    AJ/Abyss IMO greatest tna match ever.

    Wargames and lethal lock down are terrible because of the rules...should just be an elimination match instead of everyone having to be there for a winner to he declared....it makes everything before that not mean a thing.

    So this is taped the Monday after the PPV so during the taping Candido is alive, but by air date, he’s passed away.

    Tonight: AMW/Naturals for the World Tag Team Championships. Dusty also has a huge announcement regarding AJ/Jarrett for Hard Justice.

    Petey Wiliams vs. Shocker
    This is so bad, both these guys are so bad and don’t know how to work a match so they just do moves and shit for 6 minutes. Shocker does some shitty sunset flip pin for the win. Mike says Shocker gets the title match at Daniels at Hard Justice. Mike interviews Shocker, he says he will win the title for his fans. Poor Daniels.

    A replay of Candido breaking his ankle, Mike says Candido will be here in the Naturals corner.

    Buck Quartermaine vs. Sonjay Dutt
    This is fine but went on far too long, Bucks’ control sucked but at least Sonjay bumped well and had a nice showing. Slingshot Huracanrana gives Sonjay the win.

    Mikey Batts vs. The Outlaw
    NO!


    3LK come out, BG goes to talk but Konnan takes the mic and challenges him to a match next week.

    In the TNA conference room, Dusty says at Hard Justice it will be a 20-man gauntlet for the gold #1 contenders match for the world title. AJ Styles vs. Jarrett needs a special ref and that will be. TITO ORTIZ!!!! Loooooooooooooooooooooooool. Jarrett comes out and he throws a fit about it and says that's not fair and accuses Dusty of plotting against him. Same Jeff promo he’s been cutting for the past 4 months. YAWN!

    The Naturals and Candido come out, Candido gets on the mic. He says TNA is forcing him to relive his injury because they keep showing the replay. But with 9 titanium screws and 3 sheets of metal in his ankle, he stands here because nothing will keep him from seeing HIS boys win the tag team titles. GROUPE HUG :mark:

    NWA World Tag Team Championships: The Naturals (w/Chris Candido) vs. America’s Most Wanted
    Special 30 minute time limit, these 4 have some much chemistry and have a formula that works. It’s AMW beat the shit out of the Naturals for a good length of time in and out of the ring, with he Naturals bumping like crazy for them. It’s brutal and great. TNA might have worse commercial timing than current WWE, as we cut to commercial AMW are in control but when we return it's at the end of the heat segment on Storm and we cut right to Harris’ hot tag. A high knee by Douglas to Harris and the Naturals now isolate Harris. It’s pretty good, tons of cheap shots, false hot tag spots, and heel tactics. But again the commercial cuts the heel heat short, Storm has a good hot tag and the match breaks down. Andy brings in one of the tag titles but the ref sees it and takes it away, that allows Chase to bring in a chair and nail Storm with it. Harris then spears Chase. Candido then rolls into the ring and puts Douglas’ arm over Storms prone body and the ref counts the three. Good stuff. ***

    Candido & The Naturals celebrate, Mike Tenay goes to interview Candido. He says the Naturals were overlooked but now his boys are champions, and he was the difference maker. EVEN WITH 97 SCREWS IN MY LEG! I WAS THE DIFFERENCE MAKER! Mike asks about a rematch, Candido snaps and says he ain’t no match maker. Chase asks who won :lmao Andy says this one was for you CANDIDO!!! :(

    RIP Candido

    TNA just lost their MVP, not best wrestler but the most entertaining guy on the show.

    Cassidy Riley vs. Abyss
    Hats off to Abyss wrestling, 24 hours after getting styles clashed and powerbombed into thumbtacks. Granted, this is pretty much a squash match but he must still be in some pain. I liked that Cassidy uses his quickness to run away as much as possible to frustrate Abyss, but in the end, that plan backfires and Abyss kills him in pretty awesome manner. Black Hole Slam for the win. **

    Chris Daniels comes out to do commentary.

    Sonjay Dutt vs. Shocker
    Pretty basic spotfest match, tons of spots, dives Lucha style pin near falls. Dutt looks really good again, as oppose to shocker who outside Lucha armdrags and weird crazy pin type moves contributes nothing. He does hit this pretty sweet powerbomb off the top for the win.

    Backstage: Raven cuts a promo, it’s a bunch of big long worded promo. I have no idea what he’s talking about.

    NEXT WEEK: TITO TALKS!

    The Outlaw vs. Konnan
    This goes all of one minute and a half until the Outlaw creams Konnan with a chair shot, BG and Ron come out as Konnan is out cold. Outlaw leaves smiling at BG.

