TNA Spoilers for August 16 and 23, 2007

News, Spoilers

Following are TNA taping results from tonight’s show, according to Alan J. Wojcik of

Welcome to my final TNA Wrestling Impact report. According to a conversation between TNA’s Ross Foreman and one of my bosses David Meltzer there is apparent ban on laptops, but I am more then welcome to bring a blackberry device. Sorry folks but there will be no blackberry buying for me. Tonight I kicked it “old-school” and wrote out this report on notebook paper, basically who beat whom. While I was attending the event my laptop went to Disney-MGM Studios with some other laptops he met online. I asked my laptop if he did something bad when I was at Universal two weeks ago and he said no. So you enjoy these notes and I’ll be back to end this sad tale.

Hour one taping results:

Mike Tenay interviewed Adam Jones. “Donkey Kong” was talking to Tenay when Ron Killings came out. After some jawboxing the two men seem to form an alliance. On the way out Eric Young wanted “Pitfall’s” siggie on his shirt. Killings decked him.

Jim Cornette announced the following two matches in his office.

(1) “Black Machismo” Jay Lethal defeated “Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels to become the #1 contender to the X Division championship.

(2) In a “First Blood Match”, Abyss retained his #1 contendership when he defeated “Instant Classic” Christian Cage. Samoa Joe helped Abyss win and he would pay for it later in the evening.

In between those matches we were witness to the Kurt Angle Awards. Kurt awarded Dr. Kevin Nash and friend I think name Dwayne White (the guy who raps over Angle’s new song) and his wife Karen awards. The party was stopped by Jim Cornette who asked Angle which two titles was he going to surrender. Angle said none so Cornette made three matches for No Surrender. Angle will defend the World title against Abyss, the X Division title against Jay Lethal and the World Tag Team titles against Team Dig Dug sorry Pac Man. Cornette also booked Angle vs. the Steiner’s and Karen Angle in the ring for 5 minutes if Kurt loses.

Hour two taping results:

(1) Frankie “the Future” Kazarian & Gail Kim defeated Robert Roode & Ms. Brooks. After the match Kazarian and Brooks “shared a moment.”

(2) Ron “the Truth” Killings defeated Eric Young.

Backstage AJ Styles and Tomko tried to beat down Samoa Joe. The fight came out to the arena and Christian Cage scored the final blow with a conchairto.

(3) Kurt Angle defeated Rick & Scott Steiner with help from Team 3D.

For Xplosion: Homicide defeated Senshi while Petey Williams & Shark Boy defeated Motor City Machine Guns.

I want to send thanks to all the websites who have used my work and stood up for me last night. It seemed there was more coverage of what happened to me last night than the actual PPV event. Thanks to all the wrestlers I have covered and interviewed in my 5 years covering TNA Wrestling. I wanted none of this to happen but this was Universal/TNA’s decision not mine. See you at the matches, just not at a TNA Wrestling event.
