Re: TNA My Way
Impact Opening Video Plays
Mike Tenay: Welcome to TNA Impact! live from the Impact Zone at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. We’ve got a huge show for all the TNA fans out there. Not only two we have two King of the Mountain Qualifiers, we also have two title matches tonight.
Don West: Yeah, of course our main event tonight is Mick Foley trying to put himself back in the spotlight by booking himself against Kevin Nash and Alex Shelley in a cage match in a King of the Mountain Qualifier. And also Sting gets a chance to get revenge on AJ Styles for all the terrible deeds he’s done to him.
Tenay: Terrible deeds? What has he done besides the flying forearm on Sting last week what has he done?
West: He cost Sting his title at Sacrifice, did you not watch the match?
(Mick Foley’s music comes on and the Impact Zone! goes insane with cheers, Foley enters the ring with a mic)
Foley: This is past week a lot of people have been criticizing some of my recent actions. Such as bashing the world heavyweight of champion of the company I own a ton of stocks in over the head with a chair just as I book myself in a qualifying match to face him a little over two weeks from now at Slammiversery.
(Foley pauses, the crowd begins to chant: Foley! Foley! Foley!)
Foley: My wife even questioned what I was doing, she asked me why I was booking myself in steel cages matches against a seven foot beast like Kevin Nash and someone who hates me as much as Shelley does, we’re financially set with my investments, past wrestling earnings and book. Why am I putting those young guys ahead of my health she asked.
(Foley pauses and takes a deep breath)
Foley: You know what I told her? You know what I told her? I told that there is a time in every man’s life where he needs to make a choice, does he want to do the smart thing, the thing that is best for you, that will keep your family finically safe, and keeping yourself out of trouble. Or does he want to do the right thing, the thing you know deep down is right!!! And you know what is the right thing? Helping these young guys and defeating the Main Event Mafia especially you Kurt.
(The Main Event Mafia’s music comes on as Kurt Angle, Bobby Lashley, Kevin Nash, and Booker T enter the ring)
Angle: What an inspirational speech it kind of made we want to puke. You have to choose between the smart thing and the right thing? That sounds like something out of a bad Tom Cruise movie, who do you think you’re kidding old man. We all know you’re just a washed coward trying to get one last shot at the spotlight before you get put down. And if Big Kev doesn’t put you down tonight, I’ll make sure I do at Slammiversery.
Foley: See Kurt it’s stuff like that makes me sick and makes we want to take you guys out more, I can’t get out of the spotlight you say Kurt, I can’t take not being there. You made an alliance of former champions who couldn’t’ deal with being spotlight so you could unite and take out the talented up-and-comers.
Angle: I did what I had to keep making a living, those guys are were trying to destroy me and take away my way of making money Mick, you don’t know what I was going.
Foley: So you respond by doing the same to the them, that doesn’t seem fair
(Angle, gets ready to punch Foley but Nash holds him back and takes his mic)
Kevin Nash: Mick, I know you don’t like what were doing but our careers are at risks if we don’t man, but what I don’t get is why’d you even want to come back you’re like what 60? And then against a beast like myself and even Shelley does manage to cost me the match tonight, you know you’d be facing the two biggest talents in your company at King of the Mountain, no way you could beat Kurt or Bobby. Just pull out now and I’ll face Shelley in the cage and you could have one of your young guys face a veterans and see who comes out you know?
Foley: What’s the matter Kevin scared of what I’d do to you in that cage, worried that I’d defeat you? And by the way, Shelley isn’t won of my young guys him and Saban jumped ship awhile a go and I know he wants a piece of me in that cage and I’m going to give it too him just like I’m going to give you what you missed out on at Genesis.
(Booker T says something like keep talking FO!)
Foley: Don’t worry Book, Joe will give you the beatdown you’ve been asking for tonight too don’t worry about that.
Angle: Please Mick I think you need to lay down, because as you can see there’s four of us and one of you so if you keep running your mouth we can take you out easy, so I’m advising you right now to shut up or you won’t be in King of the Mountain, you won’t even make it to that cage tonight.
