How Will Laurel Van Ness’ attitude resonate with IMPACT veteran, Madison Rayne?

There’s no doubt that the Knockouts have always been a staple to TNA. Being the group of talented women they are, they bring a level of intensity, skill, and beauty to the product as a whole. But lately, it’s been obvious that the Knockouts Division is getting stronger and more competitive everyday. In the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen two Knockouts added to the Roster who have a solid history in the sport of pro-wrestling.

On September 15, IMPACT unveiled newcomer, Laurel Van Ness. She brought sass and a charisma as soon as she entered the IMPACT Zone.

But here’s the catch 22, she was introduced by Maria-Kanellis Bennett, The Leader of the Knockouts. And Maria let the world know that she was there to replace Allie! Will Laurel Van Ness serve as another one of Maria’s peons?

Later on that night in IMPACT, Laurel Van Ness had her debut in a Gauntlet Style Match. We watched her fight alongside Knockouts like Sienna and Gail Kim.

On Thursday, Laurel Van Ness will get another chance to defeat a Knockout. This time, she will be competing against long-time veteran to IMPACT Wrestling, Madison Rayne.

Recently, Laurel Van Ness told TNA Management, “This is a match that I’ve been preparing for my entire life. You see, Daddy hires only the best for his baby girl. The best nutritionist, the best trainers, the best everything. And you see, I highly doubt Madison’s daddy has the black card to afford the best. I mean does she even know what a black card is?! Poor thing! But back to this match with Madison, I’m always prepared, I stay prepared!”

How will Madison Rayne respond to such an attitude? And will she be able to put Laurel Van Ness in her place? After all, experience and strength are highly important in the sport of pro-wrestling.

Watch these two go one-on-one this Thursday at 8/7c on IMPACT on POP, right before heading to Bound For Glory on Oct. 2!

X-Division Championship Match: DJZ versus Eddie Edwards

It’s taken DJZ 4 years to win the X-Division Title. He told IMPACT WRESTLING that he’s worked harder than ever this year to become Champion. When DJZ was faced with tough competitors in an Ultimate X Gauntlet Style Match, his hard work paid off.

But now DJZ has something that everyone wants… the X-Division Title. Last Thursday, we saw DJZ face off against Trevor Lee in an X-Division Title Match. DJZ, a true high-flyer, showed his skill and athleticism throughout the entire match and eventually took down Trevor Lee. But did you expect this?

Andrew Everett cheap shotting DJZ out of nowhere! And Eddie Edwards coming to the rescue! Where did that come from? Surprises flying in from every direction. But, Eddie Edwards had a challenge for DJZ.

A challenge accepted by DJZ! Two friends going one-on-one in an X-Division Championship Match. Both guys, incredible athletes, battling in the name of the Title. Certainly an intriguing match, set for an intriguing night of IMPACT on POP. A night that can’t be missed!

Will DJZ be able to retain his Title against Eddie Edwards, a 2 time X-Division Champion? Or will these guys still remain friends after this match? So much to look forward to next Thursday on IMPACT!

At Bound For Glory, in just one week, we will see two of IMPACT’s strongest competitors go one-on-one for the World Title. This is a match that continues to transpire as we get closer to October 2. These two can’t seem to stay away from each other.

Two weeks ago, we watched as a Bound For Glory Press Conference, featuring EC3 and Lashley, turned into a brutal brawl.

But EC3 isn’t the only one that Lashley has a problem with. Controversy between Lashley and Moose, brought about animosity between other men.

Last Thursday, we saw Lashley and The Miracle face off against EC3 and Moose. A match that was certainly intriguing with all of the history behind these four athletes. But before the match began, we saw a collision in the IMPACT Zone that definitely set a preface.

With a pinfall finish, EC3 and Moose came out on top. But the night still wasn’t over as Lashley attacked EC3 from behind. Security and the entire X-Division tried to separate the two men, but it was almost impossible! President Billy Corgan concluded the mayhem by announcing that there will be a Lethal Lockdown on Thursday. Team EC3 versus Team Lashley. The winner will decide the stipulations for the World Title Match at Bound For Glory.

But who will EC3 and Lashley want to have by their sides during the craziness of a Lethal Lockdown Match? More importantly, who will agree to fight in this bitter battle?

Aron Rex and Drew Galloway Will Face Off In the Impact Grand Championship At Bound For Glory

The first ever IMPACT Grand Championship was born only a few weeks ago. TNA President, Billy Corgan made the announcement of this Title, and then revealed that the Grand Championship would replace the King Of The Mountain Title. This would be bring a newness to the style of pro-wrestling. An evolutionary Tournament style of competition that would have many rules and regulations that must be followed.

This tournament started with 8 men, but slowly began to dwindle down to the strongest and toughest competitors with elimination every week. Now, one week away from Bound For Glory, there are two competitors left whom will face off in the Grand Championship Finals.

Aron Rex versus Drew Galloway! Two men that have wanted to tear each other apart for quite some time! This all began when Drew Galloway attacked Aron Rex after he special guest referred a match between Drew and EC3.

