TNA Lockdown Results (3/9/14) - Who Is In Control?

Samuel Shaw is the first man to make it out, and he gets next to no reaction from the crowd. Interesting to note, JB is stepping in on announcing duties for this match, replacing Christy Hemme. Shaw looks around for Christy, and he's disappointed to find out she isn't ringside. He asks for a mic.

Shaw sticks the mic in his pocket, and climbs to the top of the cage. He straddles the cage and pulls out the mic. Shaw asks where Christy is. He says someone's not keeping it professional. Shaw says if Hemme doesn't get out here now, he's going to professionally end it all. Shaw stands on the cage, but he's interrupted by Mr. Anderson's music.

Anderson tells Shaw to hang on a second. He says he's got something much more important-er (his words, not mine). Anderson calls down the mic, and does his introduction, much to the fan's delight. Anderson says Shaw doesn't want to jump off the cage, it's not high enough. The fans want Shaw to jump. Anderson says he'll break an ankle and look like more of a goof than he already does. Anderson says he needs at least 4 or 5 stories. He says he should come down, let Anderson beat him up a little bit, and he'll give him a ride wherever he wants to go. He calls Shaw a 'creepy bastard' before heading down to the ring.

Steel Cage Match
Mr. Anderson vs. Samuel Shaw

Anderson climbs into the cage, and Shaw begins to climb down into the ring. The bell rings, and Shaw stands on the top rope. Shaw puts the mic down, and backs away from Anderson. Anderson stalks Shaw around the ring. Anderson catches a kick from Shaw, and hits a big clothesline. Shaw begs off while Anderson calls him a weirdo. Hemme walks down the ramp toward the ring. Shaw blocks a kick, but eats a right hand from Anderson. Anderson beats on Shaw in the corner, whipping him across the ring hard and following in with a clothesline. Anderson goes for another, but runs right into a big boot. Shaw climbs the ropes, but Anderson pulls him down and sets up for the mic check. Shaw fights it off, but Anderson comes up with a gut wrench suplex.

Shaw connects with a shot to the throat, and stomps on Anderson in the corner. Shaw chokes Anderson a bit, then crosses the ring to begin the climb again. Shaw makes it to the top of the cage, but Anderson is able to cut him off. Shaw kicks at him, but Anderson pulls him down to the ropes. Shaw scores with a series of rights, then slams Anderson's head into the cage wall a couple of times. A couple more right hands rock Anderson and send him crashing back to the mat. 'CM Punk' chant from the crowd. Shaw gets back to the top of the cage again, but Anderson gets up and drags him back down. Anderson slams Shaw's face into the cage wall, but Shaw blocks a third attempt with a couple of back elbows. Anderson is able to belly to back suplex Shaw from the top rope back down to the mat.

Anderson and Shaw struggle back to their knees, where Shaw throws Anderson face first into the cage wall. Shaw gets up to his feet, then he spots Christy, waving to her. Shaw heads to the cage door, and Hebner works on the lock. Anderson sends Shaw into the cage door, pushing it into Hebner and sending Hebner flying. Anderson connects with the mic check in the middle of the ring.

Anderson picks Shaw up to his feet and hits another mic check, sending Shaw face first into the middle turnbuckle. Anderson picks Shaw's head up and lets it drop to the mat a couple of times, asking Hemme if she's happy with that. Anderson's gum falls out of his mouth, and he sticks it in Shaw's ear. Anderson climbs up the cage while Hemme cheers. Shaw grabs Hemme's arm through the cage. Anderson hits the floor, but Shaw pulls Hemme into the cage through the opening for cameras. Anderson tries to climb back in, but Shaw knocks him to the floor. Hemme backs away from Shaw, but eventually slaps him across the face. Anderson is able to make it back into the ring, using the referee's key and opening the door, and he drops Shaw with a trio of well-placed right hands. Anderson gets Hemme out of the cage, but gets a low blow from Shaw. Shaw is able to trap Anderson in a choke hold, and Anderson begins fading.

Anderson drops to the mat while Shaw shushes him. Shaw breaks the hold and climbs out of the ring, walking to the floor. Hebner calls for the bell.

