TNA No Surrender opened with the playing on the U.S National anthem as it’s the fourth year anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the Twin Towers.
Video played starting off looking at how the U.S will show no surrender in their war against terrorism before the video turned to show how the TNA roster will show no surrender in their fight to prove they are the best, in their fight to win TNA titles and in their fight to headline TNA Bound for Glory. Video included clips of everyone in tonight’s Total Elimination Main Event plus TNA champion, James Storm before finishing on a close up of the top contender to the TNA title, the undefeated Samoa Joe!
Jeremy Borash and Shane Douglas in the studio overlooking the arena welcomed everyone to the last Pay per View before the biggest night of the year TNA Bound for Glory and the last event before TNA’s big move to SPIKE T.V on Saturday 1st October! Last night for the TNA talent roster to impress. Borash and Douglas hyped tonight’s card which would be headlined by a huge Main Event, a Total Elimination match - a standard 10 man Elimination tag team match until 1 entire team is eliminated then if there are more than 1 member of the remaining team still standing they would then compete to decide the winner of the match. TONIGHT’S MAIN EVENT| TOTAL ELIMINATION| CHRIS SABIN, JEFF HARDY, LOW KI & GREATNESS (AUSTIN ARIES & RODERICK STRONG) V BOBBY ROODE, CHRIS HARRIS, CHRISTOPHER DANIELS, CM PUNK & NIGEL McGUINNESS!
Borash sent it to the announcers Mike Tenay and Don Callis who were sitting at ringside, Tenay reminded everyone that also tonight for the first time TNA champion, James Storm and TNA Championship Series winner, Samoa Joe will share the ring for the first time when they sign the contract to make their TNA championship match at TNA Bound for Glory official. Tenay also confirmed that tonight’s Main Event had no time limit while all other matches had a 20 minute time limit. MATCH 1| 4 WAY| BRIAN KENDRICK V DOUG WILLIAMS V ALEX SHELLEY W. ANGELINA LOVE V EDDIE COLON W. NORMAN SMILEY| 4 men who are looking to push on with their career and make that jump up to the next level here in TNA. Williams’ is looking to bounce back after a disappointing TNA Championship Series. Callis noted on commentary that Brian Kendrick would have probably expected to have more success so far than he has while both Shelley and Colon are still relatively new to TNA they have both impressed on occasion. Good match, fun way to kick off the Pay per View. Fast paced with two or more men always in the ring going at it, Kendrick came close to victory following his Slice Bread No.2 on Shelley but Colon saved the match.
Angelina Love got caught trying to interfere in the match to help Shelley at one point so the match official ejected Love from ringside, Shelley was not happy and left the match to scream at Love like he did recently on TNA IMPACT on for Kendrick to take Shelley out with a dive at ringside but while both men were out of the ring, Doug Williams managed to spike Colon with a Tombstone pile driver for the win. RESULT| DOUG WILLIAMS BEAT BRIAN KENDRICK, ALEX SHELLEY & EDDIE COLON
Doug Williams celebrated afterwards as Mike Tenay praised Williams’ attitude since his poor showing in the TNA Championship Series. Brian Kendrick was sitting at ringside when Angelina Love placed her hands on his shoulders and thanked Kendrick for stepping in before quickly making her way backstage when she saw Shelley getting back to his feet. Things are not looking good between Alex Shelley and his partner in crime Angelina Love.
Christopher Daniels the first ever TNA champion was shown arriving at the arena earlier today. Daniels’ has not been seen since losing out in the finals of the TNA Championship Series to Samoa Joe, before tonight’s Main Event we would hear from Christopher Daniels also concerning Chris Sabin’s comments where Sabin is determined to earn Daniels’ respect.
Ron Killings was standing by backstage with TNA Reporter, Don West when Jeff Jarrett interrupted ahead of his match with Killings momentarily. Jarrett told Killings that he requested this match tonight with TNA management because the history books shows that Jarrett has beat Killings 4 times but the that doesn’t tell the whole story so Jarrett wanted to do the right thing and give Killings a fair shot but warned Killings before he left that Killings wasn’t facing the same man he faced before… MATCH 2| RON KILLINGS V JEFF JARRETT| Jarrett does hold 4 victories over Ron Killings and in the early days of TNA if Jarrett hadn’t screwed over Killings, victories over Jarrett would have helped Killings TNA career and made a big difference. Jarrett opened up recently about changing his outlook on TNA and wants to help TNA. Good clean wrestling match, Killings seemed cautious at times to trust Jarrett when it came to clean breaks etc. Killings who is looking to build some momentum came close on a couple of occasions especially after a sit out face buster but Jarrett managed to pick the victory cleanly for the first time over Killings after he avoided Killings Axe kick before dropping Killings with his Stroke. Jarrett helped Killings to his feet afterwards and while the two men didn’t shake hands, you could tell there was respect between the two men after a hard fought fair fight which Jarrett won on this night. RESULT| JEFF JARRETT BEAT RON KILLINGS VIA PIN FALL
Chris Harris was shown backstage along with his fellow members of Wildcat Wrestling Academy (Cliff Compton, Eddie Colon, Ryan O’Reilly & Shawn Daivari) and Norman Smiley discussing their tactics for tonight.
