> Watch Impact Wrestling: Hard to Kill in http://taima.tv/r/wooo and http://taima.tv/r/woooalt starting with the pre-show at 7:30pm EST / 12:30am GMT with the PPV itself at 8pm EST / 1am GMT

After a nuclear explosion three things will seem to still exist. Cockroaches, Twinkies and Impact Wrestling. Because every time TNA circles the drain they manage to keep on staying alive at the very last minute. Ownership troubles, getting cancelled from various TV stations, the list goes on. And this would be a great time to promote LOLTNA History if Taimapedia ever came back. Okay, so barely anyone watches them nowadays, but they do have a thing for putting on good PPV events over the last few years.

> IMPACT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: Sami Callihan (c) vs. Tessa Blanchard
> IMPACT KNOCKOUTS CHAMPIONSHIP: Taya Valkyrie (c) vs. Jordynne Grace vs. ODB
> IMPACT X-DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: Ace Austin (c) vs. Trey
> IMPACT WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The North (c) vs. Willie Mack and Rich Swann
> Michael Elgin vs. Eddie Edwards - Edwards' Call Your Shot Trophy is on the line.
> Rob Van Dam vs. Brian Cage
> Moose vs. Rhino
> Madman Fulton vs. Ken Shamrock

Come and watch Hard to Kill tonight and see if Impact will still give Tessa Blanchard the strap following recent comments coming to light: https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2020/01/tessa-blanchard-did-not-appear-at-impact-wrestling-hard-to-664731/

This may or may not help them make their decision.

https://www.wrestlinginc.com/news/2020/01/tessa-blanchard-removed-from-heavy-metal-wrestling-event-664744/

>Heavy Metal Wrestling Cease and Destroy takes place on January 24 in San Antonio and Tessa Blanchard was scheduled to face Rok-C at the event. The promotion informed fans today she's been pulled from the show.

>"Tessa Blanchard has been removed from our scheduled event on January 24th, 2020. We take these allegations levied against her very seriously. An updated card will be released shortly. For refund information, please contact Walt@HeavyMetalWresting.com"

>This was due to a story that came to light on social media yesterday about Blanchard and another wrestler during their time in Japan.

>Blanchard initially tweeted out, "Hey women, try supporting one another. Cool things happen."

>This led to NWA World Women's Champion Allysin Kay bringing up the story in question, "Remember when you spat in a black woman's face and called her the N-word in Japan? Was that you "supporting women"? The AUDACITY of this tweet."

>Kay said she was given permission by the individual, Puerto Rican wrestler Black Rose, to make it public. Blanchard said it was "not true."

>"The reason I've never said anything until now is because it wasn't my story to tell," Kay wrote. "I made it clear to La Rosa that I had her back, and today was the day she gave me permission. You can't force someone to come forward, but you can be there for them. THAT is 'supporting women.'"

>The floodgates were opened after this as other wrestlers including: Chelsea Green, Isla Dawn, Rebel, Shanna, Big Swole, and others shared some of their experiences involving Blanchard.

>Blanchard also didn't speak at yesterday's Media Day for Impact Hard to Kill, despite being initially advertised.

I think the best idea is to scrap the tag titles match since Rich Swann appears to be injured and instead have an interview with Tessa addressing everything. You can't not say something, because it will only get worse. Tessa winning the title is likely unless they have Eddie cash in and win. Eddie and Sami have a history so it fits.

I don't know too much about Heavy Metal other than that a woookie works for them. They bill themselves as "counter culture pro wrestling" and they have more of a punk rock, "alt" image so inclusiveness and crowd safety is a big part of the community.

Without A Cause Wrestling, another punk themed wrestling promotion in WA recently booked Michael Elgin... and then un-booked him when their crowd got pissed. And then they replaced him with Eddie Edwards.

Tessa was set to headline the next Warrior Wrestling event in a War of Attrition match which featured not just Taya and Madison Rayne but also Kylie Rae and Britt Baker. On top of that, Amazing Red had *just* accepted her challenge that she laid out at last weekend's ICW No Holds Barred show. Warrior Wrestling brought Elgin in, in December. And ICW uses Shlak so I can't see them dropping her from already-advertised upcoming shows.

