No one would have predicted the outcome to last nights three-way Knockouts Championship Match.  Although, HAVOK did not need to be involved in the decision and she wasn’t, many believed HAVOK would handle both Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell well enough to escape with her title.

It is a bold statement to say that HAVOK would be able to defeat two such accomplished Knockouts, but the Knockouts Division has belonged to HAVOK for nearly half a year.  The now former champion has dominated and decimated since this summer and the future looked to be all HAVOK's until she was done.

The argument could, and should, be made that HAVOK was not defeated last night, Taryn Terrell defeated Gail Kim so don’t expect HAVOK to go away completely, we expect her to be back, stronger than ever, looking to reclaim the championship she lost. 

However, now it is party time for the New Orleans native, Taryn Terrell, as she captured her first Knockouts Championship!  The question remains how long will Taryn have to celebrate until every other Knockout on the TNA roster comes knocking on her door for a title opportunity of their own?  Taryn seemed to already be thinking about the next challenge when she spoke to IMPACTWrestling.com moments after winning the Championship.

 “I am, honestly, so excited! Being the Knockouts Champion is what I've wanted since the first moment I stepped foot in a TNA ring. I am on cloud nine!!! I have been through ups and downs in the wrestling business and I am beyond thrilled to have finally accomplished being champ. But, they say what's harder than getting to the top, is staying at the top... My focus is to retain this title as long as possible. We have an amazing roster of Knockouts and I'm honored & humbled to be the Knockouts Champion!!!!”

Last night, we were promised a new X-Division Champion on IMPACT. After Samoa Joe relinquished the championship due to undisclosed injuries, Executive Director Kurt Angle put together a thrilling one-fall-to-a-finish four way match last night. 

Four of the hungriest TNA superstars were involved. Low Ki vs. DJZ vs. Manik vs. Tigre Uno, all of whom could have left victorious and all of whom, at times, were close. However in the end, it was Low Ki who left with the title and will represent the X-Division as it’s champion for a third time.

As we celebrate Low Ki’s accomplishment and we know he will represent the division with tremendous pride and amazing matches, we cannot help but to think of Samoa Joe. The former champion who said the title will be like a beacon for his return and the epic match that may await us if Low Ki can remain champion until Joe returns.


The X-Division has always been an outstanding and exciting part of IMPACT Wrestling and should be for the foreseeable future with Low Ki as it’s champion and all the talented superstars that will be looking to take the title.  All the while, we know that Joe will be watching.

EC3 orders Tyrus to remain outside the ring, no matter what. Spud removes his jacket and comes face-to-face with his former employer. EC3 says he knows he ruined Spud’s life and that he’ll give Spud the first shot. EC3 leans forward.

Spud says, “Mr. Carter, I’m not going to hit you in the face – I’m going to kick you right in the balls!” Spud nails EC3 with a low-blow!

DISCOVERY COMMUNICATIONS ACQUIRES EXCLUSIVE BROADCAST RIGHTS TO TOP PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING LEAGUE, TNA IMPACT WRESTLING, FOR DESTINATION AMERICA

(Silver Spring, Md.) – Discovery Communications announced today that it has signed a multi-year deal with TNA (Total Nonstop Action) IMPACT WRESTLING to bring the popular league to homes nationwide on Destination America, the only network dedicated to celebrating the people, places and stories of the United States.  Destination America officially enters the ring with its first world premiere of IMPACT WRESTLING in January 2015. The series features some of the biggest names in professional wrestling, including Jeff Hardy, Bobby Roode, Kurt Angle, Bobby Lashley and Gail Kim. The partnership includes the U.S. premieres of additional TNA WRESTLING series and specials and provides Discovery Communications with international broadcasting rights in select regions, to be announced at a later date.

“Our partnership in this uniquely entertaining franchise with TNA IMPACT WRESTLING provides a significant addition to Destination America’s programming strategy,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Destination America, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Fit & Health and Discovery Family Channel. “The enduring, cross-generational enthusiasm of pro wrestling is felt by millions of fans around the country, from coast-to-coast and throughout the heartland.  We are delighted to bring this beloved American pastime to the one and only network dedicated to celebrating the unique spirit of the U.S., Destination America.”

“Our knockout partnership with TNA IMPACT WRESTLING continues Destination America’s mission of bringing our viewers the best of all-American entertainment, and going center ring with one of the world’s foremost professional wrestling leagues fits perfectly within our DNA,” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. “Wrestling has created a fiercely loyal, passionate and widespread fan base, and we look forward to being part of the TNA family.”

“We are very excited about Destination America being the new network for IMPACT WRESTLING and the partnership with Discovery Communications both domestically and across the globe.  Their commitment to promote and grow our brand in innovative and compelling ways was instrumental in knowing we had found the right home,” said TNA President Dixie Carter.  “Together we will create an experience that takes our fans on a new journey that will push the envelope of technology, including where we take our cameras, going deeper into our superstars’ lives and showing the reality of what it takes to create a weekly professional wrestling show, all while showcasing the very best male and female athletes in the world.”

TNA is a privately held sports entertainment company based in Nashville, Tenn., specializing in TV properties, events, merchandise, music, and the management and promotion of professional wrestlers. TNA annually delivers more than 500 hours of original content to millions of fans around the world.

The history of hardcore has been well documented in our industry.  Three letters have somehow stayed alive since the 1990’s and those letters are ECW.  One of the men who helped build ECW to what it became is Tommy Dreamer. Tommy is the Innovator of Violence and it is well documented that Tommy will never back down from a challenge especially one that is deemed to be hardcore.

Enter Bram, who has gone around casually calling himself, “The New King of Hardcore,” and Bram can do a ton to cement that new moniker tomorrow night by defeating Tommy Dreamer in a Hardcore match.

In a match up based strictly on athletic prowess, a match that doesn’t have this hardcore stipulation, many would place their money on the younger, stronger and faster Bram.  However, this is Hardcore, this is no rules, this is anything goes and Tommy Dreamer has a bigger heart and more determination than perhaps anyone in the history of this business. 

Is Bram The New King of Hardcore?  Is Tommy still The Innovator of Violence?  What will transpire tomorrow night on IMPACT in this Hardcore match?  Don’t miss what is promised to be physical and violent as anarchy rules between Bram and Tommy Dreamer.  Will it be a November to Remember?  By the looks of it, it will certainly be barely legal.
