Corpus Christi, TX (American Bank Center)
April 18, 2013
Commentators: Mike Tenay, Taz, & Todd Keneley
Report by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com

First off I want to say R.I.P. to those that lost their lives in Boston, MA earlier this week and last night in Waco, TX.

Week 2 from Corpus Christi opens up with a screen wishing prayers and thoughts to the families of the victims in Boston followed by highlights from last week. The announcers run down the show for tonight and then clips of Jeff Hardy being taken out of the arena on a stretcher after the show last week are shown. More clips of Full Metal Mayhem are shown followed by reaction from Hulk Hogan. He shakes his head and comes to Hardy on the stretcher as they load him in the ambulance. Hogan looks on in disbelief as the ambulance drives away.

Devon approaches Wes & Garett backstage and he asks if they are ready for the match with Kurt tonight. Wes says he’s already beat Kurt once and he’ll do it again. Garett tells him that he thinks they have it handled but Devon tells him he doesn’t care what he thinks. He says they need for them to get the job done tonight and they better not dare take Kurt lightly tonight. Garett tells Devon that they’re going to get the job done and the only question is which one of them will get the pin tonight. Devon says he doesn’t care who gets the pin, all that matters is that it gets done.

Handicap Match
“Olympic Hero” Kurt Angle vs. Aces & Eights (Garett Bischoff & Wes Brisco)

Kurt issued this challenge last week against the two youngest Aces & Eights members, which he had mentored last year. A vignette highlighting Kurt’s history with these two is shown before he comes to the ring. Big pop for Kurt. Wes will kick the match off against Kurt. Kurt gets Wes in a waistlock and then elbows him in the back and starts to beat him down in a corner. Kurt chokes Wes with his boot and then picks him up and drops him with a right hand. Kurt slams Wes into the corner and then whips him hard into the opposite corner. Kurt slaps Garett and then knocks him off the apron twice. Kurt puts the boots to Wes and then he picks Wes up and drops him with a Snap Suplex. Kurt tosses Wes into the heel corner and dares Garett to tag in. Garett obliges him and then charges at Kurt only to get Hip Tossed across the ring. Kurt follows up with a right hand and then starts chopping Garett in the corner. Kurt puts the boots to him and then whips him into the ropes and nails Garett with a Back Elbow. Wes comes charging in but Kurt backdrops him and then tosses him back out to the floor.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

Back from the break Kurt continues to beat Garett down in the corner but as Garett grabs the referee to distract him Wes comes from behind Kurt and low blows him. Garett lays into Kurt with right hands and then tosses him into the corner and hits him with a series of shoulder blocks. Garett chokes Kurt on the ropes as the fans start a “you can’t wrestle” chant. Garett screams at them to shutup which only causes them to get louder, and then he gives them the “up you” sign before going back to work on Kurt. Garett hits a Vertical Suplex but only gets a one count. Wes tags back in and they whip Kurt into the corner. Wes whips Garett into a Running Elbow and then Garett whips Kurt into a clothesline from Wes. He taunts the crowd and then covers Kurt for a nearfall. Wes puts the boots to Kurt and then hits him with elbows and body blows in the corner. Wes follows up with a Running Clothesline and then covers him for another nearfall. An “Angle” chant starts as Wes puts Kurt in a headlock. Kurt fights up to his feet and nails Wes with a Back Suplex! Both men are down now. Wes rolls over and tags out but as Garett comes charging in he eats a series of clotheslines. Wes then gets back up and eats a clothesline as well. Kurt whips Wes into Garett in the corner. Kurt then charges at them but Wes gets his boot up and runs right into a Belly-to-Belly Suplex from Kurt! Kurt then catches Bischoff with a German Suplex followed by a series of Rolling German Suplexes on Wes! Wes then grabs Garett to try block it so Garett grabs the ropes. Kurt pulls them off the ropes and hits a Double German Suplex as the fans lose their minds. Kurt hits the Olympic Slam on Garett! 1…2…NO Wes breaks it up but then Kurt slams Wes into the ring post! D-Lo Brown walks out and distracts Kurt. Wes tries to kick him but Kurt grabs his foot and locks in the Angle Lock! Mr. Anderson runs out and distracts the referee as D-Lo slides a chain to Kurt. Garett hits Kurt in the back of the head with the chain and then covers him for the pin.

