----------------------------------

LIVE from Phoenix, AZ! Your hosts are Mike Tenay and Taz! Tenay notes that tonight's Sting & Bully Ray/Aces & Eights match is now a No DQ match. Ohhhhh no...

ROB VAN DAM v. ZEMA ION: X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Well, they could have picked worse openers. Ion's hair is just out of control tonight! This is a HOT crowd, lighting the place up with "RVD" chants!

Ion tries to stall, so Van Dam takes him down by the wild hair. Tenay reels off Ion's resume of guys that no longer work here Ion injured through his run. Ion takes control with a basement dropkick and a corkscrew kick to the face. The acoustics in the ring are freakin' WILD right now! More stalling from Ion until Van Dam crotches him on the ropes and kicks him to the outside. Ion nails Van Dam with a multiple-revolution tornado DDT for 2! Ion fixes his hair and stalls some more. Van Dam tries to go up top, so Ion shoves him outside to the guardrail and nails him with the tope con hilo! Here's a big "Zema Sucks" chant, which is more heat than he's ever drawn in the Impact Zone! Van Dam reverses a corner whip, but the monkey flip is cut off when Ion drops Van Dam on the turnbuckle. Missile dropkick hits for 2. Now both men exchange blows. Van Dam launches Ion into the air and catches him coming down with a seated dropkick! That's a new addition to the Van Dam moveset! Rolling Thunder hits! 5-Star Frog Splash hits for the pin and the title!

WINNER AND NEW CHAMPION: Rob Van Dam - That ending kinda came out of nowhere. But that should mark the end of the Ion experiment, so that's a plus!

Backstage, Jeremy Borash talks to Magnus about his match tonight. Magnus says his match tonight is the biggest match for himself AND for the company! Magnus says he's broken out of political prison tonight and that Samoa Joe cannot hide behind Hulk Hogan anymore.

MAGNUS v. "THE SAMOAN SUBMISSION MACHINE" SAMOA JOE: TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Here's a "Joe's gonna kill you!" chant, for old times sakes! This crowd is pretty cool!

Wrestling sequence starts us off, which ends in a standoff. Lock-up and break, as Magnus stalls. Corner whip is reversed and Joe hits the avalanche/enziguiri combo with GUSTO tonight! Joe boxes Magnus' ears in the corner for a bit, but the ref ties Joe up and Magnus lands a cheap shot. Joe chops the shit out of Magnus, but Magnus quickly recovers and nails a big clothesline! Joe comes off the ropes, but Magnus avoids him with a leapfrog and nails a running knee! Back elbow along the ropes gets 2. Magnus nails a Michinoku Driver for 2! Joe's corner charge eats boot, but Joe catches Magnus with an atomic drop. Big fat senton gets 2 for Joe! Powerslam gets 2! Magnus tries for a leapfrog, but Joe turns it into a powerbomb for 2! Joe fluidly shifts into the STF! Magnus tries to reach the ropes, so Joe shifts into the RINGS OF SATURN~! So Magnus uses his legs to grab the ropes! Great stuff! Joe positions Magnus on the turnbuckles and both guys fight on the ropes. Big headbutt sends Magnus to the apron, but Magnus quickly knees Joe in the head to knock him down! Magnus goes up top and hits the Savage Elbow! It only gets 2, as Magnus is slow to cover! Magnus hammers away some more, but Joe's getting PISSED and he starts hammering on Magnus! Joe grabs the Kokina Clutch, so Magnus comes off the ropes for the bridge for 2! Joe grabs the Clutch again, so this time, Magnus counters with the jawbreaker and clips the knee! Magnus wants the Figure-4 (WOO!), but Joe grabs the Clutch a third time! This time, Magnus has nowhere to go and taps out!

WINNER: Samoa Joe - Great match! I actually wish this had gone a little longer. These two have some crazy good chemistry!

Backstage, Jeremey Borash talks to Bobby Roode. Roode says this has all built up for a year, but the hatred has festered for longer than that. Roode threatens bad things for King Mo if he gets in his way tonight. He reminds James Storm that he's never beaten him, noting that Storm went home after losing to him at Lockdown.

Here's a video package on the James Storm/Bobby Roode feud.

