Re: EWR/TEW Discussion Thread
I've just started playing again for the first time in nearly a year. I chose a TNA game, and it started on April 1st, so I did almost the exact same build up to Lockdown, but with two changes. First: The Lethal Lockdown match had some new stipulations, that were that the Bischoff on the winning team could make one decision regarding the other, without limitations, on the next Impact. And second: I had Hogan strip ODB and Young of the Knockout Tag titles because he wants changes and EY can't hold a female title, and then instead of the ODB/Young vs. Rosita/Sarita match, and had an Open Knockout's Tag Team Gauntlet, which saw the newly signed Blossom Twins defeat Sarita and Sarita, T.N.T., Winter and Angelina Love, and Mickie James and ODB, as the twins entered last and defeated Rosita and Sarita.TNA Sacrifice 2012

World Heavyweight Championship
Bobby Roode vs. Rob Van Dam
On May 19th, both Mr. Anderson and Jeff Hardy stepped up to the World Heavyweight Champion, just four days after Roode's vicious encounter in the Steel Cage with James Storm at Lockdown. The General Manager of Impact Wrestling, Hulk Hogan, booked a #1 Contender match between Hardy and Anderson, and later that night he added Rob Van Dam to make it a Triple Threat. Van Dam got the win as he pinned Hardy, and thereby took the first step towards regaining the title he never lost. Next week Roode gives Van Dam a name dropping of all the men who has already failed to take the title from him, but Van Dam tells Roode that it doesn't matter how many he has beaten because all Van Dam needs to know is that he'll beat Roode at Sacrifice. Hogan then came out and informed Roode and Van Dam that tonight they would each pick the other's poison. Roode's pick to face Van Dam was Kazarian, who Van Dam beat. Throught the night Van Dam had a bunch of superstars come up to him to let him know that they would have no problem with facing Roode, many of which had issues with Roode, but Van Dam ended up picking James Storm. In the end of the match Roode tried to take a count out loss, but Van Dam rushed in and threw Roode back into the ring and right into the Last Call Superkick to finally give Storm the satisfaction of beating Roode. On May 3rd, Roode and Van Dam takes part in a 6-man Tag Team match, as Roode teams up with the World Tag Team Champions Samoa Joe and Magnus, to take on Rob Van Dam and Motor City Machine Guns. Roode did what he could to minimize the time he spent in the ring, and eventually did break up the cover as Van Dam pinned Magnus. Three days before Sacrifice, the contract signing took place. At first Roode rejected to sign the contract before his personaly lawyers had taken a look at it, but when Hogan threatened to make the World title match for tonight if Roode didn't sign it, Roode ended up signing it unwillingly. Roode went to leave, but as Hogan shook the hand of Van Dam, Roode cowardly attacked Van Dam from behind with the title before rushing out of the ring and backwards up the ramp.
World Tag Team Championships
Samoa Joe and Magnus vs. Motor City Machine Guns
Four days after losing to Joe and Magnus at Lockdown, the Guns came to the ring and called out the champions. As Joe and Magnus arrived, the Guns congratulated them on their win at Lockdown, and said that they respect them. The Guns said that they know how it works, and therefor they weren't gonna ask for a rematch. They were gonna earn it. They told Joe and Magnus that they'd talked to Hogan earlier, and he booked a #1 Contender match for tonight between the Guns and Mexican America. The Guns then told Joe and Magnus that WHEN they win, they would come after they titles. Later on, the Guns defeated Mexican America. Next week Joe and Magnus came to the ring and talked about Lockdown and last week, and Magnus said that he respect the Guns for actually earning a rematch, but at Sacrifice nothing would change. The Guns then came out, and Sabin then talked about how Shelley and Magnus had a one-on-one match before Lockdown, and then challenged Samoa Joe to a one-on-one match tonight. Joe accepted. Later on, Sabin ended up beating Joe after a distraction from Shelley, just like Magnus beat Shelley before Lockdown after a distraction from Joe. On May 3rd, Joe took control in a backstage interview and said that Magnus may had talked about respect for the Guns for earning a rematch, but he had no respect for them because of what they pulled off last week. Later on, Magnus and Joe tagged with Bobby Roode in a 6-man Tag Team match against the Guns and Rob Van Dam, where Van Dam pinned Magnus. Three days before Sacrifice the Guns was interviewed backstage and talked about how Joe might not respect them for what they pulled off two weeks ago, even though they did exactly what Morgan and himself did before Lockdown. The Guns the suggested that Joe and Magnus paid attention next, and then they went to the ring and got some ladders up in the ring, climbed them and then suggested to Joe and Magnus that they made the match at Sacrifice a Ladder match. Joe and Magnus came out, and eventually climbed the ladders and accepted face to face.
