The Jobber Blogger #134 – TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 12/11/14

The Jobber Blogger

Well it’s Saturday evening and I’ve got plans for Tomorrow, so we’re going to Jobber Blogger it up!

You know what I’ve been thinking, what am I going to do with my life? Sure I have a good full time job, but who knows what will happen in the future right? They might sell the company, they might need to reduce costs. My job could be rapidly reduced and I wouldn’t be in control of it. That makes you think that I should spread my wings and start looking for other opportunities. After all I’m not getting any young… currently, unless my Vanilla Tea has an awesome side effect. Least when I’m much older, I’d like to think maybe 87, 88 years old, then I can start back tracking and getting younger again.

Ah, what would life be like?

Anyway, that’s a slight tangent. This got me thinking to what it is “I” want to do with my life. The short answer, I guess would be Writing. My list of interests, passions and not to be big headed, but skills, go from Writing to Graphic Design, Film, Editing, Music, Drawing. It’s a fairly lengthy list. If I haven’t mentioned it before then I did actually try and make my own feature film, I went at it like no bodies business, but I got caught on certain setbacks and in the end it didn’t really amount to anything. Either way, Writing is at the core of it all. My quickest answer is Comic-books and Movies. That’s what I want to write, I love it. Now I do write in my spare time and I used to Write A LOT in my spare time, but spare time it much less …. spare.

Though my Blog IS my writing. I do this every week without fail, and I’m proud of it. But where has it got me? Sure it’s helped, sure it got me my current job, and continued work will no doubt pay off..right?

But is my Blog getting in the way of me Writing Scripts? Quite possible.

Either way, this intro is perhaps one of more “traditional bloggy” intro’s I’ve even written in The Jobber Blogger, so if you’ve read this, give me a shout out, leave a comment, that would be neat!

I guess what I was getting at, is that I do love the routine the Jobber Blogger has given me, and I am proud that I keep this up as I do, whether many people read it, though I know some do. Thank you to those who are loyal! Means a lot, I’d like to know who you are though!

Aside from Linda and Jon.

And we’re back!

Stopped for something to eat and then got watching Game Scoop…. and Video Reviews of Video Games! Ahh!

bootcamp

redline

I shall keep this short and sweet!

Boot Camp episode 4 was awesome! I loved it. Sure the matches were cut short due to time constraints and some of them felt rather heavily edited.

But the matches we saw unravel the best, were the best.

Trying to look back on it now, but a number of the matches were much better than the matches those had who got through.

For example, the opening match between Noam and El I don’t remember his name, was fantastic. I think in the end it comes down to this.

What does TNA need?

Which is a nice surprise. Given that the higher ups tend to shove as much talent into a Division that is already crammed full.

The high flyers were good for the X-Division, but are they needed? The mid carders were good, but nothing “special”.

I think they chose the best talent of the lot, despite Sha Samuels who didn’t make the cut, as I thought his intensity was on a much better level. I bought into him.

Grado is the sticking point. Because what we saw of his match, was nothing.

He did 3 clotheslines and won.

Literally.

The rest of the match he just put over Sha. Which is fine, part of Wrestling.

His skill is getting people behind him, but will that sell in America? How long will it last, and without the licence of Madonna’s music, who is going to sing?

For me, my favourite from the get go is still there, and only stronger now.

And that’s Kay Lee Ray.

She’s different, she’s excited, she’s passionate, and she’s a she!

TNA is packed full of guys, aside from lacking “Tag-Teams” the Knockouts Division would look lovely with some more talent that actually compete in it.

She’s perfect for that, so that’s where I stand!

Impact Wrestling Logoblueline

TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 12/11/14

Impact kicked off with James Storm and actually answered my question of “how would that work?” and did it well.

I am please that Storm is giving this Character his all, but it’s just… eh.

Shame we had to put up with Eddie and Davey fumbling around the Mic in this “story”. I know it was supposed to grab the audience, but really it little sense to have Davey even “consider” Storm’s words.

Whatever.

blueline

The Wolves vs. James Storm and Abyss – World Tag-Team Championships

Thankfully I seem to Love Violence. Least of the entertainment sort.

