Friday, December 18, 2009
We open with Foley tearing up an empty studio trying to beat up Nash. I think he did more damage to himself and the studio. All because he was sent to the wrong house. Um what the hell are you all doing? That was one of the worst gimmicks yet.
Abyss's promo was very good, hinting at what many of us did not get to see last week. I know there was a hardcore match that could not air on the network.
Brother Ray vs Matt Morgan in a lumberjack match. I can't call him the evil druid any more cause he actually got rid of the bad robe. Yay. Brother Ray started off looking strong in this with a series of forearms to the back and shoulders of Morgan. Morgan turned it around with a headbutt. He then got Ray backed into the corner for his trademark elbows then used a sidewalk slam for a near fall. Brother Ray then used a backdrop suplex on Morgan gaining a bit of control. Morgan got tossed out of the ring where upon Team 3D lumberjacks started their beatdown. Morgan got back into the ring where upon Brother Ray started in with a series of chops, but to no use. Morgan used a closeline on him just before Brother Ray rolled out of the ring to be beatdown by Morgan's lumberjacks. Morgan was about to go for his elevation suplex but Neal ducked in the ring for a low blow. This gave Brother Ray a chance to use a DDT for the win.
So the list for this weekends feast or fired line up includes half of World Elite. Eric Young better not loose! TNA would not be TNA without Young. Also The show will not be on next week (Dec 24th) but will return in two weeks for a special 4 hour episode on Dec 31st
The return of Jeff Jarrett. Very very cool. Too bad he had on a hat for a bad vampire movie. What is it with the men on this show and picking crappy vampire movies to talk about? Millions of vampire movies and .....
Jay Lethal vs Tatanka in another legend's challenge. I like Lethal I just hate the gimmick and the moo-moo. Lethal started off looking good with a series of punches but Tatanka used a short closeline knocking Lethal to the mat. He then used about 4 leg drops on Lethal. Lethal did manage to get a large set of knees to the back of Tatanka knocking him down before using a double sledge hammer off the top rope. Tatanka then sent Lethal flying with a brutal looking back body drop. He then used a death drop for the win. I am not sure what the point of this series is, if it is to present the legends for the upcoming show on Jan 4th? Or if it's to soon phase out this gimmick for Lethal? But you know, I did not ever think I would see Jay Lethal being the jobber in a match two in a row.
Daniels vs Wolfe. Wolfe went for his full nelson then turned it into a side headlock (I know it was not a side headlock but I missed what it was really called). Daniels got out of it only to have Wolfe slap it on again, twice. Daniels tried a rollthrough but Wolfe did not let go of the hold. Wolfe then used his knee to the shoulder of Daniels before tossing him across the ring. Daniels managed to get a side head lock of his own on Wolfe then got Wolfe down on the mat. I like that the crowd was split half chanting for Daniels half for Wolfe. Daniels got a wrist lock on Wolfe, and as Wolfe went for a roll to get out of it, Daniels hooked the leg for a near fall. Wolfe kicked out then used an upper cut. This then turned into a slap fest, before Daniels drove a flying knee into Wolfe's jaw. Daniels then used a top rope spring board for another near fall. Wolfe then used a flying hammerlock take down (FHD) for a near fall. Wolfe slapped a combo figure four armbar and cross face on Daniels but Daniels bit Wolfe's hand breaking the hold. This match hit it's ten minute time limit and was a draw.
Raven/Stevie/Steiner/British Invasion vs Styles/Angle/Tomko/Abyss/Lashley. Abyss pushed his team out of the way and hobbled in going right for Raven and Stevie. He sent them out of the ring with a large forearm then Raven bit Abyss's burned leg. Everyone else just kind of stood there for a minute. Steiner sent Lashley out of the ring, sending him from one guardrail to the other. This was not a match as much as pure chaos. The bell finally rang and we are in the ring with Brutus and Angle. Angle suplexed Brutus then tagged in the returning Tomko. Doug Williams tagged in only to get a boot to the shoulder from Tomko then got a large slam before Angle blind tagged himself back in. Brutus tagged back in as well and they double teamed Angle with the same necktie move they have been using as of late. Back and forth for a few minutes between the ring and the now street fight with Raven and the others before seeing Williams get suplexed once more by Angle. Then Big Useless ripped Tomko off the apron hard on to the floor breaking his nose by the looks of it. Styles finally tagged in, using closelines on Williams and Brutus. Styles got a roll up on Brutus for the win.
