Perfect Impact Reporting from Lockdown 2009

So we just finished watching Lockdown Live in Philly.

Off the top off my head I can say that the Team 3D match was almost like watching old ECW Dudlet Boys matches. I didn't get fire....but that mattered very little. The match was a brawl but great for getting the crowd into it....

The X-Division match was pretty cool....the IWGP JR Tag Title match was impressive....and Foley winning the title was pretty cool. Especially when Team 3D came out to congratulate him....I'm standing about 30 feet from Team 3D right now.

All in all it was a better than Wrestlemania.

More from the rest of the group later....

Perfect Impact Predictions for Lockdown

Ok, Rich Colin and Diabolik are all at Lockdown Live in Philly. And now Diabolik has caught up with all of the TNA Impacts he was behind on so we are going to call out predictions for the show.

IWGP Junior Tag Titles:
Colin: LAX
Rich: No Limit
Diabolik: Motorcity Machine Guns

Knockout Title:
Colin: Awesome Kong
Rich: Awesome Kong
Diabolik: Who the fuck cares?

X-Division Title:
Colin: Suicide
Rich: Suicide
Diabolik: Suicide

TNA / IWGP Tag Team Titles:
Colin: Team 3D
Rich: Team 3D
Diabolik: I want 3D but I think Beer Money Inc

Lethal Lockdown:
Colin: Team Jarrett
Rich: Main Event Mafia
Diabolik: Main Event Mafia


World Heavyweight Title:
Colin: Foley
Rich: Foley
Diabolik: I want Foley but I think Sting

We'll see what happens...

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up T-Minus 1 Hour!

Watching the Impact that aired on Thursday....

Spike Dudley and Balls Mahoney are at the Impact Zone....Why?!?!?!? They showed up to wish Team 3D luck at Lockdown....they had an indy show in the area....

Foley interviewing Cactus Jack is fucking amazing.....Cactus is pissed off at Foley for being lazy....Sting comes out....Sting wants to know if this is an act....MEM music hits and Foley attacks Sting....and he starts asking for random entrance music....

Spike and Balls are attacked by Beer Money.....Team 3D comes in after Balls and Spike are busted open.....they call out Beer Money....they are calling for a Philly Street Fight.....

Angle is out for the main event against a mystery opponent who is.....CHRISTOPHER DANIELS!!! And Daniels beats Angle....but Angle wants a different decision because his shoulder was up....and Jarrett does...

Next up is Lockdown....and my predictions....I DID IT!

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up T-Minus 4:30

Part 2 from March 26....

Foley 'thought' he was protecting the life of Jarrett when he saw Sting with the guitar...lol....does this mean Foley is not doing Hardcore History anymore? :-(

So the Lethal Lockdown Captain's Gauntlet match results in Angle and Samoa Joe being captains and Joe's team wins the advantage.....so I was right that it was going to be Frontline vs MEM....

Don West is such a fucking MEM mark.....

3 more episodes left with 4.5 hours before Lockdown....

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up T-Minus 4:50

March 26 Impact.....

Best start ever....announcing that the title is on the line for Sting vs Foley.....not that I think Foley will win....just having it on the line is amazing....

Then announcing the Lethal Lockdown match being With the team captains being determined by a cage gauntlet match.....interesting.....though I'm 90% sure it will end up with The Frontline vs The Main Event Mafia.....especially since a large majority of the MEM is in the gauntlet......and why is Angle calling everyone jabronis? So it's going to be Angle and Jarrett as the captains since Jarrett is going to be in the match.....

Why is that Survivor winner in TNA? I still haven't gotten an answer....

You know people were chanting Fallen Angel for Suicide at Destination X.....I wonder....maybe I was wrong about it being Kaz? The match with Kiyoshi was really good....

The video package for Lockdown is amazing and showcases the talents of the TNA production team....

A little Tazz reference from Team 3D.....

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up T-Minus 5:40

My phone's email has a character limit....I didn't realize I typed that much.....Still on March 19

Samoa Joe has Bashir hanging from his feet and tells him to go back to where he comes from....HE'S FROM AMERICA....WHY DON'T PEOPLE GET THAT???? Joe beats on him with a Kendo Stick....

Gee a ref bump in the main event.....Foley chair shots Sting for the pin....I think Sting got hit harder than I thought since he thinks he got hit in the back of the head....Sting challenges Mick at Lockdown....for the title maybe???? Foley gives the best promos......Getting a little mankind on us there.....I can only hope it's for the title.....That would be great.....

Well 8 hours/4 episodes left to watch in 5 hours and 40 minutes.....

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up T-Minus 6 hours

I was asked to have breakfast with Danae and Keith so i lost another hour....I will get this done....March 19 on deck.....

