TNA taped more Impact Wrestling tonight 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 22, 2011 on Spike TV):
* In the wild card tournament, AJ Styles & Kazarian defeated Rob Van Dam & Christopher Daniels when RVD kicked Daniels in the head and Kazarian hit Daniels with the Fade To Black for the win.
* In the second match of their best of 3 series, Anthony Nese defeated Zema Ion. Ion hit his finisher and had the win but got cocky, went to hit it again, and Nese rolled him up for the victory.
* James Storm comes out for a promo. He says Kurt Angle has been looking for him everywhere. Angle says he can find him in two places, with these rowdy fans or at a local bar. He compares his match with Angle to a football game. A video of Kurt Angle in Leathersport, Tennessee comes on. Angle is in a cowboy attire, with a belt of bullets and all – he’s still looking for a rematch against Storm at Genesis. He spits beer in a waitress’s face and told Storm he would be here and sorry about their damn luck.
* TNA Champion Bobby Roode comes to the ring with Bully Ray, Roode in a suit and Bully Ray wearing a Santa hat. Roode says he loves this time of year and says Merry Christmas to everyone. He hopes that everyone loves the Christmas gift that he and Ray gave everyone to Impact last week. Roode says that the one thing that Sting has gotten wrong is that this actions would go without consequence and calls out Sting to the ring to have him tell Roode that he is suspended. Hardy’s music hits and he comes to the ring. He stops at the ring as Roode and Ray prep to fight him. Hardy says it isn’t about Roode and Sting, it’s about Roode and Jeff Hardy. Roode won’t be suspected because in three weeks, he is taking Roode’s title. Hardy says that tonight Roode and Ray are facing Hardy in a tag match tonight with a partner of his choosing. Ray says Hardy does not have fiends like him. Sting’s music hits and he comes out in his facepaint and tshirt gear. Sting says two things: Hardy is loved all over the world and secondly, he would be honored to be Hardy’s partner tonight.
* They show Kurt Angle beating up more people in a bar. He booted four people and dropped a fake Christmas tree on them.
* In a the main event street fight, Jeff Hardy & Sting defeated Bobby Roode & Bully Ray after Sting hit a Scorpion Death Drop on Roode and put Roode on a table for Hardy to hit a top rope splash for the victory.
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 in Immortal. 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.
Samoa Joe defeated Christopher Daniels via Muscle Buster.
