Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Impact Preview For February 4, 2010
This Thursday, Impact is back on Spike for another instalment of the best professional wrestling programme on TV today! Against All Odds is now just a mere ten days away, and don't forget, Impact moves to Monday nights, starting at 8/7CT, the following night, still on Spike!
Last week on Impact, Kurt Angle and Mr. Anderson squared off in a huge main event which Andersonwon using under-handed tactics, and we have a match just as big this week, as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles faces Desmond Wolfe! Styles will defend the gold against Anderson and Wolfe will face Jeff Hardy, both matches taking place at Against All Odds, so this will be a magnificent encounter between two of the best professional wrestlers in the world today! Anderson and Hardy will be in attendance, so where will they fit in? Tune in to find out!
At Against All Odds, Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and The Motor City Machine Guns will take on Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and two partners of their choosing in an Unsanctioned Street Fight, but this Thursday, Sabin and Waltman square off one-on-one! Which of these two competitors will gain the victory and also gain momentum for their quartet heading into their fight at the Pay-Per-View? Nash said last week that he and Waltman may not be able to find two guys that don't hate them but they could find two guys that hate Hulk Hogan, and the mystery surrounding that will continue on Impact.
"The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero will defend his Global Championship at Against All Odds against either Eric Young or Hernandez, and we will find out this Thursday which of those men will receive the opportunity to win gold, when Young and "Super Mex" square off! The leader of the World Elite managed to defeat Abyss last week to advance whereas Hernandez prevailed over his tag team partner "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan, but that will go out of the window when these two men meet. Who will face Dinero in ten days' time?
Samoa Joe issued an open challenge to any new TNA, or unsigned, wrestler last week, and it was answered by none other than TNA's newest acquisition, the obnoxious Brian Kendrick, but Kendrick was unable to topple "The Samoan Submission Machine. This Thursday, Joe will issue another open challenge, but who will answer it this time?
The British Invasion found out last week that they will defend their TNA World Tag Team Championships against Beer Money, Inc at Against All Odds, and this week, in a warm-up match, Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams take on Lethal Consequences, with James Storm and Robert Roode doing guest commentary at ringside! Can the Brits gain some momentum going into their big title defense with their future opponents watching?
Also this week, the X Division Champion Amazing Red, who will defend his title at Against All Odds against Daniels after "The Fallen Angel" defeated Suicide last Thursday night to receive the opportunity, squares off against Homicide!
Be sure to tune into Spike this Thursday night at 9/8CT to see all of this and more on Impact!
Scheduled For Impact:
AJ Styles faces Desmond Wolfe!
Chris Sabin takes on Sean Waltman!
Eric Young and Hernandez go one-on-one!
Samoa Joe issues an open challenge!
The British Invasion face Lethal Consequences!
Amazing Red squares off against Homicide!

TNA Impact | February 4, 2010
Impact Zone | Orlando, Florida
The One That Got Away...
To begin the show, instead of the opening credits and pyro, the camera is set backstage, where Mr. Anderson has just arrived in the building and is walking through the parking lot carrying some bags over his shoulder, as the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship gets a lot of heat from the crowd when he becomes visible. Shortly after, a black stretch limo pulls up, and out steps none other than Ric Flair, who is accompanied by one blonde woman and one brunette. Flair gets a mixed reaction when he walks into the picture, and the “Nature Boy” grins at Anderson, who cracks a slight smile and waves to Ric.
Ric Flair: There he is! The next TNA World Heavyweight Champion, baby, Woooooo!
Anderson looks perplexed after Flair’s statement.
Mr. Anderson: I do have a name, y’know, Ric.
Ric Flair: I know who you are, I’m sorry. You’re-
Anderson holds his hand up in front of Flair’s face, cutting off the 16-time World Champion.
Mr. Anderson: Whoa, whoa, whoa, leave it to me. That’s a, uh ... pretty nice limo you’ve got there, Ric.
Ric Flair: I’m glad ya’ mentioned it, Ken, ‘cause it’s all yours! Woooo!
Mr. Anderson: Seriously? It’s not gonna blow up as soon as I step inside it? ‘Cause I know all about that kind of stuff ... just sayin’.
Ric Flair: No, no, no, I don’t play like that. If I wanted to hurt ya’, I’d get ya’ down right now, and lock ya’ in the Figure Four, but I don’t wanna do that, especially to the guy who’s gonna beat that punk AJ Styles at Against All Odds!
Anderson nods his head in agreement.
Ric Flair: So whenever ya’ wanna get outta’ here ... the limo’s waitin’ for ya’, buddy.
Flair goes to walk away, but Anderson stops him.
Mr. Anderson: Wait, uh ... I kinda’ like to get the last word in, so if you’ll excuse me ... (Clears throat) that limo now belongs to MIIISSSSSTTTAAAAAAAHHHHHHH ... AAAAANNNNDDDEEERRRSSSSOOOONNNNN!!!!!
Ric laughs, and he and the women accompanying him walk away, as Anderson waves goodbye.
Mr. Anderson: ... AAAAANNNDDDEEERRRSSSSOOONNNNNN!!!
Elsewhere, Eric Bischoff is sat in his office, on the phone.
Eric Bischoff: Hello, Kurt? It's Eric. If you're in your car on the way to the Arena now, then I suggest that you turn around, because I'm giving you the night off... What do I mean? Look, since me and Hulk came to TNA, we've wanted to restore order, and quite frankly, looking at what you wanted to do to Ric Flair last week, I can't let you in. Sorry.
Bischoff hangs up his phone, and sighs...
After that, the opening credits roll and “Cross The Line” plays as we enter the Impact Zone and fireworks ascend from the stage whilst pyro balls fall from the ceiling. The camera pans the crowd in the Arena, before cutting to Mike Tenay and Taz, who are situated at the announce table at ringside as always.
Mike Tenay: Hello, everybody, and welcome to TNA Impact! I’m Mike Tenay alongside Taz, and we’re less than two weeks away from Against All Odds, and speaking of Against All Odds, tonight the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, who will defend his title at the Pay-Per-View against Mr. Anderson who we saw talking to Ric Flair a few moments ago, is in action against none other than Desmond Wolfe!
Taz: I can’t wait for that match and I’m loving the limo Ric Flair’s got for Mr. Anderson, but also tonight, we find out who will challenge “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero for the Global Championship at Against All Odds, will it be the former Champ, the leader of the World Elite, Eric Young, or will it be “Super Mex”, my boy, Hernandez?
Mike Tenay: All this talk about Against All Odds makes me look even more forward to what will happen the night after the Pay-Per-View, because on that night, February 15th, TNA Impact moves to Monday nights!
Taz: Man, oh man, it’s gonna be huge, Mike! Monday nights are hotting up now, baby!
Mike Tenay: Samoa Joe issues another open challenge to any new TNA acquisition or unsigned talent, and Brian Kendrick answered the call last week but came up just short, who will step up to the plate tonight?
Taz: I’ll have a lot of respect for whoever answers Samoa Joe’s challenge tonight, ‘cause they must have seen Joe’s victory last week over Brian Kendrick, and even I got goosebumps seeing that!
Mike Tenay: One half of the Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin, goes one-on-one against one half of The Band, Sean Waltman, and that should be a fiery encounter, especially with Sabin and Shelley teaming up with Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall to face Waltman, Kevin Nash and two partners of their choosing at Against All Odds.
Taz: I’ve been thinking all week about who Nash and Waltman could choose as their partners, those words Nash said about the fact that they might not find two guys that don’t hate them, but they could find two guys that hate Hulk Hogan. What does that mean?
Mike Tenay: The TNA World Tag Team Champions the British Invasion are in action against Lethal Consequences, and the X Division Champion Amazing Red will square off against Homicide. These two belts will be on the line at Against All Odds, so things are sure to heat up.
Taz: I wouldn’t be surprised to see Beer Money, Inc turn up before, during, or after the British Invasion’s match, they’ll wanna get one over the Brits after their confrontation in front of this very announce table last week, and I think, no, actually I guarantee that Daniels is gonna show up to confront Red. Don West’s mouth won’t be able to save the X Division Champ, Professor!
Clipping The Wings...
Once the commentators are done talking, “Red Remix” blares out and the X Division Champion Amazing Red walks out, accompanied by Don West. Red, holding his title over his shoulder, makes his way down the ramp as West tries to keep up to give him tactics and Red jumps over the ropes, entering the ring and holding up his title to generate a few cheers from the crowd.
Then, “5150” plays to heat from the crowd and the loose cannon Homicide jogs out, pounding his fist at his chest as he jumps up and down whilst gradually making his way down the ramp before stepping into the ring and looking at Don West, yelling at him in Spanish before turning his attentions to Amazing Red who is standing in the corner opposite to him.
Match 1 | Singles Match
X Division Champion Amazing Red vs. Homicide
The bell rings and Amazing Red and Homicide immediately lock up, as Homicide pushes Red into the ropes and then runs at the X Division Champion, but Red holds onto the ropes and manages to wrap his legs around Homicide’s head, swinging himself around and going for a hurricanrana but Homicide is able to keep hold of Red’s legs and he takes advantage of the situation, running across the ring and sending Red into the corner with a thunderous standing powerbomb! Homicide then begins to unload on Red, stomping away repeatedly at his mid-section until Red is sat down and Homicide then backs away, taking a few steps back before charging at Red but Red slides Homicide and kips up to his feet, turning around and taking Homicide down with a spinning heel kick! After that display of smartness and athletisism, Red makes the cover on Homicide, 1...... 2...... Homicide gets the shoulder up. Red then gets Homicide to his feet and wrenches his arm, kicking him in the mid-section and putting one leg over the back of Homicide’s neck before getting the other one up in position for a hurricanrana, as Red this time connects with the hurricanrana and he sends Homicide into the ropes. Red runs across the ring and jumps to the top rope, walking across the ropes that Homicide is leaning on and jumping off, hitting Homicide with a missile dropkick! Homicide goes down and Red once again makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Homicide kicks out.
However, after that Homicide gets back into the match and has a period of dominance, not letting Red get in any offence until the end of the match, when Homicide gets Amazing Red to his feet and lifts Red up in position for the Gringo Killa, but Red is able to twist around on Homicide’s back and get in position for his patented finishing manoeuvre, which he connects with, as he nails Homicide with the Code Red! The crowd cheer as Red hits his finishing move which surely ends the match now and Red then makes the cover, eagerly hooking both of Homicide’s legs, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner | Amazing Red @ 6:42
“Red Remix” plays to a pop from the crowd and Amazing Red gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and Red is then given his X Division Championship, which he proudly raises in the air whilst his manager Don West enters the ring and congratulates him. However, shortly afterwards, “Wings Of A Fallen Angel” blares out and Daniels walks out onto the stage, getting a mixed reaction from the crowd and two glares from Red and West.
Daniels: Y’know, the looks on your faces makes me think you don’t want me out here ... but I don’t care! I can do whatever I please, ‘cause at Against All Odds I’m gonna become the X Division Champion and guys like you, Amazing Red and Don West, will be even more irrelevant than you already are, and it’s that fact which is killing that title.
Some boo Daniels, whereas some applaud.
Daniels: Red, I don’t give a crap if you’ve been here as long as I have, because the fact of the matter is, I put the X Division on the map and you didn’t, period! When the X Division was in its prime and guys like me, AJ Styles and Samoa Joe were making Impact the must-see show every single week, you weren’t doing a damn thing, and no matter how much that belt used to mean, you still aren’t!
Don West: Listen, Daniels, you may have been one of the main faces of the X Division and you may be the longest-reigning X Division Champion in TNA history, but you were still one of the faces of the X Division. You, AJ and Joe may have been making all the headlines, but if it wasn’t for guys like Red, the X Division would have been in the crapper a long time ago!
Cheers for West, but there are “Fallen Angel!” chants as well.
Don West: The fact is, Chris, you can’t face it that somebody else is Champion and that someone else is getting an opportunity to shine, but right now Red deserves the X Division Title more than you because he’s defended it time and time again, he’s a fighting Champion, and he actually gets the job done instead of bitching his ass off like you do!
Daniels: I actually can’t believe you’re saying that, Don. It’s not “bitching my ass off” like you say it is, no, it’s simply stating the facts. Besides, you say he gets the job done, but if there was actually a bit of personality under there he’d talk, instead he has to have you run your mouth for him. Seriously, Red, it’s not a good look; everybody thinks Don West is fat and you’re too nervous or stupid to talk, so-
Daniels suddenly stops, drops his microphone and runs backstage, as Amazing Red leaves the ring and runs up the ramp after Daniels! The crowd pop and begin to chant “Red! Red! Red!” as Red disappears backstage, looking for Daniels, and Don West leaves the ring, waddling up the ramp trying to keep up with his associate.
Mike Tenay: Daniels ran his mouth for too long, and now Amazing Red is on the hunt! Is the “Fallen Angel” gonna get what’s coming to him?
Taz: I dunno, Professor, but I wanna know how far our X Division Champion Red’s gonna go to make Daniels pay the price!
Mike Tenay: We’ve gotta’ get some cameras back there! Go, go, go!
Tenay gets his wish, as the camera cuts backstage where Daniels is running down a hallway, constantly looking over his shoulder. When Daniels can’t see Amazing Red behind him, he stops and takes a deep breath, facing the other way, but meanwhile Red sprints around the corner into sight, jumps onto some storage boxes and when Daniels turns around, Red jumps off the storage boxes and catches Daniels with a hurricanrana, taking the “Fallen Angel” down! Red gets up and stomps away at Daniels before sensing that his work is done and walking away as in the distance, Don West is heard shouting “Red! Red! Come back!” at the top of his lungs.
Back To The Future?
When we come back from the break, the camera is situated at the announce table, where Mike Tenay and Taz are speaking to the audience.
Mike Tenay: Welcome back to TNA Impact, everybody, and before the break we saw chaos break out to say the least; Daniels infuriated our X Division Champion Amazing Red with some comments and Red decided to go after Daniels. The “Fallen Angel” fled backstage and thought he was safe, but Red re-emerged, climbing onto some storage boxes and flying off, taking Daniels down with a hurricanrana and deciding that the message he sent was loud and clear before leaving.
