TNA House Show Results 01.24.13 – Nottingham, England
Credit: Adrian Cook & PWInsider
Attendance was small, less than 1900 (ask security, they usually have the numbers!) this is substantially less than last year’s event and probably why Nottingham isn’t part of the 2014 tour. WWE usually attracts 5,000 to the same venue.
Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez beat Bad Influence. A nice match with a few comedy spots.
Rockstar Spud and Marty Scurll fought in a match billed as a British Bootcamp rematch. I believe Spud won but Scurrll apparently was dominating the fight.
The Blossom Twins beat Gail Kim and Tara after being beaten up on all match thanks to a roll up. The heels laid into the twins only to be saved by referee, Velvet Sky. Jeremy Borash asked the crowd if they wanted to see them on the roster full time which brought a large pop and hinted at a season 2!
RVD beat Zema Ion. Five star frog splash straight over Earl Hebner, who was in front of RVD while he was on the ropes. Pretty cool finish.
Bobby Roode, Austin Aries and James Storm was turned into a tag match when Storm brought Magnus in as a partner. Storm and Magnus won after a spot where Roode went to spit beer in storms face but storm ducked. Roode was cleared from the ring and Aries received a superkick. Storm went into the crowd while the cage was brought out.
Jeremy Borash desperately filled time for fifteen minutes until they were set up for the main event.
Sting and Kurt Angle beat Devon and DOC Devon and DOC came out followed by Kurt Angle and Sting. Angle was beat up outside by Mike Knox leading to a 2 vs. 1 situation. Angle eventually made it in and as he was dominating a masked aces and eights member came out and attacked Kurt and Sting with a hammer. Angle kicked out of a pin and a table was brought in to the ring. Bully Ray ran out to make the save a wassup headbutt was nailed on Devon and DCOC was double chokeslammed through the table for the three count.
Bully went on to cut a promo and give a kid from the audience a piece of the table, and that pretty much brought the show to a close. Bully received by far the biggest pop. It feels wrong to see him as a face.
