I'm really looking forward to see TNA50, the TNA48 and TNA49 were all pretty good shows, loved the ending of the Steel Cage Match in the Main Event with Hardcore Revolution and TNA going at it, also intrigued to see a lot of matches on TNA50 like AJ Styles and Low Ki, and also the debut of Sting in TNA. Nice touch to end the segment with Christopher Daniels getting spooked by a mannequin of Sting. Loved it, i'll definitely be keeping my eye on TNA50 after you're done posting it. I think it should be interesting,

TNA Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling
TNA50| Coming of Age – 1 Year in the Making
(1 Year Anniversary Show)
TNA Champion; Low Ki (09.04.03 - beat Christopher Daniels)
TNA Tag Team Champions; Alpha Male Enterprise (16.04.03 – beat Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn)
• Video Package|Looking back at the first year of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling, starting off with Mike Tenay introducing everyone to the first TNA Pay per View back on June 19th 2002. Included in the video package was Christopher Daniels winning the first ever Gauntlet for the Gold match to become the first ever TNA champion. Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn becoming the first TNA tag team champions. Low Ki beating Christopher Daniels to become the new TNA champion. Alpha Male Enterprise (Elix Skipper & Monty Brown) beat Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn to become the new TNA tag team champions and later retained the titles in the first Steel Cage match in TNA history. The rise of fresh, young talent including Abyss, Chris Harris, CM Punk and James Storm among others. The war between Team TNA & Extreme Revolution was shown as was the announcement that TNA had signed former multi times World champion, ‘The Icon’ Sting and finally it showed the match that got the world talking about TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling, the 30 minute time limit draw between AJ Styles and Low Ki…
Video continued by going back to the start of the match between AJ and Low Ki which started with AJ and Low Ki exchanging right hands in the middle of the ring. Video then transitioned into looking back on the years of both AJ Styles and Low Ki. Both men made it to the final 3 of the Gauntlet for the Gold match but failed to become the first TNA champion both being eliminated by eventual champion, Christopher Daniels. During the match Low Ki was injured and out of action for many months while AJ Styles had to deal with being labelled a failure by Jeff Jarrett plus ‘The Monster’ Abyss who blamed AJ for him not becoming the TNA champion. Abyss beat AJ Styles but after AJ scored the biggest victory off his career over Jeff Jarrett, things started to come together for AJ Styles and AJ turned his attention to the TNA championship but so did the returning Low Ki! Christopher Daniels cheated AJ Styles out of the TNA title but then lost the TNA title to Low Ki. Tonight finally after one year of waiting we will finally see the rematch the world has been asking for, tonight we all find out who is the better man, only one man can leave tonight as the TNA champion who will it be? Will Low Ki retain his TNA championship or will AJ Styles make history and become the new TNA champion. Video finished by showing the end of the first AJ Styles/Low Ki match which saw both men spent, exhausted on their knees exchanging right hands.
• TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling open…
• Open| Fireworks went off around the arena before Mike Tenay welcomed everyone to TNA50| Coming of Age – before introducing his regular broadcast partners Don West & Jeremy Borash. The 3 men then hyped tonight’s show which is one year in the making, as they hyped the card, graphics for each match appeared on the screen…
• Graphic| Bad Street Boys (Christian York & Joey Matthews) V Briscoe Brothers (Jay & Mark Briscoe)!
• Graphic| TNA tag team champions| Alpha Male Enterprise (Elix Skipper & Monty Brown) V BG James & Ron Killings!
• Graphic| 10 Man Tag Team match| Team TNA (Amazing Red, Chris Harris, CM Punk, James Storm & Jerry Lynn) V Extreme Revolution (Justin Credible, Mike Awesome, Raven, Shane Douglas & The Sandman)!
• Ringside| JB, Tenay & West spoke about the big match atmosphere in the arena before reminding everyone of the time limits before heading to ringside for our opening match of the evening…
• Time Limits| Reminder that all TNA title matches and Main Events have a 30 minute time limit while all other matches have a 20 minute time limit unless otherwise stated.
• Match 1| 10 Man Tag Team Match| Team TNA (Amazing Red, Chris Harris, CM Punk, James Storm & Jerry Lynn) V Extreme Revolution (Justin Credible, Mike Awesome, Raven, Shane Douglas & The Sandman)|
Extreme Revolution came out first as a unit. Sandman came out carrying a 6 pack of beer which Sandman placed on the broadcast table telling the commentators that they were to celebrate their victory. James Storm was out first for Team TNA and while Storm was wearing a TNA t-shirt there was no unity between Team TNA. CM Punk was out next and he and Storm didn’t even exchange eye contact. First ever TNA tag team champions, Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn were out next their first appearance since their history Steel Cage match at TNA48. Finally Chris Harris was the last man out for his team.
TNA managements on screen representative Dusty Rhodes was shown watching on a monitor backstage it was Rhodes that accepted Raven’s challenge because Rhodes sees it as an opportunity for TNA to stand up for themselves, make a name for themselves but also prove that TNA management was right a year ago when they took a chance on everyone of them.
CM Punk throughout the match was desperate to get his hands on Raven. Punk has made it clear that he is not fighting this war for TNA he is fighting his own war against Raven and has vowed to make a name for himself by sacrificing Raven. During the match adding to the tension between Team TNA it seemed Chris Harris and James Storm were having words on the ring apron. Harris actually jumped down from the apron and seemed to be thinking about walking out of the match until Jerry Lynn talked Harris into coming back. The argument between Harris & Storm seemed to come from nowhere.
Extreme Revolution dominated the bulk of the match but at others all hell broke loose as it did at the end of the match Sandman took advantage of the match breaking down and outside of the ring levelled Jerry Lynn with a shot to the head with a Singapore cane only for Amazing Red to take himself and Sandman out after a running Shooting Star press from the ring apron. At this point Punk & Raven were the legal men. Outside of the ring James Storm hip tossed Justin Credible into the crowd then avoided a smash from Mike Awesome sending Awesome crashing into the security railings. Credible was back up but Storm dropped Credible with his Super kick as Credible leaned over the railings as Shane Douglas sent Chris Harris into the ring steps but then Douglas turned into a Super kick from Storm also. While this was going on in the ring Raven had control and was setting CM Punk for his Even flow DDT but again James Storm was there to the rescue, Storm rolled into the ring and nearly took Raven’s head off with another Super kick but before Raven landed Punk kept Raven up and spiked Raven with his own Even flow DDT which was enough for the 3 count.
