THOSE BROS DON'T SLEEP THO!
Robbie E may be away at the moment, racing around the world with Brooke as part of CBS' The Amazing Race, but his bros have decided to keep busy the best way they know how. Jessie Godderz and DJZ have announced that they will enter the Tag Team Tournament tonight on IMPACT.
Godderz is a 2-time TNA World Tag Team Champion who has been on the hunt for revenge since the Bro Mans lost their belts earlier this year to the Wolves. DJZ is a former X-Division Champion and one of the Division's finest high-flyers. Together, they are 2/3 of the Bro Mans and they will do whatever it takes to get the TNA World Tag Team Championships back around their wastes.
One question comes to mind though... Say Jessie and DJZ win the tournament and become the #1 Contenders for the Tag Titles? What if they even capture the titles? What happens when Robbie returns for The Amazing Race? For now, that thought surely won't creep into Jessie and DJZ's minds. They have one focus and that is tonight's tournament kick-off!
Who will they face in the first round? Find out and catch all the action - including The Hardys and the team of EC3 & Tyrus - when IMPACT kicks off tonight at 9/8c on Spike TV!
Tonight on IMPACT, TNA Executive Director Kurt Angle will oversee the contract signing between Lashley and Bobby Roode, which will make their TNA World Heavyweight Championship bout official. The match is scheduled for next week's IMPACT (October 29), but, with the hostility between the two men, sparks are nearly guaranteed to fly.
Perhaps more importantly, Kurt Angle has promised to make an announcement that will "change the complexion" of this match. Obviously, Angle wants to protect the integrity of his World Title match so what could he have in mind? Will he bar MVP and Kenny King from ringside or take an even more drastic approach? While speculation is plentiful, the only way to find out will be to tune in to IMPACT on Spike TV tonight at 9/8c.
Lashley is your current TNA World Heavyweight Champion, a Bellator MMA fighter and one of the most dominant performers in recent history. Bobby Roode is the longest reigning World Champion in TNA history and a 7-time Tag Team Champion; making him one of TNA's most decorated wrestlers of all time. The rivalry between the two has been intense and, with TNA's biggest prize on the line, we're sure that these two warriors will take things to the next level,

One of the most feared men in TNA Wrestling today, Lashley, is set to enter the Bellator MMA cage once again tonight, as he competes at Bellator 130 against the undefeated Karl Etherington.
Lashley looked incredibly dominate in his last fight, showing very little ring rust after a one-year break from MMA competition. He made quick work of the fight, controlling the pace before submitting his opponent via Rear Naked Choke early in Round 2. A highly respected wrestler, 6 of Lashley's 11 victories were finished by way of submission.
"The Destroyer" faces his toughest opponent yet inside the Bellator MMA cage this Friday as part of a card that features Light Heavyweight Champion Emanuel Newton defending his title against Linton Vassell in the main event, as well as the Bellator debut of famed Women's MMA enforcer Marloes Coenen.
Make sure you watch Bellator 130, live and free, on Friday, October 24 at 9/8c on Spike TV!
In the meantime, we leave you with photos from Lashley's Bellator debut earlier this year.

Each week, IMPACTwrestling.com also host a blog from Robbie E as he and Knockout Brooke journey across the globe on CBS’ The Amazing Race. You can follow their journey on Fridays at 8/7c on CBS and then come to IMPACTWrestling.com to get Robbie’s inside scoop! Here's Week 4:
It was an action packed episode of The Amazing Race this week!!! We started out in the Shetland Islands, mon (they say "mon" there, right?), where we learned to herd sheep and and speak Shetland! After a 13-hour ferry ride, we ended up in Denmark!! I never heard of it either, bro...
Anyway... We found our car and headed to Sweden, which is apparently different from Denmark, but whatever. Once in Sweden, we got our next clue and we chose to take a task that involved a bike ride. BRO, it was way harder than we thought... But, you know what? Brooke held the cake, Robbie did the driving... BRObbie tho!
After putting together a cake, we had a successful ride to deliver it and then we were off to memorize some orders at a restaurant -- which I have to say: "Thank you, my perfect memory!" I dominated. I delivered those orders like only Robbie E could. I am the best waiter (not waitress) in all of Sweden. Try me, bro!
The mother and daughter team were arguing the whole time too, bro! It was distracting... And I thought Brooke was tough to deal with sometimes... Bottom line is... #TheWrestlers finished in 2nd place, bro!!! How do you say "We're the best, bro!" in Denmark? What about Swedish? BRObbie tho!
See you next week.... in Africa!!!
