Monday Night Raw #1064: October 14, 2013!!!

Now that the Big Show is unemployed (or is he? I’m about to find out) Triple & Steph say that he is unemployable… well The Grant says that is not true! He could actually be the  security for the job centre in the UK! Admittedly this would not benefit so-called job seekers that are scamming the system and if they try to get in the face of authority, they only need to say one thing: “BIG SHOW – KNOCK HIM OUT!!!” ……PPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!! Can you imagine the danger money Big Show would be paid? The other option, he was unfairly dismissed after all… take Triple and Steph to the employment tribunal! Sh!t if The Infamous Informer has done it once in his career (and won, I might add) Big Show can do it too!

Now there are petitions to bring Big Show back… how come there wasn’t one of these when AW got fired last year? Suddenly y’all care about the Big Show????

Racial man, racial!!! Enough of that sh!t!!! RAW #1064! HOL’ DAT – BLAOW!!!

WWF PROPA TINGZOH SNAP! This week’s Raw is from the same building that the very first Hell in a Cell match took place! And who won that epic war? HBShizzle!!!! Well barely… Undertaker f**ked him up BIG TIME in that match! Damn what did HBShizzle do to make Undertaker so mad back in the day??!!! Y’all already know!


St. Louis is also the hometown of the evil one himself, Randall Orton! Let me guess, he’s gonna warn HBShizzle to call the match right otherwise he’s gonna get kicked in his head??? Hold up – Randall can’t disrespect his own people can he???? ‘not bright’? Is he essentially calling them Jeremy Kyle Jabronies???


HBShizzle where are your manners???? Listen to Randall when he’s talking sh!t!!!! HAHAHAHA!!!!


Randall, I know you’re a legend killer and all that, but I gotta ask you – how are YOU gonna try to intimidate HBShizzle? This is the guy that was the referee in the Triple Vs Undertaker match at WrestleMania XXVIII – he ain’t sweating you I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT!


Oh SNAP!!! Randall had a match with The Miz scheduled, but The Miz thought – f**k that – I ain’t waiting for my crappy music to hit, I’m gonna rush Randall and f**k him up after he tried to f**k me up a few weeks ago!

Sorry Miz it ain’t the evil Randall you gotta worry about – it’s the more sinister Wyatt Family you gotta think about! they didn’t even say ‘We’re Here’… they just appeared, you looked as if to say – WTF? then Ranadall with an RKO – BLAOW!!!!!!

WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA!!! Wait a minute, Brad Maddox – How are you gonna put out a tag team championship match between the Shield and The Rhodes fam when the Usos are officially #1 contenders???? Shout out to Mike Knoxxx of the BDSIR Network for pointing that sh!t out too…. RACIAL MAN, RACIAL!!!

Don’t you just love when people fix each other’s ties and jackets etc on WWE?!!!! That’s what Paul Heyman be doing to Brad Maddox to sway him to add a bit of seasoning to the rematch at the Hell In a Cell PPV between CM Punk and Dryback… and rightfully so!

Maybe Maddox has added too much seasoning! Get this – there’s that good ol’ game WWE likes to play, it’s called Beat The Clock. If Ryback defeats R-Truth quicker than CM Punk defeats Curtis Axel, Paul Heyman chooses the stipulation. Conversely, if it is the other way round, Punk Midas chooses the stipulation…. LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

As much as the Infamous Informer loves JBL, he has to sword swing at him lyrically: YO JBL?

HowXavier Woods are YOU gonna disrespect Xavier Woods??? The man put out a petition to get Big Show back in effect, WWE stars have signed it such as The Bella Twins, The Miz and even John Cena, you sitting there talking about – what sort of name is Xavier, – That is the same name as the boss man in the X-Men Marvel comics you big dummy! Furthermore, this dude wields two degrees, a masters and soon to be a PhD, and you are gonna sit there and diss him? My bredrin named his son Xavier, and can make beats and the age of 2!!!! Do you want me to send Undertaker after you again? It can be arranged you borderline racist pig!!!!

Yes the Infamous Informer will cuss his own favourite stars if he has to! Only The Undertaker and The Rock are exempt from the rule!

Lawd have mercy Los Matadores Vs 3MB again???? F**K THIS SH!T!!!!

WTF did I just hear? That little Torito dude has a twitter account? You can follow him if you want but not the Infamous Informer!!!

…and the win streak continues for Los Matadores! I’m not impressed – they have only defeated 3MB like 1064 times!!!! (See what I did there???)

UH OH!!!!! Here comes Triple TEEF!!! How’s your jawbone rude boy? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Hear the crowd! “YOU GOT KNOCKED OUT!!!” You know what they wanted to say really!!!


I’m sorry Stephanie I’m still laughing!! Carry on what you were saying! Look at Triple TEEF’s face! WHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

They helped out with Big Show’s mortgage damnit! Big Show treats them with DISRESPECT and INSOBOARDINATION and YOU CHEER????!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

…and you internet wrestling d!ckheads say Stephanie can’t cut a promo… she said it – Triple ruled the Attitude era with an iron fist – don’t you mean an IRON HAMMER????

You can’t chant “What?” when Triple is talking???? THAT’S RUDE!!!!! He is the World Wrestling Federation DAMNIT!!!

Oh, it’s not the ‘What?’ chant that he doesn’t like… it’s the ‘YES!’ chant!!! Why you getting angry for Triple? You’re the one that’s TEEF!!!!!

So you mean to tell me that all that time Triple Teef wasn’t the bad guy??? Now he’s gonna go full-scale TEEF???? Oh dear we have done it now!!!!

Here comes the creator of the YES chant!!!! I assume he’s the one that’s gonna go through the most hell!!! Austin Vs McMahon ain’t gonna be sh!t now! This could bring it all back to TV-14!!!! (Ha look at you getting excited….you fool go sidung!)

Capacity crowd chanting YES! with their new hero! Look at Triple & Steph’s face! They look like steam is coming out of their ears!!!! WROOOOOOY!!!

Wait a minute! BERTIE! Why did he assault Danielson for no reason??? Oh SEEN! He’s his opponent? Ok let’s get it on!!! HAHA TRIPLE TEEF chanting YES!!! Oh no this is great!!!

You gotta love R-Truth for this! Knowing full well it’s a Beat The Clock challenge, he’s deliberately ramping about and greeting the fans, at the same time making Dryback mad! Haha R-Truth trickify!

Even Jerry Lawler loves it when the crowd chants ‘Goldberg’ every time Ryback is out there… I suppose it’s accWWE Goldbergeptable now that WWE have released the best of Goldberg matches and all that!

Now the crowd are chanting for JBL and Jerry Lawler! All they be doing is running joke on commentary! It’s only a matter of time before we hear ‘Michael Cole’!!! Go on fans you know you want to!

So now all CM Punk has gotta do is whupp Axel’s @$$ in 5:44 or less….well if he’s the ‘Best In Ah De Wurl’ I’m sure he can do it!

It’s better to give than to receive… so Stephanie decides to give Brie Bella an engagement present: a match against Tamina! YES! YES! YES! Stephanie is so kind!!! Now THAT is BEST FOR BUSINESS!

You know I look on how stunning my favourite Nubians – The Funkadactyls are and I think to myself… I so wished they were in the TV-14 era…. sure they would lose a bra & panties match but imagine that…. GOD DAYUUUUUUUM!!!!

I knew those muthaf***!n Real Americans would start on Los Matadores… the new tag team that the fans love and these muthaf***az wanna start on em… I hope they use their bullfighting skills that Vega taught them, use the knife they kill the bulls with and kill this Zeb Coulter muthaf***a! And the only reason the crowd are chanting ‘We The People’ is because of Antonio Cesaro!

All of a sudden Xavier Woods petition has been taken down from It’s because he’s black ain’t it?!!! Not to worry, the petition has been shared on social media and has gone viral – YOU CAN’T STOP US NOW!

SILENCE!!! Tamina Snuka is on… Go girl! DESTROY THAT BELLA WOMAN!!! I love Tamina’s new ring attire! Official bad gyal!!! I love my chick!

I actually like JBL’s defence here, Mike Cole’s like… why is AJ Lee allowed to be at ringside but Nikki Bella isn’t? JBL has the answer one time – Because the Bellas are TEEF – they use Twin magic – they swap places and the ref doesn’t see it and that’s how they win! VERY GOOD JBL! I will cuss if I have to but will compliment you if I have to! Like what Gordon Ramsay does in Hell’s Kitchen if you will!

YES! YES! YES! My girl Tamina mash-up Brie!!!! That’s what’s up! Now while Tamina drops the superfly move on Brie, allow me to put you on to this exclusive Facebook group run by my ninjas Jazz Kumar and Brent Armstrong, they recognize a Woman’s Worth, and they want to pay homage to Eva Marie, one of the newest divas on WWE and she has only had two wrestling matches, and based on her wrestling talent, she should be in the Hall Of Fame NEXT YEAR! YES! Above the likes of Randy Savage! The Ultimate Warrior! Even the Undertaker!!! Click on the pic below and be apart of it!!! HAHA!


OH SNAP!!!! CM Punk beat the clock! He had 12 seconds to spare! He could jump on top ropes and drop the Randy Savage elbow on Axel in that time for good measure! What’s the stipulation gonna be??? I say CM Punk Vs Heyman… neither Axel or Ryback can interfere and teef! Let’s hear it from Mr Midas…

Looks like the handicap match is running!!! That’s gotta please Heyman because that’s what he wanted yes??? Well er… no because it’s CM Punk Vs Ryback AND Paul Heyman inside HELL IN A CELL! Now that’s what I like to see! Paul Heyman sh!tting himself at the news!!!! Then these images follow…

Great wrestling contest between Bertie and Danielson even though it was a match set up out of spite by Triple Teef and Steph… but what’s Randall doing up on the titantron? I gotta bad feeling about this…

Good on Randall, he’s going to check on Brie, after all, she did get hurt by Tamina and AJ earlier…. he’s such a nice man isn’t he…..???? HE’S GONNA PUT IT IN!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Rather, it was just a trap and Danielson walked right into it… Brie was unharmed… Danielson walks right in the training room and Randall drops the ambush! Then he gives Brie one look as if to say this: “What’s your man gotta do with me? I ain’t tryna hear that see!!!” (Shout out to Positive K!)

So now the tag team championship match is No DQ???? Straight up The Shield’s alley! But to see Steph wrap her lips around Triple afterwards… GOD DAYUM!!! Anyone would think Triple might just tear her @$$ up in that room backstage! Well wouldn’t you????!!! I WOULD!!!!

Big ups to Michael Cole – he points out that the Usos are the TRUE #1 contenders to the tag team titles… so with that documented, Brad Maddox: YOU’RRRRREEE FIRRRRRRED!!!! Well at least that’s what I would do if I was the boss man, it would be BEST FOR BUSINESS!

Big ups to STC’s Negrodamus: The Shadfather – he did say that The Rhodes Vs The Shield at Battleground might as well have been the main event…now it’s the main event on Raw!

Hey TEEF – Dean Ambrose caught Cody’s leg to help his boys! (but it’s no DQ…oh snap!!!)

I was wondering when Dean Ambrose was really gonna get involved… it’s NO DQ – Triple put this on this ring for me and you! Take advantage man… take advantage!

Catch Goldust chair swinging! It’s all legal!!!! There’s no Dusty Rhodes this time! That’s the equalizer right there! I’m glad this wrestling match turned into an all-out ruckus! That’s what this is about rude boy!

This is why Roman Reigns is my favourite out of the Shield – Goldust getting speared through the barricade – BLAOW!!!!


Cody Rhodes & Goldust – NEW TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!!! BACKSIDE!!!! Did you see that Triple Teef? He was VEXXXXXXXXXXX!!!!! The crowd chanting YES! with the Big Show!


THE GRANT SAYS THIS: Even though it was a NO DQ match, don’t be surprised if Triple TEEF strips the Rhodes family of the tag team gold and gives it back to The Shield…. that could happen as early as Smackdown!

Monday Night Raw #1063: October 7, 2013

Smack Talk Centre-Raw

Monday Night Raw #1063: October 7, 2013!!!

Some so-called wrestling fans just DON’T GET IT, do they? Especially those that DID NOT PAY for the PPV by online streaming or watched it in the UK when on this occasion, it was free. So let me get this right so I can understand this: Triple Teef and Stephanie board a private jet and tweet that they gonna be at Battleground, Damien Sandow teases he will cash his cheque but doesn’t because he out-thought you idiots, RVD & Bertie had a crazy hardcore match, AJ Lee’s win represents wrestling skill and  no reliance on reality tv, Cesaro’s Giant Swing on Khali showcased more untapped potential, The Rhodes Family fought a heartfelt match and now Goldust is back on the roster, and the main event still has an uncrowned champion…. knowing that Hell in A Cell is the next PPV, and muthaf***az are STILL b!tching??? I realise what you d!ckheads must do….




Was it me or did you hear the Vincent Kennedy in Stephanie’s voice when she told Big Show to SHUUDUP!!!! Oh lawwwd somebody VEXXXXXX!!!! Big Show punched everybody through school buses at Battleground… maybe the Big Show needs to Get In The Chair!

Now, while Stephanie is here running Big Show down to the ground, Show delivers a gunshot – He knocked out Bryan because he was TOLD my Steph!!!!! So the idea was to screw Danielson out of the title to begin with!

Yo Steph! How you gonna play me girl? Tryna say that you and Triple wasn’t at Battleground??? Ladies & Gentlemen of the Smack Talk Centre, Powerbomb Pro Wrestling News and Came Amateurs UK, The Infamous Informer has OFFICIAL PROOF that Steph & Triple WAS at Battleground! I’m gonna let it out here exclusive on RePPiN4U: Represent The Real Hip Hop! You’re like ‘This is why I clicked this link!!!’ You ready???? HERE WE GO!!!

