Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Destination X Feedback
Nice to see the focus of the show on the Ultimate X Match. Makes sense since it's Destination 'X'.
Quite surprised by the booking of the first match. Beer Money and Generation Me had quite a bit of animosity against each other, and in the end, Beer Money not only wins cleanly, but also shakes their hands. Face turn I guess?
Lockdown promo already? Nice to see some buildup already considering it's one of your bigger events.
Matt Morgan turns. Totally didn't see it coming, and lately, I haven't been too fond of this storyline, but I'm intrigued in seeing where this goes. Typical Anderson promo I'm guessing right after.
I loled at Dinero throwing a wad of cash on Rhino after he won. Guess this feud is basically done with. A few weeks ago, there was a lot of promise in Rhino with his "old TNA" promo, but lately, there hasn't been much from him. I'm hoping he gets something good after this or even more 'fire' to continue this feud with Dinero.
Hall is gone. Tbh, of Nash, Hall and Waltman, I would have liked Waltman to stay the most, but Nash brings the most to the table with his presence. Glad he's here to stay, and I'm anxious to see where you take him now.
I'm seeing a turn from either Bischoff or Hogan later on.
Hardy wins the #1 contendership, which means we'll see him against RVD this week? A good Hardy/Styles feud would be awesome. I know your a fan of Hardy, so let's see where you take him.
Some of these match times seem short. I know the four way and this Anderson/Sting match would be longer on a TNA pay-per-view. Anderson attacking afterwards only confirms an extension to this feud, which should be good. I'm guessing another gimmick added on to their eventual Lockdown match?
WOW. I'm completely surprised that you ended this whole storyline between Foley/Jarrett & Hogan/Bischoff. You kinda hinted at it, but didn't think it would happen. Totally weird to see it all end, and I'm guessing Foley will be gone for the next while as well.
This is the true main event. If the names were 'bigger', it would definitely be the main event, but the main event consists of two former X champs, which is amazing. Not a big ending to the match, but definitely nice to see Daniels win the match, and kind of 'cement' this reign. I'm presuming because Kazarian was the 2nd last guy in there, that he'll be the challenger in the next while. Awesome stuff here.
Hardy coming in right now only foreshadows that his match will be with Styles. Anderson challenging Sting to a steel cage match at Lockdown was quite weird considering every match at Lockdown is a steel cage match, right?
I really think that Samoa Joe should be out of the title picture now that he lost cleanly to Styles. Joe is no longer a title contender, while Styles should go on to face Hardy or RVD or the combination of them, which would be f'n awesome. Nonetheless, good stuff here.
For the most part, I liked the booking decisions, but others I wasn't too fond of mainly because it wouldn't be what I'd do =P. Show was good, but if it were full or even semi-full, it would've shown your booking talent much better. Can't really say anything else other then I'm looking forward to the shows leading up to Lockdown.

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
SHow looks pretty good here, Shocker. A lot of number one contender matches, which means a lot of feuds aren't going to be too personal, but the show still looks like it should be pretty good. GenMe vs. The Guns should be exciting, as should RVD/Hardy, while I'm happy to see you getting the knockouts onto Impact. You should also have a few good promos in store with Mr. Anderson's, Angle's and the World Elite stuff.
Looking forward to the show.

They agreed that if either man won, they'd wrestle for the right on Impact last week.

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
TNA Monday Night Impact
March 22nd, 2010
Universal Studios – Orlando, Florida
Impact opens with a recap video showing highlights of Destination X which took place last night, recounting the events of the majority of matches on the card, particularly the upper-card with the Ultimate X Match, Sting’s victory over Mr. Anderson, The Motor City Machine Guns’ triumph against Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley and AJ Styles’ successful defence of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe.
The opening video plays accompanied by ‘Change Me’ and the camera cuts into the Impact Zone as the pyro stirs and the camera pans the audience who are cheering and holding up their signs before cutting to the announce table where Mike Tenay and Taz are sat to welcome us to the show.
Mike Tenay: We are less than twenty-four hours removed from the X Division Showcase known as Destination X, and tonight for the first time ever in TNA, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam go one-on-one, with Hardy’s TNA World Heavyweight Championship shot next month at Lockdown on the line! Welcome to Impact everybody, I’m Mike Tenay alongside Taz and if anybody thought the excitement stopped last night, then they couldn’t be further from the truth!
Taz: You’ve got that right, Professor, Hardy and Van Dam is gonna be off the hook and you can be sure that the TNA World Heavyweight Champion ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles is gonna be watching VERY closely, because whoever wins the main event tonight will challenge AJ for the most prestigious title in professional wrestling next month in Dallas, Texas at the sixth annual Lockdown!
Mike Tenay: Plus, we will hear from ‘The Wrestling Machine’ Kurt Angle and he will undoubtedly summon ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair when Angle is in the ring, and also, the TNA Knockouts return to Impact! Angelina Love squares off against Daffney with the winner of that match challenging Tara for the TNA Knockouts Championship at Lockdown!
Taz: And speaking of Lockdown, ‘The War Machine’ Rhino faces ‘The Monster’ Abyss with the winner challenging ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero for the TNA Global Championship! Rhino had his chance last night and he blew it so I don’t think he deserves this match, but I’m pretty confident that Abyss can pull out the victory tonight.
Mike Tenay: Also tonight, The Motor City Machine Guns take on Generation Me, and in more tag team action, Consequences Creed and Suicide face Homicide and a mystery partner who Homicide said to me earlier today would shock the world. Who could it be?
Then, ‘Gold Metal’ plays and Kurt Angle walks out, getting a big pop from the crowd. Wearing a suit and a red tie, Angle walks down the ramp with his eyes fixed on the ring and when Kurt steps into the squared circle, Angle takes a microphone from SoCal Val and immediately begins to talk.
Kurt Angle: I was expecting to be in the main event of Lockdown next month, but it looks like that’s not going to happen now.
The crowd give a mixed reaction, unhappy that Angle isn’t in the main event but happy that Jeff Hardy is.
Kurt Angle: When my ladder match with Samoa Joe was announced, I made a mistake in thinking that I was destined to challenge for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, and as a result I told myself that I was going to bring an end to whatever the hell I had going on with Ric Flair.
Heat at the mention of Flair.
Kurt Angle: But now I don’t have anything going on at Lockdown, I sat down and I reflected on what’s happened over the past two months, and Ric Flair has almost killed my career. He’s cost me matches, he’s driven me over the limit and I’m not gonna stand for it any longer.
Cheers from the crowd.
Kurt Angle: Ric, I called you out a few weeks ago and all I got was Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff, but this time if you don’t come out here, I’m gonna go back there and drag your ass out to this ring myself, so Ric ... get out here, right – now!
Ask and you shall receive, Mr. Angle; ‘Also Sprach Zarathustra’ blares out to heat from the crowd and the cunning golden oldie Ric Flair struts out, with a grin on his face. Also wearing a suit with some shades, Flair advances down the ramp in typical fashion, entering the ring and taking a microphone before coming face-to-face with Angle.
Ric Flair: You wanna end it, Kurt?
Angle nods his head in response.
Ric Flair: Ya’ know, I never thought I’d hear ya’ say that, after all, being mentioned in the same sentence as me is the highest you’ve ever got in your career.
Angle shakes his head as the crowd boo Flair.
Ric Flair: You were the one who started this, I did a favour for AJ Styles ‘cause I saw a lot in that kid and he shot me down, but still ya’ blame ME for the fact that ya’ didn’t win the title at Genesis.
Kurt Angle: You bet your ass I do, Ric.
Flair slowly nods his head before continuing.
Ric Flair: If you were REALLY meant to win the title at Genesis, ya’ would have got the job done long before I got involved so the way I see it, you were just lookin’ for somebody to cover up your failure.
Heat for Flair, and Ric turns to the crowd who begin to chant ‘You suck!’
Ric Flair: SHUT UP!
Some of the fans laugh, but most of them continue to boo.
Ric Flair: Ya’ wanna put an end to this, Kurt? All ya’ have to do is shake my hand, man up and admit that your career has gone down the drain ‘cause of YOU, not ME!
Flair extends his hand to Kurt, and Angle looks around the crowd who chant ‘Don’t sell out!’ before Kurt continues to talk.
Kurt Angle: As far as doing anything like that goes ... as somebody I know once said, there is no chance in HELL!
Pop for Angle, as Ric’s eyes widen and he draws his hand back.
Kurt Angle: I’m not gonna do that, Ric, because firstly, none of that crap that came out of your mouth is true, and secondly, I’m not gonna let you feel that good about yourself, old man. I know that you’re sick of seeing me, and I’m sick of seeing you just as much, so if this is gonna end, then how about we end it at LOCKDOWN?!
Huge pop from the crowd, as Flair looks at Kurt curiously.
Kurt Angle: I know that you’re retired, and rightly so because if you ever faced me I would put you in a damn wheelchair and then I’d do even more to you, so here’s what I think; we settle this in LETHAL – LOCKDOWN!!
Another big pop, and Ric grins, liking this.
Ric Flair: That’s the first time I’ve ever heard ya’ talk any sense, so you’re on!
More cheers from the crowd.
Kurt Angle: You had better find yourself a team captain, ‘cause I’m gonna be in that Cage and you had better find the four best of the best in TNA ‘cause if you don’t, then Team Angle won’t even have to break a sweat in kicking all of their asses!
Flair shakes his head in disagreement.
Ric Flair: Ya’ see, that’s where you’re wrong, Kurt, ‘cause nobody’s gonna wanna roll with you ... they’d rather roll with THE LIMOUSINE RIDIN’ ... JET FLYIN’ ... KISS STEALIN’ ... WHEELIN’, DEALIN’ ... SON OF A GUN AND 16-TIME WORLD CHAMPION – ME! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
Heat for Flair, as he goes red in the face, and Angle laughs.
Kurt Angle: As far as limousine riding goes ... I think you’d be better off with an ambulance.
Angle drops the microphone, kicks Flair in the mid-section, and nails Flair with the ANGLE SLAM!! The crowd go nuts and ‘Gold Metal’ plays as Kurt gets to his feet and stands over Flair, shouting ‘YEAH!!!’ before picking up the microphone again, saying:
Kurt Angle: Oh, it’s real... IT’S DAMN REAL!!
The crowd pop as Angle drops his microphone, leaving the ring and storming up the ramp, not able to keep a grin off his face.
Mike Tenay: What a way to kick off Impact! We just found out that it’s gonna be Team Angle against Team Flair in Lethal Lockdown in Dallas, Texas next month, and Kurt Angle just fired the first shot at ‘The Nature Boy’ with that devastating Angle Slam!
Taz: It’s no secret that Ric Flair hasn’t made many friends in TNA since he came here so I’ll be surprised if anybody wants to be a part of Team Flair, Professor!
Mike Tenay: Lockdown’s already shaping up to be a monumental event, we’ve got Lethal Lockdown as well as the TNA World Heavyweight Championship match, AJ Styles will put the title on the line against either Jeff Hardy or Rob Van Dam, but who will it be? We’ll find out in our main event later tonight!
Back on Impact, Consequences Creed and Suicide are already in the ring and ‘We Are World Elite’ then blares out as Homicide walks out on his own and he then points to the entranceway for his partner to come out ... and it’s SHEIK ABDUL BASHIR!! The crowd boo Bashir, who has an ear-to-ear grin on his face, as the duo make their way down the ramp and enter the ring, standing opposite Creed and Suicide, who both look shocked (Well, Suicide probably is underneath his mask).
