Preview for the August 22, 2013 episode of TNA Impact: The Over-the-Hill Gang
Cageside Seats - over 3 years
Previously on Impact Wrestling Viewer discretion was advised, although unless you faint at the sight of spilled Appletini, I'm not sure what there was to be discerning about. Other than the usual TNA-ness of it all. The new alliance between Bobby Roode and Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian of Bad Influence paid immediate dividends, largely due to the aforementioned apple-flavored cocktail. Jeff Hardy was cheated out of 20 Bound for Glory (BFG) series points when Kaz hit him with the drink, then the Fallen Angel threw it on Magnus to allow Roode to put him through a table for 20 of his own. Kurt Angle was written off of Impact the right way, and Dixie Carter's announcement of that set-up the main throughline for the show - how will the Main Event Mafia (MEM) ever manage to fight off those scary Aces and Eights men without our Olympic hero? No one has been able to tell me what happened to Velvet Sky, but the Knockouts tornado tag became a three-way hardcore ...

Precap to the Jan. 24, 2013 episode of TNA 'Impact Wrestling', or Are You Talking To TNA?
Cageside Seats - about 4 years
Hardy! Daniels! Switching Lanes! TNA World Heavyweight Championship! Christopher Daniels defeated James Storm at TNA Genesis (Jan. 13) to earn the #1 Contendership to Jeff Hardy's TNA World Heavyweight Championship. That championship match will take place tonight, and I cannot tell you how awesome this is. Let me rephrase; this will be awesome as long as the feud lasts more than one episode of Impact Wrestling. Daniels is too great at what he does to be stuck in the midcard. He can work the crowd into a frenzy on the mic, then blow them away in the ring. Unlike a lot of pro wrestlers who try far too hard to get over, he's just having fun and letting things come to him. The guy is an absolute natural at his job. The fact Daniels is 41, yet is reaching new peaks in his career, speaks to how dedicated to the craft he is. Credit needs to be given to Hardy for how popular he has remained to the Impact faithful. While he has made plenty of screw ups in his life, and his cur ...

Kim! ODB! Tessmacher! Mickie! Sky! Gauntlet Match! #1 Contender! Knockout Championship! Five lovely Knockouts will compete in a Gauntlet Match to earn the #1 Contendership to Tara's Knockout Championship. The odds on favorite to win would have been Mickie James, who returned to Impact Wrestling on Nov. 15. However, Velvet Sky made her return to the ring on Dec. 6 to the fan's great delight. With the Impact Zone in her corner, Sky seems to look like she will be raising the Knockout Championship above her head very shortly. It's a shame the Knockouts don't get enough screen time. Unlike the females in that other promotion, the Knockouts actually know how to wrestle, and can hold up a storyline on their own. These are actually very talented women, and their work should get more exposure. On the other hand, the only reason Sky probably most likely will take this whole thing is because she knows how to shake her cute ass as she enters the ring. It's a two steps forward, one ...

WWE NXT Universe: The unofficial handbook, 2013 edition
Cageside Seats - about 4 years
It's been a little while now since we last checked in with WWE NXT, so we're very excited to start talking about it again every week here at Cageside Seats. Before resuming coverage with the second show of 2013, let's check in on what you might have missed. Quite a few NXT roster members have shown up on Raw and SmackDown recently; among the things that make the show such an interesting offering, is seeing where these newcomers came from, how their former homes address their promotion in-story, and scouting out who may get the call next. (See what we did there?) NXT began as a uniquely pro wrestling version of a reality show, with "Rookies" competing in challenges and matches to earn a spot on the main roster. All of the competitors were, in actuality, already signed to WWE contracts. The first season produced one of the more memorable angles of the current era in the Nexus, and launched several careers of varying degrees of success; including current Intercontinenta ...

