TNA Live Event Results – October 9th, 2009
La Crosse Center – La Crosse, Wisconsin
Report by Cody Endres,



1) Daniels beat Shark Boy
2) ODB beat Madison Rayne
3) Hernandez beat Homicide
4) Beer Money (Robert Roode & James Storm) beat The British Invasion (Doug Williams & Brutus Magnus)
5) Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) beat Eric Young & Sheik Abdul Bashir
6) AJ Styles defeated Samoa Joe to retain the TNA Heavyweight Title

The turnout was significantly lower than the last wrestling event which was a WWE house show back in January. Shark Boy attempted to work as a heel during the opening match, but the crowd cheered both men. Earl Hebner spanked ODB in a funny spot. Beer Money was ridiculously over and did their usual shtick on the mic. Young cut a suprisingly good promo where he mentioned that Brett Favre told him to get in and out of Wisconsin quickly. AJ vs. Joe was probably the best pro wrestling match held in the La Crosse Center since a rare one on one matchup between Edge & Brock Lesnar that took place several years ago.

Jeremy Borash was in full effect tonight giving away backstage passes and taping one of those small segments that airs on the company website. After the main event, fans were allowed to come into the ring and have their picture taken with AJ Styles for $20. Styles was a complete professional during the main event and picture duty, but was coughing repeatedly and seemed ill. After all the pictures were taken, Styles left abruptly coughing all the way up the aisle. Also during pictures, talent was walking around the guardrail signing autographs. Daniels, Earl Hebner, Hernandez, Alex Shelley, Chris Sabin, James Storm, Robert Roode, ODB, & Jeremy Borash were all signing items. Most of the guys were moving pretty quickly with a sharpie already in their hand. ODB was genuinely nice and took time out to talk and pose for many pictures. I told Earl Hebner I enjoyed the Highspots shoot interview he did with his brother several years back. He looked at me like I had two heads. Perhaps the most disappointing moment of the show was the amount of rats around ringside during the autograph session. While the wrestlers were signing autographs for small children, these women were pestering them about where they were staying, what hotel, etc…

All in all, it was a great house show. I routinely get frustrated with the television/PPV product, but the house shows are superb. That being said, it’s sad that LaCrosse always seems to get a house show after a long tour or an international tour. Both WWE & TNA always do really quick shows and most of the talent is drained. Borash couldn’t even lie and tell us that La Crosse was in consideration for a TNA PPV. Ouch.
