TNA 'Impact Wrestling' results and live blog for Sept. 27: Championship Thursday

TNA is back with its latest episode of Impact Wrestling tonight (Sept. 27, 2012) in Orlando. It's Championship Thursday, too, and a new television champion will be crowned.

Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling is back with its latest episode of Impact Wrestling tonight (Sept. 27, 2012) from the Impact Wrestling Zone in Orlando, Florida, featuring Championship Thursday and the crowning of a new television champion.

Sorry, Devon.

Hulk Hogan is also scheduled to continue his tug of war with the Aces and Eights. An update on Joseph Park's condition is expected but getting clunked over the head with a hammer means he's probably pretty dazed, you guys.

Plus, Austin Aries and Jeff Hardy continue their build to the biggest pay-per-view (PPV) of the year, Bound for Glory.

It all goes down tonight starting at 8 p.m. ET, so remember to check back right here to follow along with the live blog as it goes down.



Nolan in.

Recap of all of last week's action.

Broadcast is live.

Aries and Hardy will be teaming up tonight, so that should be interesting.

Hulk Hogan is here with a baseball bat.

Hogan tells Aces and Eights that they have a date tonight. He tells the crowd to watch his back, "jack."

He says tonight is a turning point, as Bound for Glory is three weeks away. He says tonight's Championship Thursday and the TNA Television Championship will be up for grabs.

Hogan wants to straighten Roode and Storm out as well, saying they will be in a street fight at BFG. He'll be bringing in MMA fighter "King" Mo Lawal as a special enforcer.

Hogan says now it is time for Aces and Eights. He said that taking Joseph Park is " an eye for an eye," but he will not be tolerating the group harassing his talent and his daughter. He says he will be heading to Aces and Eights' clubhouse to look for a fight.

Out comes the Stinger.

Hogan says he just borrowed Sting's bat.

Sting says that he promised Hogan that he'd have his back and he says he will be going with Hogan to visit Aces and Eights. Hogan says go get another bat and they are ready to do it.

Both walk backstage as we go to commercial.


Bound for Glory memories of Mr. Anderson.


Kurt Angle (w/ AJ Styles) vs. Chavo Guerrero (w/ Hernandez) vs. Christopher Daniels (w/ Kazarian)

Daniels goes to the outside to have Chavo and Angle go at it. He goes back to the apron, but the two pull him inside. Chavo and Angle pinball Daniels back and forth with punches.

They corner him and crack him with European uppercuts. Angle stomps a mudhole in him. Chavo walks it dry.

Angle puts Daniels into the turnbuckle and Chavo helps him out on another corner. Daniels moved into another corner and Angle charges, but he cracks the ringpost with his shoulder.

With Angle down for a bit, Chavo and Daniels work at it. Chavo takes Daniels down with a clothesline. Chavo tries to whip Daniels, but he gets reversed. Kaz trips him up on the outside and walks away, with AJ walking in. This causes a conflict outside between Chavo, Hernandez, Angle, and Styles.

Kaz and Daniels taunt them in the ring.

Both teams rush the champs, who scurry to the apron. This sends us to commercial.

Back and all the partners were thrown out during commercial.

Daniels had a wristlock, but Angle explodes out with shoulder blocks. Angle with a German suplex to Daniels. Chavo charges and gets on the wrong end of one himself. Angle attempts an Angle Slam, but Chavo reverses into an arm drag. Chavo sends Angle outside with a clothesline.

Chavo with punches to Daniels and gets a headscissors. Dropkick. Somersault roll gets a nearfall for Chavo. Angle back in and he gets a belly-to-belly on Chavo that sends him outside. Angle hits the Angle Slam on Daniels.

Angle wants the Ankle Lock, but Chavo rolls him up for a nearfall. The two slug it out and Angle gets a bodylock, but Chavo baits Daniels into running into Angle, sending him to the apron.

Chavo with the Three Amigos and he goes up top. Angle gets the Ankle Lock on Daniels, but Daniels kicks him off and sends Angle into Chavo on the ropes. The two exchange words, but Angle says it is all for the win. The two slug for a bit until Daniels comes and rams them into the corner. Angle is stunned for a bit.

Daniels hits the STO on Chavo. Angle can't reach them and Daniels gets the victory.


