UCI Brens Events Center in Irvine, California
Report by: Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
We get a nice video package highlighting the big matches heading into Bound For Glory. We also get a couple of interviews from some of the big players in some of the bigger matches from tonight. Zakk Wylde is ringside, he shreds on his guitar for a bit before breaking out into a riff-y version of the National Anthem.
Ultimate X Match for the X Division Championship
The Motor City Machine Guns are out first, they are there to replace the Pope D’Angelo Dinero who had to pull out of the event due to a family emergency. Suicide is out next, and this crowd is really hot right out of the gate. Homicide is out next, to a ton of love from the crowd. Daniels is the fifth man to enter the ring, and this crowd loves all of these X division guys. Amazing Red is the last man out to the ring, with Don West in tow.
This one is on as soon as the bell rings, and since it will be difficult to cover, please, as always, bear with me. Red and Daniels have a nice exchange where Red sends Daniels to the floor with a headscissors. Homicide follows out soon after with a dive through the ropes. Suicide hits Red with a Finlay roll before jumping outside on top of Homicide. Sabin, not to be outdone, dives through the middle of the ropes onto the men outside. Red tries but Daniels catches him, Red instead hits a top rope hurricarana to the outside that sends Daniels into all the other competitors. Red tries for the title, but the Guns catch him and use a giant swing/dropkick combo to take Red out. Homicide tries to the title while Daniels gets wrapped up with the Guns. Homicide gets almost the entire way to the title before Suicide does a springboard jump to get up to pull Homicide down to the mat.
The Guns continue to use their double team advantage, hitting Daniels with a doomsday missile dropkick. Red tries for the title, but he too falls victim to the Guns when they try for their sliced bread/powerbomb combo. Red is able to fight his way out with a hurricarana, and the Guns teamwork breaks down a little bit. Suicide dives into the ring out of nowhere and now everyone but the Guns are in the ring. Homicide again gets up to the rope structure, but Daniels pulls him down by the foot, straight into a Death Valley Driver. Red is next to go for the title, but he changes his mind when he sees Suicide coming closer. Red tries again for the title but Suicide connects with a springboard dropkick to take him down.
Daniels makes his way toward the title, as does Sabin. Both men kick it out while holding onto the ropes before falling onto their feet. Sabin connects with a DDT on Daniels. Shelley runs right into a lariat from Homicide. Homicide tries for the Gringo killer, but Daniels fights out. Red goes up for the title again but Suicide catches him. Red and Sabin hit some sort of top rope double team maneuver on Suicide, who gets launched into Daniels. Shelley comes off the top rope toward Homicide, but Homicide catches him in a big suplex. Red hits a standing shooting star on Homicide. Suicide and Sabin fight up to the top rope where Suicide hits a big time suplex that sets Daniels up to hit the BME.
Daniels, Suicide and Red climb up the metal structure out to the middle of the X where they tease a suplex on top of the structure. Daniels slips himself through the scaffolding on top of the title belt, but so does Suicide. Suicide pulls Daniels down from the ropes and it ends in a nasty fall. The Guns go for the title and Sabin is close when Red drops down from the metal scaffolding and grabs the title.
Winner and STILL X Division Champion: The Amazing Red
Lauren is backstage with the Beautiful People, she asks them about their rematch against the Kockout Tag Champs. Sky calls Lauren JB, and TBP make fun of Lauren for a little while. Sky says that everyone knows that TNA started with the Knockout Division, and that the Tag Championships were created for them. Sky says that tonight, they are going to take home what is rightfully theirs. Rayne says that last November, TBP had a lot of drama going on and they weren’t ready for their title shot, but tonight they’re going to accessorize by getting a couple of new belts. Von Erich grabs the mic before they leave and spouts out some stupid catch-phrase.
JB is backstage with the Sarita and Wilde, Wilde says that TBP can keep making their excuses, and they will keep making history. Sarita says something, and then I’m pretty sure she repeats the exact same thing in Spanish.
TNA Knockout Tag Team Championship Match
– Sarita & Taylor Wilde (c) vs. The Beautiful People
The Beautiful People are out first, followed by Wilde and Sarita. The funny thing is that TBP get a more positive reaction than the champs, by far. Lacey kisses the referee so that she’ll be allowed to stay at ringside, but Hebner is quick to come out. Von Erich kisses Hebner, but Hebner still throws her out, which causes TBP to throw a fit. The bell rings and Wilde tries to surprise Sky with a roll up. Sarita and Wilde utilize quick tags and some good double team work to isolate Sky from her corner, until Sky connects with a big lariat and makes the tag to Rayne. Sky goes for a monkey flip, but she gets thrown away and hit with a DDT instead and both women are down.
Both women make the tag at the same time and Wilde comes in and cleans house on Rayne. Sarita hits Sky with a nasty missile dropkick to the face. Wilde and Sarita hit their German suplex/superkick combo on Rayne and they get the pin.

Lauren is backstage with Kevin Nash and Eric Young. Young cuts her off and says he’s negotiated the best deal of his life. Young says he offered Hernandez a position in the World Elite. He says that both he and Nash consider him a black mark on the industry, and tonight they will eliminate him. She asks Nash about the $60,000 Young is paying Nash. Nash says that it’s win-win, because he walks out with his title, and richer, and Young wins because Hernandez gets beat, and Young walks away without a scratch.
