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 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 4-4-13: 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 …
