TNA Thursday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 20, 2010

Four days removed from Sacrifice, TNA Impact is back on Thursday nights on Spike! However, you can still see two hours of the best professional wrestling on television as always with Total Nonstop Action!

At Sacrifice, 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles defied the odds and once again retained his TNA World Heavyweight Championship against not one, but two of TNA's best in Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle. Styles' next title defense will be in the King of the Mountain Match next month at Slammiversary and this week on Impact, Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff will announce the participants in the Qualifying Matches!

Styles will be in action on Impact for the first time in over a month, as he faces Kazarian who missed out on becoming TNA X Division Champion this past Sunday!

The controversial and outspoken Mr. Anderson will be in action, just four days removed from his brutal attack on Jeff Jarrett after beating Jarrett in a match!

Desmond Wolfe defeated Rob Van Dam at Sacrifice under very questionable circumstances, but this week he most likely won't try that again as he faces 'The Freak' Rob Terry!

It seemed like problems surfaced between Beer Money on Sunday when they were the first team eliminated from the Three-Way Tag Team Match, but James Storm and Robert Roode must co-exist this week against Generation Me!

See all of this and more on Thursday at 9/8C on Spike!

Confirmed For Impact:
Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff announce KOTM Qualifying Matches
AJ Styles faces Kazarian
Desmond Wolfe squares off against Rob Terry
Mr. Anderson is in action
Beer Money take on Generation Me

---

Impact is done, so it should be up tomorrow.

TNA Thursday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 20, 2010


Impact begins with a video package recapping Sacrifice this past Sunday, showing highlights of all of the matches on the card and putting extra emphasis on Mr. Anderson defeating Jeff Jarrett including Anderson’s brutal attack after the match, Desmond Wolfe beating Rob Van Dam under controversial circumstances and AJ Styles retaining the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle in the Three-Way Match which was the main event of the pay per view.

Then, the opening credits play and “Change Me” blares out as the camera enters the Edwards Hall. The pyro explodes on the stage and falls from the ceiling as the camera orbits the crowd in the Arena, most of the fans on their feet and cheering in excitement of being on the show. Then, we cut to Mike Tenay and ‘The Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley who are sat at the announce table in front of the left hand side of the stage, ready to welcome us to this TAPED (~!) broadcast of Impact.

Mike Tenay: Tonight, qualifying begins for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary VIII on June 13! Hello everybody and welcome to the first edition of Impact back on Thursday nights with just four nights removed from Sacrifice! Mike Tenay and ‘The Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley here, and Mick, what a great pay per view Sacrifice was this past Sunday in Daytona Beach.

Mick Foley: That couldn’t be more true, Professor, we saw some fantastic action at Sacrifice including the Three-Way Main Event for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship where ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles lived up to his moniker with a successful title defence against both Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle.

Mike Tenay: Also at Sacrifice, Mr. Anderson kept to his word and defeated the TNA founder Jeff Jarrett, but it got real ugly after the match though.

Mick Foley: What Anderson did to Jarrett last Sunday was nothing short of absolutely disgusting, Mike, many words come to mind to describe it but that word describes it best in my opinion. And like we discussed after the brutal attack, I’d be surprised if we see Jeff step into a TNA ring again.

Mike Tenay: And on top of that, Mick, Desmond Wolfe blatantly robbed Rob Van Dam of a victory in their match at Sacrifice, with Wolfe’s valet Chelsea getting heavily involved.

Mick Foley: Van Dam would certainly have won if Chelsea didn’t pull the referee out of the ring when RVD hit Wolfe with the Five-Star Frog Splash following both a Van Daminator and a Chair Surf, so knowing Rob like I do I think his problems with Desmond are far from over.

Mike Tenay: Ladies and gentlemen, I am getting word that Van Dam has elected not to compete in the King of the Mountain qualifying matches. We don’t know why, but when we find out we will let you all know, and also Wolfe will not be in the qualifiers either due to the controversy surrounding his victory against RVD at Sacrifice.

Then, “Rockhouse” hits to a big pop from the crowd and Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff walk through the curtain. Hogan poses and Bischoff points to his associate as a big pyro goes off before the duo walk down the ramp and enter the ring, both taking microphones from SoCal Val. They wait for the ovation to die down before either of them speaks.

Hulk Hogan: What’s up, TNA-Maniacs?!

Cheap pop from the crowd.

Hulk Hogan: It’s been four days since Sacrifice last Sunday, but it seems like just a minute ago I was watching AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle tear the house down in Daytona Beach, brother!

Big pop, as some “TNA” chants surface.

Eric Bischoff: Once again, all the guys that competed at Sacrifice proved why TNA is the best professional wrestling company in the world, and professional wrestling isn’t two dirty words to us, we’re damn proud of it!

More cheers.

Hulk Hogan: But now, with Sacrifice in the past, the road to Slammiversary is beginning, brother, and the main event is gonna be the yearly tradition of Slammiversary, the King of the Mountain Match!

Another pop.

Eric Bischoff: ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles...

Bischoff is cut off by cheers at the mention of the World Champion, and some “AJ Styles” chants begin.

Eric Bischoff: ... is going to defend the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against four other guys, who will be revealed over the course of the next two weeks with some qualifying matches, which start tonight!

You’ll never guess how the crowd reacted.

Eric Bischoff: Rob Van Dam will not be competing in the Qualifying Matches as per his request, and neither will Desmond Wolfe due to the controversy surrounding his victory against RVD at Sacrifice.

Major heat for Wolfe, and the news that RVD will definitely not be in the KOTM Match.

Eric Bischoff: As for Mr. Anderson, he has been fined $10, 000 dollars for his conduct after his match with Jeff Jarrett at Sacrifice, but he will be competing in the Qualifying Matches.

More heat from the crowd, unhappy that Anderson will be competing in the qualifiers.

Hulk Hogan: Which means that the eight guys in the qualifiers are... Hernandez (Pop) ... Jeff Hardy (Big pop) ... Kurt Angle (Big pop) ... Matt Morgan (Heat) ... Mr. Anderson (Major heat) ... Rob Terry (Pop) ... Samoa Joe (Mixed reaction) ... and Sting!

Big pop for Sting.

Eric Bischoff: And tonight, in the first two qualifiers, it will be Hernandez... versus ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe!

Cheers from the crowd.

Eric Bichoff: And... for the first time ever... it will be ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy... versus ‘The Icon’ Sting!

Huge pop from the crowd.

Hulk Hogan: So good luck to everybody in the qualifiers, and good luck to AJ Styles, because with four other guys going for your title at Slammiversary... you just might need it.

Hogan and Bischoff drop their microphones and leave the ring as “Rockhouse” blares out again, with the participants in the King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches and the first two qualifiers all announced.

Mike Tenay: Wow! Did you hear that, Mick? Tonight, in the first two King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches it will be Hernandez versus Samoa Joe, and for the first time ever, Jeff Hardy versus Sting!

Mick Foley: I still can’t believe we’re gonna see Hardy and Sting tonight, Professor, this is, quite simply put, a dream match and it’s tonight!

Mike Tenay: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m receiving word that after the commercial break, we’re gonna see Hernandez against Joe! Don’t go anywhere, folks, the first King of the Mountain Qualifying Match is up next on Thursday Night Impact!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, “Te Gusta O No!” hits and Hernandez walks out to a pop from the crowd, punching and kicking the air as his pyro goes off before jogging down the ramp. Hernandez slides into the ring and gets to his feet, climbing to the second rope in the corner of the ring and posing for the crowd before climbing back down. Then, “Nation Of Violence” blares out and Samoa Joe walks through the curtain, making a slit-throat gesture and raising his hand in the air as his pyro goes off. With a white towel draped over the back of his shoulders, Joe walks down the ramp with a scowl on his face and steps into the ring, posing again before standing in the corner opposite Hernandez.

Match One
Hernandez vs. Samoa Joe
King of the Mountain Qualifying Match

The bell rings for the match to get underway, and as soon as it does, Samoa Joe takes his towel off his shoulders and throws it in the face of Hernandez! Joe then immediately runs at his opponent and unloads on Hernandez with blows to the face and chest, but he fights back and shoves Joe away back into the middle of the ring. Joe freezes, as does Hernandez, and the two competitors approach the middle of the ring, preparing to lock up. But, as Hernandez raises his arms higher into the air, Joe kicks him in the mid-section and Irish whips him into the ropes, taking Hernandez down with a Clothesline. Joe runs off the ropes and Hernandez turns over as Joe jumps over him and rebounds off the ropes again. Hernandez gets to his feet and takes Joe down with a Hip Toss, followed by a Back Body Drop after Joe gets back to his feet. Hernandez drops to his knees and makes the first cover attempt of the match, One! Unsurprisingly, Joe kicks out. Hernandez gets back up and gets Joe to his feet, getting him in a standing headlock until Joe pushes him away into the corner.

Joe then runs towards Hernandez, who is facing the other way, but Hernandez hits him with a back elbow. Joe goes staggering back into the middle of the ring and Hernandez walks towards him, kicking Joe in the mid-section, getting him in a front facelock and hitting ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ with a Suplex. Another pin is made by Hernandez: One! Two- Joe kicks out again. Hernandez gets back up and gets Joe to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. He then runs towards him but Joe boots Hernandez in the face, sending him back-pedalling and Joe then throws Hernandez over the top rope out of the ring. Joe takes a few moments to regain his composure, and when Hernandez gets back to his feet Joe rebounds off the ropes before running across the ring and flying through the ropes, hitting Hernandez with a Suicide Dive Forearm Smash! The crowd go wild and chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ as the two competitors lie motionlessly on the floor until Joe gets back up and re-enters the ring on the referee’s count of five. On the count of eight, Hernandez gets back up and on nine, much to Joe’s chagrin, Hernandez gets back in the ring!

With Hernandez down on the mat, Joe unloads on ‘Super Mex’ with repeated stomps to the back until he gets him to his feet. Joe Irish whips Hernandez into the corner of the ring and then walks towards him, lifting Hernandez to the top rope. Joe tries to get him in position for the Muscle Buster, but Hernandez kicks him away and then flies from the top rope, hitting Joe with a Flying Mexican Boulder Shoulder! Hernandez and Joe lie next to each other on the mat for a few moments as we see a replay of that, and when we’re back on the match, Hernandez makes the cover! One! Two! Joe gets the shoulder up! Moments later, Hernandez gets back to his feet and waits for Joe to get to his feet. When Joe gets up, Hernandez gets him in a front facelock and lifts Joe into the air, keeping him up there for several moments. The crowd cheer and the commentators are amazed that Hernandez is managing to keep a two-hundred-and-eighty-pound man in the air for such a long time, and after about fifteen seconds, Hernandez finally drops Joe with a Vertical Suplex! Hernandez makes the cover again, One! Two! Kick out from Joe!

Hernandez gets Joe back to his feet moments later with both men beginning to get tired and gets him in position for the Mexplex (T-Bone Suplex). However, Joe begins to fight back with blows to the mid-section until he breaks free and he Irish whips Hernandez into the ropes, then hitting him with an STJoe followed by a Running Senton! Joe is beginning to get fired up, which is bad news for Hernandez, and he gets ‘Super Mex’ to his feet, pushing him into the corner. Joe unloads on Hernandez with rapid lefts and rights to the head and mid-section before taking a few steps back and running towards his opponent, hitting Hernandez with a Running Forearm Smash! Joe pauses, looking at Hernandez with a smirk on his face before turning around, and jumping and twisting around in the air, hitting Hernandez with the CCS Enzuigiri! Hernandez falls flat on his face to the mat and Joe turns him over, hooking his legs and expecting victory here, One! Two! No! Hernandez gets the shoulder up! An angry Joe gets back to his feet and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ walks towards the referee Andrew Thomas, cornering him and glaring at him, saying ‘Next time, do your job right’.

The ending to this King of the Mountain Qualifying Match comes when Hernandez has fought his way back into the match and he has the advantage over Samoa Joe. He Irish whips Joe face-first into the corner and then walks towards Joe, lifting him to the top rope with Joe still facing the other way and turning around, grabbing Joe’s arms and lifting him into the air. Hernandez walks into the middle of the ring with Joe in position to be hit by the Border Toss... but Hernandez becomes distracted when his former tag team partner Matt Morgan walks out onto the stage! The crowd boo the arrival of Morgan who stands on the stage watching the match and Hernandez drops Joe, walking towards the ropes and shouting at Morgan ‘Get yourself outta’ here or I’ll throw you outta’ here!’ but ‘The Blueprint’ is not fazed. When Hernandez turns back around, Joe kicks him in the mid-section, lifts him up onto his left shoulder, and nails Hernandez with the Island Driver! Morgan grins and claps his hands together as Joe hooks Hernandez’s legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Three!

Samoa Joe def. Hernandez at 7:44

“Nation Of Violence” hits and Samoa Joe gets to his feet, raising his own hand in the air and ignoring the referee Andrew Thomas. Joe walks towards the ropes and looks at the camera, making a slit-throat gesture and motioning around his waist that he will win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary in the King of the Mountain Match that he has just qualified for. Meanwhile, Matt Morgan walks down the ramp laughing and enters the ring, standing over Hernandez and raising his hands in the air to major heat from the crowd. Joe walks towards Morgan and the two have a stare-down, until Joe leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, not making any kind of motion to Morgan.

Mike Tenay: Thanks to ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan, Samoa Joe pins Hernandez and as a result is the first to qualify for the King of the Mountain Match next month at Slammiversary which means that Joe will be competing for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship along with the current Champion AJ Styles and three other competitors on June 13.

Mick Foley: Joe would probably say otherwise and I’m definitely not going to confront him on it, but if it wasn’t for Matt Morgan then Morgan’s former tag team partner Hernandez, who is responsible for the disbandment of the World Elite, would be in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary, Professor.

Mike Tenay: Christy Hemme is standing backstage with Rob Van Dam right now, take it away Christy.

The camera cuts backstage where Christy Hemme is standing with Rob Van Dam.

Christy Hemme: Thanks, Mike, I’m standing with ‘The Whole F’n Show’ Rob Van Dam, who we know has taken himself out of the King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches. Can you tell us why?

Rob Van Dam: Sorry, Christy, but you’ll have to find out when everybody else does.

Van Dam gives an apologetic look to Hemme before walking away.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

TNA SLAMMIVERSARY VIII – JUNE 13 – ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA

---

Back on Impact, “My Generation” hits to cheers from the crowd and Jeremy and Max Buck walk out, posing on the stage next to each other before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and simultaneously sliding under the ropes into the ring. They both climb to the second rope in opposite corners and pose for the crowd again before climbing back down. Then, “Take A Fall” blares out to a mixed reaction but instead of an entrance, the camera cuts backstage where Robert Roode is looking around just behind the curtain.

Robert Roode: Where the hell is he? James?! James?! ... oh my God. This is pathetic.

Roode shakes his head before walking through the curtain and emerging on the stage, storming down the ramp alone and entering the ring, standing opposite Generation Me.

Match Two
Generation Me vs. Robert Roode
Handicap Match

The bell rings, and with this contest seemingly now a Handicap Match due to James Storm’s conspicuous absence, Jeremy Buck climbs out onto the ring apron whilst Max stays in the ring opposite Robert Roode. Max and Roode lock up and Roode overpowers his opponent, forcing Max into the corner of the ring but before anything can materialize, the referee Slick Johnson separates the two. Roode takes a few steps back and waits for Max to come out of the corner and when he does, Roode kicks him in the mid-section. He then gets Buck in a standing headlock, but Max pushes him away into the ropes. Roode comes running back off them and jumps over Buck who lies on the floor before rebounding off the ropes again but Max springs to his feet and knocks Roode down with a Dropkick! Buck quickly hooks his legs and makes the cover, One! Kick out from Roode. Max gets back up and gets Roode to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner and subsequently running towards him but Roode hits him with a boot to the face. Buck goes staggering backwards into the middle of the ring, and when he regains his composure Roode plants him with a Scoop Slam followed by a Knee Drop.