Taz: I’ve never seen that side of Amazing Red before, Professor, and I expect Daniels hasn’t either, so the “Fallen Angel” better not let his guard down before, or at, Against All Odds when he challenges Red for the X Division Championship!
Then, “Nation Of Violence” plays to a mixed reaction from the crowd and Samoa Joe walks out, heading straight down the ramp towards the ring without motioning to the crowd at all and demanding a microphone as soon as he sets foot in the squared circle, then unceremoniously tossing the white towel over his shoulders out of the ring and down to the floor.
Mike Tenay: There’s Samoa Joe and I think we all know why he’s out here, ladies and gentlemen; Last week, Joe issued an open challenge to any new TNA star or unsigned talent and new acquisition Brian Kendrick stepped up to the plate, only to come up short against the “Samoan Submission Machine”, but the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion’s going to issue another challenge tonight and he wants to be taken to the limit.
Taz: That’s what Samoa Joe’s all about, Professor, he wants competition, he doesn’t bother with the fans or anybody else, he became a professional wrestler to kick ass and that’s what he wants to do to whoever faces him tonight.
Meanwhile, Joe is standing in the middle of the ring with the microphone, waiting for silence.
Samoa Joe: Here we go again ... I came out here last week wanting a challenge, and I did get one from Brian Kendrick, but ... it didn’t satisfy me enough. I humiliated him on national television, but it still – isn’t – enough. So, I’ve taken the liberty of once again issuing an open challenge to any new TNA wrestler or unsigned talent, and this time, I want a real challenge. So, whoever’s man enough to face me, come down here right now!
Joe looks towards the stage, but after a few moments there is still no answer, which angers the “Samoan Submission Machine” whilst the crowd wait in anticipation, murmuring amongst themselves.
Samoa Joe: C’mon! Don’t be scared! If I have to go back there and drag somebody’s ass back to this ring, then I won’t hesitate for a second to-
Joe is interrupted when, much to everybody’s surprise, “Kaz” blares out and none other than Kazarian, who hasn’t been seen in almost two years, walks out!
Mike Tenay: What the hell?! Is that- it is! It’s Kazarian! He’s back in TNA, and he’s coming to confront Samoa Joe!
Taz: Wow! Great to see Kazarian back, but why isn’t he dressed to compete? Has he come to answer Samoa Joe’s open challenge or what, Professor?!
Joe is shocked to see him, and Kazarian, not in his ring-gear but instead wearing a white t-shirt and jeans, is smirking as he looks around the Impact Zone at the fans who are going wild.
Kazarian: Are you all happy to see me?
The crowd respond with reverberating cheers, which pleases Kazarian.
Kazarian: Haha, I thought so-
Samoa Joe: No, no, no! Wait just a damn second! Who the hell do you think you are, Kazarian?! I come out here issuing an open challenge, and I get you coming out, not even ready to compete, and sucking up to these people?! I suggest you stay the hell out of my ring, and my company, got it?!
The crowd boo an incensed Joe after his outburst, as Kazarian looks surprised but looks like he’s about to laugh.
Kazarian: Alright, chill out, Joe. You’re right, I’m not ready to compete, because I don’t want to compete tonight.
This statement draws boos from the crowd, unhappy that Kazarian won’t be competing tonight.
Kazarian: Whoa, whoa, whoa, gimme’ a second, I’m not done. I don’t want to compete tonight ... because I don’t want my return to be ordinary. I want it to be on the big stage, just like I’ve always wanted it to be, and I want it to be at Against All Odds, Joe!
The crowd pop, but Joe is still unhappy.
Samoa Joe: Wait, hold on, did you just say you want it to be at Against All Odds?
Kazarian: You got that right.
Samoa Joe: Really? Well I hate to break it to ya’, Kazarian, but I don’t think Hulk Hogan, Eric Bischoff or Dixie Carter will allow somebody who isn’t signed to TNA, and has no talent at all, to compete at the pay-per-view.
Kazarian shakes his head at Joe, before continuing.
Kazarian: Y’see, that’s where you’re wrong, Joe. I got my contract this week, I signed it, and now I am officially back in TNA!
Big pop from the crowd.
Kazarian: So there’s no excuses or loopholes for you to hide behind, Joe, so whaddya’ say? Against All Odds ... Samoa Joe versus Kazarian!
The crowd, wanting to see that match, cheer and Joe thinks about it, walking around the ring deep in thought until he gives Kazarian his answer.
Samoa Joe: Alright ... you’ve got it!
The crowd cheer and Kazarian nods his head in contentment before leaving as “Kaz” blares out and Joe shakes his head at the sight of the back of Kazarian, the man he will face in eleven days’ time at Against All Odds...
Mike Tenay: Yes, your eyes and ears are not deceiving you, ladies and gentlemen – Kazarian has made his return to TNA, he is under contract, and he will face the “Samoan Submission Machine” Samoa Joe at Against All Odds in eleven days’ time!
Taz: Man, oh man, I’m looking forward to this match just as much as any other on the card, Professor! I’m psyched to see Kazarian back in TNA, I’ve seen what he did back in the day and it was awesome so I can’t wait to see him compete in person, especially against Samoa Joe!
Mike Tenay: It’s gonna be big, but so is tonight’s main event; the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles, in action against Desmond Wolfe!
TNA Impact moves to Monday nights on February 15th! See all of the biggest names in TNA and in professional wrestling, such as Hulk Hogan, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Mr. Anderson, Desmond Wolfe and more! See the monumental show live at 8PM, only on SpikeTV! Make the change...
Face The Consequences
Back on Impact, “Take A Fall” blares out to a big pop from the crowd, and Beer Money, Inc, James Storm and Robert Roode, make their way out, Roode walking out on the foot and Storm driving out on the Boozer Cruiser. They move towards the announce table and Storm parks up the boozer cruiser and Roode joins him as they take seats at the announce table.
Mike Tenay: Welcome back to Impact, everybody, and we’re now joined by the #1 contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Champions, Beer Money, Incorporated. Welcome to the announce table, guys.
Robert Roode: Nice to be here, Mike.
James Storm: How’s it goin’, fellas? Ya’ don’t have any rules on beer here, do ya’?
Taz: Well, Mike might but I sure as hell don’t, if you guys wanna party then come to this side of the announce table, haha!
Robert Roode: Y’know, I know somebody who’s straight edge, he wouldn’t approve of this. You might know him.
Then, “Invasion” blares out and the TNA World Tag Team Champions and the duo that Beer Money will face at Against All Odds, the British Invasion, walk out, their titles around their waists. Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams make their way down the ramp, stopping to look at Roode and Storm at the announce table and unstrapping the belts from around their waists to hold up them up as a sign of dominance before they enter the ring and wait for their opponents.
“Pomp and Consequences” plays and Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed walk out, to a lukewarm reception from the crowd. Lethal and Creed make their way down the ramp, entering the ring and both climbing to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring to pose for the crowd before climbing back down and standing opposite the British Invasion.
Match 2 | Tag Team
British Invasion vs. Lethal Consequences
Doug Williams and Jay Lethal start off the action in the ring and they immediately lock up, as Williams soon moves behind Lethal and gets him in a waistlock before taking Jay down to the canvas with a belly-to-back takedown. Williams then gets Lethal in a headlock and Jay pushes Doug into the ropes, as Williams comes running back and Lethal takes Doug down with an arm drag. Williams gets back up again and he runs at Lethal, who once again takes Doug down with another arm drag. Lethal then makes a rather optimistic cover 1...... Williams unsurprisingly kicks out on the count of one, as “Black Machismo” gets Doug back up and Irish whips him into the corner where Consequences Creed is situated, as Lethal tags Creed into the match and they double Irish whip Williams against the ropes, both hitting the Brit with enzuiguris on each side of the head as Doug goes down and Creed makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Williams kicks out on the count of two. Creed gets Doug to his feet and wrenches his arm, kicking him in the mid-section and lifting him up for a scoop slam but Williams slips off the back of his shoulders and hits Creed with a neckbreaker. He then tags Brutus Magnus into the match and Magnus enters the ring, stomping away at Creed and getting him to his feet, lifting him up and hitting him with a running powerslam! Magnus makes the cover after that, 1...... 2...... Creed gets the shoulder up. Brutus gets Creed back to his feet and takes him over to the corner of the ring, lifting Creed onto the top rope and then climbing up there himself, getting Creed in position for a superplex but Creed fights out of it and pushes Magnus off the top rope and down to the canvas! Brutus gets back up rather quickly but Creed jumps from the top rope and takes Magnus down with a cross body!
The end of this match comes when Jay Lethal and Brutus Magnus are the legal men in the ring and Lethal is bombarding Magnus with right hands as he then runs off the ropes, charging towards Magnus, but Brutus takes down the exuberant Lethal with a clothesline. Magnus soon gets “Black Machismo” back to his feet and lifts him onto the back of his shoulders in position for the Tormentum, but Lethal slips off his shoulders, gets Magnus in position, and nails Magnus with the Lethal Combination! Consequences Creed runs across the ring and knocks Doug Williams off the ring apron as Lethal makes the cover, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winners | Lethal Consequences @ 7:28
“Pomp and Consequences” plays and Jay Lethal gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and Consequences Creed enters the ring to celebrate the monumental victory with his tag team partner. At the announce table, James Storm and Robert Roode stand up and applaud the duo, laughing at the British Invasion as Brutus Magnus drags Doug Williams out of the ring by his legs and helps him up to his feet, then slowly walking up the ramp but they stop when “White Train” blares out and Eric Bischoff walks out with a microphone, getting a mixed reaction from the crowd.
Eric Bischoff: Congratulations, fellas, you just beat the TNA World Tag Team Champions!
Lethal and Creed smirk, as the crowd cheer them.
Eric Bischoff: They’re all impressed by you guys, and so am I ... which is why I’ve decided to tweak the Tag Team Title match at Against All Odds. You guys have proven that you deserve a shot, and Generation Me beat you as well as having a great match with Beer Money last week, so at Against All Odds in eleven days, it’s gonna be the British Invasion defending the titles against Beer Money ... Lethal Consequences ... and Generation Me, in a fatal four way tag team match! Enjoy!
The crowd cheer as “White Train” plays and Bischoff departs, leaving Beer Money, the British Invasion and Lethal Consequences, three of the four teams competing for the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Against All Odds, in close proximity. They all look at each other, all six men on their toes in case anybody makes a strike.
Mike Tenay: Huge changes made by Eric Bischoff, the TNA World Tag Team Championship match at Against All Odds will now be a fatal four way!
Taz: British Invasion, Beer Money, Generation Me and Lethal Consequences – This is gonna be good! First Kazarian versus Samoa Joe is announced, and now we get this! This is my lucky day, Professor!
Mike Tenay: Speaking of Against All Odds, “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero will defend his TNA Global Championship against either the former Champion Eric Young or Hernandez; but which of those men will face Dinero? We find out, next!
Keeping It Clean...
Backstage, Eric Young is walking down a corridor in his ring-gear, with the rest of the World Elite, Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams, Homicide and Kiyoshi, in tow, and it looks like they’re on their way to the ring, but Eric is confronted by Eric Bischoff, who has just come back from making the announcement concerning the TNA World Tag Team Championships.
Eric Young: What can I do for you, Mr. Bischoff? Are you here to wish me luck? Because if you are, I won’t need-
Eric Bischoff:No, I’m not here to wish you luck. Two weeks ago, I said that if your lackeys got involved in your match with Abyss, they’d be indefinitely suspended. Now, I’m not going to do that as the referee ejected you from ringside straight after, but you won’t be showing up at all tonight, because I am banning you all from ringside!
The crowd cheer, and Young looks unhappy at first, but he takes it on the chin.
Eric Young: ...Alright. I don’t care, Eric, because I can get the job done myself. Enjoy the rest of the night.
Young smirks after his sarcastic comment to Bischoff, and he leaves on his own, as the rest of the World Elite turn around and walk away after staring down Easy E.
The World Is Still Young...
Back on Impact, “We Are World Elite” blares out and Eric Young walks out, not with the World Elite at his side. Young, not smirking like he usually, walks down the ramp and steps into the ring, knowing that he has to get the job done againt Hernandez here.
Then, “Te Gusta O No!” plays and the crowd pop as Hernandez walks out, punching the air with his fists as fireworks ascend from the stage. “Super Mex” walks down the ramp, entering the ring and climbing to the second rope to pose for the crowd before climbing back down and coming face-to-face with Eric Young.
Match 3 | Singles Match | Winner Faces D’Angelo Dinero At Against All Odds
Eric Young vs. Hernandez
The bell rings and Eric Young looks at Hernandez, knowing the big task he has to face much like last week when he squared off against “The Monster” Abyss, but nonetheless Young locks up with the larger Hernandez. Young is clearly inferior to Hernandez in terms of strength, and “Super Mex” forcefully pushes Eric off his feet into the corner of the ring, showing Young and all of the TNA fans his immense strength, as Young holds on to the ropes in the corner of the ring and hesitantly steps forward, locking up with Hernandez again. This time, Eric immediately kicks Hernandez in the mid-section and bombards him with right hands and chops to the chest, running off the ropes and going for the clothesline, but Hernandez has other ideas, as he takes Young down with a hip toss that sends Eric almost into the ropes! The crowd cheer Hernandez and chant “Super Mex!” which is countered by a quieter chant of “Let’s Go, Eric!” coming from the few fans of the leader of the World Elite, and Hernandez walks over to Young to get him to his feet, but Eric rolls under the ropes and out of the ring, standing by the security rails to regain his composure as the referee tells Hernandez not go out there, but Hernandez ignores it and leaves the ring, walking towards Young but Eric then slides back into the ring, followed by Hernandez soon after, but as he slides back into the ring Young stomps away at the former member of LAX and quickly locks Hernandez in a camel clutch. However, moments later Hernandez fights to his feet and falls backwards, with Young taking the damage and Hernandez then makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Young kicks out! Hernandez regains his breath before getting Eric to his feet, but as soon as he does, Young once again leaves the ring and stands on the ramp to regain his composure once again. But, Hernandez runs off the ropes and charges across the ring like a freight train, leaping over the ropes and taking out himself and Young with a suicide dive! Both competitors lie motionlessly on the ramp as the crowd applaud Hernandez’s risky move which paid off and a replay is shown of it, and eventually both men get back to their feet and re-enter the ring.
