On a special Thanksgiving episode of Impact Wrestling it’s Team Angle Vs. Team Roode in a special 4-on-4 elimination match. Also on the show Mr. Anderson holds a public funeral for The Aces & Eights, Ethan Carter III faces his latest TNA legend, and the turkey suit will rear its ugly head once more.

TONIGHT ON IMPACT: Mr. Anderson holds a funeral for the Aces & Eights, Kurt Angle and Bobby Roode captain teams for an 8-man elimination match.

We cut to a funeral home and pan different paraphernalia as Mr. Anderson announces via voiceover that tonight he’ll give The Aces & Eights a proper burial.

We go “live” to the Impact Zone and after Mike Tenay quickly welcomes the home audience out comes Dixie Carter to open the show proper. Carter says she has been so crazy busy that she has decided to hire a Chief of Staff: Rockstar Spud. Spud makes his way out in a suit and is all smiles. Spud thanks Carter for this tremendous opportunity and says she guided him all the way through the British Boot Camp series which he won. Spud says Carter is the greatest boss in the entire world and warns the Impact roster that he’s watching them. Spud says his eyes and ears might as well be Dixie’s and tells them to watch out. Spud says that now he’s in the United States Carter is his queen.

Carter changes gears to the World Title tournament and announces the two semifinal match stipulations: Hardy/Roode in a Tables match and Angle/Magnus in a Last Man Standing match. Carter then says everyone who wins tonight will get treated to a feast and whoever loses will get nothing. Carter then switches gears once again and introduces Ethan Carter III to the ring. EC3 kisses Carter’s cheek and grabs a mic. He says Aunt D gave him the opportunity to fly his own opponent in and he’s his biggest challenge to date. EC3 tells everyone to remember that he’s unbeatable and he and Dixie do the “We’re the Carters” bit. EC3 is in action next.

Ethan Carter III is in the ring awaiting his flown in opponent…who is Curry Man! YESSSSS! After doing a little dance, he grabs a mic and says a bunch of stuff in Japanese before being attacked from behind.

Match #1: Curry Man Vs. Ethan Carter III

Carter slams Curry Man to the mat and follows up with a snapmare. Carter rams Curry Man’s head into the mat three times, while yelling “I AM RICH!”. Curry Man fights back with some jabs and chops but runs into a back bodydrop. Carter hits a series of right hands to the side of Curry Man’s skull then applies a camel clutch. A “YOU CAN’T WRESTLE!” chant breaks out from the crowd. Carter hits Curry Man with a corner clothesline followed by a back suplex. Carter whips Curry Man into the ropes and Curry Man catches him with a kick followed by a forearm and a dropkick. Carter reverses a corner Irish whip but misses a splash. Curry Man boxes the ears, gets the crowd clapping, struts out of the corner, and hits a flying butt splash into the midsection. Curry Man heads to the top and Carter catches him with a right before slamming him down to the mat. Carter hits a short-arm clothesline (similar to Okada’s Rainmaker but without the oomph). Carter holds one finger in the ear then finishes off Curry Man with the ONE PERCENTER for the 1…2…3.

Winner [via Pinfall]: Ethan Carter III (3:36)

POST-MATCH: EC3 does his “I’m a Carter” spiel then poses for the crowd.

Match #2: Velvet Sky Vs. Lei’D Tapa [w/ *TNA Knockouts Champion* Gail Kim]

Tapa sends Sky into the corner. Sky runs at her and gets sent right back to the mat off a lockup. Sky ducks a splash attempt and hits a series of kicks, bringing Tapa to one knee. Tapa picks Sky up and rams her spine-first into the opposite corner. Sky dodges another splash attempt and applies a backpack sleeper. Tapa snapmares Sky off then tries another corner move but Sky once again dodges and hits a series of kicks. Sky hits the ropes and Kim trips her, prompting the ref to send her to the back.

Tapa gets in the ref’s face then hits Sky with a shoulderblock. Tapa stomps the fallen Sky and rams the back of her head repeatedly against the canvas. Tapa picks Sky up by the hair and throws her into both corners. Tapa this time hits a corner splash then poses as the crowd…doesn’t react much. Tapa goozles Sky to her feet then lifts her up for a double choke. Sky escapes via knees then kicks at the hamstrings. Sky gets a running start and runs right into a big boot. Tapa goozles Sky again and hits a fireman’s carry into a sitout Ace Crusher for the 1…2…3.