BOBBY ROODE v. "THE COWBOY" JAMES STORM: STREET FIGHT (SPECIAL ENFORCER: KING MO)
Both men slug it out to start. Roode hammers on Storm in the corner, but Storm comes out with a clothesline. Back body drop sends Roode down. Storm gets backdropped over the top, but he quickly pulls Roode to the apron and kicks him in the face. Storm slams Roode's head on the guardrail and the apron. Roode gets some shots in and stops to stare down King Mo. Storm takes Roode down and stares down King Mo, himself. Storm slams Roode's head on a chair. Whip to the guardrail is reversed, but Storm recovers with a Russian legsweep on the guardrail! Storm points to the announce table! He wants the Eye of the Storm, but Roode escapes it! Roode nails Storm with a catapult on the steel post! Storm is doing a MANLY bladejob, as Roode brings in some PLUNDAH! Here's a chairshot for Storm! Roode grabs a kendo stick and brings it in. He sets up a chair in the corner, but Storm grabs the kendo stick and tees off on Roode with it! Roode's slumped over and Storm positions a trashcan by his crotch. Here's a GOLF SHOT with the kendo stick! Storm's losing A LOT of blood, here! Storm charges in with a trashcan lid, but Roode dumps him. Roode grabs the trashcan, but Storm shoulder thrusts his charge. Here's a Hanging DDT on the ramp! Now Storm grabs a metal crutch from a fan and waffles Roode with it before passing it back to the fan! Now both men are trading trashcan lid shots! Storm beats Roode into Jello before giving him a STIFF trashcan shot to the head! Storm's got the crimson mask! Storm charges in, but Roode nails the AA spinebuster on the ramp! Storm recharges with a beer from a fan...and pours it over his bloody head! OWWWW! Now they're fighting on top the announce table! Roode desperately spears Storm, sending them both crashing through the Spanish announce table! All that only gets 2! Roode shoves Earl Hebner, so King Mo pulls him off! Now Roode shoves King Mo, who shoves him back into a Storm Codebreaker! Storm calls for the Last Call and nails it...FOR 2!!! Storm wants a second one, but it's caught and Roode sends Storm into the chair he set up earlier! The tights-assisted roll-up GETS 2!!! Roode places Storm on the top turnbuckle and goes out for MORE PLUNDAH! He comes out with a chair and whacks Storm in the back! Now he comes up with Abyss's old Black Sack of Fun! We have THUMBTACKS! Roode tries for a SUPERPLEX ON THE TACKS, but it's blocked! Storm SHOVES ROODE OFF INTO THE TACKS!!! SAVAGE ELBOW ONTO THE TACKS!!! IT GETS 2!!! Roode desperately nails the Greco-Roman Nutshot and regroups on the outside. He's looking for MORE PLUNDAH! And of course, he pulls out the six-pack of beer! Roode takes a swig, but Storm nails Roode with his own Greco-Roman Nutshot! Now Storm grabs a beer, takes a swig, and BEER BOTTLE TO THE HEAD! Roode's out on his feet, as Storm mouths off to him! LAST CALL and Roode collapses onto the tacks to FINALLY win this one for Storm at about 20 minutes!

WINNER: James Storm - Sick, sick, SICK brawl! Took a while to get started, but that was a fantastic fight! And THAT is the definition of a "blowoff" match! That should emphatically end this feud, once and for all! It's going to take a lot to beat this for Match of the Night!

Backstage, Jeremy Borash talks to Joey Ryan. Ryan says he shouldn't have even had to compete in Gut Check, but 87% of the audience wanted him. Blah blah blah...no one can protect Al Snow...whatever. Man, how great was that last match?

Here's a video package on the Al Snow/Joey Ryan feud.

JOEY RYAN v. AL SNOW
Man, I need a breather after that last brawl. Good thing we have this match.

Ryan stalls. A lot. Snow works over Ryan, as Ryan plays the weasel. Snow beats the shit out of Ryan. This crowd is worn out from the last match, too, and they're pretty dead for all this. Snow continues to outwrestle Ryan. Ryan takes control and hits a suplex. Snow makes the babyface comeback. He can only land 2 of the Al Snow headbutts, just because...well...it's Al Snow in 2012. Snow Plow hits, but only gets 2. Really? Are we busting out Johnny Ace nearfalls for Joey Ryan? Snow goes under the ring and searches for PLUNDAH! He pulls out HEAD! The ref takes Head away and Ryan shoves Snow into the ref. Why are we doing a ref bump for THIS MATCH? Snow slides Ryan in-between the apron and starts boxing his ears in! Snow grabs Head...but suddenly gets wiped out by MATT MORGAN! Morgan rolls Snow in and Ryan covers for the pin!

