I might just use this preview format all the time. Serves its purpose pretty well, right? Anyway, SHOW.

TNA Thursday Night iMPACT!
The Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
July 15, 2010

A video plays recapping Victory Road, followed by the opening credits and the routine intro.

Mike Tenay: Ladies and gentlemen, with just four days removed from Victory Road we welcome you to Thursday Night iMPACT! Mike Tenay here alongside "The Hardcore Legend" Mick Foley, we're in The Arena in good old Philadelphia tonight and this past Sunday in Toledo, Ohio on the pay per view, Fortune tightened their grip on Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, all four men winning their matches, and they now hold two titles; Mr. Anderson is still the TNA World Heavyweight Champion and "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan defeated "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero to capture the TNA Global Championship.

Mick Foley: Not everybody will like it but they sure have, Professor, but the main talking point of Victory Road simply has to be the departure of Rob Van Dam from TNA, just five months into his tenure with the company, after losing the Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match to Desmond Wolfe thanks to Ric Flair.

Mike Tenay: Also, "The Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe finally practised what he has been preaching for the last month, as he took out the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson after Anderson successfully defended his title against the former Champion "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles, albeit under questionable circumstances as Anderson low blowed Styles to propel himself to victory.

Mick Foley: We're all wondering what the future holds not only for Anderson, but also for Samoa Joe! Where do they go from here?

Mike Tenay: But now let's move forward to tonight on iMPACT!; we have a huge main event in store for you, as Styles, "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy and Joe face off in a Three-Way Dance with the winner facing the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson for the gold on August 8 at Hard Justice in Loveland, Colorado!

Mick Foley: Plus, we get to see the stars of the X Division! The TNA X Division Champion"The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels teams with Brian Kendrick, Kiyoshi and Shawn Daivari to face Amazing Red, Jay Lethal, Kazarian and a mystery partner who is said to be a former X Division Champion! Who could it be?

Mike Tenay: And after the shocking return of Chris Harris this past Sunday at Victory Road after a two-year absence from the company, screwing Robert Roode out of a victory in his Street Fight against James Storm and giving Roode his second concussion in under a month, we hear from America's Most Wanted!

'To Live And Die In LAX' hits and the crowd cheer as The Latin American Exchange, Hernandez and Homicide, walk out. A fired-up Homicide slaps his chest and approaches the camera, shouting 'Olele, to live and die in LAX!' whilst a calm Hernandez strolls down the ramp. The duo enter the ring and Hernandez climbs to the second rope in the corner, posing for the crowd as does Homicide in the opposite corner, before they both climb back down and stand in the corner of the ring.

'Look Out, Look Out' plays and Team 3D, Brother Ray and Brother Devon, walk out and are greeted with a mixed reaction from the Philadelphia crowd. Ray and Devon both pose on the stage before walking down the ramp, entering the ring and immediately walking into the corner opposite their opponents LAX.

The Latin American Exchange vs. Team 3D

Ending: Homicide and Brother Devon are the legal men in the ring and Devon has Homicide in the corner. He hits Homicide with repeated elbows to the throat before bringing him into the middle of the ring. Devon Irish whips Homicide into the ropes and goes for a Clothesline but Homicide ducks it and hits Devon with a Neckbreaker. Both competitors, down on the canvas, make their way towards their corners and Homicide tags in Hernandez as Devon tags Ray in. Hernandez and Ray enter the ring and run towards each other, Hernandez hitting Ray with a powerful Clothesline which knocks the big man down. Ray gets back to a vertical base and runs at Hernandez again, but Super Mex shows his amazing strength by lifting Ray up and planting him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. After continuing to dominate for another thirty seconds or so, Hernandez gets into the corner and waits for Ray to get back up. When Ray gets to his feet, Hernandez seizes the opportunity, nailing Ray with the Mexican Boulder Shoulder! Hernandez makes the cover as a still-tired Devon begins to enter the ring but it's too late. 1! 2! 3!!!

The Latin American Exchange def. Team 3D at 8:49

Hernandez gets up and has his hand raised by the referee Jackson James to cheers from the crowd. Homicide remains on the ring apron and slaps his chest, shouting "Next World Tag Team Champions, LAX, brrrrap!" as Hernandez leaves the ring and he and Homicide walk up the ramp, high-fiving fans on their way back to the locker room having picked up a victory on the road to their title shot at Hard Justice.

Mike Tenay: LAX pick up the victory thanks to a Border Toss from Hernandez, and he and Homicide now have a big win under their belt as they head towards Loveland, Colorado on August for Hard Justice and their showdown with the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns.

Mick Foley: They had to work hard for that victory though, Mike, Team 3D took LAX to the limit but in the end Hernandez and Homicide were able to pull out the win. It just goes to show how strong the tag team division is here right now, you've got all of these great teams like LAX, 'Machine Guns, 3D, Generation Me, Helms and Moore, The British Invasion and more. The future is bright for tag team wrestling in TNA.

The crowd then begin to cheer wildly for an unknown reason, and when the camera cuts to the audience we see Rob Van Dam coming through the crowd! Wearing a T-shirt and jeanshorts, Van Dam makes his way to the front row and shouts "Get me a microphone!"

Mike Tenay: That's- that's Rob Van Dam! The man who was screwed out of his job by Desmond Wolfe and Ric Flair this past Sunday at Victory Road! And he wants a microphone!

Mick Foley: What is he doing here?

Mike Tenay: I don't know, Mick, but we'll find out after the break!

Commercial Break

Back from the break, RVD is now stood up in the front row of the crowd with a microphone in his hand.

Rob Van Dam: I'm not here to sit around and watch the show, I'm here to find out where the hell Desmond Wolfe and Ric Flair are! If you're back there, get your asses out here now because you've got some explaining to do!

"Menacing" plays and Desmond Wolfe walks out alongside 'The Nature Boy' Ric Flair, both with smirks on their faces and both wearing suits, getting huge heat from the crowd. Security tell Rob to leave The Arena as Wolfe and Flair walk down the ramp and enter the ring, both taking microphones.

Ric Flair: Hey, security! Let him stay here, let him say what he has to say before takin' him outta' here.

Rob Van Dam: Ric, what was that on Sunday?! I had that match won, I had that contract in my hand but you screwed me out of the match and my job!

Wolfe grins, which angers RVD.

Rob Van Dam: What the hell are you so happy about, Desmond?!

Desmond Wolfe: Well, nothing much, Rob, but y'know, having a job does have its perks and happiness is one.

Flair laughs, patting Wolfe on the back.

Ric Flair: Haha, woooooo! You hear that, RVD?! Desmond's got a job, and you don't! You're nothin'! You're a common man! You're just like all of these people, ya' love your cheesesteaks but ya' can't afford 'em! Desmond here, he can buy anything he wants, he could buy a mansion with the change in his pocket!

Rob Van Dam: Well why don't you buy yourself some balls, Desmond?

The crowd cheer, and Wolfe removes his shades, throwing them to the mat.

Desmond Wolfe: I need balls? Me?!

A loud 'Yeah!' comes from the crowd.

Desmond Wolfe: I'm not the one lurking around his old company amongst a crowd of wankers, Rob, that's you! It's over, you had your chance to get rid of me and you blew it!

Rob Van Dam: I did have that chance and I took it! I had your ass beat!

Ric Flair: Hey, who's the guy wearing the custom-made suit and who's the guy wearing a T-shirt and jean shorts? I think that'll let everybody know exactly who beat who.

Desmond brushes off his suit, before talking.

Desmond Wolfe: And you know what they say, Ric, rules are made to be broken... but seeing as there aren’t any rules in a Ladder Match, I don’t know why he’s still complaining!

Rob Van Dam: Yeah, well bones are made to be broken too, Desmond, and if I was in that ring right now I'd break every bone in your body!

Ooh, someone's not happy.

Desmond Wolfe: Do you know how bloody stupid that sounds? Actually, who cares? I won't have to hear any of your cheesy lines ever again, because I won't have to see you again!

Wolfe laughs to himself, as the crowd boo.

Rob Van Dam: Oh, really?

Desmond Wolfe: Yeah, really.

Rob shakes his head in denial.

Rob Van Dam: Well in that case, you're not gonna get your way, Desmond, because this isn't the last time you'll see RVD.

Cheers from the crowd.

Rob Van Dam: I'm gonna keep coming back, whether I'm allowed here or not, until I can come face-to-face with you, Desmond, and when I do, I'm gonna tear your sorry ass apart!

More cheers, but Wolfe simply laughs his statement off.

Desmond Wolfe: Yeah, yeah, keep dreaming, sunshine. Security, show him the door.

The security guards proceed to escort Rob away as Wolfe and Flair remain in the ring, both laughing. However, moments later Van Dam manages to run through security and he runs back through the crowd, jumping over the barricade!

Mike Tenay: AND HERE COMES RVD!

The crowd go nuts and Wolfe and Flair quickly leave the ring in a state of panic, RVD standing in the middle of the ring. The duo approach the ramp and when they do, Van Dam leaves the ring ready to go after them but before he can, the two security guards grab him and force Rob to the ground. More guards surround him as the crowd boo, chanting "Let him go!" but it is no use. Van Dam is lifted to his feet and is then handcuffed before being taken up the ramp and to the back by security.

Mike Tenay: Rob Van Dam tried to get his revenge on Desmond Wolfe and Ric Flair sooner rather than later, but Wolfe and Flair escaped and now Van Dam is being escorted out of The Arena in handcuffs by security.

Mick Foley: RVD should have known he wasn't going to get his hands on either Wolfe or Flair, so why he made the situation worse by breaking away from security and jumping over the barricade is beyond me.

Mike Tenay: Those two men cost Rob his job, Mick! He has every right to go after them!

Mick Foley: Yeah, I know they did, Mike, but Rob was never going to achieve anything in getting away from security because they were bound to catch him again and they did, rightly so too.

Backstage, Jeremy Borash is standing outside of a locker room with a nameplate saying 'Christopher Daniels' on it on the door. Hmm, who could be in there?

Jeremy Borash: I'm standing outside the locker room of the TNA X Division Champion "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels who in a few moments' time will be involved in Eight-Man Tag Team Action, teaming with Brian Kendrick, Kiyoshi and Shawn Daivari to face Amazing Red, Jay Lethal, Kazarian and a mystery partner said to be a former Champion in TNA.

As soon as Borash stops talking, the door opens and Daniels, in his ring gear and holding his title over his shoulder, walks out.

Christopher Daniels: What do you want?

Jeremy Borash: I was just wondering if you could give us your thoughts on who the mystery partner for the team opposing you in the Eight-Man Tag Team Match next could be.

Christopher Daniels: You called me out here to ask that?

An uncomfortable JB looks around.

Christopher Daniels: Look, the fact of the matter is, I don't give a damn who this mystery partner is. Seeing as they've only just rejoined TNA, it obviously means they're not as good as "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels, which can be said for everybody else in the X Division too. So go and waste somebody else's time with stupid questions.

Daniels barges past Borash, walking away.

Mike Tenay: The stars of the X Division in Eight-Man Tag Team action, next on Thursday Night iMPACT! when we return!

Commercial Break

Back on iMPACT!, the camera is backstage where a handcuffed Rob Van Dam is being escorted down a corridor by security guards after what happened before the break. Van Dam is confronted by Eric Bischoff, who is shaking his head.

