Countdown to TNA No Surrender
By SLAM! Wrestling


NO SURRENDER HISTORY



TNA heads north of the border, and like a typical American, says they're going to Toronto. Got news for our neighbours to the south - Oshawa ain't T'rana.

Okay, now that the rant is over (at least until we get to the match previews), we can talk about the fact that this is the first time TNA has crossed the 49th line for a PPV show. What can we expect? Well, Canada will walk away with at least one TNA belt, and could have a stake in all four championships. Not too shabby. Let's see what could happen tonight.


TNA CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH (FOUR WAYS TO GLORY)

Samoa Joe vs. Christian Cage vs. Kurt Angle vs. Booker T

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

Okay, so how is this four ways to glory? Are there four ways to win the match? I only count two (pinfall or submission). I don't mind the "road to" the match being called this name... no wait, I do -- there aren't four ways because Joe's already got the glory and he can win on a DQ or mass countout, so really it was three-and-a-half ways to glory. Sorry folks, my bad -- I was trying to think logically in a TNA preview. It won't happen again. Joe retains.

Jason Clevett

You know the TNA championship has only been defended on pay per view in a singles, non-gimmick match three times in 2008? And those three matches all had a ton of interference and overbooking? Remember when wrestling was champion vs. challenger and that's it? Apparently TNA has forgotten, and thus yet another multi-man match, with the same players, over and over again. Yawn. Joe has been winning this exact match on the house shows, and I don't expect this to be any different, not that anyone will care since the focus seems to be on Jarret and Sting. After we get through this can we please start giving Joe some new challengers?


 
TNA WORLD TAG-TEAM TITLE MATCH

LAX vs. Beer Money, Inc.
 

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

Why are they fighting again? This has to be 20-straight PPVs for these guys. Are there no other teams on the TNA roster? Russo, you should not be angering up my blood this early in a preview - I'm going to end up in the hospital by the time this thing is finished. I'm waiting for the Hector Guerrero swerve, and I think it happens here. This is one championship Canada keeps, as BMI goes over.

Jason Clevett

TNA seems to have forgotten what to do with LAX, despite being one of the most over acts in the company. Beer Money retains.


X-DIVISION TITLE MATCH (TRIPLE THREAT MATCH)

Petey Williams vs. Consequences Creed vs. Shiek Abduhl Bashir

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman

I don't mind the build here, but I don't think anyone's buying Daivari... er... Bashir as a title threat. Let's pray for Petey.

Jason Clevett

Expect Petey to get a huge pop and the audience to be squarely behind him. Hopefully they will let the crowd have their feel-good homegrown boy moment and Petey will retain, but knowing TNA, they won't. Speaking of great ideas in TNA, who is the genius who put the sound of an airplane into Bashir's theme music? Class all the way, this company.


  GRUDGE MATCH (MMA RULES MATCH)

AJ Styles vs. Frank Trigg
 

SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman


There's way too little build on this one. An MMA match should have had much more time to grow. Obviously this is only the first match between the two. If TNA is trying to recreate Owen-Shamrock, it's not going to work. Trigg wins.

Jason Clevett

Far to soon to have this be a MMA style match. I don't care about the match either, and its sad when I say that about anything involving AJ Styles. Trigg wins with shenanigans.
  TAG TEAM GRUDGE MATCH

Team 3D vs. Abyss/Matt Morgan
 


SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman


Abyss and Morgan...sure, why not? I mean the two are big guys who like to fight. Feh. Somewhere, Big Mama Dudley is yelling at her two boys for re-signing with TNA. I suppose their reward will come in this bout 3D wins.

Jason Clevett

Abyss is dead in the water and TNA seems to start and stop on Morgan. Team 3D just re-signed contracts, so this would be the renewal of their push as opposed to their farewell match. Team 3D wins.
  WOMEN'S TITLE MATCH

Taylor Wylde vs. Angelina Love
 


SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman


A Canadian wins here, and really, that's all that matters -- but for prediction sake, I'll take Wylde to retain.

Jason Clevett

Another special bout for the Canadian fans and it will be very interesting to see how the audience treats both Canadian girls. I could actually see them turning on Wilde and supporting Love -- we are wacky that way. This one is hard to pick, I will go with Wilde retaining.

  GRUDGE MATCH (LADDER OF LOVE)

Sonjay Dutt vs. Jay Lethal
 


SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman


Ladder of Love? Please - this should be called labour of love, because this has been hard to get through. I just love that this is coming to an end... hopefully. Dutt takes it when Val finally turns on Lethal.

Jason Clevett


Oh what could have been. An attempt to recreate Liz and Randy has turned into a joke. This can't be any worse than the tuxedo match, can it? Can it? Please tell me it can't. Both guys realize that Val is an idiot for not just picking one, and discover they have bonded through violence. They then realize that they actually love each other, and since it's Canada and legal, they get married themselves. Oh crap, I think I just gave TNA ideas.

  GRUDGE MATCH (SIX-PERSON TAG MATCH)

The Rock N' Rave Infection vs. The Prince Justice Brotherhood
 


SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman


So Hemme's mixing it up with the guys? Riiiight. I think we need to send a Canadian rocker down to Oshawa to kick the fake guitar players' asses. Hell, even Loverboy could do it. The PJB'ers take it.

Jason Clevett


RNR hasn't won anything significant in ages. The Superheroes win.

  GRUDGE MATCH (FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE MATCH)

Awesome Kong vs. ODB
 


SLAM! Predictions

Jon Waldman


Thank god they didn't call this a Bimbo Brawl.As much as I'd like to see ODB take this match, Kong will come out on top.

Jason Clevett


Everything that the Diva's title match at Unforgiven wasn't, this will be. Hard hitting, exciting, I love Kong. Crowd should also be rabid for this one as the pound the snot out of each other, en route to ODB scoring a victory.