Result| Team TNA (Amazing Red, Chris Harris, CM Punk, James Storm & Jerry Lynn) beat Extreme Revolution (Justin Credible, Mike Awesome, Raven, Shane Douglas & The Sandman) via pin fall
James Storm took the bull by it horns and led Team TNA to victory tonight by taking out 4 members of Extreme Revolution while nailing 3 members of Extreme Revolution with his Super kick. Fans were on their feet for Team TNA but especially their home town boy the ‘Tennessee Cowboy’ James Storm who was now outside of the ring grabbing the beers Sandman had brought to ringside as his team mates Amazing Red, Jerry Lynn & Chris Harris rolled back into the ring. Storm back in the ring passed around the beers to Lynn & Red then Chris Harris who it seemed reluctantly took one there wasn’t any words of any kind exchanged between Storm and Harris. James Storm then turned to find CM Punk only to see CM Punk making his way back up the aisle, no celebrating for CM Punk. CM Punk with the pin fall victory over Raven here tonight. James Storm, Amazing Red and Jerry Lynn then celebrated their victory by climbing the ropes and toasting the fans as Chris Harris leaned in the corner watching James Storm. Dusty Rhodes challenged Team TNA to step up and tonight they did that but no one did it as much as the ‘Tennessee Cowboy’ James Storm!
• Video Package| Looking at the newer TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling wrestlers who will be looking to make a name for themselves in Year 2 of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling including Zero Gravity (Matt Sydal & Paul London), Chris Sabin, Roderick Strong, Bobby Roode, Frankie Kazarian, Antonio Banks, Robbie Eckos, The Naturals (Andy Douglas & Chase Stevens) and Doug Williams.
• Earlier Today| Throughout the day cameras caught Christopher Daniels, AJ Styles and TNA champion, Low Ki all separately arriving at the arena ahead of tonight’s Main Events.
• Ringside| Traci Brooks and Frankie Kazarian were in the ring when we returned. Kazarian was wearing a pin strip black suite but with no shirt underneath showing off his upper body, Traci was also in pin strips which are turning into their trademark look. Frankie had a microphone in hand. Frankie wanted to take this time to publicly thank Christopher Daniels… AJ Styles… Low Ki… Alpha Male Enterprise… Amazing Red, James Storm etc for putting TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling on the map but he will take it from here and take TNA to new heights. Frankie said Year 1 has been fine and tonight is a celebration of that but next year led by the ‘FACE of Professional Wrestling’ will blow everyone’s minds. Doug Williams’ music interrupted and the undefeated wrestler from the United Kingdom joined Kazarian in the ring. William grabbed a microphone and gave Traci a wink before speaking which annoyed Kazarian. Williams admitted to not being much of a talker he’s more of a fight so he will make this quick. Williams has an idea last year on the first show TNA management took a chance and gave AJ Styles and Low Ki the spotlight, next year is the first show of Year 2 – Williams asked TNA management to take another chance and said why not give him and Kazarian the spotlight. Kazarian didn’t like where this was going and whispered into Traci’s ear. Traci asked Doug Williams if he was challenging her man the ‘Pinstripe Pin Up’ to a match next week. Williams said like Kazarian that he too is looking to make a name for himself and looking to join the likes of AJ, Daniels and Low Ki at the top of TNA. It’s clear that Williams and Kazarian want the same thing so Williams challenged Kazarian again too see who wants it more. Kazarian and Traci stepped up to Williams, Kazarian nodded to accept the challenge then Traci slapped Doug Williams around the face only for Williams to instantly slap Frankie Kazarian. Kazarian dropped and rolled out of the ring. Williams turned his head to Traci Brooks who stood there in shock for a few seconds before quickly joining Kazarian outside of the ring. It’s been agreed next week at TNA51 the first show of TNA’s second year we will see Doug Williams take on Frankie Kazarian and both men have hopes of climbing to the top of TNA as fast as possible.
• Match 2| TNA tag team champions| Alpha Male Enterprise (Elix Skipper & Monty Brown) V BG James & Ron Killings|
Alpha Male Enterprise were escorted to the ring by fellow AME member, D’Lo Brown plus Alpha Male Security including Antonio Banks. BG James & Ron Killings have 4 victories on the bounce and have a 71% win percentage earning them this Non-title match here tonight. There is also a rivalry between the two teams which goes back to the early days of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling after Monty Brown took exception to Ron Killings having an opinion on him.
Ron Killings came into TNA being hyped as the one to watch and Killings on occasion has impressed but overall probably has not lived up to his potential and the reason behind that according to the JB, Tenay & West is because Killings still hasn’t fully decided if he is going to focus on a singles career or a tag team career alongside BG James.
AME full of confidence following their victory over Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn two weeks ago at TNA48 managed to isolate BG James after D’Lo Brown illegally dropped BG with a clothesline outside of the ring. Killings after finally been tagged in came in like a house on fire took it to both Brown & Skipper. Killings again showing a glimpse of his potential until Skipper avoided Killings Axe kick and pushed Killings away straight into a Pounce from Monty Brown flipping Killings in the air which was enough to keep Killings down for the 3 count.
Result| Alpha Male Enterprise (Elix Skipper & Monty Brown) beat BG James & Ron Killings via pin fall
Elix Skipper and Monty Brown embraced in the middle of the ring before they were handed their TNA tag team titles by the match official. D’Lo Brown, Antonio Banks and Alpha Male Security joined the TNA tag team champions in the ring. AME’s reign was questioned by many originally but since winning the first ever Steel Cage match at TNA48 and their victory tonight there can be no denying that Alpha Male Enterprise are the top team in TNA today and they deserve to be the TNA tag team champions, like them or not.
BG James again consoled Ron Killings at ringside before helping Killings to his feet as the commentators again agreed that Ron Killings needs to decide which division his immediate future lies.
• Graphic| Up Next| Sting V Christopher Daniels…
• Ringside| Mike Tenay and his broadcast partners Don West and Jeremy Borash hyped that up next we would see the first ever TNA champion, ‘Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels face one of the biggest names in professional wrestling, former multi times World champion a legend of this sport ‘The Icon’ Sting! Both Daniels and Sting have a lot to prove in this next match up, Tenay then introduced a video package looking back at the career of the man who calls himself God’s gift to professional wrestling.
• Video Package| ‘Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels debuted at TNA04 and introduced himself by telling the world that he was God’s gift to professional wrestling, that he was the best wrestler in the world and promised that he would become the first TNA champion. TNA10| Gauntlet for the Gold – Daniels became the first ever TNA champion after beating the entire TNA roster in a Gauntlet for the Gold match pinning Low Ki in the final stage. Daniels was TNA champion for 30 weeks and holds victories over the majority of TNA’s top stars including Low Ki, AJ Styles, Jerry Lynn, Amazing Red, James Storm, CM Punk and Chris Harris. Video ended with Christopher Daniels standing tall as Daniels voice was heard saying at TNA|50 the icon, Sting debuts and Sting will face the toughest challenge of his career when he faces God’s Gift to professional wrestling, the first ever TNA champion ‘Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels.
