TNA Ray-View: Bound for Glory 2010 DVD

TNA Bound For Glory 2010 DVD: Out Now!

TNA Bound For Glory 2010 DVD: Out Now!

TNA’s flagship pay-per-view Bound For Glory promised a lot—a new world champion, RVD’s revenge on Abyss, the culmination of the EV2 and Fortune battle in Lethal Lockdown, Mickie James’ first PPV appearance and, of course, Abyss would finally reveal who “They” were.

I must admit i was quite excited to review this double-disc set from the moment it arrived. This was certainly TNA’s best PPV offering of 2010.

The event itself opens with a bang as Generation Me take on Motor City Machineguns for the Guns in a fast paced, high-flying bout for the World Tag Team Belts.

Up next, a four-way battle between Knockouts champion Angelina Love, her Beautiful People partner Velvet Sky, Tara and Madison Rayne. TNA’s newest, Knockout Mickie James, is also featured prominently and does well in the guest referee role.

A comedy Tag-Match follows next as the Oddball team of Orlando Jordan and Eric Young took on Ink Inc. Not the best of matches to be honest, but it is what it is, both teams did their jobs well in a fun bout. Read more of this post

Now They’re Here

By Richard Jennings

This week’s edition of Impact marked the real beginning of the Immortal/Fortune takeover storyline. This is evidenced by two events. First we had the return of the main woman herself, Dixie Carter, to TNA programming. Secondly we saw the start of the faces’ fight back with the main event being a match which had Matt Morgan, Doug Williams, Pope and Samoa Joe teaming up against Fortune. Although both of these events turned out – albeit for different reasons – to be somewhat anti-climatic, they both point to strength in the direction that TNA is going to take in the coming months.

There is a reason – turn, turn, turn

By Richard Jennings

It will not have escaped any regular viewer of TNA that inside the last month there have been four wrestlers turned. A month ago Matt Morgan turned face, betraying Fortune and gaining a title shot at Turning Point in the process. Two weeks ago we were treated to two swerves: first we saw Rhino betray EV2.0 and align himself with Immortal and then we witnessed Brother Ray bookending Team 3D’s current run by attacking Brother Devon. This week’s turn came in the form of Doug Williams’ attack on his own Fortune stablemates whilst they were trying to assist their leader. Read more of this post

Hope springs Immortal – reasons to be positive about “Them”

By Richard Jennings

When, to the surprise of almost no one whatsoever, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff were revealed to be “Them” at Bound For Glory it was obvious that TNA was going to be subjected to some significant criticism. Not only is the kernel of the story – top faces and authority figures taking over the company from the inside – far from original, but many of the personnel involved have already been in a celebrated incarnation of the storyline in the form of the nWo.

EV2 wrestler gone from TNA after Turning Point?

Sabu

Sabu

According to the PWTorch, Sabu has been told by TNA he won’t be used following the Turning Point PPV this Sunday.

Sabu is scheduled to be part of the Fortune vs. EV2 multiple-man tag match at the PPV. The match contains a stipulation that the winning team will “fire” a member of the other team in the storyline, but the fictional “firing” and Sabu’s release could be separate, especially with prior reports that Rhino is also set to finish up his TNA contract at Turning Point aswell.

Sabu re-joined TNA at the Hardcore Justice PPV in August and has worked select TV and PPV dates since then. Many of the “ECW wrestlers” who worked for TNA this summer were given an opportunity to remain on the roster.

TNA told Sabu they do not have creative plans for him beyond the Turning Point PPV. Friends say Sabu is disappointed he won’t be retained.

Last month at the Bound for Glory PPV, the original plan was to blow off the EV2 vs. Fortune feud. EV2 was booked to win the match, which extended the feud another month to the Turning Point PPV this Sunday.

Recap of Jeff Hardy on CBS talk show today

Jeff Hardy

Jeff Hardy

TNA World Hvt. champion Jeff Hardy appeared via a pre-recorded message on this afternoon’s edition of “The Talk” daytime talk show on CBS. Hardy invited a 10-year-old boy to the Impact Zone as his “personal guest.” I thought this was a pretty neat thing to do, and once again demonstrates the length that stars like Jeff and TNA Wrestling as a company will go, very touching.

Hardy’s message was part of a lengthy segment discussing bullying at school. The 10-year-old boy, Tyler Wilson, said he was bullied by kids at school when he tried out for the cheerleading team. Tyler had his arm in a sling after breaking his arm.

Hardy’s pre-recorded message included the TNA logo featured prominently. CBS producers also included footage of the Bound for Glory PPV where Hardy was booked to win the World Hvt. Title. For the message, Hardy sported his traditional facepaint and a purple dress t-shirt and tie. Read more of this post