Tessa was poised to go on a Queen of the Indies-level tour as the presumable Impact world champ, leading all the way to the summer when she would have probably gotten huge offers from both WWE and AEW. There's probably going to be a huge line in the sand now between what types of indies stick by the growing list of problematic Impact performers (Tessa, Elgin, Callihan, Moose, even Rich Swann still gets shit). I would not be surprised to see Joey Ryan's Bar Wrestling stand by her, as well as Sami's Pro Wrestling Revolver. Ethan Page dropped Teddy Hart when he got heat for booking him, but he also attempted to use Moose and no one cared, so who knows if A1 would use Tessa.

I bet there's a lot of question marks in place based on how she handles the scrutiny in the next 24 hours (she *should* acknowledge what's been said about her with an actual apology) and how Impact decides to book the finish now.

>>6346220
I've seen other fan fantasy booking that says Sami should beat Tessa... only to have Eddie cash in on Sami. That way, they can 1.) get the belt off of Tessa and Sami who both skeletons in their closet 2.) try again later with "the first female to win a men's world title" angle later without real life controversy marring 3.) attempt to send the fans home happy with a non-controversial babyface being world champ.

It's honestly not terrible.

Would rather Tessa get it than drop it to Elgin. Doesn't derail a year's worth of booking if this blows over like the Elgin thing, but also doesn't have her parade around with the belt if it doesn't.

Pretty much everyone in the wrestling business and the vast majority of the fans know there is absolutely nothing wrong with Shlak. It's only a select few extremely online types that keep spreading all these allegations about him, but the allegations themselves don't hold up under the slightest degree of scrutiny.

And even then a lot of the "problematic Impact performers" aren't in the same situation as Tessa. Moose and Sami are simply "he said-she said" matters that have never been verified. Again, it's just a bunch of extremely online types who go on about this stuff when literally everyone else has moved on.

It was one photo with the guys, it wasn't at an RAC show, and there wasn't really any indicator at the time that the guys were nazis. This sort of thing happened all the time in hardcore/shock-rock scenes at the time and it still happens pretty often today in the black metal scene (Case in point, people trying to cancel Deathspell Omega for literally the same reasons). Again, the whole thing keeps coming back to some rando who got supremely ass-blasted over Call the Paramedics but knew that literally no well-adjusted person would give two shits about a hardcore band with shocking lyrics.

I sat down and watched one of the Impact shows on Twitch for the first time since 2012, and wasn't really impressed especially with Melissa Santos doing bumper segments in between matches in her bedroom. Are the PPVs better than this or should I skip it? It baffles me how you go from being one of the main characters in Lucha Underground to sitting in your house with a cell phone microphone bumping the show.

I remember /wooo/ absolutely roasting him as Eddie "Eddie Edwards" Edwards (ie a wrestler with zero character) and constantly shitting on him for the doing the spot in ROH with Davey Richards where Davey superplexs him from the top rope, but Eddie no sells and suplexes Davey over the top rope and down to the floor, going with him

Impact took Eddie and gave him an actual personality in a highly unexpected way by taking a technical grappler and turning him into an ECW-esque character

Impact saved Eddie from what /wooo/ used to deride as the "Clone Wars" era of ROH where they pushed Eddie, Davey and Roderick Strong as their 3 top guys.

More than likely it was at a show where RAC guys happened to be, there's a difference. That sort of thing happens all the time in more "outlaw" hardcore/extreme venues. Hell, I remember even seeing a bunch of tatted-up skinheads hanging out at Mayhemfest in 2012.

