    Default TNA Tapings March 2nd - 5th *SPOILERS*

    With all the releases, this promises to be far more intriguing than January's set of shows.

    Alberto Del Rio will be there tonight, and is apparently receiving a massive push. Jim Ross may or may not be hinting at him in commentary booth for the takings.

    JR on commentary would be really intriguing.

    Turns out the new commentator is just Jeremey Borash. Also, Pritchard came out to say TNA is dead, the company is just Impact moving forward.

    Impact starts with Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards fighting from the back and into the crowd. Security separates them.

    Jeremy Borash tells Josh Mathews that there are changes. They talk about Mike Tenay and Jim Ross. Jeremy says the person at the announce table needs to change. Jeremy will be joining commentary and there will be changes.

    Cody and Brandi Rhodes come out.

    Match One: Reno Scum defeat Bram and Kingston.

    Match Two: Braxton Sutter defeated Marsche Rockett, DJ Z, and Caleb Konley. Allie was with Sutter. Sutter pinned Rockett with a swinging neckbreaker. Laurel came out after the match onto the stage.

    KC Quinn (Brandi Lauren) vs. Brandi Rhodes does not happen because Cody says Impact will not pimp out the Rhodes name. Cody gives KC 45 and says it is 20 more than they would pay you.

    Rosemary attacks KC from behind after Cody and Brandi go to the back.

    Bruce Pritchard out and he says this Impact is not the same Impact. There was a group of talent that wanted to be great, but it did not happen. Bruce says TNA is dead. New owners, new management and a new name. Bruce talks about how you start a company at the top with the greatest hybrid athlete. Bruce brings out Bobby Lashley.

    Bruce and Bobby talk about how Lashley will be the best ever and no one can come out to take the title from him.

    Alberto de Patron comes out.

    Alberto tells Bobby he hasn’t beaten him. EC3 comes out.Carter says Alberto cannot come in on the first night and get a title match, he needs to earn it. Carter demands a title match. Bobby says no. Alberto wants to fight Lashley. The match is made. El Patron vs Lashley is official.

    The man known as Zeb Colter in an alternate universe comes out. Dutch says this is the first time he appeared on Impact. Dutch talks about how much he loves wrestling. He mentions being in Impact and then runs through the roster the last time he was here and mentioned AJ, Joe, Sting , Roode, Nash, and more. They left because of a lack of leadership and vision.

    Cody comes out and demands Moose come out but Borash reminds him Moose is in Japan. Cody throws GFW Next Gen belt into the ring and then does a sit in.

    Garza Jr. and Laredo Kid defeat Eli Drake and Tyrus when Garza rolls up Drake.

    Sienna defeats Rachael Ellering.

    Alberto el Patron defeats Bobby Lashley after two ref bumps and a belt shot. Ethan Carter III watched from ramp. After the match Earl Hebner comes out and tells Bruce Pritchard, Pat Kenney, and someone else what happened.

    The Saturday afternoon taping will be a Knockouts special. Announced in addition to the current Knockouts, Leva Bates and Santana Garrett.
    Impact 3/16:

    For next week:. Eli Drake versus Moose does not happen because Cody attacks Moose in the back and hits CrossRhodes on the ramp.

    Good to see TNA throwing the title on Del Rio right away.

    Assuming he wins...

    Former WWE Champion Alberto El Patron just defeated Bobby Lashley to win the TNA championship in his official TNA in-ring debut. As we noted earlier on the site, he is in full-time and was coming in with a big push.

    When John Gaburick was running TNA creative, he intended to bring in Alberto and have him win the title on his first night but they never came to terms. Under the new regime Alberto came to terms, and still ended up with the title on the first night
    Talk about a massive push indeed.

    You'd think wrestling would have learned by now that putting a Title on someone on their debut rarely works out any good. Especially when it's the main Title of the company.

    These tapings kinda make EC3 look bad don't they.

    "You need to earn it" "No he doesn't" then Del Rio just wins.


    A ton and a half of credit to Rad for this superb artwork

    Predictable giving it to Del Rio right away. Now waiting for Jack Swagger to debut, challenge, and defeat Del Rio for the title.

    I love that Alberto's name is grammatically incorrect. You think he would have mentioned it to them.

    Alberto de Patron = Alberto of the Boss. No bueno.

    Hightlights from the future episode include Alberto giving up the title but becomes #1 Contender, a new version of LAX with Konan and Homicide returning along with new members EYFBO and Angel Rose, new tag team champs in two weeks, and the Jarretts are here to Make Impact Great Again.

    These should air on March 16th.

    * The World Heavyweight Title is now vacant as Alberto El Patron gave it up.

    * ODB defeated Rebel. They both engaged in a kissfest with Earl Hebner.

    * Backstage, Impact officials take the World Heavyweight Title from Alberto and give it back to Bobby Lashley due to the controversial ending to their match.