Hogan with Samoa Joe, Magnus, Garett Bischoff, and Mr. Anderson.

Hogan asks Garett why he deserves a shot. Garett says that Devon saw something in him and he has been fighting since he got in the company.

Magnus asks why does Devon's tag team partner get a shot? Samoa Joe says that is funny, mentioning tag teams. The two bicker.

Mr. Anderson says he has heard all of this and actions speak louder than words.

Samoa says no one belongs in this room with him. Magnus disagrees and they bicker a bit more.

Anderson just wants to fight. Hogan asks who he wants to fight, to which Anderson replies that he wants Garett.

After all is said and done, Hogan eliminates Magnus to separate him from Joe.


Tara backstage with Brooke Hogan.

Hogan mentions that she said there would be consequences. Tara's "Hollywood" boyfriend calls and Tara says that Brooke has no respect for her and that she needs to know who the dominant female in TNA is.

Brooke takes the phone and tells Tara's "boo" that her match is next.

Tara is upset Brooke took her phone and wants to know who she is facing as we go to break.


Number One Contender Match: Tara vs. ODB (w/ Eric Young)

Young locks up with Taryn Terrell.

Tara and ODB exchange strikes


Tara and ODB are still going at it. Or should I say, Tara is scared to death lying on the canvas right now hoping ODB won't murder her face.

I'm going to try really hard to pay attention to this match -- fallaway slam from ODB and a kip up right after -- but Taryn, the referee, is absurdly hot.

Uh oh, ODB sends Tara to the outside and she's holding her knee. Not sure if this is a work but Eric Young is right there and acting like it is, so no biggie.

This leads to ODB headed to the outside where she throws Tara in, who takes off her knee brace and continues selling like she's really hurt. The referee gets in ODB's way but as they look over Tara, she grabs a roll up and gets the three count.

She limps up the ramp, the new number one contender.


We get replays from Gut Check last week and then we get Bruce Prichard and Al Snow arguing over Joey Ryan. Apparently Hulk Hogan is in Prichard's face about Snow's actions.

"Either you want to be a wrestler or an executive," Prichard says.

Snow is getting reamed here. Prichard bitching him out for hitting an wrestler who isn't under contract. Snow apologizes for making a "major" mistake.

Once Tazz walks in, they start talking about the kid from last week, who had a decent match with Doug Williams. They fade out by telling Snow to keep his hands to himself.


Cameras catch up to Bully Ray. He talks about how great it was to hold the title above his head last week.



Hogan in the back now with Bischoff, Joe and Mr. Anderson. Hogan says he's not worried about Joe but he is worried about the other two.

Hogan wants to know if Garrett can hang with the other two and he says he can.

Yeah, right.

Joe is in, Anderson is touch and go, but Bischoff's time is not right now. He's out. He gives Hogan a murderous look before walking off disgusted.

Joe vs. Anderson for the TV title is next!


Backstage, Bobby Roode shows up to tell Austin Aries he'll be tagging with Ray tonight against Aries and Hardy. Roode says he's got a lot of interest in the Aries vs. Hardy match because as long as Aries has the belt, he can't get a rematch for the heavyweight title.

Aries starts getting pissed but Roode says he's never been able to beat him like he's been able to beat Hardy. "From one champion to another, you've got the total package. Do we really want Hardy walking around with the title."

Roode continues going on and ends by saying good luck. Aries tells him to keep it because luck is for losers.



Samoa Joe vs. Mr. Anderson

Anderson is insufferable.

They chain wrestle to start, both threatening with a submission early. Joe gets the edge with an Irish Whip into the corner and an ass splash and spinning kick. Gets a two count on that series of offense.

Oh god, the crowd is chanting "let's go, asshole."

Anderson, you are the worst.

He makes a comeback, though, and gets a two count on a swinging neckbreaker. Sends Joe into the corner but eats an elbow on the way in. Anderson puts Joe on his shoulders but gets knocked down. Hits a jawbreaker anyway and finally gets the rolling samoan drop.

Anderson tries for the Mic Check but Joe gets out. They go into a series of ugly, ugly reversals that eventually ends in Joe locking in a rear-naked choke on Anderson.

More "let's go, asshole" chants.

