Things That Need To/Should Happen In TNA In 2014

tna 2014The New Year has officially begun and there are a few things that I think need to, or at least should, happen in TNA in 2014.

 

Let Taryn Terrell Take Her Rightful Place

At the Top of the Knockouts Division

 

When Taryn Terrell first arrived in TNA in 2012, she started out as the referee for all the knockouts’ matches. Shortly after, she spent time at TNA’s Developmental System, Ohio Valley Wrestling (OVW), and had a brief run as OVW Women’s Champion. Many months later, she got into a conflict with Gail Kim. This not only led to Taryn being relieved of her duties as a referee and made into a full time competitor, but it also led to one of the most memorable knockouts rivalries in recent memory. These two women took the knockouts division to new heights when they competed against one another in two of the most physical, as well as memorable, knockouts matches in TNA history. First, it was Taryn who was victorious over Gail in a Last Knockouts Standing Match at TNA Slammiversary XI. Then, it was Gail who knocked off Taryn in a Ladder Match a few weeks later on an edition of …

When Will Taryn Terrell Get An Opportunity?

Taryn_Terrell

I feel that the one woman who deserves an opportunity at the TNA Knockout Women’s Championship is a woman who we haven’t seen for a little while, and that woman is Taryn Terrell. I mean look at what she has done/accomplished; she beat the first-ever and longest-reigning TNA Knockout Women’s Champion in history, Gail Kim, in a Last Knockout Standing Match and took Gail to the limit in a ladder match. After having Gail’s number like that and putting her body through all that hell, don’t you think it’s about damn time that Taryn gets her opportunity at the championship? I mean what else does she have to do?…

Impact Wrestling 6-20-13: Sting Reveals the First Member of His New Main Event Mafia

On this edition of Impact Wrestling, two significant things took place. First, the Executive In Charge of the Knockouts Brooke Hogan invited the knockouts to the ring for her “State of the Knockouts” address. First, Brooke had One Dirty Bitch & her husband Eric Young give up the TNA Knockout Women’s Tag Team Championship. Due to the fact that Eric is a man, he and his wife were never officially champions; the championships now remain vacant. Then, Brooke announced that the following week on Impact Wrestling, TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Mickie James will finally defend against Velvet Sky. Brooke also announced that Taryn Terrell and Gail Kim will go one-on-one in a Ladder Match on an upcoming edition of Impact Wrestling; whomever wins that match becomes the #1 contender to the TNA Knockout Women’s Championship. Also, the previous week on Impact Wrestling, TNA Hall of Famer Sting announced that he would be forming the new Main Event Mafia, a faction that Sting was once a member of. The first member of Sting’s new Main Event Mafia was revealed to be soon-to-be TNA Hall of Famer Kurt Angle, another guy who was once a member of the Main Event Mafia. Who …

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 5-30-13: Jeff Hardy Returns At Slammiversary

On the final edition of Impact Wrestling before the upcoming Slammiversary Pay-Per-View event, at the beginning of the show, it appeared that Aces & Eightsh had turned on D’Lo Brown, thus turning D’Lo face. Also, after Aces & Eights members D.O.C. and Wes Brisco interfered in the match between fellow Aces & Eights cohort Garett Bischoff’s and Samoa Joe’s match, thus giving Joe the win by disqualification, Joe’s tag team partner Brutus Magnus came to his aid and both men cleared the ring of Aces & Eights. Afterwards, Joe announced that at Slammiversary, it would be Aces & Eights members D.O.C., Bischoff, & Brisco against Joe, Magnus, and the returning Jeff Hardy. Also, during new TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Mickie James’ championship celebration, she told the TNA Fans that there have been a lot of people questioning the way she won the championship from Velvet Sky the previous week on Impact Wrestling when she targeted Velvet’s injured knee. Mickie then asked Velvet to come out so that she could clear the air. After Velvet came out, Velvet said that everything was cool between them and that she wants her rematch for the championship. Mickie responded by saying that she would …

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 5-9-13: 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 4-11-13: 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 4-11-13: What will AJ Styles’ Decision Be?

