TNA Monday Night Impact Preview
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 3, 2010


With less than two weeks to go until Sacrifice, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling presents to you the penultimate edition of Monday Night Impact on Spike before Impact moves back to Thursday nights on May 20! Tune in at 8PM ET/7PM CT to see the best professional wrestling Monday nights has to offer!

The Semi-Finals of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender's Tournament take place this week, with 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy facing 'The Samoan Submission Machine' Samoa Joe for the first time ever and 'The Olympic Gold Medallist' Kurt Angle squaring off against TNA's resident loudmouth, Mr. Anderson! The winners of these two matches will meet next Monday night to determine who will challenge 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on May 16th, so Styles will be watching closely!

Desmond Wolfe will be in action, and sources tell us he has something to say to his rival, 'The Whole F'n Show' Rob Van Dam! What could be on Wolfe's mind?

Eric Bischoff put an end to the controversy surrounding the TNA X Division Championship last Monday night on Impact when he vacated the title which was held by both 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels and Kazarian since Lockdown. Both were not happy about it, especially Daniels, but a sole X Division Champion will be determined at Sacrifice when Daniels and Kazarian square off one-on-one! This week, Daniels teams with Brian Kendrick to face Kazarian and Jay Lethal in Tag Team action, but which tandem will prevail?

'The War Machine' Rhino is a man on a mission, and that mission is to get a Falls Count Anywhere Match for the TNA Global Champion 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero at Sacrifice. So far, he has been unsuccessful in proving that he deserves another shot after already losing to Dinero at Destination X but last Monday night, Rhino claimed that this week he will get his match. How will he do it? Will he be successful?

Last week, one half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin, faced one half of the 'Machine Guns' Sacrifice opponents Beer Money, Robert Roode. However, that match ended in a no contest after Eric Young and 'Big Sexy' Kevin Nash interfered and Nash tried to cash in his Feast Or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a Tag Team Title shot for him and a partner anytime, anywhere! However, Sabin and Roode's partners Alex Shelley and James Storm made sure that didn't happen, only for Storm to lay out Shelley with the Last Call afterwards! Shelley and Storm will go one-on-one this week, who will come out on top? And will we see Nash and Young?

The Latin American Exchange reunited for one night only last week to defeat The British Invasion but after the match the rest of the World Elite attacked Hernandez and Homicide, only for 'The Freak' Rob Terry to hit the ring and make the save. Hulk Hogan came out and announced that at Sacrifice, it will be LAX and Rob Terry against The British Invasion and the leader of the World Elite, Matt Morgan, and if the World Elite lose, then they must disband! We will hear from the World Elite this week, and knowing Morgan and his ego he will do all the talking, so what will he have to say?

The TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney will team with two thirds of The Beautiful People, Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky, to face Daffney's Sacrifice opponent Tara, along with Sarita and Taylor Wilde in Six-Woman Tag Team action! Some would say that Daffney and Tara are the 'captains' of the teams, so who will gain momentum heading into May 16th?

To see all of this and more, tune into Spike at 8PM ET/7PM CT to see TNA Monday Night Impact, professional wrestling at its finest!

Confirmed For Impact:
Kurt Angle faces Mr. Anderson
Jeff Hardy takes on Samoa Joe
Desmond Wolfe in action
Brian Kendrick & Christopher Daniels face Jay Lethal & Kazarian
Alex Shelley squares off against James Storm
We hear from the World Elite
Daffney & The Beautiful People face Tara, Sarita & Taylor Wilde

Default Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

Honestly, I'm not going to lie, I don't like the way this championship tournament to branch out, simply because once the final takes place, there's going to be no time for build between Styles and the winner. Hardy/Joe and Angle/Anderson should both be matches to carry the show, at this stage I'm hoping for a Joe/Angle final. A wolfe promo with RVD probably appearing should be another quality segment to. X Division tag team match really could still the fucking show if you give it some good time, oh and Daniels team to win plz. Rhino having to prove himself is kind of bullshit, but I'm pretty excited thinking about the Hardcore shit he'll do on this show. MCMG/Beer Money build has been pretty dull this time around, pretty much being based around a bunch of singles matches, so I'm hoping Nash and Young do something fun. World Elite promo will probably be a bit dodgy in all honesty. I don't really care for the Knockouts match, tbh.

I'm a little worried, the show looks like it's based around to many matches again, and you really need to get some quality promos in to give Sacrifice an adequate build. I'll be reading anyway.

TNA Monday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 3, 2010


Impact begins with the opening credits to the show, as “Change Me” blares out and the camera is introduced to the Impact Zone. The pyro explodes on the stage and the camera pans the audience in the building, most of whom are on their feet and cheering, before cutting to Mike Tenay and Mick Foley who are sat behind the announce table next to the stage as always and are ready to welcome the viewers to this LIVE (~!) broadcast of Monday Night Impact.

Mike Tenay: Tonight, Jeff Hardy faces Samoa Joe for the first time ever and Kurt Angle squares off against Mr. Anderson, in the two semi-finals of the #1 Contender’s Tournament to determine who will challenge ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in just under two weeks at Sacrifice! Hello everybody and welcome to TNA Monday Night Impact, I’m Mike Tenay alongside ‘The Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley and with Sacrifice just thirteen days away the picture is becoming a lot clearer.

Mick Foley: It sure is, Professor, and surprisingly enough I’d be pretty confident if I was AJ Styles right now. After all, AJ has beaten all of tonight’s semi-finalists since the start of the year, all on pay per view! But, that means everybody is going to be stepping up their game to try and make up for their past disappointment when they have tried, and failed, to take the TNA World Heavyweight Championship from Styles.

Mike Tenay: Plus, one half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, Alex Shelley, faces one half of Beer Money who will challenge for the titles at Sacrifice, James Storm, in a return match from last week when their respective tag team partners, Chris Sabin and Robert Roode, squared off.

Mick Foley: As we all know, Mike, that match ended in a no contest after Eric Young and Kevin Nash interfered and they then attempted to use Nash’s Feast Or Fired Briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Tag Team Championship shot anytime, anywhere. However, Shelley and Storm made sure it didn’t happen but after that Storm knocked Shelley out with the Last Call, which leads us to tonight.

Mike Tenay: Also tonight, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels teams with Brian Kendrick to face Daniels’ former co-X Division Champion, Kazarian, and Jay Lethal after Eric Bischoff vacated the title last week and announced that Daniels and Kazarian would face each other at Sacrifice to determine a sole X Division Champion.

Mick Foley: But don’t forget about the Knockouts, Mike, the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney teams with two thirds of the Beautiful People, Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky, to face Daffney’s Sacrifice opponent Tara, as well as Sarita and Taylor Wilde! I can’t wait.

Sure you can’t, Mick. Then, “Menacing” hits to heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe walks out, accompanied by his valet Chelsea and wearing shades and a grey jacket. With his left arm linked with Chelsea’s, Wolfe gives the crowd his two-fingered gesture with his right hand as he and Chelsea walk down the ramp and step into the ring, Chelsea holding down the middle rope for Wolfe. The Englishman enters the ring and gives the crowd the two fingers again before instructing Chelsea to get a microphone for him, which she does and hands to him.

Desmond Wolfe: It’s never been a secret that I don’t like any of you wankers...

Heat for Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: ... but you didn’t exactly do yourselves any favours last week, did ya’? I was robbed by Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam just so they could please all of you, who aren’t worth a bloody thing! For three months, I’ve had to put up with RVD leeching off my popularity, showing up during my matches and telling anybody who’s willing to listen to him, and the numbers are pretty thin, that I’m his ‘rival’.

Desmond removes his shades before continuing to talk.

Desmond Wolfe: So Rob, stop flattering yourself because the only way that somebody could ever be my rival is if they were on my level... so you can immediately cross yourself off the list.

More heat for Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: But nonetheless, Rob, because you’ve been an absolute nuisance to me, I’m going to make sure that your sole purpose of coming to TNA is fulfilled, and the dream you’ve been chasing ever since you stepped into this ring for the first time is accomplished.

What could he be talking about?

Desmond Wolfe: That’s right, Rob, your ears are not deceiving you; you can face yours truly, one-on-one, at Sacrifice.

Mixed reaction from the crowd, some cheering because they are immediately looking forward to the match at Sacrifice if RVD accepts but some booing because Wolfe hyped himself up so much.

Desmond Wolfe: Y’see, I’m not one to make challenges, Rob. Every day, dozens and dozens of wrestlers say they want to face me, whether they’re from TNA or from Japan, Mexico or even my great home country of England.

Heat at the mention of England, but only because that’s where Wolfe comes from... right?

Desmond Wolfe: I turn them all down, but I’m challenging you to a match at Sacrifice, Rob, and I can already see you jumping up and down and screaming like a little girl so I can consider this a done deal. But... don’t think for one second that I’m challenging you to a match because you’re a threat to me, Rob, or because you’re on my level. Because the fact of the matter is, you’re not, you never have, and you never will be, not even in your dreams.

More heat. Yay.

Desmond Wolfe: I want this to happen just so I can dispose of the filth of your name from my immaculate reputation... and I can get rid of you once and for all, so I can move onto bigger and better things which I would be on tonight if I wasn’t unfairly cost my match last week. So Rob, when you’re facing me at Sacrifice I want you to make the most of it because before you know it, it’ll all be over and you’ll never be fortunate enough to be mentioned in the same breath at Desmond Wolfe ever... again.

Wolfe hands the microphone to Chelsea who passes it out of the ring and he then gives her his shades and jacket as she departs the ring. Desmond stands in the corner waiting for his opponent and “Red Remix” blares out to a pop from the crowd as Amazing Red walks out. Red holds up his hands and makes his signature hand gesture for the crowd whilst walking down the ramp and he high-fives some fans before climbing onto the ring apron and stepping into the ring. Red poses for the crowd again before standing opposite Wolfe, showing little fear as he locks eyes with the Englishman.

Match One
Amazing Red vs. Desmond Wolfe
Singles Match


The bell rings and Amazing Red walks out of the corner towards the middle of the ring, preparing to lock up but Desmond Wolfe looks very relaxed. Leaning against the ropes, Wolfe smirks at his smaller opponent Red before walking towards him and they prepare to lock up but Desmond instead kicks him in the mid-section. Wolfe pulls him into a standing headlock, looking like he is expecting an easy ride but Red catches him off guard when he pushes him away into the ropes. Desmond rebounds off the ropes and Red lies down on the mat as Wolfe jumps over him and runs off the ropes again, but this time into a one-leg dropkick to the temple from Red! Wolfe falls to the mat and Red frantically crawls towards him, making an optimistic cover, One! Wolfe kicks out. Red gets back up, as does Wolfe, and Red hits him with a few forearms before running off the ropes. Red runs into Wolfe who lifts him up and goes for a Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker but Red counters it into a Headscissors and Desmond goes through the ropes and out of the ring!

The crowd cheer Red but outside the ring, Wolfe looks shocked, not anticipating the fight that Red has given him so far. As Chelsea consoles her man, Red runs off the ropes and sprints across the ring, flying out of the ring and taking out Wolfe with a Somersault Plancha! The fans in the Impact Zone go wild and chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ as Red and Wolfe lie on the floor before both re-entering the ring under the ropes moments later. Red is the first to his feet and he runs off the ropes, going for a Leg Drop but Wolfe moves out of the way as Red lands in a seated position on the mat. The Englishman quickly gets back up and hits Red with a stiff kick to the sternum which knocks Red down! Wolfe hooks Red’s legs and makes the cover, One! Two! Red kicks out. Wolfe drops Red’s legs and sits up, glancing at the referee Mike Posey before getting up and stomping away ruthlessly at Red’s sternum, taking out his frustrations after Red got the better of him. Wolfe gets Red up and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, running at him and Spearing Red in the ribs. Desmond takes a step back and Spears him again before running to the other side of the ring and jumping up on the second rope, giving the crowd his two-fingered gesture and then running towards Red.

However, Red moves out of the way and Wolfe crashes into the turnbuckles! Desmond turns around and Red climbs to the second rope, hitting Wolfe with ten blows to the head with the crowd counting along before leap-frogging him and climbing to the top rope. Wolfe staggers forward and when he turns around, Red jumps from the top rope and nails Wolfe with the Red Eye! Cover by Red: One! Two! Wolfe gets the shoulder up! Red looks to continue his momentum, getting to his feet and posing for the crowd with his hand gesture before running off the ropes and going for the Red Star Press... but Wolfe gets the knees up! After a few moments, Wolfe gets back up and gets Red up, not wanting to waste any time. Wolfe gets Red in a hammerlock and then plants him with a Single-Arm DDT which puts Desmond in the driving seat in this contest. Wolfe tilts back on the ropes before jumping into the air and planting a knee drop on Red’s forehead, then sitting Red up and shouting in his face, ‘You think you’re better than me?! You’re nothing! I’m Desmond Wolfe, what are you?!’ Wolfe then gets back up and swings his boot towards Red’s head but Red lies back, avoiding it, and he springs back up. Wolfe turns around and Red goes for a kick, Wolfe catching his foot but Red instead nails him with an Enzuigiri!

The ending to this surprisingly even contest comes to an end when Amazing Red is down and Desmond Wolfe, who has regained a firm grasp on the match, gets him up. Wolfe then runs off the ropes and goes for the Jawbreaker Lariat... but Red ducks it, and takes Wolfe down with a Dropkick! A tired Red lies down on the mat next to Wolfe for a few moments before getting back up and slowly walking towards the corner, making his way to the top rope. Red takes a while to find his footing up there and it means Wolfe can capitalize, which he does; Desmond gets back up and pushes his weight down on the ropes which causes Red to lose his balance and he slips, landing in a seated position on the top rope. Wolfe walks towards him and gets Red in position, before hitting Red with the Tower of London! It looks like Desmond has finally killed off the valiant fight of Amazing Red and he makes the cover: One! Two! Three!

Desmond Wolfe def. Amazing Red at 6:22

“Menacing” hits to heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe gets to his feet, looking disgruntled as he pulls away from the referee who tries to raise his hand. Chelsea steps into the ring and hands Wolfe his jacket and shades, and Desmond puts his entrance attire back on before giving the fans his two-fingered gesture and leaving the ring with his valet. Wolfe walks up the ramp, not once looking back at the ring as he is unhappy that Amazing Red gave him a tough time in their match, with Chelsea struggling to catch up with him while Red struggles back to his feet in the ring. The crowd cheer and applaud Red who shows his appreciation with a pose for the fans before he leaves the ring and slowly makes his way up the ramp, high-fiving fans on his way back to the locker room.

Mike Tenay: Desmond Wolfe manages to escape with a slender victory, but boy did Amazing Red give Wolfe a fight tonight!

Mick Foley: On paper it doesn’t sound plausible but Red was on Desmond Wolfe’s level tonight, Professor, and it could have gone either way in that match.

Mike Tenay: And as we heard before the match, Wolfe has challenged Rob Van Dam to a match at Sacrifice on May 16th, and we’re getting word that Jeremy Borash is with Van Dam right now!

The camera then cuts backstage where Jeremy Borash is stood in the locker room next to Rob Van Dam, who is sat down and has his eyes fixed on the television.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here with Rob Van Dam, who has been challenged to a match at Sacrifice, three months in the making, by Desmond Wolfe. Now Rob, the question on everybody’s minds and the question that I’m going to ask you is... do you accept Desmond’s challenge?

Rob Van Dam: JB, the second I saw Desmond challenge me to a match at Sacrifice on that TV screen, I knew what my answer was gonna be. Like you said, three months in the making... three months of me and him trying to prove who’s the better man, who can put their money where their mouth is, but the match still hasn’t happened.