(“My World” comes on and the crowd goes nuts as Jeff Jarrett has returned and enters the Impact Zone with his guitar.)
Jarrett: Mick is a coward Kurt, he’s the coward and beating up worn down young guys who are just trying to make a name for themselves you did back in the early 2000s after matches when they are already worn out isn’t cowardly? What about locking me in a cage and slamming my ankle in chair after you already beat me at Lockdown and considering do worse had it not been for Sting. That’s not cowardly at all.
Angle: Oh look the King of the Mountain finally got off his crutches and decided to talk to me face to face instead of having Sting save his ass, that’s pretty cowardly.
Jarrett: This isn’t about me Kurt, it’s about you and how and your Mafia is stopping the young guns from getting what they need, a chance and once again you call Mick a coward, yeah at least he has the balls to come out here alone and face all for you, when was the last time you when anywhere with out Big Rocco or Sally Boy, what about without one of your Mafia back-ups, huh, Kurt.
(Kurt throws a big right hand but Jarrett ducks under and Foley shoves Angle to the ground and then pulls out the sock as Kevin Nash grabs Kurt and the exit the ring to the entrance ramp)
Jarrett: You see what I’m talking about Mick, no balls.
(Foley doesn’t have a mic but you can hear him say no kidding an laughing)
Jarrett: And oh Kurt, by the way, I wasn’t happy with what happened at Lockdown so at Slammiversery I will be in my match the King of the Mountain once I win a qualifier next week and coming for you and that belt.
(Angle is on the ramp a with an angery look on his face)
Mike Tenay: What an interesting sequence of events we have just witnessed. Jeff Jarrett made his return have Kurt Angle beat him down at Lockdown, but Angle took a shot at Jarrett but Mick Foley drove Angle and the Mafia out of the ring. Then Jarrett announced he’d be returning to the ring in a King of the Mountain qualifier next week.
Don West: Yeah again, a shocking a coincidence that Jeff Jarrett is also coming when Kurt is in such state after Joe pounded him around the Impact Zone last week and Mick Foley hit him over the head with a chair.
Tenay: Ankle locked him in a cage and beat was planning on ripping his leg off of course he wants to come back and get revenge on Kurt. Before you make another dumb excuse supporting Kurt Angle and the Main Event Mafia, we’re going to send it off to Lauren who’s backstage with the LAX as Homicide prepares for his X Division Title Match tonight against Kaz.
(We’re now backstage with Lauren who is handing out with the LAX)
Lauren: Thanks Mike, I’m hear backstage with Homicide and Hernandez better known as the LAX, Homicide do you have an gained confidence considering that Suicide the man who’s really had your number ever since he’s came to TNA is actually Kaz a man who’s number you guys, the LAX have really dominated in the past?
Homicide: What we did against Super Eric and Kaz over a year ago doesn’t matter does it? No. What matters is what I’m going to do Kaz tonight, I never did get my one-on-one rematch with Kaz after he took my belt at Lockdown I got a stupid, five way elimination match where Kaz didn’t even eliminate me, Sheik did. Tonight, when’s it’s just me and him, that belt is coming back to Brooklyn with me where it belongs.
(Hernandez grabs the mic from Homicide there’s obviously something he wants to stay)
Hernandez: You see Lauren this warning to all the guys in the back, it’s going to be an LAX takeover in TNA, first my boy Homicide is going to get his X Division Title back from Kaz, than you see Kurt Angle, I got this Feast or Fired briefcase here entitling me to chance at your TNA Heavyweight Title and whether you and your wanna-be Mafia likes it or not I’ll take that from you, than Motor City Machine Guns, don’t feel bad we’re coming for you too, completely the LAX takeover of TNA.
Lauren: So you’re saying that you guys want to take all three major TNA belts in the coming monthes?