Roode then gets Max to his feet with Buck’s hand reached out trying to make the tag to his brother Jeremy, but gets hit with a knee to the mid-section from Roode. ‘The Wall Street Wizard’ then hits Max with repeated elbows to the back of the head before running off the ropes and going for a Knee Lift but Buck rolls forward out of the way. Max then gets back up and runs at Roode, hitting Roode with a Tilt-a-Whirl Headscissors Takedown! The crowd cheer and Max immediately crawls across the ring, tagging his brother Jeremy into the match. Jeremy enters the ring and immediately makes the cover: One! Two! On the count of two, Roode gets the shoulder up. Buck gets back to his feet and gets Roode up, wrenching his arm around and hitting him with repeated kicks to the mid-section before taking a few steps back and running up, hitting Roode with an Enzuigiri! Jeremy then makes the cover again, One! Two! Roode kicks out! Buck gets back to his feet and gets Roode up, taking him towards the corner of the ring and tagging Max into the match. Jeremy wrenches Roode’s arm around and Max climbs to the top rope, hitting Roode with a Double-Foot Stomp to his arm!

This contest comes to an end when Robert Roode has regained control of this Handicap Match and Jeremy Buck is down in the ring. Roode is about to get Jeremy to his feet, but then he sees his tag team partner who was supposed to be competing in this match, James Storm, walk out! Storm is greeted with heat from the crowd and Roode shouts at him ‘Where the hell have you been?!’ but Storm simply ignores him and walks over to the announce table, taking a seat in between Mike Tenay and Mick Foley. Roode shakes his head in disgust before turning around and getting Buck to his feet, getting him in position for the Pay-Off but Jeremy reverses it with a Small Package pin! One! Two! Three! Roode’s lost the match!

Generation Me def. Robert Roode at 6:05

“My Generation” hits and Max Buck gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee as Jeremy gets back up as well, embracing with his brother. They raise each other’s hands in the air before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp together with a victory under their belt despite them having an extra man in the contest. Meanwhile, Robert Roode crawls towards the corner of the ring and sits up, looking at James Storm at the announce table who has a remorseless look on his face.

James Storm: See that? Sunday wasn’t a fluke, gentlemen, Bobby lost again. That’s not the kind of tag team partner I want, he should know that but yet he hasn’t proved me wrong.

Mike Tenay: It was a Handicap Match, James!

James Storm: Look, I don’t care what kind of match he’s in, Bobby needs to prove to me that he can keep being my tag team partner or he’s gonna be in a whole lot of trouble. I’m outta’ here.

Storm removes his headset and stands up, leaving the announce table and walking up the ramp. He looks back at Roode in the ring, before disappearing behind the curtain.

Mike Tenay: I don’t know what’s gotten into him lately, Mick, but I don’t like what James Storm is doing.

Mick Foley: Hey, it shows that Storm is passionate about being a Champion, and I can’t argue with that, Mike.

Backstage, Desmond Wolfe is sat in his locker room on a chair with Chelsea at his side, and he is talking to the cameraman.

Desmond Wolfe: So Rob Van Dam withdrew himself from the King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches... why should I care about anything that tosser does? RVD is nothing, and for everybody who disagrees, I suggest they take a second look at Sacrifice last Sunday when I beat him.

Wolfe looks at Chelsea, who smiles at him, before he continues talking.

Desmond Wolfe:Sure, it got me barred from the Qualifiers, but so what? King of the Mountain is a rubbish match anyway, and when I win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, I’m gonna do it with class... something that Van Dam doesn’t have, and never will. Let’s go, Chelsea.

Wolfe stands up and takes Chelsea’s hand, as they both walk out of the room.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, “Freak Out” hits to cheers from the crowd and Rob Terry walks out, raising his hands in the air and flexing his muscles before walking down the ramp. Terry steps into the ring and poses for the crowd again before walking into the corner. Then, “Menacing” blares out to heat as smoke veils the stage and Desmond Wolfe walks through it, hand-in-hand with Chelsea. Wearing a grey jacket, Wolfe gives the fans his two-fingered gesture before walking down the ramp and stepping into the ring with Chelsea holding down the middle rope for him. Wolfe salutes the crowd again before removing his jacket and handing it to Chelsea, then standing in the corner opposite Terry.

Match Three
Desmond Wolfe vs. Rob Terry
Singles Match

The bell rings for the match to get underway and Desmond Wolfe and Rob Terry approach the middle of the ring. Wolfe seemingly dismisses Terry’s size and strength judging by the expression on his face, smirking which doesn’t go down well with Terry who begins to unload on Wolfe with right hands! Desmond staggers backwards into the ropes after a few blows and Terry Irish whips him into the opposite ropes, then hitting him with an impactful Shoulder Block. Rob doesn’t stop there, as he stomps away at Wolfe until Desmond manages to roll out of the ring to the outside, regaining his composure. Chelsea, standing near him, says to Wolfe ‘What is this?’ and he replies ‘I’ll get him now, Chelsea’ don’t you worry’ before cautiously climbing onto the ring apron. The two competitors come to a standstill until Terry runs at Wolfe but Wolfe hits the Welshman with a thrust to the mid-section. Desmond then re-enters the ring and gets Terry in a hammerlock before planting him on the mat with the Divorce Court. Wolfe, looking to end this match quickly, subsequently hooks Rob’s legs and makes the first pin attempt of the match, One! Two! On the count of two, Terry kicks out.

In a hurry, Wolfe sits Terry up and gets to his feet, running off the ropes and going for a boot to Rob’s face, but Terry manages to watch Desmond’s foot. Wolfe looks at him in horror as he gets back to his feet and Terry then pulls him in, flooring Wolfe with a Clothesline! Rob looks around the Impact Zone with his intensity building up before flexing his muscles and letting out a reverberating roar. Terry then wraps both of his hands around Wolfe’s neck and lifts him to his feet, before throwing him into the corner of the ring. He hits Desmond with some right hands before hitting some stomps to the mid-section and then taking a few steps back. Terry runs up towards his opponent, but Wolfe hits ‘The Freak’ with an elbow to the face which sends Rob back-pedalling. Wolfe hits Terry with some blows until he is in the corner and Desmond hits him with a few more before running to the opposite corner and jumping up on the middle rope, giving the fans his two-fingered gesture and then running back towards Terry, hitting him with a Running European Uppercut!

This match, which hasn’t been anything special, comes to an end when Rob Terry gets Desmond Wolfe to his feet and lifts him up into the air above his head with both of his hands, in a Military Press position. Terry looks ready to drop him down to the mat, but Wolfe fights out of the predicament by digging his fingers into Terry’s eyes, blinding him as Desmond slips out of his grasps and lands on his feet on the mat. Wolfe then steps back and tilts back in between the ropes, before running forward and nailing Terry with the Jawbreaker Lariat! Desmond drops to his knees and hooks Terry’s legs, making the cover: One! Two! Three! It’s over!

Desmond Wolfe def. Rob Terry at 5:32

“Menacing” hits to heat from the crowd and Desmond Wolfe gets back to his feet, immediately grinning as he gives the crowd his two-fingered gesture. Chelsea enters the ring and stands alongside Wolfe as he continues to bask in his glory, but then “Whole F’n Show” blares out to a huge pop and Rob Van Dam comes through the curtain, running down the ramp into the ring and flooring Wolfe with a Double-Leg Takedown!

The crowd cheer as Van Dam continues his attack on Desmond Wolfe, climbing on top of him and pummeling Wolfe with blows to the head. As Rob Terry rolls out of the ring, Van Dam climbs off Wolfe and when Desmond gets back to his feet, RVD goes for a Roundhouse Kick, but Wolfe ducks it and slides out of the ring, getting a lot of heat from the crowd. Wolfe backs up the ramp, saying ‘You stay away from me! I beat you! You’re done!’ with Chelsea following him, and meanwhile in the ring Van Dam climbs to the second rope, pointing at Wolfe before pounding his fist into the palm of his opposite hand, then smirking and performing his signature thumb taunt for the crowd.

Mike Tenay: Desmond Wolfe was stupid to think that he’d get away with robbing Rob Van Dam of a victory at Sacrifice, and his actions almost came back to bite him in the ass tonight!

Mick Foley: Something tells me the worst is yet to come for Wolfe, Professor, it’s far from over between him and Van Dam.

Mike Tenay: I think we now know why Van Dam took himself out of the King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches, Mick! He’s not finished with Desmond Wolfe by a long shot!

Backstage, Tara is stood in a dark hallway, stood up against a cage with a boiler inside it.

Tara: God, I’m so pissed off right now! Daffney... Daffney knows she can’t beat me! She cheated on Sunday, everybody saw it!

Tara slams her fists back against the cage in anger.

Tara: But- but Daffney’s not gonna get away with this. Oh no, she is not.

She smirks and pulls her long, black hair down over her shoulders.

Tara: I’m gonna make her pay... I’m gonna make her suffer for what she did... and I’m gonna take back that Knockouts Championship...

Tara begins to laugh, before suddenly storming away, knocking the cameraman over, as we then cut to the locker room area with the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns who are with Jeremy Borash.

Jeremy Borash: I’m here with the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns who this past Sunday at Sacrifice retained their titles against not one, but two teams in a Three-Way Tag Team Match against Beer Money and Eric Young and Kevin Nash. Where do you guys go from here?

Alex Shelley: First off, JB, why isn’t Christy Hemme doing this interview? I told her personally she is always welcome in the men’s locker room, especially when me and Chris are in here.

Borash looks around awkwardly, not knowing what to say.

Chris Sabin: But to answer your original question, The Motor City Machine Guns are fighting Champions so if anybody wants a shot at these TNA World Tag Team Championships, as long as they’ve proven they can hang with us in the ring, they can have it. We saw Generation Me beat Beer Money, or Robert Roode should I say, earlier tonight and we liked what we saw but winning a Handicap Match just isn’t enough.

Alex Shelley: So Generation Me, we’re gonna go to Hulk Hogan or Eric Bischoff and we’re gonna request a match next week for you guys. If you lose that match, it’s the back of the line for you two and you can keep pestering Jeff Hardy about getting that Hardy Boys starter kit you always wanted. But if you win... then you two have got a match with us for the titles at Slammiversary.

Borash then turns to the camera, with Sabin and Shelley standing behind him and Sabin picks up a white sign from behind him which says ‘I’m with Stupid’, holding it up with Shelley over JB’s head with an arrow pointing down to him.

Jeremy Borash: There you have it folks, Generation Me in action next week on Impact.

JB turns around to see the sign Sabin and Shelley were holding with a look of confusion on his face, as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, Sean Morley is already in the ring as “Cool Dude” fades out, jobber-style. Then, the lights go out and “Feedback” hits to major heat from the crowd as a spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there. Anderson looks around the Impact Zone, before reaching up into the air and taking his microphone which comes down from the ceiling.

Mr. Anderson: ...

Anderson thinks to himself, before smirking at the crowd and letting go of his microphone, walking down the ramp and to the ring to even more heat. He steps into the squared circle and removes his ‘Pro wrestling is real, people are fake’ T-shirt, looking like he’s going to throw it into the crowd but letting them down again and instead throwing it to the floor on the outside.

Match Four
Mr. Anderson vs. Sean Morley
Singles Match

The bell rings and Mr. Anderson and Sean Morley approach the middle of the ring, locking up. Anderson moves behind Morley and wraps his hands around his waist, but Sean fights out of it with a back elbow to the head. Anderson staggers backwards and Morley turns around, walking towards him but before he can do anything Ken kicks him in the mid-section. Anderson gets him in a standing headlock and Morley pushes him away into the ropes, then running at his opponent but Anderson lifts Morley up and plants him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. Not being tested so far, Anderson stands over Morley with a smirk on his face before hitting him with an Elbow Drop, then making the cover: One! Two! Kick out from Morley. Anderson gets back to his feet and gets Morley up, hitting him with an uppercut which sends him into the corner. The loudmouth walks towards Morley and hits him with some Chops to the chest which get some ‘Wooooo’s from the crowd before he stomps away at his mid-section and puts Morley in a seated position in the corner. Anderson drives his boot into Morley’s throat until the referee Andrew Thomas tells him to step back.

For the next minute, Anderson continues to dominate without Morley getting in any offence, and the end of the match comes when he gets Sean to his feet. Morley tries to fight back with some blows to the mid-section and he then runs off the ropes, heading towards his opponent, but Anderson quickly lifts Morley onto his shoulders and nails him with a Rolling Fireman’s Carry Slam! Anderson sits up and looks around the Impact Zone with a grin on his face before getting to his feet and waiting for Morley to get back up. It takes a while, and Anderson points to his wrist as he tells him to ‘Get your ass up!’ He then gets back up, and Anderson gets him in position, before hitting Morley with the Mic Drop! Anderson then turns Morley over and makes the cover: One! Two! Three!

Mr. Anderson def. Sean Morley at 2:26

“Feedback” hits to heat from the crowd and Mr. Anderson gets to his feet, shoving the referee Dave Hebner aside and reaching up for his microphone which he receives.

Mr. Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen... the winner of the match... the guy who, just four days ago, ended the ‘illustrious’ career of Jeff Jarrett and the guy who’s gonna win his qualifying match next week, go onto Slammiversary, win the King of the Mountain Match and become your new TNA World Heavyweight Champion... MIIISSSTTTAAAAHHH ANNNDDEERRRSSSOONNN!

He then climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring.

Mr. Anderson: ANNNDDEERRRSSSOONNN!

Anderson then lets go of his microphone and climbs down from the second rope, leaving the ring and sauntering up the ramp. On the stage, Anderson motions around his waist that he will be the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion before disappearing behind the curtain.

Mike Tenay: Certainly an impressive victory for Mr. Anderson, we know he has no shortage of confidence and it looks like Anderson considers himself a certainty to qualify for, and win, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary VIII on June 13.

Mick Foley: Who can blame him, Professor? Anderson’s been on a roll lately, and it doesn’t look like slowing down anytime soon.

Mike Tenay: I wouldn’t call brutally attacking Jeff Jarrett ‘on a roll’, Mick, but nonetheless Anderson will be in action next Thursday on Impact against Kazarian in a King of the Mountain Qualifying Match.

Backstage, Christy Hemme is standing by with the TNA X Division Champion ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels.

Christy Hemme: Hi everybody, this is Christy Hemme and standing alongside me is the TNA X Division Champion ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels, who this past Sunday at Sacrifice managed to win the title and become the undisputed X Division Champion against Kazarian-

Christopher Daniels: Whoa, whoa, whoa... managed to beat Kazarian?

Christy looks at Daniels in a confused way.

Christopher Daniels: You obviously must have been watching a match that Kazarian won because y’see, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels doesn’t scrape victories, he gets them convincingly because I am head and shoulders above everybody else in the X Division and I proved that once again to the whole world last Sunday at Sacrifice. So now, I am the undisputed TNA X Division Champion, as if it was ever in doubt.

Heat from the crowd, as Daniels looks at his title over his shoulder and smirks.

Christopher Daniels: Now that Kazarian’s out of the way, it looks like I’ve beaten everybody that there is to beat so-

Daniels stops when Eric Bischoff walks up to him with a frown on his face.

Christopher Daniels: Well, well, well, if it isn’t Eric Bischoff... I bet you’re enjoying the sight of me holding this title, after everything you’ve done to try to keep me away from it, aren’t you?

Eric Bischoff: Believe me, Chris, I have no problem with you being X Division Champion at all... but I came here to tell you that next week there’s gonna be an X Division Gauntlet Match to determine a new #1 contender to your title, so maybe you should enjoy holding that title just a little bit more, huh?

Bischoff smirks before walking away as Daniels looks on, shaking his head. Then, the camera cuts elsewhere where the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles is walking down a corridor in his ring gear and his turquoise hooded jacket with his title strapped around his waist.

