The "CRUNK ROCK" Review:

~ Not surprising to see Rob Van Dam open the show. Good idea to kick off things with a promo from your newest acquisition. I was fully expecting an Anderson-Anderson interruption, so I was a bit thrown off by Desmond Wolfe's appearance. Wolfe had a good exchange with The Whole F'n Show, but Rob was all but guaranteed to get the upper hand here with it being his debut. At the end of this segment I don't really see why it was Wolfe to interrupt RVD and not Anderson; I guess you were just looking for a way to set up Wolfe/Sting next week.

~ The Beer Money/Lethal Consequences match was really all it needed to be, a momentum building win for the tag team champs. Team 3D going against GenMe should be good next week. GenMe probably should get the win, but I really don't see 3D beating the Guns tonight and losing again to Generation Me next week. It should be interesting.

~ The Bischoff/Rhino segment really didn't do much for me. It seemed really generic, which I could understand if writing for just Rhino, but nevertheless Rhino's got a number one contender's match next week, which is probably a win for the War Machine. Good idea to give him a win before his probable loss to Dinero at the PPV.

~ Good match between the former pals, Terry and Magnus. This match was a great way to continue the World Elite/Mornandez angle, plus adding Big Rob to the fray wasn't a bad idea. He still has unfinished business with the Brits, so it makes sense. I still have some doubt that Morgan and Hernandez are 100% on the same page though...

~ Strong promo from Daniels. He's a great choice for X-Division champ, and Ultimate X should definitely bring the awesome. Daniels was his arrogant, amazing self here. Very well written. Also lots of good action between Kendrick and Suicide. I think you made the right choice by putting Kendrick in. I don't think Kendrick's ever been in Ultimate X, so I'm interrested to see if you have any spots specifically made for him.

~ Wow. Intense segment with Hogan, Jarrett, and Foley. Foley and Jarrett are building strong cases against Hogan and Bischoff (I especially loved Foley's point of how he didn't hold a big press conference or wait 3 months to get involved in the company), and I'm very interested to see where you'll be taking this from here. Will there be a match? Will Jarrett and Foley make peace with Hogan? Will they expose him? Very interesting.

~ I thought Rhino's #1 Contender's match was next week? Pretty sure you just overlooked that, it happens. Solid win for Rhino, who didn't get a chance to rest! Everything Pope does is gold, and I like that you fit him into the show even if it was just for a post match beatdown.

~ I enjoyed the Angle/Joe segment, but I'm not sure how I feel about a ladder match between the two. TNA is often criticised for giving too much away on free TV, but with TNA having just moved to Mondays in your thread I can see why you're willing to put on a match like this. I was wondering why Angle wasn't on the show last week, and we haven't heard from Flair since he wasn't allowed into the PPV. Perhaps he'll show up next week to screw Angle out of the #1 contenders spot. Anyway, solid promo, everyone was well written and I'm excited to see where it leads.

~ Strong win for the Guns, putting them over 3D really makes them seems like a big deal, not just in the tag team division, but as a whole. I really like the roll they've been on lately, and I hope it leads to something great.

~ Hall and Nash's backstage brawl didn't do much for me, but it was quick and painless and got their feud on tv. I can only imagine how slow they would move if this brawl was happening IRL.

~ I like how you've built the main event all through the night. You really know how to make a main event feel like a main event. Honestly I don't know what's gonna happen here. Anderson needs a win badly, but RVD shouldn't lose his debut either. Sting's bat coming down instead of Anderson's microphone was genious! Very creative, I loved that! Really strong main event, with Anderson still looking great in loss. The Sting/Anderson feud is really shaping up nicely, and RVD gets a solid first win. Wolfe sounds like he has something in store for Rob, but he'll have the Stinger to deal with first.

OVERALL: This show wasn't quite up there with the rest. The good parts were definitley the matches. They were all solid and well written, and again I love how the main event felt like a main event. The promos and backstage segments were hit (Daniels, Joe/Angle, Foly/Jarrett/Hogan) and miss (Nash/Hall, Rhino). I'm not sure where you're going with Anderson and Wolfe as they seem to have become jobbers to the main event babyfaces, and I really don't see Wolfe picking up a win over Sting next week, or Anderson in a feud with him for that matter. Don't get me wrong, this was a good show, just not up to par with some of your other work. 7/10

TNA Monday Night Impact Preview - March 1, 2010

The first show of March will be one hell of a ride as Monday Night Impact returns to Spike for two hours of the best professional wrestling you can see anywhere!

Not one, but two huge main events are scheduled for this Monday's show, with Desmond Wolfe facing 'The Icon' Sting for the first time ever, and Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe re-kindling their epic rivalry from years ago for one night only, in a Ladder match! Joe's Feast or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match anytime, anywhere will be up for grabs in the death-defying Ladder match, and both men have stated that, should they win, they will use the opportunity against 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles at Destination X! Wolfe seemingly kick-started a rivalry with Rob Van Dam last week, and Sting is having issues with Anderson, so will we see any developments, especially as we are scheduled to hear from Anderson?

That's not all though, because The Motor City Machine Guns' Alex Shelley will face 'The King Of The Mountain' Jeff Jarrett! Jarrett and Mick Foley returned to TNA last week and confronted Hulk Hogan, but can Jarrett shake off the ring rust, regain his composure and defeat Shelley?

We will also hear from the TNA Global Champion 'The Pope' D'Angelo who will defend his gold against 'The War Machine' Rhino on March 21st at Destination X after he defeated Abyss last week to earn the opportunity. What will Dinero have to say to his Destination X opponent?

'The Fallen Angel' Christopher Daniels will defend his TNA X Division Championship against five other competitors in an Ultimate X Match at Destination X, one of them being Brian Kendrick who qualified last week. This week, Kazarian takes on Kiyoshi with the winner filling the third slot in Ultimate X!

Also this week, the #1 contenders to the TNA World Tag Team Championships Generation Me face the veterans Team 3D, and Doug Williams takes on 'Super Mex' Hernandez! To see all of this and more, tune into Spike at 8/7CT this Monday night to watch Impact!

I hope to see Desmond Wofle get the pinfall over the Icon Sting and have him go over into the upper mid card, or further up then he already is. Kennedy or RVD may interfere into the matchup and cost him the victory. With may result in a tag team street fight at the PPV - Wofle and Anderson vs. RVD and Sting.

Joe and Angle will steal the show and I see Joe winning and keeping his briefcase, there is a reason why you gave it to him in the first place. Angle will put up a good effort and will probably be award winning candidate for this match.

Alex Shelly will win, Jarrett will be jumped during the match either by Hogan or by one of his cronies continuing their feud.

Please have Kaz go over Kiyoshi, he will make the D-X match so much more enjoyable.

Generation ME to go over 3D please.

Great card, Show looks to be PPV worthy even.

I am sure you aren't going to let down.

TNA Impact – March 1, 2010 – Orlando, Florida


Impact kicks off with a video package recounting the events of last week’s episode of Impact; Rob Van Dam opening the show and being interrupted by Desmond Wolfe, Van Dam going after Wolfe and making him quickly leave the ring, Sting’s baseball bat coming down from the ceiling instead of Mr. Anderson’s microphone, RVD defeating Anderson after the lights went out and Sting’s music played and Wolfe attacking Van Dam after the match, getting his revenge following their altercation at the beginning of the night.

Then, the opening credits play and ‘Change Me’ blares out as the camera cuts into the Impact Zone and the stage becomes veiled by pyrotechnics and fireworks. The camera then pans the audience in the Arena who are holding up signs of all shapes, sizes and colours, before cutting to ringside where Mike Tenay and Taz are sat, ready to welcome us to the show.

Tenay: Tonight, Kurt Angle faces Samoa Joe in a Ladder match with Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match anytime, anywhere, and for the first time ever, the brash and cocky Desmond Wolfe squares off against ‘The Icon’ Sting! I’m Mike Tenay alongside Taz and partner, you can just sense that tonight is going to be historic!

Taz: Angle and Joe have had epic battles in the past, but they have never crossed paths in a Ladder match, and as for Desmond Wolfe versus Sting, just mentioning Sting’s name gets you fired up for that match, but imagine if Wolfe could defeat ‘The Icon’; his name would be cemented in TNA history forever!

Tenay: Also tonight, Jeff Jarrett returns to the ring, as he goes one-on-one with the Motor City Machine Guns’ Alex Shelley, and don’t forget, Mick Foley will be in action next week against Shelley’s tag team partner, Chris Sabin!

Taz: I can’t wait, Professor, we don’t know what shape Jeff Jarrett’s gonna be in and how fresh he’ll be, but no matter what, you can guarantee that Alex Shelley will take the TNA founder to the limit.

Tenay: Plus, Kazarian faces Kiyoshi in an Ultimate X Qualifying Match for Destination X, Doug Williams squares off against ‘Super Mex’ Hernandez, and Generation Me face Team 3D, as they prepare for their match against Beer Money for the TNA World Tag Team Championships at Destination X!

Then, ‘Mic Checked’ blares out and the lights go out in the Impact Zone, as the crowd, knowing who is coming, begin to boo. Then, a large spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there, not with the usual smirk he has on his face. Wearing a charcoal blazer, a ‘Pro Wrestling is real, people are fake’ t-shirt, jeans and sneakers, Anderson saunters down the ramp and enters the ring, looking around the audience before reaching up and receiving his microphone.

Anderson: Oh, look ... a microphone. Now you know, Stinger, not to mess around with me.

Heat for Anderson, who then turns to the camera to look directly into it.

Anderson: Y’know, I would ask you why you’re obsessed with me, but then again I don’t need to, because you’re just like all of these people, and they’re all jealous of me.

The crowd boo in disagreement.

Anderson: See? See that? Pure jealousy, don’t ya’ think? They cheer you because they feel sorry for you, Stinger, I didn’t think it was remotely possible but ... you’re below them.

More heat for Anderson.

Anderson: Nice guys always finish last, so it’s no wonder I’m at the top of this company ... and you’re at the bottom, because you care more about pleasing people you don’t even know than succeeding, whereas I’m a selfish prick and I’m damn frickin’ proud of it.

KA momentarily smirks at the camera, before continuing.

Anderson: You think you can take me down there with ya’, well it ain’t gonna work. You’re pathetic enough to get involved in my business, and you cost me my match against Rob Van Dam last week.

Cheers from the crowd, happy that RVD defeated him.

Anderson: You’re an old man, Stinger, and that’s not gonna change. Followin’ me around, costing me matches, making a baseball bat come down in front of me, it’s not gonna change the fact that I am better than you in every single way. I mean, you probably weren’t even good at baseball, for cryin’ out loud! But, unsurprisingly, I was awesome at baseball, I can use a baseball bat pretty damn well, and not just to play ... ‘cause I can use it to beat the holy living hell out of you as well.

More heat for Anderson.

Anderson: I said to you last week that if you messed with me, you would be signin’ your career away with your own blood, and that was even before you cost me my match. So if you even dare come within a few feet of me, I will-

Anderson is cut off when ‘Slay Me’ blares out and the crowd go wild, as Sting walks out! Ken shakes his head as Sting, wearing a black trenchcoat over his ring gear, makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring, taking a microphone.

Sting: You will ... what?

Anderson, shaking, looks very angry with ‘The Icon’.

Anderson: You wanna make jokes, Sting?! YOU WANNA MAKE JOKES?! Do you know who the hell I am?! Y’know what, you don’t deserve an answer right now, you’ll get your answer when I kick your ass and there’ll be nothing you can do ‘cause afterwards you won’t be able to stand up out of your God damn wheelchair!

Lots of heat for Anderson, who is bright red in the face.

Sting: Yeah, I do know who you are, Ken, and I can safely say that you’re one of the most stuck-up assholes I’ve ever seen who can’t keep his mouth shut for one second.

Big pop for Sting, as Anderson sarcastically laughs at him before reverting to a solemn expression.

Anderson: Haha, very funny, Stinger, you want a cookie for that? Jokes won’t get ya’ anywhere, ‘cause you’re only makin’ me even more pissed off, so in the long run, every time you try to impress these people, your fate slips even further into my hands. I can make jokes, I can talk as much as I want, ‘cause I talk loud but believe me, I hit a whole lot harder so if you don’t like the sound of my voice ... then you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Sting: Really? ‘Cause Ken, I’m dying to find out. I’ve been watching you for a long time, and not once have I believed that you’re in my league. I can see that just as I say that, you clench your fists, you grit your teeth and you wanna get your hands on me but there’s not a single hair sticking up on the back of my neck when I see that.

More cheers for Sting.

Sting: If you actually do talk loud and hit harder, then I dare you to make a believer out of me, and I’m gonna give you that chance, Ken. Destination X...

Big pop in the crowd as soon as Sting mentions Destination X.

Sting: March 21st ... how about you put your money where your mouth is and face me one-on-one?

The crowd go wild, they would love to see that match.

Anderson: Do you really wanna do that, Stinger?

Sting: You bet I do.

Anderson slowly nods his head, before giving Sting his answer.

Anderson: Then you’re on.

Big pop in the crowd, and a content Sting smirks, before extending his hand to Anderson! KA looks around the Impact Zone, before saying...

Anderson: A handshake?

Anderson shakes his head at Sting, who then withdraws it.

Anderson: I’m not gonna shake your hand. Besides, you’re so damn old, if I shook it, then your hand would crumble into little pieces. But mark my words, Stinger, if you think that sounds bad ... then at Destination X ... your ENTIRE – BODY ... your CAREER ... your LIFE ... will all crumble ... into ... pieces.

Heat for Anderson, who then whispers into the microphone...

Anderson: (Whispering) Pieces.

After those chilling parting words, ‘Mic Checked’ blares out and Anderson lets go of his microphone, before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp, not taking his eyes off Sting, with their date at Destination X now set in stone.

Tenay: It looks like at Destination X, we’re gonna see Mr. Anderson versus ‘The Icon’ Sting! What a match that’s gonna be, and if that confrontation between those two men there is anything to go by, then it’s gonna be one hell of a ride on March 21st when Anderson and Sting square off!

Taz: It sure is, a legend like Sting versus a- Whoa, whoa, wait, what’s going on?

Taz stops, when Desmond Wolfe, Sting’s opponent later on tonight, jumps over the security rail and enters the ring as ‘The Icon’ is watching Anderson leave, and Wolfe attacks Sting from behind! The crowd boo as Wolfe floors Sting and begins to stomp away at him, trying to gain an advantage going into their match later on tonight, but then the crowd go nuts as ‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out and Rob Van Dam runs out, sprinting to the ring and trading blows with Wolfe! They exchange right hands, and RVD gains the upper hand, but before he can capitalize on it, Wolfe rolls under the ropes and out of the ring, staggering up the ramp!

The crowd boo Wolfe’s cowardly actions as he soon disappears backstage, but they cheer again as ‘Whole F’n Show’ plays again and Rob Van Dam performs his ‘RVD’ pose whilst directly looking at Wolfe, before Van Dam helps Sting to his feet and they pat each other on the back.

Tenay: Desmond Wolfe tried to gain an advantage going into his and Sting’s match later tonight, but Wolfe’s rival Rob Van Dam took exception to that and sent Wolfe running!

Taz: It doesn’t look like Sting was hurt too badly in that short space of time, so it looks like we’re still on course for an awesome main event, Professor!

Tenay: But speaking of main events, don’t forget that tonight, it’s Kurt Angle versus Samoa Joe in a Ladder match with Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match anytime, anywhere, hanging in the balance!

It All Begins – Kurt Angle debuts in TNA on October 19th 2006, and confronts Samoa Joe.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, Kiyoshi is standing in the ring as ‘We Are World Elite’ fades out on the P.A. system.

Then, ‘Kaz’ blares out to a pop from the crowd and Kazarian walks out, raising one hand in the air as he makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring, climbing to the second rope in the corner of the ring and posing for the fans once more before climbing back down and preparing for this match.

Ultimate X Qualifying Match
Kazarian Vs. Kiyoshi
Whoever wins this match will join the X Division Champion Christopher Daniels, Brian Kendrick and three other undetermined competitors in the Ultimate X Match for the X Division Championship next month at Destination X, but almost from as soon as the bell rings for this contest to begin, the winner is obvious. Kiyoshi is able to get in some offence at the beginning of the match, like most do, but after that it’s pretty much all Kazarian. With a few exceptions of some counters from Kiyoshi and some punches, Kaz dominates his opponent and when Kiyoshi is on the top rope, ‘The Coolest Man In Wrestling’ joins him up there, and hits ‘The Japanese Lightning’ with the Flux Capacitor from the top rope, then making the cover and picking up the victory, advancing to the Ultimate X Match at Destination X on March 21st!
Winner – Kazarian @ 3:49

‘Kaz’ plays and Kazarian gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee to a pop from the crowd. Having secured his entry in the Ultimate X Match at Destination X, Kazarian climbs to the second rope and raises one hand aloft, then motioning around his waist that he will become X Division Champion, but speaking of the X Division Championship, Christopher Daniels then walks out onto the stage, holding his title over his shoulder, and he and Kazarian have a heated long-distance stare-down.

Tenay: We now know two of the five men that will challenge Christopher Daniels for the X Division Championship at Destination X; Brian Kendrick qualified last week, and Kazarian has secured his place in the Ultimate X match this week by defeating Kiyoshi!

Taz: Anybody could win it, Professor, and we’ve got another qualifying match next week with Amazing Red facing Homicide, so it’s shaping up to be one hell of an Ultimate X match on March 21st, I can guarantee that!

