IMPACT WRESTLING | Wednesdays 9/8c on SpikeTV

Search Listing

One of the most fascinating developments in recent weeks has been James Storm’s “revolution”. His part in the rebirth (or brain-washing) of Sanada is a remarkable tale indeed. However, what is the end goal of Storm here!? Could it be that he is assembling an army of souls with which he will attempt to rise to the top of TNA? Or did he truly see something in Sanada… something that he (and Sanada) felt wasn’t being seen by The Great Muta.

We caught up with Austin Aries, who faced the wrath of The Great Sanada last week, to get his thoughts. “I don’t know what the hell that was. I’ve developed a rivalry with Sanada since we first crossed paths in Japan and that was truly scary to see – some sort of transformation occurred in that match and I really don’t know what it was. What I do know is that James Storm had no business getting involved – and that’s my biggest problem. I prove every single week that I am the greatest man in the world and a victory was stolen from me. Well, this week, I intend to make up for that. So, Storm and Sanada, I’m coming to IMPACT tomorrow night. Don’t worry about finding me, we’ll find you.”

After what we witnessed last week, it will be very interesting to see what Austin Aries will do in response to The Great Sanada and James Storm. Moreover, what can we expect from Storm himself — and will this new persona of Sanada lead both men back to the top of IMPACT!?

Find out tomorrow night at 9/8c on Spike TV!

 

Another major match has been announced for tomorrow’s edition of IMPACT on Spike TV! We will be crowning a #1 Contender for the X-Division Title and the contenders are Low Ki, Homicide, Manik, Crazzy Steve, DJ Z and Tigre Uno. Whoever emerges victorious will be the next to challenge current champ Samoa Joe.

Two of the X-Division superstars with the most steam heading into the match are the recently returning Low Ki and Homicide. Low Ki has been a one-man wrecking crew and highlight reel, leaving fans in awe after his insane recent matches. Then there’s Homicide. From the minute the arena fills with the sounds of gun shots, fans are on their feet and Homicide delivers another impressive performance. 

Manik and DJ Z are also ones to watch. Both former X-Division Champions, both who always shine in the ring – and both who need to rise back to the top of the division once more. That leaves our newcomers, Crazzy Steve and Tigre Uno. Tigre has come close to TNA gold before, competing in a series of matches against then champ Sanada that dazzled. Crazzy Steve hasn’t had an opportunity to challenge for TNA gold yet, but has left crowds speechless time and time again.

When these 6 men enter the 6-sides tomorrow night, we are guaranteed an absolutely brilliant X-Division match, just as the winner of the match is guaranteed a shot at the X-Division Championship. Don’t miss tomorrow night’s show, as we crown a new #1 Contender for the X-Division Title!

IMPACT airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Spike TV!

 

 

Preview Wednesday's huge IMPACT WRESTLING broadcast on Spike at 9/8c! If you can't watch the action on Wednesday, make sure to set your DVR!

This Wednesday night on Impact, a new #1 Contender for the TNA World Title is decided! After weeks of controversy over who won the Six-Sides of Steel Cage match, it comes down to one match to determine the next man to face Lashley for the TNA World Heavyweight Title.  Two best friends will battle as Bobby Roode battles Eric Young. Who will walk away as the new #1 Contender?

The Knockouts gold will be on the line on Impact as well! It's the most intense rivalry in the division as Knockouts Champion Gail Kim defends against Taryn in the rubber match of their epic series.  And on Wednesday night, Kurt Angle has demanded there must be a winner! Who will walk away as the greatest KO in the world today?

TNA World Champion Lashley has been dominant and taking on all challengers. But the champion is getting restless and wants more competition.  We understand this Wednesday Lashley is daring anyone to step up and face "The Destroyer." Who will dare step in the ring with the seemingly unbeatable World Champion Lashley?

The high flying stars of the X-Division will be in action as well. One match full of high impact action where the next challenger for Samoa Joe¹s X-Division championship will be determined.  Low-Ki battles Homicide, Manik, DJZ, Tigre Uno, and Crazzy Steve.  Only one will advance to the title match.

