TNA Thursday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
June 17, 2010


Thursday Night Impact begins with a video package recapping the events of the King of the Mountain Match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which took place at this past Sunday’s pay per view, the eight-year celebration of TNA Wrestling, Slammiversary VIII. We see highlights of the match, until showing the conclusion of the contest almost in its entirety with Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan attacking Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe and Mr. Anderson disposing of AJ Styles to climb the ladder and hang up the title, becoming the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion. The video comes to an end with Anderson sitting at the top of the ladder holding the title and Morgan, Storm and Wolfe stood with ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair on the stage, applauding Anderson for his victory.

Afterwards, the camera cuts to the parking lot where a white stretch limo is pulled up and the chauffeur opens the back door. Ric Flair is the first to step out, and he is followed by Desmond Wolfe, whose forehead is taped up, ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ James Storm and ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan, and the four of them, all wearing suits and shades, walk away side-by-side. Mike Tenay points out the absence of the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson, with his affiliation with the seemingly new group still in question after what happened this past Sunday at Slammiversary.

Then, the Impact opening credits play and “Change Me” blares out as the camera cuts into the Impact Zone, focusing on the pyro display on the stage. Once it is over, the camera pans the audience in the building, the vast majority of whom are cheering and waiting for the show to get underway. We then join Mike Tenay and Mick Foley at the announce table in front of the left hand side of the stage and they welcome us to the show, reflecting on Slammiversary VIII from this past Sunday and mainly focusing on the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Mr. Anderson, and the manner in which he won the title from AJ Styles. Tenay and Foley discuss Anderson’s possible affiliation with Ric Flair’s seemingly new group, before running through the card for tonight’s show.

Once they are done talking, “Four” blares out and Ric Flair walks through the curtain with Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan in tow, getting heat from the crowd. All four men make a four-fingered gesture with all but their index fingers held up as their pyro goes off before making their way down the ramp and Flair tells SoCal Val to hold down the middle rope, which she does as Flair, Morgan, Storm and Wolfe step into the ring. ‘The Nature Boy’ is handed a microphone by David Penzer and he stands in front of the other three men with a smirk on his face, taking off his shades and putting them in his jacket pocket before talking.

Ric Flair: Orlando, Florida... Wooooooooo!

The crowd just can’t help but ‘Wooooooooo’ back at Flair.

Ric Flair: Tonight is gonna be a great night. And do ya’ wanna know why? Because of this!

Flair turns around and points to Morgan, Storm and Wolfe, getting heat from the crowd.

Ric Flair: Do you people see what’s in the ring right now? It’s greatness! If you knew that, you’d all be down on your knees, bowing down, givin’ us your children and - Wooooooooo! - hollerin’ at the moon right now!

Ric takes a few deep breaths, before continuing.

Ric Flair: What we’ve got here, is three of the best wrestlers in the world today! You’ve got ‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ James Storm!

Huge heat for Storm, who has a smirk on his face.

Ric Flair: This guy right here, had the balls to smash a beer bottle over another guy’s head! He’s one of the dirtiest players in the game today! And James, forget about Beer Money, because you’re gonna be seein’ the green with Ric Flair!

Flair moves along the line, standing in front of Morgan as the heat continues.

Ric Flair: And this guy... is a seven-foot, three-hundred-and-ten-pounds of muscle, GIANT! He’s one of the meanest son-of-a-bitches in TNA, ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan! He sent that damn punk Hernandez back over the border to where he belongs!

Ric then moves along to Wolfe, standing in front of him with a grin on his face.

Ric Flair: And here we have-

Flair is cut off by the loud boos from the crowd.

Ric Flair: SHUT UP!

More heat.

Ric Flair: Everybody keep their damn mouths shut, and take a look at Desmond Wolfe!

The crowd boo the hell out of Wolfe, who scowls at the camera.

Ric Flair: This man, is a born fighter! He’s from the streets of England! He’s the real last man standing, and he beat that pot-smokin’ son-of-a-bitch RVD within an inch of his damn life last Sunday!

Even though he didn’t beat him.

Ric Flair: What we’ve got in this ring... it’s not recreating history, it’s making history! Forget about The Four Horsemen, this group is gonna be better than The Horsemen ever were! It’s TNA, and it’s Fortune!

Morgan, Storm and Wolfe all throw up the hand signal again behind Flair.

Ric Flair: It’s the four best in this business today... but we’ve only got three guys out here. There’s still one more piece of the jigsaw, and who better to be in the best collection of wrestlers in the world today... than the TNA World Heavyweight Champion!

Huge heat before Flair can even mention that man’s name.

Ric Flair: This guy needs no introduction... he is your new TNA World Heavyweight Champion... Wooooooooo! Mr. Anderson!

As Flair says that, “Feedback” blares out to huge heat from the crowd and the lights go out in the Impact Zone. A spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there, wearing a navy jacket over a ‘Pro wrestling is real, people are fake’ T-shirt, navy pants and sneakers. Not as stylish as Flair and the other guys, but Anderson does have the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which he is holding over his shoulders. Chewing away at some gum, Anderson saunters down the ramp and climbs onto the ring apron as Flair holds down the rope for him to enter the ring and Anderson receives a microphone from SoCal Val, standing opposite Flair and the rest of Fortune. Anderson looks at the microphone, before dropping it and reaching into the air, receiving his microphone which comes down from the ceiling instead.

Mr. Anderson: I- I just wanna thank you for the warm welcome, Ric, but before we get down to business I think it’s necessary that the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion... addresses his public.

Heat from the crowd, as Anderson clears his throat.

Mr. Anderson: My people... oh, my great people... I have just one thing to say to you all... WHO’S LAUGHIN’ NOW, ASSHOLES?!

Anderson laughs, as does Flair and the rest of Fortune as the Champ gets huge heat.

Mr. Anderson: You all thought there would be a fairytale ending to Slammiversary, that one of the good guys would win, but here I am, cold, heartless prick and proud, standing in front of you as your new TNA Heavyweight Champion of the frickin’ world!

More heat for Anderson, who spits his gum out of the ring.

Mr. Anderson: To think, that sweet little Ken Anderson would overcome the odds on his own...

The crowd boo, knowing that Anderson damn sure didn’t do it on his own.

Mr. Anderson: ... and win the best thing invented since... well, me.

‘You suck!’ chants surface in the Impact Zone, but a grinning Anderson ignores them.

Mr. Anderson: I guess you could say that I feel very... fortunate to be the World Champion, because now this is my house, and everybody else plays by my rules!

More heat. Hooray.

Mr. Anderson: But... I know the question that’s going through everybody’s mind right now. And that question... is whether Mr. Anderson is gonna join Fortune. Nice name by the way, lovin’ it, seriously.

Flair grins in response.

Mr. Anderson: And Ric, I do appreciate you and your boys coming out to, uh, cheer me on in my match last Sunday, and I appreciate the fact that you’re throwin’ this party for me... but y’see, Mr. Anderson plays for one team and one team only; his own.

Surprisingly, the crowd cheer as Flair’s grin quickly disappears.

Mr. Anderson: I don’t need back-up, I’m a big boy now, I’ve got this title... so Ric, the answer... is no.

The fans pop again as Anderson mouths ‘Sorry’ whilst smirking, obviously not showing sympathy, but Flair doesn’t seem in the mood for games.

Ric Flair: You’re not joining Fortune? Are you kidding me?! Are you serious?! If it wasn’t for us, you wouldn’t be the World Champion right now, do you understand me? Guys, guys... take him out.

With that said, Flair steps back and Morgan, Storm and Wolfe step forward, surrounding a defiant-looking Anderson. He looks like he is about to fight, but then AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam come out and run down the ramp, entering the ring and scaring Flair and Fortune away! The crowd go wild as Hardy, Styles and Van Dam dare Flair and his group to come back, but they instead walk away, stopping when they reach the stage. The trio turn around and see Anderson standing there, nodding his head at them as a sign of respect. Seemingly returning that respect for him not joining Fortune, AJ, Jeff and Rob leave Anderson be before raising each other’s hands in the air. Tenay and Foley talk about Anderson, discussing why he turned down Fortune and whether he could join AJ, Jeff, RVD and potentially more in opposing Fortune, before going to the first commercial break of the night.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, the camera is in a dark corridor behind Samoa Joe who is walking along in a T-shirt and jeans.

Cameraman: Joe! What are your thoughts on Mr. Anderson winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, and turning down Fortune?

Joe continues to walk, ignoring the cameraman.

Cameraman: Joe! Joe!

This time, Joe finally turns around and glares at the camera.

Samoa Joe: (Sighs) I don’t care whether Anderson’s with Fortune or not... Ric Flair and his guys still screwed me out of winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Slammiversary, and Ken’s got that title. So whether he’s with Fortune or against them... he’s still against me. Now get the hell out of here.

Joe turns back and walks away.

The camera cuts back to the Impact Zone, as “Rising Sun” blares out and Kiyoshi and Okada walk out, wearing matching black and gold jackets and pants. The mysterious duo walk down the ramp and enter the ring, waiting for their opponents. “LethalX” hits to cheers from the crowd and Jay Lethal and Amazing Red walk out, both wearing TNA shirts. Lethal and Red walk down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before simultaneously sliding under the ropes into the ring.

Match One
Team TNA (Amazing Red & Jay Lethal) vs. Team Japan (Kiyoshi & Okada)
World X Cup Tag Team Match

The bell rings and Jay Lethal and Okada climb out onto the ring apron in opposite corners of the ring, as it appears that Amazing Red and Kiyoshi will be starting off this World X Cup Tag Team Match. Kiyoshi and Red approach the middle of the ring and prepare to lock up, but Kiyoshi catches him off guard with a kick to the mid-section. He then gets Red in a headlock and takes him down to the mat. Red's shoulders are on the ground so the referee Mike Posey makes the count: One! A quick kick-out from Red. The high-flier from Brooklyn fights his way back to his feet and pushes Kiyoshi away into the ropes. He comes back off them, and Red hits him with a quick Spinning Heel Kick! Red springs back to his feet and claps his hands together, getting the crowd going, before getting Kiyoshi back to his feet. He takes the Japanese competitor towards the ring and holds out his hand for Jay Lethal to tag into the match. Lethal tags in and jumps over the ropes into the ring and Red wrenches Kiyoshi's arm around, Lethal running off the ropes and hitting Kiyoshi with a Double-Foot Dropkick to the mid-section! Jay quickly makes a cover: One! Two! Kick-out on two.

Lethal gets back to his feet and gets Kiyoshi to his feet, hitting him with an uppercut which sends him into the corner. He takes a few steps back before running towards his opponent, but Kiyoshi quickly jumps over the ropes out onto the ring apron, dodging the bullet. Lethal manages to stop himself before running directly into the turnbuckles, but Kiyoshi kicks him in the mid-section though the ropes and then jumps over the ropes, hitting Jay with a Slingshot DDT! Kiyoshi gets back to his feet and moves towards the corner of the ring, tagging Okada into the match. The tall Japanese competitor enters the ring and immediately capitalizes on Kiyoshi's work, viciously stomping away at Lethal before hitting an Elbow Drop into his back. Okada then gets him to his feet and kicks him in the gut, before getting him in a front facelock and hitting Lethal with a Snap Suplex. Okada subsequently makes the cover, yelling at the referee Posey in Japanese, One! Two! Lethal kicks out, much to Okada's chagrin.

This opening contest on Impact comes to an end with Amazing Red and Kiyoshi currently the legal men in the ring. Kiyoshi gets a groggy Red to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. After taking a quick breather, he runs across the ring towards the corner but Red counters with a kick to the mid-section. He climbs to the middle rope and sunset flips over Kiyoshi, keeping his legs around his waist, before nailing him with the Code Red! Red holds onto Kiyoshi's legs as the cover is made and Jay Lethal enters the ring, running across and knocking Okada off the ring apron! One! Two! Three!

Team TNA (Amazing Red & Jay Lethal) def. Team Japan (Kiyoshi & Okada) at 6:38

Red gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Slick Johnson to cheers from the crowd, Lethal entering the ring and embracing with Red. They raise each other’s hands into the air and Jay points to the TNA logo on the LED screen before leaving the ring with Red and walking up the ramp victorious. Tenay and Foley talk about Team TNA getting off to a winning start, gaining two points in the World X Cup table in the process, before going to a commercial break.

Back in the Impact Zone, “Symphony Plan” hits and Brian Kendrick walks out, getting a lukewarm reception from the crowd. Wearing a white jacket, Kendrick hurriedly walks down the ramp and enters the ring, removing his jacket and throwing it to the floor outside the ring. Then, “Catholifunk” blares out to a big pop and the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero walks out, wearing a black bandana, facemask, jacket and shades. With his title strapped around his waist, Dinero saunters down the ramp with a swagger in his step, pausing and outstretching his arms as money falls from the ceiling before he steps into the ring. Dinero removes his entrance attire and unstraps the title from around his waist, handing it to the referee Slick Johnson who holds it up in the air before passing it out of the ring.

Match Two
D’Angelo Dinero © vs. Brian Kendrick
TNA Global Championship

D'Angelo Dinero watches as his TNA Global Championship is passed out of the ring, but as Dinero's back is turned Brian Kendrick runs up behind him and rolls him up with a Schoolboy! One! Two! No! Dinero kicks out, avoiding a huge upset in the first seconds of the match! Both competitors get back to their feet and Kendrick continues his bright start to the match, unleashing some rapid kicks against Dinero's legs before running off the ropes, but Dinero brings him back down to Earth with an Arm Drag. 'The Pope' holds onto Kendrick's arm and transitions it into a Cross Armbreaker, but Brian frantically moves across the mat and holds onto the bottom rope as the referee Andrew Thomas forces Dinero to let go. He gets back to his feet and gets Kendrick up, shoving him into the corner and walking towards him. Dinero hits Brian with some knife-edge Chops to the chest which get 'Woooooo's from the crowd in the Impact Zone, before taking him down to the mat with a Snapmare.

Dinero runs off the ropes and goes for a boot to the head of Kendrick, but misses as Brian lies flat on his back on the mat. After he misses, Kendrick sits up again and rolls up Dinero with a Schoolboy, shades of the beginning of the match! One! Two! He fails again, as Dinero kicks out. They get back to their feet again and come to a standstill, Kendrick pulling his hair and grinning at the TNA Global Champion before running at him but Dinero renders him docile with a kick to the mid-section. He then hits Brian with three consecutive elbows to the skull before performing some theatrics and capping it off with a fourth and final elbow, which knocks Kendrick to the mat! Moments later he gets back to his feet and Dinero runs off the ropes, charging towards Kendrick and hitting him with a Running Forearm Smash! 'The Pope' springs back to his feet and drags Kendrick by his arms into the corner of the ring, before backing into the opposite corner. Dinero then runs across the ring and handstands on the top rope, before nailing Kendrick with the Outer Limitz Elbow! Dinero gets back to his feet and walks into the middle of the ring, bowing for the crowd who respond with cheers.

Dinero continues to dominate Kendrick for the rest of the match, and after Dropkicking him into the corner, he hits Kendrick with the DDE, before covering: One! Two! Three!

