My Thoughts on TNA Impact for Feb 4th 2010
Once again it's late and I had to go hunting online for it cause neither iTunes Canada nor the official Spike Tv website has it as of this posting (8:pm) I have to say I hate watching it this way as the picture is always half digitized and blurry. Much rather be able to download from iTunes Canada
It seems we opened the show with another qualifying round in the 8card stud tournament and it was Brutus Magnus vs Mr. Anderson. Anderson went right for Brutus with a knee lift. Brutus fought out of it with a series of punches. Anderson then kicked the knee out from under Brutus before whipping him hard into the turnbuckle. Brutus did manage to fight back with a half necktie takedown. Anderson used an eye rake then his trademark mic check for the win.
Team 3D vs Hernandez and the evil druid Matt Morgan for the titles. Hernandez and Brother Ray started it off with a collar tie up. It then went back and forth for a few moments with both men trying to block the others' punches before Hernandez got the slight advantage. Hernandez then ended up in the corner on the top turnbuckle where Brother Ray hit him with a vicious forearm. Devon and Morgan both tagged in. Devon had the match in this favour with a large splash from the far ropes knocking Morgan down flat. Morgan managed to get out of it and used a tornado closeline for a near fall. Quick tag to Hernandez who used a basic neck wrench on Devon. Both men went to the top turnbuckle with Devon using a flying headbutt on Hernandez. Both got the tags with Brother Ray sending a series of punches to Morgan. Brother Ray then used a large suplex getting the advantage. ... I have no idea who won this because whoever up loaded it cut it off mid match and the next part they did was in the middle of AJ Styles. This is why I hate hunting it down on the internet.
We then seem to jump right into a match with A. J. Styles vs the Pope already happening. The Pope was in the corner with Styles delivering chops to him. Pope slapped him then used a drop toe hold before starting to work on the arm. Styles countered it but it just was not enough. Pope used an interesting combo dance before a very high back body drop. Styles then had the advantage with a knife edge chop and a drop kick. He had Pope on the second rope putting pressure on his neck. Styles then used a snap suplex getting a near fall. Pope did get a few punches in before an inverted atomic drop and another near fall. Pope used a small package for the win.
Another round in the 8 card stud tournament. Tomko vs Kurt Angle. Tomko got a big boot up knocking Angle down hard. Angle used a headbutt and a closeline to toss Tomko out of the ring. Once back in, Tomko put Angle in a quick snap-slam. Angle was shot shoulder first into the ring post. Tomko had him in the center of the ring on the mat before using a power slam. Tomko went to the top turnbuckle but was countered by Angle with a suplex knocking both men out. Angle managed to get up and slapped on two german suplexes before going for his angle slam. Angle used his trademark ankle lock forcing Tomko to tap out.
Whoever uploaded this to the net they uploaded the Knock Outs championship match twice.
Tara vs Love. Tara won keeping her belt. Now you didn't really think I was going to break my rule did you? I have to say this thou, I am not a fan of either but Love looks like she's really improved in the last few months that she has been away. It will be interesting to see what she can do against someone like Hamada.
Mike Foley vs Kevin Nash. This is a no DQ hardcore match. Chaos and a mess in the ring is about all I have to say on this match. Nash managed to win this with a pin.
I will be back at some point this week with whatever the missing pieces are once it's either available on iTunes Canada or Spike Tv official website.