Hernandez: You heard me right, sweetie, you see the Main Event Mafia claims they’re what people want to see, but I hope people like seeing them getting their ass kicked because we’re putting them and everyone else on notice it’s LAX’s time here in TNA and nobody will stop us!
Homicide: And Kaz, it’s starts with you tonight.
(Eric Young walks backstage and shakes both Homicide and Hernandez’s hands)
Young: Homicide, just wanted you wish you good luck tonight bro
Homicide: Thanks Eric much appreciated
Young: I don’t know what happen to Kaz when was gone but too be honestly I think he needs a beatdown, I’m assuming you’re going to give him that?
Homicide: Trust me on this one Eric, you didn’t need to ask
(Homicide and Eric Young shake hands and a bro hug as we re-enter the Impact Zone!)
Mike Tenay: Mighty big words from the LAX, saying in the coming months Homicide would be X Division Champion, Hernandez would be Heavyweight Champion and they would once again be Tag Team Champions.
Don West: Yeah, awfully big words considering that the very best in each of those divisions is holding the belt right now. LAX is write a check with their mouths their actions will have no chance of cashing.
Tenay: Let’s find if they have a chance of cashing them right now because our first match tonight on Impact tonight is for the TNA X Division Title Kaz going one-on-one with Homicide of the LAX.
(Kaz’s music comes on to a mixed reaction of cheers and boos in the Impact Zone as he walks in)
Ring Announcer: This match is scheduled for one fall and it is for the TNA X Division Title, first entering the Impact Zone from Yucca Valley, Califronia, he stands 5 foot ten inches tall and weights 232 pounds, he is the TNA X Division Champion,. Kaz!
(LAX musuic comes on and they enter the Impact! Zone to a ton of cheers)
Ring Announcer: And his opponent representing the LAX accompanied to the ring by Hernandez, he stands five feet ten inches tall weighting 205 pounds, the challenger Homicide!
TNA X Division Title Match: Kaz vs. Homicide
Right away Homicide goes for Kaz landing a quick series of punches, he throws Kaz across the ring into a turnbuckle and than shoots off the ropes and lands a nice elbow to the face of Kaz. Homicide moves Kaz to the center of the ring and lands a body kick and shoots off the ropes for a head kick that drops Kaz. Homicide covers, 1….2…. Kaz kicks out and Homicide begins to punch Kaz with a few jabs but Kaz grabs his arm and gets him an arm hold with behind his back.

Tenay: Now to “the Monster” Abyss lastest therapy session with Dr. Stevie
(We flip to Dr. Stevie Richards’s office where Abyss is with the doctor)
Dr. Stevie: Chris, do you know why we didn’t have a session last week?
Abyss: Time constraints?? Dr. Stevie, why?
(Stevie raises his voice and begins to yell)
Dr. Stevie: No Chris, not time constaints you moron!!! I was in the hospital recovering for being choke slammed in a pile of tacks. Why was that Abyss????? ?
Abyss: I’m sorry Dr. Stevie, I really am
Dr. Stevie: Sorry doesn’t cut it Chris!
Dr. Stevie gets out a kind of stick and begins to bash Abyss around his office, than he throws his desk chair at Abyss. Abyss is lying on the floor in pain
Dr. Stevie: That is only part of your recovery process. I booked you a special match for this Thursday’s Impact. It’s a weapons match against your old friend “the Blueprint” Matt Morgan.
Abyss: Thank you Dr. Stevie, thank you, I’ll destroy Matt, you can bet on it.
Dr. Stevie: Wait Abyss, I didn’t tell you the full story…
Abyss: What is Dr. Stevie, make it quick I’ve got to prepare for Matt
Dr. Stevie: It’s a weapons handicap
Dr. Stevie: You see Abyss, you’ll be handicapped because Matt is the only one who can use weapons, Not you!
(We return to the Impact Zone where Abyss’ music is playing)

Tenay: What a brutal display from Dr. Stevie and Matt Morgan, I don’t know how we’ll ever forget that but now JB is in the back with Booker T and the Main Event Mafia.
