The Infamous Informer

So this week it’s a country music special…. WHAT???? NOBODY LISTENS TO THAT SH!T!!! I remember there used to be a cable channel dedicated to that over here and a week later it got shut down! Plus I remember LL Cool J working with a racist country music artist and they tried to tell us to forget our slavery past and come together… er… NO LL, that sh!t 400/500+ years ago is UNFORGETTABLE. Why? Because it has brought us to this point today. We were told to NEVER FORGET our war heroes but FORGET about our ancestors that went through slavery and captivity??? GETTHEF**KOUTTAHERE!!

If you like country music, more power to you. It’s not my taste, but more power to you. You won’t find it here, this is RePPiN4U: Represent The Real Hip Hop presents this weeks Monday Night Raw, hosted by the Hip Hop living, Sword Swinging, Doo Rag Wearing, Diva Loving, Wrestling Fan Hating, Infamous Informer – GRANT BODY – P!!!

So here’s Maddox trying to get away from Randall, but he get ketch… and as Survivor Series is on the horizon, Maddox wants to survive… so he clapped down Randall… Randall dropped and looked as if to say – “HOW DARE YOU HIT ME!!! Now I’m gonna f**k you up!!!” Like when Han sliced Bruce Lee with his claw in Enter The Dragon and Bruce tasted his blood…. BAD MOVE!!!

Dwayne Johnson ‏@TheRock 18 Nov

Armed w/ ambition and a bad haircut.. today in 1996, I made my WWE début in Madison Square Garden.

THE GRANT SAYS: SALUTE! TEAM BRING IT FOR LIFE! F**K these traitors and hypocrites!!!

OH SNAP!!! The Miz has turned evil against Kofi Kingston!!! Now it feels like we just rewound back a year!!! Now I can get back to cussing The Miz’ rarse!!! Oh happy days!!!!

HA! HA! HA! Can you believe Vickie Guerrero tried to get out of fighting AJ Lee? A year ago she was bullying AJ Lee out of her GM role! Look at her now, faking dehydration like a b!tch! The medics find it funny that her blood pressure and all that is normal… so Stephanie dropped it like this – Yep – Vickie looks in a bad way, you must take her to the hospital straight away – RIGHT AFTER YOU TAKE HER TO THE RING!!!


Vickie yuh goose cook now! Now GET IN THE RING!!! ……..and SHUDDUP!!!

GRANT - BODY - PI’m loving this!!! AJ! TAMINA! GET HER!!! BRUKK HER UP!!!

Listen to the crowd! Oh they’ve come alive now!!! AJ! AJ! AJ! STAMP HER OUT! Remember how she treated you last year! Now you’re the Divas champion! DO IT!!! KILL HER!!! KILLLLLLLLLLL HERRRRRRRR!!!!! Look at AJ walking around thinking about it! This is a year in the making! Vickie is still tryna get out of it! What – she needs water??? GIVE THE B!TCH GASOLINE!

Oh… I think she’s okay now she can continue… RING THE BELL! Oh hang on Vickie is gonna make a run for it – OH SNAP – ran right into Tamina!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! That’s the funniest sh!t I’ve ever seen!!!! It was like I heard this –

THIS HAD ME ON THE FLOOR! This is straight Simpsons sh!t!!!! How the hell did Tamina not laugh during that!!!!

Maybe Tamina has a heart… she ‘let’ Vickie go… but she told AJ to GET HER! Look at AJ – skipping after Vickie!!!! OH SH!T!!! GET BACK INNA DE RING!!!

AJ is straight toying with the b!tch!!! Assuring her that it’s ok!!! OH NO – The Black Widow super move!!! That was quality! It would be even better if AJ gave her a good battering as well! Best segment of the night – F**K YOU WRESTLING FANS!


What’s going on here? Dolph Ziggler Vs Damien Sandow in a Country Music hardcore match? That’s it Sandow! lick down Ziggler with de chello!!!

Oh no Sandow why do you let Ziggler do the Double J move and lick you in the head with the guitar??? You acted without the benefit of intellect you ignoramus!

WTF was Cena doing with his arm in a sling? Oh seen!!! I get it! He baited Bertie in!!! His arm is ok! He’s SUPER CENA!!! Ok nice confrontation… NEXT!!!!

Hold on – what’s this??? Xavier Woods joined the main roster???? This is BIG!! Let me see his wrestling skill…

Rhinestone Cowboys? So it’s Country Music Vs Hip Hop right??? Ok this should be good, I hope justice prevails here…

YES Xavier! It’s Morphin Time! GWARN MY YOUT!!! F**kouttahere Country Music! I have an idea, why don’t the NXT Guys have a traditional Survivor Series match??? Mike Knoxxx you feel me though right! The other thing – When are The Ascension gonna join the main roster?

WWE2K14 gamers! GET TO CREATING XAVIER WOODS if you haven’t done so already!

OH HELL TO THE NO! What is this country music rubbish? GET OFF THE STAGE! Let me show you real music…

Just as I feared; CM Punk/Bryan/Rhodes Bros/Usos Vs Shield/Wyatts on Raw… this was the match that we all wanted at Survivor Series… look how epic this is… and it’s not on a PPV jump off… all I’m saying WWE is if you falter at Survivor Series and the fans b!tch about it I can’t defend you this time…

Hold up – The muthaf***!n fake American b!tches? Why the f**k are they involved? Oh yeah I remember the science – those b!tches are with the Shield against Usos and The Rhodes but a mystery partner… I heard y’all guessing, from Sheamus, to Mark Henry, I heard some far-fetched ones like Matt Hardy and Undertaker… but if you REALLY DID THE KNOWLEDGE it wasn’t really that hard…

There’s the mystery partner right there!!! Rey Mysterio! Haha JBL is still bex at Rey for what he did at WrestleMania 25! “what’s he doing here???” Damn he knows how to hold a grudge doesn’t he????

I don’t know which Wyatt bwoy it was, but Rey dialled up the 619 on his @$$, then got put to sleep by CM Punk, not before Danielson came through with his YES knee – BLAOW!!!!

THE GRANT SAYS THIS: Was that the real reason they didn’t do the big 6 vs 6 Survivor Series jump off? Well it’s not entirely forgivable, but I will be watching live anyway… but where??? That is the question. If the rumours of heavy snow is true by then… mi nah move from mi yard tuh blodclart!!!!








The Jobber Blogger #77 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 14/11/13

Jobber Blogger Spray

I guess Saturdays are the new Monday.. well, with regards to having time to Write, rather than the horrible feeling of dread when it comes to School, Work or the Dole Office (say hi to AJ for me).

Of course, it probably isn’t a good thing that my Blog brings with it a certain amount of Dread, that should be something I should correct, but time is of the essence, and the best thing about essence is that it carries a Distinct Smell. Sort of like Disinfectant, least only by the fact they share the same opening 3 letters.

I guess I could make a Disinfectant themed Jobber Blogger banner, I shall add it in my Ponder Basket and see what happens after I re-evaluate my “Can’t Be Arsed” Basket’s current dilemma.

Impact Wrestling Logo


TNA did a good job of keeping up its current standards. Since Bound for Glory the show has felt much more polished, even if it hasn’t quite gathered the initial excitement from the first show to follow the PPV. It’s certainly much better than having a big ranting issue about things coming just short of expectations.

The Aces and Eights kicked off Impact showing their new “aligned” faction. Part of me feels there were multiple ways this could have gone, BFG itself looked as if The Aces and Eights were going to show up in full effect once more, given Bully’s backstage promo had him talking to “unseen” former members. Then no one came to his aid, and Impact following looked as if Garret and Knux were responsible for getting Anderson out of Jail, and Anderson taking charge as a possible new leader. Then all of that was reversed to undo all of this “internal heat” and just keep Aces and Eights together as a faction.

Either way, I think it is safe to say The Aces and Eights are finished as of next week. Bully accepted Anderson’s match, and Anderson raised the stakes to if he wins The Aces and Eights disband, and if Bully wins, Anderson will leave TNA for good. Through in some nice heartfelt threats like “I would love to Pile-Drive you’re pregnant wife” and you have the opening of the show, with of course some lovely fighting to boot!

Knux vs. Anderson

Anderson didn’t want to wait till next week to get his hands on The Aces and Eights, so an impromptu match was added pitting Anderson against Knux. I think it’s fairly safe to say Anderson will be winning next week, though an unexpected twist or turn would be a lovely addition. Still, Anderson won’t be leaving just yet. I worry that if Anderson does the whole “solo” thing once more, will he go back to just being boring and irrelevant as he was before he joined The Aces and Eights. You need to find that sweet spot with him, and it’s between being Face and Heel, more Heel than Face is where Anderson thrives. He needs the old Stone Cold type backstage segments and great promo’s to keep him afloat.

As for the match at hand, Anderson spent the majority of it getting picked apart by Knux. Still seems like we’ve never really had a chance to see Knux be himself, I personally didn’t care till he stepped up with some great promo’s against Bully, but I would bet after next week we probably won’t see much of him again.

I can’t help but feel there is so much un tapped potential within the Faction, but on average I guess they didn’t hit it big with the audience, and they have probably dragged this all out far too much. The Aces and Eights will always remain as a stupid themed faction with awesome potential, that never ever achieved the heights people thought it would.

Anderson in the last second caught Knux with the Mic Check and won the match.

Also the mic check sucks, I’ve never understood that move, or even the desire for that to be you’re finisher. It looks awkward and messy to set up, and the payoff is minimal. But then Sting managed to make a Reverse DDT a Finishing Move, and that sucks just as much.

Christopher Daniels vs. Joseph Park

It seems a lot of “Story telling” is now going to be told by the Wrestlers themselves in their own time with these “365 – Where Action Never Ends” short videos. A novel idea, but if it pays off or not in the long run is what will be the deciding factor. On a personal level I find my own attention to Social Media to be lacking, it’s a cesspool of cowardly hate, and pathetic attempts to market apologies to anyone who should be remotely offended to the slightest thing.

Still, Park challenged Daniels because he through his Apple-Tini in his face last week. So Daniels in his own little video with Kazarian and later Roode, accepted, in his own hilarious manor of “He looked thirsty, so I gave him a drink, his stamina has always been in question”.

The story of Joseph Park is an odd one, I guess more on this later? But he seems much more capable in the ring, I know he’s been getting better. But straight away he seemed “confident or efficient” where as I only remember him being better, but anxious.

Joseph Park has also probably run his course, and really, when it’s all said and done, he is a great Character and extremely well played, but people want Abyss, and they want this to “go” somewhere. Rather than remain as stagnant as it currently is.

Daniels landed a Low-Blow on Park, and picked up the Win.

Ethan Carter the Third vs. Norv Ferman and Dewey Barnes – 2 on 1 Handicap Match

In what at first seemed like you’re basic run of squash matches, they have cleverly introduced 3 new Wrestlers. Whether or not Norv and Dewey will remain once EC3 has been “developed” remains to be seen. Either way, Norv and Dewey, little by little are getting more over with the audience, so a possible Team is not out of the Question.

What is more exciting though was the plugging of Playstation 4’s Launch Party Event on Spike TV following Impact. So I hope that helped pay off with some ratings. I would love to see Impact and Playstation form a type of Marketing Team. My favourite Games Company meets my Favourite Wrestling Company, it’s perfect!

Also EC3 won.


 Well thankfully it seems that this “Friends of AJ Styles” thing is actually planted in the show, rather than it just being ran. I am pleased Dixie acknowledges this, because it annoyed me a little last week.


Yes, I took the rest of Saturday off, something about a String of early mornings and late nights at work seemed to have defeated me yesterday. I went from feeling rather “with it” to a more tired, rushing type of sense. And all of you don’t read this for rubbish purposes! You read this to be entertained, to laugh, to smile, to hate me and never read it again.

So yeah, Dixie had a big Stink over the Friends of AJ Styles’ video updates, and she is determined to get to the Bottom of it. So much so that we even have a clip of her on Impact’s “Where Action Never Ends” Storming out of a Spike TV meeting, as they stated that AJ has a “share” of TV Time slotted to him. I personally would have used that time to just stand still and fart with a stupid expression, but I guess showing the Title Defence’s makes sense too?

Dixie then headed to the ring to talk about her “Most Brilliant Heavyweight Championship Tournament in Wrestling History”, for the record, it is a great idea! What makes it even better is she goes on to say “last week Jeff Hardy defeated… someone”. So I guess she didn’t watch the show.. or she forgot? But can we blame her? Really, it was Chris Sabin?

Forgetting Sabin

Dixie went on to announce the Match Stipulations between Storm and Roode, Joe and Magnus. Storm and Roode will compete in a “Bull rope Match” which I assume means they are tied together. Always been a rather “silly” idea, but there have been a few which have worked out alright. I have 100% faith in Storm and Roode to tear it down, but whilst on the topic of them both, Storm looked like a Main Event guy again this week. He has a great style, awesome in the ring, and he’s gotten so much better on the mic, it’s just a shame he has been bogged down in meaningless stories of late, so hopefully some higher calibre feuds are in his future.

Joe and Magnus on the other hand will compete in a “Falls Count Anywhere” Match, whether or not these two will go full on with their physicality is unknown, given that they might play the “mutual respect” angle, before Magnus fully turns it up. Either way, Magnus will be winning this one, and I would bet Roode will beat Storm too.

However Samoa Joe wasn’t finished, as he took this time to get on Dixie’s case about her “Bad Business Decisions” and Joe is determined to Win this Tournament and then he will defend the TNA Championship against AJ Styles, wherever in the world, like any honourable champion would. This marks the first time anyone has actually stood up for AJ, so yay Joe? I still think Joe, or Storm, Hardy (because he has too) and maybe even Angle would have dropped out of the Tournament in favour of AJ’s recent quest for change.

Gail Kim (w/Lei’D Tapa) vs. Hannah Blossom

Hot on the heels of Gail’s “open challenge” from last week, TNA Boot-camp star Hannah Blossom makes her first TNA appearance since the London Shows back in February. It’s nice to know she’s still around, and this seems like as good a time as any to Plug a Podcast I did late last year once more! So have it!

