Re: TNA 2013: Post Hogan Era
TNA IMPACT 10/3/2013
The show opens with Mike Tenay welcoming us to Impact. He says tonight the so called ‘aces in the hole’ of the Aces and Eights, Mark and Jay Sanford will be in action tonight.
As he begins his next sentence, Dixie Carter’s music hits. Tenay looks surprised, he says to Taz ‘This isn’t in the rundown, what’s going on’ There is dead air from the announce booth, as Dixie makes her way into the ring, she asks for a microphone.
Dixie looks angry, and as she asks for a microphone, the ringside attendant is slow to provide her one, and she berates him for not moving quick enough.
Dixie: As you all know, Hulk Hogan is gone from TNA.
She waits for a few moments as the crowd responds. She then takes a pause before saying:
Dixie: AND I SAY GOOD RIDDANCE!
This elicits a negative response from the crowd.
Dixie: Hogan, you thought you were bigger than wrestling; you thought you were bigger than TNA, just like a certain other person, THAT I MADE A STAR! And I think you all know who I am talking about…
As she goes to say the name of AJ Styles, his music hits to a huge pop.
AJ grabs a microphone.
AJ Styles: Dixie, I am not going to sit back there and listen to you say that you made me, you DID NOT make AJ Styles, AJ Styles made AJ Styles.
Dixie: Wah Wah Wah, Allen, all you do is complain, and I’m sick of it.
AJ looks shocked, he cuts her off.
AJ Styles: FINALLY! FINALLY! The real Dixie comes out, Dixie you have brought in supposed ‘solution’ after ‘solution’ and none of them could turn this ship around, when is it time that you realize that IT IS YOU THAT IS THE PROBLEM!
Dixie looks shocked, drops her microphone, walks to the edge of the ring and motions to somebody to cut AJ Styles microphone. Although she is not speaking directly into the microphone, you can hear her say, “I’ve had enough of him, cut it, cut it now, I’m done”.
AJ goes to speak, but his microphone gets cut off, he immediately becomes enraged, screaming profanities at Dixie, which are bleeped.
This pisses off Dixie even more, she walks over and picks her microphone back up and says quickly in a matter of fact type of way “Tonight AJ Styles takes on Bully Ray and Knux in a handicap match, no disqualification”.
AJ becomes livid, he starts walking toward the ring; Dixie calls for security.
Suddenly two masked men walk toward AJ from the back, with shirts on that read ‘Dixie’s Personal Security’.
They try to grab AJ, but he fights back, as he brawls with the first man he counters a full nelson, and hits a Pele kick on the second man coming up behind him.
AJ walks to the back, with Dixie freaking out in the ring.
Back from break, there is dead air for a few moments while a recap airs of what just happened. Mike Tenay comes back:
Mike Tenay: Fans, I apologize for what just happened, we are being directed to not discuss what has just happened, and to carry on with the show as best as possible, as you heard tonight’s main event will be a 2 on 1 handicap match pitting the Phenomenal AJ Styles vs. Bully Ray and Knux of the Aces and Eights, as of this time, this match is still scheduled to happen, we will update you throughout the show, now let us get back to the action.
The Aces and Eights theme hits the speakers before turning into ‘Give Me Back My Bullets’ by Lynyrd Skynyrd mid-way through, and Mark and Jay Sanford walk down to the ring from the crowd, without Bully Ray and Knux. Mike Tenay puts over the Sanfords, saying that despite their affiliation with the Aces and Eights, they are one of the best tag teams today, he puts over their various championships in other ‘wrestling organizations’. He says that the Sanfords very well could be that last piece of the puzzle for total dominance by the Aces and Eights.
The Sanford Boys (Mark and Jay Sanford) vs. Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez
Jay Sanford and Hernandez begin the match in the ring. Jay begins beating Hernandez down violently, cutting the ring in half, tagging Mark in and out, they dominate Hernandez, as he repeatedly attempts to reach Chavo for the hot tag.
