BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!
TNA: PAY-PER-VIEW CUTS/ANNOUNCEMENTS, SEVERAL BIG SIGNINGS, MORE ON 3-HOUR IMPACT

TNA have taken a stern approach on Pay-Per-Views going into this new era. With the idea being thrown around that Pay-Per-Views in professional wrestling, TNA have seriously cut back on it's PPV content, cutting the PPV calendar down to just four shows a year. The four shows will be the supposed 'big 4' TNA Pay-Per-Views: Genesis, Lockdown, Slammiversary and Bound For Glory.

The idea behind this is that this will allow for longer builds to shows, making each show more meaningful and, hopefully, increasing the buy-rates of each show in the process. They will, however, be accompanied by at least four 3-hour Impact specials (one of which is rumored to be a Destination X-type show) as well as a special currently unnamed Saturday Night show that will be somewhat akin to WWE's Saturday Night's Main Event and will help bridge the lengthy gap between June's Slammiversary and October's Bound For Glory.

The Pay-Per-View dates were also announced, along with the venues for both Genesis and Lockdown, with Genesis taking place on February 10th at the Convention Center in Forth Worth, Texas with Lockdown hitting the Miami Arena in Miami, Florida on April 21st. A lot of debate has already been brought up about whether or not the Miami Arena, a venue with a capacity maxing out at around 15,000, is a building that TNA will be able to even half fill but company officials are confident that they'll be able to draw more than 12,000 fans. Slammiversary will be happening on June 16th while Bound For Glory occurs on October 13th. While Genesis has been moved forward to February this year, it will retain it's January slot from 2014 onwards.

Several big names have all been signed up by TNA in they begin to re-embellish the roster following the roster cull just a week ago. Former WWE Stars John Hennigan (John Morrison), Carlos Colon (Carlito), Dave Finlay, Natalie Neidhart (Natalya) and Elizabeth Carolan (Beth Phoenix) have all been signed up for this new era of TNA as have former Knockouts Ayako Hamada, Velvet Sky & Angelina Love.

Sky had only just recently parted ways with the company but, with the news of Shane McMahon's investment in the company and perhaps an increase in the money being offered to her, she has agreed to return to the promotion. She will be followed back in by her former tag team partner, Angelina Love, who had also only parted with the company in recent times, having been granted her release back in July.

Hennigan and Colon are both expected to be big stars for the company while Neidhart and Carolan, who had both recently been released from WWE due to issues with the creative direction of the companies women's division, are expected to be major players in the Knockouts division. Hamada will be making her return to the company after just 2 years while Dave Finlay is expected to be used more as a trainer than an in-ring competitor.

To top off all of that, another big name has been signed up by TNA: Michael Buffer. The renowned Boxing Ring announcer has signed up to announcer for the four TNA Pay-Per-View events in 2013, with a potential contract extension in the offing should TNA wish to keep him attached to the company. Michael Buffer will be best known to wrestling fans for his time announcing in WCW and creating the catchphrase "let's get ready to rumble".

As we move ever closer to the return of Impact, the Main Event of the show has been made official and Jeff Hardy's challenger for the World Title has been named: James Storm. Storm managed to defeat Bobby Roode in a match of the year candidate at Bound For Glory and has set himself up as one of the companies top stars. It sounds like they have big things planned for him in 2013 and beyond.

In his first match back since he broke his neck, Jesse Sorensen returns in a match that will see him challenge Zema Ion for the TNA X-Division Championship. It was Zema Ion that Jesse Sorensen was facing when he first injured his neck and Ion has played up the idea that he Sorensen out, building Sorensen as a sympathetic baby-face and Ion as nasty heel.

The final announcement regarding the 3-Hour Impact is that a confrontation is set to occur between King Mo and Bobby Roode. Following Roode's defeat to James Storm at Bound For Glory, Roode has been very vocal on impactwrestling.com as he claimed that King Mo 'screwed him over' and that he will 'put him in his place' so TNA decided to give him the opportunity to do just that as the two go face to face for the first time since the biggest Pay-Per-View of the year.

There is also a lot of talk about debuting some of the companies new signings at the show but nothing has been officially yet. We'll bring you more news as soon as we have it.



Side Notes: Just one/two more of these, show preview and then I'll post the show. I'm anxious to get into the meat of things with this myself.

BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!
BATISTA SIGNS FOR TNA, 3-HOUR IMPACT UPDATE

The wrestling world is buzzing as TNA has announce the signing of Dave Bautista, better known as Batista of WWE fame. This is thought of as the biggest coup the company has pulled off since Kurt Angle debuted in late-2006. Batista is said to be very excited to be working with the talents in TNA. It had been public knowledge that Batista had become disillusioned with WWE during the latter part of his last run with the company, eventually leaving to pursue an acting and MMA career. His return to professional wrestling, and to TNA in particular, could suggest he had negotiated with WWE about a return to the company he was a multi-time World Champion in.

Batista is known to be close friends with WWE's Executive VP of Talent Relations and Vince McMahon's heir apparent, Triple H. The fact that he has gone to TNA could certainly end up souring that friendship. Triple H recently welcomed the idea of a return to the company for Batista claiming "Dave and I have always been on good terms. I'd be more than happy to see him come back for another run in the company." The news that he has signed with the opposition certainly won't please the folk in Titan Towers. Despite that, Batista is reportedly very excited about joining TNA claiming that he "relishes a challenge and that facing WWE will be the toughest battle of his career".

In further announcements regarding the 3-Hour Impact Special have been made, adding to an already impressive looking show. John Hennigan's debut match has been made official as he teams with AJ Styles, Kurt Angle & Rob Van Dam to take on the World Tag Team Champions Of The World, Austin Aries and Joey Ryan in a huge eight man tag team match.

Two other matches that have been added to the card include a special attraction singles contest between Mr Anderson and the returning D'Angelo Dinero in a match that could see the winner in contention for a Television Title shot and a tag team match that will see TNA debutants Natalie Neidhart and Beth Scarlet (the former Beth Phoenix) team up against Rosita & Sarita.

The final match set to occur on the show is an X-Division fatal four way match between Doug Williams, Kenny King, Sonjay Dutt and Chris Sabin, making his first TNA appearance since his injury earlier in the year.

Other news includes the announcement that Hulk Hogan & Sting will call out the members of Aces & 8s to try and end this conflict, once and for all. The group have been a part of TNA storylines since June and many in the company feel the reveal will need to occur sooner rather than later.

Last, but by no means least, having just signed to join the company, Dave Batista will be making his TNA Impact debut. No news as to whether this will be in a match, as an in-ring promo or otherwise but the news that Batista will be a part of TNA's first show in 2013 is sure to help boost the interest in the show to great heights.

Default Re: TNA 2013: A Revolution

JANUARY 3RD IMPACT PREVIEW & NOTES
With TNA gearing up for it's first Impact since the companies biggest show of the year and huge company overhaul, expect big things on this special 3-hour edition of Impact. Expect storyline progression with the Aces & 8s angle with some in TNA pushing for the groups big reveal to occur on this very show. The chances of that are relatively unlikely though, especially considering the group have been off TV for a while. It is highly likely, however, that the group unveiled themselves before TNA's next Pay-Per-View, Genesis, as the talks are of having the group face-off with a TNA team in a big eight man tag team match as one of the show's Main Event matches. With Hogan & Sting being the two to call the group out on Impact, those two are also expected to take part in the 8-man with management feeling that having other workers in the match will cover up Hogan's injuries.

• With Dave Batista making his very first appearance for the company on the show, his position on the show is also a hot-topic of debate. Many feel like Dave should somehow involve himself in the Main Event, with talks of a run-in leading to a triple threat or fatal four way (also involving Austin Aries) or even a confrontation with the winner being thrown about as potential ideas. There is also a strong push to keep Batista away from title contention for a short period to allow him the chance to establish a run in the company with a match against Kurt Angle possibly being in the offing. This much is for sure, Dave will come face to face with his first opponent in the company on the show, whoever that may end up being.

• What to do with the two title matches is also a topic of hot debate for the backstage. Many believe that beating James Storm in another World Title match could seriously damage whatever momentum he has left behind him. On the other side of things, they belief is that taking the title off of Hardy in his first match since winning the belt seems a little irrational considering he's one of the biggest name's the company has. They seem to have booked themselves into a corner with this match which is why the idea of a Batista run-in is being thrown around, to help both guys save face. While the World Title is a big point of discussion, the X-Division Title situation is also up in the air. Many believe Jesse Sorensen should win the X-Division Championship to conclude this feel good story but there are others who believe Sorensen isn't quite ready for a run as champion yet. Ultimately, the decision on who walks out with the X-Division Championship could come down to the wire with management nowhere near agreeing on a winner.

• Former WWE stars, John Hennigan (Morrison), Beth Scarlet (Phoenix) and Natalie Neidhart (Natalya), are all joining Batista in making their debuts with the company. The rumors surround Scarlet & Neidhart are that the two will be brought in as 'dominant wrestlers', something similar to the "Diva's Of Doom" run, which will lead them into a tag team feud against two other Knockouts. While the company is reportedly very high on both women, they are especially high on Beth and are likely to push her towards a singles title run at some point. Hennigan is also expected to have a good run with the company. Being brought in as a face and being teamed with three of the companies biggest names, he's expected to feud with Joey Ryan with some kind of "Hollywood" twist to the angle since both guys are considered to be "primadonna-like" with their on-screen characters and with Tara revealing Joey Ryan is her on-screen boyfriend, Miss Tessmacher is expected to align herself with Hennigan, be it simply as a manager/tag team partner or as his girlfriend.

• The King Mo/Bobby Roode confrontation is expected to help set-up a match between the two at Genesis. When names were thrown around as to who Mo's first match should be against, Bobby Roode was one of the first names to come up. Management feel the beginnings of a feud are already in place due to the outcome of the Roode-Storm match at Bound For Glory and they believe Roode will be ably suited to help cover up Mo's flaws should he struggle in the ring. Mo is reportedly very excited to be working with Roode even going as far as to call Roode a "modern day Ric Flair". High praised indeed.

• Finally, Styles & Angle are expected to challenge the World Tag Team Champions Of The World for the Tag Team Titles again at Genesis in a stipulation match that will be their "last chance" to challenge for the gold. Expect the winner of the fatal four way to challenge the winner of the X-Division Championship match, with Sabin being touted as the man to challenge Ion, should he retain, and Doug Williams being touted for the shot if Sorensen wins the belt.

Preview For January 3rd TNA Impact

Preview:
In the first defence of his championship since winning it at Bound For Glory, Jeff Hardy takes on his number one contender, James Storm. Coming off the back of a huge victory at Bound For Glory himself, James Storm has firmly established himself as one of the top challengers to the World Heavyweight Championship and impressed TNA officials enough to be granted a title opportunity. With two of TNA's top superstars competing for the companies top prize, this contest is sure to be a great way to kick off this huge new era for TNA!

Dave Batista's Impact Debut
Preview:
One of the biggest name's professional wrestling has come to TNA: Dave Batista makes his Impact debut! Being known for speak his mind more often than, Batista will surely have plenty to say about TNA and his position in the company going forward. Is Batista going to attempt to stake his claim to the World Title? Will he call out whoever feels like they're up to the task of toppling him? Or does he have a more specific target in mind?

Hulk Hogan & Sting call out Aces & 8s
Preview:
Having first debuted more than six months ago, Aces & 8s have spent that time running rough shot over the TNA roster, attacking whoever and whenever they wanted. TNA General Manager, Hulk Hogan, and TNA Hall Of Famer, Sting, both plan on putting that run of terror to an end when they call out the group for a face to face confrontation. It's a bold move considering they will be outnumbered but do Hogan & Sting have a plan for the group? This just can't end well.

AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, RVD & John Hennigan W/Tessmacher Vs WTTCOTW, Austin Aries & Joey Ryan W/Tara
Preview:
In his first match since losing the World Heavyweight Championship, Austin Aries teams with the World Tag Team Champions Of The World and Joey Ryan to take on AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam and TNA newcomer John Hennigan. With the possibility of a future Tag Team Title shot for Styles and Angle as well as Aries inevitable World Title rematch, this is a huge match in determining where each of these superstars are heading to next. RVD will have a lot to prove having unsuccessfully challenged Zema Ion for the X-Division Title at Bound For Glory while Hennigan and Ryan will both feel like they have a lot to prove in their respective first match with a signed TNA contract and let's not forget about the tag team champions! Kazarian and Daniels come off their biggest victory as a team with a load of momentum behind them and they'll certainly want to keep that going here.

TNA X-Division Championship: Zema Ion (c) Vs Jesse Sorensen
Preview:
After suffering a broken neck, Jesse Sorensen returns to the ring to challenge for the X-Division Championship against the man who injured him: Zema Ion. Sorensen's road to recovery has been well documented but Ion has shown no ounce of remorse for the former Football star. Sorensen is hoping that his comeback will have a fairytale ending as he realises his dream of becoming the X-Division Champion but I'm sure Zema Ion will have more than a few tricks up his sleeve to try and stop that from happening.

King Mo/Bobby Roode Confrontation
Preview:
Bound For Glory saw Bobby Roode leaving highly frustrated by his inability to pick up a victory over James Storm. Roode has decided to lay the blame firmly on the shoulders of the Special Enforcer of that match, King Mo. Following the posting of several videos on impactwrestling.com, Roode claims King Mo 'screwed him' out of the victory. Management decided that best way to solve this would be to put these two men face to face in front of the whole world and, on this special 3-hour edition of Impact, that's exactly what will happen.

Mr Anderson Vs D'Angelo Dinero
Preview:
Mr Anderson will feel he has a lot to prove after being overlooked by Sting for the match against Aces & 8s at Bound For Glory as he goes up against D'Angelo Dinero in what is sure to be a hotly contested affair. Both men have been involved in the World Title picture in recent times and will surely want to get back there as soon as possible. The winner of this contest will surely go some way towards proving he deserves another opportunity at glory.

Rosita & Sarita Vs Beth Scarlet & Natalie Neidhart
Preview:
TNA newcomers Beth Scarlet & Natalie Neidhart make their debuts against the team of Rosita & Sarita. With Scarlet and Neidhart promising to make there mark, a win here would go a long way towards establishing themselves as contenders to the Knockouts Championship.

Doug Williams Vs Chris Sabin Vs Kenny King Vs Sonjay Dutt
Preview:
Chris Sabin will make his return to the ring after several months out injured in this special X-Division four way match. Having impressed in the months leading up to Bound For Glory; Kenny King, Sonjay Dutt and Doug Williams are all looking to establish themselves as contenders to the X-Division Championship. Whoever wins will surely go a long way towards earning themselves an X-Division Title shot.

Side Notes: First show. Didn't take as long as I expected. I know it probably needs a bit more colour to it and I'll try and work on that with future shows.

Hope you guys enjoy the show and feel free to leave feedback/comments/criticisms, etc (Oh and do let me know if you spot any coding eras!). It will be returned!

So, without further ado, enjoy the show!

(January 3rd 2013, Live from The Impact Zone, Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida)
TNA 3-Hour Impact Special

**A Revolution Begins**



Quote:
~#~#~#~#~ OPENING VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

The video package opens up to a black screen with just the TNA logo slowly moving forwards on the screen.

Narrator: Sometimes, a revolution takes place.

We see shots from famous worldly revolutions that occurred across the world as Carl Orff's "O Fortuna" bursts into action over the flashing images of fighting and tyranny.

Narrator: To begin anew, sometimes it is necessary.

We now see shots of huge moments of change in TNA history; Kurt Angle's debut, Sting's first TNA World Title victory and Samoa Joe, AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels all competing at their legendary Unbreakable match all quickly fade in and out of picture. The pictures now switch to a shot of Jeff Hardy becoming the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion at Bound For Glory.

Narrator: Tonight, Jeff Hardy will defend his TNA World Heavyweight Championship for the first time against the number one contender, James Storm.

The pictures show Jeff celebrating his victory over Aries before switching to shots of James Storm battling against Bobby Roode. We then Storm standing over Roode, celebrating, after being declared the victor. We now switch to a shot of Jesse Sorensen being carried out of the arena having just broken his neck.

Narrator: After almost a year on the shelf, Jesse Sorensen makes his return to TNA as he challenges the man who injured him, Zema Ion, for the TNA X-Division Championship.

We now see Zema Ion celebrating his many victories as TNA X-Division Champion, shoving the into the camera and bragging about how great he is. We see him injuring several X-Division superstars before the final shot is of Ion holding the belt high above his head. The shots now show Aces & 8s beating down Sting and Hulk Hogan.

Narrator: Sting and Hulk Hogan have been victims of Aces & 8s for several months but they plan to bring this all to an end when they call the group out for a huge face to face confrontation.

We now see a full scale brawl between Aces & 8s and half the TNA locker-room with the TNA guys getting the better of Aces & 8s. Bobby Roode is now seen, clearly frustrated, following him his match with James Storm at Bound For Glory.

Narrator: Bobby Roode's mouth may have finally gotten him into trouble as he is set to confront the man he accuses of 'screwing him' at Bound For Glory: King Mo.

We now see King Mo tossing Bobby Roode back into the ring and then Mo raising Storm's hand into the air in victory. We now switch to a completely black screen with flashes of light showing bodies in the shadows.

Narrator: A whole new crop of talent will be making their first in-ring appearances in TNA.

We now see shots of the bodies in the shadows who are, in fact, John Hennigan, Beth Scarlet & Natalie Neidhart all posing in-ring gear and ready for action.

Narrator: And a truly global superstar becomes a part of this new age.

The shot is now solely on Dave Batista, images of him on the red carpet, in moves, in MMA and then in a black suit and tie with a plain black background. He smiles to the camera as we fade back to the TNA logo.

Narrator: Tonight, a TNA revolution begins.

~#~#~#~#~ END VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~
We are greeted by a huge pyrotechnical display as TNA makes it's big return to broadcast television with this huge 3-hour Impact special. We cut to pictures of the many fans in attendance as we hear the commentators introduce the show.

Mike Tenay: Welcome to a new era for TNA Wrestling as Impact returns to Spike in what is sure to be a huge show. Hello everyone, I'm Mike Tenay alongside my broadcast colleague, Taz, and tonight, partner, we're in for one hell of a show.

The show now cuts to Mike Tenay and Taz at the announce position.

Taz: You're not kidding! Tonight, we'll see the "Tennessee Cowboy" James Storm challenge "The Charismatic Enigma" Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

Mike Tenay: Also on tonight's broadcast, we'll see several huge debuts as Natalie Neidhart & Beth Scarlet will be making their in-ring debuts against Rosita & Sarita in a Knockouts tag team match while John Hennigan is part of a huge 8-man tag team match that will see him team up with AJ Styles, Kurt Angle and Rob Van Dam to take on the World Tag Team Champions Of The World, Austin Aries and Joey Ryan.

Taz: That is one stacked match! Hennigan is a highly talented individual and so are all the other competitors in that match and I can't wait to see Neidhart and Scarlet in action. Those two are some damn tough women, I certainly wouldn't want to be in the ring with them.

Mike Tenay: Let's not forget about Dave Batista who becomes a part of TNA Wrestling tonight and will get the opportunity to come out and address the fans on his first night with the company.

Taz: Batista in TNA is huge, kinda like Batista himself, and I expect him to be challenging for the World Title in the near future.

Mike Tenay: We'll also see Bobby Roode come face to face with King Mo for the first time since Bound For Glory.

Taz: Roode has been running his mouth about how King Mo screwed him over against James Storm at Bound For Glory so TNA decided that he could say it to Mo's face. I'm certainly expecting fireworks, whatever happens.

Mike Tenay: TNA General Manager Hulk Hogan has said that he plans to put an end to Aces & 8s reign of terror once and for all tonight as he and Sting call them out.

Taz: I'm not sure if it's a smart move for Hogan and Sting to be calling those guys out considering what they've done to both Hogan and Sting in recent times. Not only that but Hogan has told the rest of the roster to stay backstage no matter what happens so I can guarantee you that, if it turns into a fight, Hogan and Sting are going to be seriously outnumbered!

Mike Tenay: After a long time out injured due to a broken neck, Jesse Sorensen will make his first in-ring appearance since he suffered the injury. He hopes he can make it a dream comeback as he challenges Zema Ion, the man who injured him, for the TNA X-Division Championship.

Taz: Sorensen went through a lot with that injury and Ion showed no remorse for Sorensen at all. In fact, he has gone out of his way to try and take out even more people since he broke Sorensen's neck. Sorensen will be out for revenge in his big return to...

~#~#~#~#~ CRAWL ~#~#~#~#~

Taz is cut off as "Crawl" by Kings Of Leon hits across the sound system as the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, the "Tennessee Cowboy" James Storm appears to a large ovation from the many fans packed into the Impact Zone. He is in his ring gear, a black "James Storm" T-Shirt, a cowboy and sunglasses.

Taz: Well what a way to kick off the show! James Storm is in the Impact Zone!

Mike Tenay: Storm was recently named as the number one contender to the World Heavyweight Championship following his big victory over Bobby Roode at Bound For Glory.

Taz: It was a very impressive victory at that. That was match was a brutal battle and Storm managed to come out on top and, for that alone, he deserves an opportunity to challenge for the World Title in my eyes.

Mike Tenay: I sure can't argue with you there, Storm made it all the way to the Semi Finals of the Bound For Glory Series before losing out to Bully Ray. He now gets a shot at the man he would have faced had he defeated Bully Ray, the winner of the Bound For Glory series, the current TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Hardy.

Taz: And what a match that promises to be. Those two are sure to go all out to try and walk out of the first show of the year as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Storm climbs into the ring and is handed a microphone by a stagehand as his music dies down on the background. Replacing the music, the fans begin chanting for James Storm. Storm smiles and nods before addressing the crowd.

James Storm: Happy New Year Impact Zone!

The fans pop huge as James Storm plays up to them. A "New Year, New Champ" chant begins to start up He laughs and half-heartedly waves them off before adjusting his shades.

James Storm: I'm not out here to play up to you fans. I appreciate your support and I'm proud to have it but, tonight, a era is born in TNA. Tonight, I go one on one with Jeff Hardy...

There's a huge pop throughout the Impact Zone at the mention of Jeff's name.

James Storm: For the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

That pop seems tame in comparison to this one as the whole place is engulfed in cheers for tonight's main event contest.

