The Jobber Blogger #131-TNA:IMPACT WRESTLING-22/10/14

The Jobber Blogger

It’s bad when writing TNA Wrestling as The Jobber Blogger starts to remind me of work… that’s bad right? 131! pfft! It’s not even worth the reference!

It appears that time has drifted on a little from when I started to Write this. Ahh, I’m a wonderfully strange individual. I revel in my weirdness.

So, it appears that people are happy with the current product TNA is putting out. I would like to say that I am also happy with it, they are putting on good television. However, it being taped still taints my impressions.

bootcampWho watched British Bootcamp 2 – Episode 1?

I won’t give it a full write up, but I quite liked it. Last year’s original show was a little too scripted for my liking. It didn’t feel real enough, despite their best efforts.

This time around it’s better, though still a bit odd. It’s like Wrestling meets X-Factor, only they judging panel of Samoa Joe, Gail Kim and Al Snow can pretty much make the contestants to jumping jacks and speak in different languages. OR ELSE!

The “reality” side of the show actually feels more real, so that is a bigger bonus, plus having Spud as a host, Joe, Gail and Snow as judges and also participating, gives the show that much needed credibility edge.

I won’t pretend like I remembered everyone’s name, but the one who stood out to me the most was the Red headed girl. I suppose her hair was rather striking and I have thing for Red Hair.

But I digress.

Nikki Storm (needs a name change), I liked her attitude, and also hated her attitude. It works for a persona, not for a person. Norm, or whatever he was called was easily the top guy there, so glad he’s going through. But I was most impressed with the Red Headed girl, I thought she carried herself well in the ring, perhaps more “shy” than the other two, but I was most impressed with what we saw of her in-ring work than anyone else. So I am glad she’s there. Plus awesome that so far the women are dominating.

I like that.

TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 22/10/14

Oh how wonderful life is, when your favourite Wrestling show kicks off with Matt Hardy.

For those who have been reading this long enough might well remember my little rants about a Wee Young Jobber Blogger who would rush downstairs on Saturday mornings at 10am to catch WWF Smackdown on Sky1, in all of it’s edited for morning television glory.

What felt like every week was Smackdown kicking off with the Hardyz, and I loved it. So to have Matt still sticking around in TNA in 2014 and kicking off Impact with a Tag-Team Tournament with both himself and Jeff. Yup, I’m one happy fan!

The Hardyz vs. DJZ and Jesse

It is a little odd having DJZ and Jesse together without Robbie E. I can see DJZ actually fitting this role of a Broman better without either Robbie E and Jesse and finding someone more “hip” styled rather than Jersey styled.

Jesse works best with Robbie, and actually I think Robbie is awesome on his own.

Little by little, DJZ is creeping up on my favourites list, I’m still not entirely there, but I’m getting there. A huge, vast improvement from the days of Zema Ion with silly hair and hair spray with ridiculous attire. He suits this much better.

The Tag-Teams dominated this week’s Impact, and I have no problem with that. Though I do get a little sick of throw together story developing Tag-Team matches, I love Tag-Team matches with actual Tag-Teams.

So a tournament is right up my alley, and having The Hardyz kick it off with a Win. It’s like going back in time. What a wonderful thing nostalgia is right?

Blind Tag – Twist of Fate – Swanton Bomb – Hardyz pick up the win.

Low Ki and Samoa Joe vs. Samuel Shaw and Gunner

Speaking of throw together tag-team matches purely to further Story development. We got this match.

I’m unsure of where to stand on it. Like all kinds of on air friendships in Wrestling, they must BY LAW end up turning on each other with a video package stating how close they once were.

RoodeEyBrothers

The interesting dynamic here is Brittany, and more to the point the pairing of Shaw and Brittany, I like that idea.

Clearly Shaw was going to turn on Gunner, it just seemed to happen a little too sudden. A tiny backstage segment between Shaw and Brittany, which was the first we’ve actually seen them together in as any kind of friends.

I suppose this will evolve out into Anderson getting back involved maybe. Who knows.

Brittany grabbed Gunner’s leg who then fell victim to a kick from Low Ki right back into the clutches of Samoa Joe for the choke victory.

Then Shaw went to town on Gunner with a chair.

That right there is the money shot, I’ve never seen that side of Shaw or perhaps anyone sell beating down a guy with a chair as sadistically and deranged like Shaw did to Gunner.

I liked it a lot.

And then the unnecessary make-out rolling around the ring between Shaw and Brittany. Least they literally rolled over Gunner, which made that worth watching from an entertainment perspective.

blueline

Rebel was set to do battle with someone. I don’t remember. Did we even know? Could it have been Madison?

Havok then decided to come out and beat up Rebel. You know, taking out the threats. Like Rebel.

Yes, that is a joke.

HAHA!

Was there really anything to get? I’m not sure, it’s getting late.

Gail Kim then made her return with an injured arm, her own arm that was injured, of course. She didn’t just turn up with some severed arm. That would have been most unexpected.

gail arm

Gail took the fight to Havok and then the TNA guys in the back (and Earl Hebner) had to rush out to break up this fight. How many times have we seen this? I thought the days of security breaking up fights were over, but it appears not.

I suddenly miss D’Lo.

Also why is Earl Hebner always there? He never actually breaks up the fight, he just walks back and forth observing.

blueline

Bram vs. Devon – Hardcore Match

This was scheduled earlier on in the night, but it didn’t go according to plan. Nope guess what, they had a brawl, and the TNA security (and Earl Hebner) ran out to break it up… and pace back and forth…. respectively.

Kurt booked the match, and here we have it. Bram trying to make a name for himself by picking on Hardcore Hall of Famers, now that sounds like a Reality Show waiting to happen… although it might not be about what we would hope… or maybe it is. Maybe the viewer would be the one disappointment.

tnahalloffame

All of this is to continue to build on the foundations of Bram’s success against Abyss, making him a big star, and also the contrast that places between Bram and Magnus… despite the physical contrast.

bramandmagnus

In the end it was in fact Magnus who got involved and attacked Devon from outside the ring which led to Bram picking up the victory. I’m sure this will become “I didn’t need your help to win” territory in no time, and of course right on time for the “They were once like Brothers!” Video package and inevitable grudge match.

Mr. Anderson and Chris Melendez vs. MVP and Kenny King

It does amuse me at how little of a beating guys get in a Tag-Team match to make them need to tag out in no time, yet in a singles match, that’s just a scratch.

Anderson was beaten down and controlled though-out the majority of the match, but finally got the Tag to “Sarge”.

See, Melendez is very impressive, I get it. I think he seemed a bit better this week. But he can pull off some amazing sights given his condition, it’s awesome. But then, it’s also given his condition, which makes it a weird kind of territory to be in.

Thankfully the right team won as King had a sneaky roll up with trunks for the Win.

Right after the match however The Wolves did one of the worst “fake” promos I’ve ever seen followed by James Storm doing one of the worst promo’s I’ve ever seen by trying to convince Davey Richards to join his revolution.

I’m sure nothing will come of Storm’s strange medusa prowess on Richards, but say if it did…. it’s only a matter of time before issues between The Wolves began to surface. Then they’d be forced to run the “They Were Once Like Brothers!” Video Package and inevitable grudge match.

Yay for Tag-Teams! gunnerandshawandanderson

Shame this dream will never come true =(

Ethan Carter the Third and Tyrus vs. Eric Young and Rockstar Spud

EC3 laid out the challenge earlier on in the night to Spud, but it was EC3 who did his best to get Spud fired up for this match.

Spud had his old music again, which was pretty awesome, it’s a cool theme. Only now it meets with his Chief of Staff intro.

It appears as though Spud is now full throttle Face.. another good T-shirt idea.

A new movement of “I’m With Spud”, which isn’t quite how a movement works.

I was under the impression that a movement was something that naturally got started. Now Spud has been gaining a following, but TNA put out the “I’m With Spud” T-shirt quite a while ago. Yes people cheer for him, and yes he’s being turned Face, but that doesn’t make it a movement. The fact your telling me it’s a Movement, which also happens to coincide with the merchandise your trying to sell, makes me think it’s not a Movement at all and your trying to market it to me.

Tyrus pulled out a “Heart Punch” which incidentally was made famous from old school Pro Wrestler – Ox Baker.

I won’t pretend like I knew that before watching this match, but it turns old Ox ol’Pal was in Escape from New York – which just happens to be one of my favourite movies of all time! So big kudos, much respect and RIP!

Spud did an awesome Flip from the Top Rope, then lost the match by being Chokeslammed by Tyrus.

Looking forward to seeing where Spud goes from here and I actually hope Tyrus sticks around.

blueline

TNA ended on the Contract Signing between Bobby Roode and Bobby Lashley for Match #2.

All night there was this big “surprise” which was being thrown around by TNA and Kurt backstage. Just turned out to be that Kurt has made himself the Special Guest Referee.

Which really isn’t all that exciting. Special Ref’s usually are a waste of time. However on the odd occasion having a good “authorities” figure in the ring can make for a memorable match.

I really hope Roode vs. Lashley #2 Delivers.

I’m looking forward to watching it next week.

A good solid Impact, lots of lovely Tag-Team Wrestling and a good show set up for next week!

Till then!

The Infamous Informer


20141020_LIGHT_TotalDivas_NewCast_HP_REVEAL.0.0_standard_709.0

I know this ain’t the Total Divas blog, but straight up and down, you Internet Wrestling muthaf***az have got NO BARZ for me. You know why? Now your newest favourite sweetheart – Paige has joined the cast for the second half of Season 3. Yeah keep hating. If I see Paige walking round on the show in her panties, DON’T TALK TO ME. You fat @$$£$ been trashing the show, now your girl Paige is on it… along with Alicia Fox. Don’t F**kin talk to me. I’ve been down with the show from the start… you wanna jump on the bandwagon now? F**K YOU. GA-LANG, and support your favourite batty bwoy Dolph Ziggler.

(Ga-Lang is Jamaican Patois for ‘Go Away’)

I hope he loses again this week on RAW… Drop the Hell In A Cell on em… RAW #1117! HOL’DAT – BLAOW!!!

WWF PROPA TINGZOH SNAP!!! That Hell In A Cell… it’s coming down… and Triple Teef ain’t afraid of that thing! He’s been in it, beaten the best, but failed to beat the TRUE MASTER of the cell: The Undertaker!

WORD? Street fight between Randall, Seth & Glenn Vs Cena & Ambrose? Yo this might as well be the main event for the PPV, you know that cell is coming down!

Your hear that IWC??? It’s a DOUBLE main event…that’s exactly what Triple said… so whichever goes last – it’s a main event so simply put – SHUT THE F**K UP!

Check this out… the winner of the Cena Vs Orton Hell in a Cell faces BRRROCK, LESSNAR!!! Ok I’m throwing it out there… no Get In The Chair awards necessary… Randall gonna win. Randall faces Brock, WINS… or even if he loses, he will make sure Brock gets that beating, then… Seth cashes his cheque, becomes the champion heading into Big BIG WrestleMania against the Royal Rumble winner…. I just can’t see Brock defending the title at Mania as if he did we would know that he’d lose…. considering his contract… I’m just doing the science… but I shall validate it AFTER the Hell In A Cell PPV.

STC HELL IN A CELL 2014

WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA – Where’s the Uso chant and the Pyro? Don’t tell me Brie Bella run up the WWE credit card on clothes as well? (Total Divas joke)

Justin Roberts fired last week… Who gives a monkey’s @$$? Certainly not me! We got Lillian Garcia!!! You IWC b!tches crying over Justin Roberts… who gave a f**k about him before he was fired? NO ONE. So don’t act like you care… NO YOU DON’T MUTHAF***A! Kill that noise with that fake sh!t! WWE Upgraded if you ask me!!!

GRANT BODY – P!!! SHUDDUP!!!!

BACKSIDE!!!! Damien MizDow just beat Sheamus!!! I say the Triple threat in that muthaf***a! Make it happen WWE! GODDAMNIT!

Actually you see that early WrestleMania prediction I made? SCRATCH THAT… It wasn’t thought through properly….

