Wrestling Hall of Famers Cannot Be Heels

wwe-hall-of-fame-logo-HOF TNA-HOF

There is one particular thing in the world of wrestling today that really bothers me. There are some Hall of Famers that are currently heels. The problem with this is that Hall of Famers are supposed to be setting a good example for the next generation of wrestlers. Who else is going to teach some of today’s young punks in wrestling a lesson in respect and humility? All of this applies to any Wrestling Hall of Fame throughout history (e.g. WWE Hall of Fame, TNA Hall of Fame, etc.). Currently, Hall of Famers including Paul Ellering, The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray & D-Von) and last I checked, Jeff Jarrett, are heels in the wrestling companies that they are currently working for. Hall of Famers are supposed to be people that fans can respect and if they are heels, it makes it very hard for fans to respect them. Therefore, Paul Ellering, The Dudley Boyz and Jeff Jarrett need to be turned into faces ASAP. Bottom line, it is irrational for Hall of Famers to be heels.…

TNA Slammiversary XI: New Champions, Kurt Angle Hall of Fame Bound, Bully Ray Retains World Championship

Slammiversary XI marked the 11th anniversary of TNA. New champions were crowned, the TNA Hall of Fame 2013 Inductee was revealed, and one champion retained his championship. In a 3-Way Ultimate X Match, Kenny King defended his X Division Championship against both Chris Sabin and Suicide. In the end, it was Sabin who climbed across the X-shaped ropes above the wrestling ring to grab the championship belt and become the new X Division Champion. Just like last year, the X Division Champion will get to trade in his championship in exchange for an opportunity at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at the upcoming Pay-Per-View event, Destination X. Austin Aries was successful last year, can Sabin be just as successful? In a 6-Man Tag Team Match, the team of Samoa Joe, Brutus Magnus, and the returning Jeff Hardy defeated Aces & Eights members Ken Anderson, Garett Bischoff, & Wes Brisco. Also, in the Gut Check tournament final, Jay Bradley defeated Sam Shaw to earn a spot in the upcoming Bound For Glory Series, which will determine who will challenge for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at TNA’s biggest show of the year, Bound For Glory IX this year. Also, Aces & …

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 …

Impact Wrestling 5-16-13: Sting’s Last World Championship Opportunity?

The Show began with General Manager Hulk Hogan coming out to call out Abyss and thank him for returning last week and aiding TNA in the war against Aces & Eights; however, Abyss’ brother Joseph Park came out instead. Park then tells Hogan how ecstatic he is that his brother is back because he has been looking for him for a long time. They then get interrupted by Aces & Eights members TNA Television Champion Devon & D’Lo Brown. Park then goes on to tell Devon that he has had of enough of The Aces & Eights’ actions and challenges Devon to a match. Devon responds by telling Park that until he proves something to him, he refuses to face him. D’Lo then offers to fight Park and prove a point so that he can earn back his Aces & Eights vest. Hogan then decides to make the match official for the evening and says that if Park wins, then he’ll get to face Devon in a non-title match at the upcoming Slammiversary Pay-Per-View event. Also, TNA Knockouts Executive Brooke Hogan told Mickie James that she will get an opportunity at Velvet Sky’s TNA Knockout Women’s Championship next week on …

Impact Wrestling 5-9-13: Abyss Returns

The show began with TNA Hall of Famer Sting and Kurt Angle coming out to get AJ Styles’ answer of whether or not he would team with them to take on Aces & Eights members TNA World Heavyweight Champion Bully Ray, TNA Television Champion Devon, & Ken Anderson later in the main event of the evening. AJ Styles comes out, then Angle asked him if he was in or out. When AJ wouldn’t answer, Angle started to lose his patience. Sting calmed Angle down and then tried to get through to AJ by reminding him of who he was, but when AJ still wouldn’t answer, Angle once again got in AJ’s face, but AJ took off. However, Angle was in hot pursuit of AJ and the two then got into a brawl at the entrance ramp. Then, with Sting distracted by the brawl, Bully Ray, Devon, & Anderson sneak attack Sting. Afterwards, TNA cameras caught up with AJ backstage and asked him if he was in or out, but AJ once again refused to answer and stormed out of the building. After doing that, it could only be assumed that AJ was out; therefore, Sting and Angle still needed to …

