TNA has gone all in on the One Night Only pay-per-views it filmed in March, and Friday will see the debut of the latest edition of the 2013 series, Hardcore Justice 2.

The premise of the PPV is that it’s the normal style of wrestling the fans see each week on Impact amped up to another level with the inclusion of weapons and dangerous stipulations.

Add in the fact that the company brought back several big names from ECW and WWE that were prominent in the hardcore eras of wrestling, and TNA had a smart plan for this event and put on an excellent show.

While the results and surprises were spoiled by the video package promoting the event and TNA’s website, there is still enough action on this PPV to warrant wrestling fans to check it out.


Where: Impact Zone, Orlando, Fla.

When: Friday, July 5 at 8 p.m. ET (Pre-Taped)

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

Main Event Preview and Prediction

Tables Match: Team 3D vs. Jeff Hardy & Spike Dudley.

The entire Hardcore Justice PPV will be entertaining, but the focus of this show is all building to the main event between the reuniting Team 3D and the unlikely bedfellows of Jeff Hardy and Spike Dudley.

Bully Ray is the TNA world heavyweight champion, and he will be teaming with long-time partner Devon. With over 20 years of tag team experience and championships in every major federation on earth, there is no reason to believe any team could beat this legendary tandem.

Hardy is one of the most popular superstars in TNA today, and maybe with the help of a Dudley, the painted wrestler will be able to overcome Team 3D in the match that made them famous, but that's unlikely.

With Bully Ray as the company’s champion, there is no way TNA should let him lose.

Predicted Winner: Team 3D


Underrated Match to Watch: Generation Me vs. Bad Influence

While this PPV card looks very intriguing, one match that won’t get the mainstream hype (but absolutely will deserve it) is the tag team battle between Bad Influence and Generation Me.

Bad Influence is a team made up of Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian that has absolutely dominated TNA over the last year on the mic and in the ring. Every match they work is solid gold.

In the other corner, Generation Me is better known as the Young Bucks on the independent wrestling scene, and is comprised of two of the most talented performers in the world. While they are great mat technicians, it is their personality that makes them so intriguing.

Add in the fact that the veteran duo of Bad Influence will be looking to help Generation Me get over with the casual fans, and this will undoubtedly be the best worked match of the night and will feature the best storytelling.

Don’t sleep on this match!


Full Predictions for Entire Card

ODB will defeat Jackie Moore via roll-up pin.

Bad Influence will defeat Generation Me in the best match of the night.

2 Cold Scorpio will defeat Little Guido, Crimson, Shark Boy, Devon Storm, Sam Shaw, Funaki, Johnny Swinger and Gunner with the greatest dance moves you will ever witness.

L.A.X. returns and Homicide picks up the clean pinfall over The New Church.

Joseph Park will defeat Judas Mesias in what should be a brutal match. Park will get busted open and revert into the Abyss character and dominate for the victory.

The face team of James Storm, Hardcore Holly and Magnus will defeat the rag-tag Aces and Eights trio of D.O.C., Wes Brisco and Knux.

In what is bound to be one of the wildest bouts of the night, Team 3D will defeat Jeff Hardy and Spike Dudley when the littlest Dudley goes through a table.