Storm used his Bull-Rope to tie Davey’s foot to the Ropes and repeatedly smashed a Chair and then a Briefcase onto Davey’s leg. Awesome.

Now I actually completely forgot that Storm still had the Feast of Fired Briefcase for a Shot at the World Tag-Team Championships.

So well done TNA, I wasn’t expecting that.

I knew Abyss and Storm won the belts, so I assumed Abyss would join Storm’s “revolution” but I couldn’t piece together how it was going to happen.

Now the Title Change apparently was due to The Wolves’ contracts being up soon, and without a New TV Deal in place, the Tag Belts were put on guys sticking around.

Funny that TNA, the TNA guys who have been with your company for the longest time are those who are still here, so you’re giving them the Belts, because they are loyal. Shame you only do it now, and not when it mattered…

I look at this in two ways, I’m excited to see if Abyss will have a “Change” like Sanada and Manik, I want Abyss to go crazy again, and it’s just not happened, at all since… years.

I’m sure that makes sense somewhere.

On the other side, are you as sick as I am that Abyss is always teaming up with somebody to be a Side-Kick for a while, before he finally breaks free and lets the Monster loose, then disappears to then re-appear as someone else’s sidekick.

Why doesn’t Abyss start a faction? That’d be different.

blueline

Madison vs. Taryn Terrell

To say they’ve been feuding a little back and forth, they built it to this match, and it was a clean win for the Face.

Which means is that the end of it?

Come to think of it, I’m sick of that too. The Face always chases the Heel, till the Face wins then it’s over. Why doesn’t the Heel win?

The only time I can think of that happening is WrestleMania 19 when Rock finally defeats Stone Cold at WrestleMania.

And that was great, from what I remember.

Madison vs. Taryn though, was very good.

They’re both good Wrestlers, though I’m more of a Madison guy.

Taryn picked up the win with a Cutter. Least it was slightly better by elevating Madison off the ropes beforehand.

blueline

Kenny King took to the Ring to explain MVP was having a Photo Shoot. And should you be interested in those pictures, then I have an exclusive!

mvpphotoshootna

King then went on about Lashley, MVP and himself being a strong unit. Which I hope they remain to be.

Chris Malendez and Mr. Anderson come out to answer King’s Challenge of a one-on-one match between King and Malendez.

In this situation though King and Anderson stand out stronger. I like Anderson’s position, and I love King’s sucker-punch to Anderson.

Sorry Malendez.

blueline

Jesse, DJZ, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky vs. Knux, Crazy Steve and Rebel – Tag-Team – Handicap – Elimination

You might be asking yourself, what was the point in this match?

It’s a good question.

They started feuding months ago, it grew because of Robbie E’s fear of clowns, which led to him leaving for a while, to coming back, to leaving for more.

And it’s still ongoing. Not even an end in sight.

All this match did was put over Crazy Steve. Which is great, but shame for them not to put him over until it was obvious he was a fan-favourite.

Jesse is probably the most forgetful guy on the roster for me. I honestly forget he’s around.

I love Robbie E, and I think he and Jesse work brilliantly together as The Bromans, sucks they aren’t in the Tag-Title picture to be fair.

But one thing you rarely see, is why Jesse is on the Roster. In this match, against Crazy Steve, he showed some great potential.

It’s a side of him we barely see, so perhaps that should be focussed on, I’m up for having Jesse one on one with Crazy Steve. blueline

Storm Slapped Manik for introducing him to big Indian guy!

blueline

Tyrus (w/EC3) vs. Eric Young (w/Spud)

I’ve suddenly lost interest in Writing this.

Spud is certainly stepping up, and so far people are responding to it. To be fair I am actually looking forward to Spud vs. EC3, whenever it happens.

The idea of having Tyrus in TNA long time doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Clearly, I don’t know anything.

But with him losing, one would imagine EC3 would turn on him fairly quick, EC3 probably win, Tyrus fired. Something along those lines… “insert Gene Snitsky line here”.

The good news is that Lashley beat the crap out of EY, finally.

Austin Aries ran to the rescue and Challenged Lashley to a match in the Main Event.

blueline

For some reason Samoa Joe was “injured” last week and has relinquished the X-Division Championship.

