TNA 2008 Hard Justice: Taylor Wilde, Gail Kim & ODB vs. The Beautiful People & Awesome Kong

kongkim.jpgSIX-WOMAN KNOCKOUTS MATCH

The action began the first iMPACT! after Victory Road when Jim Cornette decided a Knockouts Rumble would be the only way to decide who would be first to take on Knockout Champion Taylor Wilde. Unbelievabley, Velvet Sky rolled Gail Kim for the shot at the title! Taylor Wilde embarrassed Velvet Sky the following week, pinning her twice clean and almost a third time until Angelina Love interfered. This has lead to an escalating feud with The Beautiful People. Taylor Wilde and Gail Kim went against The Beautiful People the following week in a tag team match that they won, but the action was just beginning! The Beautiful People have Amazing Kong in their corner and after the tag team match Kong came out and mopped the matt with the two champions until Roxxi and ODB came out for the save.

The following week, Kong destroyed Selinas in a match and The Beautiful People are in Kong’s corner to encourage her to show what’s going to happen to Taylor, Gail and ODB at Hard Justice. Kong doesn’t need the encouragement. Kong is all about squashing Taylor Wilde for embarrassing her and taking her title and good luck to anyone who gets in her way, even Abyss, who might have a thing for Taylor Wilde.

So, this is what’s going down at Hard Justice. Angelina Love, Velvet Sky and Awesome Kong will be in one corner. Taylor Wilde, Gail Kim and ODB will be in the other. Kong wants to make a buffet of pain out of the Knockouts before her. The Beautiful People, unable to get one over the other Knockouts, want a front row seat when Kong cuts loose. Taylor Wilde is out to show everyone she is the Knockout Champion. Gail Kim wants to make clear the difference between being the Beautiful People and being a Knockout AND she wants to contain the animal that is Kong. OBD is looking for a boob and crotch grabbin’, butt whoopin’ good time and if that means throwing down with Kong, well, bring it on!

TNA 2008 Hard Justice: Sting resists booking, Nash in iMPACT! video game

hardjustice.jpgThe Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that the final decision has not been made on the current Sting angle. Vince Russo wants to turn him heel but unless he can convince Sting to go heel he won’t. If Sting agrees to go heel, there are plans for him to feud with AJ Styles and then Samoa Joe. As far as implications go, all the babyfaces in TNA have already stood up and accused Sting of going heel. If Sting refuses to go along with this storyline, all the faces will look like idiots. If Sting does turn heel, then where’s the shock value? Look guys, another Russo Original!

That’s two major names in the company pushing back on bad booking ideas in a period of three weeks and a confidence vote on Russo in the last month. We have a feeling there will be more on this very, very, soon.

In spite of Vince Russo, the company is doing so well right now that they are starting to pay back Panada Energy for all the money they put into the company.

The Observer is reporting that Nash was originally mad because he had booked a vacation 7/15 figuring that he wasn’t booked for the Victory Road PPV. Then Nash gets a call at the last minute telling him to be at the show! Kevin Nash and Scott Hall are scheduled to appear this Saturday August 9th in Illinois for the Juggalo Gathering. Well, at least Kevin Nash is officially in the iMPACT! Video game (you can check out some pics of virtual Nash at TNAwrestling.com)

TNA 2008 Hard Justice Samoa Joe versus Booker T Preview

hardjustice1.jpgSIX SIDES OF STEEL CAGE WEAPONS MATCH

The title match between Samoa Joe and Booker T ended with a controversial no contest. Booker T has been in possession of the belt since Victory Road. Joe got taken out by Sting with a bat to the back of his head and then Booker T covered Samoa while his wife Sharmell made the three-count. Booker T then grabbed the belt and left with his wife while Samoa Joe laid prone in the middle of the matt.

In the follow iMPACT!, Samoa Joe and Booker T kicked the trash talk. Booker T told Joe he’s in his head and he can’t beat him. Joe responded by telling Booker T to hold onto the belt, remember who’s belt it is until he comes to get it back and remember to keep his belt polished. The trash talk has escalated into both wrestlers agreeing to a cage match filled with weapons. Meanwhile, there’s a question about Sting- has he turned heel? Will he interfere with this match like the last one?

If there’s one good thing about a steel cage, it’s that the cage will keep Sting out of the ring while Joe and Booker go man-to-man.

TNA 2008 Hard Justice Petey Williams versus Consequences Creed

ccreed.jpgX DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

Consequences Creed is getting a push from TNA and deservedly so. Creed channels Apollo Creed, Mohamed Ali and James Brown with an unabashed zeal that’s hard not to get caught up in. Recently, Consequences beat Petey in a non-title match on a recent edition of iMPACT. Can he do a repeat when the X- Division Championship belt is on the line?

Petey, having survived Big Poppa Pump’s training to become a champion (in which Pump tried to drown and beat the ‘Canadian’ out of him) has gone on to become the X-division champion. Consequences Creed will have to get the belt from Petey’s cold fingers. Can showmanship overcome Papa Pump’s ‘no crap’ approach to wrestling? Will Petey be facing the ‘consequences’ when he faces Creed?

Either way, you’re watching two rising stars in wrestling face off in what we think will be a great match.

TNA 2008 Hard Justice AJ Styles versus Kurt Angle

kurtajstyle.jpgLAST MAN STANDING MATCH

Do you remember a time when Kurt Angle and AJ Styles were the best of friends? This feud began when Kurt Angle and his wife had marital problems which Kurt blamed on AJ. Kurt thinks that AJ had an affair with his wife but AJ has denied it. Kurt and his allies have been attacking AJ Styles in the ring every week now for several months. This is the third straight PPV where Kurt and Styles have faced off in a grudge match. The stipulation for this match is to incapacitate your opponent so he can’t stand up by the time the referee counts to 10.

Kurt Angle has been getting pretty banged up lately in the ring. In spite of his injuries, every time Kurt throws down with AJ Styles we get an instant classic, as both athletes are incredible in the six-sided ring.

TNA 2008 Hard Justice Christian Cage and Rhino versus Team 3D

hardjustice08.jpgJERSEY STREET FIGHT

TNA has the best heel tag teams. There’s Beer Money Inc. and there’s Brother Devon and Brother Ray from Team 3D. These two lovable brutes would be babyfaces if they weren’t having so much fun being bad. This match came about after Team 3D interfered with the #1 contender’s match that saw Christian Cage and Rhino lose the opportunity to be fighting for the tag team title at Hard Justice. Bad blood has been building between these teams over the last few months as Team 3D gave Rhino a concussion and put Christian Cage through a glass table.

There are plenty of things to enjoy about this feud. Rhino has unreal explosive power. Brother Devon is an unmovable object. Christian has great in-ring skills. Brother Ray knows how to work as part of a tag team, pulling tag team moves you just don’t get to see anywhere else. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself cheering on the heels in this matchup.

TNA 2008 Hard Justice The Latin American Xchange versus Beer Money

hardjustice.jpgTNA WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

Beer Money Inc. It’s rare to see a group of heels having this much fun being bad. Beer Money had to earn this title shot rematch by beating Christian Cage and Rhino in a #1 contenders match on iMPACT!. At Victory Road, LAX beat Beer Money in a Fans Revenge Match, that was set up due to Beer Money using their belts and whipping the LAX. After Victory Road, Beer money went on a whipping spree at the next iMPACT!, running amoke whipping fans in response to the whipping they received from fans at the PPV event.

Latin attitude meets beer guzzlin’ crazy in a match that you can expect will be filled with interference and a screwjob finish. When this match begins, crack a beer and enjoy the mayhem.