Tomorrow night on Impact Wrestling, TNA World Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode & Austin Aries will defend against Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez in a 2-Out-of-3 Falls Match and if Chavo & Hernandez lose, they can never team together again in TNA. Also, Taryn Terrell will go one-on-one with Gail Kim. We will also find out the fates of the two recent “Gut Check” contestants, Adam Pearce and Magno. One will be eliminated and one will go on to get an opportunity to earn a TNA Contract. Whomever it may be, he needs to get at least to “Yeses” from the “Gut Check” Judges to get the contract. Also, AJ Styles has had one week to decide whether he stands with Aces & Eights or with TNA. What will AJ’s decision be? Finally, in the main event, it will be TNA World Heavyweight Champion and President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray defending against Jeff Hardy in a Full Metal Mayhem Match. Tune in tomorrow night at 8/7ct on Spike.…

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. What will happen if/when these two come face-to-face and will Brooke’s father General Manager Hulk Hogan get involved in any way? Also, in a 10 Man Tag Team War Match, it will be Team TNA (Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Magnus, Eric Young, and Joseph Park) taking on Aces & Eights (TNA Television Champion Devon, D.O.C., Wes Brisco, Garett Bischoff, and Mike Knox). There will also be a Knockouts Tag Team Match when TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Velvet Sky teams with Taryn Terrell to take on Gail Kim and Tara. Also, Sonjay Dutt will be taking on Mason Andrews and Petey Williams in a triple threat match to determine the #1 Contender to Kenny King’s X Division Championship. Lastly, the monthly “Gut Check” returns as Adam Pearce goes one-on-one with Magno to earn an opportunity at getting a TNA contract. Tune in tomorrow night at 8/7ct on Spike.…

Impact Wrestling 3-28-13: The Issues Continue

It was Open Fight Night on this edition of Impact Wrestling, meaning that anyone could call anyone out and that person would have to answer. Right before Jeff Hardy could call someone out, he was interrupted by Aces & Eights. Then, Aces & Eights member Mr. Anderson started to talk smack to Hardy, which led to physicality between Aces & Eights and members of the TNA locker room. After the dust had settled, Jeff Hardy had challenged Anderson to a match later on in the main event. Speaking of Jeff Hardy, General Manager Hulk Hogan told Hardy that he could choose the stipulation for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship match when Hardy challenges champion and President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray in two weeks on Impact Wrestling. Also, Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez called out Bad Influnce and annouced that Hulk Hogan said that whichever team got the win would be the #1 contenders to TNA World Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode & Austin Aries. Chavo & Hernandez got the win, thus becoming the #1 contenders. Also, after security prevented TNA Hall of Famer Sting from entering Hogan’s office, Sting decided to call out Hogan. Hogan answered the challenge and …

Impact Wrestling 3-21-13: Bully Ray Reveals All

On this edition of Impact Wrestling, TNA World Heavyweight Champion and President of Aces & Eights Bully Ray told the whole story behind his 9-month plan to get to where he is right now. Basically, it was all about manipulating the people he used and brainwashing his fellow Aces & Eights members. Also, General Manager Hulk Hogan said that he felt there were four guys in the TNA locker room that really stepped up against Aces & Eights last week and he had them come out to the ring. These four guys were Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, and Magnus. After they were all in the ring, Jeff Hardy proposed an idea to Hogan. That idea was that Hogan put Joe, Angle, Magnus, and Hardy himself in a fatal 4-way match to determine the #1 contender to Bully Ray’s championship and Hulk agreed. Jeff Hardy ended up emerging victorious, thus becoming the #1 contender. Also, a few new twists have been added to the X Division. These twists are that the new weight limit is 230lbs., that every X Division Championship match will now be a triple threat match, that whichever competitor in that match ends up getting pinned …

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.…
