Harrak’s Quick Quips: TNA Lockdown 2012 (Bobby Roode, James Storm, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle)
by Matthew Harrak on April 16, 2012


(Ed. Note: This was the coverage I provided last night live during the PPV on the official Pulse Wrestling Twitter account, @pulsewrestling. Be sure to follow us every PPV for the same coverage and analysis.)

- Getting ready for some good ole cage cock-fighting.

- New match added to Lockdown, ODB & EY vs Rosita & Sarita for the Knockout titles.

- If TNA knows how to do anything right, they know how to cut a promo video.

- Starting out with Lethal Lockdown? Nice respect for the World title match at least.

- I’m guessing no big set for Lockdown since we keep getting the “follow the tough wrestler” shot like we got in London.

- When did Austin Aries become a babyface?

- What the…? Bald Kaz?!

- Maybe if we got some back story about Kaz shaving his head like Daniels, maybe I wouldn’t hate it so much.

- I give Garrett Bischoff credit for taking these bumps. It’s not easy.

- There’s too many people involved in Lethal Lockdown. 6-8 TOPS.

- It’s the return of the 1995 ponytail!

- That singlet is not doing RVD’s belly any favors.

- It’s not TNA PPV in Nashville wo a guitar shot! Not worst Lethal Lockdown match & at least there was a story.

- Theres a big screen and entranceway! Why won’t they show it?! Sorry it’s going to bother me all night.

- First PPV match for Chris Sabin and its in a cage. Ouch.

- It’s awesome to see MMG & Magnus/Joe. But 2 teams do not a division make.

- When anything happening on TNA PPV is trending on Twitter, it shows Twitter Trends are HIGHLY overrated. You can get anything to trend.

- Digging Joe’s Mohawk. Gotta update my WWE ’12 CAW now.

- The arena looks packed but the crowd sound is awful. Is this WrestleMania 27?

- Very good tag team match. Don’t get to say that enough nowadays.

- Devon vs Robbie E? Can I NOT be on the list?

- Haven’t we been talking about Devon becoming more than a tag team wrestler for about 3 years now?

- I don’t know if I’m #TeamRoode or #TeamStorm but I know I hate Twilight for starting this “team” shit.

- The TNA TV title is dying slower than the WWE Cruiserweight title did.

- Word is Matt Morgan’s contract is coming up & he may be heading to the WWE. Look for Crimson to win here.

- That said, great, great promo from Morgan.

- Not so subtle shot at The King there by Taz.

- When did Velvet Sky adopt Cheerleader Melissa’s gear?

- It really bugs me that Velvet is billed from “The Big Apple”. She grew up down the road from me in CT dammit!

- Beautiful power bomb by the Knockouts!

- These two had great chemistry in the house show I attended. Surprised they haven’t done more together.

- My best buddy & new dad would enjoy Velvet’s outfit tonight.

- TNA just called Ric Flair a 2-time Hall of Famer. Has WWE’s HOF become the standard-bearer for the industry?

- I feel like this PPV is 2 matches & time killer in between.

- Hulk Hogan debuted in 1977 & Ric Flair debuted in 1972. Unbelievable.

- What was the point of that? Wait, it involved Hogan & Flair. When does it ever have a point?

- I like Crimson’s new music. I hate the fact that his nickname is “The Undefeated”. Ugh.

- Matt Morgan, at this age & stage of his career, could be incredible in the WWE. Or he could be Chris Harris.

- And that one spot of Morgan refusing an easy win means he will lose tonight.

- If Crimson put on some more weight & muscle mass, maybe I would take him more seriously.

- God I hope this crowd wakes up for James Storm because they’ve given nothing to these performers tonight.

- Quick, when was the last time a HEEL was “undefeated” for this long?

- This week, Kurt Angle said he & Hardy could top Taker/HHH at WM. I didn’t post the story cause I was laughing too hard.

- So these Lockdown matches are NOT no DQ? Aren’t all cage matches traditionally no DQ? TNA breaking barriers.

- “You never really know what’s oozing out of Jeff Hardy” – really Taz?

- So who is coming off the top of the cage first? Remember when Angle practically killed himself last year?

- That was the most awesome Vader Bomb I’ve ever seen.

- Jeff Hardy could not have hit that Swanton more perfectly & safely. Thank God!

- That was a good match and best of the night but it was not Taker/HHH. And I HATED last years Taker/HHH.

- I would love to see James Storm win & enter into programs with Bully Ray & Daniels among others.

- Being in Nashville, I think we may see a Storm win. You gotta remember, this isn’t WWE.

- I did really enjoy the EY/ODB wedding from Impact. One of the better wrestling weddings in a while.

- This has to be a great gig for EY.

- Better beard: Eric Young? Or Daniel Bryan?

- I know that Rosa just pretty much shimmys but I still think she’s a better dancer than Rosita & Sarita.

- Subpar go-home promo from Bobby Roode when he’s capable of much more.

- Whereas this pre tape is awesome.

- Screw the Steve Austin subtlety, let’s have Storm enter in a damn pickup truck.

- Bobby Roode is a fantastic heel. But James Storm is a better babyface.

- WWE doesn’t allow blood. TNA has blood in the main event before the match even “starts”.

- Are they going to go for an Austin/WM 13 moment with Storm? Rather see him as the title holder though.

- I think we’re seeing the peak of Roode in this match. He needs to lose the title to add another dimension.

- This is the problem with cage matches. The whole “climb slow so you can catch me” spots.

- Holy crap that was a Codebreaker!

- Really nice pop for that kick out! Thought the crowd was asleep.

- Super kick out of the cage?

- Did I seriously just post that seconds before the kick? I mean good finish but come on.

- I seriously can’t remember the last time I saw a feud finish on a TNA PPV. Fans are calling them out on it & are saying Storm wins on Impact.

- The overhaul TNA needs is to either eliminate PPVs all together or all in & MAKE people spend money for them.