Stephanie McMahon@StephMcMahon 6 Oct

. @TripleH On our way to #Battleground

That’s your official twitter, is it not???? You are a corporate executive, are you not? So you just lied to the world on TV that you was not at Battleground???? Stephanie McMahon: GET IN THE BED!!!
Did Big Show just call Triple a ‘son of a b!tch’ husband???? GASP!!! You have just gained some balls now huh????
Steph to Big Show: What did five fingers say to the face???? SLLLLAAAAAP!!!!
Dayuuum she’s straight slapping him and Big Show is smiling about it! WTF??? Kick him in the d!ck Steph!
Well she did verbally…. YOURRRRR’E FIRRRRRRRED!!!!! I knew there was a catch when Goldust grabbed his contract! There was only room for one job after all! Look at the face of Steph! All I see is Vincent Kennedy!
So much for the free YouTube match, we get to see Dolph Ziggler Vs Damien Sandow again! Come on Sandow!!!! Use your brain to out-think the show off!!!
F**K!!! How could you let Ziggler beat yuh Sandow???? God damnit I would have called the Shield straight away to buss your arse….. and Ziggler’s for that matter!
Not liking that but lets talk about the finer things in life…. THE LADIES!!!!GRANT - BODY - P
Natalya, JoJo, Eva Marie in 12 t!tty action against Aksana, Alicia Fox and Rosa Mendes!
Was it me or did Natalya feel up Alicia Fox’s Bonita Applebum when she went for the roll up pin??? This is great! THIS IS WRESTLING!!
Wait a minute – I didn’t see what JoJo could do in the ring…. was that meant to be their in-ring début? I would ask for answers on a postcard or tweet me at @MZATheInfamous but what good would that do when you muthaf***az are queueing at the toilet? Men SHOULD NOT be queueing – that’s a female trait! (No disrespect to the ladies of course…you know Grant loves you!!!)
Ok Stephanie baby girl…. you gotta fire Anthony Benigno: the journalist that writes the Raw reports on You know why??? Look here I’ll show you…
“Make it dos for Los Matadores, who followed up their début victory over 3MB with a second win over a new permutation of the rockers’ ranks:”
Now I watched Smackdown last week, and Los Matadores defeated 3MB there too.. so that makes it TRES victories!!!! Stephanie… you know what to do… and while you’re at it hire the fried chicken eating, supermalt guzzling, styling & profiling, hip hop reppin, diva loving Infamous Informer as your new writer!!!
Ok so let me get this right so I can understand this: Dryback didn’t like the fact that CM Punk punched Ryback in his d!ck so he could get the win at Battleground??? So I take it you don’t like Chyna? Triple Teef? Ric Flair? THEY INVENTED THAT MOVE! (Er no they didn’t it was Johnny Cage) (actually no it was scorned women…) alright – alright you have a valid point there!
So here’s Dryback calling out the Wolverine while Curtis Axel and Paul Heyman are in the ring, while we know CM Punk will go out swinging and not care, another joins Punk and these two have something in common: THEY SPEAK THE TRUTH! R-Truth come cross! Ok playas, it’s gonna be a tag team match!!! God Bless Teddy Long!
Is it me or are WWE pushing R-Truth lately? Bear in mind that he didn’t win the Intercontinental Championship at Battleground? R-Truth defeats Curtis Axel in the tag team match… I’ve asked myself that a lot in this blog lately! IS IT ME??

Wait a minute…. didn’t the Wyatt Family sacrifice Kofi Kingston at Battleground? Here he is fighting Randall like nothing happened to him…. we haven’t seen my hero Kane in WEEKS!!!! Yeah I know he’s on his See No Evil 2 sh!t but lets keep it storyline shall we wrestling fools???!!!

One thing I’m surprised at – The voices were not in Randall’s head – it seemed as if he showed ‘mercy’ to Kofi! He didn’t kick him in his head, he didn’t set up the chair in between Kofi’s neck…. nothing! Maybe he would have done but Danielson rushed the ring and attacked Randall! Now THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! BRING THE RUCKUS! THEY HATE EACH OTHER! BRING DOWN THE CELL!!!! SHOW NO MERCY!!!!

Hmmm… should this be the Hell In A Cell theme song for the STC/Powerbomb???

Oh my god who let Vickie Guerrero in here? Why isn’t she fired??? Was somebody baking pizzas again??

Hold up, wait a minute – Bertie must defend his World Heavyweight Title against who??? John Cena???? Hang on – wasn’t he injured for like 6 months??? It’s only been two months!!! No no no this is not right!!!! What happened to #1 Contender spot??? What did Bertie do to deserve this?

John Cena comeback

Ok I speak to the entire wrestling world, fans, IWC, everybody (yes even the IWC we must unite as one here – ) I’m not the biggest John Cena fan in the world, I don’t dislike him either… but Cena MUST LOSE at the next PPV! We MUST BACK BERTIE IN UNISON! Either that or if Cena wins we force Sandow to cash in his cheque! We must set a twitter trend!!! #SANDOWCASHIN!

Look W’happen – Ricardo Rodriquez just pinned Bertie! SHOCK! HORROR! SHAME! DISGRACE! Now look what you’ve done Vickie, Cena…. you made Bertie brukk up Ricardo’s arm with the steel chair… are you proud of yourselves now? Cena just couldn’t keep away could he? He just couldn’t let Danielson & Randall get their shine…. STC member Singer Manny is right – the man is selfish tuh-rarse!!!!

The Real Americans Vs Santino & Great Khali: So good you just had to see it twice!!!! Er WWE you’re not helping giving away free matches like this! You think I would let the fans see this again? They should have seen it the first time ah bumbaclart!!! F**k it – LET’S SEE IT AGAIN! AH YEAH AGAIN & AGAIN!

Even racist bigots know how to have fun! Check it, Wack Swagger throws Hornswoggle into the ring, Cesaro goes for the Giant Swing… and ‘does his back in’!!!!! HA! HA! I like that!!!

The Wyatt Family said that they are gonna get em all… now it looks like The Miz is next!!! I don’t consider The Miz a ‘hero’…. GET HIM WYATT!!!! KILL HIM!!!!! Oh no! Just like Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Miz got away in the transport module! THE GRANT SAYS THIS: The Miz and Kofi Kingston must combine their force for the time being against these guys, and if the fire explodes and my hero Kane returns… then they even aren’t they!!!

Ok Well done WWE for messing up my prediction that Big Show was gonna be added into the championship match, nah really I mean that! Your job is to throw the fans off every time! Now Randall and Danielson must fight in the Cell, with a guest referee? Who is it gonna be? As much as I rate Booker T he has come off with some bullsh!t lately… some sh!t that black people would not approve so he’s disqualified, I don’t know where Bob Backlund is going with his nutty self, Linda McMahon couldn’t be senate so what makes him think the WWE Universe gonna vote for his crazy @$$? Somebody get a straight jacket for this muthaf***a!!! Yeah imagine him putting the chicken wing on either Randall or Danielson…. that’s gonna work out well isn’t it?

Now… Shawn Michaels… he’s the man for the job! If he can officiate the Hell In A Cell match between Triple and Undertaker – he can officiate ANY match in my book. Oh no they got HBK to plug the WWE app! The way he said it… so sarcastically! Vintage Shawn Michaels muthaf***a! And thank God he had a shave! I respect the beard but HBK’s was unacceptable quite frankly!

Vote for HB-Shizzle???? Wait a minute – you’re not a hip hop head Shawn!!! Like I haven’t seen you throw up your W… you always did the crotch chop and sh!t!!!

Never mind the Shield assaulting Daniel Bryan, Cody Rhodes & Goldust – wasn’t the Big Show fired???? Did he Sean PPPPP the security through school buses???? He’s not supposed to be here!!!!

Look at Triple TEEF hiding behind the Shield!!!! HAHA YOU PANSY!!!! I thought you were the best of the best??!!!!

Hang on, it seems The Shield may not be able to stop the juggernaut that is The Big Show! Triple is hoping that the Shield weaken him so that he can back off his jacket, loosen his collar and cuff links and beat down The Big Show! Look at Triple screaming orders! “FINISH HIM”!!!! Yo this ain’t Mortal Kombat muthaf***a!!!

OH SNAP! The Big Show took out The Shield! Your bulletproof vest ain’t sh!t Triple!!! Yuh goose cook now! PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!! Triple TEEF just got punched through school buses!!!! Look at the crowd!!!! All you needed was Good Ol’ JR and the glass to smash!!!! Danielson standing over Triple and the YES chant heard worldwide! I knew I had trouble sleeping last night! OH SH!T!! Danielson fixed Triple’s Tie!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Now that’s ill!!!!

THAT WAS THE GREATEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN! But the question remains! How come Big Show suddenly had the balls to stand up to Triple? How come he deliberately got himself fired? Is he really fired? Or did he sign a new iron clad contract with somebody else behind Triple’s back? You gotta think these things!!!

Just to end this blog, lets slap a big old pic of that Sean P punch to Triple by The Big Show!!!

The Jobber Blogger #70 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 3/10/13

October 7, 2013 by DiVineDiablo

Jobber Blogger logo2

Back to Ye’ Ol’ Mondays! Aren’t they fun, and no, I haven’t been working this Weekend, just how things have fallen. I knew I had Monday evening free to Write it up, and of course IGN’s own Matt Fowler doesn’t get the Wrap-Up online till Tuesday, of course he does mainly Cover Raw, but I like to look at it as a One Up regardless!

I have been giving my loyal “fans” some thought this past week, also because Jobber Blogger Super Fan – Linda, didn’t leave feedback from last week, so that’s a rather Hefty Black Mark against her name now. I’m sure she won’t take that seriously.

Also “Blobs” just don’t seem to cut it as a Snappy Enough name to continue the Theme of what I was going for. I am, however, The Jobber Blogger, so I would like to now claim that my Loyal Fans are, Blobbers! Yes, it’s a much more sensible title that I didn’t just randomly think of on the spot.

Speaking of randomly thinking of things and also rambling about things on the Spot, behold the remainder of this Blog!

Impact Wrestling Logo


I’m sure everyone noticed this, but the “Previously on Impact Wrestling” Voice Over Guy, and of course TNA’s usual Voice Over Guy  was different this week. And I shall be the very first in saying “he sucked”. And let’s leave it at that.

I for one would think I could do a good VO for TNA’s video packages, of course I would try and read it like a Half Arsed Solid Snake with grizzly throat pronunciations and strange face pulling. Long Live David Hayter!

Keither Sutherland Image

 AJ Styles’ kicks off Impact this week, and continues to use his “Evil Ways” theme for the opening of his Entrance. Something really awesome about this Theme is just how quickly it numbs the crowd into Silence. I think that is a testament to AJ’s current position. AJ had a few things to say, number one that he likes Hulk Hogan, which he has in fact come forward in interviews and said Hogan has been nothing but Positivity since he joined TNA, and he has stuck around for 4 Years, he is only looking at leaving now purely because TNA might not resign him. AJ was out to talk about Bully Ray, and this marks the first time they have actually really acknowledged each other since AJ won the BFG Series.

TNA continue to push the fact that AJ is not under contract, which I highly doubt, least if he is not, then he will be agreed to something, I am sure of it. Still with AJ having “nothing to lose and everything to gain” he declares he is “All In” against Bully Ray.

Bully made an appearance to talk back at AJ about how AJ claimed he “Hopes to Win”. I honestly don’t remember him saying that, but I’m sure it was in the script. Still, AJ arranged to have Samoa Joe battle Bully Ray in the Main Event, which seems a little odd. It’s like Bully needs to prove himself, rather than AJ taking the fight to Bully. Still, it looks as if AJ is creating a “Old School” TNA Faction, his “Band of Brothers” and Samoa Joe is at the top of that list.

 Kenny King and Chris Sabin vs. Manik and Jeff Hardy

So this was a little unexpected. It did actually take me a little while to think who would be teaming with Manik, seeing as Aries was Ring-Side. Then of course it makes perfect sense to have Jeff be that guy, seeing as Manik’s “Dream Match” a few weeks back was with Jeff.

I honestly found it hard to fathom why King was in this match, least with how it ended. I for one am a big Kenny King fan, and I am glad to see him back, but he does seem to be used as a “Filler” currently. Either way, I was also surprised he didn’t have his head bandaged up from his Match against Aries, which only took place an hour or so before this one (taped on the same night) which of course led to the wound being re-opened.

A good solid match overall with Sabin continuing his “Heel Ways” but the finish came with Manik doing his front knee drop thing, and Jeff following that up with a Swanton Bomb for the Win. Sabin then attacked both Manik and Jeff, and Aries ran in the ring to attack Sabin. I was expecting a One on One Sabin vs. Aries match, but instead Aries challenge Sabin to fight himself, Manik and Jeff Hardy in a Four-Way Match. Which I don’t think is quite how it always works. And then Jeff Took it up a Notch, BAM! By making it an Ultimate-X Match, which Jeff has never competed in. So basically, both Aries and Jeff made themselves an X-Division Championship match at Bound for Glory, and poor Manik had to go along. Apparently he Agreed, but of course he would. My point was, what happens to Kenny King now? Is he just back on the Side-Lines? And why does Sabin get to be a Jerk and get Two Title Matches back-to-back. He jumped Manik one week, got a Title Match the next, and now he acts like a Jerk to annoy Three Guys, and they include him in a Championship match just to get revenge. Wrestling Logic, how I love Thee!

Book of Logic Image

One of my favourite scene’s of this week’s Impact was Hogan and Sting shooting the breeze backstage. Sting saying he has Hogan’s back, and both of them discussing Dixie Carter’s “Power Trip”.

Dixie’s assistant then hands Hogan a Watch, which he “HULK’S UP” to Tear Through, and rips the top ribbon, and then the bottom of the Box off, before he just lifted the Lid to reveal a Watch.

Though Hogan’s line of “She is worse than Bischoff… he never gave me Anything” was priceless.

Magnus vs. E.G.O – Gauntlet Match

After EGO’s continual assault on Magnus he has taken it upon himself to Single-Handily defeat them all one after the other to prove himself the better man. It’s been a running thing now to have Magnus lose and for him to take that loss hard.

First up was Christopher Daniels, who really doesn’t get much chance to Showcase his abilities, because Daniels’ is fantastic between the Ropes. After a BME Attempt, Magnus’ caught him with his Foot, and then dropped him with a Driver (Magnum Driver?) to pick up the Win.

Of course next out was Kazarian, who yet again is fantastic between the ropes. But it was Magnus with the “Kingsland Cloverleaf” that led him to a Submission Victory. Also whilst on the topic, the Texas Cloverleaf has always been one of my favourite Submission Holds, and Kingsland Cloverleaf has an awesome ring to it. So kudos for that!

And last but not least, Bobby Roode. Before Roode made his way into the Ring, Kaz hit Magnus with a Low-Blow, a good back and forth match between the two, but in the end it was Roode with an “Ankle Lock” funny enough, to which he also lay down and applied the leg scissors for the Win. It was a Blatant “Kurt Angle” Finisher, which I am sure is planting Roots for Angle’s Return. What annoys me about this is that it makes Bad Influence look Weak, and they are far from it. Let’s be honest, Magnus has just become a more “Main Event Player” since the BFG Series. Put him up against AJ Styles and Magnus comes across the Under-Dog, yet TNA is built on AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels, and Daniels has and can beat AJ, which means he has the better chance of defeating Magnus. I know the logic behind it, but still, to have them defeated for Roode to be the “Big Dog” of the Pack, is kind of Silly. Roode is the Cemented Main Event Star in EGO, but Kaz and Daniels are top contenders in their own right and more than capable of beating Magnus in a Singles Match, rather than being defeated back to back.

