TNA Impact taping results for May 22, 2008.

from PWInsider.com

Impact Spoiler Report for 5/22:
-Homicide defeated Brother Ray by DQ. Brother Devon ran in to break it up. They started beating down Homicide until Hernandez ran in. Booker T then came out and Booker and 3D beat down LAX putting Homicide through a table and leaving both bleeding.

-Angelina Love defeated. ODB with some help from Velvet Sky. Afterwards they teased they were going to cut ODB’s hair until Roxxi made the save. Roxxi was going to try to cut Angelina’s hair until the referee took the machine away from hair. Roxxi then laid out Rudy Charles.

-Samoa Joe and Kevin Nash come to the ring and Joe announces the 4 people he chose. (I was mistaken yesterday and it is not an 8 man King of the Mountain match, it will be 4 and 8 were chosen to be in qualifying matches, sorry about the error). Jim Cornette picked 4 and Joe gets to pick the other 4. Cornette picked Tomko, James Storm, Robert Roode, and Matt Morgan) Joe then announces his picks, a man he faced all over the world and in different companies, AJ Styles. He also picks Rhino, Christian Cage, and Booker T. Nash was upset that he wasn’t picked since fans were chanting for him and he gives Joe a piece of his mind, then leaves the ring.

-King of the Mountain Qualifying Match: Robert Roode defeated Matt Morgan with his feet on the ropes.

-Kurt Angle comes to the ring and he brings out Karen to see if she will take him back. Angle says that now that Karen knows her role and priorities she should take him back. At one point Kurt asks if she is seeing AJ. Karen says that Kurt will never change and Kurt says he can change and gets on his knees and Karen walks out the ring leaving Angle.

-Jeremy Borash is in the ring and explains the rules of the King of the Mountain match. He is about to introduce the next qualifying match until Awesome Kong and Raisha Saeed come out with a briefcase. They issue an open challenge to any female in the crowd who can beat Kong would get $25,000. A plant in the crowd is chosen her name is Melissa ( I believe she is a student from Team 3D’s school). Kong destroys her easily for the win.

-King of the Mountain Qualifying Match: Booker T defeated AJ Styles. Tomko made his way down to the ring during the match, and when AJ went for a springboard Tomko pulled him down allowing Booker to get the win. After the match, Tomko and AJ went at it. Team 3D ran in and they started to beat down AJ. Booker joined in as well. Karen Angle runs down screaming for them to stop as AJ is bleeding. She leaves when Brother Ray shoves her out the ring, only to return with Kurt Angle, who has a steel chair. They clear the ring while Karen is attending to AJ. Brother Ray is yelling at Kurt to turn around and when he does he see’ Karen and AJ. Kurt proceeds to blast AJ with the chair. They continue the beatdown and it ends with the 5 of them posing. I thought it was good with lots of heat.

Xplosion: Motor City def. Black Reign and Rellik.

SmackDown taping results for May 16, 2008.

from f4wonline.com

Show opened with La Familia. Edge cut a promo talking about how he was magically healed last week and will be the next world champion because Undertaker cannot use his illegal chokehold at Judgment Day. Teddy Long then came out. Vickie yelled at him for being late. Teddy said he was late because he was meeting with the board of directors. Vickie threatened to fire Teddy and then Teddy quit. Teddy then said that the board of directors have told Vickie that she must either face the Undertaker tonight or she will be fired.

CM Punk beat Chuck Polombo with the GTS. Match was pretty good. It was a back and forth even match up. Punk escaped Polombo’s finisher and hit the GTS moments later for the pin.

La famlia was talking backstage. They were trying to come up with a plan for tonight. MVP came in complaining about last weeks championship chase. Big Show and Finlay came in as well. Vicki signed Finlay and Big Show vs. MVP and a partner of his choice for later. Chavo then questioned Vickie about the championship chase last week as well.

Michelle McCool beat Layla. Match sucked. Michelle won with a leg lock after working over Layla’s leg during the match.

