Impact Wrestling 6-27-13: Austin Aries Is Suicide?

 

TNA Gut Check Returns

In a TNA Gut Check Match, “The Big O” Adam Ohriner, who is currently not a part of TNA, went one-on-one with Ryan Howe, who is currently spending time down at TNA’s Developmental System Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW). While I was a fan of both these men, I decided to root for Ohriner. In the end, it was Ohriner that came out on top. But will it be enough to impress the TNA Gut Check Judges (Bruce Prichard, Al Snow, & OVW Owner “Nightmare” Danny Davis) to advance to having the opportunity to earn a TNA contract, or will Howe advance?

Mickie James Retains, Velvet Breaks Down

After weeks of ducking Velvet Sky, TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Mickie James finally had to defend her championship against Velvet, the woman who was entitled to a rematch after losing the championship to Mickie. Although Velvet was medically cleared to compete, her knee was not 100% going into this match and Mickie took full advantage of exploiting that. In the end, it all paid off when Mickie defeated Velvet to retain her championship. After the match, in an interview with ring announcer Christy Hemme, Velvet expressed her frustrations …

OVW TV 6-16-13: The Coalition Gets Outsmarted

The show began with Jay Bradley coming out to address the fact that OVW Owner “Nightmare” Danny Davis told him that he has to earn his opportunity at the OVW Heavyweight Championship. Bradley then said that he plans on doing that by going through every contender that is in line for an opportunity. After reminding everybody he took #3 in Ryan Howe out last week on OVW TV, he then issued an open challenge to #2 in OVW Television Champion Randy Royal. Randy Royal (accompanied by Tony Gunn) came out and had every intention of denying the challenge, until Gunn would accept on Royal’s behalf. I am not a fan of either one of these guys and I was not sure who to root against in this one. In the end, when Royal attempted to use a chain, Gunn snatched it from him; Bradley then hit Royal with his signature maneuver “The Boomstick” to get the pin and the win in this non-title encounter. I would like to point out that last week on OVW TV, during the match between Royal and Gunn, Royal feigned a heart attack to get the victory over Gunn, thus betraying his trust. My only …

OVW TV 5-11-13: King Mo Returns, The Coalition Sink to A New Low

The show began with a one-on-one match between Elvis Pridemoore and Coalition member Joe Coleman. In the end, other members of The Coalition come out and gang up on Pridemoore, until Jay Bradley, who was attacked by The Coalition backstage last week on OVW TV, comes out to put a stop to it. Bradley then challenges any two members of The Coalition to a match; OVW Director of Operations Michael Hayes comes out and makes the match official for the main event of the evening. Throughout the night, people had been offering Bradley to be his tag team partner for the match, but Bradley told everybody that he doesn’t want a partner. Eventually, backstage, Hayes tells Bradley that he needs to have a partner or the match won’t happen; Rob Terry then walks in and confirms that he is his partner for the match. Also, it was the return of current MMA Fighter and TNA Superstar King Mo making his first OVW appearance, as well as having his first official match in TNA. His opponent was VIP Club member J Best (accompanied by the other members of The VIP Club); King Mo ended up forcing J Best to tap out …

OVW TV 5-4-13: OVW Takes A Stand Against The Coalition

The show began with OVW Director of Operations Michael Hayes putting together a Six-Man Tag Team Main Event for the evening between the team of Rudy Switchblade and The Mobile Homers (Adam Revolver & Ted McNaler) against any three members of The Coalition. Hayes then announces that he’ll have members of the OVW locker room surrounding walkways and doorways, so that other members of The Coalition won’t interfere in the match. Also, after defeating Jessie Belle Smothers in a non-title match earlier in the night, OVW Women’s Champion Trina is approached backstage by Eddie Diamond & Timmy Danger and Eddie pleads with Trina to give Eddie’s girlfriend Epiphany a rematch for the championship. Trina agrees to it, but only because she says she’s a fighting champion. Also, Heidi Lovelace calls out Taeler Hendrix to set the record straight about the gifts that she has been sending to Taeler for the past couple of months. Heidi then tells Taeler that Dylan Bostic doesn’t care about her, Ryan Howe doesn’t care about her, but that she does. Taeler responds by telling Heidi that she needs time to figure out what all of this means before walking off. To be honest, I don’t …

OVW TV 4-27-13: The Coalition Continues Its Terror

The show began with The Coalition coming out; conspicuous by his absence was the leader Crimson. Second-In-Command Jason Wayne reminded everybody that OVW is in a state of war. Then, OVW Director of Operations Michael Hayes comes out and tells them that there are a bunch of guys in the locker room that want to get their hands on them. He then had those guys come out; the men that came out were Rob Terry, OVW Television Champion Rockstar Spud, Randy Royal, Tony Gunn, Eddie Diamond, and surprisingly, Jay Bradley. Bradley made it clear that he did not like or care about the other guys that were opposing The Coalition, but he has an issue with The Coalition because he feels that they ruined his opportunity to make a statement. Michael Hayes then decides to make a 12-Man Tag Team Match for the main event of the evening between The Coalition and the six guys from the OVW locker room standing in the ring. Also, while Ryan Howe is getting ready for his tag team match backstage, Heidi Lovelace comes in and tries to tell Howe about the gifts that Taeler Hendrix has been receiving for the past several weeks. …

OVW TV 3-30-13: Doug Williams Screws Doug Williams

The show began with #1 contender to the OVW Heavyweight Championship Crimson reminding champion Doug Williams about the deal that he and Williams made as far as preventing Jamin Olivencia from becoming the #1 contender to Williams’ championship. That deal was that Crimson could have his championship opportunity at anytime and anywhere and Crimson Told Williams that he wanted his opportunity that night. Doug Williams reluctantly agreed. Also, the 24/7 match between Rudy Switchblade and Jessie Godderz continued and it still continues on as we speak. Also, during Paredyse’s match with Albert E. Baxter II, Brittany DeVore appeared on the titantron and vowed vengeance upon him, Brandon Espinosa, and Chris for the stunt that they had pulled on her the previous week. Despite the minor distraction, Paredyse still managed to defeat Baxter. Also, it was the battle of the rockstars when OVW Television Champion Rockstar Spud defended his championship against “Wrestling’s Rockstar” Ryan Howe. Ever since Rockstar Spud made his first OVW TV appearance, I’ve been waiting for these two rockstars to encounter one another and wondering what would happen between the two. I’m a fan of both of these guys, but I decided to root for Rockstar Spud. During …
