September 12, 2013 13 Comments
The Road to Bound for Glory begins here. 4 men get the opportunity to main event Bound for Glory, and face the World Heavyweight Champion. AJ Styles, Magnus, Bobby Roode, and Austin Aries all make history, tonight.
We will also see brother vs brother….Bully Ray vs Mr. Anderson, for the World Heavyweight Title.
Do you know who he is? Bully Ray, your TNA World Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring, with Brooke Tessmacher.
Bully is not in a good mood, but he believes he can work things out with Ken. It’s one man’s fault as to why they are having their issues, it’s because of Hulk Hogan.
Enter Hulk Hogan.
Did someone mention Hogan’s name? He wants to welcome us to No Surrender, it’s live, and its free on Spike TV. He promises us that after tonight, we will know what the main event is at Bound for Glory. But instead of worrying about others, Bully needs to worry about facing his brother, brother.
Bully brings up this whole thing is Hogan’s fault, but he wants Ken Anderson to do the right thing tonight.
Enter Ken Anderson, who completely blows off Hogan when he enters the ring.
Bully brings up how Anderson blew Hogan off, and all he has to do to show their unity is apologize, and Bully will forget everything.
That is all Ken has to do? Well, then he apologizes, and he will apologize for beating him tonight.
He blasts him with a hook, and Bully gets away from him.
Hogan announces that tonight we will see a Last Man Standing match between the two men.
Mike Tenay and Taz officially welcome us to the show.
Tonight, we will see a Last Man Standing match for the World Heavyweight Title with Bully Ray Vs Mr. Anderson. We will also see a Final 4 with the BFG Series. Magnus will face Bobby Roode, and we will also see Austin Aries Vs AJ Styles, which kicks off the show.
Here we go.
These two are like magic together. AJ Styles pinned Austin Aries with a Styles Clash on the top rope, pinning Austin Aries.
Magnus is ready for his match with Roode. Sting is giving him a pep talk. He brings up that Main Event Mafia believes in Magnus. He is 2 wins away from getting a World Title shot.
Magnus interrupts him, and brings up that so many people have said he is the future, but now….tonight….the future is now.
Sting digs that.
Roode Vs Magnus, next.
We come back to a commercial break, Roode wants Magnus out now.
Our second Semi-Final match is now.
Magnus pins Roode with a roll up, picking up the surprise victory.
Moving on to the finals is AJ Styles Vs Magnus.
Will TNA give Magnus the title shot?
Backstage, Roode is beside himself, flipping out. Daniels and Roode try to calm him down.
Roode tells them that should be him going to the finals, and this is all Hogan’s fault.
If he can’t go to the finals, then nobody will.
Hogan is telling Manik that he is doing well, and when he puts that mask on, he is a new man. Manik agrees, and he wants Jeff Hardy. Hogan makes the match.
Dixie interrupts this, and she tells Hogan Bellator is taking Tito and Rampage out of the mix to save them for their PPV. Hogan is cool with that, and so are we.
Bully tells Aces and 8′s that he created this club for them, and he knows that the three men, Knox, Briscoe, and Bischoff do not want Anderson as their World Heavyweight Champion, so they need to do the right thing. Bully is proud of them, and he hopes they feel the same about him.
Last Man Standing match, for the World Heavyweight Title is next.
Earlier tonight, AJ Styles defeated Austin Aries, and Magnus defeated Bobby Roode to advance to the BFG Series finals.
Styles Vs Magnus is set.
Mr. Anderson Vs Bully Ray in a Last Man Standing Match, for the World Heavyweight Title is now.
Bully wins when he put Anderson through a table. Aces and 8′s show us where their loyalty runs, as they attacked Mr. Anderson and dropped a Triple Powerbomb.
After the match, Ray wheeled him off the ramp.
The Tag Team Champions, Beer Slingers make their way to the ring. He wants some competition. and tells anyone that wants a piece to drink up.
Hernandez and Chavo head to the ring.
Storm is all about tag team wrestling. he was a part of the second greatest Tag Team in the history, not one though. One is whoever Chaco are partners with.
Gunner is strong, not as strong as Hernandez.
Gunner believes they want to fight, Gunner is all about it. Next week, they will fight, if Chavo and Hernandez win, they receive a Tag Title shot, if they win, they get an ass kicking.
Next, AJ Styles Vs Magnus
Earlier tonight, Bully Ray defeated Mr. Anderson in a Last Man Standing match, and he took Anderson off the stretcher.
Magnus Vs AJ Styles, our main event is now.
AJ wins with a Spiral Tab, pinning to Magnus. Incredible match here.
AJ ends the show with a message for Dixie Carter. She never texted him, or tweeted him after all of the mess that went down. Next week, she better show up, because he has a big message to give her.
The stage is set, Bound for Glory will be AJ Styles Vs Bully Ray, for the World Heavyweight Title.
Just 4 matches tonight, but all 4 matches were important, and to the point. The right man won the BFG Series, but I think it would have made a bigger impact if the World Champion had a face to face confrontation. I truly hope this setup for BFG is not AJ Styles Vs Dixie Carter, because it won’t make any money.
I also enjoyed seeing the Last Man Standing match, and the two men worked hard. I guess the question becomes where do we go from here?
Overall, a very good show and it’s setting Bound for Glory the right way. What did you think of the show? Send me your thoughts.
