Default Re: TNA: Changing The Face Of Pro Wrestling

February 13th 2006

Another good PPV last night. Itís easy for to sit here and right down ideas, itís hard for those guys to go out there and make it work.

Michaels & Hoyt over The Naturals: This gimmick is very hit or miss. Either fans will embrace the fact that they are about to re-witness Shawn Michaels during his prime through Shane Michaels or they are going to shit all over it. IF, and this is a HUGE if, all the pieces fall into place, everyone will walk away happy. Until then, I have another solid team that could easily hold the Tag Team titles. Solid pre-show match from these guys, just sucked it was on the pre-show.

Joey Styles Debut: A good move that not many saw coming. Styles adds another known voice to the booth and takes away from Don West, which was the goal all along. We may only be taking small time talent (Styles and Dreamer) from WWE but they are somebody and WWE has to recognize that.

The Degenerates over The New Crew: Iíve got to move these guys away from each other. The Outlaws can be a legit tag team and Waltman can help the X Division. Konnan is more or less done in the ring and will just be a manager for the team of Killings and his new partner. The match itself was a nice brawl. I liked the Todd Bertuzzi spot on BG although most people wouldnít have caught that.

Sting Interview: Decent interview by Sting. He just hyped the Main Event and thatís all I wanted him to do I guess. Nothing stands out but thatís not always a bad thing.

Rhino over Monty Brown: Good brawl between these two. Iím torn on whether to continue it or to just let it go. Iíve got to make a decision on this by tonightís show though. I liked the spot where the table didnít break (which was a tough spot to pull off for those two big guys) and then Joeyís reaction about WWE pre-cut tables. Ending was nice with the Rhino Driver.

Chris Jericho Interview: Short interview by Jericho but continued the hype of the Main Event. Nice comment about ďStephanie On A PoleĒ match.

Americaís Most Wanted over Team 3-D & Team Canada: Good match here, odd concept. I donít know what I was shooting for with this concept but it came off good enough. Styles might have just foreshadowed a tag match of the next PPV.

Christian Cage Interview: More hype and a good moment at the end with the walk off and comeback. Also the glass ceiling reference was a nice comment.

Christopher Daniels, Jay Lethal & Chris Sabin over Petey Williams, Austin Aries, & Roderick Strong: Good X Division match right here. Lethal got worked over the entire match but ended up getting the win for his team. That Koji Clutch/450 Spot was sick and Iím glad nobody walked away seriously hurt after that. Now Iíve got a lot of X Division talent and only 1 belt to go around.

Raven Interview: More hype by Raven. Not always a bad thing.

Elix Skipper over AJ Styles: Another good X Division match. I was back and fourth on who should win this match but I like my final decision. It still kept AJ strong because he was distracted at the end but it made Skipper look good as well because AJ wasnít hit or anything like that. Again, two good X Division workers and only 1 belt to fight for.

Alex Shelley Interview: Good interview from Shelley. This is why I have to continue to push this guy in the X Division, he always delivers on the mic. He threw out the best lines of the night with ďI know Samoa Joe better than a cheeseburger knows his bellyĒ and ďIíve devised a total of 1,721 counters for every move that Samoa Joe has ever pulled off in his life.Ē Great stuff as usual from him.

Samoa Joe over Alex Shelley: Shelley dominated the match but Joe prevailed in the end. I didnít want Shelley to lose fully cleanly because I still want him in the title picture. Just a good match from these two and it made Shelley look strong and Joe look like itís going to take an army to beat him. Expect more things from these 2.

Jim Mitchell, Abyss, & Jeff Jarrett Interview: More hype and it showed that Abyss and Jarrett would be on the same page for the Main Event.

Christian Cage over Chris Jericho, Sting, Abyss, Raven, & Jeff Jarrett: First off, Abyss can take a fucking bump. Off a ladder through two-thumb tack covered tables is just insane. Also, I may not get along with the guy personally but kudos to Jarrett for taking the scaffold dive to the unprotected arena floor. Finally, Christian hitting the frog splash off the ladder on Abyss through a table was sick as well. Another moment I liked was Jericho taking the piŮata like beating. The triangle ladder spot was cool to see as well. All 6 men got real creative beyond my ideas with match and I could never take that away from them. The handcuffing of Raven and Sting was more foreshadowing to a future feud (a feud Iím just going to sit back and watch). The balancing act by Jericho and Christian and then just Christian was very good and really could screwed up the ending if they fell. Kudos to all 6 men in the match for putting it all on the line. Now, Iíve got to figure out where everyone goes from here.

So overall it was a good show but thereís always room for improvement. Now I decided to catch up on other wrestling news.

WWE upset at Joey Styles

Canít say I didnít see this coming. He left (with notice according to Styles) and then showed up at our PPV less than a week after being on Raw. I canít see why they would be that upset; Vince has been on his case for the longest time now.