And the MotorCityMachine Guns! promo was .... um er boys.... I notice, I care, I still think you need to do something about your hair and your pants Mr. Sabin. Not changing for anyone... that sounds like a reply to something, maybe Chris Sabin really is reading this? We'll talk. And what was with Alex Shelley's floppy arm thingie can he not sit still?

Here's the breakdown from last night it was alot in it's three hour stint and was hosted by Dennis Miller.
Chris Jericho and Big Show won a slammy for tag team, then they challenged DX for their rematch via the claus when this match began Triple H deliberatly knocked over the ref which ended the match and had Jericho escorted from RAW. Since it was a disqualification the Big Show and Jericho won but not the titles, so technically there will be no rematch for the gold at the moment.
To determine Superstar of the year four men battled in various matches for this. First it was CM Punk versus John Cena which ended very easily with Cena winning via a countout. Then it was Undertaker versus Randy Orton. Orton who wasn't fairing well against the deadman had his henchmen more commonly known as Legacy beat down the Undertaker outside the ring while Orton managed to climb in the ring before a countout ended.
Then Cena and Orton battled, the battle of all battles and it was alot of wear down on both men. Cena swore he wouldn't loose til he had the belt back. Cena defeated Orton. As Cena caught his breath, new WWE Champion Sheamus stared him down from outside the ring.
William Regal and his round table called out Christian to pick two men to try to defeat them if there were any. Christian not in the best of health called on two men who put aside their differences for one night to destroy the round table. Kane and The Great Khali. The matched ended by pinfall and Christian's team was victorious. Which led to finding out that Kane would be gracing ECW tonight.
Sheamus won a slammy for breakout star of the year. He came out happy he won. Made a speech about how now Cena will have to take him seriously. (On a side note, how come it is that Sheamus is getting the push when people like Lance Archer, Evan Bourne, Jack Swagger, seem like they are low in arena so to speak. What makes Sheamus so great? Anyone dare to answer this call out go right ahead.)
Next match was Kofi Kingston versus Cody Rhodes which quickly turned into Legacy beating on Kingston which made Bourne jump in to make it a fair fight. Per stipulation by the GM Miller, the match got turned into a tag team match. Legacy won by pinfall to Bourne.
CM Punk got a slammy for Shocker of the Year by retiring Jeff Hardy. CM Punk ws very happy and stated CM Punk described retiring Jeff Hardy after their Steel Cage Match on SmackDown as his finest moment.
Shawn Michaels won the Slammy Award for Match of the Year. The match was him versus Undertaker at Wrestlemania, to which he challenged Undertaker for this wrestlemania. It was a great call out.
Bob Barker won for guest host of the year. He thanked them via televiewer.
Most Extreme Moment of the Year was awarded to Jeff Hardy when he stood 20 feet tall and delivered a swanton bomb to CM Punk at Summer Slam. Accepting on behalf was Matt Hardy who got a beat down by Carlito who started an acceptance speech like he won and Masters then put him in the Master lock and when Carlito was flung Masters grabbed the slammy and gave it back to Hardy asking if he was ok.
McIntyre joined United States Champion The Miz & Zack Ryder against Morrison, Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu. While the championships were on one side, determination tipped the balance as Tatsu leveled Ryder for the victory.
Mickie James won a 7 on 7 Diva match, while the girls were all dolled up in evening wear, they had a fight where it was Mickie James against Rosa. Mickie James was quick to get the pinfall on Rosa. Which sent the loosing team about to leave when Golddust and MVP came out to announce the Diva of the year who was non other than Maria who was very shocked and happy.
She was interrupted by Batista who wanted to announce the slammy for screw of the year, him last night by Long at the pay per view. He was escorted out by security.
Next up was "Oh my" moment of the year. If you didn't know who Cole was prior to this you will definitely know him now. Michael Cole vomiting on Chris Jericho at SmackDown’s 10th Anniversary took home the Slammy Award for “Oh My” Moment of the Year.
