TNA Impact TV report

by Jeff Hamlin

TNA Report 2.22
By Jeff Hamlin (jhamlin@wchl1360.com)

The Big News: Kurt Angle and Scott Steiner did a heated contract signing in one of the stiffest angles in a long time. Steiner delivered a head butt, and Angle followed with punches that made Steiner bleed hardway. Also, Jerry Lynn became the #1 contender for the X-Division title by winning a rushed ladder match.

The Elevation X match was pushed strongly to open the show. A.J. Styles climbed the scaffold and challenged anyone, claiming to have invented Elevation X. Rhino came out. Mike Tenay acted surprised. Considering Rhino’s feuded with Styles for months, I’m not sure why. As Styles bailed, Rhino climbed up and accepted the challenge for the March 11th PPV.

Team 3-D did an interview previewing tonight’s “Belting Pot Match” (basically a lumberjacks with straps match). Brother Ray tried to do in with an Italian accent. For some reason, I found it funny when Cousin Steve said “Blood runs deep with the Pizanos. Right D-Von?” You mean D-Von’s Italian, too?

Team 3-D defeated LAX in a Belting Pot Match. Several unidentified members of the Pizanos were in the 3-D corner, while unidentified members of the Latino Nation were in LAX’s corner. Homicide and D-Von spent the opening minutes of the match getting tossed out and beaten to a pulp with the straps. As Hernandez got whipped outside by the Italians, Homicide blasted D-Von from behind. After he recovered, Hernandez tried a tornado DDT, but D-Von powered out and made the usual hot tag to Ray, who hip tossed Hernandez, backdropped Homicide, a Samoan drop to Hernandez and an uranage to Homicide for a two count. D-Von recovered to give Homicide a reverse 3-D. D-Von and Hernandez both got knocked to the floor, and the lumberjacks got into the predictable brawl with each other. Cousin Steve ran in, and joined Ray in lifting Homicide’s leg for D-Von to deliver the Wazzup. Steve and Ray told D-Von to get the tables. Hernandez ran back in, only to get caught in the 3-D for the pin at 5:28. Solid match, and Cousin Steve was solid in his role. **3/4

Sting did an interview lying on a deathbed in the ring. It was more of a package. Watching this reminded me how much this company has missed David Sahardi’s video packages over the last few months. The highlight in the buildup to Sting-Jarrett was watching those tremendous pieces back in October. Here, Sting challenged Abyss to a Last Rites match at Elevation X, where the object is to strap your opponent to a deathbed. Sting told Abyss he can choose life and be a new man, but he has to die first.

They cut to the back where Jeremy Borash tried to get a word from Abyss (without James Mitchell). Abyss just moaned. Borash was about to send it back to Tenay, but before he could, Abyss choked him, and lifted him up in the air. They acted like Abyss was in pain because of Sting’s interview. Hey, it could have been Hemme.

Eric Young, Richard Roode and James Storm defeated the Voodoo Kin Mafia and Lance Hoyt in 2:00. Thankfully, they didn’t mention the Kip James/Christy Hemme program. VKM chant early. Not as much regarding Eric Young this week. He continued to be depressed about being under the control of Roode. Young and B.G. opened by dancing, and actually did a double-clothesline on Roode. Young acted like he didn’t mean it. Storm did the world’s first double-arm spinning neckbreaker as a transition move on B.G. That should be his finisher. Hoyt got the hot tag, gave Storm a flap jack and climbed the top rope. Roode crotched him, and Storm got the pin. Afterwards, Roode screamed at Young, while Chris Harris ran out of the crowd and chased Storm to the back.

Another Chris Daniels video aired, vowing to change from within.

Andre Rison did an interview in the ring. I was afraid he was going to announce the 1st annual Left Eye Memorial Burning Down the House match. Instead, he was there to promote his upcoming appearance on Pros vs. Joes. He was wearing an Indianapolis Colts jersey, which was his first pro team. Abyss came out. Rison stuck his hand out like a total dork. Abyss responded by giving him the Black Hole Slam. Rison sold it well. Considering he owed $127,000 in child support payments two years ago, I’d say he needed the money. Either that, or get ready to share a jail cell with Jake Roberts. (Gotcha! Didn’t say Dick Slater this week.)

