TNA: iMPACT!
November 3, 2005
Orlando, FL
Universal Studios

The current NWA & TNA Champs were as follows:
NWA World Champion: Rhino (10/23/2005)
NWA World Tag Team Champions: America’s Most Wanted (10/22/2005)
TNA X-Division Champion: AJ Styles (9/11/2005)

This is the first two-hour primetime (baby!) special on Spike TV for TNA. Today, it’s commonplace, but not back then when iMPACT! was only one hour a week.

AWESOME video package to start things. They show some cool moves from the past, some familiar faces that wrestling fans may have missed, and an overall feeling of testosterone-filled intensity. I’m loving it already. Even with the Don West voiceovers!

Your hosts are Mike Tenay and Don West.

ECW: Hardcore TV (Best of Fall of 1995)

ECW: Hardcore TV
The Best from the FALL of 1995

There is a TON going on in ECW in October and November 1995. Here is just a sample of what is happening. Since Gangsta’s Paradise, Raven and Stevie Richards regain the ECW tag belts, and then lose them in a three-way dance to Public Enemy. The Sandman loses the ECW world title to the unlikely hero Mikey Whipwreck. Plus, STEVE AUSTIN. Not that he’s really wrestling all that much. He’s just cutting some of the best promos of his career.