Uh-Oh!!!! Well at least some of it WAS thought through! Triple reveals that the Randall/Cena stipulation was Seth’s idea… UH-OH! Watch your back guys!!! He’s out to cash that cheque!

GODAMNIT can’t we get a stipulation between AJ Lee & Paige for the divas title? Goddamnit these girls have gone atSAM_3700 it since April tuh-blodclart!

WOW!!!! The crowd chanting AJ???? This is live, right? Not pre-recorded??? Finally Kansas City has understood…

OH SH!T!!!!! Alicia Fox pinned AJ???? WWE make it happen! Triple Threat this muthaf***a! Let’s be real, we have seen AJ Vs Paige almost as much as Cena Vs Orton….or maybe not!!!!

See the reason I foresee Orton Vs Rollins… is because of all these rumours about a supposed Randall face turn… all these vines of Randall RKO’in muthaf***az for fun… title or no title – I foresee it…

OH hell naw!!! This is a serious situation Cena! This is supposed to end your decade rivalry and you’re running jokes? Even The Rock had to go serious against his nemesis Triple H…. FIX UP CENA!

There you go! He got serious! And both want to fight the beast…. ARE THEY SURE??? I didn’t know Paul Heyman was here??? HAHA! I like how Heyman is cutting this promo, talking that Cena & Orton ain’t sh!t against BRRRROCCCK LESSNAR… but looks up at the cell… as if he had visions of himself getting buss arse by a certain B!ATCH!!!!

All that talking sh!t by Heyman…. Cena is such a fool – ready to drop the AA on Heyman and didn’t…. CENA YOU SOFT MUTHAF***A!

But Randall – no hesitation, Emotionless Passion, RKO to Cena – BLAOW!!!! Heyman’s laughing about it! Randall – turns to Heyman – RKO to Heyman – BLAOW!!!!! YES!!!! There’s your star of the show right there! The crowd loved that sh!t! RANDALL – YOU ARE THE F**K!N MAN – OK!!!

Rah-tid! Where did Big E come from? Yo Big E – what happened to your preaching? All that D-Von sh!t? What happened to your entrance music dude? Are they sorting out the Kick In The Door tune like I suggested?

PS3/XBox360 massive and crew! ARE YOU READY?

NO! I SAID!!! PS3/XBOX360 MASSIVE! ARE YOU REAAADDDDDYY???!!!!

OH SNAP!!! Rusev has gone too far! The russian flag was supposed to come down! Big Show switched it up! Old Glory came down instead! Rusev is furious! Come on Lana… tell me to SHUT-TUP you sexy muthaf***a! NO! Rusev was gonna pull down the flag!!! How the rarse did a troop find himself in the ring?! But he got kicked down! Rusev kick down an US troop!!! (hey – good bump!)

GRANT BODY – P!!!

Big Show is BEXXXXXX!!!! Forget the PPV – let’s do this right now Rusev! If your name bad man… go out and test the Big Show! Now you made him angry…. Oh boy oh boy…. If Show finds you – your goose cook!

I can’t believe Dean Ambrose is just chilling in his room with popcorn watching Kane’s film See No Evil 2!!!! He can’t do that – he’s gotta big match coming!

Go on Brie Bella – beat down that Summer Rae lady! How is she gonna take off with Rosa’s man like that? It’s not often I

back you Brie! BRIE MODE IZ DA SQUAD!

What the rarse has Dean Ambrose got in those bags of his? Don’t tell me it’s weapons he intends to use on Seth Rollins… if it is…. UH-OHHHHHH!!!!

He gotta screwdriver in there! And DE HAMMER??? A chainsaw??? A Power Drill? Entertaining us on how he’s gonna f**k him up in the cell!

You know why you’re not sweating the cell Rollins? Because your opponent is not THE DON OF DONS HIMSELF!

WTF??? MICK MUTHAF***!N FOLEY???!!! No one clocked on to this!!!! BACKSIDE!!! All those dirt sheets talking about Foley not down with the WWE these days! F**KOUTTAHERE!

Foley & Ambrose

He’s just saying hello to a ‘old friend’… The Cell itself! he’s basically saying to these guys – this Cell will F**K YOU UP!

F**K THAT – Make Mick Foley the special referee! MAKE IT HAPPEN WWE! We ain’t gotta blodclart champion for god’s sake!

For the first time, I think Rollins actually showed signs of worry after Foley’s motivational speech! This Cell ain’t no joke rude boy!

Big ups to Jay-Bee for acknowledging the dude – Ox Baker who died recently…. Live on Live Long….right IWC B!tches – you got no bars now!

YES! Ziggler lose again! Cesaro caught him with the SHO-RYU-KEN!!!! got the 3, and hit the Neutralizer – BLAOW!!! Everytime Ziggler gets f**ked up, it brings joy to my heart!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

WOW!!! I wasn’t feeling this ‘Hell In A Cell by the numbers….’ but my god they went IN on that statistics video! I gotta commend WWE for building this up despite the lukewarm card they have put together,… and why have I got this feeling that the Wyatt mans are gonna appear at the PPV? Their disturbing, Lionsgate like promos are f**ked up as they come!

CENA & AMBROSE! GLENN, SETH AND RANDALL!!! THIS IS A STREET FIGHT! HERE WE GO!!!

Why is Cena waiting on the apron for a tag? Kill that noise! It’s a Street Fight – NO RULES! Get in there Cena and KILL!!!

Very good Cena you use the 5 moves of doom… now you draw for the steel chair! and the tables!

Oh dear! Cena & Ambrose not doing too well! Glenn is killin em! Now the cell is coming down! It’s worries for them now! It’s all out Ruckus up in this b!tch! This is as good as an Armageddon Hell In A Cell!!!

So hang on… Ambrose’s Dirty Deeds super move is now a double arm DDT? BACKFOOT! Shades of Mick Foley himself!

The Authority win! but switch – Seth Rollins with the curb stomp to Randall – BLAOW!!! You see? The ‘face turn’ of Orton is a slow one…

Ok now I gotta get behind the cameras, behind the airwaves and discuss this in detail with my STC brethren!!!

The Jobber Blogger #130 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 15/10/14

Jobber-Blogger

The Jobber Blogger

Are you proud of me? I would be, also I am be. And I am also me. It all makes sense like Lion King and the Circle of Life. Only it means reduction. Which wasn’t really mentioned all that much in the film itself, though I do remember a McDonalds toy that left little to the imagination.

lion king wrongI guess that’s more borderline bestiality than it is the Circle of Life.

Well what a way to start off issue #130 – no doubt shattering some dreams and hearts and eyes of the two people that appear to be reading this every week… or at least viewing the posts and liking them. Then not reading.

Does anyone read this?

Yes, I know you do Linda, hell I don’t re-read my ramblings anymore, look at that < spelling error.

I don’t know if there is one, I didn’t check, I just played it safe and assumed.

blueline

It appears that I’ve lost my way already, that’s pretty good for a opening Paragraph / Segment isn’t it. Shows signs of things to come. I was going to say, Are you Proud of me?

It’s Friday, creeping up to 8pm and I’m writing the Jobber Blogger! Yes folks, I’m caught up and up to date!

Which is saying something given it’s crazy Writing week when the PPV’s hit, pretty much Watch Wrestling / Write Wrestling / Watch Wrestling / Write Wrestling / Watch Wrestling / Write Wrestling then I’m back on schedule.

So how was Impact after / before Bound for Glory? I’ll tell you how it was! Because that’s what I’ve chosen to do, whether you like it or not, whether you agree or not, whether you even read it or not, I will do it! This is The Jobber Blogger and I vow to do stuff!

TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 15/10/14

I know how frustrating it may be on the days I don’t get my Jobber Blogger Blog posts Jobbering it up on a Sunday night to follow the UK Airing of Impact on Challenge. I feel your frustration, it keeps me up at night, and sometimes Linda sends me hate mail.

(You’re being featured a lot this week Linda 😉 be proud!)

Currently I’m trying to get Minecraft on my PS Vita and it’s all gone to hell! Not that I expected it to just “work” though in the back of my mind I thought “I bet this will just work, despite the fact I’m expecting it not to”.

Long story short, it doesn’t work, I own the PS3 Retail Version, supposed to recognise my save and allow Cross-Buy, BUT IT DOESN’T WORK! Now I can’t even throw money at the problem and buy it, the whole worlds gone to the poop when you can’t get things for Money! If I can’t get things for Money, why do I work! Tell me that!

blueline

You’ll be pleased to know that Impact was pretty awesome this week! I was impressed and entertained. I’d like to clarify that Bound for Glory was a really good show, I might have blurted out some more “negative” feedback of the show, it was a good show. Didn’t live up to the name of “Bound for Glory”, but that was probably more to do with the fact that it didn’t have over half of the TNA talent I want to watch on a TNA show on the PPV. No grudge matches, no decent talent, no Championship belts. It was a TNA – One Night Only – vs. Wrestle1 show.

Nothing wrong with that. Just nothing “Glorious” about it either.

blueline

Kurt Angle kicked off Impact with a whole segment to build up the Main Event the advertised last week with an announcement from Kurt Angle and a Video Package and a Mention.

So awesome to start the show by telling us what you already told us. If Sean O’ Haire were still alive, he’d be Senton’ing in his grave.

Big ups Sean O’ Haire, I am a fan. Also “I’m not going to tell you what you already know”. It was his catch phrase with the re-branded Spider Web look and awesome Entrance Music. It took place before his firing.

So… there you have it.

seano

Kurt called out Lashley, which I still kind of forget he’s the Champ, Lashley has been a good Champ though, for the times I remembered it. The second Impact kicked off it felt like TNA again, and I like Lashley a lot in the Title Picture.

Kurt seemed rather miffed that Lashley declined Roode’s Challenge for another shot at the World Championship.

Shall I go into why this annoys me? I shall!

Kurt claimed that being the World Heavyweight Champion means he needs to defend the belt whenever and wherever. Never heard of that before, it’s not his duty.

More to the point Kurt was annoyed at MVP last week for the “mess” he made and how dare he book his own matches, he’s not in charge. Despite the fact Kurt didn’t stop any of it. Now he’s annoyed at Lashley for getting involved in the Match Kurt didn’t want to take place in the first place with a stipulation he didn’t agree with, agree to, nor want to happen.

Yup, I have no idea why he was annoyed, aside from the fact that the Script says as much.

Further to the point, surely Bobby Roode who earned a shot AND LOST does not deserve to get a re-match on the basis that “I was pretty good before I lost” I don’t remember that being a “I’ve earned this” way of life.

And the final point, Surely Roode asking for another shot should annoy Kurt just as much as MVP making a match did, because Roode would have done the exact same thing. Only he would have done it with the World Championship on the line, despite the fact he already had his opportunity and Lost!

End of. Kurt makes no sense.

I’m not really that bothered, but please, just pay attention to what you Write. This is like Star Trek getting their Delorean stuck in a Worm Hole where Johnny Five accidently clicked on Quantum Leap.

startreknonsense

It Just Don’t Make Sense!

Madison Rayne vs. Havok – Knockouts Championship

Madison is drifting on down the Heel lake once more, but this time it’s a “why wouldn’t I have done that?” rather than just being a full blown Heel. She’s the Heel people don’t like because she did the smart thing rather than the Honourable thing.

But as she said, every Knockout for herself, why would she risk injury at the hands of Havok before her Championship match to save Taryn from taking a bump. Not worth it.

Also props to Madison, I like her new Entrance, with her head down then bringing the Camera Man to go behind her and follow her down the ramp. I like that. Very cinematic.

Now I had quite the rant about Velvet putting up a good fight against Havok at Bound for Glory, I suppose in reality, this match took place first, so Velvet could have been trying to top it. Which is fair enough.

Madison also put up quite the fight against Havok, though Havok seemed far more dominant against Madison than she did against Velvet. Which doesn’t make sense. Also for Velvet as a Heel, it makes less sense for her to be “full of heart” and the underdog. Which on the flip side, is a nice thing about Madison. She’s drifting toward being a Heel, but currently she’s still a face, so she went to battle by herself and put up a good fight, not backing down.