The lame comedy segment of the show started with Ron Killings’ latest production, Rambuck Killings. If someone wants a lesson in how to make these segments funny, watch the King Booker/Queen Sharmel production from last week’s Smackdown. That’s wrestling humor at it’s best. Then again, there aren’t many wrestlers with the comedic touch of Booker.

The Paparazzi production was more of Paparazzi Idol. Jay Lethal did more Randy Savage impersonations. Here’s four minutes of this show that could have gone to the ladder match by the end of the show, but instead we got this. Suddenly, Killings rapping about trying to quit smoking didn’t seem like a bad idea.

Tenay and Jim Cornette came out for the Steiner/Angle contract signing. This was the highlight of the show. Cornette mentioned Christian Cage and Samoa Joe weren’t here this week because they were training for their upcoming title match. Steiner cut a promo about how he would take Angle’s gold medal and melt it, and said it was worthless. West chimed in that someone from Angle’s former employer said the same thing. Angle responded that Steiner came to TNA to rape the company out of every cent its worth. Why is it whenever Angle says “rape,” I have flashbacks to horrible Smackdown shows? Crowd was behind Angle for the first time in weeks, and this came off like a match people want to see. After each man signed the contract, they had a staredown, where Steiner threw a stiff headbutt, which opened Angle up. Angle responded with some hard forearms, clearly designed to get hardway blood. And he succeeded. Tomko did a run-in, followed by Cage, who I guess wasn’t training after all. The heels (who were never given the name Christian Coalition) triple teamed Angle, with Steiner getting in a belly-to-belly, and Cage railroading Angle with the NWA belt. Good angle, and it set up the PPV match well.

Samoa Joe did an interview previewing his match with Cage. It was almost a relief to see no Angle-Joe interaction this week, considering that program has been beaten to death.

Jerry Lynn won a five-way ladder match to become the number one contender for the X-Division title over Sonjay Dutt, Senshi, Jay Lethal, and The Austin Starr. It was a disappointment because they never had time to get going. They literally went straight to high spots, because that’s all they had time for. Dutt and Lethal worked as a team, doing the old Hardy Boys’ fistdrop/somersault splash combo on Lynn. Immediately, Lynn came back with a satellite head scissors on Lethal and a spinning backbreaker on Dutt. After barely selling it, Dutt did a dropkick on Lynn while running up the ladder. Lethal and Dutt did a double baseball slide into the ladder onto Starr and Senshi, who spent the early minutes of the match brawling on the floor. Dutt and Lethal followed with stereo pescados, as they went to a commercial. Yep, they interrupted the flow of this match, but gave us two minutes of Kevin Nash telling Lethal he was black. Mr. Backland came out on the ramp. Senshi tried a handspring elbow on Lynn, who reversed it into a powerbomb attempt, but Senshi countered into the Warrior’s Way. They lined three ladders in a row. Lynn got knocked off by Lethal. Dutt and Lethal climbed up one side, while Starr and Senshi climbed up the other. Senshi and Starr knocked each other down, while Lynn powerbombed Lethal and Dutt at the same time (which we really didn’t see). Lynn climbed up and got the X to win. Backland came to the ring, shook Lynn’s hand, and offered his hand to Starr, who threw his sweat on him instead. Starr tried to jump Backland from behind, but Backland put him in the crossface chicken wing to end the show.

SUMMARY: One of the better shows in awhile. If Steiner wasn’t so far past his prime, his match with Angle would come across as a bigger deal. But after months of throwing a thousand angles against the wall, this contract signing is the one that finally stuck.

I was quite impressed with this weeks impact, it seemed to flow better than most of the recent impacts.

I just wish that management would relinquish this obbession that they have with having everyone on the show in an hour, as well as storyline development, No wonder Russo is getting frustrated, (its been said over and over but) they need two hours, or in fact what i think would be more beneficial at this time a second weekly show. (this is something i thought of yesterday)

You give them a second show and then you have a way to create easy tension and suspense. I mean Sexxy jake will know about how good it was int he uk when you could watch RAW on a friday night be left with a great piece of suspense about what the hell was gonna happen on smackdown the next day. If TNA had two shows they could leave Impact with a big moment that we wouldnt have to wait a week to resolve. Plus you could leave talent off one and put them on the other and switch them around to create a more interesting structure to the show.