D’Angelo Dinero © def. Brian Kendrick to retain the TNA Global Championship at 5:23

Dinero gets up and has his hand raised by Andrew Thomas, then pulling away and walking towards the corner of the ring to receive his TNA Global Championship belt from SoCal Val. ‘The Pope’ then climbs to the second rope and holds up his title triumphantly before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, high-fiving some fans and picking up a dollar from the ground to show to the camera. Dinero drops it to the ground and walks away, disappearing behind the curtain. Tenay and Foley talk about his victory and say that he has never been higher in the TNA ranks after beating Sting in his last match at Slammiversary.

The camera then cuts backstage in Fortune’s locker room, where Ric Flair is sat with Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan. They are all watching a television screen.

Ric Flair: Impressive, huh? That’s a fine piece of gold Dinero’s got there... but it’s gotta come to Fortune.

Everybody nods their heads in agreement.

Ric Flair: Morgan... you up for a challenge?

Matt Morgan: Challenge? (Scoffs) Please. I could take that title from Dinero in the blink of an eye.

Ric Flair: (Smiles) Good. And don’t worry... our fourth member will be with us by the end of the night. This has been pretty fun, huh?

Flair laughs with everybody else, before we go to a break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, the camera is backstage where Angelina Love is walking around with a PO’d look on her face.

Angelina Love: Tara! Tara!

Love sees Sarita and Taylor Wilde nearby, and walks towards them.

Angelina Love: Have you seen Tara anywhere?

Taylor Wilde: No, sorry.

Angelina sighs before walking away, but she is then attacked from behind... by Tara! Love falls to the floor and an angry Tara repeatedly kicks her before kneeling down and holding Angelina up, pummeling her with blows to the head. She then gets Love to her feet, and hurls her into the wall! Love falls to the ground and Tara walks towards her, looking to inflict more damage, but she is held back by Sarita and Taylor Wilde. The camera cuts to the announce table with Tenay and Foley who both look shocked, and they talk about what they just saw, putting it down to Angelina accidentally costing Tara her match against Daffney this past Sunday at Slammiversary, in the process costing Tara the TNA Knockouts Championship and her pet Spider, Poison.

Then, “My Generation” hits to cheers from the crowd and Generation Me walk out, posing back-to-back on the stage before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. Both Max and Jeremy Buck climb to the second rope in opposite corners and get the fans going before climbing back down. Then, “Invasion” plays and The British Invasion emerge from behind the curtain, getting heat from the crowd. Douglas Williams and Magnus both perform their trademark pose before walking down the ramp and stepping into the ring, Magnus calling for a microphone and getting one.

Magnus: Fear not, my friends, because Dougie Huggie and the Mag Daddy are in the house!

Heat from the crowd.

Magnus: A house filled with fat, unemployed slobs, saddos... and two bloody teenage boys, apparently, standing opposite us.

More heat, as a ‘You suck!’ chant starts.

Magnus: Not for any of you.

Magnus hands the microphone over to Williams.

Douglas Williams: And after we show these muppets here how to wrestle, and how to look, myself and Magnus shall move onto greater things... the TNA World Tag Team Championships.

Magnus motions around his waist.

Douglas Williams: Sabin, Shelley... we made it clear to you last week that after Slammiversary we were going to be on the hunt. And being the majestic souls that we are, we’re not going to let down.

Magnus: Now, on July 11 it is the next TNA pay per view, Victory Road. Water Pistols, we want you boys in a match at Victory Road for your TNA World Tag Team Championships.

Mixed reaction.

Magnus: Feel free to bring posters, books, shirts, whatever you like, for us to sign because it’s no secret that we... are all about the people.

Magnus winks at the camera, before continuing.

Magnus: Just make sure you bring your belts with you though... because they’re coming from the boys, to the men.

‘The Mag Daddy’ puts the microphone down, as the match begins.

Match Three
The British Invasion vs. Generation Me
Tag Team Match

Douglas Williams and Jeremy Buck both climb out onto the ring apron in opposite corners of the ring and Magnus and Max Buck approach the middle of the ring. Magnus and Max lock up, and Magnus overpowers him, forcing Buck into the corner of the ring. The referee Slick Johnson gets in the middle of them and a smirking Magnus backs away, holding his hands up in innocence, but when the referee steps out of the way the Englishman wastes no time in running at Max and driving his knee into his mid-section! Magnus takes a moment to taunt the crowd, styling his hair before grabbing Buck and throwing him to the mat in the middle of the ring. Magnus walks towards him, but Max turns over onto his back and kicks Magnus in the sternum, forcing him away. Buck springs back to his feet and Magnus runs at him, but Max counters with a Tilt-a-Whirl Headscissors Takedown! Buck quickly crawls along the mat and hooks Magnus' legs, making the cover: One! Two! Magnus kicks out. Max gets back to his feet and gets Magnus to his feet, taking him towards the corner of the ring.

Max wrenches Magnus' arm around and holds his hand out, as Jeremy tags himself into the match and immediately climbs to the top rope. He jumps from the top rope and hits a Double-Foot Stomp onto Magnus' arm, as Max climbs out onto the ring apron. Jeremy makes the cover: One! Two! Magnus kicks out again. Buck gets back up and gets Magnus to his feet, hitting him with some kicks to the mid-section before running off the ropes, but Magnus hits him with a Powerslam out of no where! The seemingly-fixed smirk on the face of Magnus is now gone, as he looks down at Jeremy with a scowl on his face. He gets back to his feet and grabs Buck by his hair, pulling him up to his feet and walking towards the corner of the ring to tag Douglas Williams into the match. Magnus holds Jeremy up as Williams directs repeated blows to Jeremy's mid-section until the referee Slick Johnson forces Magnus to leave the ring and Jeremy falls to the mat, Williams stomping away at him viciously before getting him back up and hitting him with a European Uppercut which sends him staggering backwards.

This Tag Team contest comes to an end with Douglas Williams and Max Buck as the legal competitors in the match. After fighting away valiantly for a while without results, Max manages to take control with a Headscissors Bulldog. He has Williams on the back of his shoulders ready to go for the Rolling Fireman's Carry Slam, but Douglas slips off his shoulders and grabs Max, running forwards and forcing him into the corner. Williams rolls backwards holding onto Buck, and hits him with the Chaos Theory! The referee Slick Johnson makes the count as Magnus enters the ring and holds Jeremy back from breaking up the count: One! Two! Three!

The British Invasion def. Generation Me at 6:51

Williams gets up and ignores the referee Slick Johnson, instead waiting for Magnus to enter the ring and when he does they raise each other’s hands in the air with smirks on their faces. The British duo both motion around their waists that they are the next TNA World Tag Team Champions before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, having secured a valuable victory over Generation Me.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, the camera is in the locker room of The Motor City Machine Guns. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin appear to be looking at the wall with great interest when Jeremy Borash walks in, with a microphone.

Jeremy Borash: Guys, can I have a minute of your time?

Alex Shelley: Can’t you see we’re busy here?

Shelley turns back to watching the wall.

Chris Sabin: Come on Alex, let the man talk. He has nothing better to do.

Jeremy Borash: Thanks... I presume you heard about The British Invasion’s challenge to a match for your TNA World Tag Team Championships at Victory Road?

Alex Shelley: ... no. We were watching the show, but when those guys came out we switched over to the wall, it got painted earlier so we’re supervising it. But if they challenged us to a match at Victory Road then they can have it.

Chris Sabin: We’re fighting Champions, we’ll take on anybody, especially two guys that we were robbed of a clean victory against last week. So Brutus, Doug-

Alex Shelley: Hey! It’s Magnus and Douglas now, get it right.

Chris Sabin: Whatever... we’ll see you guys at Victory Road.

Sabin and Shelley then turn back, as the camera cuts away.

In the Impact Zone, Jethro Holliday is already in the ring, jobber-style, as “Country” fades out. Then, “Four” blares out to great heat from the crowd and James Storm walks out, wearing a cowboy hat, shades, and ablack jacket and holding a beer bottle in his hand. He takes a drink of beer before holding up Fortune’s hand signal with his other hand as his pyro goes off before sauntering down the ramp, stepping into the ring. Storm takes another drink before putting his bottle down in the corner and removing his entrance attire.

Match Four
James Storm vs. Jethro Holliday
Singles Match

The bell rings and a defiant Jethro Holliday immediately charges towards James Storm, but Storm instantly wipes him out with a Clothesline! Holliday goes down to the mat and even Storm looks surprised at how easy that was, before he begins to ruthlessly stomp away at Jethro until the referee Jamie Tucker stops him. An impatient Storm reluctantly backs away, but when Holliday slowly gets back to his feet Storm runs forward and drives his knee into his gut, before running off the ropes and hitting Jethro with a Running Knee Lift! 'The Tennessee Cowboy' thinks about making the cover, dropping to his knees, but he changes his mind and climbs on top of his opponent to pummel him with blows to the head. James then climbs off and gets Holliday to his feet, but Jethro begins to fight back with some blows to the mid-section. He then hits Storm with some right hands before running off the ropes and charging towards him, but James stops him in his tracks with a kick to the gut, hooks his arms, and hits Holliday with a Double Underhook Suplex! Storm gets back to his feet and taunts the crowd by holding up the Fortune hand sign, getting a lot of heat, before he gets Jethro back up.

Storm continues to dominate Holliday and the match comes to an end when James puts Jethro's head in between his legs and lifts him up, holding onto his arms, and he spins Holliday around in the air before dropping him to the mat, connecting with the Eye of the Storm! Storm drops to his knees and makes the cover, this match surely sealed now: One! Two! No, Storm lifts Holliday's head up off the mat! A grinning Storm shakes his head, saying 'Not yet, boy' before getting to his feet and walking towards the corner of the ring. James waits impatiently for Holliday to get up, slamming his foot against the mat repeatedly, and when Holliday finally does get back to his feet Storm damn near takes his head off with the Last Call! James subsequently makes the cover, hooking the legs: One! Two! Three!

James Storm def. Jethro Holliday at 4:03

Storm gets back to his feet and ignores the referee, immediately calling for a microphone. SoCal Val gets one and passes it to James, who snatches it out of her hand and walks into the middle of the ring, waiting for the heat from the crowd to die down before talking.

James Storm: Bobby Roode! Did ya’ see that?! Huh?! That’s what’s gonna happen to you if ya’ dare drag your ass back into Fortune’s ring!

Major heat from the crowd, which Storm ignores.

James Storm: You were damn lucky to beat me at Slammiversary, Bobby, but it’s alright ‘cause I was the winner in the end, wasn’t I? Just ask the stitches in your damn head you must have right now! I could be wrong, seeing as I haven’t seen your sorry ass ‘round here since Sunday, but I probably am.

Storm laughs, as he continues to get heat.

James Storm: If ya’ know what’s good for ya’, Bobby, then you better stay at home ‘cause it won’t just be me, your ‘best friend’, you have to fight... it’ll be the whole of Fortune!

‘The Tennessee Cowboy’ sees Jethro Holliday slowly getting to his feet, and he picks up his beer bottle.

James Storm: And if Slammiversary was too much for ya’... then ya’ won’t like this.

Storm turns to Holliday, and smashes the beer bottle over Holliday’s skull! The crowd boo the hell out of Storm, who turns back to the camera and now has a sadistic grin on his face.

James Storm: Sorry ‘bout your damn luck.

James drops the microphone and leaves the ring as “Four” hits again to tremendous heat from the crowd. Storm sees a sign on the front row saying ‘It pays to be Roode’ and snatches it from the fan holding it, ripping it in half and throwing it to the ground before walking away, satisfied with his actions. In the ring, Holliday is busted open and blood flows from his forehead as road agents and medics rush to the ring to check on his condition after being struck by a beer bottle much like Robert Roode last Sunday.

The camera cuts backstage, where Eric Bischoff is standing in the parking lot with his hands in his pockets, looking around, when a black Hummer pulls up and the door opens. None other than Hulk Hogan steps out, getting a big pop from the crowd, and Hogan walks towards Bischoff who has a grin on his face, shaking hands with each other.

Eric Bischoff: Hulk! How you doing, man? Good to have you back.

Hulk Hogan: I’m doing good, brother. How’s things been around here with me gone?

Eric Bischoff: OK, OK. Good to have you back on the team though man, whaddya’ say we go and get a bite to eat?

Hogan nods his head in approval.

Eric Bischoff: You go ahead, I’ll catch you up. Got a quick phone call to make.

Hulk Hogan: Alright.

Hogan walks away, and Bischoff takes his phone out of his pocket, dialling a number and holding the phone to his ear as we go to another commercial break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back from the break, the camera is in AJ Styles’ locker room. He is sat down adjusting his elbow pad on his right arm, when the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson walks in, wearing a ‘Wrestling is real, people are fake’ T-shirt over his ring gear and holding his newly-won title over his shoulder.

AJ Styles: I guess you’re enjoying being the new World Champion, huh?

AJ stands up and gets in Anderson’s face.

AJ Styles: Well you sure as hell don’t deserve it.

Mr. Anderson: Look, I know you think that along with a lot of other people. But I’m serious, I had no idea that Ric Flair and his guys were gonna interfere on Sunday. And come on, man... I was the only guy in the ring, I had that title in my hands, the title that I’ve worked my ass off since I came to this company to win... I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Styles, looking at the ground, slowly nods his head.

Mr. Anderson: I’m sorry you lost the title the way that you did, but you’ve got a rematch against me tonight, one-on-one, and the best man will win. Then we’ll know who deserves this title. I just want a fair match tonight.

Anderson extends his hand to Styles, and the former World Champion looks sceptical, but nonetheless shakes his hand, the camera zooming in on the handshake.

Mr. Anderson: I’ll see you out there, man.

Anderson nods his head at AJ before leaving the room, as the camera cuts away.

Back in the Impact Zone, “Watch Out, Watch Out” hits to heat from the crowd and Team 3D make their way out, posing as their pyro goes off before heading to the announce table. Ray and Devon take seats in between Tenay and Foley and are immediately asked why they are out here, Ray saying they are still in the hunt for the TNA World Tag Team Championships and both the competitors in the next match are in tag teams so they want to see what they’ll have to go through to get their title shot.

“Nightmare” plays and Shane Helms walks out accompanied by Shannon Moore, getting cheers from the crowd. Helms and Moore walk down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before Helms enters the ring with Moore staying on the outside. Then, “To Live And Die In LAX” blares out to a decent pop and Hernandez walks out with Homicide. With the Latin American Exchange seemingly officially reunited now, the duo make their way down the ramp, Homicide making the LAX hand gesture to the camera as Hernandez enters the ring. He climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses for the crowd before climbing back down.