Though I did start to question the physical health of Earl Hebner, he’s not getting any younger…. I don’t think, I don’t know his medical history, or in fact his age.

But given he works on a general Human life scale, then he’s getting older. It seemed he dosed off during this match, or at least tried to squeeze in a sneaky Nap during a pin-count.

hebnersleep

He could have been selling a kick-out though I suppose, but I think chances are he nodded off.

I joke. I kid. I can’t write anything funny….. also I laughed a bit.

Havok lifted up Madison and dropped her with the Chokeslam for the Win.

Though actually, Havok’s Chokeslam is known as the “Harlot Slayer!”

Which sounds like a Spider-Man Villain who hunts prostitutes… I like it.

blueline

Magnus vs. Matt Hardy

This Makes Me Happy.

Yes, like most, some of, perhaps a couple of people, I was wondering on the future of Matt in TNA.

I know he’s not signed, this is more of a per-appearance deal, but now that the Tag-Title Series has wrapped, I wasn’t sure where he would go.

Then he popped up backstage in a promo where Magnus interrupted. Yup, it’s not really that relevant, “you’re not as good as your Brother” / “your jealous of your friend”, usual crap.

Again, as someone who is a life-long fan of the Hardyz, I can’t tell you how happy I am to see Matt in TNA, in a Singles Match, where he is “himself”.

I was looking forward to his first run, and we all know that didn’t turn out so well. So thank you TNA for giving him a chance to redeem himself. Matt’s a great talent, and is capable of a lot.

As someone who is a Fan of Magnus, but never really fully sold on Magnus, I am pleased to admit he seemed more like himself and also far better than I remember.

I literally had no idea what to expect when Magnus lifted Matt into the Power-bomb position, I thought Matt would probably do the usual punch to the face, land on his feet type of ordeal. Then I thought Magnus would just ram him back first into the Turnbuckle.

I did not expect Magnus to ram him into the Turnbuckle then actually Power-Bomb Matt onto the Ring Apron.

I don’t recall seeing that, and it looked nasty. – Nasty and cool.

The match came to an end when Matt caught Magnus’ mid dive from the Second Rope with a Twist of Fate.

The crowd seemed to have a mixed reaction to Matt’s move, I suppose it’s a fairly common thing to see now, specially that the traditional Cutter has come into play a lot recently by a lot of guys. Also I miss Matt taking his time with the Twist of Fate, seems to be more rushed, I liked the Taunt and Scream before the move.

Still, Matt’s in TNA and I love it! Hardyz vs. Bram and Magnus?

blueline

DJZ, Jesse and Angelina Love (w/ Velvet Sky) vs. Knux, Crazy Steve and Rebel

I am very happy that DJZ has the current look he does, it’s a big improvement of where he used to be pre-Bromans.

However I miss the DJ deck and annoying horn. I loved that during matches! Do more of it! All the time!

That makes sense right?

Not sure on the partnership of the Bromans and The Beautiful People. Bro’s meet Rock chicks, doesn’t seem to match.

Don’t hate it though.

Above all else, this match is best for one reason, Crazy Steve. It seems TNA are impressed with his popularity because he’s being used more and more, not only that, but rather than the being the crazy guy who doesn’t fight a lot, even lost his matches because he’s out of control and the first person to be eliminated from other bouts.

He put on a great outing in this match and displayed how much of a Credible wrestler he is without breaking or losing any aspect of his Character.

Also he won the match. Good things seem to be in his future, I think he’s got a Gimmick that can last, and transform when required.

Zema kept patting Rebel’s “rear” till Knux took him out, Steve going in for the kiss on Angelina, when Jesse broke it up with a press slam. Steve landed on his feet, jumped to the Second Rope, hit a Tornado DDT for the win.

Tyrus vs. Shark Boy

You know, I think I preferred the wrong thing out of this match.

I can say that I was not expecting “Tyrus” – Brodus Clay to be EC3’s new Bodyguard. Also, surely Rocktsar Spud was not “employed” to be EC3’s Bodyguard. Just saying.

Still a very good and pleasant surprise, no idea if he’s sticking around in TNA, or if he’s doing a Gene Snitsky.

I could also mention Big E, but “doing a Gene Snitsky” is far funnier as a saying. That should be used… Taz you listening?

Everyone Tweet that at Taz!

Either way, whether he sticks around or not, they will eventually end up fighting, it just happens, even if I don’t want it to.

TNA – Breaking the mould.

EC3 had a big old Rant about being undefeated and how he’s defeated every TNA Hall of Famer. Devon stepped up then got attacked by Bram. Which is far more interesting than having EC3 fight Devon.

So in the end, EC3 revealed he had booked Tyrus a match against TNA Legend Shark Boy.

I’ve never been a huge Shark Boy fan, but the more I think about his gimmick, the more I like it. Now having him miss his entrance and run a video backstage where they find him out of shape on a sofa stuffing Doughnuts into his Mask, I love it!

Hence what I mean, I think I was more impressed and intrigued by Shark Boy’s decent into physics defying obesity than I was the debut of Tyrus.

…… Tyrus won.

Eric Young vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries vs. Bobby Roode – Four Way Elimination #1 Number One Contender Match – World Heavyweight Championship

Now anyone who knows me and reads this, knows I love any kind of Elimination Match. I Love em!

So I was happy.

Here is something I wasn’t expecting, I really miss Jeff Hardy being in the Main Events. Now again, big Hardy fan, but I can see why he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. I never disliked him as Champ, just you know, went a long with it. However now, after a good period of him not being in the Main Events as a main stay, I miss it.

I’ve always said Bobby Roode is the best World Heavyweight Champion of recent memory, least my favourite.

I don’t know if I’m ready for this Roode to be Champion. I enjoyed Heel Roode. I always enjoy Heel Wrestlers more, they tend to have longer Championship reigns. I feel a Heel can be a main stay, without really needing to do anything. You never “need” to turn them Face, only because your good guys are thinning out or to do something different. Heel’s tend to gain momentum on the card and with the fans. Faces decrease, and usually decrease quickly.

Currently should Roode be the Champ again, in my mind I see a good few Months run, till he ends up going against James Storm and his Revolution, where pay-back is a (you know what) and Storm gets the proper Title Run he deserves as the top heel on the show.

All four of these guys put on a great main event, timing was slightly off as EY and Hardy were setting up for simultaneous “Moonsault’s and Swanton’s” a good Album title incidentally.

moonsaultsandswantons

EY missed with the Moonsault, Jeff missed with the Swanton then both were dropped with the Roode Bomb and Brain Buster respectively then eliminated.

Roode and Aries tore it down as you’d expect, in the end Roode caught Aries from his Corner Drop-Kick and delivered a Roode Bomb to pick up the win.

All four of them then stood in the ring displaying mutual respect.

I still find it funny that Angle chose the Four Guys who Lost against Lashley, to then challenge him again.

You’d think someone else would have a shot, who perhaps hasn’t been defeated already. Not arguing. Just stating.

blueline

Good show, looking forward to Next Week’s Impact, also the Wolves announced a 8-Team Tag-Tournament to find their next challenges. Seems like a long process, but looking forward to that too!

Till then!

The Jobber Blogger #129 – TNA: BOUND FOR GLORY – 12/10/14

Jobber Blogger logo RED

Well, TNA: Bound for Glory 2014 has been and gone, with very little,… anything, really. No press, no big surprises, no excitement, it just happened.

Bound for Glory is TNA’s biggest Show of the entire Year, now Normally the Bound for Glory Series would have kept us all entertained with Bobby Roode becoming the Second ever Winner of the Series and going on to face Bobby Lashley in the Main Event of Bound for Glory for the World Heavyweight Championship from Tokyo Japan.

Team 3D, The Hardyz and The Wolves would compete for the TNA World Tag-Team Championships in Full Metal Mayhem. James Storm and The Great Sanada would battle The Great Muta and Tajiri. All kinds of awesome things could have happened, but as it turned out, didn’t.

Which left Bound for Glory rather…. different.

TNA: BOUND FOR GLORY – 12/10/14

I honestly don’t know how I feel about the show, it was cool to be in Japan, it was cool to have the Wrestle 1 vs. TNA, but it wasn’t by any means Bound for Glory. It didn’t and couldn’t ever compete with Slammiversary, which got huge Press and Praise across the Industry, no this was TNA doing a good solid Wrestling show from Japan, that had nothing to do with TNA, which therefore means the Moniker of Bound for Glory – the magnitude of their biggest show of the year, was lost in the Land of the Rising Sun.

redline

Manik vs. Minoru Tanaka

(^^^ look at that, I’m colour themed!….. with a u!)

I’d say the biggest thing I was anticipating for Bound for Glory was to see how the Japanese crowd would react. Given what I knew previously and then what Taz and Tenay stated over Commentary, the Crowd seemed to be rather Americanised and therefore contradicted most of the traits you would expect.

Now I understand that you have to “Prove” yourself to the Japanese crowd, which as it happens, wasn’t so much the case. They preferred the TNA guys over their own home Talent, which hey, I understand. You watch the show every week, why wouldn’t you be excited to see them?

I didn’t expect Manik to be as over as he was, but the longer this match went on, the more the fans rallied behind him, which was cool to see.

Manik is a special kind of Wrestler, very talented, I know there was a lot of talk about TJ and being behind the Mask of Suicide whom has been a reoccurring face in TNA over the years with numerous people behind the mask. TJ’s has made him into his own, the re-brand of Manik helped, but re-packaging Manik to be a bit more “trendy” is no bad thing either. He certainly looks younger, but also looks far less menacing.

The Gimmicks aside, TNA have done right by letting TJ Perkins have a platform to perform on, he is a very talented guy, and this opening match with Tanaka is arguably the best on the show.

During the show there were numerous Japanese Wrestlers who stood out to me as a Fan, but Minoru’s talent easily puts him up at the top, not to mention the pairing between he and Manik was a perfect fit.

The idea of having Tanaka against Austin Aries – excites me.

The downside to this match however is that it was “so good” it set the bar higher than the rest of the card. Which is awesome if your Manik and Tanaka, not so much if your anyone else.

A whole bunch of must see action and moments and kick outs and great fast paced Wrestling that ended with Tanaka locking on a Flying Arm-Bar to gain a Tap-out Victory, put an end to the match.

I’m happy to put this up for Match of the Year Nomination. Yes, I seem to be throwing those out there now. Everyone gets one.

 

Also after getting half way through this Jobber Blogger, I remembered about the lovely predictions I made!

bfgwrong

I thought I would have got this one right… evidently not. Though thinking about it, I don’t know why I would have predicted Manik to win? Who knows.

 

redline

Ryota Hama vs. Ethan Carter the Third

Crazy to think that EC3 is still undefeated, it almost seems like that was an accident, because honestly, if it wasn’t mentioned so much, I wouldn’t have remembered. He just doesn’t seem like a Undefeated kind of guy. I suppose it’s nice to see him actually fighting more Challenging opponents, but really perhaps there are too many Undefeated Streaks these days.

I don’t care if EC3 is undefeated or not, I suppose the purpose would be to get people to hate him so much, they want to see him lose. Which I’m sure they are working on.

Ryota Hama… I didn’t need to see that.

Sure he comes from a Sumo background, but then he’s pretty much Rikishi with an authentic Japanese Sumo background.

He wore the same get-up, did the whole Running “rear-end” thing and of course the Stink Face.

I know there is probably a place for the “Big Guys”, but it really doesn’t help a Wrestling show. There’s quite a limit there.

Least EC3 won, with I believe a Low-Blow, then One Percenter for the Three Count.

These are the two matches which are on the complete opposite ends of the Spectrum, the best match on the card, followed by the worst match on the card. So I guess it can only get better.

There’s perhaps some kind of “thought” in that booking.

bfgcorrect

I predicted this one right though! Woo point to me!

