The Ultimate LOLTNA Compilation: 15 Years of Unintentional Comedy (2002-2017)

Post by Bandit » Wed Jun 19, 2019 12:35 pm

I'll make this its own thread because I think it's going to be too big for the TNA thread. It's a compilation of all of the various LOLTNA lists from various places and ones I've added and expanded on.

1) In their first ever match Cheex breaks the ring and almost ruins the live show when the ring crew had to run in to fix the ring before the live PPV broadcast began.

2) The Dupps do an incest angle where they’re all having sex with their cousin.

3) Don Harris wrestles in a shirt with the Nazi SS logo. He says it isn’t racist and is “a biker thing.” Jerry Jarrett has to do damage control on wrestling podcasts saying the company didn’t know what the logo was and nobody involved is a racist.

4) After the racist scandal Ron Killings does an angle where he says everyone at TNA is a racist. He also attempts to rape an African American TNA cage dancer after she disagrees with his stances on race and wrestling.

5) Puppet the little person wrestler does an angle where he masturbates inside of a trash can while talking to TNA backstage interviewer Goldylocks. While masturbating he asks if Goldylocks wants some of his “porridge.”

6) During a fight Puppet pulls out a handgun in the ring. He is stopped from shooting anyone after Jeff Jarrett hits him with a chair.

7) TNA discovers they have been scammed by Jay Hassman, a pay per view marketer, who told them they were selling 75,000 PPVs a week when the number was really between 20,000 and 40,000.

8) J Sports & Entertainment LLC sells NWA-TNA to Panda Energy International on Halloween Day 2002. Jerry Jarrett sells his 71% share of the company for $250,000. CEO Bob Carter puts daughter Dixie in charge of day to day operations. She had a chance meeting with Jeff Jarrett, who talked to her about wrestling and she was reminded about having fun as a teenager going to World Class shows in Dallas and wanted to become involved with wrestling again.


9) After a failed attempt rejoining WWE, Vince Russo debuts in TNA on November 27th, 2002 in an angle with Jeff Jarrett where it is revealed he has been the masked man attacking him for weeks. He also helms their creative team.

10) A team of wrestling penises called The Johnsons (Rod and Richard) debut in TNA.

11) TNA has a team called The Hot Shots wrestle with their pants stuffed to look like they have erections. Member Cassidy Riley cuts a promo saying “We’re pricks, we’re proud and we are protruding!”

12) Brian Christopher debuts and feuds with Jerry Lawler (who isn’t even in the promotion) by cutting promos on his father every week and ignoring his real TNA feud with Scott Hall.


13) Babyface Jeff Jarrett cuts a promos calling Ricky Steamboat’s decision to give title shots to Apolo and Sabu before him “reverse racial discrimination.”

14) Bob Ryder goes into debt to pay for TNA wrestlers to be able to fly in to shows after TNA claims they don’t have the funds to pay for airplane tickets. Ryder is forced to sell his boat to pay off his credit card debt to airlines after Panda Energy never reimburses him.

15) TNA’s music composer Dale Oliver puts out a cease and desist order for TNA to stop using his music after they had stopped paying him for a month. Two shows aired with all music muted out until they resolved the dispute.

16) TNA has a boxing match between Dustin “Screech” Diamond and TNA timekeeper Tiny. Before the match, Sean Waltman had cut a promo talking about preferring TNA to modern WWE because he wanted wrestling and not stupid skits.


17) Russo has Roddy Piper cut a worked-shoot promo on him claiming he killed Owen Hart. Russo claims Piper went into business for himself but others claim to have been aware he asked Piper to use Owen Hart’s death for heel heat. Piper also calls Russo “The Osama bin Laden of wrestling.”


18) Alicia Webb does an angle that goes nowhere when she appears to be a prostitute demanding money for past services from men who look embarrassed she’s asking on camera.

19) A nasty e-mail from Ron Killings to Terry Taylor is leaked on the internet. In it, Killings says he’s angry TNA is demanding he repay them for money for surgery on an injury that happened in their ring, the amount of which is what he claims is half of what TNA is paying him per year. He also claims a major TNA employee is calling him the N-Word at meetings and he’s tired of the rest of TNA management covering for him.


20) Vince Russo is fired from TNA on October 1st, 2003, as the company was attempting to sign Hulk Hogan. Hogan claimed he wouldn’t even consider coming in if Vince Russo had a job there. Russo was spotted by wrestlers sobbing in his car in the parking lot after being fired. Hogan only does one angle for TNA in Japan and never comes back.

