TNA Wrestling is currently taping Impact on their 2015 tour of the United Kingdom.
I’ve been on vacation/holiday for the latter part of the week, so I’ll catch everyone up on what was taped, where it was taped and the date it’s expected to air.
Please note, TNA is notorious for taping out of order so the order in which the material will air is subject to change.
Taped January 29 in Glasgow, Scotland for February 13th:
Kurt Angle aligned with Gunner & Austin Aries to take out The BDC. Bobby Lashley came out and shook hands with Angle but Angle requested a title shot. The BDC interrupted.
1) Bobby Roode b. Austin Aries. After the match, Roode went to cut a promo but Eric Young neutralized.
Al Snow called out Grado to a match at the next taping.
2) Bram b. Crazzy Steve and called out Magnus
3) Ethan Carter III & Tyrus b. Mark Andrews, Rockstar Spud & Jeremy Borash in a 2-on-3 match. We’re told Borash actually bumped here, EC3 pinned Spud to get the win. Mr. Anderson returned after the match and took out EC3 and Tyrus.
4) Awesome Kong b. Madison Rayne
Matt Hardy cut a promo on The Revolution, saying they did something The Undertaker couldn’t even do and that’s put Jeff Hardy out of action. Hardy fought with James Storm but is overtaken until The Wolves made the save.