Impact Wrestling 5-2-13: Sting Is the New #1 Contender

The show began with General Manager Hulk Hogan calling out TNA Hall of Famer Sting to apologize for not accepting his help in the ongoing war between TNA and Aces & Eights. The two shook hands and then Sting asked Hulk for his permission to put together a Six-Man Tag Team Match between three of TNA’s best against three members of Aces & Eights for next week on Impact Wrestling, which Hulk agreed to. Then, Hulk started discussing the next #1 contender to the President of The Aces & Eights Bully Ray’s TNA World Heavyweight Championship, but before he can go any further, Matt Morgan comes out and complains about the fact that he thinks he’s just gonna hand Sting the #1 contendership. Hulk then explains to Morgan that nothing is going to be handed out anymore and that everything must be earned. With that being said, Hulk made a #1 contenders’ match between Sting and Morgan for the main event of the evening and the winner would go on to face Bully Ray for his championship at the upcoming Slammiversary Pay-Per-View event. Also, in a Three-Way X Division Match to determine the #1 contender to Kenny King’s X Division …

Impact Wrestling 4-25-13: Sting Returns

The show began with James Storm coming out giving credit to AJ Styles, who was standing amongst the crowd in attendance, for defeating him last week on Impact Wrestling. Storm then addressed The Aces & Eights attacking him after the match and then dared them to come out and fight. Instead, he gets interrupted by Bad Influence (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian). Bad Influence then addresses the fact that they were attacked by Aces & Eights as well the previous week and that they think that they should reform the faction known as Fortune, in which Styles, Storm, Daniels, and Kazarian were once members of, and take down The Aces & Eights. While AJ left everybody with more questions than answers, like he has been for the past number of weeks, Storm made it clear that he had no interest in reforming Fortune when he decided to fight them instead of Aces & Eights, since they wouldn’t come out. Unfortunately, the numbers’ game caught up with Storm and Bad Influence left him lying in the ring in the end. Then, Aces & Eights come out to pick up the scraps, but then, Joseph Park comes to Storm’s aid. Park is …

Impact Wrestling 4-18-13: Aces & Eights Continue To Terrorize TNA

The show began with a 2-on-1 Handicap Match between Kurt Angle and Aces & Eights members Garett Bischoff & Wes Brisco. Despite the fact that it was 2-on-1, Aces & Eights exploited their numbers’ game even more when the VP of Aces & Eights D’Lo Brown distracted the referee allowing Bischoff to use a chain on Angle and allow Brisco to get the pin and the win for his team. After the match, Aces & Eights then injured Angle with a brutal double-powerbomb. Also, in a Triple Threat X Division Championship Match, Kenny King defended against Zema Ion and Petey Williams. Towards the end of the match, while Petey had Zema locked in the Sharpshooter submission hold, Kenny jumped on top of Petey and picked up Petey’s scraps by pinning Zema. Since Zema was the one who got pinned, he now heads to the back of the line for an opportunity at the championship while Petey will get to be one of Kenny’s challengers in the next Triple Threat X Division Championship Match. Also, TNA Television Champion and Aces & Eights member Devon was scheduled to defend against Magnus; however, just as Magnus made his entrance, he gets jumped by …

Impact Wrestling 4-11-13: Bully Ray Retains, Jeff Hardy Injured

The show began with TNA World Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode & Austin Aries defending against Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez in a 2-Out-of-3 Falls Match and if Chavo & Hernandez lost, they could never team together again in TNA. The champs jumped their challengers before the match even started. Once the match started, the champs were able to get the easy first fall. Fortunately, Chavo was able to rally back and get the second fall for his team. In the end, the third and final fall went to Chavo & Hernandez, thus becoming the new champions and remaining a team. Also, Joseph Park attempted to use his legal actions as a lawyer to present a marriage annulment for Knockouts Executive Brooke Hogan and her estranged husband TNA World Heavyweight Champion and President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray. However, TNA Television Champion and Aces & Eights member Devon came out and tore up the marriage annulment, advised Joseph not to get involved in the Aces & Eights family business, and knocked out Joseph with a chain. Also, Brooke Hogan informed Joey Ryan that she was disgusted by his actions as Knockouts Referee last week and that he not only has …