WINNER: Joey Ryan - Jeeze, Joey Ryan needs help from Matt Morgan to beat 2012 Al Snow? But hey, Morgan was a nice surprise, so this match had that, at least.

Post-match, Ryan shakes hands with Morgan. And it looks like we have an alliance!

Backstage, Jeremy Borash talks to The World Tag Team Champions of the World. Kaz says their team isn't influenced by Twitter! In fact, they're a "bad influence"! Daniels (wielding his APPLETINI~!) clarifies that it's "bad" meaning "good", of course! Daniels bemoans the physical crimes against them last Thursday, but promises to eat their opponents alive tonight...and wash them down with a nice beverage.

Here's a video package on the three-way tag match.

CHAVO GUERRERO & HERNANDEZ v. KURT ANGLE & AJ STYLES v. KAZARIAN & CHRISTOPHER DANIELS: WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Taz says the Mexican contingent has a home field advantage, even though they're from TEXAS, not ARIZONA! We see the Spanish announce team working tonight...even though their table was broken by Storm and Roode earlier. Angle and Styles noticeably have separate entrances. Kurt greets Wes Brisco, sitting at ringside. AJ Styles is donning pink ribbon attire and manages to NOT come across like a pandering douchebag like John Cena! Imagine that!

The champs want Styles to start off with Chavo, so they do! They start off with a wrestling sequence, as announcers point out that it's "first fall to a finish" and not elimination rules. Styles takes Chavo to his corner and tags out. Kurt works over Chavo with European uppercuts and stomps a mudhole in him. Daniels makes the blind tag off Kurt, so Kurt shoves Daniels towards Styles, who makes his own blind tag! Chavo manages to tag out to Hernandez, who grabs the bear hug into a belly-to-belly suplex! The Mexican folk trade tags and work over Chavo until Kaz blinds tags Hernandez. Styles comes back with the dropkick and tags Kurt, who hits a back suplex. Kaz shoves Kurt into the Mexican corner, where Chavo tags in. The Mexicans tee off on Kaz for a bit. Styles tags in, but falls prey to the heels. The heels then start to work over Styles, as Daniels distracts the Mexican team. The heels hit their awesome double-team offense, as Chavo breaks up the pin attempt. AJ ends up in the Mexican corner and scoots away before nailing Kaz with the Pele Kick! Tags are made to Kurt and Daniels, as Kurt takes EVERYONE out! Germans for the tag champs, including Rolling Germans for Kaz! Kaz grabs the ropes and Daniels tries to sneak in with a sunset flip, until Kurt grabs the anklelock! Kaz tries to save and eats a German for his troubles! Kurt charges into the corner and eats the steel post. Daniels holds Kurt, as Kaz climbs up top, so Kurt pop-up superplexes Kaz onto Daniels! YIKES! Pier 6 breaks out! Daniels is the last man standing, as he nails Kurt with a baseball slide! Quebrada puts Kurt down, and Daniels TAKES A BOW! Hernandez then nails Daniels with a NO-HANDS TOPE! Holy shit, Hernandez got major air on that one! Kaz disposes of Hernandez with a top-rope 'rana, with Hernandez taking a sick bump on the floor! Meanwhile, AJ hits a DOUBLE JUMP SOMERSAULT PLANCHA ON EVERYONE!!! GODDAMN!!! Chavo brings Kurt in with the Three Amigos, but Kurt counters the third with the Angle Slam! Now Kurt wants the Anglesault, but Hernandez catches him! Hernandez wants the Border Toss, but Styles makes the tag and he and Kurt take out Hernandez with a double suplex! Chavo tosses Kurt, but turns around into a Chavo clothesline! Kaz comes in with a TKO! Daniels comes in and hits the BEST MOONSAULT EVER~! IT ONLY GETS 2!!! Daniels can't believe it! Chavo climbs the turnbuckles and disposes of Kaz before taking him out with a plancha to the outside! Daniels wants Angel's Wings on AJ, but it's countered! Styles nails Daniels with the moonsault DDT! Styles gets shoved out of a Styles Clash attempt, as Hernandez makes the blind tag! Hernandez nails Daniels with the Border Toss and Chavo hits the Frog Splash for the pin and the titles!!!

