TNR: Total Nonstop Recaps
This is TNA: 2-Hour Special 2/12/07

Ah, back for my second-ever TNA recap. I apoligize for it being a tad bit late, but I am currently unable to have cable TV and the computer running at the same time. But enough about me. It’s TNA time!

We start with Eric Young talking to a room full of dogs. I’m serious. He says that they are going to watch the dog show whether they like it or not. TNA then comes on his TV and he goes ape shit. As stupid as it sounds.

Next we get the same video that they used for the Genesis PPV in November. You know, the whole bit about “one small step…one giant leap.” Is it just me, or do you think that, sense this is supposed to be a big deal and all, that TNA should have maybe invested a little money and made a new (and better) video package for this event.

Opening video time. Duh duh…duh duh.

Mike and Don hype the show as we get right to the action. I should probably note that they are doing live commentary for the matches.

Match 1: King of the Mountain Match for the NWA Heavyweight Championship (TNA Slammiversery 6/18/06) Orlando, FL
(C) Christian Cage V.S. Sting V.S. Ron “The Truth” Killings V.S. Abyss V.S. Jeff Jarrett

Jarrett attacks Killings to start as Christian jumps off a ladder onto Abyss. Sting and Cage work over Abyss on the outside while The Truth ducks a Jarrett clothesline and hits a spinning side/axe kick (sorry, but I don’t know what the hell to call it). He then hits Jarrett with a spinning forearm coming off the ropes while Sting rams Abyss into the guard rail. Back in the ring, Christian and Killings hit a double hiptoss. Christian then shows off his street cred. by doing one of the worst dances I have ever seen. He and Killings slap hands and then Killings superkicks him in the face for a 2-count. Nice guy, that Killings. Truth misses the axe kick and gets tossed to the outside. Jarrett attacks Christian but gets clotheslined to the floor as well. Christian hits a dive to the floor onto Jarrett. Meanwhile, Sting and Killings double-team Abyss in the ring, where The Truth hits an axe-kick. Killings hits a flip dive onto Abyss, Cage, and Jarrett. Sting follows that up with a dive off the top of the penalty box. Back in the ring, Stings beats on Jarrett and hits the Stinger Splash. Truth then comes off the top with a dropkick on Jarrett for 3, sending Jeffy Jeff to the penalty box. Truth is now eligible to hang the belt. Meanwhile, Christian whiplashes a ladder into Truth’s face while James Mitchell sets up tables on the outside. He goes for the pin, but Abyss breaks it up. Abyss stands on Christian’s throat and tries for a press slam, which Christian counters into a pin attempt for 3, giving Abyss two minutes in the penalty box. Abyss gets pissed and clotheslines Christian. Jarrett wants to work together with Abyss. Back in the ring, Sting hits a nice dropkick on Killings while Jarrett trips Cage from the outside.


Back from break we see Abyss and Jarrett destroying everyone with a ladder. Killings is able to evade the contact and hops on the ladder, so they just dump him to the outside. Stings and Christian dropkick the ladder into the heels. Christian turns the ladder upside down and wedges Jarrett in between while he stands on it. He tries to hang the belt from there but Abyss catches him and they both tumble to the outside. Killings tries to hang the belt but Abyss tips the ladder. We get a ref bump and Abyss hits the Black Hole Slam on Jarrett and Slick Johnson comes down to count the 3. Jarret goes to the penalty box. Abyss plans on spashing Cage off the ladder, but tips it, sending him crashing through the tables on the outside. Sting puts the Scorpion Deathlock on Christian, but lets go to stop Jarrett from hanging the belt. Sting puts the Deathlock on Jarrett while Christian attempts to hang the belt. Larry Zybisco low blows him and chucks him outside. Sting nails Zybisco and hits the Scorpion Death Drop on Jarrett and tries to hang the belt, which Christian doesn’t appreciate. While they argue, referee Earl Hebner tips the ladder over, allowing Jarrett to hang the belt while the fans litter the ring with garbage.

Sting takes over and hits the Stinger Splash and the Scorpion Death Drop for 2. Jarrett hits The Stroke for 2. Sting hits a tombstone piledriver for 2. Jarrett puts on the Figure 4, but Sting won’t tap so Jarrett puts on the ankle lock, which Angle doesn’t particularly care for. Sting counters and grabs the bat, but Angle won’t let him use it.
