and I’ll try

          • Mike McCarthy

            they call it an arm bar in UFC, and my friend broke my arm with one, worst pain i’ve ever felt

          • Robbie

            You shouldn’t be trying that at home

          • Mike McCarthy

            LOL

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Most people say otherwise, but a deep Boston Crab or an improperly positioned one hurts even worse then those!

      • Gesus Oliver

        I haven’t been put into a boston crab that was any good. I was able to get out of them Figure four and the other I was stuck!

  • Mike McCarthy

    everyone on this thread?

    • Alex Gallardo

      As Jesse said it’s best we ignore him because he’s a troll.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I bought this one, and have bought around 30 since 2006.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Aren’t we supposed to ignore him?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        PM.

        • Alex Gallardo

          What the hell does that mean?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I sent you a personal message via FB.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Hebner just helped Roode!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I really thought they were going with a WM 13 Bret v Austin ending…

  • Gesus Oliver

    I really thought they were going with a WM 13 Bret v Austin ending…

  • Mike McCarthy

    ……wait what

  • Alex Gallardo

    Bobby won!? That’s not how Angle should have returned. Hopefully he’ll get revenge.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Angle said he was going to be better than ever before, then gets beat?

  • Mike McCarthy

    maybe they’re doing some sort of drug/alcohol storyline? Angle wrestled under the influence?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      They by the Overlords better not. That’s just disrespectful.

      • Mike McCarthy

        Not saying that’s what I want them to do, but it wouldn’t be the first disrespectful storyline, remember Heyman/Punk interrupting Lawler’s first post-heart attack return?

      • Mike McCarthy

    Angle’s hurt looks like. Looks legit too.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Uh oh, maybe Kurt got hurt for real. I hope he’s okay or that it’s a work .

  • Jesse Sherwood

    He’s moving. Looks like he may have just been looped. Concussion most likely.

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

    I don’t understand why Brian Hebner didn’t check on Kurt until he sat there to wait to raise Roode’s hand.

  • Alex Gallardo

    That’s another production error tonight, but now I think this was a work.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Seeing his movements, he’s concussed. Look at his eyes.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I hope Kurt’s okay. He’s already come over so much.

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

      He absolutely doesn’t look right.

    ….i need food, hopefully i don’t miss anything good

    “Life by the nuts” Classy Taz…

  • Alex Gallardo

    A jobber match at BFG? The biggest show in TNA? What the hell TNA?!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This could have waited until Impact. This is bad!

      • Alex Gallardo

        I’m normally a TNA mark for BFG, but this is ridiculous. The booking on this show is awful.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Who the heck booked Guy Landau?

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

    At first glance, I thought this Norv was Ion!

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

      Same! Wouldn’t have made sense knowing Ion’s history (aka Jesse Sorenson).

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

        I just want to see Ion back. I know what he’s been going through with his health, and seeing him back would mean he’s better.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    TNA just turned a hot crowd against them!

    • Gesus Oliver

      what do you expect from a home town hero.

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

    I will give my prediction! Ethan Carter III wins!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A bit late Alex, the match is already over!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      A bit late Alex, the match is already over!

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

        Actually posted it right before it ended. Should have did it at the start of the match. Easy way to finally get a 1 in the right column.

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sorry, but I think KB would agree it can’t count! We are all in the same prediction boat! This is the match that will sink people or help them!

          • David Jr.

            Does the winner get a chicken dinner?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Nope, the ability to determine fate itself…

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

            I actually saw it well before the match ended, and I’d give everyone a point for this, because it’s so bloody obvious!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yay!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Sorry, but I think KB would agree it can’t count! We are all in the same prediction boat! This is the match that will sink people or help them!

  • Mike McCarthy

    I’m back…..with bacon, what’d i miss?

    • Gesus Oliver

      Nothing at all.

      • Mike McCarthy

        yippee

    • Alex Gallardo

      Just more awful booking from TNA.

    • David Jr.

      now i need bacon

    • David Jr.

      now i need bacon

  • Mike McCarthy

    so I guess Ethan’s using Dean Ambrose’s finisher….