Winners: Aces & Eights

D-Lo tells Wes & Garett to finish the job so Wes lifts Kurt up in the air and they Double Powerbomb Kurt in the center of the ring! Anderson grabs a microphone and says this is the way things are going to go down from now on. Anderson says Sting left Hogan’s side a few weeks ago and hasn’t been seen since and Jeff Hardy was decimated by Bully Ray. He says now Kurt Angle “lies in shambles” as he taunts Angle. Anderson says if you’re not wearing one of the Aces & Eights cuts tonight then you’re in a “bad freakin’ way.” Anderson says they’re rooting for AJ Styles tonight.

In the back Petey Williams puts over the difficulty of Triple Threats and says you have to scout not just one but two opponents. Zema says it’s a beautiful thing that he doesn’t have to beat the champion to win but the fact that he doesn’t even have to be pinned to lose he hates. He promises that he will get that belt back sooner or later.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

TNA X-Division Championship
Triple Threat Match
Kenny King (c) vs. “Maple Leaf Muscle” Petey Williams vs. Zema Ion

This is Petey’s first shot at the X-Division Title in 5 years and every man in this match is either a current (King) or former (Zema & Petey) X-Division Champion. Petey earned his shot with a win over Sonjay Dutt & Mason Andrews a couple of weeks ago. The referee is wearing a hat with a small camera on it for a “referee point of view angle.” If you remember (or maybe not) WCW did this sort of thing way back in the early 90’s starting with the Finals of the WCW Light Heavyweight Title Tournament between Brian Pillman & Ricky Morton. It didn’t last long and it was really goofy looking because of how big the camera was (though this one is a lot smaller). CMLL in Mexico also used a form of this for awhile where the referee’s actually wore glasses/goggles with small cameras in them. King attacks both Zema and Petey with kicks and punches. He then clotheslines Zema over the top but Petey lays into King with chops. Petey then turns around and bounces off the ropes but as soon as he hit the ropes King was right back on him with a Running Back Elbow. King hits the ropes as we get a view from the Ref-Cam for the first time, it looks kind of weird and sort of yellowish in tint for some reason. Petey catches Kenny with a drop toe hold hanging him up in the ropes and then Petey hits a Dropkick to the back of King as Todd reveals the name of the camera is the “X-Cam” (of course). Zema dives off the top with a Missile Dropkick to Petey and then he charges at Petey but eats a Spinning Heel Kick from King. King then goes for the Royal Flush but Petey pulls Zema down and grabs King in a waistlock. Zema hits the ropes but before he can do anything King elbows Petey and then catches Zema with a Cartwheel Kick! King then lifts Petey up for the Royal Flush, but Petey blocks it and counters into the Canadian Destroyer! The fans go nuts and Petey covers him, 1…2…NO Zema breaks it up! Zema covers King but Petey breaks it up as well. Zema & Petey argue and then start fighting. Petey attempts to whip Zema into the corner but Zema reverses it and charges at Petey. Petey floats up and over Zema and then hits a Spinning Headscissors Takeover! Petey goes for a Monkey Flip but Zema blocks it and sits Petey up on the top rope. Petey punches Zema and then dives off with a Flying Rana off the top. Petey covers Zema but only gets a nearfall and then whips Zema into the ropes. Petey attempts a leapfrog but Zema holds onto the ropes and wags his finger at Petey. Petey charges at Zema but Zema lifts Petey up into a Hotshot on the ropes. Zema then hits a Diving Neckbreaker for another nearfall. Zema stomps on Petey and then tosses Petey into the corner and lays into him with a shoulder block. Petey answers with a series of chops and then he attempts to whip Zema into the ropes, but Zema counters and quickly grabs Petey’s leg and rolls him up into a submission move. It’s a kind of a modified Half Crab or maybe a modified Death Lock as he’s laying on the mat but has Petey’s leg hooked in kind of a keylock. Petey reaches the ropes so Zema releases the hold and then starts kicking away at Petey’s leg. Zema grabs Petey’s legs and lifts him up into the air but Petey lands on his feet as some of the fans are starting to get annoying by chanting “boring” in a match that has been pretty much nonstop from the bell. Petey catches Zema with a series of right hands and then he catches Zema with the Canadian Leg Sweep for a nearfall. Petey hits a Cradle Flatliner! 1…2…NO Zema kicks out! Petey sets up for another Canadian Destroyer but Zema catches him with a jawbreaker. Zema then whips Petey into the ropes and attempts a clothesline, but Petey ducks and dives through the ropes onto King with a Suicide Dive on the outside! Zema then sets up for a dive but Petey quickly gets on the apron and catches him with a shoulder block through the ropes. Petey then slingshots himself back into the ring and into a nasty German Suplex! Petey then dives over the top into a Hurricanrana on King on the outside! Back in the ring Petey grabs Zema by the hair which causing a priceless reaction from Zema. Zema counters by snapping Petey’s neck across the top rope and then he slingshots himself into the ring with a Tornado DDT! 1…2…NO Petey kicks out! Zema goes for the Middle Moonsault but Petey gets his knees up. Petey goes for the Canadian Destroyer but Zema counters into a rollup! 1…2…NO Petey kicks out and counters Zema into the Sharpshooter! King comes back into the ring and nails Petey with a Flying Knee and then he covers Zema, 1…2…3!