It was announced that next week Johnny Damon will attempt to knock it out of the park next week when he stops by Raw to serve as special guest host.
Sunday, December 13, 2009
I got TLC through the webcast. So here we go
Christian versus Shelton Benjamin. The winner was Christian.
Drew McIntyre versus John Morrison. The winner was Drew McIntyre new intercontinental champion.
Mickie James versus Michelle McCool. The winner was Michelle McCool.
Sheamus versus John Cena. The winner was Sheamus, he is the new WWE Champion. (ya ya I know I know let's all go yea Sheamus...uh how about no)
Batista versus Undertaker. The winner was Batista. He is the new world heavyweight champion. Teddy Long interrupts this victory. But that a cheap move by Batista didn't win him the match and the match is restarted. Undertaker won the match.
Kofi Kingston versus Randy Orton. The winner was Randy Orton.
Big Show and Chris Jericho versus Degeneration X. The winner was DX. Good job boys!
Don't forget Monday Night Raw begins at 8 due to the slammy awards.
Friday, December 11, 2009
iTunes Canada had it for download late again. Dude, this is killing me.
Kevin Nash was running the show. Interesting idea. Um... So he came to the ring with Eric Young. I'm listening to this line up of matches that Nash has in store for the night and I am rolling my eyes at it. Dude, I know the holidays are here, and you want to end the year's wrestling season on a fun light note, but I can see nothing good coming of this line up. I mean putting Eric Young in a match for his Global Belt against a Knock Out? Haven't we gone through that craziness enough with the whole Deaner having the Knock Out title storyline.
The recap of the news heard around the world, Jan 4th 2010 will have a 3 hour special that will be starting the Monday Night Wars. All the fans are a buzz with it, we at Blind Tag Blog had a small note on it this past week as well.
Lashleys vs Steiner/Kong in a mixed tag match. there's a shocker for ya. Steiner and Lashley started. Lashley slammed Steiner in the middle of the ring. Then Steiner ducked out of the ring before landing a few chops across Lashley's chest. Lashley turned it around by giving him a shoulder breaker then a suplex. Lashley went for an off the ropes move but Kong grabbed his legs knocking him to the mat. Kong kept trying to get tagged in but Steiner just ended up giving Lashley a closeline. Lashley turned it around again giving Steiner a tbone suplex. Crystal tagged herself in and got a scoop slam by Kong before Steiner covered her for a lazy pin. Kong was not happy.
Eric Young's promo was good. He just needs to stay away from the self tanner. Looking a little on the orange side there bud. You're Canadian, you should be pale and chalk white. Okay, now you know I have a rule about not writing about the women's division. But, since there was already one mixed match, and this for whatever reason happened .... Eric Young went up against Hamada in an intergender match. This is one of the only women wrestlers I ever bother to watch. This started with a collar tie up as Eric Young pushed her into the corner. Hamada got out of it and gave him a stiff spin kick to the jaw knocking him out of the ring. She followed it up with a series of head butts and chops to him. Getting back into the ring, Young turned it in his favour with a boot to the face. Hamada used a snap hurricanrana for a near fall. She then slammed him like he was a feather. Rolling out of the way of a moonsault, Young used the ropes for a pin... I mean I saw nothing but the win.
Team 3D/Rhino/Jesse Neal vs Suicide/Matt Morgan/Hernandez .... and Jesse Neal stole the Pope's trenchcoat. Dude, that was the trenchcoat I was waiting for someone to snag for me.... in a handy cap match. Rhino and Morgan started this. And right off, Morgan had Rhino in the corner for his series of elbows. Quick tag in by Brother Devon who got floored by another series of elbows and forearms by Morgan. Suicide tagged as did Brother Ray, in with an attempt on an arm drag. Suicide landed two deep hip tosses then a drop kick on Brother Ray. He was going for another top rope move but got pushed off onto the floor by Neal. He got back into the ring and went right into a boot from Brother Ray. Neal tagged in with a series of fists to the gut of Suicide. Rhino tagged in goring Suicide in the corner. Hernandez tagged in with a flying shoulder for Neal. He got a near fall with a very hard slam before everyone started to run into the ring causing chaos. Neal gored Hernandez for the win.
