Impact Wrestling 6-6-13: Who Was Brooke Hogan Trying to Save?

On this edition of Impact Wrestling, there were two Bound For Glory Series Qualifying Matches. The first match was between tag team partners Chavo Guerrero, Jr. and Shawn Hernandez with Hernandez coming out on top and earning the right to qualify. After the match, although Chavo seemed to show some frustration, he and Hernandez embraced in a display of sportsmanship. The second qualifying match was between Samoa Joe and Robbie E with Joe coming out on top and earning the right to qualify. Also, backstage, Velvet Sky and TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Mickie James had an encounter. Mickie came up with an excuse for not coming to Velvet’s aid the previous week on Impact Wrestling, as well as an excuse not to grant Velvet her rematch for the championship. After seeing all of that transpire, there is no doubt in my mind that Mickie has turned heel. She proved that even more in her match she had later on with fellow heel Taeler Hendrix when Mickie feigned a knee injury to get the victory. I am, quite frankly, shocked that Mickie would turn her back on her fans. Also, it was the TNA debut of current MMA fighter and TNA’s …

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 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. Olivencia and Terry ended up being victorious.…

It was also the return of TNA Gut Check. The two gut checkers for this week were Ivelisse Velez and Lei’d Tapa, who is the niece of wrestling legend The Barbarian. Ivelisse Velez got the victory, but was it enough to impress the Gut Check Judges enough for an opportunity to earn a TNA contract. Only one of these women will …