All this and so much more this Wednesday night at 9/8c on Spike!

Did you see Wednesday night’s IMPACT!? If you caught the show, we’re sure that, at one point, you cringed and thought “what a creepy bastard!” That moment was universal for every TNA fan as we watched Gunner return to his hotel room to discover Samuel Shaw wearing Gunner’s military uniform and saluting. 

We have all attempted to give Samuel Shaw a fair shake at his return to IMPACT – and he’s shown signs of improvement, but it has to be said that he took an incredible leap backwards from that one moment. What in your right mind would possess you to dawn a friend’s uniform while he’s out of the room!? NOTHING. That’s what. We all have better sense than that. 

Bare in mind, this is not Shaw’s first “creepy” action. One can’t help but recall the vicious assaults, the stalking of TNA ring announcer Christy Hemme, the battles with Mr. Anderson and everything else that has preceded this moment for Samuel Shaw. 

For weeks, he’s asked that we trust him and forgive him… After what happened on Wednesday night’s show, who knows if that will ever be possible!? 

ImpactWrestling.com asked Gunner to comment on his situation with Samuel Shaw and he declined. Has he gotten himself involved in something he should’ve avoided!? Our guess is that the answer is “probably”…

IMPACT Coverage by Bobby James

August 27, 2014

From the crowd, Kurt Angle runs down tonight’s card, including the first of three matches between The Hardys, Team 3D and the World Tag Team Champions, The Wolves!

MVP, Lashley and Kenny King interrupt Angle. 

MVP claims to have lost respect for Kurt Angle because he panders to the fans who, with their smart phones and 140-characters, think they can book a match. MVP mocks NYC fans by calling them “sissified savages with no class and even less dignity.”

MVP claims Lashley is the “King of New York.”

Tommy Dreamer enters the ring saying they’re better than this. Dreamer says Lashley finally lived up to his potential and became the most dominant champion professional wrestling has ever seen.  Kenny King, with a cheap shot, sends Dreamer flying out of the ring. 

Dreamer, with a Singapore cane, attacks Kenny King.  Angle interrupts and books Lashley against Tommy Dreamer in a New York City Street Fight!  Lashley attacks Dreamer and the bell sounds.

Seg2NYCBrawlLashleyDreamer

MATCH #1:
New York City Street Fight
LASHLEY w/ MVP and KENNY KING vs. TOMMY DREAMER

“The Innovator of Violence,” Tommy Dreamer commands an early advantage when he attacks Lashley with a trashcan lid and a Singapore cane. Lashley counters a swing of the cane, dropping Dreamer onto the ramp. Lashley powers Dreamer onto the guardrail and strikes hard with a fist to Dreamer’s face.

Lashley rolls Dreamer into the ring and drives two stiff shoulders into his abdomen before locking in a bear hug.  Dreamer counters, but is powered down to the mat by Lashley. 

Kenny King attempts interference, but Dreamer sidesteps a spear from Lashley that connects with King.  Dreamer grabs a trashcan and smashes it over Lashley’s head, and then he leaps from the top rope with a Singapore cane.  Lashley counters with a powerful clothesline that he follows up with a spear for the three-count.

Winner:  Lashley

Backstage:  Madison Rayne talks about her No. 1 Contenders match against Taryn Terrell

TARYN TERRELL vs. MADISON RAYNE

Taryn leads with a series of quick pin attempts.  Madison’s out easily and slaps on a headlock.  Taryn reverses, sending Madison flying across the ring.  Madison charges toward Taryn, but misses and crashes onto the arena floor.  Taryn leaps from the apron and misses a diving crossbody. 

Madison attempts a series of pins, then sends Taryn flying backwards with a dropkick.  Taryn kicks out and charges Madison with a series of clotheslines.  Madison fights back, dropping Taryn with a Northern Lights Suplex and a two-count.

Taryn counters another suplex attempt by Madison with a snap suplex of her own. After shoving Madison from the top rope, Taryn flies with a clothesline and follows-up with a series of sit-down clotheslines. 