It was good to see Jay Lethal back again, even if it was only for a minute. But dude, the moo-moo has to go. Seriously.
A.J. Styles vs Wolfe in an "I paid for a title shot" match. Styles pushed Wolfe into the corner, as Wolfe hung onto the ropes. Wolfe then slapped a full nelson on Styles. He then turned it into a wristlock. He managed to keep this hold on Styles even as Styles got him up into a slam. This went on for a few minutes before Styles landed one of his double drop kicks on Wolfe. He went back to work on Styles' arm, adding a semi-bulldog sending Styles face first to the mat. Styles managed to get it back around to his favour with a backbreaker then his trademark spring board flying closeline. Wolfe then got him with a low blow but Styles got the roll up for the win.
And the MotorCityMachine Guns! Chris Sabin in a singles match against all three members of British Invasion. Yeah it was a handy cap match. And banned Alex Shelley from ring side. I am going through withdrawls you realize that right? Doug Williams started this, getting Sabin in a wristlock. Sabin got out of it, and did a beauty of a leap frog over Williams. Sabin got thrown into the ropes, where Brutus kneed him in the back, but Sabin turned around and used a baseball slide to knock Brutus off the ring apron. And tossed Williams out of the ring. Then Big Rob the Useless got in and closedlined Sabin. Is Sabin okay? Doug Williams got back into the ring with a knee to Sabin's jaw and a forearm. The crowd chanting this sucks. Brutus tagged in, first legal tag of the match, and they double teamed Sabin with a cross necktie. Williams tagged right back in, with a boot to the face for Sabin. Dude is Sabin okay? Another quick tag as Big Rob the Useless got into the ring dragging Sabin around by the shaggy mess he calls a hair do. (our Hair Gel King knows I love him.) the crowd screaming you can't wrestle. For once I agree with the crowd Big Useless can not wrestle. He slammed Sabin from a near 7 foot drop. Is Sabin okay? I forgot, Sabin is part monkey and was able to get up and shake it off before attacking Big Useless with a flying forearm then a boot to the face. All three of the Brits were now in the ring, Sabin going to the top rope for a double drop kick on Brutus and Williams. Somehow Sabin managed to get a tornado in the corner on Big Useless Rob Terry for the win. The moved sort of looked like a sideways version of Alex Shelley's sliced bread. then Alex Shelley came down the ramp to collect what was left of Sabin.
Tuesday, December 8, 2009
Next up was Archer versus Tommy Dreamer. Which was very action filled and allowed us to see someone dominate Archer for a change. Archer won the match through alot of work.
Then you see the masked face of Burchill in Tiffany's office, Where she told them in front of Greggory Helmes that next week they could try and earn a contract if they could beat The Hurricane. To which the masked man said I can't wait to see you to Helmes to which Helmes said you won't see me you'll be seeing the hurricane.
Last match of the night was the round table (Regal, Kozlov, and Jackson) versus Tatsu, Christian and Benjamin. Christian begins with match fighting Jackson. To which Jackson tagged in Regal. And Christian tagged in Tatsu. Alot of multiple tags in the match. The teams of Tatsu, Christian and Benjamin do their best to keep the opponents from tagging each other in. Benjamin in a lot of pain dealing with the round table. Benjamin trying to regain himself to get a tag to his team mates. Benjamin is being beat down by Team Regal. Making it impossible for him to get a tag in. Finally able to tag in Tatsu. Kozlov is leaving the arena. Jackson chases after him and beats on him. Then Regal tries to get in the way to keep them from fighting. Christian, Shelton Benjamin, and Roshi Tatsu won the match due to a count out. Christian pulls out a ladder into the ring. He is proceeding to climb the ladder. Benjamin jumped the ladder and it closes with them fighting over the title.

Instead he will be fighting Kingston tonight and on Sunday.
Next starts the match between Legacy and Evan Bourne and Primo.

Hownswaggle is trying to get Shawn's hat off the tree. He jumps them knocking the tree and DX over and stealing the hat and is off again.
