Report by: Josh Boutwell of Wrestleview.com
Impact opens up with highlights from last week and Bully Ray makes his way onto the stage. Bully says that as long as he has air in his lungs he swears that he will keep on fighting. He says that he is more motivated now than he has ever been in his career, and that the word is probably better suited as “obsessed” rather than motivated. He says that he is obsessed with six people in TNA, those people have bulls eyes on their backs that he promises to the fans that he will put one of them through the tables that he has set up on the stage. They’re all standing upright with trash bags covering them. Bully rips away the trash bags revealing names spray painted on all of them. Lashley, EC3, Kenny King, MVP, Rockstar Spud, and Dixie’s names are painted on the tables. Bully says that every person in the wrestling business wants to see Dixie go through a table. Bully gets in the ring and says that he doesn’t care if it is one of them or all of them someone better get out in the ring and fight him right now. He says that whether it is now or a month from now every single one of them will go through tables.
MVP makes his way out dressed to compete. MVP says he isn’t the kind of man that reacts well to threats so Bully should rethink what he’s doing. He says he doesn’t care about what the brainless puppets in the crowd say and parrot what Bully says. He says that no one is going through a table but if Bully wants to fight he would be happy to handle that, however that would be no fun because why should he have all the fun himself when he has friends to help. “It ain’t no fun if the boys can’t have none,” MVP says as Lashley and King walk out. EC3 and Spud then swarm the ring from behind Bully and EC3 clips Bully’s knee! King slides into the ring and begins peppering Bully with punches as well. Bully comes in and elbow drops Bully while Spud rakes his eyes. MVP hits a Knee Drop on Bully and then Lashley holds Bully while MVP beats on him.
EC3 grabs one of the tables, the one painted with Spud’s name, and sets it up in the ring. EY runs out along with Austin Aries and The Wolves and the fight is on! The babyfaces clear the ring all but Spud who hides under the table. The Wolves grab him as Aries says that Bully isn’t the only one obsessed with the heels in this company. Aries says that the numbers game won’t come into effect tonight and suggests a six man tag tonight! Bully says that if MVP and his boys had any balls they would have that match next! Bully says that MVP can take his chain and shove it up his ass because they’re about to remind MVP of what is going to happen to all of them.
EY hands Spud to Bully who then Super Bombs him off the top through the table!

Backstage EC3 approaches Dixie and tells her about what happened with Bully. Dixie flippantly says “poor Spud” and says that they have very important business to deal with tonight with MVP.
Tigre Uno vs. Bram w/Magnus
Remember all that I’ve been saying for months about not wanting Tigre to just get lost in the shuffle, yeah I think we’re about to see that come to fruition here.

After the match Bram continues to assault Tigre. He pulls a steel turnbuckle out from under the ring and goes to hit Tigre with it, but Magnus stops him and asks him what’s wrong with him. Magnus says he doesn’t give a damn about Tigre but wants to know what’s wrong with Bram. He says that Tigre is a world class athlete but he is half Bram’s size. Bram says it doesn’t matter how big or small someone is he would have beaten him anyway. Bram says that the old Magnus would have ripped his mask off and kicked his head off. Bram says when he looks at Magnus he doesn’t see the old Magnus. Magnus says maybe Bram needs a bigger test and mockingly says that maybe he should learn at the feet at the master Bram. Magnus says maybe Bram needs to prove himself against Willow and Bram smiles and says he’ll do it right now if he has to!
Gunner approaches Anderson backstage about them teaming up tonight. Anderson asks Gunner if he is out of his mind about the issue with Samuel Shaw. Gunner says he just needs some help but Anderson just says he’s a creep living in his mom’s basement.
Brittany approaches Madison backstage and asks Madison if she will team with her against BP tonight. Madison sits her down and tells her that she saw what they did to her last week. She says that she tried to warn her before that she isn’t ready for them. Madison says it took her years to figure out how to deal with people like her. She says that if she wrestles them again they’ll find away to destroy her. Madison tells Brittany to promise her that she won’t have the match which she agrees to.
The BroMans vs. Gunner & Mr. Anderson
Bro-Mans attack the babyfaces as they climb in the ring. They double team Gunner in their corner taking control of the match early.

