It's off to England now after two pretty solid shows in Scotland. The main story coming out of last week is MVP earning a World Title shot by winning the gauntlet match, even though it was more of a group effort from the Beat Down Clan. Other than that we have the continuing story of Bram vs. Magnus, which should pick up again here in England. Let's get to it.


We open with a recap of the gauntlet match with Kurt Angle almost surviving the entire BDC but finally getting caught at the end.

Here's Kurt Angle who doesn't waste any time in calling out Lashley. Kurt says Lashley doesn't have to respect him, but he needs to respect the title. Last week Lashley didn't do anything to help him in the gauntlet match, but Lashley rightly says that wasn't his fight. Therefore tonight, it's MVP vs. Lashley and Angle won't be there to help him. Lashley doesn't want his help because it's his own fight. Angle says he won't help him and leaves.

Lashley is about to do the same but the Beat Down Clan interrupts. Joe says the BDC doesn't need luck because tonight, the Clan's MVP will win the title by any means available. MVP says no one has Lashley's back, so tonight the Clan gets its belt back. This wasn't bad but the Lashley vs. Kurt exchange was kind of lame. Lashley didn't want help so Angle emphasizes that he's not getting help? That came off kind of odd.

The announcers talk about what happened. I really like that they emphasize that Taz used to be a World Champion. A lot of younger fans might not have seen him in the ring (he retired about thirteen years ago) so just throw in that he used to be a big deal. It gives him some credibility instead of just letting him seem like some old guy.

Mr. Anderson/Rockstar Spud vs. Tyrus/Ethan Carter III

Anderson does his intro and Spud gets in a quick intro of his own. Tyrus reluctantly reveals his shaved head and no sells a right hand to the face from Anderson. Mr. hammers away in the corner before it's off to Spud for more of the same. A bite to the head only makes Tyrus mad though and he plants Spud with a World's Strongest Slam. Does that make him a mashed potato? Spud misses an elbow from Carter and makes the hot tag to Anderson, who hits a pretty bad looking neckbreaker for two on the big man.

The fans chant for Spud as Tyrus hits Anderson low and slows things down. Back to Carter for some right hands in the corner. I'm so glad his arm injury hasn't kept him out of the ring for too long. Carter is way too good to be on the sideline that long. Tyrus slams Anderson down but COMPLETELY misses a Vader Bomb (his feet might have hit Anderson's chest if Anderson hadn't moved but that's it), allowing for the tag to Spud. An Underdog (Dudley Dog) drops Tyrus and Anderson adds a low blow and the Mic Check, allowing Spud to get the pin at 7:00.

Rating: C-. This is as entertaining of a feud as there is in wrestling right now. Spud is nailing his underdog roll and Carter has mastered the idea of being an evil heel that you want to see lose. Hopefully that leads to the World Title for Carter, as he's probably the best heel not named Bully Ray in years for TNA.

We recap the formation of the Trio, which led to the Beat Down Clan and helped Lashley beat Eric Young for the World Title. I always enjoy seeing Eric Young in pain.

After a break, Ethan promises to shave Spud's hair tonight.

Here's Taryn Terrell to address Awesome Kong. Kong may have made her intentions clear, so get out here so Taryn can do the same thing. Instead here's Gail Kim to tell Taryn how tough Kong is. If Taryn thinks Havok was tough, think about what Kong did to her. Taryn knows what she wants and is ready for Kong anytime. Kim leaves and the lights go out. Kong is in the ring and shrugs off everything Taryn throws at her before planting her with the Implant Buster. That could be deadly for Terrell.

The BDC throws the camerman out of their meeting.

We look at the BDC helping Lashley win the World Title back in January and then attacking Lashley just two weeks later.

Austin Aries might have a surprise for us tonight and holds up the briefcase.

Chris Melendez/Brooke vs. Robbie E./Angelina Love

I still don't get the appeal of Melendez. Yeah it's impressive that he can get around on one leg, but once you see that it's pretty much the end of his usefulness. He's not bad, but he's a pretty generic power guy other than the leg. Robbie gets in a cheap shot on Chris but gets hammered down and suplexed for two. Off to Brooke vs. Robbie with E. mocking her with Karate Kid crane poses, allowing Love to sneak in with some shots to the back. Some dropkicks send Love over to tag E. but eats a flapjack first. DJZ offers a distraction though, allowing E. to shove Brooke off the top for the pin at 3:26.

Rating: D. Eh it's a comedy feud so it's kind of hard to really complain about this match. If nothing else we get to stare at Brooke and E. is so over the top and insane that it's a lot easier to sit through. As I said though, where was Melendez at the end? He can't handle someone like the BroMans?

Carter tries to go into Spud's locker room to shave his head but Anderson makes the save after a break. Tyrus ran in to help out his boss. Didn't we cover this already?