Match Five
Hernandez vs. Shane Helms
Singles Match

The bell rings for the match to get underway and Hernandez and Shane Helms approach the middle of the ring, giving each other a nod of the head as a sign of mutual respect before locking up. Helms immediately goes for Hernandez's arm and wrenches it around, then trying to bend his wrist back as far as possible, but Hernandez floors him with a leg sweep. He then runs off the ropes and jumps over Shane who rolls over onto his stomach before running off the ropes again. Helms springs back to his feet and goes for a Dropkick, but Hernandez manages to hold onto the ropes to stop himself and Shane's Dropkick fails to connect as he instead falls to the mat. Hernandez quickly capitalizes and hits Helms with an Elbow Drop to the sternum, followed by a somewhat optimistic cover attempt, One! Unsurprisingly, Shane kicks out. Hernandez gets Helms back to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring. He then runs towards him, but Helms counters with a boot to the face. A groggy Hernandez turns around upon impact, and Shane then hits 'Super Mex' with a Bulldog, driving his face into the canvas! Helms turns Hernandez over onto his back and makes the cover, One! Two! Kick-out on two from Hernandez.

Helms gets back to his feet and gets Hernandez up, hitting him with some knife-edge Chops to the chest which get 'Woooooo's from the crowd. He then runs off the ropes and goes for a Cross Body, but Hernandez catches him, showing his immense strength. Hernandez then goes for a Swinging Side Slam, but Helms manages to counter it into a Tornado DDT! Helms and Hernandez lie on the mat side-by-side momentarily, until Shane hooks the legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Hernandez kicks out! Helms slowly gets back to his feet and walks towards the corner of the ring, climbing out onto the ring apron before climbing to the top rope. Shane eagerly waits for Hernandez to get to his feet, and when Hernandez is back up Helms flies from the top rope, connecting with a Missile Dropkick! Shane manages to make the cover seconds later, could this be it? One! Two! No! Hernandez gets the shoulder up on two-and-a-half! Helms gets back to his feet and gets Hernandez up, Irish whipping him into the ropes. Hernandez holds onto the ropes and Shane runs towards him, but 'Super Mex' holds down the top rope and Helms goes tumbling out of the ring and down to the concrete floor on the outside!

In the ring, Hernandez gets back to his feet and sees Helms outside the ring. He waits for Shane to get back up, before running off the ropes behind him and charging across the ring, flying over the top rope and taking out Helms with the Big Man Dive! Hernandez and Helms lie motionlessly on the concrete floor as the crowd cheer and chant 'TNA! TNA! TNA!' We see a replay of that Big Man Dive, and when we return to the action the referee Earl Hebner begins the count: One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! The two competitors begin to get back to their feet. Seven! Eight! Nine! Hernandez and Helms get back in the ring just before the ten count. The two competitors slowly get back to their feet and slowly begin to trade blows. Helms gains the upper hand in the exchange, landing consecutive right hands, and he then runs off the ropes, but Hernandez runs off the ropes too and as they run towards each other Hernandez hits Helms with the Mexican Boulder Shoulder! Shane goes flying towards the corner upon impact from that Running Shoulder Block and Hernandez walks towards his opponent, standing over him. He grabs Helms by the throat with both hands and shows amazing strength by lifting him up to his feet, and as soon as Helms' feet touch the mat Hernandez throws him across the ring with the Crackerjack!

After that, Hernandez primarily has the upper hand for the rest of the match with Helms managing to get some offence in, and this contest comes to an end when Helms takes Hernandez down with a Spinning Heel Kick. Moments later, a tiring Helms walks towards the corner of the ring and slowly climbs to the top rope, his back turned to the ring, but before Shane can do anything up there Hernandez gets back to his feet and runs towards the corner, hitting him with a clubbing blow to the back. Hernandez then turns around and lifts Helms up by the arms, before throwing Helms across the ring and down to the canvas with the Border Toss! 'Super Mex' follows his opponent and drops to his knees, hooking the legs and making the cover which must surely end this match: One! Two! Three!

Hernandez def. Shane Helms at 7:16

Hernandez gets to his feet and has his hand raised by Earl Hebner to cheers from the crowd, immediately climbing to the second rope in the corner and posing for the crowd. He climbs down as Homicide enters the ring and raises Hernandez’s hand in the air, while Shannon Moore checks on Helms. Moore helps Helms to his feet and the two duos stand face-to-face, Hernandez and Homicide extending their hands to Helms and Moore respectively and they accept the gesture, then raising each other’s hands in the air. At the announce table Team 3D talk about that showing of respect, saying handshakes and friendships won’t win them the titles, before abruptly leaving.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back from the break, we see an interview from this past Sunday, following Slammiversary. Kurt Angle is sat up on a bed in the medical room in his ring gear with sweat dripping from his forehead and Christy Hemme is with him.

Christy Hemme: I’m here with Kurt Angle, who tonight was unsuccessful in winning the King of the Mountain Match for the unprecedented third time, missing out on becoming the TNA World Heavyweight Champion in the process. Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan interfered in the match under Ric Flair’s orders and took out yourself, Jeff Hardy and Samoa Joe, allowing Mr. Anderson to become the new Champion tonight, what are your thoughts on that?

Kurt Angle: I’m still pretty surprised at what happened. It all happened so quickly, and I don’t know if Mr. Anderson has any links with Flair and his other guys but he sure as hell didn’t deserve to win tonight. Ever since Lockdown in April I’ve been thinking about taking some time off to rest, regroup and heal my injuries and seeing as I didn’t win the title tonight, I’m gonna take that time off. I don’t know when I’ll be back but when I do I’ll be in top condition and I’ll be coming for Mr. Anderson and Desmond, James and Matt for costing me, as well as AJ, Jeff and Joe the title tonight because Anderson was the last guy who deserved to win the match.

Angle then lies back on the bed, visibly in pain as the screen fades to black.

---

Back on Impact, Rob Van Dam is stood in a dark corridor backstage, up against the wall.

Rob Van Dam: I don’t know what the hell’s going on with Mr. Anderson, one second he’s joking around with Ric Flair and Fortune, not to mention the fact that they helped him win the title last Sunday, and the next he’s turning them down and trying to make us think he’s turned over a new leaf. Well I’m not buying into it one bit, and I hope nobody else is either.

Van Dam strokes his stubbly jaw for a few seconds, before continuing.

Rob Van Dam: As for Desmond Wolfe, my problems with him are still far from over after neither of us won last Sunday, and like I said before, I’m not gonna let up until I beat him in a match, so it’s not over until RVD says it’s over.

RVD walks along and enters his locker room, shutting the door behind him.

Elsewhere, we see a split-screen of both the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson and AJ Styles on their way to the ring. Tenay tells us the main event is coming up next, before going to the final commercial break of the night.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back from the break, “Get Ready To Fly” blares out to a big pop from the crowd and pyro rain falls from the ceiling down onto the stage. As it stops, we see AJ Styles with his back turned, the logo on the back of his navy blue jacket visible. Styles then turns around and flicks his hood back, posing for the crowd before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and stepping into the ring. AJ poses for the crowd again and then removes his jacket, walking into the corner. Then, “Feedback” hits and the lights go out in the Impact Zone, getting a very strong mixed reaction from the crowd. A spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there, wearing a T-shirt over his ring gear with his TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt strapped around his waist. Anderson walks down the ramp and enters the ring, unstrapping the title from around his waist and giving it to the referee Dave Hebner, then removing his shirt and standing in the corner opposite his opponent. Jeremy Borash enters the ring and stands in the middle, waiting to begin the introductions for this main event title match.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, The following contest, live from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, is your main event match of the night and it is for the TNA Heavyweight Championship of the World!

Cheers from the crowd.

Jeremy Borash: When the bell rings, the man in charge is Dave Hebner.

'My dad screwed Bret'.

Jeremy Borash: And now... introducing the challenger. He stands in the corner to my left. He hails from Gainesville, Georgia... he weighed in this morning at 218 pounds... he is 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles!

Big pop for Styles who throws his arms out to the side, posing for the crowd, before the camera cuts back to Borash.

Jeremy Borash: Standing in the corner to my right. He hails from Green Bay, Wisconsin... he weighed in this morning at 247 pounds... he is the reigning, defending TNA Heavyweight Champion of the World.... Mr. Anderson!

Mixed reaction for Anderson, who nods his head in approval. Hebner holds the belt high in the air for all to see, letting AJ and Anderson both look at it before passing it out of the ring.

Match Six

TNA World Heavyweight Championship

The bell rings for the match to get underway and AJ Styles and Mr. Anderson approach the middle of the ring, having a staredown as the anticipation builds amongst the crowd in the Impact Zone. Anderson breaks the ice by extending his hand to AJ and Styles looks around the audience to see what they think, before turning back to Anderson and reluctantly shaking his hand much like he did earlier in the night. Anderson nods his head and claps his hands together repeatedly, getting the crowd going as the two competitors circle each other around the ring for a few moments before locking up. They try to overpower each other but both fail, so Anderson and Styles both let go and come to a standstill again but AJ breaks it by kicking Ken in the mid-section. Styles hits Anderson with some right hands before going for an Irish whip, but Ken reverses it with an Irish whip of his own and sends AJ away. He comes back off the ropes and Anderson lies down on the mat for Styles to jump over him and run off the ropes again. Styles comes back and Anderson goes for a Clothesline but AJ ducks it and when Ken turns around Styles hits him with a picture-perfect Dropkick!

'The Phenomenal One' springs back to his feet and throws his arms out, shouting 'That's why I'm the best in the world!' Anderson retreats into the corner of the ring and uses the ropes to pull himself to his feet, applauding Styles for his effort and getting the crowd to cheer AJ too. Styles looks confused, but soon shakes it off and runs towards Anderson in the corner. The TNA World Heavyweight Champion stops AJ in his tracks with a Shoulder Thrust to the mid-section and he then gets Styles in a front facelock before planting him on the canvas with a Suplex. Anderson then makes the cover: One! Two! Kick-out right on two from AJ. Anderson gets back to his feet and gets Styles up, Irish whipping him into the ropes. Ken bends over in preparation for a Back Body Drop, but AJ instead pins Anderson with a Small Package, catching the Champ off-guard! One! Two! Anderson kicks out! Both men get back to their feet and Ken smirks at Styles, saying 'You almost had me there' before running at him but AJ stops him in his tracks with a forearm to the face. Anderson drops to one knee as a result and Styles runs off the ropes, nailing Ken in the cranium with an Enzuigiri!

Anderson falls to the mat and AJ immediately hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! Anderson gets the shoulder up! Styles gets back to his feet and gets Ken to his feet. AJ runs off the ropes, but as he does Anderson quickly moves out of the way and rolls under the ropes out of the ring. The crowd, which Anderson is trying to win over, boo him as he turns his back to the ring and holds his head in pain, probably after the Enzuigiri he received. Meanwhile, AJ sees him there and he looks around the crowd in the Impact Zone who cheer him before running off the ropes and sprinting across the ring, and just as Anderson turns around to face the ring Styles flies over the top rope and takes out Anderson with the Fosbury Flop! AJ and Ken lie on the floor as the crowd in the Impact Zone go wild and chant 'TNA! TNA! TNA!' as per usual. We see a replay of that outstanding Fosbury Flop from Styles before rejoining the action and the referee begins the count: One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Six! AJ gets back up and re-enters the ring. Seven! Eight! Anderson gets back to his feet. Nine! Anderson gets back in the ring just before the count of ten, the crowd responding with a mixed reaction.

As soon as Anderson gets back to his feet, Styles grabs his arm and jumps up, rolling his opponent forward, and locking Anderson in a Cross Armbar! The TNA World Heavyweight Champion writhes in pain, reaching his free arm out in the direction of the ropes but he can't quite reach. However, Ken manages to edge his way across the ring and he makes it to the ropes, as AJ is forced to let go of Anderson's arm by the referee Dave Hebner. Styles gets back to his feet and waits for Ken to get back up. When he is back up, AJ runs towards him, but Anderson quickly lifts Styles onto the back of his shoulders and nails him with a Rolling Fireman's Carry Slam! Ken slowly turns around and hooks AJ's legs, making the cover: One! Two! No! Styles gets the shoulder up on two-and-a-half! Anderson slowly gets back up with a disappointed look on his face having not put AJ away with that Rolling Fireman's Carry Slam. He moves towards the corner and slowly climbs to the top rope, going for the Kenton Bomb... but Styles moves out of the way! Anderson goes crashing into the mat having missed his target and moments later AJ gets back to his feet. He waits for Ken to get back up, and when he eventually does, Styles jumps onto the ropes, springboard moonsaults off them landing next to Anderson, and nails him with the Stylin' DDT!

This match comes to an end with AJ Styles seemingly closing in on the victory and the resulting reclamation of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which he lost under very controversial circumstances last Sunday at Slammiversary. However, Mr. Anderson has just gained the upper hand following a Neckbreaker after Styles missed a Clothesline. Anderson gets AJ to his feet and gets him in position for the Mic Drop, but 'The Phenomenal One' fights out of it with some elbows to the head, and when Ken turns to face him Styles nails him with the Pelé Kick! Anderson falls to the mat and Styles then puts Ken's head in between his legs. AJ throws his arms out to the side, motioning for the Styles Clash... but before he can get Anderson in position, Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan run out with Ric Flair and run to the ring! Styles pushes Ken down to the mat as he is ambushed by Morgan, Storm and Wolfe and the referee Dave Hebner has no choice but to call for the bell, ending this match with a disqualification victory for AJ which means he wins but doesn't get the title!

AJ Styles def. Mr. Anderson via DQ at 10:32

The bell rings repeatedly and the crowd boo as Morgan, Storm and Wolfe continue to assault Styles, all taking turns at stomping away at him while Anderson rolls out of the ring. Ric Flair watches outside the ring with a grin on his face as the attack continues, but meanwhile Anderson takes a Steel Chair and re-enters the ring, scaring Fortune away with the Chair! The crowd cheer Anderson, seemingly having accepted him now, and he dares the three of them to come back in the ring, shouting ‘Come on! I’ll kick all of your asses right now!’ Anderson drops the Chair on the mat and helps Styles to his feet, raising his hand in the air to more cheers from the crowd. Fortune continue to stand outside the ring and Ken lets go of AJ’s hand, locking eyes with Flair. Anderson is handed his title belt and he turns around to face AJ...

ANDERSON HITS STYLES WITH THE BELT! AJ GOES DOWN!

The crowd boo the hell out of Anderson who gets back to his feet and can’t stop laughing, and neither can Fortune. Flair, Morgan, Storm and Wolfe all enter the ring and greet Anderson, all shaking hands with him as the Champion turns to the crowd and shouts ‘You fell for it!’ repeatedly. Anderson is then lifted into the air by Morgan and Storm and holds his title belt high in the air to huge heat from the crowd with everybody else holding up the four-fingered hand gesture as “Four” blares out. We see the closing image of Fortune celebrating with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship held high in the air by Anderson, as trash is thrown into the ring by the livid fans and Styles lies motionlessly on the canvas...

We’re not done?

No, we are not. The camera cuts backstage, where D’Angelo Dinero, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam are crowded around a small area and the camera rushes towards the scene, finding some space in a gap... and revealing Hulk Hogan lying on the floor unconscious, blood dripping from his forehead and his T-shirt ripped. Dinero, Hardy and Van Dam repeatedly call for help, the camera showing a lifeless Hogan as we go off the air...

Impact Feedback


Nice way to start the show off with the highlights of the King of the Mountain Match, namely featuring the run in from Flair and co obviously being the big thing headed into this show. The focus continuing all of the way along to the opening promo with the showing of Flair and co arriving in a limo and the commentators hyping up what happened was good too.

