    Giving their thoughts and predictions on what to expect from the PPV are members of the site @JoeySplashwater, @TimWelcomed and @TomBlargh.

    Jessie Godderz vs. Robbie E

    Joey:

    I’m researching on TNA to see what’s happening with these matches. Apparently Robbie E is a good guy. In most companies, this would be a noteworthy bad decision but in TNA, it’s not even top 10. Jessie vs. Bram at Bound For Glory live on UStream, brothers.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Jessie Godderz wins.

    Tim:

    I’ve been watching TNA for a long time and can tell you this match was years in the making. Former tag team partners colliding to decide who is better. Simple storytelling done right. Big match feel confirmed.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Robbie E. wins.

    Tom:

    WORLDS COLLIDE! ONLY ONE CAN SURVIVE! GF F’N W VS. TNA IMPACT WRESTLING! THIS IS AS REAL AS IT GETS, BABY! A CARD OF DREAM MATCHES!

    Re: this match – is TNA still doing their silly Spin Cycle show? That was a good laugh. I’m not sure what’s going on with this but Robbie E probably deserves better.

    Interest Level: 5/10
    Prediction: Robbie E wins.

    Austin Aries vs. Davey Richards

    Joey:

    Is this a shot at ROH on Destination America? WHO IS MORE DISGRUNTLED?!

    Interest Level: 4/10
    Prediction: Davey Richards wins because Austin Aries is always most disgruntled!

    Tim:

    As an avid TNA fan this is the pentacle of why TNA has such a loyal fan base. Where else on TV can you see great wrestlers get the time to go out and do what they love? TNA delivers dream matches and this is just one of many on this night. Richards has a kick-based offense. Aries has a kick-based offense. The real people getting their kicks here will be us the fans. I don’t believe Aries will be leaving TNA after this. He’s one of their smarter wrestlers and knows loyalty will pay off. I do see Richards getting the win here to swerve the fans. It’ll only make it more exciting!

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Richards wins.

    Tom:

    What’s the state of Davey’s hair these days? Is he still dying it? What about the bodypaint thing with the scratches, is that still going on?

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Austin to Aries wins and then cuts a searing hot shoot promo on Dixie Carter and “Double J” Jeffrey Jarrett.

    Bram vs. Matt Morgan

    Joey:

    ATTENTION: MATT MORGAN HAS A MASSIVE TATTOO OF A DEMON CLOWN ON HIS BACK NOW. GET READY!!!!

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Bram wins.

    Tim:

    Now Matt Morgan. There’s someone who saw the writing on the wall and came back. Now is the time to jump on the TNA wagon. The Blueprint is here to print his boot on Bram’s ass. #MattMorgan4TNAChamp

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Matt Morgan wins.

    Tom:

    HOLY SHIT IMAGINE WATCHING THIS

    Interest Level: JESUS CHRIST/10
    Prediction: UN-FUCKING-REAL

    The Dollhouse (Taryn Terrell, Jade and Marti Bell) vs. Awesome Kong and Brooke

    Joey:

    Fun fact: Billy Corgan cut a deal for The Dollhouse to use some old Hole song. There’s a chance Courtney Love is among the highest paid talents by TNA!

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Awesome Kong and Brooke Not Hogan wins.

    Tim:

    TNA has been awesome in giving women the time to wrestle and develop their characters. Ratings show The Dollhouse are draws if you break down the quarter-hour and divide the shares. A lot of dirtsheets don’t know to do that. Awesome Kong IS TNA and Brooke is one of the best TNA Women’s champions of all time. The Future vs The Present. One of the more brilliant match-ups on the card

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: The Dollhouse wins.

    Tom:

    #WrestlingMatters, baby.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: The Dollhouse wins.

    Lashley and Mr. Anderson vs. Ethan Carter III and Tyrus

    Joey:

    Tyrus is the greatest commentator – trust me. TNA is looking for a commentator to replace Taz. These geeks are missing out on the perfect move. Imagine Tyrus shutting down Josh Mathews. Poor Lashley. He’s doing great in MMA and has improved greatly at wrestling but no one really knows or cares.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Someone pins Tyrus.

    Tim:

    I can’t breathe. THIS IS SO EXCITING. The powerhouse and MMA expert Bobby Lashley and the best talker in the game Mr. Anderson could be one of the most incredible teams ever put together. Ethan Carter is the future of this sport and his main man Tyrus is no laughing matter. This should be a spectacle.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Lashley and Anderson win.

    Tom:

    Tyrus is alright, man. I mean, not really in terms of being a fun wrestler to watch but he seems very likeable and to not really give a fuck.

    Interest Level: 1/10
    Prediction: EC3 and Tyrus win.

    James Storm vs. Magnus in a Non-Sanctioned Match

    Joey:

    I don’t know why but I have a feeling this is going to be a good match and the best of the night. Both men have talent and despite the wacky storyline of Storm throwing Mickie James in the train tracks, I’ve been impressed by the emotion and acting chops show by both guys in the segments I’ve seen. I’m hopeful of a good match.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Magnus wins. (Global Force 1, Dixie 0)

    Tim:

    First off, let me tell these two traitors something. WWE didn’t see your talent. TNA took you under their wing and MADE you. You wouldn’t be worth a penny without Mrs. Dixie Carter and the caring people of Impact Wrestling and now you’ve gotten too big for your britches and are leaving? Haha. See you never because I don’t visit obscurity, buds. The six sides doesn’t need you. Never has and never will. At least we know Bobby Roode is the true winner of Beer Money. I won’t be watching this one but it says a lot that TNA will be letting them have their last match on a big stage. James Storm was TNAnonymous all along, I guess.

    Interest Level: 0/10
    Prediction: Double KO

    Tom:

    Non-sanctioned?!? Oh no! Hopefully some really dumb stuff happens, I want some low-budget special effects.

    Interest Level: 2/10
    Prediction: Brutus “The Barber” Magnus wins.

    Jeff Jarrett vs. Matt Hardy vs. Eric Young vs. Drew Galloway vs. Bobby Roode in a King of the Mountain Ladder Match

    Joey:

    What the hell are they going to place on the ladder? None of these guys are champions. Ron and Don Harris will put the TNA production staff paychecks above the ladder and get the surprise win.

    Non-sarcastic side note: I’m VERY excited to see how Drew Galloway does in his first PPV main event.

    Interest Level: 7/10
    Prediction: Jeff Jarrett wins. (Global Force 2, Dixie 0)

    Tim:

    The most genius match in the history of the sport returns. This match will be taken seriously because it’s so dangerous and deep. It takes some serious strategy to come out of this one the winner. It’s not just muscles, it’s also mental ability. Buckle up, not even Meltzer will be able to deny this one the big five stars.

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: Jeff Jarrett wins.

    Tom:

    FUCK YES. I love King of the Mountain matches, they make no sense. The penalty box, Jesus Christ. There should be a TNA show that’s just a card of King of the Mountain matches. I love ’em!

    Interest Level: 10/10
    Prediction: “Big” Jeffrey Jarrett takes it home.
