NEWS

KONGOH’S NEW MEMBER. TADASUKE. 

Tadasuke defeated YO-HEY in 10 minutes and 18 seconds on the 20th August at Korakuen Hall. Although YO-HEY stood no chance against Tadasuke’s heavyweight strength and Tadasuke could have eventually got the legitimate win, he chose to do this in heel fashion by causing a ref distraction, and then punching YO-HEY on the back of the head. With YO-HEY dealt with, it was on to Daisuke Harada, who had made the comment that in RATELS, Tadasuke had never been anything more than fourth place. Tadasuke was going to remember and not going to forgive that remark.

In the match at Shinkiba 1st RING on the 22nd, Harada proved a little more difficult, attacking the moment he got into the ring and with a strength that can compete with Tadasuke’s, Tadasuke didn’t need to resort to using the referee for his own ends, and he wasn’t even concerned about the win; Tadasuke had gone to the Red Side and came back with new friends. Haoh and Nioh came out and interfered with the match. YO-HEY got into the ring and a melee brawl broke out, as the bell sounded in the background, the new Kongoh juniors knocked both Harada and YO-HEY down and then celebrated before leaving. Backstage Tadasuke said that since they (Kongoh) do what they want, he was going to do what he wants, and that was making Harada get a taste of what it feels like to be humiliated, and if he was 4th, then Harada was 5th and YO-HEY 6th, even lower than them both.

Tadasuke was not on the card in the afternoon event, but Daisuke Harada and YO-HEY were in a six man tag versus Kongoh. Tadasuke made his first appearance with his new friends, using a pistol motion in the Kongoh line up and lurking outside the ring baiting both Harada and YO-HEY. There is a mutual hatred between Kenoh and Harada, and Kenoh took great pleasure in winding Harada up about Tadasuke’s defection, and at one point pinning him down so Tadasuke could taunt him. Tadasuke bought a new dimension to Kongoh, before now all they had ever been were angry they had never had that feel of being actual bad guys who would stoop to win by any means, Tadasuke has bought in the crafty heel element, which he used to the full by tripping Harada, and sneaking into the ring to do the chain elbow drop with his new unit and exiting quickly before the referee caught him. After the match, Kenoh started yelling at Harada and YO-HEY, which caused Harada to lose his temper and charge the ring and attack Tadasuke. Tadasuke eventually threw him out (as YO-HEY was cornered by Yoshiki Inamura), and made hand dusting motions.

Kenoh, loving every moment of this victory over Harada, introduced Tadasuke as the new member of KONGOH, and said that he had joined because he wanted his own freedom to do what he wanted, and in Kongoh he would make the NOAH ring shine like a diamond and never “in fourth place”. Backstage, Harada said sarcastically that he was happy that Tadasuke had found “new friends”, but the fact would always remain; he would always be “fourth place”. The war between Harada, YO-HEY and Kongoh (Haoh, Nioh and Tadasuke) will continue in Kawasaki on the 30th. Fans are predicting another twist to the story.

Tadasuke has confirmed he will not be changing his ring name.

GOLD FEVER: FULL THROTTLE GET THEIR TAG TITLE CHALLENGE

Hajime Ohara caused shock waves when he got Yoshinari Ogawa (the master of nasty submission moves), to tap out on the 22nd in Shinkiba. No longer able to ignore FULL THROTTLE’S challenge which Kotoge made on the spot, (at the start of the match Yoshinari Ogawa’s reaction to Atsushi Kotoge was very very funny), the challenge has been set for the 30th in Kawasaki. The title challenge now means that all of FULL THROTTLE, will have the chance to take all the belts from STINGER. While Yoshioka wants the belt as it will be his first in NOAH and it will place him at the centre of the NOAH juniors, and Kotoge wants it to cement his leadership and the unit’s credibility as a force to be reckoned with by ending STINGER’S dominance, Hajime Ohara wants it because the title match is not only taking place in his hometown, but Kultz Kawasaki is the event he has been helping to arrange for the past three years and it has become very iconic as NOAH’s last event of the summer before the N-1 Victory begins. A title match there has been something he has been hoping to arrange since 2018.

~ Go Shiozaki almost fell over at the AXIZ talk at MEGARAGE when he and Katsuhiko Nakajima took the stage.

~ Mohammed Yone was presented with flowers by Naomichi Marufuji for his 25th anniversary. This was apparently a complete surprise to him. He was planning a special box office to commemorate it, but factors such as change of NOAH ownership and the Coronavirus prevented this.

~ NOAH referee, Shu Nishinaga, also celebrated an anniversary in wrestling this past week (20th August), with a milestone of thirty years in wrestling. Having been part of the walkout from All Japan to NOAH, twenty years of his career has been in NOAH.

~ Unsurprisingly, Kenoh has decided that CyberFight are his enemies and exist solely to keep him and Kongoh down. He also isn’t too pleased that Kazushi Sakuraba would rather challenge for the GHC Heavyweight Tags and not the GHC National.

~ Yoshiki Inamura has voiced for the first time ever his own dissatisfaction with NOAH’s management, asking why THE TOUGH were not given a shot at the tag titles.