Obvious choice to start the show with promo-wise that simply had to be done. Just getting it out of the way now, but that orange is very hard to read when it’s not bolded. That might be something you want to change in the future, because it really is a pain in the ass. Good start from Flair in talking up the three men as a collective, before really selling them as individuals, talking about their individual qualities and what they did at Slammiversary well. Not so sure about Flair straight out mentioning that RVD smokes weed because when they do reference it, they at least try to make it more subtle, but that’s just a small thing. I don’t mind you using the Fortune name for this either because it’s quite a good name in itself. Plus actually having four members (with the introduction of Anderson) makes a lot more sense than TNA having five billion members irl at one stage. Anderson as the head of the group tops it off pretty well with him being champion and all as well. Just a small thing, but I would have preferred to have seen Anderson comply with the dress code of wearing at least a suit jacket, because we’ve seen him do it in the past and look rather dapper. Having him dressed almost in a trashy way seems a bit odd when he’s just been announced as the final member of Fortune. Anderson talking himself up as a bad guy and mocking the crowd, laughing at them was nice, as was his arrogance in declaring that he won all on his own and that he’s the greatest. Anderson then turning down Fortune and seemingly turning face is very odd after he bagged the hell out of the fans before. It seems like it has definitely got to be a swerve with the way Anderson has continued to be a total heel, but I guess you never know. Fortune never actually getting their hands on Anderson leaves the possibility that is indeed a swerve though with the run ins at the end. Anyway, a pretty well written promo to start the show off here, with the characterization of both Flair and Anderson being good.

Nice little promo from Joe, giving his big decisive statement that shows that he’s still chasing the TNA Title. Only a small promo, but that’s probably best for Joe so he can look like the badass that he is.

It seemed like a nice enough match to start off the World X Cup, giving Team TNA the good start you’d expect, but one thing that irked me a little about your writing is how you jump from the beginning of the match to the end. It really leaves next to no ability to incorporate any psychology in the match and gives us just about no context. Just a couple of lines of what happened through the middle portion of the match would help your match writing out greatly imo.

Nice to see Dinero keeping his momentum going after his big victory at Slammiversary, although I was a little disappointed this was a complete squash match. I just felt Kendrick should have at least got some offense in, especially if the match is going to go for five minutes. Still, it’s good to see you keeping Dinero’s momentum high after beating Sting in his last match.

Nice way to set up Morgan going after Dinero with a simple promo to show Fortune is all about the gold. You have to love Morgan’s arrogance in this promo too. I’m a little unsure about the fourth member definitely being revealed tonight, because that makes it seem certain that this business with Anderson is definitely a swerve. Why would Flair have a backup member lined up after all? He’s a confident guy and would surely believe that he would never be turned down, especially after helping a guy to win the world title. I just think you’re making it a bit obvious that this will be a swerve with that little line. It seems harmless, but you can’t help but think that Anderson MUST be the final member.

I quite like that you’re giving the knockouts a little extra exposure by having a non-title feud also going on, although I think Daffney should be appearing on your show every week since she’s champion. It seems like she’s not going to this week, and to me, that harms your division and the exposure they’re getting.

While I like the rebranding of The British Invasion to Douglas Williams and Magnus to make them seem more badass and sophisticated at the same time, the Dougie Huggie line sounds completely the opposite and almost seems like an insult. Still, with that said, this was a solid promo from the Brits, with some nice cheap heat used with the insults to the crowd and GenMe, along with the challenge being brought up in a good way. Nice final line to the promo too.

Simple match to go about getting the Brits some momentum as they had into a likely tag title match with The Guns. A clean win does the job of making them look like a threat to The Guns just fine.

Okay was to play on the not so serious nature of The Guns by having them accept the challenge, while also mocking the Brits. I thought that while the idea was okay, the dialogue maybe didn’t flow as naturally as it could have, but with that said it still gets the job done.

Like with the Dinero match, I thought the squash went on a little long, as you could probably have it go for a three minute maximum. Regardless, this was still a good way to keep Storm’s momentum high, despite the loss to Roode at Slammiversary thanks to his inclusion in Fortune and also injuring Roode.

I actually really liked this Storm promo. The little things like calling it Fortune’s ring and really rubbing in the injury were done well, while making an example of Holliday is a very smart way to go about things. It won’t really matter in the grand scheme of things since he’s a jobber, but it’s still a good statement for Storm to make. Like I said, really good little promo.

Interesting little segment here. With Bischoff welcoming Hogan back only to instantly make a call, you can’t help but feel he’s up to something. I’m not sure if you’re trying to make this too obvious, but either way I am intrigued.

Again, it seems clear that this is all one big swerve with this promo after Anderson appeared so humble here, despite being so arrogant and obnoxious about his victory before turning Fortune down earlier. While it’s a good angle to run if the swerve isn’t obvious, everything about this seems to be screaming swerve.

It seems a little random for 3D to be out now rather than during The British Invasion match considering the Brits had previously declared interest in the tag belts and that’s what TNA have too, but I guess you’re setting up for a three way number one contender match at Victory Road.

Seemingly a solid enough match between Helms and Hernandez, with both staying on the good side of the crowd by putting on an exciting contest. The handshake at the end is a nice way to show the respect between the two teams, but more interesting is the response of 3D. It should be good to see how you follow up on this next week.

A bit of an odd time to write Angle out for a bit here. While I don’t mind you resting the guy, especially for realism sake, having him take time off when your biggest angle to date is kicking off seems like a very weird route to take, considering he’s one of your biggest stars. Hopefully he doesn’t take too long off, because he could be a major player in the war against Fortune. Maybe a big return to combat them in the future will bring him back.

A bit disappointing to see the intensity of the feud between Anderson and Van Dam stagnate on this show with nothing happening, but I guess this promo from Van Dam was a good way to keep things simmering around. Having Van Dam not trust Anderson is perhaps the most interesting note, because that’s the one thing on this show that actually points away from a swerve. I still expect it to happen, but this promo at least throws something else up in the air.

Pretty nice action in the main event with the counters, although, again, buying Anderson as being such a nice guy without it leading to the swerve just seemed impossible. As expected, the swerve did come at the end of the show, although I must say the execution of the actual swerve part with Anderson drilling AJ was nicely done. I think the rest of it could have been pulled off better on Anderson’s part throughout the show, as he swapped from badass to goody two shoes far too quickly for it to seem real, but the idea was good.

Since this show was all about Fortune, I thought you could have maybe had them end the show and go with the Hogan stuff next week, but seeing Hulk being bloodied to close the show is a good cliffhanger to go out on. I have no doubt Bischoff was involved after what happened earlier, although I’m not sure how you’re going to go about revealing who else was involved and why. Pretty good way to finish the show, even if I think it could have been held off for a week.


All in all, I thought this was a solid follow up on Slammiversary. You followed up on the main angle of Fortune forming pretty well, even if Anderson’s swerve could have been written better at times throughout the show. The rest of your angles seem to be building nicely too with some solid promo-writing helping, and you obviously have the big Hogan angle to follow up on too. As I said, a solid show, although there is room for improvement. Still, it’s easily enough for me to want to visit this thread again. Good stuff, Shocker.

TNA House Show Report
Nutter Center, Dayton, Ohio
June 17, 2010


~ Amazing Red, Christopher Daniels, Jay Lethal & Kazarian def. Eric Young, Kiyoshi, Okada & Sheik Abdul Bashir at 7:38 - Daniels came out with Kazarian, Lethal and Red and said they would win the World X Cup because he is their captain and after arguing with the other three Young and Bashir came out and Young said Team International were going to win. Kiyoshi and Okada then came out and Okada said some Japanese with everyone looking confused and Kazarian suggested an Eight-Man Tag Team Match. Team TNA won after Kazarian pinned Bashir following the Flux Capacitor and after the match Kiyoshi and Okada attacked him but Young cleared them from the ring before Daniels hit Eric with the Angel’s Wings.

~ Jeremy Borash came out and said he would give out backstage passes but Team 3D came out and Brother Ray said that if he does then they will put Borash through a table which surprisingly got a lot of cheers from the crowd. The Latin American Exchange came out and Hernandez challenged 3D to a match, with the stipulation being that if LAX won then backstage passes would be given out. The challenge was accepted.

~ The Latin American Exchange def. Team 3D at 7:13 - Good match, Team 3D turned back the years with their performance and 3D performed their ‘Get the tables!’ routine but Ray then told the crowd they didn’t deserve to see someone get put through a table which got a lot of heat. LAX won after Hernandez hit Devon with the Border Toss.

~ Angelina Love def. Tara at 4:46 - The crowd weren’t as into this match as they were into the previous two, but Angelina did a decent job in getting the fans fired up. Love won after hitting the Botox Injection, but after the match Tara attacked her and got a lot of heat from the crowd.

~ Fortune came out, with Mr. Anderson so TNA are ignoring the storyline they had on Impact with Anderson initially turning them down but the whole thing turning out to be a hoax when he joined them at the end of the show. Ric Flair cut a promo about how they’re taking over TNA and they’re the Gods of the Earth which was hilarious, and AJ Styles, D’Angelo Dinero, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam then came out. Styles said they won’t take his company away and he challenged Fortune to face them in singles matches tonight, Flair accepting the challenge. Everybody left apart from RVD and Storm, who met in the ring.

~ James Storm def. Rob Van Dam at 8:05 - Solid match, Storm continuously insulted the crowd throughout the match and used a lot of heel tactics, getting heaps of heat from the fans. They were all behind Van Dam from start to finish but Storm won with a Roll-Up and had his feet on the ropes.

~ Matt Morgan def. AJ Styles at 9:07 - Morgan was definitely over as a heel with the crowd, getting a lot of ‘You suck!’ chants.

The crowd went wild for Pope seeing as he just pinned the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, TNA must have very big plans for him.

TNA Sunday Night Xplosion
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
June 20, 2010


~ Xplosion begins with the opening credits and “Trophy WiFi” by Taproot blares out as the camera cuts into the Impact Zone. We see the pyro display on the stage before the camera pans the crowd in the building tonight who are cheering, and then cuts to the announce table on the left hand side of the stage where Jeremy Borash and Taz are sat. They welcome us to the inaugural edition of Sunday Night Xplosion on Versus, talking about how you can see even more great TNA stars on the show before going through the card for tonight’s broadcast; Austin Creed taking on Sheik Abdul Bashir, Sarita squaring off against Hamada and the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns taking on Aero Star and Extreme Tiger from Team Mexico in the World X Cup. Borash adds that we will look back on the events of this past week’s monumental edition of Thursday Night Impact.

~ The opening contest of Xplosion sees Hamada facing Sarita and in a decent Knockouts match, Sarita manages to pick up the victory with a Tiger Driver at 6:23. After the match, Sarita celebrates with her tag team partner Taylor Wilde.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

~ Back on Xplosion, Jeremy Borash and Taz introduce us to highlights of Ric Flair's introduction of his new Fortune group this past Thursday on Impact and the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson coming out only to turn down Flair's offer of a spot in the group. The highlights end with AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam coming out to save Anderson from an imminent beatdown from Fortune.

~ It is then time for the second match of the night and Austin Creed, seemingly renamed as that is what Jeremy Borash and Taz refer to him as, faces Sheik Abdul Bashir. Before the match, Bashir takes the microphone and says Sheik Abdul Bashir is not his real name, but it is a stereotypical name that TNA gave him and his real name is Shawn Daivari. Shawn says he is done with the 'USA!' chants and the degradation from the crowd because of his background, and he is going to show Creed and everybody else that he should be taken seriously. Daivari manages to win the match after making Austin submit to the Camel Clutch at 7:45.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

~ After the break, we see highlights of the main event from this past Thursday on Impact where Mr. Anderson defended his newly-won TNA World Heavyweight Championship against the former Champion, 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles. We only see the conclusion of the match, with Styles winning via disqualification after interference from Fortune and the highlights end with Anderson hitting AJ with the title belt and officially joining Fortune, celebrating with them in the ring.

~ Jeremy Borash and Taz then discuss what happened at the end of the show last Thursday on Impact where Hulk Hogan was shown laid out and bloodied backstage, and say that Eric Bischoff has elected not to show any footage or photos of it, in the best interests of the audience. Borash and Taz wish Hogan a speedy recovery before informing us that the main event is next.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

~ Following the final commercial break of the night, it is time for the main event with the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns facing Aero Star and Extreme Tiger in tag team action. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin come out on top in a solid contest after hitting Tiger with the Made In Detroit at 10:18, and after the match Sabin and Shelley shake hands with Star and Tiger to close the inaugural edition of Sunday Night Xplosion on Versus.

*END SHOW*

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



The June 17 edition of Thursday Night Impact got a 1.42 rating.

TNA have signed the ROH Television Champion Eddie Edwards to a contract. Edwards will officially begin with the company once he has fulfilled his independent committments and dropped the belt. There have been rumours that the company are also interested in re-signing former X Division Champion Petey Williams, who left the company in early 2009.

It has been announced on TNAwrestling.com that all of the Impact episodes in July will be held in the former home of Extreme Championship Wrestling, The Arena, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. TNA are apparently trying to book the Hammerstein Ballroom and their former home The Asylum in Nashville for some tapings as well.

TNA Thursday Night Impact
The Impact Zone, Orlando, Florida
June 24, 2010


TNA Thursday Night Impact begins with a video package recapping the events of last week’s edition of Thursday Night Impact. It shows Ric Flair coming out and unveiling his new group Fortune and the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson rejecting a place in the stable, only to join them at the end of the night after Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan interfered in Anderson’s title defence against the former Champion AJ Styles. The video comes to an end with Anderson lifted into the air by Morgan and Storm and holding his title high as Flair watches on with a grin on his face whilst trash is thrown into the ring by the fans, and then the shot of Hulk Hogan laid out and bloodied on the floor backstage with D’Angelo Dinero, Jeff Hardy and Rob Van Dam surrounding Hogan with looks of concern on their faces.

The camera cuts to a dark corridor backstage where Eric Bischoff is stood, and Bischoff is on the phone to someone with an anxious look on his face.

Eric Bischoff: I don’t know what happened to Hulk, Dixie. Pat told me he was laid out backstage and I found him there, it was horrible. His T-shirt was ripped, he was bleeding... it’s hard just talking about it. But don’t worry, Dixie, I’m gonna find out who did this and whoever’s responsible is gonna be fired. Alright, take care, bye.

Bischoff puts his phone in his pocket and takes a deep breath, before walking away.

Then, the opening credits play and “Change Me” blares out as the camera cuts into the Impact Zone. The opening pyro goes off and the camera pans the crowd who are cheering in excitement for the show to begin, before cutting to the announce table on the left hand side of the stage where Mike Tenay and Mick Foley are sat and are ready to welcome us to this broadcast. Tenay and Foley talk about the situation involving Hulk Hogan, wishing him a speedy recovery and discussing why this could have happened. They then run through the card for tonight’s show, which consists of a Four-Way Elimination Match with Brother Ray, Homicide, Jeremy Buck and Shannon Moore, Angelina Love facing Velvet Sky with the winner challenging TNA Knockouts Champion Daffney at Victory Road, Team Mexico’s Aero Star and Extreme Tiger taking on Shawn Spears and Shawn Daivari from Team International in the World X Cup, Samoa Joe facing Kiyoshi, and one half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions Chris Sabin squaring off against Magnus.

