This past Sunday was TNA’s biggest show of the year, Bound for Glory. A lot happened, and tonight on Impact Wrestling is the fallout of all the events from the pay-per-view.
TNA has confirmed two matches and what is sure to be four in-ring segments. So let’s get started.
Tara and Brooke Tessmacher vs. Winter and Angelina Love: Knockout’s Tag Titles
Tara and Brooke Tessmacher won the TNA Knockout’s Tag Team Titles in July and have only defended the titles once, maybe twice. It’s good to see the belts being used for more than just pieces of jewelry.
Winter came up on the losing end at Bound for Glory when she lost the TNA Knockout’s Title to Velvet Sky. She seems to be looking for more gold, this time with her lackey Angelina Love.
The titles are barely used, and TNA should really consider getting rid of them. If tonight is the night where the company starts to take the belts seriously, then by all means they should be kept.
They need more actual teams, though. A step in the right direction would be to give the titles to Winter and Angelina as they’re an actual tag-team unlike Tara and Tessmacher, who were a random pairing at the time of their title win.
Will we see new champions crowned tonight or can the reigning champs retain against TNA’s odd couple?
Karen Jarrett Reacts to Velvet Sky Winning the TNA Knockout’s Title
Keeping with the Knockout’s, as soon as Karen Jarrett took control of the Knockout’s Division she did not favor women like Velvet Sky or Mickie James. She would put them down every chance she got.
When they both qualified for the Knockout’s Title match at Bound for Glory, she was none too happy. Karen said she would do everything in her power to make sure that neither of them won.
At Bound for Glory, she inserted herself as the special referee in the match. Unfortunately for her, Winter accidentally spit the mist into her face which gave Velvet the opportunity to get the win.
Karen certainly won’t be happy tonight. What will she do to the new Knockout’s Champion?
Abyss vs. Scott Steiner
The Monster Abyss had been a member of Immortal since the stable’s debut at last year’s Bound for Glory. Scott Steiner joined the group this past summer and immediately jumped on the bandwagon when Abyss screwed up in the eyes of Immortal.
Abyss won the TNA X-Division Title by orders of Eric Bischoff, who wanted to kill the X-Division. Abyss was the perfect candidate to destroy it with his size and power.
At Destination X, he lost the title to Brian Kendrick. Ever since then, Abyss has been in the Immortal doghouse. All of the other members would physically and verbally abuse the former Monster.
Last week on Impact Wrestling the Monster seemed to return when he grabbed Bully Ray by the throat. Unfortunately, it didn’t do much good as he was beat down by the entire stable.
Abyss is no longer a member of Immortal and is free to be the Monster again.
Will Abyss begin his decimation of the heel stable tonight?
Bobby Roode Reacts to Kurt Angle Cheating at Bound for Glory
Bobby Roode fought from being at the bottom of the pack of the Bound for Glory Series to win the whole thing at No Surrender. He got his shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Title at Bound for Glory, but his dreams would be crushed.
Kurt Angle took the easy way out by grabbing the ropes for leverage to retain the title. Roode was clearly upset with the loss; I know because I was there.
How will Bobby Roode react to Kurt Angle’s cheating ways?
Dixie Carter Regains Control of TNA
When Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff signed with TNA, Sting suspected they were up to something. Nobody believed him, not even Dixie Carter. Then at last year’s Bound for Glory, Hogan and Bischoff revealed that they were in fact up to something.
Hulk tricked Dixie into signing the company over to him and Bischoff. After a trial, the company remained in the hands of the Hulkster.
Despite leaving TNA after Bound for Glory 2010, Sting returned to the company to bring Dixie back to power.
This past Sunday, Sting’s mission became a success. The icon defeated Hulk Hogan at Bound for Glory, and now TNA once again belongs to Dixie Carter.
What will be her first act now that she’s regained control?
Hulkamania is Back; Immortal Reacts to Their Leader’s Face Turn
Hulk Hogan has been in charge of Immortal and TNA since last year’s Bound for Glory.
This past Sunday at the latest Bound for Glory, Sting defeated Hulk Hogan with the Scorpion Death Lock. As Immortal was beating down Sting, something happened.
Hulk started to hulk up and fought alongside the Icon. Hulk Hogan was back to his old self, which is what Sting wanted all along.
Hogan even took out his long-time partner Eric Bischoff.
What will Hulk Hogan have to say to the fans? How will Immortal react to their leader turning on them?
Tonight on Impact Wrestling will be the fallout to Bound for Glory. We’ve got a lot happening already, but I’m sure we’ll see quite a bit more.
Much like the past few months, tonight should be another good episode.
What will happen? Tune in to find out!