TNA Impact results and reactions from last night (Aug. 23): He's back, brothers!
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
The latest live episode of TNA Impact aired last night (Aug. 23, 2012) on Spike TV and there were some major happenings, mostly relating to the clash between the TNA roster and Aces and Eights. It was also Open Fight Night and Gut Check, so quite a few things went down. Let's get to the nitty-gritty. The ending to this show was a bit strange. Aces and Eights came out to brawl with the TNA roster, then they got the hell beat out of them. Then, out came more and more members, which eventually overwhelmed the three (RVD, Austin Aries, and Jeff Hardy) men in the ring. After, Aces and Eights all hit their motorcycles and bolted, with some members left backstage brawling with the TNA roster. After digesting it, it seems like an interesting play. You wonder what happened to those left behind and what Aces and Eights will have up their sleeve next. Not the prettiest move, but it keeps things rolling. To summarize, most of the show involved Aces and Eights. The opening had tw ...

Over six months ago, while his record breaking title run was in its infancy, we reported WWE was planning a DVD set for the "Straight Edge Superstar" CM Punk. Then in February of this year, Punk himself revealed he was being followed around by WWE cameras for the special which was likely to end with his WWE Championship match victory at Extreme Rules in his hometown of Chicago. The documentary might have ended there but the matches presented on the three-disc set -- two on Blu-ray -- extend forward to his fantastic match with Daniel Bryan the next month at Over the Limit.

Is there anyone left to compete in the Raw Money in the Bank ladder match?
Cageside Seats - over 4 years
The Money in the Bank (MITB) ladder match has served as a launching pad for numerous superstars to ascend from mid-card status to the main event scene. Some of those stars have reached the peak and held strong (see: Edge) and others have floundered following their capture of the coveted briefcase (see: Jack Swagger). In an odd twist, the RAW MITB match this year is open only to former WWE Champions. Rather than try to create new stars, the plan is to use the match as a vehicle to reinsert an existing main event talent back into the title picture. On paper, all signs point to a John Cena vs. CM Punk rematch at SummerSlam to co-headline a card that will feature Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar. The RAW MITB match currently consists of former champions Big Show, Chris Jericho, Kane, and the aforementioned Cena. Ideally, another pair of superstars would be added to the match both for the sake of entertainment -- seriously, can you imagine a ladder match with just these four? - ...

The June 21 edition of "Open Fight Night" on TNA Impact! Wrestling began with a video recap of last week's episode. Hulk Hogan opens the show by coming to the ring. Hogan first addressed what happened to Sting last week. As Hogan is speaking, the crowd begins to chant his name. Hogan calls out Austin Aries for his answer on whether he will go for the glory or go broke. Aries, wearing his X Division title, comes forward and tells Hogan he put a great opportunity out there for him. Aries discusses the importance of the X Division title and came up with an idea on how to go about this. Aries says he is willing to relinquish the X Division title to face TNA Champion Bobby Roode if Hogan allows the next X Division title holder to get a shot at the World Title. Hogan accepts his proposal, but Roode suddenly hits the ring in frustration.  Roode tells Hogan he should be sitting in his office and that Aries' X Division title means nothing.

Your favorite Cagesider -- that's me, you jerks -- was live in attendance for TNA's big 10th anniversary pay-per-view extravaganza last night (Sun., June 10), the Slammiversary event in Arlington, Texas. Being from the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I couldn't pass up the chance to see some large scale pro rasslin' going on in my backyard so tickets were purchased and a couple of friends and I drove down to UT Arlington campus to enjoy the show. Basically, I saw and witnessed things you normal pay-per-view buying schlubs didn't get to experience. I met Fat Jay Lethal for one and also had the most annoying chanter sitting behind me. But before I get ahead of myself, let's start from the beginning... Right after the jump!

As we’re continuing to grow our developmental league, this was just a great opportunity for us to take something that we do on an ongoing basis and let the people see it. About six or seven months ago, we were having some guys try out, and somebody was literally going to get a shot at being on the show that night, and a couple of guys really impressed.