Either way, Magnus stood up after yet another Loss and was treated with a good reaction from the TNA Crowd, Magnus of course flipped out and through yet another Strop. Which is when Sting decided to come and calm him down.

What followed was much better than I anticipated. Magnus, after Months and Months of being called “the future” of Wrestling, obviously just fell short of Winning the “big one”. And with everyone “seeing “it” in him” he doesn’t see it in himself. The whole thing was cleverly crafted, obviously Sting went on to talk about grabbing the opportunity, and Magnus saying he fell just short of it and that Ric Flair was who put Sting on the Map, and who is going to put Magnus on the Map. Which is when Sting offered up the Challenge of he facing Magnus.

It was well done, though Sting’s “ME!” came a little out of No-Where, the idea of Magnus vs. Sting is great, I actually hope they can have a big “Put him on the Map” type of Match. I’m sure it will be surrounded with Magnus turning Heel and joining Dixie Carter, or at least turning heel against Sting. Time will tell.

EGO had an awesome backstage Segment with Kaz and Daniels singing Roode’s “Off The Chain” Song, and then dropping the Bombshell that next week they are inducting Roode into EGO’s Hall of Fame taking the spot light from Angle’s BFG Induction. For one, who cares if they have their own ceremony, two TNA’s HOF is dumb and stupid, I can admit that, and everyone can see it’s their way of trying to Grab any kind of Glory away from the WWE First. And with a Company whose owners are considering selling the business, when you’re future is unsure, why do you have a Hall of Fame?

Brooke vs. Velvet Sky – #1 Contenders Knockouts Championship Match

First of all, Chris Sabin didn’t want to come out and help Velvet, that might be because he was about to go shoot the next 118 Ad

Sabin 118

And the biggest mess of all, Brooke Tessmacher is now simply “Brooke”.  I don’t have a problem with them dropping the Tessmacher name, it’s dumb and crap and they might as well just name her “THE SLUT!” because Tessmacher sounds like a Porn Name. Her Real Name of Brooke Adams is an awesome name, why not use that?

Before the match got started Lei’D Tapa turned up, BROOKE!!! ran off, and Velvet got the crap kicked out of her. It was a good debut, though it perhaps could have done without this

TAPA Tongue

Either way, having Lei’D Tapa debut like that was Strong, sure she’s going to be compared to Awesome Kong, but I’ve always found Kong overrated. Tapa’s debut would only be better if she hadn’t already turned up in a more “Human” form via Gut Check, this kind of Debut works much, much better!

Speaking of Debut’s, we even got our first “glimpse” of Ethan, and personally, I loved it! But words don’t do it justice:

Samoa Joe vs. Bully Ray

It was a rather odd idea having this match, my thinking is they wanted to show an alliance between AJ and Joe, but if AJ leads a new Old School TNA Faction, and Bully Ray or Anderson leads The Aces and Eights, and then there’s EGO and Main Event Mafia, TNA is breaking up into Factions. Too many Factions!

Regardless, Joe is looking more Old School, which I’m sure is no coincidence, he and Bully went back on forth in a good match. In the end it was Hebner who got taken out, Joe made Bully Tap (yay predictable!), Bully got his Chain, hit Joe, Hebner saw it, Bully got DQ’d.

Bully then threw Hebner to the floor and proceeded to removed the Matt’s on the outside to expose the Concrete to Pile-Drive Samoa Joe onto. This is when AJ jumped the Audience Barrier and attacked Bully, then retreat to Celebrate in the Crowd.

Yes, AJ got kicked out of the Building earlier on in the night by Dixie Carter, which would be better if he and Bully talked, Carter threw him out, then AJ made a deal with Hogan to get Joe to fight Bully. That would make more sense. Either way, doesn’t matter.

AJ’s celebration in the Crowd is also reminiscent of CM Punk, still, AJ has the added bonus of being the Face of TNA, and issuing in a possible and much requested Change for TNA.

Hulk Hogan’s Decision

Hogan making his choice of either being a Team Player or not was the Theme for this week’s Show. Obviously the ending was what they were building to, but what it was really seemed a little dull for an entire theme to be based around. I mean Dixie didn’t really give him much of an ultimatum, nor did she give him a time frame.

The whole segment seemed to be a little flat, even with the “pay off”, but basically Hogan blabbed about how he’s not happy how Dixie has been doing her Business, but he gets it. And that her “offer” whatever the hell it was, was an amazing offer, for somebody else, and he quits.

Her offer was pretty much work with me to run things, which wasn’t really much of anything to be fair. And yes, Hogan’s contract was set to expire, and both parties are looking for him to Re-Sign but it all comes down to Money. So Hogan quitting is just a way to get him off of TV should they not come to a deal. I actually think Hogan as a new Aces and Eights President to battle Dixie would be cool. The main issue I find, is I think Hogan is a team player, I don’t know how much of this “backstage heat” is legit or not. The fact is, I think having Hogan paid to be an On-Air character is limited. A role of GM is good, sure, but he’s not Great at it, nor I don’t think he is needed, he would be better used elsewhere. Or they should have a bigger plan for him than just in the role of GM.

Still, say what you will, I would prefer it to see Hogan stay with TNA, his name is priceless in gaining any professional attention, either from Fans and of course from Marketing to Business Deals.

Not to mention having Dixie cling to his Leg down the Entrance Ramp was a great touch. Though it is funny how quickly the Audience has gone against her, and how quickly she has been reduced to a Tramp, the phrase “Take a Ride on the Dixie Train” did wonders to the Crowd. Now she’s a grovelling, clueless, rich, sleazy mature woman. But, she is very convincing on Air, and I actually think I prefer her in this Role, and going forward, that could be Pivotal for TNA.

Good things one would hope are around the Corner!

Can’t wait for Bound for Glory where they really Shake Things Up!

Till Then,

Dan Wilkinson

Monday Night Raw #1062: September 30, 2013!!!

What’s this I hear? You can’t get online on GTAV? What’s all the complaining and b!tching for? Consider yourself lucky your PS3 or XBox 360 failed on you with the red/yellow light of death! I thought the streets would be quiet like when England plays Germany in the world cup! Now you are forced to socialize, or even worse, read this blog and hear me diss your favourite wrestlers – YES it’s the Hip Hop reppin, fried chicken eating, Supermalt guzzling, stylin’ and profylin’, diva loving, wrestling fan hating Infamous Informer!

Dangerous ground
Tre pound seven spin around for my bredren the clouds come down
War and peace, I take it to the street
Land shark on my lawn chop the thumbs off a thief! 

En route to Battleground! RAW #1062! HOL’ DAT – BLAOW!!!


Wanted to know where Big E Langston disappeared to? Well here he is!!!! CM Punk wanted a fight, well he got one alright!

…watching this wrestling contest, all it is, is that it’s showing that if CM Punk can defeat Langston with the Go To Sleep super move, he can do that to Ryback at the Battleground PPV… well The Grant Says….. No no no I don’t do predictions here! I get behind the camera to talk predictions so be on the look out for that! All I do here is run joke where appropriate!!!

I’m sorry I don’t understand the sh!t Bray Wyatt and his fam be talking… Kofi Kingston had a steel chair in his hand as if to go Jafakecan and say ‘Unno stop your noise bwoy and tek some beaten in your head-cup!!!’ With 6 matches confirmed for Battleground there must be a segment between Kofi and the Wyatts surely…. Kofi I think you will need help though! Where’s that dude who speaks ‘the TRUTH’???? I mean, he got that ‘Little Jimmy’, the Wyatts got that ‘Sister Abigail’… better call your bredrin Kofi!!!


Wolverhamptons Last Outlaw

Ok it’s the moment y’all been waiting for (Well I wasn’t waiting quite frankly…) It’s the début of those Los Matadores… first thing, let Lillian Garcia announce you with her Spanish fly @$$! What the f**k is up with that bull???? This is some BULLSH!T!!! Pun intended!!!! (nah Grant give em a chance – you don’t wanna be like them IWC idiots….) yeah true say! Let’s watch…

Ok so they got some kid called El Torito, and they got some impressive super moves…. nice! It’s only a matter of time before they feud with those idiotic so-called ‘Real Americans’… I’m not feeling the entrance theme though… and what’s with the pink attire? not feeling that either… I don’t care if it’s #RiseAboveCancer, you can support the cause without having to wear pink! Well anyway, this is what their entrance should really be like… yo check it…

Play this music, and I’ll be over with the Los Matadores!!!! Come Rosa Mendes! Strictly Come Dancing with me! Do the Lambada!!!

So they are finally called ‘The Authority’… no need to call them the ‘Corporation’… F**k that, I’m gonna call em how Eric Cartman calls em… The Authoritaaah!!!!

WWE Battleground 2013

WWE Battleground 2013

So hold up, last time I check Steph, wasn’t there only one job???? Now you’re saying there are now two jobs??? Yo I wanna job! I’m studying Journalism! One of my modules involves getting work experience! Sh!t I’ll do this sh!t for free! Er wait, All I need is a new PS3, WWE2K14, a new TV to play it on, some Wu-Wear, and some food inna mi belly at night!

This is the storyline I am engrossed in though, the Rhodes family. Admittedly I wasn’t so hot on the Rhodes until NOW. So this is how it goes down, the Rhodes will face The Shield at Battleground. If they win, they are employed with WWE. They lose, that’s the end of the Rhodes family… and Dusty Rhodes joins them in the job centre? So wait there… Dusty is working for WWE as well? I don’t understand that Triple.. Dude is like – 68 – isn’t he already retired? Furthermore, what if Dusty works for somewhere else??? Erm…Hexplain yourself Triple!!!

I don’t think Triple needs to explain himself at all – The Shield come and explained it for them!!!!! Triple Powerbomb into the canvas – BLAOW!!!!! But wait… suppose The Shield LOSE at Battleground???? How are they gonna report to the Authoritaah???? OH BOY OH BOY!!!

Er… why are the crowd chanting ‘CM Punk’ while Curtis Axel and R-Truth are fighting??? Oh I just answered my question did I??? Oh ok!!!!

Now they’re chanting ‘Boring’???? Er Punk Midas…. you might have to send for the Cult Of Personality here!

OH SNAP!!!!! HERE WE GO!!!! Why you getting worried Heyman? Isn’t your lover Dryback gonna save you this time? I’m sure he will!!! (Shout out to STC member Icy Fresh!)

As for you Axel… you’re there getting fired up like a fool and you forget that R-Truth still in the ring! Laid you out – BLAOW!!!! That means he’s liable to take your I.C. Title!

Look at Heyman! He’s like – ‘ah you got me!!!! Now let me go and just wipe my doo-doo bottom!’

Big ups to R-Truth for stating he wants that title, and getting that fine @$$ Renee Young to say ‘What’s Up!!!’ I’d be like – Renee what’s up wit you girl??? wanna Come Dine With Me??? Yam & dumplin, Rice & peas, chicken, they good for your hips girl!

Before I continue on with my favourite part of the show I wanna give a shout out to WWE Hall Of Famer Trish Stratus who has just given birth to Baby Maximus! Big respect to her, not so much respect to her baby father who hasn’t wrote that book I asked him for yet! (What book?) Yeah the book of him engaging in coitus with Trish! How many wrestling fans the world over have dreamt of that and this guy has LIVED IT?!!!!!!

Dayuum Alicia Fox you have put some meat on that @$$ haven’t you! And your fighting style has much improved! You wanna tribute video like Trish??? Join the queue!!!!

Big ups to Brie Bella on that win… so what is that super move called? the Bella factor? I also find it amusing that one minute Nikki Bella was in crutches and could hardly walk and now she’s back in them clear heels!!!! Girl you NASSSSSTAAAAY!!!

I could talk about the Alberto Del Rio vs Zack Ryder match, but nah – f**k that lets talk about this instead… Well it looks like bad news for us Undertaker fans, those cryptic #RestInPieces tweets by WWE was not talking about a return, but from what I made out, this Todd McFarlane dude has something to do with it… I think he’s bringing Undertaker to the comic book franchise! Now I’m not a comic book head.. but I wouldn’t mind reading that good sh!t!

OH SNAP!!!! Tell me I’m not hearing right! Is Paul Heyman that much in love that he wants to make an honest man out of Dryback???? OH MY GOD NO HE’S TOOK HIM BY THE HAND!!! What are we teaching our kids???? STOP THIS MADNESS!!!

“Ryback… you big bad ‘beautiful’ man will you become a Paul Heyman Guy????” WWE is confusing the kids!!!! This is disgusting! The WWE ‘Universe’ does not support it! NO! NO! NO! Like Daniel Bryan!!! Before Dryback said the dreaded Y-word, The Cult of Personality does not approve! Jumps over the barricade and…. WHOA!!! He mash-up him knee???? Must be a trick surely!!! The doctors took long enough to come out and check on him! He’s a Wolverine….use your healing powers Punk what’s wrong with ya!

Ha-haaaaaaah!!!! He is WOLVERINE! There was nothing wrong with his knee! Used it as bait so he could somehow reach for the kendo stick and lick down Heyman, Axel and Dryback with it!!! Good trick CM Punk but you gotta come better than that – Mark Henry’s retirement speech was superbly done!

YES! YES! YES! Ziggler lose to The Shield again!!!! Are you jabronies satisfied now that Ziggler is WACK??? he can’t beat them! I feel it for the Usos though, #1 contenders for the tag titles – but can’t face them at Battleground because of the Rhodes family B.U.T. I can’t complain, the Rhodes storyline is red hot!

You’ll never guess what, I’m gonna big up The Real Americans! (GASP!!!) I know! How can you NOT respect Cesaro’s giant swing? It is incredible! Cesaro – just do the right thing and turn face against Wack Swagger and Zeb Coulter, who I’ve also gotta big up because they are reppin the pink for the fight against Cancer…. well to me they are pu$$yholes anyway so they got the right colours on! Seriously there is NO NEED to wear pink in the fight, as long as you contribute and support, you ain’t gotta wear pink… f**k that sh!t! I’m the Infamous Informer and I approve this message!

Oh no Cesaro threw the snake away (Santino’s prop)… how is Santino gonna win??? He has to rely on his wrestling skills now!

Oh SNAP – surprise pinfall and Santino got him!!!! HA! It’s all about this Italian fist!!! GWARN SANTINO!

The latest Big Show episode has brought me to a conclusion I should have seen a long time ago… This is leading to Big Show Vs Triple Teef… I thought it was probably Triple Vs Daniel Bryan… now I’m not sure which one is coming first… Apparently the po-po was gonna arrest Big Show for wilding out until Stephanie put the brakes on… saves Big Show from getting arrested but tells the po-po that she talks to show’s wife and she tells her that his sexual prowess is lacking as well???? This is getting out of hand surely! You can’t say them tings!!!! Big show sees the Triple H Thy Kingdom Come canvas on the wall and proceeds to give it the Sean P treatment….unfortuantely Show I have… well rather Bruce Lee has a few words for you…

Uh-Oh!!!! Er Randall how are gonna go there by bringing Brie Bella into this???? That’s personal rude boy – this is not what’s best for BUSINESS!!!! Oh I get it… you fancy her don’t you!!!!  You want to PUT IT IN!!!! Because you have no pum-pum in your life right now!!! You can pick any woman you want Randall – STC member Dawn Bayley will sacrifice her fiancé just to have her way with you!!