Gunner wants to know why Angle is leaving but Kurt says Lashley doesn't want him around. That's not enough for Gunner who wants the old Angle back. He slaps Kurt in the face but nothing comes of it.

Here's Austin Aries with something to say. He's thinking about cashing in this Feast or Fired briefcase tonight, but here's Samoa Joe to interrupt. Joe isn't going to allow Aries to cash in the case tonight because he can have trained assassins on him at any given moment. Would those be the ninjas in the panel vans? Aries wants to know where the old Joe has gone and a challenge is thrown out. Joe says bring it so Aries dives through the ropes to take him down.

Austin Aries vs. Samoa Joe

Joined in progress after a break with Aries hammering away in the corner. Joe is too big to have his brain busted though and sends Aries out to the floor. Back in and Joe stomps away before driving a knee into Aries' ribs. This isn't the most interesting stuff so far. They slug it out with Aries getting the better of it, only to eat a running boot to the face and the backsplash for no cover.

We hit the bearhug on Aries for a bit before Aries low bridges him to the floor. A big top rope ax handle nails Joe but the brainbuster still doesn't work. Aries escapes the Muscle Buster and hits some discus forearms to set up the Last Chancery. I'd buy that hold as more of a threat if it ever won anything. Cue Kenny King with the briefcase for a distraction, allowing Joe to put on the Clutch. Aries sends him face first into the case (not a DQ because of course not) and hits a 450 for the pin at 7:55.

Rating: C+. These kind of matches feel like they're just going through the motions more often than not. There's almost no reason for these two to be fighting other than they need something to fill in the card. It's not a bad match or anything, but it just comes and goes and is another match on the show that I won't remember later.

The BDC comes in post match and puts Aries on the table. Low Ki hits the double stomp to Aries' ribs but the table doesn't break all the way. Instead, Joe adds a running backsplash to really send Aries through the wood.

Lashley says MVP has to go through him to win the title.  He doesn't need Angle's help either. WWE, take note on how to keep your monsters short and to the point like this.

MVP praises Eric Young for injuring Roode last week. Young thinks there's a hole in his heart and he has to fill it in with revenge. MVP suggests getting some of that revenge on Lashley for taking his World Title last year.

The BDC has stolen Aries' Feast or Fired briefcase.

Noam Dar vs. Rampage Brown

Both guys are from British Boot Camp but before they can get very far, Bram comes in to beat up both guys with Impaler DDTs at 0:54.

Bram wants Magnus out here right now but he gets Grado instead. Grado dances down and gets in Bram's face, only to get run over with ease. The third implant DDT puts Grado down again but there's no Magnus.

TNA World Title: MVP vs. Bobby Lashley

Lashley is defending and runs him over to start before hitting a running clothesline in the corner. Some more clotheslines set up a delayed vertical suplex as it's all Lashley so far. Again, this is what Reigns should be doing. MVP bails to the floor but the rest of the BDC tries to interfere, earning then ejections as we take a break. Back with MVP sending him into the steps for two and kicking the champ in the back.

More stomping ensues as we get to the core problem with MVP: he isn't the most interesting guy in the ring. Kenny King and Samoa Joe are still at ringside for a stomping as I guess only half of the team was ejected. Back inside and MVP stomps away even more but both guys collide to put them down again. Lashley charges into the corner and plants MVP with a spinebuster for two. MVP tosses him with a suplex but misses the Black Out.

A spear drops MVP but the referee is bumped as well, as per the contractually obligated ref bump in title matches. Cue Eric Young with a chair to Lashley's back but Bobby Roode comes out to break up a piledriver attempt. Young is gone so Lashley hits a powerslam on MVP, but the BDC breaks up the pin again. Cue Gunner to take out Joe, allowing MVP to hit the Play of the Day on Lashley for two. MVP grabs a chair but Drew Galloway takes him down, allowing the spear to retain Lashley's title at 15:45.

Rating: C. The wrestling wasn't great but this was about Lashley fighting off all odds to keep his title. It's a basic story but TNA is pulling it off well enough. They telegraphed the ending with Angle vs. Lashley earlier in the night and I'm sure MVP will get the title one day, but the BDC is starting to look weak without being able to get the big belt. There was too much insanity here for my tastes but I've seen far worse.

Overall Rating: C+. TNA continues its nice roll with another good, although not great show this week. Lashley vs. Angle vs. MVP is an interesting feud but hopefully it doesn't add up to another triple threat match for the title. The rest of the show is actually more entertaining that I was expecting and the midcard is pretty easily more entertaining than WWE's. However, is there a reason these guys are all fighting? A midcard title wouldn't be the worst thing for TNA, but for now it's surviving well enough.