James Storm: I respect Jeff Hardy for what he has achieved in the past and I respect that Jeff Hardy is one hell of a competitor. But tonight, he isn't walking out of this place as Champion... because I am.

There's a mixed reaction to this statement. There are a lot of James Storm fans in attendance tonight but, equally, there are just as many Jeff Hardy fans.

James Storm: I've worked so hard for this opportunity. Ever since Roode smashed that beer bottle over my head...

The crowd begin to boo at the mention of the Beer Money split.

James Storm: Every single moment of my life has been dedicated to regaining that World Title. It's taken over my whole life.

Jams Storm removes his sunglasses and looks very serious as he looks into the camera.

James Storm: I came so close at Lockdown but that damn cage door screwed me over.

He hangs his head low, looking disappointed in himself, before lifting his head back up again to continue.

James Storm: I almost won the Bound For Glory Series but Bully Ray knocked me off at the penultimate hurdle.

He reaches up and removes his cowboy hat, holding it against his chest.

James Storm: So with no title match, I went out and took revenge on that jack-ass, Bobby Roode, and now I'm finally getting a one on one opportunity to challenge for the World Title against someone who isn't going to try and steal a god damn victory from me!!

He tosses the hat down onto the canvas and drives his right boot down onto it.

James Storm: I'm sick and tired of playing the nice guy. From now on... I'm gonna be the tough guy!

The fans all begin cheering this statement as James Storm continues.

James Storm: Tonight, James Storm begins a new era in his career as the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Jeff Hardy, sorry about your...

~#~#~#~#~ ANOTHER ME ~#~#~#~#~

James Storm is cut off by the sounds of "Another Me" by Dale Oliver & Jeff Hardy playing over the sound system as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy makes his way out onto the ramp in street clothes, jeans and a black Jeff Hardy vest, and then heads on down towards the ring.

Taz: Business just picked up!

Mike Tenay: The TNA World Heavyweight Champion is here in the Impact Zone and I'm sure he's going to have something to say to James Storm regarding his claims that he will be walking out of tonight's show as the new TNA World Champion.

Jeff Hardy looks straight towards the ring, getting handed a microphone as he gets to the bottom of the ramp before he hops up onto the ring apron and climbs into the ring. He keeps his eyes focused on James Storm before heading across towards the corner and climbing the ropes to the adulation of fans. He gets down from the ropes and turns to head for the opposite corner but bumps into James Storm and the two men are immediately face to face, looking like they're about ready to fight now!

James Storm: You want something?

Storm is completely deadpan as he says this, staring straight into Hardy's eyes. Hardy looks serious himself as he takes a step back and lifts the microphone to his lips.

Jeff Hardy: Yeah, I want to say something. Is that ok or does the TNA World Heavyweight Champion need your permission to speak?

This draws a huge pop from the crowd as Storm looks less than impressed by Hardy's pandered but motions that the ring is Hardy's as Jeff continues.

Jeff Hardy: James, you know I have a lot of respect for you and I know you've got a lot of respect for me. I can appreciate that you've worked damn hard to get to where you're at in this industry... but so have I!

Another big pop echoes throughout the Impact Zone.

Jeff Hardy: It took me five months to get from the start of the Bound For Glory Series to the World Heavyweight Championship and I wasn't handed anything during that time. I haven't been handed anything throughout my career. I worked to get everything I have and I'm not about to let anyone come in and take all that away from me.

A "Hardy" chant begins to build across the Impact Zone as both Hardy and Storm look out towards the fans. Jeff nods his head in approval before both men turn back to face each other.

Jeff Hardy: They helped me get where I am today. Those fans are a big part of the reason I do this.

A round of applause now engulfs the arena.

Jeff Hardy: With all the hard work I've put in and with these fans behind me, James, you're not going to be walking out as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion... I AM!

Jeff gets right back up in James' face again.

James Storm: Oh, is that right?

Jeff Hardy: Yeah, that's damn right!

These two combustible elements look like they're about to explode here when Storm breaks out into a smirk and takes a step backwards.

James Storm: See you later tonight Jeff.

~#~#~#~#~ CRAWL ~#~#~#~#~

James retrieves his cowboy hat and exits the ring as "Crawl" by Kings Of Leon plays across the sound system and he makes his way back up the ramp, leaving Jeff Hardy in the ring holding his belt looking more than a little flustered.

Mike Tenay: An interesting exchange between champion and challenger. Both men clearly want that belt.

Taz: I think Storm might be trying to play some mind games here because he looks a darn sight cooler about this whole situation than Jeff does.

Mike Tenay: You may well be right, James Storm is a smart individual and I'm sure he'll do anything he can to ensure he leaves tonight as the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Taz: Oh man, this one's going to be a rocket-buster!

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

We return from commercial just in time to see Doug Williams climbing up the ring steps and entering the ring as the third participant of this X-Division fatal four way match, with both Kenny King and Sonjay Dutt already waiting in the ring.

Mike Tenay: Welcome back ladies and gentlemen and we're here with our first match of the evening: a fatal four way match involving four of the X-Divisions top guys. The winner will surely be in line for a future shot at the X-Division Title.

Taz: I gotta be honest wit' you Mike, I like all the guys in this match. I'm wouldn't be surprised to see any of them walking out with the win here.

Mike Tenay: Of course, Doug Williams is a former X-Division Champion while neither Dutt, nor King are yet to have held that particular piece of Championship gold.

Taz: And let's not forget about Sabin...

~#~#~#~#~ FLOWING ~#~#~#~#~

Almost as if on cue, the sound of "Flowing" by 311 begins playing over the sounds system and it is greeted by a huge roar from the Impact crowd as Chris Sabin makes his first appearance back in TNA since he suffered an injury back in early 2012.

Mike Tenay: Sabin was out of for a long time with a torn ACL but he's finally back and the Impact crowd seem happy to see him.

Sabin slaps hands with fans as he makes his way down to the ring with a big smile on his face before he stops and poses at the bottom of the ramp way.

Taz: Sabin's such a talent dude, he can do things in that ring that just blow my mind. On any other day, I'd probably pick Sabin to win this thing but we don't know whether he's truly 100% having been out of action for so long and an injury that keeps you out for that long can be seriously damaging to your career.

Mike Tenay: And you've got to factor in the rest of the competition as well. Kenny King has looked very impressive since making his debut, Sonjay almost defeated Zema Ion for the Championship a few months ago and Doug Williams is always tough to beat.

Sabin is now in the ring and the four competitors are all backed up into separate corners as referee Brian Hebner calls for the bell.

***DING! DING! DING!***

Chris Sabin Vs Doug Williams Vs Kenny King Vs Sonjay Dutt

The sound of the bell starts of this match as Kenny King charges towards Sonjay Dutt, forcing him back up into the corner, and he begins laying the boots into Dutt. Doug Williams quickly follows suit and begins beating down on Dutt as he drops down to his knees and begins punching Dutt as King continues to put the boots in to him. Sabin watches from the opposite corner as Doug and Kenny both to get to their feet, looking rather smug at their dirty work when they turn around as Sabin's respective boots connect with both of their faces, sending both men flying backwards and, in Williams' case, out of the ring. Sabin turns his attentions to Kenny King as he pulls himself to his feet using the ropes. Sabin whips King off the ropes and drops him to the mat with another dropkick to the face. As Sabin gets to his feet, he catches Sonjay Dutt's knee right in his jaw. Sonjay hooks Sabin up and drops him to the mat with a quick snap suplex before floating over into the first pin attempt of the match, ONE... TWO... Doug Williams is in to pull Dutt off Sabin before he tosses Sonjay Dutt, shoulder first, into the steel ring post. He follows in by grabbing a hold of Sonjay in a German Suplex position as he attempts his patented Chaos Theory move but Sonjay grabs the ring ropes to avoid suffering the move. Williams releases his grip and drives his forearm down onto Dutt's back before bringing him up and over with a Snapmare takedown. Williams begins wrenching away at Dutt's neck as he clamps on a chin lock but it doesn't last long as Kenny King returns to the action, catching Williams with a hard right hand leading to him releasing the hold. King follows it up with several more hard right hands on Williams, beating him back into the corner before Chris Sabin arrives to help him out. Both men whip Williams into the opposing corner before King whips Sabin into Williams with a big diving corner splash. Sabin doesn't miss a beat as he throws Williams in to King who snaps him over with a power-slam. Before either Sabin or King have a chance to even think about their next move, Kenny King quickly rolls Sabin up, ONE... TWO... Sabin kicks out but he was almost caught unaware there!

Sabin rolls to his feet and lunges at King, forcing him back against the ropes before delivering several stiff chops to the chest. Sabin leaps up and goes for an enziguri head-kick that King ducks underneath before booting Sabin in the face as he attempts to steady himself. King follows up on the advantage by dropping Chris Sabin to the canvas with a swinging neckbreaker. King does not get a chance to capitalise on the move as Sonjay Dutt catches him with a baseball slide dropkick as he attempts to get to his feet. Dutt lifts King to his feet before dropping him with a tilt-a-whirl tornado DDT. Dutt covers King, ONE... TWO... Sabin breaks up the pin attempt and pulls Dutt up but receives a jaw-breaker for his troubles. From behind Sabin comes Doug Williams who grabs Sabin and drives his arm into Sabin's jaw with a big European Uppercut that sends Sabin down to the mat. Dutt is now to his feet as Doug Williams throws a right hand towards Dutt but Dutt ducks underneath it and stomps on Williams' toe that causes him to hop around on one foot! Sonjay winds up his leg and goes for a big kick to the head but Doug blocks it, grabbing a hold of Sonjay's head before nailing him with a hard right hand and spinning him round. Williams hooks Sonjay up for the second time in the match, running him forwards into the corner before bring him down with a vicious CHAOS THEORY! ONE... TWO... THR-NO!! Kenny King is in to break up the count, bringing a double axe handle down onto Doug Williams' mid-section. He pulls Doug to his feet and catches him with a flurry of kicks to the chest before following it up with a big running clothesline, sending both Williams and himself flying up, over the top rope and then down to the concrete floor at ringside. As Williams and King lay prone on the concrete floor, Sabin gets to his feet and sees Dutt struggling to get to his. He spots his opportunity and pounces, lifting Dutt up and onto his shoulders before driving him down to the mat with a CRADLE SHOCK! Sabin takes Dutt straight down into a pin, ONE... TWO... THREE!! Sabin does it! He picks up the victory in his return match!

***DING! DING! DING!***

Christy Hemme: The winner of this match... CHRIS SABIN!!

~#~#~#~#~ FLOWING ~#~#~#~#~

Sabin gets to his feet, clutching his shoulder, when Hebner raises his arm to declare him the victor.

Mike Tenay: A mightily impressive victory from Chris Sabin in his return to TNA and his injury doesn't look to have hindered him one bit.

Taz: You ain't kidding Mike. That win will certainly help to re-establish Sabin as a top contender to the X-Division Championship going forward.

The cameras follow Sabin as he makes his way out of the ring and slowly back up the ramp, slapping hands with a few more fans as he heads up the ramp before we cut back to Taz and Mike Tenay at the announce position.

Mike Tenay: We've still got plenty more to come tonight as Zema Ion defends the X-Division Championship against Jesse Sorensen. Sabin could certainly be getting in the ring with the winner of that much somewhere down the line.

Taz: I can see it. Sabin's a former multi-time X-Division Champion and he showed he's got plenty left in the tank in spite of his injury.

Mike Tenay: I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. Right now, JB is standing by backstage.

We cut straight to the backstage area where Jeremy Borash is standing by in the interview area.

Jeremy Borash: Thanks Mike. I'm here with...

Borash is quickly cut off by the former TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Austin Aries, who snatches the microphone away from Borash. Borash looks rather startled by this as Aries gets right up in his face and begins ranting at him.

Austin Aries: This is a joke. The TNA World Heavyweight Championship is on the line... and I'm not in the match? Is someone out to get me? Where the hell is my rematch? Huh? Where's my rematch? Huh? Answer me!

Borash is almost cowering in fear as Aries backs him up against the interview set up. A hand reaches across to Aries and pulls him back. The camera pans round to reveal that the hand in question belongs to none other than "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels.

Christopher Daniels: Come on now Aries, now is not the time.

Aries looks to Daniels and then back to Borash before sighing and turning back to Daniels, who is flanked by his other team-mates for the evening: Kazarian & Joey Ryan who is accompanied by his girlfriend, Tara, all in their ring gear.

Austin Aries: You're right... But you better leave!

He motions towards Borash who doesn't hang around much longer, disappearing off screen. Daniels pats Aries on the back before taking the microphone and turning to address the camera.

Christopher Daniels: Greatness. That is what you see before you ladies and gentlemen, an array of some of the greatest professional wrestlers to have ever graced this planet. First, you have Austin Aries.

Daniels plants his hand firmly on Aries shoulder.

Christopher Daniels: The next TNA World Heavyweight Champion. A man who was screwed out of the championship and will get his guaranteed rematch because he deserves it.

He removes his hand from a rather pleased looking Austin Aries and motions towards Joey Ryan.

Christopher Daniels: We've got the #Trending phenomenon, the most talented up and coming superstar on this entire roster: Joey Ryan. There is no doubt in my mind that this man will be competing for the Television Championship within weeks.

Joey Ryan smirks and nods as Daniels continues with his promo.

Christopher Daniels: And last, but by no means least, you have us.

He points to Kazarian before moving his hand back to motion towards himself.

Christopher Daniels: THE WOOOOOORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS OF THE WOOOOOORLD! We are... the best... BEST tag team on this planet. AJ, Kurt, you guys have had your opportunities to challenge for our belts and you know what? You've failed, you're not worthy of another shot and we'll prove that tonight. You two are on notice because we're clear out the tag team division, team by team. Get ready because the winter clearance starts TONIGHT!

Daniels tosses the microphone away as he and his team disappear off-camera as we quickly cut back to Mike Tenay and Taz down at the announce position.

Mike Tenay: A very confident Christopher Daniels addressing AJ Styles and Kurt Angle, potential future challengers for the Tag Team Titles.

Taz: And why wouldn't Daniels be confident? He's one half of the tag team champions and they've defeated Angle and Styles on multiple occasions. From the sounds of things, tonight ain't gonna be any different.

Mike Tenay: I'm sure Styles and Angle will have something to say about that. As will Rob Van Dam and the fourth member of that team, the TNA debutant, John Hennigan.

Taz: Hennigan and Van Dam are both crazy cats, I'll give you that. I wouldn't be surprised if either team pulled of the victory but Daniels and Kazarian have done it in the past and I can see them doing it again.

Mike Tenay: We'll find out later on tonight.

The pictures cut away to a limousine with a police escort headed towards the Impact Zone.

Mike Tenay: And speaking of things we'll find out later tonight, Dave Batista is on his way to the Impact Zone. He'll be here in person to address... well, I guess whatever he sees fit!

Taz: Big Dave Batista arrives in TNA tonight and I, for one, cannot wait!

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

The announce position is the first thing we see when we return to the show.

Mike Tenay: Welcome back everyone. Mike Tenay and Taz here on this, a very special night for TNA Wrestling. Not only a huge 3-hour Impact special, not only a World Heavyweight Championship match, not only an X-Division Championship match but four new superstars will appear in TNA for the very first time tonight.

Taz: Dave Batista in TNA! I can't wait to see what he has to say.

Mike Tenay: We'll also John Hennigan making his first in-ring appearance for the company in a blockbuster 8-man tag team match where he will team with AJ Styles, Kurt Angle and Rob Van Dam to take on the World Tag Team Champions Of The World, Austin Aries and Joey Ryan.

Taz: And, of course, Natalie Neidhart will be joined by Beth Scarlet as we introduce two true Knockout Knockouts to the TNA Knockouts division as they team up to take on Rosita and Sarita.

Mike Tenay: We've also got a confrontation between Bobby Roode and King Mo as these two men come face to face for the first time since Mo, quote unquote, 'screwed' Roode out of the victory in his match with James Storm.

Taz: If Roode isn't careful, I could see Mo knocking him out! Let's not forget that Hogan and Sting plan to call out Aces & 8s to try and put an end to this thing tonight!

Mike Tenay: Right now, though, we've got another big match as Mr Anderson and D'Angelo Dinero go one-on-one!

We cut away from ringside to show Christy Hemme stood in the middle of the ring with a microphone in her right hand.

Christy Hemme: The following contest is scheduled for one fall with a fifteen minute time limit.

~#~#~#~#~ SOUND OF MADNESS ~#~#~#~#~

The sounds system blares into action as "Sound Of Madness" by Shinedown plays and Mr Anderson appears at the top of the entrance ramp before raising his arm high into the air as his microphone is lowered as he continues to announce himself to the ring.

Mr Anderson: Making his way to the ring at this time, he hails from Green Bay, Wisconsin. He weighs in at a pristine 240 pounds; MIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSTEEEERRRRR AAAAANNNDEEERRRSOOOON... AAANNNDDEEERRRRRSSOOOOOOONNN!!!

He tosses the microphone aside before heading straight for the ring with a lot of purpose in his step.

Taz: Anderson looks ready Mike.

Mike Tenay: He feels like he has something to prove after being overlooked for the tag team match against Aces & 8s at Bound For Glory. A win here would definitely see him looked at as a potential soldier for that particular war. That is if Hogan and Sting don't put an end to it later on tonight.

Anderson climbs into the ring and bounces himself off the ring ropes looking ready for a fight as he music dies down.

~#~#~#~#~ SUPERSTAR ~#~#~#~#~

It is replace by the sounds of "Superstar" by Lupe Fiasco feat. Matthew Santos and the arrival of "The Pope" D'Angelo Dinero.

Christy Hemme: And his opponent, from The Streets Of Harlem, New York, weighing in at 220 pounds; "The Pope" D'ANNNGELLOOOO DIIINEERRROOOOO!!!

Dinero steps out in his jacket and shades, slowly strutting down the entrance way as Anderson looks poised in the ring, awaiting the start of the match. Dinero climbs up the ring steps and enters into the ring, removing his sunglasses and jacket before handing them to SoCal Val at ringside. He smiles before turning to face Anderson as the referee calls for the bell.

***DING! DING! DING!***

Mr Anderson Vs D'Angelo Dinero

Anderson immediately races across the ring towards Dinero, as the match starts, swinging his right hand but Dinero ducks underneath right hand and catches Anderson with a right hand of his own. He follows up with several more right hands, beating Anderson back into the corner. He hooks Anderson's arm and attempts to whip him across the ring but Anderson counters and sends Dinero crashing into the corner. Anderson takes Dinero down with a vicious clothesline as he bounces out of the corner, dropping both men down to the canvas. Anderson goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Dinero kicks out at two. Anderson pulls Dinero up to his feet by the hair and drives his forearm into Dinero's face several times before whipping him off the ropes again but, this time, Dinero counters and drops Anderson with a power-slam coming back off the ropes, ONE... TWO... Anderson manages to get his shoulder up. D'Angelo moves Anderson up into a seat position and begins driving his knees down into Anderson's back before winding his boot up and kicking him hard in the back several times over before bouncing off the ring ropes and driving his knee right into Anderson's face. Dinero drops down and hooks the leg, ONE... TWO... Anderson kicks out. Dinero gets to his feet and reaches down, pulling Anderson to his feet, and he goes for a hard right hand to the face but Anderson blocks it and catches Dinero with a right hand of his own. He then nails another and another and another, beating Dinero back against the ropes, whipping him off and dropping him down to the mat with a reverse elbow smash, connecting right with Dinero's jaw. Anderson drops to the mat and goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Dinero slings his shoulder up off the mat.

Anderson gets up to his feet and drags Dinero up to his. Anderson throws Dinero backwards into the corner and goes to charge in after him but D'Angelo moves out of the way and avoids the contact, sending Anderson crashing, shoulder first, into the steel ring post. Anderson can be heard yelling out in agony as Dinero pulls him out from between the ring ropes and he immediately targets the injured body part by pulling the arm right down onto both his knees. Anderson falls backwards, writhing around on the mat and clutching his arm in pain. Not giving Anderson a single second to recover, Dinero pounces on the arm, driving his knees hard down onto it. He lifts the arm up and slams it down hard against the canvas several times before hooking the arm up in an arm-bar right in the middle of the ring. Anderson struggles to reach the ropes with his feet but, evens stretching his entire body out, he is still a good foot or so shy of reaching those ring ropes to break the hold. Dinero pulls on the arm as he tries to pick up the submission victory but Anderson refuses to submit. Dinero looks annoyed as Anderson attempts to crawl towards the ropes as D'Angelo tries to twist and contort the arm but Anderson is resilient stretching for, clawing towards and ultimately reaching the ring ropes causing the referee to break the hold. Dinero is mad as he gets to his feet, shoving the referee out of the way and pulling Anderson by the hair but being greeted by a low blow! The referee didn't see it because Dinero shoved him out of the way.

Anderson is quick to attempt to capitalise, using his good arm to pull Dinero into a small package, ONE... TWO... THREE-NO! Anderson can't believe it as D'Angelo makes to slip out of the move and quickly roll towards the corner. As Anderson attempts to get to his feet with one good arm, Dinero pulls himself up in the corner looking rather pissed. He charges towards Anderson but Anderson moves out of the way and Dinero crashes into the corner. Anderson swoops in and hooks his arm around Dinero's neck, attempting to go for the MIC CHECK but he pauses for a moment as the pain in his arm bothers him enough to stop him in his tracks and Dinero is quick to counter, slipping out and rolling Anderson up in a cradle, ONE... TWO... THREE!! He got him! Pope got him! Dinero gets the victory!

Christy Hemme: Here is your winner... "The Pope" D'ANGELO DINERO!!!

~#~#~#~#~ SUPERSTAR ~#~#~#~#~

Both Pope and Anderson look shocked as the referee lifts Dinero's arm in victory. Anderson lunges towards him but D'Angelo jumps out of the ring and begins heading back up the entrance ramp but still celebrating in the process.

Mike Tenay: A big win for "The Pope" here as he topples a former TNA World Heavyweight Champion in Mr Anderson.

Taz: Anderson looks mighty pissed but, on this night, he just got beaten by the better man.

We now cut to a shot backstage of Hulk Hogan address several members of the TNA locker-room backstage.

Hulk Hogan: I'm glad I managed to get you all here and, now that you are all here, I want you all to know that you need to stay away from the ring when we call out Aces & 8s tonight.

