Accompanied by Manik and “The Great” Sanada, “The Cowboy” James Storm makes his way to the ring; Strom introduces them as “The Revolution.”
Storm calls out Davey Richards, demanding an answer to his offer. Will Davey Richards join Storm?
The Wolves emerge. Eddie Edwards begins to answer Storm; Davey Richards takes the microphone. Richards tells Edwards that he can speak for himself.
Davey Richards says Storm is out of his mind – that he’s a Wolf – and that his answer is no. The Revolution attacks The Wolves!
James Storm uses a bull rope to lasso Davey Richards’ foot. Storm ties up the rope before smashing a chair across Richards’ leg/ankle! The Revolution leaves the ring; they return carrying a briefcase. Storm takes a shot at Eddie Edwards using the case and then he assaults Richards again.
Storm says the case is a “Feast or Fired” briefcase that guarantees him a Tag Team Championship match. He cashes in!
Since losing the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Lashley has not responded to one text, email or phone call from IMPACTWrestling.com. Lashley has stayed, somewhat, current on twitter and Instagram, sending inspirational quotes like, “Don’t stop dreaming just because you had a nightmare.”
However, lost in these tweets is a response from Lashley to TNA President, Dixie Carter. It was a response that was short and simple and to the point. In a way, it was a bone chilling response.
The original tweet from Dixie (@TNADixie) was a congratulatory tweet to Bobby Roode (@REALBobbyRoode) and also said we most likely have not seen the last of Lashley (@fightbobby). Lashley then responded with three words. “Someone must pay.”
Nothing more and nothing less on October 30th and, as of the writing of this article (Wednesday, November 11 at 3:15 EST), Lashley has not tweeted anything TNA related.
Last week, it was MVP who seemingly jumped the line and was granted an opportunity for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Bobby Roode. On the surface, that did not sit well with Lashley who walked right past MVP as we went off the air, it was a moment that spoke volumes.
What will happen tonight on IMPACT on Spike? Lashley will be in attendance and there is little doubt that the Destroyer will be angry and looking for answers. Will Lashley get what he is looking for?
So, this week we hit up Palermo, Italy... Wow. I must admit I regularly travel the world but this place was beautiful and that is said after being pretty much everywhere in the world at least once.
A perfect start to the leg was a pizza dinner, bro!!! You know I am always hungry so daddy was happy! Now, after that was one of the hardest things to do on the Amazing Race so far... Find a taxi at 6:30AM, bro! Where are they? The only place I've ever seen a cab roaming around early in the morning is in NYC. BOOM!
We ere the last team to find a cab so we had to move quick to catch up. We moved onto car racing which not only was super fun but also easy for Brooke, she loves cars and killed it!
Next, we chose to go sing opera (I'm kind of a big deal at singing, bro, ask DJZ) instead of to going to paint. Great choice too, because not only were we the only team to choose this (no pressure) but we also killed it, bro! Book me for your weddings or birthdays, I do a mean Britney cover, bro!
Finishing in 4th was not bad, we are going to start making up ground on the other teams. I can feel it, bro!!! Can you feel it??? See you next week!
Yesterday, Taryn Terrell spoke candidly with IMPACTWrestling.com regarding her situation with former friend Madison Rayne and where they stand now. As a result, Madison Rayne has asked for and been granted her opportunity to speak on this situation. Here is the exclusive interview with Madison Rayne.
Today is Veterans' Day in the United States. TNA would like to send a special thank you to all of those who have served our great nation whether past, present or future. We would also like to spotlight the newest veteran to join the TNA roster, Sergeant Chris Melendez. For additonal information, "Sarge" is featured in the latest edition of Time Magazine as part of their "Life After War" coverage. The issue is available on newstands now or available HERE for subscribers.
Chris Melendez is a former Army Sergeant, who served his country in Afghanistan and was awarded a Purple Heart. Because of injuries suffered in combat, the brave soldier returned home a single leg amputee. Melendez, a member of the Wounded Warrior Project, had another dream to realize when he returned home. He dreamed of becoming a pro wrestler.
Chris’ remarkable story begins as a kid growing up in Spanish Harlem. His grandmother introduced him to professional wrestling at a young age and, ever since, he has been hooked.
“The ability to captivate an audience without having to say any words is what got me hooked.”
Inspired by his father, a Vietnam Vet, and compelled by the events of September 11, Chris joined the U.S. Army at the young age of 17. At age 19, and with only 23 days of his Iraq deployment remaining, he sustained horrifying life-threatening injuries from an IED.
“When I was able to open my eyes after the explosion I looked across the battlefield to see what I thought was a fellow-soldier in need of help. I quickly realized it was my leg.”
After being resuscitated three times and enduring numerous emergency surgeries and procedures, Melendez’s long road of recovery took him to Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. Through pure grit and determination, cutting edge science and technology delivered via the VA, and support from friends, family and The Wounded Warrior Project, Melendez was walking with a prosthetic within 40 days.
In 2012, Melendez entered Team 3D Academy of Professional Wrestling in Florida where he trained day-in and day-out under the tutelage of Bully Ray and Devon. Now, TNA Wrestling can announce the signing of Chris Melendez to a multi-year contract.
Still known in the locker room as “Sarge”, Melendez is set to make his debut for the company during the August 5-7 tapings at New York City’s legendary Manhattan Center.
Over the past several weeks, TNA Knockout Taryn Terrell has learned a valuable lesson: don’t trust anyone. Taryn thought she had a solid friendship with Madison Rayne and that trust blew up in her face several weeks ago. In an exclusive video, Taryn Terrell speaks out on what has been going on between her and Madison and the affect it may have The Knockouts Championship in the future.

What a strange and twisted tale. Let’s start with Samuel Shaw and his obsessive personality. Shaw found a leader and role model in Gunner and, while that is common in this and any other business, Shaw obliterated the line between looking up to Gunner and obsessing over his new found friend.
It is tough to blame Samuel Shaw for his fondness of Gunner, just look back to the summer when Gunner was there to help Shaw with his “issues” and brought Shaw back to the TNA locker room. It seemed that the therapy helped and Samuel Shaw was rehabilitated. Samuel Shaw even paid homage to Gunner by getting his arms tattooed, much like Gunner’s ink. However, all that has changed and Samuel Shaw has not only turned his back on Gunner, Shaw attacked his former friend and this strange relationship between Shaw and Brittany has everyone asking many questions.
IMPACTWrestling.com reached out to several world renowned psychiatrists to get their take on this situation and when we briefed them on everything Shaw has done and then included what has been going on with Brittany, they said it would take years of therapy to get to the bottom of this. One can’t but wonder what B.F. Skinner, Sigmund Freud or John Watson would have to say about this development, however we can just sit back and watch in wonder what happens next in this sorted tale.