• Highlights| TNA49| Christopher Daniels claimed that losing to Sting at TNA50 would be a travesty not only for Daniels but also TNA wrestling. Daniels vowed to embarrass Sting and show that Sting was never as good as people believed. Sting’s music hit in the arena and after distracting Daniels with a scorpion appearing on the big screen a life like mannequin of Sting fell from the rafters holding a sign which read ‘It’s Showtime’…
• Match 3| Sting V Christopher Daniels|
Christopher Daniels the first ever TNA champion came out first. Daniels the ‘Fallen Angel’ who held the TNA title for 30 weeks currently has a 80% win percentage with 16 wins from 20 matches which is the second highest behind only TNA champion, Low Ki.
Christopher Daniels paced the ring as the fans were on their feet awaiting the arrival of Sting. A Sting chant went around the arena. Tonight’s match is Sting’s first match on US soil since April 2001 when he took part in the last ever WCW Main Event beating another legend in Ric Flair.
Sting’s music hit in the arena and the fans nearly blew the roof of the arena. Sting eventually walked out on to the stage in his trademark black and white singlet with his face painted. Sting was wearing his trench coat and carrying his trusty black baseball bat. Sting took his time making his way to the ring taking in the ovation from the crowd. Christopher Daniels was clearly getting frustrated waiting on Sting.
Mike Tenay spoke on behalf of TNA management and said it was an honour having Sting being a part of the TNA roster, calling Sting a true class act.
Cameras quickly went backstage to where a number of the TNA wrestling roster were gathered around a number of monitor’s awaiting this huge match between Christopher Daniels and Sting.
Once the Sting had entered the ring the music had died down and the bell had rang to begin the match Sting and Daniels met face to face in the middle of the ring as Sting’s name again went around the arena. Sting got the advantage in the early going. Sting was stronger in the opening lock up and knocked Daniels of his feet with a shoulder tackle before clotheslining Daniels over the top rope. Daniels got control of the match after using the ring as a weapon sending Sting into the ring steps before running Sting face first into the ring post outside of the ring.
Fans rallied behind Sting throughout the match. Both men gave everything to win the match Daniels hit his springboard moonsault while Sting took Daniels down with a top rope supflex but before men kicked out late. Sting stayed with Daniels throughout the match, matching Daniels at every turn. Sting caught Daniels with 2 Stinger splashes before missing the third with Sting hitting the top of the ring post above the turnbuckle. Sting taking another hard shot which seemed to really rock Sting, Daniels tried to capitalise by hooking Sting’s head and arms for Angel Wings but Sting swept Daniels legs with force before falling back into the ropes. Sting stumbled out of the ropes into an STO from Daniels before locking Sting in his Koji clutch in the middle of the ring. Fans were on their feet worried that Sting was close to defeat. Daniels has made many men tap out to his Koji clutch. Sting looked like he was struggling, no fight left. Sting slowly started pulling himself and Daniels towards the bottom rope, fans were on their feet getting behind Sting. Mike Tenay said there would be no shame in Sting tapping out tonight and coming back to fight another day but Sting refused to lose and managed to get to the bottom rope which brought big cheers from the fans in attendance. Daniels was in shock, couldn’t believe that Sting made it to the bottom rope.
Sting seemed out on his feet. Mike Tenay gave Sting credit by saying Sting had shown no sign of ring rust but a couple of big shots to the head and fatigue maybe having an effect on ‘The Icon’. Sting refused to lose and blocked a second Angel Wings attempt with a back body drop and then shortly after Sting got behind Daniels and planted Daniels with his Scorpion Death drop in the middle of the ring which brought the fans to their feet, Sting was a little slow but did manage to cover Daniels but at the last second Daniels managed to get a shoulder up, breaking the hearts of everyone in attendance and the fans watching at home. Sting seemed to get a second wind following the near fall and felt like he could finish Daniels and again swept Daniels legs from underneath him looking to lock Daniels in his Scorpion Death lock but Daniels kicked his legs trying to get free and while kicking his legs Daniels caught Sting with a kick right on the chin dropping Sting. Sting taking his third high impact shot to the face/head. Sting was on his back moving around but there was no body home. Daniels noticed this and quickly got up to his feet and spiked Sting with his Angel Wings in the middle of the ring which was enough to keep Sting down and score one of the biggest victories of his career.
Result| Christopher Daniels beat Sting via pin fall
Fans were standing in shock and disappointment at the bell after seeing Christopher Daniels beat Sting in the middle of the ring. Christopher Daniels rolled off Sting’s body as Mike Tenay congratulated Christopher Daniels on his victory before crediting Sting on a great performance in his first match in over 2 years.
Highlights aired of the big shots Sting took the head during the match, being ran into the ring post outside of the ring, hitting the top of the ring post after missing his Stinger Splash and finally the up kick Daniels caught Sting with in panic trying to block the Scorpion Death lock before planting Sting with his Angel Wings for the victory.
Christopher Daniels had his hand raised in victory before rolling out of the ring. Christopher Daniels after beating one of the best wrestlers of the last 10-12 years proved tonight just how good he really is. Sting was sitting up now in the ring being checked over by officials. Mike Tenay and his broadcast colleagues gave credit to Sting’s performance tonight saying Sting even in defeat put in a great performance and said that without question Christopher Daniels beat a motivated Sting who was at the top of his game.
Sting used the ropes to pull himself to his feet; fans were waiting for Sting and gave Sting a standing ovation out of respect. Sting hurting acknowledged the fans by raising his hand before slowly rolling out of the ring and making his way back up the aisle as Mike Tenay asked when or if we would see Sting in TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling again.

Bad Street claim Briscoe’s are sore losers and cowards after the Briscoe’s attacked Bad Street Boys from behind and attempting to end Christian York’s career with a spiked Jay Driller all because Briscoe’s failed to become the first TNA tag team champions following a defeat to Bad Street Boys.
One thing that was very noticeable about the match was that the teenagers from Delaware the Briscoe Brothers were in Bad Street Boys head. Bad Street Boys just wanted to hurt the Briscoe Brothers. Briscoe Brothers beat Bad Street Boys back at TNA46 after the using the ring bell and tonight they tried to repeat that by bringing the ring bell into the match again but this time Bad Street managed to cut the Briscoe’s of and get hold of the ring bell. Match official was not happy with the bell being brought into the ring and called the match off which allowed the Briscoe Brothers to escape again leaving Bad Street Boys frustrated pacing the ring.