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, despite the jobber squash, EC3 looks good! Glad he is getting a chance in TNA.

    • Alex Gallardo

      They should have had him fight someone legit fight him. I would be a little happier then.

        Dixie is building her ‘nephew’ as Goldberg.

        • Alex Gallardo

          LOL I hope not.

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

            At least I didn’t say she’s building him as Ryback!

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

            At least I didn’t say she’s building him as Ryback!

          • Alex Gallardo

            He couldn’t pull off Ryback either.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            No, he’s better than that!

          • Alex Gallardo

            I like him, but I don’t hear the crowd chanting his name.

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

            Too early, and he’s a heel, and unknown by the TNA fans. He needs time.

          • Alex Gallardo

            I’ll give him that. I like how they recreated him compared to what he was dong in WWE.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            EC3 has a plethora of talent. WWE really misused him.

          • Alex Gallardo

            They misuse a lot of people.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Very true. But that happens when you have a ton of talent and refuse to give time to anyone other than 15-20 people.

          • Mike McCarthy

            Ryback couldn’t pull off Ethan Carter III

          • Alex Gallardo

            He couldn’t pull off Ryback either.

        • Alex Gallardo

          LOL I hope not.

  • Alex Gallardo

    This match will pick up the show! I’ve been looking forward to this since it was announced! Magnus will be a main event player after this.

  • Alex Gallardo

    This match will pick up the show! I’ve been looking forward to this since it was announced! Magnus will be a main event player after this.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe I am alone in this, but he already is. This is just going to make it to where there is no doubt in anyone’s minds that he should be TNA World Champion.

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

        Agreed.

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

        Agreed.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe I am alone in this, but he already is. This is just going to make it to where there is no doubt in anyone’s minds that he should be TNA World Champion.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Magnus just made me a TNA mark again.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Magnus just made me a TNA mark again.

  • Gesus Oliver

    I am really loving Stings shirt.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Same here! I want one!

      • Gesus Oliver

        I can’t wait for TNA to go out of business so I can buy it for dirt cheap. I can’t believe how often I’ve heard that lately. I might be getting it for a black friday special.

        • Alex Gallardo

          What would you do with the wrestlers? Have them do your chores? I’d hope you’d give them a job at least.

          • Gesus Oliver

            Reread it again bucko

        • Gesus Oliver

          I forgot quotation marks.

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

            I read it as you meant it, but I’m the only one.

          • Gesus Oliver

            thank you!

          • Mike McCarthy

            make that two

          • Robbie

            Make that three

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Retracted, as I realized what you meant afterwards.

        • Robbie

          Can’t believe you would say something like that

          • Gesus Oliver

            me neither, Black Friday special? How terrible.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, yet another production blip!

    • Gesus Oliver

      what was it now?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Green screen for about 5 seconds.

    • Alex Gallardo

      Is everything ran by monkeys over there?

  • guest

    They’ve written this as Flair/Sting, with Sting as Flair!

  • Mike McCarthy

    …..what

  • Alex Gallardo

    At least Magnus got put over. I think the match could have been better though.

    • guest

      agreed. Slow paced, no crowd buy-in.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Am I the only one that did’t like this match?

    • Gesus Oliver

      Nope!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Nope!

      • Mike McCarthy

        The whole thing was just boring…

        • Gesus Oliver

          Sting doesn’t have much left. I know this sounds like beating a dead horse but I think they should let sting go Rest up and train for his match against Taker. then ride off into the sunset.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I thought it could have been better. But I’m just glad that Magnus is over and now is a legit main event player.

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

      Too short, and didn’t feel like it was enough.

  • BlazeKing

    I sense a Magnus heel moment coming…

    • Jesse Sherwood

      With the gloating and the cocky attitude at the end, that is the only way they could be going.

    • guest

      They completely set up the Magnus heel turn… and burned the entire IWC. Oh, how clever.

    • guest

      They completely set up the Magnus heel turn… and burned the entire IWC. Oh, how clever.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    This match wasn’t as good as I expected. But the real story is Magnus’ gloating. He’s being disrespectful.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Magnus should not be a heel. He can draw international numbers for TNA as a babyface.