WINNERS AND NEW CHAMPIONS: Hernandez & Chavo Guerrero - GREAT MATCH! Everyone was ON and the action was fast and hard-to-follow! Fantastic!

Post-match, Christy Hemme congratulates the new champs. Chavo sends his love to Eddie. Viva la raza!

Here's a video package on Tara/Tessmacher

TARA v. MISS TESSMACHER: KNOCKOUTS CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Shoving match starts off and Tess immediately starts with a crucifix. Wheelbarrow pin gets a quick 2. Tess straddles Tara, because...yeah. Here's an AAAAAAAAHHH!!! spinning headscissors. Tara hides behind Taryn Terrell and gets a cheap shot. Tara works over Tess on the outside. Tara hits a nice field goal kick, kicking a better field goal than Jay Feely, who apparently can't even nail a chip shot at the end of regulation. Tara wipes Tess' face in the mat and grabs the hairlock. Tara hits the Widow's Peak for the pin and the title.

WINNER AND NEW CHAMPION: Tara - Uh....ok, I admit that I took a phone call, but...did we completely skip over the babyface comeback? What happened here?

Post-match, Tara takes the mic and says she did everything for her Hollywood boyfriend, saying we may have seen him on TMZ. So she brings out...Jessie from Big Brother. Um...that's...a twist. They make out in the middle of the ring. No reaction from the crowd, except for a small "Who are you?" chant. Yup. Well, that's a very underwhelming payoff. "Boo is right," says Mike Tenay. I love shoot comments and all that.

We take a look at the TNA Hall of Fame ceremony. Holy shit, it's LEX LUGER! And he's looking a lot better than the last time we saw him! We hear some nice words from Luger, Dixie Carter, Hulk Hogan, and Sting himself.

Here's a video package for the Aces & Eights angle, which includes lots of footage of multiple felonies being committed! Only in professional wrestling, folks!

"THE ICON" STING & BULLY RAY v. ACES & EIGHTS (w/JOSEPH PARK): NO DISQUALIFICATION MATCH
And now, it's time for our latest edition of Foregone Conclusion Theater. Ray comes out with Sting facepaint, just to REALLY lay it on thick. They're trying REALLY hard to convince us that Ray isn't turning here, so they deserve an "A" for effort, I guess. A pair of masked Aces come out through the crowd, carrying a sequestered Joseph Park out with them! They handcuff Park to the guardrail.

Sting and Ray attack the Aces from behind and they hammer them on the outside. Sting slams an Ace's head through the remnants of the Spanish announce table. Ray kicks an Aces guy in the nuts, while the other works over Sting by the announce table. Light "Bully" chant! Ray calls for Sting to pass him an Aces guy, so Ray nails him with a flying elbow. Ray cracks a piece of the Spanish announce table across an Ace's head, breaking it in half! Crowd chants "We want tables!" Ray gets whipped into the steel steps and Sting misses the Stinger Splash! The Aces work over Sting, as a proper wrestling match has broken out. Sting gets hit with a big boot for 2. This is such a bitch to recap, because I have no idea who the two Aces guys are and they're hard to tell apart! Sting grabs a Scorpion Deathlock until the other Aces guy hits him from behind. Sting hits the Scorpion Deathdrop out of nowhere and we have a Double KO! Sting makes the hot tag! Bully Ray cleans house! Second-rope shoulderblock hits! The second Aces guy takes a cheap shot, but Ray takes them both out. Gorilla press gets 2! Pier 4 breaks out! An Aces guy brings in a chair, but Ray takes him out with the Hook 'Em Horns big boot! A third Aces guy runs in and hits Ray with a Greco-Roman Nutshot! He spits at Park, which causes Park to break the handcuffs! Park goes nuts on the Aces guy! Park chases him down the ramp! Back in the ring, it's another Pier 4. Ray saves Sting and sets up an Aces guy for the Doomsday Device! Ray's corner splash is followed by a Stinger Splash! Sting calls for the tables! Ray brings in a table and sets it up! Sting gets pulled out and sent into the guardrail by the other Aces guy. YET ANOTHER Aces guy comes in and drives Ray through the table and puts his guy on top for the pin!

WINNERS: Aces & Eights - We've been swerved!!! In...the sense that there was no swerve at all!