A quick video aired looking back over the history between Jerry Lynn and Petey Williams ahead of their match up next. Lynn has previously been critical of Williams’ attitude and use of the Canadian Destroyer while spectacular Lynn believes it’s too dangerous. Recently Lynn saved his partner Amazing Red from being attacked by Williams and pinned Williams’ last month at TNA Sacrifice before Petey Williams cost Lynn and Red a tag match to New Millennium on TNA IMPACT… MATCH 3| JERRY LYNN V PETEY WILLIAMS W. COACH D’AMORE| First ever one on one meeting between Jerry Lynn and Petey Williams here tonight but recently Williams’ has lost to Lynn’s partner Amazing Red and was pinned by Lynn during a 6 man at TNA Sacrifice last month. Another good match between Lynn a former multi weight World champion and the greatest wrestler to ever come out of Canada according to Coach D’Amore. Williams the longer the match went on started taking Lynn lightly and was teasing the Canadian Destroyer before changing his mind and it came back to haunt Williams after Lynn countered another casual Canadian Destroyer attempt by dropping Williams on his head with a Kryptonite Krunch which hurt Williams long enough for Lynn to pick up the win. RESULT| JERRY LYNN BEAT PETEY WILLIAMS VIA PIN FALL
Coach D’Amore was in shock, he started banging his hands against the ring apron in frustration before actually entering the ring and confronting Jerry Lynn. Lynn had enough and grabbed hold of D’Amore before backing him into the corner but that allowed Petey Williams’ time to recover and to jump Lynn from behind but as always Amazing Red was not far behind to save his partner, Red cleared the ring of Williams’ as D’Amore bailed. Lynn and Red were challenging D’Amore and Williams to get back into the ring when Eric Young floored both Lynn & Red from behind much to the delight of Coach D’Amore. Petey Williams entered the ring and Williams and Young together put the boots to the first ever TNA Tag Team champions. Tenay wondered whether this was why D’Amore and Bobby Roode were talking about last month at TNA Sacrifice. TNA officials finally came out and ordered Eric Young, Petey Williams and Coach D’Amore from the ring…
Mike Tenay and Don Callis spoke about Eric Young jumping Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn as they were helped back to their feet by TNA officials saying it seems that Coach D’Amore has acquired the services of the ‘Hired Gun’ Eric Young…
TNA Reporter, Don West was standing by backstage with Coach D’Amore, Eric Young and Petey Williams. Williams actually spoke instead of D’Amore saying that these days there is nothing special about beating Jerry Lynn but beating the first ever TNA Tag Team champions and ending the career of Lynn is something to be proud off. Eric Young just stared down the camera like a mad man as D’Amore took over saying he is always on the lookout for talent so D’Amore approached Bobby Roode and they discussed Eric Young before Roode persuaded Young to trust D’Amore on the promise that D’Amore would make Young and Williams the most successful tag team of all time and they are going to start by taking out the first ever TNA Tag Team champions, Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn!
TNA Tag Team champions, GREATNESS (Austin Aries & Roderick Strong) and their teammates for tonight’s Main Event Chris Sabin, Jeff Hardy & Low Ki were all shown gathered together getting ready for tonight’s Total Elimination match. MATCH 4| BROTHERS IN ARMS (BG & KIP JAMES) V NEW MILLENNIUM (FRANKIE KAZARIAN & MICHAEL SHANE) W. TRACI BROOKS| Brothers in Arms were angry tonight after failing to become the TNA Tag Team champions in their last match at TNA Sacrifice and having had to listen to New Millennium disrespect them for weeks now. No pre match mic work from the multi time Tag Team champions straight to business jumping Kazarian & Shane before the bell until the match official managed to regain control. Good match BG & Kip worked better with Kazarian & Shane than they did against GREATNESS. Both teams with a lot to prove in this match, both wanting to stay in the TNA Tag Team title picture. After winning their first 5 matches Brothers in Arms have now lost back to back matches against two of the top teams in the division setting back their hopes of adding the TNA Tag Team titles to their collection, finish came after Kazarian managed to dump Kip over the top rope and after Shane cracked BG with a Super kick, Kazarian planted him with his Wave of the Future for the 3 count. New Millennium may be itching closer to their first shot at the TNA Tag Team titles! RESULT| NEW MILLENNIUM (FRANKIE KAZARIAN & MICHAEL SHANE) BEAT BROTHERS IN ARMS (BG & KIP JAMES) VIA PIN FALL
TNA Reporter, Don West was standing by backstage with TNA T.V champion, CM Punk. We have not heard from Punk since he ruined the Main Event at TNA Sacrifice last month on Pay per View. Since then Punk has been jumped by Low Ki and has learned he will face James Storm on the first TNA IMPACT on SPIKE T.V. West wanted Punk’s thoughts. Punk told Don West that when it comes to James Storm he’s got exactly what he wants and he couldn’t have planned it better on the first night on a new network with potentially more fans than ever watching and just weeks from the biggest event in TNA history, TNA Bound for Glory – Punk is going to beat and humiliate James Storm in the middle of the ring, maybe to the point where Samoa Joe decides that he would rather challenge for the TNA T.V title than the TNA title. Punk turned his attention to Low Ki and told Ki that he only had himself to blame because Low Ki struck him first, CM Punk is not someone to mess with. Punk also heard Low Ki’s comments about how Punk doesn’t belong at his level, Punk laughed it off before saying at the end of tonight we would all see who doesn’t belong when CM Punk is the left the last man standing! MATCH 5| ABYSS V RHINO| Prior to the match Rhino was shown telling Jim Mitchell to stay backstage during his match against Mitchell’s former ‘Monster’, Abyss. Rhino the ‘Man Beast’ former World champion may be one of only a few men who is not intimidated by Abyss. Rhino’s intentions, goal was clear to put Abyss down like an old useless pet. Entertaining brawl, which the match official struggled to control at times. Jim Mitchell was shown repeatedly during the match watching from a corridor backstage. Abyss scored a near fall after countering a pile driver with a back body drop before smashing Rhino with a high impact Choke slam but Rhino kicked out and came back shortly after with a near fall of his own following an impressive spine buster to the big man. Abyss seemed to be on his way to victory after catching Rhino with his Black Hole slam when Rhino attempted his Gore, as Abyss lifted Rhino on the big screen Jim Mitchell was shown laying in a puddle of his own blood before Chris Hero was shown unwrapping a chain from around his arm before casually dropping the chain beside Mitchell and walking off. Abyss dropped Rhino and went off to attend to his Father figure. RESULT| RHINO BEAT ABYSS VIA COUNT OUT
Rhino despite now working for Jim Mitchell stayed in the ring to accept the count out victory before heading backstage himself. Backstage a number of TNA officials and paramedics were checking on Jim Mitchell as Abyss showed up wanting to get to Mitchell, Abyss despite his problems with Mitchell recently has clearly not stopped caring for him and Abyss dropped to his knees and cradled Mitchell’s head in his arms and lap while screaming out in heartbreak. A TNA official asked the cameraman to leave the scene.