Then, Kiyoshi leaves the ring, and soon after, ‘Down In The Catacombs’ plays and Abyss walks out, to a pop from the crowd. Abyss makes a pose as pyrotechnics explode from the stage and ‘The Monster’ proceeds down the ramp, entering the ring and taking a microphone.

Abyss: I’m not somebody that talks a lot ... but Mick Foley...

Mixed reaction at the mention of Foley.

Abyss: Mick, I want you to come out here right now!

After a few moments of silence, ‘Chic Chic Bang Bang’ blares out and Mick Foley walks out, wearing his signature scruffy clothes as he walks down the ramp, entering the ring and taking a microphone, looking confused as to why Abyss has called him out.

Foley: Can I help you, Chris?

Breathing heavily, ‘The Monster’ replies.

Abyss: No, Mick ... but you definitely need help.

Foley looks perplexed after Abyss’ answer.

Foley: What are you talking about?

Abyss: You know what I’m talking about, Mick ... what’s happened to you? Before Hogan came in, you loved TNA, you were an inspiration to all of us, especially me, and now Hogan’s here you wanna leave.

Foley: You just answered your own question, Chris ... Hogan. He’s ruined everything. I used to love professional wrestling, I used to love all of the guys in the locker room, but now Hulk’s come in and he’s ripped my heart out, y’know?

Abyss: But Mick, Hulk’s a great person, why don’t you just give him a chance-

Mick interrupts Abyss.

Foley: No! You’re wrong, Chris! You don’t know anything about Hulk Hogan!

Mixed reaction for Foley.

Foley: Hulk is not a ‘great person’ like you say he is, in fact, he’s far from it. I’ve given him plenty of chances, and a whole lot of other people have too, but not once has he cleaned up his act! So until I’m proven wrong ... Hogan hasn’t changed a single bit since he came to TNA.

Heat for Foley, who shakes his head in response to his ovation.

Foley: But do you know who has changed, Chris? You have.

Abyss looks surprised at Foley.

Foley: You used to live up to your moniker; you were ‘The Monster’. Whenever you walked into that locker room backstage, the other guys had their backs up against the wall, because they knew what you were capable of, they knew that you could kick all of their asses!

The crowd cheer in agreement.

Foley: But now, all I see is just another ordinary guy hidden behind a mask, with nothing whatsoever to make me say that you were one of the baddest and most violent son-of-a-bitches to ever set foot in TNA! THAT’S WHAT YOU USED TO BE, CHRIS!!

Mick calms himself down, before continuing.

Foley: If you don’t believe me and you think that I’m only saying this because I have a problem with Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff, then you’re wrong. I was on the phone to your father, James Mitchell, the other day, and if he was here right now, my exact words would have come out of his mouth too.

Abyss appears to think about Foley’s words, as he continues.

Foley: Believe me, Chris, I don’t want your career to go up in flames, but if you keep going the way you’re going, then it will, and it will be an absolute waste because if you look deep inside yourself and find the Abyss that was TNA World Heavyweight Champion ... then you can be a World Champion again.

The crowd cheer, liking that idea.

Foley: Hell, you could help me and Jeff Jarrett drive Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff out of TNA because if the guys in the locker room are afraid of you ... then you can bet your ass they won’t dare move a single muscle in their body when they’re looking at you. So c’mon, Chris ... whaddya’ say?

Foley extends his hand to Abyss and ‘The Monster’ looks around the crowd, who are booing Foley and chanting at Abyss ‘Don’t sell out!’, and he puts his hand forward, about to shake hands with ‘The Hardcore Legend’ ... but he pulls away at the last second and then leaves the ring, to a mixed reaction from the crowd. Keeping his head down, Abyss walks up the ramp and disappears behind the curtain, as Foley watches on, looking down at the hand he extended and shaking his head in disappointment.

Tenay: An interesting turn of events there to say the least, Mick Foley tried to persuade his friend ‘The Monster’ Abyss to help him and Jeff Jarrett drive Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff out of TNA, but Abyss simply walked away.

Taz: I think Abyss made the right choice, Mike.

Tenay: Speaking of Jeff Jarrett, the TNA founder is in action tonight against Alex Shelley of the Motor City Machine Guns, and don’t forget, Desmond Wolfe faces Sting and Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe go one-on-one in a Ladder match for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase!

Joe’s Revenge – Kurt Angle wins his first match in TNA by making Abyss submit to the Ankle lock, but Angle is attacked by Samoa Joe after the match.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Invasion’ plays and Doug Williams walks out, accompanied by his tag team partner Brutus Magnus and his World Elite superior, Eric Young. The trio walk down the ramp and enter the ring, as Magnus and Williams pose and Young simply stands there, smirking.

Then, ‘Te Gusta O No!’ blares out to a pop from the crowd and Hernandez walks out, with Matt Morgan and Rob Terry at his left and right side respectively. Hernandez punches the air multiple times as his pyro explodes, and he, Morgan and Terry walk down the ramp, entering the ring as ‘Super Mex’ climbs to the second rope to pose for the fans, Morgan raises one hand in the air and Terry flexes his bulging muscles.

Before the match can begin, though, ‘White Train’ plays and Eric Bischoff walks out to a mixed reaction from the crowd. All six men are surprised to see Bischoff, and Eric has a slight smirk on his face.

Bischoff: As ‘nice’ as it is to see all of you in and around that ring ... it is almost literally begging for something to happen, and I don’t want to have to deal with that, which is why I have taken the liberty of banning Matt Morgan, Rob Terry, Brutus Magnus and Eric Young from ringside! Good luck, guys.

‘White Train’ blares out again and Bischoff walks away, soon followed by the four men who have been banned from ringside for this match.

Singles Match
Doug Williams Vs. Hernandez
Brutus Magnus and Eric Young, on Doug Williams’ side, and Matt Morgan and Rob Terry, on Hernandez’s side, were all banned from ringside by Eric Bischoff for this match, but it doesn’t have an effect on the quality of this match, which is a good quality, or on the competitors competing in it. This is a very evenly-matched contest, with Williams bringing his outstanding technical ability and ‘Super Mex’ bringing his immense strength and size to the table in this bout. Both Williams and Hernandez get a lot of offence in, with Hernandez at some points manhandling the Englishman, but eventually Doug uses his intellect to bend the rules, as he un-laces his boot whilst on the floor and Hernandez goes to grab Williams’ leg but he takes his boot off and he holds it up in front of the referee, who takes a while to dispose of it, and as he does, Williams low-blows Hernandez and rolls him up with a small package, picking up the victory!
Winner – Doug Williams @ 5:03

‘Invasion’ blares out and Doug Williams gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee and he immediately leaves the ring, collecting his boot which is lying on the floor and jogging up the ramp with one hand raised in the air following his questionable victory.

Tenay: Doug Williams had to bend the rules, but in the end he did defeat Hernandez!

Taz: Hey, give him a break, Professor; rules are like bones, they’re made to be broken, and personally I’m glad Doug Williams knows that, everybody should.

Tenay: Coming up next, Generation Me face Team 3D, and still to come tonight on Impact, Desmond Wolfe faces Sting and Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle square off in a Ladder match for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase!

The Streak Is Over – Kurt Angle defeats Samoa Joe at Genesis 2006, ending Joe’s undefeated streak in TNA.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘My Generation’ plays and Generation Me make their way out to a pop from the crowd. Jeremy and Max Buck, wearing identical black and green attire, sprint down the ramp and enter the ring, both climbing to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring and posing for the fans before climbing back down and waiting for their opponents to arrive.

Then, ‘Watch Out, Watch Out’ blares out to a mixed reaction, and Team 3D walk out, both posing for the crowd before walking down the ramp and entering the ring, looking to get straight down to business in this match.

Tag Team Match
Generation Me Vs. Team 3D
This match doesn’t last very long, but during the time it does last, it is very much evenly-matched between the two contrasting teams of the high-flying Generation Me and the no-nonsense hardcore extremists Team 3D. Brother Ray and Brother Devon manage to hit most of their signature moves apart from the 3D itself which would most likely put Jeremy or Max Buck away, but Generation Me manage to avoid it on more than one occasion, and they take control towards the end of the match, hitting Brother Devon with their signature double-team finishing manoeuvre, More Bang For Your Buck, and making the cover, defeating the most decorated tag team in professional wrestling history!
Winners – Generation Me @ 4:22

‘My Generation’ blares out to a pop from the crowd and Jeremy Buck, who made the cover to win the match, gets to his feet and he and his brother Max have their hands raised by the referee, having defeated the veterans Team 3D. Max and Jeremy embrace and raise each other’s hands in the air, but then ‘Take A Fall’ plays and the TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money, who will defend their titles against Generation Me at Destination X, walk out, holding their titles over their shoulders. James Storm and Robert Roode walk down the ramp and enter the ring, taking microphones and confronting their future opponents.

Roode: Congratulations, guys, really. Team 3D, they’re arguably the greatest tag team of all time and you just beat them.

Pop for Generation Me, who appreciate their ovation and wave at the fans.

Roode: But ... before you get too giddy over it, let me just remind you that they’re past their prime, you could say they’re over the hill, and anybody can beat them, hell, I can barely count on two hands the amount of times we’ve whooped their asses in this very ring.

Mixed reaction for Roode.

Roode: You two still need to make a name for yourselves, but you’ve got the biggest chance of your lives to do that when you face us for these TNA World Tag Team Championships on March 21st at Destination X.

Storm: But, uh ... if ya’ wanna get on your way to makin’ a name for yourselves, then I think y’all should change your ring attire so ya’ don’t look like two cheap Hardy Boyz rip-offs.

A lot of ‘Ohhh’s amongst the crowd after that statement.

Storm: So if ya’ don’t bring your A-game to Destination X ... then sorry ‘bout your damn luck.

‘Take A Fall’ blares out and James Storm and Robert Roode leave the ring to a pop from the crowd, walking up the ramp as Generation Me watch them depart and Max and Jeremy talk to each other quietly although it isn’t known what they’re discussing.

The camera then cuts backstage, where the Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero is walking down a corridor presumably on his way to the ring.

Tenay: Beer Money with some strong words for Generation Me, but there’s the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero on his way to the ring to address the TNA fans, and he’ll have some strong words for the man who will challenge him for his title at Destination X, ‘The War Machine’ Rhino! We’re now entering the second hour of Impact, so make sure you stay with us when we return!


*Commercial Break*



Hard Luck, Joe – Kurt Angle defeats Samoa Joe at Hard Justice 2007 to retain the TNA World Heavyweight and IWGP Third Belt Championships and win the TNA X Division and TNA World Tag Team Championships.

Back on Impact, now in the second hour, ‘Catholi-Funk’ blares out and the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero walks out to a big pop from the crowd. Wearing shades, a face-mask and a long black trench-coat over his usual ring gear, the ultra-charismatic Dinero saunters down the ramp and pauses to outstretch his arms and look to the heavens as money falls from the ceiling like confetti and Dinero enters the ring, taking a microphone and waiting for a ‘Pope is Pimpin’!’ chant to quieten before speaking.

Dinero: Pope hasn’t had the opportunity to address his congregation in a while and he apologizes for that, but Pope’s been a little busy lately and he’s had some business to take care of concerning the man they call ‘The War Machine’ ... Hippo.

The fans laugh after Pope calls Rhino ‘Hippo’.

Dinero: What, you don’t know Hippo? Oh, believe me you will, ‘cause Hippo’s gonna be challenging Pope for this Global Championship at Destination X on March 21st!

Dinero unstraps his title from around his waist and holds it up to cheers from the crowd.

Dinero: And at Destination X, you’ll know Hippo quite simply as the guy who got his ass kicked all over the Arena and to the streets of Harlem and back by Pope!

Pop for Pope, who nods in agreement before continuing.

Dinero: It might be a dirty job, but Pope’s ready for that, and Hippo damn sure is ‘cause he loves to roll around in mud and after the match his Momma can lick all of the mud off his body, even down in the parts where nobody dares go if you know what Pope’s sayin’.

More laughter in the crowd.

Dinero: Hippo, Pope knows what you’ve done in the past ... you’ve put people through tables, you’ve shortened many careers including your own and you have been in some of the most brutal matches known to mankind ... but no matter what you’ve done in the past, you will never ... ever ... be the charismatic, pimptacular, hand-clapping, foot-tapping, pimp-slapping, blinging attire, always on fire, TNA Global Champion that is ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo ... Dinero!

Big pop for Dinero, who regains his composure before continuing to talk.

Dinero: But hey, that’s just Pope’s opinion so you don’t have to believe that if you don’t want to, but Hippo, you better believe that Pope’s congregation know what’s gonna go down at Destination X!

Cheap pop for Pope.

Dinero: So ... if Pope’s gonna defeat Hippo at Destination X and retain the TNA Global Championship, can Pope please get an Amen?

The crowd respond with a reverberating ‘Amen’ and Dinero then turns to directly face the camera.

Dinero: That’s right. So Hippo ... Pope wants you to get down on your knees ... clasp your hands together, ‘cause Pope knows what you’ll instinctively do when you get on your knees...

The crowd laugh at Pope’s remarks.

Dinero: Close your eyes and say all the prayers your Momma taught you, ‘cause you’re gonna need a miracle to even come close to out-performing Pope at Destination X, and-

However, Dinero cannot continue as, speak of the devil, Rhino, who has run down the ramp and entered the ring, slams a steel chair over the back of ‘The Pope’! Dinero goes straight down and Rhino begins to stomp away at Dinero and he then gets him to his feet. Dinero tries to fight back and gets cheered by the crowd, but ‘The Man-Beast’ wrenches Dinero’s arm and pulls him in, almost taking the TNA Global Champion’s head off with a thunderous clothesline!

Rhino then momentarily leaves the ring and lifts up the ring apron, searching under the ring ... and revealing a table! Rhino lifts it up and looks at the table with a sadistic grin on his face before sliding the table into the ring and re-entering, setting the table up in the corner of the ring and waiting for Dinero to get up. Eventually, ‘The Pope’ gets up, standing in between Rhino and the table in the corner, and that’s the last place he wants to be, because Rhino runs straight at Dinero, and sends Dinero crashing through the table with a Gore!

Taz: GORE! GORE! GORE, BABY, GORE!

Buried in the shards of the broken table is the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero and Rhino gets to his feet, taking Dinero’s Global Championship from the floor and holding it aloft as if it was his, which it could be at Destination X, to a lot of heat from the crowd, before dropping it and walking over to the motionless Dinero, shouting into his face ‘Who’s hippo now?!’ before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp as ‘War Machine’ blares out.

Taz: Man, oh man, that was one hell of a gore! I love Pope, I really do, but Rhino just took his ass out big time! If that ain’t a potential sign of things to come at Destination X on March 21st when these two guys meet, then I don’t know what is, Professor!

Tenay: Rhino is a sick, vile man and for anybody who didn’t already know that, he just showed the entire world his true colours.

Paramedics rush to the ring, some of them carrying a stretcher, and they check on D’Angelo Dinero, who hasn’t moved a muscle since that Gore from Rhino. They strap Dinero to the stretcher and take him out of the ring, but then Rhino, who is standing on the stage, turns around and sees ‘The Pope’ ... going back for more! The crowd boo Rhino as he storms downt he ramp and yells at the paramedics who quickly get out of the way as he grabs the stretcher from the floor which Dinero is strapped to ... and slams the stretcher with Dinero strapped to it against the steel ring-post! The stretcher falls to the concrete floor and ‘The Pope’ is well and truly out cold now if he wasn’t already as Rhino stands over him and raises both hands above his head before walking away, ignoring the boos of the crowd.

Tenay: I don’t sense much enthusiasm in your voice now, Taz.

Taz: I know, Mike, but that ... that’s just crossing the line. I know that’s TNA’s tagline and all but I’m sure it’s meant in jest, not so that guys do stuff like that. I’ve known Rhino for a long time, and I’ve seen the good and bad sides of him plenty of times, he’s not always straight in the head, but he’s gone way too far tonight. I just hope Pope’s alright down there ... I’m gonna go check on him.

Taz stands up, removes his headset, and leaves the announce table, walking down the ramp towards D’Angelo Dinero, but Rhino steps in his way! Taz says to Rhino, ‘What the hell are you doin’, Terry? Get the hell outta’ here!’ but that doesn’t do anything, as Rhino grabs Taz by the shirt collar and shoves him away! There are a lot of ‘Ohhh’s in the crowd after that and Taz doesn’t back down, walking back towards Rhino and shouting at him ‘Hey, don’t pull that crap with me, Terry, I’m warnin’ you, al..’ but Taz isn’t able to finish ... as Rhino nails Taz with a Gore!!!

Taz is laid out on the ramp as Rhino stands over him with a smirk on his face as he pulls Taz back up by his shirt collar and pushes him down the steps that lead off the ramp and down to the concrete floor in front of the announce table where Taz should be right now. Rhino drags Taz over to the announce table and Mike Tenay quickly removes his headset and takes several steps back as Rhino removes the TV monitor from the announce table, and hits Taz in the skull with the TV monitor! This is getting plain distasteful now, and Taz is laid out on the concrete floor as D’Angelo Dinero is taken backstage on the stretcher and then more paramedics emerge, rushing over to where Taz is, and Taz is now bleeding from the head, as he is strapped to a stretcher and taken away as security guards get in the maniacal Rhino’s way.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, the camera has a close-up of Mike Tenay sat at the announce table.

Tenay: Welcome back to Impact, everybody, as you saw before the commercial break my broadcast partner Taz was viciously attacked by Rhino, he will not be announcing for the remainder of tonight so joining me as his replacement is a familiar face to this announce table, Don West.

