TNA Impact Wrestling. 10th November 2011
First we recap Roode smashing a bottle over Storm to take his world title from him, with further emphasis on the spit and some epic music just to emphasise the heel turn. Then we are in Georgia for Impact Wrestling. And Robert Roode is first out with his new World Title and music that proclaims him to be off the chain. He says that each and every one of us would have done what he did. He tells us this is a generation of selfishness and he is the leader. Doing things the right way in society today gets you nowhere. In a picture in picture shot we see James Storm at the Gorilla position watching, then getting stopped by security when he tries to come out. THAT’S interesting, I like that. Finally wrestling addresses the question “Why do they only interrupt after letting them speak for ten minutes.” Storm breaks free and makes his way out while security try and keep him from the ring. He decks two of them then hip tosses one right into the camera man. He charges the ring but Roode escapes. It takes D Lo and Al Snow to hold Storm back. While Roode backs up the ramp, Sting makes his presence known. Sting trips over his words but eventually tells us that tonight Storm gets his rematch.
Eric Young and Ronnie from Jersey Shore are wandering backstage, and so is Dixie Carter and the CEO of Bellator Fighting Championship.
Pope D’Angelo Dinero (Where you been?) vs. Crimson
Disappear for ages, face Crimson out of the blue? Sorry Pope. Pope does manage to get in some offence early on with a DDT and a fist drop, then another fist drop from the middle rope. Crimson comes back with knee strikes but Pope sneaks in the 4 Up Uppercut. He goes back up top but when he flies off is caught and Bombed with the Red Sky for the one, two, three. Crimson continues his streak. Hes hardly gunna lose before he faces Morgan now is he?
Gunner is talking about being beaten as a child and relates it to beating Garrett Bischoff.
Gunner (w/Naitch and Bisch) vs. Garrett Bischoff
Ric Flair looks exhausted. Must be the back to back tapings. Garrett may not have entrance music or video, but he sure does have a nice white vest. Gunner trash talks him at the bell. Garrett catches him off guard with an arm drag and pretends he’s shocked he can do it. Another one. And a hip toss and a back body drop. Gunner heads to the outside and takes a break, Flair jumps in the ring and shoves the ref over causing the DQ. Garrett backs up the ramp while one old guy in the crowd starts a Garrett chant.
The Two Robbies are trying to get into Ronnie’s dressing room but a security guard stands in the way. Eric Young opens the door and Robbie E tells Ronnie to save himself the embarrassment tonight.
When we come back from commercial, James Storm is found unconscious slumped in a heap and covered in blood. One really unhelpful stage hand calls for help AND A TOWEL. Storm starts to come around but is clearly worse for ware, stumbling and completely out of it.
Zema Ion vs. Jesse Sorensen
Sorensen with the arm drags and a high cross body to the outside right away. Back in the ring Zima hits an amazing spinning cross body. He looked like Dhalsim flying through the air! He flips Jesse into a backdrop, spins around and sticks a knee in his face. Up top he goes, Jesse rolls away from a 450 Splash then drops him with a modified Cross Rhodes and picks up the win. Kid Kash comes out with a mic after the bell and sarcastically congratulates Jesse calling him “Mr Ten Days in the Business.” Kash tells him hes giving him the opportunity of a lifetime. In his hand is a contract for a match at Turning Point. An X Title match, Jesse vs. Austin Aries VS Kid Kash. Jesse for some reason stalls signing…but does. Kash then makes a your mother joke and Jesse jumps him. This brings out Austin Aries to jump Jesse and they double team away.
Backstage Karen Angle tells Gail Kim she is beautiful and sort of brushes off Madison then berates Traci Brooks.
Knockout Tag Titles
Velvet Sky and Mickie vs. Gail Kim and Madison Rayne
Karen makes sure Madison starts the match. Velvet spears her right away. Mickie James tags in and gets thrown off the top rope by Gail Kim. Gail then tags in and takes over on Mickie. After short domination, Mickie manages a neck breaker and a tag to Sky. Velvet gets her double knees and a running face buster. Madison comes in but Mickie takes her out with a Thesz Press. Velvet then goes for finisher but Karen gets on the apron. Velvet gets the sit out Pedigree on Madison but Gail comes in and gets the dropping boot to the face and the ref comes back in just in time to count the three.
Sting comes in on James Storm who doesn’t know who attacked him. HE insists he’s fine but he falls over. Never a good sign. IM FINE STANNGG!!
