Here’s   Impact  in  case  you  missed  it:

From  The  Impact  Zone  in  Orlando,  Florida:

1.  THE  OPENING  BOUT:  A  NON-TITLE  LUMBERJACK  MATCH:  TNA World  Heavyweight  Champion  Bobby  Roode  vs.  Sting.

THE  WINNER:  STING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOTE:  THIS  WAS  THE  FIRST  TIME,  IN  A  LONG  TIME,  THAT  IMPACT   HAD  AN   OPENING  MATCH. 

2.  TNA  X  DIVISION  CHAMPIONSHIP:    Austin Aries  (Champion)   vs.  Chris  Sabin  (Challenger).

THE  WINNER,  AND  STILL  TNA  X  DIVISION  CHAMPION:  AUSTIN  ARIES.

3.  TNA  TELEVISION  CHAMPIONSHIP:  Devon  (Champion)  vs.  Jeff  Hardy  (Challenger).

NOTE:  For  this  match,  the  viewers  were  instructed  to  log  on  to  IMPACTWrestling.com  to  vote  for  Devon’s  opponent.  The  choices  were  Jeff  Hardy,  Rob  van  Dam,  Mr.  Anderson,  and  former  TNA  Television  Champions  Robbie  E.  and  Robbie  T.  Jeff  Hardy  was  chosen  by  the  viewers  with  over  40%  of  the  votes.  The  match  was  thrown  out  due  to  the   outside  interference  of  both  Robbie  E.  and  Robbie  T.

4.  TNA  GUT  CHECK:  Joey  Ryan’s  Fate.

THE  JUDGES:  Bruce  Pritchard,  Al Snow,  and  TNA  Color  Commentator  Tazz.

THE  VERDICT:  JOEY  RYAN  DIDN’T  WIN  A  TNA  CONTRACT.

HOW  THE  JUDGES  VOTED:  Bruce  Pritchard:  No,   Al  Snow:  Yes,   Tazz: No.

5.  THE  MAIN  EVENT:  TNA  World  Tag  Team  Champion  “The  Fallen  Angel”  Christopher  Daniels  vs.  “The  Phenomenal”  A.J.  Styles.

THE  WINNER:  “THE  PHENOMENAL”  A.J.  STYLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ANALYSIS:  As  you  can  see,  I  again  made  no  picks  for  “Match/Matches  of  the  Night”,  because  the  whole  show  was   GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I  wonder  how  the  Knockouts  Division   will  react  to  Brooke  Hogan  (For  those  who  may  not  know,  she’s  Hulk  Hogan’s  oldest  daughter)   as  the  new  Executive  In  Charge  Of   The   Knockouts  Division.  I  was  really  hoping  that  Joey  Ryan  would  win  a  TNA  contract.  That,  and  it  appears  that  TNA  President  Dixie  Carter  has  had  enough  of  Christopher  Daniels  invading  the privacies  of   both  her  and  A.J.  Styles.    I  wonder  how  that  might  blow  over  next  week………
