Recap from TJ Hawke:
Chavo and Hernadez’s TNA Tag Championships are on the line. Roode and Aries are partners that don’t get along. This match was taped in England.
Aries accidentally hit Roode with a tope suicida early on. Commercial Break.
Back from the commercial, Chavo & Hernandez were working over Aries. Aries and Roode managed to isolate Chavo though, and they then worked him over. This went on for a while. I didn’t find this beatdown segment to be especially compelling. Eventually, Chavo and Roode both went down after a double lariat spot. Hernandez tagged in and ran wild. Hernandez hit Aries with a backbreaker and a slingshot shoulder tackle. Chavo gave Aries two Amigos. Aries avoided the third. Chavo avoided a brainbuster. Aries and Roode started jawing with each other. Roode left the match. Chavo finally gave Aries the third Amigo. Chavo went for a frog splash, but Roode returned and sent Chavo to the mat. Aries gave Hernandez a low blow. Chavo ate a spinebuster from Roode. Aries then hit a 450: 1…2…3!
This was a fine TV match. With the exception of Roode and Aries occasionally not getting along, this was all formula. The UK crowd definitely added to the match, and I hope TNA continues to go there once a year to tape Impact.
Match Rating: ***