Winner & STILL X-Champ: King via pinfall

In the back Magnus talks about his match with Devon tonight. He says that Aces & Eights are walking around saying they’re going to take people out and cause chaos, but what they haven’t realized is that the only person that’s going to do any taking tonight is Magnus. He says that tonight he’s going to take what he’s been waiting to take for the past 5 months, the Television Title.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

Brooke Hogan and Christy Hemme talk about the new Knockouts website backstage and Christy mentions that it will launch April 25th. Brooke tells her that it looks awesome and then she asks Mickie James & Tessmacher to join her. Brooke says she picked them tonight for the #1 Contenders Match because of the heart they show in the ring. She wishes them both luck and Mickie walks away, but Tessmacher stays and tells Brooke how sorry she is about the stuff with Bully. She says all the knockouts are here for Brooke.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

TNA Television Championship
Devon (c) vs. Magnus

It’s been so long since Devon defended that belt that I forgot he had the damn thing. Magnus was in line for a shot at the belt when Aces & Eights took him out last year. As Magnus makes his entrance Knux attempts to attack him on the ramp, but Magnus saw him coming and lays him out! Magnus then nails DOC with a Mafia Kick as he saw him coming too! Magnus Spears Knux but then DOC pulls him off only to eat a back elbow from the Brit! Devon runs over and nails Magnus with a chain! DOC & Knux beat Magnus down but Magnus continues to try and fight back until Devon hits him with the chain again! DOC & Knux Double Chokeslam Magnus onto the ramp! Samoa Joe runs out and chases Aces & Eights off. Joe and the referee check on Magnus and then Joe dares Devon to come and try him.

Winner: NO CONTEST

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

A replay of what just went down with Magnus is shown and then Samoa Joe is shown screaming in the back. He calls them cowards and chumps, not champions. Joe says they claim to be the best but then they pull something like that. He says he’s talked to the powers that be and told them what he wants and they’ve granted it. He says that Devon’s transgressions will be painted in blood tonight and he comes to collect from Devon. Joe says he’ll see him in the ring.

A video package highlighting the AJ Styles drama is shown.

An update on Velvet Sky’s knee injury from a couple of weeks ago is shown. She says her knee feels numb as the trainer checks it out.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

Knockouts Title #1 Contenders Match
Miss Tessmacher vs. “Hardcore Country” Mickie James
Special Referee: ODB

Both of these girls are former Knockouts Champions. ODB is the referee again this week. Mickie & Tessmacher lockup and Tessmacher forces Mickie in the corner. They break clean and then they lockup again and this time Mickie forces Tessmacher into the corner. Another clean break and a third lockup leads to Mickie attempting an armdrag, but Tessmacher holds onto the lockup. She tosses Mickie as well but Mickie holds. Tessmacher uses the Collar & Elbow tieup on the mat to try a pin, but Mickie bridges up and then they both get to their feet and Mickie gets her foot on the rope to force a break. Mickie and Tessmacher argue with ODB and Tessmacher uses that to roll Mickie up! 1…2…NO Mickie kicks out and then kicks Tessmacher in the gut. Mickie gets Tessmacher in a wristlock and then pulls her into a shoulder block repeatedly. Mickie then hooks Brooke’s arm and rolls her into an Armbar, but Tessmacher quickly rolls over and grabs the ropes. Tessmacher rolls to the outside to catch a breather and then she trips Mickie and pulls her to the outside. They exchange forearms and then they start brawling around until ODB slides out and separates them. She tells them to get back in the ring and Tessmacher hits Mickie with a series of forearms. Tessmacher attempts to whip Mickie into the corner but she reverses it and then charges at Tessmacher, but she moves out of the way and puts the boots to Mickie. Tessmacher hits a Falling Facebuster out of the corner, 1…2…NO Mickie kicks out! Tessmacher hits a clothesline in the corner and then she hit’s the Asstastic! Gail grabs Mickie by the legs and pulls her into the air into a slam for another nearfall. Tessmacher covers Mickie again and again only gets a two count. Tessmacher tries to slam Mickie in the corner, but Mickie blocks it and slams her into the turnbuckles. Mickie does the same on the opposite side and then follows up with a Flapjack. Mickie climbs up top and dives off with a Diving Thesz Press! 1…2…NO Tessmacher kicks out! Mickie hits Tessmacher with a series of right hands but ODB break it up because she’s using a closed fist. Tessmacher gets back up and they clothesline each other at the same time. Mickie gets back to her feet first and then she slams Tessmacher’s face into the mat, but Tessmacher answers with the same move. Tessmacher then goes for the Tess-Shocker, but Mickie blocks it and slams Tessmacher into the turnbuckles. Mickie then goes for the Mickie-DT, but Tessmacher blocks it and attempts to counter into a rollup. Mickie blocks the roll up and sets down on her for the pin!

