Tenay thanked the fans for eight years of support, and Taz thanked the "pioneers" of TNA, naming many who are still with the company like AJ Styles, James Storm, Chris Sabin, Abyss, Bob Ryder and Don West, and also thanked Jerry Lynn, who is no longer with TNA. Tenay mentioned that Jeff Jarrett, the founder of TNA, had to watch the show from home tonight.

    They reviewed the X-Factors for the next bout.

    Williams went for a wristlock at the start, which Kendrick escaped. They went to a double knucklelock, then Kendrick grabbed a Fujiwara armbar, but Williams grabbed the ropes.

    The announcers noted how Williams used a move off the ropes, something he always criticizes others for doing, to get the win.

    Backstage, Christy Hemme interviewed Eric Bischoff about Sting's recent comments. Bischoff essentially said he had no idea what Sting was talking about, and that after tonight, he hoped Sting would be out of their hair.

    Knockouts Champion Madison Rayne vs. Roxxi

    Rayne came out alone, without the rest of the Beautiful People. Madison Rayne got on the mic before the bell, and said she wanted Roxxi to explain how she could "pop in and out of the company whenever she felt like it" while the Beautiful People were dominating. Rayne said this time she "popped in and was handed a title shot". Rayne said she is putting everything on the line tonight, while Roxxi is putting up nothing. Rayne said Roxxi should put up the same thing that Tara did, her career. Rayne badgered her into agreeing, and just as she did, Rayne hit her in the head with the microphone.

    Rayne called for the bell and covered Roxxi, but she kicked out at two. Roxxi was busted open from the microphone shot. Roxxi hit some shots, but was knocked to the floor by Rayne. Roxxi was quickly becoming a bloody mess. Roxxi got on the apron and shoulderblocked Rayne, then rammed her into the turnbuckles.

As Roxxi was getting back in, Rayne kicked her and hit her neckbreaker on the knee for the win at the five minute mark.

    Winner: Madison Rayne.

    Madison waved goodbye to Roxxi, and yelled for her to get out of here. Roxxi, a bloody mess, looked despondent, then waved to the crowd and left.

    Brother Ray vs. Jesse Neal.

    Before the match could start, Brother Ray said he wanted Devon to come out. As Devon did, Shannon Moore ran out, thinking it might be a set up. Brother Ray apologized to Neal, saying that Shannon was right, he has been a bully lately. Ray said that Devon has talked a lot of sense into him, and continued to apologize. Ray said Neal was a hero in the Navy, and he was wrong to call him a failure. Moore left at this point. Brother Ray offered Neal a handshake, then gave him a hug. Devon and Brother Ray raised Neal's arms, then the three of them left the ring. They were halfway up the aisle when Brother Ray nailed Jesse, then flung him into the ring.

    The bell rang, and an angry Devon was rushing back to the ring, but security stopped him and the referee, at Brother Ray's request, ordered him away, since the match had officially started. Brother Ray kicked Neal. Moore was watching from the stage. Devon yelled "This isn't over" as security walked him off. Ray dropped some elbows on Neal, then ripped off Neal's shirt and chopped his chest. Brother Ray just mauled Neal, hanging him in the Tree Of Woe and slapping him. Ray pulled Neal off the ropes with a neckbreaker. Brother Ray ripped the dog tags off Neal, said "Your best friend's dog tags? Ha!" and chopped Neal on the chest. Neal fired back with some shots, building momentum. Ray reversed a whip, but Neal jumped on the ropes and hit a flying bodypress, then slammed Ray with a belly to belly suplex. Brother Ray avoided a punch and hit a Bubba Bomb full-nelson slam, then chopped him in the back.

    Tommy Dreamer, to a huge ovation, started walking down the steps in the stands. Brother Ray was on the middle rope, then stopped and stared at Dreamer, who did his crucifix pose. There was an "ECW" chant. Dreamer moved into the crowd, and posed again. Jesse Neal charged Brother Ray, who kicked him down. Brother Ray went for the second rope senton, but Neal moved out of the way. Neal hit Brother Ray with the spear for the pin at the four minute mark.