So we get Angle and Sting vs Jarrett and Foley.....ok.....

The Motorcity Machine Guns are the IWGP Junior champs....interesting.....the match between MMG and No Limit was really good.....

Beer Money Inc vs Team 3D for the TNA and the IWGP tag tean titles at lockdown....even more interesting.....

Angle is retardedly paranoid....it is a good angle....

Is there a good reason for why Samoa Joe is facing Bashir? Not that I mind him beating on Bashir...just doesn't make sense.....

Why do the Beautiful People get so much airtime?

At least they addressed the fact that the Legends Title was fake but Booker allowed it to be defended and lost....Booker is still unintelligible...and Styles points that out.....

Why is Don West a Main Event Mafia mark?

Why is she still called the Governer? Why do I care?

Part 2 coming since my phone email has a character limit.....

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up T-Minus 8 Hours

Just finished watching Destination X.....

Styles wins the Legends Title from Booker.....

Ultimate X match was great as it should be....with Suicide winning the title....

Angle vs Sting was ok. A little clusterfuckey, but a decent match. Of course Angle blames Jarrett and Foley for losing....

Samoa Joe limping away saying he scarred Steiner was actually ominous.

On to the next Impact....

Diabolik's TNA Wrestling Catch-Up Turning Point 2008

Yeah so the PPV starts out with the cut down version of the montage recapping the Respect issues....the MEM come out of a limo and everyone walks past JB...except Steiner who decides to talk...dear god...at least he is 85% understandable....

So there is a X-Division ranking match....I just wonder if they are actually going to stick with it and use the rankings rather than just give shots to whomever might want a shot....I always thought that was the best approach...give someone a shot at a title, if they lose they move to the bottom....if they win the former champ gets a rematch and then the loser of that moves to the bottom....now the irony is that the Motor City Machine Guns are not in the match because they have a Tag Team Title Shot....but they really should be unless they are not doing singles stuff anymore...I love the fact that Eric Young beat Jay Lethal to take the top spot in the X-Division and get a title shot...he really showcased a lot of ability in this match...not a bad promo from Eric Young....when he is serious it can be intense...though I like him more jovial....

It's funny that they would have the Motor City Machine Guns disrespect Mick Foley by telling him they don't care about his accomplishments....are we getting another factions splitting from the New Blood...I mean TNA Originals?

So the end result of this whole rigamaroll is that The Main Event Mafia won every match...shocker.....

Whatever...silliness....there you go....

Diabolik's TNA Wrestling Catch-Up

So I am not going to go point for point...it takes too long and I am trying to catch up, not slow myself down....and ironically there wouldn't be much to write about....

October 30, 2008

So Joe and Styles call for people to side with them....a group of people come down....MEM calls out for a war....and they have their own music like i thought they would after a week....they allude to the fact that there may be a 5th member to their NWO club....and it turns out to be Scott Steiner....

November 6 2008

The are calling Steiner the Hit Man for the MEM.....I so want Brett to come out and destroy him.....Steiner and Nash "Too Sweet" in the ring....Christ Steiner still can't cut a damn promo to save his life....Why are people cheering him when he is talking????He talks about curtain jerkers...but he is currently the curtain jerker since there was no one on the show yet....retard....Joe finally comes out and tells him that if they had been able to understand Steiner that they might have been offended....Joe lists the innovative things that TNA has done....he calls out the newest recruit to the war...Christian (which is ironic since I know that he is in WWE now)....I love (or hate) how Booker drops in and out of the damn accent....

I like the little montage talking about the MEM vs Originals....though it seems as if that was shot and should have aired before the announcement of MEM so it could allow for some foreboding on the situation...

Why does Angle need to keep threatening Jarrett's family? It is silly....attack his pride...not his family....

A TNA video with Disturbed....did I know there was a Disturbed album? I think I have it as the song sounds familiar....have to check the mp3 player....all I have to say is that TNA's post production ability is really good....

Despite my previous bitching about the creation of MEM I must say that despite the win in the 6 man tag match, they put the young guys over really well....which is what good heels do....so despite the fact I don't like the idea of another NWO, I think if they are willing to put the young guys over we will see some good wrestling...

Of course I wrote all of that before Samoa Joe and Scott Steiner got in the ring and I want to shove pencils in my eyes...wow if that wasn't an NWO clusterfuck finish, I don't know what is....

Well it is almost 4am here so I am going to post this and start back up with Turning Point tomorrow probably...I think there are 28 shows left to warch, not including this weeks Impact....So much wrestling....