RVD turns to the camera.

Rob Van Dam: Desmond, you didn’t have to sugarcoat it like you did, you didn’t have to make it look like you’re better than me, because the fact is you have nothing to prove that you are. You wanna prove me wrong? Give it your best shot on May 16th... because at Sacrifice you’re damn right you’re facing RVD.

The crowd cheer, ecstatic that they’ll get to see Van Dam and Wolfe finally cross paths at Sacrifice, and RVD gets up and leaves the locker room as we go to the first commercial of the night.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*



Back on Impact, “Angel On My Shoulder” hits and The Beautiful People walk out, even though only two of them are competing in this upcoming match. Stood side-by-side, Lacey Von Erich, Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky pose for the crowd before walking down the ramp with their arms linked and all climbing onto the ring apron, continuing to perform for the fans watching before Madison and Velvet enter the ring and Lacey stands on the outside. Then, “Scream” blares out and the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney makes her way out, walking down the ramp with a scowl on her face and climbing onto the ring apron, performing the splits and then rolling under the ropes into the ring. Then, “Broken” plays and Sarita, Taylor Wilde and Tara all walk out together, immediately running down the ramp and sliding into the ring, picking a fight with their opponents straight away!

Match Two
Daffney, Madison Rayne & Velvet Sky vs. Sarita, Tara & Taylor Wilde
Six-Woman Tag Team Match


As soon as all six women are in the ring, the bell rings for the match to officially get underway, but pandemonium has ensued in the squared circle. Sarita and Taylor Wilde are fighting Madison Rayne and Velvet Sky respectively on one side of the ring, and the Sacrifice opponents Daffney and Tara are doing the same on the other side. The referee Slick Johnson attempts to restore order, getting in between Sarita and Wilde and The Beautiful People and keeping Sarita and Taylor at bay as Rayne and Sky reluctantly climb out onto the ring apron. Sarita and Wilde do the same in the opposite corner and it is now just Daffney and Tara in the ring. Tara hits Daffney with a forearm to the face which sends her staggering backwards into the corner of the ring and she backs away before running towards the TNA Knockouts Champion but is met with a boot to the face. Daffney then comes out of the corner of the ring and runs at Tara, taking her down with a clothesline. She rebounds off the ropes and stops to let out a reverberating scream before going for an elbow drop but Tara moves out of the way as Daffney’s elbow hits the canvas. Tara gets back to her feet and hits Daffney with a Rolling Neck Snap before covering: One! Tw- Kick out from Daffney!

For the next couple of minutes in the match, both trios frequently tag in and out to keep a fresh competitor in the ring and this Six-Woman Tag Team contest comes to an end with Taylor Wilde and Madison Rayne in the ring. Rayne has Wilde in a submission hold with both in a seated position and Rayne is pulling Taylor’s arms back as she drives her two feet into the back of Wilde’s neck. After a few moments, Taylor manages to lie down on the mat, preventing Madison from doing any more to her neck and in the process she slips out of Rayne’s grasps. Madison tries to recover straight away but Wilde takes her down with a drop toe hold and rolls over Rayne’s back before jumping towards the corner of the ring and tagging Tara into the match! Madison gets up, not knowing that Tara is the legal woman, and when Rayne turns around Tara runs towards her, flooring her with a Flying Clothesline! Madison gets back up and runs towards Tara but receives a Scoop Slam followed by a Standing Moonsault! Tara gets back to her feet and gets Rayne up, then pointing to Daffney and Velvet Sky and turning her head to Sarita and Taylor Wilde. Tara says to them “Take ‘em out!” and Sarita and Wilde enter the ring, running towards the opposite corner and knocking Daffney and Velvet off the ring apron! Meanwhile, Tara lifts Rayne up and hits the Widow’s Peak followed by a cover: One! Two! Three!

Sarita, Tara & Taylor Wilde def. Daffney, Madison Rayne & Velvet Sky at 4:30

“Broken” blares out and Tara gets to her feet as she, Sarita and Taylor Wilde all have their hands raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd. The trio all embrace in the middle of the ring before Tara leaves whilst Sarita and Wilde continue to celebrate their victory in the squared circle.

Mike Tenay: Daffney wasn’t pinned by Tara in that Six-Woman Tag Team Match, but the TNA Knockouts Champion did see what could be coming her way on May 16th at Sacrifice when she faces Tara one-on-one with the title on the line!

Mick Foley: We got a brief glimpse of Daffney and Tara facing off at the beginning of the match, but like you said it’s one-on-one at Sacrifice and I have no idea who is going to walk out of Daytona Beach as the TNA Knockouts Champion, Mike.

Mike Tenay: Still to come tonight on Impact, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy faces ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe for the first time ever, and it’s ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle versus Mr. Anderson!

Backstage, Christy Hemme is standing by with the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero.

Christy Hemme: I’m standing with the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero who currently does not have an opponent for Sacrifice on May 16th but we all know that ‘The War Machine’ Rhino wants another shot. Pope, Rhino said last Monday night that this week he will stake his claim for a title shot; are you worried?

D’Angelo Dinero: Christy, Pope is not worried, not one single bit. Rhino, you may claim that you’re gonna do something to make Pope give you a shot at this TNA Global Championship but Pope predicts that promise will go unfulfilled if you have been smart enough to dwell on the past over the last fourteen days. And if you have, you will realize what everybody’s been saying to you, that you simply cannot hang with The Pope.

Dinero removes his shades and smirks at the camera.

D’Angelo Dinero: But onto more important matters, Pope gives his most sincere apology to the Congregation for not being in the ring this week, but Pope is a busy man, hell, Pope’s even got Papa Pope here tonight! And Papa Pope is-

Dinero is cut off by Pat Kenney, who runs up to him looking out of breath.

D’Angelo Dinero: (Frowning) Can Pope help you?

Pat Kenney: (Panting) Pope... come quick... something’s happened! C’mon, c’mon!

Dinero steps away from Christy and gives Kenney a perplexed look, but follows him nonetheless. The camera then cuts elsewhere, with Eric Bischoff, Hulk Hogan and Jeff Jarrett all in Bischoff and Hogan’s office.

Eric Bischoff: Look, Jeff, I’m glad you took my advice and did something about Ken, I really am. But this is serious business tonight, he’s in the #1 Contender’s Tournament, there’s been enough B.S. in the Tournament as it is, what with all of the interferences and what not.

Hulk Hogan: So you need to stay away from the ring when he’s facing Kurt, alright?

Jarrett looks at the ground and rubs his stubbly jaw, thinking about what they have said.

Jeff Jarrett: Alright, guys. I’ll stay away... but just to let you know, whether Anderson wins this tournament or not, I’m not done with him. That tournament was my one chance to get a title opportunity, and he screwed me out of it so if he thinks Jeff Jarrett’s a pushover then he better think again long and hard.

Jarrett then leaves the room, as Bischoff and Hogan both take into account his words before continuing to watch the show. Shame it’s a commercial now.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*



Back on Impact, the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero is with Pat Kenney after Kenney notified Dinero of something during his interview. The camera slowly moves to the left and reveals an ambulance with the back doors open and somebody is on a stretcher inside. Dinero walks towards the ambulance and looks horrified.

D’Angelo Dinero: Dad? What the-

Dinero’s Dad: Some guy attacked me in your locker room...

Dinero holds his head in his hands and looks at his father, as if to say ‘Who?’

Dinero’s Dad: ... It was... that Rhino guy.

As soon as he hears that, Dinero scowls and clenches his fists, momentarily turning away.

D’Angelo Dinero: He wants that Falls Count Anywhere Match at Sacrifice? ... I want it more. I can’t come with you right now but trust me, I’ve got things to do. I’ll come later, I promise.

Dinero pats his father on the shoulder before turning around and walking away, looking close to tears as the ambulance doors are shut. The camera then cuts back to the announce table where Mike Tenay and Mick Foley are sat, both looking shocked.

Mike Tenay: Did I hear what I think I just heard? Rhino attacked D’Angelo Dinero’s father? Rhino’s never been the nicest of people, there’s no doubt about that... but this is is too far, messing with Dinero’s family.

Mick Foley: The fact that Rhino would go to such lengths just to force Dinero to give him a TNA Global Championship match... it’s disturbing, Mike, it sounds too farfetched to be true but it appears that Rhino did that.

Mike Tenay: And you could see how serious the situation was, Mick, Dinero as we know refers to himself in the third person but no such thing when he saw his father being loaded into an ambulance.

Mick Foley: It looks like we will see Dinero versus Rhino in the Falls Count Anywhere Match that Rhino has been asking for at Sacrifice, but Rhino could well have brought out a side of Dinero that we’ve never seen before, Mike.

“Take A Fall” blares out to a mixed reaction and James Storm walks out, without his tag team partner Robert Roode as it appears that his, as well as Alex Shelley’s, partners will not be allowed at ringside for this match. Storm takes a drink from his bottle of beer and raises it in the air as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp and entering the ring. Then, “Motorcity” hits and Alex Shelley walks out to a pop from the crowd. Shelley makes his tag team’s signature hand gesture as he walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and sliding under the ropes into the ring.

Match Three
Alex Shelley vs. James Storm
Singles Match


The bell rings and Alex Shelley and James Storm both jump into the lock-up in the middle of the ring. Almost immediately, Shelley gets Storm in a standing headlock but Storm forces him into the corner of the ring. The referee forces Storm to step back and he reluctantly does but when he runs back towards Shelley, he moves out of the way and James falls into the corner. Alex subsequently takes advantage, stomping away relentlessly at Storm’s mid-section before backing into the opposite corner and running across the ring towards his opponent. ‘The Tennesee Cowboy’ tries to stop Shelley in his tracks with a kick but Alex is one step ahead as he catches his leg and takes Storm down with a Dragon Screw. Shelley gets back up and runs off the ropes but Storm takes him down with a drop toe hold. He quickly turns Alex over and gets him in a headlock, which lasts for a few moments until Shelley struggles to his feet. He pushes Storm away into the ropes and leapfrogs him when James rebounds off the ropes and comes running back. Storm runs off the ropes again and is taken down by an Arm Drag from Shelley. He gets back to his feet and receives another Arm Drag, and when he gets up for a second time Alex hits him with a Dropkick!

Shelley quickly hooks Storm’s legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Right on the count of two, Storm kicks out and throws Alex off him. Both competitors then get back to their feet and Shelley runs at Storm but receives a knee to the gut. James gets him in a front facelock and lifts Shelley in the air, keeping him up there for several moments before finally dropping him on the mat with a Suplex. Storm then makes the cover, One! Two! Shelley gets the shoulder up. Storm briefly glances at the referee Dave Hebner before getting to his feet and sitting Shelley up. James runs off the ropes in front of Alex and nails him with a boot to the sternum, knocking him back down to the canvas on his shoulders. As he stands over Shelley, Storm takes a moment to taunt his opponent, mocking Alex by using his signature hand gesture before dropping to his knees and using that same hand to slap Shelley across the face whilst he still lies on the mat. Storm then gets back up and slightly tilts backwards off the ropes before jumping into the air and hitting the TNA World Tag Team Champion with a knee drop to the forehead.

This contest comes to an end when Alex Shelley has slowly gotten back into the match after it seemed like James Storm’s period of dominance in the match could not be brought to a halt. Both competitors slowly get back to their feet and Shelley begins to dish out several kicks to Storm’s legs, before running off the ropes and going for a Cross Body. However, Storm catches Shelley in mid-air and seems to like where this is going, grinning at the camera before throwing him up and trying to catch him on his shoulders. Alex manages to slip out of his grasps and lands on his feet behind Storm, then rolling him up with a Schoolboy pin! One! Two! Three- Storm kicks out! Shelley was a split-second away from winning the match and now it’s back to a stalemate between the two. Storm crawls across the ring towards the ropes and Shelley struggles to his feet, climbing to the top rope. Still feeling groggy, Shelley waits for Storm to get to his feet and when he does, Shelley jumps from the top rope... LAST CALL! LAST CALL! Storm hits Shelley with the Last Call IN MID-AIR! The crowd are stunned, and Storm falls backwards in exhaustion, laying an arm over Shelley, One! Two! Three!

James Storm def. Alex Shelley at 5:46

“Take A Fall” hits and James Storm gets to his feet, staggering over to the ropes and raising one hand in the air. Storm looks back at Alex Shelley who is still down and motions around his waist that Beer Money will win the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Sacrifice but then “Strut” blares out and for the second week in a row Eric Young and Kevin Nash walk out. Nash is holding his Feast Or Fired Briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Tag Team Championship match any time, anywhere with a partner of his choosing and it looks like he wants to try to cash it in with Young again. Nash and Young begin to walk down the ramp, but Chris Sabin and Robert Roode walk out, both with Steel Chairs! Sabin hits Young in the back with the Chair and Nash turns around into a Chairshot to the skull from Roode which knocks him down! The crowd cheer and Roode and Sabin then enter the ring, as they stand next to their partners Storm and Shelley respectively in opposite corners of the ring, their eyes fixed on each other. Roode then calls for a microphone, which he receives.

Robert Roode: We know what Nash and Young are trying to do... they’re trying to take those TNA World Tag Team Championships but they haven’t, and you have me and James to thank for it.

Mixed reaction from the crowd.

Robert Roode: Don’t think it’s because we like you guys though. The only reason we haven’t let them take your titles is because it was you two who took our TNA World Tag Team Championships at Lockdown and it’s you two who we’re going to take them back from at Sacrifice.

Now, Nash and Young are back up and luckily they haven’t had to compete so they’re still relatively fresh despite the Steel Chair shots. Nash and Young enter the ring behind Roode and Storm with the Chairs in their possessions now, and Nash and Young attack Roode and Storm with the Chairs! Roode and Storm both fall to the mat but before Nash and Young can go after The Motor City Machine Guns, they leave the ring and walk towards the ramp, making their way back to the locker room having avoided a match with Nash and Young before the briefcase could be cashed in.

Mike Tenay: For the second week in a row, Eric Young and Kevin Nash have tried to use Nash’s Feast Or Fired briefcase on the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns but with help from Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin’s Sacrifice opponents Beer Money again, Sabin and Shelley have avoided Nash and Young again.

Mick Foley: How Nash and Young are going to be able to use the TNA World Tag Team Championship opportunity without any interruptance I do not know, Mike, but they have their minds set on becoming Champions and knowing Nash he will do anything to make it happen.

Mike Tenay: The Motor City Machine Guns need to start worrying about Beer Money though, they’re defending the titles against them in less than two weeks at Sacrifice on May 16th!

Mick Foley: And speaking of Sacrifice, Professor, ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles will be defending his TNA World Heavyweight Championship on May 16th against the winner of the #1 Contender’s Tournament and the Semi-Finals will take place tonight!

Backstage, Jeremy Borash is standing with the World Elite, Matt Morgan, Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams, Kiyoshi, Okada and Sheik Abdul Bashir.

Jeremy Borash: This is Jeremy Borash standing with the World Elite, which could disband at Sacrifice if Brutus Magnus, Doug Williams and Matt Morgan lose to the Latin American Exchange and Rob Terry-

Matt Morgan: No! JB, I told you before the interview and I’ll tell you again right now, the World Elite is not going anywhere! We’re stronger than ever, I’m in charge and Homicide is out! It looks like Hernandez has picked up the World Elite’s scraps and he thinks that with Homicide and Rob Terry he’s gonna beat me, Brutus and Doug! Hernandez, there is a reason why those two aren’t in this group and that is because the World Elite is about excellence, something which they, and especially you, don’t have!

Heat for Morgan, who grins at the camera.