• Ringside| Mike Tenay alongside, Don West and Jeremy Borash were shown at ringside. They quickly ran through what we had seen tonight. Team TNA (Amazing Red, Chris Harris, CM Punk, James Storm & Jerry Lynn) were victorious over Extreme Revolution (Justin Credible, Mike Awesome, Raven, Shane Douglas & The Sandman) plus ‘The Icon’ Sting made his TNA debut and in his first match in over 2 years took the first ever TNA champion, Christopher Daniels to the limit before in the end coming up a little short. Mike Tenay hyped that up next would be our Main Event of the evening for the TNA championship, which has been one year in the making…
• Video Package| Looking at the history between TNA champion, Low Ki and AJ Styles leading to tonight’s Main Event. It all started at TNA01 the two men faced off in the first ever Main Event and they had an instant classic that got the wrestling world talking about both TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling and both AJ Styles & Low Ki. AJ & Low Ki’s comments from their recorded interview were also included in the video. Since TNA01 for the entire year AJ and Low Ki have been compared to one another throughout. Both men have had their set backs but they have managed to stay near or at the top of TNA and it seemed on a couple of occasions we were destined to see the rematch only for something (Christopher Daniels) to get in the way but fate has now brought them back together and tonight one year later we will finally find out who is the better man and whoever is the better man will leave here tonight as the TNA champion!
• Backstage| AJ Styles was shown leaving his locker ahead of tonight’s Main Event. Mike Tenay brought up the fact that tonight’s Main Event both AJ Styles and Low Ki have vowed to prove they are the better man however as Tenay reminded them that there is still the possibility that this match could go a time limit draw once again. Once AJ had made his way out – TNA champion, Low Ki was shown making his way from his locker room with the TNA championship around his waist…
TNA champion, Low Ki and challenger, AJ Styles stood in their respective corners as they were introduced by Ring Announcer, David Penzer adding to the big match atmosphere. AJ and Low Ki both happened to be wearing white ring gear. Both men got a strong reaction; fans in the arena were all on their feet waiting for the bell to start the match.
Unlike TNA01 when both men rushed at one another at the bell they were both more cautious this time round. The opening couple of minutes saw a feeling out period between both men. Low Ki got the first significant strikes in rocking AJ with a kick to the leg which he quickly followed with a rolling liger kick which caused AJ to roll out of the ring but Low Ki stayed on top of AJ and ran the ring apron before soccer kicking AJ on the forehead.
Low Ki controlled the next few minutes of the match and at one point nailed AJ in the middle of the ring with a running drop kick which sent AJ flying back into the turnbuckles hitting hard. There were a number of great spots in the match including AJ landing on his feet from a monkey flip and immediately hitting his Pele kick another saw Low Ki miss his Tidal Wave springboard roundhouse kick then AJ planted Ki with his springboard moonsault into his reverse DDT.
AJ rolled through a sunset flip and attempted to lift Low Ki into position for his Styles Clash but Low Ki trapped AJ in his triangle choke which Low Ki has used to make both Abyss and Christopher Daniels tap out! AJ was ready and was straight to his feet lifting Low Ki, AJ then power bombed into the top turnbuckle twice breaking Low Ki’s grip which caused Low Ki to fall into the perfect position for the Styles Clash which AJ hit in the middle of the ring and straight into the cover, fans were on their feet but at the last second Low Ki kicked out saving his TNA title. AJ hit the first big shot but Low Ki fired back a few minutes later when he managed to drop AJ on his head with his running Ki Krusher only for AJ to kick out at the last second. Low Ki fired right back.
Fans were invested fully in this match now because Low Ki and AJ Styles were once again having a classic. Low Ki attempted his Tidal Wave kick off the ropes again but this time AJ caught Low Ki and hit his second Styles Clash of the match but again unbelievably Low Ki kicked out again. AJ the fans, everyone watching was in shock that Low Ki kicked out again. AJ argued the count with the official but AJ’s loss of concentration allowed Low Ki to finally hit his Tidal Wave kick nearly taking AJ’s head off but instead of going for the win Low Ki picked AJ up and smashed AJ with a second Ki Krusher but again instead of going for the pin, Low Ki went for the kill and locked AJ in his Dragon Sleeper! Match official checked AJ’s arm and went to call for the bell but AJ grabbed hold of the refs arm to show him he was still in the match. AJ showing as much toughness as Low Ki fought his way back to his feet where he turned into Low Ki and then out of nowhere spiked Low Ki with a brain buster before rolling out on to the ring apron. AJ slowly climbed the turnbuckle, gained his balance before coming off the top rope on top of Low Ki’s chest with his Spiral Tap! AJ placed an arm across Low Ki’s chest as the fans counted along but again Low Ki popped a shoulder up!
AJ and Low Ki both on their knees started exchanging right hands similar to how their first match ended, fans were on their feet as Mike Tenay noted that there was only 5 minutes left in the match. AJ got a burst on energy jumped to his feet and ran Low Ki into the corner before lifting Low Ki and sitting him on the top turnbuckle before climbing the turnbuckle to join AJ but Low Ki unloaded on AJ with strikes including head butts and chops causing AJ to fall backwards in the tree of woe position. AJ was trapped and helpless as Low Ki came round before readying himself for his Mushroom Stomp as Low Ki stood on the top rope AJ sat up and crotched Low Ki on the ropes! AJ freed himself and stepped down on to the middle rope. AJ pulled and lifted Low Ki into position for his Styles Clash! Fans were on their feet as AJ jumped backwards smashing Low Ki with a Styles Clash from the middle rope!! AJ was straight on top of Low Ki and with only a couple of minutes to spare AJ Styles pinned Low Ki to become the new TNA champion!
Result| AJ Styles beat Low Ki via pin fall to become the new TNA champion
Another instant classic between Low Ki and the new TNA champion, AJ Styles! Fans were on their feet as Mike Tenay, Don West & Jeremy Borash applauded and congratulated both men on a great match and AJ Styles on becoming the new TNA champion.
Both AJ Styles & Low Ki were flat on their backs in the middle of the ring as the match official waited with the TNA title in his hands. AJ with a struggle sat up and was in clear agony but when AJ seen the official waiting with his title a big smile broke out on AJ’s face. AJ jumped to his feet where AJ Styles was handed his TNA title. AJ hugged the belt before having his hand raised in victory.
Low Ki rolled out of the ring and dropped to the floor as Don West noted that just like their first match the match doesn’t end with a hand shake between both men, which West called a shame.
Highlights from the match aired including Low Ki kicking out of two Styles Clashes before AJ finally hit a third Styles Clash from the middle rope giving AJ the win and the TNA championship.
Fireworks went off around the arena as AJ Styles celebrated with his TNA title a celebration not only for AJ’s title win but also celebrating the first year of TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling. TNA50| Coming of Age went off the air with AJ Styles leaning over the ropes lifting the TNA title high above his head while Mike Tenay said tonight the TNA roster especially AJ Styles stepped up and tonight TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling came of age!

