411’s TNA IMPACT Wrestling Report 6.13.13

June 13, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

Championship Roll Call:
TNA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: James Storm and Gunner


Reminder, I do not rate matches that are under three minutes long…

-We get highlights from last week’s show.

-Hulk Hogan makes his way to the ring to kick off the show. Hogan plays to the crowd a bit, and says things could have been worse last week. He had the hammer and was ready to take out Bully, but at the end of the day Bully has caused so much drama he told Brooke to stay home this week. Now tonight we will know all 12 competitors for the BFG Series. Samoa Joe, Hernandez and Jay Bradley. Two other guys are also set for the series, and they are the last two winners, Bobby Roode and Jeff Hardy. Since they have previously won the series, they get a free pass and do not have to qualify this year.

Jeff makes his way to the ring. Jeff is tired of Aces and 8s, and plans to win the BFG Series this year, and will win the world title. Bobby Roode then makes his way out to the ramp and says that he doesn’t need an introduction. Everyone knows that he is the longest reigning champion in the history of Impact Wrestling. He won the first ever BFG Series, and this year, he will do it again. Hogan says that next week is open fight night, and the fans can vote on who get the first call out between the two. Roode blasts the idea, and says he hopes they all vote for him, because next week he will walk out and call out Hardy. And when he does he will kick his ass. Jeff challenges him to do it now…

But the Aces and 8s make their way to the ring. Ray has the music cut and asks why everyone is so hostile? It doesn’t matter who wins the BFG Series, because the winner has to face the champion, which will be Bully Ray. He then asks why none of the Aces and 8s are in the series. Hogan says they get one spot, and they will have an Aces and 8s battle royal, and the winner gets the spot. Ray says no matter who makes it into the series, Aces and 8s will target them, and it is all Hogan’s fault. He sends Aces and 8s to attack Roode and Jeff, but they clear out Brisco and Bischoff. Roode then attacks Jeff, and bails.

-Kaz and Daniels make fun of Storm and Gunner. They then say that they are the best and they will win their tag match and make it into the BFG Series. Daniels says that either he or Kaz will win and will take the world title.

Bound For Glory Series Qualifier: James Storm and Gunner vs. Christopher Daniels and Kazarian

Storm and Daniels to begin, they lock up, to the corner and rights by Storm. Off the ropes, shoulder block by Storm and then a hip toss to Daniels. Boot, suplex follows and then the knee drop also connects for Storm. Tag to Gunner, double shoulder block on Daniels and a cover gets 2. Daniels tags in Kaz, gets caught in the sack of shit slam. Kaz tries to use his speed; trip by Daniels and then the big leg drop by Kaz connects. Daniels tags back in, lays in the ground and pound on Gunner. Tag back to Kaz, double teams on Gunner, and a cover by Kaz for 2.Gunner battles back through another double team, tag to Storm and a forearm to Kaz. Atomic drop, neck breaker follows and Storm gets a spear in the corner. Alabama jam on Kaz follows for 2 as Daniels makes the save. Gunner takes down Daniels, attacks Kaz and hits the high knee lift. Torture rack by Gunner, Daniels stops that and tosses him to the floor. Double teams on Storm, he fights back, back stabber on Daniels. Lung blower on Kaz! He looks for the superkick, but Daniels nails him with the world title and Kaz rolls him up for the victory!

-Velvet Sky has a present to give Mickie James later tonight.

-Crimson makes his way to the ring. He has new camouflage gear, playing off of his military background. He says he was undefeated for 470 days, but has been gone for 12 months. Those numbers have been consuming him. Almost 12 months to the day he lost his streak, but tonight, he gets a shot to make it into the BFG Series.

Bound For Glory Series Qualifier: Crimson vs. Joseph Park

Crimson attacks right away and beats down Park. He tackles him and lays in some rights, to the corner and Park hits and drops to the mat.

-Mickie James thinks it is sweet that Velvet has a gift for her, but also thinks she deserves it since she is the champion.

-Velvet Sky comes to the ring, and says he has had some friendship issues with Mickie since she lost the title to her. But tonight, she has the solution to their issues in this envelope; She calls out Mickie, who makes her way to the ring. Mickie says she is over whelmed with motion, and Velvet did not have to buy her anything. Sky pulls out the girt, which is clearance from Sky’s doctor, so she wants her rematch. Mickie says that you can get fake stuff like this on the Internet. Mickie then says if it is real, it says that it is for yesterday, but today Sky’s knee is still hurt. Mickie kicked her knee and beat her down, including applying a wild looking version of an Indian Deathlock while wearing a dress. Referees come to save Sky, while Mickie walks away with a crazed look on her face.

-Matt Morgan bitches about his BFG Qualifying match. He says Sting never beat him, so he shouldn’t have to qualify. Tonight, he plans to win and will then become the world champion.

Bound For Glory Series Qualifier: Kenny King vs. Rob Terry vs. Magnus vs. Matt Morgan

King, Terry and Magnus are already in the ring. Morgan is still wearing his stolen Hulk Hogan robe. Brother. This is one on one with tags here, and King and Morgan are in to start. Until King bails and tags in Terry. They do the big man staredown, talk trash, shove, shoulder blocks and everything you’ve seen when two big guys do the face to face. King gets involved and nails Terry, allowing Morgan to take control. Head butts and rights by Morgan, chokes him out in the corner while King lays in cheap shots. King tags in, some cheap shots, tag back to Morgan. Big boot by Morgan, King then tags himself back in and Morgan is not happy. Why is Terry still in the ring? Terry fights back, but then gets tossed into the air and Magnus tags himself in. He works over King, clothesline follows as well as shots to Terry and Morgan. Catches King, into the suplex and now Magnus to the top rope. BIG elbow drop connects and Morgan stops the pin. King in as well, this has broken down and we get the everyone hits their move deal, Magnus tosses Morgan and hits the Michinoku drive on King and scores the win!

-They hype Rampage Jackson’s debut from last week.

-Rampage is here tonight.

-Highlights of Sting losing at Slammiversary.


Sting makes his way to the ring to address the wrestling world following the loss to Bully Ray at Slammiversary. Due to the loss, he can no longer challenge for the world title. Sting says it is great to be back in Atlanta, GA. Last year at Slammiversary he was inducted into the TNA Hall of Fame, but in the last year, a lot of things have happened. Bully Ray, Aces and 8s and then this year he got his one shot against Bully Ray. He admits he failed, and can no longer wrestler for the TNA World Title again. At Slammiversary Bully set wave after wave after wave of Aces and 8s. Sting says he strength ran out and he lost. But there is something he can never forget. He was left to fend for himself, not one wrestler came from the back to help him. Not one. But that is ok, Bully, you and Aces and 8s are a fine tuned machine and always have their backs. “You are just like family. Family. Just like a family… family…oh just when I thought I was out they suck me back in. And now, I have to go back somewhere I thought I would never go. I have to create a family I can trust, my own, new family… or shall I say, mafia. My new Main Event Mafia.” So soon a new Main Event Mafia will rise, and Aces and 8s will fall.

-We see clips of Young’s show, where he meets ODB at a bar.