The whole room seems up in arms as a bunch of roster members begin shouting at Hogan when a bang noise silences the entire locker-room and the camera pans around to reveal Sting cracking a baseball bat against a locker.

Sting: The man said nobody comes to the ring when we call out Aces & 8s tonight. It's simple, Hogan is General Manager and what he says goes.

The roster seem to accept this statement.

Sting: Guys, we're not a bunch of animals. Yeah, we go out there to kick ass night in, night out, but Aces & 8s aren't like us. They don't wait for the bell to ring, they just strike whenever they want. If we do the same thing, what makes us any better than them, huh? 'Cos we are better than them, we're going to deal with this the right way and we're going to put an end to it.

Hulk Hogan: If any of you come out tonight, no matter what happens, you're fired.

Sting and Hogan look around at the roster who seem to have been completely dumbstruck by the last few moments as they both exit the locker-room and we cut back to Mike Tenay and Taz.

Mike Tenay: Well... uh... I don't really know what to make of that?

Taz: Me neither Mike but I'm sure Hogan knows what he's doing.

Mike Tenay: I still don't like it. I don't trust Aces & 8s.

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

As we return from commercial, a long black limousine pulls up in the arena parking lot. The door swings open and a black shoe is place on the floor, shortly followed by a second as the door is closed. The camera stays focused on the shoes for several moments as the owner of the shoes begins to walk into the arena. After a moment or two, it becomes very evident that these shoes are, in fact, Gucci. It doesn't take long the camera very long from their to begin panning upwards to reveal Dave Batista decked out in a grey suit with designer sunglasses to accompany the suit and shoes. The camera follows Batista as he steps up a few steps and then enters the arena, closing the door behind him. We stay focused on the closed door for a few seconds to allow the moment to set in before cutting away to the announce team.

Mike Tenay: He's here!

Taz: Business just picked up Mike!

Mike Tenay: We'll hear from Dave Batista later tonight and I can't wait to see what he has to say.

Taz: If I know Batista, he'll have plenty to say. You may actually have a hard time getting him to shut up.

Mike Tenay: That's just one of the huge moments we're going to have for you tonight as another is just about to occur between Bobby Roode and King Mo!

Taz: Oh boy! Bring it on, I'm ready!

~#~#~#~#~ RUN THIS TOWN ~#~#~#~#~

"Run This Town" by Jay-Z feat. Rihanna & Kanye West begins playing and King Mo makes his way out to a rapturous applause. He is wearing street clothes, jeans and a plain black Bellator T-Shirt. He heads towards the ring about to come face to face with the former World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Roode.

Mike Tenay: Ever since Bound For Glory, all we've heard in interviews with Bobby Roode is about how King Mo "screwed him" in his match against James Storm.

Taz: Well, he's going to have the opportunity to address those issues with the man himself. I'm not sure this is gonna end well though.

Mo is now in the ring as he jumps up onto the top rope to cheers from the crowd before retrieving a microphone from SoCal Val as he music dies down.

King Mo: I guess Bobby Roode has a little bit of a problem with me. He seems to think I "screwed him" against James Storm.

The fans boo this insinuation. Mo just smirks.

King Mo: Let's not waste anymore time then. Bobby, could you come on out here please?

Mo now waves Roode's arrival on.

~#~#~#~#~ SUPREMACY ~#~#~#~#~

He doesn't have to wait for very long as a large round of boos greet the sounds of "Supremacy" by Muse as Bobby Roode steps out and onto the entrance way to an even louder round of boos.

Taz: You know, I don't say this very often but I think this is a big mistake on Roode's part. I think he's picking a fight with the wrong guy.

Mike Tenay: You could be right Taz. We're still yet tor really see what Mo is capable of in the ring and I'm sure Roode is taking Mo far more lightly than he should be.

Taz: You're not kidding. Mo is one hell of a tough S.O.B. I just hope Roode knows what he is getting himself into.

Roode is now in the ring with a microphone as well. He sizes up Mo, standing on the opposite side of the ring to him. Mo jokingly motions for a hug, a request which is unsurprisingly rejected by a scorned looking Bobby Roode. Mo laughs to himself, shaking his head before turning his head back towards Roode.

King Mo: So, Bobby...

Roode is swift to cut him off.

Bobby Roode: That's Mr Roode to you!

King Mo: Ok then "Mr Roode". I heard you had something you wanted to get off your chest.

Bobby Roode: Yeah, you're damn right I do. You screwed me over against James Storm at Bound For Glory. I had the match won before you decided to stick your nose in and cost me the match.

King Mo: Oh really? Is that so?

Bobby Roode: Yes, that is so!

Mo begins smirking as Roode gets right up in his face, acting very aggressively about this whole situation.

King Mo: Well, I guess if you say I 'screwed you', we can take a look at the replay and we'll see just what you're talking about, right? Guys, can we a replay of the Storm Vs Roode finish?

We now cut back two months to TNA's Bound For Glory Pay-Per-View:

James Storm attempts a Superkick but Roode drops down onto his back and rolls out of the ring before heading back up the entrance ramp, waving Storm away as the fans in the arena all begin to boo. As he turns away and starts to make his exit, we see King Mo chasing after him and Mo grabs him by the hair before pulling him back towards the ring and tossing him inside. Roode rolls back to his feet and turns towards Mo, yelling at him, before turning around and... SMASH! Beer bottle shot to the head for Bobby Roode... LAST CALL! Storm makes the cover, ONE... TWO... THREE!!

We now cut back to the ring to see Roode waving his finger towards the screen

Bobby Roode: You see? Your job, as an enforcer, was to make sure nobody was to interfere in the match, not to man-handle the combatants. That match was a Street Fight, I could do whatever the hell I wanted and if I wanted to go for a walk I could damn well go for a walk. You're not nobody to stop me!

Roode's aggression is slowly heightening the point where it looks as if things might get physical between these two men but Mo immediately comes back Roode with some aggression of his own.

King Mo: That's right, it was a Street Fight and yes, that does mean anything goes... So I could do what the hell I wanted as well!

The crowd begin cheering as Mo starts to get a little wound-up by Roode's attitude.

King Mo: You weren't "going for a walk", you were running away like a god damn coward!

That statement gets another loud reaction from the Impact Zone.

King Mo: You're lucky I didn't knock you out back then so consider this to be your first and only warning; you piss me off, you get knocked out!

The fans are going wild! Roode looks like he just saw a ghost! Mo looks about ready to snap Roode in half!

After a few moments of pure stunned silenced, Roode manages to shake it off and return to his angered state.

Bobby Roode: Who in the hell do you think you are to talk to me like that? I'm Bobby Roode, I'm a former TNA World Heavyweight Champion. What exactly have you done, huh? "King Mo"? More like "King Ho".

Roode laughs at his own joke but Mo isn't impressed. In fact, the camera reveals Mo to be clenching his right hand and just about ready to punch Roode in the face but Roode is completely oblivious to this as he basks in his own vanity before he continues.

Bobby Roode: That's what I'm going to call you from now on, "King Ho". You're nothing but a dirty little...

Mo has had had enough as he blasts Roode in the face with a huge right hand that connects picture perfectly with Roode's jaw, sending him straight down to the mat!

The fans are going crazy!

Roode isn't moving!

Mo crouches down next to the unconscious Roode.

King Mo: Call me that again and I'll knock your teeth right down your throat.

~#~#~#~#~ RUN THIS TOWN ~#~#~#~#~

Mo tosses the mic down to the mat with a loud thud as "Run This Town" by Jay-Z feat. Rihanna & Kanye West starts up again and Mo makes his way to the back with the fans cheering louder than they've cheered all night!

Mike Tenay: What a statement made by King Mo. He's not going to back down from the former World Heavyweight Champion!

Taz: Mo doesn't take any B.S from anybody. When you put somebody like Bobby Roode, who is notorious for getting himself into trouble with what he says, you're setting yourself up for something like that to happen.

We now see a shot of Bobby Roode, who is still laid out in the ring, not moving an inch.

Mike Tenay: Talk about a knockout blow. Roode hasn't moved although I'm sure he'll have something to say about this when he does regain consciousness.

The last shot we see is of Mo at the top of the ramp, both arms raised high above his head as we cut away to commercial.

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

~#~#~#~#~ REPTILIA ~#~#~#~#~

We return from commercial to "Reptilia" by The Strokes playing throughout the Impact as Jesse Sorensen makes his first in-ring appearance since he broke his neck. Sorensen looks happy to be back as he tosses the football he has been known for carrying high into the crowd before heading down towards the ring.

Christy Hemme: The following contest, scheduled for one fall, is for TNA X-Division Championship. First, the challenger, from Katy, Texas, weighing in at 200 pounds, he is current, reigning and defending; JEEESSSSSEEEEE SOOORRRENNNSEEENNNNNN!!

Sorensen slaps hands with fans on his way to the ring.

Mike Tenay: It's been almost a year, 11 months to be exact, since Jesse Sorensen first suffered a broken neck in a match against Zema Ion. Ultimately, that match changed both men's careers. While Sorensen was out injured, many blamed Ion for injuring Jesse but the current X-Division Champion showed absolutely no remorse for his fallen foe. Tonight, Sorensen has the just to gain a measure of redemption over Ion by walking away as the new TNA X-Division Champion.

Taz: I've spoken to him and I've got to say that Sorensen's a great kid. Always happy, always smiling, he's a great guy so for something like that to happen to him? That really sucks. To be honest, it hasn't really changed his out-look on life. He's still that same happy, smiley guy he always was.

We now see Sorensen in the ring with a microphone with many of the fans chanting "welcome back". Sorensen takes a few deep breaths before finally addressing the crowd.

Jesse Sorensen: Man, it feels good to be back.

The Impact Zone breaks out into cheers for Sorensen's return.

Jesse Sorensen: I really missed this. I really missed all of you.

The cheers become a round of applause.

Jesse Sorensen: That's not what I'm here to talk about though, I'm here to talk about... to talk about my injury.

He looks a little emotional when thinking back to when he first injured his neck.

Jesse Sorensen: Suffering a broken neck is a life changing experience. It certainly changed my life. I could have died. I'm lucky I can still even walk.

He shakes his head when thinking back to the incident.

Jesse Sorensen: Whether people want to blame me or Ion or dumb-luck, it still happened and I was still away from doing what I loved for a year. It really humbled me.

Sorensen struggles very hard to hold the tears back.

Jesse Sorensen: Tonight, in my first match back, I get the opportunity to realise my dream and capture the TNA X-Division Championship.

The fans begin to cheer once again as Sorensen's emotions all disappear and a stern face replaces it all.

Jesse Sorensen: Tonight, Jesse Sorensen becomes the new TNA X-Division Champion.

The crowd erupts as Sorensen places the microphone down on the mat before turning his attentions to the entrance way, awaiting the arrival of the champion.

~#~#~#~#~ WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE ~#~#~#~#~

"Welcome To The Jungle" by Guns 'N' Roses occurs to signal the arrival of TNA X-Division Champion Zema Ion. Sorensen looks ready as Ion makes his way out, hair spray in one hand and championship belt in the other hand. The fans boo his entrance but Ion doesn't seem to care as he cockily struts down towards the ring.

Christy Hemme: And his opponent, from Manila in the Philippines, weighing in at 170 pounds, he is current, reigning and defending TNA X-Division Champion of the world; ZEEEEEEMAAAAA IIIIOOOOOON!!

Ion slides into the ring and puts a bit of spray into his hair, styling himself up for the match before handing his X-Division Championship belt off to the referee and spraying the hair spray in Jesse Sorensen's general direction before placing it down in the corner. Brian Hebner holds the championship belt high in the air for all to see before handing the belt off to SoCal Val and calling for the bell.

***DING! DING! DING!***


TNA X-Division Championship
Zema Ion (c) Vs Jesse Sorensen


Zema Ion immediately starts to taunt Sorensen in regards to his neck injury as Jesse Sorensen looks deadly focused on the match. Zema races towards Sorensen but Jesse counters and manages to get a go-behind on Ion, controlling his position early-on. Ion tries to break Sorensen's grip but he has his hands tight around Zema's waist so Zema slings his elbow around, catching Sorensen in the side of the head, causing him to loosen his grip as he sweeps Jesse's legs from underneath him before paint-brushing the back of Sorensen's neck in a very patronising manner. Zema get to his feet and backs up into the corner as Sorensen feels his neck, looking rather ticked off as Ion tries to play a few mind games with his challenger. Sorensen and Ion lock up and Zema quickly grabs the side head-lock, now attempting to put pressure on the neck by twisting Jesse's head. Sorensen bounces Ion off the ropes, causing him to break the hold, and Jesse charges at Ion, taking him down with a flying cross-body. He lands on top of Zema and immediately goes for the pin, ONE... TWO... Zema kicks out. Both men quickly get to their feet as Sorensen attempts a clothesline but Zema ducks underneath it and hooks Jesse Sorensen up, driving him to the mat in a German Suplex with a bridge, ONE... TWO... Sorensen slips his shoulder out before the three. Zema gets to his feet and pulls Sorensen up before he boots Jesse in the mid-section before dropping him to the mat with a neckbreaker. Ion quickly goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Sorensen kicks out before the three.

Zema gets to his feet and begins stomping on Sorensen's neck. He quickly drops down and grinds Sorensen's neck around in a reverse chin-lock, putting pressure on Jesse's neck. Sorensen reaches up and pulls Ion's hair, bringing him up and over with an innovative version of a snapmare takedown. Sorensen rolls across to the ropes to help get himself up to a vertical base. He turns around as Ion slowly begins to get to his feet and Sorensen runs at Ion, taking him down with a bulldog before going for the cover, ONE... TWO... Ion gets his shoulder up. Sorensen doesn't miss a beat as he rolls out on the apron and begins climbing up and onto the very top rope as he waits for Ion to get to his feet before he leaps off with a big diving missile dropkick that connects flush with Ion's jaw. Sorensen lands hard, clutching his neck, but he knows he needs to make the cover as he rolls across to Ion and hooks the leg, ONE... TWO... THR-NO! Ion manages to kick out before the count of three. Sorensen looks very disheartened by this as he gets to his feet and pulls Ion up to his feet as well. He throws a big clothesline at Zema but Ion ducks underneath it and drives his knee right into Jesse's mid-section before driving his fore-arm down onto Sorensen's back. Ion grabs Jesse and lifts him into the air before... NO! HOLY SH*T! PILEDRIVER!!! Sorensen may be dead as Ion shows no remorse from the crumpled heap that is Jesse Sorensen, rolling him onto his back and making the cover, ONE... TWO... THREE!! Zema Ion retains the X-Division Championship!

***DING! DING! DING!***

Christy Hemme: The winner of this match and STILL TNA X-Division Champion of the world... ZEMA ION!!

~#~#~#~#~ WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE ~#~#~#~#~

Zema Ion is handed the TNA X-Division Championship belt as he is declared to still be the champion before he rolls out of the ring and begins yelling out as he holds the championship belt high above his head. Meanwhile, Jesse Sorensen has yet to move since the match ended and the referee is now checking on him as we cut back to Zema Ion, who is still celebrating retaining his title. He backs up the entrance ramp, hoisting the gold high above his head, as the fans begin to boo the dastardly heel who continues to show no remorse towards the clearly hurt Jesse Sorensen.

Taz: That was a mighty impressive showing from our TNA X-Division Champion right there.

Mike Tenay: It may well have been as Zema Ion retains the TNA X-Division Championship but at what cost? Jesse Sorensen looks like he may be re-injured!

EMT's make their way out towards the ring as we cut away to commercial.

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

We cut back to the show just in time to see Jesse Sorensen being loaded up into an ambulance.

Mike Tenay: Jesse Sorensen failed in his attempts to become the new X-Division Champion and it looks like he has been re-injured in the process.

Taz: He took a whole load of weight right down on his head and neck with that piledriver.

Mike Tenay: I think Zema was out to hurt the neck. He spent the whole match targeting it and we don't know what further damage he may have done to Jesse Sorensen's neck.

Taz: He saw an injury and he targeted the injured body part. I would've done exactly the same thing.

The cameras now shift to backstage to show Dave Batista making his way down the hallways backstage, several staff members and TNA roster members all stopping to say hi and shake hands with Batista.

Mike Tenay: Later on tonight, Dave Batista will be out here to speak to all of us about whatever he sees fit.

Taz: If Dave Batista can do anything, it's talk. Expect some fireworks when he hits that ring later on tonight!

~#~#~#~#~ VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

We cut to visuals of bar fights being played from a projector onto a wall. Punches and kicks are thrown throughout the video as blood drains from faces. The projector clicks as the images disappear and room is engulfed with darkness as the camera shows a man sat in a chair in the shadows.

Man In The Shadows: That was me when I was younger. Fighting on the streets, fighting in bars, just fighting wherever I could.

The man laughs before continuing.

Man In The Shadows: I'm no different today. Fighting is my life and it's going to be my life until the day I die.

The man now stands up and tosses the chair aside.

Man In The Shadows: That's why I'm coming to TNA: to fight.

The man steps forward into the light revealing his face.

Finlay: My name is Finlay and I love ta' fight.

FINLAY: THE FIGHTING IRISHMAN
Coming soon...

~#~#~#~#~ END VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~
We cut back to the ring where Sarita and Rosita are waiting in the ring as their music, "5150" by F.I.L.T.H.E.E/Brickman Raw, begins to die down in the background as both women stand awaiting the arrival of their tonight's opponent.

~#~#~#~#~ THEY SAY ~#~#~#~#~

They don't have to wait for very long as "They Say" by Scars On Broadway hits the sound system and newcomers Beth Scarlet and Natalie Neidhart make their way out to the ring.

Mike Tenay: The newest additions to the Knockouts Division make their arrival to the ring as Natalie Neidhart and Beth Scarlet are set to do battle with Rosita and Sarita.

Taz: I expect a lot from these two women. They'll surely be up there when it comes to the TNA Knockouts Title picture.

Scarlet and Neidhart both slide into the ring and pose for the crowd before heading towards a corner and discussing who will start the match as the referee calls for the bell.

***DING! DING! DING!***

Rosita & Sarita Vs Beth Scarlet & Natalie Neidhart

Rosita starts the match off for her teaming while Natalie and Beth discuss who should start for them with it seemingly being Beth who ultimately wins that discussion. The two women begin slowly circling the ring before both stepping forward to meet up in a lock-up in the middle of the ring. Beth immediately over powers Rosita and forces her back into the corner, driving her knee right up into the mid-section of Rosita. She pulls her out of the corner by the hair and lifts her high into the air before tossing her down to the mat with a ferocious body slam. Rosita clutches her back, rolling around of the mat in pain, as Beth reaches across the ring and tags in Natalie. Neidhart is into the ring quickly, as Scarlet makes her exit, and she pulls Rosita to her feet, and she uses forearm smashes to the face to weaken Rosita. Natalie bounces Rosita off the ring ropes and drops her to the mat with a hard clothesline. Rosita crumples down to the mat as Neidhart begins laying the boots in to her before tagging Scarlet back in. As their team is dominating this match, Scarlet calls for the end as she lifts Rosita up and over her head in a press slam position as Sarita jumps into the ring in an attempt to save her partner but Scarlet just tosses Rosita on top of her, sending both women crushing down to the mat. Neidhart jumps into the ring and stalks Sarita as she uses the ring ropes to pull herself up and Natalie clotheslines Sarita and herself up and over the top rope. Scarlet now stands over Rosita as she struggles to her feet and Beth pounces, hooking Rosita up and lifting her high into the air before bringing her crashing down to the mat with an AMAZON SLAM! Beth rolls Rosita onto her back and hooks her leg but it's merely a formality, ONE... TWO... THREE!! Scarlet and Neidhart pick up the dominant win!

Christy Hemme: Here are your winners, Beth Scarlet & Natalie Neidhart!!

Scarlet paint brushes Rosita's face as she gets her while Neidhart slides back into the ring and the referee raises both women's hands.

Taz: Well that was... dominant.

Mike Tenay: That's one way to put it! Decimating performance from Scarlet and Neidhart, they just destroyed Rosita & Sarita in what felt like a matter of seconds. I'm sure they'll both be in the hunt for the Knockouts Championship before too long.

Taz: No doubt about it. Those two women are damn tough. I can't think of many tougher than those two. They're definitely a threat to any Knockout what stands against them.

Neidhart and Scarlet both make their way out of the ring and back up the ramp-way as we cut backstage to a shot of Hulk Hogan and Sting who are heading towards the ring.

Mike Tenay: Oh man, this is going to be interesting.

Taz: These two men are going to go face to face with Aces & 8s and Hogan has told everyone in that locker-room to stay backstage no matter what happens!

Mike Tenay: Stay tuned folks, Hogan and Sting call out Aces & 8s next!

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

We come back from commercial to shots of the crowd who are all cheering as chants of TNA build up in the audience when the shot is drawn to the entrance way.

~#~#~#~#~ NANCY BOY ~#~#~#~#~

The fans pop at the sound of the opening notes of "Nancy Boy" by Placebo as Sting and Hulk Hogan make their way out to a tremendous ovation from the many fans packed up into the Impact Zone.

Mike Tenay: Here we go, Hulk Hogan and Sting have been talking about it ever since Bound For Glory and now the time has finally come for them to call out Aces & 8s in an attempt to finally put an end to this feud.

Taz: I'm not sure I'd call it a feud as much as a gang-war. Aces & 8s haven't waited for matches to deal with whatever problems they have, they take free roam and attack whenever they want.

Mike Tenay: Hopefully, that all comes to an end tonight as Hogan and Sting call out the group to sort this whole convoluted mess.

Both Hogan and Sting are now in the ring, each man with microphones in hand.

Hulk Hogan: I'm not here to be Hulk Hogan. I'm not here to tell you all to say your prayers and eat your vitamins. I'm here to end this thing with Aces & 8s right here, right now.

Sting: You know, this thing with Aces & 8s started a long time ago, way back in June, and for what? We still don't know what these guys want. Maybe they don't want anything, maybe they just want to create an issue. Who knows? Who really cares?

Hulk Hogan: The fact of the matter is that these guys have just come out and attacked people with no real rhyme or reason and it has to end. If they don't "want" anything and are doing this because it gives them some kind of kick or makes them feel special then that is a problem that they need to deal with. Don't come to our house, attack our talent and not expect to suffer the consequences.