Taryn scores a neckbreaker and connects with a flying crossbody, but Madison’s out a two.  Taryn charges Madison in the corner, but she gets her foot up, sending Taryn to that mat.  She attempts a cover with her feet on the ropes.  The referee stops the count.  Madison tries for a running boot to the face but Taryn counters a neckbreaker for the win. 

Winner:  Taryn Terrell

Backstage:  Bobby Roode walks into Kurt Angle’s office, where he finds Eric Young.  Angle walks in, instructing the camera crew to leave.

Match #3:
LOW KI, TIGRE UNO, and CRAZY STEVE
vs.
HOMICIDE, DJ Z, and MANIK

Homicide and Crazy Steve start that match, which Homicide seems to command with ease.  Crazy Steve tags out to Tigre Uno as Homicide tags in DJ Z.  Tigre Uno weathers and counters attacks from DJ Z, Manik, and Homicide. 

Homicide finally gains control of Tigre Uno, but his team’s advantage soon disappears as Tigre Uno asserts his dominance over DJ Z. 

Low Ki storms the ring and assaults Manik.  Manik tosses Low Ki into the air and Low Ki counters with a double foot stomp onto the chest of Manik! Homicide rushes into the ring with a hard clothesline to Low Ki. 

The match breaks down and bodies fly everywhere.  Manik, looking to close in on a suicide dive, catches a surprise kick to the head from Low Ki.  Low Ki drops Manik with Ki Krusher for the win.

Winners:  Low Ki, Crazy Steve and Tigre Uno

Backstage:  Bobby Roode and Eric Young leave Kurt Angle’s office. Angle says they’ve reached a decision.

Seg5RoodeEY

Bobby Roode enters the ring to address the controversial finish to last week’s six sides of steel match.  Roode says Angle has decided to host another No. 1 Contender’s Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. 

He says the match between himself and Eric Young will take place next week.

Eric Young enters.  Bobby Roode says it’ll be an honor to face EY next week. Eric Young says he was the fans’ World Champion – that he did it for them. EY says Bobby Roode is the best wrestler in the business.

Backstage:  The BroMans are taking a Tinder challenge to see who has more matches.  Robbie E and Jesse match with a TNA Knockout.  They won’t reveal her identity, but both vow to “hit her up” and go on a date with her. 

Seg6EC3Rhino

MATCH #4:
EC3 w/ ROCKSTAR SPUD vs. RHINO

EC3 attacks Rhino immediately, but Rhino counters and throws EC3 to the outside.  Rhino launches EC3 into the guardrail, drives his face into another rail and then rolls him into the ring. 

EC3 jumps forward with a clothesline as Rhino reenters the ring. EC3 chokes him on the middle rope before landing an elbow drop and driving Rhino’s face repeatedly into the mat. EC3 locks in a choke hold.

EC3 hits Rhino with a Carter clothesline and reapplies his choke hold. Rhino refuses to tap and eventually explodes with a series of hard takedowns.  Rhino stalks EC3, but Rockstar Spud grabs his ankle – distracting both Rhino and the referee.  EC3 nails a low blow.

Rhino powers out at two and counters EC3 with a clothesline and a bell-to-belly suplex.  The crowd chants “Gore! Gore! Gore!” But again, Spud interferes and EC3 attacks with a chair!  EC3 bashes Rhino over and over, threatening the referee and Rockstar Spud in the process.


Winner:  Rhino (via disqualification)

Seg7Sanada

“The Cowboy” James Storm enters the IMPACT Zone promising to deliver “The Great Sanada.”

The Great Sanada crawls into the ring.  He removes his hood to reveal face paint representative of The Great Muta.  His opponent enters next:

MATCH #5
THE GREAT SANADA vs. AUSTIN ARIES

The Great Sanada displays a new aggression against his familiar opponent Austin Aries.  Sanada bows to James Storm and maintains control of the match. Sanada drops Aries face-first onto the turnbuckle and hoists Aries to the top rope.

Sanada climbs the ropes and Aries counters, sending Sanada falling to mat.  Storm distracts the referee and Sanada spits green mist into the eyes of Austin Aries.  Then he kicks Aries in the face and covers for the three.

