TNA taped this week’s edition of Impact Wrestling last night from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Wrestling News World Orlando correspondent Scott Brooks wrote the following report:
Impact Wrestling (Airing Thursday on Spike TV):
* In the backstage area, TNA Champion Bobby Roode was speaking about Sting’s attack from last week’s Impact. TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries walked up and made a comment about his Tweets on Sting. They both exchange insults on Sting and leave to talk about something in private.
* Kurt Angle came out and read off cue cards a list of reasons over why he does not like Jeff Hardy. These included things such as how Jeff Hardy dresses to how Kurt’s son holds Jeff in higher regard than his own father. He called Hardy out to the ring and they made a match between the two for Victory Road. Hardy slapped Angle and security had to separate the two.
* In a Gauntlet Match, Kazarian defeated AJ Styles that also involved Christopher Daniels. Before the match, AJ said that if he wins the gauntlet match he wants to have whatever Christopher Daniels has on Kazarian to be revealed. During the portion between AJ/Daniels, Kazarian interfered and hit Fade To Black on AJ, causing AJ to win over Daniels via DQ. However, Kazarian immediately pinned AJ after, giving Kazarian the win.
* Bully Ray is seen backstage talking about Brandon Jacobs. Austin Aries and Bobby Roode walk up and talk to him about how Sting is the root of his problems.
* ODB w/Eric Young defeated Madison Rayne w/Gail Kim via TKO. While the referee was distracted by Eric Young, Madison attempted to get Gail to get involved by using one of her titles on ODB, but Gail dropped the title, causing ODB to get Madison offguard and hit her with the TKO.
* Austin Aries, Bobby Roode, and Bully Ray come to the ring. The three of them all put out various complaints about Sting, before saying that “they’re done”, much like how Sting said on Twitter. The three of them laid out in the middle of the ring, saying that they will be there all night if they have to. The lights go out and when they come back on, Sting is in the ring. Sting wonders if they are playing mind games like how he was because if they are not, then Sting will be forced to strip Bobby Roode & Austin Aries of their titles and Bully Ray will have no paycheck. The three of them change their mind and Sting books them in the main event tonight against Samoa Joe, Magnus, & James Storm.
* Zema Ion defeated Shannon Moore via Hostile Makeover
* Velvet Sky & Mickie James defeated Angelina Love & Sarita when Velvet pinned Angelina with the In Yo’ Face.
* In the main event, James Storm, Samoa Joe & Magnus defeated TNA Champion Bobby Roode, TNA X Division Champion Austin Aries & Bully Ray after Storm pinned Roode via the Last Call. After the match, Ray attacked Magnus with a chair. He threw the chair at Storm, Storm caught it, but Ray booted the chair into Storm’s face. Ray stood tall as the show ended.
* In a TV Title Match, Matt Morgan defeats Robbie E via DQ following interference from Robbie T. Eric Bischoff was on commentary for the match.