When the commentators are done, “Four” hits to major heat from the crowd and Ric Flair walks out, accompanied by Desmond Wolfe, James Storm and Matt Morgan and also two security guards wearing black T-shirts with the Fortune logo on the front. Tenay immediately questions the absence of the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson as Flair and the members of Fortune all hold up their hand sign whilst their pyro goes off before making their way down the ramp. Ric orders SoCal Val to hold down the rope for him and his group and she does as they all enter the ring with the two guards standing on the outside. Flair calls for a microphone and receives one, standing in front of Fortune who are all wearing suits and sunglasses as well as ‘The Nature Boy’ who has a grin on his face.

Ric Flair: Before any of you open your mouths... the main man is on his way.

Obviously referring to Anderson, Flair smirks as the crowd boo.

Ric Flair: And when he gets here, he is gonna officially be inducted... (Holds up handsign) into Fortune.

More heat from the crowd.

Ric Flair: Shut up!

That doesn’t do anything to quieten the crowd.

Ric Flair: Hey! Do any of you people know who you’re lookin’ at right now?! You’re lookin’ at Fortune! The Gods of TNA, the Gods of professional wrestling - Wooooooooo! - the Gods of this Earth!

Flair removes his sunglasses and jacket and throws his jacket to the ground, running off the ropes but is stopped by Wolfe from going any further.

Ric Flair: I could find more money in my shoe than any of you could in your bank accounts combined! Do any of you have your own personal security? ‘Cause that’s what we’ve got right now! There they are outside the ring, Gunnar and Murphy, right there!

The camera cuts to Gunnar and Murphy, who keep their eyes fixed on the entranceway, before cutting back to Flair in the ring.

Ric Flair: But now, I want all of you people to get down and pucker up ‘cause you’re about to be in the presence of your TNA World Heavyweight Champion and the official Fortune member... Wooooooooo! Mr. Anderson!

“Feedback” plays to huge heat from the crowd and Mr. Anderson walks out, holding his TNA World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder and wearing sunglasses and a suit much like his Fortune compatriots. Chewing some gum, Anderson saunters down the ramp and enters the ring, taking a microphone and immediately embracing with Flair who holds his arms out to him. Anderson then shakes hands with Morgan, Storm and Wolfe before standing next to Flair.

Mr. Anderson: That’s right, baby... after I fooled each and every one of you last week, I can stand here at this moment and say loud and proud that this guy (Points to himself) is a member of Fortune!

More heat from the crowd.

Mr. Anderson: I’ve been gettin’ e-mails, tweets and what not from innocent little fans sayin’ they hate my guts and that I sold out last week, well I’m gonna tell all of ya’ two things. One... I don’t need to sell a damn thing, I’m the frickin’ TNA World Heavyweight Champion, I’m rich! And two... I was with Fortune the whole time.

Anderson laughs along with Flair, Morgan, Storm and Wolfe as the crowd continue to boo him.

Mr. Anderson: So with that being said, I know you’re all wonderin’ why I pretended to turn down Fortune and be buddies with AJ Styles. I’m gonna be honest, it wasn’t any kind of conspiracy theory with months of history and layers and layers of crap, no, I did it because... I can. ‘Cause the fact of the matter is, I’m a smart guy... and all of you are idiots.

Cheap heat, and ‘Asshole’ chants surface in the Impact Zone.

Mr. Anderson: Awww, you’re too kind. C’mon, just like always I’m tellin’ the truth, how could any of you possibly think I wasn’t gonna join these guys? You actually thought they decided to, uh, support a guy in the King of the Mountain Match at Slammiversary that wasn’t in their group? No way, José, not gonna happen today, tomorrow, or ever. And, if I may say so- oh wait, I can say so, I can do whatever the hell I want around here... the whole thing was my idea, just puttin’ it out there.

Anderson holds his high in the air, taking the ‘blame’.

Mr. Anderson: So AJ, if you’re plannin’ on sendin’ some hatemail, whether it be an e-mail, a phonecall- wait, I wouldn’t give you my number, a letter- wait, I wouldn’t tell you where I live, or a tweet- wait, you probably don’t know how to work a computer... then you send them to moi.

After Anderson says that, “Get Ready To Fly” blares out to cheers from the crowd and the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles walks out wearing a T-shirt over his ring gear and holding a microphone.

AJ Styles: Anderson, I’m gonna send you hatemail, just tellin’ ya’ that so you can sleep easy at night. And if I wanna show you how pissed off I am after your group cost me that TNA World Heavyweight Championship in our match last week, I’ll come down to that ring and kick your ass!

Big pop from the crowd.

Ric Flair: You threatenin’ us, punk? You think you can take us out? We’ve got security right here, and if you decide to bring out any of your buddies then I’ve a whole lot more security waitin’ to stop ‘em!

AJ Styles: Before ya’ get excited, no, I’m not gonna come down there.

Mixed reaction.

AJ Styles: I came out here to do two things, and two things only... to tell you, Mr. Anderson, that on July 11 at Victory Road, I’m gettin’ another shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

Huge pop, as Fortune can’t believe it and Flair’s eyes widen.

Ric Flair: Hey, AJ, aren’t ya’ forgettin’ somethin’? You had your rematch last week, kid, and ya’ blew it! It’s gone, for good!

AJ Styles: Well if so, then I don’t think Eric Bischoff heard, ‘cause he’s the guy who gave me the match!

More cheers from the crowd.

AJ Styles: You thought ya’ played me for a fool, Anderson? I never trusted you for one second, and if I wasn’t gettin’ a title match I wouldn’t have pretended to be buddies with ya’ ‘cause after I won the title back I would have seen your plan come crashin’ down on ya’, but instead I was screwed. But it doesn’t matter, ‘cause at Victory Road, Flair and the rest of Fortune are gonna be banned from ringside! And it’s for the best, ‘cause they won’t have to see their golden boy Mr. Anderson get his ass kicked and have to lose his title to AJ Styles!

‘AJ!’ chants start in the crowd.

Mr. Anderson: Keep dreamin’, kid.

AJ Styles: And I’ve also got a challenge for ya’. How about we have ourselves little tag team match tonight on Impact, huh? Me and a partner of my choosing... against you and a partner of your choosing, Anderson. How about it?

Anderson looks around the Impact Zone with a smirk on his face, before spitting his gum out, taking off his sunglasses and looking at Styles.

Mr. Anderson: You’re on.

“Get Ready To Fly” blares out and Styles and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson have a long-distance staredown, Anderson smiling whilst AJ has a determined and poised look on his face. Tenay and Foley talk about what they just heard at the announce table, speculating who AJ and Anderson will choose as their tag team partners and saying that Anderson will obviously choose a member of Fortune as his partner for the match, before going to the first commercial break of the broadcast.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back from the break, “Tattooed Attitude” blares out and Shannon Moore walks out, posing for the crowd before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and sliding under the ropes into the ring. Mike Tenay informs us that the tag team partners of the competitors are all banned from ringside for this match and “My Generation” then hits as Jeremy Buck walks out, making his way to the ring. Then, “Watch Out, Watch Out” plays and Brother Ray walks through the curtain, getting heat from the crowd as he walks to the ring. “To Live And Die In LAX” blares out to a good pop and Homicide walks out, storming down the ramp and entering the ring.

Match One
Brother Ray vs. Homicide vs. Jeremy Buck vs. Shannon Moore
Four-Way Elimination Match


As Brother Ray and Shannon Moore climb out onto the ring apron in opposite corners of the ring, the rules of this Four-Way Elimination Match become apparent. Two men in the ring at a time, and they can tag out to either man until one competitor has been eliminated, then the legal men have only one other competitor to tag into. When it is down to two, the winner will be determined. Homicide and Jeremy Buck approach the middle of the ring and lock up, Homicide quickly moving behind Jeremy and wrapping his hands around his waist, but Buck breaks out of his grasps with a back elbow which sends Homicide staggering backwards. Jeremy turns around and Homicide shakes off the damage from the elbow before running towards him but Buck takes him down to the mat with a drop toe hold. He then springs up to his feet and quickly runs off the ropes, hitting Homicide with an Elbow Drop to the back of the neck. Jeremy turns Homicide over onto his back and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Homicide kicks out without much of a sweat. Buck gets him back to his feet and hits Homicide with some forearms to the head before running off the ropes, but 'The Notorious 187' hits him with an STO!

Homicide gets back to his feet and hits Jeremy with some stomps to the back before walking towards the corner and tagging Brother Ray into the match. Ray enters the ring and gets Buck to his feet, shoving him into the corner of the ring. He unloads on Jeremy with rapid lefts and rights, followed by some repeated open-hand Chops to the chest until his chest is red and Ray then Irish whips him into the ropes. Buck comes back off of them and Ray wipes him out with a Big Boot before making a cover: One! Two! Jeremy kicks out. Ray gets back up and wastes no time in going back on the attack, getting Buck to his feet. He Irish whips him into the ropes and bends over in preparation for a Back Body Drop but Jeremy Sunset Flips over him. Buck tries to pull Ray down but he stays on his feet and tries to sit on him but Jeremy moves out of the way and he lands in a seated position on the mat. Buck quickly gets back to his feet, and nails Ray with a stiff-looking kick to the back! Ray screams out in pain and Jeremy likes it, smirking as he hits him with another kick to the back! Buck then runs off the ropes in front of his opponent, and knocks Ray down with a running kick to the skull!

Jeremy then makes the cover: One! Two! Ray kicks out! Buck momentarily looks at the referee Jamie Tucker before getting back to his feet and walking towards the corner of the ring, tagging Shannon Moore into the match for the first time. Moore jumps over the ropes and sees Ray getting back to his feet. He runs off the ropes and charges towards Ray, who tries to reverse it into a Tilt-a-Whirl Backbreaker but is unsuccessful as Moore hits him with a Tilt-a-whirl Headscissors Takedown! Ray goes down and Shannon frantically crawls across the mat, covering Ray: One! Two! No! Ray gets the shoulder up! Moore gets back to his feet and gets Ray up but the veteran begins to fight back with some blows to the mid-section. Ray then takes control and runs off the ropes, going for a Clothesline, but Moore ducks it and rolls Ray up with a Schoolboy! One! Two! Three!

Shannon Moore pins Brother Ray at 4:08; Ray is eliminated

The crowd cheer and a jubilant Moore gets back to his feet but Ray cannot believe it. Shannon turns his back to him, waiting for either Homicide or Jeremy Buck to come into the ring to face him, but a livid Ray grabs Moore and nails him with the Bubba Bomb! The crowd boo Ray, chanting 'You suck!' as the referee Jamie Tucker and other referees who come to the ring, tell him to leave which he does, albeit reluctantly. Jeremy Buck then enters the ring and quickly hooks Moore's legs, making the cover, but it takes a few moments for the referee Tucker to start the count having been involved with getting Brother Ray out of the ring: One! Two! No! Moore gets the shoulder up! Buck gets back to his feet and gets Shannon up, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. Jeremy runs towards him but a groggy Moore counters with a boot to the face, followed up by a Russian Leg Sweep! Buck and Moore lie side-by-side on the mat for a few moments until Shannon hooks Jeremy's legs and makes the cover: One! Two! No! Jeremy kicks out!

Moore slowly gets back to his feet and walks towards the corner of the ring, climbing out onto the ring apron and subsequently climbing to the top rope. Shannon eagerly waits for Jeremy to get back up and when he gets to his feet, Moore goes for a Cross Body from the top rope but Buck hits Shannon with a Dropkick to the mid-section in mid-air! Both men lie on the mat for several moments until Jeremy gets back to his feet and slowly climbs out onto the ring apron, jumping onto the ropes and springboarding off of them, nailing Moore with the 450 Splash! All Buck has to do then is hook his legs, and the cover is made: One! Two! Three! Moore is eliminated!

Jeremy Buck pins Shannon Moore at 6:28; Moore is eliminated

Shannon Moore has now been eliminated, and it is now down to two; Homicide and Jeremy Buck. Homicide enters the ring and comes face-to-face with Buck, slapping his hand against his chest and shouting 'Olele!' but Jeremy levels him with a right hand. The two of them then begin to trade right hands and Buck gains the upper hand in the exchange. He then runs off the ropes and charges towards his opponent, but Homicide nails Jeremy with a Belly-to-Belly Suplex! 'The Notorious 187' then pounces onto Buck and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! No! Jeremy gets the shoulder up! Homicide glances at the referee Jamie Tucker before getting back to his feet and getting Buck up. He moves behind Jeremy, and lifts him up in position for the Gringo Killa... but Buck flips backwards and immediately hits Homicide with a Double-Knee Backbreaker! Jeremy turns Homicide over onto his back and makes the cover, One! Two! Three-No! Homicide kicks out just before the count of three! Buck sits up and shakes his head in disappointment before getting to his feet and clapping his hands together repeatedly, getting the crowd in the Impact Zone going.

Jeremy waits for Homicide to get to his feet, and when he does Buck runs towards him but before he can do anything with the speed he has picked up Homicide slides backwards through his legs and immediately gets back to his feet. Jeremy turns around and Homicide kicks him in the mid-section, planting him on the mat with a DDT! Homicide decides to not make the cover and gets back to his feet, slapping his hands against his chest repeatedly as he eagerly waits for Buck to get back to his feet. When Jeremy is back up, Homicide lifts him up for a Scoop Slam but Buck slips off the back of his shoulders, wraps his hands around his waist, and hits Homicide with a German Suplex! An exhausted Jeremy lies next to Homicide on the mat with the crowd cheering, and some chant 'Homicide!' whereas some chant 'Let's go, Buck!' Several moments later, Buck slowly gets back to his feet and climbs out onto the ring apron. He points to the crowd, before jumping onto the ropes and springboarding off of them, going for the 45o Splash... but Homicide gets the knees up! Jeremy goes ribs-first into the knees of Homicide and immediately clutches them as he falls to the mat. Homicide is the first to get back up after that, and when he is on his feet he quickly gets Buck back up. He moves behind him and puts his head through the back of his opponent's legs, lifting Jeremy into the air, and nailing him with the Gringo Killa! Homicide then makes the cover: One! Two! Three!

Homicide def. Brother Ray, Jeremy Buck & Shannon Moore at 9:47

Homicide gets to his feet and has his hand raised in the air by the referee Jamie Tucker, to cheers from the crowd. Homicide climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring and makes the LAX hand gesture, but when he climbs down he is attacked from behind by a bitter Brother Ray! The crowd boo as Homicide falls to the mat and Ray stomps away at him relentlessly, but he is held back by Shannon Moore and Jeremy Buck who come back to the ring. Homicide gets back up and runs at Ray, but the veteran escapes from Buck and Moore’s grasps and quickly leaves the ring, walking up the ramp and wanting nothing to do with Homicide as he gets heat from the crowd.

The camera then cuts backstage, where the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns are watching the show on a TV screen in their locker room whilst holding their titles. Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin then turn to face the cameraman.