It’s all out ruckus now! Randall practically said to Danielson that he would f**k Brie better than he can! Er Brie, why you coming down to ringside for? I know you wanna defend your man, but all you have done is put the voices in Randall’s head…. they chat to him!!!!

Brie – don’t just stand there – find a kendo stick and lick down Randy! Look what you made him do, set up Danielson on the announce table – RKO – BLAOW!!!! It’s no good telling Randall to leave him alone – Randall be like – you want me to leave him alone? then come and suck this c@ck!!!!

Just think – it could have been worse – Randall could have kicked Danielson in his head…

Dangerous ground
Tre pound seven spin around for my bredren the clouds come down
War and peace, I take it to the street
Land shark on my lawn chop the thumbs off a thief…..muthaf***a!!!!









The Jobber Blogger #69 – TNA: Impact Wrestling – 26/9/13

September 30, 2013 by DiVineDiablo


Jobber Blogger logo2It was inevitable that one day we would reach this “infamous” number. I’m sure Stan Lee had the same reservations when he wrote “Amazing Spider-Man #69” though he did (unbeknownst to him) name Peter’s love interest after Marijuana.

I do wonder if I could sell my “Jobber Blogger” Themed T-Shirt ideas to my craving “Blobs”, but part of me feels I just don’t have the right mix. That and a limited audience currently.

Sure, I got to talking about T-Shirt printing and credible business ideas after talking about sexual numbers and drugs, what’s wrong with that? It’s not like I make random, controversial or stupid remarks on a Weekly basis!

Don’t give me that face!

Yes, that’s the one!

We all know I am more along the lines of trite, conceited and a little bit crap really.

But like any healthy diet, you need a good dose of Crap in your life, and that’s where I step in!


Impact Wrestling Logo


Impact hailed from the very excitable crowd of : drum roll :


Impact kicked off with Sting approaching the much hated… and easily hated Dixie Carter, Sting being a big supporter and great friend of Carter… well, apart from that one time…

However it seems Dixie has been avoiding Sting’s texts, but like anyone with any sense, your best bet is to just call them, it works wonders. But Sting happens to be overlooking the biggest part of this:

1: her character now essentially is (I don’t know anything about the industry, also most things, my Dad has money)

Dixie 1 money

2: Dixie isn’t a young Whipper Snapper, this new technology probably goes over her head

Dixe 2 Phone

and yes ladies and gentleman, Number 3: … she’s a woman.

Dixie 3 woman

Which is when Dixie pretty much told Sting not to worry about her, she can handle herself, and strangely enjoyed stroking his suit jacket. So let’s add another one of her list of qualities:

4: she’s a whore

Bully Ray along with his “Main Squeeze”, I never got that phrase, is that someone he squeezes more than anyone else? Or is it that this someone squeezes you more than anyone else. Either way, I am guessing it is this problem and trail of thought that led to the design of the Stress Ball, and like anything Ironic… and of course in turn associated with the said number of this issue, these things have a “handy” way of coming Full-Circle.

Bully had a lot of positive things to say about Dixie’s turn to the Dark Side

Dixie Dark Side

I guess this makes the casting of Morgan Freeman even more relevant for Bad Influence – The Movie.

Bully was taken aback by Dixie’s retaliation to AJ’s hat, hair and beard, and even praised the President of TNA for getting into AJ’s head so much so, that Bully doesn’t even need to worry about his Title Match coming up at Bound for Glory.

Of course Bully didn’t miss an opportunity to bad mouth the fans, saying Dixie is the sole person responsible for AJ Styles ever performing in front of these “Morons”. Needless to say, some people took offense to his rash, unbridled use of his Politically Incorrect remark.

Boo Mentally Challenged

There is more irony to be found in this, with The Aces and Eights created to “over-throw” management, and then just being on their side in the end.

Wes, Garret and Knux all stepped up to confront Bully, in yet another show of them falling apart, claiming Bully is more bothered about keeping the Belt around his waist than he is about his “Brothers in the club”.

This led Bully to tell them to once again get in line, and that they better win their match tonight against The Main Event Mafia (for some reason) or else whoever Loses, will be out of the Club.

Bro Man’s and Gail Kim vs. ODB, Eric Young and Joseph Park


Before the match Park was seen attempting to “Shave” backstage before EY stopped him, finally coming to the conclusion that the sight of his own blood causes Park to go crazy. What is more important is Park “slapped his Face” getting Shaving foam everywhere, a clear sign that he is a proud endorser of the Electric Shaver!

It was a strange match, strange in a good way I suppose, it sort of feels like they are finally (finally) trying to solve the problems Joseph Park has been having for over a year now. Funny because he’s a lawyer, which should mean he’s really smart, although he did get Shaving Foam everywhere,.. literally.

We all know he is the same guy as Abyss, but what is weird is that with Abyss we know he’s going to get up, fight back, battle through anything, With Joseph Park, he looks really vulnerable I find. It’s a good set up of polar opposites by the same guy.

Speaking of things being strange, Eric Young has continued his use of much more sensible Wrestling Attire, which I sort of don’t like. I miss the silly Bandanas and Shorts.

In the end it was Park with a Second Rope Splash, EY with a Top Rope Elbow Drop and finally ODB with a Splash on the ground for them to pick up the Win.

 Austin Aries vs. Kenny King

Sure this had quite a build up to get to this point, Aries made his way to the ring to speak of where he goes from here after coming up short in the Bound for Glory series. Once again Aries speaks the truth, even if he is not “Headlining” the Pay Per View, he will be the Main Event. Which promptly led to Kenny King’s return. Now King hasn’t been seen in a while, and I am sure he has come back with new Music, but just like the last few themes, they just haven’t got it right. His first Theme was great and suited him much better, he should just continue to use that one.

King is holding a grudge on Aries for when King lost the X-Division Belt to Chris Sabin, it was Aries who stole the belt from Sabin in his “Manik” switch that took all of the attention away from King’s rematch. Though go back even further to last year’s Destination X and Kenny King and Austin Aries had a segment backstage where they implied King will be in Aries’ position a year later, and he very nearly was.

This all led to Aries challenging King to a match, King refused, then sucker punched him, and then the match took place.

There is very little to say here, simply Watch this match if you love Wrestling, Kenny King is amazingly gifted in the ring, and Austin Aries, well he’s Austin Aries. They put on the Match of the show, which included King getting badly busted open.

It was Aries’ Brain Buster that led to the Victory.

Shortly after their match, Aries was backstage and got confronted by Chris Sabin and Velvet Sky, Sabin continues his “Heel” gimmick, though Aries’ “Hey Velvet” and completely ignoring Sabin had me in stitches. Sabin claimed to be “Greater than the Greatest Man that Ever Lived”, Aries said he will Test that Theory, and I certainly enjoyed the Mention of Sabin laying on his back getting his ass kicked for 15Mins, and finally winning with a Hammer.

There was a short Video Promo for Lei’d Tapa who “Is Coming” which is exciting, we saw her via Gut Check, obviously they should just not have done Gut Check and ran this Video Promo and her “Impact” would have been far Greater.

Then later in the show was a Video Promo for “Ethan is Coming” judging by the “Bling” on the lettering, it’s safe to say this guy is going to be another Robbie E / Jesse …. or he’s Black.

Also Kurt Angle is making his “Return” to the Company at Bound for Glory, whether or not he will be Competing or not, we do not know.

Chris Sabin vs. Manik – X-Division Championship

After Sabin’s attack on Manik last week, it led to this Match-Up. Though I didn’t know you could beat someone up and get a Title Shot, sort of makes the whole 3-Month BFG Series a little irrelevant.

There are numerous things wrong with this match, for one the intro Graphics shows the Old X-Division Championship Belt, Sabin bent Velvet over to kiss her on the Ramp and also why is Velvet hanging around with him on Air anyway?

Interestingly though, Sabin did try and “unmask” Manik, but he held on to his Mask, which pretty much makes no sense as we see him all the time backstage without it on.

Sabin then pretended his Knee was injured, and followed that up by Throwing Velvet into Manik, then kicking him in the face. Say what you want to about him, but that is a rather good move.

The Finish of the match was rather similar with Manik locking in a Submission Hold, and Sabin reaching for the Ropes, instead grabbed Velvet and pulled her in the ring, the distraction led to Sabin trying a quick Roll-Up on Manik, which was Reversed and Manik won with a Roll-Up, where Sabin’s shoulders clearly weren’t on the Map. Something I noticed and Taz pointed out straight away, no doubt done on purpose. Of course the real probably comes with where Earl Hebner was actually looking when he did the Three Count:

Manik Sabin earl

Sabin then attacked Manik once more which led to Austin Aries running out and pulling a Steiner:

Aries fell over

No doubt the Aries – Sabin match up a few Months back will become a One on One bout at Bound for Glory, and will have the potential to be the match of the night.

 The Aces and Eights vs. The Main Event Mafia

Before the match started, Knux had a great promo getting Wes and Garret fired up, why they haven’t let Knux be more of a out spoken “Brother” till now, I don’t know, but he’s really growing on me as a Character. If Anderson does come back, and they keep the Aces and Eights going, Anderson should be President with Knux as VP.

On the Flip side, Magnus was throwing a Strop backstage earlier on in the night about Ego, and Ego had a promo about how good a Loser Magnus is.

I am a little sick of 6-Man Tag matches right now, one last week and two this week, albeit a “Mixed Tag” but it has the same effect. Magnus looked great in the ring as always, but Ego made their presence known and knocked him off the Top Rope injuring his knee and he left the match, making is a 3 on 2 situation.

Regardless of the odds, in the end it was Joe who made Wes Tap Out for the Win.

Bully Ray came out to deal with Wes, and said he is a disgrace to his colours and to hand over his Cut.

Wes refused to hand over his cut, and in the end Bully delivered a Pile-Driver and got Garret and Knux to remove his Cut and hand it over. Bully did order them by stating “I don’t pay you to think” if you pay a “Club” surely that’s the wrong thing. They tend to be there Voluntary, because they want to be there. Knux and Garret picked up Wes to help him to the back but the Tension between Bully and Knux is building, just like it did with Anderson. I fear they will just end The Aces and Eights and be done with it, which is a shame because I think the Faction can move on to better things without Bully rather than dying with him.

Hulk Hogan – AJ Stlyes – Face to Face

Hogan came out earlier on in the night to get the Crowd to cheer for AJ, stating that AJ can lead TNA on to new and better things and take the Belt from Bully, but obviously he wants his Champ to be signed, and he will correct it.

AJ signs the “contract” which is when Dixie Carter came out to correct Hogan’s errors. She claims Hogan was brought in to help build and promote the Brand, and he has done that, but not to forget that he is just an employee, she then Tears Up AJ’s Contract.

Dixie is actually very good at being Heel, I think someone in her position, it is easy to get the Crowd to hate her, but of course it must too be a strange thing for her to go from being much Loved, to be so easily despised. Dixie told AJ to get out of her ring, and she moved her attention to Hogan.

I think TNA once again have been very good at playing the internet, for Dixie stated that “99% of you don’t know her World, and for the last 4 to 5 Months the majority of the Internet Criticised her” via her #AskDixie.

I think they have very cleverly crafted this out to get Feedback, and to piss off a lot of people to help cause this switch from Dixie and AJ and the new direction of the Company.

Dixie ended it with giving Hogan an ultimatum, to either “get in line on Team Dixie” or go on the Side-Lines like AJ Styles.

I actually know what happens next, but I will spare you the details till next week.

I think despite all these “Problems” TNA seemed to be having of late, I think they have a good few tricks up their sleeves, and I would even bet that we haven’t seen the last of some of the people they “let go” either.

Time will tell, but the Road to Bound for Glory is getting mighty interesting!

Till Then.

Monday Night Raw #1061: September 23, 2013!!!

Smack Talk Centre-Raw

Monday Night Raw #1061: September 23, 2013!!!

Seeing as Raw is in Chicago this week, this blog needs NO INTRODUCTION. Yo Common! Drop that tune rude boy!!!

Welcome to another dose of the Hip Hop reppin, Doo rag loose wearing, Supermalt swelling, fried chicken eating, diva loving, wrestling fan hating, INFAMOUS INFORMER!!! RAW #1061, HOLD DAT – BLAOW!!!



First things first, address Stephanie…. OOHHHHHHH!!! Girl why you gotta wear them boots!!!! You sure you don’t wanna cast in Total Divas season 2? Think of the ratings! I wasn’t even listening to Triple, I just saw Stephanie in them boots! you know what that does to a man???

Ok record skip – did Stephanie just ask R-Truth why he shouldn’t be the face of the WWE??? Er Steph, according to your father’s criteria, being black does not qualify to be the face of the WWE! And as for Zack Ryder, the criteria states that you gotta love the ladies, Ryder calls them ‘hoeskis’! I wouldn’t want him as the face of the WWE I can tell you that RIGHT NOW!

Just like Facebook, I like this…. because Triple has given the rebels an opportunity to fight The Shield Elimination handicap match… Yes there are 10 rebels, and 3 of The Shield… and The Shield are looking at Triple as if to say…. HOLD UP???? You expect us to fight all of them??? W’happen – you gone mad????

Great contest between Kofi Kingston and Bertie, but I’ve come to a conclusion about the Mexican Aristocrat, don’t like him on Raw, love him on Smackdown. You know why? He has Lillian Garcia announcing his name in Spanish…. just like Stephanie’s boots, that makes me think wild things…. I really think Bertie should hire Lillian as his new personal ring announcer… IT WOULD BE GREAT!

Come on Cole and JBL – put some heart into your commentating what’s wrong with ya? What must JR be thinking now he’s being fired? I bet he’s shaking his head right now… Wyatts Vs PTP, you should be enthusiastic!

Now I heard about the WWE2K14 full roster reveal, and it looks like you guys are gonna have to create the Wyatt Family yourselves… I know your upset, but make like a pack a cards and DEAL WITH IT! HAHA! About – ‘follow buzzard…’ why should I follow buzzard when I can pre-order the Phenom edition of the game??? Can’t get better than that!

I think The Miz hit the nail on the head here with The Big Show… he’s the locker room leader that everyone looks up to now. He’s been doing this from before Cena come out of nappies so stick that inna yuh pipe and smoke it kiddies and 30-year-old Cena Virgins! If Triple TEEF and Steph can manipulate Show, they can pretty much manipulate anybody… big ups to wrestling historian Roy Warren Lucier of the International Wrestling Fanbase for exposing Steph – (No – not in way we liked unfortunately!) for having no skillz in her promos! Check it!!!WWE No skills

Well it’s better than freestyling off your iPhone, isn’t it Drake???