 

redline

MVP vs. Kazma Sakamoto

I mentioned before that I was impressed with the Japanese talent, there are two exceptions, Ryota Hama, who I didn’t like, at all. And Kazma Sakamoto who I couldn’t give two craps about. However, I did like his attire.

This match was very, very interesting. Sure, it instantly appealed because MVP played the Comic-Book card and I instantly respect, acknowledge and won over by in a complete biased manor.

I’ve not married Comic-Books and MVP before, so for him to rock the Punisher logo was pretty cool.

To top that, MVP cut a very real promo about his love of Professional Wrestling which obviously speaks to those whom love professional wrestling, to make that better, this was a totally new side of MVP which I haven’t seen before.

There were no “storyline” elements, he wasn’t trying to be the Bad Guy, he just came out and Wrestled, he was aggressive and impressive. That’s an MVP I can get behind. I think he’s brilliantly charismatic and at home on a mic, I think he can (as everyone) get bogged down in a muddle of Storyline rubbish. But he has a lot of skills, now again, I haven’t seen MVP compete in this fashion, and it’s something I highly enjoyed.

I like the team of King and Lashley, I enjoy that very much, I think we just need this kind of style out of MVP more often, then I can absolutely see where I would place him on the card, which is what I always struggled with once he was removed from the position of “authority” on the show.

Now I’m sure Kazma has skills which didn’t translate during this one match, but I’m ever so happy MVP kicked him in the face for the Win.

Plus that Big Boot from MVP on the outside sending Kazma over the rails – awesome.

Predicted this wrong. Boo….

lol…. no, just me?
bfgwrong2

redline

Low Ki vs. Kaz Hayashi vs. Samoa Joe – X-Division Championship

The only real Championship defense on the card.

And as you would expect, it lived up to what you’d want from it. I don’t know much about Kaz Hayashi, though he was good, he didn’t leave a lasting impression on me.

Low Ki and Joe brought the fight and the intensity as you would imagine, not only that but I trust in Joe to actually help the X-Division out.

I’ve been enjoying the recent matches for the Championship and I genuinely feel Joe wants to build the Division to the heights it once was. Low Ki is a great fit for that, hell all of the guys in TNA are a great fit for everything the company has to offer, the company just needs to put the time into helping the divisions.

I don’t think I’ve seen a match where the guys Slapped each other to the point that it wasn’t funny. These three brought it hard, very impactful, very intense.

In the end Joe caught Low Ki in his Rear-Naked Choke and choked him out for the Victory.

Predicted this one right, which was pretty easy.. .so doesn’t really count.

bfgcorrect2

redline

Andy Wu and Del Pantera vs. Kuroshio Ikemen Jiro & Yusuke Kodama

The only match on the card to feature entirely Wrestle 1 talent. And I’m shocked by which team won. Now granted Kuroshio and Yusuke gathered a lot of momentum and because increasingly impressive. I hate them.

I hate his stupid hair, the crap “rockstar” gimmick. It’s been done, plus I didn’t buy it, at all. It looked like a gimmick, why would his friend carry around a mirror for his egotistical pal. What’s going on.

So yeah, they just annoyed me.

However, Pantera and Wu, holy balls!

Now I don’t through around the phrase “Holy Balls” often, but right here, in this very case, Holy god damn balls!

Pantera instantly stood out and appealed to me, well, aside from being named after a Metal Band I don’t care for.

I like the quirky mis-match look, but he has some serious skill. I’ve never seen anyone just run around the ropes, literally on the ropes like this guy. I was impressed.

And Andy Wu, he was literally like a Video Game character. I know that terminology gets thrown around a lot, but he was literally like a Video Game Character. He was flipping all over the floor, flipping on to his feet, almost stopping himself in mid-air to do a corkscrew drop-kick, insane.

Now whichever one was the dude with the Long-Hair, he was also highly impressive in the later parts of the match. A standing corkscrew moonsault, forget about it. Plus his insane Senton to the floor was awesome.

So I get the push and direction yadda yadda yadda, I just don’t care the gimmick. They won though.

But I would sign Del and Wu, but maybe that’s just me.

I am impressed I predicted this match correctly, despite knowing nothing of the match, so you could say it was dumb luck given a 50/50 scenario, I’d like to put it down to my skill set… so that’s what I’m going to do. bfgcorrect3

 

redline

Tommy Dreamer and Abyss vs. Team 3D – Street Fight

I don’t know what to say.

It was exactly what it says on the tin. I get it, Team 3D – Hall of Fame, they need a match on the card, this is what they do best, Dreamer and Abyss fit. Go time.

So I get it. It just wasn’t really anything special, or different or all that exciting. Just what you’d expect.

I guess now is as good a time as any to talk about the actual “Hall of Fame” induction. For the third year running TNA has managed to make their Hall of Fame look worse and worse.

The Talent is there, despite actually being signed to the Company.

The production of the show though, it just looks naff. It doesn’t look grand at all, which is a shame. Not only that but the speeches at these things are just terrible. Very subpar.

Team 3D deserve it, so I’m happy they are in it. They feel a better fit for the Hall of Fame than Sting and Kurt because they feel like a “We did it first” attempt. Bully and Devon have been in TNA longer than any other Wrestling company they’ve been associated with in the past. I respect that, they are TNA guys now.

I enjoyed the match though, just nothing to brag about.

The Japanese crowd surprised me with a good “Holy Sh*t” chant, and their Tables are laughable.

That is all.

I also predicated the win correctly… but who didn’t?

bfgcorrect4

 

redline

Velvet Sky vs. Havok – Knockouts Championship

This was some crap booking.

I like Velvet, she’s not as gifted in the ring as some Women’s Wrestlers, but she gets the job done, and is entertaining, is all you want. She’s very likable.

However, you spend a good few weeks building Havok, she dominates, pushes everyone around, lays out everyone in her path, yes multiple, multiple Knockouts. She takes out a whole bunch of Male Security guards and beats down and dominated Gail Kim – the best Women’s Wrestler in the industry and took the Knockouts Championship from her in a matter of weeks of debuting and putting Gail on the shelf in the process.

Now Velvet vs. Havok, and this match lasted more than 3minutes. Don’t buy it.

This should have been a Squash match, I know perhaps they didn’t want to do that with Velvet, but Havok should have ran right through her in no time. Then pad the match out with her beating the crap out of Velvet.

There is no way Velvet should even be able to build any type of offense on Havok. No way at all.

I am pleased that Havok worked the mid-section of Velvet and won via a Bear Hug, that shows her “power” but it should have been far easier for her.

Predicted correctly. Obviously, again, who didn’t?

bfgcorrect5

 

redline

James Storm and The Great Sanada vs. Tajiri and The Great Muta

The only match on the card that had any reason and motivation behind it.

Which pretty much means that Bound for Glory existed – because of this very Main Event.

I don’t think James Storm’s revolution is built anywhere near enough to be Main Event worthy where people actually care.

Least thankfully it’s not built to be some crappy “takeover” thing at Bound for Glory…. this year.

The match was entertaining for sure, but if Muta and Tajiri weren’t spraying multiple different coloured mist everywhere, it would have been a little bit more dull.

I think they should have had the guts to let Storm and Sanada win.

And win violently and underhandedly.

As it was an awesome Double Mist from Tajiri and Muta took out Sanada who suffered the Shinning Wizard to the face and lost.

Storm and Sanada then continued the assault by bringing down Manik to help out. Which ended with Team 3D saving the day.

Which also was corny and naff.

I have no idea if Bully is even going to stick around with TNA, so this feels like borrowed time, more like a good “exit” ppv for Team 3D rather than anything else. A Hall of Fame induction, a last Hoorah match and a high to close off the show. Then that’s it.

I hope not.

Predicted it right…. but also stated it hopefully wrong!

bfgwrong3

I also hope Storm continues to build this Revolution, though now being defeated by Muta and not going back to Japan makes his quest and motivation much less irrelevant.

 

redline

As far as a really good Wrestling filled entertaining / interesting Wrestling show then Bound for Glory paid off.

However, being Bound for Glory was what let it down. It didn’t feel like TNA, it felt like filler.

No Championships, no Build Up, no stakes, no nothing. The show would have worked fine for anything else, other than the Biggest Show of the year.

Bring back the Bound for Glory series, or least something similar, because the Main Event isn’t the same without a decent well built Challenger, that’s what is exciting. I loved the BFG Series, mainly toward the end, but a great idea, needs a bit of fine tuning.

Hopefully TNA can get their TV Contract sorted out, get some money and one day head to Japan again for a PPV, and actually take the show over for a few nights and put the belts on the line, and create a TNA Show – from Japan.

 

Till then.

Monday Night Raw #1116: October 13, 2014!!!

Smack Talk Centre-Raw

Smack Talk Centre Raw Logo

The Infamous Informer

What a ting on WWE last week! They pulled out the ace – The Rock appearing and I wasn’t watching live…. DAMNIT! Then on Smackdown, they teased Triple H Vs The Rock for WrestleMania… wrestling fans are going crazy! If you not feeling it… yeah I see a few of you like – ‘again? I don’t wanna see them again after all these years’ simply put – SHUT THE F**K UP!

For years, you wanted Cena to go back to Hardcore Thuganomics, finally he has… with Wiz Khalifa for the WWE2K15 soundtrack? Rest assured, RePPiN4U WILL NOT be supporting that – too many hot hip hop is out now… and on top of that, Wu-Tang’s A Better Tomorrow is coming Dec 2…there’s no room for that John Cena sh!t here??!!!

Enough of that sh!t – can I get the bell tolling for an unexpected Undertaker appearance? No? Oh well… RAW #1116! HOL’ DAT – BLAOW!

WWF PROPA TINGZOH SNAP!!!! Ambrose is gonna beat Cena with the pole at the PPV? I say take that pole to the cell as well and beat down Rollins too!

How are you gonna come back from that Cena?

Oh hell naw Ambrose don’t listen to Cena! Shut up and relax?? Calm down? That’s telling Ambrose to not be himself!!! The fans love all that unpredictability and sh!t! Think about it people! Why do we love Ambrose in the first place? Was it for being calm and collective? NO, Is it for his heroic behavior? NO! He’s an anti-hero! Ambrose can’t think like you fool!!!!

Ok Triple & Steph this $9.99 joke isn’t funny any more yo, unless us UK cats get some fake @$$ US account we can’t see your bumbaclart network!!! Quite frankly, come Nov 1, I don’t think I’ll be excited anymore… I’ll be too busy playing WWE2K15 and sh!t!!!

We gonna kick this sh!t off with a triple threat tag team match up… now Ambrose & Cena are on the same team… against Usos and Dust brudda… long time since we saw one of these don’t you think?

LET’S GO CENA! CENA SUCKS!!!

While this contest is happening, I’m sorry if you are dissing the Real Housewives of Atlanta just because one of em is a guest host on Raw this week… you are a F**K!NG FAGGOT…OK!!! Yeah I said it! If there is one thing I cannot stand, is muthaf***!ng wrestling fans disrespecting divas and female celebrities. Try getting some pu$$y – oh hang on, WARCRAFT DOES NOT COUNT!!!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

You muthaf***az all called that Randall equation only because you read the f**k!n dirt sheets… don’t act like you came up with it all by yourself… get the f**k outta here! As you may have guessed, I’m not in a good mood. I hope Randall f**ks up that battyman Ziggler.. I told you muthaf***az – WHOEVER LOSES – I WIN… You want Ambrose Vs Rollins – but you gonna get Cena vs Orton at the same time… you don’t want that… so who looks the fool now? B!TCH!!!

WTF was that? While Orton was floored, Ziggler says ‘Right here brother’ pointing to his d!ck???? You tell me Ziggler isn’t a faggot?

Uh-oh!! Why would Seth Rollins come down during Randall’s match????? It makes no sense…. or am I about to call what you jabronies didn’t call?

YES!!!! Ziggler tried the Frankenstiener, Randall with a counter – RKO – BLAOW! Randall wins!!!! Everything’s Going My Waaaaaaaaayyyyyy!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I think Randall should come back out and observe… then after the match, Randall should hit the RKO on Swagger… I think this week’s RAW hasn’t been too bad!

