2010 TNA Destination X Recap

“Destination X will be an example critics will use when they point out what’s wrong with TNA!”

Destination X last night was the showcase of the X Division, and in that regard TNA succeeded. Everything else though was polarizing with some solid, some mediocre and some bad.

-The Ladder Match was extremely fun! There were some sick spots that I definitely wouldn’t encourage anyone to do. I think it will give Money in the Bank a run for its money. Kazarian is back in the run as challenger to the X Division Title

-Tara vs Daffney was okay but nothing great. The Knockouts Division hasn’t really shined recently for one reason or another. Daffney is an awesome character and looks to continue chasing the Knockouts Title after stealing Poison on tonight’s show.

TNA Genesis PPV (2010) Play By Play – Kurt Angle Vs. AJ Styles Plus Hulk Hogan

Yep, I decided to get this show. It might be four years since I’ve seen an actual TNA PPV live, but hey, I’m caught up in the buzz too. I’m intrigued, but I know that more than likely, I’ll be disappointed in the end. But at least we’re going to get a good main event.

Big D will chime in with his thoughts from time to time.

Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff are in the ring to do a promo. There’s now a ramp and there’s no more 6-sided ring. Of course, on queue, the fans start chanting that they want six sides. Hogan says in a 4-sided ring is where professional wrestling is done. He said it’s where they shed their blood, sets, and tears. I think me meant sweat.

He called out Vince McMahon with his “Whatcha gonna do!” line and then called him “brother! or sister” at the end.

1. Amazing Red vs. Brian Kendrick

Kendrick’s the mystery guy, but we told you that last night on FGB Radio. Kendrick looks like he’s in his heel “The Brian Kendrick” character. No Don West with Red.

There’s a very large woman in a purple dress sitting ringside who looks like Brooke Hogan.

It was a pretty good back and forth match. Kendrick is much larger than Red and the story was almost like the champ was the underdog. I think most expected Kendrick to take the title. Kendrick slowed the match down as he and Red were off with the timing a bit. Red finished him with the Code Red, which is a cool little move. Very solid opener.

From Big D:

Hot opener. Surprised Red won, but Kendrick looked good. They must like Red. Bisch likes young guys.

Winner: Amazing Red

Sean Waltman beat Scott Hall in rock, paper, scissors to be Nash’s tag team partner after Bischoff and Hogan told them that they don’t have a contract and have to prove themselves. Why Hall would agree since he’s in the same boat as Waltman, the world will never know.

2. Sean Morley vs. Christopher Daniels

Kurt Angle Arrested; Possibly Could Miss TNA Pay-Per-View

With a lot of combat sports’ eyes focused on tonight’s Strikeforce show, headlined by Gina Carano vs. Cris Cyborg for the first ever major league Women’s MMA World Title (we will have full LIVE coverage of this show tonight), this story may be slept-on by many until tomorrow.

According to a criminal report filed in Pittsburgh today, current TNA World Heavyweight Champion, 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist and former WWE World Champion Kurt Angle has been arrested by the Robinson Township Police Department and is currently in the Allegheny County Jail.

The story was broken by Mike Johnson earlier today, but I decided to do a bit more digging and found some extra details. Apparently there was some kind physical altercation at Kurt’s house involving him and current girlfriend Trenesha Biggers, known to most as TNA’s Rhaka Khan. Shortly afterwards, she went to the police and filed an order of protection from abuse against Kurt. The cops came shortly after and removed Angle from the home this morning.

That wasn’t the end of it. Continue reading

Random Wrestling Thoughts – The CreedDT

Every week I will try look at Raw, ECW, TNA, and Smackdown and give my thoughts. These are just my thoughts ladies and gentlemen, just my thoughts.

Random wrestling thoughts for the week of July 21, 2008:

Raw

  • After all the great work that Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels did last night, the Raw show opens with Kane and his bag. Great, just great.
  • It appalls me how much JBL is pushed considering that with his back injury, he’s one of the worst wrestlers in the company. I know he can talk, but if when he gets in the ring, I want to fast forward, what good is that?
  • What a shitty opening segment.
  • Paul London is out to face Lance Cade. Where’s London’s big, huge bodyguard? Wait, that’s Brian Kendrick.