Jeremy Borash and Shane Douglas back in the studio were concerned about the condition of Jim Mitchell. Borash couldn’t believe what Chris Hero had done to Jim Mitchell. Nothing Chris Hero does surprises Shane Douglas but Douglas knows that Chris Hero is going to have hell to pay for his actions! Up next former TNA Tag Team champions, Zero Gravity (Matt Sydal & Paul London) return! MATCH 6| ZERO GRAVITY (MATT SYDAL & PAUL LONDON) V WILDCAT WRESTLING ACADEMY (CLIFF COMPTON & RYAN O’REILLY) W. NORMAN SMILEY| Zero Gravity making their first appearance since failing to regain the TNA Tag Team titles in June at TNA Slammiversary in an incredible Ladder match against GREATNESS (Austin Aries & Roderick Strong). Zero Gravity have been recovering from minor injuries but also taking their time because they know that they cannot challenge for the TNA Tag Team titles while GREATNESS are still the champions after GREATNESS won their rivalry. London & Sydal were on top form tonight against the bigger Wildcat Wrestling Academy, impressing everyone as they always seem to do before putting O’Reilly away following their 450 Splash from London followed up by a Shooting Star press from Sydal. Zero Gravity are back and willing to wait for their shot at once again becoming the TNA Tag Team champions. RESULT| ZERO GRAVITY (MATT SYDAL & PAUL LONDON) BEAT WILDCAT WRESTLING ACADEMY (CLIFF COMPTON & RYAN O’REILLY)
Brent Albright & Lance Archer slid into the ring after the bell Archer nearly took London’s head off his shoulders with a running boot to the face while Albright grabbed Sydal from behind before dropping Sydal on his head with a German suplex. Albright & Archer have been relatively quiet since they lost their spots in Heroes for Villains and with the TNA Championship Series going on. Tenay wondered whether they had reformed. TNA officials who weren’t still checking on Jim Mitchell were out to get Albright & Archer from the ring before checking on the fallen former champions who have had their return ruined by Brent Albright & Lance Archer but the announcers wondered why! HIGHLIGHTS| 26.08.05| TNA IMPACT| MAIN EVENT| TNA CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES| FINALS| SAMOA JOE BEAT CHRISTOPHER DANIELS VIA PIN FALL…
Jeremy Borash was now in the middle of the ring which was set up for the contract signing for the TNA championship match for TNA Bound for Glory live next month on Pay per View! Borash hyped the Main Event as the ‘Tennessee Cowboy’ the reigning and defending TNA champion, James Storm against the unstoppable, unbeatable, undefeated, TNA Championship Series winner, Samoa Joe!
Samoa Joe the top contender came out first, Joe was just wearing black shorts with a black t-shirt. Joe has an aura about him, people can’t take their eyes of him. Joe entered the ring ignored a handshake attempt from Borash, Joe didn’t even acknowledge Borash, Joe just went and leaned in the corner and awaited the arrival of the TNA champion. Storm was out next to a huge ovation from the crowd. Storm carrying the TNA title was wearing a customised cowboy hat with jeans and shirt. Storm entered the ring placed the TNA title on the podium, shook Borash’s hand and stood his ground in the middle of the ring not taking his eyes of Joe the entire time.
Borash asked Joe to join him and Storm behind the podium for the official contract signing. Joe didn’t want any part of the contract signing and wasn’t paying any attention to Borash, who asked Joe again to join them after Joe ignored them again Storm grabbed the microphone and ordered Joe to bring his ass over! Fans erupted and that got Joe’s attention, there was tension in the air now. Joe stormed over to the podium and pushed the podium over sending the TNA title flying Storm wasn’t happy and it seemed like Storm and Joe were going to go at it before even signing the contract but TNA security entered the ring and calmed both men down. TNA Security decided to stay in the ring behind Borash once things were calmer. Borash nervously asked both men to sign the contract, then they could address one another both Joe and Storm went for the contract at the same time which added to the tension, Joe snatched the contract from Storm keeping the security guards on their toes. Joe signed the contract before tossing the contract at Storm. What was becoming noticeable that despite his hostile attitude towards Storm, Joe hadn’t looked Storm in the eye Storm signed the contract and handed it back to Borash before picking up his TNA title of the mat. Storm told Joe to keep his muzzle on while he spoke, Joe was on edge bouncing on his toes with his eyes locked on the TNA title over Storm’s shoulder. Storm told Joe to look him in the eye while he spoke but Joe was focused solely on the TNA title. Storm started to talk telling Joe he was in over his head and at TNA Bound for Glory, Storm stopped again to tell Joe to look him in the eye like a man. Storm continued by saying Joe would crumble under the pressure of the bright lights of the big show when Storm knocks Joe out with a Super kick. Joe wasn’t listening, Storm had enough and told pointed in Joe’s face telling him to stop looking at his title and to look him in the eye Joe barged past Storm and exited the ring. We are still yet to hear from Samoa Joe but his attitude says so much. Joe not looking back or showing too much emotion just made his way back up the ramp knowing his TNA title match was now official. James Storm wasn’t happy, seemed to be complaining in the ring about Joe’s attitude. Don Callis praised Joe for getting inside Storm’s head so easily without saying a word and Callis believes Joe was able to do it so easily was because Storm is worried about defending the TNA title against Samoa Joe next month at TNA Bound for Glory and who could blame him, questioned Callis. SATURDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2005| TNA IMPACT DEBUTS ON SPIKE T.V! SATURDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2005| TNA IMPACT| MAIN EVENT| TNA CHAMPION V TNA T.V CHAMPION| JAMES STORM V CM PUNK! MATCH 7| MONTY BROWN V KEN PHOENIX W. ALEXIS LAREE| Ken Phoenix was still hurting following the beating he received on TNA IMPACT this past Thursday at the hands of Low Ki. Monty Brown the former leader of Alpha Male Enterprise and former TNA Tag Team champion has let everyone know that he will not apologise for his past but wants to put it behind him and focus on the future where Brown wants to prove he is the ‘Alpha Male’ here in TNA wrestling. Brown made quick work of Phoenix and after sending Phoenix flying across the ring with his Pounce, Brown finished Phoenix off with his Alpha Bomb. Following the match Monty Brown’s former partner Elix Skipper returned we haven’t seen Skipper since Brown left Skipper a bloody mess, Brown blamed the injured Skipper for AME losing the TNA Tag Team titles. Skipper walked out on to the stage and just stared down at Brown letting Brown who looked a little worried that his past sins were coming back to haunt him, that Elix Skipper was back. RESULT| MONTY BROWN BEAT KEN PHOENIX VIA PIN FALL
Ahead of tonight’s Main Event, Jeremy Borash announced that TNA wrestling would holding a press conference on Friday 30th September 2005 the day before the TNA IMPACT debut on SPIKE T.V where the TNA Bound for Glory card will be announced! MATCH 8| MAIN EVENT| TOTAL ELIMINATION| TNA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS| GREATNESS (AUSTIN ARIES & RODERICK STRONG), CHRIS SABIN, JEFF HARDY & LOW KI V TNA T.V CHAMPION| CM PUNK, BOBBY ROODE, CHRIS HARRIS, CHRISTOPHER DANIELS & NIGEL McGUINNESS| Rules of the match – No time limits, 10 man elimination tag team match once an entire team is eliminated the remaining men if more than 1 will then face off to determine the winner of the match.
