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.

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!

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!

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!

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

The Jobber Blogger

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

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

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

Does anyone read this?

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

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

blueline

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

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

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

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

TNA: IMPACT WRESTLING – 15/10/14

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

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

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

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

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

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

blueline

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

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

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

So… there you have it.

seano

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

End of. Kurt makes no sense.

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

It Just Don’t Make Sense!

Madison Rayne vs. Havok – Knockouts Championship

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

hebnersleep

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

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

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

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

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

blueline

Magnus vs. Matt Hardy

This Makes Me Happy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

blueline

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

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

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

That makes sense right?

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

Don’t hate it though.

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

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

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

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

Tyrus vs. Shark Boy

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

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

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

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

Everyone Tweet that at Taz!

doing a gene snitskyt

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

TNA – Breaking the mould.

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

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

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

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

…… Tyrus won.

blueline

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

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

So I was happy.

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

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

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

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

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

moonsaultsandswantons

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

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

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

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

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

blueline

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

Till then!