Eric Bischoff: Why, Rob? All you had to do was walk away, but no! That's too easy for RVD, isn't it? Come on. If you're gonna create havoc like that, then I won't even let you buy a ticket to a show.

Rob scowls at Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff: I know you're upset about what happened at the pay per view but hey, life's not fair, you've just gotta' deal with it. And besides, Desmond had a point, he-

Bischoff is cut off when RVD spits in his face! Eric slowly wipes the spit away from his cheek and looks at his hand in disgust.

Eric Bischoff: ... who the hell do you think you are? I'm your- wait, no, I'm not your boss anymore because you've been fired! And I don't want people that spit in my face while I'm talking... working for me. Gentlemen, get him out of here. And don't go easy on him.

Van Dam is escorted away, before the camera cuts back to The Arena.

"Wings Of A Fallen Angel" hits and The Arena becomes filled with heat as the TNA X Division Champion 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels walks out, with Brian Kendrick, Kiyoshi and Shawn Daivari in tow. Daniels walks down the ramp with Daivari and Kiyoshi remaining behind him whilst Kendrick hurriedly strides towards the ring, entering the squared circle and removing his white jacket followed by the other three.

"Kaz" hits and Kazarian walks out with Amazing Red and Jay Lethal, getting cheers from the crowd. The trio make their way down the ramp and enter the ring, Kazarian and Red both climbing to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring and posing for the crowd whilst Lethal climbs onto the ropes and raises one hand in the air.

"Canadian Destroyer" plays and not all of the fans are sure who it is at first, but the cheers come out in full force when Petey Williams walks out! With a fixated smirk on his face, Williams walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before sliding under the ropes into the ring and immediately climbing to the second rope in the corner to pose for the approving crowd. Petey then joins his teammates in the corner, exchanging pleasantries with them.

Amazing Red, Jay Lethal, Kazarian & Petey Williams vs. Brian Kendrick, Christopher Daniels, Kiyoshi & Shawn Daivari

Ending: Petey Williams and Shawn Daivari have just entered the ring and Daivari runs at Williams but is taken down by an Arm Drag. Shawn gets back up and runs at Petey again, but this time he receives a Back Body Drop. Williams then makes an optimistic cover, Daivari kicking out on two, before he gets back to a vertical base. Petey waits for him to get back up but Daivari crawls towards the corner and tags Kiyoshi in. Kiyoshi jumps over the ropes and runs at Williams, who goes for a Clothesline but Kiyoshi rolls across the mat underneath it. He nips up to his feet but as soon as he does, Petey kicks him in the mid-section, applies a front facelock and hits Kiyoshi with a Suplex. Williams then makes the cover, One! Two! Kiyoshi kicks out on two. Petey gets back up and lifts Kiyoshi to his feet, but when he does the Japanese star kicks him in the mid-section. Kiyoshi then runs off the ropes but Williams jumps and manages to connect with a Hurricanrana. Petey gets back to a vertical base and motions to the crowd before putting Kiyoshi’s head between his legs, and nailing Kiyoshi with the Canadian Destroyer! Kazarian, Lethal and Red enter the ring and make sure Daniels, Daivari and Kendrick don’t break up the pin as Williams covers. One! Two! Three!

Amazing Red, Jay Lethal, Kazarian & Petey Williams def. Brian Kendrick, Christopher Daniels, Kiyoshi & Shawn Daivari at 8:34

Williams gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Jamie Tucker, to cheers from the crowd. Kazarian, Lethal and Red enter the ring and congratule Petey, all of them raising each other's hands in the air in the middle of the ring as Kendrick and Daivari leave and Daniels takes his TNA X Division Championship from SoCal Val. He holds it up and gets the attention of the winners, saying "I've got this! I'm still better than all of you!" before walking up the ramp.

Mike Tenay: Petey Williams marks his return to TNA with a victory, it's been far too long since we've seen the Canadian Destroyer in that ring!

We see a replay of the Canadian Destroyer to Kiyoshi.

Mick Foley; Wow, just look at that, Mike. Kiyoshi didn't have a very good landing on his neck too, it looks like he's OK, but this is Petey's night!

Mike Tenay: X Division, Christopher Daniels, take notice; Petey Williams is back!

The video begins with a black screen, remaining like that for several moments with slow-paced music playing in the background. Then, the letter A appears followed by two underscores before the video fades to black.

Commercial Break

Back on iMPACT!, the camera shows Madison Rayne who is already in the ring.

"Girlfriend" plays and ngelina Love walks out to cheers from the crowd, posing on the stage. She then walks down the ramp and enters the ring, climbing to the second rope in the corner and posing again. Love climbs back down and stands opposite her former Beautiful People compatriot Rayne.

Angelina Love vs. Madison Rayne

Ending: The match has lasted five minutes so far and Angelina Love has had the upper hand for most of the match, getting a few near falls, but Madison Rayne has proved her resillience by not kicking out and Madison has managed to get a respectable amount of offence in against her former Beautiful People compatriot Love. The end of the match comes when Rayne hits her with some forearms before running off the ropes, but Angelina hits her with a Powerslam! Love gets back to her feet and gets the Philadelphia crowd going before walking into the corner and waiting for Rayne to get to her feet. However, before she can do anything, a mystery woman wearing a biker helmet slides into the ring and attacks Love, knocking her down to the mat with a pummeling blow to the back of the head! The referee Slick Johnson calls for the bell, ending this match with a disqualification victory for Love!

Angelina Love def. Madison Rayne via DQ at 5:20

The crowd boo as the woman in the helmet climbs on top of Love, pummeling her with blows until getting back to her feet and hitting Angelina with stomps. She then gets Love up and puts her head in between her legs, lifting her up and getting her in position behind her back, nailing Angelina with the Widow's Peak!

Mike Tenay: That helmeted woman just hit Angelina Love with the Widow's Peak! I think we know who it is now, Mick!

As soon as he says that, the woman removes her helmet... and it's Tara!

Mike Tenay: Damnit, it is! It's Tara!

Having not been seen for weeks since getting suspended, Tara smirks at the sight of Love face-down on the mat, ignoring the heat she gets from the crowd. Tara then leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, laughing to herself as she makes her way back to the locker room, her suspension seemingly lifted.

Mick Foley: Looks like Tara's suspension has been lifted, Professor! She's back, and back with a grudge against Angelina Love after what happened last month at Slammiversary!

Mike Tenay: First Tara launches an unprovoked attack on Angelina backstage which results in an indefinite suspension... and now this! I hope Tara gets what’s coming to her from Angelina Love!

Mick Foley: In Tara's defence, Mike, I'm not endorsing this attack but Angelina did cost her the TNA Knockouts Championship and her pet Spider, Poison. I'm just saying.

Backstage, we see the new TNA Global Champion "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan walking down a corridor, wearing a suit with sunglasses and holding his newly-won title over his shoulder.

Mike Tenay: And here is "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan, the new TNA Global Champion! We’ll hear from Morgan when we return!

Commercial Break

As we return to iMPACT!, "Sleeping Giant" plays and the new TNA Global Champion, 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan walks out to heat from the crowd. With a big grin on his face, Morgan saunters down the ramp and climbs onto the ring apron, calling SoCal Val over to hold down the middle rope down for him. Matt steps into the ring when she does, and immediately holds his belt up in the air above his head for all to see, before hoisting the title back over his shoulder and taking a microphone.


Matt Morgan: I know you’ve all been waiting since the beginning of the show... so here I am. Matt Morgan... the new TNA Global Champion.

Matt nods his head, liking the sound of it.

Matt Morgan: This has been three years, three long years, overdue. But finally, I am a Champion! And it was never a matter of if... it was simply a matter of when.

The crowd continue to boo Morgan.

Matt Morgan: Just look at me... I am a seven-foot, three-hundred-and-ten pound giant of a man! For so long, I have been held down by politics and favouritism, but that’s all over now! Fortune are running the show, and I have what I, without a shadow of a doubt, deserve.

More heat for 'The Blueprint'.

Matt Morgan: Why are you all booing me? (Points to himself) What’s not to like about this? Finally, you have somebody who you can look up to. D’Angelo Dinero...

Cheers at the mention of Dinero.

Matt Morgan: Quiet!

That doesn't quite do the trick, as heat continues to pour into the ring.

Matt Morgan: Hey! Do you want me to continue my victory speech or not?!

Many of the fans shout ‘No!’ but Matt ignores them.

Matt Morgan: Because if you don’t show your new Champion the respect I deserve, I will drop this microphone and I will walk away from this ring!

The crowd like the sound of that, and cheer.

Matt Morgan: Actually, who am I kidding? Nothing, especially some poor, needy, selfish people like the people in Philadelphia...

CHEAP HEAT~!

Matt Morgan: ... is gonna stop me from having this moment, this moment that I've been waiting for all his time. D’Angelo Dinero has no class, he thinks he’s 'hip' because he’s from the streets of Harlem and because he’s one of the very few people from there with a job, a job he does very badly at that...

Morgan grins, ignoring the boos.

Matt Morgan: ... he thinks everything should be handed to him on a silver platter. That’s exactly why all of you cheer whenever you hear his name, because you’re all like him! But I represent so much more than that. I have worked my ass off for every single thing that I have, I am everything that a Champion should be, just like the greatest professional wrestler that ever lived... my mentor... "The Nature Boy" himself, Ric Flair.

Heat when Flair is mentioned.

Matt Morgan: I am honoured to work with Ric Flair. Without Ric, I wouldn’t be where I am today, I wouldn’t be standing in this ring with this title... wait, no, scratch that, because let's face the facts here, I’d rather be anywhere else than a wrestling ring in Philadelphia.

More cheap heat.

Matt Morgan: Without Ric Flair, I wouldn’t have this title... yeah, much better. Some of you may know this, some of you may not, but I'm gonna tell you anyway. Ric Flair’s first singles Championship in his career was the Television Championship, and after that, Ric's career skyrocketed and he became a sixteen-time World Champion and the legend that he is today and forever will be.

Mixture of heat and 'Woooooo's.

Matt Morgan: So from this day forward, in honour of my mentor... I rename this belt the TNA Television Championship.

... Cool.

Matt Morgan: Now, this has been approved of by Eric Bischoff before anybody starts complaining, hell, he even said it was a good idea. So in honour of this change... I will not defend this TNA Television Championship on pay per view.

The crowd boo, seeing this as a tactic by Morgan to avoid defending the belt.

Matt Morgan: I know what you're all thinking... you're all thinking that this is just a way to avoid defending the title, but that is not what's gonna happen, and do you wanna know why? Because I am making a vow to all of you and to all of the TNA wrestlers, that I will defend this belt once a month. So go ahead, boo me for that!

Ask and you shall receive; heat for Morgan.

Matt Morgan: And to kick things off... I’m gonna defend this TNA Television Championship, right here tonight!

Cheers from the crowd.

Matt Morgan: So I’m issuing an open challenge to anybody who wants to have the first shot at my title! Come on! I don’t care if I’m wearing a five-thousand dollar suit, I can find twice that money in my back pocket and buy another one!

Morgan removes his gold watch, jacket and tie and prepares for his open challenge to be answered by somebody.

Mike Tenay: Matt Morgan’s issuing an open challenge to the TNA locker room for a shot at his Television Championship!

Morgan waits for the challenge to be answered, and moments later...

"Catholifunk" plays and the former holder of the title, 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero, walks out to a big pop from the crowd.Before Dinero makes his way down the ramp, Morgan talks.