well a jolly good show, snickoledeon, I must say you outdid yourself on this one, Nice win for Team TNA against Hardcore Revolution, I would've expected this match to be a Hardcore Fight, but ohhh well, great win for TNA. A great tag team match between Alpha Male Enterprise against the 3-Live Kru. Shocked that Daniels beat Sting in Sting's first TNA match, unbelievable, Did Daniels really beat Sting, he really did I'm in shock. Well this feud between The Bad Street Boys and the Briscoe Brothers led to a draw, hopefully we see another tag match with them in the near future, and finally AJ Styles is now the new TNA Champion, nice win for AJ. Keep up the good work, I'm really glad that the Coming of Age: One-Year Anniversary worked out well.

• TNA management are also in talks with Don Callis and the early rumours are the plan is to add Callis to the broadcast team and move the less experienced West to the TNA news segments.

Total Non-Stop Action Wrestling: Wednesday 18th June 2003...Alright, the first year anniversary. I'm really tied on the format of your shows, as I sort of think it gets repetitive and difficult to read at times (for example - graphic | match, graphic | match, etc.) I think you could condense it to make things easier to read. Nonetheless, a packed card for the show, which is best for what should be a big event. I am glad you have made it this far though, as you keep progressing really nicely. The best decision made by kicking off the show with the ten-man tag team match - just to get the riff-raff out of the way. A solid bout, with the TNA All-Star line-up of the Amazing Red, Chris Harris, CM Punk, James Storm and Jerry Lynn prevailing over Justin Credible, Mike Awesome, Raven, Shane Douglas and the Sandman of the ECW almunus. Punk taking the loner walk out was nice, it should be interesting how the Extreme Revolution fit into your plans from here. The booking was good, allowing TNA to present themselves as the future of the business over the ECW stars of yesteryears. Frankie Kazarian and Traci Brooks with air time to talk was interesting, and I guess I liked Doug Williams interrupting - though he would have been atrocious on the microphone in 2003. The Alpha Male Enterprise defeating BG James and Ron Killings is nothing special, considering that these two teams have been feuding for as long as I can remember. I'm hoping that this is the end. It is strange to see Sting and Christopher Daniels in the first-hour main event role - logic says that this should have main evented the show altogether, TNA World Heavyweight Championship match or not. Daniels winning was big news, but may have damaged Sting in his debut. It was strange to see the Briscoe Brothers and Christian York & Joey Matthews fight to a no contest, but nevermind. I wouldn't mind seeing Matthews take a singles run in the distant future. I could buy him in the TNA World Heavyweight Championship situation. And finally, the epic rematch between Low Ki and AJ Styles, with Styles finally winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. Overall, a spectacular event to kick off the second year of TNA in business, and I'm looking forward to what you bring forward next.

Alright, TNA 50. Cool little opening video. Stacked card for tonight. Good choice to open with the ten man tag, and the right call to have the TNA win. Interested in CM Punk's choice. Curious about where the guys of Extreme Revolution go next. I see big things from James Storm after that. Interested in Kaz getting time to talk, I've always liked him. I love Doug Williams! Alpha Male Enterprise retaining was clear, hope to see them move on to new competition soon. Not keen on Sting vs. Christopher Daniels going on in the middle of the show. I understand that there's a Title match tonight, but some things are bigger. Also, huge win for Daniels, but it might have hurt Sting coming in a bit. I like that there's a number one contender's match on the next show, love the teams you have. Love both the Briscoes and Matthews & York, so I hoped to see a winner, but hopefully one of them wins on the next show to become a title threat. Big time main event and the right guy won. AJ Styles is the man to take TNA to the next level and I hope he gets a long, sustained and impressive run as champion. Great show and looking forward to year 2 of this. I'll be more of a regular reader.
Well done on getting to a year. Good intro. Glad TNA won and Punk getting the pin puts the icing on the cake. Storm went over well too. Good signs for the future of TNA. Williams vs. Kaz sounds like it will be a decent match. Glad the Alpha Males won, that's a good team you got, hopefully a good long reign. Good re-cap of Daniels in TNA. Nice touch having the roster watching the Daniels/Sting match. Dunno about Daniels winning, I think Sting could have won this one, allowing the re-match where Daniels go over. Esp with team TNA going over earlier, you didn't need to put all the newer guys over. Sad to see the grudge tag match not finish, could have gone with a better match but it does set up another match. Great finish, glad AJ went over. A great end to your blockbuster show. Looking forward to what you do next, some interesting news bits.
Before I say anything about the show, I just want to compliment you on how organized your data of all the wrestlers is. TNA 50 was good. The 10 man tag team match was a good way to open the show, nice touch by having Punk use Raven's finisher against him. BG and Killings losing was a good way to continue the storyline of Killings not being sure if he wants and singles career, or tag team career, I honestly think that will lead to a BG James vs. Ron Killings match if Killings wants a singes career. I sense a push for Doug Williams coming very soon, same for Kazarian too. Christopher Daniels vs. Sting was the second match of the night, having Daniels win was a good choice, it makes him look like he's one of the top dudes of TNA no matter who comes along. AJ Styles vs. Low Ki was phenomenal, everything about that match was perfect for the main event of TNA's one year in the making show.
I've been away for a while, but I got to read your 50th show and it is very well done. The 10-man tag was fun and it's good to see Punk get the deciding pin over Raven. I'd like to see if you try to recreate the heated feud they had back in ROH. Good match between Daniels and Sting, with the legend putting Daniels over cleanly. The two tag matches were nice but the main event was excellent and way to cap off a big celebrations show with a big moment, AJ winning the title. It'll be interesting to see what kind of reign he has without Vince Russo hanging around. Overall a well-done show!
TNA50. Some big matches tonight, so lets get to it. Good to see Team TNA managing to beat Extreme Revolution. Punk not celebrating, however, I find fairly interesting. Alpha Male Express remaining the TNA Tag Team Champions is fine, could have gone either way here. Next up, I'm shocked to see Christopher Daniels defeat Sting. In Sting's first match in TNA I figured he would win easily... althouh, it is a huge rub for Daniels. Eh, a no contest for BSB and Briscoe Brothers. Nothing real major here except the Briscoe Brothers escaped. Finally, a huge main event with AJ Styles becoming the new TNA Champion. A great moment for him and it certainly sets the stage for the future of the business with AJ Styles. A good one year anniversary show.