The camera pans out to show West smiling and waving at the camera.

West: Great to be here, Mike, I’m still a bit pissed off that I’m not the permanent colour comentator for Impact especially now that we’re on Monday nights and I’m gonna talk to Hogan and Bischoff about that, but let’s get down to business!

Then, ‘Motorcity’ blares out to a big pop from the crowd and Alex Shelley walks out, accompanied by his Motor City Machine Guns tag team partner, Chris Sabin. Both men stand back-to-back and point to the ring before sprinting down the ramp, gesturing to the camera and entering the squared circle, climbing to the second rope in opposite corners and posing for the fans before climbing back down.

‘My World’ plays to a mixed reaction from the crowd and Jeff Jarrett walks out, wearing a white and silver sleeveless jacket over his ring-gear and holding a signature guitar in his hand. Jarrett walks down the ramp and pauses to raise his hands and guitar in the air as his pyrotechnic goes off before continuing to walk down the ramp and entering the ring, getting ready for this match to get underway.

Singles Match
Alex Shelley Vs. Jeff Jarrett
The bell rings and Alex Shelley and Jeff Jarrett shake hands in the middle of the ring, then circling each other around the squared circle for several moments before locking up. Jarrett gets Shelley in a standing headlock and Alex tries to push him away but instead Jeff floors him with a headlock takedown and keeps Shelley in the headlock. Alex manages to get to his feet and he fights his way out of the headlock after some elbows to Jarrett’s mid-section and he then wrenches Jeff’s arm, making his way into the corner of the ring and running up the turnbuckles to the top rope, then backflipping off and hitting Jarrett with a spectacular reverse DDT! Shelley makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Jarrett kicks out. Shelley gets to his feet and runs off the ropes, looking like he’s going to go for an elbow drop but before he can, the founder of TNA Wrestling takes Shelley down with a drop toe hold and he then gets up, stomping away at Shelley and getting him to his feet, lifting Alex up and planting him with a scoop slam before running off the ropes and hitting Shelley with a knee drop. Jarrett then makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Shelley gets the shoulder up. Jarrett gets Shelley to his feet and Irish whips him against the ropes, bending over to go for a back body drop but Alex counters with a sunset flip roll-up, 1...... 2...... Jarrett reverses it and pins Shelley’s shoulders to the mat, hooking his legs, 1...... 2...... Shelley reverses it and pins Jarrett the same way he did a few moments ago, 1...... 2...... Jarrett rolls backwards, escaping from the pin!

Half-way through the match, it is still even between Alex Shelley and Jeff Jarrett, but Jarrett has just begun to gain the upper hand after pushing Shelley off the top rope and down to the concrete floor on the outside of the ring when Shelley attempted a Sliced Bread #2. With Alex lying on the floor holding his right shoulder, he gradually struggles to his feet and Jarrett climbs out onto the ring apron, jumping off and hitting Shelley with an elbow drop to the head! Shelley goes back down and Jarrett then rolls into the ring before rolling back out again to break the count and Jarrett grabs Shelley’s legs, catapulting Shelley face-first into the steel ring-post! Shelley’s skull bounces off the steel and he goes down as Jarrett looks down at him and Chris Sabin checks on him before ‘The King Of The Mountain’ re-enters the ring, thinking that Shelley won’t be able to make it back into the ring before the ten-count, and who can blame him? Shelley hasn’t moved since being catapulted into the steel ring-post, and Alex only begins to get to his feet on the count of seven, but Shelley is able to get back into the ring just before the count of ten! The crowd cheer for Shelley as he lies on the canvas, and an optimistic Jarrett immediately makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Shelley gets the shoulder up!

The ending to this match comes when Alex Shelley has taken Jeff Jarrett down to the canvas with a clothesline and Shelley, who is beginning to show signs of tiredness, climbs to the top rope as he waits for Jarrett to get to his feet. Jarrett gets up, and Shelley goes for a dropkick from the top rope, but Jarrett smartly moves out of the way as Shelley crashes and burns on the canvas, failing to hit Jarrett! ‘The King Of The Mountain’ slowly gets to his feet and eventually gets Shelley up, wrenching his arm and going for the Stroke, but Shelley fights out of it, and with his last bit of energy, he gets Jarrett in a dragon sleeper position, and hits Jarrett with the Shellshock! Shelley makes the cover, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner – Alex Shelley @ 8:38

‘Motorcity’ plays and Alex Shelley gets to his feet as he has his hand raised by the referee, as Chris Sabin enters the ring and raises Shelley’s other hand. The duo climb to the second rope in opposite corners of the ring and pose for the crowd before leaving and walking up the ramp, as Jeff Jarrett gets to his feet, disappointed that he lost the match, but he gets applause from the crowd after his effort.

Tenay: A huge victory for Alex Shelley, defeating the founder of TNA Wrestling, Jeff Jarrett!

West: I knew this day would come when Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin would be major players here in TNA, and not only have they beaten The Band, but Shelley has now beaten Jeff Jarrett! But, can Sabin impress next week against Mick Foley?

Then, ‘Rockhouse’ blares out and Hulk Hogan walks out, to a big pop from the crowd. Wearing a black bandana, shades, and a black vest and pants, Hogan makes his way down the ramp holding a microphone in his hand, as he picks up Jarrett’s guitar and enters the ring, putting the guitar in front of ‘Double J’.

Hogan: Tough luck, brother, you had a great match there and you deserved to win just as much as Alex did, but Jeff, I came out here ‘cause I think you and Mick took a wrong turn last week.

Jarrett looks confused, but listens nonetheless.

Hogan: You say me and Bischoff are killin’ TNA and that we’re gonna run it into the ground like where WCW went, but when you go to the back and you step inside that locker room, I want you to take a look around, brother; AJ Styles is the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Big pop for Styles.

Hogan: A guy that I can guarantee is gonna be one of the biggest stars in this industry, The Pope, is the TNA Global Champion.

Big pop for Dinero.

Hogan: Christopher Daniels, one of the guys that revolutionized the X Division and has been with this company almost as long as you, is the X Division Champion, and two of the best young stars in TNA, Beer Money, are the TNA World Tag Team Champions.

Mixed reaction for Daniels but a pop for Beer Money.

Hogan: See, Jeff? There’s guys like Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Sting who were in WCW back in the day, and they’re not castin’ a shadow over TNA, brother, I’ve got a problem with some of the older guys but I put that aside ‘cause everything I do, I do it for this company.

Cheers for Hogan.

Hogan: So there’s your guitar, Jeff, right in front of ya’. Go on, pick it up.

Not taking his eyes off Hogan, Jarrett reaches down and picks up his guitar, holding it with both hands.

Hogan: I want you to remember everything I just said to you, Jeff, and I wanna see you try to hit me with that guitar. C’mon, you’ve got a free shot, brother.

Hogan leans forward, putting his head in front of Jarrett who looks at ‘The Hulkster’ and then looks down at his guitar. Jarrett lifts up the guitar and is in position to hit Hogan ... but then Jeff stops, and stays still for several moments before shaking his head and leaving the ring, walking up the ramp to cheers from the crowd. Hogan stands back up straight and as ‘My World’ blares out, Hogan gives Jarrett a double thumbs-up.

Tenay: Has Jeff Jarrett had a change of heart? Hulk Hogan gave Jarrett the chance to smash the guitar over his head almost literally on a silver platter, but ‘Double J’ backed out of it! Has Jarrett gone back on what he said to Hogan last week, and just as important, has Mick Foley too?

West: Judging by what Mick Foley said to Abyss earlier tonight, I wouldn’t get my hopes up, but I do think Jarrett didn’t give Hogan a chance at first, but it looks like he has now, Mike.

Tenay: Coming up next, ladies and gentlemen, Desmond Wolfe faces ‘The Icon’ Sting and Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe go head-to-head in a Ladder match for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase!

Backstage, Rhino is walking down a corridor, still with the same sadistic smirk on his face he had earlier when he attacked both the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero and Taz. Then, ‘The War Machine’ is confronted by Eric Bischoff.

Bischoff: What the hell was that, Rhino?!

Rhino continues to laugh, ignoring Bischoff’s question.

Bischoff: I give you a TNA Global Championship match at Destination X, and THIS is how you re-pay me?! You man-handle one of our Champions, the guy you’re facing at the Pay-Per-View, and if that wasn’t bad enough, you attack one of our COMMENTATORS?! Get the hell outta’ this building right now, and you’ll be lucky if you ever come back in here again, let alone have your match at Destination X!

Still laughing, Rhino turns on his heel and walks out of the shot, as Bischoff looks on in disgust.

*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Hungry Like A Wolfe’ blares out and Desmond Wolfe, accompanied by his valet Chelsea, walks out, getting a lot of heat from the crowd. Wolfe gives the crowd a two-fingered gesture with his free hand, the other hand linked with Chelsea’s, before making his way down the ramp, entering the ring and holding down the middle rope for Chelsea and then giving the crowd another ‘salute’ before waiting for his opponent to arrive.

Then, ‘Slay Me’ plays to a huge pop from the crowd and the lights go out in the Arena, as a large spotlight shines down on the stage and Sting walks out. Wearing a long black trench-coat over his ring-gear, ‘The Icon’ walks down the ramp and enters the ring, removing his jacket and shouting ‘Showtime, folks!’ to the fans before preparing for this match with Desmond Wolfe, who stands opposite him.

Singles Match
Desmond Wolfe Vs. Sting
The bell rings and Desmond Wolfe and Sting walk towards the centre of the ring, talking trash to each other for a few moments before both taking a step back and then locking up. Wolfe knees Sting in the mid-section and hits him with a few right hands before going for an Irish whip but Sting reverses it and whips Wolfe into the ropes and when Desmond comes back, Sting takes Wolfe down with a clothesline. Wolfe is quick to recover and he gets back to his feet, running at Sting again but ‘The Icon’ kicks him in the mid-section and takes Wolfe down with a hip toss before running off the ropes and hitting him with an elbow drop. Sting makes the cover, 1...... Wolfe gets the shoulder up. Sting gets back up and gets Wolfe to his feet, wrenching his arm and whipping Wolfe into the corner of the ring, running at him but Desmond counters with a boot to the face of Sting and he follows it up with a bulldog. Wolfe quickly gets back up and stomps away at Sting, taunting him as he runs off the ropes but Sting takes him down with a drop toe hold and subsequently tries to get Wolfe in a crossface but Desmond quickly crawls across the ring and holds onto the ropes as Sting is forced to let go by the referee and ‘The Black Crow’ gets to his feet as he walks over to Wolfe and with the referee’s view obstructed by Sting, Wolfe rakes the eyes of Sting!

‘The Icon’ staggers backwards and Wolfe then tilts in between the ropes, before running at Sting, going for the Jawbreaker Lariat but Sting counters it into a back body drop as Wolfe goes up and then crashes down to the canvas! He soon gets back up and runs at Sting but Sting takes him down with a hip toss before running off the ropes and hitting him with a knee drop to the cranium. Sting gets back and shouts ‘Wooooooooooo!!’ which gets cheers from the crowd and after taking a breather, the veteran gets Wolfe back to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, then running at him, but Wolfe moves out of the way as Sting manages to stop himself before running right into the turnbuckles, but Desmond then clotheslines Sting in the back, taking him over the ropes and out of the ring! Wolfe takes a moment to saunter around the ring and give the fans his signature two-fingered gesture which gets a lot of heat from the crowd in the Impact Zone before he leaves the ring and stomps away at Sting for several moments, then getting him back to his feet.

Desmond Wolfe gets Sting to his feet and hits him with a few right hands until Sting staggers backwards and only the steel security rail is keeping him on his feet, and Wolfe takes a few steps back, gesturing to the audience before running at Sting but ‘The Icon’ renders Wolfe docile with a kick to the mid-section and he then whips the English braggart shoulder-first into the steel ring-post! Wolfe grabs his shoulder in pain and sinks to the concrete floor as Sting gets him back up and gets him back in the ring, then covering Wolfe, 1...... 2...... Wolfe gets the shoulder up! Sting gets back up and gets Wolfe to his feet, Irish whipping him against the ropes and bending down in preparation for a back body drop, but Wolfe runs back at Sting and hits him with a DDT!

Desmond Wolfe immediately hooks Sting’s legs and makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Sting kicks out! Wolfe gets back up and takes Sting’s legs, trying to turn him over onto his stomach but Sting kicks Wolfe away and sends him back-pedalling. Sting gets back up and runs at Wolfe, but Wolfe hits ‘The Icon’ with a Powerslam! Wolfe covers again, 1...... 2...... Sting kicks out again! Wolfe appears to be getting rather impatient now as he has failed to put Sting away so far, and he looks up at the referee Andrew Thomas, getting up and berating the innocent ref Thomas before turning around and jumping high up into the air, dropping his knee onto Sting’s sternum. Wolfe gets Sting up and he Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, then lifting him up to the top rope and climbing up there himself. Wolfe gets Sting in a front face-lock and tries to go for a Superplex but Sting fights back with a few blows to Wolfe’s mid-section and he then pushes Wolfe off the top rope and down to the canvas! The crowd cheer as Sting is now on the top rope with his opponent laid out on the canvas, and Sting hollers ‘Showtime!’ before flying off the top rope and connecting with an elbow drop! Sting lands on top of Wolfe and covers him straight away, 1...... 2...... 3-NO! Wolfe gets the shoulder up in the nick of time!

There has been no quit in either of these warriors in this spectacular contest, and it comes to an end when Sting gets Desmond Wolfe to his feet after a clothesline, and he Irish whips him into the corner of the ring with the referee standing nearby. Sting stands in the opposite corner and runs across the ring towards Wolfe, but Wolfe pulls the referee towards him by the shirt, putting him in the corner as he moves out of the way and Sting is already in the air as he accidentally hits the referee with the Stinger Splash! Thomas is now down and out and Sting looks down at the referee with a look of shock on his face, but Wolfe looks to take advantage, running at Sting but ‘The Icon’ kicks Wolfe in the mid-section and plants him with a DDT! Sting is now the only man standing in the ring and he stands over Wolfe wondering what to do next, but meanwhile Sting’s nemesis Mr. Anderson runs down the ramp and enters the ring, taking Sting’s black baseball bat from the corner, and when he turns around, Anderson nails Sting with a baseball bat shot to the mid-section, followed by another one to the spine!

Sting goes down in a heap and Anderson stomps away at Sting with the crowd booing the hell out of him until Wolfe gets up, and Anderson brings Sting to his feet, then leaving the ring as Wolfe tilts in between the ropes and charges forward, nailing Sting with the Jawbreaker Lariat! Wolfe shakes the referee Andrew Thomas around ruthlessly until he at least partially wakes up, and when he does, Wolfe covers! 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner – Desmond Wolfe @ 9:17

Desmond Wolfe has beaten Sting! The fans in the Impact Zone cannot believe it, and they are livid as Wolfe gets to his feet with a grin on his face and he raises his hands in the air, ‘saluting’ the crowd with his two-fingered gesture before leaving the ring, leaving the fallen Sting to the psychotic egomaniac Mr. Anderson.

Tenay: I cannot believe this! Desmond Wolfe has beaten Sting, thanks to Sting’s rival Mr. Anderson! That man makes me sick!

Anderson slithers back into the ring with a smirk on his face and he stands over Sting who is barely moving, then reaching up into the air as his microphone comes down, grabbing it.

Anderson: Oops ... my bad, Stinger.

Anderson laughs at himself as he gets insane heat from the crowd.

Anderson: At Destination X, your only destination is going to be retirement ... and you can only blame yourself, because now you know never to piss off, MIIIIIISSSSSSTTTTAAAAAAHHHHHH ... ... AAAAANNNDDDDEERRSSSOONNNNN!!!!!

Anderson then crouches down and lifts up Sting’s head, repeatedly hitting Sting in the forehead with the microphone until Sting is bleeding! Once his job is done, Anderson lets go of Sting and lies down on the mat, whispering into Sting’s ear:

Anderson: (Whispering) Annndddeeeerrrsssonnnn.

Anderson gets up and lets go of the microphone, taking Sting’s baseball bat with him and lifting Sting’s head up again, rubbing his bloodied head against the bat until it has blood on it as ‘Mic Checked’ blares out and Anderson leaves the ring, walking up the ramp with a look of sheer satisfaction on his face after what he just did to Sting whilst holding the blood-stained bat in the air.

Tenay: Mr. Anderson is a sick, vile son-of-a-you know what, and he just showed that to the whole world when he decimated Sting and made ‘The Icon’ bleed, and he even smeared Sting’s blood on his own black baseball bat and then took the bat with him!

West: If Sting wasn’t intimidated by Mr. Anderson before then I bet he sure as hell is now, and I would go and check on him, but I don’t want to make the same mistake as Taz. I wouldn’t be shocked if Sting doesn’t even make it to Destination X, Mike, after that beating Anderson gave him!

Tenay: Coming up next, ladies and gentlemen, it’s Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe one-on-one in a Ladder match, with Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match hanging in the balance. Both men have said that should they win, they’ll use the opportunity against AJ Styles at Destination X, but who will it be?

Backstage, Christy Hemme is standing by, alongside Kurt Angle.

Hemme: I’m standing by with Kurt Angle, who is just moments away from facing Samoa Joe in a Ladder match for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase which guaranatees a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match anytime, anywhere.

Angle nods his head.

Hemme: Kurt, you said last week that if you win this Ladder match then you will use your title opportunity against AJ Styles at Destination X, but why then? Why wouldn’t you want to use it, for example, after AJ’s already had a match?