Tag Team Match
Consequences Creed & Suicide Vs Homicide & Sheik Abdul Bashir
The Impact Zone is still rattled from the return of Sheik Abdul Bashir to TNA and Bashir and Consequences Creed start the match as they lock up and Bashir kicks Creed in the mid-section, hitting him with a few right hands before Irish whipping him against the ropes. Creed comes running back and Sheik lies down on the canvas as Creed jumps over him and runs off the ropes again and Bashir springs back up, hitting Creed with an arm drag! Sheik holds onto his arm and then gets Creed in an abdominal stretch, but Creed fights out of it rather quickly and Irish whips Bashir into the corner of the ring. Creed runs at him but Sheik quickly climbs out onto the ring apron and Creed stops himself, but Bashir goes through the ropes and spears Creed in the mid-section as he back-pedals and Bashir then re-enters the ring, running at Creed and taking him down with a clothesline. Bashir quickly gets Creed back up and puts him in the corner of the ring, tagging in Homicide as Homicide stands in the middle of the ring bending down and Sheik Irish whips Creed towards Homicide, who looks like he wants to hit a back body drop but Creed counters it into a sunset flip and pins Homicide! 1............ 2............ Homicide kicks out! Homicide gets back up having survived that scare, and Credd gets up as well, running at him but Homicide kicks Creed in the mid-section and lifts him up, hitting Creed with a scoop slam and then climbing out onto the ring apron. Homicide jumps over the ropes and hits a leg drop which crushes Creed’s neck, subsequently hooking the leg and making the cover, 1............ 2............ Creed gets the shoulder up.
The match comes to an end with Sheik Abdul Bashir and Suicide in the ring and Suicide hits Bashir with a few forearms, then running off the ropes but Bashir kicks Suicide in the mid-section and then lifts him up in position for a scoop slam but instead hits a backbreaker, as Homicide climbs to the top rope, flying off the top and hitting Suicide with a double-foot stomp to the sternum, completing a very impressive double-team manoeuvre! Homicide runs across the ring and knocks Consequences Creed off the ring apron as Bashir covers Suicide, 1............ 2............ 3!!!
Winners - Homicide & Sheik Abdul Bashir @ 5:31
‘We Are World Elite’ plays and Sheik Abdul Bashir gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee to heat from the crowd and Homicide enters the ring as the duo simply smirk at each other and look down at Suicide with a feeling of eminence before they leave the ring, Bashir marking his return to TNA with a victory.
Mike Tenay: All I can say is wow! Sheik Abdul Bashir is back in TNA, he picks up a victory with Homicide, and it seems like Bashir is back with the World Elite!
Taz: Welcome back, Sheik Abdul Bashir!
Mike Tenay: Bashir of course was fired after receiving the fatal Feast Or Fired briefcase at Final Resolution, but for one reason or another, Sheik has returned and he’s done it with a bang.
Backstage, Ric Flair is sat in a leather chair in his lavish-looking dressing room, groaning and holding an ice-pack to his head, selling the effects of the Angle Slam he received earlier tonight. Christy Hemme runs in, with a microphone.
Christy Hemme: Ric!
Flair pauses to look at Christy from head-to-toe before looking up at her.
Ric Flair: What d’ya want?
Christy Hemme: We found out earlier tonight that it would be Team Angle versus Team Flair in Lethal Lockdown next month, have you found a team captain?
Ric Flair: I’m not gonna tell you or anybody right now, but I’ve found just the guy. Can ya’ do me a favour, Christy?
Hemme nods her head, looking puzzled.
Ric Flair: Go and tell Kurt Angle to be out in the ring later tonight, so he can face my team captain. Wooooooooooooo!!!
Christy is startled by Flair’s catchphrase and she nods her head at ‘The Nature Boy’ before scurrying away as Ric smirks before once again holding the ice-pack to his head. We then cut back to ringside with Mike Tenay and Taz.
Taz: So lemme’ get this straight; Ric Flair wants Kurt Angle in the ring later tonight to face Flair’s team captain for Lethal Lockdown?
Mike Tenay: That’s right, Taz, and if that isn’t enough, we don’t even know who Flair’s team captain is! Looks like we’ll find out when everybody else, including Kurt Angle, does. Don’t go anywhere, folks, because when we return, Abyss faces Rhino in a TNA Global Championship #1 contender’s match!
Back on Impact, ‘War Machine’ blares out to heat from the crowd and Rhino jogs out, throwing his arms above his head as his pyro goes off before he storms down the ramp, looking pissed off after losing to D’Angelo Dinero last night. Rhino enters the ring, and calls for a microphone.
Rhino: DINERO!! Last night, you got lucky, you son-of-a-bitch! Just like all of these morons, you know that you can’t beat ‘The War Machine’! And if you’re stupid enough to disagree, then you’ll find out at Lockdown, ‘cause there is NO WAY that I’m losing this match-
Rhino is cut off when ‘Down In The Catacombs’ sounds off and Abyss walks out, getting a good pop especially after he shut up Rhino. Abyss raises his arms up as his fire pyro goes off and ‘The Monster’ advances down the ramp, stepping into the ring, crossing his hands over and letting out a reverberating roar which startles ‘The War Machine’.
Winner Challenges For The TNA Global Championship At Lockdown:
Abyss Vs Rhino
The bell rings and Abyss and Rhino don’t lock up, as they instead immediately begin to trade right hands which more or less sets the tone for this contest. Abyss gains the upper hand in the exchange and he Irish whips Rhino into the ropes but instead of rebounding off them and running back, ‘The War Machine’ stops himself and he rolls out of the ring, standing outside the ring and catching a breather but when he makes a needless mistake in turning his back to Abyss, ‘The Monster’ leaves the ring and grabs Rhino by his long, wet hair, running forward with Rhino’s hair in his grasps and driving him face-first into the steel ring-post! Rhino goes down and Abyss gets him back to his feet, getting him back into the ring and making the cover, 1............ 2............ Rhino kicks out. It appears that Rhino has a bloodied nose after going into the steel ring-post but Abyss ignores it as he gets Rhino to his feet and Irish whips the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion into the corner of the ring, then running towards Rhino but ‘The War Machine’ counters, kicking Abyss in the face and then taking the big man down with a clothesline. Rhino wipes the blood from under his nose and then kneels down, repeatedly pummeling Abyss with blows to the cranium and then turning him over, locking Abyss in a Boston Crab!
Even monsters hurt sometimes, and Abyss is writhing in agony as he desperately tries to get to the ropes and eventually he does after crawling across the ring as Rhino is forced to let go, but when Abyss lets go of the ropes, Rhino goes right back on the attack again and gets Abyss in a sleeper hold. Abyss is kept in this sleeper hold longer than he was in the Boston Crab and on numerous occasions ‘The Monster’ looks like he is fading away as the referee recurrently checks on him, but Abyss refuses to quit and he fights to his feet, hitting Rhino with a few blows to the mid-section and then lifting Rhino up into the air in a Gorilla Press position before unceremoniously dropping ‘The War Machine’ on his front on the mat! Abyss throws his arms out and roars as he gets fired up and he gets Rhino to his feet, Irish whipping Rhino into the ropes and then going for a clothesline, but Rhino ducks it and then runs off the ropes again, hitting Abyss with the GORE!!! However, Rhino rolls away as he holds his arm which looks like it was hurt from hitting that Gore, but he eventually crawls across the ring and makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! ABYSS KICKS OUT!
After that, Abyss eventually has a resurgence of sorts and Rhino tries to put a stop to it but it doesn’t appear to be possible as Abyss is able to grab him by the throat with both hands and throw Rhino across the entire ring! When Abyss gets him back up, he Irish whips ‘The War Machine’ against the ropes and he then hits the BLACK HOLE SLAM!!! Abyss makes the cover, 1............ 2............ 3!!!
Winner - Abyss @ 6:40
‘Down In The Catacombs’ plays to a good pop from the crowd and Abyss gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and he walks up to the camera, letting out a resonant roar and motioning around his waist before leaving the ring, and the camera then cuts backstage where Jeremy Borash is standing by with the man Abyss will challenge for the TNA Global Championship at Lockdown, ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero.
Jeremy Borash: I’m here with the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero who we just found out will put the title on the line against ‘The Monster’ Abyss at Lockdown and Pope, do you feel that this is your biggest challenge to date?
D’Angelo Dinero: Well of course it is, Jimmy! Abyss is a monster just like he says he is, and Pope knows that, Abyss is different from the other guys that Pope has successfully defended this TNA Global Championship against, he’s done it against Eric Young, he’s done it against Hippo...
Heat at the mention of Young and Rhino, but they laugh when he calls him Hippo.
D’Angelo Dinero: But Abyss needs to know that Pope is different from anybody who has stood before him in the past!
Cheers from Dinero, who removes his shades.
D’Angelo Dinero: Abyss has never seen anybody who is even close to resembling the charismatic ... pimptacular ... HAND CLAPPING ... FOOT TAPPING ... PIMP SLAPPING, BLINGING ATTIRE, ALWAYS ON FIRE POPE THAT IS D’ANGELO DINERO!!!
Big pop for Pope, who is breathing heavily after his outburst.
D’Angelo Dinero: As for Rhino ... you say that last night was a fluke? Pope says how about you back it up next Monday night?
D’Angelo Dinero: You heard Pope right, Rhino, you’ve got a TNA Global Championship match next week and we’ll see if you can put your money where your mouth is. Pope has spoken.
Dinero puts his shades back on and points to his TNA Global Championship which is over his shoulder, before walking away to cheers from the crowd.
The cameras are backstage, and the World Elite and Matt Morgan are walking down a corridor, all with smirks on their faces. Morgan, Eric Young, Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams and Kiyoshi are all present, Homicide and Sheik Abdul Bashir being absent due to competing earlier tonight.
Eric Young: You ready for tonight, big guy?
The camera shifts to Morgan, who has a grin on his face as he nods his head.
Matt Morgan: Oh yeah ... I’m ready.
Eric Young: Good.
The World Elite continue to walk, as the camera cuts to the ring.
‘Broken’ plays and the TNA Knockouts Champion Tara walks out with her title over her shoulder, as she walks over to the announce table and sits in between Mike Tenay and Taz, putting her headset on.
Mike Tenay: Welcome back to Monday Night Impact everybody, and we are now being joined by the TNA Knockouts Champion Tara, who will put her title on the line next month at Lockdown against either Angelina Love or Daffney and Tara, what do you think of the Knockouts being back on Impact?
Tara:I think it’s great, Mike, we had a good run on Sunday nights but this is our real home right here on Monday Night Impact and it’ll be good to be back on Pay-Per-View at Lockdown.
‘Girlfriend’ blares out to a good reaction from the crowd and Angelina Love walks out with a grin on her face as she waves to the crowd and walks down the ramp, entering the ring and waiting for her opponent.
Taz: It’s great to see the TNA Knockouts back on Monday Night Impact where they belong, I’m excited to see them back and Angelina Love is one of the biggest reasons why, Professor.
Tara: I think it’s great that Angelina’s back in TNA and we’ve teamed a few times since she returned but if I have to face her at Lockdown then
Then, ‘Psychotic’ plays and Daffney makes her way out, with Dr. Stevie at her side. Stevie has his hand on Daffney’s shoulder as she storms down the ramp, looking to keep her under control as she enters the ring and stands opposite Love with a crazed look on her face as she pulls at her long black hair.
Winner Challenges For The TNA Knockouts Championship At Lockdown
Angelina Love Vs Daffney
The bell rings and Angelina Love and Daffney lock up, as Love forces Daffney to the mat and gets on top of her, grabbing the vixen by the hair and slamming her head against the canvas repeatedly until the referee gets in between them and breaks them up. When both are back on their feet, they run towards each other in the middle of the ring and Daffney kicks Angelina in the mid-section, Irish whipping her into the corner and running at her but Love kicks Daffney in the face which spins her around and Angelina then hits her with a bulldog! Love makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Daffney gets the shoulder up. Angelina gets Daffney to her feet and lifts her up for a scoop slam but Daffney lands on her feet behind Love and hits her with a sit-out rear mat slam. Daffney gets back up and runs off the ropes, hitting Angelina with an elbow drop and making the cover, 1............ 2............ Love kicks out. Daffney gets Love up and gets her in a front face-lock, trying to lift her up for a suplex but Love fights out of it and she pushes Daffney away, then hitting her with a clothesline! Daffney gets back up and Love runs off the ropes, hitting Daffney with a dropkick! Love makes another cover, 1............ 2............ Daffney kicks out. Love gets back up and she gets Daffney to her feet, running off the ropes but Dr. Stevie intervenes, grabbing onto Angelina’s legs when the referee wasn’t looking and it gets Love’s attention as she turns around and Stevie climbs onto the ring apron, BUT LOVE SLAPS STEVIE ACROSS THE FACE!