Next match is Kofi Kingston versus Randy Orton with special guest referee Marc Cuban. Marc Cuban refused to be intimidated by Orton. One on one as it should be. Kofi Kingston already sending a message to Orton that he can't beat Kingston. Orton trying his best to beat Kingston. Orton beating down Kingston.

Big Show picked up the ladder and swung it at both Michaels and Triple H then stuck them inside the ladder and wacked the ladder with a chair.
Next will be the confrontation between Sheamus versus Cena for a mouth off. With a podium in the ring. Cuban is talking about them and announcing them. Sheamus comes out and stands but his chair, and out comes John Cena. Cuban will ask three questions. So here we go
1. Why do you feel you win this Sunday (Sheamus) He talks about when Cena came in the wwe took him 3 years for the title. And how Sheamus will do it faster. Next Cena answers no comment.
2. Are you either of you concerned with using a table this sunday? Sheamus says Cena isn't concerned enough. He calls Cena dumb. If he thinks he can rematch on Monday when he looses. Sheamus says Cena will loose everything his health, his state of mind and his title. Cena looks at Sheamus and replieds "no comment"
Cena demurred, finally asking his opponent whether he believes what he’s saying.
The question upset Sheamus. He appeared ready to leave the ring, but instead he attacked Cuban and took a cheap shot at the Cena. When Cena came to, Sheamus kicked him in the skull . That’s when Sheamus went all crazy on Cuban, slamming the host through a table!

Both women then went for a short arm closeline knocking each other to the mat. Mickie meanwhile got back into the ring only to have a surfboard on her by Natalya. Beth then grabbed Mickie putting her on her shoulders for something but Natalya landed a drop kick to Beth that sent both Beth and Mickie to the mat. Mickie got the pin for the win.
Mickie now goes to the ppv to face McCool for the belt.
Fourth match was John Morrison vs Drew McIntyre. Morrison got McIntyre down with a sweep to the legs then used a standing shooting starpress for a near fall. McIntyre got out and began to stomp on him. Morrison used a reversed paylay before getting shot out of the ring. Both men were down outside the ring. McIntyre tossed Morrison back in for a near fall then slapped on a submission hold. Morrison somehow got out of it but McIntyre got a half camel clutch on. Morrison turned it around and used a simple mule kick then a running knee for another near fall. He then tried a springboard kick but McIntyre kicked him causing a fall. Morrison then managed to get the upperhand once more with a series of stiff punches and a drop kick that sent McIntyre outside of the ring.

Final match of the night was suppose to have been Batista vs Undertaker. But Batista used a steel chair on Undertaker as he was walking up the ramp, then slammed him into the steps. He threw Undertaker into the ring and continued to use a chair where upon he power bombed him. This match never really happened as there was no ref nor was the bell ever rang.
Friday, December 4, 2009
Had to wait for it to be available on Spike TV official website. As there is something wrong today with iTunes Canada.
We opened with Wolfe in the ring. Talking about the fact he tapped out at the last ppv. And side note, Wolfe that was gross. Took a minute to realize he was inside a Six Sides of Steel cage, because the picture on there is so dark. Kurt Angle came down to the ring, but Wolfe had locked himself inside. Angle climbed in and what I don't understand is why did Wolfe not climb out?
The TNA shop.com commercial was cute, with the idea that everything you want from TNA you can get for Christmas. But I really don't see how Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin would fit under my tree.
Pope and Suicide's promo did not come across as very thought out. Sorry boys tray again.
Homicide vs Suicide. Okay I have to say cliche much. Suicide slapped a side headlock on Homicide, turning it into a takedown. Homicide got out of it for a second but Suicide slapped another on him keeping him to the mat. Homicide turned it around again knocking Suicide down with a hard shoulder slam, then continued to work on Suicide's shoulder. Homicide got him up in what was starting to look like a piledriver, but it seemed like he lost his grip and dropped him on the wrong part of his neck. Suicide some how got up and gave Homicide a kick to the face followed by a drop kick. Suicide got the win with a backslide.