Great Main Event which was given a lot of time. Low Ki had to be controlled even before the bell because he wanted to get his hands on CM Punk for costing him the TNA title last month, while Punk was more than happy to avoid Low Ki. So many stories in the match to keep an eye on Low Ki wanting revenge on CM Punk, Christopher Daniels’ trying to rebound after losing out in the finals of the TNA Championship Series while Chris Sabin was looking to earn the respect of Daniels. Chris Harris trying to break his Pay per View losing streak, Jeff Hardy is trying to cement his place in the top level here in TNA while GREATNESS, Bobby Roode and Nigel McGuinness are looking to prove that they deserve to be headlining Pay per Views, earning the big money and getting the big opportunities. ELIMINATIONS| 1ST| Christopher Daniels adding to his recent misfortune was the first man eliminated after a number of men were in the ring hitting their moves when Low Ki went for CM Punk which distracted Daniels enough for Chris Sabin to roll Daniels up for the 3 count. Daniels was fuming afterwards while Sabin flashed Daniels a cocky smile as Daniels was escorted from ringside. Samoa Joe and Chris Sabin are the only non TNA champions now to have ever beat Christopher Daniels. (5-4) 2ND| Low Ki had finally got his hands on CM Punk at ringside and while Punk was trying to cover up against the security railing Low Ki was just unloading with kicks, Low Ki was all over Punk. Match official couldn’t stop Low Ki no one else was looking to get involved. TNA security finally came down and pulled Low Ki away from CM Punk as it was announced that the match official had disqualified Low Ki. (4-4) 3RD| CM Punk afterwards refused to get back into the match, Punk grabbed his TNA T.V title from ringside and walked out on his team leaving them at a disadvantage once again. (4-3) 4TH| a little while until the next elimination but it came after Nigel McGuinness smashed Austin Aries with his jaw breaker lariat after avoiding a roaring elbow from Aries. (3-3) 5TH| Match was even again with Hardy, Sabin & Strong representing one team and Harris, McGuinness & Roode the other. Things were tight now with both teams desperate to not fall behind again. All 6 men were in the ring when Hardy went for his Whisper in the Wind only for McGuinness to push Hardy from the top rope to the floor, Hardy hurt his ankle on landing. McGuinness turned into a Gibson Driver from Strong but Strong was then rolled up by the legal man Chris Harris for the elimination giving his team the advantage for the first time in the match. Hardy was hurt at ringside too. 6TH| Jeff Hardy was not technically eliminated from the match but Chris Sabin was fighting by himself now and Sabin gave a good showing of himself against the 3 men and scored near falls on all 3 men but they always had the numbers to save their partner from elimination. Eventually the numbers caught up to Sabin he was running wild, he caught McGuinness with a Tornado DDT and Harris with his Hesitation drop kick in the corner only for Roode to smash Sabin in the back of the neck with his dangerous lariat which was enough to eliminate Sabin. Harris, McGuinness & Roode had really turned the match around. (1-3) 7TH| Jeff Hardy was alone and hurt, Hardy could barely stand on his injured ankle but the crowd were right behind him. Harris, McGuinness & Roode mocked Hardy and the crowd. Seemed like were moments away from Harris, McGuinness & Roode competing in a 3 way to determine the winner of the match. Again like Sabin, Hardy would have his moments but whenever Hardy had a man covered someone else would break up the fall. Hardy finally got a break when Harris accidentally caught McGuinness with a Spear which allowed Hardy to dump Harris from the ring but Roode was the legal man and Roode grabbed Hardy looking for his fisherman suplex but Hardy countered with a Twist of Fate which was enough to eliminate Roode, Hardy was still in with a chance. (1-2) 8TH| Harris & McGuinness worked together to try and get rid of Hardy as quick as possible but Hardy would not stop coming at McGuinness and Harris but it was clear Hardy’s ankle was in a bad way. McGuinness set Hardy up for Tower of London on the top rope and the end seemed to be near but Hardy started firing back so McGuinness joined Hardy on the ropes but Hardy managed to knock McGuinness down and quickly hit his Swanton Bomb. Harris entered the ring to seemingly help McGuinness but Harris stopped himself and watched as Hardy eliminated McGuinness… (1-1) 9TH| Harris smashed Hardy with a Spear the second Hardy struggled back to his feet but unbelievably Hardy kicked out at the last second much to the annoyance of Harris. Harris argued with the match official before dragging Hardy back to his feet and smashing him with his Catatonic but again Hardy managed to roll his shoulder up but now Hardy was purely fighting on instinct, he was gone so Harris quickly locked Hardy in his Texas clover leaf in the middle of the ring and Hardy was in no condition to even attempt to crawl for the ropes so Hardy tapped out! RESULT| CHRIS HARRIS WON THE TOTAL ELIMINATION MATCH LASTLY ELIMINATING JEFF HARDY
Jeff Hardy was face down in the middle of the ring being checked on by the match official as Mike Tenay praised the valiant effort of Hardy but Don Callis noted that Hardy recently has been made to tap out by Christopher Daniels twice, Samoa Joe and Chris Harris, Callis mockingly called Hardy “Superstar” before congratulating Chris Harris on his victory, breaking his Pay per View losing streak and proving to everyone that he was still the face of professional wrestling.
