TNA Hardcore Justice Play By Play – Bobby Roode Vs. Austin Aries

What, me watch a second TNA PPV in consecutive months? Well, last month’s Destination X was my third favorite wrestling show of the year, just behind WWE’s Extreme Rules and WrestleMania 28. And I have been paying attention to their ever improving television show since then. While they aren’t as hot as they were going into Destination X, this show should be pretty good too with several strong match-ups.

With the new stipulation in the title match where neither guy gets a rematch, you’d have to think Roode is getting his belt back, or else they may have booked themselves into a hole.

1. Gunner and Kid Kash vs. Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez

It’s odd to see Chavo in the Mexican babyface role because I’ve seen him so often in the role of trying to help the Mexican babyface get over. The match was fine for the opener. It was an old school tag team match where the heels get the heat on the babyface (Chavo) for a long time until he can finally make the hot tag. Hernandez cleaned house including a running dive over the top rope. Guerrero hit a frog splash off the top rope on Kash for the pin.

Winner: Chavo Guerrero and Hernandez

2. Rob Van Dam vs. Pope vs. Magnus vs. Mr. Anderson

Pope was jumped by Aces & Eights before the match, injuring his shoulder. Anderson just called it a three-way dance. Winner gets 20 points in the Bound For Glory series with falls count anywhere rules.

Kind of a herky jerky match. RVD took a spill off the top rope early and to the floor. Anderson and Magnus beat each other up for a bit, but the match was clearly designed for RVD to hit all of his moves. RVD and Magnus were on the stage and RVD threw a chair at him and Magnus caught it and was hit with the Vandaminator.

Van Dam gets 20 points and is now in second place in the BFG series.

Winner:
3. Kazarian vs. Devon
