Smackdown Highlights for May 28th 2010

Originally posted on my blog on May 31st 2010

I am doing a marked down version today of the show for simple fact that I am short on time this week.

We open with a promo saying the Undertaker is returning to Smackdown... I was unaware he had even left.

Drew McIntyre came out with yet another note from Mr. MacMann. Dude, that story line is getting old come up with something new already. He was in a tag match with Swagger against Kofi Kingston and Big Show. This was a return match from the ppv last week. Kofi and Swagger are both champs at this time. Big Show got the win over McIntyre.

CM Punk who had lost his icky hair at the ppv came out for a match in a mask. BOO He still had the icky beard thought, I thought that was part of the hair match too... he went against Kane in a qualifying match for the next ppv. Punk got the win and now goes to the Fatal Fourway .

Christian/Hornswaggle vs Dolph Ziggler/Chavo. Christian got the win over Chavo with his killswitch. Ziggler then slapped on his sleeper on Christian after the match.

Luke Gallows vs MVP. Gallows got the win with a cheat.

Rey Mysterio vs Undertaker. Undertaker won with his tombstone and goes on to the Fatal Fourway.

My Thoughts on TNA Impact for May 27th 2010

Originally posted on my blog on May 29th 2010

I used screen capture for this post

iTunes Canada had it this morning, and as you know if you read my post at that time, I'm late because I went to see Sex and the City 2

Team 3D vs Ink Inc vs Nash/Young. Non title. Moore and Young started with a collar tie up, Young then working on the shoulder of Moore. Young went off the ropes with a shoulder block sending Moore to the mat. Back to their feet and Moore with two very deep arm drags which he followed with an inverted atomic drop. Moore then with a double leg drop going for the cover but only got a two count. Young then sent him into the corner, but Moore delivered a back elbow rocking Young. Moore then off the top turnbuckle with a flying bulldog going for a cover but only got a near fall. Jesse Neal then tagged in, and they used a double team move on Young, before getting shoved into the corner. But Neal got a boot up on Young hitting him in the jaw. Neal then with a cross body for a cover but still only got a two count. Young with a rake to the eyes then planted Neal face first into the top turnbuckle. Young then had a large slam for Neal, at which point Brother Ray blindtagged himself in. Ray went for a large elbow but missed as Neal rolled out of the way. Neal then fought back with a series of forearms to the face. Ray got things back in his favour with a nasty looking clothesline, before laying in a few loud chops to the upper body of Neal. Ray then had Neal in the middle of the ring delivering cross faces, and Nash was in the far corner trying to climb it for I have no idea what but Young talked him down, Devon then blindtagged himself in. Devon tossed Neal into his corner letting Moore tag back in. Devon and Moore then with a collar tie up which lead to Moore getting a few punches in before trying a sunset flip. Moore then with a flying kick stumbling Devon. Neal tagged back in, as did Ray who used a double clothesline to knock down both Ink Inc. Neal in the corner again with Ray stomping on him, yelling that he's just not going to pin him yet. Neal managed to get a gore on Ray for the win. Nash and Young had started to leave the ring area, then for whatever reason Nash jumped back up with the tag belt held high. Weird.

Kaz vs Jay Lethal. I'm still giddy over Lethal being just Lethal, still doing a happy dance.
They started with a collar tie up. Kaz then started to just lay down punches on Lethal getting him against the ropes for a moment. Lethal used a nice kick, followed by a standing drop kick knocking Kaz down. Lethal then on the apron with a shoulder block to Kaz through the ropes. He slingshot back into the ring right into a leg scissors which tossed Kaz out of the ring. Lethal then used a suicide dive nailing Kaz against the rails. And he screamed that he's so glad to be back. Back in the ring and Lethal goes for a cover but only gets a two count. Kaz then in the corner and Lethal with another drop kick sending him hard into the turnbuckles. Kaz then with a running leap and a knee to the back of the neck of Lethal, getting him off guard following it up with a few forearms to the face. Kaz then with a hard slam on Lethal and a springing leg drop, but Lethal used a few punches and a spring off the ropes into a flying forearm knocking Kaz down. Lethal followed this up with a running moonsault into a crossbody but only got a two count. Kaz then with a jawbreaker but Lethal quickly came back at him with a running kick to the back of the skull turning Kaz inside out. Lethal then slapped in a figure four leg lock but Kaz got to the ropes breaking the hold. Kaz used a roll up for the win.

Orlando Jordan vs Abyss. Jordan went right for the injured arm of Abyss, but Abyss managed to back away a few steps. they then went into a collar tie up which quickly led to Abyss getting a wrist lock on Jordan. Jordan turned it around in his favour by using a roll through then went right back to the injured arm Abyss did however, get a clothesline on Jordan knocking him to the mat for a moment. Abyss then with a large high backdrop on Jordan sending him clear across the ring. Abyss then charged after him, but Jordan moved and Abyss went shoulder first into the steel. Jordan then went back to working on the injured arm by ripping off the bandages and picking at the stitches. Jordan then went to the top rope coming down hard with an elbow to the arm of Abyss. Abyss then was able to fight back with a simple boot to the face of Jordan which he followed up with a splash in the corner. Jordan then went for a float over in the far corner, but Abyss caught him in midair and slammed him hard in the middle of the ring. Both men out of the ring suddenly and Jordan going face first into the ring post. Desmond Wolfe then came out and the match was called by a dq.

