Tremendous Tirades Throwback: TNA Against All Odds 2006  

PPV Pre-Show

Borash welcomes us and says they had to turn away hundreds of fans again. He runs down the card and hypes the matches.

Cage vs. JJ hype video is shown, same from Impact, very good.

Pre PPV-Match #1 is A1 w/Team Canada and D’Amore vs. Ron Killings. The ref tosses all of Team Canada to even things up. Killings wins in about 3-minutes. Killings looked great, match was real good except for one spot near the end where A1 got lost on a reversal.

Abyss vs. Rhino hype video is shown. Another good video package.

Mitchell is here with an authentic “Fiji Mermaid.” They too were blood thirsty war machines, until they went somewhere where they weren’t the top of the food chain.


Do you realize that there is no rule book, the only stipulation is someone must get punned somewhere.


This is like from a fish bowl to a shark tank for you, Abyss can split your skull open. He can drive a steel door until you vomit blood. I have never been one to pray, but I do tonight and I pray for Abyss to take you to the top of the building so he can drop you 60-feet straight to hell!


Pre PPV-Match #2 is Lance Hoyt, Cassidy Riley and Sharky vs. Elix Skipper, David Young and Shannon Moore. Pretty good match. Elix and Young kept refusing to tag Moore for a while, and then would blind tag in and that annoyed Moore. Hoyt got a hot tag, cleaned house, but Elix and Young got a double STO on Hoyt, then broke up the pin and tossed them. Moore eventually left and Hoyt got a swank chokeslam on Elix for the win @ 5:55.

AJ vs. Daniels vs. Joe video package. This is a new one, and it is another really good one.

Tenay and West run down the card and hype the show.

Borash is with Larry Z and Dave Hebner. Larry says they had a lot of meetings, and they are to ensure a level playing field. Larry is serious about making sure the best man wins.

Don West is here to do the hard sell.

To close out the pre-show we get a sweet video hyping all of the feuds and matches.

Earlier today we see Cage arriving.

Also, we see D’Amore and Eric Young waiting for JJ, and D’Amore promising Sting Is not around. JJ arrives in a Hummer. D’Amore says the tape on Jackie is golden and now he has to handle Cage. Young says Sting is not gone, JJ disagrees and makes his say Sting is gone.
