Jeff Jarrett starts off Impact with the TNA title. He is out to present the title to Mick Foley. Foley comes out to the ring and says he knows that its a great moment. He shows everyone the camera guy who got hit by Foley drop kicking the cage. He says the moment was bitter sweet. He said Sting was broken and won’t be in the ring for a while. “We want Sting” chants here as Jarrett gives Foley the title. Double J says he never thought that him and Mick would stand in the ring like this. Jarrett praises Foley and says that at Sacrifice he will face three challengers. If Foley is pinned, he loses the title. If his challengers are pinned, the challengers who are sacrificing something important to them. The one who pins the challenger gets that. Foley asks what happened to one on one. Mick Foley says he thinks Jeff is jealous. Foley announces that since he is in a match at Sacrifice, Jarrett will be in a match tonight. He announces a Cactus Jack Smack Attack, a hardcore match where Foley selects some items that you may not normally see. So it will be Scott Steiner going up against Double J and Mick Foley will be doing color commentary.

Lauren is with the Beautiful People who are celebrating Angelina Love’s win. I think my ears were bleeding during the segment.

Don West is with Team 3D and asks Brother Ray about the Tag Team Division. They say that Beer Money is the future of tag team wrestling. Brother Ray announces the Team 3D tag team tournament. Winners get a $1,000 check and a shot at the titles.

Team 3D Invitational Quarterfinal Match: Beer Money Inc. vs Lethal Consequences

Beer Money looks extremely focused. James Storm and Jay Lethal start out the match with Lethal taking control early. Consequences Creed is tagged in and he eats a right hand as Robert Roode is able to to tag in. Creed jumps over the top rope to take out Beer Money. Creed suplexes Roode into the ring. Blind tag by Storm leads to a few quick tag team moves and a couple close falls. Beer Money hits the double suplex and then does the Beer Money chant. Creed and Storm both go for cross body blocks and both struggle to make tags. Lethal comes in and hits a flurry for a two count. Lethal hits the Lethal Combination on Roode for a close two count. Beer Money hits the DWI for the three count to move on in the tournament. A very entertaining match. 4 out fo 5 stars. Continue reading

TNA Lockdown Results and Review

I was at TNA Lockdown in Philadelphia so I don’t have the play by play of what happened. The results as well as special moments and interesting news are below.

Dark Match: Eric Young vs Danny Bonaduce

This was a publicity stunt for both organizations. Bonaduce didn’t look terrible, but not that good either. Eric Young won via roll up.

Xscape Match: Suicide (c) vs “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal vs Consequences Creed vs Sheik Abdul Bashir vs Kiyoshi

This was a ton of fun to watch. The action was fast and furious. The match came down to Bashir and Sucide. As Suicide made it to the other side of the cage, Kiyoshi tried to grab him. TNA security pulled Kiyoshi away as Suicide climbed to the top of the cage. Suicide jumped off the cage onto security and Kiyoshi giving him the title and the win.

Queen of the Cage: ODB vs Madison Rayne vs Sojourner Bolt vs Daffney

Nothing truly interesting about this match. There were four wrestlers in the ring and Cody Deaner outside the ring was the most entertaining part of the match. ODB wins by pinning Sojo Bolt.

IWGP Jr. Tag Team Championships Match: The Motor City Machine Guns (c) vs. No Limit vs. LAX

This was an extremely entertaining match. All of the teams looked on top of their game for the show. This match moved at break neck speed and never stopped. The Guns would win the match by a Sliced Bread/ Powerbomb combination (Made in Detroit) on Naito of No Limit for the victory.

Chamber of Blood Match: Matt Morgan vs Abyss

Abyss and Matt Morgan heard everything from “We Want Blood” to “Boring” chants. All in all, it was a typical big man match. Dr. Stevie distracted Abyss long enough for Morgan to slam him on thumbtacks to get the win.

TNA Knockout Title Match: Awesome Kong (c) vs Taylor Wilde vs Angelina Love

This was probably one of the best Knockout matches I can remember. The one moment that will stick out in this match was Awesome Kong doing a front flip off of the top rope. It was absolutely incredible. Angelina Love picked up the victory after pinning Taylor Wilde.

Tag Team Unification Title Match: Beer Money Inc. vs Team 3D

This may have been the loudest match I ever saw. This was the first match I was on my feet for its entirety. Both teams fought in the my section so it was nice seeing that whole thing. Team 3D got the win, and as I said before, they won’t lose in Philly.