Although Hannah actually put up a good showing, it was Gail who obviously took the win, with the help of her Figure Four on the outside around the Ring Post, and then of course “Eat Defeat” for the pinfall.

But perhaps the biggest thing to mention was that I believe the Crowd were Chanting:

Lei'd Tampon

 Joseph Park came back to the ring, stating that he first came to TNA over a Year and a Half ago when he was searching for Abyss. Funny how he never actually found him and then since that point hasn’t bothered trying to find him. All I remember is that “Abyss” warned him that if he gets too close to the fire he will get burnt, and that he should stay away. And he didn’t stay away, and he was fine because of it. I am sure this was supposed to play into the Aces and Eights storyline, but nothing happened, so who knows.

Anywho, he loves the fans and can’t leave, blah blah blah. It seems after all this time, it’s only Bad Influence who have upset him, claiming he will never be as good as his “brother”, and to prove a point to himself, he is at least going to try. So Park challenges Abyss to a match next week.

This is interesting though, it’s like Undertaker vs. Undertaker, or Kane vs. Kane. Only this one is actually slightly more creative, given that he is playing both Characters, and doing so extremely well. They will either get a double to play as Abyss, or something more exciting will happen where he starts to come to terms with he is, his brother.

Austin Aries vs. Kurt Angle – World Title Tournament – Submission Match

Should I find it funny that Angle wore the “Main Event Mafia” T-shirt to the ring after they disbanded last week, maybe he didn’t want to be left on his own? Or maybe he just didn’t get the Memo?


Before this match gets underway, it is cut to go backstage, earlier on in the night The Aces and Eights wanted to cheer up Knux for losing, and all decided to go to the Strip Club, then Anderson got Garret who was stood in a corner by himself for some reason. Anderson handcuffed him, and then un-handcuffed him and carried him away. Makes sense…

Everyone knows Kurt Angle is great, but Impressive is the word I use on Austin Aries, I suppose Angle was impressive when he went into “Wrestling Machine” mode rather than being the silly Heel he started out as. But Aries just has “everything” in his arsenal.

Bobby Roode made his way to the Entrance Ramp and sat atop the stage watching the match, causing certain distractions for Kurt. And no, he wasn’t sat there making Arm-Pit trumps… although

Aries and Angle had a good match though, no doubt about it. Not on the same level as Angle and Roode, and not on the same level as Hardy and Sabin had last week. Angle countering Aries’ fast paced Dropkick into an Ankle lock was awesome, Aries’ set up of Dropkick / Brain-Buster and Last Chancery is always impressive. The best chain of moves came with Aries’ attempting a 450 Splash from the top rope, but Angle moved, Aries went to Roll through, but couldn’t with his ankle “injured”, Kurt grabbed him for an Angle Slam, which Aries countered mid move to a front face lock, once again looking for the Last Chancery.

The end came with Angle using the “Cross-Face” Roode’s finishing Submission, to get Aries to Tap-Out.

To finish the Show, Anderson came out straight after with a beaten down Garret Bischoff, Anderson then proceeded to Pile-Drive Bischoff on the entrance ramp, leaving Roode and Angle looking on in shock. Anderson then tore off Garret’s Cut.

Overall Impact was a strong show this week, and with Turning Point coming in fast for next Thursday’s Impact back in Orlando, it’s going to get even better.

James Storm vs. Bobby Roode – Bull rope Match

Samoa Joe vs. Magnus – Falls Count Anywhere

Anderson vs. Bully Ray – No DQ – Club vs. Career

Joseph Park vs. Abyss

Just to name a few, personally, I can’t wait!

Till then.

The Jobber Blogger #76 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 7/11/13

November 9, 2013 by DiVineDiablo

Jobber Blogger 7 11

I am on the Ball! Not literally, I tend to find chairs work best at a desk, though I have often contemplated sitting on one of those bouncy exorcise balls and rolling up the hip count, like Dwight. By now I expect everyone to realise that I speak utter crap, and obviously the very thought of Exorcise should tickle your thought bones! A Wrestling Fan being into Exorcise, hah! I think not, as I sit on my arse to watch over an hour of Wrestling a week stuffing my face with Strawberry Laces and the most movement I get is writing down pitiful, pointless, irrelevant comments for my Weekly Blog!

Yes! It Is I! The most pitiful, pointless, irrelevant Wrestling Blog on the Internet! Shove that in your Sock Holes! BRING IT ON!

Impact Wrestling Logo


Yup… if my “bothered” o-meter actually vibrated with productive tendencies, I might have actually got the “Chutzpah!” to make a Seven Eleven related Banner. Why is that even relevant? It’s not… really, that’s the short answer. I was playing that “Logo Quiz” game on my Phone and I got stuck on it, and I knew what it was, but all I kept entering was “Twenty Four Seven” damn you GTA and the years you’ve ruined my chances at Logo Quiz Games! It’s not violence that has sunk into my mind, it’s the incorrect names for shops, like I often question is it GAP or ZIP… which one was the less stupid of the two to be a Real Shop.

Dixie is seen backstage with, and I quote my notes accurately “Black Dude” when Anderson confronts her, asking for a Match with Bully Ray. Dixie of course is happy to play along as Bully has been the “Butt” in her thigh for quite some time now, letting AJ Styles make a mockery of her. Funny enough though, it’s literally Swings and Roundabouts because AJ Styles made a mockery of himself, or at least his “Friends” did, but more on that later.

Also I do believe that the new Voice Over guy sounds a lot like the Grindhouse Movie dude, and if that is true…. I am in heaven and I take back all of my criticism of his vocal chords and I shall kiss his blood stained shoes and concealed deadly weapon coat tails to the day I decide not to. Which might also be the same day I decided to take part… coincidently of course.

Main Event Mafia kicked off this week’s Impact, at least the “in ring” opening of the show, in what I would like to say is the best thing the Main Event Mafia has done… ever. And that’s to say “We not going to be a faction anymore” YES!!! This show is off to a great start.

Sting took centre stage to say that MEM was formed once again to Dethrone Bully Ray and to stop The Aces and Eights, and mission accomplished. Well yeah, I guess, but not really. Bully doesn’t have the title, true, but The Aces and Eights are still around, albeit a much worse version of what they once were. The idea that they needed to be stopped is just ridiculous anyway, they haven’t been a threat to anyone in over 6 Months.

Sting though is off on his new journey to Battle “Entitlement” which is as good a time as any to point out that:


“to give somebody the right to have or to do something”

“to assign a title to something such as a book”

“to confer an official position or honour on somebody that brings a particular title with it”

Well, on the heels of last week where Sting made no sense and angrily left Dixie’s office to whine and do what she said in the first place, I am thinking Sting’s new journey is of course to assign a title to something such as a book.

TNA Sting Book WWE Logic Wrestling

He did however make a point to have “Respect for the ones who came before you” to which he then Hugged Kurt Angle telling him he loved him, and then Hugged Samoa Joe telling him the same. He then tapped Magnus and walked away. Which to be honest, Magnus hasn’t really done anything wrong at this point, so it makes Sting look more of a sore loser, also no one really cares all that much, but I like the tension building between the two, so I approve.

Either way, no one likes Seeing Sting walking around with Shades and a Suit, what kind of look is that? Of course it could be worse as some horrible fan in the crowd pointed out, mocking the legacy of Sting.

Sting TNA Sign Bat

It’s either he was mocking him… or his Art really sucks…

Joe however had the best exit speech saying “we’re great friends, but I want to remind you why we make better enemies”.

Magnus blabbed about Winning the Title Tournament and going through Angle if he needs to, blah blah blah. Then Kurt whined some more about how his own moves defeated him against his Matches with Roode, and that he needs to Win the World Championship (for some reason again) to think himself worthy of the Hall of Fame. Of course, this all makes no sense, I don’t even know why half of these guys are willing to participate in the Title Tournament, surely Joe, Storm, Hardy, Angle etc would be on AJ’s side and refuse, and recognise him as the true World Champ?

Still, Angle’s rant caused Bobby Roode to come out and feel Embarrassed for Kurt who is “making excuses” this turned into a big Fight, that was on and off again for the rest of the show. At one point Angle remained in the ring on a chair and said he will wait all night, or even till next week if he has too, which is funny, because in TV World, next week is an hour and a bit away for Angle.

In the end MEM and EGO team mates tore Roode and Angle apart, then Kaz and Daniels attacked these Black Dudes in the crowd, the very same from the opening of the show, I’m not trying to be racist, I don’t know who he is. Turned out he’s PacMan…. which seems incorrect to me on many different levels…

Pacman Jones TNA

Also why is he taking a Dump?

Velvet Sky vs. Brooke vs. ODB – Knockouts Championship – #1 Number-One Contender

I think it is safe to say, no one cares anymore. The Knockouts Division looks awful currently, yes Lei’D Tapa is a fantastic addition, but she’s done nothing currently, and also “currently” her position looks as if she will be firmly kissing Gail’s backside for the foreseeable future… possibly.

Which means I am sick of Velvet, Brooke and ODB being in EVERY Match. But hey, they have no one else left, so they might need to work on that.

The main point of this match is for Gail and Tapa to keep getting involved, and then they just beat everyone up. The highlight however was a very intense face off between Lei’D Tapa and ODB who did not hold anything back as they wailed on each other. And no, I don’t mean in a literal alternative meaning / spelling sense.

ODB vs Lei'd Tapa

Gail then said she has beaten everyone in the Division, and there is literally no one left to Challenge her. Which is true. So she has issued an “Open Challenge” to any Female Wrestler in the World to fight her, and if Gail is beaten, she will even put up a Title Shot.

I LOVE Open Challenges, anything that has excitement about possible new comers. Of course this could also mean Tapa herself might attack Gail, which would also be great. But getting a new addition I think would be better, and then Tapa turned. Who knows.

Okay, so remember that Mockery of AJ Styles I mentioned, well because, as you know “he has left the company, and never to be seen again” crap, so on Impact, there was a Segment, which I kid you not, titled “The Friends of AJ Styles” who bring you amateur video footage of his recent Title Defence in AAA Mexico. An easy way to find out who is making these videos is find out where the team responsible for TNA’s utterly Poor Hall of Fame Ceremony footage are, and BINGO! Surely they could have found a better way to promote AJ Styles and keep him on people’s minds, without the need to bring you Video Segments, that is stupid. If you were watching a Match and then the video feed went, and you saw some footage or something, that would be neat, it would appear as if some people within TNA are on AJ’s side and pushing for the change in TNA. It could lead to great Segments trying to find the “Rat” in Dixie’s team who is responsible. Or they could just have Joe, or Storm talking backstage and mentioning AJ’s travels. Rather than a really naff looking title screen from the “Friends of AJ Styles” who send in video clips, which get played as part of the show.. because that’s normal.

The Aces and Eights have been blowing up backstage through-out the show, It started with Anderson confronting both Knux and Bischoff, telling them that the best thing they did was getting him out of the Cut, and for them both just to get out of the club. Garrett and Knux called Taz into the Ring, which would make this Taz’s what, Fourth Appearance with them in 10Months. Bully made his way to the ring also. This is where Anderson came down to Watch from the side lines, as Garrett complained about everything Bully has done and took off his Cut. Knux also said he was Finished with the Club, but a tie vote would rule in favour of the President, of course Taz off of the heels of last week saying the club sucked, said Anderson was right, and took of his Cut. Bully got in Taz’s face telling him to put it back on, and Taz went all high pitched and squealy as he said “Make Me!”

Bully turned all of this on Anderson’s meddling, and Anderson announced their Turning Point match will be a No DQ. Bully then said “for someone who worships Stone Cold Steve Austin so much, you forgot the first rule”. Which is when Knux and Bischoff attacked Anderson and threw him in the ring where Bully beat him down with his Chain.

Yup, I hope they keep this level of Aces and Eights shenanigans up, because that was awesome. I was totally sucked in to them shutting down the Club, I fully expected that was the way it was going, then all of a sudden, they were more united than ever. I honestly didn’t see it coming, so kudos, it was awesome. I want The Aces and Eights to grow, more members, more power, more chaos, I really want that. Like REALLY WANT THAT!!!!

Ethan Carter the Third vs. Dewey Barnes

I made a note to write down his name correctly this time, yup same old crap.

Though Dewey’s music is awesome, I shall look for it and embed it if I can find it.

EC3’s music is also good.

His finisher is the “One Percenter” and that is also good… but that is all.

Also two searches said I couldn’t find it… and that’s two searches too many!

Bad Influence vs. Eric Young and Joseph Park

Backstage Kaz and Daniels got at Park, throwing his Trick-Or-Treat “Candy” at him, saying how strange it is he is here this week, and Abyss is not. EY stepped up to save the day and challenge them to a match. Which led to a lovely awkward moment of EY and Park celebrating, whilst it was blatantly obvious Kaz and Daniels were stood at the other side of the room off camera watching.

I guess this is just building the feud between the two, and I hope it leads to Abyss / Park realisation, because I am bored of that story now, it just needs to “happen” or go in a different direction.

In the end Daniels grabbed the Time Keepers Hammer, ref went after it, Daniels through the Hammer, got his Apple-Tini, lobbed that in the face of Park, Kaz crucifix pin, and the Victory goes to Bad Influence.

Roode came to ringside a little earlier on in the night and shouted for Kurt, then left. So this time, Angle came out and shouted for Roode, saying he isn’t a hard man to find, which is ironic as Roode couldn’t find him earlier and Angle didn’t even come out to his challenge.

It was however Austin Aries that got in the face of Kurt Angle, as Aries and Angle will battle next week in the next match of the Title Tournament, and Dixie’s “Wheel of Dixie” determined it will be a Submission Match, so that should be awesome. Roode then came out and attacked Kurt, then all three of them were fighting each other. Yay?