I suppose calling Stephanie the PG version of the word b!tch is the equivalent of calling Candyman’s name in the mirror 5 times! You’ve done it now Miz!

Big Show – you know what to do… Sean P this muthaf***a through school buses!!!!


…and he did it without hesitation!!! WHOA!!! Maybe Big show will get paid bonus for that now! He’s like Balrog in Super Street Fighter IV when he cries…. MY FIGHT MONEY!!!


Look at Steph fixing The Miz’s jacket as he entered twilight zone! WHAT A WOMAN!!!! She like her men to dress smart!!! HA! HA!

Well according to the WWE Universe (which is not us by the way) RVD gets the shot to fight Randall, no thanks to Stephanie who emphasised his name when she told the fans to vote for either Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston or RRRRROB, VANNNN, DAMMMMM!

Did you hear the voices in Randall’s head??? I did! They talked to him, and they said – “KILL ROB VAN DAM… KILL HIM!!! DDT HIS HEAD FROM TOP ROPES!!!” Did you hear the evil laugh that Randall did just before he did it? “HA HA HA HA” – DDT FROM TOP ROPES – BLAOWWWWW!!!!!

OH LAWWWD – Is it me or has Summer Rae got no draws on??? Look pon her outfit!!!! How can Fandango be professional when he’s gotta dance with her every week? I’m sorry, I’d be tryna get in that pu$$y backstage if I was him! Unless she has a man of course, then that is d!ck teasing for him NEXT LEVEL!

Before I go into the next segment, whoever hit the play button to Bret/Natalya Hart’s music while CM Punk was fighting Curtis Axel & Ryback is gonna join Cody Rhodes at the job centre surely!

Just as Heyman’s Over 50′s scooter mashed up on him, CM Punk was like yeah – YUH GOOSE COOK NOW!!! But Axel & Ryback was like camouflage ninjas and ambushed Punk one time! The Wolverine, claws and all, fighting off his adversaries and then Ryback grab, him gorilla press right into a table – BLAOWWWWW!

I suggest you press play on that vid before YouTube take it down…

Now apparently Punk Midas cussed bad words… well wouldn’t you if you was thrown like that??? And some idiot said ‘The Attitude Era is back’…. YES you Internet wrestling b!tches… if you fit this criteria, I HATE YOU!!!


Now the match is set at the next PPV, Battlegound, CM Punk will face Ryback… I heard you b!tch @$$ fans complaining about this match up already… do me a favor – SHUT THE F**K UP!

How are not gonna show me footage and pics of the 10 diva tag match??? What sort ofGRANT - BODY - P sh!t is that??? You don’t appreciate  A Woman’s Worth either??? DISRESPECT!!! What I know is, Natalya, The Bellas, and my favourite Nubians defeated AJ Lee, Alicia Fox, Aksana, my baby mother Layla and my mistress Tamina… Yo Layla! Tamina! You reppin for the wrong team!

It’s ok I found some interesting diva footage… let’s get into it…

Now the moment you b!tch @$$ wrestling fans dreaded, getting the Bellas involved in the main storyline… Randall approached Brie and told her what a real man should look like… seems like Randall wants a piece of Brie haha! Watch out girl… He’s RKO’d Stacy Kiebler in the past! He dropped Stephanie with the DDT a few years back! You don’t want a woman beater now… do you??? Oh I have a bad feeling about this!!! he’s got voice in ah him head side and they chat to him!! MI SEH DEM CHAT TO HIM!!!

“Branded… scorned is the one who raaaan
What do you do when your branded? And you know you’re a man!
Wherever you go, for the rest of your life
You must proooooove, you’re a man!!!”

Yes I’m referring to the Danielson segment…yes Danielson was branded – a TEEF, by whom you ask? TRIPLE TEEF!!! Was Danielson and Ref Scott Armstrong in this together with the fast count? Maybe, maybe not… was Armstrong paid off handsomely by Triple? Maybe, maybe not! The rematch is set for the next PPV, but can we get a stipulation in that b!tch? And did Danielson just say that Randall hides behind the bosses’ skirts??? Was he in effect calling Stephanie a b!tch? or was it Triple? or was it even Vincent Kennedy???? Answers on a postcard please!

Side note – Welcome back Kaitlyn! Didn’t notice that your fine self even left! Yo work on your interview skills!!! That is all!

As we enter the main event: AMPLIFIED SURVIVOR SERIES MATCH – LET’S GO!!!

You mean to tell me that Dean Ambrose has been eliminating members of the rebellion with that same super move and we STILL don’t know what it’s called?? And he’s an US Champion??? WWE FIX UP MAN!!!

Yes do not adjust your sets, your WWE app, or your live stream, Zack Ryder is in the main event! Watch him! He’s going for the WOO WOO BOOT!


Even though Ziggler is fighting on the side of right, I still don’t rate him… but I have to big him up because The Shield tried to teef by interfering in the match even though they were already eliminated except for Seth Rollins… Ziggler and the Usos made sure that wasn’t happening! FEED SETH TO THE LIONS!

So what’s that new super move you got now Danielson? the YES KNEE???!!! Is it in the new game? Because if not, you know us gamers will look for a super move similar!

But the big story here is the element of surprise that you internet wrestling b!tches never saw coming… and I’ll tell you now, if you come with your foolishness on either Smack Talk Centre or Powerbomb Pro Wrestling News, I’m sending for the Wu-Tang Sword and chopping your snake tongue off lyrically!

That’s gotta be a contender for best Raw moment of the year at the slammys surely! Cody Rhodes & Goldust, attacking The Shield before they went out to compete! That was wild yo!!!! Ok early prediction for the next PPV Battleground – The Shield Vs Usos for the tag titles – Love both teams – but the Usos will win the tag titles due to interference by the Rhodes Brothers! Next day on Raw – Triple TEEF strips the Usos of the tag titles and may hold them either vacant or give back to the Shield… I’ll make final judgment before the PPV jumps off next Sunday!

The Jobber Blogger #68 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 19/9/13

The Jobber Blogger

Well it appears my fake retirement speech last week got the attention of at least one person. I’m sure more than one person rejoiced at the idea. Regardless of any of that though, I did however make a slight claim which isn’t exactly entirely true anymore. I claimed that this week will the first from a Brand New 400 Page Writing Pad! And here on the side sits my Brand New 400 Page Writing pad, but unfortunately I used it before I watched impact, and being a soppy bugger Wrote out a letter and now it only has 399 pages left. Of course things could correct themselves as there might have been a manufacturing problem, and there could indeed be more or less pages than the 400 advertised on the front… you’ll be happy to know I have not been through and counted them all.

Why am I so tired, that’s a good question, if I’m honest I don’t think I’ve caught up with my sleep from my trip down South.. I had to go through London… I swear visiting that place even briefly is like taking years off of your life. I’ve never found anywhere I hate more and more each time I go. Ah, the joys of being a Country Lad, sitting on Sheep and throwing Poop at the Farmers. I’ve never done either of those. Though there is nothing like coming home to the Manure filled air!

Speaking of Manure Filled Air, let’s get chattin’ about this week’s TNA: Impact!

Yup, a special date indeed.

That is all I’m going to mention on it being a Special Date. Last week was a good show from Top to Bottom for TNA, and obviously with No Surrender being out of the way they are back to the usual TV Schedule, so out with all the matches and in with Promo’s and behind the scenes Segments.

Magnus kicked off the show, first with getting beaten up backstage by Ego, but then out in the ring. He claimed to the crowd to be injured, hurt after a gruelling battle for the BFG Series Finals one week ago, asking if the Crowd remembered! It is still weird, because we all know this was filmed mere minutes after the end of No Surrender, in front of the same crowd. I guess they have to drop these “TIME MENTIONS!” into the Promo’s to solidify to the crowd that they’re watching next week’s Show, and to remind people at home what week it is.

I suspected Magnus and Roode would end up feuding to fill a Grudge Match for Bound for Glory, maybe even for a Number One Contenders shot. With Magnus so irate from last week’s interference from Ego, and the beat down before the show, he calls out anyone for a fight.

Kazarian runs to the ring as if to accept Magnus’ challenge, followed by Christopher Daniels and finally Bobby Roode as all three of them beat down on Magnus. Which is when Sting and Samoa Joe run down to help out and scare off Ego. I fully believe Magnus claimed he didn’t have his “Family” with him when he challenged Ego, also wasn’t The Main Event Mafia put together purely to stop The Aces and Eights.. so why are they venturing off into other Faction Wars. Either way, a Big 6-Man Tag was set for the Main Event.

Jeff Hardy vs. Manik

Before the match took place Chris Sabin, with now on screen and long-time real life girlfriend Velvet Sky, had a chat with Manik. Manik of course not wearing his Mask doing the whole “I’m not facing the Camera” type of gimmick. Sabin went on to talk about how awesome he is himself and how Manik wouldn’t even be the X-Division Champion without Chris Sabin’s involvement in the entire Division, let alone dropping the belt to Challenge for the World Championship.

This match was born from Manik asking Hogan if he can face Jeff, for it is a “Dream Match” of his. Which is somewhat Ironic, because as per usual Jeff and Manik do the whole Move-Counter Move impressive athleticism stuff and then have a Stand Off. Which is when Jeff decided to Pose in front of Manik, for some reason, and then applauded him, which is the funny part, because Jeff applauded Manik in a type of “this guy is good” but in reality, I think Manik might actually be better from a Technical stand point.

However the match wasn’t that long, and Jeff soon dropped Manik with the Twist-of-Fate and connected with the Swanton Bomb picking up the win.

And of course as everyone suspected, Jeff and Manik show a sign of respect, and then Chris Sabin gets in the ring to do the same for Manik, and then beats him up.

Yes, it is a bit of a “By the numbers” Heel Turn, but at least Angry Sabin could be a better Theme Song than “Hail Sabin”.

Angry Picture

Im Angry

Sure I made fun of him…. most times I mention his name, but I was actually quite impressed with Sabin’s Angry side this week. I think it is exactly what he needs to be interesting currently, after such a run of being incredibly annoying. Though it does come across as “I don’t know what to do with him, let’s make him heel, because he’s not THAT good, and he can feud with Manik for the X-Division title at BFG”. That probably sums up TNA’s Creative Writing 6 Months in Advance.

ODB vs. Mickie James – Knockouts Championship

Well this has been a long time coming, of course they were prepping Taryn Terrell for this shot, but she had to go and get pregnant, seriously, priorities?

No doubt she’s off Hot Messing it up elsewhere. And next in line is the crowd favourite, once fired, brought back, barely used and now new Knockouts Champion, ODB.

This was all to set the stage for Mickie James’ contract issues coming to a head. Her contract was about to expire, and I’m sure she is now top of the Pay Roll in the Knockouts Division since Tara has gone. Which basically means they can drop the Belt, and then try and negotiate. Which apparently went as Mickie turned down the offer and is done with TNA, but now more rumours state she is still in the negotiation process. Put it this way, Mickie James is amazing, and the best Women’s Wrestler in my opinion, not to mention how great she is with Character work. Her current Heel run has been awesome and in this match her attitude and talent shines. If TNA want to build a great Knockouts Division once more, then they need Mickie James as the Hood Ornament, Champion or not.

ODB did her own version of Hulking Up, in a much more scary manor

ODB Angry Picture

I’m Angry

The ending was a little Sudden, Mickie had full control, looking to drop ODB with a Corner Tornado DDT I believe, which was counted into the BAM! and picked up the win.

Either way, I like ODB and she is a credit to how TNA apparently want to showcase Women’s Wrestling, with Wrestlers, rather than just Models who can’t do anything. It’s a shame the Division is so scarce of talent of late, a few years back it was Thriving, and as interesting, if not more interesting at times than the Male Division.

Eric Young and Joseph Park both came out to Celebrate the Title Victory with ODB, which is when Bro’Mans hit the scene.

Yup, Robbie E and Jesse have not been fired yet, I’ve always been a Robbie E fan, I think he has great character work and great in ring skills, yet he always draws the short straw, I do understand that he is the more “joke” Wrestler, but still.

Robbie E still has an Issue with Joseph Park and challenged him to a match, but with Park wearing a Suit, it was EY who took him on. And literally one Roll Up 2 seconds later, and EY won the match.

Leaving Robbie E to challenge Joseph Park once more, and literally one Roll Up 2 seconds later and Park had won the match.

It was a little “dumb” and they could have just let them all fight, but in the end it was the Bro’Mans just outright attacking EY and Park, throwing Park into the Ring Post which busted him open, and of course he went into Abyss mode and took them both out.

And at this very moment, I would like to say “enough”.

I’m rather sick of the whole Bleeding thing now, it happens every match, and it’s been a running thing for well over a year, either develop the story, or just stop it. At this rate it looks as if they want to keep Joseph Park as a Wrestler rather than Abyss. I don’t know if Abyss is even going to turn up again anytime soon. I guess they are looking to angle these two teams into a Feud, or even potentially filling up the Tag-Team Division. Regardless, a EY and Park team is a welcome addition. Regardless of it all, they need to do something before they make ODB even angrier!

ODB Hogan

Still Angry

The Aces and Eights, or what is left of them, Bully Ray (with Tessmacher) Wes Brisco, Garret Bischoff and Knux make their way to the ring.

Basically the whole segment is the aftermath of last week’s Awesome Last-Man Standing match between Bully and Anderson. The fact Mike Tenay said there is no update on the condition of Anderson does imply they haven’t as of yet just cut ties with him and wrote him off of Television… currently. Bully put all of his praise onto Tessmacher for being the sole purpose he has been successful, and how much she has helped develop everything. Which of course gives the remaining “Brothers” a reason to step up wanting attention back their way.

It is a shame that the message of The Aces and Eights has become “nothing”, they were once an invading faction trying to gain control and over throw management, seemingly with a point to prove. But when new comers like Doc or Knux are in the mix, surely they have no personal gripe with Dixie or Hogan, more to the fact of being over-looked as Wrestlers and fighting for the spot light. Either way, it just boiled down to getting Bully the title.

One by one Wes, Garret and Knux showed off their dislike to how Bully is running the club and each time Bully turned that back on them in a controlling manor. But it was Knux who actually stood up and for the first time in a over a year he’s been with TNA, we finally got to really see him as a “Guy” rather than a number within the faction. And he’s good on the mic, I actually liked seeing him take control. More to the point it was interesting when he mentioned that there were 25 Guys in the Faction, with only 4 left (5 including Taz… if that counts?) and that is a testament to how Bully Ray runs the Club. Not to mention that they have kept Bully in power to keep the Gold in the faction.