Matt Morgan: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Stop right there!

The crowd boo Morgan, who holds up his hand at Dinero.

Matt Morgan: I’m sorry, Pope, I’m sorry, everybody... but I forgot to tell you that this open challenge only applies to people who haven’t held this title.

Major heat from the crowd, who chant "You suck!"

Matt Morgan: So like I said, sorry, Pope... but you can’t face me for the title, so you're gonna have to go back to the locker room and watch "The Blueprint" successfully defend this belt. Somebody else come out!

"Tribal" plays and Jesse Neal walks out, not getting much of a reaction from the crowd. However, as soon as he emerges through the curtain, Dinero attacks Neal! He knees Jesse in the gut and hits him with an elbow to the back of the neck which knocks Neal down to the floor. Dinero relentlessly pummels him with stomps before reaching over the barricade and taking a Steel Chair, which he drives into Neal’s back!

Mike Tenay: D'Angelo Dinero has well and truly lost it!

Once Neal is taken care of, Dinero looks at Morgan in the ring and then walks down the ramp, sliding under the ropes into the ring with the Steel Chair!

Mick Foley: Dinero’s in the ring! And he’s got a Steel Chair!

However, Morgan quickly leaves the ring and runs around the squared circle towards the ramp, walking away to major heat from the crowd. Dinero picks up Morgan’s microphone from the mat as 'The Blueprint' walks up the ramp and onto the stage.

D’Angelo Dinero: You wanna run, Morgan?! That’s fine. But Pope’s gonna get you, no matter how big or bad you are, and Pope's gonna take... you... down!

Dinero drops the microphone as “Catholifunk” hits again as Morgan shakes his head holding his title in his hands, saying 'Not gonna happen, Pope! Not gonna happen!' before eventually disappearing behind the curtain. Dinero picks up Morgan's gold watch and looks at it, before dropping it on the floor and repeatedly stomping on it until it's smashed into pieces! He then leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, high-fiving some fans and stepping over Jesse Neal, who is still down, then walking behind the curtain.

Mike Tenay: Matt Morgan wanted a challenge, but in the end he ran away from the best challenge he could get in 'The Pope' D'Angelo Dinero!

Mick Foley: Morgan’s made himself look vulnerable to D’Angelo Dinero and the fans by running away from Dinero, Mike, and 'The Pope' could use that to his advantage, Mike.

Mike Tenay: Still to come tonight on iMPACT!, 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles, 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy and 'The Samoan Submission Machine' Samoa Joe square off in a Three-Way Elimination Match with the winner challenging Mr. Anderson for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Hard Justice on August 8 in Loveland, Colorado!

Mick Foley: But up next, Robert Roode faces Eric Young!

Commercial Break

An instrumental of "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio hits and Kenny King and Rhett Titus walk out, making their TNA debuts. Both wearing matching shirts with the letters 'ANX', King and Titus saunter down the ramp and step into the ring, after Titus gives a female fan at ringside a pleasant remark followed by a wink. They both remove their T-shirts and both take microphones.

Kenny King: Some of you know who we are, some of you don't. For those who do, you're gonna see us take over TNA and tag team wrestling, and for those who don't... well, you just won't see it comin'.

King smirks, and Titus speaks.

Rhett Titus: Let us introduce ourselves to all of you. We are the All Night Express. This right here is "The Pretty Boy Pitbull" Kenny King, and I am the gift to women that gives whenever you want it to, Rhett Titus! We've come here to win Championships and make money... and we've already got a lot of money.

Kenny King: So to everybody in the back... if you ain't runnin' with us... you're runnin' from us.

King and Titus drop their microphones and do some kind of cool handshake routine before Titus climbs out onto the ring apron and King prepares to take on one of their local opponents in this match, Aaron Jennings.

The All Night Express vs. Aaron Jennings & Greg Rodgers

Ending: We're about two minutes into this match and The All Night Express have dominated with their unknown opponents hardly getting any offence in. Kenny King and Rhett Titus have frequently tagged in and out in the two minutes that this match has lasted, and King is the current legal man out of the two of them, in control against Aaron Jennings. King gets Jennings up and Irish whips him into the ropes, then lifting him up onto his shoulders and planting Aaron with a Samoan Drop. King quickly gets Jennings back up and lifts him onto his back again in a Backbreaker Rack position, before nailing Jennings with the Coronation! However, King isn't done, he wants to make an impact and he then tags Titus in. Rhett enters the ring and lifts Aaron up in a Powerbomb position as King climbs to the top rope, and they then hit Jennings with the One Night Stand! Titus makes the cover as King keeps Greg Rodgers away: One! Two! Three!

The All Night Express def. Aaron Jennings & Greg Rodgers

Titus gets to his feet and ignores the referee Earl Hebner, as King enters the ring and raises his partner's hand in the air. The two of them perform their handshake routine again before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp.

Mike Tenay: These two guys seem pretty full of themselves, it must be said, but nonetheless Kenny King and Rhett Titus, The All Night Express, begin their TNA careers with a victory.

Mick Foley: I like them, Mike. They've got it all going for them, they can talk the talk and walk the walk as we just found out and I think they have the potential to go pretty far.

"Guilty" hits and moments later Chris Harris and James Storm walk out, Storm wearing sunglasses and a grey suit and Harris wearing sunglasses, white tank top and jeans. Harris and Storm see King and Titus on the ramp and the two teams shake hands before AMW make their way down the ramp and into the ring, seeing Jennings and Rodgers down on the mat. Harris and Storm get Jennings and Rodgers respectively to a vertical base, and Harris lifts Jennings up before swinging him to the side and nailing him with the Catatonic, and Storm almost takes Rodgers' head off with the Last Call! Afterwards, both of them take microphones and walk back into the middle of the ring.

James Storm: Before any of y'all start gettin' your hopes up, I'm gonna go ahead and tell y'all right now... that Bobby Roode ain't here tonight.

Heat from the crowd.

James Storm: I don't know why he ain't here tonight, neither does Chris. I guess Bobby can't face his people after I whooped his ass last Sunday at Victory Road!

More boos, as Storm laughs.

James Storm: But don't worry, Bobby, ya' don't have to rush back. These people won't think any less of ya'. But as for us... we can't think any less of ya', that's how low ya' are in the minds of two very intelligent people. 'Cause y'see, intelligent people and TNA fans... they just ain't alike.

Even more heat, and a 'You suck!' chant starts.

James Storm: Well, ya' should have thought about that before ya' bought a ticket to see me, shouldn't ya', ya' stupid idiots!

The heat only intensifies for Storm, and Harris now steps forward to talk.

Chris Harris: Bobby... I know you're sitting at whatever you call 'home' watching this, because you've got nothing else to do with your life, so I just wanna get something off my chest which I think you and these people need to know.

Harris removes his sunglasses.

Chris Harris: This whole Beer Money break-up thing that's happened... James isn't the only one to blame. Don't worry, you're to blame too of course, for not being able to match the standard that James and I set years ago with America's Most Wanted...

Surprisingly, some cheer when AMW is mentioned.

Chris Harris: ... but there's still one more piece of the puzzle here, Bobby, and that's me.Let me refresh everybody's memories. Years ago, AMW was the best tag team in the world, not just TNA, until there was an unfortunate split, and after that, me and James hated each other's guts. But a few months ago, after you cost your team the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Lockdown, me and James met up and... buried the hatchet, so to speak. We talked about the days where we were running the show with AMW and I convinced James that his future didn't lie with a talentless load of crap like you, Bobby Roode.

Heat for Harris after that statement.

Chris Harris: So here we are. James is under Ric Flair's wing in Fortune, doing good, and you're doing nothing. Just the way it should be. You can put the blame on me for last Sunday, Bobby, but hey, I just had my friend's back.

Heat for Harris, who looks at the crowd and holds one hand up in innocence.

Chris Harris: Now that I'm back in TNA, everybody's been asking, does this mean a reunion of America's Most Wanted? Well the answer to that question is no. Me and James have already conquered tag team wrestling, we've already established ourselves as the best tag team that's ever existed in professional wrestling, and besides, we're both capable of doing well on our own, unlike you, Bobby.

Roode shakes his head in disagreement.

Chris Harris: You need James a hell of a lot more than he needs you, Bobby, and sooner or later you're gonna realize that you're not gonna amount to anything on your own. And when you do, you're gonna take your ball and go home.

Storm takes over again.

James Storm: So Bobby... we got just one thing to say to ya', boy, somethin' that you of all people can understand pretty damn well. Sorry 'bout your damn luck.

Storm laughs and he and Harris drop their microphones, walking over Jennings and Rodgers who are somehow still down and leaving the ring. The duo walk up the ramp, raising each other's hands in the air on the stage before disappearing behind the curtain.

Mick Foley: America's Most Wanted are back with a bang, Professor.

Mike Tenay: They sure are, Mick... when we return, it's the final preparation before AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy and Samoa Joe face off with the winner facing Mr. Anderson for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Hard Justice!

Commercial Break

The video begins with the Hard Justice logo on the screen, and a pyro display in the background.

Narrator: On August 8, TNA Wrestling comes to you on pay per view with Hard Justice!

We see Mr. Anderson sitting at the top of the ladder at Slammiversary VIII with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

The logo appears again with details of how to order the event underneath.

Narrator: See all of these and more at Hard Justice on August 8! Call your pay per view provider now to order!

We see Fortune posing in the ring, before the video fades to black.

---

As we return to iMPACT!, we see the TNA Television Champion "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan in Eric Bischoff's office.

Matt Morgan: Did you see it out there, Eric? D'Angelo Dinero tried to kill me with a Steel Chair! All because I have this title! Not to mention the fact that he attacked Jesse Neal, a guy who just wanted to make a name for himself in this company by facing me.

Eric Bischoff: Yes, Matt, I did see it and don't worry, I'll take care of Dinero soon.

Morgan smirks.

Matt Morgan: Thank you, Eric, thank you.

Eric Bischoff: But seeing as you didn't defend your title tonight... you still need to stick to your promise.

Matt Morgan: What, that I'll defend this title once every month?

Eric nods his head.

Matt Morgan: Of course I'll stick to that promise! Hell, I'll even defend this title right here next week!

Eric Bischoff: Alright, I can arrange that for you.

Matt Morgan: Thank you. Y'know, I always wondered where you got your nickname 'Easy E' from, but now I know. Things have been great here with you running the show ever since Hulk's, uh, 'unfortunate' accident. Keep up the good work, chief.

Matt then leaves and Bischoff smirks, staring at the Hulk Hogan picture on the wall as the camera cuts away.

Elsewhere, the camera is in Fortune's locker room with Ric Flair, Desmond Wolfe, America's Most Wanted and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson present.

Ric Flair: Hey, Storm, Harris, great work out there tonight. Chris, you may not be an official member of Fortune, but you are welcome to hang out with us any time, brother.

Harris nods his head in approval, before the camera moves over to Anderson who doesn't look happy.

Ric Flair: What's up, Champ?

Mr. Anderson: ... we've gotta do something about Samoa Joe. I've barely been able to sleep all week, Ric, you saw what happened last Sunday, the guy's frickin' out of control!

Ric Flair: Look, don't sweat it.

Mr. Anderson: I can't help it, Ric! What if Joe wins his match tonight, huh? He'll have a title shot at Hard Justice! It's not then which I'm worried about, it's what'll happen before then! He's gonna try and-

Ric Flair: Just calm down, don't worry about Joe.

