This match was very good and I thought it would end in a weird way, but I couldn’t put my finger on it. It was still fun to watch. 4 out of 5 stars

Ultimate Sacrifice Match for the TNA Heavyweight Title: Mick Foley (c) vs Jeff Jarrett vs Sting vs Kurt Angle
Sting pins Kurt Angle to take control of the MEM. This may have been the best Heavyweight Title match I have seen this year. 5 out of 5 stars.

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.

New TNA Webmatch

Posted in News, web match with tags , , , , , , on April 6, 2009 by biggman621

TNA‘s new web match features Robert Roode with James Storm going up against “Showtime” Eric Young. This was a very good match. I have noticed that the web matches have gotten a lot better in recent weeks.

TNA Impact Review 3/26/09

I am so excited for this 20 man Gauntlet match. The only issue I can see is that there is so much action I won’t be able to type as fast as the action is going. I will do my best though.

Jim Cornette is in the ring and says that Sting will take on Mick Foley will be for the TNA World Heavyweight Title. The rules of Lethal Lockdown are explained with the first two combatants having 5 minutes in the cage. Each wrestler will then come in every two minutes, alternating teams.

The Main Event Mafia come in on their own showing the disrespect to the rest of the locker room. Cornette says he assumes Kurt Angle has a question. Kurt asks why do they think everyone will get the same opportunity in the match. He says he has been elected team captain and the MEM will be a team. Kurt goes on to say that no one can stop the Main Event Mafia and there is nothing anyone can do to stop them.

Jeff Jarrett comes out and says he will be in the match tonight. He promises that Angle won’t be a captain. Jarrett throws a right hand at Angle and then all of the wrestlers break up the brawl.

Jeremy Borash is with the Main Event Mafia. Jenna Morasca was being escorted out by Kevin Nash. Angle says that Jarrett won’t make it to the match tonight and is going to go after him with a lead pipe.

TNA X Division Title Match: Suicide (c) vs Kiyoshi w/ Team No Limit

Kiyoshi hits a spinning kick and follows it up with a swinging neck breaker. Kiyoshi follows up with a fore arm strike and continues the offense. Kiyoshi throws Suicide out of the ring and Team No Limit takes him out. Suicide is being outsmarted and outpowered thus far in the match. Kiyoshi tries to hit the splash from the top rope and misses. Suicide connects on a couple kicks and a DDT for a two count. Suicide hits some knees and sends him into Yujiro. Suicide hits his finisher, the Suicide Solution, for the three count. A very good match and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Kiyoshi at Lockdown. 3 out of 5 stars.

Angle is in the hall heading to Jarrett’s office as we go to commercial.

Angle gets to the door where he is met by the rest of the locker room to make sure that Angle didn’t get through.

Lauren is with The Beautiful People and Madison Rayne. Angelina Love is happy heard the comment about Awesome Kong and they want the title. Velvet Sky said she passed the test last week, but now she has to rip Kong’s braids. I would like to see her try.

TNA Rough Cut with Brother Ray: He goes through his journey about how he got into the business.

Beer Money Inc. and Team 3D montage is pretty cool.

Mike Tenay is with both teams. Team 3D says how they love Philadelphia and they will walk out the champs. James Storm says that they will be the biggest team ever after the beat Team 3D. Robert Roode says that this is the most important match they have ever had. That will be an awesome match.

Lauren is with Sting and asks about the match and the face to face with him tonight. Sting says he has no idea what to say to him and he hasn’t done much that is logical. He says that if he decides to come armed, then Sting will too.

Lauren is with Mick Foley for his response to Sting. Foley will apologize to Sting. He seems relatively sincere….but it is Mick Foley so who knows.

Awesome Kong (c) and Raisha Saeed vs The Beautiful People w/ Madison Rayne

Velvet Sky and Raisha Saeed are in and Sky is in control early. Velvet Sky tags in Angelina Love and she calls out Awesome Kong. Can anyone say death wish? Kong just starts beating down Love. Velvet Sky receives a choke slam and Kong tags in Saeed. I will admit it I am pleasantly surprised by The Beautiful People and their wrestling skills. Raisha Saeed tries to gain some momentum. Angelina Love hits the Lights Out on Raisha Saeed for the three count. Kong takes out The Beautiful People and Madison Rayne before the hair cut can begin. I was very impressed by The Beautiful People and Awesome Kong. Raisha Saeed hurt this match because she didn’t look too good this week. 2 out of 5 stars. This would have been higher but Saeed killed the match for the other three.