Joe continues working the choke but he doesn't have hooks in from on top and Anderson nearly gets to the ropes. Just as he's about to get there, Joe locks his arm and rolls across, cranking on it.

This has gone on for far too long.

Anderson starts fading away and he "passes out" to give Joe the win and the TV title.


Video montage of the Aces and 8s controversy of late.

Cut to the back and Hogan is talking with Sting. Suddenly a little lady comes rolling up and says Prichard needs Hulk to sign some documents. She turns around and then suddenly turns back and sprays something in their eyes.

Aces and 8s shows up and tags and bags both of them, tossing them in the back of a truck.

"Don't worry. We'll send plenty of pictures," one of them says before cameras cut away.


Time to learn if Evan WhatsHisName will earn a contract.

Intros for Tazz, Prichard and Snow.

He says he wasn't happy with last week because he didn't win.

Tazz first. Says Evan has a big future and he's way ahead of the curve at just 18-years-old. He's got a lot to learn but Tazz wants to see him learn under this brand. YES!

Prichard says he agrees with Tazz that he has a hell of a future and he respects what Evan has done at such a young age. With that being said, the answer right no is NO!

Evan now gets a chance to convince Snow he deserves a shot. He talks straight to Snow and says he got his ass handed to him last week but he's here again. He'll get his ass handed to him every week and keep coming back. If Snow says yes, he'll be "like LaDanian Tomlinson, I'm going to grab that ball and run to the end zone with it, baby."

Uh, okay.

Snow gets the mic and says Evan is the epitome of what Gut Check is all about, finding young guys to be the next big stars in the wrestling business. Snow says he has the passion to make it in the business but he's 18 and Snow doesn't think he's ready just yet. His answer is NO!

Sorry, kid. Maybe join up with Joey Ryan, that's a better career path than earning the contract.


Hogan and Sting are tied up in chairs and the Aces and 8s are talking to them with their backs turned and that weird voice modulator.

The guy speaking for the Aces and 8s says they were having a lot of fun with Hogan before he put the Impact Wrestling Zone on lock down and that needs to change. So he's got a preposition for Hulk.

Hogan says he's got one too: untie them and fight!

Now they roll Joseph Park in and he's tied up on a table. This is just getting weird now. I mean, it was weird already, but this stuff is ridiculous.

Aces and 8s says they want two of TNA's best guys at Bound for Glory against two of their toughest guys. Hogan says he and Sting will do it but that idea is rejected.

If Aces and 8s wins, they get full access to the Impact Zone. If TNA wins, Aces and 8s goes away.

The deal is made and Aces and 8s says they'll let Park go after the match at BFG. He's the groups insurance policy. Hogan keeps calling him "Parks" for some reason.


Main event time.

Bully Ray and Bobby Roode vs. Austin Aries and Jeff Hardy

I missed the first bit of this match due to a short break, sorry folks. The heels are in control, though, with Ray and Roode alternating beating up on Hardy.

The heels are dominating the match now, all in anticipation of the babyface comeback with a hot tag thrown in. Aries is in now and attempts to do just that but gets snuffed out. Now Roode and Ray use effective teamwork to continue the assault on the heavyweight champion. Roode holds while Ray comes off the second rope with a double axe handle.

Aries makes his comeback, spurred on by Hardy riling up the crowd by smacking the ring post, but the hot tag never comes because Aries just doesn't want to tag Hardy into the match.

The Last Chancery is locked in on Roode but Ray makes the save. He lays out Hardy, who was coming in to help and turns his attention to Aries. A Double moves and Ray hits Roode instead.

Now Aries works over both the heels with Hardy still selling on the outside. Suicide dive on Roode into the rails. He goes up top with a missile dropkick on Ray but gets into it with Hardy briefly, allowing Roode to get in. Aries turns it around and hits the brainbuster. Hardy tags himself in and goes up top for the Swanton and hits it to get the three count.

Hardy sells his left arm by not allowing the referee to raise it. They argue in the ring before cutting to the back.


Sting and Hogan are dropped off and threatened again by Aces and 8s. They bail out and and apparently his name really is Joseph Parks.

Sting screams at the van that "I'm coming and I'm bringing somebody with me!"

That would have been really effective had he been Kurt Russell and actually had someone in mind when delivering the line.

Fade to black.