Diabolik's (and Rich's) TNA Catch-Up for October 23, 2008

Diabolik: Well, in my normal vein of trying to catch up on TNA Wrestling (if you hadn't noticed by the deluge of posts on both Perfect Impact and on Diabolik's Total Nonsense and Ridiculousness) I was surprised by Rich showing up at my home this morning to hang out. So we decided to let Rich in on the things he has been missing and do a little back and forth blogging about the October 23, 2008 show.

So how goes it Rich?

Richard: It's goin...been a while since I've actually watching any TNA programing, and I'm interested to see what I've missed. Work, life in general and a great deal of other things have kept me away. But with the new Lockdown coming up, and the fact that we'll be there for it, I'm kinda hyped! Looks like we're ready to go here, we've got the first TNA in HD set up in front of us, and it looks like it might be a big one. It's in Las Vegas, and although it happened a while ago, looks like it may have been shot and shown live, so that's cool. Haven't had one of those since the two hour special, or so I've just been told. I'm also a sucker for HD, so I'll be looking forward to catching that on my TV after the catch-up, and of course if I have Spike HD on my FiOS box. Guess now all that's left is to hit play!


Diabolik: The Beautiful People...Wooo....can I sound more apathetic?
I'm sure they were the center of attention in Las Vegas....they look kind of like hookers....

Richard: Didn't know Kip was involved with this...even though I read his name in the catch-up. Wow, what's up with that? Yeah...they do kinda look like that.

Diabolik: Oh...so you just didn't get that Mr. Ass was a part of The Beautiful People now?
Yeah
Hoooray for that!
Sarcasm!

Richard: Is there a story that makes this any less weird?

Diabolik: No....but now they are using paper bags with Kip's face on them......on women.....
So Velvet Sky vs Christie Hemme.....

Richard: (sighs)
Diabolik: exactly.....

Diabolik: So Angle apparently called JB at Midnight the morning of the show and told him that he was going to one up Foley's announcement and that his announcement is going to change the face of wrestling as we know it.....go figure
Christie wins with the Flying Firecrotch Guillotine....
(sigh)

Richard: I am confused at the name of .... oh....that's.....wow

Diabolik: We were considering talking more about Christie's win...but I decided I didn't care....

Richard: One might thought they would have had a regular X-Division match to kick this HD episode off...you know, some eye-popping, high flying action...but you know...that's just me.

Diabolik: Well, Flying Firecrotches in HD wasn't enough of an eye catching event?
JB is sitting down with Angle and he says that he made some calls to important people

Richard: Lol, if those eyes want to catch vd maybe...

Diabolik: LOL

Richard: What's Booker's problem? He needs speech therapy.

Diabolik: Booker is in the same room as JB and Angle.....and he says he is from Africa......and yet also from Houston Texas.....
Nash is there too......at least I can understand Nash.....Booker keeps repeating RESPECT in his retarded accent....

Richard: Apparently, Nash doesn't get any....respect...sorry had to d it

Diabolik: Yay! We are getting another New Blood angle.....like we did in WCW.....which worked so well then.....

Richard: I don't remember the outcome, what happened that time?

Diabolik: Hmmm...let's see....Eric Bischoff tried to ban together all of the newer talent against the veterans to take over control of the company to shape it in a new way....but it was all new guys vs established guys.....

Richard: So, i'm assuming people didn't like that...

Diabolik: I didn't like that and I don't think that it was very well taken by the fans....this is also a little before they went out of business.....

Richard: RESSSSPPEEEEEEEEEECCCCCT!

Diabolik: So a faction of Booker, Angle, Nash and Sting?????
Damn it....
Are they going to be Team RESPECT?

Richard: ...I see, not a way to take things now....
God I hope not

Diabolik: THE MAIN EVENT MAFIA?!?!?!?!?!?!?
WHAT THE GOD DAMN FUCK?!?!?!!?
Dear God....
I quit

Richard: Wait, I heard Colin talking about that...he was all weird about it and didn't want to tell me things...

Diabolik: Yeah someone else pointed out the MEM angle but they wouldn't tell me anything else because I didn't want to know.....

Diabolik: Why does our African friend still come out to the Harlem Heat esque music and not some African themed music?

Richard: Don't know..why is he still from Houston?..and...Really, the pinky is back?

Diabolik: What the fuck is he saying? I can barely understand him

Richard: Dunno..."no more accents" just got chanted

Diabolik: What the hell....a new belt was in the suitcase?
The TNA Legends Championship.....
So is this like the FTW World Championship?
Ah thank you Christian for coming down and interrupting him....

Richard: "Double C!!!" ... and that belt looks kinda cool, but I would say have it a bit darker red...

Diabolik: or not exist at all

Richard: Indeed.