Finally as Jay sets up for the J-Driller, Hernandez reverses it into a back body drop, and Jay goes down hard, Hernandez reaches Chavo, and Chavo goes right after Mark on the apron, dropkicking him down to the floor. He goes after Jay, dropkicking him twice, before going to the top rope to attempt a frog splash, as he climbs to the top rope, Jay comes to his feet, and grabs Chavo placing him on his shoulders, suddenly Mark jumps from the apron to the top rope quickly and hits a Springboard-Doomsday Device, Jay quickly pins Chavo, as Mark stops Hernandez from breaking the count. The Sanfords win.
Winners by Pinfall: Mark and Jay Sanford
After the break, a quick replay is shown of the Sanfords winning their debut match, Jeremy Borash is backstage with the Sanfords, and they cut a quick promo:
JAY: We dun came to TNA for one reason, and one reason only, tell ‘em chicken..
MARK: TAG TEAM GOLD
JAY: To all the so called ‘tag teams’ in TNA, it’s time to MAN UP. Hashtag ‘Dem Boys
Manik vs. Kenny King
Mike Tenay reminds us this is the match that was supposed to happen two weeks ago before Chris Sabin interfered and brutally attacked Manik and Kenny King.
Manik dominates the match early on, Chris Sabin comes walking out from the back with a steel chair in hand, with that crazed look in his eye, he walks slowly down to the ring, ad Velvet walks behind him, pleading with him to stop. As he walks toward the ring, Manik notices his presence, he goes to the edge of the ring, and stares Sabin down, as he stares him down, Kenny King attempts a roll up, to which Manik kicks out of, Sabin slowly approaches the ring, getting closer and closer as Manik fights King off, finally Manik dropkicks King out of the ring, and runs off the ropes, and hits a somersault-plancha onto Sabin, causing Sabin to drop the chair.
While King remains down, Sabin and Manik continue to brawl, the referee counts to ten, resulting in a count out. Sabin gains the upper hand during the brawl, and throws Manik into the ring. He grabs the steel chair he brought with him and puts it around Manik’s ankle, attempting to Pillmanize him.
As Sabin goes to the top rope, Petey Williams and Sonjay Dutt, run out of the crowd and knock him from the top rope, and help Manik to his feet.
Dixie’s personal security from earlier come to the ring, and forcibly remove Dutt and Williams.
Sabin leaves the ring with Velvet crying, once again holding his arms above his head, repeatedly screaming HAIL SABIN! HAIL SABIN! HAIL SABIN!
Result: Double Count-out
Austin Aries is backstage with Jeremy Borash, he is asked about his triple threat match tonight with Samoa Joe, and Robert Roode.
He says that while he had something prepared to say about his match tonight, there is certain other thing that is currently on his mind, and it is the mistreatment of one of TNA’s hardest working talents, one of TNA’s originals, he says the way AJ Styles was treated tonight, was a disgrace.
As he says that, Dixie Carter approaches him, with the two masked men from earlier, wearing ‘Dixie’s Personal Security’ t-shirts, she asks him how he is doing, he does not say anything, and puts his head down, she tells him to mind his business and that instead of worrying about AJ, he should be worrying about his match tonight.
Samoa Joe vs. Austin Aries vs. Robert Roode
Roode comes out to the ring accompanied by Daniels and Kazarian. Throughout the match, repeated attempts to interfere by Daniels and Kazarian and thwarted by either Aries or Joe. The match goes back and forth with Joe and Aries teaming up throughout the match.
Toward the end of the match, Aries is thrown into the referee by Roode, knocking him out, immediately Daniels and Kazarian attempt to take advantage, coming into the ring and brawling with Joe and Aries, this causes Sting and Magnus to run down to the ring.
An all-out brawl ensues, Magnus knocks Roode out of the ring, and Joe double-clotheslines Daniels and Kazarian out of the ring, and Aries dives to the outside on all three members of EGO.
Joe walks to the outside and throws Roode back into the ring, Aries gets in to the ring while on the outside, the brawl between Joe and Daniels escalates. In the ring, Aries hits the brain buster and pins Roode for the win.
