The Main Events

impact wrestling reactionMVP and The Wolves vs. Austin Aries, Bobby Roode and Robbie E. TNA tries to do their best impersonation of a six man tag team match. MVP gets in the ring and hits a few right hands onto E. Robbie gets caught with a flapjack and MVP hits a big boot to the outside. Robbie E has been eliminated and in comes Roode. He chops down the captain with lefts and rights until MVP tags in Edwards. The Wolves hit a nice double team move and get a two count onto Roode. Roode tags in Aries who knocks down everyone on the apron. Roode and Aries try a double team and Edwards hits a big kick to Roode. Aries hits a running dropkick and a Brainbuster. Richards and MVP are left with Aries and Roode. After MVP get eliminated, Roode catapults himself onto Richards. Richards fights back and hits a beautiful dropkick and it looked like Roode DDT'd Aries. Richards heads to the top and Roode avoids contact. The end of the match comes when Aries is disqualified by using a steel chair onto Richards… The match is scheduled to continue later in the night.

The match continues with Bobby Roode attacking Davey Richards from the very beginning. Richards finally fires back and sends Roode to the outside. Richards hits a beautiful suicide dive onto Roode. Richards connects with a missle dropkick and a two count. Roode fights out of the half crab and makes Richards tap out to pick up the man advantage at Lethal Lockdown.

Throughout the night, we were caught in drama and uncertainty. TNA succeeded in keeping my interest throughout the entire show. This was a solid match at the beginning and then finished with Richards and Roode doing just enough to give the final spotlight onto the captain of Team Dixie.

Score: 7.5/10

-Samoa Joe comes out and calls out Magnus. Magnus talks about the Main Event Mafia and says he became champion after they split. He said Joe cannot stand it that he is champion. Joe says Magnus is not going to be able to walk out of TNA and he is taking his championship. Joe headbutts Magnus and locks in the Coquina Clutch. Magnus taps out and this ends Impact.

I am not sure this is the best match for Magnus right now. Why would TNA want Magnus to continue to look as weak as possible, especially against a guy like Samoa Joe? I am not buying into this match, even though it could be a good "wrestling match." They could have done so much more for the main event. I just did not like how it feels rushed and how Magnus has still not gotten a clean win over ANYBODY.

Score: 5/10

Impact Wrestling Score: 6.5/10
