Another Set Of Results From Last Night's TNA Event In Bristol: Sting Gets World Title Shot, Abyss
Had front row seats, so I got to do the meet and greet. Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, The Bro-Mans, Gail Kim and Chris Sabin come out to sign autographs. All of them were friendly and engaging with the fans.
This was a fun event to attend, and TNA had all of their top guys there besides Kurt Angle and Mr. Anderson. This is probably close to a 1,000 seat gym at the most. Good crowd tonight with about 3/4 of the gym full. The crowd was hot all night, too.
Here are the results:
Shawn Schultz vs. Dewey Barnes
This match was announced as a Gutcheck Challenge. Schultz was announced as the Atlanta, GA Gutcheck winner. Looks to be from 2012 based on the Gutcheck website. Dewey Barnes come straight from the souvenir stand to the ring. Quick back and forth match that ended with Schultz coming off the ropes, and Barnes rolled him up for the pin. The roll up set a theme for the night.
Winner: Dewey Barnes
X Division Title Match
Chris Sabin (c) vs. Austin Aries
Pretty good overall match. Only went about 10 minutes top. After some action on the outside of the ring (most of it right in front of us), they went back to the ring. Earl Hebner got distracted somehow. When this happened, Sabin pulled out a foreign object and nailed Aries to get the win. After the match, Sabin was taunting Aries, which led to Aries nailing a few punches on Sabin and sending him to the back.
Winner: Chris Sabin
Knockouts Championship Match
Gail Kim (c) vs. Madison Rayne
This match went about 5-10 minutes. Ended with Kim getting a roll up on Rayne and grabbing the ropes for leverage.
Winner: Gail Kim
World Tag Team Title Match
Bro-Mans (c) vs. James Storm and Gunner
This was the most entertaining match of the night due to the comedy. It started off with Robbie E posing on the ropes to a lot of heat. Then, James Storm posed on the ropes to a big cheer. All of a sudden, Earl Hebner jumped up on the ropes and posed to a big cheer. Both guys made tags, then Jessie and Gunner got up on the ropes and posed before tagging back out. The match started and Storm got Robbie E in the corner and messed up his hair. This led to Robbie going on the outside and getting into a brief shoving match with Jessie. Then, they hugged and the match started back. Jessie got Storm in a headlock and provoked Gunner getting into the ring on a couple of different occasions, which distracted Hebner. While distracted, Robbie E did some kind of armbreaker over the ropes on Storm a couple of times. This happened a third time, but when Hebner was distracted again, Robbie E had his back turned waiting to do it again, but Storm took Jessie over to him. Robbie thought he had Storm and proceeded to do the armbreaker over the ropes again. Gunner and Storm both got out of the ring and walked around to cheer him on which made Robbie realize he had Jessie. Really funny spot. The match came down to Storm and Gunner going for a double team move, but Robbie pulled Storm out of the ring, then the Bro-Mans hit their double team finisher for the win.