Batista came out and cut a promo. They showed the footage of HBK and Jericho from Raw. Batista said he was going to hurt Shawn next time he sees him. Batista implied that he would be at Judgment Day.

Vickie changed the main event to her, Edge, Chavo, Bam Neely, Ryder, and Hawkins vs. Undertaker in a 6 on 1 handicap match.

Big Show and Finlay beat MVP and Mark Henry. Match was good, especially when it was MVP and Finlay. Probably the best match on the show. Big show pinned MVP with the chokeslam.

Vladimir Koslov beat Funaki. This was a bad squash match. Koslov won with the reverse ddt.

Cherry beat Maryse. Duece and Domino came out with Maryse. Match was not very good. Cherry won with a bulldog. After the match Duece stared at Cherry as she walked up the ramp.

Backstage Kofi was talking with Matt Hardy. He congratulated on his new dvd and called him an inspiration. Shelton Benjamin then came in. He said he would beat Hardy tonight.

Matt Hardy beat Shelton Benjamin. Match was good. Matt won after he countered a suplex and hit the twist of fate.

Main event was next. I don’t know what the official decision was. When La Famlia came out Chavo and Bam Neely left them at the ramp way. This left Edge, Ryder, Hawkins, and Vickie vs. the Undertaker. They fought for a bit. Eventually Taker had Vickie alone in the ring. He went to chokeslam her but Edge hit a spear. Edge then got her out of the ring and pushed Vickie up the ramp in her wheelchair. Kane’s music then hit and he pushed Vickie back to ringside. Undertaker and Kane beat up everyone until it was down to just Vickie. Kane threw Vickie into the ring. Undertake teased a chokeslam, but eventually tombstoned Vickie.

I think this is where the Smackdown ended.

Kane and Undertaker celebrated for a while. Teddy Long came out. He and Kane danced. Mick Foley joined them. Then Michael Cole joined in as well.

Tony Chimmel thanked us for coming. At this point I left. Not sure if there was a dark match or not. I think as we were leaving Mick Foley was singing happy birthday to someone.

ECW results May 13, 2008.

from nodq.com

Highlights aired from last week of Colin Delaney beating Armando Estrada to earn an ECW contract.

ECW Opener:
Backstage, Armando asked Colin if he knew how lucky he was to beat him last week. He said he was an even bigger target now that he won the match. He presented Colin with his contract and asked him if he had second thoughts. Colin smiled and signed the contract. “Congratulations, amigo, I’m going to prove my point,” Estrada said. He booked Delaney in a match against Mike Knox…

CM Punk vs. The Miz
-Punk gets a standing waist-lock and slams Miz down on his stomach. They get back up, still with the waist lock and he takes Miz back to the mat. Again, Miz gets to his feet and this time makes it to the ropes. Punk comes back off the ropes with a sunset flip for 2. A couple of kicks from Punk lead to Miz getting whipped into the corner. Punk runs at him, but Miz gets the boot up and takes control. He mounts Punk and throws some right hands and proceeds to hit a series of forearms to the chest. Reverse chinlock time and Miz gets down in it. Punk right back up though now with a series of kicks. Miz returns with a dropkick to the back and literal clothesline using the ropes for 2.

-Miz sits back down in the chinlock. Back out of the hold Miz hits the running leaping clothesline in the corner. The chinlock is revisited with slight camel clutch styling. Punk wiggles out from it, but gets hit with a series of clotheslines. Miz runs at him again, but Punk pulls out the snap powerslam that’s so popular these days. Punks now back on offense with the whip in the corner and running knee. He goes for the bulldog, but Miz blocks it only to get hit with a roundhouse. A leg lariat by Punk leads to a 2 count. Miz with a roll-up now, and Punk bridges it and goes for a backslide. Miz counters that and runs off the ropes and gets caught into the GTS position. Miz slips out and hits the reality check for 3!

Winner: The Miz

– After the match Morrison came out on the ramp and celebrated with him, while Punk looked on in disbelief.