The Two Robbies vs. Eric Young and Ronnie
Ronnie starts in there with E. Wrestling wearing a t shirt and jeans. Robbie T tags in, so does Young. Eric Young locks up with the ref, cause that’s still funny to five people. Then he gets away with a bite but falls to a high back body drop. E tags in now that EY is down. He works him briefly then tags Robbie T in. Hanging suplex. He drops EY over his knee and E comes off the ropes with an elbow for the double team. E misses a corner charge and takes a belly to belly. Ronnie gets a tag and clotheslines E then gives him a body slam. And off comes the top. EY goes up top and hit’s a nice flying elbow and…where did his shorts go? While Im preoccupied with that, Ronnie pins Robbie.
Jeff Jarrett is yelling into the camera promising tonight to take out Hardy. Steiner is there too and he’s all like “BASTIDS IM GUNNA KICK ASS YA BASTIDS AND YO MOMMAS AND IM GUNNA TAKE A HARDY AND ANDERSON RIGHT NOW” and he goes for a dump and Bully Ray shouts in “Don’t forget to courtesy flush. You had a lot of eggs today.” This really happened.
In catering, Mexican America comes up on the Ink Inc and a brawl starts. Including the ladies. Ink Inc run them off.
Bjorn Rebney, founder of Bellatore joins the commentary team.
Chris Daniels vs. AJ Styles
AJ is getting good support in his home state. This match is weird, theyre hyping Bellatore on the commentary like crazy and talking about how great it is that the Bellatore fighters fight for glory. Sounds a bit counter productive against TNA to me. Meanwhile in the ring, Daniels drops Styles on the ropes following an attempted springboard. Daniels hit’s a nice split leg moonsault for two then puts Styles in a leg scissor. AJ fights back with his nip up head scissors out of nowhere, but Daniels then rolls him up for two. He goes for angels Wings but Styles counters. Then he gets his beautiful springboard reverse DDT that I could watch forever. Daniels charges but misses and Styles gets some stiff strikes on him. Springboard clothesline and a nip up. Clash called for, Daniels blocks, PELE! Daniels gets his foot on the rope! Daniels goes under the ring but Styles follows him out. He dives off the apron but Daniels catches him with a knee and a slam on the floor. He goes back under the ring and finds his screw driver. He backs up against the ropes and acts like he’d use it but RVD comes out and takes it away. Daniels turns around and Styles catches him in the Clash and that’s a THREE for AJ Styles.
Bully, Steiner, Jarrett vs. Anderson, Hardy and a Surprise
After an ad break between entrances, ABYSS is revealed as the partner of the faces. Immortal are not happy. After a bit of messing about, Steiner and Hardy end up in there. Steiner hip tosses him and shouts WHITE TRASH to Georgia. Hardy gets his back kick and tags in Anderson. Bully gives Anderson a shot from the apron to let Immortal take over on him. Steiner with the clothesline and elbow and the trademark push ups. Anderson manages a clothesline out of nowhere. Hardy tags in and takes out Bully. He gives him a second rope leg drop then goes up for the Swanton. Jarrett crotches him from the outside which allows Steiner to give him a falling slam from the top rope. Bully comes in and gets a two. Jarrett tags in, but when he whips Hardy, he climbs the ropes and hits him with the Whisper in the Wind. Hardy manages a tag to Abyss who drops all of Immortal with clotheslines and boots. Jarrett goes for the Stroke, Abyss shoves him and takes him out with the Shock Treatment! Bully up and clotheslines him outside. Hardy gives Bully the Twist of Fate then straight to the top for a BIG Swanton. Hardy to his feet, but receives a Stroke! Anderson comes in and hit’s the Mic Check on Jarrett, but then Steiner gives HIM a belly to belly. Hes about to put on the Recliner but Abyss comes in and gives him a Black Hole Slam! One, Two, Three! Abyss, Hardy and Anderson win it.
Bobby Roode comes out dressed to wrestle. But obviously Storm wont be competing. They hit his music and his Mickie James style entrance video but he doesn’t show. They hit his music a second time…and he does come out but still bloodied and stumbling. And with less than 5 minutes left in the show, we clearly aren’t getting a proper match. Storm charges the ring, Hebner rings the bell without even checking him…
James Storm vs. Rob Roode
Storm gets a back body drop but it staggers him and he just slumps to the mat. Referee throws up the fake “X” sign to the back and a trainer comes out. MAYBE YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE RANG THE BELL THEN! The ref tells Roode its not happening. Roode tells them to call an ambulance and helps the ref help Storm to his feet. “Match is over right? You rang the bell?” Ref tells him he didn’t ring the bell. Roode rolls him up and makes the referee count. Styles and Kaz sprint out to help Storm and stare at Roode in disbelief.
Sting comes out and goes past Roode on the ramp into the ring. Styles gets on the mic and yells at Roode. AJ challenges him to step in against him. Styles tells Sting he wants Roode at Turning Point! Sting gives it to him as we go off the air.
