@ariacintron: #impactlive Gunner!!!! #Genesis #TNA I knew it
@tnaturnbuckle: Austin wearing his cape maybe he can fly right into velvets open? Arms #ImpactLive #Genesis
@MidcrdManifesto: If Sting really IS leaving #TNA, they are doing him a HUGE favor in booking him out like this… #ImpactLive #Genesis
@ShroomMeister: It’s like #TNA’s trying their best to make Magnus look like a TERRIBLE champion. #Genesis
@RevoltedYouth: Fortunately Sting is “the investor”…or he’s going to #WWE so it’s a Win-Win either way. #TNA #Genesis
@smFISHMAN: If that was Sting’s last match, it’s a horrible way to end the Icon’s run in #TNA . Deserves better. #ImpactLive #Genesis
Hey hey hey
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BRIEFCASE MATCH: GUNNER VS. JAMES STORM
TNA Booking Sheet: Gunner def. James Storm.
Ric’s Booking Sheet: Gunner def. James Storm to keep the briefcase.
Thoughts: Even though I had Gunner as the winner, James Storm took that briefcase down. In my eyes, he should have been declared the winner. What are your thoughts?? Sound off below and on Twitter using the hashtag #TNANews !
TNA X-DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: AUSTIN ARIES VS. TNA X-DIVISION CHAMPION CHRIS SABIN
TNA Booking Sheet: Austin Aries def. Chris Sabin (New TNA X-Division Champion).
Ric’s Booking Sheet: Chris Sabin def. Austin Aries to retain.
Thoughts: Wow, I’m VERY surprised that Austin Aries defeated Sabin and is the new X-Division champion again. I feel as though they are playing hot potato with the X gold or they really don’t have a solid plan with it. Aries should be competing for the world title, while Sabin carries on as the X-Division’s top heel. This is why my booking sheet has Sabin over Aries.
STEEL CAGE MATCH: KURT ANGLE VS. BOBBY ROODE
TNA Booking Sheet: Kurt Angle def. Bobby Roode.
Ric’s Booking Sheet: Kurt Angle def. Bobby Roode.
Thoughts: The right man won tonight. Angle has been in a losing streak that needed to be broken and there is no doubt that these two stole the show. Angle is damn near indestructible when he’s performing and after losing to Roode on multiple night, this was Angle’s night to take the biggest win of the feud. Also, he needs his Hall of Fame spot open. Roode is on a level where this loss doesn’t hurt him at all, as it should only elevate his stock in TNA and the world title picture.
SINGLES MATCH: ROCKSTAR SPUD VS. SAMOA JOE
TNA Booking Sheet: Samoa Joe def. Rockstar Spud.
Ric’s Booking Sheet: Samoa Joe def. Rockstar Spud.
Thoughts: It’s easy to say Rockstar Spud could have taken the win due to interference, but Samoa Joe taking the win make the most sense. What needs to be built on, especially with these new investors coming in, is internal friction. No one came to help Spud, which should begin Spud questioning Dixie and EC3. For Joe, this is the beginning of is resurgence in the TNA main event scene, where he so rightly deserves to be in. TNA also needs a top face to defend the company and Joe can be that person.
TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP/ STING’S CONTRACT MATCH: TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION MAGNUS VS. STING
TNA Booking Sheet: Magnus def. Sting (Sting is gone(?) from TNA).
Ric’s Booking Sheet: Magnus def. Sting.
Thoughts: Well, what other outcome would you expect? Magnus needs heat, especially with the UK tour coming up. How will his countrymen take to him? I’m all for heat and heels doing terrible things to get that heat, but the blunt interference by Team Dixie is a bit much now. There is basically no chance for anyone to defeat Magnus at this rate. However, with the new investor storyline, things will (or should) change. The new era in TNA continues with Magnus still your world champion, as he should be. However, TNA needs to be careful and not make this faction too strong. Or maybe they already have…
Tonight’s edition of TNA Wrestling Genesis 2014 Part 2 was a far more superior show than last week’s show. Not only was this week wrestling heavy, but the in-ring, backstage and video promos were well timed and made sense. Despite your feelings on who won and/ or how they won, it was a very entertaining night of IMPACT Wrestling action. We move on to next week in the UK or Magnus World. It will be interesting to see how the fans receive their champion and how TNA will showcase their muscle in their biggest tour of the year.