(thats quite a mess of a paragraph)

But Yea as far as this weeks impact goes, liked it alot more than i have the last two. Didnt like the 6 man tag, it seemed like a complete waste of time. and could have been saved for next week and minutes could have been added to the ladder match. I did enjoy how pissed off both steiner and angle seemed during that signing and how stiff the whole thing seemed just brutal.

IS it me or did there seem to be alot of swearing that was bleeped out last night as well??

lmao, oh man you totally beat me to the punch Sexxy Jakey I was thinking all yesterday about why there wasn't an Impact aftermath thread and I was coming on here this morning to make one but damn, you got there before me.

I personally found last nights iMPACT to be great, the promos were good, the matches were good, and although they clearly didn't give enough time for the X Division ladder match, it still was decently good.

I'm really looking forward to next weeks iMPACT, damn TNA needs a 2-hour show.

So last nights iMPACT! was damn good I thought. I really enjoyed all of the matches, as Jarrett's desicison to make television matches longer is already showing it's merits. The 6 man tag was pretty good, entertaining definately. I'm getting sick and tired of the god damn Roode company ordering around Eric Young, it's a very idiotic storyline along the lines of something WWE would do. Also, I am sick and damn tired of the Paparazzi Productions, it was okay when it was first introduced, but damnit its run its course get rid of it.

I really enjoyed the Tomko v. Samoa Joe match, I thought it was great when Abyss came in at the end and just wiped everybody out.

Overall this show was even better than last weeks, iMPACT and TNA just keep getting better and better man.

Abyss really surprised me. I seriously thought he was playing babyface by sort of scaring Cage, Steiner, and Tomko out of the ring like that and then attacking Joe? I like that. I only saw from the part where they attack D-Von's trainer but I wish that for once, LAX wouldn't go over and beat up the Dudleyz because LAX is getting cheered and they're getting major heat for it.

Default Impact aftermath and review thread - 8/3/07

Quote:
Credit: PWTorch.com

We open with a recap of Samoa Joe losing to Tomko last week. Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe were then in the ring to start the show. Angle said Steiner's ass is his at the PPV. He then said Christian wouldn't be going through the back door on him like he did to Joe last week. Angle said he's going to be Joe's biggest fan at Destination X when Joe beats Christian Cage for the NWA Title. He then said Joe and himself can solve their issues when that happens. Angle called out Christian and Steiner, then Christian, Tomko, and Steiner came out. Christian reminded Angle that they're an inseparable family: the Christian Coalition. The fans paid tribute to Steve Austin with the "What?" chants. Christian then told Angle and Joe to find themselves a tag partner so they can't say the odds were stacked against them when they kick their asses later in the match. So far, the bleep count on "ass" is about five or six. Network for men, right? More like PBS. Angle then said he has a partner in mind that might be a little crazy. He teased that they would find out who the person is later in the show. Joe, the #1 Contender to the NWA Title, gets no speaking parts in the opening segment.

The usual Impact intro aired, then Tenay plugged two other six-man tag matches on the show tonight.

1 -- B.G. JAMES & KIP JAMES & LANCE HOYT vs. SEROTONIN (KAZARIAN & BENTLEY & DEVINE)

Tenay let us know that Raven has re-named his group Kaz, Martyr, and Havoc. Kip took a chop block from Bentley to start the match, then Kaz tagged in and took a weak Ace Crusher from Kip. The announcers talked about everything else but the match, then Hoyt tagged in and cleared Serotonin. He then gave Havoc (Devine) a "Texas Tornado" slam from the fireman's carry position for the win. This time, B.G. gets no ring time. Afterward, Raven walked to the ring and caned all three men.

WINNERS: James Gang in 2:00. I'm sorry, but how is Raven caning three men who have one victory in 2007 going to sell a PPV? Ridiculous waste of time. (1/4*)

Borash was backstage and found Christian Coalition for a promo. Christian wanted to know who Joe and Angle's partner is. Steiner, didn't know, which led to him and Christian forcing an exchange about the Hunchback of Notre Dame. And you think I'm making this up. Christian said he thinks their partner is Abyss, then he discussed strategy with Steiner. This brings up the issue of why Christian and Steiner are discussing strategy in front of the camera when Angle and Joe are presumably watching on the monitors backstage. Steiner bailed, then Tomko said he would help Christian when he gets his NWA Title shot. Tomko left, then Christian told Borash that they need to go find Abyss. Borash said he has to go to the ring.