Sting: Basically, we're sick and tired of you taking us out, us taking you out, random attack here, retaliation there. Aces & 8s, get your ass out here so we can end this thing... right here, right now.

They both turn their attentions to the entrance way, expecting Aces & 8s to make their way to the ring fairly but they don't. Instead, they slowly make their way out throughout the crowd, a total of five of them surround the ring and slowly slide into the ring, surrounding Hogan and Sting who now realise just what they've let themselves in for.

One of the masked men seem to be telling the others what to do and, indeed, when he tells them to attack, they do. Sting and Hogan do their very best to fight them off but the five on two numbers game is quick to catch up to them as Aces & 8s manage to beat both men down and begin another one of their gang-like muggings. The "leader" instructs one of the men to go outside and retrieve something as the others continue to beat down Sting and Hogan with boots and punches in the ring. The man slides out of the ring, reaching underneath the ring and retrieving a solid steel chair and... handcuffs?

He slides back into the ring and hands the handcuffs to the "leader" who instructs the rest of the group to get Sting up against the ring ropes as he handcuffs Sting up to the ring ropes. Sting is still hurting from the beat-down and is slumped up against the ropes as the group now continue beating down on Hulk Hogan as the "leader" retrieves the steel chair from his fellow Aces & 8s member. He calls for the group to pull Hogan to his feet as the "leader" winds up his steel chair and drives the steel chair hard into Hulk Hogan's skull. Hogan collapses to the mat and struggles to get to his feet as the camera shows Hogan's face and reveals that Hogan has been busted wide open by that chair shot to the head. Sting still attempts to struggle free but the cuffs are on tight and a members of Aces & 8s sees Sting struggling and begins beat him down once again, laying the boots into the prone former World Champion. One of the members swings the chair at Sting's legs, taking them out from underneath the Icon as he drops to the mat, clutching his legs in pain. The group now begin beating down the downed Hogan with several boots and punches before the "leader" grabs the chair and begins driving it down and onto the prone Hogan. One shot to his back, one shot to his side, one to his legs, another to his back and another and another and another!

The "leader" now begins driving the chair into Hogan's throat as he begins spitting up blood as his face is now covered completely in blood. The "leader" pulls his chair up once again and swings it across to Sting and takes him down with a shot to the head. He then swings back again and begins driving it down onto the prone Hulk Hogan three more times before tossing the chair aside and lifting his hands high above his head as the group leaving Hogan and Sting beaten senseless by the group as we cutaway to a video package.

~#~#~#~#~ VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

The black screen slowly switches to a shot of sun setting, of clouds flying by and of the waters on a beach disappearing back out to the sea from where it came.

Narrator: In the beginning, there was only man.

Shots of AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Sting and Samoa Joe all slowly fade in and out of shot.

Narrator: But the world soon evolved into something different.

We now switch to shots of Samoa Joe charging across ringside and booting Sting in the face, of Christopher Daniels leap off the top of Ultimate X and of Kurt Angle holding Jeff Hardy in an ankle lock.

Narrator: Now, we go back to the beginning to start things anew.

We now see shots from early TNA show, of AJ Styles and Jerry Lynn winning the tag team titles, of the first Ultimate X match before jumping to a picture of James Storm taking a swig out of a beer bottle before throwing it at the camera, smashing both the bottle and the camera.

Narrator: This... is our Genesis.


Coming soon...

~#~#~#~#~ END VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~
We return to the Impact Zone to see shots of the blood stained canvas following that horrific beat-down of Hulk Hogan just moments ago. We now cut to the announced position where both Mike Tenay and Taz look rather uncomfortable.

Mike Tenay: In... In all my years of... of being a broadcast journalist... I don't think I've ever... ever seen a more brutal, violent and bloody beat-down as the one we just witnessed moments ago.

Taz: I've been a part of some violent matches in my time and I've seen some nasty stuff but that was just... kinda scary actually.

Mike Tenay: They just... they literally just half beat him to death. There's no way they can get away with this.

Taz: Well, Hogan knew what he was letting himself in for when he decided he was going to call the group out. He told everyone to stay in the back no matter what happened. I'm not sure how smart a move that was but that's what happened.

Mike Tenay: But they just crossed a line. They could have killed the man. What happens then? They get off scot-free just because Hogan 'knew what he was letting himself in for'?

Taz: I'm not saying that and, besides, Hogan's not dead. The fact of the matter is, Hogan got into the ring and call them out. Whatever happened to him after that is his own fault for calling them out in the first place. You don't go and poke a bear with a stick and expect not to have to suffer any consequences, do you?

Mike Tenay: Regardless, we'll give you all an update on Hulk Hogan as soon if we get one before the end of the show. Hopefully, he'll be alright.

Taz: Say your prayers, that probably means more for Hogan now than it has ever done in his entire career.

Mike Tenay: Moving forwards, we've still got more to come on this already exhilarating show as James Storm will go one on one with Jeff Hardy and the TNA World Heavyweight Championship will be up for grabs.

Taz: Both men attempted to stake their claim to the belt earlier tonight and I feel like Storm came out on top of that exchange. Will he come out on top at the end of the night?

Mike Tenay: We also have the Impact debut of Dave Batista as he gets appears in front of a package TNA crowd for the very first time.

Taz: Dave will have plenty to say and I'm sure that, whatever he says, it'll end up make a big impact on someone.

Mike Tenay: And, when we come back from the commercial break, we'll have our huge eight man tag team match. Daniels, Kazarian, Aries and Ryan go up against Styles, Angle, Hennigan and Van Dam. That match is next!

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

~#~#~#~#~ HOLLYWOOD WHORE ~#~#~#~#~

We come back from commercial and are immediately met with "Hollywood Whore" by Papa Roach and the arrival of Joey Ryan, along with his girlfriend Tara. They pause atop the ramp and pose for pictures as if they were legitimate Hollywood A-Listers before making their way towards the ring for this huge upcoming 8-man tag team match.

Christy Hemme: The following contest, scheduled for one fall, is an eight man tag team match. First, making his way to the ring, from Hollywood, California, weighing in at 210 pounds, being accompanied to the ring by Tara; JOOOEEEYYYYYY RYYYYYAANNNNN!!!

Joey Ryan slides into the ring as Tara stands outside the ring and applauds her man as he poses in the ring as he music dies down.

~#~#~#~#~ THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED ~#~#~#~#~

It is replaced by "The Greatest Man That Ever Lived" by Weezer as Austin Aries steps out onto the stage.

Christy Hemme: And his partners, first, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, weighing in at 210 pounds; AAUUUSSSTTIIIINNNNN ARRRIIEEEESSSS!!!

He tosses his cape aside before making a b-line for the ring, not stopping for anyone and even shoving Tara out of the way before rolling into the ring and pacing up and down the ring. Joey Ryan gets in his face a little about shoving his girlfriend but Aries completely blows him off and continues pacing while staring at the entrance ramp as his music dies down.

~#~#~#~#~ DISPOSABLE ~#~#~#~#~

"Disposable" by Marilyn Manson plays and the third and fourth members of the team, Kazarian and Christopher Daniels, both make their way down to the ring with their tag team belts in tow.

Christy Hemme: And their partners, at a combined weight of 440 pounds, they are the current TNA Tag Team Champions of the world; CCHHRRIIISSSTTOPPPHHERRR DANNNIIEEELLLSSS and KAAAZAAARRRIIIAAANNN!!

Daniels and Kazarian are also down the ramp rather quickly, both sliding into the ring together before hopping up and onto the middle ropes on opposite sides of the ring, posing with their championship gold the loud sound of boos from the fans in attendance as their music now dies down.

~#~#~#~#~ HELP IS ON THE WAY ~#~#~#~#~

John Hennigan now appears for the first time in TNA to the sounds of "Help Is On The Way" by Rise Against and a lot of cheers from the fans in the Impact Zone. He is quickly followed out to the ring by the TNA Knockouts Champion Miss Tessmacher.

Christy Hemme: And their opponents, first, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 215 pounds, being accompanied to the ring by Miss Tessmacher; JOOOOOHHHHNN HENNNIIIGGANNNN!!!

Tara looks more than a little pissed as she begins yelling at Joey Ryan as Hennigan and Tessmacher make their way towards the ring stopping at the bottom of the entrance ramp as Hennigan's music dies down.

~#~#~#~#~ WALK ~#~#~#~#~

It's replaced by "Walk" by Pantera as Rob Van Dam makes his way out to the ring to the sound of cheers from the crowd.

Christy Hemme: And his partners, from Battle Creek, Michigan, weighing in at 235 pounds; ROOOBBB VAAAANNN DAAAAMMM!!!

Van Dam joins Tessmacher and Hennigan at the bottom of the ramp as the two men shake hands and Van Dam's music dies down.

~#~#~#~#~ I AM ~#~#~#~#~

The familiar sounds of "I Am" by Dale Oliver hit the sound system and the cheers are louder than most usual as AJ Styles makes his way out.

Christy Hemme: And from Gainesville, Georgia, weighing in at 215 pounds; the Phenomenal AJ STYYYYYLLEESSSSS!!!

Styles slaps hands with several fans as he joins Hennigan and Van Dam with Tessmacher at the bottom of the entrance way, slapping hands with both men before all three turn to face their opponents in the ring.

~#~#~#~#~ GOLD MEDAL ~#~#~#~#~

A huge ovation greets "Gold Medal" by Tha Trademarc as Kurt Angle makes his way down towards the ring.

Christy Hemme: And their partner, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, weighing in at 240 pounds; KUUURTTT AAAANNGGLLEEEEE!!!

Angle nods to Hennigan, Van Dam and Styles as all three men slide into the ring at the same time as their opponents step back into their corner, Aries and Ryan stepping out onto the apron to avoid confrontation with their opponents. Angle and Styles both climb out on the ring apron themselves as the referee calls for the bell to signal the start of the match.

AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, RVD & John Hennigan W/Miss Tessmacher Vs World Tag Team Champions Of The World, Austin Aries & Joey Ryan W/Tara

Kazarian starts the match off for his team while, on the opposite side of the ring, Rob Van Dam is starting things off for his team. Both men look very energetic as they bounce around the ring before locking up in the middle of the squared circle. Kazarian is able to garner the upper hand over RVD, forcing the former World Champion back up against the ropes before delivering a slap chop across Van Dam's chest, much to RVD's disapproval. Kazarian and RVD lock up again as Van Dam grabs a head-lock and brings Kazarian up and down to the mat before taking a side head-lock down on the mat. Kazarian writhes around on the mat, struggling to break free, but Rob's grip on his neck is firm as both men slowly get to their feet. Kazarian drives his elbows into RVD's mid-section, winding him, before dropping him to the mat with a swinging neckbreaker. Kazarian attempts the first cover of the match, ONE... TWO... RVD gets his shoulder up. Kazarian pulls Van Dam to his feet and pushes him back into his team's corner before tagging in Daniels and laying the boots in to the prone RVD. Kazarian climbs out of the ring as Daniels pulls RVD up by the hair and drives his forearm right up into Van Dam's face. Daniels now begins beating RVD back into the corner before attempting to whip him across to the other side of the ring before countering and bringing Van Dam back into a short-armed clothesline. Daniels drops to his knees and goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... RVD kicks out again before the three. Daniels looks more than a little frustrated by this before he gets to his feet and pulls Van Dam up, falling victim to a counter jaw-breaker that stuns Daniels and sends him falling back against the ring ropes. Van Dam whips Daniels across the ring and catches him as he comes back off the ring ropes with a spinning heel kick, taking Daniels down to the mat before RVD goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Daniels rolls his shoulder out before the three. Van Dam pulls Daniels up to his feet and slings him into the corner before leaping up and across, making the tag to Kurt Angle, before monkey flipping Angle out of the corner as Angle climbs into the ring.

Angle mounts Daniels and begins laying into him with several hard right hands with Daniels struggling to cover up. Kurt gets up to his feet, pulling Daniels up as well, before pummelling Daniels in the back with his forearm before slinging Daniels into the corner. Angle follows Daniels into the corner by beating him down with punches and kicks in the corner before whipping Daniels across the ring and Angle charges in after him but Daniels moves out of the way and Angle flies, shoulder first, into the steel ring post. Daniels quickly races across to his own corner and tags in Austin Aries. Aries is into the ring very quickly as he spots an opportunity to beat down on a prone Kurt Angle, laying the boots in to him as he struggles to get out of the corner. Aries pulls Angle out of the corner and drops him to the mat with a DDT before going for the cover, ONE... TWO... Angle kicks out. Aries pulls Angle up again and is caught by a big right hand from Kurt. Kurt throws and lands another right, sending Austin reeling back against the ropes. He whips Aries off the ropes and connects with a reverse elbow smash right to Austin Aries face before heading across to his corner and tagging in AJ Styles. Styles waits for Aries to get to his feet before he springboards off the ring ropes and takes Aries down with a diving clothesline. Styles goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Aries gets his shoulder up. AJ gets to his feet and lines Aries up before running towards him but Aries takes Styles down with a vicious clothesline that almost decapitates him. Austin Aries is quick to follow it up by going for a pin attempt, ONE... TWO... Styles kicks out. Aries drags Styles over to his corner before laying in a few boots to the prone AJ and he then tags in Kazarian. Kazarian pulls Styles to his feet and he throws a hard right hand at Styles, beating him back into the corner. Kazarian teases Styles by going to whip him into his own corner but, instead, sends him crashing back into his own corner with a sick thud as Kazarian's team mates all cheer him on. Kazarian lays some boots in to Styles before pulling AJ to his feet and slapping him hard across the face. AJ attempts to fight back before Kazarian manages to draw the referees attention by something he says which allows Daniels and Aries the opportunity to beat down Styles. Kazarian now tags in Joey Ryan.

Joey Ryan now lifts AJ Styles to his feet and drives his forearm into Styles face before pushing him back against the ring ropes. Joey whips Styles off the ring ropes and goes for a clothesline that Styles ducks underneath but Tara quickly grabs Styles foot, tripping him up out of sight of the referee. Ryan quickly takes advantage by dropping down and laying in a load of punches to the back of the fallen AJ Styles. Joey pulls Styles up and shoves him back into the corner, using his knees as weapons to drive the air right out of Styles. He whips AJ across the ring into the opposite corner and charges in with a corner splash before stepping back and letting AJ fall to the mat like a tree in the woods. Ryan rolls Styles onto his back and goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Styles gets his shoulder out before three. Ryan gets to his feet and reaches over, tagging in Austin Aries, who steps into the ring and begins laying boots in to Styles as Ryan exits the ring. Austin Aries pulls AJ to his feet, lifting him high into the air and holding him up for several seconds, allowing all the blood to flow to Styles head before dropping him down in a vertical suplex. Aries floats over into a cover, now hooking Styles leg, ONE... TWO... Kick out from Styles who really looks like he needs to make a tag here. Aries does a good job of cutting off the ring as he drags Styles back into his own teams corner before dropping to his knees and wrapping his hands around Styles' throat, literally choking the life out of him. Aries reaches up and tags in Christopher Daniels before rolling out of the ring as Daniels pulls Styles to his feet and whips him off the ropes before taking him down with a reverse STO. Daniels now steps across to the ropes, springing up and leaping off the ropes, coming crashing down onto Styles with the B.M.E. Daniels hooks the leg, ONE... TWO... THR-Shoulder up! Styles is barely still in this as Daniels gets to his feet looking very, very pissed off. He pulls Styles up and whips him off the ring ropes, going for a clothesline that Styles ducks underneath, and both men collide as they both go for a clothesline, now crashing into each other and plummeting down to the mat. Daniels rolls across to his corner as Styles attempts to crawl towards his own, desperate to make a tag. Daniels reaches up and tags in Ryan as Styles is just a foot or so away from making a tag but Ryan races across the ring and manages to grab AJ's foot before he can make the tag. Joey then drags AJ back into the middle of the ring by the boot before Styles attempts an enziguri head-kick but Ryan ducks underneath it and smirks but that smirk is quickly wiped off by... PELÉ!

Now is the chance as Styles leaps across the ring and...




















MAKES THE TAG TO HENNIGAN!!

John is quick into the ring and beats Joey Ryan to the punch, dropping him with a hard right hand. Ryan quickly bounces back up and goes straight back down as Hennigan delivers another big right hand. Hennigan now bounces himself off the ring ropes before coming back at Joey Ryan with a jumping leg lariat that sends Ryan rolling to the outside. Christopher Daniels quickly jumps into the ring to try and save his partner but Hennigan is ready for him, taking him down with a clothesline as Kazarian quickly follows Daniels into the ring. Hennigan cuts him off with a clothesline too but isn't quite ready for Austin Aries, who catches Hennigan with a forearm smash right to the back of the head, dropping Hennigan to the mat. This draws Kurt Angle into the ring as he races across the ring towards Austin Aries, hooking him up and delivering a big German Suplex. Aries is trapped in Angle's grip as he holds onto the move and takes him down with another big German. Aries is now on dream street as Angle delivers a third German, releasing his grip with the move this time before leaping to his feet to celebrate. Angles watches as Aries flops out of the ring when, suddenly, Daniels races across the ring and clotheslines both Angle and himself up and over the top rope and down to the concrete floor.

Rob Van Dam now climbs into the almost empty ring and looks around. He looks to Kazarian, who is still down on the mat following Hennigan's clothesline but then, out of the corner of his eye, RVD spots Joey Ryan getting to his feet on the floor. Van Dam bounces off the ring ropes but, before he can leap up and over the top onto Ryan, Tara stands over him and stops RVD in his tracks to the sound of boos from the crowd. Van Dam and Tara exchange a few words as Tara attempts to protect her boyfriend when Miss Tessmacher suddenly comes flying out of nowhere, spearing Tara into the steel guardrail at ringside and mounting her, beating her down with several slaps and punches on the floor. Van Dam now shrugs before running off the ropes again and leaping up and over the top rope, completely taking Joey Ryan out with a big flying plancha that almost flattens him like a pancake! Back in the ring, AJ Styles has Kazarian up and he delivers another PELÉ kick before Angle jumps in and quickly follows that up with a huge OLYMPIC SLAM that sends Kazarian flying across the ring and out to the concrete floor as we cut to the bottom of the entrance ramp where Austin Aries and Christopher Daniels are backing up the ramp, waving the match off as Angle and Styles beg them to come and face them in the ring. Hennigan is now in the ring with Ryan behind Angle and Styles and those two are the legal men! Hennigan quickly drives Ryan to the canvas with THE MOONLIGHT DRIVE!! Hennigan goes for the cover, hooking up the far leg, ONE... TWO... THREE!! Hennigan and his comrades pick up the victory!!

***DING! DING! DING!***

Christy Hemme: Here are your winners, the team of AJ STYLES, KURT ANGLE, ROB VAN DAM and JOHN HENNIGAN!!

~#~#~#~#~ HELP IS ON THE WAY ~#~#~#~#~

Rob Van Dam returns to the ring in time to raise his arms in the air with the rest of his team as they are announced the victors as we go to commercial.

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

We cut back from commercial to a replay of the finish of the 8 man tag team match.

"Hennigan has Ryan in the ring and those two are the legal men! Hennigan quickly drives Ryan to the canvas with THE MOONLIGHT DRIVE!! Hennigan goes for the cover, hooking up the far leg, ONE... TWO... THREE!!"

Mike Tenay: What a great match that was and a very impressive showing from Styles, Angle, Van Dam and, particularly, the debuting John Hennigan.

Taz: Hennigan was electric in that match and he'll be one hell of a talent in this company, hopefully for years to come.

Mike Tenay: Ladies and gentlemen, tonight may have been a huge night for TNA and we may still have plenty left to come but we also have another show next week! I've just gotten news through regarding next week's Impact and the TNA Tag Team Championships will be on the line as AJ Styles & Kurt Angle challenge Christopher Daniels & Kazarian for the gold!

Taz: Woah, that's huge! Another big match for Impact! Those match makers just keep knocking it out of the park, huh?

Mike Tenay: Styles and Daniels have challenged for the titles on numerous occasions but have often come up short in their quest to regain the gold. Next week on Impact could be their last chance to challenge for the gold so let's hope they can make it count.

Taz: We all know Daniels & Kazarian are a highly resourceful team. Not to mention, they really are one of the best tag teams in the entire industry. I'm sure they won't be rolling over for Styles and Angle.

As it looks like Mike is about to make another statement regarding the tag team title situation but he is cut off by this arrival.

~#~#~#~#~ BEAST AND THE HARLOT ~#~#~#~#~

The fans pop with a roar of approval as "Beast And The Harlot" by Avenged Sevenfold bursts out over the sound system as Dave Batista makes his way out to a tremendous ovation. Dave is dressed to the nines in the same beautifully tailored light grey suit he arrived in.

Christy Hemme: Ladies and gentlemen, at this time, allow me to introduce, from Washington, D.C, weighing in at 290 pounds; DAAAAAAVVVVE BAAAAATTTIIIISSSTTTAAAAA!!!

Batista poses on the ramp as the fans go crazy for this man, this behemoth, this superstar of the wrestling industry. Batista heads further down the ramp and jumps up onto the ring apron before stepping between the ropes and entering the ring. He looks around the Impact Zone as all the fans cheer his arrival to both the ring and the company. Batista is handed a microphone by Christy Hemme which he holds in his hand for a few moments, waiting for all the cheers to die down. As he does this, a huge "Batista" chant breaks out for the newcomer who looks more than happy to be back inside a wrestling ring. He adjusts his shades before finally speaking his first words on front of a TNA camera since signing for the company.

Dave Batista: Well isn't this something?

The cheers for Batista are evident as the fans chant for the new TNA superstar.

Dave Batista: Dave Batista in TNA? Who would have ever thought it?

Even louder cheers for Batista.

Dave Batista: I'll be honest, I never thought it would happen.

The cheers begin to die down but are still quite prevalent.

Dave Batista: You wanna know why? Do you want to know why Dave Batista thought he would never end up in TNA?

The majority of the crowd looks confused now but some fans are still cheering.

Dave Batista: Because this place f***ing sucks.

Batista's smile completely disappears as he removes his shades, placing them in his pocket, while his look becomes one of total disgust and those cheers that were coming from the crowd just moments ago are now all but completely gone, replaced by some very loud boos.