After a moment of silence, Anderson talks.

Mr. Anderson: Ric... get a limo ready. We're all getting out of here, and tell the driver that as soon as I get in there, not a second before or after, as soon as I get in there... we leave.

Ric Flair: Why?

The Champ smirks.

Mr. Anderson: Trust me, Ric... just trust me.

The camera then cuts away to the announce table with Tenay and Foley.

Mike Tenay: A very interesting turn of events backstage in the Fortune locker room, the question is, why does Mr. Anderson want Ric Flair to get a limo ready? Why are they leaving? What do they have planned?

Mick Foley: I don't know, Mike, but if there's one thing we've learned about Mr. Anderson since he came to TNA this past January at Genesis, it's that he always has a trick up his sleeve, always.

Mike Tenay: Well, it's now time for our main event; "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles, "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy and "The Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe facing each other in a Three-Way Elimination Match, with the winner challenging Mr. Anderson for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship next month on August 8 at Hard Justice! That takes place when we return!

Commercial Break

Back on iMPACT!, "Get Ready To Fly" hits and the camera cuts to the stage where 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles is standing with his back turned, wearing a red hooded jacket and getting a big pop. Styles turns around and flicks his hood back, throwing his arms out before walking down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and entering the ring. AJ runs off the ropes and poses for the crowd again before walking into the corner of the ring.

"Modest" hits as the lights go out in The Arena and the stage is veiled by smoke as 'The Charismatic Enigma' Jeff Hardy walks out, getting a good reaction from the crowd. Hardy poses on the stage before jogging down the ramp and sliding under the ropes into the ring, then climbing to the second rope in the corner and posing again before climbing down.


"Nation Of Violence" hits and Samoa Joe walks out to a great ovation. With his trademark white towel over his shoulders, Joe marches down the ramp and enters the ring, posing again before standing in the corner looking at both Hardy and Styles with a motionless look on his face.

AJ Styles vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Samoa Joe

Ending: The match has lasted ten minutes so far, and the only overall consistent competitor in this Three-Way Dance has been Samoa Joe, being in the thick of the action the entire time. AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy tried to work together earlier on against Joe, but their alliance imploded when Styles got Joe in position for the Styles Clash and Hardy stopped him. After that, they began fighting and since then they haven't reconciled. At this moment in time in the contest, Joe is in control with Hardy down following an Island Driver from him, and "The Samoan Submission Machine" is eagerly waiting for Styles to get back up so he can lock in the Rear Naked Choke... when the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson walks out! He immediately gets Joe's attention, and Anderson motions for Joe to come and get him... and Joe leaves the ring and runs up the ramp after Anderson! Meanwhile, Hardy and Styles are both up and AJ runs at Jeff but he kicks AJ in the mid-section and nails him with the Twist Of Fate! "The Charismatic Enigma" then slowly climbs to the top rope, and connects with the Swanton Bomb! Hardy makes the cover, One! Two! Three!

Jeff Hardy def. AJ Styles & Samoa Joe at 11:02

An exhausted Hardy gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Brian Hebner to a big pop from the crowd. Jeff then sinks to his knees and raises his hands above his head, before getting back up and climbing to the second rope in the corner of the ring. Hardy poses for the crowd and motions around his waist that he will win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Hard Justice, before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, high-fiving some fans on his way to the back.

The camera then cuts backstage and we see Anderson running down a corridor backstage with Samoa Joe close behind, Joe looking like he wants to kill Ken, until they reach the parking lot and there is a white limo there with the back door open. Anderson runs towards it and gets inside, the camera catching a peek of Ric Flair, the rest of Fortune and Chris Harris in there, and as soon as he gets in the door shuts and the limo drives away! Joe stops and breathes heavily, muttering under his breath "I'll get you, Anderson..." before shouting "I'LL GET YOU ANDERSON, YOU SON OF A BITCH!" The show goes off the air with a shot of Joe visibly shaking and scowling, his fists clenched and revenge on his mind...

Mike Tenay: What a turn of events here on Thursday Night iMPACT! Jeff Hardy earns a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship next month on August 8 at Hard Justice, but it could well have been Samoa Joe earning the title match if Mr. Anderson hadn't got in his business! Anderson got away tonight, but what will happen next Thursday night? Thanks for joining us, everybody, we'll see you next week!

Default Re: Shock Presents TNA Wrestling: The Revolution

Thought I'd share my thoughts on Victory Road...

LAX def. GenMe, Helms & Moore and Team 3D
Seeing as Hernandez just came off a big feud with Morgan and LAX were booked strongly leading up to this match, I was always gonna book them to win. Eliminations were pretty much in order of how high I hold the teams in regard. 3D just job to good teams, Helms and Moore are a midcard team and GenMe have a very bright future. But right now, it's all about LAX. I didn't book Homicide very well before I turned him face so I'm focused on putting him over again. Really looking forward to writing some LAX/MCMG matches.

Daffney def. Love to retain KO Title
I hate writing KO matches, period. I think I'll get rid of them again after Hard Justice.

World X Cup Gauntlet Match
Hated writing this match, but it was the only way I could write it without it getting overly confusing. Seeing as Daniels was the only heel on Team TNA, thought I might as well end it with him costing his team the match.

MCMG def. BI to retain TNA Tag Titles
Really enjoyed writing this match, as I always do when MCMG are involved. Had fun with this feud, but I think I'll have more with MCMG/LAX.

Morgan def. Dinero to win TNA TV Title
I never like writing matches on PPV where there is such a size difference between the two guys involved, so I was just glad to get past this one. In the future I'll be trying to put Morgan over more as a monster in matches, so with that said I won't be doing anything like Dinero Clotheslining Morgan over the top rope again. My bad.

Storm def. Roode in a Street Fight
I think this match could have been better, I know I won't put two gimmick matches that involve weapons on a PPV again. I felt that I had to save some material for the Wolfe/RVD Ladder Match but this match still turned out pretty good. Glad I've brought Harris back in now, not sure whether I'll just be keeping him for the Roode/Storm feud or beyond that. Time will tell, but bringing Harris has opened up more possibilities for Roode/Storm, IMO.

Anderson def. Styles to retain TNA WHC
I was watching a Danielson/McGuinness Ironman Match whilst writing this match, and I loved writing it. Best match I've written for both of these guys, IMO. Psychology is something I definitely need to work on with my matchwriting, and I'll keep it in mind in the future. The build-up for the inevitable Anderson/Joe continues, too. Really enjoying booking Joe right now.

Wolfe def. RVD in Loser Leaves Town Ladder Match
Come on, did you actually think this would end clean? This feud is far from over. There were definitely some flaws in this match, one of those days where I wasn't up for writing a gimmick match but still turned out pretty good. Glad I made it the main event too.

Overall, I think the PPV turned out rather well, I think I can do better though.

---

BTW, BkB Headliner won the predictions contest with a total of 10 points. Thus, he gets to choose a challenger of his choosing for a title of his choosing at Champions Classic I where every title is on the line. BkB, you have until the show before CC1 to choose.

Victory Road and iMPACT! feedback is welcome, too.

Default Re: Shock Presents TNA Wrestling: The Revolution

Youíve repped me several times for several random reasons. Hereís just a Ďthank youí review.

Iím not an avid TNA follower really, but if this is as good as I hear, it should be fun.

619s Feedback for Shocks Thursday Night iMPACT!


On a personal note for starters, Iím glad this is a fallout episode, seeing as how those are the ones that make it easiest to get into immediately following a PPV. Great usage of the commentary team here in the opening to get folks like me caught on up every single situation. Big ups on that.

Nice back and forth action here in the opening contest, pretty standard action tag opener it seems. Always loved LAX, so push plz. Not a whole lot to say here other than it seemed like a very enjoyable opener that did its job by putting LAX over very well.

Intense little segment here. Iím aware that Wolfe cost RVD his job, correct? You captured RVDís uber cheeziness on the mike, even if the segment was intense, so props on that I suppose. Wolfe seemed to own RVD here, even after evidently owning him last night. Captured Flair pretty well from what I remember, always basking in the riches. Like I said, RVDís not the greatest on the mike in the least, but great to see the intensity of the segment, getting the point across that these two men seriously canít share the roster with one another.

Daniels is one cranky bastard.

Eh. This Bischoff/RVD seg seemed kinda unnecessary to me, especially since RVD didnít really say anything, although spitting in your (former) bossí face is statement enough.

Excellent X-Division action here, and Iím glad to see youíre high on Petey Williams it seems. Unless youíre just trying to be a prick, the Canadian Destroyer is mark-out material, and Iím guessing itís easy to see that Williams has Daniels on notice. Williams/Daniels seems to be somewhere in the not-too-distant future, although I do wish the X-Division got a little more exposure.

Öreading this video promo, the first word that came to my mind was ĎASSí really, so my first thoughts were Billy Gunn and Rikishi. Iím pretty sure thatís not what you were going for, so Iíll take another stab in the dark and sayÖA-Train? Seen is Japan stuff and am a big fan of it, so maybe himÖ? Or the APAÖ? Maybe TNA has bought out AAA? Wild mass guessing aside, seems like a nice cliffhanger return package.

Was a tad confused here. You said the match had already gone on for five minutes, yet the DQ time was 4:20Ö? Minor technicalities aside, seems like people are really revving for returns tonight. RVD shows back up, the mystery package, Williams, and now Tara. The match wasnít even the focal point I see, just getting Tara back. I mark hard for Victoria, so props on that one.

Wow, Matt Morgan seemed really good here. This put him over pretty huge, especially coming off a nice new title win. The justification for renaming the title is also a really nice move, seeing as how itís simply renaming a title, but great work here, again. Dinero really does seem to have lost it. Iím getting a little bit of an anarchy feel for the show right now with lots of things going on. Either way, really, really great segment here; the high point for me so far.

Were these the A_ _ people? Had to Wiki them to be honest, and they seem like a pretty entertaining tag team, however, their addition seems kind of off, as you seem to have a good number of heels on the roster from what Iím seeing, so hereís two more? The team seemed very, very strong in their opening match, doing the expected and showing the local wrestlers how much they suck. Their dialogue seemed a tad forced, but thatís probably b/c Iíve never seen or heard from them before.

Another heel decree on the doctrine tonight, this time from a tag team. Iím supposiní the ANX are here to replace Beer Money or even a potential AMW reunion? Canít say that Iím a fan of either team really, seeing as how I said, Iím not the most religious follower of TNA, but Iíve heard many good things about them. Interesting segment that makes me want to look forward to seeing the futures of all three men, although none of the three in a tag team anymore can only mean the strengthening of your mid-card, which can never be a bad thing.

You got rid of Hogan? Word. As for the Fortune part of things, Kennedy seems really, really shaken about the Samoa Joe thing. I can easily see Joe winning tonight, but even if he doesnít, heís obviously gonna keep torturing Anderson until he does, even if Anderson has an evil little plan. Joe >>>>> whateverís in Andersonís head.

Another technical mistake here Ė all show, youíve been advertising this match as a ĎThree-Way EliminationĒ, but there was only one fall in the entire match. I can understand if Joe was counted out, but thereís no count outs in Three Ways (to my knowledge, anyway). If there was, there was no mention of it at all in the match description. With that it-irks-me technical garbage aside, nice wrench in the plans of Joe to have Hardy go over, glad to see heís still a face in this thread (although is current heel character is very amusing to me IRL). Hard Justice is already shaping up to be a decent card, as Iím sure Joe will find some way to get his hands on Kennedy and/or the rest of Fortune.


