It is here!
At last, my TNA 2010 EWR series has arrived and we are kicking things off with a BANG! Destination X!
To give you a bit of a background to this for those of you who never saw my update blog…
- My WCW 1998 EWR playthrough is currently on hold for now as I try something different.
- I decided to give TNA 2010 a try because of how bad TNA in 2010 actually was, and I decided to see how I could improve the product!
I made a load of signings, up-and-comers and veterans which you will see gradually appear on the show as they build themselves up on TV.
These guys including…
- Alberto Del Rio (Who goes by Alberto Banderas in the game)
- Monty Brown
- El Generico aka Sami Zayn
- Kevin Steen
- Jerry Lynn
- Tyler Black aka Seth Rollins
- LA Par-K
- Austin Aries
- PAC and Jon Moxley (aka Adrian Neville and Dean Ambrose)
- Michelle McCool
- And a lot more…
A lot to play with in time, but right now I want to make use of the most over guys on the roster. So… let’s get to it!
Pre-Show – Bobby Lashley and Abyss chase off Doug Williams and Desmond Wolfe
Abyss and Bobby Lashley chase off the two Brits as the two teams clash later on in the show in a hardcore tag team match
Match 1 – “Team 3D” Brother Ray and Brother Devon def. “Motor City Machine Guns” Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley
A lot of tag team feuds in the work right now to kick things off. Just to have a look at what I’ve got to work with. I’ve got two prolific tag teams to work with which excites me in Team 3D and the Motor City Machine Guns. Team 3D goes over but the Guns attack them post-match as the feud is only just getting started.
Match 2 – Jay Lethal def. Kevin Nash
Yep. Jay Lethal goes over Kevin Nash at Destination X… I was able to do that! Having Lethal go over Nash is the perfect way to build him up as a shock win over Nash should get people’s attention.
Match 3 – Abyss and Bobby Lashley def. Doug Williams and Desmond Wolfe in a hardcore tag team match
This was a very short feud but it had a decent rating. 84% this match got. Abyss and Lashley go over.
Match 4 – Samoa Joe def. Jeff Hardy, Eric Young and Mick Foley in a fatal four way match to become the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship
These four are all feuding with each other so why not have a four way! Joe wins after choking out Mick Foley to win a TNA World Title shot. He’s not yet cashed in the title shot but I think I’m going to book him in the main event of Lockdown.
Match 5 – “Beer Money Inc” Bobby Roode (c) and James Storm (c) def, Raven and Rhino via DQ to retain the TNA Tag Team Championship
Raven, a remnant of the WCW 1998 game, returns to team with Rhino and fight for the tag titles which Beer Money just won. Raven, Rhino, Stevie Richards and Taz are all in a heel stable called the Extreme Coalition and the tag title match ends in a DQ win for the champs after Stevie and Taz interfere. The stable stands tall at the end. 88% from this awesome tag team match!
Match 6 -Monty Brown def. Jeff Jarrett
Monty Brown returns to TNA to get a clean victory over Jeff Jarrett.
Match 7 – Mr Anderson def. Sting
Mr Anderson turned heel after losing a match to Sting on Impact, attacking the Stinger after calling him out. In this match, Anderson picked up the win after putting his foot on the ropes for the pin. Really ecstatic about this feud and great ratings so far. However, Sting making himself a non-wrestler really does mess up my plans for them. -.-
Match 8 – Kurt Angle def. AJ Styles (c) via DQ in a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match
Similar to the Steve Austin/Kurt Angle 2001 Summerslam ending… Angle has AJ beat a number of times but the ref’s always out or something. AJ eventually low blows Angle for the DQ. 89%… an awesome end to the show.
