Lo Ki over Amazing Red

Harris and Storm over the Hot Shots

Apolo over Lawler

Alpha Male over "The Truth" (K-Krush, K-Kwick) (I guess this was plot, not a match)

AJ Styles & Lynn over Flying Elvises
(Lynn was super bloody)

Disco Inferno defeats a sofa.

Monte Brown and Elix Skipper over Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger

Ian Harrison "The Iron Brit" over Bo Dupp (DQ)

Malice interferes in Sabu -v- Shamrock match and leaves the arena with the belt, although he wasn't competing in the ladder / submission match. No decision?

Weren't Apolo and Alpha-Male on the first couple shows? ... Well, I know Apolo was for sure... 'cause he did really well in the Battle Royal, did he not?

they've both appeared before. i think apolo's been on a few times, but i only remember seeing brown once before.

apolo has never looked worse than tonight... of course he was wrestling weak ass brian lawler. no help there. supposedly apolo is a blue-chipper, but the match they threw together tonight looked like a heat reject.

monty brown was surprisingly strong in his segment with "the truth." and the match w/ swinger/diamond was also pretty good. if this promotion was truly national, i'd say that the biggest money feud they have brewing right now is truth/brown. i also like throwing skipper in there as the wild card. the first time he came out, brown looked very amateur -- he looked solid tonight.

Hey Aaron - is that your recap for the week up there?

Where's my Monkey and Thumper?

It's going to be done on Friday night I think. I'm in the middle of getting my house refinanced so I haven't had time.

Honestly though, the Lawler / Apolo match seemed to be more Apolo's fault than Lawler's. I realize that Brian took a while to set up some of his spots, but Apolo had to have had the option to do something other than sit in the corner with his head down waiting for a shot from Lawler... It really looked to me like Apolo was phoning it in.

//edit: Actually, I've just finished CRZ's recap and I don't think I have anything to add. I may do a short opinion piece instead.

I think an opinion piece would work quite well combined with CRZ's recap. It's always nice to get a second opinion on a show that you didn't see.

Edit: Good luck on the financing. Having just built a house in the last few months, now is a pretty good time to be financing.

Just one man's opinion, of course, but here are a few random thoughts on the 7/24 NWA-TNA, # 6:

OK, it's one thing when the announcers feel the need to speak during every pause during a wrestler's promo. It's annoying; at times it's damn annoying; but when the announcers start talking OVER the promos then IT'S TOO FUCKING ANNOYING FOR WORDS! I CAN'T BELIEVE THE SHOW HAS JUST STARTED AND I'M ALREADY PISSED OFF until I realize that it's just Jeff Jarrett talking and he's probably not saying anything he hasn't already said in each of the previous five shows....So Jarrett is suspended for sixty days...Suspended from WHAT??? Does anyone remember the last time we saw Jarrett in an actual match?

Low Ki vs Red, the "Battle of Brooklyn NY", jerks the curtain and is clearly the match of the night, IMHO...Mike Tenay calls the Tennessee State Fairgrounds "The TNA Arena"...I guess that's so we don't confuse it with "The TNA Dome" that they had to vacate after just three weeks...I think CRZ got it right when he called the Fairgrounds "The TNA Shed"....BTW, you can access CRZ's full recap of the show from the main SlashWrestling page, or, if you prefer, you can simply Click Here....Incidentally, this is usally the point in these posts where I tell you to Click Here to read tomk's Workrate Report on the DVDVR board; however, as I write this there is no post from tomk, and I'll just let everyone else speculate as to why.

Jeff Jarrett confronts Ian Harrison backstage, but then backs down to the big man...well, of course Jarrett backs down; everyone knows Jarrett can't be a threat without a foreign object!

Goldylocks does a backstage interview with the tag team of James Harris and Chris Storm where we learn: 1) It was the Hot Shots that punked them out backstage the night of the Tag Team Tournament; 2) Harris and Storm are another tag team that do not get along; and 3) We've just watched another promo that will probably have it's payoff in Memphis Championship Wrestling....Speaking of Memphis, Brian Lawler is goggle-less tonight...I guess it's an odd-week/even week thing.