Winner:  The Great Sanada

Seg8ChrisMelendezDebut

Video:  The introduction of Sgt. Chris Melendez, an army war hero, who dreamed to become a professional wrestler.  He officially joins the TNA Wrestling roster…next.

Kurt Angle, with Team 3D and Mr. Anderson, introduces Chris Melendez and welcomes him to the IMPACT Wrestling family.

Mr. Anderson says he received a call from the Wounded Warrior Project.  They asked if he could train Chris to become a professional wrestler.  He said he didn’t have a ring, but that he sent the tapes to Team 3D, who offered to train him for free. 

Bully says this is one of the proudest moments of Team 3D’s career.

Seg9TagTeam

MAIN EVENT
Tag Team Championship Series – Match 1
TEAM 3D vs. THE HARDYS vs. THE WOLVES

Bully and Davey Richards begin the match.  Eddie Edwards and Davey exchange rapid tags and double team assaults to the shoulder of Bully Ray. Bully reverses one attempt and takes control of Davey Richards with a series of loud chops!

Davey returns a series of kicks to the chest of Bully.  Bully powers Davey to the mat and Devon climbs the turnbuckle.  Eddie nails a kick to Devon’s head, sending him from the top rope.  The Wolves take control until The Hardys break into the match. 

Team 3D ejects The Hardys, then power Davey Richards down with a double team drop.  Devon stalks Davey and Matt Hardy tags himself into the match.  He drags Davey to his corner and tags his brother Jeff.  Together, they assault Davey, continuing to work the arm.

Matt goes for the pin following a Side Effect.  Devon interrupts the count, which brings Eddie Edwards into the match.  Eddie attacks Devon and Matt, then Bully and Jeff.  The Hardys begin to gain control, but The Wolves counter, evading a double clothesline from the Hardys and connecting with a suicide dive onto Team 3D! 

Jeff flies over the top rope, taking out The Wolves.  Matt leaps from the top rope, connecting with a moonsault to Team 3D and The Wolves.  Matt Hardy and The Wolves make it back into the ring and there’s a near-fall on Matt.


Devon tags himself into the match, but The Wolves howl and drop back-to-back double foot stomps onto Devon! Bully breaks the count, but is met with an ejection from the ring by Matt Hardy.  The Wolves battle Devon and The Hardys in the ring, but Team 3D gains control long enough to score a 3D and the victory.

Winners:  Team 3D

Team 3D will choose the stipulation for the second match. 

 

Last week, IMPACT ended in controversy as Bobby Roode and Eric Young escaped 6-Sides of Steel at the exact same moment. TNA fans across the globe have been asking what will happen and who is the real #1 Contender. On Wednesday night’s IMPACT, we got the answer from Executive Director Kurt Angle!

After meeting with both men, it was revealed that the only fair solution was to schedule one more match. On next Wednesday’s IMPACT, it will be Bobby Roode vs Eric Young - one–on-one, with the #1 Contender spot on the line. Win the match, and you are the next challenger for Lashley’s TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

“I’ve got all the respect in the world for Bobby,” ’Showtime' told IMPACTWrestling.com, “he’s one of my best friends and he’s one of the best wrestlers in the world. However, next week, I’m going to be better. It’s going to be a tough match and, truly, the best man will win. Not only that, whoever wins will be the next World Heavyweight Champion. Bank on it!”

Bobby Roode also commented, “Eric Young and I go way back. Hell, we started in the business together. I know what he’s capable of and I respect him more than nearly anyone I’ve ever met. He’s one hell of a wrestler. But, next week, I will prove once again why I am the IT Factor of Professional Wrestling. Bobby Roode will be your new #1 Contender – and I will have earned it with a victory over one of the best in the biz. One thing’s for sure though, Lashley’s got his hands full with whoever wins.”

Both men have immense respect for one another and both have proven that they are dominant forces in TNA. Next week, get ready for one of the hardest fought matches in TNA history! Bobby Roode vs Eric Young, the winner will get a shot at Lashley’s TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
