Tremendous Tirades Throwback: TNA Sacrifice 2005  

TNA has altered their PPV schedule and switched the names of the PPV’s around. I am still going in chronological order, as it would lose the effect going the other way. The August PPV this year is Hard Justice.

We are live in Orlando Fl. as Shane Douglas and Jeremy Borash open up the pre-show. They put over the live crowd and run down the card. Jeff Hardy is being made to appear on the PPV by the rules committee, and if he no shows he will be fired.

We see JJ and Rhino arrive earlier today.

History video of JJ and Rhino vs. Raven and Sabu.

Cassidy Riley is there to see Raven and Sabu team up. He wants to see the pain close up.

Mike Tenay is in the ring with Larry Z. They say they have a huge announcement. It is for Bob Carter, their investor who they show and he gets TNA Chants. Tenay says this is also for the best locker room in wrestling today, and it is for the fans. They chant “SPIKE TV!” October the 1st, as part of Slammin’ Saturday Night TNA Heads to SPIKE TV. Great chants from the crowd here. Larry Z. is about to speak and here comes JJ. CUT HIS MUSIC! JJ says it makes his stomach turn. Tenay and Larry had nothing to do with the company. They cost TNA money and JJ should have been making the announcement. He is responsible for TNA’s success as well as the SPIKE TV deal. It was JJ’s dream and it is now realized and Tenay knows it. JJ says he knows what he is talking about, and his “sources” told him another “black Wednesday” is coming and they all want to come to TNA. He knows they want to replace him and the crowd agrees! He came out here for an answer from Larry Z. He wants the tag main event to have a stip. If he beats Raven, he demands his title shot. JJ yells and says if he wanted a speech he would have went backstage and listened to his old man! Larry says yes to his answer. Tenay and Rhino said they heard it. JJ says to shine his belt up, because it’s coming home. Larry says since TNA is all about being fair, JJ needs to shut up and if Raven pins JJ, he has to wait ONE YEAR for an NWA TITLE SHOT!

Super X Cup video package.

Tenay and West discuss the stakes going up for the main event. Don West has a NORMAL dress shirt on! That is odd.

Borash and West hype the card one last time.

Another well-done PPV opening video by TNA to start the PPV.


Simon has a problem! When Elix was a part of XXX, he was a star! But he was forced to be broken up with Daniels and while his partner went onto gold, Elix has been a lost soul. Elix is truly a Diamond in the rough and Simon will make him a start!

Simon yells at his team as Tenay and West discuss what happened on the pre-show. They show the footage.

Shane Douglas with The Naturals and Jimmy Hart. Hart says it is impossible to plan. He has seen some bloody battles, but it is all about the titles. The Naturals say it is about beating Team Canada. JJ is in and says things are going down and they could be fired. JJ says he will beat Raven and they will be safe. They blow off JJ because he hasn’t talked to them in months!

Lock up and Shocker with a single leg takedown and gets an odd move into a single leg crab, but Alex gets the ropes. Lock up again and Shocker takes him down with an arm drag.

Winner: Alex Shelley @ 9:05 via **¾ (A little of a let down, which I blame on Shocker for not being very fluid with Shelley tonight.)

In the back, Douglas with Abyss and Mitchell. He says he may have woken up Hoyt, but he doesn’t care. There have always been big men, but NONE compare to Abyss. Abyss was in the middle of a run to be the best until Hoyt got in the way. Hoyt wants to fight, and apparently he is so enthralled with his white trash fans, that he will but his bright career in trouble. Abyss will do things to him that will make Saddam Hussein cringe. The cheers of his fans will lead him to his doom, and he will realize that Abyss is TNA’s ONLY giant…muahahaha.

Tenay puts over the Bound for Glory PPV that is coming up in October. We get a special video package for it as well.

They say Jeff Hardy hasn’t arrived yet, and if he doesn’t show he is fired.

Daniels has the mic and it is time for the gospel for tonight. JJ has gone around talking about black Wednesday. Well, at first he scoffed at him…because no one can replace him. But then TNA went and brought in an outsider in Aries, one of the top Independent stars today. He may be Mr. Independent and Mr. ROH, but Daniels is Mr. TNA! Tonight may be Aries biggest shot ever, but it is just a tune up for Daniels.

They really played up that Daniels escaped JUST BARELY.

Douglas with AMW. They say that they want the titles back, but if they have to team with the Naturals to beat Team Canada, they will and then go for the titles. Storm is pissed and when he gets to the ring, he will be even more pissed. JJ is there to talk to them and says that they need to listen to him, because there will be changes. He think they are some of the cornerstones of TNA. He says they are on the “to be fired list.” They said people like Austin Aries will come and take their jobs. They tell JJ that they don’t trust anyone, not even their mothers. They say JJ is full of shit. JJ says they are talking to bug TAG TEAM names. He says that to remember black Wednesday…some were…”Dudz” if they know what he means.

Winners: Rhino and JJ @ 16:35 via *** (Great brawl, which is exactly what it was supposed to be.)

The 411: Once again a PPV that really had nothing bad, delivered good matches and some surprises. This PPV did not end until 10:54pm. From 7:30pm until then I was very much entertained, and without doubt I got my money’s worth. Five matches that are *** or over out of nine is a good deal to me anytime I get it. The other matches were not bad at all, not spectacular but they had their place and were at the very least fun or have a good storyline with them. Waltman pulled the rabbit out of the hat again with Lynn this month, the main event was good and Joe vs. AJ was just tremendous. Another good PPV from TNA.
Final Score:  8.0   [ Very Good ]  legend
