In a RARE instance, I do not own a copy of this PPV. Some matches I couldn’t find on YouTube, so I’ll be skipping those. Luckily, those matches I missed weren’t super interesting. Here is what you and I missed:

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.

NWA World Tag Team Champions: America’s Most Wanted (10/22/2005)
TNA X-Division Champion: AJ Styles (9/11/2005)

Why are they showing the voiceover guy in the intro? They don’t do that in movie trailers. It just takes away so much of his mystique. I mean, you don’t see James Earl Jones in Star Wars.

(taped on 9/13/11)


The current TNA champs are as follows:
World Champion: Kurt Angle (8/7/2011)
World Tag Team Champions: Mexican America (8/18/2011)
X-Division Champion: Austin Aries (9/11/2011)
Television Champion: Eric Young (5/26/2011)
Knockouts Champion: Winter (9/11/2011)
Knockouts Tag Team Champions: Brooke Tessmacher & Tara (7/21/2011)

It’s still TNA iMPACT! to me, folks. This will be the only TNA review from 2011 that I will do, so don’t get excited, you one TNA fan there. Unless they do Sting v. Flair XXXVII! That will be the one to finally settle the score!

Now you’re probably asking yourself, “Matt, why are you doing this to yourself? You should maybe talk with my therapist. He’s really good.” Well, as a long-time fan of the Stinger and the NATCHA BOY, I thought I would recap this show just for the sake of me feeling a little complete in seeing nearly every televised match they have had with each other over the past 20-something years, which leads me to another recap coming soon of the COMPLETE Sting v. Flair collection. It’s just the one-on-one stuff, people. Let’s be realistic. But you read that correctly. It is coming soon. And I’m not doing it because their matches are really any different from each other, but just because I’m such a mark for those guys. Apparently, so are the people in TNA because this match – if we are all honest with ourselves – should not be happening on cable TV in 2011.

Your hosts are a 57 year-old wrestling nerd and his wingman: the brown gnome who wears extremely dark sunglasses indoors as if IMPACT WRESTLING’s pyro included atomic bomb testing. Read the rest of this entry