Mike Tenay: There you see the TNA World Heavyweight Champion ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles on his way to the ring to take on Kazarian! That match takes place right here on Impact, when we return!

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, “Kaz” plays to cheers from the crowd and Kazarian walks out, posing for the crowd before walking down the ramp. He climbs to the top rope and poses again before climbing down to the mat and waiting in the corner for his opponent. Then, “Get Ready To Fly” blares out to a big pop and AJ Styles stands on the stage with his back turned, showing the logo on the back of his jacket, before spinning around and flicking back his hood, throwing his arms out as his pyro goes off. With his TNA World Heavyweight Championship strapped around his waist, Styles walks down the ramp and enters the ring, posing for the crowd before removing the title from around his waist and passing it out of the ring.

Match Five
AJ Styles vs. Kazarian
Singles Match

The bell rings and AJ Styles and Kazarian approach the middle of the ring, shaking hands as a sign of respect before stepping back and then locking up. Kazarian forces Styles into the corner of the ring, AJ’s back against the turnbuckles, but the referee Dave Hebner steps in and separates them. Kazarian steps back and Styles comes out of the corner, as the two competitors lock up again. Kazarian gets Styles in a headlock and AJ pushes him away into the ropes, Kazarian coming back off them and jumping over AJ who lies on the mat. Kazarian comes back off the ropes again and Styles springs back up to his feet, leapfrogging Kazarian and when he runs off the ropes once more, AJ takes him down with an Arm Drag. The crowd applaud, and Styles holds onto Kazarian’s arm, applying pressure to his bicep, but Kazarian fights out of the predicament with some blows to the head of AJ before getting back to his feet. Kazarian hits Styles with some right hands and runs off the ropes, AJ going for a kick to the mid-section but Kazarian catches his foot and floors the TNA World Heavyweight Champion with an STO.

Kazarian then quickly rebounds off the ropes and hits Styles with a Leg Drop before covering him, One! Two! Right on the count of two, AJ kicks out. Kazarian gets back up and gets Styles to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. Kazarian runs at him and Styles quickly manages to climb out onto the ring apron but Kazarian manages to stop himself from running directly into the turnbuckles in the corner. On the ring apron, AJ jumps onto the ropes looking to go on the attack, but Kazarian hits Styles with a Dropkick and AJ goes face-first into the ring apron, then falling down to the floor on the outside! The fans look in concern as Styles lies on the floor outside the ring and we see a replay of that Dropkick. When we return to the action, Kazarian gets to his feet and sees AJ slowly getting back up on the outside. He looks around the Impact Zone before running off the ropes and sprinting across the ring, going through the ropes and taking out Styles with a Suicide Dive! Both competitors lie on the floor outside the ring as the fans cheer and chant ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’

We see a slow-motion replay of the Suicide Dive before rejoining the action and after several moments, on the referee’s count of seven Kazarian and Styles roll back into the ring and Kazarian makes the cover, One! Two! Kick out from AJ! Kazarian gets back to his feet a few seconds later and gets Styles to his feet, applying a front facelock to ‘The Phenomenal One’ and trying to lift him up for a Suplex but AJ fights back with some blows to the mid-section. Kazarian tries to recover and runs at Styles, going for a Clothesline, but it is ducked and AJ kicks him in the gut when he turns around. Styles gets Kazarian in a gutwrench position, and lifts him up into a Crucifix hold before flipping it forward into the Cliffhanger DDT! AJ turns Kazarian over and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! Kazarian gets the shoulder up! Moments later, Styles gets back up and climbs out onto the ring apron, waiting for his opponent to get to his feet. Kazarian gets back up, and AJ jumps onto the ropes before springboarding off them, flying through the air and hitting Kazarian with a Springboard Flying Forearm Smash!

Styles then makes the cover again, One! Two! Kazarian kicks out again! AJ sits up and glances at the referee before getting back up and taking Kazarian’s legs, turning him over and applying the Stylin’ Crab submission hold. Kazarian writhes in pain, reaching his hands out trying to get to the ropes. He begins to edge across the ring towards the ropes but Styles then brings him back into the middle of the ring, continuing to apply pressure to Kazarian’s legs. After a few more seconds, Kazarian valiantly makes his way towards the ropes once again and this time he makes it to them, holding onto the bottom rope for dear life as AJ is forced to let go by the referee. Kazarian gets back to his feet and Styles waits for him to approach the middle of the ring before running off the ropes, but out of no where Kazarian hits Styles with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex! Both competitors lie next to each other on the mat in the middle of the ring as the crowd in the Impact Zone cheer, chanting both ‘Let’s go, AJ!’ and ‘Let’s go, Kaz!’ Seconds later, Kazarian covers Styles, One! Two! No! AJ gets the shoulder up!

For the next two minutes, Kazarian gets in a fair bit of offence following that Belly-to-Belly Suplex, managing to connect with the Wave of the Future but Styles manages to kick out a split-second before the three count. We rejoin the action after AJ has hit Kazarian with the Pelé Kick and Styles gets to his feet, getting Kazarian up and placing his head in between his legs. AJ outstretches his arms, signalling for the Styles Clash, but Kazarian turns the tables on Styles and lifts him up in a belly-to-back position, but then AJ gets out of it and pulls him down for a pin. Before the cover can be made, Kazarian rolls backwards and gets to his feet, going for a running kick but Styles avoids it and gets back up. Kazarian turns around and runs at him but AJ kicks him in the mid-section, lifts his legs up, hooks his arms, and nails Kazarian with the Styles Clash! Styles then makes the cover: One! Two! Three! It’s all over!

AJ Styles def. Kazarian at 8:48

“Get Ready To Fly” hits again and AJ Styles slowly gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd. Styles is handed his TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt and he holds it up into the air before clutching it closely to his chest, walking towards the corner and leaning back against the ropes. Moments later, AJ helps Kazarian up to his feet and the two embrace before Styles raises his hand in the air to more cheers as a sign of respect for his opponent.

Mike Tenay: What a great match we just saw, ladies and gentlemen, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles picking up the victory against Kazarian in a hard-fought contest.

Mick Foley: Kazarian has nothing to be ashamed of, Professor, he took our World Champion to the limit here tonight, like Jay Lethal did against Rob Van Dam last week so if it’s anything to go by, then the future is definitely bright here in TNA.

Mike Tenay: Coming up next on Impact, we determine the third competitor in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary where Styles’ title will be on the line as ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy faces ‘The Icon’ Sting for the first time ever!

The camera cuts backstage, where Sting has just walked out of the locker room holding his black leather jacket over his shoulder.

Sting: Jeff Hardy versus Sting, first time ever... sounds good to me. But after the match, whether I win or lose, I have an announcement to make.

Sting then puts his jacket on.

Sting: Right now, though... it’s showtime.

‘The Icon’ then walks away, as 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, where we are just moments away from our main event of the evening, but during the commercial break we received information concerning the King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches.

Mick Foley: We sure did, Mike. Next week, it will be Mr. Anderson facing ‘The Freak’ Rob Terry and also ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle, who came so close to becoming TNA World Heavyweight Champion this past Sunday at Sacrifice, will go one-on-one against ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan!

Then, “Modest” hits to cheers from the crowd and the lights go out in the Impact Zone as green lasers shoot off from the stage. Jeff Hardy makes his way out and indulges in some unorthodox theatrics before striding down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and then sliding under the ropes into the ring. Hardy gets back to his feet and walks towards the corner, climbing to the second rope and posing for the crowd before climbing back down. Then, “Slay Me” blares out to a big pop from the crowd and with the lights still out, Sting walks through the curtain, pointing his baseball bat to the cheering fans. He then shouts ‘Wooooooo!’ before walking down the ramp and stepping into the ring, removing his black leather jacket and placing his bat in the corner.

Match Six
Jeff Hardy vs. Sting
King of the Mountain Qualifying Match

The bell rings and Jeff Hardy and Sting approach the middle of the ring, having a stare-down and exchanging words before both stepping back and cautiously circling each other around the ring. After a few moments, they finally lock up and Sting wrenches Hardy’s arm around, getting him in a wristlock. He tries to bend Jeff’s wrist back as far as it will go but Hardy pulls Sting forward and goes to ground, taking him down with a drop toe hold. Jeff quickly moves around to a position in front of Sting and tries to get him in a headlock but before he can, Sting frantically crawls away and gets back to his feet, as does Jeff. Then, both competitors run directly towards each other and begin to trade right hands back and forth until Hardy gains the upper hand in the exchange and runs off the ropes behind him. Jeff comes back running towards Sting, but ‘The Icon’ floors him with a Shoulder Block followed by an Elbow Drop across Hardy’s throat. Sting then makes the cover, One! Kick out from Jeff. Sting gets back up and quickly gets Hardy back to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring.

Sting runs towards him but Jeff hits him with a boot to the face, stopping the veteran in his tracks. ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ then Irish whips him into the corner and begins to unload on Sting with right hands until he is in a seated position. Hardy takes a few steps back before running up and holding onto the ropes, jumping up into the air, and hitting Sting with the Hardyac Arrest Dropkick! Jeff rolls backwards and drags Sting by his legs into the middle of the ring, subsequently making the cover, One! Two! Sting kicks out. Hardy gets back to his feet and gets Sting up, hitting him with some right hands before Irish whipping him into the ropes and ducking down in preparation for a Back Body Drop. However, when Sting comes back off the ropes he hits Jeff with a kick to the face which makes him stand up straight and ‘The Icon’ follows it up with an Inverted Atomic Drop. Sting kicks Hardy in the mid-section and gets him in a front facelock, hitting him with a Suplex. He then makes the cover, One! Two! Jeff kicks out. Sting gets back to his feet and gets Hardy up, hitting him with some Chops to the chest which are met with ‘Wooooo’s from the fans.

Sting Irish whips Jeff into the ropes and then runs towards him, Clotheslining Hardy over the ropes and out of the ring down to the floor. After taking a breather, Sting climbs out onto the ring apron and waits for Jeff to get back up. When he gets back to his feet, Sting jumps off the ring apron and hits Hardy with a Double Axehandle! Jeff falls back down to the concrete floor but after a few seconds Sting gets him back up and lifts him back into the ring, making the cover as soon as he re-enters the squared circle himself, One! Two! Hardy kicks out! Sting gets back to his feet and grabs Jeff’s legs, trying to lock in the Scorpion Death Lock... but Hardy kicks Sting away! Jeff gets back up and as Sting recovers he runs towards him but Hardy takes him down with a Clothesline. ‘The Icon’ gets back to his feet again and runs at Jeff but tastes another Clothesline, and when he gets back up once more, Hardy goes for a kick to the mid-section. Sting catches his leg, but Jeff manages to spin around and hit Sting with a Mule Kick! Hardy covers, One! Two! Sting gets the shoulder up!

Jeff gets back up and gets Sting to his feet, kicking him in the mid-section and getting him in a front facelock. Hardy lifts ‘The Icon’ into the air and hits an Inverted Sitout Suplex Slam before making another cover, One! Two! Sting gets the shoulder up again! Jeff looks at the referee Earl Hebner before getting back up again and waiting for Sting to get up. When he does, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ runs forward and runs up the turnbuckles to the top rope but Sting leans into the ropes and causes Jeff to lose his balance, falling down into a Tree of Woe position in the corner! Sting backs into the opposite corner and looks around the Impact Zone, before running across the ring and hitting the upside-down Hardy with a Baseball Slide to the temple! Jeff falls down to the mat and Sting, who is starting to feel fatigued, slowly pulls Hardy by his arms into the middle of the ring before making the cover, One! Two! Jeff gets the shoulder up! Moments later, Sting gets back up and gets Hardy to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner. Sting walks towards him and hits Jeff with some knife-edge Chops to the chest and some right hands before backing into the opposite corner.

Sting shouts ‘Woooooo!’ to the crowd before running across the ring, and hitting Hardy with the Stinger Splash! Jeff falls down face-first to the mat and Sting turns him over onto his back, hooking the legs and making the cover, could this be it? One! Two! Three-No! Hardy gets the shoulder up a split-second before the count of three! Sting sits up with a look of disbelief on his face and looks at the referee Earl Hebner who holds up two fingers to him signalling the count. He then gets back to his feet, but falls back down to the mat in exhaustion. Moments later, Sting gets back up again with assistance from the ropes and waits for Hardy to get back up. When he does, Sting grabs him and Irish whips Jeff into the corner, but Hardy runs up the turnbuckles to the top rope and hits Sting with the Whisper In The Wind! Jeff lands on top of ‘The Icon’, and the cover is made! One! Two! Three-No! Sting manages to kick out! The fans are torn as to who to support in this contest, with some chanting ‘Let’s go, Hardy!’ and others chanting ‘Let’s go, Sting!’

Approximately a minute and a half later, Sting is in control after a spell of dominance from Hardy following his Whisper In The Wind but Jeff has just managed to get to the ropes after being locked in the Scorpion Death Lock. Sting eagerly waits for Hardy to get to his feet, and when he does Sting turns Jeff around to face him, lifting him up in a Scoop Slam position presumably to transition it into the Scorpion Death Drop. However, Jeff lands on his feet behind Sting, slipping off his shoulders, and when Sting turns around Hardy kicks him in the mid-section and nails him with the Twist of Fate! Jeff lies on the mat next to Sting and moments later Hardy gets back to his feet, slowly climbing to the top rope. Hardy poses for the crowd, before hitting Sting with the Swanton Bomb! An exhausted Hardy lands on top of Sting, and the cover is made straight away! One! Two! Three! It’s over!

Jeff Hardy def. Sting at 9:17

“Modest” blares out to cheers from the crowd and Jeff Hardy gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee Earl Hebner. Hardy staggers towards the corner and climbs to the second rope, posing for the crowd and motioning around his waist that he is the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp. Meanwhile, moments later Sting struggles to his feet and calls for a microphone which he receives from SoCal Val.

Sting: Earlier tonight... I said that regardless of whether I won or lost I would have an announcement to make after the match, and here we are so here it is. June 13 is the night of Slammiversary VIII, the eight-year celebration of TNA Wrestling.

Cheers from the crowd.

Sting: Eight years which I like to think I’ve been a big part of. But June 13 will not only be the eight-year celebration of TNA... it will be the twenty-five year celebration of my career.

Mixed reaction.

Sting: Because at Slammiversary, although it won’t be in the King of the Mountain Match, I will be competing... but it will be in my last match.

Another mixed reaction from the crowd, with some chanting ‘Please don’t go!’

Sting: Over the past few months, it has become clear to me that my career is winding down. I lost to Mr. Anderson at Lockdown, I was eliminated from the #1 Contender’s Tournament last month and tonight I missed my chance to be in the King of the Mountain Match. And now is the best time for me to retire, because since the day I walked into TNA for the first time, I’ve known that this is the place where I wanna end my career because this is the best professional wrestling company in the world, and it has the best fans in the world too.

Big pop from the crowd, with some ‘TNA!’ chants.

Sting: So now-

Sting is cut off when “Catholifunk” hits and the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero walks out to a big pop from the crowd. Wearing a white suit and shades, Dinero walks down the ramp with a swagger in his step, entering the ring and taking a microphone before coming face-to-face with Sting.

D’Angelo Dinero: So this is it, huh? ‘The Icon’ is hanging up the boots for good.

Sting nods his head.

D’Angelo Dinero: Pope can’t believe it. I’ve told you this plenty of times before but Stinger, you are one of the reasons Pope got into this game, you are one of the reasons Pope worked his ass off to become TNA Global Champion and you are one of the reasons that I am the charismatic... pimptacular... hand-clappin’, foot tappin’, pimp-slappin’, blingin’ attire, always on fire, Pope that is D’Angelo Dinero!

Cheers from the crowd.

D’Angelo Dinero: But... Pope didn’t come out here and interrupt you just to say that. Y’see, you said your match at Slammiversary would be your last one, is Pope correct?

