TNA Wrestling may have abandoned the Impact Zone and taken the show on the road, but before the company left the building, they filmed several One Night Only pay-per-view specials that would be featured throughout 2013.

Will you watch TNA's Joker’s Wild Tag Team Tournament?

This month’s event is the Joker’s Wild Tag Team Tournament.

Six tag team matches will be picked at random (with the participants of each team being randomly selected as well), basically making this a strange bedfellows competition.

Instead of this following the normal tag team tournament format, the six winning tag teams will then be entered into a 12-man, winner-take-all gauntlet Battle Royal. It will be every man for himself, and the victor will walk away with a cool $100,000.

While the rules may be complicated and convoluted, the quality of talent in this tournament is bound to make this one of the more enjoyable One Night Only PPV events from TNA.

 

Where: Impact Zone, Orlando, Fla.

When: Friday, May 3 at 8 p.m. ET (Pre-Taped)

Watch: Pay-Per-View for $14.95 (check your local listings)

Live Stream: TNA On Demand

Main Event Preview and Prediction

Final Gauntlet Battle Royal

While there are a million ways that this tournament could play out, the honest hope here is that TNA has worked out the schedule where the pre-taped PPVs match up with the current storylines in the company.

It would be incredibly embarrassing if a wrestler not with the company (Rob Van Dam) or off-and-on television (Joey Ryan) were to win the event due to the lack of foresight on behalf of those booking the events.

That’s why Matt Morgan should be the one that dominates this entire tournament.

With the push for Morgan to be the No. 1 contender to the world title, there would be no better way to make him look like a viable and deserving championship contender than by having him dominate this 12-man gauntlet Battle Royal.

Morgan has never been a main event talent, so if TNA is trying to build the star to that level, it must be done via pure domination of every match he is involved in, including this iPPV.

Let’s hope TNA officials took advantage of this opportunity and will use this tournament to further a storyline or two.

Predicted Winner: Matt Morgan

 

 

Predicting the Rest of the Card

Winners are italicized.

James Storm and Christian York beat Gunner and Crimson

James Storm and Christian York will go over here. TNA fans haven’t seen Gunner or Crimson in months, so it’s safe to say they will take the loss Friday. Even Gunner was surprised he was on the show:

 

Jessie Godderz and Mr. Anderson beat Douglas Williams and Kid Kash

As much as Jessie Godderz doesn’t deserve a win, the fact that he is teaming with one of the Aces & Eights' top guys in Mr. Anderson makes this an easy pick. Douglas Williams and Kid Kash are talented, but a win for that duo wouldn’t make any sense.

 

Samoa Joe and Christopher Daniels beat Chavo Guerrero and Rob Van Dam

In what has the potential to be the most exciting match of the night, former Ring of Honor foes Samoa Joe and Christopher Daniels will pair up to beat down the tandem of Chavo Guerrero and Rob Van Dam. According to his Twitter, Daniels gets to dance in this match:

 

Robbie E and Zema Ion vs. Bobby Roode and Joseph Park

As much Robbie E and Zema Ion are entertaining, both Bobby Roode and Joseph Park are involved in major storylines on Impact’s television broadcast each week and should be put over in this match.

 

Robbie T and Matt Morgan vs. Joey Ryan and Al Snow

Despite having an absolutely great storyline between Joey Ryan and Al Snow to start Ryan’s TNA career, Impact Wrestling has failed to utilize the talents of the original Gut Check star. Add in the recent push for Matt Morgan, and the result should be clear. Robbie T and Matt Morgan for the victory, with Rob Terry taking to Twitter to claim he's going to win it all:

 

Hernandez and Alex Silva vs. DOC and Devon

As soon as I saw the two members of Aces & Eights together (DOC and Devon), this was a no-brainer. Hernandez and Alex Silva fall victim to the worst gang in history.
