IMPACT Wrestling and Direct Auto Insurance present No Surrender live Sept. 11 on pay-per-view from Universal Studios Orlando, Fla.
There are eight matches confirmed for the event with the possibility of a ninth match being added.
The Knockouts, X Division, Tag Team and World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line. The summer-long Bound For Glory Series will also come to a close at the event.
Watch IMPACT Wrestling stars such as Kurt Angle, Bobby Roode, James Storm, Mr. Anderson, Matt Morgan, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, Sting, Bully Ray, Mickie James and more!
This match went under the radar now, didn't it?
Just because this match went under the radar that doesn't mean there isn't a little history behind it.
In an eight-man gauntlet last month on IMPACT, Sorensen eliminated Kid Kash, who later attacked Sorensen. The following weeks, the two guys exchanged victories over each other.
I think this would be an awesome match to kick off the event with.
Last we've seen of these two, Sorensen defeated Kash via pin fall.
Sorensen has three wins over Kash already, as Kash only defeated Sorensen once.
IMPACT is really building Sorensen into something great by having him make his IMPACT debut by eliminating four other X Division talents in a gauntlet and feuding with a veteran such as Kid Kash.
I'm basing the outcome of this match off of the outcome of the X Division title match.
Winner: Jesse Sorensen
This feud only started two weeks ago, so I expect it to continue even after No Surrender.
Morgan and Joe have been attacking each other and brawling nonstop on IMPACT. There's bad blood between these guys.
I don't expect to see a clean finish, especially since this feud is still fresh off the press.
I think this match can end one of two ways:
1.) Matt Morgan wins by DQ after Joe attacks his injured arm with a chair.
2.) Both guys brawl around ringside, refusing to answer the referee's 10-count
Winner: Matt Morgan by DQ OR Double count out
This should be easy to call.
Mickie James recently won the Knockouts Championship for the second time. It was about a week or two ago when Mickie won her second championship.
She's been champion for only a little bit and has already defeated the combo of Winter and Angelina in the past.
Winter can try to spit blood and do that old trick, but I think Mickie will see it coming and have a counter which will eventually give her the win.
Winner: Still Champion, Mickie James
Maybe Winter can accidentally spit blood in Angelina's face, triggering a feud between those two and allowing Mickie to feud with Velvet Sky going into Bound For Glory.
This is a much-anticipated match. I for sure want to see it. Why?
I want to watch Austin Aries start his first reign as X Division Champion.
Anyone who reads my IMPACT reviews knows I don't like Brian Kendrick recently.
The way Kendrick carries himself as champion is awful. He has a weird character and has shown the covenant X Division Championship such disrespect in recent weeks.
Two weeks ago, Kendrick walked down the entrance ramp swinging the belt over his head like some kind of lasso.
This past week, he threw the championship belt to the mat and said he didn't need it because it was materialistic.
Past X Division greats such as AJ Styles, Daniels, Samoa Joe, Kazarian, Petey Williams, Jay Lethal, Amazing Red, Jerry Lynn and Low Ki have held that championship.
Like I said last week and like A Double said this past week—treat the title with some damn respect, you idiot.
As much as I dislike Brian Kendrick at the moment, there's no doubting his in-ring ability. For that, this should and could be a great match. One of the better matches of the night.
Winner: New Champion, Austin Aries
With Aries winning it'd set up a face vs. heel, Sorensen vs. Aries match beautifully for BFG possibly.
Let this be a lesson. If you disrespect a belt, Austin Aries will kick your ass.
First off, how the hell did Pope and Devon beat The British Invasion on IMPACT?
I, for one, firmly believe that Pope and Devon have zero chance at winning this match.
Mexican America says, "Nada es impossible." Well for Pope and Devon, winning the Tag title is near impossible.
I thought Devon and Pope had trust issues.
I think this team will fall flat on its face with one of the men eventually turning on the other to take their feud to new heights.
It has the making to be a good match with Devon, Hernandez and Pope all in the same match. I just think that this one is too obvious.
Winners: Still Champions, Mexican America
Gunner has come a long way.
From a security guard to getting victories over former World Champions such as Sting, Anderson and AJ Styles. Now Gunner is two wins away from a World title match.
Gunner has been in IMPACT for one year. Bobby Roode on the other hand, eight or nine years.
Both are good in-ring workers but one man is better on the mic, and that's Roode.
For Gunner to win this, I'd call it too much, too soon.
Bobby Roode deserves to win.
Winner: Bobby Roode
I'm going to label this match as the toughest to call of the night.
You have Bully Ray. The best heel in wrestling in my opinion and a great worker in the ring and on the mic. Bully is near 40 and isn't getting any younger. I want to see him as World Champion one day.
Then there's James Storm. He can play both sides of the coin and is also a great all around worker. Storm has been with TNA since its very start in 2002. He wrestled the very first event under the TNA name. I also want to see Storm as champion one day.
I'd love to see either guy square off against Roode and I honestly think Storm deserves the win much more.
I'd rather see Storm win but this is very close to call. Bully Ray does have a pay-per-view winning streak. He won at Slammiversary IX and Hardcore Justice.
Winner: James Storm
With Storm winning, Bully Ray can either feud with Abyss for going soft, Gunner for his actions this past week or Mr. Anderson for their past matches and hatred towards each other.
I'd love to see two homegrown TNA talents, two tag team partners, Bobby Roode and James Storm square off for a chance at the Heavyweight Championship of the World.
I'm pretty sure the BFG Series will wrap up at No Surrender.
This match is unconfirmed and may not even happen at No Surrender. We'll have to wait and see.
With my past predictions of Roode and James Storm winning, I think these two will do battle in the finals of the BFG Series to determine the number one contender for the World Heavyweight title at Bound For Glory.
It's difficult to choose but my "markism" is saying "It pays to be Roode."
Winner: Bobby Roode
I honestly wasn't expecting a World title match for the show and think it would've been all right to skip it since Angle had two title defense on IMPACT, but a World title match is a nice addition.
I really hope Angle walks out of the IMPACT Zone with his championship intact despite his DUI arrest.
With Angle as champion, there's a better chance that he'll lose the title at BFG to the BFG Series winner. He's been champion since August, pour on a DUI arrest and I'd clock him in as a near two-month champion just fine.
I see no purpose in giving Sting the title prior to his match against Ric Flair next week and eventually against Hulk Hogan.
Mr. Anderson already had two dud reigns and I don't want him as champion for a long time.
My pick is Kurt Angle for the simple fact that, come October, the BFGS winner has better chances.
Winner: Still Champion, Kurt Angle
Try to check out this pay-per-view if you can. It seems like a good one especially with the possibility of the BFG Series winner being revealed.
It is Sunday, Sept. 11.
Remember those whose lives were lost on this day now 10 years ago.
