I do read the spoilers to see what is going on. However, now that I am covering TNA I will have to refrain from doing so. So, for future reference, I will not know what has happened prior to the television tapings. Here are some thoughts before the show. Read the rest of this entry
Almost 10 years ago, WWE bought ECW and WCW—which ended the wars officially. But on this night, January, 4th, 2010, there is a new “threat” on the block—TNA lead by the arguably the biggest star ever in wrestling—Hulk Hogan. With this big acquisition, TNA thought they were ready to compete with Raw on Monday nights. Tonight marks an era of a change in wrestling, tonight marks an era where one company could make or break their legacy, tonight marks the night where history shall be made. Join Matt and I as we take individual looks at Impact and Raw! Read the rest of this entry

- The show opens up with a well put together video package of the build up over the month. It is mostly clips of the feuds and matches; and also Hulk Hogan’s signing. There is some “epic” music playing in the background blended in Dixie Carter’s shoot motivation speech for the wrestlers on Impact. Read the rest of this entry

: After being stripped of the belts prior to Sacrifice, Team 3D are awarded the belts right back.
: Angle and Joe defeated Team 3D for the belts. Since they can’t get along and Joe scored the pinfall, he won both straps.
: Initially, Kurt Angle beat Joe for the TNA tag belts by himself and added Sting as his tag team partner when he won a four-way dance by defeating Samoa Joe, Christian Cage and AJ Styles on the 8/30/07 edition of iMPACT!.
: Consequences Creed subbed for Adam “Pacman” Jones who no-showed. On the 4/17/08 edition of iMPACT!, Kaz and Super Eric defeated Tomko and Styles for the belts in a three-way dance also including the LAX, but were stripped of the titles when Super Eric would not reveal to the world that he was in fact Eric Young.
: This was the “Deuces Wild” tournament final to crown new champions.
: This was a three-way dance including the ex-champs Jay Lethal and Consequences Creed, but it was Roode who pinned Morgan to win the tag titles.
: The IWGP tag team titles were also on the line, held by Team 3D. However, the titles are not considered unified.
: In a Full Metal Mayhem match where both the TNA world tag team titles and the IWGP tag team titles (which were then held by the British Invasion and lost during the match to Team 3D) were on the line, World Elite’s muscle Big Rob helped Doug Williams retrieve and win the TNA world tag belts for the British Invasion. This match also included the former TNA world tag team champs Booker T & Scott Steiner and Beer Money Inc.
