It was looking like a very dark day for Impact Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett and GFW were talking about a “Corporate Hostile Takeover” then The GFW crew stole The TNA World Tag Team Titles from The Wolves in a well thought out execution. It all happened in a blur. Lashley was closing in a victory against Chris Mordetsky when GFW goons hit the ring, that drew out The Wolves, but the numbers were in favor of GFW. What happened next was shocking!
Jeff called for Karen Jarrett and out she came with a Feast or Fired Briefcase, the very briefcase won by Magnus at Feast or Fired! It was a gift for The Jarrett’s, which they used, perfectly, to have Brian Myers and Trevor Lee steal our titles. The Advantage lied with GFW.
Later, Bobby Roode, had a chance to get redemption for TNA and did he ever. Roode was perfect, sticking and moving and against PJ Black for The King of The Mountain Championship, Roode was in the zone. Now Bobby Roode is The King of The Mountain Champion and all that we to do next is get back The TNA World Tag Team Titles. Congrats to Bobby Roode on becoming just The 3rd King of The Mountain Champion, but the first TNA King of The Mountain Champion.
To hear many talk in Impact Wrestling you would think Gail Kim is unbeatable and the uncrowned Knockouts Champion at all times. It is often times a foregone conclusion that Gail Kim is going to win her matches and will be in the TNA Hall of Fame the second Gail decides to hang up her boots. To tell this to the current TNA Knockouts Champion Brooke is another story.
These very comments were read to Brooke recently and the champ just rolled her eyes and walked away. Brooke is a three time Knockouts Champion and has been putting up outstanding matches as of late. Keep in mind, it was Gail that assisted Brooke in winning the title and now Brooke can prove her reign isn’t a fluke. Gail has all the skills, but who is to say Brooke doesn’t either?
This match will go a long way in determining the future of The Knockouts Division.
ImpactWrestling.com has just learned that TNA World Champion EC3 and his new personal assistant Jeff Hardy will kickoff Impact Wrestling this Wednesday night. After we hear from The World Champion, EC3 and his bodyguard Tyrus will go to battle in tag team action against none other than Matt Hardy and Rockstar Spud.
With Jeff Hardy now under the employ of EC3, what will Jeff do as he watches his brother face EC3 and Tyrus? Will Jeff interfere on behalf of EC3 if he is ordered to? Will Matt hold resentment against Jeff for standing in the opposite corner? All these questions spell absolute glee for EC3, a man who loves to mess with the status quo.
One thing is for certain, EC3 and Jeff Hardy kicking off Impact is huge and the tag team match to follow will be incredible as well. It all goes down Wednesday night on Destination America.
As we get ready for Bound For Glory 2015 on Sunday, October 4th from Charlotte, North Carolina we will take the next 5 weeks to look back at the moments that made us watch in awe at the wrestlers from Impact Wrestling. The moments we will remember forever and the memories that will last a lifetime.

Bound For Glory 2012
TNA World Championship
Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries
The Event took place in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona. Austin Aries was the defending TNA World Champion and Jeff Hardy was the challenger. On the final Impact leading into this match, Austin Aries left Jeff Hardy lying in the middle of the ring with a vicious brainbuster. Who would earn the victory find out now!
An open letter to Jeff Hardy:
As an assistant of an unnamed top assistant here at Impact Wrestling I have become somewhat of an expert in this field. I’m sure, being Jeff Hardy, you are use to others assisting you. Well let me tell you, it might seem simple… but it’s a LOT OF WORK. Below are a few quick tips I’ve listed to help you along your journey to becoming an incredible assistant.
1) Anticipate needs.
You have to be ready for anything as a personal assistant. Errands, declining invites to social events, ordering and serving food and knowing generally everything about their life are a few of the top things I would focus on if I were you.
2) Act quickly.
I know you are recovering from an injury so don’t take this personally- but don’t be slow. When a high level executive has a request or a need- its usually right away. Examples include:
If he needs a steak from Ruth’s Chris: haul ass over the speed limit to get there.
If he needs someone to spot him at the gym: Don’t walk—RUN
3) Have refreshments available.