No, this makes no sense.

I don’t know what the point of this is, I’m guessing the belt is going with Low Ki. But hey, Tigre Uno gets the job of being a filler.

I’m still hoping he goes into Storm’s revolution.

Or as I said last week, goes to compete for Lucha Underground, which is the best solution.

Also whilst on the topic I haven’t seen this week’s episode yet… and yes, it’s bugging me!

lucha-underground-tna blueline

Samuel Shaw (w/ Brittany) vs. Gunner – No DQ

So this a weird one.

Gunner and Shaw, I don’t really care. I didn’t dislike watching it unfold by any means, but I don’t really care.

Between the two of them, Shaw is far more interesting to watch. I think Gunner is full of potential, but he’s not going anywhere. He’s the same as he was. So he’s good.. but he’s not really, must see.

I do think he’s capable of it, I just think he needs a good Gimmick, a good Character to get behind. I’d like Gunner to be committed, Gunner vs. Shaw in a Committed match like Shaw had with Anderson, only Shaw won.

Gunner forced to stay in a padded cell, send him insane, bring back some “war memories”. That would be a cool character. Just saying.

My original point was that Gunner and Shaw on the surface as a storyline, not that compelling. But boy did they have a great match. And Gunner brought it.

Almost straight from the Superplex onto the Chairs, with Brittany screaming for Shaw, Gunner just pulled him out and Power-Bombed him onto the stairs. Was awesome.

I expected Shaw to take a win honestly, but it was Gunner who defeated Shaw.

I actually hope this isn’t the end of their feud, and I really like my story idea for Gunner… do that.

blueline

Lashley vs. Austin Aries

So Lashley was pissed off because MVP was at a photo shoot, and Roode had the night off for promotional reasons.

Either that or this happened…

mvproodetnaMaybe that’s why Lashley is so annoyed?

Anyway!

I love that Lashley is finally the Destroyer he should have been originally when he had the World Championship.

Aries is the best guy to go through, because he’s going to stick up for guys, but he’s also the best Wrestler on the Roster, if Lashley dominates him, then who else can stop him?

I love that this “match” just turned into Lashley beating down on Aries.

Spear on the outside to a Count Out, then a Powerslam on the Ramp and a Cross-face to send a message.

Solid main event.

Can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to Lashley just beating people up. That’s if he actually continues to do it, rather than it being a One Off. blueline

I’ve never been more excited for the next episode of Impact like I was when this ended. The “Next Week on Impact Wrestling” segment actually made me think Taped Television is worth the effort.

The Lashley and Roode confrontation looks good, but as you’d expect.

I love the clip of MVP beating up someone backstage with King asking him “why?”.

Now I’m fairly sure who it is, but I love it when things get shaken up!

Till next time!

I guess the time is ticking and sticking like a freshly licked lolly pop I dropped on my trousers.

Also known as Trouser Pop, an unknown genre of Pop Music and happens to be the title of a lesser known Hanson song.

That’s a good sign for things to come huh?

Yes it’s Sunday, it’s 8:55pm and I’ve got two hours to complete the Jobber Blogger before my eagerly awaiting fans gather round to read it. By fans, I mean two. By eagerly awaiting I mean… they aren’t.

blueline

Taryn Terrell vs. Madison Rayne vs. Velvet Sky vs. Angelina Love vs. Rebel vs. Brittany vs. Havok – #1 Number One Contenders Match – Knockouts Championship

Ah hah!

I actually remembered to follow up with my Predictions List! Yes, this makes everything much better and far more entertaining!

Also this happens to be the second time I remember to do it. So yay? The first was when Anderson had the “Committed” match with Shaw. When the hell was that?

No Surrender was pretty good, and TNA has been pretty damn good of late as it is. Even more praise is shooting out the kazoo for their latest Impact Tapings.

So kudos, and kazoodos for kicking off the Televised special with a Wrestling Match! You wouldn’t think it was that hard to get right, would you?

kazoo

I made the prediction that Havok would be the smart money to bet on, I was right. Too bad I went with Velvet huh?