(We now appear backstage with JB who is with Booker T, Kevin Nash, and Kurt Angle)
JB: Kurt Angle, what is your condition after your beat down you received from Samoa Joe last week and the chair shot you got from Mick Foley?
Angle: I’m fine, but you know who won’t be fine if they keep messing with the Main Event Mafia, Mick Foley, if Big Kev doesn’t put him away tonight, which I know he will I’ll be sure to make Slammiversery the end of Foley’s career.
Nash: Have a little faith Kurt, I’ll make tonight the end of Foley’s career don’t worry about it, he won’t make it out of that cage, and then you know maybe we lock him in their and smash a limb like we did to Joe .
JB: Speaking of Samoa Joe, Booker you face Joe in a King of the Mountain qualifier coming next, what’s your plan to stop Joe and his Nation of Violence.
Booker: Look, Joe is just a punkass, I knock his punk ass out this week, I’m going to defeat him and go on the King of the Mountain, aint nobody going to stop me, not Joe, not any of his advisers, not any of the other members of the Frontline. Any you dig that!!!
Angle: That’s what I like to hear and I’ll be right there at ring side with you Book,
Booker: No Kurt, I appriecate but I can take Joe myself, I don’t need you out there. Sorry brotha
Angle: Ok, I’ll respect you’re wishes and stay out, just don’t get yourself killed.
Booker: Oh I won’t plus I got any emergency back-up plan if Joe gets out of control
Angle: What’s that
Booker whispers something into Angle’s ear and Kurt nods his head in agreement
Angle: I like it, way to think ahead.
Mike Tenay: Welcome back to TNA Impact, Don you’re apparently “in” with the Main Event Mafia, do you have any idea what Booker T’s supper secret back-up plan is if and when he gets in trouble with Samoa Joe.
West: Maybe I know, maybe I don’t, either way I wouldn’t tell Joe right now
(Samoa Joe’s music comes on and he enters the ring to a barrage of cheers)
Ring Announcer: This match is scheduled for one fall and it is a King of the Mountain Qualifier, first entering the ring from the Islands of Samoa weighing 280 pounds and standing six foot two inches tall, representing the Nation of Violence and the TNA Frontline, Samoa Joe.

Joe shoots off the ropes and runs into Booker dropping him to the ground, Joe picks Booker up and positions him on the top rope looking like he wants a muscle buster, Booker pounds the top of Joe’s head in order to avoid the Muscle Buster, Booker grabs Joe’s back and rolls him up for a two count, Joe goes for a clothesline and Booker ducks under Joe comes back and Booker kicks him in the head than he positions him for a suplex, Joe knees Booker in the leg to break free and than shoots off the rope for a power slam.

Winner and Advancing to the King of the Mountain Match: Samoa Joe via submission (arm bar)
The ref breaks tries to break up Joe and Booker but Joe won’t let go of Booker T’s arm he’s going to snap it off, Booker T keeps tapping out Joe won’t let go. Joe pulls off than walks out to ringside and grabs a chair from under the ring, he places Booker T’s arm in it, but wait, Scott Steiner is running through the crowd with a led pipe and Joe doesn’t see him as he stomping down Booker T’s arm in the chair. Steiner bashes Joe from behind with the pipe, Joe turns around and Steiner shoves it into his stomach, than hits him over the head with it again, Mick Foley and Rhino run out but Steiner grabs Booker and runs into the crowd. Foley and Rhino check on Joe as he is laid out in the center of the ring.
Don West: What a smart thing to do by Steiner, catch Joe in the act of beating down his partner and friend Booker T he also gave him a taste of his own medicine.
Tenay: You crazy person, just because he’s in the Main Event Mafia and Joe is in the Frontline doesn’t make what he did any better than Joe is doing.
West: This was all self-defense Mike, you need to see Steiner is doing to what he has to protect his livelihood from that monster Samoa Joe.
Tenay: I’ve gotten word that JB is with Scott Steiner.