You are assisting a champion! His instrument must be prepared at all time! Not only does he make important calls, speaks in strategy meetings, and does meet & greets with the fans, but he’s also an athlete! Whether he is ringside on in the board room- have water.
4) Make sure kids aren’t around.
It’s a proven fact that executives & celebrities hate when children are underfoot during stressful or important times. Backstage: get all the kids out of the way.
5) Look for cues.
It’s helpful to have a secret signal between the two of you when he needs you to help him out of an annoying situation like Tyrus asking him for workout tips or Robbie E asking about dry cleaner recommendations.
6) Confidentially agreements.
This is just plain smart business Jeff. You’re a smart business man right? We all know we need “get out” clauses to make sure we aren’t left stranded in the dust. I would hate for you to get fired or sued just because you didn’t get it in writing. EC3 is lawyered up 24/7. You should be too.
7) Don’t play by the rules.
Our bosses have a lot of money. They can usually talk their way out of almost anything. You need to adapt this philosophy. Law enforcement, TSA, or even a dinner reservation wait lists do NOT apply to your top exec. Learn to sweet talk your way into almost anything to keep your boss happy.
8) Keep the desperate or destitute out of the way.
Here’s a secret- Execs really only want to seem like they care for others but they don’t. It’s now your job to keep them moving.
For example-you might have an unattractive girl trying to flirt with him. Always have an emergency call that he needs to take immediately. Use Aunt D if you need to.
9) Don’t take things personally.
If EC3 sends you hateful voicemails or text messages, belittles you in front of others or simply doesn’t acknowledge you publicly- that’s ok!! Don’t be upset. He is a busy man and you are an appendage to help make his life easier. It’s not about us; it’s about them!
10) Most Importantly: Tuning in to Impact Wrestling on Wednesday nights.
This may seem like a no-brainer; but let me explain.
Not only do you, Jeff, tune in to Impact, but also you are ON Impact so I get it. But you’ve probably only been concerned with your matches and rivalries. Now that you are an assistant that’s all changed. You have to watch it through the World Heavyweight Champions eyes. Be on the lookout for other storms brewing throughout the roster and make sure The Undefeated, Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion is aware of everything going on so he can stay on top!
Jeff: please know that these are merely suggestions. And you don’t have to follow them all…. But I’m just saying…I wouldn’t want to be on EC3’s bad side.
In just over a week the fate and direction of TNA will be at stake in a grueling Lethal Lockdown encounter. On one side, Team TNA, represented by former 2x World Champion Lashley, Drew Galloway, Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards will face, from GFW, Chris Mordestky, Jeff Jarrett, Brian Myers and Sonjay Dutt. The winning team takes control TNA for their respective companies.
It all started when Dixie Carter, TNA President, challenged Jeff Jarrett for shares in TNA. Dixie is the majority shareholder with Jeff being the minority shareholder. This Match is winner take all. Will Jeff Jarrett get TNA back? Will Dixie finally get rid or Jeff and Karen Jarrett for that matter?
This week on Impact Wrestling, Chris Mordetsky will represent GFW and Drew Galloway will represent TNA and they will go one on one with the winner earning the all-important “one man advantage.” See in Lethal Lockdown, the match starts with two men, one from each side and after a decided upon time, another man enters the fray and that continues until all competitors have entered the ring. As you can figure out, one team will always have a one-man advantage until that final participant enters the fray.
Galloway and Mordetsky will go one on one this week, but it weighs heavily on what will transpire next week in Lethal Lockdown with the fate of TNA hanging in the balance.
Recently Gail Kim was featured in Channel Guide Magazine Online.
About her Career...
“If you look at my career, I try not to get stale. I try to keep things fresh. There have been times where I did feel stale, but I try to change that. I’ve been in this business for a long time. I don’t want the fans to ever be bored. That’s why I attribute my wrestling style to always keeping it fresh and the matches interesting.
On the Dollhouse...
“They were part of One Night Only pay-per-views. All the girls were so supportive of them joining the roster. They are such pros and really respectful. We knew they had the passion and were working hard to get to that point. With Taryn, there were just things that had to change that fans don’t know about in terms of why Taryn turned heel. That’s up to creative to tell you. I can’t say, but when it happened I think everyone was kind of surprised.