Joe and Daniels continue fighting back and forth and Daniels finally retreats, as Joe, Aries, Magnus, and Sting stand in the ring, Daniels grabs a microphone:
Daniels: Joseph, Joseph, this is getting out of hand, two weeks in a row we wrestled to a time limit draw, and we could fight all night tonight, but I have a proposal for you Joseph.
At Bound For Glory, hows about you and I have ourselves a 30 minute Iron Man match, to finally prove that I am better than you.
Samoa Joe grabs a microphone:
Samoa Joe: Daniels I enjoyed kicking your ass right now, and I damn sure would enjoy doing it for 30 minutes, you got yourself a match.
Christopher Daniels laughs maniacally as he walks to the back.
Winner by Pinfall: Austin Aries
Back from break, Mike Tenay welcomes us back to impact, he says it is now official, Samoa Joe and Christopher Daniels will square-off in a 30 Minute Iron Man Match, at Bound For Glory.
He says another blockbuster was just announced, Robert Roode, Magnus, and Austin Aries will fight to see who is the number 1 contender for the TNA World Championship, in a triple-threat elimination match at Bound For Glory.
Handicap No DQ Match- Bully Ray & Knux vs. AJ Styles
The Aces and Eights music hits and TNA Champion Bully Ray, and TNA Television Champion Knux, make their way to the ring, accompanied by Brooke. Bully Ray grabs a microphone:
Bully Ray: DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? *Points to Knux* Do you know who he is?
AJ Styles, if you come out here, we will hurt you, do not come out here AJ, you are going to get hurt.
AJ if you think what Dixie has been doing to you is bad; you do not want to know what we are going to do, to you, here, tonight.
AJ Styles music hits, he walks down to the ring, slowly, and methodically.
As he enters the ring, he is immediately ambushed by Bully Ray and Knux, who beat him down.
With AJ down, they begin to taunt the crowd, Bully sends Knux to grab a table.
With Bully and Knux setting up the table, AJ gets to his feet, fighting back against both Bully and Knux.
He gets Knux down, and starts brawling with Bully Ray.
Suddenly Dixie Carter makes her way to the ring, with her masked security guards, she tells them to attack AJ.
They enter the ring, and AJ fights them both off, as he fights them off, Bully Ray and Knux get back to their feet, and gang up on AJ, the four men begin beat down on AJ, and Bully Ray makes the pin.
Winners by Pinfall: Bully Ray and Knux
After the bell, the four men continue the assault. As AJ is down, Dixie enters the ring, she orders the security to pick up AJ, and they hold him as she goes to slap him in the face.
Jeff Jarrett’s music hits.
Jeff Jarrett runs down to the ring with a microphone in hand, and Bully Ray, Knux, and Dixie’s personal security scramble out of the ring, dropping AJ where he was, leaving just Jarrett, Dixie, and a fallen AJ Styles in the ring. Jarrett helps AJ to his feet, and begins to talk:
Jeff Jarrett: Dixie, I am sick of this. For too long I have sat, in the back and watches as the company I built, has been run in to the ground. For too long, I have kept my mouth shut, but now I don’t have to.
Dixie looks confused; she can be seen asking what he is talking about.
Jeff Jarrett: Dixie, you were so quick to get rid of Hogan, that you forgot about a certain clause in his contract.
You forgot that in his contract he was issued a certain amount of stake in TNA, 50% to be exact…
A state of shock visibly comes over Dixie as she seems to know what Jarrett is about to say.
Jeff Jarrett: Well Dixie, Hogan did something with that stake, you see he and I made a deal, he and I made a deal, and now I, I Jeff Jarrett, FOUNDER OF TNA, have regained 50% control of this company, and I will not stand by as you try to take out my guy, TNA’s guy, AJ Styles.
Dixie, choke on that, slapnuts!
Dixie looks pissed, and she storms out of the ring, as Jarrett helps AJ to his feet, and they shake hands in the middle of the ring as Impact comes to a close.
Mike Tenay: MY GOD!! JEFF JARRETT! JEFF JARRETT IS HERE, JEFF JARRETT IS HERE TO SAVE TNA!