FINAL THOUGHTS: PRETTY MUCH AS SOLID AS THEY COME. Iíve heard good things about you as a booker, and that for a TNA thread, itís a very solid way of running things, and you didnít disappoint. There was nothing outlandish, nothing too hard for me to believe or picture at all, and everything seemed to flow in its own way. Like I said before, I'm not TNA buff, so I didn't grill you on whether people were in character here or not. I will say, though, the heels thoroughly dominated the card, with Flair/Wolfe, Morgan, Tara, AMW/ANX, even Andersonís interference kinda overshadowed Hardyís win for me. A very enjoyable read and a very enjoyable fallout/transitional show, but I expect all the faces on the other side of these feuds get more time than getting held back by security or going ballistic with a steel chair. Like I said before, I got a very anarchic feel about the entire program, right about the Morgan/Dinero segment, and the rest of the show kept that feel, as people and things just started popping out and popping up, and I donít mean that in a negative way. Iíve written in an anarchic feel for the longest time (/cheapthreadplug), but itís not necessarily a bad thing. It keeps everything and everyone on their toes, and that feel is just about right when youíre talking about a fallout show.
OVERALL: 8/10. Keep it rolliní, homes.

Much thanks for the review 619indahouse, for the Love/Rayne match time that was meant to be 5:20 so my bad on that one. I've edited it now. As for the "A_ _" video package, no, it's not the All Night Express although I can see why you thought that. So keep speculating.

Thanks again.

Once I've finished the next show, which should be done soon, I'll post the preview.

Default Re: Shock Presents TNA Wrestling: The Revolution

First off, just wanna say Victory Road was well done, even though I didn't post feedback.

Getting that out of the way. . .

Good slate of matches for tonight. 3-Way Dance looks to be pretty good, and the X Division match looks nice as well. Definitely interested in what ole' Christopher has to say as well.

Starting off the show with the tag teams is always a nice choice. LAX keeping up their momentum sits well with me after they won their match at VR. Finish looked good and made the LAX look strong. Always remember marking for them when they were legit in '06, so if you put the belts on them you'll get good noise from me. MCMG/LAX sounds good on paper so hopefully it turns out well off of paper (and onto...a word document! )

RVD! This could be interesting ... Wasting little time and cutting to the chase and calling out the two responsible for his 'firing.' Good call I suppose. Wolfe owning him was hilarious. Felt like a pretty short promo but no complaints about that really. Got to the point and I am intrigued as to where this angle is headed.

Approve of Daniels being a heel. Always thought he was better as that as to being a face. Nailed his character as well as his arrogance. JB = owned.

at RVD spitting on Bischoff. Jesus. This continues to intrigue me more.

omg @ Petey Williams returning. Marked. Figured as soon as he came out that that team was going to win, as it would look pretty bad if a guy making a return/debut gets completely owned in his first appearance. (i.e RVD/Sting lulz) Marked again for the Destroyer, still think that's one of the coolest things ever.

A_ _? Hmmm...

Assuming from the commentary that Tara is a heel here. Backstory plz. Welp, looks like I was provided it later on in the commentary. Interesting scenario. Looks like we'll be seeing Vic- I mean TARA & Love feuding for a little while, which is not something I'm against.

Matt Morgan is an interesting fellow. I remember him coming in the WWE in 2003 as one of Lesnar's goons, then as a stuttering prick. Then comes to TNA and just is 'The Blueprint.' Thought you did well with that character here, and no I have no idea why I just went through that brief history lesson. Dealwithit.jpg Dinero owns Jesse Neal and then to no surprise Morgan retreats. Thought this was well done and makes sense given both men's characters.

Aaron Jennings and Greg Rodgers...wonder where THAT came from ANE getting the squash victory over those two jobbers wasn't a surprise. Maybe they should switch names. at them then getting owned by AMW. What jobbers.

Bringing back AMW dis definitely a nice touch (though you should have forgone it for Braden 'THE GREAT' Walker. Roode getting completely slandered in this promo makes me wonder what the future holds for him. Team Canada reformation... maybe?

Not much else to say here but I wonder what Bischoff will do with Dinero.

Kennedy ducking Joe makes me think that MAYBE he'll win tonight in the 3-Way Dance. Methinks you have that saved for later on though.

Pretty good main event and as I though the Joe-Kennedy feud will extend a little while longer and they'll be facing each other one-on-one sometime down the road. Hardy isn't too bad of a contender but with this storyline I doubt he'll be the one becoming the champion at HJ. But maybe I'm wrong who knows.

Overall, pretty good show. Nothing outstandingly wrong in my opinion. Will be awaiting the next iMPACT

Abyss released?! Actually, I don't watch TNA so I couldn't care.

Also, I think your speed is pretty legendary so props for being consistent and (kinda) awesome ... but c'mon man, you need a life

I'll try to get back into the swing of things. Expect a review or some comments, unless you don't give me any time to do so

TNA Thursday Night iMPACT!
The Arena, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
July 22, 2010

After a video recapping last week's main event and the opening credits, we cut to ringside.

Mike Tenay: Hello everybody, and welcome to TNA Thursday Night iMPACT!

Mike Tenay: Also tonight on iMPACT!, "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan makes his first defense of the TNA Television Championship against a yet-to-be-determined opponent, and also "Wildcat" Chris Harris will be in action in a TNA ring for the first time in over two years!

Mick Foley: Plus, The British Invasion face Shane Helms and Shannon Moore in tag team action, Amazing Red squares off against Shawn Daivari, and Brian Kendrick faces a daunting task as he steps into the ring with "The Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe!

Mike Tenay: And that match will happen right now to get us started tonight on Spike!

"Symphony Plan" plays and Brian Kendrick walks through the curtain, not getting much of a reaction. Wearing a white jacket with his all-white attire, Kendrick quickly makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring, removing his jacket and throwing it to the floor outside the ring before standing in the corner.

Joe gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Jackson James to a good pop from the crowd. He then pulls away and approaches the corner, calling for a microphone. Joe takes a microphone and walks into the middle of the ring.

Samoa Joe: Anderson! You wanna duck me, you wanna run from me? That's fine, you keep running. But the longer you avoid me... the worse it's gonna be when I get to you. If I have to go through your boys in Fortune, then I will. I will go through each and every one of them until I have you one-on-one in this ring, and when I do, I'm gonna do what I was meant to do at Slammiversary... win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.

Suddenly, "Menacing" hits and Desmond Wolfe walks out, getting a lot of heat from the crowd. Wearing a grey suit and sunglasses, Wolfe walks down the ramp towards the ring.

Mike Tenay: Samoa Joe with the victory and some words for the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson, but here comes Anderson's fellow Fortune member, the man who cost Rob Van Dam his job, Desmond Wolfe! We have to go to a commercial break now, folks, but when we return to iMPACT!, we'll hear from Wolfe! Don't go anywhere!

Commercial Break

Back on iMPACT!, Wolfe is standing in the ring opposite Joe.

Desmond Wolfe: Apologies for interrupting you, Joe...

Wolfe is cut off by heat from the crowd.

Desmond Wolfe: Hey! I'm trying to talk to the gentleman here!

The crowd continue to boo, and Desmond seemingly gives up on trying to stop them.

Desmond Wolfe: Apologies for interrupting you, Joe, but I just couldn't help myself when I heard something that you said. You said that you would go through the rest of Fortune until you got to Mr. Anderson, a man who happens to be the greatest Champion that has ever graced a ring in the cesspit called Philadelphia...

Huge heat for Wolfe, who merely smirks.

Desmond Wolfe: ... and as somebody who always tells the truth, that being a fine example, I'm out here to tell you, Joe, that just won't happen.

Samoa Joe: Says who?

Desmond Wolfe: Says... me. Just face it, Joe, there's a reason why you haven't been the TNA World Heavyweight Champion in almost two years, and that's because you are not good enough. You're not good enough to beat Mr. Anderson... and you're not good enough to beat me, Desmond Wolfe.

More heat for Wolfe, and Joe shakes his head.

Samoa Joe: Y'know, Desmond, since the day you came to TNA, I've wanted to face you. Not for any personal reasons... I just wanted to face you. But now... it's personal. You and Ric Flair cost my good friend Rob Van Dam his job...

Big pop when RVD is mentioned.

Samoa Joe: So if you say that I'm not good enough to beat you...

Joe moves closer to Wolfe.

Samoa Joe: Then I guess you'd have no problem with facing me at Hard Justice.

Big pop from the crowd, and Desmond slowly removes his sunglasses.

Desmond Wolfe: Me and you... at Hard Justice. If you want that, Joe... then you've got it.

More cheers from the crowd.

Desmond Wolfe: But hey... be careful what you wish for.

Samoa Joe: Oh, I know what I'm getting myself into, Desmond. And I hope you know what you're getting yourself into, because I'm not the only guy you're in the ring with right now.

Desmond Wolfe: What the bloody hell are you talking about?

Samoa Joe: Well... let's just say RVD was right when he said he'd be back.

Wolfe's eyes suddenly light up and he turns around, but then Joe wraps his arms around his throat and pulls him down, locking him in the Rear Naked Choke!

Mike Tenay: Samoa Joe tricked Desmond Wolfe into believing that Rob Van Dam was in the ring, and now he's got Wolfe in the Rear Naked Choke!

The crowd go nuts as Joe tries to choke Desmond out, but then James Storm, Matt Morgan, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson, Chris Harris and Ric Flair come out and rush to the ring! Joe lets go of Wolfe and gets to his feet, daring Fortune and Harris to come into the ring but they stay on the outside and Wolfe manages to escape from the ring. He joins Fortune and Harris on the ramp, Anderson standing a few feet behind everybody else and staring at Joe who is looking directly at him as well.

Mike Tenay: Damn! Fortune saved Wolfe from being choked out by Samoa Joe, but did you see the look on the face of the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson there?

Mick Foley: I did, Professor, Anderson knows that he is still a wanted man, especially by Samoa Joe, and he's lucky that Desmond Wolfe is now in Joe's way.

Mike Tenay: We now know that at Hard Justice, for the first time ever here in TNA, it will be Desmond Wolfe and Samoa Joe one-on-one, live in Loveland, Colorado on August 8 on pay per view!

Mick Foley: As great as that's gonna be, Mike, I just wanna see Joe versus Anderson! That's what we all wanna see!

A graphic previewing the tag team main event appears on the screen.

Mike Tenay: Don't forget in our main event tonight on iMPACT!, "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles teams with the new #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy, to face the Champ Mr. Anderson and Desmond Wolfe, two men who we just saw.

Daivari kicks out again. Red gets him back up again and kicks him in the mid-section, applying a front facelock. Before he can lift him up for a Suplex, Daivari fights out of it with some blows to the mid-section followed by a Neckbreaker! Daivari sits Red up and places his knee on Red's back, proceeding to apply pressure on his spine by pulling his arms back as far as possible.

Daivari keeps Red in the position for approximately half a minute, until Red manages to adjust his position and get his feet to the ropes. Daivari reluctantly lets go of his opponent on the referee's four count and gets Red to a vertical base. Daivari places his head through Red's legs and lifts him up in position for the WMD Driver.