Angle: Christy, just by you saying that I can tell you don’t know a lot about me, because I don’t believe in shortcuts. I didn’t win an Olympic gold medal by taking shortcuts, hell, as clichť as I’ve made it sound, I won it with a broken freakin’ neck!

Pop for Angle.

Angle: I’m a three-time TNA World Heavyweight Champion, and I’d be damned if I don’t win tonight and make it four World Titles at Destination X!

More cheers for ‘The Wrestling Machine’.

Angle: Me and Samoa Joe, we have a lot of history together; when I made by TNA debut almost four years ago, Joe was the first guy I set my eyes on, ‘cause I had been watching him for a long time before that day and I knew that he could take me to the limit and he did, and all of the classic matches we’ve had, some of the best matches to ever happen in a TNA ring, can attest to that. I’ve won titles from him, he’s won titles from me, not to mention we were allies less than a year ago in the Main Event Mafia!

Mixed reaction at the mention of the MEM.

Angle: But we’ve never faced each other one-on-one in a Ladder match, and tonight, to me, it’s the most important match we’ll ever have, because it’s do or die for me, if I lose this match, then I have to go the rest of the year without being able to win the one thing that I eat, sleep and breathe, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. So Joe, if you thought I gave you the fight of your life in the past ... then you haven’t seen anything yet. Oh, it’s real ... It’s damn real!

Big pop for Angle, who then walks out of the shot.

Elsewhere, Jeremy Borash is standing by with Angle’s opponent, Samoa Joe.

Borash: I am standing by with the man who will face Kurt Angle, who we just heard from, in a Ladder match, in a few short moments, ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe, and Joe, this is a new environment for you as far as your battles with Kurt are concerned; you’ve had one-on-one matches, you’ve had steel cage matches, but never before have you clashed in a Ladder match. Your thoughts?

Joe: JB, you are right; me and Kurt have had countless matches over the past four years, they’ve all been some of the best matches TNA has ever seen, but as far as I’m concerned, I’m not inexperienced in Ladder matches ... it’s just been a match waiting to happen.

Mixed reaction for Joe, who continues.

Joe: Every type of match I compete in, I revolutionize, I leave an ever-lasting mark of destruction and annihilation on it, and tonight will be no different, JB. I can do whatever the hell I please tonight, I can bust his head open with a steel chair, I can put him through tables, I can choke his sorry ass to death with wires, but I’m not gonna do that because I want Kurt to every single moment of me climbing up that ladder, taking my Feast or Fired briefcase and holding it up in the air.

Joe takes a step closer to the camera.

Joe: Kurt, I don’t consider tonight as me having never faced you in a Ladder match ... I think of it as you having never faced me in a Ladder match ... and you should too, Kurt, because you’re the one who needs to be worried, not me. As for AJ Styles ... I hope you watch the match tonight, because you should know fully well that I can inflict more damage on you in a normal one-on-one match than I can inflict on Kurt in a Ladder match when I do and use whatever the hell I please. So get ready for Destination X, AJ.

‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ stares into the camera lens for several moments before walking out of the shot to a mixed reaction.

The Night They Shocked The World – Samoa Joe allows Kurt Angle to win the TNA World Heavyweight Championship in the King Of The Mountain Match at Slammiversary 2009, marking the birth of their short-term alliance.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Get Ready To Fly’ plays to a big pop from the crowd and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles walks out with his title over his shoulder, as he makes his way over to the announce table and joins Mike Tenay and Don West.

Tenay: Welcome back to Impact, everybody, we are just moments away from our main event, a Ladder match between Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase, and both men have said that if they win, they will use it at Destination X against the TNA World Heavyweight Champion, AJ Styles, who is joining us here for the match. Welcome, AJ.

Styles: It’s great to be here, Mike. Whoever wins this match, I’m lookin’ forward to facin’ them, I’ve been against both of ‘em before and I’ve beaten both of ‘em before so hopefully I can beat one of ‘em at Destination X. Nice to see you back at the announce table too, Don West.

West: It sure is, AJ, and Taz, if you’re watching, I hope you get well soon and you take as much time off as you like to recover!

‘Nation Of Violence’ blares out and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe walks out, keeping his head down as he walks down the ramp with a white towel over his neck. Joe enters the ring and looks up at his Feast Or Fired briefcase that is hanging above the ring before walking into the corner of the ring, looking at the four ladders that surround the squared circle.

Then, ‘Gold Metal’ plays to a big pop from the crowd and the lights dim in the Impact Zone, as Kurt Angle emerges on the stage and he steps off the mini-elevator he came up on, raising his hands above his head simultaneously with his pyro before walking down the ramp and walking around the ring, touching all of the ladders before entering the ring.

Ladder Match For The Feast Or Fired Briefcase
Kurt Angle Vs. Samoa Joe
The bell rings and instead of locking up, Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe run at each other and Angle tries to take Joe down to the canvas but Joe manages to stay on his feet as he hangs against the ropes and when Kurt stands up straight Joe kicks Angle in the mid-section and takes Kurt down with a few clubbing blows to the back, then stomping away at Angle’s back and then getting Kurt back to his feet, kneeing Angle in the mid-section and lifting Kurt up for a scoop slam, but Angle slips off Joe’s shoulders and he then goes for the Angle Slam, but Joe lands on his feet behind Angle and he takes ‘The Wrestling Machine’ down with a chopblock. Joe then rolls out of the ring and grabs Angle’s legs, pulling him out of the ring and hitting him with some right hands and then going to slam Angle’s face into the security rail but Kurt counters it and he kicks Joe in the mid-section, ramming the skull of the ‘Samoan Submission Machine’ into the security rail multiple times and then throwing Joe into the steel ring-post!

Joe goes down and Angle takes one of the ladders from nearby, sliding it into the ring and then entering the squared circle, setting up the ladder, but before he can begin to climb it, Samoa Joe is back in the ring, and Joe hits Angle with a blow to the back as Kurt staggers back into the corner of the ring and Joe takes a few steps back before running towards the corner at Angle, but Angle moves out of the way as Joe runs into the corner without hitting Angle and Kurt then runs at him, hitting Joe with a clothesline. Angle then takes down the ladder and lays it flat on the canvas, then lifting Joe up to the top rope and climbing up there, wrapping his arms around Joe’s chest, and hitting Joe with a belly-to-belly suplex off the top rope and onto the ladder!

There are a lot of cheers in the crowd after that and a ‘TNA! TNA! TNA!’ chant comes to fruition as both competitors lie motionlessly on the canvas, Samoa Joe lying on the ladder, and several moments later, Kurt Angle struggles to his feet as he pushes Joe across and picks up the ladder, setting it up and slowly climbing it rung-by-rung, but when Angle is on the fifth rung, Joe gets to his feet with assistance of the lower rungs of the ladder, and he grabs onto Angle’s legs, stalling ‘The Olympic Hero’ and climbing up the ladder, lifting up Angle, and taking Angle off the ladder and down to the canvas with a back suplex! It is back to square one as Joe and Angle are both down on the canvas, but a few moments later Joe is back on his feet and instead of climbing the ladder Joe leaves the ring and lifts up the ring apron, searching under the ring and revealing a steel chair which he slides into the ring.

As signs of fatigue become evident, ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ re-enters the ring, but by the time he is back in the squared circle, Angle has grabbed the steel chair and he is now, albeit barely, on his feet, and Angle nails Joe in the skull with the steel chair! Joe falls to the canvas and Angle looks up at the Feast or Fired briefcase and then looks down at Joe ... before removing the straps from his singlet, and locking Samoa Joe in the Ankle Lock! The crowd pop as Joe is locked in the lethal submission, and Joe quickly edges across the ring, getting the upper half of his body past the ropes and eventually getting out of the ring by getting through the ropes, taking Angle out of the ring with him.

Both Samoa Joe and Kurt Angle get to their feet and they trade right hands, until Joe kicks Angle in the mid-section, and hurls Angle into the security rail! The impact, no pun intended, of that slightly displaces the rail, as Kurt sits up against it and Joe walks over, getting Angle back to his feet and lifting him up in a Gorilla press position before dropping Angle chest-first onto the security rail! Not letting Kurt fall to the ground, Joe lifts Angle up by the legs, and dumps Kurt on the other side of the rail in the crowd! Joe subsequently climbs over the security rail and gets Angle up, hitting him with punches and then getting Angle in a front face-lock, trying to lift him up for a suplex and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ manages to slightly lift Kurt off the ground, but ‘The Olympic Hero’ manages to keep his feet down and he fights his way out of the predicament following half a dozen blows to Joe’s mid-section, before hitting him with a few punches and then climbing back over the rail, getting Joe, still on the other side, in a front face-lock, and just about managing to lift him over, hitting Joe with a suplex on the concrete floor!

Kurt Angle throws both of his hands above his head and shouts ‘Yeah!’ which gets a good reaction from the crowd, and he then gets Samoa Joe to his feet, hurling Joe face-first into the steel ring-post! Joe falls against the ring apron which keeps him up instead of falling down again and Angle then loads him back into the ring, gradually climbing to the top rope, and when he’s up there, Angle goes for a Moonsault but Joe rolls out of the way as Kurt crashes and burns on the canvas!

Both men lie on the canvas trying to catch their breath, as the effects of this gruelling match begin to take their toll, and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ slowly gets to his feet, grabbing the ladder and setting it up in the corner of the ring. Joe gets Angle to his feet and lifts him up in position for the Muscle Buster but Angle fights out of it and lands on his feet behind Joe, wrapping his hands around Joe’s waist, and sending Joe into the ladder in the corner of the ring with a German Suplex! The crowd pop and chant ‘Holy Sh*t!’ as Angle is still holding onto Joe and he drags Joe back into the centre of the ring, getting him to his feet, and German Suplexing Joe into the ladder AGAIN! Joe’s back must be nearly broken now, but Angle does not care one single bit, as he gets Joe back in the middle of the ring again and gets him up, German Suplexing Joe into the Ladder for a THIRD time!

Kurt Angle takes the ladder which has almost been snapped in half from the corner of the ring and sets it up in the middle, thinking about climbing it but Angle seems to think that he hasn’t done enough, and he puts the ladder on the floor, dragging Samoa Joe across until he is sandwiched inside the ladder and Angle lifts the top half of the ladder up, ready to drive it into Joe, but ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ hits Angle with a low-blow, kicking him in the groin! Angle back-pedals and Joe struggles to his feet, nailing Kurt with a stiff enzuiguri to the skull! Angle falls to the canvas and Joe sets up the ladder, beginning to climb it to get towards his Feast Or Fired briefcase, and with Angle just beginning to try to get up, Joe is three-quarters of the way up the ladder and he is about to reach up for the briefcase, but Angle climbs up two rungs, enough to grab Samoa Joe, who suddenly slips away from within touching distance of the Feast Or Fired Briefcase, and nail Joe with an Angle Slam off the ladder!!!

The crowd pop after Kurt Angle once again thwarts Samoa Joe’s attempt to retrieve the briefcase and win this Ladder match, and both competitors are once again down until Angle tries to get up, holding onto the ropes and eventually he pulls himself up, as Kurt stumbles towards the ladder and ‘The Wrestling Machine’ takes a few moments to regain his composure before taking the gruelling journey up the ladder, slowly climbing up rung by rung, but Angle isn’t going very fast due to being exhausted from this bout, and Joe uses the ladder to pull himself up, pushing the ladder over as Angle goes face-first into the ring-ropes and the ladder falls down! After not having anything to keep himself up with, Joe sinks to his knees, and ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ crawls across the mat, grabbing the ladder and trying to lift it up but he can’t as he isn’t able to stand up, so instead Joe pulls the ladder across by its end and he opens it up, slightly dragging Angle across the mat closer towards him and putting Kurt’s ankle in between the ladder. Joe gets his hands on the top part of the ladder, ready to sandwich Angle’s ankle, but Kurt hits Joe with a stiff boot to the face and Joe falls back!

Angle edges backwards into the corner of the ring and grabs the ropes, pulling himself up and taking the ladder which almost crushed his ankle, setting it up in the middle of the ring and taking his time to do so in order to get it in exactly the right position to climb it and retrieve the Feast or Fired briefcase which he has damn near put his body and career on the line to win. ‘The Olympic Hero’ once again begins to climb the ladder, getting half-way up when Samoa Joe is up on his feet and he begins to climb the ladder as well on the other side! Both men continue to climb and when they are both at the top of the ladder and both within touching distance of the briefcase, Angle and Joe begin to trade blows, constantly doing so until Joe hits Kurt with a hard punch and Angle falls off the ladder!

That right hand was so hard that not only did Kurt Angle fall off the ladder, but Samoa Joe fell down one rung as well! But, Joe keeps his mind on the task and he climbs up the remaining rung, as he is once again within touching distance of the briefcase, and he has one hand on it, but Angle landed in a fortunate position on the mat, and Angle pushes the ladder over, as Joe falls off and goes face-first into the ropes ... and the ladder bounces off the ropes and goes right back into Angle’s hands!

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

IT’S RIC FLAIR!!!

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

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

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

Tenay: Samoa Joe has won the Ladder match, but he can consider himself damn lucky he did because Kurt Angle was going to win that match but Ric Flair raised the briefcase even higher above the ring and then Joe capitalized!

West: Kurt Angle can consider himself well and truly screwed by Ric Flair, but he messed with ‘The Nature Boy’ and Flair made him pay the price!

Tenay: So AJ, that man sitting at the top of that ladder will challenge you for your TNA World Heavyweight Championship on March 21st at Destination X.

Styles: Yep, but I’ll be damned if I get screwed out of this title at Destination X. I don’t know if I’m on anybody’s bad side as much as Kurt is on Flair’s, but I know that nobody’s on Joe’s good side.

With his briefcase in his hands, Samoa Joe points to AJ Styles at the announce table, and the show closes with the image of Joe’s fingered directed at Styles as he holds his briefcase, and AJ standing up with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship held aloft...

Tenay: You could cut the tension with a knife here, ladies and gentlemen! AJ Styles and Samoa Joe will compete one-on-one at Destination X for the most prestigious prize in professional wrestling, the TNA World Heavyweight Championship! Goodnight, everybody, and we’ll see you next Monday night for another edition of Impact!

March 21st – It’s on...

Default Re: Shocker Presents: TNA 2010 - The Revolution

I think I'm two Impacts behind so I'll review both since I don't want to be lost on the newest one...


Makes sense for RVD to start the show. Shaky things said I think. I don't think RVD would repeat Anderson's name or talk about someone beating him "cleanly". I don't think RVD said enough before interrupted by Wolfe either. Love what you did with Wolfe here. The rudeness is perfect. Don't like RVD saying that Wolfe may be a more technical wrestler. I don't think RVD would put over Wolfe. I guess these two are feuding. Wolfe was great in this promo, but I didn't like RVD too much. Wolfe vs. Sting should be good.

Beer Money with the clean win. Good to see them get some momentum. I can see them somehow interfering with G-Me next week.

Short, but sweet promo between Rhino and Bischoff. Furthers the storyline by Rhino, and the feud situation with Pope. Good stuff.

This next part is a little confusing to me because I don't know much about the World Elite, but it seems like you've got a huge tag match planned or something of the sort. I gotta keep my eye on this to understand it better, but it looks great. Surprised Terry beat Magnus and Williams (basically), but I got the point of the whole ordeal.

Loved Daniels in this promo. The video game stuff and "me under the mask" stuff was good. Kinda close to breaking kayfabe, but you didn't, plus you got some hype for the game. Good stuff.

Brian Kendrick winning made sense. He's a better fit for Ultimate X than Suicide. I like the recap in the commentary. Smart.

Hogan time. Jeff Jarrett = amazing. So true what he's saying, and most fans know it, so this is awesome. Foley adds to the awesomeness. It's kinda close to personal, but I love this promo because of that. This is actually a shot to the heart if it were said in real life. I don't think Foley would say exact numbers for ages, but I'm nitpicking. The WCW shots are bad. Didn't like those. Good way to finish it. If Jarrett and Foley shook his hand, I'd revolt. =P

Wow. Abyss is basically a jobber now. lmao. Expected Rhino to win, and on top of that, I kind of expected the Dinero attack. Good booking nonetheless.

I'm not surprised at Joe calling out when he's going to cash in his briefcase, but I am surprised by him talking about his X-Division past especially since he's facing Styles. It makes the world title situation feel more like the X title situation. Or to me it does anyways. Angle has some valid points. I was expecting him to tell Joe to put the suitcase on the line before Styles interrupted. I think Styles interrupting was unnecessary. I know he wants Angle back in the mix, but I don't think he was needed for anything other than face time. Promo ended a little awkwardly for me. Those typical lines from Angle and Joe didn't really do it for me.

Team 3D jobs to the momentum gaining MCMG. Team 3D might be jobbing next week too. I'm gonna doubt it just because I see interference happening next week. I was wondering when Hall and Nash would show. One liners from both, but the heat between the two is starting up, which is what you needed to do. Good job.

The bat was random. Could definitely see that happening in TNA especially with how different Anderson is there. Sting contributes to Anderson's loss. He needed an appearance so that made sense.

The thing I love about your shows is the amount of detail. It gets me into the show, and it feels more real. The short appearances from wrestlers is a bother to me, but with so many things going on, and very little time, it makes sense. I'm glad you got each wrestler their time. Promos were good. I nitpick at things, but the context is great. Your booking is awesome. Things seem to be rolling perfectly, and I can't wait for this ppv. I see Red and Kaz making the Ultimate X Match. Don't know who else though. K...I'm done for now, but I'll edit in the next Impact...