Winner [via Pinfall]: Lei’D Tapa (3:38)

Eric Young and ODB are in the ring with the turkey suit. EY is the “high chancellor of the Turkey Bowl”. Zema Ion is at his DJ table and introduces The Bromans to the ring. Ion repeatedly hits the horn button on his DJ set and all three fist bump. This is actually wicked awesome and I feel weird admitting that. Their opponents, Norv Fernum & Dewey Barnes, make their way out second wearing Member’s Only jackets. Robbie E gets on the mic and tells Fernum he looks like a hariless hampster and Ion hits the horn button and laughs his face off. Jessie Godderz is next on the mic and says they are the World Tag Team Champions and Fernum/Barnes are nothing. Godderz slaps Barnes then they turn their back as Ion blows the horn again. The Bromans turn back to their opponents and Fernum/Barnes attack.

The Funeral of The Aces & Eights

We go to the funeral home where the pastor goes into his spiel. Magnus is checking his phone and Eric Young is crying for reasons he doesn’t know. The pastor asks if they have any words to speak. Mr. Anderson emerges from the casket to say some words. Anderson says he was held captive by the group for a year and a half. Anderson asks if anyone has anything to say. Kurt Angle gets up to say some words. Angle says he had a couple of friends in The Aces & Eights, D’Lo Brown and Wes Brisco. Angle pulls out a D’Lo bobblehead and throws it into the casket, wishing him luck in his next life. Samoa Joe is up next and offers a six-pack of beer to put in the casket, but then decides not to waste them and hands it out except to Angle for obvious reasons. HA. Joe toasts to The Aces & Eights, saying “may you ride your mopeds to the shores of Valhalla”. Mike Tenay gets to the podium and says unfortunately Taz will be with him at the broadcast table but fortunately he’s able to lay Taz’s kutte to rest as well as Miss Tessmacher’s booty shorts.

Eric Young takes the podium next and pulls out a turkey costume, saying he came here to shed a tear for the men who will never wear this. Young puts the suit in the casket and starts crying as Tenay and Joe console him. Mr. Anderson retakes the podium and pulls out the rubber hammer to lay to rest…but instead of doing that he keeps it because it’s a perfectly good hammer. Bully Ray all of a sudden walks in and tells Anderson to sleep with one eye open, in the best interest of himself and his pregnant wife. Ray says everyone looks at death as the last sleep but he looks at it as the final awakening. Ray walks out to end the segment.

Winner Winner, Turkey Dinner

Rockstar Spud is in the ring. A feast is prepared on a banquet table in front of him. Spud invites the winners of tonight’s matches to the ring to enjoy the feast. Everyone except Lei’D Tapa and Zema Ion sit down at the table. Spud goes into a spiel but Bobby Roode grabs the mic. Roode asks Chris Sabin why Velvet Sky is here since this is a table for winner’s only. Sabin angrily gets up…and says he’s absolutely right, shooing Sky away from the table. Ion takes the empty seat. Roode tells the people to feast their eyes on a table of true winners and as a group they’d like to thank Dixie Carter for their careers in TNA and the lovely Turkey dinner. Christopher Daniels says they have a lot to be thankful for, including being well-endowed, then Frankie Kazarian says he’s happy to celebrate with E.G.O.

Gail Kim is next and thanks Lei’D Tapa for being so dominant and for herself for being the prettiest and most dominant Knockout in TNA history. Sabin is up next and says he’s very thankful for his very luxurious hair on his head as well as being the greatest X-Division Champion of all-time and…Velvet Sky too. Jessie Godderz says he’s thankful for Phil Heath and DJ Zema Ion. Robbie E says The Bromans are thankful for not having to wear the turkey suits as well as for being the greatest Tag Team Champs of all-time brooooo. Roode then grabs the mic again and is thankful for the real Thanksgiving last month (because Canada) as well as defeating Kurt Angle three different times. Roode then says everyone in the world will be thankful when he becomes the next World Champion.

The winners go to eat but out comes Kurt Angle to crash the overly public feast. Angle says he doesn’t see a ring full of winners: he sees a ring full of turkeys. Angle says while everyone cheated to get into the ring tonight none of them will get to enjoy the fruits of their labor. Roode asks Angle to come in and take all of them on. Angle says if it was just him and Roode he’d kick their ass but Roode’s not alone…and neither is he. Out come the good guys from the matches tonight (except Magnus). Naturally a food fight/brawl breaks out, Velvet Sky hitting Kim with pumpkin pie. Everything gets decimated as Rockstar Spud freaks out at what’s happening. Eric Young hits Kazarian and Daniels with the turkey. Norv Fernum and Dewey Barnes hit The Bromans with stereo top-rope splashes and the crowd chants “TNA!” as the good guys celebrate this tremendous waste of food with some beers (except Angle).
