TNA Impact Wrestling Results - 2/21/13 By TheCrow Feb 21, 2013 - 10:17:05 PM
Report by Stuart Carapola @ PWInsider.com
We start off with a series of clips from last week's show, then we head to London for one final evening in the UK. Hulk Hogan comes out to start the show and say he's got some tough choices to make, but things didn't pan out the way he thought they would because Aces & Eights screwed up his #1 contender decision. But it turned out to be a good thing, because it gave him an entire week to think about who the #1 contender should be, and he decided that the man who rose above everyone else and proved himself to be the man for the job is the new #1 contender, and that man is...Bully Ray. Bubba comes out of the back looking confused, and he doesn't know what to say and asks Hogan if he knows he's hurt after tearing his quad a couple of weeks ago, but Hogan says he's the toughest SOB in the company. Bubba thanks Hulk because there were so many guys fighting in the ring last night who deserve the shot more than he did, and all he ever wanted was Hulk's respect. Marrying Brooke was the greatest day of his life, and now he wants to make everyone happy by becoming the World Champion. Bubba says they've got bigger things to worry abouty now, so he suggests that tonight's main event ought to be a six man tag with Aces & Eights taking on Bubba, Sting, and...Hulk Hogan himself! Hogan says he's got a deal as Mike Tenay reminds us that we haven't seen Hulk in the ring since Bound For Glory 2011.
Bobby Roode and Austin Aries are backstage complaining about how Chavo and Hernandez screwed them up last week, but then Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian copme in to congratulate them for beating Chavo and Hernandez before they did. Daniels says he's the ring general and to follow his lead out there, but then Aries and Roode start arguing with each other over whose lead everyone should follow.
James Storm, Joseph Park, Chavo Guerrero Jr & Hernandez vs Bobby Roode, Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian
Fortune explodes! Daniels and Storm start us off, and Storm immediately gets the advantage and dumps Daniels to the floor. Roode sneaks in from behind and knocks Storm out to the floor, leading to a brawl between Daniels, Kazarian, Chavo, and Hernandez. Chavo and Hernandez whip Daniels and Kazarian into Park, and both bounce off of him and roll to the floor as we go to commercial.
We're back, and Kazarian is in trouble as he gets caught in the wrong corner and quadruple teamed. Kazarian tries a crossbody on Park and simply bounces off of him, but Daniels comes in and clips Park's knee so Kazarian can drag him to the heel corner for some of their own group exercises. Roode and Aries argue with each other while double teaming Park, but the heel team holds it together until Park takes Daniels and Kazarian out with a double clothesline. They try to tag Roode and Aries in, but the champions walk off and head to the back, leaving Daniels and Kazarian high and dry as Storm tags in and goes to town on both men. Chavo hits a frogsplash on Daniels and a spinning backbreaker on Kazarian, then Storm tags in and lays Kazarian out with the Last Call. Park tags in and hits the second rope splash on Kazarian for the win.
Winners: James Storm, Joseph Park, Hernandez & Chavo Guerrero Jr
Good match, but I think they could have had a real classic with another ten minutes or so.
We look back at last week when Robbie E was embarrassed by Rockstar Spud, then we're off to the ring for...RETRIBUTION.
Robbie E vs Rockstar Spud
Robbie jumps Spud before he's ready and yells bro stuff at him, but Spud baseball slides between Robbie's legs and hits a dropkick. Spud charges into Robbie's boot, Robbie goes to the second rope and comes off with an elbowsmash for 2. Spud catches Robbie unawares with a DDT and hits a series of clotheslines, then goes up top, throws the metal sign, and misses a top rope legdrop. Robbie tries to grab the clipboard from Robbie T, but T refuses to let it go. E spends so much time arguing with him that Spud is able to sneak in with a twisting victory roll for the win.
Winner: Rockstar Spud
Robbie E chews out T yet again after the match and makes the mistake of slapping T in the face. E doesn't seem to realize what he's done until T slowly turns back around, tears his shirt off, and E frantically backs his way through the ropes and hightails it up the ramp as T roars at him with a really angry look on his face.
Jesse is backstage giving Tara a pep talk as she prepares to defend the Knockouts Title...NEXT!
Knockouts Title Match: Tara vs Velvet Sky vs Brooke Tessmacher vs Gail Kim
And of course, Brooke Hogan and her crappy entrance music are at ringside to make sure nothing screwy happens. Yes, because she is obviously an expert at detecting subversive activity. We're at commercial.