    * Alberto comes to the ring and says he loves this place because he can be Patron. He says this is his house. He calls Lashley to the ring but Ethan Carter III comes instead. EC3 says Alberto needs to earn the top spot. EC3 challenges him to a top contender’s match. Alberto refuses and says he’s here to fight the big dog, not the b—h. A fight breaks out and Alberto accepts.

    * X Division Champion Trevor Lee retains over Braxton Sutter, Andrew Everett and Suicide.

    * Sienna comes out to address Allie, who was out with Sutter. She threatens them and says Romeo & Juliet always meet their demise.

    * Bruce Prichard comes out and announces that we will crown new Tag Team Champions in two weeks. The Decay come out to interrupt. Reno Scum interrupts them. Out next is Laredo Kid and Garza Jr. They’re all interrupted by the returning LAX, made up of Konnan, Homicide, Angel Rose and 2 guys from ROH.

    * Davey Richards defeated Suicide. Angelina Love was with Davey.

    * Garza Jr., Laredo Kid and Mahabali Shera defeated Fallah Bahh, Bokara and Envious Abraham. JB announced this as an international six-man tag match.

    * Reno Scum defeated The Decay when Rosemary accidentally sprayed mist at Crazzy Steve.

    * LAX defeated The DCC. There were problems between the DCC members.

    * Karen Jarrett came out for a promo. She said the past several years have been difficult but now it’s all about changes. She can feel energy backstage and among the production crew. The audience chants for Josh Mathews to be fired. Ethan Carter III interrupts and says he’s here to make Impact great but not for the Jarretts. Karen kisses up to him. Mathews interrupts and goes on a rant, saying the fans were too cheap to buy a ticket to NXT. He belittles Karen and all her changes. Mathews claims he’s one of the best things going in Impact. Karen slaps him down.

    * TNA Knockouts Champion Rosemary defeated Santana.

    * Alberto El Patron defeated EC3 to become the new #1 contender. Patron won by submission.
    There will be 4 teams competing the vacant Impact Tag Championships: Decay, LAX, Reno Scum, and Garza & Laredo Kid. If my timing is right the match is scheduled for the March 29 episode.

    Also, they're continuing to build to a split between DCC.

    This taping feels a lot different. Much more attitude to it. Several curse words being thrown out in promos and you have Konnan and LAX flipping birds all over the place. Feels much less sanitized than the last year or so of Impact.

    I saw this from a distance, but it looked like Konnan and some of LAX got into it with a fan as they were leaving their match. I'm not certain if it was a plant or not, but it didn't look like it was being filmed. It was verbal, not physical, but I'm seeing more security around the venue. Some other fans seem to be pretty rowdy too. Might be time to call Ronnie Lang and Atlas Security if this keeps up.

    This is such a great line, but I'm not *entirely* sure that the direction you want to go with your television product is your lead announcer saying that your show is not as good as WWE's developmental fed.

    It's Alberto el patron = Alberto the boss. Not what you wrote.


    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    There's no way that Matthews line can make air. It's such an utter burial of your entire company. I know he's a heel, but there's a difference between heel heat and promotion killing heat. This is the latter. It has to be cut. If Josh went off script, then HE has to be cut. In the 2nd show of the new era, Impact was absolutely and completely buried. It's flagrantly unacceptable.

    I have no problem with the NXT Line, since it seems they're going to transition Matthews into a heel manager, and Matthews being the obnoxious dickhead who rubs everyone the wrong way by saying dumb shit being turned into a character is somewhat smart. Especially since he won't be on commentary anymore.

    Also you have to believe he desperately wishes he was calling NXT over Impact.

    Exactly. People claiming burying your own company doesn't work then please see:

    Outsiders burying WCW leads to NWO
    Vince burying cartoony next generation WWE leads to Attitude era

    Shining examples.

    Double-edged swords. Besides, that's WCW and WWE. Both instances brought about a change in philosophy, for good or ill. TNA is doing the exact same shit they did before, when they said the company sucked. Nothing has changed. Josh saying what he said is not a good thing, especially since he's right. Every single one of those fans would be at NXT if they could. Highlighting that is a bad move for a supposed fresh start.

    The devil is in the details.

    None of those examples took a shot at the fans for being there.

    I don't think we're going to look back and think 'Gee TNA had it all figured out and then Josh Matthews had to open his big mouth...' but it's a symbolic issue. It's like the Fingerpoke of Doom, an angle that actually drew interest, but it typified the backstage politics and how transparent WCW had become.

    At what point did Dutch and Jeff realise they would have been better completely ditching the Impact name altogether? You can call it whatever you want to, but as soon as everyone hears Matthews and sees the DCC, Decay and the X-Division championship defended they're automatically going to be thinking of TNA. They should have just hit the reset button altogether, released whatever talent they could get away with, rebrand a few others and start over.

    How long until Matt Morgan shows up and reminds everybody how mediocre he is? All the tools and yet has no idea how to use any of them to get over.

    .
    WCW is not dead because of the early success of the NWO or being self loathing. If anything it's dead because of the opposite. It believed its own hype.

    Attitude era caused irreparable damage? How so? Because we'll never aspire to those heights again? With your attitude we certainly won't.
