Last night I was privilaged to attend my first TNA Wrestling event. It was one of the coolest nights I have ever had. I first want to thank TNA President Dixie Carter for giving me free tickets to the show and promising me a good time. She definitely fulfilled her promise. I am not going to go into details about the matches but here are the quick results.
Rhino def. Jeff Jarrett
Jay Lethal def. Eric Young to retain the X Division championship
Madison Rayne def. Angelina Love to retain the Knockouts championship
Motor City Machine Guns def. Generation Me to retain the Tag Team titles
Abyss def. Sabu in a Monsters Ball Match
Main Event: Mr. Anderson def. AJ Styles
My favorite parts of those matches were watching Eric Young being EY, and the tag match. Both were highlights of the show for me. The other highlights were meeting and shaking hands with nearly everyone on the roster that was there. I want to go on record and say that I have never lost my voice once at a WWE show, but last night my voice was gone before the Main Event even started.
Some might say that TNA only had 500 people at the arena last night but those 500 got to witness the best wrestling show live in Grand Rapids since the last time TNA came. TNA does a lot for their fans, and the wrestlers are appreciative of the fan support. I keep hearing all this crap about “Stand Up for WWE.” Well Iam standing for a company who appreciates their fans, interacts with their fans, and listens to their fans.
If you have never been to a TNA live event you need to go. It is well worth it. Be sure to check out the Hollywood’s World of Sports page for photos and videos of the show. Thank you Dixie Carter and Thank you TNA.