Chris Harris told everyone that tonight he would once again prove all of his critics wrong and he Harris did just that as Wildcat Wrestling Academy (Cliff Compton, Eddie Colon, Ryan O’Reilly & Shawn Daivari) and Norman Smiley came out Nigel McGuinness was shown watching backstage as Tenay reminded everyone that Harris could have saved McGuinness but decided not to. Chris Harris was carried around the ring by the Wildcat Wrestling Academy as TNA No Surrender went off the air as Don Callis again called Chris Harris the face of professional wrestling.

SUNDAY 23RD OCTOBER 2005| TNA BOUND FOR GLORY!!
An ad aired advertising the second TNA Bound for Glory the biggest event of TNA’s year live on Pay per View on Sunday 23rd October 2005.

Shane Douglas noted in reviewing the match that New Millennium (Frankie Kazarian & Michael Shane) w.

INTERNATIOAL CHALLENGE MATCH JUSHIN ‘THUNDER’ LIGER V NIGEL McGUINNESS
Nigel McGuinness walked out first wearing a black bomber jacket and jeans before being joined by the Japanese legend Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger who received a standing ovation from the crowd in attendance. Liger was wearing his famous red and white mask with a suit. McGuinness was already trash talking Liger, sick of the attention Liger was getting. McGuinness and Liger stood face to face as Mike Tenay noted how much of a pleasure it was to have Liger compete at TNA Bound for Glory but also how big of an opportunity it was for Nigel McGuinness. Nigel McGuinness| McGuinness from London, England who made his TNA debut at TNA Bound for Glory last year said he’s obviously aware of who Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger is but McGuinness doesn’t understand the appeal and at TNA Bound for Glory live on Pay per View he is going to kick the snot out of Liger and Liger better be careful that McGuinness doesn’t rip Liger’s mask from his face! Jushin ‘Thunder’ Liger| Liger started by thanking the fans for their reception, Liger who’s English was quite strong also thanked TNA management. Liger has had many great matches and made some great memories here in the United States and at TNA Bound for Glory he is looking to make more memories when he beats Nigel McGuinness. McGuinness could be seen laughing at Liger’s comments.
Announcer’s review| Tenay & Douglas were excited about Nigel McGuinness taking on Thunder Liger. Liger is legit, a legend in Japan. Now Nigel McGuinness who has shown a lot of promise gets to take on a legend on the biggest night of the year TNA Bound for Glory!
M O N S T E R S B A L L M A T C H ABYSS V CHRIS HERO V RHINO
Jeremy Borash noted that at TNA Bound for Glory, ‘The Monster’ Abyss, Chris Hero and Rhino would meet in the first ever Monsters Ball. Borash revealed there are no rules, finish comes by way of pin fall or submission. The difference to this match is that, and all 3 men have agreed that the night before TNA Bound for Glory all 3 men would be locked into separate cages in the same room, they will spend 24 hours locked in a room together before facing each other in a match which promises to be one of the most gruesome matches in TNA history.
Chris Hero was fined and suspended following his brutal attack of Jim Mitchell at TNA No Surrender and is not here tonight plus Abyss and Rhino have also decided not to appear tonight but over the next few weeks leading up to TNA Bound for Glory we would hear from all 3 men plus we would watch them enter the cage on the last TNA IMPACT before TNA Bound for Glory… Announcers’ Review| Tenay & Douglas recapped the history behind the Monsters Ball match, Abyss “failed” Jim Mitchell so Mitchell turned to Chris Hero to put down Abyss but Hero took too long for Mitchell’s liking so Mitchell turned to Rhino. Hero didn’t appreciate Mitchell turning to Rhino so Hero took things to a new level when he attacked Jim Mitchell backstage caving Mitchell’s head in with a steel chain. Douglas & Tenay agreed that we may see levels of violence in this match we have never seen before.
R E T I R E M E N T M A T C H JEFF JARRETT V BOBBY ROODE
Jeremy Borash announced the shocking news that Jeff Jarrett has decided to retire from in-ring activities following TNA Bound for Glory, Borash noted that Jarrett would go into his decision in more detail shortly. Jarrett came out wearing a TNA shirt and jeans before being joined by a suit wearing Bobby Roode. The former World champion, Jarrett and former TNA T.V champion Roode who beat Jarrett during the TNA Championship Series stood face to face before taking their place behind their respective stands and microphones. Jeff Jarrett| Jarrett told the fans that the TNA Championship Series was a real eye opener for him on many levels and Jarrett has come to the conclusion that his time as an in-ring performer is almost done. Jarrett has spoken with TNA management a few times over recent weeks and they agree it’s time for Jarrett to move on to a new role but before Jarrett does that, Jarrett wants to go out with a bang on the biggest stage of them all at TNA Bound for Glory. Jarrett is excited to test himself again against Bobby Roode noting Roode beat Jarrett in the TCS but Jarrett vowed his career would have a happy ending when he beats Roode in the middle of the ring on October 23rd. Jarrett also exclusively revealed that following TNA Bound for Glory, Jarrett has took up a role with TNA management but more will be revealed on that in due time. Jarrett finished up by wishing Bobby Roode good luck. Bobby Roode| Roode was told by TNA management that he was put in this match against Jarrett for many reasons but one of the reasons was because Roode reminds them of Jarrett. Roode believes TNA management meant that as a compliment but Roode took it as an insult. Roode told Jarrett he may be a multi time World champion but Jarrett is not as great as he likes to think he is. Roode and Jarrett are nothing alike because Roode will earn all of his respect by being the most calculated and dangerous man in this business and not because people have held his hand and handed him opportunities. Roode warned Jarrett that he would not get the happy ending he craves at TNA Bound for Glory and he will again fall victim to the ‘Rise of Roode!’ Announcers Review| Tenay & Douglas were shocked about the decision from Jeff Jarrett that he would retire as an in-ring performer following TNA Bound for Glory where then after Jarrett would move to a new position with TNA management, Tenay said they would discuss that in further detail at a later time but called that announcement shocking too. Start of the changes by TNA management. Bobby Roode after losing the TNA T.V title last year at TNA Bound for Glory this year gets to face a multi time World champion in his last match, will Jarrett get a happy ending or will the ‘Rise of Roode’ continue to grow!
