TNA British Bootcamp Episode 3 review: Hulk Hogan, Sting, Kurt Angle, and Dixie Carter meet the contestants at the TNA Hall of Fame and Bound For Glory
Jan 21, 2013 - 03:48 PM


The following is a review of the third episode of TNA British Bootcamp. The one-hour season finale will air on Tuesday at 10 p.m. UK time (5:00 p.m. ET) on Challenge TV.

By Jason Powell

The opening aired... The four contestants were shown taking part in a photo shoot briefly... The four contestants flew to Phoenix, Arizona for the Bound For Glory pay-per-view. Rockstar Spud's bag broke at the airport. He threw a fit and slammed down his bag while Marty Scurll was shown laughing...

The foursome took part in the TNA fanfest event. They met Christy Hemme. Spud told Hemme that Marty has a picture of her on his wall. "Yeah, kind of embarrassing," Spud said. Funny.

Borash introduced the contestants at the fanfest. They cut brief promos in front of the fans. Marty said he's going to "breathe some much needed life into the X Division." Spud vented that everyone wanted to get pictures with the girls. They showed a fan telling Spud he wanted a photo with the girls. "Here you go, girls, another horny guy," Spud said. Funny.

A woman took a photo with Marty. Spud told her to wash her hands. One of the twins noted that Spud doesn't seem to like it when the attention isn't on him...

The contestants went to the TNA Hall of Fame ceremony for Sting. Marty wanted Hannah to sit next to him at the banquet. She obliged. Kurt Angle was introduced at the ceremony and he joined the contestants at their table. Hulk Hogan was shown saying he wanted them to sit at the table to give them a little rub off of what a main event guy looks like and has to say.
Powell's POV: Hogan was better here than he was in the previous episodes. He was a little more human and less in promo mode.

Angle chatted with the contestants and they all traded TNA trading cards briefly. Angle was shown saying they were all respectful and Spud was pretty funny. He said you have to be able to interact with the crowd and he thinks they all have that ability. Marty spoke about Angle and meeting an icon.

Footage of Sting's induction speech was shown. He said he was honored and thanked the fans for having him all these years. "Who's ready for a few more years?" Dixie asked the crowd. Hogan spoke about how nice it was to get to know Sting the man...

Dixie Carter introduced herself to the contestants. She then introduced Sting and Hulk Hogan. Spud spoke about what a moment it was to meet Hogan, his idol in the business. Hogan wished them all the best. Sting said longevity is the secret. He said he's been going for 27 years and pointed to Hogan, who said, "Oh, please."

After Hogan and Sting left, Dixie spoke with the group. She said she imagines they all want to be up on a stage like that someday. She told them to buckle down and get serious and said she was speaking to Marty and Spud specifically. Marty was shown saying that after seeing the ceremony and knowing what he could achieve, Dixie is right.

Dixie told the contestants she would be seeing a lot more of each other. Marty was shown saying he's going to aim all of his concentration toward winning. Spud put his hand out and had the rest of them join in for a quick cheer... A teaser showed the contestants at the pay-per-view and Carter telling them they would be shown during the pay-per-view... [C]

Powell's POV: Everyone from TNA came off well during their brief appearances. This is the most star power they've had on the show in three episodes thus far.

The foursome were shown taking part in a photo shoot. Spud got hot because it took the twins so long to do their makeup...

Jeremy Borash welcomed the contestants to Bound For Glory and told them Dixie Carter would like to see them in her office. Dixie greeted the group and had them take a seat. She said she wanted them to see what 27 years in the business can achieve by taking them to the Hall of Fame. She said Bound For Glory is the biggest show of their year and said she put them in the format. She said it will be the first time most people see their faces and told them to make the most of their limited time...

The contestants were shown walking through the backstage area and they spoke about how awestruck they were by the production and the overall setup. They were also taken aback by how big the arena was. They walked down the ramp together. Marty said he imagined what it would be like to do that on a pay-per-view. Spud said even though the arena was empty, he could hear the fans chanting his name...

The group took their ringside seats. The pay-per-view opening with Mike Tenay's introduction played. Footage from BFG set to Motley Crue's "Kickstart My Heart" was shown. Their brief pay-per-view appearance was shown. They appeared after Tara was introduced prior to her match. Marty said his phone blew up. Spud said Dixie told them they were going to Nashville...

Powell's POV: The music on the show is great. There's been countless hit songs played during every episode.

Jeremy Borash met the group at the airport in a limo. He told them that Dixie wanted to talk with them in her office. Borash advised them not to give her any false pretense as to who they are. The group entered Dixie's office and shook their hands...

A preview for the next show featured Dixie talking with the group. She scolded Marty for having gum in his mouth. They also teased a wild night on the town with James Storm...