Sting: That’s right, Pope.

D’Angelo Dinero: And as far as I know... you don’t have an opponent for Slammiversary yet. You know where this is going, don’t ya’?

The crowd certainly do, and they cheer.

D’Angelo Dinero: Sting, you’ve faced some of the top guys on the TNA roster today. Styles... Hardy... Anderson... Wolfe... but daddy, you’ve never played the game with Pope!

Dinero points his finger at Sting, who looks at it before looking back at him eye-to-eye.

D’Angelo Dinero: So if The Congregation wanna see Pope versus Sting at Slammiversary, can Pope get an Amen?

‘AMEN!’

D’Angelo Dinero: Well, Stinger... The Congregation have spoken. So how about it? Pope and Sting, one-on-one... Slammiversary.

Dinero extends his hand to Sting and the crowd in the Impact Zone explode, chanting ‘Shake his hand!’ repeatedly. Sting looks around for a few moments... before shaking Dinero’s hand! Dinero grins, and the two release their grip.

Sting: You’ve got it, Pope.

Dinero nods his head before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, but when he reaches the stage Sting speaks again.

Sting: But... if you think that you’re scoring yourself an easy victory over me just because it’s my last match... then you’ve got another thing coming, my friend. Because at Slammiversary, Pope...

Dinero looks on expectantly.

Sting: ... IT’S SHOWTIME!

Sting puts down the microphone, and Impact comes to a close with a long-distance staredown between Dinero and Sting, who will clash at Slammiversary in Sting’s final match...

Mike Tenay: What a turn of events we have just seen, ladies and gentlemen! ‘The Icon’ Sting announces he is going to retire at Slammiversary after a twenty-five year career, ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero comes out, says he wants to be Sting’s last opponent, and Dinero gets that opportunity! Thanks for joining us tonight everybody for TNA Thursday Night Impact, and we’ll see you right here at the same time next week on Spike!

It seems like interest has dwindled in this thread lately, but I'm really enjoying writing this thread at the moment, despite the pace of the thread slowing down, so it's not something that bothers me much. Anyways, here are some news and notes and the Impact preview, the show is done and will be posted tomorrow. It is in a shorter format, with recapped matches and no commentary simply because I don't feel like writing as much now and I enjoyed writing the show in its new format.

TNA Newswire

- Hulk Hogan will not be on the next two episodes of Impact, due to going into hospital for back surgery following the taping of last week's show. The next two shows were taped the following day and the day after that, so Hogan will not be present but he could be back for the June 10 Impact, the last show before Slammiversary, which will be LIVE as announced on the TNA website yesterday.

- TNA has officially come to an agreement with Versus to air Xplosion every Sunday night at 10/9CT, starting the week after Slammiversary. The show will give wrestlers not regularly featuring on Impact to get airtime, and to recap the Impact preceding the program.

- Hernandez's feud with Matt Morgan is expected to end with a match between the two at Slammiversary, and after that he could reunite the Latin American Exchange with Homicide on a full-time basis. They temporarily reunited from the Impact after Lockdown to Sacrifice, but after Slammiversary if they do start teaming regularly again they are expected to be involved in the TNA World Tag Team Championship scene.

- Kevin Nash is all but retired from in-ring competition now, it seems. He is still with the company though and could possibly stick around on-screen as manager of Eric Young who he teamed with at Sacrifice.

- The first Impact back on Thursday nights last week, also the first show after Sacrifice, got a 1.2 rating.





TNA Thursday Night Impact Preview
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 27, 2010

With Slammiversary just over two weeks away, TNA Wrestling brings to you two more hours of the best professional wrestling of the week with Thursday Night Impact, only on Spike at 9/8CT!

Last week on the first Impact back on Thursday nights, 'The Icon' Sting announced to the world that he was going to retire from wrestling for good... after one more match at Slammiversary. Immediately, the TNA Global Champion 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero stepped up and said he wanted to face Sting in his last match, and the veteran accepted which made it official: At Slammiversary, Sting will compete in his last-ever match against D'Angelo Dinero. This week, Sting has a different challenge in the form of Rob Van Dam, a match that we have never seen before. Who will prevail in this unprecedented encounter between two legends of professional wrestling?

The last two spots in the TNA World Heavyweight Championship King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary will be filled, as Mr. Anderson faces 'The Freak' Rob Terry and 'The Olympic Gold Medallist' Kurt Angle takes on 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan! Which two men will seal their ticket to the eight-year celebration of TNA Wrestling?

'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels will defend his TNA X Division Championship at Slammiversary, but against who? We will determine his challenger this week, in a 10-Man X Division Gauntlet Match! Eliminations will be made by being thrown over the top rope until it comes down to the final two. Then, the winner of the match will be determined via pinfall or submission. Daniels will certainly be watching, will you?

Generation Me face Team 3D in tag team action, and if Max and Jeremy Buck win they will challenge The Motor City Machine Guns for the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Slammiversary on June 13! However, could their illustrious opponents ruin their plans?

Also, Tara faces The Beautiful People's Madison Rayne, with the only thing on Tara's mind being regaining her TNA Knockouts Championship from Daffney! See all of this and more this Thursday at 9/8CT on Spike!

Confirmed For Impact:
Rob Van Dam vs. Sting
Kurt Angle vs. Matt Morgan
Mr. Anderson vs. Rob Terry
#1 Contender's X Division Gauntlet Match
Generation Me vs. Team 3D
Madison Rayne vs. Tara

TNA Thursday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
May 27, 2010


Impact opens with a video package recapping last week’s episode, showing Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff’s announcement of the King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches and highlights of Samoa Joe defeating Hernandez thanks to interference from Matt Morgan and Jeff Hardy toppling Sting in the main event. We then see Sting’s announcement of his retirement and D’Angelo Dinero coming out to challenge Sting to a match at Slammiversary, which is accepted. The video comes to an end with Dinero and Sting standing face-to-face in the middle of the ring.

Then, the opening credits play and “Change Me” blares out as the camera cuts into the Impact Zone. The pyro display takes place on the stage whilst the camera pans the fans in the building before cutting to the announce table on the left hand side of the stage where Mike Tenay and Mick Foley are sat, ready to welcome us to tonight’s not live broadcast! Tenay and Foley welcome us to Impact and run through tonight’s card, with Rob Van Dam facing Sting and the two final King of the Mountain Qualifying Matches taking place.

“Whole F’n Show” hits to cheers from the crowd and Rob Van Dam walks out wearing a T-shirt over his ring gear, raising his hands in the air as his pyro goes off. RVD walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before entering the ring and posing again. He then takes a microphone from SoCal Val and waits for his ovation from the crowd to die down before speaking.

Rob Van Dam: First off, since last week I’ve been getting a lot of people asking me, ‘Hey Rob, why aren’t you in the King of the Mountain Qualifiers?’ so I’m gonna tell all of you.

Van Dam strokes his stubbly jaw for a few moments before speaking.

Rob Van Dam: Hulk Hogan told you all last week that I withdrew myself from the Qualifiers, and there is one reason and one reason only for that... and that reason is Desmond Wolfe.

Major heat at the mention of Wolfe.

Rob Van Dam: I mean, I would have loved to be in the King of the Mountain Match, it’s my kind of match, but Desmond, you screwed me out of a victory at Sacrifice and I’m not gonna let it slide. I’ve had to deal with you for over three months now but until I kick your ass and beat you in the process, because I did kick your ass at Sacrifice... we’re not gonna be done. You all know RVD, I’m a pretty laid-back guy, but I’m not feeling like that right now.

Rob shakes his head to further his statement.

Rob Van Dam: The fact of the matter is, I should have walked out of Sacrifice with a victory, but I didn’t, and that pisses me off, it frustrates me. Desmond, mark my words... you’ll be wishing you let our differences come to an end because you’ve made me feel like I haven’t felt in a very long time, and that’s a bad thing for you.

Cheers from the crowd.

Rob Van Dam: I’m not gonna stop until you’re not able to stand on your own two feet... which is why I have a challenge for you.

More cheers.

Rob Van Dam: Slammiversary, Desmond...

Van Dam is cut off by cheers from the crowd and an ‘RVD!’ chant.

Rob Van Dam: Slammiversary, I want it to come to an end. I want you in a match where neither of us will have any excuses... and neither of us will be the same again after it. No pinfalls, no submissions, no disqualifications, no count-outs... just you and me, tearing each other apart until one of us... can’t answer the count of ten.

Big pop from the crowd, knowing what Van Dam is challenging Wolfe to.

Rob Van Dam: Desmond, I want you... in a Last Man Standing Match.

The Impact Zone erupts with cheers, as RVD slowly nods his head.

Rob Van Dam: Slammiversary is gonna be the eight-year celebration of TNA... but what I’m gonna do to you is gonna feel like a lifetime... that’s if you have the balls to accept.

‘Ohhhh’s from the crowd.

Rob Van Dam: If you do, Desmond... then you let me know by the end of the night.

Van Dam drops the microphone and leaves the ring as ‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out to cheers from the crowd. RVD walks up the ramp, high-fiving some fans, and when he is on the stage he performs his thumb taunt before disappearing behind the curtain. Mike Tenay and Mick Foley discuss what we just saw and speculate whether Wolfe will accept or not, the popular opinion being that he will.

Backstage, Team 3D are stood outside their locker room, talking to the cameraman.

Brother Ray: I’m glad that Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff have finally found the sense to give us a match on Impact, because it seems like me and Devon have been forgotten around here so tonight, we’re gonna remind the world exactly why we are the most illustrious tag team in this business!

The camera shows Devon grinning, before going back to Ray.

Brother Ray: Generation Me are apparently gonna get a Tag Team Title shot at Slammiversary if they beat us tonight well they can forget about it because we’re pretty pissed off that we haven’t been on Impact in a while and we need two guys to beat the crap out of... so Generation Me, that’s you.

Brother Devon: Oh my brother, TESTIFY!

The duo then walk away, as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


When Impact returns, “Watch Out, Watch Out” hits and Team 3D walk out, both posing as their pyro goes off. Ray and Devon walk down the ramp side by side and enter the ring, standing in the corner as they wait for their opponents. Then, “My Generation” blares out to a pop from the crowd and Generation Me make their way out, posing next to each other before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans, and simultaneously sliding under the ropes into the ring. They both pose again before getting ready, as Mike Posey calls for the bell and the match gets underway.

Match One
Generation Me vs. Team 3D
Tag Team Match

We get a little bit of everything in this match, with Generation Me performing several high-flying maneuvers, Team 3D utilizing their usual ground-and-pound style and both brotherly duos unsurprisingly showing great teamwork. In the opening stages of the contest the veterans Brother Ray and Brother Devon have the upper hand over their younger and smaller opponents, Ray slowing down the pace of the bout against Max who started the match against Devon but Ray was tagged in. Both Max and Jeremy remain resilient when they are on the backfoot and it pays off, with Max dodging a Clothesline and knocking Ray down with a Dropkick before Clotheslining Devon off the ring apron. Generation Me begin to tag in and out to try to keep the fresh man in at all times, but when Devon is tagged in he regains control for the team and begins to isolate Jeremy, not letting him tag out to his brother. 3D come close to winning after they hit the Whassup, but Jeremy valiantly gets the shoulder up.

It doesn’t put Ray and Devon off track though, and Devon continues to dominate until Jeremy manages to hit a Tilt-a-whirl Headscissors Takedown and tags Max in. Max quickens the pace of the contest for a while, coming in and immediately building up some solid momentum for the tandem which lasts almost until the end of the match. Speaking of which, it comes when Max barely manages to lift Ray onto his shoulders, looking to go for a Running Fireman’s Carry Slam which is normally followed by the Bang For Your Buck. However, Ray’s weight proves to be too much and he slips off Max’s shoulders, then rolling him up with a Schoolboy, grabbing the tights, for the victory as Devon keeps Jeremy out of the ring!

Team 3D def. Generation Me at 5:33

“Watch Out, Watch Out” plays to a mixed reaction and Ray lets go of Max’s tights, rolling out of the ring and being greeted by his brother Devon. They make their way around the ring and up the ramp, Ray saying to the camera ‘Nice guys finish last’ on the stage before disappearing behind the curtain. In the ring, Jeremy helps Max to his feet and they look on in disdain, having been cheated out of a victory and a TNA World Tag Team Championship match at Slammiversary here tonight.

Backstage, Matt Morgan is stood in a dark, narrow corridor wearing a T-shirt over his ring gear, speaking to the camera which is set behind a cage fence but not looking directly towards it, instead gazing into the distance.

Matt Morgan: I just don’t understand. I should have been done with Hernandez a long time ago, Destination X to be exact, when I kicked his head off.

Morgan pauses and grins, recalling that moment, before speaking again.

Matt Morgan: But yet, everybody still associates me, ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan, with Hernandez. It just doesn’t add up, and that’s something even you can understand. I mean, there’s me, a 7-foot 310 pound monster who is capable of anything and everything... and then there’s Hernandez, some stocky, taco-eating, bald loser. But now, that unfortunate chapter of my career is behind me because Hernandez’s last chance to make himself worth a damn was last week, and he blew it! Nobody else to blame! I, on the other hand, am going to beat Kurt Angle tonight, go onto the King of the Mountain Match... and become your TNA World... Heavyweight... Champion.

‘The Blueprint’ laughs to himself before walking away, as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, Christy Hemme is standing by with AJ Styles.

Christy Hemme: I’m standing with the TNA World Heavyweight Champion ‘The Phenomenal’ AJ Styles who in just over 2 weeks’ time will be defending his title in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary against 4 other men. How do you feel about that challenge, AJ?

AJ Styles: You would think I’m not looking forward to having to defend this belt against 4 other guys in the King of the Mountain Match... but I cannot wait for Slammiversary. I feel like all of the fans do, it’s gonna be a big night, the 8-year anniversary of the best wrestling company in the world, TNA Wrestling!

Cheap pop.

AJ Styles: I’m the kind of guy who wants to wrestle and put on a clinic when doing so every single week, and I’ve only had, what, three matches in just over a month? I wanna do what I do best all the time, and that’s steal the show.

Cheers from the crowd.

AJ Styles: Sitting back here and just watching just ain’t good enough for me. But the longer I wait, the more my mind is set on Slammiversary and that’s what I need to be thinking about, ‘cause I eat, sleep and breathe those kind of nights. I worked my ass off to win this title, it represents everything I’ve sacrificed for this company, and on the eight-year anniversary of TNA, the company that I’ve been a major part of from day one, the company that I built from the ground up... I’m not gonna let it be taken away from me.

Styles hoists the belt back over his shoulder before walking away to cheers from the crowd.

The camera then cuts into the Impact Zone and Madison Rayne is already in the ring as “Angel On My Shoulder” fades out on the P.A. System. Then, “Broken” blares out and Tara walks out to a pop from the crowd, holding her pet Spider Poison in its cage. She storms down the ramp and puts her Spider in the corner before sliding into the ring and impatiently waiting for the bell to ring.

Match Two
Madison Rayne vs. Tara
Singles Match

With Tara in the hunt for the TNA Knockouts Championship and Madison Rayne, well not, the result of this match was obvious right from when the bell rang. Rayne tries her best, and gets in a respectable amount of offence, but overall Tara is dominant throughout the contest and eventually puts Rayne out of her misery by hitting the Widow’s Peak and then making the cover to pick up the expected victory.

Tara def. Madison Rayne at 3:19

Slick Johnson raises Tara’s hand in the air to cheers from the crowd but soon after, she pulls away to request and take a microphone from SoCal Val.

Tara: Daffney! You know you cheated to beat me at Sacrifice and you shouldn’t be holding my TNA Knockouts Championship, so get your ass out here right now!

Moments later, “Psychotic” hits and Daffney walks out with a grin on her face, holding her TNA Knockouts Championship belt over her shoulder.