Knock Out tag match... Beautiful People vs Serina/Wilde. BP win and keep their titles.

Wolfe vs Hardy...I debated if I was going to cover this one as I really don't like Hardy but I do like Wolfe so.... Wolfe started with a shoulder block, followed by an upper cut causing Hardy to stagger to the ropes. Wolfe with a snap take over then off the ropes with another shoulder block, and a cartwheel getting out of the way of Hardy. Nice. Wolfe then with a leap frog over Hardy, but Hardy grabbed him for his sit down pin, only got a two count. Wolfe with a kick from the corner then an upper cut sending Hardy once again to the ropes. Hardy then charged at Wolfe, who moved out of the way and planted Hardy face first into the top turnbuckle before going for kick/chop combo to the neck of Hardy while having him in a modified hangman. This is why I like Wolfe, he's quick thinking. Wolfe then going for his second rope speed bump, but was cut short by Hardy with a spinning kick. BOO. Hardy then with his running drop kick in the corner. Double Boo. Wolfe rolled out of the ring, Hardy then with a second rope slide and a cross body onto the floor. Wolfe then elbowed him sending Hardy into the rails. Back in the ring and Wolfe goes for a cover but only got a two count. Hardy going for his twist of fate but it was blocked and countered by Wolfe with a wicked looking arm-wringer snap. Nice. Wolfe went for a cover but again, only a two. He was going for his trademark tower of London, but Hardy blocked it. Hardy then went for another twist of fate but once again, Wolfe blocked it and countered with his hammerlock. Hardy in the corner with a scissors move rolling Wolfe across the ring. Hardy off the top rope with a corkscrew move that slammed into the ref, then he put his twist of fate on Wolfe, but the ref was down. Wolfe with a cheat move with a loaded weapon for the win.

A.J. Styles vs Mr. Anderson. Yay! Styles got rid of the cuff links. He finally listened to me. I think Styles should be the number one contender to the belt. They started with a collar tie up, Styles landing in the corner. He then got a side head lock on Anderson before Anderson reversed it slapping one on him. This went on for a few minutes, each trying to counter and ending up with Styles still in a side headlock on the mat. Styles did finally break the hold with a head scissors on Anderson. He broke out of this move, and Styles slapped another side headlock on him. Finally, back to their feet and they traded forearms/chops for a moment. Styles then with a leap frog over Anderson, and a drop kick. Anderson then with a few punches, and Styles going for another leap frog, but was caught by Anderson who used a roll through going for a cover. Only a two count. Styles with a kick to the skull from the mat, and started to step on Anderson's throat. Styles then with a snapmare, and working on the shoulders and neck of Anderson. Anderson battled out with a series of punches then a flying forearm/crossbody combo. But Styles used a roll up for the win.

Raw May 24th 2010 - Sort of


Hey guys, I had some issues getting to see the whole show this week so there isn't an actual review of this past Monday's Raw.

But, I will give a small run down of my thoughts on the parts I did get to see.

Batista quitting. We should be so lucky. I don't know if his contract is up, or if he's really injured or what the case is, but it's time for him to just go away. I like the idea of Bret Hart now being in charge and firing Batista. Works for me.

Bret Hart being the new general manager. You would think that this would eliminate the crappy guest host, but it seems they still want to suck the life out of us on that. Stupid.

The next ppv having a 4 way for the belt. Randy Orton, Sheamus, Edge and Cena. I actually like this idea. The feuds here could turn out to be wicked if they do them right. I'm not a fan of Cena so seeing him loose the title soon to anyone would be nice. But you know I have a soft spot for Sheamus.

Speaking of the white knight, he was looking alittle vampy this week from the bit I saw. As in wearing vampire movie body make up. Normally, you can see every red mark on him from the other guys hitting him with chops and such and from where he gets tossed into the ring post and what not, but this week you didn't see any red marks or bruises. It was almost too perfect his skin. Not that I'm complaining as you know I love a pale Irish guy.

I promise to have things back on schedule next week. Baring of course another power outage.

My Thoughts on TNA Impact for May 20th 2010

Originally posted on my blog on May 25th 2010


iTunes Canada is once again late, I had to go looking on the Spike Tv official website
And we open with Bishoff and Miss-Tes-Mocker.... um wasn't that the same name you guys gave Stacey Kibler when she first started back in WCW as part of censor board group thingie you had her in? Standards and Practices?

So we were given the top ten contenders for the belt.
10- Samoa Joe
9- Rob Terry
8- Desmond Wolfe
7- Pope
6- Abyss
5-Mr. Anderson
4-Hardy
3-A.J. Styles
2-Kurt Angle
1-Sting
Wow, what a very crappy and predictable line up. I would have had Samoa Joe, Desmond Wolfe, A.J. Styles and who I have been cheering for on this for months that was overlooked Eric Young. as the list. Yes, I feel this list is total bulldren. Then Angle removed himself, opening up the number 10 spot as everyone moved up one. Kaz would later in the night win a 8 man X-Division battle royal for the spot. Now Kaz I can get behind.

Knock Outs match... Roxxi vs Madison Rayne. Roxxi won with her trademark Voodoo Drop.