  6. Damn you, TNA.

    Because of family commitments, I can't watch wrestling in primetime (except for the last half-hour or Raw.) I'm no TNA fan...but, if I can sit through an episode of Unlocked, I can watch a replay of tonight's Impact at midnight (pacific time)

    At least, it has been the past few weeks.

    So, tonight, I sit through Unlocked...midnight comes...and instead of a replay of tonight's Impact...I get "TNA's Greatest Matches: Kurt Angle" (and following that is "TNA's Greatest Matches: Kurt Angle Part II").

    I don't want to watch this. (Man, does Kurt looked all cracked out and skinny in this three way match against Sting and Matt Morgan from Hard Justice.) And, just like TNA...the show opens, they do the introductions for the three wrestlers in this match...the bell rings, the match starts...and this pre-recorded, edited, clip show...goes to commercial.

    TO THE NETWORK!

  18. Tangent: I'm watching the "Best of Kurt Angle" TNA special that's airing in the late nite slot on Destination America. They're showing one of the King of the Mountain matches and, fuck me, if this isn't everything I hated about Russo-era TNA. It's six guys, a ladder, a penalty box, multiple pins/submissions, and no fucking clear sense of what the goddamn rules are to actually win the world title. How did this company not collapse on itself?

  22. Yay for more rants!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hah- I remember some fanboy made a threat exactly like that on a forum eons ago- he was threatening people who hated on Sid's then-current run in the WWF. Is that a quote from a promo of his?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sting and Luger were also awesome when Sting turned heel in late 99. Luger finally got Sting to turn to the dark side. Too bad WCW killed it pretty quickly

    ReplyDelete
  25. True story: When Sid did the fist-bumping thing to my friend at a House Show in Red Deer, Alberta, my friend ended up getting a wart on his finger in that EXACT SPOT. It took years to go away- he blamed Sid for this and hated him forever after.

  28. So, historically, any former wrestlers who (in their prime) you think could go toe-to-toe with Lesnar (in his prime) in a shoot and either hold their own or come out on top?

  30. "Ween" Dean AndrewsFebruary 28, 2015 at 5:23 AM

    "that is between him and God now."



    It wasn't God, it was just some kind of evil alien entity that wanted to use their ship to escape from that planet.

    ReplyDelete
  31. "Hoping Nimoy found Christ before he passed - but that is between him and God now." You mean like bought the Passion on Blu Ray? Cause I think it's like $9.95 at Wal-mart.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'd forgotten that. Yeah, Sid's apparent softball obsession was a bit of a weird one. I mean, fair enough if he likes playing it and everything, but it's not like it's something you can make a career out of. He did take a lot of time out to go and play softball though.

  40. Vader stiffed him at Starrcade '93 and Flair handed it back.


    Despite playing a chickenshit heel character, I'm pretty sure Flair wasn't a pussy. He did wrestle for a good three decades after surviving a plane crash + broken back.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I was just thinking something similar about old ladies in wrestling, I was reading something about Hatpin Annies or something like that? Old ladies who used to sit in the front row and jab the heels with hatpins. Wrestling fans will never be that violent again.

  48. I think it's pretty clear that Sid's not a normal dude. Like, not that he's dumb or that there's something wrong with him, but his brain doesn't function the same way yours or mine does.

    ReplyDelete
  49. October 28 - The water is now hot.

    ReplyDelete
  50. That was awesome. You gotta know that a part of Hogan was trying not to laugh during that, especially when she was taking the short-arm swings at him. Imagine if Nash had been on commentary.

    ReplyDelete
  51. That wasn't anti-semitism. The Jews were the chosen people. Many rejected God when they couldn't accept Christ. I had great respect for Nimoy and his heritage. He had a understanding of the One and True God - since he attended the synagogues and Paul said Isreal would one day repent and accept Christ and once again be part of both the orginal and new covenant. I think people misunderstand me as i have great respect for Jewish thinkers in terms of their scholarly understandings of OT writings.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Notwithstanding that, it reads as "Hey, Nimoy was alright! I mean, you know, for a Jew."

    ReplyDelete
  53. How about when Michael Buffer called them the MEGAFORCE?

    ReplyDelete
  54. I checked a YouTube video, he was from Bostonn- I fixed it.

    ReplyDelete
  55. No. It should have been more like I liked and respected Nimoy because he was Jewish and had that knowledge he was able to put in certain movies.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Then I apologize and retract.

    Is Grado just Santino turned up to 11?

  58. Is this the, "But I'm from Chicago, too!" "YOU'RE FROM THE SUBURBS, LEX!" promo? I loved that. Even more than the similar Clash promo where Lex declares that they're too busy preparing for the State Patrol to take on the Roadies.