Jeff Hardy vs. Chris Sabin – World Title Tournament – Full Metal Mayhem

Aside from the fact that every time they talk about a Full Metal Mayhem match which Jeff Hardy is taking part in, they feel the unnecessary need to label it “Tables, Ladders, Chairs…. and stairs”. When they did that before, I let it slide, but numerous times through-out the night promoting this match, they felt the need to include Tables, Ladders and Chairs, I get it. It’s his most famous matches, but that doesn’t mean you need to say those exact words, Full Metal Mayhem is a concept from TNA that explains the match type rather well. The fact they can’t say “Tables, Ladders and Chairs” which I’m sure is because it has some “copyright” issues, so they say, Tables, Ladders, Chairs and Stairs. Really? What matches do you remember where Stairs come into play as a deciding factor.

Also TNA plugged Jeff’s new CD, which without researching I assume is another TNA Released Album of remixed songs where Jeff badly sings on top of. I shall look into this further, but I am hopeful this CD, the aptly named “Plurality of Worlds” will sit among his other classics, such as:

“Disbandment of Soil” – “Eccentric Roll down the Hill” – “Waddle on the Wind” and my personal favourite:

Jeff Hardy Album

So with that rant over and done with, this match was Fantastic!

Everything you would want it to be, it delivered on. It actually took me by surprise, mainly because the majority of Match Types haven’t lived up to the hype of recent, Ultimate-X is the best example from BFG.  Adding that to the face that this is just Impact, rather than a PPV, they don’t tend to raise their game to big levels for a standard TV Match. But they hit big move after big move.

It was so destructive Jeff merely tried to open the leg of one table and pulled it clean off!

But in all seriousness he went flying off the Top Rope through a Table, even though the timing wasn’t perfect as Sabin started to move, then Jeff jumped, so whatever. Sabin also leapt off the top rope and Jeff put his knees up, still going through a Table.

I couldn’t tell if Sabin annoyed Jeff, he hit him rather hard, then Dropkicked the chair into his face rather violently, which looked to give Jeff some issues, I for one thought he might have lost a tooth, but I’m not sure. So in retaliation Jeff swung the chair over Sabin’s head in a fit of rage. It was brutal.

The finish came with Jeff literally throwing himself over a Ladder and free falling face first to the floor, to then last minute Roll it through into a Modified Swanton Bomb, and picked up the win.

I haven’t seen a match that delivered on this Brutality for some time, maybe not since Jeff and Aries tore it down with their Ladder Match. Regardless, I shall be happy to include this in my list of potential “Match of the Year” Candidates.

If you missed this match… go watch it…. NOW!

And if this is the standard the opening the Match of the Title Tournament sets going forward, then the rest of these awesome bouts should be fantastic to witness!

I can’t wait for Angle vs. Aries next week (hope Aries wins) and Impact pulled out some surprises with The Aces and Eights, and kept everything hitting hard and fast.

If they can keep this going, then TNA are chugging along with some major momentum in my opinion.

Till Then!

Monday Night Raw #1068: November 11, 2013!!!

Smack Talk Centre-Raw

It amuses me how this weeks Perfect Plex Radio show on BDSIR Network is entitled ‘We The People’ to honor Veteran’s Day… well your Hip Hop Reppin, Fried Chicken Eatin, Tekken @$$ whoopin, Total Diva Lovin Wrestling fan hating Infamous Informer has choice words about that… This week’s Raw takes place in Manchester, ENGLAND. If Zeb Coulter considers himself a veteran he will STAY THE F**K in America and don’t cross the borders over here. And if he does, I will raise my Size 12 Timberland Boots, honor the Jamaican/British Flag and say – I The INFAMOUS!!!

Jamaican Union Jack


WWF PROPA TINGZShout out to STC member Dean Winfield reppin at Manchester for the show!!! And big up the 13,614 in attendance! Yo – Smack Talk Centre is THIS WAY!!!

WTF is going on here???? Why is Brad Maddox, Vickie Guerrero and my hero Kane fighting over who Randall should fight… Why doesn’t my hero just chokeslam both their b!tch @$$£$??? Now look w’happen, Randall has to fight the Rhodes Brothers…. is this best for business??? Dunno about that but it’s best for my viewing pleasure… apart from the GM part just then… creative team fix up – MY HERO KANE IS IN CHARGE! That should have been an instant chokeslam!

Oh no the crowd are on one already! Chanting for JBL, ‘Randy’s boring’… oh dear!!! 13,614 people have paid their money!!!!

So let me get this right so I can understand this: If Triple and Steph are on vacation, who is Michael Cole gonna interview this week? I hope it’s my hero Kane!

What’s wrong Randall? You can’t manage the Rhodes Brothers??? He’s like f**k it! Me GONE!!! – RECORD SKIP – The Big Show???? He was reported absent on the register!!!! Him grab Randall – chokeslam through the announce table – BLAOW!!!! YUH DEAD NOW!!!

Wait a minute – The Big Show can’t just jump in a cab and head to the pub for a drink???? Ha – he might meet Sheamus or Wack Barrett on his travels!

Hold up – Los Matadores fight ‘The Union Jacks’??? Who are really 3MB? F**k this!!!! The crowd might love it, I certainly don’t!!!!! I’m going for a commercial break, let’s play one of my favourite British tunes since WWE is in England this week…
(Grant)GRANT - BODY - P
The beginning is still in my memory,
I was sittin’ in my school assembly,
Never listen to what da teachers tellin’ me,
I was thinkin’ “will I live to seventy?”,
And if I die will the world remember me?
Whos my friends and who’s my enemies?
Who will love and who will envy me?
Now I’m ready for whatever is meant to be...!

SHOUT OUT TO THE MANCHESTER UNITED FANS!!!!! (sorry Arsenal!! sorry Liverpool!!! You might be running the premier league dance but I think STC’s boss man slipped a cheque in WWE’s pocket Alex Ferguson style!)

So let me get this right so I can understand this: Next week on Raw its Raw Country from Nashville? Well THE GRANT SAYS when you gonna do Raw Hip Hop from New York or Detroit or Cali?????

Ok I skipped a few matches because they didn’t interest me. This one doesn’t either… but y’all excited. So for you, I’ll talk sh!t…. Dolph Ziggler! Curtis Axel! Intercontinental Championship! LET’S GO!

Actually this should be an even contest, Ziggler is all about PERFECTION, Axel’s father was PERFECT, so I expect a PERFECT match… yes??

The crowd behind Ziggler, but my dude Curtis Axel held down the title!!! YES!!! Talk sh!t now Ziggler d!ck riders!!!!! WHAT??!!!!!!

WTF??? Wack Ryder in charge of WWE Shop??? Let’s rob this muthaf***a! BREAK YOURSELF FOOL!

Blodclart – Bella Twins Vs Tamina & AJ Lee again???? no matter, just an excuse for me to fantasize over Tamina…

Why da rarse has Nikki got ‘Demon’ written on her socks? that’s not sexy! Oh I get it – Speed Demon… it matters not – KILL HER TAMINA!!!

Hold up – the crowd chanting – We want tables???? Yeah I’d lay Tamina over that table and (CENSORED!!!!) I gotta show respect to her father! That’s it – kick down her rarse, climb top ropes – superfly splash – BLAOW!!!

WHAT????? The Real American Pu$$!£$ are in England??? Muthaf***a!!!!

Yo CENA! You better f**k them up with your 5 moves! And don’t sh!t yourself (literally) doing it! The first verse is dedicated to you Zeb… YOU DUMB MUTHAF***A!

Oh dear! You gotta love the Shield mans!!!! Randall’s like – where were you mans when Big Show f**ked me up? Told Randall straight – we don’t work for Vickie, Brad , Kane, and not him either! They work for TRIPLE TEEF!!!!

I care not for Fandango or Tyson Kidd… f**k that – maybe I should join the Manchester crowd and sing the Fandango theme and take shots at Summer Rae…. shout out to Mike Knoxxx – he’s right – Summer Rae’s looks are not as hot as I previously assumed… just bend her over, choke her, spank her, pull her hair… you don’t need to look at the face that looks like she’s been in a d!ck sucking marathon! GRANT BODY – P!!!!

Ok this is it y’all!!!! COME ON CENA!!!! Destroy these border crossing muthaf***az! I THE INFAMOUS!

How dare this muthaf***a disrespect England! LETS GO CENA! All you Cena haters you get a Timberland boot in your fat @$$, and all you racist muthaf***az chanting ‘We The People’ get a black fist in your ugly @$$ pimpled up face!

Gotta say this match is maaaaaaad! The only time y’all should boo Cena is when he doesn’t let Cesaro use the giant swing. Cena has already taken TWO sho-ryu-kens from Cesaro, but the b!tch Swagger taps out to Cena’s STF! Did I fail to mention that Bertie was there watching, after the match he assaults Cena only to be saved by Big E Langston, and them stupid muthaf***az chanting ‘We the people’ are now chanting Big E???? F**k!n snakes!!!!

Some of you guys in the crowd should NOT be dancing when R-Truth tune drop! You got no rhythm! DeeJay from Street Fighter would be ashamed! Is this something that R-Truth is gonna start doing? Run a d!$$ record on his opponent like Mr Hardcore Thuganomics used to do??? I think he should!


Oh snap!!!! Ryback lose again!!!! Damn son…. WWE will probably keep him until they grab hold of Goldberg…. then if Goldberg f**ks him up then it’s the end of Ryback’s career for sure!

You know what I just noticed??? The announce team now have a new announce table! I want somebody to mash that up too!!! It would be great!

The crowd is loving this contest between Langston and Bertie…. a bit too much! now they are doing the Mexican wave…. badly!!!! Then they be chanting – ‘We are awesome!!!’ Well THE GRANT SAYS…. nah, not really!
Unlucky Langston…. when Bertie locks in that cross-arm breaker, THAT’S IT!

OH SNAP!!! LOOK PON PAUL HEYMAN!!!! He is f**ked up!!!!!!


Apparently it’s OUR fault now that Paul Heyman got buss arse…. My hands are clean… I had nothing to do with it rude boy! So it seems that the feud between Punk and Heyman is STILL not over!!!! Heyman swears vengeance… what’s he gonna do in that wheelchair???? Curtis Axel – you sir are a pansy – yeah I cheered for you earlier but that was then! Heyman gets more beaten with the kendo stick!!!! OH LAWWWD!

Ok main event time! Danielson & CM Punk Vs The Shield! Ok Roman Reigns, don’t trip up on the way down!!!

Kinda weird that this might be the first time CM Punk has clashed with The Shield… remember back in the day? They used to seemingly protect him and his title to make it 434 days… Yeah you CM Punk fans don’t remember that sh!t!!!

No way… CM Punk and Danielson may have this match won…. hol on… The Wyatt Family!!! OH SNAP!!! The Shield and The Wyatts clash!!!!!! LAWWWWWWD! But wait! They have a common enemy! Punk & Bryan! UH OH!!!!  think their goose cook now!

WAIT A MINUTE! The Rhodes brothers! the Usos!!!! BACKSIDE!!! It’s all out ruckus now!!!! Ok this is how it’s going! 6 Vs 6 at Survivor Series! The Shield/Wyatts Vs CM Punk/Bryan/Rhodes Bros/Usos! It’s gonna be MAAAAAAAD!

SMACK TALK CENTRE: Where are we going to watch such epicness????










The Jobber Blogger #75 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 31/10/13

Jobber Blogger Halloween

In what is fast becoming the most fantastic yet late addition to anything on the Internet, the Jobber Blogger rolly polly’s his way back to the Computer Desk to bring you all the latest happenings from the World of TNA: Wrestling!

So the internet is going crazy about TNA being up for Sale. Of course I have even toyed with the idea of buying the company, but a below part time job at the Cinema on minimum wage tends to make buying anything hard work. Ahhh, what would I do if I could buy TNA… well I guess really, you wouldn’t get to do much, you’d just own it and probably not put in much input unless you really wanted to. But then of course you could just screw it all up. Either way they strongly claim that it isn’t actually up for sale… so who knows what’s going on.

TNA is still moving in some good directions, but this week’s show didn’t capture the excitement from the previous week’s, but that doesn’t mean that some ideas aren’t good ones!

Impact Wrestling Logo


Yep, going back to October and even Halloween right now, seems strange and really behind. Either way, wasn’t Halloween great! I certainly enjoyed mine, but the imminent threat of arrest really put a downer on my Trick-Or-Treating.

Dixie Carter kicked off Impact, a reoccurring trend of late, also on the flip side, my mash up Heel Theme for Dixie has 1 Thumbs up and 1 Thumbs Down, Aww Yer! Keeping it Neutral!

Dixie had a fit about AJ walking out on her last week, and went on to claim that AJ Styles “No Longer Exists to me, and no longer exists as World Champion, he is no better than the Kids Dressing Up Pretending”. Well, the whole thing does reek of CM Punk leaving with the Championship, and then coming back to face Cena once again. The only Solace in this situation is that the build up was better, AJ Styles can Wrestle really really well, and TNA don’t have someone as monotone as John Cena, so the pay off should be much better too. The downside though, is that only a fraction of the audience will ever watch it.

Seeing as AJ has hopped and skipped his way out of a Job and down to his Local Dole Office, Dixie was forced to take action. And her action is to create a 8-Man Title Tournament, sort of like King of The Ring, only with match Stipulations and 7 of the entrants are former World Champions:

James Storm, Samoa Joe, Kurt Angle, Jeff Hardy, Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, Chris Sabin and the final Eighth Man to be determined from a Gauntlet Match later on.

AJ Dole Office

Bully Ray stormed to the ring for not being included in this Title Tournament, but that led to Dixie just blaming him for being the sole reason they’re in this mess in the first place.

And then Anderson once again leaps out at Bully Ray and beats him up some more… gets arrested yet again.

Then backstage Brooke distracted Anderson as he was being escorted from the Building, and Bully Ray then beat him down with his chain in a lovely Violent manor. Huzah!

James Storm and Gunner vs. The Bromans – World Tag-Team Championships

Yes, the Bound for Glory Rematch we’ve all been waiting for! That’s kind of sarcasm, though their match at BFG was actually rather good. The same however can’t be said for this.

I kind of hope that Storm will move either back into a Title Picture type of role, or at least be more present in AJ Styles’ Band of Brothers thing when he comes back.

As for Gunner, I think he has now been given a good platform, so they just need to “Unleash” him and make him a little stronger of a Gimmick, I’m telling you, Face Paint would look awesome! Let him be impactful, intense, dangerous, and you have a great star in the making.