Orlando Jordan vs Rob Terry. this is a sugarcoated waste of time. Jordan went right for the injured leg of Terry, but was tossed across the ring. Terry then started in with a hiptoss and a series of clotheslines. He pushed Jordan into the corner, before Terry used a massive backdrop on him, then followed it up with a short clothesline. Jordan then went after the knee again. He slapped on a leg lock submission move, and the ref called the bell.

Beer Money Inc vs Jay Lethal/RVD. damn this was shaping up to be a wicked match till you put RVD in there now ... But it's Jay Lethal as Jay Lethal... I'm doing a happy dance. Roode jumped Leathal as the bell was ringing. Pushed him into the corner with a series of punches. Lethal fought back with a few chops, but was put into a headlock. Lethal did get out of it, using a hip toss with his cartwheel drop kick on Roode. Beauty! I'm still giddy about him being just Jay Lethal. Lethal charged at Roode, but ended up on the outside of the ring apron, and used a shoulder block on Roode sending him back a few feet. Lethal went up to the ropes, but was tossed off by Storm, giving Roode the chance to stomp on him. Storm tagged in, and they used a double team move on him in the corner. Storm then followed this up with a couple of stomps to the thighs of Lethal and a clothesline that turned him inside out. Roode then tagged in, and they used a double team on Lethal sending him flying to the rafters with a hard back body drop. Storm tagged back in, and again they double teamed him. Storm laying in some hard looking punches. Lethal off the ropes with his handspring back elbow. Both Roode and RVD have now tagged in. RVD with clotheslines on both members of BMI, then a spinning kick to Storm in the corner. He then went for his trademark roundhouse, but Roode blocked it. RVD then to the top turn buckle with his flying single leg drop kick and into a cover but only a two count. Storm back into the ring and they used another double team move on him, then Lethal blindtagged himself in, going for a missile drop kick on Roode and followed it with his lethal combination backbreaker Then RVD used his rolling thunder on Roode, before Lethal slapped on a figure four leg lock on Roode for the win.

I understand the idea of having Eric Young team up with Nash and Hall, I do really, just promise me one thing You will keep the bald look going, cause damn you look good bald Mr. Young.
He went up against Shanon Moore. Young jumped Moore attacking his shoulders. He sent Moore into the corner, but Moore used a float over then a arm drag on Young. He followed this with a drop kick and an inverted atomic drop. Moore then used a double leg drop going for a cover but only got a near fall. Moore back to the corner, this time with a flying cross body on Young, another cover but only a near fall. Moore was going off the ropes but Young cut him short with a running clothesline. Young then with a drop elbow and cover but only got him a two count. Young followed this up with a scoop slam and a flying elbow off the top rope. He then had Moore on the second rope, choking him out before using a snap take over into a submission move. ...then the website crashed and the segment skipped. Dude! Moore battled out, and went off the ropes again, Young catching him in mid move, but Moore pulled a bulldog on him then backed it up with a series of drop kicks. Moore then off the top rope with a corkscrew move, but only got a near fall. Young used a piledriver on him for the win.

Hardy vs Sting... I don't care.

And the MotorCityMachine Guns! this is one of those matches I hate to even try to call cause it's total chaos. MMG, vs Kaz vs Generation Me vs Amazing Red vs Homicide. In a battle royal. Dude, I can't even keep up with who's in this there is no way I can call it proper. Totally sucks. Amazing Red was eliminated. Max Buck was eliminated Alex Shelley was eliminated what! Mr. Shelley how could you (I suddenly want to say the line from Lost Boys when Sam finds out Micheal is a vampire and says "you just wait till mom finds out" but that would be so wrong to be saying right now. Well, you know I just needed to find away to get a vampire reference in) Jeremy Buck was eliminated Chris Sabin was eliminated is he okay? He fell funny on the apron. Homicide was eliminated by Kendrick who by the by was hiding under the ring the whole time, I didn't even know he was in this match. Kendrick was eliminated Kaz wins he now moves into the number 10 spot

I used screen capture for this post

We opened with Bret Hart as we were in Toronto. Finally, Canada is getting some respect from the WWE. oh don't even get me started on the episode from last summer that Sargent Slaughter hosted. And Jericho, the two biggest names from Canada at the moment in the business. Good call. Hey, thought this was suppose to be commercial free? Seems someone forgot to tell the SCORE here in Canada, as there were commercials (mind you this was a replay)

Edge vs Christian. Beauty! Nice! Wicked! they started with a collar tie up, Edge in the corner. Another collar tie up with a go behind by Edge that was quickly countered by Christian who used a take down to get Edge on the mat. Another tie up Edge getting the quick advantage with a wrist lock before slapping on a side headlock. Christian got out of it and used a leapfrog then a clothesline going for a cover. Only a near fall. Edge with a hard slap to Christian, both men now running around the outside of the ring. Edge slithered back in, with a series of forearms to the neck of Christian.

Christian used a roll up to counter the hold and put Edge in a headlock.

Only got a two count. Back to their feet and Christian with a series of forearms and kicks from the corner, causing Edge to stumble. Christian was heading for a top rope move but was countered the first time, used a tornado DDT the second time but only a near fall.