Matt Morgan: I do not care about Homicide and Rob Terry, what I want and what I’ve been waiting for ever since Destination X is Hernandez, one-on-one! Until that happens, Hernandez is not going to realize that he is nothing more than a little fish in the big blue sea, and the big blue sea known as TNA Wrestling belongs to the World Elite! Let’s get out of here.

Morgan leads his group out of the picture, as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*



Back on Impact, “Wings Of A Fallen Angel” blares out and Brian Kendrick and Christopher Daniels walk out, with Kendrick quickly striding towards the ring whereas Daniels takes his time, already indicating that these two aren’t entirely on the same page. With Kendrick already in the ring, Daniels looks in a foul mood after the X Division Championship which he held with his rival Kazarian was vacated last week as he saunters down the ramp and waits outside the ring whilst Kendrick is inside. Then, “Kaz” hits to a pop from the crowd and Jay Lethal and Kazarian make their way out, side-by-side as it looks like they’re on the same page unlike their opponents. Lethal and Kazarian walk down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before they climb onto the ring apron and Jay steps into the ring whilst Kazarian climbs to the top rope and poses for the crowd. Kazarian then jumps back down to the mat and stands with Lethal opposite Daniels, who has just entered the ring, and Kendrick.

Match Four
Brian Kendrick & Christopher Daniels vs. Jay Lethal & Kazarian
Tag Team Match


Christopher Daniels and Kazarian both climb out onto the ring apron in opposite corners of the ring as it looks like Brian Kendrick and Jay Lethal will start this tag team match. The crowd immediately get behind Lethal, chanting ‘Let’s go, Lethal!’ and Jay turns to the fans with a smirk on his face, but as soon as he does Kendrick runs across the ring and knocks Lethal down with a blow to the back. Kendrick ruthlessly stomps away at Lethal in the corner and the referee Dave Hebner has his eyes fixed on Kazarian who is the other side of the ropes and wants to help his tag tam partner but can’t. Kendrick gets Lethal to his feet and hits him with some knees to the forehead before Irish whipping him into the ropes. Lethal comes running back and Kendrick ducks down for a back body drop but Lethal counters it into a Sunset Flip. Lying on the floor with a hold of Kendrick’s legs, Lethal tries to pull him down for a cover but Kendrick stays on his feet and frees his legs from Lethal’s grasps. He jumps into the air and goes for a double-foot stomp but Lethal avoids it and slides under the ropes and out of the ring. Jay then climbs onto the ring apron and when Kendrick turns around he is speared in the mid-section.

Kendrick staggers backwards and Lethal jumps onto the ropes, about to springboard off them but Kendrick recovers and pushes Jay off the ropes! Lethal falls back and lands awkwardly on the floor outside the ring as Kendrick looks to continue to build on his offence and leaves the squared circle. He gets Lethal back to his feet and hits him with a few forearms to the head before driving Lethal spine-first into the ring apron! Not wanting to waste any time, Kendrick quickly gets Lethal back in the ring and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring where Christopher Daniels is stood. Kendrick tags Daniels in, and he enters the ring, getting Lethal in a front facelock. Daniels looks like he wants to work with Kendrick for a Double Suplex but Brian is already standing on the ring apron so Daniels hits Lethal with a Suplex of his own. Daniels covers: One! Two! Lethal kicks out. ‘The Fallen Angel’ gets to his feet and gives a questionable look to Kendrick on the ring apron, walking towards him and saying ‘What the hell was that? We’re meant to be a team!’. However, meanwhile Lethal is slowly crawling across the ring, trying to tag Kazarian into the match for the first time and Daniels quickly leaves Kendrick to plant an Elbow Drop into Lethal’s spine, stopping him in his tracks.

The ending to this X Division Tag Team Match comes when Brian Kendrick and Jay Lethal are the legal men in this match, having still not tagged in Kazarian whilst Daniels and Kendrick have been tagging in and out frequently to keep the fresher man in the ring at all times. Both competitors are down on the mat, slowly making their way towards their respective corners of the ring and Kendrick is the first to tag out as Daniels enters the match. He immediately grabs Lethal’s leg, stopping him from tagging out, but Jay makes it to his feet and hits Daniels with an Enzugiri before finally tagging Kazarian into the match! The crowd go wild as Kazarian jumps over the ropes and Daniels gets to his feet, being met with a Clothesline from the uber-fresh Kazarian before tasting a Scoop Slam. Kazarian jogs around the ring, pumping his fists to get the crowd going and meanwhile, Daniels tags the tired Kendrick back into the match against Kendrick’s will! Still hurting, Kendrick enters the ring holding his ribs and shouts at Daniels ‘What’s the matter? You afraid to face Kazarian?’ but Daniels then jumps off the ring apron and walks up the ramp, leaving Kendrick on his own!

As soon as Kendrick turns around, Kazarian sends him into the corner of the ring with a Dropkick. He then lifts Kendrick to the top rope and climbs up there, getting him in position before nailing Kendrick with the Flux Capacitor! Kazarian then eagerly hooks Kendrick’s legs and makes the cover, it has to be over: One! Two! Three!

Jay Lethal & Kazarian def. Brian Kendrick & Christopher Daniels at 6:04

‘Kaz’ blares out to a pop from the crowd and Kazarian, still fresh, gets to his feet to have his hand raised by the referee. A tired Jay Lethal enters the ring and high-fives Kazarian before Lethal has his hand raised by the possible soon-to-be X Division Champion to cheers from the fans. With Brian Kendrick down and out, the victorious duo leave the ring and walk up the ramp, high-fiving some fans on the way back.

Mike Tenay: In less than two weeks at Sacrifice, Christopher Daniels and Kazarian will square off for the vacant TNA X Division Championship and it looks like Kazarian picked up some good momentum going into the title match on May 16th!

Mick Foley: The fact that Daniels wasn’t able to match up to Kazarian and ended up walking out on his partner Brian Kendrick in that match shows that it’s pretty clear who has the advantage right now, Professor.

Mike Tenay: That happens at Sacrifice on May 16th, ladies and gentlemen, but also on that night ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles will defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. We don’t know who it will be against yet, we do know it will be against the winner of the #1 Contender’s Tournament and the Semi-Finals take place tonight! The first of those two is coming up next, as ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy faces ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe for the first time ever!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*



Back on Monday Night Impact, “Nation Of Violence” hits and Samoa Joe walks out with his signature towel over the back of his shoulders, getting a mixed reaction from the crowd. Joe makes a slit-throat gesture and raises one hand up as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp and stepping into the ring. He poses for the crowd again before throwing his towel out of the ring and walking towards the corner, leaning against the ropes with his arms folded as he waits for his opponent to arrive. Then, “Modest” blares out to a big pop and the lights go out as Jeff Hardy makes his way through the curtain. With green lasers shooting off across the Impact Zone, Hardy performs some unorthodox theatrics as he descends down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before sliding under the ropes into the ring. He climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring and poses for the crowd before climbing back down and standing opposite Joe.

Match Five
Jeff Hardy vs. Samoa Joe
#1 Contender’s Tournament Semi-Final


The bell rings and the crowd cheer as Jeff Hardy and Samoa Joe immediately fixate their eyes on each other and both approach the middle of the ring. With the fans cheering ‘Let’s go, Hardy!’ followed by ‘Let’s go, Joe!’ the two competitors have a lengthy stare-down before they lock up. They try to overpower each other but neither succeed, until Joe forcefully pushes Hardy back into the corner of the ring. Jeff looks surprised by Joe’s sudden surge of strength but shakes it off and locks up with him again. Joe forces Hardy into the corner of the ring and then proceeds to choke him until the referee Andrew Thomas gets in between them and as a result Joe is forced to step back. Hardy takes a moment to regain his breath, but Joe almost immediately gets back into the action once the referee is out of the way and runs at Hardy. However, Jeff boots the ‘Samoan Submission Machine’ in the face which sends him back-pedalling into the middle of the ring and Hardy then takes Joe down with a Clothesline! Jeff runs off the ropes and Joe turns over onto his stomach as Hardy jumps over him and runs off the ropes again. Joe gets up and Jeff comes back, only to be taken down by an Arm Drag.

Hardy quickly gets back up and Joe kicks him in the mid-section, hitting him with some elbows to the head before Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. Joe runs at him but Jeff quickly climbs out onto the ring apron and then leans through the ropes, spearing him in the mid-section. Joe staggers backwards and Hardy then re-enters the ring, running at Joe but he gets hit by a Back Body Drop. Joe then runs off the ropes and hits Jeff with a Running Senton before hooking Hardy’s legs and covering him, the first pinfall attempt of the contest: One! Two! Kick out from Hardy. Joe gets up and gets Jeff to his feet, kicking him in the gut and getting him in a front facelock before hitting a Snap Suplex. He then makes another cover, One! Two! Right on the count of two, Hardy gets the shoulder up. Joe looks down at Jeff and shakes his head before getting him up again and pushing him into the corner. Joe walks towards Hardy and begins to hit him with Chops to the chest, which get ‘Wooooo’s from the crowd in honour of Ric Flair before he takes a few steps back, with the advantage in this match firmly in his favour.

Joe runs at Hardy like a freight train, but Jeff moves out of the way and Joe crashes into the turnbuckles. Hardy turns him around and stomps away at his mid-section until Joe is in a seated position with his head resting against the middle turnbuckle. Jeff takes a few steps back before running up and hitting him with the Hardyac Arrest Dropkick! Hardy stays on the mat for a couple of moments to recover before getting to his feet and getting Joe up, bringing him into the center of the ring. ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ gets him in a front face-lock and tries to lift Joe up for a Suplex but can’t. Joe fights out of the situation with some blows to Jeff’s mid-section, before throwing Hardy into the corner, going shoulder-first into the steel ring-post! Joe pulls him back out and sets him up in the corner, bombarding Jeff with blows to the head and chest before backing into the opposite corner and running across the ring, hitting Hardy with a Running Forearm Smash followed by a CCS Enzuigiri! Hardy falls face-first down to the mat and Joe turns him over, covering: One! Two! Jeff gets the shoulder up!

Joe sits up and briefly glances at the referee before getting to his feet and getting Hardy up. Joe immediately gets Jeff in position, and throws Hardy across the ring like a rag doll with an Exploder Suplex! Looking to end this match soon, Joe quickly covers Jeff: One! Two! Hardy gets the shoulder up again! ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ is getting impatient, and he gets to his feet, confronting the referee Andrew Thomas and shouting in his face ‘That was three!’ whilst holding up three fingers, but it’s obviously just frustration setting in for Joe. He gets Hardy to his feet and holds him up, before running off the ropes but Jeff hits Joe with a Spinning Heel Kick out of no-where! The fans cheer as Hardy and Joe lie on the mat side-by-side, with most hoping that Jeff can now get back into the match. After several moments, both competitors get back to their feet and exchange right hands until Joe Irish whips Jeff into the corner of the ring. However, Hardy jumps to the top rope and then nails Joe with the Whisper In The Wind! Jeff lands on top of Joe, and the cover is made! One! Two! Three-NO! Joe kicks out!

This match comes to an end when Samoa Joe gets Jeff Hardy to his feet, and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. Joe walks towards his opponent and performs his slit-throat gesture to the crowd before lifting Hardy to the top rope. He grabs hold of Jeff and gets him in position, lifting him up for the Muscle Buster and walking into the middle of the ring. Joe looks directly at the camera and nods his head, as it seems like the end is imminent, but Hardy escapes from Joe’s grasps and lands on his feet behind him. Joe turns around, and Hardy kicks him in the mid-section, nailing him with the Twist Of Fate! The crowd explode in the Impact Zone and moments later, Jeff slowly climbs to the top rope, connecting with the Swanton Bomb! Hardy manages to lay an arm over Joe, as the cover is made, this must be it: One! Two! Three!

Jeff Hardy def. Samoa Joe at 9:17

“Modest” plays to a pop from the crowd and an exhausted Jeff Hardy gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee. Hardy staggers towards the corner and climbs to the second rope, posing for the crowd and motioning around his waist before climbing back down and doing the same in the opposite corner. Samoa Joe then struggles to his feet and stands face-to-face with Hardy, until Jeff extends his hand to him! The crowd cheer, and Joe looks around the Impact Zone, with some chanting ‘Shake his hand!’, then looking at Jeff... before shaking his head, and leaving the ring! Some boo him, whereas some chant ‘Joe! Joe! Joe!’ and Hardy initially looks disappointed but then continues to celebrate.

Mike Tenay: I’m disappointed in Samoa Joe for not shaking Jeff Hardy’s hand, but it doesn’t change the fact that we just saw one hell of a match!

Mick Foley: I think it exceeded all expectations, Professor, and it was worth the wait to see these two face off for the first time! I hope we see Hardy and Joe mix it up again soon.

Mike Tenay: As a result of that victory, Jeff Hardy advances to the final of the #1 Contender’s Tournament and will face either Kurt Angle or Mr. Anderson, who square off next! But now, Christy Hemme is in the back with the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles! Take it away, Christy.

The camera cuts to the back, where Christy Hemme is standing with AJ Styles.

Christy Hemme: Thanks, Mike, I’m standing with the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles who will defend his title in just under two weeks at Sacrifice against the Winner of the #1 contender’s Tournament, which will be determined next week. Jeff Hardy just advanced to the final after defeating Samoa Joe, and he will face either Kurt Angle or Mr. Anderson who square off next. Your thoughts?

AJ Styles: My thoughts? Christy, I feel great! Like I said last week, I’ve faced Hardy, Joe, Angle and Anderson all this year and I’ve beaten them all. Normally, I would be feeling pressure going into a title defence on pay per view, but this time I’m not. I’m fresh, I’m in the best shape of my career, and whoever faces me at Sacrifice will have had to have faced three of the best guys in TNA to get there. But at Sacrifice, my opponent won’t be facing one of the best... no, no, they’ll be facing the best.

Cheers from the crowd.

AJ Styles: This TNA World Heavyweight Championship right here solidifies that, Christy, it proves that I’m the best in TNA, the #1 professional wrestling company in the world today!

IWC erupts!

AJ Styles: Forget about statistics, because you can’t argue with that, and this title is the most prestigious in this sport today... and I’m holding it. So Jeff, Kurt, Ken, whichever one of you makes it to Sacrifice... you’re gonna realize that the hell you’ve been through was all for nothing.

Pop from the crowd, as Styles walks away.

Mike Tenay: Kurt Angle faces Mr. Anderson in the second #1 Contender’s Tournament Semi-Final on Impact, when we return!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*



Back on Impact, “Feedback” hits and the lights go out in the Impact Zone until a spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there with a smirk on his face. Anderson looks around, before reaching up into the air and receiving his trademark microphone as his music fades out.

Mr. Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen... I weighed in this morning at two-hundred-and-fourty-seven-pounds... OK, I put on one pound, who cares? ... I hail from GREEN - BAY - WIS - CON - SIN... MIISSSSTAAAHHHHH ... ANNNNDDDEEERRSSSOONNN!!! ... ANNNNDDDEEERRSSSOONNN!!!

Anderson lets go of his microphone which reels back up to the ceiling and his music plays again as he walks down the ramp and enters the ring, walking into the corner and waiting for his opponent to arrive. Then, “Gold Metal” blares out to a big pop and the lights go out again. Kurt Angle ascends up to the stage from an elevator and throws his hands in the air as his pyro goes off. Angle then removes his T-shirt and walks down the ramp, throwing his shirt into the crowd and stepping into the ring. He poses for the crowd again before removing his tag from around his neck and putting it in the corner, then standing opposite Anderson.