Winner: Mickie James via pinfall

Backstage AJ Styles prepares for his match when Bad Influence walks up behind him with a Bad Influence t-shirt. Daniels says “the band is back together” and then Bad Influence starts signing the old South Park “we’re the three best friends anybody could have” song.

Joseph Park is talking to someone on the phone when Devon snatches his phone away and says they told him once to stay out of family business. Park says he’s sticking up for her because they defrauded her, but Bully hits him from behind. Bully says he’s Brooke’s husband and HE knows what’s best for her. Devon chokes Park with a chain and Ray tells Park to consider this a threat not a promise. He tells him again to stay out of the family business and then Devon slams him into a shower wall. Devon turns the shower on Park as they laugh at him and ask him if he’s going to cry.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

Backstage Mickie James says it’s been forgotten who she is and what she represents and tonight is the beginning steps on getting her belt back. She says she feels bad for Velvet because she knows what it’s like to be injured, but you have to fight through injuries as a champion. She says she feels like she’s been pushed to the side over the last year and she’s tired of being overlooked. She’s about damn time that she shines.

James Storm says this thing with AJ has been going on for over a month and he tried to talk to him like man, and now it’s time to do it the “Cowboy way.” He says after he knocks AJ out with the Last Call maybe it will knock a little sense into him. He finishes with “sorry about his damn luck.”

Footage of the Tag Titles Match from last week is shown.

Bad Influence make their way down to the ring wearing their new t-shirts. Daniels says the Year of Bad Influence continues tonight and it’s great to be them because the fans love them. He mentions their “sweet new shirts” and then says the new Bad Influence movie is in production. He says that they are in talks with Morgan Freeman to play the role of Dixie Carter (oh damn) but the cherry on the Sunday that is Bad Influence’s lives is they are so close to convincing AJ to join the “band” and be by their side again. Kazarian says they even have a Bad Influence shirt for AJ “black and yellow just like Rocky Balboa, son!”

Kazarian says now that the Avengers are on the verge of assembling and the “O.G.’s of Impact are ready to ride again” their first matter of business involves their old “amigos…Churo Guerrero & Juan Hernandez.” He says as soon as they have the “webos” (balls) to give them their title shot they will become the World Tag Team Champions of the World Pt. 2. He tells all the “choads” in the crowd that they now have permission to worship them, but then Aries & Roode make their way out to the ring.

Roode calls them “dumb and dumber” and they can decide who is who, but before anybody can worship anyone he has to be the bearer of bad news. He guesses that they haven’t received the bad news that Bad Influence aren’t the #1 Contenders. He says last week Chavo & Hernandez “fluked” a victory over Dirty Heels so before anyone can get a shot they get their rematch. Daniels says he respects Bobby but his opinion would have a lot more weight behind it if he wasn’t Canadian (true). He says everyone knows that a Canadian’s opinion is only worth 3 quarters of an American’s opinion. Aries says luckily for them his opinion is worth 1 & ¼ quarters so that’s two whole parts but Kazarian says “no it’s not…that’s just terrible.” Aries says he’s not going to lie because Bad Influence has a more successful tag team career and maybe if they shared more “quality, private secluded time together” like Bad Influence maybe they would be a “well oiled, well lubed” machine like them.

