TNA House Show Results (1/6): Wallingford, CT

Nick Paglino

Thanks to Paul for sending in the following:

Went to TNA house show in Wallingford. 
Pretty close to a sellout., if not.  Very live crowd especially since Jeremy Borash offered  several backstage passes to the loudest fans

Triple threat : Kazarian vs  Lethal vs Robbie  E.   Very good fast paced match.  Lethal retains X division title .

Knockout title.  Madison Rain vs  Micki James. 
Jeremy introduces  Earl Hebner.  Crowd Chants "You screwed Brett. "   Hebner takes off  striped shirt to reveal his  " Damn right I did" t-shirt." Mickie gets strong reaction. Excellent  knockout match.  Hebner catches Madison  across his knee saving her from a fall and then kisses her.    Madison Turns the tide for a win .   Micki  recovering from the stunning blow kisses Hebner.

Anderson vs  Pope: ( change in card)  Both introduced .  Anderson  gets spotlight in ring  waiting for mike to drop but there is none.  Finally Jeremy  has to stand  on something  to hand down the ring mike.  Anderson  does his thing.   Asks how many assholes are in the building  
Match is pretty good.  Crowd mostly behind Anderson who eventually  gets the win.  Anderson then says that Jeremy’s announcement was so weak a little kid could do better and proves it by going into the crowd to have a small boy announce his name..

Tag Team title Beer Money vs Ink inc.:   Very good match by both teams .  Not as much aerial stuff  by INK as expected but still good action.  Beer Money comes out on top. Afterward slight friction between Ink members.

Lengthy intermission  as Jeremy gives way to Don West hocking everything but the kitchen sink while tossing T-shirts and Dvds into the crowd.  Hebners sign t-shirts and  Micki James signs programs(huge line for Micki)   

After intermission Jeff Jarrett  offers  $100,00 challenge to fans.  Jeremy interrupts saying someone backstage accepts.  Tommy Dreamer emerges and offers to have a  no DQ falls count anywhere hardcore match instead.  "ECW" chant breaks out .
Jarrett accepts.    
Even though it is falls count anywhere they stay close to ring  exceot going up the entrance stairway where Jarrett  unsuccessfully tries to toss Dreamer over.
Eventually chair comes in ring  and  Jarrett wins by  giving Dreamer the Stroke on the chair.  Maybe the weakest match of night.

Main event TNA title Jeff Hardy vs Matt Morgan: (change)  Strong reaction for both.   Matt is homeown  from nearby Fairfield but still a large portion of crowd pulling for Hardy.  good match. Matt has Hardy for the count but  Brian Hebner was knocked out.   Jeff recovers with Twist of fate and Hebner makes a miraculous recovery    to make the 3 count.  

Afterwards Jeff Hardy drops the heel  act and   poses  for pictures in the ring (for $20 of course) Jarrett  signs photos for $5.00.   Hebners continue to sign $10..00 t-shirts .   Robbie E , Cookie and Lethal  come out to meet crowd for autographs and pictures for free

Notes:   Borash announced about a possible return to Wallingford for a PPV.

Best Pops:  Micki and Anderson
                     Morgan and Hardy
Heat: Hebner
           Small amount for Pope.

Morgan’s right leg seemed to get a little stiff during the match and may not have been a work.
