Ok, I haven't seen TNA for a few weeks, the last episode I saw was Styles vs Jarrett title match. So I have a couple of questions regarding the past couple of weeks.

1. Is AJ Styles now a face? I saw on their webpage that he is teaming with Sting tonight, so is Styles now a Face? How did this happen? Was it simply because Jarrett turned heel and Styles is no longer associated with Russo?

2. What is the X Triple Chance Tournament? Is this just a normal tournament with a fancy name or are there some kind of stipulations involved?

3. A couple of weeks ago Christopher Daniels said something about how his servants were messing up and he had to get help from his "brothers". Did we ever find out what that meant?

4. Did Shane Douglas pick his new Franchise?




Oops, didn't mean to post that twice.

It seems all the "new Fanchise" talk is about Shane Douglas starting a "Franchise Stable". And the first member is Tracy Brooks who helped Shane beat The Sandman this past Wednesday.

1 - They basically had AJ push away Siaki and his crew away, making him a face by default. Jarrett is a heel for the way he won.

2. Triple Chance is gonna boil down to a three way dance for number one contender. They had a 10 man last week, winner is automatically in (some guy named X). The 4 last to be eliminated (aside from X) get to fight in two singles matches this week (Low Ki vs Daniels, cool!) and those winners are in that 3-way.

3. With Daniels in this tournament, I haven't really seen much of that. They probably dropped it.

4. Last answer was right, although it certainly looked to me that he was gonna add Michael Shane (especially since they started playing Douglas' entrance for a Shane match a couple of weeks ago).

According to Meltzer, X was Pierre Oulette (of Quebecers fame) under a mask.

AJ Styles over the course of several weeks had been growing more and more disenchanted with Vince Russo's behavior. When Russo stupidly got his ass kicked to the point he wound up in the hospital, AJ dismissed it. Sonny Siaki, Trinity, Legend, and the rest of Don't You Dare Call Them S.E.X. continued to offer their help - but Styles has been blowing them off. Finally, Jimmy Hart took an asskicking from Jarrett, and it was Styles of all people who made the save. No more cheating, helping faces = face turn.

2. What is the X Triple Chance Tournament? Is this just a normal tournament with a fancy name or are there some kind of stipulations involved?

Good idea on paper, and we'll see how it translates on TV.

They had an 8 man Battle Royal, which is Chance #1. The top 5 finishers advance.

Chance #2 sees:

2nd place finisher vs. 5th place finisher
3rd place finisher vs. 4th place finisher

Chance #3 sees:

WINNER OF (2nd vs. 5th) vs. WINNER OF (3rd vs. 4th) vs. Battle Royal Winner

The winner of Chance #3 is the #1 contender to the X Title and gets a shot against Michael Shane.

3. A couple of weeks ago Christopher Daniels said something about how his servants were messing up and he had to get help from his "brothers". Did we ever find out what that meant?

Not yet...and likely won't. The angle hasn't even been mentioned since and I can't see TNA following up for some reason. It seems a likely candidate to be forgotten...unless someone pops up in his match against Low Ki tonight. Perhaps a returning Elix Skipper? (Keep in mind, I can't watch the show until the replay for some stupid reason, so I have NO idea what's happening RIGHT THIS MINUTE.) Whatever the reason, it HAS to be better than the Mini-Onions he was hanging out with.

4. Did Shane Douglas pick his new Franchise?

He's picked one. Some Woman who has been identified as Tracy Brooks. I don't know who Tracy Brooks is. I guessed last week she was a member of Bitchslap but never got my answer. HELP??? There is a guy though hanging out with Douglas. It's more or less assumed to be Michael Shane - but TNA can change their mind on the fly, so who knows.

1. Yes, it was technically a double turn as Jarrett went back to heel when he went face.

2. Basically they fed everyone to Mini-HBK, so they set up a complicated tourney.

3. They dropped it as it was him simply getting punked out by JJ every week until they threw him back into the X division. otherwise i guess it would have been Altar boy luke etc.

4. Tracy Brooks returned and it's hinting very much at Micheal Shane.
