(Spoilers) TNA iMPACT! Tapings (2 Weeks Worth)

Ryan Clark


Alan Wojcik of TNAWrestlingNews.com passed along the following:

Welcome to the second Spike TV/Impact tapings on October 11th from Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. Today we should see the finalizing of the card that is to be on display at “Bound For Glory” on the October 23rd. In case it wasn’t on the sites Team 3D is in Japan today.

This match was taped for Xplosion:

Apolo and Sonny Siaki defeated The Diamonds in the Rough (“Primetime” Elix Skipper and David Young w/Simon Diamond) when Diamond’s interference backfired and Siaki hit the Siakalypse Now or Ace in the Hole (I get them mixed up sometimes). After the bell Siaki and Apolo were beat down by the trio.

TV Hour One to air October 15th and October 17th:

The show began with a recap of AMW beating down Team 3D in their own blood.

(1) In a handicap match, “Alpha Male” Monty Brown defeated Mikey Batts and Jerrelle Clark after he POUNCED Clark and hit Batts with a powerbomb. Did I mention Brown caught Batts coming off the top rope with a cross bodyblock. Brown got the house mic and welcomed us to the Serengeti, telling us NO ONE would stop him on his quest to the NWA title. That brought Lance Hoyt to the ring. Hoyt told Brown he better not forget about his desire for the title.

Shane Douglas spoke to Larry Zbyszko about the Naturals defending the title against America’s Most Wanted. He was interrupted by Raven who was still hot about Jarrett getting his title and Nash getting his shot at “Bound For Glory.”

(2) Matt Bentley (w/Traci Brooks) defeated David Young (w/Simon Diamond).

Weird moment, Bentley came out of the babyface tunnel. Young jumped Bentley as he was escorting Traci out of the ring. Bentley was on the defensive after a back suplex and a vicious corner whip. Bentley fought back with a neckbreaker and a to rope elbow. Diamond distracted him but it backfired as Bentley tossed Young into Diamond, hit the flapjack followed by a superkick to win. After the bell Petey Williams hit the ring and hit Bentley with the Canadian Destroyer. Williams kissed Traci and was ready to hit her with the Canadian Destroyer before Chris Sabin came down to interrupt Williams who pulled Brooks’ dress up to show off her underwear. Sabin and Williams traded punches before Williams went to the locker room. Bentley and Sabin had words in the ring but they parted without coming to blows.

After the break ended Don West and Mike Tenay spoke on camera to the home audience. They cut to the exterior of a funeral home. AMW (“Tennessee Cowboy” Storm and “Wildcat” Chris Harris), Team Canada, Gail Kim, Jeff Jarrett, Abyss and James Mitchell held a “funeral” for Team 3D. Storm drank beer and Team Canada banged hockey sticks. After Mitchell eulogized about the “deceased”, Harris and Storm spoke about why they joined with Jarrett. Money, power and to show the new teams like 3D they couldn’t take the spot they earned in TNA. Mitchell said they were going to be back for a funeral, for Kevin Nash. As we were leaving the home Storm tried to urinate in one of the coffins, telling Harris he had to pee real bad.

(3) Rhino defeated Sabu.

Welcome to ECW Redux. Sabu got the early advantage until he missed a moonsault. Rhino laid in punches before locking in a chinlock. Rhino hit a running kick and forearm to the back but his third attempt Sabu sent him over the top rope. Then Sabu followed him over with a tope’. Both men got chairs and twice hit them together, before Rhino hit Sabu in the head. Rhino went to power bomb Sabu off the top into the chairs but Sabu fought out and hit Rhino with a huricurana. Rhino was close to losing when Abyss came out but Sabu tossed the chair in his face. When Sabu got refocused on Rhino he was hit with the GORE. Abyss hit the ring and he was followed by Jeff Hardy Justas Abyss was going to open his black bag of tacks. TNA blackshirt Security hit the ring to break the four men up before they caused any further damage to each other, before their Monster’s Ball match on the PPV.

They played a graphic hyping next week’s matches.

(4) In AJ Styles X Division Open Challenge: Christopher Daniels defeated Shark Boy and Sonjay Dutt but didn’t defeat the third person, AJ STYLES.

Last week on TV Daniels bragged to Styles he could beat ANY three people Styles could find in fifteen minutes. So Styles sent Shark Boy to the ring first. The home crowd got to see a clock ticking back from fifteen minutes. Shark killed some clock running from Daniels and getting a two count after a rude awakening. Daniels hit the Angle’s Wings with it looked like 13:38 on the clock. Dutt hit the ring at 12:58 and hit Daniels with chops and a springboard elbow. Daniels and Dutt briefly went to the floor after Dutt hit a slingshot dive. Once back in the ring Dutt got a two count, followed by a powerdrive elbow, Great Muta Style. At some point they went to commercial because the clock in the building went off screen and reappeared with 7:44 left. Daniels was locked in a submission move that needs to be seen because I can’t describe it. Daniels bodyslammed Dutt three times before tossing Dutt back first into the buckles. Daniels hit Dutt with a gutwrench suplex but got two. Daniels kept running to Dutt’s body parts in the corner and Dutt hit clotheslines followed by the Undertaker rope walk drop to the arm. At four minutes left Dutt was close to winning but Daniels refused to be beaten even after a Powerslam. Dutt missed the Hindu Press and Daniels hit an enziguri and the Angel’s Wings at 3:05 on the clock. Daniels demanded the third person and out he came, AJ STYLES. Daniels bailed and Styles followed hit into a chair shot and other damage on the floor. Daniels took Styles back to the ring and punished the X Division champion. One minute remained when Daniels slammed Styles and got a two count. Daniels set Styles for the Angel’s Wings but Styles countered out with a backdrop. At thirty seconds the fists flew and Styles hit four clotheslines. As the bell rang Styles was ready to springboard into the ring but Daniels left the ring. Styles told Daniels he wasn’t going to chase after him; he was going to wait for the PPV.