This is where I hope they take The Aces and Eights, make it that Bully Ray only developed them to make himself World Heavyweight Champion, and the rest of the faction went along with it to keep the Power the belt holds within. But it became seemingly more relevant that Bully only wanted them to help him for his own selfish reasons. Which is why they could have Anderson return and take over the reigns as President of The Aces and Eights, and still keep them a “Heel” faction, without being complete “Bad Guys”. Knux could become the new Vice President, and they can recruit and grow. The idea behind the faction, the look, the music, it all works. It’s just grown stale, but if they play that off as Bully being selfish, it will hold on to the values that were originally created. If TNA is moving in a new direction then The Aces and Eights could be pivotal in changing Management, or pivotal in keeping a huge slice of persuasion as a Renege Faction within the Locker-room once more.

Either way, Knux didn’t back down to Bully’s intimidation, and it was Bully who stepped away from the fight.

Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez vs. James Storm and Gunner

This much “anticipated” match was the result from last week’s Challenge, but stay out of our Business segment. Chavo is continuing to build his Heel character by claiming as much as he’d like to Wipe Their Faces off the matt…. not sure quite what that means…

Chavo is apparently injured and not cleared to Wrestle, which is an interesting thing to note after turning up in Ring Gear.

Either way, Gunner and Hernandez locked horns, and I really didn’t make any notes.

It’s the usual Big Guy vs. Big Guy match, entertaining, powerful, all the usual. In the end it was a Back Breaker from Gunner that won the match. And the MDV celebrated accordingly!

Gunner The Viking


Apparently just because Gunner beat Hernandez, that doesn’t mean they can’t still Wrestle a Tag-Match. I guess everyone has forgotten that Wes and Garret beat the Champs huh?

EGO vs. Main Event Mafia

I nearly fell asleep through this Match. I don’t mean that to sound like it was boring, it was rather late and I had finished work rather late too. But that aside, it was kind of boring.

It was a straight forward typical Tag Match, Sting got singled out, ref didn’t see the tag, everything went crazy (which was pretty good actually!) a bit of Tag-Team Wrestling then a Cheat to Win ending.

A few things that stood out, Magnus and Joe should be a Team Again, they are good together, but I doubt that will happen any time soon. Why the hell is MEM even bothering with EGO rather than just finishing off The Aces and Eights straight after they lost another member and are falling apart, that’s a good place to really ruin their alliance right?

Either way, in the end it was Roode who landed a Bat Shot to the back of Magnus behind the Ref’s back and won the match. Leaving Magnus with yet another loss after Months of being at the top of the Leader board. No doubt Magnus and Roode are entering a feud, and maybe this might be the end of the Main Event Mafia, one can only hope, because they are terrible.

AJ Styles – Dixie Carter – Face to Face

So the part of the show everyone wanted to see. It was no surprise what direction TNA were heading in with this whole “AJ Styles – Rebellious” thing, but I think it might have caught a few people off guard with what actually took place.

AJ did the usual “Day 1” rant about being here to build the Company before Dixie even got involved. And that band of brothers who helped create this new exciting aspect of Wrestling and Division, and growing Brand / Talent, was then bought out by Dixie Carter who has no idea of the Wrestling Industry and a rich father who bought it for her. That is all actually true.

AJ claimed that she broke up the Chemistry that was once TNA, and instead replaced the likes of Jerry Lynn (no big loss), Low Ki, Jay Lethal (big losses) with MMA Stars and high paid “Talent” from other companies who take a paid vacation and then leave to go back where they came from. Again, true points.

AJ then said despite what the internet reports, he doesn’t in fact have a TNA Contract. Which is when Dixie makes her way to the ring, to some Boo’s as well I might add, mainly because there is a lot of Bad Reaction to a lot of the Creative Changes within TNA, and obviously AJ Styles represents the old and the original, so he being the Face of this “change” will draw the fans to his side and against Dixie, if that’s what AJ claims.

Dixie said that she is entirely accountable, and she is sorry. And then turned that into a big Heel Rant about how AJ is only “better than Average” that is found elsewhere, and the Phenomenal One gimmick is just an illusion she herself created as a Marketing Tool. She said AJ is nothing like he used to be and she can’t even remember the last time he had a 5Star Match (she obviously didn’t watch last week). And that without her Rich Father he wouldn’t have a Pay Check, would still live in a Trailer, and as much as AJ claims this is the house he built, in reality it’s the house that Dixie Built.

AJ tried to forge a “rebuttal” but Dixie shouted to Cut his Mic, Turn off the Lights and end the show.

It was actually better than I thought it would be, but unfortunately it still comes across Scripted. The problem is, I find personally that TNA is usually either doing their own thing, or is ahead of the Competition, like The Aces and Eights (Shield) and then AJ – Dixie romance thing was also copied. However the biggest thing to happen in recent memory was of course CM Punk’s “Pipe Bomb” which was also Scripted, but the timing was perfect. CM Punk had a legit gripe with the company, they let him speak his mind (within reason), CM Punk’s contract was also ending right after the Money in the Bank PPV. So connect the Dots, AJ Styles “might have legit issues with TNA”, AJ’s contract is supposedly up after Bound for Glory. They are trying to capture that magic. I don’t think they can, because the audience knows that this is hot controversy, it was once created organically, you can’t recreate that, because people are expecting it.

More to the point, if AJ was really annoyed he could have ranted about Bischoff, Hogan, the recent Releases of Stars, Money being wasted on crap they don’t need. I do like the fact they mentioned the MMA guys, which goes to show TNA are well aware that the fans don’t care about them. But my guess is that they won’t be paying top Dollar for these guys as their contracts extend to Bellator, and to Spike TV.

So my guess is TNA are 100% behind this, and AJ Styles is in no way going to leave the Company, nor would they ever let him. All of it, my guess, is to play the internet, blurring the lines, and making Styles’ potential BFG Title Win one of leverage where he could take the Power out of TNA.

What if they let Styles turn up in ROH again with the Championship, that would be cool. At the end of the day it seems TNA are restructuring themselves, they have let go of people they don’t need currently, maybe even those who don’t fit their vision going forward, at least currently. There is talk of re-evaluating Hogan and Bischoff’s contracts, so they could easily be gone. Not to mention talk of coming off the Road and setting up base somewhere old, or new.

They obviously had plans a long time ago, and if they do it right, they could angle Dixie, Hogan and Bischoff as the heels, AJ Styles could bring in a new (old) TNA to recapture a huge audience number. They could re-brand, six sided ring, anything could happen.

More to the point, what if Dixie Carter is behind The Aces and Eights all along, or what if she pays them off to screw over AJ Styles. Or at least tries to, perhaps Bully will, and the other faction with then side with AJ. But there is ground work in place, and if they are reshaping the company, which would explain the recent lay-offs and behind the scenes chatter, some of it a work, other legit. But Bound for Glory could prove a huge changing ground for the TNA Landscape, and I for one am actually rather excited to see where it all goes from here!

Till Then!

Monday Night Raw #1060: September 16, 2013!!!

Chain gleamin’, switchin’ lanes, two-seater Hate him or love him for the same reason Can’t leave it, the game needs him Plus the people need someone to believe in So in God’s Son we trust Cause they know I’m gonna give ‘em what they want They lookin’ for a hero, I guess that makes me a hero!!!

Danielson has done it!!! He’s the new WWE Champion!!! But wait… the ref dropped a fast count… rewind back to WrestleMania XIV, Mike Tyson dropped a fast count on Shawn Michaels, thus making Stone Cold Steve Austin the WWF Champion, fast forward to 1999, Chris Jericho defeated Triple TEEF for the WWF title, but it was a fast count, and somehow the decision was overturned…

I have a bad feeling about this… we were celebrating with Danielson at Night of Champions…. I sincerely hope the celebration continues… but that Triple Teef…. I don’t truss him!!!


WWF PROPA TINGZI am so proud of Danielson right now! He won the title, and he didn’t have to get in the chair! Word is bond – I’m gonna do a Daniel Bryan tribute video… I gotta do it this week. WHUH-OH!!! NOT TRIPLE TEEF!!!!! What does he want???? he hasn’t come with a shovel has he???

Wait a minute, did Triple TEEF try to insinuate that Daniel Bryan and the ref were working together to ensure a fast count and  a win??? Yo Daniel!!! RUN!!! Triple stripping the title from Daniel Bryan? He can’t do that! Oh yes he can he’s the C.O.O.!!! Don’t hand it over Daniel! RUN!!!! Beat Randall or Triple over the head with it! Oh no!!! It does remind you of Vincent Kennedy & Austin doesn’t it???


MINE! IT’S MINE!!!”Vincent kennedy 3

“Good God……Good God…..” Shout out to Good Ol’ JR… how could they do you like that eh?

Here’s the twist! Stephanie wants the Randall that handcuffed Triple to the ring, dropped the DDT on her, kissed her and felt up her breast! She wants the evil Randall that kicked people in their head!!! I’M ALL ABOUT THAT STEPHANIE!!!

I wonder if I can get Stephanie eating donuts every February 10th….????

Mike Cole has informed me that Dean Ambrose has sung a ballad dedicated to Ziggler and you can find it on… thank you MC!!! I WILL CHECK IT OUT!!!

Ziggler wins the match against Ambrose here, but I don’t care about that…Ambrose is still the man with the US title! I gotta see that ballad!!!

So Big Show can’t do sh!t again…. Stephanie says, he must sit one place and not move, unless she calls him… well THE GRANT SAYS Stephanie, I’ll sit here and do nothing…I’ll wait for the call from you, and I will give you my Big Show!!!

Hold up – Summer Rae is in the building!!! Excuse me, Grant Forsyth has gotta go and dance….GRANT - BODY - P

While I’m in profane mode, doesn’t Fandango feel like he wants to ramm is d!ck up Summer Rae while she wraps her legs round him like that??? I’m a legs man… and I’m sorry, she wraps her legs round me like that… somebody is losing her voice screaming!

Not even an hour into the show, my favourite divas haven’t been on yet, and Raw is already better than Night Of Champions!

How dare the crowd chant ‘What’ during Dusty Rhodes speech…. DISRESPECTFUL – GO AND WASH YOUR MOUTH WITH LIVORIS MUTHAF***A, AND DON’T SAY THE N WORD B!TCH!

I like the fact that Dusty Rhodes told Stephanie to bring her long legs to the ring and get to this business proposition… OH YEAAAH!!! I’m all over Stephanie tonight!

So I guess that’s what happens when you refuse the offer of giving either Cody or Goldust a job in WWE… can’t choose between is sons so Stephanie sends for the Shield to destroy Dusty… but she puts the brakes on and forces Big Show to punch Dusty through school buses… if you thought the Sean P punch to Daniel Bryan was hard to watch, this one makes your stomach churn… a heart full of regret, Big Show couldn’t stand there and let the Shield destroy him so it hurt him when he had to punch him for dolo…

Oh my god! Ladies everywhere! Aksana, Alicia Fox, Layla, Natalya, AJ, Brie Bella, Cameron & Naomi…. JoJo, Eva Marie, Nikki Bella… Where’s my Dhalsim hands to hug all of these women at the same time?

Like I said, one on one, Natalya can destroy AJ… the Fatal 4 way ting at Night Of Champions, I knew AJ got this… the issue is between Natalya and AJ, just like I said from marning!

Miz, me and you will never be friends… I know this, but words from the wise…. protect yourself at all times… because you got Randall in your match… Stephanie has pretty much handed Randall the keys to kick people in their head!

I don’t believe this sh!t!!!! Now Triple has just fired the referee Scott Armstrong just because he did one simple mistake… THE GRANT SAYS – was that a shot at Jim Ross? (think about it…) TRIPLE TEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEF!!!

This is shocking – The Miz is actually fighting Randall in his hometown in front of his family! And anyhow Randall kicks Miz in his head…. oh lawwwd…

OH SH!T!!!!! It looks like Randall has found himself a brand new super move that is even more evil than the Punt Kick! I could hear the voices in his head from here!!! After he brukk up The Miz all over the ring, he sets him up, puts a steel chair between the Miz neck and head, runs up, jumps and drops his knee on the chair – BLAAAAAAAAAAOWWWWWWWWWW!!!!! Him dead now!

NO!!!! Look at Paul Heyman!!!! He’s BACCCCCK! He’s shaved his beard! He’s not stressed anymore! He’s in a wheelchair, but he has Ryback by his side!!!! And he called himself the Best In The World!!! Why? Because he ‘pinned CM PUNK!!!’ and it’s forever etched in the record books! I disagree with Paul Heyman when he said he got the worst beating in WWE history… I wanna introduce you to two people: Undertaker & Shawn Michaels… show Paul Heyman what a beating is!!

Sh!t is crazy how one year ago, CM Punk and Ryback had beef, and now one year later, it’s Ryback who is riding with Paul Heyman… who is so grateful for his life that he kissed Ryback!!! What is this? Just because Darren Young came out the closet in the public eye it gives everyone else the go ahead to kiss next man on TV????

After everything that has happened, can you imagine if Jim Ross was announcing? I bet those YouTube junkies are conjuring up something now….!!!

Just for the record, any wrestling fan that chants ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ is NOT A FRIEND OF MINE!!!

If Antonio Cesaro keeps doing that Giant Swing… he’s gonna turn face and go against Wack Swagger… that’s my word! That man has so much incredible talent and untapped potential… he hasn’t tasted World Heavyweight Gold yet… amazing!

The Usos killing it!!! simultaneously soaring over the top rope taking out the Real Americans! CRAZY!!! And rightfully, the Usos are #1 contenders for the tag team titles!!!! What y’all gonna say about the tag team division now??? TALK SH!T NOW!!!

GTA-V-bigWhuddup Wyatts!!! So much sh!t is happening that these guys nearly got lost in the shuffle… their promos are some of the best I have seen all year.. it’s on that disturbing Saw sh!t… and those that have followed the buzzards have that new Grand Theft Auto V game… that game is the new root of all evil… it will destroy relationships the world over. (Oh you’re just saying that coz you’re jealous) not so my friend… I’ve never been a fan of the series, a pure Street Fighter and Tekken me a deal wid!!! If you haven’t figured it out by now, The Infamous Informer is taking shots at STC’s boss man Jamie Maverick Shields, who seemingly has turned his back on his group in favour for this game… updating his status every two minutes about the game, while showing no love or regard for the group he created! It is shocking!!!!

This is not right!!! Danielson is competing against Roman Reigns… you got the Shield out there, and now the evil Randall is out there too!!! Danielson cannot contend with these odds!

And the evil Randall was gonna do it again… set up a chair to end Danielson… but watch da ryde! The locker room rushed the ring! Brukk up The Shield!!!! All this, while Big Show, Sheamus, John Cena and Kane were not in effect!!! RIOT LIKE IT’S PRISONER CELL BLOCK H!!!