And of course The Bromans can go on and hopefully help form a good Tag-Team Division again.

Storm suplexed Jesse into the Ring from the Apron but Robbie E held onto Storm’s leg from the outside, thus he couldn’t kick out of the Pin and The Bromans stole a victory!

Why Storm can’t use his other leg to kick out, or anything, who knows. It’s Wrestling… It doesn’t make sense!

Ethan Carter the Third vs. Norv Ferman

Yep, the skinny dude from BFG is back to fight EC3 and just like the first time, I couldn’t be bothered to write his name down, so I shall assume it’s right.

What exactly do I have to write about… same old. Squash, Win.

I get it, it’s the old Wrestling Tradition of the Squash Match to put across new Stars, and in this case, the fact he is “Dixie’s Nephew” means that she is pulling the strings to make his life easier.

However, who cares.

I think that sums it up well… He is impressive so far, and I look forward to seeing him in action with the likes of Austin Aries… then I will cast my judgement.

World Title Tournament Gauntlet:

Sting and Kazarian kicked it off, and yes, Sting was back in with a Chance of Winning the World Championship, this all came about earlier on in the night.

Dixie Carter and Sting shared a rather little amusing backstage segment, where she told “The Icon” that she will lift his Ban of never competing for the World Championship, and put him in this Gauntlet match, where he can Enter as #1 and work his way to Victory to prove he has still got it. But for some reason Sting responded with a very confusing attitude: “This is the why I feel, I feel like I have earned every single thing, every single step of the way for myself, and I, have never had a sense of Entitlement… Dixie!”

And then he left… what the hell does that mean?

What makes it worse is that he sounded like he was throwing this back in Dixie’s face for he can Earn Everything for himself… but then he took the opportunity anyway. Crazy man.


The Gauntlet had everyone from Eric Young to Manik, but there’s little point doing a rundown of who entered when and who eliminated who. The best thing to mention is that when Knux was eliminated, Taz said “I’ve got to get out of this club, it sucks!”

I really hope they give The Aces and Eights a makeover, put Anderson at the top and build it back up, they can be crowd favourites, but not Faces, it would be awesome.

Either way, as predictable as you’d imagine, the final four was Bad Influence and Sting and Magnus. Daniels got eliminated, and then Sting tried to eliminate Kazarian, where Magnus pushed both Kaz and Sting over the ropes to pick up the win and move himself into the Title Tournament.

Where I will go out and say right now, Magnus will win this Title Tournament, probably be the new World Champion, or at least Dixie’s World Champion, or get so close, before AJ Styles returns.

By this point Magnus will be the top Heel and fully aligned with Dixie… which is no bad thing really.

ODB vs. Gail Kim (w/Lei’D Tapa) – Knockouts Championship

Again, this match goes just as you would imagine it would. It still bugs me that Lei’D Tapa is Gail’s bodyguard, I honestly feel that this really stuns her debut in a big way. She was quickly becoming something new and exciting, but then just as quickly became boring. She’s like a talented female Rob Terry.

Lei'D Tapa Train

ODB and Gail shared some nice Submission Reversals which was rather impressive from both, specially ODB, not in an insulting way, just we expect it from Gail.

In the end however Lei’D Tapa distracts the Ref, Gail gets a quick Roll-Up, holds the Ropes and Wins. Woo!

Bad Influence were in full blown Sherlock Holmes mode this week where they were determined to uncover the Mystery Case of The Monster Abyss. Any segment they get to be themselves in, is TV Gold. Why they aren’t the Tag-Team Champions, I don’t know. They get loads of Air Time, because they are unique, funny, talented and amazingly entertaining. Put the Tag-Belts on them, then that gives the Tag-Team Division much needed Air-Time, plus boost Bad Influences credibility and the potential for Tag-Team Feuds / Matches and Title Defences are increased 100%… makes sense to me. My only hope is that Bad Influence could take the belts from The Bromans in a good feud that would put Bad Influence in a “Crowd Favourite” position, whilst still being themselves.

Regardless, they declared that Abyss is located under the ring, where they pulled out a Pumpkin, and said that Abyss is just another talentless vegetable.

Eric Young who was dressed as Joseph Park made his way to the ring with a Message for them both, and then he hit them. How classy. So yeah, Bad Influence beat up EY, and then Abyss made his Return… again… again……. again? How many times has he returned now?

Then picks up EY like he did at BFG. Is Abyss going to be around now, or was his appearance purely because it was Halloween. Joseph Park is a good character and really shows how Talented he is, but come on, we all want Abyss. I suppose if they can balance them both for a while… perhaps they will just merge into one, which could have some rather good story lines attached to it. Only one can hope though.

Bobby Roode vs. Kurt Angle

The other Bound for Glory Rematch.

Roode tried his best to get Angle proven not Medically Cleared to Wrestle, and apparently he was cleared but not advised.

The match obviously had strong resemblances to their great bout at BFG, and I would hazard a guess that this feud will continue, probably through Dixie’s Title Tournament, and will probably be the reason neither of them make it to the finals, and then that would carry on further. Certainly the potential between the two of them is great, especially in terms of great in-ring matches.

Roode once again used this Death Valley Drive – Neck breaker – Cutter thing that he showed off at BFG, I really hope this move sticks around to be his Finisher, it’s a great move.

Roode made his way to the Top Rope, where Angle did his patented Run – Double Under Hook Throw off the Top Rope. Both men crashed hard, Angle struggled to Cover Roode, Roode kicked out.

Angle then seemed to have a type of “Fit” and Roode won the match.

So all in all, it was a good ending to the Match. Roode won, which was the best possible outcome, and Angle got to live his dreams of having a little mid ring Boogey-Jiggy.

On a serious note, or as serious as you can be with Wrestling, the idea is, that Angle had no idea what was going on, and is in fact rather injured, so… who knows. Maybe he will come back like Perry Saturn.

Angle Wig

Till then!

Monday Night Raw #1067: November 4, 2013!!!

Smack Talk Centre-Raw

Smack Talk Centre Ray Logo

The Infamous Informer

The way I got it figured, if you are reading this right now, it means either one of two things: One, you haven’t got the new Call Of Duty Ghosts game. You probably haven’t got WWE2K14 either. Don’t worry, I’m in the same boat, only difference is, I DON’T WANT Call Of Duty Ghosts: I love my woman, and she is my Call Of Duty. I don’t want to be turned into some muthaf**k!n Ghost over a game, YOU FEEL ME! The other thing why you may be reading this, is because you just wanna hear another dose of the Hip Hop Reppin, Jerk Chicken eatin’, Supermalt drinkin’, diva loving, wrestling nerd hatin’ INFAMOUS INFORMER!!!



First time we see Luke Harper of the Wyatt Fam in singles competition… Why you looking surprised Harper? CM Punk rolled your b!tch @$$ up and pinned you… he is the best inna de wurl!!!

You know the Wyatts are not about wrestling matches anyway… they like to f**k up people and make them follow the buzzards… and just as they were gonna f**k up CM Punk, here comes Mr B+! Chair swinging! Crowd going buckwild for their two top anti heroes as they combine their force to fight off the evil that is the Wyatt Family! If this is leading to Survivor Series traditional jump off both parties need more people! In a way I can see the Wyatts teaming with Curtis and Dryback… but only time will tell..

Speaking of Dryback… OH MY DAYS!!! RYBACK WON A MATCH!!! (It was against the not so great Khali Grant….) er… oh dear….what was there to gain from that?? Nothing… lets move along…

Another great match-up by Kofi Kingston and my man Bertie…. but I swore blind I saw this last week on Smackdown…. come on, I’m yawning here, and it’s daytime! I didn’t watch live! Where’s the jokes? The storylines??? The gyal dem???

So ok, the WWE Universe choose Big E Langston over The Miz and Dolph Ziggler to face ladies favourite Randall Orton? At last they have finally understood. A few months ago Langston was ‘underneath’ Ziggler, the WWE Universe were on Ziggler’s d!ck… now Langston is DA MAN now???! HA!!!! Landslide vote of the Pink brief wearing greasy head top!

I noticed someone in the crowd with a sign saying ‘I NEED FIVE!!!’ A double reference to Langston saying that in NXT, and King Kong Bundy saying it from back in the day. I say BRING THAT SH!T BACK LANGSTON! Gotta have those jokes rude boy!

Big E went H.A.M. on Randall, but dude hit the RKO – BLAOW!!! Unlucky Langston, keep striving!!!! And for god sake do something about your head top! Don’t let me have to send for Cedric!

RAH-TID! Tyson Kidd finally decides to get off his @$$ and get back inna de ring! You know Christmas is coming when you see Tyson Kidd! He was injured for like what, 3000 years??? Good to see him back, but even better to see Natalya and Summer Rae fight!!!

Meanwhile in the Zeb Colter Vs Infamous Informer feud…

Zeb Colter ‏@WWEZeb 19h


WELL THE GRANT SAYS: I AGREE WITH YOU… So I don’t expect you to cross the British Borders when WWE comes over here live next week… then again I HOPE YOU DO… so I can F**K YOU UP!

Wait a minute didn’t we see Cena/Rhodes Bros Vs Sandow/Real Americans on Smackdown last week? F**k this I’m watching Cheaters…

…and while Curtis Axel Battles Dolph Ziggler now is the time to grab a Real McCoy’s Man Crisps and a Crunchie… and a KA Pineapple fizzy drink… damn not feeling this weeks Raw man!!!!

Give me a reason to get back into this sh!t!!! Usos Vs 3MB??? Oh we have some twitter amusements!!! Ok let’s get into it…

Zack Ryder ‏@ZackRyder 10h

BIG SHOW’S HERE! #IAmSeriousBro #Raw (I’m here too)

THE GRANT SAYS: WE STILL DON’T GIVE A F**K ABOUT YOU….. BRO!!!! Apart from that – Didn’t Triple say that Big Show was banned from WWE for life??? I’m saying hmmmmmm…

GRANT - BODY - PHooray!!!! 6-Diva tag action!!!! Beautiful lady, (Go Ladies), lovely lady, (GO LADIES!) Bella Twins & Eva Marie Vs AJ Lee, Tamina and Aksana… LET’S GO!!!

DAMNIT I love Tamina… like, she my favourite wrestler out of the lot of them, but LAYLA remains the love of my life… Luckily for Brie Bella she managed to get out-of-the-way of Tamina’s superfly super move…

Hold up – Eva Marie tags herself in, rolls up Tamina and gets the three???? LAWWWWWD! Eva Marie WIN!!! That is HUGE!!! She stood there at the apron the whole time and tagged in when the time is right and got the pin! WHOA!!! She’s going to WrestleMania – No diva can beat her!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA! SHOUT OUT TO Jazz Kumar and Brent Armstrong of the International Wrestling Fanbase!

Look pon Tamina – she is furious!!!! Look at the referee trying to restrain her – my god I wish that was me…. Oh my…. OHHHHHHHHH!!! I need a song for Tamina…

I lose, my cool, whenever you’re around, I can’t help myself…..NO…oh NOOO!!!!

Alright more jokes!!!! This is what it’s about! Not no pointless wrestling matches!!!

So I get it, Big Show wants his job back…. so after all that ruckus he be causing, all that truck driving into the arena business… seems like Big Show’s last paycheck is finally depleted. I don’t think Triple wants to comply… but Stephanie will!!! All is ok in the world! Nah there must be a catch surely!

Big Show ready to drop the lawsuit as well? Well at least he is an honest and unselfish man… Don’t wanna make WWE bankrupt when WrestleMania XXX is round the corner! Ooooh we don’t want that!!! Look at Triple TEEF!!!! He looks like he wants to send for the world’s largest hammer and clap Big Show upside the head with it! But asking to be the FACE of the company??? INJUSTICE! SEND FOR THE SHIELD!!!

HAHAHAHA! Look at Triple TEEF! leaning against the ring ropes with his left leg at an angle supported by his toes!!!! “Er… you asked for something????” With that simple motion, Triple TEEF has smashed it!!!

What is this – ‘Who Wants To Be Punched Through School Buses???’

Big Show: “What I want, what I deserve, is a WWE title shot against Randall Orton…”

Triple: “You lucky you got your job back, you should be grateful, now get out of my ring before you end up in a puddle of your blood…”

Big Show: “You sure about that?” (Big Show has a point – Blood is not allowed on a PG show!)

Triple: “DAMN SURE…”

Big Show: “FINAL ANSWER????”


At this point Big Show should have said we will find out if Triple wins the Million after the break!!! But since you wrestling dorks hate the commercial breaks, lets find out now…

OH SNAP!!!! looks like the attorneys are on their way to the WWE Board of Directors in the morning!

OR MAYBE NOT!!! It bunn Triple! It BUNN HIM!!! He had to grant Big Show his title match at the Survivor Series! He knew that the attorneys would nyam Triple for breakfast, lunch, dinner and then Stephanie for the dessert!!!! OH YEAH!!!!!!

Well the Shield and Orton have come for Big Show’s clart!!! But then… FYYYRE!!!! IT’S KA………………….

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO MY HERO KANE?????!!!! What is this? Suit? Tie? Trousers? Shoes? Paul Bearer must be turning in his grave… and he wore suits!!! He’s probably thinking… NOOOOO! MY KANE!!!! MY SON!!!


This has caused another uproar within the IWC… but let’s do the knowledge real quick… some of you IWC idiots just had to dig in and discover that outside of the ring, Glen Jacobs has found himself in politics…. now they wanna bring that part of the character into WWE TV… I suppose that whoever Glen is working for outside of WWE don’t like the idea of a ‘monster’ who sets people on fire and chokeslams women and tombstones priests running for a major position in future…. well ain’t that a b!tch!!!! So THE GRANT SAYS: Why are you all so surprised???

Look pon this… RKO by Randall – BLAOW!!! Ka- er I mean Glen throwing chairs into the ring! Well so much for him being a ‘Wyatt’!!! The Shield beating down the Big Show! Glen setting up the announce table! Roman Reigns taking down The Big Show with the steel steps! Setting him up, The Shield, triple powerbomb through the table – BLAOW!!!!!!!