Crimson vs. Jeff Hardy
On April 19th Matt Morgan came pimping to the ring and talked about how Crimson took the easy way out as the coward he is at Lockdown. Crimson came to the ring, and after explaining that it only matters that you win the match and not how, he sarcastically asked Morgan how his leg was, and then out of nowhere savagely attacked Morgan. Crimson beat Morgan up bad, and eventually placed his head up the steel ringpost and bashed his head with a steel chair. Crimson then left, while medics attented to Morgan, who was later revealed to be out for weeks. Next week Crimson got interviewed backstage and said that Morgan was out for blood at Lockdown but got beaten, and he should've just accepted that loss. But he didn't, and look where that got him. Crimson then said, as he has said before, that there's two lists. First list, a list of people Crimson has beaten since arriving 15 months ago. Second list, a list of people who has beaten him. One of them is empty, and the other now has Morgan on it. He then said: "Next on the list... Well, you'll see". On the same night Hardy was scheduled to cut a promo in the ring, but during his entrance Crimson savagely attacked Hardy and ended up leaving him at the bottom of the ramp. On May 3rd, Crimson told in an interview that he is undefeated for 15 months now, but still haven't been near the World title picture, while other guys takes the spotlight where Crimson himself should be in, solely because of who they are and what they've accomplished in their past, and not because of what they're accomplishing now. Later on, Hardy went to the ring and talked directly towards Crimson, stating that if Crimson had a problem with guys who has worked their ass off during their entire career to get to where they are, then he suggests Crimson comes out and does something about it face to face, instead of attacking people from behind. Crimson came out and looked ready, but then stopped at the bottom of the ramp and then waved Hardy off with a cocky smile before walking back up the ramp. Three days before Sacrifice, Hardy defeated Gunner. Hardy celebrated on the turnbuckle after the win, but as he jumped down he turned around right into the Red Sky from Crimson.
Garrett Bischoff and Hulk Hogan vs. Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair
On April 19th, Eric and Flair came to the ring and talked about how Hogan had his part in what happened at Lockdown, as he kept stocking the decks against Eric. Garrett came out and told his dad to stop making excuses and face the fact that him and his team lost. Garrett then reminded them that he won the right to make a decision regarding Eric, and said that he couldn't help overhearing Flair expressing his problems with Hogan at Lockdown, and hearing Eric blaming Hogan just now. Which gave Garrett an idea, and he said used his one decision to book an Ultimate Sacrifice Tag Team match for Sacrifice. Eric and Flair vs. Garrett and Hogan. Later on, Flair barged into Hogan's office to address the Ultimate Sacrifice situation, but Hogan said that Garrett won the right to make a decision, and that Hogan had already given the green light for the match. Flair threw a fit and things almost got out of hand, but security broke it up and escorted Flair out of the office on Hogan's demand. Next week Eric and Flair came to the ring again, this time talking about how Flair is retired and how Eric isn't a wrestler. Hogan and Garrett came out, and Hogan said that the match was booked and there was nothing they could do about it. Hogan then said that since it's an Ultimate Sacrifice match, both teams should come up with a sacrifice. Flair then yelled that the only way he was gonna go through with the match. was if WHEN Flair and Eric wins, Hulk Hogan is gone. Hogan said that if Flair and Eric could come up with some equal sacrifices by next week, it was a done deal. On May 3rd, Flair and Eric came to the ring and said that they'd thought long and hard about it, and their sacrifices were to be that if Hogan and Garrett wins, Immortal would split up and never reform again, and Flair and Bischoff would never be a part of the same establishment again. Hogan and Garrett came out, and Hogan accepted the sacrifices. He then said that if Flair and Eric won, Hulk Hogan would be gone. Garrett took the mic and added that his sacrifice were to never use the Bischoff name again if they lost. Bischoff and Flair agreed with smiles on their faces. Three days before Sacrifice, the contract signing took place. Later on, Garrett faced Eric's and Flair's handpicked opponent Bully Ray, and lost.
