Impact Wrestling 5-23-13: AJ Styles Stands Alone?

The show began with General Manager Hulk Hogan coming out to discuss the No Holds Barred TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match between Champion and the President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray and Challenger and TNA Hall of Famer Sting at the upcoming Slammiversary Pay-Per-View event. Hogan then has Sting come out; he then reminds Sting about the fact that he agreed that if he didn’t beat Bully Ray then he would never get another opportunity at the championship again for the rest of his career. While Hogan tried to persuade Sting into not going through with it, Sting made it clear that his mind was made up. Then, Hulk’s daughter and Knockouts Executive Brooke Hogan comes out and tells Hulk and Sting that she feels that neither one of them is at fault for all the power that Aces & Eights have gained, but that she is at fault because she was the one that fell for her estranged husband Bully Ray. Brooke was then about to resign as Knockouts Executive because she felt that it was best for TNA, but before she could, her father cuts her off before she does something she may regret. Bully Ray then …

OVW TV 4-13-13: Jamin Olivencia Finally Wins the OVW Heavyweight Championship, But At What Cost?

On this edition of OVW TV, our prayers were answered when it was announced that OVW Commentator Michael Titus was not there that night due to the fact that he was on assignment. I am definitely sick and tired of listening to this guy every single week. This guy needs to be removed from commentary permanently. Anyway, the show began with Jamin Olivencia calling out OVW Heavyweight Champion Doug Williams. Here’s the reason why; at the Saturday Night Special the week before, Doug Williams defended his championship against Jamin Olivencia. At one point during match, Williams actually drove his own shoulder into the steel ring pole to make it seem like Jamin did it. He then feigned an injury so that the ref would dub him unable to continue and throw the match out, thus weaseling his way out to keep his championship. Williams had pulled it off after being stretchered out of the arena and giving a thumbs up to the cameras. Back to Jamin calling out Williams, Williams came out wearing an arm sling and denying the allegations of his scheme. Then, out comes OVW Director of Operations Michael Hayes and shows everybody video evidence that Williams did …

OVW TV 4-6-13: Doug Williams Wants No Part of Jamin Olivencia

The show began with a security camera showing Jamin Olivencia arriving outside the arena. Then, out of nowhere, a truck nearly runs over him. Also, while OVW Director of Operations Michael Hayes is addressing the fans, he is interrupted by The Coalition. Just as The Coalition is about to attack Hayes, OVW Southern Tag Team Champions The Gut Checkers come to his aid. The Gut Checkers then tell Coalition members Crimson & Jason Wayne that they will put their championships on the line in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match. Michael Hayes makes the match official and bans the other members of The Coalition from ringside. However, just before the match officially begins, the other members of The Coalition come back out and attack The Gut Checkers. During the melee, one half of The Gut Checkers, Alex Silva, appears to get his head rammed quite hard into the ring post. Then, Michael Hayes comes back out and tells the other members of The Coalition that they are banned from the arena altogether. Afterwards, despite Alex Silva being completely out of it, the referee officially begins the match. The Coalition get the easy first fall; then, they figure they have all the time …

OVW TV 3-2-13 Review

OVW Director of Operations and former U.S. Military Serviceman Michael Hayes called out The Coalition and expressed his anger towards their recent actions, which have been disgraceful to all the U.S. Military Service Men and Women. He specifically directed it towards Crimson and Jason Wayne since they too are former U.S. Military Servicemen. He informed the two that they would be defending their OVW Southern Tag Team Championship against The Gut Checkers on this edition of OVW TV instead of at the Saturday Night Special. The Gut Checkers ended up regaining the championship from Crimson and Wayne. After the match was over, fellow Coalition members Joe Coleman and Jack Black challenged the new champions for their championship at the Saturday Night Special, which was accepted. Also, Michael Hayes informed Josette Bynum that she would be banned from ringside during the match between Trailer Park Trash and Flash Flanagan at the Saturday Night Special, which was to be TPT’s last match. Lastly, Robbie E made his first-ever appearance at an OVW event end teamed up with OVW Heavyweight Champion Doug Williams to take on the team of Jamin Olivencia and Rob Terry.