K Krush: "You know what?" Ed Ferrara "Oh don't start that!" = second place for line of the night....Is NWA-TNA the "name-change" promotion? Let's see, Brian Christopher is now Brian Lawler, Buff Bagwell is now Marcus, and K Krush has just informed us he now wishes to be called "The Truth"....What's with all the super close-ups tonight? I'm getting a view of K Krush's mouth that his dentist would envy....BTW, first place for line of the night goes to Monty Brown for this classic: "If you're trying to go where I think you're trying to go, don't even go there!"

Wow, listen to all the "beeps" during the Lynn-Styles flashback segment...If you're wondering why the language was cleaned up this week, consider these comments Jerry Jarrett made during a recent interview with Rod Siciliano: "Ninety nine percent of the verbiage was created by the wrestlers this week [show # 5, 7/17], and the results were a lot more profanity then I tend to tolerate."..."I will not tolerate or appreciate using God's name in vain, and in one of those circumstances I didn't portray that to the talent, and someone dropped a G.D."...If you're interested, you can Click Here to read all the interview's highlights on the NWA-TNA site.

We get a taped backstage interview by Mike Tenay with Jerry Lynn and AJ Styles...whoops! no audio...rewind and try again...speaking of no audio, Sony Siaki sits in at the announcers' table during the Flying Elvises match, but nobody bothers to turn his mic on....Styles, out on the floor, gets hit with a viscious clothesline from Siaki...Mike Tenay: "He clotheslined him out of his boots! HE NEVER SAW IT COMING!" Hey, NEITHER DID WE BECAUSE THE CAMERAMAN MISSED IT!....So this week it's Styles' turn to be jealous of Lynn getting the pin...I hope the writers aren't trying to decide on face/heel roles for Styles and Lynn based on crowd reactions, because it looks as if this crowd is cheering for everyone...In fact, during his "talk show" debut, Disco Inferno tries to get some cheap heel heat by knocking Nashville and Tennessee, but the crowd just keeps cheering....so, is this going to be a weekly bit for Disco? Because, lemme tell ya, this ain't no "Piper's Pit."

Hey, it's Simon Diamond! What, no stick work for Simon? Awwwww....Hey, speaking of stick work, where's Joel Gertner?...After defeating Simon Diamond and Johnny Swinger, Elix Skipper turns on his partner Monty Brown, holding him up to be punked out by K Krush, errr, The Truth....Definitely not a good night for tag teams....Well, at least we get a lynching; can't beat that for entertainment.

Stan Dupp tells his brother Bo that if you want a match on a wrestling program, all you have to do is bump into somebody...gee, out of all the wrestlers on all the shows thru all the years, it's the character who's portrayed as a total moron who finally figures that out....Stan Dupp becomes the second wrestler tonight to join the announcing crew...I guess someone decided that having only three commentators leaves too many dead air spots.

So onto the main event, the NWA World Heavyweight Championship, which of course means a no-contest run-in...actually, to be fair, only two of the three title defenses Shamrock has had have ended in no-contest run-ins...Hey, look, it's Malice with the belt! Not Jarrett, but Malice! IT'S A SWERVE, BABY!!!


Sign of the night: "Aw Shut Up and Wrestle Already"...hey, I wonder if we can get this gal to bring her sign to RAW?

Well, in a prior post on this board (in the "On the Road Again" thread) I said it was going to be a challenge for the production crew to do a quality broadcast from this site. But, to be honest, I really didn't think it would be this bad. In his recap of the show, CRZ makes the comment "Compared to the Auditorium, this just looks bush league all the way around" and, IMHO, CRZ was being overly kind. For the first time since I've been viewing the NWA-TNA shows I honestly don't know if I'm going to buy again next week. I'm seeing the same performers in the same arena that just two months ago I was seeing for free every Saturday morning. And it's very hard to justify paying ten bucks for that.

Y'know, every time I hear people talking about K-Krushwik's new gimmick, I keep picturing him doing these poorly filmed segments sneaking around backstage "exposing" all the people that held him back, and leaving little signs all over the place with dodgy statistics..

Speaking of which, did anyone ever find out who hog-tied jackie fargo and bill behrens a few weeks back? or is that tna's version of the 'ascending briefcase?'

We're probably better off not knowing. With the way things've been going, it's probably some kind of sick bondage thing, which they'll use to introduce some XPW castoff.