Borash revealed that there were six matches remaining to announce and all 6 matches are capable of headlining any TNA Pay per View event and following TNA Bound for Glory as part of the changes TNA management are planning people will see a change in how Pay per View’s are presented. Borash announced the championship match signed for TNA Bound for Glory…
T N A T A G T E A M C H A M P I O N S H I P C| GREATNESS (AUSTIN ARIES & RODERICK STRONG) V TBC
The top contenders to the TNA Tag Team titles will be announced tomorrow night on the first episode of TNA IMPACT on SPIKE T.V! Borash revealed that this team had yet to make their TNA debut but were unquestionably one of the greatest tag teams off all time and the TNA Tag Team title match at TNA Bound for Glory is not only Main Event worthy but is also a true dream match. GREATNESS (Austin Aries & Roderick Strong)| Aries & Strong came out looking smart as always carrying their TNA Tag Team titles. Aries said they are putting a lot of trust in TNA management by agreeing to this match, in the sense that GREATNESS want to face the best and they like the fans do not know who they are facing yet they want to be just as surprised as everyone else tomorrow night on TNA IMPACT. Aries mentioned Borash calling this team one of the greatest off all time and Aries hopes that’s true because the biggest night of the year deserves the biggest TNA Tag Team title match as possible but the fact remains it doesn’t matter who walks down the ramp tomorrow night because at TNA Bound for Glory like they have been doing for the last 2 years, Austin Aries & Roderick Strong will prove without a shadow of a doubt that they are the greatest team alive today! Announcers Review| Douglas & Tenay wondered between them who GREATNESS could be defending the TNA Tag Team titles against at TNA Bound for Glory. Tenay noted it’s just another reason to tune into the debut edition of TNA IMPACT on SPIKE T.V tomorrow night. Tenay noted that there are rumours that he has heard which he won’t spoil here but if they are true, the TNA Tag Team title match is truly a dream match and will be without fail the toughest test of GREATNESS’s reign as TNA Tag Team champions.
R E S P E C T CHRIS SABIN V CHRISTOPHER DANIELS
Chris Sabin was out first wearing a comic book character t shirt with a blazer followed by the first ever TNA champion, Christopher Daniels the two men met in the middle of the stage for their face to face but Daniels wouldn’t look Sabin in the eye turning to look out at the crowd instead, showing Sabin no respect, Sabin just smiled and said something to Daniels’ which wasn’t picked up… Chris Sabin| Sabin thought he was doing quite well for himself 23 years old wrestling more matches than anyone else in TNA history, competing against the best, sometimes beating the best, won the Next Step tournament, was the first strong TNA T.V champion basically Sabin was having a lot of fun and thought he was earning everyone’s respect and making a name for himself but then Sabin questioned whether Daniels had any balls… Sabin laughed to himself while Daniels looked angry. Sabin admitted Daniels beat the hell out of him, busted him open and pretty much cost him any chance of winning the TNA Championship Series. Sabin was angry and at times had to resist screwing over Daniels in return but once Sabin calmed down and thought about it properly. Daniels taught Sabin a lesson and beat some respect into Sabin. Sabin respects Christopher Daniels. Sabin reeled off Daniels’ accomplishments and the truth is Sabin wants to be regarded in the same breath as the likes of Daniels and now Sabin wants to earn Daniels’ respect and after TNA Bound for Glory the biggest match of Sabin’s life he will have earned Daniels and everyone else’s respect when he beats Daniels in the middle of the ring. Christopher Daniels| Daniels took to the podium and asked why he would respect Chris Sabin. Daniels mentioned the t-shirt Sabin was wearing. Chris Sabin has just called this match the biggest match of his career while for Daniels it’s just another match but what is eating Daniels’ up inside is that it’s TNA Bound for Glory, it should be the biggest match of Daniels’ career he should be challenging for the TNA title in the Main Event but Samoa Joe took that away from him and that’s eating Daniels’ up. Daniels is angry, frustrated and determined to get the TNA title back so Daniels warned Sabin that the beating Daniels gave Sabin at the start of the TNA Championship Series is going to be nothing compared to the beating Daniels gives Sabin on October 23rd because Daniels is determined to leave TNA Bound for Glory as the talking point. Daniels looked at Sabin and told him he doesn’t care about Sabin’s mission and Daniels does not respect him and after TNA Bound for Glory Daniels will be leaving Sabin behind in a puddle of his own blood. Announcers Review| Douglas & Tenay mentioned how this was a huge opportunity for Chris Sabin, truly the biggest match of his life and they warned Christopher Daniels that he better not underestimate Sabin because Sabin will be ready come October 23rd. Daniels needs to put behind him the fact that he finished runner-up in the TNA Championship Series because if Daniels’ loses again then he will be even further away from the TNA title. TNA Bound for Glory could be a make or break night in the careers of both Chris Sabin and Christopher Daniels!