Match Six
Kurt Angle vs. Mr. Anderson
#1 Contender’s Tournament Semi-Final


The bell rings and Kurt Angle and Mr. Anderson immediately enter the lock-up in the middle of the ring. Angle quickly moves behind Anderson and wraps his hands around his waist but moves back around to the front after avoiding an attempted back elbow from Anderson. Angle gets Anderson in a standing headlock and Anderson pushes him away into the ropes. Angle comes running back but is floored by a shoulder block. Anderson runs off the ropes and Angle rolls over as Anderson jumps over him and rebounds off the ropes again, and Angle then gets to his feet, flooring the loudmouth with a Clothesline. Angle then goes to ground and gets Anderson in another headlock, keeping him flat on the ground, and the referee covers although Kurt probably didn’t intend for a pin, One! Kick out from Anderson, unsurprisingly. They then get back to their feet after Anderson frees himself from the headlock, and Ken wrenches Angle’s arm around, getting him in a wristlock and trying to bend his wrist back as far as it can go. However, Angle breaks out of it with a kick to Anderson’s mid-section and he then sends Anderson back-pedalling into the corner with a stiff Uppercut.

Angle walks towards his opponent in the corner and stomps away at Anderson’s mid-section until he is in a seated position. ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ then presses his boot against his opponent’s throat, keeping the pressure applied until the referee Earl Hebner instructs Angle to stop, which he does. Anderson then slowly gets to his feet, and as soon as he does, Angle runs at him but Anderson boots him in the face and then follows it up with a Back Suplex. Anderson subsequently makes the cover: One! Two! Kick out from Angle. Anderson gets to his feet and jumps into the air, hitting Angle with a Knee Drop. Anderson gets back up again and hits Angle with another Knee Drop, as it becomes apparent that he is looking to wear down his experienced opponent and slow down the pace of the contest. Anderson then gets Angle to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, walking over to him and lifting Kurt up to the top rope. Anderson climbs up there and gets Angle in a front facelock, looking to go for a Superplex... but Angle fights out of it, and pushes Anderson back down to the mat!

Kurt then turns his back to the ring, in position for a Moonsault, but Ken quickly recovers and pushes Angle off the top rope down to the floor on the outside! Many fans nearby look concerned as Angle lies on the concrete floor clutching his shoulder, and after we see a replay of that incident, Anderson leaves the ring and gets Kurt up to his feet. Anderson gets behind Angle and wraps his arms around his waist, before driving Kurt forwards into the steel ring-post! Angle falls to the floor again and Anderson re-enters the ring on the referee’s count of four. Seconds pass, and Kurt is still down, but on the count of eight, he is barely on his feet, and on nine, Angle gets back in the ring. The crowd cheer, relieved that Kurt got back in the ring to continue this match, but Anderson does not share that feeling. With Angle down despite being back in the squared circle, Anderson stomps away at ‘The Wrestling Machine’, targeting the right shoulder which Kurt injured when falling to the floor. He continues to do so, until he gets Angle up and wrenches his arm, pulling Kurt in and hitting him with a Shoulder Block.

Anderson doesn’t let Angle fall to the floor though, as he keeps hold of his arm and pulls him in for another Shoulder Block. Anderson then Irish whips Angle forward into the turnbuckes in the corner and after a few moments runs at him, but Kurt steps out of the way and Anderson crashes into the turnbuckles. With his shoulder still hurt, Angle moves behind Anderson, wraps his arms around his waist, and hits Anderson with a German Suplex! The crowd cheer, with Angle beginning to get back into the match, but he isn’t done, as he holds onto Anderson and gets him up, hitting another German Suplex! The fans anticipate the third consecutive Suplex, and after a few moments, Angle gets Anderson back up once more, and connects a third and final German Suplex! That may have took a lot out of Anderson, but it affected Angle and his injured shoulder too. Kurt lies on the mat next to Anderson holding his shoulder, until he slowly makes the cover: One! Two! NO! Anderson gets the shoulder up! Angle slowly sits up in pain and gets to his feet, eventually making his way to the top rope. Angles goes high-risk and attempts a Frog Splash... but Anderson moves out of the way as Angle crashes into the canvas!

Both competitors lie motionlessly on the canvas next to each other, and they get up at the same time, beginning to trade blows. Angle gains the upper hand in the exchange and runs off the ropes, but Anderson suddenly lifts Angle onto the back of his shoulders and nails him with a Rolling Fireman’s Carry Slam! Out of no where, Anderson now has a clear advantage over Angle, and he slowly covers ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’, could this be it? One! Two! Three-NO! Kick out from Angle a split-second before the three count! The crowd cheer, firmly behind Angle, and Anderson slowly sits up, looking pissed off that he didn’t put Angle away there. He slams his hand against the mat repeatedly in anger before getting to his feet and getting Kurt to his feet. Anderson holds Angle up and says in his face ‘That World Title is mine, you hear me?! You’re not going anywhere near it!’ but out of no where, Angle moves behind Anderson, and nails him with the Angle Slam! There is pandemonium in the Impact Zone as Angle lies next to Anderson on the mat, both exhausted from this match and the crowd, desperate for Kurt to make the cover, chant ‘Angle! Angle! Angle!’ in unison. After several moments, Angle finally covers Anderson: One! Two! Three- NO! ANDERSON GETS THE SHOULDER UP!

This highly-entertaining main event comes to an end when Mr. Anderson is in the corner of the ring and Kurt Angle is in the opposite corner. Angle runs at Anderson but Ken moves out of the way, however Kurt manages to stop himself before crashing into the turnbuckles but when he turns around, Anderson gets Angle in position for the Mic Drop... but Angle breaks out of it, takes Anderson down with a drop toe hold, AND LOCKS ANDERSON IN THE ANKLE LOCK! The fans go wild once again, and Anderson writhes in pain, frantically crawling towards the ropes... but Angle pulls Anderson back into the middle of the ring and goes to ground, wrapping his leg around Anderson’s! There is no where to go for Anderson now, and he still tries to escape for a few more moments, but in the end he calls it quits and taps out!

Kurt Angle def. Mr. Anderson at 10:51

“Gold Metal” hits to a huge pop and Kurt Angle lets go of Mr. Anderson’s ankle, struggling to his feet and having his hand raised in the air by the referee Earl Hebner. The unvictorious Anderson rolls out of the ring, sitting on the floor holding his ankle in pain as Angle climbs to the second rope in the corner and raises one hand in the air, holding his injured shoulder with the other. Kurt then leaves the ring and high-fives several fans as he makes his way up the ramp, but when he reaches the stage, Jeff Hardy walks out! Angle and Hardy, opponents next week to determine who will face AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Sacrifice, have a heated stare-down as they exchange words to close the show.

Mike Tenay: We now know that next Monday night right here on Impact, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy will face ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle in the final of the #1 Contender’s Tournament! Who will challenge ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Sacrifice on May 16th, will it be Angle or Hardy? Find out next week right here on Spike, until then goodnight everybody!

Sorry the show took so long to post, I c0uldn't be bothered to write any matches for a while and this would have been up yesterday if I hadn't lost the Hardy/Joe match which was better than the one in this show. Some may complain about a lack of promos, but I wanted to mix it up a bit. There will be at least one promo on the next show, and leading up to and after Slammiversary there will definitely be some as I have something big planned. Thanks.

TNA Impact 5/3/10 Review

Desmond Wolfe def. Amazing Red at 6:22
I like how Wolfe has been portrayed in this thread. Wolfe is someone who won't let anyone take his spot and, in some ways, he is justified in saying and doing the things he has done so far. Him and RVD should be a great bout as that match should have happened at DX but oh well. Looking forward to that feud. As far as the match, nice that you didn't let Red get completely jobbed out as he was a former X Division champion not too long ago and also kept Wolfe strong.

Sarita, Tara & Taylor Wilde def. Daffney, Madison Rayne & Velvet Sky at 4:30
Eh, a decent match for the Knockouts. Not really into this Tara and Daffney feud as I had planned I would have been but at least you are showcasing the talent that need the time to build up this feud for the upcoming PPV.

James Storm def. Alex Shelley at 5:46
Nice little match that continues to build Beer Money's intentions on regaining their Tag Team belts from the Guns. Also like how Roode, although still questionable to Storm's recent actions, still had to do what he needed to do and that was gain an advantage by helping Storm win. Good buildup with this match.

Jay Lethal & Kazarian def. Brian Kendrick & Christopher Daniels at 6:04
I don't think it goes with saying that I have been a praised fan of Daniels work in the X Division, especially when he was champion in 2005. He has been represented and showcased very well in this thread and this match helps that stand. Great X Division match that gets Lethal and Kendrick some mat time and showcase their skills while building the story between Daniels and Kaz. I am most hyped about this match coming up at Sacrifice.

Jeff Hardy def. Samoa Joe at 9:17
Good match but not a fan of the ending. As much as I understand a potential Hardy and Styles rematch would make "money" for the company, I felt Joe has been on a hot roll and mean streak and could have easily met Angle again to get at AJ again. Plus, this would build up intrigue of doubts on whether Hardy can win the BIG one, which could have culminated to a big title PPV win down the road. Again, nice matchup but the ending I wasn't the most pleased with.

Kurt Angle def. Mr. Anderson at 10:51
Better match, MOTN here. Again, I would have questioned Anderson losing here since he just got out a huge win against Sting at Lockdown and was on a hot roll but then remembered that he has been feuding with Jarrett recently so I understand the roll you were going with here.

Other Thoughts:
The Dinero and Rhino feud has been great. I am a Rhyno fan, or was, and I love to see the true Manbeast doing what he has to do to get Dinero's attention and he did. So keep up the good work on that. This World Elite thing, I think, comes to an end at Sacrifice and it should. Since Eric left or Morgan joined, hasn't been the same World Elite we've come to know. Plus, LAX just reunited and it looks like Terry gets a push so I see them winning the feud ending match at Sacrifice.

Overall, I've been following your show and this was a good show. If it was on TV, I would definitely watch it, no doubt. Maybe you should call TNA up so you can show them how to actually write a good show lol. Anyways, keep up the good work and I'll be following.

TNA Monday Night Impact Preview
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 10, 2010


With just six days to go until Sacrifice, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling is back for the final edition of Monday Night Impact before moving back to Thursdays next week on May 20! We'll still be right here on Spike but starting at 9/8CT so don't forget!

'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy faces 'The Olympic Gold Medallist' Kurt Angle in the final of the #1 Contender's Tournament, with the winner challenging 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavweight Championship this Sunday at Sacrifice! Which TNA stalwart will be victorious and face the Champion in Daytona Beach?

After finding out last week that we will see Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam one-on-one for the first time ever in a match three months in the making at Sacrifice, Van Dam squares off against Jay Lethal! Will RVD send a message to Wolfe, or will the young upstart Lethal be able to cause a huge upset? Tune in to find out!

Jeff Jarrett will address his rival Mr. Anderson! What will the TNA founder say to the loudmouth who eliminated Jarrett in the first round of the #1 Contender's Tournament thanks to a pair of brass knuckles?

Plus, the TNA Global Champion 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero teams with 'Super Mex' Hernandez to face Hernandez's rival and former tag team partner 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan and Dinero's rival Rhino! Hernandez will team with Homicide and Rob Terry to face Morgan and his World Elite allies The British Invasion at Sacrifice where if the World Elite lose they must disband, whereas Dinero defends his title against Rhino in a Falls Count Anywhere Match on Sunday! Which duo will pick up some important momentum going into the pay per view?

Kazarian faces Brian Kendrick as he prepares for his match against 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels at Sacrifice for the vacant TNA X Division Championship! Kazarian and Kendrick were on opposite sides last week when Kazarian and Jay Lethal defeated Kendrick and Daniels after Daniels walked out on him, but what will be the result this week?

The TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns team with Generation Me to face Beer Money, Eric Young and Kevin Nash in Eight-Man Tag Team action! The 'Machine Guns will defend their titles against the former Champions Beer Money this Sunday at Sacrifice but over the past few weeks Nash and Young have tried to use Nash's Feast Or Fired briefcase to win the titles, only to be unsuccessful on both occasions. With their intentions now clear, will they succeed and in the process crown new Tag Team Champions before Beer Money even get the chance?

Also, the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney faces Taylor Wilde six days away from her title defence at Sacrifice against the woman she took it from, but did not pin, last month at Lockdown, Tara!

To see all of this and more, tune into Spike this Monday at 8/7CT on the final Monday Night Impact before we move back to Thursdays!

Confirmed For Impact:
Jeff Hardy faces Kurt Angle in the final of the #1 Contender's Tournament
Rob Van Dam takes on Jay Lethal
Jeff Jarrett addresses Mr. Anderson
D'Angelo Dinero & Hernandez face Matt Morgan & Rhino
Kazarian squares off against Brian Kendrick

TNA Monday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 10, 2010


Impact begins with a video package recapping the events of last week’s show, the focus unsurprisingly being on the TNA World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender’s Tournament. We see highlights of ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy defeating ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe and ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle beating Mr. Anderson, and ends with the stare-down between the two tournament finalists Angle and Hardy on the stage which closed last Monday’s show, setting the stage for tonight.

Then, the opening credits play and “Change Me” blares out as the camera enters the Impact Zone. The pyro explodes on the stage and from the ceiling and the camera pans the crowd, a lot of whom are standing up and cheering, excited to be a part of tonight’s show. The camera then cuts to the announce table to the left hand side of the stage, where ‘The Professor’ Mike Tenay and ‘The Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley are sat and ready to welcome the viewers at home to tonight’s TAPED (~!) broadcast.

Mike Tenay: Tonight, on the final edition of Monday Night Impact before we move back to Thursdays next week, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy faces ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle in the final of the #1 Contender’s Tournament with the winner challenging ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at Sacrifice! Hello everybody, Mike Tenay and Mick Foley here and partner, tonight looks to be one hell of a show!

Mick Foley: Without question, Professor, this #1 Contender’s Tournament has given us some fantastic matches so far and I certainly hope the best is saved until last with the final later tonight. But that’s not all because also tonight, the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero teams with ‘Super Mex’ Hernandez to face ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan and ‘The War Machine’ Rhino in tag team action.

Mike Tenay: That will certainly be interesting to see after Rhino tastelessly attacked Dinero’s father last week on Impact in order to persuade ‘The Pope’ to give him a Falls Count Anywhere Match with the TNA Global Championship on the line this Sunday at Sacrifice. Plus, Rob Van Dam faces Jay Lethal one-on-one tonight with RVD’s Sacrifice opponent, Desmond Wolfe, set to join us on commentary for that and also, the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns team with Generation Me to face Beer Money, Eric Young and Kevin Nash in an Eight-Man Tag Team Match!

Mick Foley: For two weeks now, Nash and Young have tried to cash in Nash’s Feast Or Fired Briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Tag Team Championship match anytime, anywhere but have been stopped from doing so by both The Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money. Could tonight be the night when ‘Big Sexy’ and the former World Elite leader succeed and jeopardize the title match this Sunday?

Mike Tenay: We saw Kazarian and Jay Lethal defeat Brian Kendrick and Kazarian’s opponent on Sunday, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels, last week but tonight Kazarian faces Kendrick one-on-one, and the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney makes her final preparations for her title defence against Tara in six days’ time with a match against Taylor Wilde tonight.

Mick Foley: There’s so much going on in TNA right now, Professor, Sacrifice is going to be great as is Impact’s return to Thursday nights!

Mike Tenay: Don’t forget, ladies and gentlemen, next week TNA Impact moves back to Thursdays at 9/8 CT, just four days after Sacrifice, but we’ll still be right here on Spike as always.