EDIT:

And here we go. Anderson recalls the bat dropping. Awesome. Typical Anderson here. Sting confrontation was bound to happen. Loving the words between the two. Anderson carries this promo. Sting seems off. The "old" insult at the end wasn't necessary imo. Used it a couple of times in this promo already. Great promo to open the show. The attack after the promo made sense. I sense a tag match next week or so involving Wolfe & Anderson against RVD & Sting.

Kaz winning the qualifier was a given. Red next? =P

Never expected Abyss to call anyone out. Actually, I'm still not used to Abyss talking. From jobbing to Rhino last week to a storyline with Foley. Different turn of events for sure. Ouch. Foley with some true to life comments. I think the IWC would love it, but I doubt it'd happen in TNA. Awesome nonetheless. Another handshake withdrawal in the show? Didn't like that tbh.

The banning from ringside made sense. Williams with a dirty win is awesome. I know the 6 man is coming soon, and it's gonna be havoc. The Angle/Joe history moments are a good touch btw.

G-Me with a clean win over Team 3D? Team 3D have become hardcore jobbers now eh? Totally expected a Beer Money interference, but Beer Money afterwards will do. Didn't like the Hardy Boyz callout. A total IWC comment. The cockiness of Beer Money did good for this promo. Good way to get them some face time too. Good stuff.

The "War Machine" Hippo sounds awkward. I get what your trying to do, but putting War Machine in front of Hippo just sounds awkward. Too much emphasis on Hippo in this promo tbh. I like how he puts Rhino over though. Violent Rhino attack. I'm guessing the match stip will change because of this. Taz gets demolished by the Gore as well. I haven't seen a lot of announcers getting into the action in BTBs lately, so this is refreshing. Quite a few lengthy promos so far tonight. Good and bad thing I guess.

DON WEST! lol, nice to see him again.

Jarrett loses cleanly to Shelley? Did I see that right? MCMG look good, and Jarrett looks pretty weak here.

I think Hogan's airtime here is unnecessary. The way he pointed out the champions being TNA home grown is a bad call imo. It shows that there's actually booking and determined winners. The IWC community knows it, but a wrestling promotion doesn't point it out. Rhino getting the boot out of the arena is a nice touch. Most people forget the little things like this.

Anderson helps Wolfe win and then attacks Sting. Where was RVD in this sequence?

Fantastic Angle promo. He got the point across, as well as brought up the important things about the past. With all the history moments throughout the show, Angle's promo made the main event all the better. You botched a line in the Joe promo. I think you meant for Kurt Angle to witness every; I like how they both touched on facing AJ Styles as well. Triple threat maybe?

As expected, tons of spots in this match. Ric Flair appearance as well. Muscle buster off the ladder must be mad painful. Joe wins mainly because of Flair. Definitely see Angle getting into the title match or facing Flair or something like that. Definitely a great way to finish the show. Glad you gave regular Impact viewers a reason to watch as well.

Phenomenal show to say the least. A couple of iffy things, but for the most part, the booking is excellent. There's so many little things that make this show and thread sooo good. I think your one of the best bookers in the section right now, and this thread is a definite read for everyone. I'm learning new things, and I've been doing this for a while too. The detail is excellent btw. Gets me into the show and the matches. Destination X looks great, and I most certainly can't wait.

Impact Feedback


I was a huge fan of your WWE thread, and this is my first venture into this thread, which Iíve heard mixed things about, so forgive me if Iím biased.

The Anderson promo to start was okay, but didnít really have any substance about it. Donít get me wrong, he had his digs at Sting because Sting has been causing him trouble, but it seemed like you just threw in a few cheap insults here and there, followed by a catchphrase. No flow whatsoever for me. Keep Sting short and sharp, please. I donít like Sting making jokes either, it just doesnít fit in with his mysterious character. Once again, towards the end, it just seems like youíre trying way to hard with Anderson, and I failed to get excited by anything that he said.

Desmond Wolfe attacking Sting out of nowhere is just typical TNA booking, just cramming way too much into the first segment. I guess youíre sticking with their style? RVD helping Sting out confirms this for me even more.

On a side note, I like all the Angle/Joe videos, making the match a really big deal.

Kazarian was always going to go over Kiyoshi, tbh. Has anything happened with Kazarian and Daniels in the past? If not, this stare down probably didnít need to happen this week.

at an Abyss and Foley promo. Anyway, Abyss was bad on the mic, so glad it didnít last long, and Foley was pretty good. I think maybe Foley could have fired up just a little bit earlier, as when he was calm; the things you had him saying didnít seem very Foley like. Having Foley calm down after he had already fired up was also not in character, as once Foley lets rip, he goes nuts. Abyss ignores the hand shake, but Iím pretty sure the seeds of a much needed heel turn have been planted.

Iím quite happy that Bischoff stepped in and removed all the guys from ringside, will make for a better match.

A good win for Doug Williams against Hernandez. I canít really say much else, as I donít know if they have been feuding for awhile or what.

Generation Me defeating Team 3D shocked me a little, but I guess theyíre getting pushed to tag gold so itís the right move. Iím glad youíre having Team 3D putting over younger talent to, as their run at the top of the tag division should have been finished a long time ago.

Beer Money adding some bad blood to their feud is always good; however I didnít like The Hardy Boyz reference. TNA mention WWE far too much, IRL, and I donít like it here either.

I love The Pope, and I think his character is amazing; however I couldnít get into this promo from the start. As soon as the word ďhippoĒ came into play, I found the promo to be very lame, for a lack of a better word. A couple of the mum jokes werenít that bad, but this promo didnít cut it for me at all.

I mark for Rhino, so Iíd love to see him defeat The Pope. The attack was pretty damn intense, as was the shit with Taz, which was pretty unexpected, and Iíd say youíve given Rhino all the momentum in the world. Capitalise on it, though, as you clearly write Rhino better than you write The Pope.

Don West? I wouldnít have commentators at all if I were booking TNA.

A great win for Alex Shelley over Jarrett. Iím loving the way youíre giving some of the young talent a red hot go, although the sooner you get the likes of Foley, Jarrett and even Sting out of the ring for good, the better.

I pray that Hogan was able to convince Jarrett to leave for good. If not, Jarrett should have smashed the guitar over Hoganís head, injuring Hogan and forcing Hogan to leave. If neither of these happen, Iíll be severely annoyed.

Bischoff does not suit being a face. Turn him into Rhinoís handler, please.

A big win for Desmond Wolfe over Sting which is something I like. Iím not sure what Wolfe is up to in terms of the big picture at the moment, but I really hope heís not just hanging around, not in a big feud.

I hope Anderson is right. You need to retire Sting.

Angle seemed pretty intense, and pretty in character here. Nothing to complain about at all.

Joeís interview was also pretty good, although all that stuff about who facing who in the ladder match did seem a little jumbled up. Joe sent a message to AJ, and Angle didnít, I really hope this doesnít mean youíve already given away the result, as at the moment I expect Joe to win, just from reading these interviews.

I appreciate the amount of detail you put into the main event, even if it was a glorified spot fest. Joe got the win, which is just what I expected after reading the interviews. You should probably just watch not giving little hints away in promoís before the match, ruins the excitement. As for Flair screwing Angle, I donít know what to think, but Iím not liking so much emphasis on all the old guys.

Overall, youíve now got Styles/Joe, and Anderson/Sting to head into Destination X as your two main feuds. Besides these, and the push of the MCMGís, Iím not too sure I like whatís going on in this thread at the moment. In real life, there is way too much emphasis on the older talent for my liking, and you seem to be doing the exact same thing. With that being said, you do know where the talent is, as your champions list is rather impressive, so hereís to hoping you can rectify the wreck that is TNA more and more in this thread.

TNA Monday Night Impact Preview For March 8, 2010

With less than two weeks until Destination X, TNA Monday Night Impact is back on Spike for two hours of the best professional wrestling you can see on Monday nights!

In this week's main event, we have a huge Six-Man Tag Team Match in store! The TNA World Heavyweight Champion 'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles teams with 'The Whole F'n Show' Rob Van Dam and 'The Icon' Sting to face 'The Samoan Submission Machine' Samoa Joe, Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson! Styles will defend his title against Joe and Anderson will face Sting, both matches taking place at Destination X and we have been told that an announcement will be made regarding Van Dam and Wolfe! Which trio will prevail in this star-studded encounter?

After being screwed by Ric Flair in his Ladder Match with Samoa Joe, we will hear from Kurt Angle and he will undoubtedly have a lot to say to "The Nature Boy"! Will there be any ramifications?

One week after Alex Shelley picked up a huge victory over the founder of TNA, Jeff Jarrett, the other half of The Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin, faces "The Hardcore Legend" Mick Foley in... you guessed it, a Hardcore Match! Can Sabin survive, and possibly win, against Foley?

We will hear from "The War Machine" Rhino, after he viciously attacked not only his Destination X opponent, the TNA Global Champion "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero, but also the color commentator, Taz!

Kevin Nash will speak out for the first time since his Loser Leaves TNA No Holds Barred Match with Scott Hall at Destination X was announced! Will we hear from Hall as well?

Qualifying continues for the Ultimate X Match at Destination X, as The Amazing Red squares off against Homicide! Which of these men will earn the opportunity to become the TNA X Division Champion on March 21st?

Hey, man. Sorry I haven't been commenting, but I have been reading. Show looks pretty good here. You've got a huge main event which should be great, the undercard looks pretty good with the match jumping out being Sabin and Foley. The rest of the matches look fine as well. Kurt Angle promo should be good while the Rhyno one should be at least decent.

Looking forward to it.

God damn you write to fast. Anyway, the big six man tag should be a nice way to get some hype for the major feuds heading into Destination X, but as usual, I'm expecting a no contest, or some kind of dirty finish. I'm hoping hearing from Angle doesn't mean we're going to get an Angle/Flair feud, because as much as I love/loved Angle, these days, out of him and Flair I really don't know who's more athletic. Sabin to defeat Foley, then MCMG can move on to something different, and hopefully you can begin to get all the oldies out of the ring. I'm interested to see what Rhino's explanation is, as he's probably the character I was most interested in with the last show. A Kevin Nash promo could definitely be gold, although he is another guy I'd like to see slowly phase out, his epicness on the mic can allow for him to stick around for awhile. The other two matches announced also seem pretty solid. A bit of a shame that you're not giving any young stars some mic time, as I thought because of the big main event, some of your not as exposed mid carders could get some time to shine, but it doesn't seem like you're going down that path. Show looks like it still could be a fun read though, so I'll be sure to check in.

TNA Monday Night Impact – March 8th – Orlando, Florida


We begin with a video package recounting the events of last week’s edition of Impact! which highlights Sting’s victory over Desmond Wolfe and the subsequent beat-down at the hands of Mr. Anderson, and the gruelling Ladder match between Kurt Angle and Samoa Joe for Joe’s Feast or Fired briefcase guaranteeing a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match anytime, anywhere, which Joe won after Ric Flair raised the briefcase out of Angle’s reach and Joe retrieved it following a Muscle Buster off the top of the ladder.

Then, the opening credits roll and ‘Change Me’ blares out as the camera cuts into the Impact! Zone in time to capture the opening pyro. The camera pans the fans in the Arena tonight who are holding up signs of all shapes, sizes and colours, before cutting to Mike Tenay and Taz.

Tenay:Hello everybody and welcome to TNA Impact, coming to you from Orlando, Florida! I’m Mike Tenay alongside Taz and we have a huge main event for you tonight, a six-man tag team match with the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam and Sting facing Samoa Joe, Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson!

Taz: I can’t remember seeing or hearing of a bigger tag team match than that, Professor, I cannot wait to see six of TNA’s best in the same ring, at the same time!

Tenay:Also tonight ‘The Hardcore Legend’ Mick Foley will be in action against one half of the Motor City Machine Guns, Chris Sabin and earlier today it was revealed that it will be a Hardcore match, so the ball is now in Foley’s court.

Taz: Plus, the leader of the World Elite, Eric Young, faces a massive task as he squares off against ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan, with once again, Hernandez, Rob Terry and the British Invasion banned from ringside like they were last week by Eric Bischoff.

Tenay: Also, we will discover the identity of the fourth man competing in the Ultimate X match as Amazing Red and Homicide go one-on-one with two spots still available after tonight which will be filled next week!

Taz: Not only that, but one half of Generation Me, Max Buck, will face one half of the TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money, Robert Roode, and we’ll hear from the man who last week on Impact not only attacked the TNA Global Champion ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero, but also attacked me; Rhino.

Then, ‘Gold Metal’ blares out to a good pop from the crowd and Kurt Angle walks out, wearing a suit and looking rather monotone as he makes his way down the ramp, not doing anything to accompany his pyro. Instead of stepping into the ring, Angle searches under the ring and reveals a ladder which he slides into the squared circle, setting it up and calling for a microphone which he receives before climbing up the ladder and sitting at the top of it as the lights go out in the Impact Zone apart from a spotlight that shines down on Angle.

Angle: Last Monday night ... I was in this very position at the top of a ladder and the one thing that could potentially save my career was hanging above my head.

The crowd cheer Angle but boo the events that occurred that prevented him from winning last week.

Angle: Hanging above my head was Samoa Joe’s Feast Or Fired briefcase which guarantees him a TNA World Heavyweight Championship match anytime, anywhere, and he’s going to use it against AJ Styles at Destination X, but it should be me who should be facing AJ, and it’s not arrogance, it’s the damn truth because Joe wasn’t moving a single muscle when he was lying down there and I literally had that briefcase in my hands, but then ... it got taken away from me, and it got taken away from me by an over-the-hill, selfish son-of-a-b*tch called Ric Flair.

Mixed reaction for Flair.

Angle: That crazy guy just doesn’t know when to quit ... I had moved on, I moved on for the better because I would do anything to have a chance to become World Champion again, but then Ric just has to come back and screw me, just like he did at Genesis.

Ric now gets boo’ed.

Angle: So now here I am, not having a single thing to do now that the one thing that keeps my heart beating every single day is now impossible to get because I can’t challenge for that title for the rest of the year, and I like to consider myself a pretty modest guy but I refuse to blame myself and it might make me sound cocky but it’s clear as day that if it wasn’t for Ric Flair, I’d be TNA World Heavyweight Champion right now and I would have been for almost two months. So Ric ... get your shrivelled-up ass out here right now so you can get what’s coming to you!

Angle waits at the top of the ladder for Ric Flair but several moments later there is still no sign of Flair. However, instead of Flair coming out, ‘Rockhouse’ blares out to a big pop from the crowd and Hulk Hogan, along with Eric Bischoff, walks out! Kurt looks to be curious as to why Hogan is out here, and both Hulk and Bischoff are holding microphones as Angle climbs down from the ladder and puts it out of the ring.

Hogan: Y’know, Kurt, I agree with everything you just said, brother ... Ric Flair has been nothing but a thorn in your side, just like he has for a lot of people, which is why I’ve given Ric the night off tonight.

The crowd pop, happy that Flair isn’t here tonight.

Hogan: And as for the stipulation that you’re not able to challenge for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship for the rest of this year ... screw that, brother, I’m lifting it!

Huge pop, and Angle looks very happy with this.

Bischoff: But, but, but, Kurt, that doesn’t mean you’re getting a title shot. However, this is gonna be good for you in the long run, and it means that you’re gonna be competing at Destination X.

More cheers from the crowd after that announcement.

Bischoff: Y’see, after Destination X, we’re going to have no challenger to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, which is why at the Pay-Per-View, it’s gonna be a Fatal Four Way match, and the winner of that match will challenge for the title at Lockdown!

That announcement goes down very well with the crowd, who give a huge pop for it.

Hogan: Now, in this match it will be you, Kurt Angle (Big pop) versus ... Jeff Hardy (Big pop) versus ... Desmond Wolfe (Massive heat) versus ... Rob Van Dam!

More cheers after the participants are announced.

Hogan: Now, seeing as Wolfe and Van Dam are involved in the six-man tag team match tonight, we’re gonna have a little preview of this Fatal Four Way match, because right here tonight on Impact, we’re gonna have Kurt Angle one-on-one ... with Jeff Hardy, brother!

Huge pop after that match is made, and ‘Rockhouse’ blares out as Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff leave, their job now done, and Kurt Angle climbs down from the ladder, taking the ladder out of the ring and putting it back under the ring and walking up the ramp, having a blockbuster match tonight with Jeff Hardy to prepare for...

Tenay: Wow! Did you guys hear that?! Kurt Angle and Jeff Hardy one-on-one right here tonight on Impact!

Taz: Man, this night is gonna be off the hook, Professor!

Tenay: Add that to the six-man tag team match and Chris Sabin versus Mick Foley, and we’ve got a hell of a lot to look forward to for the rest of the night!


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘5150’ blares out and Homicide walks out with a black bandana with a white skull covering the lower half of his face. The former X Division Champion makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring, making a ‘WE’ gesture with his hands referencing to World Elite.

‘Red Remix’ plays and another former X Division Champion, Amazing Red, walks out to a warm reaction from the crowd as he makes his way to the ring with Don West behind him and enters the ring, standing opposite Homicide in the corner of the ring.

