Spoilers: Impact taping results for 10/17
It was kind of confusing when the second show started, but the crowd was very hot for the first show.
1. Robbie E defeated Hernandez, Eric Young, and Christopher Daniels in a four corners match.
Dixie Carter came out again. The crowd was still hot and I haven’t been able to hear a thing that Dixie has said all night, but I assume she’s talking about the contract signing. There were lots of booing and the crowd is pretty good. Bully Ray came out and had a hoarse voice. Magnus interrupted and there was some verbal sparring between the two until Magnus socked Ray, which set up a match between the two.
2. Samoa Joe defeated Chris Sabin. Joe choked out Sabin for the submission win. Afterward, Austin Aries attacked Joe. Jeff Hardy came out, as did Manik. It was a nice little buildup for Ultimate X.
AJ Styles came out for promo. The crowd still pretty crazy for him. Aces & 8’s came out without Bully Ray and there was an instant brawl. James Storm and Gunner came out to help. There was a stare down, then a one on one with Knux vs Gunner.
3. Gunner defeated Knux. What was cool during this match (and I don’t know if it will be on TV) was that you could see storm drinking this random crowd dude’s beer. After a lot of looking to the back by Knux and Bischoff. Gunner picked up the victory.
Kurt Angle came out in a Main Event Mafia suit. The crowd was still jacked. He spoke about how Bobby Roode reminds him of himself in five years. Roode came out for some verbal back and fourth. There was a lot of talk about Roode being like him and not being like him. Roode attacked Angle and got beat up. Bad influence came out to help beat up Angle, who didn’t get any help from the Mafia.
4. TNA Champion Bully Ray defeated Magnus. An OK match. The crowd kinda died a bit. Bully Ray pulled out a chain. Sting came out to help Magnus, but he ended up serving as a distraction when Bully Ray low-blowed Magnus and getting the win. Sting and Magnus spoke after the match for a bit. Magnus left upset, but there was no fighting between the two.
Dixie Carter came out for the contract signing for the TNA Title match at Bound For Glory. Bully Ray and A.J. Styles made their entrances. The crowd was still very loud for Styles. Bully said Styles can’t beat him. He told a wrestling story about Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes. He said he put the wrestling world on hard times. Bully bragged bout beating Sting at slammiversary, running Chris Sabin back to X Division, and then said he made Hulk Hogan leave the company.
Bully said he is going to send Styles back to Georgia with nothing. He bused out some family comments. Styles said it’s not to compare Flair and Bully. He called Bully a bitch. Styles said the same stuff about how he has everything to lose and gain. A.J. said he will beat Bully, then signed the contract. There was a quick rumble between the two. Styles throws the briefcase of money at Dixie and they had a verbal exchange without microphones. This concluded the Impact taping.
