TNA Impact! Spoilers for June 12, 2008.

*TNA champion Samoa Joe defeated Kaz in a very good match.  Booker T came out on the mic and said Joe got lucky at Slammiversary and they went back and forth.  Booker claimed the only reason he lost was because Nash interfered.  They are building Booker vs. Joe for the title at Victory Road.
*Backstage, Kurt Angle said he’s going to take Karen Angle out, but since she signed a talent contract with TNA, there’s a no men on violence rule.  So, he’s put a hit out on her for a Knockout to take Karen out…and she won’t know when it’s coming.
*Former WWE star Shawn Daivari is interviewed backstage, announced as the captain of Team International in the World X Cup.
*The Motor City Machineguns defeated Team Japan’s Naruko Doi & Masato Yoshino.  Really fun stuff here.  They all shake hands afterwards.
*Karen Angle is being interviewed in the back, but the Beautiful People interrupt the segment.  They are upset about Karen getting paid more than them.  They try to paperbag her but AJ Styles shows up.
*Kevin Nash is interviewed by Lauren.  She asks him if he agrees with Booker T saying that the only reason Samoa Joe was victorious at the King of the Mountain was Nash powerbombing Booker.  Joe comes to the ring and calls out Nash.  Nash tells Joe that an apology is in order for coming out.  Joe tells Nash he is riding Joe’s coattails and Joe is sick of it.  Nash tells Joe that he should be careful because he can’t defeat Booker one on one because Booker has already gotten to him mentally.  Joe tells Nash to take his predictions and stick them.
*Robert Roode & James Storm defeated LAX to win the TNA Tag Team champions after Storm struck Hernandez with a loaded boot.  Hector Guerrero argued with the referee, who re-started the bout.  LAX won and retained the titles.  Afterwards, Roode laid out everyone in LAX with a chair, then handcuffed them to the ropes, whipping them with a belt.
*Gail Kim defeated Velvet Sky, then paperbagged her.
*Team International’s Alex Kozlov defeated Curry Man.
*Backstage, TNA champion Samoa Joe accepted Booker T’s challenge for Victory Road.
*Sonjay Dutt defeated Consequences Creed.  Jay Lethal attacked Dutt and challenged him to a match next week.
*Kurt Angle defeated AJ Styles in a Lumberjack Match.  The Lumberjacks were Team 3D, Rhino, Christian Cage, Tomko, Matt Morgan and Tomko.  3D hit the Dudley Death Drop on Rhino, who was taken to the back.  AJ went to hit a splash through a table on Angle, but Kurt moved and put him in the Anklelock.  Karen Angle ran out but Awesome Kong made her way to the ring and laid out Karen.

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.

TNA – House Show results from Lincoln Nebraska.

From Wrestling Observer website:

TNA House Show Results (04/05/08)
Lincoln, Nebraska

Very few people there. I don’t know what they draw so I can’t tell you if this was a good crowd or not, but there were entire rows of empty seats on the floor, and almost no one sitting in the upper sections.

1. Curry Man beat Sonjay. Lots of dance related offense and hijinx. Sonjay slipped on the ropes several times. Ring is very dusty. Fun.

2. Gail Kim beat ODB and Jackie, I think. ODB really looks like a tranny in person.

3. B.G. James beat Kip James. Fine, nothing wrong with it.

4. Rhino beat James Storm.

Intermission

5. A.J. & Tomko beat Joe and Machismo. Really fun match. Everyone did their trademark stuff. A.J. took a muscle buster and elbowdrop after the match. Tomko looks much smaller in person than he does on tv.

6. Booker T beat Robert Roode. Also a good match. Longer than I would have guessed. Booker got the win with the Harlem Hangover. Or not.

Fun show overall. Security in the building was horrible, as are the accoustics. SHOCKING amount of TNA shirts in the crowd. Tons of Tomko shirts. Go figure.