Once again Edge on the second rope and Christian was able to deliver his floored slap followed by a reversed hangman on the top rope. Edge was going for a kick to the skull of Christian, but he got out of the way and used a roll up for the cover, but only got a two count on Edge. A vicious forearm to the back of the neck from Edge sent Christian flying onto the ropes nearly knocking him out. Edge was setting up for his spear but it was countered as Christian flew off the top rope with a sunset flip, still only a near fall. Edge was heading for his spear again but Christian countered another time with a sea-saw on the ropes before taking to the air himself landing a flying elbow perfectly. Christian went once more for his killswitch but was unable to lock it on. Edge shoved him into the ringpost and speared him for the win.

Then the Undertaker came out... yeah I get you're the star attraction and the company is hinged on you, but dude why the hell does it take you so frealing long to get your ass to the ring? I mean, man they made fun of Trent Acid taking forever on JCW, but you take just as long. This is round two for Edge. Edge spent time hanging out on the apron letting the count out happen. Christian was still hanging out few feet away and tossed Edge back in the ring where he promptly got choke slammed.

DiBiase with Virgil .... dude no! That's just so wrong! vs Yoshi Tatsu. DiBiase started with a go behind, slithering around to put on a headlock then an armbar. Tatsu countered with an armbar of his own, before DiBiase backed him into the corner. They then both were off the ropes, Tatsu going for a hip toss but it was blocked, he got it though on the third try. Tatsu with a drop kick and an armbar. DiBiase backed him into the corner again, with a hard forearm. He then tossed Tatsu into the far corner.

I'm liking the style he's wrestling

Smith then back in the ring and they used the heart attack on Miz. Bret then slapped his trademark sharpshooter on Miz. Miz tapped out and Bret Hart is now the new United States Champ.
The beginning of this match Regal and Kozlov came out to tangle with the Hart Dynasty. Nice way to set up a feud between those two teams.

The attitude adjustment was blocked by Sheamus grabbing the ropes, Sheamus got tossed out of the ring and Batista ran in making this a dq.

screen capture was done by me using my laptop up to the television so that is why it's all fuzzy.

Christian went back to working on the neck with a chin lock. Kofi got out of the hold with a series of forearms before being sent backwards into the corner. Christian charged at him, but missed as Kofi used the second rope for a swing kicking Christian. Kofi off the top rope with a cross body but only got a two count.

Kofi was getting things set up for his boom drop but was stopped mid move as Christian grabbed his legs for a cover, only getting a two count. Kofi then with a leap frog over Christian but was countered when Christian got him on his shoulders for a hard slam. Only got a near fall.

Flying elbow from Christian following it with a mule kick and a sunset flip. Kofi countered with his trouble in paradise for the win.
Kofi Kingston was the champ for about two minutes before Drew McIntyre came to the ring with a "note " saying he was still the champ.


Shad Gaspard vs Jesse Guyver . Shad tossed Guyver into the corner then started to stomp on him, before Guyver fought back with a few forearms. That was cut short with a large boot to the face from Shad. This was all Shad with a side head lock slam. He had him on the ropes for a beat down, before being slammed again on the mat. Guyver tried a sunset flip but was stopped with a choke from Shad, who then used an STO for the win.

Kane answered with a chop of his own. Chavo off the top rope right into a choke slam. Kane won with little effort.

Rey then used a drop toe hold in the far corner sending Punk face first into the second turnbuckle. Rey was caught in the tree of woe, Punk using a basement drop kick going for a cover but only a two count. Punk slapped on an abdominal stretch adding pressure with a few elbows to the side. Rey managed to get out of it, and used another drop toe hold forcing Punk onto the second rope in set up for his 619 but it was countered as Punk slipped out of the way. Punk then tossed Rey out of the ring. Punk now outside the ring began a beating on Rey then tossed him back into the ring following with a top rope springboard. Only got him a two count. Punk went back to another submission move on Rey. Once again, Rey battled out with kicks then followed with his flying bulldog. Rey off the top rope with his trademark springboard but Punk was able to counter with a kick knocking Rey down. It only got him a near fall. Rey had Punk set up for the 619 again, but Luke Gallows came to the ring to distract Rey giving Punk the chance to do a roll up on him. Still only got a two count. Once more with the 619 and a springboard for the cover, but another distraction with Serrina coming into the ring and then a fourth member of Punk's crew hitting Rey from behind. Match was tossed for a DQ.

Thunder Bay was rocked by GNW

All Photos Copyright Kimberly Hulst '2010


From a late start (has any wrestling in this city ever started on time?) to a bad fan climbing the turnbuckles, to Nash sending Hannibal through a table, the night was wicked!



Let's get one thing straight right off the bat, everyone was there to see one man and one man only, VAMPIRO!!!!!
I'll give you the run down to the best of my ringing ears and splitting headache
I was in between the press pit and the wheel chair corner, which at first was no issue at all, but by the time Kevin Nash and Scott Steiner came out, dude, I could not see at all. Everyone and their dog's grandmother were then standing in front of me, and I was front row.
    1. Chaz Lovely vs (I didn't catch his name as the microphone sucked!) Chaz Lovely won with a neckbreaker -YAY!!!!! Oh I feel some profile love coming on Mr. Lovely
    2. The Sex Symbol vs Genius. The Sex Symbol won with a gorgeous moonsault. That was his first match of the night by the by.
    3. Honky Tonk Man vs (I think it was the Shocker? again didn't catch his name) Honky Tonk Man won with .... I didn't see as the large wall of fat men were suddenly in front of me.
    4. VAMPIRO vs Vinny something ... Vampiro won with his trademark and might I add BEAUTY nail in the coffin. Was there any doubt?
    5. Handi cap match between a masked team I think were called the Japan Assassins ??? with The Sex Symbol vs Scott Steiner. Steiner made extreme quick work of the masked men and then had a decent match with the Sex Symbol... or so I am guessing as I was pushed out of the way by a wall of fat drunk men. Steiner did make him tap out.
    6. Terry Funk was the special ref in this one between Kevin Nash and Hannibal. Once again, I was pushed as the entire building decided to cram themselves in the 5 feet between me and the ring. Hannibal was put through a table and Kevin Nash walked out to the Wolf Pack theme. Wonder if he'll make it to the ppv tomorrow in Orlando on time?