The ending of this match to determine who will challenge D’Angelo Dinero for the Global Championship at Against All Odds comes when Hernandez runs off the ropes, charging towards Eric Young, but Young takes Hernandez down with a drop toe hold and Eric then slowly climbs to the top rope, but before he can settle in, “Super Mex” is back on his feet and he walks over to the corner, lifting Young up by his arms in position for the Border Toss, but Eric slips out of Hernandez’s grasps and lands on his feet behind Hernandez, rolling up the giant and getting his feet on the ropes! 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner | Eric Young @ 8:03
“We Are World Elite” plays and a beaming Eric Young gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee to a lot of heat from the crowd. With a shot at the Global Championship against D’Angelo Dinero at Against All Odds now sealed for the former Champion, Young pulls away from the official and is about to leave the ring, but then “Catholi-Funk” blares out and D’Angelo Dinero runs out, quickly making his way down the ramp and entering the ring, immediately taking down Eric Young! The crowd go wild as Dinero unloads on Young with fists of fury, and both get back to their feet as Eric runs at Dinero but “The Pope” ducks out of the way and Young crashes into the corner of the ring! Dinero prepares to go in for the kill, as he begins to run across the ring but at exactly the wrong time, as security guards rush to the ring in time and block Dinero’s path, separating the two adversaries as the crowd boo, chanting “Let Them Fight!” repeatedly.
Mike Tenay: All hell was breaking loose in the ring between “The Pope” D’Angelo Dinero and Eric Young, but security managed to break it up!
Taz: Damnit, I wanted to see these two go at it to get a sneak preview of Against All Odds, Professor! I’m with the fans on this one – let them fight!
Dinero and Young are soon taken away from the ring, being escorted up the ramp separately, but although they can’t get their hands on each other right now, their hatred for each other remains the same.
Mike Tenay: These two men will square off at Against All Odds when “The Pope” defends his Global Championship, and more fuel has just been added to the fire of the rivalry between these two competitors, Taz.
Taz: I didn’t think it could get any more intense, Mike, but obviously I was wrong!
Flying In Style
Backstage, AJ Styles is sitting on a chair in his locker room, with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship placed on a table nearby. Then, Jeff Hardy walks in, as Styles stands up.
Jeff Hardy: Hey, man. I just wanted to wish you luck for your match against Desmond later on. I’m facing him at Against All Odds and hopefully I kick his ass just as much as you will tonight.
AJ Styles: ‘Preciate it. I know you’ve got your match against Anderson next week, so good luck with that too.
Jeff Hardy: Alright, I’ll see ya’ later.
Hardy turns around to leave, but Eric Bischoff is standing there, and he smiles at Jeff before he talks to both of them.
Eric Bischoff: How’s it going, guys? I figured that seeing as you’re both here I may as well break the news to you now. You obviously know that on February 15th, Impact moves to Monday nights...
The crowd pop at the mention of the move.
Eric Bischoff: And a main event has yet to be made. Now, it’s you, AJ, against Wolfe tonight and next week it’s you, Jeff, against Anderson, so on February 15th, it’s gonna be you two facing Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson. Enjoy the rest of the night, guys.
Bischoff then turns on his heel and walks out, as Styles and Hardy look at each other, knowing that they will be tag team partners when Impact moves to Monday nights.
Mike Tenay: Wow! What a huge match made for February 15th when Impact moves to Monday nights, it’ll be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles teaming with Jeff Hardy to face Mr. Anderson and Desmond Wolfe!
Taz: It’s gonna be off the hook, Professor, but the question is, on that date, one night after Against All Odds, who will be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion; will it still be AJ Styles, or will it be my man Mr. Anderson?
Mike Tenay: You seem to have a lot of “men”, Taz, sometimes I feel like I don’t know you well enough.
Taz: By men I mean friends, y’know? Oh, who am I kidding, Mike, you don’t. Haha!
Don’t Turn Your Back...
Back on Impact, “Motorcity” blares out and the crowd pop as Chris Sabin walks out, accompanied by his Motor City Machine Guns compatriot Alex Shelley. The duo stand back-to-back and point to the ring before walking down the ramp, Shelley waving at the camera, and entering the ring, as they both climb to the second rope on opposite sides of the ring and point their index fingers to their opposite palms, signifying their hometown of Detroit, before climbing back down and waiting for Sabin’s opponent to arrive.
Mike Tenay: These two men will be in action at Against All Odds alongside Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall as they face Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and two mystery partners in an Unsanctioned Street Fight, but tonight Sabin is in action as he takes on Waltman, a partial preview of February 14th, so to speak.
Taz: The ascent of these two guys has been awesome, Mike, Hulk Hogan said that he was going to help make big stars in TNA, and the Motor City Machine Guns epitomize that in my opinion, Professor.
Then, “Tuning Up The Band” plays and the crowd boo as Sean Waltman makes his way out, with Kevin Nash in tow. The exuberant Waltman makes his way down the ramp, taunting the fans and giving them crotch chops whereas Nash is calm and collected as always, as he tries to calm Sean down and make him focus on the task in hand whilst they enter the ring, immediately preparing for the match.
Match 4 | Singles
Chris Sabin vs. Sean Waltman
The bell rings and Chris Sabin is ready to lock up, as is Sean Waltman by the looks of it, but looks can be deceiving and instead of locking up with Sabin, Waltman kicks the former X Division Champion in the mid-section and begins to unload on Sabin with relentless right hands, then running off the ropes and heading towards Sabin, but Chris leapfrogs over Sean and when Waltman turns around, Sabin takes him down with a dropkick! The crowd cheer as Sabin nips back up and shouts “Hail Sabin!” as the crowd repeat those words and he then gets Waltman back to his feet, wrenching his arm and taking Sean down with an arm drag. Waltman gets back up and Sabin goes for it again, but Sean counters it and takes Sabin down with an arm drag of his own. Sabin gets back up and Waltman kicks Sabin in the mid-section, getting him in a front facelock and lifting him up off his feet and into the air for a suplex, but Sabin lands on his feet behind Waltman and goes for a back drop, only for Sean to land on his feet and hit Sabin with a sit-out rear mat slam. Waltman makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Sabin gets the shoulder up, and Sean shouts “C’mon, man!” at the innocent referee before getting Sabin to his feet and Irish whipping him into the corner, running at him but Sabin counters with a back body drop, only for Waltman to land on his feet on the ring apron and when Sabin turns around, Sean grabs hold of Sabin’s neck and pulls it down against the ropes, as he then re-enters the ring and takes Sabin down with a bulldog! Waltman gives Sabin some crotch chops for extra measure and he then sets Sabin in the corner of the ring, with Sabin in a seated position, and Waltman backs into the opposite corner, before running across the ring and going for his trademark bronco buster, but Sabin moves out of the way in the nick of time and he misses his target! Sabin gets Waltman to his feet and wrenches his arm, kicking him in the mid-section and wrapping his legs around Waltman’s head, sending him into the corner with a hurricanrana. Sabin then runs at Waltman and jumps onto him, before sending the cocky degenerate across the ring with a monkey flip and he then makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Waltman kicks out.
The ending of this match comes when Chris Sabin and Sean Waltman both get to their feet after taking each other out with a double clothesline and they trade blows, Waltman gaining the upper hand in the exchange and going for the X Factor, but Sabin pushes Waltman away and when Sean comes running back, Sabin lifts Waltman up onto the back of his shoulders in position for the Cradle Shock, but Sabin sees Kevin Nash taunting him on the outside of the ring and Sabin turns to him, talking trash back to “Big Sexy” but it proves to be a costly distraction for Sabin, as Waltman slips off his shoulders, kicks him in the mid-section, and nails Sabin with the X Factor! Waltman then makes the cover on Sabin, with victory more or less assured now, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner | Sean Waltman @ 8:37
“Tuning Up The Band” plays, and Sean Waltman raises his hands in the air, ignoring the referee, as the crowd boo him. Kevin Nash enters the ring and he and Waltman continue the assault on Chris Sabin, but Alex Shelley tries to make the save, fighting off Waltman but when Shelley turns around, Nash kicks him in the mid-section, lifts him up, and nails Shelley with the Jack-Knife Powerbomb! Sabin is now back on his feet, but Nash runs off the ropes, and flattens Sabin with a Big Boot! The Motor City Machine Guns are now down and out, and Nash and Waltman stand tall, as Nash reaches into his back pocket, and reveals a can of spraypaint. Nash, who has a grin on his face, shakes it up and then spray-paints “4 Life” on Alex Shelley’s back, before doing the same to Chris Sabin’s back as well.
The crowd boo Nash and Waltman as they stand over Sabin and Shelley, but then Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall appear and make their way down the ramp, heading for the ring, but Nash and Waltman quickly leave the ring and climb over the security barricade, exiting through the crowd as Hall and Hogan, both livid, watch them high-tail it before checking on the Motor City Machine Guns.
Mike Tenay: Disgusting actions from Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman, spray-painting on the Motor City Machine Guns, but luckily Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall made them get the hell out of there before things got even worse!
Taz: Chris Sabin was unlucky not to win that match against Sean Waltman, and he and Alex Shelley paid the price, but they’ll wanna even the score at Against All Odds in the Unsanctioned Street Fight!
Mike Tenay: Coming up next, ladies and gentlemen, it is our main event; the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles taking on Desmond Wolfe!
It’s Feeding Time...
Backstage, Christy Hemme is standing by, with Desmond Wolfe at her side.
Christy Hemme: I’m standing by with Desmond Wolfe, who in just a few moments will be facing the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles. Desmond, do you think this is an opportunity to show Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan that you’re World Champion material?
Desmond Wolfe: Are you having a laugh, missy? Mr. Bischoff and Mr. Hogan should know that I’m World Champion material, since I arrived in TNA, I have carried this company on my shoulders the entire way, and my shoulder’s aren’t aching yet. If I’m going to show them anything, I’m going to show them that a window-licker like AJ Styles is not the kind of fella to be TNA World Heavyweight Champion, and neither is Mr. Anderson ... the only deserving guy is me.
Heat for Wolfe after showing how arrogant he is.
Desmond Wolfe: And as well as that, I’m going to show Jeff Hardy what he can expect at Against All Odds. He was bloody lucky he didn’t have to face me at Genesis, but on February 14th, Jeff, you have no-where to run. You can’t hide at your home ‘cause it might be burnt down again by the time you get there and you can’t hide amongst these wankers you call your fans.
More heat for the Brit.
Desmond Wolfe: But right now, Jeff, you’re the least of my concerns, just like you should be for everybody else, if only they were as smart as me. Right now, my concern is AJ Styles, and AJ, I’m hungry like a wolf ... and now, it’s feeding time.
Wolfe removes his shades and winks at the camera, before pompously walking out of the shot on his way to the ring.
Back on Impact, the camera is set backstage, where Eric Bischoff is sitting in his office and moments later, Beer Money walk in, not looking very happy.
Eric Bischoff: Is there ... anything I can do for you?
Robert Roode: You’re damn right there is, Bischoff! Me and James wanna know, why you changed the tag team match at Against All Odds to a Fatal Four Way.
James Storm: We earned our title shot last week, Eric, we earned a straight-up tag team match with the British Invasion and you go and mess it all up, ‘cause you think “controversy creates cash” well lemme’ tell ya’ something, Bischoff, we don’t like controversy when it’s messin’ with Beer Money, and if you give us this kind of crap again ... then sorry ‘bout your damn luck.
Roode and Storm then turn on their heel and walk out, as Bischoff looks on, appearing to be confused.
Eric Bischoff: I thought you wanted me to tell you why? ... Eh, oh well.
Eric then slouches back in his chair, relaxing...
Silencing The Howl...
“Hungry Like A Wolfe” blares out to heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe walks out, making his signature two-fingered gesture with both hands before walking down the ramp and towards the ring. Wearing black shades and a blue jacket over his gear, Wolfe enters the ring and slowly removes his shades, giving the crowd the two fingers once again before walking into the corner of the ring, waiting for his opponent to arrive.
Mike Tenay: The arrogance of Desmond Wolfe, some would say, is unparalelled. But unlike some who like to brag, this guy can sure put his money where his mouth is in the ring.
Taz: In my opinion, Professor, Desmond Wolfe doesn’t brag, he just gives straight-up facts. I’m a believer of that, so what he says I believe to be true, even when he says he’ll beat AJ Styles tonight and Jeff Hardy at Against All Odds.
Mike Tenay: I think Wolfe can get ahead of himself from time to time, and that could be a prime example.
Then, “Get Ready To Fly” blares out and the crowd pop as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles makes his way out and flicks back his blue hood on his sleeveless jacket covering his face, throwing his arms out as fireworks ascend from the stage and Styles walks down the ramp, entering the ring and unstrapping his title from around his waist as he climbs to the second rope and holds it aloft before climbing back down and preparing for his match with Desmond Wolfe.
Match 5 | Singles Match
World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles vs. Desmond Wolfe
The bell rings and AJ Styles and Desmond Wolfe, after having a heated stare-down and talking trash to each other, lock up, with both men trying to over-power each other until Wolfe gains the upper hand as he wrenches AJ’s arm, pulling him in to hit him with a shoulder block and then repeating the process until Wolfe Irish whips Styles off the ropes and goes for a clothesline, but AJ ducks out of the way and runs off the ropes again, running at Wolfe who lies down on the canvas as AJ jumps over him and runs off the ropes again, but this time Wolfe takes Styles down with an arm drag. AJ gets back up and the two competitors circle each other around the ring for a few seconds before locking up again and Wolfe moves behind Styles, getting the TNA World Heavyweight Champion in a waistlock which AJ soon breaks out of, and when he does, Styles nails Wolfe with a Péle kick, so effective that Wolfe goes through the ropes and out of the ring upon impact, no pun intended. With Wolfe on the outside of the ring, Styles runs off the ropes and charges across the ring, going through the ropes and taking out himself and Wolfe with a high-risk but high-reward suicide dive! Both men lie motionlessly on the ramp after that, and a replay is shown of the suicide dive, before both men slowly get back to their feet and enter the ring. Styles and Wolfe trade right hands and AJ gains the upper hand in the exchange, then running off the ropes and towards his opponent, but Wolfe lifts Styles up and nails “The Phenomenal One” with a powerslam! Wolfe then makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Styles gets the shoulder up!