    • Mike McCarthy

      Really good point

      • Alex Gallardo

        Thank you.

        • David Jr.

          He could be a heel in USA and a face in Europe kind of like, Bret Hart circa 1997.

          • Alex Gallardo

            Maybe they could take that route, but I think Magus would fit better and draw more as a face.

          • BlazeKing

            That’s actually happened already! It’s why he’s at this point now. He could easily switch over to a heel and still keep the European crowds on his side.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Sunday Night Football Update: Colts 26 Broncos 14 at Halftime

    • Gesus Oliver

      That last drive was sick. Mike are you on FB?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Unfortunately no

        • Gesus Oliver

          Sadness. You’re missing my double TV set up lol

          • Mike McCarthy

            Dang! That actually sounds cool

    • Keith Hanley

      And the BFG viewership drops

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Keith, he posts the scores for us throughout the night for people that are interested in the NFL.

        • Keith Hanley

          I was just joking, I won’t get BFG over here until next week so watching NFL and getting results off this

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Sorry, but we have had problems with trolls tonight. I had to check to make sure you were cool!

      • David Jr.

        I doubt anyone who purchased BFG is going to change the channel, this isn’t Impact.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well, with the freebie EC3 point, I’m 1-6 tonight. Blech!

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

      2-6!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        You mean 2-5? We have only had 7 matches tonight!

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

          You said 1-6…

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yes, as I called Sting to win, not Magnus. My only point is the EC3 one!

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

            Ahh! I see my mishap!

    • Gesus Oliver

      What am I?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        2-5

      • Jesse Sherwood

        2-5

        • Gesus Oliver

          What match am I short?

          • Gesus Oliver

            opps! I miss counted. Does that include Kim?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            We’ve had 7 matches so far. This is #8.

  • Mike McCarthy

    Just reminded me, my Mother ran into Buff Bagwell at the supermarket…..thought that was cool

    • David Jr.

      Was Judy there with him on a forklift?

      • Mike McCarthy

        Lol don’t think so!

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

      I have to admit that the last time I ran into Buff, I blew him off at the urging of a wrestler friend.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I get sick of everyone saying AJ lives in a double wide trailer. We saw his house 7 months ago in the videos before his return, and it was huge!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Shh!

  • Gesus Oliver

    I really like the BFG series. It gives some meaning to house shows throughout the summer. It’s a shame TNA had to blow it all up in the end. I always like little gimmicks like that to get the talent motivated and the crowd interested.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I’ve got my P1 Gloves one and am ready for this sure to be instant classic of a match!

    • Gesus Oliver

      Christian Cage?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    I love AJ’s gear tonight! The Pink Ribbon and boots are great!

  • Gesus Oliver

    An interesting methodical start to this match.

  • Keith Hanley

    Right so I’m from Ireland and TNA is a week behind on tv here so BFG won’t be on till Thursday(for free as are all TNA PPV and 1/3 of WWE), but in the people opinion is it worth a watch?

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

      Angle vs Roode is worth the time, otherwise, not so much. Actually, Tag wasn’t bad, and until the end, Knockouts wasn’t horrid.

    • Mike McCarthy

      A lot of good in-ring but a lot of bad finishes

    • Jesse Sherwood

      The in ring action, other than the Ultimate X match and EC3 squash is worth it. Story wise, not so much.

    • Jesse Sherwood

    • Keith Hanley

      Thanks folks

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No problem Keith!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        No problem Keith!

  • Mike McCarthy

    Right when the match started my feed went out…

  • Alex Gallardo

    How many production errors will we have tonight?

    • Gesus Oliver

      two more I get a toaster.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        I have a cheese grater!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      So I wasn’t alone there. The grey screen?

      • Alex Gallardo

        Yup.

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

        I guess I’m glad my feed is glitchy, I haven’t seen any of those.

  • Gesus Oliver

    That hammer is such a good metaphor of WWE and TNA. WWE has a sledge Hammer and TNA has a ball peen hammer.

  • BlazeKing

    i’m definitely not seeing any of these errors…

    • guest

      Me either.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe it is a US provider issue.