I’m surprised Triple didn’t get extra licks in!!! THE GRANT SAYS THIS – OK I was wrong about Randy not facing Big Show at Survivor Series because he is, maybe we were all wrong about the Shield breaking up – you were wishing for that sh!t ever since they arrived on the scene!!! HA! What’s wrong with you people??? But my hero Kane….. Kane…… KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE!!!!!!!!

The Jobber Blogger – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 24/10/13

Jobber Blogger logo2

Well don’t they say “better late than never”? I know I’ve used it before as a saying, but I would first of all like to Apologise to my Blobbers for the lateness of this Blog! Still, tough luck and grow up and quit your complaining. Work is work and work is busy! You’re lucky I do this at all!

Of course that’s a joke, even if I often fear that those whom don’t know me will just be outright offended. Regardless, I’m writing this!

Speaking of pointless complaining, apparently that’s what has been surrounding this week’s Episode of Impact. Why though.. I don’t get it. Haters be haters.. and they also tend to be idiots… so there is that.

Impact Wrestling Logo


Dixie Carter kicked off the first Impact post Bound For Glory, and she did so by debuting a brand new “Dixie Land” Theme Song! Okay so it’s pretty much a “Heel” Version of her old song, personally I would have just got the original song and done something a little like this:

Yup, that was a rather lengthy detour from Writing this Week’s Jobber Blogger. But still, my first venture into adding Creator Owned YouTube content into my blog.. aside from Plugging the TNR Podcast which seems to have died a fiery death!

Dixie’s new Dixie Land slogan sounds like the Dreams of Walt Disney and the twisted yet socially acceptable version of Michael Jacksons backyard Theme Park. They want to push this that much, that they even have a “Dixie Land” T-shirt up for sale… surely they could have jazzed it up a little more…

Dixie Land tshirt

Dixie had the Ring all laid out to Praise the new World Champion: AJ Styles. Blabbing on about made a mistake, and proud to call AJ the new TNA: Champion.

AJ of course made an appearance but wasn’t buying any of it, the full use of “Evil Ways” yet again was a great touch! Dixie said her recent attitude was all about “Motivating” AJ, and from the Slump he has been on for over a year, she did what she could to give his Career that much needed boost. Of course part of that actually rings true, she even offered him his own Private and Personal Locker-room nearly as nice as hers, his own Watch, and a Fancy Convertible.

Obviously AJ didn’t succumb to any of Dixie’s high price tag offerings, the whole thing had a lovely mixed message of “I get what you’re doing here” but on the flip side, if this is how she “really acts” then no wonder TNA are losing money. A more interesting thing to question, is all of this actually worth more than the $50’000 she offered him prior to BFG?

Bully made his way to the ring, going on about AJ being lucky to have beaten him on Sunday, the usual shtick. The whole thing ended in a fight between Bully and AJ, which is when the lights go down and Mr. Anderson made his return.

How great was it to see Anderson back, he left at the highest level he has been in his Career thus far, in my opinion. Sure you could say he’s been World Champion before, but I think Anderson had finally found that sweet spot of not just being that reoccurring Gimmick, but a way to blend all of his ideas and all of his personality perfectly into a Story. And that was achieved because of The Aces and Eights. So I am glad he decided to stick around with TNA, and his return was “Impactful”.

After Anderson beat down Bully Ray to the point where he tucked tail and ran, he picked up the mic to do what he does best. Anderson went on a Rant about how much he is sick to death of Bully week in and week out. But the whole thing was cut short when Dixie made her way back to the ring this time with security and called for Anderson’s Arrest, stating he isn’t allowed in her ring. Anderson fought down some of the Security before letting himself get arrested and yelling “Good Bye” as he was taken out of the Arena.

Sure, you could say a lot of it was very “Stone Cold” inspired, but Anderson has always had that part of his Character down to a tee. Having Dixie as a Heel boss really builds some amazing friction already between her and Anderson, having him get arrested made it feel fresh, exciting, and the taste of an era we all cherish.

Gail Kim (w/Lei’D Tapa) and Brooke vs. Velvet Sky and ODB

A Knockouts Tag-Team Match is always a good thing to see, though there was very little friction between Gail and Brooke, despite Brooke was the one who took the fall from Lei’D Tapa leaving Gail to win the Knockouts Championship mere days before at Bound for Glory.

I really hope TNA do breath some new life into the Knockouts Division, but these four easily fill out the best of the best they have to offer currently. The addition of Lei’D Tapa of course is most exciting, but I still can’t get as excited about her potential whilst currently being assigned to Gail’s bodyguard.

In the end though it was Gail who tried to bring a Chair into the match which got the Referees attention, and that led to Lei’D Tapa getting involved and taking out Velvet with her Big Boot, and Gail Kim picked up the win.

 Ethan Carter the Third vs. Dewey Barnes

I don’t know how to spell this guy’s name, I didn’t pay that much attention and my desire to research it is nil and void.

What isn’t nil and void is my desire to point out the bizarre ring introduction from Christy Hemme, for she said “The Following!” then stopped, then repeated “The  Following!” then stopped, then finally did the introduction to EC3 and the Match at hand. Three times the Cham, EC the Third? Coincidence?… Probably.

This Dewey Barnes chap had some rather catchy Entrance music though, so that’s a positive for him, and Carter’s awesome front falling DDT / Cutter thing is awesome. It was what I found awesome from the BFG match and totally forgot what happened…. so there it is.

Sting and Magnus had a backstage segment where they made amends for how Bound for Glory ended. Magnus declared he “didn’t show the right  amount of Respect for what Sting did for him” and Sting just hoped he put Magnus on the Map, and passed the Torch. Well it was a nice thought Sting… but.. no, I don’t think you did.

Either way, they finally shook hands and made up! Aw, isn’t that all sweet!

Barney Magus Sting

Kurt Angle made his way to the Ring to tell everyone he knocked himself out doing his own move. That seems like a stupid Finishing manoeuvre, but hey, I didn’t win a Gold Medal, so what would I know.

Angle Defeated

Angle always likes to Share how much damage he did to himself in his matches, which is funny really when the other guy did very little of it. Angle went on to talk about how Sting’s speech made Angle realise that he had more to achieve before he could be inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame.

Roode interrupted Kurt to brag about how be beat Kurt fair and square. And that two years ago it was Angle who cheated to Defeat Roode in the main event of Bound for Glory, and for two years Roode lived with that defeat.

Kurt wants a Rematch, but apparently he isn’t Cleared to Wrestle, so they did the all “Never said anything about Fighting!” and brawled, and next week (this week) on Halloween (tomorrow) we get the BFG Rematch… or so they say.

But anything that gives us Roode and Angle one more time, is certainly a good thing!

The Bromans, who now have New Music rather than Robbie E’s old “Bro Off” Dance Music, they had their very own Championship – Cele’Bro’tion.

Which pretty much just means they ran around drinking Champagne and popping Streamers. The potential within the Bromans is there, almost like a Modern Day and not as Good E&C. But the Streamers go a long way to making something work. In fact they should just have loads of them and run to the ring Popping them.

James Storm and Gunner got involved, as always, of course we all know that Storm will just get in everyone’s business.

James Storm TNA business 2

Storm and Gunner announced that they will be cashing in on their Rematch Clause for next week on Impact. Bad Influence also got involved, along with EY and Park, which ended with Daniels smashing the Champagne bottle on Park’s Head, busting him open and.. well you know the rest.

Bully Ray vs. AJ Styles – TNA: World Heavyweight Championship – Rematch

Earlier on in the night Bully told Knux and Garrett to go down to the Prison and make sure Anderson doesn’t post bail. I was hoping from some “on location” videos from TNA this week, but alas, that was not the case. Though not all hope was lost!

AJ once again used Evil Ways entirely, and Bully entered to the Lyrical version of The Aces and Eights theme. This match unlike their BFG Bout was much more Fast Paced, but that goes without saying really. They are obviously working to a Time Slot. I can’t tell if AJ meant to land on his Face or not during the match, but Bully pushed him in the Air for what looked like a Standard Back-Body Drop, but AJ just crash landed on his Face instead. I imagine he meant to do it, but it looked horrible. I mean horrible in the sense of it was cringe worthy, not that it looked like an error.

The match of course wasn’t on the same level as their BFG Title bout, but that’s what you would expect. Though don’t sell it short, it’s most definitely worth your time checking out. The ending came with Earl Hebner (ref) being knocked down, AJ applied the Calf Killer to which Bully Tapped. Eventually Bully made it to his feet and hit AJ with his Steel Chain, and then his Bully Cutter, the ref came round for a mere two count on AJ.

Bully picked up his Chain once more when Anderson turned up, with Bully distracted, AJ applied a Crucifix and rolled Bully up for a Pinning Victory.

Anderson then with Handcuffs still dangling from one wrist, ran into the Ring to beat down Bully Ray once more.

So one would expect that Knux and Garrett did the opposite, and got Anderson out of Jail for him to make it back to the Arena in time. Which I am sure is what will happen, so the Chances of Anderson taking over The Aces and Eights is extremely high, and this, I could not be happier about!

To close the show Dixie made her way to the ring to confront the still World Champion with a new TNA Contract.

The contract apparently not only has more money, but other perks including the Convertible from the beginning of the show, as well as things in place to keep AJ settled to TNA and Dixie’s bidding one would assume. AJ claimed “A fantastic Contract from a Horrible Person” and he is fed up of Dixie making money from the TNA Original’s blood sweat and tears.

AJ then rubbed the Contract on his Rear End, and said Dixie doesn’t respect him,. the TNA World Title or TNA. And he will take the Championship to the People. But he will take the Car.

TNA Ended with AJ getting in the Convertible and Holding up the TNA: World Championship as he drove out of the Arena.

Sorry if it seems a little Rushed this week, don’t let that be a representation of the this week’s Impact.

For my money this show was one of the best they have ever done, I love the current direction of AJ and Dixie. Having Anderson back in full force puts him on a level he hasn’t been at before. The potential between Anderson and Bully and not to mention Anderson and Dixie is huge. They have everything in place now, and it is building. The show was fantastic, how some people could complain about it baffles me. It was everything I could have hoped for and more, and I only hope now that they take this ground work and run with it.

I can’t wait to see what TNA has in store down the road!

Till Then!

The Infamous Informer

Monday Night Raw #1066: October 28, 2013!!!

I should continue my beef against the IWC about Hell In A Cell PPV, but this time I turn my attention to the everyday folk of Facebook: Why the f**k are you changing your profile pics into a muthaf***!n giraffe? If you get a riddle wrong you are suddenly a giraffe? If I get a riddle wrong I ain’t changing sh!t! I’m STILL the hip hop reppin, fried chicken eating, supermalt drinking, Tekken @$$ whoopin, diva loving, Infamous Informer! The other thing – All this Bit Strips stupid crap… everyone on that sh!t… the only way you see me up on that sh!t is if my sexy lady started the app… anyone else apart from her invites me to that crap – watch how quick I BLOCK THAT SH!T!!!



Ok we kicking the show off with the new World Heavyweight Champion – John Cena! All Cena haters line up and go to the toilet!!! Form an orderly cue and try to hold the p!$$ or doodoo in!

And the crowd are letting him know that whether he’s back or not is irrelevant, Daniel Bryan is the man running tingz!

Somebody let Cena know that he’s not the man any more, and you know what? I’m glad this is the last week we gonna see the WWE superstars wearing pink n sh!t… I respect the cancer fighters but this pink sh!t is unbearable especially when Cena is rocking the colours!

Oh snap!!!! Damien Sandow is assaulting Cena crazy! Targeting the elbow! Hold up – he’s not gonna cash his cheque is he??? OH SNAP!!!!!! HE IS!!! Sandow using the benefit of intellect here!!!!

World Heavyweight Championship jump off! We are really gonna see if Cena got that S on his chest!!! Can you imagine if Sandow wins here??? This gon’ change everything!!! Then STC’s Negrodamus could be on the money!

Shout out to STC’s Anthony Cardenas! If Sandow wins the title, can you imagine the revenue on bath robes worldwide?!!!! But Sandow I must stress: That it was Ghostface Killah who invented the bath robe!

1381439539_Ghostface Bathrobe

So I hear that Sandow’s new super move is called ‘You’re Welcome’…. I’m not sure if Cena is ready for that!!!! This match is great! YOU’RE WELCOME – BLAOW! OH SNAP – Cena kicks out at 2!!!! Cue Superman theme! F**K that – this is RePPiN 4U – Represent The Real Hip Hop!

Cena is really that n!**@!!!! Defeated Sandow!!! Don’t feel bad! Maybe the unification rumours could come to light!!!! Cena has done it again, but has STC’s Negrodamus done it too??? He was the one who predicted all this!

From one championship match to another! Dean Ambrose forced to defend his title again to Big E Langston! Well that’s what you get for running gone Ambrose because you couldn’t manage him! HOLD DAT – BLAOW!

Oh well so much for that – the Shield ain’t letting that sh!t happen – The Usos coming through means a 6 man tag jump off… maybe Big E should ‘GET IN THE CHAIR!!!’ Let’s be real – his haircut game is f***ed up!!! I’ve said that for months!

While this 6-man tag is running the Money Inna De Bank Anthology DVD is out very soon if it isn’t out already… that is a cool addition!!!! 8 years of crazy sh!t on a 3 disc set? Yes please!

The Shield are still that unit!!! Messed up the Usos and Big E!!! But is Ambrose getting drunk with US Title power? We noticing minor things with Roman Reigns… let’s be real – he does win the majority of the matches for the Hounds Of Justice!

Uh Oh somebody got some explaining to do!!!! Well the Grant Says HBShizzle hasn’t gotta explain much to me, Daniel Bryan kicked down Triple, HBK kicked down Daniel Bryan for kicking down his bredrin. Plus you know HBK, he loves the spotlight… he’s always controversial… why do you IWC jabronies look p!$$£d off???

