Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed vs Traci Brooks and Sharmell

This should be very interesting for lack of a better term. Saeed and Sharmell start by having a shoving match, and Brooks is tagged in. Saeed hits a big powerslam and drops an elbow. Saeed hits a suplex and covers for a two count. Brooks hits a clothesline on Saeed for a two count, and Traci uses the second rope to choke her. Saeed kicks her off and Kong is in. Kong hits a couple clotheslines and a couple splashes. Kong goes to the second rope and hits a splash. It would have been a three count, but Sharmell broke up the pin. Saeed tags herself in and pins Traci for the victory. Kong does not look happy after the match.

Booker T throws him onto the guard rail, but Storm is able to kick out of a pin attempt. Booker T lands an elbow shot and starts reigning knees. Booker T lands a few chops and Steiner chokes Storm with the ref’s back turned. Steiner is in again and he locks in a reverse chin lock on Storm. Storm runs into a belly to belly suplex, but is able to kick out at two. Booker T tags back in and hits a high leg kick, but Roode is in to break up the count.

Andrew “Test” Martin Tragedy

Posted in News, Wrestler Spotlight with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 14, 2009 by biggman621

This came in from wrestlinginc:

Andrew “Test” Martin was found dead in his condo yesterday.  His cause of death is unknown, but an autopsy of the body will be conducted, so we should have a cause in the near future.

Martin was a good wrestler in the WWE and TNA who is best known for his relationship with Stacy Keibler and his tag team with Albert (A-Train).  He will be sorely missed.

My condolenses to the Martin family, former girlfriend Kelly Kelly, and all who knew him.

Fan Protest and a TNA note

Posted in Match Cards, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2009 by biggman621

This came in from wrestlinginc:

Fans at a Florida Championship Wrestling event erupted with a “Colt Cabana” chant during a ringside segment.  The chant was a result of Cabana, or as the WWE named him, Scotty Goldman, being released.  The chants angered “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes as he turned to the fans and told them “he’s gone.”

Well, I do know one thing. Colt Cabana is back and the wrestling world is better for it.

In TNA news, the website is showing the next challengers for Beer Money Inc.’s “Off the Wagon” challenge.  The challenger’s will be LAX.  I know this won’t happen, but wouldn’t it be interesting if LAX held every title (minus the Knockout Title) in the company?  Remember, they do have title shots for the X Division and Heavywieght Championship belts from Feast or Fired.

If LAX controlled the titles in the company, this could prove very interesting for the Frontline/ Main Event Mafia angle. Homicide and Hernandez have the credentials to be in both factions, and both factions will be selling themselves for them.  We will have to wait until Thursday to see what happens, but it sure is an interesting proposition.

This should be a good show. A street fight and the possible splitting of a faction will make this interesting. Also, a new promo evaluation will be factored in so take a look at that too.

Kurt Angle Promo: Tells Jeff Jarrett that the Main Event Mafia is being brought down from the inside, as Sting has done. Angle wants arena cleared so there is no distractions.

Motor City Machine Guns Interview:The Guns talk about the Street Fight, and it turns into a backstage brawl with Lethal Consequences.

Motor City Machine Guns vs Lethal Consequences Street Fight

This started during the interview and continued through the break. The Guns are in control and are isolating Jay Lethal. As Chris Sabin goes for a suicide dive, Consequences Creed hits him with a chair. Alex Shelley hits a reverse STO on Jay Lethal for a 2 count. A lot of action going on at once, very fun to watch. Sabin tries a Cradle Shock on Creed and Lethal counters into a Lethal Combination onto a chair. Creed gets with an over the shoulder belly to back piledriver from Shelley for a 2 count. Alex Shelley goes to hit Creed with the X Division Belt and ends up hitting Sabin. When Lethal Consequences tries to double team Shelley, Shelley counters Lethal’s clothesline and sends him over the top rope onto a ladder. Creed goes for the TKO and gets hit with Shelley’s X Division Title Belt which gets the guns the 3 count. The match was a ton of fun to watch. A great match to start off the show. 4 out of 5 stars.

Management Promo: Angle and Sting will get the match they want.

Main Event Mafia Promo: Angle calls out Booker T and he leaves because he is upset. AJ Styles attacks Booker and is setting up a Title Match. Promo is pretty good, but I don’t know if they are trying to have AJ as a heel.

Beer Money Inc. issues the Off The Wagon Challenge: Loser Leaves TNA

“Palin”, Taylor Wilde, and Roxxi Interview: Beautiful people annoy everyone. Not a good promo.

Therapy Session with Abyss: I already told everyone about my suspicion with Dr. Stevie being former WWE star Steven Richards. This segment provides an odd look from inside Abyss’s mind.