  59. Terrible in their own way: Scott was boring while Nick made you want to yell "why is your arm flailing?!?!"

  60. The Amazing GamecockFebruary 28, 2015 at 8:43 AM

    Thanks for continuing these, Scott!

    So, WCW and WWE should have never went to 2 hours.

    Perfect amount of wrestling and interviews to keep the viewer invested.

    And dare I say Luger was underrated.

    ReplyDelete
  61. In his book, Gary Hart said that Flair kicked the shit out of all three Freebirds one night. They were drinking and one of them lipped off to Flair. They went out to the parking lot and Flair beat the crap out of all of them and then went back inside and bought them drinks.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Favorite old lady super mark moment for me is the one in the front row at Beach Blast 92 who kept standing up cheering the babyfaces til the middle aged guy grabs her and tells her to sit her old ass down. It happens during the Sting/Cactus match and its hilarious every ti me

    ReplyDelete
  63. And the match bombed so horribly ECW never showed ANY footage of it.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'M SORRY! I'M NOT SORRY!



    I fucking hated that twit.

  65. And even there he was more over than the rest.

    ReplyDelete
  66. "And that’s where he presumably was left to die in Knoxville as the show goes off the air"

    That got me doubled over for some reason.

  67. Green as turtle shit.

  68. I had a great aunt who was in her 70's/80's and a huge wrestling fan. Every time she would come down we would watch wrestling together and she would get super into it yelling at the TV. I also remember, we were watching Nitro and it was shown that Louie Spicolli died. I wondered out loud what happened. She was convinced it was because The Flock beat him up too bad. She hated Raven too.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Sadly Hogan's departure in April 1996 killed Lex Luger's heel persona dead. Giant chokes laming him through a table confirmed it.

  70. Thing is, I think Brody shooting is pure myth. I've seen the match and he just no-sells everything, rather than stiffing.

  72. Probably would have worked better if they didn't turn against Hogan and had everyone cheering the hell out of the pair every time they beat of Hogan.

    ReplyDelete
  73. In straight wrestling, I'd guess Angle, Verne and Billy Robinson. Outside shots for Bad News and Inoki.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Ole was known to be able to get knifed and finish matches. Apparently he could throw a short punch that could crumple people. Also he has no neck.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Why would anyone be "surprised" you respected Leonard Nimoy? the extent of things I expect from you are cringe worthy posts about Christianity.

    Because he was a jew? The thought occurred to no one but you. Because no one here gives a shit about his, your, or anyone else's faith.

    ReplyDelete
  76. It is only because of His grace that I am not already at the judgement seat or in His loving arms in Heaven. I have been called as Christ has called me to serve Him by preaching His word to sinners like me seeking repentance. Repent before the fires of hell claim you. Please.

  77. Mike Atkins, his three counts were like one counts. Why not use HIM when you needed a "fast count?" haha

    The front row old lady (she also got into a Nitro spat with nWo Hogan in 96-97) worked for Smoky Mountain in some capacity. This is from Knoxville so it makes sense. I've seen her on their TV episodes. Ticket lady? Promoter's wife/mother?

    ReplyDelete
  82. My favorite Mark moment was his last episode where he remarked how he was shit on by a bird indoors. Sums his run up perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Lack of continuity in production (or just Taz and Matthews not getting it) ruined the BroMans/Love vs. Melendez/Brooke match. At the start of the match Taz explained the difference between a mixed tag (man vs. woman not allowed) and an intergender tag (man vs. woman allowed), and then even though the match was introduced in the ring as an intergender tag match -- at least that's how DJ Z described it -- Taz and Matthews proceeded to spend the whole time confused as to why the genders were mixing in the ring. Even after the heels won, Matthews was like, "I'm not even sure that was legal."

    ReplyDelete
  84. They say Lex ran because Brody showed razor blades.

    ReplyDelete
  85. "And today a bird shit on me. And I was indoors. So..."

    ReplyDelete
  86. That's because he only has half the brain that you do.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Ole also had the advantage because he hated everybody so he wouldn't hold anything back.


    Flair's definitely a lover, not a fighter.

    ReplyDelete
  88. TNA is probably the best promotion right now at creating an entertaining midcard. EC3/Spud, Bram/Magnus, the Revolution/Hardys/Wolves, Gail/Tarryn/Kong are all great slow burners.

    Where are all the TNA haters when they are having a great run of shows?

  89. Fat, Ugly Inner-City SweathogMarch 1, 2015 at 2:00 PM

    Yep they went from a great pure heel in Ric Flair who is synonymous with NWA/WCW and never missed a beat because Rude was that awesome in the Dangerous Alliance

  92. King Kong Brody = Bruiser Brody because Dick "the Bruiser" wrestled in the AWA.

    Boom Boom Bundy = King Kong Bundy because AWA had to call Bruiser Brody King Kong.
