I attended the TNA event in Tulsa tonight and it was an awesome experience. This was my first TNA event to go to and by far it was better than the four WWE events I've attended in the past.
The "Meet & Greet" started at 4pm. The TNA wrestlers doing the "Meet & Greet" were Christopher Daniels, Kazarian, Doug Williams, The Pope and Zema Ion. I didn't get their autographs because the line was huge.
After the "Meet & Greet" was getting ready to end, the new ShopTNA merchandise guy Jimmy J. made a few announcements. The biggest one was that James Storm was going to be signing autographs at the merchandise booth and if you had any James Storm merchandise, you can have your picture taken w/ James Storm (I was one of the lucky ones). Other announcements were that if you bought a championship belt, you got a lifetime backstage pass to all TNA non-televised events in the future and if you bought Samoa Joe's action figure, you can go backstage and get it autographed.
Right before the event was getting ready to start, Jimmy J. announced they were selling 24 backstage passes for $50 each (each pass good for 2 people), and he also announced that Miss Tessmacher was going to be signing autographs during intermission at the merchandise booth.
The event started around 6pm. Jimmy J. introduced Jeremy Borash as the ring announcer for the evening. Borash got the crowd all hyped up and said this is the first time that TNA has come to Tulsa.
MATCH 1 - Jeff Hardy wins a Battle Royal and gets a shot at the TNA Championship later in the evening. Match was about 5 minutes. The last two wrestlers to be eliminated were Daniels & Kazarian. Other participants were Doug Williams, Zema Ion, James Storm, Samoa Joe and Mr. Anderson.
MATCH 2 - Miss Tessmacher defeated Gail Kim to retain the TNA Knockouts Championship. Great Knockouts match that lasted about 6 to 8 minutes. Tess hits the "Tesshocker" for the win.
MATCH 3 - Zema Ion defeated Doug Williams to retain the X-Division Championship. This one was good. At the beginning of the match, they locked up twice & Doug got Ion in the corner during both lock ups and each time Doug got Zema in the corner, Zema would scream like a girl, grab his hairspray and started hairspraying his hair (it's real Hairspray! Zema didnt have his fashion model hairstyle, it was his usual afro.) The match lasted about 8 minutes. At the end, Zema got his hairspray and Doug grabbed it and dropped it and as soon as the ref went to get it, Zema lowblows Doug & rolls him up w/ a handful of tights.
MATCH 4 - Christopher Daniels defeated The Pope in a Bound For Glory Series Match earning 7 points. Daniels & Kazarian have new music. It was some type of pop song and Daniels & Kazarian were dancing very oddly to it. After they did their posing, they got on the microphone & Kazarian asked us Oklahomans, "have you all recovered from the night LeBron James made you all his b---h?" which made everybody mad. Then he called all the people from Tulsa "Tulsa Twats". Daniels starts talking about when he moves his hips, the girls lick their lips and that he and Kaz were "sexual deliciousness". Pope comes out and tells them to shut the hell up. Pope said a few other things to get the crowd hyped up. Match was about 5 minutes. The ending was Kazarian hitting Pope w/ a title belt and Daniels connected w/ the Best Moonsault Ever.