Oh dear Swagger as a black eye… that was ME! THUNDER GOD FIST IN HIS IRIS – BLAOW! I don’t like racists!!!!!

Oh sh!t! Randall has come out here for true!!!! He went in the back, updated his twitter, and come back out! Oh yeah that reminds me – Smack Talk Centre has re-launched on twitter! FOLLOW US @stc_wwe!

Just like I said!!! Great counter by Swagger when he countered the curb stomp to the patriot lock, but Rollins lived up to his name literally with a roll up pin and grabbing all the tights he could… but Orton with an RKO to Swagger – BLAOW!!! Looked like Rollins and Orton were gonna come to blows… I smell a twist in this Hell In A Cell main event…and it smells stronger!

Word on the street is Renée Young & Dean Ambrose are f**k!ng…. looks kinda odd seeing her interview him… I’m jussaying!

Oh my days Lana is out here with her tight blouse & skirt… excuse me while I fix my trousers….

WU-TANG BREAST CANCER AWARENESS

This is straight up creativity what Sandow is doing! Everything Miz do… Sandow does on that stunt double sh!t! Even down to when he gets lick down!

Oh word? Happy Thanksgiving Day in Canada? Shout out to my lady getting in that turkey right now!

The MAN in the PURPLE SUIT!

Haha Naomi & Cameron remind me of my sisters so much! Same way how they go on! I’m glad Naomi & Cameron aren’t related to me… I would be mad upset!!!! True story – I had a crush on one girl who lives near my moms… OHHHHH! She’s so fine… I wanted to step to her but didn’t know how… next thing I know she turns up at a family funeral… turns out she was my cousin…. thank God I didn’t go there… but at the same time I was like – NOOOOOOO!!!!!!

This should be good… Cameron, Nikki & Summer Rae Vs Natalya, Naomi and Brie…. Cameron & Nene Leakes clashed backstage… this should be good!

Nene looks like she can pull off two clothesline of her own! I hope Cameron doesn’t come to outta order and bright!

Arrrrgh man – what was the point in Nene being there??? She did nothing except cheer on her Total Divas…. god damnit where’s Ronda Rousey??? She will give you proper storyline!

ENOUGH OF ALL THAT SH!T!!!! Let’s do this No Holds Barred (WYATT INTERRUPTION – ‘DEATH!’)

Oh boy oh boy… these Wyatt man…. they are coming back to f**k sh!t up! Whoever had that idea that the Ascension were coming to join the Wyatt Fam – SLAP YOURSELF!!! One thing you must learn in today’s WWE – don’t expect so much… only when you don’t expect will you mark out when sh!t goes down… but when you do expect so much and sh!t don’t go down then you turn around say it’s sh!t…. NO – YOUR PERSPECTIVE IS SH!T!!!

..and as for you dirt sheet muthaf***az, John Cena makes a tune with Wiz Khalifa and suddenly Cena has another gimmick??? Can’t believe you guys get paid for writing bullsh!t!!! ENOUGH – let’s do this Main event…. er uh-oh… the Authority is out here, Seth Rollins wants to come out here…. so does Randall…. ok I truly smell it now! My hero Ka- er I mean Glenn??? WTF???? I SMELL THAT MARVELLOUS JAMAICAN CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP!

Dayum Ambrose really is a lunatic! Ambrose biting Cena’s hand to get out the STF super move! He’s not even getting the contract when he’s supposed to! I’ll tell you this – if Cena gets the contract, I’m staying out of wrestling groups until the end of the week!

Oh snap! It’s No disqualification! the Authority rushing Cena! It enabled Ambrose to get the contract! I hope you jabronies are happy! I told you…. WHOEVER LOSES – I WIN!! You wanted Ambrose vs Rollins…you got it – but in the process – you get Randall Vs Cena… a match that happened 3 or 4 years ago…. Deal With It…. BIATCH!!!!

THE JOBBER BLOGGER #128 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 8/10/14

Jobber-Blogger

The Jobber Blogger

I shall start this off again by Apologising for the delay in last week’s Jobber Blogger. It’s now 11:15pm on Friday, and I’m super tired, but there’s no way I can afford to get behind!
It’s Bound for Glory week, if I miss Impact for even a day it’s then all on top of me again.

Impact saw a slight, minimal increase in the Ratings this week, no doubt due to the Full Metal Mayhem match, but it really is a shame that TNA have put on these awesome matches, and they just don’t draw in the attention they should.
Personally it makes little sense to have this on a Televised show of Impact, rather than say Bound for Glory.
I know they had other plans, but moving this Full Metal Mayhem match to a PPV would have made it all that more special.
I’ve said it the last few weeks running, but the Crowds just don’t seem great, and that can really suck the energy out of a show, especially viewing it edited and obviously taped back to back.
But hey, that’s the current situation, least Impact is putting on History worth matches!

Impact Wrestling Logo

TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 8/10/14

Angelina Love (w/Velvet Sky) vs. Taryn Terrell vs. Madison Rayne – #1 Contender Match – Knockouts Championship

Okay so Impact didn’t kick off with this match, it kicked off with Bobby Roode, MVP and Kenny King, but there’s little point getting into that build up when I have to write down the match later on, so I’ll get to that a little later.

This match as it is, is more confusing.

The Winner of this match will face the Winner of the Bound for Glory match between Havok and Velvet.

It’s a little odd to throw Velvet into a match against Havok as it is, clearly because if Gail got dominated, then Velvet isn’t going to stand much of a chance.

Shame ODB is no longer with TNA because that would have been a better pairing. Even better still would be Lei’D Tapa, and hey, it might happen once she’s had a little more training.

Lei'D Tapa Train
Classic… If I don’t say so myself! 😉

It’s all a bit jumbled up, but obviously TNA only had so much time to fit in as many TV Tapings as possible before they are off Spike TV. So they’ve taped beyond Bound for Glory, hence why BFG can’t have any title matches etc, so it’s more of a One Off Special on a grand scale.

My gripe with Wrestling not being consistent with following the rules when it comes to Faces and Heels always seems to involve Angelina. Of course you could make a good argument for me being as biased as I am.

However should Angelina and Velvet have double teamed anyone in this match (though Velvet did interfere a little) Tenay would have been all over the place for such shenanigans.

Yet as it is, Taryn and Madison double teamed Angelina, and that’s just put down to “putting aside their differences).

The very phrase putting aside their differences also makes it sound like Madison is a heel, which I’m sure she is building to, given she cheated by pulling the Trunks of Taryn to get the win.
It just makes it sound like it’s more defined than it currently is. I like Madison as a face, but she probably is a better heel…. but then, aren’t most?

I don’t see anyone being a Threat to Havok anytime soon, which makes me think someone else might hiding away, like the aforementioned Lei’D Tapa.

James Storm and The Great Sanada vs. Low Ki and Tigre Uno

So one of my absolute favourites – Tigre Uno shined as always in this match. But, what I wanted above all was for Storm to take Uno and bring him into his Revolution.

That didn’t happen… yet.

I’m still hoping, mainly just to give Uno some Air-Time.

I much prefer Sanada in his current role and look, not so much the “Muta” inspired, just a bit more toned down and edgier than he previously was.

Still have no idea why James Storm is creating brightly coloured shiny plastic wearing High Flyers. He doesn’t really “fit” with that style. But I do like his leadership, I’m still hoping for Storm to have a proper World Title run, hopefully next year sometime, and this faction could be his “rise”. Unless of course Muta and Tajiri put a stop to that at BFG. Which given the Japanese crowd, they might play it safe.

Low Ki and Uno both very impressive, it was actually nice to see Storm tangle with the High Flyers for a change, Sanada sprayed the mist at Uno leaving him open for the Last Call Superkick and the Win.

tigre uno fn
How many times have I used this now?… seriously?

Samuel Shaw vs. Bram – Street Fight

I don’t remember if they billed this match as a Street Fight or not? Doesn’t matter, many different names, all the same thing.

I actually don’t know why this match took place. I enjoyed it.

TNA is now claiming Shaw has been and Tattooed his Arms because of his connection / obsession with Gunner.

OF course anyone who remembers, will know Shaw had these Tattoo’s before. But it’s a somewhat clever way to get him out of his Dexter clothes and develop the story…. if not a little weird.

SamShaw

Bram who is still on the rise took quite a beating in this match, which is odd. I actually don’t know who the heel is, or if they are both heels. Are we supposed to like Bram more because he’s successful, or are we supposed to route for Shaw given his redemption and connections to Gunner?

Or are we supposed to dislike them both, but enjoy the match.

I like both Bram and Shaw, and enjoyed the match. Option D…. or C. I didn’t check.
Also Math.

Also… Also.

also elmo
I didn’t know Bram was married to WWE’s NXT Women’s Champion, I know Bram was released from the WWE. But it’s a cool connection. Not to mention that Charlotte – NXT Women’s Champ is also the Daughter of Ric Flair. So Bram is the Son in Law of the Nature Boy.

Kind of cool.

Bram then hit Shaw in the head with the Turnbuckle and won. Brittany wondered down to the ring and cradles Shaw’s fuzzy chop face.

Bobby Roode vs. MVP and Kenny King – Handicap Match

As I mentioned at the get-go, Impact kicked off with Roode again going on about wanting “One More Match” with Lashley. Least he didn’t keep repeating it to get the Crowd chanting this week. Nothing looks more pathetic than a Guy trying to get a match after losing fair and square by “trying” to get the Crowd chanting for the same goal.

I do miss Heel Roode. I’m sure should Roode get the World Championship again, I will miss Heel Roode all the more.

It will also mean he won’t have the belt for very long – good guy champions are rather boring…
MVP still speaking for Lashley turned down Roode’s attempts for a Re-match once more. But instead from the aid of Kenny King added this stipulation and match – should Roode beat them both, he gets a Title Shot, if not, he can never Wrestle for the World Championship again. Which Roode agreed to… sounds smart.

Clearly Roode wasn’t going to lose this match, and I’m glad Lashley came out and DQ’d King by beating up Roode. Makes it much better, and much more interesting.

What was far funnier was Kurt Angle’s little backstage segment with MVP stating that MVP doesn’t run the show anymore. Given that this was toward the end of Impact, I question the logic of if Kurt Angle was even running the show!

Given that he wasn’t there at the start, or even during the match, he clearly wasn’t paying too much attention.

Roode technically took the win by a DQ, but none of the stated Stipulations took place as Angle set a Number #1 Contenders Match for next week.

Ethan Carter the Third and Spud continue to develop their little break up.

Spud himself as stated that he was so happy TNA gave him the chance to re-invent himself with this Chief of Staff role for Dixie Carter. I was sure Spud was going to get fired sooner or later, we barely saw him on TV, I think he maybe had two, three matches tops and really didn’t seem like a good fit. He said the same thing about himself, which I admire.

But thank god he had the chance to be the Chief of Staff, because Spud has been a highlight in TNA ever since.

As I said last week, I don’t know the longevity of a Spud face turn, I’m not sure it would be the same should he not be a heel character. But I can totally get behind him against EC3, in terms of being bullied and Spud’s little defiance turn.

Spud eventually Slapped EC3, but then EC3 fired Spud from his services. I just thought, should EC3 and Spud face one another, I think EC3 should beat him down, badly, but in a “good effort” kind of way.

The Hardyz vs. Team 3D vs. The Wolves – Full Metal Mayhem – World Tag-Team Championships

Was this series better than Beer Money vs. Motor City?

Honestly I don’t remember that Series amazingly well, but I would say yes. Only given the heights of the series and the participants.

I didn’t make any notes, only as to who won.

The Wolves retained their Championships, which I think is fitting. I’d have liked to see The Hardyz with the belts, and I hope that actually happens. But really, Team 3D should have won if the titles were going to change hands.

But putting over The Wolves was the right move.

The only thing that taints this match was the fact we know it was Taped and that the Crowd just wasn’t electric enough as you’d like.

The match itself – phenomenal.