Alex Shelley: That was a pretty good match, I know I enjoyed it and it’s great to see members of tag teams giving it everything they’ve got in the ring.

Chris Sabin: It’s obvious their teams want a shot at these TNA World Tag Team Championships, you’ve got Jeremy in Generation Me, Brother Ray in Team 3D, Shannon with Shane Helms and Homicide in the Latin American Exchange and they’re all great tag teams. It goes to show that TNA has the best tag team division in professional wrestling today without a shadow of a doubt, these belts mean a lot in this company and we’re proud of it.

Alex Shelley: The British Invasion, they don’t appreciate the prestige of these titles and until they do, they won’t win them and I have a feeling that time when they do appreciate what these and tag team wrestling as a whole won’t come at Victory Road when they challenge us.

Chris Sabin: I’ve got Magnus in a match tonight, Alex has got Doug Williams next week, and I enjoyed that match too but I can tell you I’m gonna enjoy beating Magnus tonight a hell of a lot more.

We then go to another commercial break.

---

Back on Impact, the camera is in Fortune’s locker room. Ric Flair, Desmond Wolfe, James Storm, Matt Morgan and Mr. Anderson are all sat down on two leather sofas opposite each other, looking relaxed.

Ric Flair: Isn’t this the life, huh?

Flair laughs, as do the other four.

Ric Flair: But hey, it’s decision time now; who’s teaming with Ken tonight?

Mr. Anderson: Y’know what? I’m feelin’ good, I’ll let you choose, Ric.

Ric nods his head whilst smirking.

Ric Flair: Alright, brother. Matt, you know we’ve got plans for you tonight, Desmond we’ve got some talkin’ to do about RVD, so James, it’s your lucky night, you’re teamin’ with Ken.

James Storm: I’m cool with that.

Storm leans back and takes a drink of beer, as the camera cuts away. In the Impact Zone, “Angel On My Shoulder” plays and Velvet Sky walks out on her own, posing for the crowd before walking down the ramp and entering the ring. Then, the camera cuts backstage just behind the curtain where Angelina Love is standing.

Angelina Love: This is a #1 Contender’s Match, the winner faces Daffney for the TNA Knockouts Championship at Victory Road and I just heard that Tara has been suspended indefinitely, so that bitch can’t get in the way of me becoming Champion again. When, or if, she comes back then I’m coming straight for her after what she did to me last week, but right now, I’m coming for my old friend, Velvet.

Angelina then walks through the curtain as “Girlfriend” blares out and Love walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before stepping into the ring.

Match Two
Angelina Love vs. Velvet Sky
#1 Contender’s Match


The bell rings and Angelina Love and Velvet Sky immediately charge towards each other, Love winning the collision as she floors Sky with a double-leg takedown. Love climbs on top of Velvet and pummels her with blows to the face, before grabbing her by her hair and repeatedly slamming her head into the mat. The referee Slick Johnson separates the two and Angelina gets up, as does Velvet. Love looks to go right back on the attack, running towards her opponent, but Velvet stops her in her tracks with a kick to the mid-section and she then gets her in a front facelock, hitting Angelina with a Suplex. Sky subsequently makes an optimistic cover, One! Two! Love gets the shoulder up on two. Velvet gets back to her feet and gets Angelina up, Irish whipping her into the corner of the ring. Sky then charges towards her, going for a Spear, but Love moves out of the way and Velvet goes shoulder-first into the steel ring-post, going past the turnbuckles! As Sky reverses out of the corner holding her shoulder in pain, Love picks Velvet up and plants her on the mat with a Back Suplex, followed by a cover: One! Two! Sky gets the shoulder up.

This Knockouts contest comes to an end with Velvet Sky now in control of the match. She pulls Angelina Love up to her feet by her hair, Love screaming in pain, and Velvet places Angelina's head in between her legs. However, before she can do anything, Love counters it with a Back Body Drop which sends Sky down to the mat. Velvet gets back up and runs at Angelina, but is taken down by an Arm Drag. Love gets back up and when Sky does, Angelina runs off the ropes and takes Velvet out with a Flying Clothesline! Love gets back to her feet and walks into the corner of the ring, eagerly waiting for Sky to get back up. When Velvet gets back to her feet, Love runs out from the corner of the ring and lays Sky out with the Botox Injection! Angelina quickly makes the cover afterwards: One! Two! Three!

Angelina Love def. Velvet Sky at 4:40

Love gets back up and has her hand raised by the referee Slick Johnson, then holding both hands high before climbing to the second rope in the corner of the ring and motioning around her waist that she will become the TNA Knockouts Champion at Victory Road. Angelina then leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, high-fiving several fans on her way back to the locker room. Tenay and Foley talk about Love becoming #1 contender, but they inform us of some news coming in; at Victory Road, it will be Generation Me vs. The Latin American Exchange vs. Shane Helms & Shannon Moore vs. Team 3D in a #1 Contender’s Four-Way Elimination Match.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back from the break, Jeremy Borash is standing backstage with the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero.

Jeremy Borash: Ladies and gentlemen, this is ‘JB’ Jeremy Borash here standing with the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero who has been on quite a roll lately, defeating 'The Icon' Sting in Sting's retirement match less than two weeks ago at Slammiversary in Anaheim. How are you feeling in TNA at the moment, Pope?

D’Angelo Dinero:Jerry, Pope is on top of the world right now! He defeated a legend of this business, the Stinger himself, at Slammiversary, and on top of that Pope is still the TNA Global Champion. If anybody wants to have a shot at this title, then get in line, daddy, 'cause everybody's gunnin' for Pope, and that's how he likes it. Pope has-

Dinero abruptly stops when he is attacked from behind by ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan! Accompanied by Ric Flair, Morgan knocks Dinero to the ground and viciously stomps away at him, then going to ground and pummeling ‘The Pope’ with blows to the head. Morgan gets Dinero to his feet and lifts him up over his shoulder, driving the TNA Global Champion spine-first into the wall! Flair applauds as Dinero falls in a heap to the floor and Morgan picks up the title belt, looking at it with a grin on his face as Borash looks on in concern.

Matt Morgan: Nothing personal, Pope... but what Fortune want... Fortune get.

Morgan drops the title on Dinero before walking away with a smirking Flair as the camera cuts back into the Impact Zone.

“El Mejor” blares out and Aero Star and Extreme Tiger walk out both wearing shirts with the Mexico flag on them, getting little reaction from the crowd. The two luchadores walk down the ramp and enter the ring and then “Across The World” hits as Shawn Spears and Shawn Daivari make their way out, Daivari’s emergence getting heat from the crowd. Daivari raises his hands in the air before he and the Canadian competitor Spears make their way down the ramp representing Team International, stepping into the ring and standing opposite their opponents in the corner.

Match Three
Team International (Shawn Spears & Shawn Daivari) vs. Team Mexico (Aero Star & Extreme Tiger)
World X Cup Tag Team Match


The bell rings and Extreme Tiger and Shawn Spears leave the ring, as it becomes apparent that Aero Star and Shawn Spears will start off the match. The two competitors approach the middle of the ring and prepare to lock up, but Spears instead starts off the contest with a kick to the mid-section. He then hits Star with a clubbing blow to the back which knocks him down to the canvas and proceeds to unload on the luchadore with repeated stomps to the back. The referee Andrew Thomas breaks it up and forces Shawn to back away, which he does, albeit reluctantly. Star gets back to his feet and Spears immediately runs towards him, but he is leapfrogged, and when Shawn turns around Aero jumps up and connects with a Hurricanrana which sends Spears through the ropes and out of the ring down to the floor! Shawn takes his time in getting back to his feet and Aero Star looks around the crowd in the Impact Zone who are cheering, before running off the ropes and sprinting across the ring, but Shawn Daivari who is in the corner near Spears moves across the ring apron and leans through the ropes, kneeing Star in the mid-section! The crowd boo Daivari heavily and the referee Andrew Thomas reprimands him whilst Spears enters the ring and capitalizes on the situation, lifting Star up into the air and slamming him down on the mat with a Scoop Slam.

Spears then hooks Star's legs and makes the first cover attempt of the match: One! Two! Kick-out on two from Aero Star. Shawn gets back to his feet and gets Star to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring and immediately running towards him to drive his knee into Star's mid-section. Spears then strikes him with the knee several times until stopping as Star sinks to his knees in the corner. Shawn gets him to his feet and brings him towards the opposite corner of the ring, holding out his hand and tagging Shawn Daivari into the match. Bashir enters the ring and Spears holds Star in place as Daivari hits the Mexican competitor with a kick to the gut. Shawn lets go of him and leaves the ring as Abdul takes over, taking Star down to the mat with a Snapmare as he lands in a seated position. Shawn pulls back at Star's arms whilst driving his knee into his back, applying as much pressure as possible as Star writhes in pain. He slams his foot against the mat repeatedly, getting the crowd going, and Star feeds off the crowd's energy, fighting his way to his feet and with Daivari holding his arms, Star gets out of the predicament by flipping forward and hitting Daivari with a Headscissors Takedown!

This World X Cup Tag Team Match comes to an end with Extreme Tiger and Shawn Spears as the legal competitors in the match. Spears has Tiger in a sleeper hold and Tiger is desperately trying to get out of it. He claps his hands together repeatedly, getting the crowd in the Impact Zone going, and Tiger fights his way to his feet, hitting Spears with some elbows to the mid-section. He strikes him with elbows over and over again until Shawn finally lets go, and when he tries to regain control by going for a Clothesline, Tiger ducks out of the way of it and nails Spears with a Frankensteiner! 'Gato Suicida' then runs towards the corner and takes Sheik Abdul Bashir off the ring apron with a Dropkick, before getting back up and tagging in Aero Star, who climbs to the top rope and hits Spears with the Shooting Star Press! Star hooks the legs, and the cover is made: One! Two! Three!

Aero Star & Extreme Tiger def. Shawn Spears & Shawn Daivari at 6:54

Tiger gets back up and has his hand raised in the air by the referee Andrew Thomas along with Aero Star. The two competitors celebrate and raise each other’s hands before leaving the ring together as Daivari stands over Spear with a look of disappointment on his face after they lost their opening match of the World X Cup to Team Mexico, despite putting in a good effort.

Backstage, Samoa Joe is walking down a dark corridor, the white towel over his shoulders standing out in the darkness. Mike Tenay informs that Joe is in action next, before going to a commercial break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back from the break, the camera is following Eric Bischoff who is walking through the backstage area.

Cameraman: Mr. Bischoff! Where are you going?

Bischoff stops and turns around, looking at the camera.

Eric Bischoff: Where am I going? I’m going to find out who attacked my good friend Hulk Hogan last week, do you have a problem with that?

Cameraman: No, sir.

Eric Bischoff: Good, keep it that way. I’m not in a good mood tonight.

Eric then turns back again and walks onwards as the camera cuts away.

Back in the Impact Zone, Suicide is already in the ring as “Coming Alive” blares out. Then, “Nation Of Violence” hits to cheers from the crowd and Samoa Joe walks out, making a slit-throat gesture and raising his hand in the air as his pyro goes off. Joe then walks down the ramp and steps into the ring, posing for the crowd again before throwing his towel out of the ring and standing opposite his imminent opponent, or victim, Suicide.

Match Four
Samoa Joe vs. Suicide
Singles Match


The bell rings and Samoa Joe and Suicide approach the middle of the ring, having a stare-down. Suicide goes for a kick to the mid-section of his opponent, but Joe NO-SELLS it! Suicide then runs off the ropes behind Joe and charges towards him, but Joe floors the masked competitor with a STJoe! The crowd cheer as Joe then runs off the ropes, and hits Suicide with a Running Senton! 'The Samoan Submission Machine' gets back to his feet and gets Suicide back up, pushing him into the corner of the ring and then unloading on him with blows to the face. He then turns his back to him, before spinning around and nailing Suicide with the CCS Enzuigiri! Suicide falls down to the mat flat on his face but Joe doesn't waste any time, getting him right back up, and throwing Suicide across the ring with an Exploder Suplex! He gets Suicide back up again and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, then running towards him and hitting Suicide with a Running Forearm Smash! Joe lifts him up to the top rope and then gets him in position, before nailing Suicide with the Muscle Buster! Joe makes the cover: One! Two! Three! It's over!

Samoa Joe def. Suicide at 1:39

Joe gets back to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Mike Posey, before pulling away and calling for a microphone. Joe takes one from SoCal Val and then walks into the middle of the ring.

Samoa Joe: Mr. Anderson... Fortune... I said it last week, and I’ll say it again. You f***ed with the wrong guy at Slammiversary, boys, and very soon... I'm gonna take you out, one... by... one.

Joe drops the microphone and leaves the ring as “Nation Of Violence” plays and Tenay and Foley speculate at the announce table how Samoa Joe plans to cause Fortune’s downfall.

Backstage, AJ Styles is walking around when he stops outside a locker room and opens the door, walking in and seeing Jeff Hardy in there.

AJ Styles: Hey Jeff, I need a favour.

Jeff Hardy: What do you need, man?

AJ Styles: You probably know that I need a tag team partner against Mr. Anderson and whoever his partner is tonight, and it’d be great if you could be my partner for that match.

AJ extends his hand to Jeff.

Jeff Hardy: Sure man, it’s a deal. I got screwed by Anderson and those other bitches at Slammiversary too, I can't wait.

Hardy accepts the handshakes and both men exchange smiles.

AJ Styles: Good. I gotta’ get ready now, but I’ll see you out there.

AJ pats Jeff on the back before walking away as we go to a break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Impact, the camera is backstage and Ric Flair is walking around alone with a smirk on his face, when he is confronted by Eric Bischoff.

Ric Flair: What can I do for you, Eric?

Eric Bischoff: Well first of all you can wipe that smile off your face, Ric.

Flair merely shrugs his shoulders.

Eric Bischoff: Do you wanna know what I thought when I saw my good friend Hulk Hogan lying on the floor in a pool of his own blood last week? I thought of you, Ric. Sounds like a perfect fit, doesn’t it? Ric Flair, the dirtiest player in the game, just formed a new group... taking out Hogan. You’ve made it too obvious Ric, I know you, you’re a power-hungry S.O.B and you obviously thought that taking out Hulk would give you that power.

Ric Flair: Are you accusing me of being responsible for what happened to Hogan last week?

Eric Bischoff: That’s exactly what I’m accusing you of, Ric.

Ric Flair: Come on, Eric, you know that isn’t true. You think I’m power-hungry? Hey, Fortune’s got the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, brother, that’s all the power I need. So how about you get your facts straight before accusing me of somethin’, huh?

Ric walks away and Bischoff stands in silence until the camera cuts away.

Elsewhere, The British Invasion are stood side-by-side in a corridor backstage.

Magnus: Looks like the Mag Daddy and Sir Douglas are the #1 contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championships, eh? It looks like there’s gonna be another match at Victory Road to determine who challenges for the titles after the pay per view well to everybody in that match, I hope you’re watching right now, because you’re looking at the two handsome devils who you’re fighting to compete against.