Lethal Lockdown: Team Jarrett (AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe, and Jeff Jarrett) vs Team Angle (Kurt Angle, Scott Steiner, Booker T, and Kevin Nash)

The word awesome doesn’t even begin to describe the match. This match had everything you could ever want. Almost everyone hit their finishing move or did something amazing. Two moments that I will remember about the match are AJ Styles jumping through the cage and taking out everyone, and Bobby Lashley making his TNA debut. The place erupted when Lashley walked out. Angle had a smile on his face, so maybe he will be in the MEM. Team Jarrett got the win as Double J hits Booker T with the guitar.

TNA World Title Match: Sting vs Mick Foley

Competitively speaking, this match wasn’t that great. It was a good match, but it needed to be a little faster. Foley showed no regard for himself or anyone else and Sting didn’t want to fight him originally. Foley gained the victory by escaping the cage.

All in all, TNA Lockdown was incredible. I never expected to see Styles go through the cage or Lashley. This is one of of the best pay per view events I have seen and I recommend everyone see it.

I got six out of nine correct, while my brother got four out of nine. Let me know what you all think of him and his predictions. I would like to get someone else in on predictions for ppvs.

TNA Lockdown is tonight in just a few hours and I will be going to the event at Temple University with my brother, Anthony.  Below is the match line up and what we think will happen.

Dark Match: Danny Bonaduce vs. Eric Young

Pete: This is just a publicity stunt. Eric Young will try to make Bonaduce look presentable but EY comes out on top.

Ant: There is no way TNA lets Eric Young lose this match.

X-Division Title Xcape Match: Suicide © vs. Kiyoshi vs. Jay Lethal vs. Sheik Abdul Bashir vs. Consequences Creed

Pete: I think Suicide takes this one because Kiyoshi and Bashir take each other out.

Ant: I agree with Suicide winning however I think either member of Lethal Consequences can take the belt.

TNA Knockouts Queen of the Cage Match: ODB vs. Madison Rayne vs. Daffney vs. Sojo Bolt

Pete: I like Madison Rayne.

Ant: I think ODB will continue to impress.

IWGP Jr. Tag Team Title Match: The Motor City Machine Guns © vs. No Limit vs. LAX

Pete: The Guns have this one in the bag. I don’t see either team giving them much issue for a different reason.

Ant: I think LAX wins. They have the chance to now take control of almost every title in the company.

Doomsday Chamber of Blood Match: Abyss vs. Matt Morgan

Pete: I like Matt Morgan. Dr. Stevie will be involved.

Ant: I think Abyss finally gets the win he wants over Morgan.

TNA Knockouts Title Match: Awesome Kong © vs. Angelina Love vs. Taylor Wilde

Pete and Ant: KONG. There is no reason why anyone would win the belt.

Winner Takes All – TNA World Tag Team Titles vs. IWGP Tag Team Titles Philadelphia Street Fight: Beer Money © vs. Team 3D ©

Ant: Agreed.

Lethal Lockdown: Team Jarrett (Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Jeff Jarrett and Christopher Daniels) vs. Team Angle (Kurt Angle, Scott Steiner, Booker T and Kevin Nash)

Pete: I like Team Jarrett. They smell blood and the reversal of the decision on Impact left them with a bad taste in their mouth.

Ant: Team Angle will take this one. Jarrett is the deciding factor.

TNA World Title Match: Sting © vs. Mick Foley

Pete: I think Sting wins this match.

Ant: Foley won’t win the title because he is management.

AJ Styles comes out to the ring to talk about his match and Jeff Jarret’s mistake that cost him the match. He says he wants to make sure they are on the same page come Lockdown.

Jarrett comes out to the ring. AJ says that he understands Jarrett is under a lot of pressure and he wants to know if he will be fighting on AJ’s side.  Jarrett feels insulted that he asked that question. Jarrett asks where the trust is at and says he has a lot of guts to question his loyalties. Jarrett says that AJ will see where his loyalty lies when the fourth member is revealed.

The Main Event Mafia comes out to the ring. Kurt Angle says that Kevin Nash can’t wrestle tonight because the doctor won’t clear him to wrestle. Angle says he wants Nash’s spot. AJ says they should forfeit and Angle questions Jarrett’s pull in the company. Jarrett says ok  and we have Angle vs Jarrett’s Mystery Man tonight.

Lauren is with Sheik Abdul Bashir, Kiyoshi, and Team No Limit. He just yelled into the mic, but what else is new.

The Main Event Mafia heads the ring to address TNA management. Sting gets on the mic and says he wants to talk to Jeff Jarrett. Double J is in the ring and asks Sting what he wants. Sting asks who is running the company him or Mick Foley. Sting wants some revenge on Foley for him pulling rank. Sting says that if Mick is running the show then let everyone know. Jarrett says that he runs the company. Sting says it’s only fair if he does the same thing Foley did to Sting last week. Double J asks why he is questioning his authority. Sting says he is the TNA champion and wants to use some pull. Scott Steiner gets the mic and says that he told Jarrett about this last week. Jarrett says that the road Steiner wants him to take isn’t an option.

