    - Full results here:

    Tonight's show gets rolling with some scintillating coming attractions and Josh Matthews breaks it all down. An Ultimate X match is the first item on the agenda!

    Ultimate X Match for the Tag Titles: The Wolves vs. The BroMans vs. Manik & Sanada

    Recapping Robbie E's fed with Brooke, we learn that Robbie has bailed on the tag match tonight, so DJ Z and Godderz will go after the belts.

    The Wolves get the jump early as members of BroMans and The Revolution go flying. They thwart Godderz from making an early trip up the scaffolding. The Wolves take in accolades from the crowd and Angelina sneaks on to the apron for a distraction. DJ Z can't capitalize as they send him over the top rope and on to the guys at ringside. The Wolves make a play for the belts and Jessie stops Edwards by yanking him on to the canvas. Manik gets back into the fray and strikes a temporary alliance with Godderz against Davey and Eddie. All of the heels end up taking aim at the Wolves. BroMans end up in the ring alone and DJ Z and Godderz can't figure out how to grab the gold. They end up in a big chicken fight with The Revolution and The Wolves come off the top from opposing corners to land twin dropkicks. Chaos ensues as different guys go for the titles via the scaffolding. Sanada and Godderz duke it out on one tower and Jessie gets dropped. Edwards grabs at Sanada and brings him back to earth hard. Manik holds back Davey and Eddie grabs the wire but ends up taking down Sanada with a hurricanrana. Both Wolves go for the belts from opposing sides and grab the titles simultaneously for an epic finish.

    Result: The Wolves grab the belts and win the tag titles.


    After a break, we get a glimpse of Kurt Angle preparing for his big match. Then we go back to the ring for more action. Austin Aries comes out and calls out the B.D.C. for stealing his Feast or Fired briefcase. They bring the case out and Low-ki doesn't seem inclined to give it back easily. Joe takes cheap shot at A-Double and then Low-ki says that if Aries wants the case back, he'll have to go through Samoa Joe.

    Austin Aries vs. Samoa Joe

    Joe is already in control when the bell rings. He works Aries over in the corner and clobbers A-Double as he tries to get away. Aries eventually fries back but can't deliver a proper suplex on his formidable foil. Joe puts him outside and slams Austin's arm on the steps. They end up back in the ring and Aries fires back but Joe works him into a bear hug and a suplex. After some mat grappling they get back to a vertical base and Joe clobbers Aries with a big kick. After some more work on the mat, Joe loses momentum with a missed spot on the mat, giving Aries the chance to put together some offense. He hits a missile dropkick but can't deliver a brainbuster as Joe counters with a submission hold. Aries slips out again and gets all over Joe, knocking him off-kilter with a discus throw and then hitting him with a suicide dive outside. Back inside the ring, Low-ki gets involved as he looks to wallop Aries with the FoF case. He misses and hits Joe instead.

    Result: Austin Aries defeats Samoa Joe via DQ.


    Following the bell, Aries KO's Low-ki with his briefcase and Rockstar Spud flies down to ringside. He tells the ref he's cashing in his briefcase on Low-ki right freakin' now!

    X-Division title match: Rockstar Spud vs. Low-ki

    Still reeling from the shot by Aries, Low-ki can't put up any defense against the bandaged Brit. Spud gets the pinfall easily.

    Result: Rockstar Spud defeats Low-ki via pinfall to win the X-Division title.


    We see Lashley working out and then the show cuts to a big backstage brawl betweenMagnus and Bram. The fight spills out on to the ramp and into the ring and for some reason, the refs and security break it up. Mickie James comes in, seemingly to calm Magnus down but she goes at Bram next. The ref takes her off as Bram crawls up the ramp. Magnus gives chase and hits a powerbomb on the ramp.


    Commercials roll and then it's time for Knockouts action.