Douglas Williams: And tonight, Magnus here is facing one half of the team we will be facing at Victory Road, Chris Sabin. There’s a saying that goes something like ‘it’s not about who wins the battles, it’s about who wins the war’, well we’re winning the war and the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Victory Road.

Magnus: And I’m going to win the battle against Chris Sabin tonight, which is just a bonus.

Magnus winks at the camera and Williams poses before it cuts away to the announce table. Tenay and Foley go through the current card for Victory Road on July 11 which has five matches announced currently; Daffney defending the TNA Knockouts Championship against Angelina Love, the World X Cup Gauntlet Match involving every member of all four teams, Generation Me versus The Latin American Exchange versus Shane Helms & Shannon Moore versus Team 3D in a #1 Contender’s Four-Way Elimination Match, The Motor City Machine Guns defending the TNA World Tag Team Championships against The British Invasion and Mr. Anderson putting the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on the line against AJ Styles with Fortune banned from ringside. Tenay informs us that Chris Sabin faces Magnus next on Impact, before going to another commercial break.

*COMMERCIAL BREAK*

Back on Thursday Night Impact, “Invasion” hits and Magnus walks out alongside his tag team partner Douglas Williams. Both make their signature pose before walking down the ramp side-by-side, ignoring the heat they get from the crowd as Magnus enters the ring and Williams stays on the outside. Then, “Motorcity” blares out to a big pop and Chris Sabin walks out with Alex Shelley, the two of them standing back-to-back and posing before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving several fans. Sabin enters the ring and climbs to the second rope in the corner, posing for the crowd before climbing down and removing his leather jacket and his TNA World Tag Team Championship belt which he takes off and Magnus looks at with a smirk on his face.

Match Five
Chris Sabin vs. Magnus
Singles Match


The bell rings and Chris Sabin and Magnus charge towards each other, immediately beginning to trade right hands. The exchange continues until Magnus slows down the pace with a knee to the gut of Sabin and he then runs off the ropes, going for a Knee Lift but Chris moves out of the way of it and when Magnus turns around to face him, Sabin takes the Englishman down to the mat with a Dropkick! The TNA World Tag Team Champion quickly crawls across the mat and hooks Magnus' legs, making the first cover of the match: One! Magnus kicks out, without much of a sweat. Sabin gets back to his feet and gets Magnus up, hitting him with repeated right hands until he is in the corner. Chris then stomps away at his mid-section until Magnus is in a seated position and he then backs away, taking a big run up and going for a kick but Magnus catches his boot. He pushes Sabin away, landing on his back and Magnus then comes out of the corner, going for an Elbow Drop but Chris rolls out of the way of it as Magnus' elbow lands on the mat without hitting its target. Sabin then jumps onto Magnus and gets him in a headlock, but it doesn't take long for him to get back to his feet and escape from the hold, courtesy of some blows to Chris' mid-section. Magnus then runs off the ropes and Sabin takes him back down to the mat with an Arm Drag.

Magnus gets back to his feet and charges at his opponent once again, but Sabin floors him once again with another Arm Drag. Magnus lands in a seated position on the mat and Chris gets back to his feet, running off the ropes and hitting Magnus with a stiff Running Kick to the sternum! Sabin then makes the cover: One! Two! Kick-out on two from Magnus. Chris gets back to his feet and gets Magnus up, getting him in a front facelock and walking backwards towards the corner of the ring. Sabin climbs to the middle rope and goes for a Tornado DDT, but Magnus keeps him up in the air and drops him on his feet on the ring apron. Chris then leans through the ropes, going for a Shoulder Thrust, but Magnus moves out of the way of it and then hits Sabin with a Knee Lift to the skull! Chris almost falls off the ring apron but manages to hold onto the ropes, but not for long as Magnus runs off the ropes and sprints across the ring, sending Sabin off the ring apron and down to the concrete floor with a Running Shoulder Tackle! With Chris down on the floor, Magnus leaves the ring and gets Sabin on his feet, lifting him up and driving Sabin spine-first into the ring apron! Chris falls to the floor again whilst writhing in pain and Magnus hits him with some stomps before re-entering the ring.

Magnus' tag team partner Douglas Williams watches on from nearby with a smug smirk on his face whilst Sabin's partner Alex Shelley rallies his fellow TNA World Tag Team Champion on from the other side of the ring. The referee Earl Hebner begins the count from in the ring, keeping his eye on Williams: One! Two! Three! Four! Five! Sabin struggles to his feet. Six! Seven! Eight! Sabin gets back in the ring. The crowd cheer but Magnus is unhappy and he goes right back on the attack, viciously stomping away at his opponent and then climbing on top of him to pummel Chris with some blows to the head until the referee Hebner breaks it up. Magnus reluctantly gets off but is still unhappy, confronting Hebner and saying 'You can't tell me what to do, old man!' before walking past him and getting Sabin back to his feet. Magnus gets him in the corner and lifts Chris to the top rope, then climbing up there himself and getting him in a front facelock, in position for a Superplex... but Sabin fights out of it and pushes Magnus off the top rope and down to the canvas! Sabin looks around the crowd in the Impact Zone, before flying from the top rope and nailing Magnus with a Flying Elbow Drop!

Sabin then slowly hooks Magnus' legs and makes the cover, One! Two! No! Magnus gets the shoulder up on two and a half! Chris sits up with a look of disappointment on his face before slowly getting back to his feet and walking towards the corner of the ring. Sabin climbs to the top rope and eagerly waits for his opponent to get back up, and when Magnus gets back up Sabin flies from the top rope, going for a Cross Body, but Magnus catches Sabin and rolls backwards, Sabin landing on his shoulders on the mat, and hooks Chris' legs, making the cover: One! Two! No! Sabin kicks out! Magnus almost won the match out of no where but not quite, and moments later the two competitors get back to their feet. Magnus runs at Sabin, going for a Clothesline, but Chris ducks it and when Magnus turns around Sabin lifts him onto the back of his shoulders, in position for the Cradle Shock! However, Magnus frantically fights out of it and slips off of the back of Sabin's shoulders, immediately taking Chris down to the mat with a Chop Block. Magnus then turns Sabin over onto his back and takes his legs, turning him back over and locking Sabin in a Boston Crab! Magnus leans back as far as possible, trying to apply maximum pressure to the legs of Sabin, who is writhing in pain and trying to stop himself from tapping out. The crowd in the Impact Zone chant 'Let's go, Sabin!' and Alex Shelley cheers him on from ringside, and Sabin manages to use the positive energy to edge his way across the ring and make it to the ropes!

Sabin holds onto the bottom rope for dear life, relieved that he escaped, but Magnus refuses to let go, keeping the Boston Crab submission hold locked in until just before the referee Earl Hebner's count of five. Magnus then lets go and Hebner gives him a talking to but the Englishman merely laughs at him and then gets Sabin back to his feet. He Irish whips Chris into the corner of the ring and then runs towards him, but Sabin hits Magnus with a boot to the face which sends him groggily staggering backwards. Sabin climbs to the top rope and waits for Magnus to come towards him, and when he does and runs towards the corner, Sabin flies from the top rope and connects with a Flying Tornado DDT on Magnus! The Brit lands directly on his head and the two competitors lie next to each other on the mat as the crowd cheer and continue to get behind Sabin. Alex Shelley repeatedly slams his hand against the mat, getting the crowd going, and Sabin slowly hooks Magnus' legs, making the cover: One! Two! Three-No! Magnus gets the shoulder up a split second before the count of three! Sabin so very almost won the match there, and gets back to his feet after several moments.

The conclusion of this match comes a minute later, with Chris Sabin still in control. He gets a groggy Magnus to his feet and lifts him onto the back of his shoulders for the Cradle Shock, but Douglas Williams climbs onto the ring apron and tries to swing a punch at Sabin, missing, but Chris is still distracted by it nonetheless. He drops Magnus and approaches Williams, grabbing him by his shirt as the referee Earl Hebner gets in between them, but with Hebner not seeing Magnus hits Sabin with a low blow! He then rolls Sabin up with a Schoolboy, as Hebner turns his attention back to the mat and covers: One! Two! Three! Magnus steals the victory!

Magnus def. Chris Sabin at 10:35

Magnus lets go of Sabin and quickly rolls out of the ring, collecting Douglas Williams who holds his face in pain and raising his hand in the air in victory as they get heat from the crowd. Alex Shelley enters the ring and helps Sabin, who is clutching his mid-section, to his feet, watching The British Invasion leave in anger. Tenay says that despite the questionable way in which he won the match, that victory by Magnus gives him and Williams some big momentum going into their title match against The Motor City Machine Guns at Victory Road on July 11.

The camera cuts backstage where a car, a black Porsche to be exact, has pulled up in the parking lot. The front door opens, and out steps Robert Roode! Wearing a white tank top and black tracksuit pants, a scowling Roode shuts the car door and walks forward with the crowd cheering and Tenay adding that this is the first time we have seen Roode since Slammiversary when James Storm turned on him by smashing a beer bottle over his head.

Speaking of Storm, the camera cuts elsewhere where he and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson are walking down a corridor on their way to the ring. The camera cuts away again and we see AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy walking together, Tenay saying the tag team main event is next before we go to the final commercial break of the night.

Back from the break, “Modest” plays to a big pop from the crowd and the lights go out in the Impact Zone as green lasers shoot off from the stage. Jeff Hardy walks out and perform some theatrics on the stage before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. Hardy climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses for the crowd before climbing back down. “Get Ready To Fly” hits to more cheers and pyro rain falls from the ceiling down onto the stage. When it stops, we see AJ Styles standing there with his back turned and he quickly spins around, flicking his hood back and posing for the crowd. Styles then walks down the ramp and steps into the ring, running off the ropes and posing for the fans again. Then, “Four” blares out to major heat from the crowd and James Storm and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson walk out, both holding up their hand signal as their pyro goes off. The duo walk down the ramp, Storm wearing a cowboy hat, shades and a black jacket and Anderson wearing a ‘Pro wrestling is real, people are fake’ T-shirt over his ring gear as well as his title around his waist, and enter the ring, standing in the corner opposite Hardy and Styles.

Match Six
AJ Styles & Jeff Hardy vs. James Storm & Mr. Anderson
Tag Team Match


AJ Styles and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson, opponents on July 11 at Victory Road, both climb out onto the ring apron and James Storm and Jeff Hardy approach the middle of the ring to begin this main event tag team contest. Hardy and Storm lock up and they both try to force each other into the corner of the ring, both failing, but the lock-up is broken when James gets out of it, and slaps Hardy across the face! Storm laughs directly into Jeff's face but that proves to be a big mistake as Hardy charges towards him and floors 'The Tennesee Cowboy' on the mat with a double-leg takedown! The crowd cheer as Jeff climbs onto Storm and hits him with blows to the face, until the referee Dave Hebner gets in between them, getting boos from the crowd who want to see Hardy continue to pummel his opponent. Jeff gets to his feet and Storm crawls into the corner, standing in front of Mr. Anderson who tags himself into the match by slapping James' shoulder. Anderson stays in the corner, having a staredown with Jeff, before suddenly running towards him but Hardy is ready for it and ducks an attempted Clothesline, turning Ken around and beginning to unload on him with right hands! Anderson staggers backwards into the corner of the ring, trying to save himself from Jeff's onslaught, but 'The Charismatic Enigma' follows him and hits Ken with stomps to the mid-section until the loudmouth is in a seated position in the corner.

Hardy takes a few steps back before running up and handstanding on the top rope, then hitting Anderson with the Hardyac Arrest Dropkick! Jeff rolls backwards on the mat and drags Ken by his legs into the middle of the ring, hooking the legs and making the first cover attempt of this match: One! Two! Kick-out on two from Anderson. Hardy gets back up and gets Anderson to his feet, Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring where Jeff's tag team partner AJ Styles is stood, and subsequently tagging Styles into the match for the first time. AJ enters the ring and Irish whips Anderson into the ropes, then lifting him up in a Sidewalk Slam position for Hardy to jump over the ropes and hit the TNA World Heavyweight Champion with a Slingshot Leg Drop across the throat! Jeff then leaves the ring and Styles quickly makes the cover: One! Two! Anderson kicks out. AJ gets back to his feet and hits him with a European Uppercut which sends the loudmouth competitor staggering backwards into the corner of the ring. Styles approaches Anderson and holds his hand up, before hitting Anderson with a knife-edge Chop to the chest! The crowd 'Wooooo!' as Ken clutches his chest in pain and Styles climbs to the second rope on top of his opponent.

AJ hits Anderson with ten consecutive blows to the head, the crowd in the Impact Zone counting along, before Styles goes for a Frankensteiner but Ken pushes AJ down to the mat. Styles flips backwards and lands on his feet on the mat, but as soon as he does Anderson hits him with a boot to the face, sending AJ away. Anderson then climbs down from the top rope and kicks Styles in the mid-section, getting him in a front facelock and planting 'The Phenomenal One' on the canvas with a Suplex. Ken gets back to his feet afterwards, and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion walks towards the corner of the ring, tagging James Storm back into the match. Storm enters the ring and immediately climbs on top of AJ, pummeling him with blows to the head and not letting him go anywhere until the referee Dave Hebner steps in and tells James to get off him. Storm reluctantly does, getting to his feet and slowly backing away, but as soon as Styles gets back to his feet 'The Tennessee Cowboy' grabs him, and plants AJ on the back of his head on the mat with a Russian Leg Sweep! James quickly turns Styles over onto his back and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! No! Kick-out by AJ on two and a half! Storm sits up and looks at the referee Hebner, getting back to his feet and shouting in the referee's face 'That was three! Do your damn job, moron!'

James then gets Styles back up and Irish whips him into the ropes. Storm ducks down in preparation to attempt a Back Body Drop, but AJ runs towards him and hits him with a kick to the face! A groggy Storm stands upright and Styles then runs off the ropes, taking James down to the mat with a Clothesline! AJ runs around the ring, getting fired up, before climbing out onto the ring apron and eagerly waiting for Storm to get back up. When 'The Tennessee Cowboy' gets back to his feet Styles jumps onto the ropes and springboards off, hitting Storm with a Flying Forearm Smash! Both competitors land on the mat and AJ hooks James' legs, making the cover: One! Two! No! Storm gets the shoulder up! Styles lets go of James' legs and his aim now is to tag in Jeff Hardy, who is desperate to get back into the match. Hardy claps his hands together repeatedly, getting the Orlando crowd going, and AJ ever-so slowly begins to make his way across the canvas towards the corner of the ring where Jeff has his hand held out ready to be tagged in. However, before Styles can make it to the corner, Storm grabs AJ by his legs and drags him back into the middle of the ring! The crowd boo, wanting Hardy to be tagged in, but Styles manages to make it to his feet and hit James with an Enzuigiri to the temple!