Well HBK explained himself, I understand the ‘Don’t Trust Anybody’ code, hell we all lived by it during 97 – 2001, but he said – Don’t trust Brie Bella???? WHOA!!! Over the line there HBShizzle! get trapped up in the Yes lock by Daniel Bryan! You know what? HBK stated that he has always been there for Triple Teef, where was Triple when HBK got caught up in the Yes lock????? I’m saying hmmmm!!!

OH SNAP!!! Why did the Wyatt Family f**k up Danielson like that???? Is this anything to do with my hero Kane???? Just throwing it out there…. Yo the WWE creative are just throwing sh!t around right now! Hold up let me sit back and do the knowledge and I’ll get back to you…

Shout out to Jerry Lawler – I done the science with that HBK situation before you did!!! I ain’t talking about the next match f**k that – I think a commercial break is in order… Los Matadores Vs 3MB – F**K THAT!



YES! RePPiN4U will be at the Hammersmith Apollo live this Saturday to see Redman, Method Man & Busta Rhymes!!!!

Talking of Busta Rhymes I love my B!tch…. here comes my baby Tamina!!! AJ Lee!!! Oh no they gonna fight the muthaf***!n Bella Twins again??? Might as well go into another commercial break, and that’s bad coming from me because I love the ladies……………………………………………………… …………………………………………………………….

…………………………………………………sorry I was just thinking of tasting Tamina’s sugar….

My hero Kane is back! And he gotta fight Miz after he chokeslammed his clart at the Hell In A Cell PPV! I’m good with that – KANE – KILLLLLLLL HIM!!!!

Hold up…. Kane calling out Stephanie McMahon of all people???? Er… why????

WTF?????? My hero says the monster is hers to unleash???? Takes off his mask and gives it Steph and she’s wielding it like her name is Myunhi Hausen from Urotsukidoji?????

Faust Urotsukidoji 2

Switching gears now from my hero to STC’s hero – CM Punk!!!! This feud with him and Heyman should have ended at the PPV, so why the f**k is he fighting Dryback Mountain in a match voted by the brainwashed WWE Universe???

So basically we get the same match we had at the PPV only without the Hell In A Cell… it’s a street fight! CM PUNK! RYBACK! HOLD DAT – BLAOW!!!

…and after a Randy Savage elbow through the table and an anaconda vice, Ryback lose again!!!! OH DEAR…. WAIT A MINUTE – The Wyatts again???? This time they f**ked up CM Punk!!!! And just like what happened with Danielson, Bray Wyatt utters the words – ‘The devil made me do it’…. who is the devil exactly???? My hero Kane? Triple TEEF? nah its this fool surely…

Next match! The muthaf***k!n racist b!tches Vs The Rhodes Family!!!! YES!!! Goldust and Cody! f**k up these ignoramuses!!!

OH SH!T…. Goldust tapped out to Wack Swagger’s Patriot lock…. F********K! You know what that means…. they in line for a tag title shot… ain’t that a b!tch….

It seems that Bertie is not done with Cena… who wants to f**k up his arm!!! I smell an I Quit match… maybe at the Survivor Series????

How dare STC member Ash Blick say that 2 Divas matches are bad for business!!! Hasn’t he got homework to do or something??? Shout out to fellow Cage Amateurs UK TNA specialist – the Jobber Blogger, his company do Knockout only PPVs!!!! Now THAT is GOOD FOR BUSINESS!!! And the joke is – Ash Blick is a TNA fan! He doesn’t know a woman’s worth!!! I feel bad for him!

What is disrespectful is Natalya coming out to The Great Khali’s music…. what sort of sh!t is that?!!!

Big ups to Powerbomb Pro wrestling News… they caught a twitter amusement:

So @BrayWyattWWE destroys Kane, then goes after Bryan and Punk … Hmmm, is @WWEAJLee dating Wyatt now? #RAW #PastBFs

THE GRANT SAYS: Mind CM Punk doesn’t block you WWE Universe! You know how he feels about AJ Lee!!!

That wasn’t a bad wrestling contest between Summer Rae & Natalya! But Natalya – mind you don’t hurt Summer Rae’s sexy legs with that sharpshooter too much – she has to keep the d!cks hard with her Strictly Come Dancing skills!

OH NO!! It’s the Randall Orton WWE Championship ceremony! I’d so love to know how this is gonna end! Danielson taken out, CM Punk taken out, the Big Show banned from the building…. so surely this should go without a hitch… YES????

Hold up – WELLLLLL…. IT’S THE BIG SHOW!!! How the rarse did he get in the building? He’s not supposed to be in here! Ain’t he got a restraining order???? And plus, if he’s fired, why does his music continue to be played? How come the production crew aren’t fired??? The Usos and the Rhodes beating down the Shield!!!! It’s all out ruckus on the stage now! Carving a path for the Big Show!!! Triple TEEF leaves the ring – he don’t wanna be knocked the f**k out for another 3:31 minutes!

OH SNAP!!! The Big Show isn’t afraid of being arrested! He hints at ‘friends’ who can bail him out!!! Yes it’s giving me that little hope that it could be HIM pulling strings for the Big Show!!! (who’s HIM?? Well have you been paying attention jabroni???)

Big Show makes Triple TEEF well aware that if the lawsuit goes through Triple and Steph could be more broke than me!!!! Randall tries to teef by clappin Show upside the head with the championship belt… Triple TEEF directing Randall to Strike First as his shirt suggests but then suddenly – PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!! Randall just got punched through school buses! Oh no the ladies ain’t gonna like that! They love Randall’s handsome face!

Wait a minute! Triple TEEF backing off jacket now??? I’m surprised he hasn’t used the hammer by now!

The GRANT SAYS THIS: There are two things I am looking forward to, actually that is a lie – THREE things: One, Triple’s next interview with Michael Cole…. Two, WWE2K14 – Big up to our peoples in the states killing that game! Getting their character creation on, WrestleMania Mode, Undertaker Streak mode and all that!

The Jobber Blogger #73 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – BOUND FOR GLORY – 20/10/13


Jobber Blogger logo2

I’ve finally come to the realisation that I just wouldn’t be able to keep a Full-Time job. Actually, like most, and the majority and especially every issue of The Jobber Blogger I start off with a Sentence and then utterly correct that sentence the sentence after. I have not just come to any realisation, nor do I think a Full-Time job is actually above my level of “doing things”. I like to keep myself productive, it’s like they say “Productivity is the heart of my arse”… pretty sure I just made that up and it makes little sense, but if that isn’t a T-Shirt Slogan, I don’t know what is. But I feel obliged to Stand By my slogans, tag-lines and grammatically incorrect phrasing. Does that make sense to you, you say? Well, I know how you mean. Take that, it’s on the Internet! You know who I’m talking about! And like Wikipedia proudly exemplifies “Everything you read on the Internet is true!”.

So TNA threw out their Annual “Bound for Glory” Pay Per View Event, and not in an “overall” opinion manor, but there were highlights, of course, and then certain things didn’t live up to the Hype. Now me saying not living up to the Hype is me saying it was bad in parts, because it really wasn’t, it’s just on average, my expectations were higher than what was delivered. This paragraph, especially the last Sentence is a trademark of my “Spiffing” Good Grammar…. another T-shirt idea.





First things first, this year’s Bound for Glory Banner (without going back and checking every other BFG Banner) remarkably resembles Ye’ Olde NWA / TNA font, a subtle hint / subliminary reference me thinks?

TNA BFG logo

As always, the show kicked off with a rather nifty opening Video Package detailing the journey of one AJ Styles leading to his Main Event Match with Bully Ray. For my money, TNA really has great Story telling, to think this all happened well over a year ago, with Claire Lynch, through to Christopher Daniels beating him, losing last year at BFG to not Wrestle for the title for an entire year. Leaving, the mysterious new look, new attitude, it’s a Rebirth of TNA and they put their “Poster Boy”, the Face of TNA front and centre and they broke him down, sent him down, brought him back better than ever. The old saying goes “Don’t put all your eggs in the one basket” but AJ Styles is what made TNA, and if anyone can shift them into a New Era, a new Direction, it’s AJ Styles they need on the front lines. And Bound for Glory is all about AJ Styles.

This for the record is a great thing. AJ has been on fire of late, since his Return he has been something new and extremely interesting / entertaining to watch, partner that with this ominous “New Direction” and TNA has become a very interesting place.

Jeff Hardy vs. Austin Aries vs. Chris Sabin vs. Samoa Joe vs. Manik – X-Division Championship – Ultimate-X Match


The whole “not living up to my expectations” is pretty much entirely centred around this match. I will first lay out why I was excited for it, 1- it’s the X-Division, “THE” Division that built TNA, and with a new direction, surely this match goes a long way to revamp the Division. 2- Chris Sabin has been an X-Division Wrestler since day one in TNA, Samoa Joe has been one of the corner stone’s of the X-Division, let alone TNA. 3- Austin Aries is in this match. 4- It’s Bound for Glory.

Now on the flip side, I can name one thing that I honestly feel let this match down, and not in a totally negative way that I wish it wasn’t there, just wish they did it differently. And that one thing is: Jeff Hardy.

Yes, Hardy launched his Career with Wrestling a totally different style, yes you can argue he helped to develop this “X-Division” Style of Wrestling long before TNA even existed. But the X-Division matches generally are fast paced, full throttle and of course that has it’s fair shares of errors and mistakes, but they naturally are expected, and part of the adrenaline, not to mention part of their talent in how quickly the performers correct them. There was however one point toward the start of the Match where Jeff just looked like a headless chicken, really at a loss of what to do, and tried to get involved but that made him stand out all the more. He was the proverbial “Sore Thumb”. To make matters worse, as I feared from Impact, but he introduced Ladders to Ultimate-X.

Sure, I get the appeal, I’m a lifelong Hardy fan, I love Ladder Matches, but bringing a Ladder to Ultimate-X is like wearing Wrestling Platform Boots.

Ultimate Boots Image

The whole idea and concept of this match is to struggle and climb your way to the Ropes above the ring, and shimmy across to the centre where you try and get the Belt down. The Belt isn’t That high off the Canvas in the first place. Bringing a Ladder into the match ruins the entire concept. You can reach the belt with a Foot Stool, the whole point of the Match is the concept of the match. If you could just go “you know what, screw dangling upside down trying to get the belt down, I’ll just wear stilts to the ring” then these matches would have sucked years ago.

I like the idea of putting Jeff Hardy in the X-Division, and yes an X-Division Ladder Match would be great. But this is Ultimate-X, part of the excitement is to see Jeff Hardy bring his Style to a new Match-Type. He claimed “I Want to do something I’ve never done before” which either implies he wants to be a part of an Ultimate X match… which he failed at. Or what he really meant was “I want to Ruin everything”… which he succeeded at.

On the positive side, Jeff had new music again as he always does at Bound for Glory, which is exciting, I always like new Music, specially from Jeff. Further more Joe and Aries got a great reaction from the Crowd… Jeff…. not so much.

There was some great high points in the match, Manik once again stood out the most for being so fluid in the ring, and he actually corrected a lot of the minor “errors” through-out the match that actually really played in his favour as a performer.

The ending was a bit naff, Jeff dropped Sabin with the Twist of Fate, Sabin instantly rolled out the ring then had a shouting match with Velvet Sky about her getting in the ring to Stop Jeff from winning. Should it bug me when someone connects with their finisher which normally would lay them out for a while, or result in a victory, but on the other occasion, it just takes them out of the way but they’re really not that hurt from it. Sabin could clearly get right back up and in the ring. Anyway, Velvet was pushed in the ring by Sabin, Jeff was distracted and moved her out of the way, and Sabin ran up the Ladder behind him and got the Belt.


Bad Influence made their way to the ring to have a good rant about how they should be on the Card at Bound for Glory. And in the truest words ever spoken from one Frankie Kazarian “Not since the Premier of Broke Back Mountain have two men been screwed more than Bad Influence”.

Of course this whole Segment served a Purpose, but anyone who is a fan of TNA will actually agree with their words when they spoke about this being about TNA, and they “Are” TNA. Still, they then went on to complain about not Winning the Bound for Glory – Pre-Show Tag-Team Number #1 Contender Match, but they should be put in the Tag Championship Match anyway.

Eric Young then confronted the duo claiming they Created a Monster. Now I didn’t see the Pre-Match, I’ve since tried to find it, but I will continue looking, because it does sound interesting. Either way, Bad Influence then beat down EY and Abyss Returned, with his old and awesome Music. Abyss took out both Daniels and Kaz then picked up EY showing an alliance. I really hope Abyss sticks around this time, he has had what, 3 appearances since Slammiversary? He won the TV Title, then was never seen again. I just hope they finally Wrap Up the Joseph Park / Abyss Storyline or at least get it going again in an Interesting way.

The Bromans (w/Mr. Olympia) vs. James Storm and Gunner – World Tag-Team Championships


Now, despite what I wrote in the title of this match, at first I thought Robbie and Jesse were just being occupied to the ring by a Walking Cloud. I would say “discoloured” or “pollution” but no doubt that would be flagged as Racist. But really… when did this ever become a Good Look?

mr olympia image

Gunner was wearing a new Ring-Jacket, which actually is pretty cool, though it’s just something to Wear to the Ring, it goes a long way to creating a “Look, Style, Gimmick” that really suits him. I still think some crazy Face-Paint wouldn’t go a miss either. The Tag-Team name of “The Sinner and The Saint” was thrown around. But let’s face it, Americas Most Wanted, great team, Beer Money best team (in terms of home grown TNA), but yet another James Storm team, again. Enough is enough.

Unless Storm just wants to be a Tag-Team guy all the time, with multiple different teams, he’s like the Band you loved but keep coming back with new members till you just don’t care anymore.

If anything AMW put Storm on the Map, Beer Money put Roode in the Main Events and this new ensemble is just making Gunner look good and Storm look increasingly irrelevant.

Gunner Jacket Image

Here is a good bit of Blog Journalism that not everyone might have got, the Image on the back of Gunner’s Trunks is the Eddie Logo from Iron Maiden’s 2006 Album – “A Matter of Life and Death”. Clearly Gunner is obviously more of a “Rock” guy anyway, but “AMOLAD” is an Album Written about War, and Gunner being a Former Army Man himself, obviously the connection fits perfectly. Part of me thought I could hear an “Iron Maiden” chant breaking out.. but then I probably just made it up myself like when you see faces in your carpet… watching you… whilst you sleep. If you sleep face down on your carpet anyway. A good tip is, get a bed.