Diabolik: So we already have NWO esque invites to the Main Event Mafia to Christian......
who isn't interested.....
and Christian wants Booker to put up the Legends Title at Turning Point.....

Richard: ...it looks like Booker likes this too...

Diabolik: yeah sure....of course he does because for whatever reason having Christian....who doesn't want to join the group.....join the group makes them better.....like he wouldn't try to fuck it up from the inside anyway.....

Diabolik: Lauren is talking to Matt Morgan and Abyss about the Tag Team Text match (which when she first said it I was trying to figure out if you won by texting faster than the other people)

Richard: lol...It's good to see Double J back on the show, well, for me not having seen this is so long anyway.

Diabolik: JB is up with Jeff Jarrett talking about how Jarrett won't wrestle Angle again....

Richard: The Middle Eastern Nightmare, or "Divari", looks pretty jacked

Diabolik: X-Division title match with Bashir vs Jay Lethal.....
He does.....

Richard: Are you F'ing serious!!! That short?

Diabolik: ?????
Did I just blink and miss that match?
Lethal misses a fucking elbow off the top rope, Bashir comes over and DDTs him and that is the match?
there was like 4 wrestling moves.....
damn it.....it was for a damn title

Richard: I'm calling somebody was hurt before this match.

Diabolik: Let's see.....(rewinding the recording)

Diabolik: I don't see it.....could be...I just don't see it......(still reviewing the tape)

Diabolik: That whole match from bell to bell was 1:50.....
slowly becoming WWE.....

Richard: If that was planned, I just don't see how that highlights one of, if not THE best part of TNA.

Diabolik: Unless they were running long.....

Richard: It's the X division that got me into TNA in the first plac

Diabolik: i know....
but if they were running long why cut the best part of the company? Cut the interviews.....

Richard: Agreed.

Diabolik: Lauren talks with AJ Styles and Samoa Joe about the MEM (God I will hate writing that) and how that will affect the match of Styles/Joe vs Booker/Nash.....

Diabolik: Joe goes off about how he is going to hurt any of the MEM if they get in his way.....

Diabolik: So Rhino is all up in Bashir's face.....accepts his challenge and says he will deport him.....when did Rhino become an INS agent (that and the fact that he is a legal US citizen)
Richard: Isn't anyplace, also anywhere Rhino?

Diabolik: Bashir kicks him in the balls and beats on him.....

Diabolik: So the Hardcore Tag Team Gauntlet Match is next.....Beer Money Inc and Team 3D start it off......they are telling people to text in with what weapon should be legal in this match.....Ladder, Table or Chairs......IN A FUCKING HARDCORE MATCH

Richard: Can I text to have you guys stop doing his?

Diabolik: I wish.....if only we had watched this 6 months ago.....

Richard: Indeed.

Diabolik: Oh, So it was actually Roode and Brother Ray that started out and the next person in was James Storm.....
I missed the fact that it was a singles elimination match that will turn into a tag team match some how.....
Next in is D-Von......
Next in is Hernandez...

Richard: "Super Mex?"
Well, he is pretty ridiculous...

Diabolik: They have been calling him that because he jumps over the top rope every match.....
Next in is Homicide

Richard: ahhh, gotcha. Gotta tell you though, we're what, halfway in and now FINALLY seeing some good stuff?
matt morgan looks like he bathed himself in oil

Diabolik: He did.
Morgan comes down and eliminates Homicide and D-Von and Hernandez....
Morgan gets eliminated because he was trying to tell Abyss not to come to the ring.....
Tables are legal in a hardcore match.....
Yay!
shocker

Richard: Of course they are... and of course 3D likes this

Diabolik: Will I get a flaming table?!?!?

Richard: In HD?

Diabolik: Charcoal lighter fluid
ECDub chants

Richard: It's going on!
Diabolik: Team 3D left their lighter at home.... and lighters flying into the ring
This time they are letting the lighter fluid evaporate
So Abyss gets eliminated.....
I am so confused as to the rules for this match
and now it is Beer Money and 3D
and a We Want Fire chant
oh, what a waste of lighter fluid
they broke the table without lighting it
Beer Money Inc wins

Richard: No revenge for Abyss...I'm sad...and it looks like no fire...and a cheap end.

Richard: Does Kurt's entrance video tag him as the "Greatest Wrestler in the World"?

Diabolik: That is totally not true that the Angle from the previous week was unlike any we had ever seen......we saw him flip out in the WWE
and yes it does.....they tagged him that when he debuted

Richard: I suppose it would have been true...in 1996...Don't get me wrong, i like the dude, but, um...yeah

Diabolik: yeah well.....what can I say.....
Angle says once again that he is going to go to Jarrett's house to talk to his kids......
Jarrett shows up and says that they have the finest talent in the world and he has no business being in the ring......
which could be true.....