Amazing Red def. Shawn Daivari at 6:21

Red gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee Jamie Tucker to cheers from the crowd. Red then climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses for the crowd before climbing back down, but then "White Train" plays and Eric Bischoff walks out, getting a mixed reaction from the crowd. With a smirk on his face, Bischoff walks down the ramp and enters the ring.

Mike Tenay: Amazing Red picks up the victory against Shawn Daivari... but what's Eric Bischoff doing out here?

Mick Foley: Your guess is as good as mine, Professor, I guess we're gonna find out right now.

Eric takes a microphone, as Red leaves the ring and walks up the ramp.

Eric Bischoff: Red, congratulations on the victory, but you might wanna stick around because this announcement concerns you.

Red stops and stands on the ramp.

Eric Bischoff: But don't worry, you're not the only one. Christopher Daniels, Jay Lethal and Kazarian... this concerns you too. You four competed for Team TNA in the World X Cup, and there's no denying it, you should have won. There's one reason why you didn't, and that's Daniels.

Heat for Daniels.

Eric Bischoff: So to punish Daniels for what he did, and to reward Kazarian, Lethal and Red for their effort... on August 8, at Hard Justice, Christopher Daniels will defend the TNA X Division Championship in a Four-Way Elimination Match against Amazing Red, Jay Lethal and Kazarian!

The crowd cheer and Bischoff's music hits as he leaves the ring and heads back up the ramp after Red, who looks happy with the announcement.

Mike Tenay: Wow! Did you hear that, Mick? 'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels will defend the TNA X Division Championship against Amazing Red, Jay Lethal and Kazarian in a Four-Way Elimination Match on August 8 at Hard Justice!

Mick Foley: Daniels cannot be happy about that, there's a very good chance he could lose the belt in that match, Mike!

Mike Tenay: Daniels has always found a way though, Mick, he's done it time and time again this year but I honestly think this one could be beyond his reach.

Backstage, Desmond Wolfe and Ric Flair are stood in a corridor.

Desmond Wolfe: Who the hell does Samoa Joe think he is? Putting his hands on me! He doesn't know what he's getting himself into, Ric!

Flair puts his hands on Wolfe's shoulders, reassuring him.

Ric Flair: Hey, just calm down, Desmond. You're better than him! He's nothin'! If he wants to get our attention then let him do it, he's the one that's gonna get his ass kicked at the end of it, not you. You just need to concentrate on your match with Ken against Hardy and Styles, alright?

Desmond Wolfe: OK, OK... but what about RVD? Is he here or not?

Ric Flair: I don't know, I don't care, and neither should you. RVD is history, he's gone and he ain't comin' back. You need to focus! Tag team match, tonight! Just think of it, you could pin either of 'em, you'd go right to the top!

Desmond begins to smile.

Desmond Wolfe: You know what? You're right. I can beat both of them, and then at Hard Justice I'm gonna beat that big load Samoa Joe.

Ric Flair: Exactly! You're the man! Now let's go.

Flair and Wolfe then walk away, as we go to a break.

Elsewhere, Angelina is in Eric Bischoff's office.

Eric Bischoff: Would you be nice enough to tell me why you're here, Angelina?

Angelina Love: Eric, you have to do something about Tara. The first thing she does when she comes back from suspension is attack me from behind! What's going on?

Eric Bischoff: What do you expect me to do? Angelina, I'm done with suspensions and punishments. I have a lot on my plate right now, my best friend Hulk Hogan is still at home after being attacked, so if you want something done, then do it yourself. That goes for everybody in this company.

Angelina Love: Do it myself? ... I'll remember you said that.

Love turns around and walks out of Bischoff's office.

The camera then cuts elsewhere, where Chris Harris is walking down a corridor on the way to the ring with James Storm.

Mike Tenay: Chris Harris marks his return to TNA with an impressive victory over Stevie Richards.

Mick Foley: Harris clearly hasn't missed a step from his old days in TNA, and he didn't need any help from James Storm to pick up the victory tonight.

Mike Tenay: Speaking of James Storm, as we all know, his former tag team partner Robert Roode suffered a concussion just under two weeks ago at Victory Road when Harris smashed a beer bottle over his head during his Street Fight against Storm, who did the exact same thing to Roode last month at Slammiversary. However... listen to this, ladies and gentlemen; next week, right here on iMPACT!, we will hear from Robert Roode via satellite!

Mick Foley: Hopefully we'll get an update on how he's doing and when he'll be back in TNA, or maybe even if he'll be back in TNA because we don't know the severity of his condition right now. The last two pay per views haven't been happy ones for Robert Roode despite beating James Storm last month at Slammiversary, but will he be at Hard Justice next month on August 8 in Loveland, Colorado?

Mike Tenay: The confirmed matches for Hard Justice so far are as follows; the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson versus Jeff Hardy for the title, the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns defending against The Latin American Exchange, Christopher Daniels defending the TNA X Division Championship against Amazing Red, Jay Lethal and Kazarian in a Four-Way Elimination Match and Desmond Wolfe versus Samoa Joe!

Mick Foley: But now, let's go backstage where Taz is standing by with the man who made his return to TNA last week, "The Maple Leaf Muscle" Petey Williams.

The camera cuts backstage where Taz is stood with Williams.

Taz: Thanks Mick, I'm stood here with "The Maple Leaf Muscle" Petey Williams who returned to TNA after a year-and-a-half absence, pinnin' Kiyoshi in the Eight-Man Tag Team X Division Match. Is it good to be back, Petey?

Petey Williams: You're damn right it's good, Taz. For the last year and a half, I've been competing all over the world and speaking as a guy who has done that, I can say right now that there is nothing else in professional wrestling like the X Division.

Cheers from the crowd.

Petey Williams: You have guys here like The Amazing Red, Jay Lethal, Kazarian... and dare I say it, the X Division Champion Christopher Daniels.

Heat from the crowd.

Petey Williams: But Chris, I hope for your sake that you watched closely last week when I stepped back into that ring because that is the beginning of your end. What you saw last week was Petey Williams at his absolute best, and what you saw last week was a man who wants Championship gold. Championship gold... which happens to be yours. But soon, Chris, real soon... "The Maple Leaf Muscle" will become a 3-time X Division Champion. And that... is the real gospel.

Williams walks away to cheers from the crowd.

Elsewhere, the TNA Television Champion "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan is walking down a corridor in his ring gear on his way to the ring, with his title strapped around his waist.

Mick Foley: And there is our TNA Television Champion, "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan!

Mike Tenay: After the break, Morgan makes his first defense of his title! Don't go anywhere, folks!

"Sleeping Giant" hits and the TNA Television Champion 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan walks out, getting a lot of heat from the crowd. Morgan poses on the stage before walking down the ramp, entering the ring and calling for a microphone, receiving one from SoCal Val.

Mike Tenay: 'The Blueprint' Matt Morgan's out here to make his first defense of his TNA Television Championship, but we thought that last Thursday night and it didn't happen.

We see highlights of what happened last week with Morgan and D'Angelo Dinero.

Mick Foley: Last week on iMPACT!, Morgan issued an open challenge to the TNA roster for a shot at his title and it was answered by the man he won the title from at Victory Road "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero. However, Morgan changed the rules of the open challenge, saying former Champions could not answer it and Jesse Neal then came out but Dinero attacked him and then went for Morgan. But, Matt got away and now he's back to try again.

Morgan stands in the ring with a microphone.

Matt Morgan: Alright, just like I said last week, I am out here to defend my TNA Television Championship. I would have gladly defended it last week, but a certain somebody stopped me from doing that.

The crowd cheer, Morgan referencing to D'Angelo Dinero.

Matt Morgan: I was gonna defend this title against Jesse Neal, a guy who just wanted his chance to shine in the spotlight on national television, but D'Angelo Dinero selfishly attacked him so he couldn't do that.

More cheers from the crowd.

Matt Morgan: But this week, there's gonna be no shenanigans and I will defend this belt because I am a fighting Champion.

Morgan grins, as the crowd boo.

Matt Morgan: So anybody back there who wants a shot, and hasn't held this title before...

Matt pauses and looks around, before continuing.

Matt Morgan: ... please, come down to this ring and face me.

Morgan drops his microphone and unstraps his title from around his waist, hoisting it over his shoulder and waiting for his challenge to be answered. Moments later, "To Live And Die In LAX" plays and The Latin American Exchange walk out, getting a good pop from the crowd. Hernandez and Homicide walk down the ramp and enter the ring, as an anxious Morgan picks his microphone back up and Hernandez takes one as well.

Matt Morgan: ... alright then, Homicide, let's do this.

Hernandez and Homicide look at each other and laugh, with Morgan, obviously wanting to face Homicide instead of his partner, looking confused.

Hernandez: Homicide? No, no. I know you'd rather face him, Matt, because he's smaller than me despite the fact that he could whoop your ass anyway...

Morgan laughs off Hernandez's comments.

Hernandez:... but you're not, because I'm answering your open challenge.

Big pop from the crowd.

Hernandez: So if you've got the balls, you won't add any stupid stipulations to your open challenge and you'll defend your TNA Television Championship against me 'cause we've got unfinished business from Slammiversary.

Matt Morgan: You think I'm ducking you, Hernandez? Why would I duck you? If you think I am, then you're what your (Uses air quotations) "people" would call (Air quotations again) "loco". In case you've forgotten, I beat you last month at Slammiversary so defending this title against you... no problem, "amigo".

Morgan drops the microphone and Hernandez does the same, mouthing "Let's do this". The referee Earl Hebner takes the TNA Television Championship and holds it up in the air before handing it out of the ring so the match can begin.

Matt Morgan © vs. Hernandez

The bell rings for the match to begin and Hernandez and Matt Morgan approach the middle of the ring, having a heated staredown. They exchange some words until Morgan points to himself and says slowly "You can't beat me", to which Hernandez reacts with a right hand! Morgan staggers backwards and is forced into the corner as Hernandez hits him with more blows. He continues to unload on Morgan until the referee gets in between them and Hernandez is forced to back away, much to the disapproval of the crowd who begin a "Hernandez!" chant. When the referee allows the action to continue, Hernandez runs at Morgan but Matt quickly rolls under the ropes out of the ring, getting a lot of heat as he holds up a timeout hand gesture to Hernandez. Morgan regroups on the outside whilst "Super Mex" waits impatiently in the ring and he then runs off the ropes, charging across the ring. It looks like Hernandez is going to go for the Superman Dive, but he stops when Morgan steps out of the way, ensuring that he doesn't go over the top rope only to not meet his target.

Morgan cautiously re-enters the ring and he and Hernandez prepare to lock up... but Morgan slaps Hernandez across the face instead! The crowd boo Morgan who laughs in Hernandez's face, but he retaliates with a slap of his own! Hernandez follows up with a kick to the mid-section and goes for an Irish whip into the ropes but Morgan counters it into an Irish whip of his own.

He turns Matt over onto his back and hooks his legs, making the cover: One! Two! Kick out on two from the TNA Television Champion. Hernandez gets Morgan back to a vertical base and tries to lift him up for a Scoop Slam but three hundred and thirty pounds proves to be too much. Morgan fights him off with some blows to the back and he lifts Hernandez up, saying "This is how it's done!" before planting him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. Morgan then runs off the ropes and hits Hernandez with an Elbow Drop to the sternum before making the cover: One! Two! Hernandez kicks out on two.