Storm falls to the mat in a heap and AJ begins his journey towards the corner of the ring. James manages to land close enough to his corner that Mr. Anderson is able to tag himself in, but Styles manages to this time succesfully tag Jeff Hardy back into the match! The crowd go wild as Hardy enters the ring and he and Anderson run directly at each other, Jeff coming out on top with a Running Clothesline! Storm is standing outside the ring, but not for long as Hardy runs across the ring and hits James with a Baseball Slide! Storm falls to the concrete floor as 'The Charismatic Enigma' gets back to his feet, and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, also back up, runs towards him looking to gain the upper hand, but Hardy kicks him in the mid-section, gets him in a front facelock, lifts him into the air and nails Anderson with an Inverted Sitout Suplex Slam! Jeff then turns Ken over onto his back and makes the cover, the crowd counting along with the referee Dave Hebner: One! Two! Three-No! Anderson gets the shoulder up in the nick of time! Hardy sits up with a look of disappointment on his face, but then gets back to his feet and waits for his opponent to get up. When Ken gets back up, Jeff kicks him in the gut and gets him in position for the Twist Of Fate, but Anderson pushes him away. However, Hardy then resorts to a different plan, running up the turnbuckles to the top rope, and hitting Anderson with the Whisper in the Wind!

Jeff lands next to the TNA World Heavyweight Champion on the mat, and Hardy hooks Anderson's legs, making the cover which could possibly win him and AJ Styles the match: One! Two! Three-No! Once again, Anderson gets the shoulder up a split-second before the count of three! The crowd groan in unison once again, and Hardy glances at the referee before getting back to his feet, looking to put the loudmouth competitor known as Mr. Anderson away. Jeff approaches the corner of the ring and climbs to the top rope, posing for the crowd who cheer as they know what is coming next. However, before Hardy can go for the Swanton Bomb, Anderson feigns an injury to distract the referee Dave Hebner, grabbing his leg to get his attention, and as he does that James Storm runs across the ring apron and pushes Jeff off the top rope and down to the mat! The crowd heavily boo Storm, chanting 'You suck!' repeatedly and an angry AJ Styles jumps off the ring apron, running around the ring going for Storm but Storm alerts the referee and Hebner catches AJ just in time, telling him to go back to his corner which he reluctantly does. Meanwhile, Anderson slowly crawls across the mat towards the corner, looking for the tag to Storm, but before James can make it something gets his attention... it's Robert Roode! Robert Roode is here!

The crowd go wild as Roode walks out onto the stage, wearing a white tank top and black tracksuit pants, his hands taped and his hair dripping with water. Storm sees him and his eyes light up, before he jumps off the ring apron and runs up the ramp, brawling with Roode further up the ramp and to the backstage area! In the ring, Anderson watches his tag team partner leave having come so close to tagging him into the match, and when he pulls himself to his feet with assistance from the ropes and turns around, AJ Styles is there having been tagged back in by Hardy! Styles says to Anderson 'Show's over for you', before kicking him in the mid-section, placing his head in betwen his legs, lifting him up and nailing Anderson with the Styles Clash! The Impact Zone explodes with cheers, the match definitely done now, but AJ gets to his feet. He says to the crowd 'I'm not done yet' before climbing out onto the ring apron, jumping onto the ropes, and hitting Anderson with a Springboard 450 Splash! AJ lands on top of the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! Three! It's over, Styles and Hardy come out on top!

AJ Styles & Jeff Hardy def. James Storm & Mr. Anderson at 11:36

Styles gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Dave Hebner as Jeff Hardy enters the ring and has his hand raised too. Hardy and Styles embrace and raise each other's hands high as Mr. Anderson slowly rolls under the ropes out of the ring, but then fellow Fortune members Desmond Wolfe and Matt Morgan come out and run down the ramp into the ring, attacking Hardy and Styles! The crowd heavily boo Morgan and Wolfe who floor the exhausted AJ and Jeff and both pummel them with vicious stomps, looking for retribution on behalf of James Storm and Mr. Anderson, but then D'Angelo Dinero and Rob Van Dam emerge through the curtain and run to the ring! Both men simultaneously slide under the ropes and Dinero goes for Morgan as Van Dam targets his arch-rival Wolfe, quickly throwing Desmond over the top rope and out of the ring! RVD then helps Dinero in fighting Morgan and they manage to hit him with blows until he is leaning against the ropes, and the duo then send 'The Blueprint' out of the ring and down to the concrete floor too with a Double Clothesline over the top rope!

Morgan and Wolfe quickly retreat, helping Mr. Anderson to the back, and Ric Flair walks out with a look of concern on his face, taking the TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt from SoCal Val and handing it to a disorientated Anderson. Meanwhile, in the ring Hardy and Styles are helped to their feet, and the quartet stand triumphantly in a line in the ring, all raising each other's hands in the air to close this edition of TNA Thursday Night Impact...

Impact Feedback


Good way to start with the recap of the major happenings of last week, which were obviously very important, with two huge angles really kicking into gear.

The Hogan angle is interesting because the obvious culprit is Eric Bischoff and someone who he has ordered to attack Hogan. Having him investigate and possibly firing someone certainly does add an interesting little bit of intrigue to the angle though.

Nothing extraordinary on the card there, but a solid looking batch of matches nonetheless.

Starting off the show inside the actual Impact Zone with a promo again from Fortune is a good way to go, as you should be doing things like this to really establish them as the main force on your show. The talking up of Anderson as the man immediately was good, while the talking up of Fortune as Gods and Flair’s riches was done well. Not so sure about bringing Gunner and Murphy in as it’s something I really don’t like about TNA, so hopefully these guys won’t be interfering in matches or competing, because it just seems stupid and like a waste of time that could be given to actual talent imo. The introduction of Anderson was fine, and it was good to see him adhering to the dress code this week as an official member of Fortune, dressed to really look the part that he is playing at the forefront of Fortune. Anderson was good from the beginning, especially with the line that he didn’t need to sell out because he was already rich as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. A clever little line that fits in with the Flair/Fortune attitude well. Anderson saying he played AJ because he can was alright, although I would have liked to have seen him play up that he did it because he and Fortune now run the show a little more. A little surprised you had Anderson credited with the idea too, because it seems like something you’d put down to Flair, although I guess it’s another way for you to put over Anderson. The “wait” lines at the end I thought were a little lame, although apart from that I thought this was a solid opening until the interruption from AJ. AJ’s opening line didn’t really make a whole lot of sense no matter how many times I read through it, although the gist of it being that he wants to bring the fight is good to see. Him then saying he’s not going to come down to the ring without any explanation, no matter how obvious it may be due to the numbers disadvantage, still seems a little odd. The rematch between Anderson and AJ at Victory Road sounds good, and the stipulation attached to it with Fortune being banned from ringside obviously makes sense. Nice tag match for tonight, setting up for a good match to close tonight’s show too. A pretty good start to proceedings with this promo.

Some nice action in this opening match to kick the wrestling aspect of the show off and preview the impending four way number one contender match at Victory Road (not quite sure if it’s announced yet, but it certainly will be). The early elimination of Brother Ray drawing the dickish heel reaction out of him was done well, while Moore had to be the next one to go after suffering the most thanks to the Bubba Bomb earlier in the match, although I was glad to see some action between Buck and Moore in there before he went. The action between the final two was good again, with ‘Cide getting the win making sense since he’s probably the most accomplished singles competitor of the four. I wasn’t so sure about what happened after the match, as it seemed unnecessary, but regardless of that this was still a pretty good first match.

First of all, the grey colour is very hard to read when not bolded. With that said, okay promo from The Guns. A bit strange to see no joking from them, but the serious promo built everything up fine. It’s basic but it works fine.

Victory Road looks to be shaping up as a pretty good looking show.

A bit surprised you’re revealing the partners before the main event, but I’ve got no problem with it. I’m glad to see Storm involved in a big match because he really deserves it irl, while you’ve now got me interested in what we should expect from Wolfe with RVD and Morgan with Dinero.

This seemed almost like a pointless promo from Angelina considering you could have just had the commentators explain that Tara was suspended. I find Tara getting suspended for attacking Angelina backstage a little weak too, considering we’ve had world title matches influenced by four people interfering without any serious repercussions just two shows ago.

I’m honestly not quite sure what Sky did to get herself involved with a number one contender match, so the outcome of Love being victorious was always obvious. Still, with that said, Daffney/Angelina shouldn’t be too bad for a mainstream American women’s match.

Glad to see the match number one contender tag match being made official. It’s a nice little addition to the undercard and a good way to keep the tag division looking strong.

Morgan attacking Pope to indicate he wants the Global Title is fine, because it’s good to see Fortune going for the gold, although if Tara was suspended for her attack on Love, then surely Morgan must meet the same consequences. If you were going to go down this route, then I really think you should have separated the mention of Tara’s suspension and this angle much more, because the idea of someone being suspended for a backstage attack is still fresh in the mind of the viewer when we saw this.

Nice enough match to continue the World X Cup along. While it mightn’t be doing a whole lot storyline-wise, I’ve always found it to be a fun gimmick, so it’s something I’m quite happy to see you doing.

Nice to see you keeping the Bischoff on the hunt thing going with a bit of an update. The major storyline needs the focus.

Nice squash to keep Joe looking dominant. He seems to be simmering along without doing anything much right now, but the promo after the match ensures we know his direction is that he’s after Fortune.

Jeff/AJ seems like a fine pairing for your main event, and as Jeff himself said in the promo, there is obvious reasoning for the pairing.

Bischoff going straight to Flair makes sense, as explained by Bischoff here, and although it’s obvious Flair isn’t going to just come out and say he did it even if he did, I thought this segment did a pretty good job of putting over how powerful Fortune is with Anderson at the forefront of the group as champion. It also of course keeps the Hogan stuff in mind, which is a positive.

I’m not quite sure if the Brits ever did anything to truly earn themselves a tag title match, although a match with The Guns at Victory Road should be good. Anyway, decent promo here from the two that addressed the two tag title concerned matches at Victory Road well, along with the match between Sabin and Magnus on this show. Solid promo, plus Doug’s new little nickname sounds a lot better than the one from last week.

As I said earlier, Victory Road has shaped up pretty nicely.

A pretty good sounding match here, with some nice little swings of momentum throughout and good spots to keep things exciting. The dirty finish works fine to protect Sabin and The Guns, while the Brits obviously come out looking strong due to Magnus picking up the win.

A bit surprised you would show Roode arriving rather than having him return with a surprise run in, although I don’t really mind either way. Obviously he’s going to interfere in the main event and is set to continue his program with Storm.

I really liked the way you started this match with the slap from Storm to Styles, really showing the type of arrogant attitude that Fortune are bringing. There was a good pace to this one throughout, kicked off well by Hardy’s corner dropkick, and the conclusion was good with Roode’s interference allowing the two on one situation, thus meaning Anderson doesn’t look too bad while being pinned. The finish with all of the major faces standing tall was a good finish.


Like last week, I thought this was another solid show. I still feel like you have some room for improvement with both your expression in forming sentences and your promo writing, but the booking itself was solid. The other things will come with time so long as you keep on writing, so the way this thread is going is certainly positive. Well done and keep at it, mang.

The June 24 edition of Impact got a 1.40 rating.

After the signing of ROH Television Champion Eddie Edwards, it has been announced that TNA have raided ROH once again. Austin Aries, Kenny King and Rhett Titus have all been signed and there are already rumours that the three of them and Edwards could form a stable similar to The Radicalz.

Samoa Joe is expected to get involved in the feud against Fortune after Victory Road.

Review


Good opeening recap as I did not read last week's show. I only got back into TNA recently so im looking to get into a good thread. So sorry if i don'tpick up on a few things that might have happened. Bischoff moment was good as we now expect someone could get fired!!


Some nice matches set up but im not sure wether I like knowing every match that's going to happen at the start of a show ? Maybe not a big deal but I dont know.


Like the idea of an official iduction into Fortune! Anderson choice of words were good he got over well as a heel and played up Fortune nicely, the last part about not having phone number etc nearly got a bit weird though ha. Im glad AJ is getting another shot, Fortune being banned from ringside is a good move aswell. Wonder who Anderson will pick from Fortune ?


What was the reason behind this match because elimination matches usually have soemthing to play for ? It seems like they are one wrestler per tag team or soemthing. Again sorry if i missed out on soemthing before. Brother Ray out, though he was going to win... I could imagine Buck's 450 was quality... Good win for Homicide and ncie heel play by Ray. It was a good match, lots of detail and a good show starting match...


That explains my comment of it seems they are all a superstar per tag team. Good show of respect by MCMG and you highlighted how good the divison is


Storm ? Ok, they may be out matched in this match down to Storm being more limitted than Ken and AJ but we will see...Not the biggest fan of Diva/Knockout matches so I just skipped to the end. The announcemant by Tenay makes it all make sense know, why they all fought earlier, That will be a great match.


Surprised with the outcome of this match, I would have thought Davairi would ahve won but i guess that's good, it wasn't predictable... Davairi's reaction after the match is interesting, keeps us wondering wether or not we should make something out of it.


Bischoff on the loose ? Im interested to know who it was. Good choice on this storyline Rocker..Squash match for Joe as i expected. Joe is an angry man, So that's AJ and Joe on board to take down Fortune, im expecting a few more...


Jeff saying bitches ? Had to laugh at that Rocker. I was expecting it to be him and it was the best choice.Good convo between Bischoff and Flair, I have a feelin that it won't be Fortuner because I know you like twists..


Really good match here. British Invasion looking good at the moment. Im glad you did not have this finish in a brawl between the two teams as it would have been a bit early for that with a few weeks to go.


Main Event lived up to its expectations and you managed to get Storm to fit into this match after I had doubts. Lots of good moments during the match. The ending, AJ getting pin on Anderson was a good idea as next week he can use that against him and it may put Anderson in his place. Ok aftermath changed the momentum for a second, RVD and Danero obviously in the picture as Fortune rivals aswell. The moment saved by Morgan getting clotheslined over the ropes, good that you used both to get over who big he is.


Overall it was a well organised show, with good matches and important matches made. I also learned a bit from this as you use alot of detail which looks better. Well Done...

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

Damn. I was reading this yesterday and as I always do, I was writing my review as I was reading. However, my computer has a glitch that when I have to many youtube videos opened at the same time, all of a sudden it closes all my tabs. That happened and I lost my review.

Anyways, since honestly I am not going to redo the review, migh as well tell you some of my quick thoughts on the show:

-Liked Mr. Anderson throughout the show. He was refreshing as the heel as even as a part of a stable and a part of a swerve last week, he didn't try to come off as a megamind, having everything planned to screw us months in advance. He just did it for the heck of it, and he came out as an asshole in general. I didn't like AJ knowing Anderson might betray him, as I think a feud between them with the motivation of AJ actually trusting Anderson and getting screwed by him would be more personal.

-Dind't like Brother Ray stealing the thunder from Homicide after the win. Homicide won the match but all the focus in the end was on Brother Ray.

-Morgan vs Pope sounds good, and it also helps with the general feel of Fortune taking over the show.

- I marked for Shawn Spears.

- Joe is in for a push. I just hope that when he joins the fight against Fortune, he has better luck that his previous stands against evil stables in TNA.

In general, I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing (personally I hate TNA in real life), this show just reeked of TNA. I don't say that in the sense that I don't like the BTB, because TNA might actually be better with some of this booking. What I am meaning is that you gave this show a TNA feel to it. How Robert Roode returned felt just how TNA would do it. The promos felt like the type of promos TNA would do. The pacing of the show, all of it.
