Things That Need To/Should Happen In ROH In 2014

roh wrestling 

The year 2014 has officially begun. With that being said, here are some things that I think need to, or at least should, happen in ROH in 2014.

 

Remove Steve Corino from Commentary

 

The one current heel commentator in ROH is Steve Corino. Now, while I do not find him as unbearable as the other current heel commentators from the other two respective wrestling companies (John “Bradshaw” Layfield in WWE and Taz and Michael Titus in TNA), he still tends to antagonize his fellow commentators, the faces, and the fans of ROH, defend and sympathize with his fellow heels’ dastardly ways, spew propaganda, and be hypocritical like the other heel commentators from the other two wrestling companies. ROH not only needs to remove Corino from commentary, but also not put any more heels on commentary afterwards. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the fans of ROH have to put up with enough other garbage from the heels.

 

Get the Women of Honor More Involved

 

One thing that I have noticed about ROH is that they do not have the Women of Honor competing in that many matches. ROH should not only have more matches between …

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 …

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 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 …

Impact Wrestling 3-7-13 Review

On the final edition of Impact Wrestling from the Impact Zone in Orlando, Florida, Kurt Angle intended to reveal the identity of the VP of Aces & Eights; however, before he could, he got into a brawl with Aces & Eights member Wes Brisco. TNA Agents Al Snow, Pat Kenney, and D’Lo Brown came out to try and separate the two. During the melee, D’Lo Brown shocked the TNA Fans when he low blowed Kurt Angle. Afterwards, D’Lo revealed himself as the VP of Aces & Eights, thus turning heel (bad guy) in the process. Also on the show, there were three Lethal Lockdown Advantage matches between members of both Team TNA and Aces & Eights. The first match was between the two respective team captains in TNA Hall of Famer Sting and TNA Television Champion Devon in a non-title match. Thanks to outside interference from a fan (for reasons unknown) Devon was able to get the victory to get a 1-0 lead for Aces & Eights over Team TNA. The next match was between Team TNA’s Samoa Joe & Magnus against Aces & Eights’ D.O.C. & Garett Bischoff with Joe & Magnus getting the victory and tying with Aces …

Impact Wrestling 2-28-13 Review

General Manager Hulk Hogan was absent from the show this week due to the attack from Aces & Eights the previous week and was at home recovering from his surgery. Also, both teams for the Lethal Lockdown Match at Lockdown are set. The Aces & Eights team consist of Team Captain and TNA Television Champion Devon, D.O.C., Mr. Anderson, Mike Knox, and Garett Bischoff. Team TNA consists of Team Captain and TNA Hall of Famer Sting, Samoa Joe, James Storm, Magnus, and Eric Young. Two more matches for Lockdown were also announced; TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Velvet Sky will defend her championship against Gail Kim and TNA World Tag Team Champions Bobby Roode and Austin Aries will defend their championships against Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez. Also, Kenny King defeated Rob Van Dam to become the new X Division Champion. 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 …

No More Heel Commentators

A commentator’s job is to provide energy and excitement for the fans so they can
enjoy the show. It is also a commentator’s job to provide the fans with news
updates and facts about the sport and its athletes. These are the types of
things commentators are supposed to be doing. Fortunately, there have been, and
still are today, commentators like that. However, there have been, and still
are today, commentators that are doing things that are the opposite of the
fans’ enjoyment and excitement. These commentators are antagonizing, sniveling;
they argue with, as well as taunt, their broadcast partners, they taunt the
wrestlers, they taunt the fans, they make up stories in an attempt to make the
heels seem like good guys and the faces seem like bad guys, they rant off while
there’s a match going on, they cut their broadcast partners off while they’re
trying to say something, among other things. Basically, they’re trying to make
the entire show all about themselves. These types of commentators disrupt the
show and don’t make it exciting and enjoyable for the fans at all. Current heel
commentators include JBL in WWE, Taz in TNA, Michael Titus in TNA’s
developmental Territory …