    Earlier Today, Mike Tenay had a sit-down interview with both Jeff Jarrett and AJ Styles in the ring. Empty Arena style. Jeff says this is another ploy against him, he gives a list of everyone he has beaten since he’s been in TNA. He says Dusty only brought Tito in because he’s not sure about this PUNK. He calls AJ wet behind the ears and says AJ isn’t ready?!?!?!?!?! WHAT THE FUCK! SO WE GONNA PRETEND AJ ISN’T A TWO TIME NWA CHAMPION AND HE WASN’T THE ONE TO BEAT JEFF BOTH THOSE TIMES TO BECOME CHAMPION? Fucking TNA. Jeff says he'll slap Tito too, and says AJ is gonna get stroked. AJ says this is always been a goal of his, AJ tries to talk but Jeff keeps talking. It goes on and on. STOP ACTING LIKE THEY'VE NEVER EVEN FACED EACH OTHER BEFORE OR AJ HAS NEVER BEEN WORLD CHAMPION!

    Michael Shane (w/Trinity) vs. Chris Sabin (w/Tracy)
    So this gets the special 30-minute time limit for reasons no one knows. At least Trinity and Tracy ditched those god awful tag teams for Sabin and a slightly above average talent in Shane. This is fine, they know each other so well, so we get some really dope counters and reversals, even some new stuff added but the hatred isn’t like it was from 2004. Shane isn’t completely useless, Shane targets Sabins head and neck, it really good but Sabin has the most ass backward selling ever. He doesn’t sell or grab the neck the whole beating, but as soon as he makes a comeback now he begins grabbing the neck and wincing in pain. The match ends when Shane goes for the superkick but Sabin grabs it and counters into a side rolling pin for the win. After the match; Shane hits Sabin with a superkick. Trinity picks up Sabin and Shane hits him with 2 more. Tracy finally has seen enough and pulls Trinity off, Shane begins tunning up the band but the show just ends. **1/2 - **3/4

    4 Way Elimination Match: “Primetime” Elix Skipper vs. Eric Young (w/Scott D’Amore) vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Christopher Daniels
    This is super random but really enjoyable. Daniels and Young team up early, about 3 minutes in Raven attacks Jeff and they brawl to the back, so Jeff is eliminated I guess. A commercial really fucks this, as we go from 7 minutes to 4. Daniels keeps knocking Eric and Skipper off the apron to waste time and that takes 2 minutes off the clock. Scott tries to interfere but he gets knocked off the apron, Skipper eventually gets back in and begins teeing off on Daniels as Young waits on the floor, but as soon as he gets in Skipper hits him with Sudden Death and pins him. But time expires the same time Skipper cradles Daniels, the bell rings but the ref raises Skipper hand like he won. Boy TNA botched the shit out of that finish. If you’re gonna do a finish or a 4 way it should have gotten the special 15 minute time limit. **

    Mike Tenay shows the replay and tries to clean up the botched finish of the last match.

    Pretty awesome AJ Styles video package airs.

    Video Package on the history between AMW/Naturals matches.

    Fuckin Tito video package, this geek is getting way too much air time for someone who is only a ref for one match.

    Video Package on Raven/Hardy.

    10 Man Gauntlet Match: First Man Out is #1
    Sabin and Shane start, Sabin has his jaw bandaged up, they do stuff. Roode is #3, Petey is #4, David Young is #5, Roode gets eliminated after and kicks by Sabin? So does that mean the match is over? Roode is first out? HOLY SHIT! TRYTAN IS BACK! WHO THE FUCK WISHED HIM BACK TO EARTH? He eliminates Young, Shane and Petey as A-1 is #7, Lance Hoyt is #8, Abyss is #9, at the same time Lance eliminates TRYTAN LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! Fuckin Apolo is #10. A-1 gets eliminated for no fucks. It’s down to SABIN, Abyss, Hoyt, and Apolo. Abyss throws out Apolo and we get some cool Sabin trying to fight the two monsters at the same time, but in the ends, he can’t and gets kicked to the floor.

    Abyss and Hoyt have a pretty shitty big man vs. big man match, Abyss isn’t the carrier type guy and Hoyt who is super over for reasons I don’t know is still pretty shit. Abyss hits him with the Black Hole Slam for the win. Mike says with that Abyss is entrant #20 at Hard Justice.

    Word fucked up, it all got deleted after the Daniels match. And I didn't feel like writing about the main event because Jeff sucked and somehow dragged AJ to his worse match to date.

    Sonny Siaki vs. Monty Brown
    Fine Monty squash, he finally looks like he might be on track again after his atrocious 2 months being with the washed WCW guys.