Kazarian says the only reason Bobby cut his hair was because Kazarian did it first and Aries is just a “dirty vegan.” Aries says yeah he’s a vegan and Bad Influence “put the meat” in their mouths but he doesn’t. Roode liked that one. Kaz says they don’t even have matching tights and Aries wears sunglasses inside because he’s an asshole. Aries says he is an asshole and asks him what he’s going to do about it. Chavo & Hernandez walk out behind Dirty Heels so Bad Influence back away. Chavo & Hernandez attack the former champs and clean the ring.

Chavo holds up his belt and says THAT is why they’re better.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

TNA wrestlers talk about Aces & Eights. Kenny King says they’re trying to take everybody out and they’re using bats and hammers to do it instead of fists. King says you don’t have to like everyone you can get in the ring with but you should have some respect because “this is a warrior’s craft.” King says they have no respect and Gail Kim talks about seeing Jeff Hardy getting taking out on an ambulance. She says something like that is never a good thing and she feels bad for him. Roode says he saw this stuff with Aces & Eights coming a long time ago and now it’s getting really serious because guys are getting seriously hurt, and they’re taking more control week after week. He says they’re in complete control right now and it’s a dangerous situation.

Footage of the Angle match earlier is shown. Matt Morgan is shown watching that footage backstage. Morgan says “what a shocker” that Hogan isn’t here tonight and says it’s just another one of Hogan’s mistakes. Morgan names off all of Hogan’s mistakes including Hogan not naming Morgan #1 Contender. Morgan says that all of this would have been easily avoided had he done the right thing.

Devon attempts to whip Joe into the corner but he reverses it and then comes flying in with a Running Back Elbow followed by a Leaping Enziguri! Joe lifts Devon up on the top rope for the Muscle Buster but Aces & Eights run out. Joe chases them off and then elbows Devon and lifts him up for the Muscle Buster! Wes gets back on the apron to distract the referee as Mr. Anderson runs in and punches Joe with a pair of brass knuckles! Devon covers Joe and retains the belt.

Winner & STILL TV Champ: Devon via pinfall

After the match Anderson hits Joe with the brass knucks again as Aces & Eights held him down.

AJ Styles is shown walking backstage.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

Main Event
“Cowboy” James Storm vs. “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles

This is AJ Styles’ first match on TV since December of last year and these two are both former members of Fortune and former World Heavyweight Champions. AJ is sporting a new, dark look. You may remember of the ring jackets AJ used to wear with the hood that he was known for, well now he’s wearing a leather jacket with the same type of hood. His tights are also all black as are his gloves. AJ stops before he gets in the ring and starts to walk off but Storm stops him and nails him with a right hand. Storm goes for a Suplex on the ramp but AJ blocks it and nails Storm with a big right hand. Storm answers with a kick and then he goes for a Powerbomb but AJ blocks it and then bounces off the ropes with a huge right hand.

AJ shoves Storm into the ropes and then leapfrogs Storm and quickly slides at Storm’s feet and trips him. AJ clotheslines Storm and then stalks him as we go to a break.

----COMMERCIAL BREAK----

They exchange right hands now and then AJ whips Storm into the ropes only to eat a Flying Forearm from Storm followed by an Atomic Drop! Storm clotheslines AJ and then whips him into the ropes and lifts AJ way up into the air with a backdrop! Storm lifts AJ up into the 8 Second Ride! Haven’t seen that one in awhile! 1…2…NO AJ kicks out! Storm tosses AJ into the corner and lights him up with a Knife Edge Chop and then he lifts AJ up to the top rope.

Bully Ray nails Kaz with the World Title and then DOC & Knux Double Chokeslam Daniels. D-Lo hit’s the Lo Down on Storm!

Bully Ray reminds us who he is and he says Aces & Eights are the men responsible for destroying all of the fans heroes. Ray says he is the man responsible for defeating and taking out Jeff Hardy. He says his brothers are the men responsible for taking out the 3 “pieces of trash” in the ring. Ray says they have no heroes left as a “we want Sting” chant starts. He says all of the fans heroes are just victims now and there is one man that you can blame, Hogan. Ray says Hogan is the reason why all of their heroes are just another victim as Ray looks over to Taz and smiles. Ray says next week live on Impact he is going to call Hogan out. He says he wants to look dead in Hogan’s eye so he can tell him that Hogan is the reason why that all of the heroes are nothing but victims…victims of Aces & Eights. Ray says when you ride with the Aces & Eights, you never walk alone.