Also, the Deathspell Omega allegations don't hold up. It's painfully obvious to anyone who reads the lyrics that their latest album is distinctively anticurtain jerker, and in their Bardo Methodology interview the band reaffirmed that they're primarily disciples of french anticurtain jerker Georges Bataille. Mikko Aspa seems to be the blunt of the allegations but he's repeatedly stated in interviews for years now that he consciously and consistently rejects mass politics and the content of Clandestine Blaze is designed primarily to be provocative and incendiary rather than sincerely ideological.

nb for off-topic, it's absurd that this is still being litigated since no one actually in the business takes these allegations seriously

Are you an ignorant moron, or a Nazi apologist? Seriously, choose one, you can't be anything else. Aspa is a known Nazi, supports and organizes most of Nazi shit on Finland, is a member of multiple NSBM bands, has a record label where he and his openly, self-identified Nazi buddies put out "white power electronics" and albums like "Rape Africa" and "jolly african-american Torture Chamber".

I know you're just looking to get under people's skin and it's you're gimmick coming from a/s/p and other places like that, but if you're going to come in these threads and make a big fuss, at least know what promotion you're talking about.

TNA Wrestling has been out of business since 2017
Impact Wrestling carries their title lineage, but is no longer TNA

Referring to Impact as TNA would be like calling WCW in 1999 NWA

The reason the promotion has fans is because it's one of the few products that has logical booking and actual storylines in 2020. Literally everyone on their roster matters and has some spot, which is how a promotion should always operate. If you have watched Impact and don't like it, then no one is forcing you to watch it. Only a moron would continue to watch something they hate or even spend hours online obsessing about it.

I guess whatever I say to you doesn't matter and you're going to keep working your gimmick for a few cheap laughs. I get it, everyone was a teenager once.
Kind of sad and borderline psychotic to focus all your attention on something you hate and as you just stated, don't even watch.
I suggest getting some help, not even in a joking way, because that's very unhealthy and leads to a person being so negative, they spiral into depression and have a jaded view of the world.
If you don't watch it, you have no opinion on the product and any post you make from here on just makes reaffirms everything I said above is true and you genuinely need help with your depression.

Yes but im saying of course njpw couldnt stay on the network. They literally air their competition with AAA and highlight noah guys on impact. The only way it would have worked is if njpw worked with impact. Its why they offered them. Njpw said no and from what kevin kelly said they are all good and the only ppl pissed off are marks on the internet.

Mikko Aspa isn't actually involved in any of those projects. BU isn't even nazi-related at all and ZSS and DK are only signed to his label alongside a wide and diverse variety of extreme acts. Peste Noire isn't even involved with Aspa's label, they're doing their own thing in Ukraine which actually *is* Nazi-related. You're grasping at straws here.

Just admit to being a Nazi already. Yeah it's just a total coincidence that all the Nazi artists flock around Aspa. He's a good boy who just doesn't know any better than to continue working with them for years on end. Just like Shlak never noticed his friend he was heiling with has SS tattoos and wears a skinhead shirt. All just coincidence, they're all good boys.

Ace austin is a magician pervert and trying to sleep with treys mom. Eddie edwards is a psycho gimmick. Elgin and him are having their third match this ppv. Uhhhh generally its a cozy show with actul pay offs to feuds and stories. Still has its issues. NWA is another really good weekly show

woah, this PPV sure flew by
i had low expectations because most of the matches didn't seem all that interesting to me, seemed like the weakest PPV since Callis took over, but at the end of the day everything but the horrendous Cage sendoff was entertaining, i definitely recommend it to everyone, even if you don't care about the controversy behind the main event

so yeah, without further undo, here's a few thoughts:

>Unrelated post not about the matches
hey, did you know that the ground floor is basically sold out? did you know that there is even a decent amount of people in the upper decks? because if i wasnt told to i would have not fucking noticed it since Impact is goddamn awful at micing and lighting up their crowds
seriously, for a company that gets mocked so much for being a bingo hall you'd think they would put more care in showing off the crowds they're drawing
it's not something that affects the quality of the show or anything but really? how come no one backstage works on this?

alos, people say fuck a lot tonight

>Madman Fulton vs. Ken Shamrock
match that surprised me for many reasons, first of all because it was good and i expected it to be awful, secondly because i wasn't aware that Madman Fulton would be able to put on this kind of grapply performance and on top of it i didn't expect they'd have Shamrock win
would be a good occasion to complain about muh build new starts but Shamrock already put over Moose and Ryan and they made sure Fulton looked sympathetic in defeat by having him fight through an injury, which makes me think they might be teasing a face turn, so yeah i'll close an eye for this one
not a bad way to start