Shawn Michaels looking for time off

Well this helps us in a way. Michaels is still a big name in wrestling and still one of the best in WWE. If they lose him for a period of time, it could cost them viewers and it will cost them a good wrestler. That in return could help us as people may turn to us to see ďThe New Shawn MichaelsĒ.

Backstage heat on CM Punk

RELEASE HIM! God if WWE releases him I would be the happiest man alive. How could I pass up getting one of the best all around workers in the business? Plus Iíve got guys like Joe, Styles, and Daniels to convince him to come to TNA. Iíll be keeping a close eye on this situation.

Thatís really all the important stuff. WWE also released some workers but nobody I had interest in. Now, I had a bookers meeting where the time had come for me to look at ďThe SlipsĒ

My Comments: For those who care the ďRemember, Remember, The 15th Of SeptemberĒ comment from Raven was a play off of ďRemember, Remember, The 5th Of NovemberĒ from the movie V For Vendetta. I recommend that movie to everyone who has yet to see it, itís awesome. Also the ďPre-Cut TableĒ comment by Styles was taken from Styles himself who said that at a ECW event during their dying days. Just thought I would throw those things out there because I donít deserve full credit for them.

Edit: I feel bad for not including this orignally but it was just a brain lapse. Thanks to everyone for the comments and ratings on the PPV. It's going to be a tough act to follow with expections seeming high right now. I'll try not to disappoint. Again, thanks for the comments and ratings and I should have thanked everyone earlier, that's my bad.

Nice PPV. I'll give it a short review

Matches: 8/10 Great PPV event. I just thought the Tag Team Triple Threat Match was a bit boring at times.

Lenghth: 10/10 RIght lenght for a great PPV event

Spelling: 10/10 Didn't see any.

Overall: 9/10. Your best PPV yet, IMO. I though the Triple Threat Tag match brought it down but it was a great PPV nonetheless.

February 13th 2006

TNA Bookers Meeting

I sat down at the table with Jarrett, DíAmore, Borash, Tenay, and Taylor. I looked around at everyone and Jarrett was the first to chime in.

Jarrett: Open them

Me: Open what?

Jarrett: Donít play game with me kid. Open the damn slips

I reached into my pocket.

Me: ShitÖI must have left them at home.

Jarrett: Well you better get your ass up, get in your beat up car, drive your ass home, get the slips, and come back.

Me: Jeff calm down, Iím just kidding.

Jarrett: This is no laughing matter kid. I want to know what names are on those slips.

Me: Well without further adoÖ

DíAmore: Wait

Jarrett: Scott, whatís the hell is more important than those slips?

DíAmore: Well for one, the future of upcoming storylines and two, the future of the names on the slips.

Me: Scott, I canít move ahead until I know who we need to cut. I donít want to push somebody and then come to find out everyone wants him gone.

Jarrett: Open the slips now.


I opened the first slip and read off the names

Me: Shark Boy, Apolo, and Kevin Nash

I looked at the faces in the room and came to the conclusion that the slip had belonged to Tenay. I read off the second slip.

Me: Shark Boy, Gail Kim, Johnny Devine

I looked at the faces and DíAmore was not happy when I read off Devine. I tried to match the face with the slip but it wasnít working. I read off the next slip.

Me: Apolo, A1, Simon Diamond

I again looked at the faces but came up with nothing. I read off the next slip.

Me: Simon Diamond, Shark Boy, David Young

I realized reading faces was not my specialty. Maybe thatís why Jericho and Christian are always begging me for poker games. I read off the fifth slip.

Me: Jeff Hardy, Kevin Nash, Apolo

I knew that slip had belonged to me. I had read off the final slip.

Me: Jerry Lynn, Sonjay Dutt, Sabu

I knew right away that Jarrett wrote that slip.

Me: First things first. Out of all those names read; Lynn, Sabu, and Devine are going nowhere. Jerry Lynn helps out the X Division guys far to much for me to release him. Any X Division match we put on, Lynn has a hand in it. Whether it be putting together a chain of things or planning out one big spot, Lynn helps those guys out. Sabu has been inactive but with good reason. I gave him the time off because of all his hard work throughout the years. He will return in the near future. Devine stays because I like him in Team Canada. Scott is the talker, Roode and Young make a great team, Petey is the X Division guy, and Devine is the interference guy and both he and I like that role after coming off the operation he just had. Every other name I read off is up for debate. Iím looking to release 5 guys max. Hereís what I want everyone to take into consideration: How much they make, how much they currently do, how much they can do, and how easy it is to book them and be effective with the booking. So, discuss.

Jarrett: Kevin Nash stays. Heís a good friend of mine and he has great name value. Heís not going anywhere.

Me: Honestly, I donít care about your friendship. Business is first right now. Nash makes too much money to sit at home and collect a check. We try to bring him back and he just gets hurt. Also, we have plenty of name value now to where we can release him. Guys like You, Christian, Sting, and Jericho will bring in enough of the older fans to help us out. Also with the man weíre bringing in tonight, he will bring in older fans.

