10/21/10 TNA Impact Recap (Rob Van Damned)

Oct 22, 2010 - by Jason Graening

A recap of last week’s show that featured the formation of Immortal kicks off Impact. Mr. Anderson’s music then fills the Impact Zone as he comes down to the ring with his left arm in a sling. Anderson calls Jeff Hardy out to the ring, but Rob Van Dam instead comes out and joins Anderson in the ring. RVD tells Anderson to wait in line for a title that RVD never actually lost.

Jeff Hardy appears on the big screen and says that they are all messed up but he did both of them wrong. Hardy asks them both for forgiveness as Eric Bischoff’s music hits and he comes out of the entrance tunnel. Bischoff says he feels somewhat responsible for Anderson’s injury and also wants his forgiveness.

Bischoff says he doesn’t think he has challenged Anderson enough and decides to book Kazarian in an Ultimate X match, and if he wins he will get a title shot at Turning Point. As for RVD, he will be teaming up with Sabu to face Beer Money and tries to plant an idea in his head that people have been calling him on the phone wanting to join Immortal.

A new Impact intro hits as we are welcomed to this week’s show that will feature the in-ring debut of Mickie James, Beer Money against RVD & Sabu and Kazarian against Mr. Anderson in an Ultimate X match. We are then treated to some TMZ footage of Shore as Cookie is complaining about last weeks confrontation with Jwoww as we head into a commercial break.

RVD is in the locker room with EV2 and is trying to find out if anyone has been talking to Eric Bischoff. Raven tells RVD to go smoke another bowl, which sets him off and the two get into a mild scuffle until they are seperated.

The ReAction footage of the Cookie/Jwoww confrontation from last week is aired while the voiceover guy wonders if this is the last we will ever see of Jwoww. We see an extended version of the TMZ footage where Cookie says Jwoww is scared and will won’t bother to step back into her world.

Match 1: Amazing Red vs. Robbie E.
Robbie and Red go back and forth in the opening moments of the match until Red takes control after hitting a few kicks that earns him a near fall. The fans begin to get behind Red but Robbie is able to gain control of the match and picks up the pin fall after hitting a neckbreaker. After the match, Robbie gets on the microphone and calls out Jay Lethal and says he is going to bling out the X Division Title as the crowd begins a loud “boring” chant.

Footage of D’Angelo Dinero sitting in a club is aired where he says he intends to fight the fight against Fortune, even if he has to start at the top. He then calls out AJ Styles and says he wants to start at the top and says it’s time for them to fight.

Footage of a book signing of Mick Foley is aired. During an answer and question segment, Brian Kendrick is there where he begins reading a passage from the book and asks if there is any deeper meaning to what he wrote. Foley tells Kendrick to take it in his own interpitation and says it is rewarding for him that people can do that with his writing.

We then see Fortune hanging out in the back where Beer Money is talking down about having to face RVD & Sabu. Kazarian also talks some smack about taking on a “one-armed asshole” in an Ultimate X match. AJ Styles also mentions that he accepts the Pope’s challenge and will even put the TNA Television Championship on the line. For good measure, the group Ices Ric Flair one more time as Eric Bischoff walks in and says in order to make a fair regime, he orders that if anyone from Fortune interferes in the Television Title match, Styles will forfeit the title to the Pope. Fortune is dumbfounded with the move and Bischoff says it is a order handed down by Hulk Hogan.

We head into the Knockouts locker room where Miss Tessmacher is talking to the Beautiful People and is asking them for help on learning how to wrestle. The Beautiful People disregard her plea and tell her to get out of their locker room. Velvet Sky and Lacey Von Erich then leave the room and we then see Katie Lea Burchill standing behind Angelina Love. She says her name is Winter and is a great admirer of Angelina’s. Velvet then comes back into the room and Winter disappears and thinks that Angelina is talking to herself.

Match 2: D’Angelo Dinero vs. AJ Styles (Street Fight – TNA Television Championship)
The Pope does his usual entrance but there wasn’t any money falling from the sky like there usually is. Taz says that it may be because the economy is in a rough state. This match starts near the entrance tunnel and down the ramp as the Pope sends Styles into the steel steps. Dinero then sends Styles flying into the ring post before finally rolling him into the ring.

Styles begins to mount some offense but the Pope sends him down to the canvas after hitting some rapid fire punches where he gets a near fall over the champion. Abyss then comes into the ring and beats down the Pope and hits a Black Hole Slam and Styles then covers as Earl Hebner counts a slow three count to give Styles the victory. After the match, Fortune comes out to applaud their teammate as Eric Bischoff also comes out and gives Styles a thumbs up.

Sarita is shown getting ready for her match against Mickie James. Sarita says she has heard a lot about her but she hasn’t done anything against Sarita. Sarita then says she plans to welcome her to Impact.