Despite the chances in this match, it was really just to give Havok an exhibition. I don’t dislike her. I like to poke fun with the Disco Bane and Skrillex comments, but hey, makes me laugh. Isn’t that why I write this thing every week, to make myself laugh!? Of course it is.

discobane

Rebel takes a hard landing to the floor rolling down the Steel Steps, despite her not really being ring ready, on the ground of her breaking her arm. She does have a good look and seems to enjoy throwing herself down some steps. So, the future is bright?

However, her doing the splits to dodge, though “different”, highly impractical.

How’s that for journalism.

Havok Won – no face!

Kenny King vs. Chris Malendez

This was an awkward impromptu match.

Here’s why this annoyed me. MVP and Kenny King headed to the ring to call out Malendez, to then give him this great opportunity of Carrying luggage.

Why was that scripted?

Why waste time with that crap? Malendez needs some work on the mic, but hey, first time. I can let that slide.

Then we immediately hit the territory, just like that. King goes on about how he’s only got one leg, go back to “Boot Camp”, blah blah blah.

Now I’m not going to pretend like I’m offended, because I’m really not. What bugs me is that Malendez gets the sympathy vote, I’m sure that’s the last thing he personally wants. Having someone who is obviously not a fit for the Wrestling business, be written as a Character who is not fit for the Wrestling business, who has people mock him, and then beat the crap out of him.

Why would you sign the guy?

You signed the guy because he’s impressive, because he’s 6ft plus, he has a good look, he’s strict, trained, a War Hero.

Don’t let him be an idiot who casually walks out to meet the bad guy and offered jobs of lackeys, then gets made fun of then beaten down.

The only people that wins over, are those who feel sorry for him. I feel sorry for him, it’s a horrible, horrible accident, but what empowers that, is his stride to overcome it.

What I don’t feel sorry for, is someone getting into the Wrestling business to suck ass at it. Again, I know he’s being Written this way, but how am I supposed to get on board with that, that doesn’t reflect on the sympathy angle where I cheer for him because “He’s very good, given his disability”. When you could have people cheer for him because “He’s Very Good”.

The entire match was Malendez getting the crap kicked out of him by Kenny, till in the end he Managed a roll up and won, then got beaten up even more.

Yay, this guy sucks! Well done TNA on signing someone who sucks, again!

This is my point, you tell me how good he is, you show me clips of how he can wrestle, you put Bully, Devon, Anderson and Kurt’s stamp of approval on him, then you write his character so he sucks and can’t defend himself.

What am I supposed to take from that?

Anderson came to the rescue, so I guess this is a learning curve type of thing. So who knows. But it’s TNA, so I can take a pretty damn good guess.

blueline

Homicide vs. Samoa Joe – X-Division Championship

I’m going to say it, the fact that this match took place, is ridiculous.

Sure, back in the day Homicide was a “guy” in the Division, but he’s never been great. Now you’ve got guys who are great, and they’ve been passed up literally for months to cater to the “Home field” advantage by bringing in crowd favourites to bury your talent.

Wow, you hired this awesome Luchador from Mexico, you’re right, he’s incredible. But he sucks compared to “Blam Blam” Homeboy I can do a freakin flip, Homicide.

He’s not even signed with you. So you use him to bury the guys you have signed to your roster.

Here’s a thought, screw the home field advantage and build your talent.

Guess what, Samoa Joe isn’t from New York, but people love him. Crazy Steve has barely done anything or given any screen time, and they love him too.

People respond to Tigre Uno because he’s so impressive in the ring. Give him the time.

Also lol –

homicideblamblamhomeboyI told you I make myself laugh.

Speaking of things that make me laugh, Tenay and Taz plugged the next round of Impact Tapings by saying “You can see yourself on TV!”

Which is one of two things, or in fact, both things!

Your struggling to sell tickets so you add in the extra boost of people being on TV, which is a poor, poor way to sell your product.

And number two, in a related sense, there will be so little people attending the TV Tapings, that you are Guaranteed to see yourself on Television.

Just saying.

