Tremendous Tirades Throwback: TNA Bound for Glory 2006  

Pre-PPV Show:

-Tenay and West welcome us to BOUND FOR GLORY and the PPV pre-show.

-JB is outside, and Samoa Joe is sitting in the parking lot in a chair waiting for Angle, and not talking.

-Back to Hemme in the arena. Timing was off and she begins to hype the PPV.

-Video package time, LAX vs. AJ/Daniels.

-Tenay and West are back, as West has headset problems to hype the show. The arena looks good, they have three big screens and one major ramp way. They hype the show again, as West starts to go into sell mode and runs down the card.

-Bobby Roode is out. He discusses his search for a manager, and he has a swank robe on as always. He calls himself “Robert Roode.” Wait, is he joining the York Foundation? He doesn’t need Sherri to look good, Parker to help him win or Heenan to talk for him. He needs someone to take care of him and his finances, as well as main events and title shots. When you are a main eventer and a title-holder, you get the money. Together with his new CEO, they will make a lot of money. His new CEO for Robert Roode INC is…Miss Brooks. Traci is going the Miss Hancock route, with glasses and the skirt. Roode has some new tights, with a “$” symbol on them.

-Roode faces Hoyt in the pre-match. Roode wins at 4:08 with “The Payoff,” which is the lame roll of the dice finisher, via pin. Way to competitive a match, Roode should have dominated him. *

-Cornette and security are in the parking lot trying to get Joe to come inside.

-Back in the arena and Roode and Brooks humiliate Hoyt. Ron Killings is out and clears them from the ring. Killings on the mic. He sings his song for the fans, Hoyt dances and he is so white.

-Hemme is in the back to hype the 8-Mile street fight. Um…a midget keeps running in front of her, back and forth. She stops him and he says he is late. He is there for The Kevin Nash, Bound for Glory, X-Division, Open Gauntlet Battle Royal. Russo-Nomics.

-Video package time, Rhino vs. Cage.

-West and Tenay are back and hype the card once again.

-Video package time, Sting vs. JJ.

-Don west is ringside and is in FULL hard sell mode! SELL THOSE GEM 10 MINT CONDITION JORDAN ROOKIES BABY~!

-Outside we cut to Joe being held back by about 10-guys and Angle being held back as well! They call each other on and we fade…

-We get the Fozzy video to hype the show as the pre-show ends.


Cool video package as always to begin the show, playing off the history of Detroit’s auto industry, relating it to TNA and their dreams. Just a tremendous piece of video work.

Tons of pyro to kick off the show as Tenay and West welcome us. The crowd is hot.

The 411: First of all the show-looked great. It had a different look from the Impact zone and the production was good. Some are complaining that it wasn't "WWE" good, but it doesn't have to be. It looked good without the sanitized appearance; it looked like a wrestling show. I don't know about you but I like my "fightin" shows to look like FIGHTIN shows! We had Eight-PPV matches, four of them cracked *** very easily, and one went over ****. The rest of the matches were mostly solid, and the only match that was "bad" I would say was the Loser gets Fired match. The title matches all delivered in some way, and we got THREE title changes on the show. Most of the booking was good on the show, the crowd stayed hot all night and in the end it came off as a big show. You have a group of the normal haters saying the show blew, while you have another group saying it is the best PPV in TNA history. In the end I will go with a 8.1 out of 10 for the show, making it one of the better PPV's, if not the best of 2006.
Final Score:  8.1   [ Very Good ]  legend