Winner: Samuel Shaw

BroMans are shown backstage with Bobby Roode. Roode asks where Aries is. Aries comes in and asks about Dixie's insurance policy, he says he's all the insurance Dixie needs. Roode says he doesn't know what it is, but this team doesn't need an insurance policy. Aries says he's looking for 5% from Roode. Roode says he'll give Aries 2%, BroMans 2%, and he'll keep 6% for himself. Roode tells his team not to let him down. Robbie says they're a team, but Roode walks away unhappily.

We get a recap of ECIII attacking Kurt Angle and putting him out of action, unable to compete tonight.

ECIII makes his way out to the ring, and does not get much of a reaction out of the fans at all.

Carter asks for a mic. He says he had a dream. When he was a young wrestler, he always had a dream to face the best. In 1996, Angle won an Olympic gold medal. He's the only man to transition that way into Pro Wrestling. Angle is one of the greatest of all time, but so is ECIII. He is wrestling. The crowd says he can't wrestle, but he disagrees. He's very good. He proved he's very good by twice taking out Angle's knee with a wrestling move. ECIII finds it interesting that Angle scheduled a surgery, depriving him of his dream match, and a chance to prove himself as the new face of wrestling. Angle has lost his passion and will, but ECIII never will. That's why he issued an open challenge to face the new American icon. He asks who it'll be. He's interrupted by Bobby Lashley.

Steel Cage Match
Bobby Lashley vs. Ethan Carter III

Carter complains that Bobby isn't on the roster as Lashley climbs into the ring. Carter asks if he knows who he is? ECIII says this match won't be happening, he knows he doesn't have a contract. And Lashley doesn't want to end up like Angle. Carter keeps telling Lashley to leave the ring, and that he's warning him.

Lashley ducks a punch and shoulders ECIII. Lashley hits a running powerslam, then gets ready in the corner. Lashley hits a giant spear, and poses in the corner. Carter crawls out of the cage on his way up the ramp, while Lashley continues to pose in the ring. Tenay and Taz talk about what this means, and ask if Lashley is back in TNA.

          • Depends on its mood.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Some VERY tight shots of the crowd.

    • Might be because they were still selling tickets up to the bell?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Throwback Sunday? I’ll allow it!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    FAIL SABIN!

  • josh

    How does the crowd look so far?

  • Andrew

    anyone here think something interesting or kinda surprising happens tonight? i say probably during the team mvp vs team dixie match

    • Fingers crossed.

      • Andrew

        i hope bobby roode turns on team dixie that would be interesting

        • But will he do it with 10% on the line?

          • Andrew

            hmm good point maybe after the match? either way thats my prediction him turning on team dixie

          • I’ll hold you to that!

          • Andrew

            ok!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Seiya Sanada is a VERY big talent for TNA to acquire. He is a fantastic high flyer.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Yasu, aka Nakanoue, is a technical wrestler the style of Angle and Taz.

  • That was an almost ten minute match, and full of action! BI and Fail Sabin kept up in a huge way!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    EY!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Creepy B****** is next!

  • Andrew

    did anyone else here liked mr anderson when he was in wwe? i know he had the issues but he was a pretty good heel in my opinion and could have been a world champion.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I loved him in WWE! Easily the biggest mistake they have made in the past 6 years is releasing Anderson.

      • Andrew

        agreed! his feud with the undertaker was very good!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, here’s a thought…

    What if Hardy no-shows on Team MVP tonight? Considering Willow debuts on Thursday…

    • David Jr.

      Well it would be pay back for how he treated his brother.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    AND-ER-SON!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Anderson is a negotiator! Who knew?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So this is Escape only! That makes this much more interesting!

  • Hemme!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Ok, why the heck are the fans chanting for CM Punk at a TNA EVENT?!??!

    • David Jr.

      Fans – LET IT GO!!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        AMEN, and be sure to read David’s parody song of Frozen’s Let it Snow on WWENews.net ! (Cheap Plug)

        • David Jr.

          Thanks for the Cheap Plug, though it’s go not snow.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So Anderson wins, but Shaw has Christy in the Cage!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bell never rang to end the match!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    WTF?!?!?!