Afterwards, Desmond Wolfe who is annoyed but deep down not too surprised that he didn’t win the match then and there after that powerslam, gets AJ Styles to his feet and hits Styles with a few right hands before Irish whipping him into the corner and then running at Styles, but AJ leaps over the ropes onto the ring apron as Wolfe fails to meet his target but manages to stop himself before he crashes into the turnbuckles. However, AJ then jumps onto the ropes and springboards off of them, hitting Wolfe and taking the Brit down with a flying forearm to the back of the skull! Styles then makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Wolfe kicks out. Styles gets Desmond to his feet and wrenches his arm, throwing some right hands in Wolfe’s direction before Irish whipping him off the ropes and then hitting Wolfe with a picture-perfect dropkick! Styles makes the cover again, 1...... 2...... Desmond Wolfe kicks out again. AJ once again gets Wolfe up and sets him up in the corner of the ring, lifting him onto the top rope and climbing up himself. Once he is up there, Wolfe hits Styles with a few punches and gets the TNA World Heavyweight Champion in position for a superplex, but AJ quickly fights out of it and pushes Desmond off the top rope and down to the canvas! However, Wolfe lands on his feet on the canvas and he then forces his weight down on the ropes, as Styles loses his balance and slips up on the top rope! AJ falls and is hanging on the top rope by his feet, as Wolfe senses an opportunity, and he takes Styles by the neck, and nails AJ with the Tower Of London! However, Wolfe takes a while to make the pinfall as AJ moves across the ring upon impact from that move and Desmond, who is rather tired as a result of this match, makes the cover, 1...... 2...... 3- No! Styles gets his foot on the bottom rope!
The ending of this enthralling Impact main event comes when Desmond Wolfe has taken AJ Styles down with a dropkick, and Wolfe eagerly waits for Styles to get to his feet. AJ slowly gets up, and Wolfe tilts in between the ropes, before charging at Styles to go for the Jawbreaker Lariat, but AJ ducks it, kicks Wolfe in the mid-section, lifts up his legs, and hits Wolfe with the Styles Clash! The crowd pop and an exhausted Styles slowly makes his way out onto the ring apron, jumping onto the ropes, springboarding off them, and connecting with the 450 Splash on Wolfe! Styles slowly hooks Wolfe’s legs, making what is surely the match-winning cover, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner | AJ Styles @ 10:25
“Get Ready To Fly” plays again and the crowd cheer as AJ Styles gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee before being handed his TNA World Heavyweight Championship, which he takes and raises in the air, but then Mr. Anderson runs down the ramp, enters the ring, and attacks Styles from behind! The crowd boo Anderson as he assaults the man he will face at Against All Odds, but Jeff Hardy runs out and heads to the ring to make the save! Hardy attacks the man he will face next week on Impact, and Jeff gets him up, going for the Twist Of Fate, but Anderson escapes from Hardy’s grasps and quickly leaves the ring, staggering up the ramp. Hardy helps Styles to his feet, but as soon as AJ is up, he leaves the ring, and runs after Mr. Anderson, who speeds up and disappears backstage!
Mike Tenay: Mr. Anderson can run but he sure can’t hide from AJ Styles!
Taz: Where the hell are they goin’?!
Mike Tenay: We need a camera back there! Go, go, go!
Ask and you shall receive, Mike; the camera cuts backstage, where Mr. Anderson is running down a corridor, constantly looking over his shoulder, and Anderson tries to speed up when he sees AJ Styles hot on his heels. Anderson runs through some double-doors into the parking lot, closely followed by AJ, and Anderson runs towards the limousine Ric Flair gave to him earlier tonight, hopping in the back seat with a chauffeur in the driver’s seat ready to go, and before Styles can get his hands on his rival, Anderson speeds away in the limo!
The camera briefly cuts back to the ring where Desmond Wolfe and Jeff Hardy are fighting as they trade right hands and Wolfe gains the upper hand, taking down Hardy with a clothesline and then hanging in between the ropes before running at Hardy, going for the Jawbreaker Lariat, but Jeff ducks it and then kicks Wolfe in the mid-section, nailing Wolfe with the Twist Of Fate! Hardy subsequently climbs to the top rope and signals to the crowd, before hitting Wolfe with a Swanton Bomb for good measure!
Impact comes to a close with the camera set in the parking lot, where AJ Styles is standing alone, having come so close to finally getting his hands on his challenger for his TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Against All Odds in eleven days’ time but not quite being able to thanks to divine intervention, some would say from Ric Flair...
Mike Tenay: Close, but no cigar! AJ Styles was hell-bent on getting his hands on Mr. Anderson, and he almost did, but luckily for Anderson he was able to get away in the nick of time! As Impact’s move to Monday nights, February 15th, nears, where AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy face Desmond Wolfe, no matter whether Styles walks out of Against All Odds as TNA World Heavyweight Champion or Anderson does, we wish you a good night!

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Lockdown Venue Revealed!
TNA's official website TNAwrestling.com has revealed that Lockdown, taking place on April 18th where every match is inside the steel cage, will be held at the Dallas Convention Center Arena in Dallas, Texas! The arena has a maximum capacity of 7, 428 and tickets for the event go on sale this Saturday, so how many tickets will be sold is not known but TNA President Dixie Carter is hoping for a good turn-out.
Impact Preview For February 11, 2010
TNA Impact returns to Spike this Thursday night for the final broadcast before this Sunday's Pay-Per-View, Against All Odds, and Impact's move to Monday nights! Don't forget, this Monday night, Impact starts at 8/7CT so be sure to tune in and make the change to TNA!
Mr. Anderson, who will challenge 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at Against All Odds, squares off against Jeff Hardy, who will face Desmond Wolfe on Sunday night, in our Impact main event! With Styles and Wolfe, who were opponents last week in our Impact main event, undoubtedly watching, who will gain good momentum heading into the Pay-Per-View?
Also, we will hear from 'The Wrestling Machine' Kurt Angle, who has had issues with 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair as of late. What will Angle have to say to the TNA fans and, more importantly, Flair?
The TNA World Tag Team Champions The British Invasion team with their World Elite leader Eric Young to take on one of the three teams Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams will defend their belts against this Sunday at Against All Odds, Beer Money, and the man who Young will face on Sunday in a bid to reclaim the TNA Global Championship, 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero in six-man tag team action!
That's not the only tag team match on offer though, because two of the four teams competing for the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Against All Odds, Generation Me and Lethal Consequences who were opponents a few weeks ago, square off! Which high-flying tandem will prevail?
Speaking of high-flying, the X Division Champion Amazing Red will be in action, as he faces Brian Kendrick in his final match before his title defense against Daniels this Sunday at Against All Odds! With 'The Fallen Angel' most likely keeping a close eye on the action, can Red send Daniels a message?
Plus, Kazarian returns to the ring in his first TNA match in just under two years following his return last week, as he takes on Homicide! Kazarian will face 'The Samoan Submission Machine' Samoa Joe this Sunday at Against All Odds, so can he shake off his ring rust and prevail over 'The Loose Cannon' this Thursday?
See all of this and more by tuning into Spike this Thursday at 9/8CT to watch Impact!
TNA Impact moves to Monday nights on February 15th! See the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles team with 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy to face 'The Green Bay God' Mr. Anderson and Desmond Wolfe! See the monumental show live at 8PM, only on SpikeTV this Monday! Make the change...

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Interesting promo to open the show, seemingly establishing that a Flair/Anderson relationship is in the works and will continue to develop. Not sure what the significance of the limo is, but I guess it will play some role in the show. Thought this was an alright promo character-wise, and while I found the ending kind of lame, that’s more of a problem I have with how over the top Anderson’s character has been in TNA.
No Kurt? I don’t believe that’ll actually happen, but it’s a nice way to show his desperation and how much he wants to get his hands on Flair.
Small thing, but nice hyping of both this show and Against All Odds with the commentators to kick the show off.
The X Division is never a bad way to kick the wrestling aspect of the show off, and it seemed like a nice opener. The only thing that I’d say would be that perhaps Red should have looked a little better instead of just reversing into his finisher right at the end, because this really was his match to be showcased in. I understand wanting to keep Homicide looking good and putting on an entertaining match, but I would have liked to have seen a basic comeback before the finisher from Red.
Alright promo after the match here, although it didn’t feel too right for Daniels. The putting the X Division on the map stuff is all well and good, but it lacked that feel it should have. I suggest you check out PatMan’s old TNA thread, because I thought he did Daniels perfectly. Don West was about right though, and the little brawl afterwards was alright, although security dragging Red away, rather than him walking away, would have been better imo.
Joe was alright here, although the way in which he spoke of Kendrick, a line about him not being a challenge at all to go along with the open challenge thing was screaming out to be had. Kaz coming out to accept the challenge, just not yet? While I like the idea of this and the way it makes Kaz look like a star by his return match being hyped for Pay-Per-View, against Samoa Joe no less, I thought this open challenge could have and should have gone on a little longer with a few more squashes before a real challenge emerged. I personally think this would have been best off left until Destination X, giving Joe more credibility from this gig before someone bigger, like Kaz, stepped up. Still, with all things considered (Kaz’s pretty horrible mic skills), this was a pretty damn good segment, and I think you worked well with what you had. Was maybe a bit short, but still, good.
You’re plugging the hell out of this move to Monday nights. It better be good.
Erm, random CM Punk shot was extremely weird, and extremely unnecessary. Little things like this from TNA irk me, as it kind of gives off the vibe that they need to mention WWE on air. It’s bad enough irl, so I don’t really want to see it happening in BTB. I know I’ve said things in the past about your tag matches involving no teamwork, so I’m glad to see that wasn’t the case here at the beginning. Very, very surprised you had Lethal Consequences pick up the victory here, as it was extremely out of the blue – perhaps too much so – as you yourself said the reaction from the crowd to them was lacklustre.
Eric Bischoff coming out and announcing the change to the tag title match was fine in character and all, but I’m not sure about this in a few ways. First of all, Beer Money were ripped off here. Majorly. And unless that leads somewhere that isn’t a good thing. Secondly, while you put Generation Me over a bit with Bischoff, I simply don’t buy into them as credible tag challengers at this point. After losing a chance to get a shot last week, they shouldn’t then be given a shot anyway the next week. I wouldn’t mind the booking behind this so much if I didn’t think the two teams who have just been included (one in particular) belonged, but I don’t think they do at this stage.
Jesus Christ, Doug Williams and Brutus Magnus are ninjas. They got back from inside the ring to backstage at the speed of light.
Good to see Bischoff making Young at least try to fight fairly for the title match, making him look more credible as a challenger.
Just a small thing, but the character of Eric Young is someone who is clever and cunning, so for him to be stupid enough to get into a test of strength against Hernandez at the start of the match completely goes against the character that Young has. With that said, the match apart from that seemed alright, although Young again cheating to win was a bit surprising, as I thought you would give him some momentum. Still, it makes him look smart again and allows him to heel it up.
Another little brawl after the match? So far we’ve had two of those and a staredown, which is a little bit repetitive. Still, the way in which this was written with Pope just being denied the Dinero Express was pretty cool.
Despite not a lot of character being in this segment for obvious reasons (neither men have any
), this was a pretty nice way to hype up both a pretty major main event for next week, and your Monday debut. Surprised you’re not pulling out someone like Hogan for that since he’s already wrestling at Against All Odds, but I must say that I’m happy you’re giving the youth (and the guys who actually matter) the chance to shine, rather than the guys who belong in a retirement home (Hogan).
Nice little match, although I thought the ending was a little weak, with Nash just talking trash. Definitely should have climbed up onto the apron. I would have thought that Hall should have interfered during the match too, since that is what this angle is originally built on in Hall screwing The Band up, but I guess him making the save with Hogan will have to do.
Nice little promo from Wolfe, both hyping up the main event and the match with Hardy at Against All Odds. Again, the little shot at Hardy, like last week, seemed a little off and out of place, although apart from that I thought this was a much, much better Wolfe promo. Character was better, and the delivery seemed right.
Glad to see Beer Money aren’t letting the situation go unaddressed. Beer Money not staying to even listen to Bischoff was odd, although like I said, I’m happy to see this situation addressed, rather than ignored.
Decent enough main event here. My only complaints would have to be that AJ used the Pele way to early in the match, especially considering he was using it as a finisher in the not too distant past, and that the Tower of London maybe came a bit too soon, and that Wolfe shouldn’t have been too tired since it came relatively early in the match. Still, apart from that a good main event, that allows AJ to look very good heading into Against All Odds. The show ending with Jeff getting the best of Wolfe, while Anderson just escaped with use of the limo from earlier was pretty cool, and a nice way to continue to entangle these two feuds, at least for now, possibly even leading to a four way at Destination X which wouldn’t be too bad at all. Pretty cool finish.
While I thought this was a big improvement on last week in terms of the writing, a lot on this show seemed much the same. I don’t know if it’s just me, but all of your heels and all of your faces seem to have the same type of character, which I know happens, but they have nothing that is really distinguishing them in their feuds, which also probably comes from the same type of run in thing happening over and over again. I just think characters are different, and they’re going to do different things due to different motivation. Still, like I said, this was an improvement on last week, and not a bad step at all towards Against All Odds.

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
So, I decided to post this show in recap. I wrote it before I could take some of the constructive criticism into account, so what you'll think of it I don't know but it isn't my best. The next show, February 15th (Move to Mondays~!) won't be in recap, and I'll post a predictions template for Against All Odds over the course of the next few days. Thanks.
TNA Impact | February 11, 2010
Impact Zone | Orlando, Florida
The Final Pit-Stop...