Gunner Maiden

Speaking of Gunner being impressive, he performed a great Fall Away Slam from the Top Rope. James Storm fell of the Ring-Apron and had a Nasty Cut on his Leg (not that this was his contribution to the match).

My favourite thing about this match, even though The Bromans are easily the “Clowns” of TNA, both Jesse and especially Robbie E are great in the ring. And they showed it in spades, and the crowd ate it up, which was an awesome reaction to get for them both.

The ending was fine, albeit somewhat confusing. Robbie E threw one of the Tag-Team Belts into the Ring, this distracted the Ref, then The Bromans performed a Double Move and Won the Match. But the whole Throwing of the Belt was really unnecessary. Mike Tenay was yelling on commentary about “illegal double team!” but both teams were performing Double Moves with the whole “Breakdown” of the Tag-Match lark going on, so really they did Nothing illegal.

I am glad that they picked up the Win, since Gunner and Storm won the Belts the Division has been bland, and we’ve barely seen them since. So hopefully New Champions might shed some new light on the Division going forward.

The Hall of Fame – Induction


Let’s not beat the drum anymore on just how pointless the TNA HOF really is. For a company that’s 11 years old and all of its home grown talent hitting the Prime of their Career, it’s going to be many, many, many years before any of them should be in a Hall of Fame. Which means the guys TNA puts into the Hall of Fame are those who are older “legends” from other companies… which defeats the point. It reeks of “We’ve inducted Sting before you WWE, and we’ve inducted Kurt Angle before you too!.. So Nerr!”

Regardless, just like last year’s HOF Induction Ceremony, it looks… awful. TNA have some of the best Cameras on the Market, they released a whole Video about how good their Cameras were because of the great Resolution and Frame Rate they capture at. You watch any of their “Super Star” video reels, they look awesome. Their video packages are such a high standard. So why the high holy hell, for the last 2 years running does their “Hall Of Fame” ceremony look like it’s been filmed from a proud Father sat in the Audience using their Trusty Old Cam-Corder. It’s terrible. They get people’s heads in the shot, it’s resolution is crap, there is only the one camera the entire night so it pans back and forth badly. The sound is naff quality. And the room looks like a School Play with some badly lit curtains a projector screen and a basic Microphone.

Nothing says “Hall of Fame” like an Amateur production.

Furthermore, everyone knows this is Wrestling, it’s a Storyline based show, so the President of TNA: Dixie Carter was not at the Ceremony because it suits her “Current Heel Turn”. Who cares? It makes more sense she is there. For Christ’s sake, Jeff Jarrett who hasn’t been seen on TNA since Kurt Angle himself beat him at Lockdown a few years back in one of TNA’s most personal feuds for Jarrett to leave the company was sat next to Kurt Angle. Not only that, but Kurt’s ex-Wife who is Jarrett’s current Wife was on the table too, and they are all clapping and having a great time. Surely that’s more confusing to the average “fan” than having the Boss in the Audience?

Anyway, so to Induct Kurt into the Hall of Fame, Sting was sent out, seemingly without a Script for it was the most half arsed speech I’ve ever heard. I sort of like the idea of the previous Inductee to Induct the new inductee. But Sting had a great lot to say about Kurt’s in ring skills and relevance to the industry, then he went on to say “he’s also a family man… he’s got kids, in the audience.. a nice wife… errr” it’s like, what is that? So Kurt came out to do an even more half arsed “thanks” for saying “you have no idea how much this means to me”…. “I can’t put do it justice with words”. Well that sounds like the most polite “this is sh*t” to me. Sting then gives Angle a Watch, and also Angle knows how to open a box, unlike Hogan who tore the back off the thing, then the front.. then just opened it.

Angle then “respectively” declined the offer to the Hall of Fame, which I couldn’t tell if it was a Work or not, but did genuinely seem upset, it could be legit. Because everything was going well till he got arrested yet again for DUI then went to Rehab and came back just in time for his Induction. That doesn’t sound like a very good legacy to leave behind. So I get it. I just don’t get it also.

Gail Kim vs. Brooke vs. ODB – Knockouts Championship


There is a huge “Why?” about this Match. As I mentioned last week, since when did Gail Kim earn the chance to be in this match? As she was defeated by ODB for ODB to Wrestle for the Knockouts Championship in the first place. Since then Gail hasn’t been near the title picture, nor was she involved in the Brooke / Velvet number one contenders matches. She did feel somewhat out of place, for at least ODB and Brooke are both relevant for this Match and for Television / Storylines currently. Not to reiterate, but Gail didn’t do anything to earn her way into this match.

Brooke was impressive, though her lack of a second name still seems strange to me. ODB did a really good job of carrying the match forward for both Brooke and even Gail. To be fair though, the most notes I wrote about this match was just quotes from Taz on Commentary. Getting Fan Access (WWE) mixed up with Fan Interaction (TNA) and the rather hilarious by play between him and Tenay. Plus Taz’s continued rant about Referee “Stiffler” was just classic.

Either way, the Ref was taken down, and then Lei’D Tapa made an appearance, like I’m sure most people expected. ODB had a drink from her flask but was beaten down on the Entrance Ramp, Tapa then made her way to the Ring where Brooke jumped from the Top-Rope on her, only to be caught and Power-Bombed back into the Ring. This is where Gail pinned Brooke and Won the match.

Lei’D Tapa then got the Knockouts Championship, and what I was hoping, was she would hand the belt to Gail in a, “I’m next in line” type of Manor. But instead she handed it to Gail and Gail jumped on her and hugged her. So this is my problem with that. One, I still don’t think Gail deserved to be in this match. Of course she is deserving of it, but if you’re going to put in the match, actually make that known rather than just having your commentators announce the week before “also Gail is in it”. More than that though, Lei’D Tapa was interesting because she was different, she’s this big, powerful Knockout, that I really want to see more of. She’s like a Good Awesome Kong. The problem now is that she’s just Gail’s lackey. She is no longer threatening, she’s just a “bodyguard”. She instantly looks weak because Gail is jumping all over her and celebrating. She isn’t intimidating, or dangerous, or anything like that. She now just comes across Wimpy and Pathetic, like a Female Bane.

Bobby Roode vs. Kurt Angle


Simply Put – Match of the Night.

With Angle turning down the Hall of Fame it pretty much just made everything about why these guys are fighting,… true… or wrong, depending on how you look at it. Angle was annoyed because of the “mockery!” and how Roode claimed he was undeserving. Angle retaliates with Violence. Then he gladly sits at a Ceremony, eats catered food, listens to loads of guys spill their guts on what he means to them and the industry. Then walks out and says “meh”, what a jerk. And he has the audacity to get annoyed with Roode for being completely and entirely Right about Angle from the get go.

Reasons and Logic be damned, I like the fact that this match wasn’t a big “built up” Story feud. It felt like a good old fashioned Wrestling Match, perfectly Placed on the grandest Stage TNA offer.

The match was fantastic, and I love it when I get so into a Match that I just really want someone to Win, even though I know it doesn’t work like that, but still. I cringed when Angle applied the Ankle Lock on the other Ankle to which he normally does, it bent horribly… the wrong way. The counters back and forth were fantastic, not to mention Angle countering the Cross-face, rolling through and turning it into an Angle-Slam.

One of the best moves was from Roode when he dropped Angle with a Death Valley Driver turned into a Neck-Breaker ish Cutter move. Roode uses a number of “Signature Moves” like the Spear, Cross-face, Spine-Buster and Northern Lights Suplex, but he’s never had that one “FINISHER”. So I really hope he develops this, as that.

I even got high hopes when Angle applied the leg-vine to his Ankle Lock and it looked as if Roode was going to “Pass-Out”, Brian Hebner (ref) picked up Roode’s arm for what I imagine would be the “drop 3 times it’s over rule” but Roode looked up on the first time he lifted his arm, and it looked as if Brian put Roode’s hand on the Rope. This was met with a huge “Boo” from the Crowd. But at that moment I thought, what if Brian Hebner is going to Screw Kurt Angle because Angle turned down the HOF Induction. I thought that would be awesome. Evidently not, it all became rather confusing though, but then just was forgotten.

The finish was just as impressive with a Top Rope Angle Slam which led to a 9-Count, Roode made to his feet, Angle didn’t move, Roode then fell on Angle and got the 3 Count. Angle still didn’t move.

I can’t tell you how glad I am that Roode won. To be fair I want Roode to win everything, he’s fantastic, but with everything else surrounding this match, I wanted him to beat Angle all the more. I would be happy for Angle to be Heel to be honest, it almost felt “right”.

The stupid thing was the EMT’s run down and bring out a Stretcher, and yet again, for the second time in Recent Memory, I Hope and Pray, that these people are just Actors or wanna be Wrestlers, not actual trained Health and Safety EMT’s.  Because they badly placed Angle on the Board, and didn’t fasten it, and then tried to Push it to the Ring Apron where it looked amazingly Awkward, and Angle nearly fell off the board multiple times. Comedy aside, this looks worse than the amateur HOF Ceremony.

Anywho, Angle then did the “I’m too proud” and got up and walked off. I only wish he actually sold the fact he was injured in the first place, because he seemed just fine.



Ethan Carter the Third vs. Norv Ferman


I think that was this guy’s name, local Wrestling talent, picked for his “look”.

A good debut by EC3, the idea he is Dixie’s nephew is a little odd, see how that develops. But I really like his gimmick, his music and his charisma thus far.

A basic Squash match, but no bad thing either. I wrote down “Good Finish”… I don’t remember his move.. .but apparently it was good….. Carter won.



Magnus vs. Sting


For those of you who read my Blogs, I mentioned I hope this match actually is a “Classic” that will put Magnus on the Map, like the Flair vs. Sting match of old. Well, it wasn’t.

It was a weird mash up of confusion. And I love Sting, but let’s be honest, he’s never been “that” good in the ring. And these days he just seems to do the same thing… multiple times…. a lot. It’s just back hands, Splashes, and Suplex’s, with his finishers and the occasional Drop kick. Sting is very good at getting you on his side though, a la vs. Bully Ray in Sting’s last ever World Championship Match. I still think Sting needs to fight Aries, and it needs to be “big” because Aries will get Sting to perform at the best of his ability, because Aries wouldn’t let him do any less. Their brief bout before was awesome, so it is something I highly anticipate.

Anywho, Magnus had new attire, I like new music and new attire for Big PPV’s it’s good. His new attire is good too. But this weird mash up comes off of them being “friends / allies” yet Magnus who isn’t really moving that quickly to being a “heel” is taking “opportunities” like underhanded things and un-sportsman like things. Sure the whole, do what it takes to win thing makes sense, but it just seemed a bit strange so suddenly. What was more Sudden was Magnus flat-out mocking Sting, that seemed bizarre.

And then that bizarre got more bizarre with Sting doing Ric Flair’s infamous “fall on the face” which made no sense.

Is Sting trying to be Flair, and Magnus trying to be Sting? Is that their only claim to fame, Magnus’ best chance of being great is to try his best at replicating something that happened 20 years ago. And was Sting trying to emulate Flair? What was going on?…

It was fine, but average, which was what I feared, it certainly isn’t going to be something you look back at and think, yep, that put him on the Map. Because it didn’t. Magnus vs. Aries… that might.

Magnus made Sting tap with his Kingsland Cloverleaf, again, the Tap came suddenly.

Magnus then went super pompous and celebrated at every Corner, leaving Sting to follow him around trying to Shake his hand, Magnus then shook his hand in a very belittling manor and left.



Bully Ray vs. AJ Styles – World Heavyweight Championship – No Count-out, No DQ


The No Count-Out, No DQ was a stipulation added after Impact. I don’t have a problem with it, but it could have been emphasised better than Dixie putting it on Twitter.

It also means “Something is going to happen”.

Earlier on in the night we Saw Bully Ray talking to what looked like open Shower Cubicles… which is… weird on many different levels. But he went on about The Aces and Eights fooling everyone once more “They thought you just Split, they thought you were Dead, and they thought you would never Trust me Again”. Which in turn sounds like he means DOC, Anderson and Devon in that order. It was interesting to say the least.

Bully had a Promo before the match where he quoted Axl Rose… this hot on the heels of him claiming to be Darth Vadar makes for a very mixed signal.

Darth Bully Rose Image

Since AJ came back at Slammiversary to fight Kurt Angle and he walked out to “Evil Ways”, I knew that he and Bully would clash at Bound for Glory. They had that look, that theme, and just from the music and the setting / atmosphere both created around it, it was a Collision Course.

So I was so happy to have AJ walk out purely to Evil Ways and not his Phenomenal Theme, it was the perfect setting for the Match. To make it even better Bully walked out to the Lyrical version of The Aces and Eights theme.

Little subtle details like this, but it’s those little details that really set the Stage for the Match.

Obviously Bound for Glory over the years has been the PPV where something big went down to determine the Storylines going forward. The formation of Immortal, The Aces and Eights invading just to name the most current, and obviously this year is will AJ Styles take the title / power and change TNA for the better. But a No DQ basically means all bets are off, Aces and Eights could turn, Dixie Carter could align with The Aces and Eights, Hogan could come back, anything big. But nothing like that happened, which isn’t a bad thing by any means.

But it also means that Bully and AJ are capable of having a fantastic 5Star match, they’ve already had one before in their Last Man Standing match last year. But the run-ins made for a stop start type of pacing. But the idea was AJ Styles was battling to Win, because he had to Win at any cost.

Bisch ran in first, gave Bully a Hammer, this led to nothing in the end. AJ standing up to Bully and taking his powerful Chops to the Chest was a great scene, as each Chop left fresh hand prints on his chest, yet he wouldn’t back down. Knux then came down, Chokeslammed AJ, Bully pinned him, only got a Two Count.