21) Russo returns to TNA has an on screen babyface character in February 2004. Russo makes his recent conversion to born-again Christianity part of his gimmick. His last angle had been slapping a woman for refusing to flash her breasts to the crowd. He leaves again in December 2004 after an angle with Dusty Rhodes where the fans had to vote one of them as the Director of Authority.


22) Konnan sues TNA for racial discrimination and unfit working conditions. He claims in his lawsuit Terry Taylor would give people painkillers with the agreement they not go to the hospital with their injuries in the TNA ring. Konnan is rumored to have settled the lawsuit for $1 million.

23) Survivor contestant Jonny Fairplay debuts in TNA because Dixie Carter’s favorite show was Survivor. He ribs her by claiming she needs to sign Jerrelle Clarke to a contract because he’d heard WWE was pursuing him to make him their next big thing. Clarke is signed to a TNA deal despite WWE scouts and management reportedly not even knowing who he was. Fairplay claims he was paid $350,000 for a few appearances that amounted for 40 minutes total of airtime.


24) AJ Styles has a t-shirt made of his name that looks like it was written in cum stains.

25) Hector Garza, who is in the middle of being put in a main event push, is deported from America after being arrested allegedly smuggling steroids while traveling to an Impact taping.

58) Abyss and James Mitchell do an angle where Mitchell controls Abyss by claiming he knows about Abyss’s darkest secret. Sting gets involved and cuts promos calling Abyss “Chris”. They later have a terrible casket match that inspires one of the first “Fire Russo!” chants from the crowd. The feud entirely rips off the Undertaker/Paul Bearer feud by having Mitchell reveal himself as Abyss’s father.

59) TNA signs Adam “Pacman” Jones, an NFL player that was on suspension for his role in a shooting that paralyzed a former AWA wrestler.

64) In a production meeting it is revealed Mike Tenay didn’t defend Don West when Dixie said she wanted to release him from TNA and have Tenay call the show alone as a cost-cutting measure. Russo turned it into an angle by having Don West turn heel and bring up the real incident in his promos against Mike Tenay.

65) A Taylor Wilde vs Daffney match gets the highest Impact rating in history. TNA responds by not booking Wilde again and rarely using Daffney. Wilde made news while working in TNA after she was spotted by a fan working as a cashier at a Sunglasses Hut store in a mall.

70) TNA does an angle where Samoa Joe starts a stable called The Nation of Violence where he uses a machete as a weapon on Scott Steiner.

71) Survivor Star Jenna Morasca wrestles Sharmell in a match many fans believe to be the worst ever presented by a major promotion. It is revealed Gail Kim quit TNA because they refused to give her a raise while Morasca was paid $500,000 for a few appearances and one match.

72) Dixie Carter does a live shoot interview with Kayfabe Commentaries. She defends Vince Russo by claiming every time the fans have chanted “Fire Russo!” it wasn’t an angle or match he was involved with. Dutch Mantel quickly disputed this.

She is badly injured during the spot and Spike won’t even allow the footage on Impact since they had a rule banning man on woman violence. Daffney goes to the hospital where TNA refuses to pay her bills. She claims she is told by TNA to let the bills go to a bill collection agency because they wanted to negotiate the cost down (despite that affecting her credit score.) Daffney sued TNA and settled out of court.

74) TNA hyped Traci Brooks appearing in an issue of Playboy. She was cut from the magazine after Playboy made a deal to do a cartoon Marge Simpson Playboy issue.

76) TNA does an angle where Dixie Carter holds a company meeting bashing the efforts of the people involved with TNA, saying things need to shape up and that “It’s my way or the highway.”

77) Booker T joins TNA and randomly starts doing an accent instead of speaking in his real voice.

78) Ric Flair joins TNA and makes AJ Styles his protégé. The fans pan the change in AJ as unnatural for him and call him “Ric Flair Jr.” after he starts wearing a feathered robe.

79) Samoa Joe is attacked and kidnapped by a ninja gang.

80) Kazuchika Okada debuts in TNA. He is given a gimmick called Okato, which is based on the Kato character Bruce Lee played on The Green Hornet. New Japan is so angry to this day they refuse to let any of their wrestlers work for TNA. Scott D’Amore and Don Callis apologized personally to Okada and Gedo while attending a New Japan show. They tried to explain that those responsible for Okada’s treatment are gone. But New Japan is holding firm never to do business with them again.

81) Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff sign a deal to take over TNA creative. Hogan is reportedly paid $2 million a year and Bischoff $500,000. Vince Russo works with them for a few weeks and then works out his release when Hogan and Bischoff refuse to use his ideas.