    Winner: Jesse Neal.

    Dreamer exited the crowd, a smile on his face. Ray was dumbfounded in the ring. Ray argued with the crowd as he left.

    Hernandez was interviewed about Matt Morgan, saying he watched while Morgan treated him, the tag titles, and the whole tag division as a joke. Hernandez said he got a taste of Morgan at Impact, and tonight he would get the whole meal. They then aired a video package on Morgan-Hernandez.

    Matt Morgan vs. Hernandez.

    Morgan came out in street clothes, wearing a neckbrace. Morgan came out and gave an "emotional" promo about how he could not perform on the PPV tonight. Morgan claimed Hernandez "jumped him from behind" and injured his neck. Morgan told the referee that he had a signed note from his physician that he could not perform. Morgan apologized to the fans that he could not perform, then walked off. Hernandez ran out and jumped Morgan from behind, ripping his neckbrace off and tossing him into the ring.

    The referee rang the bell, so I guess we have a match after all. Hernandez choked Morgan with his t-shirt. You know, that can get you fired in some places. Hernandez choked Morgan in a corner. Sorry, couldn't resist. The referee broke them up. Hernandez picked up the referee and sat him in the top rope. Morgan begged for mercy, then tripped Hernandez out of the ring. On the floor, Morgan hit a discus lariat. Back in the ring, Morgan threw Hernandez shoulder first into the ringpost, then did it a second time. A third time, and Morgan tossed Hernandez to the floor. Morgan seemed content to take a countout victory, and mockingly acted like his neck was hurt. Hernandez rolled in at eight, and Morgan stomped him. Morgan hit back elbows in the corner, then an avalanche.

    Morgan hit a sideslam for a two count. Hernandez reversed a whip and hit a avalanche, then a shoulderblock. Hernandez ripped Morgan's shirt off him and choked him with it. The referee broke it up, but Hernandez went back to choking him again. Hernandez grabbed the referee and tossed him to the mat. The referee disqualified Hernandez at the five minute mark.

    Winner via disqualification: Matt Morgan.

    Hernandez went after Morgan, who was trying to exit, and rammed him back first into the ringpost. Hernandez put Morgan's head against the ringpost, and went to kick him, the same thing Morgan did to Hernandez to injure him. As Hernandez went for the kick, Morgan pulled referee Brian Hebner in the path, and Hebner got kicked in the ribs. Morgan escaped, and Hernandez soon went after him, while Earl Hebner (Brian's Dad) and the other referees checked on Brian Hebner.

    Christy Hemme interviewed Hulk Hogan about Sting. Hogan said Sting "crossed the line" and broke the "unwritten code" amongst wrestlers when he injured Jeff Jarrett the way he did. Hogan said he would have his eye on Sting.

    Abyss vs. Desmond Wolfe in a Monster's Ball match.

    Wolfe was accompanied by Chelsea, since her 30-days with Abyss are now over. Abyss started tossing weapons in the ring as soon as he came out. They went right at it, with Wolfe missing with a kendo stick shot and Abyss hitting a boot to the face. Abyss went for a chair, but Wolfe kicked it in his face. Wolfe wedged the chair in a corner, then hit Abyss in the gut with a kendo stick. Abyss reversed a whip and Wolfe went for a leapfrog, but Abyss caught it and hit a side slam for a two count.

    Abyss went under the ring and pulled out a barbed wire board, tossing it into the ring. Abyss put it in a corner, but Wolfe hit Abyss with some forearms. Wolfe went to whip Abyss into the chair in a corner, but Abyss put on the brakes. Wolfe chargeed, Abyss moved and Wolfe went head first into the chair. Abyss went and got two trash cans. As Abyss was getting in the ring, Wolfe kicked the middle rope into Abyss' groin. Wolfe hit Abyss with a pair of trash can shots. Wolfe yelled something to Chelsea, that you couldn't make up.