6 Man Tag Match: Brutus Magnus, Sheik Abdul Bashir, and Matt Morgan
vs LAX and Shane Sewell

I don’t know what to expect from this match. I understand the connection between Sewell and Bashir, but there isn’t one as of right now between LAX and Morgan and Magnus. The match started with Bashir and Homicide, with quick tags to everyone except Hernandez. Sewell is being isolated in the corner as Morgan, Magnus, and Bashir hammering away at him. Sewell finally gets a tag to Hernandez and he cleans house. Hernandez hits the border toss on Bashir and tags in Shane Sewell, who hits a top rope elbow for the 3 count. This was another good match, although I had couple issues. First, Magnus came off as a chump. He looked extremely weak in everything he did, which is a problem if you run a strong and powerful offense. I felt like LAX wasn’t as big a part of the match as they needed to be. It was a shame because they are a GREAT tag team and they deserve a bigger push. 2.5 out of 5 Stars.

Hardcore History with Mick Foley: This segment is one of my favorite things with TNA. It really provides some perspective in the industry.

Scott Steiner Interview: Samoa Joe doesn’t threaten him, and he will beat him. Joe comes in and holds the bar against his sternum, and says my favorite Joe line, “Joe’s gonna kill you.

Sojourner Bolt Interview: Bolt says she earned her shot and takes it seriously. Raisha Saeed interrupts, and it makes things awkward.

Angelina Love w. Velvet Sky and Cute Kip vs Taylor Wilde w. Roxxi and “Palin”

Love doesn’t waste any time as she goes after Wilde immediately. Taylor Wilde gains control and gets tripped by Cute Kip. Kip gets thrown out of ringside, which may give Taylor Wilde the edge. Love has control and keeps pounding away at Wilde, which is good enough for a few 2 counts. Wilde hits the Lights Out but the ref is out of the ring. As Love argues with the ref, Wilde rolls her up in a small package for the pinfall victory. Not a terrible match, but not the best of the night. 2 out of 5 Stars.

Interview with Sting: Sting says that he wanted to be champion and Angle is jealous. Angle can do whatever he wants.

Rough Cut: This Rough Cut is about the Ultimate X match. Everyone says that the match is extreme and defines the X Division. I personally love that match

Beer Money Inc. (c) vs Eric Young and Petey Williams (reuniting of 1/2 of Team Canada)

The challengers come out to the Team Canada music and with their Team Canada jackets. Beer Money Inc. comes out with the same props as last week, the beer goggles and the cooler cart. I would like to take this time to remind everyone that if the challengers lose, the person pinned must leave the company forever. Petey Williams and James Storm start the match. Williams is in control early and tags in Young. The really interesting thing about the match is that the only two members of Team Canada in the match are Coach Scott D’Amore and A-1. I have to admit I really hate when Jacqueline interferes. It is just a cheap transition that I think would be better if it came from Robert Roode.

Coming out of the commercial break, Storm and Roode are isolating Young in the corner. Eric Young tries to fight out of it, but to no avail. Roode is tagged in but Young fights back and tries to tag in Williams, but Beer Money interferes again. Williams finally gets a tag in and only gets a two count after all of the beatings. Williams and Young tried to Superplex Storm but Roode powerbombs both of them. Williams goes for a Canadian Destroyer on Jacqueline, which allows Storm to hit Williams with the Last Call and to get a 3 count. This loss means Petey Williams is gone from TNA. Williams is tearing up and the whole moment is touching. Petey Williams is a great wrestler and it is such a shame that he won’t be a part of TNA anymore. Great match with a sad ending. Good luck to Petey Williams and all of his future endeavors.
4 out of 5 stars.

Team 3D and Rhino Interview: Rhino and Team 3D talk about the fight between Sting and Angle. Then, the conversation goes into a possible strip club visit. Well I never said wrestling was classy, did I?

Kurt Angle vs Sting in a Empty Arena Fight- No Ref, No Rules, No one except cameras and commentators

This whole idea is interesting because of the eerie atmosphere with no one else there. The match will be more like a fight shot as a documentary. Sting and Angle throw punches early and take the fight all over the Impact Zone. Sting seems to have an answer for every attack that Angle has. The fight goes towards the top of the Impact Zone, and Angle is thrown off the top. Angle just keeps coming and just as Kurt gets momentum, Sting cuts him off. Angle begs for mercy and he apologizes, but it isn’t good enough. Nash and Steiner break it up with Nash freaking out and telling the two to shake hands. Sting reiterates Nash’s speech and Angle shakes his hand. This action leads to Angle spitting in Sting’s face and a commercial break. This terrible commercial break timing goes up with everyone that ever happened on Deal or No Deal. 3 out of 5 stars.

Coming out of the break, they show a highlight package of the fight. Sting takes the mic and says that no one spits in his face. Kurt Angle is talking to Nash saying he wants Stings title at Destination X.

Overall Promo Rating: 2.5 out of 5
Best Promo: Team 3D and Rhino
Worst Promo: Sojourner Bolt

Overall Rating: 3.1 out of 5 stars
Best Match: Tie: Beer Money Inc (c) vs Eric Young and Petey Williams/ Motor City Machine Guns vs Lethal Consequences Street Fight
