Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.11.2007
Sting and Abyss destroy each other, Sabin outsmarts Jerry Lynn and the Christian Coalition is in full effect!
Remember to send your thoughts on the show for the 3R's!
If you would, include:
-Angle and Joe arrive. Angle blows off the chick, but Joe stays to talk. He says if Angle wins the title tonight it is signed, sealed and delivered that he gets the title shot at Destination X. He promised to take out Steiner and Tomko.
-We get a video package for Cage vs. Angle.
-Borash shills the PPV and hypes the AJ vs. Rhino chain match.
-We get a video package for Rhino vs. AJ.
-Cornette and Hemme had a meeting, she is mad because nobody takes her seriously. It is a Tuxedo match she is having…oh no…not Big Fat Oily Guy!
-In our pre-show match Sonjay Dutt and Jay Lethal took on Devine and Kazarian of Serotonin with Bentley at ringside. Damn fine little match here, it really should have been on PPV instead of the baseball or Hemme crap, or what I imagine will be crap. Serotonin got the win via shenanigans @ 5:17 via pin. Very good stuff, better than most junk we have seen on Impact lately (Almost more wrestling in that one match alone as well) and a solid **, maybe **¼. I think with a few more minutes, they could have had a very good PPV match. Raven came to the ring in his wacky evil video game villain outfit and caned the mall once and smiled. BUILD CHARACTER BOYS!
-JB is with Shelley in the back. He says he has footage of Eric and Brooks. They go into the bathroom and Nash is taking a leak. He tells Nash about the video, and Nash looks happy. Nash says to get the boys and they'll watch. Backlund is here, he was in a stall. He says they talked about porn and storms off after them.
-Tenay and West run down the card again.
-We get a video package for Sting vs. Abyss.
-JB is with Abyss and Mitchell. Mitchell says that Sting has tried to paint his as the devil, and for such a righteous man he sure bends the truth. In reality I took a broken man from the gutter and made him a winner, a success, and a champion. You told everyone about him shooting a man and tried to break him. You are the monster Sting, look at your assaults on me, I have been a gentleman. This would have all been avoided if you kept you hands to yourself and minded your own business. Abyss gets angry because Mitchell mentioned the shooting, and Abyss calls him an idiot and that he is clueless and useless if Mitchell leaves. Mitchell says the end of times are upon us no, and one of us will be gone for good.
-WOW THE TNA CAGE DANCERS ARE BACK! 3D vs. LAX kick off the show, and the chicks are here because Ray said something about the strip club. Wow, they have little dinner tables and gimmicks in the ring…ITALY~!
-We see Tomko and Steiner arriving, and yelling at each other. Steiner tells Tomko to get his bags. He then hits on Leticia. Scott Steiner is a great man.
-Ray and Devon hit the ring. They aren't waiting and call out LAX as we head to the final PPV hype video.
-A good PPV opening video, hugely putting over Cage, very good stuff.
-Tenay and West welcome us to the PPV.
-3D is still in the ring waiting on LAX.