(We’re now in the hallway near the concession stands in the Impact Zone where Jeremy Borash is with Scott Steiner of the Main Event Mafia)
JB: Scott Steiner, you just beat the most violent man in this company over the head with a lead pipe multiple times, is there anything you want to say.
Steiner: Yes, JB, yes there is. Samoa Joe, maybe that little beatdown, Steiner-style will teach you not beat me with a chair after you already beat me in a violent FCA match, now Joe, I know you’re going to want revenge on me for what I just did, which I understand and guess what you’ll have your chance next week I’m cleared to wrestle again and I will be in a King of the Mountain qualifying match and since you’re already in the KOTM I’m coming for you at Slammiversery.
JB: One more quick thing Scott, how’s Booker doing
Steiner: Do I look like doctor, huh, JB, do I???
JB: Um, well you do have the goatie…
Steiner: Get out of here!!!!!
(We return to the booth)
Mike Tenay: Now it’s time for my sit down interview with the ‘Icon Sting”
(The camera goes to an empty with two chairs in it, Sting sitting in one, Mike Tenay in the other)
Tenay: Sting, you recently were gone for a month and a half from TNA recovering from the leg injuries you suffered from Kurt Angle and the Main Event Mafia at Destination X, what did you do in that time off.
Sting: Those may have been the hardest six weeks of my life, I couldn’t train I could barely do even exercise doing the simplest things, no weight lifting, no running, no anything. Just me laying on my couch, watching Sportscenter and thinking, think about Kurt Angle repeatedly ankle locking me, Kurt Angle putting a chair on my leg and than letting Kevin and Booker jump on it, every day I just replayed the image and thought, geez how’d I get there and I realized, I showed respect and the rest of the Mafia didn’t. I fought the clean fight against Kurt but Kurt fought dirty and won. I lost because I did it the right the way, now I’m going to throw respect out the window and I’m just going to win and get back at the men who took away these two months. The Main Event Mafia.
Tenay: You were almost there two, Scorpion locking Booker T to make him tap against in a huge Front Line vs. Mafia Tag Match on Impact, beating Kevin Nash in a singles match, than you got Kurt Angle at Sacrifice, where did it go wrong?
Sting: Isn’t it obvious where it wrong Mike, it went wrong when AJ Styles got involved with my business than attacked me. I had to do something about it.
Tenay: That was my next question Sting, what happened between you AJ, it looked like he offered you help, what happened?
Sting: What happened? I told him to help by staying out of my way, he just got in the way and than he attacked me after I moved him out of my way he hit so I threw him into the guard rail and the story plays out, I have Kurt Angle on the ropes and he kicks me in the back of the head and boom, Angle drops him on me and then I get pinned, case closed. Than last week, he attacked me at the beginning of the show and cost me my shot at Kurt Angle in the King of the Mountain Match by interfering with my Hardcore rules Match against Rhino.
Tenay: Some could say you provoked AJ into both of those attacks considering how you talked about his family life in the past, how his dad kicked him out of the house and what not? What would you say to those people?
Sting: I would say, that my words got in his head and he once again stuck his head in where it didn’t belong, I didn’t kick him out of the house when he was 16, his dad did I don’t see why he wants to take it out on me and cost me my shot at Kurt Angle.
Tenay: Is there anything you want to say to AJ before you face him latter this evening for his Legend’s Title?
Sting: Yeah, there is you took away my chance at the heavyweight title so now I’m going to take your Legend’s Title away from you, at all costs. You here me AJ!
(We now appear backstage where Lauren is standing with “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles and they are standing my a big TV)
Lauren: Wow, AJ is there anything you have to say about some of the comments Sting just made.
AJ Styles: Of course there is Lauren, you know Sting always has something to say and I think it’s time I make a response. Tonight I’ll put my Legends Title on the line against ‘the Icon’ Sting, and I will come out still Legends Champion, he may be pissed off Kurt Angle took his title and that he won’t be going to Slammiversery, but this, this is personal.