The very first Full Wrestling PPV I watched as a regular Wrestling fan was SummerSlam 2000 – the very first TLC Match, and that PPV will always be special to me. The Hardyz have been my favourites since I got into Wrestling, to have them and 3D to do this again, 14 years later, is crazy.

It might have been 14 years, but the level of the match, the intensity of the match, was right up there with the best.

Which is also depressing, this Match is worthy of being Remembered in Wrestling History, so many of TNA’s matches are. But will they ever be?

It’s hard to say, I really hope so. If TNA ever go under, I really hope the WWE buy out their tapes just to have it on Record.

Can I sit back and say that this match, was THE match of the year. No.

But it’s definitely the front runner, and I can’t wait to go back and re-watch it!
This is the Wrestling I grew up Loving, with 80% the exact Same guys, and I love that.

So that’s another Impact, yet again a Solid show with a Fantastic Main Event. But it does seem no matter what they put on, TNA just drags along at the same level it’s always at.
Which is a shame, it really is.

Bound for Glory is this Sunday, I will do my best to get it Written up for Wednesday!
I’d like to do the “Predictions” segment for the PPV’s, and I shall, but obviously it’s not really a Storyline driven PPV, and it features 40 – 50% of talent I don’t know.

The Great Muta & Tajiri vs. James Storm & The Great Sanada
– James Storm and Sanada win – (least I hope, probably wrong)

Samoa Joe vs. Low Ki vs. Kaz Hayashi – X-Division Championship
– Samoa Joe retains.

Ethan Carter III vs. Ryota Hama
– EC3 win

Team 3D vs. Abyss & Tommy Dreamer
– Team 3D Win

MVP vs. Kazma Sakamoto
– Kazma Sakamoto win

Manik vs. Minoru Tanaka
– Manik win

Havok vs. Velvet Sky – Knockouts Championship
– Havok retains

Andy Wu & El Hijo del Pantera vs. Jiro Kuroshio & Yusuke Kodama
– Jiro and Yusuke win (no idea?)

Looking forward to Bound For Glory!
Till then!

THE JOBBER BLOGGER #127 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 1/10/14

Jobber-Blogger

The Jobber Blogger

So yeah, let’s talk about that Elephant in the Room huh? Yes, it’s late, I am fully aware. I do apologise for the lateness of this week’s issue, and last week’s, but hey, I’m a little later this week. I’ve not been this late since I worked Part-Time – yup, do the math on that.

math

I don’t do math.

I could go on and on about why I didn’t get the time to Write this up till Wednesday night, but that doesn’t matter. What does matter is TNA: Impact Wrestling, so let’s get to that shall we?

TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 1/10/14

Holy Cheese Nips – Bound for Glory is this Sunday. How crazy is that? It felt like it was ages away, hell it feels like nothing – at – all has been done for this PPV on Television. Aside from James Storm / Sanada / Muta there is nothing more. And that Story has been a B-Story at best running “here and there” in the background, now it’s the main event on the biggest show of the year. Awesome.

Still, I’m looking forward to Bound for Glory – if for nothing more than being up to date with TNA, I can’t explain how much I hate pre-taped Wrestling Television.

It’s all about the here and now, and that was a Month ago. Okay sure, that was an exaggeration, but you get the drift.

blueline

Austin Aries vs. Samoa Joe – X-Division Championship

Aries kicked off the show to talk about what Championship he was going to Challenge for. That’s right, an Entire episode of Impact was to determine this position. Aries just rambling on is enough to bring out Samoa Joe who (now get this) Challenges Austin Aries.

Yeah that happened.

Aries battles through this tournament to get this great opportunity – to then be challenged himself by a Champion rather than the other way round and lose.

This just makes it feel more like a House Show.

The idea of Joe vs. Aries is exciting, because Joe vs. Aries #1 back in 2012 was the second best match that year. However this meeting of Joe and Aries – though good, not nearly as good.

I suppose I am a little biased when it comes to Aries, but really, you don’t need to be, because he backs it up himself. Aries, as per usual was on fire, on point and brilliant.

I guess I would have enjoyed the match a little more should Aries have taken the win. But I can’t argue. Least they’re letting Aries beat everyone to get shots lately, they seem to be putting him in the right places.

Both Aries and Joe struggled to get this promo off the ground for the two of them to do battle, but in the end, it didn’t really matter.

Which would have been much better if Joe came out to blab for no reason and Aries just walked out and discus elbowed him in the face – Bam – Match – Challenge set and accepted. As it was Aries went for the Last Chancery and was instead caught by Joe’s rear naked choke for the Win.

Though I can’t argue with a great solid match to kick off the show. Though I will whine, a lot.

A lot.

whine

blueline

Eric Young vs. Ethan Carter the Third

The main story here is EC3 and Spud. Last week it was built that there were “issues” between the two, and this week cemented it.

EC3 gave Spud a good heel speech of “in what world, would we be friend?” then ruined his jacket.

This is obviously to build Spud as a face. Here is the problem.

It’s been there done that territory again, I think it always will be with Wrestling. People really like Spud, and that’s because he’s great in the Role he’s in. Making him face changes that role, and people care less. It always happens. People love Heels, Spud isn’t trying to be a “heel” but making him a face would alter his response from the crowd.

However he was extremely good at getting the Sympathy vote. So it might work, least for a short amount of time. Like Joseph Park.

EY who was set to fight EC3 later in the match came out to stand up for Spud, and thus the match took place.

Spud (reluctantly) helped EC3 win.

EC3 works well as a Heel, Spud works well being a naive heel manager. I think he’s capable of doing a good run as a Face, I just don’t think it will be the same. Time will tell. But sooner rather than later, Spud will turn on EC3.

Though now I’ve said that, I will probably be wrong… I hope I am.

blueline

Do you know what Annoyed me the most about this week’s Impact. It was the unnecessary “conflict” placed into the Tag-Team Series.

The Wolves with their “Wolves Nation” (which is a horribly bad name), decided to blab on about being a Good Tag-Team. That people didn’t think they were up to much. Let’s be fair, they did lose two matches straight.

Plus they’ve barely defended the Tag-Belts.

Still, it was a speech I didn’t need to hear. Of course this only got worse with Team 3D being un-characteristically negative. Sure Bully and Devon have probably played Heels more than Faces, especially Bully. But right now, their position in the Company is not to be big headed egotistical bad-guys all of a sudden. “You’ll never be as good as us, that’s just fact” – no offense to the Wolves, but they are probably right.

It was just un-needed. This was only to become worse with The Hardyz getting involved. Who not only blabbed on at Team 3D with yet another “history talk”, but they too downgraded the Wolves by stating how less they are in comparison. Another un-characteristic speech. Plus Jeff screamed about something I could have done without.

In the end they all end up brawling and this brings out the weapons which makes for the Full Metal Mayhem announcement.

I think everyone was fairly sure where this was going, they did re-create the old TLC announcement, only with “Tables, Ladders, Chairs…. Full Metal Mayhem!” which, whatever, I don’t care anymore.

Either way, this will take place next week, and I guarantee it’s the Match of the Year. Least I’m hoping it will be, I can’t wait for it.

I just think there must be a much cleverer way to get these guys to have disagreements and fight, without it being cheap, meaningless and let’s be honest, silly.

blueline

Manik (w/James Storm) vs. Shark Boy

Good ol Filler Shark Boy is back this week. I do like Shark Boy, but he’ll always be the one you don’t take seriously. But I love the parody, I revel in it.

Manik looking like a sleek super-hero AJ Styles – and also much less menacing then he used to, squashed Shark Boy with ease.

I like the idea, I don’t get how rough and tough scruffy Cowboy – James Storm, beer bottle in hand and giant Beer, works with sleek looking shiny attired Luchardor styled Wrestlers. I don’t see that match, but I don’t hate it.

Come on Tigre-Uno.

blueline

MVP (w/Kenny King) vs. Mr. Anderson (w/Chris Melendez)

Anderson who gave a pep talk to Melendez about sticking up for yourself, fighting these guys back, proving your ground. Then went into battle for him instead.

So not only is Melendez weak, incapable, but he needs people to do things for him too. I’m sorry, wasn’t this guy a tough, mean, driven War Hero who wouldn’t back down. Rather than someone who needs so much help and support.

It makes me like him less and less. I’d only like him more at this point if Anderson punched him in the face. Is that bad?

Kenny got involved on the Apron, Melendez pulled him down, Anderson distracted, MVP roll up – Win.

Meh.

Bobby Roode came out to do his yearly “I’ve been home and had time to re-think my career” speech. A Trend James Storm started which AJ Styles did, and Roode has done it twice if not Three Times now.

Roode decided he’s only as good as his last match and Challenges Lashley to one more match – because he knows he can beat him.

MVP answered for him by saying No. That’s pretty much it.

blueline

Gail Kim vs. Havok – Knockouts Championship

Gail Kim and Havok had a fight earlier in the night, you knew something was up because Gail didn’t get the second entrance, she was attacked by Havok, who then threw her into the Ring Post and slammed onto the Floor “injuring her shoulder”.

Gail then did a terrible promo of being injured and demanding to Wrestle whilst Kurt Angle did an equally terrible job of acting alongside her. It was awful, like some weird low-budget porn.

Gail and Kurt

Gail still didn’t get the Champion entrance on the second time round, but I am extremely happy the Knockouts got to Main Event Impact.

I do like Havok, she is growing on me more and more, but I don’t yet see her as good as perhaps some others do.

Of course she pretty much destroys Gail and Chokeslams her for the Win and becomes the new Knockouts Champion.

So much for Taryn Terrell eh.

I have no issues with this.

blueline

A bit of a strange mash up of a Show, but certainly not a bad one.

TNA just doesn’t feel right currently. I’m expecting that to be different come next week’s Full Metal Mayhem, but how long will it last?

Bound for Glory I’m sure will be something special, I just hope TNA gets it all back on track for 2015.

Till then,

Monday Night Raw #1115: October 6, 2014!!!

Smack Talk Centre-Raw

Smack Talk Centre Raw Logo

The Infamous Informer

It’s true Worst Comes to Worst my peoples come first… I gotta play Uncle duties, I had to look after my nephew while a family funeral is happening out-of-town. Which meant I missed RAW, and after what, two, three weeks of RAW foolishness, WWE pulls one out the hat when I’m not watching live??? DAMNIT, DAMNIT! DAMNIT!!!!!

This is my version of the events as according to WWE.Com. RAW #1115! HOL’ DAT – BLAOW!

WWF PROPA TINGZSince when did you become a 2Pac fan Seth Rollins? All Eyes On Me, Me Against the World Sh!t???!!! All my enemies wanna kill me??!!! Thug Life Tattooed on my Belly??!!! He claims he loves it… well yeah – because you haven’t got BUSS ARSE yet that’s why!

Well Seth is either a 2Pac fan or a fan of Catwoman! This guy must have more lives than that b!tch! Every time Cena or Ambrose tries to get at him his legs did run! But not this time! Running into the crowd… what was The Shield known for apart from beating muthaf***az into the table? Yes – coming through the crowd – and that’s exactly what Ambrose did!

That’s it! BEAT HIM!!!! Oh goddamnit who sent the stooges down to break it up??? Hey Seth! Ever thought of running the 100 metres? I believe you can beat Usain Bolt!!!!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

Word on the street is that idiot Ziggler lost his Intercontinental Championship Belt at the airport… So irresponsible! Vince – FIRE HIS B!TCH @$$!!! You got money to recuperate damnit!

…and that’s the man you IWC b!tches want to become WWE Champion? It’s never gonna happen now – the fool lost the IC Belt!

OH SNAP!!!!! Ziggler & the Usos – triple kick in the kisser of Stardust – BLAOW!!!! His full set of teeth should be coming out of his @$$ by now!

Oh no it’s ok – he found it… where do you IWC jabronies get your info from? STOP READING THE DYAM DIRT SHEETS!

What the f**k does Adam Rose look like? I’m sorry – I can’t support him… he looks like a battyman vampire! I shall speak no more about this.