  • Wait, Earl didn’t see Anderson take the keys from his hands?

  • TNA Logic at its finest

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Sadly, yes… Is Russo back?

      • David Jr.

        Are you here tonight because you want to hit the 10,000 tommorrow? or maybbe even tonight?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          I’d have hit it tomorrow regardless! I post 200-250 a week on Raw alone.

  • Team Roode fighting over Roode’s 10%

  • Who is EC3 facing now that Angle is not able to wrestle?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Open Challenge of Impact Roster.

    • David Jr.

      Eric Angle?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So, EC3 issued an Open Challenge to anyone on the current roster… That means Abyss, Joseph, Bully, Garrett, Knux, Hernandez, King, Rob Terry, STING, and Ion.

  • I liked how EC3 rolled with that chant

    • EC3 really found his groove on Impact a couple days ago. I hope he keeps up with it.

  • Bobby Lashley!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Don’t try to hijack this!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    LASHLEY!!!!

  • Lashley! Said he’d come back when Hogan was gone!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    So TNA gets their Batista back!

  • I missed that spear.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    EC3 is a lawn dart!

  • King of the night?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      More like King of the John… Because he is my Bio Break.

  • Charlie Crimefighter Hovey

    Jeff Jarrett will be the insurance for team Dixie

  • Jesse Sherwood

    That’s not TJ Perkins…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Tigre Uno is a crazy man… He’s like ECW in Lucha form.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sigh… #TNALogic

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Sick pin by Manik!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Wow… That’s all I’ll say… WOW!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    They changed Storm’s music back to his old stuff!

    • David Jr.

      Crayola, I liked Long necks and rednecks.

      • I might just have to steal the crayola comment!

        • David Jr.

          Steal it for what?

          • To use. I’m a potty mouth and always looking for creative ways to not cuss.

          • David Jr.

            I’ve always used creative ways, but I’ve never been a potty mouth.

          • Pain has turned me into a cusser.

          • David Jr.

            Oh by the way, you can steal Crayola.

          • Thanks!

      • Jesse Sherwood

        What color Crayola?

        • David Jr.

          I use Crayola instead crap since I work at a day care.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            I know! I was making a bad joke. Your reply should have been “Burnt Sienna”

        • David Jr.

          Midnight Blue.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Oooooo! Pretty!!!

          • Like your hair!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep!

          • David Jr.

            Is his hair pretty or midnight blue?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Both!

          • It’s an interesting mix. I like it. Then again, I have a pink streak that I’ve had for almost 23 years, so I’m partial to funky hair.

          • David Jr.

            I would never dye my hair but that’s because a barber told me I had such nice hair and that I would never go bald. so my mess with perfection.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Even despite the dying, every time I go to the Beauty School, they comment on how I have some of the healthiest hair they have ever seen.

          • David Jr.

            I’m a “Beauty School Dropout” Though my guardian angel, Frankie Avalon tried to make me go back.

          • Between the chemo and all the other meds I’ve been on, I’m lucky to have hair. I enjoy what I have, and people who barely know me, recognize me by my pink streak. My service dog too, but also the streak.

          • David Jr.

            Hey that’s cool. I bet the pink streak looked cool. I don’t know why I said cool so many times.

          • That’s cool.

  • That’s what Gunner gets for leaving his feat

  • Superplex through the chairs!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Posting links is not allowed here on WNW. You WILL be banned for it!

  • Gunner wins by being the last man standing.

  • Gail Kim vs Madison Rayne should be a good Knockouts championship match

  • Jesse Sherwood

    It’s the Killer Queen!

  • Enjoying Starburst Jellybeans. Yummy!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Yummy!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Loving this KO match! If we only had Taryn Terrell… We’d have a perfect match!

  • What a Spear! did Rayne take a lesson form Lashley?

  • Really nice promo and Video package from Joe here.

    • Watching all this come together reminds me of when Alex and I interviewed Mags. He put over Joe, and Joe’s help in a huge way. He was really sweet and caring when he spoke about Joe, so I expect a lot here.

      • David Jr.

        Maybe Joe can give Magnus’s title reign some credibiility

        • Joe’s contract is coming up. TNA Policy states he must get the championship to entice him to stay.