Daffney: Are you saying you want a rematch, Tara?

Tara: If you’re willing to lose your title, then yeah, I am.

Daffney cackles to herself, before speaking.

Daffney: ... you can have your rematch, Tara, and you can have it at Slammiversary...

Cheers from the crowd, as Tara nods her head.

Daffney: ... on one condition.

Tara mouths ‘What’s that?’

Daffney: If I’m going to put my TNA Knockouts Championship on the line, Tara, then you must put something of yours on the line too... your Spider, Poison.

The crowd boo, and Tara looks confused as to why Daffney wants her to put Poison on the line, but after a few moments she gives her answer to the Champ.

Tara: ... you’re on.

“Broken” plays and Daffney and Tara have a long-distance staredown with Daffney smirking and Tara scowling. The camera zooms in on the TNA Knockouts Championship over Daffney’s shoulder before cutting away.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, Consequences Creed, Kiyoshi, Shannon Moore, Sheik Abdul Bashir and Suicide are already in the ring. “Red Remix” hits to a pop from the crowd and Amazing Red walks out, making his signature hand gesture before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. Then, “Symphony Plan” plays and Brian Kendrick walks out, storming down the ramp and throwing off his white jacket before entering the ring. “LethalX” blares out and Jay Lethal walks out with a smile on his face, pumping his fists as he walks down the ramp before stepping into the ring. “Kaz” hits and Kazarian walks through the curtain to cheers from the crowd, posing before jogging down the ramp and sliding into the ring. Then, “Sugar” plays to little reaction but the fans go wild when SHANE HELMS walks out for the first time in TNA, throwing his arm into the air as his pyro goes off! Shane Helms is in TNA! Helms walks down the ramp as the commentators immediately talk about him and his shocking debut, high-fiving some fans, and enters the ring, standing next to his buddy Moore and briefly embracing with him before the bell rings for the match to get underway.

Match Three
Amazing Red vs. Brian Kendrick vs. Consequences Creed vs. Jay Lethal vs. Kazarian vs. Kiyoshi vs. Shane Helms vs. Shannon Moore vs. Sheik Abdul Bashir vs. Suicide
X Division #1 Contender’s Gauntlet Match

The huge reaction from the crowd for Shane Helms’ emergence gives this match an extra lift with the fans well into it and seemingly firmly behind Helms. The rules of this match are that eliminations are made by throwing competitors over the top rope and out of the ring until it is down to two, and then the winner is determined via pinfall. Nobody is eliminated in the first minute of the match until Sheik Abdul Bashir is thrown out of the ring by the debutant Helms, and after that the next to be eliminated is Suicide by Consequences Creed. After about two and a half minutes, Shannon Moore is eliminated by his good friend Helms and Kiyoshi is the next to go, courtesy of a Tilt-a-Whirl Headscissors Takedown from Amazing Red. After an impressive showing in the contest, Creed is eliminated by his tag team partner Jay Lethal. Kendrick is eliminated in a double-team effort by Lethal and Red, and Kendrick is then eliminated by Kazarian. We’re now down to the final four; Helms, Kazarian, Lethal and Red.

Kazarian goes for Helms whilst Lethal and Red fight each other, and Red is eliminated by a Dropkick over the ropes from Lethal. With three left in the match now, Kazarian hits Lethal with the Wave Of The Future but immediately after that Kazarian is thrown out of the ring by Helms! It is now down to the final two in the match, Helms and Lethal. Jay takes a while to get back up after being hit with the Wave Of The Future and when he gets back up Helms immediately tries to get him in position for the Nightmare On Helms Street but Lethal turns it inside out and hits the Lethal Combination! After that, Lethal takes control in the match and the crowd are now split as to who to support, cheering for both Helms and Lethal. The end of the match comes when Lethal goes for the Lethal Injection but Helms flips back in the air and lands on his feet behind Lethal, then getting him in position and nailing the Nightmare On Helms Street! The cover is then made, One! Two! Three! Helms has done it!

Shane Helms wins the X Division #1 Contender’s Gauntlet Match at 8:20

Helms gets to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee Andrew Thomas. Helms climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring and celebrates, making a title motion around his waist before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, high-fiving some fans on his way to the stage. Helms poses for the crowd once more before disappearing behind the curtain.

Backstage, Jeremy Borash is standing by with Kurt Angle.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m standing with ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle who tonight will face ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan for the opportunity to compete in the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary. You have a big task ahead of you tonight, your thoughts?

Kurt Angle: JB, I’m not thinking about the task ahead of me tonight. I’m thinking about the task ahead of me at Slammiversary. Sure, Matt Morgan’s a pretty big guy, 7 foot, 310 pounds, I know... but I’ve beaten him before, last year at Bound For Glory to be exact, and you can bet your ass I’m gonna do it again tonight.

Cheers from the crowd.

Kurt Angle: I’ve won two King of the Mountain Matches, and after I win tonight and go onto Slammiversary, I’m gonna win a third one, something nobody else has ever done in TNA. Oh, it’s real... it’s DAMN real!

Angle walks away to a big pop, as we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “Freak Out” hits to a lukewarm pop from the crowd and Rob Terry walks out, storming down the ramp and entering the ring, climbing to the second rope in the corner and flexing his muscles before climbing back down. Then, “Feedback” plays and the lights go out in the Impact Zone. When a spotlight shines down on the stage, Mr. Anderson is standing there with a ‘Wrestling is real, people are fake’ T-shirt, getting major heat from the crowd. Anderson then reaches into the air and takes his microphone which comes down from the ceiling.

Mr. Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen... I weighed in this morning at 246 pounds... I hail from Green - Bay - Wisconsin... MIIIISSTTTAAAHHHH ANNNDDEERRSSOONNN!

Anderson looks around once more, before saying...

Mr. Anderson: ANNNDDEERRSSOONNN!

He then lets go of his microphone and saunters down the ramp, stepping into the ring and removing his T-shirt before standing in the corner opposite Terry.

Match Four
Mr. Anderson vs. Rob Terry
King of the Mountain Qualifying Match

Both men are focused on this match with the penultimate place in the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary on the line, and in the opening stages it is Terry who can be considered the underdog in this contest despite his superior size, in control. Throughout the contest, the Welshman’s moves aren’t anything spectacular but they do a good enough job in wearing down Anderson, who resorts to bending the rules on a few occasions with eyerakes and not breaking holds until just before the referee’s count of five. As the match progresses, the two competitors go back and forth with neither of them gaining a clear advantage over the other for too long until they lose it, but Terry builds up some decent momentum with a few Clotheslines capped off with a Powerslam. ‘The Freak’ makes a near fall after it, only for Anderson to kick out on the count of two.

The conclusion to this high-stakes match comes when Anderson is trying to take a turnbuckle off in the corner with Terry down on the mat but the referee stops him. As the ref puts it back on, Anderson goes to another corner and takes the turnbuckle off, throwing it out of the ring! However, Terry then recovers and attacks his loudmouth opponent from behind, hitting him with half a dozen right hands before lifting him onto his right shoulder. Terry runs towards the corner where the exposed steel is, looking to go for the Snake Eyes, but Anderson slips off his shoulders and drives Terry forward into the steel! Ken then turns him around and connects with the Mic Drop, followed by the cover: One! Two! Three! Anderson is headed to Slammiversary!

Mr. Anderson def. Rob Terry at 6:04

Anderson gets back to his feet, yelling at the referee to raise his hand which he was going to do anyway so that renders his request pointless. Anderson then pulls away and stands in the middle of the ring, wiping some sweat from his forehead before reaching into the air and taking his microphone which comes down from the ceiling of the Impact Zone as the music stops.

Mr. Anderson: The winner of the match... the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion... MIIISSTTAAAHHH ANNNDDEEERRSSSOONNN!!!

He walks to the corner of the ring and climbs to the second rope.

Mr. Anderson: ANNNDDEEERRSSSOONNN!!!

The music starts again and Anderson lets go of his microphone, leaving the ring and walking up the ramp with a smirk on his face before disappearing behind the curtain. Tenay and Foley talk about Anderson and say that out of those who have qualified so far, Anderson has to be near the top of the list of favourites to win the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary.

Backstage, Generation Me are walking down a corridor backstage, both still looking tired after their loss earlier tonight against Team 3D. The two are confronted by the TNA World Tag Team Champions, The Motor City Machine Guns who have their belts with them.

Chris Sabin: Tough break tonight, guys.

Both Max and Jeremy nod their heads in agreement with Sabin.

Alex Shelley: Yeah, 3D robbed you out there and you probably think that now you’re not getting a title shot at Slammiversary but after what happened earlier me and Chris think you should be given another chance to win a title shot.

Chris Sabin: Next week, you can have another match which if you win, you’ll have us at Slammiversary. How does that sound?

Max Buck: Sounds great... thanks, guys.

???: Sounds great to me too.

All four men turn their heads to the right hand side of the screen where Team 3D are standing.

Brother Ray: It’ll be our honour to face you two little punks next week and kick your asses again just like we did tonight, but hey, ‘Machine Guns.

Alex Shelley: What?

Brother Ray: Seeing as you’re handing out countless opportunities to these guys to win themselves a title shot... how about you do the same for us too? Next week, us and them, winners get a shot at the titles at Slammiversary. Deal?

Chris Sabin: Deal.

Ray and Devon then turn to face Max and Jeremy.

Jeremy Buck: How about next week, you try and beat us without having to cheat, huh?

The two veterans laugh at Jeremy’s statement before walking away as we go to another...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “Sleeping Giant” hits to heat from the crowd and Matt Morgan walks out, his face covered by his navy blue silk robe. Morgan throws off his robe and throws his arms into the air as his pyro goes off before the giant walks down the ramp with a cocky swagger in his step, stepping into the ring. Then, “Gold Metal” plays and the lights go out in the Impact Zone as the crowd begin to cheer. Kurt Angle ascends up to the stage and throws his arms into the air as his pyro goes off. Wearing a blue T-shirt and dog tags, Angle walks down the ramp and enters the ring, posing again before removing his entrance attire. Dave Hebner then calls for the bell to begin the match.

Match Five
Kurt Angle vs. Matt Morgan
King of the Mountain Qualifying Match

Matt Morgan clearly has the size and weight advantage over his opponent Kurt Angle in this match, but Angle has beaten Morgan before and the way he starts this contest makes it seem like he could well do it again here, moving behind him after locking up and taking the giant down by his legs. Throughout this contest it becomes apparent that Angle’s game-plan is to cut the 7-foot, 310 pound Morgan down to size, targeting his legs frequently but Morgan knows what ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ is trying to do. He manages to avoid many of Angle’s attempted attacks to the legs and uses his size and strength advantage for his benefit, even dropping Kurt on his back from a Sidewalk Slam position outside the ring on the concrete floor. Morgan tries to get a count-out victory following that, but the resilient Angle manages to get back in the ring afterwards.

Morgan continues to dominate his veteran opponent for the next couple of minutes, but Angle manages to build up some offence with some right hands to ‘The Blueprint’, and when Morgan goes for a Clothesline Angle ducks it and hits Morgan with his trademark three German Suplexes which puts Kurt in control of the contest and takes him one step closer to the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary. The conclusion to the match comes when Morgan is back in control and he waits for Angle to get back up. When he does get back to his feet, Morgan is about to run across the ring but he sees his rival Hernandez walk out onto the stage. Morgan is distracted and he yells at Hernandez, saying ‘Watch this’ before going for the Carbon Footprint but Angle somehow catches his foot and turns it into an Ankle Lock! With Hernandez watching, Morgan desperately tries to escape but can’t, so he taps out and Angle wins!

Kurt Angle def. Matt Morgan at 8:27

Hernandez says ‘Yeah, I saw that’ before disappearing behind the curtain as Angle has his hand raised by the referee to a pop from the crowd. He then walks towards the corner of the ring and climbs to the second rope. posing for the crowd before motioning around his waist that he is going to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary, and subsequently leaving the ring, high-fiving fans as he walks up the ramp. The commentators say that Angle should be considered the favourite to win the King of the Mountain Match, having won two of them in the past.

Backstage, Shane Helms is walking around with his friend Shannon Moore, as Moore is supposedly introducing Helms to numerous TNA wrestlers. Amazing Red, Consequences Creed, Jay Lethal and Kazarian are all around, and Helms exchanges pleasantries with all of them but when he turns around, the TNA X Division Champion and Helms’ Slammiversary opponent, ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels, is standing there and he doesn’t look impressed.

Christopher Daniels: Well, well, well, if it isn’t the great Shane Helms... oh wait, I must be thinking of somebody else because you’re not great.

Shane Helms: How long have you had that one planned for, Daniels?

Christopher Daniels: I’m the X Division Champion, all I spend time doing is being the best. As for you, Shane... I hope you’re looking forward to Slammiversary. Because honestly, at an event as big as it, I thought I’d get a worthy opponent, y’know, somebody who isn’t here because they got fired.

Helms laughs off Daniels’ comment.

Christopher Daniels: So it looks Slammiversary’s gonna be a breeze for ‘The Fallen Angel’... see you around.

Daniels smirks before walking away with his title, as Helms looks on with Moore in disapproval of the Champion’s attitude.

Elsewhere, in Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff’s office Robert Roode is standing there with Bischoff also present.

Robert Roode: Look, Eric, I don’t know what the hell is going on with James, he flips out at Sacrifice and then he doesn’t show up for our match last week. I’m not just gonna stand around and take this crap, I need you to help me out here.

Eric Bischoff: Look, Bobby, I’d love to help you, I really would... but Hulk’s not gonna be here for the next few weeks because of his back surgery, I’m here on my own and I have a ton of things to do right now so I’m afraid I can’t make resolving your differences a top priority of mine.

Roode looks around, before shaking his head.

Robert Roode: Well that’s just great.

Roode angrily turns around and walks out of the room, as we go to the final commercial of the night.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back from the break, “Catholifunk” hits to cheers from the crowd and the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero walks out, holding his title over his shoulder and wearing a dark red suit. Dinero walks towards the announce table and takes a seat in between Mike Tenay and Mick Foley, joining commentary for this match. Pope talks about how honoured he is to be facing Sting in his retirement match at Slammiversary and also how he’s going to do everything to win. Then, “Whole F’n Show” blares out to a big pop and Rob Van Dam walks out, performing his thumb taunt before jogging down the ramp and entering the ring. “Slay Me” plays and the lights go out in the Impact Zone, as Sting walks out to a huge pop. He points his baseball bat to the crowd before shouting ‘Woooo!’ and walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and stepping into the ring.

Match Six
Rob Van Dam vs. Sting
Singles Match

This unprecedented encounter between two legends of professional wrestling begins with a handshake between them, but after that both competitors are focused on winning the match. Rob Van Dam brings his high-flying offence and lethal kicks to the table whilst Sting doesn’t produce anything spectacular, mostly basic stuff minus his trademark moves, but it still makes for a good match and the crowd love it. The contest gets off to a rather slow start, with neither man being able to gain the upper hand over the other and it stays this way for the first two minutes until Van Dam brings the match to life with a Step-Over Heel Kick followed by a Standing Moonsault which only gets a count of two from the referee Earl Hebner. After that, RVD is in control and keeps the momentum going after that combination but soon after he slows the pace of the match down again. Sting continuously tries to get back into the match but to no avail, until he dodges an attempted Flying Thrust Kick from the top rope from Van Dam and hits ‘The Whole F’n Show’ with a DDT followed by a near fall.

After that Sting turns the tables on RVD with Van Dam now on the backfoot, and ‘The Icon’ begins to try to end the match, attempting to lock his opponent in the Scorpion Death Lock on a few occasions and also trying to connect with the Scorpion Death Drop but he is unsuccessful as Rob continues to valiantly fight him. Sting comes close to winning when he manages to hit Van Dam with the Stinger Splash in the corner of the ring, but is only able to get a two-and-a-half which frustrates him greatly. However, he doesn’t let his building impatience get in the way of him or go overboard with his offence on Van Dam and he continues to try to secure the victory. For the next few minutes the two competitors continue to go back-and-forth until RVD hits Sting with a Northern Lights Suplex which subsequently gives him the upper hand over his legendary opponent.

