Re: TNA: A Change Cometh
Live from ‘The Impact Zone’ in Miami, Florida
Thursday, 9th July 2009
Last week ended in almost a parallel to the iMPACT broadcast the week before- Sting, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, flat on his back thanks to a well constructed attack by the mind of Mick Foley, and the help of his trusted ally, Rhino. Last week also saw many feuds continuing, including that of the newest X-Division stars, and also a suspected break up of the Motor City Machine Guns. But what will happen this Thursday off the impact of last week's show?
A Chance To Fight Back
As mentioned, last week wasn't a particularly good one for Sting, who found himself caught up in the Foley/Rhino controversy and was Gored for a second week running. However, tonight, rumours have been flying backstage that Sting is adamant to gain revenge, with many stating that he may even open the show with saying, or even doing, what is exactly on his mind. Rhino, on the other hand, is also expected to be in action tonight, although what match that will be has not yet been revealed.
With Friends Like These
Last week's match between Motor City Machine Gun members Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, with the winner gaining a spot in the X-Division three way match at Victory Road, ended with Sabin coming out on top. But to do that, he had to cheat to win, and when the bell was rung, Alex Shelley wasn't happy, walking away and leaving Sabin to be obliterated by Christopher Daniels before having an argument with him backstage. This Thursday night, 'The Fallen Angel' has revealed that he will face Sabin in a non-title match, but the real question is- will Alex Shelley be there in Sabin's corner?
Pick A Challenge, Any Challenge
Kurt Angle is a man who will gladly boast about his accomplishments, and after defeating Yuji Nagata in Japan, he has been shouting this from the rooftops! In fact, Angle's confidence has boosted ten-fold, and this Thursday night he has handpicked an X-Division star as his opponent...and he has chosen none other than TNA original, Amazing Red! Why Angle has done this is unclear, but it will be revealed in a sit-down interview which Mike Tenay had with Angle earlier this week, that will be broadcasted exclusively this Thursday!
My Rules, Your Rules...No Rules
With Abyss and Jethro Holiday picking up the win over Raven and Dr. Stevie last week, Threat To Society have become angry and bitter. So angry and bitter in fact that the leader of this psychotic stable, Raven, has challenged Abyss to a match at Victory Road. However, after talks with Mick Foley, Raven has said the stipulations of the match are open- if Abyss defeats Dr. Stevie Thursday night in a one-on-one competition, then the match will be a Monster's Ball. However, if Dr. Stevei gains the win, then the match will be under the mysterious 'Raven's Rules' stipulation. And knowing the twisted mind of Raven, Abyss better hope he tastes victory this coming week.
Continuing The Trend
The shining talents of Pac, Matt Cross, Alex Koslov and Prince Devitt have set the X-Division on fire, and guaranteed more exposure to this once failing division. Tonight, the matches between the four will continue, as Pac, with Matt Cross in his corner, will go head to head with Prince Devitt, whom alongside him will be Alex Koslov. It's going to be an insane match, but who will be the victor?
All this and much, much more come Thursday night!