Dave Batista: It's true, TNA is a joke of a wrestling company.

While the boos are quite evident, a small contingent of the crowd continues to cheer for Batista but they are completely and utterly outnumbered.

Dave Batista: Your World Heavyweight Champion is a guy who is probably on more psychotics than most psyche patients. The number one contender is a raging alcoholic who actually brings his alcohol addiction to work with him. You've got a group of masked men running around the place, taking out the people that run the place as well as half the roster because security don't have a brain-cell between them.

The boos are constant now, even from the small group who were previously cheering, and they're getting louder and louder with each passing second.

Dave Batista: And that X-Division? Are you kidding me? It's just a bunch of brain-dead monkeys do flips and dives like that's entertaining. It's a fact, nobody cares about these people because they're too dull to actually go out and get themselves some real fans. If you're driving by a car-wreck, you don't just rush on by, you stop and look at the chaos, the broken bodies, the flames, the pain. That's why people watch the X-Division, it's a god damn just car-wreck.

The jeers are at an almost deafening level now as Batista continues to rip on TNA.

Dave Batista: As for the rest of the roster? It's just a bunch of shmucks, has-beens and hacks who could never make it in the real big leagues. If it weren't for the money they were paying me, I would have come anywhere near this place because it's just full of...

~#~#~#~#~ CRUSH YOU UP ~#~#~#~#~

Batista's eyes are drawn to the ramp-way as "Crush You Up" by Dale Oliver cuts him up and TNA Television Champion Samoa Joe makes his makes his way out to the ring looking more than a little PISSED OFF! He heads down the ramp in his ring gear with a towel around his neck, looking ready to fight! Batista just stands in the ring smiling as Joe doesn't mess around, sliding straight into the ring and getting right in Batista's face.

Taz: Joe doesn't look too happy!

Mike Tenay: I can understand why he wouldn't be!!

Taz: This could get real ugly, real quick!

Joe and Batista are clearly exchanging a few choice words despite those words not being picked up by a microphone, which is actually probably a good thing. After one particular exchange, Batista breaks out into a huge grin and nods before stepping backwards clearly saying 'ok' to Joe. He lifts the microphone back up to his mouth as Joe crosses his arms, looking just about ready to knock Batista out if he insults TNA again.

Dave Batista: So you're the 'great Samoa Joe', huh? Very... uh... impressive? Look tubby, I get it. You've been going toe to toe with a bunch of nobodies your entire career and you've beaten them all. I guess that makes you feel like you mean something but you don't.

Joe looks even more pissed already but doesn't immediately react to Dave's comments.

Dave Batista: When you're standing in the ring with me, with Dave Batista, you're in big leagues little boy. When you're face to face with the Money Machine, you're nothing in comparison Joe.

The fans vociferously boo and jeer Batista.

Dave Batista: You hear that Joe? These fans all agree with me, they think you're nothing too.

That just draws even louder boos from the Impact Zone.

Dave Batista: So what I want, right now, is for you to get down on your knees and apologise to Dave Batista for interrupting the true definition of greatness.

The boos are almost drowning Batista out now as Joe shakes his head leading to Batista tilting his head to the side, looking a little dumbfounded.

Dave Batista: No? Did you just say no to the Money Machine? Did you just say no to Dave Batista? Did you just say no... TO ME?!?

Batista lifts his right hand up and slaps Joe hard across the mouth.

Dave Batista: You never say no to me! Never! I'm Dave Batista!

He slaps Joe again!!

Dave Batista: I'm Dave god damn Batista, I'm the Money Machine, I'm...

Joe has had enough as his eyes roll up into the back of his head and he spears to the mat and begins wailing on him with several hard right hands as all the fans in the Impact Zone simultaneously explode!

Mike Tenay: Joe has had enough of this!

Taz: A man can only take so much abuse before he has to take action!

Batista manages to writhe free of Joe's grip while his jacket is now torn. He quickly tosses his jacket out of the ring before attempting to make his own escape but Joe is quick to pounce on him, pulling him back down to the mat.

Mike Tenay: Choke! Joe's got Batista in The Choke!

Taz: He's not quite got it synched it. Batista's struggling to keep Joe from getting his arm around the neck!

Indeed, Batista is struggling against Joe, trying to stop him from locking The Choke in tight before blindly throwing an elbow that catches Joe just below the eye, causing enough of a distraction to allow him the chance to break free of the move and escape the ring. Batista heads back up the ramp, looking a little scared as Joe gets to his feet in the ring, staring a hole straight through Batista before rolling his eyes up into the back of his head again.

Crowd: Joe is gonna kill you! Joe is gonna kill you! Joe is gonna kill you!

As the fans chants this, Batista looks from one side of the crowd to the other before shaking his head and backing up the ramp looking more than a little scared.

Mike Tenay: I guess Dave Batista just got a bit of a reality check.

Taz: Welcome to TNA Batista! What a way to be introduced to the company!

Mike Tenay: I'm sure this won't be the last time we see those two in a ring together.

Taz: I hope so Mike! Joe looks crazed! He looks like he's going to beat the living crap out of someone and Batista could end up being that someone!

Samoa Joe runs his thumb across his throat as Batista disappears backstage.

Mike Tenay: Samoa Joe is just about ready to kill someone!

Taz: Batista better watch his back because, in my opinion, he just pissed off the wrong guy.

~#~#~#~#~ Commercial ~#~#~#~#~

We come back from commercial straight to Mike Tenay and Taz at the announce desk.

Mike Tenay: What a show we've had tonight and it is coming to a close but how big a night has this been for TNA?

Taz: It has been a huge night for TNA. We've had debutants making an impact, if you'll excuse the pun, we saw the return of Chris Sabin, an victory for The Pope in singles action, King Mo knocked out Bobby Roode and Aces & 8s put Hogan in the hospital.

Mike Tenay: Ladies and gentlemen, we do have an update on Hogan's condition. He is stable but doctor's believe he has suffer multiple broken bones and will most likely be out of action for a very long time.

Taz: That beat down he suffered at the hands of Aces & 8s was absolutely brutal. One of the most violent things I've ever witnessed in my long career.

Mike Tenay: And, of course, just moments ago, we witnessed the arrival to TNA of Dave Batista.

Taz: We sure did and, like I predicted, Batista had plenty to say but he was cut off by Samoa Joe who didn't take too kindly to what Dave had to say about TNA.

Mike Tenay: Not just that but Batista actually going as far as to slap Joe across the face twice. Quite frankly, I'm surprised he's still breathing.

Taz: If Joe had his way, Batista probably wouldn't be breathing. He was lucky to get out of there in one piece. I'm sure Joe will be looking to get his hands on Batista sooner rather than later.

Mike Tenay: Right now, however, is the moment you've all been waiting. Ladies and gentlemen, your main event of the evening and it is for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

~#~#~#~#~ CRAWL ~#~#~#~#~

We cut to the entrance way as the cheers in the Impact Zone are very loud for "Crawl" by Kings Of Leon as it begins to play on the sound system and the number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, James Storm steps out for all the fans to see. Wearing no sunglasses and no cowboy hat, James Storm looks like he's ready to fight. He heads down the entrance ramp and down to the bottom of the ring steps before climbing up them and entering the ring to the sound of even more cheers. He begins pacing around the ring, grabbing a hold of the top rope and stretching himself out as his music dies down and we await the imminent arrival of the champion.

~#~#~#~#~ ANOTHER ME ~#~#~#~#~

The crowd also greets the sound "Another Me" by Dale Oliver & Jeff Hardy with a huge pop as the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy makes his way out towards the ring, championship gold wrapped tightly around his waist. He slaps hands with a bunch of fans and he makes his way towards the ring before heading around the ring, slapping hands with all of the fans around ringside, before sliding into the ring. He removes the title from around his waist as he lifts it high over his head to further cheers from the crowd. Christy Hemme takes it with the introductions.

***DING! DING! DING!***

Christy Hemme: The following contest, scheduled for one fall with no time limit, is your main event of the evening and it is for the TNA WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP!!

The fans around the arena cheer for the announcement of this huge Main Event for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

Christy Hemme: First, the challenger, from Leiper's Fork, Tennessee, weighing in at 230 pounds; he is the "Tennessee Cowboy" JAAAAAMES STOOOOOORM!!!

James Storm takes his moment in the spotlight, taking a step forward and pandering to the crowd a bit before heading back off to his respective corner.

Christy Hemme: And his opponent, from Cameron, North Carolina, weighing in at 215 pounds, he is the current, reigning and defending TNA Heavyweight champion of the world; the "Charismatic Enigma" JEEEEEEEEEFFFF HAAAAAARRRRDDDDYYYYY!!!

Jeff steps into the middle of the ring and throws his arm into the air, proudly holding the championship belt high above his head to camera flashes across the Impact Zone and loud cheers from the many Jeff Hardy fans in attendance. He then hands the belt off to the referee for tonight's contest, Earl Hebner, before stepping back into his corner. Earl holds the belt high above his head as part of the championship pre-match ritual before handing the belt to SoCal Val at ringside and checking that both men are ready to go before calling for the bell to signal the start of this huge main event match.

***DING! DING! DING!***


TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Jeff Hardy (c) Vs James Storm


As the bell rings the two men slowly begin circling each other, preparing to do battle in what is sure to be a titanic encounter. The two men step forward into a lock-up as the two men struggle for positioning, both men hoping to try and gain an advantage early on. James Storm, the bigger man, manages to over-power Jeff Hardy and he shoves Hardy back into the corner before driving his shoulder into the mid-section of the prone World Champion. Hardy is clearly in pain as he struggles for breath as Storm pulls him out of the corner and body slams Jeff Hardy down to the mat. Storm bounces himself of the ring ropes and drops an elbow across Jeff Hardy's chest before pressing his own weight down onto Hardy's chest in a pin attempt, ONE... TWO... Hardy gets his shoulder up. Storm gets to his feet and lifts Hardy up to his feet and tosses Hardy hard into the corner turnbuckle, his body bouncing back off the padding and collapsing to the mat from the whiplash impact of the move. Storm steps across to the fallen Hardy and pulls him up to his feet and shoves it back into the corner before pummelling on Hardy with several hard right hands before following up with a bunch of boots in the corner. The referee admonishes Storm as he beats down on Hardy before he uses his boot to choke Hardy in the corner. He breaks the choke at the refs count of four before pulling Hardy up and out of the corner and taking him down with a short-arm clothesline. Storm goes for another cover, hooking the leg this time, ONE... TWO... Jeff kicks out. As James Storm gets to his feet, he waits for Jeff to get to his feet before charging towards Jeff, going for a spear, but Hardy avoids the move and Storm goes flying out of the ring and down to floor. Hardy runs back, bounces off the ring ropes and lunges towards Storm with a baseball slide but Storm has it scouted, reaching in and pulling Hardy out of the ring by the legs and dropping him down onto the concrete floor. Storm pulls Hardy up to his feet and tosses him, back first, into the steel guardrail at ringside. Storm takes a few steps back and runs at Hardy but Jeff counters and sends James Storm flying into the fans with a back body drop. Hardy steps back and charges towards the guardrail running up and leaping off it onto James Storm with a clothesline right in front of all the fans at ringside. Jeff Hardy gets to his feet, surrounded by rabid TNA fans, and raises both his arms high into the air as all the fans around him cheer him on.

Jeff reaches down and pulls Storm up tossing him back up and over the guardrail down to the concrete floor at ringside. Hardy climbs up and over the guardrail himself before pulling Storm to his feet and tossing him, head first, into the steel ring post. Storm looks like he's in a lot of pain as he struggles around on the mat before being tossed back into the ring by Hardy as the camera shows his head and we can see James Storm has been busted open! The laceration isn't that bad but bad enough that blood is begin leak down Storm's face as he attempts to get to his feet as Jeff Hardy gets into the ring. He pulls Storm up by the hair as the blood continues to seep down his face and he delivers a right hand to his challenger. He nails him with another right and then another and then attempts another but Storm ducks underneath it and drives a knee into Hardy's mid-section, winding him. Storm brings his forearm crashing down onto Hardy's back before following it up with a DDT and a cover, ONE... TWO... Kick out by Jeff Hardy. Storm gets to his feet and pulls Hardy up to his before whipping him into the corner and Hardy leaps up and onto the top rope before coming crashing down onto Storm with a Whisper In The Wind. Hardy quickly follows the move up with a pin attempt, ONE... TWO... Storm kicks out at two. Jeff looks a little annoyed as he sits up but doesn't waste time crying over the near fall as he pulls himself up using the ring ropes before heading across towards James Storm. He heaves James Storm to his feet and boots him in the mid-section before running off the ropes, only to be caught a big one-armed side slam. Storm lands on top of Hardy in a pinning predicament, ONE... TWO... Hardy, once again, manages to get his shoulder up before the three count. Storm is now looking frustrated as he gets to his feet and pulls Hardy up to a vertical base. He winds his fist up and floors Hardy with a hard right hand that echoes throughout the Impact Zone, sickening impact on the punch as Hardy's neck snaps right back as he crashes against the canvas. Storm takes a moment or two to catch his breath and consider his next move as he watches an evidently sore Hardy struggle to get to his feet. He runs across towards Hardy and drops him with a running bulldog that he follows up with a pin attempt, hooking the far leg, ONE... TWO... Foot on the ropes! Hardy couldn't even muster the strength to kick out that time, he just got his foot and placed it upon that bottom rope to break the count.

As both men are clearly feeling the effects of this match, it is clearly James Storm who, despite having been busted open earlier in the match, is clearly in the drivers seat. He gets to his feet and begins laying the boots in to Jeff once again, stomping away at his chest and sternum as Jeff tries to cover himself up with what little strength he has left. Storm drags Jeff onto his feet by the hair and wildly swings his right arm but Jeff ducks underneath it and leaps at Storm, cross-bodying him up and over the top rope and out to the floor once again. Jeff comes down hard, clutching his side moments after landing, but James Storm looks like he might be completely out as he lays face down, completely prone on the floor. As Jeff struggles to his feet, using the guardrail for support, he realises Storm isn't moving and he plays it up to the fans before climbing up and onto the guardrail with the help of the fans in the front row. Jeff runs the tight rope of the guardrail comes flying down onto the downed James Storm with a big diving splash, bring all his weight crashing down onto Storm's back but, once again, hurting himself in the process. As the referee's count on both men reaches six, the fans begin boo-ing the idea of this match ending in a count out and a 'get in the ring' chant builds up around the Impact Zone as Jeff Hardy tries to get to his feet. He grabs a hold of the ring apron and uses it to steady himself as the referee's count hits eight and he leaps into the ring right on nine, just in time to break the refs count. Hardy rolls back out of the ring and struggles to get James Storm up before rolling the Tennessee Cowboy back into the ring and stopping to catch his breath before rolling back into the ring himself. Jeff rolls Storm into the middle of the ring to avoid suffering the same fate as he delivered to Storm moments ago with a rope break before he makes the cover, hooking up both legs, ONE... TWO... THR-NO! Storm somehow manages to kick out of the pin attempt before the count of three. Jeff is looking more than a little desperate now as he hops to his feet and heaves James Storm up and into position for a TWIST OF FATE but Storm counters and shoves Hardy, face first, into the corner turnbuckles. Hardy clutches his stomach and chest as he stumbles backwards out of the corner and immediately falls victim to a back suplex from Storm who goes straight for the cover, ONE... TWO... THR-KICK OUT! Jeff Hardy will not die here tonight! He simple refuses to give in!

Storm runs his hands through his hair and pounds the mat in frustration before getting to his feet using the ring ropes. Storm reaches down and pulls Hardy up to his feet but Jeff counters with a jaw-breaker that sends Storm falling down to the mat. Jeff Hardy now points to the corner and ascends up to the very top rope as the fans are going crazy, knowing exactly what's coming next... SWANTON! But wait!! Storm rolled out of the way and Jeff connected with nothing canvas! Storm is now to his feet, measuring Jeff, poised to deliver... LAST CALL-NO! Jeff ducks! TWIST OF FATE-COUNTER! LAST CALL-NO! Jeff ducks again but Storm takes out the referee!! Storm is stunned and Hardy attempts to capitalise on the moment as he attempts another TWIST OF FATE but Storm counters it and shoves Hardy towards the corner. Hardy manages to stop his momentum by using the ropes before he connects with the turnbuckles before turning into... LAST CALL! Jeff Hardy is down and out! We're going to have a new champion!!

...BUT THERE IS NO REFEREE TO MAKE THE COUNT!!

Storm counts the three but it doesn't matter, the referee is down and out cold following that missed Superkick. James gets to his feet and heads across towards the referee, shaking his prone body an attempt to revive him but to no avail. That referee is out cold! Storm turns around and reaches down to pull Jeff Hardy up when, out of nowhere, Jeff connects with a TWIST OF FATE! Storm is down and maybe out as Jeff climbs to the top rope once again before leaping off and connecting with a high impact SWANTON! Jeff hooks the leg... but still no referee! Jeff rolls across to the referee, shaking his body in an attempt to wake him but he has no luck in attempting to do so. He gets to his feet and tries to drag the referee across to the corner to try and stand him up using the turnbuckles but he can hardly move the refs body after suffering through this gruelling encounter. Jeff takes a moment to catch his breath as he turns around... LAST CALL! Jeff plummets to the mat like a tree falling in the woods but Storm is still hurting from the Swanton as well! He collapses to the mat, completely drained by this match as both he and Hardy lay flat out on the mat. Storm slowly begins crawling towards Hardy, looking to make a cover, as he drapes an arm across Hardy's chest. As he does this, the referee finally begins to come to and spots the pin, crawling across the ring to deliver the count!















ONE.....





















TWO.....































THREE!!


NO!!

Two and three quarters as Jeff Hardy barely, and I mean barely gets his shoulder up before the count of three.

James Storm is on his knees and he cannot believe it!

Storm gets to his feet and has his hands on his head, wondering what he's going to have to do to defeat Jeff Hardy. He now steps back and calls for another Superkick! The referee is now to his feet and watches as Storm calls for Jeff Hardy to get to his feet, hoping that this next Superkick will end the match. Hardy begins to get to his feet when suddenly...






CRACK!!

Out of nowhere, Austin Aries comes flying into the ring with the World Title belt and blasts Storm across the face right in front of the referee. Aries smirks as he stares down at the downed James Storm as Hardy finally staggers up and onto his feet, turning around just in time to see Aries hop out of the ring.

The referee has no choice but to call for the disqualification!

***DING! DING! DING!***

Jeff Hardy looks confused as he tries to regain his bearings and looks to Aries, not knowing Aries just laid out Storm. Hardy looks down at Storm and then looks to the referee who is talking to Christy Hemme regarding an official match result but the fans all boo, knowing exactly what is coming.

Christy Hemme: Your winner of this contest, as a result of a disqualification... JAMES STORM!!

Even more boos!

~#~#~#~#~ CRAWL ~#~#~#~#~

Austin Aries looks incredibly proud of his achievement as he backs up the ramp with the entire crowd booing and jeering him as Jeff Hardy looks on, a look of anger now etched into his eyes.

Mike Tenay: Austin Aries just screwed James Storm out of the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!

Taz: Hardy looks pissed and I'm sure that when Storm comes to, he will be too!

Austin Aries feigns tears at the top of the ramp as the fans continue to boo and jeer him while Jeff Hardy helps James Storm to his feet as Impact goes off the air.


Fade To Black...

Default Re: TNA 2013: A Revolution

JANUARY 10TH IMPACT PREVIEW & NOTES
The biggest news coming out of this week's edition of Impact is Dave Batista's confrontation with Samoa Joe. While there were talks of immediately pushing him into the title picture, officials believe that building towards a championship match further down the line at Slammiversary or Bound For Glory will prove more worthwhile. Apparently, Joe was one of the guys who went to several of the writers and pitched the idea of a feud with Batista. When the idea was brought into the writers room, it quickly caught steam and the push is now to keep Batista as a strong heel before turning him face at some point during his run towards the title. Batista was more than happy to hear of Joe's interest in feuding and the two are expected to collide at TNA's next Pay-Per-View event, Genesis.

• Other big news coming out of TNA following the 3-hour Impact is the overhaul of entrance themes, replacing them with non-TNA manufactured songs. The majority of superstars were asked to choose their own entrance music. While a few decided to keep their original themes (Samoa Joe, AJ Styles, Jeff Hardy, Kurt Angle, etc.), several superstars surprised fans with brand new entrance music. James Storm's new theme, "Crawl" by Kings Of Leon, was one of the more noticeable changes. The fact that Storm was allowed to choose such a popular mainstream song suggests that he is very highly thought of within the new TNA hierarchy. The idea behind the theme changes were to give TNA more of a bigger/mainstream feel to the company.

• John Hennigan is said to have impressed TNA officials with his attitude backstage. Many were worried that his infamous 'diva' attitude would rear it's head when he was first integrated with the rest of the roster but, apparently, he was very amiable with the rest of the TNA locker-room. They're also impressed with the brief work he did at the end of the eight man tag team match on Impact. The company are already looking to move forward with his pushed and he could be holding championship gold as early as this month.

• The World Title picture is an interesting picture as James Storm defeated Jeff Hardy but didn't walk out as the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion due to Austin Aries. While Storm is highly thought of within the company, many feel like he has too many title shots in big matches in recent times. While the idea of a Jeff Hardy Vs Austin Aries rematch is currently the most likely scenario, there is a strong push to give James Storm the match against Hardy. With TNA starting off in a new direction, the current belief is that the first Pay-Per-View should be headlined by a singles match, making a three way unlikely but the idea is not completely off the table. With the Pay-Per-View still several weeks away, anything could happen but with Austin Aries set to make an address regarding the title picture on Impact, they'll certainly be beginning to set up the championship match as early as this week.

• After his return to action last week, Chris Sabin is expected to challenge Zema Ion for the TNA X-Division Championship at Genesis. In the original plans when the match was announced, Jesse Sorensen was set to win the TNA X-Division Championship but the company soon discovered Sorensen would not be 100% fit for several months. They almost pulled the match altogether but Sorensen managed to talk them into letting him compete. The finish is said to have spun a few heads backstage as many members of the crew were said to be furious with Ion and Sorensen with using a move like the piledriver that is renowned for injuring necks. Sorensen is looked at as an innocent party and a lot of the backstage heat has fallen on Ion who has claimed it was Sorensen who suggested the finish.

