07-08-12 TNA Destination X

July 8, 2012


It’s the ONE night a year where I actually spend money on a TNA ppv…. Yeah, I know I curse their name and keep saying I wouldn’t pay for this shit but they’ve done a good build 2 years in a row for this show so I can fault them on that.

Happy belated 4TH of July everyone!

Austin Aries – “Soap Opera Mania”

April 14, 2011

Austin Airies cuts a promo to promote his upcoming match against Jon Moxley at EVOLVE 7 on April 19. He takes a few digs at WWE corporate’s latest blunder, the “Language of the WWE” information sheet, that they sent out to people who do voice-overs for WWE’s international markets. The text of the actual document is after the jump.

Austin Aries promo

  • Aries says that Scorpio Sky’s 2 wins are a fluke and that he needs to even their series 2-2. It’s no laughing matter.

~ Aries = gold. Period.

Famous B promo

  • He tells Ray Rosas that he doesn’t forget anything. He’s going to get his payback.

They start the show off with a Buggy interview!

  • My prayers (complaints and whining) have been answered. Dave Marquez must really read my bullsh*t!
  • Mikey O’shea’s bro interrupts the interview on his sister’s behalf.
  • So Cal Crazy intervenes and calls him out.

–WTF? Buggy didn’t even get a word in. Way to make your women wrestlers look strong, NWA Hollywood. Weak segment.

Famous B. pins Tommy Wilson

  • Wilson tries to cut a promo and the crowd goes all PWG on him and starts a “You Shut Up” chant. He calls Famous B a wannabe. Harsh.
  • FB gets on a sleeper but is rammed into the turnbuckle.
  • Wilson counters another sleeper with a belly to back suplex.
  • Nice sequence where Wilson counters a sleeper with a potential sidewalk slam, but then FB counters with a headscissors. Very cool.
  • FB rolls over a powerbomb, rolls Wilson up for three and gets the ‘upset.’

Wilson attacks FB afterwards and Cedric the Hitman joins in the beatdown.

Andrew Hellman makes the save with a chair.

— Good short match. However, I refuse to call Wilson ‘Mr. Megastar’. It’s beyond corny. But perhaps that might be what NWA Hollywood is going for. C’mon NWA.

I wasn’t feeling the multiple sleeper hold attempts by FB. I don’t recall him using a sleeper on previous episodes so the attempts seemed to come out of nowhere. The match certainly picked up steam when FB used his speed and agility to avoid Wilson’s power moves.

Ugh. Not really digging the overuse of singles doing tag team matches to consolidate the feuds. I guess we’ll be seeing Wilson and Cedric vs. Hellman and B in the near future.

They show a collection of promos of most of the participants in the main event battle royal.

–This was excellent. It gets you psyched for the match and adds tons of meaning.

Todd Chandler & Bandon Parker defeat Lucha Machine & Ray Rosas

  • Chandler and Parker dominate early with three double team moves in a row. This almost seems like a tornado tag match. C’mon ref!
  • Lucha and Ray go heel to gain momentum.
  • Rosas gets stuck between Chandler and Parker and is destroyed by a chop fest. Wooo!
  • Chandler sets Lucha up in a tree of woe, Parker with a Super Ghetto Stomp from the top for the win.

–Good opener. What I liked most about this match was that it was kept short. All four men can certainly go but the double teams seemed a bit forced. Sometimes less is more. But I’ll be honest, I’m a huge Low Ki vs. KENTA fan and the Super Ghetto Stomp finish just made me want to see that classic ROH match again.