Okay, we're back and it's elimination rules as Jesse is ejected from ringside. Tara hits an electric chair on Tessmacher as Brooke and Gail go at it, but Tara joins Gail in a 2-on-1 against Velvet. Tara hits a twisting side suplex on Velvet, but Gail breaks it up at 2 and she argues with Tara over who gets to beat Velvet. This progresses to a shoving match and then a slugfest that ends in Tara backdropping Gail into next week. Gail dodges a charge in the corner and gets yanked to the floor by Tessmacher, but Gail gets ahold of her and goes for an atomic crotch on the ringpost. Tessmacher kicks off the post and bulldogs Gail on the floor, then she joins Velvet in a double team on Tara. Tara gets knocked out to the apron and hangs Velvet up on the top rope, then rolls back in and drops Tessmacher's throat on the ropes as well. Tara goes for a moonsault on Tessmacher and connects, but she seems to hurt herself on the way down and Velvet hits her with In Your Face. Gail comes in and dumps Velvet to the floor and cradles Tara for 3.
Tara is eliminated.
So we're guaranteed a new champion tonight as Gail and Tessmacher battle on the top rope. Velvet comes over and grabs Gail in a powerbomb as Gail tries to suplex Tessmacher and it's the Tower of Doom! Velvet covers Gail for 2, then covers Tessmacher for 2. Tessmacher tries an O'Connor roll on Velvet, but Velvet reverses and catches a fall on Tessmacher.
Miss Tessmacher is eliminated.
Gail whips Velvet to the corner, but Velvet gets her feet up on a charge by Gail and comes out strong with a pair of clotheslines and a flying headscissors. Gail with a dropkick to Velvet and she tries a cradle while holding the ropes, but Taryn Terrell catches her and stops counting. Gail gets in Terrell's face, then goes back after Velvet with kicks to the ribs. Gail charges Gail in the corner, Velvet tries a Jack Brisco sunset flip, Gail holds the ropes, and Terrell kicks Gail off the ropes and flat on her ass. Velvet hits In Your Face on Gail, and we have a new Knockouts Champion!
Winner and NEW Knockouts Champion: Velvet Sky
Excellent match, and a nice feelgood moment for Velvet, who had a pretty long road back to this.
Bubba and Sting are backstage gettingt ready, Bubba wants to make sure Hulk's cool with all this, and Sting says he's fine and they're going to make sure that Lockdown doesn't even happen.
Mike Tenay informs us that cameras are being sent to AJ Styles' house, and we'll have an update on him next week. We then go to a video package looking at the history of Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Garett Bischoff, and Wes Brisco...again...then we go to the ring for our next match.
Garett Bischoff vs Samoa Joe
Please tell me Joe isn't going to have to put this kid over. Garett tries to turn the match into a track meet, running from Joe and ducking out to the floor to try and get in Joe's head. Garett finally slides in and tries to cheapshot Joe, but winds up on the receiving end of some hard jabs. Garett goes to the eyes and clips Joe's knee, then starts working over Joe's leg and tying him up in a leg grapevine. Joe slaps the taste out of Garett's mouth and connects with more jabs, but Garett goes back to the eyes, clips Joe again, and chokes him on the mat. Joe catches Garett with a back elbow, a series of clotheslines, an inverted atomic drop, a running boot, and a senton. Joe with the facewash on Garett, then he sets up for the Muscle Buster, but Wes Brisco runs in and the referee calls for the DQ.
Winner: Samoa Joe by DQ
Joe takes Wes out, but Garett clips his knee again and they double team Joe. Kurt Angle runs out to make the save and Brisco and Garett hit the bricks again. Kurt gets a microphone and tells Wes he got him the contract and now he's glad he did, because the pain he's going to inflict on him will be 100% legal. At Lockdown, it's Angle vs Brisco one-on-one in a steel cage!
X Division Title Match: Rob Van Dam vs Kenny King
King jumps Van Dam before the bell and dumps him right out to the floor where he chokes him out on the guardrail. King rolls RVD inside and covers for 2, but RVD slips out of the corner on a charge attempt and unloads with some kicks. RVD goes to the second rope, but King grabs his ankle and yanks him down onto the mat and covers for 2. King hits a high leg lariat for 2, RVD tries a back elbow to the ribs, but King yanks him down by the ponytail and covers for 2. King with a low snap suplex, rolls through for some mounted punches, then covers for 2. King with a seated abdominal stretch, RVD escapes and hits a double leg lariat that knocked King on his butt. RVD with another kick and some clotheslines, he does the pointing at the back thing and goes for the rolling monkey flip, King lands on his feet and hits Shotgun Knees, goes for the Royal Flush and doesn't quite hit it clean, and RVD is out at 2. RVD takes King down and hits Rolling Thunder, goes up top and hits the five star frogsplash, and RVD retains again.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
Hulk Hogan is backstage telling Brooke that there's no turning back now. Brooke asks him if he needs to do this, and Hogan says he's been pushed around and humiliated, and he needs to do this for their family. Brooke kisses him goodbye, and the main event is up next!