Alright, TNA 50. I'm glad to see you stick with the diary to this point. The description for the opening video package was very well done. Great way to kick off the show with the Ten Men Tag Team match. Team TNA with the victory was for the better, and very fitting for the company to have a 'feel good' moment on the anniversary show. You really put James Storm over here. Interested in seeing what TNA's second year holds for him. I also loved how CM Punk refrained from sticking around afterwards. Following that, a really nicely executed segment to announce Frankie Kazarian versus Douglas Williams for next week's show. Seeing as how Williams compared their future encounter to AJ Styles and Low Ki's match from last year, it makes me wonder just how far you plan on taking both him and Kazarian. Expected victory for the Alpha Male Enterprise. They have been one of the recent highlights of the diary and I've been enjoying their run as the Tag Team Champions. Time for one of the more anticipated matches on the card. Whoa, completely surprised by Christopher Daniel's victory. I was expecting Sting to go over, but I will gladly take a Daniels win. Without a doubt, Daniel was "the guy" of year one for TNA, and this victory makes me believe that he will make just as big of an impact in year two. Great touch with Sting receiving a standing ovation afterwards. I expect him to return to the ring at some point. The Bad Street Boys and the Briscoe Brothers had a bit of an odd match I would say, though that is expected when placed between the two main events. I wouldn't mind seeing the winning team in this rivalry move on to challenge the Alpha Male Enterprise for the titles. Here we go, TNA Championship time. You've done an incredible job building up to this match. It really does feel like the biggest match in the history of the company to date, just as it should. Awesome write up, and I'm glad to see AJ Styles become the new TNA Champion. The fact that there was no handshake in the aftermath could allude to a potential Low Ki heel turn. Overall, a fantastic show. You put a lot of effort into it, and it all paid off. Year one of this diary is officially in the books, and I look forward to seeing what year two holds.

AJ walked out on to the stage with his TNA title over his shoulder to a huge ovation from the fans in attendance. As AJ made his way into the ring headlines and reviews of AJ’s match with Low Ki were shown words like “Spectacular, Phenomenal and Epic” have been used to describe AJ/Low Ki II.
AJ waited for the chants to die down before addressing the crowd. AJ kicked off by telling the fans if for any chance they haven’t seen his match with Low Ki last week they need to order the replay or if they have seen AJ asked the fans to spread the word that last week AJ Styles and Low Ki had another classic. AJ said that if you thought their first match was big last weeks match was bigger and more important because it was for the TNA title. AJ brought up that last week that Don West mentioned that there was no handshake between AJ and Low Ki after either of their matches, AJ wanted to explain. AJ said that he respects Low Ki but the fact is they are competitors, warriors and have been competing against one another for over a year and the fact is they aren’t done yet because pretty soon they are going to have to settle things once and for all possibly with AJ/Low Ki III. AJ said maybe then they may shake hands. AJ said going forward AJ plans on being a fighting champion a champion the fans can be proud off, taking on all comers. AJ claimed that last week was the toughest fight of his life, then the biggest celebration but now the hard work starts because AJ is now the hunted but AJ is up and excited for the challenge to prove and cement him in history as one of the greatest TNA champions of all time.

1. When one man is pinned/submitted his tag team is eliminated from the match
2. If one entire team is eliminated and there are more than tag team left on the winning team they will then face off to determine the next contenders to the TNA tag team titles. So it’s possible that partners could be opponents.

Result| Bad Street Boys (Christian York & Joey Matthews) pinned The Naturals (Andy Douglas & Chase Stevens) to become the next contenders to the TNA tag team championship

• Ringside| Borash & Tenay hyped that tonight TNA managements on screen Dusty Rhodes would make an announcement concerning Extreme Revolution. Also tonight Jeremy Borash would speak with CM Punk in the middle of the ring but backstage right now Shawn Daivari is standing by with the man who led Team TNA to victory the ‘Tennessee Cowboy’ James Storm…
• Backstage Interview| Shawn Daivari congratulated James Storm on his impressive showing last week in leading Team TNA to victory and asked what was going through Storm’s head. Storm said he could see it all crumbling before him everything they have worked for this past year was falling apart because they couldn’t work together as a team so Storm decided to stand up lead by example and that’s exactly what he did last week. Daivari asked Storm what was next for him, Storm mentioned that he has been told to listen out for Dusty Rhodes announcement later tonight but as soon as Storm is finished with Extreme Revolution it’s simple James Storm is going hunting for the TNA title!
• Match 2| Roderick Strong beat Jimmy Rave via pin fall following his Gut Buster| These two men have exchanged victories in the past and all of their previous matches have been close but not so much tonight because Roderick Strong who is on fire after beating Ken Anderson a few weeks ago made it 3 wins on the bounce after dominating Rave before beating Rave following his Gut Buster.
• Graphic| Tonight| TNA50| Coming of Age – Sting V Christopher Daniels highlights and fallout!
• Earlier Today| Doug Williams was shown arriving at the arena earlier today. Williams currently has a 100% win percentage here in TNA with 7 wins from 7 matches but maybe more impressively recently before signing with TNA, Williams holds victories over Eddie Guerrero, Jerry Lynn and the first ever TNA champion, Christopher Daniels.
• Backstage Interview| Frankie Kazarian with Traci Brooks were in their locker room getting ready for tonight’s Main Event when Daivari entered and asked to get a word with Kazarian but Kazarian told Daivari to get out because he has to focus ahead of the biggest match of his career tonight but as Daivari was leaving the room you heard Kazarian asked Traci for the hair straightners.
• Interview| Robbie Eckos was in the ring with a microphone in hand ahead of his match against Chris Sabin. Eckos wanted to make something clear, he is not a loser! Eckos told everyone not to judge him on what they have seen before. Tonight is fresh start for everyone and he is going to take advantage of that. Eckos said he is not Alan Funk and he is not falling into the trap of being seen as a loser. Chris Sabin then came out before the match but Sabin too also had something to say before the match began. Sabin told Eckos he is being too hard on himself. Sabin told Eckos he can learn from him tonight. Sabin told Eckos that he was about to do something that Eckos could only dream off, not his awesome Cradle Shock or his sick Hesitation Drop kick but… win! Chris Sabin showing some personality over the last few weeks which has won the talented youngster some fans…
• Match 3| Chris Sabin beat Robbie Eckos| Sabin and Eckos had a decent match, fans had fun getting on Eckos back and enjoyed Sabin’s high risk offence and in the end following his Hesitation drop kick and a running boot to the face in the corner Sabin put Eckos away with his Cradle Shock.