Women's Knockout Championship
Gail Kim vs. Velvet Sky
On April 19th, Velvet came to the ring and said that she was sick and tired of getting screwed. Gail and Madison came to the ring and Gail called Velvet a sore loser before they both laughed at her. Hogan appeared on the titantron and said that although the referee's decision was final, he could see things from Velvet's perspective too. He then granted Velvet a final shot at Gail and the Knockout title at Sacrifice, and said that if she were to lose, she wouldn't get another opportunity. Next week, Velvet faced and defeated Madison Rayne, while Gail faced and defeated Mickie James. On May 3rd, Velvet teamed with Mickie to face Gail and Madison. Gail ended up faking and injury and left Madison alone in the ring where Velvet and Mickie made quick work of her. Hogan saw right through Gail's acting, and came out and informed Gail that if she couldn't deliver legal papers from the doctor next week stating that she can't compete, she would face both Velvet and Mickie in a handicap match. Three days before Sacrifice, Gail failed to deliver the papers and the handicap match was on. Gail was apologizing to Madison backstage during the show and explained that she really was hurt. At the end of the handicap match with Gail in trouble, Madison came out to seemingly help Gail, but faked an injury while running to the ring like Gail faked an injury last week. Gail ended up getting pinned by Velvet.
Austin Aries vs. Joey Matthews
On April 19th, Hogan caught up with Aries backstage and thanked him for joining Team Garrett at Lockdown and shook his hand. Right after that, Aries defeated Zema Ion. After the match Aries was suddenly attacked by newly hired Joey Matthews. When JB tried to get a comment from Matthews backstage after the attack, Matthews just walked right past him and told him to beat it. Next week, Aries came to the ring and called out Matthews, but not for an explanation but to kick his ass. Instead of Matthews, Kid Kash came out. Kash and Aries faced off in a match, and Kash ended up beating Aries because of a distraction from Matthews. On May 3rd, JB again tried to get a comment from Matthews regarding the past two weeks. Matthews said: "It can all be summed up in very few words JB", and then just laughed and walked away. Later on, Aries went to the ring and said that it was fine with him if Matthews didn't want to explain to JB, the fans or anyone else, because Aries didn't want an explanation. He wanted to beat his ass. This time Matthews came out on the ramp and said that if Aries wanted to beat him up, he should come to Sacrifice, and bring his title with him. Aries held up the X-Division title and said: "Oh, is this what you want?". Matthews raised the mic, again just laughed and walked away. Three days before Sacrifice, Aries got in the ring and said that the only way that Matthews would get an X-Division title match, was if Matthews came out to the ring, looked Aries straight in his eyes, and told him face to face. Matthews came to the ring with no hesitations, got right in the face of Aries and said into the mic that Aries was holding: "You and me, X-Division title, Sacrifice" and then slapped Aries straight in face before leaving. While leaving he didn't look back at a screaming and enraged Aries until he reached the top of the ramp. Then he just looked back over his shoulder, laughed and walked away.

The Blossom Twins vs. Sarita and Rosita
On April 19th, the new Knockout Tag Team Champions, The Blossom Twins, made their debut appearance on Impact Wrestling, as they came to the ring and talked about how Lockdown was the biggest night of their careers, because not only did they debut, but they became the new Knockout Tag Team Champions. Sarita and Rosita interrupted the twins and asked them who they are. They said that the twins only won because they came out last, when Sarita and Rosita had already wrestled and defeated T.N.T. Sarita and Rosita told the twins that they didn't stand a chance of keeping the titles, and then got in their faces and shoved them. Hannah and Holly looked at each other, and then both delivered Dropkicks to Sarita and Rosita, sending them through the ropes and out of the ring. Sarita and Rosita looked surprised.

Next week, Anderson went to the ring and said that he heard earlier that Van Dam could pick Roode's opponent for tonight, and he would love to be that opponent, because he had a score to settle with Roode. But the suddenly out came Bully Ray. Bully told Anderson that he, like anyone else, didn't care what Anderson wanted. He said he was sick and tired of hearing about Roode, hearing about Storm, hearing about Hardy, hearing about Van Dam, and hearing about Anderson. He got in the face of Anderson and sais that he himself would be the next World Champion. Anderson said off mic: "Rally?", and Bully answered: "Really!". Anderson then connected with some punches to Bully and then Clotheslined him over the top rope and out of the ring.
