411’s TNA Lockdown Report 4.23.06|
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.23.2006
An X-Division pioneer returns. Team Sting and Team Jarrett battle in the lethal lockdown. AJ Styles almost dies for his craft. And Cage shows his mean streak...but does he leave with the belt?
Feel free to send your thoughts on the show to me. Thumbs up, down, middle. Best and worst match and thoughts.
This is different. The pre-show is pre-taped this year. I guess they didn't want to mess with pre-show matches and then being rushed to put the cage up.
Tenay and West are standing in the ring with the cage up running down the card. I think that they painted the cage black, or the pre-tape cage is black.
We get a video package, highlighting various matches.
JB discusses the Cage vs. Abyss match, and we get a video history of the feud, including the camera work of Alex Shelley.
Tenay and West now hype Lethal Lockdown, with Team Sting (Sting, AJ Styles, Ron Killings and Rhino) vs. Team Jarrett (JJ, Scott Steiner and America's Most Wanted © (Storm and Harris). Two men start, and then when the cage fills up with all the men, the ceiling (with weapons hanging from it) will lower and the real mayhem begins!
We get a video package detailing the Sting vs. JJ feud.
Next is a video package featuring the LAX vs. James Gang feud.
JB is back to preview the Sabu vs. Samoa Joe © X Title match.
Video package is show hyping the match.
JB hypes the Team 3D vs. Team Canada Anthem/Flag match, with the usual video package.
West does the final hard sell for the show.
They play the really cool video that they used to close Impact.
The PPV opening video is the really kick ass video they have been plugging all week on TNAwrestling.com.
Tenay and West welcome us to the show.