    Wolfe went into a trash can, and pulled out a teddy bear wrapped in barbed wire. Wolfe asked out loud if this was some kind of joke. Abyss bodyblocked Wolfe, driving the barbed wire teddy bear into Wolfe's midsection. I should note, Wolfe still has his shirt on. Abyss went to ringside and presented the barbed wire bear to Chelsea, then sort of barked at her. Abyss pulled out a bag and got back in the ring. Abyss emptied the bag, which was filled with broken glass, in the ring. Wolfe said "I didn't sign up for this" and left. Abyss followed, and Wolfe used Chelsea as a shield. Wolfe grabbed a kendo stick and hit Abyss as he was distracted by Chelsea.

    Wolfe pulled Abyss over the the staging area, then up on a platform. Wolfe held up the stick and said "Now he dies!" buy Abyss grabbed Wolfe by the throat and chokeslammed him, breaking up part of the platform when he landed. Wolfe was convulsing. Abyss dragged Wolfe to the ring and covered him, but Wolfe got his foot on the bottom rope at the two count. Abyss put the barbed wire board in the ring, and set up Wolfe for a superplex. Wolfe fought out of it, then used a sunset flip-style powerbomb off the top rope to sent Abyss into the barbed wire board. Abyss' arm was sliced open. Wolfe got a two count.

    Wolfe grabbed a kendo stick and hit Abyss in the head twice, but missed on the third try. Abyss grabbed Wolfe and hit the Shock Treatment backbreaker for a two count. Abyss picked up Wolfe off the mat, but Wolfe hit a knee to the midsection. Wolfe hit Abyss with a kendo stick shot to the back of the head, and Abyss fell down, face first, into the broken glass. Abyss was bleeding from the head. Wolfe still couldn't put Abyss away. Wolfe told Chelsea to give him her purse. Chelsea reluctantly gave it to Wolfe. Wolfe opened the purse, but the brass knuckles weren't in it. Wolfe asked where the knucks were, and Chelsea had them in her hand. She then tossed the knucks over Wolfe, to Abyss. Abyss hit Wolfe with the knucks, then finished off Wolfe with a Black Hole Slam for the pin at the 12-minute mark.

    Winner: Abyss.

    Chelsea was expressionless at ringside. In the ring, Abyss was tasting his own blood. Abyss saluted the fans and celebrated his win. Chelsea backed down the ramp along, still holding the teddy bear. Wolfe, who rolled to the floor, was complaining about Chelsea costing him the match.

    Rob Van Dam was interviewed, saying he wasn't going to let Sting play mind games with him, but what Sting did with the belt on Impact did bother him. RVD said he doesn't care about Sting's agenda, he cares about his own. Van Dam said he is at his best, and that it was "Showtime.... the Whole F'N Showtime".

    A video package on Styles-Lethal was shown.

    AJ Styles vs. Jay Lethal.

    Ric Flair accompanied Styles to the ring. Lethal kept glancing at Flair at ringside as the bell rang. They locked up, and jockeyed for position. AJ backed Lethal in a corner and chopped him. Lethal responded with a slap, and Styles tripped over his own feet. Styles went to the floor and regrouped. They locked up again, and Styles grabbed a side headlock, taking Lethal to the mat.

Styles dropkicked Lethal in the leg, but Lethal fought back with punches and a chop. Styles slid under Lethal and hit a chop. Lethal went for a monkeyflip, but Styles landed on his feet. Styles hiptossed Lethal, who reversed it and hit one, then dropkicked Styles in the face. Lethal hit a snap suplex for a one count.

    Styles punched Lethal in the gut, but Lethal hit a series of punches, then chopped Styles. Lethal rammed Styles in a corner, then hit a side backbreaker for a one count. Lethal hit a spinning headscissors, sending Styles to the floor. They did a nice spot where each teased a dive, then stopped themselves when the other moved out of the way, ending with Lethal tripping Styles on the ring apron, and Styles bumped to the floor. Back in the ring, Styles choked Lethal, but missed a chop. Lethal hit a chop, but Styles tossed Lethal crotch first on the top rope and he attempted a leapfrog.