We go to a video package where Jeff Hardy somehow already has an interview filmed discussing Bully Ray as his next challenger even though he's supposed to be back hom in North Carolina recovering from his knee injury. Word travels fast, I guess.
Whatever. IT'S MAIN EVENT TIME! Well, we thought it was, anyway. Hogan's music plays but he doesn't make it out to the ring and it seems we have a handicap MAIN EVENT!!!
Devon, Doc & Ken Anderson vs Bully Ray & Sting
Aces & Eights works Sting and Bubba over, but Bubba takes Devon and Anderson out with a double clothesline, Sting hits a Stinger Splash on Doc, then he takes Devon out with a clothesline. Aces & Eights powders out to the floor as we go to commercial.
We're back, and Bubba is in trouble as he takes a 3-on-1 beating from Aces & Eights. Devon gives Bubba a tongue lashing as he puts the boots to his former partner, and Bubba fights valiantly, but is caught in the Aces & Eights corner. Devon gets a rear chinlock on Bubba, Bubba fights free but winds up back in trouble when Anderson comes in and nails him. Bubba finally spears Devon to create an opening and makes the hot tag to Sting. Sting cleans house on all three opponents and hits the Deathdrop on Doc, but Anderson breaks the cover at 2. Sting and Bubba set up for WHAZZUP on Anderson, but then Garett Bischoff, Wes Brisco, Mike Knox, and the Vice President drag Hulk and Brooke Hogan out of the back, and it looks like Hulk has taken a bit of a beating. Bubba chases Aces & Eights to the back, leaving Sting completely alone. Sting has Devon in the Scorpion Deathlock, but Doc comes in and drills Sting with a big boot for the win.
Winners: Aces & Eights
The entire Aces & Eights gang beat Sting down in the ring as Bubba comes back out to the ramp to check on Hulk and Brooke, and Aces & Eights is standing tall as we call it a week.
WWE Superstars Results February 21, 2013 Taped 2/19 in Biloxi, Miss. Report by Justin James, PWTorch Contributor
1 - SIN CARA vs. DREW MCINTYRE (w/3MB)
McIntyre easily sends Sin Cara to the mat on a lockup. Sin Cara uses speed to get an edge, then McIntyre with big power on attack. Sin Cara turns McIntyre's offense into his own attack. Slater provides a distraction, then Mahal distracts the ref letting Slater yank Sin Cara from the apron. McIntyre press slams Sin Cara back into the ring. Sin Cara tries to make a comeback, but McIntyre catches a huracanrana and turns it into a powerbomb.
Out of the break, McIntyre has Sin Cara up in a one-armed delayed vertical suplex, hitting it for a nearfall. The crowd rallies Sin Cara and an elbow cuts it off. McIntyre seems almost casual in his attack. McIntyre tries to remove the mask, but Sin Cara fights him off. Sin Cara finally gets some traction. Huge crossbody for a nearfall. McIntyre tries a powerbomb, but Sin Cara turns it into a faceplant. Sin Cara dives onto 3MB ringside, but they catch him. They choose to gently place him in the ring to avoid the disqualification. Sin Cara they kicks McIntyre and Slater in the back, drawing Mahal and Slater to the apron to distract the ref as McIntyre slips around the rear.
Slater and Mahal get ejected, but McIntyre ambushes Sin Cara. McIntyre celebrates, which lets Sin Cara recover dropkick to the legs to knock McIntyre down and Sin Cara follows with a unique move where he ran at the kneeling McIntyre, locks his head with the legs, and slammed his face into the mat.
WINNER: Sin Cara in 11:00. Nice match, very enjoyable for the in-ring action and the antic of 3MB. McIntyre really played up his arrogance nicely.
2 - CAMERON & NAOMI (w/Brodus Clay) vs. NATALYA & ALICIA FOX - Tag match
Cameron and Natalya to start, and they trade wristlocks. Natalya takes Cameron down and mocks their dance. Monkey flip from Cameron and she dances a bit. Natalya with a knee to the midriff to take control. Cameron in the corner and Fox comes in. Northern lights suplex into a bridge for two. Cameron is hungry for a tag. Cameron gets the tag and Naomi runs over Fox. Naomi with the speed and skill that made her a stand-out on NXT 3.