Impact begins with Kazarian in action in his first match since returning to TNA last week, and he is up against Homicide. Kazarian looks rather fresh in this contest, using some quick offence against his opponent, but Homicide soon brings Kaz down to Earth and takes control as the match progresses. On more occasions than one, it looks like Homicide could win this match, getting a few near falls, but Kazarian refuses to quit, as he fights on and in the end it pays off as Homicide goes for the Gringo Killa but Kazarian flips backwards and lands on his feet in front of Homicide, then nailing him with the Wave Of The Future! Kaz then makes the cover and picks up the victory, making his return to the TNA ring a successful one.
After the match, Kazarian celebrates his victory but the party is cut short when Samoa Joe makes his way out to the ring and the two men, who will face off this Sunday at Against All Odds, have a heated stare-down until Joe breaks the ice and takes Kaz down, unloading on him with blows, but Kazarian soon turns the tables on his adversary, and they continue to brawl until security guards come to the ring, and break it up! The crowd chant “Let Them Fight!” as both men try to break free of security to continue their brawl, but to no avail, as Impact begins in a somewhat tumultuous way.
Back on Impact, Kurt Angle makes his way out to the ring, in his gear and gets on the microphone, saying that his career has gone downhill lately. He’s had Desmond Wolfe humiliate him on his debut, he’s had Ric Flair screw him out of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, and now he can’t receive another title opportunity this year. Angle says that he won’t let it get him down, because he will keep fighting to get back to where he belongs; the top of TNA. Angle states that he will go through anybody and everybody to show the world that Kurt Angle is no push-over, he is “The Wrestling Machine”, and he could break every single bone in any guy’s body he pleases! The crowd cheer Angle who looks very intense, but then Kurt is interrupted when his adversary, Ric Flair, walks out and says to Angle that things aren’t going to get better for him, they can only get worse, because after this Sunday, Kurt will have to look at Mr. Anderson as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion!
The crowd boo Flair after that comment, and Ric says that the sympathy of the fans won’t get him anywhere, but Kurt comes back saying that Flair should come down to the ring and say all of the crap he just spewed out to his face. Ric says he doesn’t have the time to deal with somebody like him, but he has found somebody who can do it for him, and Sean Morley runs out, heading straight for the ring, but as soon as he steps into the squared circle, Angle throws Morley across the ring with a belly-to-belly suplex! Angle, not wasting any time, gets him straight back up, and nails Morley with the Angle Slam! Looking directly at Flair, Angle locks Morley in the Ankle Lock, and he taps almost straight away!!!
Kurt has his hand raised by the referee and Flair shakes his head, disappointed with the result of the match. Angle looks at Flair and smirks, as Ric mouths at Kurt that “This isn’t over” before disappearing behind the curtain, his attempt to make Angle pay thwarted.
Backstage, Christy Hemme is standing by, and she welcomes her guest, the X Division Champion Amazing Red, who is accompanied by Don West. Christy asks Red about his title defence against Daniels this Sunday at Against All Odds, but before Red or West can answer, Red is attacked by Daniels! Daniels stomps away at Red and pummels him with punches to the head, then getting him to his feet and throwing him into the interview set! West is astonished and he keeps his distance from “The Fallen Angel”, until Eric Bischoff walks into the shot, looking pissed off, and he asks Daniels what the hell he is doing, as Daniels answers that he’s getting revenge after what Red did to him last week. Bischoff says that Red has a match next, and seeing that he’s not fit to compete now, Daniels will take his place in the match! “The Fallen Angel”, instead of being unhappy, seems to endorse it, and thanks Bischoff before walking away, on his way to the ring.
Back from the break, it’s Daniels taking on Brian Kendrick, in a match the X Division Champion Amazing Red was supposed to compete in but now cannot due to Daniels’ attack moments ago backstage. Daniels and Kendrick have a great match which showcases the X Division to the brink, with both competitors busting out some dazzling moves and both almost winning the match on more than one occasion, but after Kendrick fails to connect with the Kendrick, Daniels flattens him with a clothesline. Before Daniels can mount any further offence, Amazing Red slowly makes his way out, holding his ribs, and he slowly hobbles down the ramp, which distracts “The Fallen Angel”, who berates the hurt X Division Champion and shouts at him to get the hell out of here. However, whilst Daniels is distracted, Kendrick rolls him up with a schoolboy pin, and gets the victory, picking up a huge win over Daniels!
Despite Kendrick being a heel, the crowd give a mixed reaction after he defeats Daniels, and he leaves the ring, walking up the ramp and brushing shoulders with Amazing Red who likes what he sees at the sight of Daniels soaking up his loss. However, Kendrick has second thoughts, and he turns around, grabbing Red and taking him down the ramp, throwing him under the ropes and into the ropes for Daniels! The crowd boo Kendrick as he departs, and “The Fallen Angel” taunts Red, before getting him up, and hitting Red with the Angel’s Wings! Not done, Daniels then jumps to the second rope and then to the top rope, before nailing Red with the Best Moonsault Ever! The crowd boo Daniels who stands over Red with a grin on his face as paramedics rush to the ring and check on Red, who has taken a lot of punishment so far tonight at the hands of Daniels.
The man who will face Red this Sunday leaves the ring and Don West walks out, jogging down the ramp towards the ring, but Daniels grabs West by his shirt collar, and throws him to the ground! Daniels walks up the ramp as a traumatized West looks on, appearing to be very worried, not only for himself, but for his associate Amazing Red this Sunday.
Backstage, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, the Motor City Machine Guns, are walking down a corridor, and they stop outside Eric Bischoff’s office, which they walk into, and Bischoff is sitting behind his desk, but he stands up and greets the ‘Guns as they walk in. Sabin impatiently asks Bischoff where Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman are, and Shelley adds that they don’t want to wait for Against All Odds, because they want Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman in a Street Fight right here tonight! The crowd go wild at the suggestion of that match, but Bischoff apologises to them, before informing Sabin and Shelley that he has given Nash and Waltman the night off tonight. The crowd give a mixed reaction, they cheer because they don’t have to see Nash and Waltman tonight, but boo because there is no chance of Sabin and Shelley getting their revenge on them after what happened last week. Bischoff adds that it’s a good thing too because they would have given him more crap than he’s already had to deal with tonight, and the ‘Guns, both disappointed, thank Bischoff before walking out.
Back on Impact, it’s Generation Me versus Lethal Consequences, two teams that will compete, alongside Beer Money and the British Invasion, for the TNA World Tag Team Championships this Sunday at Against All Odds, and a repeat match of Generation Me’s debut, where they defeated Lethal and Creed. Both teams put in a valiant effort, and the Bucks come close to winning, almost connecting with their finisher, More Bang For Your Buck, but Lethal saves his partner Creed as he pushes Max Buck off the top rope and down to the concrete floor. When the match reaches a stalemate and neither team can seem to be able to gain the upper hand, the TNA World Tag Team Champions the British Invasion head to the ring and attack the legal men in the ring, Lethal and Jeremy!
The crowd boo the Brits as Brutus Magnus and Doug Williams then target Consequences Creed and Max Buck, attacking them and taking them out, but then Beer Money, who will face the British Invasion in a six-man tag team match later tonight that will also include the Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero and Eric Young, head to the ring and make the save, as Magnus and Williams quickly leave the ring and exit through the crowd! Robert Roode and James Storm help all four of the other men in the ring to their feet, but they won’t be as nice this Sunday when the TNA World Tag Team Championships are at stake...
TNA Impact moves to Monday nights on February 15th! See AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy face Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson in a huge tag team match, plus see Hulk Hogan, Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, D’Angelo Dinero and more! See the monumental show live this Monday at 8PM, only on SpikeTV! Make the change...
Back on Impact, the camera is at the announce table, and Mike Tenay and Taz welcome us back to the show before running through the card for this Sunday’s Pay-Per-View, Against All Odds; AJ Styles defending the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Mr. Anderson, Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and the Motor City Machine Guns facing Kevin Nash, Sean Waltman and two mystery partners, Desmond Wolfe and Jeff Hardy going one-on-one, D’Angelo Dinero putting the Global Championship on the line against Eric Young, Amazing Red defending the X Division Championship against Daniels, the returning Kazarian against Samoa Joe, and a fatal four way elimination match for the TNA World Tag Team Championships involving the reigning Champions the British Invasion, Beer Money, Generation Me and Lethal Consequences.
Next up is the six-man tag team match involving the TNA World Tag Team Champions the British Invasion, Eric Young and the opposing trio, Beer Money and the Global Champion, D’Angelo Dinero. Roode and Young, two former members of Team Canada, start off the match and Roode dominates in the opening stages of their encounter until Eric turns it around thanks to an eye-rake which goes un-noticed by the referee and Young is then in control, tagging Doug Williams into the match who picks up where the former Global Champion left off, stomping away at one of men he will be in the ring with this Sunday in the fatal four way tag team elimination match at Against All Odds for the TNA World Tag Team Championships. Roode is isolated inside the ring as he is not given any opportunities to tag out, but after reversing an scoop slam by Williams into a reverse DDT, Roode tags in D’Angelo Dinero, who comes in like a house on fire as he takes Doug down with a clothesline as soon as he gets back up and then knocks Brutus Magnus and his arch-adversary Eric Young off the ring apron, before hitting Williams, who gets back up again, with a flying forearm and making the cover, only for the Brit to kick out on the count of 2. After all six men involved in this match get a good amount of time in the match, the end of the match comes with Brutus Magnus and D’Angelo Dinero in the ring. Magnus in down, but in the corner of the ring where Williams and Young are stood and when Brutus gets to his feet, Eric makes the blind tag but he bides his time as Dinero wrenches Magnus’ arm and nails him with the Dinero Experience! As soon as Dinero hits his finishing manoeuvre, Young enters the ring and kicks “The Pope” in the mid-section, lifting him up and hitting the Piledriver! Eric then makes the cover as Doug Williams runs across the ring and distracts Roode and Storm and Young makes the cover, picking up the victory for his team!
An esctatic Eric Young has his hand raised in victory and Young immediately leaves the ring, walking up the ramp having pinned the man he will challenge for the Global Championship at Against All Odds. Once Magnus has recovered, he and Williams leave the ring, having got the upper hand over one of the teams they will face this Sunday, Beer Money.
Daniels is backstage, walking down a corridor with a smirk on his face, but he is confronted by Hulk Hogan, who is not happy with “The Fallen Angel”. Hogan asks Daniels why he attacked Red again in the ring, and Daniels says that he can do whatever he wants and everybody will know that when he becomes X Division Champion this Sunday. Hogan tells Daniels he was seriously considering stripping him of the opportunity earlier tonight and even considering firing him, but he’s not going to, only if none of this happens again tonight or at Against All Odds before or after the match. Daniels agrees and Hogan lets him know that this Monday on Impact, there is going to be an X Division Open and he is one of the men involved, so he will either be defending the X Division Title or challenging for it. Daniels looks happy, and he thanks Hogan before walking away, “The Hulkster” disappointed that he only uplifted Daniels’ spirits.
Elsehwere, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin are walking through the parking lot, looking like they’re leaving as they’re carrying bags over their shoulders, but they suddenly drop them and both run in the same direction, all being justified when the camera zooms out, and Scott Hall is lying on the concrete floor, bleeding profusely from his forehead. Sabin and Shelley are astonished, and they check on Hall, holding him up and shouting for paramedics. Eventually some EMT’s rush to the scene and they see Hall, loading him onto a stretcher and one calls an ambulance on their phone, as they continue to check on “The Bad Guy” and the Motor City Machine Guns anxiously look on. The culprits of this heinious attack should be pretty obvious by now...
Back on Impact, it is now time for the main event of the night; “The Charismatic Enigma” Jeff Hardy squaring off against the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Mr. Anderson. In the opening stages, Anderson can’t handle Hardy, as Jeff is all over him, not giving the cocky loud-mouth a chance to compose himself. Eventually, when Hardy goes for a suplex and Anderson lands on his feet to take Jeff down to the canvas with a back drop, Anderson takes control of this contest, slowing the pace of the match down which doesn’t favour Hardy and wearing him down with stomps and an abdominal stretch which he keeps locked in on Hardy until Jeff manages to fight out of it after being encouraged by the crowd and when he does, Hardy gets back into the match, hitting Anderson with some right hands and then running off the ropes, taking Anderson off his feet and down to the canvas with a dropkick. After that Hardy is in control until Anderson hits Jeff with a powerslam and then the balance of power swings back in his favour, but when Anderson gets Hardy to his feet and Irish whips Jeff into the corner of the ring, Hardy jumps to the top rope and flies off, taking out Anderson with Whisper In The Wind! Jeff then makes the cover, but Anderson kicks out on two-and-a-half, and Hardy continues to try to win the match, even damaging Anderson’s nose with a dropkick in the corner of the ring, but when Jeff goes for the Twist Of Fate, Anderson fights his way out of it and he then lifts Hardy onto the back of his shoulders, immediately nailing Jeff with the Green Bay Plunge! Anderson slowly makes the cover, not able to make it straight away, but miraculously, Hardy kicks out just before the count of three and Anderson is annoyed, as he then climbs to the top rope and goes for the Kenton Bomb, but Hardy moves out of the way, as Anderson crashes and burns on the canvas! The ending to this match comes when both competitors are exhausted and Anderson goes for the Mic Check, but Hardy fights his way out of it, and he nails Anderson with the Twist Of Fate! The crowd go wild and Hardy remains lying on the canvas for a while after connecting with his finishing manoeuvre, gradually climbing to the top rope, but when he does, Desmond Wolfe walks out and distracts Hardy, simply by standing on the stage and smirking at him. Due to the amount of time it took Jeff to get to his feet and climb to the top rope, Mr. Anderson is now barely back on his feet, and he falls onto the ring-ropes, not meaning to, but it proves to be smart as Hardy loses his balance and falls off the top rope down to the canvas! Anderson gets Jeff straight back up and immediately hits Hardy with the Mic Check, making the cover and picking up a huge victory over Hardy!