• TNA News| Don West introduced TNA managements on screen representative Dusty Rhodes who congratulated Team TNA on their victory last week over Extreme Revolution. Rhodes revealed that only Raven has a full time contract with TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling but next week TNA management is willing to give Justin Credible, Mike Awesome, Shane Douglas & The Sandman the opportunity to earn a full time contract all they have to do is win their individual matches but the catch is if they lose then they have to leave TNA. Rhodes announced the matches… 1. Chris Harris V The Sandman 2. CM Punk V Shane Douglas 3. James Storm V Mike Awesome 4. Jerry Lynn V Justin Credible
• Interview| Jeremy Borash was standing in the middle of the ring and told the fans that in a few minutes he would be joined by CM Punk but first Borash asked the fans to watch the big screen looking back at the history between CM Punk and Raven…
• Video Package| Looking at the rivalry between CM Punk and Raven which started when Raven attacked CM Punk just to send a message to everyone in TNA but Punk has never forgotten being attacked by Raven. Raven also holds a victory over CM Punk. CM Punk has vowed to sacrifice Raven and make a name for himself of Raven’s name. Last week CM Punk used Raven’s own Even flow DDT against Raven and pinned Raven to win the 10 man tag team match for Team TNA…
• Interview| Jeremy Borash introduced CM Punk who came out dressed to wrestle but also in a zip up sports jacket. CM Punk did not look happy as he stormed down the aisle before joining Borash in the middle of the ring. Fans were mostly behind the loner Punk who didn’t stick around to celebrate Team TNA’s victory last week. Borash congratulated CM Punk on his victory last week before asking what was next for CM Punk. CM Punk laughed to himself before telling Borash that he is not done with Raven yet, not by a long shot, Punk claimed he hasn’t even started yet. Punk wanted to remind Raven that he started this and by starting this Raven will live to regret it because he started his own demise. Raven and Extreme Revolution declared war on TNA but that will be nothing compared to the war that CM Punk is now declaring on Raven. Beating Raven even with his own move is not enough for Punk and Punk will not rest until he has tore down Raven shred by shred and Punk’s going to start now by pulling back the curtain and sharing all of Raven’s dirty little secrets. Borash pulled the microphone away from Punk and told Punk he doesn’t have to do this but Punk grabbed the mic and pulled it back towards his mouth and said it is his destiny, his mission in life to go down in history as the greatest wrestler of all time and to make a name for himself he is going to take Raven’s. Punk reminded everyone that he is straight edge which means he doesn’t do drugs, doesn’t drink his body is clean and his mind is pure the exact opposite of Raven. Borash again pulled the microphone and told Punk the interview was over and Punk was taking this too far and he wanted nothing to do with it. Punk took the microphone and told Borash to get lost. Punk then continued to trash Raven calling him a junkie, a dead beat an alcoholic and said the most impressive thing Raven has done and has managed to stay relevant enough that Punk doing this tonight actually means something. With that Raven was making his way down the aisle screaming at Punk but Raven was being stopped by security, officials and other TNA personal. CM Punk was being ordered to leave ordered to stop talking and leave the ring while Raven was still be restrained at ringside. Punk was screaming at Raven that he was going to end him. Raven was furious trying to get at Punk who was leaning over the ropes laughing in Raven’s face. Mike Tenay said CM Punk crossed the line tonight. Eventually Raven was held back long enough so CM Punk could make his way back up the aisle, Raven rolled into the ring to get away from the crowd. Raven leaned over the top rope and screamed CM Punk’s name!
• Ringside| Jeremy Borash rejoined Mike Tenay at the broadcast table and JB called CM Punk’s actions just now disgusting and making his rivalry with Raven extremely personal. Mike Tenay wanted to clear up that Raven is a recovering alcoholic/drug user and Raven is open with past mistakes. There was no need for CM Punk to bring up Raven’s personal problems here tonight.
• Highlights| TNA44| D’Lo Brown cost Amazing Red & Jerry Lynn the TNA tag team titles and joined Alpha Male Enterprise in the process D’Lo pushed Red off the top rope…
• Match 4| Amazing Red beat D’Lo Brown via pin fall following his Red Star Press| Some may see this as a bit of an upset based on name value but Amazing Red one half of the first ever TNA tag team champions has an impressive personal record and managed to get revenge on D’Lo tonight after pinning D’Lo following his Red Star Press. D’Lo Brown’s luck hasn’t changed since Alpha Male Enterprise with Brown still looking for his first victory.
• Highlights| TNA50| Coming of Age| Christopher Daniels beat Sting via pin fall following his Angels Wings…
• Ringside| Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash spoke about last weeks match between the first ever TNA champion, Christopher Daniels and ‘The Icon’ former multi times World champion, Sting. JB & Tenay congratulated Daniels on his huge victory saying it ranked up there with becoming the first TNA champion for importance because there was a lot riding on that match for Daniels. They congratulated Sting on his performance and credited Sting because it was Sting’s first match in over 2 years. Sting matched Daniels the entire way and on another night Sting may have came away with the victory. Tenay said Dusty Rhodes was standing by backstage with Don West and has more information on Sting…
• TNA News| Dusty Rhodes TNA managements on screen representative wanted to clear up the rumours and announced that ‘The Icon’ Sting had indeed signed a long term contract with TNA Total Non-Stop Action wrestling. Rhodes admitted that Sting took a beat of a bang last week but very soon Sting will be appearing more frequently. Rhodes reminded everyone what was scheduled for next week’s Pay per View former TNA champion, Low Ki would be here to respond to losing the TNA title to AJ Styles. Extreme Revolutions will be fighting for a full time contract. Dusty also revealed that management and AJ Styles are currently in talks about who AJ will face in a none title match first and that decision will be announced next week while the next contender to the TNA title will be named at a later date.
• Graphic| Up Next| Tonight’s Main Event| Doug Williams V Frankie Kazarian…
• Recorded Interview| Doug Williams said he came into TNA with some hype behind him after scoring recent victories over the likes of Eddie Guerrero, Jerry Lynn and Christopher Daniels but Williams was determined to prove himself here in TNA and he’s started to do that by winning his first 7 matches but tonight against Frankie Kazarian is his biggest match to date. Williams said a year ago AJ Styles and Low Ki were given an opportunity and Williams said look at them now. Williams doesn’t believe he and Kazarian will recreate the magic of AJ and Low Ki in fact Williams just wants to smash Kaz’s face in but the point is a year from now or sooner don’t be surprised if Doug Williams is fighting for the TNA championship…
• Backstage| Frankie Kazarian the ‘Pin Stripe Pin Up’ and Traci Brooks were shown making their way from their locker room ahead of tonight’s Main Event…
• Match 5| MAIN EVENT| Doug Williams v Frankie Kazarian! Doug Williams and Frankie Kazarian may not have had the instant classic that AJ Styles and Low Ki had last year or even last week but they still had a very good match. Frankie in only his second match here in TNA impressed and it took it to the more established Williams. Both men had their moments throughout the match with Kazarian coming very close to the victory after surprising Williams with a northern lights supflex but in the end Williams continued his unbeaten streak after beating Kazarian following his Chaos Theory. Result| Doug Williams beat Frankie Kazarian via pin fall
Frankie Kazarian rolled out of the ring into the awaiting arms of Traci Brooks, even in defeat tonight Frankie Kazarian’s stock has rose.