The crowd pop and Stevie is shocked as he rubs his cheek which was slapped and Love nods her head with a grin on her face, but Daffney grabs her by the hair and slams her to the mat. Daffney repeatedly kicks Angelina in the back and in the mid-section as Love tries to get to her feet and Daffney gets Love up, throwing her through the ropes and out of the ring. Daffney leaves the ring and continues to pursue her, getting her up and trying to slam her head into the ring apron but Love elbows her in the face and she pushes Daffney into the guard rail, walking towards her but the ‘Zombie Queen’ kicks her in the mid-section and hits Angelina’s head into the top of the guard rail! Daffney lets go of Love and tries to get back in the ring but Angelina pulls her back, slapping her across the face which sends her back-pedalling and then driving Daffney into the ring apron! Love then turns around and is about to get back into the ring but the referee completes the count of ten!
Winner: Double Count-Out @ 4:37
This match has ended in a double count-out and the crowd are booing as Angelina Love shakes her head in disappointment and re-enters the ring, looking over at Tara who takes the TNA Knockouts Championship off her shoulder and holds it up.
Mike Tenay: Well, it looks like we don’t have a #1 contender to your TNA Knockouts Championship, Tara, anything to say?
Tara: One way or another, I’m defending this baby at Lockdown.
Then, ‘White Train’ blares out and Eric Bischoff walks out to a mixed reaction from the crowd, slowly nodding his head at what has happened.
Eric Bischoff: Somehow, I just knew this was going to happen.
Well that’s a coincidence.
Eric Bischoff: And because of that, I have a back-up plan so don’t worry. At Lockdown, Tara will be defending her TNA Knockouts Championship against Angelina Love...
The camera cuts to the ring where Love is smiling but Daffney doesn’t look happy, thinking that she isn’t going to get a shot.
Eric Bischoff: AND Daffney, in a Steel Cage Three Way Dance!
The crowd pop as Daffney is no longer unhappy and Bischoff leaves, but as soon as he does, Daffney turns Love around and hits her with the Daff Knees! The crowd boo and Daffney looks down at Angelina with a smirk on her face before she and Dr. Stevie leave, walking up the ramp and both looking at Tara who is standing at the announce table with the TNA Knockouts Championship in her hands.
Mike Tenay: Did you hear that, Taz? The TNA Knockouts Championship is going to be on the line in a Steel Cage Three Way Dance with Tara, Angelina Love and Daffney!
Taz: Why do you always think I don’t hear these things? I do listen, y’know. But yeah, I can’t wait, it’s gonna be a great match especially inside the Steel Cage, and Tara will have to pull out all the stops if she wants to walk out of Dallas, Texas still the TNA Knockouts Champion.
Backstage, Mr. Anderson is walking down a corridor, not looking like his happy self.
Mike Tenay: There’s Mr. Anderson and he’s on his way to the ring, we will hear from him after the break when we enter the second hour of Impact, where we’ll see Kurt Angle face Ric Flair’s mystery team captain for Lethal Lockdown and Jeff Hardy take on Rob Van Dam with a place in the main event of Lockdown on the line!
Taz: Plus, The Motor City Machine Guns face Generation Me and we hear from the World Elite and Matt Morgan!
Back on Impact, ‘Mic Checked’ blares out to heat from the crowd and Mr. Anderson walks out, his amusement having not improved since he saw him on his way out. Anderson saunters down the rampway and enters the ring, scaring David Penzer out of the ring.
Mike Tenay: Mr. Anderson lost to Sting last night at Destination X so of course Anderson will not be happy as you can say by the look on his face, what he will have to say we do not know but knowing Anderson he will say just about anything.
Taz: The last time Anderson had something to say the night after losing at a Pay-Per-View, Sting made his return and it wouldn’t shock me if ‘The Icon’ showed up again tonight!
Anderson stands in the centre of the ring, and he reaches up, as his microphone reels down from the ceiling and he snatches it, looking in disgust at the crowd.
Mr. Anderson: Alright, I’m gonna let all of you laugh it up while I don’t say anything, because I am NOT in the mood to make you all shut up when I’m talking.
The crowd laugh at Anderson and cheer, as he shakes his head, before interrupting.
Mr. Anderson: TIME’S UP!
Heat for Anderson.
Mr. Anderson: Yeah, like I’m gonna give you what you want. C’mon, do ya’ really think I would? Be honest with yourselves for once!
Mr. Anderson: And, uh ... speakin’ of being honest with yourselves ... Stinger!
Big pop at the mention of Sting.
Mr. Anderson: Do you actually THINK that you can beat me?
The crowd, thinking that he can, cheer.
Mr. Anderson: Last night proved absolutely NOTHING, Stinger, you’re over the damn hill and you know that you don’t have anything on me. And before you wipe your facepaint away with your little tears, I just wanna remind you that after your fluke win over me, I CHALLENGED you to a match at Lockdown.
Mr. Anderson: But – but – but don’t worry, Stinger ... I’m not expecting you to accept. All ya’ have to do is walk through that curtain, come down to this ring and say to my face and in front of all your ‘fans’ that you can’t lay a damn finger on me and you’re frickin’ petrified of the thought of stepping into a Steel Cage with the real ‘Icon’ in TNA ... MIIIIIIIIIISSSSTTAAAAAHHHH ... AAAAAANNNDDDEERRRSSSONNNNN!!!
Major heat for Anderson, as he climbs to the second rope and holds the microphone to his lips, saying:
Mr. Anderson: AAAAAAANNNDDEEERR-
Anderson is interrupted when he suddenly looks up to the ceiling and sees STING standing in the rafters, getting a big pop from the crowd. Anderson smirks at the sight of Sting.
Mr. Anderson: W – wh – what’s the matter, Stinger? Too afraid to come down to this ring and face me like a man?
Sting laughs, before answering Anderson.
Sting: No, Ken, I’m doing you a favour because I know that you don’t want me to come down there and humiliate you just like I did last night at Destination X.
Pop from the crowd.
Sting: And as far as your challenge for Lockdown...
Mr. Anderson: You heard that? You heard that?! Oh ... oh my God, I’m shocked, Stinger, I thought you were too old to hear that, I really, really hope that I didn’t offend you ‘cause as you and all of these wonderful fans know, I always put other people before me.
Heat for Anderson, as he grins.
Sting: Very funny, Ken, but you won’t be laughing at your own corny little jokes at Lockdown!
Pop from the crowd, as Anderson genuinely looks surprised.
Sting: That’s right, you didn’t think I would, did you?! It’s SHOWTIME for you on April 18th in Dallas, Texas, Ken, BECAUSE ME AND YOU ARE STEPPING INSIDE THAT STEEL CAGE AT LOCKDOWN AND I’M GONNA DYE THAT BLONDE HAIR OF YOURS RED WITH YOUR OWN BLOOD!!
Pop for Sting, who calms himself down before speaking again.
Sting: But of course, that’s if you decide to show up.
Sting then disappears from the rafters, walking away as the camera zooms in on Anderson, who is speechless for once as he slowly shakes his head knowing that he will meet Sting again at Lockdown.
Mike Tenay: Wow! Mr. Anderson thought that Sting wouldn’t accept his challenge to a match at Lockdown, but we all know that ‘The Icon’ is full of surprises and Anderson just found that out first hand, and he also found out that he’s going to be facing Sting inside the Steel Cage on April 18th at Lockdown!
Taz: Anderson’s ego got the better of him, Professor, and he’s got a lot of preparing to do for stepping into the Steel Cage with Sting!
Mike Tenay: We’ve still got three matches left tonight and we will hear from the World Elite and Matt Morgan!
AJ Styles: When you despise somebody...
Styles and Samoa Joe having a stare-down.
Kurt Angle: When you thrive on inflicting pain...
Angle applying the Ankle Lock.
Hulk Hogan: When you wanna run wild...
Hogan posing for the crowd.
D’Angelo Dinero: When all of your anger is caged up...
Dinero hitting Eric Young with the DDE.
Jeff Jarrett: Then this is your night.
Jarrett smashing a guitar over someone’s head.
Jeff Hardy: This is the devil’s paradise...
Hardy hitting the Swanton Bomb.
Mr. Anderson: This is a place where the faint-hearted are prohibited...
Anderson hitting Sting with the black baseball bat.
Sting: This, is Lockdown.
TNA LOCKDOWN – APRIL 17TH – DALLAS, TEXAS
Back on Impact, ‘My Generation’ plays and Generation Me jog through the curtain out onto the stage, as Max and Jeremy Buck pose together before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans as they slide into the ring and both climb to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring, posing again before climbing back down and waiting for their opponents.
‘Motorcity’ blares out to a huge pop from the crowd and The Motor City Machine Guns walk out, as Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin both point to the ring before striding down the ramp, motioning to the camera and then entering the ring. Sabin and Shelley both climb to the second rope and pose before climbing down and removing their spiked leather jackets, standing opposite Generation Me.
Tag Team Match
Generation Me Vs Motor City Machine Guns
The bell rings and Max Buck and Chris Sabin leave the ring, as Jeremy Buck and Alex Shelley start off this match. The two competitors approach the center of the ring and shake hands, before locking up as respect goes out of the window and Shelley gets Jeremy in a standing headlock, before letting go and quickly getting behind Buck, but Jeremy sends Alex into the corner following a few elbows to the head and Buck then turns around, running towards the corner where Shelley is situated, but Alex quickly jumps over the ropes onto the ropes as Jeremy manages to stop himself before running into the turnbuckles and Shelley somersaults over the ropes, catching Jeremy with a headscissors and taking him down! The crowd cheer as Alex nips back up, Shawn Michaels-style, and runs off the ropes, hand-standing in the ring next to Jeremy in a display of athleticism before twisting around and hitting him with an elbow drop! Shelley quickly makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Jeremy gets the shoulder up. Shelley gets to his feet and gets Jeremy in the corner of the ring, tagging in Chris Sabin as Alex kneels down on all fours in the middle of the ring with Jeremy still in the corner and Sabin backs away before running forward, using Shelley as a springboard, and hitting Buck with a dropkick!
Chris quickly gets back up, and before Jeremy can fall to the canvas, Sabin kicks him in the mid-section and hits him with a snap suplex. Sabin gets back up and gets Buck in a seated position, taking his arms and pulling them back whilst digging his feet into Jeremy’s spine, putting Buck in an excruciating position to say the very least. When Sabin starts to get complacent and doesn’t apply as much pressure, Jeremy is able to roll backwards and hit Chris with a few kicks to the head until Sabin lets go of his arms and Jeremy gets to his feet. With Sabin in a seated position, Buck runs off the ropes and hits him with a leg lariat, before making the cover, 1............ 2............ Sabin kicks out. Jeremy gets to his feet and tags his brother Max Buck into the match for the first time, as Jeremy gets Sabin to his feet and wrenches his arm as Max climbs to the top rope and jumps off, hitting Sabin’s arm with a double-foot stomp! Jeremy leaves the ring at the request of the referee Mike Posey as Max covers again, 1............ 2............ Sabin kicks out again.
