Welcome to three hours of LIVE SPOILERS from TNA Wrestling in Orlando, FL. By the end of this three show taping we should have a good idea of the Lockdown PPV matches heading to St. Louis on April 15th. Josh Rich, Mike WG, FL Indy wrestler Kahagas, Sean Waltman and legendary Japanese referee and New Japan official Tiger Hattori were in attendance. Despite being a three show taping things moved pretty well as Dave Penzer and Jeremy Borash kept things busy with raffles and talking about the show. No backstage footage was shown so you have to tune in to find out what was filmed including some sort of sit down between Father James Mitchell and Sting.
Hour one results:
During the entire first hour Bob Backlund worked out by Mike Tenay and Don Westâ<80><99>s location doing stairs on a block placed in front of him. I think all of us were tired for him as he did it during commercials and the cage teardown.
(1) In a preview of the Lockdown Xscape match, Jerry Lynn defeated Alex Shelley, Sonjay Dutt, the Austin Starr, Petey Williams and Shark Boy.
NWA World Heavyweight champion â<80><9c>the Instant Classicâ<80> Christian Cage, â<80><9c>the Phenomenalâ<80> AJ Styles and â<80><9c>Big Poppa Pumpâ<80> Scott Steiner made their way to the ring. They were booed as Cage officially made Steiner the third man for his Lethal Lockdown team. Steiner reminded Cage about the title shot he deserved. He also brought out Abyss as the fourth member of Team Cage. Father James Mitchell was with Abyss but not Mom. Styles asked Cage who the fifth member of the team was; Cage said it was going to be a surprise for later. Cage introduced Tomko as the final member of the Team but Tomko didnâ<80><99>t come to the ring when his music played. Finally Tomko came out carrying a house mic. Cage went to hug Tomko but he was stopped in his tracks as Tomko said he didnâ<80><99>t play second fiddle to anyone and wanted his promised title shot. Tomko said before he joins any team he wanted his title shot TONIGHT. Before Cage could finish his next sentence Kurt Angle, Rhino and Samoa Joe came out to the rampway. Angle said to Tomko that Cage has been a lying asshole about his title shot. Angle said he would promise a shot at Cage if he joined Team Angle. Tomko said he didnâ<80><99>t know who to trust and that brought Jim Cornette to the ringside area. Cornette said there would be match to determine what team Tomko would be part of at Lockdown. Cage tried to talk his way out of it but Tomko said Cornette had a deal.
Mike Tenay and Don West talked to the home fans.
(2) â<80><9c>Tennessee Cowboyâ<80> James Storm (w/â<80><9c>the Pride of Tennesseeâ<80> Jacqueline Moore) defeated â<80><9c>Showtimeâ<80> Eric Young.
Tenay and West talked to the home crowd once more before out main event.
(3) In a match to win Tomkoâ<80><99>s services at Lockdown, Team Angleâ<80><99>s Kurt Angle defeated Team Cageâ<80><99>s Abyss (w/Father James Mitchell).
Hour two results:
In the ring was stuff you would find out on a road construction site for an 8 Mile Street Fight.
(1) In an 8 Mile Street Fight, â<80><9c>War Machineâ<80> Rhino defeated Tomko.
During the break Rudy Charles handed off a book to speed read as the climbing continued.
(2) In a non-title match, Voodoo Kin Mafia (Kip and BG James w/Lance Hoyt) defeated NWA World Tag Team champions Latin American Xchange (â<80><9c>Notorious 187â<80> Homicide and Hotstuff Hernandez w/Konnan & Machete) via DQ.
(3) In a submission match, the Austin Starr defeated Senshi.
TNA managementâ<80><99>s Jim Cornette called a full locker room town meeting in the Impact Zone. It seemed this was a clarification of the Lockdown PPV which is listed at the completion of this report. Cornette actually accused Cage of pulling a Max Bialystock. He declared that whoever wins the pinfall in the Lethal Lockdown match gets the shot at the NWA World Heavyweight title at Sacrifice on May 13th. As the meeting ended the lights went out and came up to find Sting in the ring attacking Team Cage.
Hour three results:
Team Angle came out into the ring to talk. They were sporting Lockdown events shirts (probably available at www.tnawrestling.com ) Sting said he was sorry he didnâ<80><99>t return Kurt Angleâ<80><99>s phone calls and he truly loved TNA Wrestling. Sting wanted Angle to reveal the final member but he refused. Samoa Joe said he was losing faith in Angle about who the fifth person was. Angle said by the end of the hour we would all know who number five is (hopefully not Johnny 5 of Short Circuit fame.)
Between this and the opening match Borash brought out Kevin Nash who said he had a surprise, he was wearing a cup. He was actually out to introduce his protÃ©gÃ© â<80><9c>Black Machismoâ<80> Jay Lethal.
(1) In a non-title match, â<80><9c>Black Machismoâ<80> Jay Lethal (w/his hair out of the braids and was in full â<80><9c>Macho Manâ<80> regalia) defeated World X Division champion â<80><9c>the Futureâ<80> Chris Sabin.
Mike Tenay and Don West ran down the full Lockdown card for the home crowd.
(2) Robert Roode (w/Ms. Brooks) and â<80><9c>Pride of Tennesseeâ<80> Jacqueline Moore defeated Petey Williams and Gail Kim.
The NWA World Tag Team champions Latin American Xchange (â<80><9c>Notorious 187â<80> Homicide and Hotstuff Hernandez w/Konnan on crutches) came out to the ring dragging Brother Runt who had his mouth taped up. By mistake Konnan used the WWE name for 3D as he said LAX was looking for them tonight. They decided to make an example of Brother Runt for all the things the US government has done to Latin people. He decided to use a taser gun on Runt to show what the electrified cage was going to do to a human body. But before that happened Team 3D came out and asked LAX to let Runt go. LAX decided to shoot first and ask questions later, sending many volts into Runtâ<80><99>s body. The TNA medical trainer had to come out and remove the taser tips out of Runtâ<80><99>s body before moving him to the back for what might be additional treatment.
(3) Team Angleâ<80><99>s Samoa Joe defeated Team Cageâ<80><99>s â<80><9c>Phenomenalâ<80> AJ Styles