– Cherry, Kelly Kelly, and Michelle McCool are walking the halls. Adamle says they’re coming up in a 6-Diva tag.

McCool, Kelly, and Cherry vs. Layla, Victoria, and Natalya
McCool and Natalya open the bout. Natalya unloads with forearms in the corner, then tags in Victoria. She leg scissors McCool, then works over her arm. McCool backflips out of the corner, then kicks Victoria down. Cherry tagged in, then slid under for a sunset flip attempt.

Victoria ducked out of the ring, leavinga distracted Cherry to be clotheslined by Natalya in a sweet spot. Natalya (head and arms above everyone else in the working department it really seems) locks on an armbar. The heels continue to work on Cherry. Victoria hit a flip legdrop into the ring. Sabu would be proud. Victoria went for a spot but Cherry got her knees up. Victoria recovered, nailed the other face Divas, then locked on a front facelock to prevent a tag.

She went after the babyface corner again, and this time Cherry rolled her up for the pin.

Winners: McCool, Kelly, and Cherry

Lena Yada interviewed Shelton Benjamin and asked him about not being able to end Kofi Kingston’s undefeated streak. Benjamin said Kofi has a horseshoe where the sun doesn’t shine and he’s going to pull it out. He promised to beat Kofi. Kofi showed up and asked him if that was right, then wished him luck. Benjamin told him to get out of his interview time and shoved Kofi. Kingston tackled him into the wall, then stared down before walking away. Benjamin looked like he wanted to do something, but knew better than to try, so it was a staredown. Decent segment building their tension.

Mike Admale and Tazz discussed last night’s Raw, then ran a video feature.

Colin Delaney is taping up for his match against Mike Knox. He’s all alone, despite the fact that last week everyone was wishing him well backstage. I guess now that he’s a threat to their spot, they want to see him fail – hey, just like real life! They play a good Delaney video feature.

Colin Delaney vs. Mike Knox
Colin tried to start out fast but ate boot. Knox clotheslined him then powered him into the corner. Knox beat Colin down, then nailed him with his finisher for the pin.

Winner: Mike Knox!

Armando Estrada came out and announced that Colin just had his first match as a member of the ECW roster and would know wrestle the newest member of ECW, Armando. He kicked Colin in the head and announced that as General Manager, he signed himself as a wrestler to a lucrative contract.

Armando Estrada vs. Colin Delaney
Estrada beat Colin, then pinned him. Delaney was bleeding from the nose.

Winner: Armando Estrada!

John Morrison vs. Kane
Kane cleaned house early. Miz came to ringside. Morrison fought back. Kane took back over. Pretty basic. Morrison ducked a charge in the corner and worked him over with punches. Miz distracted Kane by grabbing his leg. That led to Punk coming out as they went to commercial.

When they return, Kane was choking out Morrison with a knee across the throat, then nailed a hangman’s neckbreaker. Kane cinched in a side chinlock. Morrison came back, working on Kane’s leg with kicks and a chop block from behind. Morrison went to the mat, working on the leg. Kane battled back with punches.

Kane fought his way to his feet but Morrison continued to work on the leg. He bridged the leg over the middle rope and dropped a knee across it. Morrison kept up the beating with leglocks and kicks. From a story standpoint, this was good stuff. Kane tried to kick Morrison off with the other leg, finally succeeding.

Kane made the white meat babyface comeback with punches and a running clothesline. He hopped across the ring to punch him in the corner. Morrison got caught with a sideslam for a two count. Kane went to the top rope and hit a flying clothesline. He called for the chokeslam. Miz got on the apron but Punk attacked him. Miz slammed Punk back-first into the ring steps. The referee stepped over to admonish them, allowing Morrison to nail Kane with the Tag strap, then hit a springboard enziguiri for the pin. Probably the biggest singles win of Morrison’s career.

Winner: John Morrison!

The champs put the boots to Kane. Punk made the save but was laid out as well. Show goes off the air.