After a break, we see the Pope gingerly walking around the backstage area where he runs into Samoa Joe. The Pope wants to know where he was when he was getting beat down earlier and suggests that they form a team. Joe says he doesn’t play for anyone and walks away. Meanwhile, Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair are seen in the office congratulating each other on a job well done on the street fight match.

Team 3D’s major announcement at Bound for Glory is aired and the two of them give their thoughts on why they decided to retire as a tag team. Brother Ray says they realized they conquered everything and there is no other tag team title left to win. They say they will wrestle their final match together at Turning Point before they move on to other things outside of wrestling. Ray says if they win or lose, it will be a win-win situation at Turning Point.

The docu-cam is with the Motorcity Machine Guns and are wondering if they are going to accept Team 3D’s challenge as they are playing catch and talking with Velvet Sky. Generation Me then step in and stir up some trouble as the Guns clock them both and walk away.

Footage from ReAction is aired where Jeff Jarrett talks about signing Kurt Angle and how he ended making his life a living hell. Jarrett talks about turning the tide as we see footage of Jarrett brutally assaulting Angle last week on Impact. Jarrett is heading towards the ring and says he has regretted his actions over the last seven days and says it didn’t have to happen as we head into a commercial break.

Jeff Jarrett comes down to the ring and says that he came out to publically apologize to Kurt Angle for what he did last week. Jarrett says he deeply regrets not kicking the crap out him more than he actually did. Jarrett says he is back on top of the mountain and Angle is gone from TNA forever. Jarrett talks about stripping Angle of his pride, dignity, honor, and his career, but he is then cut off by Samoa Joe’s music.

Joe walks quickly down to the ring and heads after Jarrett but Murphy and Gunner cut him off. They handcuff Joe and Jarrett begins attacking him but Joe is able to start choking Jarrett out with the handcuffs. Jarrett is able to get out and then tosses Joe over the side of the ramp and down onto the floor. Mike Tenay stands up and confronts Jarrett about his actions and tells him that he turned his back on everyone in TNA as the fans let Jarrett know about their thoughts.

Match 3: Beer Money vs. Rob Van Dam & Sabu
RVD and Sabu start off strong against Beer Money and pick up a couple of near falls in the process. Robert Roode, though, is able to turn the tables on Sabu and begins to pick apart and wear down Sabu in the middle of the ring. Beer Money then use quick tags in and out to continue working over Sabu but he is able to finally counter their offense with a tornado DDT. RVD is tagged into the match and the two are able to hit a few double team moves as this match begins to break down. Sabu then brings a chair into the ring and is tries to throw it at Storm but he ducks out of the way and nails RVD. Roode then covers RVD for the pin fall.

After the match, Sabu tries to apologize to RVD for what happened as Mike Tenay wonders if that was an accident of if it was planned. RVD pushes Sabu and the two square off as EV2 run out to the ring to break it up.

Mickie James is sitting on a mechanical bull and says that she knows Sarita is a world class athlete, but she is a world class champion, and that’s no bull.

Mickie goes out to the floor and Sarita sends her into the steel steps before rolling her back into the ring and picking up a couple of near falls. Sarita then continues on the attack but Mickie fires back with a series of clotheslines and takes her down with a headscissors before hitting her with a superkick to win the match.

Once the match is done, Tara sneaks into the ring and takes down Mickie from behind. Tara chokes her out for a bit before hitting her with the Widow’s Peak. Tara then gets in Mickie’s face and tells her that she is in her world.

Mr. Anderson is talking about his arm injury and having to get through an Ultimate X match to get his revenge on Jeff Hardy. Anderson says injury or not but promises that he will whoop the crap out of Jeff Hardy.

We then see Mr. Anderson heading towards the ring and he is attacked from behind by Fortune. They then pick him up and carry him up to the entrance ramp before beating on him some more and focusing on his injured shoulder.

Match 5: Kazarian vs. Mr. Anderson (Ultimate X Match)
While Anderson is laid out on the entrance ramp, Kazarian goes to the ring and orders the referee to ring the bell to start the match. Kazarian begins going for the X but Anderson gets up, runs to the ring, and pulls Kazarian off the cables. The fight then heads out to the floor as we head into a commercial break.

We return to the match to see Kazarian once again making his way towards the X but Anderson swings Kazarian far enough to make him fall down to the canvas. Anderson the tries to make it onto the cables but he is limited by his injured shoulder.

Morgan then puts Kazarian on his shoulders and guides him to the X as Kazarian pulls it down and wins the match.

As Fortune is celebrating in the ring, Anderson grabs a lead pipe from beneath the ring and takes out Morgan before chasing the rest of Fortune out of the ring.

Eric Bischoff and Ric Flair is seen walking in the parking lot and getting into a SUV. It begins to leave but Kurt Angle is seen standing in the way with a lead pipe in his hands. Angle then pulls the driver out of the vehicle and begins taking his frustration out on the SUV and busts out the back window.
