TNA Turns Two
Almost two years ago,
a new establishment arose in wrestling. This establishment promised new talent
and exciting innovations in the sport of wrestling. NWA: Total Nonstop Action
A new set of wrestlers
would arise from the independent circuit and put out top-quality matches for the world to see.
This set of wrestlers stretched from the newly formed X-Division to the heavyweights and all of these new faces were
to be reckoned with.
Since last-year, Total
Nonstop Action, TNA, has now reached beyond the local fans to the cable-wide network.
Just recently getting their newest show, Impact!, on Fox Sports Net, TNA has started to show some of the trump cards.
These cards are the
ones that this sport would have never seen on WWE. These individuals have made
a sport known as rasslin for decades to wrestling and highflying entertainment for the ages.
With this new era,
new champions have been crowned, including A. J. Styles. Styles, who not only won the NWA Heavyweight Championship earlier
this year, has reclaimed the X-Division Championship. A.J., a Georgia native, is known for being one of the innovators of
the X-Division. TNA has started out their new year with one of the X-Divisions
brightest stars on top.
Not only does TNA bring
out A.J., a whole new crew of wrestlers has made it to the top of their field. Names
like Kid Kash, Sonjay Dutt, and the Amazing Red have brought matches like no other into the living rooms of people across
America and across the Globe. This Wednesday night, A.J. will be putting his
X-Division title on the line against Kid Kash.
The X-Division isn't
the only crew starting off the New Year with a new champion. Americas Most Wanted,
one of the top tag teams in the world has finally regained the titles during the initial tapings of TNA Impact!. This duo, which includes Wildcat Chris Harris and Tennessee native Cowboy James Storm will be in action
this coming Wednesday night. AMW will be taking on two of the newest additions
to the NWA locker room. Nosawa and Miyamoto will team up to see if the NWA belts
will be Japan-bound.
Don't think I have
left out the ladies. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, as the old proverb
goes. This definitely will be something new.
Just off a yearlong back injury, Desire will be stepping into the ring for revenge against Trinity. This match will be nothing short of breakthrough for the ladies division when Trinity takes on Desire in
a Stretcher Match.
But what would an anniversary
show be without the heavyweight champion, Jeff Jarrett.
The newly crowned King
of the Mountain, Jeff Jarrett will be heading into the anniversary show against none other than the former two-time NWA Heavyweight
champion, Ron The Truth Killings. These two men have been battling it out for
weeks over Ron's shot at the title. While Jarrett just won the title from Killings
a short time ago, Ron has a craving for the gold, especially when it lies in a belt form with the NWA logo attached.
After the actions that
Jarrett took on Wednesday night against Vince Russo, a special stipulation has been added.
If Jarrett brings a guitar, he automatically is disqualified. But if Jarrett
loses by DQ, he loses the title. I'm starting to love this rule.
So lets recap, A.J.
Styles will be putting his coveted X-Division Title on the line against the ever-vigilant Kid Kash. The NWA Tag Team Champions will also be in action when Cowboy James Storm and Wildcat Chris Harris take
on Nosawa and Miyamoto. Desire is going to try and get revenge on Trinity in
a Stretcher match. Raven has promised a tribute to The Sheik and to top off the
night, AAAs Minis will be making their debut. And Jarrett's Heavyweight Title
will be on the line against Ron The Truth Killings.