• Finally, news regarding other TNA signings suggest we may be waiting a while to see the debuts of Finlay and Carlito. Both men are keen to make their first appearance for the company but, after so many debuts on the January 3rd show, TNA officials feel like they should stagger some of the newcomers to make them feel more important. Regarding other signings, Velvet Sky and Angelina Love are both expected to appear as early as this weeks show with Hamada expected to return the following week.

Preview For January 10th TNA Impact

Having exchanged victories on several occasions, these two teams have established themselves as the two top tag teams in the entire company. In recent times, however, Daniels and Kazarian seem to have had the upper hand over Styles and Angle. Having picked up a victory over Daniels and Kazarian in the eight man tag last week, Styles and Angle have earned another opportunity to challenge for the Tag Team Titles. Having failed to win the gold on several occasions in the past few months, if Styles and Angle fail to win the Tag Team Titles on this occasion, you can be sure that they'll be pushed to the very back of the contenders line. Can Styles and Angle finally turn their luck around and win back the Tag Team titles? Or will Daniels and Kazarian find another way of getting out with their title reign intact?

Samoa Joe defends TNA Television Championship!
Preview:
Following his collision with Dave Batista last week, it has been announced that Samoa Joe will be defending his TNA Television Championship against an unnamed opponent. Joe is sure to still feel more than a little wound up following the bad attitude that Batista showed him on Impact and he's more than likely to take it out on whoever ends up being named as his opponent. I don't think the question is whether or not Joe's opponent wins or not: it's whether or not he survives!

Austin Aries has something to say!
Preview:
Having cost James Storm the TNA World Heavyweight Championship last week, Austin Aries will open up Impact as he has something important to say. Having already claimed he deserves a rematch against Jeff Hardy for the World Title, you can be sure he'll have something to say regarding the World Heavyweight Championship picture. Is he going challenge Jeff Hardy to a championship match? Or will James Storm be a road-block on his path to regain the World Title?

Sting: The Aces & 8s Ultimatum
Preview:
With the news that Hulk Hogan will be out of action for several months, Sting has to continue this war against Ace & 8s without the General Managers help. Sting has now come out and said he will be on Impact to offer Aces & 8s an ultimatum that he hopes will end this thing. After what happened last week, you can be sure he won't be making the ultimatum without the help of some back-up. Hopefully, this doesn't end the same way last week's confrontation did.

Default Re: TNA 2013: A Revolution

The beginning video package really set the mood for the show. It hooked me and I wanted to read more. You have a talent for video packages. The format could improve but it was the bare minimum, which isn't bad because overformatting your shows is arguably worse.

The Match Of The Night was the 8 man Tag Team to me. In terms of content, I believe with the way you wrote it, it just seemed like my most favorable match.

Overall, this was a great show. Better than the average show on BTB, in my opinion. I did not get bored reading this at all either.

As far as the preview, I am going to the TNA Tag Team Champions to win.

Oh-Before I forget, Batista's debut was outstanding. The fact that he turned against TNA was great. Well written. Nevertheless, I honestly don't think Batista should be the unnammed opponet because he is too good for that championship. Other than that, I will be reading this show.

Side Notes: Little later than billed but I was ill the past few days. Without any further ado, enjoy the show!

(January 10th 2013, Live from The Impact Zone, Universal Studios, Orlando, Florida)
TNA Impact

**The Revolution Continues...**



We kick off the show with no pyro, just shots of fans inside the Impact Zone before the cameras are drawn to the entrance ramp.


~#~#~#~#~ THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED ~#~#~#~#~


The show is kicked off with a bang as The Greatest Man That Ever Lived by Weezer and the heat is deafening for one Austin Aries. Aries is in his trunks, bright pink fur-coat and sunglasses soaks in the boos as if he were a hometown hero returning to a tremendous ovation. Incredibly proud of his actions the previous week, Aries makes his way down the entrance ramp and towards the ring.

Mike Tenay:
Hello ladies and gentleman, I'm Mike Tenay and tonight's Impact show is kicking off with a bang as Austin Aries is here because "apparently" he has something to say. Personally, this guy makes me sick.

Taz:
That's a former World Champion you're bad mouthing Mike. You'd better hope he doesn't watch the show!

Mike Tenay:
Regardless of how you feel about him, Aries is firmly established as one of the top stars in this company and he seems to feel like he's entitled to a rematch against Jeff Hardy.

Aries is now in the ring with a microphone. His smirk stretches from ear to ear. He looks just the cat that just swallowed the canary.

Austin Aries:
Well aren't I just the best?

Boos ring throughout the arena for the cocky former TNA World Heavyweight Champion but Aries is too pleased with himself to care.

Austin Aries:
I'm charismatic, I'm gorgeous, I'm amaaaaaazing in bed...

The boos are even louder as we see shots of embarrassed looking women in the front row at ringside. Clearly former conquests...

Austin Aries:
And, most importantly, I'm the best wrestler on this entire planet.

As Aries gets serious, the boos begin to die down and are replace by an "Aries Sucks" chant that Austin acts oblivious to.

Austin Aries:
Allow me to break a piece of tremendous news that will please each and everyone just as much as I please every woman I've ever slept with.

Again, we see the same embarrassed looking former conquests...

Austin Aries:
Ladies and gentlemen, you are looking at your next TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

And, once again, the boos hit like a freight train. Louder and louder and louder.

Austin Aries:
That's right, that's right. Yours truly, Austin Aries, has decided to cash in his guaranteed rematch against Jeff Hardy at next month's Genesis Pay-Per-View where Austin Aries will, once again, become the TNA Heavyweight Champion of the world.

Aries is so smug, so arrogant, even I want to punch his cocky little face in!

Austin Aries:
But that's not for another few weeks. First, I want to address what happened during last weeks Main Event.

Constant boos as Aries references costing James Storm the TNA World Heavyweight Champion last week. You've never heard anything like it!

Austin Aries:
Now James Storm was set to walk out of Impact as the new TNA World Champion. He had Jeff on the ropes and was about to nail him with that Superkick when whamo! In comes Austin Aries, nailing him with the title he believed was within his grasp and, ultimately, snatching it away from him. I've actually had a lot of people ask me why I did it and, quite frankly, the answer is very simple: because he didn't deserve it.

The crowd doesn't agree with this as a very loud "f*** you Aries" chant rings throughout the Impact Zone.

Austin Aries:
I'm Austin Aries, I'm the number one contender, I should have been getting that shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, not some fat alcoholic cowboy who can barely get through a match without downing an entire bottle of beer.

Austin Aries hangs his head low, shaking it in disappointment.

Austin Aries:
James Storm, you have a problem but, fortunately for you, Austin Aries is here to help. So right now, I'd like to...


~#~#~#~#~ CRAWL ~#~#~#~#~


Right on cue, the crowd explodes as Crawl by Kings Of Leon hits and we are all witness to the arrival of JAMES STORM to the Impact Zone. Storm is in his street clothes; jeans and a T-Shirt. No cowboy hat and no sunglasses; just a microphone and a pissed off look in his eyes.

James Storm:
Austin, before you go any further, I'd just like to say one thing; you're full of s***!

Austin immediately removes his sunglasses and stares a hole through James Storm as the crowd chants Storm's name.

James Storm:
Aries, you screwed me over when I got my big opportunity so don't think that I won't do the same to you.

Aries immediately begins yelling towards Storm!

Austin Aries:
You wouldn't dare...

James Storm:
Oh, hell yeah I would!

Huge pop! Aries looks about ready to throw a fit.

James Storm:
If you get a title shot at Genesis, I will do everything in my power to make sure you don't walk out with that title either.

With the fans going crazy, Austin Aries pulls off his jacket and throws it down to the mat in a fit of rage and begins yelling at Storm.

Austin Aries:
I'm Austin Aries! I'm the next World Champion! You can't screw me! I'm Austin god damn Aries! I'm the best wrestler on the face of this planet. I'm...

Aries is cut off by Storm.

James Storm:
Sorry about your damn luck!


~#~#~#~#~ NANCY BOY ~#~#~#~#~


Storm is caught off-guard by the sounds of Nancy Boy by Placebo as Sting makes his way out onto the stage to a huge ovation. He doesn't look his normal self, clearly stressed out by this whole Aces & 8s situation. He steps across to James Storm and asks to borrow his microphone to which James Storm quickly obliges.

Sting:
Since Hulk Hogan isn't here and probably won't be around for a long time due to Aces & 8s, I've been appointed as the acting General Manager of Impact until a permanent replacement has been found.

The cheers are brief as Sting waves the fans down before continuing.

Sting:
So, we have a problem here because Austin Aries is right. Austin, you do have a guaranteed World Title rematch clause in your contract and that does mean you're entitled to a shot at Jeff Hardy.

Boos throughout the Impact Zone!

Sting:
On the other hand, James Storm didn't lose his title match.

Cheers throughout the Impact Zone!

Sting:
Hmmm, decisions, decisions, whatever shall I do?

Sting scratches his chin, pondering the thought for a moment or two before exploding into his old self.

Sting:
Oh, who the hell are we kidding Aries? You forfeited your right to a guaranteed rematch when you decided to screw James Storm out of the title. But you will get the opportunity to earn yourself a shot at the title tonight when you go one on one with James Storm with the winner going on to challenge Jeff Hardy for the World Heavyweight Championship at Genesis! Toodles!


~#~#~#~#~ NANCY BOY ~#~#~#~#~


Sting disappears to the back as James Storm is left standing at the top of the ramp with a huge smile on his face while Aries face is bright red as he is clearly pissed!

Mike Tenay:
That's huge news! What a way to kick things off here! Austin Aries, James Storm, one on one for a shot at Jeff Hardy's World Title at Genesis.

Taz:
It's gonna be one hell of a rocket-buster!


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


~#~#~#~#~ HOLLYWOOD WHORE ~#~#~#~#~


We return from the commercial break to Hollywood Whore by Papa Roach and the arrival of Joey Ryan along with his girlfriend, Tara.

Christy Hemme:
The following contest, scheduled for one fall, is for the TNA Television Champion. First, making his way to the ring, from Hollywood, California, weighing in at 210 pounds, being accompanied to the ring by Tara; JOOOEEEYYYYYY RYYYYYAANNNNN!!!

Joey Ryan and Tara both make their way down towards the ring to a few boos from the crowd.

Mike Tenay:
Welcome back to the show, I'm here with my broadcast colleague, Taz, and what a way to kick off the show with the announcement of tonight's main event.

Taz:
You're not kidding! James Storm and Austin Aries going at it for a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship! That's huge!

Mike Tenay:
That'll be later on tonight. Right now, Joey Ryan is about to get a shot at Samoa Joe and the TNA Television Championship and I'm not sure whether that's a good thing for him or not!

Taz:
I'm not sure he does either! After what happened with Samoa Joe last week, I have a feeling he's going to be out for blood.

Joey Ryan and Tara are now both in the ring as Ryan's music dies down.


~#~#~#~#~ CRUSH YOU UP ~#~#~#~#~


There is a huge ovation for Crush You Up by Dale Oliver and the arrival of TNA Television Champion Samoa Joe into the Impact Zone.

Christy Hemme:
And his opponent, from the Isle Of Samoa, weighing in at 280 pounds, he is the current, reigning and defending TNA Television Champion of the world; the Samoan Submission Machine, SAAAAMMMMMOOAAAAAA JOOOOOEEE!!!

Joe holds the Television Championship belt in his right hand but looks focused as he walks down the ramp with a purpose spring in his step.

Taz:
I don't want to be Joey Ryan right about now, Joe looks like he's about to break something.

Mike Tenay:
Joey Ryan might be the thing Samoa Joe is about to break. I guess we're about to find out.

Joe is now in the ring, handing the championship belt to the referee, not taking his eyes off Joey Ryan and he begins pacing back and forth like a caged animal in the corner. Joey Ryan looks a bit like a deer in the headlights as Tara slowly steps out of the ring, looking more than a little scared herself. She wishes Joey luck, he's definitely going to need it as the referee hands the title off to SoCal Val at ringside before calling for the bell to signal the start of match.


***DING! DING! DING***


TNA Television Championships
Samoa Joe (c) Vs Joey Ryan W/Tara



As the bell rings, Joe races across the ring and charges Joey Ryan into the corner and begins beating the living crap out of him. Pounding on Joey Ryan with a flurry of vicious right hands, Joe is laying a real beat down on his challenger. Joe pulls Ryan up out of the corner and slaps his hand down onto Joey Ryan's chest, leaving a massive red mark on Ryan's chest. Joe whips Joey Ryan off the ring ropes and catches him coming back off the ropes with a whiplash, vicious power-slam. Joey Ryan's body bounces off the canvas and begins flopping around the ring as Tara clasps her mouth as she witnesses her boyfriend get destroyed by a very angry Samoa Joe. Joe pulls Joey Ryan up by the hair and presses him up and over his head before tossing him down to the concrete floor!! Joe steps back and charges across the ring... ELBOW SUICIDA! Samoa Joe almost kills Joey Ryan with the flying forearm smash into the steel guardrail! The fans are going wild but Joe doesn't care to acknowledge them as he pulls Joey Ryan back towards the ring before slinging him, head first, into the steel ring post. Joey Ryan's head crashes off the ring post and he has a glazed look in his eyes as he tries to head towards the guardrail to get the hell out of there but Joe isn't letting him get away, literally dragging him back to the ring by the hair before throwing him into the ring. Joe rolls back into the ring himself and begins laying the boots in to the downed Joey Ryan. He reaches down and heaves Joey to his feet before pushing him back into the corner before whipping Ryan into the opposite corner, following in with a corner splash, before whipping him straight back and nailing another corner splash. He pulls Joey up onto the top rope, setting him up... MUSCLE BUSTER!! Samoa Joe floats over and makes the cover, ONE... TWO... THREE!! NO! Tara just pulled the referee out of the ring! Joe gets to his feet and spots Tara standing out the ring with the referee laid out next to her and realises what happened before jumping out of the ring and chasing after her. Tara runs around the ring before rolling into the ring and attempting to escape up the entrance ramp but she is cut off by Joe. Tara immediately begins backing away from Joe as he looks about ready to snap her in half when...




CRACK!

Joe immediately drops to a knee, almost knocked clean out by a chair shot to the back of the head from...



















DAVE BATISTA!!

Batista blasts Joe in the back again with the chair a second time! Joe is staggered! He struggles to try and get to his feet but is promptly met with a third steel chair shot, right to the back of the head once again. Samoa Joe drops down onto his knees, clutching the back of his head, as Batista now stands in front of Joe and winds up the chair... WAIT! JOE'S BLOCKING THE ATTEMPTED CHAIR SHOT! Batista struggles against Joe but still can't overpower him, even after delivering three sick chair shots to the Samoan Submission Machine! Joe slowly begins to get to his feet when Batista draws his foot back and... LOW BLOW! The son of a bitch nailed Joe with a low blow, dropping him back down to his knees once again before driving the chair down onto the top of his skull with all his might, wrapping the chair right around Joe's head and knocking him unconscious. Batista begins to laugh as he stands over the fallen Joe before tossing the chair out of the ring before exiting the ring and heading back up the ramp as the crowd boo and jeer him. As this has all happened, Joey Ryan has come to and spots his opportunity, slowly crawling across to the fallen Joe and draping an arm across his prone, lifeless body. Tara rolls the referee back into the ring to make the count! ONE..... TWO..... THREE!! Joey Ryan steals the Television Championship!


***DING! DING! DING***


Christy Hemme:
Here is your winner and the NEW TNA Television Champion... JOEY RYAN!


~#~#~#~#~ HOLLYWOOD WHORE ~#~#~#~#~


Tara retrieves the TNA Television Championship, rolls into the ring and pulls Joey out of the ring before holding him up as they both celebrate as Dave Batista stands at the top of the ramp way watching Joe in the ring.

Mike Tenay:
That god damn son of a...

Taz:
Whoa! Watch your mouth Mike!

Mike Tenay:
I just can't believe this guy. He comes in to our company, attempts to bury our wrestlers and now he has cost Samoa Joe the TNA Television Championship? I hope someone teaches that piece of crap a lesson.

Taz:
I may not quite agree entirely with what you're say but I appreciate the sentiment behind the words. I don't doubt that Joe will be looking to get his hands on Batista where ever and whenever he can but what about Joey Ryan? We got a new TV Champ!

Mike Tenay:
... Are you kidding me?

Taz:
No, Joey Ryan just won the TNA Television Championship. It doesn't matter how he did it, the record books will say that Joey Ryan defeated Samoa Joe to become the...

Mike Tenay:
We'll be right back.

The last shot we see before the break is of Samoa Joe staring down Batista; hate, rage and fury all etched into his eyes.


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


We return from commercial to see Jeremy Borash standing by in the backstage interview area with The Pope D'Angelo Dinero.

Jeremy Borash:
Hey everybody, I'm Jeremy Borash, standing here with The Pope, D'Angelo Dinero. Pope, you were out of action for a several months before you made your return last week on Impact. All things considered, how are you feel?

D'Angelo Dinero:
The Pope is feeling great. I'm excited to be back and I feel like I could take on the entire roster all by ma' self...

He suddenly stops and turns to the camera.

D'Angelo Dinero:
Not that I'm saying I want to face the entire roster. Y'know how is it.

Jeremy Borash:
In your return match, you managed to pick up a big victory over former TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Mr Anderson. How important do you feel that win is and where you think it will take you next?

D'Angelo Dinero:
Well, Anderson has a bit of an attitude problem. He seems to think that he above everyone else, that he aughta be treated... "special". The thing is...

Pope is cut off as the microphone is snatch out of his hand by none other than Mr Anderson.

Mr Anderson:
"The thing is", what?

D'Angelo Dinero:
The thing is, you got humbled.

Mr Anderson:
Oh yeah?

D'Angelo Dinero:
Yeah.

The two men go nose to nose as Borash is seen backing up with wide eyes in the background.

Mr Anderson:
That's an interesting perspective. My perception of the situation is that you got lucky.

D'Angelo Dinero:
Lucky? Foo', I pinned you in the middle of dat ring. No luck needed for The Pope.

Mr Anderson:
Why don't we test your theory out? How about a rematch next week?

D'Angelo Dinero:
You sho'? I beat yo' ass once, don't wanna have to have it again.

Mr Anderson:
I'm sure because you haven't beat my ass and you won't beat my ass next week. There will be one winner and that will be MIIIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSTEEEERRRRR...

D'Angelo Dinero:
POPE!

Anderson looks pissed as Pope snatched the microphone away from him before he could finish. Pope smiles before pressing the mic to his lips again.

D'Angelo Dinero:
Pope.

Dinero pushes the mic into Anderson's chest before disappearing off camera as the camera is focused solely on Anderson for a few seconds, just long enough to catch his last word on the matter.

Mr Anderson:
Asshole.

Mr Anderson and The Pope go one on one again next week on Impact!

~#~#~#~#~ VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

The black screen slowly switches to a shot of sun setting, of clouds flying by and of the waters on a beach disappearing back out to the sea from where it came.

Narrator:
In the beginning, there was only man.

Shots of AJ Styles, Kurt Angle, Sting and Samoa Joe all slowly fade in and out of shot.

Narrator:
But the world soon evolved into something different.

We now switch to shots of Samoa Joe charging across ringside and booting Sting in the face, of Christopher Daniels leap off the top of Ultimate X and of Kurt Angle holding Jeff Hardy in an ankle lock.

Narrator:
Now, we go back to the beginning to start things anew.

We now see shots from early TNA show, of AJ Styles and Jerry Lynn winning the tag team titles, of the first Ultimate X match before jumping to a picture of James Storm taking a swig out of a beer bottle before throwing it at the camera, smashing both the bottle and the camera.

Narrator:
This... is our Genesis.




Coming soon...

~#~#~#~#~ END VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~



Taz:
Before I was so rudely interrupted by my colleague, I was talking about Joey Ryan's huge victory over Samoa Joe to become the new TNA Television Champion!

Mike Tenay:
Under the most questionable of circumstances.

Taz:
A win is a win.

Mike Tenay:
Are you condoning the actions of "that man"?

Taz:
Not at all. I doubt Joey Ryan is either but he spotted an opportunity, he took advantage and he gain a championship from it.


~#~#~#~#~ HOLLYWOOD WHORE ~#~#~#~#~


Before the argument can carry on any further, Hollywood Whore by Papa Roach hits and Tara makes her way back out towards the ring where her partners, Gail Kim and Madison Rayne, are both already in the ring.

Mike Tenay:
Having just picked up a huge 'team victory' accompanying her boyfriend to the TNA Television Championship, Tara is now back out here to compete against The Beautiful People and the TNA Knockouts Champion, Miss Tessmacher.

Taz:
Tara's got her eyes on the prize and she wants to get her hands on the Knockouts Championship. We could be looking at one half of the power couple here in TNA if she and Joey Ryan both hold gold.

Tara is now in the ring as she and her team mates await the arrival of their opponents.


~#~#~#~#~ DON'T CHA ~#~#~#~#~


They don't wait long as "Don't Cha" by The Pussycat Dolls begins to play the crowd erupts as The Beautiful People make their way out towards the ring.

Mike Tenay:
The Beautiful People making their TNA return right here, right now.

Taz:
They have been sorely missed by yours truly!

They both stop at the bottom of the ramp before turning and pointing towards the top of the entrance ramp and to the arrival of TNA Knockouts Champion Miss Tessmacher who makes her way out towards the ring... in a Beautiful People T-Shirt!

Taz:
Miss Tessmacher... in a Beautiful People T-Shirt?.

Mike Tenay:
Does that mean she's a part of the group?

Taz:
I'm as clueless as you Mike.

All three women slide into the ring and the heels back up into a corner. Both teams head back to their respective corners and begin deciding who will start the match for each team as the referee calls for the bell.