82) TNA holds a Monday night special head to head with Raw. Their first match is a cage match that eventually ends in No Contest when it is discovered nobody can climb out of the cage because of the way it is shaped. Hall, Nash and Waltman re-debut as The Band. The Nasty Boys also debut with a very out of shape Brian Knobbs.

83) Bubba the Love Sponge is brought into TNA due to his friendship with Hogan. He made racist comments about Haitians on his radio show. Awesome Kong, who is Haitian, confronted him about it and ended up getting in a fist fight with him she got the better of. Kong was fired and then Bubba the Love Sponge went on his radio show to attack her calling her “a black bitch.”

84) Orlando Jordan debuted doing a heel bi-sexual gimmick. In one segment he poured milk all over himself for no reason.

85) Hogan cuts a promo saying TNA sucked until he and Bischoff came in. The fans loudly booed and heckled him until he started cutting a promo about Vince McMahon to turn the crowd around.

86) Scott Hall refuses to go to the ring for a scheduled match after putting on his wrestling tights and realizing he had gotten too fat for them.

87) TNA Producer Steve Small addressed the crowd about the negative reactions they had been getting for all of the “new” ex-WWE wrestlers they’ve been trying to push after Hogan and Bischoff took over. He pleads with the crowd to follow with “the stories we are trying to tell” and give them the crowd reactions they want because “you are supposed to be cast members.” After the crowd doesn’t comply Bischoff begins using planted fans scattered about the crowd to cheer and boo what they want.

88) Eric Bischoff allegedly talks Rob Terry into taking hard unprotected chair shots to the head that he doesn’t want to initially do. Bryan Alvarez is outraged by this because it happened a few days after Chris Kanyon’s suicide, which some speculated was possibly due to CTE.

89) Sean Waltman is advertised for a PPV TNA knows he will be unable to attend because he is banned from states with athletic commissions due to having Hepatitis C. They turn it into an angle without Waltman being in on it, by Tazz burying him on commentary for being notorious for no-showing. Eric Young takes Waltman’s place in The Band despite Young having been in the middle of a feud with them.

90) Dixie Carter fires Terry Taylor for the Daffney lawsuit and also new Knockout Rosie Lottalove, who was hired as a novice because she had been attending Brother Devon’s wrestling school, injured wrestlers. He is replaced by Bruce Prichard.

91) Dixie Carter becomes an on screen character after years of saying she would never be on television as a regular character.

92) Rob Van Dam is given the world title despite TNA knowing he was about to reach his limit on the agreed upon dates on his contract. They write him off of TV by having Abyss assault him with Janice and claim he may never wrestle again. The title is vacated, but then Van Dam quickly worked out a new deal with TNA to continue and he easily beat Abyss to win the title back.

93) TNA booked an angle where James Storm blew a fireball in Jeff Hardy’s face. It ended up giving Hardy second degree burns and the footage was deemed too graphic to show on Spike.

94) Bruce Prichard leaves TNA after they cause him tax problems by withholding money from his paychecks to pay the IRS but not actually sending that money to the IRS. He later returns.

95) Paul Heyman was in talks to join TNA creative, but the deal was called off when Heyman said he only wanted one “legend” to stay and Dixie said she refused to fire any of them.

96) TNA holds a tribute show to ECW called Hardcore Justice, but they aren’t allowed to legally say it’s for ECW. The show was panned by critics but ended up being the best selling TNA PPV of 2010. But the ex-ECW wrestlers claimed they were not paid accordingly.

97) TNA decided to drug test wrestlers. The ones that failed were not reprimanded, they were simply informed they failed and then nothing came of it.

98) Jersey Shore cast member JWoww does an angle for TNA, but the promotion always put her in the hour Impact was going head-to-head with Jersey Shore. She gets some entertainment news coverage, but not nearly as much as Snooki being on Wrestlemania. JWoww was paid $15,000 for the appearance, which angered the Knockouts who were suffering pay cuts at this time.

99) TNA redoes the nWo angle with Hogan, Bischoff, Abyss, Jarrett and Hardy all turning heel in the “They” angle. On the Impact episode following the show, “They” did a 45 minute promo explaining the heel turn, announcing they were called Immortal, and then having Ric Flair’s Fortune group merge with them instead of feuding.

100) Dixie and her husband Serge do an angle where she comes into Bischoff’s office, calls him a “smug shit” and then her husband is knocked out and she screams.