The Menagerie come out and Rebel is swinging around some kind of neon dildos or something. Bro-Mans act creeped out by The Menagerie as they surround them. Robbie and Jesse escape but The Freak catches him and Press Slams the ever loving hell out of him.
Backstage Brittany approaches Gail and asks her to team with her tonight. Gail accepts the match and Brittany hugs her.
Dixie and EC3 come down to the ring. Dixie says that she and MVP started a conversation last week and she wants him to come out so they can finish it tonight. MVP comes out along with his crew and asks her what she wants. Dixie tells MVP not to be condescending to her and that they can do this the easy way or the Dixie Carter way. MVP says that he thought she said everything she wanted to last week but Dixie says that “thug” interrupted her. She says they were just getting started and that Dixie says she left off at the part where MVP might just need her. MVP says he’s in charge and he and his crew have the power and people actually respect them unlike Dixie. MVP says he fights EY at Slammiversary for the World Title so they have everything pretty much in hand.
Dixie says she could mind her own business and go back to Nashville or she could get on her Jet and go to Dallas to have a meeting with the TNA Board of Directors to show them the abuse of power that the Director of Operations has been showing. MVP says that Dixie is so sexy when she threatens him but she says that she isn’t threatening him because this is the reality. MVP says that reality is all about perspective and he and Dixie have a different vision. MVP says he has access to a lot more money than Dixie even knows about and Dixie calls it “dirty money.” MVP says it doesn’t matter if it is dirty money or money that was inherited while pointing at her because money is power and he has access to a lot of it. Are they suggesting MVP is a drug kingpin or something, what the hell? MVP says that if Dixie wants to play a game of chicken and see who blinks first then they should let the games begin.
EY walks out to the ring along with Bully Ray carrying a pipe! Bully is carrying his chain. EY says he and Bully are into the finer things in life and nothing would be finer than seeing every person in the ring right now go through a table. MVP asks EY if he would like to bash MVP’s head in with that pipe and even though EY admits to being crazy he isn’t that crazy. MVP says EY has a lot of heart but he doesn’t have enough heart to beat him. He says at Slammiversary he will take the TNA World Title from him and after that he will fire EY so EY can go do something he’s good at like fishing. EY hits the ring but Bully pulls him back before anything happens. Bully says that there is a time and place for everything.
MVP says that is absolutely right and looks at King holding him back. MVP asks EY if Bully is his dad and asks when he started taking orders from Bully. MVP says he’s known a lot of bad asses in his life but Bully Ray is just another New Yorker with a loud mouth. Bully starts to get in the ring but EY stops him this time and reminds him that there is a time and a place. MVP says since they have so much energy tonight MVP will book them in a match against each other tonight. MVP then appoints EC3 as the guest referee for the match tonight. Bully refuses but MVP says he will face EY tonight or he will be fired. Bully again refuses and tells him to go ahead and fire him. MVP asks if that is what he wants and then Dixie asks if he is quitting or does he want MVP to fire him.
Dixie asks Bully if he quits then who will fight EC3 and Dixie. Dixie says EY doesn’t have the stomach to get down in the gutter to fight where this war was going to happen. Dixie says he thought Bully was a New Yorker and New Yorkers don’t quit. Bully says he will never quit until he gives every wrestling fan what they want to see, him putting Dixie through a table. Bully says unlike Dixie the fans actually want him here. Bully says he will make good on his promise to put every one of them through a table.
A vignette focusing on Kurt Angle’s injury is shown. Angle says his knee is getting better slowly but surely. He thanks the fans for their support and he couldn’t do it without the fan support.

Angelina attempts a clothesline but Brittany ducks and hits a dropkick. Brittany hits a Snapmare followed by a running back kick. Brittany celebrates the move and Gail tells her to focus.

Velvet chokes Brittany in the ropes and hits a Snapmare followed by a field goal kick to the back. Velvet then hits a Sliding Dropkick for a two count. Velvet hits a series of forearms on Brittany and then whips her into the ropes, but Brittany slides through her legs and then trips her and rolls forward into a jackknife pin for a nearfall. Brittany whips Velvet into the corner and hits the Handspring Back Elbow. Brittany celebrates again too much which allows Velvet to grab her by the hair and slams her to the mat.

Backstage EY approaches Bully and Bully reminds him that if he beats EY tonight then he could be considered #1 Contender for the title so may the best man win.
Back from the break a pissed off Brittany says she needs to talk to Madison. Madison comes out and Brittany wants to know why Madison rejected her tonight. Madison says this whole thing is getting a little weird for her, and she tried to tell Brittany that the issues she is having with BP have been going on for years. She says that there are some issues that run really deeply that only the three of them know of them so whatever needs to be handled will be handled between the three of them. She says that she won’t held responsible for getting Brittany involved in that. Brittany says Madison won’t be responsible because she will take full responsibility for whatever happens. Brittany says she just wants to be with Madison, me too Brittany me too. Madison asks her what she just said and Brittany repeats it. She gets really close to Madison’s face and Madison shoves her away. Madison tells her this went a little bit too far and she needs to keep her distance. Brittany screams at Madison and says that she has done nothing but great things for her. She wants to know why Madison doesn’t like her and asks her what she has to do for Madison to accept her. Madison rips the microphone away from her and then Angelina and Velvet walk out.
Angelina mockingly says Madison just broke a young girl’s heart and Velvet says that everyone calls them the mean girls but look what Madison just did. Velvet says Brittany just witnessed the real sting of the “Queen Bee” and that nobody but them know the real Madison Rayne. Velvet says THEY made Madison the way she is. Madison says God forbid that she was ever anything like them and the asshole fans start chanting “boring.” Madison tells Angelina that she needs to be worrying about her title because she has a rematch clause which she is cashing in next week. Madison tells Angelina to shine the belt up for her because next week it is coming back to its rightful owner.
MVP and his crew approach EC3 in the back and MVP says just because they and EC3’s redneck aunt have an issue doesn’t mean they can’t get along. King says they’re going to have EC3’s back tonight.
Kenny King walks out before the Main Event and tells Christy that her services are no longer are needed because he will be the guest ring announcer for the match.
Special Referee: Ethan Carter III
Bully Ray vs. “Showtime” Eric Young
King introduces Bully Ray as being from “Hell’s Toilet, New York” and weighing 742 pounds. He introduces EY as the “bearded wonder.” In a funny moment King tried to climb over the guardrail to get away from Bully and EY but the fans wouldn’t let him so he had to go find a different spot where fans weren’t standing. Lashley is announced as the special enforcer for this match and MVP is the special timekeeper. Bully and EY finally lockup and Bully surprises EY with an armdag. They lockup again and this time Bully Hip Tosses EY. They lockup a third time and Bully Scoop Slams EY. A fourth lockup leads to a series of armdrags by EY and then a dropkick.