Ultimate X Qualifying Match
Amazing Red Vs Homicide
The X Division Champion Christopher Daniels, Brian Kendrick and Kazarian are already confirmed for the Ultimate X match at Destination X and with three spots left, one of these men will join them on March 21st. In the opening stages of the match, it is an even contest between Amazing Red and Homicide, but when they continuously cancel each other out, Homicide eventually takes control and in untraditional X Division fashion, Homicide relies more on his technical ability than his high-flying prowess to wear down Red as Don West watches at ringside and tries to rally on his client, as do the fans and it seems to have an effect as Red gets back into the match and after a flurry of quick-paced attacks, Red hits Homicide with the Code Red and makes the cover, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner – Amazing Red @ 5:21

‘Red Remix’ sounds off and Amazing Red gets to his feet as he has one hand raised by the referee and the other raised by Don West, having qualified for the Ultimate X Match at Destination X. Red leaves the ring with West and walks up the ramp, waving to the fans before leaving.

Tenay: Amazing Red defeats Homicide and he is now going to Destination X to compete for the X Division Championship in the Ultimate X Match.

Taz: Either guy could have won that match, Professor, but Red is on his way to Destination X and he could regain the X Division Championship that he lost at Against All Odds to Christopher Daniels!

Tenay: Still to come tonight, Mick Foley faces Chris Sabin in a Hardcore Match, Jeff Hardy takes on Kurt Angle and in a blockbuster six-man tag team match, the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam and Sting square off against Samoa Joe, Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson.

Backstage, Jeremy Borash is standing by with a microphone and he is standing with Jeff Hardy, who gets a big pop when he appears on the screen.

Borash: I’m standing here with ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ Jeff Hardy who will square off against Kurt Angle later tonight and will compete in a Fatal Four Way Match at Destination X to determine who will be the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and Jeff, are you looking forward to facing Angle tonight?

Hardy: Of course, man, I’ve known Kurt for a long time and we’ve only been in the ring together a few times so I’m pretty pumped up about it but Kurt ... sorry, man, but I’m winning tonight and I’m winning at Destination X so I can go on to become TNA World Heavyweight Champion!

Pop for Hardy, who walks away but steps back as Ric Flair strolls into the shot to a mixed reaction and some ‘Woooooo’s from the crowd.

Flair: If it isn’t the man himself, Jeff Hardy! Woooooooo!

Jeff quietly ‘Woooooo’s in return as Flair grins.

Flair: I know you’ve got a lot going on tonight, you’ve got your match against Kurt, but that’s exactly why I’ve come to see ya’, Jeff. Kurt is a low-life, selfish asshole and he hasn’t learnt the meaning of respect yet. I know he respects you, which is why I want you to not only beat him tonight but I want you to beat the holy livin’ hell out of him!

Heat for Flair, as Jeff looks confused.

Hardy: And why exactly would I do that?

Flair: Why? ‘Cause I’m sure you’d like some extra cash in your bank account, and who better to give you a nice, fat pay-cheque for your efforts than ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair?

Hardy: Well, that is tempting ... but unlike you, Ric, I didn’t get into this for money, I came to do what I love, and I’m not gonna stab anybody in the back because you got your ass handed to you by somebody. I’ll see you around.

Jeff walks away and Flair shakes his head in disgust at Hardy, not happy with the response.

Flair: I got my ass handed to me? Who does this guy think he is, JB? ... JB?

Ric looks around, but Borash is gone and Flair sighs as we go to a...


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Down In The Catacombs’ plays and Abyss walks out, raising his hands up as fire ascends from the stage and Abyss makes his way down the ramp, entering the ring and posing for the crowd with Sean Morley standing opposite him. Before the match begins, Mick Foley appears on the screen and Abyss looks at him surprisingly.

Foley: Abyss, I know that you’ve got a match now but I’m certain that you remember what I said to you last week, and I want to remind you that if you don’t join forces with me and Jeff then you’re gonna be stuck in matches against guys like Sean Morley for the rest of your career.

The camera cuts to Morley, who looks offended by Foley.

Foley: Hulk Hogan’s done nothing but hold you back since he and Eric Bischoff came to TNA, and deep down you’re desperate to make yourself noticed and make your voice be heard. So make the right choice.

Foley then disappears from the screen and it’s time for the match to begin.

Singles Match
Abyss Vs Sean Morley
With Abyss’ eyes still fixed on the screen, Sean Morley tries to get a head-start as he hits ‘The Monster’ with a clubbing blow to the back, but Abyss no-sells it and turns around, grabbing Morley by the throat with both hands and lifting him off his feet into the air, choking the veteran, until unceremoniously dropping him to the canvas in a heap. He then gets Morley back up and lifts him up onto his shoulders in a torture rack position before dropping to his knees and letting ‘The Feature Presentation’ fall to the mat again! Abyss makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Abyss lifts Morley’s shoulder up off the mat! You can see a grin on Abyss’ face as he shakes his head, and he gets Sean to his feet, Irish whipping him off the ropes and nailing him with the Black Hole Slam!! Abyss covers him, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner – Abyss @ 0:51

‘Down In The Catacombs’ blares out and Abyss gets to his feet, letting out a roar as he pulls at his hair and looks down at Sean Morley who is barely moving, before frantically nodding his head and leaving the ring, walking up the ramp as he undoubtedly has Mick Foley on his mind...

Tenay: A dominant victory for ‘The Monster’ Abyss over Sean Morley and it looks like Mick Foley is still trying to make Abyss turn to him and Jeff Jarrett.

Taz: Well, we haven’t seen that side of Abyss in a long time, you saw him in there, he had that sadistic grin on his face and he tortured Sean Morley, so maybe Mick is onto something, Professor?

Tenay: Or maybe Abyss is just trying to prove a point to Mick Foley and the TNA fans that he can reach the heights he once enjoyed in this company without any help? It doesn’t sound too ridiculous to me, Taz.

Taz: Touchť, Mike.

Backstage, AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam and Sting are all in the same room at the same time, and Sting is standing in front of the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Styles and RVD.

Sting: This match tonight is a big deal for me, guys. Last week, Mr. Anderson busted my head open with my own baseball bat which he’s still walking around with, and the stitches I had to get after that are still there! You see ‘em?

Sting holds up his hair and points to the stitches, which AJ and Van Dam both look at.

Sting: I don’t know about you guys, but I want revenge. And I know that Desmond and Joe haven’t pulled any crap like Anderson has with me, but Rob you’re competing in the same ring as Wolfe for a shot at AJ’s title, and AJ, you’re defending that title against Joe at Destination X, so if I were you guys, I’d wanna prove a point.

RVD: Dude, don’t worry, I wanna prove a point to Desmond Wolfe, I’ve got this, man.

Sting: Well you sure as hell don’t sound like it, ‘dude’. You’re way too laid-back right now.

Having put RVD in his place, Sting turns to AJ.

Styles: Stinger, you know me, I eat, sleep and breathe this title and since I’ve known Joe he’s thought that he’s better than me so you can count on me.

Sting: Well I hope you guys back that up.

Sting walks out, as RVD and AJ watch him leave and then begin to talk amongst themselves as the screen fades.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Strut’ blares out and Kevin Nash walks out, getting heat from the crowd. Wearing a black polo shirt and jeans, Nash walks down the ramp and steps over the ropes into the ring, taking a microphone and walking around the ring as the lights dim in the Impact Zone.

Nash: You haven’t heard from me in a while, so you can probably guess that I have a lot to say.

Nash looks around, before speaking.

Nash: First off ... the fact that Scott Hall’s still in TNA and my good friend Sean Waltman is the most pathetic and ridiculous thing I quite possibly have ever heard.

The crowd cheer, happy that Waltman is gone.

Nash: It just goes to show how Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff are out of touch with this business and I know that I’m an old-timer myself, but believe it or not, I’m one of the most 21st-century guys you’ll find in the TNA locker room.

Heat for Nash, who nods his head in agreement with himself.

Nash: But fortunately, after Destination X, I won’t have to complain because on March 21st, I’m gonna embarrass Scott Hall like he has been so many times before, and that’s exactly why he’s the guy you should hate and boo, not me. I don’t no-show, I don’t get drunk when I should be working out, I actually do work out unlike him, and those are just a few reasons why Scott’s gonna be living on the streets once I kick his ass at Destination X, even worse than it was at Against All Odds.

More heat for ‘Big Sexy’.

Nash: If you don’t take my word for it ... then how about we get confirmation from your beloved Scott Hall, huh?

Pop from the crowd, who want to see Hall.

Nash: You heard them, Scott ... get your ass out here and tell these people exactly what’s gonna go down at Destination X.

Then, ‘Marvellous Me’ hits and Scott Hall walks out to a pop from the crowd and a sarcastic grin from Nash, who waits patiently as Hall makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring, taking a microphone.

Hall: ... Hey yo.

Cheers for Hall after busting out his catchphrase.

Nash: Now there’s a surprise. Look, Scott, believe it or not, deep down ... I don’t wanna have this match, and I know that deep down you don’t either. I could be doing a lot of better things on March 21st, and while you’d just sit at home doing nothing, it would still be more enjoyable for you than having your ass kicked all over the Impact Zone by ‘Big Sexy’.

Hall shakes his head in disagreement as the crowd chant ‘Nash sucks! Nash sucks!’

Nash: I’m not listening, guys ... Anyway, Scott, I know that you don’t want the match at Destination X, so all you have to do is hand in your resignation tonight and walk away, so it won’t have to happen.

Hall: Kev ... ya’ might hate, but ya’ can’t deny that ya’ know me like the back of your hand, so you should know that I ain’t gonna back down from you.

Pop for Hall, as Nash laughs at his former friend.

Hall: I am gonna be at Destination X, I am gonna face you, and when the night’s over the good guy's still gonna be doing his thing in TNA.

Nash: (Laughing) Seriously?

Hall: You’re damn right I’m serious, chico.

Hall then takes his toothpick out of his mouth, and throws it in Nash’s face! The crowd pop as Nash begins to shake all over, and he lunges at Hall, taking him down to the mat and beginning to pummel Hall with blows, but Scott turns it over and he lashes out repeatedly at ‘Big Sexy’ with closed fists! Both men, after brawling for a few more moments, get back to their feet, but Nash low-blows Hall with a cheap kick to the groin and he runs off the ropes, taking Hall down with a vicious big boot!

Nash looks into the crowd who are booing him and he smirks, before getting Hall back up and tucking his head in between his legs, raising one hand in the air before lifting Hall up and nailing him with the Jack-Knife Powerbomb! ‘Strut’ plays again and Nash looks down at Hall, raising his hand in the air again before leaving the ring, walking up the ramp and disregarding the heat he is getting from the crowd.

Tenay: Ever since the match was announced for Destination X between these two, we’ve waited for a confrontation between Kevin Nash and Scott Hall and we got it here tonight but it ended in a way we didn’t want to see, Taz.

Taz: Nash did what he had to do, Professor, he needed to assert his dominance over Hall face-to-face and I can safely say that he got the job done.

Tenay: Let’s send you to the back with Christy Hemme, who is standing with the TNA World Tag Team Champions, Beer Money!

The camera cuts backstage, where Christy is standing in front of the camera with Beer Money.

Hemme: Thanks guys, like you said, I am standing here with the TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money who will defend their titles against one of TNA’s newest tag teams, Generation Me, at Destination X. Are you surprised at all that you’re facing two young newcomers like these guys on March 21st?

Roode: To be honest, Christy, I’m not. Generation Me, they’ve proven themselves to be a damn good tag team, they’ve beaten The British Invasion, they’ve beaten Lethal Consequences, they’ve beaten Team 3D so yeah, Max and Jeremy have earned the right to step into the ring with guys like us.

Storm: But ... we’ve beaten ‘em before, and we’ll beat ‘em again, ‘cause the bottom line of it is, they can’t beat us. Whatever the hell your names are, ya’ might think you’re hot stuff after beatin’ some of the other teams in TNA, but we ain’t like them, and the biggest reason why is ‘cause we’re the TNA World Tag Team Champions, and if ya’ think you’re better than us, then take a nice, long look at what we’ve got over our shoulders ‘cause the most you’re ever gonna do with these titles, fellas.

Then, Generation Me walk in, looking at Roode and Storm, particularly Storm after his harsh words directed towards them.

Roode: Don’t worry, they don’t say anything.

Max: You might think that, Bobby, but that’s only because we let our work in the ring do the talking and ever since me and Jeremy came to TNA, we’ve wanted to be the TNA World Tag Team Champions, and when we beat you and win those titles at Destination X, we can go out and party, we can have a good time, but right now we’re preparing for Destination X because we know you’re the best tag team in TNA, but instead of preparing you’re having interviews, you’re trying to put us down and that’s why we’re gonna be the best thing going in TNA after Destination X.

Storm sarcastically applauds and Roode wipes fake tears from his eyes, which annoys Generation Me.

Roode: That ... was ... beautiful.

Storm: So very touching.

Jeremy: You think that’s funny?

Roode and Storm both nod their heads.

Jeremy: Then you can laugh your asses off at this too.

Jeremy then, in a courageous act of defiance, slaps Roode across the face! Jeremy and Roode begin to fight, as do Max and Storm, as they brawl around the backstage area and Christy quickly runs out of the way, but then several road agents and wrestlers break up the fight whilst all four men try to break free and continue their fight.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, the camera is at the announce table with Mike Tenay and Taz.

Tenay: Welcome back to TNA Impact, as you saw before the commercial break it all kicked off between the TNA World Tag Team Champions Beer Money and Generation Me who will square off at Destination X, let’s take another look at it.

~ Beer Money & Generation Me Confrontation ~
Storm sarcastically applauds and Roode wipes fake tears from his eyes, which annoys Generation Me.

Roode: That ... was ... beautiful.

Storm: So very touching.

Jeremy: You think that’s funny?

Roode and Storm both nod their heads.

Jeremy: Then you can laugh your asses off at this too.

Jeremy then, in a courageous act of defiance, slaps Roode across the face! Jeremy and Roode begin to fight, as do Max and Storm, as they brawl around the backstage area and Christy quickly runs out of the way, but then several road agents and wrestlers break up the fight whilst all four men try to break free and continue their fight.

------

Taz: Before that confrontation it had been a friendly rivalry between Beer Money and Generation Me since Max and Jeremy Buck became the #1 contenders on the first Monday Night Impact episode, but now it’s getting really heated between these two tandems, Professor.

‘We Are World Elite’ plays and Eric Young walks out to a lot of heat from the crowd, with the rest of the World Elite in tow. Young walks down the ramp and enters the ring, raising one hand in the air and waiting for his opponent to arrive.

Then, ‘Sleeping Giant’ blares out and to a pop from the crowd, Matt Morgan walks out with his blue robe on, accompanied by Hernandez and Rob Terry. Morgan throws his robe off and storms down the ramp, entering the ring and standing opposite the World Elite with Hernandez and Terry at his side. Everyone apart from Morgan and Young leaves the ring, and the match begins.

Singles Match
Eric Young Vs Matt Morgan
This match stems from the February 15th Monday Night Impact when Eric Young offered Hernandez a place in the World Elite and Matt Morgan walked in on them, becoming suspicious but getting back on the same page with ‘Super Mex’. Throughout this match, Morgan is the dominant force in the contest mainly due to his size and the fact that the rest of the World Elite are banned from ringside after constantly trying to interfere in the match but Young constantly chomps at the bit, mainly resorting to punches and cheap tactics and when Morgan goes down, Young stomps away repeatedly at ‘The Blueprint’ and utilizes submissions, getting Morgan in a crossface and almost making the big guy tap out, but Morgan manages to make it to the ropes and that is the last time that Young gets in any offence in this contest, as Morgan dominates the leader of the World Elite and soon hits Young with the Hellevator, making the cover, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winner – Matt Morgan @ 6:34

‘Sleeping Giant’ blares out and Matt Morgan has his hand raised by the referee to a pop from the crowd as Hernandez and Rob Terry come into the ring and congratulate Morgan before the trio leave and Eric Young remains inanimate in the ring.

Tenay: Without the rest of his World Elite, Eric Young was powerless to resist the onslaught of ‘The Blueprint’ Matt Morgan and Morgan picks up the victory over Young tonight.

Taz: And an impressive victory it was, Mike, and I’m now getting word that at Destination X, in a six-man tag team match, it will be Eric Young and the British Invasion versus Matt Morgan, Hernandez and Rob Terry!

Tenay: That’s going to be a big match on March 21st, Taz, and we’re going into our second hour of Impact now, so please stay with us because we’ve got Chris Sabin versus Mick Foley in a Hardcore match, Kurt Angle against Jeff Hardy, and a huge six-man tag team match; the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam and Sting against Samoa Joe, Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson!

Taz: Anderson!

Backstage, the Motor City Machine Guns are walking down a corridor on the way to the ring when Eric Bischoff runs up to them.

Bischoff: Guys, I know the Hardcore match is next, but Alex, I can’t have you out there, I want it to be fair and I’ve said that the same to everybody else, including Jeff Jarrett, so Chris, good luck.

Bischoff walks away and Alex shakes his head, before patting Sabin on the back and walking away.


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Chic Chic Bang Bang’ blares out to a mixed reaction and Mick Foley walks out, wearing his trademark attire as he has a cart load of weapons, such as steel chairs, kendo sticks, a garbage can, some crutches and a bag of thumb-tacks. Foley enters the ring and performs his ‘Bang Bang!’ pose for the crowd as he waits for his opponent.

Then, ‘Motorcity’ plays to a huge pop from the crowd and Chris Sabin walks out, wearing a thick black leather jacket with silver spikes on the shoulderpads, and a focused Sabin walks down the ramp and enters the ring, as climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring to pose for the crowd before climbing back down and coming face-to-face with Foley, then removing his jacket.