>IMPACT X-DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP: Ace Austin (c) vs. Trey
not a fun of flippy shit in general, don't find it bad, just unintresting, but i love how creative Ace Austin can get with his moveset and Trey compliments him very well in this match, good pacing and good coordination all around
seems like this feud will continue, looking forward their next bouts
other than that i also appreciate how the chemistry between Josh and Don shines the most whenever Ace is around, really adds to the experience

>IMPACT KNOCKOUTS CHAMPIONSHIP: Taya Valkyrie (c) vs. Jordynne Grace vs. ODB
this match deserves a good rating based alone on what Johnny Bravo is wearing at rinside
very fun match, other two ko's did good, no particular complaints, but you can tell that Jordynne carried it on its back, still, good choice having Taya retain
and now we wait for then inevitable Jordynne vs ODB feud

>Rob Van Dam vs. Brian Cage
the feud leading to this match was the weakest in this whole PPV imo, RVD accusing Cage of all people of stealing his moves? really? also whoever decided to change RVDs theme needs to be killed and fired in that order
this shit sucked, why have FUCKING CAGE, of all people, look like a bitch against boomer RVD? match should have been 3 minutes of Cage bumping RVD on his neck and nothing else
not only that, but why have another match against Daga? who in their right mind thought this was a good idea? WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND THOUGHT THAT RVD SHOULD HAVE WON?

>Michael Elgin vs. Eddie Edwards - Edwards' Call Your Shot Trophy is on the line.
i'm still of the idea that having this match happen a week before the show was a bad idea, even if the match itself was great, but maybe thats just me
anyways, this is a personal early MOTY contender with Jericho vs Tana, can't stress how enough fucking amazing these two are in the ring, especially Edwards, who i think might be one of the most underlooked talents in the industry
maybe i would have had Elgin win but then again i don't know what the plans are in the future so who am i to judge?

>Moose vs. Rhino
decent hardcore match, not too violent or groundbreaking, but it was probably the best kind of match these two could have had together, Moose of course wins, but i wish it was a cleaner finish, no need to have ded refs screwing over people here, make Moose look strong
to point out: crowd was HOT for every second of it, i have no clue how Riho manages to stay so consistently over but props to him because he's definitely doing something right

>IMPACT WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP: The North (c) vs. Willie Mack and Rich Swann
ehhhh, not much to the match itself, it went just as most of these handicap matches go, with the guy who is alone getting massacred most of the match with occasional spurs where he has the upper hands, then back to being massacred again, it really picks up in the second half tho
i was expecting some sort of swerve by Swann but nope, wonder what's next for him and Mack

right now it's 4:20 where i live

>IMPACT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP: Sami Callihan (c) vs. Tessa Blanchard
this match did everything right. everything.
it had fast, well paced action, it had callbacks to previous stuff from their other 2 matches, it had great body language and facial expressions, it had a crowd going crazy for it and both wrestlers played the parts they were assigned masterfully. i knew this match was gonna be great but i was genuinely blown away
the year is still young and everything could happen but so far this is my match of the year and it will take a lot of effort and long term booking to change that

Feel like a lot of people are shitting on the show for no reason, mostly because those people didn't follow the product at all and just wanted to get some jokes about Impact.
Was a good show, told the stories it needed to tell and left everything worth following up on for weekly TV.
Main event was good but not the best match they've had (the rematch after Slammiversary was way better)
It was a hard situation for the company to be in with what happened, which still was very bizarre timing, but they did what they planned for months
Tessa will need to address everything soon, because the longer she waits, the worse it gets

Maybe when it comes to impact. Shit, if you want to compare it based on popularity, even Saki Akai being a 5 time comedy intergender champion got bigger audience.