Styles kicked at Lethal's leg, then hit a brainbuster for a two count. Styles went for a Styles Clash, but Lethal rolled under it and gave AJ a released Dragon Suplex. Flair pulled Styles towards the ropes to break up the cover.

    Lethal grabbed Styles by the legs, and despite Flair's protests, put Styles in a Figure Four leglock. Styles managed to make the ropes. Lethal gave Styles a backbreaker, then went to the top rope but missed the elbow smash. Styles hit the Pele Kick, then went to climb the ropes, but his knee gave out under him, the result of the figure four. Styles tried to jump up to the middle rope, but his knee buckled as he did so. Styles jumped off the middle rope, but Lethal caught him and delivered a Northern Lights suplex for the pin at the 18-minute mark.

    Winner: Jay Lethal.

    Lethal celebrated with the fans at ringside, giving out a "Whoo!" Flair yelled at Styles for losing, while Styles pointed at his knee. Kazarian came down, and looked to calm down Flair. Styles said "I'm sorry" and was sitting in the corner, as Flair and Kazarian left together.

    Sting did an interview, saying he would take the World Title from the "pawn" Rob Van Dam. Sting said 'some want to rule the world, some want to make it a better place, and some just want to watch it burn'. Sting asked who everyone thought he was.

    Mr. Anderson and Jeff Hardy did an interview, trying to come up with a name for their team. They decided on "The Enigmatic A**holes."

    Anderson and Roode started out, with the fans chanting "Let's go A**holes." Roode tripped Anderson to the mat and tagged in Storm, who grabbed a front facelock.

    They hyped the main event.

    World Champion Rob Van Dam vs. Sting.

    The cameras followed both men for their whole entrance, with Sting starting in the bleachers, and Van Dam (who had a singlet painted like Iron Man) starting in the back. Jeremy Borash did the "big match introductions" for the bout. They locked up at the start, with Sting putting Van Dam in a corner and kicking him. They went right to the rampway, then Sting dragged Van Dam to the floor. They went over the guard rail and into the crowd. Sting told the referee "I've got business to take care of" as he tried to whip Van Dam into the wall. Van Dam stopped it, kicked Sting, and threw him into the wall repeatedly. Van Dam punched Sting, who was leaning over the guard rail. Van Dam jumped off the guard rail and legdropped Sting in the back of the head.

    Van Dam battered Sting around ringside, then Sting backdropped Van Dam over the rail. Sting threw Van Dam into the wall a few times.

Sting muscled Van Dam into a corner and pounded Van Dam. Somehow Earl Hebner caught a shot in the eye and was stumbling around. Van Dam went to the top rope off a Sting whip and dove into a bodypress, but Sting moved and Van Dam slammed into Hebner. Sting picked up his baseball bat and hit Van Dam in the gut, then the face, then the leg. Hebner was down and didn't see any of this.

    Jeff Jarrett walked down to the ring and snatched the bat away from Sting. Jarrett hit Sting in the gut with it, then in the jaw. Jarrett gave RVD a thumb's up, then walked off, keeping the bat with him. RVD hit Sting with a Rolling Thunder backsplash. Hebner crawled over for the count, but Sting got his shoulder up at two. RVD missed a monkey flip attempt in the corner. Sting missed a Stinger Splash, hitting the turnbuckles hard.

    Re: TNA Slammiversary VIII - Preview and Live Discussion ‎

    I'd like to hear what Hogan & Bischoff think about the King Of the Mountain concept. They could probably make the logical suggestion that it should just be a different variation of a regular ladder match, that being the belt already hanging but still with the penalty boxes, but I think maybe that's beyond them at this point.

    I can't believe there have been seven of these shows, I'd struggle to remember anything that's happened on any of them.


    ''What the fuck am I doing here?''

    Re: TNA Slammiversary VIII - Preview and Live Discussion ‎

    Any predictions for what the card will look like? Here's what I'm guessing at the minute - I put it in spoilers because it is a combination of a couple of guaranteed things with mostly my speculation. it doesn't give me much hope:

    Spoiler:

    Well, I'm almost sure that the main event will be Sting v RVD, potentially with a Sting win. I feel they'll give him a last run before he retires and, knowing TNA, there'll probably be some mad swerve. It was a dream all along!