Jesse Neal vs the Pope. Damn it I still want that trenchcoat. This started with a collar tie up and led to Neal kneeing Pope in the gut. Pope was going for a top rope move but Neal gored him nearly 5 feet before he fell off the ring apron landing on the floor. Neal then got a near fall. Pope turned it around with a series of chops before Neal got him up for a reversed shoulder breaker. Pope got the win though with a double knee plant to the back.
World Elite's Eric Young/Kevin Nash vs Beer Money Inc. Young and Storm started. Storm got a vicious looking closeline on Young knocking him down. Roode tagged in, and they double teamed Young for a bit, dropping knees and elbows. Roode got a large slam on Young. Nash tagged in with a large fist to Roode's gut. Storm jumped in and just started to wail on Nash. They took this to the floor and it was everyone everywhere. Young and Roode got back into the ring and Young nailed him with a knee/elbow combo. Nash tagged back in using a series of knees on Roode. Young tagged back in getting a near fall before Roode kicked out. Storm tagged in with a few forearms to Young's skull before using a backbreaker on him for a near fall. Young got the win with a piledriver.
Daniels promo was odd. He went against Abyss. Daniels started off mocking Abyss. This was the joke/jobber match of the night right? Daniels got a side headlock on Abyss but it was turned into a slam. Daniels ran around the ring but ended up with a boot to the chest. Daniels used a distraction to get a roll up on Abyss for the win.
Kurt Angle vs Raven/Dr. Stevie in a handy cap match. Angle was cornered by both men before Stevie managed to get Angle on the ropes. Raven used a boot to the throat, before Angle rolled out of the ring. Raven and Stevie double teamed him by tossing him into the guard rail. Stevie got two near falls. Then gored Angle in the corner. Angle then used a double closeline knocking both men down. He then used a series of suplexes on them sending Stevie out of the ring. Angle slapped the ankle lock on Raven for the win.
And the MotorCityMachine Guns! Alex Shelley vs World Elite's Doug Williams in a singles match. Mr. Shelley gets sexier every week doesn't he? The ref sent Brutus Magnus to the back and was about to send Chris Sabin when Brutus knocked Sabin to the floor. And the match started. Williams blindsided Shelley with an elbow but Shelley managed to turn it around with a second rope spring board that landed a wicked kick to William's skull. Williams rolled out of the ring, but Shelley went for a suicide dive planting it perfectly into his chest, Shelley landing on his feet. Nice. And then we got a close up of Shelley's butt, thank you cameraman. Williams rolled back into the ring and Shelley went straight for a top rope cross body for a near fall. Williams then got Shelley up in a move I think they called the TorriSpecial, which was pretty much a low reversed widow's peak and planted him onto the top turnbuckle. Williams then got Shelley in a side surfboard that looked like it really craned Shelley's neck. Shelley flipped out and got a near fall, but Williams once again worked on his back with a backbreaker. Shelley got out, but Williams strung him up in the corner with a hard kick to the innerworkings. It only slowed Shelley down for a few seconds before he came back with a series of kicks for another near fall. Williams managed to get out of it and climb to the top rope for a back elbow knocking Shelley down. Shelley got the win with his trademark Sliced Bread. Beauty.

One of the biggest names in JCW, the Necro Butcher made the crossover from Indie wrestling to mainstream with his recent role in the movie the "Wrestler".
In the late 1990's, he worked the Texas circuit as "Private Dylan Summers" but changed his name shortly after that to Necro Butcher, where he won his first hardcore belt for IHW HARDCORE. He also worked for TCW, IWA-MIDSOUTH, (where he won the belt in 2007) COMBAT ZONE WRESTLING (CZW), FULL IMPACT PRO (FIP) and RING OF HONOR (ROH).
Some of his titles include : CTPW Tag Team Championship, CWA Hardcore Championship, JCW Tag Team Championship, among others.
Necro Butcher was also awarded Wrestling Observer Newsletter's 2008 Best Brawler award.
He's most known to Insane Clown Posse fans as one half of the Juggalo Championshit Wrestling tag team which he held with Mad Man Pondo.
He is one of the kings of hardcore style wrestling, with a gimmick of being a "little rough around the edges". The members of the ICP who do announcing for JCW's Slam TV, always seemed to draw attention to the look Necro Butcher had with references to the fact he wrestled shoeless and the wildness of his beard.
