TNA House Show Results From Columbus, OH (6/23) : Angle Vs. Anderson
-After the intermission, A.J. Styles defeated Jeff Jarrett. Styles almost botched a springboard clothesline, but managed to keep his balance in the nick of time. This was a solid match with the veteran Jarrett trying everything he could think of to win, but ultimately he couldn't pull a fast one on Styles. Jarrett fell prey to a Styles Clash for the victory.
-In what was stated to be another Bound For Glory Series match, Crimson defeated Gunner to gain seven points. Gunner was billed as part of Immortal to let the fans know he was heel tonight. Crimson came out with a decent reaction as he was announced from Fremont, OH (instead of Red Hook in Brooklyn). This was the match the crowd was least enthused about, but both guys worked their butts off to avoid any boring chants. It was lumbering at times and ultimately Crimson caught Gunner with his Sky High-like maneuver to pick up the win. TNA/Impact does not have the best track record for elevating homegrown talent to the main event level, but once these two guys gain a little more experience near the top this promotion might be able to start righting those wrongs.
-In the non-title main event, Kurt Angle beat World Champion Mr. Anderson in the crispest match of the night. Before the match, Anderson tried his microphone routine, but the configuration of the building negated a mic being lowered down. Anderson, to ensure he was booed tonight, called the fans "douchebags" and paused while the crowd was trying to sing along with his name. Angle earned the win after delivering an Angle Slam.
After the match, Angle posed for photos with fans for $20 a pop and unlike last year's event, no other competitors came out to sign items. The exceptions to this were Hebner and Jarrett at the merchandise stand. If you ever have a chance to attend a house show, it is worth the money and time as these events live up to the new slogan.