Blam Blam hit a Cutter on Joe and didn’t win, thank fully. I hate the Cutter. But I also Love the Cutter. DDP was the guy, Orton uses it well, Bully pulls it out here and there. It bugs me when people use the same finishes. Least it’s not as annoyed as Taryn using it, but whatever.

The only good thing from Homicide using the Cutter is that Joe countered it into a joke – mid air, and won the match.

James Storm, Sanada and the new Super Manik then crashed the segment.

There is no reason, at all, for James Storm to be re-designing the X-Division as Cultural Luchadores.

My only hope is that Tigre Uno might actually get some better TV Time.

predictwonbluelineThe Hardyz vs. Team 3D vs. The Wolves – Ladder Match

Again, fairly obvious who was going to Win this match.

The first match in the Series, was freakin awesome! The Tables Match, wasn’t as good, still good, just not as good as I had hoped.

But then I always find Tables Match lack. They really aren’t all that exciting unless quite a few Tables are used. Hence my moan at only one member of the Team going through a Table. Which means people have to put themselves through a few tables, or they introduce other weapons to make them more entertaining.

However, Ladder Matches can be fantastic on their own. And also work better with more weapons.

If a match is So Good, you should just watch it.

There’s nothing I can say to do it justice, so just watch it.

This match was awesome, best in the Series so far and I will put into the Match of the Year Nomination, however! I might also take it out given on how good the final match in the Series is, and people are saying IT IS AMAZING!

Super hyped!

Sucks it’s not at BFG though.

The Wolves pick up the win.

predictwonnoface bluelineBram vs. Gunner

This match happened.

Not sure why they put it between the top two matches of the card.

Earlier on in the night Gunner told Shaw that Brittany has a thing for him, to which he replies “My mind is already occupied with someone else”.

Billy and Chuck, I’m telling you.

gunnerandshawandanderson

Gunner “injured” his knee, Shaw went crazy and got involved, accidently clothesline’d Gunner and Bram picked up the win.

Despite the crap story with Gunner and Shaw, Bram’s rise to the top is quite interesting. They keep pushing how good he is. And guess what, I believe it. Because he’s impressive, he wins, he fights, he doesn’t back down. Not like Malendez, who gets his ass kicked because he politely turned down being a lackey! Why would I like that!!!?

bluelineBobby Roode vs. Bobby Lashley – World Heavyweight Championship

I wonder if Lashley will be called Bobby again now?

Another thing that goes through my head is wondering what Roode was thinking when he decided to wear some crappy looking sex jacket to the ring.

His Robe was awesome. It worked. This looks terrible.

Something else that is pretty damn awesome, is Lashley’s new music. I’ve always liked it, but I enjoy how it just changes the mood. He feels like a force. I like that.

Which brings me to what I really, really don’t like.

Lashley rolls out the ring and MVP calls for a Time-Out, and the ref lets them have it. MVP and King wipe his face, and continue to get involved.

Lashley should not have these guys outside for him. He’s supposed to be this beast, he’s supposed to be unstoppable.

When you give him help, he looks weak. He shouldn’t be booked weak. You shouldn’t have his friends wiping his face! No!! That’s just No….Nooo!! NOOO!!

NooooooooooooFanHe’s even doing a Face-Palm… could it get any better!

Do you know what I do like, is the Roode Bomb. I enjoy the move, but I detest the name.

Utterly stupid name for a super cool move.

What makes it cooler is Roode using it to “Roode Bomb” Lashley right to the floor, and Credit to Lashley for taking it, literally right to the floor. Looked really painful, and also really cool!

In the end though Roode leap frogged Lashley’s attempted Spear and “injured” his leg, to which Lashley then speared him and won.

I don’t know quite where to place the match.

The match was really good! Really good! But it’s not so memorable. I also feel this isn’t done yet.

Which means!

predictwonnoface

I knew Lashley was going to win well before this match was going to take place, EY spoiled it in an interview I read. So technically the Prediction doesn’t count!

bluelineRight now, I’m in the mood for Bound for Glory.

I want a great PPV just like Slammiversary was.

Though with all the problems in TNA right now, the booking, change arounds, no matches are really being built for the Biggest show of the year, in Japan of all places. The only thing they are building is James Storm’s revolution.

Who knows.

Till then.