  • Mike McCarthy

    holy crap

  • Gesus Oliver

    I was just thinking about the production errors and was thinking, We haven’t had any wide shots of this arena. I wonder how poor their attendance is.

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

      They were talking in the pre-show about fans still coming in, so I figured they were pulling people off the street to fill seats.

      • Gesus Oliver

        That isn’t surprising.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OMFG!!!! That Springboard!

  • Alex Gallardo

    SICK bump by Styles.

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

    Simply put, AJ is amazing!

  • BlazeKing

    Hoooooly Shizz!!!!

  • BlazeKing

    A foot stomp gets a pop from the crowd…. Classic!

  • Mike McCarthy

    hate to detract from this great match…but sunday night football just aired a trailer for Anchorman 2…….I don’t remember the last time I was so happy

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

      I saw something for it the other day. My daughter keeps telling me I need to see the first one. Her first car’s name was Ron Burgundy.

      • Mike McCarthy

        hahah, it’s a classic!!!

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

          It was a 199? Buick LeSabre. Big boat of a car, and it was burgundy, so it made sense.

          • David Jr.

            My first car i called the Toot Toot Chugga Chugga Big Red Car.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Here comes the Dixie Train!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wait are we seeing a double turn? Maybe not. Dang Dixie!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    OW! On the exposed boards!

  • Gesus Oliver

    That drop just sent a flashback to me of British bulldog ouch!

  • Gesus Oliver

    They’re cutting it close yikes!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      We still have 10 minutes!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Pele!

  • Mike Love

    CHAIR SHOT TO THE HEAD!?

    • Gesus Oliver

      It was protected.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      This isn’t WWE, they aren’t banned in TNA!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Spiral Tap!!! And AJ Wins!!!!!!

  • Alex Gallardo

    I was expecting an appearance from Mr. Anderson and that was a pretty weird way for Styles to win by.

    • guest

      so where is everyone Bully was talking to???

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

        Good question. I expected Knux and Garett to “help” Bully, and end up making things worse for him. I guess they didn’t want to pay them the PPV bonus.

        • guest

          “everybody thought you were dead, and you never thought you’d trust me again…” Who were those guys? filmed the segment, couldn’t pay the talent??

  • Alex Gallardo

    Overall I wasn’t a big fan of this show, the booking was pretty awful.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Booking was rough, but at least it ended on a high point!

  • Luke

    Looks like Hogan is headed to WWE again

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’d be happy to see him there again.

    • Alex Gallardo

      I’d be happy to see him there again.

  • Alex Gallardo

    Well I’ll see you guys tomorrow, but good night for now!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Night Alex!

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

      Goodnight!

  • Mike McCarthy

    See everybody tomorrow for Raw!

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

      Night!

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

      Night!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Later Mike!

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    Congratulations to the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles. Well Deserved Victory There. Its been a long time coming.

  • Gesus Oliver

    Let’s take note, first post Hogan ppv Styles becomes champ! I love it.

  • Navin T. Ramkissoon

    See You Guys Tomorrow Night On Raw. Take Care.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Take care Navin!

  • Gesus Oliver

    Well everyone that’s TNA Bound For Glory. I hope you had a good time. Don’t forget to tip your waitresses and harass the writhers. We will see you tomorrow for Monday Night Raw.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Later Gesus!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Thanks to everyone for making our first TNA PPV Open Thread Watch Party a huge success! Have a good night, and I will see you tomorrow night for the Raw Watch Party!

  • Lazyboy

    Aj leaving off to the crowd sounds like cm punk on summerslam lmaooo

  • LBP365

    Well the ppv wasn’t the old WCW standards but I thought it was good Bringing In a cheap new guy liked, Gail Kim was a surprise that make sense now she can b a face again, liked. I think Rhoode, AJ, LOCKDOWN leads to James Storm, Rhoode next BGF. Now u made a card that made sense done it in a cheap way next move build on it Hogan gone(thank u) now resign Ken and bring in Shelton B and keep going with a solid good storyline don’t over think, and 2 show from the impact zone and 1 from the road will also help cut cost and keep u moving.