Richard: He names all the talent that should matter as well, if something goes down, Double J could be the one vet that stands with the "Young Guys" or whatever they may wind up being called.

Diabolik: Abyss is standing in the ring behind Angle....they go at it....Blackhole Slam attempt and Angle gets out....

Richard is offline. Messages you send will be delivered when Richard comes online.

So Rich had to leave before we could finish watching the show. So now you get just the Diabolik rant.....

Kong and Saieed are in the back bitching at Lauren...they are sick and tired of taylor Wilde....I still think this is a different person behind the veil....very americanish accent on the accent....too much emphasis on the rolling r's....

JB is with Taylor Wilde....I hate her hair....Taylor says that Kong has to end her career in order to take the title from her....Ooooooooooo....

Kong is on the way to the ring....Whoopee!...Cut to a commercial and then Taylor

Wilde comes out....Whoopee!....Yeah I am so totally stoked for this match....A chant for Lets go Taylow Lets go Kong.....interesting...the crowd is really into this....Kong wins the title with an Awesome Bomb....


...Dear god...more Main Event Mafia....Sting and Nash come to the ring for the Main Event....they come out to Sting's music.....Samoa Joe comes down....Then AJ Styles....I wonder how Nash feels about needing to enter with Sting's music....at least the MEM doesn't have entrance music yet....I give it a week....

AJ squares off against Nash which is a great juxtaposition of sizes....Nash ends up smashing Joe with the Title belt and pins him for the win...and then they play his music....I guess it didn't matter that he didn't have his music while coming down....Aj starts fighting off both Nash and Sting and then Jow stands up and puts Nash in a choke....Booker comes down and hits Style with the Legends belt....

We get Foley after that....

Foley is talking about how he made a lot of money and Jarrett told him he should make an investment....then the MEM comes out to interrupt....Ironically they had just been out....Angle starts talking shit to Foley....about Foley saying Kurt was shit....Angle headbutts Foley....Now Foley is a major shareholder in TNA....Ooooo....cause I didn't see that coming....though I thought they were going to make him a commissioner for the gimmick.....Foley tries to imitate Vinny Mac in the "You're Fired" voice by telling Angle that he is fried etc.....Foley wants to know if Angle wants to be a part of history or be history.....

So yeah....I'm not sure if Foley's Announcement really "crossed the line" or not.....but whatever...he is a part of TNA now and we will see what that brings....


So wow....a TNA Live event on tv and that is what we got? An NWO esque respect posse? A new title, because we never see enough fucking titles on a show....and no fire....I think Mick wept a little from seeing all that lighter fluid go to waste....

I have no idea how many more shows I have to get through before April 19.....and our apologies for Rich not being able to ramble back and forth with me....something about him needing to pick up his wife from work....

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up: October 16, 2008

So fresh off Bound For Glory we find out that we are going t have Mick Foley's farewell address. We also find out that Kurt Angle is on a rampage because Jarrett has said that there will be no rematch and Kurt is going to put the blood of every member of TNA's roster on Jarrett's hands. Wow like that has never happened.....

We also find out that Kevin Nash is getting back in the ring in this episode and he is fighting Consequences Creed... ... ... WHY IS HE FIGHTING CREED?!?!?!? There is no reason for it....other than a big man vs a little man.....Nash also explains why he attacked Joe....Because Joe disrespected him and Scott Hall so many months ago...at last that is brought back up and addressed....

Sting comes down and tells Joe that the only reason Sting won the match was because Joe needed to disrespect Sting and took it too far...AJ Styles comes down to confront Sting about the situation and ends up slapping Sting twice and a brawl breaks out.

Angle is beating people up in the back again....

So Angle beat up The Rock N Rave Infucktion and Christie is trying to head out to see them at the hospital when The Beautiful People find her and berate her and then beat her up and they Brown Paper Bag her with a bag hosting Kip's face on it. WHY?!?!?!? What a waste of time....

Angle comes down to the ring and attacks the ring announcer until Jarrett shows up...Angle demands a rematch....Jeff says he has business to attend to...Kurt threatens to go to Jarrett's house to visit his kids....

Foley comes down to the ring for his farewell address...he talks about how he is a junkie...a roller coaster junkie....he also cheap pops Orlando by referencing the Hulk Coaster in Universal Studios.....he says goodbye to the fans and heads up the ramp only to have Jarrett come out and ask him to join him in Jarrett's office so that he doesn't leave like this....