    Taryn Terrell vs. Awesome Kong vs. Gail Kim

    Kim and Terrell charge Kong off the bell and Kong gives it right back, stacking them both up in the corner and smashing them against the turnbuckles. She sets up Terrell for a slam and Kim delivers a dropkick to break it up but Kong is still the boss in this bout. She retains the upper hand for much of the match and at one point, Terrell comes off the top and runs right into to a massive clothseline. Kong puts Kim up for the implant buster and Gail counters out of it. Kong remains in the hunt, putting Gail on the floor. Terrell stages a comeback, nailing Kong with a cross-body and getting a near fall for her trouble. Kong misses with a big splash and Terrell hits a cutter but Gail breaks up the cover. Taryn puts Kong outside and Gail goes off the top on to Kong who is on the floor. Kim gets back in the ring and dukes it out with Taryn but Terrell manages a fast roll-up to keep the title.

    Result: Taryn Terrell wins via pinfall, retaining the title.


    Matt Hardy vs. James Storm

    They meet on the ramp and get right to it. This is a no-DQ bout. Hardy puts Storm down and then goes under the ring to pull out weapons. He comes up with a trash can and some chairs. Storm comes at Hardy, stopping him from using any of the stuff. After some back and forth, Hardy nails Storm with a trash can lid. Sanada tries to come in and Matt knocks him down with a forearm. Storm puts Matt down on the turnbuckle and sets up some chairs, landing a superplex on to them. He signals Abyss to pull out some thumbtacks and then goes back to work on Hardy. Storm pours the thumbtacks on to the Matt and gets Hardy ready for another 'plex. Matt counters and pushes Storm on to the tacks instead. He puts Storm down a couple of more times for good measure and Abyss gets involved to stop the ensuing cover. A brawl follows in which Hardy takes on pretty much every guy from The Revolution. When he gets back inside, Storm strikes and tries to pin Hardy but Matt kicks out. Hardy hits a twist of fate and then both guys are laid out from the impact. Hardy gets up and takes a face full of mist from Sanada and a cowbell to the head from Storm. Three seconds later, the bell sounds to end this one.

    Result: James Storm defeats Matt Hardy via pinfall.



    After the bell, Storm tells Matt he can hang out with Jeff in the hospital now. Commercials roll and then the main event is upon us.

    Kurt Angle vs. Lashley for the TNA heavyweight title

    The guys circle to the ring and then engage in a little grappling. Lashley puts Angle down briefly and then the go at it again. Lashley covers Kurt but Angle kicks out quickly. He zeroes in on Lashley and delivers a cluster of German suplexes and then he cranks in an ankle lock. Lashley gets to the ropes and Angle puts him outside. Angle heads out, Lashley heads in, Angle follows and Lashley bails. They brawl outside for a spell.

    Back inside, Lashley gets the upper hand. He stays on top with slow, grinding offense. Angle stays alive and they exchange blows in the middle of the ring. Angle catches him again with a flurry of Germans. A short time later, he follows up with a third batch. He cinches in another ankle lock and Lashley is able to fight out of it. He puts Kurt down with a power slam. Angle still won't stay down and after a commercial, Angle delivers an Angle slam. They battle back and forth and Lashley looks for a change to hit the spear. He powers into Angle and covers but Angle kicks out at two. Surprisingly, Lashley ascends to the top rope. Angle runs up and tries to block him but Lashley pushes the Olympian off. He jumps down towards Angle but comes up short. They roll around trying to get it together and Angle gets up first, aiming for a cross-body. Lashley dodges and applies an ankle lock until Angle grabs the rope for a break. Lashley tries to blindside Kurt and Angle ducks and then lands another Angle slam. Lashley keeps moving and locks in a submission hold on Angle's arm. Angle slips out for another ankle lock and lays down to crank it good. Taz calls Angle "subhuman" but he really means to say "superhuman." Angle keeps up the pressure, finally prompting Lashley to tap. It's all over.

    Result: Kurt Angle defeats Lashley via submission.


    Angle celebrates after the bell as the show fades to black.

