TNA iMPACT! Tapings for March 29th

Source: PWinsider.com

    For Xplosion:

  • Angelina Love defeated Madison Rayne.
  • Team 3D comes to the ring and get on the mic. They mention a poll on the TNA website to determine the most popular tag team and it was a tie between them and the Motor City Machine Guns. Team 3D challenged the Machine Guns for the title shot that the Machine Guns earned at Generation X and the Machine Guns accepted.
  • Motor City Machine Guns versus Team 3D goes to a No Contest. During the match, Chris Sabin accidentally knocked out referee Slick Johnson. Earl Hebner came out to replace Johnson and the match ended with a double pin. Devon had Sabin pinned while Shelley pinned Ray.
  • They show a video on the big screen of Hulk Hogan apologizing to Jeff Jarrett for what Eric Bischoff has done to him over the last few weeks. Hogan tells Jarrett to go out there and kick A.J. Styles' butt tonight.
  • Jay Lethal walks into the office and Hogan and Lethal have what is described as a pretty funny interaction. Lethal was doing his Black Machismo gimmick with Hogan.
    _______________________________________________

  • They do the opening for Impact and The Band comes to the ring and they are joined by Bubba the Love Sponge. Bubba calls the fans 'marks' and 'sheep'. They say that Bubba fits with the Band because of what they do. Nash gets on the mic and he calls out Eric Young to apologize to him. Young comes to the ring and Nash says that what he did was not personal. Nash says that the six man tag match will not happen tonight. Nash offers Young a spot in The Band.
  • Young hits Nash, Hall, and Waltman and then he goes to choke Bubba but The Band attack Young and get the upper hand. Rob Van Dam and Jeff Hardy come to the ring and The Band leaves the ring.
  • Jeff Hardy announces to the crowd that the match will still happen and in honor of Lockdown, the match will take place inside a steel cage.
  • During this segment, Eric Young was getting a crowd reaction equal to Van Dam and Hardy.
  • Shannon Moore and Kazarian defeat TNA X Division Champion Doug Williams and Brian Kendrick when Moore pinned Kendrick after a leaping spinning neck breaker from the middle rope. After the match, Shannon Moore put make up on Kendrick.
  • D'Angelo Dinero comes out and he says that a moment that he has been waiting for his entire career was almost spoiled by A.J. Styles and Ric Flair. Despite their best efforts, he is alive and well. He says that Styles is a shadow in the streetlights and he is the godlight of TNA. Dinero tells Styles to get a spacesuit because at Lockdown he will take A.J. to the 'outer limits'. Dinero says that A.J. may be 'phenomenal' but he will never be the Pope. When the smoke clears, the Pope will have not only arrived but he will be pimpin.
  • Chelsea comes to the ring and Dinero asks how he can help her. Chelsea says that there is one thing that he can help her with and that is to help her become a ho. Desmond Wolfe gets to the ring through the crowd but Dinero throws Wolfe out of the ring. Dinero then makes out with Chelsea in the ring and sets her on the mat. Dinero leaves some money in her cleavage before leaving the ring.
  • Orlando Jordan was hanging above the ring and was then lowered to the mat covered in yellow tape. Jordan crawls up the ramp and goes towards the announce table where something was set up. The crowd was chanting 'that was creepy'.
  • Before anything could happen with Jordan, the thing set up for Orlando Jordan was taken down.
  • Jeremy Borash is in the back conducting an interview with Tara when Daffney attacked her. They brawl into the Impact Zone for their First Blood Match.
  • Tara defeats Daffney in a First Blood Match when Tara hit Daffney in the head with the tool box to cause Daffney to bleed. Daffney appeared to enjoy being busted open.
  • A.J. Styles defeats Jeff Jarrett with the Styles Clash. Ric Flair was ejected from ringside early in the match but he came back later in the match and distracted the referee. The referee was knocked out. Jarrett hit the Stroke from the second turnbuckle while the referee was out so there was no count. Eric Bischoff comes out with a guitar and he was going to hit Jarrett with it, but Jarrett stopped Bischoff. Styles hit Jarrett with a low blow and then got the win with the Styles Clash.
  • Eric Bischoff is backstage with Jay Lethal and Lethal instructed Bischoff to come up with a main event-esque match. Bischoff has a match in mind and he tells Lethal to go to the ring.
  • Jay Lethal defeats Beer Money with a small package on Roode while Storm was not paying attention.
  • Desmond Wolfe defeats D'Angelo Dinero as a result of hitting Dinero with brass knuckles while Chelsea distracted the referee.
  • The cage is being set up for the main event.
  • Kurt Angle and Ken Anderson cut promos talking about their cage match at Lockdown. It was announced that there will be a ladder match between Anderson and Angle on next week's Impact.
  • Eric Young, Rob Van Dam, and Jeff Hardy defeat The Band in a Steel Cage Match when Eric Young pinned Sean Waltman after an elbow drop from the top of the cage. The finish of the match saw Hardy hit a Swanton followed by a Five Star Frog Splash from Van Dam and finished with the elbow drop from the top of the cage.

