Hello, and thank you for clicking on to the latest “Insight into Impact” article. In this article, I’ll be giving you the rundown on the action provided during the 27th September 2012 episode of TNA’s Impact Wrestling, as well as giving you my opinion on matches and segments.
LATEST News on Batista’s MMA Debut Fight
The following is from our buddies over at WrestleChat - http://wrestlechat.net/
With the show eight days away, who Bautista will be facing is still a mystery.
Bautista’s original opponent was Rashid Evans, whose main claim to fame is that his name would be easily confused with one of the biggest stars in the sport. He was given the lottery ticket of being someone who had never had a pro fight, but was going to get to headline a pay-per-view. The downside is that Evans was incarcerated, but according to trainer Phil Dunlap of Advanced Fighting Systems in Mahwah, N.J., they were able to get him released based on the fact he was given this opportunity.
Welcome to Laying The Smackdown. WWE Smackdown is in Buffalo, New York this week. Smackdown starts with Big Show. He says he wants the World Heavyweight Championship. Big Show is embarrassed that his last title reign lasted 45 seconds. Big Show says no one is making fun of him anymore and no one will make fun of him when he is the World Heavyweight Champion. Big Show is the one man on the WWE roster who can defeat Sheamus. Big Show is interrupted by Randy Orton who will face Big Show later tonight.
[Hey ramblers, this column was written by myself and George. The column came about when a writer for Bleacher Report posted a column on how ''CM Punk is a weak champion'' so George and I decided to write a chat-format column for everyone to read. My writing is bolded and George's is normal text. It was fun to write and we hope to do another one sometime. Enjoy.]
Hey George, how are you today?
Recovering from a monstrous FATP this week mate, but otherwise pretty good. How’s things with you?
The SummerSlam buy rates have been released and Brock Lesnar is getting a lot of credit for them. With his WWE contract expected to be up around WrestleMania time, one must question – how will the SummerSlam 2012 buyrates impact Lesnar’s future with the WWE?
Where do I start…? Chris Benoit, my hero for so many years.
Still to this day he remains one of the most talented technical wrestlers ever to grace our television screens. His matches are some of the most memorable in history. He is and will always remain the most taboo subject in wrestling.
THQ have sent the following information in regarding their upcoming release of WWE 13′…
As if SummerSlam wasn’t enough of a WWE summer treat, the latest THQ news release will give you even more reason to drool like a hungry fan. WWE Games organized an unbelievable crew of talent to make up quite possibly the greatest WWE panel ever. And we’re ready to reveal the whole shebang, one part at a time.
Welcome to “Ringside Review!” Leading on from our review of Mick Foley’s “Have A Nice Day” last week, this week we’ll be looking at a film to which Foley is closely associated with, so we’ll be taking a look at “Beyond The Mat” directed by Barry Blaustein.
The film follows the stories of Mick Foley in the WWF, Terry Funk in ECW and Jake “The Snake” Roberts who was wrestling on independent shows throughout America. It also drops in and shows the inner workings of ECW and WWF. Read more
Happy Tuesday to ya! Happy Tuesday to ya! Happy Tuesdaaaayyyy! It’s FATP time again with yours truly and yes, I’m in a good mood! I dunno why, but I’m not complaining! Thanks to everyone who helped and got involved in last week’s column by Twitter, e-mail or on the site. It was a blast doing it, so I’ve done another list this week, which is about the most entertaining WWE Superstars of all-time.
[The following is from http://www.lordsofpain.net. Not sure why there is no Raw Opinion this week, perhaps Joe was busy.]
- Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up with WWE Champion CM Punk and Paul Heyman in the ring. Punk is sitting in a chair while Heyman takes the mic. Heyman says this show is coming to a halt right now. Heyman says RAW won’t happen this evening until justice is served. Heyman shows us footage from last week where the referee made a bad count on Punk with his feet on the ropes.
Heyman says calls it a grand injustice on Punk’s title reign. Heyman calls out the referee from last week and refers to him by his name Brad Maddox. Heyman wants the man to tender his resignation live on RAW. Maddox makes his way out.
On yesterday, I attended my first TNA Impact Wrestling live event. It was held in the annex of the Lawrence Joel Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum in Winston Salem, NC. I’m sure it was nostalgic for longtime fans since LJVM was the longtime venue for WCW’s Fall Brawl pay-per-view spectaculars in the 90s.
Before I continue further into this report, I’d like to bring up how North Carolina has become a wrestling hotbed as of late.
