**SPOILERS** TNA iMPACT! Results For Next Week

Thanks to reader Zech P. for sending in these quick notes from last night’s iMPACT! tapings:

Kazarian beat Hernandez in a BFG Series match that was taped for Xplosion.

Knux defeated Chris Sabin via DQ

AJ Styles won the BFG Series gauntlet match to earn 20 points and win the top spot of the BFG Series. The final four that will battle at No Surrender on September 12th are: AJ Styles, Magnus, Austin Aries and Bobby Roode. As the man in the top spot, Styles will be able to pick his opponent.

Garett Bischoff and Wes Brisco defeated Gunner and James Storm in a non-title match.

Sting defeated Bully Ray in a non-title match. Lots of interference, but in the end Mr. Anderson allowed Sting to apply the scorpion death lock and Bully had to submit.

After the match, Mr. Anderson revealed that he will be the man challenging Bully Ray for the TNA World Title at No Surrender on September 12th.

Thanks to reader Matt Pocock for sending in these quick notes from last night’s iMPACT! tapings:

Just returned home from the Impact taping in Cleveland. It was a really fun show (my first in 7 or 8 years) however I’ve already driven 3 hours home so apologies for any mistakes. As a note, the arena was maybe 40% full. Entire upper level empty, and lower bowl only went around a tad over halfway (floor was packed however).

Xplosion Match: Eric Young beat Jay Bradley

After this match Mickie James came out and talked about being bummed she didn’t get invited to the VMA’s, but as a consolation she had a MJA award (small star trophy). ODB comes out and things begin to heat up. ODB turns her back to Mickie and get’s nailed with the trophy. Minor fight breaks out in the ring, and eventually ODB gets the better of the exchange and tears Mickie’s t-shirt off (which revealed another top underneath that was obvious from the get go).

Then we get all of Ace’s and Eights back in the Ring. Bully complains about Hogan’s power trip at the end of Impact, and then announces that the A&8 are gonna take care of business tonight. Knox is going to face Chris Sabin, Bischoff and Briscoe will face James Storm and Gunner, and Anderson will take care of business in the “gauntlet” match.

Knox stays in the ring, Bully stays at ringside, and out comes Sabin for what I assume will be the first match. Eventually Bully tosses the hammer into Knox and distracts the ref, however Sabin kicks Knox to gain control of the hammer and nails Knox with it. Ref saw the strike, and DQ’s Sabin.

Next up was the “gauntlet” match. I use the quotes because the match was a mini Royal Rumble, not a traditional gauntlet match. Every 90 seconds or so the next person on the leader board comes in (match started with Hernandez and Jay Bradley). This was a very long and entertaining match. Some of the highlights of the match included Samoa Joe eliminating Anderson with a head kick while Anderson was sitting on turnbuckle. He took a nasty fall to the floor, and ref’s called for medical. He walked off on his own a little woozy, and you could see he was bleeding from the back of his head. A lot of big names were eliminated earlier than I would’ve expected (namely Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe, and Magnus who was there for the second episode). Final two in the match were AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels, with AJ picking up the win after hitting him with the Pele kick. AJ finishes the Bound for Glory Series in first place!

Next up was the tag team match between Storm and Gunner vs. Briscoe and Bischoff. By now the crowd was getting burned out and a little quiet. A&8 won the match after Gunner took a shot to the back of the head with some brass knuckles by Bischoff I believe. Post match A&8 gestured and continued to yell about coming after the tag belts.

After this match they brought out the final four in the Bound for Glory series, AJ Styles, Austin Aries, Magnus, and Bobby Roode. AJ was allowed to choose his first opponent for No Surrender, and he chooses Austin Aries. That leaves Magnus and Bobby Roode in the second semifinal match.

They showed us a quick clip from the back (our first of the second taping) of Bully riding Anderson for losing the Bound for Glory series. He tells him that everyone else is stepping up, and it’s time for him to do his part.