    Backstage: Terry Taylor who is filling in for Shane Douglas is with Tracy and Michael Shane, Tracy turned heel at the PPV. Shane says the people around here tried their best to keep them apart but they are the ones that do the playing. Shane says Sabin is dumb, Tracy says Shane super kicking Trinity improved her face. Tracy says it’s time for Shane to take back his X-Divison title.

    Mike Tenay is in the ring and brings out NEW WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! AJ STYLES! AJ says he still can’t believe it and this may sound a little cheesy but he thanks all the fans. Mike then brings up Abyss winning the gauntlet match and is now the #1 contender. AJ says he hasn’t forgotten about Lockdown, but then Jeff Jarrett comes out. UGH! Jeff says everyone should be ashamed of themselves, it took 2 men to beat him. He says he earned his title win unlike him. He then says at Slamaversery he wants his rematch. Monty Brown comes from the crowd, and he attacks AJ from behind! They beat on him, BUT ABYSS RUNS OUT! They tease Abyss fighting Jeff and Monty but instead, he hits AJ with the Black Hole Slam. They then all beat on AJ until Sean Waltman and AMW make the save.

    Backstage: Jeff and Dusty are arguing, Dusty, says Jeff has his rematch but it will be in King of the Mountain ~ Jeff, Monty, Abyss, AJ and a wildcard. Jeff says they had the numbers last month but not anymore. THE BELT IS COMING HOME!

    Larry Zbyszko is on commentary, but Raven comes out! Raven says he shouldn't even have to come out here and ask to be the wild card. He tells Larry to put him into the match or this show becomes a blood bath. Larry says he doesn't know who it is, Raven says TELL HIM HE’S THE WILDCARD……Larry goes to talk but Raven nails him with the mic. Larry gets a few punches in but Raven hits him with a chair and Evenflows him in the ring. He says if he can't be the champion, he'll be the destruction of this company, and he Evenflows him again. Security tries to help but Raven beats them up too. Dusty comes out and says Raven won't be either of those things and he suspends him. RAVEN SAYS HE CAN’T SUSPEND HIM………….HE QUITS! AWESOME ANGLE!

    Backstage: Ron and BG are talking, BG says something about missing his flight and Ron says so he doesn’t have his number. Ron says ain’t no more Kru.

    So during Daniels entrance Michael Shane runs out and gets in Daniels' face about a title show, Daniels brushes him off and Shane backs off.

    Cassidy Riley vs. Christopher Daniels
    Daniels showcase it cool, Angels Wings wins it. After the match; Shane runs back out and attacks Chris Daniels. Sabin comes out for the save, but he accidentally hits Daniels. All three start fighting until security break it up.

    Backstage: AJ barges into Dusty’s office, AJ says he’s a fighting champion. Jeff is trying to ruin the show, he says he can’t wait until June 19th to get his hands on Jeff. Dusty then makes a match next week. Jeff/Monty vs. AJ/Anyone he wants.

    #1 Contenders Match Team Canada (Petey Williams & Eric Young w/Scott D’Amore and A-1) vs. America’s Most Wanted
    This gets 30 minutes so that neat, but I really hate that they now have Petey at the tag guy instead of Roode. Petey sucks at everything. Sadly they don’t do the AMW formula of amazing brawling and work it as a tradition tag match, Storm gets the better of both Petey and EY until the commercial and when we return the Canadian’s are now in control, thanks TNA for showing me how the heels took over. They iso Harris and it’s pretty cool, but Harris isn’t nearly as good of a bumper as Storm. Storms hot tag it good, but I always liked Harris hots better. The match breaks down and the Canadian’s do the sharpshooter/elbow drop spot for two, Harris then takes out EY and go to hit the PowerPlex but A-1 rolls in and Harris spears him instead of letting A-1 attacking him and they win via DQ. That allows Petey to ‘rana Storm and use the ropes for the win. After the match; AMW shows signs of frustration. **1/4

    Mikey Tenay announces Sean Waltman will be AJ’s partner, Jeff, and Monty comes out and join commentary. Well, Jeff does Monty just stands next to him :(

    Abyss vs. Chris Sabin
    Reall good big man vs. little man match, Sabin does the stick and move offense and has a lot of successes with it. I love Sabin’s jumping forearms, because of the size difference. Little shit like that is dope. Sabin does this AWESOME leapfrog over the ringpost and ‘ranas Abyss on the floor. He goes for it again but Abyss catches him and swings him into the steel steps. AWESOME! Sabin’s bumping in this is great, Sabin can only come back by going to the air. He gets a couple of near falls but Shane and Tracy come out, Tracy distracts the ref allowing Shane to hit Sabin with the superkick. Abyss then follows up with the torture rack for the win. After the match; Jeff and Abyss celebrate. Jeff extends the hand, they shake…….BUT ABYSS PULLS HIM IN AND NAILS JEFF WITH THE BLACK HOLD SLAM. Abyss and Monty then face off as Impact goes off the air. **3/4

