TNA Wrestling taped several segments and matches for upcoming episodes of Impact on Friday night from Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida. Wrestling News World Florida correspondent Scott Brooks was in attendance and filed the following report:
* There was a dinner table set up in the ring. Dixie Carter came out then introduced Rockstar Spud, who I presume is her assistant now. Crowd was heavily booing so couldn't quite make it out. They announced Magnus/Angle would be a Last Man Standing match and Hardy/Roode would be a tables match. She also said tonight there will be a winner winner Turkey Dinner where the winners tonight will be a part of the feast. Dixie also had EC3 come out and the two spoke, talked about there being nothing better than being a Carter and EC3 was ready to wrestle his next tough opponent.
* Ethan Carter III defeated Curry Man. Curry Man spoke briefly before the match but EC3 cut him off. He won with his headlock driver.
* We saw a backstage segment of Bromans & Zema Ion talking. Eric Young and ODB walk up. He said he is running the turkey bowl now and said they will do a tag match with two turkey suits. EY said they were wrestling this guy but it was some random backstage guy who declined. He then pointed at Dewey Barnes and Norv Fernum. Losers wear the turkey suit.
* Eric Young and ODB came out with the turkey suits. Zema Ion came out and he had DJ equipment. He introduces Bromans with his DJ equipment.
* Bromans beat Dewey Barnes and Norv Fernum pretty easily following a Hart Attack on Norv. They made them wear the turkey suits and made them do the turkey dance. Eric Young and ODB did with them.
* We had the "winner winner turkey dinner" and all of the winners came out including Bobby Roode, Bad Influence, Chris Sabin, Velvet Sky, Gail Kim, Lei'd Tapa Bromans and Zema Ion. (Not sure why EC3 wasn't out if he had won a match.) Spud welcomed them all. Roode said this is a table for winners only to Sabin. He said Roode was right and told Velvet she had to leave. He asked Zema to take a seat. Roode said to feast your red on true winners. They would like to thank Dixie for their careers in Impact Wrestling. Roode asks what they are thankful for. Daniels says he is for his intelligence being handsome and being well endowed. Kazarian is thankful that Joe Park is not ere to drink the gravy or fornicate the pumpkin pie and says he is glad to be here with Daniels and Roode. Gail says she is thankful for Lei'd Tapa and being the most dominant Knockout. Sabin says he is thankful for the beautiful luxurious...hair on his head and being the greatest x division champion of all time. Robbie E says he and Bromans are thankful for Phil Heath and the new resident DJ for TNA and new member of the Bromans Zema Ion. He says they are thankful for not wearing the turkey suits and being the best tag team champions of all time. Roode says he is thankful for being the it factor and the upcoming world heavyweight champion and beating Kurt Angle. He says let's feast. Kurt Angle's music hits. Roode challenges him to get in the ring and take them all on. He said Roode isn't alone and neither is he. ODB, EY, Storm, Gunner, Velvet come out and a big food fight erupts.
December 5, 2013 Episode::
* Kurt Angle/Magnus promo. They spoke about why it is important for each of them to win. Roode interrupted them and made his case as did Hardy shortly after. This segwayed into the first of the two semifinal matches.
* In a Semifinal Tables Match, Jeff Hardy defeated Bobby Roode in a tables match. Both guys went through a table at one point and the match was restarted. Roode was on the apron and Hardy kicked him off trough the table on the floor to win the match.
* In a Gail Kim open challenge, she defeated Cherry Bomb. She and Tapa went to attack her after until ODB made the save and the two of them bailed.
* In a Semifinal Last Man Standing Match, Magnus beat Kurt Angle. Ref bump led to Roode coming out and laying out Angle. Magnus made it to his feet to win the match. Roode put the boots to Angle until Hardy made the save. He and Magnus had a stare down after.
December 12, 2013 Episode:
* A graphic is up for Final Resolution on December 19th. There was a table set up in the ring with a wheel and four briefcases. They are about to spin the wheel to find out what the stipulation would be for the finals. Angle interrupted and called out Roode for a fight. Roode said he is the one who should be phased off. He said he can beat him any day of the week. He has nothing left to prove. Angle says right now and the two got into a brawl at ringside until refs broke it up. Roode broke through and kicked Angle low. He said that if Angle thinks he can beat him twice in one night then at Final Resolution it will be Angle vs Roode 2/3 Falls.
* Dixie came out and spoke. Said AJ Styles is a major headache to her. There were heavy boos again so couldn't quite make out what she said. She said next week she will get a new world heavyweight champion. Magnus comes out followed by Jeff Hardy. She wanted to see if they had any final words for each other. Hardy said he won the BFG Series last year and the world title. Called 2012 his year. In one week we the creatures will take the heavyweight championship again. Magnus said he might be young but he is not stupid. He says these are his people. He is the top guy. Next week he is nothing besides the final obstacle. If he is going to be the #1 guy he has to beat the #1 guy. He intends to do that. They shake hands. Dixie says there is a special match. "Dixieland". Whichever one wins they will travel the world with her in her private jet and whatnot. She said another couple things and the segment was done.
* Chavo Guerrero & Hernandez defeated Bad Influence with a doomsday crossbody on Daniels.
* Chris Sabin w/Velvet Sky defeated Eric Young.