    I believe you were the one to doubt Spud winning the X-Division title from Low-Ki. Told ya the little man would do it.

  3. Impact 9/10

    This was an excellent show. I was pretty unhappy with the Knockouts result, being because I am behind Kong 100%. But I got Spud as X champ, so I was happy.

    I liked:

    Ultimate X Tag Title match. A bit of a spot fest and I got tired of Jesse flailing his ass in the air each time he got knocked down. The right team won, the Wolves.

    Good to see Austin Aries back. He's likely the best wrestler in TNA so I'm happy to see him in action. The match was good too but it was absolutely excellent that Spud got the X Division title. I had a rare mark out moment. I don't read spoilers so it was a surprise for me

    Note: I know TNA is way behind in taping but it's so silly seeing Samoa Joe a month after he left. I don't read spoilers ever but it amuses me that Joe is on both TNA and ROH.

    Watching Magnus beat the crap out of Bram. I've never been much of a Magnus fan, but that was cool. Even cooler when Mickie got her knocks in, pun intended. The power bomb on the runway was awesome.

    The Knockouts title match was awesome. Kong looked a bit stiff at first and I was happy when she got into to flow. This was an excellent triple threat match.

    Angle vs Lashley. Kurt was a bit stiff and he didn't sell Lashley's ankle lock well, but this was a strong match and it's good to see Angle as champ. I'm not a Lashley fan and I think TNA will be better with Angle on top.

    I didn't like:

    The referees stopping Magnus.

    Josh Matthews saying Taryn's title reign was validated by beating Kong. She didn't beat Kong, she beat Kim. Kong womanhandled Taryn and if anything, this win made her look weak as a champion. She has shown that she can only beat Kong through technicalities and is honestly no match for Kong at all.

    I was indifferent to:

    I was amused at Angle's comment about Lashley being the most dominant wrestler in this business... I know he has to talk up Lashley and not mention Lesnar, but the comment was still laughable. He should have said "in this company " to keep from looking foolish.

    James Storm vs Matt Hardy. It was actually a decent match but I couldn't get into it at all.

  4. Lol damn, I wanted Spud to hold the straps didn't quite want him to take it from Ki tho.
     
  5. Guess it's too late now, bruh :zayn:
     
  6. This was prolly the best iMPACT episode of 2015. I had a really good time watching it. 9/10

    Positives:
    - Ultimate X match for the Tag Team titles was good, I liked it and I'm glad The Wolves retained.
    - Aries vs Joe was solid. The match ending in a DQ Fest was something I didn't like, but it was a perfect setup for what would go down later with Spud cashing in on Low-Ki. So, all's good!
    - Spud's the new X-Division champ, baybay! :woohoo:
    - Magnus/Bram brawl. Dat Powerbomb on the ramp, tho!
    - Taryn vs Gail vs Kong for the Knockouts title was aight.
    - Storm vs Hardy in a No DQ was decent.
    - Angle vs Lashley for the TNA-WHC was great, I enjoyed it! I'm happy Angle's the new champ!

    Negatives:
    - None.

  10. This was fun. Did they mention the Ultimate X match at all last week? Really should've if they didn't, but I may have skipped over it. Anyway, this was really good, opener was fun, Aries was great, loved Spud bouncing back from being bloodied and shaved and humiliated by winning the X title, main event was a very good match. I'm a big fan of Lashley, I do think his 1st reign was quite better than his 2nd but anyway. Angle as World Champ in 2015 is amusing. Not saying it's bad. This reign could be fun and I do expect him to feud with EC3 in the future, good stuff there.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  11. I'm curious to see how this will play out.. EC3 in the picture and then Aries with the briefcase.. could be some interesting feuds coming up .. something TNA could use a LOT.
     
  12. aww shit you sent me to a UK taping. ily
     
    • Friendly Friendly x 1
  13. Well damn, this was a good show! :yay:

    Not only was it a very good standalone show, but it did a whole lot to try to get me re-invested in TNA...