Then, “My World” hits to a pop from the crowd and Jeff Jarrett walks out. Wearing a TNA T-shirt and jeans, Jarrett raises his hands in the air as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans on his way. He then steps into the ring and takes a microphone from SoCal Val, walking around the ring and waiting for the fans’ reaction to die down before speaking.

Jeff Jarrett: I know all of you haven’t seen me come out here outside of a match in a while, but I’m out here for a reason. And that reason... is Mr. Anderson.

Major heat at the mention of Anderson.

Jeff Jarrett: A couple of weeks ago, I faced him in the #1 Contender’s Tournament, and do you know what he did? He stole the victory right from under my nose.

More heat for Anderson.

Jeff Jarrett: Now I know that there are a lot of guys ahead of me in the pecking order right now in TNA, but I’m still more hungry than ever to climb up the ladder and put myself in contention for a title shot. That tournament was my only chance to do it, but Anderson, you took it away and mark my words, it’s gonna come back to bite you in the ass.

Cheers for Jarrett.

Jeff Jarrett: This company is about respect, and pride, and above all these fans...

Cheap pop from the crowd.

Jeff Jarrett: That’s what I built TNA on when I founded it eight years ago, and that passions still lives to this day but there are still some guys who go against what this company represents, and Ken, I’m talking about you over everybody else. I wish you saw the smile on my face when I saw Kurt Angle make you tap out last week, ‘cause I can’t remember the last time I felt so good.

More cheers.

Jeff Jarrett: But Ken, I do know the next time I feel that good, and it’s gonna be this Sunday at Sacrifice ‘cause before I came out here I talked to Hulk Hogan and he told me that I’ve got a match with you on Sunday, Ken.

Big pop from the crowd after that announcement, as Jarrett nods his head.

Jeff Jarrett: I admit, I was foolish enough to under-estimate the lengths you were willing to go to beat me last time, but now I know that you’re nothing more than a no-good, deceptive son of a bitch and mark my words, Ken, I’m gonna make you pay for it at Sacrifice.

The crowd cheer, but then “Feedback” hits and the lights go out in the Impact Zone, until a spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there, getting a lot of heat. He reaches up for his microphone and takes it, as his music stops and the lights come back on.

Mr. Anderson: Aww, boohoo, Mr. Anderson didn’t play by the rules, wawawa... don’t ya’ get it yet, Jeff? I don’t give a crap about the rules! You should probably know this by now too but lemme’ remind ya’, I don’t give a crap about anything you say either!

Heat from the crowd.

Mr. Anderson: Jeffrey, you’re an even bigger moron than I thought you were before if you honestly think that just because you know what I can do that you stand a chance against me on Sunday ‘cause you need to realize that whether I’ve got brass knuckles or anything else or not, I am still better than you, don’t ya’ get it?

Jeff Jarrett: The only thing you’re getting is an ass-kicking at Sacrifice.

Pop from the crowd.

Mr. Anderson: Ooh, I’m scared now, Jeff says he’s gonna kick my ass at Sacrifice! You’re gonna have to pray to God and hope that you’re even gonna be anywhere near my level by Sunday and seeing as you’re, what, sixty or seventy or something and after all those years you’re still a talentless hack, I... I just don’t see that happenin’. But hey, at least you can say you tried, right?

Heat for Anderson.

Jeff Jarrett: You wanna go ahead and make jokes, that’s fine. ‘Cause in the end, it’s your loss ‘cause your sense is too far up your own ass to realize that you’re not the best guy in this company like you say you are and you’re gonna find that out on Sunday.

Mr. Anderson: Not the best guy, huh? Well that’s rich coming from you, Jeffrey, it really is. How about... how about we don’t wait until Sacrifice and we see who’s just talking a load of crap right now? How does that sound? Mommy gonna let you out long enough to do that? Huh?

An angry Jarrett leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, as Anderson waits for him.

Mr. Anderson: Keep comin’, Jeff, keep comin’...

Anderson lets go of his microphone as soon as Jarrett comes face-to-face with him, and Anderson tries to land the first shot, but Jarrett blocks it and begins to hit Anderson with right hands! The crowd cheer and Anderson staggers backwards before falling over as Jarrett now begins to stomp away at him. Jeff takes his legs and motions to the crowd, looking to go for a Figure Four Leg Lock... but Anderson low-blows Jarrett! The crowd boo as Jarrett crouches down in pain and Anderson gets to his feet. He takes his microphone, and as Jarrett gets to his feet, Anderson hits Jarrett in the skull with the microphone! Jarrett falls to the floor and Anderson crouches down, looking over Jarrett as he speaks.

Mr. Anderson: Sacrifice, Jeff... your fate will be sealed, by MIISSSTAAAHHHH ANNNDDDEERRSSOONNNN... ANNNDDDEERRSSOONNNN!!

Anderson gets up and lets go of his microphone as “Feedback” hits and the loudmouthed Anderson leaves whilst Jarrett remains on the floor, perhaps a sign of things to come this Sunday at Sacrifice when Anderson and Jarrett meet one-on-one again...

Mike Tenay: It looks like Jeff Jarrett will meet Mr. Anderson this Sunday at Sacrifice, and at the conclusion of their confrontation moments ago, Anderson gained the upper hand over Jarrett.

Mick Foley: It’s always good to have the advantage going into a match, Mike, I know that from personal experience, but I think it’s still going to be very open at Sacrifice when Anderson and Jarrett meet once again in the ring, despite what Anderson says.

Mike Tenay: Still to come tonight, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy faces ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle in the highly-anticipated final of the #1 Contender’s Tournament with the winner challenging ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in six days’ time at Sacrifice at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. But up next, the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney, who will defend her title against the former Champion Tara on Sunday who she won it from last month at Lockdown in the Three-Way Dance also involving Angelina Love, squares off against Taylor Wilde when we return to Monday Night Impact!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “All American Girl” hits and Taylor Wilde walks out to cheers from the crowd. Wilde poses on the stage before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and sliding under the ropes into the ring. Then, “Scream” blares out and the TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney makes her way out to heat from the crowd with her title strapped around her waist. Scowling, she walks down the ramp and slides into the ring, getting on her knees and letting out a loud scream which startles many in the Impact Zone before getting to her feet and standing opposite Wilde.

Match Two
Daffney vs. Taylor Wilde
Singles Match


The bell rings and Daffney drops her TNA Knockouts Championship, running at Taylor Wilde but Wilde kicks her in the mid-section and unloads on her with some forearms to the head. Taylor Irish whips Daffney into the ropes and takes her down with an Arm Drag, before hitting her with another one when she gets to her feet again. Wilde jumps onto Daffney and makes an optimistic cover, One! Daffney kicks out. Wilde gets back to her feet and runs off the ropes, cartwheeling over Daffney but she is taken down by a leg sweep. Daffney then climbs on top of Taylor and grabs her by the hair, hitting her with blows to the head before getting back to her feet and getting Wilde to her feet. Daffney Irish whips her into the corner of the ring and backs into the opposite corner before running across the ring. Meanwhile, Wilde climbs to the second rope and goes for a kick to the head of Daffney, only for ‘The Queen of Scream’ to catch her legs. Daffney thinks she has retained control of the contest but Wilde manages to spin around in the air and hit Daffney with a Hurricanrana!

The ending to this match comes when Daffney gets Taylor Wilde to her feet and Irish whips her into the ropes. Wilde rebounds off the ropes and floats over the TNA Knockouts Champion, landing on her feet behind her and then hitting Daffney with a Double-Knee Backbreaker! Taylor then makes the cover: One! Two! Three-No! Daffney gets the shoulder up! Wilde eventually gets back to her feet and takes a few moments to recover whilst waiting for Daffney to get up. She gets back up and Wilde climbs to the top rope, going for a Cross Body but Daffney hits Wilde with a Dropkick to the mid-section in mid-air! After a few seconds, Daffney gets back up and gets Wilde to her feet, nailing Taylor with the Daff Knees! That must surely put this match to bed, and Daffney pins Wilde: One! Two! Three!

Daffney def. Taylor Wilde at 4:17

“Scream” blares out and Daffney gets to her feet, immediately leaving the ring instead of having her hand raised by the referee and snatching her TNA Knockouts Championship out of SoCal Val’s hands. She holds it up to heat from the crowd and looks back at Taylor Wilde, who is still down, in the ring before walking up the ramp and disappearing behind the curtain.

Mike Tenay: Daffney will be defending her TNA Knockouts Championship against Tara in six days’ time at Sacrifice and with that victory over Taylor Wilde, ‘The Queen of Scream’ certainly looks ready for Sunday.

Mick Foley: Both Daffney and Tara have a lot of momentum going into Sacrifice, Professor, but there can only be one winner this Sunday. If I had it my way, I’d want to see the two of them keep going after Sacrifice.

Mike Tenay: Hypothetically speaking, if Tara wins this Sunday then I’d think that Daffney would want to take her title straight back so who knows? Maybe your wish will come true, Mick?

Backstage, the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero and Hulk Hogan are stood in the locker room talking to each other.

D’Angelo Dinero: Wait, Pope just wants to make sure he heard this right... you’re not punishing Rhino? With all due respect, Hulk, did you see what he did to Pope’s Dad last week?

Hulk Hogan: I saw what he did, brother, and I’m disgusted by it just as much as you are. But I gave you the choice whether to give Rhino that Falls Count Anywhere Match at Sacrifice or not, you did, and it’s happening. Me and Eric talked to him, we told him if he did anything like this again then he’d be fired, no questions asked.

Dinero nods his head, before replying.

D’Angelo Dinero: And he said...

Hulk Hogan: Nothing, he just walked away. I don’t know what the hell he’s thinking but listen, I don’t want you to do anything extreme tonight, brother, you’re teaming with Hernandez to face him and Matt Morgan and I want you to save up all of that anger you have for Rhino until Sunday, ‘cause it’s all gonna be legal then. But not tonight, or else I’ll tell you exactly the same thing I told Rhino and you’ll be on thin ice.

Dinero initially looks disappointed, but he then looks to have took it on the chin.

D’Angelo Dinero: ... Alright. Pope gets that. But like you said, Hulk, it’s all gonna be legal on Sunday... but you better get that Pope’s gonna do everything he can to Rhino that won’t send him to jail.

Dinero picks up his Global Championship before walking out of the locker room as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “Stampede” blares out to major heat from the crowd and Rhino walks out, throwing his arms into the air with his pyro before storming down the ramp, entering the ring and standing in the corner. Then, “Sleeping Giant” hits and Matt Morgan walks out, hidden under a navy silk robe. Morgan walks to the top of the ramp before throwing his robe off and posing as his pyro goes off, then sauntering down the ramp and stepping into the ring, standing alongside Rhino. “Te Gusta O No!” blares out and Hernandez walks out to cheers from the crowd, punching the air as his pyro explodes before jogging down the ramp and waiting for his partner. “Catholifunk” hits to a big pop and the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero walks out, walking down the ramp and stopping to stretch his arms out as money falls from the ceiling before entering the ring. He removes his attire and carefully passes his title out of the ring, then fixating his eyes on a smirking Rhino.

Match Two
D’Angelo Dinero & Hernandez vs. Matt Morgan & Rhino
Tag Team Match


Rhino climbs out onto the ring apron immediately which appears to disappoint D’Angelo Dinero, wanting to get his hands on Rhino, who does the same in the opposite corner. Hernandez and Matt Morgan start off the match as the bell rings and the two former tag team partners immediately begin to exchange right hands instead of locking up. They go at it for several moments until Hernandez attempts an Irish whip but Morgan counters it as he sends Hernandez into the ropes. He rebounds off the ropes and comes running back, into a Shoulder Block from Morgan which knocks him down to the mat. Morgan runs off the ropes and Hernandez rolls over onto his stomach as ‘The Blueprint’ jumps over him and runs off the ropes again. He comes back and Hernandez springs back to his feet, knocking the big man off his feet with a Clothesline. He begins to unload on Morgan with stomps to the mid-section until getting him up and shoving him into the corner of the ring. Hernandez continues to hit him with stomps to the gut until Morgan sinks down to a seated position and ‘Super Mex’ drives his boot into Matt’s throat until the referee Slick Johnson instructs him to stop.

Hernandez reluctantly stops and gets Morgan to his feet, holding him up and tagging D’Angelo Dinero into the match. Dinero enters the ring and hits the seven-footer with some blows to the mid-section until Hernandez leaves the ring, as Dinero takes over. He grabs Morgan by the head with one hand and with the other arm he hits him with some elbows to the head, then performing some theatrics before going for one more but Morgan rakes Dinero in the eyes before he can complete the sequence. The crowd boo and Dinero puts his hand over his eyes as Morgan takes some time to recover and then Irish whips Dinero into the ropes. ‘The Pope’ comes back and Morgan lifts Dinero up with one hand on his side, looking at the camera and grinning before unceremoniously dropping the TNA Global Champion down on the mat. Morgan then drags Dinero across the ring towards the ring and places him in between the top and middle rope, subsequently running off the ropes and hitting him with a Leapfrog Body Guillotine! Morgan lands on his feet outside the ring and says to the camera ‘That’s why I’m The Blueprint’ before re-entering the squared circle.

The ending of this match comes to an end when D’Angelo Dinero and Matt Morgan are once again the legal men in the match after Hernandez and Rhino were tagged in and fought and Morgan was tagged in, shortly before Dinero. Morgan gets up and waits for ‘The Pope’ to get to his feet, and when he does, Morgan goes for the Carbon Footprint but Dinero ducks it. Morgan turns around, and Dinero nails Morgan with the Dinero Declaration! Dinero then hooks Morgan’s legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Three-NO! Rhino breaks it up! The crowd boo and Dinero then gets to his feet, attacking Rhino and throwing him through the ropes out of the ring! The TNA Global Champion leaves the ring and continues to assault Rhino, stomping away at him until getting him up and going for an Irish whip, but Rhino counters it into an Irish whip of his own and Dinero goes face-first into the steel ring-post! ‘The War Machine’ slowly climbs back onto the ring apron and the referee continues the count, but Dinero re-enters the ring on the count of nine to the relief of the crowd. But, as soon as Dinero gets back up, Morgan is already up and he nails Dinero with the Carbon Footprint! Morgan then covers: One! Two! Three!

Matt Morgan & Rhino def. D’Angelo Dinero & Hernandez at 6:32

“Sleeping Giant” plays and Matt Morgan slowly gets to his feet, raising his hands in the air to heat from the crowd and then leaving the ring, staying out of Hernandez’s way as ‘Super Mex’ enters the ring and checks on Dinero. Morgan walks up the ramp, followed moments later by Rhino who looks at the sight of Dinero on the floor and says ‘Sunday’ before departing.

Mike Tenay: ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan pins D’Angelo Dinero for the victory for his team, but this Sunday at Sacrifice he’ll be fighting for the survival of his group the World Elite alongside the British Invasion against the Latin American Exchange and ‘The Freak’ Rob Terry.

Mick Foley: Plus, ‘The War Machine’ Rhino was on the winning side, and he’s facing D’Angelo Dinero in a Falls Count Anywhere Match for Dinero’s TNA Global Championship at Sacrifice, Professor.

Mike Tenay: Will we crown a new Global Champion? Will the World Elite live or die? Order Sacrifice this Sunday to get all the answers live on pay per view!

TNA SACRIFICE – MAY 16TH – DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA


---

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels is walking down a corridor when Jeremy Borash runs up to him with a microphone.

Jeremy Borash: Christopher Daniels! Your Sacrifice opponent Kazarian is competing against the man you teamed with, and walked out on, last week, Brian Kendrick-

Christopher Daniels: JB, I don’t care about Kazarian, Brian Kendrick, or anybody else right now, all I care about is taking back what should have never left my waist, the TNA X Division Championship, and it happens this Sunday at Sacrifice. Now get the hell out of the way.