Diving European Uppercut, then Natalya breaks up the tag. Cameron and Natalya brawl outside, while back in the ring, Naomi nails a big cross-body for the win.
WINNERS: Naomi & Cameron in 4:30. The match was a bit slow until Naomi came in and turned it into an exciting bout. She was arguably the best in-ring talent from NXT 3 (in close competition with A.J. Lee), and I hope to see more of her in-ring work going forward.
The Associated Press has released more details on the February
19th arrest of Jack Swagger.
notes that Swagger was pulled over for driving 10 MPH over the speed limit and
his car was towed and later released from custody to a friend of his that picked
him up from the police station.
If Swagger is convicted, he faces fines
of $188 for driving 10 mph over the speed limit, $437 for a small amount of
marijuana and $1,300 for a first DUI offense. The DUI charge carries a mandatory
court appearance and he could lose his driver's license for 90 days. Swagger
could also face a maximum of two days in jail, but could avoid that by meeting
stipulations such as counseling.
As noted earlier, the DUI charge will
require Swagger to appear in court in Gulfport, MS on March 12, 2013.

PWInsider.com is reporting that TNA
Wrestler Eric Young is in Montreal filming the second season of his Animal
Planet series "Off the Hook: Extreme Fishing" . Young is expected to make some
TNA related appearances for TNA next month.
King Interview: Talks Las Vegas, Who He Would Like To Wrestle, WWE And
TNA Wrestler Kenny King was recently
interviewed by Heather Turk for the Examiner. In the interview King talks about the
possibility of going to back to the WWE, the local Las Vegas scene, Who he would
like to wrestle in the future and more. Below is a quick recap:
If he would ever go to the WWE: "No one in their right
mind would ever say no to WWE. That’s where the money is—that’s the top of the
mountain for this sport, if I got the opportunity, I’m sure I’d take it, but for
now I’m happy where I’m at. It’s too crowded over there; at TNA, I get some
Who he would like to wrestle in the
future: (Aside from his X Division feud with Rob Van Dam) “I
patterned my style off of him, so it’s just so surreal now to see me in the same
ring with him,” King stated. King said he’d love the opportunity to go
one-on-one with AJ Styles. He’d also like the opportunity to one day feud with
former WWE Superstar Shelton Benjamin. “Shelton’s sort of a double-edged sword,
as I’ve constantly been compared to him throughout my career,” King said. “But I
think our levels of athleticism would complement each other nicely, and we’ve
never fought each other one-on-one before.”
possibility of Impact Wrestling tapings coming to Vegas “I’ve
already talked to Dixie about it,” King said. “Hopefully I’ll be able to coax
her into it.”
- No confirmed word yet on what kind of actions, if any, WWE will take against Jack Swagger after his arrest on Tuesday night. The only thing we've heard is that they were considering "booking changes" which can't be good for Swagger.
There is talk within WWE about how creative is handling Dolph Ziggler’s push. While he had strong wins over Randy Orton at Survivor Series and John Cena at TLC, Ziggler has been constantly losing on WWE TV lately. He is still in line for a World Heavyweight Title run but the momentum he had at the end of 2012 has stalled out.
Jay Lethal def. Tadarius Thomas via Lethal Injection
Mark Briscoe def. Nate Webb via Froggy ‘Bow
Roderick Strong def. ACH via a brainbuster/backbreaker combination
Charlie Haas def. Pepper Parks via rollup
B.J. Whitmer def. Kyle O’Reilly via submission
S.C.U.M. def. Davey Richards, Michael Elgin and Adam Cole
- Estimated 800+ in attendance.
- Before the show Adam Cole, Davey Richards, Michael Elgin, and BJ Whitmer signed autographs and posed for pictures. Manning the merchandise table was Nigel McGuiness who was selling and signing his documentary DVD.
- It was announced they will be back in Cincinnati before the end of 2013.
Jay Briscoe def. QT Marshall
The night started off with QT Marshall generating some heat with the crowd leading into a match with Jay Briscoe. Jay took the win by pinfall.
Jay Lethal def. Tadarius Thomas
Jay Lethal picked up another victory on the road to his World Title shot. Jay defeated Thomas with the Lethal Injection.
Mark Briscoe def. ‘Spyder’ Nate Webb
Mark Briscoe pinned Spyder Nate Webb after a Froggy ‘Bow. Lots of comedy with the Redneck Kung-Fu in the beginning.