D R E A M M A T C H STING V JEFF HARDY
Sting making his first appearance since TNA Slammiversary came out to a huge ovation from the crowd. Sting who was without his face paint and usual look was wearing shades and a nice suit with a leather jacket. Jeff Hardy was out next to another loud ovation meeting Sting in the middle of the ring for their face off. Face off went without a problem and finished with both men shaking hands. Jeff Hardy| Jeff Hardy said he felt like an excited kid waiting for Christmas knowing he was going to be facing ‘The Icon’ Sting at TNA Bound for Glory. Hardy called Sting his childhood hero and also noted that he wears face paint at times as a sign of respect towards Sting. Hardy called Sting a legend and told him he cannot wait until TNA Bound for Glory. Hardy keeping it short and sweet. Sting| Sting thanked Hardy for the kind words and said he too was looking forward to facing Hardy on the biggest TNA stage of the year and Sting hopes they have one hell of a match. Sting told Hardy he respects him too and see’s great potential in Hardy. Sting told Hardy not to get caught up in the emotion and the excitement though, telling Hardy to get his head on straight or Sting will beat Hardy in the middle of the ring. Sting wasn’t coming to TNA Bound for Glory to sign autographs for Hardy he was coming to kick Hardy’s ass because Sting like everyone else on the roster dreams of one day becoming the TNA champion! Sting told Hardy that while he’s been away he’s been watching Hardy closely and told Hardy that he gets treated like a superstar here in TNA by the fans and management but the truth is Hardy may have earned that status somewhere else but here in TNA, Hardy still needs to prove himself according to ‘The Icon’ and show a little more heart! Hardy was taken back by Sting’s comments, Hardy wasn’t happy about Sting questioning his heart. Sting watched Hardy’s reaction and told “superstar” to calm down and get focused because it’s Showtime! Announcers Review| Tenay called the situation with Sting calling out Jeff Hardy very interesting. Douglas who was still watching Jeff Hardy’s reaction said Hardy is clearly not happy with Sting’s comments about Hardy’s heart. Tenay asked Douglas whether he believes there is any truth to Sting’s comments. Douglas thinking of the top of his head said Hardy showed great heart at TNA No Surrender last month to almost come back and win the Total Elimination match, Tenay interrupted to remind everyone that match ended with Hardy tapping out to Chris Harris, Hardy has also recently tapped out to both Christopher Daniels and Samoa Joe. Douglas does think that Hardy expected to walk straight to the top here in TNA but Hardy has found that last step hard to make. Tenay said hopefully over the next couple of weeks we will get to hear more from both Hardy and Sting leading into TNA Bound for Glory.
T N A T.V C H A M P I O N S H I P C| CM PUNK V LOW KI
Low Ki and TNA T.V champion, CM Punk met in the middle of the stage for their face to face and because TNA management were worried about it kicking off between the two men, a number of TNA officials surrounded Ki & Punk. Punk smirked at Low Ki before raising the TNA T.V title high above his head. Borash in announcing this match called this the biggest TNA T.V championship match in the history of the title. Low Ki| Low Ki who doesn’t talk often said at TNA Bound for Glory he was coming for CM Punk’s head. CM Punk screwed Low Ki out of the TNA title, Low Ki thought he had his career taken from him, Low Ki came back from a broken back and earned the right to challenge for the TNA title only for CM Punk to take away his opportunity. Low Ki is going to take CM Punk apart at TNA Bound for Glory and is going to hurt Punk both physically and mentally. CM Punk believes he’s a great and is delusional enough to believe that he is going to go down in history as the greatest wrestler off all time but Low Ki told Punk that Punk was not on the same level as the likes him, AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Chris Harris, James Storm and seemingly Samoa Joe because if Punk was Punk would not have failed time and time again and instead of learning from each defeat and taking it like a man, Punk always looks to blame someone or something else when the truth is CM Punk needs to look in the mirror and realise that he is not as good as he thinks he is, Punk didn’t like hearing this while Low Ki was getting more and more heated as he spoke before telling CM Punk that like last year at TNA Bound for Glory when Punk failed, Punk is going to fail again this year after Low Ki beats Punk in the middle of the ring and takes away the only thing CM Punk has left the TNA T.V title! Low Ki it seemed was going to go for Punk after he stopped talking but stopped himself, TNA officials were there just to make sure Low Ki didn’t jump Punk. CM Punk| CM Punk was slow up to the podium, possibly reeling from Low Ki’s strong words. Fans were all over Punk as he made his way to the podium too. Punk was taken back, off his game. It was clear for everyone to see. Low Ki had rattled Punk. Punk told the fans to shut up but that clearly angered the fans more. Punk raised the TNA T.V title high above his head and told everyone that he was their champion and the true champion of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling. Punk began to speak but stopped himself and said he doesn’t need to say anything, he doesn’t need to respond to Low Ki tonight with words. Punk told Low Ki to watch TNA IMPACT tomorrow night on SPIKE T.V and Punk will respond by beating the TNA champion, James Storm in the middle of the ring! Punk stormed off leaving the stage… Announcers Review| Mike Tenay and Shane Douglas had never seen CM Punk taken back like that before, Low Ki’s strong words really hit CM Punk hard tonight. Shane Douglas noted how Low Ki clearly wants revenge but Low Ki’s words have just made tomorrow’s match against James Storm and his match against Low Ki at TNA Bound for Glory the biggest matches of Punk’s TNA career. If Punk losses both matches Punk will have no one to blame but himself. However if Punk wins Punk will go into 2006 in a great position to challenge for the TNA championship! Low Ki wants revenge on CM Punk costing him the TNA title and if Low Ki gets his revenge it may cost CM Punk everything Punk has ever wanted!
