TNA Live Event Results From Johnson City (3/1): Steel Cage Match Main Event, Gunner Vs. Storm
TNA put on a pretty good show tonight. Most of the talent obviously wasn't there due to the Outbreak PPV, but still a fun show. I would say there were around 700 or so people in the building, and the crowd was hot all night, too.
Here are the results:
Everything started with Gunner coming out and telling James Storm to get out to the ring for a fight. Storm came out, and they went back and forth for a bit. Storm said Gunner will have to wait another night for a fight. Gunner then called Storm a coward, and Storm said he's not a coward, and they'll fight later tonight.
This was the first match of the night, and the most entertaining. All four men put on a really good match. Lots of fast paced action throughout. Kenny King actually worked as a face tonight, too. The last time we saw him he was a heel.
There were some funny spots throughout the match. Both teams traded getting up on the ropes for crowd reaction. At one point, Manik grabbed Zema's headphones and put them on. When he put the headphones on, they started playing some old school rap music over the speaker. Then, King got the headphones and started jamming, too. At this point, Ion attacked King from behind and got the advantage.
The coolest spot of the match happened when Manik knocked both Sabin and Ion out of the ring. Manik then tagged in Kenny King, who took off running and did a flying corkscrew out of the ring on both guys.
The finish saw Sabin get knocked out of the ring. Then, King hit his finisher on Ion, tagged in Manik, who hit a top rope splash for the win.
Winners: Manik & Kenny King
After the first match, JB come out talking about giving away backstage passes to people in the crowd. At this point, Rockstar Spud came out. He went on about how as Chief of Staff, no one will be getting backstage passes. After making fun of people from Tennessee for a few minutes, AC/DC started playing. Out came the dynamic duo of Dewey Barnes and Norv Fernum. Norvbo – as he referred to himself – got on the mic and went back and forth with Spud. Norv said, if they win, the fans get to go backstage. They made it like it would be Spud vs. Barnes and Fernum, but Spud said they had to beat the guy he picked. Out came ECIII.
Ethan Carter III vs. Dewey Barnes & Norv Fernum
Pretty much about what you would expect out of this match. There was very little offense out of Barnes & Fernum. They got the upper hand late in the match, but ECIII hit a double clothesline, followed by a double One Timer for the win.
Winner: Ethan Carter III
After the match, Spud got back on the mic going on about the fans not going backstage. All of a sudden, ODB's music hits, and out she comes to a big pop. The match was made that if ODB wins, then the fans get to go backstage. Spud agreed.
ODB vs. Rockstar Spud
Spud had the upper hand for most of the match. After every move, Spud would grab a megaphone and start talking it up. Finally, Spud grabbed the megaphone like he was gonna hit ODB, but Barnes and Fernum grabbed it from him. Spud turned around and ODB hit her finisher for the win.