Cornette calls in and announces Matt Morgan vs Kurt Angle to teach Angle a lesson for fucking with the backstage....

Raisha Saeed vs Roxxi....Roxxi wins....Yeo...that exciting....

Matt Morgan talks to Lauren....

Christie Hemme wants to fight The Beautiful People in Las Vegas the following week (a Live show? and the first HD show)

Why are wrestling shows trying to go to HD? So we can see the steroid pimples or so I can see the muscle tear when a hamstring rips?

JB talks with Consequences about his match with Nash....

Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling... ... ... ... I'm gonna leave it at that...

Nash vs Creed....what a shock...Nash didn't job to Creed....Nash grabs the mic and talks about Joe running his mouth about Scott Hall 10 fucking months ago...he then insults the crowd....what is funny is that he is really trying to get heel heat and it isn't really working...people aren't reacting a whole hell of a lot....

JB finds Jarrett and Foley and they are not talking about what they were just talking about....

Lauren talks with 3D.....we find out that there will be a match between the Monster's Ball participants where the fans pick the order of arrival.....

Angle vs Matt Morgan....Angle wins....decent match....Angle keeps working over Morgan...Abyss comes down and Angle jumps him.....They cut away from Angle in the ring with Abyss in an ankle lock to go catch up with Foley and Jarrett....Foley says they are heading to Las Vegas and that he has a major announcement....what a lame way to make people want to tune in next week.....

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up: Bound For Glory 2008

While procrastinating from doing some homework I wanted to get some TNA out of my way since I haven't watched any in a few days. Or 1 day. I'm not sure I remember.

So Bound For Glory opens with a cool Old Chicago styled ganster motif where they talk about the main event matches. Then they have the X-Division Steel Asylum Match where Black Machismo wins.

We then see Mick Foley roll up to Jim Cornette's office and he leaves Mick in charge of the office and tells him to make himself at home. (Do I smell a Commissioner Foley story line brewing?) and then The Beautiful People come in ranting about Blue M&M's. Blah Blah Blah and then we get the match between The Beautiful People and Rhaka Khan, ODB and Rhino. Rhino gores Kip for the win.

X-Division Title match between Sheik Bashir and Consequences Creed. Bashir wins by holding the ropes. Pretty good match over all. I'm glad Bashir (formerly Daivari in WWE) got to showcase himself a little more. Consequences is definitely X-Division Title material.

Then Kong comes into Cornette's office with Saeed (who I think is a different person under the veil because she sounds different) bitching about Kong not being responsible for what she does. You know that almost could be threatening if it didn't happen in every match. Foley says he was left in charge......interesting way to put it.....

Knockout Title match between Kong, Taylor Wilde and Roxie results in no hardcore tactics and Taylor pinning Roxie. WHY WERE THEY TOUTING THE HARDCORE STYLE OF ROXIE IF THERE WAS NO FUCKING HARDCORE?!?!?!? Hardcore wrestlers don't normally thrive in regular wrestling matches because they are used to the weapons (at least Kay Fabe).

Cut to Cornette's office with AJ Styles spewing about Mick being there....3D comes in calling Styles a mark...Why are there porcelain masks on the wall of the office? 3D mouths off...whatever....Mick is going to be the Sock of the walk and leaves to prep to be the enforcer in the Angle vs Jarrett match....How much prep do you need?

Monster's Ball Tag Team Title match with Matt Morgan and Abyss vs LAX vs Team 3D vs Beer Money Inc with Steve Mongo McMichaels. Ok, I now I ranted about why he was being the ref, but I just realized he was a Chicago Bear and won the Superbowl with them. Ok. At least it makes more sense to me. Stupid pandering to the locals....I love James Storm coming down with a Beer Helmet with 2 bottles of beer in it....I loughed out loud at the Don West line of :Oh, the cheese grater right to the nuts!"....Wow Mongo super slow counts against Beer Money....This match should be an elimination match....I love elimination matches....it evens the playing fields....Ok...turns out the Mongo slow counts everyone....3D brought lighter fluid!!!!Abyss goes through a flaming table and catches fire for a few second....When Tenay doesn't know the name of a move he says that someone was powered down....odd coming from the professor where I learned most of the wrestling terms from listening to him commentate...I want a flaming tack table....but I don't get it. Hernandez takes a 3D Through a tacked up table and then James Storm steals the pin....Beer Money Inc retains the belts.

Something to note...we have had title matches and none of them changed hands....starting to feel like a WWE styled lineup....Just saying...If Joe loses the belt I will have to call Shenanigans on TNA for copying WWEs retardedness...

