Lauren catches up with Shane Douglas and says that he has some things to take care of and he plans on leaving his mark.

Suicide and Christopher Daniels vs Kiyoshi and Sheik Abdul Bashir

Bashir and Daniels start of the match as Daniels gets control early. A calf kick gets a two count as Daniels tags in to Suicide. Daniels hits a gutwrench suplex and Suicide hits a top rope leg drop for a two count. Kiyoshi gets tagged in and hits a flap jack for a two count. Bashir is tagged in and the two trade shots. A scoop slam by Bashir gets a one and Kiyoshi is back in. Kiyoshi hits a couple big shots. but Suicide counters with a Tazplex. Suicide tags in Daniels and clears the ring. Bashir and Kiyoshi try a double team move, but Daniels hits a bulldog/ stunner combination. Suicide hits a big springboard crossbody.Suicide is attacked by Lethal Consequences and the Guns, taking him out of the match. Daniels hits a power move, but Shane Douglas comes in and hits Daniels with a chain. Bashir throws the ref in the ring as Kiyoshi gets the pinfall victory. It didn’t have the same pop as the opening match of weeks past, but still an ok match. 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Shane Douglas is in the middle of the ring and he says it isn’t personal, just business. He loves TNA, but he never got a second chance while Daniels did. He wants to know where is his second chance. He tells TNA management and he demands his second chance. He says that he will make Daniels’ life miserable until he gets it. Continue reading

Samoa Joe Update

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on June 3, 2009 by biggman621

At a TNA house show earlier this week, Samoa Joe tore his tricep and broke a couple of fingers. In an update on his injury, he posted on his twitter account that he will be at Slammiversary come “hell or high water.” This could be looked at one of two ways: 1) he needs to really reconsider his stance since he is only going to hurt himself more, or 2) maybe he won’t need a lot of time off to repair both injuries, especially since we don’t know how bad the tear is.

Either way, Joe will be at Slammiversary.

In other TNA news, Samoa Joe suffered a torn tricep and a few broken fingers at a show in Boise. This could put Joe’s shot at being in Slammiversary in serious jeopardy. More to follow….

Sting comes out to the ring with the rest of the Main Event Mafia behind. Sting talks about the changes that he will be bringing to the family. He said that some have forgotten the focus of the MEM and he will guide them to the original goal they had. Sting asks if everyone has stayed the course.