    I'm guessing also that, due to Kazarian beating everyone again, it will be another Kaz v D. Williams X-Division bout. Just maybe, they might add someone else to alter things a little.

    That being said, there will be a KOTM match as tapings have started of the qualifying rounds for it. It could be for the TNA title or the X division one.

    Seeing as Chelsea is likely to fall for Abyss, or at least, start to see Desmond in a negative light (teased at by her acting as though Wolfe had gone too far on to-morrow's impact), there'll probably be another clunker between Abyss and Wolfe. Joy.

    There'll be a perfunctory knockouts match, but with A. Love and Daffney out, who knows who'll be in it.

    They'll probably throw in J. Hardy and Mr. Anderson into the pot, either against each other, or, growing more likely by the day, together. Then again, if they are turning Anderson face-ish, maybe it is Hardy who will turn heel by rejecting Anderson's friendship. G-d alone only knows.

    There'll likely be some old-style X division spotfest to compensate for most of the guys in it annoyingly having no shot at the championship.

    TT Championship: Well, the Motor City Machine Guns should be in the frame, either as number 1 contenders, or, preferably, as champions. I don't particularly want to see the Band lumbering through another

    Last and least, the Global Championship. You would hope that taking the title off Morgan and giving it to OJ would mean, at the very least, some different feuds for the belt. Something tells me that Morgan will be involved again though...

    Re: TNA Slammiversary VIII - Preview and Live Discussion ‎

    Havent seen spoilers (and dont want to) but this is what I'm guessing right now:

    World title
    KOTM
    RVD vs the top four contenders (Probably Hardy, Anderson, Styles and Angle)

    Tag titles
    The Band vs Machine Guns

    X title
    Williams vs Kazarian

    Other than that, I'm not really sure. Maybe Morgan vs Joe aswell as Ink Inc vs 3D.

    Shouldn't the poster on the side bar be spoilered too? Seems to be making it pretty obvious.

    You can find the poster on most sites, How often does WWE's PPV posters actually cover what's going to happen?

    That's a good point, I forgot about the poster on the sidebar. At least WWE's OTL poster is just Edge running.

    My predictions, spoilers removed:

    Well, I'm almost sure that the main event will be Sting v RVD, potentially with a Sting win. I feel they'll give him a last run before he retires and, knowing TNA at the minute, there'll probably be some mad swerve. It was a dream all along!

    I'm guessing also that it will be another Kaz v D. Williams X-Division bout. Just maybe, they might add someone else to alter things a little.

    One or the other, or maybe both, of these will be KOTM matches - I'm more inclined towards thinking that it will be the former.

    Seeing as Chelsea is likely to fall for Abyss, or at least, start to see Desmond in a negative light, there'll probably be another clunker between Abyss and Wolfe.

    There'll be a perfunctory knockouts match, but with A. Love and Daffney out, who knows who'll be in it.

    They'll probably throw in J. Hardy and Mr. Anderson into the pot, either against each other, or, growing more likely by the day, together. Then again, if they are turning Anderson face-ish, maybe it is Hardy who will turn heel by rejecting Anderson's friendship. G-d alone only knows. They might be put in the KOTM together with Sting, RVD and probably Angle.

    There'll likely be some old-style X division spotfest to compensate for most of the guys in it annoyingly having no shot at the championship.

    TT Championship: Well, the Motor City Machine Guns should be in the frame, either as number 1 contenders, or, preferably, as champions. I don't particularly want to see the Band lumbering through another title match.

    I'm really hoping they'll let Williams & Kaz really go it. Those are two guys with tons of talent, it should be a really good match as long as it isn't rushed.
    I wouldn't mind seeing a good old fashioned X spot fest, but as you pointed out. If such a match were to take place, nothing would come of it.
    You mean Rob Terry right? Matt Morgan isn't involved with the Global title right now, not that I'm aware of. I'm interested to see where they go with the whole OJ thing. Even though his gimmick isn't the greatest, he's starting to win me over on some of those promo's, and his in ring skills are more than decent.

