impact-wrestling-logo2

The road to Lockdown officially began on the Valentine’s Day edition of IMPACT Wrestling as GM Hulk Hogan announced that eight men would vie for a shot at World Champion Jeff Hardy next month…curiously enough they didn’t include Hogan’s own son in-law. Also on the show contestants from British Bootcamp made their TNA debut and a Knockouts Title match was made for next week.

[TNA News] Jeff Hardy Signs For Two More Years; More ‘IMPACT Wrestling’ Dates Announced

To keep the cross-pollination going between the two shows, TNA President Dixie Carter appeared on the MMA show Bellator to drop some news about TNA. First, and most important I’d argue, Carter announced that their World Champion Jeff Hardy has signed on for an additional two years locking him up and preventing him from making the jump to the WWE without having ever lost the title. A very smart move on TNA’s part to sign Hardy as he continues to be a license to print money for them, no matter how much some of us hope he loses the title soon (maybe now that the contract is signed…).

In addition to this big news, Carter also announced some new IMPACT Wrestling dates and locations. They are as follows:

  • March 28 in Jonesboro, Arkansas at the ASU Convocation Center
  • April 11 in Corpus Christi, Texas at the American Bank Center
  • June 6 in Duluth, Georgia at the Gwinnett Center

Two decent-sized news bites for Carter to break on Bellator and more importantly I’m glad the MMA fans now also get to suffer this forced co-promotion between the two.

[PPV Results] TNA Genesis 2013

Genesis-2013-Poster (Small)

Yesterday TNA held their first PPV of 2013, Genesis, live from the Impact Zone in Orlando, FL. Here are the complete results of the show, taken from TNA’s official website.

  1. Chavo Guerrero Jr. & Hernandez (c) defeated Joey Ryan & Matt Morgan to retain the TNA World Tag Team Titles when Guerrero pinned Ryan after a Frog Splash.
  2. Mr. Anderson pinned Samoa Joe after a Mic Check; Mike Knox (not named during the show) of the Aces and 8’s came out to distract Joe, giving Anderson the opening.
  3. Christian York pinned Kenny King in the finals of the X-Division Tournament; King immediately attacked York after the match which led into York’s X-Division title shot.
  4. Rob Van Dam (c) pinned Christian York to retain the TNA X-Division Title after a Five Star Frog Splash.
  5. Devon pinned Joseph Park; Park had an Abyss episode making it seem like he was going to win but snapped out before finishing Devon off, allowing the “Sgt. in Arms” to take advantage.
  6. Velvet Sky won the Knockouts Gauntlet to become the #1 Contender to the Knockouts Title, last eliminating Gail Kim; the other participants included Mickie James, Miss Tessmacher, and ODB. Kim’s foot was under the rope during Sky’s pin so there could be some issues stemming from that.
  7. Christopher Daniels (w/ Frankie Kazarian) pinned James Storm with his feet on the ropes to win a TNA World Title shot; Daniels will face the champion on the January 24th edition of IMPACT Wrestling.
  8. Sting pinned The Director of Chaos after the Scorpion Death Drop; The Aces and 8’s tried to attack Sting after, but Bully Ray came out and made the save. He and Brooke Hogan made an appearance before the match to hype up their upcoming wedding this Thursday on IMPACT Wrestling.
  9. Jeff Hardy (c) defeated Bobby Roode and Austin Aries in an “Elimination Rules Triple Threat” match to retain the TNA World Heavyweight Title; Aries pinned Roode to eliminate him first, and Hardy pinned Aries a few minutes after to secure the victory.
