Hey ho howdy, folks. Another week, another Impact report. It’s just a job, but I do it for YOU PEOPLE. If I’ve learned anything in THIS BUSINESS, it’s that AJ Styles should maybe probably not be my mentor. A few things:
-This week over at The Mandible Claw, Brandon laid out his WWE/Chikara crossover theory before we read some anatomically incorrect wrestling smut, Drew Cordeiro joined me to talk Americanrana and this Sunday’s Point of No Return, and the ever so Handsome Dan Barry did the same. He also talked about wrestling at Riker’s Island which is a must listen because seriously…Riker’s Island.
-If you’re anywhere in the New England area/within five hours away from Rhode Island, you have to get out to Beyond Wrestling’s Point of No Return on Sunday. Trust me. I can’t make it, but I can live vicariously through YOU PEOPLE.
-I myself will be at Smash Wrestling’s CAN-USA Classic in Etobicoke to cheer on the lovely Veda Scott. If you’re in the Toronto area and haven’t decided to road

AJ Styles recently spoke with DJ Brando of U-Rock 99.1. Here are some highlights from the interview.
On what’s it like to be a wrestler for a living: “It’s having one of the coolest jobs ever. I mean, you actually get to go to work and enjoy what you are doing. Not a lot of people can say that. I’m blessed.”
On being TNA’s first ever grand slam champion: “I’ve won...
TNA has packaged the Bound for Glory Series as its WrestleMania with a three month tour of matches leading up to it. We never saw that with WrestleMania (maybe the road to WM counts, but its not the same), or SummerSlam or Starrcade or even The Great American Bash.
I have to admit up front that I am a WWE guy so I know that I have a certain level of bias. TNA Wrestling is really hit and miss and I think what turns me off the most is the inconstancy. Let’s look at last night.
Hulk Hogan made the following tweet, hyping up next week’s iMPACT!. The show was taped last Thursday (September 12) and full **SPOILERS** are posted on the main newsboard.

This week's TNA Wrestling Impact is a special “free PPV event” (screw you, Mike Tenay), that being No Surrender. We will see the finals of the BFG Series, as well as Bully Ray defending the World title against Mr. Anderson. Anderson’s contract with TNA is up shortly, so I’m sure he’ll win.
It is noted in the spoilers for next week’s iMPACT! that TNA President Dixie Carter appeared to turn heel in a segment with AJ Styles. That is the case as her character is now heading in a new direction.
Also taped for next week was ODB defeating Mickie James to win the TNA Knockouts Title.
Here are the confirmed matches for next week’s TNA iMPACT! broadcast:

"On Thursday at the “No Surrender” IMPACT special, Aces and Eights President Bully Ray successfully defended the World...

Austin Aries spoke with Adam Carriker and Chuck Carroll about the the ramifications if AJ Styles jumped ship to World Wrestling Entertainment.
“That’s news to me. I wasn’t aware. I don’t know if there would be a huge impact. I think one thing that both companies and every successful company has is you need to have depth. And football teams are the same way. If a guy goes...
