Totally Missed This In The Impact Review

But wouldn’t the ending mean that Hardy won by DQ and therefore is champion???


  1. The Killjoy says:

    No, because the ref never made or was never able to make that call. The only reason the match ended was because there was no more time available to stay on air. It’s a time limit draw technically.

    Translation: loophole because TNA screwed up.

  2. Jay says:

    No because this is TNA we are talking about here. We say one thing and do another.

  3. LSN says:

    I thought the same thing, to be honest. But the loophole here is that since Ray attacked the referee instead of Hardy, Sure, logic says that Ray was interfering on behalf of Roode, but there’s no essential proof that Roode had Ray attack the ref, so the DQ honestly couldn’t be positively confirmed as intentional by Roode.

    What confuses me is where they go from here. Storm is number one contender, but Hardy would seem to be in line for another title shot after being screwed once again. I guess they could do Storm vs Hardy for the first shot at Roode, but the poor booking at the end of the main event really puts TNA in a bind here. Roode didn’t have to go over clean, as he’s a cowardly heel, but they could have booked him as a crafty heel ala Edge at Summerslam 2oo6, where Edge faced the same stipulation, and still won dirty. That’s far better booking then what they’re doing with Roode currently.

    Yeah Roode’s Title run here to this point has just been lackluster. All he is doing is getting Counted out or DQ’ed. They should Book it like Edge’s 2006 run or even one of HHH’s 1st runs.

    I think it just sets up for Bully Ray vs Bobby Rhoode vs Jeff Hardy vs James Storm. Its All Against The Odds after all.