Hardcore Match
Chris Sabin Vs Mick Foley
The bell rings and the crowd pop as Chris Sabin and Mick Foley, instead of having a stare-down or locking up, immediately charge at each other and begin to fight, as Sabin and Foley exchange right hands and Sabin kicks Foley in the mid-section, running off the ropes, but Foley lifts Sabin up and brings him back down with a back body drop! Sabin gets back to his feet rather quickly and he runs at Mick but he takes Sabin down with a hip toss and then drops an elbow onto Sabin’s sternum. Foley gets Sabin back up and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, then running at Sabin but the former X Division Champion moves out of the way and Foley crashes into the turnbuckles, then being rolled up by Sabin with a schoolboy, 1...... 2...... Foley kicks out! Both competitors get back to their feet and they simultaneously look into the crowd who passionately chant ‘We want weapons!’ repeatedly and Sabin and Foley then begin to brawl, as Foley kicks Sabin in the gut and Irish whips him into the ropes, before running at him and clotheslining Sabin, and himself, out of the ring down to the concrete floor! The crowd cheer as both competitors take a breather whilst lying down before getting back up and Foley and Sabin exchange right hands again, until Sabin grabs Foley by the back of his shirt and hurls ‘The Hardcore Legend’ into the security rail!

Chris Sabin then sets his eyes on the cart of weapons nearby and he smirks, as he gets behind the cart, waiting for Mick Foley to get to his feet and when Foley is up, Sabin charges the cart towards Foley but Mick moves out of the way in the nick of time as the cart crashes into the security rail, and when Sabin turns around, Foley hits Sabin with an uppercut which sends ‘The Future’ back-pedalling. Foley grabs Sabin by the hair and knees him in the mid-section, rendering him docile as Sabin clutches his ribs and Foley takes a kendo stick from out of the cart, nailing Sabin in the spine with the kendo stick! Sabin sinks to his knees and Foley shoves him to the floor by his face, covering him, 1...... 2...... Sabin gets the shoulder up. Foley gets back up and stomps away at Sabin until getting him to his feet and hitting him with a few fists to the cranium, then throwing him down to the floor as they approach the announce table where Mike Tenay and Taz stand up and back off.

Foley gets Sabin up and he goes to slam his face against the announce table but Sabin fights out of it with a blow to Foley’s mid-section and he slams Foley’s skull against the announce table as ‘The Hardcore Legend’ falls back and drops to the ground. Sabin removes the top of the announce table and throws it to the floor, then walking back to the ring and searching underneath, revealing a ladder! Sabin takes the ladder towards the announce table and he sets it up in front of it, as Foley gets back to his feet and he low-blows Sabin! Foley lifts Sabin onto the announce table and hits him with a few blows to the cranium before beginning to climb up the ladder and when he is at the top of the ladder he uses his ‘Bang Bang!’ pose ... before jumping off the ladder, but Sabin moves, and Foley goes through the announce table!

A few minutes later, the action is back in the ring, as are a lot of weapons with steel chairs, kendo sticks, crutches, garbage cans, a bag of thumb-tacks and even Jeff Jarrett’s trademark guitar all scattered across the canvas. Chris Sabin and Mick Foley sluggishly exchange right hands, and Foley kicks Sabin in the mid-section, hooking his arms, before sending Sabin face-first into a steel chair with the Double-Arm DDT! Foley is exhausted though, and he drops to the canvas along with Sabin, eventually laying an arm over him, 1...... 2...... Sabin kicks out!! The crowd pop but Foley cannot believe it as he is on his knees and he looks at the referee in disbelief, running his hand through his hair before turning over Sabin, and Sabin is busted open! Foley struggles to his feet and he reaches into his pants ... revealing the sock!! Foley puts the sock on his hand, and he wipes the sock across Sabin’s blood-soaked forehead, before sitting Sabin up, and putting the bloodied sock inside Sabin’s mouth with the Mandible Claw! The crowd give a mixed reaction as Foley eventually withdraws the sock and takes it off, putting it back in his pants as he walks over to the corner of the ring, picking up the bag of thumb-tacks ... and emptying the bag of thumb-tacks, spreading them out across the canvas!

The crowd pop for the thumb-tacks and Mick Foley gets Chris Sabin up, but Sabin low-blows Foley and he begins to back-pedal towards the thumb-tacks, fortunately managing to maintain his balance, but Sabin grabs the guitar from nearby and gets to his feet, smashing the guitar over Foley’s head and sending Foley spine-first into the thumb-tacks!!! The crowd go nuts as Foley’s hands begin to shake as blood trickles from them and Sabin cautiously drags Foley away, taking a while to make the cover but eventually hooking Foley’s leg, 1...... 2...... 3-NO!!! FOLEY SOMEHOW GETS THE SHOULDER UP!!! THIS MAN IS SICK!!!

The ending to this barbaric Hardcore match comes when Chris Sabin gets Mick Foley to his feet and lifts him onto his shoulders in position for the Cradle Shock, with a garbage can in front of them, but Foley fights out of it after a few blows, and he lands on his feet in front of Sabin, as he kicks Sabin in the mid-section, hitting Sabin with a Double-Arm DDT on the Garbage can! Foley luckily lands on Sabin, as the cover is made! 1...... 2...... 3!!! Foley wins!
Winner – Mick Foley @ 11:42

‘Chic Chic Bang Bang’ blares out and Mick Foley has his hand raised by the referee and Foley, his arms covered in blood, pulls away and leans against the ropes with a smirk on his face as Alex Shelley rushes to the ring to check on his bloodied and beaten partner Chris Sabin. Then, ‘My World’ plays and Jeff Jarrett walks out with a guitar in hand, as he walks to the ring and enters the squared circle, standing behind Shelley who quickly turns around to face off with Jarrett. Foley yells at Jeff ‘Hit him! Hit him good, Jeff!’ and Jarrett raises his guitar up as Alex holds his hands up, telling Jarrett not to do it, and ‘The King of The Mountain’ remains stationary. Foley becomes impatient, and he pushes Jarrett forward, shouting ‘WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR, JEFF?!’ but Jeff turns around, and smashes the guitar over Foley’s head!

Foley is hit by a guitar for the second time tonight and the crowd pop as Jarrett looks down at Mick as if it was a mistake and he runs his hand through his hair, looking worried as Shelley leaves the ring and drags Sabin out by his legs, helping him up the ramp but then ‘Rockhouse’ plays and Hulk Hogan walks out onto the stage to a big pop!

Hogan: It looks like you took into account what I said to you last week, brother, and I can only commend you for that.

Pop from the crowd.

Hogan: But, whether that was a mistake or not, it doesn’t matter, Jeff, because just a few minutes ago, me and Eric made a match for Destination X.

Jarrett mouths ‘And?’ as Hogan continues.

Hogan: On March 21st, it’s gonna be a tag team match; the Motor City Machine Guns ... versus Mick Foley ... and YOU, Jeff Jarrett!

Huge pop, as Jarrett looks shocked and he immediately looks down at Foley, who has not moved since being hit by the guitar.

Hogan: It doesn’t stop there though, dude, because in that match, Eric Bischoff is gonna be the special guest referee.

Mixed reaction from the crowd.

Hogan: And there’s gonna be a special enforcer for that match ... ME!

Another astounding round of cheers, as ‘Rockhouse’ plays again and Hogan leaves, with Jarrett leaving the ring soon after as Foley remains inanimate on the canvas with blood, weapons and thumb-tacks scattered around the squared circle.

Tenay: Did you hear that, Taz?! Right after Jeff Jarrett smashes a guitar over Mick Foley’s head, Hulk Hogan comes out and announces that Jarrett and Foley will be teaming up at Destination X to face the Motor City Machine Guns!

Taz: And better yet, Eric Bischoff will the special guest referee for that match, and ... Hulk Hogan will be the special guest enforcer!

Tenay: What a way to start the second hour of Impact, ladies and gentlemen!

*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘War Machine’ plays to a lot of heat from the crowd and Rhino, arguably the most controversial man in TNA right now after what he did to D’Angelo Dinero and Taz last week, walks out, wearing a back-to-front baseball cap, a black ‘Gore!’ T-shirt and jeans. Rhino slowly walks down the ramp and enters the ring, demanding a microphone which he is given by a frightened SoCal Val.

Rhino: Before anything else, for my pleasure, I wanna see what happened last week again, so c’mon.

Rhino, and all of the fans, turn to the screen as footage of last week airs.

~ Rhino Attacks D’Angelo Dinero & Taz ~
However, Dinero cannot continue as, speak of the devil, Rhino, who has run down the ramp and entered the ring, slams a steel chair over the back of ‘The Pope’! Dinero goes straight down and Rhino begins to stomp away at Dinero and he then gets him to his feet. Dinero tries to fight back, his back in severe pain after that steel chair shot, and gets cheered by the crowd, but ‘The Man-Beast’ wrenches Dinero’s arm and pulls him in, almost taking the TNA Global Champion’s head off with a thunderous clothesline!

Rhino then momentarily leaves the ring and lifts up the ring apron, searching under the ring ... and revealing a table! Rhino lifts it up and looks at the table with a sadistic grin on his face before sliding the table into the ring and re-entering, setting the table up in the corner of the ring and waiting for Dinero to get up. Eventually, ‘The Pope’ gets up, standing in between Rhino and the table in the corner, and that’s the last place he wants to be, because Rhino runs straight at Dinero, and sends Dinero crashing through the table with a Gore!

Buried in the shards of the broken table is the TNA Global Champion D’Angelo Dinero and Rhino gets to his feet, taking Dinero’s Global Championship from the floor and holding it aloft as if it was his, which it could be at Destination X, to a lot of heat from the crowd, before dropping it and walking over to the motionless Dinero, shouting into his face ‘Who’s hippo now, bitch?! WHO’S HIPPO NOW?!’ before leaving the ring and walking up the ramp as ‘War Machine’ blares out.

Paramedics rush to the ring, some of them carrying a stretcher, and they check on D’Angelo Dinero, who hasn’t moved a muscle since that Gore from Rhino. They strap Dinero to the stretcher and take him out of the ring, but then Rhino, who is standing on the stage, turns around and sees ‘The Pope’ ... going back for more! The crowd boo Rhino as he storms downt he ramp and yells at the paramedics who quickly get out of the way as he grabs the stretcher from the floor which Dinero is strapped to ... and slams the stretcher with Dinero strapped to it against the steel ring-post! The stretcher falls to the concrete floor and ‘The Pope’ is well and truly out cold now if he wasn’t already as Rhino stands over him and raises both hands above his head before walking away, ignoring the boos of the crowd.

Taz stands up, removes his headset, and leaves the announce table, walking down the ramp towards D’Angelo Dinero, but Rhino steps in his way! Taz says to Rhino, ‘What the hell are you doin’, Terry? Get the hell outta’ here!’ but that doesn’t do anything, as Rhino grabs Taz by the shirt collar and shoves him away! There are a lot of ‘Ohhh’s in the crowd after that and Taz doesn’t back down, walking back towards Rhino and shouting at him ‘Hey, don’t pull that crap with me, Terry, I’m warnin’ you, al..’ but Taz isn’t able to finish ... as Rhino nails Taz with a Gore!!!

Taz is laid out on the ramp as Rhino stands over him with a smirk on his face as he pulls Taz back up by his shirt collar and pushes him down the steps that lead off the ramp and down to the concrete floor in front of the announce table where Taz should be right now. Rhino drags Taz over to the announce table and Mike Tenay quickly removes his headset and takes several steps back as Rhino removes the TV monitor from the announce table, and hits Taz in the skull with the TV monitor! This is getting plain distasteful now, and Taz is laid out on the concrete floor as D’Angelo Dinero is taken backstage on the stretcher and then more paramedics emerge, rushing over to where Taz is, and Taz is now bleeding from the head, as he is strapped to a stretcher and taken away as security guards get in the maniacal Rhino’s way.

------

The disturbing video comes to a close, and the crowd are furiously booing Rhino, who somehow is able to have a smile on his face after reminiscing on what he did to Dinero and Taz last week.

Rhino: Y’know, I’ve done a lot in my career; I’ve been ECW World Champion...

‘E – C – DUB!’ chants from the crowd.

Rhino: I’ve been TNA World Heavyweight Champion and I’ve faced some of the biggest legends in this business ... but I can safely say that last Monday was the greatest day of my career.

Major heat for Rhino, who doesn’t care about the reaction he gets.

Rhino: Actually, I’m sorry.

Mixed reaction.

Rhino: Last Monday was the greatest day of my entire life.

More heat for Rhino, who grins.

Rhino: And another great day is coming too, because on March 21st at Destination X I am going to take the TNA Global Championship from one of the two men that I beat the crap out of last week, ‘The Pope’ D’AngeloDinero.

Pop at the mention of Dinero.

Rhino: I made him look like as big an idiot as every single person in the Impact Zone tonight, and I am proud of it, I should get an award for what I did to Dinero especially as you can all thank me for the fact that Dinero isn’t here tonight after I kicked his ass in this ring and all around it.

The crowd continue to boo the ‘War Machine’.

Rhino: The only thing that makes that guy worth a damn is the TNA Global Championship, and I am going to be Global Champion after Destination X. But, there was another guy ... what was his name again? Oh yeah ... Taz.

The camera cut to ringside, where Taz is looking at the ring shaking his head.

Rhino: I picked up the stretcher which D’Angelo Dinero was on and I slammed it into that very ring-post and Taz, I would have done exactly the same to you, but you’re so damn fat not even two forklifts can lift you up.

More heat for Rhino, who turns his back to Taz and continues to talk.

Rhino: If this was ten years ago then I would have thought twice before doing what I did to you last week, but looking at you right now I do not regret it at all. The Taz I used to know would fight back, but yet you still sit there with Mike Tenay anddo some crappy announcing, not even thinking about trying to fight me because I haven’t changed from my ECW days but you have, I’m still the baddest son-of-a-b*tch in professional wrestling and I can still gore people in half. You, Taz, are a shell of your former self, you can’t even lift people up to hit a suplex and you can’t put your hands around somebody’s neck to choke them out anymore.

Taz is starting to get annoyed now, as Rhino nods his head at him but when he turns his back, Taz removes his head-set and quietly enters the ring as the crowd begin to go wild!

Rhino: At Destination X, you’re gonna sit at the announce table, you’re gonna watch me beat D’Angelo Dinero and become Global Champ-

Before Rhino can continue, Taz grabs Rhino and locks him in the Tazmission!! The crowd go nuts as by looking at Taz’s eyes you can tell that he wants to kill Rhino right now, but fortunately for Rhino, ‘The War Machine’ slips out of Taz’s grasps before he can fully lock in the Tazmission and he staggers up the ramp, getting insane heat from the crowd! Taz shakes his head in disappointment as Rhino backs away and shouts at Taz ‘No! Don’t even go there, you pile of crap!’ before eventually disappearing behind the curtain as Taz slowly leaves the ring and heads back to where the announce table was before it was broke by Mick Foley, sitting next to Mike Tenay having almost got his hands on Rhino.

Tenay: Can I just say, Taz, that when you got in that ring and got your hands on Rhino, even just for a few seconds before he got away, it brought a smile to my face because I wanted you to choke the hell out of him!

Taz: You and I both, Professor. I’m sure Pope would feel the same too.

Tenay: Coming up next, in a dream match of sorts, it’s Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle one-on-one!

We see a split-screen of Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle walking to the ring in different locations for their match, before we go to a...


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Gold Metal’ plays and Kurt Angle walks out to a big pop from the crowd. Angle, his jacket hood casting a shadow over his face, points to the ceiling as his pyro goes off before walking down the ramp and entering the ring, removing his jacket and waiting for his opponent to arrive.

Then, ‘Modest’ blares out and the crowd goes wild as the lights dim and are tinted green and Jeff Hardy walks out, performing his pose making his trademark hand gesture as his pyro goes off before making his way down the ramp, high-fiving several fans before sliding into the ring and jumping to the second rope, posing for the crowd again before climbing down and standing opposite Angle.

Singles Match
Jeff Hardy Vs Kurt Angle
The bell rings and Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle both step forward, having a stare-down before stepping back and circling each other around the ring, then jumping into the lock-up at the same time. Angle forces Hardy into the corner and is soon told to back away by the referee, which he does and Jeff comes out of the corner and they lock up again, as Angle wrenches Hardy’s arm, getting him in a wristlock, and he then moves behind Jeff, taking him down by the legs and getting him in a headlock. Hardy manages to get to his feet and he pushes Angle into the ropes, as Angle comes back and Jeff lies down on the mat as Kurt jumps over him and runs off the opposite ropes and Hardy then springs back up, hitting Angle with a spinning heel kick! Jeff gets straight back up and Angle recovers quickly, as they both pause and circle each other around the ring again, before running at each other and Kurt wrenches Jeff’s arm, but Hardy fights out of it after some blows to Angle’s mid-section and he then runs off the ropes, charging towards Angle but ‘The Wrestling Machine’ hits ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ with a back body drop! Jeff gets back up and Kurt kicks him in the mid-section, hitting him with a few right hands before Irish whipping Hardy into the corner of the ring and running at him but Jeff runs out of the way as Angle manages to stop himself and he turns around, but Jeff runs towards the opposite corner and jumps to the top rope, going for his signature Whisper In The Wind manoeuvre but Angle effortlessly steps out of the way as Jeff crashes into the mat!