Daniels shoves Borash aside and walks away. Back in the Impact Zone, “I Have A Plan” hits and Brian Kendrick walks out, quickly storming down the ramp and entering the ring. Kendrick removes his white jacket, throwing it to the floor outside the ring and standing in the corner. Then, “Kaz” blares out to a pop from the crowd and Kazarian walks out, making his way down the ramp and climbing to the top rope, posing for the crowd before climbing back down and standing opposite Kendrick.

Match Three
Brian Kendrick vs. Kazarian
Singles Match


The bell rings and Brian Kendrick and Kazarian lock up, kicking off this match. Kendrick gets Kazarian in a standing headlock but Kazarian forces him into the corner of the ring and with Brian’s back up against the ropes, the referee Andrew Thomas separates them. As Kazarian and Kendrick stare each other down with the official in between, Kendrick slaps Kazarian across the face! The crowd boo and Kendrick laughs at Kazarian, but with the referee out of the way Kazarian runs at Kendrick and Brian tries to kick him but Kazarian catches his foot and then takes him down with a leg sweep. He goes to ground and climbs on top of his opponent, pummeling Kendrick with blows to the head until Kendrick manages to turn over and both competitors get back to their feet. Brian runs at Kazarian but is taken down by an arm drag, followed by another one, and Kazarian then hits Kendrick with a Dropkick which connects perfectly to Brian’s jaw. Kazarian quickly hooks Kendrick’s legs and makes the cover: One! Two-Kendrick kicks out. Kazarian gets Kendrick back up and Irish whips him into the ropes, ducking down in preparation for a Back Body Drop.

Kendrick Sunset Flips over him and lands on his feet. Kazarian turns around and Kendrick hits him with a forearm to the face which sends him staggering backwards into the corner of the ring. Kendrick walks towards him and climbs to the second rope on top of him, hitting Kazarian with some punches whilst a minority of the crowd count along. After the ninth punch, Kendrick starts to get cocky and he outstretches his arms in a pose but Kazarian lifts him up for a Powerbomb... only for Kendrick to counter it into a Hurricanrana! Kendrick lands in a seated position on top of Kazarian and the cover is made: One! Two! Kazarian kicks out. Brian quickly gets to his feet and begins to stomp away at Kazarian, turning him over onto his side in the process and then lashing out with kicks to the back. He forces Kazarian under the ropes and out of the ring as Kazarian falls to the ground and in the ring, Kendrick rebounds off the ropes and runs across the ring. Kendrick goes for a Baseball Slide but misses and he lands on his feet outside the squared circle but then tastes a Clothesline from Kazarian!

Kazarian then re-enters the ring and looks around the Impact Zone, with the fans cheering and wanting him to go high-risk. He waits for Kendrick to get to his feet on the outside before rebounding off the ropes and sprinting across the ring, going over the ropes and hitting Kendrick with a Somersault Plancha! The crowd go wild and chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ as Kazarian and Kendrick both lie next to each other outside the ring and the referee begins the count. On the count of five, they get back up to their feet and on seven, they re-enter the ring. Kazarian and Kendrick get back to their feet and Kazarian lifts Kendrick up, planting him with a Scoop Slam. He then climbs out onto the ring apron, and jumps over the ropes, nailing Kendrick with a Slingshot Leg Drop! The cover is then made by Kazarian, could this be it? One! Two! Kendrick gets the shoulder up on two-and-a-half! Kazarian almost won the match there and he gets to his feet with assistance from the ropes. He waits for Kendrick to get to his feet and when he does, Kazarian gets him in position for the Wave Of The Future... but Kendrick fights out of it. He then grabs Kazarian and throws him into the corner, as he goes shoulder-first into the steel ring-post!

The ending of this match comes when Kazarian hits Brian Kendrick with some knife-edge Chops to the chest which get ‘Woooo’s from the crowd, and he then runs off the ropes, but Kendrick hits him with a Single-Leg Dropkick! Moments later, Kendrick gets back to his feet and gets Kazarian up, wrapping his arm around his neck and running towards the corner. Kendrick looks to go for the Sliced Bread #2, but when he’s on the top rope Kazarian slips out of his grasps and then causes Kendrick to lose his balance. Kazarian climbs to the top rope and gets Kendrick in position, before nailing him with the Flux Capacitor! The crowd cheer and Kendrick moves away from Kazarian upon impact from hitting the mat, but Kazarian crawls across the ring and hooks Brian’s legs as the cover is made: One! Two! Three!

Kazarian def. Brian Kendrick at 6:10

“Kaz” hits and Kazarian gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd. Kazarian then climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring and motions around his waist, saying ‘You’re looking at your new X Division Champion’ before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, high-fiving some fans on his way back to the locker room.

Mike Tenay: Kazarian picks up the victory against Brian Kendrick, and Kazarian looks more than ready to face ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels for the vacant TNA X Division Championship this Sunday at Sacrifice.

Mick Foley: If the winner of the X Division Championship match this Sunday was to be determined on momentum going into it then I think Kazarian would win easily, but Daniels is one of the greatest wrestlers not just in TNA but in this sport as a whole and he is capable of anything, Mike.

Mike Tenay: Let’s now send you to the back with Christy Hemme, who is standing with ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle. Take it away, Christy.

The camera cuts backstage, where Christy Hemme is standing with Kurt Angle.

Christy Hemme: Thanks Mike, I’m here with ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle, who later tonight will face ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy in the final of the #1 Contender’s Tournament to determine who challenges ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at Sacrifice in Daytona Beach, Florida. What are your thoughts going into this match?

Kurt Angle: Christy, I respect Jeff Hardy. I respect him a lot. I’ve known him for over ten years now, and I’ve seen him rise up the ranks in this business. But I don’t respect Jeff enough to let him come out of our match in one piece if I have to break him in half, because I’ll do it in a split-second.

Mixed reaction from the crowd.

Kurt Angle: That’s how much the TNA World Heavyweight Championship means to me,I’m sure it means that much to Jeff Hardy and I know it means that much to AJ Styles. If you don’t strive to be the World Champion, to be the very best then you shouldn’t be here, you can pack your backs and go home because like AJ said last week, it’s the most prestigious championship in professional wrestling... AJ’s got it, I’ve had it in the past... but Jeff Hardy’s never had it. And Jeff, you’re gonna have to find a miracle to stand a chance of winning it on Sunday because if I’m on the top of my game then you haven’t got a chance in hell.

Cheers from the crowd.

Kurt Angle: ... and you can bet your ass I’m on the top of my game tonight. Oh, it’s real... it’s damn real!

Angle walks out of the shot to more cheers from the crowd as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, Jay Lethal is sat in the locker room talking to the cameraman but is not looking directly at the camera.

Jay Lethal: Tonight, I’ve got a match against Rob Van Dam... wow. I still can’t believe it, it feels like just yesterday when I was sat at home in Elizabeth, New Jersey watching the guy and idolizing him on TV, and now I’m facing him. It’s gonna be one of the biggest matches of my career without a doubt, I’ve faced Kurt Angle before, I’ve faced Sting before but I’ve always wanted to be in the ring with RVD and I’m gonna make the most of my opportunity tonight.

Lethal takes a drink of water as the camera cuts back into the Impact Zone and “Take A Fall” hits as Beer Money walk out onto the stage. James Storm and Robert Roode both pose as their pyro goes off before they walk down the ramp with Storm rushing to the ring while Roode, who gives James a questionable look for leaving his side, takes his time. They enter the ring and “Strut” then blares out to heat from the crowd, marking the entrance of Eric Young and Kevin Nash. The duo walk down the ramp, Nash holding his Feast Or Fired briefcase, and stand outside the ring instead of entering, not wanting to associate with their partners Beer Money. Then, “Motorcity” hits to a big pop and the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns, along with Generation Me, walk out. Jeremy and Max Buck jog down the ramp whilst Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin pose before making their way to the ring, high-fiving some fans along the way. The quartet simultaneously enter the ring and all pose for the crowd before settling in the corner opposite Beer Money with Nash and Young still outside the ring.

Match Four
Beer Money, Eric Young & Kevin Nash vs. Generation Me & The Motor City Machine Guns
Eight-Man Tag Team Match


Alex Shelley, Jeremy and Max Buck all climb out onto the ring apron as Chris Sabin looks set to start off for them but meanwhile, Eric Young and Kevin Nash still stand on the outside and Robert Roode enters the ring with James Storm standing on the ring apron. Roode and Sabin walk towards the centre of the ring and look set to lock up, but Roode instead hits Sabin with a kick to the mid-section. He wrenches Chris’ arm and pulls him into a headlock takedown, pinning him to the mat but the cover is not made as Sabin manages to keep his left shoulder off the ground. Sabin manages to get to his feet and he pushes Roode away into the ropes. Roode rebounds off the ropes and runs at Sabin but Chris leapfrogs over him and when Robert turns around, Sabin hits him with a Spinning Heel Kick. He then makes the first cover attempt of this Eight-Man Tag Team Match, One! Two! Right on the count of two, Roode gets the shoulder up. Sabin gets him up and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring where his tag team partners are standing. He walks over there and tags his fellow TNA World Tag Team Champion Alex Shelley into the match, as Shelley Irish whips Roode into a Dropkick to the legs from Sabin.

Shelley runs off the ropes and gets Roode in an Inverted STF and Sabin rebounds off the opposite ropes, hitting Roode with a Dropkick to the face! Alex quickly turns Roode over and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! James Storm enters the ring and breaks up the pinfall with a stomp to Shelley’s back. Alex then gets back up and tries to get revenge on Storm, but ‘The Tennesee Cowboy’ quickly climbs out of the ring with Eric Young and Kevin Nash now standing elswhere on the outside. Shelley has a long-distance staredown with Storm before turning around, but Roode is now on his feet and he kicks Alex in the mid-section, applying a front facelock and hitting Shelley with a Snap Suplex. With Storm standing on the ring apron, Roode tags him into the match and Roode grabs Shelley’s legs, catapulting him backwards into a DDT from Storm! James then makes the cover: One! Two! Kick out from Shelley. Storm gets him back up and runs off the ropes, hitting Shelley with a High Knee to the face as he falls to the mat again. Getting cocky, Storm stands over Shelley and mocks them by making The Motor City Machine Guns’ signature hand gesture which gets a lot of heat from the crowd.

Storm then takes Shelley’s legs and tries to apply a submission hold, but Alex won’t allow it and he kicks Storm away into the corner. Shelley gets back to his feet as Storm recovers, and Shelley runs at him into a Scoop Slam lift from Storm but Alex reverses it into a Tilt-a-Whirl Headscissors Takedown! The crowd cheer and both competitors begin to make their way towards their respective corners, and Storm tags Robert Roode back into the match but Shelley tags in Jeremy Buck for the first time! Both competitors charge towards each other and Roode goes for a Clothesline but Jeremy ducks it and hits Roode with a Dropkick! Buck springs back up and runs towards the corner, knocking Storm off the ring apron and with Roode back up Jeremy runs at him, hitting a Running Cross Body! The cover is made: One! Two! Roode kicks out. Jeremy gets him back to his feet and Irish whips Roode into the corner of the ring, tagging his brother Max in. Max wrenches Roode’s arm and Jeremy climbs to the top rope, jumping off and hitting Roode with a Double-Foot Stomp to Roode’s arm!

This Eight-Man Tag Team Match comes to an end when Jeremy Buck and James Storm are the legal men in the match and Storm waits for Jeremy to get up. When he is up, Storm goes for the Last Call... but Jeremy ducks it and hits him with an Enzuigiri! Buck then gets Storm up, and Kevin Nash quietly climbs onto the ring apron, making the blind tag. Jeremy takes Storm towards the opposite corner and tags his brother Max in. Jeremy climbs to the top rope as Max lifts Storm onto his shoulders and hits him with a Rolling Fireman’s Carry Slam, followed by the 450 Splash by Jeremy and then a Standing Moonsault from Max, completing the Bang For Your Buck! Max then makes the cover, but the referee Slick Johnson tells Buck that Storm isn’t the legal man. Max says ‘Then who is?’ just as Nash enters the ring and when Buck turns around, Nash kicks him in the mid-section, lifts him up, and nails Max with the Jack-Knife Powerbomb! Nash then makes the cover, One! Two! Three!

Beer Money, Eric Young & Kevin Nash def. Generation Me & The Motor City Machine Guns at 7:04

“Strut” hits and Kevin Nash gets to his feet, immediately leaving the ring with Eric Young in tow and taking his Feast Or Fired briefcase. With the briefcase in his hands, he looks at it before looking at the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns who are on their feet and looking directly at him and Young. Nash and Young have a discussion before ‘Big Sexy’ shakes his head and demands a microphone, which he is given as his music fades out.

Kevin Nash: Y’know what? I’m sick and tired of chasing you around, ‘Machine Guns. It’s clear that me and Eric have tried to cash in this briefcase by beating you after you’ve already had a match, but every time it’s failed.

Cheers from the crowd for MCMG.

Kevin Nash: So I’ll tell you what we’re gonna do. Me and Eric are gonna add ourselves to the TNA World Tag Team Championship match this Sunday at Sacrifice.

Mixed reaction from the crowd.

Kevin Nash: Because you all might think the only way we can use this briefcase to win the titles is by a sneak attack but me and Eric are two of the best damn guys in this company, and this Sunday we’re crashing the party and taking those TNA World Tag Team Championships.

“Strut” plays and Nash drops the microphone, leaving with Young as Generation Me leave the ring and Beer Money and The Motor City Machine Guns approach the centre of the squared circle. Holding their titles, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin stare down James Storm and Robert Roode with both teams knowing that their chances of winning at Sacrifice have been slimmed by Nash and Young’s inclusion in the match.

Mike Tenay: At the start of the night we were anticipating a re-match between The Motor City Machine Guns and Beer Money for the TNA World Tag Team Championships this Sunday at Sacrifice, but now we know that thanks to Kevin Nash’s Feast Or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a Tag Team Title shot, him and Eric Young are now part of it, making it a Three-Way Tag Team Match for the gold in Daytona Beach!

Mick Foley: I have to admit I’m disappointed, Professor, I was looking forward to seeing the ‘Machine Guns and Beer Money go at it again at Sacrifice but hey, what can you do? Nash has every right to put himself and Eric Young in the match and I can’t argue with that, they were unsuccessful in using it after Sabin and Shelley’s matches so they’re guaranteeing a match with The Motor City Machine Guns on Sunday but Beer Money will be in there too.

Mike Tenay: Coming up next, ladies and gentlemen, ‘The Whole F’n Show’ Rob Van Dam faces Jay Lethal one-on-one when we return!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “LethalX” blares out to a pop from the crowd and Jay Lethal walks out onto the stage, kneeling down and pointing to the TNA logo on the stage before walking down the ramp. Lethal high-fives some fans and slides under the ropes into the ring, walking into the corner as “Whole F’n Show” hits to a big pop and Rob Van Dam walks out. He performs his signature pose as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp and stepping into the ring. RVD climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses again before climbing back down and standing opposite Lethal. Before the match can begin though, “Menacing” blares out to heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe walks out alongside Chelsea. Wolfe sees Van Dam and smirks before walking with Chelsea over to the announce table and sitting in between Mike Tenay and Taz as Chelsea stands behind Wolfe with her arm on his shoulder.

Mike Tenay: Welcome back to TNA Monday Night Impact everybody, and it appears that we are being joined by Desmond Wolfe to watch Wolfe’s opponent this Sunday at Sacrifice, Rob Van Dam, face Jay Lethal.