    GNW in Thunder Bay... Down a man?



    I just saw the youtube footage of yesterday's press conference here in Thunder Bay.
    Seems it got a bit out of hand, and legend Terry Funk was taken to the local hospital. How will this effect tonight's event?

    I have no idea

    Visit their youtube for the footage

    This should make for a wicked night tonight here in Thunder Bay.

    My Thoughts on TNA Impact for May 13th 2010

    originally posted on my blog on May 14th 2010

    I used screen capture for this post


    Seems iTunes Canada loves me again this week, as last night's episode was available this morning for download. At this point though they have not gotten the May 3rd episode. Their listing jumps from April 26th to May 13th 2010 and for anyone who wants to know how long it takes to do a review, I started at 7:30am.

    Now I know the episodes have titles just like Buffy/Angel/Forever Knight/Sex and the City but I use the air dates cause 1) most people search online by air dates and 2) dude, most times your titles suck. (it's good to be back isn't it)
    To the audience member screaming alone, you know why your "Bishoff sucks" chant didn't work for ya, because it's better to play in a group then play with yourself. That and the faster we let Bishoff do what he's going to do the faster we get past the filler and on to the show... I love the smell of coffee and sarcasm in the morning, goes so well with my complexion.

    AJ AJ AJ... we've talked about the cufflinks in the ears... dude, too big and you know I've never been one for diamonds I like pearls. Pearls are nice and less... sparkly. Men should wear Onyx or Jet.
    Okay you know what, just cause I'm in a good mood this morning, I will actually mention Jeff Hardy just this once, but um dude, please stop with the dry humping entrance.

    Knock Outs match Wilde vs Tara... Tara won with a kick as Wilde was going for a cross body.

    Someone cue the garlic juice... for the tears that what's her handle was trying to cry... Universal Studios for freals sake, you would think you had some better acting .... nice set up though for the storyline.

    Kendrick vs Douglas Williams. Kendrick still hasn't gotten decent theme music, dude you need to pencil that in okay... Williams made a speech about it being non-title as Kendrick jumped him in the corner with a series of forearms to the back. Williams fought back with a hard push then a forearm of his own rocking Kendrick. Tossing Kendrick then to the far corner, running full steam at him. Williams then followed with a snapmare but that only got him a two count. Kendrick then started to throw hard punches at him before going off the ropes but was stopped cold by a shoulder block. Williams then used a drop knee to get the slight advantage over Kendrick, but Kendrick came back at him with a few kicks. Kendrick then off the ropes with a flying forearm/crossbody combo but only got a near fall. Williams then rolled out of the ring, and pulled Kendrick off his feet slamming his knee into the ring apron. Back in the center of the ring, and Williams slapped on a half Boston crab. Kaz then came to the ring to collect his belt, which was just enough distraction to let Kendrick roll up on Williams for the win.

    Generation Me vs Matt Morgan the evil druid... suppose I can't call him that anymore since he dropped the robe... in a handicap match. Max and Jeremy jumped him as he was entering the ring. No good, he tossed them off like children and then delivered a double running clothesline that sent them flying. Morgan then grabbed the blonde one and gave him a hard vertical slam before going after the brunette with a nasty running boot to the face. Still like to know what is it with wrestlers and long greasy hair? He then grabbed the microphone and blah blah blahed for a bit before grabbing the blonde one tossing him out of the ring and Samoa Joe came out to the ring giving Morgan a muscle buster. Then Nash and his crew came down to the ring, cashing in the fest or fired tag belts case.

    Rob Terry vs Abyss. or you know not cause Abyss was being arrested. Snooze. Bored Now.
    Okay here's the thing with Orlando Jordan, no one is debating your talent. We are debating your gimmick. Dude, it blows goat backwards. All puns intended. Just drop the gimmick and wrestle.
    Tomko came to the ring for a match then with Jordan. I happen to like Tomko. He picked up Jordan slamming him into the corner then delivered a nice spinebuster. Jordan countered with a double leg take down, then proceeded to deliver a few fists to the jaw. Both back to their feet, Tomko moved out of the way as Jordan went face first into the turnbuckle. Tomko then with a lovely powerful over head toss. Jordan then shoved Tomko into to the corner and followed up with a drop kick. He continued then to stomp on Tomko, getting him on the second rope for a rear chin lock. Jordan then with a short snap on Tomko before a knee to the back. He continued to work on the neck and back of Tomko with another chinlock. Tomko back to his feet powered out with an elbow. Jordan leap frogged over Tomko but he got it with an extreme short clothesline from Tomko. Jordan then countered with a backbreaker. Jordan followed with a guillotine sleeper for the win.

    Knock Outs match .... Sarita vs Tara in a revenge match....Tara won with a cheap shot.