Lauren: AJ is it the personal aspect of it because of what he said about you getting kicked out of the house?
Styles: That was a delicate situation and to be honest I had no other choice, my father was an alcoholic, he was a violent drunk and I had to take my little brother and run just to be safe, I was fearing for my life everytime he had more than one beer, but honestly, it made my tougher, it made the risk taking, leave it all in the ring, hold nothing back, give it 100% person and wrestler that I am today, so I guess it was kind of a blessing in disguise if you think about it.
(Jeff Jarrett walks into the seen)
Styles: Hey Jeff welcome back, leg doing alright?
Jarrett: Yeah the leg is fine AJ, but right now we need to talk.
Styles: What? If it’s about Sting I don’t care if he saved at Lockdown, this is between me and him and I’m going to settle tonight.
Jarrett: AJ, this has nothing to do with Sting, I’m going to let you settle it like grown men tonight in the six-sided ring the way it should be settled, but you unlike Sting in my time off I haven’t just been laying on my coach watching Sportscenter…
Styles: CMT? Comedy Central? Watcha been up to?
Jarrett: No, AJ, though I do love me some Larry the Cable Guy, I’ve made a few acquisitions for TNA in my time off, and one of them is a close friend of yours, he’ll make his in ring return to TNA when he faces Brutes Magnus next week on Impact, I’d tell you who it is but I don’t want to distract you from your match with Sting tonight, so I’ll tell you afterwards.
Styles: Ok, thanks Jeff, don’t worry this won’t take long
(They shake hands and Jarrett wishes AJ good luck)
(‘I am’ is on as we return to the Impact Zone and the crowd is chanting: AJ! AJ! AJ!)
Mike Tenay: Welcome back to Impact on Spike, in the past few weeks Sting and AJ Styles have had some very, very bad blood
(Video plays showing the events of the past few weeks leading up this beef between AJ Styles and Sting, focusing on AJ’s pele kick at Sacrifice, Sting’s attack on AJ after the match, the trash talk at the beginning of the last Impact and AJ’s interference in Sting’s match with Rhino)

Don West: Yeah, but let’s be honest, the punk AJ Styles needed to be put in his place, he’s a talented guy but he didn’t know his place and now that belt is going to a true wrestling legend, the Icon Sting
Tenay: Needed to be put in his place what are you talking about? Sting talked about him getting kicked out of the house, he had it coming.
West: AJ got was coming to him
Tenay: Jeremy Borash is back in Mick Foley’s office
JB: Mick, before I ask you about your match coming up tonight with Kevin Nash and Alex Shelley you came out to stop Scott Steiner’s beat down with a led pipe on Samoa Joe, I think everyone knows why you saved Joe, your well documented relationship with the young guys, but how is Joe doing?
Foley: Joe is fine, just a few bruises from Steiner’s pipe, but you know what my bigger issue is another beat down at the hands of a member of the Main Event Mafia. Scotty, it’s good to know your back and medically cleared to wrestle again, because AJ Styles may have lost his Legend’s Title earlier tonight and I know he’s just aching to get back in the ring, so if he’s medically cleared next week, Scott you’re going to face a really pissed off Phenomenal AJ Styles next week in a King of the Mountain Qualifier in next week’s Impact Main Event.
JB: Now, Mick thanks for that huge announcement about next week’s Impact now you’re match tonight with Kevin Nash and Alex Shelley…
(Jim Cornette comes into the room)
Cornette: Mick, You know you don’t have to do this, look I’ve been talking to the guys in the back and one of your young guns Jay Lethal volunteered more than anyone else to be in the match, he wants face Shelley at all costs, plus you’d be another old guy past his prime in that ring, letting Jay wrestle tonight is giving a chance to a young guy, it makes a bigger statement than you wrestling, please Mick hear me out.
