Triple H, October 2011:

“When I grew up, I hated Hogan. I thought he was terrible and didn’t like to watch him. I was like Punk in a way. I liked the Steamboats and Flairs and the ones that could go. Would I be right in saying that Hogan was the wrong guy to go with, and they should’ve changed directions and gone with Steamboat because he was the better wrestler? Ludicrous.” - Triple H. October, 2011.

2011 TNA Lockdown

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Final Resolution was here.

TNA World Title: Frankie Kazarian d. Bobby Roode
X Title: Doug Williams (w/Flair) d. Chris Sabin
Tag Titles:  Brian Kendrick/Bubba Ray Dudley d. Young Bucks
Samoa Joe d. Christopher Daniels
Jeff Jarrett d. Kurt Angle
Matt Hardy (w/Bischoff) d. RVD
Sting d. Ric Flair
Future Endeavors (Kennedy/Burke) d. TexMex (Storm/Hernandez)

I'm unaware of a Slammiversary dark match; if it were to turn out that the Bucks worked one, I'd be inclined to reconsider the result in the tag match.  If Red worked a dark match, I'd be inclined to reconsider the result in the tag match.  Thinking from the bottom up, FE is the heel team, TM the babyface team, Kennedy pins Hernandez and the feud continues.  Flair turned heel at FinalRes, but makes a point of having his boys (Williams and the champ, Roode, with a promise that "tonight, the 4th man will be revealed) not come to the ring with him, because he wants his last ever match with Sting to be even up; Sting put his career on the line going into the match; Sting goes over.  Matt promises a surprise for Van Dam - and delivers with a debuting Bischoff.  You Counterfactual scholars know why; Van Dam and Matt had a year+ long WWF feud, they met in consecutive Manias, and Bischoff was Matt's manager.  It's really the only role Bischoff played in the WWF.  Kurt has almost entirely been a TNA heel; using the Vic Mackey character he developed at the close of his WWF run - but we take the real life "Jarrett stole Kurt's wife" angle to turn him babyface - he loses here in screwjob when Karen, appearing the first time, and looking like a wife and not a stripper, chairshots Kurt.  Joe has always been Joe, but in killing AJ at Lockdown he really ramped up the brutality, Joe pissed at no longer being champ, pissed, generally, at the world - that causes AJs boy Daniels to return to the company - and Joe pretty brutally kills him too.

Bubba and Kendrick are heels, Kendrick told the Bucks he'd find a partner and take their straps, that he wasn't going to passed by - near the end of the build, the partner's revealed to be Bubba, in full heel mode.  Williams/Sabin has been a good program; Williams goes over; he and Flair doubleteam beatdown Sabin postmatch - Joe runs in - and joins the beating.  He's the 4th man - and he kills Sabin absolutely dead.  Flair/Williams/Joe hold up four fingers.  They and Roode are the Four Horsemen.  

Joe/Williams/Flair wind up kicked out of ringside as the champ, Roode, takes on his former longtime tag partner Kazarian - and loses the belt; its a good sized upset - Frankie Kazarian wins the belt - the Horsemen will vow revenge.

Real world Bound for Glory will mean Counterfactual Slammiversary; at the top of July will be the second half of the build to Summer Slam 2010.