          • Jesse Sherwood

            Yep! Section 3, rule 35, paragraph 4!

        • Jesse Sherwood

          That was my thoughts going into the match. Joe is either going to be built as the top face of the company, or he is going to legitimize Magnus’ reign.

          • David Jr.

            I can’t believe it’s was Lockdown 6 years ago when Samoa Joe won his first and only TNA World Championship.

          • Bloody crayola! He more than deserves it!

          • Jesse Sherwood

            So, Torch Red?

  • Taz explaining how Submission was different then Tap Out made me laugh.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      It’s pretty sad that he felt he needed to…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Alex Barie brought a good point on his page: Joe is 8-0 at Lockdown.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Joe and that Scoop Slam!!!

  • Joe Answers the call after that elbow

  • Hey Magnus! Escaping the cage is not a way to win this match

  • What The??!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    ABYSS?!?!

  • Has to be Aby!

  • Bull$h!t! chants.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      And the chant is well deserved!!!

  • Weird tattoo on the guy’s arm

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Janice!!!

  • Told you is was Aby!

  • And Magnus retains. :/
    Abyss Sold his soul to the devil

  • Jesse Sherwood

    The Monster has returned… And sold his soul to Dixie!

    • David Jr.

      So Magnus still can’t retain without interference.

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Paper Champion.

    • David Jr.

      The Monster working for the Boss, hmm, where I have seen this recently?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Aye… It’s not even subtle now.

      • We’ve never seen this! I don’t know what you’re talking about!

      • Michael

        Its Corporate Kane… I mean corporate Abyss

  • How do they plan to fix the ring for the Lethal Lockdown match?

    • New mat and put the board back. No biggie.

      • It’s got to take some time though right?

        • BlazeKing

          Not really. Ring crews can work really fast on that stuff.

        • Five minutes if done right. They know how this all goes. It’s not a biggie at all.

          I watched a ring go together a few months ago and shocked at how easy some of these fixes can be, especially by those who know how to do it.

  • BlazeKing

    Well yeah, that finish was anti-climatic…

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Way to continue to book Magnus as the weakest champion in TNA history… Even FAIL SABIN looks better!

    • BlazeKing

      Mike Tenay is making the same faces I made at that finish, lol.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Even Tenay know this is crappy booking… I wonder if he is having flashbacks to WCW’s dying days?

    • Or Russo/Bischoff/Hogan TNA?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        That was even better than the booking in that match.

  • Cut to backstage to help give an excuse to give them time to fix the ring off camera.

    • Exactly!

    • BlazeKing

      They actually started during the match replay. That’s why there wasn’t a shot of the ring.

  • Andrew

    hopefully something interesting happens at the end night after that bad booking smh

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’m not putting my hopes in it.

      • David Jr.

        Is TNA Mid-Card > TNA Main Event now?

        • Jesse Sherwood

          Yep. But TNA has had that for years now.

          • But it’s showing big in this PPV. It was a great start, yet now we get crap like the end of that last match?

          • Jesse Sherwood

            To be fair, Shaw/Anderson had some janky booking for their ending as well.

  • Like Aries cape.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Aries and MVP to start? I’m liking this!

  • Aries is an awesome Heel. TNA would have been better off to used him in Magnus’s spot.

  • Robbie E. Can someone take him to a desert island and leave him there please?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      I’d do it, but I’d be more prone for Cement Shoes on him…

      • Take Zack Ryder with ya and you’d have a deal.

        • Finally, someone who doesn’t worship Ryder!

          • I’ve never liked Ryder. Nothing made me happier then seeing Kane Chokeslam him through the stage ending his push.

          • I could see him as an actor, not as a wrestler.

          • I can’t. I remember how bad the acting was during the Tire Changing scene with Eve. UGH

          • I didn’t say I want to see him in anything, but I bet Sam would love it!

    • I saw him live and his ring work was really strong, as was his mic work. In person, it was like talking to a blank wall, but it is what it is.

    • David Jr.

      If you drop him off on a desert island he may come back 5 years later as a vigilante archer.

      • *insert DirectTV Commercial line here*

        • David Jr.

          I don’t get it?