You know Triple TEEF ain’t gonna like this!!! He’s probably back there polishing his hammer… oh wait.. that didn’t sound too right!!!

“There’s no shame, in going out fighting, and getting your @$$ kicked… There’s no honor, in not fighting at all…” (Undertaker, 2001)

Ahh, my fellow Jobber Blogs, or Blobs I would like to call you… that means fans. And I will no doubt lose some by referring to them as my “Blobs”. However, I shall stick with my judgement.

Well it’s been a strange week for the Jobber Blogger, I left my last issue, that’s #66 for those who can’t subtract, or indeed if I forget to write the title properly. I had some good bit of response from #66, both positive and negative, clearly I wouldn’t be writing these if I wasn’t a fan of TNA, it’s just sometimes they seem to do so many things all at once which annoy the hell out of me. That doesn’t make me hate them, only find it frustrating because of how much I want to see them succeed.

But a week later, a busy week at that, trips down south, a full weekend of events, the Jobber Blogger has finally watched No Surrender and is back on track to giving you his Worthless Opinion.

Though I would like to take this time to note something on a more personal note, with regards to my older issues, especially the more “negatively” viewed edition of last week, I would like to say that I will be putting down the pad, and retiring it, making this, the last issue. But of course, there’s no point in worrying about things, so on with the show!

 TNA: No Surrender – 12/9/13

 For the longest time TNA has had a track record of giving us, the fans, these awesome spectacles of Pay Per Views, they always delivered. Even if some of the booking was rushed, or certain matches weren’t great, on a hole I have always felt their PPV’s were the best in the industry, and the best I have seen for a long time.

Every now and then TNA really give us a crap show, and last week did kind of suck. So it is with great joy to say that No Surrender was Fantastic and hit home run after home run. No Surrender is the pure example of how good their Locker Room really is, sure they have so many crap ideas, and terrible bookings, and dodgy contracts, and money issues, and countless problems. At the end of the day, the heart and soul of what their business is, is successful!

Bully Ray kicked off the show telling everyone how pissed off he is about Anderson’s up front approach to his issues with the President. However Bully claims he is happy to Forgive, and at the end of the day, like most things TNA related… it’s Hogan’s fault.

Damn you Hogan

Which is Hogan’s queue to come out and face the music, of course being completely oblivious to anything being his problem. Of course being Hogan, his segment did pretty much involve him blabbing about stuff that isn’t relevant, he’s like a Teenager whom thinks everything revolves around him.. but in a good way. Still, Hogan’s reaction blew the roof off, so does that solidify his pay check… time will tell. Anderson makes his way out, blowing off a possible Hand Shake to the Hulkster and getting face to face with Bully Ray.

Bully is willing to forgive Anderson, if he would step up and Apologise for his actions, and then they can move on. Anderson did however apologise for being out of hand, and that he can’t wait to get more out of hand tonight and punched the Champ in the face.

Okay, so let’s put it this way, Anderson was on fire, everything that he has done correctly built to this one night where he was beat for beat perfect.

 Austin Aries vs. AJ Styles – BFG Semi Finals

 Ask anyone who is the best in TNA, and most people will tell you AJ Styles, and that response is built from an 11 Year bulk of fantastic work. He has always been the face of TNA Wrestling, and whether he was in the infamous “Claire Lynch” storyline or the best matches in the company’s history, AJ is synonymous  with TNA and the best in the industry.

Now the only other case of the best in TNA boils down to one Austin Aries, who last year filled out the “Match of the Year” nominations all on his own, let alone anyone he steps in the ring with he can have a fantastic match with. He literally is the definition of “Raising Your Game”. Plenty of people claim to have this ability, but only Austin Aries actually delivers it.

So one would assume when they collide they will have a match of epic proportions.  Their last bout had a dodgy ending that left everyone wanting more, and it was probably that ending which tainted the potential of their match. However I think everyone will agree, AJ Styles vs. Austin Aries – No Surrender 2013 – Match of the Year.

It might be a little premature to declare it the match of the year, but I don’t see anyone topping it, the only other contender will be the main event of Bound for Glory, but both ingredients aren’t there.

AJ still used this “Evil Ways” intro and then the “Get Ready to Fly” continuing, it still doesn’t really flow, but hopefully a combination, or just simply going “old school” will be in the near future.

Trying to write down the highlights of this match is just simply pointless, Watch it, end of.

The crowd was on fire for the entire night and it really lifted the atmosphere, Aries landed a full force Drop Kick to AJ running off the Ropes, and connected with his Brain Buster for a mere 2 Count.

Aries really stood out the more slightly impressive as the match progressed, but his fearsome Drop Kick in the corner was counted with AJ elevating him to the Top Rope, and proceeded to connect with his Styles Clash from the Second Rope to gain the Win and progress to the Finals.

 Bobby Roode vs. Magnus – BFG Semi Finals 

Part of me wants to try and launch a law suit against Magnus, many moons ago when I was a humbled crafty E-Fed’er I went by the name of Jake Damons, one of my top most loved Created Wrestlers, whose catch phrase was “The Future Is Now!”

It appears Magnus was a fan of my feeble Writings and Storylines for his praise about being the Future, made him declare that the Future is Now!

And yes, I am fully aware that this is a coined phrase used in many other areas outside of Professional Wrestling, and indeed I was not the first, but I like to brag. One of my fondest memories was actually attending a 1PW show in Doncaster in 2005 I believe, (a good portion of the TNA guys were performing there) and me and my friends (fellow E’feders) saw some guy with a “Future is Now” T-shirt and I was proud… it wasn’t mine, but still, for that split second, I felt like I mattered!

Bobby Roode paced back and forth demanding to start the match, part of it seemed like they were fueled and ready for battle, wanting to get the match over with quickly to move on to the finals. But it also felt more like they were short on time and wanting to fit in more segments and longer matches to come, so they had to pick up the pace.

It was obviously going to be hard to follow Aries and Styles, but Roode and Magnus did put on a good solid match. As good as Magnus is, I do however still feel he is out shinned by the other stars. In the end it was Magnus who caught Roode with a Jack-knife cover and picked up the Win. A little naff at times to see a match of this magnitude end with essentially a “Roll Up”.

Roode continued his frustrations backstage, blaming the whole thing on Hogan… obviously


And Roode further declared that there will be no Winner of the Series.

 Speaking of Hogan, he sat down backstage with Manik (TJ Perkins… Suicide) for a rather odd segment. Basically it was the usual, “you look like a kid… but with the mask on, it works”.

TJ Whatever

I turned his “M” into a “W”! Yay Photoshop!

TJ wants a chance to prove himself, and asks for a match against Jeff Hardy, it’s like playing WWE Smackdown – Shut Your Mouth Campaign mode all over again.

Dixie then entered the room to break the news about Tito and Rampage being pulled from Impact, as they are getting “too physical” and it might ruin the appeal of Bellator MMA’s big Fight. Here’s a thought, let them be in MMA, and keep the Wrestlers in TNA… that sounds like it might work! o.O

Bully Ray vs. Mr. Anderson – World Heavyweight Championship – Last Man Standing Match

Hogan made the Match a Last Man Standing bout earlier on in the night, but I didn’t mention it then because it seemed to ruin the flow, the “Feng Shui” if you will.

Bully also had a segment backstage with the remaining members of The Aces and Eights, Knux, Wes and Garrett, saying how disappointed he is with how the Club is seemingly falling apart. And that he expects them to back him in this match.

Okay, sure, The Aces and Eights has had as many downs and ups, but like always when you watch a Video Promo of an up and coming match featuring The Aces and Eights, it is extremely good! I haven’t seen any type of Wrestling Storyline that actually runs the way it does, and sure on a week by week basis it feels watered down and takes a long time to get going, but watch it together as it has developed, it’s very good.

Before I go into the match itself, let’s just make this clear and point this out.

A lot of people really like Christy Hemme, and I was one of them, but a lot of people actually don’t like her. And Bully used Hemme in the match as a shield, and she seemed to damn near fall out of the piece of cloth she wore as a Dress.

Hemme Mess

“Aries insulted my Dignity!”

I’m not going to go into a big rant about being offended, I personally don’t care, but how can she build the entire up roar over Aries doing something in Character that worked, that could have easily tainted his position in the company, and in the same breath pretty much wear nothing on television herself. Stupid TNA even let it get that far.

I think it’s fair to say that Anderson has won the most “intense” Wrestler award, he was fantastic, and I don’t know if that’s because he was excited for Time off, or potentially leaving the company, or if he was just happy to be back in this position.

Either way, Anderson can at times be amazing, or dull, and finding that balance appears to be very hard, but The Aces and Eights has allowed him to be at his very best.

Again, Aces and Eights can be a bore at times, but my god was this match great. The crowd was all rallied up, and Bully and Anderson tore it down. Their look, the story, the attire, the music, a hardcore environment and a crazy crowd shows how much potential there is in this faction. To me, it reminded me of the much beloved “Attitude Era” that we have seen in a long time in any Wrestling organisation.

They can harness this and keep it running.

Either way, the match was great, it picked up with Bully pushing Hebner to the floor and Anderson dropping Bully with a Mic Check on a chair. This soon turned into Anderson being singled out, as Brooke Tessmacher herself dropped Anderson with a Low-Blow, and Knux, Garrett and Wes picked him up, delivered the “Kiss of Death”.. should be Knux’s finisher. And Triple Power-Bombed Anderson.

Knux Cuddle

Heading to a 9 Count Anderson got to his feet, Bully dropped him with a Chain Shot to the face that busted him open, again a close 10 Count later and Anderson got back to his feet. Finally Bully speared Anderson through a Table that kept him down for the Count. This is exactly how I’ve wanted a match to end for a long time, having just one guy keep coming against the odds, even in an losing effort.

Anderson was then Stretchered out of the ring by EMT’s who appear to have no idea what they are doing as they dragged and dropped him multiple times trying to get him on the Stretcher. But Bully wasn’t finished, throwing him to the floor, stripping him of his Cut, and finally Pile-Driving him on the Stage.

I get that the ending was powerful and no doubt serves as a way to get Anderson potentially off TV and maybe out of the Company, but I sort of hoped they would battle it out, and come back stronger. Especially if Anderson does finally take his punishment, sit in line and finally take out the President at a later date. I would rather he remained with the faction even if they didn’t get along, rather than just completely kick him out and injure him. This however does mean Anderson could come back and remove Bully Ray from being President and taking over himself, which I think the strength and longevity in this Faction would lie.

I for one hope TNA and Anderson come to an agreement on his Contract “apparently” and he remains with the Company, he is a true asset, and when he’s good, he’s great. But if not, then this will go down as probably his best match ever, and yet another strong contender for Match of the Year.

 The Cowboy James Storm and the Modern Day Viking Gunner made their way to the ring. This is the sort of segment they could have done backstage, or just not needed, but I guess it helped pad out the show and promote next week. Though it is flawed in a few ways.

Storm apparently was just happy sitting back and watching the BFG Series Finals, though he said Gunner wanted to fight, so they want someone to step up and challenge them.

Which is when Chavo and Hernandez stepped up to the Challenge, yay!

It does seem that Chavo could still be potentially turning Heel, stating that the best Tag-Team in the World is whatever team he is in. Which basically makes Hernandez expendable. And it’s also a big fat lie because Chavo sucks.

That is flaw number one, the biggest flaw is Gunner taking the mic and saying that if Chavo and Hernandez can beat them next week, they might get a title shot. (Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Wes and Garrett just beat them… where’s their title shot?) But more importantly, Gunner stated “Get in our business again, and I’ll bash your skull in”.. tough words. But, wasn’t the whole point of this segment because Gunner wanted to fight and called someone out, they came out, then he told them to get out of his business. Tough words, Thick as sh*t… now that’s a T-shirt!


 Magnus vs. AJ Styles – BFG Finals


So AJ actually had a different mix of his music, it was the same, only with less pause, and it worked even less. Surely they could have just decided on a mix by now, I could do it in 5mins, why it is always different.

Also AJ looked really beat, but that could be because his match was fantastic, and Magnus won with a Roll Up.

Regardless, it was a huge main event, and by no means could they outperform AJ – Aries or Bully – Anderson. Half way through the match the boys from EGO hit the ring and beat them down, only to be escorted by a group of Ref’s, and the match carried on regardless. So their plan sort of didn’t work.

Magnus once again tried for the Texas Cloverleaf but AJ countered with what I thought was a Triangle Choke Hold, but Taz declared it’s known as the “GoGoPlata”. So I’m sure Undertaker changed the name, because otherwise it makes him sound like he’s the Caterer at Funerals.

AJ was battling Magnus from the Top Rope and after a series of fast paced rapid fire Forearms to the Face, Magnus fell, leaving AJ free to land the “Spiral Tap” and pick up the win, moving on to the Main Event at Bound for Glory.

Well, I called it. AJ to Win, Day One.

I love the over a year long journey they took AJ on to get him back into the main events, and I am sure he will defeat Bully next Month also.

It’s been far too long since he’s been TNA Heavyweight Champion, and let’s be honest, last year’s match of the year was Bully Ray and Austin Aries, Bully had many great matches with Joseph Park, Bully had yet another Match of the Year contender with Anderson, so Bully vs. AJ Styles sounds like a perfect mix.

Things got slightly more interesting for after AJ won, he took the mic declaring that what he said a few weeks ago was merely the tip of the ice berg for how he felt. He then went on to Invite Dixie Carter out next week, so he can get the rest of his chest. No doubt the whole “Contract Negotiation” thing will come into play, which begs the question, is all of it a Work?

 Either way, TNA delivered one of the best PPV’s this year, and a packed card full of amazing matches. I for one am fully excited for next week, let alone Bound for Glory.

 Till Then.

 … Oh wait, did you think at the start I meant I was retiring? Slap yourself my loyal Blobs! I purely meant my Note Pad was full and would be retiring. I have a Thick Mighty 400 Page Brand New Note-Pad coming out next week, so stay tuned for fresh paper and dodgy scribblings!

Also yes, I totally worded it that way for a reaction!

The Jobber Blogger #66 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 5/9/13


Jobber Blogger logo2

I can’t help but feel that my tolerable level of TNA is diminishing. That doesn’t mean I hate it, but I guess with the recent layoffs (which I understand) the whole financial mess, Hulk Hogan seemingly getting himself in trouble, AJ Styles even having difficulties re-signing (or at least that’s what they want you to know). It seems TNA is in a very different position than it was, back in 2010 every show was exciting, new stars, huge twists, crazy matches, awesome talent. Now it seems to be struggling, they’ve recycled the crappy invading faction thing too many times. Aces and Eights turned out to be a big disappointment, any decent story like Joseph Park has been watered down and still running pushing a year and a half later, AJ Styles’ character change which was awesome has been ditched.

