Re: TNA Wrestling 2009 - A Competent Alternative
5/28/09 Impact Preview:
- In the Four Way Ultimate Sacrifice Match last Sunday, Sting was able to pin Kurt Angle to pick up the win, meaning he is now the new godfather of the Main Event Mafia! Due to the shift of power, will we see any changes within the Mafia? And what will Kurt Angle's reaction be to his demotion?
- For months, TNA Founder Jeff Jarrett and Executive Shareholder/World Heavyweight Champion Mick Foley have not been on the same page, leading to a division of power within the company. With neither effected by the outcome of the Ultimate Sacrifice match, what comes next in the clash between these two?
- Speaking of the World Heavyweight Champion, Foley will be defending his belt against four other men at Slammiversary in the King of the Mountain Match. Qualifying matches are expected to begin this Thursday on Impact, but who will Foley be defending his championship against at Slammiversary?
- After the first ever Knockouts Monster's Ball at Sacrifice, Raven made his return to TNA and helped Dr. Stevie by DDT-ing Abyss into a pile of thumbtacks. But why did Raven come back to TNA, and what can we expect this Thursday from his newly formed group of himself, Dr. Stevie, and Daffney?
- Also at Sacrifice, the British Invasion defeated Beer Money, Inc. in the Finals of the Team 3D Invitational Tag Team Tournament. This Thursday, Team 3D is expected to present the trophies and the check for $100,000 to the British Invasion. But after their post-match altercation at Sacrifice, can we expect more sparks to fly between the two rival tag teams?
All this and much more on Thursday's huge Impact broadcast as we head towards Slammiversary on June 21st!