[Commercial Break]

[Q2]

We saw a video package on Elevation X featuring Styles vs. Rhino.

Tenay was in the ring with Borash, Leticia, and the lovely So Cal Val to present an award to Hector Guerrero. As Hector walked out, West did a voice-over complementing Hector on his accomplishments as part of the Guerrero family. Hector thanked TNA and Eddie for inspiring him. He cut a promo in Spanish, then Val was about to present him with a plaque, but Abyss's music interrupted. Abyss walked out and West, again, had to carry the broadcast alone. Once Abyss entered the ring, Hector dropped his jacket and stared him down. Val then slowly handed the plaque to Abyss, who accepted it before giving Val the Black Hole Slam. He posed for the hard camera. Again, I'm not seeing how this segment is selling a PPV match with Sting.

We saw a pre-tape promo exchange from Samoa Joe and Christian Cage about their title match at the PPV.

[Commercial Break]

Tenay then recapped Abyss giving Val the Black Hole Slam before the break.

They suddenly went back to Cornette's office where random people were screaming and hollering. Cornette granted James Storm & Jackie Moore a double bull rope match against Petey Williams & Gail Kim. Cornette then addressed Chris Sabin, who was doing the old man gimmick. He gave Sabin a two-out-of-three falls match against Jerry Lynn. Backlund jumped onto Cornette's office and wanted to know if he could special referee the Austin Starr vs. Senshi match. Cornette rejected that offer, then said the match could only be won by using the Chicken wing. Backlund left, then we saw Christy Hemme sitting in the corner waiting for her turn. She said she said she wanted VKM at the PPV. Cornette made some sexist jokes, then Christy said she had a surprise team to face VKM. Cornette gave her the match, then shooed her away. And Leticia just stood there the whole time holding the mic.

2 -- SONJAY DUTT & JAY LETHAL & PETEY WILLIAMS vs. ERIC YOUNG & ROBERT ROODE (w/Ms. Brooks) & JAMES STORM (w/Jackie Moore)

Tenay talked about Lethal's "character development," then Dutt asked Lethal to do a Savage impersonation. He did a brief impersonation at Young's encouraging, but Roode jumped him from behind. Young then did a Hogan-like slow walk towards Lethal, who accepted a handshake. So, the match is based around TNA wrestlers having no unique personalities, and trying to "develop character" by imitating former wrestlers.

[Q3]

The match broke down at 3:00, then Petey hit a slingshot huracanrana onto Roode on the outside. Gail Kim then came to ringside and brawled with Moore. Back in the ring, Storm gave Dutt a superkick for the win. Afterward, the camera focused on Gail vs. Jackie before the men broke up the fight.

WINNERS: Roode & Storm & Young in 4:00. Inconsequential match trying to get in too many things at once. WWE has stepped up its quality of programming the last few months, while TNA is content doing the same running gags that don't work. TNA is apparently content with status quo right now, otherwise they would be raising their level of play. (3/4*)

Suddenly, we went backstage where Christian and Borash found Abyss rocking back and forth in a chair while staring at a picture of James Mitchell. Christian reminded Abyss that he kept Abyss's secret, but Sting blurted it out. Abyss nearly ripped Christian's throat off at the mention of "Sting". Christian said Sting is just like Angle and Joe because they all look at Abyss like a piece of meat. He told Abyss that he's a friend to him and he'd like to help him out. Abyss calmed down, then Christian said he brought a peace offering. He nodded toward Borash, then Christian grabbed Borash and threw him to Abyss, who slammed him into the wall before locking him inside a temporary cage. Christian was great here with his Gob-like demeanor.

[Commercial Break]

We came back for footage of LAX beating down Brother Ray last week. Devon then cut a pre-tape promo challenging LAX to a ghetto brawl where any weapons go. Ray said they would keep fighting LAX until they finally have revenge.

Tenay and West, with his heavy breathing, plugged the Destination X card.

We saw a video package on Sting vs. Abyss in the Last Rites match. Sting told Abyss not to choose death now that he doesn't have the devil (Mitchell) in his ear any longer.

Scott Steiner, then Christian Cage and Tomko came to the ring for the main event.

