Revisiting TNA Impact Wrestling 2010, Lord Of T...
"Lord of the Ring," the Feb 18th, 2010 episode of TNA Impact Wrestling. Hulk Hogan presents Abyss with his WWE Hall of Fame ring, declaring that it will make Abyss stronger than Hulkamania and a god among men. This moment not only solidified Abyss as a top contender in the company, but also marked the beginning of a powerful alliance between Hogan and Abyss. This partnership saw the two wrestlers work together to dominate the TNA roster, with Abyss becoming a key player in Hogan's faction, Immortal. AJ Styles, under the mentorship of Ric Flair, beats up the new number one contender and 8 Card Stud winner, The Pope D'Angelo Dinero, and leaves him laying in the ring .This idea of AJ Styles being the next Ric Flair was not well received by the fans as AJ Styles was already a top guy in the company and the face of TNA Wrestling. Also in one of the most infamous moments in TNA Wrestling history, Samoa Joe was kidnapped by NINJAS. After the kidnapping, Samoa Joe was taken off TNA Impact TV, and when he was brought back, the storyline was never mentioned again. This was a major disappointment for fans as it was a bizarre and uninteresting storyline that came out of nowhere and had no real purpose or resolution. Also, The boys talk about DPW Live #1 that saw the main event of SB KENTo vs Lucky Ali for the DPW Worlds Championship. Plus, a review of Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.

WCW and ECW have both closed their doors leaving many talented wrestlers without a place to work. Jeff Jarrett, Jerry Jarrett & Bob Ryder were on a boat and had an idea for the creation of the NWA Total Nonstop Action. Many TV networks did not want to take a chance on pro wrestling, so the only logical thing was PPV. They would do things a bit different by offering weekly NWA TNA PPVs for $9.99. In the first ever NWA TNA PPV we get an NWA Champion crowned. There is a giant Gauntlet For The Gold match that saw Ron Killings vs Ken Shamrock facing off in a one on one match in the main event. Ken Shamrock becomes the very first NWA Champion in the Total Nonstop Action Era. They open the show with a showcase of the brand new X-Division.

The very same night that WCW was having Bret Hart vs Hulk Hogan, we got an all timer Stone Cold Steve Austin segment on WWF Monday Night RAW IS WAR! WWF Breakdown just happened and the main event saw Stone Cold vs Kane vs The Undertaker for the WWF Championship.The Undertaker and Kane were barred from pinning each other. If anyone had interfered on Austin’s behalf, Austin would have immediately been stripped of the title. Kane and The Undertaker both pinned Stone Cold Steve Austin so the WWF title was held up. On this episode of RAW Vince McMahon would hold an in-ring ceremony to award the WWF Championship to either Kane or Taker. However, Stone Cold Steve Austin ruined the entire thing as he drove a zamboni down to the ring, jumped over the police barricade and attacked Mr. McMahon. Austin ended up going to jail after this, but the night was not over. Mr. McMahon came back to the ring to award either Kane or Taker the WWF Championship. Because they did not protect him from Stone Cold, Vince said they had to fight at WWF Judgment Day 1998 with Stone Cold as special referee. This enraged Kane and Taker who proceeded to break the ankle of the owner of the World Wrestling Federation. D Generation-X is having issues in the group that leads to a fight where Billy Gunn leaves the arena. Owen Hart delivers an Owen Piledriver to Dan Severn in the same style he did it to Stone Cold.

A WWF TV show targeted at adults that aired late on Saturday Night sounded like a great idea, however, Shotgun Saturday Night was not it! Coming off of episode #1, the WWF was hyping up an unveiling of "Sunny's Sexy Home Video." The entire night is teased with rumors of who could be in the explicit tape with Sunny. When we get to finally see the film, it is revealed that it is Tickle Me Elmo's older brother Fondle Me Elmo! In what could only be described as bizarre, Sunny does indeed fondle Elmo. We also get another moment that misses the mark. Todd Pettengill signs a duet with The Honky Tonk Man. There are two problems with this, The Honky Tonk Man's mic doesn't work and he can't sing either. It might go down as one of the worst things in this era of pro wrestling. The Sisters of Love were arrested in New York for solicitation. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash are in WCW, but that doesn't stop the WWF from using the names Razor Ramon and Diesel. Speaking of The Bad Guy, the boys talk about the greatest wrestling theme songs of the late, great Scott Hall.
