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.

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.

That Time In Tijuana 

– The opening video recapped last week’s show, particularly the part where TNA World Tag Team Champions, The Broken Hardys, transported themselves into Tijuana, Mexico, in search of their Tag Team Champions. They called it an “expedition of gold.” We’ll go along with it and anything Broken-related. We were reminded of how they hobnobbed with the Spanish elite and led everyone in a chant of “Delete!” and oh hey, that rhymed. Go us. They were hyped (with big white capital letters and dramatic music) to face Psicosis/Super Crazy later on. That just sounds like a dream match at this point.
