TNA taped tonight’s Impact Wrestling from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Many things were taped out of order but Wrestling News World Orlando correspondent Scott Brooks did his best to put everything in its proper order. Below are full taping results:
Impact Wrestling (Airing December 29, 2011 on Spike TV):
* TNA Knockout Women’s Champion Gail Kim and Madison Rayne come to the ring and call out Tara & Miss Tessmacher. Madison says after last week if they screwed with Madison, they would both be fired. Madison says they are both fired. Sting comes out. Madison says there’s no need for him to come out. He says Karen was VP of the knockouts, not here. Madison has no power. Sting tells Gail that she will be defending the world title against this woman tonight. Mickie James comes to the stage.
* Gunner w/Ric Flair vs. Douglas Williams went to a no contest after Gunner shoved down the ref. They then lifted up the padding and Gunner DDTed Douglas on the concrete. Douglas was stretchered out.
* In a wild card tournament match, Magnus & Samoa Joe defeated ODB & Eric Young when Joe hit the muscle buster on Eric Young.
* Rob Van Dam defeated Kurt Angle by disqualification when James Storm slid in the ring and gave Angle the Last Call.
* AJ Styles & Kazarian defeated Abyss & Scott Steiner when Abyss turned on Steiner and hit the Black Hole Slam. After, Bully Ray came out and spoke with Abyss. Ray was asking what Abyss wants. Abyss said he wants Bully Ray. At Genesis, Abyss wants Bully Ray in a match. Abyss said if he loses, he will join back up inImmortal. He tells Ray that there is one condition, the match will be Monster’s Ball.
* In the main event, Gail Kim defeated Mickie James to retain the Knockout’s Championship. Lengthy match. Mickie had the match won, but Gail went to the outside. The referee went to check on her and a masked woman (believed to eventually be Melina) came in the ring and hit Madison Rayne’s finisher on Mickie. Gail came back in the ring and made the cover.
* I missed it but they did a promo with TNA Champion Bobby Roode beating up an old friend of his and Jeff Hardy ended up coming out for the save.
* In the third match of the best 3 series Zema Ion beat Anthony Nese in a contract on a pole match to earn an X Division title shot at Genesis.
Samoa Joe defeated Christopher Daniels via Muscle Buster.