F A C E O F T N A W R E S T L I N G AJ STYLES V CHRIS HARRIS
Former TNA champion, AJ Styles came out to another great ovation from the crowd. AJ hasn’t competed for TNA since failing to beat James Storm for the TNA title back in June at TNA Slammiversary. AJ took his place in the middle of the stage to loud AJ chants before he was joined by the man who took the TNA title from him, Chris Harris the former TNA champion walked out on to the stage in a blazer and jeans and stood opposite AJ. Chris Harris easily rivals CM Punk as the most hated man in TNA wrestling. Borash hyped this match as the self-proclaimed face of TNA wrestling Chris Harris against the widely regarded face of TNA wrestling, AJ Styles. Chris Harris| Harris took his place behind the podium and ‘The Professional’ soaked in the negative response from the crowd. Harris started off by telling AJ Styles it was good to see him again. Harris loves making his doubters, pointing out at the crowd look like fools. Time and time again people question Harris or write Harris off, Harris when will everyone learn never to question Chris Harris and learn that everything Harris is saying is going to happen and years from now everyone will look back over the history of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling and will agree that Chris Harris is unquestionably, undoubtedly, undisputedly the face of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling and not anyone else especially AJ Styles who can’t keep his word to his fans and has never beaten Harris! AJ Styles| AJ laughed at Chris Harris’ comments. AJ reminded Chris Harris that Roddy Piper once told Harris that AJ Styles doesn’t have to tell everyone he is great while Chris Harris cannot stop telling people how great he is, Pipers point was if your great people will know and you will not have to tell people and the same goes for the “Face of TNA wrestling”. AJ has never and will never claim to be the “face” but he knows that Chris Harris is not the face of the company he helped build from the ground up the strongest wrestling promotion in the world TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling. AJ is looking forward to getting back in the ring he’s feeling good mentally and physically and while AJ is now at peace over not being the current TNA champion doesn’t mean he doesn’t want the TNA title back especially now TNA will be performing in front of a bigger audience week in and out. So at TNA Bound for Glory, AJ is going to beat the man who profited from AJ being screwed out of the TNA title and made is name of it. AJ vowed that TNA Bound for Glory will be phenomenal! Announcers Review| Mike Tenay & Shane Douglas were delighted to see AJ Styles back and competing at TNA Bound for Glory, both AJ and Harris want to regain the TNA title and a victory over the other on the biggest stage of them all will 100% help their cause. Douglas also touched on the “face of TNA wrestling” and said that regardless of what people think of Chris Harris mentioning it over and over he has a goal in mind and a victory over AJ Styles plus his previous accomplishments will definitely see many regard Chris Harris as the face of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling! SATURDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2005| TNA IMPACT DEBUTS ON SPIKE T.V!! SATURDAY 1ST OCTOBER 2005| TNA IMPACT| MAIN EVENT| TNA CHAMPION V TNA T.V CHAMPION| JAMES STORM V CM PUNK!
MAIN EVENT| TNA CHAMPIONSHIP C| JAMES STORM V SAMOA JOE
Before James Storm and Samoa Joe were introduced a video played looking back over Samoa Joe’s time in TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling. Joe debuted in June at TNA Slammiversary and in that time Joe has won every match he’s competed in, 100% record, Joe won a Battle Royal to gain entry into the TNA Championship Series after Storm had Low Ki pulled from the Series and Joe won every match in the Series beating former TNA & TNA T.V champions in the process before beating Christopher Daniels in the finals of the TNA Championship Series!
Samoa Joe the top contender to the TNA title walked out first, Joe always looks disgusted. Joe just wearing black shorts with a plain black t-shirt just walked straight to the middle of the stage and waited for James Storm. Storm came out moments later to a huge ovation. Storm was having fun the ‘Tennessee Cowboy’ came out carrying his TNA title and drinking a beer. Joe was getting frustrated with Storm taking his time and playing for the crowd. Storm in his custom made Cowboy hate stood opposite Joe with a huge smile on his face but Joe who was getting frustrated again like TNA Sacrifice just zoned in on the TNA title on Storm’s shoulder, Joe’s eyes were locked on the TNA title and Storm’s smile quickly disappeared. Storm removed the title and Joe’s eyes just followed the TNA title to the table where Storm placed it, Storm started poking Joe in the chest telling Joe to look him in the eye like a man. Storm was getting quite wound up so Borash asked both men to take their place behind their podium. Storm took his place but Joe who we have never heard off just walked off left the stage again angering Storm. James Storm| Storm called for Samoa Joe to come back, show some balls and look him in the eye like a man! Samoa Joe may want Storm’s TNA title everyone in TNA does but the reality is the TNA title is going nowhere! Joe may have ran through everyone he’s competed against but Joe has never got in the ring with the ‘Tennessee Cowboy’ and Joe has never competed at TNA Bound for Glory! Storm is having too much fun as TNA champion to let go of this title now, Storm mentioned he and Low Ki need to battle again after Punk screwed them over but Storm would settle that tomorrow night on TNA IMPACT when he beats CM Punk. Storm told Samoa Joe to watch what he does to CM Punk because Joe was next. Storm finished up by thanking everyone for coming out and said TNA Bound for Glory, top to bottom promises to be the biggest night of the year but before then Storm will see everyone tomorrow night on SPIKE T.V! Announcers Review| Mike Tenay & Shane Douglas now also joined by Jeremy Borash discussed the Main Event of TNA Bound for Glory, for the TNA championship, champion James Storm who has been champion since early November last year and has beaten names like Chris Harris, Jeff Hardy, Christopher Daniels & AJ Styles will defend his TNA title against the undefeated top contender Samoa Joe! Joe has destroyed everyone he has been in the ring with from Jeff Hardy to Chris Harris to Christopher Daniels and Joe is zoned in on taking the TNA title from James Storm. Normally after what they have seen from Joe they would be sure that Joe would win the TNA title at TNA Bound for Glory but James Storm has a habit of surprising people and never giving up he also has the experience of competing in last year’s TNA Bound for Glory Main Event. The announcers wondered who would be classed as the favourite and they couldn’t decide before they quickly ran through the 2005 TNA Bound for Glory once again which will be live on Pay per View on Sunday 23rd October before finishing up by telling everyone to tune into TNA IMPACT tomorrow on SPIKE T.V!