Max gets up and he gets Sabin to his feet, Irish whipping him into the ropes and ducking down in position to hit a back body drop, but Sabin instead gets Max with a sunset flip! However, Buck manages to stay on his feet with Sabin below him, and Max rolls forward before getting up, as does Sabin, and both competitors go for dropkicks but it is a bit of a mess as both competitors go down and get back up rather swiftly as Max runs towards Sabin but Buck takes him down with an arm drag. Sabin gets back up again, and runs at Max again, but Max leap-frogs over him, running off the ropes again, and this time they both go for clotheslines, as both competitors are laid out on the mat. Sabin and Max then nip up to their feet at the same time, and the looks on their faces shows that both are rather freaked out, until they run at each other and Sabin kicks Max in the mid-section, hitting him with a few right hands before Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and then running at him, jumping onto Max and hitting him with a few more blows as the crowd count along, before hitting Buck with a Monkey Flip as Max flies across the ring like a rag doll!
Chris Sabin gets to his feet and walks over towards Max Buck, but Max sends Sabin back-pedalling with a kick to the face and Max then gets to his feet, running at Sabin and hitting him with a spinning heel kick! Sabin goes down and rolls out of the ring, and Max seems to have an idea as he looks around the crowd before nodding his head, and he runs off the ropes, sprinting across the ring, before going through the ropes and taking out Sabin with a suicide dive! Sabin is kept up by the steel security rail, but he is very groggy, and then Jeremy walks across the ring apron, springboarding off the ropes and hitting Sabin with a moonsault! Jeremy manages to land on his feet after taking Sabin down and Alex Shelley then joins in, climbing to the top rope and somersaulting off the top rope onto Jeremy! The crowd are really loving this, as they chant ‘This is awesome!’ and ‘TNA!’ with all four competitors in the match laid out in a heap outside the ring. Eventually, Sabin and Max re-enter the ring and continue to fight.
This match comes to an end with Chris Sabin and Jeremy Buck as the legal men in the ring after frequent tagging in and out between both tandems. Sabin and Buck exchange right hands until Jeremy gains the upper hand, hitting Chris with consecutive blows, and he then runs across the ring, jumping onto the ropes and springboarding off them, going for a cross body, but Sabin catches Jeremy on his shoulders in mid-air, and hits Buck with the Cradle Shock! Sabin covers, 1............ 2............ 3!!!
Winners – Motor City Machine Guns @ 6:03
‘Motorcity’ plays and Alex Shelley has his hand raised by the referee to a pop from the crowd and Chris Sabin enters the ring as the two tag team partners high-five and Sabin then calls for a microphone, which he receives.
Chris Sabin: Alright ... I’m not gonna sugarcoat this, I’m just gonna lay it down right now; Beer Money!
Mixed reaction at the mention of Beer Money, as Shelley takes the microphone.
Alex Shelley: Me and Chris get the feeling that you two have been avoiding us ever since you won those TNA World Tag Team Championships, and you’re in for a pretty big surprise if you think we’re just gonna stand on the sidelines, so Roode ... Storm ... get out here!
After a few moments, ‘Take A Fall’ blares out and the TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money make their way out, as James Storm has a beer bottle in his hand but Robert Roode is all business, as per usual.
Robert Roode: Unlike the two of you who enjoy playing on your stupid little video games in your spare time ... we have quite a lot on our hands, things that are worth the time of Champions like us, so whatever you have to say to us, you better make it quick.
Sabin takes the microphone.
Chris Sabin: First of all, we don’t really appreciate being talked to in that tone of voice and seriously, there are some good video games going around at the moment...
Roode and Storm look at each other, before laughing.
Chris Sabin: And secondly, me and Alex wanted you out here to make a challenge to you.
James Storm: A challenge? A CHALLENGE?! You out of your minds, fellas?!
Alex Shelley: Well a TNA World Tag Team Championship shot at Lockdown inside a Steel Cage doesn’t sound too bad to me, how about you, Chris?
Big pop from the crowd, as Sabin nods his head in agreement.
James Storm: I thought you were out of your minds, but now I KNOW you’re out of your-
Robert Roode: YOU’RE ON!
Big pop, as Sabin and Shelley nod their heads and high-five, and Storm looks at Roode in shock, shouting ‘WHAT?!’ as ‘Take A Fall’ plays and the TNA World Tag Team Champions leave.
Mike Tenay: If Mr. Anderson and Sting wasn’t enough for Lockdown, then check this out; the TNA World Tag Team Champions, Beer Money, putting their titles on the line against THE MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS inside the Steel Cage at Lockdown!
Taz: If there was ever any doubt, then there is no question that Lockdown is gonna be off the hook! Everything’s bigger than Texas, but I don’t think Lockdown can possibly get any bigger, Professor!
Mike Tenay: When we return to Impact, we will hear from the World Elite and Matt Morgan!
Backstage, the TNA X Division Champion Christopher Daniels, Amazing Red, Brian Kendrick, Jay Lethal, Kazarian and Shannon Moore are all stood in Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan’s office, with Hogan standing in front of them.
Hulk Hogan: Alright, brothers, let’s get down to business. You all had a great match in that Ultimate X last night, congratulations for winning and retaining the title by the way, Daniels...
‘The Fallen Angel’ nods his head with a smirk on his face, rubbing the TNA X Division Championship which is on his shoulder.
Hulk Hogan: And I know that all of the TNA-Maniacs would love to see all of you hook it up in the ring again.
Pop from the crowd.
Hulk Hogan: Which is why, on April 17th at Lockdown in Dallas, Texas, it’s gonna be you six competing against each other for the TNA X Division Championship, in an XScape Match.
Big pop for that announcement.
Hulk Hogan: You all know what that is, right?
Everyone nods their head, but Daniels just has to chip in.
Christopher Daniels: Yeah, I do, and do you know what else I know, Hulk Hogan? I know that you can’t break me.
Hulk Hogan: What are you talking about?
Christopher Daniels: Ah, trying to act confused, huh? Oldest trick in the book, but it’s probably new to you seeing as you’re so old. You make me defend my title in an X Division Gauntlet, an Ultimate X Match and now this, but you need to understand something, ‘brother’, and that’s the fact that I am the longest-reigning TNA X Division Champion in TNA history, and the only guy that can break that record is ME, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels, and Lockdown isn’t gonna stop me from doing that... and that’s the gospel.
Daniels makes his dramatic departure as Hogan and the other five competitors in the XScape Match at Lockdown watch the TNA X Division Champion leave, all either confused or laughing.
Back on Impact, ‘We Are World Elite’ blares out to heat from the crowd and the World Elite walk out, all wearing suits. Eric Young, Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams, Homicide, Kiyoshi, Sheik Abdul Bashir and Matt Morgan, all wearing suits, walk down the ramp with Young and Morgan at the front and everybody else in a line behind them, as they enter the ring.
Mike Tenay: I cannot believe it, I really cannot. One day after Matt Morgan betrays Rob Terry and his own partner Hernandez, it looks like Morgan’s joining the group that he gave the victory to last night at Destination X – The World Elite!
Taz: It doesn’t shock me one bit, Professor, this must be why ‘The Blueprint’ did what he did to Hernandez and Terry last night.
In the ring, Young and Morgan have microphones as they stand in front of the rest of the World Elite, taking in the heat from the crowd.
Eric Young: Before you go any further, no ... your eyes are not deceiving you.
Young smirks as the crowd continue to boo.
Eric Young: That’s right, the World Elite is announcing its biggest-ever acquisition, in every sense of the word.
The camera cuts to a grinning Morgan, before going back to Young.
Eric Young: And if that’s not enough ... it’s an American! And no, this doesn’t mean that any of you are good people because I still stand by the truth, the truth being that all Americans are blood-thirsty, selfish phonies and all of you epitomise that, but there are very, very few exceptions, the biggest and best exception of all being this man, the newest member of the World Elite ... MATT ... MORGAN!!
Major heat, as Morgan takes centre stage.
Matt Morgan: I stand here and I still see the looks of shock on your faces after I fooled Hernandez and Rob Terry last night ... and it brings a smile to my face.
Morgan points to the smile on his face, before continuing to talk.
Matt Morgan: It’s that kind of intelligence that makes me better than all of you because nobody in this Arena could have done what I did, and it’s that which makes me the perfect addition to the World Elite.
More heat for Morgan.
Matt Morgan: I look around the other guys in this group and when I do I have no doubt in my mind ... that this is the best thing going in TNA today. Forget about Hogan, forget about Bischoff, and AJ and Sting, THIS is what makes TNA tick, THIS is the back-bone of TNA and THIS is a group that only the best of the best qualify for!
The camera shows the other members of the World Elite, who are all smiling.
Matt Morgan: So that means that there’s not gonna be any guys the likes of Hernandez, or Rob Terry, because they PALE in comparison to the GENETICALLY JACKED ... ATHLETICALLY STACKED ... DNA OF TNA ... THE BLUEPRINT ... MATT ...
Morgan is cut off when ‘Te Gusta O No!’ blares out to a pop from the crowd and Hernandez and Rob Terry walk out, both looking pissed off with Morgan and the rest of the World Elite as ‘Super Mex’ has a microphone.
Hernandez: What the hell, man? First you stab me and Rob in the back last night, now THIS?! I always knew this would happen, Matt, ever since I met you I knew this side of you was just waiting to come out.
Matt Morgan: Come on, don’t flatter yourself, Hernandez, you never knew that a side of me this good was there, but I knew and just as importantly, Eric knew as well.
Young nods his head in agreement.
Hernandez: You, Eric and all of your other lackeys might be in your own little world down there, but me and Rob aren’t buying into it, and these fans that used to support you and chant your name aren’t either.
Matt Morgan: Ha! If there’s one thing I like about you, Hernandez, it’s your sense of humour. I don’t know about you, Rob, as all you do is stand there with your arms crossed doing nothing as always, but you could really take some tips from this guy. Hernandez, you actually THINK I’ve ever given a CRAP about these people?!
Heat for Morgan.
Matt Morgan: They’re not WORTHY of saying my name, they’re not even worthy of cleaning my damn shoes! Hell, YOU’RE not worthy of cleaning THEIR shoes, Hernandez!
Hernandez: If you wanna talk about shoes, Matt, then how about I knock you off your damn feet right now?!
The crowd pop and Hernandez and Terry then run down the ramp, entering the ring and fighting with the World Elite! Hernandez goes for Morgan but ‘The Blueprint’ leaves the ring as ‘Super Mex’ and ‘The Freak’ take on the rest of the group and they throw Homicide and Sheik Abdul Bashir out of the ring, before Terry chokeslams Kiyoshi and Hernandez kicks Brutus Magnus in the gut, lifting him up and throwing out of the ring onto Bashir and Homicide with the Border Toss! Doug Williams goes over the ropes and out of the ring thanks to a big boot from Terry, and then Eric Young is cornered! However, Morgan re-emerges, and Morgan nails Hernandez with the Carbon Footprint for the 2nd time in twenty-four hours! Now Terry is out-numbered and he runs at Young, taking him down and unloading on Young with punches but Morgan hits Terry with a low-blow and when Terry struggles to his feet, Morgan runs off the ropes, and nails Terry with a Carbon Footprint as well!
The crowd boo as Hernandez and Terry lie motionlessly on the canvas and Eric Young and Matt Morgan stand tall as they raise each other’s hands in the air and then leave the ring, walking up the ramp ignoring the other members of the World Elite.
Mike Tenay: I don’t approve of the actions of Eric Young and Matt Morgan, but you have to admit that they made an impact here tonight on Morgan’s first night in the World Elite.
Taz: Things are looking up for the World Elite, Professor, especially now that they have a future TNA World Heavyweight Champion in Matt Morgan on their side now!
Mike Tenay: Team Angle’s going to face Team Flair in Lethal Lockdown on April 18th, and coming up next, Kurt Angle faces Team Flair’s captain – but who is it? We’ll find out, after the break!
Backstage, Kurt Angle is walking down a corridor, on his way to the ring for his match with Ric Flair’s mystery team captain.
Back on Impact, ‘Gold Metal’ plays to a big pop and Kurt Angle makes his way out after coming up a small elevator, throwing his hands above his head as his pyro goes off before he walks down the ramp, entering the ring and spinning around with his arms out-stretched, then waiting in the corner for his opponent.