The conclusion to this main event match comes when Van Dam hits Sting with his trademark Rolling Thunder and makes the cover, only getting a two-count. RVD slowly gets back up with exhaustion beginning to set in and he waits for Sting to get back up before running off the ropes. Van Dam runs towards Sting but ‘The Icon’ floors him and tries to apply the Scorpion Death Lock. However, RVD kicks him away and then gets back to his feet, hitting Sting with a Spinning Heel Kick before climbing to the top rope. It looks like Rob is going to go for the Five Star Frog Splash, but before he can his rival Desmond Wolfe runs down the ramp and climbs onto the ring apron, pushing RVD down to the mat! The referee Earl Hebner calls for the bell, ending this match in a disqualification victory for Van Dam.

Rob Van Dam def. Sting via DQ at 8:51

RVD’s hand isn’t raised, he isn’t announced as the winner nor does his music play, because a disqualification victory is essentially worthless. Wolfe, wearing a charcoal-coloured suit, removes his shades and attacks Van Dam, stomping away at him viciously for several moments before getting Sting back up to his feet only to throw him through the ropes and out of the ring. After that Rob has his attention again and he gets Van Dam to his feet, stepping back and tilting in between the ropes before running forward and nailing RVD with the Jawbreaker Lariat! Van Dam is almost turned inside out and D’Angelo Dinero quietly leaves the announce table as Wolfe stands over his rival before calling for a microphone. He takes one from SoCal Val and stands over RVD, looking down at him with a sadistic grin on his face.

Desmond Wolfe: Rob... you can consider your Slammiversary challenge accepted. So get yourself comfortable down there because on June 13, you’re gonna find yourself in this situation again; me, standing over you... as the last... man... standing.

Wolfe drops the microphone and gives the crowd his two-fingered gesture before picking up his shades from the mat, putting them back on and brushing off his suit. With Sting now gone, Wolfe leaves the ring and saunters up the ramp, getting major heat from the crowd but that doesn’t seem to faze the Englishman at all. Desmond reaches the ramp and is met by his valet Chelsea who walks out and stands next to him, the show closing with Wolfe’s arm around Chelsea, smirking at the sight of a lifeless RVD in the ring...

Don't really see the point in waiting for too long between the shows, so here's the preview for the next Impact as well as some news.

TNA Newswire:
~ Homicide is set to be happy in TNA again. It has been no secret that he hasn't been satisfied with the company for a while but sources have said that he is enjoying life in TNA again, possibly due to the reunion of The Latin American Exchange... The May 27 Impact got a 1.3 rating, up by 0.1 from last week's show with the rating expected to go up again next week... The main event for next week's live Impact is set to be announced on the next show, most likely involving the competitors in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary... Samoa Joe is apparently set for a face turn soon after the King of the Mountain Match.




TNA Thursday Night Impact Preview
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
June 3, 2010


This Thursday, get ready for two more hours of Total Nonstop Action Wrestling with Impact on Spike at 9/8CT, as TNA's eight-year celebration Slammiversary VIII draws nearer!

Two huge main events are scheduled for Impact, with four of the five competitors in the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary in action! 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy faces the brash and arrogant Mr. Anderson and two men who were embroiled in one of the greatest feuds in TNA history, 'The Olympic Gold Medallist' Kurt Angle and 'The Samoan Submission Machine' Samoa Joe, square off! All four competitors would love to gain some much-needed momentum going into the big match on June 13, but only two will!

'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero, being the fighting Champion that he is, has requested that he defend his TNA Global Championship this week on Impact, and none other than the man Dinero won the title from at Genesis in January, Eric Young, will be his opponent! Dinero will be against Sting in the last match of 'The Icon' at Slammiversary, but will he walk into Anaheim, California with the Global Championship?

As announced last week, this week Generation Me and Team 3D will square off once again! Last week the stipulation was that if Max and Jeremy Buck could win they would get a shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championships, held by The Motor City Machine Guns, at Slammiversary, but after 3D came out with the victory last Thursday, this week they can also get a title opportunity on June 13! The 'Machine Guns will be watching closely, will you be too?

'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels will defend his TNA X Division Championship against TNA's newest competitor, Shane Helms, at Slammiversary after Helms won a #1 Contender's Gauntlet Match last week. This week, Daniels will be in acton against the always-impressive Jay Lethal as he prepares for his title defense on June 13.

Also, The Latin American Exchange are set for action this Thursday against Hernandez's former tag team partner and now rival, 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan, and a mystery partner of Morgan's choosing! See all of this and more this Thursday on Spike at 9/8CT!

Confirmed For Impact:
Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe
Jeff Hardy vs. Mr. Anderson
TNA Global Championship: D'Angelo Dinero © vs. Eric Young
#1 Contender's Match: Generation Me vs. Team 3D
Christopher Daniels vs. Jay Lethal
The Latin American Exchange vs. Matt Morgan & ???

Default Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

I'm liking the Aj Styles storyline of him being a fighting champion. This is what TNA should have been doing with him still to this day. AJ could have easily played the Bret Hart champion role like it is being displayed here.

The Wolfe and RVD feud has picked up well because at first I wasn't a huge fan of it but I think it is picking up momentum, mostly due to Wolfe gaining recent heat against RVD.

The retirement of Sting is very interesting and for Pope to be the man to face him in the final match is interesting. Pope can gain very big exposure by beating Sting if possible.

I'll give a full review of this show when it's posted. Keep up the good work, Shock.

Default Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

-The approaching Last Man Standing Match between Wolfe and RVD seems to have gained a lot of steam. Presumably, RVD will go over but I hope Wolfe keeps looking as strong as he does now.

-I'm not too sure where you'll go with the KOTM match but with Joe's face turn, I can't see him taking it. With AJ's popularity being as high as it is, I don't see another face run.

-I really didn't see you giving Helms the push but given the tension between Bischoff and Daniels, it's good to see a lot of superstars able to compete for a title shot.

-I thought for sure that the crowd was gonna turn on Pope once he proposed to Sting he'd like to be his last opponent but he did the proper face thing and extended his hand. I expect this match to go over well and I guess it's about time Sting makes his exit. Sting is always a good draw, so it only benefits the PPV.

Default Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

BTW, noticed that it says May 27 in the preview. It should have said June 3. I'll edit it. Sorry.



TNA Thursday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
June 3, 2010


Before Impact begins, a recap video of last week’s episode plays, showing Mr. Anderson’s victory over Rob Terry and Kurt Angle defeating Matt Morgan with Anderson and Angle advancing to the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary as a result, and Rob Van Dam beating Sting via disqualification after Desmond Wolfe’s interference, closing the show and the video with Wolfe standing over Van Dam and accepting his challenge to a Last Man Standing Match to end their rivalry on June 13 Slammiversary.

Then, “Change Me” blares out and the opening credits play. We then cut into the Impact Zone and see the opening pyro before the camera pans the audience in the building. Mike Tenay and Mick Foley then welcome us to this TAPED (~!) edition of Impact, going through tonight’s card which consists of The Latin American Exchange against ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan and a partner of his choosing, the TNA X Division Champion ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels against Jay Lethal, Generation Me against Team 3D in a #1 Contender’s match, ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero putting his TNA Global Championship on the line against Eric Young, ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy against Mr. Anderson and ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle against ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe.

When the commentators have finished, after a few moments of silence TNA’s resident jobber, Sean Morley, is thrown through the curtain out onto the stage. The crowd give a mixed reaction, not knowing why this has happened, but they soon find out when Desmond Wolfe walks out with a smirk on his face. The crowd give Wolfe, wearing a suit and shades, a lot of heat as he stomps away at Morley who looks like he doesn’t know where he is and he gets him to his feet, taking him down the ramp before hurling Morley shoulder-first into the steel security rail! Wolfe gets him back up and throws him under the ropes into the ring, before taking a Steel Chair and entering the ring with it. He waits for the lifeless Morley to get back up, and when he is on his knees, Wolfe nails Morley in the skull with the Chair! Desmond isn’t done though, and he gets his victim back up yet again, getting him in a front facelock and lifting him to the top rope. Wolfe stands in front of him and puts his arm around Morley’s neck, hitting him with the Tower of London! He takes a few moments to admire the sight of Morley face-down on the mat barely moving, before getting the poor guy back up yet again and making sure he stays on his feet before stepping back and tilting back in the ropes, running forward and knocking Morley out with the Jawbreaker Lariat!

It seems like Wolfe is finally done, and he stands over Morley just like he did over Rob Van Dam last week. He holds up his hands and begins to count with his fingers until he gets to ten and he stops, obviously sending a message to Van Dam before their Last Man Standing Match at Slammiversary. However, “Whole F’n Show” then plays as the crowd go wild and RVD runs out with a Steel Chair! As soon as Wolfe sees him he picks up his Chair but as he does Van Dam is already in the ring having sprinted as fast as possible, and Rob gets to his feet and drives the edge of the Chair into Wolfe’s mid-section! Wolfe falls back into the corner of the ring and lands in a seated position, and RVD holds up his Chair before backing into the opposite corner as the crowd begin to cheer. Van Dam looks like he is going to go for the Chair Surf, but before he can Wolfe manages to escape from the ring and he staggers up the ramp, clutching his ribs. The crowd boo Desmond as he makes his way up to the stage and RVD slams his Chair repeatedly against the mat, shouting at Wolfe ‘Get your ass back in here!’ However, Wolfe shakes his head with a look of disgust on his face and disappears behind the curtain, as the commentators reflect on what they just saw and say that it has to be advantage Van Dam right now going into Slammiversary on June 13, before we go to a...

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “To Live And Die In LAX” hits to cheers from the crowd and Hernandez and Homicide, the Latin American Exchange, walk out. They make their way down the ramp with a Mexican flag draped over Hernandez’s shoulders and they high-five some fans before entering the ring. Then, “Sleeping Giant” plays and the crowd begin to boo as Matt Morgan walks out with a microphone in his hand and a smirk on his face, not performing his usual entrance.

Matt Morgan: I hope all of you are ready to thank me, because tonight I’m gonna put an end to this little reunion of yours... single-handedly. But don’t think I don’t have a partner because I said that, oh no! I’m not letting you off that easy!

Morgan wags his finger at them and shakes his head before continuing.

Matt Morgan: Y’see, I plan to beat you on my own but just in case I’ve brought along my tag team partner. For some reason nobody wanted to team with me, but I’ve still found the cream of the crop... you ready for this? OK. Introducing my tag team partner... Jethro Holliday!

“Outlaw” blares out to little to no reaction and Jethro Holliday walks out, looking focused and ready to compete whereas Morgan tries to contain his laughter. The duo walk down the ramp to the ring side-by-side and step into the ring, as Morgan poses for the crowd by raising his open hand into the air standing behind the ropes and Holliday simply prepares for the match in the corner.

Match One
The Latin American Exchange vs. Jethro Holliday & Matt Morgan
Tag Team Match

Matt Morgan makes Jethro Holliday start the match against Homicide and Holliday, a questionable choice to be Morgan’s partner, is dominated. He gets barely any offence in against either Hernandez or Homicide throughout the match and Morgan can see it with his own eyes yet he doesn’t offer to get into the match. However, ‘The Blueprint’ is forced into the match when he is tagged by Holliday whilst Morgan has his back turned and he has a slow start against Homicide but soon gains control. However, when Homicide tags Hernandez into the match Morgan is on the backfoot and Hernandez dominates him until he tags Holliday back in. After that the end of the match is near and after Jethro surprisingly builds up a miniscule amount of offence with some right hands, he is soon put away by a Mexplex (T-Bone Suplex) and Hernandez pins him for the victory!

The Latin American Exchange def. Jethro Holliday & Matt Morgan at 5:08

Homicide gets up and has his hand raised in victory along with Hernandez to cheers from the crowd, whilst Matt Morgan stands on the stage shaking his head in disappointment. LAX embrace and Hernandez climbs to the second rope, pointing at Morgan and then pounding his fist into his palm. Morgan laughs at his rival’s notion before turning on his heel and walking away, disappearing behind the curtain. Tenay and Foley question Morgan for saying he could beat LAX single-handedly but ultimately walking out on his conspicuously-chosen partner.

Backstage, James Storm is sat on a chair in the corner of Eric Bischoff’s office with Bischoff also present, and moments later Robert Roode walks in. Roode and Storm immediately make eye contact, but Eric steps between them and tries to make sure nothing happens.

Eric Bischoff: Alright guys, I don’t know what the hell is going on between you two and I don’t know why, but I wanna make sure it ends now. James, you ruined the match I scheduled two weeks ago, you were supposed to compete but you didn’t even show up! You’re damn lucky I haven’t suspended your ass but if you do it again then I will!

James Storm: Hey, I just don’t like teamin’ with losers. Bobby, we were meant ta’ take back those Tag Team Titles at Sacrifice and you blew it! Not me, you!

Roode strokes his jaw, visibly disagreeing with Storm’s statement.

Robert Roode: You’re calling me a loser?

James Storm: Yeah, I am.

Eric Bischoff: Hey, I can call security at any time, guys, I’m in charge so I suggest you don’t lose your cool.

Robert Roode: How about you face me at Slammiversary, and we’ll find out who the loser is, James? The well-educated, wealthy guy or the stupid drunk?

Bischoff looks at Storm, then looking at Roode.

Eric Bischoff: Y’know what? I’m gonna book it! You two are gonna solve this crap yourselves at Slammiversary. Now both of you get out, I have a lot to do and I don’t wanna hear your stupid arguing.

Eric steps aside and sits down, and Roode and Storm come face-to-face, exchanging scornful looks as we go to another commercial break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, the camera is set on the crowd just as Shane Helms and Shannon Moore make their way down, getting a good ovation, and stand amongst the fans just in front of the LED screen. Then, “Wings Of A Fallen Angel” blares out to heat from the crowd and the TNA X Division Champion ‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels walks through the curtain, wearing a black jacket. He walks down the ring with his face covered by his hood, and as he climbs onto the ring apron he flicks his hood back, revealing his disgusted look. He steps into the ring and removes his jacket, unstrapping his title from around his waist and holding it up so that Helms and Moore can see it in the crowd. “LethalX” hits to cheers from the crowd and Jay Lethal walks out, crouching down and pointing to the TNA logo on the stage before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and sliding under the ropes into the ring.

Match Two
Christopher Daniels vs. Jay Lethal
Singles Match

It is obvious that Christopher Daniels’ full concentration is not on this match with Jay Lethal, with Daniels’ Slammiversary opponent Shane Helms watching in the crowd along with Shannon Moore. ‘The Fallen Angel’ starts strongly, pinning Lethal following an STO for a count of two, but after that he becomes distracted by Helms, taunting Shane and motioning around his waist that he will retain his TNA X Division Championship at Slammiversary. Lethal takes advantage and gets to his feet, hitting Daniels with a Russian Leg Sweep and Jay dominates the Champion for the next two minutes. Lethal goes for the Lethal Injection but Daniels flips back and lands on his feet behind Lethal, then hitting a Death Valley Driver which puts the match back in the favour of the X Division Champion. However, Daniels lets his advantage slip once again when he climbs onto the ropes and taunts Helms, saying he should get out of TNA while he still can. When Daniels climbs off the ropes and steps backwards Lethal, who is on his feet, lifts him up and hits the Lethal Injection! Jay makes the cover and wins the match, pinning the TNA X Division Champion!

Jay Lethal def. Christopher Daniels at 6:42

Helms and Moore applaud in the crowd as Lethal gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee, hardly believing that he just pinned the TNA X Division Champion. Jay drops to his knees and holds his hands high before leaving the ring and high-fiving the fans around the ring, then walking up the ramp. Eventually, Daniels gets back to his feet and snatches his title out of SoCal Val’s hands, looking at Helms in the crowd and holding up his title, shouting ‘You can’t get into my head! I’m still the Champion, and you’re not gonna change that!’ before leaving the ring.