There is very little going for it that makes it exciting any more. I for one am a big fan of the BFG Series, but they didn’t seem figure that one well enough, to say they Write so far in advance, personally I don’t mind how they handled it. But what is the point for 12 guys to battle for 3 Months to earn a Heavyweight Championship Match on the Biggest Stage, hey, spoilers, Anderson declared his own Title Shot this week with a week’s effort, he did nothing, and he was in the BFG Series. For the remaining 11 Guys, that has to take the piss right?

Main Event Mafia is a joke, Aces and Eights is a joke, Chris Sabin having a fit is a joke, Hogan trying to be the GM is a joke, Sting doing anything is a joke, the Tag Division is a joke, the Knockouts Division is a joke, the X-Division is a joke, all they have going for them is the Heavyweight Championship, and they if lost AJ Styles, Bobby Roode and Austin Aries, who would really care about that?

If TNA are actually taking it seriously to “Re-Shape” the company, then they need to, and they need to quickly. Also Tito Ortiz and Rampage Jackson…. joke.

Impact Wrestling Logo



The Aces and Eights kicked off Impact with Bully trying to mend the holes in his faction. Declaring that they are in full control, and his “Boys” are the best Band of Brothers he could have ever asked for. More importantly there was a great “Tito Sucks” Chant, which I don’t know if that means he’s good at drawing a reaction from the crowd, or everyone just agrees he sucks.

Unfortunately with TNA’s current Financial issues The Aces and Eights faction, aside from Bully and Anderson is entirely made up of people TNA could easily “cut” from their Roster. And part of me thinks every time someone from the faction drops out of their Aces and Eights attire, they will be gone from the Company too. Well maybe not Garrett, but that would no doubt annoy people, for obvious reasons.

I guess in that sense Bully has indeed Created the perfect team to challenge TNA Management, a whole Faction of pointless, worthless, expendable talent that have eaten up Pay Checks for over a year.

Knux vs. Chris Sabin

I can’t say I ever really watched Mike Knox in WWE, I do however like his Character change and his new look within TNA, it does suit him, and it certainly suits the part he plays. But again, he isn’t likely to stick around, I think when they decide to cut him, he will be gone. That’s not a knock to him on a  personal level, but in the ring, he isn’t really anything special.

Speaking of not Special, this marked Chris Sabin’s first match since losing the belt. And just like when he fought Bully twice, Sabin spent the entire match on the floor getting his ass kicked. So just how the hell did he get a World Championship. I know Sabin is awesome, put him up against Beer Money, or back in the X-Division, he shines. Put him in the Main Events against the “big guys” and he sucks. So to me as a viewer, he just comes across really weak and pathetic… why do I want him as my Champion?

Austin Aries is a small built guy, yet he fought, battled and defeated Bully Ray in the Match of the Year last year, single-handily.

Anyway, after a long boring match of Knux beating up Sabin, Bully slides the Hammer into the ring, Sabin grabs the Hammer and hits Knux over the head with it, getting DQ’d and Knux picking up the win.

This led to an amazingly convincing backstage segment between Sabin and Velvet where Sabin paced back and forth blabbing about Hammers and he can beat them, and they brought them in the ring, and blah blah blah. Velvet walked with him pulling her hair out trying to tell him to calm down and that Sabin doesn’t need Hammers to win. Correction, the only way he actually beat Bully Ray was with a Hammer, aside from that, he got his ass kicked.

Angry Sabin

That aside, this “Angry Sabin” thing is rather dull. Sabin sucks on the mic, so trying to make him come across as Angry, guess what… it sucks. He isn’t convincing. This makes me think Velvet’s big “I missed the show” crap is indeed going to wind up linked to Sabin having like a mental break down or some rubbish like that.

Here is why I have such a big problem with this, Sabin has been battling the Aces and Eights since he returned and won the X-Division Championship, they bullied him, but he fought back, won the belt, lost the belt. He has legitimate issues with them as a Faction, wouldn’t it have been much better if Sabin lost the belt, then a week later just came out “Guns Blazing” and joined the Main Event Mafia purely to get revenge on The Aces and Eights? To me that makes sense.

Sabin wouldn’t need to be a MEM member, just helped them out because it would have served his own needs. That in turn would keep him fresh, and he could still be “Angry” but without being dumb at the same time.

Not only would that have helped solidify a decent grudge between Sabin and The Aces and Eights, but it would have freed AJ Styles up to continue with the path he was on. He could have kept to himself, kept focussed on the Belt, and just dominate and fight his way through the BFG Finals and take the Belt from Bully. Because as it is now, AJ is becoming the “Good Guy” through a heavy Scripted manor, of course he is also being pushed a lot, but they could have achieved that without trying to turn him. And also Sabin is looking like he’s turning into the same gimmick AJ just spent a year or more developing. That doesn’t make sense in my head?

Mickie James makes her way to the ring to deliver yet another good Heel Promo. She is really good at being a generic annoying woman. That is a good thing, I love Mickie, but she is good at being Heel, but in a way that makes people really like what she’s doing. However there is also a flip side to this, coming off of the controversial VMA’s performance from Miley Cyrus, Mickie tried her best to connect some dots between them.

Personally, I don’t think there is anything more in it than blatant name dropping to try and get some “controversy” and attention swinging back their way. But this just made TNA seem really desperate to try and pull headlines, rather than creating them themselves. I can tell you this, there will be Billions of people in the world who don’t like Miley Cyrus, or do like Miley Cyrus, but wouldn’t give a flying mop bucket about the VMA’s, yet they would have watched those videos and read those stories because of the Controversy that surrounds it. Eric Bischoff put it best “Controversy creates Cash”, so TNA, do something yourselves, rather than trying to link your product to places it doesn’t belong.

ECW didn’t have even close to the Budget TNA has, let alone the audience size, the television deals, and yet they created huge controversy, and had a huge “impact” on the Wrestling industry, before the time of the Internet.

So it really does make you question why TNA don’t try and do something really “big” to create that buzz. Hell WCW probably created the biggest controversial moment in the history of Wrestling with the formation of the NWO. I know times are different, but it seems they either fall back on the Stories that have already been done, or they just go in a completely opposite direction that no-one wants. And worst of all, they actually have some amazing Ideas, yet they never let them play out, or they change them, or they drag them out for too long, or they have no idea how to end it, or mainly the pay off always, Always, sucks.

Either way, Mickie James wore a Gold Top underneath her t-shirt (Miley Cyrus) talked about Twerking, and then ODB came out, who blabbed about something I didn’t write down and tore Mickie’s shirt off, and then she ran away…. Yup, to think the Knockouts Division used to be amazing.

Bound for Glory – Gauntlet 20Points


There are rumours that TNA didn’t know quite where they were going with the BFG Series, but I actually like how it turned out. I think a last minute final match for 20Points should be how they end the series every year. It can really change up the leader board for the final four. What they shouldn’t do though is hand out what, 4 other matches in the Series also with 20Points, because that didn’t really play that well. The whole idea is these guys are battling these intense matches trying to pick up the points. So it seems unfair to dish out so many points so frequently.

Also Taz mentioned on the same thing I was thinking, why did this Gauntlet run from the Lowest Scorers to the Highest. Basically the ones with the most points had the best chance of earning more points, so basically, if Magnus won, then nothing would have changed.

If it was the other way round, you would have the top four guys battling it out trying to win the Number One slot so they can pick their opponent. Not to mention they would have a further 8 Guys gunning for their spot in the Top Four. It would make a great dynamic to the board, but as it was, in the end, it didn’t matter. I get that those at the very bottom, even if they won the match, wouldn’t even make it to the top Four, but that would make them very dangerous, as if they were out to screw you over, with a nothing to lose attitude. Sort of what they tried to do with Jay Bradley, as he was apparently “paid off” to eliminate someone. Since his Gut Check, I’ve said put him in The Aces and Eights, so let’s hope that happens. Also in about 2 Months time, everyone from the faction will be fired.

The Gauntlet boiled down to AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels, which was a satisfying way to close out the Series, and AJ of course was on fire, and inevitably picked up the Win and moved to the Top of the Leader Board. Who doesn’t love AJ Styles, I’m just disappointed we didn’t get to see where his “No One” Gimmick was going…. yes, chances are probably “No Where”, but he was my pick from Day One, and I’m sticking to it!

James Storm and Gunner vs. Garret Bischoff and Wes Brisco (Aces and Eights)

The real question is, “why has it taken them so long to let a Team from The Aces and Eights feud with the Tag Champions?”. They could have done it from the get go, with Wes and Bischoff or Doc and Knux.

This seems like they are wanting to bring some fresh faces into the Tag Division, as they only have what, 3 Teams otherwise, one of which was busy in the BFG Series, the other we never see.

I think this really just sums up “How the mighty have fallen”, Storm was fantastic following a great run with Beer Money, his feud with Bobby Roode in the Heavyweight Division, an awesome Lockdown match, a great return, the favourite for the BFG Series, and then finally a good Street Fight with Roode at last year’s BFG, and now he’s what, another Mash Up Tag-Team Champion who barely even gets any TV Time. Storm is quickly turning into TNA’s version of Kane.

Storm is great in the ring, and has a great Character to boot, but since last year, he’s been boring as hell. Gunner has always been boring, sure he’s impressive and he’s looking the best he’s ever been since teaming up with Storm, but still. Garret and Wes? Who cares?

Like seriously, who cares? The Aces and Eights started out powerful, trying to take over the Company, winning all the gold, holding all the power, black mailing management. Now it’s just Bully Ray as Champion shouting at some expendable “soon to be fired” guys who dress as scruffy as possible. What does it matter if they win the Tag Championships now? Who cares about that, Bully doesn’t, TNA Management doesn’t, they won’t hold any power, because the Faction is created purely for Bully Ray. It sucks, it’s a terrible idea.

Wes and Garret cheater their way to victory which can only mean they will get a Championship Match either at No Surrender or work their way to a BFG Championship Match.

My guess is they will win, if Anderson can take out Bully Ray, then they could theoretically breathe new life in The Aces and Eights which would make it function as a group, and therefore holding the belts would mean something.

AJ Styles made his way to the ring to pick his Opponent for the Semi-Finals at No Surrender in the Bound For Glory Series.

I should note that AJ used his old music, so my guess is he’s completely done with the “No One” gimmick. Maybe keep the hair, attire etc till Bound for Glory itself, then change it back. Or he would have changed it back completely by No Surrender next week.

AJ chose Austin Aries, which means Magnus and Roode will complete the second Semi-Final match.

Not too shabby for No Surrender.

With AJ losing to Austin Aries a few weeks back, it would seem that with AJ’s current “change of mind” and focus, he will go on to defeat Aries.

So, I am not sure about Roode vs. Magnus, usually I would guess Magnus, but I would actually expect The Aces and Eights to screw him out of it. Though a MEM vs. Aces and Eights theme would suit what they’re going for, as Bully would battle Magnus in the main event. My guess is Roode will win via some low tactic, and AJ will defeat Roode.

Bully Ray vs. Sting

So TNA spent most of the show clarifying how this is a non-title match, and that Sting can never Wrestle for the belt again. This is no doubt to correct Hogan’s blunder from last week where he declared this a Championship match. Which no doubt he would have got in the neck for, and really begs the question, “why are you paying him?”

It’s even funnier, because recently Hogan had an interview where he said, and I quote ” Creatively I’m not involved. I cannot even begin to tell you the direction of a story six months from now backwards. But I do, on a weekly basis, get very involved with development and make sure ‘OK you guys, you have to mention that Chris Sabin is having personal problems and he is not here this week’ and mention that Rampage Jackson wasn’t supposed to touch Tito Ortiz this week. I make sure that we stay within the parameters of that we’ve drawn for ourselves.”

Perhaps Hogan should spend more time prepping himself, so he doesn’t go out there and just Repeat himself over and over trying to make announcements, and then of course making the Wrong announcements.

Not to mention probably the biggest thing that irritates me about TNA is how much they just shove things down your throats, as if their Audience isn’t smart enough to grasp it. Perhaps they are so worried about getting the Ratings, they worry if they don’t stress things enough, they will lose more viewers.

But half of the time, they don’t need to tell you anything, let alone constantly reiterate it. If you watch this week’s show, make a Tally of how many times they tell you that this isn’t a Championship match, and how many times they talk about Sting never being able to Wrestle for the belt. We get it, stop shoving it in our faces.

The problem with their Stories too, is that if they told them correctly, they don’t need to hold their audiences hand and walk them through it to show them what they’ve done. If you did it right in the first place, everyone would be clear. I bet most of the time people get it anyway, and when you start shoving it constantly is when it becomes irritating.

Bully kicked off the match bragging about Sting not being able to Wrestle for the belt,  this after a backstage segment with Sting talking about not being able to Wrestle for the belt, you get what I mean? That’s only two of MANY!

Hogan removed Bully’s “Muscle” in Tito Ortiz, but left Anderson and Tessmacher at Ringside… gee… that doesn’t seem suspicious. Though I always thought Anderson could wind up to be a Mole, so that would make sense… but still.

Also the match was declared a No DQ Match.

The match was fine though, it acted a Symbolic moment and reflection of their Slammiversary match. Where Sting had to Battle Bully Ray and The Aces and Eights themselves, and sure enough, Bully pulled back the Canvas and tried to Pile-Drive Sting, The Aces and Eights came out to help Bully (but not Tito.. coz that makes more sense…. o.O) and of course The Main Event Mafia came out to battle off The Aces and Eights.

Sting locked on the Scorpion DeathLock, and Bully crawled to Anderson for help, Anderson had a hammer in his hand but dropped it no-where near Bully Ray, who tapped out.

The friction between Anderson and Bully hit a fever pitch after Anderson lost the Gauntlet match, so Anderson saw fit to get up in Bully’s face and fill him in on the Details that he will face him next week for the Championship.

I have to admit, though predictable, the ending was good. Having Anderson angry and cocky and just.. Anderson is always great to watch, so I hope they can keep the ball rolling on all the work he’s done whilst being with The Aces and Eights, because before that, he was incredibly bland.

I’m not expecting Anderson to leave The Aces and Eights, I even suspect there might be a bit of “trickery” coming into play. Either way, will be interesting to see. I expect Bully to retain though.

The more stupid thing comes with Sting being proud of his Faction, because the exact same guys that made up “Team Sting” fighting the Aces and Eights months and months ago back at Lockdown, are the exact same guys who didn’t help him at Slammiversary, who are the exact same guys who are in Main Event Mafia. Yay Sting!

That’s another waste of making Sting much more meaningful.

Either way, next week is shaping up to be good, mainly with the BFG Series. It will be interesting to see where the grudges and alliances fall, because surely they will shape up Bound for Glory itself. I’m hoping TNA hit a home run and set up an amazing PPV in BFG.

All this mess hopefully will mean something.

Till then.