The Motor City Machine Guns come out and everyone looks confused. Alex Shelley has a mic in his hand and says that he and Chris Sabin were playing video games in the back and their hearts go out to Sting. He also says that Foley is the boss, not Jarrett. Shelley goes on to say that he wants revenge for the humiliation he went through this week on Thanksgiving. He asks Jeff Jarrett what he thinks. Jarrett gives Sabin and Shelley the match.

Jeremy Borash is with Mick Foley to get his reaction. He says that he is in shock, and likes the match he will be in.

JB is with Foley and Jarrett. Foley says that he booked a heck of a main event and wants to “tweak” the match. JB asks Jarrett why he hasn’t been himself lately. Continue reading

This should be a good episode.

Jeff Jarrett comes to the ring to address the Lethal Lockdown match. He talks about what happened last week with Samoa Joe not wanting to be the captain of the team. He names AJ Styles to be the captain of Team TNA. Styles says thanks but no thanks. He wants on the team, but doesn’t want to be captain. Styles says that he thinks Jarrett to be the captain, and they will win. Jarrett agrees and Scott Steiner comes out. Steiner tells Jarrett that AJ is right and takes a shot at the locker room. Steiner says that Jeff Jarrett and the MEM are the same.  Steiner brings up Jill (Jarrett’s wife who recently passed away) to protect his kids. He asked Jarrett who could he trust with his girls. Styles says that Jeff can trust the rest of the roster and his heart.  AJ challenges Steiner to the Lethal Lockdown Advantage Challenge match.This leads me to believe the “Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels will be the final man at Lethal Lockdown.  You heard it here first.

Jeremy Borash is with the Main Event Mafia and asks about Steiner asking Jarrett into the mafia. He says it was the plan all along. Kurt Angle says that he will apologize to Sting tonight. He says that the last thing TNA needs is another person to invest their money in the company.

Lauren is with Sheik Abdul Bashir and he says that TNA management needs to worry because the USA will fall.

Lethal Consequences and LAX vs Sheik Abdul Bashir, Kiyoshi, and Team No Limit

Bashir and Homicide will start of the match. Homicide tags in Hernandez and Super Mex goes to work. Super Mex tags in “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal and Bashir drags Lethal into his corner. Yujiro tagges in and poses to the crowd. Kiyoshi is tagged in and hits a cross body block for a two count.  Lethal tags in Consequences Creed and he has right hands for Kiyoshi. Suicide dives from Jay Lethal and Homicide. Hernandez joins them outside levaing Bashir and Creed in the ring.  Sheik Abdul Bashir hits the DDT and pins Creed. A great match that needed to go longer. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

JB is with Jarrett and Mick Foley. Jarrett says that he regrets Foley buying into TNA. He says Foley is ridiculous. Foley is off his rocker.  Jarrett says he doesn’t understand that why Foley hit Sting.  Foley says that he has a big decision.

JB is with Jim Cornette and Team 3D.  Team 3D asks Jim Cornette if he will keep his promise. Rocco and Sal tell Cornette that they want Team 3D in the ring tonight.

The Beautiful People come out and talk to Mike Tenay and Don West at the announce table. They say that Taylor Wilde will be recieving a hair cut.

Mike Tenay is sitting with Foley for an exclusive interview and asks about what happened between him and Sting. He says that something snapped inside him and he may be selling himself short. He is talking about a huge elbow from high heights. Foley says that he never thought about the championship, but the action in the Impact Zone is infectious. Foley says that why not win the title?  Foley seems out of his mind.

Abyss’ therapy session with Dr. Stevie: This is another good episode. Dr. Stevie says that he shouldn’t have used weapon. The Doomsday Chamber of Blood  match will be Abyss and Matt Morgan at Lockdown. Dr. Stevie then physically abuses Abyss. This is an interesting twist in the storyline.

TNA Roughcut with Team 3D: Another great insight into the world of Team 3D.

Rocco and Sal vs Team 3D

James Storm and Robert Roode are at the announcers table.  I smell a Beer Money Inc. face turn. Rocco and Brother Ray start off. Ray and Sal go at it and it isn’t looking good. Big Rocco goes airborne and hits a splash on Brother Ray. Rocco and Sal are taking it to Brother Ray. Brother Ray hits a Book End on Sal. Devon is tagged in and Devon is clearing house. Devon gets a two count as Rocco hits a scoop slam. Rocco goes up to the top rope, but is met by Team 3D. Sal is hit with the 3D for the three count. Roode gives them the thumbs up. Beer Money comes in and hits Rocco and Sal as they beat up on Team 3D.  Beer Money hands the IWGP tage titles to Team 3D and leave the ring. The match wasn’t that good. 2 out of 5 stars.