iMPACT! March 22nd spoiler (mild)

Chelsea comes to the ring and Dinero asks how he can help her. Chelsea says that there is one thing that he can help her with and that is to help her become a ho. Desmond Wolfe gets to the ring through the crowd but Dinero throws Wolfe out of the ring. Dinero then makes out with Chelsea in the ring and sets her on the mat.

Now the 'Pope is pimpin' chant will actually have some meaning.

Impact and Raw were both brilliant. Impact really upped it's game this week, there was no nonsense, and even Eric Young announcing at the end despite being out of the ordinary was acceptable. If TNA continue like that, they'll keep getting higher ratings, just as long as they stay away from the strawberry floated up gooseberry fool they normally do.

Flair getting out of the van :lol: :lol: :lol:


In regards to the little competition between WWE and TNA going on here I'm neutral. WWE will always be my number one I guess in many ways not just because of current product but of it's history. However I love TNA, the opportunity they have, the attitude era style crash tv, and the fact that they now boast Hardy and RVD on the same show.

Capital Carnage & No Mercy 1999 are both up to Pre-Order on SilverVision.

http://www.silvervision.co.uk/products/ ... Discs.html

Highlights...

Disc 1: Jacqueline gets her tits out.
Disc 1: Vince McMahon calls British Tea time a load of "pious crap" & insinuates that Vinnie Jones is gay.
Disc 2: Mankind says "Wankers".

It's up to you whether that's worth £12.

This is it! After a year of predictions we've finally come full circle and reached our last stop, Wrestlemania 26. I'd like to say it was without any hitches but we've had a few on my end and on yours, well Zemo's. End of the day this was very much a year of refinement. Ironing out any problems in the format and finding out what's liked and what isn't. It will make GRAPL 3 all the stronger I promise. There have been some good moments over the year like ROTS 3 PPV winning streak, Pell coming from obscurity to enter only to get disqualified....twice and the Baron's numerous failed attempts at bending the rules. It has been a pleasure from start to finish and I'd like to thank everyone that entered, even Deadpool.

Let's get down to business. Seen as this is the grand finale and it's Wrestlemania 26 there will be 26 points up for grabs. Not only that but to make the finale as pure as possible I've removed most of the filler questions leaving only the Winners. GRAPL winners will be decided by predicting winners. The main events are huge points with lesser matches being only double points. Card is below. Don't get creative! I'll be marking these at 4am after the event so it needs to be as easy for me as possible.


You all know the rules but there are a few key changes for the finale:
The deadline is 2359 on the 28th. That is for everyone.
There is no mystery prize for coming first this time. Only prizes are the grand prizes
No bollocks in the predictions. Write one name and one name only (except for the tag match). Anything extra will render the prediction void.
1st prize is a £15 evoucher at Play or Amazon.
2nd prize is a £10 evoucher at Play or Amazon.
3rd prize is a £5 evoucher at Play or Amazon.
Winners will need to PM me their email registered at either retailer.
In case of a tiebreak I will come up with something.

I wasn't aware of this (I don't think it was widely reported) but WWE composer Jim Johnston is no longer with the company, & hasn't been for some time. Would partly explain why so much of the in-house music in recent times has been so poor & instead licensed out. They simply went into the vault for Luke Gallows.

:shock: When did he leave? Although you bring up an interesting point, within the past few years music has sucked, but he was around at least till 2006 wasn't he? Anybody download the last album? Does it state James A.Johnston as producer?


EDIT - He was listed for Jan 2010 - volume 10 WWE Music - so when did he leave? He's clearly not been that involved with in house music as of lately, unless he just really sucks now.

I have no idea. It was briefly mentioned yesterday on the Figure4Daily radio show with former WWE creative team member Andrew Goldstein. According to an old news story on gerwick he was scheduled to depart in 2006 over some disagreement. Can't find any follow up to that story.

What music is featured on disc 10? If there's some old/remixed songs on there he'd still be named.