~ Takashi Sugiura told Go Shiozaki, “What is this “I AM NOAH?” Asshole, I’ve been doing this for 20 years.”

~ Naomichi Marufuji and HARASHIMA will have their replacement tag against CIMA and the HAYATA like Soma Takao on the 3rd November 2020 at DDT’S Ultimate Party 2020. The match had to be postponed from earlier in the year due to the Coronavirus.

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 4.18.2024

Motor City Machine Guns either go out on their backs, or head to Rebellion as champs! Lets see how they finish their current run in TNA!

Published

on

No burying the lead here! The Main Event is The System versus Motor City Machine Guns, and it’s the Go Home episode before Rebellion! So we’re guaranteed a damn good tag match, and we should get either new wrinkles, or ways to keep the storylines cooking going into the Pay-per-View.

With all the rumors and innuendo about the Guns being on their way out, I think we all assume that MCMG is losing, but my inner fanboy is still excited.

Ratings:

  • Little Guido w/New FBI vs Hammerstone: Hammerstone wins via Torture Rack – SQUASH
  • LSG vs Joe Hendry: Hendry wins via Standing Ovation – SQUASH
  • Mustafa Ali & GYV vs Cody Deaner, Jake Something & Rhyno: Ali wins via 450 Splash – ** 3/4
  • Rosemary w/Havok vs Jody Threat w/Dani Luna: Rosemary wins via Spear – ***
  • Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) w/Alisha Edwards: System wins via Roster Cut + Knee Party – *** 1/4

 

Results:

So we kick off the match with Josh coming out to commentary again to watch Hammerstone’s match. They really need a new way to try and keep heat without reusing the same tired gimmick of “ring side seat” to a Squash match.

Little Guido w/New FBI vs Hammerstone

Guido tries to shoot the half, but Hammerstone shrugs him off, lifts him like a child and runs him into a corner, few short shots and then just tosses him across the ring. Hammer gets a little distracted talking smack to Josh and eats a foot, but then tosses Guido with the ole Sack of Shit move and keeps working over Guido.

Hammer shoves Clayton, and provokes him to push him back right in front of the referee. She ejects them, Guido tries to take advantage but when he goes for the pinfall Hammer kicks out immediately and presses Guido out of thing through the ropes. Continues to dog walk Guido, puts the head gear on the ECW Original and then Torture Racks him while staring directly at Josh, and of course picks up the submission victory.

LSG vs Joe Hendry

Hendry cuts a little promo, mentioning the Fat Uncle Phil joke…something about shopping at the TOP Dollar Store. Solid mic work.

LSG is a damn good local talent, he’s been seen in ROH and AEW in the past (perhaps others, but that’s what comes to mind immediately for me), but we all know this is an enhancement match. A few nice chain wrestling spots early, but Hendry uses his power to stop the smaller wrestler, Sack of Shit into Standing Ovation and the match is over quickly.

Mustafa Ali & GYV vs Cody Deaner, Jake Something & Rhyno

Well okay, having Deaner ask the crowd if they wanted a 3v2 or their third member…RHYNO…is pretty much a no brainer in Philly. But at least the gimmick isn’t quite as cringe as I expected.

Jake starts with Zack Gibson and throws him around. Jake goes for the tag and Deaner asks the crowd who Jake should tag, and the crowd picks Rhyno. Rhyno Whips Gibson into a corner, Drake actually softens the impact, allowing Gibson to fire back, tag out, but Rhyno levels both GYV members and then even knocks Ali off the apron. Rhyno tries to call to the crowd to tag in Deaner and that goes over like a fart in church. He tags him in anyway, and the crowd is kinda dead and doing whatever it wants after the obvious ECW chants when Rhyno tagged in.

GYV take a couple lumps but they of course start to work over Deaner and capture some momentum. Solid tandem work from GYV, they cut off Deaner from making a tag and goad Jake a little to cause the ref to block off the babyfaces so the heels can take a few shortcuts. Cody eventually makes the tag to Rhyno, hot tag, he tries to set up the Gore but the GYV manage to stop him in his tracks and hit an Enzuigiri to daze the Man Beast, he falls to his corner and Jake tags himself in. Jake literally runs them all over, tags in Cody and Launches him from the Top Rope into Zack Gibson. Ali makes the save and Jake tries to get his hands on Ali, but the GYV keep throwing themselves at him, literally. The triple team finally gets the best of Jake, they hit 3 Dives and then post Jake, so they gather around Cody like hyenas.

They forgot about Rhyno, he’s set up for a Gore, he Gores Drake, Gibson and Ali take out Rhyno, but then Cody starts to fight back. Ali stops Deaner’s offense with an Avalanche Sunset Bomb, then hits his 450 Splash. Jake barely misses being able to break up the pin.

Rosemary w/Havok vs Jody Threat w/Dani Luna

Jody tries to start quickly with Shoulder Tackles, Lariats and Scoop Slams, and it does seem somewhat effective. Rosemary is having trouble finding offense against the intensity, but she keeps kicking out. Shotgun Dropkick finally gives Rosemary an opening, she goes into full mount and rains down strikes. Rosemary shoves Jody into a corner and Bites her in the corner. Jody tries to fight out, they go across and Rosemary catches her with the legs and puts her in the Upside Down. Splash in the corner from Rosemary, Exploder Suplex and Jody is eating a lot of offense.