Desmond Wolfe: I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I actually think Robby is gonna win this. I don’t know who the bloody hell Jay Lethal is, I don’t care about him and I never will, but the same can be said for that wanker RVD. And after this Sunday at Sacrifice, after I beat Van Dam and humiliate him, nobody is going to care about him.

Mick Foley: I wouldn’t go as far as saying that, Desmond.

Desmond Wolfe: Sorry mate, haven’t got any spare change on me.

Match Five
Jay Lethal vs. Rob Van Dam
Singles Match


The bell rings and Jay Lethal and Rob Van Dam approach the centre of the ring, graciously shaking hands prior to locking up. Lethal quickly moves behind Van Dam and wraps his arms around his waist, lifting him off his feet and spinning him round before pinning him to the ground on his stomach. Jay then turns him over and targets RVD’s arm, getting to his feet holding Rob’s arm and hitting a Leg Drop on it. Lethal gets Van Dam in an armbar but when Rob counters it into a Schoolboy pin, before the referee Mike Posey can start the count Jay rolls backwards and gets to his feet, as does RVD. Rob gives Lethal a respectful nod of the head before they lock up again and Jay gets him in a standing headlock. Van Dam lifts Lethal off his feet and attempts a Back Suplex, but Jay flips back and lands on his feet behind Rob, taking him down with a leg sweep and attempting a cover but Van Dam immediately breaks out of it. The two competitors get back up again and RVD, having yet to build any kind of offence in the match, goes for a heel kick but Lethal ducks it and then begins to unload on ‘The Whole F’n Show’ with right hands.

Jay rebounds off the ropes behind him and runs at Van Dam, but RVD floors Lethal with a Clothesline. Van Dam runs off the ropes and Jay turns over onto his stomach, as Rob jumps over him and rebounds off the ropes again. Lethal then springs to his feet and takes Van Dam down with a Hip Toss, followed by a cartwheel and a Dropkick to the face of RVD! Lethal then makes the cover, One! Kick out from Van Dam. Jay sits up and turns Rob over onto his stomach to apply an Armbar again. RVD manages to reach the ropes behind him with his feet and Jay immediately lets go, getting back to his feet and patiently waiting for Van Dam to get up too. Rob gets up and Lethal hits him with a European Uppercut which sends RVD into the corner. Jay walks towards him and hits him with some more right hands before lifting him to the top rope and climbing up there himself. Lethal wraps his legs around Van Dam’s head and looks to go for a Hurricanrana from the top rope... but RVD pushes Jay back down to the mat. Lethal lands on his feet and Van Dam then jumps from the top rope, hitting Jay with a Cross Body!

RVD makes the pin straight away, One! Two! Right on the count of two, Lethal kicks out. Van Dam gets Jay to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, running at him and hitting Lethal with a turnbuckle thrust to the mid-section, followed by another one. Van Dam then moves backwards with a back handspring before running at his opponent again and jumping onto him, hitting Lethal with a Monkey Flip. Another cover attempt is then made by RVD, One! Two! Kick out from Lethal. Van Dam gets back up and runs off the ropes, cartwheeling over Jay and going for a Standing Moonsault only for Lethal to move out of the way but RVD, one step ahead, lands on his feet. However, as soon as Van Dam lands on his feet, Lethal nails him with a Spinning Enzuigiri! Moments later, Jay gets to his feet and climbs out onto the ring apron, eagerly waiting for RVD to get to his feet. When Rob gets to his feet, Lethal jumps off the ropes and goes for a Springboard Double Axehandle but Van Dam counters it with a Spinning Heel Kick in mid-air!

Both competitors lie on the mat next to each other with the fans chanting ‘RVD!’ and ‘Let’s go, Lethal!’ and after several moments, they get back to their feet. Lethal and Van Dam begin to trade blows and Jay gains the upper hand in the exchange, then running off the ropes and hitting RVD with a Leg Lariat! Lethal makes the cover: One! Two! Van Dam gets the shoulder up! Jay gets back up and slowly climbs to the top rope, going for the Diving Elbow Drop... but Van Dam moves out of the way! Lethal crashes into the canvas, and moments later RVD gets to his feet, running off the ropes and nailing Lethal with the Rolling Thunder! The cover is made by Van Dam, could this be it? One! Two! Three-NO! Lethal kicks out! RVD sits up with a look of disbelief on his face and slowly gets to his feet, climbing to the top rope and waiting for his opponent to get up. When Jay gets up, RVD goes for the Flying Thrust Kick... but Lethal catches his foot. Jay lets go of Van Dam’s foot and goes for a kick to the mid-section, but RVD catches his leg and hits Lethal with a Spinning Crescent Kick! Van Dam gets back up and drags Jay towards the corner by his arms, then facing away from him, jumping onto the top rope, and connecting with a Split-Legged Moonsault! RVD then makes the cover: One! Two! Three-NO! Lethal gets the shoulder up!

This match comes to an end when Jay Lethal climbs out onto the ring apron and waits for Rob Van Dam to get to his feet. When Van Dam gets up, Lethal jumps onto the ropes, and nails RVD with a Springboard Dropkick! However, Jay is unable to make the cover straight away, but after several moments he hooks Van Dam’s legs and pins him, One! Two! Three-NO! Kick out from RVD! Lethal came agonizingly close to causing an upset and winning the match there, and after taking some time to recover, he gets to his feet and gets Rob up. Jay lifts Van Dam up in a Back Suplex position, and he spins around to go for the Lethal Combination but RVD lands on his feet and when Jay turns around, Van Dam hits him with a Roundhouse Kick. Rob then slowly climbs to the top rope, and nails Lethal with the Five-Star Frog Splash! Van Dam falls down to his back upon impact, but then lays an arm over Lethal, making what must surely be the final pinfall of the match: One! Two! Three!

Rob Van Dam def. Jay Lethal at 8:26

“Whole F’n Show” hits to cheers from the crowd and an exhausted Rob Van Dam gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee Mike Posey. Van Dam staggers towards the corner of the ring and climbs to the second rope, posing for the fans before climbing back down and pointing at Desmond Wolfe at the announce table, performing his signature pose and saying ‘I’m gonna beat you a whole lot easier than that on Sunday, Desmond’.

Desmond Wolfe: (Talking to RVD) If you can only scrape a victory against a nobody like Jay Lethal then you ain’t got a chance against me at Sacrifice, you tosser!

RVD then helps Jay Lethal to his feet and embraces with him, raising Lethal’s hand in the air to cheers from the crowd. Van Dam parades him around the ring before patting Jay on the back and leaving the ring, walking up the ramp and looking at Wolfe as he walks past the announce table. However, when he does, Wolfe leaves the announce table and runs into the ring, attacking Lethal from behind! The crowd boo as Wolfe stomps away at the youngster, then climbing on top of Jay and pummeling him with blows, but when Van Dam sees, he runs back down the ramp and enters the ring, scaring Wolfe away! Desmond quickly leaves the squared circle and jogs up the ramp with Chelsea, as RVD helps Lethal up once again and “Whole F’n Show” plays again.

Mike Tenay: Desmond Wolfe sounds confident that he’ll beat Rob Van Dam this Sunday at Sacrifice, but when Van Dam came back to the ring just then Wolfe got out of there straight away! He didn’t look so confident there!

Mick Foley: If Van Dam and Wolfe’s match on Sunday is half as good as the match we just saw then I’ll be pleased, because RVD and Jay Lethal just had an awesome match! You won’t see professional wrestling like that anywhere else, folks!

Mike Tenay: I have a feeling you’re gonna like the match coming up next then, Mick; Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle, one-on-one, in the final of the #1 Contender’s Tournament! Who will challenge AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in six days at Sacrifice? Find out when we return!

We then see a split-screen of Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle, both backstage on their way to the ring, before we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, we are at the announce table with Mike Tenay and Mick Foley.

Mike Tenay: Welcome back to Impact everybody, what a night it has been on the last edition of Monday Night Impact before we move back to Thursdays next week.

Mick Foley: We’ll still be right here on Spike, but in our old timeslot of 8/7 CT. Being on Mondays has been a great experience for me, but on Thursdays I think TNA's audience is going to grow even more.

Mike Tenay: But before that, it’s Sacrifice, this Sunday in Daytona Beach, Florida. Let’s take a look at what we’re going to see.

Mick Foley: Matt Morgan and The British Invasion will represent the World Elite against the Latin American Exchange and ‘The Freak’ Rob Terry, and if Morgan and the Brits lose then the World Elite must disband!

Mike Tenay: The TNA Knockouts Championship will be on the line, as Daffney defends the title she won last month at Lockdown against the former Champion, Tara!

Mick Foley: The Motor City Machine Guns were scheduled to defend the TNA World Tag Team Championships against Beer Money but as we found out earlier tonight, they’ll not only be facing Beer Money but also Eric Young and Kevin Nash, thanks to Nash’s Feast or Fired briefcase!

Mike Tenay: We will determine the undisputed TNA X Division Champion, as the former co-Champions ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels and Kazarian go one-on-one!

Mick Foley: It is one of the most personal rivalries we have seen in recent times here in TNA, and it comes to a head on Sunday. The TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero defends the title against ‘The War Machine’ Rhino in a Falls Count Anywhere Match!

Mike Tenay: As we heard at the start of tonight’s broadcast, Jeff Jarrett will face Mr. Anderson! The loudmouth Anderson is confident that he can beat Jarrett, but can he put his money where his mouth is?

Mick Foley: Plus, the match which is three months in the making, a match which has been inevitable since he came to TNA on February 15th; Rob Van Dam faces Desmond Wolfe!

Mike Tenay: And in the main event, ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Syles will defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against the winner of the main event in just a few moments; ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy or ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle!

Mick Foley: And that’s going to happen right now, Mike!

“Modest” hits and Jeff Hardy walks out as the lights go out in the Impact Zone and green lasers shoot off from the entranceway. Hardy dances around on the stage before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. Jeff climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses for the crowd before climbing back down. Then, “Gold Metal” blares out to a big pop and Kurt Angle ascends up to the stage from an elevator, throwing his hands into the air as his pyro goes off. Angle walks down the ramp, his eyes fixated on Hardy, and enters the ring, posing for the crowd once more before removing his T-Shirt and tags.

Match Six
Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle
#1 Contender’s Tournament Final


The bell rings and Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle approach the centre of the ring, having a stare-down and exchanging words before locking up. Angle forces Hardy into the corner of the ring and the referee Earl Hebner has to separate them, but when Hebner moves out of the way Jeff runs at Kurt and floors him with a double-leg takedown. Hardy climbs on top of Angle but before he can get any shots in, Angle turns over and gets Jeff on the mat, and Hardy then frantically crawls away. Kurt walks towards Jeff and grabs his legs but Hardy kicks Angle away, giving himself time to get back to his feet. The two competitors approach each other again and lock up, Angle wrenching Hardy’s arm and quickly pulling him into a knee to the mid-section. Kurt hits Jeff with some right hands before Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and then running towards him, but ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ hits Angle with a boot to the face. Kurt spins around upon impact and Hardy then runs out of the corner, driving Angle face-first into the mat with a Bulldog! Jeff turns Kurt over and hooks his legs, making the first cover of the match: One! Angle kicks out.

Hardy gets back to his feet and gets Angle up, hitting him with some Chops to the chest to the mid-section which are met with ‘Wooooo’s from the crowd until Kurt is placed in the corner. Jeff begins to stomp away at Angle’s mid-section until Kurt is in a seated position and Hardy takes a few steps back before running up and hitting Angle with the Hardyac Arrest Dropkick! Jeff rolls backwards and gets back up, getting Angle to his feet too. Hardy gets him in a front facelock and lifts Kurt into the air, looking to go for a Suplex but Angle twists around in the air and lands on his feet behind Hardy, hitting Jeff with a Back Suplex. Kurt sits Jeff up and wraps his legs around Hardy’s waist, applying a bodyscissors. At first, Jeff tries to break out of it by pulling Angle’s legs away from around his waist but that is unsuccessful so Hardy then attempts some back elbows and they are successful, all connecting with Angle’s jaw. With the match being fairly slow-paced so far, both competitors get back to their feet and Jeff runs at Kurt, but out of no where Angle nails Hardy with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex, suddenly bringing this match to life!

Angle crawls across the mat and hooks Hardy’s legs, making the cover: One! Two! On the count of two, Jeff kicks out. Kurt gets back to his feet and eagerly waits for Jeff to get to his feet. When he does, Angle wraps his arms around Hardy’s waist and hits him with a German Suplex! The fans shout ‘One!’ in unison as Kurt gets back up still holding onto Jeff, and connects with a second German Suplex! ‘Two!’ Angle gets Hardy up one more time, and hits a third and final German Suplex! Kurt makes the cover again, One! Two! Hardy gets the shoulder up! Angle sits up and glances at the referee Earl Hebner before getting to his feet and slowly getting Hardy up. With the pace of the match slowing down again, Angle Irish whips Jeff into the corner of the ring and ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ jumps to the top rope, going for the Whisper In The Wind but Angle reverses it into a Powerbomb! The fans chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ and Angle, still holding onto Hardy’s legs, turns him over, lets go of one leg, and applies the Ankle Lock!

The crowd cheer as Angle locks Hardy in his trademark submission hold and Jeff, who looks barely conscious, reaches his hands out in desperation. Kurt continues to apply as much pressure as possible and shouts ‘Tap! Tap! Tap!’ over and over again, wanting nothing more than to win this match and go on to face AJ Styles for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at Sacrifice. Hardy manages to slightly edge across the ring closer to the ropes but they are still out of his reach. Jeff’s ankle is undoubtedly on thin ice right now, but Hardy manages to crawl across the mat a little further, and Jeff makes it to the ropes! He barely survives the Ankle Lock! Hebner instructs Angle to let go, but a frustrated Kurt doesn’t let go until the four count, showing just how much a title shot on Sunday means to him. ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ waits impatiently for Hardy to get back up, and when he does, Angle removes the straps of his singlet from around his arms and gets behind Jeff, going for the Angle Slam... but Hardy lands on his feet behind Kurt.

Angle turns around and Hardy kicks him in the mid-section, getting Kurt in a front facelock, lifting him up into the air and hitting Angle with a Sitout Inverted Suplex Slam! After that, both competitors lie next to each other on the canvas for several moments until Hardy struggles to his feet and slowly climbs to the top rope. A tired Jeff poses for the crowd, but before he can do anything Angle gets up, quickly climbs to the top rope, and hits Hardy with a top-rope Belly-to-Belly Suplex! The crowd go wild as Angle and Hardy are back to where they were before, both down and out, but now the ball is in Kurt’s court. After a few seconds, Angle manages to lay an arm over Jeff’s chest and make the cover, could this be it? Is Angle going to Sacrifice? One! Two! Three- NO! Hardy gets the shoulder up a split-second before the three-count! Angle sits up with a look of disbelief on his face, wondering what it will take to defeat Jeff Hardy before slowly getting to his feet and climbing to the top rope. ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ points to the sky, before going for the Frog Splash... but Hardy gets the knees up!

These two competitors continue to outdo and outsmart each other with plenty of reversals and counters in this contest, and Angle and Hardy are once again both down on the mat. This time, they get back up at the same time and Jeff and Kurt sluggishly trade blows. They continue to do so until Hardy gains the upper hand in the exchange and hits Angle with a Sit-Out Jawbreaker. ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ then gets back to his feet and grabs Kurt’s legs, opening them up wide and hitting a Double Leg Drop on Angle’s groin!Jeff then makes the cover, One! Two! Angle kicks out! After another disappointment, Hardy takes a breather before getting back up and waiting for Kurt to get to his feet. When Angle gets up, Jeff kicks him in the mid-section and goes for the Twist Of Fate, but Angle pushes Hardy away and then nails him with the Angle Slam! Kurt isn’t able to capitalize straight away as he lies on the mat next to Hardy but he is eventually able to make the cover, hooking Jeff’s legs, and this surely must be what sends Angle to Sacrifice, One! Two! Three- NO! Somehow, some way, Hardy kicks out of the Angle Slam!