Mike Tenay: There’s Kurt Angle and he is wondering just as much as we are as to who the captain of Team Flair is, and who his opponent will be in just a few short moments.
Then, Ric Flair walks out to heat from the crowd and Flair stands on the ramp with a microphone in his hand.
Ric Flair: Alright, Kurt, it’s time ... Introducing the team captain of Team Flair for Lethal Lockdown ... WOOOOOOO!!! DESMOND ... WOLFE!!!
Then, ‘Hungry’ blares out and Desmond Wolfe walks out, getting a lot of heat from the crowd as he walks up to Ric Flair and shakes his hand before sauntering down the ramp with Chelsea, giving the two-fingered gesture to the crowd until he enters the ring, as he stands opposite Kurt Angle with a smirk on his face and sees Chelsea out of the ring.
Mike Tenay: Desmond Wolfe is captain of Team Flair?
Taz: Wow! I can’t believe it, Professor!
Mike Tenay: And it looks like we’re about to see Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle, two great rivals who have had many epic battles in the past, go one-on-one right here, right now on Monday Night Impact!
Lethal Lockdown Preview
Desmond Wolfe Vs Kurt Angle
The bell rings and the old rivals, Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle, circle each other cautiously around the ring for several moments before eventually getting into the lock-up. Angle forces Wolfe straight away into the corner of the ring and the referee gets in between them once Wolfe’s hands are on the ropes, as Kurt is forced to back away and Desmond simply grins at Angle until they walk into the middle of the ring and lock up again. Wolfe quickly wrenches Angle’s arm and gets him in a wrist-lock, but Kurt forces Desmond into the ropes and then Irish whips him across the ring into the opposite set of ropes, and when Wolfe comes back, Angle takes him down with an arm drag. Wolfe gets back up and runs at Angle but Kurt kicks him in the mid-section, gets him in a front face-lock, and hits him with a suplex. Angle quickly makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Wolfe kicks out.
Angle gets back up and gets Wolfe up too, not wasting any time as he Irish whips him into the corner of the ring and then runs towards him, but Wolfe hits Angle with a boot to the face, and he then runs out of the corner, hitting Kurt with an STO and then covering: 1............ 2............ Angle gets the shoulder up. Wolfe gets back up and stomps away at Kurt until he uses the ropes to jump high into the air and then drop a knee right onto Angle’s cranium, covering him again: 1............ 2............ Angle kicks out again. Wolfe gets back up and takes Angle’s legs, trying to turn him over onto his stomach but Kurt pushes him away as Desmond staggers backwards, and he runs straight back towards Angle but he takes Wolfe down with a drop toe hold, and he then tries to apply the Ankle Lock, but Desmond frantically crawls across the mat and leaves the ring!
The crowd boo as Desmond Wolfe backs away from the ring and takes a breather from the match, provoking Kurt Angle to take matters into his own hands as Angle leaves the ring and goes after Wolfe! However, Desmond continues to avoid Kurt, and he walks over towards the announce table, holding SoCal Val in front of him as a bodyshield in order to protect himself from Angle! After a few moments with Kurt not taking any risks, Wolfe pushes Val aside and kicks Angle in the mid-section, taking him back towards the ring and whipping him into the steel ring-post before re-entering the ring. It looks like Wolfe could win this match via count-out as Angle is still down on the count of seven, but ‘The Wrestling Machine’ manages to get back in the ring just before the count of ten! The crowd cheer, but Desmond is unhappy that he got back in the ring, and he makes his feelings known as he relentlessly stomps away at Angle until the referee gets in his way.
Wolfe gets Angle back up, throwing right hand after right hand at him until he Irish whips him into the ropes and he then goes for a clothesline but Kurt ducks it and goes for a German Suplex but Wolfe fights out of it and when both men are facing each other, Wolfe kicks Angle in the mid-section and plants the Olympic Gold Medallist into the mat with a DDT! Wolfe covers, 1............ 2............ Angle gets the shoulder up just in time! Wolfe slowly gets to his feet, becoming impatient as he hasn’t been able to put Kurt Angle and this match to rest yet, and he gets Angle up, going behind him, and hitting him with a German Suplex! However, Wolfe doesn’t let go, as he gets back up still holding onto Angle and the crowd begin to boo as he hits Kurt with another German Suplex before connecting with a third and final one! Wolfe, thinking that there’s no way he can’t win after that, takes a moment to give the crowd his two-fingered gesture which gets him a lot of heat, before he covers Angle, counting along with the referee, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Kurt Angle kicks out! Wolfe cannot believe it, and he slams his fists against the mat in a fit, before getting up and stomping away at Angle, pressing his foot into Angle’s throat until the referee tells him to stop and Wolfe then climbs to the top rope.
Wolfe waits eagerly for Angle to get to his feet, and when he does, Wolfe flies off the top rope, going for a cross body, but Angle catches him with a Powerslam in mid-air! The crowd cheer, but that took a lot out of Angle as both competitors lie motionlessly on the canvas for several moments until Kurt is the first one to get up, struggling to his feet with assistance from the ropes, and he makes the climb to the top rope. Facing away from the ring, the crowd cheer as they know what’s coming now, and Angle goes for the Moonsault... but Wolfe moves out of the way! Angle crashes and burns on the mat, and we’re back to square one now, as both Angle and Wolfe are on the mat not moving, but Wolfe is now up, and he is beleaguered, but he still somehow finds the time to reveal his toothy grin and gesture to the crowd, before he slowly gets Angle up, then backing into the ropes and tilting in between them and running at Kurt, going for the patented Jawbreaker Lariat, but Angle ducks it, and hits Wolfe with the Angle Slam!
Maybe there is in fact hope for Kurt Angle after successfully hitting Desmond Wolfe with the Angle Slam which has ended so many matches in the past, but unfortunately for Angle and most of the TNA fans, Kurt cannot capitalize as he is exhausted and he is the other side of the ring to Wolfe, both men laid out. After a few moments, Angle slowly crawls across the canvas and manages to lay an arm over Wolfe as the cover is finally made! 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Desmond Wolfe gets his foot on the bottom rope! Angle slowly rolls away, and eventually both competitors get back to their feet, sluggishly exchanging blows until Angle kicks Wolfe in the mid-section and goes for the Angle Slam again, but Wolfe lands on his feet behind Angle and he then rolls ‘The Wrestling Machine’ up, with more than a handful of his tights! 1............ 2............ 3!!!
Winner – Desmond Wolfe @ 8:34
‘Hungry’ blares out and Desmond Wolfe immediately gets to his feet, raising both of his hands in the air and ignoring the referee as Kurt Angle lies in the corner of the ring in exhaustion after that gruelling match. Wolfe gives the booing fans his two-fingered gesture with a smirk on his face as Chelsea re-enters the ring and gives Desmond his shades and jacket, but meanwhile, Rob Van Dam comes through the crowd and climbs to the top rope behind Wolfe, and when he turns around, Van Dam flies off the top rope and hits Wolfe with a kick to the head! Wolfe immediately goes down and rolls out of the ring as Chelsea looks on in horror and RVD notices her, as a smirk emerges on his face. Van Dam performs his signature thumb taunt, before grabbing Chelsea, and planting a kiss on her! The crowd cheer and the kiss lasts for several moments until RVD lets go and leaves the ring as ‘Whole F’n Show’ hits and the camera zooms in on Chelsea, who has an overwhelming smirk on her face!
Mike Tenay: What a match that was between Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle, it ended on a sour note with Wolfe rolling up Angle and grabbing the tights, but Rob Van Dam made amends with that kick to Wolfe off the top rope, before RVD planted a kiss on Wolfe’s girlfriend, if that’s what she is, Chelsea!
Taz: (Laughing) He sure did, Mike, and better yet, it looked as if Chelsea enjoyed it!
Mike Tenay: That isn’t the last we’ve seen of RVD though, because coming up next, he is in action against the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy, with Jeff’s title shot against AJ Styles at Lockdown on the line! You do not want to miss it, folks!
Backstage, Ric Flair is watching the show in his dressing room, red-faced and looking very close to tearing his hair out after what he just saw.
Ric Flair: DAMNIT, DAMNIT, DAMNIT!
Flair stamps his feet against the floor in frustration, throwing a fit, until Samoa Joe walks in, with a smirk on his face.
Samoa Joe: Ah, Ric Flair... I saw what happened out there, and it made me think that you’re gonna have to shape up your team for Lethal Lockdown pretty fast so things like that don’t happen and Kurt Angle doesn’t get the upper hand.
A grin comes to fruition on Flair’s wrinkly face, as he nods his head.
Ric Flair: (Laughing) Haha... are YOU thinkin’ what I’M thinkin’, big guy?!
Samoa Joe: You bet I am.
Ric Flair: Haha, good... HEY! CAMERAMAN! GET OUTTA’ HERE!
The camera begins to shake a little as Joe walks over towards the cameraman and pushes him out of the room, closing the door with the camera set on the ceiling...
Elsewhere, Jeff Hardy is walking down a corridor, on his way to the ring for his big match against Rob Van Dam coming up next.
Back on Impact, ‘Whole F’n Show’ plays and Rob Van Dam makes his way out once again, performing his thumb-taunt as his pyro goes off before he walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and then sliding under the ropes into the ring. RVD climbs to the second rope and performs his thumb taunt again before climbing back down and waiting in the corner of the ring for his opponent to arrive.
Then, ‘Modest’ blares out and the lights almost go out completely as Jeff Hardy walks out, his face and arms visible with glow-in-the-dark paint. The unorthodox Hardy dances around exuberantly on the stage before making his way downt he ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring, running across the ring and jumping to the second rope, posing for the crowd whilst singing along to his self-composed theme song before climbing back down and standing opposite RVD.
Winner Challenges For The TNA World Heavyweight Championship At Lockdown
Jeff Hardy Vs Rob Van Dam
The bell rings and Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam approach the center of the ring, shaking hands as a sign of mutual respect and friendship before both backing away and circling each other around the ring, then locking up. Hardy forces Van Dam into the corner of the ring, as RVD pushes Jeff away and they lock up again, as Van Dam wrenches Hardy’s arm and forces him into the ropes, then Irish whipping him across the ring into the other set of ropes. Jeff comes running back and Van Dam lies on the mat as Hardy jumps over him and runs off the ropes again and RVD gets back up, leap-frogging Hardy, but this time Jeff stops behind Van Dam and when he turns around, Hardy kicks him in the mid-section, gets him in a front face-lock, and hits him with a suplex. Hardy covers Van Dam, 1............ RVD gets the shoulder up. Jeff gets to his feet and gets Van Dam up, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and running at him but Rob sends Hardy back-pedalling with a kick to the head and Van Dam then runs out of the corner, taking Jeff down with a clothesline. Hardy gets back up and runs at RVD, only to be taken down with another clothesline, and the next time Jeff gets to his feet, Van Dam floors ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ with a hip toss. RVD looks around the Impact Zone, before running off the ropes, rolling across the canvas and looking like he’s going to go for his signature Rolling Thunder, but he stops when he sees Jeff on his feet.
After a few moments of stillness, Hardy and Van Dam begin to exchange blows again, and Hardy Irish whips RVD into the ropes, taking him down with a back body drop. Van Dam gets back up rather quickly, and Jeff kicks him in the mid-section, planting Rob into the mat with a DDT! Hardy covers him, 1............ 2...... RVD kicks out again. Jeff gets up and climbs out onto the ring apron, leaping over the ropes and going for a leg drop, but Van Dam rolls out of the way as Hardy misses and lands in a seated position, and RVD runs off the ropes, going for a kick to the head of Hardy, but Jeff ducks it and then brings Van Dam down, rolling up ‘Mr. Monday Night’! 1............ 2............ Van Dam kicks out yet again! That was a close one, and both competitors get back to their feet again, and they have a stare-down with tensions starting to rise between the two friends Hardy and Van Dam before RVD goes for a kick, but Jeff catches his leg, only for RVD to hit Hardy with an enzuiguri, which sends Jeff through the ropes and out of the ring down to the concrete floor! Hardy soon struggles to his feet and holds onto the ring apron, and RVD looks around the Impact Zone, before running off the ropes and sprinting across the ring, sending Hardy spine-first into the steel security rail with a baseball slide!