  • Jeff Hardy is back.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Willow debuted early!!!

  • I still think Hardy raided Ultramantis Black’s wardrobe.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      YES!

  • Bully Ray is the Special Guest Referee

  • BlazeKing

    It’s like Aces & Eights never happened…

  • Bully Ray adds a table to the match

  • Bully Ray screws Dixie over?

  • Richards missed his side of the can and actually hit the top.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    DOUBLE VAN TERMINATOR!!!!

  • Brainbuster into a Chair! This is Awesome!

    • Jesse Sherwood

      My overlords… I nearly got sick!

  • Very close 3 count.

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Extremely!

  • Bully ray Screwed Dixie.

    • BlazeKing

      She’s the one who forgot about Bully leading Aces & Eights, lol.

  • MVP has total control over Impact.

  • Bully screws Dix. I called it to Jesse when Bully came out!

    • David Jr.

      Before I call it a night, just wanted to tell you that I wrote part 3 of my ultimate series.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Bully with a Rock Bottom!!!

  • Jesse Sherwood

    12th Lethal Lockdown that the Face team has won!

    • David Jr.

      I know that makes the face team 10-0 at Lockdown but has a heel team ever won a Lethal Lockdown at say Bound For Glory or Slammiversary?

      • Jesse Sherwood

        Nope. That’s why I said 12th. it is 12-0. Joe’s Streak ended tonight though…

  • inb4 Dixie gets a bubba bomb through the table

  • supercilious1

    How would you guys rate the main event on a scale from 1-10?

  • Michael

    So I guess a face Bully Ray title run is in the works?

    • Jesse Sherwood

      Maybe… But I honestly just hope this screw was a matter of convenience for Bully Ray.

  • Jesse Sherwood

    Well guys, I think I am going to call it a night tonight. Later!

  • jason witten 82

    So now how long before an mvp heel swerve?

  • Robert

    The Bully face(?) turn is surprising in the grand scheme of things, but it does actually make some historical sense. The A&8 storyline was mainly about Bully screwing over Hogan, but it was Dixie’s company that they were trying to take over. Plus at the end of the A&8 tenure, Dixie wasn’t really interested in doing business with Bully and giving him another shot at Styles. So as the storyline goes, Bully backstabbing Dixie makes sense.

    • Josh Melton

      Correct, Bully Ray was never a face during The A&8 storyline, simply because he was tricking peoples the whole time. just to gain the World Title, that’s why he screw Hogan and Brooke

  • Michael

    I think it was pretty obvious MVP’s team was going over once Magnus retained the title. Actually it’s been pretty obvious for weeks, but the Magnus win sealed the deal.
    They wouldn’t bring in MVP and play up this investor angle that much just to have it die off before it even gets going. The only thing TNA knows how to do is invasion/faction storylines. This one just so happens to be 2014s version.

  • jdl

    And Bully Ray is suddenly the center of another storyline he doesn’t belong in. Sad that TNA has fallen so far as to constantly feature a fat, over the hill slob like Bully Ray in every major storyline.

    • Josh Melton

      “After hearing #ChicagoRaw crowd tonight has helped me make an important career decision @IMPACTWRESTLING. Stay tuned.”

      Bully Ray career decision was betraying Dixie by handing the company over to MVP, He put one over the IWC once again, peoples think he was talking about WWE return.

      • Mysterion

        Bubba and HHH hate each other. It’d take a miracle for him to work for WWE again. Don’t think anyone thought that dude. No offence intended.

        • Josh Melton

          When, Bully Ray sent that tweet many wrestling sites ran with it and assume, he was hinting at a WWE return. I believe his tweet was for Lockdown,PPv where team with Mvp.

  • Alain Labatos

    I heard there were Punk chants during the PPV

  • PFA56

    I usually ignore TNA.
    Only reason I watched Lockdown was to see The Great Muta work in the U.S. for probably the last time.

  • BigMike

    Muta is a god; simple as that. when asked I am sure Bully will say that he is and has always been onhis own side, noone else’s. When will the idiots at Impact/TNA realize how bad of a failure EC3 and Bromance are? they are botch- happy and only have a look without real mic ability or any ability in the ring