Mr. Anderson struggles to his feet with assistance from the ropes and he raises both arms in the air, ignoring the referee as he stands himself up in the corner of the ring and motions around his waist that he will become the TNA World Heavyweight Champion this Sunday. Desmond Wolfe makes his way down the ramp and into the ring, standing over Jeff Hardy with a sick smirk on his face and getting on top of his adversary, pummeling him with blows until AJ Styles rushes down the ramp and heads into the ring, going for Desmond Wolfe who immediately leaves the ring and heads to the back, not wanting anything to do with Styles. AJ shakes his head at Wolfe with contempt, but when he turns around, Anderson lays out Styles with the Mic Check! The crowd boo Anderson who kneels over AJ’s body and the camera briefly cuts to the back where Ric Flair is watching the proceedings from his dressing room with a grin on his face, before cutting back to the ring, as Anderson holds his hand up and a microphone reels down from the ceiling, which Anderson grabs. Anderson says to Styles that he won’t have to worry about him after this Sunday, because at Against All Odds, a new TNA World Heavyweight Champion will at long last be crowned and his name will be MIIIISSSSTTEEERRRRR ... AAAAANNDDDEEERRRRSSSOOONNN!!! Not quite satisfied, Anderson sits AJ up and holds him up, repeatedly hitting Styles in the forehead with the microphone without showing a single shred of remorse for the TNA World Heavyweight Champion! Anderson eventually stops, but only because AJ Styles has been busted open by Anderson and when KA sees this he smirks, before once more whispering in AJ’s ear ... “Anderson”...

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
I hate recaps.
Not sure I like the idea of Kaz being in action at all here. While Kaz vs. Homicide is no doubt an exciting match to open the show up with, I was under the impression that Kaz last week said he wanted his big return match to be on Pay-Per-View, thus why he was delaying his match with Joe to Against All Odds. Although now here he comes out, and he faces Homicide in the opener on iMPACT!, which is a far cry from that. Kaz picking up the win was obviously going to happen, although I didn’t think the post-match brawl was necessary. It seems like there’s going to be a lot of that tonight, and this is probably your feud with the least heat. These guys have no real reason to hate each other, so a staredown between the two would have sufficed instead of a beatdown which is better suited for more of a person feud.
While I have no problem with giving Kurt some promo time, this promo seemed kind of random. I mean, where did all of this come from? We had absolutely no signs of Angle being disheartened with his position in TNA before. All we knew was that he was angry with Ric Flair for costing him his title shot, and that he wanted to kick his ass. Suddenly that angry Angle was lost here. Flair interrupting at least kept that stuff going, although the match seemed very random. While it makes Angle look like a badass, I was under the impression that this was just a promo, so I had no idea there was a referee in the ring. It also seems weird that Flair would get Morley to represent him. Flair has it all in storyline, everything anyone could want – heck, just last week he gave Mr. Anderson a limo – but the best guy he could buy to represent him was Morley, who has been a jobber? A bit weak. Weird promo, and to be honest, wasn’t really happy with the booking here, as it just didn’t make sense in context with either of these characters.
See, this is what I meant from the opening segment. These guys actually have a place brawling, as they’ve got heat between them. Daniels competing is interesting, although I was surprised he was happy to compete. I guess you’re going for the attitude that he can beat anyone, which I don’t mind at all.
Good to see you letting Kendrick having a chance to look good by having a good match with Daniels that showcases his abilities. The distraction from Red to hand Kendrick the win is alright, and it allows Kendrick to regain some momentum after being blown off as a nobody in a promo by Joe last week. The aftermath was interesting, but with Kendrick being a heel, it works. Nice to see Daniels really looking strong, and him putting his hands on Don West is a nice way to try to get him that extra heel heat with a vicious side. Fingers crossed he walks out of Against All Odds as X Division Champion, because he’s awesome, and Red, well, sucks.
No Nash/Waltman tonight? Well, I guess that’s your way of getting them on the show, although I’m kind of disappointed. Still, it’s probably better than blowing the street fight already on iMPACT!. Hopefully we do actually see something more of Nash/Waltman by the end of the night, even if it’s just a mention.
Nice to see you trying to make both Lethal Consequences and Generation Me look good by having the two teams appear almost evenly matched. No winners here works for me, as both men come off looking strong, while the Brits get to heel it up with their attack, imposing their will, while Beer Money making the save keeps all four teams involved. As I said in last show’s review, I’m not sure I’m a huge fan of this match, but the way in which it was built with this match tonight was good.
Oooo, the big Monday night debut.
Between the hype for that and Against All Odds, we should have a lot to look forward to in this thread.
Not sure you really needed Beer Money and The British Invasion in action after their involvement earlier. I would have felt that was enough hype on this show for them, and that the tag match earlier and subsequent run ins did pretty much all you could ask for in selling the four way tag match. Still, a good match to give EY some more momentum headed into Against All Odds, which he needs because all things point to him jobbing this Sunday. Should also say, I liked the little Team Canada reference and that you let EY and Roode go at it to begin the match. A nice little touch with the use of their history.
Hogan punishing people for attacks? Isn’t he the one in an unsanctioned match this Sunday? Either way, not sure this promo was entirely necessary, although the announcement of the X Division Open brings something new to your big Monday show. Again, this lifting Daniels’ spirits is weird, but whatever.
Good to see Nash and Waltman did actually get involved in the show, even without being shown, with the attack on Hall. Good little way to hype the eight man unsanctioned match, even without using any of the men on the show in a wrestling capacity, which when you look at four of the guys involved thus far, is probably a good thing. Maybe Hogan should have been worrying less about Daniels and more about his buddy.
Nice main event, keeping the four men in your two major feuds all involved together, and also proving us with some pretty good action. Anderson, being the one challenging for the world title at Against All Odds, of course needed the win, although the distraction from Wolfe both keeps Hardy looking strong, and also makes sure the feud between those two is in the front of our mind. AJ making the save, only to be blindsided by Anderson is a pretty good way to end the show, with Flair being kept involved in this angle too, even if I don’t know if you’ve connected him with Anderson yet, or if you’re going to at all. Still, a pretty good way to end the show.
This seemed like a decent go home show. The main thing I think that needs work is something that you’ve been doing for awhile, and that’s that you have beatdowns to further every feud as we go into the Pay-Per-View. I don’t think it’s necessary, as every angle is different, and by the end of the show, these beatdowns kind of lose their affect if they take place in every second segment. Apart from that, the show was pretty solid, and a good way to go into Against All Odds, which I’m looking forward to.

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
TNA Against All Odds
February 14, 2010, Live from the Impact Zone
Against All Odds begins with a video package, with AJ Styles holding up the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and then lying on the canvas with Mr. Anderson standing over him, as the words “For those who have fought adversity...” appear on the screen in white letters in front of a black background. Then, there is a black and white clip of Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sean Waltman stood together united as one and then Nash and Waltman beating down Hall in the ring, as the words “For those who walk alone...” appear before there are numerous clips of other wrestlers competing tonight, such as Samoa Joe, Robert Roode, Kazarian, Desmond Wolfe, Jeff Hardy and some fast-paced theatrical music plays and there are shots of Wolfe and Hardy fighting, Beer Money and The British Invasion staring each other down, D’Angelo Dinero and Eric Young brawling and Amazing Red jumping off some storage boxes to catch Daniels with a hurricanrana backstage. After talking for a while longer, the narrator finishes by stating “On this night, risks will be taken, careers will be put at stake and everything will be laid on the line, as these warriors must persevere to survive ... Against All Odds”.
Afterwards, the narrator says, “And now, TNA Wrestling Presents ... Against All Odds!” and we then enter the Impact Zone, as fireworks ascend from the stage and pyro balls fall from the ceiling which explode when they hit the ground. The camera pans the audience who are holding up banners and signs of all shapes, sizes and colours, the camera zooming in on signs stating such things as “Watch and learn, Vince”, “Chairman of the Congregation” and “My mind on my beer, my money on my beer – Scott Hall” before cutting to the announce table at ringside where Mike Tenay and Taz are sat. “The Professor” welcomes us to the Pay-Per-View and runs through some of the big matches on the card, with Taz adding comments and also reminding the viewers of other matches scheduled for tonight’s show.
World Tag Team Championships Elimination Tag Team Match
British Invasion Vs. Beer Money Vs. Generation Me Vs. Lethal Consequences
This match begins at a quick pace, which is expected as Jeremy Buck and Jay Lethal start off the match as the legal men. Whilst the tag team division shines with their exchange, so does the X Division, as a lot of high-flying and quick moves are executed by both competitors. Eventually, Robert Roode representing Beer Money and Doug Williams representing the reigning Champions the British Invasion are tagged into the match, and the pace of the match slows down a bit, as the technical ability of both competitors shines through. Roode almost pins Williams and eliminates the Tag Team Champions with a thunderous Spinebuster which shakes the ring canvas to its core, but Brutus Magnus enters the fray and breaks up the pin-fall, provoking the other half of Beer Money, James Storm, to enter the ring and take Magnus out of the ring by throwing the Brit over the top rope and down to the concrete floor! Afterwards, Williams tags Consequences Creed into the match and Creed bombards Roode with quick-paced clotheslines and dropkicks, getting a near fall following a cross body from the top rope, but when Roode recovers he dominates Creed and hits him with the Pay Off, pinning Creed and eliminating Lethal Consequences from the match.
Then, Max Buck enters the ring and Max and Roode go head-to-head, Roode trying to keep the match at a steady pace but he can’t contain Buck, who utilizes his high-flying arsenal and in a display of fantastic teamwork between the two brothers of Generation Me, Max takes Brutus Magnus, who has blind-tagged himself into the match, down with a hurricanrana and straight after Jeremy flies off the top rope and hits Magnus with a 450 Leg Drop! Jeremy makes the cover, but just before the 3 count, Doug Williams saves the day for the Champs, breaking up the pin-fall and subsequently quickly retreating to the ring apron in the corner of the ring. However, Roode knocks Doug off the ring apron after that and Max gets Magnus back up, hitting him with a rolling fireman’s carry slam and then hitting him with a standing moonsault, with Jeremy nailing the Brit with a 450 Splash straight after! Max then covers Brutus, and gets the 3 count, eliminating the British Invasion from the match, and guaranteeing that we will see new TNA World Tag Team Champions crowned here tonight!
It is now down to the young upstarts Generation Me and Beer Money, but only one team can become the new Champions, and James Storm slowly enters the ring, as Storm and Max stare each other down before they begin to trade blows until the larger Storm kicks Buck in the mid-section and plants him with a suplex. Storm, who is relatively fresh, dominates Max and keeps him grounded, locking Buck in a Boston crab until Max is able to make it to the ropes and he then tags his brother Jeremy into the match and Jeremy immediately jumps off the top rope, catching “The Cowboy” with a flying neckbreaker! Jeremy pins Storm but Roode breaks it up, and after Jeremy is attacked by Roode, Storm is able to get to his feet and he takes control of Jeremy, until Roode runs across the ring and knocks Max off the ring apron and Storm lifts up Buck, as Roode and Storm nail Jeremy with the DWI! Storm covers Jeremy and gets the victory, crowning new Tag Team Champions in the form of Beer Money, Inc!
Winners and NEW TNA World Tag Team Champions – Beer Money @ 10:21
The bell rings and “Take A Fall” blares out to a big pop from the crowd as James Storm and Robert Roode have their hands raised by the referee before being handed the TNA World Tag Team Championships for the fourth time since teaming together. They both hold their titles high and raise each other’s hands in the air before Storm gets on the Boozer Cruiser and gets out two bottles of beer, one for him and one which he hands to Roode, and Roode stands on the back of the ‘Cruiser, as the duo make their way up the ramp with their titles. Jeremy Buck soon gets to his feet after being helped up by his brother Max, and they look at Beer Money, as Roode turns around and nods his head at them before they depart.
Backstage in the parking lot, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair is walking through, wearing a slick navy suit and grinning, but then Flair is confronted by security guards, who tell Flair he isn’t allowed in the Arena tonight. Ric is flabbergasted, and he asks why, as the security reply that it is by orders of Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan. Flair is livid, and he tries to get past security but fails, and they tell Ric to leave before they have to call the police, as Flair reluctantly walks away, mumbling under his breath.
Elsewhere, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman are standing around, and Nash is on the phone. It is not known who Kevin is talking to, but whoever it is, he asks him if he can definitely make it, and he replies in a positive manner which must mean that the anonymous person can, and Nash says goodbye, before calling another person and asking the same question, getting the same answer. Kevin puts his phone in his pocket and says to Waltman that it’s nice that they have reliable partners tonight, unlike Scott Hall last month at Genesis.
Kazarian Vs. Samoa Joe
The match starts with Samoa Joe dominating Kazarian, using his superior size to his advantage and immediately forcing Kaz into the corner of the ring, hitting him with right hands until Kazarian is able to duck one and Kaz runs off the ropes, charging towards Joe and taking the big man off his feet with a dropkick! With “The Samoan Submission Machine” down on the canvas, Kazarian takes advantage, stomping away at Joe and running off the ropes before hitting Joe with a leg drop onto Joe’s mid-section. Kaz makes an optimistic cover but Joe kicks out before the count of 2 and after that Joe gets back to his feet and as Kazarian runs at him, Joe lifts him up in a Gorilla press and then drops Kaz down chest-first on the canvas.
After Joe is in control for a few more minutes with Kazarian trying to fight back a few times, Kaz gets back into the match after taking Samoa Joe down with a spinning heel kick and Kazarian gets a near fall after hitting Joe with the Wave Of The Future, but Joe gets the shoulder up just before the 3 count, to the dismay of Kazarian and the majority of the TNA fans. After Kaz gets Joe up and hits him with a few right hands, “The Coolest Man In Wrestling” gets Joe onto the top rope and Kazarian gets Joe in position for the Flux Capacitor, but Joe fights out of it and climbs back down, throwing some punches to Kaz’s mid-section and lifting him off the top rope, before nailing him with the Muscle Buster! Joe then makes the cover, and gets the victory, giving Kazarian his first loss since his return to TNA.
Winner – Samoa Joe @ 7:51
“Nation Of Violence” plays and Samoa Joe gets to his feet as he looks down and stares at Kazarian before shaking his head and leaving the ring without having his hand raised by the referee. The no-nonsense “Samoan Submission Machine” walks up the ramp and leaves, not once looking back to look into the ring or at the TNA fans, who give a mixed reaction in response to Joe’s victory over Kazarian.