Doug Williams once on his feet had his arm raised in victory. Fans were on their feet for Williams. Mike Tenay and Jeremy Borash congratulated Doug Williams on his victory and they believe that Doug Williams may only be one more big victory away from being in contention for a shot at the TNA championship. With that, Christopher Daniels was in the ring behind Williams. Daniels spun Williams around and spiked Doug Williams with his Angels Wings in the middle of the ring. Christopher Daniels got down in Williams face before standing over them fallen Doug Williams as Mike Tenay questioned Christopher Daniels actions as TNA51 went off the air.
TNA51. Obvious start to the show with AJ Styles, the new TNA Champion, making a speech in regards to becoming the champion. A nice elimination match between a bunch of tag teams with the Bad Street Boys getting themselves a TNA Tag Title shot. No surprise with The Briscoe Brothers feud as of late. Good win for Roderick Strong over Jimmy Rave as Strong continues his... strong streak. No, Eckos, you are a loser. Chris Sabin just proved that. I'm not sure if Sandman, Douglas, Awesome or Credible will win their match next week. Could see one of them, maybe. A good promo from CM Punk... an early stage pipe bomb! Bah gawd. Nice beat down with the speaks on Raven, a good promo. Amazing Red beating D'Lo Brown is good to see, not much care for D'Lo in this age. Glad to see that Sting will be appearing more in the future. I don't see Doug Williams vs Frankie Kazarian as much of a main event match, but, I'll let it slide I suppose. Williams getting the win is fine, and Daniels attacking him was nice to give Daniels a feud going into the future. Overall, 'twas a good show.
I really like how your shows aren't stacked with star power and you're using guys like Sting periodically. I'd quite like to see the Styles/Low-Ki feud continue for one more match as it will all kind of come full circle after their time limit draw at TNA01 and then Styles winning at TNA50. My only gripe with the most recent show was that Kazarian/Williams doesn't exactly scream main event material to me. I get that Williams is pretty established within this diary but in only Frankie's second match it seems a bit odd to have him headline. Would have rather seen the new champ main event in some capacity. Other than that, this is going pretty good. Like I said, I like how the shows aren't totally stacked with star power as it adds a sense of realism. Good stuff!

I've always been a fan of having a new Champion open the following show so I liked that. I like that you went over the rules of the opener. Bad Street Boys winning is fine, you have a solid tag team division. Always been a fan of both Roderick Strong and Jimmy Rave so I dug that match. Didn't know that Doug Williams was undefeated so I think that's pretty great. I remember hearing a lot about Rob Eckos for years before he became Robbie E. Anyway, hope to see Chris Sabin go far in TNA. I hope only one or two ECW guys get contracts. Great stuff from Raven & Punk, their ROH rivalry was tremendous. Amazing Red win was fine. Not sure on this going on last, but I see you clearly have high hopes for Doug Williams which I like. Can't wait to see more of Year 2.
Alright, the follow up to what was an incredibly TNA50. Should be good. Great start with the new TNA Champion, AJ Styles, appearing before the audience for the first time with the gold. Fully expecting Styles to meet Low Ki one more time. Should be soon, though it would be pretty awesome if you were to hold it off until the two year anniversary show. A packed opening contest, though a good one at that. Christian York and Joey Matthews becoming the new number one contenders is great, and I look forward to their title encounter against Alpha Male Enterprise. Roderick Strong and Jimmy Rave are two guys who I wish would have gained more success in their careers. Hoping to see them shine going forward in the year, but a good win for Roderick here. Enjoyed the segment between Robbie Eckos and Chris Sabin, as well as the match that followed. I am really interested in seeing how you handle Sabin and whether or not he gets the main event nod at some point. The series of matches with Extreme Revolution competing for contracts is certainly interesting. I'm expecting Shane Douglas to win his match for sure, not sure on the others, though. Maybe Mike Awesome as well. We'll see. Fantastic stuff between CM Punk and Raven. Their rivalry in Ring of Honor around this time was my first exposure to Punk and I was immediately drawn to him, so I imagine that I will highly enjoy wherever this feud goes. Amazing Red defeating D'Lo Brown was fine. I do like how you quickly covered the history between the two prior to the match. I can picture Sting being the ultimate challenger for AJ Styles' TNA Championship somewhere down the line. Onto the main event, Douglas Williams and Frankie Kazarian being in this position seems a bit odd, but I love the both of them, so I'm not really bothered by it. Williams getting the victory was a bit expected, but I didn't see the aftermath coming. Christopher Daniels' attack was brilliant to set up what is sure to be a great rivalry. Overall, a good show that continued to build the momentum that you garnered with TNA50.

TNA 51 and 52: I would like to see a AJ/Low Ki III match in the future, that would be very good. This CM Punk/Raven rivalry has already gone crazy and it's not going to stop with both of them hurting each other, I'm really glad you've been building this Punk/Raven rivalry up. Glad to see that Sting's going to be on TNA full time, I fully expected Sting to stay in TNA at the time of their early days in 2003 that would've made more buildup on the PPV's, could've seen him feud with Abyss, Jeff Jarrett, Raven and others in the early start back in 2003 through 2004. But glad he's going to stay in TNA 2003 in this diary. AJ's match next week against Amazing Red should be an awesome match. Everyone wants to get at AJ's Championship, and though AJ's a fighting champion, he's got to pull off all the stops to hang on to this championship cause there's a lot of competition and he needs to fight everyone to keep this belt, and I'm talking others like Low Ki, Amazing Red, Christopher Daniels, James Storm, Raven, CM Punk, Sting and the entire TNA roster. Good to see Abyss back on his assault on Low Ki doing the same thing he did to Sabu on TNA7. Abyss is a beast, he can kill the hell out of people in this roster. So I guess we aren't going to see the AJ/Low KI III re-match. A Pre Punk Pipe-Bomb Promo on Raven pretty impressive too, Raven got Punk'd by Punk!. Really looking forward to see TNA 53 very soon. Keep up the good work,
You're booking Storm very well. I expected Storm to be the one facing Styles at TNA53 since you noted it at the end of their match but Red/Styles is good enough. Love the push of Bobby Roode as someone who could break necks haha. Would quite like to see a Roode/Styles program. Quite surprised to see none of Raven's pals, minus The Franchise, win a TNA contract but I'd imagine you have some plans for those who failed to win a contract further down the line. The Franchise is a big name and should be a focal point of the main event scene, in my opinion. Looking forward to seeing what you do with him from here on out.