>An indie wrestler won an indie title and some people om Twitter talked about it
yes, more people that know Tessa Blanchard that Saki Akai will ever get, way to prove my point

it's not any less absurd than having small guys win against bigger guys, the logic of people who are against that kind of thing happening is basically the same and i can promise you the industry didn't die a death because Rey Mysterio started winning matches

No. I've seen MMA. Mysterio is still a guy. Women are not naturally as strong as men. You aren't going to see WNBA teams beat NBA teams. Ronda Rousey could not beat Conor McGregor
>there was barely any buzz around it compared to last year

Christ. Great show aside from the injuries. No it wasn't like [insert your favorite promotion], but do you really want all promotions to be the same? That would be boring, so constantly comparing every promotion to other promotions is pointless and played out. Real sick of this console war tier shit flinging.

I like that DDT is both a bigger company with a bigger presence and more relevance than LOLTNA but also a just a comedy japanese indie with no TV so you can't blame them for not outdrawing LOLTNA. And LOLTNA for only outdrawing DDT when they have American TV!

The fact TNA doesn't do more is an indictment for them. AEW already has accomplished more than they ever did.

And sorry intergender wrestling is beyond dumb. Show a woman getting beaten up like Austin and Triple H did to Lita and you'll never recover in today's climate

ok...? what does aew have to do with tna's ppv last night? i didn't realize there was a limit to how many wrestling shows were allowed to be on tv. once we've all come to an agreement on how many shows there should be, can you let me know how that will be good for the wrestlers to have *less* non-wwe job options?

Why are we comparing ddt and impact lol? Tessa honestly changed my mind on intergender because they book her matches in a way thay make me feel for her comeback. I dont think everyone could do what she does. She offers something unoque and entertaining and i have enjoyed every sami callihan match with her.

PPV was pretty okay. Nothing horrendous except brian cage and rvd but now that i know he was injured it makes more sense. They really pulled it off even with the entire roster injured and teasa twitter shit. Bravo impact

So gail, daga, moose, scorpio sky and rich swann are all defending tessa but white dudes with neck beards on twitter are calling her racist anyways. Gail and Dave meltzer are correct about addressig shit outaide of twitter. Apologizong to giga-virgins who froth at the mouth when people mess up is pointless. As soon as social media clout is more important then what you actually think then you have failed. Its the main reason circlejerk is filtered to circlejerk. If you say things for likes and hearts and follows and upvotes then you are saying nothing. There are people on twitter who have created brands of themselves to a point where they NEED to speak up and drag people or their followers will rage at them.

This goes back to when Meltzer said the Iconics have big tits or something and the internet lost their mind and then he apologized on twitter and got publically shamed and shit on for even saying sorry. Its fucking stupid.

>Speaking on Busted Open Radio, IMPACT producer and someone considered a mentor by Tessa, Tommy Dreamer, gave his thoughts on the situation.

"I texted Tessa, she didn't get back to me. I went and spoke to her at the show. She was not in a good place mentally because it becomes almost like gang warfare where everyone jumps on the hot topic," he said. "I would state that I have a great relationship with her. I also have a great relationship with a lot of the other women that were talking about her. I was not there. I do know that there was a very physical confrontation between her and this other wrestler that led to a physical brawl. Sometimes, in the heat of battle, you say things that you will regret. Or, if you're in a physical fight, you may not have a regret with that person.

I know that Tessa used to date a famous wrestler who's in WWE that is African American [Ricochet]. I know Tessa is currently engaged to Daga, who is Mexican. I do not feel that Tessa is racist. I could 99.9% say that Tessa has never shown -- when I first met Tessa, a lot of people said, 'Watch this girl' and told me some things about her. I formulate my opinion for how somebody treats me. I also understand that people treat me differently because I'm Tommy Dreamer or I'm helping out behind the scenes. I remember one time, she comes up and says, 'I don't think you like me.' I said, 'I don't even know you. Let me get to know you.' She said, 'Fair enough.' That was it."