    RVD vs Hardy vs A.J. Styles... non title... you all know I am not a fan of either RVD or Hardy, just do not like watching them at all. So.... but Styles goofing around with the dude at ringside was funny, very funny. And Styles got the pin with the ropes... er um I mean I saw nothing but a win.
    Because of the interruption of Mr. Anderson on Hardy, they had a small brawl at the end of the show.
    OOOOHHHH does this mean Nash will be here tomorrow with the tag belts for the GNW event ?

    And the MotorCityMachine Guns! in a four way tag match. Dude, I hate trying to call matches like this. You know, maybe if you guys didn't freal around at the start of the show with so much filler, you could have had two separate matches for the tag division. vs Team 3D vs Ink Inc vs Beer Money Inc.
    Alex Shelley and James Storm started off. Okay Mr. Shelley what colour are your tights now? One camera has them looking blue and orange, one camera has them looking purple and an off orange. Someone needs to check the white balance on the cameras seriously.
    They started with a collar tie up, Storm pushing Shelley into the corner. Shelley came back with a series of forearms to the face getting himself out of the corner. Yay! Storm then tossed him into the ropes but Shelley went to the mat for a slip through and roll away. Chris Sabin tagged in grabbing Storm and throwing him out of the ring. The Guns! then delivered double mule kicks to Robert Roode as he came into the ring. Beauty! They then did their trademark suicide dive (Sabin diving through the ropes Shelley holding them) which is impossible to get a screen capture of I have to say. Did get a screen capture of Mr. Shelley celebrating the move. Sabin then rolled Storm back into the ring, but only got a two count. Damn it. Storm fought back with a thumb to the eye and just tossing Sabin into the corner. Devon then blindtagged himself in, as Roode tagged in. Roode came at him with a punch but it got him nowhere. Devon then took control with a series of punches. They then traded blows for a moment. Hang on, are your tights half blue and half purple? Roode took control with a knee to the gut, before Devon used a scoop slam/power slam for a near fall, Shelley in for a save with what I think was a ping to the temple. Brother Ray then tagged in, and they used a double team move on Roode. Shanon Moore blindtagged himself in when Ray got too close to the rope, flying over him in a crossbody to land on Roode, only got a two count. Mr. Shelley what the hoovers was that you crossing yourself dude... I didn't realize there were vampires in the ImpactZone that day. It looked like Moore had control of the issue, but Roode got him with a wristlock then a kick to the gut sending Moore into the corner then out of the ring. Storm continued to do a beat down on Moore outside of the ring. Back in the ring, and Roode stompping on Moore, just before Storm tagged in and they used a double team back elbow on him. Beer Money then went for a wicked looking reversed backbreaker ... guess you call it a gut wrencher... Storm going for a cover but Brother Ray breaking it up. Storm then used an upper cut knocking Moore back down as Roode tagged in. Roode then with a snapmare on Moore before slapping on a chinlock. Moore fought out with a series of elbows then off the ropes for a sunset flip but only got a near fall. Roode answered with a hard running clothesline, but only got a near fall. Another tag to Storm, who used a few knees to the guts then went right back to working on the back and neck of Moore with another chinlock. Moore once again fought out with more elbows, then used a standing bulldog on Storm. Roode tagged in, Jesse Neal tagged in. Neal with a series of short clotheslines and a large back body drop before turning his attention to the Guns! in the corner sending them off the apron with more clotheslines. Neal then used a frontal swing slam. (I'm not sure what else to call it) Only got him a two count before Storm ran in for the save. BMI then used a double team move on Neal, as Brother Ray tagged himself in with double running clotheslines on BMI. Neal then used a schoolboy roll up on Ray but the Guns! in for the save. Guns! with their trademark stereo kicks to Ray, Devon then in with a series of punches to both Shelley and Sabin, before Shelley with a drop toe hold and Sabin with a standing flying elbow to the back. NICE! They then followed it with their trademark double teamed basement dropkick/semi-pull back. Sabin then with the stepladder dropkick on Storm in the corner knocking him off the ring apron. Sabin then on the apron was going for his wicked kick on Roode but Roode swept the leg out and dragged him down hard on the ring apron face first. Is Sabin okay? Slingshot clothesline by Shelley then on Roode. Back in the ring, Neal was pounding on the back of Devon in the corner before Ray came in with a hard punch. Neal then on the shoulders of Ray, Devon off the top turnbuckle for a flying short clothesline, going for the cover but Moore in for the save. Moore got planted in the top turnbuckle for his trouble. Ray then slapped Neal and charged at Moore in the corner, Moore got out of the way as Ray went face first into the turnbuckle. Moore off the top rope with a twisting neck breaker, Neal then with a gore for the win.

    Dear TNA.... Another Open Letter

    Dear TNA:

    I just visited the voting area for the top contenders for the belt.  
    No, I did not vote.    I did not vote because you have got to be kidding me on the choices. 
    Who the hell wants to see the same old same old and the only new name you put in there is Rob Terry.... that's a bloody joke right?
    You say you are listening to the fans,  really? No I mean really?   Are you reading the comments the other fans are leaving on the official Spike website cause every one of them feels the same way I do.  Betrayed, Disgusted, Let Down, and Ignored. 
    You know who you SHOULD HAVE PUT ON THE VOTING LIST  Eric Young! damn it!
    So that is my vote for the next number one contender.  Eric Young.  