    I agree about Williams and Kaz - I have been a big fan of the former ever since seeing him in ROH and in British promotions, and I'm pretty fond of the latter, who has shown that he is as diverse as they come.

    The only qualm I have is that the X Division is starting to look like a two-horse race, but their last match up was the most entertaining on the card in my view, and I can see a logical reason for a return match - I just hope that some of the other guys get a legitimate look-in too. I think that D. may drop the title though, which could lead to some interesting feuds and hopefully old-fashioned spot-fests that actually mean something.

    Yes, I mean Terry - don't know where I mixed them up, it must have been my head not functioning correctly. I'm not OJ's biggest fan, but I too want to see If they are going somewhere with this. I prefer him as champ to Terry - I just hope he gets some new feuds and that we don't see a repeat OJ v Terry at Slammiversary

    Re: TNA Slammiversary VIII - Preview and Live Discussion ‎

    For some reason, when Pope returns from his injury, I'd like to see him possibly feud with Oj for the legends title. I think those two not only would have some good matches, but very memorable promo's/verbal showdowns.
    Even if D drops the title which I too think he will at this point, I really hope they continue with him using the anti X division gimmick. His mic work is dead on each week, referring to himself as a true artist in the sport of professional wrestling. Making fun of others by comparing them to glorified circus performers, It's good stuff. I'd like to see something like each week he finds a new way to humiliate his opponents. Like he might apply an arm bar on his opponent, then while he has the move locked in he asks the ref to hand him a mic to say,"This ladies and gentlemen, in the world of professional wrestling, is known as an armbar submission maneuver!" He wouldn't have to be like a teacher or anything, but each week he could educate us with a new move while he dismantles and beats his opponents.

    I agree with you that an OJ/Pope feud could be amazing and practically writes itself - a returning Pope taking umbrage at OJ taking over his show. OJ would be greatly helped by having a good sparring partner, and it would ensure the Pope decent screen time and a sensible feud. A title feud between them for a couple of months could give something back to the belt as well as well as a potentially incendiary set of promos.

    I adore the Doug Williams idea so much.

    It doesnt look like KOTM will be on the card this year, unless they give it to the X-Division that is.

    That, actually doesn't sound that bad of an idea.

    Kendrick vs Williams sounds like it could be awesome.

    This card (spoilers included) does nothing for me. For one of their biggest shows of the year, TNA really have dropped the ball here.

    Updated card. It looks like a decent show, but it lacks really important matches worthy of being on the second biggest show of the year.

    Re: TNA Slammiversary VIII - Preview and Live Discussion ‎

    Weird card so far.

    I'll be looking forward to: Angle vs Kazarian: Hopefully this is a solid match and a sign of things to come - a big deal being made out of Angle's challenge, with most of the decisive matches taking place on PPV, and Impact being used to build the miniature feuds that emerge due to this shtick. It should be an interesting mix of styles and a high point to the night. Kendrick v D. Williams should also be a good, solid bout; not much build to it though!

    What I'm sort of looking forward to: Anderson/Hardy vs Beer Money. I don't get this curious alliance, so it'll be interesting to see a very unlikely tag team taking on one of TNA's most cohesive. Will we see the semi-face turn of Anderson swerved once again? Who knows.

    What I'm not really looking forward to: 'The Band' vs Matt Morgan & Someone Else. What on earth? The number 1 contenders were the MCMG, it seems a bit messed up of them to deprive them of their position on Slammiversary just for another chapter of this Morgan spiel. Though the Band should never have won in the first place; damn their little suitcase. Not looking forward to RVD v Sting either. He should never have been number 1 contender, as though he'd been winning big all year and was chummy with the guys he 'attacked.' Makes no sense whatsoever.

    Other thoughts: I wonder how they are going to use AJ, The Pope, and many others, if at all? What happened to the KOTM, surely its place is at this PPV over most others? Will OJ be defending his title (against Terry)? Will there be another pointless Abyss match, probably against the horrendously misused D. Wolfe?
