Money Is For Marks

– The Last Knockout Standing match for the TNA Knockouts Championship between Champion Rosemary and Jade with Madison Rayne on commentary sparked things off as the two traded punches on the ramp. They set it up with last week’s decent segment. Jade performed a suicide dive and a few German suplexes. She was being walloped with a garbage can and asked for more. Would we get a Van Terminator spot from Rosemary? Yes. Jade powerbombed Rosemary onto the trash can. Rayne actually improved on commentary here, she added a lot to emphasize Jade as a thirsty challenger who has withstood other harsh matches. Jade jumped into the mist from the top rope and was hit with the Red Wedding. She got up at 8. RW on the floor now. She got up at 9, but way to miss it, camera. Sigh. Jade spit water at the Champ and connected with a powerbomb onto the steps. Ouch. Rosemary got up at 9. Jade attempted another powerbomb, but got spit with mist again. A third RW on the ramp. That’ll probably do it. It’s cool to see a female break out the F5, though it’s not quite as effective as Brock Lesnar’s. That was it.

A Twisted Fate 

– The opening video recapped when Ethan Carter III defeated Eli Drake to become the new TNA World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender (and silenced Drake for the rest of 2016), which blended into a sleek “promo clash” as they dipped in separate soundbites from TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eddie Edwards and EC3 that pushed the big Title match. Edwards showed confidence aplenty as he claimed to be “the man” that EC3 used to be and needed to be beat, while EC3 put the belt over more than anything and that after the bell rang, friendship aside, he’d “choke his ass out.”

A Broken Thanksgiving 

– The opening video recapped last week’s events when TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eddie Edwards challenged The DCC and was joined by Jeff Hardy, one half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions. The faces begged management for the match and got their wish in No Disqualification rules. We all remember that classic – Kingston took a fireman’s carry onto the top of two seated chairs, Bram took Edwards out with a Brighter Side Of Suffering off the apron through a table and Hardy was taken out by James Storm with a Last Call superkick as the DCC emerged victorious.

Taste Of Chaos 

– The opening video solidly recapped last week’s events, when we saw DCC’s evolution, as they vowed to take everything through control and chaos. They even gave Broken Matt Hardy amnesia. Those fools. Anyways, the trio shifted from “masked businessmen” to “businessmen” when we saw them unmask after an attack on TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eddie Edwards after he successfully defended against Eli Drake. They were revealed to be Kingston (Eddie Kingston of CHIKARA and Pro Wrestling Syndicate fame), Bram and James Storm. We saw potential in DCC as Broken Hardy Universe villains, but with those names, they might actually have something cool on their hands.

The Superfight 

– Total Nonstop Action Wrestling solidly built the Lashley-TNA World Heavyweight Champion Eddie Edwards rematch, branded “The Superfight.” The opening video hyped it again, as it had the “big match” feel with “The Destroyer” one win away from the Title while Edwards would fight hard to keep it.

Treat Or Delete 

– Nothing screams “Happy Halloween” like a visit to the Broken Hardy Universe. Thank god for this gimmick, because it makes holiday themes fun again. The opening video “documented” a “Hardy All Hallow’s Eve” gathering and a pumpkin patch that Senor Benjamin/Vanguard 1 composed. Broken Matt Hardy had another “pree-muh-neeee-shunnnn” that an outsider would come to the compound and deliver a looming message. Brother Nero also ate magical corn or something to that extent. This was awesome.
