ROH: Night of Champions (03.03)

ROH: Night of Champions
Philadelphia, PA
3/22/2003

From a promo sent by Steve Corino while he was backstage taking a shower after a Zero-One show in Japan dated from back at the last ROH show a week earlier, he says he’s got two words for Christopher Daniels – dare me.

Meanwhile back in Philadelphia, Jody Fleisch decides not to party with Mikey Whipwreck and the Special K tonight because he’s got his big match with Low-Ki. Whipwreck demands some rock n roll from the DJ and the Special K boys cover their ears. It’s harshing their mellow!

Interview with the Prophecy: Christopher Daniels says if Doug Williams can beat him for the FWA title, then he can start shaking hands again in ROH. Xavier tells Joe that he can’t beat him because Joe couldn’t beat Low-Ki, which Xavier could in order to win the ROH title. Tonight, Joe’s just going to be X’ed out like everybody before him. Oh yeah, and they are ready for Steve Corino. Off the mic but not really, Daniels tries to talk Xavier out of defending the belt against Joe, putting him over as the hardest hitting guy he’s ever faced.

Your hosts are Ray Murrow and Chris Lovey.

Best of TNA X-Division Matches – Disc One (2003)

TNA – Best of the X-Division Matches Disc One
Released: 2003

This was actually the very first DVD to be released by TNA, which should show you what the company’s main focus was originally. It starts out with a two-minute long intro set to System of a Down-type music with various highlights from the first year of TNA. It’s not as epic as the video packages we see during the monthly PPV days, but it gets its point across.

Your hosts are Mike Tenay and Don West. Read the rest of this entry