Roderick Strong def. ACH
Roderick Strong pinned ACH after a great back and forth match. He picked up the win after a brainbuster/backbreaker combo. ACH had the crowd solidly behind him even before breaking out his high flying moves. At the time this looked like the match of the night.
Hoopla w/ Truth Martini
After intermission Truth Martini came out with two scantily clad women for his show called “Hoopla.” After some cheap gags he brought out Adam Cole to challenge him to defend his title soon against Matt Taven. Cole super kicked Truth to the delight of the fans.
Charlie Haas def. Pepper Parks
Charlie Hass cut a promo that went as low as insulting some fans in wheelchairs. As tasteless as that was, his match with Pepper Parks was said to be just as disappointing. Parks gave some good effort, but the finish was opening a shaken can of beer in Parks eyes to blind him followed up with a roll-up.
BJ Whitmer def. Kyle O’Reilly
BJ Whitmer and Kyle O’Reilly started off methodically, but they heated up to have a great match that saw Whitmer go over by submission. Hard hitting as expected by both men.
6-Man Elimination Tag Match S.C.U.M (Kevin Steen, Jimmy Jacobs & Steve Corino) def. Davey Richards, Adam Cole & Michael Elgin
Said to be a very fun main event. Davey Richards was the first to be eliminated by Kevin Steen with a Package Piledriver. Steen then eliminated Adam Cole via F5. Jimmy Jacobs was the first member of SCUM to be eliminated as Michael Elgin pinned him. Elgin continued to fight in a 2-on-1 situation before eliminating Steve Corino. This brought the match down to Steen & Elgin, where Steen was able to eliminate Elgin with a reverse small package, thanks to interference from SCUM. Jay Lethal and The Briscoes came out for the save after the match, with Lethal confronting Steen to end the show. SCUM seemed to have a great time working the ringside crowd insulting fans during the match.
WWE’s writing team has been in somewhat of a rut lately, with a lot of disagreements and politics. The recent flip flopping on the Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow breakup is seen as one of example of poor planning and lack of commitment to storylines. Many of WWE’s top talents including The Rock, CM Punk, John Cena and others are pitching their own ideas and not relying on creative to direct their characters.
Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns have been getting rave reviews behind the scenes in WWE. All three members of The Shield are seen as having breakout potential, with Reigns having the look and intensity of a top tier guy, Rollins being a great worker and Dean Ambrose having the “it” factor that sets him apart from everybody else. Ambrose has been given the strong compliment of compared to a modern day Terry Funk.
Swagger's Arrest: What Wellness Policy Calls For Posted by Steve Carrier on 02/20/2013 at 09:33 PM
- Earlier today, TMZ.com broke the story that WWE superstar Jack Swagger was arrested in Mississippi last night after a SmackDown taping and charged with DUI, marijuana possession and speeding (all misdemeanors).
Swagger is in the midst of the biggest push of his career and is scheduled to challenge for Alberto Del Rio's World Heavyweight Title at WrestleMania 29. It remains to be seen how WWE will respond to Swagger's DUI & drug arrest, but the following portion of WWE's Wellness Policy could spell trouble for him:
"Any WWE Talent, who is arrested, convicted or who admits to a violation of law relating to use, possession, purchase, sale or distribution of drugs will be in material breach of his/her contract with WWE and subject to immediate dismissal."
"Subject" to immediate dismissal does not mean mandatory dismissal. Countless WWE wrestlers have been arrested for DUI in recent years, however the drug possession charge could really hurt him.
WWE has signed a new developmental Diva, Kendra Smith, and she has already
reported to NXT for training. Kendra has experience in stunt work, pro
wrestling, MMA and kickboxing, according to her official website. She has a
degree in acting from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. She also
is a certified trainer from the American College of Sports Medicine. Kendra has
already done some ring announcing work in NXT.
- The Rock has tweeted a new backstage photo of himself holding
the new WWE Championship title belt with the following caption, "New title. New
era. New standard. @WWE Heavyweight Champion. #JustBringIt"

Cena acknowledges that he hasn't beat Punk or Rock. Cena says we have a problem - Cena has critics and Punk wants to go to WrestleMania. Cena wants to hush those critics and has a solution. Cena proposes a match. If he wins, Punk crawls back in his hole and goes away. If Punk wins, Cena will give him his WrestleMania title shot. Cena says Punk talks business but he handles business. Cena wants the match right now. Punk talks it over with Heyman. Punk says Cena just made the stupidest decision of his life. Punk says he will take Cena up on the offer but he won't do it here.
