Hello TNA fans, and welcome back to the latest edition of Xplosion eXamination! In this article, I examine all of the Xplosion matches uploaded on TNA’s official YouTube channel. Below each match breakdown, I have posted the match clip for you to watch!
Crazzy Steve def. Rockstar Spud(11/1/14)
As one could expect, this was nothing short of a comedy match. Rockstar Spud was still heel at the time and was dominated most of the match. Crazzy Steve is entertaining to watch and he plays his character quite well. As for the ring work in this match, it wasn't all there. Most of the match featured Spud avoiding Steve, only to be caught and attacked. Crazzy Steve planted Spud with a DDT for the win.
Magnus def. The Freak(11/8/14)
This unique match featured a rare appearance from former World Champion Magnus and The Freak in singles competition. I was surprised to see Magnus on Xplosion, which honestly is sad considering he was on the verge of winning the World Title just a year ago. We haven't seen The Freak in action very much. While Rockstar Spud was on commentary hyping British Bootcamp 2, Spud mentioned that The Freak is actually a British wrestler as well. This was a decent match, but I felt it could've been better. I still can't judge The Freak on his in-ring work much yet, although he does have a great look. Magnus picked up the win with his finisher after Knux accidentally distracted the ref when The Freak was pinning Magnus.
Low Ki def. DJ Z(11/21/14)
Low Ki made a surprising appearance on this week's exclusive Xplosion match. The current X-Division Champion went one-on-one with another talented X-Division star, DJ Z. Both men proved why they are former X-Division Champions in this fun match. Low Ki seemed to dominate most of the match used lots of unique offensive maneuvers to pick up the win with the Ki Crusher.
Taryn Terrell def. Velvet Sky (11/28/14)
This edition of Xplosion featured the Knockouts. Taryn Terrell went one-on-one with former Knockouts Champion Velvet Sky. Angelina Love and Earl Hebner provided a few interferences, but Taryn overcame it all and was able to get Velvet Sky down for the three-count as she works her way to win her first Knockouts Championship.
That's it for the month of November! Stay tuned for more Xplosion eXamination in 2015! You can follow me on Twitter @cj_blaze24.