The animosity was only beginning to arise! When the unveiling of the new Title was made, Drew Galloway and Aron Rex were the first two in the IMPACT Zone. They were ready to fight!

With the debut match of Aron Rex ahead, it was only the beginning of this feud. We watched both men advance round by round to make it to where they are now. Aron Rex says that the key to his success is that he can adapt to his surroundings.

These guys are more than ready to battle and that’s obvious! After Aron Rex’s victory over Eli Drake on Thursday night’s IMPACT on POP, Drew came out of nowhere when Aron Rex was giving his thoughts and feelings on going to the Finals.

At Bound For Glory, one man will experience a monumental moment as they walk away the first ever IMPACT Grand Champion.

A WARNING FROM DECAY TO THE THE HARDY’S BEFORE THE GREAT WAR

What has transpired between Decay and Broken Matt Hardy, Brother Nero, and Reby Hardy is the definition of madness. We’ve seen two teams fighting for their demented rights and craziness.

It all began during the Final Deletion when we watched Broken Matt Hardy classify Brother Nero as obsolete. We watched the deletion process turn him into a Broken Brother Nero who would do anything that his Brother Matt demanded. Even sacrifice himself for Broken Matt’s victory!

With a number one contender’s victory under their belt, Broken Matt and Brother Nero were set to face the Tag Team Champions, Decay in the future. But Brother Nero and Abyys had an encounter before they had the chance to fight for the Tag Team Title.

After the Hardy’s defeat, Broken Matt and Brother Nero wanted a shot at revenge against Decay. During a battle with Crazzy Steve in the IMPACT Zone, things erupted!

So Rosemary was at the Hardy’s Estate to kidnap Maxel? Chaos was in full force.

But that was only the beginning of the massacre. A couple weeks ago, we witnessed the craziness that went down in Cameron, NC. It was Delete or Decay that left the world buzzing!

Last week, we found out the fate of the Hardy’s and learned that at Bound For Glory there would be a Great War between Decay and the Hardy’s. This will truly be a night of mayhem.

Tonight at 8/7c on IMPACT on POP, Decay has a warning coming for the Hardy’s. What will be said? And what will happen when they come face to face in the ring?

But today, we learned of another match that will take place on October 2. A Bound For Gold Gauntlet Match where the winner will be guaranteed a shot at the World Title! Not only will the winner get the chance to challenge the Champion for this Title, but he will also declare when the match will take place.

The first time we ever saw the likes of a Bound For Gold match was at Bound For Glory 2015. IMPACT Stars like Robbie E, Eli Drake, and Tyrus were all involved. This match was an intense battle among many men, but Tyrus used his dominance to come out on top.

“Last year I won Bound For Gold despite the distractions and other circumstances that didn’t go my way. But this year, I have Fixed those issues and will be a 2x Bound For Gold Winner and NEW number one contender. #Nuffsaid,” said Tyrus recently to TNA Management.

Because of the convenience of the winner deciding when they would like to challenge for the World Title, last year Tyrus used his shot when the timing was right.

Who will be challenging in the Bound For Gold Gauntlet Style match this year at Bound For Glory? Will we see Tyrus? And will we see the likes of IMPACT Stars that participated last year back and eager to earn the gold?

It’ll be a night full of action, intensity, and athleticism on October 2. You won’t want to miss it!

Maria Kanellis-Bennett To Hold a Public Workout on IMPACT on Thursday

A couple weeks ago, Maria Kanellis-Bennett became the current the Knockouts Champion after pinning a member of her own Lady Squad, Allie. This was a night changed the course for many people- Allie, Maria, and other Knockouts included. This was also a night that solidified Maria’s appearance at Bound For Glory. But we were yet to find out who she would face.

Taking away her role as Leader of the Knockouts was only the beginning! Chairman, Dixie Carter was bound to give Maria what she deserves. And she did just that with a little help from future TNA Hall of Famer, Gail Kim.

So it was set, Maria Kanellis-Bennett versus 5-time Knockouts Champion Gail Kim at Bound For Glory on October 2. A match that everyone is waiting to see!

maria-gail

This morning, it was announced that Maria is going to be holding a public workout on Thursday’s IMPACT on POP. What does that even mean?

Maria Kanellis-Bennett recently told TNA Management, “This will be a public workout in the IMPACT Zone that will show everyone why I am the greatest Knockouts Champion in the history of Champions!”

But how will she do that? And who will be involved in this public workout?

IMPACT Knockout, Allie gave TNA Management a little insight about what will happen by saying, “Ms. Maria asked me to find somebody with very little experience. She made sure that I asked all of the important questions- How tall are you? How afraid are you of Ms. Maria? It’s very important that Ms. Maria look her best!”

Does that mean that Maria will be holding a mock match with someone? And is Maria doing this in preparation for her match against Gail Kim at Bound For Glory?

Lady Squad member, Sienna, recently said, “Holding a public working is how we’re getting Maria warmed up for her big match against Gail at Bound For Glory. Gail thinks she has it in the bag, but she is severely underestimating what Maria is capable of. Maria is not a wrestler and she admits this, but she is a genius.”

There’s so much to learn on IMPACT this week. Tune in at 8/7c to get all of the details.