***DING! DING! DING!***


The Beautiful People & Miss Tessmacher Vs Tara, Gail Kim & Madison Rayne


Gail starts the match off for her team and Velvet does the same for her own. The two Knockouts lock-up in the middle of the ring and battle with each other for ring position, Gail Kim taking the advantage and locking Velvet in a side head-lock, wrenching away at her head and neck. Gail snaps Velvet up and over with a Snapmare takedown before locking her up in a chin-lock. Velvet struggles against Gail but she wrenches away at the chin and the neck before driving her knee right down into Velvet's back. She pulls Velvet up by the hair and shoves her back into the corner before tagging in Tara. The two women begin laying the boots in to Velvet in the corner before Gail steps out of the ring and Tara pulls Velvet across to the middle of the ring before suplexing her down to the mat. Tara rolls over into a cover, ONE... TWO... Velvet rolls her shoulder up. Tara pulls Velvet up by the hair and sets her up for another suplex but Velvet counters with a drop toe-hold and lays a few boots in to the downed Tara before tagging in her, Beautiful People cohort, Angelina Love. Angelina gets into the ring and meets Tara as she gets to her feet with a forearm right to the mouth, pushing Tara back against the ring ropes before whipping her off and attempting a clothesline that Tara ducks under before blasting Love with a hard right hand right to the face, stumbling Angelina. Tara grabs Angelina and pulls her into a press-slam, holding her up above her head and staring straight at the TNA Knockouts Champion as she does so before stepping out from underneath Angelina, allowing her to plummet down to the mat below. Tara drops down and goes for another cover, ONE... TWO... Angelina kicks out. Tara looks a little frustrated as she gets to her feet and pulls Angelina up but Love counters with a jaw-breaker and then boots Tara in the mid-section dropping her to a knee. Angelina steps across the ring and tags in Miss Tessmacher to a loud ovation from the crowd as Tara gets to her feet and spots Tessmacher across the ring. She stops, smirks and then steps across to her corner, tagging in Madison Rayne to the sound of boos from the audience. Tara wags her finger at Brooke as if to say 'not right now' as Madison gets into the ring and spears Brooke down to the mat. Madison mounts Tessmacher and begins tugging away at her hair as the referee admonishes her. She gets to her feet, shouting at the referee as she does so and backs him up into the corner with an angry look on her face. She steps back before letting out a banshee like yell as she turns around to be greeted by a boot to the gut from Brooke Tessmacher.

Brooke goes to set Madison up for a DDT but, as she does so, the cameras cut away from the ring to show Beth Scarlet and Natalie Neidhart both standing at the top of the entrance ramp, watching the match as it unfolds in the ring.

Tessmacher is distracted by this and allows Madison to slip out and nail Brooke from behind with a forearm to the back of the head. Scarlet and Neidhart are conversing with each other over what's going on in the ring; not getting involved, just watching. Madison sets Brooke up for the RAYNE DROP but Brooke counters... TESS-SHOCKER! Brooke immediately rolls Madison over and goes for the cover as Velvet and Angelina both jump in and cut off Tara and Gail before they can break up the pin, ONE... TWO... THREE! Tessmacher and The Beautiful People pick up the win!


***DING! DING! DING!***


Christy Hemme:
Here are your winners... THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE and MISS TESSMACHER!


~#~#~#~#~ DON'T CHA ~#~#~#~#~


The Beautiful People and Miss Tessmacher all celebrate in the ring and their arms all raised aloft is the last thing we see as we go to commercial.


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


As we return from commercial, we arrive at the announce table and to Mike Tenay and Taz.

Mike Tenay:
Welcome back to Impact. We've already had one title change hands tonight as Joey Ryan defeated Samoa Joe to become the new TNA Television Champion with a lot of help from Batista. Will we see another change hands later on in the show when AJ Styles and Kurt Angle challenge the World Tag Team Champions Of The World with the titles on the line?

Taz:
Also later on tonight, we'll see Sting give them Aces & 8s group an ultimatum that could end this feud between the group and TNA as a whole.

Mike Tenay:
To top all that off, we will name a number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship as James Storm and Austin Aries do battle with the winner advancing to challenge Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship next month at Genesis. Right now, we've got JB standing by with an update on the status of Jesse Sorensen who reinjured his neck last week in his match with Zema Ion. Take it JB!

We cut away to Jeremy Borash who is backstage in the interview area.

Jeremy Borash:
Thanks Mike. The news regarding Jesse Sorensen is very unfortunate considering he was out of action for a long time, having broken his neck back in February of last year. He was out of action for almost a year with that injury. After suffering a piledriver at the hands of X-Division Champion, Zema Ion, Sorensen had to be carried out on a stretcher and the news is not looking good at the minute. The news is that he has, in fact, stressed the fracture and, while it is said to not be quite as severe as the original injury was, he will be out of action for several more months before...

???:
Before I beat his ass again.

The camera pans around to reveal Zema Ion stepping onto set. We can hear a lot of boos coming from the crowd as he smiles at Borash, readjusting the X-Division Championship belt which rests upon his shoulder.

Zema Ion:
I injured Sorensen once, he came back so I injured him again. It's not complicated. I did that to him and I'll do the same to anyone else who thinks they can take this X-Division Title away from me. If that means injuring the entire X-Division then so be it. I will take on anyone and I will...

???:
Lose.

Now it's Chris Sabin who's interrupting Zema Ion. Sabin stands right opposite Ion.

Chris Sabin:
You'll lose because, if you step up and take on anyone, then you'll face me and you'll do it tonight!

There's a huge roar of approval from the crowd.

Zema Ion:
Woah, woah, woah. Hold on there a minute, I'm the TNA X-Division Champion hombre. You don't come to me and try and call me out when it's my time and I don't fight on the terms of anyone who challenge's me. I fight on my terms. You want a shot, you'll get it but you'll get it when I'm ready, Sabin.

The two men are nose to nose as we cut back to the announce position once again.

Mike Tenay:
Some heated words exchanged between champion and potential challenger.

Taz:
Sabin aughta be careful. Ion's already taken out several X-Division guys and Chris is in a very similar position to that of Jesse Sorensen. He was on the shelf for a long time before making his return last week. Ion knows that and, if they do step into the ring with each other, I'm sure he's more than willing to try and take advantage of that fact.


~#~#~#~#~ BRITISH INVASION ~#~#~#~#~


At that moment, British Invasion by Dale Oliver begins playing and the fans greet the arrival of Magnus with a loud chorus of boos. The Brit looks out at the crowd with a look of disgust before heading down the ramp-way towards the ring.

Christy Hemme:
The following contest is scheduled for one fall. First, making his way to the ring, from Norfolk, England, weighing in at 240 pounds; MMMAAAGGGNNNUUUSSS!!!

Taz:
This one super impressive dude and a physical specimen to boot.

Mike Tenay:
You're right, Magnus is built like a brick wall and is very talented for someone so young.

Taz:
This guy definitely has the potential to do some seriously big things in the future.

Magnus enters the ring and begins pacing as he awaits the arrival of Rob Van Dam.


~#~#~#~#~ WALK ~#~#~#~#~


Walk by Pantera replaces it as Rob Van Dam steps out to a tremendous reception from the crowd.

Christy Hemme:
And his opponent, from Battle Creek, Michigan, weighing in at 235 pounds; ROOOBBB VAAAANNN DAAAAMMM!!!

Mike Tenay:
A former TNA World Heavyweight Champion, Rob Van Dam must surely be looking to try to regain that title before too long.

Taz:
I know Van Dam very well and the guy feels naked without gold. I expect to see him challenging for some kind of title before too long.

Rob Van Dam slides into the ring and stands opposite Magnus as the referee calls for the bell to signal the start of the contest.


***DING! DING! DING!***


Rob Van Dam Vs Magnus


Both men look ready to go to town on each other as they both lunge forward and lock up in the middle of the ring, tussling for positioning. Being the bigger man, Magnus gains the upper hand and forces RVD back against the ring ropes before reeling off with several chops to the chest of "Mr Thursday Night" before whipping him off the ring ropes and catching him with a big shoulder tackle. Magnus goes for a quick cover but Van Dam scoots out of it before a count can even take place. Both men quickly climb to their respective feet and lunge at each other again, reeling off punches on each other this time around. Van Dam manages to gain the upper hand this time around and beats Magnus back against the ropes. He whips Magnus off and brings him crashing down to the canvas with a Spinning Heel Kick right to the Brits face. Van Dam quickly jumps on top of Magnus and hooks his leg up, ONE... TWO... Magnus slips the shoulder out. Rob is to his feet and pulls Magnus to his by the hair, driving his knee up into Magnus' mid-section. He drives his forearm down onto the Magnus' back before shoving him back into the corner and begins laying into him with several hard kicks to the sternum before stepping back and running towards Magnus, attempting a monkey flip, but Magnus shoves Van Dam off and races across the ring, almost flattening him with a clothes. Magnus lifts Van Dam up to his feet, heaves him up into the air and drops him down with a suplex into a float over pin fall attempt, ONE... TWO... RVD kicks out. Magnus looks to have the edge over Van Dam now as he pulls him up to his feet once again, nailing him with a stiff right hand on the way up. Magnus whips Van Dam off the ropes and drives him down to the mat with a hard and echoing spinebuster slam and he quickly follows it up by going for another cover, ONE... TWO... Van Dam gets his shoulder up. Magnus gets to his feet and reaches down, pulling RVD to his feet to before Van Dam counters into a small package, ONE... TWO... Magnus slips out and leaps to his feet before he charges at RVD as he is up and spears him through the middle ropes and out to the outside!!

Both men hit the floor hard as both roll around on the mats in pain as we cut away to commercials.


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


We return from the commercial break to see Van Dam laying kicks in to Magnus in the center of the ring as Magnus is clearly staggered. Van Dam bounces himself off the ropes and baseball slides between Magnus' legs, pulling them out from underneath him and driving his face down into the canvas. RVD leaps to his feet and jumps down onto the back of Magnus' head, slamming his face into the mat a second time as Magnus rolls onto his back, clutching his nose. Van Dam looks to Magnus and then looks to the crowd before bouncing himself off the ropes again... ROLLING THUNDER! Wait-No! Magnus got the knees up. Van Dam clutches his back in agony as he rolls around in the middle of the ring . Magnus gets to his feet and pulls RVD up by the hair before dropping him to the mat with a ferocious looking Spiked-DDT. He drops down to his knees and goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... THR-Van Dam kicks out! The closest fall of the match so far! It was almost over there and then! Magnus climbs to his feet and pulls RVD up by the hair, nailing him with a knee to the ribs that stumbles Van Dam. Magnus lines RVD up and goes for a big clothesline but RVD ducks underneath it and brings Magnus down into a pinning predicament with a cradle, ONE... TWO... THR-Magnus slips out just before the three! Another close one! Van Dam quickly rolls to his feet and catches Magnus with a back kick to the face before leap up and off the ropes with a diving kick right to Magnus face. Magnus stumbles but doesn't go down as RVD looks shocked. He steps back and charges towards Magnus ducking underneath another clothesline attempt and bringing Magnus down into a Crucifix pin, ONE... TWO... Magnus slides out before being flatten as he runs straight into Van Dam's boot, collapsing to the mat like a tree in the woods. Van Dam spots his opportunity, elevating himself off the ropes and attempting a split-legged moonsault but Magnus avoids the contact and Van Dam manages to land on his feet before Magnus nails RVD with a big European Uppercut, knocking Van Dam back into the corner. Magnus goes for a corner splash but RVD avoids the contact and flies across the ring before flattening Magnus with a huge diving spinning heel kick. Magnus is down as Van Dam leaps up to the top rope again... FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH! Van Dam clutches his mid-section before rolling back on top of Magnus to make a cover, ONE... TWO... THREE!! A good win for RVD against a very game Magnus.


***DING! DING! DING!***


Christy Hemme:
Here is your winner... ROB VAN DAM!


~#~#~#~#~ WALK ~#~#~#~#~


Rob Van Dam jumps up onto the middle ropes and does his famous self-indulgent celebration as the fans chant along with him and we cut away to commercial.


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


We return from commercial to see a replay of the finish of the last match.

Magnus goes for a corner splash but RVD avoids the contact and flies across the ring before flattening Magnus with a huge diving spinning heel kick. Magnus is down as Van Dam leaps up to the top rope again... FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH! Van Dam clutches his mid-section before rolling back on top of Magnus to make a cover, ONE... TWO... THREE!! A good win for RVD against a very game Magnus.

Mike Tenay:
An impressive win for Rob Van Dam against a tough opponent in Magnus.

Taz:
Great performance from Van Dam picking up his second win in as many weeks. He's definitely on a roll here.

Mike Tenay:
No doubt about it Taz. Van Dam on a roll but ladies and gentlemen, last week we had a huge edition of Impact as we return from a brief hiatus with a huge bang with a pulsating edition of the show.

Taz:
If you missed the show, you really dropped the ball because the show was freaking awesome! We saw several wrestlers making their in-ring debuts for the company with John Hennigan being the stand out of those for me.

Mike Tenay:
I can't really argue with that. Hennigan looked awesome during the eight man tag team contest last week that saw him pick up a pinfall victory over the man we now know as the TNA Television Champion, Joey Ryan.

Taz:
While there were some great moments, there were also some... darker moments.

Mike Tenay:
What Taz is referring to is what happened when Hulk Hogan and Sting called out Aces & 8s.



Quote:
~#~#~#~#~ VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

The video package opens to a shot of Hulk Hogan and Sting making their way to the ring last week on Impact. We quickly switch through shots of the crowd, shots of Hogan and Sting in the ring before cutting to Hogan on the mic.

Hulk Hogan:
I'm not here to be Hulk Hogan. I'm here to end this thing.

We now cut to a shot of Sting on the mic.

Sting:
This thing with Aces & 8s started a long time ago.

Now back onto Hogan.

Hulk Hogan:
These guys have just come out and attacked people with no real rhyme or reason and it has to end.

Sting:
Basically, Aces & 8s, get your ass out here so we can end this thing.

We now cut shots of Aces & 8s surrounding the ring, slowly sliding into the ring.

Hogan and Sting's faces tell the story...

Attack!

We now see various shots of Aces & 8s members attacking Sting and Hogan, beating both men down.

We now see a member of the group with handcuffs and a steel chair!

We see Sting being handcuffed against the ropes as the "leader" of the group drives the chair into Hulk Hogan's skull.

We see Hogan's face is busted wide open.

We see Sting attempting to break free before another member of the group swings a chair into the back of Sting's legs, taking them out from under him.

Finally, we see the "leader" driving the chair into a prone Hogan time after time after time before driving the chair into Hogan's throat so he begins spitting up blood.

The "leader" swings chair one last time, almost taking Sting's head clean off.

The last shot of the video package is of both Hogan and Sting laid out in the ring.

~#~#~#~#~ END VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

~#~#~#~#~ NANCY BOY ~#~#~#~#~


We immediately see the entrance way as we cut away from the video package and Nancy Boy by Placebo hits over the sound system and the Interim-Impact General Manager, The Icon Sting makes his way towards the ring. No face-paint, no ring gear, just a dangerous look in his eyes.

Mike Tenay:
After he had to watch Hulk Hogan get beaten down by Aces & 8s last week, Sting decided to come out here to offer the group an ultimatum. He hopes that he can attempt to bring this feud to an end.

Taz:
Let's not forget that Sting was beaten down in that brawl last week as well! I'm sure Sting wants a piece of Aces & 8s but, with his no position of power within the company, he's attempting to rationalise with these guys before anyone else gets hurt.

Sting climbs up the ring steps and enters the ring with a microphone in his hand. He takes a moment or two to compose himself before looking around at the TNA fans inside the Impact Zone all chanting his name. He gives the crowd another few seconds to die down before talking.

Sting:
What a week I've had...

He shakes his head dejectedly.

Sting:
It all kicked of last week on Impact when Hulk Hogan thought it would be a good idea to go out to the ring and calls out Aces & 8s to try and put an end to this whole ordeal.

The boos ring throughout the arena at the reminder of what occurred last week involving the Aces & 8s group.

Sting:
Hogan, brother, I know you're watching this right now and I know that you know how much respect I have for you... but you were wrong.

The crowd reaction is mixed for that statement, many Hogan fans boo, some fans cheer, most fans don't know what to do.

Sting:
You were asking to be attacked and injured when you called them out. It's not like we didn't know what they were capable of. Hogan and I are not the first people they've attacked or taken out. This group has been on the rampage for months and we still haven't been able to stop them.

More boos for Aces & 8s.

Sting:
Anyway, we then found out how badly hurt Hulk was and the company was caught in a jam where we didn't have a figure of authority who could impose his physical will on a situation that has already gotten way out of hand. So, I was contacted by Dixie Carter and asked if I would step in as an Interim General Manager until she could find someone who could take on the role in a more permanent basis.

Cheers replaces the boos as Sting announces himself to be the interim-GM once again.

Sting:
So I said yes and then I decided that this issue needed to be dealt with so I came up with a plan of action.

The noise dies down as the fans sit in anticipation of whatever Sting has to say next.

Sting:
Just a forewarning to any Aces & 8s guys in the back who think they're going to come out and attack me or hide in the crowd and surround me, I've got an entire roster waiting in the back hoping and praying they get the chance to come out and kick all your asses.

Big pop!

Sting:
So anyway, onto my little plan. Since Aces & 8s are going to insist on hanging around in TNA, I say we put 'em to work. In five weeks, TNA has a Pay-Per-View named Genesis coming up and I think that's the perfect time to put on a real show of battle between the two of us.

The announcement of a match at Genesis gains a few cheers but, also, a few boos as some fans were clearly anticipating something far sooner.

Sting:
So, at Genesis, regardless of how many of you their actually are, four members of Aces & 8s will compete against four members of a TNA team that will be assembled by none of other than yours truly in an 8-man tag team match. I can name the first member of that TNA team right here, right now... ME!

The arena isn't overly surprised but there is still a polite cheer from the crowd.

Sting:
But that contest is still several weeks away so let's move onto the more pressing matters.

Back to anticipation.

Sting:
Before Genesis, I want a match with the guy who seems to be behind all of this, the "leader" of the group if you will.

This piques the interest from the fans.

Sting:
You may be thinking why I want this match and how I'm going to get the leader of the group. The answer to one of those questions is simple, the other not so much. The reason I want the match is as simple as a man wanting revenge for all of his fallen comrades.

A huge roar of cheers erupts from the crowd as Sting begins to get more than a little riled up.

Sting:
The 'how' is a little bit more complicated. You see, this group doesn't seem to have a direct motive other than to cause trouble in TNA so I'm going to give them the opportunity to win the right to do just that.

Things suddenly become murky as the crowd seem confused by this statement.

Sting:
The stipulations are two-fold. One stipulation will be that, if I win, you unmask. The other being that, If you beat me, you get my job.

Any remaining cheers suddenly vanished as the crowd are now struck by a stunned silence.

Sting:
It's as simple as that. A one on one match between just you and I. I win, you unmask. You win, you're the new TNA General Manager. Just think about it, I look forward to hearing your answer.


~#~#~#~#~ NANCY BOY ~#~#~#~#~


Sting tosses the microphone out of the ring and climbs out of the ring before heading back up the ramp to a mass confusion from all the fans in the Impact Zone.

Mike Tenay:
Did... Did Sting just say what I think he said?

Taz:
If you think Sting just offered the leader of Aces & 8s the opportunity to be General Manager of TNA Impact if he can defeat Sting then yeah, otherwise no.

Mike Tenay:
Why is Sting doing this? This is madness!

Taz:
Sting's no fool, he knows that sort of offer is likely to goad the leader of the group into accepting this match and I know Sting has more than enough confidence in his own ability to get the job done in the ring. It is a big risk though.

Mike Tenay:
And who's to say Aces & 8s won't do what they always do and use the numbers game to steal the victory?

Taz:
I reckon Sting will have a plan in place to deal with that if that particular issue comes to pass.

The cameras now cut to the backstage area where we see a split screen with Angle and Styles on one side and Kazarian and Daniels on the other.

Mike Tenay:
We'll address that issue more next week but coming up after this next commercial break, Kurt Angle and AJ Styles challenge the World Tag Team Champions Of The World for the TNA Tag Team Championships!


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


~#~#~#~#~ MEDAL ~#~#~#~#~


As we return from commercial, "Medal" by Tha Trademarc plays over the speakers and the fans cheer as Kurt Angle makes his way down the entrance ramp.

Christy Hemme:
The following contest, scheduled for one fall, is for the TNA World Tag Team Championships. First, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, weighing in at 240 pounds; KUUURTTT AAAANNGGLLEEEEE!!!

Mike Tenay:
Angle, focused as ever, is set to take part in a huge tag team title match as he and AJ Styles challenge for the gold once again.

Taz:
Angle is always a tough competitor no matter who he's facing and tonight will be no different.

Angle climbs into the ring and begins psyching himself up from the match, slapping himself and bouncing off the ring ropes as his music fades away.


~#~#~#~#~ I AM ~#~#~#~#~


In its place, we hear the familiar sounds of I Am by Dale Oliver hit the sound system and the cheers are even louder as AJ Styles makes his way out towards the ring.

Christy Hemme:
And his partner, from Gainesville, Georgia, weighing in at 215 pounds; the Phenomenal AJ STYYYYYLLEESSSSS!!!

Mike Tenay:
Styles and Angle have formed one heck of a team, even holding the titles for a brief period last year.

Taz:
Yeah but they didn't hold those belts for that long and they have been unsuccessful in subsequent title matches. If they can't get the job done tonight, that could be it for them in regards to getting any more tag team title matches anytime soon.

Styles slides into the ring and works up the crowd with his now patented poses before shaking hands with Angle and turning back to await the arrival of the tag champs.


~#~#~#~#~ DISPOSABLE ~#~#~#~#~


Disposable by Marilyn Manson plays and their opponents, Kazarian and Christopher Daniels, both make their way down to the ring with their tag team belts in tow.

Christy Hemme:
And their opponents, at a combined weight of 440 pounds, they are the current, reigning and defend TNA Tag Team Champions of the world; CCHHRRIIISSSTTOPPPHHERRR DANNNIIEEELLLSSS and KAAAZAAARRRIIIAAANNN!!

Mike Tenay:
Whether you love 'em or you hate 'em, Kazarian and Daniels have managed to hold onto those titles.

Taz:
They're both very smart competitors, they know how to get the job done and they've shown it in recent times as they have toppled all comers. They've even overcome Styles and Angle on multiple occasions.

Mike Tenay:
But let's not forget that Styles and Daniels originally defeated Daniels and Kazarian to win the belts in the first place. These two teams are very evenly matched and this match could easily go either way.

Both teams stand in opposite corners as the referee retrieves the Tag Team Championships from the World Tag Team Champions Of The World and hoists them high into the area moments before this championship match gets underway. The referee hands the belts off to SoCal Val before calling for the bell to signal the start of the match.