    Signed Ardeth Blood

    Raw for May 10th 2010


    Putting Vickie as the general manager on a weekly basis was a good idea. Finally, getting rid of the guest host is long over due.

    Jericho vs David Hart Smith. Jericho slapped Smith who answered back with a series of hard punches and a kick. Smith used his trademark vertical suplex next, before going for a leg drop but missed. Jericho then had a running boot for him. Jericho then started to work on the shoulder, adding a low drop kick. Jericho had him in a choke hold in the middle of the ring. Smith battled out, and had a large clothesline and shoulder block combo before a belly to belly toss. Smith followed with a scoop slam but only got a two count. Jericho used a back elbow to get Smith off his feet. Smith locked on a sharpshooter but Jericho broke on the ropes. Jericho used his codebreaker for the win.

    R-Truth vs Regal. Regal started off with a few punches and a kick backing Truth into the corner. He whipped Truth into the far corner, but Truth did a float over catching Regal with a scissors kick. Then the Colons ran into the ring and the match was thrown out.

    Zack Ryder vs Evan Bourne. Ryder started with a high knee to the chest of Bourne. He kept beating down on Bourne for the first minute but Bourne bounced off the ropes with a standing hurricanrana on Ryder. Bourne got a two count, before heading towards the ropes again. Ryder used his rough ryder but only got a near fall. He had Bourne on the bottom rope again choking him out with his knee. Bourne managed to get out and side step a running splash, then landed Bourne used a running jaw breaker on Ryder in the corner. This was the set up for airbourne which he used for the win.

    Then John Cena was in the ring yammering on like a boring boring .... ohhhh Sheamus came out and spiced it up. Looking hotter then hell in a bathtub.

    Kidd vs Miz. Miz started it with a go behind and a hard forearm to the back of Kidd. He followed it with a claw to the face pushing Kidd down to the mat, then kicking him. Kidd was tossed out of the ring. Kidd used a shoulder block on Miz from the ring apron, then jumped over the top rope in a sunset flip style move for the win.

    Chaos then happened as all the NXT rookies went against a four man tag team. I've said before trying to call a match like this is just impossible. The rookies won.

    Batista vs Mark Henry... well not really. Batista used a chair and the match was thrown.

    Orton vs Edge/DiBiase in a handicap match. DiBiase started it off with a collar tie up that Orton turned into a side head lock. Orton went off the ropes with a shoulder block on DiBiase. Edge tagged himself in, using a hangman. He continued then to stomp on Orton before getting him on the second rope for a brief choke out. Edge pulled Orton into the corner where they doubled teamed him for a moment before DiBiase tagged in. DiBiase from outside the ring was working on the neck and upper half of Orton. Edge tagged back in. Edge was going for a suplex but Orton blocked it, Edge then turned around and delivered a hard boot to the jaw. Quick tag. Orton fighting back with a few forearms but was caught with a clothesline from DiBiase. DiBiase then had him in the middle of the ring with a chin lock. Orton to his feet, and a bounce off the ropes but it was stopped by DiBiase. Orton did manage to deliver a few clotheslines to DiBiase, and a back elbow to Edge before going back to DiBiase for a scoop slam. Orton sent Edge flying off the ring apron then turned his attention back to DiBiase with a backbreaker. Orton used his RKO for the win.

    My Thoughts on TNA Impact for May 3rd 2010-Highlights



    Yeah I know it's a full week late. I have been searching between iTunes Canada and the official Spike TV website since last Tuesday morning. Spike had it at noon today.

    Remember my Spudguns, if you didn't hear it already, it's official IMPACT IS MOVING BACK TO THURSDAYS STARTING THIS WEEK! So from what I understand, there will be NO episode tonight (May 10th Monday) But there will be one on this Thursday May 13th
    I hate watching the show this way, cause it's like watching stop animation there are so many digital mess ups and buffering and ..... ggrrr!
    Jay Lethal... oh my! Did he finally drop the frealing gimmick? That would be nice... um Jay thinks he's the Nature Boy now.... loud groan. Well, at lest he looks hot in a suit. Finally he got rid of the sparkly moo-moo! I can get behind that I can totally. Dude! what the hell? It keeps skipping... serious. The first segment with Lethal kept jumping to the next segment.
    Hey did I ever tell you that my ex Dargo looked just like Robert Roode..... Everytime someone else logs on to the website it causes a traffic jam and craps out the show for me. Who's the security hottie with the tattoos?

    (Dude! when iTunes Canada gets this for download I will re-do this post. This is just a mess with the stopping and skipping and ggrrr)

    Kendrick/Williams vs Jessie Neal/Shanon Moore (Ink Inc) .... Jessie Neal won with a spear on Kendrick

    Knock Out tag team Beautiful People vs Tara/Sereta/Wilde... BP's win with a cheat of a double teamed DDT

    A.J. Styles vs Abyss.... Styles won with a distraction from Flair and Chelsie

    Wolfe vs RVD....RVD won and keeps his championship

    And the MotorCityMachine Guns! They were in a 3 way tag match against Beer Money Inc and Team 3D.... Sabin was spring boarding off the top ropes in this amazing flips that must have gotten a height of at lest 6 feet (off the top rope which would have put it what...in the rafters) Mr. Shelley blue and orange???? You know what with the bad colouring on this website and the stopping digital scrambledness of it... did I see right was Mr. Shelley bouncing on the second rope like it was a playground toy? Nash and Hall came down got the match thrown out, then Mr. Yummy...er Eric Young is with Nash's crew now... and dude, blue and orange tights really???