AJ did a Spring-Board 450 Splash from the Ring through the Announce Table… pretty much landing Face First on the floor, which looked horrible, but then a great Big Spot for the Match. Taz gave Bully a knife, again, he cut the Canvas to expose the Wooden boards of the Ring beneath. Bully then called out “The Boys” who I guess is whomever he was talking to in the Shower earlier on, but no one came down to Help him.

Dixie then made her way to the ring and handed Bully a Chair, AJ spring boarded back in the Ring hitting the Chair at Bully. He then hit another Springboard 450, but Dixie threatened Heber if he counted the Three, causing Bully to finally kick out with Hebner’s slow reluctant count.

In the end of course, AJ hit Bully in the head with the Chair, landed Spiral Tap from the Corner and Won the Match.

He celebrated and then left through the Crowd with Dixie looking on as AJ secured the TNA World Championship.


Clearly the odds where in AJ’s favour to Win the belt, but you never know. I can’t say how happy I am to just have AJ back as World Champion, it’s been far too long. Though I do love the journey he has gone on, and I seriously hope and can’t wait to see where this direction goes next. I think everyone is hoping for a “Revamp” to TNA, with AJ to lead the change.

Regardless, a great Main Event, and a great Bound for Glory.

Let’s hope this coming Year in TNA is fantastic and takes them to the Level they deserve to be at. Say what you want about them, but their Locker Room, their Story Lines and their product of Wrestling, is what I always loved about Professional Wrestling, and it just baffles me more people don’t like it, or don’t get it, or don’t watch it, or don’t know about it.


Till then.

The Jobber Blogger #72 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 17/10/13October 20, 2013

Jobber Blogger logo2

Well hasn’t this been an interesting week. Well okay so it’s sort of the start of the “interesting” week. But with it being Half Term, yes The Jobber Blogger himself is busy this week. And yeah, so what, I like to fill my days off with other activities and the such. Either way, it is a Sunday night, and I’m cracking open the ol Word Document to spill my deep seeded feelings and opinions on this past week’s TNA: Impact. Impact Wrestling Logo


Of course the other reason is right now, Bound for Glory will be starting in the States, and with me having very little time this week to get caught up with my Ramblings, it’s about time I get a move on with it, for Watching, and Writing up of Bound for Glory will be soon upon me.

Dixie, just like last week, kicked off Impact, but this week she was followed by Two Guards, one of them was named Atlus, or maybe Atlas, I don’t remember. That is my best attempt of a joke mentioning the name it read on the Neck of his Uniform. I assume the other guy was called the same, even if he did look like the type of dude who would be kept as far away from Children as possible. Saying that, the other guard has been seen around Impact for quite some time now, I would guess that his name is in fact not Atlus, and that it could be a name for the Arena they filmed in, either that or he works for that find Video Game Publisher who brings us great Games from Abroad with top notch localisation. But I would assume that isn’t the case. Of course to keep things relevant, Atlus has since been bought out by Sega, and the guy in the crowd was showing the world his displeasure with such a buy-out!

Booing ManWith the recent talk of the Carter Family selling off TNA, perhaps Sega would in fact invest in a Wrestling Promotion. And the chance of that happening is… it’s just not going to happen.

Booing Man 2So yeah, Atlus and Atlas carried out a Briefcase for Dixie, and Dixie “doing what is best for the Company” decided to get rid of that Pesky 3 Month long Bound for Glory Series idea, and just let anyone beat up AJ Styles and take him out of the Main Event, and in the process getting themselves a Shot at the World Championship against Bully Ray, and earning a lovely $50’000. Now this apparently is the Money that AJ turned down last week, and remember that Dixie told AJ that this money is the most amount of Money he has ever seen his entire life. Now I know Math isn’t my strong point, that’s why I decide to give off worthless opinions of a Wrestling show each week, but on average Minimum Wage, least here in the UK, you earn £6.31 per hour. Now working a Full-Time job at 40Hours a week will earn you a little over £1000 a Month. I rounded it up, but who cares. So you will be on £12’000 a year, or there about. Now remember that this is Minimum Wage, anything more skilful than shall we say, sweeping a floor or working the tills, tends to pay above that. So within 5 years of working Minimum Wage you will see that amount of Money. Which means Logically AJ Styles would be Wrestling for Minimum Wage for 11 Years with TNA, and not even got close to earning $50’000. Sure, he doesn’t Wrestling “full time” 40 hours a week, but hey, TNA must be really underpaying their Talent.

Regardless! That is all piddle trollop folks!

Piddle Trollops

Of course AJ would be earning big money, and $50’000 is “Chump Change” to a Main Event Wrestler, in TNA or not. Still, the Theme of the night was a $50’000 Bounty on the head of AJ Styles, and Bully Ray was the first to step up… least vocally. Soon to be followed by Magnus, who was darn tootin’ annoyed that Dixie was “besmirching” the Bound for Glory Series by being rid of its Winner so quickly. This of course coming from Magnus’ heard work through-out the Series, yet no-one complained that Anderson got a Main Event Title-Shot by not even getting close to Winning the Series. So you know, swings and roundabouts, wrestling and logic.

In the end Magnus took this motivation to Challenge Bully to a fight, with his Reasons being, and I quote “$50’000 might be Chump Change to you, Boss, might even be Chump Change to you, Champ. But it sure as hell isn’t Chump Change to me, or to the good folks of Tulsa Oklahoma” Well first off, that’s just outright insulting to anyone who lives there and does more their lives than running the Till’s at Wallmart. I digress, he goes on to say “Look at me when I’m talking to you (points to Dixie Carter) you can understand how serious I am, when I tell you, that I’m so sick and tired of hearing you talk each and every week, so you can take that $50’000, Bully Ray, I will fight you tonight for Free”.

How the hell does that make a lick of sense? But hey, it’s Pro-Wrestling, and actually I’m glad that for the first time Bully actually stepped up on Air to say that Magnus has all of this “Tools of the Trade, next Big Breakout Star” and then call him a disappointment. Obviously I think Magnus is rather good, but I don’t need everyone on the Show to be saying that to me, it makes me dislike him. Which is good for a Heel turn right? Still, Magnus, Whom only a few weeks ago said he doesn’t see it in himself, took offence at Bully agreeing with him, not seeing it in him either, and so they had a fight. Yay!

Same Guy 001

Christopher Daniels vs. Hernandez vs. Robbie E vs. Eric Young – 4 Corners Match – Winner Tag-Team Advantage at Bound for Glory

Okay, so I shall just spell out what this match was. Before Bound for Glory starts, there is an Hour Long TV Only part of the show where Bad Influence go up against EY and Park, Bro’Mans and Chavo and Hernandez. The winner of that what I assume must be a Gauntlet Style, or Elimination Style, or Something style match, will go on to face Storm and Gunner on Bound For Glory itself. So this match is to determine the “Man Advantage” meaning whom wins this match, their respective team will “Enter” the Match last, thus having the best advantage to be the Number #1 Contenders.

That’s a whole Paragraph of Nothing. They really need to emphasise more on the Tag-Team Championships, because whenever we see any team go on about them these days, deep down we know they’re lying, they didn’t want to be a Tag-Team. There is no “Glory” for the Tag Belts anymore it seems, and Tag-Team Wrestling is some of the best, so I really hope TNA’s “New Direction” includes a great Tag-Team Division Revision. Now that’s a Tongue Twister.

I think it’s on one hand a good thing to give the “BFG – Pre-Show” a Match with significance, but it also means the Tag-Team Match at Bound for Glory itself seems a little Thrown on the Card, because they sort of feel it has to be. In the end however it was EY with his Top-Rope elbow drop on Christopher Daniels, but Robbie E creeps up from behind and throws EY out of the ring and Stealing the Victory.

Same Guy 002+

Gunner vs. Knux

This all came about with AJ Styles heading to the Ring to speak his mind on this “Bounty”. I believe he was attacked before this by Jesse Godders. AJ called everyone out declaring “I’m not going to Run, I’m not going to Hide. Come and Get Paid”. I really like what they’ve done with AJ these last few Months, sure I didn’t think they needed to bring him back to help Main Event Mafia against Bully Ray. But in the Long Run AJ still Feels the same. I like that he appears to be a Lone Wolf still but getting beaten down every step of the way, but still fighting back. Thanks to AJ not stepping down, Knux and Bischoff from The Aces and Eights stepped up to take out AJ. Which is when James Storm and Gunner came down to help out AJ, leading to a very interesting Stare Off between AJ and Storm. This has me thinking that AJ is banding together the TNA Originals, so I fully expect Storm and Gunner to Drop the Tag Belts at BFG and Storm to be on AJ’s side going forward.

I don’t quite get why Gunner and Knux had a fight on the show, it would have made more sense if Knux and Bischoff could move forward with a Tag-Title Shot. But alas, they can’t, least not any time soon. Saying that, I am glad the two of them squared off, because it really shows the Potential in Gunner. If I can find it, then I shall attach a Clip of his Impressive Fall-Away Slam on Knux.

Same Guy 003

The main point was that Bully earlier on in the night got Knux and Bisch all fired up to take out AJ, and each of them having each other’s backs, and with Knux struggling, he calls out for Bully, who didn’t come to help him, and Gunner connected with a Spear picking up the Win.

As much as I think AJ is going to have a one-sided Battle against Bully at Bound for Glory, I think a turn from The Aces and Eights, maybe even a Return from Hogan and Anderson will be what finishes off Bully Ray’s Title Reign. I am still holding out hope that Bully is either “downgraded” and needs to prove himself in the Club, or he is outright kicked out. But still leaving The Aces and Eights as a Faction, Motor Bikes or not…. hopefully not.

In other news Brooke now fully cementing herself as a “Whore” is in the Back taking Photos of her “Rear”. Just like all Ladies do. Hooray!

Chris Sabin (w/Velvet Sky) vs. Samoa Joe

Before Sabin and Joe took to the Ring, Sabin was seen backstage wanting to try his luck at Cashing in on Dixie’s Bounty by taking out AJ Styles. Velvet reacted by claiming Sabin seems “different”… she’s only just noticed…. Well, if she didn’t know…


I’m so glad that Catch Phrase didn’t take off… along with her Catwoman esk 50’s Whore look.

Joe however found Sabin backstage and talked him out of trying anything with AJ… in as less of a gay way as you can possible make that sound. This also clarifies that alliance between AJ and Joe, also TNA originals, etc, Change etc.

Sabin and Joe being Two of the 5 involved in Bound for Glory’s Ultimate X Match for the X-Division Championship. Though Sabin had, had enough of Joe and made a run for it, using Velvet as a Shield (again) but then dropping Joe with a DDT on the Stage trying to get a count out. In the end it was Joe who reversed a Roll-Up into the Rear Naked Choke and took the win.

This led to Austin Aries running out and Attacking Joe for getting involved last week and adding himself into the Ultimate-X match, which then led to Jeff Hardy getting involved and then finally Manik.

There was however a big play on Ladders, obviously that is Jeff’s speciality, and one was involved in the closing moments of this segment. So there is a good chance that a Ladder will make its way into the Ultimate-X Match.

Magnus vs. Bully Ray

Both Magnus and Bully showed why they are the Present and Future of TNA Wrestling. No doubt about it, but Magnus is really good in the ring, and of course Bully is a great Talent to work with, no matter who it is. But this match acted as feeding more fuel to the fire between Magnus and Sting.

Magnus had the Champ on the ropes, really on a roll since his recent “losing streak”. But Hebner got knocked down (obviously) and Bully grabbed his Steel Chain to gain a Cheat Victory, Sting got involved, Hebner was distracted by Sting and the Steel Chain and Bully Low-Blowed Magnus and picked up a Win.

Thus this making more issues between Sting and Magnus, I actually really hold out Hope for this match. I want this Match to be “Something” to really mean “Something”. They are “Bigging” it up, with Flair putting Sting on the Map. And I hope they both deliver a Top Ratings Match, but I also have a lot of doubt of it being a Classic. I’m sure it will be good though.

Kurt Angle made his way out to the ring to tell everyone that it’s “Great to be Back” and that Bobby Roode reminds Kurt of himself 5 Years Ago. Though Roode’s “Hall of Fame” ceremony made it personal. I guess there is a big element of Mockery in E.G.O’s Hall of Fame that would annoy Kurt, but then that also makes Kurt really big headed and a glory hound to be annoyed at something so petty. Roode countered Angle’s statements by saying that he doesn’t want to be Angle, maybe some years ago he did, but that he views himself better. I’m sure Roode doesn’t stand a chance of Winning, but I’d really like him to. Though no mention of Kurt being gone because of Rehab, which would have been a nice “mature” touch. But meh, whatever.

Daniels and Kazarian got involved, and in the end it was Roode who made Angle tap out to his Cross-Face. Shades of Angle and Benoit all those years ago. But here’s a nice titbit for you, I always hated Chris Benoit, especially when everyone found out about the “incident” and I always found Benoit to be insanely Over-Rated. I never liked any of his matches, and he was the utter Sh*test World Champion I can remember. And I never swear.

Benoit wishes he was as good as Kurt Angle, and can only dream of being as good as Bobby Roode.

AJ Styles – Bully Ray – Contract Signing

Well, Dixie’s Plan to get AJ removed from the Main Event at Bound for Glory didn’t really Pan out very well. Though Bad Influence did give AJ a good beat down in the back, but he fought back and sprayed them a Fire Extinguisher before making a Run for it.

Contract Signings are still kind of Silly, least in Wrestling, but they are mildly entertaining also. Bully Signed first then gave AJ a history lesson of Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes, and how Bully is going to end AJ Styles and put him and his Family on “Hard Times”. Then he referred to himself as Darth Vadar, which lost him a lot of Respect. It’s like what’s the point of Gaining Points with the Wrestling references to then undo all of your good work by mentioning Pop Culture.

AJ Bully Star Wars

AJ did the usual “talk back” then signed, and of course then they both had a good old Fight. But more importantly AJ took the Brief Case off of Dixie Carter and threw her $50’000’s all over her.

A good show from top to bottom, and certainly feeding the fire leading into Bound for Glory.

I can’t wait to watch BFG and I will be back as soon as possible to give you my thoughts and opinions!

Till Then!
