About half way through my review, I lost all of the things  for my review so I’ll put up the matches and the need to know things from tonight’s episode of Impact:

The Matches:

Kurt Angle and Mick Foley vs Matt Morgan and Abyss

Abyss was worked on through most of the match. This was an ok main event. It didn’t have a ton of spots until the end. The finish saw Abyss fake a shot at Foley with the barbed wire bat, sending Foley into the Carbon Footprint.

TNA X Division Title Match: Samoa Joe (c) vs Amazing Red

This wasn’t a bad match, but it did make Red look weak. Red is a great wrestler and did some phenomenal things during the match, but if Bobby Lashley hadn’t come out, Red couldn’t have pulled the upset. Red got the win with a standing shooting star press.

TNA Legends Title Match: Kevin Nash (c) vs Hernandez

This was ruled a no contest after Eric Young interfered. No shocker here. Before that, the match was ok at best.

TNA Knockout Title Match: ODB (c) vs Tara

This was a quick one since there was only 20 minutes left in the show and the main event still to come. The crowd was not really into this match as much as the others. As expected, Awesome Kong came out and she is bringing a sledge hammer. ODB pins Tara after hitting the TKO.

Daniels and Suicide vs D’Angelo Dinero and Homicide

With Daniels, Suicide, and Dinero, you would think this would be a great match. This one left a lot to be suspected. During the match, Homicide attacks Willie Urbina and Hector Guerrero. The finish came when Dinero hit the Express on Daniels, when he went for the BME.

Knockout Tag Elimination Match: Madison Rayne, Velvet Sky, Alissa Flash, and Traci Brooks vs Hamada, Sarita, Taylor Wilde and Christy Hemme

The match was a good knockout match, with some fairly good wrestling. This wasn’t anything to write home to mom about, but the main issue was trying to squeeze an elimination match in a less than 10 minute spanm it doesn’t work. Rayne gains the victory after Lacey Von Erich hit a chokeslam on Sarita with the ref’s back turned.

What you need to know:

Abyss will face Mick Foley in a Monster’s Ball match at Bound For Glory. Foley tweaked the match so Dr. Stevie could be the special guest referee and Abyss can’t use thumbtacks.

Team 3D, Booker T and Scott Steiner, Beer Money Inc., and The British Invasion sign a contract for a ladder match between the four teams. The IWGP Tag Titles and the TNA Tag Titles will be on the line.

Kevin Nash will take on Eric Young and Hernandez at BFG for the Legend’s title.

Just as a reminder, I have a show at the Shuman Theater in Philadelphia tonight at 9 so I will not be able to cover tonight’s episode of TNA Impact. I will try to have my roommate tape it but I don’t know if he will remember.

Here are the announced matches for tonight’s episode of Impact:

Battle of the Playboy Models: Christy Hemme vs Traci Brooks

Kurt Angle vs Hernandez

Ladder Match to be the Number One Contender for the X Division Championship: Amazing Red vs Kiyoshi vs Sheik Abdul Bashir vs Consequences Creed vs Jay Lethal

If I am not mistaken, Lacey Von Erich should be making an appearance.

My Predictions:

Hemme defeats Brooks

Hernandez defeats Angle. Matt Morgan will be involved somehow.

Amazing Red climb the ladder to take the win. I think this could have the potential for Impact match of the year.

New TNA Web Match

450 Splash Update

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2009 by biggman621

Unfortunately, I will not be able to cover this thursday’s episode of TNA Impact. I am in a sketch/improv comedy troop and we have a show in Philadelphia that night. I will be posting a preview and results, but due to Spike not replaying the show next week, I will not be reviewing it. For anyone in the area who is free that night, I strongly urge them to come out to the show and come see me in action.

If anyone is curious as to where to go and how to meet me, send me an email at giglio44@gmail.com saying you would like info on the show. We are known as of right now as The Uncensored Maniacs (though the name is subject to change). To give you a little preview about what you might see at the show, I have attached 2 videoes of us playing the improv game “World’s Worst” and a Pokemon sketch that yours truely wrote.

I MUST stress that this video is uncensored and may be offensive to some. So, only mature audiences should view the video. I will put it on you to be able to decide if you should watch. BTW, I am in the Italia shirt.

The Main Event Mafia are in the ring and Kurt Angle is putting over the strength of them. He says he didn’t lose the title and blames the loss on Matt Morgan. He says he was nice about working together, but now its Angle vs Morgan at Bound For Glory. Angle says the MEM is the most dominant faction in TNA and the World Elite come to the ring.

Eric Young says that the statement Angle made is a joke. EY says that he saved Angle from Hernandez at No Surrender. EY says he feels like he bailed Angle out. EY says he has a singles match with Hernandez tonight and to repay the favor, Angle will help EY take Super Mex out. Booker T grabs the mic and he says that this is TNA and the MEM rules TNA. Booker T says he never liked EY or any of the World Elite. Booker T actually said something that made sense. Booker T is livid and Angle jumps in. Angle says that they do business the right way and agrees to take Super Mex out.

Sting says that he is appreciative of the honor and he puts over Styles. Sting gets out of the ring and Styles asks him to hold on. Styles says he knows what he did at No Surrender and he says he had a choice to pin Angle or take out Morgan. Sting get back in the ring and he says that he didn’t give Styles anything. Sting says he earned it and Styles says Sting passed him the torch. Styles says he wants to do something for the Stinger. AJ Styles says he wants to give him the chance to wrestle in front of his friends and family at Bound For Glory. Styles says he has to beat the best to be the best and Sting is the best.

Hernandez and Matt Morgan vs Eric Young and Kurt Angle

I will be honest. I smell a squash match in the works.

Angle and Hernandez start off the match with Angle jumping out of the ring. Angle locks in a headlock and Hernandez throws him off. Angle looks completely shocked. Angle kicks Hernandez, but he is thrown off to the side. Hernandez throws him across the ring and EY comes in. Hernandez hits a backdrop on EY and a sit out powerbomb on Angle.

Foley hits a double underhook DDT on Abyss and Booker T hits the axe kick to gain the three count.

Foley breaks the tape over Abyss’ head and says it was Abyss who broke the picture. Foley punches and kicks him down to the ground, blaming him for everything. JB comes down and says that Foley doesn’t need to beat down Abyss. Foley grabs the barbed wire bat and hits Abyss in the stomach and the back. Abyss takes another shot to the head, followed by another bat shot to the head. Abyss is dripping blood and yelling “why?” as the episode comes to an end.