Post-match, the Aces & Eights beatdown is on! We're up to five of them now! Suddenly, the "Not the nWo" porno music hits! Hulk Hogan walks down a ramp, as the Aces come at him Black Ninja Style! Hogan takes them all out and tears the shirt! There's one guy left in the ring! Hogan HULKS UP! Right, right, right, big boot! Hogan motions for the mask! Hogan takes the mask off and...

HOLY SHIT, IT'S DEVON!!!

Ray is shocked! Hogan and Sting are shocked! Devon looks at them all and laughs! Devon yells that it was him all along! Devon rallies the troops for a tactical retreat, yelling at Hogan "How do YOU feel?"

That was pretty cool...but oh man, does it not make a LICK of sense if you've followed this angle for more than a week!

We go backstage to Jeremy Borash, who talks to Austin Aries. Aries says Jeff Hardy has to go through the most dominant wrestler on the roster. He says he'll take Jeff out as an angry Austin Aries. Aries says this is another chapter of The Greatest Man That Ever Lived.

Here's a video package on the main event.

JEFFREY NERO HARDY v. AUSTIN ARIES: TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Yes, you read that right. Jeff Hardy enters in his Nero persona, complete with facepaint, ImpactTron video, and heel music! Looks like he's making a one-night transformation! Jeremy Borash gives us the championship intros.

Big "Aries" chant shows that the Impact Zone mutants are idiots. In fact, this crowd is very pro-Aries. Aries offers a clean break in the corner and Jeff shoves him to heel heat! So Aries wrestles him down and makes him look like a chump. Another big "Aries" chant, which Tenay says are chants for Hardy, showing how much of an idiot he is. This is like The E at their worst. Jeff offers a clean break in the corner, so Aries gives him a taste of his own medicine and shoves him. Aries wants a Test of Strength, so Jeff takes a cheap shot! Jeff is totally working as a heel here and the announcers are completely ignoring it. What's going on here? Jeff stomps on Aries in the corner to major heel heat. Good God, this focus on Jeff as the babyface is just totally blowing up in this company's face. Aries hits a seated dropkick off a sunset flip attempt and chokes away on the apron. Aries hits an apron elbow and TAKES A VICTORY LAP! HA! Aries showboats in the corner and points to the crowd reaction! Double HA! Jeff crotches Aries coming in to more boos! Jeff hits the Brainbuster (Aries' finisher, which goes completely missed by the announcers!) for 2! Aries rolls out and Jeff stands in the middle of the ring to MORE boos! Jeff works over Aries on the outside and sets up the steel steps. Poetry in Motion against the guardrail! Aries blocks Whisper in the Wind! Second-rope elbow gets 2! Aries works the back for 2. Aries grabs an armbar and rolls into a pinning combination for 2. The Jeff Hardy fans try to chant for Jeff, but they're quickly drowned out by the Aries fans! Dueling chants continue as Aries works over Jeff in the corner. Snapmare and second-rope dropkick gets 2. Brainbuster attempt is blocked and Jeff hits the inverted Falcon Arrow! Aries hits a slingshot corkscrew splash for 2. Aries tries to wind up for LAST CHANCERY~!, but Jeff hooks the leg. Jeff hits the 360 powerbomb drop! Jeff makes the comeback to heel heat! Jeff's corner charge eats boot, but Aries gets caught coming down and Jeff hits the wishbone legdrop and seated dropkick for 2! Crowd tries to rally for Aries as Whisper in the Wind hits for 2! Jeff wants the Twist of Fate, but settles for a headscissors taking Aries out. Jeff misses the plancha and Aries nails the suicide dive! Ref counts 9, but Aries breaks the count so that he can hit a second suicide dive! Aries rolls him back in for 2! Aries is busted open! Aries clamps on LAST CHANCERY~! until Jeff reaches the ropes with his leg. Now Aries tosses Jeff onto the ramp. He wants the Brainbuster, but Jeff floats over! He can't hit the Twist of Fate, though, as Aries clotheslines him! Aries hits a neckbreaker along the ramp! Now Aries is on the top rope and hits the missile dropkick! Running corner dropkick is countered when Jeff gets his boots up! Both men exchange blows, but Aries wins with the discus left! A second discus left is caught with the Twist of Fate...FOR 2!!! Jeff wants the Swanton, but gets crotched on the top rope! Aries hits a SUPER 'RANA! Running corner dropkick hits! BRAINBUSTER HITS...FOR 2!!! Now Aries sets Jeff up on the top turnbuckle! Top-rope double stomp misses! Jeff hits a TORNADO TWIST OF FATE, followed by a second Twist of Fate! OFF COMES THE SHIRT TO HEEL HEAT! Swanton Bomb hits for the pin and the title!

