Now that TNA has taken Impact on tour, the schedule calls for one live show immediately followed by a taping for the show set to air the very next week on Spike TV. Well, the promotion was live in Atlanta, Georgia, last night (June 6, 2013) with a mostly mediocre two hours (click here for the live blog and here for reactions) before taping next week's (June 13) show.
Here are spoilers (via PWTorch.com):
- Hulk Hogan promo on this being the Bound for Glory Series Selection Show. Jeff Hardy and Bobby Roode come out and argue. Next week is Open Fight Night and Hogan announces a fan vote for that show to determine who gets the first call out to start the Series. Hogan also announced a battle royal later in the show with all the Aces and 8s members in so one of them can have a Bound for Glory Series spot.
- Joseph Park def. Crimson to qualify for the Bound for Glory Series.
- Magnus def. Matt Morgan, Rob Terry, and Kenny King to qualify for the Bound for Glory Series.
- Velvet Sky did a promo bringing out an envelope that had clearance from her doctor to wrestle and demanded Mickie James give her a shot at the title. So Mickie takes her knee out and says she's not cleared anymore.
- Christopher Daniels and Kazarian def. James Storm and Gunner to qualify for the Bound for Glory Series.
- Austin Aries def. Eric Young to qualify for the Bound for Glory Series.
- Sting cut a promo saying he's bringing back the Main Event Mafia. His reason? No one helped him during his match against Bully Ray at Slammiversary.
- Mr. Anderson won the Aces and 8s battle royal to claim his Bound for Glory Series spot. Everyone but Doc straight up eliminated themselves. Doc got tossed, and he may be breaking from the group, or at least this was the first sign of dissension.
- AJ Styles def. Kurt Angle to qualify for the Bound for Glory Series and get his win back from Slammiversary. I guess that makes sense, and it looks more and more like Angle went over simply because of his announcement for the TNA Hall of Fame.
- In a post-match angle, the Aces and 8s came down and beat up Kurt, leading to Styles leaving him in the ring to get stomped. Sting chants occur, but instead Rampage Jackson comes down to make the save, chain in hand. After the two stared each other down on the previous show, they stood tall together to end this one.
That's the show, Cagesiders. How does it sound to you?
