Procure, Procure, Procure 

– The opening video brought us to Cameron, North Carolina at the Hardy abode. Broken Matt Hardy sought the advice of trusty giraffe, George Washington on the Seven Deities demanding that he return to his Egyptian roots. In only the way a man and giraffe can communicate in the Broken Universe, this cracked us up. Next, Matt spoke to Vanguard 1 about rumors of his drinking problems. A freaking drone. Ha. Anyways, Brother Nero approached Matt, as he was informed that they’d be transported to somewhere unknown. Matt basically asked Nero to “house his abilities” in his vessel and to change things up, Nero had the premonition that Matt would go to Egypt and just like that, Matt disappeared. If you powered through those few sentences without any trouble, then this show should be just for your liking. In any other gimmick, this would burn, but the Hardys always make it work. It’s like a niche at this point.

Trouble In Charge 

– Dixie Carter’s an interesting lady. While we applaud the idea that the show’s “chaos” behind the feud between TNA World Heavyweight Champion Drew Galloway and Lashley prompted her to give the show to someone else for the night, it didn’t make sense. That said, who ended up in charge was okay. We also saw highlights of how Jeff Hardy earned the right to face his brother Matt at Slammiversary, with the storyline focused on Matt’s darker character after Jeff took him out. The last of the highlights focused on the Ethan Carter III-Miracle feud.

Lumberjack Adventures 

– Something that TNA has done brilliantly in the “Pop TV era” has been their main event buildups. They pound it into your head that this is something you need to see. We hear from both competitors in separate interviews. Sometimes, there’s a video package. Maybe they’ll even brawl. Such is the example with the current main event program in TNA World Heavyweight Champion Drew Galloway and Lashley. The opening video showed us how we were at the stage where they were set for an ultimate showdown. They amplified it further as they showed upon a brawl in the production area when they found each other backstage, as they needed half the locker room to separate them. Way to sell it, guys. Yes.

TNA Bound For Glory 2015 Reaction

TNA Bound For Glory 2015By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

When you have a dud like Slammiversary, there’s nowhere to go but up, right?

While we had moments that brought back memories of that terrible night (ongoing audio technical difficulties, inexcusable announcing blunders, questionable booking decisions), the good news was that an excitable opener and final 90 minutes were enough to salvage the night for any wrestling fan.

However, TNA’s still TNA and it’ll take a while for them to move ahead of this show with any momentum, main event finish aside.

The Momentum Swings

– The opening video highlighted the recent Global Force Wrestling “hostile takeover” of the place Jeff Jarrett once called home, and how the Team TNA-Team GFW match materialized for ultimate control of the company. Also featured was TNA World Heavyweight Champion Ethan Carter III retaining his Title, making Jeff Hardy his new personal assistant.

Last Friday Night

– The cold tension between Eric Young and TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle was captured excellently on this episode form start to finish. Starting things with a random cameraman in the passenger seat of Young’s car made us wonder just what was going on in the first place, but was used as a set-up to the apparent parking lot brawl that ensued seconds later since Angle was already waiting for him.