>Dreamer went on to tell stories of how wrestlers used to drink and drive, how Paul Heyman would illegally bounce checks, and how he remembers physical confrontations in the ECW locker room where certain language was used, but that didn't mean the person should be identified as a racist. Dreamer's encompassing point was that "people make mistakes."

Dreamer continued, "I think Tessa will eventually address it. I don't know about the bullying thing. Yes, the whole supporting of other people, I think it comes with maturity. Tessa has done nothing wrong in her time with IMPACT Wrestling that I have seen. She will probably address it. I don't know the situation. But when I say it's gang mentality, I was in an arena full of wrestling fans chanting her name. I was in a locker room with every wrestler in the back supporting her. And turn a negative into a positive, just because not everybody has all the facts."

>Tessa has not addressed the allegations since her public denial. In a post-match dark promo at IMPACT Hard To Kill, she did state "nobody is perfect," but did not make mention of the allegations.

The Sandman 'incident' last year was very similar, with a dozen wildly different retellings of the same one conversation given by different women, from him being this out of control sexist pig who insulted everyone in Jordynne Grace's version to him simply stating he has no confidence in wrestling fans to accept women's wrestling past a certain level in Tessa's retelling. As a general rule If you read something on social media, you should assume it takes liberties with reality until proven otherwise. Whole thing's a game to these people, who cares what actually happened?

There's a good video that came recently by a certain youtuber which discusses the fact that with cancel culture/twitter mobs, it doesn't matter what the actual facts of the case are, it's the wave of accusations. If there are only one or two accusations, you can survive, but if 4 or 5 people come at you at once, suddenly it snowballs. People think "okay, it's 1 person's word against 5 here, so it's more than likely the case that the 5 are right".

Then those people start taunting/baiting the accused and the pressure piles on then. Then THEIR followers see all this stuff being thrown at one person and then the facts are really out the window, it's just full-on mob mode now.

A lot of people are starting to criticise cancel culture now, even those on the more socially progressive side. Things like twitter enabled good things to happen, like #MeToo and holding R. Kelly's feet back to the fire, but there's also been a lot of cases where one accusation snowballed out of control and by the end of it, someone innocent got steamrolled.

A new bait tactic on twitter is to post clips of this one twitch streamer with legitimate Tourettes. She'll yell the most offensive slurs her brain can produce at that moment of time. People will clip it, post it to the type of people who go off, and they go off. They start building their mob, and then when the moment is right, someone puts a pin in their ballon by telling them "You know this girl has a legitimate condition right? Please tell you're not this insensitive?!?". And then, with their faces good and red, they have to explain they're not ableist.

Dave Chappelle, to much media attention, also covered the topic in one of his recent specials and similar critiqued cancelling people.

It's such a tough thing to decide how to proceed. As a society, we want to be able to hold people who have done wrong things to account. At the same time, innocent people don't deserve to be crushed in an instant by a wild twitter mob that springs out of nowhere. Everything happens so fast now because of social media and people have to put this long, dreary "statement" video dealing with the accusations, one way or another. "I've got the receipts" is now apart of the 2020 lexicon, which is a somewhat worrisome development. People plan out arguments weeks in advance.

I've no idea what the solution is going to be but this developing phenomenon is probably going to come to a head in the next few years, because I don't know that "cancel culture" is substitutable in the long run. We're already seeing some people just resolving to "just don't engage with it/don't take any responsibility". IE if a politician gets accused of something, they just shut down, down engage and they act like they're a duck and the accusation is water. That's fine if they're innocent, but what are we going to do with the ones that are guilty but just breeze past the shit like it's meaningless?

I also sense people are getting fatigued by all the stories. Even here on the social media thread sometimes there's just too many stories to follow at a time, which results in that "WHO CARES?!" response you're talking about. As I said, no idea where it's all going but something is going to change soon one way or another soon enough I feel.

>We are told by a number of sources that Brian Cage has not yet signed anywhere with anyone, but his current Impact Wrestling deal is up and he's mulling over offers from several promotions. The angle with Rob Van Dam at the Hard to Kill PPV that took Cage out of their match was done to prevent him from furthering injuring himself as it is believed he has a torn bicep.