Backstage, Desmond Wolfe is walking through the parking lot, his arm linked with a beautiful, yet anonymous, brunette. Wolfe is soon caught up by a huffing and puffing Jeremy Borash who, right off the bat, asks Desmond who his female accomplice is, as Wolfe replies by saying that it is his girlfriend that he has brought along for Valentine’s Day, Chelsea, and she is better than anybody Borash could get. JB is offended but he knows it’s true, and Desmond says that he doesn’t have time for window lickers like him because he has to prepare for his match with another window licker, Jeff Hardy, before giving Borash the two-fingered gesture and walking out of the shot along with Chelsea.
AJ Styles is sat in his locker room, taping up his wrists with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship placed nearby, and Kurt Angle walks in, as he wishes Styles luck in his match and says that it’s a damn shame he can’t have another title match this year, because if he could, he’d come for AJ. “The Phenomenal One” thanks Angle and says that he’ll talk to Eric and Hulk about the whole no title shot situation to try and nullify it, and Kurt thanks Styles but says he can do it himself, before walking out.
X Division Championship
Amazing Red Vs. Daniels
The match begins rather abruptly with Daniels attacking Amazing Red who is coming to the end of his entrance as he poses for the crowd, and an impatient Daniels immediately stomps away at Red once he falls down to the canvas before getting on top of Red and repeatedly hitting him in the face with punches until getting Red to his feet and Irish whipping him against the ropes, ducking down in preparation for a back body drop but Red counters, hitting “The Fallen Angel” with a tornado DDT! Red makes the cover, but Daniels kicks out on 2.
After that, Amazing Red makes the most of his advantage over Daniels, continuing to use high-flying and high-risk moves on his opponent and Red gets another near fall on Daniels after jumping off the top rope and nailing a standing Daniels with a reverse STO which drives the face of the longest-reigning X Division Champion in TNA history directly into the canvas, but Daniels kicks out on 2 and a half. Soon after, Red kicks Daniels in the mid-section and wraps his legs around Daniels’ waist, in position for the Code Red, but “The Fallen Angel” counters and backs into the corner of the ring, with the back of Red’s skull hitting the middle turnbuckle! After that, Red can’t mount a comeback and after trying to get back into the match but failing, Red runs off the ropes but is kicked in the mid-section by Daniels, who subsequently hooks Red’s legs, lifts him up, and nails Red with the Angel’s Wings!
Daniels doesn’t make the cover there, instead walking over to the corner of the ring, jumping to the second rope and then jumping to the top rope before flying off, and connecting with the Best Moonsault Ever! Daniels then makes the cover on Red, and wins the match, becoming X Division Champion for the 4th time in his career!
Winner and NEW X Division Champion – Daniels @ 8:32
“Wings Of A Fallen Angel” plays and Daniels gets to his feet, as he ignores the referee and snatches the X Division Championship out of SoCal Val’s hands, then climbing to the top rope and proudly raising his newly-won title above his head before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp with his belt.
Backstage, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, the Motor City Machine Guns, are standing in front of a big framed picture on the wall, which happens to be the official poster promoting tomorrow’s Monday Night Impact. Then, Scott Hall walks into the shot and he says to them that tomorrow night’s gonna be big before going to walk away, but Sabin tells Hall to stop and he smells Scott’s clothes, presumably searching for the smell of alcohol just in case, before giving him the thumbs up as Hall takes a toothpick out of his pocket and puts it in his mouth, walking away.
D’Angelo Dinero vs. Eric Young
These two men have had three great matches in the past month, one unfortunately ending with a disqualification, and this encounter, with the Global Championship on the line, is no different. In the opening stages of the contest, the former Champion Eric Young is in control of the current Champion who defeated Young to win the gold last month at Genesis, D’Angelo Dinero, after kicking him in the mid-section instead of locking up and forcing “The Pope” to the canvas with clubbing blows to the back. Young, crouching down, wrenches the arm of Dinero, who is lying on his stomach on the canvas, and repeatedly drops his knee onto it, before he gets Dinero to his feet, still holding his twisted arm, and pulls him in, going for a clothesline, but Dinero ducks under Young’s swinging arm and lifts Eric up, planting the leader of the World Elite on the canvas with a back suplex!
After that, Dinero is control of his arch-adversary Young, keeping him down on the canvas for several moments much like Eric did to him less than a minute before with a headlock. Young rolls over, trying to get out of it, but instead of escaping from the headlock, it gives “The Pope” an opening to transition it into an armbar, only for Young to quickly make it to the ropes as Dinero is forced to let go of Eric. Both competitors get back to their feet and Young runs at Dinero, but the Global Champion takes Eric down with an arm drag, and Young is able to get back to his feet rather swiftly, charging towards Dinero again, only for Dinero to take Young down with another arm drag. Dinero then runs off the ropes, but Young takes him down to the canvas with a drop toe hold and quickly gets back up, planting an elbow drop onto the back of Dinero’s neck. Young gets Dinero back to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, subsequently running towards “The Pope” but Dinero ducks out of the way as Young runs into the corner of the ring and Dinero quickly backs away before running across the ring, going for the Dinero Express, but unlike in the past, Young moves out of the way, and Dinero’s knees crash into the turnbuckles!
Young senses an opening after Dinero’s error, and Eric stomps away at Dinero before forcing “The Pope” under the ropes and out of the ring, as Dinero crashes to the concrete floor. Young leaves the ring and gets Dinero back up to his feet, taking Dinero over to the security rail and going to slam Dinero’s face into the rail, but Dinero fights his way out of it, hitting Young with an elbow to the cranium which sends Eric back-pedalling and Dinero then hurls Young shoulder-first into the steel ring-post! Dinero then gets Young back into the ring and makes the cover, but Young gets the shoulder up on two-and-a-half, as Dinero then gets Young to his feet and wrenches his arm, going for the Dinero Experience, but Young counters, kicking Dinero in the mid-section and planting “The Pope” with a DDT!
The ending of this great match comes when Eric Young gets D’Angelo Dinero to his feet and lifts Dinero up for the Piledriver, but Dinero manages to fight his way out of it, landing back on his feet in front of Young and Dinero wrenches Eric’s arm, nailing Young with the Dinero Experience! Dinero quickly makes the cover and wins the match, retaining the Global Championship!
Winner and STILL Global Champion – D’Angelo Dinero @ 10:47
“Catholi-Funk” plays to a big pop from the crowd and D’Angelo Dinero gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and is handed his Global Championship which he raises in the air and then leaves the ring with, leaning back on the security rail and holding the title above his head with both hands as he is bombarded by ecstatic fans. Dinero then walks up the ramp and turns around, raising the belt aloft once more before disappearing the curtain.
Now, there is a video package, hyping tomorrow’s Monday Night Impact. We see clips of the history of TNA, such as the first-ever show, Elix Skipper walking across the cage, AJ Styles falling off the Ultimate X structure down to the canvas and Kurt Angle head-butting Samoa Joe, before studio shots of Hulk Hogan, Jeff Hardy, Mr. Anderson, AJ Styles, Mr. Anderson and Kurt Angle flash across the screen and the Impact logo appears on the screen, before the narrator says “Tomorrow night, wrestling returns ... to Monday nights” and as a graphic showing all of the details about the show appears on the screen, the narrator states “TNA Impact moves to Monday nights, starting at 8PM!”
Desmond Wolfe vs. Jeff Hardy
As soon as the bell rings, these two arch-rivals lock up and try to out-power each other, as Desmond Wolfe wrenches Jeff Hardy’s arm and repeatedly tugs at it, trying to cut off the blood circulation in Hardy’s arm. However, Jeff kicks Wolfe in the mid-section and attempts to go for his patented Twist Of Fate just a few seconds into the first one-on-one meeting between these two competitors, but Wolfe reverses it and then throws Hardy across the ring with a German suplex! Jeff lands awkwardly on his neck and Desmond continues the assault, stomping away at Hardy’s mid-section and then planting a knee drop onto Jeff’s skull, before making the cover, only for Hardy to kick out on 1. Wolfe gets Hardy to his feet and hits Jeff with some right hands before Irish whipping “The Charismatic Enigma” across the ring and into the corner of the squared circle, then running towards Jeff but Hardy retaliates by kicking Wolfe in the face and then taking Desmond down to the canvas with a bulldog!
After that, Hardy is in control for the next two minutes of the match, not necessarily trying to end the match but making strong advances towards it as he doesn’t let Wolfe get in any offence until Jeff lifts Desmond up off his feet and into the air in position for a suplex and Wolfe is able to land on his feet behind Hardy, as he hits Jeff with a Russian leg sweep, with the back of Hardy’s skull literally bouncing off the mat! Wolfe then gets Jeff in a headlock and keeps Hardy grounded for several moments until Jeff is able to fight to his feet after plenty of encouragement from the crowd, and Hardy lifts Wolfe off his feet, hitting the arrogant Brit with an Atomic Drop and then lifting him up for a suplex, only to drop Wolfe face-first on the canvas as Hardy lands in a sit-down position.
Jeff then makes the cover, but Desmond kicks out on the count of 2 and Hardy gets Wolfe to his feet once again, taking Desmond over to the corner of the ring and lifting him up to the top rope before climbing up there. Jeff gets Wolfe in position for a Superplex, but Desmond fights out of it after a few blows to Jeff’s head and mid-section and the two switch positions on the top rope but Hardy pushes Wolfe off the top rope and down to the canvas! Desmond is quick to get back up to his feet, but when he does, Jeff flies off the top rope and takes out Wolfe with the Whisper In The Wind! Hardy then makes the cover, and almost wins the match right there, but a defiant Wolfe kicks out on 2-and-a-half! After both competitors, who are tiring out rather quickly, lie on the canvas for a few moments, Hardy is the first to get back to his feet and he gets Wolfe up, kicking Desmond in the mid-section and going for the Twist Of Fate like he did within the first few seconds of the match, but again Wolfe counters it and gets Jeff in a sleeper hold, keeping Hardy locked in the sleeper for several moments before transitioning it into a full nelson and then lifting Jeff off the ground, hitting Hardy with a thunderous full nelson slam!
The finale of this thrilling match comes when Desmond Wolfe is eagerly anticipating the moment when Jeff Hardy gets back to his feet after Wolfe took him down with a flying forearm. Jeff slowly gets back up and Desmond tilts in between the ropes before charging at Hardy, obviously going for the Jawbreaker Lariat, but Jeff quickly kicks Wolfe in the mid-section, and finally connects with the Twist Of Fate! Hardy quickly climbs to the top rope and flies off, nailing Wolfe with the Swanton Bomb and then making the cover, getting the victory!
Winner – Jeff Hardy @ 11:29
“Modest” blares out to a big pop from the crowd and Jeff Hardy gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and Hardy slowly climbs to the second rope, pointing his “Gunz” fingers to his mouth and nodding his head in response to the standing ovation he is getting from the crowd before doing the same in each corner of the ring and then leaving the squared circle, high-fiving some fans as he makes his way up the ramp and subsequently disappears behind the curtain as a victorious warrior...
Backstage, Hulk Hogan is walking down a corridor, on his way to the ring. As the upcoming match he is competing in is a street fight, Hogan is NOT in the red and yellow, which may upset some but uplift others, as he is instead wearing all-black clothing, ready for an all-out brawl.
Back in the arena, “Motorcity” blares out to a big pop from the crowd and Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, the Motor City Machine Guns, make their way out, both wearing normal clothing but both donning the same ‘Machine Guns t-shirt. Sabin and Shelley make their way down the ramp, gesturing to the camera before entering the ring as both climb to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring and point their finger to their opposite palm signifying their hometown of Detroit, before climbing back down and waiting for their partners.
“Marvellous Me” plays and the crowd cheer as Scott Hall walks out, wearing normal clothes as, let’s face it, he’d look atrocious in his ring gear judging by the shape he’s in anyway. Hall walks down the ramp and slicks his hair back, throwing his toothpick directly at the camera lens before stepping into the ring and greeting both Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin, shaking their hands and waiting alongside the ‘Guns for the final piece of their jigsaw.
“Rockhouse” blares out and the crowd go wild as Hulk Hogan walks out, looking happy with the ovation he is receiving as he breaks out with a number of poses on his way down the ramp. Hogan points to and directs the camera to a sign saying “Hogan >>> Vince” and then enters the ring, greeting Scott Hall and the Motor City Machine Guns as they wait for their opponents to arrive, two which none of them know the identity of, the only ones knowing who they are being the other half of the opposing quartet, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman.
“Strut” plays and Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman both walk out, getting heat from the crowd. Nash looks calm and composed whereas Waltman is fairly exuberant, striding down the ramp in front of Nash and giving crotch chops here, there and everywhere before the duo enter the ring and they stand opposite Hogan, Hall and the ‘Machine Guns as Nash says to them “You’re gonna love who we’ve picked”.
After several moments of silence pass, “My World” blares out and the first of the two mystery partners is revealed to be none other than Jeff Jarrett! The crowd are shocked and they don’t know how to react as Jarrett, guitar in hand, walks down the ramp and briefly pauses to raise his hands and guitar in the air before continuing his walk down the ramp and stepping into the ring, joining Nash and Waltman as he doesn’t take his eyes off Hulk Hogan for one second.
Then, “Chic Chic Bang Bang” plays and Mick Foley walks out, as the fourth and final member of the team! The crowd, shocked before, are even more astonished now, and Foley shouts “Bang Bang!” as he points his fingers out whilst walking down the ramp and he then enters the ring, standing alongside his team-mates and looking at Hogan, Hall and the ‘Machine Guns, not able to take off the sly smirk fixated on his face.
8-Man Tag Team Unsanctioned Street Fight
Jeff Jarrett, Kevin Nash, Mick Foley and Sean Waltman Vs. Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, Hulk Hogan and Scott Hall
The only people in the Impact Zone not shocked at the arrivals of Jeff Jarrett and Mick Foley are their partners, Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman, and their side uses it to their advantage, immediately taking control of this Street Fight as they beat down Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and the Motor City Machine Guns. Soon after, the action is taken outside of the ring, as it is still Nash, Waltman, Foley and Jarrett in control of their opponents. The fighting continues on the outside, and eventually Hogan, Hall and the ‘Guns are able to mount some offence, as Hogan fights Jarrett, Hall fights Foley and Sabin and Shelley fight Nash and Waltman, and the surroundings are used for the first time in the match so far as Hogan hurls Jarrett into the steel ring post! Jeff goes down in a heap and Hulk stomps away at him before getting him up and taking him near the security rail, going to slam his skull into the rail but Jarrett counters, low-blowing Hogan with his foot and slamming Hogan’s cranium against the security rail over and over and over again, relentlessly!