WHAT? NO! Bo Dallas defeats my don Mark Henry again??? I mean this time Henry had criminal intentions… he wanted to f**k up Dallas this time, setting up the announce table and sh!t… I say do it anyway! And say – THAT’S WHAT I DO!!!

Be patient Henry… you’ll get him!

Hmmm… amusing…Cena says that he sees in Ambrose what no one else has: GUTS… why did he not say ‘ATTITUDE’??? I’m jussaying… Shout out to the attitards!!!

So STC’s Ian Cooper was right!!!! Cena Vs Ambrose at the Hell in the Cell PPV with the winner facing Seth Rollins? What do you make of that people??? I’ll tell you what – tune in this week on BDSIR NETWORK – STC From The UK Sat 1am UK time, 8pm EST!

“You said you could beat me with one hand tied behind your back…. COME ON HOT SHOT!!!” (Vince McMahon to Stone Cold Steve Austin, April 1998)

10469748_10204537437416929_5824888263508120328_nWell Brie Bella thought she could try the same thing against Summer Rae. With my sexy Layla on her side, surely Summer Rae can’t go wrong, right?

WRONG!!!!! I can’t believe you Summer! I thought you had skills? Disappointed ain’t the word!!!

Big ups to Brie though…. she’s keeping the YES movement alive! Her music is still wack though… I gotta go in the lab and find a suitable theme song for her… since I don’t fancy Brie like I do Layla, Rosa, Naomi, Lillian, Stephanie… it will take me a while to find that track…

How is Tyson Kidd gonna use Natalya as a shield to get away from Wack Swagger? What sort of stupidness is that???

HAHAHA! Tyson Kidd getting the better of Swagger and Tyson is like – HI FIVE Nattie! Natalya just kissed her teeth and walked away!!!

Big ups to Roman Reigns he’s on the mend… but let’s be real… that was a waste of satellite TV!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

Oh snap! It’s Vladamir Putin’s Birthday! SALUTE THIS MAN!!!! Or maybe not…..

Vladimir_Putin_-_2006

HA! HA! HA! HA! Lana don’t give me joke! The Big Show should be in prison like all of us???!!! For desecrating the Russian Flag? OH SH!T!!! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! We committed a hate crime!!!! Wait a minute – Lana baby girl – haven’t you being hating on the Americans for months now????!!!

I’m not American, but I would chant USA! Just to hear Lana say SHUT-UP!!! It turns me on….!!!!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

Er… Rusev…. if Big Show has been suspended, why you calling him out so you can crush him???? Er… anybody in there??? (knocking your head to check if there is a brain in there!)

NOW THIS IS WHAT I HEARD ABOUT!!! The past few weeks, I’ve been yawning my @$$ off at RAW and watching Babestation at the same time. The ONE WEEK I miss Raw due to family commitments, and THE ROCK appears on RAW???!!! Did you IWC jabronies pick this up in the dirt sheets??? You think Lana is getting wet…. with perspiration???

Hit the link below after the jump:

The Rock went to Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx!!! That’s what I love about this dude – he knows his Hip Hop Origins!!!! That’s why I’m like – F**k The Rock haters!

Whoa -whoa- whoa – Rock??!!! You had one last borough to go to? You forgot Staten Island homes???? The home of A Better Tomorrow! In stores on Warner Bros records December 2, 2014!!!!!

This is the part where the crowd should be chanting – WU-TANG! WU-TANG! WU-TANG! WU-TANG!!!!

15,000+ strong in Brooklyn chanting HOLY SH!T! HOLY SH!T! HOLY SH!T!!!! upon Rock’s presence!

Look at The Rock looking up and down at Lana… do you think he’s gonna ‘fix his jeans’???

What the hell was Rusev blubbering on about??? – IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT HE THINKS!!!!

OH SNAP!!! The Rock just quoted Jay-Z!!!! STC member Richard Selby is gonna love this!!!!

The Rock just slapped the sh!t out of Rusev!!!! He should have fixed his jeans to Lana though!!!!

You should have never told The Rock to Shut Up Lana! Now he got #SovietStreetWalker trending on twitter! Oh dear you know bad mouthing The Rock is baaaad news!!!

Right these are Anthony Benigno’s words: Not mine!

“With Alicia Fox now holding the coveted title of Paige’s Best Friend, it was only a matter of time before The Diva of Tomorrow and her batty BFF teamed up in an official capacity to torment the reigning Divas Champion, AJ Lee.”

I have an idea what ‘batty’ means over in the states, but in Jamaican terms batty means bottom, @$$.. backside… that sort of thing. you put ‘man’ at the end of batty and well a picture of Adam Rose or Darren Young or Dolph Ziggler will appear in the dictionary!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

What the rarse is this Emma doing? All this dancing nonsense? This ain’t Strictly Come Dancing fool??!!! This ain’t ballet?!!! This is WWE woman!!!! Look at AJ Lee… frustrated and sh!t… a fine woman like that should not be frustrated???????!!!!!

So w’happen, has Cesaro & Miz switched dance partners? Now The Miz could be fighting Sheamus for the US Title, while Cesaro could be fighting Ziggler for the IC? Meanwhile the crowd love Damien Sandow! Expect a face turn from Sandow somewhere down the road. The fans love his ‘stunt double’ antics!

Right IWC! F**k what you think you know. Last week, you assumed that Luke Harper is going solo… This week, that cryptic promo was as f**ked up as they come with Eric Rowan! The GRANT SAYS THIS: Don’t try to work it out… and that pregnant vision was mad disturbing… I think that all it is, is that the Wyatt Man dem have put extra creativity behind them… and it’s worries for everyone in the mid-card division at least!

You see what happen when you farce yourself in next man business Cena? Now Ambrose has gone to get a hot dog or two… and you’re there getting timberland boot stomped out by Randall, Seth and Glenn…

Wait a minute – I thought Ambrose went for a hot dog? He’s back and he’s brought the cart with him!!! I guess Cena, Glenn, Randall & Seth are hungry too… all that wrestling they be doing…

Oh hang on!!! He got ketchup & mustard as his artillery? Er… Randall… Glenn… turn back! You don’t want none of that!

Told ya!!! My fallen hero Kane & the evil Randall went from setting people on fire and ‘killing legends’ to being squirted with mustard & ketchup… To quote The Streets: Has It Come To This????

Oh lawwwd that must sting! Ambrose throwing a hot tub of onions over Rollins backbone!!! You know the onions have ben in that hot oil and sh!t!!!

OH SNAP!!!!! Ambrose use the spatula thing and clamped Rollins in his seedbag! Oh that’s it now – Sex life DUN!!!

Since I never saw this live, I can’t exactly judge this show… what I can say though… is The Rock’s appearance alone makes RAW automatically was better than the past two or three weeks… and I suppose WWE knew their ratings were in trouble… so they hit the emergency glass button! THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED!

RUSEV & LANA: Shame on you, when you step through to – the Ol’ Dirty Bastard – BROOKLYN ZOO!!!

And they’ve started! Oh snap! Stephanie is putting the QUITTERS on blast!!! See how she switches it up to Dean Ambrose though!!!! HA! HA!

May Paul Heyman interject??? Will he mention Phillipa’s name blatantly?!!! Nope he’s gonna talk about BRRROCCK LESSSNAR!

Well Seth Rollins is right…. no one wants to see Cena win the title, but by claiming that Brock Lesnar is the ‘BEST’, the crowd took that as an insult to Philipa…

So Seth is like, Ambrose, give back the briefcase with my cheque in there… Ambrose appears on-screen… he’s like – if yuh tink say your name bad man, come fe it nuh? And according to you IWC b!tches, John Cena just had to steal the limelight from Ambrose by attacking Rollins… I dun explained to you how Cena is in this storyline… y’all just hating… so The Grant Says – SHUT THE F**K UP!

HA! HA! Jamie Noble gives me joke! He wants  some sledge hammers to aid in retrieving the briefcase… you know NO-ONE wields that thing except for Triple TEEF!!!!

I’m glad Ziggler has killed that noise he was going on with R-Truth… Cesaro you are a don, I hope you defeat The Miz & Ziggler in this Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental Championship… babestation ain’t saying nuthin either… I guess it’s a quick game of Tekken!

Side note – I’m glad that this will be the last episode of Raw I’ll be watching via stream… this Wednesday – let’s get that Network! HEY! It better not be no £9.99! charge us the same you charge the states! No funny business knowing this dyam country!

In fact f**k Tekken – let’s post this pic of Stephanie with her fine self… just for no reason!

Steph Raw Chicago

Actually this wrestling contest is not bad! Plenty pinning predicaments! Great counter techniques! But damnit, Cesaro hit the Sho-ryu-ken on The Miz, Ziggler kicks down Cesaro and takes advantage of the pin and defends his title…

So who are these guys? Jamie Noble & his bredrin? Are they the new Patterson & Brisco??? HAHAHAHAHA!!!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

It’s okay people, my girl Sophia Lares is back on babestation… she’s on standby for when RAW comes with some stupidness…

I’m sick of stupid muthaf***az running up my inbox while RAW is on… what the f**k do they want at this time of night? Worse than that – I get someone running up my inbox telling me to ‘like’ his profile picture… I ain’t no battyman – get the f**k outta here with that sh!t!

WTF was that all about with The Wyatt Family? Most notably Luke Harper? What is this – a singles career launch??? Answers on a postcard please – Tweet me @MZATheInfamous, or hit us up at our FB group –http://www.facebook.com/groups/smacktalkcentre – Request To Join – Don’t Be a Weirdo!

Jesus have mercy LAYLA!!!! My god you look so f**kable! What’s this I hear – you have a new boyfriend???? I’m gonnaGRANT & LAYLA WWE2K15 find him… and SKIN HIM ALIVE!

Yo Jerry Lawler you still got it for lyrics! ‘Love is Grand, Divorce is 100Grand!’ I ought to remember that!

OH SNAP!!! Rosa’s extensions fell out her headtop!!! She might be the star of Total Divas, but this is RAW – where Layla is my star!!

Is it me, or does Dean Ambrose entrance music sound like that Puff Daddy tune??? Me cyan’t remember the name of it… I think it was for some film or something…

Oh snap! Ambrose is having a Chicago clearance sale??? He can’t do that surely?

WOW!! the crowd are chanting for someone other than Philipa Brukk!!!

Come on Patterson & Brisco!!! Do your job and get the briefcase!!!

Oh hang on… reinforcements!!! Looks like Ambrose wants no problems with these guys he calls ‘rosebuds’…. he’s going back up the stairs Shield style… he’s like – Seth Rollins – take your briefcase…what I wanna know is – why did Seth open that thing???? OH SNAP – what is that slimy sh!t coming out that messed up Rollins good suit??? He’s lucky it’s that and not what happened to The McMahons & the Spirit Squad back in 2006!

Even Randall & Glenn are laughing about it!!!! OH SH!T!!

First Swagger, now you wanna f**k with Mark Henry, Bo Dallas??? You don’t want to do that sir!!! Say what – Close the Hall Of Pain????? That’s only gonna keep the Hall Of Pain open BIG TIME!

Say what? Bo Dallas defeated Mark Henry???? What in the flying f**k???!!!!!

Shocked Undertaker 21-1 face2THAT’S NOT WHAT YOU DO HENRY???!!!! 

Suddenly Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak is irrelevant… Mark Henry lost to Bo muthaf***!n Dallas???? Oh HELL TO DA NAW!!!

That’s more like it!!!! Henry just f**ked up Bo Dallas backstage!!! Now THAT’S WHAT I DO!!!

Oh I get it…. will this Bella feud end in an I Quit match??? Hmmm….. I know y’all not interested… now putting Cameron & Eva Marie up against Brie Bella… is it REALLY a handicap match? If Tamina and Alicia Fox came out then I’d say yeah for sure…

Now look what you Bellas have done! Got the crowd chanting for JBL, Jerry Lawler & Michael Cole! Well it’s better than Philipa…. you know what? I think the crowd are finally come to terms with the truth… Note – AJ Lee hasn’t come out yet… was it a move by WWE for AJ Lee NOT to appear on Raw??? Or was it AJ Lee that thought – f**k that – I’m not about to bust my @$$ (Literally) out there only for the crowd to chant for a man who crosses his legs and whines like a b!tch… oh wait…. that’s my man…

GRANT BODY – P!!!

