Tick, tock, tick, tock. The sound all TNA Impact Wrestling fans hear as we make our way into night two of Impact in Vegas. The most anticipated match of the night is the Knockouts Ladder Match between Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell for a shot at the TNA Knockouts Championship. Along with this contest, we have a Joker’s Wild competition and the choosing of a new VP of the Aces & 8′s. Thursday’s Impact Wrestling is shaping up to be a night to remember!
GAIL KIM VS. TARYN TERRELL – KNOCKOUTS LADDER MATCH
There’s something about these two talented wrestlers that when they come together, wrestling magic happens. From their confrontations while Taryn Terrell was a referee through Slammiversary, they have always provided entertaining moments in the ring and out. It’s very easy to see that they bring out the best in one another and if that’s a statement you don’t believe, see Slammiversary, but make sure you have your in-house seat belts on.
What will these two gladiators do now that a ladder will be introduced? A shot at the Knockouts title is on the line so expect the same quality pay-per-view match up but kicked up a notch. Both have proven themselves as professional wrestlers capable of carrying the weight of a division on their shoulders, as well as carrying the weight of the entire show! This should be considered as the main event of the evening.
NEW VP OF THE ACES & 8′s ANNOUNCED
Along with Chris Sabin preparing to trade in his X-Division Championship for a shot at Bully Ray at Destination X and the Main Event Mafia revealing their fifth member, the Aces & 8′s have a big night ahead when they select the new VP of the Aces & 8′s. Ken Anderson and DOC have been butting heads as of late, but one would imagine that Anderson has a leg up on this one. He’s had more match ups and has gotten business taken care of. DOC on the other hand, hasn’t come out of his shell. The beginning phases are in play, but has he built enough of a case for himself for Bully Ray’s vote?
Several episodes ago, we saw Bully Ray and Anderson talk club business with Bully suggesting to Anderson that he should be making VP decisions. Was that a sign that Anderson already has the position in the bag? There’s tension in the air within the Aces through Ken Anderson and DOC, so Aces & 8′s club business should be interesting.
BOUND FOR GLORY SERIES JOKER’S WILD COMPETITION
The BFG Series goes high stakes when 25 points will be on the line. Each in the BFG Series will be randomly selected in tag team matches with the winners moving forward into a 6 Man Gauntlet Match with the sole survivor receiving 25 points.
The favorites are Jeff Hardy, Austin Aries and AJ Styles as they have the potential to shock all others in the series. With a loss to Chris Sabin for the X-Division Championship, Austin Aries will look to gain the advantage in the series by any means possible. The Greatest Man That Ever Lived is making his return to the main event scene. Jeff Hardy and AJ Styles are arguably the most popular in the company, so they will look to live up to their hype and gain the points. Each have strong support and recognition from the fans, so an interesting dynamic is in play as to who will truly dethrone the champion and take down the Aces & 8′s. Perhaps even a wild card may prove himself worthy of the 25 points. The only way to see the aftermath of the Joker’s Wild competition is by tuning in to Impact Wrestling tomorrow night.
With these and more expected to take place, tomorrow’s Impact Wrestling is stacked with action and drama. It is advised that everyone pay attention to Impact Wrestling this coming Thursday, as their may possibly be another shift in the TNA landscape. Tune in at 9/8C on Spike TV for 2 hours you won’t regret.