Kurt Angle looks down at Jeff Hardy and laughs as he stomps away at Hardy and subsequently gets him to his feet, hitting him with more right hands before Irish whipping Jeff into the ropes. Angle goes for a clothesline but Jeff avoids having his head taken off as he ducks it and runs off the opposite ropes, running at Kurt and taking the Olympic Gold Medallist down with a clothesline of his own! Jeff makes the cover, 1...... Kurt quickly gets the shoulder up. Jeff runs his hands through his wet hair before getting Angle up and taking him into the corner, slamming his face into the top turnbuckle multiple times before lifting him to the top rope. Jeff climbs up there and he gets Angle in a front face-lock, lifting Kurt up and looking like he’s going to go for the Superplex but Angle fights out of it, hitting Jeff with a few blows to the mid-section and Hardy falls off the top rope, landing on his feet on the ring apron and Angle jumps off the top rope, but Jeff grabs Kurt by the head and jumps off the ring apron, driving Angle’s face into the rope! Kurt falls to the mat and Jeff climbs back onto the ring apron, jumping over the ropes and hitting Angle with a leg drop! Jeff makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Angle kicks out.

Jeff Hardy gets Kurt Angle to his feet and gets Angle in a front face-lock, lifting him off his feet and into the air in position for a suplex, but Kurt manages to slip out of it and land on his feet behind Hardy, grabbing Jeff by his waist and nailing Hardy with a German Suplex! Angle holds onto Jeff and he pulls him up to his feet again, hitting Hardy with another German Suplex and he gets Jeff up once more to hit him with a third and final German Suplex! Angle quickly makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Hardy gets the shoulder up. Angle gets to his feet and he stomps at Jeff a few times before climbing to the top rope, his back turned to the ring, and Angle goes for a Moonsault ... but Hardy rolls out of the way with his last bit of energy, as Angle crashes into the mat, hitting a picture-perfect Moonsault but not doing the most important thing; hitting Hardy with it.

Both competitors lie motionlessly on the canvas as the crowd applaud the effort of these two warriors and we see a replay of Kurt Angle attempting the Moonsault but missing it, and eventually both Angle and Jeff Hardy struggle to their feet, as Kurt and Jeff sluggishly exchange right hands, as Hardy kicks Angle in the mid-section and goes for the Twist Of Fate, but Kurt pushes him away and he goes for the Angle Slam on Jeff, but Hardy lands on his feet behind Angle and he hits ‘The American Hero’ with a Russian leg sweep, the back of Angle’s cranium bouncing off the mat! Jeff makes the cover, 1...... 2...... Angle kicks out! Hardy slowly struggles to his feet and he gets Kurt up, Irish whipping Angle into the corner of the ring and then running at him but Kurt lifts Jeff up and drops him on his feet on the ring apron, and Angle then hits Hardy in his lower legs with a dropkick, as Jeff’s face crashes into the ring apron and he falls to the concrete floor! Angle is hot on the pursuit, as he leaves the ring and gets Hardy up, driving him spine-first into the ring apron and when hurling Jeff face-first into the steel ring-post as Jeff falls to the concrete floor! Angle then gets ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ back in the ring and covers Jeff immediately, 1...... 2...... Hardy gets the shoulder up!

Kurt Angle gets to his feet and he looks around the Impact Zone with the fans, most of whom are on their feet, loving this match and they go nuts when Angle removes the straps from his singlet and lets out a reverberating roar which can be heard throughout the Arena, grabbing Jeff Hardy’s leg, and locking in the Ankle Lock! However, Hardy rolls over and takes hold of Kurt’s legs, making the cover! 1...... 2...... Angle kicks out! Both competitors get back to their feet and Jeff quickly kicks Angle in the mid-section and hitting the Twist Of Fate!! A mixed ovation fills the Impact Zone with the Hardy die-hard fans cheering and the Angle die-hard fans booing, but Jeff can’t capitalize, as both competitors lie on the mat, and Hardy eventually makes it to his feet with assistance from the ropes, ever-so slowly climbing to the top rope, and Jeff goes for the Swanton Bomb for the first time in this spectacle of a match ... but Angle moves out of the way! Hardy crashes into the canvas and Angle then crawls across the mat, grabbing Jeff by the ankle once again ... and applying the Ankle Lock again!

The crowd pop and this time Hardy can’t escape as he is exhausted and Angle has an irresistible grip on Jeff’s ankle, as Kurt roars and screams ‘TAP OUT! TAP OUT!’ as some fans chant that as well, but Jeff refuses to give up, as both of his arms are reached out and he tries to reach the ropes, but he is slap-bang in the centre of the ring. You cannot deny the heart and courage of Hardy, as ‘The Charismatic Enigma’ ever-so slightly edges his way across the ring towards the ropes, and Jeff is within touching distance of the ropes, Hardy is about to grab the bottom rope ... but Angle drags Jeff back into the centre of the ring! Angle re-applies his grip on the ankle and Hardy tries again to get to the ropes but he can’t, and when it looks like there is no hope left, Hardy taps out!!
Winner – Kurt Angle @ 13:25

‘Gold Metal’ blares out and the crowd pop as Kurt Angle eventually gets to his feet after letting go of Jeff Hardy’s ankle, and he has his hand raised by the referee, as Angle leans back against the ropes and with his entire body covered in sweat, he raises his hands above his head with a grin on his face. Angle walks back into the middle of the ring and looks down at Hardy, who is trying to get up, and Kurt extends his hand to Jeff and helps him up, as they shake hands and embrace to cheers from the crowd. The two competitors raise each other’s hands in the air before the victorious Angle leaves the ring and Jeff looks on in disappointment with the crowd chanting ‘That was awesome!’

Tenay: What a match! If anybody had any doubt whatsoever in their mind that TNA isn’t wrestling, then they will be silenced after that spectacle between Jeff Hardy and Kurt Angle!

Taz: Angle may have won that match after making Hardy tap out to the Ankle Lock, but both of them were winners, and all of the TNA fans who had the privilege of seeing that were winners too, Professor.

Tenay: We’ve seen two great matches tonight with Angle and Hardy and Chris Sabin and Mick Foley’s Hardcore match, and we’ve got another one coming up next, our main event; The TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, ‘Mr. Monday Night’ Rob Van Dam and ‘The Icon’ Sting against ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’ Samoa Joe, Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson! Don’t go anywhere, folks!


*Commercial Break*



Back on Impact, ‘Hungry Like A Wolfe’ plays and the crowd boo as Desmond Wolfe walks out, holding hands with his glamorous valet Chelsea. Wolfe gives the fans his signature two-fingered salute as he saunters down the ramp and enters the ring, holding down the middle rope for Chelsea to enter the ring as several camera shots go off at that moment and Wolfe ‘salutes’ the crowd.

Then, ‘Mic Checked’ blares out and the lights go out in the Arena as suddenly a spotlight shines down on the stage and Mr. Anderson is standing there with a smirk on his face and a microphone in one hand and the bloodied black baseball bat in the other which he used to assault Sting last week. Wearing his ‘Pro Wrestling is real, people are fake’ T-shirt, Anderson introduces himself once he arrives in the ring after walking down the ramp.

Anderson: Ladies and gentlemen, tonight you will be able to save yourselves $39.95 because you will have yourselves a preview of Destination X as I dismantle the man you idiots call Sting.

Pop at the mention of Sting.

Anderson: But why am I talking about him? Let’s talk about the most important thing going today – moi. I weighed in this morning at two-hundred-and-fourty-six pounds... I hail from GREEN – BAY – WIS – CON – SIN...

Heat for Anderson.

Anderson: The only icon you shall find in Total Nonstop Anderson ... MIIIIIISSTTAAAHHHH ... AAAAANNNDDEERRSSOONN!!!

More heat for Anderson, as he climbs to the second rope in the corner of the ring.

Anderson: AAAAAANNNDDDEEEERSSONNNN!!!

Anderson lets go of the microphone as it reels back up to the ceiling and Anderson and Wolfe wait for the third man of their trio.

Then, ‘Nation Of Violence’ plays and the #1 contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, Samoa Joe, walks out, a white towel over his shoulders. Wearing half black, half turqoise trunks, Joe walks down the ramp and enters the ring, not posing for the crowd or anything of that nature as he stands alongside his two tag team partners.

‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out to a huge pop from the crowd and Rob Van Dam walks out with a smirk on his face, as he performs his ‘RVD’ thumb taunt in sync with his pyro before walking down the ramp and entering the ring, climbing to the second rope in the corner of the ring and posing for the fans again before climbing back down.

The lights go out and ‘Slay Me’ plays, as Sting walks out when the lights brighten ever-so slightly, to an overwhelming ovation. Wearing his long black trench-coat, Sting shouts ‘It’s showtime, folks!’ as he makes his way down the ramp, and as soon as he enters the ring with his baseball bat, Mr. Anderson leaves the ring, getting as far away as possible from ‘The Icon’.

Then, ‘Get Ready To Fly’ blares out and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles walks out to a big pop, the hood of his jacket casting a shadow over his face. With his title around his waist, Styles flicks back his hood and outstretches his arms as his pyro goes off before he walks down the ramp and enters the ring, posing for the crowd again before joining his tag team partners, as AJ and Sting climb out to the ring apron, as do Anderson and Wolfe, and it looks like RVD and Samoa Joe will be starting off this huge six-man tag team match.

Six-Man Tag Team Match
AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam & Sting Vs Desmond Wolfe, Mr. Anderson & Samoa Joe
The bell rings and Rob Van Dam and Samoa Joe circle each other around the ring in a vigilant manner, Van Dam maintaining his typical confidence and serenity and Joe keeping a straight face, firmly focused on this match. The two competitors lock up, and Joe is determined to assert his superior strength and size, but RVD refuses to be a push-over, and he forces Joe into the corner of the ring, as a surprised Joe pushes Van Dam away and they approach each other again, ready to lock up, but Joe has other ideas as he kicks RVD firmly in the mid-section and brings him to the mat with a few clubbing blows to the back. Joe stomps away at Van Dam’s spine and he pushes RVD over onto his back, hitting him in the sternum with an elbow drop and getting back up, hitting another one before getting Rob to his feet and Irish whipping him into the corner of the ring. Joe runs at Van Dam but RVD moves out of the way and Joe is able to stop himself before crashing into the turnbuckles, and Van Dam looks to turn the tables, charging towards ‘The Samoan Submission Machine’, but out of the blue, Joe almost takes RVD’s head off with a superkick! Joe looks down at Van Dam and even smirks, then making the cover, 1...... 2...... Van Dam kicks out. Joe gets RVD back up, and he Irish whips him into the corner of the ring where Joe’s two tag team partners, Desmond Wolfe and Mr. Anderson, are stood and Joe, after stomping Van Dam in the mid-section a few times, tags Anderson into the match.

Mr. Anderson cockily enters the ring and he stands in front of Rob Van Dam who is clutching his ribs, as Anderson slaps Van Dam across the face a few times and then grabs ‘The Whole F’n Show’ by the hair, throwing him into the centre of the ring and then running at him, but RVD ducks out of the way of an attempted clothesline from Anderson and then takes him down with a leg sweep! Van Dam looks down at Anderson and then runs off the ropes, twisting around in mid-air and hitting TNA’s resident loud-mouth with a leg drop! RVD covers Anderson, 1...... 2...... Anderson gets the shouder up. RVD gets Anderson to his feet and Irish whips him into the corner of the ring, bombarding him with kicks to the legs and mid-section and after an acrobatic kick to the head of Anderson, he hangs against the ropes, and Van Dam clotheslines Anderson over the ropes and out of the ring as Anderson crashes to the concrete floor! Anderson struggles to his feet and Van Dam runs off the ropes, charging across the ring and sending Anderson spine-first into the security rail with a Baseball slide!

Rob Van Dam then climbs out onto the ring apron and with Mr. Anderson only being kept on his feet by the security rail, Van Dam jumps off the ring apron and hits Anderson with a kick to the skull! Anderson falls to the floor and RVD soon gets him back in the ring, making the cover, 1...... 2...... Anderson kicks out. Van Dam gets back up and stands over Anderson, performing his ‘RVD’ taunt which gets a big pop from the crowd before running off the ropes and rolling across the mat, then going for his patented Rolling Thunder but Anderson gets the knees up and Van Dam’s back drive into the knees, as RVD feels the effects of that and staggers backwards, managing to stay on his feet, but he doesn’t stay up for long though, as Anderson gets back up and nails Van Dam with a clothesline!

Mr. Anderson stomps away at Rob Van Dam and then turns him over, taking Van Dam by the legs and locking in the Boston Crab! The agony on RVD’s face is evident as he cries out in pain and desperately tries to get to the ropes, but the expression on the face of Anderson tells an entirely different story as he has a sadistic grin on his face and he looks back at Van Dam, wanting him to tap out, but ‘Mr. Monday Night’ refuses to give in, and after edging across the ring, RVD is able to make it to the ropes! Anderson refuses to let go and the referee makes the count, as Anderson finally lets go of Van Dam’s legs a split-second before the count of five but when RVD lets go of the ropes Anderson drags him back into the middle of the ring and tries to turn him over to lock in the Boston Crab once again, but RVD pushes Anderson away with his legs into the corner of the ring and Van Dam springs up, running towards Anderson and jumping onto him, hitting Anderson with a Monkey Flip and sending the loud-mouth across the ring! Both competitors lie on the canvas and the crowd chant ‘RVD! RVD! RVD!’ as Van Dam and Anderson both begin to crawl across the canvas towards their respective corners where their tag team partners are situtated. Anderson tags Desmond Wolfe into the match for the first time so far, but RVD tags the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles into the match for the first time too, and with two fresh competitors in the ring the action picks up in pace, as Styles immediately takes Wolfe down with a clothesline! Wolfe gets back up and AJ takes him down with another clothesline, and when the Englishman gets back to his feet once more, Styles hits him with a picture-perfect dropkick!

The crowd pop and AJ Styles quickly springs back up, covering Desmond Wolfe, 1...... Wolfe gets the shoulder up. Styles gets up and gets Wolfe to his feet as well, Irish whipping Wolfe against the ropes. Wolfe comes back and AJ lies across the canvas as Desmond jumps over him and runs off the opposite ropes and Styles then leap-frogs Wolfe, then going for a clothesline but Desmond ducks it. AJ runs off the ropes and comes running at Wolfe, but Wolfe nails Styles with a thunderous Powerslam! Wolfe gets to his feet and stands over Styles as he gives the fans his two-fingered salute which draws a lot of heat from the crowd, before Wolfe grabs AJ by the legs and says ‘Get ready to fly, wanker’ before catapulting Styles across the ring and face-first into the top turnbuckle in the corner of the ring! A disorientated AJ groggily back-pedals and Wolfe lifts him off his feet, hitting ‘The Phenomenal One’ with an atomic drop and then hitting the TNA World Heavyweight Champion with a bulldog. Wolfe then runs off the ropes and hits Styles with a knee drop to the skull before getting up and climbing to the top rope. Wolfe eagerly and impatiently waits for AJ to get to his feet and when Styles gets up, Wolfe flies off the top rope, going for a Cross Body, but Styles turns the tables on the cocky Brit and hits him in mid-air with a dropkick to the mid-section!

The conclusion to this Six-Man Tag Team Match comes when Mr. Anderson and Rob Van Dam are the legal men in the ring and Van Dam struggles to his feet as he moves towards the corner of the ring to make the tag, but Anderson grabs RVD by his leg, stalling him, but ‘The Whole F’n Show’ turns around and nails Anderson with an Enzuguiri, sending Anderson back-pedalling and then tagging Sting into the match with his heated rival Anderson for the first time!! The crowd go nuts and Anderson, who is being kept up by the ropes, looks petrified, as he immediately tags Desmond Wolfe into the match and leaves the ring, running around the ring and trying to get away, but Sting tags AJ Styles into the match and leaves, running after Anderson as he runs backstage with ‘The Icon’ in hot pursuit! Wolfe is distracted by those events and Styles turns him around, kicking him in the mid-section, lifting his legs up, and nailing Wolfe with the Styles Clash!!! AJ then tags RVD back into the match and he climbs to the top rope, flying off the top rope and hitting his rival Wolfe with the Five-Star Frog Splash!!! RVD makes the cover, 1...... 2...... 3!!!
Winners – AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam & Sting @ 15:13

‘Whole F’n Show’ blares out and the crowd go wild as Rob Van Dam gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee, and AJ Styles enters the ring to have his hand raised as well. Van Dam and Styles embrace and raise each other’s hands aloft, as RVD climbs to the top rope and poses for the crowd in one corner of the ring and AJ does the same in the opposite corner.

Tenay: What a main event we just had, and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles, Rob Van Dam and Sting are victorious, they deserved this, Taz.

Taz: They sure did, Professor, and-

Taz stops talking when Samoa Joe enters the ring and pulls RVD down from the top rope, lifting him up, and nailing Van Dam with the Muscle Buster!! The crowd boo Joe, and Styles doesn’t know what just happened, but he does when Joe pulls AJ down from the top rope and lifts him up, hitting Styles with the Muscle Buster as well!!

Tenay: Damnit, that was uncalled for! Who do you think you are, Samoa Joe?!

‘Nation Of Violence’ plays and Samoa Joe calls for Styles’ TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt, which an anxious SoCal Val gives him, and Joe stands tall over AJ with the title in his hands, as he holds it up like his own, and it could well be his after Destination X in thirteen days’ time...

Taz: Samoa Joe has made it clear to AJ Styles and all of these fans that he is for real, and he will stop at nothing to become the TNA World Heavyweight Champion at Destination X!

Tenay: Unfortunate, when you think of the fact that he launched an unprovoked attack on both Styles and Rob Van Dam, but true. Joe has one foot on the top of the mountain in TNA, and he could reach the pinnacle at Destination X on March 21st at the expense of AJ Styles. Goodnight, everybody.

Will the Nation become the World? ...