Then we cut backstage, where the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns are sat in their locker room in casual clothes with their titles over their shoulders.

Chris Sabin: The thing with Generation Me is, they’re not very consistent. They came into TNA, they were doing great, they had a title match at Destination X but after that it went downhill. Now, it seems like they’ve come back, they lost unfairly last week and I wanna see them win tonight so we can face them at Slammiversary. We’ve had battles with Team 3D in the past, we’ve beaten them before and they haven’t really changed since then so we want a fresh challenge.

Alex Shelley: The fact that Team 3D couldn’t get a clean victory last week makes me think Generation Me could win tonight, but you don’t know which Generation Me you’re gonna get tonight, it could be the guys that took us and Beer Money to the limit, or the guys that can’t get on Impact. They’re great competitors, they’ve shown that, but it’s night like these are gonna determine whether they’re good enough to hold these TNA World Tag Team Championships or not.

Sabin and Shellley pose for the camera, before we go to a break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back from the commercial, Team 3D are stood behind the curtain, about to make their entrance.

Brother Ray: All week, people have been talking about our match tonight and it’s been all about Generation Me. They’ve been asking whether Generation Me can win tonight, or if they can win the titles at Slammiversary, well the fact of the matter is those little punks aren’t gonna make it to Slammiversary because there is no way they’re gonna go through us. We’re the most decorated tag team in professional wrestling, all the idiots in the crowd seem to have forgotten about that, so if we didn’t make them take notice last week, then we’re sure as hell gonna do it tonight.

Brother Devon: Oh my brother, TESTIFY!

The duo then walk through the curtain and emerge on the stage as “Watch Out, Watch Out” blares out to heat from the crowd. Ray and Devon stand side-by-side and pose as their pyro goes off before walking down the ramp, stepping into the ring. Then, “My Generation” hits to cheers from the crowd and Generation Me walk out, standing back-to-back and posing before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and simultaneously sliding into the ring.

Match Three
Generation Me vs. Team 3D
#1 Contender’s Match

The stakes are higher tonight than they were last week when Generation Me and Team 3D squared off because last week a TNA World Tag Team Championship match at Slammiversary was promised for the Bucks if they won which they didn’t, but tonight Team 3D also have the opportunity to gain that opportunity. Both duos give it their all in this match, more so than they did in their meeting last Thursday, and in the opening stages of the contest Max and Jeremy show the world just how much they want to come back from their defeat last week, bombarding Brother Ray and Devon with quick-paced, high-flying offence. Their momentum reaches its peak when Ray and Devon are both outside the ring and Max and Jeremy run across the ring, flying through the ropes and taking out the veterans with a Double Suicide Dive! After that, the legal man Max covers Devon but Devon manages to get the shoulder up.

This tag team match comes to an end when Ray Irish whips Jeremy into the ropes to go for the 3D, but Max takes out Devon with a Dropkick behind Ray’s back and he manages to catch Jeremy on his shoulders, pulling him away from Ray’s grasps. Max spins Jeremy around, Jeremy kicking Ray in the face in the process and he then puts him down. Max lifts Ray onto his shoulders and manages to hit the Rolling Fireman’s Carry Slam, as Jeremy climbs out onto the ring apron and jumps onto the ropes, hitting a 450 Splash simultaneously with a Moonsault from Max, hitting the Bang For Your Buck! Max then makes the cover: One! Two! Three!

Generation Me def. Team 3D at 6:30

Jeremy gets to his feet and he and Max have their hands raised to cheers by the referee Mike Posey. The two brothers embrace and raise each other’s hands high, before both motioning around their waists that they are the next TNA World Tag Team Champions and leaving the ring.

Backstage, Daffney is stood in a dark corridor holding her TNA Knockouts Championship. She is looking at her title, instead of the camera.

Daffney: Why do I want Tara’s Spider?... it’s important to her. When I beat her senseless at Slammiversary, I want her to suffer as much as possible.

The Champion grins and looks at her title, before continuing.

Daffney: Not only is she going to taste defeat... but she is going to lose her beloved Spider too. And when I get that Spider... I’m gonna kill it.

She laughs, before abruptly stopping and scowling at the camera, then walking out of the picture.

Then, the camera cuts elsewhere. ‘The Icon’ Sting is walking backwards and forwards in the rafters, wearing his black trenchcoat and holding his black baseball bat in his hand. We are informed that coming up next, Sting’s opponent in his last match at Slammiversary, D’Angelo Dinero, is in action next before going to a commercial break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back from the break, “Elite” hits to heat from the crowd and Eric Young walks out, with Kevin Nash in tow. Nash pats Young, who is smirking, on the back before they walk down the ramp, entering the ring and Eric raises one hand in the air whilst Nash stands behind him nodding his head. Then, “Catholifunk” plays to a big pop and ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero walks out, wearing a black bandana, shades and a jacket with his TNA Global Championship strapped around his waist. Dinero saunters down the ramp and stops to outstretch his arms as money falls from the ceiling before he steps into the ring and removing his entrance attire. The camera cuts to Sting watching from the rafters before cutting back to the ring for the match to get underway.

Match Four
D’Angelo Dinero © vs. Eric Young
TNA Global Championship

On paper you would think of this as a rather one-sided match with D’Angelo Dinero going into a huge match with Sting at Slammiversary despite Eric Young being the former TNA Global Champion, but Young still has an impressive showing in this contest. With Kevin Nash cheering him on at ringside, Eric gets a fair amount of offence in at the start of the match but eventually Dinero takes control with some flashy offence such as some elbows to the head with some theatrics. Then the focus is on ‘The Pope’ and we get shots of Sting watching in the rafters on a few occasions, looking impressed by his future opponent’s showing. With the exception of a few right hands and a kick to the mid-section, Young doesn’t do anymore to Dinero and the Champion soon puts him away with the DDE, covering him and retaining his TNA Global Championship pretty comfortably.

D’Angelo Dinero def. Eric Young to retain the TNA Global Championship at 5:21

Dinero’s hand is raised by Slick Johnson and he is given his TNA Global Championship which he raises high in the air. We get another shot of Sting watching his Slammiversary opponent from the rafters as ‘The Pope’ walks up the ramp, collecting his shades before picking up a dollar from the ground and holding it up in front of the camera, then dropping it to the floor and leaving.

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

Christy Hemme: Ladies and gentlemen, I’m standing with ‘The Olympic Gold Medallist’ Kurt Angle who will face arguably his greatest rival in TNA, ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe, in tonight’s main event. Both of you will be competing in the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary, what are your thoughts going into this match?

Kurt Angle: Christy, last week I said I’d beat Matt Morgan... and I did. I’m gonna say the exact same thing about Samoa Joe right now, because just like Morgan, I’ve beaten him before. Hell, I was the first ever guy to beat Joe here in TNA.

Cheers from the crowd.

Kurt Angle: Just like you said, me and Joe had one hell of a rivalry, one of the biggest in TNA history, but I still have unfinished business with him. Last time I faced him, this year, it was a Ladder Match for a shot at the title, and I lost thanks to Ric Flair.

Heat at the mention of Flair.

Kurt Angle: But tonight, Joe’s not gonna have any back-up, it’s gonna be me and him one-on-one in that ring... and I’m gonna make his sorry ass tap out.

Just at that moment, Samoa Joe walks into the picture glaring at Angle.

Samoa Joe: You’re gonna make me tap out? I think you’ll find that’s not gonna happen, Kurt. I’m gonna make you tap out... actually, no, I’m not. I’m gonna choke you out, so before you can even tap... you won’t be conscious.

Joe makes a slit-throat gesture to Angle before walking out of the picture.

TNA SLAMMIVERSARY VIII – JUNE 13 – ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA

---

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back on Impact, “Modest” hits to cheers from the crowd and the lights go out in the Impact Zone as a green mist veils the stage. Jeff Hardy walks out and dances around on the stage before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and sliding under the ropes. Hardy runs to the corner and climbs to the second rope, posing for the crowd before climbing back down. Then, “Feedback” blares out and the lights completely go out as the crowd begin to boo. A spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there, then reaching into the air and taking his microphone which comes down from the ceiling as his music stops.

Mr. Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen... from Green Bay, Wisconsin... the uncrowned King of the Mountain... MIIISTTTAAHHHH ANNNDDEEERRSSSONNN... ANNNDDEEERRSSSONNN!

Anderson lets go of his microphone and his music plays again, walking down the ramp with a swagger in his step and entering the ring, standing opposite Hardy as they wait for the match to begin.

Match Five
Jeff Hardy vs. Mr. Anderson
Singles Match

Both of these men will be competing in the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary, so a victory either Jeff Hardy or Mr. Anderson would give them a huge boost going into that match on June 13. This contest starts off with a bang, with Anderson and Hardy standing face-to-face in the middle of the ring until Anderson slaps him across the face! Hardy then retaliates by flooring his loudmouth opponent on the mat with a double-leg takedown and he pummels Anderson with blows to the head until the referee Dave Hebner breaks them up. About a minute into the match, the action cools down with Anderson countering Hardy’s high-flying offence by keeping him down on the ground and leaving the ring whenever ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ is building up momentum on a few occasions.

However, in the end it doesn’t work for Anderson because when his back is turned to the ring whilst standing outside, Hardy rebounds off the ropes and runs across the ring, going over the ropes and taking out Anderson with a Somersault Plancha! After that, the action gets back in the ring and Jeff takes control of the match, building up a lot of offence and getting a near fall following an Inverted Sit-out Suplex Slam. Anderson manages to swing the contest back in his favour though when Hardy runs up the turnbuckles and jumps to the top rope, about to go for a Whisper In The Wind, only for Anderson to push Jeff off the top rope and face-first into the steel security guard rail on the outside of the ring!

The conclusion to the match comes when Hardy has regained control after hitting Anderson with the Whisper In The Wind on the second attempt and Ken is currently down on the mat. Jeff eagerly waits for the loudmouth to get to his feet, and when he does Hardy gets him in a front face-lock in position for the Twist Of Fate. However, as Jeff spins around Anderson breaks out of his grasps and rolls him up with a Schoolboy, getting his feet on the middle rope with the referee Hebner not seeing, One! Two! Three! Anderson steals the victory!

Mr. Anderson def. Jeff Hardy at 9:14

Anderson gets his feet off the ropes and slides out of the ring, avoiding an incensed Hardy and raising his hand in the air in victory to huge heat from the crowd. Ken walks around the ring to the ramp and mocks a fan holding a sign saying ‘Anderson Asshole’ before sauntering up the ramp, reaching the stage but meanwhile Hardy leaves the ring and runs up the ramp, and when Anderson turns around he is attacked by Jeff! The crowd cheer as ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ unloads on the loudmouth with right hands before kicking him in the mid-section, and laying out Anderson with a Twist Of Fate on the stage! The crowd go wild as ‘Modest’ blares out and Hardy stands over a docile Anderson, posing before walking away.

---

The crowd pop big time as Samoa Joe is down and out on the canvas and Kurt Angle is up with the ladder in his hands, and Angle sets up the ladder, beginning to climb the ladder and the volume of cheers in the crowd get even louder with every rung ‘The Wrestling Machine’ climbs. Angle is at the top of the ladder, and he reaches up for it ... BUT THE BRIEFCASE IS REELED UP FURTHER OUT OF ANGLE’S REACH!!! The cheers in the Impact Zone turn to deafening boos as Angle mouths ‘What the hell?!’ and he looks up as the briefcase is out of his reach and Kurt can see something, or someone in the rafters...

IT’S RIC FLAIR!!!

RIC FLAIR HAS RAISED THE BRIEFCASE FURTHER UP SO KURT ANGLE CAN’T RETRIEVE IT!!! FLAIR HAS SCREWED ANGLE!! Angle can see Flair, and with a furious look on his face, he shouts ‘I’ll kill you, Ric! I’ll kill you!’ as Flair continues to grin at his rival. Meanwhile, Samoa Joe is back on his feet and he is climbing up the ladder as Angle is distracted by Flair, and Joe slams Kurt’s face into the top of the ladder, then pulling Angle towards him until the upper half of Angle’s body is on his half of the ladder. Joe gets Angle in a front face-lock and pulls Kurt further across until Angle’s legs are resting on the top of the ladder and Joe takes Angle’s legs, lifting him up ... AND NAILING ANGLE WITH A MUSCLE BUSTER OFF THE LADDER!!!

The crowd pop again and chant ‘Holy Sh*t!’ as Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe are laid out on the canvas and Ric Flair lowers the briefcase once again, then walking away with the camera set on him, and several moments later, Joe is up, and he begins to slowly climb up the ladder, getting closer and closer to the Feast or Fired briefcase and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ on top of the ladder, glances down at Angle who is still motionless before getting his hands on the briefcase ... AND TAKING THE BRIEFCASE DOWN, WINNING THE LADDER MATCH!!!
Winner – Samoa Joe @ 16:52

Ric Flair has screwed Kurt Angle out of winning the Feast or Fired briefcase! ‘Nation Of Violence’ blares out to heat from the crowd and Samoa Joe, with a smirk on his face, holds up his briefcase as he sits at the top of the ladder and we now know that AJ Styles will defend his TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Destination X against Joe.

---
After that recap of their previous encounter, we see a split-screen of Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe walking to the ring, that match being next, before going to the final commercial break of the night.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*


Back from the final break, “Nation Of Violence” hits to a mixed reaction and Samoa Joe walks out, his trademark white towel over his shoulders. Joe makes a slit-throat gesture before raising his hand into the air as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp, entering the ring. Then, the lights go out and “Gold Metal” blares out as Kurt Angle ascends up to the stage from his elevator, getting a huge pop from the crowd. Angle throws his hands into the air as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp, wearing a blue T-shirt and dog tags around his neck. He enters the ring and poses again before removing his T-shirt and tags, and standing in the corner opposite Joe.

Match Six
Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe
Singles Match

Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe have had countless epic battles in the past, and this match is no different. At the beginning of the contest, Angle extends his hand to Joe but it is not accepted and it sets the tone for the bout with Kurt then getting serious and attacking Joe. However, Joe manages to survive Kurt’s flurry of offence in the opening stages and soon turns the tide, taking control of the contest and not letting Angle get any offence in. Joe takes great strides towards winning the match when he takes the action out of the ring and drives Kurt shoulder-first into the steel ring-post, subsequently lifting him up in a Military Press position before dropping him on his stomach on the steel security guard rail. Joe makes the cover when they get back into the ring after that, but Angle manages to get the shoulder up much to Joe’s chagrin.

After that, Joe continues to dominate but Kurt begins to show signs of recovery, trying to hit some moves but every time he tries, Joe gets out of it. However, when Joe goes for a Running Forearm Smash in the corner, Angle moves and hits Joe with his trademark three German Suplexes! Kurt gains the upper hand following that, keeping Joe grounded on the canvas, but when Angle goes for a risky Moonsault from the top rope ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ moves out of the way, causing Kurt to crash into the mat and the tide then turns once again with Joe regaining control over his old rival.

Joe begins to make advances towards securing the victory, almost winning following an Island Driver, but somehow Angle manages to get the shoulder up on two-and-a-half. Joe continues to try to win the contest but Kurt refuses to quit and Joe’s frustration begins to build. The conclusion of this match comes when Joe has Angle in the corner and he hits him with some blows to the chest. After taking a breather for a few moments, Joe turns away before spinning around in the air and going for the CCS Enzuigiri, but Angle catches Joe’s foot and puts him in the Ankle Lock! The fans go wild as Kurt then grapevines Joe’s leg and applies the pressure to his ankle, Joe writhing in pain and desperately trying to get to the ropes. He tries his best to escape for several moments, until finally giving in and tapping out, giving the victory to Angle!