With Jeff kept on his feet thanks to the security rail,Van Dam gets to his feet and climbs out onto the ring apron, performing his thumb-taunt before jumping off and going for a kick to Hardy, but Jeff moves out of the way as RVD’s leg gets caught on top of the security rail and Jeff backs away before running forward and driving multiple elbows into Van Dam’s leg, then backing away once more and subsequently taking RVD down with a clothesline as the back of Rob’s head goes into the concrete floor! We are treated to an instant replay of that thunderous clothesline, and when it concludes, Jeff has RVD on his feet and he gets him back into the ring, making the cover, 1............ 2............ Van Dam gets the shoulder up! Hardy, on his knees, briefly glances at the referee before running his hands through his sweat-soaked hair and getting to his feet, getting RVD to his feet. Hardy hits Van Dam with a few right hands before running off the ropes and going for a clothesline, but Van Dam ducks it and then takes Jeff off his feet and down to the mat with a roundhouse kick! RVD then runs off the ropes, and rolls across the mat, before hitting Hardy with the Rolling Thunder and then making the cover for the first time in this match, 1............ 2............ Jeff kicks out just in time!
Van Dam slowly gets to his feet and he then climbs to the top rope, looking like he might go for his patented Five-Star Frog Splash but he has to change his plans when Hardy begins to get up. Once he is up, RVD flies off the top rope and goes for a kick, but Jeff catches his leg in mid-air and spins Van Dam around as ‘The Whole F’n Show’ goes for another kick but Hardy ducks it and then kicks RVD in the mid-section, applying a front face-lock and lifting him off his feet and into the air, connecting with a suplex facebuster! ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ then makes another cover attempt, 1............ 2............ RVD kicks out! The referee Earl Hebner must be getting pretty tired now after having to count so many pin attempts, and both Hardy and Van Dam are exhausted too, as both competitors lie on the mat until they both gradually get to their feet and begin to exchange right hands. RVD gains the upper hand, hitting him with consecutive blows, and he then runs off the ropes, but Jeff hits Van Dam with a sit-out jawbreaker which sends RVD staggering backwards into the corner before falling down in a seated position. Jeff walks over to the corner where Van Dam is situated and he stomps away at RVD for a few moments before holding onto the ropes and jumping up, going for the Hardyac Arrest corner dropkick, but Van Dam rolls out of the way as Jeff misses and continues to hold onto the ropes with his feet resting on the middle ropes but RVD springboards off the ropes and hits Hardy with a leg drop!
Jeff falls to the mat and Van Dam looks around the Impact Zone, before jumping to the top rope, and hitting Hardy with the Split-Legged Moonsault! Van Dam then makes the cover, 1............ 2............ Hardy gets the shoulder up just before the three count! RVD gets to his feet and he gets Jeff up, Irish whipping Hardy into the opposite corner of the ring and then running towards him but Jeff moves out of the way as Van Dam crashes into the turnbuckles, and Hardy then runs off the ropes, driving RVD’s face into the mat with a bulldog! Jeff then turns Van Dam over, and locks him in the Spine Line Arm-Lock Cloverleaf! RVD is writhing in pain which is evident when the camera zooms in on his face, and Van Dam desperately tries to make it to the ropes, almost doing so, but before he can grab the bottom rope with his one free hand, Hardy carefully drags RVD back into the center of the squared circle, still holding onto Van Dam’s arm. RVD is close to tapping out as Earl Hebner is right next to him, but ‘Mr. Pay-Per-View’ refuses to quit, and the next time he valiantly makes his way towards the ropes, he grabs onto the bottom rope and Jeff is forced to let go of the submission hold and Van Dam!
Hardy gets to his feet and gets Van Dam up as well, getting him in a front face-lock and going for the Twist Of Fate, but RVD pushes Jeff into the ropes and when he comes back, Van Dam kicks Hardy in the mid-section and hits him with a bridging Northern Lights Suplex! RVD springs back to his feet and backs away, before cart-wheeling across the mat and then hitting ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ with a standing Moonsault! Van Dam covers again, 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Hardy gets the shoulder up! RVD struggles to his feet and he climbs to the top rope, performing his thumb-taunt for the crowd, before going for the Five-Star Frog Splash... but Hardy rolls out of the way, as Van Dam crashes and burns on the canvas! It’s back to square one here, as both competitors are laid out on the mat and Jeff is first to get to his feet, followed by Van Dam. Hardy goes to hit RVD with a right hand, but ‘The Whole F’n Show’ ducks it and pins Jeff with a Small Package out of no-where! 1............ 2............ 3-NO! Hardy kicks out again! Both competitors get back to their feet again, and Van Dam hits Jeff with a few right hands before Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring, but Hardy jumps to the top rope and goes for the Whisper In The Wind, but Van Dam moves out of the way and Jeff accidentally hits Earl Hebner!
Not much contact is made, with the legs skimming Hebner, but nonetheless, in typical fashion Earl is now laid out not moving a muscle and Jeff gets up, turning around into a kick to the head from Van Dam, taking him down! RVD then climbs to the top rope as quick as he can, and Van Dam connects with the Five-Star Frog Splash on Hardy!! RVD makes the cover, with the win surely in the bag now... but the referee is still down! The crowd boo as a frustrated Van Dam slams his hand against the mat repeatedly, pinning Jeff with the three count three times until he gets up and he violently shakes Hebner around, telling him to wake up as Earl, regaining at least some consciousness, tries to get up. Van Dam goes back to Hardy and slowly gets him to his feet, not doing anything for a few moments out of exhaustion until out of no-where, Jeff kicks RVD in the mid-section and nails him with the Twist Of Fate! Hardy goes down with Van Dam, but he gradually gets up and climbs to the top rope, motioning to the crowd, before nailing RVD with the Swanton Bomb! Hardy ever-so slowly hooks Van Dam’s legs, as a groggy Earl Hebner covers, 1............ ............ 2............ ............ 3!!!
Winner – Jeff Hardy @ 10:21
‘Modest’ blares out to a pop from the crowd, some booing because Rob Van Dam would have won if Earl Hebner hadn’t been knocked out, and Jeff Hardy lies on the canvas for several moments before getting to his feet and having his hand raised by Hebner, then climbing to the second rope and posing for the fans, motioning around his waist that he will become TNA World Heavyweight Champion at Lockdown. Jeff climbs back down and he sees RVD trying to get up, and Hardy extends his hand to Van Dam, helping him up as the two shake hands and embrace.
Mike Tenay: What a spectacular match we just witnessed, Taz, fate was cruel to Rob Van Dam when he successfully pinned Jeff Hardy but Earl Hebner was knocked out, and it was a Twist Of Fate and a Swanton Bomb from Jeff Hardy that finished this main event, and we now know that Hardy is the undisputed #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, and he will challenge ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the gold inside the Steel Cage at Lockdown!
Then, ‘Get Ready To Fly’ plays and the crowd cheer as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles walks out, holding his title over his shoulder as he walks down the ramp and quickly enters the ring, standing in front of Hardy and Van Dam before shaking their hands as they stand in a line with Van Dam’s left hand raised by Hardy, and Hardy’s left hand raised by Styles... with both men touching the World Championship.
Both AJ and Jeff notice this, and RVD leaves the ring as Hardy and Styles have a stare-down, before AJ holds up the TNA World Heavyweight Championship over Jeff with ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ looking up at the one thing that has alluded him for his entire career, bringing the show to a close...
Mike Tenay: Tensions rising between the two opponents at Lockdown, AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy! Everything is bigger in Texas, but it doesn’t get any bigger than the TNA World Heavyweight Championship! Goodnight, everybody, and we will see you right here, same time, same place, same excitement, next Monday night!

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
That's just some news to keep this thing moving along and with the Summer holidays quickly approaching I want to keep my workload as thin as possible so over the next two days I will post the next three shows leading up to Lockdown in one go, all in recap so I don't fall too far behind by the time the Summer is over. Lockdown has been done so after I've posted the shows the wait won't be too long and it's in full too, my first real full PPV I've written if I remember correctly.

~ It has been little over a month since Impact permanently moved to Monday nights, and Dixie Carter, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan all seem to be satisfied with the results of the move so far, but apparently Spike TV officials do not feel the same way. At a recent meeting between Carter and Spike TV President Kevin Kay, the feeling coming out of it was that TNA and Spike possibly jumped the gun by moving to Mondays and they over-estimated the impact, no pun intended, that Bischoff and Hogan have made. Ratings have been OK since the move but if the news coming out of this meeting signify anything, it is that a return to Thursday nights is possible. A positive is that Impact would be able to reach its full potential ratings-wise without having to compete with the second hour of WWE's Monday Night Raw and as a result it would be easier to lure WWE fans to their product.
~ It was reported last week that Xplosion has not replaced TNA's Knockouts-exclusive show Drop Dead on Spike's schedule and it appears that Spike do not want any additional TNA programming at the moment. TNA have allegedly begun the search for a network to air Xplosion in the United States and it is likely that G4 or Versus will pick up the show. If one of them air Xplosion then it will most likely begin in the Summer as a program that isn't for the most part storyline-driven and will allow talent that don't feature regularly on Impact to get TV time.
~ Scott Hall is now officially gone from TNA after losing to Kevin Nash in a No Holds Barred Loser Leaves Town match at Destination X but Hall and Sean Waltman, who also left this month, both remain on good terms with the company with their tumultuous pasts with the organization being smoothed over with their most recent run. Returns for the duo have not been ruled out but in Hall's case it would not be in a wrestling capacity, as he said in a recent interview concerning a possible return "It was great to be back there and I had a good time but even though I only had two matches they both took a toll on me and they made me realize that my wrestling days are definitely over. If Dixie gives me a call to come back, then I'll be back but definitely not as a wrestler". In that interview, Hall said that he would like the idea of being a manager for somebody.
~ The latest edition of Impact got a 1.0, having to compete with the final RAW before WrestleMania XXVI and the viewership is expected to decrease again next week with the WrestleMania aftermath.
~ Shane Helms has apparently struck a mutual agreement with TNA, and if so he will begin to work for the company at the beginning of June. Helms will most likely be involved in the X Division and Tag Team ranks with his good friend and former WCW tag team partner Shannon Moore.

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
TNA Monday Night Impact – March 29th, 2010
We kick off Impact with a TNA Global Championship defence, as “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero puts his title on the line against the man he defeated just over a week ago at Destination X, “The War Machine” Rhino, and in a very tightly-contested match which most would expect following their match at the last Pay-Per-View, after Rhino’s attempt at a Gore misses, Dinero hits him with the Dinero Declaration (Double-Knee Facebreaker) and pins him once again to retain the TNA Global Championship. Once the match is over, Dinero leaves the ring and takes a microphone, saying that it is still a long way to go before he reaches the mountain-top, but he will take a huge step towards it on April 18th at Lockdown when he slays the monster known as Abyss, before adding that they say that everything’s bigger in Texas, but it doesn’t get any bigger than the charismatic, pimptacular, hand-clapping, foot-tapping, blinging attire, always on fire, Pope that is the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero! Then, Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan, from the luxury of their office, announce tonight’s main event; it will be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles teaming with his Lockdown opponent Jeff Hardy to face Mr. Anderson and his Lockdown opponent, Sting!
