The opening pyro goes off and the Impact theme blares over the speakers as Mike Tenay & Taz welcome everybody to another exciting episode of Impact Wrestling, They tease a major announcement from Hulk Hogan later tonight and do a quick run down of Lockdown ending with the fact that we have a new TNA Heavyweight Champion in The Cowboy James Storm! Speaking of the champion after the commentators finish speaking his music hits and out walks the champion onto the stage in his Beer Hunter shirt and jeans with the gold around his waist and a mic in his hand to a HUGE roar from the fans who are happy that the reign of terror that was Bobby Roode's title reign is over. James Storm enters the ring and after his music cuts out he talks about how at Lockdown he got his revenge on Bobby Roode and how he finally won back his title that he was screwed out of many months ago.
At the mention of this we see the former champion Bobby Roode walk out onto the stage in a nice grey suit with a mic in his hand and he storms down the ramp then enters the ring, Getting right in the face of his former tag team partner and the man who beat him to end his historic run at Lockdown, James Storm. Roode is steaming mad to the point he cant even sputter out the words he wants to say pacing back and forth until finally 3 minutes later he yells out "FLUKE!" The fans give Roode a ton of heat for this and Storm just chuckles to himself then Roode looks at the title before giving Storm a look that says he wants his belt back, Storm finally stops chuckling and asks Roode how his jaw is feeling after he superkicked him not once, But twice right in the jaw, Roode gets even more mad at this comment and demands a rematch right here tonight for his title! Storm again chuckles before saying he would love to beat Roode's ass again tonight but then our GM Hulk Hogan walks out onto the stage and tells them both to hold on cause there will be no rematch between the two of them tonight, Instead they will be in a tag team match in tonights main event teaming up with partners of their choosing!
Storm nods his head in approval of this announcement but Roode, Who is still angry about not getting a rematch tonight demands Hogan tell him the exact date of when he will receive his rematch against this drunk redneck piece of crap former tag team partner of his, Which only makes the fans in the impact zone boo him even louder. Hogan thinks for a minute and then informs Roode that at Sacrifice he will get his rematch with Storm! Roode is still annoyed he wont get a rematch tonight but accepts the rematch at Sacrifice as Storm and Roode glare at each other as we head to commercial.
We come back from commercial and the cameras pan all around the impact zone as the fans are still buzzing over the major announcement of Roode vs Storm at Sacrifice and now the cameras go to the ring where the beautiful Christy Hemme is standing holding a mic.