So hold on… Adam Rose & the Bunny are on commentary? And we got Slater, Gator and mini gator (Hornswoggle)? The Bunny actually has a WWE profile??? Ok this is the part where I watch babestation… F**K that – Chant Philipa’s name! You have my permission!

You gotta problem with Hip Hop JBL???? You gotta problem with me!!! Don’t let me come down there and Timberland Boot Stomp your @$$!

People are loving the Big Show! You know why? Because on Smackdown, Big Show punched Rusev through school buses! PPPPPPPP!!!! I’ve missed that super-move!

Hold up – Rusev can speak English??? Since when???!!!! SHUT UP!!!!

Rusev don’t want none of Big Show….after all that talk of breaking every bone in his body??? Rusev you got no barz!!!

OH NO! Big Show just pulled down the Russian flag! He can’t do that???? Big Show gonna be in trouble for sure! (yes I know Jericho, you disrespected the Brazilian flag and you got in trouble…)

NO Cena you didn’t just say that!!!! You can’t say Chicago is your type of town??!!!! That must sting!!!! I love the darts being thrown by the WWE superstars!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

But I gotta agree with Ambrose… the beef started with him & Rollins… it’s not your fight really… I mean it is to an extent but it’s so personal with Ambrose… so stop stealing Ambrose’s Yam & dumpling and get your own sh!t… you love your fruity pebbles don’t you? And by the way… your T-shirt is WACK! I don’t care if it’s promoting Cancer research or whatever!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

OH SNAP!!! AJ LEE IS HERE!!!! Is she gonna cut a promo??? Nope, she’s gonna fight! Better get my ear plugs…

Well Paige don’t want none of AJ Lee… so she sent Alicia Fox after her! er AJ… if I was you I would lose this fight…. and she has!!! Alicia hasn’t gotta go crazy all over Chicago!

Oh Lawwwd they beat down AJ Lee in Chicago… shot after shot after shot at Philipa… this is WWE firing shots at dude like his name is Scarface when he took 50 licks!

Shock! Horror! Now we gotta wait til NOVEMBER 1, for the WWE Network! Blodclart!!!! David Cameron what the f**k did you do??? I mean, WWE2K15 comes out at the same time! I’m going to see Common Live on London at that time! I don’t think it’s gonna work out….

Shout out to Hulk Hogan and all the ladies in the world that are putting boots2breastcancer…Show the world that you are proud of your t!++!£$! Don’t let the evil cancer take away your t!++!£$! We love your t!++!£$, and so should you!

It’s kinda funny how Glenn complains about Seth starting fires and he has to put em out… you see? My Hero Kane STARTS FIRES!!! I HATE GLENN DAMNIT!!!

I like Dean Ambrose’s hoodie… got that Anarky feel to it…. then you got the total opposite, Mr Fruity Pebbles himself…. considering it’s breast cancer awareness month, in the case of Cena, THE MILK’S GONE BAD!!!!

GRANT BODY – P!!!

Well well, Seth Rollins shut down another main event…. oh f**k!nhell look at Cena and Ambrose fighting over who should f**k up Rollins…see that’s what happens when you on that bullsh!t – RKO, CHOKESLAM, THEN A CURB STOMP – BLAOW!!!! Both Cena & Ambrose laid out, crowd chanting ‘Thank you Rollins’, and NO returning star… no Batista, no Bryan, no Philipa Brukk…. NOBODY… y’all been reading them muthaf***!n dirt sheets too much, and now y’all not smiling… YES, NOBODY’S SMILING… except ME!!! WHOEVER LOSES, I WIN BIATCH!!!!

THE JOBBER BLOGGER #126 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 24/9/14

Jobber-Blogger

The Jobber Blogger

I think this is the first Jobber Blogger in some time that has been late, but guess what people, I’ve been busy! So it does happen.

I myself only managed to watch Impact last night, and though I did think about attempting the second “Watch and Write” issue, I just wanted to take it easy and relax!

Probably a good choice, as it has calmed my initial rage from watching Impact, but the more I think about it, the more it’s coming back! Isn’t that exciting!? Yes it is!

Impact Wrestling LogoTNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 24/9/14

bluelineSo TNA is Total Nonstop Mess right about now. Everything is in crazy land, I don’t know if everyone who reads this is aware, but I shall let you in on what is happening without spoiling anything.

TNA have changed the landscape drastically, yes this concerns all of their Championships, the reason because they don’t have many guys left on Contract, least not a long term contract. Long term being any point to Summer of 2015, which is only a short window as it is.

So they have put the belts on those who are sticking around till at least then, which gives them some wiggle room should people decided to leave TNA rather than do the Pay-By-Appearance method.

I get it, current problems, no TV deal, everything is up in the air. But what this means, is that come Bound for Glory – most of the people you want to watch on the Show, and the matches with the Belts to be defended, yup, that won’t be happening.

Apparently the Japanese audience will be greatly offended and confused should they turn up to Bound for Glory without knowing what’s happened and everything won’t make sense.

TNA have ramped up their TV Tapings to cover to the end of the year I believe, or least will do by the time they get to Bound for Glory. Which means the BIGGEST PPV of the Year, the first time it’s taking place out of the United States, will feature no big matches, no big championship matches and be completely out of sync to what you watched on Television.

Which does beg the question – what’s the point.

This will be like a Special PPV or a “One night Only” TNA in Japan PPV rather than Bound for Glory.

I think they have announced some titles will be defended, I didn’t read, I don’t want to know the spoilers.

This brings us to the bigger problem, 2 Months worth of Impact Tapings packed with “Filler” moments and mainly Video Packages.

Which makes this week’s Impact the first of many to come, and I hereby announce it the start of TNF – Total Nonstop Filler.

I suddenly miss Hogan.

MVP vs. Low Ki

“Kurt Angle” had this great idea of a Gold Rush tournament. Now, I actually like the idea, I don’t like how it was tacked on.

It’s a shame this week’s Episode felt like a Televised House Show, because the Matches were actually excellent.

What I didn’t like was sitting through Video Packages of Last Week, then a stupidly long Video of MVP, then MVP taking a full length entrance, plus a Promo.

Low Ki then got his entrance, then a Video Package of Low Ki – yes the same one we saw recently. Then the match, which took 7 mins to get to.

If I wasn’t a committed TNA fan, I would have turned it off by now.

On the plus side, we had MVP vs. Low Ki. I don’t dislike MVP but I certainly don’t see this “massive potential” in the guy either. I think next to Low Ki he quickly looks a bit basic.

What I did like was MVP challenging Low Ki to the chops, which he delivered, to the point of actually making his Chest Bleed.

Low Ki had an impressive outing but MVP got the win with his “Drive By” kick.

Despite what I might have just said about the two guys, I do think MVP taking the win is the right call.

Robbie E vs. Tajiri

Robbie E had one of the very few backstage segments this week as he bragged out “dating” Velvet Sky and then being on the Amazing Race with Brooke, who we haven’t seen in Months, who he really is Dating. So I hope Brooke comes back and they let her and Robbie be an on air couple, I’m guessing the Amazing Race is a big deal? I don’t even know what it is.

I like Robbie E, I like him a lot, always have. I think he’s good at playing the joker, but he’s actually a very talented Wrestler and entertainer, so i was pleased to see him hold his own against Tajiri.

I also take back what I said about Tajiri, guy is impressive and very much on point. I can’t seem to take him seriously though. I almost look at him as if he’s not a real Wrestler, but I do think that’s because he was portrayed badly in the WWE for so many years.

Tajiri hit the Mist to the face of Robbie E and followed it up with a nice kick to the head for the Win.

Doubt Tajiri is sticking around much after BFG, but I’d like to see The Bromans be used a lot more, they are sticking around and they are good Talents.

bluelineAustin Aries vs. Knux

This was a match I didn’t expect to be going into my Match of the Year nominees. But hey, a Wrestling match is about great Wrestling, great crowd interaction and to mix them both together, you create the magic that is – emotion.

Aries and Knux put on a great showing and I don’t think I’ve ever seen Knux perform the way he did when he was against Aries. I think Knux is due some screen time, as is The Menagerie, I do like them and I freakin love Crazy Steve!

Aries muscled Knux up and dropped him with the Brain Buster for the win , so seriously, if you didn’t watch this match, watch this match!

It’s just yet another example that Austin Aries is the absolute best, no matter who he works with, you’re getting something special. He is literally as Legit as they come – and that’s why people love him. As long as he’s on the Payroll – he should be in the Main Events – that simple.

bluelineMagnus vs. Mr. Anderson

After dragging Magnus through some crap he didn’t need, it finally felt like Magnus was back to his “old self” again.

Though I do think he’s maybe a little dull at times.

Which means on the flip side – Anderson is far from Dull, if only at times lacking motivation, or least comes across that way.

Anderson is a guy who has great potential, he just needs support and a platform to do what he does best, and that’s be himself.

When he came back and had issues with Bully and Dixie – that felt exciting, the start of something new! But it didn’t last, they didn’t build it. I fully believe Anderson could be the key to something quite different, or if not vastly “different” from what we’ve seen, he certainly could be the key to something sorely lacking.

Another good solid match which saw a rather good counter into the Mic Check – which I still think is a naff move.

bluelineAbyss vs. Samuel Shaw

Abyss is finally looking better. I’m not a big fan of his new attire and mask, the Coat is alright, but now he’s hair come back a bit longer and he’s got a good beard going on – it suits the look.

I didn’t really get into his newer Theme Song – but thinking about it, that Theme might suit this current look better than his traditional one.

I’m just hoping Abyss gets another revamp and used stronger. I think it’s the same comment for most of the Roster – So much potential, just never used.

I like the pairing between Abyss and Shaw and that might even unfold in a good development down the line (hopefully).

Shaw managed to hit in a sneaky Chair Shot but fell victim to the Blackhole Slam right away and Abyss took the win.Abyss Phone blueline

Austin Aries vs. MVP vs. Tajiri vs. Abyss vs. Mr. Anderson

This feels like a Filler Jobber Blogger. Again, it’s not like this was a “BAD” show, it had some awesome matches. It just lacked the atmosphere and planning, it felt rushed and “it’ll do” to fill a week.

I honestly hope that they don’t do this for every week from now till January.

If they had put a little more into this show and produced it better it would have been fantastic with these matches that really bounced out at you.

It just didn’t take off as a show, the crowd seemed to have thinned out toward the end, which I’m not means they taped the matches at different shows, or literally people just left.

But as someone who has sat through multiple TV Tapings, it does wear a little thin.

It just felt like a house show.

Not much more to say about this match, I think if this was promoted a little better and produced a lot better, the tournament would have been really engaging.

I love tournaments.

Least it all ended in a great outcome- Austin Aries.

Aries takes the Win of this Gold Rush tournament and then next week he gets to chose what Title he wants to Challenge for.

blueline

Also in the show they filled it out with a Ladder match recap, a billed World Title Fall out which was the exact same Video Package they ran at the top of the show that just highlighted the main event. So it wasn’t a fall out, it was a clip reel.

To say this was the very last show of their “amazing” Summer in the City, why didn’t they run Video Packages of all the awesome moments that took place during the tapings in New York.

Dixie going through a Table, the World title matches, the Tag-Team Championship Series, Chris Malendez, Havok, lots and lots of material that could have made the show feel more meaningful.

Next week we finally get a new setting as TNA goes back to Pennsylvania.

Honestly, I miss the Impact Zone, I miss the stage, I miss the fireworks, I miss the production level.

Sure it was filled with Holiday goers and old people who obviously took a wrong turn, but it was special, it was “impactful”, it was TNA.

To think nearly 4 years ago TNA was about to explode, and it did for a short time. Since then it’s been going downhill, and now 4 years later, it seems to be falling apart.

Long Live TNA!

Here’s to a Revival in 2015!

Till then!