***DING! DING! DING!***



TNA Tag Team Championships
World Tag Team Champions Of The World (c) Vs AJ Styles & Kurt Angle



Styles and Kazarian start off the match their respective teams as they slowly begin to circle the ring as the match gets underway. The two men go to lock up in the middle of the ring but Kazarian catches AJ off his guard with a jab that is greeted by jeers from the crowd. Kazarian pulls Styles into the middle of the ring and nails Styles with a stiff uppercut to the jaw before beating him back against the ropes with several hard right hands. He whips Styles off the ropes but Styles counters and catches Kazarian as he comes back off the ropes with a discuss clothesline that almost takes Kazarian right out of his boots. AJ quickly drops to the mat and hooks Kazarian's leg, ONE... TWO... Kazarian kicks out. AJ pulls Kazarian up to his feet and shoves him back into the corner, driving his shoulder right into Kazarian's gut before attempting to whip him into the opposite corner but Kazarian is able to counter and takes Styles down with a hard clothesline. He scurries across the mat and tags in Daniels who jumps into the ring and brings both his arms down onto Styles back with a double axe handle. Styles clutches his back as Daniels catches him with a hard right hand and grabs him by the hair, tossing him face first into the top turnbuckle. Daniels now begins beating Styles down in the corner with hard punches and boots to the fallen Styles. Daniels whips Styles across the ring hard into the corner before following in with a big clothesline that floors Styles. Daniels quickly goes for the cover, ONE... TWO... Styles gets the shoulder up. Daniels pulls Styles up by the hair and goes to drive his head into the top turnbuckle once again but Styles manages to block it and manages to gain the upper hand over his adversary with elbows to the mid-section before following it up with a big Tornado DDT. Styles floats over into a cover, ONE... TWO... Daniels kicks out at two. Styles quickly rolls across the ring to his corner and tags Kurt Angle into the match for the first time.

Angle meets Daniels as he gets to his feet with a hard right hand that sends him straight back down to the canvas before mounting Angle and beating him down with hard right hands. Angle climbs to his feet and pulls Daniels up before driving his forearm right into Daniels' jaw, sending Daniels flying back against the ring ropes. Kurt whips Daniels off the ropes and goes for a clothesline but Daniels ducks underneath it and brings Kurt down to the mat with a backslide, ONE... TWO... Angle manages to wriggle free of the pin attempt before taking Daniels back down with a stiff clothesline. Daniels head bounces hard off the canvas as Kurt reaches down and drags him to his feet before throwing him back into his corner and telling him to tag in Kazarian. Daniels doesn't think twice as he slaps his partners chest and rolls out of the ring and down to the floor to recover. Kazarian looks a little shocked as he looks to the referee, to Angle, down to Daniels and then back to Angle who jumps across to the corner and brings Kazarian into the ring the hard way! Kazarian hits hard as he struggles to his feet and is met by a big right hand from Kurt. Kurt nails a few more as he beats Kazarian back against the ring ropes before whipping Kazarian off the ropes and taking him down with a huge clothesline. Angle is on fire here as he psyches himself up before grabbing Kazarian and tossing him into the corner. He begins laying the boots in to Kazarian, one after the other, hard and fast, before he tags in AJ Styles once again. Styles quickly slips back into the ring and pulls Kazarian up in the corner before firing off on him with a huge chop which draws a big 'woo' from the crowd. Styles sets himself again before delivering another big chop to the chest of Kazarian, lighting him up before delivering a flurry of quick chops that all echo throughout the arena and cause Kazarian to drop to the mat in pain. Styles drags Kazarian into the middle of the ring before innovating a Crucifix pin attempt from nowhere, ONE... TWO... Kazarian just about manages to slip out before the three and the tag team champions are on the ropes here as we head to commercial!


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


As we return from the commercial, we see Kazarian laying the boots in to a downed Kurt Angle as the World Tag Team Champions Of The World seem to have gained the advantage in this match. Kazarian pulls Kurt Angle to his feet and throws him back into the corner before throwing in a load of boots to Angle before tagging in Christopher Daniels. Daniels gets in the ring and begins laying right hands in to Kurt Angle, further beating him down in the corner before driving his boot in to Angle's throat. Daniels tags Kazarian back in as Kazarian quickly climbs into the ring and pulls Kurt Angle to his feet, laying chops in to Angle. Angle attempts to hit back with chops of his own but Kazarian counters back with a boot to the mid-section and he drops Angle down to the mat with a suplex. Kazarian floats over and makes the cover, ONE... TWO... Angle gets the shoulder up. Kazarian quickly drags Angle back to the corner and lays into him with several right hands before tagging Daniels back in as both men whip Angle off the ropes and catch him coming back off the ropes with a double-team reverse elbow. Daniels drops down and makes the cover as Kazarian exits the ring, ONE... TWO... Angle kicks out. Daniels pounds the mat in frustration as he gets to his feet and calls for Angle to get to his feet, jumping up and down in place as Angle gets to his feet before charging at Angle with a running clothesline but Kurt ducks underneath it and drops Daniels with a big belly to back suplex. The fans begin to get riled up as Angle now looks towards AJ who is bouncing up and down in the corner, clearly eager to get the tag. On the other side of the ring, Daniels makes his way across towards his corner and tags in Kazarian before Angle leaps across the ring and...










MAKES THE TAG TO STYLES!

Styles leaps into the ring and takes Kazarian down with a clothesline. He follows it up with a second clothesline before racing across to Christopher Daniels and knocking him off the apron with a forearm smash. Styles turns back to face Kazarian and races across the ring and takes Kazarian down with a Sunset Flip, ONE... TWO... Kazarian rolls out and both men are quickly to their feet. Kazarian is caught with a boot to the gut from Styles who then sets him up for a STYLES CLASH but Kazarian counters it and sets Styles up before dropping him with a FADE TO BLACK! Kazarian drops down and makes the cover, ONE... TWO... Styles kicked out!

Kazarian can't believe it!

Kazarian gets to his feet and pulls Styles up again, setting him up for another FADE TO BLACK, when Angle leaps into the ring and hooks Kazarian up, causing him to release Styles, before Angle slings Kazarian across the ring with a belly to belly overhead suplex. Angle quickly gets to his feet as Kazarian struggles to his feet and jumps in, hooking his arms tight around Kazarian's waist, and delivers a big German Suplex. Kurt's grip is tight as he holds onto the move, delivering a second German suplex, still keeping a tight hold of his grip around Kazarian's waist, and he finally releases Kazarian after a third thunderous German suplex. As Angle gets to his feet, Styles is on the apron and spots an opportunity to land something big on Kazarian as he springboards off the ropes and lands a big 450 splash on the downed Kazarian. AJ hooks the leg, ONE... TWO... Daniels pulls Styles off Kazarian by the boot, breaking up the pin attempt. Angle charges across towards Daniels but he manages to avoid the contact and sends Kurt flying out of the ring and crashing down to the outside. Daniels drags Kazarian across to the corner before tagging himself in and going to work on Styles as he attempts to get to his feet. Daniels drives his forearm down onto Styles back before following in with a knee to the mid-section and hooks up both his arms, calling for an ANGELS WINGS but Styles counters it and... STYLES CLASH! AJ nails the Styles Clash! ONE... TWO... THR-NO!! Kazarian manages to break up the count before the three!

Angle is quickly into the ring now as he catches Kazarian with a few hard right hands before clothesline both Kazarian and himself up and over the top rope to the floor. Styles is now to his feet as Daniels struggles to pull himself up using the ring ropes. AJ goes to grab Daniels but Daniels buys himself some more recovery time with a rake of the eyes to Styles. Down on the outside, Kurt Angle and Kazarian are firing off on each other with hard right hands right in front of the fans in the front row as Angle manages to gain the upper hand before Kazarian rakes Kurt's eyes and drops him to his knees with a low blow. Back in the ring, where the referees attention is solely focused, AJ still has the upper hands over Daniels as he whips him into the corner and climbs onto the middle ropes, laying punches down onto his skull. After the tenth, AJ leaps down and allows Daniels stumble out of the corner before hitting him with an enziguri kick to the back of the head sending Daniels tumbling down to the mat below. Back on the outside, Kazarian has retrieved something from underneath the ring. The camera zooms in enough to make out... handcuffs!

What is he doing with those?

Kazarian grabs both of Kurt's arms and... handcuffs him to the steel guardrail!

As Kurt begins to shake the cobwebs loose and realises what happened, Kazarian begins mocking him. Kurt tries to kick Kazarian but can't reach as Kazarian flies across the floor and boots Kurt right in the face, sending his head crashing right back into the steel guardrail. Back in the ring, Styles nails Daniels with a big forearm, knocking him back against the ropes before whipping him off and taking him down with a big flying forearm smash. Daniels bounces off the mat as Styles quickly sets Daniels up for the Styles Clash but Daniels knows it's coming and counters, hanging Styles up across the middle rope. As Daniels distracts the referee, Kazarian clocks AJ Styles with a back elbow right to the face from the outside. Daniels quickly steps across towards the semi-conscious Styles and pulls him away from the ropes and onto his feet...

ANGELS WINGS!

Daniels delivers the Angels Wings to AJ Styles!

Daniels rolls Styles onto his back and hooks up the far leg!

Kurt Angle can't do a thing!










ONE...

NOT THIS WAY!










TWO...

NO, NOT THIS WAY!!











THREE!!

DAMN IT!!!


***DING! DING! DING!***


Christy Hemme:
Here are your winners and STILL the TNA Tag Team Champions... KAZARIAN and CHRISTOPHER DANIELS!


~#~#~#~#~ DISPOSABLE ~#~#~#~#~


Kurt Angle looks on despondently at ringside as Daniels and Kazarian celebrate their victory.

Mike Tenay:
Through hook or crook, Daniels and Kazarian manage to retain the TNA Tag Team Championships.

Taz:
Daniels hit the Angels Wings on Styles and Kurt Angle could only watch on as the tag champs retained the championships. You may not like the way they do things but they certainly know how to get the job done and that was a very smart move by Kazarian.

Mike Tenay:
Smart or not, it's not right. Kazarian and Daniels stole the damn win!

Daniels and Kazarian back up the ramp with championship gold raised high in celebration as we cut away.

~#~#~#~#~ VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

We cut to visuals of bar fights being played from a projector onto a wall. Punches and kicks are thrown throughout the video as blood drains from faces. The projector clicks as the images disappear and room is engulfed with darkness as the camera shows a man sat in a chair in the shadows.

Man In The Shadows:
That was me when I was younger. Fighting on the streets, fighting in bars, just fighting wherever I could.

The man laughs before continuing.

Man In The Shadows:
I'm no different today. Fighting is my life and it's going to be my life until the day I die.

The man now stands up and tosses the chair aside.

Man In The Shadows:
That's why I'm coming to TNA: to fight.

The man steps forward into the light revealing his face.

Finlay:
My name is Finlay and I love ta' fight.



FINLAY: THE FIGHTING IRISHMAN
Coming soon...

~#~#~#~#~ END VIDEO PACKAGE ~#~#~#~#~

~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


We return from commercial to Taz and Tenay at the broadcast position.

Mike Tenay:
Welcome back to Impact and we are now in the home straight. We've had a great show so far; a new TNA Television Champion was crowned, Rob Van Dam defeated Magnus in a great contest and Kazarian and Daniels managed to escape with the TNA Tag Team Titles still in their possession.

Taz:
And, of course, we have a match set for Genesis as Sting announced that a team of four TNA guys will take on 4 members of the Aces & 8s group.

Mike Tenay:
Perhaps more interestingly, however, Sting also laid out a challenge to the leader of the group; face me one on one. If the leader of the group were to agree to that match, it would be under very specific situations. Should he lose, he would have to unmask however, Sting said that, if he were to be defeated, the leader of Aces & 8s would take Sting's job and become the new Impact General Manager.

Taz:
Whether he accepts that match or not, Genesis is gonna be go a huge distance in terms of attempting to put an end to this thing.

Mike Tenay:
Also, following a confrontation backstage earlier tonight, D'Angelo Dinero and Mr Anderson will go one on one once again.

Taz:
Those two just don't like each other. They're both tremendous competitors and I'm sure Anderson will be that much more determined to avenge his loss from last week.

Mike Tenay:
We also have a few matches that have just been made official as the new TNA Television Champion, Joey Ryan, will team up with the TNA X-Division Champion, Zema Ion and they will be up against two men who could be challenging for those same titles in the near future in John Hennigan and Chris Sabin.

Taz:
That match could certainly be a preview of the near future as both Sabin and Hennigan are sure to be contenders at the very least.

Mike Tenay:
In the last match we have officially announced for next weeks show will see the return to TNA of Ayako Hamada as she goes one on one with Natalie Neidhart.

Taz:
Two tremendously talented Knockouts and two women who both strive to be the best, it's gonna be a great contest between those two.

Mike Tenay:
Before we go to the main event, we have received a video message from Bobby Roode following his confrontation with King Mo last week. Here is that footage.

We now cut away to a video message recorded earlier today in Toronto:


Quote:
Bobby Roode:
Last week on Impact, I was brutally attacked by a man who doesn't even belong in a wrestling ring. I was physically assaulted by a man who is not a wrestler, who is not a TNA superstar and who is not even man enough to do it during a match; King Mo. Mo, you're a sad human being, a pathetic waste of life. Last week, you attacked me when we weren't even competing in the confines of a match. What you did was an unprovoked assault which could see you thrown in jail but, since I'm such a nice guy, I'm not going to contact the authorities, even though I should. Having said that, what you did cannot go by unpunished. I may not at the Impact Zone this week but, rest assured, I will be in attendance next week and King Mo, you will be forced to answer for his sins. Bank on it!
~#~#~#~#~ THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED ~#~#~#~#~


As we cut back to the Impact Zone, The Greatest Man That Ever Lived by begins to blare out across the sound system as heads towards the ring for tonight's main event contest.

Christy Hemme:
The following contest, scheduled for one fall, is a number one contenders match to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. First, making his way to the ring, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, weighing in at 210 pounds; AAUUUSSSTTIIIINNNNN ARRRIIEEEESSSS!!!

Mike Tenay:
Austin Aries believed he was deserving of the first shot at Jeff Hardy's TNA World Heavyweight Championship and was so annoyed by the fact he wasn't first in line that he cost James Storm the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on Impact last week.

Taz:
He has a point, he has a guaranteed rematch clause in his contract.

Mike Tenay:
He did have a rematch clause but he forfeited that guaranteed rematch when he involved himself in that title match and that leads us to right here and right now.

Aries is now in the ring awaiting the arrival of his opponent for tonight's huge main event.


~#~#~#~#~ CRAWL ~#~#~#~#~


Crawl by Kings Of Leon begins to play as James Storm makes his way out to a tremendous ovation.

Christy Hemme:
And his opponent, from Leiper's Fork, Tennessee, weighing in at 230 pounds; he is the "Tennessee Cowboy" JAAAAAMES STOOOOOORM!!!

Mike Tenay:
James Storm looks ready. He looks like he wants to rip a few pieces out of Aries.

Taz:
And why wouldn't he? Aries cost him the biggest prize in this business. If Aries had done that to me, I'd probably feel the same!

James Storm is in the ring on the opposite side of the ring to Aries, staring a hole right through him. The anticipation builds as the referee checks both men are ready for the start of this match before finally getting the main event underway.


***DING! DING! DING***



TNA World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contenders Match
Austin Aries Vs James Storm



The moment the bell rings, James Storm charges across the ring and drops Aries to the mat, quickly mounting him and pummelling him with several hard right hands. The referee admonishes Storm and Storm gets to his feet and begins laying the boots in on Aries instead! The referee gets in Storm's face and tells him to quit it as Aries rolls out of the ring to catch a breather. Storm is quick to follow him to the floor as Aries heads for higher ground, attempting to escape back up the entrance way. Storm chases after Aries and takes him down with a clothesline to the back of Aries head, laying boots in to the down Aries on the ramp. Storm pulls Aries up by the hair and drags him back toward the ring before tossing Aries, head first, into the steel ring post. Aries collapses to the concrete once again as Storm steps across and pulls Aries back up before tossing him back into the ring and he rolls back into the ring just behind Aries. He grabs Austin by the hair and pulls him up to his feet before plastering him with several hard right hands, beating Aries back into the corner. Storm follows up with boots to the gut, beating Aries down in the corner. Storm is on a real roll here as we head to out last commercial of the show.


~#~#~#~#~ COMMERCIAL ~#~#~#~#~


As we return, Storm is still in control of Aries as he slings Aries into the corner before lifting Aries up to the top rope. He fires off on Aries with a few hard right hands before climbing up to the top rope to meet Aries. Both men are in a precarious position as Storm hooks Aries up before taking him straight down to the mat with a huge Superplex. Both Storm and Aries hit the canvas hard as Storm rolls his weight across Aries' chest in a pinfall attempt, ONE... TWO... Aries kicks out. Storm rolls across towards the corner and leans back against the corner, using it for support as he gets to his feet. Aries rolls onto his stomach and pushes himself up as Storm steps across to him and drives his first down into Aries lower back which is still sore from that big Superplex. Storm sets Aries up for a suplex to continue working on the lower back but Aries counters, bringing Storm down to the mat and locking him in the LAST CHANCERY! He has it locked in tight as Storm struggles to reaches for the ropes but is still several feet away from escaping the submission hold. Aries wrenches away at the submission hold but James Storm refuses to give in as he drags both himself and Aries closer and closer to the ring ropes, reaching out and stretching to get his hand on that bottom rope but it's still an inch of two out of reach! Storm makes one last stretch and... GETS THERE!

Aries makes full use of five count, releasing on four, before rolling towards the ropes in an attempt to use them to get to his feet. While the submission hold didn't get James Storm to submit, it bought Aries some vital recovery that he is using to try and get back into this match up that has seen James Storm in control since the bell rung. Aries catches Storm as he gets to his feet with a right hand before throwing him hard into the corner and follows in with a running dropkick. Storm stumbles out of the corner and Aries follows up with an enziguri kick to the back of Storm's head, dropping him to a knee. He follows up by racing across to the other corner and charging across the ring with a big diving dropkick right to Storm's face and he follows it up by going for a cover, ONE... TWO... Storm gets his shoulder up. Aries is quick onto Storm before he can get to his feet, driving his knees into Storm's side. Aries gets to his feet and begins stomping away at the downed James Storm before pulling Storm into the middle of the ring and nailing him with a POWERDRIVE ELBOW that he follows up with a pin attempt, ONE... TWO... Storm kicks out. Aries goes for another pinfall attempt, ONE... TWO... Storm kicks out once again. Aries is clearly trying to wear Storm out with these pin attempts as he goes for a third, hooking the leg this time, ONE... TWO... and for a third time, Storm kicks out. Aries gets to his feet and pulls Storm up, driving his knee right into Storm's skull, staggering him. He nails Storm with a few left jabs before setting himself for a discuss clothesline but Storm ducks under it and catches Aries with a big right hand that staggers him. Storm quickly takes a step backwards and goes for a LAST CALL but Aries avoids the contact and quickly counters back with a Superkick of his own! Aries takes a moment or two to catch his breath before climbing to the top rope and leaping off, landing a big 450 SPLASH! Aries hooks the leg, ONE... TWO... THR-NO!

James Storm kicks out!

Austin Aries is in shock!

The fans love it!

Aries continues slaps his heads onto the mat in anger before looking to the referee and gesturing that it was a three count but the referee responds saying that, in fact, it was just a two count. Aries grits his teeth as he gets to his feet and attempts to pull James up by the hair but Storm counters and drops Aries to the mat with a power-slam, ONE... TWO... Aries kicks out. Aries rolls out of the ring and retrieves a chair as Storm gets to his feet in the ring. Aries slides back into the ring with the chair but Storm catches Aries with a hard right hand before he has an opportunity to react, forcing him to drop the chair. Storm follows it up with another hard right hand, beating Aries back against the ring ropes. He whips Aries off the ropes and drops Aries with a spear before going for the cover, ONE... TWO... Aries gets his shoulder up. Storm gets to his feet and now lines Aries up but Aries ducks underneath the LAST CALL attempt and quickly grabs the chair and goes to swing for Storm but the referee intercepts before he can connect, grabbing the chair off of Aries. The referee turns away from the action for a split second to get rid of the chair and, as he does so, Austin Aries nails Storm with a LOW BLOW! Storm clutches at the injured area as Aries hooks him in a front waist-lock before lifting Storm up into the air and driving him down to the mat with a BRAINBUSTER! The referee turns back around and sees Aries nail his finishing move and drops down to make the count, ONE... TWO... THREE!!


***DING! DING! DING***


Christy Hemme:
Here is your winner and the new number one contender to the TNA World Heavyweight Championship... AUSTIN ARIES!


~#~#~#~#~ THE GREATEST MAN THAT EVER LIVED ~#~#~#~#~


Mike Tenay:
Austin Aries has done it! He will face Jeff Hardy for the World Heavyweight Championship at Genesis!

Taz:
Once again, James Storm comes up short in a big time match, albeit at the hands of some questionable tactics from A-Double.

Aries climbs to the top rope as the fans around the Impact Zone boo and jeer him. He doesn't seem to care as he celebrates his victory with a belated look on his face as he jumps down from the middle rope...










SMACK!

Austin Aries just turn right into a LAST CALL from James Storm!

Storm looks down at Aries, disappointment etched into his eyes at his failure to get the job done for the second week in a row! As Aries is now out cold on the mat, Storm takes a moment to look around at the Impact Zone, which is going crazy chanting for him. His face lacks any emotional reaction to these cheers but that doesn't effect the audience's reaction towards him.

As Storm turns away from the crowd, he heads towards the ropes to exit the ring when...


~#~#~#~#~ ANOTHER ME ~#~#~#~#~


Another Me by Dale Oliver & Jeff Hardy hits and the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy.makes his way out onto the top of the stage. James Storm stands on the ring apron and stares straight at the current TNA World Heavyweight Champion, knowing he just blew his only chance to challenge for that man's championship. The frustration is evident in Storm's face as Austin Aries begins to sit up in the middle of the ring, still dazed by that superkick.

With Austin Aries now set to face Jeff Hardy for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, where exactly does this leave James Storm?
