Austin Aries & Robert Roode vs. Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez from TNA’s Impact Wrestling TV 2013

 

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.