Main event time as Sting comes out to the loudest pop of this episode. Bully is next accompanied by Brooke, Tito Ortiz, and Anderson. Bully gets on the mike and says that there is no way he’s defending the title against Sting, because he lost that right at Slammiversary. Out comes Hogan who never mentions the title implication, but tosses Tito out (yet allows Anderson to stay) and says that the match is no DQ. Another long, solid match from these two. Sting nailed Bully with a steel chair numerous times at one point, and Bully once again removed the ring apron in one corner (similar to Slammiversary). Sting has Bully in Scorpion Death Lock when the rest of A&8 hit the ring. Out comes the Mafia to take care of them, and the match is once again 1 on 1 (keep in mind Anderson has done nothing but sit at ringside the entire time). Sting once again gets Bully in the Death Lock, and Anderson jumps up with hammer in hand. Bully reaches for the hammer, but Anderson doesn’t give it to him forcing Bully to tap out. Sting wins the match! Anderson jumps in the ring, gets in Bully’s face and asks why he didn’t take care of business tonight, then announces that at No Surrender he is challenging Bully for the title, and it will belong to Mrrrrr. Annnnnndersonnnnn!!!!! Andersonnn!! Good ending, and the crowd was very much in Mr. Anderson’s corner at the end.

Following the Impact taping they repaired the ring for a final Xplosion match between Kaz and Hernandez (as the crowd filed out). Match was eventually won by Hernandez (I believe. Kind of a blur right now).

    Where the fuck has gunner and James storm been? Tag division came to a screeching hault, and these two are being wasted. Is there a reason James storm is like non existent anymore?

    • Grandiose7 says:

      Storm had that "minor" injury remember…I bet they kept him out longer for that. Plus they don't really have a story or tag team to face them. Looks like they are trying to build a team against them, but I'd rather have EGO going for the gold

  2. Ultimate_X says:

    oh thank god, the bfg poster had me worried they'd screw up with aj, very happy he made final four!

  3. JoshuaTNA says:

    I like that their doing something new with Anderson, his character as ray's sidekick was getting stale.

    • Stunner says:

      I totally agree with your comment, it was getting kinda stale. An this new twist may help the Aces&eights regain some of the edge that they lost. Besides this is a make up because I felt, this was the storyline that TNA was going to use before DOC got let go from the company.

  4. TNAbitw says:

    Wait so i know it doesn't matter but who won the kaz and hernandez match the 1st spoiler says kaz won and the 2nd says hernandez won and is anderson out of the aces and 8s or is the rest of the club going to turn on bully

    • AussieWrestling says:

      The whole gang is mad at Bully at the moment due to what he did this last impact. So I would say they would get behind Anderson.

  5. AussieWrestling says:

    Sounds like a solid show. Can't wait to watch the gauntlet match and the main event.

  6. RavenNevermore says:

    Cannot wait to see this!

  7. JoshuaTNA says:

    It dosen't make a whole lotta sense how anderson gets a shot at the World title before the winner of the BFG series considering he lost the series. But hey at least it's character development for Anderson.

  8. hammers362 says:

    Wait so why is hardy the face on the bfgoster ?

  9. hammers362 says:

    Anderson as new champ vs Aj at bfg Aj wins then Aries as baby face challenges Aj then aa vs Aj feud and an8 falling apart . Team Anderson/TNA vs Team Bully .daniels then might feud with Aj and aa and finally become champ then roode super heel turn so aa vs Aj vs roode vs Daniels kaz in between roode and Daniels . 2014 year of tna .

  10. godoftna says:

    Good IMPACT, glad AJ got the win, dude deserves it. With his new (short term)deal in place, hopefully this'll lead to him winning the belt at B4G. Briscoe and Bischoff as tag title contenders…I just don't see it. Guess they have to put someone in there though. Anderson challenging Bully was a good twist, though we all know how that'll end. Though come to think of it, it could end up having one of those convuluted twists where Rampage comes out in Anderson's corner and Tito comes out in Bully's corner and then the whole thing ends up being a scam job as Anderson, Bully, and Ortiz take out Rampage. Bischoff is head of creative after all and we've seen plenty of other scam jobs like that before. One thing that is annoying me a little is using the old PPV names for IMPACT shows. Coming up we have the 'No Surrender' edition of IMPACT. If TNA is going to continue on with this, they should do the 4 yearly ppvs, and then run 2-3 "specials" per year like the old 'Clash of Champions'. Could run a 'Destination X' show on Spike as well as another one or two. Could be a solid way to fill in between the big ppvs.
