By Cody A. Springer

We recap last week when James Storm tried to find out who gave him a concussion. It turned out to be Kurt Angle.

Kurt Angle then makes his way down from the ramp. He says he despises when people accuse him of attacking people from behind. He says he didn’t attack James Storm, James just didn’t see him coming. He says don’t say that again or he might take it personally. James Storm’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring to confront Kurt. He says that the conflict between him and Kurt was more than personal. He dares Kurt to attack him face to face. He said that it became personal when James Storm screwed Kurt over for the World Championship, so all he did was screw James Storm out of the World Championship in return. Kurt says he didn’t come here to fight. Kurt then calls on Christopher Daniels, Jeff Jarrett and Bully Ray to come and fight Storm. James says that Kurt gave a message to his daughter, and his daughter sent him a message back. Storm then punches Kurt in the face, and all hell breaks loose. Storm quickly gets away from the group before AJ Styles, RVD and Mr. Anderson join him in fighting Angle’s contingent.

We return with Eric Young and Rudy Charles on a weird tandem bike EY built. He tells Rudy to get in the cooler and Rudy pulls out a turkey suit. Eric starts mumbling about Robbie E as we go back live to the Impact Zone. We go to another recap of last week with the confrontation between Sting and Mexican America, and the Tag Team Championship match between Mexican America, and Crimson & Matt Morgan.

Karen orders Tara, Brooke Tessmacher, Velvet Sky, Winter and Angelina Love to make their way out to the ring. They do so, and Karen talks about how the men want more skin, even though Karen wants less. So, tonight we’re going to have the first ever Lingerie Ball. The knockouts look like they aren’t very happy, but they reluctantly leave to go get changed.

We return with Christy Hemme interviewing the knockouts. Tara says that she’s not happy because she’s here to be a wrestler, not naked. Ms. Tessmacher says that she models at home, but here she wants to kick some ass. Velvet says it’s degrading to the division, and says that it’s because Karen Jarrett has it out for Velvet. We go to Gail Kim’s locker room, where Mickie comes in and says they need to talk in private. So the camera is able to see the entire thing through a crack in the door, and Mickie basically calls Gail a hypocrite, then attacks her. Madison comes in to save Gail, but Gail shoves her out of the way, and beats down Mickie. Gail kicks the camera guy, and he falls down as we go to commercial.

We return with Karen irate that the outfits weren’t skimpy enough, and that next week Karen will provide the outfits. We return to the Impact Zone where Jeff Hardy makes his way out wearing the mask he wore at Turning Point. The mask comes off and it’s actually Jeff Jarrett. He ponders why everybody loves Jeff Hardy so much. He says the reason why the fans love Hardy so much is because they relate to him so much, because they’re all failures and embarrassments. Hardy rushes out and brawls with Jarrett. Out comes Immortal and they beat down Hardy until everybody else that’s in the tag match later tonight except Storm and Angle comes out. Security comes out, and Jarrett is able to drive Hardy’s skull into the steel steps twice. We go to commercial with Immortal standing tall.