    Ron Killings & BG James vs. America’s Most Wanted
    I like the concept of this both teams are going through a rough patch, so their’s some miscommunications and reluctantly between partners, neither team can really control the match like they want to. The match breaks down and Storm slides a chair in but Harris doesn’t want to at first, but when he does go to pick it up Ron hits him with a scissors kick onto the chair for the win. AMW argue after the match, and Ron leaves the ring and doesn’t celebrate with BG. The Outlaw comes out to attack Truth, but BG takes the bullet for him. He then attacks Truth until Konnan makes the save. Ron then hits BG with the shoe even though BG sacrificed himself. He then goes to help but both Konnan and Ron shove him away. Outlaw bails laughing at these fools.

    Backstage: Terry Taylor is with AMW who are still arguing, Harris says they are just in a slump and they will pick it up. Storm says it’s time for a change, he challenges 3LK to a match at the PPV.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ZACK GOWIN MAKES HIS DEBUT. FUCK I THOUGHT AFTER 2003 I WOULD NEVER HAVE TO SEE THIS CRIPPLE AGAIN.

    Romeo vs. Zack Gowen
    I have no idea who the fuck this Romeo faggot is but he sucks and Gowin still sucks, everything sucks. The cripple wins.

    Backstage: Terry Taylor is with Chris Sabin, Sabin say he hasn’t forgotten about what Shane and Tracy did to him, he will not fall for that twice. Trinity comes over and tries to form a partnership. She says they don’t have to like each other but as long as they do their part.

    Scott D’Amore joins commentary.

    Bruno of Phi Delta Slam vs. Lance Hoyt
    NO!


    The fat fucks try to attack Lance after the match but he takes them out, Scott D’Amore gets on the mic and stalls and challenges Lance to a fight. he has his back turned and Roode runs out from the other entrance and hits Lance with the Canadian flag hockey stick. Mike Tenay announces at Slamaversery it will be Roode vs. Hoyt.

    Replay of Raven quitting, we then cut to exclusive footage of Raven tries to run over a camera man. Raven says Dusty is holding him back from his destiny and this is a conspiracy, now that he quit he will destroy any and everything in TNA. The blood will be on Dusty’s hands until he gets his world title shot.

    Backstage: Terry Taylor is with the Naturals, Chase says he knows the road isn’t getting any easier and welcomes all challengers. Andy says he knows what to expect with Team Canada. He says “HE” sat them down and they got the gameplay, it’s now up to them to execute. Terry asks who is “HE?” THESE HOES AIN’T LOYAL! Candido ain’t been dead for longer than 28 days “Kayfabe” and you already moved on SMH!

    The Naturals vs. David Young & Lex Lovett
    I should mention the naturals are now babyfaces because no way people were boooo’ing them after Candido passing. They that kinda fucks them up. They are not Pun intended Babyfaces, they bump like them but the comeback and feds don’t feel natural. To my knowledge, this is their first time being babyfaces in TNA. It’s weird. They give Young and Lovett way too much on offense, Chase’s hot tag is cool but it just doesn’t feel right. I will say it’s not all on them as the jobbers 2.0 are not credible at all so it’s kinda hard to buy the potential of the Naturals losing. In the end, they hit the Natual disaster for the win. After the match; Team Canada run down and lay them out. *3/4

    Monty Brown & Jeff Jarrett vs. Sean Waltman & AJ Styles
    This is shockingly good, the faces get the upper hand early until Monty kills Pac with a lariat and the heels take over, good control segment on Pac. Abyss comes out onto the stage to watch on. AJ has a really good hot tag. The match breaks down and Jeff picks up the guitar but the ref tries to pull it away, Monty then picks up Pac but Pac low blows Monty and Jeff shoves the ref. Jeff swings the guitar and accidentally hits Monty with it. Pac holds Jeff in the corner allowing AJ to hit the spiral tap off the top for the win. **3/4

    Okay, so TNA's TV contract with Fox Sports expired and was not continued. So This left the company with no TV network for June. Well until June 24th, the show after Slamaversery. I was reading that TNA turned to the internet air webcasts, and made them available through BitTorrent, and later Real Player. I can't find those shows so oh well.

    Also, during that time Dusty Rhodes decided to step down as head writer. THANK GOD!

    PPV up next.