The next match is Booker T vs AJ Styles vs Christian Cage for absolutely nothing. Booker wins with a delayed Axe Kick off the top rope....West is talking about timing..but the timing was really off because Christian had to stand in position for way too long...

Next match is Angle vs Jarrett with Mick Foley as guest enforcer. I'm sorry to say that the match played out exactly like I thought it would. Ref bump, one of them tries to use a weapon (Kurt), Foley gets involved and an altercation ensues. Other person wins (Jarrett). Jarrett looked rusty, but he also wasn't as rusty as he could have been. At least they called it a Mandible Claw instead of Mr. Socko (probably because Mr. Socko is the WWE's intellectual property).

Last match is the World Heavyweight Title Match with Samoa Joe vs Sting. Why would Sting call this his biggest match of his career? Sting vs Flair? Maybe because the WCW Title is dead and desecrated by the WWE? Sting apparently won the title at the last 2 Bound for Glory events....that is interesting trivia....What the Fuck was that!?!?!? Joe lays Sting on the stairs and goes to the top and dropkicks him from from what I can count about 15 stairs up. He runs and falls that far, falling on concrete steps and also crotching himself on the railing....full force balls smashing against the railing.....but that was fucking cool....Sting does the Muscle Buster n Jo (kind of) and Joe jumps right up....Joe hits Sting with the Scorpion Death Drop and Sting jumps right up....Nash comes down to ringside...Sting tries to take his back and Nash takes it away....and Nash hits Joe with the bat....Scorpion Death Drop....Sting wins the title.....

And then a promo for Turning Point...with Mick Foley in the promo (wwho it was established only had a Bound For Glory contract) talking about the respect lines.....

Ok...first my reactions of the show....overall I'd give it a 6.5. I am disappointed at the ending only because it seems exactly like what WWE would do and I have always looked at TNA as the anti-WWE and for a while they were doing things specifically because it was so very not WWE programming....Having all of the belts stay except one, having the friend of the Champ come down and betray the Champ....I thought the wrestling was good and entertaining. The Jarrett-Angle match was well thought out and came off great, the Steel Asylum match was pretty good, the Monsters Ball match was entertaining (fiery tables!)....it's just the ending that I saw coming when every other belt stayed on the champions that makes me give it a low rating...

Diabolik's TNA Catch-Up October 9, 2008

Ok, so I wrote up through the first 3 commercial breaks and I decided that trying to do recaps of the matches is long and annoying and hard if I happen to be busy and using the show as background noise.

So Jarrett has Angles Gold Medal and has big plans for it.

Christian doesn't want to take sides in this respect issue in TNA and is forced to be the special referee in a match between AJ Styles and Booker T.

Cute Kip vs Rhino with Kipp winning after interference.

Sonjay Dutt vs Jay Lethal vs Consequences Creed vs Petey Williams for the X-Division title shot and Creed wins the shot by pinning Dutt. It seems that Bashir (Daivari) is better at throwing out promos, but he is still just an angry misunderstood Middle Eastern American and yelling about it.

Karen Angle talks to Mick Foley.

JB talks to Rhino who wants to play the game of Gore the Whore.

Excuse me.....Steve "Mondo" McMichaels is the guest ref for Monster's Ball? WHY THE FUCK!?!?!?!?!? I haven't seen him in wrestling in fuck all and now he is in the match because ........ he used to be a horseman for like 12 seconds? TNA stop this stupid shit of bringing old ass people that no one knows back to the ring to try to get pops. What is McMichaels biggest contribution to wrestling? Marrying Sable.....

Abyss and Matt Morgan vs Beer Money Inc (which I must say I hated the name at first but I love it now) in a Monster's Ball match. Team 3D shows up at ringside and "guest commentators." Abyss and Morgan win.

Mick Foley comes to the ring and it is shared that he is only contracted for the Bound for Glory Match. He comes to the ring with a mic....and a corduroy sports jacket....He says he will deal with interference into the match harshly...Mick calls Kurt to the ring followed by Jarrett....Jarrett hands Angle back his gold medal.....a sign of respect? Foley makes them shake hands....Kurt thanks Jarrett for the medal back and asks him to tell his 3 little girls that Kurt apologizes for Jarrett not coming home after Bound for Glory....I liked that promo....very vicious but not outrightly....

Cute Kip & The Beautiful People vs Phino ODB and Rakka Khan is announced. Oooo Boy!

Once again Booker is talking oddly. Ok, I understood the King gimmick and I understood the Harlem Heat gangsta gimmick...not this one where he was from Houston and now from Africa apparently.....fucking stupid....

And watching the promo for the Women's match I must say that I appreciated the Roxy posing as Raisha Saeed and attacking Kong.....