Both men lie side-by-side on the mat for a few moments until Hernandez gets back to his feet, followed by Morgan. The two competitors trade blows in the middle of the ring and Hernandez gains the upper hand in the exchange. He runs off the ropes but when he comes back Morgan grabs him by the throat, lifts him up and nails him with a Chokeslam! Instead of going for the cover straight away and giving himself a realistic chance of retaining his TNA Television Championship right here, Matt decides to gloat, outstretching his arms and basking in his glory. Afterwards, Morgan goes for the cover: One! Two! No! Hernandez kicks out! Morgan took too long to make the cover, and as a result this match continues.

He gets Hernandez to his feet, but as soon as he does "Super Mex" begins to fight back with some blows to Morgan's mid-section. Hernandez runs off the ropes, as does Morgan, and "The Blueprint" goes for the Carbon Footprint but Hernandez ducks it, runs off the ropes and hits Morgan with the Mexican Boulder Shoulder, knocking him down to the canvas! Hernandez makes the cover, could this be it? One! Two! Three- No! Morgan gets the shoulder up! Hernandez looks at the referee in shock before getting over it and getting to a vertical base. With Homicide cheering on at ringside, Hernandez backs into the corner and waits for his opponent to get back up. When Morgan is on his feet, Hernandez runs out of the corner and charges towards him but Morgan meets him with a low blow to the groin! The referee calls for the bell, ending this in a disqualification victory for Hernandez!

Hernandez def. Matt Morgan via DQ at 7:10

The crowd boo as Hernandez sinks to his knees and Morgan hits him with a boot to the face, knocking him to the ground. Homicide enters the ring and runs towards Morgan, but "The Blueprint" kicks him in the mid-section and throws him through the ropes out of the ring. Morgan hits Hernandez with some stomps before demanding that he is given his TNA Television Championship, and an anxious SoCal Val gives it to him. Matt takes a few steps back, waiting for Hernandez to get up so he can hit him with the belt, but then "Motorcity" hits and the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns come out and run to the ring, getting a big pop from the crowd! Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin enter the ring with their title belts and Morgan quickly leaves the ring, heading towards the ramp and then walking up to the stage.

Mike Tenay: Matt Morgan was about to hit Hernandez with his title belt, but luckily the TNA World Tag Team Champions The Motor City Machine Guns came out to make the save!

Mick Foley: Hernandez and Homicide, The Latin American Exchange, will challenge The Motor City Machine Guns for the belts on August 8 at Hard Justice, but obviously there's no bad blood between them right now, Mike.

Homicide rolls back into the ring and is helped back up by Shelley, Sabin helping Hernandez to his feet, and the two teams have a brief staredown in the ring before shaking hands to cheers from the crowd. Sabin and Shelley then leave the ring and walk back up the ramp, as LAX's music plays again.

Backstage, we see "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero in his locker room watching the show on a television screen with a smirk on his face.

D'Angelo Dinero: Hahaha... Matt Morgan thought he had a problem then... well he's got another thing coming from Pope real soon.

Dinero continues to laugh to himself, until the camera cuts away.

Elsewhere, we see Desmond Wolfe and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson backstage on their way to the ring with Ric Flair, and then we see AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy also backstage heading for the ring.

Mike Tenay: Coming up next on iMPACT!, it's our tag team main event; Desmond Wolfe and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson, two members of Fortune, versus AJ Styles and Jeff Hardy! It's the rematch from the February 15 Monday Night special, when we return!

Commercial Break

Back from the break, "Four" blares out and Desmond Wolfe and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Anderson walk out with Ric Flair, getting tremendous heat from the crowd. The trio walk down the ramp and Anderson and Wolfe enter the ring as Flair stays on the outside, the two of them holding up the Fortune handsign before walking into the corner.

"Get Ready To Fly" plays and the camera cuts to the stage where AJ Styles is standing with his back turned and he then turns around, flicking back the hood on his black jacket and throwing his arms out. Styles then walks down the ramp, high-fiving some fans before entering the ring as Anderson and Wolfe quickly leave, and posing for the crowd again.

Then, "Modest" hits and the lights go out and smoke covers the stage as Jeff Hardy emerges to a good pop from the crowd. Hardy dances around before jogging down the ramp, high-fiving some fans and sliding into the ring. Jeff climbs to the second rope in the corner and poses for the crowd, before climbing back down and high-fiving Styles in the corner.

Desmond Wolfe & Mr. Anderson vs. AJ Styles & Jeff Hardy

AJ Styles and Mr. Anderson climb out onto the ring apron and the former rivals, Desmond Wolfe and Jeff Hardy, approach the middle of the ring. They cautiously circle each other around the ring before jumping into the collar-to-elbow tie-up. They both try to overpower each other but neither can do it, and the tie-up is broken when Wolfe drives his knee into Hardy's mid-section. Desmond gets Jeff in a headlock, holding up his two-fingered gesture to the crowd whilst doing so which gets a lot of heat. Suddenly, Hardy lifts Wolfe up for a Belly-to-Back Suplex but Desmond flips back and lands on his feet behind him. Jeff turns around and is floored by a European Uppercut from Wolfe. Desmond towers over Hardy, shouting at him "you don't belong in the same ring as me, you wanker!" before going for an Elbow Drop but Jeff rolls out of the way and Wolfe misses. As soon as he does, Jeff climbs on top of him and retaliates to Desmond's insult with rapid blows to the head until the referee intervenes.

Hardy is forced to stop and he reluctantly does, backing away and waiting for Wolfe to get up. When he does, Jeff runs at him but Desmond takes him down to the mat with a Drop Toe Hold. Wolfe turns Hardy onto his back and sits him up, applying a Chin Lock. Desmond keeps it applied for about fifteen seconds until Jeff fights out of it with some right hands to Wolfe. Hardy gets back up and kicks Desmond in the mid-section, applying a front facelock and going for a Suplex. Wolfe lands on his feet behind Jeff and turns Hardy around, poking him in the eye! A momentarily-blinded Hardy staggers backwards into the corner as the Philadelphia crowd boo the actions of the Englishman. The referee asks Wolfe if he just poked him in the eye and Desmond replies "What? No, no! Just an open-handed slap!" before approaching Jeff in the corner. Wolfe hits Hardy with a handful of open-handed Chops to the chest until Jeff's chest is bright red, but when Desmond pauses to taunt the crowd Hardy hits Wolfe with a Chop of his own.

Jeff follows up with a few more, before lifting him up and planting him on the mat with a Scoop Slam. Hardy runs off the ropes and Wolfe rolls over onto his stomach as Hardy jumps over him and runs off the ropes again. When he comes back, Desmond goes for a Hip Toss but Jeff floats over and takes Wolfe down with a Hip Toss of his own. Hardy runs off the ropes and hits Desmond with a Leg Drop, followed by a cover: One! Two! Kick out on two from Wolfe. Jeff gets Wolfe back to his feet and hits him with some right hands before running off the ropes, going for a Clothesline but Desmond ducks it and pins Hardy with a Backslide! One! Two! Jeff kicks out. Both men get back up and they both instinctively approach their corners, tagging their partners into the match for the first time. AJ Styles and Mr. Anderson step into the ring together for the first time since Victory Road and prepare to lock up, but when Anderson taunts him by holding up the Fortune handsign, Styles hits him with a right hand!

Ken staggers backwards and AJ Irish whips him into the ropes, flooring Anderson with a Shoulder Block. Anderson gets back up and runs at Styles but is taken down by an Arm Drag. He gets back up again and runs at AJ, going for a Clothesline, but Styles ducks it and when Anderson turns around, AJ hits him with a Dropkick! "The Phenomenal One" subsequently goes for the cover: One! Two! Kick out on two from the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Styles gets back to a vertical base and gets Anderson up, wrenching his arm around and applying a wrist lock. AJ tries to bend Ken's arm back as far as it can go, but the hold is broken when Anderson kicks Styles in the mid-section. He shakes off the pain from that wrist lock before getting AJ in a headlock and transitioning it into a headlock takedown. Ken keeps Styles down on the mat for a while until AJ makes it to his feet and pushes him away into the corner of the ring where Desmond Wolfe is stood. Wolfe makes the blind tag just as AJ runs forward and hits Anderson with a Clothesline in the corner.

Anderson falls down to the mat and Styles turns him over onto his stomach, making the cover but the referee says Anderson isn't the legal man. Meanwhile, Wolfe enters the ring and AJ gets to his feet but as soon as he does, Desmond applies a hammerlock and transitions it into a DDT! Wolfe sits up and laughs to himself having outsmarted Styles, before hooking his legs and making the cover: One! Two! AJ kicks out. Wolfe gets back to his feet and gets AJ up, Irish whipping him forward into the corner of the ring. Desmond pulls Styles back by his head and kicks him in the back, rapidly following up with a Clothesline. Wolfe drags AJ into the middle of the ring by his legs and makes the cover: One! Two! Styles kicks out. Desmond gets AJ back to his feet and lifts him up in a Belly-to-Back Suplex position, only to take him towards the ropes and drop him down on them. With Styles positioned on the ropes, Wolfe climbs to the second rope in the corner and holds up his two-fingered gesture with both hands to the crowd before going for the Top Rope Lariat, but AJ moves out of the way.

Desmond lands on his feet on the mat as Styles positions himself on the ring apron and Wolfe runs towards him but AJ hits him with a Shoulder Thrust through the ropes. Styles then jumps onto the ropes and springboards off them, hitting Wolfe with a Springboard Flying Forearm Smash! Both men lie down on the mat as the crowd cheer and the majority chant "Let's go, AJ!" whilst a minority chant "Desmond Wolfe!" Both competitors crawl towards their corners and Wolfe tags Mr. Anderson back into the match while AJ tags Jeff Hardy back in. Both men run at each other and they rapidly exchange right hands until Hardy runs off the ropes, but when he comes back Anderson hits him with a Dropkick to the left knee! Jeff goes down and clutches his knee in pain as Anderson gets back up and surveys his upcoming Hard Justice opponent with a smirk on his face. Ken hits Hardy with some stomps to his left knee before getting him to a vertical base.

Anderson runs off the ropes behind him and when he comes back he hits Jeff with a Chop Block, again to the left knee! Hardy goes down clutching his knee again and Anderson makes the cover: One! Two! Hardy kicks out. Ken briefly glances at the referee, and then at Ric Flair outside the ring who is holding both thumbs up with a grin on his face, before getting to his feet. Anderson looks at Hardy, then at Flair and then at the crowd, before grabbing Jeff's legs and applying the submission move that Flair made famous, the Figure Four Leg Lock! The crowd erupt with boos as Hardy writhes in pain and Anderson keeps the pressure applied as he laughs hysterically. He shouts at Jeff "Tap out, Jeff! Ya' don't wanna get injured for the pay per view, do ya'? C'mon, tap out!" but Hardy refuses to submit.

With the crowd cheering him on, Jeff eventually edges backwards across the ring and makes it near the ropes, but Anderson then pulls Hardy forward back into the middle of the ring! A lot of fans look like they're about to accept the reality that Jeff is going to tap out, but when it looks like he is going to, AJ Styles enters the ring and breaks the submission hold! The crowd cheer as Styles quickly goes back to the ring apron, having no other choice but to save his partner from submitting and possibly injury too. Anderson gets up and approaches the corner, berating AJ for breaking the hold, but Styles sends the TNA World Heavyweight Champion backpedalling into the middle of the ring with a right hand! Anderson goes backwards, right into a Schoolboy pin from Hardy who is still down! One! Two! Three- No! Anderson kicks out just before the count of three! Jeff almost pinned his Hard Justice opponent out of no where there and Anderson gets to his feet, going for a stomp on Hardy.