Sting comes out to the ring for the confrontation with bat in hand. Sting calls Foley out to the ring and explain what is going on if he can. Foley comes out to the ring and he says that he doesn’t blame him for being angry. Foley says that it was a misunderstanding. He said that he was under the impression that he was saving Jarrett. This gets a ton of boos from the fans. Sting says it isn’t funny and that he was trying to protect him. Sting says he has left everything in the ring for the wrestlers and for the fans. Sting says that he did what he did out of respect and he is starting to lose it. Foley says that he doesn’t need pity and that the second he hit Sting the tables have turned. He says they aren’t talking about the other show (Wrestlemania for those not sure), the fans are talking about Lockdown. Foley says that they will be making history and he still has something in him. The crowd was noticeably split between Sting and Foley.

Abyss and AJ Styles are heading to the ring and will be the first two in the Gauntlet match.

20 Man Six Sides of Steel Gauntlet Match

I will do my best to keep up.

Entrants: Abyss, AJ Styles, Alex Shelley, “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal, Chris Sabin, Matt Morgan, Homicide, Scott Steiner, Consequences Creed, Rhino, Jeff Jarrett, Naito, Kurt Angle, Shane Sewell, Sheik Abdul Bashir, Booker T, Yujiro, “Showtime” Eric Young, Hernandez, Jeff Jarret (since he didn’t truely enter the match before), Samoa Joe

Abyss and AJ Styles are the first two entrants and they do have history. Styles goes after Abyss legs but Abyss is just too powerful. Abyss is in control as Styles’ punches aren’t doing much to the monster. Abyss hits Shock Treatment on AJ as Shelley comes out. Abyss powers down Shelley and Styles hits the forearm shot on Abyss. AJ starts to try to go after Alex Shelley. AJ regains control as Jay Lethal comes in. Jay Lethal is now going after Shelley and they trade shots going back and forth in opposite corners as we go to commercial.

Coming back out of commercial, We are told that Sabin came out and then Matt Morgan came out and he cleans house. Abyss hits the Black Hole Slam on Matt Morgan for the three count. Homicide then comes in and hits a series of suplexes and is in control. Everyone is fighting and exhausted as Scott Steiner comes out and takes out everyone as we go to commercial.

Coming out of commercial number 2, Consequences Creed enters as Homicide is eliminated. Lethal Consequences is working together as Rhino comes out. Rhino goes right after Scott Steiner, but no surprise there. Jeff Jarrett comes out, but Angle cuts him off to take him out. Angle grabs a chair and hits Jarrett’s arm. Naito of Team No limit comes into the cage next and hits a beautiful drop kick on Creed. Jarrett appears to have broken his arm. Naito is up on the top rope and misses the twisting Moonsault. Lethal hits the Lethal Combination on Alex Shelley and eliminates him. Angle comes in and makes Creed tap out and the follows with an Olympic slam on Chris Sabin and Jay Lethal, eliminating all three.

Coming out of the third commercial break, Naito was eliminated and Shane Sewell is in. Kurt Angle hits an Olympic slam on Sewell and eliminates him as Sheik Abdul Bashir comes out.

EY takes an Olympic slam and pins Eric Young for the three count. Rhino eliminates the Yujiro and Angle eliminates Rhino.  Hernandez comes out and now has to deal with Angle and Steiner. Super Mex is taking out Angle and Steiner. Hernandez is hit with another Olympic slam and eliminates him. Jarrett gets back into the ring since he didn’t get into the match intially. Jarrett rolls up Angle for a two count. Jarrett hits Steiner with The Stroke and pins him for a three count. Jarrett hits the stroke but the count is broken up by Steiner. Kurt Angle elminates Jeff Jarrett as Samoa Joe gets into the ring. Joe is hit with an Olympic slam but it doesn’t phase Joe. Samoa Joe hits the Muscle Buster and gets the pinfall. Joe and Angle will be the two captains at Lockdown. Incredible match period. The best match I have ever seen on Impact. 5 out of 5 stars.

JB is with Angle and he is obviously upset. He says Jeff Jarrett was eliminated multiple times.  He says that the MEM made a mistake and didn’t end Joe’s career.

Jim Cornette is being harassed by Don West about the whole Jarrett thing.

Samoa Joe says he is only interested in torturing the Main Event Mafia, and he will be bringing his knife to Lethal Lockdown.

Overall Promo: 4 out of 5. This was the best promo Impact I have seen in a while.

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Best Match: 20 Man Gauntlet

Worst Match: Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed vs The Beautiful People

Breaking News on TNA Lockdown

Posted in Match Cards, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2009 by biggman621

I was listening to 94.5WYSP to hear who Danny Bonaduce’s opponent will be at TNA Lockdown.

The  opponent of the former Partridge Family star is “Showtime” Eric Young.  This will be Bonaduce’s first match in his career.

The altercation started with Bonaduce saying he didn’t know who EY was and started talking down to him.  EY answered with a couple slaps to the face.  The two would fight and eventually be broken up as EY left the studio with Jeremy Borash, which is misspelled on the transcript.

Also, a Happy Birthday to Sting. The TNA champ is turning 50 today.