Rosemary looks like she’s caught after she gets tripped up into the ropes and Jody goes for her Rope Knee into the German, but Rosemary dodges. Rosemary hits her own suplex and pulls out a beautiful Last Chancery! I haven’t seen her do that in a long time. Jody manages to fight to the ropes, Rosemary is a little slow to capitalize and eats a Pump Kick. Rosemary goes flying into the ropes, Jody hits the Double Knees into the German this time for 2, and they trade a few haymakers after that. Jody folds Rosemary with a low Lariat, Zombie rise spot a few times, Jody goes for a pinfall and Rosemary kicks out.

Havok jumps up on the apron, Dani meets her and they decide to step down, but the distraction was enough. Jody turns around and eats a Spear. Rosemary wins!

Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) w/Alisha Edwards

Eddie and Shelley start off, and its a very simple slow start. Mostly an early stalemate, the typical Japanese style the TNA seem to love to employ. Starters tag out, but then Shelley with the blind tag, Sabin Baseball Slides out, picks Eddie’s ankle and sends his face bouncing off the apron, while Shelley sneaks up being Myers and they hit a tandem move before we cut to commercial. Off of the commercial it looks like Eddie and Myers regained control. But a nice Jawbreaker from Shelley sends Eddie falling back into the MCMG corner. Dragon Screws to both legs from Sabin and Shelley, and we get the Dragon Screw dissection spot for the Guns.

Myers gets sick of things, tries to get involved, but Simultaneous Figure Fours from the MCMG makes The System look silly. Alisha does the classic “push the rope forward” gimmick to assist Eddie in breaking the hold. She keeps chirping at Shelley until she finally grabs his foot. Shelley doesn’t take kindly, tries to grab her by the hair but she gets away, Shelley eats a strike and falls back to the ropes so Lish can just throttle him with the rope, Sabin walks over and acts like he’s going to PK her and the look of disgust on her face is hilarious, like “how dare he threaten to kick her”. Would I be mad is Masha decides to team with Lish and they win the Knockouts Tag titles? No, because the Knockouts Tags are trash. But I still prefer Lish as valet/manager.

Shelley starts fighting back after another commercial break, Eddie tries to cut him off, but Sabin clocks Eddie and Shelley manages to make the tag and Sabin comes in. Lights up both System members, Kick off Tornado DDT, into a Running Gamengiri. Eddie tries to counter but Shelley assists, tandem strikes, Double Baseball Slide into the classic MCMG spot 5 Hole Dive! Keeping up with the classics Shelley stacks the System members on each other and hit the Missile Dropkick/Flatliner spot. As the Guns are rolling, Sabin accidentally catches Sabin with his foot and The System take control! They hit their pieces of the System Overload spot, but Sabin kicks out. Roster Cut attempt from Myers, but Shelley is back. High Speed Dirt, Machine Gun Sandwich, but Lish grabs Shelley’s foot when they’re setting up Skull and Bones. Shelley gets dropped on the turnbuckle and thrown out, Sabin eats the Roster Cut followed up with Boston Knee Party and System retains!

Its a little weird to have had the two commercial cuts and the fact there’s still Nic Nemeth to follow. So it feels a little flat, I hope this wasn’t their swan song match, because it was nice to see some classic spots, but it was entirely too abbreviated. 

Nemeth comes out, goes into the crowd and finds a kid with a kendo stick and borrows a beer from someone, so he does a bit of a Sandman tribute. Moose cuts off his promo basically immediately. He throws out the “can’t beat the system” line again, and Nic rolls with the punches well. Moose uses a few cute analogies about Nic having a failure laden past, but Nemeth bites back and its really damn good. He says he can see it in Moose’s eyes that he thinks he’s getting in the ring with Dolph Ziggler, but no, there is no more old Dolph Ziggler, just the new Nic Nemeth. And Moose’s cool seems to be slightly shaken after those words. Good promo.

Overall Score: 6.5/10

So this was okay, if it didn’t end as strongly as it did, I would’ve rated this much lower. Two squash matches in the beginning, reusing the Josh comes out to the announce table to watch trope is boring, hell even Clayton’s shove to Hammerstone was super lame looking. The Deaner match was luke warm at best, but things picked up around the Rosemary match.

Lets also not overlook the segments with ASH & Xia, Jonathan Gresham’s whole deal and EY having to return to the violence/sickness/world class maniac, whatever you want to call it, were all great building blocks. This definitely wasn’t what I would call a strong Go Home, but it didn’t hurt things for Rebellion. The whole injury of Cardona was addressed, which honestly sounded weird since Jordynne basically said she was expecting them to have a backup plan so she has a backup plan. I don’t really like how that video package came across.

But who knows, all I know is, this wasn’t an awful episode, it just wasn’t really strong either.  Here’s to hoping Rebellion Saturday is still strong.