The second match-up of the night sees another title defence as Beer Money defend their TNA World Tag Team Championships against Dr. Stevie and Raven who haven’t been seen much lately, and the Champs win, a result which doesn’t raise many eyebrows, after Robert Roode hits Stevie with the patented Spinebuster. James Storm and Roode leave on the Boozer Cruiser still as Champions, but their Lockdown opponents The Motor City Machine Guns walk out onto the stage and give them two bottles of beer, either as a sign of respect or sarcasm. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin briefly turn their backs afterwards after wishing their Lockdown opponents luck, but that proves to be costly, as Storm smashes his beer bottle over the back of Sabin’s skull! Shelley and Roode, disgusted by his tag team partner’s actions, check on Sabin as medical personnel come out and treat him as well while Storm looks on with a remorseless scowl before walking away. Backstage, Rob Terry is walking around with seemingly nothing to do, when he is confronted by Eric Young and Matt Morgan. Young tells Terry that the British Invasion may have betrayed him, but he didn’t, so effectively he is still a member of the World Elite, something which is not believable at all and is obviously Young trying to stay on Terry’s good side. Morgan tells him to come with them so he can join his stable-mates but Terry refuses their offer, then attacking Young but “The Blueprint” comes to his aid, kicking Terry in the gut and then throwing him through a wooden door!
In the third contest of the night, Amazing Red squares off against Brian Kendrick in a Lumberjack Match with the other four competitors in the XScape Match at Lockdown for the TNA X Division Championship at ringside, and Red prevails after hitting Kendrick with the Code Red. After the match, the X Division Champion Christopher Daniels enters the ring and attacked Red, but Daniels is soon disposed of and thrown out of the ring by Kazarian, Jay Lethal and Shannon Moore, who then all congratulate Red on his victory with no hard feelings between any of the quartet. Backstage, Ric Flair and his Team Flair captain Desmond Wolfe are seen talking in Flair’s dressing room about Lethal Lockdown and the second member of their team who will be revealed tonight when he takes on Team Angle’s second member. Next up, the TNA Knockouts Champion Tara faces Velvet Sky and Tara looks set to win after picking up a lot of momentum following a spell of dominance from Sky, when one of Tara’s Lockdown opponents, Daffney, appears on the ImpacTron... with Tara’s spider, Poison! In a perverse way, Daffney begins to sing the classic children’s song “Incy Wincy Spider” before abruptly closing her locker room door, and meanwhile, Velvet Sky rolls Tara up, getting her feet on the ropes and winning the match! Tara wouldn’t let it slide though, and after the match she makes Velvet pay with the Widow’s Peak before rushing backstage to try to save her spider. Elsewhere, Kurt Angle is on his way to the ring, as is Ric Flair with Desmond Wolfe in tow, as Angle and Flair prepare to introduce the second members of their Lethal Lockdown teams.
Back from a commercial break, Tara is seen storming through the backstage area looking for her spider Poison and she sees Daffney’s locker room, charging towards it but Angelina Love walks out, holding the cage containing Poison. Angelina returns it to Tara and says she won’t be so nice at Lockdown, before walking away. In the ring, it is time for the newest members of Team Angle and Team Flair to square off, and Flair goes first, revealing his second member to be “The Samoan Submission Machine” Samoa Joe! It is all smiles in Team Flair as Joe walks out, joining Flair and Desmond Wolfe but then Angle reveals his second member – “The Whole F’n Show” Rob Van Dam! The new members subsequently collide and RVD and Joe have a great match which gets a considerable amount of time, and after a hard-fought bout Joe has Van Dam on the top rope ready to lift him up in position for the Muscle Buster, but RVD kicks him away and knocks him down with a kick to the head and he then flies off the top rope, hitting Joe with the Five-Star Frog Splash and then pinning him, picking up the victory! Van Dam has his hand raised by the referee and ‘Mr. Monday Night’ then leaves the ring, having his hand raised by Kurt Angle as the duo make their departure with Ric Flair and Desmond Wolfe still in the ring, angered by the fact that Team Angle have levelled the score after Wolfe’s victory last week.
After a Lockdown commercial and a break, it is main event time on Impact with the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles teaming with his opponent at Lockdown, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy to face the cocky braggart Mr. Anderson and his adversary and Lockdown opponent, ‘The Icon’ Sting. Hardy and Styles seem to be on the same page in this bout whereas Anderson and Sting unsurprisingly are not, but after Jeff is pulled off the ring apron by Anderson when Styles goes to tag him in, AJ takes it the wrong way and it distracts ‘The Phenomenal One’ as Sting then grabs Styles and hits him with the Scorpion Death Drop, covering him and winning the match! Sting has his hand raised in the air but then Mr. Anderson re-enters the ring and grabs ‘The Icon’, nailing him with the Mic Check before leaving the ring having made a satisfactory statement to his nemesis and the fans. Then, Jeff Hardy re-enters the ring as well and helps AJ Styles to his feet, but once he is up Styles pushes Hardy away and takes his TNA World Heavyweight Championship, turning a cold shoulder to Jeff and leaving the ring, blaming the loss on him as the show comes to a close with more animosity brewing between the two opponents in Dallas, Texas on April 18th...
TNA Monday Night Impact – April 5th, 2010
Impact opens with the familiar music of “The Icon” Sting, and the fans in the Impact Zone eagerly wait for the legend’s arrival. They get an arrival, but it isn’t one of Sting; it is the arrival of his nemesis, TNA’s resident loud-mouth himself, Mr. Anderson! Clad in face-paint, a wig and a trenchcoat over a Scorpion t-shirt, Anderson saunters to the ring, mocking Sting by holding up a black baseball bat and shouting “Showtime!” to the crowd, and addresses the crowd, pretending to be Sting and talking about how he is “shaking in his boots” when he got to be in the same ring as Anderson and he is so nervous about Lockdown he had to re-do his face-paint ten times today after he cried so much. There is only so much of it that could be withstood though, and Anderson continues to ramble on trying to give himself a good image until Sting comes out through the crowd with his signature black baseball bat and quietly enters the ring, turning Anderson around and nailing him with a bat shot to the mid-section before giving him one to the skull! With Anderson down, Sting stands over his adversary, saying that the jokes will be over at Lockdown, and it will be show over for Anderson in Dallas, Texas.
The first match of the night sees Angelina Love and the TNA Knockouts Champion Tara team up to face Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky of the Beautiful People, and Love and Tara win after Tara pins Rayne following the Widow’s Peak in a relatively swift encounter. After the match, Daffney comes out and interrupts a stare-down between Angelina and Tara, standing on the ramp and observing her two Lockdown opponents with a maniacal grin on her face. Rob Terry is interviewed backstage by Jeremy Borash, and Terry takes the time to challenge Eric Young to a match inside the Steel Cage at Lockdown, demanding an answer by the end of next Monday night! The next match of the night pits “The Monster” Abyss against Jesse Neal, and the winner is clear right from the start, as Abyss quickly pins Neal following the Black Hole Slam. Abyss subsequently takes the microphone and tells ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero that at Lockdown, the real monster inside him would re-awaken, and it loves gold, which is why he will become TNA Global Champion in Dallas, Texas. These comments draw Dinero out and he says to Abyss that he agrees with Mick Foley when he said that Abyss wasn’t a monster anymore and Dinero continues to talk about their upcoming match until Abyss can’t stand it anymore and he grabs ‘The Pope’ by the throat, hitting him with a Chokeslam!
Back from the break, Kurt Angle and Rob Van Dam come out, representing Team Angle, and Ric Flair, Desmond Wolfe and Samoa Joe, representing Team Flair, then follow suit. Flair reveals the third man of his team, who turns out to be none other than “The Blueprint” Matt Morgan and Morgan makes his way out with a grin on his face but it is soon wiped away when Angle announces his third man; Morgan’s former tag team partner, Hernandez! The two rivals have a heated but entertaining match, with both men wanting to tear each other apart, but in the end after interference from Flair, Morgan pins Hernandez following the Carbon Footprint. After the match, Angle and Van Dam enter the ring and go for Flair, wanting revenge after he interfered in that match, but they instead end up against Joe, Morgan and Wolfe. Angle and RVD fight the trio valiantly with Hernandez unable to as he recovers from his loss, but in the end the numbers advantage prevails as Kurt and Rob are taken out by a Carbon Footprint and a Jawbreaker Lariat from Morgan and Wolfe respectively. Alex Shelley is interviewed backstage concerning what happened to Chris Sabin last week when James Storm smashed a beer bottle over the back of his head, and Shelley reveals that Sabin wasn’t ready to come back yet, but he will be at Lockdown, rest assured. Robert Roode then walks up to Shelley and apologizes on behalf of Storm for what happened last week, but Alex takes it with a pinch of salt, saying that he doesn’t know if he can trust Roode before walking away.
Jeff Hardy is in his locker room backstage, talking to the camera, with Jeff mentioning that he is going to call out AJ Styles later tonight! Kazarian is in action against one of the five other competitors he will compete against for the TNA X Division Championship in the XScape Match at Lockdown; “The Prince Of Punk” Shannon Moore, in a Lumberjack Match, similar to last week with Amazing Red, Brian Kendrick, Christopher Daniels and Jay Lethal at ringside. This time, there is no commotion following the match, which Kazarian is victorious in after hitting Moore with the patented Flux Capacitor from the top rope. Then, we see Jeff Hardy backstage walking towards the ring to call out his Lockdown opponent, AJ Styles. After a Lockdown commercial and a break, Hardy explains what happened last week in the tag team match, also stating that he doesn’t want any bad blood to come between the two before, during or after Lockdown and when Styles comes out he says he feels the same way, but what he will do he will do, and he isn’t going to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Championship by being Mr. Nice Guy. Jeff tells Styles that he agrees and that if AJ gets on Hardy’s bad side again it’ll put him at a great disadvantage, and Styles sarcastically asks Jeff what will happen if he does. Ask and you shall receive, AJ; Jeff kicks Styles in the mid-section and hits him with the Twist Of Fate, bringing the show to a close with “The Charismatic Enigma” standing tall over his Lockdown opponent.
TNA Monday Night Impact – April 12th, 2010
The last edition of Impact before Lockdown this Sunday opens with some one-on-one competition, as Alex Shelley faces the man who smashed a beer bottle over Shelley’s tag team partner Chris Sabin’s skull two weeks ago, one half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions “The Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm. The wrestling in the bout is solid as is expected from these two, but it gets heated rather quickly, and Shelley’s emotions get the better of him as he ignores the referee’s demands to stop hitting Storm with blows to the head. The match ends in a disqualification victory for Storm, Shelley continuing to do so until Robert Roode enters the ring to try to stop Alex. Roode’s pleas don’t go down well with Shelley, who shoves Roode away and continues to assault Storm, but it proves to be a bad move on Alex’s part, as Roode turns Shelley around and nails him with a thunderous Spinebuster! The TNA World Tag Team Champions then leave, having sent a message now to Shelley as well as Sabin, gaining the upper hand going into their title defence against Sabin and Shelley this Sunday at Lockdown but it is evident that Roode still isn’t happy with Storm after what he did to Sabin.
Backstage, Kurt Angle is in his locker room with his Team Angle team-mates Hernandez and Rob Van Dam and both men ask Kurt if he has found a fourth member for the match tonight. Angle assures them that he has and a smirk emerges on his face after saying that. Then, Eric Young makes his way out with the rest of the World Elite with the exception of Matt Morgan who Eric says is with Ric Flair at the moment and Young officially accepts Rob Terry’s challenge to a match at Lockdown, saying that not aligning himself with the World Elite was a mistake no-where near as big, and as costly, as challenging him to a Steel Cage Match was. Terry then comes out and makes his way to the ring, heroically fighting off the other six members of the World Elite and disposing of them until it is down to Young and “The Freak”, but Eric immediately leaves the ring, heading to the back and not wanting anything to do with Terry. In the third match of the night, we see more X Division action as the TNA X Division Champion Christopher Daniels faces one of his five challengers this Sunday in the XScape Match at Lockdown, “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal. With the other four competitors in the match in six days’ time at ringside, Daniels manages to defeat Lethal in a very tightly-contested bout after hitting Jay with the Best Moonsault Ever.