    Smackdown for May 7th 2010-Hightlights

    Have I mentioned lately how I really hate long hair on men... Drew McIntrye yeah I'm talking to you right now.
    He did a beat down on Matt Hardy to drive home the feud they've had gone now for months. Hardy was left complaining about his shoulder. Okay, you know, the wrestling business is chalked fill of injuries real and fake. There was a time when I could tell a story injury from the real thing, I admit I can't anymore. There is just too many times an injury is used as a plot thickener and too many times a real injury happens and the camera operators are not told to cut. Either the wrestlers have gotten acting lessons in the last year or I have been watching too much wrestling as everything is blending into one.

    MVP
    vs Luke Gallows.  Gallows started with a hard right hand to the jaw of MVP. MVP retaliated with a series of punches of his own, then was whipped into the corner, but managed a float over. Gallows ran then into a clothesline from MVP.  Only got a two count. Another series of fists from MVP before sending Gallows into the corner hard. MVP went for a running boot but Gallows side stepped causing MVP to go out of the ring hitting the rails. Gallows followed with some more punches to the guts before tossing MVP back into the ring. He softened up MVP with some high knees before using a double underhook over head toss. Gallows followed this up with a reversed bear hug. MVP fought out but was whipped into the corner. Gallows went back to the reversed bear hug, once again whipping MVP into the corner.  This time MVP battled out, catching him with a few flying clotheslines, then set up for his ballin elbow. There was a fuss outside the ring then as Mysterio came down to beat on CM Punk who'd been at ringside. This was the distraction MVP needed to use his trademark Play of the Day for the win. 

    Divas match... Kelly Kelly/Tiffany vs McCool/Layla... well you know I just don't care.

    Kofi Kingston vs Dolph Ziggler.  First Round of the Intercontinental championship tournament. They started with a collar tie up, Ziggler turning it into a side head lock. Kofi was starting to battle out but Ziggler bounced off the ropes with a hard shoulder block knocking Kofi down. Kofi then had a few leap frogs over Ziggler as he went back to the ropes a few times, Kofi ending it with flying back elbow. Only got a two count. Ziggler threw Kofi at the ropes thinking he'd gone out of the ring, but Kofi clung on to them bouncing back landing a flying clothesline on Ziggler. Ziggler out of ring, Kofi suicide dived on him. Back in the ring, and Ziggler caught Kofi with a leg drop on the back of the neck as he was climbing back in.  It sent Kofi right back out to land hard on the floor. Back in the ring, and Ziggler had a choke hold on Kofi, then used a pumphandle slam but only got a two count. Ziggler then had Kofi tangled in the ropes as he slapped on another choke hold using the second rope as extra weight. Kofi used a series of back elbows to get out of it. Drop kick from Ziggler but only got a near fall. Ziggler applied the camel clutch, but Kofi powered out for a moment. Ziggler with a large high elbow but only a near fall. Ziggler took the knee out from under Kofi, then went back to a modified sleeper working on the neck of Kofi.  Kofi then somehow managed to get a rolling -almost sideways grapevine but only got a two count Ziggler then planted Kofi face first with a front slam but still only a two count. Ziggler went back to his rear chin lock-sleeper. Kofi used a jawbreaker to get out of the move, Ziggler hitting the top turnbuckle, Kofi then going for aerial moves, before landing his boom drop. Ziggler went back to his sleeper hold, but Kofi stumbled to the ropes breaking the hold. Kofi nailed his trouble in paradise for the win.

    Christian vs Cody Rhodes. First Round in the Intercontinental championship tournament.  Rhodes started with a go behind pounding hard on the upper back of Christian before turning it into a side head lock. Christian was going off the ropes but Rhodes caught him with a hard shoulder block  he only got a near fall. Rhodes then used a kick and a punch combo getting Christian down to the mat. Christian got back to his feet, leap frogging over Rhodes and delivering a flying cross body from a standing position but it only got him a two count.

    A battle royal Smackdown vs Raw. These are one of the worst to try to cover. Team Smackdown was Rey Mysterio/Kane/Drew McIntyre/R-Truth/Shad  the Team Raw was MVP/Mark Henry/Santino/Ted DiBiasi/Yushi Katshu (sorry I've never seen this guy's name printed before forgive me not knowing it) this was chaos.

Morrison used a side russian leg sweep. Swagger then used his gutwrench powerbomb for the win.

    Dolph Ziggler vs Hornswaggle.   That's just wrong.  Ziggler got knocked out of the ring, and Hornswaggle started to toss his shoes at him and his hat keeping Ziggler out of the ring during the ten count.  Hornswaggle won because of a count out.

    This was one of the best WWE shows I've seen in months. The fact they did not use any guest host and just stuck to matches was a good move.  The matches were in the most part solid with cleaver "match ups" in almost all regards (the Hornswaggle match sucked)  As I have been saying for the last few months, I am really hoping that a nice long feud (6 months tops) comes about between Orton and Sheamus.  That would be a pairing that would make me happy.  Both wrestlers are technically sound, both have decent promo skills, both have a solid footing in their roles.