Kurt Angle def. Samoa Joe at 11:35

Angle lets go of Joe’s ankle and struggles to his feet, having his hand raised by the referee to cheers from the crowd. Angle staggers forward into the corner and leans against the ropes with his back turned to the ring, raising one hand in the air but he is then attacked from behind by Joe who gets to his feet! The majority of the crowd boo as Angle goes down and Joe stomps away viciously at him, before going to ground and turning Angle over onto his back, locking him in the Coquina Clutch! However, Jeff Hardy then runs down the ramp and slides into the ring, attacking Joe and saving Angle! Hardy climbs on top of Joe and pummels him with blows, but then the man Hardy lost to earlier, Mr. Anderson, comes out and makes his way to the ring, attacking Hardy! Anderson and Joe now have the upper hand over Angle and Hardy with Joe now back on his feet, but the story takes another twist as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles runs out to the ring and attacks Anderson! Joe makes the save and takes AJ away from Anderson, but Hardy gets back to his feet and assaults him. The chaos continues in the ring until “White Train” hits and Eric Bischoff walks out with a microphone.

Eric Bischoff: STOP! JUST STOP!

The fighting comes to an end as Angle, Hardy and Styles regroup in one corner and Anderson and Joe stand opposite them.

Eric Bischoff: I’m not gonna let the show end like this, no! You wanna fight, you do it next week in a match, right here LIVE on Impact!

Cheers from the crowd.

Eric Bischoff: Because next Thursday night, three days before Slammiversary... in the main event we’re gonna have ourselves a tag team match. It’s gonna be Mr. Anderson and Samoa Joe... versus Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle!

Huge pop.

Eric Bischoff: But hey, AJ! Don’t think you don’t fit in this, believe me, you do... because in that tag team match... you are gonna be the Special Guest Referee!

Bischoff’s music hits again as he departs, leaving the five men competing in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary in the ring to close the show...

Default Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

I'm going to start doing house show reports now in a website style, I think it'll be pretty helpful for me to further storylines, new gimmicks and what not. Here are the three house shows for the next of the TNA BTB week...

TNA House Show Report
Kaiser Convention Center, Oakland, California
June 4, 2010



~ Christopher Daniels def. Amazing Red, Jay Lethal & Kazarian in a Four Corners Match to retain the TNA X Division Championship at 9:29 - Shane Helms sat in the front row of the crowd for this match to give his match with Daniels at Slammiversary a bit of hype, and throughout the match Daniels taunted and talked trash to Helms quite often. Great match to start the show, seemed like a few of the fans expected a title change but Daniels managed to win after hitting Kazarian with the Angel’s Wings. Solid start to the show, crowd loved it.

~ Jeremy Borash came out and said he’d give out backstage passes to everybody but Matt Morgan then came out and told him the fans didn’t deserve to go backstage. Hernandez and Homicide came out and scared Morgan away before telling JB to give out the passes before they had their match.

~ Latin American Exchange def. Beer Money at 7:41 - James Storm and Robert Roode didn’t co-operate at all in this match with blind tags the only way that they went in and out of the ring and in their entrance Roode got cheered but Storm got a lot of heat. Towards the end, Storm walked out on Roode and Homicide hit him with the Gringo Killa for the win. Good match, hopefully this means that LAX will be back as a full-time team after Slammiversary.

~ The Motor City Machine Guns came out and Shelley told LAX that their win was impressive and then asked the fans if they wanted to see them against LAX in the future which got a huge pop. Sabin said they’d gladly defend the titles against them in the future before Generation Me came out.

~ Chris Sabin def. Max Buck at 7:15 - Alex Shelley and Jeremy Buck were at ringside for the match, but neither of them got involved with Sabin and Max showing respect for each other and shaking hands at the start. Great match, not quite as good as the X Division Four-Way Match but still definitely worth watching, Sabin won after the Cradle Shock. Sabin and Shelley raised Max and Jeremy’s hands after the match to a lot of cheers from the crowd.

~ 15-minute intermission.

~ Rob Van Dam def. Desmond Wolfe at 9:37 - Great match, as good as their effort at Sacrifice, both guys gave it their all in this match. Chelsea got a fair amount of heat from the crowd at ringside which can only be good and she got involved by climbing onto the ring apron but Van Dam lifted her into the ring, Wolfe attacked him before he could do anything to Chelsea though. RVD won with the Five-Star Frog Splash. After the match, Van Dam said in Anaheim he’s going to do that to Desmond Wolfe again but worse so that he is the last man standing at Slammiversary, before signing some autographs.

~ Mr. Anderson & Samoa Joe def. Jeff Hardy & Kurt Angle at 10:28 - Before the match, Jeremy Borash said this is a preview of the main event for Impact on Thursday, so that must mean this will be on the live special. Samoa Joe didn’t work with Mr. Anderson, only tagged in and out without any teamwork but Joe was very impressive in this match and looks like he’s getting back in shape. Joe pinned Hardy after the Muscle Buster, but after the match when Anderson started celebrating for himself, Joe put him in the Coquina Clutch and choked him out. Joe got a big pop tonight, despite being a heel although this could point towards him turning tweener or face.

~ Sting came out and said the crowd has been great tonight, stating he wouldn’t expect any less from Oakland which got a cheap pop. He said this is his last time being in Oakland before he retires at Slammiversary but he’s had a fantastic time tonight.

~ AJ Styles def. D’Angelo Dinero at 11:03 - Sting sat at ringside for this match, presumably scouting Dinero before their Slammiversary match. Both Dinero and Styles got big pops from the crowd, AJ getting a ‘Be on Impact!’ chant which made him laugh, and Styles won after the 45o Splash. Solid match. After the match, Styles and Dinero shook hands and Sting came into the ring to raise both their hands in the air, before the trio took pictures with all the fans willing to pay to do so.

~ Overall - TNA always puts on great house shows, and this was no exception. Very strong card, packed with big matches and I hope TNA keeps up the good work.

TNA House Show Report
Sacramento Convention Center, Sacramento, California
June 5, 2010



~ Christopher Daniels def. Shannon Moore at 8:46 - Like the house show last night with the tag team match, this is going to be on Impact on Thursday but Jeremy Borash said it was a ‘special treat’ for everybody who came. The treat on the last show was better to be honest, but this was still a good match which the crowd was into. Just like the show last night, Shane Helms was in the front row again cheering on his buddy Shannon but Daniels won after the Best Moonsault Ever. Decent start to the show.

~ Kurt Angle came out and said he has had a great time in California so far and he’s going to make it an even better time at Slammiversary when he wins the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in the King of the Mountain Match. Mr. Anderson then came out and said that won’t happen because the winner of the match has already been set in stone, but before he could say his name Angle challenged him to a match tonight, which Anderson accepted.

~ Tara def. Velvet Sky at 5:04 - The crowd wasn’t overly interested in this match with a few more empty seats than there were during Angle’s promo, but the quality of wrestling here wasn’t too bad. Tara won after hitting the Widow’s Peak, after the match Daffney came out and stole the Cage containing Tara’s Spider Poison from the corner of the ring but Angelina Love came out and attacked her, taking the Cage back and giving it back to Tara.

~ Alex Shelley def. Jeremy Buck at 7:21 - Pretty much the reverse of the match last night with Chris Sabin and Max Buck at ringside. Great match, match of the night so far, Jeremy managed to beat Shelley with a Small Package pin which surprised a lot of people. After the match, Sabin and Shelley showed respect to Generation Me again, raising their hands.

~ 15-minute intermission.

~ The British Invasion def. Beer Money at 7:40 - Like last night, Roode got cheers whereas Storm got a lot of it, and before the match he threatened to spit beer in a child’s face. Great guy. Good match, The British Invasion haven’t been seen since Sacrifice but showed no signs of ring rust. The Brits won when Magnus hit Storm with the Tormentum after Roode turned the tables on his partner, walking out on him instead of it being the other way around.

~ Sting came out and said he wanted to make his last show in Sacramento special so he laid down an open challenge to anybody on the TNA roster which was accepted by Matt Morgan who got a lot of heat.

~ Sting def. Matt Morgan at 8:19 - Decent match, nothing too spectacular but the crowd were really into it and were right behind Sting. Morgan got in a lot of offence in the match, but when Sting had the upper hand Morgan left the ring. Hernandez and Homicide came out and scared Morgan who walked backwards into Sting who got him back into the ring and soon after made him submit to the Scorpion Death Lock.

~ Don West went around the ring selling some TNA merchandise and sold quite a lot. Good businessman.

~ Kurt Angle def. Mr. Anderson at 9:52 - Both played their roles well with Anderson getting a lot of heat and Angle getting a big pop, and Anderson taunted Angle and the crowd quite a lot throughout the match. Solid contest as expected from a match involving Angle, and Kurt won after making Anderson tap out to the Ankle Lock before he could use the brass knuckles he took out from his trunks. After the match, Anderson tried to use them but Angle was ready for him and Anderson then left the ring.

~ AJ Styles def. Samoa Joe at 12:14 - Both of these guys got cheered by the crowd, which makes it even more likely that Joe will be turning soon. Definitely match of the night, these two always provide results when they’re in the ring especially with each other and this was no different. Styles won after hitting the 45o Splash in a very evenly-matched contest. After the match, AJ extended his hand to Joe but Joe rejected it and left the ring. Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle then came to the ring to congratulate Styles and the trio signed autographs and took pictures with fans who paid extra for the privilege.

~ Overall: The card wasn’t quite as strong as the one for the show last night in Oakland, but as the show went on it picked up pace and the main event sent the fans home in a very happy mood.

TNA House Show Report
UCSB Events Center, Santa Barbara, California
June 6, 2010



~ Christopher Daniels def. Amazing Red to retain the TNA X Division Championship at 8:32 - Red got a great ovation from the crowd before the match, and Daniels got some cheers as well but he got his heat back by taunting the fans throughout the contest. Like the last two house shows, Shane Helms was sitting on the front row but was with Shannon Moore this time and Daniels managed to win to retain his title as expected after hitting the Angel’s Wings. Great match, showed what the X Division is all about.

~ Jeremy Borash came out and said VIP packages were still available for Slammiversary and he was going to give away free backstage passes for the crowd tonight but James Storm came out and said they shouldn’t get anything. Robert Roode then came out and said he thinks they should, and Roode and Storm then had a stare-down but before anything could happen between them Team 3D came out.

~ Beer Money def. Team 3D at 7:29 - Once again, James Storm and Robert Roode did not work well together which gave Team 3D the advantage on many occasions. At the end of the match, Storm tried to spit beer in Roode’s face but Roode ducked and the beer went into Devon’s eyes instead! Roode then hit Devon with the Pay Off for the victory before leaving without Storm but Storm didn’t seem to care much.

~ Hernandez def. Eric Young at 6:54 - Kevin Nash accompanied Young, who now has a beard, to the ring for the match and encouraged Eric throughout the contest but was left disappointed when Hernandez, who had Homicide at ringside, beat him after hitting the Border Toss. Hernandez got a lot of cheers from the crowd and he and Homicide then left the ring to sign autographs and take pictures but Matt Morgan came out and attacked Hernandez just as he was posing for a picture, taking out Homicide as well.

~ 15-minute intermission.

~ The Motor City Machine Guns def. The British Invasion at 7:47 - Before the match, Jeremy Borash said this was a preview match for this Thursday’s live Impact special Williams was pinned after Sabin and Shelley hit him with the Skull and Bones. After the match, Magnus attacked them by himself but Generation Me quickly made the save.

~ Desmond Wolfe came out and said much like Magnus and Williams, he didn’t know what state he was in either and he wouldn’t need to because he would be getting out of here as soon as the show is over which got a lot of heat. Wolfe continued, saying that Santa Barbara is as bad as everybody else on the TNA roster, but Jeff Hardy came out and challenged him to a match, which Wolfe accepted. Then, Eric Bischoff came out and said that he was making Rob Van Dam the Special Guest Referee for the match!

~ Jeff Hardy def. Desmond Wolfe with Rob Van Dam as Special Guest Referee at 9:03 - Van Dam got a huge pop from the crowd and had several confrontations with Wolfe throughout the match. When he brought a Chair into the ring, RVD hit him with the Van Daminator and Hardy then hit the Twist of Fate followed by a Swanton Bomb for the win. Van Dam then proudly raised Jeff’s hand in the air as Wolfe quietly left the ring.

~ AJ Styles def. Sting at 11:25 - Every single fan that turned up tonight was in their seat for this match, which definitely delivered. Both guys got great ovations from the crowd and gave it their all, but in the end Styles won after hitting the Styles Clash. After the match, AJ and Sting shook hands and Kurt Angle and Rob Van Dam then came to the ring, as the quartet took pictures and signed autographs.

~ Overall - The card was better than the last show but not as good as the first show, but the show itself tonight was great just like the other two.

Default Re: ASCS Shock Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

Hey there Shocker, thought I’d finally pop in and leave a review of your last episode of Impact.

Wolfe destroying Morley definitely sent the message and set the tone for what’s to come in his Last Man Standing match with RVD. I especially liked how you had Wolfe count to ten. That was a nice touch.

I liked how Morgan said nobody wanted to be his partner but he still managed to get the cream of the crop and then you had him announce Jethro Holliday as his partner to no crowd reaction. The finish of the tag match was great. I chuckled at the way you described Holliday “surprisingly” getting in some offense even though it was just a couple of right hands.

Haven’t really followed your thread too closely so I didn’t know you had Beer Money feuding against each other until now. The meeting in Bischoff’s office between them was a simple but effective segment because it has me looking forward to their encounter.

Having Lethal pull off the victory due to Daniels being distracted by Helms was a smart move. Makes the champ look a lot more susceptible to losing against Helms at Slammiversary. As of now I can’t really predict a winner which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.

Having the Machine Guns give their take on the upcoming no.1 contender match added some valuable insight. Giving them face time when they aren’t in a match is never a bad choice.

The Team 3D .vs. Gen Me match was by the book although I did enjoy the finish. I liked how they were able to counter the 3D and I would love to see Max actually get Ray up on his shoulders for the Rolling Fireman’s Carry.

I loved Daffney’s short promo because I could see those exact words coming out of her mouth. Somehow you were able to convey Daffney’s twisted delivery just by the words on the paper and all it took was a few lines.

Hopefully we get a face-to-face confrontation next week between Pope and Sting. I understand keeping them separated for now but hopefully you have something planned to add an extra level to their match at Slammiversary. I realize the stakes, but I still feel they need some more mic time to really drive home why people should pay to see the match.

Yeah, I didn’t expect a clean finish in the Hardy/Anderson match but it was still well executed because the schoolboy came out of nowhere and up until then I thought Hardy had it in the bag with the Twist of Fate. Letting Hardy get some immediate payback was fine by me as I’m sure the Twist of Fate on the stage would be wicked to see in real life.

I’m very thankful for the recap of the Joe/Angle ladder match because I wasn’t reading your thread at the time, but just from that recap alone it makes me want to look back and find it to read it in full. I’m glad you recapped it because otherwise I wouldn’t have known the full details and it definitely added another dimension to the main event.

Holy ouchies at the military press drop onto the guardrail. Nice original spot. Wow, wasn’t expecting a clean finish to this match either. Glad I was wrong. Once again, a very well planned finish.

Total chaos at the end there but it was a nice way to lead into the main event being scheduled for next week. Can’t say it’s something we haven’t seen before, having a tag match featuring all of the guys in the main event, but it should still be a good match. Plus, it should free up some time to build up the other matches on the card.

Overall, I have to say that your style of writing is very easy to read and the show has a good flow. The Beer Money feud is what has my interest piqued the most. I can’t wait to see what else develops between them. Looking forward to next week.


As far as the house shows are concerned, it’s a unique feature but I don’t think they added much to be honest. Other than the tension escalating between Beer Money and Eric Young’s new beard, I didn’t get too much out of it.