WINNER AND NEW CHAMPION: Jeff Hardy - Great match, but a big fat boo to that result. And so ends the three-month reign of Austin Aries...anti-climatically.

Post-match, Jeff celebrates with the title...to boos. Yup. Closing credits are up and we're out!

FINAL THOUGHT

Aside from the result of the main event and the whole new problems that Devon's revelation raises, this is one of the better shows I've seen this year. The Storm/Roode brawl is an instant classic and needs to be seen ASAP. The three-way tag title match was fantastic! A lot of the matches were just great fun and the swerve with Bully Ray...never came!

And yet, it's kinda bittersweet. The title switches away from Ion (though his experiment was a bit of a bust), The WTTCOTW, Tess, and Aries is a little bit disheartening. And man, I hope I'm lucky enough one day to get as many chances in life as Jeff Hardy gets.

The main event, the tag title match, Storm/Roode, and even Joe/Magnus make this an easy thumbs up for Bound For Glory!

Until next time!

Take us home, Christopher Daniels!

Whoa, Ray didn't turn? Even I was expecting that, and I haven't been watching TNA.

The tag-title match, TV title match and Roode/Storm all sound fantastic. Maybe I'll pick up the DVD!

The show is well worth the money, although the booking indicates that the same can't be said for the next few months of TNA.

So is Devon the leader of Aces & 8s? Because if so, wow.

Being that it's TNA I am sure there are a least three more levels of Aces and Eights leaders above Devon that are going to have to be revealed.

Very disappointed that TNA went with coke head Hardy over Aries. Yet, a lot of the blame can be put on the Impact fans who unfortunately came to their senses a week too late. I am not sure how badly this will affect Aries, hopefully not as bad as Punk losing at SummerSlam, but it sorta feels worse. Aries has been the real gem of the show even with this turn him, because WWE turned Punk bullshit. Hardy is their cash cow, but he was fine being their cash cow in the mid-card where he belongs. Also, it says something about a company when a year ago, Hardy pretty much murdered a PPV for them due to his inability to be sober. I am not sure that is some sorta redemption story TNA wants to tell or a company making unrealistic demands to an addict who obviously can't handle the pressure due to the almighty dollar.

I am just glad they made the right decisions minus the tag titles elsewhere. Tess has been ok, but not great as champ while Tara has been a bit on fire and is a good hand. Ion is dead and the belt goes to someone the fans care about. Joe keeping the belt is a good idea. Storm can now move on to something else maybe Aries or Jeff or helping out against Aces&Eights. I am not thrilled with taking the belts off of Daniels and Kaz, but I can't imagine LAX 3.5 will last that long as a team.

I like Devon being the leader for a few reasons. One, it didn't require Sting to come off looking like a moron when he picked Ray. Two, they fooled everyone in doing, so. For months now, we kept hearing Devon was done with the company and going to WWE that he was not even on the radar. In the IWC that we live, this was a complete shock. Three, it elevates a guy to main event status who is a good wrestler and gives him an automatic opponent in Ray, he can work with and has made money with. Lastly, its not Jeff Jarrett. The last one being the giant positive.

Devon's not a good wrestler. He's average, and not very good on the mic. He's also forty years old! This is like the Higher Power turning out to be Savio Vega and rationalizing it by saying "well, he's a pretty good worker and he feuded with Austin once".

And I think it would've been less of a shock to see "free agent Devon" return if we hadn't already seen the other notable "contract rebel" come back in the most anticlimactic role possible earlier in the night.

Devon can carry his own and he is a lot better on the mic than he is given credit for. Yes, Bully is a lot stronger, but Devon helped piss off ECW fans like Bully did and is doing now. No, the Higher Power being Vince is pretty much the same as Devon being the leader of Aces and Eights expect worse. To be fair, at least this was a shock, it was not a shock at all when it was Vince. It also makes sense storyline wise too, Devon and Garrett both volunteered to help with Aces and Eights and Sting brushed them off. So, the question is did Sting finally make the right decision by not having them join or did it piss Devon off he decided to join up.

