TNA Lockdown Results
Sunday, March 9, 2014
From the BankUnited Center in Miami, Florida
Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
The show opens with footage of Magnus and Samoa Joe arriving to the arena. Taz tells Magnus to be careful because Joe is coming for him. This leads into a video package highlighting the theme of tonight's show, Cage Matches, along with a look at Team MVP vs. Team Dixie, and a couple of the other big matches.
Mike Tenay welcomes us to the show, no pyro, and he hypes the return of the 'all steel cage' show.
Christy Hemme is in the ring, and she introduces Bad Influence, who come down to the ring in karate gi's and masks to mock the Great Muta.
Chris Sabin is out next, and he gives high fives to Daniels and Kaz on his way into the ring.
Sanada is out first, followed shortly by Yasu. Finally, the big man, Great Muta, makes his way out to the ring to a nice reception from the crowd.
6-man Interpromotional Tag Team Match
The Great Muta, Sanada & Yasu vs. Bad Influence & Chris Sabin
This one looks like it will have traditional tagging, though for how long, who knows. Sabin and Sanada kick things off for their respective teams. Sabin offers his hand, but Sanada doesn't shake. We get a lock up, and Sabin begins working over the arm. Sanada works his way out of a hold, flipping around, and reversing things. Sabin pokes the eye, and Sanada falls to a shoulder block. Sanada tries for a hip toss, but Sabin blocks it, so Sanada goes right into an abdominal stretch. Sanada rolls Sabin around the ring and gets a quick two count before hitting an arm drag and clamping down on Sabin's arm. Sabin backs Sanada into the corner and buries his shoulder in Sanada's midsection, but he runs into a big boot and a flying forearm from the second rope. Yasu and Kaz tag in, and both men trade shoulder blocks, wither neither budging. Kaz connects with a clothesline, and whips Yasu across the ring, but misses a back splash, and eats a hip toss from Yasu. Yasu clamps on a headlock, and tags in Muta to a great pop. Muta puts Kaz down to the mat and drops a quick elbow before locking in an STF. Daniels breaks things up, but catches a dropkick for his troubles. Muta spits out some green mist to a huge pop.
Yasu is back in and he slams Kaz, then drops an elbow for a two count. Kaz is able to whip Yasu into the corner, but Yasu gets a boot up. Daniels distracts Yasu and allows Kaz to knock Yasu back to the mat. Kaz mounts Yasu with a series of punches. Daniels tags in and we get some triple team work from BI and Sabin that leads to a near fall. Sabin tags back in and drops a fist across Yasu's face. Sabin hits a clothesline in the corner and chokes Yasu with his boot. Sabin mocks Muta, and hits a backslide on Yasu, that Kaz follows up with a double springboard leg drop. Daniels is in and there's a bit of double team work from BI, including a lionsault from Daniels for two.
Daniels traps Yasu in a rear chin lock, and Yasu struggles to get to the ropes. Yasu stands, and fights out of the hold, then catches all of the heels with big forearms, but Daniels backs him up into the hostile corner. More triple team work from Sabin and Bad Influence with all members hitting splashing in the corner, and a triple dropkick, but it only keeps Yasu down for two. Kaz slams Yasu to the mat, and heads up to the top rope. Kaz leaps, but misses a top rope leg drop. Daniels and Sanada make the tag. Sanada connects with a couple of elbows, and a hurricanrana. Sabin is in to break things up, but Sanada hits a double dropkick on Daniels and Sabin, then one for Kaz. Sanada connects with a TKO on Daniels, but it's only good for two. Kaz and Sabin double team Sanada, and Daniels and Kaz connect with a high-low for another two count.
Sanada turns a double team move around, and Muta tags in. A couple of low dropkicks to Daniels' knee are followed up by a dragon screw for all the heels. Muta locks in a knee bar, but it's broken up by Sabin and Kaz. Muta fights off Sabin and hits Kaz with the mist. Things are breaking down as Sanada hits an ace crusher. Sanada tags in, Muta hits the shining wizard on Daniels, and Sanada hits a moonsault for three.
Winners: Yasu, Sanada, and The Great Muta
Taz and Tenay begin to discuss Lethal Lockdown, saying the entire future of TNA rides on this match. Taz disregards Tenay's comments and begins talking about Joe vs. Magnus. Taz says he thinks the champion is in trouble tonight. They're interrupted by Rockstar Spud's music.
Spud comes out in a pretty amazing looking blue and white checkered suit. Spud has a mic in hand and paces around the ring a bit before waiting for his music to finish. Spud says as your chief of staff, he's here to present the Duchess of the dolphins. Royal highness of the hurricanes, and the mistress of Miami, Florida. His queen, and yours, Madame Dixie Carter. Dixie comes out to a good bit of heat from the crowd.
Dixie thanks the fans and says she knows how excited they are to see them, and how in awe they are to be in real royal presence, not like King James. Dixie says he shouldn't be able to bestow that title on himself, but she's earned the title of queen. Dixie says she's proved herself, but feel that some still doubt her. Dixie says some of the fans look like they've been hit by a hurricane. She asks if they care how they look. Dixie says she's here to tell the fans to buckle up, because tonight she'll turn the arena upside down. She tells MVP that he's pushed her, and forced her to do something that he'll never anticipate. Nobody is going to take any part of her company from her. She's the one who invested, she built it up to be the international success that it is. She's the one who went to New York to make sure she's got an insurance card in her back pocket that will ensure her team's win tonight. And as far as Jeff Hardy is concerned, when he walked out on the company and all of his fans, and more importantly, her, he breached his contract. Dixie has made sure every entrance point to the arena is covered with extra security. And if Hardy tries to get into the building, she'll have him kicked out faster than the coeds on this SEC wannabe campus walk out. Dixie tells the fans to enjoy the rest of the show.
JB is backstage with Velvet Sky. Velvet says she's overwhelmed by the fans, and she encourages fans to ask her questions over Facebook. JB walks over to Eric Young, who's tweeting. Young says Lethal Lockdown is one of the most important matches in TNA history. One thing he knows for sure is that everything changes after tonight. JB throws it to a video package that highlights some of the recent history between Mr. Anderson and Samuel Shaw.