TV Hour Two to air October 22nd:

(1) Samoa Joe defeated “Primetime” Elix Skipper (w/Simon Diamond)

I guess Joe asked for a smaller opponent to prepare for Liger. The fans chanted “Joe’s going to kill you.” Joe hit a backchop, front kick and a knee to the face. It was followed by the facewash and the Ole’ kick. Skipper Matrixed out of the pin attempt and kicked Joe in the back. Skipper covered Joe for two counts but was hit with a Powerslam for two. Skipper was put on the top turnbuckle and Joe brought him out with the Muscle Buster before getting the tap out with the Kokina Clutch.

Mike Tenay and Don West spoke on camera probably about the upcoming matches.

(2) America’s Most Wanted (“Tennessee Cowboy” James Storm and “Wildcat” Chris Harris) won NWA World Tag Team championship defeating the Naturals (Chase Stevens and Andy Douglas).

Not even six months ago the Naturals were heels and AMW was the top babyface team. Not a shock with the hatred between these four the fighting went on the floor and Stevens hit a shooting star press onto AMW. Gail Kim came out as the show went to commercial. Once back from break the Naturals were in control until Kim grabbed Douglas’ leg and he followed her around the ring….right to Harris who was waiting with a title belt shot to the face. Douglas was busted open but survived the AMW attack and tagged out to Stevens. Stevens hit Harris with a DVD for two but Storm saved his partner. Harris got Kim’s shoe and hit Stevens but Stevens kicked out of the pin. During he action between Stevens and Harris, Charles got knocked out and the Naturals hit the Natural Disaster. Kim went for a huricurana but Stevens moved and she hit Harris with it. The Naturals went to hit Kim with the Natural Disaster but Jeff Jarrett hit Douglas in the crotch. Storm hit Stevens with a beer bottle, grabbed Harris who he laid on Stevens to win the belts for the seventh time. The foursome beat down the Naturals as the show went to break. Stevens was busted open with the beer bottle (Stevens was busted open Thursday in a cage match as part of the NWA National Convention.)

(3) Team Canada’s Bobby Roode (w/Scott D’amore) defeated 3 Live Kru member Ron “the Truth” Killings (w/BG James)

Roode tossed the former NWA World champion around as the Pit sang the National Anthem. Killings went on the attack and clotheslined Roode to the floor. Killings followed him out with a suicide tope’. D’amore tried to shout encouragement to his man and it worked as Roode got on the offensive once the action came back to the ring. The two traded right hand punches before Roode hit the Val Venis inspired knee lifts and a sidewalk slam. Kip James came out to ringside to talk to BG as Konnan was shown watching in the locker room and he came out to argue with Kip as Killings made a comeback. Killings slid to the floor and Kip punched him. That led to Konnan attacking Kip. While all this went on Team Canada hit the ring and hit Killings with the hockey stick flag pole to win the match.

Shane Douglas spoke to Jeff Jarrett, Monty Brown, James Mitchell and Abyss. Brown said TNA forced him into this match. Because he didn’t want to hunt with Jarrett, he wanted to hunt Jarrett. Jarrett said Brown needed to impress him in the ring tonight. Then he told the same thing to Abyss and James Mitchell. Of course this means Kevin Nash will be out at the end of the main event along Daniels, Sabu and Rhino.

(4) NWA World Heavyweight champion Jeff Jarrett, Abyss (w/James Mitchell) and “Alpha Male” Monty Brown defeated NWA World X Division champion AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Lance Hoyt.

This was hard hitting and filled with “Hardy Sucks” chants from the Pit. Both teams had control of the advantage during the match but Hardy got beat down for several minutes by the heels until Abyss missed a led drop and tagged Styles who hit Abyss with a dropkick and Jarrett with a Pele’ kick. All three men did topes onto the heels who powdered to the floor. During this a commercial took place and the action came back to the ring, not before the six men beat each other around the ringside area. Styles punched Jarrett in the corner and hit Abyss with a tornado DDT. Styles went for the Clash but Jarrett cut it off and went for the Stoke but Styles countered, only to be kicked in the face by Abyss and clotheslined by Jarrett. Brown came into beat down Styles with punches, kicks and corner whips before bringing Abyss back in the match. Abyss hit a splash and tagged Jarrett who traded pinches with Styles before colliding when both went for body blocks. Brown and Abyss argued over who Jarrett tagged and the fighting again as Hoyt was Black Hole Slammed by Abyss but Hardy saved him. Hardy hit Abyss with the Swanton but Brown saved Abyss. Brown hit Hardy with a fallaway slam but Hoyt kicked Brown n the face. Jarrett saved Brown. Jarrett went for figure four but Styles hit an enziguri and Daniels hit the ring to attack Styles. Brown looked like he was going to POUNCE Jarrett but Jarrett moved and Styles got the POUNCE to lose the match. The fighting began as Daniels locked Styles in a choke hold, Rhino came to fight Abyss but he went with Hardy into the crowd, Sabu came out to fight Abyss and finally Kevin Nash (wearing a Red Wings jersey) came out for Jarrett. (Props to T-Shirt Mike for flashing the Tampa Bay Lightning jersey at Nash.) Apparently Cassidy Riley came out to the announcers table and said Raven would be at the PPV.

This was taped for Xplosion:

Samoa Joe and Alex Shelley defeated Cassidy Riley and Austin Aires when Riley tagged Aires out and Riley’s springboard moonsault hit Shelley’s knees. Joe tagged in and hit the Muscle Buster followed by the Kokina Clutch.