103) Jeff Hardy shows up to his match with Sting too high to wrestle. Bischoff comes out and instructs Sting to pin him as a shoot to end the match quickly without anyone being injured.

113) Bound For Glory was booked to end with Bobby Roode defeating Kurt Angle for the world title but the finish is changed in the ring to Angle retaining. It is reported this was Hogan’s idea because he disliked Bobby Roode’s work and didn’t think he could carry the company. Angle is injured and wanted time off to heal his hamstring and is also angry about the finish since now he has to continue wrestling. Hogan tweets attacks on any fan angry about Bobby Roode not winning the world title as “a mark who doesn’t get it.”

120) Scott Steiner attacks Hogan, Bischoff, Dixie and Prichard on an infamous twitter tirade after not being able to come to terms on a new deal. His attacks are mainly on Hogan because he’s angry about how Hogan bashed several wrestlers in the media as not being good enough to carry the company, including current champion Bobby Roode. He says it’s the same exact way WCW looked when it was dying. Hogan replies to Steiner by saying he wants to reconcile with him. Steiner goes to short-lived Indian promotion Ring Ka King.

121) Brooke Hogan is introduced as an on-screen character now in charge of the Knockouts.

126) Jeff Hardy is given a gimmick where the viewers can hear everything he thinks in a monotone.

127) TNA books the 60,000 seat Alamodome for Lockdown 2013. It doesn’t come close to selling out, nor can they give away enough free tickets, so they have to hold the show in a smaller part of the stadium so they aren’t embarrassed.

134) TNA releases Madison Rayne while she is pregnant. They get so much negative publicity they rehire her.

135) TNA lets the contracts of AJ Styles and Bobby Roode expire. Bruce Prichard later explained this was a strategy from Dixie Carter to see if she could get them to stay for less money. It backfires.

136) Bruce Prichard leaves TNA for the second time after being asked to take a pay cut and also move to Nashville.

137) Kurt Angle begins an angle with Bellator fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. It has to be dropped the next week because Bellator informed TNA they don’t want him wrestling before a fight.

138) Hulk Hogan’s deal with TNA ends. Dixie Carter says she wants to renew his deal at the same terms ($2 million a year) but Hogan declines. His exit angle involves a crying Dixie Carter holding his leg and begging him not to leave. Hogan reportedly booked this segment himself because he did not want to put TNA over on his way out because he was planning to return to the WWE.

140) AJ Styles exits the promotion after 12 years due to not wanting to take a paycut.

146) After Daniel Bryan wins the WWE world title, TNA has Eric Young win their world title. Fans mock the moment because Eric Young has a similar beard to Bryan and TNA used similar verbiage during his title win as WWE had for Daniel Bryan. Young’s first challenger was Abyss like Bryan’s was Kane.

147) TNA attempted to go viral with a video parodying Solange attacking Jay-Z in an elevator by doing one where Dixie attacks Rockstar Spud. It is roundly mocked online as awful.

148) TNA is behind on money to their production crew, so they threaten to walk out on the next television taping unless their money is paid up.

149) Impact has an entire hour of outside of the ring segments. Rumors start floating that Vince Russo has returned because the writing starts looking like his work.

150) Spike TV contacts Carter about the rumors of Russo’s return, making it clear they will not tolerate his employment with the company as a writer. Carter promises them these are just internet rumors and he isn’t back. Vince Russo reveals this to be a lie after he attempts to e-mail Mike Tenay production notes but accidentally sends the e-mail to PWInsider writer Mike Johnson. On July 27th, 2014 Spike officially announced it was cancelling TNA Impact. Dixie held a meeting to claim they weren’t cancelled, they decided to leave on their own because they were no longer happy with the promotion Spike TV was giving them.

151) On the September 24th Impact episode, TNA reveals they don’t have any bookings for the rest of 2014 after Bound For Glory. Fans start speculating that this will be their final show.

152) TNA announced they had signed a new deal with Destination America, which was in 48% less homes than Spike TV. They were reportedly close to signing with WGN America, but after the network told them they didn’t want to debut the show until sometime in 2015, TNA had to decline because they believed they would go out of business if they don’t have immediate television.

153) On TNA’s final Spike TV episode, they held a countdown of the greatest moments in history. Bully Ray putting Dixie Carter through a table was #1, the formation of Immortal was #2.

154) Mike Tenay is replaced on commentary by Josh Matthews.

155) TNA’s debut on Destination America is panned by everyone. The production has taken a big drop in quality without Spike’s help and equipment. Carter claims in an interview the bad lighting was “a creative decision to dim the lights” and not that they couldn’t afford a good lighting rig.

