TNA Impact Taping
Tazz came out in more relaxed type clothes. I wonder if he will be apart of a story line tonight.
Open Immortal comes out without Hulk Hogan. Eric Bischoff called out Scott Steiner so they can take care of some things. Eric said due to Dixe Carter paying off a judge, Hulk won’t be here tonight. Eric said no one is coming. He said Kevin Nash, Sting, and Booker T aren’t coming.
Eric kept pushing for Scott to join him or get your ass kicked. Scott was big with the fans and on the mic very strong. Kurt came out with Crimson. They push that they are real, damn real, and Kurt’s music hit as Scott, Kurt, and Crimson walked backstage.
1. Ink Inc. defeated Gunner and Murphy. Ink Inc. won the match by pinfall.
There was a backstage video of Kurt, Scott, and Crimson. Kurt’s cell rang and he said they are still coming.
2. Jeremy Buck defeated Douglas Williams and Jay Lethal in an X Division contenders match. Max Buck joined the announcers on commentary. Jeremy cheated when the ref was looking away by kicking Williams low and then pinning him. Jeremy and Max are two of the three entrants in the three-way match at the pay-per-view that will determine the No. 1 contender to the X Division Title.
Mr. Anderson came out and asked Jeff to join him in the ring. Jeff came out and Anderson asked if there are as many assholes as creatures in the Impact Zone. Anderson talked about how Jeff and him and are similar. Anderson made fun of Triple H. He then asked Hardy if the can have a match between the two of them with no one interfering. Jeff showed a babyface mix here, and they are doing this match for the fans.
3. Mickie James defeated Sarita. James won the match and was then attacked by Madison Rayne from behind.
4. Bully Ray and D’Angelo Dinero fought Brother Devon and Samoa Joe to an apparent no-contest. Joe and Pope brawled backstage. Devon fought Bully Ray all over the building until referees and staff members broke it up.
5. Mr. Anderson defeated Jeff Hardy to retain the TNA Title. Jeff attacked Anderson during the introductions. After ten minutes of fighting outside the ring, the match started. The ref was knocked out during the match. Immortal came out and then Fortune (A.J. Styles, Kazarian, and Beer Money) turned on Hardy and Immortal. Anderson ended up getting the win.
A.J. Styles claimed he is “They.” Eric Bischoff came out. Angle and Steiner joined Styles in the ring. Bischoff said that Hulk Hogan will take control of the company by March 3. There was no sign of Ric Flair. There was a lot of yelling back and forth and then A.J.’s music played.