JB is with Foley and he sees Samoa Joe. Joe says Mick can give him the MEM.

Lauren is with Beer Money and asks what happened there. Roode says that Beer Money is serious and that at Lockdown they want Team 3D at their best. From now until Lockdown, Beer Money has Team 3D’s backs.

Kurt Angle comes out to the ring with the rest of the Main Event Mafia to apologize to Sting.  Angle says he questioned everything about Sting and spit in his face. He says that he was wrong and apologizes. Angle extends his hand and Sting says that a simple handshake isn’t going to cut it.  Sting says the Angle is the biggest spoiled rotten brat in TNA. Sting says he isn’t buying into the apology. Sting walks out of the ring as Kevin Nash grabs the mic. Nash asks him what happened to turning the other cheek. Nash says that Angle needs him and he is the only one that can make it right.

Foley’s music hits as he appears up in the rafters. He says he has been getting acquainted with an old friend. By old friend, he means a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. He says that to make sure Sting is ready for Lockdown, Sting will have to face Samoa Joe.

Dr. Stevie is now with the Governor: This was slightly odd with the Governor becoming Daffney again.  This is going to be interesting with Daffney returning to her old self.

Madison Rayne w/ Angelina Love and Velvet Sky vs Taylor Wilde

The Beautiful People push Wilde in the ring and Rayne drops her across the rope. Wilde hits a calf kick for a two count. Madison Rayne counters with a few knee strikes and a swinging neck breaker. Bridging suplex by Wilde gets a two count.  Wilde with an interesting roll up and gets the pin.  The Beautiful People try to cut Wilde’s hair but she escapes.  The Beautiful People then tell Rayne to go after her. A very good Knockout match. 3 out of 5 stars.

We come out of commercial with The Beautiful People cutting Wilde’s hair. AJ Styles and Scott Steiner are on their way to the ring.

Lauren is with Jenna Morasca and asks about what Kurt said. Nash comes out and says that Angle said she was the hotest thing he’s ever seen and they walk out.

Lethal Lockdown Advantage Challenge match: AJ Styles vs Scott Steiner

Steiner uses the power game and knocks Styles with a shoulder block. AJ counters a whip into the corner with a reverse atomic drop and a clothesline. After a slew of hay makers, Steiner hits a scoop slam.  Stiener goes for a scoop slam, but as AJ is countering, Stiener hits him with a low blow.

We come out of commercial with AJ and Steiner down. Styles and Steinergoe shot for shot, leading to a bridging suplex for a two count. Styles went for a huracanrana, but Steiner countered into a powerbomb for a two count. AJ hits a back breaker and goes for the flying forearm, but the ref was in the way. Angle slides in a chair and Steiner swings at him, but AJ Styles hits the Pele. Jarrett goes after Angle, Jarret grabs the chair from Styles. Stiener plants AJ’s face on the chair and earns the three count. The MEM have a 1-0 advantage. A very good match that had me guessing. 4 out of 5 stars.

JB is with Sting and asks about his match with Samoa Joe tonight. Sting says the win, lose, or draw, he will survive and next week Foley will pay.

Sting vs Samoa Joe

Joe runs into the ring and goes right after Sting. A lot of back and forth action but Joe gets the better of it and throws the ref. Joe hits the Muscle Buster on Sting and then uses the choke. Booker T comes in, and Joe drills him.  Joe goes for the chair and slides it into the ring. Sharmell is begging Joe to stop, but he takes Sharmell out of the Impact Zone. A great spot but not a match.

Overall Promo Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.

Best Match: AJ Styles vs Scott Steiner

Worst Match: Team 3D vs MEM Security (Rocco and Sal)

Overall Rating:3.3 out of 5 stars.

Here are the matches on tap for tonight’s Impact:

A double main event. One is not announced.

LAX and Lethal Consequences vs Sheik Abdul Bashir, Kiyoshi, and Team No Limit

Taylor Wilde vs Madison Rayne

My Predictions:

There is a double main event: one of which I do not know what it will be, but my guess is that it will be a match for lethal lockdown to see who gets the advantage. If so, the member from Team Angle will win.

Bashir, Kiyoshi, and Team No Limit defeats LAX and Lethal Consequences

Madison Rayne defeats Taylor Wilde

What to Look for: Another therapy session with Abyss and the captain of “Team Joe” search.