156) Destination America reportedly blocks the promotion from taping Impact episodes in England because they only want American filmed shows to go along with the network theme.

160) Destination America adds Ring Of Honor to the network to follow Impact without asking TNA for permission.

161) Less than a year into their deal, TNA announces that they are leaving Destination America. TNA again acts like it was their decision to leave, but Dave Meltzer reports the network had a clause to cancel the show after 6 months if they weren’t happy. TNA put out a press release denying the story and threatening to sue Dave Meltzer if he doesn’t retract the story. He stands by his story and they never mention a lawsuit again.

162) TNA is sued by American Express for not paying their credit on airline bills. Eric Bischoff also sued TNA claiming they did not pay off his contract.

163) It is revealed TNA had another e-mail mishap. This time Dixie Carter accidentally CC’d a e-mail meant for TNA staff to the program director of Destination America, bashing the network as being cheap and run by stupid people.

165) David Bixenspan posts a document dump on TNA’s fails, including documents from the Konnan lawsuit, the infamous e-mail Vince Russo sent Dixie Carter about Jim Cornette, an e-mail Terry Taylor sent Konnan asking him to schedule his kidney dialysis around TNA’s schedule so he doesn’t miss any shows, and an e-mail Ron Killings sent to Terry Taylor decrying the racism in the promotion.

166) Despite pleading poverty anytime they had to pay a bill, TNA made a big money offer attempting to sign Rey Mysterio.

167) Jeff Jarrett appears on one of the last Destination America shows to plug Global Force Wrestling. The network is very angry their airtime was used to promote a rival company and demand TNA edit it from the show. They don’t.

168) It was revealed TNA were considering buying bots in an attempt to get their shows to trend on Twitter.

169) After 11 months, Dixie returns to television to feud with EC3.

170) In bad timing, TNA announced the release of a Best Of Hulk Hogan DVD a day before his racist tapes were revealed in the media.

171) Dave Meltzer reported TNA is two months behind to its paychecks to members of their office and production crew.

172) The Beautiful People reunited in an angle where they were to feud with The Dollhouse. The day after the show airs, Angelina Love announces she is pregnant so therefore taking a hiatus from wrestling.

173) In an attempt to boost awful ticket sales for a North Carolina taping, TNA announces a VIP package where you can have dinner with the wrestlers at the catering table. The wrestlers are not happy.

174) TNA got an extension with Destination America until the end of the year, so ended up showing matches they were saving for the One Night Only PPV. Upon being told they were contractually obligated to hold a PPV for cable providers on January 8th, the promotion had to scramble to fill out a live PPV broadcast with no build.

175) While between networks TNA begins posting 2002 shows to Youtube. One of them is accidentally the show where Don Harris wrestled in an SS shirt. The feedback is so fierce TNA has to set the video to Private.

193) TNA has James Storm seemingly murder Mickie James by pushing her in front of a train. This is because her deal was up so they felt this was a great way to write her off of television because she would probably return to the WWE. James returns to TNA a month later unharmed.

197) The Wrestling Observer reports the entire roster has turned against Dixie Carter due to her constant lying.

Here's a new one



That was on the Twitch version of the show. And like with the 20 minute fishing commercial mistake nobody noticed because nobody is watching Impact in America.

It would have been funny if they started searching for porn.

Or a new job.

I just don't understand the thought process of

A:Doing this talk to the boys and flagrantly disrespecting them in the process in the first place.

B:Making the fucking thing public.

I'm guessing it was a Russo idea to put it on TV. She would give speeches to their roster because she liked to LARP being in charge of a wrestling promotion. My favorite one was one she talked about what a huge mistake AJ Styles made deciding to leave TNA in 2014. Oh, you mean the millionaire multiple time WWE world champion that you asked to take a contract for half of his prior one?

Bischoff and Hogan took the Young Bucks and Okada off of television for Orlando Jordan and The Nasty Boys in 2010. But good idea bringing Bischoff back, Vince.

Also remember their Okada treatment is the reason Impact lost their relationship with New Japan and ROH joined with them. So imagine how much different Impact could be right now if they were working with them for 9 years.

Wrestlecrap inducted the Eric Young vs Danny Bonaduce feud from 2009

I don't remember this. That's how awful TNA was. A 50 year old former child star came in to feud with one of their upper mid-card wrestlers and I don't remember it because they were doing so much awful television. WWE is bad, but if Jaleel White came in to feud with The Miz I would remember.