Impact Wrestling 4-4-13: Aces & Eights Gain and Lose

The program began with Aces & Eights coming to the ring to address the TNA Fans. TNA Television Champion Devon announced that he had an envelope in his hand that contained something that would change the relationship between TNA World Heavyweight Champion and President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray and his estranged wife Knockout Executive Brooke Hogan. Then, the VP of Aces & Eights D’Lo Brown announced that he was handed a notice from TNA Management that he had been fired from TNA. Despite that, he was at the arena for the rest of the show. I’m guessing that Aces & Eights invited him to the arena last night. Also, Joey Ryan offered Brooke Hogan to have him be Taryn Terrell’s replacement as the Knockouts Referee. Brooke reluctantly agreed, but warned Joey not to touch any of the knockouts in any way. Then, Joey officiated his very first match involving the knockouts (and, as far as I know, his very first match in general) when TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Velvet Sky teamed up with Taryn Terrell to take on the team of Gail Kim and Tara. Not only did Joey disobey Brooke Hogan’s warning by touching the knockouts, but …

Impact Wrestling 4-4-13: Marriage Implosion?

Tomorrow night on Impact Wrestling, TNA World Heavyweight Champion and President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray will call out his estranged wife Knockout Executive Brooke Hogan.

Impact Wrestling 3-21-13 Preview

This Thursday on Impact Wrestling, Aces & Eights will tell the whole story of how they pulled off their 9-month con. Also, the TNA World Tag Team Championship will be on the line when champions Bobby Roode & Austin Aries defend against Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez. The X Division Championship will also be on the line when champion Kenny King defends against both Zema Ion and the returning Sonjay Dutt in a 3-Way Dance Match-Up. Sonjay Dutt is the fans’ only hope in this one. Also, Knockouts Executive Brooke Hogan will address the incident from Lockdown between Knockouts Referee Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim. Taryn is currently on probation and Brooke will make a ruling on Taryn’s future in TNA. As I’ve stated before, I think Brooke should relieve Taryn of her duties as Knockouts Referee and make her a full-time competitor and make a match between Taryn and Gail. In addition to all of this, Joseph Park will go one-on-one with Matt Morgan. Tune in this Thursday at 8/9ct on Spike.…

Impact Wrestling 3-14-13 Review

The show was supposed to begin with a TNA World Tag Team Championship Match between Champions Bobby Roode & Austin Aries and Challengers Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez, but just as Guerrero & Hernandez entered the ring, out of nowhere comes Aces & Eights and attacks them. The match never ends up taking place and Aces & Eights then introduce the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion and President of Aces & Eights, Bully Ray. Bully Ray revealed to the entire world that for the past 9 months, everybody had bought into the ruse that Bully Ray was against Aces & Eights, but was actually the President of Aces & Eights all along (the higher power). Bully Ray then dared General Manager Hulk Hogan to fire each and every member of Aces & Eights. Also, in a Knockouts Tag Team Match, it was TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Velvet Sky & the returning Mickie James taking on Gail Kim & Tara. During the match, it was revealed that Knockouts Referee Taryn Terrell had been put on probation after getting physical with Gail Kim this past Sunday at Lockdown. At one point in the match, Gail Kim exploited that by face-shoving Taryn to the …

Aces & Eights Take Over Website

I just visited ImpactWrestling.com and The Aces & Eights have completely taken over the site. Everything on the site is all about Aces & Eights. There is no page for the superstars, no results info for last night’s edition of Impact Wrestling, no anything. Just Aces & Eights! This is a total outrage.…

TNA Lockdown 2013 Review

In the TNA Knockout Women’s Championship match, Velvet Sky beat Gail Kim to retain her championship, but not without controversy. At one point in the match, Gail Kim began to argue with Knockouts Referee Taryn Terrell about a pinfall. When Gail continued to shove and berate Taryn, Taryn finally got fed up and took Gail down with a spear. This allowed Velvet to hit In Yo Face (her finishing move) on Gail to get the pin and the win. Now, as far as the controversy, it was Gail who got physical with Taryn first. Therefore, Taryn didn’t screw Gail, Velvet certainly didn’t screw Gail, Gail screwed Gail. In other action, Wes Brisco beat Kurt Angle in a Steel Cage Match with some assistance from fellow Aces & Eights member VP of Aces & Eights D’Lo Brown. As for Lethal Lockdown, Team TNA emerged victorious in a hard-fought battle against Aces & Eights. In the main event, Jeff Hardy put his TNA World Heavyweight Championship on the line against Bully Ray in a Steel Cage Match. With his wife Knockouts VP Brooke Hogan and his father-in-law General Manager Hulk Hogan sitting at ringside, they were both shocked to witness Bully Ray …