This enthralling main event match comes to an end about two minutes later, when Kurt Angle gets Jeff Hardy to his feet. Angle runs off the ropes and goes for a Clothesline but Hardy ducks it, kicks Angle in the mid-section and connects with the Twist Of Fate! The crowd go wild as Jeff finally hits his patented finishing move but Angle manages to roll out of the ring, falling to the concrete floor. An exhausted Hardy struggles to his feet and climbs to the top rope, looking down at Kurt on the floor outside the ring and then looking around the Impact Zone, making a pose, before flying from the top rope and hitting Angle with the Swanton Bomb on the outside of the ring! The crowd go nuts and some chant ‘Holy Sh*t!’ as Hardy’s head lies on Angle’s chest outside the ring with neither man moving, and the referee’s count begins. ONE! TWO! THREE! FOUR! FIVE! Neither man has moved thus far. SIX! SEVEN! EIGHT! Angle and Hardy are slowly getting up... NINE! They both have two hands on the ring apron... TEN!

Jeff Hardy fought Kurt Angle to a double count-out at 11:39

The crowd in the Impact Zone boo as the bell is rung and the result of this match is confirmed as a double count-out. Moments later, Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle re-enter the ring and slowly get to their feet, having a heated stare-down, before Angle hits Hardy with a right hand, and the fighting continues! The crowd cheer as Angle takes Jeff down and hits him with blows with Hardy fighting back, but then “Get Ready To Fly” hits and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles comes out, running down the ramp with his title and entering the ring, breaking up the fight! The crowd boo as Styles tells both Angle and Hardy to calm down, trying to restore order in the ring, and then “Rockhouse” blares out as Hulk Hogan walks out onto the stage to a big pop from the crowd! Hogan has a microphone in hand and the three men in the ring turn their attention to ‘The Hulkster’ immediately.

Hulk Hogan: First off, how about we give it up for Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle for having one hell of a match tonight!

The crowd cheer, and both Angle and Hardy appear to acknowledge the ovation.

Hulk Hogan: You two guys just took it to a whole new level, and I’m sure it’ll be taken ever higher this Sunday at Sacrifice but we’ve gotta have a World Title match and we’re gonna have one, brother!

Cheers from the crowd.

Hulk Hogan: It’s gonna be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles... versus Jeff Hardy...

Pop for Hardy.

Hulk Hogan: ... versus Kurt Angle, in a Three-Way Match for the title!

The crowd go nuts and “Rockhouse” plays as Hulk Hogan departs, leaving AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle who will face each other this Sunday at Sacrifice for the gold. Styles extends his hand to Hardy and Jeff shakes it... but then kicks AJ in the mid-section and nails him with the Twist Of Fate! To a pop from the crowd, Jeff gets back up, but then Angle hits Hardy with the Angle Slam! Now, both Hardy and Styles are down and the last man standing in the ring is Kurt Angle, who picks up the TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt and holds it in the air to a thunderous pop from the crowd to close this edition of Impact.

Mike Tenay: Oh my God! It’s gonna be AJ Styles versus Jeff Hardy versus Kurt Angle in a Three-Way Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at Sacrifice, and now Angle is the last man standing in the ring! Could this be a sign of things to come in six days’ time? Find out live on pay per view on Sunday!

Mick Foley: And don’t forget, folks, next week Impact returns to Thursday nights right here on Spike at 9/8CT! Have a nice day!

Impact Feedback


Shit, you’ve already posted ANOTHER show on top of this one, ummm, I’ll get to it eventually.

Opening the show with Desmond Wolfe? Okay, I’m not sure what I expected, but this wasn’t it, although I am happy to see at least one in ring segment on this show. I recall you having Wolfe call Hardy or somebody a wanker a couple of weeks back, I’m not exactly sure if he does this almost every week, but if he doesn’t, you might want to save the name calling for special occasions. Wolfe came off as extremely arrogant and pompous/English , so I actually thought you did pretty well with this promo. Maybe could have added a little more to it, but considering there’s a match before commercials I’m guessing this was supposed to only be a small amount of mic time. A solid promo to start off the show anyway.

I’m actually not sure about the booking of this opening contest. Don’t get me wrong, I thought the Amazing Red was a pretty smart choice, as it would make Wolfe look strong, whilst also giving us an entertaining opener, although this didn’t happen. Whilst Wolfe did win cleanly, which he had to, reading through the match write up, it seemed as if Red actually got more offense in then Wolfe did, which leaves me wondering just how in the hell is Wolfe even going to be able to compete with one of the biggest names in TNA, RVD. Everything would have been fine, if you had Red look competitive, but I thought you made him look a little too good in this one.

Rob Van Dam’s interview, in my opinion was just plain bad. I didn’t like how you mentioned they were trying to prove who the better man was, or who could put their money where their mouth was, because as Van Dam said, the match hasn’t happened yet, and these things are usually said when a match is about to happen, and Van Dam hadn’t accepted the challenge yet, so it wasn’t a good start. We also all know Van Dam is a very laid back character with his dudes and mans, there was none of this. If his name wasn’t on it, I thought it would have been a Tommy Dreamer promo, not a good segment at all, although at least we’ve got an answer to Wolfe’s challenge.

This six women tag match really just seemed like a way to get the Knockout’s on television, which I understand completely. Tara looks good as they get closer towards the title match at the PPV too, which is always good for the challenger.

A decent enough interview with The Pope here. The stuff with Rhino could have been explained a little bit more, but besides this, nothing wrong. Considering you had The Pope mention his dad in the interview, I think it is pretty obvious what has happened to him. I really feel as if you could have done this in a much better way, perhaps have Pope get called by his dad last week, or something like that. It’s the little things such as this that matter at the end of the day.

Bischoff and Hogan continue to be generic as hell, as they lay down the law in their usual boring fashion. Jarrett and Anderson continuing is something I don’t really like, although I have a feeling they will go at each other at Sacrifice.

Again, I think you’ve gone the wrong way with The Pope’s dad. Rhino is supposedly a monster, but a normal guy like The Pope’s dad is already conscious again? You should have played this off as brutal, and The Pope knowing who did it, goes nuts, this way, it just makes Rhino look really, really weak.

Storm/Shelley only getting five minutes is a questionable move. I honestly don’t mind if your shows are based around matches, but if they are, give one like this the time it deserves. Despite being disappointed with the length, you wrote a rather nice ending, and you surprised me by allowing the heel to go over cleanly, but it’s good, because they have to look credible sometimes too. I actually like Nash and Young getting involved, and Beer Money helping them out almost makes me thinks maybe their feud is coming to an end, with maybe respect beginning to come into things a little bit. Anyway, the attacks were fun, and Roode’s little bit on the mic was good to, keeping Beer Money against MCMG, at least until Sacrifice.

Morgan interview was alright, putting over The World Elite. Nothing special, but sure as hell nothing wrong either.

This tag match was all about Kazarian and Daniels, so it wasn’t surprising to not see them in the match for very long. The match was alright, with Kendrick and Lethal carrying the match really, although all that really matters is that Daniels backed away from Kaz. Considering he’s supposed to be really pissed off right now, I don’t like that, it just seems really weird for him to change his ways like that. With that being said, Kaz looks really good here, in what was an okay match.

Sacrifice is gaining on us rather quickly.

Hardy/Joe seemed like it would have been a decent enough affair. Unlike in other contests, where you seem to lean towards one guy completing most of the offense, this one was evenly spread out, and it just makes for an overall better read. There was nothing at all wrong with this match, a nice, solid contest, with Hardy (yuck, btw) progressing to the final of this tournament.

AJ Styles interview was alright, no personality as usual, but at least you had him in character. Styles has not featured heavily enough in the last few shows, considering he is a champion and all.

The main event was a decent read, with it being a typical, up and down affair, making it look as if both men had chances of winning. I was a little shocked that Angle picked up the victory, simply because it looks as if you’re going to have one of those awkward face/face matches at yet another PPV. I don’t like that, especially when the match has already happened before in the thread. Anyway, it was a nice win for Angle, with Anderson keeping strong to. The whole stare down thing with Hardy and Angle is pretty meh, TNA do these way too much.

Overall, it’s not the lack of promos that worry me; it’s the lack of storyline progression that comes with such a match heavy show. Besides, the tournament advancing, what did the matches really accomplish, bar putting people over? Not much. That’s why I was a little disappointed with this show; also there were a few questionable booking decisions on this show, which is something I haven’t had to bring up in this thread for awhile. I honestly thought this was a step in the wrong direction compared to your usual work, so hopefully the next Impact, which has already been posted, gets things back on track. Look for feedback for that sometime, well hopefully soon, as I’ve got some other shows to look at first.

Thanks for the review Stoj, I haven't been entirely happy with my work leading up to Sacrifice but I'm hoping it picks up after the PPV and with what I've got planned, I'm confident it will. For the PPV preview, I'm going to have a Before The Bell-esque video for four or five matches on the card to build up to Sacrifice which is what I'm going to do from now on as I find it to be better than a standard preview. Don't post predictions until all of them have been posted.

So, first up... the main event.

---

The video begins with a blank screen showing “May 16” in white lettering.

Narrator: On May 16th, get ready for the biggest encounter in TNA history as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles...

Shot of Styles posing on the stage with his pyro.

Narrator: ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy...

Hardy hitting Samoa Joe with the Twist of Fate.

Narrator: And ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle square off in a Three-Way Match for the most prestigious prize in professional wrestling.

Angle applying the Ankle Lock to Mr. Anderson, as a graphic showing the three competitors appears on the screen.

Narrator: Three stars will enter, but only one will shine at the end of the night.

Then, we cut to the conclusion of No Surrender last year, where Styles won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. It shows him hitting Angle with the 450 Splash to win the match, and subsequently celebrating in the ring with confetti falling from the ceiling, before cutting to an interview set with Styles sitting in a chair and the title over his shoulder.

AJ Styles: I will never forget the night when I won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship once again... September 20, No Surrender, it just felt bigger than the other times when I won the title, y’know? Just... everything. The fact that I pinned Kurt to win, the confetti falling from the ceiling, tons of guys in the ring me celebrating, it was awesome. And at Sacrifice, you’re damn right I’m gonna be celebrating again.

Narrator: After Lockdown, when AJ successfully defended the gold inside a Steel Cage against Jeff Hardy, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff announced an 8-Man Tournament to determine the next challenger at Sacrifice.

We see both Mr. Anderson pin Jeff Jarrett and Samoa Joe beat Rob Van Dam in the first night of the Tournament, before Hardy defeats Desmond Wolfe and Kurt Angle prevails against Sting.

Narrator: In the Semi-Finals, Hardy defeated ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe and Angle beat Mr. Anderson, both moving one step closer to gaining another opportunity at the title.

Shot of Angle and Hardy having a stare-down on the stage.

Narrator: The following week, on the last edition of Monday Night Impact, Angle and Hardy had an epic battle which resulted in a double count-out. Hogan then announced a 3-Way Match for the title for Sacrifice.

We see Hardy hit AJ with a Twist Of Fate and Angle hit Hardy with an Angle Slam before picking up the belt and holding it up in the air. We then cut to the interview set with Angle.

Kurt Angle: So it’s a 3-Way Match at Sacrifice... to be honest, as exciting as it’s gonna be for all the TNA fans, I’m not so happy about it but who would? There’s not one, but two guys that I have to go through to take back the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, but I’m not gonna waste my time bitching and moaning about it, I’m just gonna walk into Daytona Beach, unleash hell on both AJ and Jeff and prove why I’m the best wrestler in the world, and why I’m the next World Champion.

Cut to interview with Hardy.

Jeff Hardy: I came so close to winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Lockdown, all I had to do was climb out of that Cage and I would be walking into Sacrifice with the title, but I got the better of myself, that’s who I am, I can’t help but try to do the impossible. But my failure to win the belt at Lockdown is only gonna make the success of winning at Sacrifice a whole lot sweeter and yeah, both AJ and Kurt will be in there but it’s possible, and I really think I can do it on Sunday.

Shot of AJ, Angle and Hardy all standing in the ring this past Monday on Impact.

Jeff Hardy: So as for the question of who will be walking out of Sacrifice as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion... I think you’ll find that it’s gonna be me.

Kurt Angle: Me.

AJ Styles: (Holds up title) Me.

Sacrifice Video #2
Desmond Wolfe vs. Rob Van Dam


The video begins with Desmond Wolfe and Rob Van Dam standing in the ring face-to-face on their first confrontation, a week after RVD’s TNA debut.

Narrator: It is a match three months in the making...

Shot of Van Dam coming to the ring through the crowd on his debut and cleaning house.

Narrator: A match never seen before...

Wolfe making a gesture to the crowd.

Narrator: Until this Sunday. On May 16, live on pay per view, Desmond Wolfe and ‘The Whole F’n Show’ Rob Van Dam face each other for the first time ever. Who will leave with the bragging rights?

The camera then cuts to an interview set with Wolfe sat in a chair and Chelsea standing behind him with her hand on his shoulder.

Desmond Wolfe: Rob Van Dam... that bloke just doesn’t know when to quit, does he? He disappears for almost three years, and then he just has to come back for some stupid reason. Even a numpty like him would know that it can’t be that he’s here to be the best, because that spot is already locked by yours truly, isn’t that right, Chelsea?

Wolfe looks back at Chelsea, who smirks and nods her head. We then cut to the set with Van Dam.

Rob Van Dam: I’ve been in this business for a pretty long time now, and I can safely say that Desmond Wolfe doesn’t bring anything new to the table that I haven’t seen, whether it’s in the same company as me or not. Anybody can walk in and slap a big tag on themselves calling themselves the best, anybody can do that. And Desmond, that dude talks a pretty good game I’ll give him that, but he hasn’t done anything to prove to me that he’s as good in the ring so he can beat me. Will I have to eat my words on Sunday? I’d say probably not.

Narrator: Last month at Lockdown, Van Dam and Wolfe were in the same ring at the same time in the Lethal Lockdown Match with Team Angle, which included RVD, facing Team Flair, which Wolfe captained. Van Dam won the match for Team Angle after a 5-Star Frog Splash to Samoa Joe off a ladder through a table on the top of the Cage.

Shot of Van Dam putting Joe through the table at Lockdown, before cutting back to Wolfe on the interview set.

Desmond Wolfe: Lockdown proved absolutely nothing. Any lunatic can jump off a ladder and go through a table, that’s exactly what Rob is, and on Sunday there won’t be a Cage or any weapons it’ll just be me and him one-on-one... and that’s where I’m at my best. If Rob can’t see that... hey, it’s his own fault.

Cut to RVD.

Rob Van Dam: It’s pretty obvious that I’ve wanted to work my way to the top of TNA since the moment I got here, and Desmond’s got in the way of that, he’s set me back and he’s not gonna be gone until Sacrifice. Whatever I have to do to beat him, I’ll do, because whatever Desmond gets, no matter how bad it is, he deserves it, man. But rest assured, the guy with his hand raised after the match is gonna be R...

Cut back to Wolfe.

Desmond Wolfe: After Sacrifice, Rob Van Dam will remember the name...

Rob Van Dam: V...

Desmond Wolfe: Desmond...

Rob Van Dam: D.

Desmond Wolfe: Wolfe ...but then again, I’ll beat him so bad he won’t remember anything.