Foley: That was a well thought out plan Cornette, but honestly I have no interest in it what so ever, you honestly expect me to lock Jay Lethal in a cage with Kevin Nash and Alex Shelley that is asking for a Mafia hit you know, look Cornette if I was going to do the smart thing Lethal would’ve been put in this match a week ago after I hit Kurt over the head with a chair, I’m getting in that cage tonight and I will defeat Kevin Nash and Alex Shelley, I’ll apologize on your behalf to Jay Lethal and I’ll find a way to make it up to him but I’m getting in that cage and than I’m to teach Kurt Angle a lesson at Slammiversery!
(Foley storms out of the office)
JB: Mr. Cornette is there anything else you want to say?
Cornette: (sigh) Good luck tonight Mick, that’s all I can say
(We now return inside the Impact Zone)
Mike Tenay: Mick Foley confident that he will win his Impact debut tonight when he faces Kevin Nash and Alex Shelley in the six sides of steel, plus he announced the major main event for next week’s Impact between Scott Steiner of the Main Event Mafia and AJ Styles of the TNA Frontline and it will be a King of the Mountain Qualifier. When we return from the break it’ll be a knockouts triple threat with whoever gets pinned being eliminated from the Knockouts Title chase, that is next!
(All the entterances played over the break and the bell rings right as we return to Impact!)
Knockouts Title Shot Chase Awesome Kong vs. Taylor Wilde vs. Sojourner Bolt
Taylor slides out of the ring as Sojo and Kong stair each other down, Sojo tries to clinch with Kong, but Kong kicks her in the stomach and looks like she’s going for an awesome bomb but Sojo escapes betweem her legs, Taylor slides back into the ring and than goes for a German Suplex, she bridges it, 1… shoulder up. Sojo throws a big right hand at Taylor, Taylor ducks under and rolls up Sojo for a two. Taylor throws Sojo out of the ring than frog splashes her over the top rope. Sojo lays on the ground in pain and Kong grabs her by the hair and throws her into the ring and covers for a two count. Sojo tires to get out of the ring, but Kong grabs her hair than does a bridging German Suplex for a two count and Sojo kicks out than he tries to get out of the ring again and does this time but this time Taylor starts punching her outside of the ring, Sojo throws Taylor into the guard rail and then throws her back into the ring, Kong is gone at this point from the ring, Taylor tries to get up but Sojo DDT’s her, than Sojo climbs the top rope and it looks she’s going to go from the top rope on Taylor, but she stands on top of the turnbuckle bragging and talking shit than Kong comes into the ring before she could hit Taylor. Kong grabs Sojo from the top rope and it’s the IMPLANT BUSTER!!! Kong covers Sojo, 1….2….3.
Winner: Awesome Kong, Sojourner Bolt is eliminated from the chase.
Mike Tenay: Well there you go, Awesome Kong vs. Taylor Wilde in a Top Contender’s Match next week, now we go backstage to JB who outside Jim Cornette’s office.
(JB is outside Jim Cornette’s office where Sheik Abdul-Bashir is yelling at Cornette’s door)
Sheik: Cornette! Cornette! Open the door! Open the Fucking Door Cornette!
Cornette: Wait a minute, I’m busy
Sheik: Cornette, you better not be beating off or doing something retarded in their, open the God Damn Door
Cornette: Fine, what do you want?
Sheik: I want to know why the hell Homicide got the X Division Title shot this week and not me, I eliminated him at Sacrifice, there is no way in hell he should’ve got that title shot over me.
Cornette: Yeah he should’ve, he never got his one-on-one rematch with Kaz who took his belt at Lockdown, he was the right, as every champion does to have a one-on-one rematch with the guy who took his belt it’s every champ’s contract.
Sheik: That doesn’t make up for the fact that I eliminated him in the Five-Way at Sacrifice, I deserve a title shot and I better get it next week, Cornette, you it to me.
Cornette: No, Sheik, you can’t have a shot next week you need to earn it.
Sheik: This is bullshit Cornette, is it because of where I’m from….