DíAmore: Iíve got to agree with the kid. Nash is making more than guys like Styles, Joe, Daniels, Abyss, Shelley, and others. Yet they bust their ass for us while Nash does nothing.

Jarrett: But when heís healthy, he delivers. Remember our match last year at Against All Odds?

Me: Yeah, one year ago. What has he done since then? He put on a pretty bad match with Kip. TNA tried to book him at Lockdown and he was injured the night before the PPV. TNA tried to book him at Bound For Glory and he was injured again the night before the PPV. Heís wrestled two matches in one year and heís been booked twice but failed to compete. All this time and he still collected a nice paycheck. So, majority vote. Raise your head if we should cut Nash.


Everyone but Jarrett raised their hand.

Me: Ok, for now, heís gone. Anyone else?

Tenay: Apolo seemed to be mentioned a few times.

Me: Well when Konnan said he was cutting the dead weight, he was talking about Apolo. Apolo knew this, Konnan knew this, and I knew this.

Tenay: So does that mean heís already gone?

Me: Not necessarily. If you guys can think of something for him to do after The New Crew drops him, throw out some ideas.

Borash: What about a feud with The New Crew?

Me: That would require me to team Apolo up with 2 new guys against a pretty established team. I honestly donít feel like wasting my time with that. So, majority vote.


Everyone raised their hand.

Me: For now, heís gone. Anyone else?

Borash: Shark Boy was on the list a number of times.

Me: Hereís the thing with Shark Boy. I like him personally and I like what he does in the ring. The problem is that heís been built so much as a jobber that I canít give him a rub at this moment. I donít want to keep him because of personal reasons though.

Jarrett: Exactly, you wouldnít let Kevin stay just because we are friend, so I say Shark Boy goes.

Me: Back up your reason and I may agree.

Jarrett: Heís a jobber. Thatís what heís done his entire career in TNA. Heís nothing but a comedy character who wonít make it here or in WWE. Let him go to the indies.

Me: Majority vote.


4 people raised their hand.

Me: Ok, gone for now. Thatís 3 gone so far, which leaves room for 2 more.

Jarrett: Sonjay Dutt.

Me: What about him?

Jarrett: Release him.

Me: Man Jeff, thatís a hell of an argument but I think Iím going to pass on that.

Jarrett: Heís turned into nothing but a jobber as of late. Youíre pushing guys like Strong, Aries, and Lethal over him. I canít even remember his last match and whatever it was, it was probably a squash.

Me: Thatís better. The thing is, Sonjay has a lot to offer. And if I could actually find a way to book him, he could be huge.

Jarrett: But you canít find a way to book him. And you said it yourself, take into consideration future booking.

Me: Fine, weíll go with a majority vote.


Sadly, there was no majority, the room was split 3 to 3.

Me: Weíll toss Sonjay aside for now and come back if needed. Finally, Jeff Hardy. He has let this company down time and time again. I donít care about his merchandise sales. Weíve got Christian Cage, Chris Jericho, Sting, Samoa Joe, and AJ Styles merchandise in the works. I promise you that they will all out sell Hardy. I have no booking plans for him and I donít want to book him. So he can either sit at home and collect a check like Nash or we can free up more money. Majority vote.

Everyone actually agreed with me. I guess they were sick of Hardy as well.

Me: Ok, thatís 4 names gone. I honestly donít see the need in releasing anyone else. Guys like Dutt, Young, Kim, and A1 make nothing and could help the company if we can get bumped up to a 2 hour show. As a note, I talked to Simon Diamond last night before the PPV and asked him to be a road agent for the company. I told him that I didnít have booking plans for him but I felt that he could help out some younger guys with his knowledge. He agreed and we settled a deal. So for now, heís staying. Anyone else want to comment on the releases?

Nobody spoke up so for now, everything was settled. After that, we discussed the build up to Destination X. Thatís right, I couldnít get the rights to Starcade so the PPV name remained Destination X. I could have legally battled it but decided against it. It was now up to me to remove the sour taste of last years Destination X.

My Comments: Thanks for the review RatedR, Iíve been reading up on yours but with 34 pages, itís tough to get caught up. Iíll start hitting you with reviews when I feel ďin the mixĒ. Backstage at the Primetime Special could be up today (Tuesday) but Wednesday at the latest

Simon Diamond has been a Road Agent in TNA for awhile now, since before you started this thread. Just a heads up.

I sort of knew that but wasn't positive since he still appeared on screen managing DITR. I thought I would make it official with this. Thanks though.

Yeah, nobody has been officially released as of right now. The 4 names we voted on where who's most likely going to get released. Developments could happen backstage at the tapings (which will be up tonight) that could change some things around or what not (although, I wouldn't count on anything major happening).