However, Jeff crawls through his legs and frantically makes it to the corner, tagging Styles back in! AJ enters the ring and Anderson runs at him going for a Clothesline, but Styles ducks it, wraps his arms around Anderson and plants him with a Bridging German Suplex! One! Two! No! Anderson gets the shoulder up! "The Phenomenal One" gets back to a vertical base and gets Anderson up, lifting him onto his shoulders in a Backbreaker Rack positions, but then twists him around and hits a Sit-Out Powerbomb! The cover is made again: One! Two! Three- No! Wolfe enters the ring and breaks up the cover! The crowd boo Wolfe, even though AJ did the same thing and they cheered, as he retreats to the ring apron and Styles gets to his feet and runs towards Desmond in the corner, but before he can do anything the referee stops him. As the referee is momentarily looking at Wolfe, AJ approaches the middle of the ring and grabs Anderson to get him up... but Anderson hits him with a Low Blow!

The crowd heavily boo Anderson who then rolls Styles up with a Schoolboy as the referee sees it and makes the cover, an exhausted and slightly-injured Hardy not quick enough to enter the ring to break it up: One! Anderson's holding onto the tights! Two! Three! Anderson and Wolfe pick up the victory thanks to cheap tactics!

Desmond Wolfe & Mr. Anderson def. AJ Styles & Jeff Hardy at 12:17

Anderson gets to his feet and Flair enters the ring, raising his and Wolfe's hands in the air jubilantly to heat from the crowd. Hardy slowly enters the ring and Styles on the opposite side of the ring and the trio look at them with smirks on their faces before they leave the ring and walk up the ramp back to the locker room as the show goes off the air.

Mike Tenay: Mr. Anderson may not have pinned Jeff Hardy, but he did pin AJ Styles right in front of him thanks to a low blow, just like at Victory Road! The Fortune duo pick up the victory tonight to avenge their loss from the February 15 Monday night special, thanks for joining us, we'll see you again next week for iMPACT! right here on Spike!

Victory Road Feedback

I see that you basically use the same format as Szumi. This is a good thing because it's still a fresh way to set out shows, I just hope others don't start to butcher it like everybody's done to the Wolfy/Mac layout. Good choice to open things off with the tag team match, very interesting mix of teams. Team 3D gone first is a huge shocker and something I'm not quite happy about, as really, they're the biggest heel side in your division atm (I think) and thought they could've done better putting over the winners. Ahwell. You also made Bubba Ray look fairly weak as he pretty much got his ass handed to him and didn't really fight back nor have Devon help. Helms and Moore go next which I'm happy with as I never liked Shannon Moore and think Helms could do well in your X-Division. LAX winning was a good move, pretty sure I picked that too. Overall thought it was a solid match to kick things off, apart from the only heels going first, not a bad start at all. ***

The Knockouts match was never gonna be anything special, but I felt it was a solid job. Of course it had to end fairly quickly and womens wrestling getting 8 mins on a PPV I feel is adequate time, nice work on the ending, catching us off guard with it. Daffney retaining is fine for now, but honeslty, I hope a better Knockout takes the strap down the line (like Angelina perhaps). **1/4

Ah yes the World Cup. I remember when I first watched TNA they ran something similar to this, and maybe they've continued it as a yearly tradition, I'm not sure. Anyways, this was some match to write out, almost like a Royal Rumble of sorts, 16 entries and lots of action = clusterfucker. I but love clusterfucks so hey. Tried to keep up as well as I could, Team Japan got raped, Team TNA were looking good throughout, and I thought you managed to keep the excitement high throghout, and Team International winning it somewhat surprised me as I felt TNA would take it, but kudos to you for having a go at such an insane match set up and pulling off a decent if all over the shop match. ***

I felt like this match between the MCMG and British Invasion was your best match on the show so far. Obviously as most tag matches go, the heels dominate the middle part after a hot start from the faces and it wasn't a shock to see the extra man keep the heels in the drivers seat, what else is he good for? I definitely feel the Guns stole the show and carried the excitement though as they started hitting plenty of high flying moves. Glad to see them retain, the MCMG are one of TNA's best tag team ideas and them flying the flag for the tag division is good stuff. ***1/4

Glad that you kept the Dinero/Morgan match short as I really don't rate Morgan or Dinero for that matter, yet you want to build Morgan as a force so he had to go over which he did. I don't think we've seen the end of this one due to how the match ended, but I think they will need a gimmick match next time because this was a fairly average match overall. ***

Best match so far between Storm/Roode. Loved it. Brutal stuff as you'd want and expect from a streetfight, both men taking some bumps and beating the hell out of each other. I've always fancied seeing these two feud, after being partners for so long, so glad you've done this. CHRIS HARRIS showing up at the end was out of the blue, and possibly an AMW reunion is on the cards? Anyways as I said, this was your best match so far, very enjoyable from start to finish with an unexpected yet well done finish. ***1/2

I find it hard to say, but you wrote a good WRESTLING match involving these two, especially the spot monkey (still love AJ tho <3), so hats off to you for that. I like how you showed us some of Anderson's attitude as he flipped off the fans. Judging by the ending, we're gonna see another match down the line as that's a trademark heel winning routine right there. I can't rate this above the streetfight so I'll give it the same, just because I felt that the streetfight had more excitement. Styles to win the title sometime plz. ***1/2

WHOA! RVD losing thanks to Flair. Huge call there, will be interesting to see what you do with things now. RVD's defo coming back, but when and how will be something to see. The match itself was quite exciting as you'd hope for from a ladder match, and interference from both Hardy and Flair added to the story, though I feel that Wolfe maybe recovered a little too quickly after Hardy attacked him. Either way, you had some good spots with the Sunset Flip which is almost a staple in the ladder match these days. Well done and controversial main event to cap off a good show. ***3/4

First time I've read your work (unless you're the guy who used to be Rocker/Shocker and all the other name changes he went through, still not sure on this tbh ) and whilst it wasn't overly exciting, the PPV delivered a respectable show and you got better as the matches went on. Good job bud.

Impact Feedback


Just so weíre clear, this is for the July 15th episode of Impact. I had already started and then you posted the next show, so Iíll maybe get to that in a few days.

Your opening commentary was pretty good, running down the card for tonight. A few times though I felt as if you could have used a couple of full stops, instead of having them just talk nonstop for their whole block of dialogue.

LAX are on a huge roll right now, after picking up the victory at the ppv, and another one here now. One thing I just want to say is that I read your PPV analysis, and I can understand you wanting to use Team 3D as a team who just jobs to better teams, but you need to give them a win every now and then. They can only job so many times before they begin to lose credibility, which I believe they already are.

RVD appearing out of nowhere is something I like, but I think this could have been executed a lot better. He just lost his job on Sunday, if RVD appeared in a week or two, when you had played this off big time, it would have been perfect. Instead his already back in Impact, and itís just like ďoh okayĒ, not having the huge effect it should. I like how you tried to make Van Dam intense, but ďyouíve got some explaining to doĒ. Ugh, it just sounds so cheesy, not something somebody overly pissed off (in the wrestling business) would say. Obviously RVD was going to question Flair, but why the hell would he ask Wolfe what heís so happy about? Is RVD dumb? I thought it would be pretty obvious what heís happy about. Wolfeís reply was nice though, I must say. Flair was not too bad, bragging about money and what not, but RVDís crack about Wolfe having no balls was good. The rest of the bickering was alright, I thought you had the characters down pretty well from here. One last issue I could have is that usually when guys are being held back by security they need heaps, Van Dam getting stopped by two guys makes him seem a little lesser than anybody else that this has ever happened to. I like the angle youíre presenting with this Wolfe/RVD thing, and whilst the promo was solid at the end, I definitely think the execution of this promo, and RVD appearing could have been done a lot better.

Christopher Daniels interview was okay, short and sweet. You put over his arrogance nicely, and Iím excited to see who this former champion is by the way.

Iím not sure whatís going on with Eric Bischoff at the moment. Iím gathering that heís a tweener though, as he actually seemed to be reasoning with RVD, and whilst the spit is a huge thing, it seems as if Van Dam over exaggerated a little, tbh. Then the heel side of Bischoff seemed to come out, adding another enemy to Van Damís list.

The return of Petey Williams is a big deal. I donít mind the guy, and he adds another accomplished wrestler to your X Division. As for the match itself, it was smart giving Williams the win, the returning superstar always needs to look good, gaining them momentum in the process. You seem to have slacked off on your match recaps on weekly shows, and honestly, I donít mind that at all, however you didnít even refer to any tension between Daniels and Kaz, and after last night, I think thatís a huge mistake. Just by Daniels mouthing off, it seems like you might have Williams gun for him. I wouldnít mind that, but I really think Daniels/Kaz needs to be finished first.

ITíS A CODE! CHRIS JERICHO IS COMING TO TNA!

Honestly, no idea what the go is with the a video. Obviously more information will come to us in the coming weeks. At least youíve got me interested.

Rayne/Love is definitely a match I donít want to see, but you had to get the Knockouts on the show. I get the helmet was being used to hide Taraís identity at first, however a head butt with the helmet on would have owned. Despite that, it was a good attack, letting us know Tara is back.

Matt Morganís promo was alright, basically, as he said his victory speech. Not much to say, his cockiness towards the fans, whilst still saying what he had to say was pretty good. The promo was definitely solid, without being anything amazing. The TNA Television Championship? I actually like the idea, simply because the Global name has always sucked. Obviously Dinero wants a shot back, however the unprovoked attack on Neal, whilst showing some anger, definitely seemed a little heel like. Morgan running from Dinero? Heís supposed to be a monster, why would he bitch out for? Anyway, a decent enough way for things between these two to keep going.

I donít know who the All Night Express is, but I guess this is a pretty good debut for them.

In your commentary after the Morgan segment, Foley said Roode/Young was up next, so Iím guessing that was just an error there, as now apparently heís not here tonight. Stormís bit of this promo was nice, simply talking about Roode and what not. Harrisí was okay to, although after the arguments they had, the excuse that they patched things up simply isnít good enough, imo. A weak excuse for an epic return unfortunately. As for the fact they wonít be teaming together, itís a little disappointing, but Storm having a singles career is definitely something I donít mind. Honestly, this was probably your best promo of the night.

Hard Justice should be exciting. (y)

I canít even remember, or I simply just donít know what happened to Hulk Hogan. Morgan and Bischoffís segment was alright, Iím looking forward to seeing what Bischoffís punishment for Dinero is, as I am to seeing who Morgan faces next week.

Mr. Anderson being afraid of Joe is good, as you continue to build this along nicely, albeit rather slowly. I think the slow thing is a part of the beauty of it, makes it better. It was a bit weird how Anderson just got all happy though, Iíd definitely expect Flair to come up with a plan, but thatís me being very nitpicky.

The main event was alright. Not much to say, except the ending was nice with Anderson interfering, although due to the segment earlier, this was a little too predictable. I guess it does the job of keeping Anderson/Joe slow build, and Hardy/Anderson should be a good enough match at Hard Justice.

Overall, I had issues throughout, but I still felt as if the show was solid enough.
