TNA Impact Wrestling 08/19/15 – EC3 vs. PJ Black for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Anderson vs. Bram, Kim vs. Marti and Jade, Galloway vs. Drake, plus GFW Continues to be a Presence, and more!

TNA is coming off the heels of a Global Force Wrestling appearance last week, thanks to Jeff Jarrett running the show.  A video package opens up the program, recapping the events of last week, including PJ Black winning the King of the Mountain title and earning a shot against EC3 for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship later tonight.

It’s the Turning Point edition of Impact tonight.  Our show begins proper with Jeff and Karen Jarrett heading to the ring.  Jeff wants to talk about last week’s show – says that Global Force Wrestling has woken up the wrestling world, and says everything that’s been happening is exactly what Global Force needs.  So, he wants to keep the buzz going.  Tonight, he makes history – for the first time ever a GFW athlete challenges the TNA Champion.  PJ Black vs. EC3 for the title, later tonight.  Before Jarrett can continue, EC3 comes out to interrupt.

TNA Impact Wrestling 08/12/15 – Jeff Jarrett Runs the Show, GFW vs. TNA, plus more!

Tonight’s TNA Impact is an interesting one, as Jeff Jarrett takes over as the enforcer.  He brings with him members of the Global Force Wrestling roster.  It’s GFW vs. TNA… on TNA Impact!

Jeff and Karen Jarrett start the show, heading to the ring, Jeff holding the TNA King of the Mountain Championship.  Jeff talks about the famous phonecall from TNA management about the Hall of Fame and the match to the pay-per-view leading all into this moment.  There’s a strange edit of a crowd cheering here too, which came off clunky.  Anyhow, Jarrett says his TNA career is complete and it is over.  He talks about Global Force Wrestling, the company he has founded.  He calls it a promotion about competing at the highest level.  Jarrett talks about sports rivalries (Yankees/Red Sox, etc).  Tonight he’s creating a new rivalry.  He talks about last week, when he asked Dixie to bring GFW in and make some matches.

TNA Impact Wrestling 08/05/15 – EC3 vs. Matt Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Rockstar Spud vs. Austin Aries, Galloway vs. Drake, Bram vs. Anderson, plus more!

TNA is presenting to us their No Surrender of TNA Impact, which is jam-packed with feud-ending matches and stipulations.  On paper, it looks like a good night of action.  Can TNA turn around the restlessness they’ve had in the past few episodes, or will they continue to tread water?

The show opens with a very brief tribute to Rowdy Roddy Piper, who spent some time with TNA.

Bram vs. Mr. Anderson

TNA Impact Wrestling 07/15/15 – Meet the New Boss, plus X-Division Title Match, Knockouts Title Match, World Title Match, and more!

You’ll have to excuse me for keeping this brief.

Last week’s TNA Impact was a mess of epic proportions, and aside from boring me to tears, it over-exposed the new champion.  This week was different, but I don’t know if it was necessarily better.

TNA Impact Wrestling 05/08/15 – Live Episode, Featuring Angle vs. Young for the TNA Heavyweight Championship, Kong & Kim vs. Dollhouse, EC3 vs. Anderson, plus more!

It’s time for a LIVE episode of TNA Impact Wrestling!  It’s been a long while since we’ve gone live for Impact, and they’re in Orlando, Florida.  Lots of big matches on the card tonight too, including Eric Young vs. Kurt Angle for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, plus Gail Kim and Awesome Kong teaming up to take on The Dollhouse.  Also, EC3 will face Mr. Anderson in a yet-to-be-named match.  Is it an arm wrestling match?  Or a Falls Count Anywhere Match?  The fans decide!

We go straight to the arena, with Eric Young in the middle of the ring, mic in hand.  He’s demanding to know who the special guest referee is for his match against Angle later tonight.  He says he’s been the number one contender for weeks, and he deserves to know.  He’s going to beat Kurt Angle, and… well he’s cut off by Bully Ray!

Ray makes his return to the Impact zone, and he’s wearing a referee shirt under his leather vest.  A “Welcome Back” chant breaks out.  He asks Young “Do you know who I am?”  He makes it official: he’s the guest referee.

A video package introduces the major feuds and matches for the night, then goes to Josh Mathews, who is flying solo tonight.