    -While largely being down with the TNA roster holy crap was it good to see the Wolves again. Probably my favorite in-ring act in all of pro wrestling, seriously. And they had the first really good Ultimate X match in years! :yay: The action was fast, the spots were cool, the Bromans even held up their end... Yeah. This was a win. So much that... I can't believe I'm saying this, but if Robbie E can stay away... I may actually become a Broman fan. *gulp*

    -then Austin Aries comes out! :yay: And I don't know what it is about the UK Tapings that bring out the best in the TNA roster, but it feels COMPLETELY different in the UK. Felt like many matches like this in NYC or Bethlehem... especially the IZ... underdelivered like crazy, but both of these guys brought it and they had a match worthy of the Aries vs Joe title, and since I don't watch Raw the finish didn't have to piss me off! :yay: Seriously this match was so good, nothing could top SPUD! SPUD! SPUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS WOOOOOOHOOOOOO OMG OMG OMG HELL YEAH BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT. WAS. AWESOME!

    Cutaway to Magnus and Bram beating the shit out of each other backstage and good grief the action just isn't stopping and they're brawling and beating the crap out of each other like you'd expect and then even Mickie (she's back?) runs out and ACTUALLY ATTACKS A MAN... I love this show so much.

    Speaking of things I love so much, AWESOME KONG! :yay: And then the women go out and put on a random episode of NXT cailber performance that all the chick fans need to go find and watch with some good storytelling and ahhhhh..

    Yeah. Go find this first hour and watch it. If you haven't, stop reading all my spoilers and go do so, because this was way up there as one of my favorite wrestling shows ever... Then Matt Hardy showed up. :downer:

    One thing that used to feel like nitpicking that's feeling more and more like a legitimate complaint is when a No-DQ match between "dude" and "heel faction" doesn't get multiple babyfaces involved. Where were so many other guys who'd even the odds for Matt fighting for... I don't know what. Anyway, like Jacob Fox up there said, it was kinda hard to get into this one. It's a whole faction that gets Del Rio heat from me going up against Matt Hardy in a street fight... Think this was the perfect match for me to dislike. Maybe it's different for you, idk.

    As for the main event: I thought it was just pretty good but the other guys up here loved it so much that you all can go form your own opinoins. Don't have much to say other than "damn Lashley's a beast". Angle as champ... uhh... transitioning to EC3 maybe? Hopefully?

    There was too much good on here for the last two not bad matches to drag it down. 9/10 from me as well, looking forward to getting on the TNA bandwagon again!

  14. Was really kind of hoping Sanada & Manik would pull down the tag straps.
     
  15. ^That would also be cool. :woohoo:
     
  16. Agree with it all.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one to react that way to Spud winning. I think the only thing I may marked out more more on would have been:

    2. If Kong took the belt. No one should overlook her... I stop watching TNA over a year ago and it was only Kia that got me back. Of course since she did, I was able to see this which was:

    3. The best TNA show since the pre Hogan days.

    4. I'm actually more with you that the main event was pretty good, not great. Kurt has definitely lost a couple steps and I've never been a fan of Lashley's work. But even with that, it was enjoyable.
     
  17. Wow, i'm hearing impact is getting better, and damn it is by looking at this episode... props to Angle the man keeps coming back from injuries and winnin titles

  18. Dude, I was considering to be done with this show for good. But this episode has thankfully pulled me back in.
     
  19. I would've thought last week would've sealed the deal, tbh. Spud vs EC3 in London was a perfect main event for TNA (built up better than most feuds they've tried since Aries beat Roode) and I enjoyed The Wolves beating The Revolution.
     
  20. Nah, the 3/13 episode wasn't good enough to seal the deal for me. The only segments I liked were Roode vs EY and Spud vs EC3, everything else was meh and boring for me.
    This last week's episode has thankfully pulled me back in.

    And at this point, I'm gonna do the same with RAW. I'm just waiting for WM and the post-WM Raw which is either gonna pull me back in or bail me the fuck out.
