NWA World Champion: Jeff Jarrett (9/15/2005)
NWA World Tag Team Champions: The Naturals (4/29/2005)
TNA X-Division Champion: AJ Styles (9/11/2005)
Earlier Tonight: Raven gets handcuffed and sent out of the building by security. Poor guy!
Your hosts are Mike Tenay and Don West.
- Team Canada (w/Coach Scott D’Amore) vs. 3 Live Kru
Team Canada attacks right at the bell. Once things slow down, Roode takes over on BG. Meanwhile, Scott D’Amore puts on a headset to bug Tenay and West. Apparently Jarrett and D’Amore used their political clout to get Raven out of Universal Studios. At the top of the ramp, Kip James watches the match. Killings gets the hot tag and the match breaks down. In the ring, Konnan hits Young with the Rolling Lariat and throws both shoes at him. As Konnan goes to the floor with Roode, Killings heads back in and hits EY with the AX KICK for the win. (4:22) Big beatdown on 3LK ensues, but Kip James scares them away. Looks like trouble among the 3LK starts brewing again. Oh boy! *½
Cool introduction video to the Ultimate X match.
- Matt Bentley (w/Traci) vs. Austin Aries vs. Christopher Daniels
Who seriously picked out the Austin Aries music? It sounds like it belongs in a reality TV montage that sucks. Daniels wears his Fallen Angel collar during the match, which takes getting used to. Aries shines early with armdrags and a corkscrew slingshot splash on Daniels for two. Bentley hits a cutter/neckbreaker combo on the other two guys. Now Daniels shows off with an inverted DDT/Flatliner combination. He heads up top, but gets slammed down by the others. IED to Daniels! Cover, 1-2-NO! Bentley makes the save, but Aries headscissors him over the top rope to the floor in a crazy bump! Daniels goes for his signature split-legged moonsault press on the outside, but they both step out of the way. While Bentley and Aries return to the ring, Petey heads out to impress Traci with his pecs when Chris Sabin comes out of nowhere and jumps Petey. While they get into an exchange, Bentley dives on top of them. Aries wants to dive on them too, but Daniels is still lurking around and trips him up. ANGEL’S WINGS! Daniels picks up the win. (5:43) Another barnburner, but not quite as cool as last week although it furthers the Ultimate X angle for BFG and gives Daniels a convincing win at the same time. **½
- Abyss (w/James Mitchell) vs. Sonny Siaki
Poor Sonny Siaki. He’s been with the company since day one and they misspell his last name on the big jumbotron. No mention of him getting chair decapitated a month ago either. He also looks like he’s shaved his head and picked up an attitude. He tries chops, but Abyss hits him with one harder. Siaki delivers a headscissors though. Mitchell causes a distraction and Abyss levels him with a big boot. Big avalanche sets up the Shock Treatment, which leads to the BLACK HOLE SLAM. (2:20) Attitude or not, Siaki didn’t have a chance. ¾*
Mike Tenay is with NWA championship committee member Larry Zbyszko in the ring. No word on the Controversy in Canada, but says that Tito Ortiz will be the special enforcer for the Jarrett-Nash main event at Bound for Glory. Out comes Tito to lay down the law saying that Nash and Jarrett must respect him and must not lay on a finger on him. If they break the rules, punishment will be quick, severe, and final. That brings out Jeff Jarrett to tell Tito that if he lays a finger on him, Jeff will break his freaking neck. As for Kevin Nash, he’s just a big wannabe comedian actor. Call him an average wrestler, sure. But don’t you dare crap on his comedic abilities, Mr. Jarrett. Kevin Nash heads out, which leads to brief encounter with Jarrett. Ortiz pulls Nash off Jarrett and chokes him out. Once he lets Nash go, Jarrett puts the boots to Nash. Tito won’t allow that either and throws Jarrett over onto the ropes. Security heads out and keeps the main eventers separate while Tito stands in the middle.
After the break, Christopher Daniels meets with Shane Douglas backstage and makes the promise that he can beat any three guys from the X-Division that AJ Styles can find in just fifteen minutes. AJ Styles comes over and thinks that’s a very good idea.
- America’s Most Wanted vs. Team 3D
Devon levels Storm with a jumping shoulderblock and a legdrop to start. Tag to Ray, he whips Harris into Storm in the corner for individual avalanches from Team 3D. That cleans house as we go to commercial. AND WE’RE BACK! Brother Ray is stuck in the AMW corner. Some open hand chops help him out though. Bubba Bomb to Storm sets up the HOT TAG TO DEVON! Ray takes Harris to the floor so they can deliver the Doomsday Device to Storm. Cover, 1-2-NO! Harris makes the save, but winds up taking 3D II. Wait a sec, GAIL KIM makes her surprise appearance and low blows Brother Ray for the DQ – clearly showing her allegiance to Planet Jarrett. (8:39) While Ray is down, Devon grabs her by the hair and wants to give her a powerbomb. Hold up, Jeff Jarrett is here to save the day by bashing Devon in the head with his title belt. Ray takes the belt to the face as well. Team 3D is BUSTED WIDE OPEN! AMW gives Team 3D their own personal DEATH SENTENCES. As if that’s not enough, Jarrett KABONGS Brother Ray. The blood is pouring, but folks we are outta time! *½
NEXT WEEK: Christopher Daniels must beat three X-Division guys of AJ Styles’ choosing within fifteen minutes. Can he do it? Watch and find out!