(Jeff Jarrett walks into the room)
Jarrett: Jim, I know Homicide is entitled to an singles match re-match with Kaz, but Sheik eliminated him at Sacrifice, you kind of screw him.
Cornette: Jeff, what are you doing…
Jarrett: Making things right, now Sheik to make it up to you I’ve got the ultimate opportunity, I’ve got a special match for you next week, Sheik.
Sheik: It better be a Title Shot against Kaz next week, or no deal.
Jarrett: Oh, sorry I was going to offer a shot against myself in a King of the Mountain Qualifier and if you won you get a Heavyweight Title shot at Slammiversery.
Sheik: Deal, you better be ready Jarrett or else/
(Back to the Impact Zone)
Mike Tenay: There you go, you heard it hear first Jeff Jarrett one-on-one with Sheik Abdul-Bashir next week.
Don West: Leave to Jeff Jarrett to book a match like that against an X Division guy I know Sheik is a great guy but this really low brow from Jeff Jarrett. At least Mick Foley but himself in with some really tough talent, a seven foot monster and the best young star in the game.
Tenay: Lauren is now backstage with the TNA Tag Team Champions, the Motor City Machine Guns.
(We now appear backstage with Lauren Brooks who is standing with the Motor City Machine Guns)
Lauren: Thanks, Mike now I’m hearing with the the TNA Tag Team Champions the Motor City Machine Guns, but obviously the biggest story tonight is Alex Shelley and your match with “the Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley and “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash of the Main Event Mafia in a steel cage match, what’s…..
(Shelley cuts her off)
Shelley: Look screw Nash, I don’t care about him if there for me to pin than he’s going to lose but I want Foley gone and tonight I will end his career and possibly his life if he pisses me off enough in that cage. I’ve been waiting for this for eight months, eight months of jokes about wearing a turkey costume and getting double arm DDT’d by an old man like Mick Foley and tonight in the six sides of steel I get my revenge. The only joke will be the ones made about how Mick Foley went out, losing to not only a tag team Champion but a future World Champion who climbed the ladder and became King of the Mountain in his hometown of Detroit at Slammiversery. Tonight Mick, your career ends in that steel cage, I promise.
Lauren: Now while I have you guys here I wanted to ask you about the challenge Team 3D issued to you last week, they wanted to face you in Detroit but you turned them down, why?
(Chris Saban takes the mic from Shelley and begins to talk)
Saban: You see Lauren, it’s simple really, Alex is going to King of the Mountain and if we expected the challenge than it would me vs. Ray and Devon and honestly I think Ray alones weighs twice as much as me I really, as talented as I am couldn’t beat both of them in a handicap match, so if they want they can have us when ever, just not at Slammiversery because that is night the Guns get their first World Heavyweight Title when Alex Shelley becomes King of the Mountain.
Lauren: Thanks, guys good luck tonight Alex
Shelley: Trust me, I won’t need luck.
(We now go behind the stands where JB is with Kevin Nash and Kurt Angle)
JB: Kevin tonight you face Mick Foley in the six sides of steel but early tonight you tried to talk Foley out of wrestling the match, why?
Nash: I was just trying to talk some sense into a crazy old man, but I guess he wants to learn the hard way what myself and the Main Event Mafia is cable of and I guess that’s fine, all Foley has done is get in the way of the Mafia any way and tonight it ends, because he very well could die in that Cage on my behalf.
JB: Kurt, will you be accompanying Kevin to ringside?
Angle: Of course I will and if Foley pulls any crap tonight I will be there to personally give him the beatdown he has coming to him, Foley this beyond Mafia and Front at this point, it’s personal! Mick, winner or lose tonight, you better hope you get out of that cage otherwise, your career and possibly your life will be over, there will be no Slammiversery for you there will simply be you lying in your hospital bed watching me become the King of the Mountain.
JB: Ok strong words there from the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle, we sent it back in to Mike and Don because the main event is about to begin.
(We enter the Impact Zone with the Motor City Machine Guns music on and tons of boos in the Impact Zone!)
