Sep. 23, 2010 – TNA Tales – A Brutal Beatdown

24 09 2010

We go backstage to the women’s dressing room as Angelina Love & Velvet Sky are getting their makeup done, and Lacey Von Erich strolls in, pulls a chair up behind them, and sulks. Velvet asks Lacey if she’s okay, and Lacey says no, she’s really mad over Madison Rayne getting Tara to beat her ass. She kicks her chair over and stalks off. Velvet said she’s never seen her even the tiniest bit pissed before.

Velvet Sky and Lacey Von Erich are shown backstage walking.

Knockouts Tag Team Title Match: Taylor Wilde & Hamada vs Velvet Sky & Lacey Von Erich

Lacey and Taylor start, Lacey gets an armdrag but Taylor comes back with an ankle pick and a side headlock takeover. Lacey sends Taylor into the ropes and manages to drop down and hiptoss Taylor, then hiptosses and armdrages Hamada. Lacey tags Velvet (who is already in the ring) and she cranks the arm of Hamada, who rolls out and plants a running boot right in the chest of Velvet. Hamada gets a slam but misses the moonsault and Velvet capitalizes with a diving dropkick to Hamada. Taylor tags in and exchanges pinning combinations with Velvet, but Velvet gets the advantage and drops a few elbows on Taylor before tagging Lacey back in. Taylor kicks her legs out from under her and gets a running dropkick to Lacey. Hamada gets tagged in and they hit a double suplex for a two count. Hamada nails an enziguiri and a cradle suplex for only a two count. Taylor gets tagged back in and flattens Lacey out with a clothesline, but Lacey whips Taylor to the corner and tries to go up and mount her, falls off, does it again, and does a bad Frankensteiner. Velvet and Hamada come in and brawl and wind up out on the floor, and then Madison Rayne runs in and nails Lacey with the motorcycle helmet, and Taylor takes advantage of it and hits a spinning kick and covers Lacey for the win.

Angelina comes running out and stares angrily after Madison Rayne as Velvet checks on Lacey.

Backstage, Christy Hemme catches up with EV2.0. She notices that “the boys are back in town.” Tommy says that he forgot who he was, but these guys helped remind him, and Dixie Carter made a Lethal Lockdown match at Bound For Glory, and Sabu will face AJ Styles later tonight to decide who gets the advantage.

TNA Tales – Sep. 16, 2010 – They’re Back!

17 09 2010

Last night on TNA iMpact, the Knockouts had a Tag Team match. Lacey Von Erich actually wrestled last night! As well as a few Knockouts we haven’t seen in a while; Hamada and Taylor Wilde. Here are the results:

Backstage, Madison Rayne tells Lacey Von Erich to get dressed because the two of them have a Knockouts Tag Team title match. Lacey doesn’t seem to be sure about teaming with Rayne as she hasn’t made her decision as in who she’s siding with in this feud. Rayne isn’t going to hear it and demands her to get dressed before leaving with Tara.

**In the video below, you have to fast forward to ‘3:30’ to see the Knockout’s segment.

Rayne is shouting orders at Lacey when she is in the ring with Wilde. Hamada tags herself in and gets a nearfall with a sunset flip. Rayne gets in and boots Hamada in the face. Back handspring elbow by Lacey. She goes for a second one but Hamada moves out the way. LVE is dropped to the mat and Hamada hits a top-rope moonsault. Lacey kicks out.

Double-team suplex by Rayne and Von Erich to Wilde. Wilde gets Hamada in and Hamada brings the boot to Lacey. Wilde gets in, knocks Rayne off the apron, and hits a double-team Samoan drop/neckbreaker move with Hamada to LVE. Then Hamada with the pin for the win.

After the match, Rayne is chastising Lacey. Lacey shoves Rayne but Tara comes in and hits Lacey with the motorcycle helmet. Angelina Love and Velvet Sky rush out sending Tara and Rayne to the outside.

TNA Tales – Is this the Match that DESTROYED the KO’s Division?

6 08 2010

It was supposed to be the most anticipated return in the TNA Knockouts Division in ages, Hamada teamed-up with Taylor Wilde but unfortunately returned in less than spectacular fashion to take on Velvet Sky and Lacey von Erich in a battle for the TNA Knockouts Tag-Team Championships. With Lacey having less ring-experience than and other Knockout on the whole of the Roster. I wasn’t expecting much from this Championship Contest.

Report: Another TNA Knockout On the Way Out?

17 05 2010

For those unaware, Hamada’s contract with TNA will be expiring soon as the contract she signed last year was a one-year deal. WrestlingINC.com is reporting that it’s been said that it’s highly unlikely she will be retained considering she is one of the higher paid women on the TNA roster and creative currently has no plans for her.

Meanwhile, there is talk of using Sarita more. Like Hamada, she is one of the higher paid women on the TNA roster, but hasn’t been used much as a result of her high-end salary. With the exception of a few performers, most talent are solely paid when they are used. They usually make around $250 per shot and that doesn’t include travel/food costs. When you break it all down, that’s amazingly low.

As noted earlier, TNA will be making a lot of budget cutbacks this week. According to a source, the cuts would be made to the company’s bloated talent roster, which boasts approximately 70 performers these days. I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a wild week backstage within TNA. Stay tuned as things could get interesting this week!
