**SPOILERS** TNA iMPACT! Tapings (2 Weeks)
Thanks to Dave Meltzer of WrestlingObserver.com for these:
Team 3-D b Lex Lovett & Buck Quartermain (this may have been a dark match or Xplosion match, or could be the TV opener for Saturday)
Matches and segments for sure on Saturday
The Naturals b Apolo & Homicide via DQ when Konnan interfered. Very quick match. Crowd loved Homicide to the point when the James Boys made the save, they were chanting for Homicide. I don’t think TNA is happy right at this moment with the audience that saved and made the promotion, as you’ll see more evidence of.
Ron Killings b Bobby Roode in seconds. Roode wanted a rematch, and Killings pinned him in seconds again. Roode wanted a rematch, and then beat Killings. No, it doesn’t make sense to me either
Alex Shelley & Austin Aries & Roderick Strong b A.J. Styles & Chris Sabin & Christopher Daniels. Shelley & Aries & Strong have been put together as a heel group with a push. Crowd loved this match and I was told it was a super match live. Shelley pinned Sabin with a shiranui
Next came the segment where Jeff Jarrett’s group was to make fun of Sting. To say this died live would be an understatement. As soon as Jarrett came out, the “boring” chants were so loud you couldn’t make out what he was saying. What we could figure out is Eric Young came out as the 1988 Sting, Chris Harris came out as the 1997 Sting, and then Monty Brown came out wearing a wig, golf shirt and baby carraige, as the 2006 Sting. The chants were so loud nobody knows much, but the chants got creative as this segment went 15:00 and “seemed” beyond awful (it may play a lot better if you can hear the dialogue). People were leaving in droves as it went on, with chants of “Wrap it up,” “We Want Wrestling,” “This is lame,” and more.
For January 14th
Abyss b Jay Lethal
A.J. Styles was given the award as Mr. TNA for the third straight year. This segment backfired because of the loud chants of “Joe got screwed.” Styles was visibly unhappy with the reaction. Shannon Moore stole the award to set up their angle.
Samoa Joe b Cassidy Riley with a choke
Eric Young & A-1 & Petey Williams b Chris Sabin & Sonjay Dutt & Matt Bentley when Shelley tripped Sabin leading to the Canadian Destroyer by Williams on him for the pin.
Christian & Rhino b Chris Harris & James Storm in a non-title match when Christian pinned Harris. Crowd was dead for everything after the Sting segment. No Sting on television apparently.