Didn't see the show, but I'm disappointed that Hardy won the title and that Daniels and Kaz lost the tag titles. Daniels and Kaz are the most entertaining act in the company this side of Bully Ray. Sad that a WWE reject and a botchmaster won the tag titles.Also Devon the leader of the Aces and Eights? You shitting me? I much rather have seen Bully Ray turn on Sting and go with the predictable which has much higher upside than the swerve that they went with. Bully is the best heel in the promotion has had great matches and is one of the best promo guys in wrestling. Devon is none of that. RVD winning the X division title? Feh hope he drops it to Kenny King or Joey Ryan. RVD is hot garbage at this stage of his career. Oh and loljk you realize they were in Phoenix not the Impact zone last night right? The fans in the Impact zone still love Hardy. Sounds like Storm and Roode was a great bloody war. I wonder where each guy goes from here. I hope Roode isn't stuck feuding with King Mo.

Devon was no more than the third best mic worker in the Dudleys ECW act. Gertner brought the funny heat, Bubba brought the real heat, and Devon yelled "TESTIFY!"

Yeah, I think if Devon was such a catch, people would have been (1) a lot more pissed he was leaving TNA or (2) a lot more exciting he was coming to WWE.

Saw this live. Movie theater here had it.

The three hours blew by and I walked away happen even with the nobody Big Brother guy, Devon, and Crack Hardy winning the title.

The Phoenix crowd was almost as good as Miami's Mania crowd. This should teach TNA about the dumbass Impact Zone not being what you use to measure who to push. So glad they shit all over Hardy. Other highlights from this crowd....

"THIS IS ACKWARD!" after the Devon reveal.

Devon being a member of A & 8's makes sense if this really is a group of disgruntled former or current talent.
i expect Monty Brown and Petey Williams to make an appearance soon.

Agreed. It would make everyone wonder what former TNA star will be next. Raven? Konnan?

Someone earlier in the thread said something to the effect of, "Devon was a nice surprise, but it doesn't make sense if you've been following TNA for more than a week."

I haven't been closely following TNA, but it occurs to me that just because Devon was unmasked as an Aces & Eights member on Sunday, it doesn't necessarily follow that he's been one from the start. Right?

Didn't see it, but from the writeup above:


    Devon yells that it was him all along! Devon rallies the troops for a tactical retreat, yelling at Hogan "How do YOU feel?"


If that's exactly as it happened, then ... yeah, it follows. lol.

Ion/RVD was decent but paled in comparison to what X matches have been in the past. Would have liked to see Sonjay in it personally.
Magnus/Joe was solid but the whole point of the TV Title belt has been lost on TNA IMO.
Storm and Roode tore the house down. Match of the night.
Ryan/Snow was solid but following the bloodbath made it a popcorn match, still it did what it set out to accomplish.
Tag Title match was another top notch one. Chavo being there has made Hernandez 100% better. I just wish that they didn't forget Rosita is still on the roster I'd like to see her at least come out with them if not actually be ringside during the match.
The Knockout's match was all Tara so it was pretty fun for me. I'm more a fan of Brooke the person than Miss Tessmacher the wrestler so I'm glad the belt is back on someone I see as really being worthy of it.
I HATE the entire Aces & 8's program. Bully Ray is doing great despite the idiocy of it all and Sting held up his end of things in the ring as well but the rest was just classic wrestlecrap to me. Hogan I just wish would drop off the planet. Definitely the huge letdown/total fuck up that I expect nothing less than from TNA.
A Double is awesome at everything he does and made the match great. Even though I'm not a fan of Hardy, he performed solidly so the only thing I'll say I didn't like was AA losing.

Well...you're both right.

As the reveal happened, Devon yelled out "It was me the whole time!" So that would suggest he's the leader...

    Not Devon.

    A number of readers wrote asking overnight whether last night's reveal at TNA Bound for Glory was meant to state that Devon was the leader of Aces and Eights.

    In asking around, I am told he is not the leader of the crew and that there is more to come with the storyline. Last night's PPV was simply a way to explain why they now have access into TNA venues.

Stay tuned.

Well, you could make the argument that Taker came back completely different after his long layoff. He dropped pretty much all the UT-isms as far as character goes, didn't he? EDIT: So too did HHH when he dumped the DX stuff and became "The Game.