Booker T vs AJ Styles with Christian Cage as the Ref....AJ wins by barely getting his shoulder up after a bridged suplex. Booker goes after Christian and then Christian lays out AJ Styles....And Booker vs AJ vs Christian gets announced.....

And then a contract signing......I hate these stupid things.....now if there was a contract signing for every single match I can understand it.....but seriously....and why is the contract being signed like 3 days before the match?? At least the stipulation here is that there will be no rematch after this match by request of both wrestlers....that is different.....Joe says he does respect Sting....and gee...what a surprise, the contract signing has broken down into a bout of fisticuffs.....WHY MUST THEY ALL END THAT WAY?!?!?!?

So now that I have finished this episode I have questions.....

Why is Booker trying to talk like he is from the ghetto of Africa? What the Fuck is that about?

Why was the Brown Bag treatment so fucking feared? It's a paper bag. Maybe William Shatner couldn't act his way out of it, but still.....ok, maybe be ashamed of the fact that you just got beat up by 2 girls and they stuck a bag on your head....but how hard it is to take off? Did they like bind it to your skull? Or cut your nose off?

I kind of wish I had been following the backstage info on why Gail Kim left TNA but I will look that up after I am done catching up.

So lets see....I have 29 episodes left and 24 Days in which to watch it all.....FUN!

Diabolik's TNA Wrestling Catch-Up Part 2

*******As a note I know I am posting these updates both on Perfect Impact and on Diabolik's TNR. I am doing that on purpose, so if you read the GRAZR feed and wonder why there are double posts, there is a reason. Now on to the scheduled rant.*******

Ok. As I said in a previous post that this is my attempt to watch all of the episodes and PPVs between the last time I watched TNA wrestling to the Lockdown PPV that Rich, Colin and I are going to be seeing live.

I just finished watching the last of the September Impacts and just turned on the October 9, 2008 Impact.

I also talked to Rich and he said I won't ruin anything if I post "spoilers" for him. While they can't really be spoilers because they happened over 6 months ago, I wanted to make sure that he wasn't smacked in the face.

Ok, so in the drama of Samoa Joe winning the World Title and then fighting Booker T and etc.....we currently are building up to Samoa Joe vs Sting at Bound for Glory. Jeff Jarrett is back after a 2 year Hiatus due to a variety of things including his wife's passing away.

So September 18, 2008 marks the announcement that Mick Foley is coming to TNA. The following Impact (September 25) marks nothing about Foley except that he will be in the building the following show. I think this is the same episode where you find out that the Tag Team Invitational is going to be a Monster's Ball Match and Abyss flips out because he isn't supposed to use weapons (which I must say is a good move since it moves him out of the genre of "monster" who will come down with barbed-wire kitchen sinks and stuff and makes him be a "wrestler"). I honestly watched this one so late and forgot to write about it so I can't remember much, but I think that Kurt Angle starts shit talking Jeff Jarrett into making a match between the two of them at Bound for Glory.

October 2, 2008 marks the announcement of Mick Foley being the special enforcer for the Jeff Jarrett vs Kurt Angle match. My thoughts are this: If you are bringing Mick into this company for longer than 1 month, why the fuck isn't he in the Monster's Ball Match with like Terry Funk or just about anyone else? Why is he the guest enforcer? I mean if he doesn't want to wrestle that is one thing, but come on. You are paying a man so that you can promote his name which is known for falling off cages and losing an ear and stuff. Now he gets to point sternly at the participants and tell them "No no, you can't do that?" I know the reality is that he is going to get involved and either screw over JJ or Kurt, but still.....I want to see TNA use their money to promote great matches.....but I digress.

Um....that's all I can really remember. From this point on I think I am going to run a pseudo recap like I used to read for WCW when I couldn't tape it and give the breakdowns of the shows as they happen.....or I might just not care enough and just point out the things of note.

And I want to point out the irony of me saying that. I think that TNA has better young smaller wrestlers than WWE and I think they are in a position to showcase them better than they can the Heavyweights. I like TNA for the wrestling and sometimes the storylines. I have been fed up with WWE programming for so long that I vowed to take a year off from watching it, and if I watch Wrestlemania this year and can predict 75% of the match outcomes based on the roll in footage and the crowd reactions, I am done with WWE forever. The reason I saw irony in my statement of "things of note" was because that was all I could remember because my brain has been so polluted by WWE programming to just notice the hype and skip the midcard. The midcard is the best wrestling that TNA (and WWE most of the time) has in it's arsenal.

So with that said (and I think it makes sense....I kind of lost track of where I was going at some point) I am turning on the October 9 2008 Episode of Impact to see the last show leading up to Bound for Glory.

More to come.....