Meanwhile, the fighting between Foley and Hall is rather slow-paced, but it proves to be a catalyst in the progression of this Street Fight, as the two take their brawl up the ramp. Hall gets the upper hand over Foley and he tells somebody to set up a table on the concrete floor below the ramp, as Chris Sabin sets one up near the ramp. Hall subsequently lifts Foley up by his arms, and sends Foley off the ramp and through the table with the Razor’s Edge! The crowd go wild after that and Hall soon makes the cover, but Nash breaks it up and now it’s the two former best friends, Hall and Nash, that are fighting. After “The Silver Fox” takes Scott down with a clothesline, Nash searches under the ring and wields a steel chair, which he holds in his hands as he waits for Hall to get up. Scott slowly gets up, but Alex Shelley is standing on the ramp with a steel chair of his own, and he jumps off the ramp, driving the chair into the back of Nash’s skull which takes “Big Sexy” down! It is effectively 4 versus 2 now, with Foley and Nash down and Hogan, Hall, Sabin and Shelley standing tall, and Sabin runs at Jeff Jarrett who is standing by the security rail, but Jarrett lifts Sabin up with a back body drop and sends him over the security rail and into the crowd!
Eventually, the fight is taken up onto the stage about 8 minutes into this Unsanctioned Street Fight once everybody is on their feet, and the Motor City Machine Guns are fighting Jarrett and Foley whilst Hogan and Hall are fighting Nash and Waltman. Sabin is able to lift Foley up onto his shoulders in position for the Cradle Shock, but Mick fights out of it, kicks Sabin in the mid-section, and plants him with a Double-Arm DDT on the stage! Now Shelley is outnumbered by Foley and Jarrett and as Mick gets up, Alex tries to take advantage as he attacks the “Hardcore Legend”, but it doesn’t last long as Shelley is knee’d in the mid-section by Jarrett, who then hurls Alex into the specially-designed set! Foley disappears backstage for a few moments, but when he re-emerges, he has a whole load of weapons in a cart and he takes a barbed-wire baseball bat out, which he holds as he goes over to Hogan, Hall, Nash and Waltman, and Foley nails Hogan square in the forehead with the Barbed Wire Baseball Bat! Hulk goes down lke a sack of potatoes, and when he looks up, Hogan has been busted open! Foley smiles when he sees the blood pouring from Hulk’s wound and Mick mercilessly stomps away at “The Hulkster” until Hall fights Foley, but when Scott turns around, Jarrett drives the weapons cart into Hall’s mid-section and “The Bad Guy” goes down!
After more carnage takes place and Waltman, Nash, Hall and Foley are all busted open, the climax to this helacious Unsanctioned Street Fight comes when the action has been taken into the parking lot, and as Hogan, Sabin and Shelley fight Nash, Waltman and Jarrett, Scott Hall and Mick Foley are standing on the bonnet of a Hummer, which is parked next to a smaller car, which has thumb-tacks spread all over the bonnet. The two competitors constantly try to throw each other off the Hummer and onto the thumb tack-laden bonnet of the car, but they both fail until Hall grabs Foley by the hair, trying to throw him off. However, Mick fights his way out of it as he kicks Hall in the mid-section, and sends himself and Hall onto the thumbtacks on the bonnet of the car, smashing the front window of the vehicle! There are chants of “Holy Sh*t” in the Arena as Hall and Foley, both pierced by thumb-tacks, lie motionlessly on the car bonnet and both Hall and Foley lay their arms over each other, both making the pin, and the referee makes the count, as this match ends in a draw!
Winners – Draw @ 16:20
The crowd are unhappy that this match ended in a draw and they boo, as the fighting between Hogan, Sabin and Shelley and Nash, Waltman and Jarrett continues, whilst EMT’s and paramedics rush to the scene where Hall and Foley are lying on the car bonnet, checking on them and loading both men onto stretchers. Waltman swings a wild kick at Sabin, but Chris ducks it and lifts Sean up, nailing Waltman with a Cradle Shock on the concrete floor! Afterwards, however, Kevin Nash tucks Sabin’s head in between his legs, picks him up, and drops Sabin with a Jack-Knife Powerbomb! Hogan and Jarrett continue to fight, and Jarrett takes a steel pipe from nearby, swinging it at Hulk, but “The Hulkster” showing immense strength, stops it and kicks Jarrett in the mid-section, taking the steel pipe, and nailing Jarrett in the spine with the steel pipe! It’s now Hogan and Nash who stand tall, but then security guards rush to the scene and restrain both men, preventing them from fighting as Nash smirks at Hogan, whereas “The Hulkster” shakes his head at Nash with a look of contempt.
Backstage, Eric Bischoff is sat in his office, watching the proceedings of the show from a flat-screen TV on the wall with a look of sheer horror on his face. Bischoff sighs and holds his head in his hands, muttering “We’ve gotta’ do something about it”.
Elsewhere, Christy Hemme is standing by, and she introduces her guest, “The Fallen Angel” and the new X Division Champion, Daniels. The new Champ has an irremovable grin on his face and Hemme asks Daniels how it feels to be X Division Champion,as Daniels replies by saying that it’s nothing new, he’s been Champion three times before, but we can all celebrate the fact that the X Division Championship belongs to the face, heart, soul and pioneer of the X Division. Christy then asks Daniels about his thoughts on defending the title in the X Division Open tomorrow night on Monday Night Impact, and “The Fallen Angel” says that he looks forward to it, because beating up one phony tonight was good enough, but beating up a whole lot more tomorrow night will be a lot better. Daniels then walks out of the shot to a mixed reaction from the crowd.
Now, there is a split-screen; on one side, the challenger to the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson is walking down a corridor, wearing a “Wrestling Is Real, People Are Fake” sleeveless shirt, and on the other side, the reigning Champion, “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles is walking down a different corridor, holding the title over his shoulder with his face covered by a red hood on his sleeveless jacket.
TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles vs. Mr. Anderson
The bell rings and AJ Styles is ready to lock up to get this match underway, but Mr. Anderson on the other hand isn’t, and even though the match has started, Anderson reaches up and takes a microphone which reels down from the ceiling, saying to AJ, “Ya’ sure ya’ wanna do this, AJ? ‘Cause being the kind soul that I am, I’d be happy for you to take that TNA World Title, put it in my hands and walk away with your dignity intact, knowing that you did the right” but Anderson is cut off when Styles, not waiting around to listen to his opponent brag, runs at Anderson and takes him down, unloading on the cocky loud-mouth with repeated blows! The crowd go wild and cheer as AJ continues to bombard Anderson with fists, but Anderson makes it to the ropes and the referee instructs Styles to stop, which the TNA World Heavyweight Champion reluctantly does. As the ref lectures Styles, Anderson gets to his feet and attacks AJ, taking Styles down and stomping away at him until AJ is sat in the corner of the ring and Anderson presses his foot against Styles’ throat until he is told to back off by the referee, and Anderson then runs across the ring, going to kick AJ in the skull but “The Phenomenal One” moves out of the way in the nick of time as Anderson misses his target, and Styles then rolls him up out of no-where, but KA kicks out on the count of 2.
After that, both competitors get back to their feet and they lock up, as Anderson gets Styles in a standing headlock and AJ pushes Ken into the ropes. Anderson comes running back and AJ lies down on the canvas as Anderson jumps over and runs off the opposite ropes, but Styles springs back up and nails Anderson with a picture-perfect dropkick! The crowd pop as AJ gets back up and gets Anderson to his feet, hitting KA with a few forearms to the head and attempting to Irish whip him into the ropes but Anderson reverses it, sending Styles into the ropes with an Irish whip of his own and then ducking down, ready for a back body drop, but AJ has other ideas, as he plants Anderson with a DDT! Styles makes the cover, but Anderson gets the shoulder up, and AJ gets Anderson straight back up, getting him in the corner and trying to lift him up onto the top rope but Anderson fights off the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, forcing him backwards and when AJ comes running at Anderson again, Ken damn near takes Styles’ head off with a thunderous clothesline! After that, the pace of the match slows down as Anderson keeps AJ grounded and he wears down Styles, getting AJ to his feet and locking TNA’s first Triple Crown Champion in an abdominal stretch, which Anderson keeps applied for several moments until Styles, after being spurred on by the crowd who chant “Let’s go, AJ!”, fights his way out of it thanks to a few elbows to the cranium of Anderson, and when KA runs at AJ, trying to regain control, Styles leapfrogs over Anderson and then nails Anderson with a Pelé Kick!
AJ Styles then covers Mr. Anderson again for the 3rd time in this high-stake TNA World Heavyweight Championship match so far, but once again Anderson kicks out on 2, and Styles, taking it on the chin, climbs out onto the ring apron, waiting for KA to get to his feet. Anderson slowly gets up, his back turned to Styles, and AJ jumps onto the ropes, springboarding off them and going for a flying forearm, but Anderson sees Styles coming towards him in the corner of his eye, and Anderson manages to catch AJ on the back of his shoulders! With Styles in a very precarious position, Anderson climbs to the top rope with AJ still on his shoulders, and nails Styles with a Green Bay Plunge from the top rope! The crowd give a mixed reaction as Anderson hits the fan-favourite Styles with his finishing manoeuvre, and two competitors, quickly becoming exhausted as a result of this match, lie on the canvas for several moments until Anderson slowly hooks Styles’ leg, and Anderson has one arm raised in the air, ready to win the match, but much to Anderson’s dismay, AJ gets the shoulder up on 2-and-a-half! Styles will not give in, he will not surrender the TNA World Heavyweight Championship he worked so hard to win, and Anderson is shocked, but he has only himself to blame for not making the cover sooner than he did, as both competitors slowly get to their feet and trade right hands with Anderson gaining the upper hand after kicking Styles in the mid-section, and Anderson gets AJ in position for the Mic Check, but Styles fights out of it and takes Anderson off his feet and down to the canvas with an enzuiguri that is heard throughout the entire Impact Zone!
The ending to this great TNA World Heavyweight Championship main event comes when Mr. Anderson reaches down to get AJ Styles to his feet, but once he’s up Styles immediately kicks Anderson in the mid-section and lifts his legs up, holding onto them and hooking his arms, before hitting Anderson with the Styles Clash! The crowd pop and a beleaguered AJ slowly climbs out onto the ring apron, jumping onto the ropes, springboarding off, and connecting with the 450 Splash! Styles slowly hooks Anderson’s legs, making the cover, 1...... ...... 2...... ...... 3!!! AJ Styles has retained the title!!!
Winner and STILL TNA World Heavyweight Champion – AJ Styles @ 18:05
“Get Ready To Fly” plays to a huge pop from the crowd and AJ Styles struggles to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and is handed the TNA World Heavyweight Championship he can still rightfully call his. Styles slowly climbs to the top rope and holds his title aloft in front of all of his fans who continue to cheer him for his spectacular winning effort in that match. Styles slowly climbs down and repeats the process in each corner of the ring to close out the show on a very positive note, as the hero of the wrestling world, in the fans’ eyes at least, stands tall...

I've decided to come back to this TNA thread, I came to the conclusion that it wasn't a good idea to go back to writing WWE and Dubya gave me permission to come back to this one. 3 or 4 shows have been written in advance so I'm on top of things and hopefully I can get back on track. Thanks.

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Niceeeee. I like the style of TNA wrestling over WWE wrestling so nice switch. I took a pretty quick skim through the thread so far, and this looks awesome. The be the booker section looks to be in the shitter compared to when I was booking in the past so I'm glad there are some good readable threads around.
AAO thoughts now...
Beer Money as new champs is pretty cool. I'm not a fan of having the tag champs being eliminated first, as it makes them look kind of weak, but definitely not a bad way to start the show. Flair kicked out of the arena just means that he'll be back later on. Nicely setup.
Joe wins. Nothing really big happened here. Don't know exactly the storylines, but I'm guessing both these men are going to move on from this. Joe deserves better anyways =P Wolfe gets some time here. It's nice how you get everyone some airtime. Good stuff. Some good respect between Styles and Angle. Styles respects the challenge too, which is awesome. I sense a better title reign for Styles in this BTB than in real life.
Daniels cleanly beats Red in what seems to be a pretty short match. Angels Wings followed by the BME might be too much though. Having Daniels as champ is good for the X Division. Red's kinda boring. Scott Hall's got something for Impact. Nice hype for the show. Dinero wins also. Never thought Young would win unless he fluked it off so thats good. "Wrestling returns" just sounds fucking awesome.
After the promo earlier, I thought Wolfe would pick up the win somehow or narrowly lose at the least. Hogan in black > yellow & red anyday. This is a huge street fight. 8 guys is just plain havoc. Something I'd definitely watch though. Controversial draw here. Nicely done. A lot of spots, which I'd expect. This seems a little much for Hogan, but nonetheless, a great ending to a seemingly great match. Expecting some more from this in the upcoming Impacts. Oh...and there's Bischoff right on cue!
Daniels defending title already. Not too worried. I see big things for him rather than being fired. Third time this match that a wrestler's hit one of his finishers followed by a top rope finisher. Might be a little excessive to be honest. Surprised Styles kicked out of the plunge. Glad he's still champ though. Another clean title win/defense. It's a little new to me (all these clean wins), but good stuff nonetheless.
Entertaining recap. I expect full shows to be even better. You got skills kid. Your style of writing is also very enjoyable. I'll definitely be reading. Good job and good luck!

Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution
Listen, mate, I'm not going to lie I haven't followed this thread as much as I would have liked, therefore I'm behind on most things, so I won't be giving you feedback for this PPV. With that being said, I'm going to try and get into things from after the PPV.
I did read the PPV though, and I must say it was a pretty good show. I really enjoyed the main event, as well as the big eight man tag, and I'm loving the fact that there seems to be so many things you can do. By the way, keep Hulk Hogan out of the fucking ring.
Anyway, as I said, I'll be tuning in from the next Nitro, so yeah.