Then, Team Angle and Team Flair are shown on their way to the ring respectively, and after the break, it is time to find out the final members of both teams. Flair’s last member is ‘The War Machine’ Rhino, and Angle’s final member is his former rival, the founder of TNA, ‘The King of the Mountain’ Jeff Jarrett! Rhino is defeated by Jarrett after he hits the Stroke, but the action once again erupts as the four members of Team Angle and the four members of Team Flair battle, and with Ric Flair out of the ring, “The Nature Boy” calls for the Cage which was at the top of the Impact Zone to be lowered! Flair’s wish is granted and the Cage traps the eight men inside. Eventually Team Angle stand tall, taking out the four Team Flair members as Angle climbs to the top of the Cage and looks down at a livid Flair, Kurt smirking at Flair and saying to him that a lot more is to come this Sunday at Lockdown. Backstage, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles and the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero are both in Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan’s office, and it is just Bischoff in there with Hogan being absent for some reason. Eric tells Styles and Dinero that they will be competing together in a tag team match tonight against their Lockdown opponents... Jeff Hardy and Abyss! The fifth match of the night gives us our weekly dose of some Knockouts action, with Daffney facing Sarita, and Daffney is on the way to a win but when Angelina Love and Tara come out together and distract Daffney, Sarita rolls her up and wins the match in similar fashion to Velvet Sky’s victory against Tara a few weeks ago.
Then, Sting is interviewed in the rafters by Christy Hemme and Sting talks about his match this Sunday with Mr. Anderson, saying that it will be the match to end all of this and he is going to prove that Anderson is not on his level. “The Icon” continues to hype their match this Sunday, until he is attacked from behind, by... Guess who? That’s right, Mr. Anderson... Anderson! The brash loud-mouth brings Sting down and targets Sting’s left knee, repeatedly hitting it with the bat and then pressing the bat against Sting’s throat until Sting is gasping for air in desperation and Anderson considers his job as good as done, simply walking away with a joyful smile on his face as if nothing had just happened. After a break, it is main event time, with the two Champions of TNA, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles and the TNA Global Champion “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero teaming up for the first time ever to face their respective title challengers this Sunday at Lockdown, Jeff Hardy and Abyss. We didn’t get to see much action between Hardy and Styles and Abyss and Dinero, with the good stuff presumably being saved for Lockdown, but this is still an entertaining match-up and in the end Hardy and Abyss win after Hardy nails Dinero with a Twist of Fate and follows it up with the Swanton Bomb! Abyss and Hardy have their hands raised and Styles climbs off the ring apron, keeping his distance from Hardy who is well aware of his presence and has a 6’8, 350 pound monster backing him up as “The Monster” and “The Charismatic Enigma” both have good chances of winning gold on Sunday...

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Lockdown Preview – April 18th, 2010 – Dallas, Texas
The time has almost arrived! Everything is bigger in Texas, but it doesn’t get any bigger than the yearly event where every match takes place inside the Steel Cage, TNA Lockdown! It all kicks off this Sunday on April 18th in Dallas, Texas at 8PM ET/5PM PT live on pay per view so make sure you order the event now before it’s too late.
There are many reasons to watch Lockdown, but the biggest is the huge main event; ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles will defend his TNA World Heavyweight Championship he has held for seven months against ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy, the first meeting between the two since Hardy returned to TNA. Hardy has undoubtedly earned the right to challenge for the gold in Dallas, as he won a Four Corners match at Destination X and retained his title opportunity against Rob Van Dam the following night but tensions have been rising between Hardy and Styles. It started when AJ and Jeff lost a tag team match to Mr. Anderson and Sting, who will also be squaring off at Lockdown, after Hardy was pulled off the ring apron by Anderson, thus leaving Styles on his own in the ring where he then lost and AJ blamed Jeff for the loss. The following week, Hardy called Styles out and he said he didn’t want there to be any bad blood between the two of them leading up to Lockdown, but the confrontation resulted in Hardy hitting AJ with the Twist of Fate. Then, this past Monday on Impact, Hardy and ‘The Monster’ Abyss defeated Styles and TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero in tag team action. If the winner of the match has to be determined on momentum then Hardy will pass with flying colors but Styles is Champion for a reason. Only one man can walk out of Dallas this Sunday as TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
The heated rivalry between Kurt Angle and ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair finally comes to an end this Sunday as Team Angle faces Team Flair in the Lethal Lockdown Match, a contest that has taken place at every event. This rivalry began when Flair cost Angle the TNA World Heavyweight Championship back in January at Genesis because he thought he had a chance of an association with AJ Styles; he was mistaken, but Angle would not let it slide. Flair struck again when he cost Angle a Ladder Match against Samoa Joe for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase, and it has led them to here. On Angle’s team it is Angle, Hernandez, Jeff Jarrett and Rob Van Dam and on Flair’s team it is team captain Desmond Wolfe, Matt Morgan, Rhino and Samoa Joe. It took four weeks to find out the teams in their entirety but it has been well worth the wait. The night after Destination X, the Lethal Lockdown match was announced and Flair revealed his team captain to be Wolfe, who defeated his old rival Angle that same night, and the following week, the second members were announced, with Team Angle’s RVD defeating Team Flair’s Samoa Joe. The following week, Hernandez and Morgan were unveiled by Angle and Flair respectively and ‘The Blueprint’ defeated ‘Super Mex’ but this past Monday, Jeff Jarrett prevailed against Rhino, giving each team two victories heading into this Sunday. Lethal Lockdown is the most violent and brutal concept ever devised in TNA, but these eight men are putting it all on the line on Sunday and it will only be worthwhile for one team.
Another rivalry which will come to a conclusion at Lockdown is between Mr. Anderson and Sting, who have been at each other’s throats ever since the historic February 15th edition of Monday Night Impact when Sting made his return and set his sights on Anderson. Last month at Destination X, ‘The Icon’ made Anderson submit to the Scorpion Deathlock but immediately after, Anderson attacked Sting and later challenged him to a match at Lockdown. The following night on Impact, the loud-mouth stated that he didn’t expect Sting to accept his challenge out of fear so he was preparing to change his plans but Sting appeared in the rafters and informed Anderson that he accepted his challenge! The following week, Anderson and Sting were forced to team up but they defeated TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy only for Anderson to hit Sting with the Mic Check afterwards. The week after, we thought that Sting would open the show when his music hit but instead it was Anderson who came out dressed as his rival. Anderson talked about how ‘he’ was going to lose at Lockdown, but Sting soon appeared and brought an end to the mockery. Then, this past Monday night Sting was interviewed in the rafters but was attacked from behind by Anderson, who targeted Sting’s left knee with the signature black baseball bat. Their epic rivalry finally comes to a conclusion this Sunday at Lockdown, will TNA’s resident loud-mouth have more to brag about or will ‘The Icon’ defeat Anderson again and finally silence him?
TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero will defend his title against ‘The Monster’ Abyss inside the Steel Cage after Abyss defeated ‘The War Machine’ Rhino the night after Destination X on Monday Night Impact. The following week, Dinero successfully defended the gold against Rhino who had been embroiled in a rivalry with Dinero prior to Destination X and after the match he guaranteed that he would slay the monster in Dallas, Texas. The week after, Abyss easily defeated Jesse Neal and proclaimed that the monster would be unleashed on ‘The Pope’ at Lockdown, but the fans wanted to see these two mix it up and this past Monday on Impact they got what they wanted as Abyss teamed with Jeff Hardy to defeat Dinero and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles in the tag team main event. In his three-month reign as TNA Global Champion, Dinero has yet to encounter somebody the size of Abyss and it will undoubtedly be a daunting task for ‘The Pope’ but can he defy the odds and slay the monster like he has said he will? Or will Abyss Black Hole Slam Dinero all the way into the black hole of defeat and claim the gold?
Ever since he won the TNA X Division Championship at Against All Odds, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels has repeatedly proclaimed that he is the heart and soul of the X Division and he is the only person who can hold the title. And who can blame him? In spite of his attitude, Daniels has overcome the odds on two occasions when he was almost guaranteed defeat; one night after he won the gold, he retained the title in a Gauntlet Match and at Destination X he retained against the man he won the gold from, Amazing Red, Brian Kendrick, Jay Lethal, Kazarian and Shannon Moore. But this Sunday at Lockdown, Daniels will have to face another daunting task as he defends the X Division Championship against those five competitors once again, only this time it will be in an XScape Match where all eliminations are made via pinfall or submission until only two men remain and then it is a race to escape the Cage. Can Daniels prove the critics wrong again, just like has on two other occasions over the past two months?
Beer Money will put the TNA World Tag Team Championships on the line against The Motor City Machine Guns, who have had quite a year so far. At Genesis, they defeated Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman in tag team action, at Against All Odds they fought Nash, Waltman, Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley alongside Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall and at Destination X they prevailed against Foley and Jarrett with Eric Bischoff as the Special Guest Referee and Hogan as the Special Outside Enforcer. But now, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin’s sights are set on winning tag team gold for the first time since forming their tandem, and Lockdown will be the ideal environment for it to happen. Sabin and Shelley have the speed advantage over James Storm and Robert Roode but a lot will rely on Sabin who hasn’t been seen since the March 29th edition of Impact, one week after they defeated Generation Me to earn this title opportunity, when Storm smashed a beer bottle over Sabin’s head. Sabin will be out for revenge when he returns this Sunday, but what kind of condition will he be in? Find out this Sunday at Lockdown!
Tara will defend the TNA Knockouts Championship against Angelina Love and Daffney in a Steel Cage Three Way Dance this Sunday, capping of the Knockouts’ return to Impact with a bang. The night after Destination X, Daffney and Love fought to a double count-out and Eric Bischoff announced a Three Way Dance for Lockdown, a result which most likely didn’t please any of them. The following week, Tara was on the verge of defeating Velvet Sky in non-title action when Daffney appeared on the ImpacTron holding Tara’s spider Poison which distracted her and allowed Velvet to win the match. Tara got her revenge when she hit Velvet with the Widow’s Peak and subsequently hurried backstage only to see Love walking out of Daffney’s locker room with the spider, giving it to Tara and saying she wouldn’t be so nice at Lockdown. The following week, Love and Tara teamed to defeat Angelina’s former group The Beautiful People and after the match Love and Tara briefly made eye contact and it escalated into a face-to-face staredown as Daffney walked out onto the stage to observe. This past Monday on Impact, Sarita scored an upset win against ‘The Zombie Queen’ after Love and Tara both gave Daffney a taste of her own medicine and distracted her when they walked out onto the stage. Tara is more likely to lose the title than retain it, but can she defy the odds inside the Cage?
The leader and founder of the World Elite, Eric Young, will face a former member of his group, ‘The Freak’ Rob Terry in a match which is almost one year in the making. Terry made his TNA debut with the British Invasion and they quickly joined the World Elite but in February Terry was kicked out of the British Invasion, and consequently the World Elite as well. Terry subsequently aligned himself with Hernandez and Matt Morgan and they faced Young, Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams at Destination X but the World Elite were victorious in a matter of seconds after Morgan betrayed Hernandez and Terry, nailing them both with Carbon Footprints. The night after, Hernandez and Terry confronted Morgan and the World Elite and disposed of them all from the ring apart from Morgan, who struck again at the expense of both of them when he once again used his devastating boot on them. The following week, Young thought he could get Terry back into the World Elite, thinking that he was still part of the group but ‘The Freak’ refused and attacked Eric before Morgan came to Young’s aid and they both hurled Terry through a door backstage. The following week, Terry challenged Young to a match at Lockdown, wanting an answer by next week, and Young accepted but then Terry made his way out and targeted Young, going through the rest of the World Elite with the exception of Morgan in the process but Young got away. He will have nowhere to run this Sunday though inside the Steel Cage with the Welshman.