[Commercial Break]

[Q4]

Samoa Joe came to the ring and Tenay talked about Joe's quest for the NWA Title. It sounded like completely empty words since the focus of the show has been nowhere close to Joe's title quest without a new video package, no interview with Joe, and too many other angles muddying the water on the show. Angle came out, then Rhino showed up as Joe and Angle's tag partner.

3 -- KURT ANGLE & SAMOA JOE & RHINO vs. CHRISTIAN CAGE & SCOTT STEINER & TOMKO

They fought on the outside to start the match. Back in the ring, Joe gave Steiner an atomic drop followed by boot to the face and sentaun splash. Joe then caught Christian with a sidekick to the head before Christian sent him to the outside. Angle picked up where Joe left off and gave Christian a European uppercut. As Rhino set up for the Gore on Tomko at 2:00, A.J. Styles hit the ring in street clothes. Rhino cleared him to the outside, though. Styles then climbed the Elevation X structure and Rhino chased him up top. They cut to a break.

[Commercial Break]

Back from the break, the "dream six-man tag match" that all of 30 minutes of build-up continued with Christian holding Rhino in a chinlock. Tenay thanked the tens of thousands who voted in the Styles or Rhino text messaging poll. Considering they're following "American Idol", which has millions of millions of people voting for their contest, Tenay just made the company sound completely minor league. Angle took a hot tag at 8:00 and gave the Tomko and Steiner a series of German suplexes. He then gave Christian a belly-to-belly suplex. The action broke down and Angle put Steiner in the Anklelock, but Tomko gave him a big boot. Rhino then gored Tomko, but Christian caught Rhino with the Unprettier. Joe then took Christian to the corner and gave him the Muscle buster. Steiner and Joe then faced off with Steiner giving him a belly-to-belly suplex. Angle then took a turnaround belly-to-belly suplex and Steiner put him in the Steiner Recliner, but Angle slipped out and hit the Olympic Slam. He followed with the ankle lock before Abyss hit the ring and jumped Angle to give us yet another No Contest in a main event prior to a PPV.

Angle and Abyss fought center ring before Abyss gave Angle the Black Hole Slam. The lights went down and up, then we saw two different Stings sting atop each entrance tunnel. Suddenly, the real Sting was in the ring standing behind Abyss. He attacked Abyss as the show faded to a video package complete with more heavy metal and screaming and yelling.

WINNERS: No Contest in 10:00. Just way too much happening in one match trying to sell a PPV in three days. The finishing sequence was fine to give viewers a taste of "non-stop action" before the PPV, but none of it mattered when the focus at the end was on Sting vs. Abyss. It just amazes me how horrible of a job they've done building up Joe these last four weeks, and they made matters worse by digging into the NWO bag-of-tricks for the "multiple Sting" trickery at the end. On a show that featured X Division wrestlers trying to imitate other wrestlers, it was only fitting that TNA's writers tried to imitate one of the most successful angles of the Monday Night Wars era, but completely botch it in the process by doing a five-minute show-closing angle in ten seconds. Conspiracy theorists who say Vince Russo is trying to sabotage TNA have new material to work with this week because 99 percent of wrestling fans watching this show and last week's show could have come up with better ideas to sell a PPV. (*1/4)
I dont agree with alot of the Comments on those results.

Because i thought this weeks impact was brilliant, just the right amount of chaos going into a PPV and just a perfect blend of Action/Storyline, the only section i didnt like was the serotonin match... just not really digging there gimmick at the minute, maybe because they dont have the TV time to push it at the minute.

THE BLACK HOLE SLAM on so cal val made me happy though, looked proper brutal.

This weeks impact was one of the best so far.

I've got to say, that last night's iMPACT! was one of the best there have been in monthes. It was a great show all around, it really kind of reminded me of like some 1996 Raw or something like that, just how everything played out. A couple of very entertaining matches, a whole SHITLOAD of new matches made for the TNA PPV, and all kinds of proper build up for Destination X.

I've got to say that I wasn't sure whether or not to order this PPV until last night when they sold me on it, and now I'm very excited to see it. It should be a stellar show from what i've seen and will be expecting.

Thank God for TNA.

I hope Val's ok. She's my favorite wrestling lady. I think it's love. Great bump. I love it when Abyss deliver's the Black Hole Slam to somebody light, he always does it to Spud when he's in the U.K.

I thought the show was better than usual but it's still too rushed. Two hour's cant come soon enough.
